PART 1: Some Beneficial Points Extracted Ahmad Baazmool’s Criticism Against Shiakh Saalim At-Taweel

All praise is due to Allaah [The Lord of Mankind, Jinn and all that exists]. Indeed the good and happy end result is for those who fear their Lord. There is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah and Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. And may the Salaah and Salaam be upon him (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), his family, his companions and those who follow their path till the establishment of the hour. To proceed
Indeed, it has been reported by Imaam Ahmad and Imaam Muslim (rahimahumallaah) on the authority of Abdullaah Ibn Amr Ibn Aas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa) that the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ‘‘Indeed, there was not a Prophet before me except that it was incumbent upon him to guide his Ummah to the good of that which he knew there was (goodness) for them and to warn them against what he knew there was evil for them.”
Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiree (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated that this above hadeeth and the hadeeth of Tameem Ad-Daari about giving Naseehah to the Ummah are two clear texts showing the obligation upon the scholars to give advice to the Ummah; and this is done in order to protect the Sunnah and the sound creed from the false interpretations of the ignorant ones, the distortions of those going beyond bounds, the false claims of the liars and the dubious affairs of those misguided ones who confound truth with falsehood. [paraphrased and abridged: for further details, see malhoodhaat Wa Tanbeehaat of Shaikh Abdullaah Ibn Salfeeq Adh-Dhufayree:paage9]

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated in his reply to Dr Ibraaheem Ruhayli (may Allaah rectify his affair): ”unfortunately, there are people who conceal refutations against the people of falsehood and error. They are enthusiastic in (giving) them allegiance and defending them; and they (show) harshness and disapproval towards those who refute falsehood and error. They betray them with a severe betrayal and they make the people ardent that this (action) of theirs is softness and wisdom, whilst it is from the severest types of calamity and trials—the very affair that encourages the people of falsehood to persist upon their falsehood and spread their trials and tribulations worldwide. If only these type of people realised the dangerous end results of their stances.”
Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated in his first reply to Dr Ibraaheem Ruhayli: Indeed amongst the greatest fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa-ah is the obligation of unity and togetherness, and prohibition from splitting and differing; and this unity is to be upon the truth, by way of the truth and for the sake of the truth.[Abridged]
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) stated in his criticism against Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel (may Allaah rectify his affair): Indeed, in this era in which the people of innovation seek to make excuses for those people who speak ill of the ahaadeeth of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam); however they do not make excuses for the Salafis in their criticisms against Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel despite the fact that there have occurred affairs in opposition to the salafi Manhaj from him.    Imaam Ibn Rajab spoke the truth when he stated: It is obligatory upon everyone to whom the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has been conveyed and he knows about it, that he clarifies it to the Ummah and give them advice.  He is to command them to follow the command of the Prophet even if it opposes the opinion of the great ones of this Ummah; for indeed the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has more right to be extolled and followed than the opinion of a great one whose command in some affairs is wrong…. Indeed, the companions and the scholars after them refuted the views of everyone that opposed the authentic Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) because the Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) is more beloved to them. His command is above the command of every person; therefore if another command opposes the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), then indeed the command of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) has more right to be given precedence and followedParaphrased and Abridged
Some of the Clear Errors of Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel (may Allaah rectify his affair)
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated in the second part of his criticisms against Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel: There are three affairs showing the confirmation of the state of affairs of Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel: Firstly: These affairs are based on Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel’s audible speech. Secondly: These affairs are/were found in his website. Thirdly: Trustworthy and reliable narrators testified to these affairs. [end of quote]
 Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel praises some of the affiliates of the deviant organization (Ihyaa Turaath) and holds that the differing between Ihyaa Turaath and the Salafis is not an affair of creed [Note: This Title is the compiler's]
Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool stated:
Shaikh Saalim Taweel is a man claiming to be Salafi and that he is from the Salafis; but there is to be found in his Manhaj, in his speech and in his statements many things that obligates warning against him, and he has been advised regarding that (i.e. his errors). And from this is his praise for some of the men of Ihyaa Turaath found in statement of his titled: Raddul Isaa-a Bil-Ihsaan Ta’qeeb Alaa Ad-Duktoor Khaalid Sultaan), he said: I praise Allaah, I love my Muslim brotherswhether they are from Jam-iyyah Ihyaa Turaath or outside of it, and I acknowledge for them their rights and preserve their sanctity for them ….I hold that there are from amongst those who ascribe themselves to Jamaa-atu At-turaath people of virtue, knowledge and religion ……And amongst them are people of the Qur’aan, such as the virtuous Shaikh Mohammed Hamoud Al Najdi, Sheikh Dawood As-oo-see, Sheikh Ibraahim Al Ansari, Sheikh FaisalGhazzaar and other than them…..[end of paraphrased quote]
Reader: This is a clear praise Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel gave to some of those ascribing to the extremely deviated organization Ihyaa Turaath, so even if Shaikh Saalim argues that he has criticisms against Ihyaa Turaath, this is no more than the criticisms of Ali Halabi (The innovator) against Ihyaa Turaath as stated by Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool.   Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool stated about Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel’s criticisms against Ihyaa Turaath: ”Yes, this is similar to what Ali Halabi refuted Ihyaa Turaath, whilst he is their companion, and eating and drinking with them. Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) mentioned from the characteristics of the people of the book that: ”Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud (David) and ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds. They used not to forbid one another from the Munkar (wrong, evil-doing, sins, polytheism, disbelief, etc.) which they committed. Vile indeed was what they used to do…..’’
Therefore, Shaikh Ahmad Baazmool pointed out that Shaikh Saalim At-Taweel’s criticisms against the deviant organization Ihyaa Turaath is no more than that of Ali Halabi The Innovator. The Shaikh also pointed out in his first criticism that Shaikh Saalim does not hold that the differences between the Salafis and the deviants of Ihyaa Turaath is a differing in the affair of creed. Reader: Indeed, this view of Shaikh Saalim is false and in opposition to the reality of that which the scholars have revealed concerning the extreme deviations of this organization. Therefore, the reader must visit this link to find out for himself, for indeed the scholars have clearly pointed out that the differing between this deviant organization (Ihyaa Turaath) and the Salafis is a differing in the affairs of creed.
And Allaah knows best
