Zulfiker Ibrahim`s Meeting with Sheikh Wasiullah in Mecca 19th Shawwaal 1433/06 september 2012


Points that were discussed:

Sheikh Wasiullah Abbas would like to congratulate Masjid-Quba, Leicester, for getting rid of the Takfeeris & Ikhwanees, and for opening the doors for the Salafee Dawah openly without being shy or ashamed about it unlike some of the other Masaajid in Leicester.

He would like to also express his gratitude to Abu Bakr Jama’s father, our elder, Jama’ and all those who were present with him at the meeting with MSL, may Allah unite us all under the banner of Salafiyyah.

He advises us all to fear Allah be sincere in calling to the Qur’an & Sunnah according to the understanding of the Salaf proceeding with seeking knowledge and then actions.

He advises the shoorah of MSL to be patient with one another always make excuses for your brother, if he slips or lacks in fulfilling his responsibility, do not bicker and argue with one another, don’t let the shaytaan come in between yourselves, you have a responsibility, fulfill it fearing Allah as an act of getting closer to Allah.

The following questions were asked by me to the sheikh.

1) O Noble Sheikh, what is your advice with regards to refuting the Barailwees & Deobandees on the manabir mentioning their deviant scholars by name?

Answer: The sheikh replied: refuting the Barailwees & Deobandees is an obligation upon the scholars and students of knowledge, starting with their shirk and deviancy in the Names & Attributes of Allah by being Maatureedee and  following the Greek and Indian philosophers, having deviancy in Al-Uloohiyah & Ar-Ruboobiyah by following Ibnu-Arabi and Mansoor Hallaj.

Then refuting their blind-following and fanatism of the Hanafee Madhab. So these issues must be refuted starting with the most important issues which is Aqeedah. So the Khateeb must refute them on the mimbar if there is need and I say he must take into account the benefit and harm the message may have depending on his congregation, so it is feasible to refute the Deobandees and Barailwees without mentioning their scholars if it will drive the blind followers away from the Salafee dawah because of their attachment to the personalities. However if there is no harm and there is a need to mention their names to alert the people it should be done. So the student of knowledge must refer to the scholars in these issues not the committee of the Masjid.

I (Zulfiker) added: should we adopt the manhaj of Imam Bukhari by saying: some people say?

The sheikh responded: Excellent my son!  Yes adopt the manhaj of Imam Bukhari in general and this is what we do in the haram and hope you do the same at the Prophet’s masjid!

2) My noble father, I witnessed something strange this year in England during Ramadan, those Masaajid who ascribe themselves to Salafiyyah, hold two congregations during the last ten nights, what is your opinion on this?

Sheikh Wasiullah replied:

We ask these people bring us evidence from the Sunnah for this action of yours for the two congregations in the last ten nights of Ramadan, as this is contrary to what the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)  has said, that the one who concludes with the Imam he will be rewarded for praying the whole night! Is this statement of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)  not sufficient for us? Is the Sunnah not sufficient? Can they bring forth evidence from the companions that they practiced this action?

I was asked the same question in Masjidul-Haraam, Makkah, and I gave the same response, bring your evidence from the Sunnah for this action. This is practiced in the two harams and we don’t agree with it, and many just follow and have started to practice this by blind-following the actions of the people of the two Harams, evidence is that which is from the Book of Allah& the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), according to how the companions understood it.

We ask our brothers in the two harams bring us evidence and if you do have evidence how will you reconcile with the statement of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), with regards to obtaining the whole nights reward if one concludes his prayer with the Imam.  The Salafee Masaajid should stop this practice by blindly following others and stick to the Sunnah.

3) Sheikh one of our young Salafee Brothers from Leicesteer, asks is doing the bayan (lecture)  before the khutbah on Friday a bidah?

Sheikh responded: Na’am it is a bidah without doubt according to my research.

4) My noble Father, I have been criticised by some people who claim to adhere to the Salafee Dawah in Leicester for refuting the Deobandees & Barailwees, concentrating on their Aqeedah. These people say that I am harsh and my methodology is too harsh and have gone to the extent of telling others. What do you say about this?

Sheikh responded: If you don’t refute the Barailwees & Deobandees what dawah will be left in Leicester? This is the way of the Messengers and Prophets calling to Tawheed and refuting the Shirk. These people are either ignorant or have a hidden agenda, may Allah guide them, do not pay attention to them and let the youth not be influenced by such baseless claims.

5) Sheikh is it true that your Sheikh, Allamah, Muhadeeth, Nadheer Ahmed Rahmani wrote a refutation with regards to the Deobandees who lied that Shaykul-Islam Nadheer Husain Dehlawi was not a student of Shah Ishaaq Dehlawi?

Yes my son I am the one who transcribed that treatise with my own hand in the presence of the great Allamah, Muhadeeth Nadheer Ahmed Rahmani, I believe that Shaykh Abdul-Hameed Rahmani has the manuscript, I wish that he would publish it.

    Jafar, were you not the one who said you don’t care about numbers and you will refute the deobandi “elders” becuase it’s the HAQ and you will mention the names. And when i told mentioned to you it is not wise because it will make the people hate you, you said the truth was more important?

    Why did your noble father and shaikh here say otherwise? Why not adopt the methodology of imam bukhari?

      Shen don’t get carried away with yourself, if you read carefully This issue the sheikh is discussing is Naming deobandis, braelwis and individuals from them on the Mimbar when delivering the khutba on the day of Jummah.The sheikh is not talking about publishing books and writing articles.

    So when bukhari refutes the hanafi positions in his saheeh collection – is that a book or is it a khutba from the mimbar?

    The same principle applies. similarly with your articles and links refuting Imam Abu hanifa, Yes, we are aware he has been mentioned in some books about him including imam bukhari. But considering the time and place you are living in, is that the benefit these people require? And will it make the people attracted to your call or make them despise it?

    Oh, but numbers don’t matter for you – the haq is one and the jamah is those on the haq! Thankfully you shaykh has a bit more wisdom than you. Try listening to him.
