AUDIO: What is Salafiyyah?

TITLE: What is Salafiyyah & The Deviance of Sayyid Qutb

SPEAKER: Br. Abu Riayyah Abdur Razzaq

Divisions in the Ummah

The Prophet, sallalahu alaihi wa salam, said: The Jews were divided into seventy one (71) groups and the Christians were divided into seventy two (72) and my ummah (nation) will divide into seventy three (73), each of which would be in the Fire except one

The companions asked: “Who are they, O messenger of Allaah?” He, sallalahu alaihi wa salam, said: They are those who are on the like of what I and my companions are on. And in another Hadeeth, he, sallalahu alaihi wa salam, said: The best people is my generation then those that follow them, then those who follow them (salaf – pious predecessors)

Hadith of Irbad ibn Sariyah

One day the Messenger of Allah sallalahu alaihi wa salam delivered us a very eloquent Khutbah on account of which eyes shed tears and hearts were full of tears. A man said: “O Prophet of Allah, this is as if it were a parting advice. So advise us.” He sallalahu alaihi wa salam said, “I admonish you to fear Allah, to listen and obey even if an Abyssinian slave is appointed as your leader…”

[DISEASE]

“Because whoever among you shall live after me, will see much discord.”

[SOLUTION]

“So hold fast to my Sunnah and the examples of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs who will come after me. Adhere to them and hold it fast.”

[CAUSE]

“Beware of new things (in Deen) because every Bid’ah is a misguidance”

[Abu Dawud & At-Tirmidhi]

AND THE ANSWER IS…

Straight Path= Qur’an + Authentic Sunnah + Interpretations of the Salaf

QUESTION: What is As-Salafiyyah and what is your opinion regarding it?

ANSWER: All praise is due to Allaah alone, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger, his family and his Companions.To proceed:“As-Salafiyyah” is an attachment or affiliation to the ‘Salaf’. And “The Salaf” are the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam) and the Imaams of guidance (may Allaah be pleased with them) from the first three generations, those whose goodness Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) bore witness to in his statement:

“The best of mankind is my generation, then those who follow them, then those who follow them. Then there will come people where bearing witness of one of them will precede his taking an oath and his taking an oath will be his bearing witness.”

[Reported by Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal in the ‘Musnad’, ‘Al-Bukhaaree’, and Muslim]*

And “The Salafiyyoon [or Salafees]” is the plural of “Salafi”, an attachment or affiliation to the Salaf, and its meaning has already preceded above – and they are those who traverse upon the Methodology (Manhaj) of the Salaf in following the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah [of the Messenger of Allaah], and inviting to them, and acting upon them, and they are, due to this, Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah.

    Beautiful MashaAllah!

    Indeed the correct way of understanding the real Islam is to refer to the Holy Quran as the basis for all knowledge and then understanding the Sunnah and Hadith in its light. Anything that cannot be linked back to the Quran cannot be declared an integral part of Islam. We must be very careful when we assume that something is or is not part of Islam. Allah has protected the Holy Book for this very purpose that no matter how much time passes the word of Allah remains pure and provides guidance to those who truly want to submit to his will and stay on course to becoming true Muslims.
    The values, injunctions, and the principles enshrined in the Book form the corner stone of the Islamic polity and the limits laid down by it provide the framework within which the laws of the Islamic State may be formulated. These principles, or limits, or framework, are immutable, but the statutes made by the State within these four corners are open to modification and change according to the needs of the times.

    The Qur’an is the last of the Divine Books, because Messenger-hood ended with Muhammad. No subsequent human opinion or pronouncement in matters of deen, therefore, can be recognized as authoritative; nor can any man-made law repugnant to the Qur’an be regarded as binding upon the Muslims. The Qur’an is a book of guidance for all mankind and transcends the barriers of time and space. The Islamic State is an instrument for the enforcement of the Laws and Injunctions embodied in the Qur’an.
    May Allah guide us and have mercy on us. Ameen.
    Abdul Momin
