Rejecting The Truth

Shaykh ul-Islam (May Allah have Mercy on him):

So indeed a person may know that the truth is with other than him and, in spite of this, he rejects that due to his envy of him or due to seeking to be above him or due to the desire of the soul. And that desire causes him to transgress against him, reject that which he says by any way whilst in his heart, he knows that the truth is with him. 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.

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

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

A Warning To All Who Sit In The Masjid And Talk About The Dunyaa

Ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) came out upon a people who were speaking in the Masjid after the Adhaan so he prohibited them from talking. He said:

Indeed you have only come for the prayer, so either you pray or remain silent. For indeed, I heard the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم say:

ﺳَﻴَﻜُﻮﻥُ ﻓِﻲ ﺁﺧِﺮِ ﺍﻟﺰَّﻣَﺎﻥِ ﻗَﻮْﻡٌ ﻳَﺠْﻠِﺴُﻮﻥَ ﻓِﻲ ﺍﻟْﻤَﺴَﺎﺟِﺪِ ﺣِﻠَﻘًﺎ ﺣِﻠَﻘًﺎ ﺇِﻣَﺎﻣُﻬُﻢُ ﺍﻟﺪُّﻧْﻴَﺎ ، ﻓَﻼ ﺗُﺠَﺎﻟِﺴُﻮﻫُﻢْ ، ﻓَﺈِﻧَّﻪُ ﻟَﻴْﺲَ ﻟِﻠَّﻪِ ﻓِﻴﻬِﻢْ ﺣَﺎﺟَﺔٌ .
There will be at the end of the time people who sit in the Masaajid, circles upon circles. Their leader is the Dunyaa. Don’t sit with them for surely Allah has no need for them.

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)
