Maliki scholar Imam as-Sawi confirms the Wahhabis are Khawarij

Imam Ahmad bin Muhammad as-Sawi al-Maliki who died in the year 1241 AH(1825AD over 170 years ago) in his book “Hashiat al-Allamah as-Sawi” which is part of the interpretation of Al-Qur’an “Tafsir al-Jalalayn”, in his tafsir to the ayah [35:6], says:

“This Ayah was revealed about the Khawaarij who misinterpret the Qur’an and Hadeeth, legitimising the killing and confiscating the property of other Muslims (under the impression that they are mushriks and upon kufr). As it is seen now, the equal, who are a group in the land of al-Hijaaz (its a region in the west of present-day Saudi Arabia) called ‘al-Wahaabiyyah’, who think they are following the truth but they are liars whom which the Shaytaan overwhelmed and made them forget the dhikr of Allah. They are the followers of Shaytaan (Hizbush Shaytaan). Surely the followers of Shaytaan are the losers and we ask Allah, the all generous, to amputate their origin.”
