Tarbiyah [Cultivation] – A statement of Shaikh Ubaid Reminds Us of the fact that we should take Serious Warning Regarding the affair of those teachers who deviated
Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him) stated:
There is none who hides behind the Sunnah– the people beguiled by him, gathered around him to learn, adhered to him, became dependent on him and accepted everything he said–except that Allaah will reveal his affair, uncover and expose his concealed state of affairs to specific individuals and to the general public, regarding what was hidden and apparent of his deception, his mixing truth with falsehood, his plots and deceitful practices. Allaah facilitates men of virtue, intelligence, wisdom, strength and exceptional natural ability–possessors of knowledge, skill and sound understanding of the religion–through whom [Allaah] unveils the affair of that trickster, dubious and deceitful person.

How amazing the affair is indeed! Amongst us there were those who used to say, ‘’This is my dawah and I follow the big Ulama’’; yet his actions later showed that his independent and opinionated attitude was what got the better of him in some affairs. Others used to say, “I have seen so much in this Dawah that I do not have to justify myself to anyone”. They uttered these statements with much confidence but only Allaah knows what was in their hearts. Their affair gradually manifested – a feeling of self importance and overstating their efforts got the better of them, even though some issues of Salafiyah were clarified through them by the Tawfeeq of Allaah. However, arrogance, self-amazement, an opinionated attitude and overstating their efforts blinded them, so they made their own independent judgements in issues they were not worthy of making a judgement, and thus we find them today defending Mubtadi’ah such as Al-Hajoori.
On the other hand, there were those who could never break away from their past connections with Jamiat Ahle Hadeeth completely, so when they felt that they had a strong support from Dr Wasiyullaah Abbaas, they showed their true colours. And they were those who accommodated every Mu’mayyi within their ranks in the name of rifq and hikmah.
And if one says, ‘’How could people have allowed themselves to be beguiled by such opinionated individuals and personalities?”; we say to him, ‘’Thank Allaah that you were not present because only Allaah knows what your situation would have been’’. And if someone says, ‘’Alhamdulil-laah, I was never a player in those affairs’’; we say to him, ‘’Increase in praising Allaah, but never feel safe because Tawfeeq belongs to none but Allaah alone. And keep on saying: O turner of the hearts, keep my heart firm upon your religion’’.
And Allaah knows best
