Unformatted text preview: A Tremendous Fundamental Principle That Separates Ahlus-Sunnah from every other Sect www.SalafyInk.com _____________________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________________1 A Tremendous Fundamental Principle That Separates Ahlus-Sunnah from every other Sect Author: Shaikh 'Abdullaah al-Jarboo (hafidhahullaah) Source: An excerpt from his tape series of lessons under the topic Introductory Matters of Tawheed , Part 1 Translator: Abu Uwais (rahimahullaah) Transcriber: Maher Attiyeh We have discussed that guidance and knowledge must be taken from Qur`an and Sunnah (revelation from Allaah), and it is the only way to achieve knowledge of the Deen of Allaah. This is a principle that all of Ahlus-Sunnah are upon, and it is that which is known from the Deen - as they say - by necessity. What this means is that no one is allowed to deny this or reject this, or refute it. He who comes and says, "I can learn Islaam from other than Qur`an and Sunnah," or "I can learn and get guidance from other than Qur`an and Sunnah; I can get it from my 'aql (intellect)," or some other shape, fashion or form, then this person has committed kufr, exiting from Islaam.

And also the Imams of this time and before them, such as Ahmad ibnu Taymeeyah, Ibnul Qayyim, Ibn Hajar, Ibn Katheer, Imam An-Nawawee - all of them (rahimahumullaah)- were upon this principle and showed that this principle was a fundamental and most important principle. And likewise, the Imams of our times did fundamental and most important principle....
