Beware of Self Delusion (al Ghuroor)
[09/08 1:18 am] Whatsapp Rabee Almaqaalih:
من مجالس شيخنا ربيع العامرة بالنصح والتوجيه
كنت عنده يوم الأربعاء بتاريخ ٢١|٤|١٤٣٣ من هجرة
نبينا محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم.
وكان يتكلم على الغرور ويذمه ثم ذكر :
《 عبد الله القصيمي 》
قال : كان رجلا ذكيا جدا له كتابات قوية لو ثبت يمكن يمثل شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية في هذا العصر !
لكنه ( الغرور ) الذي أضله ، فيه غرور شديد ، والله كنت أقرأ له والتمس الغرور في بعض كتاباته .
ولما نصحه بعض العلماء تكبر للغرور الذي فيه وارتد عن الدين .انتهى
كتبه : أبو حسان سمير القيسي
From the sittings of Shaykh Rabee full of advice and guidance:
“I was with the shaykh on Wednesday 21/4/1433 AH and he was speaking about self delusion. He was dispraising it and he then made mention of “Abdullah Al-Qaseemi”.
Shaykh Rabee said
“This was an extremely intelligent man who had powerful writings. Had he remained firm, he could well have been like the Shaykh ul Islam ibn Taymiyyah of our times! However, self delusion _(alghuroor)_ is what caused him to stray. He was severely deluded by himself. By Allah, I would read his books and sense self delusion in some of his writings.
When some of the scholars advised him, he became haughty due to that very same delusion that he had (about himself) and thereafter he apostated and left the Religion.”

I, Nadeem Ahsan-Shah received this from brother Rabee Al-Maqaalih of Madinah (via a whatsapp group) who confirmed to me that he heard this directly from brother Hassaan Sameer Al-Qaysee.

May Allah keep us firm upon His Deen and protect us from feeling safe from the Hell-Fire.
