In order to understand the opinions of Deobandi Ulamah we need to look at the issue chronologicaly. The first Fatwa which I know on the issue is by Shaykh (Mufti) Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi (RA):
“The followers of Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhab (RA) are known as Wahabees. Their Aqaid are excellent and their Madhab is Hanbali. Although there is harshness in their temperament but him and his followers are good except the ones amongst them who have exceeded the limit (and therefore) became corrupt but their Aqaid are united.
The Fatwa above is almost bangon because at this point the propaganda hasn't reached India and Saudi Government hasn't become what it is today!
Thereafter the opinions of Ulamah are swayed:
The facts remain that he neither killed all these innocent Muslims which he is accused of murdering NOR was he a very balanced individual when it came to Takfeer. His own brother (Qadhi of Huraymila) refuted him.
The truth is until Saudia as a country exists you will never get the truth because people will continue to try to appease them (or at least not antagonise them). The works of Maulana Naumani (RA) and encouragment by Shaykhul-Hadeeth (Maulana) Zakariyya Kandhalwi (RA) are clear attempts at maintaining cordial relations with Saudees (ofcourse it hasn't worked, look at all the Fatwaas against the Deobandees).
If not to appease than maybe to promote harmony and cordial relations otherwise show me works from the same Ulamah criticising Saudi Government and its policies?
Explain to me as to why a blind man can see the errors of Saudi Arabia, its treatment of Asians and migrants, its policies, its brutal enforcement of Shariah punishments on foreigners (sparing the Saudees) its rhetoric against Deoband but none of our Akabir and Mashaykh can see anything?
Even the most ardent Saudi Salafees can’t deny it but you never hear a beep from our Ulamah and Mashaykh, why is it? In return all Deobandees get are Fatwaas of heresy and deviancy from Saudi Scholars.
I have read books and works from our Ulamah criticising the Ottomans (no doubt correctly), does the Saudi Government does nothing wrong?
The question in this thread is about Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahab (RA) and he gave Fatwaas of Takfeer on entire towns (blanket Fatwaas) even the Salafees don’t deny this! Have our Ulamah not come across this? Its stupid to give a Fatwa that every Muslim in CapeTown is a Kaafir! on what basis???
True or False?
Don't know about SA but:
I am not talking about Saudi Nationals donating to Darul-ulooms in UK which is openly admitted but OFFICIAL SAUDI GOVERNMENT FUNDING!
Deobandees have more similarities with "Wahabees" then Barelwees and they most certainly don't have a foul mouth to curse everybody else like the Barelwees do. We should do whats right and not because the Barelwees want us to do XYZ.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
