I pray that we all stay out of such talks and gossip with these types of people. We learn from the Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) to show forgiveness, compassion, and most importantly patience for Allah (SWT). Engaging in these types of conversations will do nothing for our faith and our growth for Him. They can do nothing for us on the day of judgement and Allah SWT is sufficient for us in this life and in the next.
Now I know it hurts many of you to hear this type of talk about Abdullah and his work, but truth is...Abdullah has asked nothing from it, but to help us learn the truth about many things and to draw closer to Allah SWT. Abdullah is our dear brother and friend and we will defend him if it is necessary, but not against baseless gossip, because I don't believe he would even want us to engage in that.
Truth is, people can believe what they want, and study what they want, and do what they want for Allah (SWT) and He is all-knowing and knows what is in our hearts and what is in our thoughts, and what is in our actions and most importantly our souls.
In my personal opinion, there is not one opinion of another that I value, other than seeking the pleasure of Allah SWT and the wisdom and teachings that He has left for us....getting involved in such things will only take us away from what's most important and in my opinion goes against what the Ahlul Bayt A.S. taught us, and the way they lived.
So many oppressors attacked the Ahlul Bayt A.S. and how often are reminded of how they sought forgiveness for them, or how they offered many things for them, and they (A.S.) were patient for Allah SWT and hard-striving.
And not once have I heard anything from Imam Ahmad al-Hassan (A.S.) other than calling us to Allah (SWT) and to Truth. There is no doubt that many will label him and his followers terrible things, as I'm sure many label us many things, but who do we really seek to please in this life and the next? If it is the opinions of others and their acceptance, I pray that you step back and ask which is most important...the love of another creation or the love of the Creator.
Just follow your hearts and not the opinions and attacks of other men, Insha'Allah He will continue guiding and protecting us, and may He make the Yamani (A.S.) capable in this earth and hasten the reappearance of al-Mahdi (A.S.) and the Messiah (A.S.) and establish Truth and Justice in this earth, and let us die among the faithful, Insha'Allah.
Fi Aman Allah
For those who fear Allah, He prepares a way out and He provides for him from sources he could never expect. And if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is Allah for him, for surely Allah will accomplish his purpose; verily for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion.
