Shaikh Rabee' on Enemies' Latest Ploy of Dividing the Scholars into the "Harsh" Group and the "Tolerant" Group - Part 1  

Shaikh Rabee' bin Hadee 'Umayr Al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) was asked the following question after a recent lecture he delivered in Masjid Al-Qiblatayn, Medinah.

Question: A novel way of putting people off the scholars has appeared, which is to categorize the scholars into those who are harsh and those who are lenient (tolerant), and sometimes [the people who claim this] say the scholars of one region are harsh and those of another are tolerant. What is your guidance on this?

Answer by Shaikh Rabee' bin Hadee 'Umayr Al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah):

quote:
This is one of the methods of the enemies of the Salafi Manhaj. Amongst the Salaf there were those who were lenient but they never used to hold it against each other. Rather, they used to respect those who were harsh against the followers of falsehood. You have [for example] Hammaad bin Salamah (rahimahullaah). Imam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) used to praise him greatly and suspect the religion of anyone who spoke against him [saying],
quote:
Whoever speaks against Hammaad bin Salamah, then suspect his religion because he [Hammaad bin Salamah] was harsh against the People of Bid'ah.
Being harsh against the people of falsehood used to be a virtue according to the Salaf. But since the People of Bid'ah and misguidance have come and taken over the minds of many of the youth, very regrettably, being harsh against the people of falsehood has become a "vice and a defect," and being relaxed and flexible [with them] has become a "distinction and an honorable trait."

[You must] adhere to the Salafi Manhaj and take the Salafi position towards the People of Bid'ah. It is not wrong to [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=10127]call them to Allaah[/url] wisely and through good exhortation. If they respond, thanks and praise are for Allaah. If they do not, there is no wrong in being harsh against them and...

The Salaf were harsh against them, and [in some cases] ordered some of them to be executed... [The Salaf] wrote many works [in refutation of them]. What do you say about them? Read Al-Sharee'ah of Al-Ajurree, read Al-Sunnah of 'Abdullah bin Ahmad, read Al-Sunnah of Al-Khallaal. Those [who decry being harsh towards the people of falsehood] have not read these works, they have not read these works and seen the position taken by the Salaf towards the People of Bid'ah and deviation.

What should our stance be towards the Jahmiyah, what should our stance be towards the [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=8866]Raafidah[/url] and what should our stance be towards their followers and supporters? Many who associate themselves with the Salafi Manhaj got influenced by these currents and became compromised and began to fight against the callers to truth and the Sunnah [by accusing them of being] "harsh."  

I have written [refutations], and I am the harshest one. I wrote during the time of Ibn Baaz, Al-Albaanee and Al-'Uthaymeen. I refuted the [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=23&Topic=8548&sortby=desc]Ikhwaan Al-Muslimoon (the Muslim "Brotherhood")[/url], [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=6&Topic=2616&srow=21&erow=40]Al-Tableegh (Tablighi Fircat)[/url] and all the People of Bid'ah and those scholars supported these writings and supported Rabee'. None of them opposed him and none of them said... Al-Albaanee said a statement praising Rabee', "[Shaikh Rabee'] is the bearer of the standard of [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=7515]Jarh and Ta'deel[/url] in this era." Hmm, what do you think about this? Then [Al-Albaanee] said [Rabee'] has some harshness in him. These compromisers rejoiced and flew with the quote [spreading it everywhere]. I contacted Shaykh Al-Albaanee and said, "Why o Shaikh do you accuse me of being harsh?" He said, "By Allaah this is what I personally think." I said, "O Shaikh, this harms the Salafi Da'wah and it harms me." So the Shaykh apologized - rahimahullah. Shortly afterwards, I sent him [my book] Al-'Awaasim mimmaa fee Kutub Sayed Qutb min Al-Qawaasim, which is the harshest book I have written. [Shaykh Al-Albaanee] read it and supported it because it was the truth, and said:
quote:
You have spoken the truth, so continue and do even more o Shaykh Rabee.
Or words to that effect - rahimahullaah.

Ibn Baaz never... He used to say, "Refute the People of Bid'ah with wisdom and good exhortation." He never used to oppose me, and by Allaah he wrote to me saying, "It has reached me that you have refuted Al-Mawdoodee - rahimahullaah - and I hope you can send me a copy of this refutation." He never used to object. Shaikh Al-Tuwayjiree used to refute and refute harshly the People of Bid'ah, and Shaikh Ibn Baaz used to support him and recommend his books. Hmm, he never once said - and [Shaykh Al-Tuwayjiree also] used to refute Al-Albaanee - may Allaah bless you... Shaikh Ibn Baaz never silenced him, he would never say to him, 'be silent,' he would never say, 'you are harsh,' may Allaah bless you. Al-Fawzaan used to refute the People of Bid'ah during the time of Shaykh Ibn Baaz, and he never said, 'be silent,' may Allaah bless you. Rather he would support him... There are so many writings [Shaykh Ibn Baaz] recommended of Shaykh Al-Tuwayjiree and he praised my books and my methodology (manhaj) - rahimahullaah. All of these Mashaaikh used to be supportive.

This is the manhaj in which we have become weak. We are not on the same level as we used to be during their time; rather we have become weak but despite this they say we are "harsh," and they say Ibn Baaz [was not like you]. By Allaah, Ibn Baaz used to fight the People of Bid'ah and support those who fought them and praise those who fought them - may Allaah bless you. Bring me one proof that Ibn Baaz silenced one person who refuted the People of Bid'ah. Did he silence Al-Fawzaan? Did he silence Al-Tuwayjiree? Did he silence Rabee'? Did he silence Al-Albaanee? Not one of them. Likewise, all the scholars used to support and aid those who speak the word of truth and refute what is wrong.

[People] asked Shaykh Al-'Uthaymeen, they said, 'People say such-and-such about Shaykh Rabee'.' He said:
quote:
This is because he clarifies the condition of their icons and leaders.
And he supported me time after time...

After Ibn Baaz, Al-'Uthaymeen and Al-Albaanee had gone, they said, 'these [remaining Shaiks] are harsh.' By Allaah they lied, by Allaah they were only seizing the opportunity. The death of these scholars was an opportunity for them to pounce on the Salafi Manhaj and upon its followers, tearing them apart with principles and methodologies of the falsest and most corrupt kind. They tore apart the Salafi youth across the world and planted in their minds [this idea] that this group is harsh and extreme. How can this be..? The scholars never criticized [the scholars who used to refute.] How can we assert the Salafi manhaj [in this way] when [the scholars] were the harshest against the People of Bid'ah?

Either we reject the Manhaj of the Salaf and follow the People of Bid'ah or we say we are Salafis and we follow the path of [those Salaf] in taking the decisive and resolute positions towards the People of Bid'ah. Yes, call to Allaah with proofs and conclusive arguments, explain and clarify; if there is a heretic in front of you - a Raafidee, [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=6534]Soofee[/url], [url=http://alifta.org.sa/Fatawa/FatawaChapters.aspx?View=Tree&NodeID=249&PageNo=1&BookID=8]grave-devotee[/url], whatever. Call to Allaah with wisdom and good exhortation, and with proofs and conclusive arguments.

But when we come to write about the beliefs of the Raafidah, amongst whom there is lying, sinfulness and extremism, we don't mention these things. We come to the Soofees, amongst whom there is lying, sinfulness and extremism, but we don't mention these things... If you mention this lying and treachery and sinfulness they say you are "harsh." A Soofee, Ikhwaanee...[url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?forum=31&topic=10964]Hizbee Tahreeri[/url] who transgresses, lies, betrays, who has problems that Allaah has explained, which have been explained [audio cut off]. [The scholars of the Salaf used to say:] 'So and so is a liar, he is like this and he is like that.' May Allaah bless you; they used to state it clearly.

quote:
Look in the books of Jarh and Ta'deel, in the books of 'Aqeedah, we cannot reach the level [the Salaf reached] in their [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=16&Topic=10331]Jihaad against the People of Bid'ah and Shirk[/url]. By Allaah we cannot reach that level now. Why? Because now there stand against us those who associate themselves with the Salafi Manhaj [but] fight against this opposition [to the People of Bid'ah] and describe it as "harshness."


We ask Allaah to unite the hearts [upon the truth], and I advise the youth - and by Allaah, I have tens, rather, hundreds of advices to the Salafi youth on this - I advise them to unite together and be brothers to each other and employ the loftiest manners and behavior when dealing with each other. May Allaah bless you. They should employ patience, forbearance and wisdom. In my lessons, lectures and tele-links, in which they call me from every place, by Allaah I encourage them to come together. But these people who have stood in opposition to this Manhaj are the ones - by Allaah - who tear the Salafi youth apart across the world, in the East and West. They tear them apart and plant within them false beliefs, and then accuse us of causing "schism." By Allaah, I try to unite the youth together, and my books and recordings - which have been transcribed - all bear witness that I try to unite the youth.  

In Algeria, Morocco, in Yemen, Sham (Syria, Jordan, Palestine), in all places, I try to unite the youth who I know to be Salafis, I try to bring them together in every way I can, but they [the opponents to this manhaj] cause splits and division. Never is the voice of schism and division raised except that they support that sinful voice - may Allaah bless you. We free ourselves in front of Allaah from what these people slander us with.
quote:
I have already said to you, wisdom is indeed needed, but...about the Raafidah, and People of Bid'ah, you clarify their condition, do not wrong them or lie about them, but explain the reality of their affair.
Medinah, 28 Shawwal 1431 / 7 October 2010

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah
Amma ba'd

Student of knowledge 'Abdul-Ilah Lahmami, who was in attendance at this lecture, filled in some of those dots [...] with the following benefit, ma sha` Allaah:

quote:
Likewise, he [Shaikh Rabee'] said, why did Shaikh al-Albaanee rahimahullaah say that statement [concerning harshness] after saying that he [Shaikh Rabee'] was the flag barrier of Jarh wa Ta'deel? It was because [of] 'Adnan 'Urur going to him and not mentioning all the errors that Shaikh Rabee' had  on [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=10219]Sayyid Qutb[/url], and [falsely] showed Shaikh Albaanee that Shaikh Rabee' was being "harsh" towards [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=10219]Sayyid Qutb[/url].

It wasn't until Shaikh Rabee' sent Shaikh Al-Albaanee rahimahullaah his books clarifying the errors of [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=10219]Sayyid Qutb[/url] that it was clear to Shaikh Al-Albaanee rahimahullaah that Shaikh Rabee' spoke the truth regarding [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=10219]Sayyid Qutb[/url]. In a phone conversation, Shaikh Al-Albaane rahimahullaah said to Shaikh Rabee', 'I excuse myself from that statement (of you being shadeed (harsh)).' Then, Shaikh Al-Albaanee rahimahullaah wrote down the famous quote signed by him [stating] 'everything you have said on Sayyid Qutb is true.'
  

__________________________________________________________________________

May Allaah reward 'Abdul-Ilah.

May Allaah have mercy on (and preserve those living among) our righteous scholars, and have mercy and reward their righteous students. Ameen.

The above situation is yet another example of the following:

Amma ba'd  

Shaikh Rabee' Refutes those who describe Salafees with having "Harness" and "Extremism", the continuation and completion of Shaikh Rabee's Tremendous Benefit to a Question on the 28th of Shawwaal, 1431H, wa lillaah il Hamd

quote:
Let me finish answering this question about 'harshness.' 'Abd Al-Rahman was my colleague, 'Abd Al-Rahman 'Abd Al-Khaliq was my colleague at the Islamic University until I graduated in 1384H. Due to some circumstances, he went to Kuwait. He used to call to Allaah and we used to encourage him and we used to be happy that he was active in da'wah to the Salafi Manhaj. But then he began to change; bit by bit he began to change. So I used to advise him; I would write to him with kind advice. He would come to Medinah and stay here in the area of Al-Qiblatayn... I would take him with me in my car, dropping him off at the University, taking him to my house. I kept advising him and advising him, until the advice continued for around 12 years - may Allaah bless you. I advised him until when he went beyond all bounds and started to attack the scholars and mock them etc. I refuted him.

After him came 'Adnan 'Ar'oor. He claimed to follow Salafiyah but attacked the Salafee Manhaj, saying "the Salafee Manhaj didn't have real principles, Shaykh Ibn Baaz didn't lay down the principles but Sayyid Qutb had the principles" and such nonsense...

I used to write about Sayyid Qutb. I used to think better of Sayyid Qutb, I would come across [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=10219&sortby=asc]errors[/url] but pass them by, by Allaah there were errors about which I reserved judgement for 20 years, convinced that they were totally wrong, but wanting the sufficient evidence. After I was convinced that I should refute him, I wrote Mataa'in Sayyid Qutb fee Ashaabi Rasoolillaah (The Attacks of Sayyid Qutb on the Companions of Allaah's Messenger). This book circulated, it was published and circulated.

'Adnan 'Ar'oor went to Shaykh Al-Albaanee asking about an unclear sentence in the book. [Despite] Sayyid Qutb's [derision] of the Messenger of Allaah Moosaa - may Allaah's peace and blessings be upon him - his attacks on the Companions, principally 'Uthmaan, Mu'aawiyah and 'Amr bin Al-'Aas, his attack on the entire Ummah and his takfeer of it, his negation of the attributes [of Allaah], his assertion of the eternal nature of the soul, and his support of socialism - endless deviation that I explained in this book [and] in Shedding the Islamic Light on the Creed of Sayyid Qutb, 'Ar'oor took my book and ran off to Shaykh Al-Albaanee to ask him about a sentence, and the Shaykh gave an answer that suited 'Adnaan's desires. The Shaykh hadn't seen the contents.

Look at his conniving; [in this book] I started by explaining [Qutb's disparagement of the Prophet of Allaah Moosa - he never mentioned that.  Secondly, I mentioned his disparagement of the Companions, principally 'Uthman: [Qutb asserted that] the foundations of Islam were shattered in his time, the spirit of Islam was destroyed in his time, [Qutb] supported movements like the Saba'eeyah sect against 'Uthmaan and preferred them to his way - may Allaah be pleased with him. May Allaah bless you. ['Ar'oor] mentioned none of these matters; he mentioned one sentence and Al-Albaanee responded in a way that agreed to ['Ar'oor's] desires... He went and spread the tape and was extremely active [against me] ...I was patient over him.

Then one year, he visited me in a group of people. I told him he had to apologize, and he tried to dodge the issue. I told him he had to apologize and those present also told him he had to, so he promised he would. May Allaah bless you, he promised he would. ... I suddenly found that he had authored three books, The Struggle ... such-and-such book and another title, all of which revolved around the principles of Sayyid Qutb and praising Sayyid Qutb. This was his apology. See, when he had reached this stage, may Allaah bless you. On top of this he held a conference in which he spoke about the issue of Al-Jarh wa Al-Ta'deel, along with some others - I do not wish to name them now - he started a fierce campaign against me, so I began to refute him. After how long was this? After a number of years, after a long period of patience and waiting. By Allaah, I do not think anyone has patience like I do.

After him came Abul-Hasan. From the first sitting in which I met him ... he would defend the People of Bid'ah, at the head of [them] were Sayyid Qutb, Al-Tableegh and Al-Ikhwaan, he would defend them [...audio cut off...] Despite all these crimes, I used to treat him with compassion and I would send him responses by Allaah privately from my fax to his, and I would not tell anyone. Then, may Allaah bless you, he continued causing trials and problems until the scholars passed away. Shaykh Ibn Baaz died, Shaykh Al-'Uthaymeen and Al-Albaanee died and [Abul-Hasan] began to wage war, announcing his splitting away and attacking the Salafees [calling them] pathetic and feeble etc., praising the people of falsehood, may Allaah bless you.

I wrote to him with two advices, Tanbeeh Abil-Hasan and ... I wrote the second advice between me and him but he took it and announced war openly against me. Look, do you understand? Do you understand this? No one is as this patient or forbearing. By Allaah, all of this was for the sake of the Salafee Manhaj and for the sake of unity. But they have been planted to cause division and separation. That was it. Abul-Hasan formed his own sect; one in Medinah, one in Yemen, in Libya, in Morocco, everywhere, may Allaah bless you. All based on his manhaj and principles, around 20 principles. I refuted these principles with conclusive arguments and proofs. Twenty principles including: the broad manhaj, meaning he wanted a broad manhaj that included Ahl Al-Sunnah and the rest of the Ummah in it; 'we correct [mistakes] but we do not destroy', 'we correct but we do not disparage others' - may Allaah bless you. Principles like 'I am not required [to take the warning or ruling of a particular scholar].' All these principles were laid down for the purpose of rejecting the truth; principles for striking at the Salafee Manhaj, may Allaah bless you. I refuted these false and corrupt principles. May Allaah bless you.

Sadly, people in every place were duped by him. Before this, may Allaah bless you, during the days of those scholars, when 'Adnaan appeared during the lifetime of Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen, [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=11296]the scholars declared that ('Adnaan) was astray (deviant)[/url]. Twelve scholars struck him down and explained his deviation. He discarded them all. Only Abul-Hasan and [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/printthread.cfm?Forum=33&Topic=11387]'Alee Hasan Abd Al-Hameed (Al-Halabee)[/url] from Sham remained with him, defending him and judging him to still be following Salafeeyah, until this very day. Abul-Hasan came with these principles of his and this sinfulness and these deviations, and there were in Medinah, in Sham and in every place, certain people who would defend him, until this very day.

Then came 'Alee Hasan (Al-Halabee) with the [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?forum=33&topic=11598]calamity of calamities[/url], aiding them in every fitnah. He came with the calamity of calamities. Perhaps [the news of his calamities] has reached you and those of you who it has not reached, it will soon reach you - may Allaah bless you. [ [url=http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?forum=33&topic=11405]Shaikh Rabee made Tabdee' of al-Halabee[/url] ]  

Until today, they are the "Salafees" and we are the "harsh ones." Meaning, they do all these things that the People of Bid'ah have not done: the false principles, may Allaah bless you; by Allaah the People of Bid'ah haven't done such things. Despite this, they are the "Salafees" and we are the "harsh ones." Look at these judgements, these dangerous positions - may Allaah bless you. Be aware and follow the Manhaj of the Salaf; whoever says what is wrong and false, take him to account for his falsehood. And whoever says what is right and true, you are obliged to support him.  

quote:
Cooperate upon goodness and piety, and do not cooperate upon sin and transgression. (Al-Ma`idah, ayah 2)


The Salaf used to support the truth, [and this continued] up to the time of Ibn Baaz and Ibn 'Uthaymeen and others; they all used to support the truth. After these [scholars] went, some of the Shaykhs were tried, may Allaah bless you. Every time they raised their heads with a word of truth, these [opponents] broke their heads. Every time they raised their heads with a word of truth, they belittled them whilst supporting these rebellious deviants, and deeming them to be "Salafees," and [calling] us the "extremists." Abul-Hasan describes us as being "extremists."

Why? Because we criticize Sayyid Qutb, we criticize the Ikhwaan, we criticize Al-Tableegh, and we criticize [other] People of Bid'ah. He calls us "extremists" yet - by Allaah - deems the socialists, Baathists and Naasirees to be Muslims, and he deems Al-Tableegh and the Ikhwaan - to this very day - to be from Ahl Al-Sunnah, while he knows that the scholars of the Sunnah - at the head of them Ibn Baaz and Al-Albaanee - have ruled that these two sects: the Ikhwaan and Al-Tableegh are not from Ahl Al-Sunnah and that they are from the People of Bid'ah, and that they are from the doomed sects. But he opposes the scholars obstinately to this very day, even if they are headed by Ibn Baaz and Al-Albaanee, may Allaah bless you. He says they are from Ahl Al-Sunnah, and he deems the entire Islamic populace to be - he says 'the vast majority of the Ummah' are all "Salafees." So Al-Tableegh and Ikhwaan are Ahl Al-Sunnah, and Rabee' and those with him are "extremists" and this and that... And when he comes to the Raafidah, he is so well mannered, and when he comes to the other People of Bid'ah likewise. And to this day, he [claims he] is the "Salafee" and we are the "extremists."

Understand these plots and these games and these tricks. How long was I patient with him? I was patient with him for seven years or more. Then I dealt with him diplomatically in debating him privately, whilst he was inciting [others] and declaring war. He declared war on the scholars of Yemen and ditched them all, and dissociated himself from them and from the Salafees. He announced his separation; they said, 'recant.' He said, 'never.' ... [I ask you] by Allaah, brothers: a person who is fair, can he respect this man? A person who is fair, who is a true Salafee, can he respect this man?

quote:
Be men; if you are Salafees, study the Manhaj of the Salaf from its original sources and adhere to it strictly and tightly, and do not fear the blame of the blamers if you speak sincerely for Allaah. If your father or your brother deviates, the closest person to you, explain the reality of [the deviation] he has. This is the meaning of being sincere (nasihah) to Allaah.  

The religion is Naseehah to Allaah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and the Muslim public. [Saheeh Muslim]

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... (An-Nisa, ayah 135)


Where are these verses and narrations? Where are those who support those [who refute falsehood]? Where are these texts? Where is the Manhaj of the Salaf? Where is the Manhaj of the Imaams... Ibn Baaz and others, where is it?

May Allaah bless you, I know that there is a spreading of trials and tribulations, there is a spreading of Bid'ah and misguidance, and [people] are being fooled and cheated. So let no one fool you. Whoever errs - if Ibn Taymeeyah erred, if Ibn Baaz erred - by Allaah we would refute his error. This is our way, by Allaah other than whom none deserves worship.

quote:
I went to Shaykh Ibn Baaz. Shaykh Ibn Baaz [had] said, "I will advise [Shaykh Rabee']." I went to him and said, "It has reached me that you want to advise me." He replied, "Indeed." I said, "What is your advice?"

He replied, "My advice is: if [Muhammad] Ibn Ibraaheem (the former Mufti of Saudi Arabia and teacher of Shaykh Ibn Baaz) or Ibn Baaz errs, refute them." By Allaah other than whom none deserves worship.


In any of his lectures or meetings, if a person said one wrong word, Ibn Baaz would refute it. Everyone knows this; all the early students of the [Islamic] University know this about Shaykh Ibn Baaz. He would never leave an error without refuting (correcting) it. A mistake made in a newspaper, magazine, a site, anywhere, Ibn Baaz would not remain silent, he would refute it - may Allaah bless you. And he would encourage the Salafees to refute and would support them.

This is the Manhaj of the Salaf. I ask Allaah to make us and you all firm upon it, and to provide us true knowledge and insight of the religion. Verily our Lord is The One Who hears and answers the prayers. And may Allaah's praise and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his Family and Companions.
