No matter how much we pound our chests proclaiming love towards Allah and His Messenger and the Companions, unless our understanding of the Qur’an and Sunnah is the same as theirs (The Companions), even if it differs a little, we have gone astray, and everything that leads astray leads to the hell-fire. … More WHY DO SALAFIS CALL THEMSELVES SALAFIS? – THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME – IS SALAFIYYAH AN INNOVATION – ARE YOU A SALAFI WITHOUT KNOWING IT?
