My Call & Those Who Go Against It

Author:
Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh

Translated by:
Ab Muhammed Selefy







بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh said the following while describing himself and his Dawah (call) to Tawhd,

أُخبركم أني - ولله الحمد - عقيدتي وديني الذي أدين الله به : مذهب أهل السنة والجماعة الذي عليه أئمة المسلمين ، مثل الأئمة الأربعة وأتباعهم إلى يوم القيامة ؛ لكني بينت للناس إخلاص الدين لله ، ونهيتهم عن دعوة الأنبياء والأموات من الصالحين وغيرهم ، وعن إشراكهم في ما يعبد الله به من الذبح والنذر والتوكل والسجود وغير ذلك مما هو حق الله الذي لا يشركه فيه ملك مقرب و لا نبي مرسل ، وهو الذي دعت إليه الرسل من أولهم إلى آخرهم ، وهو الذي عليه أهل السنة والجماعة .

I tell you that -al-Hamdulillh (all praise is due to Allh)- my belief and my religion, according to which I worship Allh, is the way of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamah, which was the way of the Imms of the Muslims, such as the Four Imms and their followers until the Day of Resurrection. But I explain to people that they must devote their worship sincerely to Allh (Ikhls). I forbid them to call upon the Anbiy (pl. Nab; Prophets) and the dead among the righteous and others, and from associating them with Allh in any act of worship that should be done for Allh alone, such as adh-Dhabh (sacrifice), an-Nadhr (vowing), at-Tawakkul (reliance), as-Sujd (prostration), and other actions which are due to Allh and in which no one should be associated with Him, not any angel who is close to Him or any Nab who was sent. This is the message which was proclaimed by all the Rusul (pl. Rasl; Messengers), from the first of them to the last of them, and this is what Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamah is upon.[1]

Then Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh described those who go against his Dawah and said,


وأنا صاحب منصب في قريتي ، مسموع الكلمة ، فأنكر هذا بعض الرؤساء لكونه خالف عادة نشؤوا عليها . وأيضا ألزمت من تحت يدي بإقام الصلاة وإيتاء الزكاة وغير ذلك من فرائض الله ، ونهيتهم عن الربا وشرب المسكر ، وأنواع من المنكرات ،فلم يمكن الرؤساء القدح في هذا وعيبه لكونه مستحسنا عند العوام ، فجعلوا قدحهم وعداوتهم في ما آمر به من التوحيد ، وما نهيتهم عنه من الشرك ، ولبَّسوا على العوام أن هذا خلاف ما عليه الناس ، وكبرت الفتنة جدا ..."

I hold a high position in my village and people listen to me. Some of the leaders denounced this because it goes against the customs they grew up with. I also obliged those who are under me to establish the Salh (daily prayers), pay the Zakh, and to fulfill other things which Allh made obligatory, and I forbade them to deal with Rib (interest), drinking the Muskirt (intoxicants), and other kinds of Munkart (forbidden things). The leaders could not criticize this or find fault with it since it is something that is liked by the common folk. So they directed their criticism and enmity against that which I enjoin of Tawhd and that which I forbid of Shirk, and they confused the common folk by saying that this goes against what everyone is doing, and they caused a great deal of Fitnah (trials/tribulations)[2]

Whosoever desires الْعِزَّةَ al-Izzah (honour, power and glory) then to Allah belong all الْعِزَّةَ al-Izzah [and one can get honour, power and glory only by obeying and worshiping Allah (Alone)]. To Him ascend (all) الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ al-Kalim al-Tayyib (the goodly words), and الْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ al-Amal al-Saalih (the righteous deeds) exalt it (the goodly words i.e., the goodly words are not accepted by Allah unless and until they are followed by good deeds). (Fatir 35/10)
