The christian missionary, who has quite the record of lying upon Islam, recently claimed that the aayaat and ahadith that seem anthropomorphic in nature were understood “literally” by Ahmad ibn Hanbal and the orthodox Sunnis.
Herein is a brief refutation and defense of Imam Ahmad put together by myself and CallingChristians:
Thanks to Abdur-Rahman Khattab and those who assisted in this endeavor. I have a feeling we are going to have to make the effort to refute him further, with more detail from the orthodox understanding. May Allah guide him and us aameen!
It is interesting to note that the pseudo-salafis of our age, in their darkness and evil, refuse to be called “Wahhabis”. They take offense and even go to extremes in defending their innovated title of “salafi” over the ascription of others who call them “wahhabis”.
However, Bin Baz, their arch Imam in evil, anthropomorphism, treachery of the Muslims by releasing his fatwa that allowed the land of the sacred ka’abah – a land in which our very Prophet Muhammad still is alive within His grave, ‘alayhis salat wa salam, – to be inhabited by an army that defends the very emblems of economic tyranny through cursed usury, political oppression, imperialism, called the wahhabis all sorts of wonderful names:
وليست الوهابية حسب تعبير الكاتب بدعاً في إنكار مثل هذه الأمور البدعية، بل عقيدة الوهابية: هي التمسك بكتاب الله وسنة رسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم، والسير على هديه، وهدي خلفائه الراشدين، والتابعين لهم بإحسان، وما كان عليه السلف الصالح، وأئمة الدين والهدى، أهل الفقه والفتوى في باب معرفة الله، وإثبات صفات كماله ونعوت جلاله
“… Rather! The creed of the wahhabiyya is holding fast with the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger, traversing upon His guidance, and the guidance of his rightly guided Caliphs, and those who follow them in good, and whatever the righteous forefathers were upon, and whatever the Imams of the Religions were upon, and the people of fiqh and fatwa in regards the gnosis of Allah, and affirming the attributes of Allah etc etc etc….”
All lies, but the point here is that he clearly professes the “Creed of the Wahabiyyah!”

May Allah guide the Wahhabiyyah back to the pure Sunnah, the way of the righteous forefathers, and the Imams of the Muslims! May Allah allow their da’wah of evil to be overthrown, their plague removed, and the Sunni orthodoxy once again to gain control of the two Harams! Aameen!
We all know – unless you have been hiding in a ravine or a cave, an idea that seems rather rational in our times – that the “Wahhabis” a.k.a. pseudo “Salafis”, have tried to strip this Ummah of any barakah by promoting their evil bida’ah and misguidance, in open contradiction to the Ijma‘ of the Muslims. There is a wonderful site, full of solid research, that thoroughly answers their anthropomorphic creed and deviant fiqh:
May Allah aide them in their efforts to remove this cancer from our Ummah Amin!
