All quotes of Yahya Silmy as-Saylani are either from his own tapes, some directly transcribed from
English lectures and some translated from Tamil lectures to the best of my ability, or extracts from
his own e-mails and may Allh forgive me for any errors. Wherever I (Abu Asma) have stated
something from my words, you will find that I will say before it the words I say: and any words
found inside any quotes and between two hyphens e.g. i.e. from Saudi and between brackets ()
are my words in explaining the meaning. All timings that are given are as per the recordings that I
have.
DID THE SHAIKH MUQBIL RAHIMAHULLAH MAKE TAKFEER OF SAUDI ARABIA?
Although I have addressed this matter previously, Alhamdulillah, I would like to point out the reality
of Yahya Simys speech and the degree to which he speaks from his desire instead of relying on
authentic narrations since he has been so convinced that the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah made
Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) of Saudi Arabia during his early times and Yahya Silmy has spread this
rumour in many occasions. I will with the help of Allh subhanahu wataala respond to these
accusations of Yahya Silmy on the Shaikh Muqbil with the words of the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah
himself; all quotes from the words of the Shaikh are what were taken from the tape Mushahadaati fi
al-Mamlakah al-Arabiyyah as-Saudiyyah (My oberservations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) which
has been printed as a small booklet by Darul Aathar. I have provided copies of the relevant pages
from the booklet at the end for those who wish to read it in Arabic, walhamdulillah.
From the statements of Yahya Silmy are:
Time from: 00:18:59
we have no contradicting opinion on the fact that the Shaikh Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Wadiee
rahimahullahu taala is a great Imam, however during his initial period he had an opinion,
this is what made a big fitnah, what opinion? The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a Kfir
Country, and he was firm upon this (opinion), he will do openly in the Jumuah Khutbah
(sermon)
Time to: 00:19:17 Tape Naseehati li Ahlus Sunnah lis Shaikh Muqbil Lecture was in Tamil, the
subject was Yahya Silmy explaining the book of Shaikh Muqbil My Advice to the Ahlus Sunnah.
Time from: 00:05:30
Right, Shaikh Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Wadiee rahimahullahu taala, that he said in a Jumuah
Khutbah (sermon) that Saudi (Arabia) is a Kfir Country and that I said this (statement) and
that this is a lie told by Yahya Silmy and they have said this as a refutation. If this is told only
by Yahya Silmy it would have been easy to falsify, other thing is that this is not a speech told
by Shaikh Muqbil in a Khutbah, (this is a) world-wide known truth
Time to: 00:05:55 Tape Ilangaiyil dammaj makkalin kulappangalum apaandangalum adharkaana
saanrugalum nirupikkappatta aadhaarangalum Lecture and title in Tamil, translated means:
Troubles and Slander (false claims) of the people of Dammaj (made) in Sri Lanka, the evidences and
established proofs for it.

I say: Allh Azza Wajal says in His Noble Book:
_ ll ,l.. ,l.l _.. l.l _. ',!: _. . l.l _.. ',!: -. _. ',!: _..
_. ',!: .,, ,>l ,.| _ls _ ,`_: ",. __
Say (O Muhammad ): "O Allh! Possessor of the kingdom, You give the Kingdom to whom You
will, and You take the Kingdom from whom You will, and You endue with honour whom You will,
and You humiliate whom You will. In Your Hand is the good. Verily, You are Able to do All things.
[Surah aal-Imraan: 26]
Yahya Silmy, by the will of Allh subhanahu wataala, has brought disgrace upon himself by his words
above as I will explain below insha Allh:
The Imam Muqbil rahimahullah says in pages 19 to 20, begin quote:
Then after that is the affair of what I have written and I have been asked about this on more
than one occasion and also what I have spoken on the tapes, so I have commanded the
brother who prints my books (to ensure) that nothing remains in them (from) the speech on
Saudi (Arabia), since Allh subhanahu wataala says in His Noble Book:
_> ',> _..> | _..> _
is there any reward for good other than good?
[Surah ar-Rahman: 60]
And they (Saudi Arabia) have done good for us and honoured us greatly, so we are not from
those who face goodness with evil, (and that is) from the favour of Allh.
And I say this (by myself), no one has motivated me and no one has compelled me to say
this, rather I see by myself that it is compelling me to clear my own conscience.
Yes, I have indeed spoken and Im of the opinion that surely I was expelled from the Kingdom
(of Saudi Arabia) oppressively, yet La ilaaha illallaah how much I would persist in arguments
with those who make Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) of the Government of Saudi (Arabia)
whilst I say to them that it (Saudi Government) is not a Kfir (Government).
And I used to teach many lessons without touching on anything (from these issues)
walhamdulillah, rather patience and forbearing. As for them (Saudi Arabia) may Allh reward
them well, they have pardoned us and we too are like that.

Mushahadaati fi al-Mamlakah al-Arabiyyah as-Saudiyyah (My Oberservations in the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia), (Page 19 20, Darul Aathar print).
Page 4 of 21

I say: The Shaikh also said in pages 25 to 26, begin quote:
(So we say) this and ask Allh to give victory to you and us with that which He likes and
pleases Him. And the questions have increased (asking), have you withdrawn from your
speech regarding the governments? I have withdrawn from my speech on the Government
of Saudi (Arabia), and may Allh reward them well, as for other than it (Saudi Arabia), then
No. Then a questioner asks the Shaikh :
First question: There is a statement that you have given an introduction to a book, by
al-Maqdisi, in (the subject of) Takfeer of the Dawlah (government/ country), and that you
stated this in the introduction given to him; O Shaikh, what is the authenticity of this
(statement)?
The answer (of the Shaikh Muqbil): This is a lie, and I was at the time in Madinah and
subsequently in the prison in Madinah and in Riyadh, so when I came out (of the prison) I
was not making Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) on the Saudi Government, and how would I
make Takfeer of it (Saudi Governmet) for verily the Prophet sallAllhu alaihi wasallam says:
If a man declares his brother to be a Kfir (disbeliever), it will apply to one of them.
2

As such it is not permissible for us to make Takfeer of it i.e. Saudi Arabia whilst it is a
Muslim Country, Wallahul Mustaaan.

End quote.
I say:
Firstly: Did the Shaikh give an introduction to al-Maqdisis book with the view of Takfeer on the Saudi
Government?
When the Shaikh rahimahullah was questioned about this he responded by saying:
This is a lie
This clearly shows that the Shaikh had neither stated that nor given such an introduction.
Secondly: Did the Shaikh rahimahullah make Takfeer of the Government of Saudi Arabia during his
early time as claimed by Yahya Silmy and then withdraw from it later on? Let us see:
The Shaikhs words so when I came out (of the prison) I was not making Takfeer (to declare as
Kfir) on the Saudi Government shows that the Shaikh had not made Takfeer of the Saudi
Government even during his early time since he was imprisoned in Saudi Arabia during his early time
prior to him being expelled from it and not during his last stages of his sickness.
As for the Shaikhs statement:
I have withdrawn from my statements on the Government of Saudi (Arabia);

Hadith of Ibn Umar radiyallhu anhu in Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, No. 215, Darussalam print).

Mushahadaati fi al-Mamlakah al-Arabiyyah as-Saudiyyah (My Oberservations in the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia), (Page 25 26, Darul Aathar print).
Page 5 of 21

means that whatever that the Shaikh rahimahullah withdrew from his speech was something other
than making Takfeer of the Government of Saudi Arabia since he had clearly denied making Takfeer
of Saudi Arabia.
And it as very well-known that one does not need to withdraw from something that he had not said
but rather withdrawal is only from a previous speech that one has in fact said it and later wishes to
take it back.
And the Shaikhs words:
Yes, I have indeed spoken and Im of the opinion that surely I was expelled from the Kingdom (of
Saudi Arabia) oppressively, yet La ilaaha illallaah how much I would persist in arguments with those
who make Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) of the Government of Saudi (Arabia) whilst I say to them
that it (Saudi Government) is not a Kfir (Government).;
further clarify without any doubt that whatever that the Shaikh had spoken of concerning Saudi
Arabia was not of it being a Kfir Government since the Shaikh rahimahullah says as seen above that
although he was of the opinion that he was expelled from Saudi Arabia oppressively, he would still
argue with those making Takfeer of the Saudi Government in defence of Saudi Arabia saying to them
that it is not a Kfir Government.
Think O noble reader, May Allh have mercy upon you and us, if the Shaikh Muqbil had made Takfeer
of the Saudi Government, as claimed by Yahya Silmy, then how would it have been possible for him
to argue with those who claim that Saudi is a Kfir Government? If the Shaikh rahimahullah too had
been upon the same view, then why argue? As such it clearly shows that the Shaikh rahimahullah
was NOT of the view that the Government of Saudi Arabia is a Kfir Government, rather that it was
an Islamic Country as he himself rahimahullah said As such it is not permissible for us to make
Takfeer of it whilst it is a Muslim Country, walhamdulillah.
Besides what has already preceded in explanation, the Shaikh rahimahullah stated the very reason
why he had withdrawn from his speech with his words:
so I have commanded the brother who prints my books (to ensure) that nothing remains in them
(from) the speech on Saudi (Arabia), since Allh subhanahu wataala says in His Noble Book:
_> ',> _..> | _..> _
is there any reward for good other than good?
[Surah ar-Rahman: 60]
And they (Saudi Arabia) have done good for us and honoured us greatly, so we are not from those
who face goodness with evil, (and that is) from the favour of Allh.
I say: So if one was to think that the Shaikh rahimahullah had made Takfeer of Saudi Arabia in the
early stages and then withdrew from that during the last stages just because they did good for him
and honoured him greatly, it would be no different to one saying that Saudi Arabia had paid a price
to the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah to have him change his Fatwa concerning Saudi Arabia; and this
Page 6 of 21

would be from the most evil of thoughts about such an Imam of Ahlus Sunnah rahimahullah and
about Saudi Arabia which is a land of Tawheed and known for its goodness, may Allh preserve and
protect her and Allh subhanahu wataala has made such evil thoughts Haram when He taala said:
!!., _ `. ., ,..> ,. _. _Ll _| _-, _Ll '.| _
O You who believe! avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins
[Surah al-Hujuraat: 12]
O Noble Reader, I encourage you to ponder upon these words of the Shaikh rahimahullah:
This is a lie

so when I came out (of the prison) I was not making Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) on the
Saudi Government

and how would I make Takfeer of it (Saudi Government)

As such it is not permissible for us to make Takfeer of it whilst it is a Muslim Country

yet La ilaaha illallaah how much I would persist in arguments with those who make
Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) of the Government of Saudi (Arabia)

whilst I say to them that it (Saudi Government) is not a Kfir (Government)
Having understood the seriousness of the Shaikhs rahimahullah words above, the one who ponders
at how boldly Yahya Silmy accused the Shaikh of making Takfeer of Saudi Arabia when he said:
however during his initial period he had an opinion, this is what made a big fitnah, what opinion?
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a Kfir Country, and he was firm upon this (opinion), he will do
openly in the Jumuah Khutbah;
would no doubt realise the falsehood of Yahya Silmys accusation on this great Imam Muqbil
rahimahullah, walhamdulillah.
Yahya Silmy further says:
Time from: 00:19:18
During the last period, the Shaikh Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Wadiee rahimahullahu taala, on the
expense of the Prince Ahmed, was brought to Makkah, to Jeddah, to Madinah; all the Ulema
(scholars) got together compulsorily along with Shaikh Rabee and all the Ulema made him
(Shaikh Muqbil) sit in all the necessary places and convinced
4
him that this (Saudi Arabia) is

4
Although the lecture was in Tamil language, at this point Yahya Silmy uses the English word convince in his
speech.
Page 7 of 21

a Salafi Country, subsequent to that Shaikh Muqbil announced that Yes, surely I had a
wrong opinion, (now) I feel (or understand) that they are a pure Islamic Country
Time to: 00:19:48 Tape Naseehati li Ahlus Sunnah lis Shaikh Muqbil Lecture was in Tamil, the
subject was Yahya Silmy explaining the book of Shaikh Muqbil My Advice to the Ahlus Sunnah.
I say: So Yahya Silmy says that the Shaikh Muqbil was made to sit in various places by the scholars of
Saudi Arabia and then convinced him that Saudi Arabia is a Salafi Country whilst the Shaikh Muqbil
said in his own words:
so when I came out (of the prison) I was not making Takfeer (to pronounce as Kfir) on the Saudi
Government, and how would I make Takfeer of it (Saudi Government)
whilst I say to them that it (Saudi Government) is not a Kfir (Government)
Note: Although the lecture in which Yahya Silmy said this was in Tamil language, specifically wherein
he said the words all the Ulema made him (Shaikh Muqbil) sit in all the necessary places and
convinced him that this (Saudi Arabia) is a Salafi Country he himself used the English word
convince, so I say to Yahya Silmy:
O Yahya Silmy, if the Shaikh Muqbil was already of the opinion that the Saudi Government is NOT a
Kfir country as clearly seen above, what exactly did those scholars convince the Shaikh Muqbil
rahimahullah with? Do you know what the word convince means? It says:
In the Websters New World Dictionary, convince to overcome the doubts of, or convict of error,
or to persuade by argument or evidence ; and
In the WordWeb International Dictionary and Thesaurus, convince make (someone) agree,
understand, or realise the truth or validity of something; and
In the Little Oxford Dictionary, convince firmly persuade.
So what doubts of the Shaikh Muqbil did those Ulema overcome? Or what truth or validity did they
make him realise when he was already firm upon the opinion that Saudi Arabia was a Muslim
Country and that it is not permissible to make Takfeer of it? Will you not understand, O Yahya Silmy?
And as per Yahya Silmy all the Ulema (scholars) got together compulsorily and all the Ulema
made him (Shaikh Muqbil) sit in all the necessary places and convinced him whilst the Shaikh
Muqbil rahimahullah himself says:
And I say this (by myself), no one has motivated me and no one has compelled me to say this,
rather I see by myself that it is compelling me to clear my own conscience.
And O Yahya Silmy when you said all the Ulema (scholars) got together compulsorily, who
compelled these Ulema to get together and to do this task of convincing the Shaikh Muqbil? And
further who witnessed this great event that you have narrated without any reference which even the
Shaikh Muqbil himself has denied it when he said what has preceded above?
And as per Yahya Silmy, subsequent to this convincing Shaikh Muqbil announced that Yes, surely I
had a wrong opinion, (now) I feel (or understand) that they are a pure Islamic Country which was,
Page 8 of 21

as per the words of Yahya Silmy, During the last period whilst the Shaikh Muqbil said about his
condition and opinion when he came out of the prison in Saudi Arabia, which was before so many
years and prior to him being expelled from Saudi Arabia as:
so when I came out (of the prison) I was not making Takfeer (to pronounce as Kfir) on the Saudi
Government, and how would I make Takfeer of it (Saudi Government) for verily the Prophet
sallAllhu alaihi wasallam says:
If a man declares his brother to be a Kfir (disbeliever), it will apply to one of them.
5

As such it is not permissible for us to make Takfeer of it whilst it is a Muslim Country, Wallhul
Mustaaan.
I say: O Yahya Silmy, where exactly did the Shaikh Muqbil say as you claim Yes, surely I had a wrong
opinion, (now) I feel (or understand) that they are a pure Islamic Country? Did the Shaikh tell you
this in private thirty (30) years ago similar to your other stories from thirty (30) years before???
6

Further the publisher of the Shaikhs books, the Brother Saeed ibn Umar al-Hubaishan
waffaqahullah, says in a footnote where the Shaikh mentioned the words so I have commanded the
brother who prints my books (to ensure) that nothing remains in them (from) the speech on Saudi
(Arabia), in page 19; the following words:
And that was i.e. the Shaikh commanding the brother to ensure that nothing remains in the books
from the speech on Saudi Arabia was on the ninth and tenth of Muharram of the Year 1422H prior
to the speech of the Shaikh in the tape by two months in a long sitting concerning the printing of his
books rahimahullah, and (even) before that the Shaikh commanded us, at the time of printing his
book Tuhfatul Mujeeb, with the removal of any speech on Saudi (Arabia) in that book and that
was in the Year 1419H prior to his sickness and prior to him entering Saudi (Arabia).
Whist Yahya Silmy says During the last period, the Shaikh Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Wadiee rahimahullahu
taala, on the expense of the Prince Ahmed, was brought to Makkah, to Jeddah, to Madinah; all the
Ulema (scholars) got together compulsorily along with Shaikh Rabee and all the Ulema made him
(Shaikh Muqbil) sit in all the necessary places and convinced him that this (Saudi Arabia) is a Salafi
Country.
All perfect praise is due to Allh who exposed the falsehood of Yahya Silmys speech above. O Yahya
Silmy, be merciful towards yourself, and think for a moment who do you think is whispering these
falsehood in your ears? May Allh guide you!
Note: When I asked the Shaikh Abdul Hameed al-Hajoorie whether it was on the expense of the
Prince Ahmed that the Shaikh Muqbil was taken to Saudi Arabia, he responded by saying that what is
known is that the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah was taken to Saudi Arabia for medical treatment on
the expense of the Prince Naaif bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud rahimahullah who was the Interior Minister at
the time, who also met the Shaikh subsequent to his arrival in Saudi Arabia and may Allah reward the

Already preceded.

I have already exposed those claims of Yahya Silmy in my document The Accusations of Yahya Silmy
as-Saylani on the Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah of Our Time in His Own Words, Alhamdulillah.
Page 9 of 21

Prince Naaif well for what he had done from goodness. As for Yahya Silmys claim that it was on the
expense of Prince Ahmed, whether or not he means the same person, Allh knows best.
Know O Noble Reader, may Allh make you and I steadfast upon the truth, summarising from the
evidences that I have established above, with the help of Allh, from the very words of the Shaikh
Muqbil rahimahullah, we conclude with the following important conclusions insha Allh:
First: That the Shaikh Muqbil was NEITHER of the opinion that the Saudi Government was a
Kfir Government NOR that it was a Kfir Country as he clearly said:
I say to them that it (Saudi Government) is not a Kfir (Government)
Second: Rather the Shaikh Muqbil was of the opinion that the Saudi Government is a Muslim
Government and Country as he said:
As such it is not permissible for us to make Takfeer of it i.e. Saudi Arabia whilst it is a
Muslim Country
Third: The Shaikh rahimahullah was further of the opinion ) ( that it is
not permissible to make Takfeer of it (Saudi Arabia) as he said:
As such it is not permissible for us to make Takfeer of it i.e. Saudi Arabia whilst it is a
Muslim Country
Fourth: That the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah NEITHER made Takfeer of the Government of
Saudi Arabia NOR of Saudi Arabia as a Country as the Shaikh himself said:
I was not making Takfeer (to pronounce as Kfir) on the Saudi Government
Fifth: That the Shaikh did not have such a view in the early times and then change later on
since he clearly said:
so when I came out (of the prison) I was not making Takfeer (to declare as Kfir) on the
Saudi Government, and how would I make Takfeer of it (Saudi Government)
Sixth: That whatever that the Shaikh rahimahullah withdrew from his speech when he said:
so I have commanded the brother who prints my books (to ensure) that nothing remains
in them (from) the speech on Saudi (Arabia); and
I have withdrawn from my speech on the Government of Saudi (Arabia);
was from something other than making Takfeer of the Government of Saudi Arabia since he
had clearly denied making Takfeer of Saudi Arabia and further affirmed that it is a Muslim
country when he said:
Yes, I have indeed spoken and Im of the opinion that surely I was expelled from the
Kingdom (of Saudi Arabia) oppressively, yet La ilaaha illallaah how much I would persist in
arguments with those who make Takfeer of the Government of Saudi (Arabia) whilst I say
to them that it (Saudi Government) is not a Kfir (Government).; and
Page 10 of 21

As such it is not permissible for us to make Takfeer of it i.e. Saudi Arabia whilst it is a
Muslim Country
And it is quite possible that a person wishes to withdraw from some of his speech from the
past for whatever justifiable reason as seen by him and we do not say that the Shaikh Muqbil
rahimahullah was Masoom (infallible) rather he was human and no doubt humans err, but
to abuse that situation and to create a false impression that whatever that the Shaikh
rahimahullah had withdrawn from is the Takfeer of Saudi Arabia; is an oppression on that
individual especially when his previous speech has clarified beyond any doubt that he was
not of that view, denied making Takfeer of Saudi Arabia and further defended that country
for its Islam against those who make Takfeer of it.
Seventh: That there was no need for anyone to convince the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah
that Saudi Arabia is Muslim country since the Shaikh was of that same opinion as already
seen from his speech.

Eighth: That no one had compelled the Shaikh Muqbil to say what he said in his speech
during his sickness in Saudi Arabia as the Shaikh clearly states:
And I say this (by myself), no one has motivated me and no one has compelled me to say
this, rather I see by myself that it is compelling me to clear my own conscience.
I ask Allh, by His Most Beautiful Names and Loftiest and Highest Attributes that he saves us and the
Muslims from this fitnah created by Yahya Silmy, for by Allh, this is none other than a fitnah (trial)
that a Daee (caller) claiming to be calling to Allh subhanahu wataala upon Dawah as-Salafiyyah,
speaks of an Imam of Ahlus Sunnah in this manner or even worse speaks out with lies and spreads
such lies openly and that too in a gathering meant to be teaching the book of the Shaikh Muqbil
rahimahullah himself, Wallahul mustaaan.
And I advice Yahya Silmy to have fear of Allh and to speak truthfully! O Yahya Silmy,
waffaqakallah, fear Allh and speak truthfully! O Yahya Silmy, waffaqakallah, fear Allh and speak
truthfully, may Allh guide you and rectify your affairs, as He taala said:
!!., _ `. ., 1. < l .,. . _ _l`.`, >l >l..s -, >l
>,.: _. _L`, < .`. .1 ! !.,Ls _
O You who believe! keep Your duty to Allh and fear him, and speak (Always) the truth.
He will direct You to do righteous good deeds and will forgive You Your sins. and Whosoever
obeys Allh and his Messenger (Sal-Allaahu 'alayhe Wa Sallam) He has indeed achieved a great
achievement (i.e. He will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to enter Paradise).
[Surah al-Ahzab: 70 71]

Page 11 of 21

And know that Allh has criticized lying and mentioned it from the traits of the disbelievers when He
said:
!..| _ ., ,.>l _ _`..`, .,!:, < ,.l` `> _,..l _
it is Only those who believe not In the Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations,
etc.) of Allh, who fabricate falsehood, and it is they who are liars.
[Surah an-Nahl: 105]
And the Prophet sallallhu alaihi wasallam warned us from the dangers of lying when he said on the
authority of Abdullah ibn Masood radiyAllhu anhu:
Al-Kadhib (falsehood, lying) leads to Al-Fujur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing, etc), and Al-Fujur
leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man keeps on telling lies till he is written as a liar before Allh.
And in the narration of Muslim:
And beware of lying, for lying leads to a man may continue to tell lies and endeavour to
tell lies, till he is written with Allh as a liar.
7

Even amongst the Sahaba (companions) of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam prior to accepting
Islam and other than them; lying was considered to be blameworthy as seen in the hadith of
Abdullah ibn Abbas radiyallahu anhu when he said in the Hadith involving Heraclius, the Ruler of
Syria:
Abu Sufyn
8
added, Heraclius told his translator to tell my companions that he wanted to put
some questions to me regarding that man (the Prophet) and that if I told a lie they (my companions)
should contradict me and in the narration of Muslim and if he tells me a lie, let them refute
him. ; and
Abu Sufyn added, By Allh! Had I not been afraid of my companions labeling me a liar, I would
not have spoken the truth about the Prophet. and in the narration of Muslim By Allh,
were it not for the fear that the people would say that I have lied, I would have lied. .
And the Noble Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam was known for his truthfulness even
before his Prophet hood as seen below:
Heraclius said, Have you ever accused him
9
of telling lies before his claim (to be a Prophet)?
I
10
replied, No. and in the narration of Muslim He said: Did you ever accuse him of lying
before he said what he said? I said: No. .

And Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam attributed the habit of repeated lying to the signs of a
hypocrite when he said on the authority of Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu:
The signs of a hypocrite are three:
1. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie to the end of the hadith.
12

Whilst Allh subhanahu wataala has praised truthfulness and mentioned it amongst the traits of the
the Believers when He said:

Verily, the Muslims (those who submit to Allh In Islm) men and women, the believers men and
women (who believe In Islmic Monotheism), the men and the women who are obedient (to
Allh), the men and women who are truthful (in their speech and deeds), the men and the women
who are patient (in performing All the duties which Allh has ordered and In abstaining from All
that Allh has forbidden), the men and the women who are humble (before their Lord Allh), the
men and the women who give Sadaqt (i.e. Zakt, and alms, etc.), the men and the women who
observe Saum (fast) (the obligatory fasting during the month of Ramadn, and the optional
Nawfil fasting), the men and the women who Guard their chastity (from illegal sexual acts) and
the men and the women who Remember Allh much with their hearts and tongues (while sitting,
standing, lying, etc. for more than 300 times extra over the remembrance of Allh during the five
compulsory congregational prayers) or praying extra additional Nawfil prayers of night In the Last
part of night, etc.) Allh has prepared for them Forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise).
[Surah al-Ahzab: 35]
And He taala further commanded us to be with those who are truthful:

O You who believe! be afraid of Allh, and be with those who are true (in Words and deeds).

And the Messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam commended truthfulness as in the Hadith of Abdullah
ibn Masood radiyallahu anhu:
As-Sidq (truthfulness) leads to Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, and every act of obedience to
Allh) and Al-Birr leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a Siddiq
(truthful person).
And in the narration of Muslim:
I enjoin you to be truthful, for truthfulness leads A man may continue to tell the truth and
endeavour to be truthful utill he is recorded with Allh as truthful.
13

And the Aayaat and narrations concerning the blameworthiness of lies and falsehood and the
praiseworthiness of truthfulness are many and this is not the place to mention them all.
And we have, Alhamdulillah, previously explained how a completely connected chain of truthful
narrators falls apart simply due to the presence of ONE named individual whose condition was not
known amongst the scholars of hadith
14
. So O Yahya Silmy, what of your narrations and your Dawah
(call) when your condition is known as openly lying upon the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah? May Allh
make you understand the errors of your way and make you upright and benefit you, ad-Dawah as-
Salafiyyah and the Muslims!
And let not the reader think that we have exceeded our limits in bringing these evidences to the
attention of the Muslims openly since this is not the first instance of this nature and we have
previously clarified and adviced Yahya Silmy:
By our document written with our Brother Nawwas ibn Muhammad al-Hindi waffaqahullah:
Extracts from - A response to Scholars on Shaikh Yahya, when he (Silmy) warned against
studying at Darul Hadith of Dammaj; and

By the document of our Brother Nawwas ibn Muhammad al-Hindi waffaqahullah:
Demolishing of Yahya Silmys Falsehoods and Deceptions by way of Enlightening Facts and
Definitive Evidences when he (Silmy) falsely denied the statement of the Shaikh Rabee
al-Madkhali hafizhahullah and blamed our brothers of cheating the Muslims when they
published the said statement of the Shaikh Rabee; and

By our document: Yahya Silmy as-Saylani's Clarification of His Statements on Shaikh Muqbil
rahimahullah in His Own Words when he (Silmy) accused the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah of
similar accusations without any evidence; and

By our document: Yahya Silmy's Accusations on the Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah of Our Time in
His Own Words when he accused the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah and the Shaikh Rabee
al-Madkhali hafizhahullah of similar accusations without any evidence; and

His Own Words.

All of this is, in addition to what the two Shaikhs Abu Muhammad Abdul Hameed al-Hajoorie
and Abu Muadh Hussain al-Hateebi hafizhahumallah have already refuted on and adviced
Yahya Silmy with, in their respective refutations, walhamdulillah.
Allh Azza Wajal says:
_>.l >.. . `s., _|| ,>' ``.!, .`-!, ., _s >..l ,.l` `>
_>l.l _
let there arise out of You a group of people inviting to All that is good (Islm), enjoining Al-Ma'rf
(i.e. Islmic Monotheism and All that Islm orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar
(polytheism and disbelief and All that Islm has forbidden). and it is they who are the successful.
[Surah aal-Imran: 104]
And the Noblest of Prophets, Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam said:
Whoever among you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand (by taking action); if he
cannot, then with his tongue (by speaking out); and if he cannot, then with his heart (by hating it
and feeling it is wrong), and that is the weakest of faith.
15

And Shaik-ul-Islm Abul Abbas Ahmed Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah says:
As for the one who manifests his Munkaraat (reprehensible acts), al-Inkaar (repudiation,
criticizing, etc) upon him openly (publicly) becomes Wajib (compulsory), and that would not be
Gheebah (backbiting) upon him
16

And we have in more than one occasion as detailed above, adviced Yahya Silmy about the dangers of
narrating without verification, narrating without Isnaad (chain of narration), accusing the scholars of
Ahlus Sunnah, spreading falsehood, etc; and no doubt his continuance upon these reprehensible
actions and the open spreading of such falsehood and rejection of the evidences that have been
established firmly upon him and the fact that we have not seen any signs of Tawbah (repentance)
which would necessitate al-Islaah (rectification) and al-Bayaan (informing); we are left with no other
choice but to bring his falsehood to the open, Wallahu alam, Wallahul Mustaaan and I ask Allh for
as-Salaamah and al-Aafiyah.
From the amazing of affairs is that this same speech of the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah
Mushahadaati fi al-Mamlakah al-Arabiyyah as-Saudiyyah (My oberservations in the Kingdom of
Saudi Arabia) which we have quoted from; has been referred to in an article posted in the Salaf
Council website
17
which is connected

to Yahya Silmys main website. Should Yahya Silmy have

knowledge of these words of the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah in which the Shaikh has clearly denied
making Takfeer of Saudi Arabia as we have already seen; then I do not comprehend how Yahya Silmy,
who claims to praise and respect the Shaikh Muqbil as an Imam of Ahlus Sunnah could have
slandered the Shaikh Muqbil rahimahullah with these lies and false accusations in the manner he has
done and Allh knowst best! To say a thing and contradict it in ones own actions is clearly not from
the traits of a Salafi Daee and Allh has criticized such behavior when He Said:
!!., _ `.., l _l1 . !. l-. _ ` !.1 . ..s < l1 . !.
_l - . _
2. O You who believe! why do You Say that which You do not do?
3. Most hateful it is with Allh that You Say that which You do not do.
[Surah as-Saff: 2 3]
I advice myself and those brothers who are with Yahya Silmy, waffaqahumullah, that they pay
attention to what Allh subhanahu wataala said:
. !- . _ls l _1`.l . ! -. _ls . .`-l 1. < | < .,.:
,!1-l _
help You one another In AlBirr and AtTaqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help
one another In sin and transgression. and fear Allh. Verily, Allh is Severe In punishment.
[Surah al-Maidah: 2]
And that they do not help Yahya Silmy in spreading these falsehood and slander upon the scholars of
Ahlus Sunnah since it would no doubt fall into the category of helping towards sin and transgression
which Allh subhanahu wataala has forbidden and also forbidden helping towards it as seen in the
yah and that they advice Yahya Silmy to seek advice from the Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah and that he
rectifies his mistakes and repents from them and we ask Allh to give success to me, Yahya Silmy, the
brothers and sisters who are with him and the Muslims.
And I end this response by asking Allh subhanahu wataala to benefit me with the advices that I
have put forth, Yahya Silmy and the Muslims and that He forgives me for any errors and that He
keeps my intentions upright.
And Allh knows best, all perfect praise is due to Him alone and may He extol His blessings of peace
upon Muhammad, his family and his companions. Written by Abu Asma Milhan ibn Haniffa
as-Sirilaanki on the Second of Ramadan in the Year 1433H in Dar-ul-Hadith of Dammaj.
