The Days are Alternated Between the People | Imām as-Saʿdī

Allāh tests his slaves with defeats and trials, in order to distinguish between the believer and the hypocrite, because if the believers were to be victorious continuously in all events, then even those who did not want it would enter Islam. So if in some incidents, some types of trials were to occur, the believer who truly desires Islam in prosperity and adversity, in ease and in hardship, will become distinct from those who are not like that.

Al Jazeera Network and its Founders fuel strife in the Muslim lands | Shaykh ʿAdnān al-Maṣqarī

Oh! Muslim, contemplate about your religion, deliberate, and see who your enemy is. And if such a state is established that harnesses its media and wealth for revolutions and coups, rather it shelters seniors of the Muslim Brotherhood, those who advocate revolutions and speaks against the scholars of Islām and Sunnah, then it is permissible to speak against it unanimously and warn against its evil and even supplicate against it and we will pray against it.

This is Our Call | Imām Muḥammad Nāsiruddīn al-Albānī

In this lecture, Imām Al-Albānī explains the basis of the Salafī Manhaj, which is following the way, understanding and practical application of the Salaf, who were
namely the first three generations of Muslims: The Sahābah, Tābi’īn and Atbā’
at-Tābi’īn. They are the ones referred to in the Prophet’s saying: “The best of mankind is my generation, then those that come after them, then those that come after them.”
This is the basis that distinguishes the true call to Islām from all other false and erroneous calls, regardless if they claim to be “upon the Qur’ān and the Sunnah.” Al-Albānī goes into depth discussing this fact, that one cannot truly understand and apply the Qur’ān and Sunnah unless he follows the understanding and application of the Salaf.
