The Advice of Shaykh Rabee to Shaykh Faalih Concerning Jarh of the Narrators and Innovators: (this link is now dead but look at what was written):

Shaykh Rabee Ibn Hadee al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah ta’aala) stated in some advice to Shaykh Faalih al-Harbee Concerning Jarh of the Narrators and Innovators:


All praise is due to Allaah, and may the salaat and salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah, upon his family, his companions and whoever followed his guidance.

To the respected Shaykh, Faalih bin Naafi al-Harbee, may Allaah grant him success and straighten his step.

As-Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh, to proceed;

Verily I have come across some speech of yours relating to Al-Jarh (disparagement) which caught my attention when:


Some questions were posed to you on Friday 27/2/1423H about some people and you responded by stating that they are not from amongst the Salafis.

You were (further) asked is it a condition to clarify the reasons for al-Jarh (disparagement). You answered by saying, “No, this is not a condition. This is in relation to the reasons for al-Jarh. Clarifying the reasons of Jarh (disparagement) and Ta’deel (praise) occurs in the knowledge of narrations. And it is not (a condition when speaking) about the speech of the opposers in their methodologies and in their paths.”

I say (Shaykh Rabee):

1) You were asked about specific individuals who are widely known amongst people as [being upon] Salafiyyah and calling to it and in the eyes of the people there were scholars from amongst them. You expelled them from the fold of Salafiyyah and this expulsion is a severe Jarh (disparagement) which requires proof. If you do not produce any proof and clarify the reasons for this Jarh (disparagement) the people will believe that you have oppressed and transgressed against them and spoken ill about their religion without any just cause. So you would be accused by the people and you would be in need of exonerating your religion and your honour.

If you do not do so, the people will attack you and neither you nor anyone else would be pleased with this attack. Then as a result fitnah would arise, differing would occur between the Salafis and there will be an increase in mutual revilements. Nothing would stop this except that you mention adequate reasons for this expulsion. And even you would request these reasons if anyone disparaged you or expelled you from Salafiyyah….”
