Feeling hesitant about saying I am Salafee

Hits: 0

[14] Question: Some of the youth feel hesitant to say “I am Salafee”, so what is your advice with regard to this?

Why does he feel hesitant?! Does he hold that ascribing oneself to Salafiyyah is degrading?! Is it not an ascription to the Companions of Allaah’s Messenger and those who follow them from among the scholars, the Fuqahaa, the Muhadditheen, the Mufassireen – the upholders of the authentic Creed in every era and in every location, those who follow the truth from the Book of Allaah and from the authentic Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger according to the understanding of the Pious Predecessors?!! Is ascribing oneself to these individuals so degrading that he should feel hesitant about it?! Verily to Allaah do we belong and to Him we will return.
But as for the one who follows the Methodology of the Salaf and agrees with it, saying “I am Salafee”, this person, by Allaah’s Will, we hope good for him. But if he feels hesitant about doing this, then he may be held accountable for this hesitancy.
