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...

Amongst other things, the general gist of which was defense of 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 addresses Shaykh Ibn Jibreen:

خامساً: فسّر لي محاضرته في مشهد السيدة زينب بمناسبة العام الهجري وعدم ذكره للشرك ولا نهيه عنه مع أنه يرى مَن يتطوّفون بالقبر ويسألون من صحابته مالا يُطلب إلا الله , فسِّر لي ذلك مُرضي الله وللرسوله ثم للمؤمنين غير الرضى بالشرك الأكبر والإباحة له عنده وفي منهجه .

سادساً: فسِّر لي مشيه إلى قبر الدسوقي وسَنجرْ عشرين كيلو ذهاباً وعشرين كيلو رجوعاً سيراً على الأقدام بتفسير مُرضٍ لله ولرسوله ثم للمؤمنين غير الزيارة الشركية أو البدعية .

Fifthly: Explain to me why he attended the gravesite of Sayyida Zaynab (radiallaahu 'anhaa) on the occasion of the yearly migration, and why he didn't mention the Shirk that occurred there nor forbid it, even though he saw people making tawaaf around the grave and asking the one buried in it [such] requests that only should be made to Allaah? Explain that to me in a way that pleases Allaah and His Messenger, and then [pleases] the believers, other than [with the explanation] that it was because he was pleased with [the] Major Shirk [he witnessed] and that he permitted it with himself and in his methodology [for it to take place].

Sixthly: Explain to me why he would walk to the graves of ad-Dusooqee and Sinjar on foot, 20 kilometers going and (another) 20 kilometers returning, with an explanation pleasing to Allaah and His Messenger and then to the believers other than [the explanation] that it was because he was either performing a polytheistic form of visitation or an innovated form of it.

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 these actions, more than it angers them that Hasan al-Banna actually did these actions, then that is a calamity indeed!
