SALAFI GROUPS IN THE WORLD
الحمد لله رب العالمين ، والصلاة والسلام على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين
The title SALAFI is applied to those who worship a Planetary human-like-Idol and call it Allah.There are hundreds of Salafi Groups in the world. Followers of all these Groups claim that they are Muslims. However, we fail to understand their claim because every Salafi Group calls itself as 'victorious group' ( الطائفة المنصورة) and 'the saved group' (الفرقة الناجية) and accuses the other Salafi Group as apostate (Kafir). It is a very strange situation with these Groups.
Salafis remained Sky Idol worshipers throughout the history and never joined the mainstream Islam. In their zeal to establish legitimacy to their Sky Idol God, they revolted many a times and took up arms against Muslim rulers all along the history of Islam. Most glaring example of their revolt and massacre of Muslims was witnessed at the start of 19th Century whey they captured Arabian Peninsula and occupied the noble sanctuaries of Makka and Madina. To legitimize their mass Muslims killings, they imposed Quranic verses and Ahadith (which were meant for Pagan Mushrikeen-e-Makka) on Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) and Awliya Allah and declared it lawful to kill Muslims en masse and usurp their houses, lands and women in Arabian Peninsula. They did not spare even the dead Sahabah, family members of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), and important dignitaries of Islam as they have dug up over 60,000 graves of Sahabah, family members of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and important dignitaries of Islam. No one knows what they did with the pious bodies of male and female Sahabah. In one instance it is recorded that the pious grave of the mother of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) was dug and gasoline was poured and the pious body was burnt by Wahhabi unruly mobs.
Human history has seen many massacres and atrocities on living people, but no one has witnessed atrocities committed on dead, as was carried out by fanatic followers of Ibn Abd al-Wahhab. They destroyed the entire geography of Seeratun Nabi (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and entire heritage of Islam. They humiliated Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) by destroying his house in Makka where he lived 28 years with his family. Later, they built a Public Toilet. They tried to destroy the Green Dome of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and remove his pious grave from the Grand Mosque in Madina. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
People should not think that all these criminal atrocities on Islam and Muslims will go unpunished. Those who committed these unpardonable crimes, are burning in their graves and those who support it, will also burn in their graves after their deaths. There cannot be two opinions in this context.
Makkan Pagans, the Salafi ancestors, worshiped a Sky Idol God along with other Idols at the time of Advent of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). During the time of Khulfa-e-Rashidoon (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) and beyond, these pagans were known as Munafiqoon and Khawaarij. Later, they changed their identity as Salafis.
Abu Mansur al-Baghdadi said in his book 'al-Farq Bayn al-Firaq, page 11, as follows:
QUOTE - The Kharijis (Salafis) are considered legally outside Muslim Umma; therefore, they should not be prayed upon (Salatul Janaza) after death, nor does any Muslim pray behind them. Their dhabiha is haram, not halal, their marriage with a Sunni woman is invalid and a Sunni man is forbidden from marrying one of their women if she adheres to their beliefs (worship of Sky Idol God and disrespect of Prophet - صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). UNQUOTE.
It is in Quran - وَلَا تُصَلِّ عَلَىٰ أَحَدٍ مِّنْهُم مَّاتَ أَبَدًا وَلَا تَقُمْ عَلَىٰ قَبْرِهِ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ كَفَرُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَمَاتُوا وَهُمْ فَاسِقُون [And never, (O' Prophet - صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) pray (funeral prayer) for anyone of them that dies, nor stand at his Grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and died in a state of rebellion'. (at-Tauba -84).
Ibn al-Arabi al-Maliki said that the correct position is : the Kharijis ( Salafis) are disbelievers on the basis of the Hadiths of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم): "They shall leave the Religion".Taqi al-Din al-Subki said in his Fatawa: "It has been argued that the Khawarij (Salafis) are disbelievers because of their (Idol worship, and) takfir of the eminent Companions, since such an act entails disbelief of the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) testimony that they are bound for Paradise, and I consider this position as sound."
It is in Hadith - ‘A person with eyes protruding, with a long beard and head clean-shaven (named Zul-Khawaisara who was from the tribe of Banu Tamim) came to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and declared: 'O Muhammad! (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) fear Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی). ' The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) replied: ‘If I disobey Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) then who else will obey Him? I am obedient to Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) at all times and never disobedient. Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) has sent me as Amin (Honest for the entire world, but you don't accept me as an honest? A Sahabi (Hadhrat Umer - رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ ) became infuriated and sought permission to remove him from the presence of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) prevented him from doing so. After the person had left, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said: ‘From his progeny (descendants) will rise a Group (Kharijis/Salafis) who will recite the Holy Quran but it will not go below their throats. They will leave the Deen (Islam) just as an arrow leaves the bowstring. They will kill Muslims but spare the idolaters. If I ever confronted these people I would slaughter them just as the people of Aad had been destroyed'. (Mishkat, pp - 535).
We all know that Ibn Abd al-Wahhab was from the tribe of Banu Tamim. Read more.
The practice of declaring true Muslims as apostate and revolting against the central Muslim authority - the Caliphate - is the hallmark of the Khawarij and their modern counter part Salafis. They destroyed Muslim Caliphate by joining hands with Britain and killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims at the turn of 19th Century. Since the fall of the Ottoman Caliphate in 1924, the major manifestation of Kharijism, in the guise of Salafism, is to declare all true Muslims as apostates.
It is in Hadith - وكان ابن عمر يراهم شرار خلق الله وقال إنهم انطلقوا إلى آيات نزلت في الكفار فجعلوها على المؤمنين - Ibn Umar (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) considered the Khawarij and the heretics (Salafis and their like minded groups) as the worst beings in creation (meaning worst than Satan and his subordinate Shayateen), and he said : 'They went to verses which were revealed about the disbelievers (the pagans of Makka) and applied them to the Believers (Prophets, Sahabah, Awliya Allah and Muslims). (Bukhari - Chapter Khawarijeen).
This book provides detailed information about these groups. It is a very informative book for all those who are interested in this subject.

It is in Hadith - Reported by Hadhrat Abu Naim (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) in his book titled 'Huliya'. Hazrat Abu Umana Bahili (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) narrates that Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) said ‘Before Qiyamah, they (the misguided sects and their sub groups) will spread and attack bitterly like the small and large insects and whosoever witnesses this period must seek refuge in Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) (Huliya).
The above Hadith clearly states that, among the misguided groups like Salafis and their like minded, some will be very large and some will be small and they will attack the Iman (Aqeedah) of Muslims from all over the world. It is very difficult to sustain their poisonous bites (Da'wa). We seek Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) refuge from their misleading Da'wa.
It is in Hadith - Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ): Allah's Apostle ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) said, "A time will come that the best property of a Muslim will be sheep which he will take on the top of mountains and the places of rainfall (valleys) so as to flee with his religion (Islamic Faith) from afflictions." (Bukhari - Book #2, Hadith #18)
The above Hadith signifies our time when it is extremely difficult for Muslims to protect their Sahih Iman from the Da'wa campaigns of misguided Salafis, Deobandis and their like minded groups.IDENTIFICATION OF SALAFI GROUPS(i) They believe in a Sky Idol who has two hands, two eyes, one face, two legs, two shins, two feet, fingers in hands and feet, who is extremely big and sits on the sky on a big chair and walks down to first sky in the night and goes back to his seat. They call their Sky Idol as Allah ( La haula wala quwwata illah billah). They misinterpret Quranic verses and Ahadith to misguide innocent Muslims. They believe that this Idol God has sent all Apostles and all scriptures into the world. They say that their Sky God has fabricated Adam ( علیھ السلا م ) from his two hands. Salafis claim that Quran is the word of their Sky Idol God (La Haula wal Quwwata Illah Billah).
Salafi Idol worshipers have attempted to kidnap Islam and hold it at ransom using their oil wealth and power. They wrongly quote Quranic verses and Ahadith to establish the legitimacy and existence of their Sky Idol God. They claim that their Sky Idol is the real God of all creatures. They also call it Allah (La haula wala quwwata illah billah) to confuse innocent Muslims. They often quote the following Quranic verse to establish the authenticity of their pagan worship. They insist that their sky god should be addressed as 'Allah' (Astaghfiruallah). They copy paste Surah Al-Ikhlas of Quran to describe their Sky Idol.
It is in Quran - قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ - اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ - لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ - لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ [Say, He is the God (Salafis mean it their Sky Idol God), the one and only. God, the eternal. He begets not, nor is he begotten. And there is none like him. (Ikhlas 1-4).
(ii) Aggressiveness, intolerance and militancy are part of their culture. However, these characteristics are more prominent in some groups than others.
(iii) They are united in the disrespect of Prophet of Islam (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his family members, Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) and Awliya Allah. As a matter of fact every Group tries to outdo others in this respect.
(iv) They claim that Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his family members, Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) and Awliya Allah are dead in the same way as Mushrikeen-e-Makka and other Idol worshipers ( استغفر اللہ). Visiting their graves is just like visiting of Hindu Idols or Hindu graveyards. (استغفر اللہ). Therefore, whoever visits the sacred graves of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his family members, Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) and Awliya Allah for tabarruk is declared as 'Grave Worshiper' and Kafir (استغفر اللہ).
(v) They overwhelmingly support each other in destroying the graves of family members of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) and Awliya Allah because, they claim that these graves are places of dirt and apostasy ( استغفر اللہ).For them, anything or any relic related to Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his family and his Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) is extremely dirty and a source of shirk which should not be touched or kissed, rather thrown into Municipal bins ( استغفر اللہ).
It is in Quran - وَقَالَ لَهُمْ نَبِيُّهُمْ إِنَّ آيَةَ مُلْكِهِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ التَّابُوتُ فِيهِ سَكِينَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَبَقِيَّةٌ مِّمَّا تَرَكَ آلُ مُوسَىٰ وَآلُ هَارُونَ تَحْمِلُهُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ [And (further) their Prophet (علیھ السلا م ) said to them: "A Sign of his authority is that there shall come to you the Ark of the covenant, with (an assurance) therein of security from your Lord, and the relics left by the family of Moses (علیھ السلا م ) and the family of Aaron (علیھ السلا م ), carried by angels. In this is a symbol for you if you indeed have faith."] (Al-Baqara - 248).The above Quranic verse is related to Bani Israel (Jews). One of their Prophet ( علیھ السلا م ) told them that Angels will carry relics of Musa ( علیھ السلا م ) and Haroon ( علیھ السلا م ). Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) describes that these relics are sacred and important for people and a sign of security for them. The verse emphasizes that reverence and veneration of these relics is part of Faith.Ad Dhahbi a famous Salafi Scholar reported that Abdullah ibn Ahmad (the son of Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal) said: "I saw my father take a hair that belonged to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), put it on his mouth, and kiss it. I believe I saw him put it on his eyes. He also dipped it in water and drank the water to obtain cure. I saw him take the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) bowl (qas'a), wash it in water, and drink from it. I saw him drink Zamzam water in order to seek cure with it, and he wiped his hands and face with it." It is also authentically established that 'Abdullah asked is father about those who touch the pommel of the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) pulpit and touch the wall of the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) room, and he said: "I do not see any harm in it." May Allah protect us and you from the opinion of the Khawarij (Salafis, Deobandis and their like minded groups) and from innovations! (Ad-Dhahabi, Siyar A'lam al-Nubala' (9:457). Chapter on Imam Ahmad, section entitled Min Adabih).As per the above Quranic verse and Hadith reverence of relics of Prophets is part of Islamic faith.(vi) Wahhabis / Salafis and their like minded groups, say that the relics of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) are a source of Shirk and preserving them or kissing them out of reverence is also shirk. They even destroyed Prophet Mohammad's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) house in Makka where he lived 28 years with his family. One of the rooms in this house was used by Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) for Salah and Zikr in the nights, where Jibreel ( علیھ السلا م ) used to visit and sit often. As a mark of disrespect and disregard for the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), they built aon it.All above mentioned Salafi groups, including Deobandis, Tablighis, support these actions. We fail to understand what kind of people they are and what kind of Islam they follow? They are totally fearless from Hell Fire.
It is in Hadith - Narrated Abu Burda (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ): When I came to Madina, I met Abdullah bin Salam (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) . He said, "Will you come to me so that I may serve you with Sawiq (powdered barley) and dates, and let you enter a (blessed) house in which the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) entered?"… (Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 159)
The above Hadith shows the sacredness and importance of a house which was visited by Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and how much Sahabah used to respect such things. Now look at these Salafis who destroyed the house of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) in Makka where he lived 28 years, where he prayed, where Jibreel ( علیھ السلا م ) used to sit along with other dignitaries. The Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) house was so evil and bad for them that they converted it into a public toilet.It is in Hadith - Related with Abdullah bin ‘Umar (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) that he wiped his face at the place where Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) sat. (at-Tabqat al-Kubra ibn Sa’d, 1:254).Salafis attempted to destroy the Green dome and the Grave of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) along with the Graves of Abu Bakr (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) and Omer (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) many a times in the past. Deobandies, Tabhlighees and like minded groups wholeheartedly support them in these evil attempts.
(a) Ahmad bin Ali Basri states in the book ‘Faslul Khitaab fi Rad’di Dalaalati Ibn Abdil Wahab’ as follows :‘From amongst the things he (Abdul Wahab Najdi) mentioned one thing, ‘if I attain the opportunity to do so, then I will break down the Rauza of Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) .’ (Faslul Khitaab fi Rad’di Dalaalati Ibn Abdil Wahab).(b) A pamphlet published in 2007 by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, endorsed by Abdulaziz Al Sheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, and distributed at the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) Mosque,was as follows.'The green dome shall be demolished and the three graves flattened in the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) Mosque; according to Alawi, Executive Director of the London based Islamic Heritage Research Foundation. This shocking sentiment was echoed in several speeches by Ibn al-Uthaymeen, one of Saudi Arabia's most prominent Wahhabi clerics, who delivered sermons in Mecca's Grand Mosque for over 35 years: 'We hope one day we will be able to destroy the green dome of the Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) he said, in a recording provided by Al Alawi. The other sects, like Ahle Hadith, Deobandis, Jama'at-e-Islami, Tabhlighee Jama'at, etc., also say that green dome of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) should be destroyed.(vii) The same Wahhabis acted differently when the Sufi cemetery was razed by Syrian Wahhabis to make way for the University of Damascus and its campus in that city - King Abd al-Aziz Ibn Sa`ud of Saudi Arabia intervened personally to preserve intact the graves and tombs of Ibn Taymiyya and his student Ibn Kathir.
Ibn Taymiyya's Grave, near Baramkeh, Syria inside Damascus Univ. campus and behind a maternity hospital.This proves that Wahhabis are the worst enemies of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and Islam. In the guise of purifying Islam, they have actually attempted to disintegrate and destroy Islam and Muslims from the face of Earth.
(viii) They cooperate with each other in altering Ahadith books, original Islamic literature, meanings of the holy Quran and entire Islamic heritage.
They proudly say that Al-Bani has removed over 5000 Ahadith from the authentic Ahadith books like Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Nasai, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maaja, Ahmad, Muatta and others because these were against their Sky God Aqeedah. They consider all Imams of Ahadith, including Bukhari & Muslim as un-trustworthy, because, as per their claim, all Imams of Ahadith wrote concocted (Maudu) and weak Ahadith in their books. They accept only those Ahadith that have been approved (read altered) by Al-Baani.(ix) Some of these groups claim they do not follow any Imam of Fiqh. Some say they follow 'Imam Ahmad. Some of them claim they follow Iman Abu Hanifa (like Deobandis, Tabhlighees, Jamat-e-Islami, etc.).(x) The problem with Salafi Groups is they all call each other as Kafirs. There are so many commonalities between them, still they call each other as Kafirs.(xi) Some people say that Tabhlighee Jamaat, Jamat-e-Islami, Denbandi groups, Tanzeem-e-Islami etc., are Hanafis, therefore, they come under the category of Ahle Sunnah. This claim is false in view of the following facts.
(a) They accept Ibn Taymiyyah and other Salafi scholars as authentic scholar of Islam and always refer their statements, Fatawas and books in their articles and speeches.(b) They all do not celebrate Milad-un-Nabi ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) and oppose Ahle Sunnah wal Jama'a in their practices of visiting of Muslim graves and many other issues. Read important Article in this regard.(c) Their united stand is that the Green Dome of Prophet Mohammad ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) should be destroyed and three graves should be flattened to earth and removed from the Grand mosque.(d) They support Saudis' action of converting Prophet Mohammad ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) house in Makka into a.(e) They support removal of authentic Ahadith from Ahadith books of Imam Bukhari, Muslim and others. They consider Al-Bani, who has changed the entire Hadith literature of Islam, as great Islamic Scholar.(f) They accept the translation of Quran titled "Noble Quran" done by Salafis as authentic.(g) There are some differences of opinion among them, therefore, sometimes they differ with each other on some fiqh issues. But overall, their basic faith is heavily influenced by Salafi beliefs.
(i) Tabhlighees, Deobandies, Jamat-e-Islami and the like minded groups race with each other in the disrespect of Prophet ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ). Their Akabir Ulema are notoriously famous for insulting the Prophet of Islam ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ).
