May Allah S be pleased with them all.

A Muslim believes that all scholars from the past generation of Islam (the al-Tabi-een), down to the present generation of scholars and pious learned people of Islam cannot be mentioned except with praise and appreciation. Whoever mentions one of them with contempt is astray from the right way.

A Muslim does not separate from, or differentiate between the generality of the Muslim community. We see in the jama'ah (the general community of Islam) the truth, and consider division in Islam as misguidance and an evil temptation of the Shaytaan.

A Muslim does not consult or believe in an astrologer or soothsayer.

A Muslim believes that those who commit major sins among Muslims are not doomed to eternal punishment in Hell, if they died believing in the Oneness of Allah S, even if they did not repent. Such sinners are under the judgement of Allah S alone. He may forgive whoever He pleases as stated in His Divine Words
