Envy & Hatred

I got a nice wake up call this morning from my dear friend Abu Usamah Atthahabi. He had called to get my input on a recent matter that has come up for him. Seems like the guys at SPubs and their cronies in London are all up on his case again, this time for translating some praise Shaikh ‘Adnân ‘Abdul-Qâdir gave for his first shaikh, Shaikh ‘Abdur-Rahman ‘Abdul-Khâliq, and for another shaikh who benefitted him greatly, Shaikh ‘Abdullah as-Sabt (my bad, I thought the shaikh had passed away; he’s still alive, may Allah preserve him). As is usually the case with the Spubs lot, the whole thing is pretty retarded, with them taking statements taken out of context, their double standards, accusations of heresy, accusations of treachery, accusations of misguidance, pretence, pretext, and on and on, and on and on.

In any case, I was searching Youtube to find if the video the SPub groupies in London posted criticizing Abu Usamah had been reposted (as the original video “is no longer available due to a copyright claim by GLMCC”), and while searching, I came across this short lecture by Abu Usamah on a very, very fitting topic: envy and hatred (hasad and baghdâ’), as many times, as history proves over and over again, the underlying causes for these attacks on individuals is this very disease of the heart (i.e., envy). Being that this is the blessed month of Ramadân, I thought it’d be more beneficial to watch/listen to this lecture than to write about this recent retardedness from AK and the gang.

About Rasheed Gonzales
My name is Rasheed Gonzales. I’m a Muslim convert of Filipino descent. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, I was guided to Islam through one of my younger brothers and a couple of friends, all of whom had converted to Islam sometime before me (may Allah reward them greatly). I am married with four children (and the praise is Allah’s) and also a volunteer for the Qur'an & Sunnah Society of Canada, based in Toronto.

    SP’s friends’ video regarding this translation is nowhere to be found right now… at least I can’t find it. So sad this has to happen during Ramadaan. MaashaAllah

  2. Dar as-Sunnah (i.e., SPubs’s friends in London) reposted a video on their website containing the audio of the original video clip they posted along with some statements from Shaikhs Ubaid al-Jabiri, Ahmad an-Najmi (both of whom, along with Shaikh Rabi’, Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbad says resemble Shaikhs Falih al-Harbi in his exaggerationism). Abu Khadeejah added a link to it in his blog post on SalafiTalk.com as well. You can check it out here.
