Important Advice From the Imaam, the ‘Allaamah Rabee’ al-Madkhali (hafidhahullaah)

Important advice from the Imaam of Jarh wat-Ta’deel (criticism and praise), the ‘Allaamah Rabee al-Madkhali (hafidhahullaah) for his children everywhere:

بِسْم الله الرحمن الرحيم
:الحمد لله و الصلاة و السلام على رسول الله و على آله و صحبه و من اتبع هداه، أما بعد

Indeed I advise myself and all of the Muslims, and the Salafis especially, to have Taqwaa of Allah (The Glorified and Most High), to cling to the Rope of Allah (The Mighty and Majestic), to establish brotherhood, especially between the Salafis, to stick together and have cooperation between each other upon righteousness and Taqwaa, and to stay far away from the causes of differing — may Allah bless you all — because this (differing) tarnishes the D’awah of the Salafis, tarnishes their image, and makes their enemies happy.

So I advise the Salafis to have Taqwaa of Allah (The Glorified and Most High). And to strive adamantly in establishing love, brotherhood, mercy, and closeness between themselves. And to stay away from the causes of differing. And whoever makes an error from the Salafis, he should not be defamed openly. Rather he should only be advised by those people of sound intellect and correct knowledge; he should be advised with wisdom and a good admonition.

I advise my brothers, especially from Britain, to establish brotherhood with their Salafi brothers in Kuwait, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in Egypt, in Sudan, and in all directions of the Islamic World. And if a group from Kuwait or somewhere else comes to them, they should welcome them with all respect and pride, and they must not fear from anyone. There is no fear in that, may Allah bless you all. Shaytaan makes you fearful and scared of so-and-so and so-and-so; so do not fear except Allah (The Glorified and Most High).

Have respect for each other and have respect for your Kuwaiti brothers, those who have made tremendous efforts in establishing your Da’wah, spreading it, and aiding it; do not disregard that good service.

May Allah aid you, rectify your mistakes, bless you, bring your hearts together, and turn away every evil from us and you.

و صلى الله على نبينا محمد و على آله و صحبه و سلم

This speech came from me on the night of the 7th of Shawwaal of the year 1436.

I emphasize to those brothers who are verbally attacking each other and exchanging bad speech these days that they must have Taqwaa of Allah and be ashamed of these evil actions. There is not any patience, there is not any gentleness, there is not any, there is not any.

However the Salafi Dawah is established upon these foundations: patience, gentleness, tolerance, and to the end of the list. So if an individual makes an error, don’t refute him (publicly); remain silent, advise him between yourselves, and abandon these altercations. Be shy of Allah (The Mighty and Majestic), respect each other, and do not tarnish this Salafi Da’wah with these evil altercations. Have Taqwaa of Allah in regards to yourselves and in regards to this Da’wah.

و صلى الله على نبينا محمد و على آله و صحبه و سلم
