The Golden Child: Abu Usamah Ath-Thahabi

This is a cross-post from the now, sadly, defunct blog Salafi Burnout


The Grand Muff Diver

The next entry into our rogue gallery is the one mockingly called “Goldie” by the late Abu Uwais Ahmed Abdullah Ali (May Allah have mercy upon him) Abu Usamah Khalifah Ath-Thahabi. Abu Usamah is a fast talking, intelligent and very talented individual (especially for manipulating women) that never lived up to his potential because of his love for the opposite sex and the ensuing scandals that caused a lot of brothers to distrust and in some cases to even hate him. His impulsive nature also caused him to bounce around a lot (New Jersey, England, Florida, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Peoria, England again). However along the way, he would marry a lot, and there are at least two women that have written in and confirmed to have had fully sexual relationships with him that were not his wife. He used his fame within salafi circles and position as Imam to swoon women.

His time here in Philly should have been a great match as an Imam was needed over at Germantown Masjid at the time and Abu Usamah seemed to be the perfect man for the job when he came in 1999. The Salafi Dawah was flourishing, Germantown Masjid had recently been taken over by the Salafis and all that was needed was a public face. Abu Usamah was the man for the job. However, it turned out to be a disaster when a brother in the community found out that Abu Usamah was exchanging sexually explicit emails with his wife and calling her when he wasn’t home. That was the tip of the iceberg as more stories came. He was also accused of regularly receiving and giving oral sex in the Islamic library (the Imam’s office) from some of the women in the community. One witness in Philly who wrote me said that he regularly performed oral sex on her as well as also exchanged explicit emails and had phone sex. This has been corroborated by others here in Philly. The old administration at the Germantown Masjid knows all of this information, but largely kept it quiet. They silently fired him “under a cloud of accusations and suspicion” but failed to warn other communities of the evil way that this man used his position of power over vulnerable women. In just two years he was forced to leave or be completely humiliated. Abu Usamah can not openly show his face in Philly to this day. And further, if he were to come to the US, he would have to take a que from Khalid Yasin and do it quietly, then run back to the UK for cover before anyone can find him and make a big deal about it.

Abu Usamah is a true narcissist as he once openly bragged to a group of brothers that he managed to hook up a marriage while he was leading a group of Hajjis. For those that are unaware, it is not permissible to get married during Hajj. No problem. He didn’t actually get married during the Hajj. He simply saw one of the women and noticed that she was “eyeing” him, so he inquired if she was single and “handled his business” after the Hajj. This incident demonstrates just what kind of man we are dealing with here. In constant pursuit of women and extreme selfishness. Many brothers who hung out with him noticed that being “Imam” or “daee” seemed to simply be a 9-5 job to him (which he was very good at). Many of us noticed that he just didn’t seem to live by his knowledge. He only lived by it inside the masjid and giving the classes. One brother even calls him “the entertainer” because that is how he seems to see himself. He comes and gives the class or khutbah, gets a rise out of the crowd, leaves and gets a pay check. In spite of railing against going to the movies and listening to music in his lectures, khutbahs and classes, he was known to personally engage in both. He was also known for breaking promises and to quote a variety of classical Islamic figures and use scholarly facts to back up his actions (or use them to obfuscate and hide his evil).

Another trait is that he is very calloused. He once remarked that he needed to “downsize” his family so he got rid of a couple of wives. One of his wives was crying every day and it was bothering him, so he sent her back to New Jersey so that he did not have to look at her cry anymore. So much for the ruling of the woman remaining in the man’s home! He had no regard for his wife at all. He needed to “downsize” and that was that.

As “imam”, he was also responsible for advising troubled women and would use this position to get close to them going as far as they were willing to go. Sometimes he would string women along with the promise of marriage only to get what he was after and flee. One witness reported in an email:

Well, I know now that he works on different levels according to the women. Also, that its not just about sex with him, some people he thrives on the conversation, the way they make him feel,etc..sex also but it is included amongst other things. This is how I was so thrown off.

He came to see me, he fed me a fantasy, to say the least. Years later, I still remember his visit like yesterday. He even met my parents, talked to my friends. By the end of the trip, I started sensing something, funny. He started to say stuff like, If I do decide to marry you, when at first, it was wallahi! (and the only thing preventing it was he needed to get a fatawa on my situation) he kept saying I gotta talk to some Sheikh. I know now, that, that would not have been that hard. Among the confusion of was he intending to marrry me or not, that is one thing that verified it for me. He used that as the only reason for not being able to marry me when we first started talking, so he knew that he had no intention on doing so, because he can talk to scholars easily, but he knew I didnt know about that. He was acting funny, some way he just left, he called, and told my mom that he made it, and after that, I heard nothing from him. Excuse my french, but he came, he f***** me and left. I also remember how he took me to get the morning after pill, and he made sure I took both doses. That also let me know where he was going.

She also said:

He had sex with me in his office, but that was just the beginning of that nonsense. I also have to say that, I know I had my role in this situation. I just dread that anyone would go through this, like I did. I was on the brink of a nervous breakdown. I can tell you that I am not the type of women to be beat for a man like that.

Unfortunately, he seems to be keeping this up as a source in the UK reports that as recently as a few months ago, Abu Usamah had sex with a Moroccan woman while visiting Dubai much like other “joyriders” who are known to see prostitutes there as well as in Egypt. With him being in the UK now, the good news is that no one else here in the US will be hurt, however, what of those in the UK?

I ask again. Is this the kind of leadership you want???

    My wife claims to have once owned a second-hand mobile, previous owner a local Imam. She was not impressed with the downloaded video clip she found on the phone: a young lady hand-pleasuring a pony.

    {Messaging porn to others’ phones is a common pastime in the Arab world… next you see one young Arab man showing some video clip on his mobile to one of his mates, it’s most likely porn…}

    Salafi imam caught rug munching? What’s new!

    Posted June 14, 2011 at 4:49 PM | Permalink

    An old imam was visiting his fourth wife in hospital where she has been in a coma for several years. On this visit he decides to rub her left breast instead of just talking to her. On doing this she lets out a sigh. The imam runs out and tells the doctor who says this is a good sign and suggests he should try rubbing her right breast to see if there is any reaction.

    The imam goes in and rubs her right breast and this brings a moan. From this, the doctor suggests that the imam should go in and try oral sex, saying he will wait outside as it is a personal act and he doesn’t want the imam to be embarrassed. The imam goes in then comes out about five minutes later, white as a sheet and tells the doctor his wife is dead. The doctor asks what happened to which the imam replies: “She choked.”

    According to some he is doing similar things in UK too!!! They say he definately does not live by his knowledge. So what is the point of attaining this vastness of knowledge? its simply a way of means to fulfill his evil desires. Alluring women by so called ‘halal way.’ May Allah help the women in US,UK and wherever he is to go next.

    I seen the evidence in person, some admitted it, people like abu usama ran out of the country. There were numerous sisters who came forward and went to the masjid admin, the admin did nothing, they showed emails, texts even voice messages from these imams, yet they only blamed the women. if the leaders are corrupt the people will be corrupt, theres hundreds of accounts of these men commiting crimes, abul hasan malik admitted he spent the night in a dorm room with a woman he wasnt married to. self admittance is your evidence.

    I want to say this, I witnessed some of these accusations myself, I have seen emails from a certain imam, I have read a statement where the imam himself wrote about his encounter, I have also witnessed a salafi bro picking up a hooker here in philadelphia pa, this goes on everyday, with imams and the common muslim, sadly its normal to hear imams fornicating and yes they are all black, theres 2 non black salafi imams here and both of them never got accused of anything, the ulama never gets accused of this, but the abusive imams do. Its not racism, if a black man yells back power hes uplifting his people, if a white man yells white power hes racist. double standards, black men dont like when white men marry black women but black men marry white women all the time. all double standards, how sad are the hypocrites.

    (2) Seek serious medical help

    I’d also be interested in seeing the altleast master’s in computer engineering, and alladin’s lamp that would make such possible.

    Lying with you is it habitual or are you unaware you do it when flustered, abu faris?
    I’mg enuinely curious because you are a fucked case, recomending other seek help when so obviously labouring under a host of disorders and delusions. I’ve never emailed you a thing.
    I’ve posted insulting comments on the inane shit that dribbles out of your brain, that is a public service. In fact I feed back to you what you vomit at others, just I do it well.

    Now, if you can’t handle the big bad man being mean and nasty to you, maybe you shouldn’t play on the worldwideweb. If you are of such delicacy, perhaps your time would be better spent reflecting on what it is about yourself that attracts people who think you are a muppet with his fuzzy head so far up his own ass all his sunrises and sunsets are in shades of shit.

    Cameron

    I have the record of your (deleted) comments to my blog, earlier comments to an earlier blog and other information that you have chosen to post up in my name on various blogs in order to incite others to commit violence against me and my family.

    I also have the emails sent by you, posing as another person, in which you make a direct threat of violence against me and my family.

    I have shown these emails to others, including lawyers.

    I would strongly recommend you desist immediately harassing and threatening. Internet stalking, making threats of violence (including death threats) against me, my wife and small children, inciting others to commit criminal acts (including violence), are serious criminal offences in a number of jurisdictions. Again, I would strongly suggest you stop, desist and cease such activity immediately.

    If you continue in your campaign of incitement to violence, threats of violence and internet stalking I will have no choice but to hand over all information I have gathered, all comments made (which are stored not just on my servers, but also on independent servers) and other details I hold to the police, your service provider and other authorities.

    I am giving you once last chance to back off and disappear, Cameron, as I am more than a little convinced that you are actually not very well and that medical assistance would benefit you more than removal of your internet provision, serious fines and possible imprisonment.

    Yeah, I said have at it.

    abu faris you really don’t have the sightest bit of sense, threatening someone you believed to be suffering from mental illness. Very bad idea, it surprises me that natural selection didn’t take you out of the gene pool a long time ago. Empty threats scare me about as much as a fear of y2k, not at all and your lies about threats to your family, bitch at this point all you are doing is pissing me off.

    Where as before I was just playing with you because you’re an idiot with a grossly inflated ego and clueless about subjects you pontificate upon. Now you are going to have so many beards ringing your bell you would think you had posted a slutty picture of yourself on adultfriendfinder, match.com and eharmony. If I see your moniker on any site outside of your little blog….

    I will even offer clues as to why I know you are full of shit, one you have estabished a record of resorting to fabrication when cornered, you have clearly illustrated a pattern of faulty and suicidally incompetent use of foresight and judgement, it is amazing that in this day and age people leave open wireless connections all over the place. I have a few close to my local but have my favourite.

If truly he has fallen into this sin, will this method or medium make him repent? Are you doing this for the sake of Allah or just to ridicule his personality?

    UK Sisters, we really need you to come forward if you have been exploited by any the Salafi leaders, because we have a connection in the UK where InshaAllah we can make sure that your suffrage is heard. At protect Muslim sisters we are dedicated to bringing the awareness of the victimization that Muslim sisters are subject to. None of US are perfect but WE HAVE TO FORBID THE EVIL AND JOIN THE GOOD.

    We have no intentions of simply just making sure you are heard. We are also coming up with ideas and solutions that could possibly cut down on some of this evil that’s condoned by a small few of the Salafi Masjid administrations, but we first have to show that there is a need for these changes in order for change to occur.

    INSHA-ALLAH, sisters please come forward and let’s work towards preserving our Muslim sisters and lets’s protect our brother’s from their wicked influences.

    Whoever wrote this article is one screwed up, sick headed piece of trash, had nothing else to do in their spare time, so decided to right up sick accusations even of an Islamic scholar. SERIOUSLY, YOU ALL MUST BE THICK AND SICK IN THE HEAD, if you could believe something as ridiculous as all of this said about the Imam, who spoke nothing but the truth (with daleel) good things about women, their right to be protected and the HIJAB.

    SO PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE EVEN THINKING ABOUT SOMEONE IN SUCH A DEGRADING WAY SUBHANALLAH. DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY CLEAR EVIDENCE or ARE YOU JUST GOING TO FOLLOW WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE CLAIMING TO BE TRUE (especially when you don’t even know him by person). I don’t know him in person either, but listen to his lectures regularly and can see how knowledgeable he is. HOW CAN YOU GUYS BELIEVE THAT A PERSON SO KNOWLEDGABLE WOULD DO SUCH A THING. Oh Allah please guide us all.

    Assalaamu Alaykum Warahmatu Laahi Wabarakaatuhu…
    I HAV A SERIOUS MESSAGE FOR ALL OF THE PPL THAT EITHER
    a) WASTED ”GOD-KNOWS” HOWEVER MANY HOURS OF THEIR LIFE WRITING UP THIS SHOCKING… SHOCKING ARTICLE or
    b) WASTED ”GOD-KNOWS” HOWEVER MANY SECONDS/MINUTES/HOURS OF THEIR LIFE WRITING UP COMMENTS TO SUPPORT THIS SHOCKING…SHOCKING ARTICLE.
    But before any of that, there is one question that is really bugging me right now, that I’d like to address to the author of the article… (btw i don’t care if u dont answer/reply to anything I say below; but this question, I REALLY WUD LIKE A TRUE ANSWER)… … … … … … …
    R U (the author of the article) EVEN A MUSLIM N DU U TRULY FOLLOW THE RELIGION OF ISLAAM
    If NO, then I am totally wasting my precious by writing these paragraphs below, however if u answer is YES, then all of the below SERIOUSLY APPLIES TO U!!

    To the article author:
    First of all, U shud be aware that what u have done is accused a great figure of Islaam of adultery AND corruption. Lets put the ”corruption” accusation to one side for a bit. OK. I want to display to u a number of boundaries that u hav skipped thru (religious boundaries n logic/practicallity boundaries)
    1) Islamically (which I understand not to being an actual word but using it anyway since it fits the conversation very well), what u hav done is VERY WRONG, because if a muslim brother of yours really committed ZINNAA (adultery) then if u were a true muslim you wudnt go to post that information on any sort of public place for any1 to see (NEVER-MIND PUBLISHING THE INFORMATION ON A WEBSITE THAT IS VIEWED BY MILLIONS IN A DAY). YOU WUD HAVE GONE TO HIM N SPOKE TO HIM, PRIVATELY N EXPLAINED TO HIM THAT a) WHAT HE DONE IS A SIN THEREFORE b) HE NEEDS TO REPENT TO ALLAAH. Our Prophet of Allaah, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: ”None of you will truly believe until you LOVE FOR YOUR BROTHER WHAT YOU LOVE FOR. (Al-Bukhari)
    U WUDNT LIKE IT IF U COMMITED A SIN N BECAUSE OF YOUR HIGH STATUS IN SOCIETY, YOUR OWN BROTHER IN ISLAAM, WENT AROUND N SPREADED THE NEWS (LIKE ITS SOMETHING JOYFUL AND HAPPY). U wud want ur brother to come to u n giv u NASEEHAH (Advice) in the way of Allaah.
    So first of all, u need to understand that what u hav done on this scenario is spread a very bad word against a brother in the deen of ALAAH (which is bad as shown above).
    N wat u have to understand is, on the day of judgement Allah will judge us depending on our intention. Wat was ur intention wen u wer writng that article.?? Was it a guud intention (which I cannot logicalise; I cant think how this cud hav started off with a gud intention) or was it a bad intention (maybe u just generally hate the man). I don’t know. BUT ALLAAH KNOWS. N know that on the day of judgement, Allah will punish/reward according to a persons deeds (good/bad).

    2) Allah says in the Quraan: ‘’And those who launch a charge against chaste women and produce not four witnesses (to support their allegation) flog them with eighty stripes: and reject their evidence ever after: for such men are wicked transgressors’’ (surah nuur, verse 4)
    Alaah says if you are not able to produce 4 witnesses that saw the WHOLE/COMPLETE physical actions taking place (n btw,,, when I say physical actions; I mean SEXUAL INTERCOURSE n not holding hands or kissing), then ur accusation is classified as Islamically (which again I understand isn’t a word) VOID n therefore as Allah says that accuser must be flogged (that means wipped with something that’s like a belt) 80 TIMES. OOUCH. THAT REALLY DOES HURT.
    Now back to the author… u havnt stated in ur article anything about collecting 4 witnesses that saw any of the sexual accusations that u hold against Abu usamah AT-THAHABI (NOT GOLDIE, AS U CALL HIM)

    3) Alaah also says in the Quran: ‘’O ye who believe! let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (Indeed) doing wrong’’. (Surah 49 Hujaraat, Ayaat 11)
    PLZ READ This ayah and then focus on the bold section that I think apply mainly to this scenario.

    To the people that wasted their time supporting the article with comments:
    You as the commenter also hav commited a lot of islamical and practicality wrongs. First of all, in your comments you laugh n crack jokes at this accused. [For those of you that made jokes supporting the action of an imam doing anything like that, is totally wastefull for me to even address (which is contradictiong because I hav just addressed them; BUT U GET THE MESSAGE. THEY ARE NOT PPL THAT ARE TAKING THE ISSUE SERIOUSLY)]
    Everything that I hav told the author about ridiculing applies to you as well. And everything that I hav told the author about accusing someone of adultery without islamical proof also applies to you (u may think to urself ‘’hang-on, I havnt actually accused anyone of anything’’ But u hav supported the abuse and accusation of the someone without proof,,, that’s y u also fall in the same hole as the author.

    THAT WAS ALL THE ISLAMICAL SIDE TO MY ARGUMENT…NOW IT’S THE PRACTICALLTY ‘THINGIE’/PART I WAS TALKING ABOUT
    1) If the accused really did commit Zinnaa, then ur aim as a muslim wud be to try as much as u possibly can to try n get ur brother back on the right track;- the track of allah (Siraadul Mustaqiin). However by creating a blog page solely for the purpose of abusing that brother, u will not be attracting back on the way of Allah, Rather, u will be pushing him away from the Haqq n he will be feeling isolated (from the muslim Ummah) n hopeless (from the repentance of allah[which is haraam to do so as Allah is the Tawwaabu Rrahiim{the accepter of repentance, the most Merciful}]). N if somebody was to feel that way, because of yu, n then decide to leave the deen of ALLAH (May Allah forbid this from happens), Then this wud be a great problem for the person that pushed the person away.

    That is all I hav to say about this issue. Baarakalaahu Fiikum for taking the time to read this. May Allah guide all of us on the straight path. Wassallilaahuma wasallim wabaarik alaa nabi, walaa as-haabiihii wa sahbihii ajma-iin

    Atstagfirullah this article makes me sick to my stomach. I didn’t bother reading all this filth and hatred. As a woman I feel shy to read such detailed sexual imagery – any true Muslim would leave this unnecessary detail out. But the fact is that we Muslims should regard this as VILE SLANDER against a good, credible sheikh since there is no shred of proof.

    I really think the writer of this article is the shaitaan himself.

    The idea that “black” Imams are all corrupt are the words of a bigot who is not worthy of this forum’s space! I do not know Abu Usamah nor Dawud Adib! I do not support calling people Sheikhs because they studied in Madina either. I will say this though, it was the Arab that started turning Islam on it’s head not even 50 years after the death of the Rasul (AS). It was the Arab that started the Arab Slave trade under the Ummayad empire! It was the Arab that drove the early Muslims to Ethiopia! It is the Arab that thinks blowing themselves up is “Jihad”. Islam is in trouble because of a minority that is seen as the authority.

    I’m not remotely surprised by any of this. I knew Abu Usamah 5 years ago; he persuaded my (then) fiance to ‘marry’ a woman, and keep it secret from me. Abu Usamah knew I was pregnant and still decided to arrange the marriage. When I confronted him about it, he recommended that I should be a second wife. He was entirely unsympathetic and showed no remorse.

    He marries women in Islamic ceremonies, then divorces them when he’s had enough of sleeping with them. He always has several wives.

    He uses his power, status and influence as an imam to attract women, and encourages other men to follow his ‘lifestyle.’

    It amazes me to see these comments in his defense! I tried to complain about him at the time, yet no-one wanted to listen or take my complaints seriously.

    Miazio,

    Care to point out what was unislamic about his advice to the brother? His advice to yourself?
    Have some shame and do not reveal your sins…… Being pregnant by a fiancé? Seriously? I thought this article and it writing style, the hyperbole and lies was bad enough but ufffffff! Y’all trying to discredit the Sheikh, you actions and words speak louder than the state of your own nafs.
    The return is to Allaah, y’all sound like women scorned, hell the brothers have had lucky escapes with your likes.

A real Muslim is meant to “hide the sins of his brother” despise this being nonsense anyway!!! If it was real bring the proof or kick back!!! Just like when those Kuffar accused Aisha (ra) you have no proof!

    Umm And Allaah,

    ‘Have some shame and do not reveal your sins…… Being pregnant by a fiancé?’
    I am not muslim. I have no shame in saying that I was pregnant and not yet married.

    ‘Care to point out what was unislamic about his advice to the brother? His advice to yourself?’

    He told the ‘brother’ that he should deceive me and arrange to marry someone else. I found out about this arrangement myself. The other woman who became his ‘wife’ in a non-legal ceremony was also not told about me. The ‘brother’ was living with me and my family and lying to us all.

    His advice to me? I live in England where having more than one wife is illegal. Green Lane Masjid say that they do not perform marriage ceremonies for 2nd wives; this is clearly untrue.

    Abu Usamah was/is extremely promiscuous. I once overheard a phone conversation where he was talking about f***ing his new French wife. She didn’t last long; she was one of his temporary wives. It is he who should feel ashamed.

    Abdirahman Mohamed,

    Your post alarms me. Abu Usamah should not have his abuses of power and trust covered up; he is abusing his position as imam to have sex with women.

    You do not need 4 witnesses. You need to LISTEN to these women without judgement and condemnation. Abu Usamah should not be behaving in the way he does; he is in a position of power and influence and he is abusing it.

  51. Posted October 6, 2012 at 10:15 PM | Permalink

    To Miazoi,

    ”I was pregnant and not yet married.”
    IF YOU WERENT MARRIED, WHY R U MOANING THEN. YOU AND YOUR ‘FUTURE HUSBAND’ WERENT IN A CONTRACT OR ANYTHING (MARRIED). SO IF HE DECIDED TO ‘DUMP’ YOU AND MARRY SOME1 ELSE, I PERSONALLY SUGGEST YOU GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON TO FIND ANOTHER MAN.
    this explains why ur so angry @ abu usama.

    ”Your post alarms me. Abu Usamah should not have his abuses of power and trust covered up; he is abusing his position as imam to have sex with women”
    IF U CAN PROOVE THAT ABU USAMA IS DOING THIS, THEN……GO……AHEAD!
    We are all waiting for that,,, but in the meantime (WHILE U N ALL THE OTHER PPL THAT ACCUSE HIM HAV NOTHIN) Cut with the blasphemous rumours.

    ”You do not need 4 witnesses”
    WHERE DID YOU GET THAT FROM, ‘WIKIPEDIA’?
    OOH YEH YOUR NOT A MUSLIM. Well let me just quickly explain; Allah, who is the god that we, as muslims worship, says in surah(chapter) 24 (surah nuur) ayaah(verse) 13: ”Why did they not produce four witnesses? Since they produce not witnesses, they verily are liars in the sight of Allah. ‘ (24:13). As a muslim, we live by what allah says, and we judge by how allah tells us to. that is why we are muslim, becasue we submit our total will to Allaaah. so nxt time u r going to accuse this man or any other muslim of the things u accuse him of (although you dont actually have anything to accuse him of) make sure u no what ur saying!!!

    ‘You need to LISTEN to these women without judgement and condemnation’
    ”WITHOUT JUDGMENT OR CONDEMNATION”; THIS IS YOUR WORST COMMENT YET. WHU ARE THESE WOMEN, ANGELS??? WHY IS IT THAT THEY CANT BE WRONG??? WHY IS IT THAT THEY CANT BE LYING??? Seriously do you put any thought in anything you type on this blog???

    ”he is in a position of power and influence and he is abusing it”
    ABU USAAMAH AT-THAHABI HAS DEDICATED YEARS OF HIS LIFE TO SPREAD THE WORD OF ALLAH, TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF TRUTH, TO FIGHT AGAINST EVIL AND INNOVATION. FOR THAT HE IS A MAN WHU HOLDS GREAT RESPECT FROM ME. i find your comments very blasphemous and desperate.

    plz STOP SPREADING RUBBISH ABOUT OTHER PPL AND START TO SIT DOWN AND CONTEMPLATE ON YOUR OWN LIVES, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU PPZ.
    ON THE DAY OF RECKONING AND JUDGEMENT, IT WILL NOT ABU USAAMAH’S DEEDS AND LIFE THAT YOU WILL BE QUESTIONED/RECKONED /JUDGED ON, it will be YOUR’S!!! your deeds! your life. so seriously, i persoanlly suggest you all to get on with your lives.

    And for the sister (Miazoi), I PRAY TO ALLAH, THAT ALLAAH GUIDES YOU ONTO THE RIGHT PATH AND FORGIVES YOUR SINS.

    Wassaalaamu ‘alaa mani-ttaba’al hudaa!!!!

    I’m not blaspheming when I say that I don’t think Abu Usamah should be in a position of influence/authority. He is just a man.

    I find your desperate attempts TO SHOUT ALL THE TIME AND DEFEND THIS MAN WITHOUT ANY KNOWLEDGE EITHER WAY VERY STRANGE.

    ‘OOH YEH (sic) YOUR (sic) NOT A MUSLIM.’
    No, I’m not.

I bet this shaykh is more beloved to Allah 7000000000000000000000000000000000000 times more then you. So listen very carefully this shaykh is known as a very knowledgeable and humble person.

    The autor of this srticle is such a sick person in his head. May Allah punish him 4 levelling such a baseless accussation on such a great soul that has a positive influence on many of us. Suppose the accusations are true, the question is, is Abu Usamah not a human being? Or that are you (the author) a Maasum,? Not at all

    I have to ask, is this article necessary? Honestly, I ask you to truly question yourself. Will your writing bring you closer to your lord or will it sever your ties with the people of the religion? Will this article bring you any benefit in the akhirah? Will it lead you to the jannah? Or will it lead you to experiencing the heat of the fire for slandering your brother and failing in concealing his sins. Not only have you managed to open his sins up to your brothers and sisters in this religion but you’ve also opened it up so that the kuffar may also see. This is the importance of holding your tongue when it comes to the matters of your brothers and sisters as well as business that does not concern you. I make dua that Allah will forgive you as well as for the sisters who gave “proof” to you because they’ve failed in hiding their sins as well. They’ve shown their illnesses in their willingness to publicly admit to their fornication. May Allah forgive us all of our sins and lead us to the righteous path. May he strengthen us in providing a cover for both our sins and the sins of our brothers. Ameen.

    Ibn Baaz between reality and illusion by Zawahiri
    I listened to the fataawaa of Ibn Baaz, like many other millions of Muslims, which was broadcasted all over (the world). He was calling the Muslims to pray in Masjid al-Aqsaa and permitted trade with Israel.

    Then I heard the response of the prime minister of Israel, Is’haaq Raabeen, saluting and welcoming the “honourable” mufti. [1]

    Unlike many people, I wasn’t very surprised from what that man (Ibn Baaz) said, because I have a very firm opinion about him, despite the great elevation that many people have given him. In my simple understanding, it is impossible for a man to be an imaam, mufti, person of fatwaa, example of education, and simultaneously have one of the highest religious positions in the regime of Aal-Sa’oud (the Saudi government) – America’s greatest agent.

    So how does Aal-Sa’oud pay that man (Ibn Baaz) all these salaries, and give him all these positions whilst they are the strongest followers (allies) of America, except if the presence of that man in those positions was a major benefit for Aal-Sa’oud. Aal-Sa’oud are the ones who are ruling the Muslims by the edge of the sword (by dictatorship), without any mercy or compromise.

    And if it occurred to them (the Saudi regime) once, that this sheikh will ever oppose them, or be of any kind of threat to their authority, they would have taken so many measures to silence him through isolation or even by killing him. And the history of Aal-Sa’oud of killing their oppositions goes without say.

    All of the above is not the main purpose of this speech (article), but the purpose is as follows…

    Verily many people have taken Ibn Baaz and those with him as an example in the Deen and as a reference for their fataawaa. They refer to their (Ibn Baaz and his followers) fataawaa and publications in the vital issues of the Deen, i.e. in ‘aqeedah and tawheed, and in the most dangerous issues related to the Muslims – being the apostate rulers who are ruling the Muslim lands.

    And those followers, despite all what they choke about in regards to their independence (disassociation) from taqleed (blind following) and madhaahib (schools of thought), they are the biggest people of taqleed towards him (Ibn Baaz) and his people. And this da’wah has spread amongst thousands of Muslim youth until it has become the normality.

    Until we saw someone like Safar al-Hawaali coming out with the idea that democracy might be a necessity to rescue the country from chaos, referring to Algeria as an example, he is referring all of this (i.e. the idea of democracy) to Bin Baaz, in his tape no.4661 Tasjeelaat al-Hidaayah al-Islaamiyyah in Dammaam, lecture dated 23/06/1412. All of this is despite al-Hawaali’s knowledge in ‘Ilm ut-Tawheed and despite all his books about secularism. If this was the case with Safar al-Hawaali, so what about anybody else? (In other words, if someone “knowledgeable” as Sheikh Safar al-Hawaali could be misguided by Ibn Baaz, what about those who are less knowledgeable)?

    Thousands of youth have been living as prisoners to these dazzling names, Bin Baaz, ‘Uthaymeen and Abee Bakr al-Jazaa’iri, who they follow and will not even dare to oppose, even though their mistakes are so great, and their deviation is so outrageous.

    And I used to wonder how do those people imitate in their Deen a man (Ibn Baaz) who never sacrificed anything for the sake of Allah and was never tested? On the contrary, he doesn’t get his salary except by defending the interests of the tawaagheet (false gods or those who do not rule by Islam). So how do these people ask him about the solution for the tawaagheet and about the sanctity of their blood and to wipe out their authority? (In other words, how can people ask him how they should deal with the tawaagheet when he himself was a defender of taaghout)?

    It is about time for the Muslim youth to free themselves from these empty ringing names who have exaggerated their nifaaq (hypocrisy) with the tawaagheet until they have become a laughing-stock in front of friends and enemies. [2]

    And it is about time for these youth to gather around the ‘ulamaa al-’aamileen (sincere active scholars) who are suffering and being tested for the sake of their Deen, the ones who Allah (SWT) has described them as, “And we made from among them [Children of Israel], leaders, giving guidance under Our Command, when they were patient and used to believe with certainty in Our Aayaat [proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, divine rules etc.].” (EMQ as-Sajdah, 32:24)

    It is also about time for these youth to wake up from their unconsciousness which they are living in, and understand that the battle of Islam and kufr, haq and baatil, is a crucial battle and there is no escaping it. And whoever is not going to prepare himself for it and get ready, he is going to be the first victim of it.

    It would have been possible for us to stay silent about those people (Ibn Baaz and his cronies), if only they themselves accepted to keep their mouths shut, and just speak about what is not going to make the rulers angry – the personal ritual affairs of the Deen, even though that would have been impossible since all these tawaagheet are so evil and corrupted. But those ‘ulamaa have turned into the destroyers and demolishers of the ‘aqeedah for the youth, making excuses for the kufr (apostasy) of the taaghout, go against commanding good and forbidding evil, permit the settlement of the invading forces of the American crusaders in the Arabian peninsula, and bless the policies of normalising relationship with Israel and the Jewish upper hand on the Muslim land.

    Now this is what nobody with one atom’s weight of shame in his heart can accept, let alone to have one atom of imaan in his heart (in other words, if a person has an atom’s weight of shame in his heart he will never accept this, let alone to have an atom’s weight of imaan).

    And I know my words are going to be too much for many of the good people who are still living in the illusion, or for the people who agree with me but have no bravery or courage to come out with it, fearing that others might start accusing them of belittling the ‘ulamaa, or because they cannot go against what they have been repeating (regurgitating) for many years.

    However, the haq is ablaj (clear), and the baatil is shaken; indeed Ibn Baaz and his taa’ifah (entity, group, followers etc.) are the government scholars who are selling us (the believers) to our enemies in return for some salary and some position. Let whoever wants to be angry be angry, and whoever wants to be pleased, let them be pleased (with what I am saying).

    Indeed the camp of imaan can confront the camp of kufr; we have to get rid of the munaafiqeen and the fraudsters,

    “And thus do we explain the Aayaat [proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.] in detail, that the way of the mujrimoon [criminals, polytheists, sinners], may become manifest.” (EMQ al-An’aam, 6:55)

    JUST CALM DOWN AND TAKE A BREAK! YOU ARE PROBABLY A BIT ANGRY ABOUT THE SAUDI ARABIAN GOVERNANCE…ok (perfectly understandable)…AND YOU PROBABLY HATE WHAT SOME INDIVIDUALS HAVE DONE TO ISLAM. BUT LET ME REASSURE YOU, THE SHUYUUKH THAT YOU HAVE MENTIONED ABOVE ARE NOT WHAT YOU ARE IMAGINING THEM TO BE. THESE PEOPE ARE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BENEFITTED THE MUSLIMS IN KNOLEDGE AND HAVE STRIVED WITH THE DEEN OF ALLAH FOR A LONG TIME.

    Dear brother/sister (with a brother name), please do not talk badly about people that have died. them and there deeds are between them and ALLAH. NOT FOR YOU TO BACKBITE THEM IN THEIR ABSENCE.
