Who are your Salafi Scholars and who you take your knowledge from?

الحمد لله رب العالمين ، و الصلاة و السلام على سيد المرسلين ، و على آله و صحبه أجمعين

In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad and his followers.
Wa ba'd,

Dear readers, I am taking a very different approach here in dealing with some brothers and sisters, who though have good intention but due to the lack of knowledge, and not taking from the true correct sources of knowledge, fall short and thus making a lot of confusion in this matter: "who do you take your knowledge from? that is your Islamic religious knowledge - ad-Deen?". At the same time, another group went to the other extreme, taking knowledge from anyone and everyone without reference and proper guidance.

These brothers and sisters (the first group) would normally ask you such a question, as cited above and "who are the scholars you refer to" and sadly, they make this a fitnah and start to confuse people who never had the chance to seek knowledge directly from the true scholars of Islam. They themselves (these brothers and sisters) are also at lost, not knowing the Arabic language and not learning from the True Scholars as well, yet you will discover that they would boastfully, arrogantly regard themselves as having acquired "true authentic knowledge" just because they learn by means of tele-link from "da'iees/preachers" who claim to have links to specific scholars.

I will only share with my fellow muslim brothers and sisters, readers and followers of this blog, "links" of videos and articles from the True Real Salaf Scholars to make clear this matter, such that, none of us need to worry if we do not follow these people. People who are in reality not following the Scholars, although they claimed to be such. They bear the traits of the Khawaarij more than Ahlis Sunnah as they form a sect. A sect which make their main activity, slander their Muslim brothers, the muslim preachers and even scholars. If the Khawaarij make"takfeer" (justified the status of "kufur"/apostasy/infidelity on other muslims), the people of this sect a.k.a SuperSalafees @ Jama'ah Tahdzier make "Tabdie'" (justified the status of "bid'ah"/heretic/innovators in deen/deviant on other muslims, brothers and sisters alike, the laymen and preachers even scholars too.

Hopefully, they will repent and turn to real scholars and get benefit from the people who had gained knowledge from the scholars, instead of preoccupying themselves with slander, backbiting, "links", "tazkiyah" (recommendations) and so forth and save those whom they try to influence.

Allah is the One who Guides.

So if anyone comes to you asking about: "Who do you take your knowledge from?" "Who are the Salafi Scholars you refer to" "Do you have any links with any Scholar", then you, dear reader, my muslim brother and sister, just need to share these videos or links.

Grand Mufti Shaykh 'Abdul 'Azeez Aalu Shaykh's advice
But this is to be taken in general, as the Shaykh's advice is for the Muslims in general and the basis of what is right or wrong, not pertaining those people mentioned by the questioner. advice to Critics

As they would usually ascribe themselves as followers of Shaikh Rabee' al-Madkhali (may Allah preserve him). This is from the teacher of Shaykh Rabee', Shaykh Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee:
Shaikh al-Albaanee on Syeikh Rabee' (Final Testimony)

A Beneficial Advice to Youth by Sh. al-Fawzaan (Arabic)
Ask the one who asks you, the like of those questions cited above, to translate. If he/she is unable to translate, then just tell him/her to acquire Arabic before speaking ill/evil about other muslims. Ask their so called "links to the scholars" to tramslate for them.

Sh. 'Utsaimien's advice to the Extremists in their Criticism

asy-Syaikh al-Albaanee's advice:
On The Youth Refuting and Defaming One Another Out of Spite, Based on Drastic Ignorance and as a Result Turning the People Away From Themselves
After explaining the weakness of a hadith he was discussing,the Imaam said, “… though it [does] represent the state of affairs of many of the youth of the supposed awakening of today, those who refute one another, defame one another—out of spite, not to sincerely advise—their transgression and evil having reached some of the scholars and virtuous ones, and they insulted them with various names, not implementing the manners propounded by Islaam [that], “The one who does not show mercy to our young, respect our elders, and recognize our scholar’s rights, is not from us,”—self-conceited with snippets of knowledge they gathered from here and there—until they imagined that they had something to stand on, but they have nothing to stand on, as has been mentioned in some of the hadiths about the trials.
And they turned away the hearts of many people from themselves through sayings and fatwas which communicate their drastic ignorance, the thing which reminds us that they are from those whom the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم referred to in the authentic hadith, ‘Verily, Allah does not take away knowledge by snatching it from the people but He takes away knowledge by taking away the scholars, so that when no scholar remains, the people turn to the ignorant as their leaders. Then they are asked to deliver religious verdicts and they deliver them without knowledge—so they go astray [themselves], and lead others astray,’ agreed upon [i.e., reported in Bukhaari and Muslim].”
