In the Name of Allaah the Most Compassionate Most Merciful
In response to the heresies of Muhammad 'Alee Jabata, Ash-Shaykh AbdulHameed Al-Hajooree, may Allaah preserve him, warns the Muslims of Nigeria regarding the evil of the man upon the Ummah.
Below is his warning:
All praise to Allaah, may His benedictions be upon the Messenger of Allaah. I bear the witness that there is none worthy of worship and that Muhammad is His slave and messenger – sallaLlaahu alahyi wa sallam.
Today 25th Dhul-Qa’dah, 1439, it got to me that a fellow called Muhammad ‘Alee Jibta (Jabata) who is a Nigerian has wantonly applied the description of kufr upon us. I want to tell this ignoramus and whoever is being deceived by him that those rulings (of excommunication from Islam) are better handled by the pious scholars whom Allaah has entrusted this affair to because Allaah says: Whenever there comes to them an affair of [public] safety or fear, they [the evildoers] will spread it about. Had they referred it to the Messenger and those who have been placed in charge of the affairs among them, those who can derive rulings among them would have known it…[Nisaa: 83].
This man is basically bereft of knowledge about the Manhaj of Salaf, he is ignorant about the Book of Allaah; he is ignorant about the pointers of the statements of the Messenger of Allaah –sallaLlaahu alahyi wa sallam. There is no surprise that he let loose this judgement (of kufr) on me and others beside me. He is no doubt a takfeeree in his popular judgements that contravene the consensus of the Muslims; they also contradict the statements of all the scholars because he has come with a heresy we don’t know any scholar having a similar view by saying kullu bid’ah kufr [all bid'a is disbelief]. There is none among the Muslims, as far as I know, who supports him though such might have come in the general descriptions of the statements of some scholars, but there is in their statements what negates his bid’a and statement.
Therefore this man should not be given any attention so also are his statements; none should look in their direction. I am thus warning the Muslim brothers in Nigeria to be wary of this ignoramus who is ignorant in his speeches, acts and about the Manhaj of Salaf, and the way of the Salaf. He has been influenced by the takfeeriyoon in Egypt and has adopted their dirty path, removing the Muslims from the pale of Islam. No scholar is safe from him nor the public or anybody. He claims to be upon the Sunnah! The Sunnah is free from Muhammad ‘Alee Jibta! The Sunnah of the Prophet stands upon the way of the Salaf. The Sunnah of the Prophet stands upon fairness in judgements, speeches and beliefs.
This man opposes all that…in what has got to us (about him), he has removed al-Hafidh Ibn Hajar from Islam! He will excommunicate whoever falls into (any) bid’ah. I asked him when we met at Haram, what is your view about Dua of Completion of Qur’aan, though we view it that it is not from the Sunnah and that it is an innovation (in the Deen)? He said it is kufr! What an ignoramus! What an ignoramus! O people of Nigeria, be wary of ignoramuses!
Ayoob Abu Tameem said: ‘It is from success for the young and the non-Arabs be guided to a scholar of Sunnah right from the first day.’ [O people of Nigeria,] if you get deceived by Muhammad ‘Alee Jibta, you will not be guided to what is good. This man is upon what opposes the Manhaj of Salaf. Send his speech to the Permanent Committee (in Saudi Arabia), send his speech to our Shaykh, al-Hajooree, send his speech to the Muslim scholars all over the world, you will find that they oppose the standpoint of this ignoramus in speech, act and beliefs.
None will follow him except an ignoramus like him, on his path and heresy. We have refuted their book, Kullu Bid’ah kufr, and we explained what it contains of their deep ignorance, and there distance from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger – sallaLlaahu alahyi wa sallam, and the statements of the people of knowledge.
This has been a short speech regarding the affair of this ignoramus. Do not give any attention to his removing the people from the fold of Islam. He is a novice. The Prophet – sallaLlaahu alahyi wa sallam – has said: ‘…a novice who speaks about the public matters…’ his type should not be given any attention. I am saying this to warn the Muslims of Nigeria lest they are deceived by him – someone that harbours the thoughts of the khawaarij, who does not know the belief of the Salaf via the way of Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jama’ah.
All perfection goes to Allaah. Allaah praise to Allaah the Lord of the Worlds.
