|In the Name of Allaah, may the prayers and salutations be upon the |
Messenger of Allaah, his family, companions and whoever allied with him.
This is a question that we (SalafiTalk.Net) address to our Shaykh, Allaamah, Rabee ibn
Haadee al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him) and we ask Allaah to protect him from every evil and dislikeable (thing).
The question is: What is your advice, our Shaykh to the brothers responsible for the website known as Salafitalk in the English language, belonging to the brothers at Maktabah Salafiyyah. We ask Allaah to reward you with good.
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem
All praise is due to Allaah, may the prayers and salutations be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his family, companions, and those who follow his guidance. To proceed:
I advise myself and my brothers in Britain and other than it, from amongst the Salafiyyeen and those besides them from the Muslims, I advise them with the taqwaa of Allaah, the Blessed and Exalted, and to stick to the Book and the Sunnah, and hold onto them both, and to shun everything which opposes them both from statements and actions.
And I advise them to cling to the Book and the Sunnah in their beliefs, methodologies, the (fiqh) rulings, when interacting with each other and in their mannerisms, and to proceed upon the Book and Sunnah, that the Messenger of Allaah and his noble companions were upon.
Likewise I advise them to present to the people that which will benefit them, in terms of their religion and worldly affairs, whether it be on this website or others.
Furthermore, they should always strive to be truthful and to sincerely advise. They should also demonstrate good levels of conduct that are in accordance with the message of Islam and the Salafi methodology which is the true Islam.
I advise them to always bear these things in mind, in their da'wah, lessons, articles on this website or other places, whether it is in the Arabic language or any other.
The people should not be given anything except the truth and that which is beneficial, when relating to belief and worship, their religion and worldly affairs.
Mannerisms that chase people away should be avoided, and the people should be shown a manner of conduct that makes it easier for them to accept this Manhaj. Wisdom should be used when calling people to Allah, and it should also be understood that Allah placed this Manhaj to spread his religion and call to it.
"Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good manners and argue with them with that which is better."
It is compulsory upon us all that we present Islam in the most beautiful way, and that we present the Salafi Manhaj in the most pure and beautiful fashion.
When dealing with the people we should interact with the most excellent of manners, so that the people can accept this good that Allah has honoured us with and that which we have embraced. This is what I advise myself and my brothers with.
I advise them to show true brotherhood to one another, and to avoid and stay away from all causes of splitting and differing. They should always strive to cling to the truth and exalted mannerisms, which will unite them.
This does not mean that we should result to flattery and deceit. All we should do is apply a good conduct that would encourage the people to the guidance and truth that we are upon.
