Ali then said:
"However, this group insisted that their teachings were supported by the major scholars of the day and that their teachings was in the end the pure doctrine of Ahl as-Sunna."
[To which Abu Khadijah replies]
"My response: Not only supported by the major scholars of today but also by the creed and methodology of the Salaf."
Then bring your proofs if you are truthful. There is no evidence that any of the major scholars support any of your views. Just the opposite. All you have are just general statements of praise of Rabi ibn Hadi by which you take and interpret that it means full support of all what they say.
Yet in reality, those who have studied Sh. Rabi in detail like Bakr Abu Zaid and Ibn Jibreen have both refuted him. Besides, answer the following question, if Rabi was such a great scholar then why was he never placed on Hay'a Kibar al-Ulama'? Why was he virtually unknown, even in Saudi Arabia, until after the Gulf War when he began attacking the mashaykh? Why is it that today his books are not sold in any of the major book stores of Makkah and Medinah? Why is it that his own students, like ad-Dawish, have turned against him? He was manipulated by the state and has now been cast aside. And I guarantee you that it will be a simple matter of a time when his da'wa will be forgotten once and for all.
