The Conditions of Abdulkarīm Al-Khudayr, Abdul-‘Azīz Ar-Rayyīs, Sādiq Al-Baydhāni and Khālid Al-Baghdādi


What’s the condition of ‘Abdulkarīm Al-Khudayr, and ‘Abdul-‘Azīz Ar-Rayyīs, and Sādiq Al-Baydhāni who lives in Riyādh, and Khālid Al-Baghdādi who is from the students of Shaykh Muqbil, may Allah have mercy upon him?


Sādiq Al-Baydhāni; his condition is clear that he resembles Halabi and Ma’ribi, and that he treads upon their Tamyee’ī methodology, similarly his chasing after being on motion picture satellite channels, and other than this.

➖’Abdul-‘Azīz Ar-Rayyīs, he sat down with our Shaykh Yahya, may Allah preserve him, and our Shaykh advised him on the subject matter of him praising Ihyā at-Turāth, and other hizbi organisations, and him visiting them, similarly the subject matter of picture taking, and other affairs which are observations against him.

You also find him being reckless in opposing the knowledge-based establishments of the people of knowledge, affairs which are built upon complete extrapolation from the legislative texts of the Book and the Sunnah, and this extrapolations are a binding evidence if they occurred from those who are qualified in this.

This is the case with his rebuking the conditions of lā illaha illallah being seven.

Similarly his criticism of the Imāms in their way of usage as evidences, for example in how they use as statement of Allah:

(فَٱسْتَغَٰثَهُ ٱلَّذِى مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ عَلَى ٱلَّذِى مِنْ عَدُوِّهِ)

“The man of his (own) party asked him for help against his foe”

As evidence in the topic of the permissible Istighātha (seeking aid and assistance at distress), and he attributed this to Shaykh-Ul-Islām, while Shaykh-Ul-Islām himself used this as an evidence for the permissibility of Istighātha with a creation; while alive, present, capable, conditions which are well known.

Similarly the subject matter of slaughtering animals while facing a Sultān (leader, ruler).

Similarly his oppositions in other establishments in the affairs relating Tawhīd, some of our brothers have clarified this in a book which has been printed.

➖’Abdul-Karīm Al-Khudayr, then I do not have much knowledge of him, but what I do know from him is that he hasn’t got distinction from the people of innovation. (Click here for more recent speech on him

➖As for Al-Baghdādi, then I do not know him, whoever was to be from the students of Imām Al-Wādi’ī, may Allah have mercy upon him, then they should be asked about with our Shaykh, the ‘Allāmah, Yahya bin ‘Ali Al-Hajoori, may Allah preserve him, he will be the most knowledgeable in their regards.

Answered by:
Shaykh Abu Hatim Yusuf Al-‘Inaabi Al-Jazaa’iree – may Allah preserve him.
