Benefit: Birds of a Feather Flock Together

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

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (رحمه الله) said: “It is established that the innovator only chooses to accompany another innovator like himself, and the sunnī only chooses to accompany another sunnī like himself.”

Benefit: Concerning the Doubt - "It's Just Translations and Translators"

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

 On the 24th of Jumādá al-Awwal, 1439 (2018/02/09), we asked the noble shaykh and scholar, Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná the following questions, after updating him on the progress of the Qawāʾid al-Arbaʿ class at TROID: 

[Q]: Shaykh, what should we advise those who whisper and cast doubts about the weekly classes [at TROID and in the West at large] saying, “why should we attend these classes when we can simply read the book ourselves [i.e. it's just translation]?”

[A]: This is the way of Ahl al-Sunnah, they do not teach from their own opinions, rather they read from the works of the scholars and from their explanations, like we did, as you witnessed when you were here with us [studying] in Egypt. Pay no attention to them. Continue in your way that you are upon now, teach the people and do not pay attention to them.

[Q]: Shaykh, there is a doubt going around regarding the students in the West being mere translators (مترجمون) and not students of knowledge.

[A]: So you are telling me they have been translating for the scholars for over 20 years and they learnt nothing in this time? This is nonsense. They [who say this] need to fear Allāh.

Benefit: Differentiating Truth from Falsehood

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

Shaykh Muḥammad Amān ibn ʿAlī al-Jāmī (رحمه الله) said: "Only knowledge allows you to differentiate the callers to the truth from the callers to falsehood; consequently, if you are deprived of it, the truth becomes unclear—and Allāh’s refuge is sought—and whoever is confused by knowledge becomes lost. Therefore, you must ask continuously in your supplications for the truth to remain clear to you."

Benefit: Exposing the Plot of an Innovator

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

Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī (حفظه الله) stated: “...So he gains your trust, the innovator will [usually] speak to you about the Sunnah in your very first encounter. He will then gradually introduce you to his innovation.”

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: What Is This Term, "Al-Ṣaʿāfiqah"?

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

  Question: In our city, there a few youth who have rallied around the term "al-Ṣaʿāfiqah", they seek to gather innocent Muslims around this slogan and even create a muṣāfiqah-centric centre, can you explain what the scholars have said about it?
