Closing Remarks

So this is a small treatise containing some of the praises of the scholars for Dr. Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee Al-Madkhalee, may Allaah preserve him and guard him and make Paradise his and our final abode. These statements are only a small portion of the many praises that the scholars - those living and those who have passed away - have given to this noble scholar (Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee).

So the testimony of the people of knowledge is sufficient for us as testimony. And Allaah has called on their testimony in His Book concerning the greatest matter that requires one's testimony and that is Tawheed, as Allaah says:


"Allaah bears witness that No deity has the right to be worshipped, and so do the angels and those who have been given knowledge. (He is always) maintaining His creation with justice. There is no deity worthy of worship except Him, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." [Surah Aali-'Imraan: 18]

And dear brother, do not be like the one about whom Allaah says:


"And when (news of) a matter comes to them concerning (matters of) security or fear, they propagate it..."

But rather implement the saying of Allaah:


"But if they had only returned it back to the Messenger and those in authority amongst them, those amongst them who are able to derive a correct conclusion from it would have understood it (and made it known to them)." [Surah An-Nisaa: 83]

And beware O brother of being from those about whom Allaah says:


"And those who harm the believing men and believing women undeservedly, they bear (on themselves) the crime of slander and plain sin." [Surah Al-Ahzaab: 58]

And remember the saying of the Prophet, (صلى الله علیه وسلم):

"Whoever says something about a believer that is not true about him will be locked away in the boiling puss of the Hellfire, until he turns back from what he said." [1]

In these times, the false rumors and claims (against Shaykh Rabee’) have become widespread, but:


"Indeed Allaah will defend those who believe. Verily Allaah does not love every treacherous, ungrateful person." [Surah Al-Hajj: 38]

So O servants of Allaah, do not listen to what these prejudiced and spiteful people say in their belittling and defaming of the Ahl-us-Sunnah. Rather act on the saying of Allaah:


"O you who believe, if an evildoer comes to you with some news, then verify it, lest some people be afflicted by you due to ignorance and then you will feel remorse for what you did later." [Surah Al-Hujuraat: 6]

And take heed of the saying of the Prophet:

"It is enough of a lie for a person that he narrate everything he hears."

This is our conclusion and may Allaah send His peace and blessings on our sayyid, Muhammad, his family and Companions.
