There is Sufficiency For You In Those Who Come
November 20, 2008 4 Comments
The following is a re-translation of a phone conversation that took place back in October 2002 in which Shaikh ‘Abdil-Muhsin al-‘Abbâd was asked about the statements made by Shaikh Rabî’ against QSS, QSS president Abdulmonem Burkhes, and against attending QSS’s activities and functions. It was originally translated and posted back in 2002 when Shaikh Rabî’ first warned against QSS and brother Abdulmonem, but is just as relevant today as it was back then. What’s mentioned in the conversation should also give a tiny glimpse at why the words of Shaikh Rabî’ in this particular matter, which some of our brothers continue to propagate, should not be given any importance or merit.
There is Sufficiency For You In Those Who Come (PDF). Salafiyyah was never about numbers, but rather about sticking to the truth, calling people to it with wisdom and good admonishion, and most importantly, being just and fair in your dealings with others. Say what you will about those who have been criticized and are said to have deviated from the methodology (e.g., Shaikhs Safar and Salmân), but one thing is for sure, they never chased people away from Salafiyyah and had them utterly disgusted by it like this group has.
May Allah rectify our affairs, forgive us for whatever contributions we made to damaging this blessed call, and guide us to that which pleases Him.
