I honestly don't know. People are too tolerant of salafis. As long as the west keep buying Saudi oil, Saudi will still export wahhabism every where.

salafis/wahhabis believe in 3 division of tauhid. i think, this is unique to them only.

thus, the best way to refute them is to prove this division of tauhid into 3, is one of the bigger innovation in aqeedah, if not the biggest, ever made in history.

does it really purify one's tauhid? idk.

or

is it just a mechanism to make halal the blood of other ahli qiblat and their properties/women too? idk.  i'm not a scholar.

but i do believe, now (more than ever) is a good time to "fastabiqul khairat...."

Imam Ali (r.a) teached the correct tawheed. Every Muslim follow that. Yes division of Tawheed is a innovation from Ibn Taymiyyah. It cannot even be divided because it overlaps and is contrary to the meaning of Tawheed.

Why not brother?

Is there a common understanding of whats haqq when it comes to saudi and wahabism/salafism? If theres not, why do you remain silent?

Because people are quick to jump to conclusions. It needs tackle and patience to talk to them. The way things are is really ugly if you hold a different position. Send me a Private Message

Yes. That's what I meant. I may not have expressed in the correct manner.

Will Salafi export funded by Saudi Arabia overtake Traditional Sunnism? Are the traditional Sunnis too weak to confront the wahhabi menace? Will salafism become the mainstream Sunni Islam in a few years? What is your thoughts on this and why.

In an age of individuality where one is motivated to use his own mind it's hard to defend the consideraton of only the Four Madahib being legal as if they were sent from heaven.

The rule that there are only Four Madahib and that one is obliged to follow only one madhab in particular is based on nothing and just implemented by some Turkic rulers once in time to controll the masses.

At the other hand Salafism is promoting to do ijtihad but ironically doing ijtihad will probably lead people to other sects or thoughts than Salafism,

Salafism promotes ijtihad as a way to mock mainstream sunnism while Salafism is in fact based on a very strict methodology to Judge matters as well. I believe it's the most textual and less rational sect of all.

Salafism nor sunnism are not able to satisfy the needs of the critical thinker.

I was wondering if the lack of formal hierarchy within Sunni Islam (specifically Salafist/Wahhabist branches) leads to inconsistent theology and even extremism. Unlike the Shia, they do not have Ayatollah al-Uzma, etc. 

 

An analogy within Christianity would be the difference between Catholics and Anabaptists, with the latter operating in a free and unconstrained way, with little formal authority. This also gives Anabaptists (protestants) a certain advantage in that they can raise funds, find followers, and set up places of worship, without having to "get permission" so to speak.

Yes I wondered that once. Sunnis are the only ones without central leadership so everyone kinda do whatever they want.

    • 24- When the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following verse, ‘O ye who believe! When ye consult the Messenger in private, spend something in charity before your private consultation..’ I had a gold coin. I sold it for ten Dirhams and gave it away in charity before my private consultation with God’s Prophet (MGB). I swear by God that none of the companions of the Prophet (MGB) did that either before or after me. Then the Honorable the Exalted God revealed the following verse to the Prophet, ‘Is it that ye are afraid of spending sums in charity before your private consultation (with him)? If, then, ye do not so, and God forgives you, then (at least) establish regular prayer; practise regular charity; and obey God and His Apostle. And God is well-acquainted with all that ye do.’ Is it not that ‘and God forgives you’ refers to a sin committed for which God forgives them. 25- I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘Paradise is forbidden for the Prophets to enter before I enter it, and it is forbidden upon the Trustees to enter before you enter it. O Ali! The Blessed the Sublime God has given me glad tidings about you which He has not given to any of the Prophets who came before me. He has given me glad tidings that you will be the Master of the Trustees and your two sons Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein (MGB) will be the two Masters of the Youth in Paradise on the Resurrection Day.’ 26- My brother Ja’far will be adorned with two wings made of pearl, ruby and chrysolite and fly along with the angels in Paradise.  27- My uncle Hamzih will be the Master of the Martyrs in Paradise. 28- God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘The Blessed the Sublime God has given me a promise about you which will be fulfilled. God has established me as a Prophet and has established you as a Trustee. Soon you shall experience from my nation the same treatment which Moses (MGB) experienced from Pharaoh. However, be patient and consider it to be from God until you see me again. I am the friend of your friends and I consider your enemies to be my enemies.’ 29- Indeed I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘O Ali! You are the Owner of the Heavenly Pool . No one else will own it. Then some people will come to you and ask for water. You will turn them down and say that there is not even a sip of water. They will return with a black face. Then my followers and yours will enter. You will say, ‘return while satiated with water.’ They will return with a white face.’ (To be continued.........)
