In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
Indeed, some of the spiteful Salafi haters – amongst the supporters of the obstinate Murji (Ed Husain) – desperately desire that a truthful distinction is not made between the pure Salafi methodology and the satanic methodology of ISIS, Al Qaeda and other khaarijite terrorist groups, because they want to use their fight against ISIS as a double edged-sword. They show the world that they are fighting against a barbaric ideology as well as earning a living through such publications, but also utilizing these publications to tarnish the name of pure Islaam, the authentic Sunnah and Salafiyyah. This is why they constantly seek to attribute ISIS, Al Qaeda, Jabhat Al-Nusra and other Jihadists to Salafiyyah, and they harbour severe hatred in their hearts against those who unveil this sinister plot of theirs; but their hatred only strengthens the Salafiyyoon by the Tawfeeq of Allaah. So, when their plots are destroyed through the knowledge based clarifications produced by our Salafi scholars and their students, they employ another tactic of shaytaan – a tactic inherited from the people of the pre-Islamic era of ignorance, saying, “This is speech of people with low IQ”. Indeed Allaah [The Most High] stated that the people of Nooh [peace be upon him] said about Nooh and the believers:
[وَمَا نَرَٮٰكَ ٱتَّبَعَكَ إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ هُمۡ أَرَاذِلُنَا بَادِىَ ٱلرَّأۡىِ – Nor do we see any follow you but the meanest among us and they (too) followed you without thinking. [Surah Hud. Verse 27]
Imaam Sadi [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said: “In their view, they did not see that anyone followed Nooh [alayhis-salaam] except the meanest and foolish ones”.
