Sheikh Waseeallah Abbas Warning Against Attending Lectures of Abu Khadija and Bilal Davis

Sheikh Waseeallah Abbas Comments on the “In Defense of the Salafi Minhaj”Conference In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful. All praise is for Allah, Lord of everything that exists and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon His slave and final Messenger, Muhammad Ibn Abdullah, and upon his family and companions. As to what proceeds. On Friday May 20, 2011 Some of the Students of Knowledge went to visit Sheikh Waseeallah Abbas at his house in the Holy City of Makkah and asked him the following question: “Noble Sheikh, the brothers from Salafi Publications have been invited to speak at an educational seminar (e.g. In Defense of the Salafi Minhaj Conference 2011) in America. Do you advise the Salafis to attend their lectures and benefit from them?” The Sheikh (Hafithahullah) Replied: “I do not advise the brothers to attend this seminar, especially if Abu Khadeejah and Bilal Davis and others are going to be from amongst the speakers there.

However, if there are others who are recognized {for their knowledge and good character} that will be speaking, they should attend. You will see that if they {Abu Khadeejah, Bilal Davis and others} are given the opportunity to address the people, they will divert them from the understanding of Salafiyah. Don’t listen to them and this is something that I have always advised against.”
