The Permissibility of Reciting The Qurān While Reclining

On the authority of The Mother of the Believers Aaishah رضي الله عنها she said: “The Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم would recline on my lap while I was menstruating then start reading the Qurān.” [Bukhari 297, Muslim 301]

Al-Haafith Ibn Rajab رحمه الله stated: “In this narration is the evidence for reciting the Qurān while reclining, laying down or being one’s side. That enters into the statement of Allah:

” الَّـذِينَ يَـذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِـيَاماً وَقُعُـوداً وَعَـلَى جُنُـوبِهِم”

[آل عمران/١٩١]

“Those who remember Allah while standing, sitting and lying down on their sides.”

[Soorah Aali ‘Imraan:191]

Obligation of The Believer in The Month of Ramadan

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Ibn Baaz  (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

That which is obligatory upon the believer is to stay away from the prohibitions of Allāh. The acts of disobedience are prohibited at all times and in all places. However, in this noble month (Ramaḍān), it’s obligatory that staying away (from that which Allāh has prohibited) is even more so. Continue reading

Those Who Leave Off The Maghrib Prayer in Congregation Due to Breaking the Fast

The Noble scholar Shaykh Salih al-Fawzān  (may Allāh preserve him) said:

Here, there’s a matter which is a must that attention be brought to, and it is that some of the people sit at the table where a person’s fast is broken, have dinner and leave off praying Maghrib in congregation in the Masjid. As a result of that, the person commits a great mistake, and it is staying back from  praying (the Maghrib) in congregation in the Masjid. He causes himself to miss out on a magnificent reward and subjects himself to the punishment (of Allāh). That which is legislated for the fasting person is that he first breaks his fast, then he goes (to the Masjid) for the prayer, then afterwards he has his dinner.

Pondering Over the Qurān is Following It

Al-Hasan Al-Basri  (may Allāh have mercy upon him) stated about the statement of Allāh:

كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
A blessed book We have revealed to you in order that they may ponder over its verses and in order that those of understanding may reflect.” (Saad: 29)

The reflecting over its verses is nothing but following it with actions. By Allāh, it’s not the memorization of its letters and the wasting of its prescribed limits. It’s to the point that one of them says: 《By Allāh, I read the entire Qurān and I do not leave off one letter》 but he indeed has left off all of it (in practice). You don’t see in him the mannerisms of the Qurān nor the actions. It’s to the point that one of them says: 《By Allāh, indeed I read the Sūrah in one breath》By Allāh, these individuals are not (true) reciters, nor scholars, nor wise, nor people of religious piety. When have the (true) reciters ever said the likes of this?! May Allāh not increase the likes of these individuals among the Muslims!! Continue reading

Thinking Ill Of Your Brother’s Intentions

From Ulama Audio: Dr. Abdur Rahman Omaisan answers a question presented during the recent conference in Edmonton, Canada in which someone asked:

What is your advice to an individual who accuses his brothers with loving fame and leadership without presenting any evidence to this allegation?

A beautifully presented answer, fortified by evidence from the book of Allah, the Sunnah of his Messenger salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and adorned by statements of the scholars of old.

May Allah reward the sheikh lavishly for his efforts in teaching the religion and dispelling confusion. Ameen.

هناك من يطعن في خلص إخوانه، بدعوى أنهم متميعون

:قال الشيخ محمد بن رمزان الهاجري وفقه الله

فهناك من يطعن في خلص إخوانه ، بدعوى أنهم متميعون وهم والله أوضح منه وأقوى منه ، لكن لم يوافقوه في هوى قد مال إليه ، أو باطل قد تجرأ عليه ، ولذلك يريد ليوافقوه في باطله وفي ما عنده ، فهم لم يوافقوه ، فادعى زورا وبهتانا أنهم على غير قوة وثبات في الحق ، وهذا من إتهام الخلق بالقول المجرد ، لا بالحجة ولا بالبيان ولا بالأدلة ، فمثل هؤلاء أحكامهم ساقطة لا يلتفت إلى سماعها ، لأنها فيها جور وفيها حيد وفيها ظلم وفيها تعدي ، فلا يؤخذ إلا القول الصحيح الذي معه الأدلة والبرهان ، مما قال بلسان أو خط ببنان ، أما مجرد الكلام والدعاوى فهذه لا يلتفت لها

If a Salafi Goes Astray Due to You

Shaykh ‘Āyid Ash-Shamri  (may Allah preserve him) stated:

This salafi, if he was to go astray due to you, due to your character, due to your harshness, due to your evil thoughts and your lies upon him–if he was to go astray (because of this), you will be held accountable (for that) on the Day of Judgment. This salafi who teaches the books of the Salaf in opposition to the Ikhwānis, in opposition to the Tablīghis, in opposition to the Takfīris, in opposition to the Ashā‘irah and the Sūfis, he teaches Tawhīd, the Sunnah and Salāh–if he was to stop the classes because of you and your tale-carrying, you will be questioned (about this) in front of Allah (‘azza wa-jall). Therefore fear Allah O brothers! Continue reading

حكم السُّكوتِ على خَطأ المخالِف خَشْيةَ الفُرْقَة

الشـيَِـٌخ العلاّمــة عبد المحسن العبَّاد البدر -حفظه اللَّــْـْہ ورعاه

السؤال: ما نصِيحتُك -حفظك الله- لمن يقول: الردُّ على الْمُخالِف يُسبِّب الفُرْقَة بين المسلمِينَ؛ ولكن الواجِب السُّكوتُ على الخطأ؛ حتَّى تجتمِعَ كلمةُ المسلمِين؟

.الجواب: هذا غيرُ صحيح! هذا باطلٌ! بل الخطأ -يعني- يُبيَّن ويُوضَّح، ولا يُترَك
.وأمَّا قضية التَّرك من أجل أن هذا يُسبِّب فُرقَة؛ بل الفُرقَة حصلت بالمخالفات، والخروج عن الجادَّةِ؛ فالواجب هو بيان الحقِّ، والردُّ على الْمُبطِل

.وإذا كان الذي حصل منه الخطأ ليس من أهل البدع؛ وإنما هو من أهل السُّنَّة -وحصل الخطأ- فإنَّه يُناصَح ويُرفَق بِه؛ لأنَّ المقصود هو الإصلاحُ Continue reading
