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.

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

أليس من آداب طالب العلم عدم الخوض في المسائل الكبار التي تتعلق بالأمة

أليس من آداب طالب العلم عدم الخوض في المسائل الكبار التي تتعلق بالأمة

“من فتاوى معالي الشيخ صالح الفوزان حفظه الله تعالى “

السؤال: أليس من آداب طالب العلم عدم الخوض فيما لا يعنيه خصوصا الدخول في المسائل الكبار التي تتعلق بالأمة؟

الجواب: من آداب طالب العلم كما ذكرنا أنه ما يبدأ مع فروع العلم ومع الخلاف بل يبدأ مع الأصول ومع الأبواب شيئا فشيئا هذا من آداب طالب العلم، وإذا اطلعت على الخلاف مثل أنت في مرحلة مثلكم أنتم تدرسون الآن المسائل الخلافية من باب تكميل المعلومات ومن باب معرفة الراجح من المرجوح وما عليه دليل وما ليس عليه دليل فهذا شيء ينفع بعد ما تبلغ هذه المرحلة مرحلة التخصص تطلع على الخلاف، ولكن ما تأخذ كل قول إنما تعرضه على الدليل فما وافق الدليل أخذت به وما خالف الدليل فإنك تتركه ولكن لا تتنقص العلماء إذا أخطئوا لا تتنقصهم اعرف لهم قدرهم وادعوا الله لهم، ولكن لا تأخذ بقوله إذا أخطأ عن غير قصد من أخطأ من غير قصد وهو من أهل الاجتهاد فله أجر على اجتهاده ويغفر له خطأه، خطأه مغفور فلا يحملك إذا رأيت رأي مرجوحا أو رأي مخالفا للدليل أن تتنقص صاحبه أو تتكلم فيه، نعم.

Extremism in Passing Judgements Upon People

The Noble Shaykh Abdus-Salām Ibn Burjis (may Allāh have mercy upon him) stated:

As for extremism in the passing of judgments upon the people: It is going beyond the (legislated) boundaries in connecting the ruling upon them of: disbelief or innovation or corruption. Concerning the matter of passing these rulings upon the specific individual, it’s a must that the conditions be fulfilled and the obstacles be removed, just as the the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaʿah have agreed upon. From this angle, the statements of the scholars have followed that the one who is going to pass these judgments upon the people regarding their creed or their integrity must be from the people of knowledge and piety. From that is the statement of al-Hāfiẓ adh-Dhahabi (may Allāh have mercy upon him): “The speech regarding the (condition of) men is not permissible except with complete knowledge/understanding and the complete fear (of Allāh).” Continue reading

Foundations of Good Character and Mannerisms

Points From The Friday Khutbah by Abu Yusuf Khaleefah (hafidhahullaah):

  1. The Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the best of the people in character. Allah stated to him:
وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ
“And indeed you are upon exalted character.” (Soorah Al-Qalam: 4)
  1. He (sallal laahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was sent to perfect the character of the people. He said, “Indeed I have only been sent to perfect the moral character” [1].
  2. Those who have good character are from the best of the people. The Prophet (sallal laahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed the best of you are those who are the best in character” [2].
  3. Those who have bad character are the worst of the people. The Prophet (sallal laahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said about the man who sought permission to enter, and before he entered the Prophet (sallal laahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said about him, “What an evil member or brother of his tribe he is.” When he entered the Prophet was kind to him and gentle. After the man left the Prophet (sallal laahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was questioned about his actions with the man and he responded, “Indeed the worst of the people is the one who the people keep away from out of fear of his bad behavior.”
  4. The most heavy of the things on the scales is having good character. The Prophet said, “Indeed the most heavy of things on the scales is good character” [3].

The Dunyaa Was in a State of Darkness

Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Haadi al-Madkhali (may Allah preserve him) stated:

Al-Imam Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahaab came and the dunyaa was in a state of darkness. He strove hard by calling to Allah and Allah guided many people by way of him. They were grave worshipers, superstitious, and misguided, and they became guided by way of him. Likewise, [when] Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah and the Imams of the Da’wah in India from amongst the Salafis came, the dunyaa was in a state of darkness. They spread this call and millions responded.
