  Is referring oneself as a selefi ,self-tazkiyyah?

Shaykh Ubayd al Jabere of al-Madeneh on those who say that referring to oneself as a selefi is a self-tezkiyah

The following question  was asked to sheikh Ubejd al Jabere : What is your position on someone who says,Whoever calls himself a salafe is giving himself a tezkiyah (ie.ascribing purity to himself):thus it is obligatory upon a person of the sunnah,if he is asked about this ,to say (only) : I am uupon the manhaj of the salaf ?


This is a form of playing  with words.

The followers of Al-Ikhwaan(Al-muslimoon) openly claim ikhwaaniyyah(ie they call themselves ikhwaanees),
The followers of (Jamaa'ah) At-tablegh openly claim  Tableeghiyyah(ie they call themselves tableeghees) , and so forth, so then why would a salafee hide his salafiyyeh ? and I have just previously mentioned that shaykh Al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah relayed that there exists ijmaa (scholary consensus), and I have refered you to its source.[1]


Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Tejmije stated,There is no blame on the one  who openly manifests the math-hab of the salaf ,ascribes himself to it,and takes honour in it..rather that must be accepted(of the scholars).For verily the math-hab of the salaf is nothing but truth..
