An Affair Which The Deceitful Ones Amongst Ahlul Bidah – [Hizb Tahreer, Jamaa’atut Takfeer etc] Hid From Some of Us From 1993-1995

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

Some of us were drowned in politics – we used to make Takfeer of the rulers due to extreme ignorance and seeking to establish Walaa Wal Baraa without sound principles. All we used to hear was Aayaat and Ahaadeeth from the lectures of the Takfeeris and the proponents of political activism without any sound explanation from the Salaf or the senior contemporary scholars, rather we hated those scholars [may Allaah raise their rank Aameen]. One of the many Aayaat we used to hear and quote – to make Takfeer of government officials and the civil servants – was:

ٱتَّخَذُوٓاْ أَحۡبَارَهُمۡ وَرُهۡبَـٰنَهُمۡ أَرۡبَابً۬ا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّ

 They took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah [by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful]. [9:31

Here is a beautiful clarification in this subject matter quoted by Shaikh Saaleh Aala Shaikh [hafidhahullaah] from Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah]:

Here is an English translation regarding the same subject matter by the students at salafipublications from the works of Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh al-Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah]:

Finally, therefore one should be thankful to Allaah for this blessed Salafi Manhaj and by Allaah none can be removed from ambiguities and misguidance except by the Tawfeeq of Allaah, as Shaikh Abdus Salaam Burgess [rahiahullaah] said:

“The favour Allaah bestows on a servant by granting him the Tawfeeq [i.e. guidance to know the truth and act] upon the pure Sunnah and follow its upright path, is a great blessing that obligates on a servant to thank and remember Allaah a lot. That is because to act upon the Sunnah in these times is a mighty affair and also a strange thing. [Source: Tasneefun Naasi Aw Radd Alaa Munkiriy at-Tasneef page 20-21]

We ask Allaah to protect our hearts from every affair that will deviate a person from the Salafi methodology, grant us Thabaat, Sidq, Ikhlaas and Husnul Khaatimah. And may Allaah bless the Ulamaa of Ahlus Sunnah and their upright students Aameen.

We Obey The Law And Implement Mandatory Government Guidelines, But Beware of Atheists/Alarmists Superstitions Regarding Disease!  

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

Allaah [The Most High] said:

وَڪَيۡفَ أَخَافُ مَآ أَشۡرَڪۡتُمۡ وَلَا تَخَافُونَ أَنَّكُمۡ أَشۡرَكۡتُم بِٱللَّهِ مَا لَمۡ يُنَزِّلۡ بِهِۦ عَلَيۡڪُمۡ سُلۡطَـٰنً۬ا‌ۚ فَأَىُّ ٱلۡفَرِيقَيۡنِ أَحَقُّ بِٱلۡأَمۡنِ‌ۖ إِن كُنتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ

And how should I fear those whom you ascribe as partners to Allaah, while you fear not that you have ascribed partners  to Allah things for which He has not sent down to you any authority. (So) which of the two parties has more right to be in security? If you but know.” – Meaning, how can it be justified by way of sound intellect or by one who has sound understanding to fear that which you have made a partner of Allaah in deity ship when it is the case that such partners can neither harm nor benefit, but you do not fear the fact that you ascribe partners to Allaah in deity ship of that which He neither sent down proof nor legislated for you; (ref 1); rather you only follow desires. (ref 2).  [ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَلَمۡ يَلۡبِسُوٓاْ إِيمَـٰنَهُم بِظُلۡمٍ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ لَهُمُ ٱلۡأَمۡنُ وَهُم مُّهۡتَدُونَ – It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah and worship none but Him Alone) and confuse not their belief with Zulm (wrong i.e. Shirk), for them (only) there is security and they are the guided. [Surah Al-An’aam. Aayaat 81-82]

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَيَوْمَ نَحْشُرُهُمْ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ نَقُولُ لِلَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا أَيْنَ شُرَكَاؤُكُمُ الَّذِينَ كُنتُمْ تَزْعُمُونَ

ثُمَّ لَمْ تَكُن فِتْنَتُهُمْ إِلَّا أَن قَالُوا وَاللَّهِ رَبِّنَا مَا كُنَّا مُشْرِكِينَ

انظُرْ كَيْفَ كَذَبُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ ۚ وَضَلَّ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ

And on the Day when We shall gather them all together, We shall say to those who ascribed partners (to Us): “Where are your partners whom you used to assert (as partners) with Allah)? There will then be (left) no Fitnah (excuses or statements or arguments) for them but to say: “By Allah, our Lord, we were not those who ascribed partners (to You). Look! How they lie against themselves! But the (lie) which they invented will disappear from them. [6:22-24]

Allaah [The Exalted] informed us of the fate of the people of shirk on the day of judgement that they will be questioned and rebuked. It will be said to them: [أَيْنَ شُرَكَاؤُكُمُ الَّذِينَ كُنتُمْ تَزْعُمُون- Where are your partners (false deities) whom you used to assert (as partners) with Allah)?]- Meaning: Indeed, Allaah has no partners; rather that was a (false claim) and a lie from yourselves.

[ثُمَّ لَمْ تَكُن فِتْنَتُهُمْ – There will then be (left) no Fitnah (excuses or statements or arguments) for them]- Meaning: They will not have any answers when tried and tested by way of this question, except that they will (attempt) to free themselves from their acts of shirk, saying “By Allaah! Our Lord, we were not those who ascribed partners (to You)”. Look at their affair in amazement and how they lie against themselves! They repeat the lie but only in loss and harm against themselves.

[وَضَلَّ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُون – But the (lie) which they invented will disappear from them]-Meaning: Those whom they used to assert as partners with Allaah! Indeed, Exalted and Lofty is Allaah above all that they ascribe to Him as partners. (ref 3)

 

Therefore, beware O Muslim! There are people out there whose Kufr and Shirk is always manifesting in their sciences, views, opinions and theories, so be vigilant. We obey rules and guidelines that have been declared mandatory by the government because one has to follow the law of the land, but do not allow the atheists to affect your hearts. Therefore, one must read the clarifications in the following links regarding the concept of contagious disease in the Deen of Allaah and how to behave whether there is a lock down or not.

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.

Have Wondered Why Some People Cry, Scream and Faint When They Attend Music Shows of Their Idolised Musician?!

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

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said: Hearts that are emptied of Love for Allaah -hearts that are turned away from Him and seeking remedy from others besides Him- are afflicted with an infatuation with images; for when the heart is filled with Love of Allaah and a strong love for meeting Him [i.e. in the hereafter], this infatuation with images is repelled from it.  And for this reason, Allaah [The Most High] stated about Yusuf [alayhis-salaam]:

[كَذَٰلِكَ لِنَصْرِفَ عَنْهُ السُّوءَ وَالْفَحْشَاءَ ۚ إِنَّهُ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا الْمُخْلَصِينَ -Thus it was, that We might turn away from him evil and illegal sexual intercourse. Surely, he was one of Our chosen, guided slaves]. This shows that sincerity to [Allaah] is a means to repelling [evil]. And because of this, some of the Salaf said: ‘’Infatuation is an agitation in empty hearts.” Meaning: [Hearts] emptied of other than what they crave for.

Every Qualified And Upright Mujtahid Receives Reward, But The Figureheads of Bidah Stir Up Discord And Call It Ijtihaad – [A Hadeeth About Ijtihaad And a Statement of Shaikh Rabee Regarding The So Called Ijtihaadaat of Ahlul Bidah]

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

Amr bin AI-Aas [radiyallaahu anhu] narrated that he heard Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] saying, “If a Mujtahid gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is correct, he will receive a double reward, and if he gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is wrong, even then he will get a reward.
[Bukhari Number 7352]

Few Masaa’il From This Hadeeth

[1] A Mujtahid is not deprived of reward.

[2] The judgement of a non-Mujtahid is different from that of a Mujtahid. Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [rahimahullaah] said that the one who speaks about the religion without knowledge and out of ignorance, then indeed he has lied and sinned. The one who intentionally speaks to oppose the truth, he is threatened with entry into the fire of hell, as opposed to the affair of the one who speaks based on permissible Ijtihaad, for indeed he strives, fears Allaah as much as he is able, desires to seek knowledge as much as he was able, speaks for the sake of Allaah, knows the stronger proof and speaks based on that. This person is given two rewards if he is correct; but if he is mistaken, he receives one reward.

[3] A Mujtahid can be correct or mistaken. [Reg 1]

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadee [hafidha-hullaah] said:

We do not say that there are people of ijtihaad amongst ahlul bidah because they are followers of desires, and Allaah and His Messenger have testified to this. The misguided innovator stirs up discord and errs, and then says to you, ‘This is ijtihaad’. When Hikmatiyaar and the misguided parties [in Afghanistan] murdered Shaikh Jameel Ur-Rahmaan, they said: “This is ijtihaad.” They [ahlul bidah] do not fall into an affair of misguidance or a calamity except that they say, “This is ijtihaad.”  This is [tantamount] to diluting Islaam, falsehood, misguidance, bidah and confounding truth with falsehood, when the mistakes of the [true and qualified scholars of ijtihaad]- for which they are rewarded- are placed at the same level with innovation, about which the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] declared to be destined for the hell fire. [Ref 2]

Leadership Is Not to Be Given to Those Who Crave For It Regardless The Promises They Make When Asking For It

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

Narrated Abu Musa [radiyallaahu-anhu]: Two men from my tribe and I entered upon the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]. One of the two men said to the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], ‘’O Allaah’s Messenger! Appoint me as a governor,’ and so did the second. The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said, ‘’We do not assign the authority of the ruling to those who ask for it, nor those who are keen to have it.’’

Gentle Reminder To Those Who Approach This Affair In a Haphazard Manner And Unveiling The Half-truths of The Obstinate Hizbiyyoon

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

Introduction

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Among the rights of the scholars is that one should not be a partisan of their statements without proof. There is a difference between exalting the scholars, honouring them and acknowledging their rights as opposed to being a partisan of their statements when they oppose the proofs. Indeed, [blind] partisanship is blameworthy, and it is tantamount to ignorance [Ref 1]; but showing respect to a scholar and honouring him is related to the virtues of knowledge. And abandoning those statements of the scholars that are in opposition to the proofs is not tantamount to nullifying their statements and a violation of their rights, rather it is adherence to the path of the infallible one [i.e. the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)].

Ponder, Before You Lend an Ear to Populist Leaders, Rushing into The Streets to Participate In So Called Peaceful Protests & Destroying Your Nation with Your Own Hands]  

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

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said: Security is a necessity for every human society, especially a Muslim society. Security is a necessity for every society because through it, the beneficial affairs of livelihood are attained. And in the absence of security, the rights of the people are violated, and the beneficial affairs of livelihood cannot be attained; anxiety, fear & chaos occurs, & people are overpowered by the oppressors. Robbery, looting and bloodshed takes place. In the absence of security in society, a person is neither safe even whilst he is at home nor is his family and wealth protected; neither will he be safe in the street nor in the masjid; neither in his office nor anywhere else.

The Deadly Scorpions [Ahlul Bidah On Twitter] – Once Again – Think That They Can Sting

Imaam Al-Barbahaari [rahimahullaah] said:

The likeness of the people of innovation is that of scorpions burying their heads and bodies in the sand and leaving their tails out; so, when they are able they sting. Likewise, the people of innovation hide themselves within the people and when they are able, they convey what they desire.
