SINIRLARI BELİRLENEMEYEN DİNÎ BİR OLUŞUM: EHL-İ SÜNNET VE’L-CEMAAT
AN UNLIMITED RELIGIOUS SECT: AHL AL-SUNNA WA'L-CAMAA

Sıddık KORKMAZ [1]


In the historical process, Ahl al-Sunna wa'l-Camaa has been established as a main structure of religion, apart from the sects like Khavarij, Murjie, Shia, Mutazila, and their branches. Its formation has been completed in a long period both as conceptual and a form of thought. It is not accurate to consider this formation like other sects. Because it has not feature of sect circulated and followed by a crtain group of people. Besides, by leaving extreme points ruled by other sects, it is seen as an interpretation of moderate line in Islam according to time and circumstances. Nevertheless, it is possible to mention some religious formations which contradicted each other in ahl al-sunna wa’l-camaa. The differences which it has contained can be seen as an evidence, proof and examples of freedom of thought. Despite of differences in the schools of ahl al- sunna wa'l-camaa the basic tenets of religion is one of the shared points. Because of these features it is quite difficult to fit it into a particular frame and determine its boundaries. The scholars belonging to this formation had not accepted the political problems as a religious problem. They had rather considered the political problems without any religious view and consequently they had improved a manner of conduct based on mainly the concepts of justice and oppression. In brief, ahl al-sunna wa’l-camaa is in a position of continuation and a lively representation of the Islamic main structure.
