Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (rahimahullaah) stated:
By Allaah the methodology of Sayyid Qutb, (Hasan) al-Banna and Mawdoodi can never come together (in agreement) with the Salafi Methodology. They can never come together-misguidance and guidance cannot come together; so understand (this) O youth! It is obligated upon you to (adhere) to the methodology of the Salafus Saalih (i.e. the first three pious generations of Islaam-the Sahabah; then those who followed them; then those who followed the followers of the Sahaabah).
