Wahhâbism (Part 1)

The Wahhâbîs, while claiming to love all as-Sahâbat al-kirâm, follow not their path but their own heretical path which they ascribe to as-Sahâba. They do not like the scholars of Ahl as-Sunna, great sûfîs and 'Alawîs and slander all of them. They suppose that they alone are Muslims. They regard those who are not like them as 'polytheists' and say that it is halâl for them to take away life and property of such people. Therefore, they become Ibâhatîs. They draw wrong, heretical meanings from the Qur'ân al-kerîm and the Hadîth ash-sherîf and think that Islam consists merely of those meanings. They deny the adilla-t-ash-Shar'iyya and most hadîths. The notables of the four Madhhabs write many books proving with documents that those who disagree with Ahl as-Sunna are heretics and do much harm to Islam.

Eyyûb Sabrî Pasha (rahimah-Allâhu ta'âlâ) said, "Wahhâbism came out with a bloody, torturous rebellion on the Arabian Peninsula in 1205 (1791)." Muhammad 'Abduh of Egypt was one of the people who tried to spread Wahhâbism and anti-Madhhabism through his books around the world. In the time of the Union and Progress Party, 'Abduh's books were translated into Turkish and were presented to the youth as the "works of the great scholar of Islam, the enlightened man of ideas, the eminent reformer 'Abduh." However, 'Abduh had openly written that he admired Jamâl ad-dîn al-Afghânî [d. 1314 A. H. (1897)], who was a freemason and chief of the Cairo Masonic Lodge. The enemies of Islam, who were in ambush to abolish the Ahl as-Sunna and to annihilate Islam by words falsely praising Islam, insidously incited this fitna by disguising themselves as religious men. 'Abduh was lauded to the skies.
