Some Who Wrongly Call Themselves Salafīs

Shaikh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him from every harm, said:

Some people, wrongly and oppressively, say they belong to this [Salafī] methodology. They have come out in public with low, despicable, rotten approaches and manners, and from that Salafiyyah is being struck using the name of Salafiyyah.
