Not Everyone Who Claim To Follow Salaf, Is A Salafi
In present times many groups and individuals claim their adherence to the aqidah (creed) and manhaj (methodology) of Salaf, but when examined closely it gets crystal clear that they are effected with tamyee’  or suffering from the cancer of Haddaadiyyah and very few are strictly walking on the path of Salafiyyaah.
Mumayeen (those who are effected with tamyee) starts getting suffocated when the principals of jarh (criticism) are mentioned and when Ahlul Bid’ah Wal Ahwaa (people of innovation and desire) are refuted. They can’t hear the verdicts against their so called “Scholars” who are guilty of practicing Al Wala (loyalty) with deviant individuals and groups. You will see Mumayeen taking part in lectures and conferences along with individuals and groups who don’t have clarity in manhaj, trying to find excuses for them although their falsehood is as clearly visible as the mid-day sun. Mumayeen accuse Salafiyoon of being Harsh and extreme, even though if their (i.e. Salafiyoon) stand and position is based on the speeches of Scholars which is based on proofs from Qur’an, Sunnah & Ijma’ (consensus).
Mumayeen secretly or sometimes openly speak ill and warn from Salafi Scholars and Students of Knowledge who do not compromise. Furthermore, Mumayeen try to hide themselves behind those Salafi Scholars who have mistakes in their position on certain individuals and groups due to not been complete aware of them, although it is well-known principal Jarh Muffasar (detailed criticism) takes precedence over Tadeel Mujmal (general praise or recommendation). Mumayeen are also guilty of indulging in the Bid’ah of Al Muwaazanah (counterbalancing when refuting).
Ikhwanis , khawarij , Takfiri , Qutbis  Turathi  IRF  and their affiliates, Salman al-Awdah*, Safar al-Hawali*, Alee al-Halabee*, Adnan Aroor*, Muhammad al-Maghraawee*, Abu Ishaq al Huwaynee*, Muhammad Hassaan Al-Misree*, Abul Hasan Al Ma’rabi*, Abdur-Rahman Abdul-Khaliq*and their followers are affected with tamyee’
As for Haddaadees (those who have cancer of Haddaadiyyah) then they practice unjustified harshness and extremism. Declaring as deviants those who are reliable and well grounded from the Scholars and students of knowledge. Performing Bara (disavowal) on the issues of fiqh and ijtihad. Lack of hikmah in Dawah, Being hasty in taking positions or issuing rulings, Crossing the limits and not returning to the scholars are some of their hallmarks. Haddaadees busy themselves in trying to find errors and slips of reliable Scholars and students of Knowledge. In our time some of the haddaadees are guilty of the most extreme form of hizbiyyah“
Lastly, the Salafiyoon then by the grace of Allaah Subhaanahu Wa Taaala they are the most knowledgeable people and strictly adhere the aqidah(creed) and manhaj (methodology) of Salaf, not compromising it with Ahlul Bid’ah Wal Ahwaa. They always sticking to the major scholars and returning to them in all affairs. Not practicing unjustified harshness and extremism, merciful towards common people. Applying hikmah in Dawah and not crossing the set limits. They are free from Hizbiyyah and Hadaadiyyah. They don’t take part in lectures and conferences along with unclear individuals and groups which call towards baatil or are unknown to the Scholars. They don’t find excuses for Ahlul Bid’ah Wal Ahwaa. They are respectful towards the Scholars and students of knowledge. The perform Al Wala with Ahlul haq and Bara with Ahlul Batil. They stop where the Salaf and scholars stop.
