Can someone please outline the main salafi groupings for me please.
I've been going over material at Troid and they seem to consider a lot of individuals who are labelled as salafis by sunnis as not being salafis.
It doesn't seem like just a simple saudi/jihadi salafi split.
Bilal Phillips doesn't strike me as al-qaeda type.

usually the jihadi sites are filled with articles on who the real 'salafi's are - as opposed to the 'fake' ones.... and no, i won't tell you which sites!

There's many different kinds of "Salafis"
Alot of the "jihadist movements" are radicalized splinter versions of Salafi thought.

The different versions of Salafis I know, are :
a) Pathless - deniers of Fiqh,Ijma,Qiyas , who come from India & Pakistan,etc. These people wear the label of salafi in saudia, to take out riyal. Some examples are the "Lashkar-e-Tayyiba", Talibur Rahman Zaidi(shia), Zubair Ali zaee, Touseefur Rahman (AKA Touseef bongaa), Meraj Rabbani ( Aka Meraj Khubani AKA Puncture wala). etc. etc.
b) The madkhalis like followers of saleh ibn fawzan, Allama Nasiruddin alalbani(RA), etc. These people, although beleive in fiqh, but no way the fiqh hanafi. They are the deniers of Absolute Taqleed.(Taqleed Mutlaq).
c) The Jihadi Salafis : so far, these are the least unfriendly people I've found(duh), these people do not curse others,just stay on their madhab(of la madhabiyah), and join with deobandi, Shami, Yemeni etc. Mujahideen. Some people try to include Sheikh Salman al-awdah in the same category, but Im not sure if he is one of them.
d) Wahabis : often mistaken as "Salfis" , these people are followers of Fiqh hanbali, but their inclinement on the difference is more towards Sheikhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah(RA), Ibnal Qayyim(RA) and ofcourse, Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Abdul wahab Al-Najdi, etc...
Aside from them, there are many other smaller groups, like "Athari", Jamatul Muslimeen, Ghuraba-e-Ahle-Hadeeth, Firqa thanaiyah, etc. etc. etc......
did I miss anything?
