[4] A Brief Look at Pseudo Researchers in Salafiyyah: [Examination of a Fabricated Quietist Faction Within Salafiyyah Called Mad’khalism]

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Samura Bin Jundub [may Allah be pleased with him] said: The Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] said, “I saw (in a dream), two men came to me.” Then the Prophet narrated the story (saying), “They said, ‘The person, the one whose cheek you saw being torn away (from the mouth to the ear) was a liar and used to tell lies and the people would report those lies on his authority till they spread all over the world. So he will be punished like that till the Day of Resurrection”. [1]

The liars at Wikipedia stated, “Though originating in Saudi Arabia, the movement lost its support base in the country and has mostly been relegated to the Muslim community in Europe, with most Saudi Arabians not taking the edicts of Madkhalists seriously. Political scientist Omar Ashour has described the movement as resembling a cult, and English-language media has referred to the group as such”. [End of quote]


We’ve already proven beyond doubt in part 1 that there are no strains in Salafiyyah, let alone one known as Madkhalism; therefore, there’s no need to address anything related to its so-called origin or emergence as a movement; otherwise, we’ll engage in a fruitless debate in attempting to rebut this delusion of the deluded liars at Wikipedia. Everything said by the liars about this fictitious strain within Salafiyyah is intended to misconstrue the reality of Al-Allaamah Rabee’s approach and efforts in rebutting Ahlul Bidah. Indeed, Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allah protect him] is their target since he, along with other well-known Salafi Scholars – such as Al-Allaamah Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaami, Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillah Al-Jaabiri, Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan, Al-Allaamah Muhammad Bin Abdil Wahhaab Al-Bannah, Al-Allaamah Muqbil Bin Haadi Al-Waad’ee – exposed the corruption and deception of the Takfeeris, Qutubies, and other political activists in Saudi and elsewhere, and Al-Allaamah Rabee, in particular, revealed the reality of Sayyid Qutb, Hasan Al-Bannah, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood sect, Adnaan Aroor, Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq, Ihyaa Turaath, and others. Additionally, other Salafi scholars, such as Imaam Al-Albaanee, as well as Salafi students of knowledge in the East and the West, revealed the truth about the Khawaarij, such as Usaamah Bin Ladin and Ayman Az Zawaahiri, political activists, and people who adhered to the Ikhwaanees’ methodology, such as Salman Al-Awdah, Safar, Nasir Umar, Muhammad Al-Areefee, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, and their ilk.

This is what the liars at Wikipedia and elsewhere are trying to conceal since Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali and his students in the East and the West were amongst the first to expose all contemporary deviant groups and individuals whose orientation is a path that encourages an innovative political discourse or rebellion against Muslim rulers. So, when their misguided tactics and covert attempts to infiltrate Salafiyyah were uncovered, they concocted an imaginary strain within Salafiyyah which they called Madkhalism and falsely attributed it to Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’kali. And to cover up their deviated organisations and figureheads, they also invented many bogus ideas; nevertheless, Al-Allaamah Rabee once more revealed their evil schemes. Read what the Shaikh stated in this link:

Regarding the claim of the liars that “the movement (i.e., so-called Mad’kalism) lost its support base in the country (i.e. Saudi Arabia) and has mostly been relegated to the Muslim community in Europe, with most Saudi Arabians not taking the edicts of Madkhalists seriously,” this is yet another desperate attempt – through this fictitious strain within Salafiyyah – to claim that Al-Allaamah Rabee’s stances are incorrect. Indeed, even if Al-Allaamah Rabee’s clarifications are rejected by all the political activists and the Khawaarij, including the pathetic liars at Wikipedia, this does not mean that the Shaikh is incorrect; rather, in Islam, what is given consideration is the clarification that is in agreement with the Qur’an and the authentic Sunnah as understood and implemented by the pious predecessors. Therefore, the sincere seeker of truth follows the proofs and does not take into account the large numbers in opposition, regardless of whether the clarifier’s clarifications are accepted or rejected in any location on Earth. Imaam Abu Shaamah [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “When the command to adhere to the Jamaa’ah (the main body) is (mentioned), then the intent behind it is to adhere to the truth, even if those who follow it are few and those who oppose it are numerous. That is because the truth is that which the first Jamaa’ah was upon- the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] and his companions [may Allaah be pleased with them]- and one does not give consideration to the numerous people of falsehood”. [2]

Imam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “Let every Muslim be careful of being deceived by the great numbers [of people upon such and such idea, view, belief, way of life, etc], whilst saying, ‘Indeed, the people have become such and such, and have become accustomed to such and such, so I am with them’. This is a great calamity, for indeed many people of the past were destroyed due to this [i.e. blindly following the majority]. Therefore, O sensible one! It is obligated on you to examine yourself; take account of yourself and adhere to the truth, even if the people abandon it. Beware of what Allaah has forbidden, even if the people do it, for indeed the truth is more worthy of being followed, just as Allaah [The Most High] said: [وَإِنْ تُطِعْ أَكْثَرَ مَنْ فِي الْأَرْضِ يُضِلُّوكَ عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّه ِ -And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah’s Path. [Surah Al An-aam Ayah 116]

And Allaah [The Most High] said: [ وَمَآ أَڪۡثَرُ ٱلنَّاسِ وَلَوۡ حَرَصۡتَ بِمُؤۡمِنِينَ-And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly] [Surah Yusuf Ayah 103]. [3]

Al-Allaamah Muqbil Bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “If numbers are the scale by way of which you judge, then the majority are mostly blameworthy; and if persuasive speech and eloquence is the scale by way of which you judge, then indeed Allah described the Munaafiqoon that they have tongues that utter beautiful speech. Allah said: [وَإِن يَقُولُواْ تَسۡمَعۡ لِقَوۡلِهِمۡ – And when they speak, you listen to their words]. [Surah Al-Munaafiqoon. Aayah 4]

Therefore, what is given consideration is that one knows the people of truth by their characteristics – that they call to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him, his family, and companions], and they neither desire reward from the people nor seeking to be thanked”. [4]

Indeed, the measure by which truth is distinguished from falsehood is not whether or not one takes Shaikh Rabee’s refutations seriously; rather, one examines the evidence offered by this sincere, devout, and valiant Scholar [may Allah protect him]. Likewise, may Allah bless our brave seniors at Salafipublications for delivering various articles over many years to elucidate the truth.

Finally, regarding the satanic claim of the Vikipedia Shayaateen that Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali and those who support his knowledge-based refutations are a cult and that this is also the view of Dr. Umar Ashqar and some in the English language media, this is undoubtedly another desperate attempt to distort the truth, just as they have done with a fictitious strain within Salafiyyah known as Mad’khalism although there are neither strains nor cults within Salafiyyah; rather, those who have deviated from sound Salafi principles and still seek to ascribe to it to justify their deviations are well known to either hasten towards extremism or negligence, and thus some Salafi scholars, including Al-Allamah Rabee, Al-Allamah Ubaid, and their students, clarified the reality regarding these deceivers. So, the deceivers accused Al-Allaamah Rabee of cultism after the robust and knowledge-based refutations against them became widely accessible to the Salafiyyoon. Indeed, none of the Shayaateen liars on Wikipedia or elsewhere can produce a single piece of knowledge-based evidence to show that Al-Allaamah Rabee and those who assisted him in his Jihaad against Ahlul Bidah and the political activists are cultists. This is why the Shaikh addressed them as follows:

“We are challenging Ahlul Bidah Wal Ahwaa [the adherents to bidah and followers of vain desires] in their creed and politics. We say, between us and you are the (path, understanding of the) pious predecessors and books (of the pious predecessors). Ahmad [i.e. Imaam Ahmad] used to say to the proponents of bidah, ‘Between us and you are the funerals (i.e. whose funeral will be attended by Ahlus Sunnah in great numbers)’. We say (i.e. at present), ‘Between us and you are the books (of the pious predecessors)- the books are present! Allah said to His Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]: [قل فَأْتُوا بِالتَّوْرَاةِ فَاتْلُوهَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَادِقِينَ – All food was lawful to the Children of Israel, except what Israel made unlawful for himself before the Taurat (Torah) was revealed. Say (O Muhammad ): “Bring here the Taurat (Torah) and recite it, if you are truthful].  So, they bring the Torah and you prove them to be upon falsehood. We bring the books of the pious predecessors – the Qur’an, the Sunnah, the books of Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasaa’ee, and what was authored by Ahmad and others; we bring them (to prove) those who are on the path of these (pious predecessors) and those who turn away and oppose them. Just as Allaah challenged the Jews to bring the Torah, so the Torah was brought and they were exposed. We challenge these people to bring the books of the pious predecessors, so that the Mubtadi is exposed, and to clarify who the deviants are- whether us or them? Are they able to challenge? Can they open their mouths like this? We fill our mouths with courage – challenge everyone who says that we are upon other than the methodology of the pious predecessors. We, by Allaah, call to the methodology of the pious predecessors- to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him]. We use the book of Allah and the Sunnah as proof for our beliefs, our acts of worship, our dealings with rulers and their subjects, and in dealing with groups and sects. As for the others, they are upon tricks, deception, etc By Allaah, you will not find with them anything but tricks and manipulating the emotions of youth”.

As for Dr. Umar Al Ashqar, may Allah have mercy on him, if this is actually his statement as transmitted by the Shayaateen liars at Wikipedia, then indeed, it is a disgusting lie and slander. However, regardless of whether this is his statement or not, his affair was not hidden from the Salafiyyoon. Shaikh Abdul Ilaah Lahmami Al-Maghribi [may Allah preserve him] stated, “I heard from our Sheikh Muhammad Abdulwahhab Marzooq al Banna [may Allah have mercy upon him] that he (i.e. Umar Ashqar) was one of his students in the Jamiah al Islamiyyah in Madinah and that later he followed the Manhaj of the Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen. And that even Abdulrahman Abdulkhaliq who also later followed the manhaj of the Ikhwaan complained to Sheikh al Banna about Umar al Ashqar following the Ikhwaan”. [5]
