Speaking Against Salafis without Reasons or Proofs

Shaikh Rabī‘ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him from every kind of harm, said:

Indeed, pronouncing judgments upon people that ascribe themselves to the Salafī methodology–their voices resounding with the fact that they are indeed Salafīs–without stating reasons and without evidences and clear proofs, has caused tremendous harms and great division in every country.

So it is obligatory to put an end to these calamaties by coming out with evidences and proofs that make it clear to people and convince them about those judgments having been deserved and [about] their accuracy, or [openly] apologizing for [those] judgments.
