All perfect praise is for Allaah alone. We beseech His peace and blessings upon Muhammad (sollaLloohu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
Imaam Maalik (rohimohuLlaah) said:
“Knowledge is not to be taken from four types of people, and is to be taken from anyone else: (one) the fool who is known for his foolishness, even if he narrates more than anyone; (two) the liar who lies on the people, even if he doesn’t lie upon the Prophet (sollaLloohu ‘alayhi was sallam); (three) an innovator who calls people to his innovation; (four) a shaykh who is known for his virtue and worship if he doesn’t understand what he talks about.” [Reported in al-Jaami’ li Akhlaaq ar-Roowii wa Aadaab as-Saami 1/139] Without an iota of doubt, the four attributes of the one whom knowledge is not to be taken from, as mentioned by Imaam Maalik (rohimohuLlaah), are present in Muhammad ‘Aliyy Jabata (al Khoorijee). I wish to concentrate on only one of his attributes here; his ‘hot’ lies. By Allaah, he is a great liar who have been attributing his lies to the scholars of sunnah ranging from the dead (among them) to the living.
He lied against Shaykh Saleem bn ‘Eid al-Hilaalee (hafidhohuLlaah); only Allaah knows where he got that boldness, but AlhamduliLlaah, he has been appropriately refuted by the Shaykh. He is so foolish to the extent that he said he would show Shaykh Saleem al Hilaalee in his book (Al bid’ah wa atharuha as-sayyi’ fil ummah) that the Shaykh didn’t categorize bid’ah. ‘Didirin buruku ti kole da tira ka koyanju’! This is someone who has failed to write just one book of knowledge in his life. What a comedy? After his lies were exposed by some of the people of knowledge here in Nigeria and Shaykh Saleem al-Hilaalee (himself), he still came out publicly to cock up another lie. He claimed that Shaykh Saleem Hilaalee stylistically changed his stand of ‘all bid’ah is a major kufr’ because of the fitnah in the Arabian Peninsula. What a hot lie from the comedian?
Besides, he and his ignoramus students also attributed their erroneous ideology (all bid’ah is a major kufr) to Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rohimohuLlaah). They’re fond of erroneously quoting some statements of Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah in Iqtidoo’ as-sirootul mustaqeem li mukhoolafah ashaab al-jaheem. With the help of Allaah (subhaanohu wa ta’ala), we’ve properly exposed their distortions and unwise discernment regarding those statements. Below is one of the direct statements from Shaykhul Islaam which refutes the ‘aqeedah of Muhammad ‘Aliyy Jabata and his bedbugs. Reflect and stop being dogmatic!
Shaykhul Islaam said, “There is a statement (which claims) that we can’t declare anyone who faces the qiblah as a disbeliever; (the claimants say) they belief that we can’t declare anyone who faces the qiblah as a kaafir. (As for) the second statement; they say all those who are into bid’ah must be made takfeer upon; they belief that all the doers of bid’ah are disbelievers and they have left Islaam. BOTH STATEMENTS (which we’ve mentioned) CONTRADICT THE TRUTH; IT (the statements) CONTRADICT THE EVIDENCES OF THE SHAREE’AH. (Shaykh ‘Abdussalaam bn Saalim bn Rojaa as-Suhaymee said) Ibn Taymiyyah has explained that it is an error for anyone who places these (nonsensical) statements upon the scholars. He (Ibn Taymiyyah) said the correct thing is that, we differentiate between the people of innovation, and this is the truth which comes from the Salaf.
