In a video commentary on a prior discussion that took place in Speaker's Corner, Muḥammad Hijāb presented his understanding of the issue of the base rule concerning a Muslim and issues pertaining to tabdīʿ(declaring someone to be an innovator). This article provides a clarification of some of his misunderstandings and errors in the topic and in particular his belief that the foundation with respect to any Muslim is salāmat al-iʿtiqād (safety, soundness of belief).
This is the first of a series of articles which explore the novel understanding of "Sunnism" and "Salafism" that Qadhi and Hijab are trying to promote which is nothing but a revival of the way of Hasan al-Banna for the 21st century, clothed with rhetoric, opinion and philosophy with some Orientalist flakes on the top for good measure.
