“The blessing of studying Islaamic knowledge and the blessing of the prescence of scholars amidst us, by Allaah, my brothers is indeed a great blessing that many people are deprived of. And many of them yearn to see our scholars – just to look at them once or to sit with them for an hour. If one of them speaks to him over the telephone, it is as if his heart is broken by his not being able to see him…”

Is being silent regarding the truth considered ‘fleeing from fitnaah’?

The Noble & Virtuous Scholar, The Muhadith of Yemen, Yahya Bin ‘Ali Al-Hajooree (hafidhahullaah) was asked: Is being silent regarding the truth considered ‘fleeing from fitnaah’?

Shaikh Yahya Bin ‘Ali Al-Hajooree (hafidhahullaah) answered:

Rather being silent is the source of fitnah; it’s not fleeing from fitnah. Rather silence regarding the truth is that which plunges the people into fitnah. Patience is a must while clarifying to the people.

(And remember) when Allaah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) to make it (the news of the coming of Prophet Muhammad and the religious knowledge) known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it… (Aal-‘Imraan, ayah 187)

Verily those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and guidance… (Al-Baqarah, ayah 159)

So the speech from the people of knowledge which is supported with proofs is guidance. How many individuals from the people are kept in heedlessness, so you pave their way to having insight and to the path of guidance. It is not permissible to conceal the truth from the people.

Do you think everyone knows that which the ‘Alim (Scholar) knows? Never by Allaah! This is something that nations are ignorant of, from the aspects of knowledge and its realities. So since the situation is like that, it’s a must that the commandment of Allaah is implemented with regards to that. And Allaah did not order us with that except due to its importance.

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allaah… (Al-Baqarah, ayah 159)

They are cursed by Allaah since they did not fulill His commandment nor His legislation.

and cursed by the cursers (Al-Baqarah, ayah 159)

And cursed by the cursers since they deceived them and concealed from them the evidences and guidance.

Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed). These, I will accept their repentance. And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (Al-Baqarah, ayah 160)

So that’s how it is. It’s obligatory to be patient upon the truth. May it be pleasing to the one who it pleases, and anger he who it angers – like that without a need for flattery (smooth talk). By Allaah, we see ourselves flattering in certain situations, but we ask Allaah to pardon us.

The scholars of Jarh wa-Ta’deel (criticism & praise) in our time are few. Do you think that is just (so) that we say ‘so and so is mistaken’ and ‘so and so is correct’? Or ‘so and so is (weak in narrations)’ and ‘so and so is (trustworthy in narrations)’? Or rather, ‘(so and so) is in groups and sects’ and ‘(so and so) is in great trials and tribulations’? (To say such is just and is the responsibility of) those who are the nullifiers and subduers (of falsehood) and who are deserving of it, (as it relates) to the issues surrounding and pertaining to praising the people of truth and clarifying the truth from the falsehood, and from other than that. And Allaah’s aid is sought.

In the name of Allah. The One who sent His final messenger with light to help the blind to see. The One who there is absolutely no deity worthy of worship but Him. Peace and blessing be upon His final messenger, his family, his companions and whoever follows their way. The following was taken from “ Idmanut Turruq lee Ma’rifatil Furuq” this book was written by Abu Ammar Yasir Al-Adenee. Shaykh Yahya Al-Hajooree(may Allah preserve him)said “ Yasir Al-Adenee is a teacher and preacher. He currently resides in Hadramout. He has published a book titled” Hedieya fee Tarteeb Faw’id Beedieyah wa Neehiya”. Taken from At-Taabaqat on page 65.

Tawheed calls for the belief in Allah, the Books, Messengers, Angels, the Last Day and the Qadr .

‘Aqeedah is more general and has more detail in its subject than Tawheed does.

Tawheed affirms facts by proof only.

While ‘Aqeedah affirms Tawheed, refutes doubtful issues, sheds light on the misguided ideologies’ claims, and disputes with the other religions and sects.

(end of definition from Idmanut Turruq)

Extra point of benefit.

*The Salaf used to use the word Sunnah or Sharee’ah as a synonym with ‘Aqeedah. We find books written by great Imams that explain the ‘Aqeedah of Ahulus Sunnah wa Jama’ah. Here are just a few books that establish this point;

1. Usulus Sunnah by Al-Humaydee 219 H

2. As-Sunnah by Abdullah ibn Ahmed ibn Hanbal 290 H

3. Sharus Sunnah by Al-Muzanee 264 H

4. As-Sunnah by Ibn Abee ‘As-sim 287 H

5. As-Sunnah by Al-Murwazee 294 H

6. As-Sunnah by Al-Khalal 311 H

7. Sharus Sunnah By Imam Al-Barbaharee 329 H

8. Usul As-Sunnah by Ibn Abee Zamaneen 399 H

9. As-Sharee’ah Imam Al-Ajuree 360 H
