Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree was asked (8th Jumadah al-Aakhirah 1428H):
Walid Basyouni and Tawfique Chowdhury
Both of these are Ikhwanis and historically they were upon the path of the Qutbi, Ikhwani Ali al-Timimi - a fanatical supporter and defender of the innovator Abd al-Rahman Abd al-Khaliq (who innovated tafarruq in the Ummah as a legislative principle, pushed the innovated fourth category of al-Haakimiyyah in Tawhid). In the year 2000, in Detroit, Walid Basyouni described the refutations against Sayyid Qutb and Hasan al-Banna and the Ikhwan in general (found on the SalafiPublications.Com website) as (كلام فارغ), "empty speech." As for Tawfique Chowdhury he is on a similar path ever since he got put to trial by Ali al-Timimi and his likes towards the end of the 90s. He was also a signatory to that infamous pledge with the Jahmiyyah and Qubooriyyah a number of years ago. These are callers to misguidance, they do not connect the youth to the Scholars in truth and they push forward their own opinions and views in grave and serious matters, and listing aspects of their misguidance would require separate articles. One should note that Tawfique Chowdhury has been invited to Green Lane Mosque (then Markaz Jam'iat Ahl al-Hadeeth) previously, many long years ago, at a time when the Salafis were warning against him as an Ikhwani.
We advise the Muslims at large to avoid this gathering so as to protect their ears, hearts and minds from listening to these people for they will disease the hearts with their shubuhaat. Further, we advise the Muslims to take caution from the Green Lane Mosque for they put people to trial in their deen and they are part and parcel of this new network of groups and organizations who are turning da'wah into entertainment. Historically, they have been affiliated with the Jam'iyyah Ihyaa al-Turath al-Islami of Kuwait, an Ikhwani organization that uses deception, showing a face of Salafiyyah outwardly, whilst operating and pushing the methodologies of Ikhwan in reality.
