In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.


Imam Ibn Al-Qayyum rahimullah said in his famous Qasedah Nooniyyah "Oh you who have hatred and abuse the Ahlul Hadeeth, glad tidings to you for your friendship with Shaytaan." (al-Kaafiyya ash-Shaafiyyah Fee Intisaar al-Firqatun-Naajiyyah pg.99)


Imam Adh-Dhahabee (d.748H)"It is authentically related from ad-Daaraqutnee that he said: There is nothing more despised by me than 'ilmul-kalaam (innovated speech and theological rhetoric). I say: No person should ever enter into 'ilmul-kalaam, nor argumentation. Rather, he should be SALAFEE (a follower of the Salaf)." [Siyar 16/457]


Imam Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani (d. 852H)Stated al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr about Abu Amr Ibn as-Salaah, "He was extremely strong and given to devotion, SALAFI in the generality (of his affairs)…"[Siyaar 23/142]


Abu Ismaa'eel Abdur Rahmaan bin Ismaa'eel as-Saboonee (d.449H) wrote a book titled, 'Aqeedatus-Salaf Wa Ashaabul Hadeeth' in it he says, "The Ahlul Hadeeth have the Aqeedah, they testify Allaah The Glorious is above the seven heavens upon his Throne." (Aqeedatus-Salaf Ashaabul-Hadeeth pg.14)


Imaam al-Asbahaanee (d.535H) - rahimahullaah - said: "The sign of Ahlus-Sunnah is that they follow the Salafus-Saalih and abandon all that is innovated and newly introduced into the Deen." [Al-Hujjah fee Bayaanil Mahajjah 1/364]


Abu Haneefah (d. 150H) (rahimahullaah) said: "Adhere to the athar (narration) and the tareeqah (way) of the Salaf (Pious Predecessors) and beware of newly invented matters for all of it is innovation" [Reported by As-Suyootee in Sawn al Mantaq wal-Kalaam p.32]


lbn Taymiyyah (d.728H) - rahimahullaah - said: "There is no criticism for the one who proclaims the way (madhdhab) of the Salaf, who attaches himself to it and refers to it. Rather, it is obligatory to accept that from him by unanimous agreement (Ittifaaq) because the way (madhdhab) of the Salaf is nothing but the Truth (Haqq)." [Majmoo al-Fataawaa 4:149]
