Answered by our Shaykh, the ‘Allaamah, the Sincere Adviser, Abu ‘Abdirrahman Yahya bin ‘Ali Al-Hajoori – may Allaah preserve him –
What do you say regarding an individual who praises the Ihyaa Turaath organisation?
Ihyaa Turath is a Hizbi organisation that keeps their money in banks, and their organisation participates in elections within their ranks, and likewise they also take pictures of animate beings. Furthermore they aid the Hizbiyoon against the Salafiyoon, and other than this of legislative violations which are found with the Hizbi organisations. It’s an obligation to warn from the trials and tribulations which splits the Muslims and pushes them into Hizbiyyah (bigoted partisanship), differencing and sins, like the case of these organisations.
