Ibn Bâz and the term “Salafî”
Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Reference: Darulhadith.com, http://aFatwa.com
Question: There are those who say that Shaykh ‘Abdul-’Azîz bin Bâz did not deem it to be correct to subscribe to and call oneself as “Salafî” and “Atharî”. Is this true?
Shaykh al-Fawzân: It is not something we know from him. His books call to the following of the Salaf, the narrations and the evidence. He himself was in that state until he died. He followed the methodology of the Salaf. He took the narrations, Hadîths and the evidence into account. His books are available now. They clarify his situation.
