Beware! Of The Below Listed Individuals

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
وَأَنَّ هَٰذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا فَاتَّبِعُوهُ ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَن سَبِيلِهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُم بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

“And verily, this (i.e. Allah’s Commandments mentioned in the above two Verses 151 and 152) is my Straight Path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path. This He has ordained for you that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V.2:2).” 6:152


  إن هذا العلم دين ، فانظروا عمن تأخذوا دينكم

“This Knowledge is a Matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your deen from.” Imam Ibn Sereen refer : introduction of Sahih Muslim

Beware! Of the below listed Individuals who have for years been diluting and polluting the pure Salafi Manhaj (Methodology).

  • Abdurraheem Green
  • Abu Aaliyah Surkheel Sharif
  • Abu Eesa Niamatullah
  • Haitham al-Haddad
  • Muhammad Alshareef
  • Tawfique Chowdhury
  • Usama Hasan
  • Yasir Qadhi
  • Yaser Birjas
  • Mohammed Faqih
  • Waleed Basyouni

 These individuals are assumed by general people to be on the way of Salaf -Us- Saliheen, but in reality they are not on.

The above list of signed a pledge of Mutual Respect and Cooperation with deviant Ash’arees, Maatureedees Sufis such

  • Jihad Hashim Brown
  • Faraz Rabbani
  • Aisha Faleh Al-Thani
  • Abdallah Bin Bayyah
  • Fuad Nahdi
  • Hamza Yusuf
  • Ibrahim Osi-Efa
  • M. Afifi al-Akiti
  • Muhammad ibn Adam
  • Shamira Chothia Ahmed
  • Usama Canon
  • Yahya Rhodus

When Senior Salafi Scholars were informed about this pledge and those who participated in it, Scholars expressed their view in the below words:

Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree  may Allaah preserve him said,

This shows they don’t distinguish between the correct paths from the misguided ones so they melt together and the result is innovation for Ahlu Sunnah do not have different beliefs.”  “All of this is corrupt stemming from the false principle ‘al-Ma’dhira wa Ta’aawun’ – making excuses and cooperation with the misguided groups.”  “If he was to follow truly their way he (Yasir Qadhi) wouldn’t have signed the pledge with these Sufi’s and he would have been upright upon the Sunnah even if no one were to follow him.” “I seek refuge in Allaah, this is the speech of the ignorant and those that play games“. “He lies here, there is no differences in Aqeedah between Ahlu Sunnah rather they are in agreement with regards its fundamental principles.” “Ahlu sunnah are not happy with the innovators. This is the speech of the Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen.” “Mashaallaah, they don’t have taqwa they have misguidance.” “This is a way of going away from the topic and not adab al-ikhtilaaf. Ahlu Sunnah do not consider making agreements like this with the innovators as adab al-ikhtilaf.”

Shaykh `Alee Naasir Faqeehee (a lecturer at al-Masjid an-Nabawee and the Islaamic University of Madeenah, and Head of the Department of Knowledge Related Affairs at the King Fahd Qur.aan Printing Complex)

The Shaykh, may Allaah preserve him, mentioned a number of points which are worthy of reflecting upon – for all:

After reading it, the Shaykh began by stating that: “This is not the first, second, tenth or even hundredth time that an attempt such as this has been made. For a long time efforts have been made in order to produce such a formula, the only thing that differs is the method and the wordings. It should be known that achieving the objectives of such a pledge is impossible; it is like shooting a stray bullet that will never reach its target. How can (a pledge such as) this be possible, bringing together people of different theological backgrounds that are contradictory to each other?!”

The Shaykh described the basis for such a pledge as proceeding from the principle of “let us co-operate amongst ourselves in the issues that we agree upon, and excuse one another in the issues that we disagree upon”.

In support of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, the Shaykh iterated: “Just because some of the co-signers (of “The Pledge”) are graduates from the Islaamic University (of Madeenah) does not mean that the methodology of the University is at fault. Rather, the methodology of the University is correct, however, the University cannot guarantee that all the students who graduate from it are or will remain upon the same methodology“.

In reference to the claim that “The Pledge” is specific to issues pertaining to the West, the Shaykh vehemently rejected this by saying: “Their claim that this is a Western issue and that Major Scholars elsewhere do not need to be involved: We say to them that the same Islaam you have over there in the West is the same Islaam we have here. What is false and contradictory to Islaam over here is also false and contradictory to Islaam over there. Islaam is suitable for all times and places“.


Shaykh Muhammad ibn Haadee al Madkhalee commented with the following…

During these times that we live in, those who speak have become numerous; those who speak with knowledge, truth and adherence [to the Book and the Sunnah], those who speak with desires and evil intentions, and those who speak with ignorance. All three groups are present, and the callers to falsehood are more plentiful.

Do not be deceived that a caller to falsehood is praised, has degrees or a high status in the life of this world, because this is of no significance. What is of significance is whether his speech is in accordance to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, may the Salaat and Salaam be upon him, and what his righteous Caliphs and companions were upon – may Allaah be pleased with them all.

Amongst the callers to falsehood who have graduated from here, the Islaamic Univeristy of Madeenah, is Yasir Qadhi. I severely warn you against him, especially as Allaah the Glorified has exposed him after he wrote this document that has reached us and propagated it over the internet. He gathered with others and signed a pledge in which – from the beginning to the end – revolves around one point; dissolving Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah in the midst of the people of innovations, removing their character and extinguishing their identity.

Indeed this document that has reached us, that was signed by a number of people and propagated over the internet; it is falsehood, misguidance, injustice, oppression and ignorance [repeated 3 times]. It only serves the people of desires and is an injustice to Ahlus Sunnah. It is an obligation to be wary of it, to not listen to it, accommodate it, unite upon it and make excuses for it. All of this is in contradiction to the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah and what they are upon, those who are upon what the Messenger of Allaah and his companions, may Allaah be pleased with them, were upon.

He is calling to the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah, as he states himself, with the general understanding of term ‘Ahlus Sunnah’, meaning that all the other misguided groups are included in it, we seek refuge with Allaah from that, as we seek refuge with Allaah from this misguidance.

The evidence has been established upon him as he studied in the Islaamic University of Madeenah. I taught him in the faculty of Hadeeth, he once requested a sitting with me along with those who criticize him, so I agreed and informed him that I have no problem with that, and that was the last time I saw him. The point is that I never heard of him again until he entered the Masters program in ‘Aqeedah, and sadly, this is what is used by him and others to misguide a lot of people, saying that he is the student the scholars or that he graduated from the Islaamic University of Madeenah. But if this is the methodology that he is upon, the likes of this pledge that he and others have signed, by Allaah it would not benefit him if he graduated from within the Ka’bah! Because this is a false methodology, and being a student of such and such a Shaykh or studying at such and such a place does not justify falsehood, for those who taught him here have taught him the correct ‘Aqeedah, they didn’t teach him this falsehood.

 In any case, we ask Allaah for safety, as we ask him to cause the Knowledge that we gain to be beneficial for us as well as yourselves in the life of this world as well as the next… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttBZ-g6QShk&lr=1


When Imaam al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) was asked “The Muslims today have split up into factions and parties and Allaah, the Sublime and Exalted, has prohibited splitting up and differing. So amongst the Muslims today, this one is Salafi and this one is Ash’aree and this one is Sufi and this one is Maatureedee. The question is, is it not possible to overlook the walaa and baraa (the allegiance and enmity) in aqidah in order to unite the word for the purpose of confronting the enemies of Allaah and His Messenger.

He (rahimahullaah) said:


 إن هذا العلم دين ، فانظروا عمن تأخذوا دينكم

“This Knowledge is a Matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your deen from.” Imam Ibn Sereen refer : introduction of Sahih Muslim


 “O Allaah! Show us the truth as truth so that we may follow it, and show us falsehood as falsehood, so that we may abstain from it.” Ameen.
