Who Is The Extremist?

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Haadi, Allah have mercy on him, was asked:

Question: Who is the extremist?

Answer: Extremism/harshness is (that a person) makes prohibited upon the people something that Allah didn’t make prohibited and he obligates upon the people something which Allah didn’t obligate. This is extremism/harshness (in the religion). As for holding on to the religion (as it has been revealed), this is not considered extremism (in the religion).

From The Dangers and Evil of ISIS, Al-Qā’idah and Those Like Them

Shaykh Sulayman ar-Ruhayli writes:

From their [i.e: those upon khāriji ideologies like ISIS, Al-Qā’idah, etc] danger is their praise of themselves and their speaking ill of those who are better than them. Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (رحمه الله) stated: “The first to go astray in that are the Khawārij al-Māriqoon (Those who have gone outside the practice of the religion according to the way of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم). This is due to them judging for themselves that they are the ones holding on to the Book of Allah and His Sunnah and that Alī, Mu’āwiyah and the soldiers (who were with these two) are the people of disobedience and innovation. Therefore, as a result of that, they made lawful that which they made lawful from the Muslims.” This is the way of the Khawārij up until today. And this is a great danger. Continue reading

Being A True Salafi

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan (May Allah preserve him) said:

When you want to be a true Salafi, it is upon you to study the way/methodology of the Salaf with precision, know it with insight, then act in accordance to it without extremism and without being lackadaisical. This is the methodology of the Salaf. As for the mere claim and mere ascribing (to the methodology of the Salaf) without any reality, this harms (the person) and doesn’t (bring about) benefit.

A Response That Will Prove the Evil and Blasphemous Nature of The Statements of Amina Wadud

Indeed, the praise is for Allāh; we praise Him and we seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allāh from the evil of ourselves and our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allāh guides, there is no one who can lead that person astray, and whomsoever Allāh leads astray, there is no guide for them. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshiped except Allāh and I bear witness that Muhammad is the servant and last messenger of Allāh to all of mankind and jinn. As to what follows:

Allāh has mentioned in the Qurān:

Indeed you have in the Messenger of Allāh a beautiful example. (al-Ahzāb: 36)

He also stated:

And indeed you (Oh Muhammad) are upon exalted character. (al-Qalam: 4)

The Innovation of the Rāfiḍa is More Severe than the Innovation of the Khawaarij

Shaykh ul-Islam (May Allah have Mercy on him):

And the  innovation (bid’ah)  of the Rāfiḍa is more severe than the innovation  of the Khawaarij. They accuse Abu Bakr and Umar of disbelief, and lie against the Prophet (ﷺ) and the Companions, in a manner that no one has brought the likes of, whilst the Khawaarij do not lie but the Khawaarij used to be more truthful and more courageous than them and more trustworthy in fulfilling their pacts than them and so fought more than them and they (the Rāfiḍa) are the most lying, the most cowardly, most deceitful and most lowly (of people) and they seek help from the disbelievers against the Muslims.  Indeed we have seen and the Muslims have seen that if the Muslims are tried with the disbelieving enemy, they (the Rāfiḍa) are with them (the disbelieving enemy) as was the case with Genghis Khan the disbelieving emperor of the Tatars.  For indeed the Rāfiḍa supported him against the Muslims.

Thinking Ill Of Your Brother’s Intentions

From Ulama Audio: Dr. Abdur Rahman Omaisan answers a question presented during the recent conference in Edmonton, Canada in which someone asked:

What is your advice to an individual who accuses his brothers with loving fame and leadership without presenting any evidence to this allegation?

A beautifully presented answer, fortified by evidence from the book of Allah, the Sunnah of his Messenger salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and adorned by statements of the scholars of old.

May Allah reward the sheikh lavishly for his efforts in teaching the religion and dispelling confusion. Ameen.

هناك من يطعن في خلص إخوانه، بدعوى أنهم متميعون

:قال الشيخ محمد بن رمزان الهاجري وفقه الله

فهناك من يطعن في خلص إخوانه ، بدعوى أنهم متميعون وهم والله أوضح منه وأقوى منه ، لكن لم يوافقوه في هوى قد مال إليه ، أو باطل قد تجرأ عليه ، ولذلك يريد ليوافقوه في باطله وفي ما عنده ، فهم لم يوافقوه ، فادعى زورا وبهتانا أنهم على غير قوة وثبات في الحق ، وهذا من إتهام الخلق بالقول المجرد ، لا بالحجة ولا بالبيان ولا بالأدلة ، فمثل هؤلاء أحكامهم ساقطة لا يلتفت إلى سماعها ، لأنها فيها جور وفيها حيد وفيها ظلم وفيها تعدي ، فلا يؤخذ إلا القول الصحيح الذي معه الأدلة والبرهان ، مما قال بلسان أو خط ببنان ، أما مجرد الكلام والدعاوى فهذه لا يلتفت لها

If a Salafi Goes Astray Due to You

Shaykh ‘Āyid Ash-Shamri  (may Allah preserve him) stated:

This salafi, if he was to go astray due to you, due to your character, due to your harshness, due to your evil thoughts and your lies upon him–if he was to go astray (because of this), you will be held accountable (for that) on the Day of Judgment. This salafi who teaches the books of the Salaf in opposition to the Ikhwānis, in opposition to the Tablīghis, in opposition to the Takfīris, in opposition to the Ashā‘irah and the Sūfis, he teaches Tawhīd, the Sunnah and Salāh–if he was to stop the classes because of you and your tale-carrying, you will be questioned (about this) in front of Allah (‘azza wa-jall). Therefore fear Allah O brothers! Continue reading

حكم السُّكوتِ على خَطأ المخالِف خَشْيةَ الفُرْقَة

الشـيَِـٌخ العلاّمــة عبد المحسن العبَّاد البدر -حفظه اللَّــْـْہ ورعاه

السؤال: ما نصِيحتُك -حفظك الله- لمن يقول: الردُّ على الْمُخالِف يُسبِّب الفُرْقَة بين المسلمِينَ؛ ولكن الواجِب السُّكوتُ على الخطأ؛ حتَّى تجتمِعَ كلمةُ المسلمِين؟

.الجواب: هذا غيرُ صحيح! هذا باطلٌ! بل الخطأ -يعني- يُبيَّن ويُوضَّح، ولا يُترَك
.وأمَّا قضية التَّرك من أجل أن هذا يُسبِّب فُرقَة؛ بل الفُرقَة حصلت بالمخالفات، والخروج عن الجادَّةِ؛ فالواجب هو بيان الحقِّ، والردُّ على الْمُبطِل

.وإذا كان الذي حصل منه الخطأ ليس من أهل البدع؛ وإنما هو من أهل السُّنَّة -وحصل الخطأ- فإنَّه يُناصَح ويُرفَق بِه؛ لأنَّ المقصود هو الإصلاحُ Continue reading
