Shaykh Rabee said, “This spreads the ghulu (fanaticism) that Allah fights.
He (Allah) said, “O People of the Scripture ( Jews and Christians)! Do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, “Three”; desist – it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.” (Surah an-Nisaa, verse 171).
And His statement (Sallahu alayhi was salam) “Do not praise me like the Christians praised Isa Bin Maryam. For verily I am only a servant, hence say (regarding me) Allah’s Servant and Messenger.”
Extremism, even regarding the Prophet (sallahu alayhi was sallam) is not permissible, so how about these poor individuals that came latter?
(Or) how about if they were misguided innovators?
…Uniting because of a particular individual (or a particular dawah organisation or masjid); becoming enemies because of him (or becoming enemies due to loyalty towards a particular dawah organisation or masjid); going to extremes because of him (or a specific dawah organisation or masjid) and sanctifying him (or a specific dawah organisation or masjid) this is impermissible.
Allegiance is for Allah and anger is for Allah’s sake, even to the extent that we love the prophets for Allah, and we love the righteous for Allah’s sake, and the non believer’s and innovator’s we hate them for Allah’s the Blessed and Exalteds sake.
So allegiance is for Allah, and the love is for His sake, and hatred is for His sake.
If (the above mentioned actions are) done in a way other than this, then they are done for shaytan’s sake and there is nothing (in these actions) directed to Allah.”
