A Salafi Accusing Another Salafi Of Opposing The Scholars Or Accusing Him Of Cursing Or Defaming The Scholars If He Disagrees With Him In Over A Religious Issue – Shaykh Ahmad An-Najjar

Shaykh Ahmad An-Najjar said, “Some people, when they disagree with you about an issue or view, will accuse you of “opposing the scholars” or of “cursing” or “defaming” them.

This is an exaggeration from two aspects:

One: it is understood from the apparent expression that he accuses you of opposing the ijmah (consensus) of the scholars, this is a lie as he intends that you oppose some and not others so as to cause people to harshly criticise and flee from you as a result of this void claim.

Two: disagreeing with one of the scholars, based on evidence, does not mean “cursing” or “defaming” the scholar. There is no connection between the two.


By Allah we [the Salafi mashaykh] see [what I was mentioning previously] occurring in reality.

People will ascribe statements to you which you would never at all even think to utter.

Also if they want people to flee from you they will say “you curse the scholars” or “you are arrogant and do not refer back to the scholars”. This is what the worst liars amongst them say. It is upon them to not speak, yet when they do they lie.

Al-Bukhaaree said, “We are upon the saying of Umar when he said: “I am going to tell you something which has been pre-destined for me to say, I do not know, perhaps it is in regards to my death, so whoever understands and remembers it must narrate it to others wherever his mount takes him, but if somebody is afraid that he does not understand it, then it is not permitted for anyone to lie against me.””[1]

I ask Allah to guide the misguided of the Muslims.”

1. This is from a long hadeeth about selection of the Caliph and pledging allegiance to him, narrated from Ibn Abbas (radi Allaahu ’anhu) in the Book of Hudud in Saheeh Bukhari.
