The 31st All India Jamiate Ahle Hadeeth Conference at Ramlila Ground, New Delhi was such an inspiring example of exemplary discipline that it would leave an enduring impression on the minds of Delhi people. It was s grand gathering and historic. In this General Conference, which was held in the sprawling Ramlila Maidan on 2-3 March, 2012, the Imam Harame Makki, Dr. Saud Bin Ibrahim As-Shuraim was the Chief Guest. He delivered Juma Khutba and led Friday prayer where almost 4 Lakh Muslims renewed their pledge to hold fast to the rope of Allah leaving Maslaki and Sectarian differences aside. Sheikh As-Shuraim on the topic of Adalatus Sahaba, the central theme of 31st All India Ahle Hadeeth Conference, said in Juma Khutba:

AHLE HADEETHS – THEIR AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The Ahle Hadeeth or the Salafis, popularly but contemptuously referred to as the Wahabis, are a constituent group of Sunni Muslims. They adhere to the pristine teachings of Islam as enshrined in the Holy Quran and Sunnah (the precepts, practices and approvals of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and reject what has not been enjoined by the Islamic Shariah. The Ahle Hadeeths or the Salafis believe in pristine Monotheism (Tauheed Khalis), turn to Allah seeking His Mercy and don’t invoke Saint’s blessings. They do not stick to any of the Sectarian Jurisprudence (fiqh).although they are given due respect. Since they adhere to the pristine teachings of the Holy Quran and Sunnah, they have their distinct identity among Muslims.

General Secretary, Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mahadi Salafi, in a statement while expressing his great concern over the efforts being made to spread hatred among Muslims of India in the name of Wahabism said that the terms “Wahabi” and “Whabism” are the product of the British mind which it had coined them to create and promote dissensions and disputes between Indians and to punish those people who were taking an active part in the Indian freedom movement. Hence at that time “Wahabis” and “rebels of British government” were considered this word worthy of attention nor did Muslim use it for themselves. It is, however, a fact that these very people were always in the forefront in liberating this country from British imperialism. It is also an undeniable historical fact that the main mission of these people was to present Islam among the ‘Ulama in the same spirit and form in which it was in the days of the Holy Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) companions, and which was a blessing, guarantor of peace, embodiment of clear teachings of the Holy Quran and Hadeeth and quite simple, free from all adulterations alterations and free from un-Islamic customs and of violence, differences and extremism. Therefore, the rhetoric from Muslim Maha-pan-Chayat is in no way correct, just and in the interest of the country and nation but harmful from all aspects.
