Benefit: Is Abandoning al-Halabī Abandoning the Manhaj and Legacy of al-Albānī?
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
An excerpt from the recent series 'Points of Explanation from Sharḥ al-Sunnah of Imām al-Barbahārī' narrated by Dāwūd Adīb during his visit to Toronto, Canada. The supporters of al-Ḥalabī claim that abandoning ʿAlī Ḥasan al-Ḥalabī is to abandon the late Shaykh and Scholar, Imām Muḥammad Nāṣird-Dīn al-Albānī. With no outlets to respond to the concise refutations against al-Ḥalabī, they turn to rhetoric like this to appeal to the hearts of Ahl al-Sunnah. Is this claim true? Is this abandoning Imām al-Albānī's work, his manhaj, his efforts? Is Halabee today a reflection of al-Albānī? They also say that Shaykh Rabīʿ was too quick or too severe in his dealings with al-Ḥalabī but how did Shaykh Rabīʿ handle al-Ḥalabī and those like him during the last few decades? Listen and understand in shāʾ Allāh.
