Answer:

 

What is Salafi?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: what is meant by: ``Salafi `aqeedah``

The literal meaning of the Arabic term Salaf would mean those people who went before us, or those things which happened before us; as opposed to Khalaf which would mean those people who will come after us or those things which will be done in the future.

 

When one claims that one follows the salafi aqeedah, what they mean to imply is that they follow the aqeedah or belief of all the righteous slaves of Allah who went before them, which include the Prophet (saws), his noble companions (r.a.), and all the righteous scholars and jurists who existed in times prior to their own. They do not associate or align themselves with any individual school of thought, but rather they claim to seek guidance and take advantage of the knowledge of all the great scholars and jurists and imams of all the schools of thoughts that have passed away.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
