Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawtharee states:

“I can’t of course reach the level of Imaam [Muhammad] Zaahid al-Kawtharee, but by using his name, Allaah might say on the day of Qiyaamah: ‘Hold on to him and enter Jannah”

And this Zaahid al-Kawtharee is renowned innovator and the one who curses the great Imaams such as Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibnul-Qayyim and Ash-Shawkaanee.

Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawtharee also delivers fatawa calling to istighaathah (seeking rescue) and isti’aanah (seeking assistance) from the dead in their graves. And this is well documented on the Soofee websites.

Beware of Imran Nazar Hosein, the Sufi

Bilal Philips lecture program in Malaysia, July 2001:

“Programme for fundraising dinners in July 2001 mentioning both Imran N Hosein from New York and Bilal Philips from UAE for a “Hotel Qur’an Project”: *

This is a Malaysian web site – Saba is the name of one of the Malaysian states/districts. All the locations Johor Bharu, Melaka, Subang Jaya, Selangor are in Malaysia. Click on the names to get a short biography. So for Imran N Hossein, we get:



Sheikh Imran Nazar Hosein was a former diplomat of Trinidad and Tobago. He is presently the Imam of Masjid Dar al-Qur’an in Long Island, New York. He studied Islam under the guidance of the outstanding Islamic Scholar and Sufi Sheikh, Maulana Dr. Muhammad Fadlur Rahman Ansari, at the Institute of Islamic Studies in Pakistan. He also studied philosophy at the University of Karachi and International Relations at the University of West Indies and the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. His published works include, among others, The Religion of Abraham and the State of Israel, The Prohibition of Riba in the Qur’an and Sunnah, The Caliphate, the Hejaz and the Saudi Wahhabi Nation-State.”

Our noble Salafi brother (reliable in his narrating), Abdur-Rahmaan Al-Fransee, who lives in Malaysia states:

“The Imran N Hosein who came to Malaysia and delivered lectures with Bilal Philips in July 2001 is the Soofee now living in New York, born in Trinidad, author of the books ‘One Jama’at One Ameer’ and ‘The Saudi-Wahabi Nation State’… It is not the first time he came to Malaysia. I am 100% sure that the Imran N Hosein who came is the Soofee guy. How is that ? Coz he also went to Singapore (nearby Malaysia) and a Salafi brother over there mentioned that this Soofee came again to Singapore. I myself went several times to Singapore, a city of Tassawuf and grave-worship, and his books are easily found in the ‘Islamic’ bookshops. Another Singaporean Salafi brother – who was in Malaysia in July 2001 and has spent 7 months in the camp of Sh. Muqbil – also indicated to me that this guy was the Soofee one. Also on the posters for the Malaysian tour, it was indicated that he was from New York. Finally, his photo on the posters matched the photo on the back cover of his book ‘One Jama’at One Ameer’ (I have this book at home).”

Imran Hosein states: “The Sufi methodology recognizes insight, recognizes the capacity to see with nur (light) and therefore provide a new explanation. That’s a Sufi methodology, and I got that from my teacher who was a Sufi sheikh.” (video: 2012 Imran Hosein – Sufi, Salafi and the End of Time)

He also states, “..that is tasawwuf, and that is the highest stage of religion. Personally I wish the word Sufism had never been invented by life would have been easier.”   (video: 2012 Imran Hosein – Sufi, Salafi and the End of Time)

Imran states: “The Sufi methodology recognizes insight, recognizes the capacity to see with nur (light) and therefore provide a new explanation. That’s a Sufi methodology, and I got that from my teacher who was a Sufi sheikh.” (video: 2012 Imran Hosein – Sufi, Salafi and the End of Time)

He said: “We say to the Salafi, and we’ve been saying it for all this time, all these months in our lectures that no brother you’re wrong. There are verses from the Quran that could not be understood. Not by the Aslaaf. An Nabi Muhammad alaihe salaam did not provide the explanation, and today we are the ones that have to use knowledge and insight to recognize what Allah is saying. And when we provide that interpretation of the Quran notice my brother salafi that the overwhelming majority of people are accepting our interpretation as correct.” (video: 2012 Imran Hosein – Sufi, Salafi and the End of Time)

He said: “Al-Ihsan is to worship Allah, and to serve Allah as though you’re seeing Him with the eye of your heart. (Quotes the sentence in Arabic) if you have not reached that stage as of yet were you can see with the internal eye and worship Him, then at least this, you should recognize that He is seeing you. And so the heart can see, but the heart can only see when there is faith, and the heart can see only when there is nur in the heart. (video: 2012 Imran Hosein – Sufi, Salafi and the End of Time)

Did al-Ghazali Come Back to the Manhaj of the Salaf? – Shaykh Al-Albaani [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]

Did Abu Haamid al-Ghazali Come Back to the Manhaj of the Salaf?
Shaykh Muhammad Nasiruddin al-Albaani (raheemahuallaah)
Taken from: Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 13.

Video Courtesy: Eesa ibn Roy

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“If we assume that someone narrated the view of the salaf but what he narrated is far removed from what the view of the salaf actually is, then he has little knowledge of the view of the salaf, such as Abu’l-Ma’aali, Abu Haamid al-Ghazzaali, Ibn al-Khateeb and the like, who did not have enough knowledge of hadeeth to qualify them as ordinary scholars of hadeeth, let alone as prominent scholars in that field. For none of these people had any knowledge of al-Bukhaari and Muslim and their ahaadeeth, apart from what they heard, which is similar to the situation of the ordinary Muslim, who cannot distinguish between a hadeeth which is regarded as saheeh and mutawaatir according to the scholars of hadeeth, and a hadeeth which is fabricated and false. Their books bear witness to that, for they contain strange things and most of these scholars of ‘ilm al-kalaam and Sufis who have drifted away from the path of the salaf admit that, either at the time of death or before death. There are many such well-known stories. This Abu Haamid al-Ghazzaali, despite his brilliance, his devotion to Allaah, his knowledge of kalaam and philosophy, his asceticism and spiritual practices and his Sufism, ended up in a state of confusion and resorted to the path of those who claim to find out things through dreams and spiritual methods. (Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, part 4, p. 71)

Ibn Arabi On the Scale Of Ahlus Sunnah

Ibn Arabi On the Scale Of Ahlus Sunnah

click the above for Urdu audio link

It’s well-known fact that both Barailwees and Deobandis/Tablighi Jamaat consider Ibn Arabi to be “al-Shaykh al-Akbar” (Great Shaykh), and they promote his deviant thoughts and defend his falsehood.

We thought it would be beneficial to expose some of the serious errors committed by this individual (Ibn Arabi) in the name of Islam and the fatawaa (verdicts) of Noble Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah regarding him.

Ibn Arabi wrote many books among them is Fusus al-Hikam, he said in the introduction of this book that..he got that book from the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). In the same book he accused Prophet Noah (alaihis salaamof being ignorant of the proper way to conveying the message. He said ..bani israil did not committed Shirk by worshiping the golden calf in the absence of Musa (alaihis salaam) as according to Ibn Arabi, Allaah manifested Himself in the form of the Calf. Further, He declared pharaoh to be a believer (Muslim).

There are many more blunders made by this individual, who is high respected till date by millions of Sufis worldwide.  They not all respect him rather defend his above believes and try to find excuse for him.

Now, let see the fatawaa (verdicts) of Noble Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah regarding Ibn Arabi :

Imaam Haafidh Ibn Hajr (d. 852 H) said, “I asked my Shaykh Siraaj ud deen al-Balqayaanee about Ibn Arabi and he replied quickly he (Ibn Arabi) is kaafir (disbeliever)”  refer : Leesaan ul-Meezaan (4/319)

Imaam Haafidh Ibn Daqeeq al-Eed asked Abu Muhammad Izz ud deen Abdul Azeez bin Abdus Salaam as-Silmee ad-Damashqee (d. 660 H) about Ibn Arabi and he replied, “Dirty, liar and far from the truth, .. refer : al-Wafaa Bal-Wafyaat (4/125)

Imaam Abu Hayyaan Muhammad bin Yoosuf Andaloosee (d. 745 H) said, “From the heretics who affirm unification and unity of existence are…… Ibn Arabi”  refer : Tafseer Bahr al-Muheet (3/464-465)

Imaam Haafidh Ibn Katheer (d. 774 H) said, “and the book which is named Fusus al-Hikam contains many things which indicate clear kufr (disbelief).” refer : Bidaayah WanNihaayah (13/167)

Imaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728 H) wrote, “..however a group from amongst the heretics (is) like the author of Fusus al-Hikam Ibn Arabi and others like him who are heretics…”  refer : Majmoo’a Fataawa (11/385)

Qadhee Taqee ud deen Alee bin Abdul Kaafee as-Subkee  (d. 756 H) said, “Whoever is from amongst the later sufi’s like Ibn Arabi and others then they are ignorant and misguided and they outside the way of Islam.” refer : Sharh Minhaaj in the Chapter of al-Wasayyah

Shamsuddeen Muhammad al-Eaizree wrote about Fusus al-Hikam in his book  “The scholars says whatever is in it, then all of it is disbelief and everything in it is based on the belief of unification.” refer : al-Fatawaa al-Muntashirah

Imaam Ibn Khaldoon (d. 732 H) said “Among these Sufis are: Ibn ‘Arabi, Ibn Saba’een, Ibn Barrajaan and their followers who follow their path and their religion. They have many books in circulation that are filled with blatant kufr and repugnant bid’ahs, trying to interpret clear texts in very far-fetched and repugnant ways, such that the reader is astounded that anyone could attribute such things to Islam.” refer : Aqeedah Ibn ‘Arabi wa Hayaatuhu

Note :

The deviant teachings of Ibn Arabi are mentioned in Fazael-e- Tabligh (Fazael-e-Amal), Chapter 7, “Keeping company with the Righteous”, with regard to the Ayah of the Quran, “O those who believe! Fear Allah, and be with the truthful (faithful) people!”


The commentators [scholars of Tafsir] have written that by ‘truthful’ are meant the mystics [sufis] and the true lovers of Allah, for whoever attaches himself to them and listens to their sermons, he attains very high standards of spirituality.

Shaykh Akbar [Ibn Arabi] has written: “You cannot get rid of the evil wishes of yourself, though you may strive for it for your whole life unless your desires are subjected to the commandments of Allah and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet ( sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam ). So, when you find a true lover of Allah, serve him well and follow his instructions as though you have no will of your own; obey him in all your spiritual, religious and personal matters. even those concerning your occupation, so that he may lead you to the right path and take you nearer to Allah. ” Unquote.

We ask the Tablighi Jamaat and Deobandis to give us the names and references of those [scholars of Tafsir] commentators who “have written that by ‘truthful’ are meant the mystics [sufis]??

Further, for an individual to serve and follow another individual (who is not a prophet) to such a extent that the former has no will of his own left and obey all theinstructions of the latter in spiritual, religious and personal matters is not correct.This is because a believer is commanded by Allaah to unconditionally believe, obey, and follow only Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). No one else has the right to be followed or be asked to be followed unconditionally!

In conclusion, the correct methodology of seeking knowledge is through the Noble Quran, the authentic Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in accordance with the understanding of the Salaf-us-Saliheen.  Anything else is going astray.

The Soofeeyah Relieve themselves of Worship

March 28, 2012 1 comment

The Soofeeyah Relieve themselves of Worship
Statements from the People of Knowledge
Compiled and translated By Abbas Abu Yahya @ FollowingTheSunnah Blog

1- ‘Alee bin Ahmad bin Sa’eed bin Hazm (d.456 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said:

‘A group from the Soofeeyah claimed that there is from amongst the ‘Aawleeyah (Friends of Allaah) he who is better than all the Prophets and Messengers.

These Soofeeyah said: Whoever reaches the maximum limit of al-Walayaa (the maximum limit of being religious) then he is relieved of all the Sharia’, from prayer, fasting, Zakah and other acts of worship.  And that all Haraam things become Halaal for him, from Zina and drinking alcohol and other things.’

[‘al-Fassal’ by Ibn Hazm (3/226), taken from introduction to ‘Ijteema al-Jayoosh al-Islaamee’ by Ibn al-Qayyim p.141]

2- Ibn al-Jawzi (d. 597 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said:

‘Iblees (Shaytaan) deceived a group of the Soofeeyah, from them were those who secluded themselves in a mountain, like monks. Spending the night alone, and reach the morning alone, so they would miss the Jumma’ prayer and the congregational prayer and mixing with the people of knowledge.’

[‘Talbees Iblees’ by Ibn al-Jawzi p.307, ‘Ijteema al-Jayoosh al-Islaamee’ by Ibn al-Qayyim p.142]

3- Shamsuddeen Muhammad bin Abee Bakr Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751) -Rahimullaah- said:

‘….so whoever does not hold the opinion that establishing the obligatory acts of worship is compulsory and he believes that he will achieve a state whereby he is relieved of worship, then he is a disbeliever detached from the religion.’

[‘Madarij Salikeen’ by Ibn al-Qayyim (3/113), ‘Ijteema al-Jayoosh al-Islaamee’ by Ibn al-Qayyim p.142]

4- Shamsuddeen Muhammad bin Abee Bakr Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751)-Rahimullaah quoted the hadeeth:

[From Anas bin Malik –RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said: ‘A group of three people came to the houses of the Prophet’s wives asking about the Prophet’s worship.  When they were informed about it, they regarded their own as insignificant and said: ‘Where are we compared to the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam? Indeed Allaah has forgiven him his past and future sins.’

One of them said: As for me then I will pray all night.

The other one said: I will fast continuously and not open my fast.

The last one said: I will keep away from women and never marry.

When the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- came he said: Are you those who said such-and-such. Then I swear by Allaah that indeed I am the most fearful of Allaah from amongst you and the one who has the most Taqwa of Him.  However, I fast and open my fast, I pray and I sleep and I marry women.  So whosoever does not desire my Sunnah is not of me.’ Collected by Bukhari]

Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751) -Rahimullaah- said about the preceding hadeeth: ‘The Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- freed himself from those who turned away from his Sunnah, and worshipping Allaah. Those who leave that which Allaah allowed for His worshippers from the good things of the world by not desiring them, with the belief that keeping away from them is worshipping Allaah, so this person does not distinguish between what is for him and what is against him.’

[‘Madarij Salikeen’ by Ibn al-Qayyim (1/93-94)]
