Aqeedah difference salfi and sunni
(followed by deobandi,barelvis,kerala sunnis and most of the muslim worldwide other than shias)
(CLARIFICATION :Although we consider all muslims groups other than Shia as Sunni but for the of understanding we have used the term Sunni for Ashari-Maturidi(DEOBANDI BARELVI KERALA SUNNI AND HANAFI SHAFAI HANBALI MALAIKI) and Salafi for(AHLE HADITH,SALAFI MUJAHIDS OF KERALA AND SIMILAR OTHERS) other.We did not like it but found no option to clear the UNDERSTANDING BECAUSE the two main group has further subdivided. If any one having better suggestion please inform us in comments.)
First I would like to outline the major differences between Ashari-Maturidi and Salafi School. Then will deal one by one by presenting their position and historical facts.
1.FIRST DIFFERENCE :
Muatazeli :This school was developed between the 8th and 10th centuries(200-300Hijri). Mu’tazili thought relies heavily on logic,and Greek philosophy. Between 200-300 hijri this Fitna became very serious because of patronage from King Mamoon and Muatasim. By the grace of Allah it has no longer any following,among present day muslim.There is no need to know further about as muatazelli,it was a fitna and knowledge about is not a kind of knowledge that Rasulullah sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam has asked to attain and it is of no use in Akhirah.Similarly Jehmia and Qadria were also deviated.Thanks to Allah as they are not surviving anymore.
The controversial point is about Waseela from from prophet /Aulia a after their death.
Suni scholars view is based on Ahadith related with these topic.
Sayyiduna Uthmaan ibn Hunayf [radhiallaahu anhu] narrates that once a blind person came to Rasulullah [sallallaahu alayhi wasallam] and said:
maam Ahmad bin Hambal(RA) has also encouraged making Tawassul through Rasulullah [sallallahu alayhi wasallam] in ones duas. (Fataawa ibn Taimiyyah vol.1 pg.140, Also see Mafaaheem pg.137)
Imam Ahmad and Tawassul:
We will discuss it in detail about the proof from quran and sunnah for the position taken by Salafi and sunni scholars (Insha Allah)
4. FOURTH DIFFERENCE
ISSUE OF KARAMAT E AULIA
One person came to Imam Malik (R.A) and asked
All these will be discussed one by one InshaAllah. We will present the proofs for the stand of Salafi and Sunnis both on these issue. We will discuss in the light of evidences being presented by both blocks but will not make any judgment.(Allah knows the best,May Allah help us)
