Bismillahi wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ’Alaa Rasoolillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

Therefore Oh youth! be ardent, leave this fitan, leave these tribulations, be salafies who are true, follow the path of the salaf, they didn’t have the likes of these differences and this instability (in affairs of manhaj) up until relatively recently these things were not known with our scholars

So (as was mentioned (the statement of Allah)) ”I call to Allah..” it is a must that we reflect upon it and its meaning and that we have a true pause for reflection upon it. Call to Allah, not to Ali Al Halabi, not to Al Ma’ribee, not to Abdul Maalik Ramadhaani, not to Abdul Azeez Ar Rayyis, not to such and such from those who have opposed the truth and who the scholars have warned against like Ibraaheem Ar Ruhailee, no! to Allah!

These individuals have opposed the truth, that’s it! they are left, stay with the truth, follow the path of the truth, save yourself! Wallahi these individuals will not benefit you Wallah! Those who have opposed the truth, Wallahi they will not benefit you. Ruhaili, Ar Rayyis, this one, that one, if they are upon the haq then be with them, but if they are upon falsehood and the Ulamaa clarify their affair then leave them

Call to Allah! don’t call to individuals, do you wish to glorify Allah and call to Allah or call to individuals.

Upon until recently the Ulamaa if they spoke against an individual his affair would be finished, they would leave him! having blind allegiance to the Shaikh? No! by Allah! due to following the truth.

Did we know in the era of ibn Baaz and Uthaimeen and Al Albaani, these Imaams and mountains of knowledge who passed away in recent years, did we see them authoring books against those who refute and respond to the people of falsehood?

Why because their students and their followers, the likes of Shaikh Rabee’ Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Haadi, Shaikh Abdullah Al Bukhaari they know the haq and cling to it.

Such and such is a great respected person loved by us,  if he opposes the truth, As Salaamu alaikum and they continue walking, why? because he opposed the truth intentionally and persisted upon that, as for if he returns (to the truth) then alhamdullillah

I’ll strike for you a quick example, Shaikh Uthaimeen made a mistake in an issue of aqeedah thinking that was the aqeedah of the salaf, Ash Shaikh Hamood At Tuwaijari wrote a book in refutation of him, in refutation of who? Ibn Uthaimeen! The mountain! The ocean (of knowledge) what did sheikh ibn baaz do? (did he say) ‘Ahlus sunnah should be gentle with Ahlus Sunnah (rifqan Ahlus Sunnah Bi Ahlis Sunnah) he is our brother don’t speak about him?? don’t refute him publically for the good of the da’wah don’t speak?? what did he do? he wrote an introduction to the book agreeing with sheikh Hamood!

What did sheikh Uthaimeen do? did he run around the world complaining? did he run around to the scholars and the students of knowledge saying ‘Sheikh Hamood has refuted me! why did he refute me! I’m a man of sunnah I am such and such? what did he do? He too wrote an introduction to the book and returned to the truth in the issue!

why because they were a people who intended Allah

“I call to Allah upon clear sightedness..” upon knowledge and light.

This then, is something we are lacking, two types of people are lacking this. As for our scholars then they are our scholars and their knowledge and virtue is well known and no one rejects that other than an ignorant one or a person of desires.

But this clearsightedness is lacking in two groups of people

1. Those who put themselves forward for da’wah from the students of knowledge like ourselves. Some of them have entered into giving da’wah but they are not fit to give da’wah or they need to study certain issues (further) but they have not studied, then (all of a sudden) khalaas he is a ‘Shaikh’ I’m a shaikh now I don’t need to study

Look (for example) at the fool, who when it was said to him why don’t you attend the lessons of (Shaikh) Fauzaan so he responded ‘I already possess that which (Shaikh) Fauzaan has!’ Oh foolish one! to this level knowledge and it’s people have become irrelevant to you’

The scholars of Hadeeth, and they were the Imaams of their time, if a scholar (of the Sunnah) came to them from somewhere, they would sit with him and take from him, they would listen to him and take knowledge from him. And from their mannerisms is that if the Aalim of that land was resident they would not speak, the Aalim would be the one who spoke, and he would be the one people return to.

Thus we see from them deviation because they do not call to Allah upon clear-sightedness and upon knowledge.

Salafiyah at present is receiving blows, if it is correct for me to say that, by way of certain people, meaning there are some bad positions that are taken by a certain set of people. (From them) an aalim who posseses knowledge but is not clear on the meanings of ittibaa (following the messenger) and Sunnah and Salafiyah (i.e. Issues of methodology and manhaj). Thus he fails the Salafis and disappoints them and doesn’t even realise it!. So the people sit with him but he is unaware (of theses affairs of methodology), he is an Aalim and person of Sunnah, but he is unaware of certain mistakes and oppositions to the salafi methodology, so he enters into the topic, he enters into the issue not understanding and he ends up being more wrong than he is right!

2.And students of knowledge who have embarked upon giving da’wah but they havent studied so they forsake the haq and give aid to falsehood and may even call to falsehood (due to their ignorance).

So (the second group are) the students who give da’wah but they call without clear-sightedness, it is a must one has clearsightedness.

For this reason As Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Abdil Wahaab mentioned there are four issues one must know, issues that it is compulsory to learn, the first of them being Ilm (knowledge), knowledge first! Know that there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah (as Imaam Al Bukhaari said) he began with knowledge before action and statement.

The scholars mention whoever calls to Allah, how will he call if he is ignorant of da’wah, how will he call and what will he call to?…

End of part four
