Shaykh Rabee' on Warns From those Who Dawn The Garments of Salafiyyah Yet Oppose its Usool and Manhaj


All praise is due to Allaah, prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allaah, upon his family and companions and whoever follows his guidance.

To proceed:

Then let Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah know in truth, not just as a mere claim, that their da'wah is exposed (i.e. open, susceptible) to the People of Tribulations (Fitan) and Desires (Ahwaa), and they do not become tired of (devising) plots, doubts and tribulations [placing them] in the midst of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah and spreading the causes of separation.

And there has emerged a new band (i.e. group), in these (past few) years who have warn the gown of the Sunnah, however they oppose Ahl us-Sunnah in their Usool and their Manhaj and in their application.

And this new band has adopted certain principles in order to stand up against the manhaj of Ahl us-Sunnah and against the fataawaa of the Scholars in refuting Innovation and warning from its people. Just as this band has set up principles in order to reject these fataawaa which are based upon the Book and the Sunnah. Such as:

1. "We do not blindly follow anyone, and we are the people of daleel (evidence)"

2. "No one has any guardianship over us, and nor do we have any fatherhoods (over us) and nor any patronships".

3. The claim of "tathabbut", meaning that they reject the verdicts of the scholars and their judgments upon the people of innovation, and warning against them (the innovations) and them (their people), by this claim (of theirs) that they make "tathabbut" (make their own verification), and this is in relation to their other principles that have just been mentioned.

And from another angle, they have devised certain principles for the defence of Ahl ul-Bid'ah, and their theoreticians, all in order to oppose the principles of the Salafi, and their manhaj in criticizing the people of Bid'ah. Such as:

1. "Carrying the mujmal upon the mufassal", and they do not actually intend the mujmal and mufassal in the view of the Usooliyyeen, and the Scholars of Islaam, but they actually intend a mujmal and mufassal that they have innovated themselves.

2. "We correct (the mistake) but we do not critizise (the individual) or destroy (the person)", so they consider the criticism of Innovation and its people and warning from them, to be "destruction", and they themselves do not correct (mistakes) and instead they destroy Ahl us-Sunnah and wage the severest war against them, just as they wage a war against their foundations which are derived from the Book and the Sunnah.

3. The manhaj of Muwaazanaat, which they actually implement themselves, and then they, in arrogance, reject that they have actually applied it.

4. Their saying "We wish for a vast, open manhaj that suits Ahl us-Sunnah and suits the Ummah (as a whole)", and then they try to explain this in a false way, and their implementation of this actually exposes them, and as for those whose who try to portray outwardly that they do not implement it, then this support and loyalty to the one who does implement it exposes them.
