Who are Markaz Sunnah Leicester?

On the 26th September 2010, corresponding to 17th Shawaal 1431 A.H. I visited our noble Shaykh, the Muhadeeth of Makkah, Wasiullah Abbas at his house. After discussing the interest of the Salafee Dawah in Leicester, the foundations of Markaz-Sunnah, Leicester, were laid. The noble Shaykh Wasiullah chose the name and laid the foundations of it by offering his support. He gave general advice to the Salafees of Leicester to unite and propagate the Salafee Dawah.

Issues that were given great importance were:

To establish Tawheed & Sunnah in Leicester.

To refute Shirk, Bidah and its people.

To connect the people to the scholars.

To spread the Madhab of the Ahlul-Hadeeth.

To unite the ranks of the Salafees.

To meet the needs of the Muslims of Leicester.

To launch a website, print books and leaflets in support of the Salafee Dawah.

To abolish Ghuloo, Hizbiyyah, Qawmiyyah, Taqleed & Asabiyyah.

Markaz-Sunnah will remain to be a banner of Salafiyyah that will work with all those who adhere and ascribe to Salafiyyah and have a sound Manhaj, this includes all the Masaajid. Markaz Sunnah will not get involved with any of the internal issues of any Masjid and will affiliate themselves to the Manhaj of the Salaf.

Markaz-Sunnah has been established to unite the Salafees and not a new Hizb to split the Muslims but to unite them upon the Qur’an & Sunnah according to the understanding of the Salaf.

It is the responsibility of every single Salafee from Leicester to join us and co-operate with us in good and Taqwa. The Salafees of Leicester regardless of where they reside should support this noble cause under the instruction of our Sheikh.

I invite you all to come on board and help establish the Salafee Dawah in Leicester as our families and friends have a right upon us

Your brother in Salafiyyah

      fistly you advertised on your website to everyone that this big shk. is deputy mufti of Makkah.I conducted a reserch to establish the authencity of this claim.He is merely an individual amongst many who has been given permission to hold talks in the Harram by some salafi group and he is not a deputy mufti of Makkah.So please stop spreading corruption to get people to come and listen to your talks.
      This Abbassi is promoting hatred listening ot his talk and such individuals should not be allowed to enter the country.
      Couple of weeks ago there was another talk that had taken place by some pakistani who’s englsih was pathetic.
      This guy was talking along the same lines as Zulfikar taking sentences from some books and quoting that this was the belief of deobandi’s.This is not the case.
      Any individual who has been told anything should fistly check with a qualfied scholar of Deobandi school and not refer to some isolated individuals book and take references out of context and quote them.
      Be mindfull of what is being said as spreading false is corruption in the eyes of Allah.

    True salaf, ASWJ: Assalamalaikum. I am from india and i know who shaykh wasiullah abbas is. Before i comment further, i would like to adivse “true salaf” to not say anything about the scholars by doing some online research. Ask the people of knowledge if you don’t know. Your statements are very harsh and may Allah forgive you. He is an honorable shaykh with many beneficial lectures. And to know more about him, go and ask scholars and people of knowledge. Saying Abbasi and so on, brother Fear ALLAH! I was shocked at your comments. Knowledge makes a person humble, not arrogant. Astagfirullah. He is praised by many scholars and no one is infallible. I stand as proof that he is on the correct aqidah and on the correct manhaj, and if you have any problems regarding him, pls go ask people who have knowledge. May Allah guide us, really.
