A Return to Excellence

   

How can the Muslims return to the excellence and virtue (fadl) which the Salaf al-Ṣāliḥ (Righteous Predecessors) had gained.

A Single Ummah

   

Knowledge-filled words from the scholars, past and present, regarding Muslim unity.

Allāh Is Over His Creation and His Throne in Particular

  Abū ʿUways

In a highly beneficial khuṭbah, Abū ʿUways (raḥimahullāh) taught and insightfully explained the correct Muslim belief of Allāh's ʿUlūʾ, Allāh's Highness, Allāh's Loftiness, saying, "Allāh is above everything in general, and above His Throne in particular."

Audio: Explanation of al-Taqwá

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

  Explanation of al-Taqwá

Allāh (subhānahu wa taʿālá) said, “O you who believe fear Allāh as he should be feared, and do not die except as Muslims." He has commanded us to have taqwá (fear) of him in numerous places in the Qurʾān. But how does one fear Allāh? And how does this benefit him in this life and in the hereafter? Shaykh ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī explains.

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.

Benefit: An Example of Sincerity in the Daʿwah of Shaykh al-Islām Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb

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

  Shaykh al-Islām Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb’s mentions in his letter to ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Suwaydī (one of the scholars of Iraq at that time): I convey to you that I am a follower and not an innovator. My creed and religion that I worship Allāh with is the methodology of Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah which the leaders of the Muslims were upon, like the four Imāms and those who follow in their way until the day of judgement.

Likewise, I have clarified to the people (the importance of having) sincerity towards the religion for the sake of Allāh, and I have forbade them from calling upon the dead or the living and associating them as partners with Allāh in acts of worship the likes of slaughtering (sacrificial animals), making a vow, having reliance and trust, prostrating and other than this from the rights of Allāh that no angel or messenger has any right to be associated in with Allāh. This is what all the messengers—from the first of them to the last of them—have been calling to, and this is what Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah are upon.

Benefit: As for You, O Poor Small Student Who Is Weak in Knowledge, Do Not Debate!

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

Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (ḥafiẓahullāh):

The statement of al-Imām Aḥmad about al-Qadar,

"Not to debate or argue with anyone, and not to learn argumentation."

There are from amongst the small students of knowledge, who go and debate with the Rāfiḍah, the Jahmīyyah, and the Muʿtazilah concerning the divine decree, debating with them in these affairs. Do not subject yourself to doubts (for indeed they lead you to being) astray. However, the skillful scholar, who knows that he will be able to benefit with such debates, either aiding the Sunnah or subduing the people of falsehood, or even maybe Allāh will guide the one whom the scholar is debating. If he is seeking the truth, then the scholar is to clarify the issue to him.

As for you, the poor small student who is weak in knowledge, do not debate! I emphasise this point to the students of knowledge that you should not debate concerning the likes of these very serious innovations. As for the normal affairs that you know, and they are in the limits of your abilities, and you fully understand them, then there is no problem for you to discuss them, as long as the intention is not to debate and gain victory, but rather the goal is for clarification.1

Benefit: Following the Guidance - Shaykh ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī

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

In his famous poem, al-Ḥāʾiyyah, the great scholar ibn Abī Dāwūd (d. AH 316) began with the following: Hold tight to the rope of Allāh and to the guidance. In this benefit, Shakyh ʿAbd Allāh al-Bukhārī, hafiẓahullāh, of Madīnah explains these opening lines by explaining a verse from the Book of Allāh. Our Shaykh touches on very important points of ʿaqīdah and manhaj. Listen to this short clip and take heed; may Allāh guide you to His Straight Path. May Allāh reward our brothers from Salafi Publications for translating this lecture at the Five Pillars Dawrah Series. For more on the al-Ḥāʾiyyah poem, check out the al-Ḥāʾiyyah Poem class audio from our brother Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson. Also, be sure to listen to the other lectures by our scholars from the Five Pillars Dawrah Series.

Benefit: Ibn al-Qayyim's Defence of the Followers of the Sunnah

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

In defence of the followers of the Sunnah, al-Imām Ibn al-Qayyim wrote the following lines of poetry, refuting those who reject the Qurʾān and Sunnah for what their forefathers were upon.

قالوا له خالفت أقوال الشيو... خ ولم يبالوا الخلف للفرقان
خالفت أقوال الشيوخ فأنتم... خالفتم من جاء بالقرآن
خالفتم قول الرسول وإنما... خالفت من جراه قول فلان

يا حبذا ذاك الخلاف فإنه... عين الوفاق لطاعة الرحمن 
أو ما علمت بأن أعداء الرسو... ل عليه عابوا الخلف بالبهتان 
لشيوخهم ولما عليه قد مضى... أسلافهم في سالف الأزمان 
ما العيب إلا في خلاف النص لا... رأي الرجال وفكرة الأذهان 
أنتم تعيبونا بهذا وهو من... توفيقنا والفضل للمنان 
فليهنكم خلف النصوص ويهننا... خلف الشيوخ أيستوي الخلفان 
والله ما تسوى عقول جميع أهـ... ـل الأرض نصا صح ذا تبيان 
حتى نقدمها عليه معرضـ... ـين مؤولين محرّفي القرآن 
والله إن النص فيما بيننا... لأجل من آراء كل فلان

This is a brief excerpt from the 'Aqīdah series from 2007 with our brother and instructor Mūsá Richardson.

Benefit: Is Abandoning al-Halabī Abandoning the Manhaj and Legacy of al-Albānī?

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

An excerpt from the recent series 'Points of Explanation from Sharḥ al-Sunnah of Imām al-Barbahaaree' narrated by Dāwūd Adīb during his visit to Toronto, Canada. The supporters of al-Ḥalabī claim that abandoning ʿAlī Ḥasan al-Ḥalabī is to abandon the late Shaykh and Scholar, Imām Muḥammad Naasird-Dīn al-Albānī. With no outlets to respond to the concise refutations against al-Ḥalabī, they turn to rhetoric like this to appeal to the hearts of Ahl al-Sunnah. Is this claim true? Is this abandoning Imām al-Albānī's work, his manhaj, his efforts? Is Halabee today a reflection of al-Albaane? They also say that Shaykh Rabīʿ was too quick or too severe in his dealings with al-Ḥalabī but how did Shaykh Rabīʿ handle al-Ḥalabī and those like him during the last few decades? Listen and understand in shāʾ Allāh.

Benefit: Only the Truth Is Respected

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) said: “Those who say, ‘Respect all of the different views and opinions’ are wrong. Only the truth is respected.”

Benefit: The Creed of Ahl al-Sunnah Was Known Well Before the Emergence of the Four Imāms

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

Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned:

The creed of Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah is an ancient creed which was known well before Allāh created Abū Hanīfah, Mālik, al-Shāfiʿī and Aḥmad. It was the creed of the Companions who received it from their Prophet. Therefore, whoever opposes this creed is considered an innovator with Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah.
