What is Salafiyyah?

Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) [Manaahij p. 157]

“Salafiyyah is to follow the companions and tabi’een upon their understanding in ‘aqeedah, and their manners.”

[Manaahij p. 157]

Shaikhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah said:

وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ فِي الْعَقْلِ الصَّرِيحِ وَلَا فِي شَيْءٍ مِنْ النَّقْلِ الصَّحِيحِ مَا يُوجِبُ مُخَالَفَةَ الطَّرِيقِ السَّلَفِيَّةِ أَصْلًا

“..Know that there is not in the clear intellect nor anything in the sound texts, that which requires opposing the path of Salafiyyah at all…”

[Majmoo’ Fataawa (5/28)]
