They Hate Detail, Clarification And Clear Distinction And Call It Controversy, Whilst It Is Nothing Else But Sound Walaa Wal Baraa
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] said:
O my brothers! Should we [not] love and hate for the sake of Allaah [in our relationship with] ahlul bidah?! Should we [not] love and hate for the sake of Allaah [in our relationship with] them, and is that not the strongest handhold of Eemaan?! Each of you knows what the Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] stated, “The strongest handhold of Eemaan is love for the sake of Allaah and hate for the sake of Allaah’’. Have we established what this hadeeth necessitates in the correct manner?! By Allaah, I see that love – in most cases – is given to ahlul bidah and in most cases many people show enmity to Ahlus Sunnah! This is something that occurs a lot, so you -O brothers – give excuses to those who fall into the snares of those misguided people to such an extent that there are no more excuses; however, after clarification then the proofs have been established against them.
