Distinguishing Signs of Haddādiyyah (Extremists)
A brief treatise by the Imām of al-Jarḥ wa-al-Taʿdīl set to defeat the fitnah of those who attribute this Haddādiyyah to the Salafīyyīn who care for their manhaj. It includes twelve decisive points of benefit clearly outlining the difference between true Salafīyyah and Haddādiyyah. It also serves as a clarification and a challenge to Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maʿribī and his accusations against the Salafīyyīn.
So if Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maʿribī can clarify to us with clear evidences whom he is referring to as Haddaadiyyah, since he has described them with these attributes, then we will spare no effort in finding them guilty of Haddādiyyah and we will punish them by writing about them and warning against them and we will place them alongside the Hadādiyyīn without any consideration.
