Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân

- Question: Recently, a lot has been said about how some people not are Salafiyyûn. Is this meaning considered to be Tabdî’ and is it required that one first finds out the truth?
Shaykh al-Fawzân: I warn against these nicknames. The Muslims and the students are – if Allâh wills – in a good condition and in accordance with the creed of the Salaf. Just because one person possesses negligence or ignorance, then that does not mean that he is excluded from Salafiyyah. It is not allowed to speak in this way. This speech is not allowed between the brothers, students and the Muslims in the Muslim lands. This speech is not allowed. It is obligatory to advise if one sees something noteworthy in his brother. But to just say that he does not belong to the Salafiyyûn? It is perhaps you who have not understood Salafiyyah yet. Some subscribe to Salafiyyah without understanding it. [Unclear sound]… Salafî. If you ask him about Salafiyyah, he doesn’t know.
