Shaykh ’Ubayd Ibn ’Abdullaah al-Jaabiree Clarifies Two Doubts Used to Defend Innovators

Shaykh 'Ubayd's Explanation of Usoolus-Sunnah of Imaam al-Humaydee
Shaykh ‘Ubayd’s Explanation of Usoolus-Sunnah of Imaam al-Humaydee

[Q]: When speaking about some of the deviants, we hear a couple of expressions from some individuals.  They are:

Firstly: Allaah will not ask you about them in your grave.

Secondly: He says, “The truth can be accepted, even from Shaytaan.”  And he uses the hadeeth of Abee Hurayrah (radiyallaahu ’anhu) as evidence.

[A]: Firstly: The Salafus-Saalih proceeded upon the way of warning against the innovators, rejecting them harshly and being stern with them publicly and privately up until the Ummah has been cautioned against them, because the intended purpose is to purify and purge the Religion for Allaah the Glorified and Exalted, yet he says: Allaah will not ask you about them in your grave!

The Path to Salvation and Holding Fast to the Straight Path – Al-’Allaamah Rabee’ Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee

The Quintessential Gathered Advices and Instructions of ash-Shaykh Rabee’ to the Youth

So Allaah the Blessed and Exalted sent Muhammad (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) with the guidance and the truth and the Religion of truth in order to make it manifest over all other Religions, though the polytheists may detest it.

And this Ummah has been commanded to obey this Messenger and to follow him and to hold onto whatever he came with from knowledge and guidance.  So when we say to the people, ‘Strive upon the Salafee manhaj,’ then we are enjoining upon them to hold onto the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and whatever the Companions (radiyallaahu ’anhum) of the Messenger of Allaah were upon.

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee on the Reality of Daesh (ISIS)

Questioner: May Allah show goodness towards you; There has been an abundant of criticism on what has been known as Daesh, and all praises belong to Allah. However, the problem is that the majority of people in this time do not know their origin and they do not know their sources, and who they separated from. Rather, you find some who attribute them, meaning those who bomb and blow up things, they attribute to them that they are merely youth, or that they have (peer) pressure (from others), or it is because of unemployment, or magic (has been placed on them), and they say other than that, so what do you advise regarding this, may Allah preserve you.

Answer: Daesh, and what will make you know who are Daesh?! Daesh is an acronym. Some say (the acronym) is like the language of engraving, just as the ant engraves within a seed until it becomes hollow and empty. So this is the language of engraving. Daesh named themselves, and they formed for themselves this acronym, this abbreviated nickname, and it befits them. They call themselves al Dawlah al Islamiyyah Fi al Iraq wa Sham (i.e. Islamic State in Iraq and Sham). So they took the letter Daal د from the word al-Dawlah, and the letter Alif after the Daal, دا stands for Islamiyyah, and the letter Ain داع stands for Iraq , and the letter Sheen stands for Sham. So it was called as an acronym داعش Daesh, meaning al-Dawlah al-Islamiyyah Fi al-Iraq wa Sham; but they have absolutely nothing to do with Islam, and Islam is free from them.

Meeting the People Where They are, Or Meeting the People Where They Need to Be? – Abu Suhayl Anwar Wright

We have heard some statements from one of the callers to desires and misguidance here in Philadelphia whose goal, ultimately, is do away with the commanding of good and forbidding of evil, and to allow the people to do and say whatever pleases them from sin, transgression and innovation, without there being anyone to censure those statements and actions, or look down upon them. His speech is in line with the old statement of some common folk prevalent some years ago “Allah knows what’s in my heart” or “Only Allah can judge me.” These statements contain truth, but what is intended by them is to leave off censuring and rebuking open acts of disobedience, innovation, and other matters they commit which contradict the lofty Religion of Islam . The only difference now is that these new statements emanate from an individual who ascribes to knowledge and carries a degree from the Islamic University of al Madinah. His dubious statements only give ammunition to people who follow their desires and practice Islam in a way that suits their desires without there being anyone who can advise, rebuke, or censure them.

lubaabbookIndeed, I advise myself and you with the taqwaa [1] of Allaah and ikhlaas (sincerity) [2] to Him and steadfastness upon the truth and holding fast to the Book and the Sunnah and that which the Salafus-Saalih were upon in terms of beliefs, acts of worship, manhaj (methodology) and moral character.

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan on the Position of the Muslims Towards the Insults Against the Prophet Muhammad

[Q]: May Allaah bestow favours upon you.  The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) has been insulted repeatedly in recent times by way of films and in newspapers and other than those media.  The question is: What is the Sharee’ah legislated position with regards to these offenses?  And following on from that, he says: And what is the ruling on expressing anger at the insults against the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) by way of protests and demonstrations?

And indeed, you are of a great moral character.
And indeed, you are of a great moral character.

[A]: O brothers!  This is not something new.  In the time of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi sallam) they said that he was a magician, a liar, a soothsayer, a poet and other than that.  And the Messenger (’alayhis-salaatu was-salaam) remained patient and he did not act hastily and Allaah commanded him with patience.

So the question – may Allaah preserve you – is: What is the position of the Salafee towards these acts of terror and what is your advice to the Muslims in France and to the Salafee callers in specific.  May Allaah reward you with goodness.

Concerning the Doubt that the Origin of Muslims is Integrity, Sunnah and Salafiyyah

Shaykh ’Abdul-Muhsin Ibn Hamad al-’Abbaad Clarifies the Origin of the Muslim is Ignorance:

[Q]: Allaah the Glorified and Exalted says,

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it.” [Sooratul-Hujuraat 49:6]

Is the report accepted when it comes from other than a rebellious evil person (faasiq), knowing that the origin concerning the Muslim is integrity (’adaalah)? Continue reading “Concerning the Doubt that the Origin of Muslims is Integrity, Sunnah and Salafiyyah”
