The Visit of Shaykh Rabee' to Unayzah

Shaykh Rabee' bin Haadee al-Madkhali (hafidhahullaah) visited Unayzah, the place of residence of Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) this was in the year before the Shaykh passed away (he passed away in January 2001CE). This was after a period of around a decade in which the Qutbiyyah (see Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen on their manhaj in this article, this article and this article) had tried to cause confusion with their attempts to bring the doctrines of Soofee Ash'aris and Mu'tazilis (Bannaa, Qutb, Mawdudi) into the ranks of Ahl us-Sunnah and to turn the rest of the Scholars away from Shaykh Rabee' through lies, rumour-mongering and scaremongering.

The reason?

By the year 2000, most of the Major Scholars alive had warned against this sect of the Khawaarij called the Qutbiyyah, and from its doctrines, and methodologies - even if there occurred from these Scholars something of praise and defense of the heads of these Qutbiyyah many years earlier. The truth was later established, and you can just go and listen to this audio from Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin on Salman al-Awdah and Safar al-Hawali and the people of Takfir, and also Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin's agreement, sanctioning and recommendation of the warning from Sayyid Qutb, his books, and the "Qutbi" Manhaj (see here). And see Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan who also refuted their mass Takfir - following Sayyid Qutb in that - see here andhere just by way of example.

Naturally, these truths enraged the Qutbiyyah, and from that time, to this day of ours, they have not ceased trying, just like the typical cowards they are, of trying to elicit statements from the other Scholars, against Shaykh Rabee', through loaded questions that do not conform to the true realities and we shall address some of them in due course inshaa'Allaah, such as what they are propagating these days of the statement of the muftee Shaykh Abdul-Aziz Aal ash-Shaykh (hafidhahullaah).

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin: Shaykh Rabee' is Upon Salafiyyah, in His Manhaj and in The Actualizing of the Call to Tawheed

This statement here is a destruction of the entire da'wah of the Qutbiyyah and Ikhwaaniyyah, a corroboration of the correctness of Shaykh Rabee's book "Manhaj al-Anbiyaa Fi ad-Da'wah Ilallaah" (Methodology of the Prophets in Calling to Allaah), and a corroboration that when Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin speaks about Salafiyyah not being a hizb, he is not speaking about Shaykh Rabee', but those besides Shaykh Rabee' who are upon other than what Shaykh Rabee' is upon.

Here is the audio:

إننا نحمد الله سبحانه وتعالى أن يسر لأخينا الدكتور ربيع بن هادي المدخلي أن يزور هذه المنطقة حتى يعلم من يخفى عليه بعض الأمور أن أخانا - وفقنا الله وإياه - على جانب من السلفية طريق السلف ، ولست أعني بالسلفية أنها حزب قائم مضاد لغيره من المسلمين ، لكني أريد بالسلفية أنه على طريق السلف في منهجه ولا سيما تحقيق التوحيد ومنابذة من يضاده ، ونحن نعلم جميعاً أن التوحيد هو أصل البعثة التي بعث الله بها رسله عليهم الصلاة والسلام ،،، زيارة أخينا الشيخ ربيع بن هادي إلى هذه المنطقة وبالأخص إلى بلدنا عنيزة لا شك أنه سيكون له أثر ، ويتبين لكثير من الناس ما كان خافياً بواسطة التهويل والترويج وإطلاق العنان للسان . وما أكثر الذين يندمون على ما قالوا في العلماء إذا تبين لهم أنهم على صواب ."

Indeed we praise Allaah, Free is He from all imperfections, the Most High, that He makes it easy for our brother, the Doctor, Rabee' bin Haadee al-Madkhalee to visit this region. [So that] the one to whom certain matters are not apparent may come to know that our brother, may Allaah grant us and him success, is upon Salafiyyah, the way of the Salaf.

So this is a corroboration that Shaykh Rabee' is actually upon the way of the Salaf and not upon other than it, and the Shaykh is praising Allaah for facilitating the visit of Shaykh Rabee' and so the one to whom certain affairs were hidden will become clear to him. Now what were those affairs? Well, affairs of manhaj and the true nature of the call to Allah, the way of the Prophets in actualizing Tawheed - the very same affairs on account of which the Heretical Innovators had spent the previous decade in attacking the Shaykh.

And I do not mean here that Salafiyyah is a hizb (party) which is set up to oppose the Muslims outside of it, but I mean by Salafiyyah, that he (i.e. Shaikh Rabee') is upon the path of the Salaf in his Manhaj. Especially in the field of actualising Tawheed and throwing aside what opposes this [manhaj]. And all of us know tht Tawheed is the basis for which Allaah sent the Messengers upon them be peace and prayers...

There you go. That pretty much annihilates the misapplication of all those other statements of Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin that were being thrown around in which the Shaykh said that Salafiyyah is not a hizb, rather it is manhaj and a way that is followed and traversed and in shunning and throwing aside whatever oppposes it. One that Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin himself was upon when he warned against the Qutbiyyah, the Qutbi Manhaj and its doctrines and its figurehead and his works (see here, here, here, here, here and here). As for when you claim Salafiyyah and you follow other than it, and you set yourself up with doctrines and methodologies to oppose Salafiyyah and to oppose the Muslims, to split their ranks and their hearts (through what is other than Salafiyyah), then that is the hizb that the Shaykh was warning against.

The visit of our brother, Shaikh Rabee bin Haadee to this region, our city, Unaizah, no doubt will have a good effect and it will also become clear to many of the people what used to be hidden from them due to the scare-mongering and rumour-mongering and also letting loose the tongue [of discord].

Just what were these rumours. Who are and where where they coming from? And who are these people, still to this day, trying the same worn out:

Hey Shaykh, there are some real nasty people out there, they are attacking the du'at and the scholars and saying they are misguided, Shaykh, can you give them some advice ... and O by the way, can I just slip in there very quickly as you start your advice, that they are the followers and students of Shaykh Rabee'.

Don't they know that this is the same type of deception played out by the Qutbiyyah in 1991-1992CE (1412H) with Shaykh Bin Baz, before he blackened their faces and rendered them liars and callers to falsehood who stir in the murky waters, when they claimed that a general piece of advice given by the Shaykh to everyone, was directed against the Shaykhs of Madinah in particular (i.e. Shaykh Rabee') - that fadeehah will be documented shortly!

And how numerous are those who are remorseful about what they said concerning the Ulamaa, when it becomes clear to them that they (the Ulamaa) are upon the truth.

We pray that Allaah grants the same success to these people still clinging onto the flotsam in the ocean.

Then one of those present at the gathering said:

ثم قال أحد الحاضرين في الشريط نفسه : هاهنا سؤال حول كتب الشيخ ربيع .

There is a question concerning the books of Shaikh Rabee'?

فأجاب الشيخ العثيمين رحمه الله قائلاً : "الظاهر أن هذا السؤال لا يحتاج لقولي . وكما سئل الإمام أحمد عن إسحاق بن راهوية رحمهم الله جميعاً فقال : مثلي يسأل عن إسحاق ؟! بل إسحاق يسأل عني . وأنا تكلمت في أول كلامي عن الذي أعلمه عن الشيخ ربيع وفقه الله وما زال ما ذكرته في نفسي حتى الآن ، ومجيئه إلى هنا وكلمته التي بلغني عنه ما بلغني لا شك أنه مما يزيد الإنسان محبة له ودعاء له

It is apparently clear that this question is not in need of my answer. And just as Imaam Ahmad was asked about Ishaaq bin Raahawaih - rahimahumullaah - and he replied, "Someone like me is asked about Ishaaq! Rather, Ishaaq is to be asked about me." And I spoke at the beginning of my speech about that which I know about Shaikh Rabee', may Allaah grant him success, and what I mentioned has never ceased to be what I hold about him in my soul, up until this time. And his arrival here and his words that have reached me, then no doubt, they are such that they will increase a person in his love for him and in his supplication for him.

Alhamdulillaah! This is a great praise, if you reflect upon. And it is precisely this (along with Shaykh Ibn Uthaymin's warnings from the Qutbiyyah, their cassettes, doctrines and figurheads) that incensed the Qutbiyyah to try and attack Shaykh Rabee' through other Scholars by taking the same "rumour-mongering" and "scare-mongering" to them. That's what they have been trying to achieve after the Major Scholars passed away, Imaam al-Albani, Imaam Ibn Baz, Imaam Ibn Uthaymin, all these Scholars knew the truth and clarified the truth and were 100% behind Shaykh Rabee. After they passed away, the Hizbiyyeen have not ceased to try and get the other Shaykhs to speak about Shaykh Rabee', in continuation of their war against the Sunnah and its people, and in defence and support of the Qutbiyyah. So beware of their deception!
