A good advice for those who want to break away from the jama'aah and give da'wah independently, formulating new platforms and organisations.

Question:

Is it necessary for every Salafī to call to Salafiyyah within a Salafī group or can one call to Allaah by himself without being attached to a Salafī group?

Answer:

Our Lord says:

“...and be with those who are truthful (in speech and deeds).” [At-Tawbah: 119]

The Messenger of Allaah said:

“Allaah's Hand is upon the Jamaa'ah.”

He also said:

“It is upon you to be with the Jamaa'ah for indeed the wolf only devours the stray sheep.”

We know through experience as well as by understanding the legislated texts that whoever claims to be Salafī in his 'aqīdah but does not want to affiliate himself with a group, wanting to call by himself as stated in the question, that the outcome would be that he will be alone in calling to Allaah. This is because if Allaah said to Mūsá as has been related in the Qur'aan:

“We will strengthen you through your brother.” [Al-Qasas: 35]

So this is a man whom Allaah has spoken to and chosen to convey His Message, so how about a single Muslim? Isn't he in need of being strengthened by his brothers? No doubt the answer is yes.

Due to this, it is a duty upon the Salafī to join the Jamaa'ah in his country so long as his call is the same as theirs, because there is strength in this as the aforementioned verse indicates. If he persists in distancing himself from the Jamaa'ah then there is no doubt that the wolves will devour him as the previous Ḥadīth confirms. Meaning that the other groups will adopt and pull him towards them; due to this he would deviate from the path whether realising this or not.

In conclusion, I say that Allaah says:

“...and be with those who are truthful (in speech and deeds).” [At-Tawbah: 119]

There is no doubt that whoever wants to be by himself in his call is in clear loss.
