The Da'wah & Manhaj of the Prophet was Clear! Those who truly follow the Prophet are upon clarity; the un-truthful hate clarity (http://www.salafyink.com/aqeedah/Dawah_Manhaj_Clear1434.pdf) ------> http://www.salafyink.com/aqeedah/Dawah_Manhaj_Clear1434.pdf (http://www.salafyink.com/aqeedah/Dawah_Manhaj_Clear1434.pdf)


Shaikh Muhammad ibn Ramzaan Al-Haajiree (hafidhahullaah) - in his sharh of Imam Ahmad's Usool-us-Sunnah - asked why Imam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) warned against bid'ah and sitting with and arguing with people of bid'ah in the very first paragraph of his book Usool-us-Sunnah. Then Shaikh Ramzaan answered his own question.

"The answer: He was following Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). What did the Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) say in Khutbat al-Hajjah? In the beginning of his khutbah, he warned against people of bid'ah and innovations in the religion. And this is a proof for al-WudooH, being clear in the Religion - from the very beginning, from the onset.

If the person sits with you, and from the first time he knows what you're upon, and he knows what you're about. We don't have any hidden agenda, nor do we have secret meetings or secret beliefs, or something that we don't teach to the general people. What we say here, we say on the minbar, on television, the radio, the Nidaa, the newspapers, the internet, in small gatherings, in large gatherings. [This is] WudooH, clarity. And with regards to our writings. And likewise, Imam Ahmad in the very beginning of his writing, he said:

'The foundations of the Sunnah with us are:

1- Holding fast (firmly) to what the Sahaaba were upon

2- To abandon all bid'ah

3- To not sit with the people of desires

4- To abandon all argumentation and debating in the Religion.'

Right from the very beginning, so you can understand where he is coming from and know what he is upon. After hearing that, a person will not stay with him unless he's a person of the Sunnah. And the people of bid'ah run from the people of the Sunnah.

A person may [know] a person of bid'ah for a year or two years or 10 years, and he still doesn't know what he's upon. But as for the Sunni, from the very first sitting, you know what he's upon. And because of this, from one sitting with the Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), the person would change. To the extent, that it would be said that he left with a different face than the one he came with.


Because the da'wah of the Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) was clear from the very first sitting. And like this was Minhaj An-Nuboowa (the Prophetic methodology of the Prophet, salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). I advise myself and then you to follow the manhaj of the Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) with its clarity.

Related to this, clarity is difficult. And the person cannot bear this except the one who is truthful and sincere to Allaah, 'Azza wa Jall (The Mighty and Majestic). The person who plays about doesn't like clarity. Why? Because it will cut off certain objectives, benefits he seeks to gain, and clarity will prevent him from obtaining those things that he desires, such as followers or people around him, or things from the dunya`, or some other things. But if he was tamayu' or soft regarding certain issues, maybe he would benefit by getting more followers or things from the dunya`. Or if he had more than one face (maybe he would benefit by getting more followers or things from the dunya`).

The Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) warned us and said: Beware of the one with two faces. So what about the people of today who may have 100 faces? Do you know the opposite of the one who has 100 faces? The Sunni, Salafee has one face. And you know this from the very first time you see him. And everybody knows that this individual is a Salafee. But the person who has many faces, each group says, 'he is from us.' And nobody can actually categorize this person. And the people don't know the reality of this individual.

From the very first time the Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saw Dhul-Khwaisrah - the Kharijee - he (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) foretold that the Khawaarij will come from the spine, from the offspring (ideology) of this individual. He (salallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) explained who this person was and warned against him. Not only did he classify him, he explained who this individual was, and the misguided sect that would come from the offspring of this individual. And he warned against this individual, his characteristics, and his followers, and even their worship and specific characteristics of these individuals. From the very first sitting. From one sitting.

Mu'adda came to the mother of the believers, 'Aa`ishah (radiallaahu 'anha), and asked a question but the way of her question and manner of her question was not the questioning of a Sunni: 'Why does al-Haa`idh (the menstruating woman) make up the fast but not the salat?'

And when 'Aa`ishah heard the manner of this question - from the first sitting - she answered the question with a question and she classified her with this question: A`aa harooriyah Antee (Are you from the harooriyah (the Khawaarij])? And Mu'adda's answer showed that she was not ignorant of this misguided group that existed at that time. Why? Because warning against Ahlul-Bid'ah was from the manhaj at that time.

So 'Aa`ishah (radiallaahu 'anha) left the question related to fiqh, and answered the issue related to Manhaj. So even though this question was related to menstruation and salat, 'Aa`ishah dealt with the issue of minhaj. So we don't leave off issues of minhaj even in questions related to Fiqh.

This is clarity and WudooH!

And this is why Imam Ahmad began with this statement right away."
