Is Making One’s Madhab Salafi An Innovation? – Shaykh Al-Fawzaan

Shaykh Al-Fawzaan said, “…How can making one’s madhab(1) that of the Salaf (i.e. making you madhab the Salafi madhab), be an innovation (bidah)?

An astray innovation!

How can it be an innovation, when it is but the following of the madhhab of the Salaf and following their madhhab(2) is obligatory by the Book and the Sunnah, truth and guidance.”

Ref: Al-Bayaan p. 156


1. The word madhab here refers to ‘methodology’ (manhaj).

2. Shaykh Al-Fawzaan said, “…(What is meant by the madhab of the salaf, is the) way of the salaf (early generations) of this ummah, namely the Sahaba, Taabieen and prominent imams with regard to issues of ‘aqeedah, sound method, sincere faith and adherence to the beliefs, laws, etiquette and conduct of Islam…” Ref: Al-Muntaqa min Fataawa al-Shaykh al-Fawzaan, 1/question no. 206.
