VIDEO: Is Demonstrating Some Principles Of Salafiyyah Sufficient For Considering A Person Salafī? | Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī
Shaykh ʿUbayd Al-Jābirī On Whether Demonstrating Some Principles Of Salafiyyah Is Sufficient For Considering A Person Salafī:
The Questioner: Our shaykh, should everyone who apparently implements the fundamentals of Salafiyyah be considered a Salafī or is it a must that people ask about his situation?
Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī: May Allāh bless you. The people of the Sunnah bring close the man who makes apparent his implementation of the Sunnah and makes apparent his love for it and its people and his defense of them and his refutation against the people of religious innovation (bidʿah); they bring this individual close.
May Allāh bless you. they bring him close. Likewise, if he makes apparent his praise for the people of the Sunnah in his region; from this angle they bring him close. However, if the opposite of this appears from him, then he is to be treated as he deserves to be treated.
So it may be that there is a clear error that appears from him that they refute. So if they find that he becomes stubborn and obstinate and this becomes his way, meaning that he stubbornly promotes religious innovation (bidʿah), those who oppose the Sunnah and he begins to praise them and make excuses for them then they will free their hands from him and consider him to be from among them and without honor.”
