Adhering to the Sunnah: A Gathering between Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee and the Canadian Students of Madeenah

Light as salam ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaah,

Below is a portion of what Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee said at a sitting between the Canadian students in Madeenah.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee (may Allaah preserve him) said:

During these times that we live in, those who speak have become numerous; those who speak with knowledge, truth and adherence [to the Book and the Sunnah], those who speak with desires and evil intentions, and those who speak with ignorance. All three groups are present, and the callers to falsehood are more plentiful.


Do not be deceived that a caller to falsehood is praised, has degrees or a high status in the life of this world, because this is of no significance. What is of significance is whether his speech is in accordance to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, may the Salaat and Salaam be upon him, and what his righteous Caliphs and companions were upon – may Allaah be pleased with them all.

The Root Causes Behind the Excessive Differing between Ahlus-Sunnah

split road As salam ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaah,

I read this and found it appropriate in light of the differing that we have witnessed in the West and even in Saudi Arabia. May Allaah protect us and aid the Muslims and may Allaah guide those people who are guilty of what the Shaykh is mentioning to reflect and change their ways.

Reference: The Mannerisms of Differing between Ahlus-Sunnah – revised and introduced by Shaykh `Ubayd al-Jaabiree

I came across a great principle while I was reading a book by al Albaanee dealing with issues where the Ijtihaad of the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah differs. I wished that the rest of my brothers would join me in benefiting from such beneficial statements, consisting of benefits that are greatly needed in these days of ours, where a lot of differing and splitting is occurring without knowledge or wisdom.

Moon and the Stars 
  بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Noble Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaymeen (May Allaah have Mercy on him) on the difference between a Scholar Aalim) and a Caller (Daee)[1] 

 Question: What is the difference between a scholar (Aalim) and a caller (Daee) to Islaam?

Answer: The difference between the scholar (Aalim) and the caller to Islaam (Daee)  is clear. The Daee (caller) is one who strives to convey the message of the Shareeah to Allaah’s servants. He calls them to it, sometimes by means of targheeb (encouragement) and tarheeb (deterring). (more…)

The Statements of the Scholars of the Sunnah Concerning the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen)



 The Statements of the Scholars of the Sunnah Concerning the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen)[1] 

All praise is due to Allaah, and may the peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his Companions and those who follow the correct guidance, as to what follows. The following is a collection of some of the Scholars Rulings (Fataawa) concerning the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen).

 The Fatwaa of the Eminent Salafee Scholar Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have Mercy upon him) 

Question (may Allaah be pleased with him): May Allaah be good to you. The Prophet (may the Peace and Blessings of Allaah be upon him) mentioned the hadeeth about splitting where he said, “This Ummah will split into seventy-three sects, all of them will enter in the Hellfire except one.” They asked, “And which sect is it?” He replied, “Those who are upon what I and my companions are upon today.”[2] So, are Jama’atut-Tableegh – with what that they have with them from polytheism (shirk) and innovations (bid’ah), and Jama’atul Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen (The Group of the Muslim Brotherhood) – and what is with them by way of partisanship and splitting from the foundation of (obedience) to the Muslim rulers… do these two groups enter into the destroyed groups (in the fire)?  

Answer: They fall into the seventy-two sects, and whoever differs with the ‘aqeedah (creed) of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah enters into the seventy-two sects. The purpose of the word (my group)[3] is that group which has responded to Allaah’s request and shows adherence to Him. Seventy-three sects – the safe and secure one is that which followed it and stood firmly upon the religion. Included in the seventy-two sects are the disbelieving ones, and from them are the disobedient ones, and from them are the innovating partisans.  

Question: Meaning these two sects are from within those seventy-two?   

Answer: Yes they are from the seventy-two.[4]
