E-BOOKS ON MANHAJ (METHODOLOGY)
Enjoining right and forbidding evil one of the things for which Allah revealed books His books, and with it He sent His messengers, and it is an integral part of the way (i.e. the deen). The message of Allah is composed of informative and directive parts. As for the informative, it is Allah informing us about Himself, such as tauhid (theology), or His informing us about His creation, such as the stories of previous peoples and Prophets in which are contained for us lessons, threats and promises. The directive part consists of commands to do, commands not to do, and things left to our choice and discretion.
‘YOU ARE indeed the best community that has ever been brought forth for [the good of] mankind: you enjoin the doing of what is right and forbid the doing of what is wrong, and you believe in God. Now if the followers of earlier revelation had attained to [this kind of] faith, it would have been for their own good; [but only few] among them are believers, while most of them are iniquitous:’ : Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) 3:110
The Methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal- Jamaa’ah in Criticizing Individuals, Books and Groups– by Shaykh Rabee bin Hadee Al-Madkhalee [PDF]
This book is a translation of the monumental treatise “Manhaj Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah fee Naqd-ir-Rijaal wal-Kutub wat-Tawaa’if” [The Methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah on Criticizing Individuals, Books and Groups] by Shaikh Rabee’ bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee.
Although this book has been written in recent times, it has become a classical work and an important source of reference in its own right due to the vast amount of knowledge and clarification of fundamental principles regarding the methodology of the Salaf that are contained in it. This is why the scholars of this era, the likes of Shaikh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez bin Baaz, Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee, Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaymeen, Saalih Al-Fawzaan and countless others have praised this book in particular and its author in general.
The Methodology of the Prophets in Calling to Allaah .[MS Word doc] – Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Haadee ‘Umayr al-Madkhalee [PDF Book from Fatwa-online.com – Al-Hidaayah Publishing[ Book]
‘That is the way of wisdom and intelligence’ Calling to Allaah is a very great honour which is not reached through ease, response and love of relaxation. It is not reached except through beneficial knowledge, righteous action, deep understanding and careful following of the way of the Prophets in calling to Allaah. In this book Shaykh Rabee’ ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee explains in detail the methodology of the Prophets in their call to Allaah. In it, he answers those questions which face every caller to the faith who wishes to follow the footsteps of the Prophets: What should his call begin with? What should he concentrate on? And what is the goal of his da’wah to Allaah?
The author Shaykh Rabee Ibn Haadee Al-Madkhalee then compares the methods of the Prophets with the different methodologies employed by various contemporary da’wah groups and movements that have arisen in our time and highlights the stark contrasts between these new, innovated methodologies and the pure and perfect Prophetic way. This book is an important guide for all those active in the field of da’wah, giving them an insight into the methodology of da’wah which the Prophets employed and how it is a divine and precise methodology which leaves no room for personal opinions, experimentation or individual inclinations.
This is a translation of a booklet titled “Manzilat-us-Sunnah fil-Islaam” (The Status of the Sunnah in Islaam) of Imaam Muhammad Naasir-u-Deen Al-Albaanee, may Allaah have mercy on him. The source for this booklet was a lecture he gave in Doha, Qatar during the month of Ramadaan, 1392H. The talk was later transcribed and published. This book can be downloaded in Arabic at http://www.sahab.org.
This treatise clarifies the position of the Sunnah in Islaam, in that it bears the same status as the Qur’aan when it comes to deriving religious rulings and laws. So one cannot possibly understand and implement the Qur’aan in the absence of the Sunnah, rather they go hand in hand. Imaam Al-Albaanee gives several examples for this.
The author then goes on to explain what is meant by Sunnah in his discussion, in that it refers to only the authentic Sunnah, and not the weak and fabricated hadeeth. This is a very important treatise, defining a key principle of the Salafi Manhaj, which consists of following the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, along with the understanding of the Salaf (i.e. Sahaabah, Taabi’een, Atbaa’ at-Taabi’een). This treatise is also a refutation of the deviant groups that rely on the Qur’aan alone, such as the Qur’aaniyoon, etc.

A Lengthy explanation of the first three points from “Foundations of the Sunnah ” -By Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (d.241H)
Aboo ’Abdullaah Ahmad Ibn Hanbal– rahimahullaah – say: “The Fundamental Principles of the Sunnah with us are: Clinging to that which the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) were upon, taking them as our example to be followed, avoiding innovation; and every innovation is misguidance.”

People of theSunnah,Be Kind With One Another – Shaykh Abd-ul-Muhsin Al-‘Abbaad – 46 Pages [PDF]
From Author: I hope this book, which focuses on the importance of kindness and gentleness as it relates to achieving love, unity and harmony amongst the People of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal- Jamaa’ah, will help to do that. I believe that this book contains valuable advice for Muslims all over the world. However, none of the advice contained herein should be considered as some sort of a ‘victory’ for some people, nor should it be considered a ‘defeat’ for others. It is simply excellent advice that with the help of Allah, and if the advice is followed, will bring about much needed healing and improvement in many communities around the world, and may restore some of the severed ties between brothers and sisters who used to love one another, and may restore the sometimes interrupted pathway between us and those who have busied themselves seeking knowledge. I pray for the restoration of love, unity and harmony amongst us all. I ask Allah to gather us all together upon the truth and right guidance, and to protect us from all fitnah – that which is apparent from it as well as that which is hidden. Ameen
