The 2nd part of "Lofty Verdicts Regarding the Calls of Various Methodologies" by the ?Allaamah, the Muhaddith, the Faqeeh, Shaykh Ahmad bin Yahyaa an-Najmee is now up an available at the following link:
Some of the questions from part 1 & 2 include:
Q1: What is the intent by the word minhaj?
Q2: What is Salafiyyah and who is their leader?
Q3: Is there such a thing as an old Salafiyyah and a new Salafiyyah or is it just one Salafiyyah?
Q4: While giving admonishment (i.e. warning against someone), is counterbalancing (muwaazanah) and drawing parallels between good deeds and bad deeds from the minhaj (methodology) of the Salaf or is it not?
Q5: What is your opinion regarding those who say it is not appropriate for the scholars to refute others in this time because it strengthens the might and valor of the enemy and it splits the ranks?
Q6: Do we find in the Book and the Sunnah openly revolting and speaking out against the rulers from the minbar (pulpit)?
Q7: Some of the students of knowledge turn their attention towards criticizing a group of du?aat (callers to Allaah) who have made errors in minhaj (methodology). So is this to be considered as gheebah (backbiting) or not?
And from part 2:
Q8: There are some youth who make their focus the Salafee youth from amongst the students of Shaykh Rabee? bin Haadee al-Madkhalee and Shaykh Saalih bin Sa?d as-Suhaymee claiming that the Salafee youth are zallifeen (those who have slipped making mistakes) and they (i.e. the Salafee youth) are not Salafiyeen. So what is their verdict in reference to the legislation?
Q9: Some of the youth object to the one who says: I am Salafee. So what is your advice to one like this?
Q10: Do the Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen enter different Islaamic sects into their organization such as the Raafidah (Shee?ah), the Soofis, and the Mu?tazilah or is it purely and solely a Sunni organization?
Q11: Is the methodology of the Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen one in giving Da?wah (calling) to Allaah or does it differ from country to country?
Q12: Is entering into voting in the Parliament a legislated means of aiding the religion or is it not?
Q13: What is your esteemed opinion regarding the one who says: It is now obligatory on us to rush and direct our efforts towards establishing a rightly guided Khilaafah. Is this inclination correct or is it incorrect?
Q14: Many of the youth listen to the tapes of Salmaan al-?Awdah, Safar al-Hawaalee, Muhammad Sa?eed al-Qahtaanee, and ?Aaid al-Qarnee. So do you advise these youths that they should refrain from and stop listening to these tapes?
Q15: With regards to the retractions of Shaykh ?Aaid, is it only these seventeen errors or has he retracted other than them?
Q16: What is your advice to the beginner student of knowledge? And what are the Salafee books and tapes that you would direct him towards?
Q17: Who are the people of ad-Da?watus Salafiyyah in our country Saudi Arabia those who it is appropriate to seek knowledge on their hands?
Q18: O Shaykh, we hope that you can name for us some of the books of Salafiyyah that are appropriate for the Salafee youth to put in his personal library?
Q19: Esteemed Shaykh Ahmad, what is your opinion regarding the one who says: I do not know of Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee and Shaykh Rabee?. I do not know them to be scholars, and I do not take any knowledge from them. I do not know except ?Abdul ?Azeez bin Baaz. What is your advice to him?
We ask Allaah to allow the Muslims to benefit from it. Again the link is
For those also waiting for our book, it should be out this upcoming week, more details will be available on our website soon, insha'Allaah.
