All praise is for Allaah and may the peace and blessings be on His Final Messenger, his family and those who follow him in goodness until the Day of Recompense. To Proceed:
We are happy to present our most recent e-book “Magnificent Points of Advice for those who have turned to the Way of the Salaf” a complete translation of the booklet “Al-Wasaayah as-Saniyyah Lit-Taa’ibeena ilaas-Salafiyyah”, by the noble shaikh, ‘Abu ‘Abdillaah Ahmad bin Muhammad ash-Shihhee.
This is an important book since it presents, in a simple manner, some advice for those who have left the ways of deviation and misguidance and come into the fold of the Salafee Methodology. And how many there are in these days who are the seeing the reality of the Salafee Da’wah and accepting its call, thus all praise is due to Allaah.
However, with this entrance into the Salafee Methodology, those who have repented and turned away from their old false ideologies are soon met with confusion and instability since they are thrust forth into a new realm where a lack of knowledge and proper guidelines can easily lead one astray, due to the various jamaa’aat groups and parties in the field of Da’wah.
So the author has taken these few pages to instruct the repentant Muslim, who has abandoned the falsehood and turned to the truth of Salafiyyah, with guidelines and advice that will ensure his steady course on his road to repentance. This is so that he will not be lead astray, whether by turning back on his heels and abandoning his repentance, or by accepting one of the various futile calls that claim Salafiyyah on the outside, but which when examined carefully with knowledge and insight are foreign to the Way of the Salaf.
So we hope to present this treatise as a gift to our on-line community, who have been coming to learn what the Salafee Methodology is, what its principles are and who are its adherents from the scholars, their students and those who follow them in goodness. We ask Allaah to benefit the Muslims with this treatise and to reward its author for his advice and love for the Salafee youth.
