|Naseehah of the Two Shaykhs, Ahmad an-Najmee and Zayd al-Madkhalee to Shaykh Faalih to Return to the Truth Affirmed by Shaykh Rabee` al-Madkhalee |
To the esteemed, and honourable brother, the Shaykh, Faalih bin Naafi` al-Harbee, may Allaah grant us and him success in what His pleasure lies, and may He make us from the callers to Him in the manner with which He is pleased:
As Salaamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuhu
To proceed: Then it has become apparent to us during the contention and advice that has been completed between you and Shaykh Rabee` bin Haadee al-Madkhalee that something in the souls has occurred between you, and we let you know, O honourable brother, that we do not love that there should be any breach between you or (any) mutual harm on account of words that only result in sin and split the rank that is established upon the way of the Salaf (and as a result of which) the disputants of the Sunnah rejoice about us.
And whatever there is of ambiguity or error, then the Scholars will debate it, and the truth is only one, it does not divide (i.e. vary) with the one who manifests the truth, for it is obligatory to be followed because the truth is the leader (i.e. the guide) of the Believers, and it is a legislative goal for the believer.
So if you have sufficed with what Shaykh Rabee` has explained to you in his (written) advice and directions (of advice), then all praise is to Allaah, and let all of us unite upon al-birr and at-taqwaa and the methodology of guidance, with the correct understanding. And whatever observations there might be upon anything from the directions of Shaykh Rabee` al-Madkhalee to you, then record it with your own pen, and put it in front of three from you brothers and they are Shaykh Saalih as-Suhaymee, and Shaykh `Ubayd al-Jaabiree, and Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee al-Madkhalee, and I request from them with every ease and assurity that they speak the word of truth, with its evidence. And it is true that those three are from acting Scholars and righteous men, and we do not purify anyone over and above Allaah's (estimation of them). However we speak with what we know and we hold back from that which we do not.
And when the truth becomes clear along with its evidence, then there is no room for anyone to argue about it, rather it is obligatory to submit to it and to be pleased with it. And we inform you that what Shaykh Rabee` has affirmed is the truth, and the truth is obligatory to be taken and followed.
And be eager, O our honourable brother, to accept this truth and to return the affairs to what you were upon (previously) - you and Shaykh Rabee` and the remaining Salafee brothers with you - of agreement upon the truth, and the safety of the hearts from everything which clouds the purity of the brotherhood of faith and (clouds) the unity of the rank upon the best manhaj, that is the manhaj of the Righteous Salaf, both in the creed and legislation (`aqeedah and sharee`ah).
May Allaah grant us and you and all of the callers to Allaah and all of the Muslims, success in truthfulness, truth and in sincerity in everything that we bring or leave. Aameen.
Your two brothers
