THE MISCONCEPTION OF AN IGNORAMUS

THIS IGNORAMUS TRAIT IS SIMILAR TO THE TRIAL THAT BEFELL THOSE MUPPETS DECLARING THE SCHOLARS IN SOUTHWESTERN NIGERIAN AS KUFFAR

Ustaadh Ibroheem bn ‘Abdur-Rauf, Aboo Noosir (hafidhohuLlaah) said, “Someone wanted to use this verse, “…And whosoever does not judge by what Allaah revealed, then it is those who are the disbelievers” (to declare a Muslim as a Kaafir). The person entered unto Mahmoon as mentioned in the book, ‘Siyaasatu sshar’iyyah’ by Shaykh Jaabir al Hanbari who is a professor on Islaamic politics in the Jaamia’ moliku saud in Riyaadh. So he (Shaykh Jaabir al Hanbari) referred to it and said someone came unto Mahmoon and was telling Mahmoon that he is declaring him as a Kaafir, because he introduced some things into the Sharee’ah that were not part of the Sharee’ah, and he introduced some things that were statements of innovation. So he feels that Mahmoon is a Kaafir. Mahmoon (who was the last king at the time; it was in his time that Imaam Ahmad bn Hanbal was freed) asked him, ‘how do you know that what I am saying and what we have done is kufr?’ He (the accuser) said, “because Allaah said in the Qur’aan that ‘…And whosoever does not judge by what Allaah revealed, then it is those who are the disbelievers’”. So Mahmoon asked him again, ‘how do you know that this is from the Qur’aan?’ He said, ‘I knew that it is from the Qur’aan by the consensus of the Muslims.’ Do we understand? Mahmoon said to him, ‘It is also by the consensus of the Muslims that this verse does not refer to the leaders who do not rule by parts of the Qur’aan until they say that it is halaal (not to rule by it) and we have not told you that what we are doing is Halaal.’ He wanted to make takfeer as Faisal is making takfeer, but the person is telling him that; look as you’re saying that this is from the Qur’aan, there is also agreement and consensus that this verse does not refer to what you’re saying. So this is the way people have become; there are so many incidences regarding this verse and the matters of takfeer in the Qur’aan.”
