The Sunnah Is Like the Ark of Nūh

Imām Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn

A telelink with the community of Salafī Publications which took place in the year 2000, one of the last telelinks to the West with the noble scholar, Shaykh Muḥammad Ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (raḥimahullāh), based on the popular statements of the Imāms of the Salaf, ‘The Sunnah is like the Ark of Nūh’. The phone call was coordinated by our brother ʿAbdū-Ilah Lahmamī and translation narrated by Abū Khadījah.

In this lecture is a beautiful piece of advice in which the Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn reminds the Muslimīn that they need to unite upon one manhaj (methodology) and to hold on tightly to the rope of Allāh just as the companions of the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) were united upon one manhaj and their belief was one.

The Shaykh emphasizes the importance of accepting the truth and likewise rejecting falsehood no matter who it comes from. The Shaykh then goes on to mention that one should adorn himself/herself with the best of manners and have excellent character and most importantly have taqwá of Allāh (subḥānahu wa taʿālá).

The Shaykh delivers a hard-hitting reminder to the Salafīyyīn with the theme stemming from one of the popular statements of the Imāms of the Salaf, ‘The Sunnah is like the Ark of Nūh’. Whomsoever gets aboard it shall be saved and whomsoever remains shall drown.’
