Shaykh Rabee' Advises Saleem al-Hilaalee and 'Alee al-Halabee to |
Take a Firm Salafee Position
The following are some of the words of al-?Allaamah Rabee?us-Sunnah Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee where he advises Saleem al-Hilaalee and ?Alee Hasan al-Halabee to apologize, as the translator (Shakeel as-Singafooree) of their remarks against Shaykh Rabee? apologized, and he advises them to take the Salafee position that Allaah has obligated them to take with regards to the fitnah of Abul-Fitan al-Mubtil al-Mufarriq al-Mubtadi?,
?May Allaah bless you. So when this translation was spread, and some of the Salafee youth began to speak against Saleem al-Hilaalee and ?Alee Hasan ?Abdul-Hameed, I requested the supervisor of Sahab.Net to ban this speech against the two of them. And it reached me that AnaSalafi.Net, and it is Salafee inshaa? Allaah, had begun to speak about the two of them. So I called them and requested them to leave off the speech concerning those two men. And I have waited for the two of them, that they would apologize, just as the translator (Shakeel as-Singafooree) has apologized, for what they said about the difference between me and Abul-Hasan al-Mubtil (the long winded prattler), al-Mufarriq (the divider), causer of fitan, the one who has ripped the Salafiyyeen apart and he has spread fitnah, a fitnah for which we do not know any comparison. He spread this (fitnah) in the various areas of the world. And we said that we shall wait for these two men (Saleem al-Hilaalee, ?Alee Hasan al-Halabee) to take the Salafee position that Allaah has obligated them to take, in order to give victory to His Religion, and to uphold the truth, and to be witnesses for Allaah though it, as Allaah the Blessed and Exalted said,
"O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allaah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin." [Sooratun-Nisaa` 4:135]
And we have remained waiting for them to apologize and to raise high the truth. Since the Scholars of Yemen were patient and remained steadfast for a long time with regards to the trial of Abul-Hasan, until they could not do that any longer, and finally they took one position towards this man (Abul-Fitan al-Mubtil al-Mufarriq al-Mubtadi?) with regards to his going out against Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah. So they warned against him and his fitnah. And the Scholars of al-Madeenah showed kindness towards Abul-Hasan, hoping that he would return back to the correct view, yet he did not increase except in arrogance, disease and spreading of fitan. So they had no choice but to seek the truth and the trial remained open in front of them to explain the issues of misguidance in this man which have not ended. So he has many corrupt principles and many of his actions are evil and from them is that he has ripped the Salafiyyeen apart. And there is no fitnah greater than that. So if they want to unite the word of Salafiyyeen, then let them favour the precedence of their brothers in emaciating this man, al-Mubtil (the long winded prattler), the source of great fitnah. So they must contradict it (the fitnah) with the truth until this fitnah goes away from the chests of the Believers. Since it has been sitting in the chests of the youth and it has been wearing them down and it has been filling their hearts with resentment and controversies and it has been pre-occupying their positions. By Allaah, we have not known a fitnah like this one. It is a fitnah for which thirty five children were enlisted, they were made out to be major Scholars to be thrust against the Major Imaams and to overthrow them and the leaders of tribes argued about it. And Abul-Hasan is moving with hizbiyyah and devastation inside the Kingdom and in Yemen. This is a fitnah for which have never seen a comparison. And we have never seen an evil caller moving the way that he moves. This is the custom of telephone calls, which are made in the eastern and western parts of the world. As it has reached me from the individuals who were called, and they are truthful, and whoever claims that they are liars, then he is a liar. And he is to be known with lying and he is to be known as a chameleon. So the man has been plotting from the beginning.
There were sixteen people when he and I were speaking privately. And I pretended to be ignorant about his deviations and I displayed gentleness to him so that he might return to the correct path. Indeed, this man introduced himself. Rather, introductions were made for him by way of speech which it was not possible to escape from its spreading. So he spread it, but Allaah the Blessed and Exalted has promised to give victory to His Religion, and He has subdued his fitnah. And He shall continue to subdue his fitnah until it is crushed, as He crushed the fitan of other than him. I ask and I supplicate to Allaah the Blessed and the Exalted that He removes his fitnah and that He brings unity into the hearts of the Salafiyyeen in every place. Since, they were upon love, unity, brotherhood, co-operation and mutual advising to the truth in the eastern part of the world and the western part. Then he came with this fitnah which has not served anyone besides the enemies of Islaam and the misguided ahzaab which use this da?wah as a cover. So it has served them and supported them. Why? Since, if he was upon the truth, he would have waged war against them. However, when it became clear to them that he is al-Mubtil (the long winded prattler) and that he is the enemy of their enemies from ad-Da?watus-Salafiyyah, they aided him and helped him. So this aided the Takfeeriyyoon, and the people of misguidance...?
COMMENTS: These were the bulk of the words that al-?Allaamah Rabee?us-Sunnah had to say after Shakeel as-Singafooree repented for translating he words of Saleem al-Hilaalee and ?Alee Hasan ?Abdul-Hameed against Shaykh Rabee? in England. We hope that both Saleem al-Hilaalee and ?Alee Hasan al-Halabee will follow suite and repent as well for their comments against Shaykh Rabee?, and that they will take a firm Salafee position during this fitnah of Abul-Fitan al-Mubtil al-Mufarriq al-Mubtadi?.
