Over 10 Years Ago They Said the Same about Shaikh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez bin Baaz, Shaikh Muhammad bin Saleh al ‘Uthaymeen and Shaikh Muhammad Nasirul Deen al Albani not declare the Muslims to be out of the fold of Islam.
Recently the Takfeerees or our time – also known as the Hadadiyoon – have begun to label our beloved Shaikh and teacher Rabe’a bin Hadee al Madkhali (حفظه الله تعالى) as being from the Murjiyah. This is nothing new; they did the same with Shaikh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez bin Baaz, Shaikh Muhammad bin Saleh al ‘Uthaymeen, and Shaikh al Albani (رحمهم الله) over 10 years ago! Not only that, they also curse Shaikh Rabe’a and supplicate to Allah to enter him into the Hell-fire, which is a clear example of their takfeeree traits. This is what they will do to every scholar who clarifies the truth and refutes their deviation and innovation. Consequently, it’s vital for Ahlus Sunnah to be aware of this reality and remain firm upon the truth especially as the fitnah increases and multiplies.
Over ten years ago, Shaikh Saleh al Fowzan (حفظه الله) was asked:
May Allah bless you oh noble scholar! The questioner asks:
There are some youth who accuse Shaikh ‘Abdul Azeez bin Baaz and Shaikh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen of being present day Murjiyah, and they claim that they are the most deviant (individuals) of this Ummah. What is your advice for these individuals?
The Shaikh (حفظه الله) responded:
At any rate, this is not strange. The individual who does not agree with their desires, they accuse him of being from the Murjiyah or (from) other (deviant) groups. They accused Ibn Baaz and Ibn ‘Uthaymeen of Irjah because they did not oppose the rulers and they did not declare the Muslims to be out of the fold of Islam. These individuals want them to do that but when they weren’t able to accomplish this, they accused them of falling into Irjah. Their accusations are based on desires – we seek refuge in Allah. Their accusations against these two Imams are not accurate. We have only known good from them and that they are upright and just. We know them to be eager in their adherence to the Quran, the Sunnah and the way of the Salaf as Saleh. This is what we have learned from them and this is what we know from them – may Allah have mercy upon them.
Thus, when they (Shaikh Ibn Baaz and Ibn ‘Uthaymeen رحمهما الله تعالى) did not conform to their desires and evil incitements, they labeled them with Irjah, because the person who does not declare the Muslims to be out of the fold of Islam is a Murji in their opinion.

 One of their leaders (Ibn Hamid al Atharee stated on their website: It is mandatory that we hold Rabe’a al Madkhali to be a disbeliever. He has violated the religion of Allah and he has opposed the legislation!
