Before you is a simple 10 question survey that will keep you anonymous but gives us valuable information that will be used for an important PhD research project (being conducted by a Salafi) looking into the conversion stories of Salafis from a variety of different backgrounds. Responses from both men and women are crucial here.
Unfortunately, Salafis who adhere to the creed and methodology of Scholars such as Ibn Bāz, Al-Albānī, Ibn Uthaimīn, Muqbil Ibn Hādī, Sālih al-Fawzān, Rabee Ibn Hādi al-Madkhalī, Ahmad An-Najmī, Ubaid al-Jābirī, Muhammad Ibn Hādī (etc) who all hold to the tradition of Ahlus-Sunnah as expounded by Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Qayyim, Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhāb (etc) tend to be [incorrectly] grouped alongside other sects such as the Khārijite terrorists and Qutubīte revolutionaries because many researchers haven’t been able to grasp the differences in methodology between them due to numerous factions all claiming attachment to Sunni/Salafi Islam.
At present, there is precious little mapping the backgrounds of those who come to Salafism, so existing PhDs lack true grounded information, therefore your participation would be much appreciated. Here is our opportunity, for the first time, to study and analyse basic information related to the Salafis globally. We are sure the results will be fascinating (and will be made available once analysed). The questions are enclosed in the table below; just click into it and scroll down, answer and submit, it’s as easy as that. Invite others to join the survey too.
