Salafists from Past to Present

Groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Wahhabism, and certain excommunicationist-Jihadist terrorists are commonly associated with Salafism. However, it is important to consider whether the ideas of these groups align with one another. In the present era, the term “Salafism” is increasingly employed to encompass movements like the Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabism.

While excommunicationist-Jihadist terrorists may be referred to as Salafists, it is crucial to assess whether these groups share common ideas or differ in their beliefs. Additionally, evaluating the perspective of excommunicationist groups regarding Wahhabism becomes pertinent.

The book explores these inquiries, tracing the historical trajectory of Salafism from its origins to the present day, while also shedding light on the key figures who have played significant roles in shaping and establishing Salafist thought.
