didn’t the prophet(saw) say that the majority of muslims will be the saved sect? if this is true then doesnt this mean that deobandis/sufis/asharis/maturidis are NOT from the saved sect since the salafi(wahhabis/atharis) are the majority of muslims now days?
Generally deviant sects misinterpret the words ‘Al-Jama’h and ‘As-sawad Al-A’zam’ as majority in number to mislead innocent Muslims while these words refer to majority in Haq-truth. The people who are on Haq will be regarded as majority even if they are few. The yardstick in Islaam is Haq and not the majority alone. For, majority sometimes will be on Zalalah-wrong as the Glorious Qur’aan has stated:
“And if you obey most of those on the earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah’s path. They follow nothing but conjecture, and they do nothing but lie”. (suratul-An’am 6:116)
“And truly, most men are rebellious.” (Suratul-Maaidah 5:49)
“But most of people do not know”. (Suratul-A’raf 7:187)
“And verily, many people are heedless of Our Aayat”. (Suratu-Yunus 10: 92)
Therefore, the Islamic Shariah gives importance to the Haq and not to the majority in number. If the majority of people are wrong, they will be considered minority and the minority will be regarded as majority if they are on Haq. Now everyone can easily decide who are MAJORITY and who areMINORITY.
