Which Group Should I Join?

Answered by Sheikh Abu Muhammad al maqdisi (Hafidhullah).

You ask about which group you should join.

I advise you to aid the truth and Tawhid (pure monotheism) and its adherents, and to search for those who best fulfill this description and be patient alongside them, as Allah Said to His Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم): {“And be patient alongside those who call upon their Lord in the morning and afternoon, seeking His Face…”} [al-Kahf; 28]

You have to first know and learn the truth andTawhid in order to know its adherents, because people are recognized in light of the truth. So, if you come to know the closest people to the call to Tawhid, hold tightly to their friendship and help them as much as you can.

Beware of blind allegiance to personalities, as this will block you off from much good.

The people of the truth that I advise you to stick with must combine these important characteristics:

●they adhere to the belief of Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah

●they follow the Prophetic method in calling to Tawhid and disassociating themselves from shirk

●they do this openly, just as Prophet Ibrahim and his followers did

●they do not have blind allegiance except to textual evidence

●they do their part in aiding and giving victory to the Religion

●they are not hurt by those who oppose them or betray them, as in the description of the Ta’ifah al-Mansurah (the Victorious Group – may Allah make us from it)…”
