[11] 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 pseudo researchers at Wikipedia stated: “Another break between Madkhalists and the mainstream of purist Salafism has been the reaction to the Arab Spring. While most purist Salafists initially opposed both the Libyan Civil War and the Syrian Civil War, eventually they threw their support behind the opposition in both cases due to the extreme violence on the part of the Gaddafi and Assad regimes; the Madkhalists attacked the mainstream purists for these stances”. [End of quote]

The so-called terms “Madkhalists” and “Mainstream Purist Salafists” is desperately used by many damn liars to conceal their fake analysis and categorisation in the aforementioned statement. Indeed, we have repeatedly established in this series that there is no such thing as a “Mad’khalist Movement or Strain” within Salafiyyah, let alone anything that would set them apart from so-called “Mainstream Purist Salafists”. This is a false categorisation because Salafiyyah is one and there are no factions within it, however, the fact that the cretins deliberately ignore the facts, embark on a so-called categorisation of the Salafiyyoon, invent so-called differences within Salafiyyah, and use those differences to create a stereotype from which they draw false conclusions. Their main target is Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali because he refuted the misguided figureheads with solid evidence derived from the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah as understood and implemented by the pious predecessors. As a result, they started a smear campaign against him and concocted a group for him within Salafiyyah. Then, the misinformed Muslim believes that this is how things are, rather than how someone has chosen to portray their beliefs without facts, misrepresent realities due to a desire to propagate falsehood or due to ignorance, negligence, and dishonesty, or use mockery and nicknaming to divert people from facts and therefore deceive them. Must read:

Anyone who reviews the information offered in the above links will know -InShaaAllah- that the people they fraudulently refer to as “Mad’khalists” and seek to differentiate from so-called “Mainstream Purist Salafists” are none other than Salafiyyoon, and that this categorisation is nothing but fraudulent research and false categorisation of the highest degree.

Regarding the Arab Spring (i.e. so-called Arab Spring), the cretins claimed that while the majority of Salafists (so-called purists) initially opposed both the Libyan and Syrian Civil Wars, they eventually switched their allegiance to the opposing sides as a result of the extreme violence used by the Gaddafi and Assad regimes. They also claimed that the Madkhalists attacked the mainstream purists for taking these positions. First, we repeat once again that Salafiyyah is one creed, one methodology, and one group based on the teachings of the Qur’an, the authentic Sunnah, and understanding of the Prophet’s companion, and there are no factions or strains within it that are categorised as “Mainstream Purist Salafists” or “Mad’khalists”.

Second, the damn liars must first provide precise details and clarification of the incidents during the so-called Arab Spring, the specific individuals involved, and their stances and statements so that everything is understood in the context that it actually belongs in. This is due to the fact that the Salafiyyoon are well-known and distinct from Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen (The Muslim Brotherhood Sect), the Hizbiyyoon (Illegal Partisans), and Takfeeris (ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and its ilk) in these countries. At this point, the following statement by Dr. Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah preserve him] demonstrates why it is very important to clarify and make this distinction. He said, “Salafis are the target of sectarian bias and bigotry for many factions, from them the Raafidah, Soofiyyah, Kharijites and Takfiris, the blind-followers of the madhaahib, Secularists, Modernists, and many others. As such there is a lot of propaganda in the field which is unfortunately entered into what is claimed to be “objective research”. To make matters more confusing is the presence of numerous orientations falsely ascribing to Salafiyyah despite their deviations from it in their foundations and methodologies. Many of the takfiri, and Khariji groups make this false ascription. This adds another layer of confusion to anyone wanting to research and understand Salafiyyah and leads to Salafis being wrongly attributed to the iniquities of the Takfiris and Kharijites. In light of all of these realities, this website aims to provide relevant information and critical evaluation and analysis of the various views and opinions that are being scattered in books, journals, blogs, websites, audios, and videos in relation to “Salafis” and “Salafiyyah”.

Therefore, claiming that so and so supported, opposed, or changed his position is far from sufficient; rather, full details must be provided and statements examined for their contexts, otherwise, ambiguities, doubts, and a mixture of truth and falsehood would prevail, or the reader is left in one of the following situations: the lack of certainty in comprehending the reality of those statements, positions and circumstances, the lack of wholesome comprehension, comprehending in a way contrary to its true reality, believing that he comprehends while being unaware of something else that should make one realise that he is mistaken, or, one assume that he is well-informed, even though he has overlooked information that contradicts what he believe to be true, or he bases his understanding on ambiguity, even though something else was present that is very clear and contradict his understanding, but he remains in a state of speculation and misguidance, either due to being unaware or duped by the cretins, damn liars and pseudo-researchers at Wikipedia and elsewhere.

Third, the stance of the Salafi Scholars against the so-called Arab Spring is well-known. Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan [may Allah preserve him] was asked, “What do you think about what is now called the Arab Spring?” Response: By Allah, the spring has not brought us any remedy (or cure, or restored something good, etc.) It has not brought us any remedy, rather, (it brought) killing. It has not brought us any remedy, rather (it brought) trial. Unbelievers refer to it as (Arab Spring). The Muslims do not refer to it as “Spring”, rather, they call it trial and evil. True, it is a spring for the unbelievers since it harms Muslims and they are pleased with what harms Muslims. This makes them happy, and it is their spring. [Paraphrased and abridged. Listen here: ]

This was Al-Allaamah Saalih Al-Fawzaan’s stance, so which category do the cretins, damn liars, and pseudo-researchers put him in, the so-called “Mad’khalists”, the so-called “Mainstream Purist Salafists”, or the so-called “Quietists”?! Indeed, their research is plagued with misleading statements and doubts due to their disregard for the fear of Allah and their deep-seated animosity towards the authentic Salafi Methodology. Consequently, they are unhindered in their propagation of falsehoods, distortion, and deceptive arguments. Shaikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah [may Allah have mercy upon him] said, “When it is the case that the person who adjudicates amongst the people in disputes over wealth, blood (such as murder cases, acts of physical violence, etc.), and honour is (threatened) with entry into hell if he is not a just scholar, then what about the one who makes judgements – without knowledge and justice – on creeds, religions, fundamentals of belief, divine knowledge, and general fundamental principles relating to many subject matters, as is the case with Ahlul Bidah Wal Ahwaa [the proponents of religious innovations and followers of vain desires] who follow ambiguous doubtful matters, abandon those explicitly clear texts that the Prophets have transmitted, cling to affairs that share an ambiguous similarity through mere analogy and opinions, and then present affairs whose differences cannot be reconciled or equated.
