The statement that was issued by me, the intent behind it was to invite
everybody, all of the du’at and the scholars, to make constructive
criticism and not to criticise specific individuals amongst their brothers from
the du’at. Rather everyone should offer sincerity of purpose to Allaah and
His servants. And when he comes to know of an error of his brother, he should
advise him for the sake of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, by writing or
orally, without criticising him on cassettes or printed media and their likes.
So that the hearts may remain upright and continue to have love and loyalty and
that there may be co-operation upon righteousness and piety. However, the
statement was not intended for our brothers, the people of Madinah, amongst the
students of knowledge, teachers and du’at. And nor were those besides them
in Makkah, Riyadh or Jeddah intended. Rather the advice was general.
And our Brothers, the well known Scholars in Madeenah, we do not have a doubt
about them. They are possessors of a sound aqeedah and they are from Ahl
us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah, such as Shaikh Muhammad Amaan bin Alee, Shaikh Rabee'
bin Haadee, Shaikh Saalih bin Sa'd as-Suhaimee, Shaikh Faalih bin Naafi', Shaikh
Muhammad bin Haadee [al-Madkhalee] - all of them are known to us to have
Istiqaamah, knowledge and sound aqeedah. We ask increase in every good for them
from Allaah and success in what pleases Him. However the callers of falsehood
(du’aat ul-baatil) and the people who hunt (others) in murky waters, they
are the ones who cause confusion amongst the people and who speak in these
matters and they say: ‘The intent was this and that’, and this is
not good. It is necessary to take the words in their best possible light. And
the intent [behind the advice] was co-operation upon birr and taqwaa, and to
purify the hearts and to warn against backbiting which causes rancour and
enmity. We ask Allaah for guidance and success for all."[The Tape:

And this is one illustration of many of the mischief and machinations of the
political activists. So they were disgraced and humiliated, but even this did not stop them from their folly...
