    Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh..

    I know he is an african-american convert, I´ve seen him on youtube..
    But what are his views? Is he soft, does he think jihad is fard or like other most african-american converts - he believes the saudi king is our ruler??
    And what about Abu Taubah?

    Because I like their speeches, but I dont wanna listen to madkhalis and whatever..

    Barakallahu fikoum..

    So he´s a madkhali?
    Great, another one.. Just what we needed..

    What about Abu Taubah? He seems reasonable enough..

    I haven't listened to much of his lectures and dont know his views, may Allah free him, Aaameeen.

    The madkhalis down the road at Wright St certainly dont consider him to be a madhkhali.

    He is an Imam at Green Lane Masjid which is Ahle Hadith. An interesting character. Cant help but take digs at Hanafis and Pakistanis every so often.

    He is a Madkhali that has reinvented himself for the UK market, after being thrown off the manhaaj in the USA. He has a lot of skeletons in his closet from his time in America, if people knew half the stuff the wouldn't sit in the same room as him.

    Yes akhi that much is clear and the article itself states as much, I just thought it'd be interesting to note that the local paper has decided to bring this accusation/rumour which has been doing the rounds for a very long time into the wider public domain. I am not making an accusation of adultery against Abu Usama.

    He's not madkhali in the sense of Jarh/Ta'dil /refuting / following Shaykh Rabee.

    He's madkhali in his stance towards Salafi fiqh madhahib, and Jihad...

    I do find benefits in some of his lectures, and from my understanding of aqeedah, he is to be of sound aqeedah..

    There is a chap from birmingham by that name, all accept the sheikh part, unless you mean: sheikh your booty for ahle hadis in defence of usama Hasan or Shiek kebab which is served by suhaib Hasan with a side of shahi sheikh kebab shalon and roti
