Clarification About the Conference

Truly, all praise is due to Allaah, Lord of all creation. May His salutations and blessings be upon the last Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

We praise Allaah, and are forever grateful to Him, that He has allowed a number of organizations, masaajid and individuals from different localities within the United States, to collaborate on the organization of our first annual conference, “In Defense of the Salafi Manhaj”. We ask Allaah to aid us, help us, and make our intentions sincerely for His sake; indeed He is capable of all things.

Since the announcement of this endeavour, certain erroneous allegations have been made regarding the organizers and their intentions. Given that the original flier utilized the phrase, “First Annual Salafi Conference,” it has been insinuated that the organizers of this conference believe that this is in fact the very first Salafi conference to be organized in the United States!  Certainly, this allegation is little more than evil thoughts regarding the brothers and sisters who are organizing and participating in this event. With the permission of Allaah, we will mention one simple point that will absolutely debase this argument:

If the organizers truly believed that this conference was the first Salafi conference in the United States, then this would necessitate that they also believed that the conferences that they themselves have organized and participated in were in definition, not Salafi conferences. All praise is due to Allaah, that over the last ten years, we have organized numerous conferences concerning a large amount of topics, a number of them alongside our elder and brother Abu Uwais – rahimahullaah. We have had participation from our Scholars, such as Imaam Muqbil Ibn Haadee al-Wasdi’ee (d.1420H), al-‘Allaamah Rabee’ Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee, al-‘Allaamah Ahmad Ibn Yahyaa an-Najmee (d.1429H), al-‘Allaamah ‘Ubayd Ibn ‘Abdullaah al-Jaabiree, and many others; not to mention the conference that was organized not two months prior with Shaykh Falaah Ibn Ismaa’eel! So how can it be said that the organizers believe this to be the first Salafi conference in the United States, wallaahul-musta’aan (and Allaah is the One from whom aid is sought)!

Nevertheless, so as not to give the Shaytaan an opportunity to place dubious thoughts in the hearts of our brothers and sisters, we have removed the phrase “First Annual Salafi Conference” from the flier.

    Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. I’ve tried to search for whether or not this will be held online as well, but have not been able to find that information. Will this conference also be virtually accessible for those who will not be physically present? JazaakAllaahu khayr and may Allaah reward you all for your efforts; Ameen.

    I pray that Allaah Azza Wa Jall allows the Salafiyyeen here in the US to benefit from this conference. I live here in Killeen Tx and am one of the very few Salafis here. I don’t need to inform you of the events that transpired nearly 1 &1/2 yrs ago. I would like to get info on how to contact the du’aat for a Radd upon the henious act perpetrated @ Ft. Hood. If any of them sees this e-mail, then plz reply.
