O Shaykh, does mere teaching in freemixing settings expell a person from the methodology of Ahlussunnah?
Whoever was from the Salafis but his Ēmān and relliance upon Allah became weak; and turned to teaching in freemixing schools, whilst attesting to that he is sinning, and notifies the people that he is wrong and mistaken, he would be a sinner and not an innovator.
His share of Salafiyyah and uprightness would diminish in accordance to his sin, whereby he is not given the title upon its absolute nor is it taken away from him upon its absolute.
