The Path Towards The Rectification Of The Ummah, By Sh. Saalih Al-Fawzaan
Regarding Imaam Maalik’s statement:
“Nothing will rectify the latter part of this ummah except which rectified its first part.”
Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan mentions:
“What was it that rectified the first part? It was returning to the Book of Allaah and the sunnah. Likewise in the latter part of this Islamic nation, when much evil and misguidance, sects and groups have become widespread, only by returning to the way of those in the first generation will the present situation be rectified.
This path, that rectified the first generation, is present today and all praise is due to Allaah. That is the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (saw) and those specific qualified scholars who are able to help us remove our doubts, should they arise.”
