Ahlus-Sunnah are the most knowledgeable of the people regarding the truth

Ahlus-Sunnah are the most knowledgeable

Is it permissible to go to beaches where there is nakedness and free mixing?

Is it permissible to go to beaches where there is nakedness and free mixing?

In Egypt, people go to Alexandria to spend the summer there. On the beaches there are thousands of women who are virtually naked, and men mix freely with women. I am a man with a beard; is it permissible for me to go there and sit by the sea, or not?

If the situation is as described, it is not permissible for a Muslim to go to these places, for fear of fitnah (temptation) and so as to avoid the places where it is to be found – unless he is one of those who are able to remove the evil things that are there, because they have the authority and the knowledge of sharee’ah, and are able to enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil.

From Fataawaa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 12/362

هل يجوز الذهاب إلى الشواطئ التي فيها عري واختلاط ?? 

س 1: يذهب الناس في مصر إلى مدينة الإسكندرية لقضاء الصيف هناك, ويوجد على البحر هناك الآلاف من النساء الكاسيات العاريات, واختلاط الرجال بالنساء, وإني رجل ملتح فهل يجوز لي الذهاب هناك والجلوس على 
البحر أم لا يجوز? 

ج 1: إذا كان الواقع كما ذكر فلا يجوز للمسلم أن يذهب إلى تلك المجتمعات; خشية الفتنة واجتنابا لمواطنها, إلا أن يكون ممن يقوى على إزالة ما فيها من المنكرات; لما له من سلطة ومعرفة بالشرع وقوة على البيان في الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر.

وبالله التوفيق وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه وسلم.

Al-Bukhaari narrated in al-Saheeh that Abu Hurayrah  رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ said: “The Messenger of Allaah  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said that Moosa (peace be upon him) was a very shy and modest man, and none of his skin was ever seen because he was so modest. So some of the Children of Israel annoyed him by saying, ‘He is only being so modest because he has some fault in his skin, such as leprosy, scrotal hernia, etc.’ Allaah wanted to demonstrate that he was free of what they were saying about him. One day Moosa went away by himself, put his garment on a rock and washed himself. When he had finished, he went to pick up his garment, and the rock ran away with it. Moosa picked up his stick and ran after the rock, saying, ‘My garment, O rock! My garment, O rock!’ Then he reached a group of the Children of Israel, who saw him naked and that he was the best that Allaah had created and the most free of the faults that they had spoken of. Then the rock stopped, so Moosa took his garment and struck the rock with his stick. By Allaah, there were marks left on the rock by his stick, three or four or five. This is what Allaah said (interpretation of the meaning): ‘O you who believe! Be not like those who annoyed Moosa (Moses), but Allaah cleared him of that which they alleged, and he was honourable before Allaah’ [al-Ahzaab 33:69].”

(Saheeh al-Bukhaari, 3404)

روى البخاري في الصحيح عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ مُوسَى كَانَ رَجُلا حَيِيًّا سِتِّيرًا لا يُرَى مِنْ جِلْدِهِ شَيْءٌ اسْتِحْيَاءً مِنْهُ فَآذَاهُ مَنْ آذَاهُ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فَقَالُوا مَا يَسْتَتِرُ هَذَا التَّسَتُّرَ إِلا مِنْ عَيْبٍ بِجِلْدِهِ إِمَّا بَرَصٌ وَإِمَّا أُدْرَةٌ وَإِمَّا آفَةٌ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُبَرِّئَهُ مِمَّا قَالُوا لِمُوسَى فَخَلا يَوْمًا وَحْدَهُ فَوَضَعَ ثِيَابَهُ عَلَى الْحَجَرِ ثُمَّ اغْتَسَلَ فَلَمَّا فَرَغَ أَقْبَلَ إِلَى ثِيَابِهِ لِيَأْخُذَهَا وَإِنَّ الْحَجَرَ عَدَا بِثَوْبِهِ فَأَخَذَ مُوسَى عَصَاهُ وَطَلَبَ الْحَجَرَ فَجَعَلَ يَقُولُ ثَوْبِي حَجَرُ ثَوْبِي حَجَرُ حَتَّى انْتَهَى إِلَى مَلإ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فَرَأَوْهُ عُرْيَانًا أَحْسَنَ مَا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ وَأَبْرَأَهُ مِمَّا يَقُولُونَ وَقَامَ الْحَجَرُ فَأَخَذَ ثَوْبَهُ فَلَبِسَهُ وَطَفِقَ بِالْحَجَرِ ضَرْبًا بِعَصَاهُ فَوَاللَّهِ إِنَّ بِالْحَجَرِ لَنَدَبًا مِنْ أَثَرِ ضَرْبِهِ ثَلاثًا أَوْ أَرْبَعًا أَوْ خَمْسًا فَذَلِكَ قَوْلُهُ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ آذَوْا مُوسَى فَبَرَّأَهُ اللَّهُ مِمَّا قَالُوا وَكَانَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَجِيهًا صحيح البخاري

Imaam Bukhaari -rahimahullah-

Chapter 207: Extravagance in Property

442.   Abu Hurayra said: "The Messenger of Allah (صلي الله عليه وسلم) said, 'Allah is pleased with you about three things and He is angry with you about three things. He is pleased that you worship Him, not associating anything with Him, that you all take hold of the rope of Allah and that you are sincere to those that Allah has put in authority over you. He dislikes you engaging in idle talk, asking too many questions and squandering wealth.' "

443.   (ATH 103) Ibn 'Abbaas commented about the words of Allah, the Mighty and Exalted: "Whatever you spend, He will replace and He  is the best of Providers' (34: 39), '(whatever you spend) without extravagance or stinginess.' "

Allaah's CURSE IS UPON...!

Allaah's CURSE IS UPON...!

Muslim reports that Ali bin Abi Talib رضي الله عنه said:

"Allah's Messenger صلي الله عليه وسلم informed me about four Judgments (of Allaah): (1) Allaah's curse is upon the one who slaughters (devoting his sacrifice) to anything other than Allah; (2) Allaah's curse is upon the one who curses his own parents; (3) Allaah's curse is upon the one who shelters an heretic (who has brought a Bid'ah in religion); (4) Allaah's curse is upon the one who alters the landmarks (who changes boundary lines)."

The foundation of Ahlus Sunnah’s Madhab

The foundation of Ahlus Sunnah’s Madhab

An-Nasr Abaadiy (rahimahullaah) said:

”The foundation of this Madhab (i.e. the Madhab of Ahlus Sunnah) is adherence to the Book and the Sunnah; abandonment of desires and innovations; to take the Salaf as an example and abandon what the late comers have invented (in the religion), and to be established upon what those who came earlier (i.e. the Salaf) followed.”

There will be no stability in the home...

Ash-Sheij Saalih al'Fawzaan حفظه الله تعالى :

"The home (is a place) in which the husband lives in tranquillity, safety and stability, and it is that which will reap fruits for his Ummah. The home (is a place) in which the children are raised correctly which will result in the rectification of the future generations. And the two spouses are the foundation of the family. If the relationship between the two of them is bad, then there will be no stability in the home."

Detailed Refutation Of ISIS And Its False Khilāfah

All praises belong to Allāh alone, may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon the one who has no Prophet after him, our Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, upon his family and companions. Thereafter;

Several years ago, a sect emerged in ‘Irāq calling itself the ‘Islamic State in ‘Irāq and Syria’, it became commonly known by four letters, these are the first letters of this so-called State, so it is said to it: ISIS.
This sect was subsequently led by – as mentioned by some observers of its occurrence and events – a number of people, it is referred to one of them as Abū so-and-so, or Abū so-and-so son of so-and-and so, a nickname with an attribution to a country or a tribe, usually given to the unknowns that take cover under nicknames and lineages.

After the passing of a period of war that took place in Syria between the regime and those that fought against it, there entered a group of people from this group, who were not fighting the regime, rather they were fighting and destroying Ahlus-Sunnah, those who themselves are opposed to the regime.
It also became known that their killing of those they intend to kill is done with knives, which is regarded to be the most gruesome and the cruelest way of killing humans.

Towards the beginning of the present month of Ramadān, they changed the name of their group to “The Islamic State” and a sermon was delivered by their (so-called) “Caliph” Abū Bakr al-Baghdādī in a mosque located in Mosul.

From what he said in his sermon is: “Indeed I have been appointed your leader, although I am not better than anyone from among you”.

He spoke the truth in that he is not the best of them, since killing those that they kill with knives, if it was done by his command or with his knowledge and approval, then he is from the worst of them.
This is because of the statement of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم:

"Whoever calls to guidance will have the reward similar to all those who follow him without their reward diminishing. Whoever calls to misguidance, he will have sins similar to all those that follow him without their sins decreasing." • [مسلم]

This sentence that he said in his sermon was said by the first Caliph of Islām after the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم, Abū Bakr as-Siddīq رضي الله عنه, and he is the best of this nation, which is the best of all nations. He said it with humility, whilst knowing and the Companions also knowing that he is the best among them because of the evidences showing this from the speech of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.
It is for the betterment of this group that they look at themselves and return to their senses before its state becomes blown away by the wind, just like its counterparts that preceded it throughout different eras.

Regrettably, this so-called caliphate which was born only a few days ago was met with acceptance by a few youth in the land of the Two Holy Mosques, they expressed their joy and pleasure for it like a thirsty person expresses his happiness when he sees a mirage (deception), and among them are those who have pledged allegiance to this unknown caliph!

How can good be hoped from those that have been afflicted with charging others with disbelief and killing them in the most heinous and outrageous ways?!

It is an obligation upon those youth to deem themselves far above from drifting behind the cawing of every caw. They should relate their actions back to what has been revealed by Allāh سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم, because in it is immunity, safety and salvation in this world and the Hereafter. They should refer back to the scholars who are sincere in their advice to them and to the Muslims.

From the examples of those who contemplated misguidance but instead remained safe due to referring (their affair) back to the people of knowledge is what has been narrated by Muslim in his Sahīh on the authority of Yazīd al-Faqīr (who) said:

"I was infatuated with the views of the Khawārij. We set out with a large group, intending to perform Hajj, and then to go and promote the views of the Khawārij to the people. We passed through al-Madīnah, and there we saw Jābir b. ‘Abdullāh narrating to the people from the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم. He was sitting by a pillar, and he mentioned the Jahannamiyyūn.

I said to him:

O companion of the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم, what is it that you are narrating? Allāh has stated, Verily, whom You admit to the fire, indeed, you have disgraced him.' • [al-Qur`ān 3:192]
'Every time they wish to get away there from, they will be put back thereto.' • [al-Qur`ān 32:20]
What is this that you are saying?

He said:

'Do you read the Qur`ān?'

I said:


He said:

'Have you heard of the station of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم to which Allāh will raise him?'

I said:


He said:

'That is the station of praise and glory belonging to Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم by means of which Allāh will bring out whomever He wishes to bring out (from the fire).'

Then he described how the Sirāt (the bridge over Hell) will be set, and the people will cross over it.
I said:

'I am afraid I did not memorise that'
He said:

'Some people will be brought forth from the Fire after having been in it. They will come out as if they are branches of sesame. Then they will go into one of the rivers of paradise, where they will emerge (white and clean) like sheets of paper.'

We went back and said:

'Woe to you people! Do you think that this old man would tell lies about the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم?'

So we returned, and by Allāh none of us went out (to promote the views of the Khawārij) apart from one man.” • [رواه أبو نعيم]

(This Hadīth) explains how this group of people were afflicted with the admiration of the Kharijite view in charging the doer of major sin with disbelief and that he must abide forever in Hell, By meeting Jābir رضي الله عنه and by him explaining to them, they became what he guided them to, and they left the falsehood which they had understood, and they corrected themselves away from wanting to cause a rebellion after Hajj.

This is from the greatest benefits that a Muslim can benefit from by going back to the people of knowledge.

(From that which) shows the serious nature of extremism in the religion, deviating from the true path and leaving the way of the Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamā’ah is the statement of (the Prophet) from the Hadīth of Hudhayfah رضي الله عنه:

"What I fear most for you, is a man who reads the Qur`ān, until such a time when the blessings of the Qur`ān are reflected upon him and he takes Islām as his cloak. He then turns around and takes it off and throws it behind his back, then he heads quickly towards his neighbour with his sword unsheathed and he calls him a Mushrik (Idol-Worshipper).

I said:

'Oh Prophet of Allāh! Who is more worthy of being called a Mushrik? The one being attacked or the attacker?'

He replied

'It is indeed the attacker.'” • [البخاري، صححه الألباني]

Young age is when misunderstandings often take place, this is indicated by that which Bukhārī narrated in his Sahīh with his chain of narration to Hishām-b. ‘Urwah who narrated from his father, that he said:
I said to ‘Ā`ishah the wife of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, whilst I was a young boy: How do you interpret the statement of Allāh:

'Verily, Safā and Marwah (i.e. two mountains at Makkah) are among the symbols of Allāh. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs ‘Umrah – there is no blame upon him for walking between them.' • [al-Qur`ān 2:158]

So it is not wrong for those who perform the Hajj to the House of Allāh or perform the ‘Umrah, to make Tawāf between them. In my opinion it is not sinful for one not to make Tawāf between them.’
‘Ā`ishah رضي الله عنها replied:

'Your interpretation is wrong; if it is as you say, then the Āyah should have been: “It is not harmful of those who perform the Hajj or 'Umrah to the house, not to make Tawāf between them.”'
This verse was revealed in connection to the Ansār who (during the Pre-Islamic period) used to visit Manāt (an idol) after assuming their Ihrām, and it was situated near Qudaid (a place at Makkah), and they used to regard it sinful to make Tawāf between as-Safā and al-Marwah after embracing Islām. When Islām came, they asked the Messenger of Allāh about it, whereupon Allāh revealed:

'Verily, Safā and Marwah (i.e. two mountains at Makkah) are among the symbols of Allāh. So it is not harmful of those who perform the Hajj of the House (Allāh) or perform 'Umrah, to ambulate (Tawāf) between them.' • [al-Qur`ān 20:158]

‘Urwa b. Zubair was from the best of the Tābi’īn, and he was one of the seven jurists of Madīnah during the period of the Tābi’īn, he explained that the reason for making mistake in understanding was due to him being of  young age at the time when he asked (the question).

It is clear (from this) that young age is the most likely reason for misunderstanding; and returning to the people of knowledge is better and safe.

Also in Sahīh al-Bukhārī on the authority of Jundub b. ‘Abdullāh, He said:

"The first thing of the human body to putrefy is the abdomen, so he who can eat nothing but pure food should do so. A person should try so much so that nothing intervenes between him and Paradise by not shedding even a handful of blood."

al-Hāfidh (Ibn Hajar al-Asqalānī رحمه الله) said in Al-Fath (13/130): This narration has also come on the authority of the Prophet, by way of Ismā’īl b. Muslim, from al-Hassan, from Jundub, with the wording:

“Do you know that I heard the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم saying,

"Nothing should intervene between one of you and Paradise while he sees it, even a handful of blood of a Muslim that he shed unlawfully."

I have mentioned some of these Prophetic traditions and narrations in my article: “With which Religion and intellect are suicide bombings and destruction considered Jihād?”

My article contains many Āyāt and Prophetic narrations relating to the prohibition of killing oneself and killing others unlawfully. It has been printed independently in the year 1424 H, and then published again in the year 1428 H along with another article entitled: “An advice and a reminder to the remaining few who have been afflicted with Takfīr and Tafjīr.” It is in my collection of books and articles. [6-225-279].

It is upon these youth who have fallen in line with this group, that they should rectify themselves, and come to their senses. None among them should think of joining (ISIS), lest their life be taken by explosive belts that they make them wear, or be slaughtered with knives, which is a distinctive feature of this group.

It is upon them to keep to the obedience of the state of Sa’udī ‘Arabiah that they have lived in, and their fathers and forefathers have lived in under its governance, in security and safety. It is truly the exemplary country of the world, and the best of (countries) – although it has its shortcomings, which is mainly caused by the affliction (of those that seek to) westernise this land; (those) who follow the West in all that is harmful.

I ask Allāh سبحانه وتعالى to reconcile the affairs of the Muslims everywhere, and to guide their youth – male and female – to all that is good, and to protect the land of the Two Holy Mosques, its government and its people from all evil, and to grant them success for all good, and to protect it from the evil of the evil people, and from the plots of the mischief makers.

Verily He is all hearing and answers the supplications.

May the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and companions.

الحمد لله وحده وصلى الله وسلم على من لا نبي بعده نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه. أما بعد؛

فقد ولد في العراق قبل عدة سنوات فرقة أطلقت على نفسها دولة الإسلام بالعراق والشام، واشتهر ذكرها بأربعة حروف هي الحروف الأوائل لهذه الدولة المزعومة فيقال لها: ((داعش))، وقد تعاقب على زعامتها ـ كما ذكر ذلك بعض المتابعين لحدوثها وأحداثها ـ عدد يقال للواحد منهم: أبو فلان الفلاني أو أبو فلان ابن فلان، كنية معها نسبة إلى بلد أو قبيلة كما هو شأن المجاهيل المتسترين بالكنى والأنساب، وبعد مضي مدة على الحرب التي وقعت في سوريا بين النظام والمقاتلين له دخل أعداد من هذه الفرقة غير مقاتلين للنظام، لكنهم يقاتلون أهل السنة المناوئين للنظام ويفتكون بهم، وقد اشتهر أن قتلهم لمن يريدون قتله يكون بالسكاكين الذي هو من أبشع وأنكى ما يكون في قتل الآدميين، وفي أوائل شهر رمضان الحالي حوَّلوا تسمية فرقتهم إلى اسم ((الخلافة الإسلامية))، وخطب خليفتهم الذي أُطلق عليه أبو بكر البغدادي في جامع في الموصل، ومما قاله في خطبته: ((فقد وُلِّيت عليكم ولست بخيركم))، وقد صدق في أنه ليس بخيرهم؛ لأن قتل من يقتلونه بالسكاكين إن كان بأمره أو بعلمه وإقراره فهو شرهم؛ لقوله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ((من دعا إلى هدى كان له من الأجر مثل أجور من تبعه، لا ينقص ذلك من أجورهم شيئا، ومن دعا إلى ضلالة كان عليه من الإثم مثل آثام من تبعه، لا ينقص ذلك من آثامهم شيئا)) رواه مسلم (6804)، وهذه الجملة التي قالها في خطبته قد قالها أول خليفة في الإسلام بعد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أبو بكر الصديق رضي الله عنه وأرضاه وهو خير هذه الأمة التي هي خير الأمم، قالها تواضعا وهو يعلم والصحابة يعلمون أنه خيرهم للأدلة الدالة على ذلك من كلام رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، ومن الخير لهذه الفرقة أن تراجع نفسها وتؤوب إلى رشدها قبل أن تكون دولتها في مهب الرياح كشأن مثيلاتها التي سبقتها في مختلف العصور.

ومما يؤسف له أن فتنة هذه الخلافة المزعومة التي وُلدت قبل أيام لقيت قبولا عند بعض صغار الشباب في بلد الحرمين أظهروا فرحهم وسرورهم بها كما يفرح الظمآن بالسراب، وفيهم من زعم مبايعة هذا الخليفة المجهول! وكيف يُرتجى خير ممن ابتلوا بالتكفير والتقتيل بأشنع القتل وأفظعه؟! والواجب على هؤلاء الشباب أن يربأوا بأنفسهم عن الانسياق وراء نعيق كل ناعق، وأن يكون الرجوع في كل التصرفات إلى ما جاء عن الله عز وجل وعن رسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم؛ لأن في ذلك العصمة والسلامة والنجاة في الدنيا والآخرة، وأن يرجعوا إلى العلماء الناصحين لهم وللمسلمين، ومن أمثلة سلامة من فكَّر في ضلال بسبب رجوعه إلى أهل العلم ما رواه مسلم في صحيحه (191) عن يزيد الفقير قال: ((كنتُ قد شَغَفَنِي رأيٌ من رأي الخوارج، فخرجنا في عِصابةٍ ذوي عدد نريد أن نحجَّ، ثمَّ نخرجَ على الناس، قال: فمررنا على المدينة فإذا جابر بن عبد الله يُحدِّث القومَ ـ جالسٌ إلى ساريةٍ ـ عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، قال: فإذا هو قد ذكر الجهنَّميِّين، قال: فقلتُ له: يا صاحبَ رسول الله! ما هذا الذي تُحدِّثون؟ والله يقول: {إِنَّكَ مَن تُدْخِلِ النَّارَ فَقَدْ أَخْزَيْتَهُ}، و {كُلَّمَا أَرَادُوا أَن يَخْرُجُوا مِنْهَا أُعِيدُوا فِيهَا}، فما هذا الذي تقولون؟ قال: فقال: أتقرأُ القرآنَ؟ قلتُ: نعم! قال: فهل سمعت بمقام محمد عليه السلام، يعني الذي يبعثه فيه؟ قلتُ: نعم! قال: فإنَّه مقام محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم المحمود الذي يُخرج اللهُ به مَن يُخرج. قال: ثمَّ نعتَ وضعَ الصِّراط ومرَّ الناس عليه، قال: وأخاف أن لا أكون أحفظ ذاك. قال: غير أنَّه قد زعم أنَّ قوماً يَخرجون من النار بعد أن يكونوا فيها، قال: يعني فيخرجون كأنَّهم عيدان السماسم، قال: فيدخلون نهراً من أنهار الجنَّة فيغتسلون فيه، فيخرجون كأنَّهم القراطيس. فرجعنا، قلنا: وَيْحَكم! أَتَروْنَ الشيخَ يَكذِبُ على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم؟! فرجعنا، فلا ـ والله! ـ ما خرج منَّا غيرُ رَجل واحد، أو كما قال أبو نعيم )). وأبو نعيم هو الفضل بن دكين هو أحد رجال الإسناد، وهو يدلُّ على أنَّ هذه العصابةَ ابتُليت بالإعجاب برأي الخوارج في تكفير مرتكب الكبيرة وتخليده في النار، وأنَّهم بلقائهم جابراً رضي الله عنه وبيانه لهم صاروا إلى ما أرشدهم إليه، وتركوا الباطلَ الذي فهموه، وأنَّهم عدلوا عن الخروج الذي همُّوا به بعد الحجِّ، وهذه من أعظم الفوائد التي يستفيدها المسلم برجوعه إلى أهل العلم.

ويدلُّ لخطورة الغلو في الدِّين والانحراف عن الحقِّ ومجانبة ما كان عليه أهل السنَّة والجماعة قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم من حديث حذيفة رضي الله عنه: ((إنَّ أخوفَ ما أخاف عليكم رجل قرأ القرآن، حتى إذا رُئيت بهجته عليه وكان ردءاً للإسلام، انسلخ منه ونبذه وراء ظهره، وسعى على جاره بالسيف ورماه بالشرك، قلت: يا نبيَّ الله! أيُّهما أولى بالشرك: الرامي أو المرمي؟ قال: بل الرامي)) رواه البخاري في التاريخ وأبو يعلى وابن حبان والبزار، انظر الصحيحة للألباني (3201).
وحداثةُ السنِّ مظنَّة سوء الفهم، يدلُّ لذلك ما رواه البخاري في صحيحه (4495) بإسناده إلى هشام بن عروة، عن أبيه أنَّه قال: (( قلت لعائشة زوج النَّبيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وأنا يومئذ حديث السنِّ: أرأيتِ قول الله تبارك وتعالى: {إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِن شَعَآئِرِ اللَّهِ فَمَنْ حَجَّ الْبَيْتَ أَوِ اعْتَمَرَ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِ أَن يَطَّوَّفَ بِهِمَا} ، فما أرى على أحد شيئاً أن لا يطوَّف بهما، فقالت عائشة: كلاَّ! لو كانت كما تقول كانت: فلا جناح عليه أن لا يطوَّف بهما، إنَّما أنزلت هذه الآية في الأنصار، كانوا يُهلُّون لِمناة، وكانت مناة حذو قديد، وكانوا يتحرَّجون أن يطوَّفوا بين الصفا والمروة، فلمَّا جاء الإسلام سألوا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن ذلك، فأنزل الله  {إِنَّ الصَّفَا وَالْمَرْوَةَ مِن شَعَآئِرِ اللَّهِ فَمَنْ حَجَّ الْبَيْتَ أَوِ اعْتَمَرَ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِ أَن يَطَّوَّفَ بِهِمَا})).

وعروة بن الزبير من خيار التابعين، وهو أحدُ الفقهاء السبعة بالمدينة في عصر التابعين، قد مهَّد لعُذره في خطئه في الفهم بكونه في ذلك الوقت الذي سأل فيه حديثَ السنِّ، وهو واضحٌ في أنَّ حداثةَ السنِّ مظنَّةُ سوء الفهم، وأنَّ الرجوع إلى أهل العلم فيه الخير والسلامة.

وفي صحيح البخاري (7152) عن جندب بن عبد الله قال: ((إنَّ أوَّل ما ينتن من الإنسان بطنُه، فمَن استطاع أن لا يأكل إلاَّ طيِّباً فليفعل، ومَن استطاع أن لا يُحال بينه وبين الجنَّة بملء كفٍّ من دم هراقه فليفعل))، قال الحافظ في الفتح (13/130): ((ووقع مرفوعاً عند الطبراني أيضاً من طريق إسماعيل بن مسلم، عن الحسن، عن جندب، ولفظه: (تعلمون أنِّي سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول:  لا يحولنَّ بين أحدكم وبين الجنَّة وهو يراها ملءُ كفِّ دم من مسلم أهراقه بغير حلِّه)، وهذا لو لم يرِد مصرَّحاً برفعه لكان في حكم المرفوع؛ لأنَّه لا يُقال بالرأي، وهو وعيد شديد لقتل المسلم بغير حقٍّ)).

وهذه الأحاديث والآثار هي بعض ما أوردته في رسالة ((بأي عقل ودين يكون التفجير والتدمير جهادا؟! ويحكم أفيقوا يا شباب))، وفيها آيات عديدة وأحاديث وآثار كثيرة في تحريم قتل الإنسان نفسه وقتله لغيره بغير حق، وقد طبعت هذه الرسالة مفردة في عام 1424هـ، وطبعت سنة 1428هـ مع رسالة أخرى بعنوان: ((بذل النصح والتذكير لبقايا المفتونين بالتكفير والتفجير)) ضمن مجموع كتبي ورسائلي (6/225-279).

وعلى هؤلاء الشباب الذين انساقوا وراء نعيق هذه الفرقة أن يراجعوا أنفسهم ويثوبوا إلى رشدهم وألا يفكر أحد منهم باللحوق بها فيخرجون من الحياة بالأحزمة الناسفة التي يُلبسون إياها أو بذبح بالسكاكين الذي هو ميزة لهذه الفرقة، وعليهم أن يلزموا السمع والطاعة للدولة السعودية التي عاشوا وعاش آباؤهم وأجدادهم في ولايتها بأمن وأمان، فهي بحق أمثل دول العالم وخيرها على ما فيها من قصور من أعظم أسبابه فتنة التغريبيين في هذه البلاد الذين يلهثون وراء تقليد الغرب في كل ما فيه مضرة.

وأسأل الله عز وجل أن يصلح أحوال المسلمين في كل مكان، وأن يهدي شبابهم من البنين والبنات إلى كل خير،وأن يحفظ بلاد الحرمين حكومة وشعبا من كل سوء، وأن يوفقها لكل خير، وأن يقيها شر الأشرار وكيد الفجار، إنه سميع مجيب، وصلى الله وسلم على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه.

’Uthaimeen: The Layman in His Belief and Sincerity is Better than Many ‘Students of Knowledge.’

’Uthaimeen: The Layman in His Belief and Sincerity is Better than Many ‘Students of Knowledge.’

Questioner: I want to ask you about [the periods of] slackness [a person goes through], its causes and the cure for it, because a person sometimes feels weakness in his [practice of the] religion?

’Uthaimeen: It is not possible for a person to remain on a single uniform routine, even the Companions said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah! When we are with you we take heed and believe, and when we go to our families, our women and children, we forget,’ so he said, ‘A time for this and a time for that.’

It is not possible for a person to remain on a single uniform routine, but he must try to guard his heart’s uprightness, when the heart becomes good the whole body does so too.

He must leave delving into things that do not concern him.
He must leave disputing about things that have no benefit.
He must leave partisanship which has split the Ummah, and he must turn to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.

For this reason you will see that the layman is better in his belief ['aqeedah] and sincerity than many of the students of knowledge, [students of knowledge] whose only concern is to criticise and refute, [whose only concern is], ‘It was said and he said [qeel wa qaal],’ and, ‘What do you say, O so and so?’ and, ‘What do you say about so and so?’ and, ‘What do you say about that book and about what so and so wrote?’

This is what causes a servant to become lost and takes Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, away from his heart, and leaves him without any concern except for, ‘It was said … he said …’

So my advice to every person is that he turns to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and that he leaves the people and their disagreements.

This is the best thing.”

Claim of Jihad

Claim of Jihad

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Shaykh Salih al Fawzan said :

‘They claim: those who bomb buildings and kill the innocent and do what they do, they do this due to the Deen (religion of Islaam).
We say: you have lied. They have done this due to the ignorance of the Deen.’

[From: 'Sharh Risalat ad-Dalail fee hukm mawalat ahl ul Ishraak' p. 108]
