Our Da'wah

Author: Al-Allaamah Muqbil ibn Haadee al-Waadi'ee رَحِمَهُ الله


[1]: We believe in Allaah and His Names and Attributes, as they were mentioned in the Book of Allaah and in the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam), without tahreef (distortion), nor ta‘weel (figurative interpretation), nor tamtheel (making a likeness), nor tashbeeh (resemblance), nor ta’teel (denial).

[2]: We believe that calling upon the dead and seeking aid from them, and similarly with the living, in that which no one besides Allaah is capable of, is Shirk with Allaah. Likewise, believing that charms and amulets can bring about benefit along with Allaah, or without Allaah is Shirk, and carrying them without that belief is superstition.

[3]: We take the Book and the Sunnah upon their apparent meanings, and we do not perform ta‘weel, except through a proof that necessitates ta‘weel (figurative interpretation) of the Book and the Sunnah.

[4]: We believe that the Believers will see their Lord in the Hereafter, without inquiry into the modality. And we believe in the Intercession (ash-Shafaa’ah) and in the people of Tawheed being taken out of the Fire.

[5]: We love the Companions (radiyallaahu ’anhum) of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam), and we hate those who speak against them. We believe that to speak ill of them is to speak ill of the Religion, because they are the ones who conveyed it to us. And we love the Family of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) with love that is permitted by the Sharee’ah.

[6]: We love the People of Hadeeth and all of the Salaf of the Ummah from Ahlus-Sunnah.

[7]: We despise ’ilmul-kalaam (knowledge of theological rhetoric), and we view it to be from amongst the greatest reasons for the division in the Ummah.

[8]: We do not accept anything from the books of fiqh (jurisprudence), nor from the books of tafseer (explanation of the Qur‘aan), nor from the ancient stories, nor from the Seerah (biography) of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam), except that which has been confirmed from Allaah or from His Messenger (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam). We do not mean that we have rejected them, nor do we claim that we are not in need of them. Rather, we benefit from the discoveries of our Scholars and the jurists and other than them. However, we do not accept a ruling, except with an authentic proof.

[9]: We do not write in our books, nor do we cover in our lessons, nor do we give sermons with anything except the Qur‘aan, or the authentic and authoritative hadeeth. And we detest what emanates from many books and admonishers in terms of false stories and weak and fabricated ahaadeeth.

[10]: We do not perform takfeer upon any Muslim due to any sin, except Shirk with Allaah, or the abandonment of Prayer, or apostasy. We seek refuge in Allaah from that.

[11]: We believe that the Qur‘aan is the Speech of Allaah, it is not created.

[12]: We hold co-operation with any Muslim upon the truth to be obligatory and we declare ourselves free in front of Allaah from the calls of Jaahiliyyah (pre-Islaamic times of ignorance).

[13]: We do not deem it correct to revolt against the Muslim rulers as long as they are Muslims, nor do we feel that revolutions bring about reconciliation. Rather, they corrupt the community. As for the rulers of Aden, then we feel that fighting them is obligatory, until they repent from heresy, Socialism and calling people to the worship of Lenin and Marx and other than these two from those who professed disbelief.

[14]: We hold that this multiplicity of present day parties is a reason for the division of the Muslims and their weakness.
