The Islamic group closest to the Truth nowadays
The first question of Fatwa no. 6250
Q 1: In the Islamic world today there are many groups and Sufi Tariqahs (orders), such as Al-Tabligh Group (a group calling to Islam), Al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimun (the Muslim Brotherhood), Sunnis and Shiites. Which is the group that truly applies the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace be upon him)?
A: The closest of all Islamic groups to the Truth and the keenest to apply it: Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream). They are Ahl Al-Hadith (the scholars of Hadith), Ansar Al-Sunnah group and then the Al-Ikhwan-ul-Muslimun (the Muslim Brotherhood).
(Part No. 2; Page No. 238)
In general, each of these groups and others as well involves right and wrong. You should cooperate with them in their correct views, and avoid the mistakes they made, and always offer one another mutual advice and help in the cause of righteousness and piety.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
