Is this book Salafi?

Question ID: 17338

Assalamualaikum learned mufti saab,
I have a query egarding a publication, titled –
” A Critical Analysis of The Modernists and Hadeeth Rejectors”
By: Sajid A. Kayum
Published by Quraan Sunnah Educational Programs
On page 28 of this book (Pg35 of the MSWORD) I see flwg :
” Despite Imam Abu Hanifa’s condemnation of Kalaam; many of those
who claim to follow his madhhab like the Maturidis and Deobandis
continue their indulgence in Kalaam”
Mufti saab, I am a Tableeghi and a follower of Shaikhul Ummat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi and also Deobandi
I suspect This author and Publication is Salafi in thought . I am confused bcz he writes that the Salafis belong to “Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah.
My question is – Can I read this book , is it congruent with our concept of thinking.. Is it out and out SALAFI.
I await your advice. jazakallah Khairun.

The current day 'Salafis' who are also called Ahle Hadith, La Madhabiha, or Ghair Muqallid are not from the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'ah. Avoid reading books written by these deviants such as the one you quoted.
