Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maʿribī and the Issue of Maligning the Companions
The first in a series of translations from the refutations of Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī upon the fallacious manhaj of Abū al-Fitan al-Miṣrī, then al-Maʿribī.
Abū al-Ḥasan has seen these words of Shaykh al-Islām and I have alerted him of this danger but despite this he doubted, was obstinate and insisted for years, then displayed recantation at a time when there is doubt about the sincerity of his retraction, the cause of which he has not clarified and during which there has been no apparent remorse over his contravention and obstinacy?
The aforementioned essay is the first in a highly beneficial and systematically structured series of refutations upon the manhaj of Abū al-Ḥasan al-Miṣrī, then al-Maʿribī. The refutations have been compiled from the various works of the Imām of al-Jarḥ wa-al-Taʿdīl, al-ʿAllāmah Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī against Abū al-Fitan.
