Shaikh Fawzaan's Refutation of the Doubt, False Claim: Take The Good And Abandon Mistakes (http://salaficentre.com/2011/11/false-views-take-the-good-and-abandon-mistakes/)


Question To Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah): "What is the ruling on the one who defends a person of innovation and he says, '(This person) has good deeds and has given service to Islaam in such,' since this has become widespread amongst some of the callers. What is the ruling on this?"

Answer: We clarify errors in order that the people may keep away from it. As for possessing good deeds, then this is with Allaah. We do not have knowledge of that. Whatever his good deeds are, they will not be lost with Allaah and we are not a scale by which good and evil deeds are weighed. Good and evil deeds have their scale on the Day of Judgement with Allaah (The Most High).

Our intention is not to diminish the individual, rather our intention is to clarify the truth and unveil errors so that people may not fall to it. As for the (personal/private affairs of the person), we do not enter into that. If he has good deeds, then his good deeds will not be lost with Allaah. We neither talk about his good deeds nor do we say that he has no good deeds. Allaah is more knowledgeable about his good deeds and our intention is to clarify errors in order that people do not incline towards it...

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy on him, commented on one of the most famous explanations of the Qur'aan from the Mu'tazilah entitled, "al-Kashaaf". This tafseer has been read by many, both in the past and the present who fell for the high level of eloquence and literature in this book.

He (sallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam) has warned against this and said, "Verily the example of the righteous sitting and the evil sitting is like that of the merchant of fine perfumes and the ironsmith. ..."
Everyone you see now, who it is said about them that they are hizbee, all of them where lost due to this path; they were all taken and destroyed by the (evil) philosophy, "I am taking the truth and leaving the evil." (In reality), they are taking the evil and leaving the truth, they become enemies to the truth. They (end up) becoming of those who war against the people of the truth!
