The Second Matter: The Family of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam)
One of the many accusations levelled at the Shaykh is: that he does not love the family of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) and he does not fulfil their rights.
The answer: what they claim about him is contradictory to the truth, rather the Shaykh (may Allaah have mercy upon him) appreciated and recognised their right to be loved and honoured; he upheld this right - rather he himself criticised those people who deny these rights. The Shaykh (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said,
Allaah has given the family of the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) rights upon the people. It is not allowed for any Muslim to neglect their rights whilst thinking this is from Tawheed, rather this in itself is a form of exaggeration. The only reason why we disapprove [of the people] is that they honour [the family of the Prophet] by attributing to them the right to be worshipped, or honouring those who claim this belief. 
Whoever contemplates the life of the Shaykh realises the truth in what has been mentioned. It is sufficient to know that the Shaykh named six of his seven children by the names of the members of the honourable Ahl al-Bait may Allaah be pleased with them all. They are: Ali, Abdullah, Hussain, Hassan, Ibraheem and Faatimah. This is a clear indication of the love, respect and veneration that the Shaykh had for the Ahl Bayt.
The Third Matter: The miracles of the Awliyaa (the righteous people)
Some people spread that Shaykh Muhammad bin AbdilWahhaab denies the miracles of the Awliyaa.
This lie is disproved by the fact that the Shaykh himself clearly affirmed his belief in their miracles and this is contradictory to what is spread regarding him. From this is his saying regarding his belief,
I affirm the miracles of the Awliyaa. 
How can the Shaykh be accused of denying their miracles, when he himself described the people who deny their miracles as being from the people of innovation and misguidance. He said,
Nobody denies the miracles of the Awliyaa except the people of innovation and misguidance.
