Sufis often claim that the texts of the Quran and the Sunnah have an outer, apparent meaning, and as well, an inner, hidden meaning. They hold that the outer, apparent meaning is known to those who practice orthodox Islam, while the inner and hidden meanings of the Quran and Sunnah are known only to their teacher and order. These teachers will often claim that since they have advanced to the inner and hidden meaning of Islam, they no longer need to pray or fast, something that not even the Prophets were excused from.

Listen to Reality Of Sufi Shaikhs – Abu Khadeejah Abdul Waahid 

One of the most dangerous of the contemporary movements is the group known as the Naqshbandi Tariqat. Like most deviant groups, they claim that the Muslim masses are ignorant and are therefore in need of a Sheikh (leader) who is supposed to possess the secret knowledge of the unseen. They also claim that all religious texts have an obvious outer meaning known to the masses and a hidden meaning known only to the Sheikh, and that the masses are unable to contact Allah on their own and hence are in need of an intermediary (Sheikh) who will get them close to Allah if given unquestionable and unconditional obedience. – Posted from: The Naqshabandi Tariqah Unveiled

THE ISLAMIC BELIEFNo hidden knowledge in Islaam, everything is given in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

The Prophet Muhammad (sallAllahu `alaihi wa sallam) said in an authentic hadith -

I have not left anything which Allah ordered you with, except that I have ordered you with it, nor anything that Allah forbade you, except that I forbade you from it.” (Sahih, al-Baihaqee 7:76, Arabic)

THE NAQSHBANDI BELIEF: Sheikh has hidden knowledge.

In spite of the above clear hadith, the deviant Naqshbandi claim that there is ‘secret knowledge’ with the Sheikh, for example on page 60-61 of the book ‘Haqiqat ul Haqqani’ in the 3rd paragraph it reads -

Vast amounts of hidden knowledge have been communicated to his mureeds by Mowlana Sheikh Nazim in this manner. Questions by these mureeds regarding day to day life, or questions relating to religion … and also many other subjects have been answered by Mowlana Sheikh Nazim. When this type of communication has been granted to a mureed, he no longer needs to resort to books to further his knowledge.

The Sufis Using the Hadith of Ruqyah as a Proof for Wiping the Graves – Shaykh Al-Albanee [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]

The Sufis Using the Hadith of Ruqyah as a Proof for Wiping the Graves …
Using a General Proof for Something Specific and Vice Versa

Sheikh Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen al-Albaanee رحمه الله
Fataawaa Jeddah 6
Translated by Ahmad Abu Turaab
Video Courtesy: adamibnzuber

Sheikh al-Albaanee رحمه الله mentions an important principle, and it is that we can not implement a general hadeeth in a general manner if it was acted upon in a specific way and was not acted upon in a general manner. And the sheikh brings forth the example of the hadeeth of praying in jamaa’ah and its benefits. While the hadeeth is general, it was acted upon in a specific way. So it is not permissible, for example, to pray the sunan before dhuhr in congregation. And if that is the case, then we can not act upon a specific hadeeth in a general way when it was acted upon in a specific way by the first generations of Islaam.

~ The Clear Distinction Between Sufism and The Zuhd of The Salaf – Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ahmad Shamlaan [Audio|Ar-En]

The Clear Distinction Between Sufism and The Zuhd of The Salaf by Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ahmad Shamlaan

Bismillaah wa -Alhamdulillaah wa Salaatu wa Salaam ‘alaa Rasulillaah ‘amma ba’d

Muwahhideen Publications facilitated a LIVE telelink lecture with Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ahmad Shamlaan (hafidhahullaah), from the mashaayikh and head of Dar ul Hadeeth, Radaa’, Yemen.

A superb refutation of the falsehood of the sufis!

The noble Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ahmad Shamlaan (hafidhahullaah) explained that Zuhud is to renounce worldly pleasures in order to gain nearness to Allaah. It is to leave off what Allaah has made haram and to do that which Allaah has made obligatory. This concept is of tremendous importance in Islaam and the Shaykhpresented this in the form of a comparison between the proper and upright Zuhud of the Salaf to the extreme and deviant practices of the sufis. The Salaf best understood and practiced this noble principle. They had reached the pinnacle of sincerity and devotion to Allaah and strict adherence to the sunnah of the Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), performing all acts of worship in precise accordance to the legislated texts. The Shaykh showed the clear distinction of this to the absurd innovations of the sufis who went to such extremes in their ‘ibaadah, out of their acclaimed piety, that many of their beliefs and practices fell into kufr.

Our Shaykh Ahmad Shamlaan (hafidhahullaah) continues in this lecture making distinct the falsehood of thesufis and the proper practice of our salaf us saalih in their implementation of zuhud.

~ Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al-Jaami describing the leaders of the Sufi paths – [Video|Ar-En]

Published on Nov 10, 2012 by SalafiCentreUK

Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al-Jaami rahimahullah:

“And due to that, I do not know of (something) more harmful upon the Islamic society in their creed than the Mashaayikh of the (soofee) paths; because the Mashaayikh of the (soofee) paths corrupt the creed of the society and they affirm attributes for the creation that cannot be affirmed except for Allaah; Knowledge that encompasses the knowledge of all things; hearing that encompasses all things that can be heard (or not heard by humans); ability, having an effect [on things-- with regards whether that can occur or not] and controlling the affairs. They (i.e. the Mashaayikh of soofiyyah) affirm these meanings (attached to these terms or words) without hesitation.

Everyone who has had contact with them perfectly knows this from them; rather according to them this is a trait obligatory upon a Darweesh* (i.e. a member of that soofee path that engages in dancing, turning round and round, waving their arms about etc), a Mureed* (i.e. a partisan disciple of a soofee path or soofee leader, who follows without questioning) and a Khaleefah* (i.e. the successor of a soofee path or previous soofee leader or the leader of a soofee path) that they have to fear the great Shaikh (i.e. the greatest religious guide); the one (with true) knowledge of Allaah; Al-Waasil ilal-laah (the one who has reached Allah); that is to say: the one cut off from Allaah, the one through whom a person gets close to Allaah—he is to be feared with this fear. And that is (i.e. this belief of the soofees) is to be cut off from Allaah.

This (belief of theirs) is another religion other than Islaam. They corrupt the religion of Islaam and they corrupt the hearts of the slaves (of Allaah). And for that reason be mindful; do not be deceived by (their) outward appearances, (their) prolonged glorification (of Allaah) at times… (Words unclear)…. Do not be deceived by these outward manifestations. These outward manifestations are a deceit. These people are from the most evil of people; they are from the most evil of those who ascribe themselves to Islaam; they are the most harmful to the society. I do not know of a similarity for these people; because I lived with them in my childhood. Take hold of these secrets; from the earliest (days) of my youth, I used to be in their nurturing; but Allaah saved me and I know about them that which others besides me do not know. Be mindful of these people, they are present.

And when we talk about the ashaa-irah in the subject matter of the Names and Attributes of Allaah, they are lesser in harm than the soofiyyah; because the soofiyyah corrupt the hearts, corrupt hearts diverted from Allaah. They never pay attention to Allaah; they have conviction to the Shaikh, complete conviction in this life and the next.”
