Salafiyyah Is a Daʿwah Distinct from Ahl al-Bidʿah

Al-ʿAllāmah Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī

One of the defining traits of Ahl-al Sunnah is that they will call against the people of innovation, regardless of who they are.

Let the reader compare the approach to daʿwah of the late Imām of Yemen, Muqbil Ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (رحمه الله), in comparison with the likes of Abū Usamah and those whom he praises, who line up alongside people of innovation and ḥizbiyyah, praising them and being silent about their innovation. The words of the scholars speak volumes:

From the greatest reasons for the spread of the call of the people of the Sunnah in Yemen is that they distanced themselves from every innovator, and they [did] not care, even if this person [whom they abandoned] had once studied in Dammāj, such as ʿAbdullāh al-Ḥāshidī, ʿAbd al-Majīd al-Raymī, Muḥammad al-Baydānī, Muḥammad al-Mahdī and ʿAqīl al-Maqṭarī…

It is incumbent to be distinct and clear [in one’s call] and it is incumbent to stay far away from the innovators and to warn against them.'”
