On Slandering the ‘Ulama and The Pious Shaikhs’ of Tasawwuf
In Defense of True Islamic Belief
(With a warning to the silent ‘Ulama)
Ustadh Muhammad Sa’id Hunafa Qadri
As we draw nearer the Hour of Qiyaamah, there seems to be a proliferation of agents of kufr and batil (falsehood) raising their heads in an attempt to confound the Muslim Ummah. The latest target of their attack on Deen ul Haqq has been the true Muslim leadership found in the form of the ‘Ulama ul Haqq who practice the knowledge of Deen that have acquired and envision living In Islamic states where Shari’ah is enforced in letter and spirit, as well as the pious Shaikhs of Tasawwuf who strive to uplift the Ummat by teaching them how to adhere to Deen in letter and spirit. These two champions of True Deen, The 'Ulama ul Haqq and the Pious Shaikhs of Tasawwuf are the very heartstrings of the Ummah. If they can be eliminated, that is, if love of the 'True 'Ulama and the Pious Shaikhs can be removed from the hearts of the Muslims then the enemy will be able to vanquish the Ummah. Allahu ta ‘ala has promised those who have Imaan and do pious deeds that He will establish them as the power on earth, that He will change their state of fear to a state of peace and security, because the worship Him and don't commit shirk of anything with him. The job of the agents of Shaytaan is to turn the Muslimeen away from those who would safeguard their Deen, and safeguard their Imaan. These guardians are the 'Ulama ul Haqq and the Pious Shaikhs of Tasawwuf.
We have attempted in this brief tract to bring out certain deficiencies in key elements of the arguments of the modernists, and the Wahhaabi/Salafiyya movement in their attack on the Deen ul Haqq. Our hope is that some of the ‘Ulama ul Haqq will take up the challenge and having been put to shame by this effort of a few simple Muslims, lovers of the 'Ulama ul Haqq and the Mashaaikhul Tasawwuf.
We have attempted to do what the silent 'Ulama have failed to do In the United States with the hope that perhaps they will arise, warn and enlighten the Muslim Ummah here In the United States and give those who follow Ahl as Sunnah wal Jam’aat the true leadership we are in need of. This is an age where those who wish to mention the transgressions and tyranny of the corrupt 'Ulama and the abandonment of the Sunnah are given demeaning titles. Those who speak out against transgression in the masaajid throughout the United States are accused of causing fitnah. "Don't cause fitnah brother,” they say when open violations of Shari'ah and the Sunnah are mentioned.
Where are the Ulama ul Haqq who champion the Cause of Islam? Where are the True 'Ulama and Pious Shaikhs of Tasawwuf who arouse the believers to fight in defense of the Deen. They seem to be few and far between. Those who have the Imaan and courage to take up the challenge are labeled "ignorant, fanatical, militant, fundamentalists," while the hypocrites who would compromise our Pristine Deen are labeled enlightened, educated, moderate and level headed.
If this tract succeeds in reaching some believing Muslim and inspires his heart to practice Deen in letter and spirit, the Praise is for Allahu ta 'ala and only the mistakes are ours. We pray that those sincere Mu'mineen in the Arabian Peninsula do not fall prey to the propaganda put out by the Wahhaabi movement that the Ajami 'Ulama are anti Arab.
We hope some of the sincere lovers of truth will find it in their hearts to reproduce this tract and distribute it free of charge to the Muslimeen in the United Stated and Canada as well as any other area they feel might benefit from it. May Allahu ta ‘ala keep us on the correct path and not cause us to deviate after having found our way ameen.

ON SLANDERING THE TRUE ‘ULEMA AND THE PIOUS SHEIKHS OF TASAWWUF
Alhamdulillah we praise Him and seek His Aid and His Forgiveness. We seek refuge In Allahu ta ‘ala from the evils of our lower desires and from deeds which will not benefit us Hereafter. We bear witness that then is none worthy of worship except Allahu ta ‘ala and we bear witness that Sayyidinaa wa Mawlana Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger.
0 Allahu ta 'ala send countless numbers of Salawaat and Barakat on the Best of the Created Being our Sayyid and Your Habeeb, our Mawlanaa Muhammad and on his family and his companions and the pious worshippers until the day of Judgment, with truth.
