After being shot several times while in the Philippines, ‘Ayd al-Qarnī - a known Ikhwānī who has been warned against by many of the Salafī ‘Ulamā` - was visited in the hospital by some of our noble scholars, namely Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān and as a result, a degree of confusion arose as some persons deemed this to be in opposition to the Salafī Manhaj while others believed it was a tazkiyyah for al-Qarnī. However this is not the case, as we will see in the following articles by Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī (رحمه الله), Shaykh Fawāz al-Madkhalī and Shaykh Ṣalāh Kintūsh (حفظهما الله).
Pivotal Quote from Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī: “What is apparent to me in this issue is the permissibility of visiting him for whoever has knowledge of the Sharī‘ah.”
Pivotal Quote from Shaykh Fawāz al-Madkhalī: “Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān’s visit to ‘Ayd al-Qarnī does not mean that ‘Ayd al-Qarnī is excused from his contradictions to the Sharī’ah and (that he is excused from) his contradictions in Manhaj and ‘Aqīdah."
Pivotal Quote from Shaykh Ṣalāh Kintūsh: "As for the Shaykh’s stance against al-Qarnī, then it is known by what is widespread from the Shaykh’s refutations of him; so let not the lenient/soft be happy with the Shaykh’s visit."

The following article, selected by Shaykh 'Abd Al-Qādir al-Junayd (حفظه الله) from the writings of Ibn Taymiyyah
(رحمه الله) briefly highlights the recompense for the one who manifests bid'ah and calls to it. This article was translated by our noble brother Abū Afnān Muḥammad 'Abd Allāh (حفظه الله).
~ An excerpt taken from the article ~
"And the least of his punishment is that he is abandoned, does not have a position in the religion, nor is knowledge taken from him, nor is he requested to be a judge, nor is his testimony accepted and (he is treated with) other similar (punishments)."
