Our respected brother delivers an important reminder regarding the temporary passing of this dunyá, and how as believers we should look towards what we put forth from actions and deeds, alongside the importance of possessing the correct ʿaqīdah and belief, in order to attain eternal bliss in the hereafter. Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿāla) says,  وَإِن جَاهَدَاكَ عَلَىٰ أَن تُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلَا تُطِعْهُمَا ۖ وَصَاحِبْهُمَا فِي الدُّنْيَا مَعْرُوفًا ۖ وَاتَّبِعْ سَبِيلَ مَنْ أَنَابَ إِلَيَّ ۚ ثُمَّ إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ And follo…

From the beneficial points made by our noble teacher: Whomever Allāh wishes to guide, Allāh will open his heart to accept the dīn of Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿāla) and whomsever Allāh misguides, he causes his heart to become constricted. The hearts of the innovators and the people of desires are in a state of constant constrainment. As for the people of sunnah and tawḥīd, their hearts are content with what Allāh has given them; they are pleased with Allāh as their Lord, Islam as their dīn and Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) as their Messenger. The people of sunnah and tawḥīd a…

From the beneficial points made by our noble teacher in this lecture: Ibn al-Qayyim was a great Imām and student of Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymīyyah (raḥimahullāh) and he authored many beneficial works. He was born in the year 691 AH and died 751 AH leaving behind many very beneficial works, including the work which we will be drawing upon today; Al-Wābil al-Sayyib. This book serves as a reminder for the believer in softening the hearts through knowledge of Allāh and evaluating your relationship with Him. Indeed, as the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said, ‘The heart is b…

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy On the evening of Saturday, November 12th, 2017 (Safar, 23rd, 1439), our noble brother Shākir al-Afghānī had the pleasure of an audience with Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná.

Questioner: Shaykh, our brothers are seeking advice regarding some of the Canadian youth who…

A benefit from al-Usūl al-Thalāthah lesson (2017/10/11) at TROID: According to the strongest position, “Iqraʾ” (read) was the first piece of revelation. The first verses revealed to the prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) were: اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ الْأَكْرَمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ عَلَّمَ الْإِنسَانَ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ  Read! In the name of your Lord who has created (all that exists). He has created man from a clot. Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous. Who has taught (the writing) by the pen. He has taught man that whic…

[Q:] What is your opinion about al-Barbahārī’s book Sharḥ al-Sunnah and the one who defames it? [A:]1 Al-Barbahārī — who died 329 years after the Hijrah — is Abū Muḥammad al-Ḥasan ibn ‘Alī ibn Khalaf, and he was the shaykh of the Ḥanbalī scholars in Iraq in his time. He was a muḥaddith [i.e. a scholar of Ḥadīth], a ḥāfiẓ [i.e. a great memoriser], and a faqīh [i.e. a scholar of fiqh], and Sharḥ al-Sunnah — in which he established the creed of Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah in issues such as Allāh’s Names and Attributes and the [various] issues of īmān — is from his books. Only a person of des…

وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ ‎﴿٤٤﴾‏ “And whoever does not rule by what Allāh revealed, then these are the disbelievers.” [al-Maʾidah, 5:44] A question/condemnation posed regarding some of the Muslim rulers, implying that they are kuffār and that perhaps they should be removed is posed by one of the attendees, [Q]: ‘Is it allowed to remove (supposed) tyrants from the position of their governments when they apostate from Islām. For example, if you kill a Muslim, rule by something other than Allāh or assist the kuffār in killing the Muslims, are t…

Narrated ʿAʾīshah (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhā): Whenever Allāh’s Apostle intended to go on a journey, he used to draw lots amongst his wives, and Allāh’s Apostle used to take with him the one on whom the lot fell. He drew lots amongst us during one of the Ghazwat which he fought. The lot fell on me and so I proceeded with Allāh’s Apostle after Allāh’s order of veiling (the women) had been revealed. I was carried (on the back of a camel) in my howdaj and carried down while still in it (when we came to a halt). So we went on until Allāh’s Apostle had finished from that Ghazwa of his and had returned…
