On Tuesday 21st Shawwāl 1440 (25th June 2019) A question was sent for our regular question and answer session with our noble Shaykh The Father ʿAllāmah Ḥasan ibn ʿAbdul Wahhāb al-Bannā (may Allāh preserve him) regarding a claim that he said it is permissible to take knowledge from Abū ʿAbd-alʿAlā Khālid Muḥammad ʿUthmān al-Misrī even though he erred with regard to the issue of Muḥammad binHadī and his accusations of ṣaʿāfiqah. Our Shaykh Ḥasan, the ʿAlim of Egypt, explicitly declared his innocence from this accusation and instead stated in no uncertain terms that he stands with Shaykh Rabīʿ in warning against Khālid Muḥammad ʿUthmān.
Our Noble Shaykh The Father Ḥasan ibn ʿAbdul Wahhāb al-Bannā and Shaykh ‘Ali Waṣīfī (may Allah preserve them) wrote an explicit bayān clarifying the falsehood of Muḥammad bin Hadī and his heinous attacks against the Salafīs without evidence. On Saturday 21st Dhū al-Ḥijjah, 1439 (1st September, 2018) our Noble Shaykh Ḥasan was very generous to allow us at Muwahhideen Publications a special question and answer session to put forth some of the doubts that were being spread regarding this affair by the supporters of Muḥammad bin Hadī.
We at Mpubs continue with this series of immensely beneficial answers clarifying these erroneous doubts
Question Three: Is It Incumbent On All The Students of Knowledge To Take A Position In The Fitnah of Muḥammad bin Hādī or Can They Remain Neutral?
Pivotal Quotes from the Shaykh’s answer ~
“…Shaykh Rabīʿ is a specialist in the science, the science of Jarḥ wa Ta’dīl. So, if he is telling you something in that science then you must abide by that, even though there might be a possibility that any Shaykh may make a mistake as well as be correct. But, yet when the proof is in his favour then we must take upon what he says.
And all of this that is happening according to my understanding and my understanding of course is according to my capabilities, because people have not got themselves used to being upon obedience and respect.”
“So, how are we going to get a ruling on this matter? How are we going to have a decisive side in this case? Are you telling me that all the scholars could not come up with one opinion verses the other so, the case would be decisive, does this make any sense to you? This only means, the one that is telling you this, is that they have deficiencies of their own by taking such neutral positions.“
“These people are those that are hung up in the middle, they are weak. They cannot solve a problem by saying what they are saying. You must advise them and tell them be firm and say don’t you trust our Shaykh, Shaykh Rabīʿ? Isn’t he the Imām of Jarḥ wa Ta’dīl. You must let matters keep on going and you must stick to the opinions of the major scholars, so the fitnah can quiet down, so you would kill the fitnah by sticking to the opinions of the major scholars.”
