[Sūrah al-ʿImrān, 3:18] Present in this verse is a refutation of some of those who ascribe to the daʾwah, who says: The cal…

Giving Zakāh for the Purpose of Marriage

A person’s need for marriage is a necessity. In some cases, a person’s need for marriage becomes as urgent as someone’s need for food and drink. Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (رحمه الله) [Q]: If a person is able to earn his basic provisions [food and shelter], and needs to get married but is not [financially] able to do so, is it permissible to give him zakāh? [A]: Yes, it is permissible for us to help him get married using zakāh funds, and to give him the mahr [dowry] in full.

The Beginning of Prophethood

The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), prior to revelation, was known to possess the noblest of qualities, was from the most truthful, and had the highest standard of character. The following narration in Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī tells the story of the human weakness of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), and Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿāla) then made him infallible through Messengership, meaning he would not err after becoming a prophet, except that Allāh would send down revelation in order to clarify to the people. ʿĀʾishah (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhā) narrated: The commencement of…

The Means to Attaining a Tranquil Heart

Beneficial knowledge is the means to the removal of ignorance, and its attainment causes one to reflect upon his blessings, particularly in these times of fitan that have come from every angle, causing the heart of the believer to become very tight and constricted, and making the dunyá which is very wide restricted. This highly beneficial reminder addresses the reasons for which the heart becomes constricted and the way in which tranquillity may be attained alongside that which will give us firmness in the dīn of Allāh. Allāh has opened the hearts of the believers and shown them that…

Deliberately Inhaling Incense Breaks the Fast

Q: Is it permissible for the fasting person to smell perfume and ʿoūd [type of incense]? A: Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz: One should not inhale ʿoūd. There is no problem with [smelling] the other types of perfumes, except bukhūr [incense]. As for ʿoūd itself, it should not be inhaled because some of the people of knowledge say that if ʿoūd is inhaled it breaks one’s fast. This is due to some of its elements going to the brain [therefore affecting the fast]. It also actively spreads [throughout the body]. But smelling it unintentionally does not break one’s fast. Commentary of Ustādh Mūsá…

The Greatest Loss the Ummah Ever Faced

This lecture is from the sīrah series. From the beginning to 06:36 Ustādh Abū al-Abbās goes through some test answers. The lecture begins fully from 06.36. Indeed, Allāh has created this life as a test for people. He made this life a life of enjoyment and absolute pleasure. He created life and death in order to test which of us are best in deeds. He made some of the people oppressors and some of the people oppressed, trying and testing the oppressors and the oppressed, and He is watching and recording our actions and will call us back to account. Our life is full of loss; we struggle thr…
