الدعوة السلفيه عقيدة ومنهج علي فهم السلف الصالح

Ahlus Sunnah follow the Salaf us-Saalih

with one comment

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said [1]:

“The Salaf are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah, and this description cannot be true for anyone else other than them. So how can those who oppose the Sunnah be called Ahlus-Sunnah, this is not possible. How is it possible to say Ahlus-Sunnah are of three differing groups, but we say that they are in agreement? So where is the agreement and consensus?

Rather, Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah are those who hold on to what the Prophet (swallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions were upon, and to the aqeedah of the Salaf, until the Day of Judgement — and they are the Salafees.”

[Source: Sharh ‘Aqeedatil ’Waasitiyyah, 1/123]

Imaam as-Saaboonee said about Ahlus-Sunnah, “They follow the Salafus-Saalih, the Imaams and the Scholars of the Muslims, and they cling to the firm deen that they clung to and to the clear truth. And they hate Ahul-Bid’ah (the People of Innovation) who innovate into the Deen that which is not from it. They do not love them and they do not keep company with them. They do not listen to their sayings, nor sit with them, nor argue with them about the Deen, nor debate with them. Rather, they protect their ears from hearing their futility; things, which if they pass through the ears and settle in the hearts, will cause harm and cause doubts and wicked ideas to appear. And concerning this Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, sent down:

“And when you see people engaged in vain discourse about Our Signs, then turn away from them unless they turn to a different theme.” [Soorah al-An’aam (6):68] “

[1] The Shaykh said this in reply to the claim that Ahlus-Sunnah are three groups: the Salafees, the Ash’arees and the Maatooreedees, and explained clearly that whoever says so, is indeed mistaken. He said, that the Ash’arees and the Maatooreede’s are not considered from Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah in the matter concerning the Names and Attributes of Allaah). And then said that the Salafis are the Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah
