The doctrine of al-wala’ wa-l-bara’ (loyalty and disavowal) is perhaps one of the most influential and controversial doctrines in Salafism. It says that Muslims should remain loyal exclusively to Muslims and must distance themselves from all other religions and actively hate their followers. The contemporary Jordanian Salafi thinker Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi has become famous for making the doctrine of al-wala’ wa-l-bara’ the foundation for his doctrine of jihad. His work is the basis of what has become known as Jihadi Salafism.
