Ash-Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee’s Speech regarding Blind Following Ash-Shaykh Rabee


Ash-Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee, may Allah have mercy upon him said:1

“…Ash-Shaykh Rabee’ is a Mujaahid, may Allah reward him with good,
I am inspired by him in his striving efforts to propagate the Sunnah
and invalidating the innovations and its people and in him giving a
(high level of) importance to the Sunnah and in its propagation with
all that he is capable of, I ask Allah to reward him with the best of
reward for that, whereas due to that all Ahlus Sunnah love him HOWEVER
we do not follow him upon falsehood nor do we blindly follow him with
out a proof and I ask Allah to make me and him from those who
cooperate upon righteousness and piousness.”1

Reference: Al-Fataawaa al-Jaliyyah ,(193/2).1

Ash-Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee, may Allah have mercy upon him also said:1

“… is it logical that all the people should take from ash-Shaykh
Rabee’ (only) and that their opinion is limited to the opinion of
ash-Shaykh Rabee’ and that their criticisms/disparagement is
restricted to the criticisms/disparagement of ash-Shaykh Rabee’ and
that their (religious) legal verdicts are confined to the (religious)
legal verdicts of ash-Shaykh Rabee’, this is not logical nor one can
imagine it, not at all!…”1
