Not Everyone Who Claim To Follow Salaf, Is A Salafi

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا
And whosoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follow other than the believers way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in the hell-what and evil destination (4 : 115)

Not Everyone Who Claim To Follow Salaf, Is A Salafi

aal-hamd.gif

In present times many groups and individuals claim their adherence to the aqidah (creed) and manhaj (methodology) of Salaf, but when examined closely it gets crystal clear that they are effected with tamyee[1] or suffering from the cancer of Haddaadiyyah[2] and very few are strictly walking on the path of Salafiyyaah.

Mumayeen(those who are effected with tamyee) starts getting suffocated when the principals of jarh (criticism) are mentioned and when Ahlul Bid’ah Wal Ahwaa (people of innovation and desire) are refuted. They can’t hear the verdicts against their so called “Scholars” who are guilty of practicing Al Wala (loyalty) with deviant individuals and groups. You will see Mumayeen taking part in lectures and conferences along with individuals and groups who don’t have clarity in manhaj, trying to find excuses for them although their falsehood is as clearly visible as the mid-day sun. Mumayeen accuse Salafiyoon of being Harsh and extreme, even though if their (i.e. Salafiyoon) stand and position is based on the speeches of Scholars which is based on proofs from Qur’an, Sunnah & Ijma’ (consensus).

Mumayeen secretly or sometimes openly speak ill and warn from Salafi Scholars and Students of Knowledge who do not compromise. Furthermore, Mumayeen try to hide themselves behind those Salafi Scholars who have mistakes in their position on certain individuals and groups due to not been complete aware of them, although it is well-known principal Jarh Muffasar (detailed criticism) takes precedence over Tadeel Mujmal (general praise or recommendation). Mumayeen are also guilty of indulging in the Bid’ah of Al Muwaazanah (counterbalancing when refuting).

Ikhwanis [3], khawarij [4], Takfiri [5], Qutbis [6] Turathi [7] IRF [8] and their affiliates, Salman al-Awdah*, Safar al-Hawali*, Alee al-Halabee*, Adnan Aroor*, Muhammad al-Maghraawee*, Abu Ishaq al Huwaynee*, Muhammad Hassaan Al-Misree*, Abul Hasan Al Ma’rabi*, Abdur-Rahman Abdul-Khaliq*and their followers are affected with tamyee

As for Haddaadees (those who have cancer of Haddaadiyyah) then they practice unjustified harshness and extremism. Declaring as deviants those who are reliable and well grounded from the Scholars and students of knowledge. Performing Bara (disavowal) on the issues of fiqh and ijtihad. Lack of hikmah in Dawah, Being hasty in taking positions or issuing rulings, Crossing the limits and not returning to the scholars are some of their hallmarks. Haddaadees busy themselves in trying to find errors and slips of reliable Scholars and students of Knowledge. In our time some of the haddaadees are guilty of the most extreme form of hizbiyyah[9]”

Lastly, the Salafiyoon then by the grace of Allaah Subhaanahu Wa Taaala they are the most knowledgeable people and strictly adhere the aqidah(creed) and manhaj (methodology) of Salaf, not compromising it with Ahlul Bid’ah Wal Ahwaa. They always sticking to the major scholars and returning to them in all affairs. Not practicing unjustified harshness and extremism, merciful towards common people. Applying hikmah in Dawah and not crossing the set limits. They are free from Hizbiyyah and Hadaadiyyah. They don’t take part in lectures and conferences along with unclear individuals and groups which call towards baatil or are unknown to the Scholars. They don’t find excuses for Ahlul Bid’ah Wal Ahwaa. They are respectful towards the Scholars and students of knowledge. The perform Al Wala with Ahlul haq and Bara with Ahlul Batil. They stop where the Salaf and scholars stop.

Imaam Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullaah Ta’aala) said :

“If bid’ah only consisted of lies, then it would NOT have been accepted and everybody would even hurry to condemn it and refute it. And if it only consisted of Haqq (truth), then it would not have been a Bid’ah, rather, in agreement with the Sunnah. But it (Bid’ah) consists of both truth and lies in which the truth is clothed with lies.

He (Allaah) Ta’aala said :

وَلاَ تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ
And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it]. (al-Baqarah, ayah 42).”
[as-Sawaa´iq al-Mursalah (3/925)]

Mufaddal Ibn Muhalhal (rahimahullaah Ta’aala) said :

“If the heretic (person of bid’ah) started mentioning his bid’ah right at the beginning of the sitting, you would be on your guard and flee from him. But what he does is begin by mentioning hadeeth from the Sunnah, then, he slips his bid’ah in on you. It might then stick to your heart, but when will it leave your heart?” [Ibn Battah, Al-Ibaanah Al-Kubraa, 2:444]

Also, our father Shaykh Rabee’ bin Haadee al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) said:

“Don’t say about a man who opposes the manhaj of the Salaf that he is a ‘Salafi’ No, don’t say about a man who opposes the manhaj of the Salaf that he is a ‘Salafi’. Don’t say that a man is ‘Salafi’ until you are sure that he is upon the manhaj [of the Salaf]. He is honored by it, and calls to it. He loves and unites based upon it, and hates and separates because of it. This is a ‘Salafi’. But someone who claims that he is ‘Salafi’,’ and defends Ahlul-Bid’ah, and defends them against Ahlul-Sunnah, this is not a ‘Salafi’ whatsoever. Whoever he is – Arab or non-Arab, in the East or in the West – because Salafiyyah has special qualities.

Salafiyyah has signs. Salafiyyah has affairs that differentiate its people from others in Walaa` and Baraa`, and ‘Aqeedah and Da’wah, and the stances that they take.”

[During a phone linkup between our brothers at Masjid Ahlul-Hadeeth in Philadelphia and the Shaykh (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala), via Troid.ca and SalafiTalk.Net; http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=12331]

Shaykh Muhammad bin Ramzaan Al-Haajiree (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) said :

“What are the characteristics of the person of the Sunnah?

His ‘aqeedah (belief). His worship. His following [of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam]. His da’wah (his call), his invitation. His character, mannerisms. His transactions, his dealings with the people. This is the person of the Sunnah. His ‘aqeedah is correct, and it’s based upon following the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). His worship is like that of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). His calling or invitation is likewise (upon the Sunnah of the Prophet, (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)…” [Same link as above]

Shaykh Ahmad Al-Bazmool (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) said :

“And from the most important matters, in my view, that the Salafi youths must pay attention to, is that a person should Not be described as a Salafi because he has speech relating to an issue from the issues of Salafiyyah. (Yet at the same instance) we neither know his stance pertaining to other issues of Salafiyyah, nor do we know the methodology that he is upon. And it is possible that some of those who oppose (Salafiyyah) may agree with the Salafis (in certain matters).” [Same link as above]

Shaykh Muhammad Bazmool (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) summarized the principles of Salafiyyah into four, from which other principles stem:

1. Al-Ikhlaas
2. Following the Sunnah (taking Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as Imam in ‘Aqeedah, Manhaj, manner of worship, character)
3. Warning against bid’ah and its people
4. Sticking to the Jama’ah, and not dividing (and not revolting).

[A telelink with Masjid al-Bukhaaree in West Palm Beach, Florida, lastyearh]

lastly, even Shaykh Saalih Ibn Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah Ta’aala) stated : Not everyone who claims to be Salafi is truly Salafi. Some individuals have made this claim but they are ignorant and they don’t know the Salafi Minhaj. Some individuals have made this claim but they have actually adopted the methodology of the Khawarij, and this is displayed in their spilling of blood and causing mischief throughout the earth. Others have made this claim but they are self-taught and they have not taken knowledge from the scholars, but rather, they have taken it from books and that which they have read. They depend on their memorization of texts without (true) understanding.  Source : The Reality of the Salafi Methodology by Shaykh ‘Abdullah al Dhufari pg. 65 [ translated by brother Mustafa George]
