Shaikh Ahmad Bazmool (hafithahullah) On Shaikh Raslaan (hafithahullah)

Questioner: As Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Wa Alaikumus Salaam Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

Questioner: Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool?

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Ahmad

Questioner: As Salaamu Alaikum Yaa Shaykh, you have with you one of the Salafies from Egypt.

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Proceed, HayyaakAllah

Questioner: Shaykh may I ask a question?

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Go Ahead.

Questioner: May I record it?

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Go Ahead.

Questioner: Shaykh, a big fitnah has come up here in Egypt. We would like your guidance (in this affair). We hear Shaykh Muhammad Sa’eed Raslaan speaking badly about Shaykh Muhammad Ibraaheem and we hear Shaykh Muhammad Ibraaheem speaking badly about Shaykh Raslaan. We would like your advice: which one do you advise us to seek knowledge from?

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: By Allah, Yaa Akhee may Allah reward you; the one that I know and that which has reached me is that Shaykh Khaalid ‘Abdur Rahmaan, Shaykh Abu ‘Abdil A’ala Al Misree, and a group of students of knowledge from Egypt praise Shaykh Raslaan; however they do not praise this second one you mentioned –Muhammad Ibraaheem. Rather, they mention (Muhammad Ibraaheem’s) mistakes in the Salafy Minhaj. Also I know (personally) that Shaykh Rabee’ praises Shaykh Raslaan. I have also heard that Muhammad Ibraaheem visited Shaykh Rabee’ but like it is said or like Shaykh Rabee himself said with regards to the question when there is a difference of opinion about a person (i.e. paraphrasing Shaykh Rabee’),

Going to the one whom there is no difference of opinion about him takes precedence

So Al-Hamdu-lillah the Mashaayikh with you in Egypt are well known. Benefit from them and refer to them. (The likes of): Shaykh Hasan Al Bannaa, Shaykh Khaalid ‘Abdur Rahmaan and Shaykh Abu ‘Abdil A’ala. They are well known for knowledge, Sunnah and Minhaj. And Shaykh Raslaan as I have mentioned has been praised by those Mashaayikh, hayyaakumullah.

Questioner: Shaykh, may Allah reward and preserve you O Shaykh.

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Hayyaakumullah

Questioner: As Salaamu Alaikum

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool: Wa Alaikumus Salaam Wa Rahmatullah
