In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
One of the students of knowledge asked Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadee about his view on Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool’s refutations against Shaikh Ali Halabi, and about the affair of Jarh Al-Mufassar which Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool pursued against Shaikh Ali Bin Hassan Al-Halabi; so the Shaikh said: I have read it and it is a strong refutation-may Allaah reward him—indeed he exposed affairs in which Shaikh Ali Bin Hassan is mistaken and on the other hand affairs in which there was correctness.  Then the Shaikh’s permission was sought for this statement of his to be placed on a salafi website;  so he said: There is no harm in that; there is no prohibition in that for this (i.e. what Shaikh Ahmad has written) is the truth.  This conversation with Shaikh Rabee took place on 1430/2/2
 . Paraphras

All praise is due to Allaah [The Lord of Mankind, Jinn and all that exists]. Indeed the good and happy end result is for those who fear their Lord. There is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah and Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. And may the Salaah and Salaam be upon him (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), his family, his companions and those who follow their path till the establishment of the hour. To proceed

Indeed, it has been reported by Imaam Ahmad and Imaam Muslim (rahimahumallaah) on the authority of Abdullaah Ibn Amr Ibn Aas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa) that the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ‘‘Indeed, there was not a Prophet before me except that it was incumbent upon him to guide his Ummah to the good of that which he knew there was (goodness) for them and to warn them against what he knew there was evil for them.”

Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiree (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated that this above hadeeth and the hadeeth of Tameem Ad-Daari about giving Naseehah to the Ummah are two clear texts showing the obligation upon the scholars to give advice to the Ummah; and this is done in order to protect the Sunnah and the sound creed from the false interpretations of the ignorant ones, the distortions of those going beyond bounds, the false claims of the liars and the dubious affairs of those misguided ones who confound truth with falsehood. [paraphrased and abridged: for further details, see malhoodhaat Wa Tanbeehaat of Shaikh Abdullaah Ibn Salfeeq Adh-Dhufayree:paage9]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated in his reply to Dr Ibraaheem Ruhayli (may Allaah rectify his affair): ”unfortunately, there are people who conceal refutations against the people of falsehood and error. They are enthusiastic in (giving) them allegiance and defending them; and they (show) harshness and disapproval towards those who refute falsehood and error. They betray them with a severe betrayal and they make the people ardent that this (action) of theirs is softness and wisdom, whilst it is from the severest types of calamity and trials—the very affair that encourages the people of falsehood to persist upon their falsehood and spread their trials and tribulations worldwide. If only these type of people realised the dangerous end results of their stances.”

Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated in his first reply to Dr Ibraaheem Ruhayli: Indeed amongst the greatest fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa-ah is the obligation of unity and togetherness, and prohibition from splitting and differing; and this unity is to be upon the truth, by way of the truth and for the sake of the truth.[Abridged]
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated in his criticism against Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel (may Allaah rectify his affair): Indeed, in this era in which the people of innovation seek to make excuses for those people who speak ill of the ahaadeeth of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam); however they do not make excuses for the Salafis in their criticisms against Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel despite the fact that there have occurred affairs in opposition to the salafi Manhaj from him.    Imaam Ibn Rajab spoke the truth when he stated: It is obligatory upon everyone to whom the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has been conveyed and he knows about it, that he clarifies it to the Ummah and give them advice.  He is to command them to follow the command of the Prophet even if it opposes the opinion of the great ones of this Ummah; for indeed the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has more right to be extolled and followed than the opinion of a great one whose command in some affairs is wrong…. Indeed, the companions and the scholars after them refuted the views of everyone that opposed the authentic Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) because the Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) is more beloved to them. His command is above the command of every person; therefore if another command opposes the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), then indeed the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has more right to be given precedence and followedParaphrased and Abridged

Some of the Clear Errors of Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel (may Allaah rectify his affair)
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated in the second part of his criticisms against Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel: There are three affairs showing the confirmation of the state of affairs of Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel: Firstly: These affairs are based on Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel’s audible speech. Secondly: These affairs are/were found in his website. Thirdly: Trustworthy and reliable narrators testified to these affairs. [end of quote]

 Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel praises some of the affiliates of the deviant organization (Ihyaa Turaath) and holds that the differing between Ihyaa Turaath and the Salafis is not an affair of creed [Note: This Title is the compiler's]
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool stated:
Shaikh Saalim Taweel is a man claiming to be Salafi and that he is from the Salafis; but there is to be found in his Manhaj, in his speech and in his statements many things that obligates warning against him, and he has been advised regarding that (i.e. his errors). And from this is his praise for some of the men of Ihyaa Turaath found in statement of his titled: Raddul Isaa-a Bil-Ihsaan Ta’qeeb Alaa Ad-Duktoor Khaalid Sultaan), he said: I praise Allaah, I love my Muslim brotherswhether they are from Jam-iyyah Ihyaa Turaath or outside of it, and I acknowledge for them their rights and preserve their sanctity for them ….I hold that there are from amongst those who ascribe themselves to Jamaa-atu At-turaath people of virtue, knowledge and religion ……And amongst them are people of the Qur’aan, such as the virtuous Shaikh Mohammed Hamoud Al Najdi, Sheikh Dawood As-oo-see, Sheikh Ibraahim Al Ansari, Sheikh FaisalGhazzaar and other than them…..[end of paraphrased quote]
Reader: This is a clear praise Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel gave to some of those ascribing to the extremely deviated organization Ihyaa Turaath, so even if Shaikh Saalim argues that he has criticisms against Ihyaa Turaath, this is no more than the criticisms of Ali Halabi (The innovator) against Ihyaa Turaath as stated by Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool.   Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool stated about Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel’s criticisms against Ihyaa Turaath: ”Yes, this is similar to what Ali Halabi refuted Ihyaa Turaath, whilst he is their companion, and eating and drinking with them. Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) mentioned from the characteristics of the people of the book that: ”Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud (David) and ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar (wrong, evil-doing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.) which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do…..’’
Therefore, Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool pointed out that Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel’s criticisms against the deviant organization Ihyaa Turaath is no more than that of Ali Halabi The Innovator. The Shaikh also pointed out in his first criticism that Shaikh Saalim does not hold that the differences between the Salafis and the deviants of Ihyaa Turaath is a differing in the affair of creed. Reader: Indeed, this view of Shaikh Saalim is false and in opposition to the reality of that which the scholars have revealed concerning the extreme deviations of this organization. Therefore, the reader must visit this linkhttp://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=5220 to find out for himself, for indeed the scholars have clearly pointed out that the differing between this deviant organization (Ihyaa Turaath) and the Salafis is a differing in the affairs of creed.

We will also provide other English websites in which are found translated materials related to the topics.


In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.  All praise is due to Allaah The Lord of mankind, Jinn and the entire existence.  And may the salaah and salaam be upon our noble Messenger Muhammad, his family and his companions.  To proceed:

Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated:
Indeed, I was asked whether one can benefit from Shaikh Saalim Taweel’s (knowledge, lectures etc.), so I answered in the negative because he has a number of Mukhaalafaat Manhajiyyah [i.e. a number of affairs in opposition to the salafi call- those affairs of Methodology that draws a clear distinction between the Salafi methodology and the falsehood of the groups, parties and sects.]  And indeed Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel has been advised concerning these affairs but he has not recanted from them; rather he reviled and disparaged his Salafi brothers.  And in my answer to the one who asked me about benefitting from Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel, I warned against six of his Mukhaalafaat (i.e. affairs in opposition to the Salafi methodology); but I did not declare him an innovator.  Therefore, how can I advise a person to listen to Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel when it is the case that he establishes false principles, announces such principles and call to them in his lessons and speeches, and teaches them to his students?!
And after speech about his Mukhaalafaat (i.e. affairs in opposition to the Salafi methodology) were made known on sahab.net and other salafi websites, his students (may Allaah guide me and them towards correctness) sent many communications in which they defended Shaikh Saalim and blamed me for uttering those words against him.  So I replied to them saying that I did not declare Shaikh Saalim an innovator, but I clarified his Mukhaalafaat (i.e. affairs in opposition to the salafi methodology) for the seeker/s of the truth.  They told me that Shaikh Saalim refutes Ihyaa Turaath; so I clarified Shaikh Saalim’s stance towards Ihyaa Turaath and that he has a mere criticism against them in which is not found a declaration that they are innovators; rather Shaikh Saalim intermingles with some of the men of Ihyaa Turaath and praises them.  So the students of Shaikh Saalim said that he is mistaken.
So I said to them: So you are in agreement with me in this affair, but is this the only mistake of Shaikh Saalim or does he have other mistakes that in contradiction to the methodology of the Salafus Saalih (the pious predecessors); and is it permissible for a me as a student of knowledge who knows the salafi methodology to advise people to listen and benefit from the likes of this man (i.e. Shaikh Saalim)?  So the students began defending him again and that they study under him, and that he is a salafi.  So I said to them that this praise of theirs for him is an approval of his dangerous mistakes about which he has been given advice; and that this stance of theirs towards a person who has opposed the Salafi methodology and has been advised but he refuses to make a recantation–is this stance of theirs the Salafi methodology they have adopted from Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel and whether they exalt the creation and not the Sunnah and the truth, and whether this is the end result of the foundations of Shaikh Saalim’s lessons?!’’ [End of abridged paraphrase]

Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool continued with a general address to everyone, saying:                
My brothers: Our major scholars, such as the likes of Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi (rahimahullaah), Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhali, Shaikh Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiriy and Shaikh Zaid Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve them)—they always instruct us saying, ”Do not have a bigoted allegiance towards us”; and these scholars teach us that returning to the truth is the good thing a person should do, rather than persisting in falsehood.  And the Imaams who came before these scholars (i.e. Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmi, Shaikh Ubaid and others) did not use to give precedence to anything over the truth, rather they used to say: ”If our speech opposes the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), then fling our speech on the wall;” and they have noble stances in speech and action with regards to this.  May Allaah reward them. [End of abridged paraphrase]

A Grave Mistake of Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel [Note: This title is the compiler's]
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated that Shaikh Saalim likens the Salafis to the takfeeris, and he said that just as the Takfeeris say, ‘’Jihaad, Jihaad, Jihaad! the Salafis (also) say: Sunnah, Sunnah, Sunnah!! This similitude Shaikh Saalim made is a betrayal of the Salafis and it is not a statement in aid of the truth; rather is it permissible in the first place to liken the people of truth to the people of falsehood, and are the Salafis to be blamed for exalting the Sunnah?! [End of abridged paraphrase]
Reader: Visit these links in which are found information about who the Takfeeris are as opposed to the call of the Salafis.  And after reading what is contained in these links you will come to know the reason why Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool strongly criticises Shaikh Saalim for likening the Salafis to the Takfeeris.  [1:Who are the Takfeeris?  http://www.takfiris.com/takfir/ [2:What Is Salafiyyah? http://al-athariyyah.com/salafiyyah/what_is.html  http://al-athariyyah.com/salafiyyah/principles_salafiyyah.html]

Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool continued…..
Shaikh Saalim says that there is no reward in repeating speech about Abdur Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq the innovator, when it is the case that the Imaams of the Sunnah have plenty of statements against the people of innovation and we find the Imaams of the Sunnah from different places refuting one person.  Therefore, what is the problem with Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel that he objects to repeated speech against Abdur Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq–an innovator and enemy of the Salafi Methodology!?  And even though Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel objects to speech being repeated against the misguided innovator Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq and says that there is no reward in doing so; however Shaikh Saalim speaks against Shaikh Muhammad Al-Anjari who is well known to be from the Mashaayikh of Kuwait.  Shaikh Saalim said that Shaikh Muhammad Al-Anjari has not done anything and that refutations do not increase Eemaan. 
Therefore, Shaikh Saalim does not see a benefit in repeating speech against the innovator Abdur Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq, but what about speaking against the well-known Kuwaiti Salafi Shaikh Muhammad Al-Anjari?  Indeed, this behaviour of Shaikh Saalim cannot be considered a defence of the truth and its people; rather he praises some of the men who affiliate themselves with the deviant organisation Ihyaa Turaath and this itself is a betrayal of the truth and its people.  And look at the softness Shaikh Saalim employed when speaking about those men of Ihyaa Turaath and how he spoke against Shaikh Anjari who is a well-known salafi Shaikh in Kuwait?!  This behaviour of Shaikh Saalim is a watering down of the truth and a means leading the Salafi Manhaj to be lost.
Reader: Visit the links to see who Shaikh Anjari is and who Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq the innovator is.  [1:Who is Shaikh Muhammad Al-Anjari: http://salaficentre.com/2012/09/studying-with-ahmad-as-subayee-and-muhammad-al-anjaree-in-kuwait-i-shaikh-rabee/] [2: Who is Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq the Innovator? http://www.salafipublications.com/sps/sp.cfm?secID=NDV&subsecID=NDV09&loadpage=displaysubsection.cfm]  [ http://salaficentre.com/2012/07/get-out-of-my-house-abdur-rahman-abdul-khaaliq-shaikh-muhammad-al-bannah/]

Shaikh Ahmad continued….
Likewise, another mistake of Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel is his view that a lot of refutations against the deviant organization Ihyaa Turaath hardens the heart of a person.

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Paraphrased Quote From Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness)
”Also he (i.e. Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel) has a statement in rejection of the speech of the scholars, rather (in rejection) of the speech of the Salaf that a person who praises a person of innovation is to be placed alongside that person of innovation.  He (i.e. Shaikh Saalim) rejects this affair, saying: ”this enforcement is false.” [End of Quote] [1]

[Compiler]–Some statements of the Salaf concerning this affair
Imaam Barbahaaree (rahimahullaah) stated:
If you see a man speaking well of Ibn Abee Du’aad, Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah, Abul Hudhail or Hishaam Al-Footee or any of their adherents, beware of him because he is an innovator. These people were upon apostasy, so leave this man who spoke well of them and whomever he mentioned of them.’[2]
‘If you see a man speaking well of Ibn Abee Du’aad, Al-Mareesee, Thumaamah, Abul Hudhail or Hishaam Al-Footee’
Sheikh Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) commented on the above statement, saying:
”If you see a man commending the people of evil and the scholars of misguidance, such as these off shoots of the Jahmiyyah; then know that he is a sinful one, a corrupter and a misguided one; because he does not praise them except that he loves them and approves of their path.  And if you see a man commending Ahlus Sunnah, such as the likes of Imaam Ahmad and Ibnul Mubaarak, and likewise commending the Scholars of the Taabi’een and those who came after them, then know that he is a person of goodness; because he commends not Ahlus Sunnah except that he loves the Sunnah and holds unto it.   This teaches us a lesson–some of the brothers or some of the students of knowledge commend some of the innovators or the people of desires and deviated views, whilst not examining their views and orientations. They attack and find fault with the people of goodness; because they lend an ear to those who find fault with them and believe them. This is a severe danger.   If you find fault with the people of goodness, the people of knowledge and Ahlus Sunnah, and commend the people of deviated views and orientations, then this is a severe danger even if you do not sit with them. So this is of that which we should be mindful, of that which many people have fallen into at present. [3]

 Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:
‘And whoever debases an innovator, Allah will raise him in Paradise by a hundred ranks.’[4]
Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement, saying: ”It is obligatory that the people of innovation are not shown hospitality either by way of a sitting, praise or other than that of different types of hospitality. It is obligatory to debase them because Allah has debased them, and this is also from (having) love and hate for the sake of Allah.” [5]

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad said: ‘So for Allah, never shelter an innovator’ [6]
Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement, saying: ”So upon you is that you keep away from bidah and do not be lackadaisical in that ever, in order that you may be protected upon your Religion and the Sunnah of your Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). [7]

Imaam Fudayl Ibn Iyaad (rahimahullaah) said:
”whoever honors an innovator has assisted in the demolition of Islaam.’ [Translated by Aboo Talhah Daawud Burbank (rahimahullaah)]
Sheikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan commented on the above statement, saying: ”Because innovation is contrary to Islaam. If you give support to an innovator, then indeed you have assisted in the demolition of Islaam, because Islaam is the Sunnah and the Sunnah is Islaam. So it is obligatory upon the person that he does not honour the people of innovation, and that he neither praises nor commends them; as we hear at present the praises for the kuffaar, the yahood and the Nasaaraa…. [8]
