The passing away of the Scholars


There are plenty of remaining scholars and all praise is due to Allaah. The Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه و سلم – passed away and his noble companions remained after him. Ahmad ibn Hanbal passed away and his companions remained after him. Ibn Taymiyah passed away and his companions remained after him. Ibn ‘Abdul Wahaab passed away and his companions remained after him. The aforementioned scholars passed away and Inshaa-Allaah their students and brothers will remain [after them].

The truth will never be lost. When ‘Umar ibn al Khataab was stabbed, he advised:

“Indeed Allaah will not allow His religion to be lost!”

It was said to him: ‘Appoint a Caliph!’

He responded:

“Indeed Allaah will not allow his religion to be lost!”

So Allaah will never allow His religion to be lost. It is upon you to roll up your sleeves and be keen on upholding the banner of the Sunnah and the truth.

“There will continue to be a group who is victorious upon the truth, unharmed by those who degrade or oppose them, until the hour is established.”

By Allaah, knowledge has not died, nor have the scholars, all praise is due to Allaah; The Committee of Major Scholars [remains], there is goodness and blessing in them and to Allaah belongs all praise, our brothers in ash Sham, and our brothers in Yemen. The world is full of senior students of knowledge who will fill this void and all praise is due to Allaah, so the people of falsehood should not rejoice.

I came across an article entitled: ‘To Jaheem [the hell fire] O Ibn ‘Uthaymeen’; It is most likely that such people are hypocrites who claim to be Muslims, Ibn ‘Uthaymeen to the Hell fire?!! The article then affirms that he is going to the Hell fire – ma shaa Allaah. Those who insult the companions of the Muhammad- صلى الله عليه و سلم -, the messengers, trifle with the Quraan and are leaders in falsehood are martyrs according to them and Ibn ‘Uthaymeen is the the hell fire?!!

He and those behind him, they are the ones in Jaheem, and whoever says: ‘The people are destroyed!’ then he is the most destroyed one amongst them.’ He is the most destroyed amongst them whether the meaning of the Hadeeth is; ‘he is the most destroyed amongst them’ or ‘he is the one who destroyed them,’ because he gains sin by this.

These people are blind, Allaah has blinded them, we seek refuge in Allaah from blindness.
