Question: Did the Wahabis exist in the time of the Khulafa al-Rashidin?

Answer: It was this very sect that Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ requested permission from Amir al-Mu‘minin Sayyidina “Ali al-Murtadah رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ to confront. They were 10,000 in number. Amir al-Mu’minin رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ granted him permission and he went to them and asked, “What was it about Amir al Mu‘minin that you so strongly disagree with?” They replied, “Why did the Amir appoint Sayyiduna Abu Musa Ash‘ari رضی اللہ تعالٰی عنہ as a judge (Hakam) In the event of Siffin?” This is Shirk, because Allah عزوجل states in the Qur’an:

“The Believer should adapt himself to the Sunnah and to the Jama’ah. The Sunnah is the way shown by Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم. The Jama’ah is composed of the things done unanimously by the Sahaba al-Kiram who lived in the time of the four caliphs called Khulafa’ ar-Rashidin (and others in their path). A Muslim must prevent the multiplication of the men of bid’ah and keep away from them, and should not greet them (as given in many Hadith on this issue). Ahmad ibn Hanbal (Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu), the Imam of our Madhhab, said that greeting a man of bid’ah meant loving him since it had been declared in a Hadith, ‘Disseminate (your) greeting (salaam)! Love one another in this way!” He also said (pg. 143): “The title, Ahlus-Sunnah, which the innovators have expressed for themselves is not appropriate for them”.
