Who are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-jamaa'ah?
The following is part of a dialogue in which Shaikh Hammaad makes clear who the people of the Sunnah are:

Questioner: Who are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-jamaa'ah?

The Shaikh: They are those that hold firmly to that which the companions were upon

Questioner: Are the Salafees Ahlus-Sunnah wal-jamaa'ah?

The Shaikh: Yes; As-Salafiyyah is the Sunnah and the Jamaa'ah, that is because the meaning of Salafiyyah is to hold firmly onto that which the righteous Salaf were upon in the past

Questioner: O Shaikh; the jamaa'ah of the Ikhwaan (Al-Muslimeen) and At-Tableegh - are they from Ahlus-Sunnah?

The Shaikh: Everyone who is upon an ideology which is contrary to Ahlus-Sunnah then they are not from them, so the jamaa'ah of the Ikhwaan (Al-Muslimeen) and At-Tableegh are not from Ahlus-Sunnah, because they are upon idelogies that are contrary to them.
