Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhāb [d. 1791] – Dismissing rumours spread about him in a Letter to the Village of Qasīm, Najd.


They had asked him to clarify some of the rumours being spread, so he wrote this tract in response to them. I briefly only relate the parts of the letter that directly respond to unfounded accusations circulated about him today.

Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhāb [d. 1791] said: “…I do not testify that anyone from the Muslims are in Paradise or in Hell except for those whom The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ has testified. However I hope for the righteous and fear for the sinner…”

“…And I do not accuse anyone from the Muslims of being a kāfir (non-Muslim) due to a sin, and I do not expel them from the fold of Islām.”

→ This letter is found in the sixteen volume work, “ad-Durar as-Saniyyah fīl-Ajwibah an-Najdiyyah” – 1/29-35 | Translated by: Abu Dawūd [Mustafa b. Saalih] al-Ḥushayshi
