About Al-Qur'an was-Sunnah Society

al-Qur'an was Sunnah Society is one of the notable Islaamic organizations in North America. It is distinguished by a clear and firm Manhaj (methodology), the Manhaj of the Righteous Salaf (the Righteous Early Muslims, may Allah be pleased with them): the Companions (RA) of the Prophet (SAW) and their true followers. The goal of al-Qur'an was Sunnah Society is to invite people to Islaam, to help them understand it, practice it, and purify themselves with it, all in accordance with the blessed Manhaj of the Salaf.

The Da'wah that we Love

The Da`wah (call and mission) that we love and attempt to propagate derives from Allah's Book and the Sunnah of His Messenger (S). It may be summarized in two words: Tasfiyah (cleansing/purifying) and Tarbiyah (educating/cultivating). Allah (T) refers to this in the following: "It is He who has sent unto the unlettered people a Messenger from among themselves to convey unto them His message, to purify them, and to teach them the Book and the Wisdom - whereas before that they had been, most obviously, lost in error" [Al-Jumu`ah (62) Ayat, 2].

We itemize this da`wah into the following objectives:

  1. Return to the sublime Qur'an and to the Prophet's Authentic Sunnah, and comprehend them both in accordance with the understanding and practice of as-Salaf (the Righteous Early Muslims, may Allah be pleased with them).


  2. Caution Muslims and exhort them to cleanse their lives of all forms of Shirk (polytheism), Bid`a (innovations in the creed and in acts of worship), and philosophy or other thoughts alien to the pure essential tenets of Islam.


  3. Cleanse the Sunnah of weak and fabricated narrations. Such problems (here and in Objective 2) have marred the clarity of Islam and have prevented the advancement of Muslims. Enlighten and Educate Muslims, urging them to comply with the true Deen of Allah, to act according to its teachings, and to adorn themselves with its virtues and ethics. This will ensure Allah's acceptance and will realize for them happiness and glory.


  4. Strive to revive unobstructed Islamic thought within the boundaries of Islamic principles, to oppose stubborn adherence to madhabs, and to oppose prejudiced loyalty to parties. Such problems have rested upon the minds of many Muslims, have diverted them from the pure original sources of Islam, and have deviated them from the honest Islamic brotherhood.


  5. Present realistic Islamic solutions to contemporary problems, and strive to resume a true Islamic way of life and to establish a true Islamic society.

We call upon all Muslims to support us in carrying out this noble trust which will surely elevate and honor them and spread the eternal message of Islam all over the earth. Allah (T) has promised this, and his promise is surly true: "He it is who has sent forth His Messenger with [the task of spreading] guidance and the religion of truth, in order to make it prevail over all [false] religion, however hateful this may be to those who ascribe divinity to aught but Allah" [As-Saff (61) 9].
