خُطْبَةُ الْحَاجَةِ

إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ لِلّٰهِ، نَحْمَدُهُ، وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ، وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ، وَنَعُوذُ بِاللهِ مِنْ شُرُورِ أَنْفُسِنَا، وَمِنْ سَيِّئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنَا، مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللهُ فَلاَ مُضِلَّ لَهُ، وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْ فَلاَ هَادِيَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ.

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلاَ تَمُوتُنَّ إِلاَّ وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُونَ.﴾ [آل عمران: 102]

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ نَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالاً كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا.﴾ [النساء: 1]

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللهَ وَقُولُوا قَوْلاً سَدِيدًا. يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَنْ يُطِعِ اللهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا.﴾ [الأحزاب: 71-70]

أَمَّا بَعْدُ: فَإِنَّ أَصْدَقَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابُ اللهِ، وَخَيْرَ الْهَدْيِ هَدْيُ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَشَرَّ الْأُمُورِ مُحْدَثَاتُهَا، وَكُلَّ مُحْدَثَةٍ بِدْعَةٌ، وَكُلَّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلاَلَةٌ، وَكُلَّ ضَلاَلَةٍ فِي النَّارِ.


Khutbatul Hjah (The Sermon of Necessity)

All praise is due to Allh. We praise Him, seek His help, and seek His forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allh from the evil within ourselves and our evil deeds. Whoever Allh guides, there is no one who can led him astray, and whoever Allh leads astray, then there is no one who can guide him. I bear witness there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh, He is One and He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Rasl (Messenger).

O you who believe! Fear Allh as He should be feared, and die not except as Muslims. (l-i Imrn 3/102)

O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him He created his wife, and from them both He created many men and women and fear Allh through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and beware of severing the ties of kinship. Surely, Allh is Ever an All-Watcher over you. (an-Nis 4/1)

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allh and fear Him, and speak the truth. He will set your deeds right and forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allh and His Messenger, has truly achieved a great triumph. (al-Ahzb 33/70-71)

Amm Bad (to Proceed):

Verily, the most truthful speech is the Kalmullh (Speech of Allh), the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam. The worst of affairs are the newly invented matters. Every newly invented matter is a Bidah (religious innovation), and every Bidah is a Dallah (misguidance), and every misguidance is in the Nr (Hellfire).[1]

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Our Dawah (Call)

Our sole purpose primarily, is to circulate the Aqidah of Tawhid everywhere we are able to reach. This is the call of all the Rasul (messenger) and Nabi (prophet) from Adam (alayhi salam) to the Khatamul Anbiya (the last of the prophets) Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), striving against all types of Kufr and Shirk that nullify Tawhid and exposing fake deities and Taaghout which call people to worship them. Allah Taala states the following Ayah in this regards:

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلّٰهِ فَإِنِ انْتَهَوْا فَإِنَّ اللّٰهَ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ
And fight them on until there is no more persecution, and religion becomes Allah's in its entirety. (al-Baqarah 2/193; al-Anfal 8/39)

In addition, the Aqidah of al-Wara wal Bara which is one of the most important Rukn (pillar) of Tawhid, the Takfir of the Mushrikin fixed to the Aqidah of al-Wara wal Bara, accordingly the limits of Imaan and Kufr becoming evident is one of the hallmarks of our Dawah. The removal of the doubts regarding the matters of Aqidah, especially in the matters of Imaan and Kufr that are innovated by the Dai (caller) of Baatil (falsehood) is also one of our purposes. We aspire to establish the Wasat (medium) Aqidah of Ahlus Sunna wal Jamaah that is far from Ifrat (taking maters to the extreme) and Tarfit (neglecting its true meaning).

After Tawhid, the most important topic we call to is the Sunnah. Connotation especially to the matters of Aqidah but not limited to it; accepting and practicing every matter of Islam as Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashaab counseled and lived, also rejecting every Bidah innovated after them. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) in a Sahih (authentic) Hadith stated that his Ummah (nation) will be divided into seventy-three sects and that only one of them will be saved. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) named them as Firqai Naajiyah (the Saved Group) and described their affair stating:


مَا أَنَا عَلَيْهِ وَأَصْحَابِي
(Those who follow) my path and the path of my Ashaab (companions)... 2

The Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah is the only group that follows this noble path.

No individual or group entered the saved group by merely identifying themselves as Ahlus Sunnah. The most apparent quality of the Ahlus Sunnah is submitting to the Salafus Salihin (the righteous predecessors) whom are the best of the people and the first three generations (of beginning of the Islam) and staying away from the Bidah and Munkar (evil) that was innovated by the Khalaf (later generations). As narrated in the Sahih (of Bukhari) from Imran bin Husayn (radiyallahu anh) Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) stated:


خَيْرُ أُمَّتِي قَرْنِي، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، - قَالَ عِمْرَانُ فَلاَ أَدْرِي: أَذَكَرَ بَعْدَ قَرْنِهِ قَرْنَيْنِ أَوْ ثَلاَثًا - ثُمَّ إِنَّ بَعْدَكُمْ قَوْمًا يَشْهَدُونَ وَلاَ يُسْتَشْهَدُونَ وَيَخُونُونَ وَلاَ يُؤْتَمَنُونَ، وَيَنْذُرُونَ وَلاَ يَفُونَ، وَيَظْهَرُ فِيهِمُ السِّمَنُ
The best of my followers are those living in my generation (i.e. my contemporaries). And then those who will follow the latter. -Imran (radiyallahu anh) added: I do not remember whether he mentioned two or three generations after his generation- There will come after you, people who will bear witness without being asked to do so, and will be treacherous and untrustworthy, and they will vow and never fulfill their vows, and fatness will appear among them."3

After Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashaab, the Rabbani Ulama took on the mission of calling to Tawhid and the Sunnah fitting the Hadith:

الْعُلَمَاءُ خُلَفَاءُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ إِنَّ الأَنْبِيَاءَ
The scholars are the successors of the prophets."4

At this point, our goal is to become a bridge between Ilm and the people by conveying the legacy concerning the Ilm (sacred knowledge) of the Rabbani Ulama, which attained the mission of calling to Tawhid and the Sunnah after the prophets. The source of this Ilm reaches Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) through Jibril-i Amin (alayhi salam) to the Lord of the Worlds (Jalla wa Jalaluhu). The Ulama will represent this Ilm until the Day of Qiyamah (Doomdsay). Since Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) stated:

لاَ يَزَالُ مِنْ أُمَّتِي أُمَّةٌ قَائِمَةٌ بِأَمْرِ اللّٰهِ، لاَ يَضُرُّهُمْ مَنْ خَذَلَهُمْ، وَلاَ مَنْ خَالَفَهُمْ، حَتَّى يَأْتِيَهُمْ أَمْرُ اللّٰهِ وَهُمْ عَلَى ذٰلِكَ
"A group of people amongst my followers will remain obedient to Allah's orders and they will not be harmed by anyone who will not help them or who will oppose them, till Allah's Order (the Last Day) comes upon them while they are still on the right path."5

That is why it is also our goal to spread the books of the Ulamaa (pl. Alim; scholars) whom had been stand bearers of the Aqidah of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah throughout history and the Ilm that they inherited from Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). In order to reach this goal; we take the Manhaj (methodology of attaining Ilm) of the Salafus Salihin whom are praised by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) as base for us. We would like to convey the legacy of the Aimmah (pl. Imam) of Hadith and Sunnah who had not been affected from Kalaam (theological rhetoric) and philosopy, persistent upon the Aqidah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his Ashaab, in short; the scholars among the Firqa-i Najiyaah and Taifatul Mansura (Victorious Group).

Our call (Inshallah) will never be calling people to our own views that have no base from the Salaf nor to groups that have been consituted by the Asabiyyah (tribalism/nationalism) of Jaahiliyyah (the prelslaamic days of ignorance).

Tawfiq (success) is lies in Allah Taala...

Muqaddimah (Preface) of the Publisher

All praise belongs to Allah who has made us successful in publishing the second book in the Pamphlets of Tawhid series. We had compiled pamphlets containing fundamental knowledge and terms the individual who is new in learning the Aqidah (creed) of Tawhid would need.

In this book, we compiled some pamphlets as a guide and provision for the one who has begun to learn and adhere to the Aqidah of Tawhid. Hence, the mentioned pamphlets contain important advice regarding difficulty an individual could come across when he has commenced to live and call to Tawhid.

In reality, when the life of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhab (rahimahullah), the author of these pamphlets, is inspected, it can be seen that the matters explained in these pamphlets are personal experiences lived in Jihad.

An individual holding on to Tawhid will witness that he will be subjected to doubts, oppression, and deceit brought by his most closest. He will also find that some of his fellow companions will deceive by falling into obedience to such doubts and tricks. If those individuals requesting to live Tawhid live heedless of such occurrences without any preparation, they will come face to face with the astray path thus resulting in the torment and punishment of Allah Taala.

At the same time, we hope that it is better understood in the example of Shaykh Muhammad (rahimahullah) from these pamphlets that the caller to Tawhid must necessarily be broad-minded. The reason being, the Shaykh did not limit his call to merely his family and his countrymen (fellow citizens), rather as it will be witnessed from the book, he tried to transport the Dawah (call) of Tawhid to distant abodes that could be considered as the other end of the earth in his era, such as Morocco. In reality, this is not his, but personally the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi was sallam).

Although in summary, some details regarding the issues of Tawhid and responses given to doubts take place in this book.
 
The Takhrij (extraction and authentication) of the Ahadith (pl., Hadith) and Athar (narrations) and sources have been done within the extent of our capabilities, and our own explanations have been included as footnotes in necessity. Also included is the life of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhab, the characteristic of his Ilm (knowledge), and the reality of his Dawah have been included as an introduction.

We ask our Lord to make this a means to benefit from both Dunya (worldly life) and Akhirah (hereafter) and a means of guidance for those in Dalalah (misguidance).
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)

The Life, Knowledgeable Characteristic, and Struggle of
Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh[1]

His Birth and Upbringing

The Shaykh Muhammed bin Abdil Wahhb bin Sulaymn bin Al at-Tamim Rahimahullh was born in the year 1115H (1703 CE) at Uyaynah, a city of Najd in the Arabian Peninsula.

His father Abdul Wahhb and grandfather Sulaymn were amongst the renowned knowledgeable individuals of the area of Najd, and thus were the source of Fatw (religious verdicts) during their time. His grandfather, Sulaymn bin Al lived during the era of the eminent Hanbal Faqh (jurist), Mansr al-Baht Rahimahullh, author of Kashshaful Qin, it is reported that they met in Makkah. In this manner, the Shaykh grew up in an environment occupied by Ilm.

His Shuykh (pl. of Shaykh; Teachers) and His Travels to Seek Ilm (Knowledge)

Shaykh Muhammad Rahimahullh learned the Qurn and attained basic knowledge from his father. He memorized the Qurn before the age of ten. He mastered the Hanbal Fiqh (jurisprudence) along with its Isnd (chain of narration) to Imm Ahmad Rahimahullh from his father and grandfather. His father appointed him as the Imm (leader) of Salh (daily prayers), once he reached puberty. It is also reported his father would say, I have learned many beneficial matters regarding the Ahkm (pl. of Hukm; rulings) from him.[2]

According to his grandson Shaykh Abdul Latf Rahimahullh, he had gone to the Haramayn (two sacred cities; Makkah and Madnah), gathered with the Shuykh of the area, attained Ijzah (the grant of permission or authority) from some of them, and later went to the cities Basra and Ahs and took lessons from the Shuykh.

Shaykh Abdul Latf bin Abdir Rahmn Rahimahullh mentions the inclination of his grandfather, Shaykh Muhammad, to Tawhd and taking the Qurn and Sunnah as his guide by abandoning blind following being influenced greatly by the Shaykhul Haramayn of his era, Muhammad Hayyt as-Sind, whom he studied Hadth from at Hijz.[3]

His other grandson Shaykh Sulaymn bin Abdillh Rahimahullh mentioned names such as Al Afand ad-Dghistn, the author of the famous Kashful Khaf al-Ajln, Abdullh bin Ibrhm an-Najd, and Abl Mawhib al-Hanbal amongst his teachers. He studied various books on Fiqh (jurisprudence), Hadth, Srah (history), Lughah (the Arabic language), especially the nine basic Hadth books from the mentioned scholars and others with their Sanad (Isnd).

Also through his teacher Abdullh bin Ibrhm an-Najd, he had the honour of narrating some of the Ahdth (pl. of Hadth) with their Isnd reaching Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam.[4]

His Students

Besides his sons Abdullh, Husayn, and Ibrhm Rahimahumullh; his grandson Abdur Rahmn bin Hasan Rahimahullh; his companions in Dawah such as Sud bin Abdul Azz Rahimahullh are amongst his students from his close surrounding, other scholars such as Hamad bin Nsir bin Uthmn l-i Muammar, Abdul Azz bin Husayn an-Nsir, Sad bin Hijj, and Husayn bin Ghannm Rahimahumullh were educated in his circle of knowledge.

His Works
Alongside his many works, the most famous ones are as follows:

Kitbut Tawhd (The Book of Monotheism), Kashf'ush Shubuht (Removal of the Doubts), Manat Tght (the Meaning of Tght), al-Usluth Thalthah (The Three Fundamentals), al-Qawidul Arbaah (The Four Principles), ar-Rislatul Mufdah (the Beneficial, Important and Precious Pamphlet), Mukhtasaru Sratir Rasl (The Concise History of the Rasl), dabul Mashyi ilas Salh (the Manner of Walking Towards Prayer), Mufdul Mustafd (Beneficial Benefeciary), al-Jawhirul Mudhiyyah (the Illuminating Gems), Masilul Jhiliyyah (The Issues of the Era of Ignorance), and other short pamphlets regarding Aqdah,

He also has authored many beneficial books such as Fadhlul Islm (The Superiority of Islm), Uslul mn (The Foundation of Faith), al-Kabir (the Major Sins), Mukhtasarul Insf wash Sharhil Kabr, and Majmul Hadth al Abwbil Fiqh (A Compilation of Hadth According to the Topics of Fiqh).

Most of the works by the Shaykh Muhammad Rahimahullh have been gathered in Majmu Muallaftish Shaykhi Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb in thirteen volumes. It is also possible to find many of his Rasil (pamphlets) in ad-Durarus Saniyyah in eleven volumes.

His Da'wah (Call)

The Shaykh Rahimahullh began his Dawah of Tawhd in Basrah and because he had gained the enmity of some individuals, on a hot summers day, he had to leave the city on foot. After this, he went to Huraymilah; however, when there was an attempt for his assassination, he left the city.

Then he set off to Uyaynah and was under the Himyah (protection) of Uthmn bin Muammar, the Amr of Uyaynah. In Uyaynah, events to destroy places of Shirk such as the tomb of Zayd Ibnul Khattb Radiyallhu Anh being demolished to begin with and the application of Rajm (stoning to death) to a female as the punishment of Zin (fornication) under the leadership of the Shaykh had terrified the enemies of Islm, and finally, Uthmn bin Muaamar submitted to the repression and treachery and expelled the Shaykh from Uyaynah.

Leaving Uyaynah, the Shaykh Muhammad Rahimahullh went to ad-Diriyyah in the year 1158H, and there he met Muhammad bin Sud. Ibnu Sud accepted the call of Tawhd by the Shaykh and promised he would assist his Dawah all the way. After such pact, they struggled together and did not part until death.

After this alliance of sword and pen, the Dawah (call) of Tawhd spread in waves, starting from the villages and towns, and ultimately along with the establishment of administration relying on the Aqdah, the Salaf Dawah which the Shaykh lead began to be heard everywhere.

His Death and Eulogy

After a life built upon Ilm (knowledge), Amal (action), Dawah (invitation) and Sabr (patience), the Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh died at the age of 92 in the year 1206H (1792 CE).

Following his death, scholars such as Imm ash-Shawkn (1250H/1834 CE) and Husayn bin Ghannm (1225H/1811 CE), a scholar from among the Ulam (scholars) of Ahs, wrote odes for him.

Also, al-Amr as-Sann the author of the renowned books such as Subulus Salm and Tathrul Itiqd had written a Qasdah (ode) praising him during his life time.

May Allh Subhnahu have mercy upon Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb and all those Muwahhid scholars who had a hand in spreading the Call of Tawhd, and may he destine us to benefit from their works. (mn!)

CHAPTER 1

THE LETTERS PERTAINING TO THE DA'WAH OF SHAYKHUL ISLM MUHAMMAD BIN ABDIL WAHHB RAHIMAHULLH





Shaykhul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh said,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim. (Shaykhul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majmul Fatw, 13/235)

The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim. (Shaykhul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majmul Fatw, 13/235)

إِخْلَاصُ الدِّيْنِ وَاتِّبَاعُ السُّنَّةِ
Ikhls in the Dn and Following the Sunnah

Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb -may Allhu Tal have mercy upon him and forgive him- has another pamphlet as follows:

In the name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

To whomever this (letter of Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb) reaches amongst the Muslimn (pl. Muslim)

May Allh guide us and them to His true Dn (religion) and to following His Sratul Mustaqm (Straight Path). May He provide us and them with the Millah (religion) of al-Khallayn (His two close friends); Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam and Ibrhm Alayhis Salm.

Salmun Alaykum wa Rahmatullhi wa Baraktuhu!..

To proceed:

Allhu Tal said,

﴿وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ لِلَّهِ.﴾ [الأنفال: 39]
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allh) and until all of the Dn (religion) will be for Allh Alone.[1]

Allhu Tal also said,


﴿وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعاً وَلا تَفَرَّقُوا.﴾ [آل عمران: 103]
And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become disunited.[2]

Allhu Tal also said,


﴿شَرَعَ لَكُمْ مِنَ الدِّينِ مَا وَصَّى بِهِ نُوحاً.﴾
He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Nh

Until His statement in the yah,


﴿أَنْ أَقِيمُوا الدِّينَ وَلا تَتَفَرَّقُوا فِيهِ.﴾ [الشورى: 13]
to establish the religion and not be divided therein.[3][4]

It is Wjib (obligatory) upon every person who fears Allh and the Nr (the fire; i.e., Hell) to ponder upon the Kalm (Word) of his Rabb (Lord) whom created him.

Is it possible for any human being to obey Allh with something other than the Dn of the Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam? This is due to the statement of Allhu Tal,

﴿وَمَنْ يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَى وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّى.﴾ [النساء: 115]
And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers - We will give him what he has taken[5][6]

The religion of the Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam is Tawhd (monotheism), which is comprehending La Ilaha Illallh Muhammadun Raslullh (there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh and Muhammad is His messenger) and acting upon its necessities.

If it is said, All of the people utter it, then it will be said to him:

There are some amongst those who utter it and deem that it means, nothing creates other than Allh, nothing provides sustenance other than Allh or similar to it.

There are also some amongst them who do not comprehend its meaning.

There are some amongst them who do not act upon its necessities.

And there are some amongst them who do not understand its reality.

That which is stranger than this is the one who comprehends the meaning of Tawhd from one perspective but shows enmity towards it and its people from the other perspective.

That which is stranger than that is the one who loves it (inclines to Tawhd) and ascribes himself to its people but does not differentiate between its allies and enemies.

Oh, glory to Allh the Supreme from all defects! Can two opposing groups take place in the same Dn while all of them are on the truth? No by Allh!

﴿فَمَاذَا بَعْدَ الْحَقِّ إِلَّا الضَّلَالُ.﴾ [يونس: 32]
And what can be beyond truth except error?[7]

If it is said: Tawhd is beautiful, the Dn is true, except for Takfr (excommunication) and Qitl (fighting), it is said:

Act in accordance with Tawhd and the Dn of the Rasl Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam, and (then) the ruling of Takfr and Qitl will be lifted (from you). If the right of Tawhd (according to you) is affirming it and turning away from its rulings, let alone hating it and showing enmity towards it; then Wallhi (By Allh) this is Kufr (disbelief) itself and its clearest form.

Whoever has trouble to comprehend anything of this should read the Srah (the life stories) of Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam and his Ashb (companions) carefully.

Returning Allhs peace, mercy and blessings unto you as I did in he beginning!..

رسالة الشيخ ابن عبد الوهاب إلى البكبلي صاحب اليمن

A Letter of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb to al-Bakbal, the Ruler of Yemen

Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb has another pamphlet to the Ruler of Yemen.

In the name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

All praise is due to Allh, the One Who revealed the truth in His Book, made His Book an admonition for the possessors of intellect, and grants prosperity to His slaves -for whom He bestows blessings upon- to attain correctness to the address of the traverser.

May Allh send peace, salutations, and blessings upon Muhammad -His prophet, messenger, and the best being amongst those whom He created-, upon his family, followers, and all of his companions -as long as the stars rise and set and as long as raindrops pour down from the clouds.


From Abdul Azz bin Muhammad bin Sad and Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb,

To the brother in the way of Allh, Ahmad bin Muhammad Ibnul Adl al-Bakbal, may Allh save him from every evil, cause him to perform good deeds that stay with him for ever, save him from every calamity, multiply his good deeds, and forgive his bad deeds.

Salmun Alaykum wa Rahmatullhi wa Baraktuhu (May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allh be upon you).

To proceed:

Your letter reached us. Your questions therein, that which reached us later on concerning your state, and your questions concerning what we are upon and what we call people to rejoiced our hearts. So we wanted to rid your doubts with detailed answers and to explain the Rjih (preferred) opinion with its evidence. We beseech Allh Subhnahu wa Tal to make us and you pursue the best methodology and path.

As for what we are upon from the Dn (religion), then we are upon the Dn of Islm that which Allh said about,


﴿وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ.﴾

Whoever seeks a faith other than Islm, it will never be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.[1]

As for what we call people to, then we call them to at-Tawhd (monotheism), that which Allh said about it addressing His Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam,


﴿قُلْ هٰذِهِ سَبِيلِي أَدْعُو إِلَى اللهِ عَلَى بَصِيرَةٍ أَنَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنِي وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ.﴾

Say: This is my way; I invite to Allh with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allh; and I am not of those who associate others with Him.[2]

And the statement of Allhu Tal,


﴿وَأَنَّ الْمَسَاجِدَ لِلّٰهِ فَلَا تَدْعُوا مَعَ اللهِ أَحَدًا.﴾

And the Masjid (pl. Masjid; places of worship) are only for Allh, so pray (invoke/worship) not unto anyone along with Allh.[3]

As for what we prohibit people from, then we prohibit them from ash-Shirk (polytheism) which Allh said regarding,


﴿إِنَّهُ مَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّارُ.﴾

Indeed, he who associates others with Allh -Allh has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire.[4]

And the statement of Allhu Tal to His Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam in a manner of intensification even though he Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam and his brothers (i.e., the other prophets) are free from Shirk,


﴿وَلَقَدْ أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ وَإِلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ لَئِنْ أَشْرَكْتَ لَيَحْبَطَنَّ عَمَلُكَ وَلَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ ۞ بَلِ اللهَ فَاعْبُدْ وَكُنْ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِينَ.﴾
And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate (anything) with Allh, your deeds would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers. Rather, worship (only) Allh and be among the grateful.[5]

And there are many other verses (regarding the prohibition of ash-Shirk). We also fight against the people for this reason, as Allhu Tal said,


﴿وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ.﴾
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah

Meaning Shirk.


﴿وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ لِلّٰهِ.﴾

and until the Dn (religion) will be for Allh Alone.[6]

And the statement of Allhu Tal,


﴿فَاقْتُلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدْتُمُوهُمْ وَخُذُوهُمْ وَاحْصُرُوهُمْ وَاقْعُدُوا لَهُمْ كُلَّ مَرْصَدٍ فَإِنْ تَابُوا وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ فَخَلُّوا سَبِيلَهُمْ.﴾
Then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give Zakh, let them (go) on their way.[7]

And the statement of Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam,


أُمِرْتُ أَنْ أُقَاتِلَ النَّاسَ حَتَّى يَشْهَدُوا أَنْ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ اللهِ، وَيُقِيمُوا الصَّلاَةَ، وَيُؤْتُوا الزَّكَاةَ، فَإِذَا فَعَلُوا ذٰلِكَ عَصَمُوا مِنِّي دِمَاءَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُمْ إِلَّا بِحَقِّهَا، وَحِسَابُهُمْ عَلَى اللهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ.

I have been ordered (by Allh) to fight against the people until they testify that there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allh, offer the prayers, and give the obligatory charity. So when they perform this, then they save their lives and property from me; except for the rights of Islm, and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allh Azza wa Jalla.[8]

And the statement of Allhu Tal,


﴿فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّهُ لا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ.﴾

So know that there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh.[9]

Even though Allh Subhnahu named it as al-Urwatul Wuthq (the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks) and Kalimatut Taqw (the word of piety), the Tawght named it as Kalimatul Fujr (the word of wrongdoing). According to them, whoever says La Ilaha Illallh, he saves his property and life - even if he destroys the five pillars of Islm and rejects the six foundations of mn!

The reality of our Itiqd (creed) is that mn is affirmation with the heart, utterance with the tongue, and performance with the limbs. However, the Munfiqn (hypocrites) are in lowest depths of the Fire, even though they say La Ilaha Illallh, rather, even though they pray the Salh, pay the Zakh, and even though they fast, go to Hajj (pilgrimage), and make Jihd (fight for the sake of Allh). Even so, they are under the family of Firawn (Pharaoh) in lowest depths of the Fire.

Likewise, is what Allh Subhnahu mentioned of Balm (bin Br) and Allh exemplified him to a dog even though he had what he had of al-Ilm (knowledge) with him apart from knowing al-Ismul Adham (the Greatest name of Allh).


وعالم بعلمه لم يعملن ... معذب من قبل عباد الوثن

A scholar who does not act upon his knowledge,

Is punished before the idol worshipers are.[10]

When it comes to the things you have mentioned with regards to the reality of Ijtihd, we are Muqallidn (pl. Muqallid; imitators) of al-Kitb (the Book of Allh), as-Sunnah, the righteous of the Salaf of the Ummah (nation of Islm), and what is trusted from the statements of the Four Imms Ab Hanfah an-Numn bin Thbit, Mlik bin Anas, Muhammad bin Idrs (ash-Shfi), and Ahmad bin Hanbal Rahimahumullhu Tal.

When it comes to your question regarding the reality of mn, then it is affirmation. It increases with good deeds and decreases with their opposite. Allhu Tal said,


﴿وَيَزْدَادَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِيمَانًا.﴾

and those who have believed will increase in faith[11]

And also His statement,


﴿فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فَزَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَانًا وَهُمْ يَسْتَبْشِرُونَ.﴾

As for those who believed, it has increased them in faith, while they are rejoicing.[12]

And also the statement of Allhu Tal,


﴿إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ اللهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُهُ زَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَانًا.﴾

The believers are only those who, when Allh is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith.[13]

There are many similar yt (verses of the Qurn). Ash-Shaybn[14] Rahimahullh said,


وَإِيمَانُنَا قَوْلٌ وَفِعْلٌ وَنِيِّةٌ ... وَيَزْدَادُ بِالتَّقْوَى وَيَنْقُصُ بِالرَّدَى

Our mn is: statement, action, and Niyyah (intention),

It increases with Taqw (piety) and decrease with evil.

The statement of Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam,

اَلْإِيمَانُ بِضْعٌ وَسَبْعُونَ شُعْبَةً، أَعْلَاهَا قَوْلُ لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، وَأَدْنَاهَا إِمَاطَةُ الْأَذَى عَنِ الطَّرِيقِ.

mn (faith) has over seventy branches, the highest of which is the declaration of La Ilaha Illallh (there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship except- Allh), and the lowest of which is the removal of what is harmful from the path.[15]

And the statement of Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam,


فَإِنْ لَمْ يَسْتَطِعْ فَبِقَلْبِهِ، وَذٰلِكَ أَضْعَفُ الْإِيمَانِ.

And if he is not able, then he should change it with his heart. That is the weakest of mn.[16]

And the statement of Allhu Tal,


﴿وَمَنْ يُرِدْ فِيهِ بِإِلْحَادٍ بِظُلْمٍ نُذِقْهُ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ ۞ وَإِذْ بَوَّأْنَا لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ مَكَانَ الْبَيْتِ أَنْ لَا تُشْرِكْ بِي شَيْئًا وَطَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْقَائِمِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ.﴾

And (also) whoever intends (a deed) therein of deviation (in religion) by wrongdoing - We will make him taste of a painful punishment. And (remember) when We pointed out for Ibrhm the place of the House (of Allh) saying, Do not associate anything with Me as My partner, and purify My House for those who make Tawf (circumambulation around it), and those who perform Qiym (standing up in worship) and those who perform Ruk (bowing down) and Sujd (prostration).[17]

The Tawght whom Allh said regarding,


﴿اِتَّخَذُوا أَحْبَارَهُمْ وَرُهْبَانَهُمْ أَرْبَابًا مِنْ دُونِ اللهِ.﴾

They (the Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allh[18]

They said, The Fussq (wrongdoers) of Makkah fill al-Jannah (Paradise). However, as good deeds are multiplied, bad deeds are also multiplied (written in a multiplied form). But, the matter reversed, so much so that the affair became such that those women of the Hutaym Tribe and women from Egypt who are known to be prostitutes come in delegations on Yawmul Hajjil Akbar (the Day of the Great Hajj) and all of the aristocrats/ noblemen are renowned to openly commit Zin (fornication/adultery) with them, and those who perform homosexuality, the Ahlush Shirk (polytheists),  the Rfidhah, and enemies of Allh and His Rasl from every group are safe therein (Makkah). Likewise, those who supplicate to Ab Tlib are safe therein, while it is prohibited for those who actualize the Oneness of Allh and glorify Him to enter (Makkah) and if he were to take refuge in the Kabah, he would not be granted asylum, whereas Ab Tlib and Hutaym Tribes grant asylum to those who seek refuge in them.


﴿سُبْحَانَكَ هٰذَا بُهْتَانٌ عَظِيمٌ.﴾

Glory be to You (O Allh) this is a great lie.[19]

﴿وَمَا كَانُوا أَوْلِيَاءَهُ إِنْ أَوْلِيَاؤُهُ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقُونَ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ.﴾

And they were not (fit to be) its guardians. Its (true) guardians are not but the righteous, but most of them do not know.[20]

We have not come up with anything which contradicts the Naql (narrations) and is rejected by the Aql (intellect). However, they say but do not act upon it, whereas we say and we act upon it.


﴿كَبُرَ مَقْتًا عِنْدَ اللهِ أَنْ تَقُولُوا مَا لَا تَفْعَلُونَ.﴾

It is severely hateful in the sight of Allh that you say what you do not do.[21]

We fight against the idol worshipers as Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam fought against them. We also fight against those who abandon the Salh (prayer) and those who withhold the Zakh as the truthful of this nation Ab Bakr as-Siddq Radiyallhu Anh fought against them.

However, the affair is only as Waraqah bin Nawfal said, No one has ever brought something akin to what you brought except that he was treated with hostility, was persecuted, and was driven away!..

That which is little and suffices is better than that which is great and makes one heedless.

Was Salmu Alaykum wa Rahmatullhi wa Baraktuhu (May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allh be upon you).

رسالة إلى أهل المغرب في بيان التوحيد والشرك

A Pamphlet to the People of Maghrib Concerning the Clarification of Tawhd and Shirk

May Allh sanctify his soul and illuminate his grave, the Shaykh has another pamphlet to the people of Maghrib. Its text is as follows:
In the name of Allh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

All praise is due to Allh. We praise Him, seek His help, seek His forgiveness, and repent to Him. We seek refuge in Allh from the evil within ourselves and our evil deeds. Whoever Allh guides, there is no one who can led him astray, and whoever Allh leads astray, then there is no one who can guide him. I bear witness there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except Allh, He is One and He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Rasl (Messenger). Whoever obeys Allh and His Rasl is guided, and whoever disobeys Allh and His Rasl is misguided, he will harm nothing but his own self, and he cannot harm Allh in anyway. May Allh send abundant peace and blessings upon Muhammad, his family, and his companions (mn!)

To proceed:

Allhu Tal stated,


﴿قُلْ هٰذِهِ سَبِيلِي أَدْعُو إِلَى اللّٰهِ عَلَى بَصِيرَةٍ أَنَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنِي وَسُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ.﴾

Say: This is my way; I invite to Allh with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allh; and I am not of those who associate others with Him.[1]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّٰهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّٰهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ.﴾

Say, If you love Allh then follow me, Allh will love you and forgive you of your sins.[2]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿وَمَا آتَاكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانْتَهُوا.﴾

And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it).[3]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا.﴾

This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islm as religion.[4]

Allh Subhnahu informed that He perfected the Din and completed it on the tongue of His Rasl Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam.

We were commanded to abide by what had been revealed to us from our Rabb (Lord), abandoning the Bidah (innovation), separation and Ikhtilf (disagreement); thus Allhu Tal stated,


﴿اتَّبِعُوا مَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا مِنْ دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ قَلِيلًا مَا تَذَكَّرُونَ.﴾

Follow, (o mankind), what has been revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow other than Him any allies. Little do you remember.[5]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿وَأَنَّ هٰذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا فَاتَّبِعُوهُ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَنْ سَبِيلِهِ ذٰلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُمْ بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ.﴾

And, (moreover), this is My path, which is straight, so follow it; and do not follow (other) ways, for you will be separated from His way. This has He instructed you that you may become righteous.[6]

The Rasl Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam informed that his Ummah (nation) will copy the deeds of the previous generations and follow them very closely; span by span, and cubit by cubit (i.e., inch by inch).[7]

It is established in the Sahhayn (Two Sahh; Sahh of al-Bukhr and Sahh of Muslim) and in other than them that Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam said,


لَتَتْبَعُنَّ سَنَنَ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ حَذْو الْقُذَّة بِالْقُذَّةِ حَتَّى لَوْ دَخَلُوا جُحْرَ ضَبٍّ لَدَخَلْتُمُوهُ‏‏‏.‏ قَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ الْيَهُودُ وَالنَّصَارَى قَالَ‏ فَمَنْ.

Surely, you will follow the ways of those nations who were before you in an exact identical manner, so much so that even if they entered a hole of a lizard, you would enter it. They said, O Rasulullh, Do you mean the Jews and the Christians? He said, Who else could it be?[8]

In another Hadth Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam informed that his Ummah will split into seventy-three sects and that all of them are in the Fire (Hellfire) except for one sect. They said, Who are they O Raslullh (Messenger of Allh)? He Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam said, Those who are upon what I and my Companions are upon today.[9]

When this is recognized, that which has become wide-spread of the calamities from the newly innovated matters will also be recognized in which the paramount of the calamities is; associating partners to Allh, Tawajjuh (inclining) to the dead, requesting help from them against the enemy, fulfilling the needs, resolving the hardship such that none other than Rabb (Lord) of the worlds and heavens have the power to do. Likewise, seeking nearness to them through vowing and slaughtering offerings, Istighthah (seeking aid) from them to eliminate distress and to bring on benefits and also other types of Ibdah (worship) which are not allowed to be directed to any other besides Allh. Directing anything from the types of Ibdah to other than Allh is the same as directing all types of Ibdah to other than Allh. This is because Allh Subhnahu is most distant from being associated partners amongst those whom are associated as partners. Allh will not accept a deed unless it is done sincerely. As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿فَاعْبُدِ اللّٰهَ مُخْلِصًا لَهُ الدِّينَ ۞ أَلَا لِلّٰهِ الدِّينُ الْخَالِصُ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَا إِلَى اللّٰهِ زُلْفَى إِنَّ اللّٰهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِي مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ إِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ.﴾

So worship Allh making your submission exclusive for Him. Surely, the religion is for Allh only. And those who take Awliy (pl. Wal; saints) besides Him (say), We only worship them that they may bring us near to Allh. Verily, Allh will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allh does not guide he who is a disbelieving liar.[10]

Allh Subhnahu informed that He is not pleased with the Dn that is not sincerely for Him. And He informed that the Mushrikn (pl., Mushrik; idol worshipers/polytheists) make Du to the angels, the prophets and the righteous so that they may bring them nearer to Allh, and become intercessors for them in His presence. In addition, He informed that He will not guide the disbelieving liars. He denied them concerning this claim and their Kufr. Thus Allh stated,


﴿إِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ.﴾

Truly, Allh does not guide he who is a disbelieving liar.[11]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللّٰهِ مَا لَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلَا يَنْفَعُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ هٰؤُلَاءِ شُفَعَاؤُنَا عِنْدَ اللّٰهِ قُلْ أَتُنَبِّئُونَ اللّٰهَ بِمَا لَا يَعْلَمُ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ.﴾

And they worship other than Allh that which neither harms them nor benefits them, and they say, These are our intercessors with Allh Say, Do you inform Allh of something He does not know in the heavens or on the earth? Exalted is He and high above what they associate with Him.[12]

Allh thus informed that whoever takes intermediaries between himself and Allh requesting intercession, has worshipped them and associated them as partners (to Allh). This is because intercession in its entirety belongs exclusively to Allh. As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿قُلْ لِلّٰهِ الشَّفَاعَةُ جَمِيعًا.﴾

Say, To Allh belongs (the right to allow) intercession entirely.[13]

No one can intercede in His presence without His permit. As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ.﴾

Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission?[14]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿يَوْمَئِذٍ لَا تَنْفَعُ الشَّفَاعَةُ إِلَّا مَنْ أَذِنَ لَهُ الرَّحْمٰنُ وَرَضِيَ لَهُ قَوْلًا.﴾

That Day, no intercession will benefit except (that of) one to whom ar-Rahmn (the Most Gracious) has given permission and has accepted his word.[15]

Allh Subhnahu is not pleased with anything but Tawhd. As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿وَلَا يَشْفَعُونَ إِلَّا لِمَنِ ارْتَضَى.﴾

And they cannot intercede except for him with whom He is pleased.[16]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿قُلِ ادْعُوا الَّذِينَ زَعَمْتُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللّٰهِ لَا يَمْلِكُونَ مِثْقَالَ ذَرَّةٍ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَلَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَمَا لَهُمْ فِيهِمَا مِنْ شِرْكٍ وَمَا لَهُ مِنْهُمْ مِنْ ظَهِيرٍ ۞ وَلَا تَنْفَعُ الشَّفَاعَةُ عِنْدَهُ إِلَّا لِمَنْ أَذِنَ لَهُ.﴾

Say. Call upon those whom you claim (to be your gods) beside Allh. They do not possess (anything) even to the measure of a particle, neither in the heavens nor in the earth. They have no contribution at all in either of the two, nor is any of them a helper for Him (Allh). And intercession does not benefit with Him except for one whom He permits.[17]

So Shafah (intercession) is Haqq (truth), however it cannot be requested from anyone in this Dunya (worldly life) except Allhu Tal. As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿وَأَنَّ الْمَسَاجِدَ لِلّٰهِ فَلَا تَدْعُوا مَعَ اللّٰهِ أَحَدًا.﴾

And the Masjid (pl. Masjid; places of worship) are only for Allh, so pray (invoke/worship) not unto anyone along with Allh.[18]

And Allhu Tal stated,


﴿وَلَا تَدْعُ مِنْ دُونِ اللّٰهِ مَا لَا يَنْفَعُكَ وَلَا يَضُرُّكَ فَإِنْ فَعَلْتَ فَإِنَّكَ إِذًا مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ.﴾

And do not invoke besides Allh that which neither benefits you nor harms you, for if you did, then indeed you would be of the Dhlimn (pl. Dhlim; wrongdoers).[19]

When the Rasl Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam, is the Sayyidush Shufa (leader of the intercessors), and the owner of al-Maqmul Mahmd (magnanimous position), and while dam Alayhis Salm and others under him in rank are under his banner, and even Raslullh cannot intercede without the permit of Allh, and he will not intercede in the beginning rather he will come and fall in Sujd (prostration) and he will praise Allh in a manner that Allh taught him and he will be told, (O Muhammad!) Raise your head. Say, and you will be heard; ask, and your request will be granted; intercede, and your intercession will be granted. Then he will be assigned a degree and thereupon they will be entered into Jannah.[20] (If this is the condition of our Prophet), what would be the condition of the other Anbiy (prophets) and Awliy (friends of Allh; His righteous slaves)?

Concerning that we mentioned, no one from amongst the scholars of the Muslimn (pl. Muslim) has opposed it. Rather, as-Salafus Slihn (the Righteous Predecessors) amongst the Sahbah (companions) and the Tbin (those who follow them) and al-Aimmatul Arbaah (the Four Imms) and other than them who followed their path and proceeded along the lines of their Manhaj made Ijm (consensus) upon it.

When it comes to what has emanated from requesting intercession from the Anbiy and Awliy after they have died, revering their graves by building domes and lighting over them (i.e., the graves), and performing Salh (prayer) by them, making them places of festivities, appointing custodians, and offering vows to them, all of these are from the newly innovated matters which the Nab Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam informed would occur and cautioned from. As it is narrated in the Hadth that he Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam stated,


لا تقوم الساعة، حتى يلحق حي من أمتي بالمشركين، وحتى تعبد فئام من أمتي الأوثان.

The Hour will not be established until a tribe from my Ummah joins the Mushrikn (pl. Mushrik; polytheists) and until large groups from my Ummah worship idols.[21]

Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam is the one who safeguarded Tawhd with great protection and blocked all paths leading to Shirk and prohibited the plastering of the graves and constructing/building on it. As it is established in Sahh Muslim in the Hadith of Jbir Radiyallhu Anh.

It is also established in Sahh Muslim that Raslullh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam delegated Al bin Ab Tlib Radiyallhu Anh and commanded him that he should not leave an image without obliterating it, or a high grave without leveling it.[22]

For this reason, several scholars said it is Wjib (obligatory) to demolish the domes that were built upon the graves, since they were constructed upon disobeying the Rasl Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam.

Therefore, this matter (having Ikhls in Ibdah to Allh alone and demolishing domes built upon graves) necessitated an Ikhtilf (disagreement) between us and the people, so much so that it came to the point where they declared Takfr upon us, fought us, and claimed our blood permissible to shed and our wealth permissible to take. This continued until Allh helped us over them and gave us victory over them.

This is what we call people to and what we fight them for, after we establish the Hujjah (evidence) to them from the Book of Allh (the Qurn), the Sunnah of His Rasl, and the Ijm of the righteous Salaf from amongst the Aimmah (pl. of Imm) who were followed. This is because of the statement of Allh Subhnahu wa Tal,


﴿وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ لِلّٰهِ.﴾

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allh) and until all of the Dn (religion) will be for Allh Alone.[23]

(Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb Rahimahullh then said,)


فمن لم يجب الدعوة بالحجة والبيان، قاتلناه بالسيف والسنان.

Whomever does not accept our Dawah (call) with the Hujjah and al-Bayn (declaration), then we fight them by sword and spear.

 As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ النَّاسُ بِالْقِسْطِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا الْحَدِيدَ فِيهِ بَأْسٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللّٰهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ وَرُسُلَهُ بِالْغَيْبِ إِنَّ اللّٰهَ قَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ.﴾

We have already sent Our messengers with clear evidences and sent down with them the Scripture and the balance that the people may maintain (their affairs) in justice. And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people, and so that Allah may make evident those who support Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed, Allh is Powerful and Exalted in Might.[24]

We call the people to establish the Salh (daily prayers) with congregation in a fashion that is prescribed, giving the Zakh (alms), fasting during the Month of Ramadhn, and pilgrimage to the Sacred House of Allh (the Kabah). We also enjoin what is right and forbid from evil. As Allhu Tal stated,


﴿الَّذِينَ إِنْ مَكَّنَّاهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ وَأَمَرُوا بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْا عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَلِلّٰهِ عَاقِبَةُ الْأُمُورِ.﴾

(And they are) those who, if We give them authority in the land, establish prayer and give Zakh and enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. And to Allh belongs the outcome of (all) matters.[25]

Therefore, this is what we believe in and what we adopt as a religion in the sight of Allh. So, whoever acts with this is our Muslim brother. Whatever is in his favor is in ours, and whatever is against him, is against us.

We also believe that the Ummah (nation) who adhered to the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam will not gather upon misguidance and there will never cease to exist a group from his Ummah upon the truth, aided, that will never be harmed by those who forsake them nor those who oppose them, until the command of Allh comes while they are upon this.

May Allh send peace upon Muhammad. (mn!)
