Re: URGENT: ex-salafi NEED HELP!!!!
I have given it a lot of thought over the past few months and I feel that all of this is just unnecessary confusion.
Like I said it's very clear and apparent from the previous posts that there is an insane deobandi / barelwi split with all of these "traditional Islam" forums and I simply can not accept that there is a valid difference of opinion on the matters that they disagree about.
I'm not into any sects, however I do honestly believe that if we want to look at an example to practice Islam by then we should look back to the original practice of Islam by the companions, tabieen and taba'tabien may Allah be pleased with them.
I don't care what 'group' this puts me in but this is what I believe to be truth, I think the hadeeth regarding differences and clinging to the sunnah is most applicable to this era especially may Allah save us from misguidance and arrogance.
With regards to fiqh I do feel it is essential to learn from a particular madh`hab and with regards to aqeedah I believe we shouldn't go beyond what the salaf went by and simply state what rasul Allah stated regarding anything and not even think about it or delve into it because it is a massive source of fit`nah and deviation for many people.
I think the thing most people are lacking is good etiquette and manners. May Allah guide those who have gone down a path of misguidance and innovation and may He rectify and set aright their affairs. Ameen.
May Allah guide me and all of us to the straight path and keep us firm upon it, ameen.
