`Abdur-Rahman `Abdul-Khaliq
  Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq Persists in Innovation
Source: Jamaa'ah Waahidah of Shaikh Rabee' bin Haadee
Article ID : NDV090001  


Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq, when Bannaawism began to slowly take over his person, spoke with the multiplicity of groups and parties, i.e. justified the existence of all the various Islamic groups present today, despite their differences in aqidah and manhaj and their falling into the acts of kufr and shirk (in the case of some). This being in direct conflict with the Book and the Sunnah, the Ulamaa began to refute him and advise him. And this continued for a number of years. When Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq did not listen, one of the students of knowledge from Kuwait took some of the errors of Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq to Imaam Ibn Baaz (amongst them, his saying about the multiplicity of groups). Imaam Ibn Baaz refuted these claims and advised the latter to correct himself.

Following this, Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq made an open display of his supposed repentance and that he had taken it all back. His open supposed repentance took place on 20th September 1994, in an article called "Tanbeehaat wa Ta’aqqubaat" in which he glorified the Permanent Committee and called them "my fathers" and so and he also made many lies against the Salafi Mashayikh such as Shaikh Rabee’ (refer to Jamaa’ah Waahidah of Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haadee) . His repentance was somewhat exaggerated, and while previously he had called our Ulamaa, "mummified, absent in mind and present in body", "perfect and complete ignorance", "their da’wah does not mean anything" and other such great calamities (which we have documented elsewhere, GRV070004), he then showed the outward love and respect.

Then in a cassette, which is at least 15 months after his open repentance, there occur a number of questions and answers, in which the great deceit of Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq is uncovered and his persistence in innovation and heresy laid bare. Stated Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haadee:

"The questioner asks him (Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq) about the verdict of Shaikh Abdul-Azeez Bin Baaz which was in al-Muslimoon magazine (23rd December 1995) and which also contained the refutations of al-Qaradaawi, the Straying Innovator, against it. He answered the question by giving a diplomatic answer which indicated that he was not actually pleased with this fatwaa (i.e. of Ibn Baaz) and this was after his recantation by a long time since his recantation took place on 14th Rabee’ ul-Awwal 1415H, corresponding to 20th September 1994. Then the questioner said to him, "O Shaikh, in relation to the multiplicity of Islamic grous in the Islamic world and their abundance, such as al-Ikhwaan ul-Muslimoon, Jamaa’at ut-Tabligh, Hizb ut-Tahreer and others, we hear two views. One saying this is a good thing because the good points (of this multiplicity) outweigh the bad points. Another orientation which says that this is differing and splitting and this is not allowed because its bad points are greater than its good points?" To which Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq replied, "Indeed this is a good thing absolutely and there are no negative points in this at all, in splitting and differing. This is not correct…" The questioner said after, "There is an orientation which states that evil of the multiplicity of groups in the Islamic world outweighs the good, what is your view on this?". To which he replied, "This is destruction (hadm), destruction, destruction this is. This is an action of destruction".

This is how Abdur-Rahmaan acts, and does not care at all about his recantation in front of the esteemed Shaikh Ibn Baaz and nor in front of the others from the Ulamaa and understanding ones, those in front of whom he announced publicly, in front of them, his recantation… and Allaah knows best whether he considers the people and their Scholars to be "a battalion of mummified people"… So where is the respect of Abdur-Rahmaan for Ibn Baz and the Hai’ah Kibaar ul-Ulamaa, which he claims he does, when it is the case that he does not even give respect for other Scholars and other people…" (an-Nasr ul-Azeez, pp. 163-164)


And that which puts and end to all the loyalists of Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq and those entrenched in his innovatory principles, is the following statement of Imaam Ibn Baaz.

The Noble Imaam, Ibn Baaz was asked, "May Allaah be benevolent to you, the hadeeth of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) concerning the division of the Ummah, "My Ummah will soon split seventy-three sects…", so is the Jamaa’at ut-Tabligh, alongside what they have of acts of Shirk and innovation, and likewise the Ikhwaan ul-Muslimeen, alongside what they have of partisanship, splitting the ranks, using force against the Wullaat al-Umoor, and not hearing and obeying (the Rulers), so do these two sects enter (into those sects mentioned in the hadeeth)?

He replied, "They enter into the seventy-two sects. Whoever opposes the aqidah of Ahl us-Sunnah enters into the seventy-two sects. The intent behind his saying, "My Ummah…" means the Ummah that has responded to his call (Ummat al-Ijaabah), meaning they have responded to the call and have made apparent their following of him, and they are the seventy-three sects. The saved and secure one is the one that follows him and shows steadfastness (istiqaamah) upon his religion. And as for the seventy-two sects, amongst them is the disbeliever, the sinner and the innovator, they are of various types."

The questioner then said, "Meaning, these two sects (Ikhwaan and Tabligh) are included within those seventy-two sects?" The Shaikh replied, "Yes, from those seventy-two sects. And so are the Murji’ah and others. The Murji’ah and Khawarij, some of the People of Knowledge consider them to be from the Unbelievers, however, they are actually from the generality of the seventy-two sects." End of the Shaikh’s words. This exists in the Shaikh’s lesson on "Sharh ul-Muntaqaa", recorded on cassette, in Taa’if in the year 1418H.


Allaah the Most High says, "And be not of Al­Mushrikûn (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, polytheists, idolaters, etc.). Of those who split up their religion (i.e. who left the true Islâmic Monotheism), and became sects, [i.e. they invented new things in the religion (Bid'ah), and followed their vain desires], each sect rejoicing in that which is with it." (Ar-Rum 30:31-32).

And from al-Irbaad ibn Saariyah (radiallaahu anhu) who said: "Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) gave us an admonition which caused the eyes to shed tears and the hearts to fear, so we said, "O Messenger of Allaah, this is as if it were a farewell sermon, so with what do you counsel us?" So he said: "I have left you upon clear proof , its night is like its day, no one deviates from it except one who is destroyed, and whoever lives long from amongst you will see great controversy. So stick to what you know from my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the orthodox, rightly-guided caliphs - cling to that with your molar teeth, and stick to obedience even if it is to an Abyssinian slave, since the believer is like a submissive camel, wherever he is led, he follows" (Ahmad (4/126), Ibn Maajah (no. 43), al-Haakim (1/96) and others – Hasan).

Anas bin Maalik reported that Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said, "This Ummah will split into seventy-three sects, all of them in the Hellfire except for one." They asked, "And what is that sect?" He replied, "Those who are upon what I and my companions are upon today". (Tabaraanee in Mu’jamus-Sagheer no. 724, Tirmidhee, 2641, al-Haakim, 1/125).

Abdullaah bin Mas’ood reported, "Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) drew a line for us, then he said, "This is Allaah’s way." Then he drew lines to the right and to the left and said, "These are differing ways, upon each of these ways is a devil (Shaytaan) calling to it." Then he recited, "And this is My Straight Path, so follow it, and do not follow (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path." (a-An’aam 6:153)." (Ahmad 1/435 and at-Tayaaleesee no. 244).

Stated the Lord, Owner of Majesty and Splendor, "Surely, Shaitân (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire." (Fatir 35:6)

And these texts are by way of example only, since there are scores of their likes in the Book of our Lord and the statements of our Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam).

Then there comes this Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul-Khaaliq with his Bannaawi da’wah and says that what Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) have said "is not correct" and is but "destruction" and that other than what Allaah and His Messenger have said is "absolute goodness". And all of this after the hujjah was established against him and after he had made a "public repentance" for speaking with the permissibility of the multiplicity of groups and parties, and from Allaah is the refuge.
