Benefit: Angels Do Not Enter a House in Which There Is a Dog or an Image

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

The Prophet, may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace, stated: «Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or an image.»1

Ibn Taymīyyah (d. AH 728) commented:   

If dogs and pictures prevent the created angels from entering a home, how then would the knowledge and love of Allāh, the sweetness of His remembrance, and comfort with His nearness, penetrate a heart already fraught with bestial desires and their images?!2

Benefit: Who Is Jibrāʾīl?

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

Q: Who is Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel)?

Shaykh Fawzān: Do you not know who Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel) is? Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel) is the best of the angels, the trustworthy one who was entrusted by Allāh with the revelation.

نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوحُ الْأَمِينُ
Which the trustworthy Ruḥ [Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel)] has brought down
[Sūrah al-Shuʿarāʾ, 26:193]

This means that the Qurʾān was sent down by the trustworthy spirit, who is Jibrāʾīl (Gabriel) peace be upon him.

عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ
Upon your heart (O Muḥammad)
[Sūrah al-Shuʿarāʾ, 26:194]

Meaning upon the heart of the Messenger—peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him—so he is the trustworthy spirit—peace be upon him—and the chief of angels.
