Narrated by Abū Ruqayyah Tamīm ibn Aws al-Dārī (may Allāh be pleased with him) that the Prophet [may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him] said: ‘This religion is naṣīḥah [sincerely desiring that which is good for another].

The Muslims are the most just in terms of their sharīʿah [i.e. following the divine legislation]. Unlike the Jews, they never rejected the sharīʿah that abrogated their own for the purpose of holding on to abrogated laws. Unlike the Christians, they never changed any portion of their actionable laws, or created new laws for themselves for which Allāh never granted them permission. They never fell into the radical adulation [that extended to worship] of their prophets and righteous like the Christians, nor did they completely discard the rights of [the pious] like the Jews. They never descr…

Imām Ibn Al-Qayyim (d. 751 AH) said: “There are two matters that are among the reasons for true happiness: One of them is to have detailed knowledge of all the means of good and evil.

Question: What was the condition of the salaf al-ṣāliḥ (may Allāh have mercy upon them) in greeting this great month (Ramaḍān)? What was their methodology, and how was their guidance?

They do not understand the affair of fasting nor do they comprehend the compuls…

Al-ʿAllāmah Muḥammad ibn Ṣālih al-Uthaymīn [d. 1421 AH] said [concerning doubts about clothing that may have najāsah]: The correct opinion is that an individual should seek out the truth with regards to it. If it seems most probable to him that a piece of clothing is pure, then he should pray in it. For Allāh does not burden a soul more than it can bear, neither has He made it obligatory on anyone that he should pray a prayer twice [one in each piece of clothing he has doubts concerning]. If you say: Is it not possible that even with this inspection [of the clothing] that he could hypothe…

Al-Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Rajab narrates from Al-Ḥasan [al-Baṣrī] who said: “Some of the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) said: ‘By the One in whose Hand my soul lies, if you so will I shall surely swear by Allāh for you: Truly among Allāh’s most beloved servants are the ones who instil the love of Allāh within [the hearts] of His servants, and in turn they make the servants of Allāh beloved to Allāh. They go forth in this world spreading naṣīḥah [sincerely desiring that which is good for one another]. Farqad al-Sabakhī said: I’ve read in a few writings: ‘Beloved to Allāh is the leader who com…
