The Methodology of the Saved Sect

[1] The Firqatun-Naajiyah (the Saved-Sect) is that which adheres to the
Minhaj (the clear and manifest way) of Allah’s Messenger during his lifetime,
and to the Minhaj of the Companions [7] after him. This Minhaj being clearly
defined in the Noble Qur'aan and explained in the authentic Sunnah, as the
Prophet said:

“I am leaving among you two things, which if you cling to, you will never go
astray: The Book of Allah and my Sunnah. The two will not separate from each
other, until you meet me at the Pool (Hawd).” [Related by al-Haakim from Abu
Hurairah,. Authenticated by al-Albaanee in Takhreejul-Mishkaat (no.186)]

[2] The Saved-Sect returns to the Word of Allah and His Messenger whenever there
is disagreement or difference of opinion among themselves, and those acting upon
the saying of Allah - the Most High: “If you differ in anything amongst
yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you do believe in Allah and
the Last Day. This is best and most suitable for final determination.” [Soorah
an-Nisaa’ (4): 59]

And Allah - the Most High - also says: “But no, by your Lord! They cannot have
any faith until they make you (the Messenger) a judge in all disputes that they
have between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decision,
but accept them with full submission.” [Soorah an-Nisaa’ (4): 65]

[3] The Saved-Sect does not give precedence to the word of anyone over the Word
of Allah and His Messenger, acting upon the saying of Allah:

“O you who believe! Do not put yourselves forward before Allah and His
Messenger, and have Taqwaa of Allah. Indeed, Allah is all-Hearing, all-Seeing”
[Soorah al-Hujaraat (49): 1]

Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) said: “I fear that stones will descend
upon you from the sky, that I say to you that the Messenger of Allah said; and
you say to me that ‘Abu Bakr and Umer say something else’.” [Related by Imaam
Ahmed (no.3121), al-Khateeb in al-Faqeeh wal-Muttafaqqih (1/145) and Ibn
Abdul-Barr in Jaami’ Bayaanul Ilm (2/196), from Sa’eed ibn Jubayr]

[4] The Saved-Sect values Tawheed: and that is to single-out Allah alone in
worship, in supplication (Duaa), in seeking aid and assistance, in seeking
refuge in times of ease or hardship, in sacrificing and making vows, in placing
total reliance and trust in Him and in judging by what Allah has revealed; and
in all other forms of worship. This is the only basis upon which true Islaamic
society is based. It is therefore essential to remove shirk (associating
partners with Allah) and its manifestations, since this is a requirement of
Tawheed. And victory is not possible when Tawheed is neglected, nor can shirk be
fought with its like. And we are to follow in this, the examples of the
“Verily to every nation We have sent a Messenger (proclaiming)
‘Worship Allah (alone) and avoid the Taghoot (False gods)’.” Soorah an-Nahl
(16): 36

[5] The Saved-Sect revive the Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger in their Ibaadah
(worship), Sulook (behavior) and in their lives, thus becoming strangers amongst
the people - as Allah’s Messenger (May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon
him) said:

“Islam started as something strange and will return as something strange (as it
began), so Toobaa (a tree in Paradise) is for Strangers.” [Related by Imaam
Muslim in his Saheeh (2/175-176) and Ibn Majah (2/320) from Abu Hurairah]

In another narration: “ Toobaa is for the Strangers. Those who correct and
put right what the people have corrupted.”

Related by Abu Amr ad-Daanee in as-Sunanul -Waaridah fil-Fitan (1/25) and al-Aajurree
in al-Ghurabaa (p.15-16), by Ibn Masood. Sheikh al-Albaanee authenticated it in
as-Saheeah (3/267)

[6] The Saved-Sect does not have bigoted adherence to the saying of anyone,
except the saying of Allah and the saying of his infallible Messenger, who does
not speak from his own desires. see Soorah an-Najm (53): 1-4

As for any other person - however elevated in rank - then he errs and makes
mistakes, according to the Messenger’s saying: “All the children of Aadam err
and commit mistakes, but the best of those who make mistakes are those who turn
in repentance.” [Reported by at-Tirmidhi (no.2399), Ibn Majah (no.4251) from
Anas. Authenticated by al-Albaanee in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Majah (no.3428)]

Imaam Maalik (May Allah have Mercy on him) said: “There is no one after the
Prophet except that you can take his saying or leave it.” [Related by Ibn Abdul-Haadee
in Irshaaus-Saalik (227/1)]

Delighted with the beauty of this saying, Taqeeud-Deen as-Subkee said in al-Fataawaa
(1/148): “These words are originally those of Ibn Abbaas and Mujaahid, from whom
Maalik took and became famous for them.” Imaam Ahmed also took this saying from
them, as Abu Dawood relates in his Masaa’il Imaan Ahmed (p.276): “I heard Ahmed
say: There is no one, except that his opinion is taken or abandoned, except the
Prophet (May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him)

[7] The Saved-Sect are the Ahlul-Hadeeth (the People of Hadeeth), about whom the
Prophet Muhammed (May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah victorious and steadfast upon
the truth, those who abandon them will not harm them, until the command of Allah
comes about.” [Related by Muslim in his Saheeh (6/52-53) and Abu Dawood in his
Sunan (2/202) from Thawbaan]

He also said: “This knowledge will be carried by the trustworthy ones of every
generation. They will expel by it the alterations made by those going beyond
bounds, the false claims of the liars and the false interpretations of the
ignorant.” [Related by Ibn Asaakir and authenticated By al-Albaanee in his
checking of Mishkat (no.248)]

He also said: “Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred
years one who will revive His religion.” [Reported by Abu Dawood (3/4278), al-Haakim,
at-Tabaraanee in al-Ausat. Authenticated by al-Albaanee in as-Saheeah (2/150)]

[8] The Saved-Sect love and honor the mujtahid Imaams (those scholars who are
able to extract rulings from the Book and the Sunnah). However they do not
blindly follow any of them. On the contrary, they take fiqh (rulings) from the
Qur'aan and the Sunnah, upon the understanding and the sayings of all the
scholars - if it is in agreement with the authentic Hadeeth. Indeed, this is in
agreement with their saying.....

Imaam Abu Haneefah (d.150H) - rahimahullah - said: “If a Hadeeth is found to be
authentic, then that is my madhab.” Related by Ibn Aabideen in al-Haashiyah
(1/63)and also in Rasmul-Muftee (1/4)

Imaam Maalik (d.179H) - rahimahullah - said: “Indeed I am only a man. I am
sometimes mistaken and at other times correct; so look into my opinion. All that
agrees with the Book and the Sunnah, accept it, and all that does not agree with
the Book and the Sunnah, then abandon it.” Related by Ibn Abdul-Barr in al-Jaami
(2/32) and Ibn Hazm in Usoolul-Ahkaam (6/149)

Imaam ash-Shafiee - rahimahullah - (d.204H) said: “Everything that I say, for
which there is something authentically related from the Prophet contrary to my
saying, the Hadeeth of the Prophet comes first. So do not make Taqleed
(blind-following) of me.” Related by Ibn Abee Haatim in al-Aadaab (p.93) and Ibn
Asaakir in Tareekh Dimashq (15/9/2)

Imaam Ahmed - rahimahullah - (d,241H) said: “Do not make Taqleed
(blind-following) of me, nor make Taqleed of Maalik, nor of ash-Shafiee, nor of
al-Awzaa’ee, nor of ath-Thawree. But take from where they took.” Related by Ibn
al-Qayyim in I’laamul-Muwqi’een (2/302)

[9] The Saved-Sect orders the good and forbids the evil. Thus it renounces the
innovative ways and destructive parties and groups which split the Ummah, as
Allah - the Most High - orders,

“Let there arise from you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islaam),
enjoining all that is right and forbidding what is wrong. These are the ones who
will achieve success.” [Soorah al-Imraan (3):104]

[10] The Saved-Sect reject those laws which are man-made when they contradict
the judgment of Islaam. Rather, it calls to the judgment by the Revelation, that
Allah revealed for the happiness and benefit of mankind, as Allah advises His
Messenger, “And so judge (you O Muhammed) between them by what Allah has
revealed and follow not their vain desires.” [Soorah al-Maidah (5): 49]

Only Allah knows what will reform the people. So His Law is firm and constant,
it will not alter for the rest of time, nor does the passage of time alter its
values. In reality the misfortune, lowliness and humiliation the Muslim nation
suffers is because the abandoned the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His
Messenger. And nothing will make the Muslims strong again except by them
returning to the teachings of Islam - both individually and collectively, acting
upon the saying of Allah,

“Indeed, never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change
themselves.” [Soorah ar-Rad (13):11]

[11] The Saved-Sect call the Muslims collectively to Jihaad in the path of Allah
- which is obligatory upon every Muslim in accordance with his ability and
strength. And Jihaad comprises the following:

(a) Jihaad with the tongue and the Pen: to call the Muslims as well as
non-Muslims to the adherence to the true and correct Islaam, starting with the
concept of Tawheed free from all forms of shirk; as the Prophet warned: “The
Hour will not be established until a group from my Ummah will follow the
mushriks, and large groups of my Ummah will worship idols.”

Related by Abu Dawood (no.4252), Ibn Majah (no.4000) and al-Haakim (4/448-449).
Refer to Tahdheerus-Saajid (p.139) of Shaykh al-Albaanee

(b) Jihaad with wealth: and it is to give wealth for the propagation of Islam by
the establishment of Islamic Institutions, building libraries and the printing
of authentic Islamic books, so as to make guidance easily available for those
who wish to acquire it. It also consists of the distribution of funds to the
weak Muslims to incline their hearts and to strengthen them. It also consists of
providing the mujaahideen with food, clothing and other requirements.

(c) Jihaad with Oneself: it consists of fighting and participating in battle for
the victory of Islam, such as the Word of Allah is made uppermost, whilst the
word of kufr (disbelief) is debased and made low.

It has been narrated by Abu Moosa (May Allah be pleased with him), that a man
came to the Prophet Muhammed (May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him)
and asked, “A man fights for war booty, another fights for fame and a third
fights for showing off, which of them fights in Allah’s cause?” The Prophet
replied, “He who fights that Allah’s Word be superior, fights in Allah’s Cause.”
Reported in Saheeh al-Bukhari (vol.4, no.65) and Saheeh Muslim

And the noble Messenger pointed to these three forms of Jihaad in his saying,
“Make Jihaad against the mushriks with your wealth, your selves and your

Related by Abu Dawood (no.2504) from Anas. Authenticated by al-Albaanee in
Saheeh Abu Dawood (no.2186)


[7] Anyone who saw the Prophet Muhammed (May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be
upon him) while being a Muslim and died upon Islam is a Sahaabee.{see Saheeh

There is no worthy of worship exept ALLAH and Mohammed is his messenger
