A Sincere Advice and Clarification | Ustādh Aḥmad Banājah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the following treatise, we are going to clarify some Qawā’id (Principles) which some of our Muslim brothers have innovated by themselves, for which no proofs can be found within the Qur’ān and the Sunnah. What is very saddening is that some of these innovated Qawā‘id have entered into most of the Salafi communities around the world.

The truth is that there is a big misunderstanding between the people. If you observe the situation of most of the Salafi brothers in this Fitnah, we see that they have not taken the methodology of the Salaf but rather have made Taqlīd (blind following) of certain individuals.

Some of the points which will be clarified in this treatise, if Allāh wills, are as follows:

  1. The meaning of al-Kibār al-‘Ulamā (Major Scholars)

  2. Our attitude towards the Kibār al-‘Ulamā

  3. Tawaqquf, its meaning and its ruling

  4. Supporting the Haq and Refuting the Bātil is from among the principles of Ahlus-Sunnah
