A Concise and Adequate Response to the Scorn, Lies and Deceit of Daniel Haqiqatjou against Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all creation, may Allah extol the mention of our noble Prophet Muhammad in the highest company of Angels, bless him and give him peace and security―and his family, his Companions and all those who follow him correctly until the establishment of the Hour.

The tweet below is the view held by Haqiqatjou towards the people of Sunnah, Hadeeth and Salafiyyah of this era. He belittlingly labels them “Madkhalis” in his attempt to ascribe the Salafis to one of the major scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah of this age, the renowned Imām and scholar of Hadeeth, Rabeeʿ Ibn Hādī Al-Madkhali (may Allah preserve him). So Haqiqatjou has taken it upon himself to demean and revile the Salafis and anyone who praises Shaikh Rabeeʿ or takes from his books, writings, evidence-based refutations and fatwas. Daniel Haqitajou uses the term to intimidate, bully and frighten people from the Salafi Daʿwah, its scholars and callers. This has been the way of Ahlul-Bidʿah throughout history. The grave-worshippers, Sufis and Rāfidah labelled Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Hadeeth (i.e., the Salafis) as “Wahhābis”, which is intended as a derogatory term for those who read, study and benefit from the works of Tawheed and ʿAqeedah of Shaikhul-Islām Muhammad Ibn ʿAbdul-Wahhāb (may Allah’s mercy be upon him).

This method of revilement and belittlement is the way of Ahlul-Bidʿah wal-Ahwā (People of Innovation and Desires) in every age―for this reason the two Imāms of the early Salaf, Abu Hātim and Abu Zurʿah (may Allah’s mercy be upon them) stated: “The distinguishing sign of the people of innovation (Ahlul-Bidʿa) is that they revile Ahlul-Athar (the People of Narrations).”

They mentioned the terms employed by Ahul-Bidʿah to frighten people away from Ahlus-Sunnah: “The distinguishing sign of the heretics (zanādiqah) is that they label Ahlus-Sunnah as ‘the worthless ones’—and they seek to invalidate the Narrations. The distinguishing sign of the Jahmiyyah is that they label Ahlus-Sunnah with the term Mushabbihah (those who resemble Allah to the creation).” (See: The Foundation of the Sunnah and the Creed of Islam ― by Imāms Abū Zurʿah (died 264 AH) and Abū Hātim (died 277 AH)).

So, these wicked tactics employed by Haqiqatjou are not new.

The way of Ahlul-Bidʿah in opposing the Prophetic narrations is not to target the narrations themselves because that would expose them openly in front of the Ummah as opposers of the Prophet’s (peace and blessings be upon him) clear Sunnah and the Revelation. Instead, they attack the carriers of the Prophetic Narrations and the Hadeeth just as the Imams Abu Hātim and Abu Zurʿah (Allah’s mercy be upon them) stated.

Haqiqatjou said in his Tweet:

“Because Madkhalis are run by state intelligence agencies for propaganda purposes, they are only concerned with politics, and have reduced the entire religion of Islam to politics.”

Response: He believes that the Salafi scholars, the students of knowledge and the callers to Salafiyyah (whom he calls “Madkhalis”) are run by state intelligence agencies. We know, and he knows that this a great lie against the People of Sunnah and something impossible to prove! It is no different to accusing a praying, fasting and pious Muslim of being a munāfiq (a hypocrite) based only on one’s hatred of other Muslims. So, Haqiqatjou seeks to belittle and revile the Salafis and accuse them falsely―and Allah will call him to account for his lying.

He further claims that these so-called “Madkhalis” are only concerned with politics and they have reduced the entire religion of Islam to politics! This is where I question the sanity of this ignoramus, or does his devious mind actually think that Muslims will not investigate this claim? The Salafis are at the forefront of calling the people to the Tawheed of Allah and warning from Shirk, they call to the correct Creed and warn from Kufr, they call to the Sunnah of the Prophet (salallāhu ʿalaihi wasallam) and warn against bidʿah, they call to the Manhaj (Methodology) of the Salaf and warn from straying from their Path. Just look at the books the Salafi Shaikhs and students of knowledge teach such as ‘Usool as-Sunnah of Imām Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (d. 241 H), Sharhus-Sunnah of Imām Al-Barbahāri (d. 329 H), ʿAqeedat al-Wāsitiyyah of Imām Ibn Taymiyyah (728 H), Kitāb at-Tawheed of Imām Muhammad Ibn ʿAbdul-Wahhāb (d. 1206 H), etc. Furthermore, the Salafis teach people the regulations of worship through books such as ʿUmdat al-Ahkām, Buloogh al-Marām and ʿUmdat al-Fiqh―and likewise the books of Tafseer, Hadeeth, Arabic language and so on. So, this Haqiqatjou is a slanderer and scandal-monger, who seeks to malign the people of Sunnah, Hadeeth and Salafiyyah. It is clear to me (and Allah knows best) that he has never studied the books of Creed and Methodology of the Salaf―and this is further confirmed by the fact that he identifies himself with the deviated Indian sect of Deobandiyyah who have been refuted by the scholars of Sunnah, Hadeeth and Salafiyyah.

How does this ignoramus come to the conclusion that the Salafis have reduced the religion to politics when it is the Salafis who are constantly advising the Muslims to stop talking about the rulers, and leave politics to those who know from the people of knowledge―and rather focus on learning and worship, and purification from false practices, superstitions and innovations; and cultivate themselves, their families and the next generation upon the true ʿAqeedah, the pure Sunnah and righteous actions―this is methodology of Tasfiyah and Tarbiyah.

Are we to believe that Haqiqatjou doesn’t know this about the daʿwah of the Salafi scholars such as Al-Albāni, Ibn Bāz, Ibn ʿUthaimeen, Muqbil Ibn Hādi, Al-Fawzān, Rabeeʿ Al-Madkhali and so on?! Or that he doesn’t know this about our daʿwah in the West?! Look at our Salafi Sounds website, this website of mine, and our Salafi Bookstore website! Where do you see the evidence for his false saying that “they are only concerned with politics, and have reduced the entire religion of Islam to politics”?!

Haqiqatjou stated in his Tweet:

“First, Madkhalis teach that the most important Aqida issue is the difference between Ahl al-Sunna and the Kharijis. Madkhalis claim that anyone who verbally criticizes liberal government policies is a kharij deviant/apostate who must be surveilled, imprisoned or killed. By contrast, traditional Sunni works on Aqida do not make such claims. Moreover, while such works reject kharijism, they do not focus on it as a key Aqida issue.”

Response: Another lie! Where have the Salafis taught that the most important ʿaqeedah issue is the difference between Ahlus-Sunnah and the Khawārij? Bring a quote where a Salafi scholar or Shaikh Rabeeʿ al-Madkhali (may Allah preserve him) has said that “the most important Aqida issue is the difference between Ahl al-Sunna and the Kharijis”. Bring your proof if you speak the truth, Daniel Haqiqatjou!

The Salafi daʿwah calls to Tawheed above all else, and I am sure that this untruthful fabricator knows that. But in case this Daniel Haqiqatjou has managed to deceive some of the people, let me quote to the reader a decisive statement of Shaikh Rabeeʿ Al-Madkhali (may Allah preserve him) concerning the Daʿwah of Ahlus-Sunnah:

“Allah, the Most High, said regarding the Messengers who were the firmest in resolve and determination (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them):

شَرَعَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلدِّينِ مَا وَصَّىٰ بِهِۦ نُوحًۭا وَٱلَّذِىٓ أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا وَصَّيْنَا بِهِۦٓ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ وَمُوسَىٰ وَعِيسَىٰٓ ۖ أَنْ أَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلدِّينَ وَلَا تَتَفَرَّقُوا۟ فِيهِ ۚ كَبُرَ عَلَى ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ مَا تَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَيْهِ ۚ ٱللَّهُ يَجْتَبِىٓ إِلَيْهِ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَهْدِىٓ إِلَيْهِ مَن يُنِيبُ ١٣

‘He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, [O Muḥammad], and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus – to establish the religion and not be divided therein. Difficult for those who associate others with Allāh is that to which you invite them. Allāh chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back [to Him].’ (Ash-Shoorā: 13)

This was the call of all of the Messengers―and at the head of them are those firmest in resolve and determination. The Prophets of Allah who numbered 124,000 proceeded upon a single methodology in their daʿwah―and they began from a singular starting point, which was Tawheed (the call to the worship of Allah alone). This was the greatest affair and the greatest foundation which they carried to the whole of mankind throughout the ages despite their various societies, lands and time periods.

This proves that this is the single path that is obligatory to follow in calling people to Allah. It is the way laid down by Allah prescribed for His Prophets and His true and sincere followers. It is not permissible to alter that way or to change it, nor to turn away from it.” (See Manhaj al-Anbiyā’ fid-Daʿwati ilallāh Feehil-Hikmah wal-ʿAql (The Methodology of the Prophets in Calling to Allah: in that is Wisdom and Intelligence), p. 43, Dār al-Mirāth)

This one paragraph exposes the fabrication of Haqiqatjou against this noble Scholar and the Salafi daʿwah. Haqiqatjou hates the fact that the Salafis and their scholars prohibit speaking out openly and demonstrating publicly against the tyrannical Muslim rulers. In case the reader is in doubt regarding the position of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Hadeeth towards the tyrannical and wicked rulers, here are just a few narrations that make clear the Salafi position:

Muslim reported in his Sahīh (1847) from Wā’il Ibn Hujr that: Salamah Ibn Yazeed Al-Juʿfee asked Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ): “O Prophet of Allah, what do we do if we have rulers over us who demand their rights yet they withhold our rights?” He replied: “Listen to them and obey them [regardless]. Upon them is their burden and on you will be your burden.”

Imām Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (d. 241 H) stated in his work, Usūlus-Sunnah as is recorded in Sharhu Usūlil-I’tiqād of Al-Lālikā’ee (1/161): “It is not permissible for anyone among the people to fight the ruler and nor to rise up against him. And whosoever does that is an innovator, upon other than the Sunnah and upon other than the Straight Path.

Ibn Abī ‘Āsim reported in As-Sunnah (1026) and Ibn Hibbān in his Sahīh (4062) from ʿUbādah Ibn Sāmit (may Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: “Listen to the ruler and obey him when it is hard for you and when it is easy for you, whether you are pleased or displeased, and when others are given preference over you, and even when they consume your wealth and beat your back.” (Delared sahīh by Al-Albāni; see Dhilāl Al-Jannah and At-Ta’līqāt Al-Hisān).

Shaikh Al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah’s mercy be upon him) said: “Being patient with the tyranny of the rulers is a fundamental principle (aṣl) from the fundamentals of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah.” (Majmooʿ Al-Fatāwa 28/179) 

The Messenger of Allāh (salallāhu ʿalaihi wassallam) made it explicitly clear that it is forbidden to speak openly against the Muslim ruler, but rather to advise him in private, regardless of his tyranny: “Whosoever wishes to advise the Ruler, let him not do so openly. Rather he should take him by his hand and take him into seclusion [and advise him]. So if he accepts that from him it is in his favour, and if he does not accept, then at least he has fulfilled his duty.” (Authentically reported by Imām Ahmad in al-Musnad, no. 15359, as-Sunnah, no. 1097 with al-Albānī’s checking)

Just these few narrations show the foolish ignorance of Haqiqatjou’s saying, “Moreover, while such works reject kharijism, they do not focus on it as a key Aqida issue”!! Here are just a few more sayings of the scholars of Islam to settle the hearts of those who may be in doubt concerning whether rejection of the Khawārij is a matter of importance within the Creed of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah:

Al-Imām Ibn Al-Qattān Al-Fāsi (died 628H) stated: “They (Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah) have agreed (ajmaʿū) that hearing and obeying the ruler is obligatory. And they have agreed (ajmaʿū) that whoever gains authority of the affairs of the people of a country whether it was with their pleasure or by seizing power with brute force, whether the rulers are pious or tyrannical―then they are not to be rebelled against with the sword regardless of whether the leaders are oppressive or just.” (Al-Iqnāʿ fil-Ijmāʿ)

Shaikh Al-Islām Abu ʿUthmān Ismāʿeel As-Sābooni (died 449H) stated: “Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah do not hold that it is permissible to revolt against them (the rulers) even if they see from them abandoning justice and replacing it with tyranny and injury…” He ended his treatise with, “These sentences which I have affirmed in this chapter were the Creed of all of them (i.e. the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah). None of them differed regarding it with each other. Rather, they agreed by ijmāʿ with it all.” (See ʿAqīdatus-Salaf As-hābul-Hadeeth, p. 32)

Al-Imām Abul-Hasan Al-Ashʿari (may Allah’s mercy be upon him, died 324 H) stated: Ijmāʿ number 45: Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah have agreed upon hearing and obeying the rulers of the Muslims. And whoever gains authority over the people [in a country] whether with their pleasure or by overpowering, then obedience is given to them, whether they are righteous or sinful. It is not allowed to revolt against them regardless if they are tyrannical or just.” (Risālah ilā Ahlith-Thaghar, p. 168)

The two Imāms Abu Zurʿah Ar-Rāzi (died 264 H) and Abu Hātim Ar-Rāzi (died 277 H) stated an ijmāʿ: “We reached the scholars of all the townships of the Hijāz, Iraq, Shām, Yemen and from their beliefs was: We do not hold it is permissible to rebel against the rulers or to fight in times of tribulation. We hear and obey those Allah has placed in authority over us. We do not remove the hand of obedience. We follow the Sunnah and the Jamāʿah; and we avoid opposition, differing and splitting.” (Sharhu Usool Iʿtiqād Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah of Al-Lālikā’i, 1/197-199)

Haqiqatjou stated in his Tweet:

“Madkhalis promote the study of Aqida as a way to promote secularism.”

Response: So we study and teach the works of ʿAqeedah and the Manhaj of Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Abu Dawood, Ibn Mājah, Muslim, Al-Lālikā’ee, Al-Bukhāri, Ibn Abee Dawood, Ibn Qudāmah, Al-Aajurri, Ibn Battah, Al-Barbahāri, At-Tahāwee, Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, Ibn Abdul-Wahhāb, etc., because we want to promote secularism?! And you innovators withhold from reading and studying these works because you want to promote and uphold the Creed of Islam?! Enough said on this retarded point.

Haqiqatjou stated in his Tweet:

“Madkhalis hold that Muslims should devote themselves exclusively to the study of technical aqida issues (e.g., what is the precise meaning of “istawa ala al-‘arsh”?). Madkhalis teach that Muslims must not work for Sharia in state and society, until all are agreed upon these technical aqida issues. Madkhalis assume that this will take a long undefined period (possibly forever). During this period, Muslims should passively allow governments to implement liberal secularizing policies which remove Islam from state and society. Notice that while the Madkhali Ahl al-Bida pretend that they are concerned with Aqida, they have a bizarre unprecedented understanding of Aqida. For Madkhalis, the essence of proper Aqida is refraining from verbally criticizing liberal government policies, and passively cooperating in the removal of religion from state and society. Rather than reducing Islam to politics and liberal political propaganda, Madkhalis should study genuine Aqida, genuine Akhlaq, and genuine Sharia. Until they do so, they should be regarded as Ahl al-Bid’a who are at war with Ahl al-Sunna.”

Response: This ignoramus invents positions in his mind and then ascribes them to Ahlus-Sunnah and the Salafis. For the record: The Salafis (i.e., Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Hadeeth) do not say that one should “exclusively” devote himself to the “study of technical ʿaqeedah issues”. Rather, the Salafi begins by studying Tawheed and the pillars of Imān: the belief in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day and the Pre-Decree. He worships Allah alone and establishes the Prayer, pays the Zakāt, fasts the month of Ramadān, and strives to perform Hajj. He is good to his parents and treats them with kindness, he feeds the poor, and he enjoins the good and prohibits the evil in accordance with his knowledge and ability. He studies the Book of Allah and understands its meanings by reading the well-known books of Tafseer. The Salafis call to rectify the Ummah through the Prophetic methodology of Tasfiyah (purification) and Tarbiyah (cultivation).

Of course, Haqiqatjou would think that the precise meaning of Allah’s Ascension over the Throne is from the “technical ʿaqeedah issues” because he’s an ignorant follower of the Deobandis about whom he said, “I am a complete fan of that movement and I’ve had multiple Deobandi teachers… I’m a fanboy, no doubt about it”! It’s no wonder he hasn’t the foggiest idea of the importance of Allah’s istiwā ʿalal-ʿarsh (Allah’s ascension over the Throne)!

Here’s a quick lesson for this Haqiqatjou ‘fanboy’ of the Deobandis: Imām Abu Jaʿfar At-Tahāwī (d. 321H) stated in his ʿAqīdah, “And He (Allāh) has no need of the Throne or whatever is beneath it. He encompasses everything and is above it (وفوقه). And He has made His creation incapable of encompassing.” (Nos. 50-51)  

Shaikh Ibn ʿUthaimīn (may Allah’s mercy be upon him) said, “There appears in some books of the people of speculative theology (Ahlul-kalām such as the Deobandis) where they say: ‘It is not allowed to describe Allāh with being in a particular direction at all.’ They reject the highness of Allāh and that He is above, thinking that affirming this direction for Allāh necessitates placing limits upon Him. But this is not the case because we know that above the Throne there is nothing from the creation, there is none over it except Allāh, and there is absolutely nothing of His creation that encompasses or confines Him. So we say: Allāh is in the direction of above because Allāh’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)) said to the slave girl, ‘Where is Allāh?’  The term ‘where’ is seeking to know the place. So she replied: ‘Above the sky.’ So she affirmed that Allāh is above, and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) confirmed that and said: ‘Free her, for she is a believer.’ (Sahīh Muslim no. 33) So the direction affirmed for Allāh is not lowly – and Highness for Allāh is affirmed by the Fitrah (innate nature), sound intellect and the revealed text. The affirmation of direction for Allāh is not encompassment of Him because of the fact that His Footstool (Al-Kursī) extends over the Heavens and Earth, and it is the place of His two Feet, so how can anything from His creations confine him!? So He is in the direction of above without any confinement, and it is not permitted to say: ‘There is something that confines Him or encompasses Him.’ We say: There is over the ‘Arsh (the Throne) nothing besides Allāh, the Most Perfect, free of all imperfections.” (See Majmū’ Fatāwā war-Rasā’il Al-‘Uthaimīn 10/1131) 

To prove this point, we have a narration wherein Allāh’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “When Allāh completed the creation, He wrote in His Book that is with Him above the Throne (فوق العرش): ‘My mercy has prevailed over My anger.’” (Muslim no. 2751, Bukhārī no. 7404) So the Sunni, the Salafi, a person of Hadeeth believes with certainty that Allāh (the Most Perfect) is over His Throne. Furthermore, the Throne is above water, which is above the Footstool, which is above the seven heavens, which are above this earth.

Furthermore, this ignorant upstart and self-confessed Deobandi fanboy wants Muslims to participate in some sort of backlash against the governments of Muslim countries because according to him the Salafis hold that Muslims “should passively allow governments to implement liberal secularizing policies”. He and his likes want to incite the Muslims into open criticism against the rulers using social media platforms, leading to an escalation in fitnah, demonstrations and another “Arab Spring” style uprising in the Muslim countries, culminating in thousands of deaths as occurred not so long ago in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia and elsewhere―and while this upheaval decimates the Muslims, Daniel Haqiqatjou, Yasir Qadhi, Omer Suleiman and their ilk sit in the comfort of their homes in the US (and the West) sipping their ice-teas in front of devices and digital screens!

There occurs in a narration that: Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mentioned the rulers and the evil rulers, and he mentioned the leaders and the evil leaders. He said that the misguidance of some of them will fill what is between the sky and the earth! So he was asked: “O Messenger of Allah, should we not strike them with the sword?” He replied: “No. So long as they establish the prayer, then no.” (Reported by Al-Imām Nuʿaym Ibn Hammād (died 239H) in Kitāb Al-Fitan, 1/185, no. 491)

The Salafis do not say as Haqiqatjou claims that: “Muslims must not work for Sharia in state and society, until all are agreed upon these technical aqida issues.” This is not from the language of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Hadeeth (i.e., the Salafis)! Rather, the Salafis strive to learn and act upon the Shareeʿah as I have stated above in every aspect of their lives: worship, marriage, divorce, deaths (janāzah, etc.), births (ʿaqeeqah, etc.), inheritance, the halāl and harām, business transactions, judgements, hudood (prescribed punishments), etc. They cling to the judgement of Allah in every sphere of life, wal-hamdulillāh. The Salafis refute falsehood in all its forms whether it be shirk, bidʿah, sins, secularism, atheism, communism, unification of the religions, Western Liberalism, LGBT, radical feminism and so on. The books of the ʿulamā of Salafiyyah and their students are well-known and widespread and testify to all that I have said―so may Allah do with Haqiqatjou as he deserves, and expose him and his lies. I advise the reader to read the book: “The Methodology of the Prophets in Calling to Allah: In That is Wisdom and Intelligence” by the noble scholar, Shaikh Dr. Rabeeʿ Ibn Hādi al-Madkhalī (may Allah preserve him).

The methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah (i.e., the Salafis) with respect to the rulers is as Al-Imām Ibn Bāz (Allah’s mercy be upon him) stated: 

“It is not from the methodology of the early scholars (Salaf) to spread the mistakes and shortcomings of the rulers and to mention that from the pulpits, because that leads to disorder and chaos, and the absence of hearing and obeying the rulers in that which is good―and it leads to delving into affairs that are harmful and not of benefit. Instead, the way of the Salaf was to advise the sultan or ruler, and to write to him, or to inform the scholars who would then convey that advice to the ruler so that he is directed towards goodness. As for forbidding what is wrong without mentioning the name of the wrongdoer, such as forbidding and rebuking fornication, drinking alcohol and usury without mentioning the name of the doer―that is an obligation due to the general proofs [in the Sharīʿah]. And it is sufficient that the sins are refuted and warned against without mentioning the name of the one doing them, not the ruler and nor other than him.” He continued (rahimahullāh), “And when the ignorant Khawārij opened the door of evil in the time of the Caliph ʿUthmān (radiyallāhu ʿanhu), and they criticised him openly, the fitnah became severe, fighting and corruption ensued whose effects upon the people have not ceased till this day.” (Majmooʿ Al-Fatāwā of Ibn Bāz 8/210)

The Messenger of Allah (salallāhu ʿalaihi wasallam) said: “If one of you sees something from the ruler that he hates, let him not publicise it.” This is a clear hadeeth forbidding openly protesting and publicly speaking against the ruler. Then he gave the Muslims a method of correcting the ruler: “Rather you should take the ruler by his hand into seclusion and advise him privately. If he accepts the advice, then that is good. If he refuses, then you have fulfilled your duty.” (Hadeeth reported by Imām Ahmad in al-Musnad 3/403 no. 15369, As-Sunnah of Ibn Abī ʿĀsim 3/102 no. 910, graded sahīh by Al-Albānī and others).

Here is an example of how Salafis deal with sins that take place in Muslim countries: read the article, Inviting non-Muslim singers to Muslim countries, paying for them, organising concerts and festivals, listening to their songs, and free-mixing between the sexes ― Answered by Shaikhs: Abdullāh Al-Ghudayān, Sālih Al-Fawzān, Abdul-ʿAzīz Ālush-Shaykh, Bakr Abu Zayd.

In reality, it is the Daniel Haqiqatjou’s of the West who are the enemies of Ahlus-Sunnah, the haters of the Manhaj of Ahlul-Hadeeth and are opposers of the Path of the early Salaf. What books of Creed have they studied, and with whom? They belittle the study of the ʿAqeedah of the Salaf and claim that the Salafis “promote the study of Aqida as a way to promote secularism”. So, what books of ʿAqeedah and Minhāj do they promulgate? This Haqiqatjou is foolish, ignorant, devious, and drowned in misguidance―and yet it is he who has the audacity to proclaim about the Salafiyoon, “they should be regarded as Ahl al-Bid’a who are at war with Ahl al-Sunna.” Do not be deceived by these charlatans who ascribe themselves to the Sunnah of our noble Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

And all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds. May Allah grant us success―may the peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, Companions and whoever truly follows him till the Hour is established.

  1. Excellent response, May Allah reward you for taking the time to refute this Haqiqatjou who is misguiding thousands and maligning the Salafis with the foulest of names and mockery almost on a daily basis. It should also be noted that Haqiqatjou, by his own admission, is a supporter of the removal of the Shah in Iran and the implementation of Khomeini’s revolution. For Haqiqatjou, any type of difference including even the differences between the Shi’a and the Sunnis are “minor problems” and “small issues” and can be glossed over as long as one is combatting secularism and liberalism.

  2. Barakallah fekum Ustādh
    This reply is more than enough to shut this ignoramus person and to establish the truth against the false accusations of Daniel Haqiqatjou upon the thr people of sunnah.
    May Allah keep you firm upon The Book and The Sunnah of our beloved Messenger Muhammad ﷺ.

  3. Assalamu Alaykum,

    I can only agree with you wholeheartedly. It seems like Haqiqatjou has the same mentality as the khawarij and ikhwanul muslimeen who attempted to uproot rulers. He reminds me of the situation of Ali da’wah and Mohammed hijab. They are constantly inventing lies about Ahlus-Sunnah, whilst they are deviated. May Allah guide them and us.

    In the end, the people of bid’ah are clear and the people of sunnah are clear. Daniel Haqiqatjou is one of the many deviant callers; at the end of every one of their paths is destruction.

    We ask Allah the Almighty to preserve the Salafis and strengthen the da’wah, ‘Aameen.

  4. I‘ve warned against Daniel and I was told that we Can listen to Daniel‘s Talk about liberalism and against LGBTQ? Is this permissible and is the one who is saying that on the right manhaj?

    • As-salāmu ‘alaikum.

      Nothing should be taken from this innovator Haqiqatjou, he’s an enemy of the People of Sunnah, Hadeeth and Āthār. He’s an ignoramus who will lead people astray with his lies and distortions of reality. This man is more harmful to the Muslims than the Jews and Christians because the Muslim is not deceived by Judaism and Christianity, but they are easily deceived by these innovators who feign knowledge of the Religion.

      • To make this matter clearer inshaa’Allah, the Salaf (first three generations of this Ummah) would NOT even hear the Qur’an being recited (the greatest of all truths) from innovators, let alone anything else. Thus, when someone is known to be an innovator (even when they are still within the fold of Islam), we are to abandon actively listening to any speech from them in totality even when they speak the truth. Alhamdulillah, we have plenty of detailed refutations of liberalism from our teachers (whom senior scholars have recommended) such as Abu Khadeejah and Abu Iyaad, so we are not in need of Daniel Haqiqatjou in the first place.
