|Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah |
Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin Ibn Naasir Aali-'Ubaykaan (hafidhahullaah) said:
|Ibn 'Abbaas (radiallaahu 'anhumma) narrated that Allaah's Messenger (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: |
|Blessings are with your major ones (the scholars). (Ibn Hibban, al-Khateeb, al-Qadhaa'ee; al-Haakim said 'sahih', according to conditions of Bukhari, but did not record it.)|
Al-Manaawee (rahimahullaah) said in "Faydh al-Qadeer," explaining this hadeeth:
|Blessings are with your major ones, those who have 'ilm and experience of affairs, thereby attaining many rewards. So sit with them so that you may take examples from their views and be guided by their guidance. (3/220)|
However, unfortunately, these people - the Khawaarij - influence others' understanding to the extent that they believe the likes of Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez ibn Baaz and other scholars to be "disbelievers."
They only breed such understanding after knowing full well the soundness of the shaikh's methodology and that he has remained upon the same methodology of his teachers, Shaikh Muhammad ibn Ibraheem and those before him up to Muhammad ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab taking from Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibnul Qayyim, back to the four Imams, back to the Salaf of this Ummah, back to the tabi'een, back to the sahaaba themselves - this is the correct and sound manhaj.

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk
If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
