Dr. Muhammad al-Jibaly talks on an excellent and very important subject the "Methodology of Ahl-e-Sunnah Wal-Jama'ah"."...The best of words or the best speech are the Words of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala...The best of guidance is the Guidance of the Prophet, Muhammad Salalahu Alaihi Wa Salam......The Prophet's mission, Salalahu Alaihi Wa Salam, it is to explain the Qur'an to us and to teach us how to practice it, how to live by it....His manner, his character , Salalahu Alaihi Wa Salam, was basically the Qur'an......So he is advising his companions that after me be careful, do not fight for power...keep the word of the Ummah together and this is part of the teachings of Islam."Allah Azza Wa Jall Says in the Qur'an:O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray.And when it is said to them, "Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger," you see the hypocrites turning away from you in aversion.So how [will it be] when disaster strikes them because of what their hands have put forth and then they come to you swearing by Allah, "We intended nothing but good conduct and accommodation."Those are the ones of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts, so turn away from them but admonish them and speak to them a far-reaching word.And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah. And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, [O Muhammad], and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful.But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission.And if We had decreed upon them, "Kill yourselves" or "Leave your homes," they would not have done it, except for a few of them. But if they had done what they were instructed, it would have been better for them and a firmer position [for them in faith].And then We would have given them from Us a great reward.And We would have guided them to a straight path.And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger - those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions.That is the bounty from Allah, and sufficient is Allah as Knower.[Surah An-Nisaa', Ayat 59-70]SUNAN ABU-DAWUDBook 40, Number 4590:Narrated Irbad ibn Sariyah:AbdurRahman ibn Amr as-Sulami and Hujr ibn Hujr said: We came to Irbad ibnSariyah who was among those about whom the following verse was revealed: "Nor(is there blame) on those who come to you to be provided with mounts, and whenyou said: "I can find no mounts for you."We greeted him and said: We have come to see you to give healing and obtainbenefit from you.Al-Irbad said: One day the Messenger of Allah (prace be upon him) led us in prayer,then faced us and gave us a lengthy exhortation at which the eyes shed tears and thehearts were afraid.A man said: Messenger of Allah! It seems as if it were a farewell exhortation, so whatinjunction do you give us?He, the Prophet (PBUH] then said: "I enjoin you to fear Allah, and to hear and obey even if it be an Abyssinian slave,for those of you who live after me will see great disagreement.You must then follow my Sunnah and that of the rightly-guided caliphs.Hold to it and stick fast to it. Avoid novelties, for every novelty is an innovation,and every innovation is a misguidance."
