The attack is prefaced with the following verse: "And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger after the Right Path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell -- What an evil destination." (4:115)

By quoting a verse revealed about the disbelievers against the shaykhs and students of Naqshbandi Muslims, the "Salafis" have placed themselves under the meaning of the words of `Abd Allah ibn `Umar narrated by Bukhari in his Sahih, Book of the repentance of apostates (istitabat al-murtaddin): "Ibn `Umar considered the Khawarij and the heretics as the worst beings in creation, and he said: They went to verses which were revealed about the disbelievers and applied them to the Believers."

We have already noted that the manner of this attack ignores the standards of the Shari`a in the case of accusations of kufr brought against Muslims: and this is typical of the Khawarij or Separatists who went against the authority of the Imam of Muslims and the Shari`a of Allah, the latest example of whom being those who followed Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Wahhab in his rebellion against the Khalifa. We have no doubt that the present attack is the work of those who follow Wahhabi tenets rather than the tenets of Ahl al-Sunna, and who are known today as "Salafis."

We will now turn to address their ugly charges one by one in order to expose, with Allah's help, the real shirk and the real kufr of those who try to libel others in order to hide their own confusion.
