“Remember Allāh when you forget.” [Al-Kahf 24]

It has been said [with regard to this]:

1. When you forget to say “in shā Allāh” [if Allāh wills] about a future matter, say it when you remember.

2. Remember Allāh [in your heart and on your tongue] when you get angry.

3. When you forget something, remember Allāh [in your heart and on your tongue] to remember it.

Shaykh Zayd Ibn Muhammad al Madhkhali رحمه الله stated:

Shaykh Zayd Ibn Muhammad al Madhkhali رحمه الله  stated:

“Verily every da’wah (call) done in the name of Islam and in the name of the legislation of the best mankind (i.e. Muhammad ) and is not upon the prophetic way, success will never be written for it, no matter how much propaganda is put in place for it or how much it is pushed in the society.”

Random Quote of the Day

Imām ash-Shāfi’ī (d. 204  هـ - رحمه الله) said:

“If you see a man walking on water and flying in the air then do not be tempted with [enquiring about] him until you examine his affair upon the Qur’ān and Sunnah.”

Look To Whom You Sit With...


قال الفضيل بن عياض رحمه الله: إن لله ملائكة يطلبون حلق الذكر، فانظر مع من يكون مجلسك، لا يكون مع صا حب بدعة: فإن الله تعالى لا ينظر إليهم، وعلامة النفاق أن يقوم الرجل ويقعد مع صاحب بدعة، وأدركت خيار الناس كلهم أصحاب سنة وهم ينهون عن أصحاب البدعة

Al-Fudayl Ibn ‘Iyaad  (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said:

“Allaah has angels that seek out the gatherings of remembrance (of Him), so look to whom your sitting is with, let it not be with a person of bid’ah, since Allaah will not look towards them, and the sign of hypocrisy is that a man stands and sits with a person of bid’ah. And I reached the best of people, all of them people of Sunnah and they (all) warned against the people of bid’ah.”

The importance of 'Aqīdah!

Shaykh Rabīal-Madkhalī said:

By Allāh, there is no value in knowing Fiqh or other than it if we have neglected Tawīd, and we have fallen into committing shirk with Allāh the Most High. There is no benefit in this knowledge whatsoever. Even if we memorise the Qurān, memorise the adith and memorise the books of Fiqh whilst falling into the darknesses of shirk! There is no value in that and we will not benefit from this knowledge ever!

Ahl al-Sunnah do not and will not compromise their deen!

Abū ʿUthmān Ismāʿīl b. ʿAbd al-Ramān al-ābūnī raimahullah [d. 449H] said:

Ahl al-Sunnah distance themselves from Ahl al-Bidʿah and al-alālat. They abstain from the people of desires and ignorance. They emulate the example of al-salaf al-ali, those among the imāms of this dīn and the ulāmaʾ of the muslimīn. They hold onto what they have held onto, from  sound religion and  clear Truth.

They detest Ahl al-Bidaʿ, those who have innovated  into the religion  what is not  from it. They do not love them, take them as companions nor listen to what they say.

They do not sit with them and argue with them in matters related to the religion. They do not debate with them. Instead, they safeguard their ears from listening to their falsehood falsehood if it were to pass through  their ears and settle in their hearts, it would cause damage  and elicit evil whispers and thoughts.

In this regard, Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic, revealed:

“And when you see those engage in a false discourse concerning  Our verses by  mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic.” Qurʾān: 6:68.

ʿAqīdah al-Salaf Asāb al-adīth, p. 298.


Clinging to the Sunnah


“Ibraaheem at-Taymee used to say:

‘O Allaah protect me with Your Religion, and with the Sunnah of Your Prophet, from differing regarding the truth, and from the following of desires, and from the paths of misguidance, and from affairs producing doubts, and from deviation and argumentation’.”

al-I’tisaam of ash-Shaatibee (1/116) [Daar Ibn  ‘Affaan, Ist edn., 1412]

وكان إبراهيم التيمي يقول : اللَّهُمَّ اعْصِمْنِي بِدِينِكَ، وَبِسُّنَّةِ نَبِيِّكَ مِنَ الاِخْتِلَافِ فِي الْحَقِّ ، وَمِنِ اتِّبَاعِ الْهَوَى ، وَمِنْ سُبُلِ الضَّلَالَةِ ، ومن شُبُهَاتِ الْأُمُورِ ، وَمِنَ الزَّيْغِ وَالْخُصُومَاتِ

“Allahumma I’simnee bi Deenika, wa bi Sunnati Nabiyyika min al-Ikhtilaafi fil-Haqq, wa min Ittibaa’il-Hawaa, wa  min subulid-Dalaalah, wa min Shubuhaatil-Umoor, wa min az-Zayghi wal-Khusumaat.”
