Imam al-Baghawi (d.561AH) and Ibn Kathir on Khawarij



Imam al-Baghawi (d. 516H) in his book “Sharh as-Sunnah” while commenting on the hadith about the Khawarij: 

قَوْلُهُ: «لَا يُجَاوِزُ تَرَاقِيَهُمْ» أَيْ: لَا يُقْبَلُ وَلا يُرْفَعُ فِي الأَعْمَالِ الصَّالِحَةِ.
وَقَوْلُهُ: «يَمْرُقُونَ مِنَ الدِّينِ» أَيْ: يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الدِّينِ، أَيْ مِنَ طَاعَةِ الأَئِمَّةِ، وَالدِّينُ: الطَّاعَةُ، وَهَذَا نَعْتُ الْخَوَارِجِ الَّذِينَ لَا يَدِينُونَ لِلأَئِمَّةِ، وَيَسْتَعْرِضُونَ النَّاسَ بِالسَّيْفِ،
Here he explains the trait mentioned in the hadith about the Khawarij  that they read the Qur’an but “do not go beyond their throats” that it means “Neither accepted nor raised are their good deeds."
In other words, even if the Khawarij read the Qur’an, pray tahajjud, fast every week, fight their self declared “jihad”, or assume about themselves that “at least they have good intentions and calling to Tawhid and Shariah”, it does not matter in light of the religion that Allah has sent down and their deeds are deemed worthless.

And with regards to the description that the Khawarij “pass through the religion”, Imam al-Baghawi explains that “this attribute of the Khawarij is because they denounce the Imams and view people with the sword”.

Root Cause


Update: May 2017

Wahhabism/Salafism that is the root cause of extremism and terrorism

Quote:

Dr Zamihan says the Wahhabi/Salafist way is extremely rigid and rather extreme. It can split Muslim society, he warns, because its followers view Muslims who do not follow their way – as well as non-Muslims – as apostates so it is halal (permissible) to spill their blood.

He points out that apart from IS, a number of radical Islamist militant groups like Jemaah Islamiyah, Abu Sayyaf, Al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, Boko Haram and Al Shabaab all draw on the teachings of Wahhabism/Salafism to justify their brutal acts, claiming it as part of a jihad (holy war).

Dr Zamihan – who has a doctorate in Aqidah (faith) and Philosophy and is pursuing another PhD with a thesis on “Managing Conflict: A Study of IS” – says these extremists feel that only they are truly Islamic and right.

“They don’t accept the views or the religious authority of others, including the fatwa council or religious departments. They want an Islamic state but they don’t accept democracy and elections.

“They would kill, rob, kidnap, hijack, confiscate assets and property, steal weapons, carry out suicide attacks, buy material to make bombs, then make and use them because they want to destroy the current system of government, which to them is ‘unIslamic’ and is ‘astray’, so that they can set up an Islamic state according to their mould.’’

He says while extremist groups are not new to Malaysia, the present trend is really worrying because there is no structure, so attacks can happen anywhere; also, the extremists are hardcore.

Dr Zamihan is the president of Aswaja, short for Pertubuhan Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah Malaysia, a group that is trying to roll back the Wahhabi/Salafist influence in the country.

But this can be a quite challenge when Saudi Arabia, with its huge coffers, is a major donor to many institutions, NGOs and charity organisations here.

Then there are also people in Malaysia in influential positions who speak in defence of Wahhabism/Salafism. They say Wahhabism/Salafism is part of Sunni Islam – which is something that some here refute – and deny that it is fuelling radicalism and extremism in the country and making people join IS.

A few months ago, National Fatwa Council chairman Tan Sri Dr Shukor Husin weighed in on the issue. He was quoted in a news report as saying that while Wahhabism is not haram (prohibited) here, it has no place in the country because its followers are fond of labelling Muslims who do not adhere to Wahhabism teaching as apostates.

But since religion is a state matter, he said, it would be up to the respective states to decide whether to restrict or allow it.

Johor, Kedah, Negri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak and Selangor are states that have banned Wahhabism/Salafism.

Senior fellow at the Institute of Islamic Strategic Research Malaysia (Iksim) Dr Engku Ahmad Fadzil Engku Ali says there is no single factor that motivates people to join IS. He feels that it is significant that most who join are from the younger generation – this could indicate immaturity.

Dr Engku Ahmad says data from the police, based on their interrogation of IS detainees locally and overseas, point to the conclusion that almost all subscribe at one point or other of their struggle to the Wahhabi/Salafist ideology. 
He also says that it is no secret that the Saudis have been giving scholarships to Malaysian Muslims for many years and many have graduated and come back and are holding important and strategic positions in Islamic agencies here; some are also lecturers at local universities.

“They are given free access to the young, the less experienced and easily charged minds of hundreds of students year after year. I am not saying all of them are radicalising these students but some surely do sow the seeds of extremism in these young minds.”

So Dr Engku Ahmad is calling for a serious overhaul of the education syllabus for Islamic subjects. To stop or minimise young people from being radicalised, it is important to give them the needed educational content from the early stage “nurtured in the correct way and conveyed in terms they can easily understand’’, he says.

Interestingly, Dr Engku Ahmad also urged political parties to have the “strong will to reject entrance into their parties of these elements, however enticing their support seems to be to their political struggles’’.

Malaysia enjoys very close ties with Saudi Arabia so won’t coming down hard against Wahhabism/Salafism affect relations between the two countries, we wonder?

“We have the right, or rather obligation, to reject such a rigid and harsh understanding of Islam that eventually leads to extremism and terrorism. It is totally unacceptable to say that we are going to tolerate such a school of thought, or rather a systematic indoctrination, on the pretext that we do not want to strain our relationship with the Saudi Kingdom – or worse, giving the lame excuse that such a rejection will cause us to lose our quota for the annual hajj!” says Dr Engku Ahmad.

He says Malaysia rejects the Syiah interpretation of Islam but this does not affect its ties with Iran even though Syiah is the mainstream doctrine there.

“Similarly, rejecting Wahhabism/Salafism should not be seen as going against the Saudi Kingdom or government. We can even accept monetary assistance from the Saudis but we should not enslave ourselves to a dangerous doctrine like Wahhabism/Salafism as if we have sold our souls once we accept the Saudis’ assistance.”

He points out that Malaysia accepts assistance from the West but that does not mean it has to accept Christianity, the mainstream religion in the West.

“Similarly, it is very naive to say that we must accept Wahhabism/Salafism once we accept assistance from the Saudis. Even prominent figures in Saudi Arabia have started to admit frankly it is Wahhabism/Salafism that is the root cause of extremism and terrorism.’’ Here

Saudi Arabia is playing an increasingly destabilising role in the Middle East, German intelligence warns

'The cautious diplomatic stance of the older leading members of the royal family is being replaced by an impulsive policy of intervention' Here

‘Time of looking away over’: Germany warns Saudi Arabia to stop funding radical Islamists Here

The extremist behaviour of the criminal Bloodthirsty Wahhabi regime in Saudi Arabia will no longer be tolerated, not even by their own allies

The Al Saud have brought nothing but Evil misery and  bloodshed  to the Arab world, and instead of using oil revenues for the betterment of Islam the wahhabi regime is using it's vast fortunes to cause havoc and destruction upon the poorer and less fortunate Arab and Muslim countries, who refuse to submit to their radical Wahhabi Ideology!






In Brief

General Muslims and non muslims of the world have now woken up to realise that they want to get rid of this vile creature (ISIS/ISIL) which has bitten their newborns with a highly toxic and extremely venomous poison.




This particular evil species is called Wahhabiyyah and has been kept alive by the Snake Charmers in the West.
The Snake Charmer let loose this Evil  upon the Muslims in 1924, which has now grown into quite a large out of control vile Monster with its many Ugly Heads!

The Snake Charmer keeps breeding this Evil Snake upon the Muslim World due to its own Evil Dajjalic Agenda... 



Evil House of Saud, which has had intimate ties to the Pentagon, U.S. intelligence agencies, and American defense companies since 1943, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared, “The defense of Saudi Arabia is vital to the defense of the United States.” During the past seventy years, the Saudi monarchy has struck many, many arms deals with the U.S., including a $60.5 billion agreement with the Obama Administration, in 2010.
Trump administration approved a $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia.

 "This deal has President Trump throwing gasoline on a house fire and locking the door on his way out." [Eric Ferrero, Amnesty International USA communications director]

---



In 2013, $1.75 Trillion was spent on the military worldwide; with the top 100 arms companies selling over $402 Billion in weapons, but they still insisted to show us on TV Adverts: "How you can help the poor impoverished countries like Africa with food and clean water!"




But Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Lebanon have all been bombed by The Snake Charmer and its pungi  since 9/11, with the apparent objective of destroying Radical Islamic Terrorism.




Yet whether it's in the form of The Taliban, Al-Qaeda, or ISIS/ISIL...etc, the ideology behind all them  is the same vile species known as Wahhabism which is Hypnotized  by USA,UK,FRANCE,ISRAEL...etc.



Interview with John Pilger:
USA, UK and France gave birth to ISIS monster

Note:

It is an Extremely Venomous Species known to the Muslim world  as Wahhabi Not Sunni as the Snake Charmer led us to believe, The Snake Charmer like its Master Dajjal will confuse and mesmerise us and our Parents, so that they will not able to use the right Vaccine against its Extremely Toxic and very Poisonous venom !

The original breed (Khawarij) of this species raised its ugly head around the year 1740CE in Najd to spread its highly poisonous venom across the Muslim world. For the past 270 years or so, its highly poisonous venom has been spreading across the Muslim world from within Saudi Arabia! (More info here)

Most of the Wahhabiyyah  call themselves:  “Salafi/Ahlehadith” (Inland Taipan) and not to forget their (Eastern Brown) who call themselves Deobandi /Tablighis…etc, have been breeding this venomous species for quite some time and they are now quite desperate to find a vaccine for its poisonous venom, which they wholeheartedly kept breeding until  their newborns became extremely Toxic with its poison.

Those Muslims living in the west for the past 50 years or so who adopted this species of the Wahhabiyyah "Salafi/Ahlehadith” and the Deobandi /Tablighi cults have also affected their newborns through the venomous teachings of  Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn abdul Wahhab Najd's Ideology  due to their own Evil misguided Self Hatred of the Orthodox Sunni/Sufi Muslims!


 The Snakes Head?

Most of the Sunni World is sound asleep after having a delicious Biryani !

Over 100 Sunni scholars declare Wahhabis to be outside mainstream Sunni Islam – Chechnya
An International conference of Sunni scholars was held in Grozny, Chechnya, attended by more than 100 renowned Islamic scholars and Sufi shaykhs who came from Russia, Syria, Turkey, India, Egypt, Jordan, South Africa, United Kingdom and other countries.Shaykh Ahmed El-Tayeb, Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Egypt, defined the mainstream Sunni Islam and excluded Wahhabis from it.
He stated: “Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah are the Ash’arites and Muturidis (adherents of the theological systems of Imam Abu Mansur al-Maturidi and Imam Abul-Hasan al-Ash’ari). 
In matters of belief, they are followers of any of the four schools of thought (Hanafi, Shafi’i, Maliki or Hanbali) and are also the followers of the Sufism of Imam Junaid al-Baghdadi in doctrines, manners and [spiritual] purification.”
This statement implies that Salafists, also called Wahhabis, are not part of the mainstream Ahl as-Sunnah or Sunni Muslims, despite the fact that they are trying to hijack the term Sunni by labeling themselves as Sunni Muslims.

Shaykh Ahmed El-Tayeb also said: “Terrorists and Islam have no relation whatsoever, instead these terrorists are inclined towards spreading a radical ideology among Muslims, so that Islam is misunderstood world over.”
The conference was held on 25-27 August 2016 in the city of Grozny, organized by the president of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov.
Wahhabi clerics of the Saudi Kingdom are furious over this conference.
Wahhabis of other countries have also been angered over it.
                              
Some of the renowned shaykhs attending the conference include:

Shaykh Ahmed El-Tayeb, president and grand Imam of the prestigious Islamic seminary Al-Azhar University of Cairo, Egypt
Shaikh Muhammad Saad al-Azhari, professor of Al-Azhar University
Shaykh Abu Bakr Ahmad, head of the largest Islamic seminary in Kerala, South India
Shaykh Anwar Ahmed al-Baghdadi, teacher at a large North Indian seminary Jamia Aleemiya
Habib Umar bin Hafiz, the leading Sufi shaykh of the Ba-Alawiyah Sufi Order and head of the International Islamic seminary in Tarim, Yemen
Habib Ali al-Jifri, renowned Sunni scholar of UAE and one of the leading Sufi shaykhs of the Ba-Alawiyah Sufi Order
Shaykh Ali Gomaa, ex Grand Mufti of Egypt

Kamil Samigullin, the chief Mufti of Tatarstan

Where do they keep this Snake?

The Ugly Heads of this Evil breed are safely kept alive in Saudi Arabia in a hell hole called Najd
Where most of  its radicalised extreme evil teachings are produced and  bred daily
This vile creatures venom has been spread all around the world through Radical Wahhabi Preachers called: "Tawhid" , "Bidah" and "Shirk"!

Recently a few Muslim countries as you already know above vowed to exterminate all of Ibn Taymiyyah's deadly venom but they forgot that this ugly monster has more than one head and the vaccine they were using was from Saudi Arabia which  had no effect on its newborns!

Note: Don't just cut off one head (al sheikh) cut off all its heads period!


For those who are  infected by its deadly venom there is a  vaccine available... 



Imam Al-Daarmi in his Musnad has recorded that two misguided men came to Imam Ibn Seereen and said: “We shall recite a Hadith to you.”
Imam Ibn Seereen said: “No (you shall not).”
They said: “We shall recite a verse from the book of Allah to you.”
He again, replied: “No, either you both stand and leave otherwise I shall stand and leave.”

The narrator said: “They both left and one (or some) of the people said: “O Abu Bakr, what harm would come to you, if they recited a verse from the book of Allah?”

The Imam replied: “Indeed, I feared that if they recited a verse and interpreted it incorrectly, then that (incorrect interpretation) could have become established in my heart.”
--
Imam Al-Daarmi also recorded in his Musnad that a man from the deviated people asked Sayyiduna Ayyub Sakhtiyaani regarding (the meaning of) a word.
The narrator says: “He (Sayyiduna Ayyub Sakhtiyaani) turned away and gestured with his finger- not even half a word.”
Imam Al-Daarmi also recorded regarding Sayyiduna Sa’eed Bin Jubayr that a man asked him a question and he did not reply. Someone asked why he did not answer so he replied: “He is from amongst them (the deviants).”
--
Imam Badr Al-Deen Al-Ayni writes in his ‘sharah’ of Bukhari Sahreef:
“Abd-Allah Bin Amr,
Ibn Abbaas,
Ibn Abi Awfaa,
Jaabir, Anas Bin Maalik,
Abu Hurayrah,
Uqbah Bin Aamir and their peers (Allah is pleased with them all) used to advise their forthcoming generation that they must not do salaam to the Qadriyyah (a group of nominal Muslims in their time who were deviants), they must not visit them (when they are unwell), they must not perform Salah behind them and they must not perform Salah of Janazah on them when they die.”
--
Imam al Ghazali said: “The Salaf of the Ummah of Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alaihe-e-wa-sallam) agreed to condemn people with deviant ideas, and to abandon them, and to cut relations with them, and be hard in rebuking them, but to be mild in disagreements of juristic details” [Mustasfa, page,350]

Shaykh Abdal Qadir al-Jilani (d. 561AH) stated in his commentary to the above Hadith in Ghunyat at-Talibin (page, 90):
"The Believer should adapt himself to the Sunnah and to the Jama'ah. The Sunnah is the way shown by Rasulullah (Peace be upon him). The Jama'ah is composed of the things done unanimously by the Sahaba al-Kiram who lived in the time of the four caliphs called Khulafa' ar-Rashidin (and others in their path). A Muslim must prevent the multiplication of the men of bid'ah and keep away from them, and should not greet them (as given in many Hadith on this issue). Ahmad ibn Hanbal (rahimahullah), the Imam of our Madhhab, said that greeting a man of bid'ah meant loving him since it had been declared in a Hadith, 'Disseminate (your) greeting (salaam)! Love one another in this way!" He also said (pg. 143): "The title, Ahl as-Sunnah, which the innovators have expressed for themselves is not appropriate for them."  [Ghunyat at-Talibin]

Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari: "The Prophet informed us that towards the end of times, there will be Harj!

I (Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari) asked: "And what is Harj?" He(s) said: "Lies (deceit) and killings!"
We said: "Even more than now?"
He(s) said: "It will not be the kuffaar killing you, rather, you will be killing each other, until a person kills his neighbor, and his uncle and his cousin and his relatives!"
We said: "And while the book of Allah (Qur'an) will be still with us?!" He(s) said: "While the book of Allah will be still with you."
We said: "Subhan'Allaah!! And while our intellects will be conscious?!" 

He(s) said: "No, no, the intellects of the general masses at that time will be deceived! They will be following fools that have no intellects themselves. Most of them will be assuming they have a (legitimate) cause, but they will not have a (legitimate) cause."
[Ahmad, 19492, Ibn Majah, 3959, Ibn Hibban, 1870 - Silsilah Sahihah, 1682 - Authentic]
--
Anas Ibn Malik said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: 
There is no town that Dajjal will not enter except Makkah and Madinah. There is no entrance of its entrances that is not guarded by angels in rows. Dajjal will camp at a salty barren area, then Madinah will shake three times, and then every kafir and munafiq (hypocrite) will come out of it to join him. In a similar narration with the same final chain of transmission, he says instead: He shall come to the barren salty area of Juruf and set up his camp. And he also said: And then every male and female hypocrite will come out to join him. [Sahih Muslim]

The Blessed Prophet(s)(peace and blessings be upon him) advised: “The man is on the religion of his friend. So each one of you must take care in selecting who he befriends.” (Sunan Abu Dawood)
