The True Da’wah of Shaykh Muhammad bin AbdulWahhaab

Before we begin, it would be good to quote a brief statement from Shaykh Muhammad bin AbdilWahhaab (may Allaah have mercy upon him) detailing the reality of what he called towards whilst remaining distant from the many false allegations that his opposers have placed as a barrier between the people and the message [of the Shaykh].

The Shaykh says,
“I say: all praise is for Allaah, all blessings belong to Him and by Him we seek strength: Indeed my Lord has guided me to the straight path; an upright religion, upon the path of Ibraheem; this path which directs one towards Tawheed and saves one from Shirk [1]; indeed Ibraheem was not from amongst the Mushrikeen.

I do not – and all praise is for Allaah – call to the way of the Soofees, Jurists, philosopher nor any particular scholar from amongst the scholars of the religion that I hold in high regard.

Rather I call to Allaah alone who has no partners. I call to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) which he admonished both the first and last of this nation to follow. I hope I do not ever reject the truth when it comes to me, rather I bear witness by Allaah, His angels and all of His creation that even if a single statement of truth was to come to us from you then we would accept it without any reservation, and I will totally reject [2] all the other conflicting opinions from the statements of my scholars. Indeed the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) does not speak except with the truth.” [3]

“I – and all praise is for Allaah – only follow in obedience, and I am not one who innovates.” [4]

“The true reality of the affair is that I say: Only Allaah alone is to be supplicated to, He has no partners. This is as Allaah (the Most High) said in His Book:

{…and the mosques are for Allaah (alone), so do not invoke anyone besides Allaah.} [72:18]

He said regarding the Prophet:

{Say: “It is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to the Right Path.”} [72:21]

This is the speech of Allaah and it is the speech which the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned to us and advised us with…this is what is between me and you. If anything other than this has been mentioned then it is a lie and slander.” [5]

تصحيح مفاهيم خاطئة في قضية مهمة – الجزء الثاني

المرجع: رسالة باسم العنوان، طبعها دار القاسم

حقيقة دعوة الشيخ محمد بن عبد الوهاب يحسن في بداية المطاف نقل كلمات موجزة للشيخ محمد ابن عبد الوهاب – رحمه الله – في بيان حقيقة ما يدعو إليه، بعيداً عن سحب الدعايات الكثيفة التي وضعها المخالفون حائلاً بين كثير من الناس وبين تلك الدعوة،

فيقول: أقول ولله الحمد والمنة وبه القوة: إنني هداني ربي إلى صراط مستقيم، ديناً قيماً ملة إبراهيم حنيفاً وما كان من المشركين، ولست، ولله الحمد أدعو إلى مذهب صوفي، أو فقيه أو متكلم، أو إمام من الأئمة الذين أعظمهم…

(بل أدعو إلى الله وحده لا شريك له، وأدعو إلى سنة رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وسلم) التي أوصى بها أول أمته وآخرهم، وأرجو ألا أرد الحق إذا أتاني، بل أشهد الله وملائكته وجميع خلقه إن أتانا منكم كلمة من الحق لأقبلنها على الرأس والعين، ولأضربن الجدار بكل ما خالفها من أقوال أئمتي، حاشا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وسلم) فإنه لا يقول إلا الحق ) [الدرر السنية:1/38،37]

(وأنا ولله الحمد متبع ولست بمبتدع) [مؤلفات الشيخ محمد بن عبد الوهاب:5/36]

وصورة الأمر الصحيح أني أقول: ما يُدعى إلا الله وحده لا شريك له، كما قال تعالى في كتابه:

{ فَلَا تَدْعُوا مَعَ اللَّهِ أَحَداً } [الجن:18]

وقال في حق النبي :

{ قُلْ إِنِّي لَا أَمْلِكُ لَكُمْ ضَرّاً وَلَا رَشَداً } [الجن:21]

( فهذا كلام الله والذي ذكره لنا رسول الله ووصانا به،… وهذا الذي بيني وبينكم، فإن ذُكر شيء غير هذا فهو كذب وبهتان ) [الدرر السنية:1/91،90]
