Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan's Praise, Commendation and Support For Shaykh Rabee's Refutation of Hasan al-Maalikee
Introduction of the Allaamah, the Shaykh Saalih bin Fawzaan al-Fawzaan
All praise is due to Allaah and may al-salaat and al-salaam be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.
To proceed: Then I have looked at what has the esteemed Shaykh, Rabee' bin Haadee al-Madkhali wrote in his refutation of the book called, "Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhaab is a Reformative Caller and not a Prophet" of the one called Hasan bin Farihaan al-Maalikee. That is the book in which he attacked the Imaam Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhaab making claim (by way of this) to refute his great book, "Kashf al-Shubuhaat". This writer who is put to tribulation did not suffice with this humiliating deed but he further wallowed in his deviation and misguidance, and he attacked the mountains of Islaam with his slander and fabrication. And he tried to criticize what was written by the leading scholars of Islaam and guides of the creation in clarifying the correct authentic creed and refuting the repugnant creeds. So I found that the refutation of Shaykh Rabee' - may Allaah preserve him - is sufficient in its field, good in its method, style, and making the opponent dumbstruck (i.e. being confounded and silenced). So may Allaah reward him with the best of rewards and reward him for what he has stood to perform of aiding the truth and repelling falsehood and its people.
And may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

Alhamdulillaah, this is another piece in the hundreds of jigsaw pieces through which the true picture begins to slowly emerge and through which the detractors and followers of desires are silenced further and further and their hypocrisy and deception laid bare. These people have shubuhaat (doubts, misconceptions) just like the Jahmiyyah throw shubuhaat against Ibn Taymiyyah and just as the grave-worshippers throw shubuhaat against Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab. When Shaykh Rabee' opposed and refuted that fikr they brought into this Ummah and its figureheads (all Ash'aris!) they began to tarnish him with faults, exactly as Imaam Ibn al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) stated (see here and here)!
