In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
They Say, “Why is Salaficentre So Forceful Even Though No Speaker Has Arrived Yet?”
The response to this is that we say to them that Abu Hurairah [may Allaah be pleased with him] said that Allaah’s Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] said, “A believer is not stung twice (by something) out of one and the same hole.” [Saheeh Al-Bukhaari 6133]
In the beginning of the Fitna of Al-Hajuri, some of us were in a state of procrastination and also adopted a gentle approach towards some of the aggressive supporters of Al-Hajuri, because those supporters of Al-Hajuri were our close companions for many years prior to the Fitna, and they thought that our lenient approach and desire for rectification was a sign of weakness, which led one of them to physically impose himself on the Masjid committee after returning from Yemen, and all of them demanded that Al-Hajuri be allowed to give a telephone linkup in the Masjid. By the grace of Allaah – first and foremost, our elders – at Maktabah Salafiyyah (Shaikh Abu Khadeejah and others) together with Shaikh Abdul Ilaah [may Allaah protect them] stood by us and contacted Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri [may Allaah protect him], who refuted the supporters of Al-Hajuri in our Masjid and thus the carriers of the Fitna of Al-Hajuri and their head Murad Al-Jazaa’iri [may Allaah guide and return them to the truth Aameen] were repelled. This – by the grace of Allaah – brought about clarity and calmness.
Then during the early days of the Fitna of Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi, some of us in the Masjid Committee dealt gently with some of the people who were pushing the Fitna from Saudi, because they were our close companions for many years prior to the Fitna. We constantly advised one of them to consult our elder brothers in the UK, adopted aÂ gentle approach towards them whilst hoping that they will turn away from their reckless behaviour by the Tawfeeq of Allaah, but they persisted, transgressed and thought that they can influence our stance due to the close relationship some of us had with them in the past, so we moved away after Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allaah protect him] refuted and exposed two of them who are well-known to us. Once again, one them has raised his stubborn head and returned with plotting, so we intended to send a clear message – whilst our elders at Salafipublications and elsewhere deal with them – that we are no longer in state of procrastination. May Allaah guide and return them to the truth, or protect us from their plots Aameen.
