How often do you remember Allāh?!


Indeed, remembering Allāh often is a safeguard from hypocrisy, for the hypocrites remember Allāh only a little as Allāh says about them:

وَلاَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللهَّ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا ...

“… and they do not remember Allah except a little”[Surah Nisa, v. 142]

Taken from the book “Fiqhul Ad’yati wal Adhkār” of Shaykh ‘Abdurrazāq Al-Badr

The People are 4, and the Deeds are 6

THE PEOPLE ARE OF FOUR TYPES, AND THE DEEDS ARE SIX

(From ‘AS-SAHEEHAH’ (no. 2604) of Shaikh al-Albaanee – rahimahullaah):

From Khuraym ibn Faatik al-Asadee –radiyallaahu ‘anhu- that the Prophet said:

<<The people are four, and the deeds are six.

So the people are:

[i] one granted plenty in this world and in the Hereafter, and
[ii] one granted plenty in this world, poor in the Hereafter and,
[iii] one poor in this world, granted plenty in the Hereafter and,
[iv] one wretched in this world and in the Hereafter;

and the deeds are:

[i& ii] The two which are binding, and
[iii & iv] like for like, and
[v] ten times more, and
[vi] seven hundred times more:

[i & ii] So the two which are binding are:

Whoever dies as a Muslim, a Believer, not associating anything with Allaah – then Paradise is binding for him; and whoever dies as a Disbeliever – then the Fire is binding for him; and

[iii & iv] Whoever intends an evil deed but does not do it, and Allaah knows that his heart felt it and desired it, then it is written as a good deeds for him; and whoever intended an evil deed then it is not written against him; and whoever did it then it is written as one, and it is not multiplied for him, and

[v] whoever did a good deed – then ten times its like is written for him, and

[vi] whoever spends something in Allaah’s cause, then it is multiplied for him seven hundred times over.>>

Reported by Ahmad (4/345), Ibn Hibbaan (no. 31), and Ibn Abee Shaybah in his ‘Musnad’ (2/38/2).

-Shaikh al-Albaanee declared its chain of narration to be ‘Saheeh’.

P.S.

This is recently tweeted by Masjid us Sunnah (@Masjidussunnah) on which I include for those who don’t know the late Ustādh Abū ala Dāwūd Burbank (رحمه الله).

Ustādh Abu Idrīs Muammad ((حفظه الله shared an inspirational story on Sincerity giving an example of his teacher Abū ala Dāwūd Burbank (رحم الله رحمة واسعة)

Abū ala; my teacher  was a fitting example in this regard. He never wanted to be in the limelight and never ever conducted a khubah (Friday sermon). He authored a book (Tafsīr Sūrah al-Nabāʾ) and did not know how to publish it, nor did he know much about buying and selling; he did not know where to start. He published his book but was then stuck with several copies. I helped him arranged for his books to be sold in East London. They requested that we come down and complete the transaction. One of them called me and asked if Abū ala could deliver a lecture (as he had never give one in London before), so I relayed this message. He refused and asked me to do it. I said, “How can I speak in front of you and you are my teacher?” They persisted and said,”We have heard you before, now we want to hear him (Abū ala). So, I conveyed their message  back to him and he responded saying, “By Allāh! The fact that they want to hear me, I will not deliver a lecture there!”

Sincerity! And only Allāh knows what in his heart, but we judge, as ‘Umar ibn Khaṭṭāb said, based on the apparent. Look at how he returned to Allāh. He was in the state of irām, making the talbiyah intending to perform ajj.

The Prophet (), “Whoever dies in the state of irām will be resurrected  on the Day of Judgement making the talbiyah.”

When the people will be in a fearful state as if they are intoxicated on that great day, the likes of these individuals in irām will come saying the talbiyah. Abū ala died in a fire and the Prophet () informed us that the one who dies in a fire is a martyr. He was buried in the most sacred place on the face of the earth. Over three million people prayed over him and his wife. After his death, there was not a corner of the world except that they mentioned his name. Even the disbelievers said about him, ‘a renowned and a pious  translator has passed away.’ Everyone mentioned his name when he died although this was something he fled from a while he was alive. Look how Allāh blessed him. It is Allāh who raises a person. We don’t seek knowledge because we want to be raised, but we do so because we desire to become humble servants before Allāh.

Lecture Conducted  at Masjid Daar us Sunnah entitled, “Sincerity is The Path To Salvation” 
29 Jumadá al-thanī 1439 | 17th March 2018
Speaker: Abu Idrīs Muammad

May Allāh grant Abū ala and his wife a highest place in Paradise. Ameen

Imām ‘Abdul ‘Azeez bin Bāz رحمه الله  said:

The Qurān was revealed in order to call (the people) to noble mannerisms & good actions, & the greatest of them is the Tawheed of Allāh, being sincere to Him & singling Him out alone for worship.

Allāh commands us in the Quran: “Flee to Allāh!



فَفِرُّوا إِلَى اللَّهِ ۖ إِنِّي لَكُم مِّنْهُ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ (50)

So flee to Allah. Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner. (Adh-Dhariyat 51: 50)

Allāh commands us in the Quran:

“Flee to Allāh!

This is to flee from:

1. Ignorance to knowledge
2. Disbelief to faith
3. Disobedience to obedience
4. Heedlessness to the remembrance of Allāh

Whoever perfects these things has perfected the entire religion.

Are We Not In This Time?



‘Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ood رضي الله عنه said:

“There will come upon the people  a time where the (people will see the) Sunnah as a bida’h, and the bida’h as a Sunnah, the good as an evil, and the evil as a good.”

[Ibn Wadaah in al-Bida’h 2/160]


Excerpt from A Brief Biography of Ibn Abee Aasim ash-Shaybaanee


Abu ash-Shaykh said: I heard my son narrate from Abu Abdullaah al-Kasaa`ee; I heard ibn Abee Aasim say: When the affair of al-Alawee occurred in Basrah all of my books were lost, so I re-wrote fifty thousand ahaadeeth from memory. I used to go to the greengrocers’ shop and write using the light of his lamp. Then I realised that I had not asked the permission of the owner of the lamp [to sit in its light] so I went to the sea and washed away all I had written and wrote it again.

[Ibn Katheer, ‘al-Bidaayah wan Nihaayah’ (11/96); adh-Dhahabee, ‘Siyar’ (13/430-439); Ibn Hajr, ‘Lisaan al-Meezaan’ (7/298)]

Aqeedah of the Salaf


Imam Al Humaidi (d. 219AH), he was from the teachers of Imam Bukhari, said:

And Emaan is: statement and action, it increases and decreases. Statements do not benefit unless (they are accompanied) by actions. Statements and actions do not benefit unless (they are accompanied by) an intention. Statements, actions and intentions do not benefit unless they are (in accordance) to the Sunnah.

An Encouragement For all of Us Still Learning The Arabic Language Or About to Start: [Ask Allaah For Tawfeeq, Persevere, Do What You Can Slowly & There Is No Race Against Time


Shaikh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said that Imaam As-Sadi (rahimahullaah) told him that it has been stated about Al-Kisaa’iy – an Imaam of the people of Koofah- that he sought after [i.e. attempted to learn] the Knowledge of Arabic grammar but was not able to [accomplish it properly]. Then one day, he found an ant that was carrying some food whilst climbing a wall and kept on falling whenever it climbed up; but it persevered [or persisted] until it overcame that difficulty [or obstacle] and climbed the wall. Al-Kisaa’iy said [i.e. to himself]: This ant persevered [or persisted] until it reached its goal! So he, [also] persevered until he became an Imaam in Arabic grammar.

Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān: Public Protests and Demonstrations are Not the Solution:

Al-ʿAllāmah āli ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān: Public Protests and Demonstrations are Newly Invented Trials and Tribulations:

Al-ʿAllāmah āli ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān -āfiahullāh- said, Our Religion is not a Religion of chaos, our Religion is a Religion of discipline, a Religion of organization and a Religion of tranquility.

And public protests and demonstrations are not from the practices of the Muslims. And the Muslims did not used to be familiar with such activities. And the Religion of Islām is a Religion of peace and a Religion of mercy. There is no chaos in it, nor any confusion, nor incitement of fitan (trials, tribulations). This is the Religion of Islām and it grants the people their rights without the utilization of this method, by means of the Sharīʿah. These public protests and demonstrations are newly invented fitan and they have introduced the spilling of blood and the destruction of wealth. So these affairs are not permissible.
