Shaykh Muhammad bin Rabee’ – a Salafi scholar from the city of Madeenah, former professor at the Islamic University of Madeenah –  made a brief comment regarding the Woolwich killing – he stated (see this tweet):

Islaam is free of this barbaric act. No [sound] intellect accepts this type of behaviour. This will do nothing but incite people who live in these lands to have hostility towards the Muslims. This man is either someone who adheres to the way of the Khawaarij (an extreme sect of renegades) or someone who is intoxicated by his emotions and is totally ignorant of the rulings of Islam. Islam is a religion of justice and fairness. This is nothing but a criminal act.

The statement of the Shaykh, “intoxicated by his emotions” is a nice characterization of these types of people in general because they are intoxicated by the evil misguided opinions and sentiments of ignorant pseudo-scholars such as Omar Bakri, Abu Qatada, Abu Hamzah and their likes. Indeed the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said about the Kharijites that they are “youthful of age, foolish of mind” and from the greatest of their traits is rank ignorance of Islam and its rulings. These people (and in particular their leaders who misguide them) are a scourge upon the Muslim nation and the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) informed that they will continuously appear in the Muslim nation until the Antichrist appears in the midst (see here). For this reason it is obligatory upon the Muslims to wage war against them, their leaders and figureheads, refute and demolish their beliefs, their evil ideas, their vile methodologies and to exonerate Islam from their falsehood, since cutting these people off is a desired affair in the Shari’ah of Islam (see this article).

The Late Scholar Ihsan Ilahee Thaheer

As for what follows: This is the speech of the Guiding Scholar, Shaikh Rabee – Allah preserve him – regarding the Shaikh, the Mujaahid, Ihsaan Ilahee Thaheer – (we ask that) Allah bestow His Mercy upon him.

This speech is taken from the introduction of a thesis speaking about the efforts of Shaikh Ihsaan – (we ask that) Allah bestow much mercy upon him and gather us together with him in Paradise.

Shaikh Rabee – (we ask that) Allah preserve him – said:

The brother Ali bin Musa az-Zahraanee who is preparing a thesis for his Doctorate (PhD) on the topic of: Shaikh Ihsaan Ilahee Thaheer and His Efforts in  Affirming the Salafi Creed and Refuting the Opposing Sects, sought from me to mention something of what I know about Shaikh Ihsaan Ilahee, so I fulfilled his request by mentioning somethng of what I know about him.  That is that I knew Shaikh Ihsaan at the Islamic University of Madinah while he was seeking knowledge there.  He was – rahimahullah – from the most superior students of the University in intelligence, striving, and skill. He would debate some of the Scholars with knowledge and skill, so he would take knowledge as well as give it.

I knew him to be a Mujaahid in the area of the Aqeedah (creed) – calling to it, defending it and those carriers of it from the Companions and those who followed them with perfection (in beliefs, actions, and statements) from the Scholars of Hadeeth and the Imaams of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah.  He defended the Quran and the Sunnah and refuted the various astray sects from the Raafidah, the Qaadi’aanis, the Bahaa’is, and theBarelwis.

 

He enriched the Salafi library with treasure (his writings) possessing tremendous value, which show his knowledge, the extent of his striving, his ability to refute falsehoods, his help of the Prophetic Sunnah with potent arguments and clear proofs which suppressed the enemies of the truth and the Sunnah.

So (we ask that) Allah bestow vast mercy upon him and that Allah rewards him with the best reward for the efforts he put forth for Islam and the Muslims from the blessed treasure of knowledge, indeed, my Lord is indeed the Hearer (and Answerer) of the dua (invocation).

And (we ask that) Allah raise the rank of our Prophet Muhammad and grant him peace as well as his followers, family, and Companions.
