Hope and Fear: The Two Wings of a Believer

The illustrious scholar, Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb رحمه الله (d. AH 1206) states in his Kitāb al-Tawhīd: أَفَأَمِنُوا مَكْرَ اللَّهِ فَلا يَأْمَنُ مَكْرَ اللَّهِ إِلا الْقَوْمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ Did they then feel secure against the Plan of Allāh. None feels secure from the Plan of Allāh except the people who are the losers. [Sūrah al-ʾArāf, 7:99] The noble scholar, Shaykh al-ʿAllāmah Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī رحمه الله (d. AH 1429) comments on this verse: The people of knowledge mention that the servant is required to be in a state between hope and fear. The servant should neither feel...

A Simple List of Conditions for Wūḍūʾ (Ablution)

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) mentioned: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا قُمْتُمْ إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ فَاغْسِلُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ وَأَيْدِيَكُمْ إِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ وَامْسَحُوا بِرُءُوسِكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُمْ إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ ۚ O you who believe! When you intend to offer the prayer, wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles. [al-Māʾidah, 5:6] This noble verse obligates that wuḍūʾ (ablution) must be performed before prayer and indicates which body parts should be washed or wiped during wūḍūʾ,...

Why Is Ḥanīfiyyah Specifically Ascribed to Ibrāhīm (عليه السلام)?

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī (رحمه الله) said:1 “Ḥanīfiyyah is the easy and tolerant religion of Ibrāhīm (عليه السلام). It is to sincerely worship Allāh alone. If you are asked, ‘What is ḥanīfiyyah?’, the answer is, ‘It is to sincerely and correctly worship Allāh alone.’” Ḥaīfiyyah is the easy and tolerant religion of Ibrāhīm (عليه السلام). It is to sincerely worship Allāh alone. Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī Ibn Jarīr al-Ṭabarī (d. 310 AH) (رحمه الله) said: “It has been authentically proven that ḥanīfiyyah is not limited to circumcision [for males] or preforming Ḥajj, rather, it is—as we have previously...

Combatting 21st Century Violent Extremism

They permitted the killing of children, yet they did not allow the eating of any fruits from the trees without paying for it! They tired themselves out with worship, and would frequently stay awake, yet they raised their swords against Muslims. Even Satan himself could not have imagined the extent of their evil! Ibn al-Jawzī, Talbīs Iblīs, p. 91

The Beauty of Islām

    From the points discussed: Islām unifies all good and beneficial guidance for mankind Islām recognises and requires Muslims to believe in all the Prophets and Messengers sent As the final revelation, Islām abrogates all which came before it (the Psalms, the Torah, the Gospel) Islām is balanced and palatable, moderate, not extreme Islam rejects all forms of extremist behaviour Islam disallows following superstitions Islam prohibits magic and sorcery Islām is built around truthfulness and uprightness Worship in Islām is easy, simplified, and provides an intimate connection between the created...

ISIS, Al-Qaida, Daesh: How Terrorist Groups Corrupt Muslim Youth

Islām requires its callers to invite to religious dialogue with wisdom and understanding, utilising the best of manners. The “War on Terror” from the Islamic perspective is a war against the deviation and corruption of takfīrī groups who declare Muslims to be non-Muslims. At its root, it is a battle to dispel a foreign corrupt theology that oppresses Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The speaker explains that these corrupt writers and thinkers have capitalised on general ignorance. Terrorism is built upon injustice (and the removal of basic rights). In its essence, it cannot be a religion...

The Scholars of Ahl-al-Sunnah Are Never Forgotten

Although centuries have passed, we have not forgotten the scholars of Ahl-al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah—such as al-Ḥasan al-Baṣrī, Yaḥyá ibn Ma‘īn, Abū Zurʿah al-Rāzī, Abū Ḥātim al-Rāzī, al-Awzāʿī, Sufiyān al-Thawrī, al-Fudayl ibn ʿĪyyāḍ, ‘Abdullāh ibn al-Mubārak, Mālik, al-Shāfiʿī, Aḥmad, al-Layth ibn Saʿd, al-Lālakāʾī, Ibn Baṭṭah, al-Baghawī, al-Barbahārī, Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, and Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb (رحمهم الله)—because of their revival of the Messenger’s (ﷺ) Sunnah.1 As for the scholars of Ahl-al-Bidʿah—such as al-Jahm ibn Ṣafwān, Wāṣil ibn ‘Atāʿ, ʿAmr ibn ʿUbayd, Maʿbad al-Juhanī,...

Explanation of “Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh” and Examples of Conforming to His Sunnah

Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī mentions:1 What is the concise meaning of the statement, “Muḥammad is the messenger of Allāh”? It means that a legitimately responsible individual acknowledges and attests to the final universal message of Muḥammad (ﷺ). As for its detailed meaning, it is as the shaykh [Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb] mentioned, that it consists of four aspects: Obeying the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) in all that which he commands. Believing and testifying to the truth of everything which he informs us of. This is because it may be the case that the legitimately responsible person may obey him...

Women in Islām – Separating Fact from Fiction

It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for the mighty Prophet, one of the great Messengers of the Supreme.

The Farewell Advice of Imām al-Shāfiʿī to Imām al-Muzanī from His Deathbed

Muḥammad ibn Idrīs al-Shāfiʿī (d. 204AH) (raḥimahullah) was from the most beneficial scholars of this Ummah who clung tenaciously to the Book of Allāh and the Sunnah of the Messenger Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), and authored a number of extremely beneficial treatises. In this khuṭbah, our respected elder and teacher, Abūl ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson (ḥafiẓahullāh) narrates the advice of Imām al-Shāfiʿī (raḥimahullāh) from his death bed to his most devout and dedicated student, Ismaʿīl ibn Yaḥyá al- Muzanī (raḥimahullāh) who would go on to live 60 years beyond this day of advice, becoming...

And Whoever Does Not Rule by What Allāh Revealed…

وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ ‎﴿٤٤﴾‏ “And whoever does not rule by what Allāh revealed, then these are the disbelievers.” [al-Maʾidah, 5:44] A question/condemnation posed regarding some of the Muslim rulers, implying that they are kuffār and that perhaps they should be removed is posed by one of the attendees, [Q]: ‘Is it allowed to remove (supposed) tyrants from the position of their governments when they apostate from Islām. For example, if you kill a Muslim, rule by something other than Allāh or assist the kuffār in killing the Muslims,...

Giving Zakāh for the Purpose of Marriage

A person’s need for marriage is a necessity. In some cases, a person’s need for marriage becomes as urgent as someone’s need for food and drink. Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (رحمه الله) [Q]: If a person is able to earn his basic provisions [food and shelter], and needs to get married but is not [financially] able to do so, is it permissible to give him zakāh? [A]: Yes, it is permissible for us to help him get married using zakāh funds, and to give him the mahr [dowry] in full. If it is said: How do we determine the permissibility of helping a poor man get married with zakāh funds...

The Excellence of Friday and Some Rulings for Jumuʿah Prayer

Allāh the Mighty and Majestic has said in His Magnificent Book: ۞ ذَٲلِكَ وَمَن يُعَظِّمۡ شَعَـٰٓٮِٕرَ ٱللَّهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِن تَقۡوَى ٱلۡقُلُوبِ ۞ ‘And whosoever honours the Symbols of Allāh, then it is truly from the piety of the hearts.’ [al-Ḥajj, 32:22] The believer upholds these symbols and considers them to be great and lofty, and is not ashamed of them in any way, making them uppermost through the speech of his tongue and through his actions, and thus attaining honour. The great scholar of tafsīr, and student of the Companions, Imām al-Qatāda (raḍiAllāhu ʿanhu) said: ‘Verily...

Explanation of the Ḥadīth: Whoever Allāh Wants Good For, He Gives Him Understanding of the Dīn

This Ḥadīth consists of a few words, as is characteristic of the Prophet’s (ﷺ) sayings, but it has much meaning and blessings. The Prophet (ﷺ) used few words in his statements so it would be easy for his Companions to memorise what he said. This Ḥadīth clarifies the blessing of Allāh upon some of His worshippers in that He blesses them with fiqh in the religion—and that is, they understand it as it was intended to be understood. The affair of understanding is greater than just memorizing. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Allah puts illumination in the face of the one who hears my statement and...

An Explanation of the Branches of Īmān

Our noble brother discusses the importance of īmān and its branches based on a very beautiful ḥadīth from the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ), collected by Bukhārī and Muslim. This ḥadīth regarding the branches of faith is narrated by Abū Hurayrah (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhu), in Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī, who said that the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) said, “Īmān is sixty odd branches.” In Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim, there is a slight differing in wording in where it is narrated that he (ﷺ) said, “Īmān is 70 odd branches…the highest of which is the statement ‘Lā ilāha illā Allāh,’ and the lowest...

Events on the Day of Judgement

Al-sirāt (the bridge) over the Hellfire is true. Linguistically, in the Arabic language, sirāt refers to a clear, straight path. In the dīn, it is a bridge that is established over Jahannam on the Day of Judgement. The believers will cross that bridge according to their actions. There are numerous narrations establishing the existence of this bridge. There are those who will pass over the bridge like the blinking of an eye, or like the wind, or like lightning, or like a camel walking, and there are some who will be crawling, being clawed by the metal hooks on the sides of the bridge....

Giving Daʿwah to Non-Muslims

This lecture revolves around the ḥadīth of the Ṣaḥābī, Jābir ibn Sulaym (raḍiAllāhu ʿanhu), and the account of his very first meeting with the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ). It is an important ḥadīth for people who wish to call to, and welcome a new Muslim to Islam. It is an example of how one should treat a new Muslim whose knowledge of the basics of Islām is deficient, outlining the obligations and methods of wisdom to be used in calling to Allāh’s religion; all of which can be gained and benefitted from in this ḥadīth of the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ). The ḥadīth is reported by Imām Abū Dāwūd...

Winter Is a Time for Contemplation and Increased Worship

Certainly, there is an opportunity for the believer to ponder and reflect upon Allāh’s Lordship during the changing of the seasons, for in their alternation and succession is a sign from the many signs of His Wisdom and Mercy. Similarly, the changing of the seasons is from the signs of Allāh’s Might and Power. From His Might and Power is that He alone has the ability to alternate the seasons and the duration of the day and night. Therefore, this time is an opportunity for the believer to contemplate over His Lordship. He, the Mighty and Majestic, said: يُقَلِّبُ اللَّهُ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ...

Fear Allāh in All Your Affairs

From the many beneficial points which our noble brother, Abū Ḥakīm, benefits us with in this important reminder are: The fitan that are facing the Muslims in the West and the land of the Arabs and encompass the Salafi, whether it is the fitnah of bidʿah and shirk, or shubuhāt and shahawāt. The person trying to walk the path of the ḥaqq has many obstacles of fitan before him. The Salaf used to say “give glad tidings, O Ahl al-Sunnah for you are the least of the people.” Those who are clearly Salafi without any taint in their manḥaj and who try to follow the scholars who seek...

Islām between Extremism & Neglect

In these times, we find those who claim to represent the ‘moderate Islamic viewpoint’, yet in truth, they oppose the Islamic texts and speak about the religion ignorantly, and from the most ignorant of their statements is, “We do not find this ruling in the Qurʾān; therefore, we are not obligated with it,” whilst it is established that the Islamic legislation is taken from the Qurʾān, the Prophetic tradition and the consensus of the Companions Shaykh Abū Khadījah
