Shaykh Muqbil bin Hādī Al-Wādi’ī on Why They Fear al-Jarh wat-Ta’dīl


Translation by Maaz Qureshi:…
[1]: This is the individual whom Imaam Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee (d.1420H) referred to as an “enemy of the Da’watus-Salafiyyah.” Shaykh Muqbil said, “The one who abstains from al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel has abstained from the Sunnah. So if there was no Jarh wat-Ta’deel, then the speech of the noble Scholar who calls to Allaah would be the same as the speech of ‘Alee at-Tantaawee, and the same as the speech of Muhammad as-Sawwaaf, and the same as the speech of Muhammad al-Ghazaalee, or the same as Hasan at-Turaabee, or the same as ash-Sha’raawee, or the same as the speech of the Shee’ah and the Raafidah, or the same as the speech of the Soofee: Hasan as-Saqqaaf. No one abstains from this knowledge, except for a man who is ignorant, or a man who holds rancour in his heart, or a man who knows that he is majrooh (disparaged, criticized), so he diverts others from al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel, because he knows that he is majrooh.” Refer to Fadaa’ih wan-Nasaa’ih (p. 115) of Muqbil Ibn Haadee.
[2]: Shaykh Muqbil said about his books that they are, “books of deviation and misguidance.” Refer to Qam’ul-Mu’aanid (p. 504) of Muqbil Ibn Haadee.
[3]: Shaykh Muqbil – rahimahullaah – said about his famous book, al-Halaal wal-Haraam, “As for this one, then it is a disfigured book. And it is a small book! This demonstrates the scope of your knowledge. If an individual were to write about the halaal and the haraam, then it would surely reach volumes. Indeed, Shaykh al-Fawzaan has refuted it in a book that he called: Naqdul-Halaal wal-Haraam.” Refer to al-Majroohoon ‘indal-Imaamil-Waadi’ee (p. 103) of ‘Aadil as-Siyaaghee.

[10]: Shaykh Muqbil has stated about him, “You are nothing but an innovation and you come with innovation and you argue with misguidance. And if Allaah so wills, we shall come out with a book entitled, Iqaamatul-Burhaan ‘alaa Dalaal ‘Abdir-Raheem at-Tahhaan (Establishing Evidence for the Misguidance of ‘Abdur-Raheem at-Tahhaan). So if only you would lower yourself and learn and study Saheehul-Bukhaaree and Muslim and Fathul-Majeed and other than those.” Refer to Fadaa’ih wan-Nasaa’ih (p. 249).
