All perfect praise is for Allaah alone. We beseech His peace and blessings upon Muhammad (sollaLloohu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
In continuation of the previous explanations on the nonsensical statements of Rosheed Mustopha (Aboo Ibeji) during his lecture on Sunday; he said, “There is nothing in Doctorate degree. It is just about writing. You may be asked to write (an essay on a topic) related to trees and birds. That’s all. You become a doctor (automatically). There is nothing in professorship. You will only be asked to write on a particular thing after which you’ll be awarded the certificate if you’re influential. The four years university program is the part which has to do with knowledge. With all these statements of mine, bring out any of your thanowiy students who can do all these things I am doing. Where will you get one? Bring out any of your thanowiy student who graduated from any of your madaaris in the whole of Nigeria who can withstand me! You only want to ridicule me, that’s all. Me! Secondary school student! Never! How can I be a secondary school student despite how eloquent I am to the extent that a Doctor here hailed me! I am more than a Doctor. It’s just that I don’t have any certificate (to proof it). [Time: 68 minutes 04 seconds to 68 minutes 58 seconds]
MY COMMENTS: To start with, claiming that there is nothing in Doctorate degree and Professorship in Islaam is not only a show of lack of understanding of what knowledge entails, but also, a “hot lie” which is best said by a person whose level of ignorance is immeasurable. If there is ‘nothing’ in doctorate and professorship qualifications, we wouldn’t have seen some of the ‘Ulamaa with them. Shaykh Soolih Fawzaan and Shaykh ‘Abdillaah al-Bukhooree are both doctors and professors in the field of Islaamic knowledge. Shaykh Robee bn Haadee al-Modkholee has a doctorate degree in the field of Islaamic knowledge. Does that mean they wasted their time studying nothing or reading about trees and birds? A Yoruba adage says, “The one who doesn’t have the like of what one has will never know its worth.” Without any doubt, if his Jaahil teacher (Muhammad ‘Aliyy Jabata) has one of those qualifications, he wouldn’t have said that nonsensical statement.
In one of his statements while refuting Dr Asrau, he said, “Don’t you know the meaning of Ph.D? Doctor of philosophy; Ph stands for philosophy (while) D stands for Doctor. How can one be boastful of that?! This is the qualification they (Dr Asrau and every other Doctor in the field of Islaamic knowledge) received and they keep on ranting and distorting the deen.” I (Aboo Aaishah Al Odeomeey) have no atom of doubt that these statements are best said by a stupid ignoramus. SubhaanoLlaah! This is someone who hasn’t learnt in the University to have at least, a first degree. Is it a sin or an innovation to be a doctor or a professor or both in the field of knowledge? Ask him to mention the doctors and professors whose years of studying for those qualifications were based on just writing about trees and birds. Trees and bird! Trees and birds! Trees and birds! Where do they get these nonsensical, foolish, stupid, brainless, imprudent, idiotic, indiscreet, ridiculous, silly and unwise statements from? This boy is indeed a liar.
According to him, no thanawiyy student in the whole of Nigeria knows better than him. There is in this statement, a display of ignorance, lie and bragging upon misguidance. By Allaah, this is obvious to the people with common sense. Rosheed’s ‘tatment’ and ‘grammar’ (in his teacher’s tone) is just too much. Isn’t it? He claims he is eloquent to the extent that a Doctor hailed him. The truth is, even when I can’t belief him until I hear it myself, I say, if it’s true, the Doctor must have made a mistake or he himself is a confused being. This boy who claims he is very eloquent is used to pronouncing ‘qiyaamah as qiyawmah’ and ‘nikaah as nikai’. In fact, in the same lecture, he made the same mistake of pronouncing ‘al-qiyaamah’ as ‘al-qiyawmah.’ [Time: 47 minutes 03 seconds to 47 minutes 04 seconds]. This is the same boy who translated, ‘al-ismu qodru mushtarok baynol bidai’ kulli haa’ as ‘every bid’ah is on the same level of sin” instead of ‘sinning is the common factor constant in all bid’ah’. He has forgotten that the Messenger of Allaah said, “Whoever shows off, Allaah will expose him.” [Soheeh al-Bukhooree and Soheeh Muslim] There are many errors we know about him. We ask Allaah to rectify our affairs and guide us all to the straight path.
In the second part of my dissection of his nonsensical statements, I mentioned the nonsensical statement he made about the Qur’aan with a view to exposing his weakness in issues related to the ‘aqeedah of the Ahlus sunnah wal Jamaa’ah. He uttered the statement twice; if the first one was a mistake, the second one wouldn’t have followed. Fortunately, some of his advocates accepted it as an error, but ‘unfortunately’ they couldn’t make takfeer on him. This is how dodgy they’re. Allaah exposed them! As for a group of them, they still belief that their teacher was correct to have said that. We ask Allaah to restore their ratiocination. One thing which has to be pointed out is this, no one is infallible. We can make mistakes in the issues of usool and furoo’. Those mistakes need not be hijacked and used to nail the person in question, rather, one should, however, make clear to the person, his mistake with evidences from the Qur’aan and Sunnah. This is as simple as ABC! This is what they have not been properly applying. Their refutations are always with insults and showing off. If you’re not with them, you can’t escape being labeled as a kaafir except if you haven’t had an encounter with them before. The truth is, no single scholar in Nigeria will remain a Muslim to them (Muhammad ‘Aliyy Jabata amd his students) because there will be one misgrounded conceit or the other that would be attached to the scholar. Once you’re upon the ‘aqeedah of the Ahlus sunnah which states (with evidences) that there are some innovations which doesn’t take the doer out of the fold of Islaam, and you act upon it, you’re in trouble. They would say, ‘so and so’ is an innovator and automatically a kaafir and you may regard the person as a Muslim because his innovation doesn’t take him out of the pale of Islaam. How are we together? The obvious truth is that they are innovators. Shaykh (Doctor and Professor) ‘Abdillaah al-Bukhooree said, “ How many people like him (Muhammad ‘Aliyy Jabata) have introduced many heresies into the religion (of Allaah) and they do this based upon their ignorance of the Qur’aan, Sunnoh, and the way of the Salaf!” Shaykh even said, “He will give verdicts upon his designed way which if we will deal with him using his monhaj, we will make tabdee’ and takfeer of him.” SO I ASK THEM (JABATA AND HIS STUDENTS), ‘WHY IS ROSHEED’S CASE DIFFERENT SINCE THERE IS NO EXCUSE OF IGNORANCE ON THE ISSUES OF ‘AQEEDAH TO THEM?’
We ask Allaah to grant us a better understanding of this religion and to keep us steadfast upon the undiluted Islaam.
I beseech Allaah to show us the truth as being the truth and grant us its following, and to show us misguidance as misguidance, and to make it easy for us to abstain from it.
May prayers and peace be upon Muhammad (sollaLloohu ‘alayhi wa sallam), his respected households and companions, and on the generality of the Muslims till the end of time.
