Are You Pleased with Yourselves?!

Al-ʿAllāmah Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī

A warning against those who seek fame amongst the misguided people, while betraying their obligation to Allāh.

Are you pleased with yourselves that you are callers to falsehood, defending falsehood and its people?

Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī

Are you pleased with yourselves that you are greatly respected amongst the people of shirk and bidʿah, whilst it is obligatory to boycott and free yourselves from their likes, seeking closeness to Allāh (by way of this)?

Are you pleased with yourselves, that you follow the legislation of one prone to error whilst abandoning the legislation of the infallible [i.e. Muḥammad (ﷺ)], despite Allāh’s testification of his infallibility? Allāh mentions:

وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ (٣) إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْيٌ يُوحَىٰ (٤)
Nor does he speak of [his own] desire. (3) It is not but a revelation revealed. (4)
[Al-Najm, 54:3-4]

Are you pleased with yourselves that you are followers of other than the path of the believing Mūwaḥidīn, whilst you recite the statement of Allāh (Subḥānahū wa-Taʿālá)? Allāh says:

وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger [(Muhammad (ﷺ)] after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers’ way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell — what an evil destination.
[Al-Nisāʾ, 6:115]
