King ‘Abdul-'Azeez giving clarification on “Wahhabism”
King ‘Abdul-‘Azeez رحمة ألله عليه said: “They have labeled us with the term ‘Wahhabiyoon’, and they have named our madhhab as ‘Wahhabee’ considering it as a specific madhhab, and this is a wicked mistake, appearing from the false propaganda which has been spread by the people of gossip. We are not the people of a new madhhab or new ‘Aqeedah, our 'aqeedah is the 'aqeedah of the rightly guided predecessors, we respect the four Imaams and we make no distinction between Maalik, Ash-Shaafi’ee, Ahmad, and Aboo Haneefah رحمة ألله عليهم , all of them are deeply respected in our view.
This ‘Aqeedah is the one that was re-established by the Shaykh of Islaam Muhammad bin ‘Abdul-Wahhaab and the one he called towards. This is our ‘Aqeedah and it is the structured ‘Aqeedah upon the Tawheed of Allaah, free from defect, far removed from any innovation.”
