Distinguish Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah and Salafiyya
Question1-What is Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah?
Answer: Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah is the largest creed and only righteous sect in Islam.it is the main body of Islam.The Belief and Practise of Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah comprise of four schools of Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) namely:Hanafi,Shafi,Maliki,Hanbali. The followers of real the true Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah strictly adhere to one this schools.
This four Imams are from the Salafs (predecessors)
Quick Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ab%C5%AB_%E1%B8%A4an%C4%ABfa
The second part of the belief and practise of Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah is based on “Aqeedha (Theology) which is compiled by two schools.
Mathuridi and Ash’ari shcools of Theology
The third part of Sunni Islam is Tasawwuf or Spirituality (Ihsan-Sufism)
There are many path of Tasawwuf all of which traces it’s lineage to Hazret Ali Ibn Abdi Talib (the fourth caliph of Islam), but Naqshbandi Sufi order traces both Hazret abu Bakar Siddiq and Hazret Ali (peace be up on them). Most Sufi Orders takes lineage through 12 Imams fo the Ahlu Baith (family of Prophet). But Shi’a claims they are Shi’a Imams.
All Schools of Tasawwuf,theology and Fiqh taken birth during the time of 11 Imams of Ahlu bayth. This scholars of Ahlu Sunnah wal jamah were their students and given permission by them or by their deputies.
The Imams of all Sufi Orders are from the family of Prophet (ahlu Bait).
Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him) while holding the door of the Ka’ba, said that he had heard the Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) say, “My family among you are like Noah’s ark. He who sails on it will be safe, but he who holds back from it will perish.” (Ahmad)
All Imams of the Past were Madhab following Sufis:
Question2- What is the difference between Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah and Salafiyya (Wahhabi)
Answer:As you can see what is Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamah with a clear research of you own with the informations given above.
But Salafiya is a sect created by an Arab Scholar”Muhammad Ibn abdul Wahhab” from Najd for the sake of British colonials and Zionists to make filth in Muslim Ummah and to disintegrate Caliphate of Islam (Ottoman Caliphs) which ruled entire Muslim world for 700 years with the flag of Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be up on him).
When you search Islamic History only Sunni-Sufi Muslims hold the flag of Prophet and rled the Islamic world. Neither Shia nor Salafiya cannot hold the flag of Prophet until todday.
The relationship between Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab and British Spy Hempher is not secret anymore.
British Empire through Hempher and Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab destroyed the Caliphate to help Zionist for realizing Israel and to plunder the wealth in Arabia (Oil and gas),
There were known that if Caliphate remains in power then with the discovery of Wealth (oil and gas) in the lands of Caliphate jews and Christian never can succeed Muslims.
And they knew that the power of Muslims and Islam cannot be destroyed from outside. So with “divide and rule” strategy they made rebellions in Arabia with their agents.
Salafiyya do not follow any particular madhab. They claims to be followers of Salafs. But the salafs were followed one of the four Madhabs strictly and respected other Madhabs.
Saalfiya do not follow any classcial aqeedha. But they follow the Aqeedha made by Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab in 19th Century and his successor Nasiruddin al banee.
Their lineage is weak and no chain (silsila) which connect them to Prophet in authorisation of sucessors.
Just like weak hadiths which we do not accept as chain of authority (transmitters) are weak chain. This filth sects leaders have no lineage to Prophet and no Ijazah (permission) was given from the holy lineage.
Wahhabis rejects Sufi Ways (tarikat) while all Caliphs of Islam were following Sufism and respecting Shaykhs of Tasawwuf.
In reality Islam spread in the world by Sufis, when you read the history.
While Wahhabi islam started spreading after Saudi Oil money.
Question3- Is Wahhabi Saudi Arabia really following Islamic Shari’ah?
Answer:May I ask you some question?. Holy Makkah and Madinah are the Holy Cities for all Muslims. Every Muslim have a right to perform rituals there. Where in Islamic Shari’ah it says you need visa and shall be paid money for Saudia to go for Hajj?
Was prophet or salafs implemented entry fee to Makkah and Madinah for Hajj Ziyarah and Umrah?
Do Saudi goverment give any civil right of residence status for the foreginers in their lands?
Christian countries are better than today’s so called Muslim countries in giving civil rights to the residents of the country.
Why this Hypocrisy in the name of Islam?
Research yourself and find out more….
Question4- Why Sufism is not much preached by Muslim Scholars?
Answer:As Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah) be up on him said in many Hadiths, that afflictions and deviance will come in the last part of this Ummah. Sufism and way of Tasawwuf was declined in the Muslim world only 100 years now. When you look at any previous Imams or shcolars of Islam (Sunni) , they all were following Sufism and were living under a Shaykh’s guidance (tarbiyyath).And today, forget about tasawwuf (shari’ah) Muslims are far away from the basics of Shari’ah, that is to know How to recite Quran, how to pray, fast, give zakat and perform Hajj and living with good Charecter (Akhlaq) and Adab (discipline).
Question5- What are the requirement for one to become a follower of Sufi Path (Tarikat).
Answer: Adab(Discipline), Akhlaq(Charecter),Submission,Sinceirity and Faith.
Question6- Why Salafi do not follow any particular Madhab?
Answer: In Quran chapter 4 verse 59. O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged withauthority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.
Allah saying to obey those who are in authority amongst you. Salafis not following anyone in authority amongst us. Or amongst in the past generations after three generations after Prophet.
Todays salafis claim to be salfis are false. The real Salafis are those who followed the real salfs. They are the fourth and fifth and sixth generations.They were the stundents of the real salafis. Learn who are they and what they were up on when you claim that you are salafi, without any lineage to real salafis.
In Islam everything comes and accepted with lineage (silsila,Sanad) and Permission (Ijazah).
Question7- Can you refute Salafiya?
Answer: Yes, Insha ALLAH, not only Salafiya but any filth sects by the will of ALLAH.
In a Salafi Website it is written: Who are the Salaf and who are the Salafis?
The Pious Forefathers (i.e. As-Salaf as-Saalih) of the Islamic Community of Believers are the Companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him, their Followers (the Taabi’een and the Taabi Taabi’een (i.e. the first three generations of Muslims) and the Scholars of the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah after them who followed their way in belief and deed. Among them are :
Imam Abu Hanifah (150 AH), Al-Awzai (157 AH), Ath-Thawri (161AH), Al Laith ibn Saad (175 AH), Imam Malik (179 AH), Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak (181 AH), Sufyan ibn Uyainah (198 AH), Imam Ash-Shafi’i (204 AH), Ishaq (238 AH), Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal (241 AH), Al-Bukhari (256 AH), Muslim (261 AH), Abu Dawood (275 AH) and others.
Ibn Taymiyyah (728 AH), and his students: Adh-Dhahabi (748 AH), Ibn al-Qayyim (751 AH), Ibn Katheer (774 AH) and others.
My Comments:Learn their Bio-graphy and books, rather than writing names. They were up on Sufism: https://inspirations786.wordpress.com/sufism/
Muhammed bin ‘Abd al-Wahhab (1206 AH) and many of students.
And in our time: Abdul Aziz bin Baz, Muhammed bin Saalih Uthaimeen, Muhammed Naasr-ud-Deen al-Albaani.
Comments: Where the chain of transmission (Silsila) which connect them to those who were in the first 10 generations of Islam?
You are writing Ibn Kathi’r name (728AH) and then you have only Muhammad Ibn Abdl Wahhab at 1206 Hijra Year). No Salafiya in between?
Why like this?, If you do not have a chain of authority between first three generations and last names (Al Banee) you mention) then are you saying to me that there were no real islam for 700 years?
So are you saying that, Allah left the world with out deen Islam for more than 500 years?
Or are you saying that Allah broke his promise given in Quran that “this religion will last until last day without broken”?
The Salafis are the Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah. They are the Taaifatul- Mansoorah (the Aided, Victorious Group) and the Firqatun-Naajiyyah (the Saved Sect) which have been mentioned in the following statements of the Messenger, peace be upon him:
“There shall not cease to remain a single group from my community upon the Truth, victorious; they are unharmed by those who abandon them and those who oppose them. They will remain (in my community and in such a state) until they fight the liar (i.e. the Anti-Christ (Dajjal).” [Reported in Sahih Muslim]
Comments: Why you taking this hadith?, this hadith is about Anti-Christ , maseeh Dajjal.
It is Imam Mahdi alaihissalam and Esa alaihissalam who fight Dajjal.
Imam Mahdi is from the lineage of Ahlu Bayth and Ahlu Sunna Wal jamah.
Where is the lineage of Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab and Al Banee. show us, who are they? what is their lineage and from whom did they get Ijazah (permission).
Question8- Do Sufis worhip grave and dead?
Answer- Sufis do not worship anyone other than Allah. it is Wahhabis who call Sufis are Mushrik and It is from Prophet (peace be up on him) said: “The attacker, who attack Muslim by accusing shirk on him, is worthy to be called as “Mushrik” in a Sahih Hadith.
The Prophet said “Verily, I fear about a man from you who will read the Qur’an so much that his face will become enlightened and he will come to personify Islam. This will continue until Allah desires. Then these things will be taken away from him when he will disregard them by putting them all behind him and will attack his neighbour with the sword accusing him of Shirk. The Prophet was asked – which of the two was commuting Shirk – the attacker or the attacked. The prophet replied – the attacker (the one accusing the other of Shirk).
We do Qabar Ziyarah and visit to the grave of any beloved people. To pray for them to pray for us in their holy presence.
Muslims do not believe death is the end of life, but death is the beginning of the real life.
It is a part ofSunnah to visit the garve and pray for the people who left us. Normally in front of a grave the knowledgeable one recite Sura Fatiha, Yaseen and Dua which normally recite in other times.
A hadith reported by many hadith Scholars: “I had prohibited visiting graves for you. From now on you can visit graves”. (Muslim, Janaiz, 106; Adahi, 37; Abu Dawud janaiz, 77; Ashriba, 7; Tirmidhi, Janaiz, 7; Nasai, Janaiz, 100; Ibn Majah, Janaiz, 47; Ahmad b. Hanbal, I, 147, 452, III, 38, 63, 237, 250, V, 35, 355, 357). Hadiths that state that the Prophet cursed on women who visited graves too often (Tirmidhi, Salat, 21; Janaiz, 61; Nasai, Janaiz, 104; Ibn Maja, Janaiz, 49) belong to the period of time when visiting graves were prohibited. Tirmidhi stated it clearly (Tirmidhi, Janaiz, 60). Hazrat Aisha and Ibn Abdilberr agreed on it.
It is not the responsibility of Sufis that some people doing grave worship, just like it is not resonsibilty of Islam and Muslims that some people become terrorists and suicide bombings.
Question 9: How can I become a follower of Sufism? (Tarikat) and How do I know a Shaikh is real and a Sufi Way is right?
Answer:It is very easy, but you need sincere interest. The first step is taubah (repentance) and the second is to have Niyyah (Intention) to find a Tarika and a Shaykh. If you believe in Allah and His Messenger then it is the responsibility of Allah to help you once you made sincere intention.
Tarikat is not served in some dawah catalouges or in markets, so to become a Sufi you must start from your own self.
Sufism requires to give Oath of allegiance to a Shaykh of Tasawwuf called “baya” (initiatio) to follow the counsel and Zikr given by Shaykh. A Shaykh will be a Wali of Allah. He have Ijazah -Permission and he is from Ahlu Sunah Wal Jamah, he has a lineage to Prophet in an unbroken chain of authority.
To find out your righteous shaykh, recite salawat on Prophet aboundantly and make dua to Allah, to give you an aid (helper) to help you in the way of Truth. As said in Quran, chapter 17, verse 80. Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid [me].”
Once You Seek for a true Shaykh then Allah will show you through your dream
Itis clear from Quran that we must seek a spiritual guide to help us in the way of Allah. Not like salafiya saying, we catch the salafs directly!.
Hazret Ali Ibn Abi Talib (Radiyallahu anhu) saying: ALI IBN ABI TAALIB RADIYLLAHU ANHU ON BAPTISM:
Hazret Ali Ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahu Anhu) on Importance of Following a True ***Spiritual Guide***:
Hazret Ali Ibn Abi Taalib (Radiyallahu Anhu) saying :
أذا المرء ربّي نفسه بمراده لقد شاد بنيانا علي غير أسّه “
ومن لم تربّيه الرجال وتسقه لبانا لهم قد درّ من ثدى قدسه
فذاك لقيط ماله نسبة الولا ولن يتعدّى غير ابناء جنسه
(30 قلا دة الجواهر )
“When someone make tarbiyyath himself without a Shaykh, it is like he constructing a building without the foundation!,Those who do not have tarbiyath of shyakhs will not get the flow spiritual wisdom coming from Allah through the Shaykhs (awliya ALLAH),thus he will not reach in lofty stations of faith. He will be like illegitimate children who got someone to be called as a father!”
(Qalaidul Jawahir 30)
IMAM MALIK ONE AMONG SALFS (RADIYALLAHU ANHU) ON BAPTISM
Imam Malik (94-179 H./716-795 CE)-The Sunni Madhab Imam as well as Sufi Saint
Imam Malik (r) said, “Whoever studies jurisprudence (fiqh) and didn’t study Sufism (tasawwuf) will be corrupted; and whoever studied tasawwuf and didn’t study jurisprudence will become a heretic; and whoever combined both will be reach the Truth.” This saying is mentioned and explained in the book of the scholar ‘Ali al-Adawi with the explanation of Imam Abil-Hassan, a scholar of jurisprudence, vol. 2, p. 195.
Quran and Hadith Says: Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
2:2. This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear
2: 138. [Our religion is] the Baptism of Allah: And who can baptize better than
Allah? And it is He Whom we worship.
4:59. O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to
Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is
best, and most suitable for final determination.
10:62 Behold! Verily on the Friends of Allah there will be no fear, nor will they grieve. (They are) those who accept Imaan and adopt Taqwaa. (10:62-63)
17: 80. Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and
likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence
an authority to aid [me].”
On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:
p “Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.
p narrated by Muslim
On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: the messenger of Allah said:
p Allah the Almighty has said: “Who soever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.”
p related by Bukhari.
So follow them and obey them and be Baptized by Ulool Amru (Awliya Allah) those who are charged with authority amongst you.
Question 10:I am very impressed with this answers, If I have further questions, I will ask you again. Can you tell me about your Tarikat.
Answer:My shaykh is Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani, he lives in Cyprus and you can take Bayat from one of his deputies.He is the grand shaykh of Golden Chain, Silsila Adhabiya Naqshbandiya.He is a descendant of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be up on him). His family lineage trace back to Mawlana Rumi(great saint) and Shaykh Abbdul Qadir Al Jilani (great saint and great Hanbali madhab Scholar)
I am following his deputy Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi, he is also a descendant of Prophet and as mentioned above as well as he is blessed with the lineage to Ottoman SUlthan’s family lineage. Who were the last Caliph of Islam.
