Are There Lies Beyond Lying?

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and prayers and peace be upon the master of the Messengers, the honest and trustworthy, who said, as narrated in Bukhari on the authority of Mansur from Abu Wa’il on the authority of Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, on the authority of the Prophet ﷺ that he ﷺ said: «إِنَّ الصِّدْقَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْبِرِّ وَإِنَّ الْبِرَّ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ، وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَصْدُقُ حَتَّى يَكُونَ صِدِّيقاً، وَإِنَّ الْكَذِبَ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْفُجُورِ وَإِنَّ الْفُجُورَ يَهْدِي إِلَى النَّارِ، وَإِنَّ الرَّجُلَ لَيَكْذِبُ حَتَّى يُكْتَبَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ كَذَّاباً» “Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to Al-Fajur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajur (wickedness) leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar.”

1- Abu Iyas, who was punished with Ihmaal Tamm (complete disregard with the circulation of the punishment), has continued to publish on his page fabricated articles ascribed to me and in my name; all they include are nothing but lies and fabrication. Either due to ascribing them to me, or due to their content. When Abu Iyas was asked who is Abdullah Abdullah, he said to them: “He is Abu Al-Waleed”, and this is a lie and slander. I issued a video and audio recording on February 11, 2020 in which I confirmed that everything that was published by Abdullah Abdullah, who assumed my name, was a lie and slander.

2- After I issued the previous recording, Abu Iyas published an article on his page, signed with my name explicitly, so one of my friends contacted me and asked me about the validity of this article, so I denied my knowledge of it, and said that I did not publish such false articles. So he went to visit Abu Iyas, and said to him: “I asked Abu Al-Waleed about the article that you published on your page in his name, and Abu Al-Waleed told me that he has no knowledge of this article and that he did not publish it.” but  Abu Iyas insisted that this article is really from Abu Al-Waleed, and that he (Abu Iyas) communicates with Abu Al-Waleed daily. Note that I did not contact him neither verbally nor in writing for more than seven years. Are there lies beyond lying?

Accordingly, all of these articles that were published and signed in the name of Abdullah Abdullah or in the name of Abdul Halim Zalloum are false and slander against me, and I have nothing to do with them, neither from near nor from far, and all their contents of the information and attacks on the party and its leadership and some of its members are all fabricated and untrue. I complain about Abu Iyas and his clique and those behind him to Al-Muntaqim Al-Jabbar (the Mighty Vengeful) Allah. If we do not take our right from them in this world, we will take it from Allah (swt) on the Day of Resurrection when the opponents meet.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدَافِعُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ خَوَّانٍ كَفُورٍ

“Indeed, Allah defends those who have believed. Indeed, Allah does not like everyone treacherous and ungrateful.” [Al-Hajj: 38]
