Benefit: ʿAbdullāh ibn Masʿūd on Sticking to the Elder Scholars

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

ʿAbdullāh ibn Masʾūd said: The people shall not cease to be upon goodness so long as their knowledge is acquired from their elders. But if they take (their knowledge) from the younger ones and the evil ones, they will be destroyed.

Dividing the Scholars into the 'Harsh Group' and the 'Tolerant Group'

  Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī

A very important question answered by Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī on the 'scheme' of those who claim the scholars are of two types/groups - the lenient, easy, balanced group and the harsh, severe, critical group. An unveiling of those who hide behind the mantra, 'al-Albānī, Ibn Bāz, ʿUthyamīn' or the slogan 'I prefer the manhaj in daʿwah of Shaykh so-and-so over Shaykh so-and-so.' A reflection upon the scholars of the Salaf, their stance towards bidʿah, the mubtadiʿīn, and whether they were gentle with them; a look at the greatest of scholars in the modern era such as Imām al-Albānī, Imām Ibn Bāz and al-ʿUthaymīn and their stance towards criticising Ahl al-Bidʿah; and a timeline of modern-day innovators and their trials (ʿAbd al-Khāliq, ʿAʿrūr, al-Maʿribī and al-Ḥalabī), one by one, their silence about Ahl al-Bidʿah and their attacks upon Ahl al-Sunnah and how they pulled so many away from the Salafī Manhaj with false principles wrapped in perfumed garments - and without a doubt - they are the true causers of division.

Fleeing from Fitnah

  Shaykh Muḥammad al-Ḥamūd al-Najdī

A prohibition against being hasty and forward, and an encouragement to cling to the scholars in the time of fitnah.

Glorify Allāh by Respecting the Rulers and the Scholars!

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

Shaykh Sulaymān al-Ruḥaylī (حفظه الله) said: "Mankind will continue to be upon goodness as long as they revere the rulers and the scholars. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: 'Glorifying Allāh involves respecting the aged Muslim, the just ruler, and the one who never forgets the Qurʾān after memorising it and is moderate when pronouncing its letters.' [Reported by Abū Dāwūd, and Shaykh al-Albānī authenticated it.] Therefore, respecting the rulers is legislated as there are numerous Aḥādīth to support this. Consequently, revering them is from the foundations of Ahl-Sunnah wa-al-Jamā‘ah."

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.

On Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah


A brief biography of Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymīyyah, along with replies to many of the doubts that the enemies of Ahl al-Sunnah seek to cast upon this noble Scholar of Islām

Respect for the Scholars

  Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān

An invitation to have respect for the Scholars as they deserve of us, and an un-covering of the undergarments of Salmān al-ʿAwdah and Safar al-Ḥawālī with respect to their filthy statements against the Scholars of the Ummah.

The Danger of Those Who Sport the Garments of Ahl Sunnah Only to Lead the Salafīs Astray

  Abū Khadījah

A lecture from the 2008 Toronto leg of the Holding on to Islām seminar. The one who destroys your house from the inside is worse and more dangerous than the one who tries to destroy your house from the outside; the same is true for the people of bidʿah who claim to be Salafī, who quote from some of the Salafī scholars etc., yet their aim is to destroy our ʿaqīḍah and our manhaj, leading us into the Fire. How should the Salafīs deal with these people? This lecture incorporates the works of Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madhkhālī, and other Salafī scholars of today. Ustadh  Abū Khadījah also takes examples from the lives of the Ṣaḥābah and the scholars of the past.

The Rights of the Scholars

  Shaykh Abū Anas Ḥamad al-ʿUthmān

As is well known from the authentic ḥadīth, the Messenger of Allāh mentioned that, 'He is not from us who…does not give the Scholar his rights.' So listen to his knowledge filled discourse and find out exactly what the rights of the Scholars are.

The Trickery and Deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah

  Abū Khadījah ʿAbd al-Wāḥid

A brilliant in-depth lecture regarding the trickery and deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah, and an admonition against the likes of misguided individuals such as Usāmah al-Qūsī, Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Muḥammad al-Maghrāwī, Yāsir Qaḍhī and Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī.

Our noble brother, Abū Khadījah, goes into detail concerning the importance of having love for the Salaf and the Scholars of the Sunnah, both past and present. Having love and allegiance for them is a sign of one's īmān, and there is not a true believer except that they love these scholars who deserve our total love, respect and allegiance due to their diligence and striving in serving the Sunnah and conveying its true understanding to all corners of the earth.

The Salafī does not harbour ill thoughts towards the Salafis and the Scholars, and we do not fall into the foolishness of those who speak against them and claim they are just men from amongst men. No doubt they were men, but you, O Hizbī are not like them, and your understanding is not like their understanding, and their level is not the same as your level, so do not deceive yourself. They were a people who strived in upholding the Sunnah and did not sell their manhaj for a cheap price. You are obligated to follow them in their understanding, to follow the best of generations, but they are not obligated to you in anything. These Imāms conveyed the message of Islam which remained throughout generations, and it is from their superiority that they are quoted generations after their death, and many people have been guided to Islam and the Sunnah due to their clarification of the truth and their refutation of misguidance.

There will be groups present within every generation who will have hatred for the aʾimmah, breaking off and opposing them instead of allying with them, and these are from the distinguishing signs of Ahl al-Bidʿah. This hatred and opposition nullify the perfection of Imān due to the saying of the Messenger concerning the one who loves for the sake of Allāh then he has perfected īmān.

Imām Aḥmed (raḥimahullāh) mentions: "All praise is for Allāh, who in every age and interval between the Prophets, raises a group from the people of knowledge who call the misguided to guidance, yet patiently bearing ill-treatment and harm. With the Book of Allāh they bring life to the dead and by the Light of Allāh they give sight to the blind, and how many a person killed by Iblīs have they revived, how many people astray and wandering have they guided, and how beautiful has been their effect upon the people, and how vile the people have been towards them."

Allāh aided these lions of the Sunnah and raised the banner of Islam and Sunnah by way of them. So whoever from these times hates the likes of Ibn Taymīyyah, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb, Shaykh Ibn Bāz and al-Albānī, then his manhaj is known and it is a sign that he is upon the path bidʿah. As for us, then we have warā and maḥabbah for these scholars due to their striving.

Today we have many present amongst us who adorn themselves with the garb of Salafīyyah, yet beneath this beautiful attire lies a devil in wait. They are like a sponge that will soak you up and squeeze you out into the ranks of al-Ikhwān al-Muslimīn, without you even realising it.

From them are the likes of the Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī al-Amrīkī, an individual known for his alliance with organisations such Jamʿiah Iḥyā al-Turāth and the various Jamʿīyyāt in Britain and elsewhere which the Scholars have refuted and warned against. A defender and translator for the likes of Abu Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Maghrawī, Usāmah al-Qūsī and other than them, praising the likes of al-Qaradawī and Zakir Naik. A man who wages war against Ahl al-Sunnah, but holds hands and skips alongside Ahl al-Bidʿah.  

There are those who present themselves with the Sunnah but are upon deviance and opposition, like Yāsir Qadhī who signed the Pledge of Unity, alongside signatories who are from the Shiʿah, Sūfīyyah, Jahmīyyah, grave worshippers and callers to shirk. People whom Yasir Qadhī claims that sitting with them increases him in īmān. A man who has claimed to study al-ʿAqīdah al-Waṣiṭīyyah, and has translated Kitāb al-Tawḥīd. In truth, this is merely proof against him and not for him, since what benefit did he attain when he sits, allies and condones the very people who hold the beliefs which the subject matter of these books refute. He revels in the label of 'Shaykh' and 'Scholar' whilst cutting the people off from the real scholars under the pretence that they are not connected to the West, and do not live in the same world as we do. Clearly, Yāsir Qadhī lives in a very distorted and deluded version of the world we live in. These individuals like Yāsir Qadhī, Bilāl Philips, and Abū Muslimah wish to place a fortress between you and the ʿAqīdah of the Salaf and our noble scholars such as  Shaykh Rabīʿ and Shaykh ʿUbayd (hafiẓahumallāh). In their cooperation and alliance with the people of innovation, they have left off the enjoining of good and forbidding of evil, and this is due to their greater goal of political authority and status in the West.

The path of truth is long and its people are few, so don't be deceived by the oceans of opposition you receive, instead remain firm and steadfast upon it with the people of ḥaqq.
