In this time of political turmoil and social upheavals, many sects claim to follow the way of the Salaf, yet their actions and what they call to are contrary to what the Salaf were upon. They entice the people with rhetoric, calling them to misguidance, leading them to the Hellfire. Thus it is imperative that the Muslim arms himself with knowledge, knowledge of what Salafiyyah is and the ability to recognise who the true Salafees really are.
Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan clarifies this subject by answering 64 questions, some dealing with contemporary issues that affect the Muslims today and others emphasising the distinguishing traits of Salafiyyah. Although many of the questions deal with contemporary matters, the Shaykh answers them by referring back to the Book, the Sunnah and the way of the Salaf, reminding the reader of the statement of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam): “Upon you is to keep to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly-guided Caliphs, hold tightly to that, and clamp down on that tightly with your back molar teeth.”
