'To Say Ahlus-Sunnah Are Soft But Salafees Are Harsh is Ignorance' - Dr Sharaf Gbadebo

Monday 21-Jan-2019, 3:57PM / 1070

Translation: Abu Ubayy Sharif Hamzah 

Questioner: Who is a Salafee? How can one become a Salafee?

Dr Sharaf: Firstly, Salafee, Sunni and like terms are the same. They are people who follow the Sunnah.

Ahlus-Sunnah is also called Salafiyyah, Firqatun Naajiyah, Taaifatun Mansoorah. Can you understand? That is the fact. 

But for you to differentiate between Ahlus-Sunnah and Salafiyyah shows you are ignorant.

There is no difference between Ahlus-Sunnah and As-Salafiyyoon. For you to say: 'Ahlus-Sunnah are those who are soft and Salafiyyah is always hot.' That is a big ignorance.

That is it.
