Mahmood Shakir Refuting and Establishing the Hujjah Upon The Propounders of the aqidah of the Rafidah of Hatred and Revilement of the Companions

Mahmood Shakir wrote five articles in defence of the Companions of Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). Four of them appeared in the magazine "al-Muslimoon" which was edited by Sa'eed Ramadan al-Misree, who was one of the prominent figureheads of al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen, and the fifth was published in "ar-Risaalah", a magazine by Ahmad Hasan az-Zayyaat. These are the five articles:

  • (حكم بلا بينة) "Hukmum bilaa Bayyinah" (Judgement without proof), published in the first edition of "al-Muslimoon", 1952

  • (تاريخ بلا إيمان) "Taareekh bilaa Eemaan" (History Without Faith), published in the second edition of "al-Muslimoon", 1952

  • (لا تسبوا أصحابي) "Laa Tasubboo Ashaabee" (Do not Revile My Companions), published in the third edition of "al-Muslimoon", 1952

  • (ألسنة المفترين) "Alsinat al-Muftareen" (Tongues of the Liars), published in the fourth edition of "al-Muslimoon", 1952

  • (ذو العقل يشقى) "Dhul-Aql Yashqaa" (Possessor of Intellect Becomes Miserable), published in "ar-Risaalah" in 1952

Do Not Revile My Companions! Sixth Installment

لا تسبوا أصحابي للأستاذ محمود محمد شاكر

"Do Not Revile my Companions" by Mahmood Muhammad Shakir [A Refutation of Sayyid Qutb]

Allaamah Mahmood Shakir documents ten instances in total of Sayyid Qutb's attacks upon four of the Companions, Mu'awiyah, his parents, Abu Sufyan and Hind, and also Amr bin al-Aas (radiallaahu anhum), as well as the Bani Umayyah in general. We have documented some of these statements previously.

He quotes the saying of Qutb regarding Mu'aawiyah:

وأما معاوية بعد علي ؛ فقد سار سياسة المال سيرته التي ينتفي منها العنصر الأخلاقي ، فجعله للرشى واللهى وشراء الأمم( ) في البيعة ليزيد ، وما أشبه هذه الأغراض ، بجانب مطالب الدولة والأجناد والفتوح بطبيعة الحال

As for Mu'awiyah after Alee, then the politics of wealth took its course in which there was the absence of (any) moral component, and so he (Mu'awiyah) turned it into bribes, pastimes, selling of debt liabilities (securities) through the bai'ah (pledge of allegiance) for Yazeed and whatever resembles these objectives [all] alongside the natural needs of the state, the troops and victories (i.e. needs arising through expansion of lands).

He quotes what Qutb said about Mu'awiyah's mother, Hind, after he spoke about Abu Sufyan (see here):

ثم يقول عن هند بن عتبة أم معاوية:

ذلك أبو معاوية ، فأما أمه هند بنت عتبة ، فهي تلك التي وقفت يوم أحد تلغ في الدم إذ تنهش كبد حمزة كاللبؤة المتوحشة ، لا يشفع لها في هذه الفعلة الشنيعة حق الثأر على حمزة؛ فقد كان قد مات ، وهي التي وقفت بعد إسلام زوجها كرها بعد إذ تقررت غلبة الإسلام تصيح: <<اقتلوا الخبيث الدنس الذي لا خير فيه ، قبح من طليعة قوم ، هلا قاتلتم ودفعتم عن أنفسكم وبلادكم؟>>

Then he (Qutb) says about Hind bin Utbah, the mother of Mu'awiyah:

That is Abu Mu'awiyah (i.e. Abu Sufyan), as for his mother Hind bin Utbah, then she is that one who stood on the day of Uhud, flowing in blood, tearing Hamzah's liver to pieces like a wild lioness, the right of revenge against Hamzah did not intercede for her in his vile act, for he had already died. And she is the one who stood with hatred, after the Islam of her husband (Abu Sufyan), after the domination of Islam was established, shouting, "Kill this dirty khabeeth in which there is no goodness, a shame upon the avant-garde of the people, if only you had fought and defended yourselves and your land?"

As we have covered in previous articles in this series Qutb considers the parents to have accepted Islam upon a cliff-edge, right after Islam became dominant, and he considered them enemies of Islam and the Muslims, always hoping for tribulation for the Muslims and being at the forefront of it, whenever the chance for tribulation arose.

Mahmood Shakir quotes the saying of Qutb regarding Bani Umayyah in general:

ثم قال شاملاً لبني أمية

هذا هو الإسلام ، على الرغم ما اعترض خطواته العملية الأولى من غلبة أسرة لم تعمر روح الإسلام نفوسها؛ فأمنت على حرف حين غلب الإسلام ، وظلت تحلم بالملك الموروث العضوض حتى نالته ، فسارت بالأمر سيرة لا يعرفها الإسلام

Then he (Qutb) said, regarding all of Bani Umayyah:

This is the Islam, despite the criticism upon its very first practical steps due to the domination of a family whose souls had not been occupied by the spirit of Islaam, and which believed only on a cliff-edge when Islam became dominant, and they began to dream of inherited biting kingship (rule), until they obtained it, and thus the affair took a course that Islam does not know of.

And these attacks upon these Companions and also upon Uthmaan (radiallaahu anhu) are not mere slips of the tongue, for it is possible that a Scholar make a slip of the tongue in the manner of his speech regarding a companion without holding any malice. With Qutb, we see this malice, the expression of which is not a slip of the tongue, rather it is a doctrinal, ideological belief held by Qutb as we shall prove in a subsequent article in this series.

So the Qutbiyyah are intellectual fraudsters and they are the Ghullaat ul-Murji'ah who expel the actions of the heart from eemaan, as is clear from their behaviour.
