We are Gentle With The Salafy If He Falls Into Error And We Do NOT Abandon Him Author: Shaykh Rabee’ Bin Haadee Al Madkhalee (hafithahullah) Source: Majmoo’ wa Rasaa-il ash-Shaykh 1/483 Translator: Abu Yusuf Khaleefah
Shaykh Rabee (hafithahullah) stated,
“I know that you are not infallible. Nor are the scholars infallible. We can make mistakes. By Allaah, when a person has entered into (the innovation of) the Raafidah, or the Mu’tazilah, or the Jahmiyyah, partisanship that’s present (in this day and time), indeed this is the one who is abandoned. As for the Salafi, the one who has an alliance with the Salafis, he loves the salafi methodology, -May Allaah bless you- he hates the groups (of deviance), he hates innovation and its people, this is the one who we are gentle with. We do NOT abandon him. Rather we advise him, we save him, we are patient upon him and we treat him (with gentleness). May Allaah bless you all. For (if) it (were) to be said,
“Whoever makes a mistake he is destroyed!”
Based upon this there will never remain anyone! For this you see these individuals that when they were done with the youth, they began with the Scholars, doing away with them. This is the Manhaj of The Muslim Brotherhood.”

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah who said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Islam began as something strange and will return to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.” Collected by Muslim.
Commenting on this Hadeeth Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan (hafithahullah),
“Now in these times Islaam has returned back to being strange. This is the case even if those who claim Islaam have reached millions (in number) or more. However, the correct Islaam is strange amongst those who claim Islaam; so how much more so amongst the disbelievers. The Muslim who is upon correctness is a stranger amongst those who claim Islaam. So the point (of the matter) is not based upon the large amount (of Muslims), rather it is based upon the reality (of the affairs). The Muslims who are upon the likes of that which the Messenger and His companions were upon are strangers amongst the (general masses of the) Muslims.”
