DA’WAH MAN – 5 Reason Why Yasir Qadhi Is WRONG

In the past I’ve not been not the biggest fan of Imran ibn Mansur, aka Dawah Man. Though I respect the work he does in the field of Dawah and the popularity he has brought to this field of endeavour in our deen among the youth, still his style of delivery just always grated on my nerves for some reason.

However last night I watched his video “5 Reason Why Yasir Qadhi is WRONG” and almost right the way up to the end I couldn’t fault it.

It’s like he’s grown up in matters of the deen and it’s been obvious over the past few months he has been on his own journey of development studying with serious yet accessible students of knowledge in the UK like Abdur Rahman Hassan and Ustadh Abu Taymiyyah and it tells from his character and his speech, and not just in his increasingly lengthening beard and changed mannerisms.

Gone is the young man bouncing across our screens in the backwards baseball cap, and instead all that energy, all that passion is devoted to the deen of Allaah in a manner more befitting an Islamic speaker, a Da’ee.

I had hoped he could bring his fan-base on a similar journey, but clearly not all of them wanted to move, and instead I logged on and found comments from the ‘please to refrain’ crowd who used to share and promote his previous videos, but they are now mocking him saying such things as ‘from Dawah man to waste man’ and other such insults and slanders.

This is because in this latest video he has spoken about one of the biggest fitnahs in our age, which is the attempt to reform, or deform the teachings of Islam and in doing so quite rightfully spoken about the errors of a man who calls towards this methodology, Yasir Qadhi, the spokesman and scholar for some of those wanting a reformed Islam in the West.

Even if you don’t agree with Imran in anything he says, do not mock when he is only attempting to call people to a more serious take on the teachings of Islam when Allaah has stated in the Quran:

“If you ask them (about this), they declare: ‘We were only talking idly and joking.’ Say: ‘Was it at Allaah, and His Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger that you were mocking?’

Make no excuse; you disbelieved after you had believed…”

Quran translation, Surah al-Tawbah, 9:65-66

Some will say, who is Imran ibn Mansur to refute Yasir Qadhi? A better question would be who is Yasir Qadhi to attempt to push people away from the scholars and to reform Islam?

But regarding Imran ibn Mansur, he’s a geniune brother, trying to call others towards the deen of Allaah, a da’ee, and his words carry weight with many people, tens or perhaps even hundreds of thousands among the youth. As he has himself has called towards people following Yasir Qadhi in the past so he is required to now clarify his stance and correct it.

Ustadh Abu Taymiyyah said in his own promotion of this video: “Should we just give a blind eye to those who are misguiding?”

I would urge you all to watch the video all the way through, he is making some serious weighty points regarding the way Yasir Qadhi has changed over the years and I agree with him 100% regarding the need for people to know about the fitnah Yasir Qadhi is causing among the masses of the Muslims and why he needs to rectify his affairs.

May Allaah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala guide and rectify us all, forgive our mistakes and bring us back to the correct methodology of following His deen, ameen

  1. The video was misrepresentation of shaykh Yasir Qadir’s views. This brother should have sought clarification with sh.Yasir Qadhi..lot of misconception would have been cleared – this is the path of justice. Dawah man is not taking any comments of those who disagreed with him. How injustice is this!

    1. Assalaamu Alaykum Faz,

      And likewise Yasir Qadhi (or more likely the admin team he uses) delete most comments critical of their Sheikh, just like they shut down and delete comments and debate on MM as well when things go against them.

      As I understand many people have sought clarification from Yasir Qadhi over the years, he has never been a person known for responding or allowing criticism to stand.

      I’m not myself looking for a debate, and I’ve deleted most of the long comments you made here, if you wish to post a single link, saying all of those points for others to read then please do so and will allow that as long as doesn’t sink into the name calling and mud slinging which I’ve seen directed at Imran ibn Mansur past few weeks and instead just sticks to polite criticism of his comments.

  2. Imran made some VALID points but also made some gross misrepresentations on Sheikh Yasir Qadhi’s views, who would be the first person to hold his hands up if he made a mistake as he has done previously. Moreover, Yasir Qadhi whether some like it or not is a scholar and should have been privately consulted before being criticised publicly. There are a lot of objectionable things in Imran Ibn Mansurs previous content that can also be criticised. Regardless of who is right or wrong, it is sad that in a time when Islam is currently facing one of the most severest attack given the recent climate externally, that we are ourselves are embroiled with internal conflict with one sheikh launching attacks and ego wars against another.

    1. I agree. has Imran tried to give advice to Yasser privately first? And if he did, did he mention that in his video? No. I do not think this the correct way to give “nasihah” in Islam, especially between well-known callers to Islam because it will cause fitnah among common people and they will lose trust in everyone.

      1. Imraan and other brothers have approached Yasir Qadhi and others like him on different occasions, in person and through online discussions.

        Muslimmatters, a website run by him and his followers they are notorious for just deleting any commentary which disagrees with the narrative they are trying to promote.

        In the end if someone is a well known speaker, yes they deserve the benefit of the doubt just like everyone else but if their words are wrong, or even dangerous then it is required that their remarks are discussed, clarified and if necessary rebuked.

  3. If you don’t know Quran or Sunnah then it is easy to be misguided. This is why muslims are required to seek knowledge. I may ponder why some things are the way they are but I have not doubted and not come to an understanding at some point in time. When I did doubt Islam I left but came back when I came to a new understanding. I did not doubt and try to change the religion. As we have lost much of our true ummah and found ourselves scattered among the Earth we have begun to start to adopt the views of kaffirs. If anyone thinks Allah’s final words needs to change then they are on wrong guidance. They put pleasing non muslims before pleasing Allah. It’s sad that people are so scared of not having the approval of others that they will be willing to change a gift from Allah! It is literally an instruction manual on how to reach Jannah but we are willing to compromise. How weak minded our ummah has become.
