Benefit: Again? I Can't Take All This Fitnah!!

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

  Ustādh Abū Ḥākīm touches on the reality that most fitan (trials) are not realised by the people until the tail-end of their exposure. What appears to be a sudden occurrence is actually something that was brewing for some time, something that the scholars may have been addressing behind close doors. Secondly, many fall into emotional judgements, "not again", "I can't take this anymore" or other analysis devoid of knowledge or patience. The speaker explains that fitnah (trials) will come, wave upon wave, and to seek a utopian existence where no trials occur is to misunderstand the principles of the Salafī methodology, the qawāʿid (principles) are not rooted.  Lastly, he clarifies the need for knowledge, patience and forbearance in times of fitnah, explaining the characteristics of the patient astute Salafī versus the mustʿajil (hasty) reckless people who contain the lethal combination of ignorance and arrogance, taking to their blogs and other ranting platforms, increasing themselves in ignorance and harming others.

The benefit is excerpted from the lecture entitled: Ḥidāyah (Guidance) and Its Fruits, from the 2018 Summer Seminar: The Methodology of the Salaf in Times of Fitnah.

Benefit: Answering the Doubt — Look Who Got "Dropped" Now

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

  Ustādh Abū Idrīs answers a doubt planted to imply harshness and lack of justice amongst the Salafis. The lecturer explains firstly that the true scales of justice in judging any person and his affairs is the Book and the Sunnah, not the desires of man. Secondly, it is well known in the Sunnah the ḥadīth explaining that a man will do the deeds of the people of paradise up until he is an arm's span from paradise only to turn away from it (and what is written for him overcomes him). To turn a blind eye to fitnah, to ignore the reality that people will go astray, is to trivialise the reality of this world, in this case, with a slanted agenda. The speaker reminds, if the companions did not feel safe from misguidance, then who are we? He concludes the benefit by incurring the listeners to make duʿāʾ and to strive upon the Salafī methodology, understanding that who is upon the truth and who is upon falsehood is a criterion built upon proofs, evidences and justice (not something to be mocked or trivialised).

Benefit: Defending The Daʿwah Requires Thick Skin - Be Rock Solid!!

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

  Ustādh Abū Ḥakīm sheds light on the path of those who stand up and defend the daʿwah against the enemies and opponents to the truth. He explains that they need thick skin, that they will face harm in the form of accusations, slanders including elaborate fabrications, all things that will test their mettle. He mentions that they need to be rocks, solid, able to continue upon the path of uprightness unbothered by attackers, like water off a ducks back.

The benefit is excerpted from the lecture entitled: Benefits from the Introduction to al-Ibānah al-Ṣughrá by Ustādh Abū Ḥakīm, from the 2018 Summer Seminar: The Methodology of the Salaf in Times of Fitnah.

Benefit: Everyone Today Is Considered a Scholar?!

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

  A brief discussion on the humility of the scholars, their fleeing from praise and grand titles. This example is then contrasted with those in the West who embrace titles, demand praise and seek recognition for everything they do, small or large. Importantly, Ustādh Abū Idrīs mentions the importance of clarity, those men who stand up in times of fitnah and are courageous, defending the truth, defending the scholars, not simply those who seek fame off the letters that follow their names.
