The condition of Ahmed Al-Hāzimi

As for Ahmed Al-Hāzimi, then this man is from the supporters of the group Daish!

And this is established upon him, he descended in Tunisia upon the supporters of this group, upon the supporters of the Daish, and this affair is known.

Likewise the followers of this group push him forward, they spread his audios, and statements on their websites, while at the same time you find them speaking ill of the scholars of the Sunnah!

As it’s been authentically narrated in Sahīh Muslim, on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet ﷺ said:

“The souls are like recruited soldiers, when they recognise one another they are at harmony, and when they disagree with one another they are at variance.”

And it came Mu’alliqan in Bukhari on the authority of ‘Aaisha, may Allah be pleased with her.

They mentioned this clearly on their websites, that those that invited him in Tunisia, are those “Ansār Sharī’ah“!
As they named themselves.

Likewise it has been relayed from one of the heads of the Daish group, that he requested from Ahmed Al-Hāzimi to put forth his opinion on what they call the Islamic state!

This is what is being spread on their websites, with this you do not find any rebuke from this man of that which they attribute to him.

And the fact that some of the people of knowledge praised this man, does not negate these clear cut affairs which has occurred from him.

➖Either the one who praised him wasn’t aware of his situation.

➖Or he was deceived by him, due to what he manifested of Sunnah!

His affair being the affair of the people of desires, they excel in deception, and manifesting the Sunnah to the people of knowledge, so that they can reach that which they wish, fulfilling their needs by doing this, which is obtaining praises from them, and other than this.

➖Or a person could be known by them for the Sunnah, and then whatever happened to them happened.

This is it, may Allah bless you all.

Rather they mention on their websites that he declares the rulers of Sa’ūdiyyah to be disbelievers!
And he has speech which aids the likes of this speech in his explanation of Ājrūmiyyah, saying therein:

“A lot of the scholars in this country Sa’ūdiyah are apostates!!
And if their not apostates! Then they are immoral innovators!!”

Like this is how he said it.
And he said:

“We thought that this country, meaning Sa’uudiyyah doesn’t contain any affairs of shirk, disbelief…”

This speech is clear that he wants to say that there is disbelief in it, and shirk and other than this of that which is clearly found in his speech. He wants to authenticate the methodology of those that praise him, the Takfīris and their likes.

And likewise you find that this man has severe leaning towards declaring people disbelievers.

The establishments of Takfīr is in a number of his statements, you will find it very clear in its regard.

Likewise he visits those affected with the ideology of Takfīr, like when he visited Egypt with the congregation of ‘Abdul-Maqsūd, likewise other than this man of those that are upon the same thing.

As some of the salaf mentioned:

“Whoever hides from us their innovations, can not hide from us who they are at harmony with.”

So the advise to our brothers is:
Do not become deceived by the explanations of this man which are being spread, and the advertisement that some people are doing for him!!

The Da’wah, the Creed and the Uprightness of a person explains what he is upon.

Do not be like those that become deceived by the likes of these affairs only.

Wait until you see that a person is in agreement with the Book and the Sunnah.

Even if he was to walk on water or fly in the sky.

Al-Layth said:
“Even if he walked on water”

Ash-Shāfi’ī said:

“Al-Layth fell short, even if he walked on water, and flew in the sky, don’t get deceived by him, until you see him being in agreement with the Book and the Sunnah.”

The Salaf had deep insight.

All praise is to Allah, the many explanations of Ahlussunnah and their scholars suffice from having to turn to the explanations of this man, and other deviants like him.

Allah, the Most High, said:

(أَتَسْتَبْدِلُونَ ٱلَّذِى هُوَ أَدْنَىٰ بِٱلَّذِى هُوَ خَيْرٌ)

“Would you exchange that which is better for that which is lower?”

My advise to our brothers is that they distance themselves from this man, and his explanations, and his audios.

If there was any good found with him, then that good is also found with others from Ahlussunnah, the man is not upon the Sunnah.

As the ‘Allamāh Ibn ‘Utheymīn, may Allah have mercy upon him, was asked about the tapes and books of Salmān and Safar, it was said to him: is there good therein?
Whereby he replied:

“The good that’s found with them is found with other than them” meaning: with Ahlussunnah.

Even if good was to be found, even if some agreement to the good was found with them, then the Sunnah that they spoke with in the affair which they were in agreement upon.

It’s found with Ahlussunnah, and it’s established by Ahlussunnah.

Why do we turn to them when we have Scholars of Ahlsunnah available, and all praise is for Allah, even though they are small in number, even though Ahlussunnah are small in number in every place, but they are present, and all praise is for Allah.

(لا تزال طائفة من أمتي على الحق ظاهرين لا يضرهم من خالفهم ولا من خذلهم حتى يأتي أمر الله وهم على ذلك)

“A group of people from my Ummah will always remain manifest upon the Truth. They are not harmed by those that oppose them nor those who desert them. They will remain in this position until Allah’s Command is executed.”

So the point of benefit, may Allah bless you all, is the:

Distancing from those deviants, those extremists.

And at the same time you find him coming with Tamyee’ī speech in what relates to refutations, and rebuttals of the opposers, this is the condition of the extreme, you will find them combining with both Tamyee‘ (watering down) and Ghuluww (going out of bounds) in many of their affairs.

And Ahlssunnah have unanimously agreed upon that this knowledge is religion.

Ibn Sirīn, may Allah have mercy upon him, said:

“Verily this knowledge is religion so look at who you take your religion from.”

This your religion Oh brother!
Your most valuable possession!
Your salvation in this life and the hereafter!
Look at who you take it from, take it from the salafi, the trustworthy person of knowledge, don’t take it from the likes of this person, whom you have come to know of his condition what I have mentioned to you.

And there is much more.
This is a summary of the clarification of the condition of this person.

And refuge is sought from Allah.
