… Do you give preference to their statement over the statement of Allaah and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم?
Who have you raised to a level with your Lord and how do you deem him worthy?
Do you feel secure from the punishment of Allaah, that He pours on the one who compares Him to His creation?
Do you feel safe that your following of Imam ‘so and so’ in contradiction to the Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم will not incur the wrath of Allaah and His punishment?
Be warned, O slave of Allaah, from obeying the creation in opposition to obeying Allaah and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.
Be warned, O slave of Allaah, that your reasoning or that of the scholars of misguidance is held in precedence over what has been sent down by the All-Wise,the All-Knowing.
Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “Stones are about to fall on you from the sky (as a punishment). I say ‘the Prophet said so and so’ and you say ‘Abu Bakr and Umar said (something different)” [Narrated by Imaam Ahmad with a Saheeh chain]
Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah have agreed that the best of this Ummah after the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم is Abu Bakr and after that ‘Umar, yet Ibn ‘Abbaas knew the importance of putting the Sunnah as priority over the saying of anyone else, no matter how great they are.
So what of the Sheikh whose fatwa you blindly follow? Is he greater than Abu Bakr? Is he greater than ‘Umar? If their statement is to be rejected when the Sunnah is made clear then why, O slave of Allaah, are you rejecting the Haqq in favour of Imaam youtube and Sheikh google?
Fear for yourself before you meet your demise. The Deen is clear and is not to be taken from those that use it for worldly gain. The Deen is safe from what they distort and add to it.
The Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “A group of my Ummah will continue to follow the truth and prevail and those who oppose them will not be able to harm them until the command of Allaah comes to pass.” [Narrated in Ibn Maajah on the authority of Thawban]
Protect yourself, O slave of Allaah, and do not be as the man in the parable; when he is asked ‘Where are you going?’ He replies ‘With them’. When he is asked ‘Where are they going?’ He says ‘I don’t know’.
Upon you is the Qur’an and Sunnah! Upon you is the way of the Salaf! There is no salvation except through this methodology. There is no better path except that the Salaf have trod upon it. There is only their way and the way of other than them is astray. Upon you is the Truth, O slave of Allaah, and upon you on the Day of Judgement is the consequence of if you choose to follow it or not.
May the Salaah and the Salaam of Allaah be upon the Final Messenger, his family, companions, and all those that follow them in righteousness until the Day of Recompense.
