Do not scare the people with poverty

Do not scare the people with poverty

Shaykh Muhammad bin Bazmool

Shaykh Muhammad bin Bazmool said: 'Do not scare the people with poverty, scare them away from the sins which attract poverty. Trials and tribulations do not befall except due to sins. Sins are not removed except with repentance. . . 

﴿ وَأَن لَوِ استَقاموا عَلَى الطَّريقَةِ لَأَسقَيناهُم ماءً غَدَقًا ﴾
《If they had believed in Allaah, and went on the Right Way (i.e. Islam) We should surely have bestowed on them water (rain) in abundance.》

We go to sleep and wake up and a mobile phone is in our hands!!

Intellects have gone and minds have strayed. . . there is no reciting of Qur’aan, no Dhikr, no optional prayers, no Dua and no repentance.

O Allaah be gentle with our condition, rectify our hearts, return us to You in a good way without distress and adversity and without a misguiding Fitnah.’ 

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya Miraathpubs.net


*‏لا تخوفوا الناس من الفقر*

‏خوفوهم من الذنوب التي تجلب الفقر
‏فما نزل بلاء إلا بذنب ، ولا رفع إلا بتوبة ..

﴿ وَأَن لَوِ استَقاموا عَلَى الطَّريقَةِ لَأَسقَيناهُم ماءً غَدَقًا ﴾

ننام ونستيقظ والهواتف بين أيدينا .. !!
ذهبت العقول و شردت الأذهان ..
لا تلاوة للقرآن ؛ ولا ذكر ؛ ولانوافل
.؛ ولا دعاء ؛ولا توبة ؛
فاللهم الطف بحالنا واصلح قلوبنا وردنا إليك رداً جميلا من غير ضراء مضرة ولا فتنة مضلة .

The Zuhd of Abu Ubaydah and the Tears of Umar


The Zuhd of Abu Ubaydah and

 the Tears of Umar

It is reported from ʿAbdullāh b. ʿUmar:


When ʿUmar b. Al-Khaṭṭāb arrived in Al-Shām, he said to Abū ʿUbaydah – Allāh be pleased with them: “Take us to your home.” Abū ʿUbaydah said, “And what will you do with my home?” ʿUmar replied, “Just take us there.” Abū ʿUbaydah said, “You only want to cry your eyes out over me.” So he entered his house and saw nothing [by way of furnishings] in it. ʿUmar asked, “Where are your things? I see nothing but rags, a water-skin and a dish (tray), and you are a governor! Do you have food?” So Abū ʿUbaydah went over to an old pail (bucket) and took out some scraps, and ʿUmar began to weep. Abu ʿUbaydah said to him, “I told you you would cry your eyes out over me. O Commander of the Believers, sufficient for you from the dunyā is what delivers you to your place of rest.” ʿUmar said, “The dunyā changed us all except you Abū ʿUbaydah.”


Abū Dāwūd, Kitāb Al-Zuhd article 123, and others.

Household Chores Are From The Sunnah

Household Chores Are From The Sunnah

Noble Shaykh Muhammad Bin Saalih Al- 'Uthaymeen رحمه الله said ;

❝When a person is at home then it is from the Sunnah, that for example he makes his own tea, cooks if he knows how to and washes up that which needs washing, all of this is from the Sunnah.

If you do this then you get the reward of following the Sunnah, with imitating the Messenger [ﷺ] and in humbling yourself for Allaah - the Mighty and Majestic.

This also brings about love between you and your wife. When your family sense that you help them in their chores they will love you and your value to them will increase, therefore, this will end up being a great benefit.❞

[Sharh Riyadh As-Saaliheen, (3/529) | Translated By 'Abbaas Abu Yahya Miraath Al-Anbiyya]



Does Tying the Hair Come Under the Narration 

of the Camel Head – Shaykh Ibn Baz

Questioner:

Some women tie their hair at the back of the head. Does this come under what has been prohibited in the hadith of the Messenger […. and the women who would be dressed but appear to be naked, who would be inclined (to evil) and make their husbands incline towards it. Their heads would be like the humps of the bakht camel inclined to one side. They will not enter Paradise and they would not smell its odour whereas its odour would be smelt from such and such distance]?

Shaykh ʿAbd al-Azīz bin ʿAbdullah bin Bāz:

No. The hadith reads: “like the humps of camels inclined to one side”, meaning they gather things on top their heads in order to enlarge them. As for this tying of the hair, it does not come under the same ruling that the Messenger said. However, in the prayer they should untie it and let it loose [under their hijab] As for what has been reported in the hadith, “like the humps of camels inclined to one side”, this means that they gather things on the head such as cloth such that it appears like the humps of camels inclined to one side. The humps of the bakht camels look like two humps with something in between them.

THE PLACES OF RESIDENCE ARE THREE: IBN UL-QAYYIM



THE PLACES OF RESIDENCE ARE 

THREE: IBN UL-QAYYIM


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan mentioned in his explanation of Kitab at-Tawhid under the chapter [The Virtues of Tawhid and that which it Expiates from Sins], “The places of residence – as ibn ul-Qayyim mentioned – are three;


The First: The residence of this world, and it is the residence of actions and gaining [good deeds].


The Second: The residence of the Barzakh, and that is the residence within the graves, a barzakh between this world and the Hereafter. The term barzakh means a “divider” or “barrier” [i.e. the life within the graves is the seperator between this world and the Hereafter], and the life within the graves is [therefore] termed as the life of the barzakh. Within it are amazing affairs; in it is blessing or punishment,either a pit from the pits of the Hell-Fire, or a garden from the gardens of Paradise. The dead remain in their graves until Allah the Mighty and Majestic wishes to resurrect and gather them for accountability and recompense…[and so] this residence is a waiting station [until resurrection].


The Third: The residence of recompense, which is the Day of Judgement, [either] Paradise or Hell; and this residence does not perish nor cease ever. If a person believes in these two abodes [Paradise and Hell], then indeed that will cause a person to perform righteous actions and [seek] repentance from sins and wrong-doing. So if he is certain that Paradise exists, and that he cannot enter this Paradise except with righteous actions – then [surely] he will act [upon righteousness]. [Similarly] if he is certain that Hell exists and that he will enter it [if he performs] sins, disbelief and evil actions – then [surely] he will be wary and cautious of that and repent to Allah the Mighty and Majestic.


Therefore, eemaan in Paradise and Hell causes the slave to perform righteous actions and to seek repentance from sins and evil actions, as for the one who does not believe in the Hereafter, then this one will act in accordance to what his desires dictate to him and what his soul craves and he will not hold himself accountable [and reflect] ever”.

If the Husbands Wealth is Unlawful, What Should the Wife Do? 

 The Permanent Committee of Scholars


Question:

If the husbands wealth is unlawful, what should the wife do?



The Permanent Committee of Scholars:

If she knows that the earnings which the husband brings home is unlawful then it is not allowed for her to take from it. She should seek from him to make an earning from a lawful income, otherwise she should raise the issue to the authorities, such as the Islamic courts.

Teaching in the Great Mosque

 of Mecca Is a Great Trial 

Shaykh Taqi al-Din al-Hilali



SOURCE: al-Hilālī, Muḥammad Taqī ad-Dīn : al-Daʿwa Ilá Allah fī Aqṭār Mukhtalifa, Qahira: Maktabat Dār al-Kitāb wa as-Sunnah P.307



Shaykh Muḥammad Taqī al-Dīn al-Ḥilālī:

Me and a friend of mine were transferred to teach in the Great Mosque of Mecca; and indeed teaching in the Great Mosque of Mecca is a great trial for the teacher. Often you would find a teacher – well known for knowledge and virtue – sitting and teaching in the Great Mosque of Mecca, yet his gatherings would barely exceed ten people. Then you would find another teacher, someone less than the latter with regards to fame and knowledge, yet you would see hundreds in attendance of his lesson listening. These affairs run in accordance to that which Allah ﷻ has ordained for everyone. Just like you find with shopkeepers; you find one shop frequented with many customers who generate sales whilst the shop next door – even though it stocks the exact same or even better goods  – remains inactive, no customers visit it.



I – and all praise is due to Allah ﷻ – was from the blessed ones. Hundreds would attend my lesson which took place in front of the Gate of Ibrāhīm. I do not know the cause for this except that I used to speak in a dialect that could be understood by all Arabs. As for the other teachers, their lack of attendees was due to them speaking in a local dialect [which could only be understood] by a specific people.

Hiding your sins is not from hypocrisy

Explained by Shaykh bin Baz


The following is a summary translation



Questioner: Broadcasting sins is consider a sin, while the hypocrite is the one whose hidden affair contradicts what is apparent, thus he is sinning. So how do we reconcile between the two? Meaning is it hypocrisy to hide the sins and display righteousness?



Shaykh bin Baz: It is obligatory upon the Muslim to screen himself with the screen of Allah and to not expose his/her sins. Rather if he/she commits a sin he covers himself with the screen of Allah and he repents to Allah. This is based upon the statement of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم:



كُلُّ أُمَّتِي مُعَافًى إِلَّا الْمُجَاهِرِينَ



All of my Ummah will be pardoned except for the Mujahirin (those who commit a sin openly or disclose their sins to the people)



He deemed them to be from those who would not be pardoned.



أُمَّتِي مُعَافًى إِلاَّ الْمُجَاهِرِينَ، وَإِنَّ مِنَ الْمَجَانَةِ أَنْ يَعْمَلَ الرَّجُلُ بِاللَّيْلِ عَمَلاً، ثُمَّ يُصْبِحَ وَقَدْ سَتَرَهُ اللَّهُ، فَيَقُولَ يَا فُلاَنُ عَمِلْتُ الْبَارِحَةَ كَذَا وَكَذَ



All of my Ummah will be pardoned except for the the Mujahirin (those who commit a sin openly or disclose their sins to the people). An example of such disclosure is that a person commits a sin at night and though Allah screens it from the public, then he comes in the morning, and says, ‘O so-and-so, I did such-and-such (evil) deed yesterday’



Thus it is obligatory upon the Muslim to cover himself with the screen of Allah and to not expose the sins, and he/she must repent to Allah.



If the sin is hidden it only harms the sinner, but if it is publicized and not disapproved of it hurts the general populace. Therefore it is upon the sinner to fear Allah and to hide his/her sins and to repent to Allah from the sin, and to struggle against his/her soul. And the sinner must not publicize his sins because publicizing the sins is a great evil. It gives courage to others to sins by following his/her example, and not giving concern to sins, and having very little shyness.



If he/she commits the sin in private he is more likely to repent, thus Allah will accept his/her repentance. And this is not from hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is to hide disbelief while displaying the religion; this is hypocrisy. We ask Allah for safety and security.

Divorce Is Not The First Solution

Divorce Is Not The First Solution

Shaykh Saalih Al-Sadlaan states:

“It is not proper to turn to divorce for any problem which is solvable, or for any reason that may change in the future. A husband should never consider divorce simply because his emotions towards his wife have changed, or because there is suddenly something that he dislikes about her, or because he is not pleased with some of her actions or behaviour that are not related to one’s honor or the religion itself.

Emotions can change one hundred and eighty degrees. Temperatures may also change. Therefore, based on such things as this, one should not contemplate a very serious matter that will affect the complete make-up of the family.

It is a must upon the husband to study why his wife has become lax or lukewarm. He should also make it clear to her what his feelings are about the matter, perhaps she will point to some cause that he was unaware of. Then he might root out that problem or apologize for what he has done. Or, she may apologize after she recognises what she has been doing to him and she changes her way for what is best for him.”

You Think You Missed Out But In Reality Allah Protected You!...

You Think You Missed Out But In Reality Allah Protected You!...

Ibn Masud (رضي الله عنه) said:

Indeed a person will embark upon an affair of business or a position of authority until it becomes easy for him and he is close to achieving it. Thus Allah will look at him and say to the angels:  ❝Turn that away from him, for surely if I facilitate this for him I will enter him into the Hell-fire.❞ So Allah will turn this affair away from him. The person will continue to see this as a bad thing and he will say: ❝So and so beat me to this, so and so outsmarted me.❞ But in reality it is a blessing from Allah the Exalted.

[Ibn Rajab in Jaami' al-'Uloom w'al-Hukam]

The look is one of the poisonous arrows of the Devil 

 Shaykh Saalih Fawzan


The look is one of the poisonous arrows of the Devil. If a person shoots it out, it is indeed a poisonous missile that kills the one who sends it. This arrow returns back to the heart of the one looking.
The look is a poisonous arrow that returns to the heart of the onlooker, striking it and affecting it, or killing it and causing it to die. So none of them should look at what Allaah has forbidden. The creation of this look and this eyesight is a blessing, which humans must use for only that which Allaah has permitted. He must use them for only those things that Allaah has allowed and refrain from using them for those things that Allaah has forbidden. Allaah says about men: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze.” [Surah An-Noor: 30] And He says about women: “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze.” [Surah An-Noor: 31]

Tranquility & Peace – Imam Ibn al Qayyim



Tranquility & Peace 


By Shaykh Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah -Rahimullaah-
From his book ‘Madarij as-Salikeen’ 
Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya 

Shamsuddeen Muhammad bin Abee Bakr Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said:

‘Indeed Allaah mentioned ‘as-Sakeenah’ (Tranquility) in His Book in six places:

1) The saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< وَقَالَ لَهُمْ نَبِيُّهُمْ إِنَّ آيَةَ مُلْكِهِ أَنْ يَأْتِيَكُمُ التَّابُوتُ فِيهِ سَكِينَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ >>

<<  And their prophet said to them, Indeed, a sign of his kingship is that the chest will come to you in which is assurance from your Lord >>[al-Baqarah: 248]

2) The saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< ثُمَّ أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَى رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ >>

<<  Then Allah sent down His tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers >>[Tawbah: 26]

3) The saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لَا تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَنَا فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَمْ تَرَوْهَا

<<  and he said to his companion, ‘Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.’ And Allah sent down his tranquility upon him and supported him with Angels you did not see >>[Tawbah: 40]

4) The saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< هُوَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لِيَزْدَادُوا إِيمَانًا مَعَ إِيمَانِهِمْ وَلِلَّهِ جُنُودُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا >>

<<  It is He who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers that they would increase in faith along with their [present] faith. And to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth, and ever is Allah Knowing and Wise. >>[al-Fath: 4]

5) The saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< لَقَدْ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذْ يُبَايِعُونَكَ تَحْتَ الشَّجَرَةِ فَعَلِمَ مَا فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ فَأَنْزَلَ السَّكِينَةَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَثَابَهُمْ فَتْحًا قَرِيبًا >>

<<  Certainly was Allah pleased with the believers when they pledged allegiance to you, [O Muhammad], under the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, so He sent down tranquility upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest  >>[al-Fath: 18]

6) The saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< إِذْ جَعَلَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فِي قُلُوبِهِمُ الْحَمِيَّةَ حَمِيَّةَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَى رَسُولِهِ وَعَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ >>

<< When those who disbelieved had put into their hearts chauvinism – the chauvinism of the time of ignorance. But Allah sent down His tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers >>[al-Fath: 26]

Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah (d.728 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- used to read the Ayaat ofas-Sakeenah (Tranquility) if matters became intense for him.

And I heard him talk about a great incident which occurred when he was sick, the general intellect is too deficient to comprehend how evil souls emerged and waged war against him in his state of weakness.

Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah (d.728 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said :

When this matter became intense, I said to my relatives and those around me: ‘Read the Ayaat of as-Sakeenah (Tranquility).

Then I would be free from this condition, and I would sit up as if a transformation had taken place and there was nothing wrong with me.’

Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751 A.H.) -Rahimullaah- said:

I also tried this, and I read these Ayaat of as-Sakeenah (Tranquility) when the heart becomes agitated due to what affects it and I witnessed the amazing effects of theseAyaat on the tranquility of the heart and its peacefulness.’

Jokingly divorcing one’s wife


Jokingly divorcing one’s wife: The ruling – Shaykh Salih Fawzan

Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Source: alfawzan.af.org.sa/node/13728
Translation: aFatwa (site not exist now)

Question: What is the ruling regarding me saying to my wife that she is divorced jokingly with laughter?

Shaykh al-Fawzân: There is no joking or laughing when it comes to the divorce. Its joking is seriousness, as the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “If you jokingly tell her that she is divorced, she is divorced.”


Prohibition of giving women in 

marriage without their permission

 Fatwas of Ibn Baz

(Part No. 20; Page No. 409)

Q 173: My father forced my sixteen years old sister to marry a man whom she does not desire. She tries now to commit suicide saying that death is more desirable to her than this man (This was published in the Magazine of the Islamic University of Madina).


A: This manner of marriage is Munkar (that which is unacceptable or disapproved of by Islamic law and Muslims of sound intellect) and invalid according to the most correct view of scholars. This is because the Prophet (peace be upon him)  forbade giving women in marriage, except with their permission. He (peace be upon him) informed us that the silence of a virgin in answer to the proposal of marriage is deemed as her acceptance or consent. It was reported that when a young woman came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) to tell him that her father gave her in marriage without her consent, he (peace be upon him) gave her the choice either to stay with the husband or to reject him. Among the bad habits followed by the Bedouins and others is giving their virgin daughters in marriage without their permission. I hold the view to allow pious persons to act as an intermediary between the two parties to cancel the marriage contract. If they manage to do so, this is great; 
otherwise you should refer this issue to the court which will solve it. Allah is the Grantor of success!





THE TONGUE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS OF LIMBS


THE TONGUE IS THE MOST

 DANGEROUS OF LIMBS


Shaykh Ṣālih Al-Fawzān (hafidahullāh):


The tongue is the most dangerous of limbs, due to this every limb frees themselves from the tongue, admonishes it and reminds it to fear Allāh and have taqwa of Him, by saying:

” Fear Allāh for our sake, (for) we are with you; if you are upright, we will be upright; and if you are crooked, we will become crooked.” [1]
