Advice from Shaikh an-Najmee that serves as Reminder of Ocean of Difference between Tawheed, righteousness Allaah commands Mankind with and clear-as-day Deviance of Khawaarij in stark opposition to what Allaah revealed
After praising Allaah subhanahu wa ta'aala and asking Allaah to send salaam upon the Prophet, his family and companions, Shaikh Ahmad ibnu Yahya an-Najmee (rahimahullaah) said:
This is directed to our brothers in Britian. I advise myself and you with the Taqwa of Allaah, to be dutiful to and fearful of Allaah. I advise you with Istiqammah...and to be upright upon the Salafee Manhaj (Methodology). This manhaj is such that there is no salvation for anyone of the people except by proceeding upon that methodology. And that manhaj is acting upon the Book of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and obeying the commands in that Book and staying away from whatever is forbidden in that Book.
And that we believe in the matters of the Ghayb (hidden and Unseen) that Allaah informed us of in the Book (Qur`an), and that we have eeman in whatever is described in the Book, and whatever will occur in the future, close to the Hour, or at the Hour, or after the establishment of the Hour, and regarding the Resurrection, and things that will happen therein, and the establishment of the scales of justice, and the opening of the record of deeds, and the Sirat that will be laid down over the fire, and so on from the affairs that Allaah, the Perfect and Most High, informed us of in His Book and upon the tongue of His Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam). We must have Eeman in them. So this is the Salafee methodology, so proceed upon it and act in that manner.
After advising you and counceling you with that, I warn the brothers from following other maanahij (methodologies), newly invented methodologies, methodologies which contradict the Book and the Sunnah and (maanahij) that are contrary to what the Salaf (Prophet and his companions) were upon. [I warn you of] methodologies that entail takfir - declaring Muslims [to be] disbelievers without a just cause. Methodologies that bring about killing of the Muslims, and killing of disbelievers who live within the land of the Muslim with a guarantee of safety. [I warn you of methodologies that entail] killing of women and children, and suicide missions, blowing themselves up and whoever is nearby - women, children, Muslims, disbelievers all blown up by these explosions.
The like of this...they are the methodology of the Khawaarij, whom the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) warned against. [Then the shaikh mentioned many ahadeeth that have already preceeded in this Topic.]
These are the people - the Khawaarij - who declare Muslims to be "kaafirs," Muslims who pray, Muslims who fast, Muslims who carry out acts of 'ibaadah, without any legitimate reason for that. This is very serious and a severe affair. To Allaah we belong, and to Allaah we shall return. (Al-Baqarah, ayah 156)
What is required from people is Tawheed, the worship of Allaah alone. What is required from us is Tawheed, salat, zakat, fasting, and Hajj, and recitation of the Qur`an, and we make haram what Allaah made haram, such as Ribaa (interest), devouring other people's wealth without right - even though the Khawaarij (themselves) fall into these. What is required from people is Tawheed.Allaah says (what means): And they were commanded not, but that they should worship Allaah, and worship none but Him Alone (abstaining from ascribing partners to Him), and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat: and that is the right religion. (Al-Baiyinah, ayah 5)
This is what is upon us - not the way of the Khawaarij.Question and Answers
They [the Khawaarij] are coming with something new. The Khawaarij make the blood of the Muslim "halal" ("lawful"), whereas Allaah, The Most High, said: "...if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind... (Al-Ma`idah, ayah 32)
And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allaah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him. (An-Nisa, ayah 93)
The Khawaarij kill men, women and children, they commit suicide, they kill themselves, suicide missions, killing others. This is something forbidden in the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah.
Allaah, The Most High, said: And do not kill yourselves (nor kill one another)... (An-Nisa, ayah 29)
These are people who go beyond the limits - ghuloo (extremism).The Khawaarij of today are worse than the Khawaarij before. The Khawaarij then claimed they were correct. The Khawaarij today have thrown that out the window, and the religion has become killing - killing men, killing women, killing children, killing Muslims, killing disbelievers. It has become the whole of their religion.So we have explained the true religion of Allaah, and that the Khawaarij are those who have deviated away from the truth, and are to be kept away from.
First Question: The shaikh (rahimahullaah) was asked about those who make excuses for the Khawaarij, those who kill the Muslims and cause corruption to people's property and those like Bin Laden:
First Answer: Those who make excuses for them, then they are just like them. They are misguided, astray, just like them.
Second Question: What is the ruling concerning the one who gives a fatwah that "it is correct to enter into elections" and praises the democracy of the kufaar?
Second Answer: The elections are a bid'ah, newly introduced. And whoever gives a fatwah allowing election, then he has no doubt erred. And we ask Allaah to guide this person. [The shaikh may not have heard the second part of the question, regarding Democracy.]
