In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
For beneficial notes on this article, see Part 1 of Ustaadh Abu Hakeem’s (Bilaal Davis’s) response to Abu Usaama. At 30mins:46secs in the audio, ustaadh Bilaal (hafidha-hullaah) reads this statement of shaikh Rabee (hafidha-hullaah) and makes beneficial comments. See links
Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) stated:
Indeed, from the severest of afflictions and trials upon Islaam and the Muslims in this era, is the appearance of a group claiming to be upon the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa-ah, but unfortunately this group does not act except in opposition to this methodology and its people, openly at times and behind veils at other times.
And indeed this group has placed a heavy burden upon its shoulders and that is its defence of the people of innovation and misguidance. They author books in this regard and decorate statements for it, and they spread such defence in the world under the slogan of justice and equity or (under) the methodology of Muwaazanaat.
They exceed the limits in the affair of Fiqul Waaqi (knowledge of current affairs) and speak ill of the scholars of the salafi methodology as a result of that; rather they degrade the methodology of the scholars as a result of this and increase in ill speech against the salafi methodology and its people. The effects of the path of justice and equity are neither seen in their arguments against the people of the salafi methodology nor in their praises and exaltations for the people of innovation.
Alongside concealing themselves with the Salafi Methodology, they are not seen to give it importance except with respect to what they utilize to deceive those deceived by them, or (what they utilize as) garments of salafiyyah in order to bring the people to their corrupt illegal partisanship organization in order to kill off their love for the Salafi Methodology, the call to it, defence of it, traversing in it upon the methodology of the pious predecessors with the (correct) love and hate (for the sake of Allaah), and being warned against the people of innovation.
So they divert a great deal of people from the true methodology and the truthful alliance for it; and (direct them) towards that passionate alliance to the people of innovation and in defence of them, their innovations and falsehoods, or they deemphasize their innovations to the extent that it leads them to the station of the extreme murji-a with regards to their views towards the major innovations and great affairs that are in opposition to the true religion of Allaah.
Meanwhile, on the opposite end of the spectrum, their hatred for the carriers of the Sunnah and the (true) Salafi Methodology has led them to blow their minor errors out of proportion, errors the likes of which a Sunni or (even) an innovator amongst those who ascribe themselves to Islaam should not be criticised for. They present these mistakes as mighty affairs of blunder and destruction; rather they make the virtues and merits of ahlus Sunnah to be repugnant and disdainful in addition to much fabrication and accusation.
So with these disgraceful deeds they perpetrate, they are from the severest in war against the salafi methodology and its people; the severest in their opposition to the salafi methodology and its people; the most intense in their defence of the groups of innovation and fitan, and their claimants and their methodologies. They have authorships in this regard and from them are the many authorships of Shaikh Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq who carries the responsibility of this destructive orientation.
