This was an extremely moving and profound lecture on the state of the Ummah at the moment, and how the Ummah needs to return to the correct 'Aqīdah upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah.
Distortion of The Image of Islām by ISIS by Shaykh Muhammad Rabee' al-Madkhalī (hafiẓahullāh)
Monday 27 Dhul Qadah 1435 [22nd September 2014]
Collated and minor corrections to tweets from @mpubs.
 Tawḥīd has three categories, which the scholars have extrapolated by looking at the text of the Qur'aan & Sunnah
 Just as all the other sciences of Islāmic knowledge such as Fiqh, rulings of inheritance
 - all have been extrapolated from the Qur'aan & Sunnah
 If someone were to say never was this division done by the Prophet, Abū Bakr or 'Umar so dividing Tawḥīd into 3 categories is bid'ah
 No one would say this except the one who doesn't love Tawḥīd and his 'Aqīdah is corrupt and he is fighting against Tawḥīd
 Knowledge of the Deen such as Fiqh were all extrapolated from the text in the same fashion as these 3 categories were of Tawḥīd
 There is no verse form the Qur'aan that explicitly states what are the pillars, obligations or sunnah acts of ṣalāh
 This was extrapolated from the texts
 The scholars wrote about these branches of 'ilm and as long as they are supported by the texts of the Qur'aan & Sunnah, it is correct
 Beloved brothers, we have to thank Allah and praise Him much. We have to know that He has bestowed upon us many blessings
 Blessings that we cannot count. The greatest of them is that He guided us to Islām, Īmān & the madhhab of Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah
 and has prevented us from falling into the traps of the Raafidhah, Khawaarij, Mu'tazilah and those who went astray
 He guided us to the 'Aqīdah of the Salaf-us-Ṣāliḥ, and this 'Aqīdah is the truth
 Many who ascribe to Salafiyyah do not recognize this great blessing,and if they were to ponder they would see it is indeed the greatest
 Many people are in the darkness of shirk, bid'ah & have left the straight path which the Prophet (ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wasalam) advised us to follow
 Every other path is nothing other than something which was drawn up by the people of bid'ah and those who call to the Hell fire
 Proof that some who ascribe to Salafiyyah do not feel this blessings is that many busy themselves with minute details of 'Aqīdah
 and make a big deal out of very small issues; what they want is to cause fighting within the ranks of the Salafis
 These are matters which Allah never made us responsible for knowing the fine details of
[20 This is in the time when the sons of Aadam are in dire need for someone to teach them the basics of 'Aqīdah
 and teach them the Book of Allah
 In the time when many are in need of 'Aqīdah those who ascribe to Salafiyyah are busy looking for the faults of their brothers
[23a] and accusing their own brothers of being misguided. All they want by this is wealth and prestige
[23b] They do not know that if Allah wanted He could make their hearts go astray.
 They act as if they think they are in control of their own hearts & their hearts are in between their own fingers
 and they can move it as they wish
 Do we really feel safe from the plotting of Allah? "None feels secure from the Plan of Allah except the people who are the losers."
 Those who take Salafiyyah as a slogan, they do not intend to benefit the people. They only use this slogan to gain prestige,
 to take the people's money, as a way of earning an income and in the name of being known as the student of Shaykh so and so
 And they do not know that if that Shaykh were to get out of his grave, he would warn against them and free himself from them
 According to Shaykh Rabee': These people are stabbing Salafiyyah in the side
 It is no secret to any of you the reality of the situation of the Muslims in the world today & the events that are taking place
 It is something that makes us all sad and causes us to grieve
 These events are something that are about to take place at the end of time; as the Hour gets closer there is bound to be fitan
 In this time, a person holding on to his Deen will be as rare as a person holding on to hot coal
The believer is very saddened about humanity in general & the Ummah of Muhammad in specific & regarding these bloodbaths talking place
 The reason for these fitan is the lack of people holding on to the manhaj of our Salaf-us-Ṣāliḥ & them following their own desires
 and following their own thoughts which have gone astray and their own minds which are deficient
 Those who call themselves du'aat are following their own desires, and they know that the truth lies in the Qur'aan & Sunnah
 However, they have other agendas and desires; they have their political parties and they want control in order to rule the world
 Their own dream, corrupt aspirations and their own shayaateen dictate that they must rule the world by any means
 By being in agreement with Islām or not. Even if they have to be treacherous, hypocrites
 or enter into conspiracies with the enemies of Islām. And in this they claim the permissibility of shedding the blood of the Muslims
 They enter into pacts and become friendly with the Raafidhah & the enemies of Islām all in the name of politics
 And they have forgotten that all of the Affairs are in the Hands of Allah and He is watching over us
 The group I am referring to is al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen, which was established by Ḥasan al-Banna
 They have caused more harm to the Muslims than anyone else. They have caused tremendous harm to the followers of Muhammad
 All the bloodshed in Afghanistan, Iraq & the corruption caused by the Arab Spring, I attribute all of that to al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen.
...beloved brothers after talking about Ikhwan Muslimeen you should know that there are many similar to them who call themselves Salafis
 and they have been tricked by them and all the wealth they have to offer, they argue with falsehood in order to extinguish the truth
 They abused their own intellects to fight against the people of the true 'Aqīdah, those who care little for the dunya
 who have spent their entire lives calling to Islām and calling to Tawḥīd
 Those who call themselves Salafis see that al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen have we
 Ihyaa at-Turaath in Kuwait didn’t leave any Salafi school in India, Pakistan & Bangladesh except that they fought one another and jumped on board, dividing the Salafis
 and called each other innovators. They accuse Shaykh al-Albānī and Shaykh Rabee' of Irjaa'
 All the books they write, they fight about issues of Irjaa - such as the Haddaadiyyah and Hajaawirah
56] They have done nothing but back-stabbed the Sunnah &Islām. They think these tricks will be accepted with Allah
 and they do not know that only obedience to Allah and His Messenger is what is accepted
 Such as 'Ibaadah, Tawḥīd, teaching the people the truth and calling to Islām and having sincerity
 Allah does not care about people's appearance, He cares about what is in people's hearts
The Messenger of Allah said: “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and actions.”
 I advise you to have taqwá of Allah, be dutiful to Him and be fearful of Him
 In these times there are still those who worship trees & lakes and make pilgrimage to these places.
 At a time when people have not even heard about Islām, we are busy fighting and accusing each other of Irjaa'
64] Were it not that Allah maintains the hearts of the believes, our hearts would crumble and die
 but out of His Mercy, He shows Mercy to us and pours it down upon us & Allah does not cause the actions of the Muhsineen to go to waste
 We are addressing the importance of 'Aqīdah. It is important to respect the Salaf and their 'Aqīdah
 The 6 major books of Ḥadīth all have chapters talking about the importance of Creed & Īmān
 This topic (of 'Aqīdah) is in essence Islām
 I advise you with calling others to Islām and I remind you of the saying of the Prophet (sallAllahu 'alayhi wa sallam):
 "Convey from me even if it is one aayah"
 The nation of Muhammad is now experiencing a blood bath; we are in a waterfall of blood. We ask Allah to relieve all of the hardships
 And we ask Him not to let ourselves be a cause of others not wanting to enter into this Deen
