The Path of Salafeeyah is the Path of Guidance

The Path of Salafeeyah is the Path of Guidance

Translated by

Abbas Abu Yahya


Allaah Ta’ala said:

صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ

《The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray.》

It is none other than the path of the Salaf.

Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah – rahimullaah – said:

كل من أعرض عن الطريقة السلفية الشرعية الإلهية فإنه لابد أن يضل ويتناقض ويبقى في الجهل المركب أو البسيط .
درء التعارض ٣/٨٠

Every one who turns away from the divine path of Salafeeyah, then he is bound to go astray and contradict himself and will remain upon simple ignorance (where he knows he is ignorant), or compound ignorance (where he is ignorant of the fact that he is ignorant).’
[From ‘ Dara at-Ta’arad’ 3/80]
