Concerning the Behaviour of the Qutbiyyah Towards the Scholars of Ahl us-Sunnah

We see today the drowning Qutbiyyah - their flag-ship vessel "the Qutbiyyah" washed ashore, she is battered and in ruins - unable to explain why they were unable for the past 15 years to show sincerity of purpose to Allaah and His deen in rushing to defend the honours of Moses (alayhis salaam), Uthmaan (radiallaahu anhu), Mu'aawiyah (radiallaahu anhu) Abu Sufyaan (radiallaahu anhu), Hind (radiallaahu anhaa), the Bani Umayyah and others, but instead they spent from their wealth and made such effort that would have conquered the mountains, seas and oceans, for the sake of an individual who reviled and abused some of those mentioned and made takfir of others amongst them!

With the hawaan and dhull (ignominy, humiliation, disgrace) they invited upon themselves through these actions of theirs, today, we see these people left with no refuge except to bark at the people of the Sunnah:

So, are you saying Qutb was a kaafir then! Go on say it, stop messing around, was he a kaafir or not?!! Just say it! Why are you holding back! Please, now, say it. I beg you! Go on, say he was a kaafir, I'm desperate now, and I'll even beg you. You see I'm feeling a little vulnerable and exposed now and if you make Takfir of him, then being a good little coward, I can then run with it to the world. Please?! You see I'm sat here behind my keyboard and I'm really cringing and biting at my fingers, please relieve my of my agony and distress. Just say "kaafir"!.

As a little background, Imaam al-Albaani, the Imaam of Hadeeth - whose word is taken with acceptance in the entire dunyaa regarding the sayings of Allaah's Messenger (alayhis salaam), and what an honourable position of trustworthiness and veracity it is for it to be said (صححه الألباني) - was the subject of an organization-wide boycott by al-Ikhwaan al-Mufliseen, and they warned against his da'wah (the Rabbaanee, Prophetic da'wah, in which there is wisdom and intellect) and also ordered the boycott of anyone who subscribes to the da'wah of the Shaykh - all because Shaykh al-Albaani pointed out the doctrine of Wahdat ul-Wujood in the statements of Sayyid Qutb.

Abdullaah Azzaam, although previously attending the lessons, acted upon this boycott and never showed up anymore. The Shaykh provides more details on the matter and this was covered in part 1 of this article, so please refer to it first:

  • Sayyid Qutb, The Doctrine of Wahdat ul-Wujood, Imaam al-Albaanee and Abdullaah Azzaam: Part 1 - Slandering Imaam al-Albaani Because He Stated Sayyid Qutb Speaks with the Unity of Existence - (see here)

It's a good idea to read the above article in full first so you understand the context of what happened, because here the Shaykh is continuing the story.

Shaykh al-Albaanee: Abdullaah Azzaam is a "Dhaalim", He Made a Covenant to Publish a Retraction in the Same Magazine [in Which He Slandered al-Albaanee] But He Did Not Do So

Here is another audio recording in which Shaykh al-Albaanee explains another encounter he had with Abdullah Azzam after Azzam had slandered and lied upon Shaykh al-Albani through publishing a series of articles in the Ikhwani magazine "al-Mujtama'" in the 1980s.

What Is In the Audio From Shaykh al-Albaanee

In a nutshell the Shaykh caught up with Abdullah Azzam who followed an organization-wide Ikhwani boycott against the Shaykh because the Shaykh pointed out the doctrine of Wahdat ul-Wujood in the writings of Sayyid Qutb. Despite having a meeting with Shaykh al-Albaanee in his son-in-law's house in which the Shaykh clearly explained to him that you know full well we do not make Takfir of Sayyid Qutb, and that we do not make Takfir except with the establishment of the hujjah (proof) - Abdullah Azzam went on to publish a series of articles in al-Mujtama' magazine with big bold titles, "Shaykh al-Albaanee Makes Takfir of Sayyid Qutb".

So in the above audio someone brings the attention to the Shaykh of a refutation written by Azzam against him, and the Shaykh says that Azzam already wrote against him in the magazine al-Mujtama'. Then he says about Abdullaah Azzaam:

And he (Abdullah Azzam) is, unfortunately, a dhaalim (oppressor)...

The Shaykh continues to explain that when he met up with Abdullah Azzam again and confronted him as to why he did what he did, Azzam claimed that he had heard some youth in Makkah saying that Shaykh al-Albani made Takfir of Sayyid Qutb and on that basis he did what he did!!

The Shaykh then explains that he took a covenant from Abdullah Azzam that he correct this matter (i.e. his slander against Shaykh al-Albaanee) in the very same magazine by publishing a recantation and clarification,

...and yet he did not do so, may Allah have mercy upon him.

The Moral of the Above

The moral of the above is that you don't need any further explanations about the actions of the Qutbi minions today, who having been hurled from their perishing flag-ship "the Qutbiyyah", and who continue the same type of blind bigoted-defence and hizbiyyah for the sake of 20th century ignoramuses who, aside from the innovations of the Jahmiyyah, Mu'tazilah, Ash'ariyyah, brought little else aside from the poison of ar-Rafd and Takfir and Leninist Revolutions against the Ummah.

Update: 5th January 2009

The Qutbiyyah have responded to this article and the previous one by bringing all the praises that Abdullaah Azzam made for Shaykh al-Albani (rahimahullaah), in reference to Shaykh al-Albani's checkings of hadeeth and so on. Also by saying that Shaykh al-Albani referred to Azzam as a "rajul wadud" (loving man) who used to attend the Shaykh's lectures with a notebook and pen without fail. Well, we already included that in our article right here, it's there in the Arabic text and in the audio file.

Now you can go and find all the praises made by Abdullaah Azzaam of Shaykh al-Albani and all the other bits of information to try and deceive people through that same old Qutbi fog and mist but it doesn't wash. It just proves your desperation, and it only increases your deception in further clarity to the onlookers.

The moral here, and the purpose behind this and the previous article is to look at what hizbiyyah, and bigoted party-spirit can do to individuals, and if this can occur with the likes of Abdullah Azzam, may Allaah pardon him, about whom Shaykh al-Albani said what he said in rebuke and criticism many years after Azzaam died, then you can expect what is much worse from the people we have present today, and whose bigotry and partisanship to non-Scholars such as Sayyid Qutb (currently) knows no bounds or limits.
