Shaykh ‘Allaamah Muhammad ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee regarding Shaykh Wasiullah Abbas:
Shaykh Muhammad: This question is also from Algeria, it says, some people speak ill of Shaykh Wasiullah ‘Abbas. They say that he praises Ihyaa at-Turaath. I do not know anything about Shaykh Wasiullah ‘Abbas except complete goodness. I do not know anything about him except complete goodness. He is a Salafee, a Sunni and an Atharee and the fact that he has fallen into an error, then he can fall into error, as well as other than him, I can also fall into error. As for him praising Ihyaa at-Turaath, then I do not know about this, and I do not think that (would have been said) by Shaykh Wasiullah ‘Abbas and if he has praised them then I do not think that he knows ihyaa at-Turaath. As for Shaykh Wasiullah, then he is a Salafee.
