 In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  The Means to Attaining a Tranquil Heart

Our noble Shaykh, ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī delivers a very important reminder concerning the means to attaining a tranquil heart. Translated by Abū ʿUways (raḥimahullāh), this highly beneficial reminder outlines the means to protect oneself from a heart which is constricted and in distress due to the abandonment of the Qurʾān, Sunnah and the remembrance of Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿāla).

Benefit: How to Utilise Smartphones Wisely

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

All praise and thanks belong to Allāh, the Lord of all creation. May the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon His servant and Messenger, our Prophet Muḥammad, and upon his family, Companions and whosoever follows them in righteousness until the Last Day.

Indeed, the greatest of blessings which Allāh has bestowed upon the Muslims is that He has guided them to al-Islām, taking them out of darkness into light. There is no blessing equal to it nor is there a blessing which is close to it [in virtue]. From the greatest of blessings bestowed upon the Muslim, after the blessing of al-Islām, are the blessings of sanity and good health. And from being thankful to Allāh for these blessings is that you utilise them in obedience to Him and everything that pleases Him in the Dunyá and in the Hereafter. Likewise, you abstain from all that which is in disobedience to Allāh and displeases Him in the Dunyá and the Hereafter.

The use of smartphones and their likes have become prevalent in our times. It is a blessing for those who use them for goodness and a punishment for those who use them for evil. The intelligent one who is sincere to himself is he who restricts the use (of the smartphone) to that which benefits him in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. So he uses it to take and receive permissible calls and as a means to (acquire) beneficial knowledge, which is easily accessible through them (i.e. smartphones).

As for utilising it for other than good, from that which harms the Muslim in the worldly life and the Hereafter, then it should be left off and cautioned against so that the eyes and the heart may be saved from blindness because constantly looking at these smartphones will weaken your sight and it can be a cause for blindness — a loss of this great blessing (i.e. eyesight). Even greater than this is the blindness of the heart which exposes the Muslim to the sickness of desires, which corrupts one's character and the sickness of doubts which corrupts one’s mind. Allāh has mentioned the severity of the blindness of the heart in His statement:

فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَٰكِن تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُورِ
Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind.
[Sūrah al-Ḥajj, 22:46]

Benefit: Taqwá, Deeds and Behaviour

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

The Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam said:

(( اتَّقِ الله حيثما كنتَ وأتبِعِ السَّيِّئةَ الحَسَنَة تَمحُهَا وخالقِ النَّاسَ بخُلُقٍ حَسَن ))

«Observe taqwá of Allāh wherever you may be; follow up a bad deed with a good deed and it will wipe it out; and behave well towards others.»

Benefit: Deliberately Inhaling Incense Breaks the Fast

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

[Q]: Is it permissible for the fasting person to smell perfume and ʿoūd [type of incense]?

[A]: Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz: One should not inhale ʿoūd. There is no problem with [smelling] the other types of perfumes, except bukhūr [incense]. As for ʿoūd itself, it should not be inhaled because some of the people of knowledge say that if ʿoūd is inhaled it breaks one’s fast. This is due to some of its elements going to the brain [therefore affecting the fast]. It also actively spreads [throughout the body]. But smelling it unintentionally does not break one’s fast.

Commentary of Ustādh Mūsá Richardson: Important cultural note for those who do not know: In the Arab lands, it is a common practice in gatherings to pass around the ʿoūd [a type of incense] burner, and each person would take his shimāgh [headwear] and make like a quick "facial sweatlodge" [for lack of better words] by wrapping his headwear around the incense burner for a moment. With this kind of intensity, the smoke is inhaled in a way that is similar to how cigarettes are smoked. This is important to know, so that some of us do not believe it to be impermissible to burn incense while fasting or smell it, or that it breaks the fast. What breaks the fast is inhaling it intensely, just like if you put your face over a pot of steaming food and inhaled over and over again. In such a case, you would find that you have actually ingested something from the steam. So it is permissible to smell incense in the room, or food, or any other thing, so long as you do not inhale and ingest it. The fatwá quoted should be understood based on this, and Allaah knows best.
