Abū ʿAbdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī (hafiẓahullāh) explains the importance of knowing the meaning of Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh. If we want to be upon the methodology of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa ṣallam) and enter into Paradise; if we want to be upon the Daʿwah Salafīyyah and not deviate from it; if we want to firmly hold onto the rope of Allāh; then we need to stick to the Sunnah of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-ṣallam) and understand what it means when we say, "Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh."Add a comment
Upon entering Islām, it is fundamental for one to become grounded in the founding principles of the Religion, in order to be free from innovation and misguidance.
The Prophet of Islām, Muḥammad (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “There are three things, whoever attains them will find the sweetness of faith: when Allāh and His Messenger are more beloved to him than everything else; when he loves another person, he loves him only for the sake of Allāh; and when he hates to return to disbelief [kufr] as he would hate to be thrown into the Fire” [Reported by al-Bukhārī (no. 15)].
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Suḥaymī says: "And indeed Allāh the, Blessed and the Exalted, created the Jinn and the Mankind with great Wisdom. Is it not for the purpose of worshipping Him, the Perfect and Exalted, and nothing else besides him? It is as Allāh, the Blessed and the Exalted, has said, 'And I did not create the Jinn and mankind, except to worship Me' [Sūrah al Dhāriyāt: 56] And the meaning of 'to worship Me' is 'to single Me out in worship'" [Mudhkiratun fil 'Aqeedah (p. 8)].
An instrumental question and answer session for Muslims, new and old. Shaykh Muḥammad al-ʿAnjarī establishes some of the usūl al-dīn as well as fielding commonly asked questions. A good reference point for introductory Islamic education. The lecture is a fine audio compliment to the superb question-and-answer essay: Take Your Creed from The Book and The Authenticated Sunnah by Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Jamīl Zaynū.Add a comment
