Wahhabism


Wahhabism is one of the many Muslim religious currents developed in Islam, this theological branch is much larger than the Sunnis and even more than the Habani school, its founder was the Arab resident who went by the name of Muhammad ibn Abd al Wahhab, whose self-imposed predominance was “Salaf As-Salih”; This Muslim branch, like the Sunnis, prefers to deepen their beliefs in the origins of the religion, which is why they like to be recognized by the name of “Salafists”. Wahhabism was founded within the border lines of what is now known as Saudi Arabia, as it was delimited, the initiator of this religion was Salaf As-Salih, who came from the Sunni region (which explains the similarity with the Sunni belief); the influence of this Arab movement increased exponentially thanks to the export of oil (together with other economic factors), thus gaining more public than the oldest Muslim branches, also being a symbol of inspiration throughout the world pointing this out as the reason why which the Wahab is the main protagonist in terrorist attacks globally.

In turn, Wahhabism also concurs with guilt regarding the great division of the Muslim people, these followers affirm that those Muslims with a different thought from Wahhabism thought were classified as “apostates”, which will make them worthy of an execution for apostasy (rejection from the Islamic word), it should be noted that this religion is also considered monotheistic (belief in a single God).

The Wahhabis stand out for the strict application of Sharia within the customs of their people, as well as having an immense thirst to expand their religious belief universally; In a similar way with the other Muslim currents, Wahhabism accepts the Koran as the biblical basis of Islam, they affirm that they directly interpret the word of Muhammad’s reflections. Both Wahhabism and Qutbism consider themselves to be the defenders of Islamic rules, they feel they have the capacity or responsibility to enforce their laws and execute all those who do not agree with them, however Wahhabism also defends the Islam’s idea of ​​purification, which has been contaminated with innovations, deviations and superstitions.
