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!

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.

Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree on the Charlie Hebdo Shootings in Paris

[Q]: A few days ago, a number of cartoonists who insulted the noble Messenger (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and journalists and employees of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper were killed in Paris.  Likewise, two men and a woman from the police force were killed.  And the individuals who carried out these criminal acts have not yet been caught.  However, video clips have emerged in which some of the criminals praise this act and they say that they carried out this crime in order to exact revenge for the noble Messenger (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam).

So now the fingers are being pointed at Islaam and at the Muslims in general and at the Muslims who live in France specifically.  Fires have been set and bombs have been thrown at some of the mosques.

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”
