Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee on the Islaamic University of al-Madeenah
The Imaam of al-Jarh wa Ta'deel speaks a just word about the Islaamic University, referring to it as a 'fortress of Islaam' and clarifies the issue of Hizbees who have attempted to infiltrate into this noble institute of learning.  The Shaykh's words serve a s timely consolation to those who have heard rumours intended to destroy the reputation of this noble institute!

  Below is a transcript of the translation for the audio above.

The noble Scholar, al-'Allaamah Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee said,


So the Islaamic University was established for lofty goals and for a noble objective.  And it is to educate whosoever is able to be admitted into it upon the Book of Allaah and upon the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah and upon the manhaj of the Salafus-Saalih.  And it was established under the supervision of outstanding Scholars from the major Scholars of the Sunnah from inside the Kingdom and outside of it.  And at the head of these outstanding personalities was Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Ibraaheem - rahimahullaah - the muftee of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn Baaz - rahimahullaah.

And the first one who accepted leadership of it was al-'Allaamah, ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz - rahimahullaah.  And people came to the University from all areas of the Islaamic world.  And I was from the first ones to be affiliated with it and I graduated from it and I taught there for years up until I was retired.

So its manhaj is a unique manhaj that is established upon the Book of Allaah and upon the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah.  And its objective, as I have already mentioned to you, is a noble objective.  It is to educate our Muslim sons upon the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger and the manhaj of the Salafus-Saalih, except that some of the people of innovation and hizbiyyah have infiltrated it.  So they have corrupted whosoever they were able to corrupt in the Islaamic Univeristy.  And I ask Allaah to grant success to those who are responsible for protecting this University from these ones who conspire to corrupt the students at this University and its graduates.

I encourage entering into the Islaamic University and I warn against these conspirators from the Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen and other than them because they receive the academic scholarships given to foreigners who come to the Islaamic University.  From the moment their feet touch al-Madeenah, they begin to warn against the Scholars of the Kingdom and against their manhaj and they corrupt whoever they are able to corrupt.  And whoever is saved from them is saved.

So I advise studying there, but I warn against these ones who cause corruption in the earth.  When the students reach them, from any country, from Ethiopia, or from Egypt or from any country, it is upon them to warn against these wicked and corrupt groups who oppose with their actions the objectives and goals of the Islaamic University, for which it was established.  And they have corrupted many.  And I spoke about this at the University, I said: Many of the students have come to this country while they are carrying corrupt beliefs.  And they study at the secondary and university levels and they may reach the higher studies.  Despite that, they return with their corrupt beliefs.  This is something that is currently happening, it is something that is known from the Indians who have bigoted partisanship towards the Hanafee madhhab and the Maatureedee madhhab.  And there have remained those who have remained - and the praise is for Allaah - those who either their origin was Salafee, or those who learned Salafiyyah from their studies in the Islaamic University and its rightly-guided manhaj.

I say once again and I repeat that the Islaamic University is a strong university and a strong fortress of Islaam.  And it is befitting that the students of knowledge to drink 'aqeedah and manhaj from it.  And I advise and I warn  those who want to cause corruption in the earth to fear Allaah with regards to themselves and to not cause corruption in the earth after it has been rectified and to not cause corruption in this University.

So the Ummah of Islaam is not in need of anything as much as it is need of the manhaj of the Salaf, which is exemplified in the manhaj of this Islaamic University.  So it educates the youth with a correct tarbiyah upon the Book of Allaah and upon the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah and upon rejection of ta'assub (bigoted allegiance) and rejection of desires.  Rejection of ta'assub towards madhaahib and rejection of ta'assub towards 'aqaa`id and manaahij.  The University educates one upon these foundations.

So whoever Allaah wants good for, then let him study in this University and let him graduate inshaa` Allaah with its 'aqeedah and its manhaj, spreading the Sunnah and its sciences in his country.

I ask Allaah the Blessed and Exalted to grant success to those who are responsible for this University by protecting it from the plots of the plotters and to grant success to the students to accept the truth that is exemplified in the manaahij of this University, to accept the truth and to take it and to spread it in their countries or in other countries or wherever they dismount and disembark.  I ask Allaah to bring these hopes to reality.  Indeed, our Lord hears the du'aa`.

wa sallallaahu 'alaa nabiyyinaa Muhammad wa 'alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam

And this meeting occurred on the second day of the month of Safar, from the year 1428H.  And whosoever attributes to me other than this, then he has lied and slandered.

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee Defends the Islaamic University of al-Madeenah

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee Defends the Islaamic University of al-Madeenah - The Shaykh defends the Islaamic University of al-Madeenatun-Nabawiyyah against those who accuse it of being a Hizbee University.  The Shaykh takes the moderate and reasonable path when he clarifies that he does not speak like the extremists who say that there is no hizbee found therein, but that any hizbee who may be there is unable to speak out in the presence of Ahlus-Sunnah who yield influence there.  And he declares that the one who declares it a Hizbee University has openly proclaimed his own ignorance.
