The Noble Shaykh, Ahmad an-Najmee (rahimahullaah) wrote a book called: (المورد العذب الزلال فيم انتقد على بعض المناهج الدعوية من العقائد والأعمال) - The Sweet Cool [Water] Spring Regarding What Has Been Criticized of Beliefs and Actions of Some of the Methodologies of Da'wah" in which he covered the mistakes, innovations and deviation of many groups and movements including al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen and Jamaa'at ut-Tableegh.

Shaykh Ibn Jibreen sent a letter to Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee requesting him not to print the book, and he said, as quoted by Shaykh an-Najmee in his response to him (p. 3):

ولمّا وصلتُ إلى الباب التاسع وقعت على مالم أكن أتوقع

And when I reached the ninth chapter, I came upon what I did not expect...

Shaykh Ibn Jibreen was surprised at the criticisms and pointing out of the errors of Hasan al-Banna. In this series we want to mention some of what Hasan al-Banna was criticised for by Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee, by quoting from Shaykh Najmee's response to Shaykh Ibn Jibreen.

Associating Partners with Allaah with the Major Shirk

Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee (rahimahullaah) said, addressing Ibn Jibreen:

فكّر ما الذي حملني على الكلام في رجل قد مات وأنا في سن الطفولة ولم يسفك لي دماً ولم ينتهك لي عرضاً ولم يأخذ عليَّ مالاً , فما الذي يحملني على الكلام فيه ولم يظلمني أنا شخصياً بشيء , إن كنت تكلمتُ فيه من غير سابق ظلم منه لي ولا مصلحة دينية تكلمت فيها من أجلها فأنا ظالم معتدي وسيأخذ الله له بحقه مني

Reflect upon what has carried me to speak about a man who died whilst I was only young in age, and he did not shed any blood of mine, and nor violate my honour and nor take wealth from me. So what has carried me to speak about him when he personally has not wronged me? If I had spoken about him without him having previously wronged me, and it was not for any religious benefit that I spoke about him, then I am an oppressor, transgressor, and Allaah will soon take from me his right.

And thereafter, he gives him an example of the criticism, on account of which he spoke against him:

وهو الذي كان ينشد

فسر هذه الأبيات بتفسير يحتمله هذا اللفظ غير الشرك الأكبر في قوله "وسامح الكل فيما قد مضى وجرى" وغير الكذب على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في وقوله "هذا الحبيب مع الأحباب قد حضرا" وتصديق فرية الصوفية الذين يقولون أنه صلى الله عليه وسلم يحضر حفلهم البدعي ألا وهو الإحتفال بالمولد .

He is the one who would recite the following poetry:

May the Divine (Al-Ilaah) send prayers over the light (i.e. Muhammad) that appeared
To the creation and surpassed the sun and the moon (in his light)
This beloved one (i.e. Muhammad) along with his loved ones has indeed attended (i.e. this gathering)
And pardoned everyone of what has passed and bygone (of their sins)

Explain these verses with an explanation that this wording contains other than [the explanation of it being] Major Shirk, as in his statement "And pardoned everyone of what has passed and bygone (of their sins)" and other than that of a lie against Allaahıs Messenger, as in his statement: "This beloved one (i.e. Muhammad) along with his loved ones has indeed attended", as well as what these words contain from affirming the fabrication of the Soofees who say that he (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) attends their innovated celebration gathering which is the celebration of the [Prophet's] Birthday.

And there was no response from Shaykh Ibn Jibreen as Shaykh Ahmad sent this to the Shaykh and allowed him ample time to respond. So when it angers a person that Hasan al-Banna is refuted for this saying, more than it angers them that Hasan al-Banna actually said this saying, then that is a calamity indeed!
