About the book

The Lamp of Man­kind and the Illumination of Darkness: Refutation of the Fallacies of the Najdi Innovator by which He Has Led Astray the Common People), one of the earliest rebuttals of the Wahhabi sect, written in 1216H/1801CE by the Shafi`i scholar Habib Alawi b. Ahmad al-Haddad of Tarim (Yemen), 


Fatwas and Books on the Wahhabiyya

From the book : When we travelled from Hadramawt to ‘Amman recently we met with trustworthy sources who related to us the news of certain gross innovations that originated with the Najdi man [Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab (1114/1703-1206/1792)] whose seat is in Dar‘iyya.

At that time we replied to the questions that were put to us concerning him in a book which we titled al-Sayf al-Batir li ‘Unuq al-Munkir ‘ala al-Akabir (“The Sharp Sword on the Neck of the Assailant of the Elders”).3

I saw a refutation in four chapters authored by one or more of the scholars of knowledge, which I decided to follow up with thirteen more chapters, the final text making up seventeen chapters.

It formed a lavish book which named Misbah al-Anam wa Jala’ al-Zalam fi Radd Shubah al-Bid‘i al-Najdi al-Lati Adalla biha al-‘Awamm (“The Lamp of Mankind and the Illumination of Darkness: Refutation of the Insinuations of the Najdi Innovator through which He Has Led Astray the Common People”).

I ask Allah that He benefit all Muslims through this book and that He make my compilation of the sayings and works of the Ulema a labor of sincerity undertaken for Him alone. I did not do anything more than compile. However, I did not see, at the time of writing this or before it, any book-length work dedicated to refuting this innovator from Najd. I did hear of books composed against him and against the commentary of some epistles he authored. Among those who refuted
