The Danger Of The Eloquent Speech Of The Callers To Misguidance : Sheikh Saaleh al Fawzaan

The long Hadith collected by Imam Bukhari [(rahimahullah)Vol 9, No:7084.]

on the authority of Hudhaifa Bin al-Yamaan (radiyallaahu anhu), that  evil will appear, until there appears callers to the gates of hell-fire, and that whoever responds to their call will be thrown by them in the fire.  These callers will be from our own people and will speak our language.

The Messenger (sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam) said:

”They(i.e. these callers to the gates of hell-fire) will be from our own people and will speak our language”

Sheikh Saaleh Al Fawzaan said:

This is Calamity!!  Indeed, they are close to us.  They are from our community and country. Had they been foreigners, had they been from America or other than it, then the affair would have been easy.  However, the problem is that they are the son/s of so and so, and it may be that they say, ”I am a scholar, and I have with me shahaadaat ilmiyyah and I am…and I am…

They are from us, and they speak with our tongue.  They are Arabs like us; rather they possess eloquence.  When they write or deliver a speech, or a lecture, they speak with our tongue just as Allah said concerning the hypocrites:

”And when they speak, you listen to their words” (Al Munaafiquun 63:4)

They possess eloquence that grabs the attention of the listener.  The listener listens to them because of their eloquent speech.   The Prophet (sallal-laahu alayhi wasallam) said:

”Indeed some eloquent speech has the influence of magic”(e.g., some people refuse to do something and then a good eloquent speaker addresses them and then they agree to do that very thing after his speech) (Bukhari Vol 7. Hadith No: 5146)

They speak with our tongue (i.e the Arabic tongue).  And had they spoken with a foreign language or the language of the Persians, there would not have been inclination towards them.  However, the problem is that when they speak with eloquent speech/good style of speech, the people are lured towards them.  This is from the height of fitnah.

[Ref: Sharhu Hadiithi inna kunnaa fee jaahiliyyatin of sheikh Fawzaan, Page 35-36]

Therefore, O Sunni Salafi, ponder upon the words of the Allaama Saaleh al Fawzaan (hafidha-hullah) and ask Allah for firmness upon the sunnah.  Do not bewildered by the great numbers of open callers to shirk and innovations from among the 72 destroyed sects upon opposition to the way of our salafus saalih, nor join those so-called eloquent speakers of the parties and organizations upon haraam unity.
