  1. May Allah reward our shaykh Abu khadeejah for clarifying salafiyyah, articles/pdfs such as these allow one to send to his family and friends who know little about salafiyyah or have misunderstandings regarding the manhaj.

    Clear content and أسلوب which makes it easy for everyone to understand and take in.

    و الحمد لله
