Al-Mawdoodee and his Denial of the Dajjaal
Jamaal bin Fareehaan Al-Haarithee
Al-Ajwibat-ul-Mufeedah ‘an As’ilat-il-Manaahij-il-Jadeedah (pg. 92-94) [2nd Edition]
Al-Ibaanah (dot) com the site is down now, baarak Allaahu feekum.
He said in his book Rasaa’il wa Masaa’il (pg. 57, 1351H Edition):
“The Messenger of Allaah used to think that the Dajjaal would appear during his time or close to his time. However, 1350 years have passed on this speculation (from the Prophet), many long centuries, and still the Dajjaal has not appeared. So this proves that his (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) speculation was not correct!!” In the 1362H edition of the book, he added to this, saying: “However, 1350 years have passed …and still the Dajjaal has not appeared. So this is the reality.”
This is a clear rejection of the advent of the Dajjaal, for which there are many authentic ahaadeeth reported informing of his coming.
He also said (pg. 55):
“It is confirmed that everything that has been reported in his ahaadeeth concerning the Dajjaal was just the opinion and estimation of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and that he had doubts over this issue.”
Is this not a clear rejection of the Dajjaal and a denial of the reports of the Messenger about whom Allaah said:
“And he does not speak from his own desire, rather it is revelation that is revealed to him.” [Surah An-Najm: 3-4]
He also says in his book Arba’atu Mustalahaat-ul-Qur’aan al-Asaasiyah (pg. 156):
“Allaah commanded the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in Surah An-Nasr to ask his Lord’s forgiveness for what occurred from him from deficiencies and shortcomings with regard to fulfilling the obligations – i.e. the obligations of prophethood.”
We seek Allaah’s refuge from such a lie!! Is it not sufficient for him that Allaah described His Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) with the characteristic of servitude (‘uboodiyyah), which is the most perfect of human characteristics? He described him with this attribute (i.e. slave of Allaah) in many verses throughout His Book. Where is he with respect to the Prophet’s statement in the hadeeth about the three people that asked about his (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) worship – and it is as if he is replying to this issue – in which he (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “As for me, then I am the most dutiful to Allaah amongst you”?

Sufism is not from Islam
Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafithahuAllah)
Translated by Rasheed ibn Estes ibn Estes Barbee
Presented to you by Markaz Tawheed was-Sunnah in Durham, NC
What is the ruling in Islam concerning Sufism?
Sufism, there is no Sufism in Islam, this is an innovation. Sufism is an innovation, it is not from Islam.
Thus it is upon those who have fallen into Sufism to repent to Allah the Exalted.
And it is upon them to return to the Sunnah.
And it is upon them to return to that which the pious predecessors were upon from uprightness and firmness upon the Deen of Allah and following the Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah are upon him, and following the rightly guided successors.
This is the pure unadulterated methodology.
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings are upon him said:
This nation will divide into seventy three sects all of them will be in the fire except one. They said: Who are they oh Messenger of Allah? He replied: Those who are upon what I and my companions are upon.
Thus there is no safety and security except by following the Minhaj of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings are upon, him and his companions.
And Sufism is not from the Minhaj of the Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah are upon him, and it is not from the Minhaj of his companions, and it is not from the Minhaj of the virtuous generations; rather it is something newly invented in Islam.
And it (Sufism) contains a great deal of deviations; some of which contains grave worship and shirk with Allah the Exalted and belief in the dead.
Thus Sufism also contains polytheism.
Rafidhah [shia] are not our brothers, rather the brothers of Shaytan | al-Fawzan
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.
