In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

On the other side of those who make Takfeer based on falsehood, there are a people who do not know the creed of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa’ah as it is obligated; or they know some of it and are ignorant of some of it.  They conceal what they know of it and do not clarify it for the people. They neither forbid innovations (which is) what is in opposition to the Book and the Sunnah nor do they rebuke Ahlul Bidah and punish them; rather perhaps they would rebuke a statement in the Sunnah and a fundamental of the religion completely and would not differentiate between what Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah say and what Ahlul Bidah Wal Furqah (The people of innovation and splitting) say; or they would affirm all their differing ways, just as the scholars would affirm the different opinions in places where Ijtihaad is permitted [i.e. due to the ignorance of these people and deliberately hiding the truth, they would affirm the correct path of Ahlus Sunnah and the corrupt path of ahlul bidah, whilst seeking to falsely imitate the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah in their affirmation of the different opinions in issues of permissible Ijtihaad].

This path has overwhelmed many of the Murji’ah; some of the jurists; those who pursue the path of asceticism and the philosophers, just as it has overwhelmed first and foremost many amongst the people of desires and rhetoric.  And both these paths (i.e. the path traversed by those who do not clarify the haqq and those who seek to condone all the divergent paths of deviation) are deviated paths outside the Book and the Sunnah. Rather what is obligatory is to clarify that which Allaah sent His Messengers with and (revealed) in His Books–propagating that which the Messengers brought from Allaah and fulfilling the covenant which Allaah took from the scholars.

Therefore, it is obligatory to know that which the Messengers brought–having belief in it, propagating it, calling to it and striving upon it. And to weigh up all that which the people embark upon- [with regards to statements, actions, religious fundamentals, subsidiary (issues) related to the apparent actions of the Limbs and affairs related to actions of the heart]- under the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger; and neither following desires (through) customs, a school of law, a religious order, a leader or a predecessor; nor following conjecture through a weak hadeeth or corrupt Qiyaas, regardless whether it a Qiyaas that offers some degree of certainty or not; or blindly following someone regarding whom it is not obligated to follow his statement and action, for indeed Allaah—in His Book- has censured those who follow conjecture and that which their souls desire, whilst they abandon the guidance that came to them from their Lord. [Majmoo Al-Fataawaa 12/467-468]

 

[End of quote: Majmoo Al-Fataawaa 12/467-468]

Reader: The hizbiyyoon either seek to confound truth with falsehood or hide the truth. You will find them utilising every doubt to hide the calamities of Abu Usaamah and Greenlane, however  these sneaky deceivers—those who spread their doubts in secret but are too cowardly to approach the Salafiyoon and present their knowledge based arguments–are bankrupt of proofs, so they seek to entice others with general statements of Shaikh Abdul Muhsin (may Allaah preserve him), whilst deliberately turning a blind eye to the detailed proofs against their hizbi figureheads and callers to misguidance, such as the likes of Abu Usaamah and others.

Therefore, the salafi brothers at Masjid Al-Fuqaan should be warned against these deceivers.  Finally, we remind these deceivers that they will never be successful in spreading hizbi views because the Maraakiz of Salafiyyah are well aware of their plots  and false insinuations.  Neither will they be able to  confound truth with falsehood nor hide the truth, whilst the Salafi Maraakiz are aware of their plots, regardless of whether some of them speak to Shaikh Abdul Muhsin and others in person or not.
