Al-‘Allāmah Rabī’ bin Hādi al-Madkhalī (may Allâh protect him and take care of him) said:
The youth must have patience, wisdom, brotherhood upon the truth and cooperation upon righteousness and piety in spreading the truth which Allah guided them to.
Indeed Satan runs between the Salafi youth [causing] insignificant differences and is spreading amongst them blind fanaticism which is precisely the fanaticism of the hizbees (partisans). This is because the environment has emitted its poison thereby affecting some of the youth who have not yet digested the Salafi call.
They (the youth) have to be aware of the imminent dangers surrounding the Salafi methodology. By Allah, nowadays all the [deviant] groups along with the western countries behind them have come together to suppress Islam, as represented by the Da’wah Salafiyyah.
We cannot confront these affairs with ‘it was said and he said’, because this would result in the destruction of the Da’wah and the loss of its youth. Firstly, leave off ‘it was said and he said’, leave off defaming salafis, leave those things which provoke differences.
O brothers, I advise you with perseverance and I implore you by Allah to have mercy on the Da’wah Salafiyyah and its scholars, since they are suffering the distress caused by these actions. Leave these issues and dedicate yourself to [gaining] religious knowledge and praise Allah, Who enabled you to tread the path of the Salaf.
