Wahhabi Mass Takfir of the Scholars & Muslims of Sham, the Hijaz, Egypt, Yemen & Iraq
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn Hasan Al ash-Shaykh, a descendant of the heretic, Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab, lived during the second Saudi-Wahhabi State. He was hailed as the second mujaddid after ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab by the Wahhabis. He wrote in his commentary of ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab’s Kitab at-Tawhid, Fath al-Majid Sharh Kitab at-Tawhid, “It is known that today the majority of scholars from different countries do not know their tawhid,” referring to Muslim countries, and continued, “except what the mushrikun approved, and they did not know the meaning of ‘al-ilahiyyah’ that ‘kalimat al-ikhlasw’ denied its attribution to anything other than Allah.” The “mushrikun” here is in reference to the ‘ulama of Makkah.
This Wahhabi shaykh also wrote in the same book that the people of Egypt are kuffar because they ‘worship’ Shaykh Ahmad al-Badawi (q.s.); the people of Iraq and those around them and the people of Oman are kuffar because they worship Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.); and the people of Sham are kuffar because they ‘worship’ Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din ibn al-‘Arabi (q.s.), as well as the people of Najd and Hijaz before the emergence of the Wahhabi ‘da’wah’, and the people of Yemen.
ibn Baz an-Najdi, the Wahhabi mufti of his time, attested to this mass takfir on the people of Egypt, Sham, Hijaz and Yemen. In his commentary of Fath al-Majid, he wrote, “The greatest of the gods of the people of Egypt is Ahmad al-Badawi,” “The people of Sham worship ibn al-‘Arabi,” and “people of Hijaz and Yemen worship idols, trees, stones and graves.”
