Website calling almost everyone a heretic

It was purely by chance that I came across this website which has an Indian address. In the right hand column of each page, under the title “Guard your faith”, there is a list of movements considered kafir. Click on the movement’s name and you can read the full denunciation.

Ahmadiyya is, of course, top of the list.

Under Shi’ites we read: Shiaism (The Rafidah) and Islam are indeed different religions.

Under Jamaat-e-Islami:  “if you see the Aqeedah and Manhaj of their founding leaders, who are looked upon as mujaddid and great scholars you will be shocked”

Also under the above, Maudoodi is described as:  “A man who reviled many of the Prophets of Allaah and the Companions of Allaah’s Messenger”.

Under Barelwis: “the belief and practices of this sect are founded upon superstition, folklore and many innovatory practices. It is a sad fact that the masses of ignorant Muslims do not know the real meaning of ‘Ibaadah (worship); they address their worship (unknowingly) to other than Allah, thereby committing a kind of shirk (associating partners with Allah), which would drive a person right out of Islam.”

Tablighi Jamaat: “this group has exceeded all bounds in innovations and aspects of shirk, Muhammad Illiyaas, the heretical Deobandee who founded Jamaa’at ut-Tableegh in the 1920s, may Allaah give him what he deserves.”

Under Sufism they mention: “the kufr of Ibn ‘Arabi,”

Under Naqshbandiyya: “The present-day Naqshabandis are determined in their war against Islaam and the Muslims and seek to pull in unsuspecting and ignorant Muslims by their “populist” and cleverly devised approach”.

Under Deobandis, it says (encouragingly) at the top: “The Deobandis are one of the groups of Muslims”.

However, at the bottom of the page we read:

“after reading the writings of the revered scholars and Founder of Deoband one Realizes that the difference between the Barelwis and the Deobandis is Miniscule and they both Share the Same Sufistic Beliefs …”

One Response to “Website calling almost everyone a heretic”

    From Abdul Momin:

    This has the stamp of Ahle Hadees all over it. If one studies the characteristics of "the saved sect" we find the following quote attributed to Shiekh Abdul Qadir Jilani:

    Shaikh ‘ Abd-ul-Qaadir Al-Jeelaanee Rahimahullaah said: "As for the saved sect, then they are the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah. And there is no name for Ahl-us-Sunnah except for one and that is Ashaab-ul-hadeeth (those who stick to the hadeeth)."

    But one of the signs of the saved sect reads:

    The Saved Sect are the fewest among people.

    And  another:

    2. The Saved Sect are the ones who a majority of the people hold as enemies.

    By no stretch of the imagination can the Wahabbis be called "the fewest" among people.

    If there is worldwide condemnation of this sect in the western world today, it is only because of  a widespread perception that they (Wahabbis) encourage suicide bombings and spreading of Islam by the sword. Before September 11, 2001, no one in the western world paid any particular attention to them.

    Amongst Muslims, the bigoted followers of every sect have hated every other sect and held them to be enemies of Islam, including the Wahabbis who label every one else a heretic as proved on their website. So it is hard to say which majority of people they are talking about. After labelling all other Muslims heretic what can they expect anyway, except to be labelled as enemies of Islam themselves?

    If anyone can get hold of the two books: Deobandi Mazhab (by Barelvis) and Raza Khani Mazhab (by Deobandis) written against each other, I am certain that for most people it will not be possible to read more than the first dozen pages of these two voluminous books. Just the hate that spits out is enough to make one run away from religion.

    Interestingly the book Raza Khani Mazhab under one sub-heading: Raza Khani Kulimay, contains the names of at least 5 Aulia about who it is claimed that they inserted their own names in the Kulima.
