Shaykh ‘Ubayd clarifies the usage of the term “Al-Wahabiyyah”
This (female) questioner from France says that she has just professed Islaam and always hears of (the term) “Al-Wahabiyyah", so she desires clarification from the Shaykh regarding this issue, may Allaah protect him.
I ask Allaah, O my daughter, that He establish you on Islaam and the Sunnah. O Allaah, establish her! [The Shaykh made this supplication three times]
(The term) “Al-Wahabiyyah” is attributed to Ash-Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abdul Wahhaab (رحمه الله) because he was the one who revived the call of Tawheed in the middle part of the twelfth century of the hijrah. He was aided upon this revival by the Ameer, the Imaam, Muhammad ibn Saud, may Allaah have mercy upon them both.
This ascription (Al-Wahabiyyah) is used by the enemies; the enemies of Tawheed, the enemies of the Sunnah. So it has become, that every enemy of Tawheed and the Sunnah ascribes the person of Tawheed and the Sunnah with being “Wahabee". This is the explanation of the word “Al-Wahabiyyah” .
And perhaps you should know that it is an evil ascription both blameworthy and faulty, because Ash-Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abdul Wahhaab (رحمه الله) did not ascribe himself with this. Likewise, this ascription was never attributed to him by the Scholars of the da’wah after him, nor from amongst his sons, grandchildren and brothers of the da’wah up until the present time.
It is not known from anyone from amongst them attributing him with this ascription except the people of superstitions, innovations, and Shirk. They are the ones who ascribe the people of the Sunnah with this ascription.

The Purpose of the term 'Wahhabi'
Shaykh Muhammad Khalil Harras
Translation by: Aboo Waheeda as-Salafee
Is there a religious sect called 'wahhabi' ?
There is no such sect with this name.
Rather this is just a nick name that the people of falsehood have branded it on the people who uphold the truth , the people of tawheed (Oneness of Allaah in everything).
And this name they refer it to Shaykh Muhammad ibn AbdulWahhab (may Allaah have mercy on him.)
And he is a great Imaam from the Imaams of who brought religious rectification in the lands of Najd. 
Thus he called to going back and establishing Tawheed (after people were into shirk).
And reviving the methodology of the Salaf (pious predecessors) .
And in this effort of his; the clan of Saud helped him; until they managed to relinquish and remove almost all the shirk and bid'a (innovations) , like calling on the dead people in the graves, and extremism in praising other humans.
Thus all of the lands of Najd returned to Tawheed (Oneness of Allaah in everything) and Ikhlaas (sincerity in worshipping of Allaah)
May Allaah have mercy on them and reward them greatly.
 Najd is part of The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

King ‘Abdul ‘Azeez makes a clarification of the term “Wahhabism”
Written by/Said by: King 'Abdul 'Azeez ibn 'Abdur Rahmaan al-Sa'ud (رحمه الله)
Taken from: Mujmalu I'tiqaadil A'immatis-Salafee, Pages 117-118
King ‘Abdul ‘Azeez (رحمه الله) said:
“They have labeled us with the term ‘Wahhabiyoon’, and they have named our madhhab as ‘Wahhabi’ considering it as a specific madhhab, and this is a wicked mistake, appearing from the false propaganda which has been spread by the people of gossip. We are not the people of a new madhhab or new ‘aqeedah. Our ‘aqeedah is the ‘aqeedah of the rightly guided predecessors, we respect the four Imaams and we make no distinction between Maalik, ash-Shaafi’ee, Ahmad, and Abu Haneefah, all of them are deeply respected in our view. This ‘aqeedah is the one, that was re-established by Shaykhul Islaam, Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahaab (رحمه الله), and the one that he called towards. This is our ‘aqeedah and it is the structured ‘aqeedah upon the tawheed of Allaah (سبحانه وتعالى), free from defect, far removed from any innovation.”
