The 'Wahhabis' on The Rights of the Anbiyaa and Awliyaa
Here is an excerpt one of the writings of Shaykh Abd al-Aziz al-Haseen pertaining to the rights of the Prophets and the rights of the Awliyaa. It is in al-Durar al-Saniyyah (2/175-176):
And the right due to the Prophets is to have faith in them and in what they brought, to follow the light which was revealed to them, to support them, respect them, show loyalty to them and to place love of them over one's soul, wealth, offspring and the whole of mankind. And the sign of truthfulness in that is following their guidance, having faith in whatever they brought from their Lord, having faith in their miracles (mu'jazaat), and [belief] that they conveyed the messages of their Lord, fulfilled the trust (placed upon them), and sincerely advised the Ummah, and that Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) is their seal (the last of them), and the most superior of them. [Also] to affirm their intercession (shafaa'ah) which Allaah, the Sublime, affirmed in His Book, which is the one that takes place after the permission of their Lord has been granted for it for those with whom He is pleased from the people of Tawhid, and that the Lofty Station (al-Maqam al-Mahmud) which Allah has mentioned in His Book is for our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam).
One of the many rumours circulated by the adversaries during the reform movement of Shaykh Ibn Abd al-Wahhaab is that he and his followers deny the intercession of the Prophet(s), revile the Awliyaa and reject their miracles. This was a form of intellectual terrorism thrust on the masses by their elites because they (the elites) feared the loss of beneficial interests and wished to maintain the status quo. The writings of Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, his students and offspring are replete with their honouring the Prophets and Awliyaa and affirmation of their intercession and their miracles. All of the propaganda you see coming from the Sufis is based upon the rumours and slanders of the adversaries of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab, but you will not see them citing from the writings of the Shaykh or his offspring to provide an unbiased, objective presentation of what they were upon.
