Naveed Ayaaz’s (Madinahdotcom/IslamNelson) Difficulty in Clarifying the Correct Manhaj, purposely keeping Commoners away from Salafis.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee said  regarding Madeenahdotcon and their associates:

“So if they [Madeenah.Com and associates] do not return (to what is correct) and do not repent, then they are not to be put in front of the people, nor are they to be co-operated with, rather they are to be warned against – I say, in addition to that, they are warned against so that the people can beware of them, because if the people do not beware of them, they will fall into their snare, and go astray as a result of them.”

Abul Abbaas Naveed Ayaaz – regrettably another disgraced Madinahdotcon member [and in fact from those who clearly fall into the liars from among them] – claims that there has been an apparent “agenda”(!) against him, which has been taking place for at least 4-5 years, including an apparently large (?) number of articles “in refutation of him”. Does this therefore mean that the Salafis speak about him due to some “agenda” or without daleel (evidence)?! What exactly is this fictitious sympathy-seeking claim of an apparent “agenda”?!

Firstly, let us remind ourselves of this statement of Ameerul-Mu’mineen Umar Ibn-ul Khattaab (radiyAllaahu-anhu) that: ”People were (sometimes) judged by the revealing of a Divine Inspiration during the lifetime of Allaah’s Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) but now there is no longer any more (new revelation).  Now we judge you by the deeds you practice publicly, so we will trust and favour the one who does good deeds in front of us, and we will not call him to account about what he is really doing in secret, for Allaah will judge him for that; but we will not trust or believe the one who presents to us with an evil deed even if he claims that his intentions were good.” [1]

Imaam Abdul-‘Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said: ”Whoever manifests good it will be accepted from him and a good suspicion is held about him.  And if he manifests evil it will be held against him and an evil suspicion is held about him.” [2]

Naveed Ayaaz’s companions are well known and they are none other than the obstinate followers of the innovators (Ma’ribi, Halabi, Maghraawi) at Masjid As-Sunnah, Cheethamhill, as well as the UK allies of Ihyaa Turaath at Greenlane Masjid. So where is the so called “agenda” against Naveed Ayaaz when it is the case that he has openly allied himself with these obstinate hizbiyyoon mentioned above.  Ummul-Mumineen Aa’isha (radiyallaahu-anhaa) said: I heard the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) saying, ”Souls are like recruited troops; those who are of like qualities are inclined to each other, but those who have dissimilar qualities differ.” [3]

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar (rahimahullaah) quoted one of the meanings of this hadeeth (in Fathul-Baari) from Al-Khattaabi (rahimahullaah), who said that this may indicate to mean similarity in good and evil, righteousness or corruption – the good one amongst the people  is inclined towards one similar to him, and the evil one is similarly inclined towards the one similar to him.  Souls have an affinity with others in accordance with the nature in which they were created, good or evil. They will agree if their natures are similar, otherwise they will be at loggerheads… [So why is Naveed Ayaaz walking alongside and sitting with the Hizbiyyoon? Rather, he even keeps quiet about those hizbiyyoon who call the Ummah to the figureheads of Bid’ah such as Maribi, Halabi, Maghraawi etc]  So where is the so called “agenda” against Naveed Ayaaz?!

Rather, Naveed Ayaaz blatantly keeps quiet about the truth (since speaking out would jeopardise his seat at such organisations, hence the silence upon AbdurRaheem Green being promoted under his nose, the public silence on the unbelievable “Qur’an and I” conference! Then, only days ago, the promotion of an event advertising a whole selection of refuted individuals), whilst he is able to speak the haqq (truth) without fearing or being threatened with any physical harm, yet not only does he keep silent like a mute devil, as one of the salaf said: The one who speaks with falsehood is a speaking devil and the one who keeps quiet about the truth is a mute devil”[4]  Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) stated:

“Speaking about the people of innovation and those who carry unsound concepts or a methodology which is not upright, (then) this is from advice, and not backbitingRather it is (an act of) sincerity to Allaah, His Book and His Messenger (by carrying out what is commanded and forbidding evil etc) and it is (act of sincerity) to the Muslims (by giving them good advice).” [5]

Naveed Ayaaz however shows little interest in advising his audience to keep away from the obstinate shelterers of innovators at Masjid As-Sunnah (shelterers of Maribi, Halabi and Maghraawi) and Greenlane Masjid Admin [shelterers of a man of bid’ah – Abu Usaama ad-Dhahaby – and affiliates of Ihyaa Turaath and their Mubtadi’ figurehead Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq].  Indeed far removed is the methodology of the Salafus-Saaleh from aiding those who recommend the Ummah to the figureheads of Bid’ah, as Imaam Fudayl Ibn ‘Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: ”Whoever is approached by a man and he directs him to a mubtadi’ [innovator], has acted with deception towards Islaam.  Be mindful of entering upon the people of innovation, for indeed they prevent from the haqq.”

Imaam Al Awzaa-ee (rahimahullaah) said: ”Fear Allaah oh Community of Muslims! Accept the advice of the advisers and the admonition of those who admonish.  And know that this knowledge is Religion, so look to what you do; who you take from; who you take as a guide and to the one with whom your religion is safeguarded; for indeed, ahlul bidah are Mubtiloon (people of futility, falsifiers of the truth); Affaakoon (liars) and Aathimoon (sinners).  They neither take heed nor contemplate, nor do they have fear.’ [6]

So what lame excuse has Naveed Ayaaz got to offer, whilst he still persists in an open and blatant alliance with some of those Masaajid that recommend some of the obstinate figureheads of bid’ah?!? (Halabi, Maghraawi, Maribi etc).  Indeed, it is clear that Naveed Ayaaz chooses to remain silent in the face of falsehood whilst being able to speak; because he simply cannot fulfil the conditions required of  giving da’wa in those places… In fact he shouldn’t even be stepping foot in those places! This disgraceful wrecklessness further highlights why Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadi warned against Madinahdotcon and its associates.

All we see from Naveed Ayaaz, is Tamyee’ [softening/leniance] towards some of those Masaajid that call to the figureheads of bid’ah and organizations of repugnant hizbiyyah (Masjid as Sunnah Cheetham Hill, Masjid Rahma Liverpool, Greenlane Masjid etc.)  So where exactly is this apparent “agenda” against Naveed Ayaaz? It has become somewhat elusive! Rather Naveed Ayaaz’s companionship and affiliations clearly testifies to his real state of affairs.  Imaam Sa’di (rahimahullaah) said:

A person is upon the religion of his friend, so look to the one you befriend. Indeed the people are judged by their associates, therefore, it is incumbent upon a person to take pride in accompanying the best (people) and to beware of accompanying the evil (people). The sitting with a righteous person is like that of a seller of musk, he either gives you some or at least you enjoy a pleasant smell from him.  As for the sitting with an evil person, it is like that of a blacksmith, he either burns you or you receive an offensive smell from him. [7]

Naveed Ayaaz! We are quite sure that you are aware of the fact that whoever leaves something for the Sake of Allaah, He (subhaanahu wa ta’ala) will replace it with something better.  However, as Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) stated: “Lusts overwhelm one’s patience and desires overwhelm the intellect”. [8]

Naveed Ayaaz! Abandon the hizbiyyoon – shelterers and promoters of innovators and even a racist! – and be sincere to this blessed Manhajus Salafi in speech and action.  Indeed, you have been advised by our brother Ustaadh Abu Muadh Taqweem Aslam and others for years, but you have chosen this destructive path in aligning yourself in the defence of the Hizbees and established the proofs against yourself.  May Allaah guide you or keep us safe from the deadly Tamyee’ that has afflicted you. Aameen. Indeed,  Allaah is the Bestower of  Tawfeeq.
