[1] He is the great scholar of Saudi Arabia, particularly distinguished for his strict adherence to the Sunnah and his stern and rigorous stance against the innovators and modernists of our time. His teachers include the likes of Shaikh Bin Baaz, Al-Albaanee, and the late Muhammad Al-Ameen Ash-Shanqeetee (ra). He has authored various books, many of which explain the methodology (manhaj) of the Muslim in regards to different fields of Islaam. Some of his books translated into English are available, such as "The Reality of Sufism" (by his son Muhammed) and "The Methodology of the Prophets in calling to Allaah". May Allaah preserve him and cause the destructive innovations to perish at his hands. This article was taken from two chapters (pg. 127-153) in his book Manhaj Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah Fee Naqd-ir-Rijaal wal-Kutub wat-Tawaa'if (The Methodology of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah in criticizing individuals, books and groups). Translaled by Isma’eel Ibn al-Arkaan

[2] As-Siyaasiyat-ush-Shar'aiyyah: pg. 123. From another of Ibn Taimiyyah's famous words concerning innovators and fighting against them, is the following: "The one who refutes the innovators is a mujaahid. This is such that Yahyaa Ibn Yahyaa used to say: 'Defending the Sunnah is more virtuous than fighting in Jihaad.'" [Naqd-ul-Mantiq: pg. 12] And he (ra) also said: "So whosoever is a mujaahid in the Way of Allaah, with his tongue, then it is through commanding good and forbidding evil, explaining the Religion, conveying what is found of commands, prohibitions and uprightness in the Qur’aan and Sunnah, clarifying the views that oppose that, and refuting those who oppose the Qur'aan and the Sunnah." [Al-Ihtijaaj Bil-Qadr: pg. 50]

 [15] At-Tamheed (6/118) Also, concerning this long hadeeth of Ka'ab Ibn Maalik in which he and two others refrained from going out to fight with the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) in the expedition of Tabook, Imaam Al-Baghawee said: "There is evidence in this (hadeeth) for abandoning the people of innovation. It is as if the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) feared hypocrisy for Ka'ab and his companions when they refrained from going on the expedition with him. Thus, He (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) commanded that they be abandoned, up to the point that Allaah revealed the confirmation of their repentance and the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) knew of their absolvement. The companions and the scholars of the Sunnah have continued to carry out this (understanding), and they all agree unanimously upon disassociating oneself from the innovators." [Sharh-us-Sunnah (1/227)]

[16] Surat-ut-Tawbah: 6

[17] Al-Adaab-ush-Shara’eeyah (1/232)

[18] As occurs in the hadeeth reported by Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim, in which the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) forbade a Muslim from abandoning (i.e. making Hijrah) from his brother for more than three days, by not talking to him.

[24] Editor’s Note: These last two books are the works of the deviant Ibn ‘Arabee, of whom the scholar declared to be a disbeliever. He is not to be confused with Ibn Al-‘Arabee, who was one of the great scholars of Islaam, particularizing himself with Maalikee Fiqh. Among the several scholars that declared Ibn ‘Arabee to be a disbeliever, was Shaikh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taimiyyah. Thus, it is not permissible to refer to his works for knowledge nor to look towards him for substantiation of ones views. And indeed, we have seen many of the contemporary speakers and callers to Islaam, referencing their statements back to his works and quoting from him, such as is done by Imran Hosein of Trinidad, so be warned!
