The Way of the Salaf Is the Best Methodology and the Moderate Path

Following has been taken from the Book: “The Creed of the Four Imaams” by Dr. Muhammad al-Khumayyis pg. 11

Allaah says,

And the first to embrace Islâm of the Muhâjirûn (those who migrated from Makkah to Al-Madinah) and the Ansâr (the citizens of Al-Madinah who helped and gave aid to the Muhâjirûn) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allâh is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success. (At-Tawbah 9:100)

Imaam al-Awzaa’ee (d.157H) – May Allah have mercy upon him – said,

“Adhere to the narrations from those who have preceded, even if the people reject you, and beware of the opinions of men, even if they beautify it with their speech. So indeed the affair will become clear (for others), while you are upon a straight path regarding it.”

Related by al-Bayhaqee in al-Madkhal (no. 233) with an authentic chain of narrators

He also said, “So make yourself patient upon the Sunnah, and stop where the people stopped, and say that they said, and refrain from what they refrained from. Travel upon the path of your righteous Salaf, for verily sufficient for you is what was sufficient for them.”

    Wa ‘alaykum salaam wa rahmatullah

    Barak Allahu feek akhi. We ask Allah to make it beneficial for everyone inshaAllah.

    MashaAllah, its good that you’re gonna be in the eboard at RIT MSA next year. We need people who can continue to spread this da’wah to others, because the people are in need of the Truth. And your reward will be great in helping to bring the Truth to them inshaAllah ta’ala.

    InshaAllah, see you this saturday. I’ll be coming up to Rochester for the graduation.
