http://www.salafimanhaj.com/pdf/SalafiManhaj_TabdiAliHasan

Below is the posts from Salafitalk.net where the evil speeches has been spread about Shaykh Ali Hasan. Once you read the speech of Shaykh Falaah and then compare it with the speeches of Abu khadija and rest, and its simply obvious that they are manipulating the ummah to hate Shaykh Ali and boycott him. Allaahu alaam as to why they intend to harm the legacy of Shaykh Albani rahimallah yet claim to be adherents of minhaj of salaf yet attack the pillars of salafi minhaj in this era. May Allaah guide them if not save the ummah from evil of spubs. Ameen

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO ALI AL-HALABI

Ali Hasan bin Ali bin Abdul-Hameed al-Halabi is from Jordan. He first came to the UK in 1993. He was lauded as a student of the Imaam, the Muhaddith Muhammad Naasir ad-Deen al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah). Though young in age, he became known for sitting in the sessions of Shaikh Al-Albaanee in Jordan during the later years of the life of the Shaikh.

He was a very close companion of Saleem al-Hilaalee and Muhammad Moosa Nasr. In fact all three visited the UK in 1995 – and then their collective and individual visits became more and more regular.

After 1995 they started making regular visits to the USA, Canada, Europe and the Far East. Indeed they became famous due to their visitations of these various locations. One could venture as far as to say that in those times they were more well-known in the West than they were in the Middle-East, wallaahu a’lam.

In the early days whilst Shaikh Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) was alive, they were cautious about their stances towards ahlul-bid’ah and the hizbiyyeen. They would warn against them in general and in sittings with the du’aat (in the UK), they would clearly warn against the likes of the Kuwaiti group known as Ihyaa Turaath al-Islaamee and the followers of Muhammad Suroor. Indeed they would also warn against the likes of Safar al-Hawaalee, Salmaan al-Awdah and the other Qutubees. ALL of this of course in line with the crystal clear manhaj of Shaikh Al-Albaanee.

So the Salafis in general would speak good of them due to this and defend them upon this – believing that they were carrying the aqeedah and manhaj of the Muhaddith and Imaam, Shaikh Al-Albaanee.

However, as time went by, we noticed some contradictions between what they were calling to in public and what they would say in private gatherings
and insinuations they would make in lectures. They would make disparaging remarks towards other well-known scholars. They would try and restrict the
da’wah around them. They would disregard the refutations of the scholars if they opposed their close companions. So we found them defending the likes of Adnaan al-Ar’oor and Muhammad al-Maghraawee.

In 1999, only a few months before the death of Shaikh Al-Albaanee – Abul-Hasan al-Ma’rabi and Saleem al-Hilaalee enforced and imposed upon the Salafi du’aat in the UK a contract containing a command to refer all religious and manhaj affairs/disputes back to Ali Hasan and Saleem al-Hilaalee to the exclusion of the Scholars.

Many of the brothers still remember how Saleem al-Hilaalee and Abul-Hasan gloated at the Salafis, proud to have overpowered them with threats and bullying. Alhamdulillaah, most of the Salafi students of knowledge rejected the contract and either refused to sign or did not bother turning up to the signing. This resulted in several years whereby these very same Jordanians (who had now departed from the teachings of Shaikh Al-Albaanee) warned against the Salafi du’aat who stuck to the scholars in Riyaadh, Madeenah and the South (Saamitah). Wherever they would travel in the West, they would now warn against good Salafi students of knowledge, in Canada, in the USA, in France and across Europe. They tried to raise themselves up as the vanguards of the Salafi da’wah whereas in reality they defended the people of desires, promoted the manhaj of tamyee’ and watering down of the clear Salafi principles.

The issue came to a head during the fitnah of Abul-Hasan al-Ma’rabi (a few years later) when these individuals took to following their desires in opposition to the evidences (when the evidences were brought to them, they refused to accept them) – they waged a campaign against many of the scholars of the Sunnah, such as Shaikh Rabee’, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Ahmad an-Najmee, Shaikh Zaid al-Madkhalee and Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee. All this after the death of Shaikh al-Albaanee.

They started making more and more apparent their disdain for the Scholars of Saudi such as Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee and Shaikh Rabee’. They would openly defend those who the scholars warned against such as al-Maghraawee, Ar’oor, Muhammad al-Hassaan, Abul-Hasan al-Ma’rabi. They would not defend these deviants upon knowledge, but upon desires – they would reject clear-cut evidences presented by the likes of Shaikh Rabee’ and Shaikh
Ubaid al-Jaabiree. Their counter-argument would never go beyond, “there is no consensus of the scholars in their jarh of al-Ma’rabi”(!!) or “Shaikh so-and-so still has not refuted him” or “Shaikh Rabee’ is not a hujjah” (!!) etc. So thousands of Salafis in the West realised the games they were playing and so kept their distance from them.

They would raise themselves to a position where they regarded themselves as equals to the likes of Shaikh Rabee’, Shaikh Muqbil and Shaikh Ahmad an-
Najmee. So much so that many of the youth in the West would regard Ali Hasan and Saleem al-Hilaalee to contemporaries of Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haadee! The reality is that they are not equal or contemporaries of Shaikh Rabee’ – not in ‘ilm and not in age.

Then the Shaytaan led them to the very same Jam’iyyah they used to warn against: Jam’iyyah Ihyaa Turaath of Kuwait! They started working with them
and taking their wealth!

After all this they split amongst themselves, Saleem al-Hilaalee (freed himself and) split from Ali al-Halabi and the others, and their followers likewise split amongst themselves.

So now the scholars warn openly against the innovations of Ali Hasan al-Halabi. Shaikh Ahmad bin Umar Baazmool (hafidhahullaah) compiled a 804 page book in refutation of the deviations of Ali Hasan, called: “Siyaanatus-Salafee min Waswasati wa Talbisaat Ali al-Halabi” – This book is an amazing compilation. So get a copy O Salafi, and remain upon clarity.

Etiquette of eating and drinking


Etiquette of eating and drinking

The first question of Fatwa no. 6008

Q 1: My neighbor gave my young daughter something to drink with her left hand. When I informed her that it is Satan who drinks with his left hand and supported my saying by the authentic Hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the Hadith of the girl and the Bedouin, she argued that the Hadith address the person who drinks, not the person who gives someone something to drink. Please answer me because my neighbor is not convinced.

A: It was authentically reported on the authority of Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that The Prophet (peace be upon him) has commanded Muslims to eat and drink with the right hand giving reasons for that by the fact that Satan eats and drinks with his left hand. In another Hadith reported on the authority of Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him)

(Part No. 22; Page No. 132)

who said that the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade eating with the left hand, saying: “Do not eat with yourleft hand, for Satan eats with his left hand.” These Hadith indicate that it is forbidden to eat or drink with theleft hand in order not to imitate our enemy, Satan.

In the Hadith of the girl and the Bedouin whom Satan brought to eat without mentioning the Name of Allah, the Prophet (peace be upon him) held their hands so that Satan would not have food through their eating. Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) justified his action, saying: “Satan considers that food lawful for himself on which the Name of Allah is not mentioned. He (Satan) brought this girl to make the food lawful through her but I caught her hand. Then, he brought the Bedouin to make food lawful through him but I caught his hand too. By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, now Satan’s hand is in my grasp along with her hand.” The wording of another narration reads: …along with their hands. (Related by Muslim in his Sahih (authentic) Book of Hadith)

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

The third question of Fatwa no. 20961

What is the ruling on taking and giving things with the left hand; is it Haram (prohibited) or Makruh (disliked)?

A: According to the authentic reports, giving and taking things with the left hand is prohibited. It is reported on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, Let one of you eat with his right hand, drink with his right hand, take with his right hand, and give with his righthand, for Satan eats with his left hand, drinks with his left hand, gives with his left hand, and takes with hisleft hand. (Related by Ahmad and Ibn Majah, and this is his narration).

The third question of Fatwa no. 6724

Q 3: Is it permissible to hold bread with the left hand or not? I see 90% of the people take bread in their left hand to cut it or hold it, as bread is soft and they cannot eat it with the right hand without using the left. I hope that you will advise me on this.

A: It is permissible to hold bread with the left hand, but taking bread from and giving it to others should be done with the right hand, according to Islamic etiquette. It is not permissible to eat bread using the left hand, as long as it is possible to use the right.

Asalaam allaikum rahmatullahee wa barkatuhoo

Thank you for stopping by this blog. In this blog my only effort is to convey the message of Islam in the manner it was revealed, conveyed, and practisied by the salaf us salaiheen.

Indeed, the workers in the field of Islamic Da’wah have become numerous, and those who direct their attention to the youth of the “Islaamic Renaissance” are many. All of these people make intense efforts, work hard and exhaust themselves in order to renew the Islamic way of life.

And in the midst of this overflowing and turbulent sea, you will find groups of elders and youths. As for the elders, they are content to just return home with their lives. But as for the youth, they tighten their waist straps and kick their feet into their riding horses. However, both of these groups are in confusion and turmoil. Therefore, the concept of the Salafee Manhaj must be presented in relation to the revival of the rightly guided Islaamic lifestyle based upon the prophetic way:

Indeed, (1) purifying Islaam from what does not belong in it, with regard to beliefs, rulings and manners, so that it can slowly return to its pure and clear state as it was revealed to Muhammad (saws). And (2) educating the Muslim generations upon this purified Islaam with an upbringing based on Eemaan (firm faith) and intense actions, this is the methodology of the Salafee Da’wah and the Victorious Group in bringing about change

· What or who is Salaf?
· What is Salafiyyah?
· Who is a Salafee?
· Is it another party/group?
· What is the call of Da’watus-Salafiyah?
· Allaah Has Named us Muslims, So Why Ascribe Ourselves to the Salaf?

 What or who is Salaf?

The word Salaf is a shortened version of the word Salafus-Saalih, which means the Righteous Predecessors. It refers specifically to the first three generations of Islaam. The first, the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam & his Sahaabah (companions). The second, the Taabi’een (the followers of the companions). The third, the Tabaa’at-Taabi’een (the followers of the followers of the companions). Generally, this term refers to all those pious predecessors who followed the way of the Salaf and who have preceded us in time.

· What is Salafiyyah?

It is the way of following the Salaf, in creed/belief, speech and actions, regardless of time or location. It is to understand and implement the religion as was understood and implemented by the Salaf. Following it exactly to the best of ones ability, and to beware and refrain from that which opposes it.


· Who is a Salafee?

 

 

 The person who ascribes and adheres to the way of the Salaf. Just like the one born in a certain country is called the countryman of that country, due to his ascription to it. In other words the person who says “I am one who ascribes myself to the way of Salafus-Saalih, who are the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam & his Sahaabah, the Taabi’een, and the Tabaa’at-Taabi’een in creed, speech and actions.” It should be noted that a mere claim is not sufficient to establish the proof that one adheres to it.

 

· Is salafiyah another party/group?

 

 No it is NOT a party from among the parties, regardless of what people may claim. It is only an ascription to the Salafus-Saalih and their methodology, and calling to this noble methodology. It has NO Imaam, except for Abul-Qaasim Muhammad ibn Abdillaah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam.
Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan was asked, “Is Salafiyyah a hizb (party) from amongst the parties. And is ascribing to them (i.e. the Salafis) a blameworthy thing?”
To which he replied, “As-Salafiyyah (i.e. the Salafis) is the Saved Sect, and they are Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah. It is not a hizb (party) from amongst the various parties, those which are called “parties” today. Rather they are the Jamaa’ah, the Jamaa’ah upon the Sunnah and upon the Deen (religion). They are Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah. The Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said, “There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah manifest and upon the truth not being harmed by those who forsake them neither by those who oppose them” and he (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) also said, “And this Ummah will split into seventy-three sects, all of them in the Hellfire but one”. They said, which one is this O Messenger of Allaah? He replied, “They are those who are upon what I and my companions are upon today”. Hence Salafiyyah is a group of people (i.e. the Salafis) upon the madhhab of the Salaf, upon what the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) and his companions were upon and it is not a hizb from amongst the contemporary groups present today. Rather it is the very old Jamaa’ah, from the time of the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) which inherits (this way) and continues, and which never ceases to be upon the manifest truth until the establishment of the Hour, as he (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) has informed (us).” (Cassette: “at-Tahdheer min al-Bid’ah” second cassette, delivered as a lecture in Hawtah Sadeer, 1416H).

 

· What is the call of Da’watus-Salafiyah?

 

 It is the pure religion which calls to Tawheed (singling out Allaah) and sincerity of worship. The call of all the prophets and messengers. –Allaamah Ubayd al-Jaabiree

 

· Allaah Has Named us Muslims, So Why Ascribe Ourselves to the Salaf?

 

 

Shiekh Salim Al Hilalee 

Answer: We will present to the noble reader a short debate that occurred between our Shaikh (i.e. Al-Albaanee), rahimahullaah, and the professor ‘Abdul-Haleem Abu Shaqqah, author of the book “The woman’s liberation during the time of the Revelation”:

The Shaikh said: “If it is said to you ‘What is your madh-hab’, what will you say?”

He said: I will say: “I am Muslim.”

The Shaikh said: “This is not sufficient.”

He said: “But Allaah has named us Muslims.” And then he recited the verse: “It is He who has named you Muslims since before.” [Surah Al-Hajj: 78]

So the Shaikh said: “This is a correct answer – if we were living during the first generation, before the spreading of groups. So if we were to ask any Muslim today, from these groups that we differ with fundamentally in Creed, his response would not be any different from this word, for all of them – the Shi’ee, the Raafidee, the Khaarijee, the Durzee, the Nusairee, the ‘Alawee – would say ‘I am Muslim.’ So this is not sufficient in these days.”

He said: “So then I will say: ‘I am a Muslim upon the Qur’aan and the Sunnah.’”

So the Shaikh said: “This is also not sufficient.”

He said: “Why not?”

The Shaikh said: “Do you find any person from the people we have just used as an example saying: ‘I am a Muslim that is not upon the Qur’aan and the Sunnah.’ Which person will say that he is not upon the Qur’aan and the Sunnah?” Then the Shaikh began to explain to him the importance of this supplemental phrase, which we have adopted. And it is: The Qur’aan and the Sunnah with the understanding of the Salaf As-Saalih (righteous predecessors).

He said: “So then I am a Muslim on the Qur’aan and the Sunnah with the understanding of the Salaf As-Saalih (righteous predecessors).”

The Shaikh said: “So if someone were to ask you what is your madh-hab, you would tell him that?”

He said: “Yes.”

So the Shaikh said: “What do you think if we were to shorten that linguistically, for the best types of speech is that which is short but has a lot of meaning? So let us (just) say: I am a Salafee.”

He said: “I could be polite to you and say yes, but my belief is the same as before. Because when people hear that you are a Salafee, the first thing that will come into their minds are occurrences in which they experienced harshness from some of the extremists amongst the Salafees.”

The Shaikh said: “Assuming your words were correct, if you said: ‘I am a Muslim’, will they not think that you are a Shi’ee or a Raafidee or a Durzee or an Isma’eelee, etc.?”

He said: “Possibly, but I would have followed the noble verse: ‘It is He who has named you Muslims.’”

So the Shaikh said: “No, my brother! You did not follow the verse because the verse refers to the correct form of Islaam. It is necessary that you speak to the people according to their levels of comprehension – will anyone understand from you that you are a Muslim according to the intended meaning of the verse?

And the things that you warned about just now may be correct or they may not because your mentioning ‘harshness’ – this can be found in some individuals, but not as a methodology of belief and knowledge. So leave the individuals to the side for we are talking about the methodology. This is since if we were to say: ‘Shi’ee’ or ‘Durzee’ or ‘Khaarijee’ or ‘Sufi’ or ‘Mu’tazilee’, these same things that you warned about (i.e. harshness) would appear from them (also).”

So this is not our discussion. We are looking for a name that provides an indication of a person’s belief, which he worships Allaah with.”

Then the Shaikh said: “Were not all of the Sahaabah Muslims?”

He said: “Of course.”

The Shaikh said: “But in spite of this, there was among them those who stole and those who fornicated, but this did not lead any of them to say: ‘I am not a Muslim.’ Rather, he was a Muslim – a believer in Allaah and His Messenger SAWS as a methodology – however he would contradict his methodology at times, for he was not infallible.

Therefore, may Allaah bless you, we are talking about a word that indicates our belief, our ideas, and our source of reference in our life in that which is related to the affairs of our religion, which we worship Allaah by. And as for this person being harsh and that person being lenient, then that is another matter.”

Then the Shaikh said: “I want you to contemplate on this concise word until you no longer persist in (just using) the word Muslim. And you know well that there doesn’t exist anyone that will understand what you are intending to say at all, so speak to the people according to their levels of comprehension. And May Allaah bless you for your compliance.·

So Who Are Ahl ul-Hadith?

 Author: Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haadee al-Madkhalee
Source: Makaanat Ahl ul-Hadith (trans. by Bilal Davies, forthcoming SP release) They are those who proceed upon the way of the Companions and those who followed them in righteousness, in clinging to the Book and the Sunnah, biting onto that with their molar teeth, and letting them (i.e., the Qur’aan and the Sunnah) take precedence over any statement or code and conduct – whether in belief, or acts of worship such as dealings and transactions, mannerisms, politics or social life. They are those who are firm in regards to the fundamentals of the religion and its subsections, upon that which Allaah sent down and revealed upon his servant and Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam). They are those establishing the call to that with all effort, sincerity and firm will. They are those carrying the knowledge of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam), expelling from it the distortions of those who have exaggerated (in its regard) and the undue claims of the people of falsehood and the interpretations of the ignorant ones. They are those who are observant and lie in wait for every group that has deviated from the way of Islaam, like the Jahmees and the Mu’tazilees and the Khawaarij and the Rawaafidh and the Murji’ah and the Qadriyyah and all of those who have deviated from the way of Allaah and have followed their desires in every time and place – they not affected by the reproach of the blamers, in the cause of Allaah. They are the group that the Messenger of Allaah has praised and commended in his saying, “There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah manifest and upon the truth not being harmed by those who forsake them neither by those who oppose them until the hour is established.” [1]
They are the Saved Sect firm upon that which the Messenger and his Companions were upon, those who have been distinguished and defined by the Messenger of Allaah when he mentioned that this Ummah shall divide into seventy three sects all going to the Hell-fire except one and it was said, “Who are they, O Messenger of Allaah?” He said, “They are those who are upon that which I and my Comapnions are upon.”  And this is not something we say in exageration or a mere claim, but verily we speak a reality that the text of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah bears witness to, which history bears witness to, and to which their (i.e., the Ahlul-Hadeeth’s) statements, their state of affairs, their writings and works also bear witness to. They are those who put before their eyes the statement of Allaah: And hold fast, all of you together, to the rope of Allaah. [2]
And His statement: And let those who oppose the Messengers commandment beware lest some fitnahbefall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them. [3]
They are the most staunch in distancing themselves from opposing the command of the Messenger and the most distant from fitnah. They are those who make their constitution: But no, by your Lord! They can have no faith, until they make you (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no
resistance against your decisions, and accept them with full submission [4]
They are those who give to the Qur’aan and the Sunnah their true worth and give it the honour and veneration it deserves, giving priority to them over all the statements of mankind, and give precedence to their guidance over the guidance of all the people, and they judge by them in all affairs with complete pleasure, with chests which are expanded and free of restraint or constriction, and they submit to Allaah and His Messenger (with) a complete submission in their ‘aqeedah and their worship and their dealings. They are those concerning whom the statement of Allaah holds true: The only saying of the faithful believers when they are called to Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) to judge between them, is that they say, “We hear and we obey,” and such are the prosperous ones.[5]
They after all of the Comapanions – and at the head of them the rightly guided  Caliphs – are the leaders of the taabi’een and at the head of them: Sa’eed ibn al-Musayyib (d. 90H), ‘Urwah ibn Zubair (d. 94H), ‘Alee ibn al-Hussain Zain al-’Aabideen (d. 93H), Muhammad ibn Hanafiya (d. 80H), ‘Ubaydullaah ibn ‘Abdillaah ibn ‘Utbah ibn Mas’ood (d. 94H or later), Saleem ibn ‘Abdillaah ibn ‘Umar (d. 106H), Qaasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abee Bakr as-Sadeeq (d. 106H), al-Hasan al-Basree (d. 110H), Muhammad ibn Sireen (d. 110H), ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul-’Azeez (d. 101H) and Muhammad ibn Shihaab az-Zuhree (d. 125H).
Then the Atbaa’at-Taabi’een and at the head of them: Imaam Maalik (d. 179H), al-Awzaa’ee (d. 157H), Sufiyaan ibn Sa’eed ath-Thawree (d. 161H), Sufyaan ibn Uyayna (d198H), Ismaa’eel ibn Ubya??? (d. 193H), Layth ibn Sa’d (d. 175H) and Aboo Haneefah an-Nu’maan (d. 150H).
Then those who followed them and at the head of them: ‘Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak (d. 181H), Wakee’ ibn al-Jarraah (d. 197H), the Imaam Muhammad ibn Idrees ash-Shaafi’ee (d. 204H), ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Mahdee (d. 198H), Yahya ibn Sa’eed al-Qataan (d198H) and Afaan ibn Muslim (d. 219H).Then their students who followed them in this methodology, and at the head of them: the Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (d. 241H), Yahya ibn Ma’een (d. 233H) and ‘Alee ibn al-Madeenee (d. 234H). Then their students like al-Bukhaaree (d. 256H), Muslim (d. 261H), Abee Haatim (d. 277H), Abee Zara’ (Aboo Zur’ah?) (d. 264H), Aboo Daawood (d. 275H), at-Tirmidhee (d. 279H) and an-Nasaa’ee (d. 303H).Then those who proceeded in their way in the generations that preceded them, like Ibn Jareer (at-Tabaree?) (d. 310H), Ibn Khuzaymah (d. 311H), ad-Daaraqutnee d. 385H) in his time, al-Khateeb al-Baghdaadee (d. 463H) and Ibn ‘Abdul-Barr an-Niwaaree (d. 463H).
And ‘Abdul-Ghanee al-Maqdasee (d. 620H), Ibn Salaah (d. 643H), Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H), al-Mizzee (d. 743H), adh-Dhahabee (d. 748H), Ibn Katheer (d. 774H) and their contemporaries who lived in their time and those who came after them, and followed their footsteps in holding on to the Book and the Sunnah up until the present day.
These are who I mean by Ahlul-Hadeeth.NOTES
