Shaikh Ubaid Ibn Abdillah Al-Jabiri | Miraath Publications
Know, may Allah bless you, that no one from the human beings in any time or place founded Salafiyyah. �ê’_rather it is from Allah. �ê’_the Prophets and Messengers brought it to their respective people. �ê’_They conveyed that which He The Mighty and Majestic wished from the worship legislatively, as did those who came after them from their companions and followers. �ê’_So whoever came after them were callers to Allah in conformity with this Salafiyyah.
Due to this Salafiyyah does not depend on anything except the texts. �ê’_So all of the statements and actions of the people, the scale upon which they are weighed according to us are two, The Qur’an & the Sunnah and The Consensus. �ê’_So whoever conforms with a text or with the consensus, then it is accepted. �ê’_Whoever opposes the text or consensus then that which he has come with from statement or action is rejected whoever he may be.
As for the Salafee methodology it is: �ê’_Following all of that which has come from Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessing be upon him) and clinging to that in statement and action. �ê’_This is the Salafee Methodology. �ê’_It is the Salafee way. �ê’_It is the path of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah.
