Salafiyyah 
(i.e. adhere to the Qur’aan and
Sunnah 
asunderstood by the Companions).I ask Allah, the Most High, to make this effort entirely for Him and to benefit us by way of it.What follows are a few points that

[Interact with One Another Based upon Knowledge]
Shaykh 
Ahmad, may Allah protect him, mentioned:...Do you believe that
Shaykh 
Saalih as-Suhaymee,
Shaykh 
Rabee’ b. Haadee al-Madkhalee, and
Shaykh 
Saalih al-Fawzaan, [for example], encounter with oneanother the same problems that some students run into with one another? No.They don't. Why is that? It's because their interactions with one another arebased upon knowledge...
[Frequent and Aid
Salafee
Mosques and Centers]
Shaykh 
Ahmad, may Allah protect him from evil, also mentioned:Another way to maintain cohesiveness with your
Salafee 
brothers is to protecteach other’s thoughts from suspicion and confusion.An example of this is to distance one’s self from Mosques that are not foundedupon other the Qur’aan and Sunnah as understood by the Pious Predecessors (i.e.they are founded upon
hizbiyyah 
).By [unnecessarily] frequenting these Mosques it may cause your
Salafee 
brothersto suspect something about you. They may say or suspect: “Why are youassociating with those who aren’t adherents of the Qur’aan and Sunnah upon theunderstanding of the Pious Predecessors” - (i.e.
hizbees 
)?!

I say, stay away fromthis action. Accompany your
Salafee 
brothers at their Mosques [and centers].

Perhaps the doubt will come, “I am giving them
d’awah 
.”
Shaykh 
Muhammad IbnHaadee, may Allah preserve him, mentioned an enlightening point about
d’awah 
. Hementioned: “It is not imperative that a person mixes with those whom he intends to give
d’awah 
to. He can write to them or use other means. Listen to “An Explanation of IbnBattah’s
al-Ibaanah al-Sughraa 
.” – www.miraath.net, Lesson #2.

A proof that Islamic legislation encourages us to guard our brothers’ thoughtsfrom suspicion and confusion is the following Prophetic tradition
5
:On the authority of Anas b. Maalik [d. 92/93 AH]:
A man passed by theMessenger of Allah while he, prayers and peace upon him, was with a woman. So,the Messenger of Allah, prayers and peace upon him, summoned the man andsaid:
This is my wife
, [Safiyyah].
 The man said:
O Messenger of Allah, that which I would have suspected aboutsomeone else, I did not suspect that about you.
Upon hearing that, the Messengerof Allah, prayers and peace upon him, said:
Indeed
,
the devil circulatesthrough mankind just as blood does
.
[Collected by Muslim, #2174]
Shaykh 
Ah
  ̣
mad, may Allah protect him, explained this prophetic practice by saying:From this prophetic practice, we are enlightened to something that Islamencourages: Islam encourages us to guard our brothers’ thoughts, just as theMessenger of Allah, prayers and peace upon him, guarded his Companions’thoughts.So, guard your
Salafee 
brothers’ thoughts; aid them in having good thoughtsabout you by being cautious about being around those who do not practice Islamaccording to the Qur’aan and
Sunnah 
as understood by the Companions, lest your
Salafee 
brothers may question: “Why are you behaving in such amanner?”

[TN]:
Shaykh 
Ahmad paraphrased this hadith. I returned back to its source andfound its exact wording.
6
[TN]: Ibn al-Jawzee mentions al-Khattaabee said: “This Prophetic practice shows thedesirability of being cautious about performing disliked actions that may causesuspicious thoughts to enter into the hearts [of people].”“We also learn that a person should seek safety from [the evil thoughts] of peopleby performing actions which are free from doubt.” [See
Talbees Iblees
