Ultraconservative Salafis! Jihaadi Salafis! Moderate Salafis!

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah (The Most High) said:

شَرَعَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلدِّينِ مَا وَصَّىٰ بِهِۦ نُوحً۬ا وَٱلَّذِىٓ أَوۡحَيۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَ وَمَا وَصَّيۡنَا بِهِۦۤ إِبۡرَٲهِيمَ وَمُوسَىٰ وَعِيسَىٰٓ‌ۖ أَنۡ أَقِيمُواْ ٱلدِّينَ وَلَا تَتَفَرَّقُواْ فِيهِ‌ۚ كَبُرَ عَلَى ٱلۡمُشۡرِكِينَ مَا تَدۡعُوهُمۡ إِلَيۡهِ‌ۚ ٱللَّهُ يَجۡتَبِىٓ إِلَيۡهِ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَہۡدِىٓ إِلَيۡهِ مَن يُنِيبُ

He (Allah) has ordained for you the same religion (Islam) which He ordained for Nuh (Noah), and that which We have inspired in you (O Muhammad), and that which We ordained for Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses) and ‘Iesa (Jesus) saying you should establish religion (i.e. to do what it orders you to do practically), and make no divisions in it (religion) (i.e. various sects in religion). Intolerable for the Mushrikun , is that to which you (O Muhammad) call them. Allah chooses for Himself whom He wills, and guides unto Himself who turns to Him in repentance and in obedience.  [42:13]


Allaah (The Most High) said:

يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطۡفِـُٔواْ نُورَ ٱللَّهِ بِأَفۡوَٲهِهِمۡ وَٱللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِۦ وَلَوۡ ڪَرِهَ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرُونَ

They intend to put out the Light of Allah (i.e. the religion of Islam, this Qur’an, and Prophet Muhammad) with their mouths. But Allah will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it).  [61:8]


Allaah (The Most High) said:

هُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَرۡسَلَ رَسُولَهُ ۥ بِٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَدِينِ ٱلۡحَقِّ لِيُظۡهِرَهُ ۥ عَلَى ٱلدِّينِ كُلِّهِۦ وَلَوۡ كَرِهَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِكُونَ

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed ) hate (it). [61:9]

Indeed, some of the [Munaafiqoon, Jews, Christians, Secularists and atheists] amongst the journalists are always seeking to tarnish the image of Salafiyyah by attributing it to the different methodologies of Ikhwaan Al-Muslimoon and the people of bidah—be it the Surooriyyah, Qutubiyyah etc.

They also refer to some of the hizbiyyoon and people of bidah—whom they describe as bearded men dressed in long white thobes and are involved in politics, as ultraconservative  Salafis; or some of the khaarijite figureheads as Jihaadi Wahhaabi-Salafis, or some of the figureheads of Tamyi as Moderate Salafis etc.   In reality all these people belong to the splinter groups of Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen. 

Indeed, the emergence of these deviated-Ikhwaani-splinter groups is pleasing to the enemies of Tawheed, the enemies of the authentic Sunnah of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and the enemies of methodology of the pious predecessors; because unity upon the Qur’an and the Sunnah as understood by the Salaf  is a safeguard against division, splitting, bidah, speculation, false and innovated methodologies etc


Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

So we say to the hizbiyyoon: Between us and you are the Books of the Salaf! The Books of the Salaf are still present.  Allaah (The Most High) commanded the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), saying: [قُلۡ فَأۡتُواْ بِٱلتَّوۡرَٮٰةِ فَٱتۡلُوهَآ إِن كُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِينَ] ‘’Say (O Muhammad): So bring the Torah and recite it, if you are truthful;” so they brought the Torah and it belied.

Likewise, we bring the Books of the Salaf to these people; we bring the Qur’aan and the Sunnah to them; we bring Saheeh Bukhaari, Saheeh Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawood, Sunan Tirmidhee, Sunan Nasaa’ee, the Books of Imaam Ahmad and other than him from the Salaf—and then we will find out those who are upon the path of the Salaf and those in opposition to them!  Just as Allaah (The Most High) challenged the Jews to present the Torah, so they presented it and it opposed what they were upon; likewise we challenge the people of hizbiyyah to present the Books of the Salaf in order to expose the innovators amongst us and them!

We call to the methodology of the Salaf—to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger.  We utilize them as proofs in our creed; in our acts of worship; in our stances; in our relationship with the rulers and the ruled and in our relationship with the groups and sects.  As for others, they play games and tricks.  By Allaah! You do not find them except that they play tricks and games with the passion (or inclinations) of the youth.
