Who is Muhammad Ibn Abd Al Wahhab? Why some label Sunnis as Wahhabis? Why some fight Sunnah using this term?

Who is Muhammad Ibn Abd Al Wahhab? Why some label Sunnis as Wahhabis? Why some fight Sunnah using this term?

Wahhabis !!!!??? Who are they? Why some fight them??.⇓⇓⇓

Muslims just blindly mimic what they see and hear without even making the slightest effort to find out for themselves what the truth actually is.

There is no such thing as a sect or group of Muslims who call themselves ‘Wahhabis’. Who are they? What are their beliefs? Their legislations? There are none. It’s just an offensive term used as an insul

Only a lame mockery about one of the greatest scholars of Islam; Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab (rahimaullah).

This mockery is based upon the misconception that Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab had come with a new religion or a new form of Islam which opposed the accepted norms of the religion

Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a scholar of Islam who was born in the Arabian Peninsula about 200 years ago, at a time when the religious practices of the people therein contained; polytheism, superstitions and sanctification of the saints and graves, all of which are in clear opposition to the Islamic texts.

As he was reviving the message of the Prophets, he faced many obstacles and hardships and was severely opposed for bringing about this call.

His creed is the same as all other scholars

Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) said: “This knowledge will be carried by the trustworthy ones of every generation; they will expel from it the alterations made by those going beyond bounds, the false claims of the liars and the false interpretations of the ignorant.”

(Authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Mishkaat-no. 248).

Shaykh al-Islam Muhammd ibn Abdul-Wahhab (rahimaullah) was but a reviver of the religion who aided the deen of Allaah and purified Islam from unauthentic elements.

And do you know something else?

I personally find it extremely idiotic of the people who coined the term: “Wahhabi” because ‘Al-Wahhab’ is one of the lofty Names of Allaah. ‘Al-Wahhab’ means ‘The Bestower’ and ‘Abdul-Wahhab’ means ‘Slave of The Bestower’.

And to use this Name in a derogatory term against a person and a people who only establish Tawheed (oneness of Allaah)? It’s like cutting off your nose to spite your own face. Because you’re mocking a people with the Names of Allaah. How foolish is that?


Muhammad ibn Abd El Wahhab is the renewer of religion in Saudi Arabia and all the Arab peninsula

When he came

محمد بن عبد الوهّاب بن سليمان التميمي (1115 – 1206هـ) (1703م – 1791م)

Mohamed Ibn Abd El Wahhab ibn Sulaiman Ettamimi

(1703 – 1791)

Born in Aiyina in the middle of Najd near Riyad currently

His main dawah concert was to avoid and eradicate  shirk and myths in Arabia

Call people to avoid innovations in Islam

And follow the Sunnah of our beloved prophet instead

The most outstanding method of his wake up call is calling people to Tawheed


Muhammad Ibn Abd AL Wahhah.

Was threatened to be Killed

Expelled from uyaynah to Aditiyya

So Muhamuad Ibn Saud (ruler of Adiriyya) welcomed him

A woman committed Zina and asked the sheikh for stoning as purification

Ibn Uthaymeen said this shows how the sheikh bred Iman in people’s hearts

There were skirmishes between tribes but he managed to unite them all on Sunnah

Jihad stage

Khalid in Al Ahsae his enemy fought him but was defeated

A shia man of Najran Hassan Al Makrami fought him too

But all his enemies vanquished

Othman’s empire started to hate on him

They sent sharifs of Mekkah

They tortured 60 of his followers on purpose

Therefore, Muhammad Ibn Abd Al Wahhab send Hsain to explain his daawah

He Lived 92 years

Died 1791 (GE)

→→→↔His depts paid by others after he demised …♦he could have taken from the storehouse of Muslims full of Jihad’s booty but no he was a man of asceticism

He forgave all his enemies and said to some:

“I would supplicate for you in my Sujud”

♥He was A reformers, reviver and preachers. He was a zealous preacher who appeared in the Arabian peninsula in the twelfth century A.H – Imam Sheikh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab Bin Sulaiman Bin Ali Al-Tamimi Al-Hanbali Al-Najdi

It’s difficult to count how many scholars praised him

⇒Sheikh Abu Bakr Sheikh Husain Bin Gannam

Wrote a book on his biography and praised him

⇒Another author was Sheikh Imam Uthman Bin Bishr who in his work, The Banner of Glory, wrote about the Sheikh’s life, preaching, campaigns and jihad.

⇒Author Dr. Ahmad Amin

appraised him in his book entitled

⇒ ‘The Great Leaders of Islamic Reformation’.

⇒Another great scholar was Masood Alam Nadawi

wrote a book about him under the title

‘The Persecuted Reformer’

⇒ The great scholar Muhammad Bin Ismael San’ani was a contemporary of the Imam praised him

⇒Sheikh Muhammad Bin Ali Showkani, the author of Nailul Autar, had written about the Imam.

⇒Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab was born in 1115 A.H though some are of the opinion that it was in 1111 A.H, which is not popular.

He was educated by his father at Oyayna, his homeland. It was a village located at Yamama in Najd, northwest of the city of Riyadh.

He learnt from sheikh Ibn Ibrahim and Sheikh Muhammad Hayat Al-Sindi.

His blessed mission of Tawheed saw the light more Basrah of Iraq

🚦⇒Wahabi term

He was known to be very humble and beloved to everyone

Ibn Bishr stated, “We have not heard of anyone softer or kinder than him to the students of knowledge, to the questioner, to the one in need…”

He was also very generous and simple, never fearing poverty and never attracted by the riches of this world.

Although after some the treasury of al-Diriyyah began to have great wealth and although he was the leader as a spiritual figure and teacher, he did not take any money from All public treasury. He would distribute any wealth he received and was often in debt due to his taking care of students, guests and travelers.’ When he died, he left behind no wealth-in fact, he had debts that were paid by others on his behalf.

When he was unaware of something, he would readily admit that. He would make statements like, “I dont know concerning that…


Abdul-Mushin ibn Baaz, vol. 1, p. 506, quoting from Abdul- Rahmaan ibn Abdul-Lateef ali-Shaikh.

Ibn Bishr, vol. 1, p. 163. Cf, Abdul-Mushin ibn Baaz, vol. 1, p. 507, quoting from Abdel Rahmaan ibn Abdul-Lateef ali-Shaikh; ibn Ghannaam, vol. 1, p. Ibn Ghannaam, vol. 1, p. 213. For more examples, see al-Abood, vol.

P. 319.

Al-Uthaimeen states that there is no doubt that the first people who used this term Wahabi were the opponents of the call, although it is not clear who first used the term.

However, by the time of or shortly after Muhammad Ali Pasha’s attack on al-Diriyyah, the term started to be common.’ There is no question that this term was originally used in order to “drive people away” from the teachings of Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhaab. Of course, in addition to calling them “Wahhabis,” they were also called heretics, infidels and Khawarij.

Al-Uthaimeen, al-Shaikh, p. 101, See also al-Nadwi, p. 203.

* The missionary Zweimer noted that ibn al-Qayyim had similar views to that of ibn Abdul-Wahhaab and concluded that although ibn al-Qayyim considered himself a Hanbali, he was actually a Wahhabi. The fact that ibn al-Qayim lived centuries before ibn Abdul Wahhaab seemed to have been lost on Zweimer. See al-Nadwi, p. 201.

Actually, it became the vogue that anyone who (allowed the Quran and Sunnah and opposed shirk was called a “Wahhabi.” AI-Saabiq, earlier this century,  wrote that he had met many who called Imam Ahmad, Ibn Taimiyyah and others like them “Wahhabis.” Hesitated that if the Companion Abu Bakr would appear among these people, they would definitely call him a “Wahhabi” also. See Pauzaan al-Sabiq, Al-Bayean

Influence on Morocco

Then there was Maula Sulaimaan ibn Muhammad ibn Abdullah (1792-1822 C.E.). Al-Zirikili and many greatly Western references mention that he influenced by the “Wahhabis” after the year 1225 A.H. (1810 C.E.) and he afterwards opposed the innovations of the various Sufi orders. He was in direct contact with Abdullah ibn Saud and sent delegations to Makkah to

make Hajj and study under the scholars there. However, he did not meet with much success in spreading the beliefs of ibn Abdul-Wahhaab.



Jabir narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: ‘Some of the people of TAWHID will be punished in the Fire until they are coals.

▪︎Sahih Jamia Tirmidhi


O Allah! Be with Muhammad and his Ummah who testify/bear witness to you of/with TAWHEED and testify/bear witness to this statement/declaration. ▪︎(Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah, collected by Ibn Hajr al-Asqalani, Matalib al-Aliya volume 3, page 32 (Hassan))


But if your father had affirmed TAWHEED, then fasted and admitted it, that would have been of benefit to him.

▪︎ (Narrated by Jad Amro ibn Shu’aib Musnad al-Ahmad volume 10, page 176 (Saheeh))



You are going to a nation from the people of the Scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite them, be the Tauhid of Allah.

▪︎(Sahih al-Bukhari volume 9, Book 93, Hadith 469 (Eng. Tran.)


Then we looked and verily it was the MESSENGER OF ALLAH CALLING PEOPLE TO THE MONOTHEISM of Allah the Almighty and Majestic (Tauheed Allah Azz wa Jall), and to faith,

As for your father, if he affirmed TAWHID and you fast and give charity on his behalf, it would benefit him.”

▪︎(Imam Ahmad narrated this, See silsilah saheeha (484))


The Prophet said, ‘Allah forgave him because of it, and he did no good actions, besides TAWHID.’”

The Manhaj of the sheikh is the same as prophet Muhammad peace be upon him

⇔Our Manhaj (Islamic Methodology) is Quran and Sunnah with the understanding of the pious predecessors of our Muslim nation who are the direct students (companions: Sahaba) of Prophet Muhammad


“I urge you to adhere to what you know of my

👉🏻Sunnah and the path of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, and cling stubbornly to it..”

▪︎Sahih Ibn Majah/ Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 43


“I have left two matters with you. As long as you hold to them, you will not go the wrong way. ⇒They are the Book of Allah and the Sunna of His Prophet.”

▪︎Reference  Muattae Imam Malik

: Book 46, Hadith

■Abu Dawud narrated:

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) led us in prayer one day, then he turned to us and exhorted us strongly . . . (he said), 👉🏻‘Pay attention to my sunnah (way) and the way of the Rightly-guided Khaleefahs after me, adhere to it and hold fast to it.’”

▪︎(Saheeh Abi Dawud, Kitaab al-Sunnah

The scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah have stated in their books that the other sects are among the misguided and doomed innovated groups, and that they deserve to enter Hell because of the bidaa ideas and worse innovations that they have introduced into the religion of Allaah.

But in most cases they are not regarded as kaafirs, rather they are regarded as Muslim sects.

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) described the saved group as the jamaa’ah, i.e., the consensus of the Muslim scholars. In other reports he also described them as “the vast multitude”, as in the hadeeth of Abu Umaamah and others which is recordedfollow  by Ibn Abi ‘Aasim in al-Sunnah (1/34) and al-Tabaraani in al-Mu’jam al-Kabeer (8/321), with an isnaad that is hasan li ghayrihi (hasan because of corroborating evidence).

Abu Dawud also reported from al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah, may Allaah be pleased with him, that “the Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) led us in prayer one day, then he turned to us and exhorted us strongly . . . (he said), ‘Pay attention to my sunnah (way) and the way of the Rightly-guided Khaleefahs after me, adhere to it and hold fast to it.’” (Saheeh Abi Dawud, Kitaab al-Sunnah

Allah says

“And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell – what an evil destination”

[an-Nisa’ 4:115].

I repeat the hadeeth👇🏻
I urge you to adhere to what you know of my Sunnah and the path of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, and cling stubbornly to it. And you must obey, even if (your leader is) an Abyssinian leader. For the true believer is like a camel with a ring in its nose; wherever it is driven, it complies.”

Sahih Ibn Majah
Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 43


Look to break it down for you i will not hide this fact though i don’t want reverts to see this comment lol


We scare and shun innovators

We are proud to reject innovations

We are proud to talk on Tawheed and


So what!!? What on earth is the problem with being a Salafi. It’s the majority sect of the Ummah Ahlu Sunnah wal Jamaa.
