Educating Those Deceived And Misled By The False Claims of Some of The Hizbiyyoon of Stoke On Trent at [Markaz Al-Huda, Markaz At-Tawheed and Markaz As-Sunnah]-Staunch Allies of The Hizbiyyoon of Greenlane

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

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) said:

This statement is reiterated by some people when warning reaches them from one of the scholars or a student of knowledge against innovated statements (or views) that have occurred from some of the people, or when informed about mistakes committed in knowledge and he is warned about it; so you find that his face becomes red, his (behaviour) changes and he says, ‘’Do not scrutinize the beliefs of the people and do not search for their mistakes.’’ The reality is that this statement is truth by way of which falsehood is sought in this particular instance.

Firstly: The right place to (use this statement) is where one seeks after secrets and hidden affairs, which have neither manifested nor are there any factual evidences indicating towards that. The place (where this statement cannot be used) is  where innovation arises from one of (the people) or when one of them calls to falsehood, since there is a difference between that which is manifested and that which is either concealed, hidden and unknown, or that there is no indication towards that.

Secondly: This statement of theirs will lead to the abandonment of warning against mistakes and censure against innovation and falsehood.  And the meaning of this is that the common people will be beguiled, rather even some of the students of knowledge will become inattentive to this situation.

Thirdly: Was the speech of the Salaf with regards to warning against innovation and the people of falsehood not (carried out) from the angle of warning against false beliefs, innovations and affairs in opposition to the Sunnah?  So how can it be said, ‘do not scrutinize the beliefs and mistakes of the people’ to a person who either warns against an innovation manifested by an individual or points out a mistake committed by an individual?

Fourthly: Scrutinizing the beliefs of the people by way of interrogation and trial as the Khaleefah Mamoon did with regards to the belief that the (Qur’aan is created), then this is an innovation that is warned against.  (However) to make a clarification and (issue) warning against an innovation that some people call to, unveiling the falsehood of the callers to falsehood and warning against them, this is not from that (type of scrutiny that is warned against).

Fifthly: Those (people) who blame the one who unveils the (affairs) of the people of falsehood and issues warning against them, then it is either they disapprove innovations or do not!  If they disapprove innovation, point out mistakes and falsehood, and warn against them, then indeed they have pursued the right course by the Will of Allaah (The Most High). However, why do they disapprove of those who take their place in renouncing innovation?! If they do not warn the people against falsehood, then this (i.e. behaviour or stance of theirs) is not from the methodology of the Salaf and it suffices as a rebuke against them.

Sixthly: It has been reported in Durar As-Saniyyah (1/33) that the Imaam, the Mujaddid, Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab [rahimahullaah] said: I hold that the people of innovation are to be boycotted and their affair is to be made known until they repent.  I pass judgement against them based on what is apparent and I leave their secrets (or hidden) affairs to Allaah.  And I believe that every newly invented matter in the Religion is an innovation.

This [statement of Imaam Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab [rahimahullaah] is the statement of a Salafiy Athariy [i.e. a true follower of the Salaf and the authentic narrations] that emanates from the statement of Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaahu-anhu) when he said:

‘People were (sometimes) judged by the revealing of a Divine Inspiration during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle but now there is no longer any more (new revelation). Now we judge you by the deeds you practice publicly, so we will trust and favour the one who does good deeds in front of us, and we will not call him to account about what he is really doing in secret, for Allah will judge him for that; but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good.’ [Saheeh Bukhaari; Vol 3; Hadith Number:2641]

So examine the statement of Imaam Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab (rahimahullaah) when he said: ‘I judge (ahlul bidah) based upon what is apparent’‘ and examine the statement of Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaahu-anhu) when he said, ‘but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good.’  Then examine the (affair) of that person who disapproves of one who warns against ahlul bidah and exposes their falsehood- claiming that (this warning against ahlul bidah) is tantamount to scrutinizing the Aqeedah of the people.  Is this (statement of his) correct? Glorified and Exalted You are, O My Lord!  Is not judgement passed against the people except through what is apparent?! This principle affirmed by Al Faarooq, Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaah-anhu) is employed in warning against a person of innovation when he manifests his innovation. [1]

The Stance of Imaam Ahmad towards Daawood Ibn Ali Al- Asbahaanee

Daawood Ibn Ali Al-Asbahaanee came to Saaleh Ibn Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal with whom he used to have a good relationship.  So he (Daawood) spoke to Saaleh Ibn Imaam Ahmad to make it easy for him to meet his father.

So Saaleh approached Imaam Ahmad (i.e. his father) and said; A man asked me to bring him to you.

Imaam Ahmad: What is his name?

Saaleh: Daawood.

Imaam Ahmad: Where is he from?

Saaleh: He is from the people of Asbahaan.

Imaam Ahmad: Has he being (involved) in fabricating anything?

At this point: Saaleh refrained from describing Daawood to his father (Imaam Ahmad).  So he (Imaam Ahmad) did not stop enquiring about Daawood until he realized who he was.  Then he said: Muhammad Bin Yahyaa An-Naysabooree wrote to me about this (Daawood) saying that he (Daawood) claims that the Qur’aan is something that was brought into existence (i.e. created), so do not bring him near me.

Saaleh: O my father! he (Daawood) has negated and renounced this (statement).

Imaam Ahmad: Muhammad Bin Yahyaa is more trustworthy than him.  I do not give you permission to bring him to me.

O my brother! Contemplate upon the stance of Imaam Ahmad.  Is this the Imaam? He is the Imaam of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah in his adherence to the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and in following the narrations of the Sahaabah; so did he use to scrutinize the beliefs of the people and seek after their mistakes?!  Examine his statement and that of Umar Ibnul Khattaab mentioned earlier, ‘but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good.’

Therefore, the statement of Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhaab [rahimahullaah] is certified by the statement of the Rightly Guided Khaleefah Umar Ibnul Khattaab [radiyallaahu-anhu] and that of Imaam Ahmad Bin Hanbal [rahimahullaah]. [2]

Whenever The Filthy Doctrine of The Khawaarij Emerges, It Has To Be Rebutted | Shaykh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (Hafithahullah)

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] says:

“The people of knowledge [i.e. the scholars] are of the view that it is obligated on the Muslims in every era that if they are certain about the presence of this filthy doctrine [i.e. the doctrine of the khawaarij], they should remedy it through calling to Allaah [i.e. the correct way] and enlighten the people about that. If they [i.e. khawaarij] do not obey [and come out fighting], then they are fought [by the Muslim ruler] in order to repel their harm.”

Salafiyyah Has To Be Differentiated From The Paths of The Hizbiyyoon! – Shaykh al-Allaamah Rabi’ ibn Haadee al-Madkhali (Hafithahullah)

Al-Allaamah Rabi’ bin Hadee al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

“Salafiyyah and the path upon the cannot be actualised until it is distinguished from the [path of] the people of Innovation and illegal Partisanship- inwardly [in one’s heart] and outwardly [through one’s actions].”

Absolute Safety Is Found In The Path of The Salaf And Beware of Ahlul Bidah! – Shaykh al-Allaamah Zaid ibn Haadi al Madkhali (Rahimahullah)

Al-Allaamah Zaid Ibn Muhammad Al-Madhkali ( May Allah have mercy on him ) said :

“And beware! Beware of falling into innovation and mixing [with] its people, and beware of listening to their deceptive [statements] and arguments because it is a disease. Indeed safety- absolute safety- is found in clinging to the Quran and Sunnah based on the correct understanding- the [understanding] of the Salafus Saaleh [the righteous predecessors], which cannot be attained except by way of ernest effort and striving in seeking understanding of the religion, with the righteous intention, wisdom [in the manner of] attaining and conveying [it].”

Why Do Ahlul Bidah Describe Ahlus Sunnah With Vile Descriptions? Shaykh Zayd al Madkhalee (Rahimahullaah)

Al -Allaamah Zayd bin Muhammad Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“There is no doubt that the vile descriptions uttered by the people of innovation- past and present- which they apply to ahlus sunnah is dictated to them by [their] vain desires, shaytaan and the soul that is inclined to evil.”

Islaam and the Muslims Are Not Ruined, Except By the Khawaarij and Those Similar to Them…by Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi

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

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

By Allaah! Islaam and the Muslims are not ruined except by these type of [people] amongst the people of bidah and misguidance-the khawaarij and those similar to them, and those who are worse such as the Rawaafid.

The rawaafid are worse than the khawaarij, and Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon (Ref1) ally with them and say: “They [rawaafid] are our brothers; the differing between us and them is like the differing between [Imaam] Maalik and [Imaam] Shaafi’ee- Meaning: The differing between us [i.e. Ikhwaan Muslimoon] and them [i.e. rawaafid Shiites] is based on ijtihaad. If Imaam [Maalik] and [Imaam] Shafee’ee differ in [some] affairs, they are all rewarded. And if we [ikhwaan al-muslimoon] differ with the rawaafid shiites, then us and them are rewarded.

O deceivers! [i.e. Ikhwaanis] The rawaafid revile the Sahaabah and declare them disbelievers; they revile the wives of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam]; they say that the Qur’aan is distorted; they have shir’kiyyaat [i.e. beliefs, views and acts of major polytheism] and they deify the leaders of the Prophet’s family. So does all of this not harm them [i.e. harm their claim to Islaam]? Is this not irjaa?! [i.e. O Ikhwaanis! Is this alliance of yours with the rawaafid and your claim that the differing between you and them is like the differing between Imaams Maalik and Shaafi’ee not Ir’jaa?!(Ref 2)]

They say, ‘’Busying Oneself with Refutations Is Not Correct!’’ – Shaikh Rabee Responds To This Claim

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

They say, ‘’Busying Oneself with Refutations Is Not Correct!’’

Shaikh Rabee [may Allaah preserve him] responded to the above as follows:

The people used to read -a lot- the books of deviated views and the libraries were rotting and filled with the books of misguidance and bidah, but they [i.e. those who object when one looks into the books of refutations] did not speak in this manner. However, when the people began to [truly follow] the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah based upon the methodology of the Pious Predecessors and found those books that warned them against Bidah and misguidance, they [i.e. those who object when one looks into the books of refutation] said, “Do not busy yourselves with these affairs; do not abandon knowledge”.

These refutations are from affairs of knowledge. To be acquainted with guidance and [distinguishing it] from misguidance; to be acquainted with good and [distinguishing it] from evil -by Allaah – is from knowledge that will protect [a person], just as Hudhaifah [radiyallaahu-anhu] said, “The people used to ask the Messenger of Allaah about the good, but I used to ask him about the evil out of fear of falling into it”. The books of the people of bidah and misguidance must be known by way of the books that refute them. So unless this happens, then [one should know that] many of the youth were not ruined except when they were deprived of the likes of these books that protect them. There is a means of protection for the youth in these books [i.e. the books written by the scholars to refute errors, misguidance and ahlul bidah etc].

[3] Brief Discussions: Judging Tijaaniyyah Based On the Qur’aan and Authentic Sunnah – [Shaikh Ahmad Tijaani Placed His Followers In Peril Through His Innovations In The Religion]

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

Shaikh Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yusuf Al-Afreeqee (rahimahullaah) stated in Al-Anwaar Ar-Rahmaaniyyah Li-Hidaayah Al-Firqah At-Tijaaniyyah page 16: He (i.e. Ahmad Tijaani) stated in Al-Ifaadah (page: 80): ”Whoever does not believe that it (i.e. Salaatul Faatihah) is from the Qur’aan will not receive a reward from it [i.e. he or she will not be rewarded for reciting Salaatul Faatihah]”

Response to the above statement of Shaikh Ahmad Tijani:

So we say: Whoever believes that (Salaatul Faatihah) is from the Qur’aan, then indeed he has committed clear disbelief because revelation is not sent down except to a Prophet. We do not find this (Salaatul Faatihah) in the Qur’aan; rather not even in a fabricated hadeeth attributed to Allaah’s Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).  Is the one to whom ‘Salaatul Faatihah’ was revealed a Prophet or a Wali?  If he is a Wali, then revelation is never sent down to a Wali.

The people in this Tijaani path are two types of people:

The first group: If they believe that ‘Salaatul Faatihah’ is from the Qur’aan, then indeed they have exited the fold of Islaam.

[Important Clarification Regarding The Above Statement: Removing a Muslim from the fold of Islaam is a serious matter, so one must not rush into this affair; rather the matter is left to the scholars to decide. See a general article on this link to acquaint yourself with some of the rules utilised by the scholars before removing a person from the fold of Islaam. http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/sp.cfm?secID=MNJ&subsecID=MNJ09&loadpage=displaysubsection.cfm ]

The second group: If they believe that ‘Salaatul Faatihah’ is not from the Qur’aan, then indeed they have exited from their Tijaani path because there is no reward in it.

[2] Brief Discussions: Judging Tijaaniyyah Based On the Qur’aan and Authentic Sunnah – [One of the Innovated Dhikr in Tareeqah Tijaaniyyah]

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

Al-Allaamah Abdur Rahmaan Al-Afreeqee (rahimahullaah) stated in Al-Anwaar Ar-Rahmaaniyyah Li-Hidaayah Al-Firqah At-Tijaaniyyah. Pages 14-15]

He (i.e. Ahmad Tijani) said in Jawaahir Al-Ma’aanee: Indeed a single utterance of ‘Salaatul Faatiha’ is equal to every ‘Tasbeeh’ (i.e. to say Subhaanallaah) that takes place in the ‘kawn’ (i.e. the entire existence or universe). [Source: Jawaahir Al-Ma’aanee page: 96.طبع مطبعة التقدم العلمية الطبعة الأولى]

Response to the above claim of Sh Ahmad Tijani

I think the one who uttered this speech (i.e. Ahmad Tijaani) is not really aware who Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) is! He is not really aware of what Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) was sent with and why Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) was sent.

Indeed the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) definitely fulfilled the trust he was entrusted with; conveyed the message and strove in the path of Allaah until he passed away.  He is the seal of the Prophets and the legislation (in belief and acts of worship) he conveyed abrogates every other law until the day of judgement. There is no human being who has ever brought anything similar to what the Messenger Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) brought after he left this world. Whoever claims that there is a revelation or that he has received revelation after Muhammad, then indeed this is the greatest lie against Allaah.  Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تَقُولُواْ لِمَا تَصِفُ أَلۡسِنَتُڪُمُ ٱلۡكَذِبَ هَـٰذَا حَلَـٰلٌ۬ وَهَـٰذَا حَرَامٌ۬ لِّتَفۡتَرُواْ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡكَذِبَ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَفۡتَرُونَ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡكَذِبَ لَا يُفۡلِحُونَ

مَتَـٰعٌ۬ قَلِيلٌ۬ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ۬

And say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely: “This is lawful and this is forbidden,” so as to invent lies against Allah. Verily, those who invent lies against Allah will never prosper.  A passing brief enjoyment (will be theirs), but they will have a painful torment.’’ [16:116-117]

The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

وخير ما قلت أنا والنبيون من قبلي: لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير

And the best thing said by me and the previous prophets is: ”There is no deity worthy of worship other than Allaah, who is alone, having no partner. His is the dominion, and to Him belongs all praise. He is, of everything, All-Capable.” [Reported by Imaam Tirmidhee (rahimahullaah) in his ‘Jaami’ (Number: 3585). Also see Silsilah Al-Ahaadeeth As-Saheehah of Imaam Albaani (rahimahullaah) .Number: 1503]

Therefore, will anyone with a sound intellect affirm that a single utterance of Salaatul Faatiha is better than a single Dhikr that has been transmitted from the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) with an authentic chain of transmission, let alone all the Adhkaar (supplications) that take place in the Kawn (i.e. the entire existence or universe)?  Do you not use your intellects?!

O people! Did they [Adam, Nuh, Musaa, Eesaa and Muhammad (alayhimus-salaam)] not used to remember Allaah? So is the innovator of this Tareeqah Tijaaniyyah better than these Prophets?
