The Speech of Shaykh Muqbil (rahimahullah) about Abul-A’la Al-Mawdoodee – Taken from his book ‘Nasaaih Wa Fadaaih’ 
An Exclusive Translation for Sisters Upon Al-Istiqaamah
Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Haadi (rahimahullah) was asked:
‘Is Abul-A’la Al-Mawdoodee considered to be from the Imaams of the Muslims?’
So the Shaykh replied:
‘That which is apparent, is that he had something from Shi'ism with him and he is considered to be from the Imaams of innovations. And may Allah reward one of the brothers with good, for he has authored a book entitled Zawaabi’ Fee Wajhis-Sunnah (Storms in the face of the Sunnah) and he has clarified the state of Abul-A’la Al-Mawdoodee and other than him from those who attack the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alaihi wa ‘alaa aalihi wa sallam) and their weakening of authentic ahaadeeth in the two Saheehs because of (their) desires.’
