Published by Aqsa Publications, UK.
A Concise guide to the Salafi Movement
2nd Edition : Revised & Expanded.




Description :

Albani and his friends is a concise guide and critique to the modern day salafi (wahhabi) movement. It is one of the most detailed and well researched books discussing the Salafi movement and their many aberrations to date. The book is ordered alphabetically dealing with more than a dozen high ranking Salafi scholars. It begins with an excellent discussion of the classical term salaf and salafi by the Syrian jurist and theologian Dr. Muhammad Sa'id Ramadan al-Buti (taken from his book Non-Madhabism is the gravest Innovation (bid'ah) threatening Islamic Law).

The book discusses amongst others the following topics:

    *     The Classical understanding of the term Salaf and Salafi,
    *     A Concise guide to famous Salafi scholars and their aberrations,
    *     The Attributes of Allah,
    *     Issues connected to the Prophet, may Allah bless him & grant him peace,
    *     Doctrinal issues,
    *     Legal issues and salafi misinterpretations,
    *     Ambiguous verses in the Qur'an.  

Contrary to the Salafi approach to the critiquing genre, Dr. Gibril Haddad has excelled in producing one of the most excellent and beneficial books yet on the topic. An indispensable guide for all seeking true understanding of traditional Islam.

Updates in new edition 

    * Fully footnoted (contrary to end notes in previous edition),
    * New personalities added such as Ihsan Ilahi Zaheer and Hammad al-Ansari.
    * All references have been updated including book editions and weblinks.
