The Islamic group closest to the Truth nowadays
The first question of Fatwa no. 6250
Q 1: In the Islamic world today there are many groups and Sufi Tariqahs (orders), such as Al-Tabligh Group (a group calling to Islam), Al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimun (the Muslim Brotherhood), Sunnis and Shiites. Which is the group that truly applies the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace be upon him)?
A: The closest of all Islamic groups to the Truth and the keenest to apply it: Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream). They are Ahl Al-Hadith (the scholars of Hadith), Ansar Al-Sunnah group and then the Al-Ikhwan-ul-Muslimun (the Muslim Brotherhood).
(Part No. 2; Page No. 238)
In general, each of these groups and others as well involves right and wrong. You should cooperate with them in their correct views, and avoid the mistakes they made, and always offer one another mutual advice and help in the cause of righteousness and piety.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

CLICK BELOW TO READ THE SPEECH OF SHAYKH FALAH
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.
