A Clear and Decisive Answer Concerning ʿAbd al-Munʿim al-Lībī, Chairman of QSS

al-ʿAllāmah Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī

A clarification from Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī concerning the ḥizbī, Ḥalabī defender, ʿAbd al-Munʿim, chairman of QSS.

Stated Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī, “So then, right now, if there is anyone from the Qurʾān and Sunnah Society who wants to return to the truth, then the way is open in front of them, may Allāh bless you.  And our brother (someone specific who knows who he is), if he wants to return from what he was upon, then, “Ahlan wa sahlan” (he is welcome).”

The First Question: ʿAbd al-Munʿim al-Lībī, the chairman of the Qurʾān and Sunnah Society, now lives in our city, in Toronto.  He is also moving his organization here as well. We heard that you have warned against him and his organization, however, they claim that this is not true. So we are seeking clarification from you regarding this man, ʿAbd al-Munʿim al-Lībī, and his organization, as they are now in our city.

The Second Question: Some of the followers of ʿAbd al-Munʿim are saying that one of the Jordanian students of knowledge came here (Toronto) with a letter from you, assigning them to reconcile what is between the Salafīs and ʿAbd al-Munʿim and his organization. Is this correct?

Note: After these doubts were dispelled, the followers of QSS then began to slander Shaykh Rabīʿ claiming he has “sugar” (i.e. he is diabetic and therefore emotionally erratic), spiraling deeper and deeper into their hatred for some of the Salafī mashāyikh, until they reached a point of blindly defending the innovator, ʿAlī Ḥasan al-Ḥalabī. Their example is a pointed one, toward those who turn against the scholars, their bidʿah will grow until it becomes distant from Ahl al-Sunnah. They are now a people who do not even discuss the term ‘Salafīyyah’ with any regularity and instead work alongside al-Maghrib influenced centers.
