Many people view the issue of refutation as fitnah to the ummah….. Sincerely, the main fitnah are those hiding under the umbrella of salafiyyah, sympathizing with the innovators (The muslim brotherhood) …..
If we didn’t get the concept of aqeedah and manhaj rightly,we may be lead astray if care is not taken …..
Aqeedah means creed what you believe in (àdi sokàn) while manhaj means methodology I.e path …… The two are in pari-pasu, your manhaj (path) will let people know your aqeedah …..
We found ourselves in an era where people sympathize with ikhwanu-l- muslimoon and they see the salafiyyoon as extremist (please let be sincere)….. They find it easy to accommodate those ikhwaan than the salafiyyah ……
Infact, the word salafiyyah sounds irritating in some people’s hear والعياذ بالله ……have you forgotten that the prophet was the one who ascribed the word salaf to himself.
The Hadith below expatriate the aforementioned point
« أَنَّ جِبْرِيلَ كَانَ يُعَارِضُهُ الْقُرْآنَ فِى كُلِّ سَنَةٍ مَرَّةً وَإِنَّهُ عَارَضَهُ الآنَ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَإِنِّى لاَ أُرَى الأَجَلَ إِلاَّ قَدِ اقْتَرَبَ فَاتَّقِى اللَّهَ وَاصْبِرِى فَإِنَّهُ نِعْمَ السَّلَف أَنَا لَكِ »
The messenger – Sallallahu alaihi wa Salam – said: Indeed Jibreel used to listen to my recitation of the Qur’aan once a year, and he has now (i.e. this year) done so twice, and i do not see except that my appointed time is close, so fear Allah and be patient for indeed I am a blessed ‘salaf’ (Predecessor) for you”
To me any sitting of knowledge (religion) or any scholar that fail to always analyzed aqeedah, manhaj and taoheed needs to be checked …… This is our yardstick because, التوحيد أولا لو كانوا يعلمون
We are now using manners as an excuse….. Even if some brothers are making refutation with rudeness and harshness (which is not an excuse to rely on )
Are the scholars also refuting with rudeness ????
Take from the scholars and admonish the brothers and it will even be better for you as a speaker or writer upon the truth to come out and correct with manners, call to salafiyyah with manners and stop sympathizing with falsehood …..
A scholar that is afraid to offend people has already failed…..
فلا تخافوهم وخافون إن كنتم مؤمنين
We ask Allah to grant us more understanding of islaam and rectify the affairs of this ummah.
