“What is your advice to a person who wishes to seek knowledge and hold on to it?” The Shaykh replied:  ‘It is upon you to maintain contact with the people of knowledge (ʿUlamāʾ) so that you can benefit from them…’ An important answer from a true Alim (scholar) which needs to be comprehended by the Muslims since many have taken the laymen, one who memorized a book, one who spent a day or  month with an alim, read books of Tafsīr and Ḥadīth in Kuffar Universities and so on to be the beacons of knowledge in their lives. This answer is also a …

Speaking about the affairs of religion must only be done purely for Allāh’s sake. One’s intention must exemplify this in calling to Allāh. The allowance of desires to disturb this pure intention only causes ruin to the hearts of people.   Allāh explained that their splitting only occurred after the knowledge had come to them, and which showed them what they were commanded to do and to avoid. For Allāh does not leave people to stray, except after giving them guidance, until He explains to them what they were commanded to do.

By this, their ranks will unite and their word will be one, and they will be a single body, a single building and a single army in opposition to their enemies. Proceeding Upon Knowledge Imām al-Bukhārī (d.256H) – raḥimahullāh- said: ‘‘Chapter: Knowledge comes before speech and actions, as Allāh – the Most High – said: ‘‘So have knowledge that none has the right to be worshipped except Allāh, and seek forgiveness for …

Therefore, the key to a return of the glory of Islām is: Implementation of beneficial knowledge and establishing righteous and correct actions, and this is a very great affair with the Muslims cannot reach, except through the methodology (manhaj) of taṣfiyah (purification and correction) and tarbiyah (education and cultivation). Purifying the Islamic ʿaqīdah from that which is alien to it, such as shirk, taʿtīl, taʿwīl, refusing authentic aḥādīth, because they are connected to matters of ʿaqīdah, and their like. Imām al-AlbānīThese being two very great obligations. By the first of these …

Splitting up (tafarruq) is not from the Religion, because the Religion commands us with unity, and to be one jamāʿah (community), and one Ummah upon the ʿaqīdah of tawḥīd, and upon following the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam). Al-ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdullāh ibn BāzAn important set of questions and answers surrounding: the importance of ʿaqīdah, the harm of multiple Islamic groups (and movements), and the incumbency of following the manhaj of the salaf.

Firstly, al-Daʿwah al-Salafīyyah is the pure Religion which calls to Tawḥīd and sincerity of worship. It is the daʿwah or the call to belief in Allāh, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Day of Judgement, and belief in Qadar (pre-Decree). Therefore, al-Daʿwah al-Salafīyyah is the daʿwah of all of the Prophets, from Nūh who was the first Prophet, all the way to Muḥammad ﷺ who was the last and final Prophet and Messenger to be sent to mankind. Shaykh ʿUbayd ibn ʿAbdullāh al-Jābirī Al-daʿwah al-Salafīyyah is the daʿwah of the people to act in accordance with that which the Messenger of…

Yes they bring a salafī to give a talk, but they spread matters that are innovation, and they bring someone to the same place at which you spoke in today, tomorrow they bring someone who contradicts that. Have you understood? So the reality is that I do not allow this, nor do I hold that it will rectify and put them aright. And we advise our brothers who go to them, and we give them information about them, so many of them, and all praise is for Allāh. Understand the affair! Al-ʿAllāmah ʿUbayd ibn ʿAbdullāh al-Jābirī
