[7] 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 deluded researchers at Wikipedia stated, “The movement has, in essence, been a reaction against the Muslim Brotherhood, rival Sahwa movement as well as the Qutbi movement; Sayyid Qutb, that movement’s figurehead, is considered to be an apostate by Madkhali and his movement”.[End of quote]

They say that this group known as the Mad’khalis (so-called Mad’khalis) was born out of opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood, the rival Sahwa movement, and the Qutbi movement! Indeed, this claim demonstrates the repugnant ignorance of these pseudo-researchers once again, due to the fact that the Kharijite methodology of the “Muslim Brotherhood Sect” and the “Qutbis” emerged during the era of the Sahaabah, and this destructive methodology has always been refuted in both the Books of Aqeedah and the scholars’ discussions regarding the deviant sects in the Ummah. Hafs Bin Humaid [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: I said to Abdullaah Ibnul Mubaarak [may Allah have mercy upon him], “How many sects have this Ummah spilt into?” He said, “The foundation of the sects are four: the Shia, the Harooriyyah (i.e. khawaarij), the Qadariyyah, and the Murji’ah. The Shia (further) split into twenty-two sects, the Hurooriyyah (further) split into twenty-one sects, the Qadariyyah (further) split into sixteen sects and the Murji’ah (further) split into thirteen sects. [(2)]

The above-mentioned deviant sects have been discussed by Ahlus Sunnah, both past and current, and each one is distinct from the others. Must-read articles:

Indeed, contemporary deviant groups and sects have already followed in the footsteps of the early deviant sects, and there is no doubt that Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen (The Muslim Brotherhood Sect) and the Qutbies have had their fair share of this falsehood and deviation. Articles you should read:

After being acquainted with the knowledge presented above, the seeker of truth will realise that names cannot change reality. Whether a group is called “The Muslim Brotherhood,” “Qutbi,” or “Islamic State (ISIS),” the fact remains that these groups subscribe to and propagate the khawaarij methodology, and scholars have not ceased refuting any group that subscribes to the methodology of any of the deviated sects. So, based on the imaginations of the deluded researchers at Vikipedia and elsewhere, it would be desirable or obligatory to concoct a specific group for every Salafi Scholar who has refuted the ideas of the Qutbies and the Muslim Brotherhood, namely Baazism for Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Fawzaanism for Al-Allamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan, Jaamism for Al-Allamah Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaami, Uthaymism for Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen, Jaabirism for Al-Allamah Ubaid Bin Abdillah Al-Jaabi, Al-Albaanism for Imaam Al-Albaanee, Abbaadism for Al-Allamah Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbaad, Luhaydanism for Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Luhaydaan, Salihism for Al-Allaamah Salih Aala Ash-Shaikh, Bukhaarism for Shaikh Abdullah Al-Bukhaari, Dhifirism for both Shaikh Khalid Adh-Dhafiri and Shaikh Abdullah Adh-Dhafiri etc. Imagine the response these cretins would receive if they approached Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan or Al-Allaamah Saalih Aala Shaikh and claimed that both of them deserved to be given a group name or that they both deserved to be called Mad’khalists for their writings against the Takfeeris among whom the Qutbis and Muslim Brotherhood Sects are the most active?!

The deluded researchers at Vikipedia say that Mad’khalism (i.e. so-called Mad’khalism) is a reaction against the rival Sahwa movement. Indeed, what must be made known as we stated earlier is that the scholars of Islam – throughout Islamic History – rebut any individual or group that opposes the sound Prophetic path whether in relation to beliefs, acts of worship, politics, enjoining good and forbidding evil, etc. When the Khawaarij first appeared and manifested their misguided zeal for upholding the pure Shariah, the Sahaabah clarified their misguidance. Ubaydullah Ibn Abee Raafi [may Allah have mercy upon him] reported that the Haruriyya (Khawarij) came out against Ali Ibn Abee Taalib [may Allah be pleased with him] and said, “There is no judgement except Allah”. Ali said, “A statement of truth by which is intended falsehood. Verily, Allah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allah be upon him] described some people and I recognized their description in these people. They speak the truth with their statements but it does not go beyond this”, then (the narrator) pointed to his throat. [Sahih Muslim 1066]

Ibn Abbas [may Allah be pleased with him and his father] debated with the Khawaawij and said to them, “As for your statement that Ali has appointed men to judge in an affair which only Allah can judge”, I recite to you a judgment given to men in the matter of the price of a rabbit and other hunted animals: “O you who believe! Kill not game while you are in a state of Ihram for Hajj or ‘Umrah (pilgrimage), and whosoever of you kills it intentionally, the penalty is an offering, brought to the Ka’bah, of an eatable animal (i.e. sheep, goat, cow, etc.) equivalent to the one he killed, as adjudged by two just men among you…”. [Surah Al-Maa’idah. Ayah 95] I implore you by Allah, is the judgment of men in hunted animals better or their judgment regarding their lives and reconciliation between them? You know that if Allah had willed, he would have judged himself and not appointed men. Regarding a woman and her husband, Allah Almighty said:

وَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ شِقَاقَ بَيْنِهِمَا فَٱبْعَثُوا۟ حَكَمًا مِّنْ أَهْلِهِۦ وَحَكَمًا مِّنْ أَهْلِهَآ إِن يُرِيدَآ إِصْلَٰحًا يُوَفِّقِ ٱللَّهُ بَيْنَهُمَآ

If you fear dissension between them, send a judge from his family and a judge from her family. If they desire reconciliation, Allah will facilitate it between them. [Surah An-NIsaa. Ayah 35] So, Allah has made the judgment of men an established precedent (based on the final divine revelation – the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah). [As-Sunan Al-Kubraa 15389] [Read here a detailed version of this story: ]

Therefore, in order to distinguish between fact and fiction when discussing the Sahwa-Islamic Awakening, one must be familiar with the sound Prophetic approach because it is well-known to the Salafiyyoon that the groups either deviated towards extremism or negligence while in pursuit of revival, so the upright scholars either warn the Muslims in general or refute the deviants. Al-Allaamah Saalih al-Fawzaan [may Allah preserve him] said:

The Islamic Awakening didn’t start in these days or in this era; rather, it began when Allah sent His Prophet with the message of Islam, which the people embraced in large numbers and groups. All the praises and thanks be to Allah, good has not ceased to continue in this Ummah, as the Prophet said, “There will not cease to be a group amongst my Ummah manifest (upon the truth). They will neither be harmed by those who forsake them nor by those who oppose them until the command of Allah come to pass [i.e. the day of judgment] whilst they are upon that”. Although the struggle between truth and falsehood continues, there are still callers to the truth and its helpers–those who follow the correct methodology and rise up to call it. The Ummah has not been all asleep or misguided in (any) era (during) the various eras to the extent that a group arose giving itself a name or the name “Islamic Awakening” because the meaning of this is that the entire Islamic World was misguided before these people (initiated) the awakening. This contradicts the statement of the Prophet “There will not cease to be a group amongst my Ummah manifest upon the truth”, and his statement, “My Ummah will never unite upon misguidance”.

Indeed, when carried out on the basis of the methodology of the righteous callers and that of the pious predecessors- the book of Allah, the Sunnah, and that which the pious predecessors of this Ummah were upon- and far removed from affiliations that are in opposition to the methodology of the pious predecessors, this (revival) is commended and safe from criticism. Its goal should be to become acquainted with the truth in order to act and call for it and to become acquainted with falsehood in order to avoid and warn against it, but its goal cannot be to seek leadership or ascendency in the earth and revolt against the Ja’maa’ah. This is neither the correct Dawah methodology nor that of the pious predecessors; rather, it is the methodology of the Khawaarij and the Mutazilah-those who have deviated from the methodology of the Qur’an, the (authentic) Sunnah’, and the path of the pious predecessors. (They) were a disgrace in Islamic History and a wound in the body of the Ummah. We ask Allah to guide the misguided Muslims to what is correct. [(3)] 

All praise and thanks be to Allah, is this clarification by Al-Allaamah Salih Al-Fawzaan, not the identical one given by all scholars who adhere to the correct methodology of the pious forefathers? Yes, certainly, it is the same methodology taught by Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz, Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen, Imaam Al-Albaanee, and al-Allaamah Saalih al-Luhaydaan [may Allah have mercy on them] and others. So, will the cretins and compulsive liars at Wikipedia give Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan the fictitious name Mad’khali because he opposes the Qutbies’ and Muslim Brotherhood’s flawed methodology in their pursuit of revival?!

Finally, the vicious liars at Wikipedia then stated that Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali declares Sayyid Qutb an apostate:

We challenge Wikipedia’s spiteful, compulsive liars to identify a single unambiguous remark of Al-Allaamah Rabee that demonstrates that he has declared misguided Qutb an apostate (i.e. one who was a Muslim but has been ejected from the fold of Islam). If they do not offer their evidence, we say to them, “May Allah’s curse be upon the liars.”
