Identifying the Middle Path Amidst the Multiplicity of Muslim Groups and Movements

Shaykh Abū ʿIyāḍ

An important lecture pertaining to the trials that today’s youth are faced with in regards to identifying the middle path amidst the multiplicity of Muslim groups and movements.

In contemporary times, where the realities of the paths to misguidance are hidden behind Islamic names, titles, institutions, organisations and societies – our brother, Abū Iyāḍ Amjad Rafīq unmasks the methodology of Iblīs in attempting to invite and entice the believers to the many paths of misguidance whilst misguiding them from the path of guidance.

Amongst the points discussed:

  • Recognising the call of Iblīs and the signs of his enmity.

  • Is Iblīs inviting to sin? Or is he inviting to deviation from the path of Allāh? Which of the two is more beloved to him?

  • A brief look into the Uṣūl (foundations) of the deviant groups of the past.

  • Blessing, happiness and deliverance.

  • The significance of holding onto the Book of Allāh and to the Sunnah of Allāh’s Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), and to the Salaf in our time.

  • Utilizing the signposts of the ʿAqīdah of the Salaf as a criterion.

  • The sayings of Ahl al-Ḥaqq (past and present) are one.

  • Underlining the practical steps one should take to safeguard oneself from the various paths of misguidance and those who call to them.

  • Unveiling the cloaks of the deviant methodologies who shroud themselves with the names of institutions, organisations and charitable organisations.

  • Some of the distinguishing characteristics of Ahl al-Sunnah.
