Commonly referred to as Wahhabism, Salafi is a Sunni Islamic movement that holds the first three generations of Muslims, Muhammad's companions and the two succeeding generations after them, up as models of how Islam should be practiced. This principle is derived from a Sunni hadith attributed to the Prophet Muhammad which read, "The people of my generation are the best, then those who come after them, and then those who come after them."
