These are a few short words in clarification of the belief of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah. It is necessary to write them down due to the separation and differing that the Islamic lives through today, which is represented by the abundance of contemporary sects and different groups. Every one of the calls to their (own) creed and praises his (own) group, until the ignorant Muslim is confused as to whom he should follow and who he should imitate…
Therefore, at this point it is binding upon us to become acquainted with this blessed group that represents the true Islam – may Allah make us from them. So that those who want to learn about the correct Islam can learn about it and so that they can become acquainted withe its people, which will allow them to take them as an example and traverse in their footsteps. This will also allow those who want to embrace Islam from the disbelievers to attach themselves to this group.
