Asalaam Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuh

To the Honorable Brothers:

It has come to our attention what you have written regarding this matter (Majdy Wardah), and this is our story.

We were delighted when we heard the shaykh’s first khutbah, and it was a turning point in our lives.   We became overjoyed as we began to know and get closer to the shaykh.  We were even happier when we began to have private lessons with him every week, but we did not know what was behind all these of actions and events.

The mimbar (pulpit) that he would stand on was what gave him a trustworthy reputation.  All of us wanted to earn status with him.  However, he (Majdy Wardah) used to ask each one of us separately and privately for a sum of money without the others' knowledge.  He made Allaah his witness that he was in a rush and in a very tight situation and that an instant solution was required.

The love for Allaah’s sake was what made the brothers not hesitate to help solve his problems quickly.  When he traveled to Egypt, he requested a sum of money from one of the brothers.  In addition, he (Majdy Wardah) requested from another brother approximately $200,000 (two hundred thousand US dollars).  This brother worked hard to collect the amount.  When one of his (Majdy Wardah’s) old victims heard about this, he warned the brother directly.

All of us became angry and attacked that person for what he did.  In response, all of the old victims brought checks that he (Majdy Wardah) had written, which had insufficient funds in the bank account.  Majdy Wardah had done the same thing (i.e. given worthless checks) to the new victims.   After these endeavors, the truth was uncovered, and the picture was made clear as you have been told by others.

It is important to note that the shaykh has knowledge that no one from the common people or people of knowledge can deny.  I ask Allaah that He allows him (Majdy Wardah) to repent and makes his knowledge evidence for him and not against him.

I swear by Allaah that I love him (Majdy Wardah) from the bottom of my heart, and I used to put him before my family and myself.  However, as Prophet Muhammad ( ) said, “A person in debt tells lies whenever he speaks and breaks promises whenever he makes (them).”
