[By Moulana Huzaifah Ibraaheem]
Many people may not be familiar with this term, hence they may be wondering: “Who exactly are the Madkhalis?”
Madkhalis are a branch of the Salafis.
Some people have the misconception that Salafiyyah and the Salafis are one, unified body, but this is very far from the truth. Rather, the Salafis are divided up into many small sects, each with different leaders, different beliefs, different agendas, different ideologies, different methodologies, etc. Perhaps the only thing the various sects truly have in common is that they all hate each other. Other than that, everything else is up for debate, with the very concept of “What is Tawheed?” being a “controversial” issue among the various Salafi subsects, with a variety of conceptions of what exactly Tawheed is and what it entails, e.g. “Is Haakimiyyah part of Tawheed?”, and so on.
Thus, the very first point the readers must realise is that the Salafis are perhaps more divided than any other group, and they certainly fight among one another and kill one another more than any other group has done in recent times.
The Madkhalis, then, are simply one sect from the many sects of Salafiyyah, and the Abu Iyaad Amjad Rafiq character belongs to this subsect of Salafism. From the various Salafi sects, the Madaakhilah (Madkhalis) are the most hated and the most hateful: the rest of the Salafi sub sects unanimously hate them with a passion, and they hate the rest of the Salafis. Their hatred for other Salafis far exceeds their hatred for the Kuffaar; in fact, they (the Madaakhilah) love the Kuffaar and will happily see the Muslims suffer if it means safety for the Kuffaar.
When this is their hatred for even other Salafis, it goes without saying that their hatred for the rest of the Ummah (those who are not Salafis) is worse.
The Madaakhilah are the followers of a man from Saudi Arabia by the name of Rabee` ibn Haadi al-Madkhali, a Salafi Shaykh born in 1931. His Asaatidhah (teachers) include bin Baaz, ibn al`Uthaymeen, al-Albaani, `Abdul Muhsin al-`Abbaad and others. He taught at the Faculty of Hadeeth in Madeenah University for many years until he retired in the mid-1990s. He was made head of the Department of Sunnah in the Department of Higher Studies.
Earlier in his life he had expressed views criticising the Saudi government, but later on became their biggest supporter from all of the scholars within Saudi Arabia, and Saudi began using him to justify all their satanism such as allowing U.S. troops to enter the Jazeeratul `Arab, and preaching an ideology of absolute submission to the Zaalim, Kaafir Saudi government which in turn is the stooge of America. Those who follow him are known as Madaakhilah (Madkhalis), and they resemble a cult more than any other Salafi sect does. To them, there is no Islaam outside of what is preached by Rabee` alMadkhali. Though they hate Taqleed of the Four Madhaahib of Haqq (Hanafi, Maaliki, Shaafi`ee and Hanbali), they themselves are the absolute blindest Muqallideen, rabid cult-worshippers of Rabee` al Madkhali.
The various Arab Zaalim states have always favoured the Madkhalis on account of their blind support for these Kufr, tyrannical regimes which kill, imprison and torture Muslims. Yet, Allaah Ta`aalaa has made it such that even after all of their grovelling at the feet of the Zaalim rulers, with the rise of MBS (Murtadd bin Shaytaan), even these “Dog Scholars”, “Palace Scholars”, worshippers at the feet of the Taaghoot rulers, they themselves now undergo persecution as well, because MBS does not even want their version of Islaam. He wants no Islaam whatsoever, because he is a Shaytaan in human form who hates Allaah Ta`aalaa, hates Rasoolullaah صلی اللہ علیه وسلم and hates the Deen of Islaam.
In summary: the Madkhalis are the “dogs of the rulers” who are forever barking at anyone who in any way criticises the Kufr, Zaalim regimes or proclaims the Haqq.
The Madkhalis in reality are the Khawaarij of today; because, the salient feature of the Khawaarij described by Rasoolullaah صلی اللہ علیه وسلم is that they kill the people of Islaam and leave the people of idol-worship alone.
The Madkhalis fit this description perfectly. All of their hatred has always been focused only on Muslims. They only argue with Muslims and only fight with Muslims. They have never in their lives stood up for the Haqq. Rather, they have attempted to make the worship of Taaghoot part of Islaam.
This Baatil, Satanic sect known as “Madkhalis” has been refuted not only by other groups outside of Salafism, but they have even been refuted time and again by other sub sects of Salafiyyah themselves and their evil has been made manifest. Their agenda of trying to make Muslims subservient to Taaghoot has been exposed.
In their personal lives, these people are absolutely devoid of true Deen. Many of them in recent years have popped up in the UK: the likes of Abu Khadeejah, etc.
In the UK, they are known for their vile treatment of Muslim women, of the wives they marry, treating them as cheap prostitutes. They have ruined the lives of many Muslim families, and many of those who had been Madkhalis but later abandoned this sect especially the womenfolk have testified to this and to what they experienced living under the Madkhalis.
Before concluding this point, there is one last issue that must be addressed, and that is the Madkhali Salafi style of dressing which has lately been adopted by not only Salafis but other Muslims as well: the long, silky dress and the red and white scarf.
The Saudis and those who follow them drag themselves around in these long, silky dresses which hang not just on the ankle but far below it. They have moved very far away from the Sunnah of Rasoolullaah صلى الله علیه وسلم and Sahaabah رضي الله عنهم.
Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضي الله عنهم were people of Jihaad. The fitness level of the Sahaabah رضي الله عنهم was such that they were able to run and jump onto a moving horse and ride it without even the need for a saddle. Compare this to the Saudi Salafis with their “thawbs” that sweep the streets. They cannot even run while wearing it, let alone fight in Jihaad. Their obesity is appalling. Their style of dressing, with the silky dress dragging around on the floor, is that of homosexuals and has absolutely nothing to do with the Sunnah of Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم and his Sahaabah رضي الله عنهم, and this is something which people must understand very clearly. There are people who think that they are following the Sunnah if they purchase these long silky dresses and that red and white scarf. We must clarify this: By dressing in this manner, you are following Aal Sa`ood (the Saudis), not Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم.
Those who know a little bit about the history of these Saudis and how they were the stooges of Britain will know about a man by the name of Thomas Edward Lawrence, more famously known as “Lawrence of Arabia”, a British archaeologist, army officer, diplomat and writer. During the time of the Ottomans, he bribed and instigated many of the various Bedouin tribes into rising up against them. The red andwhite scarf (known as a ghutrah or shimaagh) was worn exclusively by those Bedouin tribes who had given their allegiance to Britain. Thus, the red-and-white scarf historically signifies loyalty and allegiance (Walaa) to the Kuffaar. It is most hypocritical and ironic, then, to wear that long dress and that red-and-white scarf designed by Britain while speaking about “al-Walaa wal-Baraa”.
It used to be that only the Salafis dressed in this way, but unfortunately today even many of the “Ulamaa” around the world dress like this as well. The original Sunnah of Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم and his Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضي الله عنهم has been shunned and replaced with a long, tight, silky dress that inhibits a person from being able to fight in Jihaad, and a red-and-white scarf that symbolises subservience to Britain.
فإ الله المشتكى وهو مستعان
The Salafis dress like this despite knowing and admitting that it is not how Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم and Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضي الله عنهم used to dress. The excuse tendered by and Sahaabah the Salafis is that, “we must dress according to custom.”
It is narrated that once, Hadhrat Huzaifah ibn al-Yamaan رضي الله عنه was invited to partake of a meal. Present at the meal were some of the leaders of the Persians. During the meal, a morsel of food he was eating fell down, so he picked it up, cleaned it and ate it. One of the Muslims present tried to stop him from doing so, saying that the Persians will think badly of him if he does this. Hadhrat Huzaifah رضي الله عنه became angry at this man and said:
أأترك سنه حبيبي لهؤ لاء الحمقى؟
“What! Should I abandon the Sunnah of my beloved for the sake of these fools?”
That is the difference between the mindset of Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضي الله عنهم and the mindset of these “Salafi Shuyookh”.
Imaam al-Ghazaali رحمة الله عليه used to say that amongst the secrets to Sa`aadah (happiness and contentment) is following the Sunnah of Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم in entirety; in how he ate, drank, slept, dressed, walked, spoke, smiled, laughed, fought, dealt with people, etc. That was the understanding of the Ummah all the years until the Salafis decided to pick and choose from the Sunnah what they felt should be followed, and what the felt was not necessary, they discarded.
Salafis generally lack true love and respect for Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم and Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضوان الله عليهم hence they will refer to Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم simply as “Muhammad”, and to Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضوان الله عليهم “Abu Bakr,” “`Umar”, “`Uthmaan”, “`Ali”, etc.
Not only do they refer to Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضوان الله عليهم and the illustrious A’immah of Islaam in a manner devoid of respect, they even go as far as to insult and criticise them. Their hatred for Imaam Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه is well known. Once again, the biggest culprits in this regard among the Salafis are the Madkhalis. Out of all the various Salafi sub-sects, the Madaakhilah are the most vitriolic haters of Imaam Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه, of the Hanafi Madh-hab, and of the Ash`ari and Maatureedi Madh-habs of `Aqeedah.
If any Madkhali reads this he will claim this to be false, but their actions have proven that they have a disregard for the A’immah of Islaam whom they despise, hence they attack the greatest of `Ulamaa as they see fit.
There are Madkhalis who have gone as far as to question whether Abu Haneefah رحمة الله عليه was in fact a Muslim or not, and who have made Takfeer of Imaam ibn Hajar al`Asqalaani رحمة الله عليه Fakhr-ud-Deen Raazi رحمة الله عليه, Imaam al-Ghazaali رحمة الله عليه etc. on account of the fact that they were Ash`aris.
No goodness has ever come from the Madkhalis, and many – if not most of those who become Madkhalis do not stay Madkhalis for long. The Salafis themselves have coined a phrase: “Salafi Burnout”, as a reference to those who become rabid, cult-worshipper Madkhalis, making Takfeer and Tabdee` of the rest of the Ummah, only to abandon Madkhalism and even Salafism entirely later on and become a pseudo “Sufi” who only believes in “love” , singing and dancing, saying they left the cult because they found it to be “cold and empty” from the one baatil extreme to the other. This is another testimony to the fact that Madkhalism is a Baatil cult and has nothing to do with the true Islaam of the Rasoolullaah صلی الله علیه وسلم and Sahaabah-e-Kiraam رضي الله عنهم, Islaam which was followed by the Salaf-us-Saaliheen.
