Shaykh 'Abdullah Al-Ahmad حفظه الله stated:
By Allāh, the majority of the Sa'āfiqah did not raise a head (in acknowledgment) of those mentioned in the Bayyān until after the writing of the Bayyān. This is also an evidence that no one from the 'Ulamā in the different parts of the Earth agrees with them other than those (Scholars) who are a part of the matter (holding a view different than that of Shaykh Muhammad bin Hādi). For that you find from them happiness with one or two people (who hold a different view than that of Shaykh Muhammad bin Hādi) from those who are affiliated with the knowledge and the 'Ulamā. And the praise is for Allāh, this is the difference between us and the Sa'āfiqah. We do not wait for the support of anyone from the creation due to that which we are upon from the truth.
