What is the soundness of the statement 
concerning the hellfire coming to an end? 

Shaykh Fawzaan

Q: What is the soundness of the statement which is attributed to Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy upon him) concerning the hellfire vanishing (i.e coming to an end)?

A: You are not in need of (busying yourself with) this issue, and you will not be asked about it on the day of judgement. It is not from the affairs of your religion, (rather) it is from those inquisitive issues. Leave it. It is attributed to Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy upon him) and Allah knows best, however it is not an issue from which there is a religious benefit.

From the signs of hypocrisy...

From the signs of hypocrisy...



Shaykh Ibn Baaz رحمه الله: “From the signs of hypocrisy is to mention Allah very little, to be lazy when it is time to get for prayer and to offer the prayer very quickly. It is rare the you find someone who loves music and by have these qualities in them".

Majmu al Fatawa Vol.3 Pg.415

The most diseased form of Gheeba


Backbiting other in order to make people not follow that person in the hope people will follow you instead



The most diseased form of Gheeba
Ibn Jawzi رحمه الله  said, “The most diseased form of backbiting is when people induce others to stay away from some people, while having others look towards them.

They combine the acts of dispraising the one in mention and earning praise for themselves. Due to their ignorance they are oblivious to fact that they are falling into two sins: backbiting and showing-off.

For example a person is mentioned within their circle and they say: “Praise to Allah we have no concern to visit the Sultan and strive for the vanities of this world,” or they say about him, “We seek refuge in Allah from deficient modesty, We ask Allah to save us from being immodest.”

Though these kinds of words they instruct people to see the shortcomings of someone else (while trying to establish they are free from that shortcoming so people should follow them and not the person they backbit).”


Ref: Minhajul Qasideen by Ibn Jawzi vol.2 pg.680.




Sa’eed ibn’ul Musayyib: 

Whenever Shaytan loses hope from deviating someone, he approaches them from the women’s side [i.e. tries to make him do zina]! 
  
Siyar a’lam an-Nubala (v. 4, p. 237)



"From the people are those whose jealousy carries them to backbiting, so he combines two ugly [things]: backbiting and jealousy".

Relation of Husband and Wife

Relation of Husband and Wife

Ibn al Qayyim said:
فإن صادف ذلك وجها حسنا وخلقا دمثا وعشقا وافرا ورغبة تامة واحتسابا للثواب فذلك اللذة التي لا يعادلها شيء ولا سيما إذا وافقت كمالها فإنها لا تكمل حتى يأخذ كل جزء من البدن بقسطه من اللذة فتلتذ العين بالنظر إلى المحبوب والأذن بسماع كلامه والأنف بشم رائحته والفم بتقبيله واليد بلمسه وتعتكف كل جارحة على ما تطلبه من لذتها وتقابله من المحبوب فإن فقد من ذلك شيء لم تزل النفس متطلعة إليه متقاضية له فلا تسكن كل السكون ولذلك تسمى المرأة سكنا لسكون النفس إلينا قال الله تعالى {وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجاً لِتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا}
If it (sex) is done wholeheartedly, in a friendly and loving manner, with full desire and with the intention of reward only than one can get complete pleasure which no other thing can give. It can only be attained by doing it in a best way. The sign of it is, after doing it every part of the body feels calm, eyes feel cool by seeing the beloved (wife), and the ears feels happiness by listening to her soft and beautiful voice, Through her perfume and by touching her it feels good, and by kissing her the taste of mouth changes, likewise every part of the body feels good..

Because women (wives) are the cause of happiness of the heart that is why they are also called the reason to the happiness of the soul. Allah says “And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them” [30:21]

CAREFULLY CHOOSING WORDS [IN DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES] WHEN 
ADDRESSING OTHERS – AN EXCELLENT 

EXAMPLE FROM PROPHET IBRAAHEEM (ALAYHIS-SALAAM)

Allaah (The Most High) said:


إِذۡ قَالَ لِأَبِيهِ يَـٰٓأَبَتِ لِمَ تَعۡبُدُ مَا لَا يَسۡمَعُ وَلَا يُبۡصِرُ وَلَا يُغۡنِى عَنكَ شَيۡـًٔ۬ا (٤٢) يَـٰٓأَبَتِ إِنِّى قَدۡ جَآءَنِى مِنَ ٱلۡعِلۡمِ مَا لَمۡ يَأۡتِكَ

When he said to his father: “O my father! Why do you worship that which hears not, sees not and cannot avail you in anything? “O my father! Verily! There has come to me of knowledge that which came not unto you. [19:42-43]

Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) said: Look at this speech that is attractive to the hearts. He [Ibraaheen (alayhis-salaam) did not say to his father, ‘’Indeed, you are a Jaahil (an ignorant person) lest his father is turned away due to rough speech, rather [Allaah said that Ibraaheem said]:

فَٱتَّبِعۡنِىٓ أَهۡدِكَ صِرَٲطً۬ا سَوِيًّ۬ا (٤٣) يَـٰٓأَبَتِ لَا تَعۡبُدِ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ‌ۖ إِنَّ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ كَانَ لِلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ عَصِيًّ۬ا (٤٤) يَـٰٓأَبَتِ إِنِّىٓ أَخَافُ أَن يَمَسَّكَ عَذَابٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ فَتَكُونَ لِلشَّيۡطَـٰنِ وَلِيًّ۬ا

So follow me. I will guide you to a Straight Path. “O my father! Worship not Shaitan (Satan). Verily! Shaitan (Satan) has been a rebel against the Most Beneficent (Allah). “O my father! Verily! I fear lest a torment from the Most Beneficent (Allah) overtake you, so that you become a companion of Shaitan(Satan) (in the Hell-fire).” [19:43-45] [Ref 1]

A Benefit from Imaam Ash-Shanqeetee (rahimahullaah) regarding harshness and softness in their appropriate places; he said:

It is idiocy and an offence to (apply) harshness in a place where leniency is to be (applied), and it is weakness and spiritlessness to apply leniency in a place where harshness is to be applied.  If it is said: Apply leniency, say: Leniency should be in its place, for the leniency of a young man in other than its place is ignorance.”  [Ref 2]

The Opinion Of The Majority Is Not Consensus: Shaykh Salih Al Fawzan


The Opinion Of The Majority Is Not
Consensus: Shaykh Salih Al Fawzan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Q: Is the opinion of the majority (of scholars) deemed ijmaa (consensus)?

A: No, the majorities’ opinion is not considered as consensus, it is only deemed as the majorities’ opinion and that’s it. For this reason the four Imams (whenever they all agreed on a matter) it was not said about them they had consensus on the contrary it would be said that they agreed. The four imams had agreement in such and such an issue however it is not said a consensus (among all scholars). An agreement (among the four) is not a consensus (among all the scholars).

Speaking whilst doing wudhoo?


Speaking whilst doing wudhoo?



Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked about speaking whilst doing wudoo’: is it makrooh?

He (may Allah have mercy on him) replied: Speaking whilst doing wudoo’ is not makrooh, but in fact it distracts the individual, because when the one who is doing wudoo’ washes his face, he should bear in mind that he is obeying the command of Allah, and when he washes his arms, wipes his head and washes his feet, he should bear this intention in mind. But if someone speaks to him, and he speaks to that person, this focus is disrupted and he may also get confused about his wudoo’, and he may be faced with waswaas as a result of that. So it is preferable for him not to speak until he has finished his wudoo’. But if he does speak, there is no blame on him for that.

Fataawa Noor ‘ala ad-Darb by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen.

سئل الشيخ ابن عثيمين عن : الكلام أثناء الوضوء ، هل هو مكروه ؟

فأجاب رحمه الله : " الكلام في أثناء الوضوء ليس بمكروه ، لكن في الحقيقة أنه يشغل المتوضئ ؛ لأن المتوضئ ينبغي له عند غسل وجهه أن يستحضر أنه يمتثل أمر الله ، وعند غسل يديه ومسح رأسه وغسل رجليه ، يستحضر هذه النية ، فإذا كلمه أحد وتكلم معه ، انقطع هذا الاستحضار وربما يشوش عليه أيضاً ، وربما يحدث له الوسواس بسببه ، فالأولى ألا يتكلم حتى ينتهي من الوضوء ، لكن لو تكلم ، فلا شيء عليه “

Stick with your true brothers

Umar ibn al-Khattāb رضي الله عنه said:

“Stick with your true brothers. You can live in comfort with them, as they are a delight in times of ease, and you can lean on them in times of hardship. Assume the best about your brother until he comes with something that should alarm you from him. Avoid your enemy, and beware of befriending anyone but the trustworthy, and there is no trust for the one who doesn’t fear Allāh. Do not befriend the corrupt, as he will teach you his corruption, and do not reveal your secrets to him, and only consult those who fear Allāh, the Exalted.”

Carelessness of some Women concerning Travelling by Airplane without a Mahram



Carelessness of some Women concerning

 Travelling by Airplane without a Mahram

Shaykh Uthaymeen states:
There is a very regrettable thing with regard to this matter which is the carelessness of some women concerning travelling by airplane without a Mahram.
They are very negligent in this matter: One finds women travelling by airplane alone, and their justification for doing this is that they say that her Mahram escorted her in the airport from which the airplane took off and the other Mahram will meet her in the airport at which the airplane lands, and that in the airplane she is safe.
This justification is weak in reality, because the Mahram who accompanies her does not admit her onto the airplane, he only admits her to the departure lounge.
It may also be that the airplane is delayed in taking off and so this woman remains lost, or the airplane might take off and then be unable to land at the intended airport due to some reason or another, and so it lands at some other place, else and so this woman will be lost. Or, the airplane might land at the intended airport, but the Mahram who is supposed to meet her does not arrive due to one reason or another, such as illness, sleep or a car accident which prevents him from getting there, or something else.
Even if all of these things did not happen, and the airplane landed at the correct time of arrival and the Mahram who was supposed to meet her was present, there might be some man sitting next to her on the airplane who does not fear Allah, the Most High and does not respect the worshippers of Allah, and he might be attracted to her and she to him, which might lead to Fitnah (temptation, trial) and unlawful deeds, as is well known.
So, it is incumbent upon a woman to fear Allah, the Almighty, the All-Powerful and not to travel except with a Mahram. It is also incumbent upon women's male guardians whom Allah has made protectors and maintainers of women to fear Allah, the Almighty, the Ail-Powerful, and to avoid being negligent to those they are Mahrim for, and losing their zeal and their religion, for a person is responsible for his family.

The Ruling of Combining the Walīmah for Marriage with the Walīmah of the Aqīqah*

Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azīz Ibn Bāz

*Question:* Some of the people do the Walīmah for marriage along with the Walīmah for the Aqīqah. Is this action correct or should each be done separately?

*Answer:* There is no harm in that. If one combines the two Walīmahs then there is no harm.

Abu Hanifah And Al-Irjaa: 

Shaykh Rabee Ibn Hadee

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Q: Is it correct that which is attributed to Abu Hanifah that he was Murji’ee?
This article has been taken from maktabasalafiya. blogspot. com/2016/07/abu-hanifah-and-al-irjaa-shaykh-rabee.html
A: This is correct and no one denies this. Abu Hanifah fell into irjaa and no one denies it, neither Hanifi nor Sunni, no one denies this. Ahlus Sunnah sternly censured him due to this and for other reasons. Therefore it is not allowed for a Hanifi or anyone else to follow the mistakes any individual no matter who it may be. Not Abu Hanifah, not Malik, and not Shaafi’ee, however I do not know of errors in creed with theses individuals except Abu Hanifah, as he fell into saying the statement, “the Quran is created” but eventually repented from that as is firmly established (and or affirmed) by the scholars. However his (mistake with regards to) irjaa, him repenting from such was never affirmed, nor has anyone claimed such. No one from the Hanifis or other than them to the best of my knowledge.

The Categories of Women who Approach their Husbands for Intimacy

The Categories of Women who Approach their Husbands for Intimacy

Shaykh Jamāl Al-Hārithī حفظه الله

Women, in most cases--if not all, except a few--approach their husbands as it relates to the affair of the bed (intimacy) and the reason, in my view, places them in one of three categories:

1. The First Group: She approaches her husband in the bed out of obedience to Allāh as an act of worship; seeking a reward from Him, Majestic be He, for pleasing her husband by fulfillment of his sexual desire, (helping him to) lower his gaze, and hoping for a righteous child.

2. The Second Category: She approaches her husband in the bed hoping for pleasure, and nothing else.

3. The Third Category: She approaches her husband in bed in order to prevent him from looking at other women purely out of jealousy.

No doubt the first has brought together (the benefit) and comprehended the affair.


h ومعترفين؛ بأن النساء غالباً والأغلب، إن لم أقل كلُهنّ ـ إلا الشاذة منهنّ ـ؛ يتقربن إلى أزواجهن في مسألة الفراش، وهنّ في سبب ذلك التقرب على ثلاثة طوائف في نظري ورأيي:


الطائفة الأولى:


تتقرب لزوجها في الفراش؛ طاعةً لله تعالى ـ تعبداً ـ، محتسبة الأجر منه جل جلاله، بإرضاء زوجها بقضاء وطره، وغض بصره، ورجاء ولدٍ صالح.


الطائفة الثانية:


تتقرب لزوجها في الفراش؛ رغبة في الاستمتاع لا غير.


الطائفة الثالثة:


تتقرب لزوجها في الفراش؛ كي تحجبه من أن ينظر إلى غيرها، غَيْرَةً منها عليه فقط.


ولاشك أن الأُولى جمعت فأوعت.

The Categories of Men in Fulfilment of the Rights of the Wife

The Categories of Men in Fulfilment of the Rights of the Wife

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Sālih Al-'Uthaymīn رحمه الله

From the people there is he who restricts his wife and does not fulfill her rights. He does not spend upon her. If he does give her he shorts her. At times he gives her in a state of disgruntlement. If she says: 'Give me 10 Riyāl so that I may purchase something I am in need of,' he says: 'Insha-Allāh, at 'Asr,' then when 'Asr comes he says: 'Tomorrow.' Like this he continues to put her off. This is not permissible and is Harām for him. If the wife is in this state, then if she is able she may take from his wealth without his knowledge (just to fulfill her need). If she is not able then she may accept Zakat in order to stave off her need.

From the people there is he who does that which is obligatory and does not fall short in his obligations, however, he does not increase upon that. 

From the people there is he who does that which is obligatory and he increases upon that (does additional things which are not obligatory upon him), and he is the best of the categories (of husbands).

These husbands which we have mentioned, from them there is he who is oppressive to his own soul, he who follows the middle course, and he who is foremost in doing good; by the permission of Allāh.

و لأحمد بسند جيد , عن ابن مسعود - رضي الله عنه – مرفوعا: إن من شرار الناس من تدركهم الساعة و هم أحياء , و الذين يتخذون القبور مساجد

و رواه أبو حاتم في صحيحه

Narrado por Ahmad (رحمه الله) con una cadena (*de narración) buena, bajo la autoridad de Ibn Mas’ud (radi Allahu ‘anhu) remontándose hasta el Profeta   صلى الله عليه وسلم,

Verdaderamente, de los peores de la humanidad son aquellos sobre quienes será establecida la Hora y estén vivos, y aquellos quienes han tomado las tumbas como lugares de adoración (masaajid).
También narrado por Abu Haatim (رحمه الله) en su Sahih.

This Hadeeth is reported on the authority of Ibn Mas’ood (رضي الله عنه) reachingback to the Prophet ﷺ,

Verily from the worst of mankind are those whom the Hour will be established upon and they are alive, and those whom have taken the graves as places of worship (masaajid).
This is because the Hour will only be established upon the worst of creation. As far as the believers their souls will be taken by a pleasant wind prior to this (i.e. the establishment of the Hour).

Those who take the graves as places of worship are from the worst of mankind because they are a means and cause for the people falling into shirk (polytheism), innovation, and erroneous acts. This is because once the people view such a thing as correct they will naturally conclude and say, “Since they have built (a place of worship over this grave, the occupant of it) must then be supplicated to and called on in times of peril.

However, there is no problem if the grave is in close proximity to the cemetery. This is because the walkway in that case will separate between the two, and this is superior (to masaajid being on top of graves).

This is correct just as we have previously mentioned (when speaking about) extremism, that results in the one whom they are extreme about being taken as an object of worship instead of or along with Allah. Due to this the people exaggerated the status of some of the righteous. They thus, took them as objects of worship instead of or along with Allah. Examples of this are like the graves of Al Hassan (radiAllahu ‘anhu), Al Hussain (radi Allahu ‘anhu), Faatimah (radi Allahu ‘anha) and other than them. This nation has likewise exaggerated the status of the Messenger ﷺ and consequently fallen into (shirk by) worshipping him (by supplicating to him and the like) and seeking his aid in times of peril instead of or along with Allah; this (also happened) in the times of antiquity when the people of Nuh ﷺ exaggerated the status of the righteous until they eventually worshipped them (which is polytheism) as we have already mentioned.

The ruling regarding taking the pills that prevent menses in order to perform fasting

Question:

What is the ruling regarding taking the pills that prevent menses during Ramadan in order to fast the whole month, without resorting to making up fasting?

Answer:

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessing be upon whom Allah sent as a mercy to the Worlds, upon his Family, his Companions and his Brothers till the Day of Resurrection.
The considered opinion is that the woman keeps her nature, without using the pills that delay menses in order to perform fasting. She is rewarded for her worship by not fasting and not doing other acts of worship, due to menses, which are predestined by Allah عزَّ وجلَّ. She will not miss the reward by Allah’s Will. She will worship Allah عزَّ وجلَّ later by making up fasting, knowing that Dhikr (remembrance of Allah), which is one of the best actions, is allowed for her during menses, as the Prophet صلَّى الله عليه وسلَّم was used to remember Allah عزَّ وجلَّ in all cases(1). In case she used the pills and fasted, her fasting, then, is correct and she does not have to make it up.

The perfect knowledge belongs to Allah سبحانه وتعالى. Our last prayer is all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessing be upon our Prophet, his Family, his Companions and his Brothers till the Day of Resurrection.

Whomsoever intends to leave off sinning in Ramadan alone


Whomsoever intends to leave off sinning

 in Ramadan alone

ﻗﺎﻝ ﺷﻴﺦ ﺍﻹﺳﻼﻡ ﺍﺑﻦ ﺗﻴﻤﻴﺔ رحمه الله :
(ﻣﻦ ﻳﻌﺰﻡُ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺗﺮﻙ ﺍﻟﻤﻌﺎﺻﻲ ﻓﻲ ﺭﻣﻀﺎﻥ ﺩﻭﻥ ﻏﻴﺮﻩ ﻓﻠﻴﺲ ﻫﺬﺍ ﺑﺘﺎﺋﺐ ﻣﻄﻠﻘﺎً،ﻭﻟﻜﻨﻪ ﺗﺎﺭﻙٌ ﻟﻠﻔﻌﻞ ﻓﻲ ﺷﻬﺮ ﺭﻣﻀﺎﻥ).
( ﺍﻟﻔﺘﺎﻭﻯ١٠ / ٧٤٣ ).

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him, said:

"Whomsoever intends to leave off sinning in Ramadan alone, then this is not true repentance at all, but rather this is (just) leaving it (sinning) in the month of Ramadan (alone)."

(Fatawa 10/743).

The Jaahil (ignorant) Who Speaks Without Knowledge


The Jaahil (ignorant) Who 

Speaks Without Knowledge

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said,

“The greatest calamity is from an ignorant person
who has compound ignorance,
who argues with you without knowledge,
speaks without knowledge,
speaks to the common folk without knowledge,
speaks to the scholars without knowledge and in an argumentative manner, and
when you discuss something with him, he is the most ignorant of Allaah’s slaves.”

Mentioning Allah While Using The Bathroom: Shaykh Salih Alish-Shaykh


Mentioning Allah While Using The Bathroom:

 Shaykh Salih Alish-Shaykh

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This is hated, so it’s befitting for the Muslims to avoid it. Ibn Umar stated that a man passed by Allah’s Messenger -sallahu alayhi wa salaam- while he was urinating and conveyed the salaams, however the Messenger -sallahu alayhi wa salaam- did not respond. That was because returning the salaams is dhikr.

The Woman Who Is Severely Beaten By Her

 Husband Has The Right To Ask For A Khul'ah

Author: Shaykh Fu’aad al-‘Amri
Translator: Abu Yusuf Khaleefah
Source: Asked on Istiqamah Hajj & Umrah Beginning of Rajab 1437/ Friday April 8th 2016

Question: Is it permissible for a woman who has been beaten by her husband to the point that she has been hospitalized to seek a Khul'ah?

Answer: Yes it is permissible for her to do so because this situation constitutes bad and harmful living conditions. She would give back the dowry and be released from the marriage by way of the Khul'ah. Rather, if she was in a place where there's an Islamic Judge, the judge would dissolve the marriage due to this abuse...

A Few Characteristics of the Haddādiyyah Sect



A Few Characteristics of the Haddādiyyah Sect

Author: Abu Dihyah Dawud Adib



It is important that we understand the following point very well: the Haddādiyyah Sect is extremely dangerous! We should always ask Allāh not to make us like them, to not cause us to emulate them while wearing the garments of Salafiyyah. For indeed, whoever imitates a people is from them!

Two of their characteristics are:

Fanatacism towards personalities, which is a common characteristic among the People of Blind Bigotry and Partisanship.
The Haddadi sect provides moral, intellectual, theological and logistic support to Dā'ish.


🔈 Abū Bakr bin Abī Dāwūd said in his Hā'iyyah:

ولا تعتقد رأي الخوارج إنه *** مقال لمن يهواه يردي ويفضح

And do not hold a belief like the Khawārij; for indeed it is a position only held by those who desire it, and it is destructive and disgraceful!

----------------

Shaykh Sālih al-Fawzān explains this line of poetry saying:



فمٓذهبُ الخٓوارِجِ يٓتفرّعُ منه فروعٌ قبيحةٌ فلا تعتقده أو تمل إليه بل اعتبره مذهباً باطلاً، و هذا في الذي يرى رأيٓهم و لو لم يفعل مثلٓ فعلِهم، فكٓيفٓ بالذي يرى رأيٓهم و يُنفِّذُه؟

Thus, this is the methodology of the Khawārij, from which sprung other repugnant branches [of methodologies and principles]. Therefore, do not hold these beliefs nor incline towards them, instead consider them false opinions [principles and concepts]. Keeping in mind that this is referring to those who only hold these opinions [principles and concepts] yet they have not carried out these actions. So how much more those who also hold these corrupted beliefs and concepts and carry them out?


⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕⭕

Shaykh Rabī described the Haddaadis, saying:

 الحدادية لهم أصل خبيث، وهو أنهم إذا ألصقوا بإنسان قولاً هو بريء منه ويعلن براءته منه، فإنهم يصرون على الاستمرار على رمي ذلك المظلوم بما ألصقوه به، فهم بهذا الأصل الخبيث يفوقون الخوارج

The Haddadis have an evil principle with them which is [the following]: Whenever they have attached to a [Salafi] individual that which he is in reality innocent of and [that Salafi has already] announced openly that he is indeed innocent of it - (i.e. what he is being falsely accused of) - they [the Haddādis] continue to hurl those accusations against that oppressed [Salafi] individual with that which they [the Haddadis] have [falsely] assigned to him.

Consequently, [by utilizing this technique] of their repugnant principle [they have concocted] they have exceeded the [methodology] of the Khawarij

********

In conclusion, we should check ourselves to see if any of these filthy principles have crept into our minds, hearts, or behaviors.

Oh Allāh! Do not make us like the people we warn against!

Shaikh Muhammad Bin Rabee' Al Madkhalee (hafithahullah) advised us with a tremendous word of advice, the Shaikh (hafithahullah) said,

I advise you brothers to stick to the Sunnah, hold on to it and don't waiver. Be firm upon the Sunnah and beware of the Haddaadiyyah (those Hizbees who are extreme and accuse Ahlus Sunnah of being people of Bid'ah due to mistakes). Beware of those who are extreme and harsh in their treatment of their Salafy brothers and unjustly accuse them of Tamyee' (being too soft and watering-down the Da'wah). Be firm upon the Sunnah and don't waiver!

Islamic Position With Regards To The Shiite: Shaykh Rabee Ibn Hadee



Islamic Position With Regards 

To The Shiite: Shaykh Rabee Ibn Hadee


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Q: What is the Islamic position with regards to the Shiite coming out of Iran, especially as it relates to the abundance of them present at the Sanctuary (in Mecca) and the elders from them? How do we interact with them?

A: Interaction with them falls between two (varying) circumstances. You either have the ability to affect them and to (properly) call them to Allah (worship of Him based on revelation) just as you would call the Jews and Christians to the truth making it clear to them. If this is the case, call them to Allah and if you do not possess the ability to do so (which is the second circumstance) then distance yourself from them. Allah only burdens an individual with that which he can bear.

And this is a calamity that has befallen to which there is no escape. It has befallen and is a trial for us, as we are unable to prevent them from entering the Two Sanctuaries. As a result we are tested by way of them just as the companions were tested by way of the hypocrites. So this is the reality. Consequently the strong students of knowledge and the scholars must take on the responsibility of inviting them to Allah, presenting (to them) the proofs, and referring them to the truth. Either they will accept and if not then the proof is established against them.

As for the small student of knowledge he distances himself and abandons them. He should not be like some who say “the Shiite are our brothers, the difference between us and them is like the difference between Malik and Shaafi’ee.” Those who say this are deceivers who misled the Muslims. A multitude of adherents to the Sunnah have plunged into the arms of the Shiite due to this watering down (and distortion) of the affair. Multitudes in Africa, (specifically) in Sudan and Egypt. Have you not heard about what transpired in Egypt during the medieval era? The batini Shiite ruled Egypt and circulated throughout the land shiism along with the batini ideology, then Allah granted Sallahuddin Al Ayyubi victory in conquering them. Subsequently their government fell and the Sunnah’s influence returned to Egypt. There remained some who upheld the batini ideology under the cloak of Sufism and this is the reason why they can’t outwardly display neither shiism nor the batini ideology.

Unfortunately in this era the craving of the Shiite has intensified with respect to returning shiism and batinism to that country and they have begun to spread their poison. Did you all hear the answer (to the initial question)? The Questioner asked about the Shiite and ones conduct with them. We replied with it being binding upon the strong students of knowledge and the scholars to invite them to Allah, and to make clear the truth. Perhaps Allah will guide whomever He wills from those among them. As for small students of knowledge they are to avoid, shun, and show no regard towards them. And we say the opposite of what some deceivers say from those involved in politics “the Shiite are our brothers, the difference between us and them is like the difference between Malik and Shaafi’ee.”

This is inventing a lie on Allah and misleading the Muslims, subsequently causing many from those who attribute themselves to the Sunnah to be flung into the arms of the Shiite.

Abū ʾUmāmah – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

Verily Shayṭān comes to your bed after your wife has made it and prepared it and throws a stick, a stone, or something [similar] on it to make the husband angry with his wife. So if someone finds this, let him not be angry with his wife, for it is the work of Shayṭān.
