Shaykh Saalim replies to baatil speech of a Sufi Innovator

All praise belongs to Allah, about a month ago, I had the opportunity to sit with Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel when he was in Boston, MA for a few days.

On Saturday July 11th, he was in a Masjid in Quincy, MA. The imaam of that masjid is a Sufi innovator. He would lead the maghrib and isha prayers and would make them very long on purpose so that the people will not be able to get benefit from the Shaykh.

After he completed salaatul-ishaa, he stood up and said a few words. Unfortunately, my recorder was not  running at that time as I had turned it off for isha. But his words were to the effect of saying that in this masjid there are people of different madhaahib (school of Islaamic Jurisprudence), different ‘aqaaid (creeds) and people of different cultures. He said that we respect the words of the Shaykh and have given him the opportunity to speak here but his fataawas are not binding on any person. They are free to choose any opinion they want. His opinions are not necessarily the opinion of this masjid.

The Shaykh hafidahullah had a session with the imaam of that masjid Wednesday night after isha which lasted up to 2am in the morning from what some of the brothers told me who were there present.

In this session, this sufi Imaam told the Shaykh not to speak about ‘Aqeedah. He said that these are simple Americans and they do not understand Tawheed.

This is how the people of innovation are. They want the people to remain ignorant about the Deen of Allah so that they don’t learn the Haqq (Truth) and oppose them in their baatil (falsehood). They simply want their positions and are afraid of being removed from those positions and their titles being stripped from them.

As for the people of the Sunnah, alhamdulillah, they do not desire anything from the people, not fame, nor wealth, nor their praise. Rather they only desire the Face of Allah ajja wa jal with their actions and they seek the pleasure only of Allah ajja wa jal.

Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel replies to some words from a Sufi Innovator

    This mubtadi’ who does not believe that Allah is distinct from his creation, spoke in a condescending manner and he was trying to show that he had done a favor to the Salafees and the Shaykh by allowing them to organize the lecture series.

    In one of the lectures of the Shaykh Saalim, the Shaykh refuted this mubtadi’ that if Americans don’t know tawheed then that’s what he has come here for, to teach Americans tawheed! When Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent Muadh ibn Jabal radiAllahu anhu to Yemen he told him to call the people to Tawheed first. May Allah guide this mubtadi.

    And yeah, he had a very very closely trimmed beard! It was almost non-existent! May Allah aid the Salafi Da’wah in Quincy and all over the world. Aameen.
