AN ACCURATE ANSWER TO

THE QUESTION OF SPUBS


"WHY IS MAKTABAH SALAFIYYAH REFUTED
BY SHAIKH YAHYAH AND OTHERS
AFFILIATED TO
DAMMAAJ"

WRITTEN BY:
MAHMOOD BIN MUHAMMAD

For verily Allah has sent down a glorious book which is guidance
and a mercy for mankind as He the Most High has said:







16-15 :
Verily there has come to you (all) from Allah light and a clear book.
Allah guides by it those who follow his pleasure to the pathways of
peace.
And Allah also said:



52 :
And we have come unto them with a book, which We explained in
detail, a guide and a mercy to a believing people.
And He the Most High stated:



2-1 :
Aleef. Laam. Raa. A Book which We have revealed to you, in order
that you might lead mankind out of the depths of darkness into
light by the leave of their Lord to the Path of the All Mighty, worthy
of all praise!









57-58 :

O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Lord,
and a healing for that (disease of ignorance, doubt, hypocrisy and
so on.) in your breasts, - a guidance and a mercy for the believers.
58. Say: "In the Bounty of Allah, and in His Mercy; -therein let them
rejoice." That is better than what they amass.
Therefore, the Quran is a blessing a guide a mercy and a healing
for the believers from Allah. This glorious book consists of
everything that mankind needs in all matters that pertain to their
worldly life and the hereafter. Allah has also placed therein
commandments and prohibitions of total clarity in order for us to
know the boundaries of Allah so as not to transgress them as Allah
has said:




54 :
Surely, His is the Creation and the Commandment, Blessed is
Allah, the Lord of All Creation.
And He stated with regard to His prohibitions:

119 :
And He has explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you,
except under compulsion of necessity. And surely many do lead
(mankind) astray by their own desires through lack of
knowledge. Certainly your Lord knows best the transgressors.

While He also said:





1:
And those are the set limits of Allah. And whosoever transgresses
the set limits of Allah, then indeed he has wronged himself

From the matters that Allah the Most high has prohibited the
believers from in His glorious book is for them to have similitude or
likeness to Ahlul-Kitaab (the Jews and Christians) as Allah has
said:






19:
And be not like those who forgot Allah so He made them forget
their own souls! Such are the rebellious transgressors!
And He said:





16 :
Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe (in the
Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism) to be affected by Allh's
Reminder (this Qur'n), and that which has been revealed of the
truth, lest they become as those who received the Scripture [the
Taurt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] before (i.e. Jews and
Christians), and the term was prolonged for them and so their
hearts were hardened? And many of them were Fsiqn
(rebellious, disobedient to Allh).
Ibn Katheer -may Allah have mercy on him- said in his explanation
of the previous ayah "and for this reason Allah prohibited the
believers from resembling them (i.e. the Jews and Christians) in
any of the fundamental or subsidiary matters."






104 :
O you who believe! Say not (to the Messenger Sal-Allaahu 'alayhe
Wa Sallam ) R'ina but say Unzurna (Do make us understand) and
hear. And for the disbelievers there is a painful torment

While he (Ibn Katheer) said in his clarification of this ayah "Allah


the Most High forbade his believing slaves from imitating the
disbelievers in their statements and their actions.
In many ayaat of His Glorious Book Allah informed us of the ways
of Ahlul-Kitaab (the Jews and Christians) and this being for no
reason other than for us as Muslims to abstain from their path and
refrain from their methods in which by them they try to alter the
truth as Allah has said to them in admonishment:





42 :
And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth [i.e.
Muhammad Peace be upon him is Allah's Messenger and his
qualities are written in your Scriptures, the Taurat (Torah) and the
Injeel (Gospel)] while you know (the truth).
And He the Most High has also said:









71 :
O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): "Why do you mix
truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know?
I ask Allah to make from those who take heed when reminded,
whom He has mentioned in His book in His statement:




55 :
And remind (O Muhammad Sal-Allaahu 'alayhe Wa Sallam) for
verily, the reminding benefits the believers.
So for us not to follow the ways of Ahlul-Kitaab (the Jews and
Christians) intentionally or inadvertently- seeking by this to delude
the people or to distort the truth in an attempt to liberate ourselves
from certain errors which we may have fallen into. Since by this
we may enter the admonishment of Allah as he stated:

















111-112 :
And whoever earns sin, he earns it only against himself. And Allh
is Ever All-Knowing, All Wise.
And whoever earns a fault or a sin and then throws it on to
someone innocent, he has indeed burdened himself with falsehood
and a manifest sin...
After this brief introduction, I would like to discuss by the will of
Allah- certain matters which I came across in a letter written by AlMaktabah Assalafiyah (otherwise known as SPUBS) in an attempt
to clarify to the people the reason why they were criticized by the
noble Shaykh Yahya bin Ali Al-Hajooree may Allah preserve himand others "affiliated" to Damaaj -as they alleged- which
speaking frankly was a misrepresentation and/ misinterpretation on
behave of authors which portrayed to the sincere reader the
authors will to debase themselves in order to make their voice
heard and Allah's aid is sought. As a result, I then felt obliged to
shed light upon these misrepresentations seeking by this to make
clear to the noble readers the honest truth of the matter.
Before I commence however, I would like to point out that it has
become quite common for the brothers at Al-Maktabah Assalafiyah
in their clarifications or refutations to use "SPUBS" or
"SalafiPublications" as a guise instead of mentioning the authors
name and this in reality is not done without purpose but rather
deliberately for many reasons. From the reasons why this would
be done is due to fear on the part of the author which causes
him to conceal himself from the public. If indeed this is the
grounds for their guise then I advise them with the statement of the
messenger of Allah sallahu alahi wa salam- when he took the
oath of the companion Ubaadah bin Saamit that he speaks the
truth wherever he is and that he not fear (in the way of) Allah
the reproach of a blamer. (Al-Bukhari 7055 and Muslim 1709).
This concealment could also have another reason which is:
If the clarification or refutation consists of statements liable to
disapproval, then the critic knows not who to reply to and is forced
to respond to them generally at which also gives them the

opportunity to say "I have no knowledge of such a matter" or "I


wasn't involved" and so on.
Furthermore, this methodology of composing articles behind the
guise of an organization or school or anything of the sort was not
known from the Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam or the SalafusSaalih rather their letters, books and refutations are known and we
do not find any of them hiding behind the veil of organization. The
Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam when he wrote to Hareqal the
leader of the Romans he said:

  
 
From Muhammad the slave of Allah and his Messenger
To Hareqal the great of Rome
As is found in Al-Bukhari (7) and Muslim (4707)
Also the books of refutation written by the Salaf the likes of Arrad
'ala Al-Jahmiyah of Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal or Arrad 'ala Bishr
Imreesi of Al-Imaam Addaarami or Khalq af'aal Al-'ibaad of Imam
Al-Bukhari or other than them from the different books of refutation
then the author is clearly known to the people. Therefore I advise
the brothers to leave off this unfounded methodology which has no
derivation from the way of Allah's Messenger or the Salafus-Saalih
and to return to their path in this matter.
Proceeding to the Letter
The writers stated in their title:
Why is Maktabah Salafiyyah Refuted by Shaikh Yahyah
and others affiliated to
Dammaaj
This title is in need of some clarity. What is this affiliation to
Damaaj?! For us as Muslims are bound by the religion of Allah to
an Islamic brotherhood for the sake of Allah as He has stated in
His glorious Book:




10:

The believers are nothing more than brothers.


Whilst from the strongest ties of eeman is to love and hate for the
sake of Allah as the Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam has said in
the hadeeth reported by Imam Attabaraani on the authority of Ibn
Abbas and authenticated by Al-Albaani in "Assaheeh Al-Jami"
(2539) the strongest ties of Eemaan are coming together for the
sake of Allah and having enmity for the sake of Allah and loving for
the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah azza wa jal.
Whilst we have also been commanded to order with good and
forbid evil following the statement of Allah:


104 :
Let there (arise) out of you a group of people inviting to all that is
good (Islm), enjoining Al-Ma'rf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all
that Islm orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism
and disbelief and all that Islm has forbidden). And it is they who
are the successful.
As well as the statement of the Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam
whoever from amongst you sees evil than let him change it with
his hand and if he can not do so than with his tongue and if he can
not do so then with his heart and that is the weakest (level) of
Eemaan. Reported by Muslim on the authority Abu Saeed AlKhudri (49).
Therefore if it is intended by this affiliation that it is based on
brotherhood for the sake of Allah as well coming together and
separating for His sake than this is correct. However, if it is
intended by this affiliation other than that which the Book of Allah
and the Sunnah of His Messenger have permitted than this is
totally incorrect and the brothers who put forth their points of
criticism are either students here or brothers who have themselves
seen erroneous matters emanating from the brothers at (SPUBS)
and have put forward their clarifications with regard to them.
Furthermore, it could be understood from your statement and
others affiliated Damaaj that you yourselves have no affiliation

to Damaaj or the students there and if this is the case than I


remind you that this is not permissible in the religion for a person
to have Al-Baraa (the act disassociating from individual, group etc.
according to the degree of the error) of a single Muslim without any
justified reason is impermissible and clearly goes against the
statement of Allah the Most High:





72:
The believers, men and women, are Auliy' (helpers, supporters,
friends, protectors) of one another
And the hadeeth that the two Imams Al-Bukhari (2051) and Muslim
(1599) narrated on the authority of Numaan bin Basheer that the
Messenger Sallahu alahi wa salam wa said the example of the
believers in their love for one another and their mercy upon one
another and their harbouring of mutual affection is the likes of the
body if one of its limbs suffers the rest of the body cries out (for the
suffering limb) with sleeplessness and fever.

SPUBS said:
The attacks against al-Maktabah as-Salafiyyah emanating
from some youth in Dammaaj who eventually managed to
sufficient deception to convince Shaikh Yahyah to speak
against al-Maktabah as-Salafiyyah is rooted in the fact
that al-Maktabah as-Salafiyyah were not convinced that
the speech against Allaamah 'Ubaid al-Jaabiree is
acceptable
The writers claim that the main reason why they were attacked
was because they were not convinced that the criticisms against
Ubaid Al-Jaabiree were valid, consists of much deception and is
an attempt to pull the wool of the eyes of the reader and I remind
them to fear Allah and know that they will be asked about their
actions in front of Allah the Most High and let them remember the
statement of Allah:



















30:

On the Day when every person will be confronted with all the good
he has done, and all the evil he has done, he will wish that there
were a great distance between him and his evil. And Allh warns
you against Himself (His Punishment) and Allh is full of Kindness
to the (His) slaves.
Firstly, there was no such attack against Al-Maktabah as the
writers allege the brother Abdullah Al-Hindee simply wrote them a
letter which he privately sent to them- seeking to advise them of
certain mistakes which had reached him of Al-Maktabah
Assalafiyah and after some on the part of the brothers at (SPUBS)
Abdullah chose to make public their mistakes. While the brothers
at (SPUBS), in the meantime were composing a letter scarce of
proofs from the Book and the Sunnah and ample in threat
demanding to meet in the house of Shaykh so and so and so and
so in which they denied everything that Abdullah had stated in the
advice claiming that it was either a lie or exaggeration on his part
or on the part of the one who had informed him.
Therefore, their claim that they were attacked is clearly false
and the first letter that Abdullah wrote them can be found in his
article which he titled "The Victory of the Lord of Creation" for the
reader to judge whether their claim of an attack is valid. Also in
aforementioned letter there is mention of other mistakes other than
their bias towards Ubaid Al-Jaabiree which is clear to any reader
why then this deceit and at what cost. Ya Subhaanallah.
There was also no use of deception nor did any one try to
convince Shaykh Yahya to speak out about (SPUBS). Before the
brother Abdullah Al-Hindee even presented his article which
contained some of the mistakes of (SPUBS) to the Shaykh a
question was posed to the Shaykh related to (SPUBS) soliciting
the people even for money which they have come into by way of
riba (usury). In return the Shaykh rebuked them for this and also
added that they are known for falling into fitan, the likes of the
fitnah of Faalih Al-Harbee, Saalih Al-Bakry and now Ubaid AlJabiree..
This as mentioned took place before Abdullah Al-Hindee
presented the points of criticism against the Maktabah to the
Shaykh. However, when he finally did submit his article to Shaykh
Yahya may Allah preserve him- read the article and saw it
necessary to speak against their mistakes (SPUBS) once again.
10

Therefore, again these are mere allegations and speculations on


the part of the Maktabah which they must bring forth evidences to
support them following the statement of the Messenger sallahu
alahi wa salam: Upon the one alleging (something) is (for him to
bring forth) the evidence. While the one denying (the allegation is
to give his) oath This wording of the hadeeth was reported by AlBayhaqi 10/252 on the authority of Ibn Abbas and was
authenticated by Al-Albani in "Irwaa Al-Ghaleel 8/266". Otherwise
this is sheer swindling and Allahs aid is sought.

SPUBS said:
were not convinced that the speech against Allaamah
'Ubaid al-Jaabiree is acceptable according to the
principles of Ahl al-Sunnah, and therefore refused to
accept such (unfounded) harsh criticisms against Shaikh
'Ubaid
In an attempt to preserve time I simply ask what are these so
called principles of Ahlus-Sunnah which were employed so as not
to accept the criticisms against Ubaid Al-Jaabiree? so that we
may make take benefit from them. Being that the brothers at
(SPUBS) should be from amongst the first to know that the
detailed criticism takes precedence of the general
recommendation. Therefore, these principles of Ahlus-Sunnah
which have no mention for some reason in the Maktabahs article
but were however applied by them must be clarified as they are in
clear contradiction to the well known principle of Ahlus-Sunnah in
Jarh wa Tadeel that the detailed criticism takes precedence
of the general recommendation.
Many of the people who have been following this current fitnah
especially in the West have no clear understanding of what really
transpired between Shaykh Yahya and Ubaid Al-Jaabiree may
Allah rectify his condition- all that is circulated is Shaykh Yahya
declared Ubaid Al-Jaabiree to be a hizbee or he has said harsh
words of criticism against Shaykh Ubaid. While those who are
spreading this speech and it likes are of two categories;
Either they have no real knowledge themselves of what has
occurred between them and are forgetting the admonishment of
Allah in his statement:

11











And follow not (O man i.e., say not, or do not or witness not, etc.)
that of which you have no knowledge (e.g. one's saying: "I have
seen," while in fact he has not seen, or "I have heard," while he
has not heard). Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of
each of those you will be questioned (by Allh).
Or they have waged a staunch, undying defense of Ubaid AlJaabiree may Allah correct his situation- with no regard as to
what the Book of Allah or the Sunnah of his Messenger sallahu
alahi wa salam and the Methodology of the Salafus-Saalih have
declared in this matter so as to see who is in fact is at fault
between them.
As for the one who returns to the commentaries and articles
authored by Shaykh Yahya and Ubaid Al-Jaabiree from the time
that Ubaid Al-Jaabiree may Allah grant him the success to return
from his errors- barged into this fitnah in defense of the
transgressing hizbee Abdurahmaan Al-Adnee (for more
information related to his fitnah return to www.aloloom.net) who
has caused a rift through Ahlus-Sunnah here in Yemen and
elsewhere the likes that has not been seen since the fitnah of AbilHassan Al-Maribee. He will clearly see who began the loathsome
slander and harsh criticisms which are only being attributed to
Shaykh Yahya where in fact it was he who should much patience
and forbearance to the slander of Ubaid Al-Jabiree and the
fabrications he stated about Shaykh Yahya which without doubt
were being dictated to him from Abdurahmaan Al-Adnee and/or his
associates.
I take this moment to enlighten the noble readers as to what was
stated by Ubaid Al-Jabiree may Allah rectify his condition- about
Shaykh Yahya before Shaykh Yahya began to reply to his insults.
Was it not then Ubaid Al-Jabiree who stated about Shaykh Yahya:
 However, that which is well-known about Shaykh Yahya may
Allah guide him- is that he offends whoever differs with him in
the matters of Ijtihaad and he reviles and detests them while
he speaks ill of them and this is the path of the one who has

12

been deprived of forbearance and wisdom and has opposed


the callers of truth upon clarity. (Annaqd Assaheeh lima
Tathamanau Attanbeeh Assaaded. Of Ubaid Al-Jabiree)
And in a telephone conversation which had taken place between
Ubaid Al-Jabiree and a caller from Hathra-Moat, Yemen after the
caller asked him about the on going fitnah between Shaykh Yahya
and Muhammad Abdulwahaab and Abdurahman Al-Adnee Ubaid
(may Allah rectify his condition) replied:
 Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahaab Al-Wasaabee is a wise
man and the brother Yahya has an insolent tongue and is foul in
speech. He has no consideration of anyones sanctity if you
were to accompany him for ten years it is possible for him to
destroy (this relationship) in an hour. He does not proceed
upon gentleness though he may possess knowledge however; he
is deprived of forbearance and wisdom. Yes. (The transcription of
this conversation can be found in the book aon Al-Baree of
Shaykh Abdul-Hameed Al-Hajoori pg.86)
He also said in the same phone conversation:
 However, as I have mentioned to you, if you were to board a
car for example and you (previously) did not possess a
vehicle then there came to you a vehicle sometimes they will
say where did he get this car from? What is apparent is that
Shaykh Yahya and many others do not know the general rule of
Hizbiyah. (aon Al-Baree pg.87)
 And the individual (i.e. Shaykh Yahya) may Allah bless youhas an insolent tongue.
And yet in another phone conversation took place between Ubaid
Al-Jabiree and a caller from Indonesia where he said:
 As for Al-Hajooree then he is a fool, the likes of Yahya AlHajooree who has deviated the centre that was founded by the
eminent personality Shaykh Muqbil may Allah have mercy on
him-. However, Al-Hajooree due to his stupidity and lack of
shyness alters it (i.e. the centre) many of the time to what
resembles gatherings of evening chat, for he does not speak with
the breath of Ahlulilm but rather he speaks with the breath of

13

the people of idiocy and shamelessness. (aon Al-Baree


pg.100)
While Ubaid Al-Jabiree may Allah correct him- in the same
conversation clearly prohibits studying in Damaaj and put forward
an advice to four categories of people:
1. To the first group living in Damaaj everyone living there to
depart and to enter join the other different institutes in
Yemen. Being that those in charge are more intelligent
than Yahya Al-Hajooree.
2. To the second groups his guards (i.e. Shaykh Yahya) to put
down their weapons and to refrain from him because by them
remaining with him they are aiding him in his stupidity and
shamelessness.
3. The third group the tribesmen of Shaykh Muqbil -those amongst
them who have capability (of making changes)- and are from the
wise are and possess good management (of affairs). They are
responsible for the happenings that have taken place from this
man (i.e. Shaykh Yahya) by which he has deviated the centre
from the Sunnah* to raise his affair to the those in authority
(i.e. the government) so that they remove this man from the
centre and replace him with someone who will return the
centre to what it was upon during the time of Shaykh Muqbil.
(*It is understood from this statement that Darul-Hadeeth bi
Damaaj is no longer on the Sunnah and Allah's aid is sought.)
4. The fourth group those who are arriving to Yemen who desire to
seek knowledge from Ahlus-Sunnah there in Yemen. I advise
them not to go to Damaaj while it is in its current condition
until Al-Hajooree is removed and Allah smoothes the way for
a man who will return it to what it was upon during the time of
Shaykh Muqbil.
Let the noble readers now honestly judge as to who began the
loathsome naming and vilification of the other and the matter is as
Shaykh Abdul-Hameed Al-Hajoori has said in his book (aon AlBaree) He (Ubaid Al-Jabiree) )mentioned in his disgraceful
14

(statement) falsehood and evil the likes that he was not preceded
by a detestable hizbee or a stubborn Raafidee".
I forget not to mention that the rocklike defense of Abdurahman AlAdnee (the hizbee) and his associates by Ubaid Al-Jabiree may
Allah better his condition- led him to even speak ill of the great
Imaam and the Muhadith of his time Abu Bistaam Shu'bah ibn
Hajaaj who Ameer Mu'mineen fil Hadeeth (the leader of the
believers in hadeeth -in his time-) Sufyaan bin Saeed bin Masrroq
Athoree who is well known as "Imam Athoree" said about him "he (
i.e. Shu'bah) was the first one to scrutinize the Rijaal (narrators of
hadeeth) in Iraq and to defend the sunnah. (this statement can be
found in the book 'Tatheeb Attahtheeb' of Ibn Hajr).
Where Ubaid Al-Jabiree may Allah aid him in returning from his
mistakes- stated that the scholars did not accept his
disparagement due to him being excessive and extreme in his
criticism, which is without doubt incorrect and this is known to
Ubaid Al-Jabiree himself. As he himself -before thisacknowledged the status of this Imam and the fact that the
Muhaditheen (the scholars of hadeeth) use to accept his
disparagement of the narrators. (Ubaid Al-Jabiree's prior
acknowledgement of the status of this Imaam can be read here:
http://aloloom.net/vb/showthread.php?t=9194). This clear selfcontradiction on the part of Ubaid Al-Jabiree is a result of his
unjust defense of Abdurahman Al-Adnee and his associates.
Therefore, we as Ahlus-Sunnah must take heed of this and realize
that just because an individual may have knowledge or is deemed
to be from the people of knowledge then this does not necessitate
that he can not be bias and impartial or fall into deviation and we
ask Allah to make our hearts firm upon the Sunnah
Yet throughout these continuous attacks from Ubaid Al-Jaabiree
may Allah correct him- Shaykh Yahya showed endurance and
even pardoned him of some of his slanders. For example when
Ubaid Al-Jabiree said about Shaykh Yahya may Allah preserve
himHowever, that which is well-known about Shaykh Yahya may
Allah guide him- is that he offends whoever differs with him in
the matters of Ijtihaad and he reviles and detests them while
he speaks ill of them and this is the path of the one who has

15

been deprived of forbearance and wisdom and has opposed


the callers of truth upon clarity.
Shaykh Yahya may Allah preserve him- replied by saying:
This statement if I desired I would leave it for a day which I will be
in much need of taking good deeds (i.e. of those who have
oppressed him) especially since it has to do with my honor,
however , I say may Allah pardon us as well as yourself Oh
Shaykh Ubaid. ('Aon Al-Baree pg.83)
However, this had no avail with Ubaid Al-Jabiree and he persisted
in launching verbal attacks and describing Shaykh Yahya with
loathsome attributes all in defense of Abdurahman Al-Adnee and
his associates. Shaykh Yahya then began to reply to him in
accordance to the statement of Allah:








126 :
And if you punish (your enemy, O you believers in the Oneness of
Allh), then punish them with the like of that with which you were
afflicted. But if you endure patiently, verily, it is better for AsSbirin (the patient ones, etc
Therefore what Shaykh Yahya mentioned about Ubaid Al-Jabiree
was founded and justified contrary to what (SPUBS) claimed.
Ubaid will be the one who bears the sin of what occurred unless
he is granted success in repenting from this- due to the statement
of the Messenger of Allah sallahu alahi wa salam found in Saheeh
Muslim (6756):





The two reviling each other as long as they continue, the sin is
upon the one who began (the revilement) providing the one
oppressed does not transgress.
After this short explanation of some of the on goings between
Shaykh Yahya and Ubaid Al-Jabiree, I would like to advise the
noble readers to look into all matters with an eye of equity and not
let the love of a specific individual or group blind us in the
obtainment of the truth as Allah the Most High has said:

16









b










{






8:
O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allh and be just witnesses
and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice.
Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allh. Verily, Allh is Well
Acquainted with what you do.
As well as

"












b











"






135 :
O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to
Allh, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or
your kin, be he rich or poor, Allh is a Better Protector to both
(than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may
avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it,
verily, Allh is Ever Well Acquainted with what you do.
And that we make our criteria for which we praise the people their
adherence to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Messenger
sallahu alahi wa salam. So whomsoever, holds fast to the Book of
Allah and the Sunnah of his Messenger upon the understanding of
the Salafus-Salih then he is to be loved in proportion to his
obedience. While whosoever, goes against the Book of Allah and
the Sunnah of the Messenger and the understanding of the
Salafus-Salih after his error has been clarified to him then we
should detest him for the sake of Allah according to the level of his
opposition.
By Allah, Ubaid Al-Jabiree was from the most beloved of scholars
to many including myself however, when he began to wage a war
against the people of Sunnah here in Damaaj starting with Shaykh
Yahya may Allah aid him- without any due right and was nothing
more than a defense of certain individuals here in Yemen who
17

ignited fitnah and hizbiyah which has become clear to many and all
praise is for Allah. Also after gentleness and kindness were
exercised in clarifying the truth to him and he persisted upon this
transgression no choice remained but for us to have hate for him
for the sake Allah- and his actions according to the degree of his
injustice until he leaves what he is upon and returns back to the
truth and I ask Allah to aid him in doing so.

SPUBS said:
If the Maktabah had
agreed with the attacks against Shaikh Ubaid, the door of
refutation against the Maktabah would not have been
opened, and Allaah (the Most High) knows best.
This is from the lowliest and pitiful statements of (SPUBS) in this
whole article and shows they have no problem with mentioning
baseless statements to get their point across. Is it expected that
the people will believe this kind of meaningless speculation? How
many people all over the world may not agree with what Shaykh
Yahya has made clear about Ubaid Al-Jabiree for one reason or
another- why are they then not being "attacked" as well. I remind
the brothers at Maktabah Salafiyah of the statement of Allah the
Most High:




152:
And whenever you give your word (i.e. judge between men or give
evidence, etc.), say the truth even if a near relative is concerned
As well as His statement:




"





"

12:
O you who believe! Avoid much suspicion, indeed some
suspicions are sins.
Thus leave off such evil speculation and distrust of your Salafi
brothers whose only fault against you is that the made public your
mistakes. And Allah's aid is sought.

18

SPUBS said:
This position of the Maktabah to refrain from accepting
the vague criticisms against Shaikh Ubaid is also the
position of a large number of the 'ulamah, mashayikh and
tullaab al-'Ilm that are well-known for their Salafiyyah
and clarity upon the Manhaj. The likes of:
Shaikh Rabee' bin Haadee, Shaikh Muhammad bin
Haadee, Shaikh Saalih as-Suhaimee, Shaikh Zaid alMadkhali, Shaikh Abdullaah al-Bukhaaree, Shaikh Abdus
Salaam as-Suhaimee, Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool, Shaikh
Muhammad Baazmool, Shaikh Muhammad bin Ramzaan,
Shaikh Falaah Ismaaeel al-Mandikaar, Shaikh Muhammad
al-Anjaree, Shaikh Ahmad as-Subay'ee, Shaikh Ali
Hadaadee, Shaikh Taariq as-Subay'ee as well as most of
the well-respected mashayikh of Yemen and many more
besides.

Referring to the criticisms made against Ubaid Al-Jabiree as vague


is either due to negligence on the part the brothers at (SPUBS) as
to what is to be considered a detailed disparagement or
deceitfulness from them in an attempt to divert the readers from
accepting the criticisms put forth against Ubaid Al-Jabiree.
Being that the brothers at (SPUBS) know well that if what Shaykh
Yahya may Allah preserve him- has mentioned about Ubaid AlJabiree may Allah rectify his condition- is indeed a detailed
criticism then it is upon whosoever his detailed statements of
disparagement reach to accept them. This is if the disparaging is
done by a righteous scholar who knows well why an individual may
be disparaged and understands well the science of "Ajarh wa
Ta'deel" as this without a doubt is the case with Shaykh Yahya
and Shaykh Muqbil himself has declared him to be a muhadith
(scholar of hadeeth) and I believe that the brothers at Al-Maktabah
Assalafiyah have no contention to this.
Otherwise, they must elucidate the reason why they do not accept
the critical remarks made against Ubaid Al-Jabiree.
What is also known from the principles of "Ajarh wa Ta'deel" is that
if a scholar disagrees with the detailed criticism of another scholar
and declares the detailed criticism to be incorrect then this alone is

19

not sufficient for us to leave the detailed criticism of the first


scholar. Unless the scholar giving recommendation clarifies the
reason why the detailed disparagement is incorrect. As this will be
clarified shortly inshaa Allah.

Therefore, the mere non-acceptance of the disparagement against


Ubaid Al-Jabiree does not mean that what he has been criticized
for is untrue or incorrect. This simply suggests that the one who
does not accept what is said about him either knows not of what
has occurred from Ubaid Al-Jabiree may Allah rectify his
condition- from mistakes and so is in need of looking into his
matter in detail.
Or that he is defending Ubaid with no concern of reassuring the
authenticity of what he has fallen into from mistakes which is totally
incorrect. The latter being the example of Shaykh Muhammad bin
Haadee may Allah rectify his condition- in the audio of that can be
found on www.salafitalk.com/threads/88 which they gladly titled:
"Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee's Defense of Allaamah Ubaid
from Shaikh Yahyah's Allegations."
He demonstrated a hearty, animated defense of Ubaid Al-Jabiree
while astonishingly enough he himself (i.e. Muhammad bin
Haadee) acknowledges in the beginning of his response to the
questioner that he does not know of this speech (i.e. the matters in
which were criticized against Ubaid Al-Jabiree) I ask the noble
readers then Is it considered to be justice for someone who does
not no of a matter to refer to it as false or falsehood not once or
twice but eight times in a two minute audio? And Allah's aid is
sought.
While seeming enough he mentions the merits and virtues of
Ubaid Al-Jabiree, though this besides the question posed to him
and a person having good deeds does not necessitate that he can
not fall into error.
In addition, the brothers at (SPUBS) mentioned several
Mashaaykh and students of knowledge may Allah grant them
success- who do not agree with the criticisms made against Ubaid

20

Al-Jabiree for one reason or another. However, the matter is to be


returned to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of his Messenger
sallahu alahi wa salam so as to see if these criticisms against
Ubaid Al-Jabiree are valid or not.
I take this opportunity to mention to the noble readers some of the
errors criticized against Ubaid Al-Jabiree which he has fallen into
in order for the noble readers to know that these are not "harsh
criticisms" or "insufficient" or "invalid" as our brothers at Maktabah
Salafiyah assumed.
 His staunch, unceasing defense of the hizbees who were the
cause of this fitnah between him and Shaykh Yahya whom he
considers from his *confidants. The likes of Abdurahman AlAdnee, his brother Abdullah, Haani bin Buraik, Arafat AlMuhammadi as so on. (*Ubaid describes the aforementioned
hizbees as his confidants can be found in his article Annqd
Assaheeh.)
 His slandering and warning against Ahlus-Sunnah in Damaaj.
 His summoning Ahlus-Sunnah to involve themselves in
elections.
 His religious verdict that is permissible to work in environment
where intermixing occurs as well as studying in such an
environment.
 His religious verdict that it is permissible to view certain
cartoons.
 His religious verdict that it is permissible to appear on television.
 His religious verdicts that if the government of a particular

country does not allow you to give dawah except that you are part
of an organization then it is permissible to work with the people of
innovation in this particular scenario.
 His ill-speech of Ka'ab bin Malik and Shubah bin Hajaaj.
 His belittlement of all Libyans and Algerians by referring to them
as donkeys except whom Allah has mercy on from amongst them.

21

 His religious verdict for the permissibility of curing sorcery with


sorcery if the one who performed the bewitching is the one who
will cure it.
 His praise of the deviant hizbee Saalih Al-Bakry and
recommendation of him for those seeking knowledge to benefit
from him.
 His religious verdict that Birmingham is Darul-Hijrah.
These are some of the errors which have occurred from Ubaid AlJabiree may Allah rectify his condition and aid him in returning
from his mistakes- Do the brothers at (SPUBS) now deem the
criticism against him to be vague? These errors and others can be
read here:
(http://aloloom.net/vb/showthread.php?t=2433.)
I would also like to ask who the well-respected scholars of Yemen
are who also do not agree with what has been stated about Ubaid
Al-Jabiree?

SPUBS said:
The question arises: "Is it possible that all of these
mashayikh are mistaken and Shaikh Yahyah is correct?"
The answer is: "Yes it is possible." This is why many of
these mashayikh actually looked into the criticisms
presented against Shaikh Ubaid, and we likewise looked
into this criticism - then these scholars (and following
them, ourselves) came to the conclusion that the 'proofs'
brought were not sufficient and/or were invalid and thus
not legitimate reasons for such harsh criticisms of Shaikh
Ubaid such that he be removed from the ranks of
Salafiyyah, abandoned, labelled a hizbee, be abused and
belittled and called loathsome names!
Though the response to this paragraph has passed previously I
again repeat the answer so that the noble readers are upon clarity
in this imperative matter.

22

It has come to pass that if a scholar of hadeeth, who is wellacquainted with the reasons why an individual may be disparaged,
criticizes a specific person while manifesting the basis of his
criticism then what he has stated takes precedence over all
general recommendation that the one who has been criticized may
previously have.
This is the general principle that is well-known and is found in the
books that contain principles of "Jarh wa T'adeel" likes of
"Nukbatul-Fikir" of Ibn Hajr "Al-Iqtiraah" of Ibn Daqeeq Al-'eed,
"Tadreeb Arraawi" of Assuyuti Al-Kifaaya of Khateeb Al-Baghdaadi
and others. However, some the scholars have excluded from this
important principle two scenarios:
1. That Al-Mu'adil (the scholar giving the recommendation) says
for example " I am aware of the reason for the criticism however,
he has repented from it and his repentance has been seen to be
sincere.
2. That Al-Mu'adil (the scholar giving the recommendation) rejects
and disapproves of the disparagement of the one criticizing in an
accredited manner that indicates without doubt the invalidity
of the disparagement and that the one criticism is mistaken.
As if the one disparaging was to say "verily so and so killed so and
so on such and such a day." Then (Al-Mu'adil) says (in reply to
this accusation) I saw him alive (i.e. the one whom it was said
about him that he had been killed on such and such a day) after
that day". (Refer to "Thawaabit Al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel" pg.44)
Therefore, the writers claim that after looking into the criticisms
made against Shaykh Ubaid they came to the conclusion that
the 'proofs' brought were not sufficient and/or were
invalid and thus not legitimate reasons for such harsh
criticisms of Shaikh Ubaid.. will only be accepted from them
following the two previously mentioned exemptions stated by
Ahlul-'ilm as to when the recommendation of Al-Mu'adil will be
given priority over the explained disparagement.
Therefore, an appeal is made to the brothers at (SPUBS) for them
to make clear the angle of error in the criticisms made against
Ubaid Al-Jabiree may Allah rectify his condition- or where he has
repented from his errors following the clear principles of AhlusSunnah which have come to pass. Otherwise, their incapability to
23

do so will only attest to their self-involvement in matters which are


beyond their capacity.
As for the scholars and students of knowledge may Allah grant
them success- that the members of Al-Maktabah Assalifiyah
affirmed to have looked into the criticisms made against Ubaid AlJabiree also deeming them to be harsh and invalid. Then the
abovementioned principles also apply to their statements that
indicate their disapproval of those criticisms if in fact their position
is as the Makatabah stated.
Whereas it is also kindly requested from the brothers at (SPUBS)
to bring forth from evidence that which clearly denotes that these
scholars and students of knowledge may Allah grant them
success- have come across the mistakes that Ubaid Al-Jabireemay Allah better his condition- has fallen into the likes of what
have been mentioned previously in this article and still say the
'proofs' brought were not sufficient and/or were invalid
and thus not legitimate reasons for such harsh criticisms
of Shaikh Ubaid. As doing so will show their honesty since
Allah has tied the bringing forth of evidence to be a sign
truthfulness in his statement:




64:
Bring forth your proofs, if you are truthful."
While on the other hand failure to do so will prove to the noble
readers that the brothers at (SPUBS) are currently treading a path
similar to that of the people of deviation as deception is from their
clear signs by which they are known.

SPUBS said:
This of-course did not necessitate that at any stage the
Maktabah criticized or attacked Shaikh Yahyah himself,
rather the Maktabah respectfully disagreed with
his stance.
Though the writers claim that their disagreement was a respectful
one and did not necessitate at any stage that they criticized or
attacked Shaykh Yahya himself. The reality of the matter is some
24

of the brothers at the Maktabah were indeed criticizing Shaykh


Yahya as can be read here:
http://aloloom.net/vb/showthread.php?t=8812
While others from amongst them were advising from studying in
Damaaj as can be found here:
http://aloloom.net/vb/showthread.php?t=9077
Yet others amongst them claim that
Shaykh Yahya has mistakes in aqeedah and have as a proof for
their allegation a deplorable article written by Arafaat AlMuhammadi the hizbee who is from the associates of Abdurahman
Al-Adnee which is replete with manipulation of Shaykh Yahya's
speech in order to produce something to refute. A sufficient
response to this trivial article was written by the brother Abu
Mus'ab Hussein Al-Hajooree and can be found at
www.aloloom.net.
Recently, there was an article placed on:
http://www.salafitalk.com/threads/28...o-Dammaaj-NEW:on
titled:
Shaikh Rabee regarding going to Dammaj-New
Further showing that this "respectful disagreement" of (SPUBS) is
in fact nothing more than a ruse and Allah's aid is sought.
Furthermore, there have been a few times when brothers have
sought advice from some of the members of (SPUBS) in seeking
knowledge in Damaaj and have been diverted away from doing so
long before Shaykh Yahya-may Allah preserve him- mentioned a
word of criticism against them.
Therefore, this is another incorrect claim from the Maktabah similar
to many which have come to pass in this article and is another
example of deception on their part we ask Allah to guide them to
the straight path and to rectify our condition and theirs.

SPUBS said:
However, this respectful disagreement was not accepted by
some of the fanatical youth who then embarked upon a
25

concerted effort to disparage and discredit the manhaj


and da'wah of the Maktabah writing pages of futile
accusations to support their own falsehood. The mere
disagreement with Shaikh Yahyah for these youth
necessitates that those who differ with them are upon
hizbiyyah and misguidance!
Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we will return. The
following paragraphs contain more injustice and deceit and Allah's
aid is sought in clarifying these mispresentations to the noble
readers.
Firstly, it has come to pass that there was no "respectful
disagreement" by some members of the Maktabah.
Secondly, no one embarked nor gave a concerted effort to
discredit the Maktabah and towards the beginning of this article the
sequence of events that eventually resulted in Shaykh Yahya's
criticism of the Makatabah have also been mentioned therefore,
whomsoever would like to understand how things transpired then
let him return to the top of the article and I suffice myself with this
from repetition.
Furthermore, someone reading the article written by (SPUBS)
may indeed believe that the whole reason they were criticized was
merely due to their disagreement with what was being stated about
Ubaid Al-Jabiree may Allah better his condition- though the error
in this has also been clarified and praise is due to Allah the
questions that present themselves are:
Why are the brothers at (SPUBS) making this the root of all
criticisms against them?
And why did they choose to headline this article of theirs in these
recent times when Shaykh Yahya spoke about them months ago?
What is apparent to be the answer to both questions is quite
obvious for anyone who genuinely looks into this matter and is
aided by Allah in seeing the truth. The brothers at (SPUBS) know
well that there were many things criticized against them beyond
the matter of Ubaid Al-Jabiree while many people might not know
this.

26

Therefore, when they came across an audio of certain mashaaykh


openly defending Ubaid Al-Jabiree and referring to what Shaykh
Yahya may Allah preserve him- stated about him as falsehood
they tied themselves to this and to make it the foundation of all
criticisms against their non-acceptance of the criticisms made
against Ubaid Al-Jabiree claiming that whoever criticizes them for
this must also criticize these mashaaykh as well. They so candidly
stated in their article:
"And if you do not accept the refutations of Shaikh Yahyah
(and others aligned to Dammaaj) against these
mashayikh, then you likewise cannot accept his criticisms
against the Maktabah, simply due to the fact that the
Maktabah is united in its manhaj with these Shaikhs as
well as ShaikhRabee' and others."
However, this will have no avail for them and trickery and deceit
will only become exposed sooner or later as Allah the Most high
has stated:



18 :
Nay, We fling truth against the falsehood, so it destroys it, and
behold, it (i.e. the falsehood) has vanished.
And he said:




81 :
Verily, Allh does not set right the work of Al-Mufsidn (the evildoers, corrupts, etc.).
Furthermore, the brothers at (SPUBS) claim that the articles
written against them are in support of falsehood, while their
statement:

SPUBS said:

27

The mere disagreement with Shaikh Yahyah for these


youth necessitates that those who differ with them are
upon hizbiyyah and misguidance!
Is drowning in falsehood and is in need of repentance to Allah. If
this statement was indeed true then many if not all the of the
Salafiyoon today would be upon hizbiyah and misguidance and
who in their right mind would believe such senseless pretense.
For without a doubt no scholar is infallible as for their statement to
be followed in everything they say. Rather this outlandish claim
would also necessitate that these brothers themselves who
criticized (SPUBS) to be upon hizbiyah and misguidance as they
definitely disagree with Shaykh Yahya in certain issues that the
Salafus-Salih had differed in. The members of (SPUBS) in this
article have several times attempted to deceive the readers which
is the same matter that they are supposedly warning against and
how wonderful as words of advice is the statement of Allah the
Most High with regard to the prophet Shuaib:








88 :
I wish not, in contradiction to you, to do that which I forbid you
(from doing)
As well as the statement of Imam Assfaareeni

The one who commits that which he forbids (the people from)
Then he has come with that which calls for astonishment
Only if he would have begun with his soul and prevented it
From its deviation then verily he would have benefited it (his soul).

SPUBS said:
This quite justified stance of the Maktabah
(in not taking a position against Shaykh Ubayd) angered
the young and foolish blind-followers who went to
extremes in cursing the scholars and took it upon
themselves to refute, abuse and attack the Mashayikh and

28

the Maktabah and some of the students of knowledge who


deliver duroos in the West.
This paragraph contains much delusion and many questions arise
from it that require answering however, before I put forward to the
writers several questions related to this paragraph of theirs which
they must present their evidences for. I would like to point out that
(SPUBS) due to a high level of self-importance or inattentiveness
in the previous paragraph stated that the reason why they were
attacked, why the scholars were cursed and why the
Mashaykh as well as some of the well-known students of
knowledge from the West were refuted and abused their quite
justified stance in not taking a position against Shaykh Ubaid.
As if this fitnah almost in its entirety revolves around (SPUBS) and
their so-called "justified position" and to Allah we belong and to
Him we will return.
Returning to the questions I say the writers differentiated between
the scholars and the mashayakh for some reason, so who are the
scholars who were attacked and who were the mashaykh who
were refuted?
Or is this an attempt to make things bigger than they really are?
Furthermore who are the students of knowledge from the West
other than yourselves who were also refuted and attacked
because of the Maktabah's "justified position"?
Kindly answer these question so that the readers can be upon
clarity with regard to your statements as this vagueness and lack
of clarity as to whom you are referring leaves the readers in
confusion. Barakallahu Feekum.

SPUBS said:
Indeed Shaikh Yahyah himself used to praise the
Maktabah until the differences arose between himself and
Shaikh Ubaid al-Jaabiree - there is nothing that the
Maktabah has done differently (with respect to the Salafi
manhaj) between the time the Maktabah was praised by
Shaikh Yahyah and between the time the hate-mongers
amongst the youth carried tales to him in order to
encourage him to speak against the Maktabah.

29

Firstly, connecting Shaykh Yahya's criticism of the Makatabah to


the differences that arose between them is incorrect if your intent
by this is it makes it the sole reason for his criticism. However, if
you intend by your statement that Shaykh Yahya's may Allah
preserve him- criticism of the Makatabah occurred at a time when
Ubaid Al-Jabiree-may Allah rectify his condition- had already
begun his unjustified denunciation and warnings of Shaykh Yahya
and his students in Damaaj then this is correct.
Secondly, Shaykh Yahya's praise of (SPUBS) was due to what he
knew of them from goodness and their efforts in calling to the
Sunnah therefore the Shaykh seemingly remained having goodthoughts about the brothers at (SPUBS). However, when the
mistakes that they were involved in reached the Shaykh he then
spoke in disparagement of (SPUBS). In addition, if these mistakes
were to have reached Shaykh Yahya years ago then the result
would likely be the same and would have lead to his
disparagement of (SPUBS). Furthermore, the mere praise of
Shaykh Yahya for the Maktabah does
not necessitate that they are free from error or upon steadfastness
rather this indicates what the Shaykh himself knows about them
and from the established principles of Ahlus-Sunnah is the one
who knows (of a matter) is an authoritative source over the
one who knows not.
Therefore even if Shaykh Yahya was to praise and give
recommendation to (SPUBS) today with no change or repentance
from them with regard to their mistakes by Allah, this would not aid
them in the least. The Maktabah's claim that nothing has changed
between the time Shaykh Yahya praised them up until the
differences between him and Shaykh Ubaid occurred is also
untrue. Let the noble readers return to the article "Unveiling the
Deceptions Behind in Defense of the Scholars" and "Victory of the
Lord of Creation" to see the undeniable errors that (SPUBS) have
either fallen into of late that Shaykh Yahya also clarified in his
response to a question from Britain which can be read here
(http://www.sh-yahia.net/show_sound_713.html).
These obvious errors which (SPUBS) sadly refer to as:
pages of futile carried tales, sufficient deception,
accusations to support their own falsehood lies, as well as
exaggerations and fabrications.

30

Do you mean to tell the noble readers that every single thing
criticized against (SPUBS) is a lie or exaggeration. Fear Allah,
indeed Fear Allah. Subhanallah. I remind the brothers at (SPUBS)
of the hadeeth of the Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam reported
by Abu Dawood (3599) and others on the authority of Ibn Umr that
he sallahu alahi wa salam said:


And whomsoever quarrels in falsehood while he knows this he will
not cease to remain in the anger of Allah until he retracts
While Imam Al-Bukhari chaptered in his Saheeh

:
Chapter: The sin of the one who argues in falsehood while he
knows.
Take heed of this severe warning mentioned in this hadeeth and
let not the shaitan adorn for you your actions of error and in turn
delude you from the truth.

SPUBS said:
So these foolish youth, who wish only to fan the flames of
dispute between the people of Sunnah, embarked upon
discrediting the Maktabah through lies, exaggerations and
fabrications
Imam Al-Bukhari (568) and Muslim (287) reported in his Saheeh
as well as others the following hadeeth.
Narrated Usama bin Zaid: Allah's Apostle sent us towards AlHuruqa, and in the morning we attacked them and defeated
them. I and an Ansari man followed a man from among them
and when we took him over, he said, "La ilaha illal-Lah." On
hearing that, the Ansari man stopped, but I killed him by
stabbing him with my spear. When we returned, the Prophet
came to know about that and he said, "O Usama! Did you kill
him after he had said "La ilaha ilal-Lah?" I said, "But he said
so only in fear of my weapon." The Prophet said " why then
did you not split open his heart so that you may know if he
31

said it for that reason (i.e. fearing the sword) or not" And he
(i.e. the Messenger) kept on repeating that so often that I
wished I had not embraced Islam before that day.
Imam Annawawi said in his explanation of the hadeeth:
And his statement sallahu alahi wa salam "why then did you not
split open his heart so that you may know if he said it (i.e. la ilaha
illallah fearing the sword) or not". This means you have only
been compelled with acting by what is apparent as well as
what the tongue utters as for the heart then there is no path
for you to known what is in it". -up until he said- Therefore
solely restrict yourself to (what is apparent upon) the tongue
and do not seek other than it. Sharh Saheeh Muslim 2/104.
While Shaykh Abdul-Mushin Al-Abbad said in his explanation of
the previous hadeeth also found in Sunan Abi Dawood may Allah
grant him success and preserve him upon the SunnahAnd his statement sallahu alahi wa salam "why then did you not
split open his heart so that you may know if he said it for that
reason (i.e. fearing the sword) or not". Here he (sallahu alahi wa
salam) rebuked him and made it clear to him that the likes of
this (matter) is from Umoor Al-Ghaib (the unseen matters) and
Al-Ghaib (the unseen) no one is capable of looking into or
knowing it besides Allah and no one knows what is in the
hearts except Allah. Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood 14/161
We benefit from the previous hadeeth and its explanation that it is
not for us to speak about matters which lie in the hearts of the
Muslims and that we should only act according to what they say or
manifest to us as the explanations of these two great scholars
indicate. Therefore, the allegation of the writers "So these foolish
youth, who wish only to fan the flames of dispute between
the people of Sunnah." Clearly goes against the understanding
of this hadeeth as this statement of theirs necessitates the reason
why they the people are writing these articles is only to fan the
flames of dispute between the people of Sunnah which is a
judgment from (SPUBS) on what remains hidden in the hearts of
the people.
We ask the members of (SPUBS) to implement the meaning of this
hadeeth upon themselves and restrict themselves to what is
manifest and appears on the tongues of the Muslims and not to
judge what is in their hearts.
32

Those possessing little understanding may reply in defense of


(SPUBS) "the brothers at (SPUBS) only judged what was apparent
to them from the actions of the people who have written articles of
advise or refutation against them."
However, this understanding is in clear opposition to the correct
understanding of the hadeeth which is that we have been
compelled with acting upon what is apparent to us from the
tongue of the speaker not what we may assume is in his
heart. Being that Usaamah bin Zaid may Allah be pleased with
him- when he gouged the man who had said "la ilaha illallah" only
did so acting upon what was apparent to him from this man which
was that this man had only said so fearing death. Therefore, the
brothers who have written articles of advise or criticism against
(SPUBS) have expressed the reasons why they have done so and
not once do we have from them that they have manifested that
they have written these articles in an attempt to spark flames of
controversy" or " That they have written these treatises in an effort
to cause discord between Ahlus-Sunnah." Or anything of the sort
therefore, we must remain upon what they have said and not seek
what is in their hearts as this is not permissible.

SPUBS said:
..embarked upon discrediting the Maktabah through lies,
exaggerations and fabrication just as they had done with
the Mashayik previously - and that is why Shaikh Rabee'
correctly described them as 'infiltrators' amongst the ranks
of the Salafis
Since the matter pertaining to (SPUBS) claim that everything said
about them is lies and exaggerations then there is no need for
repetition. However, that which is of importance in this particular
paragraph is their statement just as they had done with the
Mashayik previously. Who are these Mashayik who have been
lied about and that exaggerations have been made against them.
The main setback that I have come across in (SPUBS) article is
that they continually refer to individuals or matters which have
occurred in a manner which is unclear. Therefore this leaves the
reader not clearly understanding who or what is being referred to
or what this matter actuality is. This writing style which they have
33

adopted is quite similar to that of the journalists in the West in its


lack of clarity and is not productive nor is it in accordance to Allah's
statement:

70-71 :
O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allh and fear Him, and
speak upright statements.
71. He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive
you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allh and His Messenger
(Sal-Allaahu 'alayhe Wa Sallam) he has indeed achieved a great
achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to
enter Paradise).
Ibn Katheer said in his elucidation of the previous ayah: Allah the
Most High says while ordering his believing slaves to fear him and
to worship Him the worship of someone who (is capable of) seeing
Him and that they say correct words i.e. upright containing no
crookedness and (He) promised them that if they did this that he
would reward them by correcting their actions i.e. that he would
grant them success (in doing) righteous deeds and that He would
forgive them of their past sins and whatever (sins) that may occur
from them in the future He would inspire them in repenting from
them.
Or the hadeeth that has come on the authority of 'Aisha -may Allah
be pleased with her- where she said "The speech of the
Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam was decisive speech whoever
heard it would understand it. The hadeeth was reported by Abu
Dawood (4839) and Al-Albaani declared it to be hasan (sound).
.

Imam Al-Munaawi said in his explanation of this hadeeth "his


speech (sallahu alahi wa salam) was decisive." i.e. well-defined
between truth and falsehood up until he said- and in brief this
means that (the speech of the Messenger) was clear in meaning
and not obscure to anyone, rather it was understood by anyone
who heard it whether they were Arab or non-Arab. This being due
to its clarity and (his) elaboration of the letters and wording and
capability of explicating the speech and clarifying it. (Fayd AlQadeer 5/103)

34

Therefore the brothers at (SPUBS) should reject and abandon this


blameworthy writing style which is in opposition to the previous
Ayah and Hadeeth. While they should also select for themselves a
manner of writing which clearly depicts to the readers who or what
is being intended by their speech.
As for (SPUBS) holding unto the statement of Shaykh Rabee'
may Allah keep him steadfast upon the Sunnah and grant him
success- then the speech of the Shaykh is specific to whoever lies
and fabricates things however, what has been criticized against
Ubaid Al-Jabiree and Doctor Abdullah Al-Bukhari and their likes
may Allah rectify our condition and theirs- are clear matters of
error and not lies and fabrications as (SPUBS) continues to allege.
Therefore, again we notice craftiness on the part of the writers as
they take the speech of the Shaykh and apply it to the students in
Damaaj. Where did Shaykh Rabee' mention that the students in
Damaaj who have refuted (SPUBS) or Ubaid Al-Jabiree are
'infiltrators' amongst the ranks of the Salafis? Rather, there
is no such speech and this is mere manipulation of Shaykh
Rabee's statements for their own goals and agendas and they
must fear Allah.
Furthermore, even if what (SPUBS) attributed to Shaykh Rabee'may Allah grant him success- was true it would not necessitate
that the students who truthfully clarified the mistakes of Ubaid AlJabiree would in fact be infiltrators amongst the Salafis because of
this. Rather the one who is known to clarify the mistakes of the
people whether they are scholars or not and his intent by this is to
warn the people so that they are not deceived by these errors then
this action of his is indeed commendable and praiseworthy.
Al-Hafidh Ibn Rajb Al-Hanbali said in his notable book (Al-Farq
bayna An-Naseeha wat-Ta'yeer Pg.7) while elaborating upon the
reasons why one may refute or criticize a scholar he said:
However if his intent in this (i.e. the one mentioning the errors of
the scholars) is solely to clarify the truth so that the people are
not deceived by the viewpoints of the one who has erred in
his statements then there is no doubt that he is rewarded for
his intention and he enters by this action of his and this
intention (of clarifying the truth) into being sincere to Allah,
his Messenger and the rulers of the Muslims as well as the
35

common folk. And likewise if one clarifying the mistake is small


or big then he has a example in the scholars who rebutted the
standpoints of Ibn Abbas may Allah be pleased with him- which
he stood alone with and were criticized against him by the Ulema
(these standpoints being the) likes of Al-Mut'a and As-Sarf and Al'Umratain and others.( Whereas he may Allah be pleased with
him- afterwards retracted from some of these standpoints)
In addition, the clarification of an error which occurs from either a
scholar or a layman is something desired. Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn
Taymiyah while clarifying the difference between the error of the
scholars and the prophets he said as can be found in the
(Majm'oo Al-Fatwa 19/123)
"For verily the prophets peace be upon them are immune from
remaining upon an error, contrary to a single (individual) from the
scholars and the rulers. For verily he is not immune to this (i.e.
persisting upon an error) and for this reason it is permissible
rather it is obligatory that we clarify the truth which must be
followed even if there may be in this (action), the clarification
of the fault of the one who has made a mistake from the
scholars and the rulers.

SPUBS said:
Alhamdulillaah, only a handful
of riffraff and rabble followed them in their cursing and
abusing the Scholars and the Maktabah. Their reply then
became: "Its not about numbers, its about the truth, we
don't care for numbers." In response, it is said: "Indeed it is
about the truth, but you neither have the truth, nor the
numbers!" And the Salafis
almost as a whole in the UK, Canada and the USA have
refused to accept the exaggerations and lies of the youth
and their attacks upon the likes of Shaikh Ubaid alJaabiree, Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee and Shaikh alBukhaaree.
Imam Assa'di may Allah have mercy on him- in his elucidation of
the story of Nuuh 'alahi salaam and the benefits that may be taken
from it in his book "Tayseer Al-Lateef Al-Manaan fi Khulaasati
Tafseer Al-Quraan" pgs. 335-337) said:

36

27:
Nor do we see that any follow you but the lowliest from among us,
who are in judgment immature
And from that which is known to every sensible (person) is
that the truth is known to be truth on its own accord (and) not
by those who follow it.
While the Shaykh said in another place explaining the statement of
the people of Nuuh alahi salam:





27:
And we do not see in you any merit above us
Does this statement of theirs contain the slightest amount of justice
in one way or another for indeed they are only informing about
their own selves. Then, it is possible that this statement of their is
what is in their hearts (i.e. their statement "and we do not see any
bounty for you above us.") While it is also possible that they are
saying that which they do not believe. And in any of the two
cases then it is mandatory that Al-Haq (the Truth) is accepted
whether it is said by the superior or the inferior, Al-Haq (the
Truth) is above everything.
Therefore, the statement of (SPUBS) In response, it is said:
"Indeed it is about the truth, but you neither have the
truth, nor the numbers!" must be looked into in accordance to
the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of his Messenger and not
merely because of what they may perceive to be the truth. Rather
the evidences and facts brought forward should be the criteria and
standard in ruling something to be of truth or falsehood.
The students in Damaaj as well as in the noble brothers in the
West who have written or translated articles to clarify how this
fitnah occurred and who was at fault and transgressed beyond
bounds, then their statements and claims are based upon and
backed with proofs and evidences that establish their point.

37

Furthermore, why is it that the defence of (SPUBS) of Ubaid AlJabiree and Doctor Abdullah Al-Bukhari is deemed to be truth that
must be accepted while they have clearly erred in their attacks
against Damaaj and its students so much so that Shaykh Muqbil
may Allah have mercy on him- was not safe from the tongue of
Abdullah Al-Bukhari. While the clarifications written by the
students in Damaaj or the brothers currently residing in the West
are considered cursing and abusing the Scholars?!! Where is
the justice in this?

SPUBS said:
The very
same accusations they made against Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh
Rabee' and Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee, they
proceeded to make against the Maktabah - then they
spread the speech, "The Shaikhs of Dammaaj and Shaikh
Yahyah warn refuted the Maktabah" - By Allaah! If the
Maktabah has been attacked alongside
these beloved Mashayikh, then it is an honour for the
Maktabah to be aligned with
them!
The writers again here continue in their endless attempts to
swindle the readers into accepting their baseless claims have tied
themselves to the listed mashakhy and claim the very
same accusations they made against Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh
Rabee' and Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee, they
proceeded to make against the Maktabah. However if justice
and truth is in fact their goal they would ask themselves:
When did anyone ever accuse Shaykh Rabee'-may Allah grant him
success- or even Doctor Muhammad bin Haadi of begging the
people for their money in the most degrading and appalling of
manner which clearly goes against the teachings of the Quraan
and Sunnah?
When were any of them also accused of allowing pictures and
coming on television?
When did anyone accuse any of them having a Jam'eeyah ( a
charity organization) which is from the clearest signs of hizbiyah?

38

When were they accused of attending and giving conferences


where the men and women can clearly see each other?
Then (SPUBS) made their oath - By Allaah! If the Maktabah
has been attacked alongside
these beloved Mashayikh, then it is an honour for the
Maktabah to be aligned with
them.
Without the slightest mention as to what or why Ubaid Al-Jabiree
may Allah better his condition- and those with him were actually
refuted.
So does it please (SPUBS) to be aligned with Ubaid Al-Jabiree in
errors which were previous listed?
Does (SPUBS) consider it an honour to be alongside Abdullah AlBukhari in his attacks upon Damaaj and even Shaykh Muqbil?
Is it also an honour for (SPUBS) to hear the attacks of Muhammad
bin Haadi against Shaykh Yahya may Allah preserve him- where
he said "He (Shaykh Yahya) is worse than Faalih Al-Harbi the
deviant who treads the path of Al-Hadaadiyah as well as his other
statements?
How similar their testimony is to what Allah mentions in his
glorious Book:



130 :
"We bear witness against ourselves." It was the life of this world
that deceived them.
By-Allah it is only an honour to be alongside the one who is
wrongly refuted and attacked due to his defence of the truth and
the religion of Allah the Most High.
Furthermore, this statement is in opposition to the hadeeth of the
messenger sallahu alahi wa salam found in Al-Bukhari (2312) on
the authority of Anas bin Malik where he said:
"Aid your brother the oppressor or the oppressed they said we will
aid him if he is oppressed, but how can we help him if he is the
oppressor so he replied "prevent him from oppressing."

39

Therefore, it is upon (SPUBS) to aid the one being oppressed and


stop the oppressor from his injustice whether he is a scholar or
laymen. Along with it is not befitting for them to align themselves
with the one being unjust and oppressive as this is from "Atta'sub
Al-Mamquut" (detested fanaticism) which Al-Imaam Muhammad
bin Abdul-Wahab Annajdi may Allah have mercy upon himmentioned in his beneficial book "Masaail Al-Jahiliyah"
(The affairs of the people of pre-Islamic ignorance) when he said:
The Ninety Third Matter
Detested Fanaticism
The detested fanaticism of a person for his group upon truth and
falsehood was an inescapable matter with them (the people of preIslamic ignorance) and so Allah mentioned about them what he
mentioned.
While Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzan in his explanation of the book
"Masaail Al-Jahiliyah pg.175" said "Detested fanaticism is
persisting upon falsehood with knowledge of its falseness in
arrogance, stubbornness and in aiding a person or a tribe upon
truth or falsehood and this is from the matters of jahiliyah (preIslamic ignorance).
Therefore, the obvious inclination of (SPUBS) towards Ubaid AlJabiree and the two doctors Abdullah Al-Bukhari and Muhammad
bin Haadi may Allah rectify their conditions-in the current on
goings while the known well of their opposition and transgression
towards Shaykh Yahya his students and even Shaykh Muqbil will
not aid them in the least but will only be harmful to them if they
only knew and is a sign that (SPUBS) are treading a path of
"Atta'sub Al-Mamquut" (detested fanaticism) which was mentioned
previously another clear sign of this is their statement Do you also
now accept the refutations of Shaikh Yahyah against
Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee and Shaikh Abdullaah alBukhaaree and the criticisms that are now being made
against even Shaikh Rabee?! If you do, then count us
from being amongst them in their positions. We have
been ordered to follow that which Allah has sent down to his
Messenger and to refrain from anything which opposes it as Allah
has said:








"
40

2 :
Follow what has been sent down unto you from your Lord (the
Qur'n and Prophet Muhammad's Sunnah), and follow not any
Auliy' (protectors and helpers, etc. who order you to associate
partners in worship with Allh), besides Him (Allh). Little do you
remember!
Shaykh Ul-Islaam after mentioning the previous ayah said in its
elucidation "therefore He (Allah) ordered with adherence to that
which He sent down ( i.e. the Quraan and Sunnah) and He
prohibited from whatsoever is in opposition to this, this being the
following of the Awliyaa (protectors and supporters) other than
Him, for whoever does not follow one follows the other (i.e.
whoever does not follow what Allah has sent down
consequently the Awliyaa other than Allah). Majmoo' AlFataawa 7/173.
While his student Muhammad bin Abi Bakr well-known as Ibn AlQayim Al-Jawziyah said in his clarification of the meaning of the
ayah in his book "Zaad Al-Muhajir" pg.45"
"For Allah subhanahu commanded (the creation) with adherence
to what He sent down upon His Messenger and forbade that
anything other than it be followed.
Therefore there is nothing between the adherence to what has
been sent down and the following of the Awliyaa other than Him.
For indeed He has not made a mediator between the two
(matters), thus everyone who does not adhere to the wahiy
(revelation) in actuality follows falsehood and he follows the
Awliyaa other than Allah and this (matter) by the praise of
Allah is manifest not obscure".
Let this be an advice to the members of (SPUBS) to adhere to
what Allah has sent down and to continually make this the criteria
by which the truth and falsehood is known. In addition, I also
advise them to return the matter of this fitnah from its
commencement up until now to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah
of his Messenger sallahu alahi wa salam as to see who is upon the
truth and who is not and let not your love or reverence of a
specific individual hinder you from accepting the truth when it
appears.
41

SPUBS said:
We ask those who carry and spread the attacks against the
Maktabah (that have emanated from Shaikh Yahyah and
some students from Dammaaj) around the world seeking
to recruit hate-mongers:

The stance of (SPUBS) towards the clarification of Shaykh Yahya


as well as the students in Damaaj is very pessimistic. Would you
like then for your mistakes to be left without mention and no
admonishment or reprimand. If this is indeed what your soul's
desire then Allah the Most High has said in his Book:

110
You [true believers in Islmic Monotheism, and real followers of
Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the
best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'rf
(i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm has ordained) and
forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islm has
forbidden), and you believe in Allh.
Imam Al-Qurtubi said in his explanation of the ayah:






you enjoin Al-Ma'rf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm has
ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that
Islm has forbidden)
(This statement of Allah) )Is a praise for this Ummah as long as
they are dutiful in this (commanding the good and forbidding the
evil) and are distinguished by this. However, if they abandon the
changing (of evil) and are in unison in (acts of) evil the name of
praise will cease (to be attributed to them) and blameworthy name
will succeed and this will be a reason for their destruction. (AlJaami' li Askaam Al-Quraan 1/25).

42

Therefore, the abandonment of this matter of obligation will only


lead to the destruction of this Ummah. Furthermore, (SPUBS) of
all people should known well that not ordering with good and
command evil is what caused Dawood and 'Issa may peace be
upon them- to curse Bani Israaeel. Allah says:


78:
Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed
by the tongue of Dawd (David) and 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam
(Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allh and the
Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds.
Therefore, the clarification of (SPUBS) condition to the people
does not necessitate that this is an attempt to recruit hate mongers
as the previous proofs have clarified.

SPUBS said:
Do you also now accept the refutations of Shaikh Yahyah
against and the criticisms that are now being made
against even Shaikh Rabee?! If you do, then count us from
being amongst them in their positions.
Firstly this paragraph has wrongly been worded by (SPUBS) and
should be worded:
Do you also now accept Shaykh Yahya's self-defense from the
transgressions and injustice of Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee
and Shaikh Abdullaah al-Bukhaaree? Being that they were the
ones who began their vilification and slander of him, anyone who
would like to verify the honesty of this can simply return to:
http://www.aloloom.net/vb/showthread.php?t=9357
Secondly I t think that (SPUBS) will not disagree with me when I
say that Shaykh Rabee' may Allah preserve him and grant him
success- is a human being like all of us, who is not infallible and
can err in his judgement. Verily Allah the Most High says in the
hadeeth qudsi found in Saheeh Muslim on the authority of Abu
Dhar Al-Ghfaari "Verily you all (Jinn and Inns) make mistakes daily
43

and nightly and indeed I forgive all sins so seek my forgiveness so


I may forgive you.
After re-establishing this important fact then it should be known
that Shaykh Yahya advised Shaykh Rabee' may Allah preserve
them both- for his inclination towards those who are known to
Shaykh Yahya may Allah aid him- and others to have caused
fitnah in Yemen and dissension and discord between the scholars
of Sunnah and Shaykh Yahya has brought forward his proofs
evidences in his advise of Shaykh Rabee'. This is what Shaykh
Yahya may Allah preserve him- has been advised against
Shaykh Rabee' may Allah aid him and grant him success- while
maintaining respect and honour for him as can be read here:
http://www.aloloom.net/vb/showthread.php?t=9357
I take another opportunity to clarify to the noble readers that the
scholars are to be revered, loved, aided, prayed for and so on due
to their adherence to the Sunnah of the Messenger and their
defence of the Sunnah as well as their teaching and transmission
of the Sunnah. However, this does not mean they can not err
rather the believe that the scholars are infallible is the believe of
the raafidh for their scholars.
Unfortunately, it has become widespread in the West and other
places to hear statements like "Shaykh so and so said and nothing
comes after his speech" or "No one can criticize Shaykh so and so
because he is an Imaam." While these statements are clearly
erroneous and go against the fundamentals of the Quraan and
Sunnah they have also lead the many of the common people to
believe that they are actually true.
What is actually worse then the circulation of such statements is
that some of the du'aat (callers in the West) are actually the main
cause of this mishap. Not long ago I came across an audio which
was taped many years ago by one of the duaat may Allah grant
him success- which was titled:
"Advice to the People in the West Regarding Jarh wa Ta'deel"
The advice was overall beneficial however, the speaker stated the
principle:

44

The criticism is not accepted against the one who his


(immamah) leadership and ('adaalah) decency have become
widespread.
This principle as he said found in some books of Jarh wa Ta'deel
nevertheless it is an erroneous principle which is totally against
that which the muhadithoon (scholars of hadeeth) were upon and
as our brother Shaykh Sa'eed Da'aas may Allah preserve himstated in his book "Tanzeeh Assalafiyah pg.14
"The first one to mention this principle according to his
knowledge- was Taju-Deen Assubuki who is A'shariy in his creed
in his book "Al-Qaa'idah fij Jarh wa Ta'deel pg.7" Which was an
attempt from him in defending his leaders and those who liken him
from the people of misguidance amongst the A'shairah and
Soofiyah". Whereas, the scholars of hadeeth before and after
Assubuki did not add the likes of his statement to the principles of
Jarh wa Ta'deel.
Al-Imaam Al-Bayhaqi who is from the notaries in sciences of
hadeeth may Allah have mercy on him- chaptered in his book
"Assunan Al- Kubaa 10/124"
Chapter: The criticism is not accepted against the one whose
(a'daalah) decency has been established except that he (the one
disparaging) discloses what he has disparaged because of.
Al-Imam Ibn Abdul-Barr Al-Andalous may Allah have mercy on
him- in his renowned book "Attamheed 2/34" said "A group of the
scholars of fiqh "jurisprudence" as well as the leaders in hadeeth
that possess insight in fiqh and (proper) perception this is their
statement:
It (i.e. the disparagement) is not accepted from Ibn Ma'een or other
than him against those who are renowned for 'ilm (knowledge) and
well-known for it and their 'adalaah has been established as well
as their (good) understanding. Except that the basis that he (i.e.
the one disparaging) is criticizing because of is clarified up
until he said- and it is not correct that anything other than this
is believed nor is it permissible for anything that opposes this
is given consideration.

45

Al-Imam Al-Mu'alimi Al-Yemeni said with regard to this matter in


his book "Attankeel 2/211"
"And whosoever's 'adaalah has been established then his
disparagement is not accepted except with a clear manifest
hujjah (proof/evidence)".
This is a short exhibit of statements and viewpoints of the scholars
of hadeeth and some of the fore-bearers of jarh wa ta'deel- of their
eras- with regard to the criticism of one the who is well-known for
his leadership and devotion to knowledge. It is then noted that
they are in consensus in their statements that if such a
person is criticized then the basis of this criticism must be
clarified. While we also notice that not one of them stated
that he can not be criticized.
Through this we benefit that the principle:
The criticism is not accepted against the one who his
(immamah) leadership and ('adaalah) decency have become
widespread.
Is a clear error which goes against the methodology of AhlulHadeeth and was originally established by a person of innovation
and Allah's aid is sought
Yet another one of the duaat in Britain known as Abu Khadija
may Allah rectify his condition- mentioned in a recent audio of his
while he was addressing the matter of speaking about the
mistakes of the scholars the statement of Al-Imam Ibnul-Assaakir
which is found in his book "Tabyeen Kathib Al-Muftaari Pg.28"
Where he may Allah may Allah have mercy on him- mentioned
the result of those who belittle and defame the scholars. However,
the aforementioned brother made the statement of Ibnul-Assaakir
specific to anyone who speaks about the faults of the scholars
which was not the intent of Ibnul-Assaakir-may Allah have mercy
on him-. Rather the Imam clearly restricted his statement to the
one who defames and slanders the scholars which is not the case
of the one who clarifies their mistakes of a scholar so as the
people are not fooled by it. I have translated the statement of
(Ibnul-Assaakir) for the noble readers to see and judge for
themselves if the statement of the Imam is in accordance to what
the aforementioned brother claimed.
46

The Imam said may Allah have mercy on him-:


Know oh my brother -may Allah make us from those who fear Him
and The flesh of the scholars is poisonous and the Allah's custom
in uncovering those who belittle them is known. And whoever
lets loose his tongue the scholars in defamation Allah will try
him by causing his heart to die before his death...
Let us then leave off these unjustified principles which may lead
to fanaticism and return to the correct principles and foundations
that the scholars have laid down for us. Furthermore, the mere
mention of the errors and mistakes of the scholars so that the
people are aware of them and do not fall into them will not
necessitate that ones heart will die before his death as some have
alleged but is rather praiseworthy if ones intention is correct as the
Imam Ibn Rajb stated.

SPUBS said:
And if you do not accept the refutations of Shaikh Yahyah
(and others aligned to Dammaaj) against these
mashayikh, then you likewise cannot accept his criticisms
against the Maktabah, simply due to the fact that the
Maktabah is united in its manhaj with these Shaikhs as
well as Shaikh Rabee' and others. Additionally Shaikh
Rabee' himself praised these scholars and does not
accept that any one of them be labelled with hizbiyyah or
misguidance.
Most of what is mentioned here has already been addressed in the
previous paragraphs so let the noble reader return to them in order
to see the truth of the matter. Simply mentioning what errors that
(SPUBS) have stated in this paragraph so that the reader is aware.
1. Shaykh Yahya's refutation of the mashayikh and (SPUBS). It
has come to pass that Shaykh Yahya only clarified (SPUBS)'s
errors and defended himself from the verbal assault of Ubaid AlJabiree and those who have sided with him.
2. (SPUBS) connecting themselves to the mashayikh as if the
mistakes criticized against them have also been criticized against
the mashayikh.

47

3. Their claim that their methodology is the same as the mentioned


mashayikh while it is not known that Shaykh Rabee' may Allah
grant him success- condones jameeyat (charity organizations) or
taking pictures of things that things that possess souls or gathering
or seeing elections to be a matter of respected differing or begging
for money in the most debasing of manners and so on and so
forth.
Also their statement that Shaykh Rabee' does not accept that any
one of them be labelled with hizbiyah or misguidance. Allah the
Most High says:




"




"

123 :
It will not be in accordance with your desires (Muslims), nor those
of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), whosoever
works evil, will have the recompense thereof
Allah also says:








56 :
Verily! You (O Muhammad Sal-Allaahu 'alayhe Wa Sallam) guide
not whom you like, but Allh guides whom He wills. And He knows
best those who are the guided.
The ruling then that a person is upon misguidance or has fallen
into hizbiyah returns back to Allah and Messenger sallahu alahi wa
salam and it is not a matter that returns strictly to the judgement of
anyone. If the actions of an individual necessitate that he has
fallen into innovation or misguidance based upon proofs and
evidences then Ahl-'ilm make this ruling based upon substantial
proofs and evidences from the Quraan and Sunnah and if they
disagree with regard to this then the principle of Ahlus-Sunnah that
we have memorized by now Insha'Allah- the detailed criticism
takes precedence of the general recommendation is employed.
Barakallahu feekum.

48

SPUBS said:
Now, some of these foolish youth even question the love
and respect of Salafi Publications for our Shaikh and
father, Muqbil bin Haadee al-Waadi'ee (rahimahullaah)!
Yet the truth is that we never ceased honouring and
defending our beloved Shaikh, the Mujaahid Muqbil bin
Haadee (rahimahullaah) the Maktabah continues to
translate his works and mention him amongst the great
scholars of the era. And the Shaikh himself had nothing
but affection, love and support for the Makatbah
Salafiyyah, he died whilst pleased with the efforts of
the Maktabah. Indeed the brothers from the Maktabah
visited Imaam Muqbil only months before he died
(rahimahullaah), and he was pleased to meet the brothers
as the brothers were honoured to be in his presence as the
Shaikh invited them to remain for dinner. So the Manhaj
and Aqeedah of the Maktabah has not changed over these
years - so since the brothers of the Maktabah have not
changed their Manhaj, it is therefore still upon that which
our father and Shaikh, the Allaamah, Muqbil bin Haadee
(rahimahullaah) saw from them and praised them for,
and none is glorified beyond Allaah. This mention here is
not for the purpose of praise or glorification of alMaktabah as-Salafiyyah, rather it is only to
counter the lies and rumors being spread by those
fanatical youth who claim that al-Maktabah asSalafiyyah does not honour and defend theAllaamah
and Muhaddith, Muqbil bin Haadee al-Waadi'ee
(rahimahullaah).
In these paragraphs the members of Al-Maktabah try to elude from
the fact that there was no defense on their part for Shaykh Muqbil
may Allah have mercy on him- from the defamation of Doctor
Abdullah Al-Bukhari. However the Doctors so called retraction
(which was not a retraction in reality) from his evil statements
against the noble Imam was posted on Salafitalk.net.
(SPUBS) not being able to respond to the fact that they have not up till now- defended Shaykh Muqbil in any justified manner from
false claims of Doctor Abdullah may Allah rectify his conditionhave on the other hand in this article gone in circles by mentioning
their translations of his works and their praise of Shaykh Muqbil
49

may Allah shower him in His mercy- as if this is to be considered a


defence of the noble Shaykh from the atrocious claims of Abdullah
Al-Bukhari and those who are with him in this and to Allah we
belong and to Him we will return
However, when Ubaid Al-Jabiree or Doctor Abdullah's
transgressions' were curbed and were of no avail (SPUBS) posted
the following articles in defence of them:
Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee Defends Shaykh Ubayd - NEW
Shaykh Rabee Defends Shaykhs Muhammad bin Haadee and
Abdullah al-Bukhaaree
Where then is the justice and equity in this and Allah's aid is
sought?!!
I would like to conclude by reminding the brothers at (SPUBS) that
one is raised due to his adherence to the Book of Allah and the
Sunnah of His Messenger. While alternatively one is lowered due
to his opposition to Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His
Messenger. What we have all witnessed recently from (SPUBS) is
clearly a sign of their opposition and the people have begun to
take notice slowly but surely. Therefore, I advise them to take
steps in amending what has occurred from them of error.
However, if they persist upon this path of deception and opposition
in falsehood then this will only harm themselves as Allah has said:



23 :
O mankind! Your rebellion (disobedience to Allh) is only against
your own selves, - a brief enjoyment of this worldly life, then (in the
end) unto Us is your return, and We shall inform you that which
you used to do
We ask Allah to aid the brothers at (SPUBS) in returning to the
truth.
