The Distinguishing Signs of the People of Sunnah – Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzan

ًQuestion: Eminent Shaykh, this questioners asks: “What are the distinguishing signs of Ahlu Sunnah wal jamaa’ah?”

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, all praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds and peace and salutation be up on our prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

The distinguishing signs of the People of Sunnah are many – and all praises and thanks be to Allah.

The most distinguishing being: Acting upon the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and the soundness of their creed from ideological deviations and the deviations that some sects have been exposed to.

Ahlu Sunnah wal jamaa’ah are upright, upon the Book and the Sunnah. They act upon what the preferred generations were upon; the companions, tabi’een and those who followed them in righteousness. In accordance with the statement of the Prophet’s saying: “Upon you is my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the Rightly Guided Caliphs, cling to it and bite onto it with your molar teeth, and be aware of newly invented matters, for every newly invented matter is an innovation and every innovation is a misguidance”

They act upon the Book and Sunnah and what the Salaf of this ummah were upon. They avoid Innovation and newly invented matters, they avoid false misinterpretations of the names and attributes [of Allah]. They affirm the names and attributes [of Allah], in accordance to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, peace be upon him, they do not distort, make resemblance or negate [the names and attributes of Allah] as Allah says: “There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.” (Ash-Shura 42:11)

They Make No Differentiation Between What Ahlus Sunnah Say and What Ahlul Bidah Say- Ibn Taymiyyah

Ibn Taymiyyah said:There are a people who know not Ahlus Sunnah’s creed as it should be; or they know some & are ignorant of some of it. They conceal what they know & do not clarify it for the people. They neither forbid innovations nor rebuke Ahlul Bidah. They would reject a statement in the Sunnah & make no differentiation between what Ahlus Sunnah say and what Ahlul Bidah say.
This path has overwhelmed many of the Murji’ah, the ascetics & philosophers, just as it has overwhelmed many people of desires & rhetoric.

Reading the Books of the Innovators? – Ash Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan

 

Question:

Is it permissible to seek knowledge from the people of innovation and to read their books due to the absence of the books of Ahlus-Sunnah in my country?

Answer:

All praise is due to Allaah; Ahlus-Sunnah are present and their books are present, however it is required of you to seek (knowledge) and to be eager, and do not depend on the people of innovation and the books of the innovators; do not depend on them because they are like the poisoned food that kills.
