Do Not Be Inclined Towards The Scholar Or The Worshipper Until Each Of Them Is One Upright Upon The Religion Of Allaah



[Imaam Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab (rahimahullaah) stated in Masaa'ilil Jaahiliyyah (The 9th Mas-alah)]

They followed and took their example from their sinful and immoral scholars and worshippers.  So Allaah said:

''O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder (them) from the Way of Allaah (i.e. Allaah's Religion of Islaamic Monotheism).'' 9:34

And the saying of Allaah:

''Exceed not the limits in your religion (by believing in something) other than the truth, and do not follow the vain desires of people who went astray in times gone by, and who misled many, and strayed (themselves) from the Right Path.'' 5:77

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above saying:

And from the Masaa'ilil Jaahiliyyah, is that (they) were guided by the sinful scholars.  The Faasiq (sinner) is one who deviates from obedience to Allaah by knowledge and action, and the sinful scholars are those who do not act upon their knowledge, or those who utter lies against Allaah whilst being aware of that; saying, this is permissible and this is impermissible, whilst knowing that they are liars, and in order that they may obtain what they covet, and to follow desires under the auspices that they are scholars and that the people consider them trustworthy.
  
And the sinful worshippers are those who act without knowledge.  The people consider them trustworthy and say: ''These ones are righteous''

So do not be inclined towards the scholar or the worshipper until each one of them is one upright upon the religion of Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal).  He (subhaanahu-wata-aalaa) said about the Jews and the Christians:

''O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder (them) from the Way of Allaah (i.e. Allaah's Religion of Islaamic Monotheism)'' 9:34

To be continued inshaa-Allaah

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) continues.......

'They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allaah' [9:31]

They (i.e. the rabbis and the monks) made lawful for them that which is unlawful and they obeyed them, and they made unlawful for them that which is lawful and they obeyed them.  So they (i.e. the rabbis and the monks) became lords besides Allaah wal-iyaadho-billaah; because to declare something lawful or unlawful is the right of Allaah (Jalla-Wa-Alaa). It is not for anyone to declare something lawful or unlawful according to his desires and self-interest, and (for the purpose) of appeasing the people and being in conformity with them.

At present there are those who play tricks with the Sharee'ah.  They make lawful that which is unlawful in order to be in conformity with the people, and to please the people.  And with these assumptions of theirs, they solicit trickery and make concessions or lie against Allaah; that Allaah has declared this lawful and that unlawful for the benefit of such and such (individual).  These ones are the sinful scholars.  And the faasiq (the sinner) is the one who deviates from obedience to Allaah.

Allaah (Ta-aalaa) said:

'O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the ahbaar (Jewish) rabbis and the ruhbaan (Christian) monks'

This is a warning for the believers.  The 'ahbaar' are the scholars, and in most cases it is a reference to the Jewish scholars; and the 'ruhbaan' are the worshippers, and in most cases it is a reference to the Christian worshippers.  The Christians are referred to with monasticism and the Jews with knowledge, but the Jews are those who have earned the Anger of Allaah and the Christians are those who have been led astray.  Allaah (Jalla-Wa-Alaa) has commanded us to say in every rakah in the prayer:

'Guide us to the Straight Way.  The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace'; and these are the people of knowledge and action.

'Not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger'; these are the people who possess knowledge but do not act, and they are the evil sinful scholars.

'nor of those who went astray'; these are the monks from amongst the Christians and other than them.  They worship Allaah without evidence and proof, rather they worship Allaah through innovations, newly invented matters and superstitions.

Allaah forbade us (from following/resembling) the evil sinful scholars and the astray worshippers.  And He (subhaanah) has commanded us to stick to the truth, with evidence from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).

To be continued.....Inshaa-Allaah

Sheikh Saaleh al Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) continues.....

And at present, when someone desires something he would say, 'such and such a person has given a verdict on this (affair)' without considering whether it has a basis in the Book and the Sunnah.  And you say to him, 'this verdict is wrong.'  He says, 'it has nothing to do with me' as long as the verdict was given by such and such (person).  

And if the verdict is not in agreement with his desires, he says, 'this verdict is not correct or it is a harsh one.'  And they gather lies and the mistakes of the scholars in a book and present it to the people, and spread it amongst the people with their assumptions, saying: 'the Religion of Islaam is easy.  It does not make things uneasy for the people.'  

And when it is said to them, 'examine it (i.e. these verdicts) under the Book and Sunnah', they say, 'these are statements of the scholars'.  Is the scholar greater than the Book and the Sunnah?  Are his statements not to be examined under the Book and the Sunnah!? This is how the people of desires act wal-iyaadho-billaah. They are those who 'took their rabbis and monks to be lords besides Allaah' [9:31]

And when they are forbidden from innovation about which the Messenger of Allaah warned against, they say, 'such and such a person acts upon this and he is a scholar or that he is a righteous person.  And this is acted upon by the people of such and such a country and they are people who possess righteousness and piety.'  We say: Righteousness and piety does not suffice, rather there has to be conformity to the Book and the Sunnah.

Therefore, to take the statements of the scholars and the worshippers as sound legal verdicts without examination under the Book and the Sunnah is a way of the people of the pre-Islaamic era of ignorance; and they are those who take their rabbis and their monks as lords besides Allaah.

The Conferences Of The Salafis Are Free From Those Whom The Ulama Of Salafiyyah Have Warned Against With Clear Daleel

The Conferences Of The Salafis Are Free From The Open Callers To Hizbiyyah

The Conferences Of The Salafis Are Free From Those Who Accompany And Sit With The People Of Bidah

The Conferences Of The Salafis Are Free From Those Who Praise The People Of Bidah And Desires




Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:

'If I see a man from Ahlus Sunnah it is as if I have seen a man from the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).  If I see a man of innovation, it is as if I have seen a man from the hypocrites.'

Sheikh Saaleh al Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above statement of Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad: 'If I see a man from Ahlus Sunnah it is as if I have seen a man from the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).';    because he (i.e. the man of sunnah) is one who follows the Companions; and because the one who follows them is from them and he is as Imaam Maalik says: 'They will be in the company of those whom Allaah has bestowed His Grace' [4:69].  Therefore, whoever follows them (i.e. the Companions) is from them.

And concerning the statement of Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad: 'If I see a man of innovation, it is as if I have seen a man from the hypocrites.'

Sheikh Saaleh al Fawzaan commented on the above statement saying: If you see a man from the people of innovations and desires--those in opposition to Ahlus Sunnah, it as if you have seen a man from the hypocrites--those who claim an apparent Islaam whilst they are disbelievers in secret, wishing to be deceitful.  So the people of desires and bidah have a resemblance to the hypocrites, because they show an apparent Islaam, however they innovate and do not follow the Sunnah.  This is a characteristic of the hypocrites.

Imaam Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: 'whoever lends an ear to a person of innovation, has left the protection of Allaah and is entrusted to it (i.e. to the innovation)'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above statement: 'whoever lends an ear to a person of innovation, has left the protection of Allaah:'  

The hadith about fleeing from ahlul bidah and not to sit with them, nor to accompany them has proceeded; so whoever accompanies them and listens to their statements and does not reject them, will be destroyed alongside them.  It is not permissible for you to lend an ear and listen to them whilst saying: 'I am a believer with strong Eemaan and I am well acquainted with the aqeedah, and they (i.e. the innovators) cannot have an effect on me.'  This is self deception (and) trial for the people; for being distant from (the innovators) and not listening to their false statements is Safety.  As for lending your ear to them, then you will become worthy of being put to trail alongside them.  

And concerning of Sufyaan: 'And is entrusted to it (i.e. to the innovation)'

Sheikh Saaleh Al Fawzaan commented; because Allaah safeguards the one who seeks safety with Him but the one who listens to innovation is worthy of being put to trial by it.  He is entrusted to it and is removed from the Protection of Allaah (subhaanahu-Wata-Aalaa).

Deprived Of Wisdom



Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: 'Whoever sits with a person of innovation has not been given wisdom'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (rahimahullaah) commented on the above statement saying:

He (i.e. the one who sits with an innovator) is deprived of wisdom, and wisdom is understanding of the Religion of Allaah.  The one who sits with ahlul bidah is deprived of understanding of the Religion as punishment for him.

[Source:Ittihaaful Qaaree Bitta'liqaat Alaa Sharh As-Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) by Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) (page: 318, Vol: 2)]

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: 'Do not sit with a person of innovation, for I fear that curses will descend upon you'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above statement: 'Do not sit with a person of innovation, for I fear that curses will descend upon you';---because punishment, anger and deviation descend upon a person of innovation, so it is feared that you will be afflicted with some of what afflicts him, and for that reason Allaah (Jalla-Wa-Alaa) stated:

'And when you (Muhammad) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qurżaan) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic.  And if shaitaan causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers)'6:68

And Allaah (Ta-aalaa) said to the believers:

'And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'aan) that when you hear the Verses of Allaah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allaah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell.'4:140

In this is a warning against sitting with the people of misguidance and desires, and against sitting, accompanying and listening to their speech or reading their books.  So it is upon you to be distant from these affairs.  Wal-laahul Musta-aan, at present the one who acts upon this (i.e. the one who keeps away from the people of misguidance and desires) is said to be a secluded person and a boycotter, and that he is one who harbors doubt against the people.

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: 'Whoever sits in a road with a person of innovation, take a different road'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above statement saying: Be it even in a road; if you see him in a road do not go with him.  Do not accompany them in a road nor on a journey, for they will have an effect on you.  Then where does this leave those who go with the innovators and accompany them in the pretext of dawah?

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:

''whoever honors an innovator has assisted in the demolition of Islaam.'  Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan said, because innovation is contrary to Islaam.  If you give support to an innovator, then indeed you have assisted in the demolition of Islaam, because Islaam is the Sunnah and the Sunnah is Islaam.  So it is obligatory upon the person that he does not honor the people of innovation, and that he neither praises nor commends them; as we hear at present the praises for the kuffaar, the Jews and the Christians.... [Source:Ittihaaful Qaaree Bitta'liqaat Alaa Sharh As-Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree, page:323, Vol:2]        

Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) said in a letter of his to Muta-wakkil (rahimahullaah):

Among other things, indeed it is not permissible to seek the aid and assistance of the people of innovations and desires in anything regarding the affairs of the Muslims because that is of greater harm upon the religion, this being in accordance with the opinion of the Ameerul Mumineen (May Allaah lengthen his reign) with regards to holding on firmly to the Sunnah and to be in opposition to the people of innovation.
[Source: 'Imtihaan As-Sunnee Min Bid'ee (page: 76)]

The end.....

We ask Allaah to grant us Tawfeeq to act upon all aspects of the Religion with Ikhlaas and Firmness.

Setting Up Trials In Islaam


Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) said:

To set up trials in Islaam is an innovation.  As for today, people should be tested about the Sunnah, because of his saying, 'This is the knowledge of the Religion, so look from whom you take your Religion' and, 'Do not accept hadeeth except from those whose witness you would accept.'  So look and see if he is a person of the Sunnah with comprehension and is truthful then write from him and if not then leave him.[1]

Concerning Imaam Barbahaaree's statement: 'To set up trials in Islaam is an innovation.  As for today, people should be tested about the Sunnah'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan comments on the above statement saying:

The initial affair with regards to the Muslim is that he is (held) to be upon goodness and to have a good suspicion of him, as long as he does not manifest that which is in opposition to that. This is the principle, so the author [i.e. Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah)] says: As long as (nothing else) other than good is manifested from the Muslim, then we are to approve of this goodness from him and this is even the case with the munaafiq.  

The Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) accepted that which was apparent from the hypocrites and he entrusted to Allaah (subhaanahu Wata-aalaa) that which was hidden about them.  So as long as nothing else is manifested from him, then you are to have a good suspicion of him.  However, if hatred for the Sunnah and the People of Sunnah is manifested from him; then beware of him.  This is the meaning of Imaam Barbahaaree's statement 'To set up trials in Islaam is an innovation', meaning; any muslim from whom no evil is manifested is not to be tested.

To be continued.....Inshaa-Allah

Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) then stated:

'As for today, people should be tested about the Sunnah'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented on the above statement saying:

In his time (i.e. in Imaam Barbahaaree's time) there came about testing about the Sunnah because of the numerous sects of misguidance that claimed Islaam, so that it is known (with regards) to who is upon the Sunnah and not to be deluded (with regards) to one's claim to Islaam.

Therefore, the one who loves the people of Sunnah, then this is evidence that he is of the people of goodness.  And the one who loves the people of innovation, then this is evidence that he is of the people of evil.[The End]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Reminder To The Tullaabul Ilm And Du'aat Of Salafiyyah


May Allah keep your feet firm upon the haqq O You Tullaabul Ilm and Du'aat of Salafiyyah in the various Maraakiz of Salafiyyah! You must continue to speak the haqq with regards to those who ally with the hizbies and those who think that they can take a middle way between the Salafis and the hizbies.  

Indeed, we are amazed by the short-sighted ones; those who do not approve of advising the people against those stubborn individuals who are proud to declare their allegiance to the people of Tahazzub.  So when the Salafi speaks the haqq about an individual who keeps the company of the people of Tahazzub amongst the affiliates of Jamiat Ahle hadith UK, you find the short-sighted ones putting up a defense for such people.  

These short-sighted ones wish to afflict the brothers with their weaknesses, as a good brother says, 'Such ones do not rock the boat in order to get things straight for the sake of Allah'.  So we ask the brothers to speak the haqq whenever they are required to do so.  It is stated in the hadith Qudsi collected by Imaam Ibn Maajah with a sound chain:

'Let not any one of you belittle himself. They said: O Messenger of Allah, how can any one of us belittle himself? He said: He finds a matter concerning Allah about which he should say something, and he does not say [it], so Allah (mighty and sublime be He) says to him on the Day of Resurrection: What prevented you from saying something about such-and-such and such-and-such? He say: [It was] out of fear of people. Then He says: Rather it is I Whom you should more properly fear.

So, fear not the people and let not the anger or displeasure of anyone on this earth prevent you from speaking the haqq.  If speaking the haqq leaves you with few friends, then so be it.  And busy yourself with those who bring you closer to the correct understanding and those who always have a word of advice for you with regards to holding onto the sunnah with your molar teeth.  

To be continued......Inshaa-Allaah

And concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): 'This is the knowledge of the Religion, so look from whom you take your Religion'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement saying: Learning is to be (acquired) from the Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah and not from the scholars of innovation.

And concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): 'Do not accept hadith except from those whose witness you would accept'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) comments on the above statement saying:  Do not accept from the narrators of hadith, except (from) one whose testimony you would accept with a judge; because numerous are the weak narrators and the lies with respect to the narrations.  This (i.e. not accepting hadeeth, except from the trustworthy narrators) is with regards to the one who has knowledge of the science of hadith.  As for the one who does not have knowledge of the science of hadith, then he is to return to the authentic books of the Sunnah.

And concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): 'So look and see if he is a person of the Sunnah with comprehension and is truthful then write from him and if not then leave him'  

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan comments on the above statement saying: This (i.e. above statement of Imaam Barbahaaree) is a clarification of his statement, 'This is the knowledge of the Religion.'  

So look to the one you learn from and narrate from.  If you see him to be a person of the Sunnah and steadfastness, then write down hadith from him and narrate from him.  And if he is the opposite of that, then do not take hadith from him; because there is one who narrates about the Messenger of Allah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) whilst being a liar, and how numerous are the fabricators!  

This (i.e. narrating from the people of Sunnah and steadfastness and not narrating from others) is with regards to narrating hadith with its chain, but as for with regards to transmitting hadith, then return to the authentic books of the Sunnah.[The End]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOW NUMEROUS ARE THE FABRICATORS!

A Reminder To The Salafi Tullaabul Ilm And The Dużaat In The Various Maraakiz Of Salafiyyah


O You Salafi Tullaabul Ilm and Du'aat, may Allah keep your feet firm in the presence of the numerous fabricated methodologies and their upholders.  Follow the path of your salafus saaleh and the path of the trustworthy scholars of today, who are active in teaching the people the correct aqeedah and manhaj whilst unveiling the fabrications of the people of misguidance and bidah.

Follow the footsteps of the trustworthy scholars of today, and do not be lax in transmitting the refutations of the scholars against the fabrications of the contemporary fabricators from amongst the qutbees, soroorees, ikhwaanees, soofees and other deviants.  

Indeed, you are well aware of the steadfastness and service of Sheikh Rabee and others (may Allah preserve them) in this field.  So follow their footsteps for the sake of Allah and transmit that which will safeguard ahlus sunnah from the fabrications of the people of hizbiyyah and their evil plans to destroy the correct walaa wal baraa.  

Follow the footsteps of the trustworthy scholars like sheikh Rabee and others in clarifying the evil intentions of the people of Tamyee, and the deceit and ignorance of those who wish to take a middle path between the Salafis and the hizbies.  

O Salafi Tullaabul Ilm and Du'aat! Follow the footsteps of the trustworthy scholars.  Speak the haqq on the Manaabir (Pulpits)and when transmitting the works of the scholars in the masaajid of Salafiyyah. Fear not the blame of the blamers.  

May Allah keep your feet firm upon the haqq and brighten your faces in this life and the next.

The Wise Man Does Not Argue Or Seek To Overcome With Stratagem


Al-Hasan (al-Basree) said, 'The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem rather he propagates his wisdom.  If it is accepted he praises Allah and if it is rejected he praises Allah'[1]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) commented on the above statement saying: Concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree that Hasan al-Basree said: 'The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem....'  

Al-Hasan Al-Basree: He is Al-Hasan Ibnu Abil Hasan Al-Basree the well known Imaam from amongst the Taażbiżeen. He said,

'The wise man', that is the one who possesses wisdom, and wisdom is to place something in its (proper) place.  Likewise, the wise one means the one with understanding.   Therefore, two meanings are intended by Al-Hakeem (the wise one).  The first intended meaning is one who places the affairs in their (proper) place.  And it is also intended to mean the one who has understanding, because wisdom is understanding and knowledge of what is intended by Allah and His Messenger (i.e. the understanding of the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger).

He (i.e. the wise one) 'does not argue'.  He does not debate (with) a fruitless debate that is devoid of benefit.  

'And he (i.e. the wise one) does not seek to overcome with stratagem'.  He does not seek to overcome the people of falsehood with stratagem and to make them submit.  'His wisdom', that is he propagates his knowledge and if accepted he praises Allah.  This is what is sought after.  And if it (i.e. his knowledge/wisdom) is not accepted, he is absolved of his responsibility and the proof is conveyed.  

And concerning the statement, 'He (i.e. the wise one) praises Allah'; because he established and conveyed the proof, and fulfilled that which is required of him, and the guiding of the hearts is in the hands of Allah (subhaanahu-wata-aalaa).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Reminder To The Salafi Tullaabul Ilm And Dużaat In The Various Maraakiz Of Salafiyyah


So O you Salafi Tullaabul Ilm and Du'aat!  Convey that which the scholars have established of proofs in all aspects of this blessed Manhajus Salafi.  Do this with dedication and reliance upon Allah.  You cannot guide the hearts of the people of Tahazzub and Bidah, rather convey the proofs and be steadfast.  We ask Allah to keep our feet and yours firm upon this blessed Manhajus Salafi.  We ask Him (subhaanah) to protect us and our families from Shirk, Bidah, Tahazzub and Tamyee.

[From The Fundamental Principles Of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa'ah Is That No One Is To Be Loved And Helped For Being Disobedient To Allah, Rather All Of That Is To Be Hated For The Sake Of Allah]


Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) stated: 'From the Sunnah is that you do not help anyone in disobedience to Allah, whether they be parents or any of the creation.  There is no obedience to a human in disobedience to Allah and no one is to be loved for that (i.e. disobedience to Allah).  Rather all of that is to be hated for (the sake of Allah), the Blessed and Most High.'[1]

Concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree: 'From the Sunnah is that you do not help anyone in disobedience to Allah.'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented saying:

This is a fundamental principle from the fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa'ah deduced from the statement of the [Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] that, 'there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator.'

And he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: 'Obedience is only in that which is good'

So whoever commands disobedience to Allah is not to be obeyed.  He/she is not to be obeyed in disobedience, be it your father, or your mother, or from the closest of the people to you, or a Ruler or a King.  He/she is not to be followed in disobedience.  Allah (Ta-aalaa) mentioned about the Jews and Christians when they followed (their Rabis and Monks) in disobedience:

'They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allaah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allaah)'[9:31]
  
And concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree: 'Whether they be parents or any of the creation'  Allah (Ta-aalaa) said about the parents:

'And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and his weaning is in two years give thanks to Me and to your parents, unto Me is the final destination.  But if they (both) strive with you to make you join in worship with Me others that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not, but behave with them in the world kindly, and follow the path of him who turns to Me in repentance'[31:14-15]

Allah (Ta-aalaa) said:

'And We have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents, but if they strive to make you join with Me (in worship) anything (as a partner) of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do.' [29:8]  

There is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator no matter who that may be, even if he/she is the closest of the people to you such as the two parents, then what about other than them.  

To be continued....Inshaa-Allaah

A Reminder To The People Of Tahazzub


So after you have understood this O Sunni Athari, then ask Allah for Tawfeeq to act upon it with Ikhlaas and firmness.  We ask Allah to protect us from following desires, for there are many who understand this principle yet they still defend and cling to those personalities, figure heads and Masaajid upon clear error and Tahazzub.

And as for those amongst the diseased partisans who mock and question the Salafis when they show their displeasure towards those who persist upon error, then indeed their affair is extremely dangerous.  How can they mock at a people who follow the Ulama of hadeeth and Sunnah and strive to apply their verdicts regarding this very important principle of our Religion brought to our attention by Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah)

You (diseased partisans) mock at the Salafis of Maktabah Salafiyyah and their brothers in the various maraakiz because they have abandoned those who have deviated in some affairs of the Religion and have been fabricating lies against the likes of Sheikh Rabee and others.  Indeed, your mockery of the Salafis is nothing else but clear error and misguidance.

O diseased partisans! Do you want us to cling to those individuals who have slandered the Ulama just as you have persisted in defending the personalities upon error at Markaz Jamiat Ahle Hadith Uk and elsewhere?  

Do you think that by labeling the salafis as those who abandon people at random the people will flee from the haqq?  Indeed, Allah is the One Who guides to correctness and we ask Him for Tawfeeq, so that we are from those who follow the Ulama whenever they clarify and establish the Haqq.

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented saying:

Disobedience is not to be loved nor is the one who commands disobedience to be loved, rather that is to be hated.  Disobedience is to be hated and the people of disobedience are to be hated.  Disobedience is to be hated and its people are to be hated, and the one who commands it is to be (hated), due to the saying of [the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)]:

'Whoever among you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; if he cannot, then with his tongue (by speaking out); and if he cannot, then with his heart (by hating it and feeling it is wrong), and that is the weakest of faith.'    

Therefore, disobedience is to be hated and its people are to be hated.  This is from Eemaan.

A Reminder To The Diseased Partisans


O Diseased Partisans! Is alliance with the people of Bidah praise worthy?  Why is that you defend your figure heads at Jamiat Ahle Hadith UK despite the fact that they openly proclaim loud praises for the people of Bidah.  Why do defend the likes of Shu'aib Hassan who gives taskiyah to the false interpreters and distorters of the Sunnah such as the likes of hamza yusuf.  Is this action of Shu'aib Hassan praiseworthy or blame worthy?  Have you freed yourselves from this action of his or are you still defending him upon falsehood.

Indeed, you have increased in your hatred for the Salafis and have increased in your love for those who openly give taskiyah to the people of bidah and misguidance.   You mock at the Salafis of Salafi publications and label them with haddaadiyyah only because they openly hold onto the verdicts of the Ulama and declare their hatred for Hizbiyyah and its people.  

Indeed, you have clearly shown by way of speech and actions that you love and defend those who call to hizbiyyah, and if this is not disobedience, then what is it O diseased Partisans?   And you hate those who hate hizbiyyah and its people, and if this is not disobedience, then what is it?  We ask Allah for protection against hearts that have fallen in love with hizbiyyah and its people.    

'O turner of the hearts! Keep our hearts firm upon your Religion'

O Salafi Tullaabul Ilm And Du'aat! Follow The Footsteps Of The Ulama Of Salafiyyah, For They Are The Strangers




Yunus Ibn Ubaid (rahimahullaah) said: 'How remarkable today are those who call to the Sunnah.  Even more remarkable are those who respond and accept the Sunnah'[1]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented saying:

The Sunnah has become strange and those who call to it have become strange, and even stranger are those who act upon it.  No doubt there will be times when there will be strangeness with respect to the Sunnah and its people.  As time elapses the Sunnah will become strange and Ahlus Sunnah are the strangers; for that reason he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

'Islaam began as a strange thing and it will return being strange.  So Toobaa is for the strangers.  They said: who are the strangers O Messenger of Allah?  He said: those who will rectify when the people become corrupt.'  And in another narration, [he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] said: 'They rectify that which the people have corrupted'

These are the strangers during the end of time.  They hold onto the Sunnah when the people become corrupt.  They exercise patience upon that which touches them of harm.  They exercise patience upon (this) strangeness amongst the people; because those who oppose them are numerous, for they are in strangeness amongst the people.[2]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Reminder To The Salafi Tullaabul Ilm And Du'aat At Salafi Publications And Their Brothers In The Various Maraakiz Of Salafiyyah


Indeed, you know that the Ulama of Sunnah are the strangest of the people in our time, due to that which they command of adherence to the authentic Sunnah and abandonment of all that is in opposition to it.  They are not vilified and slandered by the people of shirk, bidah, hizbiyyah and Tamyi except for this reason.

However, this neither makes them compromise the truth nor seek to please the people of misguidance.  They do not compromise with the Qutubees, the Ikhwaanees, the tableeghees and others from amongst ahlul bidah.  They call to unity upon the sound creed and methodology of the Salafus Saaleh and not upon political aspirations.

O diseased partisan! Read the books of Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan, Sheikh Rabee and others and you will find the clarity they are upon with regards to unity upon the haqq.  It is also required of those who are extremely confused about this issue of unity and co-operation to read the books of these ulama, for it will clarify for them that one cannot take a middle path of compromise between the Salafis and the people of Tahazzub.

Read the books of these ulama and you will realize the errors of Jamiat Ahle Hadith Uk and their figure heads like Shu'aib Hassan.  Indeed, the Salafis are forced to accept the likes of Shu'aib Hassan as an Aalim in the West and are attacked for rejecting that.  However, Shu'aib Hassan is not like our ulama; because our ulama do not compromise this blessed Manhajus Salafi.  They neither unite with innovators for political reasons nor do they give taskiyaat to the false interpreters and distorters of the Sunnah like hamza yusuf.

Therefore, O Salafi Tullaabul Ilm and Du'aat! Ask Allah for firmness upon the path of the ulama of ahlus sunnah.  It is upon you to transmit the works of the ulama in all aspects of this blessed manhajus salafi.  Indeed, you are not to fear the blame of the blamers from amongst the people of shirk, bidah, hizbiyyah and tamyi.

'O Turner of the hearts keep our hearts firm upon your religion'

Beware! Beware Of The People Of Your Time




Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) said:

'Beware! Beware of the people of your time!  Look to whom you sit with, hear from and accompany, for it is as if the creation have apostatised except those whom Allaah has protected!'

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him and grant him good health) commented saying:

For indeed during the time of the author [Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah)], the Fitnah was great indeed, so he (rahimahullaah) issues warning to the people of every era in which appears evil, desires and bidah.   So he (rahimahullaah) warns against all of this [i.e. the evil (affairs), desires and bidah).

And this (warning) is not specific to his era; rather (this warning) becomes more intense upon the Muslim in every era in which appears evil (affairs), desires and false calls.  So he (the Muslim) should beware.

And concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah): ' for it is as if the creation have apostatised except those whom Allaah has protected!'

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him and grant him good health) commented saying:

This was during his time and it has also reoccurred.  So it may be more severe in our time and after it, and Allaah knows best; because as time elapses there will be more Fitan and evil (affairs).  The Sunnah will become strange and those who traverse upon it will be few.  Therefore, the danger will be more severe. [1]

    Sheikh Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

So being mindful of Ahlul Bidah, to have hatred for them, to boycott and cut them off is the correct path of protection of Ahlus Sunnah against falling to their fitnah.  And to be lackadaisical about them, to harbour a good suspicion of them and inclining towards them is the beginning of (traversing) the path of misguidance and deviation. [Allaah (subhaanah)] said:

'And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the fire should touch you.' [11:113]

And who is more oppressive/unjust than Ahlul Bidah?  Ahlul Bidah are more evil than the sinners and the people of disobedience; and for that reason the Faqeeh of Basra and the most intelligent of them Salaam Bin Abee Mutee (rahimahullaah) said:

'It is more beloved to me that I meet Allaah with the scroll of Hajjaaj than meet Him with the scroll of Amr Ibn Ubaid'

Amr Ibn Ubaid was a Zaahid and a worshipper Maashaa-Allaah, but he was an innovator and a misguided one, and Hajjaaj was an evil doer, a shedder of blood and a criminal.  He (Salaam Bin Abee Mutee) held that if he were to make a choice between meeting Allaah with the scroll of Hajjaaj and that of Amr Ibn Ubaid, he would choose to meet Allaah with the scroll of Hajjaaj-the blood shedder and oppressive evil doer.  And why is this? [That is] due to his realization of the danger and ugliness of bidah.  

And it is sufficient for us that the Messenger described (bidah) in his khutbah as the worst of all affairs, as reported in the Hadeeth of Jaabir (radiyallaahu-anhu).....[2]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan Stated:

'If You Find Fault With The People Of Goodness, The People Of Knowledge And Ahlus Sunnah, And Commend The People Of Deviated Views And Orientations, Then This Is A Severe Danger Even If You Do Not Sit With Them (i.e. with such people of deviation).'



  

Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) stated:

'If you see a man speaking well of Ibn Abee Du'aad, Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah, Abul Hudhail or Hishaam Al-Footee or any of their adherents, beware of him because he is an innovator.  These people were upon apostasy, so leave this man who spoke well of them and whomever he mentioned of them.'[1]


'If you see a man speaking well of Ibn Abee Du'aad, Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah, Abul Hudhail or Hishaam Al-Footee'

Sheikh Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him and grant him good health) commented saying:

If you see a man commending the people of evil and the scholars of misguidance, such as these off shoots of the Jahmiyyah; then know that he is a sinful one, a corrupter and a misguided one; because he praises them not except that he loves them and approves of their path.  

And if you see a man commending Ahlus Sunnah, such as the likes of Imaam Ahmad and Ibnul Mubaarak, and likewise commending the Scholars of the Taabi'een and those who came after them, then know that he is a person of goodness; because he commends not Ahlus Sunnah except that he loves the Sunnah and holds unto it.  

This teaches us a lesson in (view of the fact that) some of the brothers or some of the students of knowledge commend some of the innovators or the people of desires and deviated views, whilst not examining their views and orientations.  They attack and find fault with the people of goodness; because they lend an ear to those who find fault with them and believe them.  This is a severe danger.

If you find fault with the people of goodness, the people of knowledge and Ahlus Sunnah, and commend the people of deviated views and orientations, then this is a severe danger even if you do not sit with them.  So this is of that which we should be mindful of; from that which many people have fallen into at present.[2]

Ibn Abee Du'aad, Bish Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah Ibnul Ash-rasi, Abu Al-Fudhal And Hishaam Al-Footee





'Ibn Abee Du'aad and Bish Al-Mareesee'

Sheikh Fawzaan stated: These two directed Mamoon to punish Imaam Ahmad and other than him from amongst the Imaams, in order that they may say that the Qur'aan is created.

'Thumaamah Ibnul Ash-rasi'

Sheikh Fawzaan stated: This one was from the models of the people of misguidance.

'And Abu Al-Fudhail (known as Al-Allaaf)'

Sheikh Fawzaan stated: He was from the major scholars of the Mutazilah.

'And Hishaam Al-Footee'

Sheikh Fawzaan stated: And Hishaam Al-Footee was from the mubtadi'a (innovators).

A Test For Your Respect For The Aqeedah And Manhaj Of The Salaf



Sheikh Rabee (hafidha-hullaah) stated:

Therefore, The One who reveres the Manhajus Salafi, the Aqeedah Salafiyyah and the people of this Manhaj-those who proceeded and those who succeeded them; then how can he harbour a good suspicion and incline towards Ahlul Bidah?  

If you say: 'The Book of Allaah', then it is binding upon you; if you say: 'The Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah', then it is a proof against you.  If you say: 'The Imaams of Islaam', then their stance is well known, and their writings and authorships are well known with respect to shunning Ahlul Bidah and their hatred for them and warning against them--especially the Imaams of the Sunnah, such as Maalik, Al-Awzaa'ee, Shaafi'ee, the two Sufyaans, Abee Haatim, Abee Zur'ah, the Imaams of Islaam and the Mountains of the Sunnah.  They are an example for the Ummah.  

So whoever does not follow their example and swerves away from their path, then by Allaah he will be a follower of the path of shaytaan.  He will rush into the denominations of shaytaan no matter what he claims for himself.

To be continued.....Inshaa-Allaah
