What’s the first thing that comes to mind when someone says Wahhab? Allah’s beautiful name?? Nope… There is a common trend, especially in the media, and sometimes among Muslims to refer to other Muslims as Wahhabi, and to talk about ‘wahhabi fundamentalism’. Don’t ever call your Muslim brothers wahhabi, you are falling into the trick of using labels given to us by our enemies, and using divide and conquer.

The name Al-Wahhab, The Bestower of Blessings, is a very beautiful and honourable name, we shouldn’t be lowering it by using it in this manner, the same way we wouldnt call someone “Allahi”.

This article The Wahhabi Myth describes accurately how wahhabi this is a stinky label applied to us that we shouldn’t be using nor promoting.
