Audio Clip on The Protection of both the Qur’aan and the Sunnah
Stated the Imaam of Ahlus Sunnah, Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Ibn Hanbal (d.241H) – rahimahullah, “All praise is for Allah, who in every age and interval between the Prophets, raises up a group from the People of Knowledge, who call the misguided to guidance and patiently bear ill-treatment and harm. With the Book of Allah, they give life to the dead, and by the Light of Allah, they give sight to the blind. How many a person killed by Iblees have they revived. How many people astray and wandering have they guided. How beautiful their effects have been upon the people, and how vile people have been towards them. They expel from the Book of Allah the alterations of those going beyond bounds, the false claims of the liars and the false interpretations of the ignorant ones – those who uphold the banner of innovation and let loose the trials and discords, who differ about the Book, oppose the Book and agree to oppose the Book. Those who speak about Allah and His Book without knowledge, argue about what is ambiguous in the Book, and deceive the ignorant with such ambiguities. We seek refuge in Allah from the trials of the misguided ones.”
Taken from ar-Radd ‘alal Jahmiyyah waz-Zanaadiqah (p. 2) of Imaam Ahmad
In this short audio clip taken from CD 9 of the Explanation of the Creed of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah, Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel explains why its important to understand the Qur’aan with the Sunnah. And then he goes on to talk about the virtues of the scholars of the people of Sunnah and how they act upon their knowledge which is taken from the Book and the Sunnah. Whereas, the people of innovation and their scholars, they dont take from the Kitaab and the Sunnah and they likewise don’t teach the people the Kitaab and the Sunnah. Rather they use the corrupt knowledge that they have to gain worldly favors from the people and to misguide the people even more.
We ask Allah to always keep us firmly attached to the scholars who are upon the Truth and to bring us together in the next life with those scholars of Ahlus Sunnah whom we have not seen or met from the previous generations, such as the scholars from the Sahaabah radiyallahu anhum, and the Tabi’oon and the attba-Tabi’oon, and the four imaams of fiqh, those who came in the same time period like Sufyaan ath-Thawree and Hasan al-Basree and Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibnul Qayyim and Shaykh ul-Islaam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab rahimahumullah.
