A Talk to Children: Who Is Allāh and Why Do We Worship Him?

  Abū Khadījah ʿAbd al-Waḥid

A pivotal lecture for parents, youngsters, teachers and students, over-viewing the purpose of creation and the path of true Islām. A unique and important lecture given to an audience of young Muslims. Abū Khadījah ʿAbd al Waḥid begins by explaining the blessing of Islām upon the Muslim, the bounties of Allāh's mercy, and why we owe Allāh our thanks. Later, many examples are brought to exemplify the disaster of shirk and the punishment that awaits in the hereafter, as well as a brief description of the Paradise. We recommend this lecture to all parents and teachers, one of the few lectures that can be played to younger Muslims and understood well in shāʾ Allāh.

Advice to the Muslimāt

  Abū Khadījah ʿAbd al-Wāḥid

A reminder to the Muslimāt (Muslim women) concerning their honourable role in society. The role of the Muslim woman is a role of guidance and nurturing, raising children upon the Sunnah, producing a generation of young men and women who know their religion and practise it. An important speech in light of the image of oppression and ‘backwardness’ cast by the Western media.

And Whoever Does Not Rule by What Allāh Revealed...

  Abū Khadījah ʿAbd al-Wāḥid

"There will be leaders who will not be led by my guidance and who will not adopt my ways? There will be among them men who will have the hearts of devils in the bodies of human beings. I said: What should I do Messenger of Allāh, if I (happen) to live in that time? He replied: You will listen to the ameer and carry out his orders; even if your back is flogged and your wealth is snatched, you should listen and obey."

Any Fool Can Narrate but Only a Shepherd Guides a Flock

  Abū Khadījah ʿAbd al-Wāḥid

In a time where the speakers have become many and the knowledgeable few, our noble brother Abū Khadījah gives an extremely important reminder regarding the importance of preserving one’s tongue from attacking the honour of his brother, and the honour of the scholars and the people of knowledge.

Audio: The Danger of Those Who Sport the Garments of Ahl Sunnah Only to Lead the Salafīs Astray

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

  The Danger of Those Who Sport the Garments of Ahl Sunnah Only to Lead the Salafīs Astray

A lecture from the 2008 Toronto leg of the Holding on to Islām seminar. The one who destroys your house from the inside is worse and more dangerous than the one who tries to destroy your house from the outside; the same is true for the people of bidʿah who claim to be Salafī, who quote from some of the Salafī scholars etc., yet their aim is to destroy our ʿaqīḍah and our manhaj, leading us into the Fire. How should the Salafīs deal with these people? This lecture incorporates the works of Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madhkhālī, and other Salafī scholars of today. Ustadh Abū Khadījah also takes examples from the lives of the Ṣaḥābah and the scholars of the past.  


Audio: The Trickery and Deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah

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

  The Trickery & Deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah

Abū Khadījah gives a brilliant in-depth lecture regarding the trickery and deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah, and an admonition against the  likes of misguided individuals such as Usāmah al-Qūsī, Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Muḥammad al-Maghrāwī, Yāsir Qaḍhī and Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī.



Benefit: Ahl al-Sunnah Are Not Harmed by Those Who Oppose Them!!

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

An important benefit from the khuṭbah at TROID (Masjid al-Furqān) entitled: The Evils of Plotting and Disunity. The noble speaker, Abū Khadījah states:

“They were once with us, in this masjid (TROID), next to us, praying with us, that (you would feel) we are united, (upon) the haqq, we will spread the daʿwah together, you pray with him, year in, year out, then a time comes, that that same individual disappears from your presence, you don’t see him again, then you realise that he is plotting against the same people that he was praying next to, foot to foot, heel to heel, fighting against them, warning against them, gathering the people against them…to harm who? The people you’ve been commanded to unite with!!! but الحمد لله ‘they are not harmed by those who oppose them or differ with them or abandon them!!’”

“We should know what unites us and what divides us…don’t allow individuals to come into your ranks that they were once with you then they divided from you and then they try to recruit you to divide the ranks of the people of Sunnah…do not allow that!”

“The haqq is one, the people (of haqq) are united, they are the ones who connect you to the scholars…they love the Sunnah…they will not compromise the Sunnah…do not sell your religion (short).”

“Do not open your hearts to argumentation, it leads a person to change his religion.”

“Do not deceive yourselves for you will only harm yourself.”

“May Allāh preserve and protect our communities, from the people of deviation, from the people of bidʿah, from those individuals who come upon our ranks to cause confusion and splitting amongst our ranks, so much so that brothers who used to love each other for the sake of Allāh now hate each other, do not be swayed, do not be like feathers in the breeze, know the truth, stick to the truth and do not compromise the truth!!!


Benefit: Increase in Your Love of Allāh

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

We have been ordered in the Book and the Sunnah to follow the way of the Companions, may Allāh be pleased with them. From the greatest attributes of the Companions was the softness of their hearts and the tremendous love of Allāh, subḥānahu wa ta'aala. How many narrations mention the weeping of the Companions after hearing verses from the Book of Allāh? Where are we in this regard? Listen to this strong admonition from Abū Khadījah and take heed of this important aspect of the religion. May Allāh increase you in guidance.


Benefit: ISIS has NOT established Khilāfah

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

 Abū Khadījah discusses the fallacy of ISIS, and al-Baghdadi's so-called "Khilāfah". Their claim to leadership is false, rather they are a band of butcherous buffoons feigning leadership of the Muslims from isolated desert areas. 


Benefit: Islamic Movies and Plays - Make-Believe or Mockery?

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

An advice regarding "Islamic" movies and plays such as The Message. Can a non-Muslim ever come close to accurately portraying one of the Ṣaḥābah (may Allāh be pleased with them)? Is it ok for a Muslim to portray himself as a mushrik and pretend to worship idols for the sake of a play?

Our beloved brother Abū Khadījah covers the realities of these issues and presents some guidelines for the Muslim regarding them.


Benefit: She Contemplates Avoiding Marriage Fearing Disobedience!

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

In response to a two-sided question posed regarding sisters who avoid marriage out of the fear that they would disobey their husbands and go to hell, and why women make up the majority of inhabitants in the Hellfire. Our beloved brother, Abū Khadījah, offers some advice based on the authentic Sunnah.


Benefit: Take Heed Khārijīs (Dogs of the Hell Fire), Before the Hour Is Established!

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

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) has prophesied the coming of the many groups.  Some, as he has foretold, will not be from the drinkers of the ḥawḍ', some he gave the title, 'fire worshippers of this nation',1 a specific group was titled, "Dogs of the Hell-Fire" (the Khawārij), etc.. 

These "dogs" are the same individuals that killed many of the companions, including ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib, radhiyallahu 'ʿʿanhu.  In more recent times, there has been much media attention placed on these individuals. Days before the Fort Hūd shooting, this website spread the refutations against the misguided Anwar al-Awlaki.  The corrupted incident took place on November 5th, and Anwar was quick to praise such devilish actions.

See the entire forum thread here (includes the audio recording with Shaykh ʿUbayd).

Our dear brother Mūsá Richardson sheds some light2 on this issue of kharūj, the call to rebel against the Muslim leaders, and brings forth statements from the earlier scholars on the impermissibility of this act. The second item to be viewed below  is by Abū Khadījah.3 The well-respected brother brings some stories from how the salaf, our predecessors, dealt with these individuals.

*Note: It should be known that it is not permissible for us to kill the Khawārij ourselves.  The noble scholar, Shaykh Rabīʿ Ibn Hādī  was asked: Is it permissible for us to kill the Khawārij if we know them and know their wickedness?  He responded by saying: No, if they rebel against the Imām. ʿAlī (raḍī Allāhu ʿʿʿanhu), did not kill them up until they rebelled. The Muslim rulers, even if they are oppressive, (they) do not kill them (khawārij) up until they draw their swords and rebel (against them), that is if they unsheathe their swords and rebel and kill. If not, then there will be chaos, each one will go and kill the other claiming he is khārijī.

1  Abū Dāwūd Ḥadīth #4691

 عن ابن عمر عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال القدرية مجوس هذه الأمة إن مرضوا فلا تعودوهم وإن ماتوا فلا تشهدوهم

"The Qadariyyah (those who deny the qadr of Allāh -  claim mankind creates his own actions as he goes) are the fire-worshipers of this nation.  If they become sick, then do not visit them, and if they die, then do no witness their pray (their funeral prayer)."

Rebelling Against the Sinful Ruler and Overthrowing Him - What did the Imāms of the Past Say? - Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson

The Worst of the Khawārij are Those who Incite the People to Fight the Muslim Rulership!! - Abū Khadījah



Benefit: The Broadcast Yourself Generation - Advice for Bloggers and Social Media Enthusiasts

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

A brief advice concerning the nature of today's internet landscape, one in which participation is encouraged by current information funnelling technologies such as Twitter, YouTube etc. The Salafī student of knowledge is one who listens, reads and learns. However, the internet today is driven by platforms which encourage participation and the constant flow of information (we will discuss the reasons for this at another juncture). In this regard, one can feel left out if he/she is not tweeting, youtubing, blogging etc. Is blogging and spreading information about Islām for everyone? Does it inhibit time spent studying? Abū Khadījah offers some advice in this regard.


Benefit: The Disease of Ḥizbiyyah and Its Negative Effect upon the Soul

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

The Disease of Ḥizbiyyah and Its Negative Effect Upon the Soul - Masjid Hopping?

A short impromptu advice from Abū Khadījah in Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) about the negative effects of ḥizbiyyah, how it misguides and causes the heart to fall ill (with some sad examples). An importance advice in light of the culture of masjid-hopping which has appeared these days, wherein a person may "buffet-dine" on different ideologies.


Boycotting the People of Bidʿah and Warning against Them

  Abū Khadījah

Examples from the Ṣahābah and the Salaf on how they dealt with Ahl al-Bidʿah. A sharp contrast to the melting-pot approach of al-Maghrib and like organisations who call to unite and sign allegiances between various groups of deviation.
