Shaykh Ibn Jibreen and the Innovators
Shaykh Ibn Jibreen was a person of knowledge who in the early 1990s got involved, unfortunately, with personalities like Muhammad al-Misery and his organization called CDLR (an organization practically working to effect Leninist and Marxist type revolutions in Muslim lands). Through this interaction the Shaykh was led to hold erroneous opinions towards Innovators such as Hasan al-Banna and Sayyid Qutb. He proceeded to defend these individuals, not upon knowledge and baseerah or any kind of detailed research, but out of sentiments and out of the affectation he suffered from as a result of being involved with such unsavouries. Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) and other scholars blasted the CDLR in very powerful words (we have the audio and will publish separately on this site inshaa'Allaah) and the scholars expressed their disappointment with the likes of Ibn Jibreen getting involved with these people. Unfortunately that connection harmed the Shaykh in that he became blinded to what these people were really upon, for he, in his methodology, was not upon the doctrines and methodologies that these takfiri revolutionaries were upon, even if he was deceived by them in his perception of the Innovators such as Qutb and Bannaa. As such, whilst the truth is clear expressed in many of his statements regarding the rulers, the issues of Takfir, the issue pertaining to the Secular Laws that the rulers have been put to trial with, revolting, terrorism and so on, he unfortunately, showed lenience towards these Innovators even if the truth that is found in much of his speech actually convicts these very same people. Due to Shaykh Ibn Jibreen's persistence in defending these people however, Shaykh Ibn Jibreen was powerfully and forcefully refuted, and his contradiction made clear by the likes of Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee who wrote a series of refutations against him, and also expelled him from Ahl us-Sunnah for his continued allegiance to and defence of Jahmite Ash'ari and Sufi Innovators (see this series here) and Kharijites such as Usamah Bin Laden (see here).
Shaykh Ibn Jibreen on the Khawaarij (Revolters)
In fatwa no 5876, with the title ( حكم الذين يكفرون بالذنوب ويستبيحون الخروج على ولاة الأمور) (The Ruling on Those who Make Takfir by Way of Sin and Permit Revolting Against the Rulers), Shaykh Ibn Jibreen was asked:
ورد في أحد فتواكم رقم (3407) ما نصه:. . . أما الذين يكفرون بالذنوب ويستبيحون الخروج على ولاة الأمور فإنهم إذا خرجوا على الولاة فهم خوارج وإرهابيون ومن كلاب النار قال البعض: الذين يكفرون بالذنوب ولا يستبيحون الخروج لا يسمون خوارج، فهل تفضلتم ببيان ذلك؟ وما حكم معاملة من أظهر الصلح منهم وأنه رجع؟ وهل يحذر الناس منهم لأفكارهم؟
There occurs in your fatwa no 3407, whose text is:
The Shaykh's response:
ما ذكر في هذه الفتوى فإنه صحيح، وقد ذكر العلماء أنه لا يجوز نبذ الطاعة ولا الخروج على الأئمة، ولا مفارقة الجماعة، وأن على المسلم السمع والطاعة لولاة الأمر ولو ظهر منهم بعض المعاصي، فإن الخروج عليهم يحدث الفوضى وكثرة الفتن وزعزعة الأمن وقتل الأبرياء وحصول الأذى، فلأجل ذلك جاء الأمر بالسمع والطاعة بقوله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "اسمع وأطع وإن ضُرب ظهرك وأُخذ مالك" ولا شك أن الذين يكفرون بالذنوب يعتبرون من الخوارج ولو لم يخرجوا على الولاة، وتجوز معاملة من أظهر الصلح وقام بالواجب، فيعامل كمعاملة المسلمين حتى يظهر منه ما يخالف الحق والدليل.
What was mentioned in this fatwa is correct, for the Scholars have mentioned that it is not permissible to shun obedience and nor to revolt against the Rulers, and nor to separate from the Jamaa'ah, and that it is upon a Muslim to hear and obey those in authority, even if some of the sins appear from them. For revolting against them brings about confusion (strife) and an abundance of tribulations, the violent rocking of the (the current) security, safety (that is present), killing of the innocent, and the attainment of harm. For this reason, the command to hear and obey has come with his (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam's) saying: "Hear and obey, even if your back is beaten and your wealth is confiscated".
Another, huge and mighty stake in the da'wah of the Qutbiyyah. As we have said, Shaykh Ibn Jibreen was deceived about the truth regarding Qutb, Banna and others by the unsavoury people that he got involved with in the early 1990s. And while he was vocal in his defence of these innovators, he was certainly not upon the methodologies of these people.
And who revived Takfir of the sinners (rulers or ruled) and calls for destructive Leninist type revolts against rulers and ruled, the same characteristics upon which Shaykh Ibn Jibreen applied the labels of (خوارج وإرهابيون ومن كلاب النار) "Khawaarij, Terrorists, Dogs of Hellfire"? Here is your answer:
And it is from the greatest of deception of the Qutbiyyah - which has now been thoroughly exposed - that they pick and choose statements of the Scholars to cause doubt and confusion and through which they try to make out that they are with the Scholars. All they were doing for the past 15 years was to pick and choose selected isolated statements, scenarios, or situations, and use them to create layers of mist and fog by which to deceive and delude other Muslims away from from the truth, from recognizing the true methodologies that all of the Scholars were in fact united upon as a whole, even if amongst them were those who had something of error in an issue or two (or more), such as Shaykh Ibn Jibreen, or Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd.
Walhamdulillaah - their misguidance has been laid bare in plain sight! All they need to do now is to make tawbah for their disgraces over the past 15 years.
