Oh You Who Does Ruqya…

Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymīyyah (may Allāh have mercy upon him):

If the Jinn is from the Afārīt and he (the one performing the Ruqyaa) is weak, they can harm him. Therefore, the likes of this person is to protect himself with the recitation of that which gives refuge and protection like Āyah al-Kursī, the Mu’auwwidhāt (Sūrah al-Falaq and Sūrah an-Nās), the making of the prayer, supplication and the likes of that from that which strengthens the faith. He is also to keep away from the acts of sins which (cause the enemies) to gain authority over him. Continue reading

Defining Ḥizbiyyah

Shaykhul-Islām ibn Taymiyyah (may Allāh have mercy upon him) mentioned regarding Ḥizbiyyah:

As for the leader of the Ḥizb, he is the head of the group which has become a Ḥizb. If they are united upon that which Allāh has commanded with, as well as His Messenger without any addition or subtraction, then they are believers. For them is that which is for them and upon them is that which is upon them. And if they have indeed added to that or subtracted (from it) – like having Taʿaṣṣub (fanaticism) for whoever enters into their Ḥizb (group/party) based upon the truth and falsehood and turning away from the one who has not entered into their Ḥizb whether he is upon the truth or falsehood – then this is from the separation (into groups and parties) which Allāh and His Messenger have condemned.

The Knowledge is Provisions from Allah

A precious benefit from the Noble Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him):

Allah the High stated:

ومن يتق الله يجعل له مخرجا ـ ويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب

“And whoever fears Allah, He will make a way out for him (from every difficulty) and provide for him from where he didn’t perceive. (Surah 65:2-3)”

One Does Not Cease To Seek (Religious) Knowledge

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

The person does not cease to seek the knowledge (of the religion) and faith. When something from the (matters of) knowledge becomes clear to him that which was hidden from him, he follows it. This person is not (to be considered) one who wavers back and forth. Rather this person is one who is guided, one who Allah has increased in guidance.

Seeking Du’aa From The Needy Person To Whom One Has Given Sadaqah Is Not Appropriate

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allaah have mercy upon him) stated:

Whoever sought du’aa or praise from the poor people (after giving them Sadaqah) has gone outside (the interpreted meaning of) this verse:

إنما نطعمكم لوجه الله لا نريد منكم جزاءً ولا شكوراً
“(Saying): ‘We feed you seeking Allaah’s Countenance only. We wish for no reward, nor thanks from you.” (al-Insaan: 9) Continue reading
