In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Ustaadh Abu Iyaad (may Allaah preserve him) states:
Thus, it is from the height of deception and injustice, that rather than quote from Salafi authorities, Yasir Qadhi follows Jewish, Christian Orientalists in their perception of Salafiyyah, throwing in the Kharijites, Ikhwanis, takfiris and others alongside them to help arrive at the misguided conclusion that Salafiyyah is a fallible human trend because there are a “spectrum of conflicting views” within it. [End of Quote] [see article @ www.salafis.com titled: Refuting Yasir Qadhi and the orientalists. Ibn-taymiyyah on salafiyyah-being-the-prophetic way]
Abu Eesa (Niamatullaah)
So we say: Thus it is from the height of deception and injustice, that rather than distinguish the Salafi authorities from the people of Misguidance, Abu Eesa follows the satanic path of the Ikhwaanees, throwing in the figureheads of the grave worshippers as great personalities and scholars of Islaam alongside the Imaams of Tawheed and Sunnah, such as the likes of Imaam Abdul-Azeez Bin Baaz, Allaamah Ahmad Shaakir and Imaam Albaani. On Monday, August 1, 2005 Abu Eesa wrote: ‘’In the view of recent deaths and the like, wouldn’t it be nice if we remembered a few of the (many) major scholars that we’ve lost in the last few centuries? Here are a few rare pictures to give you some faces to all the names you’ve heard so much of.’’ [Included amongst Abu Eesa’s major scholars were the likes of Shaikh Abdul Fattaah Abu Ghuddah and this statement of his is still present in his blog]
Who is Shaikh Abdul Fattaah Abu Ghuddah?
Imaam Albaani (rahimahullaah) said: He is Shaikh Abdul-Fattaah Abu Ghuddah Al-Hanafi Al-Halabi; well known for his severe enmity towards the People of Sunnah and Hadeeth, especially in his land Halab, when he used to deliver the khut’bah on the Minbar of his Masjid on the Day of Juma’ah and utilized it for abuse against the people of Tawheed who were well-known as the Salafiyyeen, particularly in his land, and the Saudi people of Tawheed and other than them whom he nicknamed Al-Wahhaabiyyah in general. He proclaimed his severe enmity towards them and clearly declared them misguided with his speech: ‘’Indeed, appealing for aid and assistance through the dead besides Allaah (The Most High) and seeking deliverance and rescue of them is permissible, and it is not shirk. And whoever claims that it is shirk or kufr is a kaafir…
We seek Allaah’s protection from falsehood and its people. Aameen. This one of the scholars of misguidance Abu Eesa declares as one of the great scholars of the Ummah alongside Imaam Bin Baaz, Imaam Albaanee and Al-Allaamah Ahmad Shaakir (rahimahumullaah).
