Audio: Guard Yourselves from the Two Extremes

  Guard Yourselves From the Two Extremes

During the seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification in January 2017, our noble and respected Shaykh, Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná delivered a very important lecture concerning the importance of clinging to the Qurʾān and the Sunnah and the methodology of the Salaf, and the importance of staying away from the two extremes of exaggeration and falling short. Instead, one should maintain a balanced path of understanding, which can only be attained through seeking knowledge.

Be from Ahl al-Sunnah...and with the Jamāʿah

  Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná́

A telelink conducted with the noble Shaykh, Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná́ al-Miṣrī (2015/03/28) encouraging the listeners to not just ascribe to the Sunnah but to be with the People of Sunnah, a path towards salvation. The lecture was part of the Points of Benefit from Sharḥ al-Sunnah, the Outstanding Book of Imām al-Barbahārī seminar. 

Benefit: "All you people (Salafis) know is manhaj, you just study Sharḥ al-Sunnah"

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

Doubt #1: "All you people (Salafis) know is manhaj, you just study Sharḥ al-Sunnah, you don't know the important matters"

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Questioner: Shaykh, our brothers are seeking advice regarding some of the Canadian youth who return from Medīnah [i.e. The Islamic University] with doubts. They spread these doubts amongst the Salafis and slander the brothers. They claim that the brothers do not know anything except Manhaj. Likewise, they belittle the books of Manhaj, the like of: Sharḥ al-Sunnah. They claim the brothers do not know Tawḥīd, Fiqh and the rulings of Wuḍūʿ, and that they do not know of the important matters.

Shaykh:...these are students who go from Canada to study in the Islāmic university, and return with this speech?

Questioner: Yes Shaykh. How do you advise us to deal with them.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

Our noble brother has asked a question on behalf of our Salafī brothers in Canada regarding some of the students who go to the Islamic University and return with speech which is contradictory to the speech of the people of Sunnah. They belittle the books of Ahl al-Sunnah and speak ill of the duʿāt of Ahl al-Sunnah. What should our position be regarding this and how should we deal with them.

I say—by the favor of Allāh—they should be advised. If they are not with the Salafis in knowledge and in action, they are to be disassociated from, abandoned, and no one should speak to them [i.e. with regards to the religion].

Likewise, I advise our Salafī brothers not to engage these people in debates nor speak to them with regards to the religion because they hold opinions which are in opposition to that which the people of Sunnah are upon, based on that which you have mentioned.

So abandon them, do not speak to them! Tell them, “you are upon your path and we are upon our path, do not bother us and do not cause us fitnah”. Do not let them speak, and do not let them in your mosques, because they may propagate their bidʿah. So prohibit them from this in a good way without harm. This is the way it should be done.

If they enter your ranks, they will cause fitnah for the youth, so beware of them. Leave them in their state and remain you in your state. Leave them to their mosques and leave us to our mosques. This is the correct way.

And may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam).

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: Do Not Trust the Opinions of Those Youth Who Isolate Themselves from the Elder Duʿāt and Established Salafī Centres

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Doubt #3: Do Not Trust the Opinions of Those Youth Who Isolate Themselves from the Elder Duʿāt and Established Salafī Centres

Questioner: Likewise Shaykh, when these students return from either Makkah, Riyāḍ or al-Madīnah, they return claiming salafiyyah but they isolate themselves from the established Salafīs (i.e. elders). For example, they isolate themselves from the likes of Abū Khadījah and Abū Ḥakīm. In Canada, they isolate themselves from the Salafīs at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID).

Shaykh: Do you mean they speak ill of them?

Questioner: Yes.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

The people of innovation speak ill about Ahl al-Sunnah. Abū Khadījah is from ʿAhl al-Sunnah, Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl is from Ahl al-Sunnah and Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī is from Ahl al-Sunnah. They are from the callers of Ahl al-Sunnah. This is something which is well-known.

If they err, we will tell them to retract their error, and they will retract. So why do you speak ill of them? Do you want to cause fitnah for them? Do you want to deter the people from them?

The people of Sunnah are few in number, how can you speak ill about the people of Sunnah? Those who speak against the people of Sunnah are not from them. Rather, they concur with the people of innovation.

So my dear brothers, do not speak ill of these Duʿāt, the likes of Abū Khadījah and other than him because they are from the callers of Ahl al-Sunnah. If they err, we will tell them to retract. Do not try to discredit them and ruin their reputation because this is something that hurts the People of Sunnah.  

May Allāh reward you for listening to this advice, may Allāh bless you and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

Doubt #2: Following up the doubts and suspicions of those who wish to split the ranks of the Salafis eventually leads to joining Ahl al-Bidʿah

Questioner: How should we advise those who are impressed and trialed by these types of people (i.e. those who spread doubts in communities)?

Shaykh: They should be warned and informed that these people have speech which is in opposition to that which Ahl al-Sunnah are upon; they belittle the books of Ahl al-Sunnah and they speak ill of the dūʿāt of Ahl al-Sunnah. These are actions of the people of innovation, so if you accompany them, you would be treading the path of the people of innovation. Therefore O youth, do not accompany them, remain with the people of Sunnah who are pure.

But if you do accompany these types of people, they will cause you much fitnah and deviate you from the Sunnah, so beware of them, as the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) mentioned:

If you see those who follow the unclear verses (of the Qurʾān), then beware of them.

So beware of them and let them stay far from us. Leave them in their way and leave us to our way. Keep to your brothers from Ahl al-Sunnah, may Allāh bless you.

Benefit: Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná on Witnessing Salafi Publications

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

The following comments are from Shaykh Ḥasan Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná during his recent visit to Salafī Publications in the UK: 

"All praise be to Allāh, mā shāʿ Allāh, they have an organisation (in da'wah); they have a maktabah salafiyyah; they have a school; a kindergarten or primary school, all these things are tremendous and all praise be to Allāh they have big numbers with them. They also have with them many mashaayikh, from amongst them Shaykh Abū Khadījah. They have knowledge, with them is knowledge. They also have others such as Shaykh Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl. All of these mā shāʿ Allāh, and many other people beside them - they are many people I met so I cannot recall their names - but those that are with them, I find that they are upon khayr (goodness). Since they have many students of knowledge with them from their likes, it is lāzim (incumbent) that they traverse upon their way, because they have indibaat (firm discipline, groundedness), and all praise is due to Allāh. They have cooperation and love for the sake of Allāh. They are from the best we have seen here from the different centres and (...) them upon steadfastness (..)."

Benefit: Showing Outward Love for the Salaf and the Scholars Whilst Attacking the Salafīs and Defaming Them?

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Doubt #7: Showing Outward Love for the Salaf and the Scholars Whilst Attacking the Salafīs and Defaming Them

Questioner: O’ shaykh, some of the youth who have not studied have become victims of these new students who have studied a short time. They [the youth who have not studied] say: How can they [i.e. meaning young students] be fitnah makers or people of innovation if they have nothing but [outward] love for the likes of Shaykh Rabīʿ, Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb, Ibn Taymiyyah and the likes of them [from the Salaf]?

So these youth have not understood how they can be regarded as fitnah makers or people of innovation and misguidance.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

The people of sunnah love the people of sunnah; the Salafīs love the Salafīs. Therefore, how can they say that we are with the likes of Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb or Rabīʿ ibn Hādī while criticising other Salafīs? Rather you are not Salafīs! The Salafī does not speak ill of the Salafī even if he was young in age, or just a beginner [i.e. recently learned about Salafiyyah] or possess little knowledge. The Salafī loves all Salafīs, whether they be new or old.

As for the innovator, he may say Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb is a great man and that Rabīʿ ibn Hādī is a great man who we love, but at the same time speaking ill of others (salafīs). This does not benefit him, rather, he is untruthful. If he was truthful, he would have love for all Salafīs, young or old, new or seasoned.  

So this is a sign of the people of innovation! They say we are with Ibn Taymiyyah whilst speaking ill of the Salafīs. They say we are with Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb whilst speaking ill of the Salafīs. They are not sincere in their ascription to Salafiyyah, rather, they are being deceptive. The (true) Salafī loves all of the Salafīs, both the new ones and the old ones. So fear Allāh and have love for the Salafīs and speak nothing but good about them. Do not speak ill of them and cause fitnah for them and for yourselves. May Allāh bless you.

Sincere Advice from Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná to Those Who Seek Division and Fitnah

Questioner: If those fitnah makers are listening O’ Shaykh, what is your advice to them?

Shaykh: If they listen to this speech of ours [i.e. accept the advice], and are upon the Sunnah, then they are from us and we are from them. What should we say to you? We want you to be with the people of Sunnah! So if you leave off innovations and the speech of the people of innovation [i.e. and from the speech of the people of innovation is speaking ill of Ahl al-Sunnah], we will be happy for you and we will become brothers for the sake of Allāh on the condition that you agree with all the principles and guidelines of Ahl al-Sunnah. Do not oppose the Sunnah!

If you return from the speech, statements and views of the people of innovation and follow the Sunnah in totality, we will be happy for you and we become stronger, because the individual gains strength firstly from Allāh and then through (the help of) his brothers. Increasing the ranks of the people of Sunnah is indeed strength for us in both this life and in the hereafter. May Allāh reward you and grant you understanding of his religion.

Benefit: The Complaint - Every Seminar Is About Manhaj

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

At the recent Determining the Straight Path seminar, Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banna was asked about a doubt that has been spread amongst the sisters: "Every conference is about manhaj and bidʿah". Of course, this is an exaggeration seeing that many of the conferences are not themed upon those topics (see Previous Events at TROID). Nonetheless, it is true that many of the lectures and topics centre upon Tawḥīd, Sunnah, Bidʿah, Wʿaláʾ wa-al-Barāʾ etc. This is because, in the grand scale of things, this is what is important to the listener. Shaykh Ḥasan explains how this is the foundation of giving daʿwah, the way of the scholars past and present. Also, that to not mention the fitnah or to not speak against the innovator would only leave the Muslims susceptible to their snare. It is also important to note that this approach (too much manhaj etc.) is often an arrow from the arrows shot by Ahl al-Ḥawā, an initial bridge to gain the ear of the Salafī. So if you trace these complaints, you find that it is someone outside of the Salafī community who has sought to embed this idea as a bridge to gaining the ear of the Salafī (as speaking openly against the Scholars, or Salafīs in general, wouldn't be accepted at such an early stage), a step along the path to diverting him/her from a manhaj of clarity - so take heed!

Benefit: The Culture of Arrogance and Entitlement That May Befool the Young Student

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Doubt #4: The Culture of Arrogance and Entitlement That May Befool the Young Student

Questioner: May Allāh show you goodness. What is your advice for those who belittle their elders in age. For example, they belittle a man who is upon the Sunnah for 30 or 40 years but he does not know the Arabic language and he does not know from the Qurʾān except a little. So they would come back from al-Madīnah and belittle them by saying: Look at them! They are 60 years of age and they do not comprehend the Arabic language. They belittle them so that they can be raised in the sight of the people.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

If an Englishman, a Frenchman or an American, who does not comprehend the Arabic language—thereafter, acknowledges Tawhīd, studies Tawḥīd, becomes enlightened with Tawḥīd, performs actions based upon Tawḥīd, accompanies the people of Tawḥīd [i.e. Ahl al-Sunnah]— is such a person blamed for not knowing the Arabic language? No!

Suḥayb al-Rūmī embraced Islām with the Messenger (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) and Salmān al-Fārisī. Neither knew the Arabic language before they came. So do we say to these people (who do not know the Arabic language) to go away and that they are not upon the Sunnah!? No!

As long as they are upon the Sunnah and they understand the Sunnah, they should not be blamed for not knowing the Arabic language. We advise them to learn the Arabic language. We do not blame them or reject them for not knowing it, rather, we are happy for them having embraced the Sunnah.

Otherwise, how would the non-Muslim embrace Islām? How would an American or a Brit embrace Islām if you question them regarding knowing the Arabic language? We should accept them and show happiness for their acceptance of Islām and as long as they are upon the beliefs and actions of the people of the Sunnah. They are with us and become our brothers from Ahl al-Sunnah. We neither reject them nor abandon them because they do not know the Arabic language.

These are from the matters which deter from the path of Allāh! They are deterring the people from the religion and from Tawḥīd. So fear Allāh with regards to your religion! May Allah guide you and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

Benefit: The Salafī (Callers, Centres etc.) Have No Manners

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

Q&A with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná: Egyptian Treasures in Refutation of Doubtful Manhaj Trolls

On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná. After greeting the Shaykh and informing him of the activities at TROID in Toronto, Canada, and exchanging pleasantries, he mentioned the following doubts that are spread nowadays in order to split the ranks of the Salafīs (i.e. in Canada, USA, UK etc.).

Doubt #5: The Salafī (Callers, Centres etc.) Have No Manners

Questioner: Shaykh, from their doubts which they use to deter people away from the Salafīs—especially the youth—is their claim: “These people do not have any manners”. By Allāh O’ Shaykh, they claim this about (a people) who have been calling to the Sunnah for 20-25 years. These claimants learned about the Sunnah from these very brothers (of which they now claim have no manners), then they travelled to al-Madīnah and Makkah for a year or two to study, and return claiming that these brothers are (actually) ignorant, ill-mannered and of poor character.

Shaykh: In the name of Allāh, all praise is due to Allāh, and may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the Messenger of Allāh, ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam.

The people of innovation despise the people of Sunnah and put blame upon them. When Ahl al-Sunnah seek proofs and evidences from the Qurʾān and Sunnah for the statements of the people of innovation, the people of innovation respond by saying: you people have no manners. This is not the case! Have they [i.e. Ahl al-Sunnah] cursed or insulted you? If you have been cursed or insulted, then we say to them [i.e those who have cursed you]: Fear Allāh and do not curse and revile the Muslims! But this is not the case.

How can you say they (the Salafīs) have no knowledge or manners? Tawḥīd is knowledge, Manhaj is knowledge and they are Salafīs! How do they not possess knowledge? They know Salafiyyah! Even if they do not know much, they know the correct ʿAqīdah and the correct Manhaj and that is the goal.

Many of the companions of the Messenger (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) were illiterate, they did not know how to read or write. Some of the companions were non-arabs but the Prophet (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) accepted them, welcomed them, taught them, and they became Salafīs and callers to the truth.

So this type of speech comes from the people of innovation. Ahl al-Sunnah do not speak ill about their brothers from Ahl al-Sunnah. Those who speak ill of the people of Sunnah are the people of innovation. So fear Allāh and be with righteous, be with Ahl al-Sunnah. Speak to Ahl al-Sunnah with good speech, make duʿāʾ for them—may Allāh reward you—and do not split the ranks of the Muslims. Stick to Ahl al-Sunnah and you will be successful in this life and the hereafter.

Guard Yourselves from the Two Extremes

  Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná

During the Toronto seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification, in January 2017, our noble and respected Shaykh delivered a very important lecture concerning the importance of clinging to the Qurʾān and the Sunnah and the methodology of the Salaf, and the importance of staying away from the two extremes of exaggeration and falling short. Instead, one should maintain a balanced path of understanding, which can only be attained through seeking knowledge.

Return Your Affairs Back to Allāh

  Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná́

A telelink from the seminar entitled Indeed this Knowledge is Dīn So Look to Who You Take Your Religion From which took place in April 2014. Shaykh Ḥasan ibn 'Abd al-Wahhāb al-Banná́ builds upon the seminar theme by explaining that guidance is but what the Companions believed in. Guidance is not a subjective field whereby one follows who he chooses, rather it is something laid out clearly for us by Allāh and his Messenger (sallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-salām).

Seminar: Bulūgh al-Marām - The Chapter of Purification

  Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná, Abū Muʿādh Taqwīm Aslam

A seminar delivered in Toronto, January 2017. Abū Muʿādh Taqwīm Aslam, a graduate of the University of Madīnah in the Faculty of Ḥadīth Sciences, delivered a series of highly beneficial lectures going through the famous book, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification, by Ḥāfiẓ ibn Hajar al-Asqalānī (raḥimahullāh), drawing upon the explanation of Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (hafiẓahullah). Bulūgh al-Marām is comprised of chapters, each of which has several narrations which are related to that particular chapter and its rulings. The opening chapter is the Chapter of Purification, which comprises of issues related to wuḍūʿ, ghuṣl, tayammum and so on, which are briefly touched upon in these series of lectures.
