“He’s 70% Salafī, He Seems Fine to Me”

Shaykh Abū Khadījah

How do we interact with callers who do not have active connections to the scholars, elder students and centres in their land? Do we just make the most of them?

Nowadays, it is common to find graduates from Islamic universities living and teaching in remote communities. The ability to attend and graduate from Islamic universities is no longer novel for Westerners. In that regard, what approach should be taken with callers who:

1. Have no ongoing connection to the Scholars
2. Have no connection with established Salafī elder students of knowledge or Salafī centres
3. Simply claim vague connections to old teachers or that they teach from the books of the Salaf

In this type of scenario, is it acceptable to say “they are good enough”, “they seem fine”, “they are 70% or maybe 80% or maybe 90% ok…but some people may not agree with them” and “we have to work with what we have”. Is this type of rationalisation okay or is the affair of taking knowledge more precise and serious?
