A Beautiful Advice Concerning Marrying and Divorcing Easily

  Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādi al-Wādiʿī

[Q]: There is an evil habit that has spread amongst the practicing brothers (Salafīyyīn); it is that one of them will marry a woman and after a few short days a quarrel will take place between the spouses and the news will spread (to the community). Then, there are some brothers who encourage him to divorce her, until the point that there is a sister who has been divorced fourteen times, and this is widespread and apparent, and there is no one there (America) from the people of knowledge for them to return to, so what do you advise us with?

Advice for the Confused and Bewildered with Regard to the Foolish Ideas of Suhayb Ḥasan and His Like

  al-ʿAllāmah Abū ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (d. AH 1421)

A just refutation against the one known as Suhayb Ḥasan. The Noble Shaykh exposes the obscene ignorance of this one whose insanity has caused him to consider himself a contemporary of Shaykh Rabīʿ al-Madkhalī. He has also spoken in favour of the existence of multiple parties, thus opposing the fundamental principle of unity practiced by Ahl al-Sunnah. Perhaps his greatest contention with the Salafī manhaj lies in his claim that the science of al-Jarḥ wa-al-Taʿdīl no longer exists in our time (thus eliminating the praise and disparagement of men and specifying it to the authentication of narrations only).

Benefit: Calling the People of the Book to Islām Using the Bible?

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

Today, the abundance of Islamic callers is overwhelming. The Internet has enhanced the claim of many digitized Youtube callers, claiming to call to the truth. From these callers are those who invite the disbelievers to Islām using verses from the Bible, such as Zakir Naik and Shabir Ally. This methodology in da'wah often opens up the door to interfaith dialogues. Is this methodology of calling to Allāh correct? Are there any consequences to this way? Alhamdulillāh, our Shaykh, Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī, briefly discussed this issue in Questions from the Salafīs of Toronto to the Imām of Yemen. So listen to this short benefit, may Allāh increase you knowledge.

Benefit: Do Not Deceive the People in the Name of the Sunnah!

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

Do not deceive the people in the name of the Sunnah! The Sunnah has become like a robe; if they wish they wear it, and if they wish they take it off.

We do not say that the Sunnah is our reign or that Salafiyyah is our reign. Salafiyyah is to return to that which the Salaf were upon. Was Imām al-Bukhārī a ḥizbī (partisan)? Was Imām Aḥmad a ḥizbī? Was ʿAbdullāh ibn Mubārak a ḥizbī? Was Abū Hurayrah a ḥizbī?

They were not ḥizbīs. Rather, they use to call to the book of Allāh and the Sunnah of His Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam).

Benefit: How Do You Determine the Truth?

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

Shaykh Muqbil al-Wādʿīmentioned: If your scale [in determining the truth] is based upon the majority, then the majority is dispraised. If your scale is based upon eloquence and fluency in speech, then, Allāh has described the hypocrites with persuasive tongues. Allāh mentions:

وَإِن يَقُولُوا تَسْمَعْ لِقَوْلِهِمْ
And when they speak, you listen to their words[Surah al-Munāfiqūn, 63:4]

That which must be considered [in determining the truth] is recognizing the attributes of the people of truth. They are those who call the people to the book of Allāh and the Sunnah of His Messenger (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam). They seek neither reward nor gratitude from the people (for this).

Benefit: How to Deal with Innovations at the Janāzah

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

 [Q]: If the followers of a Janāzah were practicing an innovation, should I follow the Janāzah or leave it?

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādʿī: As long as the deceased is a Muslim, the Messenger of Allāh (sallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) mentioned: “The Muslim has five rights upon a Muslim” in another narration, six rights, and from these rights is that you follow his Janāzah. So it is required that you follow the Janāzah, and if you are able to renounce the innovation, then you renounce it according to your capability, [even if it is only] renouncing it with your heart. Do not cooperate with them in their innovation, for it is an innovation. We hope that Allāh (subḥānahu wa-taʿāla) grants us understanding and grants our people understanding so that they leave off these innovations.

The Messenger of Allāh (sallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) mentioned: “There is no deceased Muslim who is prayed upon by a group of people who do not associate anything in worship with Allāh except that Allāh accepts their intercession for him [i.e. the deceased]”. So we should strive to increase the numbers of those praying [at the Janāzah]. Pray and follow the Janāzah according to the Sunnah. Allāh’s aid is sought.

Benefit: The Value of One Book

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

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (رحمه الله) said: “I advise the student of knowledge to keenly acquire books, even if he has to sell his car or his imāmah [i.e. his turban] to purchase a book [because] one book is equivalent to this world!”

Benefit: The Woman’s Voice Is a Source of Fitnah

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

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (رحمه الله) said: “It is necessary that the woman speaks only when it is required of her because her voice may be a source of fitnah for a man, and Allāh’s aid is sought. We do not say, ‘The woman’s voice is a part of her ‘awrah’; however, it is a source of fitnah.”

Benefit: What Exactly Is Harshness?

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

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (رحمه الله) said: “Harshness is to forbid people from something Allāh himself has not forbidden them from, or it is to mandate something Allāh himself has not mandated upon them. This is harshness. As for adhering to the religion, then this is not considered harshness.”

Benefit: Where Is the Best Place for a Woman to Seek Knowledge?

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

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (رحمه الله) was asked: “Is the woman who never leaves her house, not even to go to the masjid, better than the woman who seeks knowledge and goes to the masjid?”

The shaykh (رحمه الله) stated: “A woman should remain in her house and seek knowledge since the Prophet (ﷺ) said: ‘Do not prevent the female slaves of Allāh from going to the masājid of Allāh; however, their houses are better for them.’”
