[18] 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.

Allah [The Exalted] said:
لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِى رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلْءَاخِرَ وَذَكَرَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًا

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad), you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much. [Surah Al-Ahzaab. Ayah 21]

The deceivers stated: “While most Salafi Muslims in the Western world are noted for adjusting their religious lifestyles for pragmatic participation in the wider society, Madkhalists, in particular, are noted for minimizing contact with non-Muslims”. [End of quote]

First, the understanding of Salafiyyah according to the deceivers is a movement within which there are so-called Salafi Jihadists and others. This is where they stumble from the outset because nothing exists in Salafiyyah except a path based on the Qur’an and the Sunnah as understood by the pious predecessors. Listen and read:

Second, as we have repeatedly established in this series, there is no such thing as a “Mad’khalist Movement or Strain” within Salafiyyah, rather, this term was concocted by those who want to vilify Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Mad’khali [may Allah protect him] because he rebutted and exposed those figureheads who attempted to undermine or falsify the sound Salafi Methodology. The people the cretins refer to as Mad’khalists are none other than the upright Salafiyyoon.

Third, we have already discussed pragmatism in this link:

Fourth, they say that the so-called Mad’khalists have minimal interaction with non-Muslims! This is yet another subjective claim because what is minimal regarding this affair is susceptible to interpretation dependent on each individual Muslim’s interests, employment, and family life. Does the claim that the so-called Mad’khalists have little contact with non-Muslims imply that they only work in places where Muslims work?! Does this claim imply that they only save their money in banks owned by Muslims?! Does this claim imply that they only drive their cars on roads where the majority of drivers are Muslims?! Does this claim imply that they only attend hospital appointments at hospitals where the majority of patients and medical professionals are Muslims?! Does this claim imply that all our neighbours are Muslims?! Or is anyone implying that we are guilty of something blameworthy because we do not socialise in any place where a Muslim is not allowed to do so?! Only the cretins can reveal what what they mean by minimal with regards to this interaction! Indeed, we do not isolate ourselves, rather, we strive to interact with society within what is allowed in the Shariah. Read the following articles:
