DO NOT TAKE OR ACCEPT ANYTHING FROM UNKNOWN NARRATORS

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَن تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done. 49:6

All praise is for Allaah, Lord of all the Worlds, who ordered us to follow His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and to call to His Way, and may Allaah send praises and blessings of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and upon his family, his Companions, and those who truly follow them until the Day of Judgment.

DO NOT TAKE OR ACCEPT ANYTHING FROM UNKNOWN NARRATORS

Imaam Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr says in An-Nukhbah (pg 135) : “The narration of the anonymous (mubham) is not accepted if he is not named; because the condition of the acceptance of a report is the trustworthiness of the narrator, and whoever’s’ name is left anonymous his identity is not known, so how could this be trustworthiness?!”

Imaam As-Suyutee mentioned in Tadreeb Ar-Raawee (1/365) : “If he says a trustworthy person narrated to me, or like this, it is not sufficient for Ta’deel (attestation of trustworthiness) until he identifies him, because even if he is trustworthy with him perhaps if he named him he would be from those that others had mentioned with dispraise, rather his avoiding identifying him is something that places suspicion in the heart.”

Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee [hafizahullaah] stated, [regarding thosewho hidden their identities and use nicknames / Pen Names or kunyah while convey/ posting/drafting or forwarding emails and news especially through internet and slander the Scholars and students of knowledge who are known for Salafiyyaah] : “By Allah no one hides his [real] name except a person of evil. Astaghfirullah! Astaghfirullah! Why are you hiding your [real] name?! If you have the truth with you then announce your name, if you have falsehood with you then fear Allaah! Don’t speak! There is no reason to hide your [real] name, no reason whatsoever, this is something unknown with the Salaf…”

 

Shaykh ‘Ubayd ibn ‘Abdillaah Al-Jaabiree [hafizahullaah] pointed out around 12 benefits of posting [drafting or forwarding emails] with one’s real name :

1. One will take his time, contemplate, and think deeply before posting.

2. We will know the level of the writer’s knowledge and manhaj [methodology].

3. There will be no hastiness or unnecessary rush in spreading things before confirming them and referring them to the people of knowledge.

4. Writing under one’s real name will bring about a sense of responsibility and accountability for what is being written.

5. It will reduce excessive writing and spreading (of things devoid of benefit)

6. It will restrict the writing and the offering of advice to the people of knowledge and their students, and not just every A, B, C will post.

7. It will put forth the people of knowledge and make clear their true position and their true right and authority with regards to guidance, education, and criticism.

8. It will allow the Salafi manhaj to be seen in its beautiful form and complete shape, by way of knowing the narrators and their situations and personalities.

9. We will be able to apply the Sharee’ah ruling on the opposing ones, those who stubbornly resist (the correct path), and the liars. We will be able to confirm and verify reports if we know the individuals, but this ability will vanish or dwindle so long as we do not know them, or they are anonymous.

10. There will be an increase in beneficial posts with knowledge, clarifying the manhaj, and weak posts or those devoid of benefit will decrease.

11. We will nobly remove ourselves from the ways of the biased partisans and people of secret movements and organizations, and we will oppose their stealth and hiding behind nicknames or kunyahs when their attributes and poisons become known.

12. We will spread clarity and mutual truthfulness, two attributes that are from the foremost attributes of the Salafi manhaj…

O Allaah! Show us the truth as truth so that we may follow it, and show us falsehood as falsehood, so that we may abstain from it. Ameen.

وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا

And whosoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follow other than the believers way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in the hell – what an evil destination (4 : 115)
