The Fitnah of Scheming Youth Leveraging the term "Ṣaʿāfiqah" in Order to Demonize the Salafī Callers



Our comments on this incendiary upstart:

  1. This ignorant youth speaks in the arena of the scholars about public matters affecting the Muslims, without insight or wisdom.

  2. As displayed above, Abū Khadījah narrated that Shaykh Rabīʿ has read the documents presented against known Salafī students of knowledge and shaykhs, and stated there is no proof against these Salafi callers, Shaykh ʿUbayd has said the same.

  3. This youth claims that “every last one of them heard all of his evidences.” Who is “them”? The scholars? Their students? And he believes that there is evidence for the “falsehood and lies” of the Salafī shaykhs and students of knowledge (who he refers to as Ṣaʿāfiqah), that “every last one of them heard”! This in spite of the fact that Shaykh Rabīʿ and Shaykh ʿUbayd have clearly stated, there is no evidence or proof presented against these shaykhs and students of knowledge that warrants their tabdīʿ (declaring them innovators) and taḍlīl (declaring them misguided). So, O insolent one, who speaks with boldness in front of the Imām of Sunnah and Ḥadīth (Shaykh Rabīʿ), bring those evidences that necessitate “proof” and necessitate warning, and necessitate your insistence of using the term “Ṣaʿāfiqah” upon Ahl al-Sunnah, as if there is a sect that has split off from Ahl al-Sunnah called Ṣaʿāfiqah! Or does he believe there is a sect within Ahl al-Sunnah with that title? If it is claimed that "I am merely following the saying of one scholar (i.e. Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Hādī)", then, this miskīn is nothing more than a blind-follower who calls others to blindly follow. If he knows the proofs “that every last one of them” heard, then present them. Otherwise, he should recant and make tawbah for his fanaticism, his oppression against other Salafis and his labelling of them as a sect (i.e. Ṣaʿāfiqah).

  4. This miskīn may not know that Shaykh Rabīʿ is an Imām in Ḥadīth and the arena of Jarḥ wa-al-Taʿdīl. He is senior in knowledge and rank to Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Hādī — a fact that is not denied by any of the scholars, and he is 40 years or so older than Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Hādī and is considered as his elder teacher. And it is known from the words of the Prophet (ṣallāllāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) that he said: “The blessings are with your elders” (Authenticated by al-Albānī in al-Ṣaḥīḥah). As for an ʿĀlim like Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Hādī, then he can be mistaken. An ‘Ālim can be right and also be wrong in his speech, and the other more senior ʿUlamāʾ have highlighted his error. As for this rabble-rousing youngster, he has no right to comment to begin with! So he carries stories without proof, blindly following, throwing Ahl al-Sunnah into a sect known to you as the ṣaʿāfiqah, and tweets that to the world, calling others to follow that?! And all this after knowing the statements of the senior scholars such as Shaykh Rabīʿ and Shaykh ʿUbayd, both of whom have nullified the usage of this term and have rejected the attacks upon the Salafī students of knowledge and shaykhs due to the absence of proof showing their bidʿah or opposition to the Usūl. This youngster has the audacity to speak in the face of that!

  5. So we say to this youth, Ilyas Aidarus: bring your proof for throwing a body of Ahl al-Sunnah into a newly invented sect and show us this evidence that “every last one” of us (including Shaykh Rabīʿ, Shaykh ʿUbayd and Shaykh ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī) have heard!! Otherwise, we await your recantation and tawbah from these evil assertions against Ahl al-Sunnah and their senior scholars.

Benefit: The Main Body of Salafis in Your Land Know Your Reality

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Yaḥyá al-Muʿalimī (رحمه الله) mentioned:

The narrator who is severely criticized by the people of Ḥadīth in his land is not increased by the praise of foreigners except in loss. This is because he deliberately causes confusion regarding his condition. He embellishes himself—to these foreigners—with correct narrations, so they assume that this is his state of affair, and based upon this, they praise him. However, the people of his land know his reality!

Benefit: Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Ibn Bāz Concerning Major Sinners and Their Places in the Hereafter

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 Ustādh Mūsá Richardson translates a fatwá on the issue of major sinners and their places in the hereafter as explained by our Shaykh, ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (raḥimahullāh). In his fatwá collection vol 6. p 391, he was asked the following:

[Q]: Allāh says in the Qurʾān that He does not forgive that partners are associated in worship alongside him, but he forgives anything less than that (Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:116). He also says He is the most forgiving for whomever repents and believes and does righteous deed (Sūrah Ṭā Hā, 20:82). Is there a clash between these two verses? And what is the meaning of his statement "everything less than shirk (polytheism) for whomever he pleases" in the first ayāh.

Benefit: Refuting Falsehood is from Removing Harm from the Path

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razāq al-Badr mentioned:

The people are divided into three categories with regards to removing that which is harmful from the path.

1) Those who remove that which is harmful from the path
2) Those who discard removing that which is harmful from the path
3) Those who place that which is harmful upon the path

All of these three categories of people are from the people of īmān, but they are not equal.

There is also a very beautiful benefit in this narration, it is that the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) considered the removal of that which is harmful from the path as an act of faith. The meaning of, “that which is harmful” is something tangible which harms and hinders the people from their course of achieving their worldly interests. Likewise, with all the more reason, removing that which is harmful from the path also means: removing that which hinders the people from their path towards the obedience of their Lord, and this is also considered an act of faith.

Therefore, refuting the people of innovation, warning against them and refuting their doubts is all from removing that which is harmful from the path; and it is considered to be from Īmān (faith).

Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banna’s Exclusive Introduction to Our Weekly Four Principles Class

  Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banna’s Exclusive Introduction to Our Weekly Four Principles Class

On the 8th of Jumād al-Awwāl 1439, corresponding to the 25th of January 2018, we requested an exclusive introduction from our noble shaykh, Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banna (حفظه الله), to our new weekly Four Principles class, a class that takes place on Saturdays after Maghrib. The shaykh happily agreed and proceeded with the advice detailed below.

After praising Allāh and sending salutations upon the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam), he said:

This advice is from your brother Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banna, the Salafī Islamic caller in the Arab Republic of Egypt. I greet you with the Islamic greeting al-Salāmu ʿAlaykum wa-Raḥmatullāh wa Barakātuh.

I ask Allāh to grant you success and steadfastness. Our brother Munīb — who resides in Canada and is originally from Somalia — requests that we give a brief introduction to this new class. Allāh has granted you success in completing al-Uṣūl al-Thalāthah (The Three Fundamental Principles) by the illustrious Imām, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb, along with the explanation of various scholars. Allāh has blessed you and granted you all success in completing this treatise and now you will be starting your class in al-Qawāʿid al-ʾArbaʿ (The Four Fundamental Principles) by Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb, with the explanation of Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān.

Glad tidings to you all for this effort of yours. These (treatises) are fundamental introductory books in the field of al-Tawḥīd. You began with al-Uṣūl al-Thalāthah and now you will begin al-Qawāʿid al-ʾArbaʿ, then The Six Principles, then The Removal of the Doubts, then The Book of Tawḥīd and then the various books on ʿAqīdah and Manhaj. This is the methodology of Ahl al-Sunnah, and glad tidings to you for embarking upon this methodology. I ask Allāh to grant you success and steadfastness.

You will now start with al-Qawāʿid al-ʾArbaʿ, and in reality, al-Qawāʿid al-ʾArbaʿ not only benefits you, but it likewise benefits the non-Muslims as well, because in it is a battle against the false deities and a battle against the grave worshippers who worship the graves of righteous Muslims and the graves of the rabbis and monks from amongst the Christians and Jews.

So in this Qawāʿid al-ʾArbaʿ, there is much emphasis on refuting these false beliefs of the people of the graves. Many of the Muslims establish graves in mosques like the ones we have here in Egypt, the graves of Husayn and Zaynab (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhum), and other than them from the graves we have here in Egypt, and likewise other graves that the people go to in Morocco, India, Pakistan and other than them.

So this treatise by Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb will benefit you and the Christians as well. So encourage your fellow Muslims to come out to this class and benefit so that they may call the non-Muslims to Islām. There is no issue if it is a class in a different language (English); let the people come out and listen.

It could be that someone is guided to Islām by way of you and that person who is guided ends up being a great benefit to Islām and the Muslims. So I encourage all of you to attend this class, and I ask Allāh to reward you all for your actions. I ask Allāh to make these classes of yours consistent and continuous up until we meet our Lord.

The shaykh concludes by supplicating for the brothers and sisters.
