Ten Points Regarding the Manhaj of Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen
The Muftee of Jeezaan, Shaykh Ahmad ibn Yahyaa an-Najmee
>From his book:
Al-Fataawa al-Jaliyyah ‘anil-manaahij ad-Da’wiyyah (pgs 102-104)

Translated by an-Nahj al-Waadih

The noble Shaykh (hafidhahullaah) said:

The definition of Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen is: they are those who follow and attach 
(themselves) to Hasan al-Banaa, and there are some observations upon their 
manhaj, the most important of which follow:

1) Carelessness and neglect in regards to Tawheed al-‘Ibaadah, which is the 
most important thing in Islaam, and the servant’s Islaam is not correct except 
by it.

2) Their silence and approval of the people being upon Shirk al-Akbar (major 
Shirk); from du’aa to other than Allaah, and circumambulation (tawaaf) of the 
graves, and swearing oaths to their inhabitants, and sacrificing by their 
names, and what is similar to that.

3) That verily the founder of this manhaj is soofee; he has a connection to the 
Soofiyyah; when he took the bay’ah from ‘Abdul-Wahhaab al-Hasaafee upon his 
Hasaafiyyah ash-Shaadhiliyyah Tareeqah (soofee order).

4) The presence of innovation amongst them, and their establishing worship by 
it, rather it is the basis of their manhaj. They attest that the Prophet 
(sallallahu alayhee wa salaam) attends their sittings of dhikr and forgives 
them for what has proceeded from their sins, in their saying:

“The Ilaah sent prayers upon the noor [i.e. the Prophet] which appeared
for the ‘aalameen (all that which exists), and out shined the sun and the moon,
this is the beloved [i.e. the Prophet] attending with the beloved
and has forgiven for all that which has passed and taken place.”

5) Their call to (establishing) the khilaafah, and this is a bid’ah, for verily 
the Messengers and those who followed them were not commanded except with the 
call to at-Tawheed. The Most High said:

وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ رَّسُولاً أَنِ اعْبُدُواْ اللّهَ 
وَاجْتَنِبُواْ الطَّاغُوتَ

“And verily, We have sent among every Ummah a
Messenger (proclaiming): "Worship Allaah (Alone), and
avoid at-Taaghoot (all false deities and objects of worship).”

6) The non-existence of al-walaa’ wal-baraa’ amongst them or its weakness. And 
they make that clear through their da’wah to closeness between [those upon] the 
Sunnah and the Shee’ah, and the saying of their founder: “We cooperate [with 
each other] in that which we agree upon, and we excuse each other in that which 
we disagree in.”

7) Their hatred for Ahlut-Tawheed, and the people [who traverse] the path of 
Salafiyyah, and their loathing of them and they make that plain in their 
statements regarding the country of Saudi Arabia, which was established upon 
at-Tawheed, and teaches at-Tawheed in its schools and in its institutions and 
universities; and from the murder of Jameel ar-Rahmaan al-Afghaanee because he 
was calling to at-Tawheed, and he was o­ne who had schools in which he taught 

8) Their scrutiny and pursuit of the mistakes of the rulers, and searching for 
their shortcomings, whether it is true or a lie, and spreading them amongst the 
inexperienced youth so as to cause them to hate and loathe them [the rulers] 
and to fill their hearts with hostility towards them.

9) The foul disgusting hizbiyyah (blind partisanship and bigotry) which they 
ascribe to. So they support and have closeness o­n account of this hizb 
(party), and show enmity and oppose o­n account of it.

10) Taking the bay’ah (oath of allegiance) to work for the Ikhwaanee manhaj 
with the ten conditions which its founder mentioned , and there are other 
observations to be made which it is possible that we take them later.

An-Nahl (16):36
TN: These ten conditions or pillars of the bay’ah of Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen are 
mentioned in al-Banaa’s Majmoo’atur-Risaa’il (p.268), where he says: “O you 
brothers who are truthful! The pillars of our bay’ah are ten, so memorize and 
hold o­n to them:
(1) Understanding
(2) Sincerity
(3) Action
(4) al-Jihaad
(5) self-sacrifice
(6) Obedience
(7) firmness and strength
(8) Impartiality
(9) Brotherhood
(10) Trust.
