The mission of Masjid Tawheed Wa Sunnah (MTWS) is to support the propagation, implementation, and presentation of Tawheed, the authentic Sunnah and ad-Dawatus Salafiyyah, while aiding its people, everywhere.
Our goals is that of the goals based upon the methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah. They are the goals of those who stick firm to the ways of those who have preceded them. You may notice that they resemble the goals and calls of other salafee organizations established to call to the Sunnah. This is because Ahlus Sunnah / as-Salafiyyoon only differ in time and place. Their creed and methodology are the same!
Returning to the Noble Qur’aan and the Prophetic Sunnah and understanding the both of them upon the methodology of the Salaf-us-Saalih. This is from the command of our Lord
“And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad, prayers and peace are upon him,) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell – what an evil destination” an -Nisaa 115
“So if they believe in the like of that which you believe, then they are rightly guided” al-Baqarah – 137
Purification of the Muslims from shirk and it’s various shades, cautioning them from innovation and foreign rejected practices and ideologies introduced into Islaam. Purifying Islaam from baseless explanations of the Qur’aan that do not return to the understanding of our Salaf. Purifying the Sunnah from weak and fabricated narrations that have proven to destroy the clearness and purity of Islaam and has also proven to prevent the advancement of the Muslims. This shall be taken on those of knowledge as the Messenger of Allah (saws) said “This knowledge shall be carried in each generation by those who repel the distortions of those who go too far, the misguidance of those who are astray, and the opinions of the ignorant” and follow the verse of Allah “ and Help you one another in Al -Birr and At -Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression”
Cultivation and Education of the Muslims upon the authentic Islaam. Calling them to practice its laws and adorn themselves with its virtues and manners which we bring about for the pleasure of Allaah and will assure for them happiness and success. Assisting one another so as to be that group of people mentioned in the Qur’aan who are saved from loss and destruction. Working by the ayat “and recommend one another to the truth and recommend one another to patience ”(Asr –3) and Allah’s command:
“Be you Rabbaniyoon (learned men of religion who practice what they know and also preach others), because you are teaching the Book, and you are studying it." (Aali Imraan 79)
Reviving the correct Islaamic scholastic manhaj (methodology) in light of the Qur’aan, the Sunnah upon the way of the Salaf of this Ummah. Removing the stagnant state of blind following of madhabs and ideologies. Removing the blind-tunneled vision of partisanship, which is unfortunately a severe sometimes-incurable virus that controls the thinking of many of the Muslims and has distanced them from the true brotherhood of Islaam. We do this following the verse “Hold on tight all of you to the rope of Allah and do not divide” and the statement of the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallaam) “And be all of you brothers”
Presentation of realistic Islaamic solutions to contemporary problems, and strive to resume a true Islaamic way of life and to establish a true Islaamic society by way of consultation with the 'Ulamaa of this da'wah.
Advancement towards establishing a correct Muslim lifestyle and community starting with our homes upon the Prophetic methodology. Developing a scholastic and religious community. Implementing the rule of Allaah in the earth upon the methodology of tasfiyyah (purification) and tarbiyyah (education and cultivation) based upon Allaah saying:
“and purifying them (from sins by their following him), and instructing them (in) the Book (the Qur'aan) and Al Hikmah [the wisdom and the Sunnah of the Prophet (saws)” (Aali Imraan 164)
Leaving off arguing with the People of Innovations and Desires, or sitting with them, listening to their words or presenting any of their doubts (to others). Encouraging the Muslims to do the same.
We plan to achieve these above goals with the help of Allaah and understanding that Allaah says:
"Verily Allaah does not change that which is with a people until they change that which is with in themselves” (ar-Ra'd –11)
“That is so because Allaah will never change a grace which He has bestowed on a people until they change what is in their own selves. And verily, Allaah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” (Al -Anfaal–53)
and by achieving the following:
- To connect the Muslims of North Carolina to the well-versed scholars as well as warn them against the scholars of evil and the people of innovations and desires without having any shame as this is the methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah.
- To bring the people of knowledge to North Carolina so that the Muslims here and surrounding states may began to learn the deen in which we all love.
- Following the truth, absolutely and unconditionally in both narration (riwaayah) and opinion (ra’i) without specifying a specific person or group besides the Messenger (saws) as someone to be followed in all circumstances.
