Sticking to the Jamāʿah Can Make or Break Your Islām

Allāh mentions in Sūrah Āl ʿImrān (3:103), وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ النَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ ‎﴿١٠٣﴾ “And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allāh (Qurʾān and the Sunnah), and be not divided among yourselves.

Focus on the Youth: How to Find the Right Path

From the most important affairs that every single Muslim should be upon is the affair of al-istiqāmah (being steadfast upon the religion). This religion is something which can easily slip away if one does not cling to the obligations, and failure to do so results in opening the door to the whispers of the Shayṭān. Since this is a focus upon the youth and their entering into adulthood, then no doubt this is from the most important affairs for them also. There should be no doubt that Allāh (subḥānahū wa taʿālá) has created us to worship Him alone, and that the Shayṭān will seek to cause …

Ignorance and Its Cure

May Allāh have mercy upon the one who said ‘ignorance is a disease that kills, and its cure lies in two things in the same form of prescription, a text from the Book of Allāh or from the Sunnah, and the doctor of all of that is the scholar who fears Allāh.’ Knowledge of Allāh, knowledge of the ghayb (unseen), and knowledge of what pleases Allāh; that is what will benefit us. Ignorance is a chronic illness that kills, it kills the soul, it kills individuals, and it kills populations—for it is a chronic disease. The Messenger of Allāh said, ‘The cure for ignorance is to ask’. Knowledge is to…

The Importance of Sticking to the Jamāʿah

Who exactly are the Jamāʿah?1 Al-Jamāʿah refers to those individuals that are saved and protected due to their belief and methodology, from being cast into the fire by Allāh (subḥānahū wa-taʿālá). It is not a title applied to a group who believes that the mere title ‘al-Jamāʿah’ itself will save them, rather it is a term that is applied to a group who fulfill the criteria of the Sharīʿah of Allāh revealed upon the tongue of the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) and laid down within the Qurʾān and the Sunnah, and those principles must be fulfilled; once they are fulfilled t…

Sincere Advice for the New Students of Knowledge

I advise the students of knowledge1 in the beginning of their studies to memorise the book of Allāh or that which is easy [to be memorised] from it, and to memorise Kitāb al-Tawḥīd 2, Kashf al-Shubuhāt 3, Thalāthah al-Uṣūl 4 and al-ʿAqīdah al-Wāsiṭiyyah, 5 for they are concise in explaining the Salafī  ʿaqīdah and tawḥīd in its three categories. This is the ʿaqīdah that Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb called to. It is the ʿaqidah of the Salaf, and it is the ʿaqīdah of the country of Saudi [i.e. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia]. The reality of it is adhering to the Book and the Sunnah …

Sincere Advice for the New Students of Knowledge from the Eminent Shaykh: ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz

Some people call this the Wahhābī ʿaqīdah, and they consider it a new ʿaqīdah which opposes the Book and the Sunnah, [but] the affair is not like that. It is merely the ʿaqidah which the Salaf of the Ummah preceded upon, as mentioned previously. However, the enemies have labelled it with this label in order to deter from it and its people Imām ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdullāh ibn BāzShaykh Ibn Bāz (رحمه الله) said:1 I advise the students of knowledge in the beginning of their studies to memorise the book of Allāh or that which is easy [to be memorised] from it, and to memorize Kitāb al-Tawḥīd2…

A Brief Refutation of the False Principle of al-Muwāzanah

If it were that the Messenger (ﷺ) renounced [himself] from those who deceive the Muslims in transactions, then what about the one who deceives in the affair of Dīn?
