Fatwas > Miscellaneous Fatwas (Jumada Al-Thany) > Saying the Khalaf are wiser, while the Salaf are more knowledgeable
The first and the third questions of Fatwa no. 17464
Q 1: Once in an Islamic lesson, a professor stated that the Khalaf (later scholars) are wiser, while the Salaf (righteous predecessors) are more knowledgeable; is this correct?
What is meant by "more knowledgeable" and "wiser"?

A: This is a false statement meant to disparage the Salaf of this nation, accuse them of lack of knowledge and wisdom and glorify the scholars of Kalam (a discipline that searches for answers to creedal issues using logic) for their knowledge and wisdom. Theologians were the first to make this statement. Inferentially, it follows that the successive generations are better and more knowledgeable than the preceding most righteous generations.
the Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: "It is known to those who reflect upon the Qur'an, the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet), and points where Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream) agreed that the best generation of this nation in terms of deeds, sayings, beliefs, and all virtues is the first generation, i.e. the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet), then the one after, then the one after them.
(Part No. 2Page No. 31)
This was reported in a number of authentic Hadiths from the Prophet (peace be upon him) in this regard. The Sahabah are better than later generations in every aspect; knowledge, actions, faith, character, deeds, and worship. Thus, they are most worthy of explaining every detailed point of religion. None may argue this evident fundamental except those who deny the well-established and known Islamic facts; and Allah, knowing that they know the truth, left them astray." `Abdullah ibn Mas`ud (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "Anyone who wishes to adopt a certain example should follow those who have passed away, for the living are not safe from Fitnah (temptation). They are the Sahabah of Muhammad who have the purest hearts, the best knowledgeable, and are the least pretentious of all Muslims. They are the people that Allah chose to accompany his Prophet (peace be upon him) and to establish Islam. So affirm their status and hold firmly to their guidance, for indeed they were on the right path." Someone once said: "Hold fast to the traditions of the Salaf, for they brought forth what is sufficient and curative and no good ever arose after them which they were not knowledgeable of."
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: No time will come but the following time is worse than it,
(Part No. 2Page No. 32)
until you meet your Lord.
 How can there be a better time than theirs while they witnessed the revelation of the best knowledge, i.e. the Knowledge of Allah! This will never happen.
How precise are the words of Al-Shafi`y (may Allah be merciful to him) who wrote in his book "Al-Risalah": "They, i.e. the Sahabah, are superior to us in knowledge, reason, belief, virtue and every means through which knowledge or guidance is attained. Indeed, their opinion is more beneficial to us than ours to ourselves." (Al-Fatawa; vol. 4, pp. 157-158)

Flashback 10 years ago the Atlanta Salafis were right about the Reality of the Bakheel Talker aka Aqeel Walker aka "A Dangerous Man" aka the one who lied on Shaykh Muhammad bin Hadee

A poem from the website assalafi.com from 10yrs ago exposing the reality of the bakheel talker titled:

"A Dangerous Man"

This is a man like those we’ve seen so many times

Stopping at nothing to get what he want, playing with the people’s mind

Eloquent in his speech, Qalla Allah, Qalla Rasulalah, upon the understanding of our Salafus Saalih

When the smoke has cleared you will see, that he is the one that is Taalih

A Dangerous Man

A man that calls himself a student of knowledge He is self taught and never been a real student of anyone at all

Was given a chance to go Shaykh Muqbil’s camp, but instead went to a Qutubee school kicking it with them having himself a ball

Then came back to the States giving us the impression that he went to the camp and met the Shaykh first hand

So beware my Salafee brothers, beware of this dangerous man

A Dangerous Man

Calling Shaykh Ahmad getting fatwas, coming back and twisting up his words

He might not be from Atlanta, but I tell you this is a dirty bird

Saying that the Shaykh advised the leadership at Masjid As-Salafis Saalih to step down

We went all through his translations and nowhere were these statements found

He said that Shaykh Abdullah ar-Rukbaan said the same thing to him

The Shaykh said, and I quote, “if they are doing their jobs no one has the right to oppose them”

A Dangerous Man

He went to the park on Yawmul Jumuah, watching the people sign a petition getting ready to start a rally

We have it on tape you can hear it for yourself,And see how they were acting ignorant and alley

Coming before the leadership demanding that they step down reading some Gettysburg Address

Hizbees all in our Salafee Masjid with them, witnessing this messThe Da’wah has never been about numbers, and we are going to keep doing the best that we can

With or without this building we are better off with out this dangerous man

A Dangerous Man

Advising the Salafees of Atlanta to abandon the Masjid, like you are a Shaykh giving fatawas

We got in an argument one time, then I was on the internet being compared to Abu Mulimah in less than an hourTelling Shaykh Ahmad we think we are like the Muslim Rulers and you know this is not the case

You are a man that I see clearly, a man with another face

A Dangerous Man

The Da’wah is not about you, so stop being so high on yourself

Insha Allah, we are going to stay firm upon the manhaj, like we did the first time that you left

You were still defending Bilal Phillips not knowing what was going on at allI advise you to fear Allah, and stop listening to the brothers that used to read The Final Call

A Dangerous Man

Through your actions you have split a community in two

So take a good look at the people you have surrounding youThese are the same people you have warned against at one time or another

Calling them event Salafees and two-faced liars, so you need to wake up my brother

The only thing that you had to do is come in the office and talk to us like a man

Then none of this stuff would have gotten out of hand

A Dangerous Man

Now you are holding Jumuah over a brother’s house, and you know this doesn’t make any sense at all

People rejoicing in the split, hoping that the Masjid would fall

Shaykh Muhammad Bazmool gave us a fatwa, saying whoever starts another Masjid here it would be Masjid DarrahIt’s a long road back Abu Musli, I mean Abu Usa, I mean you know who you are

You are a dangerous man

Why is There so Much Talk about Shaykh Rabee? - Shaykh Salih al-Luhaydan

Moosaa Richardson flatlines the false claims of those who lied on Shaykh Muhammad bin Hadee

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Merciful...

As-Salaamu 'alaykum,

Shameless liars have been claiming that one of our scholars, Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee, professor at the Islamic University of Madeenah and teacher at the Prophet's Masjid (sallallaahu 'alayhe wa sallam), has claimed that it is an obligation to visit Shaykh Rabee' al-Madkhalee when one visits the city of Makkah.

Perhaps they have used up all their "husn ath-thann" (good thoughts), pouring it generously all over illusionists, storytellers, ignorant TV stars, and those who spread evil about our scholars and their students! Has all the husn ath-thann gone to people whose atrocities require us to be suspicious of them and cautious of their teachings!?

So when it comes to real scholars who have every right to the husn ath-thann of the Muslims, especially the students of knowledge, that we return to them and ask them for the meanings of what confuses us of their statements, there is nothing left for them?! It seems the people of fitnah have used all their excuses up, bending over backwards to defend people of falsehood!

How many times have we heard people blaming the critics of dangerous callers for "not verifying" - "not calling the 'shaykh'" - "not advising privately" - "openly attacking"  etc...

Yet, with one of our recognized and celebrated scholars, Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee, we find them seeking no excuse, jumping the gun and rushing to conclusions, accusing the shaykh and everyone associated with him of extremism (ghuluw) and all kinds of accusations!

The hadeeth clearly applies here:

إياكم والظن فإن الظن أكذب الحديث
Be warned of suspicion, as suspicion is the most false of all speech!
[Bukhaaree/Muslim]

When asked to verify and simply ask the shaykh to explain and clarify his statement, they refuse and promise you that they have understood, NO NEED to ask the shaykh at all? Silly young people with Arabic-English dictionaries accuse, convict, and sentence the scholars of Islam? And they claim to be students of knowledge?! How ridiculous to think they could be considered students of knowledge, when they don't even know the basic manners of how to interact with other Muslims.

You find a common Muslim shyly and politely suggesting that we not rush to conclusions and actually contact the shaykh and ask him to explain his statement that we think is mistaken, and such a basic manner in Islam is shot down by the supposed "student" as unnecessary, as the Arabic-English lexicon is sufficient! What foolishness. What an absolute disgrace!

This morning, I asked Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee (may Allaah preserve him) for a statement in response to those who claim that he obliges Muslims to visit Shaykh Rabee' when they are in Makkah, a statement we can spread in response to the claimants.  The question and answer went as follows:

سلام عليكم شيخ محمد

بعض الناس ينسبون إليكم إيجاب زيارة الشيخ ربيع على جميع السلفيين. وفي الغرب خاصة استغله المميعة حجة على "الغلاة" ... فهل لكم من توضيح لمقصودكم نبلغه عنكم وجزيتم خيرا

Salaam 'alaykum Shaykh Muhammad,

Some people are attributing to you that you make it obligatory on all Salafees to visit Shaykh Rabee', and there are mumayyi'ah (people who attempt to make things confusing) who have taken this is some kind of proof against the "ghulat" (extremists). Do you have a clarification of your intended meaning we could share on your behalf, may you be rewarded with good? [end of question]

وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته أما بعد:

فهذا كذب  وهؤلاء ما أكثر أكاذيبهم. والجواب عليهم أن يقال لهم: هاتوا برهانكم إن كنتم صادقين. أين قوله بالوجوب؟

 Wa 'alaykum as-salaamu wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh, ammaa ba'd (as for what follows):

That is a lie, and how many are their lies! The response is to say to them: "Bring your proof if you are truthful. Where is his statement about an obligation?" [end of shaykh's words]

Gossipers must cease their gossip. Return to the scholars and ask them about their statements. Do not force them to hold positions they do not agree to because of the rushed conclusions of immature students with chips on their shoulders. Let's get back to practicing our Religion here brothers and sisters.

Stop wasting all your good thoughts and optimistic interpretations on bankrupt individuals who do not deserve it, and give the scholars their rights.

For further clarification on the words of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee, review this compilation of his words on the topic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXpHFbZrs8A

was-salaam.

Moosaa Richardson comments on the foolish concept of "dropping lablels for the sake of unity"

As-Salaam 'alaykum

I'd like to share a question I responded to in the comments section of Bakkah.net, hoping for its benefit to reach people and help them understand the falsehood of false ideas being spewed by ignorant people speaking in the name of Islaam:

It amazes me that people who claim to follow the Quran and Sunnah believe Muslims can unite with Rafidas if we just stop calling them Rafidas. What unity does a muslim want with people who curse and hate the best carriers of this religion?! (the cherished Companions)

Answer: Jazaak Allaahu khayran for your comment. I totally agree. It is absolutely foolish to think that Muslims can unite with the Raafidhah, for example, by simply “dropping the labels”, so the Muslims of Ahlus-Sunnah, called either Sunnees or Salafees, meaning: their religion is to follow the Book and Sunnah upon the understanding of the Companions and early Muslims (Salaf), which is the only true Islaam, and without doubt, it is the Jamaa’ah, the Saved Sect, and the Siraat al-Mustaqeem… these people MUST drop this distinction that the scholars of Islaam throughout history have always used to clarify the correct Islaam from the false paths attributed to it. This label of distinction is to be dropped and we are to unite with people of heretic beliefs because they also drop their labels?! So now our unity is based on the shunning of labels (which identify people and their beliefs)?! And this is made to be the “saved sect”? What a ridiculous load of rubbish, the natural result of people in the West with no knowledge of Islaam taking positions to give fatwaas, leading masses of people into confusion in their Religion. May Allaah keep us away from such foolish fatwaas.

This is why the Salafee Da’wah is so clear and easy to follow. We ask our Salafee question that ALWAYS distinguishes true Islaam from falsehood: This idea you have (shunning labels being key to Muslim unity), is it something understood and practiced by the Companions? If it is, it is the Deen of Allaah. If it is not, then it is innovation and misguidance. This is what true Islaam is based on. So the Quran and the Sunnah is not left to any person’s re-interpretation and opinion. The Book and the Sunnah are to be understood how those who witnessed their revelation understood them, otherwise the concept is clear falsehood. Every Muslim who understands his religion comprehends this and takes this as his way in order to see past people’s claims and into their realities. And Allaah knows best.

Accepting NaseeHa, and Not Rejecting it!

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah 
Amma-ba'd
 
Accepting NaseeHa, and Not Rejecting it! 
 
 
Allaah, Subhanahu wa Ta'aala, revealed to His Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam): 
 
عَفَا اللَّهُ عَنْكَ لِمَ أَذِنتَ لَهُمْ حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَكَ الَّذِينَ صَدَقُوا وَتَعْلَمَ الْكَاذِبِينَ
 
May Allaah forgive you (oh Muhammad). Why did you grant them leave (for remaining behind, you should have persisted as regards your order to them to proceed on Jihaad), until those who told the truth were seen by you in a clear light, and you had known the liars? (At-Tawbah, ayah 43) Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that 'Awn said, "Have you heard criticism softer than this, starting with forgiveness before criticism." 
 
Allaah's Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said: Al-Kibru Battrul-Haqq wa ghamtu Nas (Pride is to reject the truth and look down upon the people). [Muslim (1/65)]  
 
Allaah, 'Azza-wa-Jal, said:  
 
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُجَادِلُونَ فِي آيَاتِ اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ سُلْطَانٍ أَتَاهُمْ إِنْ فِي صُدُورِهِمْ إِلاَّ كِبْر
 
Verily, those who dispute about the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allaah, without any authority having come to them, there is nothing else in their breasts except pride [to accept you (Muhammad) as a Messenger of Allaah and to obey you]... (Ghafir, ayah 56)
 
Imam As-Sa'dee (rahimahullaah) said: "As for those whose arrogance and pride prevent them from complying with parts of the truth - because it opposes their personal opinions or their whims and desires - then such people are not kuffaar (unbelievers), but such an action necessitates them being punished in accordance with what they have of kibr (pride). This is why the Scholars have agreed that whenever the Sunnah (guidance and way) of the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) has been explained to anyone, then it is not lawful for him to turn away from it to the saying of someone else, whoever and whatever status he may have.

So it is obligatory upon the seeker of knowledge to give complete and absolute precedence to the saying of Allaah and the saying of His Messenger over and above the saying of anyone else, and that he should make the basis to which he returns, and the foundation upon which he builds: following the guidance of the Prophet, striving hard to understand what is intended from it, and following this both inwardly and outwardly. When a person conforms to this great principal, then he has indeed reached goodness and excellence, and all his errors will be forgiven to him since his overall objective is to follow that which has been prescribed upon him. So his errors are excused due to his striving his best to recognize and comply with the truth - and this is humbling oneself to the truth.
" [1]   
 
  
It is reported from Imam Sufyaan ibn 'Uyainah (rahimahullaah) that he said: "Whoever's sin was because of [carnal] desires, hope for him (as he may repent and be forgiven); but whoever's sin was out of pride, fear for him. For indeed, Aadam ('alayhi salam) sinned out of simple desire, and was forgiven; whereas Iblees sinned out of pride, and was cursed." [2]
 
Shaikh Saalih Ibn Fawzaan al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) said: "Rejecting sincere advice is one of the characteristics of the disbelievers." [3] 
 
The people being truthfully advised or corrected should not take it personal. They're not being insulted; rather they're being helped and offered a helping hand. Allaah has chosen a slave or slaves to teach you of His (Allaah's) knowledge. Remember the 'ilm (knowledge) belongs to Allaah, Subhanahu wa Ta'aala. The correct knowledge belongs to Allaah, and He gives of it to whom He chooses. ...And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills... (Baqarah, ayah 255; Ayat al-Kursee)

So if someone truthfully corrects you, he is not insulting you or seeking after (your) faults; rather he is telling you this statement, belief, action, or principle of yours is not from the knowledge that Allaah Ta'aala sent down nor in accordance with it, and instead it will distance you (and those who follow you in this) from Allaah, and will annoy Allaah. [4]
 
Rather this advice - if it is correct and confirmed, of course - is the result of Allaah accepting your supplications "Oh my Lord, increase me in knowledge," and "Guide us to The Straight Path." Are you then going to complain about whom Allaah sent to advise you? Are you going to complain that the one giving you correct advice or the one correcting your error is not your boy from back in the day? Or he's not up to (your) standard?
 
May Allaah forgive you. Are you not seeking to get nearer to Allaah, Ta'aala? So if the advice is in accordance with revelation (Qur`an and Sunnah upon their intended meanings), are you seriously going to prevent yourself from benefiting and getting nearer to Allaah because this advisor is not your boy from back in the day? Or he's not up to (your) standard?
 
How is this attitude different from that of those polytheists of Quraish who complained that Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) was not from the prominent, according to them? 
 
وَقَالُوا لَوْلاَ نُزِّلَ هَذَا الْقُرْآنُ عَلَى رَجُل ٍ مِنَ الْقَرْيَتَيْنِ عَظِيم
 
And they say: "Why is not this Qur`an sent down to some great man of the two towns (Makkah and Taa`if)?" (Az-Zukhruf, ayah 31) Meaning, why was this Qur`an not revealed to some man who was great and prominent in their eyes, from the two towns, i.e., Makkah and At-Ta`if. This was the view of Ibn 'Abbas (radiallaahu 'anhumma), Ikrimah, Muhammad bin Ka'b Al-Qurazi, Qatadah, As-Suddi and Ibn Zayd (rahimahumullaah)...
 
Allaah responded to their rejection by saying:
 
أَهُمْ يَقْسِمُونَ رَحْمَةَ رَبِّكَ
 
Is it they who would portion out the Mercy of your Lord?.. (Az-Zukhruf, ayah 32) Meaning, the matter has nothing to do with them; it is for Allaah to decide. Allaah knows best where to direct His Message, and He does not reveal it except to the one who is the purest in heart and soul, and of the noblest descent... [5]
 
So they rejected the message from their Creator and Lord due to the fact that the Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) was not prominent in their eyes. 
 
This is not from intellect.
 
And neither was and is the Jews' rejection of Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) - even though they recognize him as they recognize their own sons - simply because he was an Arab. And this also shows that a disease such as pride or envy or other than it can prevent or hamper one's acceptance of the truth when the truth reaches him. [6]  
 
It is reported that Muhammad Al-Baaqir (rahimahullaah) said: "Never does any pride enter the heart of a man except that his intelligence decreases by the same amount." [7]

[3] Concise Commentary on Kitab at-Tawheed
 
[4] Imam Muhammad Nasir-ud-Deen al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) said: "And know that whoever abandons the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and fanatically and blindly follows something else, or rejects the Sunnah because it differs with his 'Aql (intellect) or his hawaa` (desires) or his inclinations, or adds some principles for which Allaah has not sent down any authority, verily he has wronged [himself] and annoyed Allaah, Tabaraka wa Ta'aalaa, and His Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and he is one who is in extreme danger.

Allaah, 'Azza wa Jal, said: Verily those who annoy Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), Allaah has cursed them in this world, and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating torment. (Al-Ahzab, ayah 57) 

And from this annoyance is that they don't obey His commands and that they abandon His (Allaah's) sayings and follow the sayings of someone else fanatically, and imitating someone else (other than His Messenger), shunning his (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) sayings, and comparing his sayings to those principles which they have invented for themselves. And if there is any similarity between them (their principles and the sayings of the Messenger), they accept it, but if what the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) brought differs with these principles which they have invented for themselves, they either change it (the saying of the Prophet) [to fit their desires], or reject it with the most foul and ugly of rejections. And from the things with which they harm and annoy him (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) is abusing his Companions and withholding the rights of his wives (radiallaahu 'anhum). So can there be any harm or annoyance greater than this?!

And in short, whoever harms and annoys the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), then the threat of Allaah's La'nah (curse) and severe punishment [mentioned in these ayaat] is over him. And Allaah Knows Best.

[6] Allaah said (what means): And when there came to them (the Jews), a Book (this Qur`an) from Allaah confirming what is with them [The Tawrah and the Injeel], although aforetime they had invoked Allaah (for the coming of Muhammad) in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then when there came to them that which they had recognized, they disbelieved in it. So let the Curse of Allaah be on the disbelievers. How bad is that for which they have sold their ownselves, that they should disbelieve in that which Allaah has revealed (the Qur`an), grudging that Allaah should reveal of His Grace unto whom He will of His slaves. So they have drawn on themselves wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers, there is disgracing torment. (Al-Baqarah, ayah 89-90)

O Seeker of Good: Come Close in the Blessed Month of Ramadaan

Be Men in the Last 10 days of Ramadhan

Wife Praying Next To Husband | Al-'Allâmah Sâlih al-Fawzân

Be warned of false principles, such as "I gotta Hear his Take"

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah
Amma-ba'd
Be warned of false principles, such as "I gotta Hear his Take"  
Due to their refusal to submit to the ayaat of the Qur`an and the ahadeeth from the Sunnah that refute their ideology and heresy, Ahlul-Bid'ah come up with lies and false principles to conceal the truth, defend their falsehood, and confuse and misguide and deceive others into joining them. From the false principles that are sadly latching on is Ahlul-Bid'ah's statement about the one whose deviance is already established, "I gotta hear his take."
The simple answer is: No, you Don't!!
If the deviant's deviance is established, then you don't gotta hear his take, you don't gotta hear his opinion, you don't gotta hear his view. You don't.  
Over here is his deviance - it's been recorded, and he has not repented - and it is deviant because it opposes Allaah's statement in this ayah of this soorah and this statement of Allaah's Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) in this hadeeth. If the deviant didn't carry misguidance that was already established or witnessed or recorded, then he wouldn't be refuted in the first place! From all of mankind and jinn, the Salafees are the furthest away from slandering someone. And from all of mankind and jinn, the Salafees are the most concerned with justice and staying away from oppressing others. 
If the deviant's falsehood is confirmed, then don't ask the person of falsehood for "his take," or "his opinion," or "his view." If you went to a deviant with this objective of "hearing his take," the deviant would use that opportunity to defend his falsehood, put doubts into your heart, make you lean toward him, make you soft toward him, and eventually make you soft toward falsehood in general.
If what he said is falsehood - due to its opposition to the Qur`an and Sunnah upon the understanding of the Salaf - then why would you want to hear his take? Don't you know that Allaah said:
فَمَاذَا بَعْدَ الْحَقِّ إِلاَّ الضَّلاَل
...So after the truth, what else can there be except error?.. (Yunus, ayah 32)
Do you doubt your religion?! Do you have doubts concerning the revelation? If it is shown to you that the statement of so and so opposes the Qur`an and Sunnah, do you think it's even possible that so and so is right? Do you think it's even possible that what the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) conveyed from Allaah is wrong? [1] Then why would you want to hear his take?  
Subhan-Allaah! Free from any imperfection or deficiency or fault is Allaah!
Ya ikhwaa` wa khawaat, don't be curious about false beliefs, false methodologies, false principles...
Again, no one is preventing you from confirming someone's deviance through reliable sources, but once it is confirmed, then don't refer the falsehood to the people of falsehood. The falsehood is referred to the people of truth, to the people of knowledge who precisely relay the Sharee'ah, and distinguish the truth from falsehood using the Qur`an and Sunnah upon their intended meanings. 
Would you go to a priest or minister in church or a rabbi in a synogogue or a budhist wherever they gather or a grave-worshipper and say, "the Muslims are saying that your worship of the creation is disbelief and polytheism, what is your take on that?" This priest or rabbi or budhist or grave-worshipper would use this opportunity to attempt to justify his Kufr (disbelief, polytheism) - and call you to the worship of the creation! - attempting to make you overlook the undeniable fact that worship of the creation is the greatest of all prohibitions in all of Allaah's revelations. 
Would you allow your son or daughter to go to a drug dealer and say, "the doctors and people of medicine are saying these drugs that you sell are bad for us, what is your take on that?" This drug dealer is going to talk your children into a "sample" or "score."
Would you stick your head into a Lion's Den?
Of course not!
Again, don't refer the falsehood to the people of falsehood. Refer the falsehood to the people of knowledge, who precisely relay the Sharee'ah and clarify the truth and refute the falsehood with proofs - not fearing the blame of the blamers.
Allaah, Ta'aala, said:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنْ تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْء ٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِنْ كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ ذَلِكَ خَيْر ٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلا
Oh you who believe! Obey Allaah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad), and those who are in authority from amongst you (Muslims). (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allaah and His Messenger, if you believe in Allaah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. (An-Nisa`, ayah 59) As is well known - after the death of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) - this command to refer matters is referring to the Qur`an and Sunnah. If you don't know, ask the true people of knowledge who relay the Sharee'ah and use as their proofs the Qur`an and Sunnah upon the understanding of the Sahaaba (radiallaahu 'anhum).  
فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِنْ كُنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ 
...Ask the people of the knowledge, if you do not know. (Al-Anbiya`, ayah 7)
Don't refer the falsehood to Ahlul-Bid'ah such as Yahya al-Hajoori or Shadeed Muhammad or Ibn Muneer or Tahir Wyatt or Yusuf Estes or Abu Usamah Goldie or Anjem Choudary or the people at Bridges TV or Madeenah(dot)com or Baseerah(dot)org or Oloom or SalafiManhaj(dot)com or Fatwa[hyphen]Online? Don't contact these liars who are upon impure baatil (falsehood); don't visit their websites of deception, don't listen to their kalaam![2]
Keep in mind the following: whatever of good Ahlul-Bid'ah may possess, you can find it with the Salafees without the risk.[3] There is no good - at all - that Ahlul-Bid'ah have that cannot be found with the Salafees. It's not possible.
Because the whole Religion has been preserved, and the Qur`an and Sunnah - the two sources of the Religion - are the two sources the Salafees (alongside the legislated Ijma') adhere to and restrict themselves to, in accordance with the Prophet's statement: I have left amongst you that which if you hold onto you will never go astray: the Book of Allaah and my Sunnah. [Al-Haakim; Hasan hadeeth] 
Allaah has guided the Salafees to adhere to His revelation, and not seek to get closer to Allaah with something opposing what He revealed, in accordance with the Prophet's tremendous statement: By Him in Whose Hand is my soul, I have not left anything which brings you closer to Paradise and distances you from the Fire except that I have commanded you with it. And I have not left anything which brings you closer to the Fire and distances you from Paradise except that I have prohibitted you from it. [Ahmad, Ibn Khuzaimah]  
Whereas Ahlul-Bid'ah - in their beliefs, methodology and worship - do not adhere to nor restrict themselves to what Allaah Ta'aala revealed.   
Ahlul-Bid'ah misinterpret texts with intentional distortions, opinions, desires, false principles, false beliefs and ideologies, and take some texts while rejecting others, and take some texts while concealing others.    
As for the Salafees - who adhere to The Original Affair - their sources are: "Allaah said," "His Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said," "the Sahaaba said."  
The following is a parable that the people of knowledge have used of two glasses: the first glass has nothing but pure water, whereas the second glass has water from the same source but additionally has spit and phlegm and dirt and some unrecognizable dirty particles. Which sane individual would rather drink the second glass instead of the first glass? Likewise, the bid'ah of Yahya al-Hajoori and Shadeed Muhammad and Yusuf Estes and Abu Usamah Goldie and the rest of Ahlul-Bid'ah is more harmful to you and your akhira than the spit and phlegm and dirt and unrecognizable particles in that second glass! The source of the Salafees is only the Qur`an and Sunnah upon their revealed intended meanings. Ahlul-Bid'ah will use one or some of the texts from the Qur`an and Sunnah but then misinterpret them and surround them with bid'ah, opinions, desires and false principles and false beliefs and sometimes even Shirk. So don't be deceived.
Don't be curious, ya ikhwaa wa khawaat. This is one of the tremendous wisdoms of learning the Usool and the 'aqeedah of Tawheed before the remaining pillars and actions of Islaam.
If you have no doubt that Allaah is Al-Haqq (the Truth), and His Promise is Truth, His revelation is Truth, His Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) is As-Saddiq Al-Madooq (The truthful with Allaah, and the confirmed), then why would you seek the take of these deviants? Do you have doubts? Then don't be curious about the falsehood of the people of falsehood. 
Allaah said:

اللَّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ لَيَجْمَعَنَّكُمْ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيه ِ وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حَدِيثا
Allaah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). Surely, He will gather you together on the Day of Resurrection about which there is no doubt. And who is truer in statement than Allaah? (An-Nisa`, ayah 87)   
And Allaah said:
وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ سَنُدْخِلُهُمْ جَنَّات ٍ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أَبَدا ً وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقّا ً وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ قِيلا
But those who believe (in Tawheed) and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to the Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e. in Paradise) to dwell therein forever. Allaah's Promise is the Truth, and whose words can be truer than those of Allaah? (Of course, none). (An-Nisa`, ayah 122)
Imam Muhammad Nasir-ud-Deen al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) said: "And know that whoever abandons the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and fanatically and blindly follows something else, or rejects the Sunnah because it differs with his 'Aql (intellect) or his hawaa` (desires) or his inclinations, or adds some principles for which Allaah has not sent down any authority, verily he has wronged [himself] and annoyed Allaah, Tabaraka wa Ta'aalaa, and His Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and he is one who is in extreme danger.

Allaah, 'Azza wa Jal, said: Verily those who annoy Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), Allaah has cursed them in this world, and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating torment. (Al-Ahzab, ayah 57)

And from this annoyance is that they don't obey His commands and that they abandon His (Allaah's) sayings and follow the sayings of someone else fanatically, and imitating someone else (other than His Messenger), shunning his (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) sayings, and comparing his sayings to those principles which they have invented for themselves. And if there is any similarity between them (their principles and the sayings of the Messenger), they accept it, but if what the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) brought differs with these principles which they have invented for themselves, they either change it (the saying of the Prophet) [to fit their desires], or reject it with the most foul and ugly of rejections. And from the things with which they harm and annoy him (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) is abusing his Companions and withholding the rights of his wives (radiallaahu 'anhum). So can there be any harm or annoyance greater than this?!

And in short, whoever harms and annoys the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), then the threat of Allaah's La'nah (curse) and severe punishment [mentioned in these ayaat] is over him. And Allaah Knows Best.
" [4]
And the invitation and call of these deviants is a test from Allaah - in truth - and shaytan and his troops have no authority over those who are sincere and have Eeman.
Allaah said:
إِنَّه ُُ لَيْسَ لَه ُُ سُلْطَانٌ عَلَى الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَلَى رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ إِنَّمَا سُلْطَانُه ُُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ يَتَوَلَّوْنَه ُُ وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ بِه ِِ مُشْرِكُونَ 
Verily! He has no power over those who believe and put their trust only in their Lord (Allaah). His power is only over those who obey and follow him (Satan), and those who join partners with Him (Allaah). (An-Nahl, ayah 100)
and when Shaytan said:
قَالَ رَبِّ بِمَا أَغْوَيْتَنِي لَأُزَيِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلَأُغْوِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ
[Iblees (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Because you misled me, I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead them all. (Al-Hijr, ayah 39)  
Allaah, Ta'aala, said:
إِنَّ عِبَادِي لَيْسَ لَكَ عَلَيْهِمْ سُلْطَان ٌ إِلاَّ مَنِ اتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْغَاوِينَ وَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ لَمَوْعِدُهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَلَهَا سَبْعَةُ أَبْوَاب ٍ لِكُلِّ بَاب ٍ مِنْهُمْ جُزْء ٌ مَقْسُوم
"Certainly, you shall have no authority over My slaves, except those who follow you of the Ghaaween (Mushrikoon and those who go astray, criminals, polytheists, and evil-doers, etc.). And surely, Hell is the promised place for them all. It (Hell) has seven gates, for each of those gates is a (special) class (of sinners) assigned." (Al-Hijr, ayat 42-44)
After bringing these ayaat, Shaikh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah (d. 728H, rahimahulaah) then said: "Therefore, the people who have sincerity and al-Eemaan, then the Shaytaan has no authority over them." [5]
Again, shaytaan has no authority over those with Ikhlaas and Eeman! This is from the perfect mercy and wisdom of Allaah, Subhanahu wa Ta'aala.  
Notes:
[1] Imam 'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Naasir As-Sa'dee (rahimahullaah, d. 1376H) said: "No one's belief in Muhammad (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) is complete until he knows that every single thing he came with [conveyed from Allaah] is the Truth, and that it is impossible for one to find any evidence - whether based on rationality, scientific findings, or anything else - that contradicts what he came with [conveyed from Allaah]. In reality, true rational thinking and current scientific findings all testify to the truthfulness and correctness of the Messenger (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam)." From Imam As-Sa'dee's highly beneficial book "Essential Questions and Answers Concerning The Foundations of Eeman & Obstacles in the Path of Eeman," Second Translated Edition, pg. 30.
[2] Allaah said:

وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَى عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِباً أُوْلَائِكَ يُعْرَضُونَ عَلَى رَبِّهِمْ وَيَقُولُ الأَشْهَادُ هَاؤُلاَء الَّذِينَ كَذَبُوا عَلَى رَبِّهِمْ أَلاَ لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ عَلَى الظَّالِمِينَ
 
And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allaah. Such will be brought before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, "These are the ones who lied against their Lord!" No doubt! the curse of Allaah is on the Dhaalimoon (polytheists, wrong-doers, oppressors, etc.). (Hud, ayah 18)
Allaah, The Exalted, explains the condition of those who lie against Him and that their scandal in the Hereafter will be presented before the heads of creation (for testimony) from the angels, Messengers, Prophets and the rest of mankind and Jinn. This is just as Imam Ahmad recorded from Safwan bin Muhriz. Safwan said: "I was holding the hand of Ibn 'Umar when a man was brought to him. The man said: 'How did you hear the Messenger of Allaah describe An-Najwa (secret counsel or confidential talk) on the Day of Resurrection?' Ibn 'Umar said: 'I heard him say:
Verily, Allaah, the Mighty and Sublime, will draw near to the believer, and He will place His shade over him. He will conceal him from the people and make him confess to his sins. He will say to him, 'Do you recognize this sin? Do you recognize that sin? Do you recognize such and such sin?' This will continue until He makes him confess to all of his sins and he (the believer) will think to himself that he is about to be destroyed. Then Allaah will say, 'Verily, I have concealed these sins for you in the worldly life and I have forgiven you for them today.' Then he (the believer) will be given his Book of good deeds. As for the disbelievers and the hypocrites, the witnesses will say, 'These are the ones who lied against their Lord! No doubt! The curse of Allaah is on the wrongdoers).'" Imams Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim (rahimahumullaah) both recorded this narration in the SaHeehain.  [Tafseer of Soorat Hud in the abridged Tafseer of Imam Ibn Katheer (rahimahullaah)]
