Dr. Abdur-Razzaaq considers that the various Islamic groups such as al-Ikhwaan, at-Tabligh, at-Takfeer, at-Tahreer, at-Tawaqquf, at-Tabayyun etc. are from Ahl us-Sunnah. As for declaring them to be from the Ahl ul-Bid’ah due to their opposition to the Salafi manhaj, then this [in his estimation] is a principle from the principles of misguidance. And here is the text of his words: "And amongst these principles - that is the principles of misguidance - is that every jamaa’ah of da’wah to Allaah at the present time is an organisation of innovations and misguidance and that they are offshoots of the sects of the pasts that were outside of Islaam" (p.3)

Then you should know right at the beginning that these words - in this particular way - not a single one of the scholars has said them, nor the well-known students of knowledge and those upon the way of the Salaf. No one has said that Ansaar us-Sunnah is an astray sect. Or that the Ahl ul-Hadeeth in India and Pakistan is an extension of the sects of the past. And similarly, none of them have said that al-Ikhwaan or at-Tabligh are astray sects that are outside the fold of Islaam!! Rather, what they have said is that they are from Ahl us-Sunnah but are not upon the way of the Salaf us-Saalih, and these are merely calculated and devised ways [on behalf of ash-Shaayijee] and great exaggerations.

And there is no doubt that the groups "at-Tabligh, al-Ikhwaan, at-Tawaqquf, at-Tabayyun, Hizbut-Tahrir, at-Takfeer wal-Hijrah and others" have reached the level of innovating in the religion and as such placing them within the umbrella of the Islamic sects in opposition to the guidance of the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) is correct and justified. And this has been said by the scholars of Madinah and also other than them. In fact a group from the scholars has made this clear and amongst the strongest of those who have done this and have clarified and explained this matter in such a way that no more explanation is required is Shaikh Bikr Abu Zaid - may Allaah grant him success - and ash-Shaayijee affiliates himself with the Shaikh a lot. So the Shaikh authored a book: ‘The Ruling on Membership to Sects, Parties and Groups’ and here are some of his words:

Then let us consider/assert them as ‘sects’ not as the Jamaa'atul-Muslimeen – because the Jamaa’at ul-Muslimeen (main body of Muslims) is one and does not separate into many groups - upon the likes of what the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) and His Companions (radiallaahu anhum) were upon - and whatever is other than the Jamaa’at ul-Muslimeen then they are from the sects of the Jamaa’at ul-Muslimeen. (p.14)

And amongst the scholars who have said the same thing is Shaikh al-Albaanee in many of his cassettes, and amongst his sayings is:

And I say then, that it is not correct for it to be said that al-Ikhwaan ul-Muslimeen are from Ahl us-Sunnah, because they fight against the Ahl us-Sunnah [From the tape: Debate with a Suroori]

And similarly, Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan when he said:

And the end part of that is what we are living in now, the arrival of strange and suspectful ideas in our land in the name of ‘da’wah’ - through the hands of the various groups which are called by various names such as al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen, Jamaa’at ut-Tabligh and the Jamaa’ah of such and such. And the goal of all of them is the one and same and that is to drive away the da’wah of Tawheed and to take up is place [with something else]. And in reality, the purpose/intent of these groups is not different from the purpose/intent of those who have preceded them from amongst the enemies of this blessed da’wah - all of them desire to put an end to it. However the difference between them is only with respect to their plans/modes of action. And if not, then if these groups had desired - truthfully - da’wah to Allaah, then why do they overlook and abandon their own countries - from where they are dispatched to us? And yet these same countries are most in need of da’wah and rectification. They overlook their own countries and then they come out to battle against the land of Tawheed, desiring to change its correct course of rectification to one that is twisted - and they desire to deceive its youth and to bring about fitnah and enmity between them... [Haqeeqat ud-Da’wah ilallaah of Sa’d Abdur-Rahmaan al-Haseen]

And the Shaikh and Alaamah, Bin Baaz has some strong words in the magazine ‘al-Majallah’ where he said:
