"On The Origin of Salafies"
Sheikh Suhaib Hasan
(Islamic Sharia Council)
“Wahabi Sheikh Shuaib Hasan is equating his sons kufr”
Quote: "This man(wahabi) believes our father Adam (as) was not made by Allah from clay, but was the children of two ape like creatures. He also denies the Shariah of Allah in open apostasy and the necessity of Hijab...more Here
Quote: “This weekend in London a big fitna erupted. I am surprised that none of the London brothers brought it up. It is with regards to Usama Hasan.
He is the son of Shuaib Hasan one of the most respected scholars of the ahle hadeeth of the UK.”
Anyway Usama for the last 4 years or so has been uttering kufr etc but the community has not been taking note.
He has been allowed to lead salah in the local salafi masjid (which many deobandis and others attend).
He is a man who has gone very astray. Anyway this weekend a debate was held and his father shuaib Hasan defended his sons views on evolution and said it is ONE of the 2 opinions on how Hazrat Adam AS came into existance. He claimed the taweel is similar to the asharis/maturudis/hanafis.
So Shuaib Hasan is equating his sons kufr (yes you heard my words very clearly a man who calls men with beards clowns and women with niqab ninjas and many other issues) with the taweel of the hanafis/asharis/maturudis. This same Usama Hasan tried to prove the permissibility of music in a debate around a year ago quoting extensively from the book of al-judai.
Our uleama (Wifaq) have given this clown a platform on a few occasions as he is a scientist.
Not 1 deobandi alim has spoke up with regards to this fitna. The likes of Usama Hasan portray their opinion as being ONE of the opinions when in fact its total batil/kufr.
I would like some ulema from this forum to dissect his views and get a fatwa passed on this person. what is the ruling on praying behind such an individual? “

Jazakallah khairan for everyone who has campaigned for the removal of the heretical apostate Usama Hasan from his position of being Imam at Masjid Tawhid in Leyton, London as covered also in this blog.
Here is the letter from the Masjid committee
We hope now Inshallah his father Suhaib Hasan now either withdraws his comments in support of his son’s kufr and his right to state it or else follows through on his comments that if Usama goes he will go also as it is not possible to pray behind someone who can defend such beliefs as not being kufr but ta’weel and the ulema have been clear it is not permissable to pray behind someone who believes in evolution or the one who defends it.

Dr Usama Hasan is a senior lecturer at Middlesex University, fellow of the Royal Astronomical
Society, former planetarium lecturer at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, and a part-time imam:
"Further to my detailed statement dated 15th February 2011 about evolution and veiling (hijab), I would like to state, after reflecting on the matter and listening to the advice of others:
1. I regret and retract some of my statements in the past about the theory of evolution, especially the inflammatory ones.
2. I do not believe that Adam, peace be upon him, had parents.
Usama Hasan London, Friday 4th March 2011"

The following statement from Abuz Zubair was released to the BBC in response to their query:
wahabi/salafi - Abuz Zubair (admin of IA website/forum):
“I am personally unaware of any threats that have been made against Usama Hasan, but would utterly condemn any if there have been any made. Certainly, I have not made any threats against him as has been insinuated. I wrote an article the subject and aim of which is clear in its title and conclusion. It is about whether or not someone should take position of Imam of the prayer, whilst holding evolutionary beliefs about the origins of man. In that article I chose to cite legal verdicts by Saudi authorities who are known to have been highly respected by Usama Hasan, and his father Suhaib Hasan – in order to highlight condemnation of Usama Hasan’s views from his own teachers, and for no other reason.
