Ash-Shaayijee says - ascribing it to the Salafees: "It is not permissible for a Muslim to look at the state of the Ummah and he should not know anything about it. Nor should he reflect upon the tragedies and afflictions that befall it - and this is because knowing that can only occur by reading the newspapers and magazines and listening to the foreign radio transmissions. And all of this is following other than the path of the Believers and falling into the shoelace of the Disbelievers" (p. 4)

Because ash-Shaayijee has made Shaikh Rabee’ the single reference point for the Salafees and the carrier of their flag, let us look at some of the words of the Shaikh as a refutation of this lying fabricator.[1]

Shaikh Rabee’ says:

"And I will add here what I have taken from the knowledge of the Salaf and their jihaad in the field of knowledge and calling to Allaah - and what the conditions and circumstances of the Muslims requires - as well as for the benefit and correction of their religion - so amongst that is: First: Acquaintance with what the Secularists, Communists, the Jews and the Christians are planning - and (of) their organisations and strategies in opposition to the Muslims.

So it is not permissible for the Ulamaa to remain heedless of their plans, their actions, their publications, their missionary activities and their various calls (to the Muslims). And also the various poisons they are infusing - which are in opposition to the Qur’aan and the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his Sunnah. And nor of what plans they have for (the destruction of) the beliefs and methodologies of Islaam. It is not permissible either, to remain heedless of their concentrated efforts to Christianize or secularize the Muslim youth.

And along with that, the Muslim youth and the students are not able to oppose this plan and strategy. Rather it is necessary that the distinguished Ulamaa - those who are experienced and shrewd - it is for such people, in all the places to undertake this duty. So it is obligatory for some of the intelligent and ingenious people from the field of ‘Aqeedah to be mobilised for opposing these plans. And likewise it is a must that the intelligent and distinguished from amongst the specialists in the Sunnah - that they be mobilised for the refutation of these – and similarly the eminent and distinguished from amongst those in the fields of Orientalism for the refutation of the plans of the Orientalists." (Ahl ul-Hadeeth, p.102)

He also says:

"I myself believe that it is a benefit - rather it is of necessity - that we know what the enemies are planning for us, and that it is necessary for us to prepare (ourselves in strength) to destroy their plans. However, I do not exaggerate in this matter, rather my view is the view of our Ulamaa’ and they have all agreed upon this - that amongst the obligatory matters there are some that are Fard ‘Ain and others that are Fard Kifaayah - and even if knowing the state of the enemies is harmful - it is still necessary for us to know it - but it is treated as Fard Kifaayah. When some attend to it, then the harm is removed from the rest…" up until he said: "…So I consider that there is no criticism for the Ulamaa and the students of knowledge who take great concern for preserving the Sharee’ah of Allaah - in terms of the Book, the Sunnah and its understanding - for this is one of the duties of the Kifaayah actions. And I believe that these people are more superior, noble, truthful and of more benefit to Islaam than those who are weak in their knowledge of the religion of Allaah or those who have no share in acquainting themselves with it." (p.81)

So these are some selections from the words of Shaikh Rabee’ on this topic and he also has other words in most of his books regarding these meanings (as outlined above) and this da’wah.

And I warn the reader that ash-Shaayijee does not have any trustworthiness in knowledge [i.e. in his quotations of others]. He throws words around [i.e. ascribes them to others] very haphazardly. And if this is not the case then does he find anything greater than this da’wah in its fight against the opposers in all their different forms? And does he find encouragement for the Ulamaa and the senior students of knowledge greater than that which Shaikh Rabee’ has mentioned with justice and adherence to the methodology of Ahl us-Sunnah - without exaggeration or negligence?[2]
