To produce "true" Muslims.
- To bring into existence a "true" Islamic
Society. Allah says: "They (i.e. the Believers) are those who if We
give them the authority in the land, establish the prayer, give the
obligatory charity (i.e. Zakat) and enjoin what is good (i.e. to worship
Allah in His Oneness and to obey all of His commandments) and to forbid
wrong (i.e. to join others in worship with Allah and to disobey any of His
orders). And with Allah rests the decisions of all affairs." [Surah
- To establish the proofs of Allah against the
Kuffaar and the deviant heretics and groups within the Ummah. Allah says in
the Qur'an: "[We have sent] Messengers as bearers of good news and as
warners, in order that mankind shall have no plea against Allah after the
Messengers. And Allah is Ever-Powerful, All- Wise." [Surah Aali Imraan
- To absolve ourselves with Allah by discharging the trust of Da'wah which
He has made obligatory upon us. Allah says: "And when a community
amongst them said: 'Why do you preach to a people whom Allah is about to
destroy and punish with a severe torment?' The preachers said: 'In order to
be free from guilt before your Lord (i.e. Allah) and perhaps that they may
fear Allah.'" [Surah Araaf 7:164].
The Distinguishing Characteristics of the Salafi
Among the distinguishing characteristics of the Salafi Da'wah are:
- Actualization of Tawheed in the beliefs, statements, and deeds of the
Muslims. Allah says: "Worship Allah (alone) and join none with Him in
worship." [Surah al-Nisa' 4:36].
- Actualization of the unity of the Muslims through their strict adherence
to the Sunnah. Allah says: "And hold fast all of you together to the
Rope of Allah (i.e. the Qur'an) and be not divided among yourselves . . .
" [Surah Aali Imraan 3:103].
