In Defence of Shaykh Rabīʿ - The Humility of a Scholar
Two beneficial discussions from two students of knowledge on the plots and trickery of the people of deception and their bankrupt quest to belittle Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī.
On Sunday 22nd of December, 2013, the following benefit was published:
In a follow up to this benefit, our noble brother, Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá authored a follow up audio Wednesday, 25th December 2013.
Our teacher, Abū al-ʿAbbās provided the following notes on his lecture:
"Building on the discussion of the topic by the virtuous Ustaath Abū al-Ḥasan Mālik (may Allāh preserve him upon goodness):
1- The "recent" audio is nothing new, rather it is about ten years old.
2- The shaykh has always advised his students in this manner.
3- Shaykh Rabīʿ constantly warns his students of ghulū regarding himself and any other scholar.
4- Shaykh Rabīʿ constantly warns his students against blind following him and other scholars.
5- Those who claim that Shaykh Rabīʿ has just now decided to shun excessive praises directed at him are oppressive liars who do not know what they are talking about.
6- The advice of Shaykh Rabīʿ to remain busy in beneficial matters has been taken to heart and acted upon by his students.
7- The reason why Shaykh Rabīʿ is defended so commonly is because of the excessive acts of oppressive accusations against him. The obsession with Shaykh Rabīʿ is what is found with the enemies of Salafīyyah, not its callers and defenders.
8- Another amazing example of how a scholar, al-Nawawī, rejected heavy praise, and how the people with fiqh in the Religion understood it."
