Could someone please inform me who Zain Al-Aabideen is? I came across the book As-Sahifah As-Sajjidiyyah and the intro raised an eyebrow so I put the book down. I suspected some serious deviance but didn't want to make any judgement before I had clear knowledge. The book is published by Islamic Propagation Organization. Any information would be greatly appreciated, Insha'Allaah.

It seems that this is the notorious innovator, al-mubtadee' Muhammad Suroor Zainul-Aabideen. In brief, he is from the major heads of the modern-day khawaarij. His hatred for the scholars is well-known. Likewise well-known for his declaration that the all the rulers of every muslim land are apostates. He is currectly being protected by the British authorities and is under political assylum.
He is the 'ideology' behind the cameleon-like organisation based in London called 'Al-Muntadah Al-Islaamee'. He also is the head of the deviated, khaarjee publication called 'As-Sunnah'. A magazine full of the ideas of the innovators and marxist-affected political activists. This magazine is published by another organisation headed by him called 'Dar Al-Arqam' in Birmingham.
The term 'Surooree' is given to anyone who adopts the idealogy of this evil innovator.
Muhammad Suroor stated in the early nineties that the Scholars and by direct implication Ibn Baaz and Ibn al-Uthaimeen were slaves of the CIA and the Jews.
This Muhammad Suroor is truly a foul individual with foul ideas. He was raised upon the ideas of Syed Qutb and Mawdoodee. He stated that the books of Aqeedah of the Salaf are 'dry' and useless for our times. Al-Mujaddid Ibn Baaz, rahimahullah, said that this statement would only emanate from an apostate.
As for IPO, then they upon the methodology of Muhammad Suroor.
