Shaykh Abd al-Muhsin al-Abbaad, after quoting many statements from Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab's works in his rebuttals of the allegations of mass takfir made against him by his adversaries, made [in (شرح شروط الصلاة وأركانها وواجباتها), pp. 78-80], the following pertinent comment:

أفضت بذكر النقول عن شيخ الإسلام محمد بن عبد الوهاب في تقرير هذه المسألة، وهي أن تكفير المعين الذي وقع في الشرك في العبادة لجهله، إنما يكون بعد البيان له وإقامة الحجة، لا قبل ذلك، لأن من الجاهلين والحاقدين عليه وعلى دعوته، المبنية على الكتاب والسّنّة، وما كان عليه سلف الأمّة، من يشنع عليه وينفّر من دعوته، برميه بتكفير المسلمين، والتكفير بالعموم، وهو إنما يكفر من قامت عليه الحجة، وبانت له المحجة، ولأن نفراً يسيراً من طلبة العلم من أهل السّنّة فيما علمت يعيبون على من يقرّر ذلك وهو عيب لما قرّره شيخا الإسلام، ابن تيمية ومحمد بن عبد الوهاب وغيرهما من أهل العلم.

ومع ذلك فإن الخطأ في العفو في الأمور المشتبهة، خير من الخطأ في العقوبة، وهم في عيبهم القول الذي قرّره الشيخان والحرص على خلافه يفسحون المجال للمتربصين بأهل السّنّة الذين يصطادون في الماء العكر، فيردّدون صدى نعيق أعداء الإسلام والمسلمين، الذين يزعمون أن تطرف من ابتلي بالتفجير والتدمير، راجع إلى دراسة مناهج التعليم المبنية على كتب الشيخ محمد بن عبد الوهاب وغيره من أهل السّنّة، وهو بهت وزور ممن افتراه أو ردّده.

فإن الذين ردّدوا هذا النعيق من أهل هذه البلاد، قد درسوا كما درس غيرهم هذه المناهج، ولم يحصل لهم ضرر منها بل حصل النفع العظيم منها لكل من شاء الله هدايته وتوفيقه، وإنما حصل التطرف من هؤلاء المتطرفين لفهومهم الخاطئة التي شذّوا بها وخرجوا عن جماعة المسلمين، وقدوتهم في ذلك الخوارج الذين شذّوا وخرجوا على الصحابة نتيجة لفهومهم الخاطئة، ولكل قوم وارث، والله المستعان

I have taken liberties in mentioning the quotes from Shaykh al-Islam Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab in corroborating this issue, which is that making takfir of a specific person who falls into Shirk in worship due to his ignorance, that it only takes place after clarification to him and establishing the proof, not before that. This is because from the ignoramuses and those jealous of him and his da'wah that is based upon the Book and the Sunnah and what the Salaf of the ummah were upon, were those who would revile him and divert others from his da'wah by accusing him of making takfir of the Muslims, and making generalized takfir. But he only makes takfir of the one whom the proof has been established, and the clear way has become clear to him. And there is a small band of students of knowledge from Ahl al-Sunnah in what I know who criticise those who affirm this matter, but this in reality is criticism of what the two Shaykhs of Islam, Ibn Taymiyyah and Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhab and others from the people of knowledge have corroborated (in this matter).

And alongside this, falling into error on the side of lenience, pardon in obscure, unclear matters is better than falling on the side of error in matters of punishment. And when they rebuke this position which the two Shaykhs have corroborated, and encouraging opposition to it, they open up the door for those who lie in wait for Ahl al-Sunnah, those who stirk in the murky waters. And hence they repeat they echo the screams of the enemies of Islam and the Muslims who claim that the extremism of those put to trial with bombings and destruction returns back to the curriculum of study based upon the books of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab and others from Ahl al-Sunnah. This is a slander and falsehood from the one who fabricated it or repeated it.

For those who have repeated this scream from the people of this land have also studied this same curriculum yet no harm has appeared from them. Rather, great benefit has come from it for everyone for whom Allaah willed guidance and granting of success. Extremism only arose from those extremists due to their incorrect understandings through which they separated from and exited from the body of the Muslims, and their role-model in that is [the sect of the] Kharijites who revolted against the Companions as a result of their faulty understandings, and "every people have an inheritor", and from Allaah is aid sought.


We can repeat our comments from a previous article as they are relevant to the topic and also because the Shaykh said that "every people have an inheritor," its befitting we put the dots on the letters:

These and other statements of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab in his many letters, whilst refuting the slanders of his adversaries, also indicate another very important matter that is worthy of mention: That he is free and innocent of the Kharijites who appeared in the 20th century after reading the books of Sayyid Qutb, groups such as al-Takfir wal-Hijrah. These groups made mass takfir of the Muslims, following Sayyid Qutb's mass takfir of the entire Muslim ummah without exception (see here, here, here,here, and here), and they also made takfir of those who did not agree with their takfir and likewise, they required emigration to themselves.

As for the da'wah of the Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab it was founded upon that of the Prophets and Messengers of calling to the Uluhiyyah of Allaah, the Exalted. As for the da'wah of the 20th century Kharijites, it was founded upon a Marxist Socialist reading of Islamic history through which the absence of the implementation of social justice by rulers, and the absence of their implementation of the Shariah in all affairs without exception, demanded a Leninist or Marxist type revolution of the masses in order to "snatch the Haakimiyyah" and give it back to Allaah - all of which was distilled in the mind and writings of Sayyid Qutb, who before this period in his life had spent fifteen years devouring Western materialist philosophies. Bear in mind these people were making this call of theirs in Egypt, the land in which the Ubaydi Baatinee Ismaa'eelees established their shirk centuries ago and which it was never really cleansed from and in which the idols (tombs) of al-Badawi, Sinjar, Dusuqi and others continued to be worshipped besides Allaah (to this day) and where millions flock to them, seeking blessings and benefit and repulsion of harm.

So it should be apparent to the intelligent person who respects his intellect what great difference there lies between Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab, his da'wah creed and methodology (the Methodology of the Prophets in Da'wah to Allaah) and the da'wah and methodologies of the Kharijites of the 20th century. For one called to the cleansing of the land of the oppression against the right of the Lord of all men (singling out Allaah with all forms and types of worship), and the others left alone the idols of al-Badawi, Sinjar, Dusuqi and others in their land (the greatest oppression) and called instead for mass populist or elite vanguard revolutions to help establish the social justice of Islam (mixed with Communism of course) to remove the oppression encroaching upon the rights of men (economic and social justice through the ahkaam).
