To Know why Bid`ah (innovation) is the most dangerous thing ever , please click here :

Ibn Sa’d relayed in his Tabaqat, vol.6, p.280 that: ’Abdul Hameed bin ‘Abdur-Rahman al-Himani informed us: from Abu Haneefah from Hammad who said: ‘I informed Ibraheem of the death of al-Hajjaj. He made sujud and then I saw him cry out of happiness.’ Imaam adh-Dhahabi also mentions the report in Siyar, vol.4, p.542.

Salamah Bin Shubaib (rahimahullaah) said, ‘’I was once with Abdur-Razzaaq As-San’aanee (rahimahullaah), then (news) of the death of Abdul Majeed reached us; so he said, ‘’All praise is due to Allaah, who relieved the Ummah of Muhammad [sallal-laahu-alayhi-sallam] of Abdul Majeed Ibn Abdil Azeez . [Ref: siyar a’laam an-nubulaa 9/435]

This Abdul Majeed Ibn Abdil Azeez Ibn Abee Ruwaad was a figurehead of Ir’jaa.

  ‘Ubaydullah bin ‘Abdullaah bin al-Husayn, Abu’l-Qasim al-Khaffaf, well-known as Ibn an-Naqeeb. Ibn Katheer mentioned him in al-Bidayah wa’n-Nihayah, vol.12, p20 saying: ‘He was from the Imaams of the Sunnah, and when the news of the death of Ibn al-Mu’allim, a Shi’a faqeeh, reached him he made Sujud ush-Shukr to Allaah. Then he sat for a while and said: ‘’I do not care for any time I die after witnessing the death of Ibn al-Mu’allim.’’’
  Imaam adh-Dhahabi stated in al-‘Ibar fi Khabr man Ghabar, vol.2, p42 when discussing the events of the year 332 AH: ’The caravans did not perform Hajj due to the death of the Qaramitah leader, the tyrant, Abu Tahir Sulaiman bin Abi  Sa’id al-Jannabi. Who died in Ramadhan in Hajar (Bahrain) because of a smallpox infection that killed him. May Allaah not have mercy on his body even the size of a needle’s point.’
Note: Abu Tahir al-Janabi was from the heretical Qaramitah who attacked the Ka’bah in 929 CE. Al-Janabi ordered his troops to kill pilgrims and dump their bodies into Zamzam Well. Al-Janabi then tore off the door of the Ka’bah and took the Black stone and took it to the region of al-Ahsa in Arabia. They kept it for twenty years until the Fatimid Shi’ites ordered Qaramitah to return it to the Ka’bah.
  When the news of the death of the deviant Bishr al-Marisi was announced in the market, the people exclaimed: ‘If this was not a place of publicity it would be a place of prostration and giving thanks to Allaah! All praise is due to Allaah who brought about his death….’ Relayed in Tarikh Baghdad, vol.7, p.66 and Lisan ul-Mizan, vol.2, p.308.
  It was said to Imaam Ahmed ibn Hanbal: Is a man sinful for being joyous with what has happened to Ibn Abi Du’ad?’ (Ibn Abi Du’ad had been paralysed after suffering a stroke) – Imaam Ahmed replied: ‘’who is not joyous with what has happened to him?!’’ Al-Khallal, as-Sunnah, vol.5, p.121.
  When the news of the death of Wahb al-Qurashi, a deviant and head of misguidance, reached ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Mahdi, he said: ‘’All praise is due to Allaah who has brought ease to the Muslims from him.’’ Ibn Hajar, Lisan ul-Mizan, vol.8, p.402.
  Al-Hafidh Ibn Kathir stated about one of the heads of misguidance and innovation in al-Bidayah wa’n-Nihayah, vol.12, p.338:’Allaah brought ease to the Muslims with his death in Dhu’l-Hijjah. He was buried in his home and then transported to the cemetery of Quraysh, unto Allaah is all praise and favour. When he died Ahl-us-Sunnah were so happy and joyous, and they manifested their thanks to Allaah. None of Ahl us-Sunnah could be found except that they were praising Allaah.’’

The Sadness of the Salaf upon hearing the death of a scholar of Sunnah

1) It is reported that Imâm Ayyûb [Al-Sakhtiyânî] – Allâh have mercy on him – said, “When I hear of the death of a man from Ahl Al-Sunnah, it is as if I have lost a part of my body.”

[Al-Lâlakâ`î, Sharh Usûl I’tiqâd Ahl Al-Sunnah wa Al-Jamâ’ah, Vol.1 p46.]

2) It is reported that Hammâd b. Zayd said, “When the news of the death of a young man from the followers of hadîth reached Ayyûb, [the sorrow] could be seen on him; and when the news of the death of a man who was mentioned as being a devout wor­ shipper would reach him, [it’s effect] on him was not noticed (that much).” [1]

[Al-Lâlakâ`î, Sharh Usûl I’tiqâd Ahl Al-Sunnah wa Al-Jamâ’ah, Vol.1 p51.]

[1] Reason being :

Shaikh al-Islaam, Ibn Taymyyah رحمه الله said:

“It was said to Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal: ‘A person who fasts, offers the prayers, and does I`tikaaf (seclusion in the Masjid) more beloved to you or the one who speaks against the Ahl al-Bid`ah?’ He (Imaam Ahmad) said: ‘If he stands (in the night), prays and does I`tikaaf, then these are all for himself. But when he speaks against the Ahl al-Bid`ah, then this is for (the welfare of) the Muslims and this is better.’

(Ibn Taymiyyah continues): So he (Imaam Ahmad) has made it clear that this benefits all the Muslims in general regarding their Deen, similar in nature to Jihaad in the Cause of Allaah.”

[Majmoo` al-Fataawa (28/231-232)]

Shaykhul-lslaam Ibn Taymiyyah - rahimahullaah - said: "Refuting ahlul-bida' (the innovators) is a Jihaad, to the extent that Yahyaa ibn Yahyaa (d.226H) said: "Defence of the Sunnah is more excellent than Jihaad in the path of Allaah.(1,2) [1. Siyar A'laamun-Nubalaa (1015 18)2. Naqdul-Mantaq wal Kalaam(p.12)]

3) It is also reported that Hammâd b.Zayd said, “I was with Ayyûb Al-Sakhtiyânî while he was washing [the body] of Shu’ayb b. Al-Habhâb, saying, ‘Anyone who wishes for the
death of a person from Ahl Al-Sunnah has wished for the light of Allâh to be extinguished; but Allâh will keep His
light complete, even though the un­believers may hate it.’ [Sûrah Al-Saff: 8]”

[Al-Lâlakâ`î, Sharh Usûl I’tiqâd Ahl Al- Sunnah wa Al-Jamâ’ah, Vol.1 p52.]

4) It is reported that Asad b. Mûsâ said,“We were with Sufyân b. ‘Uyainah when he was informed of the death of  Al-Darâwardî, and he became visi­bly distressed.  [Al-Darâwardî] hadn’t actually died, so we said, ‘We didn’t
think you would reach such a state.’ He said, ‘[Al-Darâwardî] is from Ahl Al-Sunnah.’”

[Al-Lâlakâ`î, Sharh Usûl I’tiqâd Ahl Al-Sunnah wa Al-Jamâ’ah, Vol.1 p72.]
