Al-’Abbaad Asked if, when a Shaikh Calls Someone an Innovator, the Student is Obliged to Adopt that Stance

December 14, 2013 § 1 Comment


Questioner: If one of the Shaikhs said about someone, ‘He is an innovator,’ is the student obliged to adopt this stance of calling that person an innovator? Or must he know why the person was called an innovator? Because this declaration of a person to be an innovator may have been applied to someone who is on the Sunnah?

Al-’Abbaad: Not everyone’s statements in this issue are accepted, if it comes from someone like Shaikh Ibn Baaz or like Shaikh Ibn ’Uthaimeen then it is possible that his statement is relied on, as for anyone and everyone, then such statements are not taken from them.

§ One Response to Al-’Abbaad Asked if, when a Shaikh Calls Someone an Innovator, the Student is Obliged to Adopt that Stance

  • Tara says:

    BarakAllahu feekum. Do you know the ruling for someone who says that they don’t follow a particular mufti/shaykh because he doesn’t say what his manhaj is? I have found no evidence that the mashaykh warned against this person and the excuse I heard is that, the mashaykh don’t know about everyone so that is why there isn’t any warning. If that is the case, shouldn’t we then approach the mashaykh regarding this person and until they give a fatwa regarding him, refrain from sharing our doubts about this person to others? Is there a ruling which states it is wajib for anyone to declare their manhaj and if they don’t, they are not to be taken from?
