Compilation of Al-Albani's Deceits and Blunders

We receive many emails asking us to expound on the blunders and deceits of Muhammad [Nasir] Al-Albani. We have decided to compile a page where access to his batil can easily be referenced and utilized in refuting his blind and bigoted followers. Obviously the page is changeable and will be updated when new information is found.

You can go here to see the current compilation. Stay tuned for updates insha’allah!

Shout out to the Sunnis: Help Wanted

Salamu ‘alaykum all,

If you are a real Sunni, interested in upholding the Sunnah and defending the way of the righteous forefathers, and are willing to spend a few hours of your day – or maybe even week – in helping our website grow, please email us at seekingilm at  We are particularly interested in people able to translate Arabic. [Rafael: Bonus points for Malikis]

We would like to kick up the research another notch and spend more time refuting the anthropomorphic creed of the pseudo-salafi movement, exposing their heresies, as well as the heresies of other groups as well. We would like to start a detailed refutation section of the pseudo-Shi’i Rafidi movement that has shown its head within the last 200 years as well. We currently have around 10,000 hits/visits a day according to our website counter, so this would be a great way to squelch bida’ah and promote good bida’ah, in the words of Imam Ash-Shafi’i, as well!

Note: Sidi Rafael wanted me to add in the following clause: “You must be able to prove your orthodoxy through a trial by fire”…

Okay maybe not fire, but you get the idea.

No! presents, give us presents, offerings!

Jazakum Allahu khayran

Salamu ‘alaykum,

Here is an audio file on youtube in which Shaykh Y. Qaradawi is asked about the creed of Al-Azhar. He clearly states that this Ummah’s majority is Asha’ri and the minority is pseudo-”Salafi”!

It is certainly beautiful to listen to:
