A Merciful Call

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Rabee’ bin Hādi al-Madkhali (may Allah preserve him) stated:

I advise you all, oh brothers, that you traverse upon the path of the Salaf as-Sālih (in matters of) learning, character and in calling (to Allah). No harshness, no extremism, a call (to Allah) that is accompanied with forbearance, mercy and exalted character. By Allah, the Dawah as-Salafiyyah will spread by way of these good methods. I say: Some people wrongfully ascribe (things) to this Manhaj. They have come about with evil methods and characteristics. From it, attacking Salafiyyah in the name of Salafiyyah. They have distorted the Dawah as-Salafiyyah with this (evil) way (of theirs). I advise the youth to fear Allah azza wa jall, learn the beneficial knowledge, perform the righteous actions and call the people to Allah with knowledge and wisdom. Continue reading

Be Keen On Benefiting Your Brothers And Sisters

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Ibn Baz (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:

The legislation for the Muslim when he hears a benefit is that he is to convey to others. Likewise the Muslimah conveys to others what she has heard from the knowledge due to the statement of the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم:

ﺑﻠﻐﻮﺍ ﻋﻨﻲ ﻭﻟﻮ ﺁﻳﺔ
Convey on me even if it is one matter. (Sahih al-Bukhari 3461)

Also when he would address the people in a sermon he would say:

ﻟﻴﺒﻠﻎ ﺍﻟﺸﺎﻫﺪ ﺍﻟﻐﺎﺋﺐ ﻓﺮﺏ ﻣﺒﻠﻎ ﺃﻭﻋﻰ ﻣﻦ ﺳﺎﻣﻊ
Let the one who witnesses this speech convey to the one who is absent, for it is possible that the one who the information has been conveyed to has more understanding than the one who actually heard it. (Sahih al-Bukhari 1741)
