Shaykh ʿAbdullāh ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUbaylān
‘‘There will not come a time, except that after it will be more evil than it.’’
A brilliant in-depth lecture regarding the trickery and deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah, and an admonition against the likes of misguided individuals such as Usāmah al-Qūsī, Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Muḥammad al-Maghrāwī, Yāsir Qaḍhī and Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī.
Our noble brother, Abū Khadījah, goes into detail concerning the importance of having love for the Salaf and the Scholars of the Sunnah, both past and present. Having love and allegiance for them is a sign of one's īmān, and there is not a true believer except that they love these scholars who deserve our total love, respect and allegiance due to their diligence and striving in serving the Sunnah and conveying its true understanding to all corners of the earth.
The Salafī does not harbour ill thoughts towards the Salafis and the Scholars, and we do not fall into the foolishness of those who speak against them and claim they are just men from amongst men. No doubt they were men, but you, O Hizbī are not like them, and your understanding is not like their understanding, and their level is not the same as your level, so do not deceive yourself. They were a people who strived in upholding the Sunnah and did not sell their manhaj for a cheap price. You are obligated to follow them in their understanding, to follow the best of generations, but they are not obligated to you in anything. These Imāms conveyed the message of Islam which remained throughout generations, and it is from their superiority that they are quoted generations after their death, and many people have been guided to Islam and the Sunnah due to their clarification of the truth and their refutation of misguidance.
There will be groups present within every generation who will have hatred for the aʾimmah, breaking off and opposing them instead of allying with them, and these are from the distinguishing signs of Ahl al-Bidʿah. This hatred and opposition nullify the perfection of Imān due to the saying of the Messenger concerning the one who loves for the sake of Allāh then he has perfected īmān.
Imām Aḥmed (raḥimahullāh) mentions: "All praise is for Allāh, who in every age and interval between the Prophets, raises a group from the people of knowledge who call the misguided to guidance, yet patiently bearing ill-treatment and harm. With the Book of Allāh they bring life to the dead and by the Light of Allāh they give sight to the blind, and how many a person killed by Iblīs have they revived, how many people astray and wandering have they guided, and how beautiful has been their effect upon the people, and how vile the people have been towards them."
Allāh aided these lions of the Sunnah and raised the banner of Islam and Sunnah by way of them. So whoever from these times hates the likes of Ibn Taymīyyah, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb, Shaykh Ibn Bāz and al-Albānī, then his manhaj is known and it is a sign that he is upon the path bidʿah. As for us, then we have warā and maḥabbah for these scholars due to their striving.
Today we have many present amongst us who adorn themselves with the garb of Salafīyyah, yet beneath this beautiful attire lies a devil in wait. They are like a sponge that will soak you up and squeeze you out into the ranks of al-Ikhwān al-Muslimīn, without you even realising it.
From them are the likes of the Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī al-Amrīkī, an individual known for his alliance with organisations such Jamʿiah Iḥyā al-Turāth and the various Jamʿīyyāt in Britain and elsewhere which the Scholars have refuted and warned against. A defender and translator for the likes of Abu Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Maghrawī, Usāmah al-Qūsī and other than them, praising the likes of al-Qaradawī and Zakir Naik. A man who wages war against Ahl al-Sunnah, but holds hands and skips alongside Ahl al-Bidʿah.
There are those who present themselves with the Sunnah but are upon deviance and opposition, like Yāsir Qadhī who signed the Pledge of Unity, alongside signatories who are from the Shiʿah, Sūfīyyah, Jahmīyyah, grave worshippers and callers to shirk. People whom Yasir Qadhī claims that sitting with them increases him in īmān. A man who has claimed to study al-ʿAqīdah al-Waṣiṭīyyah, and has translated Kitāb al-Tawḥīd. In truth, this is merely proof against him and not for him, since what benefit did he attain when he sits, allies and condones the very people who hold the beliefs which the subject matter of these books refute. He revels in the label of 'Shaykh' and 'Scholar' whilst cutting the people off from the real scholars under the pretence that they are not connected to the West, and do not live in the same world as we do. Clearly, Yāsir Qadhī lives in a very distorted and deluded version of the world we live in. These individuals like Yāsir Qadhī, Bilāl Philips, and Abū Muslimah wish to place a fortress between you and the ʿAqīdah of the Salaf and our noble scholars such as Shaykh Rabīʿ and Shaykh ʿUbayd (hafiẓahumallāh). In their cooperation and alliance with the people of innovation, they have left off the enjoining of good and forbidding of evil, and this is due to their greater goal of political authority and status in the West.
The path of truth is long and its people are few, so don't be deceived by the oceans of opposition you receive, instead remain firm and steadfast upon it with the people of ḥaqq.
This lecture goes into detail concerning what may be one of the most discussed topics amongst the Muslims today: unity amongst the ranks of the Muslims.
Warning from Misguidance, Innovation and Their People Is Not Completed Except by Differentiating, Classifying and Identifying the Various Groups, Naming and Labelling Them, and Describing Them with Their Respective Characteristics
An important article for those who claim that refuting falsehood and it's callers is harmful and destructive. They claim that refuting the Ḥizbiyūn is division, lacking mercy and foresight. In reality, this is a scheme to protect the callers to innovation and to deviate the heart of the believer. Dr. Muḥammad ibn ʿUmar Bazmūl explains this important issue.
Weighing the affairs and acting in accordance to the relative benefit and harm is probably the principle whose neglect is responsible for every fitnah that has befallen the Ummah of Islām. So know it well, and do not fall into the traps that come along with ignorance of it!
A short lecture explaining the essence of al-daʿwah al-salafiyyah (The daʿwah of the righteous predecessors) and the ideals which it is built upon. The Muftī of Jīzān, Shaykh Aḥmad al-Najmī states, "It is called al-daʿwah al-salafiyyah because it aids the methodology of the Salaf".
Listen to the Imām of Salafiyyah recount his encounter with a man who does not feel that it is obligatory for one to ascribe himself openly to the truth – the madh′hab of the salaf.
Why we chose the Sunnah over the ḥizbiyyah of the ahlul-bid'ah. A detailed analysis of the quest for the truth over falsehood.
During the Seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification in January 2017, our noble and respected elder, Abū Muʿādh Taqwīm Aslam, delivered a powerful khuṭbah at TROID (2017.01.27), concerning the blessings of Allāh, all of which we could never even begin to enumerate, and the greatest of which is guidance to Islam and the Sunnah. In this khuṭbah, he also highlighted the grave importance of seeking and equipping oneself with knowledge in order to worship Allāh as He has commanded us, so we may protect ourselves and our families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones.
al-ʿAllāmah, al-Shaykh Muḥammad Amān ibn ʿAlī al-Jāmī [born 1349/1927 - died 1418/1997] (raḥimahullāh) is from the well-known Scholars of ahl al-Sunnah. Originally born in al-Ḥabaashah (Ethiopia), he travelled to Saudi Arabia to seek knowledge. He was appointed to teach at the Islamic University and the Prophet’s Masjid in Madīnah, Saudi Arabia. He strove to call the ummah to the correct Aqīdah and Tawḥīd.
