33 Ways of Developing Khushoo' in Salah

The Noble Qur'an - Hilali/Khan



  1. Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah, akhi AbduLlah.

    Ya akhi what exactly do you mean by “endorsing qutubism”?

  2. he promotes sayyid and muhammad qutb which have been extensively refuted by the top of the scholars like Bin Baz al Albani and Rabee’ may Allaah have Mercy on them and protect sheikh Rabee’

  3. here is some info on sayyid qutb and qutbism:
    [website removed by admin; I removed this since I don’t want my library to link to a website which is treating a Muslim brother of ours as someone worse than the Jews and Christians]

  4. @ AbdulLlah alMeksiki

    Brother I believe if you really read through all the comments of Shaykh Albani and Shaykh Bin Baz regarding Sayyid Qutb you will see a different picture. The problem is that those who overly defend Sayyid Qutb only quote those quotes which praise Sayyid, whereas those who hate Sayyid only quote those quotes which criticize Sayyid.

    The Muslim should be willing to accept the truth from whatever source it comes instead of trying to find the ‘perfect’ scholars and only take from them. Listen to Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) saying:
    الذين يستمعون القول فيتبعون أحسنه

    There is a lot to be said. But I only ask Allah to show us the truth and open our minds to accept wisdom from whomever it comes. Allah did not send us as judges over people.

    May Allah grant you tawfeeq for what is good for you in the akhirah.

  5. @ AbduLlah alMeksiki
    One more thing brother (although I don’t like getting into arguments), can you show me a quote of Shaykh Munajjid in which he quotes something from Sayyid or Muhammad Qutb which is against the Qur’an and Sunnah? Not just any quote from them but a quote which is clearly against the Qur’an and Sunnah with no room for disagreement?

  6. If you read the book ‘al-Awaasim Mimmaa Fee Kutub Sayyid Qutub Min al-Qawasim which is a refutation of Sayyid Qutb’ written by Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haadee, you will find in the appendix a letter written and signed by sheikh al ALbani himself praising the refutation and discrediting furhter Sayyid Qutb, if you would like to hear sheikh ibn al Uthaymeen recommending people to learn about Sayyid Qutb by reading this book please listen to this recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYjwZJYQyzE

    So in summary if you research the topic carefully you will find that all the great scholars of the last decades have, at the end and after learning the reality of the matter, agreed that Sayyid Qutb is to be abandoned and was in fact an ignorant man with regards to the religion.

    IF you read the book my brother I am sure you will find that it is from nasiha, from sincere desiring the good for the ummah, that one would advise everybody to abandon completely this man Sayyid Qutb. Would you not tell your brother such and such a doctor is very bad he can kill your son with his malpractice? so how much more in matters that relate to fire or paradise?

    One final point I might add:
    It is not true that we can take the good and leave the bad of someone. This is because there are only two possibilities:
    1) either we dont have enough knowledge to distinguish between the good and the bad (which is the case of the vast majority of us -in fact only the specialized shcolars can dsitinguish this), in this case it does not make any sense to think along those lines

    2) If we have enough knowledge we still be cannot guarantee that our heart will fall into fitnah by listening to the wrong words and that is why the greatest scholars of the first generations would not even listen to the words of a man upon innovation, as you can find here: http://www.albaidha.net/vb/archive/index.php/t-13335.html

    amin to your dua brother and to you the same.

  7. Brother it is easy to claim that all the scholars somehow at the end learned about the ‘evilness’ of Sayyid Qutb. But I don’t believe this can be substantiated if you search through YouTube itself or through written materials where you will see a different reality. There is even a statement of Shaykh Ibn Baz in which he says something like ‘The language of Sayyid Qutb is in a high literary form so the one who reads it and is at a lower literary level may understand something else from it but if he reads it again he will understand the reality of what he is saying.”

    It is also easy to pick those quotes from the Salaf in which they abandoned and shut out the innovators of their times. I believe there is a lot of confusion in this matter and I am not qualified to talk about this (a lot of definitions and distinctions need to be made before reaching conclusions from these instances). But you can also find a good number of examples of justice when talking about people in the writings of people like Ibn Taymiyyah and Adh-Dhahabi (to name only two). They wouldn’t break a Muslim’s back for mistakes he made. They would be just and fair, just as Allah commands us a number of times (read Surah Ma’idah).

    As for Sayyid look at somebody like Shaykh Bakr abu Zayd. It is hard to believe he missed the ‘evils’ of the man when he wrote the letter to Shaykh Rabee’. I am also aware of the claim about his ‘regretting’ it but I don’t believe that, if it is true, really affects what he said in the letter.

    I believe this whole issue about Sayyid Qutb doesn’t really have to do with advising the ummah about the ‘evils’ of a ‘kharijite’. It may well just have to do with other matters. But Allah is well aware of our intentions.

    And I really don’t agree with the final two points you mentioned. Based on that we are never going to benefit from anybody except from the very few people whom certain people consider as ‘authentic scholars’. Brother didn’t you see what some ‘salafi’ websites were doing to Shaykh Ibn Jibreen after he defended Sayyid Qutb and said a few other things. When he was ill, I even saw certain people saying things like “If he returns to the Straight Path then may Allah cure him, but if he persists on his path then may Allah break his back as a mercy to him.”

    Do you see how sick and rigid a heart can get as to wish the death of a Muslim scholar just because he defended certain people?

    I really believe the matter about Sayyid Qutb and certain individuals and Muslim associations is not a matter of ‘ilm and warning the people, it is a matter of the state of the heart. You may not agree with what I am saying. But it is up to you.

    If the issue is one of discussing the matter from a ‘ilmi perspective I believe there is already enough material out there to argue otherwise.

    May Allah unite us in Jannah.

  8. Just one last thing. What is the essence of our deen? Pleasing Allah and getting closer to Him by obeying Him and being conscious of Him in our life so that we enter Jannah.

    Brother just from what angle and what perspective is your eeman going to rise up when you read an entire book that is aimed at criticizing and defaming a Muslim writer? There is no point in it.
