  • A Series of Refutations in Annihilating the Accusations of Those that Claim ash-Shaykh Yahya has Opposed the Salaf in the Usool! Series Part 5: Does ash-Shaykh Yahya belittle the Prophet, may the prayers and peace be upon him?

    All praise is due to Allah; the Lord of all that exists, and may the peace and blessings be upon the most

    noblest of prophets and messengers, Mohammad, and upon all of his family and his companions, and those

    that followed them and whoever follows them in goodness until the day of judgement.

    To proceed: I have examined an article belonging to someone who goes by the name of Sa'eed Az-

    Za'aabee, under the title of: 'An Objection to the Statement of ash-Shaykh Al-Hajooree Which is in

    Contradiction with the Status of the Messenger, and the Obligation of Having Good Manners with him'. He

    gave a long introduction to it that had within it praises upon the noble messenger, and a clarification of his

    rank and the obligation of following him, honouring him and respecting him.

    He cited noble verses from the Quran in respect to this, just as he cited the explanation of the scholars

    pertaining to these noble verses, and a clarification to what comprised within them (i.e. Ayaat) from

    reverence, respect and nobility of our prophet Mohammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon

    him. And in this we believe and we profess to Allah from the depths of our inner selves, no Muslim

    disputes this and to Allah belongs all praise. However, from that which overwhelms and draws ones

    attention is his statement in this introduction:

    May He (i.e. Allah) crush he who opposes him , destroy he who contradicts him, May He protect him from those who mock him, cut off he who hates him, curse he who insults him in this life and in the hereafter, and

    may his shame wait in lie (for him) in ambush

    So we say (in reply to this): 'Aameen' and we support this person (i.e. the one who makes this supplication)

    concerning that, however the problem is that he And Allah knows best- intends that I, Al-Hajooree, am one who opposes the messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and one that

    contradicts him and jests at him, and that I am from those who possess hatred and that I am from those who

    show hatred to the messenger of Allah. And that I am from those who insult the messenger of Allah, may

    the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and that I am deserving of the curse in this life and in the

    hereafter, and that perhaps the people of Dar-Al Hadeeth in Dammaj fall into that which necessitates

    disbelief in his view, and Allah knows best who is intended in the scope of this speech of his.

    Oh woe to Al-Islam and the Muslims from these mentalities and these desires, for indeed to Allah we

    belong, and to Him we shall return.

    If he does not intend me by these wordings, then let him clarify to me and to the people what was

    applicable to me from it. And before I enter into debating the speech of this man, I would like to quote

    (some) speech from the scholars concerning the topic: 'Are the prophets infallible from falling into the

    minor sins?', then I will debate the most important (affairs) of what he came with in his article step by step.

    There comes in Majmoo' Al-Fataawa1 of Shaykh Al-Islam; Ahmad Bin Abdul-Haleem Bin Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy upon him, of which its wording is:

    The Shaykh, may Allah have mercy upon him, was asked about a man who said that the prophets, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them, are infallible from the major sins, excluding the minor ones, so

    then a man declared him to be a disbeliever due to this. So then is the one who said this right or wrong?

    And has any from amongst them (i.e. the scholars) spoken with the complete infallibility of the prophets?

    And what is the correct ruling in regards to this?

    1 4/319-321.

  • A Series of Refutations in Annihilating the Accusations of Those that Claim ash-Shaykh Yahya has Opposed the Salaf in the Usool! Series Part 5: Does ash-Shaykh Yahya belittle the Prophet, may the prayers and peace be upon him?

    The answer: All praise is due to Allah, The Lord of all that exists, he is not a disbeliever with the agreement

    of the people of the religion and this is not from the issues of insulting (the prophet, may the prayers and

    peace be upon him) that are considered disputable with the requirement to repent for the one who said it.

    There is no dispute (in this), just as Al-Qaadee 'Iyaadh and the likes of him stated in relation to their (i.e.

    some people's) exaggeration in regards to infallibility, and in regards to the punishment of the one who

    insulted (the prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

    And in relation to this, they (i.e. the scholars) are in agreement that saying (statements) that are similar to

    this, are not from the issues (that are considered) insulting (the prophet, may the peace and blessings of

    Allah be upon him) and (neither is it from the issues that obligate any sort of) punishment, let alone the one

    that says this being (considered) a disbeliever or a sinner. For indeed the statement that the prophets are

    infallible from falling into the major sins excluding the minor ones, is the statement of most of the scholars

    of Al-Islam and all of the groups. Even to the extent that it is the statement of most of Ahlul-kalaam

    (people of theology) as is mentioned by Abul-Hassan Al-Aamadee; that this is the statement of most of the

    Asharee's, and it is also the statement of most of the people of Tafseer, hadeeth and Fiqh.

    Rather, it has not been quoted from the Salaf and the leaders (of Al-Islaam) and the companions, and the

    Taabi'een and those that followed them, except that which agrees with this statement, and nothing has been

    quoted from them that which co-insides with the statement.....1 Rather, this statement was only quoted from

    the Raafidhah in the previous times, then from some of the Mu'tazilah, and then a group from those who

    came after agreed with them. And generally what is quoted from the majority of the scholars is that: they

    are not infallible from falling into some of the minor sins, and that they do not remain upon this, and they

    do not say that it does not happen at all.

    The first from the groups of this Ummah that the statement of complete infallibility was quoted from, and

    the greatest of them in regards to this statement, were the Raafidhah2. For they advocate infallibility, even

    to the extent of what happens by way of forgetfulness, inattentiveness and interpretation (they negate all of

    it), and they pass this (i.e. characteristic of infallibility) onto those who they believe (possesses) 'Al-

    Imaamah' (leadership) and they say that 'Alee and the 12 Imaams have this infallibility.

    Then the Isma'eeleyyah, those that were the kings of Cairo, and they used to claim that they were the

    successors of the worshippers of 'Alee and Faatimah, (however) they were (considered to be) from the

    offspring of 'Ubayd-Allah Al-Qaddaah by the people of knowledge, they and their followers used to

    advocate the likes of this infallibility to their leaders and to those similar to them, whilst they were as has

    been mentioned concerning them by Abu Haamid Al-Ghazaalee in his book, which he authored as a

    refutation upon them, he said: The apparent methodology is that of rejection (i.e. that of the Raafidhah) and that which is hidden is pure disbelief.

    Al-Qaadhee Abu Ya'laa authored (a book) and commented upon their methodologies, as did other than him

    from the scholars of the Muslims. These people and their likes are extreme advocates of infallibility, and

    they declare the one who rebukes it to be a disbeliever, and these extremists are disbelievers (themselves)

    with an agreement of the Muslims.

    1 Here, some of the speech that is mentioned is missing from the volume that was quoted (from Al-Majmoo').

    2 Indeed Az-Za'aabee and whoever is supporting him, have fallen into opposition to the scholars of the Ummah that are

    considered, and in agreement with the Raafidhah and those that confirm with their way. Thus does ignorance and desire do to

    their possessor, and I intend by 'whoever is supporting him', whoever backed this article in the website 'anaSalafy.com'. With

    deep regret, we hope that the one responsible for this website comes to know the Fitnah of these people and their objectives

    from behind their supporting of falsehood and their fanatacism towards whoever agrees with their desires.
