Case Study: Researching al-Barbahārī - Don't Depend on "Shaykh" Google

  Abū ʿAbdullāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī

A case study in researching the works of the great Imām, al-Bārabahārī. The noble speaker uncovers some of the allegations of Western "academics" against this great scholar of the Salaf. Theses atheist, orientalist "intellectuals" base their attack on ridiculing the Salaf, insinuating that they are feeble-minded since they did not open up their "reasoning" to taʿwīl (figurative interpretation), like the Ahl al-Kalām (people of theological rhetoric) did. In addition, the speaker uncovers poor research, in essence, lies quoted by these "academics" to attack Imām al-Barbahārī, blind reliance on heretical figures that oppose the actual writings of al-Barbahārī. The speaker concludes by warning the Muslims not to rely on unreliable sources (via Google etc.), this not being the approach of research for the upright Muslim.

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.
