Rabi’ al-Madkhali was once a hardcore Qutubi-Ikhwani. The first edition of his work Manhaj al-Anbiya fi al-Da’wa ila Allah (Methodology of the Prophets in calling to Allah) was forwarded by none other than Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahman ‘Abd al-Khaliq, his former friend and ally.
In the first edition of the book (Dar al-Salafiyya, 1st edition, Kuwait), Rabi’ al-Madkhali says,
رحم الله سيد قطب، لقد نفذ من دراسته إلى عين الحق والصواب، ويجب على الحركات الإسلامية أن تستفيد من هذا التقرير الواعي الذي انتهى إليه سيد قطب عند آخر لحظة من حياته بعد دراسة طويلة واعية، لقد وصل في تقريره هذا إلى عين منهج الأنبياء عليهم الصلاة والسلام
May Allah be merciful with Sayyid Qutb! He reached the exact truth in his study. It is incumbent upon the Islamic movements to benefit from this knowledge-based conclusion which Sayyid Qutb reached towards the end of his life, after a long and deep study. In this conclusion he highlighted the very Manhaj of the prophets – may Allah’s Salah and Salam be upon them! (p. 139)
Rabi’ al-Madkhali, the conceited innovator whom the devil has mislead and blinded, in one of his private sessions (apart from attacking Ibn Baz) attacked one of the most senior and world renowned scholars, Shaykh ‘Abdullah b. Jibrin – may Allah be merciful with him.
Due to Shaykh Ibn Jibrin’s defence of Islam and its heroes such as the martyr of Islam, Sayyid Qutb – may Allah have mercy on him – Rabi’ al-Madkhali couldn’t contain his anger and in a fit of rage he said the following words regarding the great scholar, Shaykh Abdullah b. Jibrin:
ليس بعالم ، ضيع دينه وإسلامه ، يحارب بالأقمار الصناعية ، لا يصنف في السلفيين ولا العلماء
“He is not a scholar! He has lost his religion and his Islam! He wages war (against Islam) using satellite dishes. He is neither to be counted amongst the Salafis, nor the scholars!”
