Response to Shaykh Gamieldien

“Draping the grave with cloth and burning incense” and things like that – I don’t know if these people are aware of the subtleties of these things or the influences that have impacted upon them. So one tries to maintain husnu dhan – good thought – for all Muslims. For the spirit of the Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama’at is precisely that and the Qur’an says (translation): “Stay away from speculation, for some of your speculations are in fact sin”. And these kinds of speculation (by wahabis), as far as I am concerned, are sin. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) also said (translation): Your Muslim brother, when you see him reciting shahadah, believing in Allah (s.w.t.) and following the Prophet (s.a.w.), and you see him performing some kind of abhoration, then look for an excuse for him.
