أخوذ من المجروحون عند الإمام الوادعي
ترجمة: نجيب بن يوسف الأنجلسي
Translated by Najeeb Al Anjelesi
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
All praise is due to Allah alone, the Lord of all that exists. I bear
witness that there is no object of worship in truth except Allah; He
is alone and without partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad
(sallahu alaihi wa salaam) is His servant and messenger.
As to what follows:
This question is from our brother, as Shaykh Fareed Abdullah, the Imam
of Masjid Al Mumin in Los Angeles California; directed to our Shaykh
al-Allamah Abi Abdur Rahmaan Muqbil bin Hadee Al Wadi’ee.
Q: Yaa Shaykh! Is it possible for you to benefit the students of
knowledge in this country with some advice?
A: That which I advise and recommend them with is in accordance with
the advice of Allah to His servants, which is to have taqwa of Allah,*
the Sublime and Exalted. Allah says,
“And verily, We have recommended to the people of the Scripture before
you, and to you that you all fear Allah …” [An-Nisa 4:131]
And after that I advise them with Ikhlaas** to Allah. As Allah (azza
wa jel) says,
“Surely the religion is for Allah only.” [Az Zumar 39: 3]
“And they were commanded not, but that they worship Allah, and worship
none but Him Alone …” [Al-Bayyinah 98: 5]
And that which is in the two sahihs*** from the narration of Jundub
ibn Abdullah, the Prophet (Sallahu alaihi wa salaam) said: “He who
lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally to win their
praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day
of Recompense). And he who does good deeds in public to show off and
to win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real
intention (and humiliate him).
Furthermore, I advise them with diligence and perseverance in
acquiring beneficial knowledge**** since the caller to Allah is not
successful if he is not well equipped with beneficial knowledge. And
the Lord of Honor says to His Prophet (sallahu alaihi wa salaam):
“Say: My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.” [Taha 20: 114]
Therefore it is not befitting that an individual falls into despair,
so that he says about himself “I’ve become old and as a result I don’t
understand.” Because Allah makes things easy; and that which is
considered is his diligence (and not his youthfulness or oldness of
age). Again we say that Allah is the One who makes (all affairs) easy,
because Allah says in His Book,
“And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember,
then is there anyone who will remember?” [Al-Qamar 54: 17]
And The Prophet (sallahu alaihi wa salaam) said, “I have been sent with ease.”
Likewise he said, on the authority of Abu Huraira (Sahih Al Bukhari):
“Verily this religion is easy and no one goes to extremes in it except
that it overwhelms him.”
In addition, we advise them to call to the path of Allah with
gentleness and leniency whether in Yemen or here in America. The
caller to Allah doesn’t have any authority so that he makes things
binding upon the people. If he were to compel them, then none would
answer his call, except and only with the guidance of Allah. As He
(azza wa jel) mentions,
“You are not a dictator over them.” [Al-Ghashiyah 88:22]
And lastly, we advise our brothers, particularly those in this country
(America), to find a balance between secluding themselves from the
people and interaction with them. We isolate ourselves from the people
and from gatherings in which therein is evil even if they were to say
it is a celebration or it is this or it is that.
“And those who do not bear witness to falsehood ..” [Al-Furqan 25: 72]
What is best is that we interact with the people for the purpose of
calling them to Allah and teaching them. However, we do not integrate
with the people like the Ikwaanil muslimeen with the intention of
calling them to Allah, so that maybe they cut their beards (claiming
that this is necessary) or maybe they do this or maybe they do that
(actions that are not in accordance with Islaam but in the name of
To reiterate, we don’t isolate ourselves for indeed, isolation is
prohibited, because the Muslims are in need of someone teaching them
(the affairs of their religion).
I ask Allah to rectify my affairs and yours. All praise is for Allah
alone, the Lord of all that exists.
*Shaykh Rabee ibn Hadee Al Madkhalee said Taqwa of Allah is obedience
to Allah and submission to what He commanded with avoidance to what He
prohibited. (Mudhakirah Al Hadith An Nabawi)
**Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al uthaymeen said regarding Ikhlaas; it
is purification. What is intened by it is that a person intends with
his worship the Face of Allah azza wa jal and the arrival to Allahs’
paradise so that he doesn’t worship with Allah other than Allah, not
an angel close to Allah nor a prophet sent by Allah.
(Sharh Al-Usool Ath-Thalaatha)
***Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim
****What is intended by beneficial knowledge is Al-Ilm Ash-Sharee.
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen said regarding Al-Ilm
Ash-Sharee; it is knowledge in which Allah revealed to His Messenger
from clarity and guidance. It is knowledge of that which was inspired
(by Allah to His Messenger, revelation). It is only knowledge of that
which Allah has sent down ( from above the 7 Heavens).

Doctor Nasr Ali Shaykh says in his book “The Belief of Ahlis Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah regarding the noble companions”:
When the 4th khaleefah Ali was martyred due to being killed by one of the khawarij (Abdur Rahmaan ibn Amr Al-Muraadi on the 17th night of Ramadan 40 yrs after the hijra of the Prophet) the pledge was then given to his son Hasan after him. For 7 months (some say 8 months while others say 6 months) he endured being khaleefah over the Hijaz, Yemen, Iraq, and Khuraasan. Thus his succession, its time period is included in the time period of the rightly guided successors in reality. This is because the time period (of the succession of Hasan) completes the time period of the rightly guided successors in which the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salaam) informed us that its time period would be 30 yrs then monarchies.
At-Tirmidhi narrated (in his sunan) with a chain that ends at Safinah in which he said: The Messenger of Allah said: “The succession in my nation will be for 30 yrs and after that monarchies.”
Likewise the hadith of Safinah is related by Imaam Ahmad (in his musnad) with the wording “The succession is for 30 yrs then there will be monarchies to succeed that.”
Also related by Abu Dawud (in his sunan) with the wording: “The succession of prophethood is 30 yrs then Allah will give to whomever He wills sovereignty.”
So there wasn’t a successor during the 30 yrs after the passing of the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salaam) except the four successor Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, and Ali along with the days of Hasan. Consequently a number of scholars from the people of knowledge concluded in their explanations to the Prophet’s statement “the succession in my nation is 30 yrs” that the months in which Hasan ibn Ali assumed authority after the death of his father are in fact included in the time period of the succession of the Prophet and finalized it.
Abu Bakr ibn al Arabi said: ” A truthful promise was accomplished regarding the Prophet’s statement: “The succession in my nation is 30 yrs then monarchies.” So this period consisted of Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, Ali and the 8 months that were exclusively for Hasan without the increase or decrease of a day.”
Al-Qaadhi Iyyadh said: ” So there wasn’t a successor during the 30 yrs except the 4 rightly guided successions and the months of Hasan ibn Ali…
Furthermore he said: ” What’s intended by the succession is 30 yrs, is succession of the prophet. Thus it was explain in accordance to this in other (authentic) narrations.
Al Haafith ibn Kathir said: “The proof that Hasan is one of the rightly guided successors is the hadith that we reported as evidence from Safinah in which the Messenger said: “The succession after me is 30 yrs then monarchies.”
Thus the 30 yrs was completed with the succession of Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib.”
In Addition the statements in the explanation of At-Tahawiyyah: “The succession of Abu Bakr was 2 yrs and 3 months. The succession of Umar was 10 yrs and 6 months. The succession of Uthmaan was 12 yrs. The succession of Ali was 4 yrs and 9 months, and lastly, the succession of Hasan which was 6 months.”

A: The Messenger عليه الصلاة و السلام said: "Verily a people will come that will receive a sum at once with no delay or postponement." This is sound, and in another narration
"Read the Quran and don't be negligent, likewise don't exceed it's limits, nor eat due to it by (taking wages)." I am in conformity with this narration being weak as a result I don't draw a conclusion with it.

This is to inform our brothers and sisters upon al minhaj as salafi that I Najeeb Al Anjelesi along with our brothers Abu Junayd Ghazi Al Anjelesi, Sameer Al Anjelesi, and Akh Umar had a beautiful discussion with our noble brother Abu Mujahid Fareed Abdullah on the evening of Monday Dec 26, 2011 at Masjid Al Mumin in Los Angeles after salatil isha. As a result of this discussion our brother Fareed gave his approval to convey his positions concerning certain affairs in which positions are being falsely attributed to him without his authority or knowledge.
First, concerning Abu Mussab Wajdi Akkari although the brother attended Fareed’s classes, that which he promotes on the internet concerning salafiyyah he DID NOT learn from Fareed. Thus Fareed is free from his claim “be upon the way of the salaf but not salafi.” Likewise he is free from the apparent attacks of Abu Mussab against the salafis. Furthermore he is not considered from the students of Fareed by him or anyone else that was present for the short duration of Abu Mussab’s attendance.
Second, concerning Ali Hasan Al Halabi, our brother Fareed is in accordance with the position of the ulama regarding the criticism of Halabi and at no time has told anyone anything contrary to that. Thus that which is spread by some individuals in California that contradicts what was previously mentioned is FALSE.
Thus it is hoped that our brothers upon al minhaj as salafi in other parts of the country will stop calling the angelesiyyeen inquiring about his position in these two affairs. If there is a need for clarification then call Al Madina school and talk to Fareed directly inshaa’llah wa billahit tawfeeq.

Safiyya Bint Huyyay stated: I visited the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam- one night while he Performed i’tikaaf and conversed with him for awhile. Eventually I stood up to return (home) so he stood up in order to return me (to her dwellings). Her residence was within the dar of Usamah ibn Zayd. While walking two men from the Ansar passed by and as soon as they saw the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam- they sped up. The Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam- said “walk calmly for indeed this is Safiyya Bint Huyyay!” They said, “glorified is Allah O’ Messenger of Allah.” (Their response indicated that they did not have evil suspicions with regards to the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam-). The Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam stated, “Indeed the Shaytan circulates through the body of man as the blood circulates, and I feared that he would place evil within your hearts.“
Collected by both Bukhari, Muslim and others.
Abul Hasan Nurud-Din Muhammad ibn Abdil Haadi As Sindi the author of kifaayatul haajah the explanation to the sunan of Ibn Majah states, “Suyuuti said in the footnotes to the taarikh of Ibn Asaakir upon the authority of Ibrahim Ibn Muhammad (who said) we were in a gathering with Ibn Uyainah while Ash Shaafi’ee was lecturing. During the course of the lecture he mentioned this hadith, so Ibn Uyainah asked about the correct understanding of it. Thus Ash Shaafi’ee said “if a people accused the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam (of evil) they as a result of their accusation against him would be disbelievers. However the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa sallam- educated (them) and those to come, hence he (basically) said if your situation is like this then do this so that no evil thoughts are held for you…”
I write this clarification in order to safeguard my honor and to aid my brothers from Ahlis Sunnah from falling into sin by attributing something to me that isn’t true. Thus I (Najeeb Al Anjelesi) state clearly that I have nothing to do with neither Al Hajuri nor the website Aloloom. This position of mine is well known to the salafiyyoon in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Sacramento, Las Vegas,and to whomever else that has a direct relationship with me. Likewise I’ve discussed this matter in depth with our brother’s Fareed Abdullah and Abu Zaynab Tawfeeq. Thus anyone that knows me or knows someone that knows me is clear on my position in this regard.
The reason for me writing this is due to one of the well known callers to salafiyyah here in the states being unaware of my position. Although he knows of me, he doesn’t know me personally and as such has no personal relationship with me. As a result he raised this issue to a brother I do know due to me formerly posting on the website Aloloom.net. So I reinterate in order to do away with all doubt that I have nothing to do with Yahya Al Hajuri, I have nothing to do with the website Aloloom.net, and I do not make defamation of any of the scholars of Ahlis Sunnah. As defamation of the scholars is from the distinguishing traits of the people of innovation and desire.
Shaykh Rabee wrote over 10 yrs ago some of the traits of the Haddaadiyyah. From the traits mentioned he stated: “Their hatred for the contemporary scholars upon al minhaj as salafi, disrespect for them, declaring them to be ignorant and misguided, and inventing lies against them especially the scholars of Medinah…“
He also stated: “Severe hostility towards the salafis regardless if they put forth major efforts in calling and defending salafiyyah, or if they struggled diligently in combating innovation, fanaticism to one’s group, and misguidance…”
