al-'Allaamah Rabee' Ibn Haadee on Taking from the
Books of the Innovators Written Before They Deviated

Translated by Anwar Wright

[Q]:Al-'Allaamah, ash-Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) was asked in a recorded meeting between him and some Palestinian Salafee brothers, "Should the books of the people of innovation be benefited from if they were authored before them going astray or even after that if they are free from deviation and it is a good book in that subject?"

The Shaykh answered by saying, "Verily, in the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and in the books that were passed down from our Salafus-Saalih, which are pure and free from innovations, is what suffices us from returning to the books of the people of innovation, whether they authored them before they fell into innovation or afterwards.  This is because, from the benefit of the Muslims is to extinguish and wipe out the mention of the people of innovation.  So clinging to their books with the intent of benefiting (from them) raises their affair and heightens their status in the hearts of the people.  And from the benefit of the Muslims and Islaam is to suppress the people of innovation and to weaken the mention of the heads of innovation and misguidance.  Furthermore, you will not find a book void of some truth, even the books of the Jews, Christians, and the misguided groups.  So it is foremost that the Muslim focuses upon what we previously mentioned, since this is safer and more guaranteed for the Muslim and it distances him from honouring those whom Allah has disgraced. This is what I say as an answer to this question.  Some of the Imaams noted and were of the opinion that it is not befitting to take from the people of innovation, even if it was from the truth.  And if it was possible to take hadeeth from other than the way of the innovator, then it is foremost to stay away from him, even if he is the carrier of the hadeeth.  It is foremost to stay away from him to extinguish him being mentioned just as we mentioned previously." End of Shaykh Rabee's words.

Taken from the notes to the book, Hiwaar ma'a Fadeelatish-Shaykh 'Alee al-Halabee (p. 31) - Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee's (rahimahullaah) refutation of al-Halabee!

Imaam Muqbil [rahimahullaah] was asked: Is it permissible for us to listen to the tapes, to read the books or to listen to the previous lectures of those who were considered to be upon the correct Manhaj then they deviated from it?

A: I do not advise to read their books nor listen to their tapes, I am astonished of the immense statement of shaykul Islaam Bin Taymiyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him, when he said "Verily if Allaah was not to create Al Bukaari and Muslim his Deen would have not been lost (meaning it will be preserved).
Indeed Allaah,Subahana,The Most High has preserved the Deen. Allaah, The Most High said:
{إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ}
"We have sent down the Dhikr and surely we will guard it (from corruption)"
[15.9] So I advise that one should stay away from their books, their tapes and from attending their lectures... - Tuhfatul Mujeeb

What about reading the books of the salafi scholars which are translated by inovators?
