From 1746 to 1924: When Wahhabis were not Muslims

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In 1746, long before he aligned himself with ibn Sa’ud, Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab sent a thirty-man delegation to the Sharif of Makkah, seeking permission for his followers and him to perform the hajj.

By then, his fitnah was well-known. The sharif, Shaykh Mas’ud ibn Sa’id (r.a.) suspected an ulterior motive for the hajj, an opportunity to disseminate his kufr.  Shaykh Mas’ud ibn Sa’id (r.a.), therefore, organised a debate between the Wahhabis and the scholars of Makkah and Madina.

Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab’s representatives, the flower of Wahhabi da’wah, were utterly crushed.  They were proven to be anthropomorphists, and heretics.  The qadhi of Makkah pronounced them kafirun and mushikin, and banned them from the hajj.  And the Wahhabis stayed banned until the House of Sa’ud conquered the Haramayn in 1924.

From 1746 to 1924, the scholars of Sunni Islam were unanimous that the Wahhabis were not Muslims, and were not allowed to perform the hajj.  In 1924, after the Battle of Makkah, the Saudis took control and the Wahhabis massacred the Muslims in front of the Ka’bah and the Rawdhah.  They desecrated the mosques and tore down the legacy of the ummah.  This is why they are in the Haramayn.

Now, we have so-called Muslim scholars, from Zaid Shakir to the Mufti of Singapore, apologising for them, and spitting on the scholars who came before and fought this kufr, scholars who were killed by the Wahhabis, or died in conflict.  Now, we have people who have made normative the innovated beliefs of this sect and brought them into the fold of Islam.  Now, we have a generation astray because the scholars have betrayed their trust and the people have lost their guidance.
