Foundations of Our Daʿwah

The Shaykh started off by informing us that the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) was sent with the Dīn of Truth that would be victorious over all religions, even if the kāfirs hate it. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islām), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun hate (it). [Sūrah al-Tawbah(9):33] Verily, We have sent you (O Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner.

The Crime of Speaking About Allāh Without Knowledge

Allāh the Most High said in the Qurʾān: قُلْ إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ رَبِّيَ الْفَوَاحِشَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَمَا بَطَنَ وَالْإِثْمَ وَالْبَغْيَ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَأَنْ تُشْرِكُوا بِاللَّهِ مَا لَمْ يُنَزِّلْ بِهِ سُلْطَانًا وَأَنْ تَقُولُوا عَلَى اللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ The meaning of which is: Say: “(But) the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are Al-Fawahish (great evil sins and every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly, sins (of all kinds), unrighteous oppression, joining partners (in worship) with Allāh for which He has given no authority,...

Questions and Answers from the Seminar: Men Are Known By the Truth

[Q1]: (A sister asks): There are those who ascribe to salafīyyah however when it comes to the people of bidʿah, they are very lenient and gentle with them, you will find them having hundred’s of excuses for them, however when it comes to their brothers and sisters from Ahl al-Sunnah, you find them constantly criticizing them and being harsh with them, instead of being patient and gentle with the salafiyyoon, what is your advice to them?

Salafī By Association?

This lecture was requested of the speaker, Abū Khadījah based on the good impact of a 13-year-old lecture entitled: Salafī by Association: Focus on Women, only this lecture was generalised to include both brothers and sisters. It was requested due to the alarming trend these days, of being Salafī by association, Salafiyyah upon fraternity, such that there is little concern for seeking knowledge, understanding this blessed manhaj and its principles, so much so, that if fitnah strikes or a beloved one takes a poor stance, one may follow him/her in that, treating the issue of Salafiyyah which...

Know That Islām Is the Sunnah and the Sunnah Is Islām – Cultural Tradition or Islamic Life?

“Know that Islām is the Sunnah and the Sunnah is Islām” is a lecture titled after the famous statement of Imām al-Barabahārī in his book Sharḥ al-Sunnah (Explanation of the Creed). Allāh the Majestic mentioned in the Qurʾān: الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islām as your religion.

The Ruling on Disliking Polygyny

[Q]: Some women give preference to the societal norms of Europe or the West in general; or in the un-Islamic lands, saying: “Plural marriage is unlawful.” While we have a legislative ruling permitting polygamy. What is the ruling on leveling this (type of) charge against Islām. [A]: Whoever hates plural marriage or claims that not having plural marriage is better, then he is a kāfir and an apostate from Islām. This is because he, and we seek refuge with Allāh, is a rejecter of the ruling of Allāh and hates that which Allāh has legislated. Allāh, Glorified be He, says: ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ كَرِهُوا...

The Impermissibility of Saying “In shāʾ Allāh” in a Duʿāʾ

In the summer of 2008, our brother Mūsá Richardson taught kitāb al-tawḥīd from the Ṣaḥīḥ of Imām al-Bukhārī. We picked up a significant benefit in the actions of supplications. When we call on Allāh for something and make a duʿāʾ, we are to be firm in this supplication and we must not say, in shāʾ Allāh (if Allāh wills). ie. “O Allāh, give me a righteous wife, in shāʾ Allāh”. Verily Allāh is the all-hearing and He does as He pleases.

From the Beautiful Aspects of Islām

The daʿwah (call) to single Allāh out with one’s worship, love, and hate for Allāh’s sake is based upon this principle, those who do not embrace and live by this are declared to be disbelievers. Warning against shirk, associating partners in any type of worship with Allāh and being serious in this warning, and having hatred for polytheism. Whoever would uphold these two principles, in truth, is a Muslim, a worshipper of Allāh, not worshipping other than him, having hope in Allāh alone. These are the two principles that all the Prophets and Messengers confirmed to. Shaykh ʿʿUbayd al-Jābirī...
