Benefits in Manhaj from our Sitting with Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (hafidhahullaah), Parts 1 & 2; compiled by Abu Hakeem Bilal Davis (hafidhahullaah)

Part 1 (http://ah-sp.com/2012/11/04/benefits-in-manhaj-from-our-sitting-with-shaikh-ahmad-baazmool-3112012-part-1/) -----> http://ah-sp.com/2012/11/04/benefits-in-manhaj-from-our-sitting-with-shaikh-ahmad-baazmool-3112012-part-1/


The Sunnah - as the Messenger Sallallahu 'alaihi Was Salam informed us - is strange. That is, its followers, those who know it, those who act upon it and those who traverse upon its path are strangers.

The Messenger Sallallahu alaihi Wa Salam - informed us of this reality in the hadeeth: Islaam began as something strange and shall return to being something strange so give glad tidings to the strangers.

Thus this affair - that is the affair of the strangeness of the Sunnah and its people - requires from us an important affair, and that is that each one of us seeks to receive salvation by following the truth, particularly for the day that no wealth or child will help anyone, only that a person comes to Allaah with a sound pure heart.

So if the Sunnah has this strangeness connected to it, and its followers are few while the people of fitna are many, what is upon the truthful Muslim who wishes to implement the statement of Allaah the Most High (what means): Oh you who believe fear Allah and be with the righteous.

Nothing is upon the truthful sincere Muslim other than to be ardent about following truth, and clinging to it, and its people and that he avoids opposing it in any way.

I mention this due to that which we see from opposition to this great principle. Almost as though a goodly outcome (in the hereafter) is something "easy to come by," and "therefore there is no problem with us opposing this affair."

Allaah mentions (what means): Let those who opposed the command of the Messenger that a fitna overcome them or that they are overcome by a severe punishment.

Thus it refers to anything from the Sunnah generally. So what is the outcome of opposing Sunnah?

That a fitna will overcome them. That is, they will be put under trial in the affairs of their religion due to them opposing the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam).

Imaam Ahmad said: "Do you know what the fitna is my son? The fitna is shirk." Thus a person doesn't cease involving himself in this opposition until he falls into shirk, and we seek refuge in Allaah!

Thus we hear the scholars saying that the Sunni, due to his clinging to the Sunnah, becomes a major individual, even if his knowledge is little, and the one who opposes the sunnah, is considered minor, even if his knowledge is abundant. What is it that caused this one to be raised and that one to be placed low? The Sunnah and Ittibaa (Following the Messenger).

That is because Ittibaa leads to the truth, and saves the one that possesses it by the leave of Allah from misguidance because he is traversing upon the truth.

Indeed from the foundations of the Salafi Manhaj, due to which its proponents are in strangeness is that: They do not have flattery for anyone.

When someone opposes the truth, they explain the truth to them and they call to it. Whosoever returns back to it, they commend them for that. But if they remain upon falsehood, they warn them and warn from them.

Thus they have few followers, they have few supporters, and few are those who truly understand their way. "[I]you people have not left anyone! You have declared all the people innovators!"

But (the question is:) is it us who have followed the path of the people of innovation, or is it they who have followed that way?

Rather than addressing me, address him (the one who followed the path of innovation); rather than warning from me, warn from him!

The deen is not your deen! The affairs are not how you desire them!

Do not call to yourself! Compare this to the state of certain people, from those who have embarked upon giving da'wah and they make mistakes and have no desire to return to the truth and they defend themselves, and they wage war against the people of truth!

So you have established yourself for da'wah why? Who are you calling to? To Allaah? It is upon you to call them to Allaah.

If you make a mistake, then you rejoice if it is shown to you, as the Salaf rejoiced with the one who explained to them their mistake that they may leave [the mistake].

As the scholars mention: the 'Aalim if he makes a mistake he has two states:
Either the mistake is the type of mistake that no human is free of, a natural mistake, then the scholar is not dispraised due to this - except if they become plentiful. As Ibn 'Abdil Barr mentioned: if he repeatedly makes mistakes, he errs, he errs, he errs, then it is said, "this is not an 'aalim; rather he is considered from the common people. He has embarked upon giving da'wah, but he is not fit for da'wah.

But as for the mistake that is considered from human nature when he leaves it, that is an indication of his virtue, and his humbleness and a proof of him being firmly grounded.

2. The one who errs, and he opposes the people of the truth, and the affair is explained to him, and he persists upon falsehood, now this is a different affair.

The Prophet Sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam - said: It is not error I fear for you but it is persisting (upon wrong) that I fear for you... (Collected by Haakim in his Mustadrak 2/582)

That you oppose the haq and intend to remain upon this falsehood while you know. Couple between the one who opposes intentionally, the Sunnah of the Messenger Sallallahu 'alaihi Was Sallam and (couple it) with the statement of Allaah.

...I call to Allaah... [Yusuf, ayah 108].

Not to his own path or his own way or his own party!

Benefits in Manhaj from our Sitting with Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (hafidhahullaah), Part 3 (http://ah-sp.com/2012/11/08/benefits-in-manhaj-from-our-sitting-with-shaikh-ahmad-baazmool-3112012-part-3/)


There are four issues Ash-Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Abdil Wahaab mentioned. All of us know them, but not all of us implement them!

1. Al-'Ilm (knowledge) That is that you learn before you speak, then;
2. Action, because knowledge is either a proof for you or a proof against you, the;
3. Call the people to that which you have learnt, and if you do so then it is a must that you have;
4. Sabr (Patience) because you will find harm (from the people), you will find opposition to your da'wah and those who will speak against you with a view to destroying your da'wah.

So do not busy yourself with defending yourself and your person, but as for defending the truth, then busy yourself with that because this is an affair that is waajib. Some of the people say, 'but if you're upon the truth, then why do you need to respond to those who speak against you?' If it is about your person, then there is no need for you to speak about your person. But if they speak about you due to your manhaj, the manhaj you are upon, then either you explain with evidence that which you are upon or you abandon the falsehood you are upon [the falsehood] they are speaking about you for.

Thus some of the people say, 'I don't get involved in these affairs,' then we say to him: Stop! Come here. If they are saying about you, (saying) 'you are short' or 'tall' or 'slim' or 'fat' or 'he doesnt spend on his children,' or 'he doesn't spend on his wife,' then yes do not speak (i.e. do not respond to these types of statements). But if they say, 'you have opposed the manhaj of the Salaf concerning such and such,' then either you explain with evidence (as did) Imaam Ibn Jareer At Tabari and he was the Imaam of his time may Allaah show him mercy. When some of the people spoke about him, he wrote a book and named it 'Sareehus Sunnah' (The Clear Sunnah), explaining his belief with evidence, and he defended himself and his da'wah. Pay attention!

Benefits in Manhaj from our sitting with Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool, Part 4 (http://ah-sp.com/2013/01/01/benefits-in-manhaj-from-our-sitting-with-shaikh-ahmad-baazmool-3112012-part-4/)


Therefore oh youth! Be ardent, leave this fitan, leave these tribulations, be Salafees who are true. Follow the path of the Salaf; they didn't have the likes of these differences and this instability (in affairs of manhaj). Up until relatively recently, these things were not known with our scholars.
So (as was mentioned [Allaah's command to His Messenger to say]): ...I call to Allaah..." (Yusuf, ayah 108). It is a must that we reflect upon it and its meaning and that we have a true pause for reflection upon it. Call to Allaah, not to 'Ali Al Halabi, not to Al Ma`ribee, not to Abdul-Maalik Ramadhaani, not to Abdul-Azeez Ar Rayyis, not to such and such from those who have opposed the truth and whom the scholars have warned against like Ibraaheem Ar Ruhailee. No! (Call) to Allaah!

These individuals have opposed the truth, that's it! They are left, stay with the truth, follow the path of the truth, save yourself! Wallaahi (By Allaah) these individuals will not benefit you. Wallaah! Those who have opposed the truth, wallaahi they will not benefit you. Ruhaili, Ar Rayyis, this one, that one. If they are upon the haqq, then be with them. But if they are upon falsehood - and the 'Ulamaa clarify their affair - then leave them.

Call to Allaah! Don't call to individuals. Do you wish to glorify Allaah and call to Allaah, or call to individuals?

Upon until recently if the 'Ulamaa spoke against an individual, his affair would be finished. They would leave him! Having blind allegiance to the Shaikh? No! By Allaah! Due to following the truth.
