Ruling on book entitled 'Kashf Al-Akinnah' by Abdul-Wahhab Mahiyyah


What is your opinion about a book entitled “Kashf Al-Akinnah ‘Amma Qila ‘Innahu Bid’ah Wahwa Sunnah (Revealing the Secrets concerning what is Deemed as Bid’ah [innovation in the religion] while it is a Sunnah [acts, sayings or approvals of the Prophet])” by ‘Abdul-Wahhab Mahiyyah?


After reviewing the mentioned book, I realized that its author is not one of the reliable scholars in respect of the rulings of Shari’ah (Islamic law). He regarded some Bid’ahs as acts of the Sunnah. It is necessary to refer to the books of the verifying scholars known for their religiousness, honesty and conversance with Islamic knowledge.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions
