The Arkan (Pillars) Of The Saved Sect (Salafis) – Shaykh Muhammad Bazmool

Shaykh Muhammad Bazmool said, “[The arkan (pillars) of the Saved Sect (Salafis) are four]

1. Firstly, al-Ikhlaas (sincerity).

The people of The Saved Sect know that Allaah is Ar-Raqeeb (All-Watcher) and do actions only for Allaah.

Allaah said (what means): “And they were not commanded except that they should worship Allaah, purely and sincerely, singling Him out in worship (abstaining from ascribing partners to Him), and to establish the Salaat and give Zakat: and that is the upright religion.” (Al-Baiyinah, ayah 5)

The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said (what means): “I have been commanded to fight the people until they testify ‘there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.” 

2. Secondly, following the sunnah.

The Saved Sect are eager to follow the Sunnah.

Allaah said (what means): “And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad, (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)) after the right path has been shown clearly to him – and follows other than the believers’ (companions’) way – We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell. What an evil destination.” (An-Nisa, ayah 115)

Allaah said (what means): “And let those who oppose the Messenger’s (Muhammad) commandment (i.e. his Sunnah legal ways, orders, acts of worship, statements, etc.) (among the sects) beware, lest some Fitnah (disbelief, trials, afflictions, earthquakes, killing, overpowered by a tyrant, etc.) befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.” (An-Nur, ayah 63)

Allaah said (what means): “It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allaah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.” (Al-Ahzab, ayah 36)

Allaah said (what means): “But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission.” (An-Nisa`, ayah 65)

The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said (what means): “Whoever introduces or invents something into this affair (Deen) of ours, it will be rejected.”

The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said (what means): “Whoever does an action that is not in accordance with this affair (Deen) of ours, it will be rejected.”

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) said: “Do not speak about a matter except if you have an Imam preceding you [in that statement].”

And these first two foundations stem from the shahadatain. The Saved Sect know the only way to be saved from the fire is by following the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). 

The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said (what means): “I am leaving you two things, and you will never go astray as long as you cling to them – they are the Book of Allaah and my Sunnah.”

3. Thirdly, warning against bidah and its people.

The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) warned of this in every khutbah, with his statement: “Beware of the newly invented matters, for every bid’ah is misguidance…”

The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) taught the companions this.

Bidah is to (perform an act of) worship other than the way the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) taught (or to hold a believe he never taught).

This is one of the points that distinguish The Saved Sect; they warn against bid’ah and its people, and do not accept hizbiyyah (partisanship) nor cooperate with them.

Allaah said (what means): “And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad, (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)) after the right path has been shown clearly to him – and follows other than the believers’ (companions’) way – We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell. What an evil destination.” (An-Nisa, ayah 115)

‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood (radiallaahu ‘anhu) said: “Follow and do not innovate, for you have been sufficed.”

The Salaf (radiallaahu ‘anhum) used to warn against bidah, and wrote many books regarding this, such as I’teesam, Ash-Shatabee…

4. Fourthly, sticking to the Jamaah and not dividing.

And his (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) statement in the hadeeth of Al ‘Irbaad bin Saariyah (radiallaahu ‘anhu), who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) admonished us one day after the early morning prayer. The admonition was heartfelt and eloquent and caused the eyes to shed tears and the hearts to tremble. 

A man from amongst us said, ‘Certainly, it is as if this is a farewell admonition, so with what do you advise us, O Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam)? 

He replied: I advise you to fear Allaah and to listen and obey those in authority over you even if it were an Abyssinian slave. Indeed, whoever from amongst you lives long will witness much differeing. So incumbent upon you is my sunnah and the sunnah of the rightly-guided khulafaa (Caliphs) after me. Bite (hold) onto it with your molar teeth. And beware of newly invented matters (in the religion), for verily every newly invented matter (in the religion) is a bidah, and every bidah is a misguidance.”
