Deviated & Misguided Sects



Deviated & Misguided Sects

1. Al-Imam Abu Nasr al-Sijzi said:
“Ahl-us-Sunnah were trialed after these with a people who claim to be followers (of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam” and their harm if far greater than the harm of the Mu’tazila and those other than them. They are Abu Muhammad Ibn Kullaab, Abul ‘Abbas Al-Qalaanisi and Abul-Hasan Al-Ash’aree (before his repentance).”
‘Rad man Ankara-l-Harf was-Sawt’ (p.222-223).
2. Ibn Qudaama said:
“And we do not know amongst the innovators a group that hides their statements, not bold enough to openly portray them except the Zanaadiqa (heretics) and Ash’arees.”
‘Kitaab Al-Munaathara fil Qu’ran p.35.
3. Al-Imaam ibn Qaiyum said (quoting Al-Waleed Ibn Rushd Al-Maaliki Ibn Waleed’s statement and affirmed it without opposing him):
“If you were to ponder over what was opposed to this legislation in this time of corruption in terms of ta’weel (misinterpretation of Allaah’s attributes) it would become clear that these examples are correct. So the the first to change this great cure were the Khawaarij then the Mu’tazilah after them. Then it was the Ash’arees then the Sufis and then Abu Hamid (Al-Ghazali) came and flooded the village over.”
As-Sawaa’iq Al-Mursala’ (2/417).
4. Sheikh Sulaiman ibn Samhaan said:
“how could those who do not affirm Allaah being above the heavens and over His ‘Arsh be from Ahl-us-Sunnah? They say ‘the letters of the Qur’aan are created’ and that ‘Allaah does not speak with letters or sound’ and they ‘do not affirm that the believers will see their Lord in paradise with their own eyes.’ They affirm the seeing but they explain it to be increase in knowledge that Allaah creates in the heart of the seer. They say that ‘belief is just to affirm with the heart’ and they make other statements that are known to oppose what Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah are upon”
Lawaami’ Al-Anwaar Al-Bahiya (1/73).
5. Imaam Maalik on the Sufis:
“We were with Maalik and his companions were around him. A man from the people of Naseebeen said, “We have a people called Sufees who eat a lot and following that they mention lines of poetry and then stand up to dance”
Maalik (rahimahullah) said, “Are they children?”
He said, “No”
Maalik (rahimahullah) said, “Are they possessed?”
He said, “No, they are elderly and usually sane (when they are not doing that).”
Maalik (rahimahullah) said, “I have never heard anyone from the people of Islam doing this!!!”
The man said, “Well, they eat then they stand and dance. Some of them hitting their heads and some their faces.” So Maalik (rahimahullah) laughed and then stood up and went to his house. His companions said to the man, “You were fortunate with our companion, since we have sat with him for thirty odd years yet we never saw him laugh except on this day.”
Tarteeb al-Madaarik of Al-Qaadi ‘Iyaadh (2/54) at-Teeneesee.
6. Al-Baihaqee reports in Manaqib Ash-Shaafi’ee,
“If a man becomes a Sufee in the first part of the day, by the time Dhuhr comes upon him you will find him crazy.”
7. Ibrahim Ibn Mawlid mentions that Ash-Shafi’ee said,
“A Sufee cannot be a Sufee unless he has four characteristics; he is lazy, he eats too much, sleeps too much and excretes much.”
8. Ibn Al-Jawzi said that Ash-Shafi’ee said,
“The sanity of a person never returned to the one who remained with a Sufee for forty days.”
Talbees Iblees p.371.
8. Imam-ud-Deen As-Subki Ash-Shafi’ee said,
“Whoever is from these later generation Sufees such as Ibn Arabi and others, then they are misguided, ignorant and outside the path of Islam let alone be considered as scholars.”
Tanbeeh Al-Ghabi of Imam Burhaan Al-Biqaa’ee ash-Shaf’ee p.68.
9. The Maliki scholar Imam al-Qurtubi said,
As for what the Sufees have innovated then it is from that which no one disagrees to its forbiddance…”
Mentioned by Al-Alusi in ‘Ruh Al-Ma’aani’ (11/70) quoted from ‘Al-Fatawa Al-Maalikiyyah fi Af’aal As-Sufeeyyah’ by Abu Faris Abdulaziz Muhamad Al-Qirwaniy p.7.
