The Haal of Abdul Malik Ar-Ramadaani! [Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari Clarifies]
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Abdul Malik says: I attend (i.e. the lessons or sittings) of Shaikh Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbaad, Abdur-Razzaaq Al-Badr and Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhayli, and I suffice with this. Is it that to be a Salafi I must be present (in the lessons, sittings) of Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiri, Muhammad Ibn Haadi and Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari?
*Who made this restriction that one must attend the [lessons (or) sittings)] of this one and not the lessons (or sittings) of that one? Who said to Abdul Malik that Salafiyyah is restricted to Abdur-Razzaaq, Shaikh Abdul Muhsin and Sulaymaan? Who said that the Mashaayikh of the Sunnah have warned against those ones-meaning you should not attend (the lessons, sittings) of this one and that one?
These are statements of the people of desires and the people of Takhdheel. If you want to know the people of Takhdheel, they are those who utter the likes of this speech. The people of Takhdheel are from the most harmful of the people upon the Salafi Dawah at present. They are from the most harmful people against the Dawah. They wear the gown of Salafiyyah, whilst salafiyyah is free from them.
*Let us present this statement (of Abdul Malik) in the opposite direction. If you said to them: We attend the lessons (or sittings) of Shaikh Ubaid, Muhammad Ibn Haadi and Abdullaah al-Bukhaari and we do not attend that of Shaikh Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbaad, Abdur-Razzaaq nor that of Sulaymaan, then is it that a Salafi must attend the lessons of these (Mashaayikh) in order to be a Salafi? The question has now been presented in the opposite direction and they will not have an answer.
*We say: Attend the lessons (or sittings) of Shaikh Abdul Muhsin; attend the lessons (or sittings) of Shaikh Ubaid and the Mashaayikh of the Sunnah with a Shart (i.e. condition). And just because I say that you attend the lessons (or sittings) of Shaikh Abdul Muhsin does not mean that everything he says is correct; and when we say that attend the lessons (or sittings) of Shaikh Ubaid does not mean that everything he says is correct. This (scholar) utters what is correct and sometimes he is mistaken, and this is how it is. This is what is obligatory for you to know.
Just because I direct you to Shaikh Abdul Muhsin does not mean that you accept everything he says because he says what is correct (sometimes) and he is mistaken at other times. Likewise, this is the case with Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Rabee, the Muftee and Shaikh Fawzaan.
We accept the truth and we say: Indeed Imaam Ahmad was correct (i.e. in such and such) and mistaken (in such and such); Imaam Maalik was correct (in such and such) and was mistaken (in such and such)! Is this not the case? It is not the case that those ones were correct and were never mistaken.
*However, these people harbour discomfort in their souls for the Mashaayikh of the Sunnah, just as one of the Mukhad-dhilah Abdul Malik says that these (people) squeeze the Mashaayikh and they do not leave out except three Mashaayikh. Liar (i.e. Abdul Malik is a liar). He has lied and committed an immoral act (i.e. by way of this statement of his).
*And you’ve heard Abdul Malik Ar-Ramadaani-this sick and deviated one-saying that he agrees with Ali Al-Halabi regarding what he has written in his book Manhajus Salafi (i.e. that depraved book) but he disagrees with the timing. Abdul Malik is sick.
These people want to direct the Salafi youth towards such orientation and not towards aiding the Sunnah; rather they direct them towards bidah, betraying the truth and its people, aiding the people desires and speaking ill of Ahlus Sunnah.

Therefore, be warned against Abdul-Malik Ar-Ramadaani because he has been invited by the obstinate UK followers and defenders of Al-Halabi and Al-Maribi at Brixton and Luton. In-Shaa-Allaah some beneficial points will be extracted from the Arabic refutation against Abdul Malik Ar-Ramadaani very soon. We ask Allaah for safety, steadfastness and truthfulness. Aameen
