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!
Wonderful piece done years ago by Shaykh Ali Jumu’ah (hafithahullah):
Translated by the wonderful brothers at Al-Ma’rifah!
This is a wonderful video clip of Shaykh Habib ‘Ali Jifri, the Yemeni Sufic Imam who embodies the pure Prophetic way, valiantly defending the utilization of “weak” hadith in the Ihya ‘Ulum Ad-Din of the master of the arts and sciences Al-Ghazali. Everyone who loves the Sunnah should take the 10 minutes out of their day and listen to this discourse and pick up on the many jewels found therein of knowledge and of ettiquete, which unfortunately does not hold the same weight through translation.
There are several amazing jewels in this discourse that I took away from this lecture, and feel free to add what you like in the comments:
I recently came upon an argument that was presented by the heretical group that denies the Sunnah and by extension the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad. Many label this group “Qur’anites“, though I believe they do not deserve such labeling, as they are quick to ignore the Qur’an when it does not befit their desires. So here I will label them “Sunnah-Deniers“, and I hope it catches on!
Their argument goes (literally, as I am quoting from their work):
“God teaches us in the Quran that the Prophet Muhammad did not know the future. This will immediately expose the falsehood of this hadith and similar ones and expose the hypocrisy of those who claim to be Muslims but refuse to believe God in the Quran. God told them Muhammad did not know the future.
“Say (O Muhammad), “I have no power to benefit myself, or harm myself. Only what God wills happen to me. If I KNEW THE FUTURE, I would have increased my wealth, and no harm would have afflicted me. I am no more than a warner, and a bearer of good news for those who believe.” 7:188
“Say (O Muhammad), “I am not different from other messengers, I have NO IDEA what will happen to ME OR TO YOU. I ONLY follow what is revealed to me. I am NO MORE than a profound warner.” 46:9
Marifah.net has a translation of Shaykh Wahbah Zuhayli’s fatwa on the contravention of the Ijma’ of the Muslims regarding those who say that Gold is forbidden for women.
He also adds two points that are worthy of note:
a) The implication that Al-Albani did not study fiqh and hadith traditionally, and therefore his opinions are of no worth.
b) That his books should be discarded if they have such batil opinions.
The pseudo-salafis, in their attempts to legitimize Al-albani, simply state that “he is a scholar with mistakes”. The problem, however, is that his mistakes are so fatal and grievous, blunders that continue to misguide the masses of Muslims away from Islam, that it proves his poor academic standards, as well as his nontraditional studies.
