In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Merc

Sheikh Rabee (hafidha-hullaah) stated in his Introduction of ‘The Methodology Of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah In Criticizing Individuals, Books And Groups’

However, the most dangerous of these (above) categories and the ones who produced the worst consequences were the people of innovation-the spiteful ones that are filled with hatred.  This is since by their plotting scheming and their camouflaging of themselves behind the cover of the Sunnah, they were able to penetrate every barrier.  Thus, they managed to pour into every crack from these schools, universities and masaajid.  And they were able to create a group that carried their ideologies, whether all of it or some of it, and whether intentionally or unintentionally.

So this group-which they had trained and prepared according to the way they saw fit-began to form movements calling the people towards these ideologies in the universities, schools and elsewhere, and upheld it by becoming active in this place and that place.   And these were crucial and significant times in which the dawah (call) to Allah had a great need for enthusiastic and active individuals that would raise its flag with firmness and conviction, fighting the enemies of falsehood, schemes and plots and thus turning them back upon their heels in disgrace.

So then using the name of Salafiyyah and the names of justice and fairness, this group was able to present the innovators-those who wage war against the people of Sunnah and Tawheed in their own land-as ones who were oppressed.

So then using the name of Salafiyyah and the names of justice and fairness, this group was able to present the innovators-those who wage war against the people of Sunnah and Tawheed in their own land-as ones who were oppressed.

And corrupted the minds and the beliefs of many of the youth, distorting the image of the Salafi Manhaj and its adherents in the eyes of the youth.  Then the figureheads within this group began calling towards a ‘New Methodology’ with regards to criticizing the methodologies, ideologies, books and individuals-and they claimed that this was the methodology that was just and fair.  So many of the youth and those who wrote in their favour began to think that such was the correct way.  Rather, they even claimed that it was the Methodology of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah and this spread and circulated in the writings of some of those who ascribed themselves to the Salaf.

And it had an effect on many of the youth, such that they accepted it and clung onto it, thinking that it was the truth and that it was just.  And then unfortunately, that began to become deeply rooted in their hearts and they did not realize that this was a way of thinking that was foreign to Islaam and Muslims.  This view crept into them from their enemies in the same manner that other (deviant) ideologies had crept into Islaamic Societies.

The effects of this methodology became clearly apparent in the conversations, debates, writing and attitudes of many of the youths and teachers.

So this methodology began to take firm root in the peoples hearts. And from its evil consequences, was that it weakened the Principles of Walaa Wal Baraa [Loyalty and Disassociation] to Allah and for the sake of Allah, and to the Methodology of Allah and those who adhere to it-instead there became manifest the loyalty, love and esteem for the callers, books, ideologies and methodologies that were all far from the Salafi Manhaj, and for their people and not it’s people.

Rather, that became the main avenue used in fighting the salafi Manhaj and they changed it with strong determination so that it (the Manhaj) would be replaced from its original form, halting its progression in its tracks after its departure had already taken place.  This (new) methodology had a great influence upon Writers who were one thought were from the best of the Salafis and from virtuous characters, personages and figures.

We ask Allah to grant them the ability to tread the way and methodology of their righteous predecessors in regards to calling to the Clear Methodology of the Salaf, the dedicated education of the youth that are upon it and implanting love for it and its followers whether they are dead or alive, and to follow their example and strengthen themselves by affiliating themselves to them.

Reader: Abdur-Raheem claimed that the Salafis hide the commendation (Tadeel) given to certain scholars who were imprisoned and promote the Jarh against them.  He uttered this statement in the presence of Saeed Rageah-who sat like a silent devil, whilst listening to such nonsense.

However, Abdur-Raheem–the deceiver– neither mentioned the names of those so called scholars nor did he give details of the Tadeel for them and the Jarh against them.    Indeed, we do not expect the likes of Abdur-Raheem to be brave enough to mention the names of such so-called scholars because he would have received an admonition; so he opted for slander through deception, treachery and lies.  This is a well known characteristic of the hizbiyyoon, as Al-Allaamah Muqbil Bin Haadi Al-Waadi’ee (rahimahullaah) said: ”The pillars of hizbiyyah are three: [a] Deception (by way of confounding truth with falsehood); [b] Treachery, and [c]Lying.


Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi

I [Abu Mu-aawiyyah (Abdullaah al-Gambi) asked Ustaadh Abdul Waahid Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him) about the state of affairs of Abdur-Raheem McCarthy Al-Amreekee after coming across his mixing haqq with Baatil, his exaggerations and defence of the people of hizbiyyah such as the likes of Abu Muslimah and the people to be treated the same as Ahlul Bidah such as Abu Usaamah; so he (Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah) said to me: ‘’Narrate from me that I heard Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadee (may Allaah preserve him) saying: ‘’I warn against Abdur-Raheem. [end of quote]’’

We ask Allaah for truthfulness.  Aameen
