The source of Ahlus-Sunnah in derivation is the Book ‎and the Sunnah. They take from them, derive their ‎evidences from them, and rely upon them. They do not ‎deviate from them in the least. Rather, they are as Al-‎Awzaa’ee said: ‎

‎“We go with the Book and the Sunnah wherever ‎they go.”‎

They do not invent anything from themselves. Shaykh ‎Al-Islaam, may Allaah have mercy upon him, stated: ‎

‎“The creed does not belong to me nor to anyone ‎greater than myself. The creed belongs to Allaah ‎and His Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).”‎

So from Allaah is the Message and upon the Messenger ‎is the conveyance of the Message and upon us is belief ‎and submission. Due to this, we find the books of ‎Ahlus-Sunnah beginning with mention of the source ‎before explaining the creed. This is that which we ‎derive from that which the Messenger of Allaah ‎‎(sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) would constantly do within the Friday ‎sermon. He would always say in the beginning of it:‎

‎“As to proceed; indeed the truest speech is the ‎Book of Allaah the best guidance is the ‎guidance of Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and the ‎worst of all matters and the newly invented ‎matters.”‎

And his (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), repetition of that every Friday ‎contains emphasis for the importance of giving due ‎consideration to this source and the necessity of ‎preserving and safeguarding it.

Concerning his statement: ‎تَمسَّـكْ‎ “Cling” Clinging in the ‎language means: To hold fast to something and be ‎steadfast upon it. This is derived from the statement of ‎Allaah the Exalted:‎

And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope ‎of Allaah and be not divided among yourselves, ‎and remember Allaah’s Favor on you, for you ‎were enemies one to another but He joined ‎your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you ‎became brethren and you were on the brink of ‎a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus ‎Allaah makes His Ayât (proofs, evidences, ‎verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,) clear to ‎you, that you may be guided. ‎

Likewise the statement of Allaah, the Exalted:‎

And as to those who hold fast to the Book and ‎perform the prayer; certainly, We shall never ‎waste the reward of those who do righteous ‎deeds.

Concerning the “…Rope of Allaah” the scholars have ‎several statements concerning its meaning. The ‎majority of them, according to the scholars of Tafseer, ‎say that it means: the Qur’aan; as has been mentioned ‎by Ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy upon him. ‎And it is that which is intended by the poet here, ‎because he mentions the Sunnah thereafter. ‎

The poet, may Allaah have mercy upon him, within his ‎statement: “Hold tightly to the Rope of Allaah,” is ‎addressing the Sunnee and saying to him: Let your ‎point of reference always and eternally be the Book of ‎Allaah and along with your clinging to it: “Follow the ‎guidance” meaning: the Sunnah. The term guidance ‎within the Book and the Sunnah is applied to two ‎affairs:‎

The first is At-Tawfeeq and inspiration. ‎

The second is indicating clarification and ‎directing
