The Reality Of “Nouman Ali Khan” [Video Clips Attached]

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيم

وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَىٰ تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers. 51:55


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 Judgement.

The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said : ‘’Indeed some eloquent speech has the influence of magic” Sahih Bukhari

The above hadith clearly indicates that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) confirmed that there will be individuals and groups who will call to misguidance and deviation from the straight path and their speech will be like magic and obliviously he did not describe them to his ummah except to warn his ummah from their fitna (trials) and an advice to stay away from such speakers.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (d.653 H – rahim’ullaah) said (concerning ahlul bidah) : ..The damage that they do to the religious commitment of many people is worse than the damage done by those Mushrikeen and people of the Book who wage war on us.. Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 35/159-160

In our era, among the many misguided callers, is Nouman Ali Khan who is followed and admired by many over YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp etc. Most of his admirers are the common masses who are ignorant of the essentials of aqidah (creed) and manhaj (methodology) held by Salaf Us Saliheen. For them anyone who quotes the Quran and Hadith is a reliable scholar. They easily get impressed especially if the speaker is good at cracking jokes and storytelling.

I was recently informed that some individuals ascribing themselves to knowledge and dawah ilallaah, are promoting this individual on the argument that …’they have not seen anything which opposes the Book and the Sunnah from the speech and actions of Nouman Ali khan and that he is excellent when it comes to the explanation of the Quran and heart softening topics..”

To have a better understanding lets reflect on the below few questions and answers :

Q. Is quoting Quran and Hadith enough as an evidence to judge the reliability and authenticity of a speaker?

A. Of course NOT! Because misguided sects and their callers do quote Quran and Hadith but explain in a way other than the way of Salaf Us Saliheen.

Q, Is the methodology of the Salaf NOT necessary to have correct understanding of Quran and Hadith?

A. Yes. Methodology of Salaf is necessary to have the correct understanding of Quran and Hadith as Allaah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala said : {And the first to embrace Islaam of the Muhajirun and the Ansar and also those who followed them exactly. Allaah is well pleased with them, as they are well pleased with Him. He has prepared for them gardens under which rivers flow (paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success} [Tawbah : 100]

Q. Is it NOT from the advice of the Salaf to investigate the condition (aqidah and manhaj) of the person from whom knowledge is taken?

A. Yes. The Salaf have repeatedly advised that knowledge is not to be taken except from the person of Sunnah. Imaam Muhammad Ibn Sereen (rahimullaah d. 110 AH) had said : “This Knowledge is a Matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your deen from.” (Introduction of Sahih Muslim)

Q, Is it NOT true that, Nouman Ali Khan trivializes important questions related to the aqidah (creed) and emaan (faith) concerning the attributes of Allaah Ta’ala?

A. Yes. See the attached clip http://goo.gl/x6vGfz (No.1) in which Nouman try to give false impression, that the question “where is Allaah?” is not at all important question and argues that such a question was not asked by Allaah or by the Sahaba and that such issues need to be “KILLED” !! (Astaghfir’Allaah)

Can this be the speech of a person of Sunnah? Was this question not asked by the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to the slave girl in the hadith of Sahih Muslim? Have not the Salaf taken a serious stand against those who rejected Allaah to be above his Arsh? Refer the important website www.abovethethrone.com on this vital subject of Islamic faith.

Q, Are you aware, that Nouman Ali Khan does NOT consider the cerebration of the Prophet’s birthday as “Bidah (innovation)”?

A. See the attached clip http://goo.gl/hL0bRb (No.2) wherein he says that he doesn’t have any opinion on the celebration of prophet’s birthday because it a “NON-ISSUE”!!! How could a person of Sunnah not denounce and free himself from actions which have been labeled bidah by the scholars of Islam? Did the Messenger or the Sahaba celebrate this? Refer the important website www.bidah.com for understating Bidah and its evil results.

Q. Are you aware that Nouman give lectures alongside the most dangerous Sufis and misguided callers to shirk & Bidah of our time (like Habib Ali Al-Jifri, Hamza Yusuf, Amar Khalid etc)?

A. See the attached clip http://goo.gl/4mlLvM (No.3) which is the clear proof for his deviation. if still brothers see him to be upright in his teachings then something is seriously wrong in their understanding! Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said : ‘Whoever innovates something in this matter of ours that is not a part of it will have it rejected.’ [Bukhari]

Imaam Ibraaheem an-Nakha’ee (d. 96 H – rahim’ullaah) said : “Do not sit with the people of ahwaa‘[desire], for verily their gatherings cause the light of emaan (faith) to go from the hearts, and strip the beauty from the faces, and cause hatred to be inherited in the hearts of the believers.” Ibn Battah’s Al-Ibaanah no. 375

Imaam Abu Qilaabah (d.140H – rahim’ullaah) said : “Do not sit with the people of ahwaa‘, and do not argue with them, for verily I do not feel safe that they will immerse you in their misguidance or confuse you in that which you already know. Ibn Battah’s Al-Ibaanah no. 369

Finally, I conclude by saying that the general topics delivered by Nouman Ali Khan should not deceive you brothers because the call of a Salafi Daee is not just upon generalities but he emphasizes more on the issues of aqidah and manhaj based on knowledge with clarity along with ordering the good and forbidding evil beliefs and practices without mixing truth with falsehood.

In shaa Allaah, the above information should be sufficient for the sincere seeker of truth so that he is able to distinguish between what is claimed about this individual and what is, in fact, the reality. May Allaah rectify his affairs and guide him and us to that which He Subhanahu wa Ta’ala is pleased with. Aameen!

Important Note : Indeed taking drugs is a major sin and destroys the individual and adversely affects the communities as well but holding false aqidah, shirk and bidah are grater and more severe.

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan [hafithahullaah] The innovators will have a worse punishment, since innovations are worse than sins. Innovations are more beloved to the Devil than sins because (it is likely that) the sinner may repent – Imaam Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (d.161Hrahim’ullaah), said : “Innovation is more beloved to Iblees (the Devil) than sins. This is because sins are repented from whereas innovations are not repented from.” (Majmoo’-ul-Fataawaa (11/472)) The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said : “Verily Allaah has prevented repentance from every person of innovation.” (Silsilat-ul-Ahaadeeth as-Saheehah (1620)) but as for the innovator, then very rarely does he repent because he thinks that he is upon the truth. This is contrary to the sinner for he knows that he is disobeying Allaah and that he is committing a sinful deed. As for the innovator, he considers himself to be obeying Allaah and to be upon obedience. This is why innovation – and Allaah’s refuge is sought – is worse than sin. And this is why the Salaf warned the people from sitting and gathering with the innovatorshttp://goo.gl/P1xgE7
