Shaykh Al-Fawzaan said, “What has been mentioned by some (concerning Salafi scholars holding dialogues between themselves in which they refute each other)…does not take place between the trustworthy scholars.
It may have taken place among the students and enthusiastic youth(1) and we ask Allah for guidance for them.
We ask them to leave this disgraceful action and unite on birr and taqwaa and return back to the people of knowledge and learn the manhaj of Ahlu Sunnah Wal Jamaah at the hands of the scholars until the truth becomes clear on them.
So the correct path becomes apparent to them and the foriegn ideas that divide their ranks do not have an effect on them and does not become a barrier between them and their scholars and the way of the Salaf As-Saalih (the righteous predecessors). The fitnah takes place amongst the Muslim youth due to listening to suspicious talk and being distant from the correct methodology.
This does not mean that you refrain from refuting the mistakes and deviations in some books and from sincere advice to the Ummah.” Ref: A lecture delivered by Shaykh Fawzaan entitled, Aqeedah Wa-Dawah
1. (My words – Abdul Kareem Ibn Ozzie) On social media and what’s app (and other similar things) some of the Salafi youth (and some Salafi adults) engage in long lenghty back and forth dialogues attempting to refute/rebuke each other concerning various Islamic issues.
