A Response That Will Prove the Evil and Blasphemous Nature of The Statements of Amina Wadud

Indeed, the praise is for Allāh; we praise Him and we seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allāh from the evil of ourselves and our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allāh guides, there is no one who can lead that person astray, and whomsoever Allāh leads astray, there is no guide for them. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshiped except Allāh and I bear witness that Muhammad is the servant and last messenger of Allāh to all of mankind and jinn. As to what follows:

Allāh has mentioned in the Qurān:

Indeed you have in the Messenger of Allāh a beautiful example. (al-Ahzāb: 36)

He also stated:

And indeed you (Oh Muhammad) are upon exalted character. (al-Qalam: 4)

Doubt Presented by the Grave Worshiper

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

There’s a doubt presented by the grave worshipers, and it is: The presence of the grave of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in his Masjid. The response to that is: The companions رضي الله عنهم did not bury him in his Masjid; they only buried him in the house of ‘Aaishah رضي الله عنها. 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)
