The Noble Imam, Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah preserve him) stated:
Many from amongst the students of knowledge have concern for the Sunnah and its explanation along with knowing its men (from the chains of narrations) and its sciences (or terminology). However if you were to ask him about a verse from the Book of Allah, you will see that he is ignorant of it. This is a big mistake. It is a must that the Book and the Sunnah are two wings for you, O Student of knowledge.
Question posed to Shaykh Usaamah al-‘Utaybi (may Allah preserve him):
What is the authenticity of the narration, “For everyone who makes ijtihaad there’s a portion (of reward)”? Is the narration authentic or weak, or is there no origin for it? Benefit us, may Allah bless you. Continue reading →
The Noble Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allah preserve him) stated:
Many people believe that the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) is the one who will give (the people a drink of) water from the Pond. This we hear and read in their supplication: “Oh Allah give us a drink from his noble hand which we will never be thirsty after it (again).” Continue reading →
Explanation of the Hadeeth By Imaam Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him):
Question: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “There will come a time upon my ummah in which the one holding on to his Deen is like the one holding on to a hot piece of coal from the fire.” Is this Hadeeth authentic, and if it is can you explain it for us? May Allah reward you with good.
Answer: There’s no harm with it as far as we know. There’s no harm with it. It’s a good narration. It’s meaning is that there will come upon a person something from the calamities, the test, the trails which harm him to the point where he’s like the one who is holding on to the hot piece of coal throughout the trials and tribulation. This is due to the severity of his patience upon his Deen, upon his Emaan and being established upon it to where he’s like one who holds on to the hot piece of coal tightly due to the severity of pain and hardship that befalls him in that. The time of trials and tribulations is the time of harm from the enemy. And the refuge is sought with Allah. This is a reality that has taken place. Continue reading →
The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stated:
It’s not allowed for the woman to spend anything from her wealth except with the permission of her husband.
Shaykh Al-Albaanee (may Allaah have mercy upon him) stated:
This Hadeeth indicates that it is not permissible for the woman to spend from her wealth except with the permission of her husband. That’s from the complete authority/responsibility that our Lord, The Blessed and Most High, has given to him (the husband) over her (the wife). However it is not befitting for the husband, if he’s a (truly pious) Muslim, to take advantage of this ruling, thereby oppressing his wife and preventing her from spending her wealth in a manner that doesn’t harm the both of them. And how much does this right resemble the right of the guardian of the girl who cannot marry herself off without her guardian’s permission! If he (the guardian) leaves her to remain single (without right; not marrying her off), she may raise the affair to the Islamic legislative judge in order for him (the judge) to grant her justice. Likewise is the case regarding the ruling of the wealth of the woman. If the husband transgresses against her and prevents her from spending her wealth in the manner that’s legislated, the judge can also grant her justice (in this case). Therefore, there’s no problem with the ruling itself. Rather the problem is only in the (husband’s) evil implementation of it. So take note (of that). Continue reading →
