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". 
Ibn Taymiyyah’s Fatawa (v. 28, p. 238)

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 “
