VIDEO: The One Who Doesn’t Know The Way Of The Salaf Is Not A Salafī | Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān

Shaykh Fawzān On How The One Who Doesn’t Know The Way Of The Salaf Is Not A Salafī: 

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: And the first and the foremost [in belief] from the Muhājirūn [those who migrated from Makkah to Madīnah] and the Anṣār [the inhabitants of Madīnah who welcomed the Prophet] and those who followed them upon goodness…” [Sūrah at-Tawbah 9:100] 

“Upon goodness here means with proficiency; it is not merely a claim: ‘I am Salafī.’ ‘I am upon the way of the Salaf.’ If you were to ask him about the way of the Salaf and what it is, [he would say] by Allāh, I don’t know. But I’m Salafī. We say to this then you are not Salafī. So long as you do not know what the way of the Salaf, then you’re not a Salafī. How could you be associated with the Salaf and you do not know their way?!”

…and those who followed them upon goodness…” [Sūrah at-Tawbah 9:100] So if you wish to be upon the way of the Salaf, then learn the way of the Salaf and what they were upon so that you may adhere to it and proceed upon it. And may Allāh guide all to what he loves and is pleased with. And may the prayers of peace and blessings of Allāh be upon our Prophet Muḥammad, his family and his companions altogether.”
