[2] The Stance of the Salaf Towards Ahlul Bidah

Abu Qilaabah said: “Neither sit with the people of desires (i.e. people of bidah) nor argue with them, for indeed I do not feel secure that they will plunge you in their misguidance, or bewilder you regarding what (i.e. the truth) you already know.”

[Al-Ibaanah369]

 

 

 

Salaam bin Abee Mutee said: A man from the people of bidah said to Ayyoub (i.e. Ayyoob As-Sakhtiyaanee): ‘O Abu- Bakr! Can I ask you about a word? [He (i.e. Salaam)] said: “So I saw him (i.e. Ayyoub) gesturing with his hand, whilst saying: ”’Not even half a word; not even half a word!”

[Al-Ibaanah of Ibn Battah 482]

The Nabahaani khaarijite cult [Hizb Tahrir]—Reminder to Our Noble Brothers @Masjid Al-Furqaan

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

I remind myself and all the brothers at [Masjid Al-Furqaan (Stoke-on-Trent)] of the following:

Al-Hasan (al-Basree) said: ‘The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem rather he propagates his wisdom.  If it is accepted he praises Allah and if it is rejected he praises Allah'[1]

Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) commented on the above statement saying: Concerning the statement of Imaam Barbahaaree that Hasan al-Basree said: ‘The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem….’

Al-Hasan Al-Basree: He is Al-Hasan Ibnu Abil Hasan Al-Basree the well known Imaam from amongst the Taa’bi’een; he said:

‘The wise man’, that is the one who possesses wisdom, and wisdom is to place something in its (proper) place.  Likewise, the wise one means the one with understanding.   Therefore, two meanings are intended by Al-Hakeem (the wise one).  The first intended meaning is one who places the affairs in their (proper) place.  And it is also intended to mean the one who has understanding, because wisdom is understanding and knowledge of what is intended by Allah and His Messenger (i.e. the understanding of the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger and the path of the Salaf).

He (i.e. the wise one) ‘does not argue’.  He does not debate (with) a fruitless debate that is devoid of benefit.

‘And he (i.e. the wise one) does not seek to overcome with stratagem’.  He does not seek to overcome the people of falsehood with stratagem and to make them submit.  ‘His wisdom’, that is he propagates his knowledge and if accepted he praises Allah.  This is what is sought after.  And if it (i.e. his knowledge/wisdom) is not accepted, he is absolved of his responsibility and the proof is conveyed.

And concerning the statement, ‘He (i.e. the wise one) praises Allah’; because he established and conveyed the proof, and fulfilled that which is required of him, and the guiding of the hearts is in the hands of Allah (Glorified And Exalted Be He).

 

 The Khawaarij of old and those who carry their ideology today

The Khawaarij were the first people to declare sinful Muslims to be disbelievers and they declare lawful rebellion against Muslim Rulers.  The khawaarij of old were called ‘Al-Harooriyyah’ because they began their bidah of rebellion against the Muslim rulers at a place called Haroora in Koofah.  They were also called ‘Ahlu An-Nahrawaan’ (The people of Nahrawaan) because Ali (radiyallaahu-anhu) fought them at that place.  They are divided into different groupings: The Ibaadiyyah-followers of Abdullaah Bin Ibaad; the Al-Azaariqah-the followers of Naafi Bin Azraq and others. [for further details see: Sharh Hadeethu Jibreel of Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah: page: 319]

Please brothers! Ignore those foolish ring leaders of the Nabahaani cult.  The Salafi brothers in Stoke are well aware of the extreme foolishness and ignorance of this cult.  They are only looking for someone to give them publicity.  In-Shaa-Allaah…the  details in following threads will be enough as an insight into the deviation and foolishness of these deviated people..

See following articles:

[1] http://www.thenoblequran.com/sps/sp.cfm?subsecID=GRV03&articleID=GRV030005&articlePages=1

[2] http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=11168

[3] http://www.thenoblequran.com/sps/sp.cfm?subsecID=GRV03&articleID=GRV030004&articlePages=1

 

Finally: Likewise, it is well-known to the Salafiyyoon in Stoke, Manchester and Birmingham that those ring leaders of hizb tahrir in [Stoke and else –where] are callers to bidah, and as we all know the callers to bidah are not given any consideration.  Imaam al-Awzaa’ee said: ”Do not give a person of Innovation a chance to debate…”

Brothers: If it is the case that the ring leaders of this splinter of group of the khawaarij [Hizb Tahrir] have rejected the advises of the Imams of the Sunnah in this Era [i.e. Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen, Imaam Naasiruddeen Al-Albaani) and their brothers amongst the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah, such as the likes of [Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Abdul Azeez Aala Shaikh, Shaikh Luhaydaan, Shaikh Ghidiyaan and others], then who else will they listen to?!  Therefore, we remind the brothers not to entertain the foolishness of this cult; rather the evidences against them will be posted on this website because the Salafi Students of knowledge in the UK have already transmitted the refutations of the scholars against them.  May Allaah guide the members of this cult or protect us from their bidah.

What is [الوسطية] [Al-Wasatiyyah (The Middle Path)?

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Sheikh Muhammad Bin Saalim Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

It is widely known with some of the people, that Al [ٱلۡوُسۡطَ] is only that which occupies the middle position between two things, and they do not call to attention the other meaning of this word, as mentioned in the Magnificent Qur’aan and the Prophetic Sunnah. [ٱلۡوُسۡطَ ]  in the Islamic legislation is that which is ‘Superior.’ [Allaah (The Most High)] said: said:

 

حَـٰفِظُواْ عَلَى ٱلصَّلَوَٲتِ وَٱلصَّلَوٰةِ ٱلۡوُسۡطَىٰ

”Guard strictly (five obligatory) As-Salawaat (the prayers) especially the Salatul Wustaa (the Asr prayer)” [2:238]

[ٱلۡوُسۡطَىٰ]; meaning: the best, more excellent etc.

And [Allaah (The Most High)] said:

مِنۡ أَوۡسَطِ مَا تُطۡعِمُونَ أَهۡلِيكُمۡ

[مِنۡ أَوۡسَطِ ] [On the scale] of the average of that which you feed your own families” [5:89]

That is: The best and most just.

And [Allaah (The Most High)] said:

وَكَذَٲلِكَ جَعَلۡنَـٰكُمۡ أُمَّةً۬ وَسَطً۬ا

”Thus We have made you [أُمَّةً۬ وَسَطً۬ا] [2:143]

That is: the best and most upright.

 

The intent behind all this is to understand that [الوسطية] in the context of the Religion is that which is ‘best’ and the ‘Justice of the Religion’—(and it is) to follow that which Allaah (The Mighty and Magestic) has commanded and keep away and refrain from that which He has forbidden.  As for the explanation of [الوسطية] in the religious context with a meaning other than this meaning; then it is (something founded upon a foundation) ready to crumble down. It is a mirage which the thirsty one considers water (i.e. an illusion). [Source: Al Haqeeqatus Shar-iyyah Fee Tafseeril Qur’aanil Adheem Was-Sunnatin Nabawiyyati page: 186]

 

Rebellion against the Rulers–O Muslims! Ponder Upon This Statement of Imaam Ibnul Qayyim

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

Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) stated:

He [i.e. the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi-wasallam)] legislated for his Ummah the obligation of disapproving evil, in order that by disapproving it, the good beloved to Allaah and His Messenger is reached. And if disapproving evil will necessitate what is eviler and more hateful to Allaah and His Messenger, then it is not permitted to disapprove of it, even if Allaah hates it and loathes those who carry out (such evil). And this is similar to the disapproval towards the kings and those in charge of the affairs—by rebelling against them; for indeed it is the foundation of every evil and trial till the end of time.

And indeed the Sahaabah sought the permission of Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) to kill those rulers who delay the prayer from its prescribed time, and they said: ‘’Should we not kill them?’’”So he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “’’No; as long as they establish the prayer.’’”He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-sallam) said: “Whoever sees something from his ruler which he hates, then let him exercise patience and not remove the hand of obedience to the ruler.’’”

And whoever ponders upon the greatest and smallest trials that have taken its toll on Islaam, he/she will observe that (such trials occur) as a result of neglecting this principle and (due to) the absence of exercising patience in [the face of] evil.  So he (i.e. the person) seeks to stop it and what is of greater evil emanates from it.

And indeed, Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu-alayhi- wasallam) saw the gravest evils in Makkah and he was unable to stop them; rather when Allaah (enabled the Muslims to) conquer Makkah and it became an Islamic Land,  he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) was determined to alter the Ka’bah and rebuild it based on the foundations it was built upon by Ibraaheem (alayhis-salaam).  However, he refrained from (it) even though he had the ability to do so, fearing that that which is greater (disadvantage) will ensue due to the Quraish not been able to bear it; because they were new  converts to Islaam and had abandoned disbelief not so long. And because of this (reason), he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) did not permit disapproval towards the rulers by way of using one’s hand (i.e. through fighting) due to what may result from it—affairs of greater (evil) that may come about thereafter.

An Explanation of the Sayings of The Biased-Partisans [Spubs.com]

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

Indeed, we did emphasise the need to visit this website [www.salafipublications.com]; because there are many reoccurring affairs of fitan, which were previously dealt with by the students at Maktabah Salafiyyah from the works of the scholars.

[الحمد لله]….there are many Maraakiz of Salafiyyah in the West—free from the falsehood of the followers of hajoori and halabi—but it is also important that we are well aware of evil plots, devilish insinuations and false accusations of those carrying the views of the Qutubis, Sorooris and Ikhwaanis.

Recently we have seen some of the ignorant liars, slanderers and allies of the innovators–such as the likes of Abu Eesa Niamatullaah—attempting to slander the Salafiyyoon in order to justify his deviated and destructive methodology.  Therefore, it is important that the young Salafi brothers and sisters are well aware of some of those affairs through which the likes of Abu Eesa and others seek to confound truth with falsehood, and in order to promote their deviated views as alternatives to the sound Manhaj positions of the Ulama of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa-ah.  The following article is very important indeed and may Allaah grant us Tawfeeq to understand the issues….Aameen.

We ask Allaah to reward and preserve the Ulamaa of Ahlus Sunnah.  We ask Allaah to preserve and reward the students at Maktabah Salafiyyah, and may Allaah grant them the Tawfeeq to carry on defending this blessed Manhajus Salafi in the West.   Aameen.

[2] What type of Mujaddid was Sayyid Qutb?!


Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

 

Indeed the fitna of this man and those with him is the fitna of this era. It is the severest fitna in this era because it confounds (truth with falsehood through the true) Salafi methodology.  Beware of them O brothers; they have affairs of deception, adulteration, plotting and trickery, which are not known except to Allaah. They preoccupy themselves mostly with (setting up) traps for the Salafi youth.  They neither give concern to inviting the Christians and Jews nor the rawaafid (shiites) and the soofees to the true methodology; and why is this (the case)? Because the one who is deprived of (something) cannot give it (to others).

 

So (what) they mostly preoccupy themselves with is to corrupt the righteous people and those whom Allaah has guided to the way of the Lord of the Worlds.  Most of (what) they preoccupy themselves with at present in the world is to set traps for the Salafi youth, and they wear a counterfeit Salafi gown for it; so that they are able to tear it apart and distance it from this (true) methodology.

 

They utilize various ways to defame the scholars of this (true) methodology and to defame this methodology itself–and Allaah’s Protection is sought! And they brandish the methodology of Sayyid Qutb even though within it there is insult to the prophets; and even though within it there is takfeer against some of the Sahaabah; and even though within it there is takfeer against the ummah…. (Even though within it there are) creeds of misguidance—the creed of hulool, wahdatul wujood, the nullification of Allaah’s Attributes and the (innovated speech that the) Qur’aan is created.  All these affairs (of misguidance committed by Sayyid Qutb)–in their view–does not negate revival; for according to them he is a Mujaddid (reviver)!!
We say: Yes, he is a Mujaddid; but he is a Mujaddid of every major bidah, (such as) the school of thought of the khawaarij, the rawaafid (shiites), the murjia, the jabariyyah and the soofiyyah. He revived all of them; and between us (Salafis) and them (i.e. the followers of Sayyid Qutb) are the books of Sayyid Qutb and his writings (as a witness).

According to them this is the Mujaddid and an Imaam for whose sake they (establish) alliances (with those who agree with them) and enmity (towards those who oppose them). So what calamity upon Islaam can be more severe than this calamity?

Imaam Al-Aa’jurree said about the Khawaarij……..

Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) said:

“By Allaah the ummah will not exit from its problems,  the humiliation and degradation they are living in; except by way of returning to the Book of Allaah, the Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam) and the understanding of the Salafus Saalih in (dealing with) the affairs of the khawaarij and others. Imaam Al-Aajurree (rahimahullaah) said: “The scholars do not differ–past and present–that the khawaarij are an evil people, disobedient to Allaah and His Messenger, even if they (perform) the prayer, fast and strive in (carrying out) acts of worship.”

Pious Soft Leaders and Pious Tough Leaders

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

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

Amr Ibnul Aas (radiyallaahu-anhu) was one of those given authority and so was Abu Ubaydah Bin Jarraah (radiyallaahu-anhu).  And Khaalid Bin Waleed (radiyallaahu-anhu) was given preference over them due to his bravery and usefulness in Jihaad.  When Abu Bakr (radiyallaahu-anhu) passed away, Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaahu-anhu) gave Abu Ubaydah authority over all of them; for Umar Ibnul khattaab used to be tough for the sake of Allaah, so he appointed Abu Ubaydah for he was soft.  And Abu Bakr was soft and Khaalid was tough against the disbelievers; so the soft one gave authority to the tough one and the tough one gave authority to the soft one in order to balance the affairs.  These two (Abu Bakr and Umar) acted in a manner most beloved to Allaah with regards to fulfilling His Rights.
It has been established in the Saheeh (i.e. Bukhaari and Muslim) that when the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) consulted his companions regarding the affair of the prisoners of war during the battle of Badr, Abu Bakr (radiyallaahu-anhu) suggested that they should be set free after taking ransom on their behalf and Umar (radiyallaahu-anahu) suggested that they should be executed; so the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:
‘Indeed Allaah softens the hearts of men until they become softer than cloth (of linen or cotton), and He toughens the hearts of men until they become tougher than a rock.  And your likeness O Abu Bakr is that of Ibraaheem (alayhis-salaam) when he said:

[فَمَن تَبِعَنِى فَإِنَّهُ ۥ مِنِّى‌ۖ وَمَنۡ عَصَانِى فَإِنَّكَ غَفُورٌ۬ رَّحِيمٌ۬ ] ‘But whoever follows me, he verily is of me. And whoever disobeys me, – still You are indeed Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’’ [14:36];

And like Esaa (alayhis-salaam) when he said:  [إِن تُعَذِّبۡہُمۡ فَإِنَّہُمۡ عِبَادُكَ‌ۖ وَإِن تَغۡفِرۡ لَهُمۡ فَإِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ] ‘’If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily You, only You are the All Mighty, the All Wise.’’ [5:118]
And your likeness O Umar is that of Nuh (alayhis-salaam) when he said:

[وَقَالَ نُوحٌ۬ رَّبِّ لَا تَذَرۡ عَلَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ مِنَ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ دَيَّارًا ]’And Nuh (Noah) said: ‘My Lord! Leave not one of the disbelievers on the earth!'[71:26];

And like Musaa (alayhis-salaam) when he said: [وَقَالَ مُوسَىٰ رَبَّنَآ إِنَّكَ ءَاتَيۡتَ فِرۡعَوۡنَ وَمَلَأَهُ ۥ زِينَةً۬ وَأَمۡوَٲلاً۬ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا رَبَّنَا لِيُضِلُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِكَ‌ۖ رَبَّنَا ٱطۡمِسۡ عَلَىٰٓ أَمۡوَٲلِهِمۡ وَٱشۡدُدۡ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمۡ فَلَا يُؤۡمِنُواْ حَتَّىٰ يَرَوُاْ ٱلۡعَذَابَ ٱلۡأَلِيمَ] ‘’Our Lord! You have indeed bestowed on Fir’aun (Pharaoh) and his chiefs splendour and wealth in the life of this world, our Lord! That they may lead men astray from Your Path. Our Lord! Destroy their wealth, and harden their hearts, so that they will not believe until they see the painful torment.’’ 10:88

And they (Abu Bakr and Umar) were as the Messenger described them during his lifetime, and they were (also) his vicegerents to the people of the earth.

Neither speak until he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) speaks nor act until he commands you!

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

 

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ فِيكُمْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ لَوْ يُطِيعُكُمْ فِي كَثِيرٍ مِنَ الْأَمْرِ لَعَنِتُّمْ وَلَكِنَّ اللَّهَ حَبَّبَ إِلَيْكُمُ الْأِيمَانَ وَزَيَّنَهُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ وَكَرَّهَ إِلَيْكُمُ الْكُفْرَ وَالْفُسُوقَ وَالْعِصْيَانَ أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الرَّاشِدُونَ فَضْلاً مِنَ اللَّهِ وَنِعْمَةً وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

”And know that, among you there is the Messenger of Allah. If he were to obey you (i.e. follow your opinions and desires) in much of the matter, you would surely be in trouble, but Allah has endeared the Faith to you and has beautified it in your hearts, and has made disbelief, wickedness and disobedience (to Allah and His Messenger) hateful to you. These! They are the rightly guided ones,  (This is) a Grace from Allah and His Favour. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [Soorah Hujuraat: Ayah 7-8]

 

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim said:

Your love for Imaan, desire for it and its beautification in your hearts is not from yourselves; rather it is Allaah who placed it in your hearts.  He is the one who made it preferable and pleasing to you; therefore do not put yourself before Allaah’s Messenger–neither speak until he speaks nor act until he commands you.  The One (i.e. Allaah) who made you love Imaan is the most knowledgeable concerning what is of benefit for His slaves than yourselves.  And had it not been the Tawfeeq of Allaah upon you, your souls would not have yielded to Imaan. Imaan would not have been (acquired) through your consultation and bestowed from yourselves, nor would you have given it precedence; because your souls are unable and weak to (do that), and cannot reach it…. [For further details, See ‘Madaarij As-Saalikeen 1/414—415]

We ask Allaah for truthfulness, firmness and a good end.  Aameen
