Khawarij, The Soofeeyah, The Rafidah (Shia) and The Ikhwan Muslimoon

Imam ad-Dhahabi (d.748 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said: ‘The Khawarij are the people of Bida’, they make it Halaal to take
the blood of people, and they perform Takfeer.’ [Taken from: ‘Al-Kabair’]

The statements here were taken from the biography of the Shaykh, which was compiled by the Shaykh’s son Abdul Awal
bin Hamad al-Ansaari who is a teacher in the faculty of Hadeeth in the prestigious Islaamic University of Madina. The
Collection is called: ‘al-Majmoo’ Fee Tarjama al-Allama al-Muhaddith ash-Shaykh Hamad bin Muhammad al-Ansaari –
Rahimullaah- wa Seeratahi wa Aqwaalihi wa Rihlatihi’. It is a large two-volume collection of the sayings, wisdom and
various biographies of the Shaykh. The statements in this translation are all from his son Abdul Awal unless stated

Indeed the Prophet – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – informed his Companions about the Khawarij, that they would rebel
and that he desired to fight them. In the Saheeh of Bukhari and Muslim from the hadeeth of ‘Alee -radiAllaah anhu – that he said: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – saying:
‘During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats and they will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of game. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.’
[Saheeh al-Bukhari & ‘Fath’12/283 (Hadeeth no.6930) & Muslim 2/746 (Hadeeth no.1066)].
