THE GROUP TO BE SAVED FROM HELL
Hadrat  Imam-i Rabbani says in the 67th letter of the second volume of his Maktubat: O you valuable and fortunate man! Among the seventy-three groups, only (those people who are in) the Madhhab  of Ahl as-sunnat wa 'l-Jama'at  will be saved from Hell. Each Muslim has to learn the belief of Ahl as-sunnat and correct his iman  accordingly. The majority of the Muslims who have spread over the world for centuries have been in the Ahl as-sunnat Madhhab. Millions of books written by hundreds of thousands of Ahl as-sunnat savants who have come by have spread and promulgated Islam all over the world. He who wants to be saved from Hell has to find these correct books and correct his iman by reading them. It is a heart-killing poison to set the heart on those evil, corrupt creeds and beliefs disagreeing with the belief written in the books of the Ahl as-sunnat savants. It takes one to endless death, to eternal torment. If there is slackness in deeds and worships, it may be forgiven. But being slack in belief will never be forgiven. Allahu ta'ala declares: "I shall never forgive shirk, which is disbelief. I shall forgive all the other sins of those people whom I like." - All shirk (attributing a partner to Allahu ta'ala) is disbelief (kufr), but all disbelief is not shirk.
