Benefit: Again? I Can't Take All This Fitnah!!

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

  Ustādh Abū Ḥākīm touches on the reality that most fitan (trials) are not realised by the people until the tail-end of their exposure. What appears to be a sudden occurrence is actually something that was brewing for some time, something that the scholars may have been addressing behind close doors. Secondly, many fall into emotional judgements, "not again", "I can't take this anymore" or other analysis devoid of knowledge or patience. The speaker explains that fitnah (trials) will come, wave upon wave, and to seek a utopian existence where no trials occur is to misunderstand the principles of the Salafī methodology, the qawāʿid (principles) are not rooted.  Lastly, he clarifies the need for knowledge, patience and forbearance in times of fitnah, explaining the characteristics of the patient astute Salafī versus the mustʿajil (hasty) reckless people who contain the lethal combination of ignorance and arrogance, taking to their blogs and other ranting platforms, increasing themselves in ignorance and harming others.

The benefit is excerpted from the lecture entitled: Ḥidāyah (Guidance) and Its Fruits, from the 2018 Summer Seminar: The Methodology of the Salaf in Times of Fitnah.

Benefit: Anonymous Doubts - Shaykh ʿUbayd: "Throw It in the Bin"

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

  A question posed to Ustādh ʿAbdu-ilāh Laḥmāmī whereby he recounts how the noble scholar, ʿUbayd al-Jābirī, dealt with an anonymous letter flung over his wall. The unsigned letter was filled with accusations against established Salafī callers. The noble scholar said: throw it in the bin.  It is noted that the so-called scales of justice of these anonymous claimants involves being silent about every enemy of the salafī daʿwah whilst being vicious towards Ahl al-Sunnah. The noble speaker challenges those with claims to bring them forth (like men), be just and upright and show your face and speak openly. Arrogant oppressors who harm themselves. 

[Q]: In this era of digital gossip and rumourmongering, some Salafis are brought rumours and slanders and listen to them or pass them on verbatim to others. When they are asked “who said this to you”, they say “there’s no need for names” or “I don’t want to say”. Can you tell us if this is the correct approach when dealing with doubts, how do the scholars handle doubts, rumours etc. that come to them without a chain?

Benefit: Answering the Doubt — Look Who Got "Dropped" Now

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

  Ustādh Abū Idrīs answers a doubt planted to imply harshness and lack of justice amongst the Salafis. The lecturer explains firstly that the true scales of justice in judging any person and his affairs is the Book and the Sunnah, not the desires of man. Secondly, it is well known in the Sunnah the ḥadīth explaining that a man will do the deeds of the people of paradise up until he is an arm's span from paradise only to turn away from it (and what is written for him overcomes him). To turn a blind eye to fitnah, to ignore the reality that people will go astray, is to trivialise the reality of this world, in this case, with a slanted agenda. The speaker reminds, if the companions did not feel safe from misguidance, then who are we? He concludes the benefit by incurring the listeners to make duʿāʾ and to strive upon the Salafī methodology, understanding that who is upon the truth and who is upon falsehood is a criterion built upon proofs, evidences and justice (not something to be mocked or trivialised).

Benefit: Defending The Daʿwah Requires Thick Skin - Be Rock Solid!!

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

  Ustādh Abū Ḥakīm sheds light on the path of those who stand up and defend the daʿwah against the enemies and opponents to the truth. He explains that they need thick skin, that they will face harm in the form of accusations, slanders including elaborate fabrications, all things that will test their mettle. He mentions that they need to be rocks, solid, able to continue upon the path of uprightness unbothered by attackers, like water off a ducks back.

Benefit: Everyone Today Is Considered a Scholar?!

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

  A brief discussion on the humility of the scholars, their fleeing from praise and grand titles. This example is then contrasted with those in the West who embrace titles, demand praise and seek recognition for everything they do, small or large. Importantly, Ustādh Abū Idrīs mentions the importance of clarity, those men who stand up in times of fitnah and are courageous, defending the truth, defending the scholars, not simply those who seek fame off the letters that follow their names.

Benefit: Further Debunking Some Doubts and Diversionary Tactics of the Muṣaʿfiqah

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

Further Debunking Some Doubts and Diversionary Tactics of the Muṣaʿfiqah  
—The Visit of Tunisian Salafis to Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī 19/08/1439 AH—


الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وعلى آله وصحبه ومن اتبع هداه، أما بعد

In implementation of the saying of Allāh, the Most High: And as for the blessing of your Lord, proclaim it. [Sūrah al-Ḍūhā, 93:11]

Allāh has granted me the opportunity to visit the Imām, al-Muḥaddith, Rabīʿ al-Sunnah, Rabīʿ ibn Hādī ibn ʿUmayr al-Madkhalī — may Allāh preserve him — at his house in the city of the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) on the night of Sunday the ninteenth of Shaʿbān, in the year one thousand four hundred and thirty-nine after the migration of al-Muṣṭafá (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) [2018/05/19]. I was accompanied by my brothers from Tunisia.

I was very delighted at the way the shaykh and his son received and welcomed us. Their doors are open wide for visitation and the claim that it is closed — by those who label others ṣaʿāfiqah — is a blazing lie.

I found him (Imām Rabīʿ) in a safe and healthy state — may Allāh preserve him upon that — holding his book, reading and researching. I sought permission to present some questions to him and he granted us permission. We were enlightened by his answers so much so that I wished to share them and perhaps Allāh will benefit others by way of it.

Question #1:

The statement that, “Shaykh Muḥammad (ibn Hādī) has evidences with him for his refutation against the students — who were labelled ṣaʿāfiqah — which Shaykh Rabīʿ has not yet been informed about, so do not be hasty against Shaykh Muḥammad” has become widespread between our brothers.

Shaykh Rabīʿ: Woe, woe, woe to them!

Right. There are evidences which I have not seen yet. Nor have the people seen them and even Muḥammad ibn Hādī has not seen them yet. This is because it does not exist at all.

The Shaykh then laughed, may Allāh preserve him upon his happiness.

Question #2:

'O Shaykh, on some Facebook pages, they have now started to speak ill of Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī and Shaykh ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī, may Allāh preserve them.

Shaykh Rabīʿ: Have they become people of innovation?! They (Shaykh ʿUbayd and Shaykh ʿAbdullāh) are from the heads of Daʿwah Salafiyyah, bārak Allāhu fīkum.

The shaykh, upon hearing this news, became upset.

Written by: Abū ʿUbaydah Walīd al-Tunīsī, Sunday at Fajr, the 19th of Shaʿbān, 1439 AH.
This sitting was witnessed by ʿUmar, the son of Shaykh Rabīʿ, as well as our Tunisian brothers ʿAbd al-Raʾūf, Ḥātim and Muḥammad ʿAlī al-Mājarī.

Benefit: How Much Do You Love Allāh and His Messenger (ﷺ)?

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

Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (حفظه الله) stated: “Your love for Allāh and His Messenger (ﷺ) must supercede your love for everything else, and only the true believer who adheres to the Book and the Sunnah will accomplish this.”

Benefit: How To Handle a Hajurite Ḥizbī

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

  A question posed to Ustādh ʿAbdu-ilāh Laḥmāmī concerning interacting with the Ḥajāwirah (the supporters of the innovator, Yaḥyá al-Ḥajūrī). The lecturer mentions some of the grave errors of al-Ḥajūrī and his followers (like Abū Fujūr) and how the Scholars have addressed him and thus how we should handle them.

[Q]: If there are brothers who follow Yaḥyá al-Ḥajūrī, how do you interact with them, they claim to be upon the Sunnah...?

Benefit: Stand United upon the Truth!

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

Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (حفظه الله) stated: “The Ummah will only be strong, successful, and respected if it adheres to the Book and the Sunnah and avoids differing.”

ولا عزة و لا سعادة و لا كرامة للأمة في هذه الدنيا والآخرة, إلا بتنفيذ هذا الأمر الواجب, وهو الاعتصام بحبل الله جميعا , والابتعاد عن التفرق

Benefit: Tap and Follow? Protect Your Religion

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

  Ustādh Abū Ḥākīm discusses the laissez-faire approach to following individuals on social networks. He discusses the lack of scrutiny exhibited in simply tapping and following everyone and anyone who shows some indication of religiosity or adds known URLs or retweets known reliable preachers. In some cases, in the past, unscrupulous characters have gamed others by creating generic, plausible names or slogans on social media and retweeted known speakers only to show their true colours once their following is large enough. The noble speaker encourages the listener to treat who you follow online according to Islamic principles of who to take knowledge from.

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: The People of Fitnah are Only Industrious in Times of Fitnah

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

  A question posed to Ustādh ʿAbdu-ilāh Laḥmāmī concerning the phenomenon of people raising their heads (and voices) during times of fitnah.

The lecturer asks: Where were you before? Where are you works (masjid, websites, publications, seminars, pamphlets etc.), your efforts to spread and defend the Sunnah? Why is it you are only busy when seeking to destroy, never active seeking to build (the daʿwah)?

He encourages the brothers to reflect on the efforts in the UK, so much activity and progress, khayr upon khayr. Don't be from those who only cause hatred and turmoil. People can say what they want to say, however the reality  is clear in the progress (of the daʿwah) around the English speaking world. The criticisms and slander do not impede our communities. On the day of judgement, we will meet the slanderers, in shāʾ Allāh, it will be good for us. You (fatān) carry on, and we will carry on in shāʾ Allāh, without any desire for praise or thanks from the people.
