Salafi Mufti (bin Baz) accuses Sahabi of shirk!

The late grand mufti of Saudi Arabia and one of the putative figureheads of the psuedo-Salafi movement, comments upon a Hadith in his annotation on Fath al-Bari (a commentary on Sahih al-Bukhari), accusing a Sahabi of Shirk!

Maulana Usman Iqbal details the famous narration of Malik al-Dar and how the late grand mufti takes issue with it, projecting his understanding of shirk over the understanding of a senior sahabi, Sayyiduna Umar ibn al-Khattab. It is known that the pseudo-salafis have a habit of launching accusations of shirk on individuals for practices that do not align with their narrow understanding however it ought to be known to what extent their scholars have gone to in order to see why the followers behave the way they do.

The detailed research article, mentioned by Maulana Usman Iqbal, which thoroughly addresses any contentions upon the narration is titled "The Blazing Star in Defence of a Narration from Malik al-Dar" written by Shaykh Dr. Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed of which can be found here:
