Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab Studied under a Naqshbandi Shaykh


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The principal teacher of the heretic, Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab, was Shaykh Muhammad Hayya as-Sindhi (r.a.).  Shaykh Muhammad Hayya as-Sindhi (r.a.) was a Sufi of the Naqshbandi Order.  It was Shaykh as-Sindhi (r.a.) who introduced ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab to the works of Shaykh Taqi’ ad-Din Ahmad ibn Taymiyyah (r.a.), a shaykh of the Qadiri Order. 

ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab delved into the works of Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah (r.a.), including the works the author himself repudiated as heretical.  He borrowed from them, synthesised them, and created his own sect.  Shaykh Muhammad Hayya as-Sindhi (r.a.) ultimately repudiated Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab, and his heretical ideas.
