Is Salafiyyah a Group from Amongst the Party Spirited Groups
Question:

Is Salafiyyah a group from amongst the (various) groups? And is the ascription to it blameworthy?
Answer:

Salafiyyah: It is the saved sect, and they are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaaah, it is not a sect from amongst the party spirited groups that are labeled with partisanship; it is a Jamaaah upon the Sunnah and the Deen. He (the Prophet) sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

There will not cease to be a group of my nation manifest upon the truth, not being harmed by those who abandon them, nor by those who appose them. [1]

He (the Prophet) sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

" ."

This Ummah will split into seventy three sects all of them in the fire except one.

They (the Companions) asked: What is it (the saved sect) O Messenger of Allaah? He (the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

" "

Those that are upon what I and my Companions are upon today. [2]

So Salafiyyah is a group upon the methodology of the Salaf, upon that which the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and his Companions were upon, that is not a sect from the party spirited sects of today. Indeed it (as-Salaffiyah) is an ancient Jamaaah traced back to the time of the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam a continually inherited legacy, remaining manifest upon the truth up until the establishment of the Hour as he sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam informed.
