King ‘Abdul ‘Azeez (رحمه الله) said:

“They have labeled us with the term ‘Wahhabiyoon’, and they have named our madhhab as ‘Wahhabi’ considering it as a specific madhhab, and this is a wicked mistake, appearing from the false propaganda which has been spread by the people of gossip. We are not the people of a new madhhab or new ‘aqeedah. Our ‘aqeedah is the ‘aqeedah of the rightly guided predecessors, we respect the four Imaams and we make no distinction between Maalik, ash-Shaafi’ee, Ahmad, and Abu Haneefah, all of them are deeply respected in our view.

This ‘aqeedah is the one, that was re-established by Shaykhul Islaam, Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahaab (رحمه الله), and the one that he called towards. This is our ‘aqeedah and it is the structured ‘aqeedah upon the tawheed of Allaah (سبحانه وتعالى), free from defect, far removed from any innovation.”
