Judgment on Taqleed and that it is not Shirk as Wahhabis claim

All Muslims respect the four Imams (Shafi^iy, Malik, Ahmad Abu Hanifah) and follow them. However the "wahhabis" say following them is shirk! you'll find this fatwa in their book called ad-Deen al-Khalis page (140), likewise in their book Fathul-Majeed page 190. So who's left from the ummah if only them were Muslims and the rest of it are mushriks? In the following Ayah Allah ordered us in al-Qur'an to adhere and follow "Sabeel al-Muslimeen" the path of the Muslims, and the one that strays away is misguided:

وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا ﴿١١٥﴾

The Ayah means: {And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers - We will give him what he has taken and drive him into Hell, and evil it is as a destination.}

احذروا من كتب الوهابية أدعياء السلفية لأنهم يكفرون المسلمين
انظروا الى هذا الكتاب وكيف يزعمون أن تقليد المذاهب شرك والعياذ بالله

تمسكوا بما عليه أئمة #المذاهب_الأربعة

قال الإمام ابن رسلان الشافعي صاحب الزبد:
والشافعي ومالك والنعمان ... واحمد بن حنبل وسفيان
وغيرهم من سائر الائمة ... على هدىً والاختلاف رحمة


So who are wahhabis?
As we said, Wahhabis refer to the founder of the wahhabi movement named Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab who lived about 250 years ago. He was an innovator that opposed the ijma^ of all Muslims in aqeedah and rulings of Islam. He deemed People as blasphemers and permitted killing and slaughtering them by the name of Islam.

His father warned from him, and his brother Sulayman authored a book refuting him named "al-Sawa^iq al-Ilahiya fir-Radi ^alal-Wahhabiyah" and likewise did the Mufti of Makkah in his book called "Fitnatul-Wahhabiyah". Even the wahhabis in their books they label themselves as "Wahhabi Muslims" and they declared that name on themselves.

They liken Allah to his creation and permit the killing of Muslims and consider the majority of Muslims as Mushriks. We as Muslims must warn from them so our children don't end up killing and bombing others like what's happening nowadays.

Muhammad bin Abdulwahhab in his book called "Tahwheed" says "All those who ask Allah by the Prophet (make tawassul) are mushriks and their shirk is worse then the shrik of the idol worshippers"..

How many Muslims are considered kuffar by him? Knowing that Tawassul was taught by the Prophet himself to the companions, and that al-Bukhariy narrated the story where Abdullah son of Omar made tawassul by the Prophet when his foot got paralyzed, then it was cured!

We call to the necessity of following Jama^ah majority of the Ummah and warning from the factions, while spreading the true creed of Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jama^ah as per to the teachings of our great Four mujtahid Imams (Shafi^iy, Abu Hanifah, Malik & Ahmad bin Hanbal). Ibn Hajar said: "The creed of the Salaf and Khalaf is that Allah is clear from movement, change, or dwelling in a place. Absolutely nothing resembles Allah". Abu Mansur al-Baghdadiy reported the consensus Ijma^ that Allah exists without a place. Whatever you imagine in your minds, Allah is different from it.


Allah knows best.
