A Series in Response to Abu Usaama’s Habitual Deceitfulness-[Motivated By Deep Malice, He Made a Fruitless and Desperate Attempt to Prove That We Follow a Shaikh Who Is Upon Bidah]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said:
“And on the other side of those ones who make Takfeer based on falsehood are a people who do not know the creed of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa’ah as it is obligated; or they know some of it and are ignorant of some of it. As for what they know, they conceal it and do not clarify it for the people. They neither forbid innovations nor censure Ahlul Bidah and punish them; rather they may censure a statement in the Sunnah and a fundamental of the religion completely and would not differentiate between what Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa’ah say and what Ahlul Bidah Wal Furqah (The people of innovation and splitting) say, or they would affirm all their differing Madhabs.” [See full article here: http://www.salaficentre.com/2014/08/muhammad-al-maliki-a-tamyi-plague-victim-an-ally-of-goldie-and-masjid-al-furqans-admin-rusholmemanchester/Majmoo Al-Fataawaa 12/467]
Reader: In this article we will –InShaaAllaah – demonstrate the manner in which the Bid’ee sought to conceal and deceive his unsuspecting followers and make them believe that there is a Shaikh we follow who is upon Bidah. The Bid’ee stated that he was declared a man of Bidah because he does not hold that Al-Maribi is a Mubtadi, and this itself is a bidah our Shaikh and us are upon. Then the Bid’ee stated that he is free from this bidah (principle) even if any Shaikh says so.
Firstly: Shaytaan must have whispered to him that we are upon this principle because he did not give any evidence to support his claim, and this is expected of this treacherous, deceitful and conniving Bid’ee.
Secondly: Shaytaan must have whispered to him that our Shaikh -(we don’t know which Shaikh he intends because all the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah are our Shaikhs)- is upon this principle in the manner he presented it. So here he made a specific statement, but did not have the courage to mention a name because he knows without a doubt that neither the Shaikh he intends nor ourselves are upon this principle. We remind this treacherous, conniving and shameless slanderer of the following:
Ibn Asaakir (rahimahullaah) said: Know O my brother! May Allaah grant us and you His pleasure and make us from those who have awe of Him and fear of Him as He should be feared. Indeed, the flesh of the scholars is poisonous and Allaah’s way of disclosing the hidden affairs of those who diminish their worth is well known. [Source: Tabyeen Kadhib Al-Muftaree Fee Maa Nusiba Ilal-Imaam Abil Hasan Al-Ash’aree: page 29]
Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said: None violates the honour of the scholars who are upon the truth, except one of three (people): Either a hypocrite known for (his) hypocrisy, or an evil sinner who hates the scholars because they prevent him from his sinful (acts) of disobedience, or a misguided hizbi who hates the scholars because they neither agree with his hizbiyyah nor with his deviated views. [Source: Muhaadaraat Fil Aqeedah Wad-Dawa 2/190]
Thirdly: The treacherous Bid’ee said that any Shaikh who holds this principle –obviously in the deceitful manner he presented it – then he is free from it. So here the malicious Bid’ee generalised his statement, but the fact of the matter is that there is no scholar of Ahlus Sunnah who holds this principle in the manner the bid’ee presented it; rather the people who hold this principle (in the manner the bid’ee presented it) are the Haddaadiyyah, just as Shaikh Rabee stated: ‘’They (i.e. haddaadiyyah) declare a person an innovator when he fails to declare a person who has fallen into innovation an innovator.’’ However, this loud mouthed miscreant intended nothing else but malice and outright slander, so he concealed the specific details in this Mas’alah. Therefore, let the readers examine for themselves the details regarding this Mas’alah.

Finally: After reading the short article in the above link, the reader clearly sees that the bid’ee concealed the detail explanation of this Mas’alah in order to hurl slander at us. The Bid’ee is wilfully oblivious of the fact that he cannot escape with the likes of this distortion and cannot seek to declare us misguided except with unambiguous knowledge based proofs.
This shows that this man is an establsihed malicious liar, deceiver and distorter. Shaytaan has made lying against the Salafiyyoon fair seeming to him, so he has no choice but to lie against the Salafiyyoon when circumstances make it feasible to do so. We ask Allaah to protect us from his evil, slanderous tongue- the wicked tongue that slanders Salafiyyoon and praises Mubtadi’ah. Aameen
