The saved sect, and the victorious group

Who are Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah?

Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah are the saved sect, and the victorious group, the ones that the Prophet -peace be upon him- said would follow his way, and the way of his companions without any deviation or innovation. They are the ones who follow what was revealed in the book of Allah, and stick to the Sunnah of his Prophet -peace be upon him-, and distance themselves from the ways and practices of those of falsehood and deviance.

The Prophet -peace be upon him- said about them: “Verily, my nation will divide into 73 different sects, all of them will be destined for Hellfire except one.” It was said: “O Messenger of Allah, which one?”
He replied: ” The one that follows the way of me today, and my companions.” (Tirmidhi and others).

They are called “Ahlu Sunnah” (People of Sunnah) because they cling to, and follow the Sunnah, methodology, and belief of the beloved Prophet -peace be upon him-, and they are called “Al Jamaa’ah” (the Group) because the Prophet -peace be upon him- said about them in one of the narrations of the previous Hadith: “They are the Jamaa’ah (the group).” They are also described as “the Group” because they are the only group of Muslims that united on the truth, and did not divide their religion or become sects, based on politics or innovation. Rather, they followed the truth and the way of the Prophet -peace be upon him- even tho it caused them trouble and discomfort, or led to their alienation and exclusion.

They are also called “Ahlul Athar”, “Ahlul Hadith”, the saved sect, and the victorious group.
