Benefit: Repelling the Shayṭān

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

(1) Say: "I seek refuge with (Allāh) the Lord of mankind, (2) The King of mankind (3) The Ilah (God) of mankind, (4) From the evil of the whisperer (devil who whispers evil in the hearts of men) who withdraws (from his whispering in one's heart after one remembers Allāh). (5) Who whispers in the breasts of mankind. (6) Of jinn and men." [Sūrah-Naas, 114:6]

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Rahmân as-Sa’dî (rahîmahullâh) comments:

This Sūrah comprises seeking refuge (Isti'aadah) with the Lord of mankind, the King of mankind and the Ilāh of mankind from Shayṭān, who is the source and essence of every evil and mischief. The one from whose fitnah (trials) and wickedness is that he whispers into the breasts of men, beautifies for them evil misdeeds, displays it to them in an appealing image, and entices their desires towards performing it. He makes good deeds appear repugnant to them, and causes them to lag behind from (performing khayr), and presents it to them in a guise other than its own. He is always in this state of whispering and withdrawing, meaning: he withdraws when the servant remembers his Lord, and seeks His help (towards repelling the devil). Thus, it is obligatory upon the servant and all of mankind to seek aid and refuge with His Rubūbiyyah, and hold fast to it. The whole of creation falls under (the monarchy of) His Lordship and Sovereignty; he has seized every creature by the forelock. Mankind must also seek aid and refuge with His 'Ulūhiyyah (Divinity), for it was for His worship alone, that they were created. This worship, however, is not perfected except and unless they repel the evil of their enemy, who desires to cut them off (from worshiping Allāh alone) and obstruct their way towards it, and who desires to make them his followers, that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire. Whispering could come from jinn or from man, hence Allāh says: “…Of jinn and men.”

‎وهذه السورة مشتملة على الاستعاذة برب الناس ومالكهم وإلههم، من الشيطان الذي هو أصل الشرور كلها ومادَّتها، الذي من فتنته وشره، أنه يوسوس في صدور الناس، فيحسن (لهم) الشر، ويريهم إياه في صورة حسنة، وينشط إرادتهم لفعله، ويقبح لهم الخير ويثبطهم عنه، ويريهم إياه في صورة غير صورته، وهو دائماً بهذه الحال يوسوس ويخنس أي: يتأخر إذا ذكر العبد ربه واستعان به على دفعه. فينبغي له أن [يستعين و] يستعيذ ويعتصم بربوبية الله للناس كلهم. وأن الخلق كلهم داخلون تحت الربوبية والملك، فكل دابة هو آخذ بناصيتها. وبألوهيته التي خلقهم لأجلها، فلا تتم لهم إلا بدفع شر عدوهم، الذي يريد أن يقتطعهم عنها ويحول بينهم وبينها، ويريد أن يجعلهم من حزبه ليكونوا من أصحاب السعير، والوسواس كما يكون من الجن يكون من الإنس، ولهذا قال: "من الجنة والاس

Benefit: Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Ibn Bāz Concerning Major Sinners and Their Places in the Hereafter

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

 Ustādh Mūsá Richardson translates a fatwá on the issue of major sinners and their places in the hereafter as explained by our Shaykh, ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (raḥimahullāh). In his fatwá collection vol 6. p 391, he was asked the following:

[Q]: Allāh says in the Qurʾān that He does not forgive that partners are associated in worship alongside him, but he forgives anything less than that (Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:116). He also says He is the most forgiving for whomever repents and believes and does righteous deed (Sūrah Ṭā Hā, 20:82). Is there a clash between these two verses? And what is the meaning of his statement "everything less than shirk (polytheism) for whomever he pleases" in the first ayāh.

Benefit: Shaʿbān Is the Month of the Reciters

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

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razzāq al-ʿAbbād (حفظه الله) tweeted the following on 8th May, 2016: “Make a habit of reciting the Qurʾān and pondering upon it in Shaʿbān, for the soul is upon that which it has contracted habitually. The salaf used to say when the month of Shaʿbān entered: ‘This is the month of the reciters.’”

Translated by: Musa Shaleem Mohammed

Benefit: Swearing by the Muṣḥaf

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) said: “Swearing by the muṣḥaf—as some ignorant people do—is impermissible, since the muṣḥaf is not used for this purpose.”

لا يجوز استعمال المصحف في الحلف كما يفعله بعض الناس من الحلف على المصحف هذا شيءٌ لا يجوز، لأن المصحف لا يستعمل للحلف عليه وإنما هذا من فعل الجُهال.

Benefit: Teach and Learn the Qurʾān Correctly

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Āl al-Shaykh (حفظه الله) stated:

The teacher must recite then the student must follow suit, since the Qurʾān is learnt. [Similarly,] the Qurʾān was recited to the Prophet (ﷺ) then he (ﷺ) emulated its recitation, as the Mighty and Majestic said:

فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ
“So when We have recited it [i.e. when Jibrāʾīl have recited the Qurʾān to you, Muḥammad (ﷺ)], then emulate its recitation” [Sūrah al-Qiyāmah, 75:18].

This is how the Qurʾān is taught. As for correcting the student until he recites accurately [i.e. without hearing the teacher’s recitation], then this is incorrect. The teacher must recite then the student must follow suit.

Benefit: The Best Type of Worship

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

 Shaykh Muḥammad Amān ibn ʿAlī al-Jāmī (رحمه الله) said: “Reciting the Qurʾān is the best type of worship, even if its meaning is incomprehensible to you.”

Benefit: The Ruling on Giving a Copy of the Muṣḥaf to Non-Muslims

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

 Ustādh Mūsá Richardson translates the following question which was posed to the honourable Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdullāh ibn Bāz (raḥimahullāh) and can be found in vol. 6, pg. 469 of his Majmūʿ al-Fatāwá:

[Q]: If a Christian asks me for a muṣḥaf should I give it to him or not?

Benefit: The Ruling on Reading the Qurʾān from the Mus‘haf during Tarāwīḥ

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The Question: Is it correct to read the Qurʾān from the Mus-haf during Taraaweeh? 

The Answer: For the one who is incapable of reading from memory, then there is nothing wrong if he reads from the Mus-haf during the Taraaweeh prayer. This is because he will read the entire Qurʾān from its beginning to its end. So, if he isn’t a memorizer of the Qurʾān, then he may read from the Mus-haf. Some of the Salaf (righteous predecessors) used to do this. 

Member of the Permanent Committee for Fataawa,  al-ʿAllāmah Shaykh Ṣāliḥ bin Fawzān al-Fawzān, hafiẓahullāh

The Question: What about reciting the Qurʾān from the Mus-haf (during prayer) Noble Shaykh?  

The Answer: There is no objection in that - that which is correct is that there is no objection in that. So if he needed to recite from the Mus-haf because he hasn’t memorized the Qurʾān, then there is nothing wrong if he reads from the Mus-haf. It has been established that ‘Aa’ishah’s (raḍīAllāhu ʿanhā) slave, Dhakwān, used to lead her in prayer (in Ramaḍān), reading from the Mus-haf as mentioned by Bukhārī (raḥimahullāh) in a mu’allaq report. 

Also, the original principle is that there is nothing wrong with this, and whoever forbids this, then he should bring forth evidence. The original principle has permitted recitation from memory and recitation from the Mus-haf. This is the original principle, and whoever says, “It is forbidden [to read] from the Mus-haf," then he should bring forth evidence, and the original principle is that there is no evidence. So he has forbidden the original principle, and it is the permissibility of reciting the Qurʾān from the Mus-haf. The mother of the believers has implemented this, and she is from amongst the most knowledgeable of people (raḍīAllāhu ʿanhā). 

Al-'Allāmah Shaykh ibn Bāz: http://www.binbaz.org.sa/mat/20173

The noble Shaykh Muḥammad bin Ṣāliḥ al-‘Uthaymīn (raḥimahullāh) was asked: There is a mosque whose congregation is few (in number) and there isn’t anyone from (the congregation) who is capable of reciting from memory. So, can the one who wants to lead the congregation, read with the Mus-haf by looking at it during the prayer – the night prayer in Ramaḍān, for example? 

The noble Shaykh responded by saying:Naʿam (Yes). If the Imām hasn’t memorized anything from the Qurʾān, then this action is considered permissible for him (to do) – that he reads with the Mus-haf and there is no prohibition upon him regarding that, because this action is (implemented) for the sake of finishing the prayer, and the action (implemented) to finish the prayer does not harm, and Allāh is the granter of success.

Benefit: Virtue of Sūrah al-Ikhlāṣ

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

On the authority of Abū Dardāʾ (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhu), the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said:

“Will any of you fail to recite one-third of the Qurʾān nightly?” It was then said: “How can [we] recite one-third of the Qurʾān? The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) replied: “Say: He is Allāh, (the) One.” [i.e. Sūrah al-Ikhlāṣ] is equivalent to one-third of the Qurʾān [Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim: 811].

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razāq al-Badr mentions: Allāh is the greatest! What a tremendous virtue! Verily, there are 361,180 letters in the Qurʾān. It is said, there are 323,015 letters, and it is also said there are 340,740 letters in the Qurʾān, as mentioned by ibn Kathīr in the introduction of his tafsīr. If it were whosoever recites a letter from the letters of the Qurʾān is rewarded with ten rewards as mentioned in the narration of ibn Masʿūd, then how many rewards would one attain if one recited the whole Qurʾān? [Keeping in mind] that reciting Sūrah al-Ikhlāṣ—being one line—three times is equivalent to that (of the whole Qurʾān). Allāh has made its reward great! This virtue does not mean that reciting (Sūrah al-Ikhlāṣ) three times will suffice you from reading the rest of the Qurʿān; rather, the salaf despised repeating its recitation more than once when reading (for khatm al-Qurʾān).
