Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī:

Ṣaḥiḥ al-Bukhārī and Muslim, pay attention to them by studying, understanding and memorising. Also pay attention to the books of Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn al-Qayyim and the scholars of the Islamic propagation in Najd, pay attention to and understand them and tread in their light, May Allah ﷻ bless you. Also do not extend your hands to the organisations like ‘Ihya at-Turāth and other than them, rather be self-sufficient with what Allah gave you from wealth even if it’s little – May Allah ﷻ bless you- For indeed, the Salafī call was established upon the backs of the Salafīs with what they had from little wealth and much poverty. It was not established by gathering wealth, gathering wealth corrupts the Islamic Call- receiving money from the non-Salafī foreign centres and organisations leads to the loss of as-Salafīyyah.

So be warned – the most severe of warnings from co-operating with these organisations and be self-sufficient with what Allah ﷻ gave you from wealth even if it’s little. May Allah ﷻ bless you. Also, tread the path of the Salaf in abstinence and piety – May Allah ﷻ bless you- and by spreading the Salafi Call upon the correct manner May Allah give victory to all of us. Furthermore, I specifically warn you against ‘Ihyaa at-Turāth, for verily they strive hard in the world to split the Salafīs and change them to the methodology of ʿAbd ur-Raḥmān ʿAbd al-Khāliq, the extreme ikhwānī.
