The People of Innovation Continue to Misrepresent Islām and Salafiyyah

Shaykh Muḥammad Ghālib al-‘Umarī

A discussion on the types of people that misrepresent Islām; the callers to takfīr and the callers to liberalism.

Shaykh Muḥammad Ghālib al-‘Umarī (حفظه الله) said on 27th December 2016:

The methodology of the Salaf—and the Companions (رضي الله عنهم) are at the head of them—is totally distant from rebelling against the ruler and calling for revolutions and upheavals. And whoever opposes that, then between them and us are the narrations.

Two groups have participated in misrepresenting the methodology of the Salaf:

1. The callers to takfīr, because they unjustly ascribe to it [the methodology of the Salaf].
2. The callers to liberalism, because they wrongfully ascribe takfīr to this methodology [of the Salaf].

In the same way that Islām was oppressed, Salafīyyah—which is following the Pious Predecessors of the Ummah, and the Companions (رضي الله عنهم) are at the head of them—was oppressed when the callers to takfīr and bombings wrongfully ascribed themselves to it [Salafīyyah].
