The Sufis have recently translated the book “notions that must be
corrected” (Mafahim yajibu an tusahhaha) of Muhammad ibn ‘Alawi
Al-Maliki into English, and it was important for Ahlus Sunnah to refute
its falsehood and point out the weak narrations contained in it.
The best refutaition of “Notions tahat must be corrected” to date was
written by Shaykh Salih Aas Shaykh in his book “These are our notions”
(Hazihi Mafahimuna); and the Shaykh obliterated in it the doubts brought
forward by Muhammad ibn ‘Alawi Al-Maliki and exposed his lies and
deception. May Allah reward the shaykh abundantly for this !
The present work is the translation of the first half of the book “These
are our notions” (128 pages out of 240). The first two chapters on
Tawassul and Tawheed have been translated in this first volume, and the
remainding chapters on Shafa’ah, Takfeer, Tabarruk, and meaning of
Salafiyah will Insh’Allah be published in a second volume.
