Part 1.
Ash-Shaikh al-'Allaamah 'Ubaid al-Jaabiree (hafidhahullaah) censures Shadeed Muhammad:

Shaikh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree was asked regarding the affair of Shadeed Muhammad  on the 29th November 2010 coinciding with 23rd Dhul Hijjah 1431 and he said the following:

"He is misguided and misguides [others], it is a must to be careful from him and I advise those responsible for those Mosques upon the Sunnah in Europe, America and other than them that they do not give him a platform to teach or lecture from. And a detailed refutation of him is in progress."


More to come inshaa'Allaah...

Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee on Shadeed Muhammad

In a sitting, which took place on the 6th of Sha'baan, 1431H, the Imaam of al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel said,


It is obligatory upon this brother to repent to Allaah the Mighty and Majestic and he must be sincere with Allaah in his repentance and in his return to the truth.  And he must rectify his heart and his deeds and whoever he is responsible for.

And he said,


He is not fit for da'wah whilst he is in this condition.  So if he repents and shows remorse and is upright upon the correct path and the thiqaat from the likes of the brother Aboo Muhammad al-Maghribee and the maintainers of Salafi Publications testify to his recanting, his uprightness and his abstaining from love of fame and this this chair, because his love for fame and this chair has caused the mashaayikh to doubt in him.

So if he makes apparent the piety of his tawbah and the thiqaat testify to this, as has preceded, and they see that he is capable of bringing benefit, then only at that point can he be co-operated with in benfitting the people with his knowledge, if he has knowledge.  Along with all of that, it is inevitable that he must be restricted to the understanding of the Salaf with proofs from the Book and the Sunnah.

The original scan of the letter can be seen here:

Please take note that in the statement above, Shaykh Rabee' (hafidhahullaah) acknowledges the trustworthiness of Aboo Muhammad al-Maghribee and the brothers at Salafi Publications.  He also acknowledges Shadeed's love for fame and the kursee (chair).

Shadeed Muhammad is now the Imaam at the
United Muslim Mission - Philadelphia PA

Who is U.M.M.?

The United Muslim Mission in Philadelphia has been called to the Sunnah by the likes of Dawud Adib and others.  Despite that, they hosted the Philadelphian Ash'arees later when the Ash'aree insinuated takfeer upon Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H).  They (i.e. the Ash'arees) also ridiculed Imaam al-Albaanee (d.1420H) there as well.

This Attack on Ibn Taymiyyah was in their Masjid

[url=]The Philadelphian Ash'aree Propounding a Deviant 'Aqeedah at U.M.M.[/url]

All praise is due to Allaah, the Salafee callers such as: Abul-Hasan Maalik, Hasan as-Somali, Aboo Ri'aayah 'Abdur-Razzaaq, Kashiff Khan and others clarified the misguidance of these Ash'arees when they attempted to assault the 'aqeedah of Ahlus-Sunnah. Even some of the Salafees from the U.K. lent support by refuting the Philadelphian Ash'arees on [url=][/url]. We did not however, see any such defense emanating from Shadeed Muhammad during that time of fitnah.

Please take a moment to look at the following description of their history taken from their site:

So they are currently owned and operated by the "International Muslim Brotherhood"?!?!

Shadeed Muhammad is Now the Imaam of This Masjid:

Since he has become the Imaam, we have not seen Shadeed defend the 'aqeedah of Ahlus-Sunnah.  We have not seen him defend the Salafee manhaj from the numerous attacks against it that have taken place at this masjid.  Rather, we ask: Can one recall a time when Shadeed defended Ahlus-Sunnah against the attacks of the people of innovation?  Or have his lectures been consistently focused on ridiculing the Salafee communities and callers in the U.S?  Did he ever "blow the whistle" until he felt the need to defend himself - whilst leaving alone all of the attacks against Ahlus-Sunnah which took place at the very masjid he is now the Imaam of?  So what is Shadeed teaching at U.M.M.?  Is he clarifying the sound 'aqeedah?  Is he clarifying the manhaj and usool of the Salafee da'wah?  Here is a look at a recent flier for one of his lectures at U.M.M.:

Surely the decorum of the Muslim woman is topic that deserves attention in the United States where immodesty is widespread.  However, this does not take precedence of teaching the usool of 'aqeedah and manhaj and clarifying the attacks against the Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah past and present.  

Lastly, we remind Shadeed of his own words, in a lecture that was delivered on January 3rd 2010CE:

"As we know, dealing with the general body of the Muslims, its almost know, with them on for...for a general benefit, unless you gotta, you know, condone some of their falsehood."

[url=]Click here to listen[/url]

So this admission begs the question: Which of U.M.M.'s falsehoods did Shadeed condone to land an Imaam job there?  Was it their attacks against the 'aqeedah of Ibn Taymiyyah and al-Albaanee? Was it their leniency in matters of intermingling of the sexes and music?  Inshaa' Allaah, once the reality of this particular situation is presented to Shaykh Saalih al-Luhaydaan, we can then have a detailed answer specific to working at the likes of this masjid.

Preserving the Aqeedah
Is From The Manhaj of The Salaf,
A Word of Clarity Regarding Shadeed Muhammad
& his Misguidance

Khutbah by Abu Khadeejah Abdul Waahid regarding the preservation of the correct aqeedah and the speech of Shaykh of Ubayd al-Jaabiree regarding Shadeed Muhammad.

  About five days ago or less, I was apprised of an email that our brother Mu'aadh (Maaz)Qureishi at Sunnah Publishings received from a sister, Umm Amatullah wherein she asked the question was I not at one time the imaam of the UMM masjid here in Philadelphia where Shadeed Muhammad is the imaam presently.

For the sake of clarification, I have never been the imaam of that masjid, however, I was the imaam of Masjid As-Sunnah An-Nabawiyyah commonly known as Germantown Masjid, which is one of the few Salafee masaajid in Philadelphia, PA.

  Shaykh Rabee' Compares Shadeed Muhammad to Abul Hasan Al-Maribee
The Shaykh Allaamah Rabee' Ibn Haadi compares some statements of Shadeed Muhammad to Abul Hasan Al-Maribee

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatahu

The noble brother Abdul-ilah from the UK went to Shaykh Rabee and read to him some of the statements of Shadeed Muhammad, which will soon be made available. Shaykh Usaamah al-'Utaybee was also present. When the Shaykh heard these points he compared what he heard to the positions of Al-Maribee:

"By Allaah, Al-Maribee attempted to ruin the clear call of Salafiyyah spread by Shaykh Muqbil, the Mujaddid of Yemen, and he failed. Alhamdu lillah."

And Shadeed Muhammad is trying to corrupt and water down the Salafee Da'wah taught and spread by the likes of Abu Awais and others in the US. The deceit and treachery of this man will be exposed for the world to see. Shadeed Muhammad has not dedicated a single lecture or article to refute any of the heads of innovation but he writes 100's of pages against Salafis. Why?

This is an example where Shadeed claims that we should have non-Salafis on the Admin of Salafi Masjids if they have secular degrees! In his ignorance he compares the house of Allah to a business. Why does he raise this issue when speaking to women? Harsh with the Salafis and bootlicking the Hizbees.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Sahaabah Differed in 'Aqeedah:

Said Shadeed Muhammad,

"Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah - rahimahullaahu ta'aalaa - he mentions in his Majmooul-Fataawaa volume 23, page 172, (he then quotes the statement in Arabic then goes on to translate), He said that you found that the Sahaabah, they differed in issues.  The Sahaabah they differed in issues, they might have even differed in issues of aqeedah.  He said but along with this differing you still found amongst them love and harmony, along with their differing.  There was still love, there was still ulfah.  There was still love and harmony between them.  And he mentioned an example...(quotes the Arabic).  He said 'Aa`ishah differed with Ibn 'Abbaas and everyone that agreed with Ibn 'Abbaas in the issue, "Did the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) see Allaah when me made the Israa` wal-Mi'raaj."  Ibn Abbaas said that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saw Allaah.  'Aa`ishah said that the one who said that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saw Allaah has indeed lied lied on Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa.  He said, "But along with that, they never made tabdee' - they never said that they were innovators, those who agreed with 'Aa`ishah.  And those who agreed with 'Aa`ishah never made innovators out of those who agreed with Ibn 'Abbaas.  This is one of the many examples that we find from amongst the Sahaabah.  And they differed in a major issue.  But along with that you still never found amongst them what you find amongst us in affairs that are less than 'aqeedah.  Issues of fiqh."

Click here for the audio


[1]: Shadeed's claim here is nothing new.  Rather, only a few years ago, the Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah far and wide refuted an innovator by the name of Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee and this claim was his!  Abul-Hasan said,

"Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned that the Sahaabah differed in issues of 'aqeedah.  They differed in the issue: Did the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) see his Lord on the night of al-Mi'raaj or not???"  Refer to the cassette tape Jalsah fee Jeddah, dated: 28/6/1423H

By Allaah, it is as if Shadeed parroted this speech directly from al-Ma`ribee!

[2]: Shadeed is very ambiguous here in what is a direct translation of Ibn Taymiyyah's speech and what is Shadeed's own interjection.  

Here is the speech he is quoting from Ibn Taymiyyah:

Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah - rahimahullaah - said - as occurs in Majmoo'ul-Fataawaa (24/172-173),

"When the Scholars from the Sahaabah and the taabi'een and those who came after them disputed in an affair, they would follow the command of Allaahu ta'aalaa in His statement,

 An-Nisa (4):59

O you who believe! Obey Allh and obey the Messenger (Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allh and His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) , if you believe in Allh and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.

And they used to debate an issue with a debate of mutual consultation and mutual advice.  And perhaps their statement would differ in an issue of knowledge and deed, but the affection, virtuousness and religious brotherhood would remain."

And here - dear reader - is where Shadeed stops.  However, the speech of Shaykhul-Islaam continues.  Here is what Ibn Taymiyyah said next,

"Yes, whosoever opposes the Clear Book and the detailed Sunnah, or whatever the Salaf of the Ummah have a consensus upon - a disagreement for which there is no excuse - then this one must be dealt with as the people of innovation are dealt."

So Shadeed left out the last sentence because doesn't agree with his recurring theme of excusing and accomodating innovation and its people.

[3]: In fact, Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah actually rebutted the same statement Shadeed is ascribing to him here, Ibn Taymiyyah said,

"However, this dispute only occurred in the detailed affairs from it.  As for that which was clear, then they did not differ in it.  And the Sahaabah themselves differed in some of that, but they not differ in the 'aqaa`id (beliefs), nor in the path to Allaah, which the man from the close allies of Allaah, the righteous ones must traverse." Majmoo'ul-Fataawaa 10/274)

So here Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah has said the exact opposite of what Shadeed infers upon his words above.  If it is still not clear to you - yaa Shadeed - then read the next statement where Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah said,

"And the intended purpose is that the Sahaabah - may Allaah be pleased with them - did not fight ever, over a principle (qaa'idah) from the principles of Islaam originally.  And they did not differ in anything from the qawaa'id of Islaam, not about the Attributes, not about the Qadr, not about the issues of al-Asmaa` and al-Ahkaam (rulings), nor in the issues of the Imaamah."  Refer to Minhaajus-Sunnah (6/336) of Ibn Taymiyyah.

[4]: What is intended by those who claim the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah - whether they be Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee or Shadeed Muhammad - is to put away the differences between Ahlus-Sunnah and Ahlul-Bid'ah.  This is what Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin al-'Abbaad alluded to when he was asked in his lesson, which took place on Saturday, 20/8/1423H, "Is it permissible to say that the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah?"  So the Noble Shaykh replied,

"There is differing found amongst the Sahaabah in the furoo' (subsidiary affairs).  And there is absolutely no differing found in the usool (foundations).  And if there was, then what would the difference be between Ahlus-Sunnah and the innovators then?"

This - dear reader - is the goal.  To remove the differences between Ahlus-Sunnah and the innovators.  Take heed - yaa Shadeed - repent now!

[5]: Shadeed claims the issue of whether the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saw Allaah during the night of al-Mi'raaj is an issue of the Sahaabah differing in 'aqeedah.  A quick explanation of this is as follows:

Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim - rahimahullaah - said,

"Indeed, 'Uthmaan Ibn Sa'eed ad-Daarimee mentioned in his book, ar-Radd a consensus of the Sahaabah that he (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) did not see his Lord on the night of al-Mi'raaj.  And some of them exclude Ibn 'Abbaas from that.  And our Shaykh (i.e. Ibn Taymiyyah) says: That is not a disagreement in truth, since Ibn 'Abbaas did not say he saw Allaah with the eyes in his head."  Refer to Ijtimaa'ul-Juyooshil-Islaamiyyah (p. 48) of Ibnul-Qayyim.

Notice that Ibnul-Qayyim did not understand the speech of Ibn Taymiyyah as Shadeed understands it - or feigns understanding of it.  

Shadeed claims Ibn Taymiyyah said the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah, citing the issue of the Ru`yah of the Prophet as an example.  On the other hand, the foremost student of Ibn Taymiyyah - Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah - explains that Ibn Taymiyyah did not hold this to be a disagreement between the Sahaabah.  What audacity Shadeed has shown towards the Sahaabah and the Scholars of Islaam!

After a detailed discussion of this topic, Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee - hafidhahullaah - summed up the issue as follows,

"Therefore, there was no disagreement between the Sahaabah about it.  So the people of desires who spread the disagreements in the usool and the 'aqaa`id say, "The Sahaabah differed in the 'aqaa`id."  This is a lie, they did not differ.  'Aa`ishah denied the ru`yah with the eyes and Ibn 'Abbaas did not affirm the ru`yah with the eyes; he affirmed the ru`yah with the heart.  Where is the disagreement?  There isn't one."  Refer to Sharh Usoolus-Sunnah (p. 30) of Rabee' al-Madkhalee.

We leave Shadeed and the readers with some of the statements of the Scholars on those who claim that the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah:

Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim (d.751H) said,

"Ineed, the Sahaabah differed in many of the issues of ahkaam (rulings) and they were the leaders of the Believers and the most complete of the Ummah in eemaan.  However, with the praise of Allaah, they did not differ in a single issue from the issues of al-Asmaa` was-Sifaat and the Actions (of Allaah).  Rather, all of them affirmed what the Book and the Sunnah spoke of.  It was one word, from the first of them to the last of them."  Refer to I'laamul-Muwaqqi'een 19/49) of Ibnul-Qayyim.

Imaam ash-Shaatibee said,

"And the khilaaf (disagreement) from the time of the Sahaabah up until now occurred in issues of ijtihaad (independent reasoning)."  Refer to al-I'tisaam (2/191) of ash-Shaatibee.

Shaykh Hammaad al-Ansaaree - rahimahullaah - said,

"The Sahaabah did not ever differ in 'aqeedah.  The khilaaf only occurred after them." Refer to al-Majmoo' fee Tarjumatil-'Allaamah al-Muhaddith Hammaad al-Ansaaree (2/492), issue no 124.

Shaykh Muhammad Amaan al-Jaamee - rahimahullaah - said,

"As for the Muslims, then they were united and in agreement, not split concerning the usool of the Religion.  Indeed, the time of the Sahaabah passed whilst they were upon that.  They did not know any disagreement in 'aqeedah and the usool of the Religion at all.  Rather, they were one Ummah."  Refer to al-'Aqeedatul-Islaamiyyah wa Taareekhuhaa of Muhammad Amaan.

Shaykh Ahmad Ibn Yahyaa an-Najmee (d.1429H) - rahimahullaah - said,

"Whoever says that the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah, then let him support his statement with proofs.  And if he cannot do so, then he is a liar, a slanderer."

He further stated,

"Indeed, it is oligatory that the one who says the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah be silenced.  And he must be prevented from speaking about  'aqeedah, because he is ignorant about it."

The Shaykh further statement about such a person,

"And the intended purpose of this slanderer is to accomodate the disagreements of hizbiyyah.  And he must affirm for himself that he is a  hizbee."  Refer to al-Fataawaa al-Jaliyyah (question no. 63).

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan was asked: Is it correct for us to say that the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah?

He replied,

"Who said this?  A disagreement in 'aqeedah has never been mentioned for the Sahaabah - may Allaah forbid it!  The one who claims that they differed in something from 'aqeedah is a liar."

Shaykh Saalih al-Luhaydaan was asked about those who say that the Sahaabah differed in 'aqeedah, so he replied,

"Astaghfirullaah!  No one says this, except a misguided innovator.  He says that the Sahaabah differed whilst the Sahaabah were the people of 'aqeedah.  If there was any disagreement between them, then it was in some of the affirs of ijtihaad related to deeds.  As for the affairs of 'aqeedah, that Allaah is One and He Hears and Sees, and that He does whatever He wills, that He is the Creator of everything and aware of everything, then they never differed.  And no one stirs up this affair, except for a caller to fitnah. He is either trying to pull wool over the eyes of the people by claiming to be from the people of goodness and uprightness. Or he may have known some good and started to speak with the good he knows to make the people weak and lead them to the falsehood that he follows and leans toward. Also he is eager to spread (what he has learned) if he is from those who are decieved by what he thinks he knows! Therefore it is upon him to seek Allah's forgiveness and repent to Him and to return to the people of knowledge and ask them. And if he is from those who like to conceal his agendas and cover his true objectives he should be exposed so the people can beware of his evil."  Refer to the taped lecture, Sifaatul-Firqatin-Naajiyah wat-Taa`ifatil-Mansoorah, dated 6/2/1431H.

Al-humdullah this was the text of a email that I recieved from one of our beloved brothers from South Philadelphia,well known to us by the name of Abu Shu'ayb. With his permission we decided to post the reality of the United Muslim Masjid { UMM } and its new imam Shadeed Muhammad. To Proceed:-

In the name of Allah, all praises is for Allah and may His peace and blessing be upon his final messenger Muhammad and his family and companions.

As an introduction, I would briefly like to introduce my self. My name is Abu Shuayb Shadeed ibn Gerald Simmons. I am a native of South Philadelphia and well-known in the Salafee community of the city. Recently, the individual known as Shadeed Muhammad has taken the position of Imam in the masjid known as United Muslim Masjid, a clearly deviant masjid that is associated with the likes of Hamzah Yusuf, Siraj Wahhaaj, Muhammad Said Adley and others from the callers to Hizbiyyah.

            Last year, we were witnesses to the Ashari assault against Salafiyyah and the well-known Salafee callers being waged from this masjids minbar and musallah. From those who was at the forefront of this assault and carrier of the Asharee creed is the individual known as Khalil Abdullah who claimed that the companions made taweel in the Names and Attributes of Allah. Since many questions have come up concerning Shadeed Muhammad, I found it obligatory to clarify the reality of the matter from that we have witnessed from his since he has become the Imaam of this masjid.

First, on the 10th of December 2010, we witnessed Shadeeds cooperating with the likes of this Asharee, Khalil Abdullah by rotating the Friday khutbah with him (United Muslim Masjid has two buildings one on 15th Street and the other on Point Breeze Ave. in the South Philadelphia section). So while this Asharee addressed the people in the 15th Street masjid, Shadeed went to the other masjid to give the khutbah.

Second, we are witnesses to this masjid propagating a program entitled Reviving the Islamic Spirit: Rules for the Road of Life: Reviving the 10 Commandments in the Modern World. From the speakers mentioned on the flyer, which was hanging in the masjid: Ali al-Jifri (who Sheikh Fawzaan declared to be a innovator), Hamzah Yusuf (a well-known Sufi), Zaid Shakir (Sufi), Amr Khalid (Sheikh Suhaimee called him a Dajjaal) and others from the heads of misguidance (See the following link: Though we find Shadeed writing lengthy articles against the Salafis, we have not heard one word from him here in South Philadelphia speaking against the likes of this flyer in the masjid nor what those individuals are upon. We also have not heard him refute the likes of Khalil Abdullah who he is presently cooperating with. We hope to make the likes of these issues known to the masses to answer the many questions we continue to hear regarding his affair, may Allah guide us and him to a Way that is Straight. Ameen

Refutation of Shadeed Muhammad's Belittlement of the Statements of the Scholars, and Inventing False Principles which Encourage the Common Folk to Challenge the Scholars or Doubt their Rulings

Prepared by Anwar Wright


So the following is a response a corrupt principle being laid down by Shadeed Muhammad-may Allaah guide him-in his recent article posted under the title "Blowing the Whistle on the Hidden Hizbiyyah Affecting Muslim Communities in America," and his belittlement of the statements of the Scholars, and also inventing false principles which encourage the common folk to challenge the scholars or doubt their rulings.  We hope to respond to his claim that the people blindly follow the rulings of the scholars due to a fear factor. In other words, if the Scholars make a ruling on an individual, the people will not question the Scholars ruling due to fear that it will be said of him that "he has gone against the Scholars." Therefore, we will, inshaa` Allaah, respond to his confusing the affair of taqleed and the acceptance of the narration of the trustworthy.

To open this short rebuttal of Shadeed, I would like to mention the statement of Shaykh Ahmad Baazmool-may Allaah preserve him-in his lecture "Principles that are Obligatory for the Salafee to Know":

"So the person who has been warned against is to be stayed away from especially from the students of knowledge whose feet have not been grounded in knowledge. Why? This is because in this stage, the person being warned against is between one of two things:

The First: that he (i.e. the one being warned against) returns to the truth, and if he does, may Allaah reward him. And the second: that he persists upon his falsehood and does not return. Also during this stage he sends into the hearts and minds of the youth unclear proofs and principles, and establishes for them fundamentals that make them think that he isn't an innovator. And they dont  see him as having left the manhaj. Due to this, if the Scholars eventually declare him an innovator after that, they (i.e. the youth) will not be pleased because he has already planted in their hearts that that which is being said of him is untrue." End of the statement of Shaykh Ahmad Baazmool.

Meaning: That the person calling to his misguidance, due to his diseased heart, who has no intention of returning to the truth, tries to inculcate into the hearts of the listeners and especially the youth that the things being said about him are untrue, and to support his claim of innocence he will utilize false principles and vague statements of the Scholars that do not apply to his situation to pre-empt any refutation  that is about to descend upon him from the Scholars and the well-grounded students of knowledge. In essence he is presenting to the listener a choice to choose between the Scholars (and the well-grounded students of knowledge) and himself, hoping that the general folk who do not know the details of the Salafee manhaj will fall for his deception. Think for a moment, O reader! Why has Shadeed put so much effort in pre-emptying any possible rebuttal? Articles and lectures and paltalk sessions, mail-shots all to defend himself before any formal refutation was made upon him? Why? Because he wanted to plant into hearts of the unsuspecting Salafis that he is innocent, a victim, and upon the truth.

Therefore, dear reader, that which Shaykh Baazmool has mentioned is exactly what Shadeed Muhammad has been doing and continues to do through his lecture 'The Paradigm Shift' and his most recent article that we are now discussing. He seeks to corrupt the hearts of the common folk and establish for them false principles so when and if the Scholars speak against him, they will already think that which is being said of him is untrue. Furthermore, we know that the Imaam of Jarh wat-Ta'deel, the one who is well aware of the traps and snares of the hizbees,  ash-Shaykh al-'Allaamah Rabee Ibn Haadee has said that he is not fit for giving dawah while he is in this state. Also ash-Shaykh al-'Allaamah 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree has declared Shadeed to be Daallun Mudill (misguided, misguiding others) and has stated to beware of him and not to give him a platform to speak anywhere in the west! Both of these Scholars know the errors of Shadeed, and it is not as Shadeed and others claim, that it is merely due his watching a movie in the cinema (even though we hold this not to be befitting of any student of knowledge) See the following [url=]post on Salafitalk.[/url]

Clarifying a Doubt

A person may ask should we busy ourselves with the refutation of Shadeed? Then we respond by saying that our refutation of Shadeed is for the sake of Allaah and in protection of His Religion from those who corrupt it and call to misguidance. Our answer can be summarized by the following narration: Muhammad bin Yahyaa adh-Dhuhalee who said: I heard Yahyaa Ibn Maeen saying: "Defense of the Sunnah is more excellent than Jihaad in the path of Allaah." So I said to Yahyaa Ibn Maeen, "A man spends his wealth, tires himself out and strives, but this one (who defends the Sunnah) is better than him?!" He replied, "Yes, by a great deal." (Siyar A'laam an-Nubalaa, 10/518). Therefore, our response to Shadeed is in the defense of the Sunnah from his corrupted Manhaj.

One may further ask, "But is it not the case that remaining silent is better, because the harm caused by refuting Shadeed will be greater than remaining silent?" We answer with the words of Imaam ash-Shaatibee regarding the refutation of the innovators and the erroneous:

"So regarding these types of people, then it is must that they be mentioned, driven out and displaced; and this is because whatever returns back to the Muslims of harm if the refutation was left alone would be even greater than what is attained by the mentioning of their names and fleeing from them if the reason for abandoning the refutation is the fear of splitting and enmity" (al-I'tisaam, 2/229).

'Aasim Ibn al-Ahwal said to Qataadah: "I do not think that the people of knowledge should criticize each other." So Qataadah said: "And do you not know that if a man introduces a bidah, then it is a must that it be mentioned so that it is warned against." (Sharh Usool Ahlis-Sunnah of al-Laalikaaee, 1/154, no. 256).

Since many of the Salafees may be unaware of this principle and have already read his article, which may have left them in confusion, we seek to clarify that which is contains from falsehood.

Shadeed's Disrespect for Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree

First of all, Shadeed's blatant disrespect of the noble Scholar Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree -may Allaah preserve him- with his statement:

"It should be noted that I never requested Shaykh 'Ubayd (may Allaah preserve him) to be a judge in my affair, such that the ruling he gives becomes obligatory upon me."

Before we go on to refute this point, I would like to mention briefly some of Scholars who have praised Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree. From them are Shaykh Rabee', Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, Shaykh Muhammad Baazmool just to say a few. And whoever would like to see their praise in detail can view the following links:

[url=]Biography of Shaykh 'Ubayd[/url]

[url=]Shaykh Muhammad Baazmool Praises Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree[/url]

Back to Shadeeds statement: "it should be noted that I never requested Shaykh 'Ubayd (may Allah preserve him) to be a judge in my affair, such that the ruling he gives becomes obligatory upon me."

This is blatant disrespect and also is hypocritical. First of all whether you requested this from Shaykh 'Ubayd or not, the Shaykh ruled on you in light of the Qur`aan and Sunnah per what was brought to him from your own speech from your lectures, classes and writings. Additionally it is not a condition of refutation that the one being refuted accepts the scholar, or gives permission to the scholar to refute him as Shadeed is implying in his statement! We say to Shadeed: Did al Karaabeesee give Imam Ahmad and others the permission to refute him? Did Abul-Hasan al-Ma'ribee give permission to Shaykh Rabee' to refute him?! Can al-Ma'ribee now claim: "Well I didnt give Shaykh Rabee' permission to judge in my affair, such that the ruling he gives becomes obligatory upon me."?!! Can 'Adnaan 'Ar'oor claim the same or 'Alee al-Halabee?! Rather, if one looks to the books of al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel and refutation upon the people of desires, you are not about to find any of those people labeled as liars or fabricators or innovators asking those Imaams who criticized and refuted them to be judges in their affairs.

We hope the reader can see through this smokescreen set up by Shadeed.

Secondly: When Tahir Wyatt went to Shaykh 'Ubayd regarding your affair and you thought that it would be to your advantage, you quickly posted the words along with the audio- of the Shaykh on your website. And this posting of yours indicates that you were pleased that he rule in your affair at that point! Then if you didnt want Shaykh Ubayd to judge in your affairs, why did you "immediately go to Medinah" when you landed in Saudia?

Shadeed's Attempt to Have the Common Folk Undermine the Statements of the Scholars Regarding Criticized Individual

Also another point that shows your blatant disrespect to Shaykh 'Ubayd is in your statement:

"When I reached Medina, it was communicated to me by one of the students of knowledge there by the name of Tahir Wyatt (may Allah preserve him) that Shaykh 'Ubayd said: "Do not bring Shadeed to me until I call!" Up until the writing of these pages, nothing has been communicated to me in relation to resolving the matter. This unsuccessful attempt to bring rectification to the situation prompted me to seek consultation with some of the other people of knowledge so that I could get advice on how to proceed."

Firstly the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said:

"Deliberation is from Allaah and hastiness is from the Shaytaan." Reported by al-Bayhaqee in ash-Shu'ab and Aboo Ya'laa on the authority of Anas and declared Hasan by Shaykh Albaanee. See Silsilatus-Saheehah (1795).

Is it the fact that you see that Shaykh 'Ubayd hasnt responded to you in which you consider a timely fashion and hasnt allowed you to go back and continue to teach, therefore prompting you to go to Shaykh al-Luhaydaan to find something in their speech that will give you the justification to continue to speak.  Are you so amazed with your own self and your own abilities in the field of da'wah that you believe that the da'wah would enter into turmoil whilst you are awaiting the advice of 'Allaamah 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree? Or is it as 'Allaamah Rabee' al-Madkhalee has stated about you, "He is not fit for da'wah whilst he is in this condition. So if he repents and shows remorse and is upright upon the correct path and the thiqaat from the likes of the brother Aboo Muhammad al-Maghribee and the maintainers of Salafi Publications testify to his recanting, his uprightness and his abstaining from love of fame and this this chair, because his love for fame and this chair has caused the mashaayikh to doubt in him." (See  Indeed, Allaah knows your condition and it is upon you to fear Him. Have respect for the Scholars young man!

Now we would like to show how Shadeed goes on to quote some of the Imaams regarding fataawaa and tries to argue that the mustaftee (i.e. one seeking fatwaa) is not obliged to take the statement of the muftee. I say: this is a statement of truth, intended by it falsehood. Rather, what Shadeed intended by it is to have the common folk undermine the statements of the Scholars regarding criticized individuals and to make it seem that even if you were criticized, that you don't have to take the advice of the Scholars, and no doubt this is from the utmost of falsehood, for verily there is a difference between accepting or rejecting fataawaa of the Scholars and accepting the statement of the Scholars when refuting the innovators and people of desires, for rather this is something which is obligatory and from the aspect of accepting the statement of the trustworthy. This is one of the principles that Shadeed is either ignorant of or feigning ignorance. We'll bring the statement of Shaykh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) in his book entitled 'Ibaaraatul-Moohimah translated to mean "Misleading Statements." He says on page 26 in the Dar Imaam Ahmad print:

"And from the misleading statements is the statement of some of them: "I am not obligated to blind follow this or that Shaykh." Some people use this statement claiming that it is the manhaj of the Salaf, and in reality the usage of this statement may not be correct from many aspects:

Firstly: The place where this statement really should be used is in a matter when the proof is apparent and you have to abide by it. So in this case, no one else is regarded in this matter, whoever they may be, if their speech opposes the authentic speech of the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), for verily everyones statement is accepted or rejected except the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam).

Secondly: To use this statement in issues of ijtihaad from a student of knowledge to therefore reject the speech of the scholars who are greater than him and older than him and more knowledgeable and posses more piety than him, is opposition to the Sunnah of the Salafus-Saalih, may Allaah be pleased with them. For verily in the likes of these matters, one of them would leave their statement for the statement of another who is more knowledgeable than him, and he didnt used to say, 'I am not obliged to take the statement of this Shaykh.'

Thirdly: The origin is that the Muslim should accuse his own self, especially if it is in a matter which he is opposing someone who is more knowledgeable than him. In this instance it is upon him not to suffice with just his own opinion, so how about if the matter is a matter of news that it is incumbent for him to follow, and he is not allowed to oppose it? Rather even in the issues of ijithaad, the Sunnah of the Companions, may Allaah be pleased with them, that one of them used to leave his own statement for the statement of those who a more knowledgeable than them.

Fourthly: Having reverence of the Scholars is the Sunnah, and this particular statement opposes showing reverence to the Scholars. Without a doubt, if a proof becomes clear in a matter, you have to take it, for verily there is no regard to any statement if there is proof, whoever it may be, because everyone's statement is accepted or rejected except the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam).

However the affair here is that some people say this statement in a situation where the proof hasnt come apparent just to oppose the Scholar. Isnt it not the truth in this situation to recognize the virtue of the Scholars and that they are more guided and more knowledgeable and have more piety and taqwaa, and that one accuses themselves (of being mistaken) when alongside their statement and to beware of opposing them? May Allaah pardon us!

The Fifth: Making taqleed is not absolutely impermissible: for verily the common person and those like him from the followers [of the imams], if they can not arrive to the proof, and likewise the mujtahid, if making ijtihaad can not be facilitated for him or is unable to decipher the proofs [in a certain matter], upon him is to blind follow, this is what is obligatory regarding him. It has been reported concerning Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, -may Allaah have mercy on him- in a matter which he didnt know the proof concerning, he used to take the opinion of ash-Shaafi'ee -may Allah have mercy on him.

So just using this statement unrestrictedly misleads the Muslim that it is impermissible for him to make taqleed in all circumstances, and this is in opposition to what the scholars derived concerning this.

Sixthly: There is a difference between al-ittibaa' (following a Scholar) and taqleed. This is because al-ittibaa' is to take a statement which its proof has become clear to you, and taqleed is to take a statement and blind follow it, just like the collar that goes around the neck [of an animal] and they are just directed without having any knowledge.

And that which is prohibited regarding taqleed relates to the one who is qualified and is able to look into the proofs. As for al-ittibaa' which is to take the statement of a scholar along with his proofs which has become clear to you, this is not prohibited, rather it is obligatory for the one who is able to do so and they are not able to do what is greater than that.

Seventhly: It is incumbent to differentiate between the situation of taking the ijtihaad of a mujtahid in a matter of ijthaad, and between following a scholar regarding that which he informed of. For verily following him, if the matter is like this, is from the aspect of accepting the news of the trustworthy, and this is obligatory, except if it becomes apparent that he has erred. In this situation one can not say "I am not obliged to take the statement of this Scholar! or I am not taking his statement regarding so and so until I hear the error myself".

All of this is using this statement out of context!

So a person who is well known to you and he comes to you with a detailed criticism from a Scholar who is trustworthy, the origin is that you follow the statement of this Scholar. You dont say: well I know him, so I'm not taking the detailed criticism until I hear it myself. You do not say this, and this is exiting from the way of the Salaf in this matter. Yes, the general criticism regarding the one whose uprightness has been established is not accepted, and the criticism takes precedence over the praise, except if the one who praises him mentions why he was criticized and refutes the reason [he was originally refuted].

End of the words of Shaykh Muhammad Baazmool.

Pay attention firstly, Shadeed, and then readers, to these principles of the Salaf. Where have we gone from them?  As Shaykh Baazmool explains here, that firstly taqleed is permissible in certain circumstances, also showing reverence to the scholars is Sunnah and most importantly that the issue here is not merely the issue of taqleed like Shadeed is trying to convince the people, rather this is a matter of al-ittibaa' and accepting the news of the trustworthy. For verily Shaykh 'Ubayd and Shaykh Rabee' are well known Salafee Scholars who based their criticism of Shadeed on proofs and evidences, and the affair is not as Shadeed is trying to instill in the people with his false principle and misleading statement: "I'm not obliged to follow Shaykh 'Ubayd's statement."

If this was the case we could say this about every situation where a person who falls into opposition is spoken against. Like when Shaykh Rabee' -may Allah preserve him- spoke about Aboo Muslimah, one could just say: well we are  not obliged to follow the Shaykh's statement and we are still going to take from him. Or the statements of the Scholars concerning Aboo Usaamah and Bilaal Phillips and 'Alee Tameemee and other than them. Also before them are the heads of innovation whom the Scholars have spoken against like Ja'd Ibn Dirham and Ma'bad al-Juhanee and al Karaabeesee and so on and so forth. By Allaah, this principle that you're trying to invent is a door to fitnah. Rather, what the Shaykh said of you was based on proofs and evidences which some people may comprehend and some may not comprehend however we take the information of the Scholar who is trustworthy concerning their detailed criticism that is based on proofs. So the matter is not merely going against the Scholars or disobeying the Scholars, as you try to belittle the affair of those who have trust in our scholars. Rather, it is the aforementioned matters mentioned by Shaykh Baazmool.

Furthermore, I remind you of the beneficial work put together by our brother Abul-Hasan Maalik against the hizbee Aboo Muslimah titled [url=]"Uncovering the Hidden Hizbee"[/url] when he mentioned this same principle espoused by Aboo Muslimah: "How can he make a ruling on me and he dont know me?" Just like Aboo Muslimah, Shadeed it shows that you are ignorant of the principles of the science of al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel. Did you forget the well known narration of what transpired between Daawood adh-Dhaahiree and Imam Ahmad when Daawood adh-Dhaahiree came to visit Ahmad in Baghdaad, he knocked on the door of Imam Ahmad and 'Abdullaah answered the door. So Daawood adh-Dhaahiree said: "Tell your father that a man from Khuraasaan has come to see him." When Imam Ahmad heard this he said:

"If this man is Daawood adh-Dhaahiree tell him to remove himself from my door, for verily Imam adh-Dhuhalee has written to me that he is from those who has spoken in the creation of the Qur`aan." So upon hearing this Daawood adh-Dhaahiree denied this. Imam Ahmad said: "It is true! For Imaam adh-Dhuhalee is from the trustworthy narrators and is more trusted than Daawood."

Abul-Hasan Maalik goes on to comment:

"So we see that Imam Ahmad accepted the news about Daawood adh-Dhaahiree because the narration of the trustworthy is accepted, this is a well known principle in the science of hadeeth. Lastly Aboo Muslimah accuses all who accept the ruling of the Shaykh to be blind followers of the Shaykh. Does he accuse Imam Ahmad to be a blind follower of Imaam adh-Dhuhalee. We ask Allaah not to misguide us after guiding us."

More to come - inshaa` Allaah...

Exposing a Lie in Shadeed's Article, "Blowing the Whistle"

Prepared by Anwar Wright

In his feeble attempt to criticize me regarding what I translated from Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree, Shadeed Muhammad stated on page 2 of his article, Blowing the Whistle,

In essence, what Shaykh Ubayd (may Allah preserve him) offered was scholarly advice. However, it was based on erroneous information that was tactfully presented to him. When Hasan as-Somali called Shaykh Ubayd, he told the Shaykh that I was giving a lecture called Al-Fikr al-Salafi fil Gharb3 which is translated as "Salafi Thought in the West". It was NOT an accurate translation of "The Paradigm Shift" as was advertised on the internet! But when Anwar Wright translated the proposed question, coupled with the Shaykh‟s response in English, it read Second Question: Likewise Shaykh, he has advertised a lesson that will take place Saturday 7/31/10 called "Paradigm Shift of" and this is not what they said to the Shaykh in their initial question!

Then, in a footnote to the above statement, Shadeed adds,

3 Shaykh Ubayd mentioned this in front of Tahir Wyatt and at least three other brothers who were present.

Despite what you say was related to you by Tahir Wyatt, all praises are for Allaah that we conveyed to the Shaykh the correct title, which was not Al Fikr  As Salafi as you mentioned and everything we translated from the Shaykh was translated word for word and you can listen to it for yourself on the following link:

Click here to listen to the audio

Here, at the 7 second mark, Hasan as-Somali can clearly be heard mentioning the title of the talk to Shaykh 'Ubayd.

So Shadeed's lie upon us here can be seen clear as day.  Rather, it was translated to Shaykh 'Ubayd as, "at-tahawwul fin-namoodhajil-fikree fid-dawatis-salafiyyah fi-gharb," which no doubt, in English translates to mean: "The Paradigm Shift of the Salafee Da'wah in the West."

More to come inshaa` Allaah...

AbuAbdir-Razzaq    -- 27-12-2010 @ 4:31 AM
  AsSalaamu alaykum the folowing is from the website and is a question put to Shaykh Muhammad Bazmool around 8 years ago and how relevant it still is May Allah reward the Shaykh and the translator.



What is your advice for the common Muslims of the West who hear about the scholars criticizing people involved in da'wah, and they do not accept this criticism, saying, "We know these callers, and we have never met those scholars. So how can we leave those we have known for years for the statements of those we never met?"

ANSWER by Shaykh Muhammad 'Umar Baazmool, instructor at Umm Al-Quraa University in Makkah

The principle in this kind of affair is that the report of a trusted person is to be accepted. So if a statement from one of the scholars of the Salaf reaches us, clarifying the situation of a person, that he had some problems, then it is binding on the one who hears such a statement to receive and accept the report of that trustworthy person. This is the case so long as nothing comes to contradict or disprove the criticism or show that the criticism was out of place.

For example, if a scholar's criticism of someone reaches us, then it is binding on us to accept this statement of criticism about such a person from that scholar, and it is to be relied upon. And if you find another scholar praising that individual, then the principle is that the criticism takes precedence over the praise, so long as the one who praised the individual has not come with a clear explanation of the other scholar's criticism, disproving it and nullifying it clearly. In this case, we go by the statement of the scholar who praised the individual.

In any case other than this, then the principle is that we must accept and rely upon the statements of a trustworthy scholar, especially when his criticism is detailed, explaining the reason for such criticism along with the proofs that necessitated the criticism of that individual. And when this kind of report reaches the people, they have no alternative except to take it.

I will give you an example to help clarify this. Imagine if we did not accept the reports of the imaams of Hadeeth with regards to the narrators of hadeeth, their criticism and praise of them. Could the authentic narrations of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) be distinguished from the unauthentic ones? The answer: No, we would not be able to distinguish, since we would not be relying on the very factor that allows us to distinguish the saheeh from the dha'eef, the statements of the scholars about the narrators that conveyed the narrations to us.

Similarly, in this day and time, the scholars continue to convey what they have witnessed and know about situations of different individuals. This testimony is considered either jarh or ta'deel. Ta'deel means statements that encourage us to take knowledge from them, and jarh means criticism that prevents us from doing so, and obliges us to warn the people against them, and Allaah knows best.

Compromising Or Giving Da'wah?

Shaykh Zayd Ibn Haadee Al-Madkhalee (may Allah preserve him) was asked:

If I was invited by [mubtadiah] innovators to attend their Masjid to deliver a sermon or a piece of admonition should I attend or refuse?

No, do not refuse if the people of innovation invite you to the Masjid to deliver a sermon, admonish them or establish a seminar or a lecture. However, it is upon you to address the innovation that they are falling into. You must address the innovation and clarify its harms, and [do this] by utilising the verses of the Quran and Prophetic Ahadeeth as a proof. Perhaps Allah, the Mighty and Majestic, will guide those of his servants that he chooses to guide through this talk, admonition and sermon; and you will receive the reward. And Allah knows best.


Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan was asked:

Are the groups to be associated with or are they to be abandoned?

He replied, When the intent behind mixing with them is to call them to adhere to the Book and the Sunnah and to leave the error, for the one who has knowledge and insight, then this is something good. And this is from calling to Allaah. As for when this mixing is for the sake of friendliness with them and companionship with them, without calling them, and without clarifying, then this is not permissible.

It is not permissible for a person that he should mix with those who oppose [the truth] except from an angle within which there is a legislated benefit, from calling them to the correct Islaam, and explanation of the truth to them so that they may return. As Ibn Masood went to the Innovators who were in the mosque and who stood over them and rejected their bidah. And also Ibn Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with them both) who went to the Khawaarij and debated with them and repelled their doubts and then amongst them were those who returned (to the truth). Hence, mixing with them is from this angle, then this is desired. And if they then persist upon their falsehood it is obligatory to leave them and shun them, and to make jihad against them for the sake of Allaah. (Al-Ajwibah al-Mufeedah p.12).

Let us be honest with the situation at hand and not be blinded by emotions.

Everyone knows that when you accept a salary from an administration there must be a level of friendship and companionship, as they are your bosses and can fire you when they please.

A few questions:

How can Shadeed remain silent about this Masjid advertising for renowned Sufis? How is it that he can share a pulpit with a renowned Asharee who is an outspoken critic of the creed of Ahl Us Sunnah without clarifying his errors?

Brothers and sisters, this is the same Shadeed that has written hundreds of pages about the Salafis, and Allahs aid is sought.

For anyone with two eyes this nothing but flattery!

Insha Allah I will add the words of the Muhaddith, Al-Imam Albani (may Allah have mercy upon him) shortly.

Shadeed Muhammad has not Understood the Issue of Khalwah
Compare His Statement to that of the Scholars

Shadeed Muhammad was asked, "Is it permissible to be alone with the person you are intended to?"

So he answered,

"Alone in the same room? No. In the same room, the prophet sallahu alaihi wa sallam said if the two people are alone then the third person is the shaytaan. However in public, if your in public, in a public place and whatever the case may be, then this is not to be considered alone.  That hadeeth doesnt apply to you.  However, being aone in the room together by yourselves, just you and the sister is something that you should stay away from..."

The Permanent Committee for Knowledge-Based Research and Verdicts was asked:

هل الخلوة هي فقط أن يخلو الرجل بامرأة في بيت ما، بعيدا عن أعين الناس، أو هي كل خلوة رجل بامرأة ولو كان أمام أعين الناس؟

[Q]: Is khalwah (seclusion) only when a man is secluded with a woman in any house, far away from the eyes of the people, or it is every (form of) seclusion of a man with a woman, even if they are in front of the peoples' eyes?

So they replied:

ليس المراد بالخلوة المحرمة شرعا انفراد الرجل بامرأة أجنبية منه في بيت بعيدا عن أعين الناس فقط، بل تشمل انفراده بها في مكان تناجيه ويناجيها، وتدور بينهما الأحاديث، ولو على مرأى من الناس دون سماع حديثهما، سواء كان ذلك في فضاء أم سيارة أو سطح بيت أو نحو ذلك؛ لأن الخلوة منعت لكونها بريد الزنا وذريعة إليه، فكل ما وجد فيه هذا المعنى ولو بأخذ وعد بالتنفيذ بعد فهو في حكم الخلوة الحسية بعيدا عن أعين الناس. وبالله التوفيق، وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه وسلم.

[A]: The intended meaning of the khalwah that is unlawful in the Sharee'ah is not merely the solitude of a man with a woman who is not a mahram to him inside a house far away from the eyes of the people only.  Rather, it comprises his solitude with her in every place where they can carry on a whispered conversation and conversations can go on around them.  Even if they are in view of the people, but the people cannot hear their conversation, regardless of whether that takes place in an open space or inside a car or on the roof of a house or the likes of that, because the khalwah has been prohibited since it is a means to zinaa (adultery, fornication) and a pretext to it.  So everything that falls into this meaning, even if is promised at in that public setting to do something later, then it takes the ruling of actual seclusion that is far away from the eyes of the people.  And the success is with Allaah.  And may the peace and salutations of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his Family and His Companions.

Shadeed Muhammad's Belittlement of those who Teach the Qur`aan and Usooluth-Thalaathah and his Belittlement of those who Teach and Give Importance to the 'Aqeedah and Proof of his Lack of Understanding of the Importance of the Islaamic Creed

Prepared by Anwar Wright

Shadeed Muhammad says:

Unless we start to encourage the brothers, as well as the sisters to start educating themselves, to start going to college and getting degrees and getting careers. Looking at the types of careers out there, that are, you know careers that are never ending careers like the IT field, technology field. And in most of the inner cities man, subhaanallaah, they offer free programs, but you find the brothers and sisters... We don't find that type of encouragement coming from the du'aat, coming from the Imaams. We don't hear that encouragement for the people to go to college, for the people to get degrees for the people to get skills, trades. Where is that encouragement coming from? All we hear is the encouragement to memorize the Qur`aan, to memorize Usooluth-Thalaathah, take from the Scholars. Na'm, all of that has its place, but what about the economic affairs we're suffering from now. Salafee masjids closing down because we don't have sufficient funds.

Shadeed also says:

That was the social ills of this community.  While we tend to just kind of overlook these things and you know, focus more on Tawheed, focus more on teaching classes and that's it and not dealing with this aspect.  We have brothers and sisters who suffer from a variety of social ills. Domestic ills, you have domestic violence in our community. Brothers have a problem with putting their hands on women. You have sisters who subconsciously like for men to put their hands on them so they provoke the man to put their hands on them because they...[words unclear] All of these issues exist in our communites and you're not going to...[scoffs]... you're not going to address those issues just by teaching Kitaabut-Tawheed. You're not going to address these issues by teaching Usooluth-Thalaathah. That only covers one aspect of your role as a leader in the community.

Shadeed also says:

But the majority is doing what? The majority is doing what? Sitting back memorizing - maashaa` Allaah tabaarakallaah - we not going to be able to keep the lights on because you memorized Thalaathatul-Usool, and that's not downplaying Thalaathatul-Usool, but that's also doing exactly what the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) encouraged us to, encouraged us to do. Be self sufficient. You can't be self-sufficient, we can't be Salafee and...and be self sufficient from the hizbees and self-sufficient from the kuffaar. Wallaahi, we're a minority amongst a minority.  As Salafees we are a minority amongst the Muslims who are a minority living in the lands of the kuffaar. But where is, where is the encouragement to get an education? Where is the encouragement for brothers to go out, brothers, you have brothers...Wallaahil-'Adheem, you have brothers who will not take a job because he will not take off his thawb.

Shadeed also says:

We are the ones who have made the Religion so difficult. And in the midst of us putting all this information out there, we are losing the..just the, the, the very basics of the Religion, the very basics of the Religion. We've taken Usooluth-Thalaathah and turned it into, you know what I'm saying, something that takes us months, maybe even take us a year to complete; Usooluth-Thalaathah, the three questions, three fundamental principles, extracted from the three questions that will be asked to you in the grave.  Who is Your Lord?  What is Your Deen? And Who is your Messenger? Those three questions, something very basic, very simple. You find the Scholars come behind and they go into so much detail, I mean, Wallaahi, I've seen Usooluth-Thalaathah explained, explained in a week. And of course this is more of the older Scholars because they not going into all those details. And of course, this is more of the older Scholars, because they're not going into all those details.  Shaykh Ibn Baaz - rahimahullaahu ta'aalaa - is not going into any detail.  He's going to explain to you what Tawheed is, he is going to explain to you who the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) is and what our... and what his rights over us areand he's going to explain to us in general the pillars of Islaam, which clarify the Deen of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa.

We say, Subhaanallaah! What is Shadeed's grudge with Thalaathatul-Usool??? Here Shadeed finds the Imaams and du'aat blameworthy for encouraging the Muslims to memorize the Book of Allaah and Usooluth-Thalaathah and not encouraging them to get degrees. Does he also criticize the great Scholars of Islaam as well who have written numerous works on Islaamic creed, tafseer, hadeeth and other subjects but did not mention worldly degrees?

He also insinuates that the reason for the lights being shut off in the Masaajid and their closing is because people are sitting back memorizing Usooluth-Thalaathah. Where is the  reality of this individuals speech??!! By Allaah, we challenge him to name these Salafee masjids that have been closed down. This is another example of his gross exaggeration. In actual fact- And all praise is due to Allaah, the number of Masaajid upon the Sunnah is increasing and not decreasing.

Has he become so deceived with the dunyaa and obtaining worldly degrees that it has led him to wrongfully criticize those who encourage the memorization of the Book of Allaah and the 'aqeedah of Tawheed, which is the wisdom behind the creation of the Jinn and mankind?

Firstly, as for you belittling the memorization of Qur`aan, has not Allaah the Mighty and Majestic said:

 Al-Isra (17):9

Verily, this Qur'n guides to that which is most just and right and gives glad tidings to the believers (in the Oneness of Allh and His Messenger, Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), etc.). who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a great reward (Paradise).

Was it not authentically reported that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said:

The best of you are those who learn the Qur`aan and teach it.

Did he (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) not used to say during the Khutbatul-Haajah:

And indeed the best speech is the speech of Allah.

So where is the blame in encouraging the Muslims to memorize the the Qur`aan whether they mention worldly degrees besides this or not?

Furthermore we have not heard any of the du'aat warning against obtaining worldly degrees in those matters that are a necessity to benefit the Muslim Ummah. Rather, no one denies that we need Muslims who have degrees in various fields for the benefit of the Muslim communities. However, this does not take precedence over learning the 'aqeedah and learning Tawheed, so that one may know its opposite, which is Shirk, to be warned from it and stay away from it.

Secondly, it is possible that Shadeed continues to make these general and blanket statements due to his lack of communication with the Imaams and callers that he consistently scorns and looks down upon.

There is a section on Salafitalk about hijrah and in it there is a post about getting degrees and how to obtain degrees online and through distance learning. [url=]Here's the link on Salafitalk.[/url]

This was posted in 2009!!  We mention to you the well known principle: "Absence of knowledge does not necessitate a thing's absence." And just because Shadeed didn't know that we have been discussing these matters does not mean we were not, and here is a clear example we have!

We also would like to make mention that if one must obtain a worldly degree, it must be through proper means (like independent study) that avoid impermissible intermingling. You also find that in these universities there are many things that are taught that oppose the beliefs of the Muslims from Polytheism to Atheism to Darwinism, Philosophy etc. And there is no question that the average Muslim's belief can be corrupted by these teachings and may cause many to go astray. So for example, in a biology class, they teach that Evolution is a fact and that Creationism is a myth. Imagine the common Muslims being bombarded with these teachings on a daily basis in the university without Islamic knowledge to counter and protect them from the falsehood!

Related to this topic is that which was mentioned by al-'Allaamah Saalih al-Fawzaan - may Allaah preserve him - in his explanation of Usooluth-Thalaathah pg. 19 ( Mu`assasatul Risaalah print):

And as for worldly knowledge, whoever is ignorant of it does not incur sin, and whoever learns it then it is permissible and if he benefits with this knowledge the Ummah then he is rewarded for that. And if a person dies and is ignorant of this knowledge, he will not be called to account on the day of resurrection, however whoever dies and he is ignorant of the legislative knowledge, especially the necessary knowledge (i.e. the 'aqeedah), he will be asked about this on the Day of Resurrection. Why didn't you learn? Why didn't you ask? The one who says when he is put in his grave: my Lord is Allaah and Islam is my Religion, and my Prophet is Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). This is the one who will be saved, and it will be said to him: where did you get this from? He will say: I read the book of Allaah and I learned it.

Lastly, there is  a hadeeth reported with the wording:

Verily, Allaah hates the one who walks boastfully and is harsh, the one who raises his voice in the marketplace about worldly matters, a corpse at night (i.e. sleeps through the night and doesn't rise for the night Prayer) and brays like a donkey during the day, knowledgeable about the worldly affairs, ignorant about the affairs of the hereafter.

Shaykh al-Albaanee - may Allaah have mercy on him - initially found this hadeeth to be authentic and then declared it to be weak, but comments on the narration by saying:

"And how great does this hadeeth apply - even though it is weak - on the kuffaar who do not give importance to their Hereafter, although having knowledge of the affairs of their dunyaa. Just as Allaah says regarding them: "They know that which is apparent from the worldly life, and they are unmindful of the Hereafter." Also you find that some Muslims have a great portion of this description. Those who spend their day walking through the marketplaces and screaming therein, and they neglect the obligations and Prayers.
  Al-Ma'un (107):4-7
 ¤   ¤   ¤   ¤ 

So woe unto those performers of Salt (prayers) (hypocrites), Who delay their Salt (prayer) from their stated fixed times, Those who do good deeds only to be seen (of men), And refuse Al-M'n (small kindnesses e.g. salt, sugar, water, etc.).

See Silsilatud-Da'eefah no. 2304.

As for you belittling Usooluth-Thalaathah and criticizing the Scholars, claiming we have turned it into something that takes months or even a year to complete and that it is something very basic and simple and you've seen it taught in a week - we say: this statement along with your insinuation that the Imaams and callers are blameworthy for not encourage towards the obtainment of worldly degrees the same kind encouragement they give to the memorization of the Qur`aan and Usooluth-Thalaathah, and also your position that learning the likes of this book and also Kitaabut-Tawheed are not enough to correct the ills of society or will not keep our children off the street corners.

Verily these statements of yours reminds us of the statement of Muhammad Suroor Zainul-'Aabideen - may Allaah guide him - who said:

"Our era is in need of new solutions and the style of the books of 'Aqeedah are (jaafah) dry and dull because its just texts and rulings."

Dear readers, look at how Shadeed's statement coincides with Muhammad Suroor's statement that both indicate, that the books of 'Aqeedah will not rectify the ills of present day society, and that we need new solutions!!!!! Wallaahi, that which corrected the early generations was Tawheed and no doubt it is the only thing that will correct the latter generations. Imaam Maalik, -may Allaah have mercy on him- said:

The latter part of this Ummah will not be rectified except with that which rectified its beginning."

And indeed  the scholars have refuted Muhammad Suroor and this statement of his. From them Shaykh Muhammad Amman al-Jaamee - may Allaah have mercy on him- and Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan - may Allaah preserve him.

Shaykh Saalih al Fawzaan answers when asked about Suroor's statement:

"There are people who have asceticism when it comes to teaching 'aqeedah and they abstain from the books of the Salaf and they abstain from the books of the Imams of Islam. And they want to turn the people to their own works and books and those like them from the ignorant and the callers to misguidance. This person is from the callers to misguidance and we ask Allah for the well being. So it is a must that this book of his (Manhajul-Anbiyaa` fid-Da'wah ilallaah) be warned against and we warn against him. And I mention to you that Shaykh Muhammad Amman al Jaamee - may Allaah have mercy on him- filled an entire tape surrounding this statement "the books of 'aqeedah are (merely) text and rulings." He refuted him extensively, so upon you is to find the tape and spread it amongst the Muslims so they may be warned from this evil..."
See al-Ajwibatul Mufeedah by Shaykh Fawzaan, question number 28.

We ask Shadeed, how many Scholars have given importance to the extraordinary work Usooluth-Thalaathah by the Imaam of Da'wah Shaykh Muhammad Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhaab - may Allaah have mercy on him? From them are Shaykh Ibn Baaz and Shaykh 'Uthaymeen and Shaykh Saalih al Fawzaan and Shaykh Ahmad an Najmee and Shaykh Muhammad Amaan al-Jaamee and Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree and Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhlaee - May Allah have mercy on those who have passed and preserve those still amongst us. Why did they give great importance to this book? It is because they know that the most noble of affairs is the affair of Tawheed, which is the right of Allaah upon His slaves?

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee - may Allaah preserve him - mentions in the  introduction of his explanations  to Usooluth-Thalaathah,

"And the foremost of affairs to be given importance to in a complete manner in this affair of Tawheed is what was authored by this great Imaam, Usooluth-Thalaathah, due to it entailing the important foundations of the Religion and great and priceless principles, supported by the Book and Sunnah. And it is easy for the beginner to memorize and the one who isn't a beginner is not exempt from taking understanding from it. And even if it may be small in size, its meaning is very vast." Refer to Tareequl-Wusool (p. 14) of Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee.

As for your statement,

"You find the scholars come behind and they go into so much detail. I've seen it explained in a week."

Look how Shadeed finds blame in the Scholars who go into detail in teaching Usooluth-Thalaathah, which entails the foundations of the Religion. This is another aspect of his profound ignorance and also his disrespect for the Scholars. How many of the Scholars past and present that have authored books or have written many pages surrounding one hadeeth. An example of this is Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah's explanation of the hadeeth, "O my slaves, verily I have made oppression forbidden upon myself," and Aboo Amr al-Madeenee's (d.333H) explanation of the hadeeth, "May Allaah illuminate the face of the one who hears my statement" And Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin al-'Abbaad has a lengthy  explanation of the same hadeeth. Also Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin's explanation of the hadeeth of Jibreel. Also, see at-Tabaraanee's gathering of the paths of the hadeeth, "Whoever lies upon me intentionally." Also, see as Suyootee's gathering of the paths of the hadeeth, "Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim." And what about Ibn Rajab's explanation of the hadeeth, "No two hungry wolves amongst a flock of sheep..." regarding the blameworthiness of seeking wealth and status, which was translated by our brother Daawood Burbank, and what about Ibn Rajab's explanation of the hadeeth, "I have been sent with the sword before the coming of the hour?" Do you blame all of these Imaams of going into "so much detail" in explaining just one hadeeth? So what about if the Scholar is explaining a matn and the matn is surrounding the affairs of 'aqeedah??

As for your statement:

"I've seen it explained in a week."

If we submit for argument sake that you did witness this for example during some of the dawraat (seminars) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which are held during the breaks, even with this you almost always hear the Scholars when explaining books at these dawraat mention that the time allotted for these seminars are not enough and it is only intended that the student of knowledge obtains some benefit and a general understanding of the book. However, as for giving the book the detailed explanation it deserves, then no. Then more importantly we know that the Scholars teach the students in accordance to their levels. So is the level of the common folk here in America the same as students of knowledge who study in Saudia???? So this is another example of  how Shadeed belittles teaching Tawheed and him mocking the Scholars who nurture the Ummah upon these books.

Our noble brother Abul Hasan Maalik on his journey to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia this past summer met with Shaykh Rabee' - may Allaah preserve him - in his house and he asked Abul-Hasan what he was teaching the Muslims in America. Abul-Hasan replied that he was teaching Imam an-Nawawee's Forty Hadeeth and al-Kabaa`ir (Major Sins) by adh-Dhahabee. Upon hearing this, the Shaykh stopped Abul-Hasan and said:

"Is this it? You should also be teaching the people the treatises of 'aqeedah and Tawheed."

Shaykh Saalih al Fawzaan-May Allah preserve him- was asked in al-Ajwibatul-Mufeedah question 34: "You find many of the youth in these times neglecting and abandoning learning 'aqeedah, studying it and giving importance to it, and busying themselves with other matters so what is your advice to these youth?"

The Shaykh answered:

"Verily, I advise the youth and other than them from the Muslims to firstly give importance to the 'aqeedah before everything because 'aqeedah is the foundation which all actions are built upon in regards to being accepted or rejected. And if the 'aqeedah is correct, in accordance to what the Messengers ('alayhimus-salaam) was sent with and in particular the Last of the Prophets, our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), then the rest of the actions will be accepted if these actions are sincerely seeking the face of Allaah and in accordance to what Allaah and His Messenger legislated. And if the 'aqeedah is corrupt or misguided by being based on customs and blind following of forefathers or is an 'aqeedah based on Shirk, then the actions will be rejected and none of them will be accepted, even if a person was sincere seeking thereby the face of Allah. This is because Allah does not accept any deeds except that which is sincerely seeking His Glorious Face and in accordance with the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallaahu 'alahyi wa sallam). So whoever would like savior for himself and wants their actions to be accepted and wants to be a true Muslim, he has to give importance to the 'aqeedah. That he knows the correct 'aqeedah and that which opposes it and contradicts it so he can build his actions upon that. And this only occurs by learning it from the people of knowledge and the people of insight who have learned it from the Salaf of this Ummah. He The Most High and Exalted said to His Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam):

 Muhammad (47):19

So know (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)) that L ilha ill-Allh (none has the right to be worshipped but Allh), and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women. And Allh knows well your moving about, and your place of rest (in your homes).

Lastly I would like to refute Shadeed's claim,

"We cannot be Salafee and be self sufficient from the hizbees and kuffaar."

Has Shadeed forgotten the well known mutawaatir hadeeth in which the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) states:

"There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah victorious upon the truth, those who oppose them or forsake them will not harm them until the command of Allah is established."

'Alee Ibnul-Madeenee (D.234H) said:

"They are Ahlul-Hadeeth and those who stick close to the statements of the Messenger and defend the knowledge. If it wasn't for them you would not find amongst the Mu'tazilah, the Raafidah, the Jahmiyyah, the people of al-Irjaa` and opinion, having anything from the narrations.

And Imaam al-Bukhaaree (d.256H) said:

"We were three or four on the doorstep of 'Alee Ibnul-Madeenee and he said: Verily I hope that the explanation of this hadeeth from the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), "There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah victorious upon the truth, those who oppose them or forsake them will not harm them," verily I hope that the explanation of this hadeeth means you (i.e. meaning al-Bukhaaree and those with him and Ahlul-Hadeeth), because the merchants have become busy with their trading and the people of trades have become busying with their trades , and the kings have become busy with their kingdom, and you love the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam)." Refer to Sharaf Ashaabul Hadeeth by Khateeb Baghdaadee.

So where are you - O Shadeed - from the way of the Salaf from the Sahaabah and those who followed them in goodness up until this day?  How far removed are you from that which they were upon! Due to this we will continue to warn the people from your misguidance, so as not to become victim to your corrupt teachings and philosophies. It is clear that Shadeed does not understand the way to achieve rectification according to Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah, may Allaah guides us and him to the truth.

Where is Shadeed Muhammad's
Objection to the Movie Being Promoted by His Masjid?
How Does This Fit in with the "Community-Building"
That He Claims to Do?

Shadeed wrote in his "Paradigm Shift" article, whilst speaking about his going out to the cinema,

The other incident that took place while I was in Tobago, one which I make no excuses for and one which I am utterly ashamed of, is that I took my family to the movies. I realize that this was inappropriate...

And he wrote,

As for myself, I sincerely apologize to the brothers and sisters I have hurt in all of this. I am far from perfect...

And he wrote,

I don't want the people using the situation surrounding me as an excuse to be negligent regarding the rights of their Lord over them. Use this situation to make you a stronger slave of Allah...

And now we see the masjid, at which he is the Imaam, is advertising the movie, "Mooz-Lum" and its opening in Philadelphia :

Then they are advertising - in their newsletter - a preview and viewing of a trailer at a Kebab House!  They say the Muslim director/producer will be there.  Allaahul-Musta'aan!

Where is the inkaarul-munkar (objecting to evil) yaa Shadeed?  Why can you only write against the Salafees and not speak out publicly against the corruption from the masjid at which you have taken the Imaam-job?  And refuge is sought with Allaah.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims Salafiyyah is
Not a Card that will Get You into Jannah

Shadeed Muhammad said,

"We sit back and wait and see how many people gonna accept Salafiyyah.  Then boom.  There we go.  We Salafee now.  When Salafiyyah first hit, everybody stand in the back, tryin' to see, you know, how this thing gonna play itself out.  Then when people start comin' into the da'wah, okay boom, now I want to be Salafee.  And then when I come Salafee, I'm come Salafee more than everybody else, and you the last one to accept Salafiyyah!  Maashaa` Allaah, tabaarakallaah.  And that doesn't make anyone better than anybody else.  However, this is some of the things that has taken place in the past.  That doesn't make you any better than anybody else because you was the first... You should be ashamed of yourself to even say, "I brought Salafiyyah to my city," or, "I was the first Salafee in my city." That's tazkiyatun-nafs.  That's you considering yourself purified, more purer than anyone else.  And Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa prohibits us from that, "falaa tuzakkoo anfusakum, huwa a'lamu bimanittaqaa."  "Don't purify yourselves.  Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa knows who fears Him."  Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."

Click here to listen to the audio


[1]: In his usual style, Shadeed cannot hold himself back from deriding and degrading the Salafees.  This has been observed as a constant theme throughout his lectures.  Meanwhile, the sects of innovation are safe from his tongue.

[2]: When he speaks, he speaks with exaggerations, instead of observing the tafseel with which the Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah speak.  So for example, even when you see some of the Scholars giving an advice to the Salafees to rectify a shortcoming that they have, the Scholars will never belittle Salafiyyah itself.  However, Shadeed cannot resist the chance to throw in his comment, "Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."

[3]: Since Shadeed was not around "when Salafiyyah first hit," what is he talking about?  Which individuals and which cities is he speaking about?  Once again, this is an example of his exaggerated manner of speaking.  This manner of speaking is far removed from the tafseel that we see from the Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah.

[4]: He says, "Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."  So if Salafiyyah will not get you into Jannah - yaa Shadeed, then what will?  Fear Allaah and leave alone such false slogans when speaking to the common-folk.  Better yet, take the advice of Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee and refrain from da'wah, as he said that you are not suitable for it.

[5]: Salafiyyah will get you into Jannah.  Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn Baaz (d.1420H) was asked about the Saved-Sect, so he said: "They are the Salafees." Refer to Minhaajul-Firqatun-Naajiyah (p. 10) of Muhammad Jameel Zaynoo.

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said,

"Salafiyyah is the Saved Sect, and they are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah."  Refer to the cassette tape at-Tahdheer minal-Bid'ah, casstte no. 2.

Additionally, Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan was asked, "Does the correctness of a person's methodology determine Paradise or Hellfire for him?"  
So he replied,

"Yes. When a person's manhaj is correct, he becomes one of the inhabitants of Paradise. So when he is upon the manhaj of the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and the methodology of the Salafus-Saalih, he becomes one of the people of Paradise by the permission of Allaah. However, when he traverses upon the methodology of those who are astray, then he has been threatened with Hellfire." Refer to al-Ajwibatul-Mufeedah (p. 125).

So this is what we see from the Scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah.  Salafiyyah is the methodology of the Saved-Sect.  And we see Shadeed contradicting this speech with his gross exaggeration, "Salafiyyah is not a card that will get you into Jannah."

[6]: Observe - noble reader - that the speech of the Scholars about Salafiyyah conveys a tone of praise and encouragement.  All we have seen Shadeed do is criticize and belittle, not just the Salafees, but Salafiyyah itself, as he has done in this statement.

[7]: It is important to note that even when the Scholars wish to make a statement about those who abuse the term, "Salafiyyah," they do it with the proper tafseel (elaboration), so as not to confuse the common folk.  For example, take a look the statement of Imaam Ibnul-'Uthaymeen (d.1421H),

"Indeed, we praise Allaah the Glorified and Exalted for facilitating our brother, Dr. Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee to visit this region.  So that the one to whom certain matters are not apparent may come to know that our brother, may Allaah grant us and him success, is upon Salafiyyah, the way of the Salaf. And I do not mean here that Salafiyyah is a hizb (party) which is set up to oppose the Muslims outside of it, but I mean by Salafiyyah, that he (i.e. Shaykh Rabee') is upon the path of the Salaf in his manhaj. Especially in the field of actualising Tawheed and throwing aside what opposes this."

[url=]Click here to listen to the audio[/url]

So even though Shaykh Ibnul-'Uthaymeen mentioned that there are those who make Salafiyyah into a hizb, he still showed the honour that is due to the correct methodology by clarifying that Salafiyyah is the way of the Salaf.  He did not speak about Salafiyyah in a derogatory manner like Shadeed, "Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."  And then the Shaykh mentioned the example of someone who is upon the correct Salafiyyah that he was referring to, namely Shaykh Rabee'.  This is the same Shaykh Rabee' whose advice to refrain from da'wah Shadeed has not heeded!  And refuge is sought from Allaah.

We ask you - yaa Shadeed - who from the Scholars has preceded you in your statement, "Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."?  Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (d.241H) said,

"You should beware of speaking about an issue in which you are not preceded by a Scholar." Refer to I'laamul-Muwaqqi'een (4/266) of Ibnul-Qayyim.

So we are waiting - yaa Shadeed - for you to provide us with an aayah from the Qur`aan, or an authentic hadeeth, or a statement from the Salafus-Saalih, or the name of the Scholar of Ahlus-Sunnah - past or present - who preceded you in your statement, "Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."  And if you cannot provide one, then it is upon you to openly retract this statement and proclaim that Salafiyyah is the 'aqeedah and the methodology of the Saved-Sect that will be in Paradise!    -- 20-01-2011 @ 5:04 PM

What follows in the thread below (inshaa'Allaah) are a number of statements that emanated from Shadeed Muhammad, may Allah guide him. After reading them and seeing their contradiction to the methodology of the Salaf, the noble Sheikh Muhammad Ramzaan al-Haajiree, may Allah preserve him, responded with detailed notes clarifying the errors and lies present in Shadeed's speech. From the things the Sheikh mentions is that from the speech of Shadeed is that which is in the manner of the Sururis and people of Muwaazanaat (couterbalancing between statements of praise and criticism). He also mentions that Shadeed is a liar in stating that the Prophet and companions overlooked some errors that were in contradiction to the Sunnah for the greater benefit, rather the sheikh mentions that Shadeed makes this statement so the people will overlook his own errors. He also clarifies that Shadeed is from those who is harsh against the people of the Sunnah and instead of defending them, he is with those who those who strike out at them. A translation of the Sheikh's words will be made available shortly.

Questions to Shaykh Falaah Ismaa'eel Concerning Shadeed Muhammad


[Q1]: A person who is a caller in America says, we wonder why the numbers of the hizbees are increasing. It is not because of the large number in their masjids or because of their carpets and rugs, rather it is becuase they treat people nicely, say what you like about Jamaa'atut-Tableegh but they have good character.  If they want you to go out with them for forty days, perhaps they will give you money, and I say with all seriousness, they will even pay for your food or even have one of their wives wash your clothes, they may even marry you (off) for the purpose of you going out with them for da'wah. But if a person comes to the masjid to learn salafiyyah, the first thing that comes from our mouths is 'why don't you have a beard', 'why are your pants in the hellfire', 'why are your pants below your ankle' the person may not even pray but all we care about is that the person doesn't have a lihyah (beard), how do we answer the likes of this statement from one who says that he is salafee?  

[Q2]: Is it permissible for someone to take knowledge from someone who holds the aforementioned position? [The Shaykh interjects asking who makes these claims...the translator mentions that his name is Shadeed Muhammad, Shaykh Falaah also discusses the impermissibility of taking names such as Shadeed (severe) as a forename]

The Shaykh also discusses the new and crazy principles of Yusuf Qaradawi and delivers heart-felt advice concerning preserving this pure, beautiful deen from the many pitfalls surrounding us today.

The Shaykh also highlighted the similitude of Shadeed Muhammad's approach to that of the da'wah of the ikhwaanul-muslimoon and that he (Shadeed) is from them, for he is like them when he is 'shadeed' (severe) upon Ahlus-Sunnah, criticising and fighting then, whilst sahl (easy) with Ahlul-Bid'ah, praising and extoling them (traits of the Ikhwaanee da'wah).

The Shaykh concludes by discussing the dangerous principle that Shadeed Muhammad adopts: 'differing is rahmah for the ummah' (based on a fabricated hadeeth) and how it leads to the acceptance of all the corrupt methodologies under cooperation and ease.

The Scholars That Have Spoken About Shadeed And His Falsehood:

1. Shaykh Rabee'
2. Shaykh 'Ubaid
3. Shaykh Falaah Isma'eel
4. Shaykh Muhammad Ramzaan

Shadeed has wronged the Salafis with his attacks and false principles! And he has wronged himself by embracing the people of falsehood after blowing his whistle and his paradigm shift.

This brother needs to stop with the games and just retract his errors.

More scholars to speak soon on his situation and his Fitnah!!!!!!!!!

Shaykh Falaah Isma'eel On Shadeed

SunnahPublishing.Net    -- 04-03-2011 @ 5:05 AM

Shadeed Muhammad Belittles the Salafees and Praises the Jamaa'atut-Tableegh Unrestrictedly!
This is More Evidence of His Hatred for the Salafees

Shadeed Muhammad said,

And then we we wonder why the numbers amongst the Hizbiyyoon are increasing, not because they have big masaajid and nice carpet in their masjid, that's not why. But because their nice with the people they have good character. You can't say anything else about them, huh?  The Tableeghees have very good character. When they want you to come out and give da'wah with them for forty days, they may even give you money, they even give you money! I am dead serious, they give you money!  They pay for your food, you know.  They might have one of their wives wash your clothes and everything. They might even marry you - all to get you to come out and giving da'wah.  Individual come to the Masjid to learn about Salafiyyah, first thing come out our mouth: You don't have no beard, where your beard at? Why your pants below your ankles, that's all we concerned with.  The individual  probably don't even pray!  Only thing we concerned with, he don't got no beard.  He don't have...his pants not above his ankles.  That's the only thing we concerned with.

Shadeed Muhammad Attacks the Integrity of the Salafees Once More!
He is Tired of Hearing People Say They are on the Manhaj of the Salaf

Shadeed Muhammad said,

We are nowhere near in comparison to them, subhaanallaah! And then we'll say we're on the manhaj of the Salaf. Maashaa` Allaah tabaarakallaah. Wallaahi, I am so tired of hearing that statement, "on the manhaj of the Salaf." We need to put that statement on pause for a second and then evaluate yourself in the manhaj of the Salaf and then really see if you are worthy of making that statement. You ascribe, or you are trying to be on the manhaj of the Salaf, but to say I'm on the manhaj of the Salaf, many of us don't have that privilege to say that.

Once again, Shadeed speaks unrestrictedly and with pure emotion against the Salafees!

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said,

"The group of as-Salafiyyah is the group that is upon the truth and it is obligatory to attribute oneself to it, to work with it and to ascribe oneself to it. And whatever exceeds that from the various groups, then it is obligatory upon you to not consider them from the groups of da'wah, because they are in opposition, except if they affiliate themselves with the group of as-Salafiyyah." Refer to al-Ajwibatul-Mufeedah (p. 239)

Shadeed Muhammad Says Ikhtilaaf (Differing) is a Blessing

Shadeed Muhammad said,

Well, in Islam, um, as it relates to the Islamic legislative rulings regarding, you know, these issues, the woman's dress, or the man's dress for that matter... Um, the Scholars, past and present, they differ on issues of whether the face should be covered or shouldn't be covered... Um, and I think that that differing is actually a blessing because it shows that, you know, that things in Islam, there are room to do things more than one way.

Shadeed Muhammad Denies the Progress of the Salafi Da'wah in America in the Last 10 Years

Shadeed Muhammad said,

The Da'watus-Salafiyyah from 1999 or 2000 to 2010; how much progress have we made? So many people have been put off the da'wah. So many masaajids have been closed. So many people have been chased away from the da'wah. So many people have left Islaam. Wallaahi, so many people have left Islaam. People have been put off the da'wah, because of some wave that came through that everybody was riding, and then when the wave passed through, what about all the people that was put off the da'wah in the process? What are we to do with them? This, in a ten year span, how much progress have we made? Where are the masaajid, where are the Islamic institutions? Where are the younger people who we are sending away to go and learn Islam and come back and be an asset to the community, instead of a liability? This is something for us to ponder and reflect on and the next time we use that term, "I'm on the manhaj of the Salaf," wallaahil-'adheem, we should look at the manhaj of the Salaf first and then do an evaluation before we make that statement. Do an evaluation on yourself before you make that statement.

Here Shadeed does what he does best: Speak without proof or examples, with pure emotion and exaggeration!  Where are all these masaajid that have closed down yaa Shadeed?  Who are the people that were chased away from the da'wah?  What about all the people that came to Salafiyyah between 1999 and 2010 - do you not accept their Salafiyyah?  What about all the Salafee masaajid that were established within the range of 1999-2010 do you not accept their Salafiyyah?

Shadeed Disparages the Salafee Sisters in Comparison to the Non-Salafee Muslim Sisters

Shadeed's biography - which used to appear on his website but has been removed since the Salafee Scholars started to respond to his falsehood - said,

Shadeed Muhammad is noted for promoting Women's Rights and Education in Islam and the world at large.

Shadeed Muhammad said,

And honestly, if you search the internet, you'll find that Muslim women, who may or may not be Salafee; they are busy. They, they have a magazine, they have magazines that have come out. Uhh, I'm forgetting the name of the magazine, one of the sisters in the UK. No, I can't remember. It's a magazine that comes out on a monthly basis...umm...uhh... If you look at the magazine, it looks exactly like, not exactly like, but its structured like an Ebony magazine. That thick, and it has nothing but Islamic infomation about the women. They're busy. While our sisters maashaa` Allaah, you say you're Salafee, Salafeee, Salafee, but where is the propagation of that Salafiyyah? Where is it? I mean, when we invite non-Salafees, or people who do not ascribe to the methodology of the Salaf, to our conferences and lectures, all they get when they come there is that the Salafee sisters can't control their children, they're talking during the lectures... What do they think about the sisters who call themselves Salafee? And she may not wear black, she may not have on a niqaab, but she's coming and she's watching how you conduct yourselves and then she leaves and she says: I have no business in those type of circles and I will never attend another one of those gatherings.

So this self-proclaimed promoter of women's rights attacks the Salafee sisters whilst praising a magazine run by non-Salafiyyaat!  In his usual pattern, he first attacks their ascription to Salafiyyah.  It seems he can never pass up an opportunity to criticize those who ascribe to Salafiyyah!  After that, all he mentions about the Salafiyyaat is that they cannot control their children.  Of course Shadeed has no positive comments for the sisters to ascribe to Salafiyyah.  The only women he is promoting here are the ones that are not Salafee!

Shadeed Refuses to Acknowledge that the Ideal Place of the Muslim Woman is in the Home
This is His Promotion of Women's Rights in Action

Shadeed's biography - which used to appear on his website but has been removed since the Salafee Scholars started to respond to his falsehood - said,

Shadeed Muhammad is noted for promoting Women's Rights and Education in Islam and the world at large.

Shadeed Muhammad said,

Female Interviewer: But it is ideal that she be at home?

ShadeedMuhammad: Well, it depends, it depends. I can't say that across the board that it is ideal for her to be at home. It depends on each individual situation. A woman, some women are stay-at-home moms, and of course, for them that may be ok. Then you have the woman that's, maybe she has two children, she's single. Is it, would it be encouraged for her to stay at home or take care of her children. So it's not as black and white and this is the problem with many people who speak about the Religion of Islam. They make the Religion appear as if it's just black and white and it's not that way. It depends on the individual and the circumstances. And if I was asked a question like that, my response would always be: it depends on the circumstances or it depends on the individual...

So this is another example of Shadeed promoting "women's rights".  Notice that he was asked whether it is ideal for the Muslim woman to remain in the home.  In other words, he is being asked about the ideal and best situation, not the exceptions to the rule or unavoidable necessities!  He refuses to say that this is even the ideal situation and proceeds to list reasons that he finds for the Muslim working outside the home.  He also continues to berate those who "make the Religion appear as if it's just black and white and it's not that way."  One such example of these people is Shaykhul-Islaam 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn Baaz (d.1420H), read his his treatise, [url=]Danger of Women Freely Mixing with Men[/url], especially in their Participation in the Work Arena of Men.  The Shaykh does not mention the exceptions or necessities to the rule, but he steadfastly expounds upon the general prohibition of the woman working outside the home.  Then, later in the same thread, he explains that the woman can work outside her him "if it is a noble and respected work with no free mixing."  Shadeed, however, make no such knowledge based tafseel (elaboration).

Shadeed Muhammad Lies upon Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan and Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee

Shadeed Muhammad said,

The second type of people are the people who go to the extreme with the Scholars.  You find, you find a group of people and they take one particular Scholar and he becomes their Imaam.  They don't see nobody else's statement, except that Scholar.  And Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan - hafidhahullaahu ta'aala - he was asked about someone who says about a particular Scholar, that I don't accept from nobody from him.  And I am going to tell you, I'ma tell you the whole thing.  An individual said to Shaykh Saalih Fawzaan, or was brought that, or it was brought to Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan's attention that an individual said that I only take from Shaykh Rabee'.  I don't take from nobody else but Shaykh Rabee'.  Shaykh Saalih Fawzaan said that is 'aynul-hizbiyyah.  He said that is hizbiyyah.  He said it's hizbiyyah anytime you have ta'assub with any Scholar, even if he is a Salafee Scholar.  He said, "Haadhaa 'aynul-hizbiyyah."  And you can find the article translated in English and Arabic on Madeenah(dot)Com.  Uh...the article was translated and the reference from where that fat...where that statement was taken from.  The reference and everything is there.

So here Shadeed lies upon Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan to the Salafees in the west, claiming that someone asked Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan about a fictional group that follows no one other than Shaykh Rabee' and that Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan responded by saying that this was 'aynul-hizbiyyah.  He then references this answer to the website of his comrades in Madeenah.  We have yet to find such a fatwaa on Madeenah(dot)Com.  Here is the only fatwaa we've found:

Partisanship (Hizbiyyah) To a Scholar or a Da'ee

Shaykh Saalih ibn Fowzaan al-Fowzaan

Reference: Al Ajwibah Al Mufeedah an Asilat Al Manaahij Al Jadeedah: Q67 Beneficial Answers to Questions on New Methodologies."(Q: 67).

Category: Methodology

What is the ruling of an individual who loves a scholar or a Da'ee and says: I love him very much, I do not want to listen to anyone refuting him and I take his word even if it goes against the evidence, because the shaykh has more knowledge of the evidence than us?

This is detestable and blameworthy partisanship and it is not allowed. We love the scholars-and all praise is to Allaah-and we love the Du'aat (callers) for the sake of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic. However if one from amongst them makes an error in an issue, we make clear the truth in that issue with the evidence and this does not decrease our love for the one who is refuted nor does it decrease his status. Imaam Maalik-rahimahullaah- said: "There is no one from amongst us except that he will refute or be refuted, except the companion of this grave." Meaning the Messenger of Allaah SAllaahu Alihee Wasallam.

If we refute some of the people of knowledge and some of the people of virtue, this does not mean that we hate him or dispraise him, we only make clear what is correct and for this reason some of the scholars, when some of their colleagues made an error, said: "So and so is beloved to us, however the truth is more beloved to us than him. " And this is the correct way.

Do not understand from this that to refute some of the scholars in an issue where they have erred in, means lowering them or having hatred for them. Rather the scholars have not ceased refuting each other and at the same time being brothers and having mutual love. It is not allowed for us to take everything that an individual says unquestionably, whether he is correct or in error, because this is partisanship.

The one whose statement is taken absolutely and nothing from it is left, is the Messenger of Allaah Sallaahu Alihee Wasallam. Because he is a Messenger from his Lord and does not speak from his desires. As for other than them (messengers), then sometimes they make errors and sometimes they are correct, even though they may be from the best of the people, they are Mujtahidoon that make mistakes at times and are correct at others. No one is infallible from falling into error except the Messenger of Allaah Sallaahu Alihee Wasallam. It is therefore Waajib that we know this and that we do not remain silent upon error, due to love of an individual. Rather it is upon us that we make the error clear. The Prophet Sallaahu Alihee Wasallam said: "The religion is sincere advice. We said: To whom. He said: To Allaah, His book, His messenger, the leaders of the Muslims and their general people."

So clarification of an error is advice for all, as for concealing it, then this goes against advice.

So where is the mention of Shaykh Rabee'?

Shadeed Muhammad Calls to
Broadening the 'Circle of Salafiyyah'

Shadeed Muhammad said,

Wallahil Atheem we have a no tolerance for sin policy in our communities. No tolerance, zero tolerance for sin in our communities. Individual got his pants to far below his ankles and we ready to oust him, we ready to kick him out of the community. A sister step out her home and she dont have black gloves on, she don't have a black over garment on, she don't have a niqab on, we ready to kick her out the community. She's condemned, I mean we're so extreme and we exaggerate everything. Wallahil Atheem we gotta get away from that or we're gonna continue in the small circle that we call salafiyyah instead of broadening the circle and allowing, you know the muslims, to look at it as not just as a salafi circle but as muslims in general. Some of us have correct aqeedah and some of us don't, that's just how it goes,I mean, everybody is not gonna,we keep having these visions in our minds of everybody in the community is gone be salafi, thats not realistic, name to me one masjid in the dunya where everybody goes to the masjid is a salafi, and I'll stop talking and I'll go to that community and that's where I will remain until Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala calls me back. Every community has people in it that are salafi and have the correct Aqeedah correct Minhaj the correct understanding of Islam and then there are some people who are just you know, they are coming along, alhamdullilah, they coming along. By virtue of the fact that they go to a salafi masjid we should welcome them with open arms, and we shouldn't exclude them and condemn them because they not on your level. Wallahi you just left kuffar last week, you just left kuffar three months ago, you just left kuffar a year ago, and now you here you are talking about somebody ain't salafi or somebody ain't this, have some respect for yourself.

Shadeed Muhammad Belittles the Importance of Correct Manhaj and Criticizes the Focus of the Salafee Du'aat in America

Shadeed Muhammad said,

But there's aspects of the Religion we haven't even talked about. I've been a Muslim for ten years, wa lillaahil-hamd, and there's aspects of Religion, lectures I have never heard, I've never heard about. Has anybody ever heard a lecture on inheritance? Has anybody have ever heard a lecture on meeraath? No. I've been a Muslim for ten years, I have never heard a lecture from a daa'ee in America, and I'm not blaming anyone. I'm just showing you that there's aspects of the Religion we haven't even tapped into yet, because we focus on the same thing. If you're not talking about who's astray, who's on it, who's off it, you don't have no knowledge of the Religion. You don't know manhaj. This is, this is the issues, this where we at right now.

Shadeed Muhammad Criticizes the Salafee Du'aat in America for Conveying the Warnings of the Scholars Against Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee

Shadeed Muhammad said,

Number one look at the maslahah and the mafsadah, look at the benefit and the harm. Weigh the harm and the benefit. And as we know as a general principle: if the harm outweighs the good, then leave it, then leave it. Because what we do sometimes when we warn against somebody, as Shaykh Rabee' uhh some of the brothers from France they came and asked Shaykh Rabee' about Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee. And Shaykh Rabee' said: Is any of Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee's translated into France? They said: No. He said: Do you listen to any of his lectures? They said: No. He said: Does he come there and visit you all and give you talks? They said: No. He said: Then why are you asking about him? laysh shughulu shaaghlukum su`aal, yan'ee su'aal 'an haadhar-rajul? Limaadhaa? Ish Sha`nukum feehi? What do you have to do with him? He doesn't... You don't listen to any of his tapes. He doesn't come there and give you lectures, none of his books are translated in your language. Why are you so concerned about him? Which is something we did here in America. That had it been permissible, it was to the extent, had it been permissible for individuals to draw weapons on each other, we would have done it. Over an individual that none of us have any ta'alluq, any connection to. I never even heard about Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee until his name came up, till he was warned against. I never read any of his books, I never knew who he was. Many of us were the same thing. But after the fitnah hit, you had this individual: What's your position on Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee? Ish shughuluk? What you have to do with Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee? You don't listen to any of his tapes. He has never been to America to give anybody a talk or a lecture and none of his books are translated in our language. What are you worried about him for? Because when you warn against somebody that is not known, you give him a name. You make him famous.

Here Shadeed criticizes the du'aat in who conveyed the warnings of the Scholars against Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee!  At the head of such du'aat were the likes of Abu Uways 'Abdullaah Ahmad, Daawood Adeeb, Abul-Hasan Maalik, Hasan as-Somali and many others.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the One who Calls to Unity Today is Labelled a Mumayyi'

Shadeed Muhammad said,

That no one talks about uniting except a zindeeq, except a hypocrite or someone who is majnun or someone who is insane. Similar to what we do today. Many of the callers who call to the Muslims uniting, the salafis uniting in specific and the Muslims in general to uniting, and the salafis in specific uniting, many of the callers who call to that today are given a different label. What are they called? They're not called Zindeeq, they're called Mumayyi' and all of these other terminologies that they throw around about an individual because he wants to see the Muslims united, and he wants to see the salafis more specifically united. So when he calls the salafis to uniting and to pardon one another and all of the other things that will bring about Ijtimaa' and unification in the religion, he's labeled as a zindeeq; he's labeled as mutasaahil, someone easy going; he dont talk about aqeedah, he don't never warn against the people of bid'ah, he don't ever warn against the people of ahl ahwaa; he's mumayi'; These are the terminologies that we use about our du'aat. Those who sacrificed their lives to call to Allah, while you sit in the back and go to work 8 hours a day and you take all your information from the internet, then you sit back on your couch and you make a hukm on people, and you talking about the callers, those who call to Allah's religion, and you address him as being Mumayyi' cause all he talks about is the Muslims, no different than what Muhammad Abdul-Wahhaab is talking about here. The only person that talks about uniting, and this was 300 and something odd years ago, was a person who was a zindeeq or insane, and today we call him Mumayyi' and mutasaahil, mutahaawin in the affair of the people of innovation he belittles the affairs of the people of innovation; he don't talk about the people of innovation. Every conference and lecture we going to warn against the people of innovation? When will the jahil learn the the difference between what's correct and not correct if we spend all our time talking about the people of innovation? And this is not to belittle advising the ummah about the people of innovation so we can stay away from them, but there is a time for this and a time for that and fee kulli maqaam maqaal. Not at every gathering we goin do that, but those whose perception and their concept of being a daee and calling to Allah consists of every lecture you have to speak about the Khawarij , every lecture you have to speak about the people of innovation, every lecture you have to warn against the people of desires, and the people don't even know Tawheed, and the people don't even know how to make wudu correctly. And the people, and the people and the people (till the end of that). The caller who speaks about unifying the ranks of the Muslims in general and the salafis more specific, hes mumayyi'. Allahu mustaaan wa alayhi tuklaan.

The mumayyi'oon of our time are the people of Ikhwaanul-Muslimoon, the followers of Hasan al-Bannaa and those who attempt to bring those principles of tamyee' into Salafiyyah, such as 'Adnaan 'Ar'oor, Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee, 'Alee al-Halabee and their likes.  Shadeed has somehow taken the speech of Shaykhul-Islaam Muhammad Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhaab about unity and turned it into an attack upon the Salafees who who warn and separate from the people of innovation.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Salafees in America have Ignored Tawheed and Focused on the Principle of ar-Radd 'alal-Mukhaalif and al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel
Another of Shadeed Muhammad's Gross Exaggerations of the Realities!

Shadeed Muhammad said,

But we are creating, we are creating, an environment and a culture within Islam where we are teaching our children, especially the new shahadahs,that the intricate details of Islam, and the people don't even know the fundamentals about the religion. So you'll find a new shahadah today knows all about hizbiyyah and bid'ah and who's astray and who's not astray and jarh wa ta'dil and you know the science of criticizing a narrator and whatever the case may be but he don't know the difference between Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah and Tawheed al Uloohiyyah. He doesn't know the difference between Tawheed Al Uloohiyyah and Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah. But he knows the intricate details of criticizing someone and if this scholar says this and it's a Jarh mufassal and a muqaddim ala you know the criticism that is detailed takes precedence over the praise that is general. And all these other principals which have their place in the religion of al-Islam, however for someone who is new to the religion, someone who is a layman, a lemon from amongst the layman has no business having these intricate details about the religion but doesn't know the fundamentals of what will save him from the hellfire. And we are the ones that are responsible for that, those of us that are seasoned muslims, those of us that have been muslim for a while and understand, we've learned the lingo we got it down pack, we got salafiyyah down, we read a couple of books and then we drag the new shahadah into it, we drag our children into it.

Shadeed Muhammad Belittles the Importance of Knowing the Scholars and Knowing the People of Truth from the People of Falsehood

Shadeed Muhammad said,

But we're more concerned with knowing who the scholars are, knowing who's astray. An individual converted from Christianity to Islam he knows who's astray but he doesn't know that Isa was not the word. These are the things that, and you know we are to blame for that, because we have detailed the religion in such a fashion that it diverts people, and I've heard myself the scholars say this with a lot of these books and most of the times you'll hear this from some of the older scholars, Shaykh Ali Nasir Al Faqihi, Shaykh Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbad, older scholars, individuals who are eighty years old seventy eight, seventy nine, eighty years old. Who some of the scholars we quote they were their teachers. Shaykh Muhsin, Rahimuhallah taala, hafithahullah ta'ala, taught ShaykhRabee'. Shaykh Ali Nasir Al-Faqihi taught Shaykh Rabee', taught Shaykh Ubaid, taught Shaykh Fulan and Fulan and any other scholars that we can think of, these were their teachers. And they have made statements like, you know the scholars they're putting these books out these works out which are very good, however they are too detailed. And in the process of the students getting involved in those details they've missed out on the fundamental principles of the religion.

Shadeed Muhammad Criticizes the Salafees for Admonishing and Advising Others

Shadeed Muhammad said,

The extent of your Salafiyyah is not determined by how harsh you are with people. It's determined by your level of 'ibaadah, your level of worship and your level of closeness to Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that you can admonish this one and advise this one and give naseehah to that one. That doesn't raise your...that doesn't increase you in your Salafiyyah in the eyesight of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa, maybe in front of the brothers who, you know, is part of your immediate circle. But to Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa it means absolutely nothing. What is going to bring you closer to Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa is your worship of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa and your desire to see the slaves of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa excel.

Shadeed Muhammad's Blanket Condemnation of Those Whose Affairs Have Been Brought to the Scholars

Shadeed Muhammad said,

The Scholars have told us on a number of occasions: Stop being harsh with people, make things easy on the people, stop making Salafiyyah like a hizb, like a, like a party or a sect. Stop making Salafiyyah so difficult for the people to digest. Speak to the people in a language that they understand. Make things easy and don't make them difficult for the people. Stop the discord, be brothers. The Scholars, they give us all this advice. And then we'll say, Yeah, maashaa` Allaah, Shaykh Rabee' gave a nice lecture, or Shaykh Saalih Fawzaan gave a nice lecture, or the Muftee gave nice lecture. Where, I myself translated the lecture for the Muftee, the Grand Muftee of Saudi Arabia today, Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez aalush-Shaykh where he was speaking directly to the Imaams and the students of knowledge here in America. Telling them to work with one another, telling them to be gentle with one another, telling them to listen to one another, telling them to mutually obey one another, and you'll still find discord amongst the people. You'll find the Scholars telling us to be easy with the people. You can say the wrong thing and everything that you worked so hard for can be thrown out the window because an individual don't like you. If he don't like you, he can say that you said this on a lecture and now you're no longer considered to be Salafee. Something that simple. Since when has it been that easy to put a person off the Deen? Put a person off the, you know, off the manhaj. The Scholars have given us advice on a number of occasions but how much of it do we practice?

Another example of Shadeed's blanket condemnation of the Salafees of expose the people of falsehood!  So were the criticisms of Abu Muslimah, Abu Usaamah, Bilaal Philips and others unjustified?  Were they just because someone from amongst the Salafees didn't like them?

Shadeed Muhammad Speaks Unrestrictedly About the Broadness of Islaam

Shadeed Muhammad said,

However, there's an exception to the rule. However, we come into Islam with our narrow vision, our subjective outlook on everything. And we make everything black and white, it's either black or white. Wallaahil-'Adheem, if you go through your life as a Muslim look at everything as black and white, wallaahi you deprive yourself of understanding the broadness of Islaam. Islam is way broad than that, way more broad than that. However, that's due to your narrow outlook. And as a result of that, you end up making your like so miserable and you make everybody else's like miserable because of your lack of understanding and your subjective views and outlook on everything.

Click here to listen to the audio


So Shadeed's manhaj is twofold:

1. Condemn everything that occurs from the Salafees with regards to manhaj, al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel from the Scholars, admonishment and advice against the people of innovation.

2. Encourage multiplicity and water down Islaam through talk of broadness, ikhtilaaf is a blessing etc...

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Salafees Sit and Talk About Issues of Manhaj While Their Kids are Going Astray

Shadeed Muhammad said,

And to just sit here and to see the communities just like you know, not even trying to provide an alternative. Not even to institute some incentives in our communities to help combat that stuff. But we'll sit around on the internet talking about who's on it, who's astray wallaahil-'adheem. Who you got problems with or whatever the case may be wallaahil-'adheem. Wallaahi these are issues that are not going to stop your children from going astray.

Perhaps if the Salafees were to remain silent about who's off it and who's on it, Shadeed feels he would then be free to lead their kids astray with talk the Companions differing in 'aqeedah, ikhtilaaf being a blessing etc...

Shadeed Muhammad Criticizes the Salafee Students of Knowledge - Claiming They Ascribe to Salafiyyah While Not Having Memorized a Single Juz` of Qur`aan

Shadeed Muhammad said,

But we'll still say: Salafee. Wallaahi, I would be very cautious of allowing that to come out of my mouth considering, you know, my actions, considering my deeds. And that's not to say that an individual can't ascribe to the methodology of the Salaf, but not in the arrogant way that you find many of the brothers and sisters doing. You have a brother, his name is Fulaan Ibn Fulaan as-Salafee, Fulaan Ibn Fulaan Fulaan as-Salafee. And they say that with pride. And then you have people who don't ascribe to Salafiyyah who may be more inclined to worship of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa. And they're looking at us as we parade around as Salafees, they're looking at us and they're just making mockery of us. Even as it relates to being educated about the Deen, even as it relates to knowing the Qur`aan. We find many students of knowledge, many people who ascribe to the methodology of the Salaf, manhaj of the Salaf, ignorant of the Book of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa, ignorant of the Book of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa. That's the least thing you should have as a Salafee, is something memorized, committed to memory from the Book of Allaahu subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa. But we'll know narrations about this and Imaam Ahmad said this and about that and you haven't even completed the first juz`, the 30th juz` of the Qur`aan, haven't completed the 30th juz` of the Qur`aan. Haven't completed the 30th juz` of the Qur`aan. Wallaahi, if we was in a non-Salafee masjid, wallaahi you can find the people, the least thing that they have is the Book of Allaah. The least thing that they have is the Book of Allaah. They say yeah, tafaddal, lead the Salaat. Listen to the individual's recitation, but these are the things that, you know, I'm pinpointing out, not as a criticism, but something that we need just as a reminder for us to look at.

So once again, he begins by attacking the ascription to Salafiyyah; it is as if Shadeed cannot live a comfortable life if people are ascribing to Salafiyyah.  Secondly, he praises the people of innovation over the Salafees with nothing more than exaggerations and turning around the realities.  How immature!

Shadeed Muhammad Arrogantly Claims he Studied Everything There is to Know About Hadeeth

Shadeed Muhammad said,

I spent four years in the college of hadeeth, studying everything that there is to know about hadeeth. The origin of hadeeth, the history of hadeeth, the Scholars of hadeeth, the students of the Scholars of hadeeth, uh when they was born, when they died and then, you know, the compilations of hadeeth and when it started and when it stopped. And enything that you can think of, Jarh wat-Ta'deel, how to criticize a narrator and authenticate a hadeeth; everything that there is to know about the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). In that four year period, we studied it.

So Imaam Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee (d.1420H) was clearly a true Scholar of Hadeeth in our times, yet he still said about himself at age 80 that he was a student of knowledge.  Look at the humility of a true Scholar, compared the reckless arrogance of Shadeed!

Shadeed Claims that the Legislation of al-Islam did not Come to Rid us of Sin Altogether, But it Came to Make Takhfeef of of the Amount of Sins that People Commit.

Shadeed Muhammad said,

Also another hadeeth that came to my mind is the hadeeth of 'Abdullaah, one of the Companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). The hadeeth is collected in Saheehul-Bukhaaree, uh, in the Chapter of Eemaan, where there was one of the Companions who used to drink, drink alcohol, intoxicants. And one day he was drunk. And the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) used to laugh at his jokes or whatever. The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) was down to earth, as that was another chapter that I mentioned in the book, is that it is okay to be down to earth. 'Cause the Prophet (sallallaahi 'alayhi wa sallam) was not, you know, overzealous with his religiosity like many of us. We have this unspoken rule in our communities of zero tolerance for sin. And that mentality, it goes against the Sharee'ah, the legislation of al-Islam. The legislation did not come to rid us of sin altogether. However, it came to make takhfeef, it came to lessen the sins, or the amount of sins that people commit and to refer people back to their Lord and to keep the sins, you know, between them and their Lord and not to kust totally eradicate our communities of sin as that is something that is not realistic and not pragmatic at all.

In the time of the Prophet (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) there was sin and the proper Sharee'ah stance was taken towards sin where admonishment and corrective punishment was required by law.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims that the Prophet and the Companions Knowingly Overlooked Oppositions to the Sunnah to 'Look at the Bigger Picture'

Shadeed Muhammad said,

And we see, as we mentioned, from the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and from the Sahaabah, that sometimes they let things slide, knowing that it was in opposition to the Sunnah.  They let it slide, looking at the bigger picture.

Click here to listen to the audio


So according to Shadeed, even the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and the Companions overlooked oppositions to the Sunnah for the sake of what Shadeed terms, 'the bigger picture.'  Or so says the Bannaawee manhaj of Shadeed Muhammad - a call to unity upon falsehood and excusing errors and oppositions to the truth!

Shadeed Muhammad Denies a Muslim Audience Their Islaam

Shadeed Muhammad said,

I hear brothers and sisters say all the time, 'Man, I been Muslim since the 70's,' or 'I been Muslim since the early 80's,' or 'Mashaa Allah, I been Muslim for 20 years.' I don't care how long you been Muslim; you're still one foot away from jaahiliyyah, one foot from kufr, one decision from kufr! 'How many years' shouldn't mean anything! Because it could have been 20 years as a Muslim ten of it was spent upon something that was falsehood, five of it was spent trying to just acclimate yourself to the real Islam, and then really you only been Muslim for five years honestly speaking! You only been a practicing Muslim for five years! And the Salaf they said that, "I struggle with myself for 40 years so that I could relax for 40 years!" Wallaahi brothers and sisters, allow that statement to marinate in your heart.

Click here to listen to the audio


Maashaa` Allaah, tabaarakallaah!  So now, a man who has only been upon Salafiyyah for a few years tells a Muslim audience they have not really been Muslim for as long as they believe!  Why don't we apply the same principle to you - yaa Shadeed!  How long have you truly been Salafee?  All this time you have been attacking the Salafees and propounding principles of al-ma`dhirah wat-ta'aawun (i.e. the principle of Hasan al-Bannaa: we will co-operate upon that which we agree upon and excuse each other for whatever we disagree about) in your numerous statements!  And Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree fears that you are an Ikhwaanee sent to infiltrate and corrupt the Salafees!  So how long have you truly been upon Salafiyyah - using your own principle propounded in the statement above?

Shadeed Muhammad Claims that the Thawb is from the Clothes of Shuhrah (Showing Off) in the West

Shadeed Muhammad said,

In America, for you to say that someone can't wear pants, then how is he supposed to get a job?  How do you take a fatwaa like that and apply it to the west when that is the common dress of the people?  And as some of the mashaayikh mention here, that wearing a thawb in America could be considered shuhrah, could be considered showing off and drawing attention to yourself and that's exactly what it does.  I'm not saying that during Islamic functions and going to Jumu'ah and things like that that we shouldn't have on Islamic attire, but you have some brothers who will go to the extreme that they won't take a particular job because they can't wear a thawb at the job.

In his venture to attack everything that the Salafees do, Shadeed cannot even leave alone the way they dress.  More on this to follow...

Shadeed Muhammad's Unrestricted Attack upon the Sisters Who Wear Niqaab

Shadeed Muhammad said,

Similarly with the sisters wearing the niqaab. The same issue, the same thing applies. That now you start to question a sisters 'aqeedah because she doesn't wear niqaab, or you know, you have, we have this stigma amongst the sisters that if there's a group of sisters and they don't wear niqaab, then they're quote-unquote, "off the hook." They the off the hook sisters 'cause they don't wear niqaab. Maashaa` Allaah tabaarakallaah, who said that? And this stuff spreads around in our communities and then it causes so much damage in our communities that by the time it gets back to our Scholars and they correct it, so much damage has been done that his correction of the issue doesn't even matter. It's irrelevant, because so many people have been rubbed the wrong way. So many people have been chased away from Islam, chased away from the masaajid that by the time mashaayikh get a hold of it and address it and deal with it, so many people have been chased away that really it doesn't matter anymore.

So even the Niqaabee sisters are not safe from Shadeed's accusations of extremism...

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Sunnah is Broad

Shadeed Muhammad said,

One of the Sahaabah and one of taabi'een they differed on an issue, but there wasn't any enmity and hatred amongst them as it is amongst us. The Sunnah is broad and sometimes we have to have hikmah in how we deal with one another, as this is the thing that brings about the harmony and the unification between the Muslims.  And when we understand that, precedence is given to the usool of our deen and that is from them, from the usool of our deen, from the fundamental principles of our deen is al-ijtimaa', unification of the Muslims in general and the Salafees in more specific, the people that are upon the truth.

Here it is laid bare - O Sunnee - Shadeed Muhammad copies a page out of Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee's book!  Abul-Hasan's erroneous principle was the manhaj waasi' (a broad manhaj to accomadate the people of innovation).  Shadeed claims the Sunnah is broad and then talks of unity "of the Muslims in general and the Salafees in more specific."

Subhaan Allaah!

These attacks coming from a man who is a paid employee (or Imam) at a Masjid that advertises Movies and actually sells tickets for it.

We are waiting for to refute these errors insha Allah as they have recently informed us that they have lifted the flag of Ar-Radd Ala Al-Mukhaalif.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Salafees
In the West are Happy to See Someone Go Astray

Shadeed Muhammad said,

[Quoting the aayah] "There has come to you a Messenger from yourselves, it grieves him that you should fall into difficulty." Where is that characteristic amongst us?  We happy when somebody goes astray.  They say: See, I told you wasn't even Salafee anyway.  We happy when we see somebody go astray.

Here Shadeed continues to ascribe every evil characteristic he can to the Salafees in the west.  Here he claims the Salafees in the west are happy when they see someone go astray. This is an evil slander.

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Salafees
Hinder the People from Coming to the Truth

Shadeed Muhammad said,

An individual could have left hizbiyyah twenty years ago, in our eyes he's still...he's still hizbee, still not Salafee.  And then we throw statements around like: uh...the Salaf used to watch an individual for seven years after he...[chuckles]... ittaqillaah yaa 'Abdullaah.  'Abdullaah, fear Allaah subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa.  And stop oppressing the people.  Allow the people to come to the haqq and stop acting as a hindrance for them coming to the truth.

Click here to listen to the audio


If a caller to innovation were to make a tawbah (repentance) from his innovation, the Salaf used to watch him for a number of years to see if he was sincere in his tawbah.  Shadeed makes a mockery of this and claims the Salafees in the west are somehow hindering people from coming to the truth!

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Communities Will not be Rectified by Lectures of Aayaat and Ahaadeeth

Shadeed Muhammad said,

However, dissemination of the knowledge is not gonna be always didactic lectures, it's not gonna always be didactic lectures where you sittin' in front of a group of people, you quoting ayat, hadeeth, ayat, hadeeth, ayat hadeeth and then you get up.  Sallallaahu 'alaa nabiyyinaa Muhammad and...and all is well.  That's not how were are going to rectify our communities.

Click here to listen to the audio


Indeed, the gatherings of the Salaf, such as Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (d.241H) and others were gatherings of Qur`aan and hadeeth!  As Imaam Maalik said, "The latter part of this Ummah will not be rectified, except by that which rectified its first part."

Shadeed Muhammad Claims the Salafees Have Restricted Manhaj to the Warning Against People and Boycotting

But we restrict manhaj to warning against people, boycotting, but this from our manhaj also.  To ascertain the haqq, to ascertain the truth of the matter before you go and spread it.

It is no surpirse that a man who has not fully understood the manhaj of the Salaf would think that the Salafees restrict manhaj to just warning against people and boycotting.

Ya Shadeed! Why The Deception And Trickery?

When Shadeed Muhammad travelled to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia do you know who his replacement was at UMM for the Friday sermon?
While they were waiting for their Imam to return I am sure that the community trusted their Imam to leave them with a suitable replacement.

Marc Manley At UMM

The funny thing about it is that someone deleted the link, attempting to conceal what was actually taking place at UMM as it does not matter what transpires at UMM as long as it does not appear on the net.

The person that gave the Khutbah, and addressed Shadeed's community, was an individual known as Marc Manley. I visited his Blog to ascertain exactly what this man is upon and his page speaks louder than words.

This individual has links to Hamzah Yusef, Zaid Shakir, and a whole bunch of other Sufis.

Is Shadeed Muhammads understanding similar to that of Yasir Qadhi? Has his salary and thirst for a position caused him to lose his mind?

So I guess Shadeed Muhammad expects the people of the Sunnah to attend UMM so that they can listen to these types of people when he is absent and maybe even present, as Marc Manley is scheduled to deliver another sermon according to events calander on his blog.

      4/8/2011 - Love & Islam
     4/16/2011 - Our Legacy and Future Destiny
     4/18/2011 - Universal Message of the Prophets
     4/29/2011 - UPenn MSA
       5/6/2011 - Drexel MSA
     5/20/2011 - Quba Institute + reading circle [6pm]
     5/27/2011 - UMM
     6/24/2011 - Quba Institute + reading circle [6pm]

These are the type of people UMM work with and trust. I wonder will we hear a clarification from their Imam who is always quick to defend himself but will he be as quick to clarify the truth in this matter and explain the errors of the Sufiyyah.

In closing, it is almost laughable that Shadeed is trying to mask the reality of UMM by revamping the website with links to and his own website. What should we expect next? Sufiyyah Salafiyyah!

Allah's aid and protection is sought.

al-'Allaamah 'Ubayd Ibn 'Abdullaah al-Jaabiree
Reiterates His Warning Against Shadeed Muhammad

[Q]: The praise is for Allaah, Lord of the worlds.  And may the peace and salutations of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his Family and his Companions.  To proceed:

So this is a question directed at our noble Shaykh, 'Ubayd Ibn 'Abdullaah Ibn Sulaymaan al-Jaabiree - hafidhahullaahu ta'aalaa.  Noble Shaykh, do you have any points against the brother, Shadeed Muhammad al-Amreekee.  So if you have points, then why do you not clarify them, or do you hold that knowledge can be taken from him?

[A]: With the Name of Allaah and the praise is for Allaah.  And may the peace and salutations of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his Family and his all those who accompany him.  To proceed:

So how many are the points that have been confirmed with us by way of those who are trustworthy and possess integrity against the brother Shadeed Muhammad al-Amreekee!  And they (i.e. the points) prove that the man is not fit to have knowledge taken from him.  Rather, it is obligatory to be cautious of him.  And from these many points, which prove the ignorance of the man and the corruption of his manhaj, is his statement, "Salafiyyah is not a card that's gonna get you into Jannah."

So this statement is disbelief (kufr).  Since, Salafiyyah is the pure Religion of Allaah.  It is Tawheed.  It is the unblemished Sharee'ah, with which Allaah sent all of the Prophets and Messengers.  It is the Religion of the first of them, Nooh, to the last of them, Muhammad ('alayhimus-salaatu was-salaam).  And it has two foundations:

The first affair (i.e. foundation): is the call to worship Allaah alone to encourage others upon that and to form allegiance with others who call to this and to perform takfeer of those who abandon it.

And the second [foundation]: is to warn against Shirk in the worship of Allaah and to be harsh in that and to have enmity due to that and to perform takfeer of those who commit Shirk.

And these two foundations are the scales of justice in worship, social intercourse and in how the person deals with others.

And the one who scorns the affair of Salafiyyah and does not give importance to it in his da'wah and he does not make it the foundation of his da'wah, then this individual is either an ignoramous (jaahil) or a person who is misguided and misguiding others.  And Shadeed is from the second category, a person who is misguided and misguiding others.  It is obligatory to be cautious of him.  And he must not be allowed the opportunity - and we advise Ahlus-Sunnah in America and other than it, to not allow him an opportunity to deliver lessons and lectures and talks in their mosques due to the corruption in his manhaj and his ignorance concerning the da'wah to Allaah.  Rather, he is bold in misguidance and deviation.  And I do not hold that I should pre-occupy my time with refuting him, since he is not deserving of that, according to my view.  And I only suffice with warning against him and his corrupt manhaj.  So convey the salaam from me to your brothers and convey this statement concerning the man and I advise them to be cautious of him.  And may the peace and salutations of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his Family and his all those who accompany him.

And this was dicated by 'Ubayd Ibn 'Abdullaah Ibn Sulaymaan al-Jaabiree, after the Maghrib of Friday, the 27th of Jumaada ath-Thaanee, in the year 1432H, which corresponds to the 20th of May, in the year 2011C.E.  And the success is with Allaah.
