Shaykh Zayd (may Allah preserve him) said:
These Houthis who are present today, they are nothing more than Khawaarij and Raafidah. They brought together two destructive sects. From them are the Raafidah and from them are the Khawaarij. For this reason they harm the Muslims with the most severe harm, without any justification or validation. Nothing appears from them except harm upon the Muslims, and hindering Islam and the Muslims.
They preferred that the battle field would be the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; the place where Allah the Blessed and Exalted has given success to the rulers, scholars and people. He gave them success to the correct sound Aqeedah and sound methodology, and success to establish the rights of Allah and the laws of Allah.
All of this enrages them. Thus they mobilized their military campaign, but Allah repelled their plot back down their throats. And He caused their war preparation and organization to become annihilation upon them.
And like this; the transgressor will not be successful over the one who does not transgress anyone. It is not known that the Kingdom of Saudi, by way of its’ rulers, scholars, or people, transgress anyone. They do not transgress countries or groups, but rather they are transgressed upon and they are patient until the confrontation cease to exist.
So I ask Allah the Mighty and Majestic to assist the truth and its’ people and that He humiliate the transgressors those who wish to destroy Islam and bring harm to the Muslims.

Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee calls people of Yemen to Jihaad against Raafidah (Shee’ah) Houthis
The following is a summary translation of some of the major points of Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee (hafidhahullaah) taken from sahab.net. Written on the 3rd of Muharram, 1433
After beginning with praise of Allah and prayers upon our Messenger Shaykh Muhammadbin Haadee said:
“Verily from that which sadness us and hurts us o brothers and sons, is what we have heard concerning what has befallen our brothers from Ahlus Sunnah, our brothers in faith, in Damaj As Sunnah in the land of Yemen. From the Raafidah Houthis whoare the enemies of Allaah and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and the enemies of the companions of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم, رضوان الله عليهم أجمعين.
They are the enemies of Ahlus Sunnah in every place and every time. And this is not strange coming from them, because for certainty, no calamity has befallen Islam or the Muslims except that the Raafidah assisted and joined forces with the enemies of Islam against the Muslims; and this is well known throughout history. And theone who looks at history will know that what I am saying is the truth.
This groupis called the Houthis by the people today, and they are Raafidah. We have heard, and we know from their statements that which proves their deviance, their filthy ‘Aqeedah, and their hatred for the Muslims. There is no doubt, if animosity is based on worldly affairs, then there is hope that it will go awayand be resolved. As for animosity for the Deen (religious matters) or based upon the Deen, then there is no hope that it will change regardless of how much time passes. The poet spoke the truth when he said:
Every animosity may become cordial ***Except for the animosity from your enemy in religion.
Thus, this group: their enmity for the people of Islam is clear, and deeply rooted since long ago. Therefore do not be surprised by their actions today, because in reality they wait for these opportunities to attack the people of Islam and the people of faith. Before, by the permission of Allaah the Exalted, they were prevented by the presence of a government, but now there is no government. They gained influence in the province of Sada while they attempted to establish agovernment that would be specifically for them, by them and no one who be allowed to participate. Thus those who remained in this province from Ahlus Sunnah would be at their mercy. And they know the impact and affect that Ahlus Sunnah has upon the people.
And they surely fear this Markaz (center of learning) that Allaah the Glorified and Exalted has brought by way of it, tremendous benefits, enlightenment, insight and vision by the hand of that Shaykh, the Caller, the Mujaahid, the one who patiently sought Allaah’s reward, Shaykh Muqbil Abu ‘Abdur Rahman Al Waadi’ee. May Allaah have mercy upon him, forgive him, be pleased with him, and enlighten his face in the gardens of paradise.
Since day one, when the foot of this man touched down in this land of his, he established the call to Allaah the Blessed and Exalted. And this enraged them (the Raafidah), but they were prevented – as we said before – due to the presence of a government. This is from the benefits of having a leader even if he persecutes and oppresses. The people will not rectify or establish their affairs without leaders, kings and rulers – even if they oppress; because by Allaah, the good that Allaah brings by way of them is more than their corruption.
[Translator's note: The Shaykh continued to explain the benefits of having a Muslim ruler and then he said...]
Therefore, surely it is obligatory upon all of Ahlus Sunnah in Yemen to rush to assist their brothers. Whoever has the ability to help, then do not delay! Assist them with your wealth and assist them physically if you are able, if you are notable to assist them physically then assist them with your wealth. And to leave them in this condition while it has reached the extent to what we have heardconcerning the news of our brothers in Damaj, I swear by Allaah this is a shameand a disgrace upon Ahlus Sunnah, and upon Yemen, and the military of theSunnah and the Qur`an in Yemen. It is a shame and disgrace if they do not torush to help their brothers; and it is obligatory upon them to help them.
[Translator's note: The Shaykh continued to incite Ahlus Sunnah in Yemen to rush to help our brothers in Damajwhile mentioning the disgrace in forsaking them; and then he said...]
And let them know without a doubt, that Damaj is us and we are Damaj against these filthy, grimy Raafidah. And enmity against them (Damaj) is enmity against us all. Thisis because they did not intend Damaj because it is Damaj, but rather they intended Damaj due to the Sunnah and the Islam within Damaj, the faith which spreads from it, and the Da’wah established there. Due to them correcting the Aqeedah of the people, enlightening the people to the worship of Allaah alone without partners, and clarifying the corrupted methodologies that oppose what the Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessings are upon him, and his companions were upon.
And from the vilest of methodologies is the methodology of the Raafidah – these Houthis Raafidah. The proof of that is their being supported by ‘Iran, and praised by ‘Iran, supported by Hezbollat in Lebanon and them supporting Hezbollat, Hezbollat praising them, and their praising of Hezbollat. (Translator’s note: The Shaykh calls them the party of the pagan god Al-Laat, instead of the party of Allaah) Thus, they do not help anyone except for those upon their same Deen.
Therefore if this is their help for those upon falsehood, then why is Ahlus Sunnah reluctant?! Why is Ahlus Sunnah delaying?! This is not permissible. Especially since the war has started and it has reached the level that we have heard concerning the killing of our brothers in Islam and faith, killing twenty-four of them. By ‘Asr prayer, they had prayed on twenty-one of those killed, and the blockade continues. This blockade has gone on for a long time, close to forty days or more. One grain does not enter Damaj and one chicken cannot come out. All of this is only intended to eradicate the people of Islam and faith. Is this not enough?! This is enough for the one who has a heart or gives ear while he is heedful.
Thus it is obligatory upon the people of Yemen to not hesitate; rather they should strive and rush. Let them know that the time to help their brothers is right now! They have to defend the Deen, because the intent (behind the attack) is the Deen, as I said before.”
Translator’s note: The Shaykh continued, and then concluded by making several du’aas for our brothers andsisters in Damaj, and making du’a against the criminal Raafidah.

By the Noble Scholars: The Mufti Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ali Shaykh, Shaykh Zaid Al Madhkhali, Shaykh Salih Fawzan, Shaykh Rabee Al Madhkhali
Question to the Mufti Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ali Shaykh:
Question: What do you say concerning the one who says: “Verily refutations against the people of innovations and misguidance, was not from the practice of the Salaf, and the books of refutations are not befitting to be distributed except between the students of knowledge and they should not be distributed to other than them?“
Answer: Refutations upon the people of innovations is from jihad in the cause of Allah, and protection for the legislation of Islam from having something attached to it that is not from it. Thus authoring the books, printing them, and distributing them is correct, and it is calling to the truth, and jihad in the cause of Allah.
Thus whoever presumes that printing the books and spreading the books that refute the innovators is an innovation, then he is in error; because Allah the Exalted said: Oh Prophet strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be severe against them. (Chapter 66 verse 9)
Therefore jihad is with the hand, the tongue, and wealth. From jihad with the tongue is to defend the legislation of Islam and to protect it from every fabrication from the doubts and falsehood; included in this is warning from innovation and calling to the truth.
For this reason Imam Ahmad and other than him produced books warning from the innovators. Imam Ahmad authored a treatise entitled “The refutation upon the hypocrites.” So he clarified their doubts and answered every doubt they came with. Al Bukari-may Allah have mercy upon him-authored his book “The actions of the servants are created”. And other than them from the Imams of Islam have authored refutations upon the innovators and rebutted their falsehood and established the arguments against them.
Also Shaykh of Islam (ibn Taymiyyah) authored refutations upon the rafidah in his well known book, “The methodology of the Prophetic Sunnah in demolishing the statements of the shia and the qadariya”, and he clarified the falsehood and misguided they are upon.
Question to Shaykh Zaid Al Madhkhali
Question: Oh noble Shaykh there is a statement that refutations between the people of knowledge distracts from seeking knowledge, so is this statement correct?
Answer: This doubt is false and from the deceptions placed upon the people and I don’t think this statement is circulating from a person who has any portion of knowledge, because the books of refutations are present, distributed, printed, and read since the first generations until our present time.
The one who reads the refutations of Imam Ahmad-may Allah have mercy upon him- upon the Jahmiyah and hypocrites and the refutations of Imam Ibn Taymiyyah and Imam Ibn Al Qayyim will find the bulk of their works contain refutations upon the people of deviance to include the Jews, Christians, the people of innovation such as the Jahmiyah, Mutazila, Asharees, Maturidiya, and Kulabiya. They contain refutations upon the people who say Allah is one with His creation, refutation upon the sufis and other than them which are too many to mention in this setting.
Therefore the books of refutations are jihad in the cause of Allah; rather ibn Al Qayyim considers refuting the people of innovations and desires greater than jihad on the battle field. This is because jihad on the battle field, you find that many of the people embark upon this kind of jihad, many people are courageous, scholars and those from the laymen.
As for jihad with knowledge and the tongue, by bringing the argument and evidence to the people of innovation, misguidance, and desires, no one embarks upon this; no one is suitable for this except for the firmly rooted scholars. Thus it becomes obvious that the people of knowledge have virtue over those who fight on the battle field.
Therefore: If this statement comes from an ignorant person it is incumbent upon him to learn, and if it comes from a person who claims to have knowledge then he is either a person with compound ignorance or a person of deception thus it becomes incumbent to warn against him; and Allah knows best.
Question to Shaykh Fawzan
Question: Do refutations upon the people of falsehood harden the hearts, because there are some people who distance us from the books of the people of knowledge that contain refutations upon the people of faslehood?
Answer: Leaving off refutations is what hardens the heart, because doubts will enter the hearts, thus they will harden. As for refuting them, and clarifying the truth then this is what softens the hearts and returns them to the truth.
Therefore do not pay attention to the likes of these false statements which originate from people who wish to promote falsehood and doubts without raising objects to it or refuting it; and they say this is freedom of opinion, this is another opinion. This is an opinion and this is another opinion meaning the religion will become opinions. The religion does not contain opinions it contains revelation from Allah the Exalted, revelation from the All Wise, Worthy of all praise.
Allah has not entrusted us to our opinions or intellects, rather He commanded us to follow the book and the Sunnah, to gain an understanding of them, to work by them, and to refute that which opposes them from the doubts and false statements. If it were not for the refutations upon the people of falsehood the truth would not be aided and the truth would not be clarified to the people.
But I say, and I continue to say, no one refutes these issues except the people of knowledge. As for the learner, the student of knowledge, and the one who pretends to have knowledge it is not permissible for him to refute these issues; because perhaps he will refute with ignorance consequently his refutation will be more evil than what he was refuting. Because the refutation not based upon knowledge; its evil becomes more the refutation.
Therefore I say, no one refutes except the people of knowledge, those firmly grounded in knowledge, those who refute with knowledge, arguments and evidence. As for those who are not firmly grounded in knowledge then they do not refute the doubts, because perhaps the refutation will be more corrupt than what is being refuted.
Question to Shaykh Rabee
Question: What do you say oh Sheik to the one who says too much talk about minhaj hardens the heart?
Answer: Meaning that a lot of talk about the minhaj and correcting it and studying it hardens the heart, but calling to myths, and innovations, and misguidance and to the ideas of the khawarij softens the heart—Masha Allah!!!
The dawa to the minhaj; calling to the book of Allah and to the Sunna of the Messenger peace and blessings are upon him, and what is contained in the book of Allah and the Sunna of the Messenger peace and blessing are upon him, from the belief system (aqeedah), and the acts of worship, and the actions, and correcting the minhaj is a great affair that must be done and there is a lot of misguidance concerning this minhaj.
And no matter how much the person was to speak about it, his efforts would be minuscule in relation to what is required in this affair. Now when we speak about the minhaj does it reach every Muslim?!!
But speech upon the methodology of Tabligh (Jamaat) or upon the methodology of the Muslim brotherhood, or the methodology of the people who are astray or the methodology of the people of bida, or myths, or deviated creeds and politics and socialism and ideological beliefs, this Masha Allah softens the heart!!!!
Is this a correct statement? This foolish statement is not able to stand up to the true Islamic minhaj, may Allah bless you.
