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)

From the Benefits of the Five Daily Prayers

The Noble Imām Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Sālih al-‘Uthaymīn (may Allāh have mercy upon him) said:

Allāh has obligated them (i.e. the five daily prayers) upon the servants. When He first obligated them, He obligated them as fifty prayers to be prayed in the day and night. And being that it was fifty prayers, it is an indication of the love of Allāh for them, His care for them and that they are an act of worship which is entitled to take up most of the person’s time because it is the connection between Allāh and His servants.

Cursing the One who has Cursed the People of Knowledge

Question posed to the Noble Shaykh Rabee’ al-Madkhalee (may Allah preserve him):

Q. Is it permissible for us to curse the one who the people of knowledge have cursed?
A. Cursing, don’t curse. However if the person has been declared to be an innovator and there’s a need to clarify his state for the purpose of advising the people, then clarify. You say about him: “So and so is an innovator. So and so has this affair with him.” As for cursing, then no, there’s to be no cursing. Don’t curse him. If the scholar has cursed him, you don’t curse him. If the scholar has ruled upon him with a ruling that is true concerning him and you see that the people are being harmed by way of him, then it is upon you to clarify his state in order that the people can be aware of his evil and be safe from his evil. As for cursing him, then no, and (know that) it doesn’t benefit. Continue reading
