Maintaining the Straight Path
An introductory advice concerning sticking to the correct manhaj. Shaykh Muḥammad explains some of the core foundations of the Islamic methodology.
A tele-link with Shaykh Muḥammad al-ʿAnjarī from the Apr. '07 Seminar 'Islām in our Times' in Toronto, Canada. A good lecture for the person who is new to the Sunnah or new to issues of Manhaj and would like to understand some basic principles. From the benefits discussed:
- Understanding Islām based upon the Qurʾān, Sunnah and the understanding of the Salaf al-Ṣāliḥ
- Answering the claim: we follow the Qurʾān, the Sunnah and ʿIjmāʾ (what's agreed upon)
- Answering the claim: we need to form a new jamāʿah (group) or organised movement in order to establish an Islamic state
- The fitnah (problem) of the common Muslims (or common speakers) making takfīr (declaring Muslims to be apostates)The importance of the Muslim youth clinging to the major scholars of Islām towards understanding their dīn and taking their positions
