Shias and the Salafi (Ghair Muqallid) are like sugar and honey

27th October 2010
Which ruling of the Ahle Hadith/Salafi/Wahabi/Najdi/Ghair Muqallid or what ever they call themselves now, and Shias is the same? Remember that the Salafi DO go through a process of Evolution, but their fundamental beliefs will remain.

Lets take a look. References have been given to these claims.

1)Nawaab Noorul Hasan Khan who is a Ghair muqallid says that the saying of a
Sahabi (ra) is not a valid proof, (Urful Jaadi pg.207 vol.1) and this is precisely what the Shias believe.
2) Waheeduz Zamaan a Ghair muqallid scholar says it is okay to say ‘yaa Ali or yaa Muhammed’, (Hadiyyatul Mahdi pg.24) and this is also a Shiite belief.
3) He also says that there is no consensus on giving preference to Shaikhain (Abu
Bakr (ra) and Umar (ra) over all other Sahaba (R.A)), (Hadiyyatul Mahdi pg.94) this is also a Shiite belief.
4) To mention the names of the Khulafaa-e-raashiDeen in the (Friday) sermon is an innovation, (Hadiyyatul Mahdi pg.90) this is also a Shiite belief.
5) The modern Ulama can be superior to the Sahaba (R.A), (Hadiyyatul Mahdi
pg.118) this is also a Shiite belief.
6) According to them, one may commit sodomy with ones wife, (Hadiyyatul Mahdi
pg.118) this also a Shiite belief. (Al-isthibsawr pg.243 vol.2 with reference, Irshaadushia)
7) According to Salafis, three divorces given in one sitting is equivalent to one divorce only, this is neither the belief of Imam Bukhari (R.A) nor the four Imams, but it is a Shiite belief.
8) Salafis reject consensus, and so do the Shias.
9) Ahle Hadith also accept temporary marriages, (Hadiyyatul Mahdi pg.118) this also is a Shiite belief.
10) The Ghair muqallid scholar Waheeduz Zamaan says, ‘We are the
followers of Ali (ra) (Hadiyyatul Mahdi pg.100)

The above has all the references needed. The Shia beliefs are clear to all.

The Blindest Following is the Taqlid of Salafis"!!!

People who follow their desires and opinions in conflict with the Shariah are described in the Holy Quran as the followers of Hawaa (lowly or Nafsani prompting). Such people, while attempting to advertise themselves as intellectuals of independent reasoning, are actually the blindest of followers. They follow their desires, abandoning a superior form of following (Taqlid of the Salaf-as-Saaliheen) for the sake of the Taqlid of their nafs. They suffer from the malady of oblique vision, rendering them worse than the blind.

Those who criticize the illustrious Imams of the Four Madhahib of the Sunnah, and renounce the Islamic concept of Taqlid, have placed around their necks the taqlid of their nafs. They labor in self-deception without even understanding their deviation. They pretend to create the impression that they are men of profound knowledge, hence they themselves have no need for following the Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen, such as Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam Malik ibn Anas, etc. They dupe ignorant people into believing that they possess the capability of interpreting Holy Quran and Hadith and to deduct the problems based on Shariah by their self-study. But their following (taqlid) is of the worst kind. They have rejected to follow those authorities that acquired their knowledge from the Sahabah Ikram. Then they feel proud to announce their taqlid of Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 782 AH) or Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, both of whom appeared centuries after the illustrious Aimmah-e-Mujtahideen. While they claim to be mujtahideen capable of interpreting and understanding the Holy Quran and Hadith, they make taqlid of Ibn Taymiyyah, who is the limit of their knowledge. They have no further source of knowledge. Whatever interpretation Ibn Taymiyyah presents, it is blindly and stupidly accepted by the Ghairi muqallideen who dub themselves Salafis. But they have no relationship with the noble Salaf-as-Saaliheen. Ibn Taymiyyah was not among the Salaf-as-Saaliheen, therefore this title is a great misnomer for those who have adopted blind following of their nafs.

The beginning and ending of the knowledge Salafis ascribe to themselves is Ibn Taymiyyah who appeared on the Islamic Horizon seven centuries after Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) and five centuries after Imam Bukhari (Rahmatullahi alaih). Many, if not all, Salafis glean their interpretation of Hadith from the writings of Ibn Taymiyyah and send the message across that their views are the product of their study of Holy Quran and Hadith.

While they denounce the superior Taqlid of the Salaf-e-Saliheen, they readily embrace the taqlid of Ibn Taymiyyah. Worse than this, they have appointed for themselves as Imam Nasiruddeen al-Albani, who holds no rank in the knowledge of the Shariah. Al-Albani was a man of this present century who died just some months back (1999 AD). So, while they brazenly reject Taqlid, they have adopted the Taqlid of juniors and nonentities. While they denounce the Taqlid of the students of the Sahabah and the Students of the Salaf-e-Saliheen (Tabieen & Tabaat-Tabieen), they embrace the taqlid of those who have absolutely no comparison to the rank and status of the Salaf-e-Saaliheen, radiyallahu anhum ajmaeen.

All Muslims know that Rasulullah (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wa-Sallam) described three ages as the Khairul Quroon (Noblest Ages). These are the eras attached to the era of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam). These were the ages of the A'immati Mujtahideen, Fuqaha, Muhadditheen, Mufassireen, and all the great Souls of al-Islam. These are the ages of the Sahabah, Tabieen and Tabaat-Tabieen. The illustrious authorities of these ages are termed the Salaf-us-Saliheen.

The degree of spiritual blindness of the so-called Salafis can now be gauged. What Islamic rationale requires a man to reject and denounce the following of the Taqlid of the Salaf-us-Saliheen and substitute it with the miserable taqlid of incompetent nonentities? How can Muslims of intelligence reject the Taqlid of the Awliya and the Aimmah of the epoch of Khairul Quroon and adopt the taqlid of men who do not possess the quality and character of a Wali of Allah Taala.

Although they claim to be following the Holy Quran and Sunnah, they blindly follow Ibn Taymiyyah writings and opinions as interpreted by al-Albani. Yes they are quick to lay claim to be obtaining their rules directly from the Hadith; they lack the courage to state that they are following the Sunnah in the way Ibn Taymiyyah has understood it. In fact, few of them have access to the [real] works of Ibn Taymiyyah. They simply blindly follow Al-Albani and others whom they have appointed as their Imams, yet they are vociferous in their denunciation of the Islamic Taqlid of the Aimmat-i-Mujtahideen of the era of the true Salaf.

The Salafis are quick to cite Imam Bukhari (Rahmatullahi alaih) and the other competent Muhadditheen as evidence for their opinions which they gleaned from the writings of Ibn Taymiyyah. While they cite Imam Bukhari (Rahmatullahi alaih), they follow the interpretation of the Hadith offered by Ibn Taymiyyah and expounded by the modernist Al-Albani.

Never be deceived by those who denounce Taqlid of the Fuqaha, and Awliya of Allah Taala. They are not in reality rejecting the actual concept of Taqlid. They are in fact denouncing the ILLUSTRIOUS PREDECESSORS, the SALAF-E-SALIHEEN. They possess some deep dislike for these Predecessors, hence their criticism. As far as following is concerned, these Salafis also follow, yet they follow blindly. They offer blind taqlid to Ibn Taymiyyah, Al-Albani, and Ben Baz. And they follow the Madhhab-e-Taymiyyah, Baaziyyah, Albaaniyyah and Wahhaabiyyah.

Their crude criticism of the Aimmah Mujtahideen is in fulfillment of the prediction made by Sayyidina Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam) who said that among the signs of the Qiyamah is that people of the age will revile the Pious Predecessors (Salaf-as-Saaliheen) of former times. This is what precisely what these deviants are doing. Intelligent people will not be surprised by the miserable conduct of those who denounce the Imams of the Four Madhahib of the Ahlus Sunnah and the Awliya of Allah.

It should be well understood that in every sphere of life, be it mundane or spiritual, taqlid is indispensable, as the Salafis themselves are displaying by their Tariqah of blindly following their Imams. The appropriate designations for the modernist denouncers of Taqlid are Albanis or Baazis, but not Salafis. There is no relationship between them and the Salaf-us-Saliheen.

When in the presence of the Ulama [and educated] of Ahlus Sunnah, the Salafis pretend to honor and respect the Aimmah of the four Madhahib. However, when they preach to unwary and ignorant laymen, they pour out their hidden venom for the Saaliheen Imams in general and for Imam al-Azam Abu Hanifah (Rahmatullahi Taala alaih) in particular. In this despicable two-facedness, they are emulating the Shiah who conceal their true ideologies behind a facade of falsehood. The Salafis of our time are guilty of having incorporated the Shiah concept of Taqiyah into their ideology. May Allah Taala save the Ummah from the evil of the nafs and the snares of Shaitan.

Mujaahid al-Hanafi you are a liar, you are a liar, YOU ARE A LIAR.

Bring you evidence that we blind follow Shaykh ul Islaam blindly?

Just because someone is Ghair Muqalid does not mean he is Salafi. If you want I will bring you evidence that we do not promote "Ya Ali or Ya Muhammad". Fear Allah, this is a lie upon Manhaj-us-Salafiyyah.

I seek refuge in Allah from your fabricated lies, we never revile the companions, this is an evil statement.

Oh Abu Mohammed and Oh Mujaahid al-Hanafi; I was once a Soofi Deobandi and it is because of these types of lies and falsehood I left Deobandiyyah.

Jazakallah for your clarification.

This blog is very old and I don't hold the same views verbatim. May Allah accept your passion for the Deen and guide us and unite us all on the straight path, the path of the Salafus Saleheen, Aameen.

By the way, I'm not a Sufi or a Sufi follower, neither am I 100% Deobandi, however, I do follow the Fiqh as taught by the hanafi school and aqeedah as taught by the Salaf. I don't blind follow in aqeedah.

I get the feeling of hate from your blogs and posts. Remove it if you don't hold the same views. Then remove the article that is full of lies.

Name me a current scholar from the kibaar that holds the same views as this ghair muqalid. This is a slander upon the ulema of Islaam my brother. This the cause of fitnah.
Blogger's Reply:
I appreciate your thoughts even though they may not be in agreement with mine or others.

The articles are by Ulama of south Africa and the Indian subcontinent. The findings are from various books and have clearly been labeled. The articles are not lies, they are referenced for your checking. We know that these beliefs are not the beliefs of thousands of salafis around the world.

Although these thoughts may not be common amongst other sincere salafis, they are still taught within those schools from where they originally come from.

Not all Salafi are the same and not all hanafi are the same.

Have you actually verified what you actually post up?

First of all I cannot find a copy of Urful Jaadi or find information about Nawaab Noorul Hasan Khan.But iI'm open to being corrected here. If you have your research and information about this so called ghair muqalid, even if he rally exist.

Second; Hadiyyatul Mahdihas nothing to do with Salafiyyah. It is in total opposition from quotes of this book I have come across. Although this book is not available anywhere.

What is the names of the ulemawho wrote this false article.

Clearly from research these so called ghair muqallids are being branded salafi by them. You will be answerable on the Day of Judgement for your slander.
