Differences Between the Da'wah of the Salafiyyeen and the Deviant Sects

A lecture mentioning several points of clarity with regards to the da’wah of ahlus-sunnah and the da’wah of those who oppose the sunnah. This beneficial sitting outlines the definitive matters which differentiate ahlus-sunnah and ahlul-bid’ah.

Our noble brother, Aboo ‘Abdullaah Hasan as-Sumaalee introduces the topic by illustrating the way of the Imaams of the salaf with regards to clarifying the belief of ahlus-sunnah vs. ahlul-bid’ah. A crushing blow to the mumayyi’een who claim that refutation is fitnah,

‘The differentiation of ahlul-bid’ah and ahlus-sunnah is something that the ‘ulamaa have done since the very beginning of time. For when you see them, writing books such as usoolus-sunnah of Imaam Ahmad, the intention behind authoring these books is to clarify the ‘aqeedah of ahlus-sunnah wal-jama’aah. For example, from the usoolud-deen, from tawheedul-ulohiyyah, tawheedul-asmaa’ was-sifaat. And likewise, ash-sharee’ah of Imaam al-Aajurree, again, a similar book with similar structure. And the second reason these books were authored was to clarify the difference between ahlus-sunnah and ahlul-bid’ah. If you were to go and read usoolul-i’tiqaad of Imaam al-Laalikee'ee, you would see the belief of the khawaarij mentioned alongside the belief of ahlus-sunnah in regards to the one who commits a major sin… Likewise you will see mentioned, the methodology of the murji’ah that were mistaken with regards to the belief of eemaan. And if you were to go to sharhus-sunnah of Imaam al-Barbahaaree, you would see that he mentions the Khawaarij and from their signs is that they rebel against the rulers, and from the belief of ahlus-sunnah is that we obey the rulers over us…” (Transcription from the audio lecture)

The Signs of ahlus-sunnah in opposition to ahlul-bid’ah:
  1. We implement the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in every matter
  2. We take and implement that which is found upon the sahaabah (radiyallaahu 'anhum)
  3. We busy ourselves with Tawheed
  4. We do not sit with or listen to ahlul-bid’ah
  5. We desire to join the Jama’aatul-Muslimeen (upon the sunnah).
  6. We bring to life the sunan of Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
  7. We do not stick blindly to any speech other than the speech of Allaah and Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
  8. Enjoining the good and forbidding the evil
  9. We use hikmah in our da’wah
  10. We give importance to knowledge built upon the Qur’aan and the sunnah and the athaar of the salaf and acting upon this
  11. tasfiyah wat-tarbiyah (Purification and Education)
