Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allāh
have mercy on him) said:
” ﺇﻥ ﺍﻟﺸﺮﻙ ، ﻭﺍﻟﻘﻮﻝ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺑﻐﻴﺮ ﻋﻠﻢ ، ﻭﺍﻟﺒﻐﻲ
ﻭﺍﻟﻔﻮﺍﺣﺶ ﻣﺎ ﻇﻬﺮ ﻣﻨﻬﺎ ﻭﻣﺎ ﺑﻄﻦ ، ﻭﺍﻟﻈﻠﻢ ، ﻻ ﻳﻜﻮﻥ
ﻓﻴﻬﺎ ﺷﻴﺌﺎ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﻤﺼﻠﺤﺔ.”
“Indeed the Shirk, and speaking about Allāh
without knowledge, and the rebellion
(against Allāh), and the lewd deeds from the
hidden and apparent, and the oppression,
there can NOT be in these things any
*maslahah* (benefit).”
[Majmū al-Fatāwā 14/476]
