[7] A Series in Response to Abu Usaama’s Habitual Deceitfulness- [A Precise Observation by Ustaadh Abu Uwais (rahimahullaah)]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

من صمت نجا

”The one who keeps quiet will be saved.” [1]

Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimahullaah) said: Speaking with good, (such as) remembrance of Allaah, recitation of the Qur’aan and deeds of righteousness (by way of the tongue) is more virtuous than keeping quiet, likewise uttering a word of truth, bringing about reconciliation between the people and what is similar to it; but praiseworthy silence is to (refrain from uttering) falsehood. [2]

Indeed, this is what we advise ourselves and everyone else, including the Bid’ee – that we either speak truth or refrain from uttering falsehood and doubts. However, the Bid’ee does not refrain from falsehood, just as Ustaadh Abu Uwais (rahimahullaah) stated in 2004: Much of the fitnah connected to Abu Usaama is because  he does not have the ability to shut his mouth; he does not have the ability to stay in his place, to be quiet and to stay out of affairs that do not concern him”.

Reader: There is no doubt that since the Bid’ee took it upon himself to defend Mubtadi’ah, he has always uttered falsehood when seeking to defend his stances. Indeed, it is evil enough when a person utters a single sentence of falsehood to defend the indefensible or to hide the unambiguous knowledge based proofs, then how about  a loud mouth who speaks to defend the indefensible! This is Abu Usaama – a loud mouth who seeks to defend the indefensible! He is absolutely certain of his dishonesty and deception whenever seeking to reply to the Salafiyyoon, but he cannot help himself from speaking well before he can determine or anticipate the possible damage. Ibn Abdi Rabbihi (rahimahullaah) said: ”Choosing speech is more difficult than authorship, and indeed it is said: The choice of a man (in speech) is in harmony with his intellect.” [3]

Yoonus Ibn Ubayd (rahimahullaah) said: ”Indeed, you see a man fasting a lot, abstaining from the forbidden affairs and praying the night prayer, whilst he testifies to falsehood in the morning.”  [4]

Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said: ”Neither hajj, nor taking up positions during battle, nor Jihaad are more difficult than restraining the tongue.” [5]

However, the Bid’ee is wilfully oblivious of the fact that holding a view and rushing to speak does not bring about any change in the stances of the Salafiyyoon, unless they are backed by unambiguous knowledge based proofs. We ask Allaah to protect us from falsehood. Aameen
