The Give and Take of a Good Relationship

Imām ʾAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Saʿdī (1376 AH) said: “The saying of the Prophet [ﷺ] ‘Let no believing man revile his wife [a believing woman]. If he finds himself hating one of her qualities, he will indeed find himself loving another one [of her attributes]’, offers two major benefits: The first is that it guides to the righteous way of dealing with one’s wife, close family, friends, workers, and whomsoever there exists any type of relationship or communication. It highlights that every person should fully and wholly prepare themselves for the fact that there must exist some type...

You Cannot Count the Blessings of Allāh

  O Servants of Allāh, listen to the statement of Allāh in the Qurʾān when He says,   وَإِن تَعُدُّوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ لَا تُحْصُوهَا ۗ ‎﴿٣٤﴾ “And if you count the Blessings of Allāh, never will you be able to count them”   [Sūrah Ibrahīm,14: 34] Indeed, were you to enumerate the blessings of Allāh, you would not be able to do so. Such are the great number of blessings that Allāh bestows upon his servants. Consider the narration which the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) mentioned in the Ḥadīth Qudsī where Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic says, “Each...

Explanation of Riyāḍ al-Ṣaliḥīn

There are 5 conditions for the acceptance of tawbah: 1. That you sincerely repent, seeking the face of Allah that He forgives you. One should not seek to show off, to impress the people, or to repel the harm from the leader, but solely to seek the face of Allāh and gain his forgiveness. 2. That you are regretful. When one is regretful it shows that one is truthful in his repentance. 3. That you stay away from that sin. This is the most important of the conditions, but it is the hardest. Question: if one sins should he tell the people? Shaykh al-ʿUthaymīn said that, if Allāh has blessed you...

The Islamic Solution to Crime

In a lecture that took place in Jamaica, our noble brother, Abū Ḥakīm, gives some concise advice regarding Islām’s solution to crime in Jamaica; however, this beautiful advice is one that applies to all countries, towns, and cities across the world. Indeed our Noble Messenger Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) was sent as a Mercy to mankind by Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿāla) in order to deliver them from the darkness of polytheism, debauchery, and immorality to the light of Tawḥīd, Sunnah, upright morals and beautiful character.

The Importance of Maintaining Family Ties

From the many beneficial points that our noble brother Abū Ḥakīm brings forth concerning the importance of keeping family ties are: The affair of giving thanks for the blessings bestowed from Allāh is from the reasons Allāh will increase those blessings. Giving thanks is from the reasons for having an increase in blessings from Allah and is from the affairs which will protect a person from Allāh’s punishment, so the affair of giving thanks is from the important characteristics of a Muslim. When Shayṭān disobeyed Allāh in prostrating to Ādam (ʿalayhi al-salām), he said to Allāh that he...

Keeping Good Companionship

Note: due to overheating, the recording was damaged; it may skip in parts. The salaf used to say that the soul is a thief. It takes the characteristics of those whom it accompanies. If it accompanies evil people, it will become evil, and if it accompanies the righteous, then it will become righteous. Just as Allāh commanded the Prophet (ﷺ) to keep companionship with the pious and righteous regardless of their wealth or status so too we are encouraged to keep companionship with the pious, regardless of their wealth or status. Allāh is only concerned with one’s ʿibādah; He is not concerned...

Any Fool Can Narrate but Only a Shepherd Guides a Flock

It is essential that the caller to this dīn is careful in all that he narrates especially those narrations which are from the prophetic traditions, ensuring that they are authentic; secondly, that he verifies news that has come to him, and does not hasten to add to it or narrate it. Imām al-Nawawī mentions that every person must safeguard his tongue from speaking, unless it is from that speech which has benefit, to be diligent in maintaining this, since there is no better substitute than safety. The caller to Allāh does not narrate all that he hears, even if the news which reaches him may...

Be Different from the Kuffār

During his summer visit in 1431H (2010), our beloved teacher, Abū al-ʿAbbās delivered an impactful khuṭbah on the Day of Jumuʿah. In this khuṭbah, he stressed the great importance of being different from the disbelievers. Our Lord, Allāh, subḥānahu wa taʿālá, has blessed the Muslims and raised them above all other nations. He has made us distinct from the disbelievers. Allāh says in Sūrah al-Munāfiqūn, the meaning of which is, “But honour, power, and glory (al-‘Izzah) belong to Allāh, and to His Messenger, and to the believers,” There is no honour nor glory with the disbelievers....

Allāh, the Majestic mentioned in his Noble Qurʾān,The believers are nothing else than brothers. So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allāh, that you may receive mercy.  (al-Ḥujurāt 49:10) “Brotherhood is more precious than anything on the earth…who said so Rabb al-ʿAlamīn…. And He has united their (i.e. believers’) hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allāh has united them. Certainly He is All-Mighty, All-Wise.  (Al-Anfāl 8:63) ..if we recognise that brotherhood is this precious, then we must be ready...
