ABU USAMAH KHALIFAH ADH-DHAHABI & HIS SPEECH CONCERNING THE ISLAMIC GOVERNMENTS:
|Shaykh Aboo Amr Abdul-Kareem al Hajooree hafeedhahullaahu taa'aala said about Abu Usaamah: |
"he should not be called Aboo Usaamah, he should be called Aboo Qilaamah al hizbee"
"he is majrooh, and refuted from the ulamaa"
"his statements are not to be given consideration"
"I advise you to repent for your foolishness and misguidance, leave off writing, for you are not from the people who are worthy of writing, even if your face is totally covered in ink"
HE IS AN OFFICIAL EMPLOYEE, A KEY LECTURER, A KHATEEB,
& AN IMAAM OF THE "MARKAZI JAMIAT AHL-E-HADITH UK"
AT GREEN LANE MOSQUE
|1. He is a defender of the well-known innovator Abul-Hasan al-Ma'rabi. |
2. He is an attacker of the great Scholar Rabee' bin Haadee al-Madkhali.
3. He is a staunch defender of the deviants Suhaib Hasan and Abdul-Haadee.
4. He is a staunch defender of the Political Jamiat Ahlel-Hadith.
5. He is staunch defender of Bilal Philips.
6. He applies the innovated Qutubi principles of mawaazanah upon the innovators and deviants.
7. He promotes the conferences and lectures of Muhammad al-Maghraawee and Usaamah al-Qoosee.
8. No level of defence of Abu Usaamah by anyone can help him till he repents from his severe errors.
Abu Usaamah Khaleefah adh-Dhahabee, stated in the year 2000, during a sermon delivered in the USA:
|"You are all aware of the astronomical and extortionate amounts we are paying for one gallon of gas - about a dollar 50, 65, 70 cents for a gallon of gas... and that's from their politics and games! |
What's the point? The point is that Allaah has given the Imaams of the Muslims the great big Imaan, this black gold! - that if they wanted they could use this gold as a weapon against these infidels and bring them literally to their knees calling - but what do we find the imaams of the muslims doing? Bickering and fighting amongst themselves, going to the devils and asking the devils to solve their problems [saying],
'What do you want to do Mr Devil with the stuation?' - so we have the states that are in the 'khaleej' or the gulf, Saudi Arabia being the main one, trying to help the Devil to keep the prices up so that their infrastructure here [in the USA] can get blessed, and then we have the other smaller poorer countries saying, 'NO! let's do something else' - and the people are arguing and fighting amongst themselves - Why?
Because ALL of them put the Book of Allaah (tabaraka wa ta'aala) behind their back and they put the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu alayhi wasallam) on the side!
And with all of that there is no point of meeting for those people.. the devils are gonna be coming for them...."
(Source: Recorded Khutbah delivered in the USA, year 2000, discussing the hadeeth of Ibn 'Umar, that the Prophet (salallaahu alayhi wasallam) came to us and said: "O Muhaajiroon! You may afflicated by five things, Allaah forbid that you should live to see them.." Reported by Ibn Maajah.
** THE TRUE POSITION OF THE SALAF & THE SALAFI SCHOLARS IN THIS AFFAIR
Shaikh Al-Albaanee said:
|"We support EVERYONE who calls for the refutation of the one who comes out in opposition against the Rulers, and those who encourage the Muslims to come out [in opposition] against the Rulers." |
(Fataawaa al-'Ulamaa'il-Akaabir p.97)
So we refute you O Abaa Usaamah till you repent for indeed if, "You (who makes such a claim) was to look at his own self, he would find mistakes that would prevent his tongue from speaking about others and make him feel ashamed of looking at others!" (See speech of Shaikh Al-Fawzaan below).
Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan stated:
|"The Saudi state ever since it began has always aided the religion and its adherents. And it was not founded except upon this basis. And whatever it does at the moment in spending material wealth to support Muslims in every place, setting up centres and mosques, sending du?at (to other countries), printing books ? at the forefront of which is the Noble Qur?an -, opening centres of learning and faculties of knowledge, and its judging by the Islamic Shari?ah, and also setting up a separate body for enjoining the good and forbidding the evil in every city ? then all of this is a clear and evident proof of it?s aid to Islam and its adherents. And this is thorn in the throats of the people of hypocrisy and the people of evil and dissension. And Allaah is the Aider of His religion even if the pagans and the biased partisans may detest it. |
And we do not say that this state is perfect from every single aspect and that it does not have any mistakes. Mistakes occur by every single person and we ask Allaah that he helps this state in correcting its mistakes.
But if this person (who makes such a claim) was to look at his own self, he would find mistakes that would prevent his tongue from speaking about others and make him feel ashamed of looking at others."
(Al-Ajwibah al-Mufidah of Jamal bin Farihan al-Harithi.)
Imaam Ibn Abee 'Aasim said in "Kitaabus-Sunnah" (2/251),
|"Chapter: How are the Rulers of the people to be advised?" He then related: |
From Shurayh Ibn 'Ubaid al-Hadramee and other than him, who said: 'Iyaad Ibn Ghunm was whipping a person of a land which was conquered. So Hishaam Ibn Hakeem spoke harshly with him, until 'Iyaad became angry. So he remained like this through the night, then he came to Hishaam Ibn Hakeem and sought an excuse from him. Then Hishaam said to Iyaad, "Have you not heard the Prophet's (salallaahu 'alaihi wassallam) statement,'Verily the person who shall suffer the severest punishment is the one who is the most severe in punishing the people in this world.'"
So Iyaad Ibn Ghunm said, "O Hishaam Ibn Hakeem! Indeed we have heard what you have heard, but have you not heard the statement of Allaah's Messenger (salallaahu 'alaihi wassallam), 'Whoever wishes to advise the ruler concerning a matter, then let him not do it openly. Rather, he should take him by the hand and take him into seclusion. So if he accepts his advice, then he has achieved his objective, and if he does not accept it from him, then he has still conveyed that which was a duty upon him.' And verily you - O Hishaam - are a reckless fool, you dare to come out against the ruler of Allaah?! So wahy are not afraid that you may be killed by the ruler, so then you would be the one killed by the Ruler of Allaah, the blessed and exalted?!"
In addition to Ibn Abee Aasim, related also by Ahmad (3/403), authenticated by Al-Albaanee in Dhilaalul-Jannah fee Takhreejis-Sunnah (no.1096).
Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal said:
|"Verily I supplicate for the ruler for his rectification, success and support, night and day. I see this as obligatory upon me." |
Refer to As-Sunnah (no. 14) of Aboo Bakr al-Khallaal.
Ibn al-Qayyim (d. 752H) - may Allaah have mercy upon him - said:
|??The Prophet (sallallaahu ?alaihi-wasallam) legislated for his ummah, the obligation of rejecting the evil so that by its rejection, the goodness that Allaah and His Messenger love is obtained. And when rejecting the evil leads to what is more evil and more hated by Allaah and His Messenger then it is not allowed to reject it - even if Allaah hates it and detests those who perform it (the evil). And this is like rejection [inkaar] against the kings, and the ones in authority by coming out against them - for verily, that is the basis and foundation of every evil (sharr) and every tribulation (fitnah) till the end of time.? (I?laam al-Muwaqqi?een)|
Al-Hasan al-Basri (d. 110H) used to say,
|?Verily al-Hajjaaj is a punishment of Allaah, so do not repel the punishment of Allaah with your hands, but you must (repel it) with humility and submission?.|
|?Know ? may Allaah pardon you ? that the tyranny of the kings is a retribution (niqmah) from among the retributions of Allaah the Most High. And Allaah?s retributions are not to be faced with the sword, but they are to be faced with taqwaa and are repelled with supplication and repentance, remorse (inaabah) and abstention from sins. Verily, when the punishments of Allaah are met with the sword, are more severe. And Maalik bin Deenaar narrated to me that al-Hajjaaj (Ibn Yoosuf) used to say, ?Know that every time you commit a sin Allaah will bring about a punishment from the direction of your ruler(sultaan)?. And I have I have also been told that a person said to al-Hajjaaj, ?Do you do such and such with the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)?? So he replied, ?For the reason that I am the punishment of Allaah upon the people of Iraaq, when they innovated into their religion whatever they innovated, and when they abandoned the commands of the their Prophet ? alaihis salaam ? whatever they abandoned.? (Adaab Hasan al-Basri, of Ibn al-Jawzee, pp.119-120, by way of Mu?aamalat ul-Hukkaam, of Abdus-Salaam al-Burjis).|
