Ibn Taymiyyah obliterates the argument of Ahlul-Bid’ah who claim they save the sinners!

Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728) said: “Some of them used to say: “We have made the people repent!” I asked them: “From what?” They responded: “From highway robbery and theft and so on.” So I told them: “Their state before you making them repent was better than after you making them repent because before they were sinners who believed what they were doing was forbidden – and they hoped for the Mercy of Allaah, and they would repent to Allaah or at least have the intention to repent! And now through this “tawbah” of yours, you have misguided them and made them into people who commit shirk, exiting the Islamic Sharee’ah, such that they love what Allaah hates and they hate what Allaah loves… And I made clear that these innovations that they and others are upon are worse than sins.” (Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 20/103) And this is our argument against the khawaarij and others who recruit sinful Muslims into their sects under the guise, “They are no longer sinners.” So we respond with the response of Ibn Taymiyyah: “Their state before you making them repent was better than after you making them repent because before they were sinners who believed what they were doing was forbidden!” And now they believe the evil they perpetrate is sanctioned by Islam!
