A Khutbah Regarding Following the Salaf and Sticking to the Jama’ah

Allah Ta’ala states:

اَلَّذينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الرَّسُولَ النَّبِىَّ الْاُمِّىَّ الَّذى يَجِدُونَهُ مَكْتُوبًا عِنْدَهُمْ فِى التَّوْرٰيةِ وَالْاِنْجيلِ يَاْمُرُهُمْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهٰیهُمْ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَائِثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنْهُمْ اِصْرَهُمْ وَالْاَغْلَالَ الَّتى كَانَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ فَالَّذينَ اٰمَنُوا بِه وَعَزَّرُوهُ وَنَصَرُوهُ وَاتَّبَعُوا النُّورَ الَّذى اُنْزِلَ مَعَهُ اُولٰـئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ
“Those who follow the messenger, the Ummi (unlettered) Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures), in the Tawrah (Torah) and Injil (the Gospel); for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honor him, help him, and follow the Light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper.” (al-A’raf 7/157)

قَال ابْنُ عُمَرَ: خَطَبَنَا عُمَرُ بِالجَابِيَةِ فَقَالَ: يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ، إِنِّي قُمْتُ فِيكُمْ كَمَقَامِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِينَا فَقَالَ

أُوصِيكُمْ بِأَصْحَابِي، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، ثُمَّ يَفْشُو الكَذِبُ حَتَّى يَحْلِفَ الرَّجُلُ وَلَا يُسْتَحْلَفُ، وَيَشْهَدَ الشَّاهِدُ وَلَا يُسْتَشْهَدُ، أَلَا لَا يَخْلُوَنَّ رَجُلٌ بِامْرَأَةٍ إِلَّا كَانَ ثَالِثَهُمَا الشَّيْطَانُ، عَلَيْكُمْ بِالجَمَاعَةِ وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَالفُرْقَةَ فَإِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ مَعَ الوَاحِدِ وَهُوَ مِنَ الِاثْنَيْنِ أَبْعَدُ، مَنْ أَرَادَ بُحْبُوحَةَ الجَنَّةِ فَلْيَلْزَمِ الجَمَاعَةَ، مَنْ سَرَّتْهُ حَسَنَتُهُ وَسَاءَتْهُ سَيِّئَتُهُ فَذَلِكَ الْمُؤْمِنُ

Ibnu Umar (radiyallahu anh) narrated that (his father) Umar (radiyallahu anh) delivered a Khutbah to us at al-Jabiyah (a region in Shaam area). Umar (radiyallahu anh) said: O you people! Indeed I have stood among you as the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) stood among us, and he said:

"I order you (to stick to) my Companions, then those who come after them, then those who come after them. Then lying will spread until a man will take an oath when no oath was sought from him, and a witness will testify when his testimony was not sought. Behold! A man is not alone with a woman but the third of them is the Shaytaan. Adhere to the Jama'ah, beware of separation, for indeed the Shaytaan is with one, and he is further away from two. Whoever wants the best place in Paradise, then let him stick to the Jama'ah. Whoever rejoices with his good deeds and grieves over his evil deeds, then that is the believer among you." (Tirmidhi, Hadith no, 2165; Ibnu Majah, Hadith no, 2363; Nasa’i, Hadith no, 9181; Hakim, Mustadrak, Hadith no, 387)

Allah Ta’ala states:


وَالسَّابِقُونَ الْاَوَّلُونَ مِنَ الْمُهَاجِرينَ وَالْاَنْصَارِ وَالَّذينَ اتَّبَعُوهُمْ بِاِحْسَانٍ رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَاَعَدَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرى تَحْتَهَا الْاَنْهَارُ خَالِدينَ فيهَا اَبَدًا ذٰلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظيمُ
“The vanguard (of Islam) the first of those who forsook (their homes) and of those who gave them aid, and (also) those who follow them in (all) good deeds, -well- pleased is Allah with them, as are they with Him: for them hath He prepared Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein for ever: that is the supreme triumph.” (at-Tawbah 9/100)

عن عِمْرَانَ بْنَ حُصَيْنٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ يقول،َ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

خَيْرُ أُمَّتِي قَرْنِي، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، ثُمَّ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَهُمْ، - قَالَ عِمْرَانُ فَلاَ أَدْرِي: أَذَكَرَ بَعْدَ قَرْنِهِ قَرْنَيْنِ أَوْ ثَلاَثًا - ثُمَّ إِنَّ بَعْدَكُمْ قَوْمًا يَشْهَدُونَ وَلاَ يُسْتَشْهَدُونَ، وَيَخُونُونَ وَلاَ يُؤْتَمَنُونَ، وَيَنْذُرُونَ وَلاَ يَفُونَ، وَيَظْهَرُ فِيهِمُ السِّمَنُ

It was narrated on the authority of Imran bin Husayn (radiyallahu anh) that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The best of my followers are those living in my generation (i.e. my contemporaries), and then those who will follow the latter.

Imran (radiyallahu anh) added: I do not remember whether he (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned two or three generations after his generation, then Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) added:

There will come after you, people who will bear witness without being asked to do so, and will be treacherous and untrustworthy, and they will vow and never fulfill their vows, and fatness will appear among them.” (Bukhari, Hadith no: 3650)
Shaykh’ul Islam Ibnu Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said:

وكل قول ينفرد به المتأخر عن المتقدمين، ولم يسبقه إليه أحد منهم، فإنه يكون خطأ كما قال الإمام أحمد بن حنبل‏‏

"All statements that had been said by the Mutaakhirrin (latter ones) differing from the Mutaqaddimin (predecessors) and that had not been previously mentioned by any other, is a mistake. As Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (rahimahullah) said:

‏إياك أن تتكلم في مسألة ليس لك فيها إمام‏

"Refrain from speaking about a matter without an Imam!.." (Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majma’ul Fatawa, 21/291)
