Short Reply To Those Who Say: “The term ‘Salafi’ is new.”

Short Reply To Those Who Say:
“The term ‘Salafi’ is new and has come from the ‘Saudis’ or Al-Albani or ibn Abdul-Wahhab رحمهم الله
1• Imam Bukhari mentioned a chapter heading in his ‘Saheeh’:
Chapter: What the Salaf used to store in their homes and their journeys from food and meat.’
‘2• AbdurRahmaan bin ‘Amr al-Aawza’i (d.156 A.H.) said:
‘Be patient upon the Sunnah, stop where the Companions stopped, and say what they said, and keep away from what they kept away from, and follow the way of your Salaf as-Salih, since what is sufficient for them is sufficient for you.’
Collected by al-Ajurri in ash-Sharia’ (p.58)
3• Imaam adh – Dhahabee رحمه الله

(d.748H)
Said, It is authentically related from ad Daraqutnee that he said, There is nothing more despised by me than Ilmul- Kallam i.e innovated speech and rhetorics , I say
RATHER HE SHOULD BE A SALAFEE !
Siyar A’laamun- Nubalaa (16/457)
4• Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah (d.728 A.H.) -رحمه الله – said:
‘There is no blame on the one who manifests the Madhab of the Salaf, affiliates to it and ascribes to it, rather it is obligatory to accept that from him and that is accepted by agreement, because the Madhab of the Salaf is nothing except the truth.’
Majmoo al-Fatawa 4/149
