Al-Allaamah Ahmad Bin Yahyah An-Najmi (rahimahullaah) the former Mufti of the Jaazaan (Saudi Arabia) was asked about

“O Shaykh Ahmad we have with us in America a man called abu usaamah who is considered to be from the Du’aat, he aids and supports abul hasan [i.e. Al-Maribi (The Ikhwaani Innovator)] and he calls some noble salafi brothers gulaat (extremists), muqallidah (blind followers),and muhqiboon (the people whose religion is the religion of the one they blindly follow), so what is the legislated position from this man and how should we deal with him?”

The Shaikh (rahimahullaah) answered:

“Your position from him is the same as your position from the people of innovation.

Turn away from him and abandon him.”

A Reminder To Those who Claim Salafiyyah, whilst they invite Abu Usaamah to their centres

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah): ”Whoever sits with a person of innovation has not been given wisdom.”

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said: He (i.e. the one who sits with a person of bidah) is deprived of wisdom, and wisdom is understanding of the Religion of Allaah.  The one who sits with ahlul bidah is deprived of understanding of the Religion as punishment for him.[Source: It-haaful Qaaree Bitta’liqaat Alaa Sharh As-Sunnah Lil Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) by Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) (page: 318, Vol: 2)]
