The Beliefs of Sheikh-ul-Najd
The Beliefs of Sheikh-ul-Najd
The Atrocities committed by the Wahhabis against the Muslim Ummah!

"Devil's Horn"
Shaytan Came in the Form of the Najdi Sheikh
Hafiz Ibn Kathir writes:"When the kuffar of Makka had a meeting concerning the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace), an old man came claiming:
"I am a Najdi - whatever you want to know, I will be helpful."
This Najdi Sheikh then gave his view against the Prophet throughout the meeting"
[Ta'rikh Ibn Kathir, Volume 4]

The Beliefs of Sheikh-ul-Najd 
1) All Muslims for the last six hundred years wereKafirs.
2) He wrote his first book "Kitab-ul-Tawheed" in which he labelled all Ayats about Idol Worshippers, Munafeqeensand Mushreqeens on the Ahle Sunnah and stereotyped them as Kafir and Mushriks to get them killed. (This was foretold in a Tradition in Bukhari)
3) Like the Prophets he claimed that anybody who did notbelieve in him was Kafir and be executed.
4) Anybody who accepted his religion was told to renew his shahadah and Hajj, if he had already done Hajjbecause he was previously Mushrik and Kafir
He was made to confess that his parents, all Muslims and prominent Ulama in the last 600 years were Kafirs. Anyone who refused this declaration was declared as Mushrik and would be slain even though he was a Mutaqi and all his possessions were forfeited. While on the other hand, anyone who accepted his command would be declared as Momin even though he was a Fasiq or Fajir.
5) He used to call the Holy Prophet as Tarish(postman). (Allah forbid)
6) He used to claim that there were so many lies in Sulah Hudaybia.
7) A stick could kill a snake and was better than Prophet who was dead and was of no use to them (Allah forbid). One of his blind followers once remarked in his presence that his walking stick is better than Prophet because his stick can still be used for killing a snake or such reptiles while Prophet is not beneficial any more. He was just a messenger boy who is no more.see [Shaikh Ahmed Ibn Zaini al-Dehlaan Makki Shafei d. 1304 A.H. (1886CE), Khulaasatul Kalaam fi Bayaanil Omara wal belaadel haraam, pp. 229-233]
Note: Because of his beliefs 4, 5 and 6 above Ulama gave the Fatwa of Kufr on Sheikh-ul- Najd.
8) He disliked and felt troubled if anyone recited Darud Sharif.
9) He used to severely punish those who recited Darud Sharif on Friday evenings and from Minarets afterAdhan
He even got one blind Muezzin tortured and killed because of this.
He used to say that reciting Darud Sharif from theminarets of mosques is more sinful than the sound of singing with music from the house of a prostitute.
10) He burnt all the books of Darud Sharif and Dalael-ul-Khairrat and claimed that their reading was Bidah.
11) He got all books of Fiqah, Tafseer and Traditions burntand used to do interpretation of Quran according to his choice and advised his deputies to do the same.
12) He claimed that he was Hanbali but that was a lie, camouflage and disguise to cheat people. His brother Sheikh Suleman was a Hanbali scholar who wrote a book criticising and condemning the Sheikh-ul-Najd and his beliefs.
13) He used to stop Muslims from visiting the grave ofThe Holy Prophet and he used to torture and get the beard shaved of the person whom he came to know had visited.
14) He denied the Wasili (means) of The Holy Prophet(Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). 
*He used to quote the case of Hadhrat Umar (R), taking Hadhrat Abbas and other Companions (R) to an open field for Salat-Istasqa (the prayer for rain) through the Wasila of Hadhrat Abbas (R), being the uncle of the Holy Prophet (S), as a pretext that Wasila of The holy Prophet (S) was not called for because the Holy Prophet (S) had passed away(*see below)
But he became speechless when refereed to the Tradition narrated by Hadhrat Abdullah bin Abbas(Raddi Allahu Anhum), according to which the Jews used to pray through the Wasila of The Holy Prophet (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and their prayers were answered even before the holy Prophet (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was born (1). (also see here)
 This fact is also mentioned in The Holy Quran (2).
There is also a tradition that in a time of a severe draught when the Companions (Raddi Allahu Anhum) came to Hadhrat Aisha (Raddi Allahu Unha) asking her to pray for rain, she advised to make a hole in the roof of the tomb of the holy Prophet (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and beg Allah for rain which they did and got plenty of rain (6a).
Moreover, the Salat-Istasqa is only prayed in an open field and not in any mosque, neither in Masjad-e-Nabvi nor in Haram-e-Kaaba.
(15) He believed in the material sort of body of Allah,which occupied space (3).

Atrocities of the Sheikh-ul-Najd and Wahhabis against Muslim Ummah during their three periods of domination in the Arabian Peninsula: 
The Wahhabis demolished the tombs and graves of the Companions (Raddi Allahu Anhum), Tabayen (those who had the honour of meeting the Prophet's Companions) andAwliyas ( the holy saints) all around Arabia, wherever they could lay their hands on including Janat-ul-Baqi. He got toilets built on many graves of the Awliyas. They shed the blood of the Muslims, who loved the Holy Prophet(Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), from Taif to Karbala and from Mecca to Madina.
The first period (1745 to 1818). During this period:
1) The Sheikh-ul-Najd and his followers got the graves of the Companions (Raddi Allahu Anhum) grounded inJabilia.
2) The first tomb grounded by the Sheikh-ul-Najd himself was of Hadhrat Zaid bin Khatab(Raddi Allahu Unho),, the brother of Caliph Hadhrat Ummar (Raddi Allahu Unho).
The Alliance:
 The Sheikh-ul-Najd entered into an alliance with Ibn-e-Saud, according to which, the Sheikh-ul-Najd would be the Imam while Ibn-e-Saud would be the head of the new state and both would share the bounties of wealth, the women as concubines and children as slaves gathered from killings of the Ahle Sunnah. After that alliance,Wahhabis started attacking Ahle Sunnah towns vigorously.
3) The first attack, after this alliance was on Riyadh. The town was captured after many years of siege killing hundreds of Ahle Sunnah Muslims.
4) The second attack was on Alhasa, in which hundreds of Muslims were also killed.
5) In 1801, Wahhabis attacked Karbala and Baladal Hussain. 
Over 2000 Muslims were massacred filling the bazaars and streets with the blood and corpses of innocent Muslims. They demolished all tombs and graves nearJamia Zubair and around the city including tombs ofHadhrat Talha, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (Raddi Allahu Anhum). Wahhabis looted all diamonds and precious stones decorating the tombs and took them to Najd.
6) The Destruction of Taif and Massacre of Muslims
After taking over Taif , Wahhabis killed the Muslims, young, old , women and children and filled the streets and bazaars of Taif with blood and dead bodies of innocent Muslims. The Wahhabis took all their possessions, gold, silver and precious things and distributed amongst them and sent one fifth to Ibn-e-Saud.
7) Attack on Mecca Mukarama
In 1803, Saud attacked Mecca Mukarama. Saud took over Mecca Mukarama without fight but massacred Muslims in the Haram Sharif, even against the command of Allah according to which no blood be ever shed inside the Haram, the Sanctuary of peace.
He burnt all the four praying mats of four Ahle Sunnah Imams, demolished all places of homage, graves and tombs, urinated and defecated on many of them. He also destroyed the tombs on the birth place of The Holy Prophet, (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) Abu Bakar SiddiqueAli bin Abu Tallib and Khadija Kubra (Raddi Allahu Anhum). He even burnt the cloth covering the Kabaa.

8) Capture of Madina Munawara
Saud repeated the same massacre and bloodshed of Ahle-sunnah Muslims, destroyed all graves and tombs and Muslim heritage all around the Madina Munawara.
Saud tore the cloth covering the grave of  The Holy Prophet (Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), destroyed the Hujra Sharif and the ceiling of the Tomb of The Holy Prophet(Sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) to steal the precious stones and metals and took 60 camels loaded with treasures with him.
Some Wahhabis even climbed on the Tomb of The Holy Prophet to demolish it but they fell with their faces down and died. A big ball of fire and a serpent appeared and attacked the Wahhabis scaring them to take to their heels.
9) In 1806, Wahhabis seiged the town of Najaf-e-Ashrafbut could not take it. In retreat, they destroyed and made a havoc in the outskirts of Baghdad.
10) In 1810, Wahhabis advanced as far as Horan which is two days horse journey from Damascus killing innocent Muslims and looting many towns and villages. When huge waves of cries erupted in the Arabian Peninsula and the Muslim world against the Wahhabis barbaric atrocities,Ali Pasha and his sons, commanded by the Ottomans, crushed the Wahhabis regime in 1818.

Muhammad Hasni wrote that Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab Najdi said: “When I went to study in Basra, mushriks would ask me questions and I would leave them very surprised with my answers”. “Tareek Aal-e-Saood”
Shaykh Uthman Bin Basheer Shaykh Juhri takes all the information we will provide here from Tareekh-e-Najd, in the book called:  “Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab.”
Shaykh Juri states: “Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab Najdi called The Ahl-e-sunnah Muslims Kafirs & Mushriks apart from himself and his (blind) followers”. The proof for this is that Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab himself said that inBasra, Mushriks would come and ask me questions, these people were Muslims and thus Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab only considers himself and his followers to be Muslims.  [“Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab”]
Shaykh Attar wrote that Shaykh Najdi said: “I declare war on these people as the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] declared war on the Kuffar of Makkah, against those people with corrupt beliefs”. Corrupt beliefs refers to those people who seek intercession from Anbiyah, Awliyah, and they make their Dua through them (Waseela) and those people who travelled to the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace]’s grave with the intention to seek help other than Allah’s. [“Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab’ page.55”]
The people who leave their corrupt beliefs and join us then, their blood will be saved, and those people who do not do ‘Tasuba’ (Repent) or pay jiz’eiya get ready to do battle. Then Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab Attar says: “To spread the good, It is in Islam as to do Jihad, who can refuse this.”  [“Shaykh Ahmed Attar”]
Mas’ood Aalam Nadwi wrote that Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab Najdi has called only those Muslims kafir who make Du’a with the Waseela of Prophets and Awliya, and he made jihad against them. [“Mas’ood Aalam Nadwi”]
All these statements prove that Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab Najdi’s Jihad was not against kafirs but against those Muslims who held the Aq’aid of Ahl-e-Sunnah, like the Khawarij, he considered all other Muslims to bekafirs.
Khawarji’s are those people who consider all other Muslims to be non-believers apart from themselves. They are supposed to kill people who have trust in pious people, as they did with Khabab for saying that he loved Ali radi-allah-ho-unho. Also they would call any person who has committed a major sin non-believer. *Even for anything small they would call the Sahabas non-believer’s as they did with Uthman, Talha, and Zubair Radi allahu taala unhu ajmaeen.
The Khawrij’s would only take the literal meaning of the Holy Qur’an and that would be it they would take it no further. They would call the Sahee (true) Hadith fabricated, such as Hadith-e-Rajm ,(stoning the Adulator to death), they would label their opponents non-believers and consider it right to take their belongings and their wives as slave girls. When the Khawarij spoke they would try to refer to the Qur’an or the Hadith as much as possible.
It has been said by Abdullah bin Umar (RA) that Khawarij’s are so mischievous that they fit those Qur’anic verses that were revealed about the non-believers. [Bukhari chapter: Al-Murtadeen]
For further details please consult books by Ibn Hazam Sharastani, Abu-Mansoor Ma’tirdi, Abu-Zahra Misrei and Mazhabe Islamiyah
This was a strange thing as even Abdul Wahab’s blind followers could not digest it.
Shaykh Juhri wrote: ‘I think that Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab Najdi apart from himself and his followers has labelled all other Muslims as kafir; while not all Muslims have worshipped graves and especially the Ulama. At the time no Muslim’s worshiped grave’s but that was an excuse by Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab Najdi so that he could kill the Muslims.  [“Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahab, page: 36”]
Shaykh Juhri says: “I cannot find any reason why they should all have been labelled Kafirs”.  Shaykh Juhri was a strong follower of Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahab but even he was surprised at this action by [Muhammad Bin Abdal Wahab ]
"...The Wahabys declared, that all men were equal in the eyes of God ; that even the most virtuous could not intercede with him ; and that it was, consequently, sinful to invoke departed saints, and to honour their mortal remains more than those of any other persons.
Wherever the Wahabys carried their arms, they destroyed all the domes and ornamented tombs ; a circumstance which served to inflame the fanaticism of their disciples, and to form a marked distinction between them and their opponents, which it has always been the policy of every founder of a sect to establish, and which was the more necessary with the common mass of the Wahabys, who are not capable of judging accurately on the other points of dispute.
The destruction of cupolas and tombs of saints became the favourite taste of the Wahabys. 
In Hedjaz, Yemen, Mesopotamia, and Syria, this was always the first result of their victory ; and as many domes formed the roofs of mosques,^ they were charged with destroying these also.
At Mekka, not a single cupola was suffered to remain over the tomb of any renowned Arab : 
those even covering the birth-place of Mohammed, and of his grandsons, Hassan and Hosseyn, and of his uncle, Abou Taleb,and his wife, Khadydje, were all broken down. 
While in the act of destroying them, the Wahabys were heard to exclaim,
 “God have mercy upon those who destroyed, and none upon those who built them!”
The Turks, who heard of these ravages, naturally believed that they were committed through disrespect for the persons to whose honour they had been erected, and disbelief in their sanctity.
 " Even the large dome over the tomb of Mohammed, atMedinah, was destined to share a similar fate.
 Saoud had given orders that it should be demolished ; but its solid structure defied the rude efforts of his soldiers ; and after several of them had been killed by falling from the dome, the attempt was given up.
This the inhabitants of Medinah declared to have been done through the interposition of Heaven.”

Explains Wahhabism
Tarikh al-Madhahib al-Islamiyya
("History of the Islamic Schools")
(1898–1974 CE)
They did not restrain themselves to view worship (`ibada) in the same way that Islam had stipulated in the Qur'an and Sunna and as Ibn Taymiyya had mentioned, but they wished to include customs (`adat) also into the province of Islam so that Muslims would be bound by them. Thus they declared cigarette smoking haram and exaggerated this ruling to the point that their general public considered the smoker a mushrik [idolater]
As a result they resembled the Khawarij who used to declare apostate whoever committed a sin.
In the beginning of their sway they would also declare coffee and whatever resembled it as haram [categorically prohibited] to themselves but it seems that they became more lenient on this point as time went by.
The Wahhabis did not restrain themselves to proselytism only, but resorted to warmongering against whoever disagreed with them on the grounds that they were fighting innovation (bid`a), and innovations are an evil that must be fought, and it is obligatory to command good and forbid evil.1  [...]

M.bin Saud died in 1765
M.ibn Wahab died in 1792
Mu-hammed ibn Saud died 1765), also known as Ibn Saud, was the emir of Ad-Diriyyah and is considered the founder of the First Saudi State and the Saud dynasty, which are technically named for his father – Saud ibn Mu-hammed ibn Muqrin (died 1725)
Imam Abu Zahra's book Tarikh al-Madhahib al-Islamiyya 
The leader of Wahhabi thought in the field of war and battle was Muhammad ibn Sa`ud, the ancestor of the ruling Sa`udifamily in the Arabian lands. He was a brother-in-law to Shaykh Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Wahhab and embraced his madhhabdefending it fervently and calling unto it by force of arms. 
He announced that he was doing this so as to uphold the Sunna and eradicate bid`a. Perhaps, this religious mission that took a violent turn was carrying with itself a rebellion against Ottoman rule. [...]    
Until the governor of Egypt, Muhammad `Ali Basha al-Albani, faced them and pounced on the Wahhabis with his strong army, routing them in the course of several battles. At that time their military force was reduced and confined to the Arabian tribes. Riyadh and its vicinity was the center for this permanent da`wa that would turn violent whenever they found the strength and then lie still whenever they found violent opposition.
Whenever they were able to seize a town or city they would come to the tombs and turn them into ruins and destruction [...] and they would destroy whatever mosques were with the tombs also. [...]
Their brutality did not stop there but they also came to whatever graves were visible and destroyed them also. And when the ruler of the Hijaz regions caved in to them they destroyed all the graves of the Companions and razed them to the ground [...]
They would cling to small matters which they condemned although they had nothing to do with idolatry nor with whatever leads to idolatry, such as photography. We found this in their fatwas and epistles at the hands of their Ulama, although their rulers ignore this saying of theirs completely and cast it by the wayside.
They expanded the meaning of bid`a [innovation] to strange proportions, to the point that they actually claimed that draping the walls of the noble Rawda [near the Prophet's chamber in Madina] is an innovated matter. 
Hence they forbade the renewal of the drapes that were in it, until they fell in tatters and became unsightly, were it not for the light that pours out to all that are in the presence of the Prophet - upon him peace - or feels that in this place was the abode of Revelation on the Master of Messengers. In fact, we find among them, on top of this, those who consider that the Muslim's expression "our Master Muhammad" (sayyiduna Muhammad) is an impermissible bid`a / and they show true extremism about this and, for the sake of their mission, use foul and furious language until most people actually flee from them as fast as they can.
"VIII. In truth, the Wahhabis have actualized the opinions of Ibn Taymiyya and are extremely zealous followers and supporters of those views. They adopted the positions of Ibn Taymiyya that we explained in our discussion of those who call themselves "Salafiyya." 
However, they expanded the meaning of bid`a and construed as innovations things that have no relation to worship. [...] 
In fact, it has been noticed that the Ulama of the Wahhabis consider their own opinions correct and not possibly wrong, while they consider the opinions of others wrong and not possibly correct.
More than that, they consider what others than themselves do in the way of erecting tombs and circumambulating them, as near to idolatry.2 
In this respect they are near the Khawarij who used to declare those who dissented with them apostate and fight them as we already mentioned. This was a relatively harmless matter in the days when they were cloistered in the desert and not trespassing its boundaries; but when they mixed with others until the Hijaz country was in the hand of the Sa`ud family,the matter became of the utmost gravity. 
This is why the late King `Abd al-`Aziz of the Sa`ud family opposed them, and treated their opinions as confined to themselves and irrelevant to others."4

Al al-Shaykh

 [House of the Shaykh]
They name Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Wahhab "Shaykh al-Islam" - although he is by his own Hanbali Madhhab's account a minor figure - and name his descendants Al al-Shaykh [House of the Shaykh] while his brother Sulayman ibn `Abd al-Wahhab declares him an heretic in his fatwa printed under the title:
Fasl al-Khitab min Kitab Allah wa-Hadith al-Rasul (Sallallahu `alayhi wa-Sallam) wa-Kalam Uli al-Albab fi Madhhab Ibni `Abd al-Wahhab ("The Final Word from the Qur'an, the Hadith, and the Sayings of the Scholars Concerning the School of Ibn `Abd al-Wahhab"), also known as al-Sawa`iq al-Ilahiyya fi Madhhab al-Wahhabiyya ("The Divine ThunderboltsConcerning the Wahhabi School").
This book is the earliest refutation of the Wahhabi sect in print, consisting in over forty-five concise chapters spanning 120 pages that show beyond doubt the fundamental divergence of the Wahhabi school, not only from the Consensus and Usul of Ahl al-Sunna wal-Jama`a and the fiqh of the Hanbali madhhab, but also from their putative Imams, Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn al-Qayyim on most or all the issues reviewed.
The last point shows the fundamental dishonesty of Salafism toward the very Imams they claim as their true link to the Salaf.

To this day, the Khawarij include al-amr bil-ma`ruf wal-nahi `an al-munkar in their books of fiqh.

(*) The Arabic of the hadith of Abbas bin Abdul Mutlib (Radhi'Allah Anho) is this:
كان إذا قحطوا استسقى ‏ ‏بالعباس بن عبد المطلب ‏ ‏فقال اللهم ‏ ‏إنا كنانتوسلإليك بنبينا]فتسقينا وإنانتوسلإليك بعم نبينا فاسقنا قال فيسقون
And correct translation is this:
O Allah! We would use our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him)as ameans (Waseela) to You and You then sent us rain; now we use our Prophet's uncle as a means (Waseela ) to You.
Hazrat Umar's asking through Hazrat Abbas does not prove that Waseela of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is prohibited.
اللهم إنه لم ينزل بلاء إلا بذنب , ولم يكشف إلا بتوبة , وقد توجه القوم بي إليك لمكاني من نبيك
O Allah, calamity (and trouble) comes as a result of sin and only penitence lifts this calamity, and the people, because of my relation with Your Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), have offered me to You as a means of seeking Your help, and these hands of ours, besmeared in sins, are before You and our foreheads are bowed down with penitence. So give us rain

Why Al Abbas (RA) was asked to do Dua?
 Imam Ibn Hajar Asqalani (Rah):
إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يرى للعباس ما يرى الولد للوالد , فاقتدوا أيها الناس برسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في عمه العباس واتخذوه وسيلة إلى الله
Rasul Ullah(salallaho alaihi wasalam) used to take Al-Abbas(RA)like a son takes his father. O People You should also follow the Prophet (s) incase of Al-Abbas(RA) and make him an Intercessor to Allah.
[Fath al Bari 2:497]
Ibn Hajar `Asqalani writes more about this Tawasul of Ibn e Abbas (ra)
 "The episode involving `Abbâs makes it clear that to seek intercession from the virtuous, the pious and members of the Prophet's family is a desirable act.In addition, this event proves the high status of `Abbâs as well as reveals `Umar's respect for him and the acknowledgement of his status."

Imam Suyuti (rah) 
"In the year 17 `Umar enlarged the Prophetic mosque. That year there was a drought in the Hijaz. It was named the Year of Cinders (`am al-ramada). `Umar prayed for rain for the people by means of al-`Abbas. Ibn Sa`d narrated from [the Sahabi] Niyar al-Aslami that when`Umar came came out to pray for rain, he came out wearing the cloaks (burd) of the Messenger of Allah, upon him blessings and peace.
Al-Suyuti mentions the context of this event in his Tarikh al-Khulafa' (Beirut, 1992 Ahmad Fares ed. p. 140)]
Intercession through this cloak , Even Hadrat Umar (RA) was wearing Prophet's (salehalawaalihi wasalam) cloak at the time, , Now what is importance of the cloak?
"...Here is the cloak of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and she brought out to me that cloak made of Persian cloth with a hem of brocade, and its sleeves bordered with brocade and said: This wall Allah's Messenger's cloak with 'A'isha until she died, and when she died. I got possession of it. The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) used to wear that, and we washed it for the sick and sought cure thereby. Sahih Muslim Book 024, Number 5149

In the year 1156/1743, a Wahhabi movement did not yet exist. Muhammad b. 'Abd al-Wahhab was still trying to attract followers in the small town of al-'Uyayna. His weak position was challenged by Sulayman b. Muhammad al-Hamidi of the Banu Khalid, the chief of al-Ahsa' and Qatif. The latter threatened the ruler of al-'Uyayna, 'Uthman b. Hamad b. Ma'mar, that he would not pay him the land tax (kharzdj) due for his landed properties in al-Ahsa' if he did not kill the Shaykh. [See Ibn Bishr, 'Unwdn al-Mardd, 20.]

Tandatawi starts his refutation with an outline of five points brought up by the shaykh,(Najdi) which he will discuss in the body of the text:

1- People, especially scholars and the pious, are not living accord-ing to the rules of the Sharia. They are therefore outside the com-munity of Islam.
2- People are not allowed to ask the Prophet, his family, or his Companions for intercession.
3- People should not visit the tombs of the Companions buried in al-Yamama, and the local chiefs should take the land tax ('ushuir) from the inhabitants.
4- People do not need to imitate previous 'ulama', such as the founders of the four legal schools. Each person should refer to the Quran and the Sunna.
 5- Various matters that could not be accepted by the human mind and that contradict the Shari'a.
Al-Shaykh 'Abd al-Wahhab b. Ahmad Barakat al-Shafi'i al-Azhari al-Tandatawi's
 Kitab Rad' al-Dalala wa Qam' al-Dahala [the book of the prevention of error and the suppression of ignorance] is one of the earliest surviving refutations of Ibn 'Abd al-Wahhab's da'wa.
Tandatawi finished writing his epistle on Saturday the 6th of Muharram 1156/1743.
It was copied by al- Qabbani, ten months later, on the 23rd of Dhu al-Qa'da 1156/1743
The paper also mentions that the manuscript used contains another book:
Kitab Naqd Qawaid al-Dalal wa Rafd Aqaid al-Dullal (ff. 41a- 63a) is a response to a letter sent by Ibn Abd al-Wahhab Najdi  to the “ulama” in Basra “where he claims that it is based on four rules mentioned by God in the Quran”.

Mu-hammed ibn Abd-al-Wahhab 

at-Tamimi an-Najdi 

regarded himself as a prophet! 

Not by saying:

 " I'm a prophet"

but by saying the following:
وأنا أخبركم عن نفسي والله الذي لا إله إلا هو لقد طلبت العلمواعتقد من عرفني أن لي معرفة وأنا ذلك الوقت لا أعرف معنى لاإله إلا الله، ولا أعرف دين الإسلام قبل هذا الخير الذي من الله به.وكذلك مشايخي ما منهم رجل عرف ذلك، فمن زعم من علماءالعارض أنه عرف معنى لا إله إلا الله أو عرف معنى الإسلام قبلهذا الوقت أو زعم عن مشايخه أن أحداً عرف ذلك فقد كذبوافترى ولبس على الناس ومدح نفسه بما ليس فيه
"And I inform you about myself - I swear by Allah whom there is none worthy to worship except Him - I have sought knowledge and those who knew me believed that I had knowledge while I did not know the meaning of La Ilaha Illa Allah at that time and did not know the religion of Islam before this grace that Allah favoured.
As well as my shaikhs (teachers) no one among them knew that. And if someone from the scholars of al-'Arid (the lands of Najd and surrounding areas) claims that he knew the meaning of La Ilaha Illa Allah or knew the meaning of Islam before this time, or claims on behalf of his teachers that someone from them knew that, then he has lied and said falsehood and deceived people and praised himself with something he does not possess."

So where did his sudden "understanding" come from?
WahiNo by Allah, because there is no prophet after the best of all creation - 'alayhi salatu wa salam.
So the only option that is left is that Ibn 'Abd al-Wahhab was indeed a false prophet!
And the best refutation of the Najdis are their own works!
Let's see what Mu-hammed bin 'Abd al-Wahhab himself said in one of his letters:
وأنا أخبركم عن نفسي والله الذي لا إله إلا هو لقد طلبت العلم واعتقد من عرفني أن ليمعرفة وأنا ذلك الوقت لا أعرف معنى لا إله إلا الله، ولا أعرف دين الإسلام قبل هذاالخير الذي من الله بهوكذلك مشايخي ما منهم رجل عرف ذلك، فمن زعم من علماءالعارض أنه عرف معنى لا إله إلا الله أو عرف معنى الإسلام قبل هذا الوقت أو زعم عنمشايخه أن أحداً عرف ذلك فقد كذب وافترى ولبس على الناس ومدح نفسه بما ليسفيه

A brother ("Salah ad-Din") from IA forums had translated the qoute (and the translation is correct):
"And I inform you about myself - I swear by Allah whom there is none worthy to worship except Him - I have sought knowledge and those who knew me believed that I had knowledge while I did not know the meaning of La Ilaha Illa Allah at that time and did not know the religion of Islam before this grace that Allah favored. As well as my shaikhs (teachers) no one among them knew that. And if someone from the scholars of al-'Arid (the lands of Najd and surrounding areas) claims that he knew the meaning of La Ilaha Illa Allah or knew the meaning of Islam before this time, or claims on behalf of his teachers that someone from them knew that, then he has lied and said falsehood and deceived people and praised himself with something he does not possess."
If he himself didn't know the meaning of Tawhid, nor his teachers, nor their teachers, how and where exactly did his sudden "understanding" come from?!
The answer should be obvious: It was his, own Evil "understanding"!
