Who Deserves The Salams?

Do not precede them with the salams… Imām Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah Chapter: His ﷺ Guidance In Greeting The Ahl Al Kitāb1 It is authenticated from him ﷺ: “Do not precede them with the salams, and if you meet them in a street, “2. However, it is said that he ﷺ said this in a specific matter, regarding travelling to Bani Quraydhah, he ﷺ said, “Do not precede them with the Salāms.” So what about the regular person from Ahl al-Dhimma? Or is it specific to whomsoever is in a state such as theirs? Verily there occurs in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim that, “Do not precede the Jews...

Distinguishing Signs of Haddādiyyah (Extremists)

So if Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maʿribī can clarify to us with clear evidences whom he is referring to as Haddādiyyah, since he has described them with these attributes, then we will spare no effort in finding them guilty of Haddādiyyah and we will punish them by writing about them and warning against them and we will place them alongside the Hadādiyyīn without any consideration. Al-ʿAllāmah Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī View/Download | 4 pages   Translated by Maaz Qureshi

Tawḥīd al-Ḥākimiyyah Is an Innovation

I say that I believe in the ḥākimiyyah of Allāh alone and I believe in the comprehensiveness of this ḥākimiyyah and that is obligatory upon the individual and the groups and the rulers and the callers to submit to it. An Introduction to the Fitnah Al-Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Ḥajar said: “Al-Mu’allib said: ‘Desire for leadership is a cause for people fighting each other to the point that they shed blood and make wealth and private parts lawful, and therefore great corruption occurs in the land. Then the reason for regret is that he may be killed, deposed or die and then regret having entered...

Uncovering the Hidden Ḥizbī, Abū Muslimah ʿAbdullāh Tawfīq, Imām of Masjid Ahl al-Sunnah

Sallām ibn Mutī’ said, ‘A man said to Ayyūb al-Sakhtiyānī, ‘O Abā Bakr, ʿAmr ibn ʿUbayd has turned back from his opinion!!’ He said, ‘He has not turned back.’ He said, ‘Indeed, O Abā Bakr, he has turned back!’ Ayyūb said, ‘He has not turned back – three times – he has not turned back. Have you not heard his ﷺ saying, ‘They shoot out from the Religion just as the arrow shoots through the prey, then they do not return to it until the arrow returns to the bow string. Dār al-Ḥadīth wa-al-Athar

A Clarification of Doubts Regarding Innovation

His saying, ‘and beware of the newly invented matters, and every bidʿah is a misguidance’ contains a warning to the ummah from following the newly invented innovations, and he stressed this by saying, ‘and every innovation is a misguidance’. And the meaning of bidʿah is everything that is newly invented that has no basis in the Sharīʿah that would prove it. Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān

The Conclusive Ruling upon Jamāʿat al-Tablīgh

So in this book, he collected and explained the reality of this group from its own books and from trustworthy witnesses from its own members who attained special positions in their program and their followers, and refuted them. Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān [Q]: The Jamāʿat al-Tablīgh says, ‘We wish to traverse the methodology of Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jamāʿah.’  However, some of them may have errors.  So they say, ‘How can you make a judgment upon us and warn against us?’ [A]: Those who traveled with the Jamāʿat al-Tablīgh and studied them have written against them.  So...

The True Meaning of Fiqh al-Wāqiʿ

The meaning of that is the fiqh of the Religion by knowing the rulings of the Sharīʿah. This is what is required, and this is what is obligatory upon the Muslims to give attention to and know. Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān [Q]: ‘I need clarification, what is the intended meaning behind ‘Fiqh-al-Wāqiʿ’, (understanding the current state of affairs) because this term is often used.  I wish to know what it means linguistically, not in the Sharīʿah sense.’ [A]: “The required an necessary fiqh (understanding) is the fiqh of the Book and the Sunnah,...

Profound Words Concerning Groups and Parties

The innovation is more severe because innovation is worse than disobedience, and innovation is more beloved to Shayṭān than disobedience because the disobedient one may repent. Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān [Q]: We hear about what are called Islamic Jamaa’aat in this age in various parts of the world.  So what is the basis of this term?  Is it permissible to go along with then and assist them if they do not have an innovation? [A]: The Messenger ﷺ informed and explained to how we must interact.  He did not leave anything that brings his Ummah closer to...

Soundness of Manhaj

So the soundness of manhaj – or lack thereof – determines a person’s entry into Paradise or the Fire. [Q]: Is entry into Paradise or the Fire dependent upon the soundness of manhaj (methodology)?2 [A]: Yes, if the manhaj is sound, then the person will be from amongst the people of Paradise; since he will be upon the manhaj of the Messenger ﷺ and manhaj of the Salaf al-Ṣāliḥ. He will be from amongst the people of Paradise by the permission of Allāh.  If he traverses a misguided methodology, then he will be an innovator in the Fire.”3 So the soundness of manhaj – or lack thereof...

Questions and Answers Concerning Muslim Unity

Splitting up (tafarruq) is not from the Religion, because the Religion commands us with unity, and to be one jamāʿah (community), and one Ummah upon the ʿaqīdah of tawḥīd, and upon following the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ. Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān

Our Daʿwah

Our daʿwah and our ʿaqīdah is more beloved to us than our own selves, our wealth and our offspring.  So we are not prepared to part with it for gold, nor silver.  We say this so that no one may have hope in buying out our daʿwah, nor should he think that it is possible for him to purchase it from us for dīnār or dirḥam. Since the politicians already know this about us, so they have despaired of buying it from us with granted positions or wealth. Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī

Exhortations and Admonitions

So if one has faith – and he offers the obligatory duties, and abandons the prohibitions – then he will not enter the Fire, as has been frequently reported in authentic ḥadīths from the Prophet ﷺ regarding this principle. The Path of the Believers Imām Ibn Abī Jamrah said: Indeed, the scholars have said regarding the statement of Allāh: “…And follows other than the Path of the Believers, We will turn him to what he has turned to…” [Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 3:115] that what is meant by it is the Companions, and the first generation, because they themselves were the first ones...

A Study of the Ḥadīth, ‘May Allāh Brighten the Man’

May Allāh brighten the man who heard a ḥadīth from us, memorized it and then conveys it just as he heard it, for perhaps the one who carries fiqh is not a faqīh (one who understands), and perhaps he passes it on with the fiqh to one who is better than him in understanding. Al-ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-Muḥsin al-ʿAbbād

When Were Ḥadīth First Written?

Bukhārī related from Abī Hurayrah that he said, ‘None from amongst the Companions of the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) had more ḥadīths than me, except for ʿAbdullāh ibn ʿUmar. Verily he used to write, and I did not write.’ Ṣaḥiḥ al-Bukhārī Al Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Kathīr said:1 Indeed, it is mentioned in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim from Abī Saʿīd al-Khudrī in marfūʿ’2 form, ‘Whoever writes from me something other than the Qurʾān, then let him erase it.’ Ibnus al-Ṣalāh said, ‘And from what has been narrated to us about it is that it was disliked by: ʿUmar, and Ibn...

The Invalidators of Islām

So the scholars (raḥimahumullāh) have mentioned in judgement upon the apostate that the Muslim apostates from his Religion due to many types of invalidators that make his blood and his wealth permissible and by that he leaves Islām Al-ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdullāh ibn Bāz Know – O Muslim brother – that Allāh has obligated upon all of the servants to enter into Islām and to hold fast to it and to warn against whatever opposes it. So Allāh sent His Prophet Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) to call to that, and He, the Mighty and Majestic, informed that whoever followed...

Prerequisites to Understanding the Correct Creed

So make yourself patient upon the Sunnah, and stop where the people stopped, and say what they said, and refrain from what they refrained from. Travel upon the path of your righteous Salaf, for verily sufficient for you is what was sufficient for them. A Censure of the Intellect Imām Abū al-Muḍaffar al-Samʿānī said: “Know that the methodology of the people of the Sunnah is that the intellect does not obligate something upon a person, nor does it raise something from him. It does not determine something to be permissible or impermissible for him, nor good or bad. If the person who heard...
