    Powerful Advice to those who write online
    By Shaykh Aboo Maalik 'Abdul-Hameed Al-Juhanee

    Translated by: Akram an-Najdee
    Note: If you repost this advice anywhere else then link this page (http://www.athaar.org/advice.html) and the website of the Shaykh -hafidhahullaah- www.abumalik.net


    Who is Shaykh Aboo Maalik al-Juhanee?

    He is Shaykh Aboo Maalik 'Abdul-Hameed bin Khaliwy al-Juhanee Ar-Rifaa'ee, Imaam and Khateeb Masjid 'Umar bin al-Khattaab in Yanbu', Saudi Arabia and is in charge of Daarul Hadeeth in that area and is a member (and a Da'ee) of the Ministry of Awqaaf and Da'wah wal Irshaad. Shaykh 'Abdur-Rahmaan Muhiyyuddeen advised students to learn from the Shaykh. Likewise Shaykh Saaleh as-Suhaymee has praised the Shaykh for his efforts and knowledge. A number of 'Ulemaa have also praised and recommended the Shaykh.

    The Advice:

    The Shaykh – May Allaah Preserve Him – said:

    The intent is that people should have with them some understanding, because the sins of the tongue are dangerous. By Allaah, this is the problem with the righteous. This is the problem with the students of knowledge today, sins of the tongue. If you enter the Internet and looked at some of the sites and what it contains of the arguments, refutations, and altercations then you will know that this is the sins of the students of knowledge, the righteous, and the ascetics today. The religious people, Yaa Jamaa'ah (addressing the attendees), do not fornicate, consume alcohol, and oppress. However, come and see. Come and see the insulting, cursing, false accusations, and bad suspicions.

    Such that the speech reached the scholars, until these accusations undermined and affected even the People of Knowledge. Then it came to one of the scholars or one of the Callers (Du'aat) who are known with the Sunnah and holding fast to the Sunnah, and Da'wah (calling) to the Manhaj (methodology) of the Salaf and made apparent his mistakes in debates. Then if they show him five or six or seven mistakes no one recognizes them. If we want to follow any scholar from the scholars, we find with him lapses and mistakes.

    However Allaah has ordered with covering the mistakes and we cover the mistakes of our brothers from Ahlus Sunnah. They are our brothers in Beliefs. They are our brothers in Manhaj (methodology). We cover up for them and we advise them. Not what has come from this methodology now, they come to a scholar from amongst the scholars because he refuted them, for example, or advised them in something. They search in his tapes and his books and find 10 or 20 mistakes and they publish it. Look how: "Look at so-and-so he curses the angels, so-and-so curses the Companions" Ya Jamaa'ah (addressing the attendees) what is this? Is this Khomaini or who? Who is this one who is cursing the Dhaat of Allaah, cursing the Angels, cursing the Companions, and cursing the Salaf and he says the Messenger fell short of the foundations of the religion and he says this and that!? ALLAAH!! (in amazement of what they say). Is this Khomeini or who?

    They say, "No this is Shaykh so-and-so." When you are affected by surprise and shock do you not fear Allaah! This person is a scholar, a person known with Sunnah and aiding the Sunnah. How can you say about him that he curses the Angels and he curses the Sahaabah and he curses … what is this talk? The reality is there is no apprehension. By Allaah! By Allaah if people fornicate, it is easier than if they insult the honor a scholar from amongst the scholars who are known with advice for Allaah and His Messenger and His Book and His religion! How can you degrade in this matter? We ask Allaah for protection. But this trial now, you find a righteous man and his thobe (clothing worn by Arabs) is short (not falling below his ankles) and his beard is long and he prays in the first row and he loves the Sunnah. And his tongue is like a saw in the dignity of the people and in the dignity of the People of Knowledge. Laa Hawla wa Laa Quwaata Illaa Billaah (لا حول و لا قوة إلا بالله). He claims he is defending the Sunnah and defending… He should Fear Allaah! He should Fear Allaah. Right now what has come from speaking about the People of Innovation, right now what has come from speaking about the people of innovation and the people of Sunnah are together. Right now the people of the Internet, honestly who do those people respect? I just want to know. Those people who speak in those websites have not left anyone. They disparaged Shaykh Ibn Baaz, They disparaged the Shaykh… even Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen, and they disparaged Shaykh al-Albaanee, Shaykh Rabee', they disparaged Shaykh Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaamee, and they insulted Shaykh al-'Abbaad. They insulted the living and the dead, who do you have with you? They severely insulted these noble scholars wallaahul Musta'aan (And Allaah is the Helper). We are not saying that they are infallible, there is no one who does not have any mistakes. There is no one who is infallible except the Prophet – salallaahu alaihi wa salam -. If they were to follow Ibn Taymiyyah they would find something with him. So why do they specify this? This is from the sins of the tongue; people who are apprehensive should suffice their tongues (with silence).

    And then what do you have with you of knowledge? What knowledge do you have to enter yourself into this chapter, the chapter of Jarh wa Ta'deel (disparagement and praise). The chapter of criticism and praise is dangerous, it is for the people of Knowledge, the advisors, the intelligent ones, the ones who are apprehensive, those who fear Allaah. You entered this door and this was the first chapter of knowledge that you entered. You did not study 'Aqeedah (beliefs), you did not study Tahaarah (purity), you did not study Salaah (prayer), you did not study Zakaat (charity), you did not study knowledge of understanding the Hadeeth.

    By Allaah, some of the brothers from the students of knowledge were telling me that in Europe some of the youth just recently they were disbelievers, disbelievers. But now they are from the scholars of criticisms and praise. Meaning, recently they were disbelievers and now they are disparaging, praising, and criticizing. Okay… you, O Miskeen (poor in knowledge), who taught you this? You have to study the beliefs of Islaam first and take from the senior students of knowledge and the People of Knowledge. When you are qualified and established your feet in knowledge, then after that you can look at criticism and praise. However they have a great defect in Manhaj (methodology). Chaos, By Allaah, Chaos … chaos these days!!

    Everyone praises and everyone criticizes wallaahul Musta'aan. So Fear Allaah, those who generally speak in criticism and praise. Withhold, refrain, slow down, do not be hasty, do not be hasty in this dangerous chapter. You are now standing on the brink of Hell so have with you some evidence. If you speak about a person or refute a person or warn from a person then you should have with you some proof. Until Allaah –Subhaanahu wa ta'aala- asks you to prove it. But in fact the issue is like the racism of Jaahiliyyah (Pre-Islaamic ignorance). This one speaks about our Shaykh so we'll speak about his Shaykh, etc from the bickering and insults. Strange, until the People of innovation gloat over us and the Hizbees (partisans) gloat over us in every place. Such that one of the heads from the heads of the Hizbees in this country (Saudi Arabia) said that Salafiyyah divided itself. No, By Allaah! By Allaah, Salafiyyah has not divided itself and it will not divide by the permission of Allaah. However this is recklessness we are tested with. Impudence with some of the people that we are tested with, wallaahul Musta'aan.

    I think this is a subject that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. Especially those of us who spend a great deal of time online writing. But the inverse is also true, we need to be cautious and discerning in what we read as well.

    Yes, those words also had an effect on me...
    Shaykh spoke the truth, you see many people, especially youth, who eat the flesh of the 'Ulamaa just because they made some mistakes (and/or some other people spoke about them).

    Verily, the tongue..! Because of the tongue people will be thrown into the Fire!

    May Allaah the Exalted protect us from these sins.

    I think more people need to pay attention to this. Not on this site, alhamdulilah. But especially on Youtube, I have seen Muslims get VERY ugly when faced with things like mocking the Prophet (saw) and making fun of the ideas of Islam...Muslims curse and use awful language, awful comments "go **** a dog" and such things...I wish i could tell them - lets not imitate the actions & words of the Kufr.

    It appals me. I wish their mother could see such things.
