Bid`ah Highway to Hellfire
"Indeed, the most evil of matters (in the religion) are the newly invented ones, and every innovation (in the religion) is a bid`ah, and every bid`ah is misguidance, and every misguidance is in the Hellfire."

[Authinticated by Al-Albani]
"Every bidah ismisguidance and
every misguidance is infire"
Volume 3, Book 49, Number 861: (Sahih Bukhari)
Narrated Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "If somebody innovates something which is not in harmony with the principles of our religion, that thing is rejected."
That is exactly our concept on Bidah. We believe any Bidah which is not in harmony with the principles of religion only that is rejected but other is not.
Wahhabi/Salafi Fanatics quote: "The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error." [Sahih Muslim # 1885]
And hadith in Sunnan Nasai’i adds: … and every going astray is in the Fire.' [Sunnan Nasai’i Vol. 2, Book 19, Hadith 1579]
Wahhabi/Salafis and Fanatics use these hadiths tomisguide people that every innovation is evil.
If we take these hadiths on face value then there will be contradiction in Qur’an and Sunnah and that is impossible. 
This is why great scholars like Ibn Hajr al-Haythami(Rahimahullah) explained these hadiths as:
وفي الحديث "كل بدْعة ضلالة وكل ضلالة في النار" وهو محمول على المحرمة لا غي
Translation: That which is narrated in Hadith that “All innovations are evil and all evil are in hell fire.” This hadith will be applied for Bidat al Muhrima (i.e. category of haram innovations only) not others.[Al Haythami in Fatawa al Hadithiyyah, Volume No.1 Page No. 109, Published by Dar ul Fikr, Beirut, Lebanon]
This hadith is to be understood from another hadith which states:
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ "‏ مَنْ سَنَّ سُنَّةً حَسَنَةً فَعُمِلَ بِهَا بَعْدَهُ كَانَ لَهُ أَجْرُهَا وَمِثْلُ أُجُورِهِمْ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أُجُورِهِمْ شَيْئًا وَمَنْ سَنَّ سُنَّةً سَيِّئَةً فَعُمِلَ بِهَا بَعْدَهُ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ وِزْرُهُ وَمِثْلُ أَوْزَارِهِمْ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أَوْزَارِهِمْ شَيْئًا ‏
It was narrated that Abu Juhaifah said: "The Messenger of Allah said: 'Whoever introduces a good practice that is followed after him, will have a reward for that and the equivalent of their reward... [Sunnan Ibn Majah Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 207. Salafis declared this hadith as Sahih in Dar us Salam version. It is also part of a longer hadith in Sahih Muslim #2219 & 6455]
While explaining this hadith Imam an-Nawawi the best Sharih of Sahih Muslim said:
قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( من سن في الإسلام سنة حسنة فله أجرها ) إلى آخره ، فيه : الحث على الابتداء بالخيرات وسن السنن الحسنات ، والتحذير من اختراع الأباطيل والمستقبحات ، وسبب هذا الكلام في هذا الحديث أنه قال في أوله : ( فجاء رجل بصرة كادت كفه تعجز عنها ، فتتابع الناس ) وكان الفضل العظيم للبادي بهذا الخير ، والفاتح لباب هذا الإحسان . وفي هذا الحديث تخصيص قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم : كل محدثة بدعة وكل بدعة ضلالة ، وأن المراد به المحدثات الباطلة والبدع المذمومة ، وقد سبق بيان هذا في كتاب صلاة الجمعة ، وذكرنا هناك أن البدع خمسة أقسام : واجبة ومندوبة ومحرمة ومكروهة ومباحة .
Translation: The saying of Prophet – Peace be upon him that ('Whoever introduces a good practice will have a reward for that) till end of hadith. “IN THIS HADITH IT HAS BEEN STRESSED UPON TO INTRODUCE GOOD ACTIONS… In this hadith “TAKHSIS HAS BEEN MADE OVER THE HADITH WHICH STATES: EVERY INNOVATION IS BIDAH AND EVERY BIDAH IS MISGUIDANCE. (The latter) hadith refers (only) to Batil and blameworthy innovations. This has been mentioned before in regards to Salat ul Jummah where we mentioned “FIVE CATEGORIES OF BIDAH I.E. 1. WAJIB, 2. MANDUB, 3. HARAM, 4. MAKRUH, 5. AND MUBAH” [Sharh Sahih Muslim by Imam an-Nawawi under Hadith # 2219]
Their Muhsin Khan translation of Bidah hadith:
Volume 3, Book 49, Number 861: (Sahih Bukhari)
Narrated Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "If somebody innovates something "WHICH IS NOT IN HARMONY WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF OUR RELIGION" that thing is rejected."
This is exactly our stance that only bad innovations which contradict Shariah will be called Bidat al Dalalah whereas praiseworthy and good innovations will come under Bidat al Hasanah as they do not contradict principles of shariah.

Quote: Wahhabi/Salafi:
*The "Mother" for all subsequent
Bidaah's (Innovations)*
" Why Is Shaykh Muqbil Excused and Yahya Al-Hajuri Al-Haddadi Is Not?
The Answer:
One of their main lines of argument on the issue of the first adhaan of Uthmaan (radiyallahu anhu) is centered around the use of the position of Shaykh Muqbil (rahimahullaah)regarding this adhaan that it was a bid'ah. 
This erroneous view of the Shaykh is used in a number of ways a) to protect al-Hajuri, b) to claim that those attacking al-Hajuri are really intending Shaykh Muqbil (a false claim). Here are some points to explain why Shaykh Muqbil is excused and Yahya al-Haddadi is not: Here
" Yahya al-Haddadi Clipping the Statements of the Imaams of the Salaf To Justify His Revilement Upon Uthmaan bin Affaan(radiallaahu anhu)
Yahya al-Haddadi has numerous revilements upon theCompanions (radiallaahu anhum) - even the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) has not been spared from his vile and obnoxious tongue - and an instance of that is ascribing bid'ah to Uthmaan (radiallaahu anhu) and *declaring the action of Uthmaan (radiallaahu anhu) in adding a second aadhaan for Jumu'ah as being the "mother" for all subsequent innovations.* Here
"And the burden in the Hereafter will be much bigger,
“every bid’ah is in the Fire.”

“Bidah Here, 
Bidah There and Bidah Everywhere"


However, people like ^Yasir Qadhi state the opposite.
In fact, they go as far as to say that:
" Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah is bid’ah."
Wahhabi/Salafi say:
"It is indeed strange for someone to make such a statement – and we hope that he had already retracted this statement or will so in the near future – since it implies that he rejects a form of Tawheed al-’Uloohiyyah.
The definition of Tawheed al-’Uloohiyyah is that one recognizes that it is only Allah who is worthy of obedience and worship”

One of the Wahhabi scholar's made a 4thdivision of tawheed !!!!

The scholars who said 3 divisions in Tawheed is OK
but fourth is a Biddah?
Why can't we make more divisions in TAWHEED?
Why not make 4 , 5 and 6... divisions and go on naming them?

Which rule says that IF IBN TAYMIYAH does something it becomes a Rule for WAHABIS , but if some one else does it , it is a BIDDAH?

So the Wahhabi rule is 
Only Ibn Taymiyah can add anything to Wahhabism and his addition makes him "sheikhul Islam" but if another Wahhabi adds something he is called a
 Biddatee (Innovator)"
This issue indicates that the Wahhabis pseudo-Salafiyya are shallow in their manhaj and lack a definite and concrete Usul in aqeeda and other affairs:
Let us see how these people are divided on this issue of:
"Tawhid al-Hakimiyya"
The blind followers of Ibn Tayamiyah like al Albani , ibn Baz , Uthaymeen , Fawzan… etc, they called the fourthdivision as Biddah!!!

Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen on
Tawhid ul-Hakimiyyah
Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-'Uthaimeen was asked concerning this, and he replied that:
"Whoever claims that there is a fourth category of tawheed under the title 'Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah' is to be counted as an innovator (mubtadi'). So this is an innovated categorisation which emanates from an ignorant person....
[Taken from 'al-Muslimoon,' no. 639, 25th of Dhul-Hijjah 1417H
which corresponds to Friday the 2nd of May 1997]

Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan on 
Tawheed ul-Haakimiyyah

Questioner 1: 
There is someone who has made a fourth category for Tawheed and called it Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah
Shaikh Fawzaan: [interjecting]... This is misguidance..., this is misguidance. This is misguidance and an [unnecessary] addition, which the people of knowledge have not affirmed. Tawheed is but two or three categories... this is contradictory, one person says Tawheed is only one category and another says it is four categories. All of this is misguidance...
... he can't even make his mind up to whether there are 2 or 3 categories Subhan Allah...this is great stuff...oh but it goes further:

Questioner 2:
So this is an innovated saying, this saying [Tawheed ul-Haakimiyyah]?
Shaikh Fawzaan: Yes, there is no doubt in this, it is in opposition to the Ijmaa [of Ahl us-Sunnah]. None of the people of knowledge have ever spoken with it. It is in opposition to the Ijmaa." End

The Statement of Shaikh al-Ghunayman

One of those upon whose words the Qutubiyyah relied upon is 
Shaikh al-Ghunayman.

The Shaikh stated when asked about Tawhid ul-Haakimiyyah,

"It is not permissible to deny Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah, for it is from the types of Tawheed. But it falls under Tawheed al-‘Ibaadah with regards to the ruler himself as a person. With regards to it meaning Tawheed, then it falls under ar-Ruboobeeyyah, because the Ruler is Allaah. So it should be that the Rabb is the Muttasarrif (Controller of affairs), He is the One who has the Hukm, so it falls under Tawheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah with regards to ruling, ordering, prohibiting, and carrying out, whereas regards to application and action then the slave is responsible for following the Hukm of Allaah, so then it is from Tawheed Al-‘Ibaadah in this sense. And making it into a fourth category doesn’t make sense because it falls into the three categories. And the division without a reason is a cause of extra words which are not needed, and it is a simple matter anyway. If he makes it a separate category then he is being redundant, and there is no harm it."

Ibn Uthaymin... again

was asked concerning this, and he replied that:
"Whoever claims that there is a fourth category of tawheed under the title 'Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah' is to be counted as an innovator (mubtadi')
So this is an innovated categorisation which emanates from an ignorant person who does not understand anything of the affairs of 'aqeedah and the deen.

This is because 'al-Haakimiyyah' falls within Tawheedur-Ruboobiyyah from the aspect that Allaah decrees whatever He wills.
It also enters under Tawheedur-Ruboobiyyah in that the servant must worship Allaah according to what He has decreed. So it does not fall outside the three categories of tawheed, which are: Tawheedur-Ruboobiyyah, Tawheedul-Uloohiyyah and Tawheedul-Asmaa was-Sifaat."
Then, when asked, 'How are we to rebut them?'he replied:
"We rebut them by saying to them, 'What does 'al-Haakimiyyah' mean?' It does not mean except their saying that judgement/decree is for Allaah alone ' and that is Tawheedur-Ruboobiyyah. So Allaah, He is the Lord, the Creator, the Sovereign Owner, the One in control of the affairs. But as for what they intend by it and an explanation of the danger of this idea of theirs, then we do not know their intentions and desire, so therefore we cannot estimate the seriousness of this matter.'
[Taken from 'al-Muslimoon,' no. 639, 25th of Dhul-Hijjah 1417H]

Shaikh Mu-hammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee
was asked,

"Our Shaikh, may Allaah bless you, the scholars of the Salaf, may Allaah have mercy upon them, mention that Tawheed is of three types: 'ar-Ruboobiyyah,' 'al-Uloohiyyah' and 'al-Asmaa was-Sifaat,' so is it correct for us to say that there is a fourth Tawheed that is 'Tawheedul-Haakimiyyah' or 'Tawheed of Judgement?'
So he replied:
"'Al-Haakimiyyah' is a branch of the branches of Tawheedul-Uloohiyyah, and those who focus their attention upon this newly invented saying in the present age use it as a weapon not to teach the Muslims the Tawheed that all of the Prophets and Messengers came with, but rather as apolitical weapon. So if you wish I will establish for you what I have just said, even though this question has repeatedly been answered by me, many times - or if you wish we will continue upon our topic.
Pseudo-Salafiyya are divided on
"Tawhid al-Hakimiyya"
As per these scholars there can be no further division!!
The pseudo-Salafiyya do not recognise the concept of "Bid'a Hasana", and if they were too they would have to admit that the division of Tawhid into 2,3 or 4 areas, is at least a Bid'a Hasana to their Ulama like Ibn Taymiyya onwards...
Wahabi/Salafi are totally divided on the issue of Tawhid and its branches,
especially on the issue of al-Hakimiyya they are bitterly at odds with each other, to the extent they make Tabdi (calling someone an innovator) over the affirmation or denial of this concept.
Even If It is assumed that It is “Bidat al Hasanah” then it will still be an "Evil innovation" in their sight because wahabi/salafi do not believe in classification of Bidah into good or bad.

"Bidah Hasanah"
^Wahabi/Salafi say:

"...we do not believe!"

Wahhabi/salafi say:

“some of the ulama of past when saying "bidah hasana" they mean in general terms, meaning they weren't speaking about bidah in deen, if you check the examples they gave for bidah hasanah you will see that it wasn't in matters of deen/worship.
As for as-suyuti rahimahullah, it seems wallahu a'lam thathe believed there coudl be a good bidah in deen, andthat isnt' really much of a surprised since he was sufi or at least influenced by them in some matters."
Wahabi "Salafi /Ahlehadith" say:

"The concept of good innovations only exists in the realm of mutual conduct and wordly matters, as well as from a linguistic perspective.
With respect to religious affairs and affairs pertaining worship, there has never been such a notion or concept, as Allah has perfected His religion for us as He clearly and explicitly states in the Qur’an.
What is perfect cannot be made any more perfect; and what was not part of the religion back then, can never be part of the religion now, just as Imam ash-Shâtibî has quoted from Imam Mâlik."
By the way... the above^
"What is perfect cannot be made any more perfect..."

Ibn Tayimyah's 
Division of Tawhid ?
The Holy Prophet (sal allahu alaihi wa aalahi wa sallam) came to give us the teaching of Tawhid, he never divided Tawhid into parts.
This division is not mentioned by Allah subhanahu wa tala in the Holy Quran , nor was it mentioned by the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe-e-Wa-Sallam.

Wahhabis exclude
None of the companions found and understood thisdivision in Tawhid , none of Salaf divided Tawhid into parts. Clearly no one from the Salaf did it!!!
Narrated Usama bin Zaid:
Allah's Apostle sent us towards Al-Huruqa, and in the morning we attacked them and defeated them. I and an Ansari man followed a man from among them and when we took him over, he said,
"La ilaha illal-Lah." On hearing that, the Ansari man stopped, but I killed him by stabbing him with my spear. When we returned, the Prophet came to know about that and he said, "O Usama! Did you kill him after he had said "La ilaha ilal-Lah?" I said, "But he said so only to save himself." The Prophet kept on repeating that so often that I wished I had not embraced Islam before that day.
[ Volume 5, Book 59, Number 568]

Wahhabi claim to be on the way of the Salaf in all affairs!
 But they fail to name just one major Sahabi, Tabi'i or Taba Tabi'i who divided Tawhid into 2, 3 and 4?

Ibn Taymiyyah Divided Tawhid into “Types”only to acuuse Sunni Muslims of Shirk andattack Tawassul.

1. Tauhid Rubabiyya

2. Tauhid Uluhiyya

3. Tauhid Al Asma Was Siffat

That's right Bidah Tawhid
Wahhabi bigots have a th Tawhid Al Hakamiyya...
again wait for it, they also have a 5th, 6th and even a 7th... Bidah Tawhid?
