(Notice that none of the students that Shaykh Muqbil mentioned in his Wasiyyah defend Abul Hasan.)
11/9/02 4th Rajab 1423 This evening i saw sheikh al Banna in the Haram and he told me abul Hasan came to visit him last wednesday but the sheikh told him to take his errors back and excuse himself from Sheikh Rabee' and those he spoke against unjustly when he was the one who was supposed to take his errors back.
Sheikh Muhammad Abdulwahhab al Banna Hafidhahullaah said that he caught Abul Hasan being dishonest, not telling the truth in the course of his discussion with him. That he does not seek to rectify the matters but splitting. This can be seen from his actions. Sheikh al Banna said to him why did you not initially take your errors back when the Yemeni mashayakh advised you, then he sat with the nashayakh from Madinah and still he says i only took 2 mistakes back not the many he mentioned to the scholars in Madinah.
I saw Sheikh Zayd al Madkhalee in Jeezan over the weekend last and he said those that say that hadeeth ahaad do not constitute knowledge are misguided. i,e Abul Hasan al Ma'rabi. You must read Sheikh Rabee's detailed jarh of this inshaallaah you will benefit.
Sheikh Muhammad al Madhkhalee has also refuted Abul Hasan last saturday by showing how he lied about the position of sheikh al Islaam ibn Taymiyyah regarding those that make the takfeer and tafseeq of the companions are kuffar. Firstly Abul Hasan does not include those that make tafseeq of the companions as being kuffar as sheikh Islaam ibn Taymiyyah did but Abul Hasan also says that one must even after that establish the hujjah before takfeer is made and he said his statement is the same as sheikh al Islaam ibn Taymiyyah. This is not true since nowhere does Sheikh al Islaam ibn Taymiyyah say hujjah must first be applied and sheikh Islaam added the tafseeq of the companion enough to take one out of the deen which Abul Hasan did not include in his book seraaj al Wahhaaj.
This shows we must becareful not to listen to Abul Hasan for this is clear talbees as the scholars mentioned to us. Stick with the elder scholars and the Jarh Mufassal. You must.
Abdulqaadir is making a big mistake in defending Abul Hasan. He sat with sheikh Rabee' in his house got a letter for Islaah then he makes fasad by promoting Abul Hasan's refutation of Sheikh Rabee' and the Usool of Ahlu Sunnah. But truth will prevail over falsehood.
