Anyone who speaks against those who rebel against the governments is quickly labelled by the people of innovation with vile nicknames such as “Government Agent”, “Scholars for Dollars” and so on. But, what can they say about Abī ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Muqbil al-Wādiʿī?
What can they say about Shaykh Muqbil and his students who lived in mud houses? What can they say about Shaykh Muqbil and his students who lived in the desert seeking knowledge? Shaykh Muqbil and his students, who were not financially supported by any government? Shaykh Muqbil and his students who did not possess any luxury foods, clothes or cars? Shaykh Muqbil and his students were Salafīs. They refuted Ibn Lāden, Abū Hamza and all those who spill the blood of innocent people unlawfully.
The people of Innovation and falsehood turn to lies and mockery as did the Pagan Quraysh when they could not handle the truth that Muḥammad ﷺ brought.
Shaykh Muqbil bin Hādī al-Wādiʿī:
ʿUsāmah ibn Lāden, the first thing that I advised his emissary with was that if he wishes to benefit Islam and the Muslims then he should return to the south of his country and open schools, and support the students of knowledge. And he should support the Islamic call in the south, (but) No! He desires to pick up arms (and he said) “As for this, we are not able to do so.”
O’ Allah, deal with ʿUsāmah!! And deal with Abū Hamza and deal with anyone who wishes to create trials and tribulations in the Islamic lands. O’ Allah, shatter his back!
The Messenger ﷺ said, “If two Muslims take out their swords to fight each other, then both of them will be from amongst the people of the Hell-Fire.” It was said to the Prophet ﷺ, “This is for the killer but what of the killed one?” He replied, “The killed one had the intention to kill his brother.”
And they (ibn Lāden and his likes) deceive the people as if they are those whom the Prophet ﷺ said about, “There will emerge from Aden 12,000 people. They will fight in the path of Allah. They are the best of people between me and them, for they will aid the Religion of Allah.”
(However) you aid your desires. You destroy the Religion of Allah. You destroy the Religion of Allah! You are the cause of damage upon the Muslims in Britain, France, and America and upon the Muslims in their own lands (who receive problems) from their governments, since they perceive the people are like yourselves.
They perceive the people (in their lands) are like you, (people) who spill blood. (But) no, no! We are the first to have rejected him, by the blessing of my Lord, we were (the Salafīs) are the first to reject him. These letters arrived from Jordan, “It is not as you have said O’ Abā ʿAbd al-Raḥmān…” and from Kuwait it was read, “You should not be doing this…” (Refuting Ibn Lāden and his likes).
But if we carry out any good then we do not care about those who oppose (us). Are you aware of anyone from the people of Sunnah in Yemen who has warned against this mischievous group? We are not aware of anyone, if you know anyone then speak of O’ brothers!
The People of Sunnah in Yemen (believe) that people like ʿUsāmah wish to incite (tribulation). We were the ones who have rejected him and published tapes in warning against him. (His group) were killed by the grace of Allah by (the government) of Yemen, due to our warnings and this is only due to the grace of Allah.
