Abu Abdullaah al-Madanee said: Usaamah al-Umree said
All praise is due to Allaah, and prayers and peace upon His Messenger, to proceed: One of the brothers showed me today, Sunday 25/11/1423H, at 3:45pm, Asr time, what Abul-Hasan al-Misree, then al-Ma'ribee said, in his speech, "Usaamah al-Umree narrated to me that he heard Shaykh Rabee' saying, "Indeed, speaking about the Jamaa'aat has caused me to forget many sciences, until I almost became like a common person", and the burden for this (narration) is upon Usaamah al-Umree and I do not think that he will reject this!!".
And this statement is a pure fabrication or lie, as is his habit of ascribing statements to people who are free from them, and his desire to create corruption between the Salafee students of knowledge and their Shaykhs may Allaah protect them from every evil, and repel the plots of the plotters, and the fabrications of the liars.
So let him fear Allaah, and let him remember the saying of Allaah Azza wa Jall, "And fear a day when you will be returned to Allaah, then every soul will be recompensed for what it earned, and they will not be wronged". And let him remember the saying of the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), "You must adhere to truthfulness, for verily, truthfulness guides to righteousness, and righteousness guides to Paradise, and a man does not cease to be truthful and pursue truthfulness, except that he is written as a truthful person with Allaah. And beware of lying for verily, lying guides to fujoor (sin) and fujoor guides to Hellfire and a man does not cease to lie and pursue lying, except that he is written as a liar with Allaah." Reported by al-Bukhaaree, Muslim, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhee, and he authenticated it and the wording is his.
And prayers and peace be upon Muhammad, his family and his companions.
