What is Salafism?
I got a general idea of salafism. And I like what they're about. When you got to a Hanafi and ask him "Why are You praying Like That?" He would say "That's the way Imam Hanafi taught us" Same with others school of thoughts. However when you ask Salafi he would say "This how the our Beloved Prophet Muhammad prayed" And of course I, as a new muslim, want to pray how the Prophet and his companions prayed.
However I also noticed that most Salafi scholars say Niqab is obligatory. And of course it is nice to wear the Niqab but it's not obligatory. You do't have to cover what normally appears as it says in Surah 24 verse 31. i.e. the Face and the Hands
So is Salafism a school of thought and part of Sunnism or is it a whole different sect?Surah 24 Verse 31
...they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what normally appears...
Can someone give me an answer on this?
(P.S. If I offended any body I'm sorry)
P.P.S. I spelled salafism wrong in the title I know
