Some Misguided People: They are Muslims, but not on the straight path

Ibn al-Qayyim said, "The jihaad with decisive proofs [from the Book and the Sunnah] and the tongue takes precedence over the jihaad with the sword and the spear." [Al-Jawaab us-Saheeh of Ibn Taymiyyah (1/237)].

Muhammad bin Yahyaa adh-Dhuhlee said, I heard Yahyaa bin Yahyaa saying, "Defence of the Sunnah is more superior than Jihaad in the path of Allaah." So I said, "A man spends his wealth, tires his body and strives (in jihaad), so is this one (still) better than him? He said, "Yes, by many times!" [Dhammu ul-Kalaam of al-Harawi].

Imaam Abu Ismaa'eel al-Ansaari said: "whilst in Haraah: 'The sword was put to my neck five times [and each time] it was not said to me, 'Leave your madhhab' but it was said to me, 'Remain silent about those who are in opposition to you'. So I would say, 'I will not remain silent'." [Aadaab us-Sharee'ah (1/207) of Ibn Muflih al-Maqdisi al-Hanbali].

Al-Humaidee, the Shaikh of al-Bukhaaree said, "By Allaah, that I war against those who reject the Hadeeth of the Messenger ((may Peace Be Upon Him)) is more beloved to me than that I should war against the same number of Non-Muslims." [Al-Harawi in Dhamm ul-Kalaam].

Misguided Individuals

Dr. Saeed Ramadan al-Buti: Numerous refutations against al-Buti who tries, by cleverly devised arguments, to nullify the way of the Salaf, claiming that Salafiyyah was only a short and historical period of time.

Nuh Ha Mim Keller: A lot of his writings are directed towards attacking and nullifying the way of the Salaf us-Saalih. Pseudo-Intellectualism at its worst.

Hasan Ali Saqqaf: Arch-Liar and Reviler of the Companions of Allaah's Messenger, Saqqaf has sworn hatred of the creed and methodology of the Salaf and its carriers.

Zahed al-Kawthari: The Reviler of the Companions and Ahl us-Sunnah.

Hisham Kabbani: One of the Dajjals of this time. A persistent and unabating slanderer of the scholars of Ahl-us-Sunnah and their creed and methodology.
