Islaam and the Muslims Are Not Ruined, Except By the Khawaarij and Those Similar to Them…by Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi
In The Name of Allaah, The Most merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] said:
By Allaah! Islaam and the Muslims are not ruined except by these type of [people] amongst the people of bidah and misguidance-the khawaarij and those similar to them, and those who are worse such as the Rawaafid.
The rawaafid are worse than the khawaarij, and Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon (Ref1) ally with them and say: “They [rawaafid] are our brothers; the differing between us and them is like the differing between [Imaam] Maalik and [Imaam] Shaafi’ee- Meaning: The differing between us [i.e. Ikhwaan Muslimoon] and them [i.e. rawaafid Shiites] is based on ijtihaad. If Imaam [Maalik] and [Imaam] Shafee’ee differ in [some] affairs, they are all rewarded. And if we [ikhwaan al-muslimoon] differ with the rawaafid shiites, then us and them are rewarded.
O deceivers! [i.e. Ikhwaanis] The rawaafid revile the Sahaabah and declare them disbelievers; they revile the wives of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam]; they say that the Qur’aan is distorted; they have shir’kiyyaat [i.e. beliefs, views and acts of major polytheism] and they deify the leaders of the Prophet’s family. So does all of this not harm them [i.e. harm their claim to Islaam]? Is this not irjaa?! [i.e. O Ikhwaanis! Is this alliance of yours with the rawaafid and your claim that the differing between you and them is like the differing between Imaams Maalik and Shaafi’ee not Ir’jaa?!(Ref 2)]
