THE SALAFI IQ TEST

As we have already agreed upon in former discussions, we [The Wahhabi Threat team and supporters] and the Wahhabis both claim to take our understanding of this religion not only from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, but also the understanding of the first three generations and the well-known revivers of the deen that inherited the Prophetic knowledge after them and revived it throughout every century.

[Please see the article, THE TOUCHSTONE - The Guide to the Saved Sect]

We have compiled a list of most of these well-known revivers. Ibn Katheer Rahimahullah is of the opinion that many revivers can appear in one century. He writes in his al-Bidaayah wa an-Nihayah [tareekh al-Islam]:

“Every group says that their Imam is being referred to in this Hadeeth. Yet it appears, and Allah knows best, that it is comprehensive of a group of scholars from every group and from every branch of knowledge — such as Tafseer, Hadeeth, Fiqh, Arabic Grammar, the Arabic language in general, and other branches as well. And Allah knows best.”

Thus we have compiled this IQ test for the Salafi to complete, and these are very simple, but yet, fundamental questions, and at the yet of this simple excercise the Salafi can truly determine whether he is truly on the right path or the wrong path.

We will first ask some very important questions relating to the widely known revivers from the scholars who are the greatest experts in Tafseer. All the Salafi has to do is answer very honestly to get in return, a humble honest result. Yet before we do this excercise, please note the list of scholars is also after the questions, so when a certain scholar does not fit the Salafi criteria of being upon the “creed of the Salafiyyah”, the Salafi partaking in this exercise will need to cross that scholars name out.

We know that

a. Salafis are against tafweed
b. Salafis are against taweel
c. Salafis claim to know the actual meanings of Allah’s attributes

thus, we are going to go through the following questions according to the given criteria, ticking yes or no as we go along:

  2. Salafis/wahabis never think….They don’t even follow hadiths…just the hadiths their mullahs tell them to follow and they don’t ask or think or do research if the mullah is right or no!!! Also they are brainwashed to believe things which is has no root in reality…but they believe it is true cause their mullas say so,…….If they say something about a group and member of that group says it is not true at all,he/she is accused doing taqiya…..And if member of another sect come with hadith from sunni hadith which goes against their aqeeda the normal answer is ” it is fabricated”…..Typical answer from wahabis/salafis cause they are taught to say so,…….

  3. It doesn’t matter what the scholars of the past have said; how does Shaykh Al Albani, Shaykh Bin Baz, and Shaykh Uthaymeen (and sometimes Shaykh Fawzaan) understand and explain it? If those are not reference points for Salafi understanding, then it doesn’t matter what the Salaf THEMSELVES have understood!

  4. You know this is not fair, asking a Salafi to THINK! You know that all they do is follow the authentic proofs, IQ is not necessary!
