The mistake of referring to the Salafee’s as Salafee Jadeedah


Shaykh Ahmed An-Najmi was asked:
Q. Is there such a thing as Salafiyah Jadeedah (new) and Salafiyah Qadeemah (old) or is there just one Salafiyah?

A. There is only one Salafiyah, the one who claims that there is an old and new Salafiyah has lied. If we contemplate over the Aqeedah (creed, belief) of the Salaf from the time of the Sahaabah (companions of the Prophet) to our time today, we find it to be one Aqeedah, never contradicting each other. Even if they differed in the subsidiary legislations which are not from the fundamentals and beliefs, then surely they disagree in this (subsidiary legislations). Not one of them belittles the other. This was the way of the Sahaabaah, may Allah the Most High be pleased with them all. As for the beliefs, then their manhaj (methodology) in this regard is one from the time of the Sahaabaah until now.
