The Muslims are the Most Just Among the Religions and Ahl al-Sunnah the Most Just Amongst the Muslims

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…

True Happiness Is Only Found in the Qurʾān and Sunnah

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. One should gain insight into those [means] through observation of worldwide occurrences, and experimentation, both carried out by oneself and by others, and from what has been conveyed about past and current generations. The most beneficial of all [these means] is to contemplate the Qurʾān. For it is, from every conceivable angle, the most sufficient and complete disposer of this need. As it expounds on and cl…

The Condition of the Salaf Before, During and After Ramaḍān

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? How should the Muslim prepare to achieve maximum benefit in these upcoming days and nights (of Ramaḍān)? From the knowledge-based preparation is that we are acquainted with the rulings of fasting, that which breaks our fast, the rulings regarding that which breaks the fast etc., but some of the people are ignorant of these matters. They do not understand the affair of fasting nor do they comprehend the compuls…

Praying in Clothing That May or May Not Have Impurities

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…

The Value of Giving Advice

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…

Statements of the Scholars Concerning the Shīʿah

The position of jurists concerning one who curses the Sahābah, believing that such an act is permissible, is that he has committed an act of disbelief. If he curses them but does not believe that cursing them is permissible, then he is guilty of immorality, and not disbelief. Shaykh Aḥmad al-Afghānī [1] Imām ash-Shāfiʿī On one occasion, ash-Shāfiʿī said concerning the Shiʿah, “I have not seen among the heretics a people more famous for falsehood than the Rāfiḍī Shiʿah.”1 On another occasion he said, “Narrate knowledge from everyone you meet except the Rāfiḍī Shiʿah, because they invent Ḥad…
