Benefit: The Culture of Arrogance and Entitlement That May Befool the Young Student

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Doubt #4: The Culture of Arrogance and Entitlement That May Befool the Young Student

Questioner: May Allāh show you goodness. What is your advice for those who belittle their elders in age. For example, they belittle a man who is upon the Sunnah for 30 or 40 years but he does not know the Arabic language and he does not know from the Qurʾān except a little. So they would come back from al-Madīnah and belittle them by saying: Look at them! They are 60 years of age and they do not comprehend the Arabic language. They belittle them so that they can be raised in the sight of the people.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

If an Englishman, a Frenchman or an American, who does not comprehend the Arabic language—thereafter, acknowledges Tawhīd, studies Tawḥīd, becomes enlightened with Tawḥīd, performs actions based upon Tawḥīd, accompanies the people of Tawḥīd [i.e. Ahl al-Sunnah]— is such a person blamed for not knowing the Arabic language? No!

Suḥayb al-Rūmī embraced Islām with the Messenger (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) and Salmān al-Fārisī. Neither knew the Arabic language before they came. So do we say to these people (who do not know the Arabic language) to go away and that they are not upon the Sunnah!? No!

As long as they are upon the Sunnah and they understand the Sunnah, they should not be blamed for not knowing the Arabic language. We advise them to learn the Arabic language. We do not blame them or reject them for not knowing it, rather, we are happy for them having embraced the Sunnah.

Otherwise, how would the non-Muslim embrace Islām? How would an American or a Brit embrace Islām if you question them regarding knowing the Arabic language? We should accept them and show happiness for their acceptance of Islām and as long as they are upon the beliefs and actions of the people of the Sunnah. They are with us and become our brothers from Ahl al-Sunnah. We neither reject them nor abandon them because they do not know the Arabic language.

These are from the matters which deter from the path of Allāh! They are deterring the people from the religion and from Tawḥīd. So fear Allāh with regards to your religion! May Allah guide you and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

Benefit: Corrupt Character

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

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razāq al-Badr mentioned: Whoever worships other than Allāh possesses the worst of characters. Where is the character in a man who was created, provided for, favoured with blessings, gifted health and safety by Allāh, then worships and turns towards other than Allāh? For this reason, ill character is tied to shirk. Everyone who directs worship to other than Allāh has bad manners. This is because the individual’s shirk is part of his character. Rather, it [i.e. shirk] is the most atrocious aspect of his character.

Do not be deceived by some of the good dealings you may find with some of the disbelievers because it is only for worldly gains and other objectives. They do not observe good conduct hoping to be rewarded by Allāh on the meeting day.

Benefit: Be Known to Allāh

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

The Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam said:

(( تعرَّف إلى الله في الرَّخاء يعرِفكَ في الشِّدَّة ))
«Be known to Allāh in times of prosperity, and He will know you in times of adversity.»*

*Collected by Aḥmad in al-Musnad 3/307, Hannād in al-Zuhd 1/304, ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Ḥumayd in his Musnad pp. 214; al-Ṭabarānī in al-Kabīr #11243; al-Ḥākim in al-Mustadrak 3/623; al-Lālikāʾī in Iʿtiqād Ahl al-Sunnah 4/614; and al-Bayhaqī in Shuʿab al-Īmān 2/27.

Benefit: Do Not Trust the Opinions of Those Youth Who Isolate Themselves from the Elder Duʿāt and Established Salafī Centres

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Doubt #3: Do Not Trust the Opinions of Those Youth Who Isolate Themselves from the Elder Duʿāt and Established Salafī Centres

Questioner: Likewise Shaykh, when these students return from either Makkah, Riyāḍ or al-Madīnah, they return claiming salafiyyah but they isolate themselves from the established Salafīs (i.e. elders). For example, they isolate themselves from the likes of Abū Khadījah and Abū Ḥakīm. In Canada, they isolate themselves from the Salafīs at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID).

Shaykh: Do you mean they speak ill of them?

Questioner: Yes.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

The people of innovation speak ill about Ahl al-Sunnah. Abū Khadījah is from ʿAhl al-Sunnah, Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl is from Ahl al-Sunnah and Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī is from Ahl al-Sunnah. They are from the callers of Ahl al-Sunnah. This is something which is well-known.

If they err, we will tell them to retract their error, and they will retract. So why do you speak ill of them? Do you want to cause fitnah for them? Do you want to deter the people from them?

The people of Sunnah are few in number, how can you speak ill about the people of Sunnah? Those who speak against the people of Sunnah are not from them. Rather, they concur with the people of innovation.

So my dear brothers, do not speak ill of these Duʿāt, the likes of Abū Khadījah and other than him because they are from the callers of Ahl al-Sunnah. If they err, we will tell them to retract. Do not try to discredit them and ruin their reputation because this is something that hurts the People of Sunnah.  

May Allāh reward you for listening to this advice, may Allāh bless you and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.
