The Repentance of Shaykh Muhammad Khalil Harras – Shaykh Muḥammad Aman al-Jami [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]

The Repentance of Shaykh Muḥammad Khalīl Harrās

Al-Shaykh Muḥammad Khalīl Harrās (رحمه الله) was born in Egypt in the governorate of al-Gharbiyyah in 1915; he graduated from al-Azhar University in Cairo sometime around 1940, receiving his doctoral degree in al-Tawḥīd wa al-Mantiq. He taught first at al-Azhar in the college of Usul al-Dīn. Later, he took an appointment to teach in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia—may Allāh (تبارك وتعالى) continue to bless and protect it—at Imām Muḥammad ibn Saʿūd University in Riyāḍ. He was known for harshness against the people of innovation and Sufiyyah, who attempted to take his life a number of times. From his many works, besides his book Ibn Taymiyyah, al-Salafī, is an explanation of Shaykh al-Islām’s treatise al-ʿAqīdah al-Wāsiṭiyyah. He died in Egypt in 1975.

Benefits from the story:

First: This story shows the extreme importance of studying the books of creed and methodology authored by the noble scholars of the Salafī Manhaj. For here was Shaykh Muḥammad Khalīl Harrās (رحمه الله), who had studied the religion from elementary school all the way to receiving a degree from the college of Usūl al-Dīn; however, it was within a three month period studying the correct creed in the works of Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah that helped remove the veil from his eyes. This story is a clear example that the one who devalues the books of creed is either ignorant of their true reality or is an adversary to what they contain, and the sweeter of the two is bitter.

Second: This story is a beautiful example of Allah’s (تبارك وتعالى) statement:

“And you do not will except that Allāh wills. Indeed, Allāh is ever Knowing and Wise.” [al-Insān 76:30]

Do we not see that initially al-Shaykh Muḥammad al-Harrās set out to gather whatever he could from the works of Ibn Taymiyyah, with the explicit intent of refuting this great Imām, but Allāh (تبارك وتعالى) intended otherwise, and instead of writing against Shaykh al-Islām, Muḥammad Harrās (رحمه الله) ended up writing in his defense?

Third: That once a person hears the truth, they should accept it and immediately reject what they previously held from error. Moreover, they should work to correct and refute those errors as Shaykh Muḥammad Khalīl Harrās did with his doctoral dissertation, Ibn Taymiyyah, al-Salafī.

Fourth: Holding a university degree in no way guarantees that a person possesses sound knowledge. This can be seen in the statement of Muḥammad Amān al-Jāmī (رحمه الله): “After this period, he said it became apparent to him that he had not understood al-Islām except after studying these works. [After] those many years of study, beginning with elementary school, then middle school and afterward high school and university, until reaching the point of writing his doctoral dissertation, it became clear to him that he had not understood al-Islām correctly before studying these books.”

Fifth: An encouragement to gather, disseminate, translate and spread the works of the Salafī scholars with the hope that those who have been affected by the people of deviance will learn the correct creed of al-Islām and turn in penitence to Allāh, as He (تبارك وتعالى) blessed Muḥammad Khalīl Harrās to do. May Allāh (تبارك وتعالى) keep us firm upon the creed of the Salaf, the people of Ḥadīth.

And he (peace be upon him) said: “Allâh, the Great, has given a slave of His the opportunity to make a choice between whatever he desires of Allâh’s provisions in this world, and what He keeps for him in the world, but he has opted for the latter.”

Allâh says: ‘Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allâh, and Allâh will give reward to those who are grateful.’ “ [3:144]

As soon as he had finished his Siwak, brushing, he raised his hand or finger up, looked upwards to the ceiling and moved his lips. So ‘Aishah listened to him. She heard him say: “With those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace with the Prophets and the Truthful ones (As-Siddeeqeen), the martyrs and the good doers. O Allâh, forgive me and have mercy upon me and join me to the Companionship on high.”

Ibn Al-Musaiyab said that ‘Umar had said: “By Allâh as soon as I heard Abû Bakr say it, I fell down to the ground. I felt as if my legs had been unable to carry me so I collapsed when I heard him say it. Only then did I realize that Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam had really died.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî, 2/640,641]
