Questions to the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād al-Badr (hafidhahullāh) corncerning the salafi Da`wah in Syria

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS[1]

Bismillāh, ir-Rahmān ir-Raheem

 

First Question:

“Our Shaykh, we have a da’wah Centre in Syria, Markaz Imām al-Albānī li’d-Da’wah wa’l-Irshād and it suffers from weak da’wah support event though it has good and consistent material support from some of the wealthy from a variety of sources due to some noble brothers. Our da’wah efforts are focused on classes for children, conferences for adults, printing and distributing the books of the people of knowledge such as al-Albānī, Bin Bāz, ’Uthaymeen and Fawzān. In these circumstances, the brothers from Jam’iyyat Ihyā ut-Turāth offered us da’wah support specifically and for our centre and charity generally, without any conditions except for arrangement and certification. They said: “the brothers from Jam’iyyat Ihyā ut-Turāth al-Islāmī admit that we have errors however we only want to co-operate with Salafis.” Due to these dealings with them, some brothers criticised us and some of them classified us and warned against us. What is your view on this?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

Those who criticise you should come with an alternative hen, what is their alternative? The brothers from Ihyā ut-Turāth have very good efforts, they spread a certain amount books for the students of knowledge around the world, and they have charitable efforts to help the Muslims. There is no problem in working with them even though they have errors.

 

Second Question:

“Our Shaykh, it has been spread on the internet and on WhatsApp groups in which are Syrian Salafi brothers, warnings and tabdee’ of some Shaykhs and people of knowledge such as: ’Abdul’Azeez ar-Rayyis, ’Abdullāh al-’Ubaylān, Mashhūr bin Hasan Āl Salmān, ’Ali al-Halabī, Ibrāheem ar-Ruhaylī, ’Abdul’Adheem Badawī, Sālim at-Taweel, ’AbdulMalik ar-Ramadānī. This has resulted in the youth classifying and boycotting each other even though the Salafis in Syria are small and their opposers from the Sūfī, Takfīrīs and Hizbīs many, all of whom plot against us and our situation is not hidden from you.”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

Do not be surprised by these affairs spreading into Syria for they have spread in Europe wherein the number of Muslims is very small indeed. Do not at all look at these matters and do not preoccupy yourselves with them and be warned of them, preoccupy yourselves with seeking knowledge and teaching people. if we were to warn against those [Shaykhs aforementioned], who would remain?

 

Question:

“Our Shaykh, who are the ’Ulama of this time?”

 

 

 Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

The ’Ulama whom we came across after 1400 AH were al-Albānī, Ibn Bāz and Ibn ’Uthaymeen, as for us then we are students of knowledge.

 

Question:

“Of those who are alive?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

Ask Shaykh Sālih Fawzān.

 

Question:

“What are the best Tafāseer for beginners?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

Tafseer Sa’dī, it is the only tafseer which can possibly be read with common people.

 

Question:

“Our Shaykh, what do you advise in terms of Usūl ul-Fiqh?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

Mudhakkirat Usūl ul-Fiqh by Shaykh al-Ameen ash-Shanqītī.

 

Question:

“Our Shaykh, and in regards to fiqh?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

The Fatāwā of Shaykh ul-Islām [Ibn Taymiyyah] and the Fatāwā of Shaykh Bin Bāz (rahimahumullāh).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Question:

“Our Shaykh, many of the common people and some of the students of knowledge listen to Abū Ishāq al-Huwaynī and some of them knew of Salafiyyah before via the audios of the Shaykh [Abū Ishāq] and some people still follow him on satellite channels, and he has lessons of admonishment and in the science of hadeeth. Some of the people of knowledge speak about him so are we to warn from him?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

No, do not warn from him and I am not aware of anything which deserves that he be criticised or warned from. If we are to warn from him who will remain? If he has any errors we warn from his errors.

 

Question:

“Shaykh, does this mean that he can be listened to and benefitted from?”

 

Answer from the Muhaddith of Madeenah, al-’Allāmah ’AbdulMuhsin al-’Abbād:

Yes, listen to him and benefit from him.
