Al-hamdulillaah was-salaatu was-salaamu alaa rasoolillaah, wa ba'ad:

By the grace of Allaah there were around 1700 people who attended (brothers and sisters), and the talks were also broadcast on Paltalk, with around 150 people listening via Paltalk throughout the two days, and at one point there were 196 people in the Salafipublications.com room.

The Salafees from the various parts of the UK came together from various parts of London (Hounslow, Slough, Ilford, East Ham, Harrow, Southall and others), Manchester, Reading, Leeds, Bradford, Luton (the clear Salafees), Rochdale, Nelson, Middlesbrough, Coventry, Cardiff (Wales), Wolverhampton and other places that we cannot remember. Maashaa'allaah, The masjid was so full for the Jumu'ah prayer, that people were praying outside, up to the street, and this was even after the rows were squeezed together as much as possible.

We thank especially those who arranged transport for our Salafee brothers and sisters like the brothers from Hounslow, and we thank the teachers (male and female) at the Salafee School who played a large role in the organisation of the event. May Allaah reward them all.

The feedback we received from the people was that they were truly content and joyful, meeting people from different places of the country, with different backgrounds and nationalities, and behaving towards each other as true brothers and sisters should do. Many brothers and sisters commented on their happiness in seeing so many Salafees together, and feeling the unity, and true love for the sake of Allaah.Alhamdulillaah, this was the first time that real unity between the Salafees in the UK was felt after a couple of years, at a time when the real and true fitnah-makers who tried to cause enmity, hatred, and splits between Salafee were identified and exposed.

Finally, for those who attended, we apologise for any shortcomings on our behalf, and as always we are open to advice and suggestion. May Allaah increase the the Salafees in every place in their love and brotherhood for each other and may He remove all the causes of differences and separation between them. Ameen.

The brothers at Maktabah Salafiyyah.

AssalamuAlaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

Then just to briefly comment upon what our beloved brothers at Maktaba as-Salafiyya have stated regarding the conference, truly it was an event that brought happiness and delight to the hearts of the Salafis, walhamdulillah. The atmosphere alhamdulillah was truly unique and we thank Allah for being given the ability and sight to be part of this beautiful gathering. All the brothers on their return to Bradford constantly spoke of the amazing benefit in terms of ilm, naseehah, and brotherhood amongst the Salafis and this was something that was clearly apparent to all those who attended.

And we also use this post to say JazakumAllahu Khairan to our brothers at SalafiPublications, whom we love greatly for their enormous efforts in spreading this Dawah Salafiyyah and continuing to speak and spread and defend the truth in our time. And sometimes when we attend such conferences we sometimes take for granted what we see and fail to comprehend exactly how much hard work and effort and sacrifice that was put by those who were behind the setup with no materialistic benefit but to attain the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. May Allah reward them with a great reward and grant them true success in the Hereafter and May Allah accept their deeds, and verily to Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return.

Finally to note that our noble brother Abu Khadeejah will once again be coming to deliver a lecture in Bradford on Wednesday the 7th of January 2004 insha'allah. Further information will be posted in due course insha'allah.

Wa JazakumAllahu Khairan

Wa Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmathullaahi wa barakathuhu


The only suggestion that i can think off, if possible, is that perhaps the Brothers at Maktabah Salafiyyah could put up a tent or some form of temporary shelter just outside the main entrance, since that area became conjested when it rained and when some brothers were trying to buy some food/books and leave/enter the Masjid, this way the brothers can meet outside rather than near the wudu area and thus cause conjestion. This can raise health and safety issues and this became slightly apparent from an incident with a Brother (who for those present are wondering, he is fine and well alhamdullillah).

But, like Brother Wasim has already stated "JazakumAllahu Khairan to our brothers at SalafiPublications, whom we love greatly for their enormous efforts in spreading this Dawah Salafiyyah and continuing to speak and spread and defend the truth in our time. And sometimes when we attend such conferences we sometimes take for granted what we see and fail to comprehend exactly how much hard work and effort and sacrifice that was put by those who were behind the setup with no materialistic benefit but to attain the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala. May Allah reward them with a great reward and grant them true success in the Hereafter and May Allah accept their deeds, and verily to Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return."

We await the whole set of lectures on cassette from this conference, could the brothers at Maktabah Salafiyyah please notify us on SalafiTalk when the series is available (could all the Question and Answers sessions be included into the set aswell, Insha'Allaah.)

I think the problem was akhi that we never expected the massive turn out for the two days. We were truly amazed at the amount of brothers and sisters who turned up! جزاكم الله خيرا

Subhan'Allah!! Reading the above really makes my heart happy for the sake of Allah and makes me love the brothers at the Maktaba' Salafiyaah even more for the sake of Allah. The trials that they have faced by their enemies are too many to mention but they have always showed patience and dealt with their enemies in accordance with the Manhaj!!  

Allah is always with the Haqq and the people of Haqq. A beautiful hadeeth comes to mind:

How will you be when you will be enveloped by a trial. (through which)the old will reach senility and the young will grow . People will take  it to be a sunnah, and if any part of it is left, it will be said 'has the sunnah been left?'They asked,"And when's that? "He said " When your scholars are gone; when your reciters will increse in number; when the Fuqaha will be few in number;when the number of rulers increases; WHEN THE TRUSTWORTHY ONES WILL BE FEW; when the world is sought through the actions of the hereafter;and when knowledge of the religion is sought, but not for the religion."

Narrated by Ibn Mas'ud. Related by al- Darni (1/64)

Oh my salafee brothers in UK the trustworthy ones are surely few. So stick with the TRUSTWORTHY ONES, SALAFI PUBLICATIONS. When i lived in Birmingahm I can say with happiness that these brothers really care about this beautiful Dawah Alhumdolillah!! They always advised with what would benefit me and NEVER EVER did they put themselves first.

Oh my beloved salafi brothers around the world always remember our scholars, du'aat and brothers in your du'aas.

MAY ALLAH MAKE OUR ACTIONS SINCERELY FOR HIM ALONE SEEKING HIS FACE ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT. AMEEN

MAY ALLAH KEEP THE BROTHERS AT SALAFI PUBLICATIONS UPON THE HAQ AND FILL THEIR HEARTS WITH EMAAN.AMEEN.

MAY ALLAH BRING ALL THE SALAFEES TOGETHER UPON THE CORRECT MANHAJ AND FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH ALONE.AMEEN

MAY ALLAH PRESERVE OUR NOBLE SCHOLARS AND KEEP THEM SAFE FROM OUR ENEMIES.AMEEN

Bismillahi wa salaatu wa salaamu 'alaa rasoolillah.

Asalamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray that Allaah ta'alaa rewards the brothers at spubs and all those involved in spreading this blessed daw'ah as-salafiyyah all over the world.  Through them Allaah, subhaanhu wa ta'alaa, has brought great benefit to many and has exposed the false and destructive calls of many.  I cannot ennumerate the harms that this blessed manhaj has saved me from and the doubts and confusions that it has cleared up, by the permission of Allah.  May Allaah increase us in knowledge and give us the tawfeeq to act upon it and keep us firm on siratul mustaqeem.  Ameen.

wa 'alaikum asalaaam

As salaamu alaikum wa rahmahtullah wa barakatu.

It is so wonderful to hear about the conference and the coming together of the salafiyyah in the UK, Alhamdulillah.  Eventhough, we are hundreds of miles away here in the USA, the brotherhood can be felt through the posts here on Salafitalk.net.  Alhamdulillah.  I have been to a few events here in the USA, and have had tears come to my eyes because of the feelings of unity, togetherness, and bonding through this beautiful Deen that Allaah Subhana Wa Ta'Ala gave us.  Alhamdulillah.  And as I read the post here, those same feelings that I felt when I attended the events in the USA, I feel now, Alhamdulillah.  I look forward to attending any salafi event to benefit from the ilm and to benefit from the unity that is expressed at such events, InShaAllaah.

May Allaah Subhana Wa Ta'Ala Reward With Jannah Al-Firdous, All Those Who Were Instrumental In Bringing This Event Together And Those Who Were Instrumental In Bringing It To Those of Us Who Were Unable To Attend In Person, Ameen.

Ameen, to all the du'a in the other posts above.

As salaamu alaikum wa rahmahtullah wa barakatu

Alhamdulillaah.  We have to be thankful to Allaah for hearing such great news.  May Allaah reward all those involved.

And this level of success definitely provides some insight into why the enemies of the da'wah have stooped to new lows to try and harm the da'wah.

Furthermore, despite all their attempts to harm the da'wah, the da'wah is too strong for them, and Allaah only increased the good effects of the da'wah and protected it and its people and, not only made the du'aat immune to their attacks, but increased the Salafees in love for them, in their conviction that they are upon goodness, and in devotion to the blessed da'wah they carry.  May Allaah increase them in goodness and guide them to every good thing.

Bismillahirrahmaanirraheem!

Alhamdulillah As-Salatu Wa-Assalaamu Alaa Rasoolillah.


This was the first time I have been to any conference in my life organized by the Salafees. Alhamdulillah it was immensely filled with abundant good.

It makes me realize the fruits of steadfastness of our three noble ulamaa who have passed away , Al-Allamah Abdul Azeez Ibn Abdullah Ibn Baz (rahimahullah), Muhaddith al-Asr Muhammad Nasiruddeen al-Albaanee (rahimahullah) and the Faqeeh Muhammad Ibn Salih al-Uthai'meen (rahimahullah). By Allah, the Dawah that we see today reaching all places is what has sprung from them and that which they inherited from the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam). No doubt, they have implanted the same into the hearts of those noble ulamaa who have succeeded them and are alive amongst us. Whoever opposes them will not be able to overcome them and this is the blessing from Allah which we must be greatful and continue to seek knowledge and be patient upon that until our death Insha Allah.

Wa'assalamuaalaikum wa rahmathullahi wa barakathuhu!

Our da?wah and our ?aqeedah is more beloved to us than our own selves, our wealth and our offspring.  So we are not prepared to part with it for gold, nor silver.  We say this so that no one may have hope in buying out our da?wah, nor should he think that  it is possible for him to purchase it from us for deenaar or dirham. Since the politicians already know this about us, so they have despaired of buying it from us with granted positions or wealth..Shaikh, the Allamah, Muqbil ibn Hadee Al Waa'di'ee (Rahimahullah).

i'd like to say jazaakumallaah khair to all the organisers and especially the organising sisters for having so much sabr with the mothers and children. the event was really benficial, and one of the things that i found really beneficial was how the correct manhaj and understaning it was made really clear in the talks. the atmosphere was brilliant to experience, especially for people who are not in birmingham like myself and who dont have a big salafee community where they live. i don't know about the salafees in birmingham who see it all everyday but when you come from outside you are able to appreciate the blessing that Allah has given to you with the masjid, the school and the community.

bbAssalam-o-Alayqum

MASHA'ALLAAH - A massive turnout of Salafees definately a beautiful and insha'Allaah a blessed gathering.

I would say that at Juma'aah there was hardly any breathing space (it was that packed).  Those inside were sweating and this was not just for Juma'aah but also occurred for all of the prayers, the Masjid was full (masha'Allaah).

I quote from the initial spubs.com post:

"Many brothers and sisters commented on their happiness in seeing so many Salafees together, and feeling the unity, and true love for the sake of Allaah.Alhamdulillaah, this was the first time that real unity between the Salafees in the UK was felt after a couple of years..."

It was beautiful... Masha'Allaah.

May Allaah reward all who were involved in its organisation, the ones who assisted in its running and all those who attended and benefitted, ameen.

Wasalaam-o-Alayqum
