Shaykh Salih al-Fawzaan was asked in his lesson on Sharh Fath al-Majeed (23/04/1434H) (MP3):

فضيلة الشيخ وفقكم الله يقول : يقول بعض طلبة العلم إنه لا ينبغي لأحد أن يقول أنا سلفي لأن في هذا تزكية للنفس فهل ما يقوله صحيح ؟

Esteemed Shaykh, may Allah grant you success, he (the questioner) says: Some of the students of knowledge say it is not desirable for anyone to say 'I am Salafi' because this is commendation of oneself. Is it correct what he says?

To which he replied:

إذا كان يقول هذا من باب تزكية نفسه لا يجوز هذا نعم ، اما إذا كان يقوله من باب البيان لأنه بين أحزاب وجماعات مخالفة ويتبرأ منهم ، ويقول أنا سلفي أنا على منهج السلف من باب البراءة هذا طيب ، نعم

If he says this from the angle of commending himself, it is not permissible. Yes, as for when he says it from the angle of clarifying, because he is amidst the various opposing parties and groups and (desires) to free himself from them, and says 'I am Salafi, I am upon the methodology of the Salaf' from the angle of freeing himself (from them), then this is good. Yes.

Translated by Abu Iyaad.
