Please note: While extensive, the list above is not comprehensive, as in the history of Islam there have been far reaching numbers of scholars upon the Qur’an & Sunnah according the methodology of the Salaf us Saalih (may Allah have mercy upon them all).

What is NOT from As-Salafiyyah

I’ve seen “so-called Salafis” do at least 5 of these on Tumblr Subhana’allah . May Allah guide us all and give us tawfeeq to practice the true characteristics of the Salaf. Ameen.

WHAT IS NOT FROM SALAFIYYAH
translation of recent tweets by Sh. Muhammad Umar Saalim Baazmul

1) Taking (knowledge) from just anyone without first looking at their situation in dealing with the Sunnah is not from the methodology of the Salaf. It used to be said: “Indeed this knowledge is religion so look at who you take your religion from.”

2) Treating the mistakes of the people of Sunnah like the mistakes of the people of innovation is not from the methodology of the Salaf, for verily every son of Adam is prone to many mistakes. The methodology of a man is to be looked at and his mistake is dealt with upon that basis.

3) Partisanship, making pacts and secret gathering in exclusion to the rest of the people is not from the methodology of the Salaf. It has been reported that: “Whenever you see those who congregate in the masjid in exclusion to the people, then know that they are upon misguidance.”

4) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to incite the people against the rulers and instigate them to rebel, demonstrate, revolt or publicly criticize them, their ministers or appointees.

5) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to abandon the seeking of mandatory knowledge and neglect seeking recommended knowledge.

6) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to attack the scholars, speak against them, to disavow their knowledge and books and to call to burning, destroying and not referencing them due to a mere mistake they fell into.

7) Blind allegiance to opinions and overestimating them is not from the methodology of the Salaf. They used to say: “My view is correct and can possibly be wrong and what my opponent is upon is wrong but may possible be right.”

8) Animosity on account of the mere occurrence of differing is not from the methodology of the Salaf. They used to differentiate in that regard according to a man’s circumstance and the reality of the issue. Differing along with a pure intention doesn’t ruin the love in any case.

9) It isn’t from the methodology of the Salaf to restrict the religion in one issue such as that whoever agrees with me is Salafi and whoever disagrees with me isn’t Salafi. Salafiyyah is a methodology not a single issue.

10) Blind following and blind allegiance without evidence is not from the methodology of the Salaf.

11) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to revile the Sahabah, even just one of them.

12) Involving oneself and delving into fitnah is not the methodology of the Salaf. Rather they avoided and warned against it.

13) Falling into division, differing and mutual hatred is not from methodology of the Salaf. Their slogan was: Do not hate one another and do not abandon one another and be brothers oh slaves of Allah.

14) Innovation and invention is not from the methodology of the Salaf. Their slogan was: Follow and do not innovate for you have been sufficed, and the affair of old is binding upon you.

15) Knowing the truth because of men is not from the methodology of the Salaf such as that anything that came from so and so must be true. Rather, their slogan was: know the truth and you will know its people, know the truth and you will be from its people.

16) Seeking popularity and elevation over people is not from the methodology of the Salaf. For verily loving to be manifested breaks the backs of people and when a youth is given leadership he misses out on abundant goodness.

17) Being concerned with purely intellectual sciences is not from the methodology of the Salaf. Their knowledge was only what Allah said, what the Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم – said and what the Sahabah said.

18) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to be silent from advising regarding Allah, His Messenger, His Book, the rulers of the muslims and their masses.

19) Over-inclination to the world and leaving off working for the hereafter is not from the methodology of the Salaf.

20) It is not from the methodology of the Salaf to utilize every verse and hadeeth as evidence until the verse is understood precisely and until the hadeeth is a sunnah that was followed.

21) Exultation above the creation is not from the methodology of the Salaf. They were callers to good, gentleness and mercy.

O Salafee! Verily, as-Sidq (truthfulness) is essential. Truthfulness of the deed, the speech, the deeds of the heart and the deeds of the limbs. Be truthful with Allaah! If you are truthful with Allaah, He will be truthful with you. If you are truthful in your Tawheed, truthful in your deeds so you perform them as Allaah commanded, truthful in your speech so you don’t lie and [only] speak with what Allaah has commanded, truthful in your prayer so you properly perform its khushoo’, rukoo’ and sujood, truthful in your da’wah, in your commanding the good and forbidding the evil, truthful in your presence in gatherings of knowledge and schools of guidance, if you are truthful in this, then Allaah will be truthful with you. Allaah will give you what you wish and Allaah will reward you for your deeds.
—  Shaykh Abu ‘Umar Usaamah al-'Utaybee (hafithahullaah), Advices Regarding Manhaj to the Beginners in Salafiyyah. 

Please remember that all of these are duaa (i.e. supplications), and supplications are a form of worship. And it is not at all permissible to abbreviate acts of worship however you wish.

The habit of the Salaf and those who came after them was to write these out fully and unabbreviated - even if it was repeated many times on the same line - as opposed to the absurd practice of our times, writing them out as “SWT”, “SAWS”, “PBUH”, “RA”, etc…

When you abbreviate them into initials, they cease being supplications and at the same time, it detracts from the right which Allaah, His Prophet, the Companions and the Salaf have upon us.

We owe it to them to send proper supplications upon them. So let us not be so lazy and stingy, my brothers and sisters!

"Sins generate more sins, and one leads to another, until they overpower a man and he finds it difficult to repent from that. As one of the earlier generation said: One of the punishments of bad deeds is more bad deeds, and one of the rewards of good deeds is more good deeds. "

- Ibn al Qayyim (May Allaah have mercy on him)  

[Al-Jawaab al-Kaafi pg36]

This hadeeth !

Ibn al-Jawzi said, ‘I pondered this hadith and it struck me with awe; I was so astounded that I almost became light headed…

‘Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani said, ‘Every believer should make this hadith a mirror to his heart, his axiom, his shelter and his topic of conversation. He should act by it in all times of motion and stillness so that he can be saved in this world and in the Hereafter.’


On the authority of Abul Abbas Abdullah bin Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
One day I was behind the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) [riding on the same mount] and he said, “O young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice]: Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, then ask Allah [alone]; and if you seek help, then seek help from Allah [alone]. And know that if the nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, they would not benefit you except with what Allah had already prescribed for you. And if they were to gather together to harm you with anything, they would not harm you except with what Allah had already prescribed against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.” It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said it was a good and sound hadeeth. Another narration, other than that of Tirmidhi, reads: Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. Recognize and acknowledge Allah in times of ease and prosperity, and He will remember you in times of adversity. And know that what has passed you by [and you have failed to attain] was not going to befall you, and what has befallen you was not going to pass you by. And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and hardship with ease.

Among the worst behaviours that diminish sincerity is to perform deeds just to be seen by people, for their praise, or to honor them, or doing deeds for the sake of worldly matters. This degrades sincerity and Tawhid.
—  ash-Shaikh ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Naasir as-Sa’adi - May Allah have mercy upon him - al-Qawlul as-Sadeed Fee Maaqaasid at-Tawhid: An Explanation of Kitaab at-Tawhid. Page 188
It is an obligation upon the husband to provide for his wife, even if she has a good salary, because his providing for her is in return for the pleasure which he gets from her - even though his income may be little, unless the woman is good-natured and is indulgent towards her husband regarding provision, then the matter is up to her.
—  Shaykh Uthaymeen [Fatwaa islamiyyah, Darussalam volume 5, pages 183/4]
