Is It Allowed to Ask Allāh to Have Mercy upon People of Bidʿah?

Shaikh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him, said:

As for asking Allāh to have mercy upon people of innovation [by saying raḥimahullah–may Allāh have mercy on him–and the like], then indeed, it is permissible to ask Allāh to have mercy on them.

This is something the Righteous Predecessors were upon, and from them was Aḥmad ibn Ḥanbal. Texts from the Book of Allāh, All-Great is He and All-High, and from the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ are evidence for that.

The one who contests this is ignorant and astray.

May Allāh increase in His praises for our Prophet Muḥammad, his family, and his companions; and may He protect them from every harmful thing.

The Meaning of “ʿIbādah”

Shaikh Muḥammad Bāzmūl, may Allāh protect him from every harm, said:

العِبَادَةُ: اِسْمٌ جَامِعٌ لِكُلِّ مَا يُحِبُّهُ اللهُ وَيَرْضَاهُ مِنْ الأَقْوَالِ وَالأَعْمَالِ الظَاهِرَةِ وَالبَاطِنَةِ.

Al-ʿIbādah is a comprehensive word [that covers] everything that Allāh loves and is pleased with, of speech and deeds, outward and inward.

Anger Over Loss

[Shaikh] Ibn Uthaimīn, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

When [every individual] thing, all of it, belongs to Allāh–if He were to take something from you, it’s something that belongs to Him, and if He were to give you something, it’s something that belongs to Him–how can you get angry and detest [it when something is taken]?!

Sharḥ Riyaḍ Al-Ṣaliḥīn, vol. 1, p. 207.

Some Who Wrongly Call Themselves Salafīs

Shaikh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him from every harm, said:

Some people, wrongly and oppressively, say they belong to this [Salafī] methodology. They have come out in public with low, despicable, rotten approaches and manners, and from that Salafiyyah is being struck using the name of Salafiyyah.

Al-Dharīʿah, vol. 3, p. 214

The Greatest of Manners

Shaikh Ibn Bāz, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

This is what is the root of noble manners, its foundation, the greatest of them, and most obligatory of them: tawḥīd of Allāh,¹ ikhlāṣ for Him,² and abandoning all acts of shirk³ with Him.

Then following that are the five prayers; they are the greatest of manners and most important of them after tawḥīd and abandoning all acts of shirk³ with Allāh, all perfect is He and all high.

¹singling Him out in worship and everything that is His alone
²seeking only His pleasure and His reward in the Hereafter
³treating other than Allāh as an equal of His in something that is only His
