Seeking Sacred Sunni Knowledge

Ibn Baz Defends the ‘Wahhabiyya’ and calls them such!



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!”

Source the very site of binbaz in Saudi Arabia:

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!

    I have heard from a scholar that Imam Sharwani in his hashiya of Tuhfa under the section kitabul Bayy, has equated the wahhabiyya with khawarij. Could you translate the relevent portion?

  2. Ibn Ali says:


    Why do you have to mention a Muslim who has passed from this world by name. You never hear people like Shaykh Nuh and Habib Umar doing this.

    Wa salam

    I love Shaykh Bin Baaz. May Allah have Mercy on his soul. He spoke the truth. May Allah guide you people. He was from the REAL Ahlul Sunnah.

    The point of this article is only to show that Bin Baaz called towards a “wahhabi” sect/da’wah. He did this openly, staunchly, and claimed it was the way of the righteous forefathers (salaf us saalih). Obviously his claims are easily rejected based upon the statements of the Salaf themselves.

    Bin Baaz, we believe was sincere in his ijtihad, and we hope that Allah pardons him because of his inability to see the reality of the world – literally. A blind shaykh led by a blind-hearted mass of students and co-shaykhs all espousing to be “wahhabis”.

    He was, however, in a bubble of ignorance, as the monarchy wanted him to be so as to be their pawn. One can easily deduce such by the fact that he allowed the American imperialists – with his fatwa – to enter the Arabian peninsula at the behest of the evil King Fahad.

    His fiqh was horridly botched, and many of his stances are easily refuted. His ‘aqidah stepped away from the Majority and placed him amongst the evil and heretic Muqaatiliyyah and anthropomorphic Hanbalis of old that Ibn Al-Jawzi exposed in his Daf’ Shubah. Indeed, he will go down in Sunni history as being one who bashed the Sunni creed explicitly in his comments on Imam At-Tahawi’s treatise on Creed as well as Ibn Hajr Al-’Asqalani’s tome Fat-hul-Baari! If only Bin Baaz would have known his place and shut his mouth, so many people would have been saved from his evil and ignorance! Such shows the dangers of one blind shaykh who bashed the mountains such as Tahawi and Ibn Hajr [and Imam An-Nawawi whom he did not hold his tongue from too] that came before him!

  5. al-Musnad says:

    When we want to correct a Muslim, especially those who’ve passed away, we should separate the act and the person. I’ve noticed that you are very harsh against those who have already passed away such as, al-Albani, ‘Uthaymeen, and Ibn Baz as if they have personally wronged you. Next, this is just an isolated case and it is very clear. Why don’t you refer to all the other statements in which he clarifies and says that there is no such thing as a wahabiyyah?

    Allah said:

    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ لِلَّهِ شُهَدَاءَ بِالْقِسْطِ وَلَا يَجْرِمَنَّكُمْ شَنَآنُ قَوْمٍ عَلَىٰ أَلَّا تَعْدِلُوا اعْدِلُوا هُوَ أَقْرَبُ لِلتَّقْوَىٰ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

    O ye who believe! stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear Allah. For Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.

    Muhammad al-Ghazali was someone who hated Ibn Baz and even performed takfir and tabdi’ on him several occasions while he was in Egypt. He once met up with Ibn Baz who took him by the hand and gave him a beautiful advice. Upon returning to Egypt, people asked him whether he had spoken to Ibn Baz. He replied, “it was as if he was speaking to me from Jannah.”

  6. Ibn Anwar says:

    It is no secret that Ibn Baz recognises the legitimacy of the term “wahabiyya” for the so called Salafi movement. The following is from his مجموع فتاوا ومقالات متنوعة
    الوهابية منسوبة إلى الشيخ الإمام محمد بن عبدالوهاب رحمه الله المتوفى سنة ١٢٠٦ه, وهو الذي قام بادعوة إلى الله سبحانه في نجد

    مجموع فتاوا ومقالات متنوعة, ٢٣٠

    Assalamu’alaikum Sidi Abul Layth,
    Check out my article on the “Salah” of Allah:

  8. Arslan says:

    When transmitting the statements or fatawa of scholars, it is also important to convey who has declared the fatwa irrespective of whether he is alive or dead. This is the same standard followed in the science of ahadith and irrespective of the mistakes made by some muhaditheen we also reveal their names and mistakes as evidence, so why treat Bin Baz or Albaani specially. If you are ashamed of the name of your own sect then its your choice, even Salman Al Oudah has written few pages on being a wahabbi. Rather we would like to also point out the virulent approach of the same wahabbis towards scholars of ahlussunnah. Hatred of Muslims seems to be a pillar of faith of wahabbis.
