The Faithful Slaves Of Allaah (Sura Furqaan 25: 63-77)



And the slaves of the Most Beneficent (Allaah) are those who walk on the earth in humility and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild words of gentleness.  

And those who spend the night before their Lord, prostrate and standing.  

And those who say: "Our Lord! Avert from us the torment of Hell. Verily! Its torment is ever an inseparable, permanent punishment.  

Evil indeed it (Hell) is as an abode and as a place to dwell.  

And those, who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor niggardly, but hold a medium (way) between those (extremes).  

And those who invoke not any other ilaah (god) along with Allaah, nor kill such life as Allaah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.  

The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;   Except those who repent and believe (in Islaamic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds, for those, Allaah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allıh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  

Except those who repent and believe (in Islaamic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds, for those, Allaah will change their sins into good deeds, and Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  

And those who do not witness falsehood, and if they pass by some evil play or evil talk, they pass by it with dignity.  

And those who, when they are reminded of the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of their Lord, fall not deaf and blind thereat.  

And those who say: "Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqın" (pious).  

Those will be rewarded with the highest place (in Paradise) because of their patience. Therein they shall be met with greetings and the word of peace and respect.  

Abiding therein; excellent it is as an abode, and as a place to dwell.  

Say (O Muhammad to the disbelievers): "My Lord pays attention to you only because of your invocation to Him. But now you have indeed denied (Him). So the torment will be yours for ever (inseparable permanent punishment).

We ask Allaah to grant us Tawfeeq to be from them.

Allaah(subhaanah) said:

Set not up with Allaah any other ilaah (god), (O man)! This verse is addressed to Prophet Muhammad, but its implication is general to all mankind), or you will sit down reproved, forsaken (in the Hell-fire).

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour.

And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small."

Your Lord knows best what is in your inner-selves. If you are righteous, then, verily, He is Ever Most Forgiving to those who turn unto Him again and again in obedience, and in repentance.

And give to the kindred his due and to the Mis'keen (poor) and to the wayfarer. But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayaaateen (devils), and the Shaitaan (Devil  Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord.

And if you (O Muhammad) turn away from them (kindred, poor, wayfarer, etc. whom We have ordered you to give their rights, but if you have no money at the time they ask you for it) and you are awaiting a mercy from your Lord for which you hope, then, speak unto them a soft kind word (i.e. Allaah will give me and I shall give you).

And let not your hand be tied (like a miser) to your neck, nor stretch it forth to its utmost reach (like a spendthrift), so that you become blameworthy and in severe poverty.

Truly, your Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills and straitens (for whom He wills). Verily, He is Ever All-Knower, All-Seer of His slaves.

And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Surely, the killing of them is a great sin.

And come not near to the unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Faahishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allaah forgives him).

And do not kill anyone which Allaah has forbidden, except for a just cause. And whoever is killed (intentionally with hostility and oppression and not by mistake), We have given his heir the authority [(to demand Qisaas, Law of Equality in punishment or to forgive, or to take Diya (blood money)]. But let him not exceed limits in the matter of taking life (i.e he should not kill except the killer only). Verily, he is helped (by the Islaamic law).

And come not near to the orphan's property except to improve it, until he attains the age of full strength. And fulfil (every) covenant. Verily! the covenant, will be questioned about.

And give full measure when you measure, and weigh with a balance that is straight. That is good (advantageous) and better in the end.

And follow not (O man i.e., say not, or do not or witness not, etc.) that of which you have no knowledge (e.g. one's saying: "I have seen," while in fact he has not seen, or "I have heard," while he has not heard). Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those you will be questioned (by Allaah).

And walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance. Verily, you can neither rend nor penetrate the earth, nor can you attain a stature like the mountains in height.

All the bad aspects of these (the above mentioned things) are hateful to your Lord.

Qur'aan (17:22-38)

Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) said:

That is; being proud, haughty, arrogant and exalting oneself above the truth and the creation.  Indeed, this action of yours will neither rend nor penetrate the earth nor can you attain a stature like the mountains in height through your pride; rather you are debased in the Sight of Allaah and in the sight of the creation, hated and detested.

Indeed, you have acquired the most evil and despicable of qualities, whilst not being able to achieve what you desire.

Having Good Suspicion For The Believers, Especially For THe ULema, THe Tullaabul Ilm And The Du-aat Of Salafiyyah



Allaah (subhaanahu-wata-aalaa) said:

''O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins''. 49:12

Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) said:

Allaah (Ta-aalaa) has forbidden much evil (sinful) suspicion towards the believers, because, indeed some suspicions are sin

And that is like the suspicion devoid of reality and factual evidence, and like the suspicion accompanied by much forbidden speech and action.  For indeed, the settlement of evil suspicion in the heart does not confine the one (in whose heart is that evil suspicion) only to that; rather, he does not stop at that until he utters and does that which is not permissible/befitting.

Allaah (subhaanah) said:

''There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allaah's Cause), or Ma'roof (Islaamic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allaah has ordained), or conciliation between mankind''4:114

Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) said:

That is: there is no good in most of their private conversations and speech with the people.  And if there is no good in that, then there will be no benefit in it; such as excessive permissible speech or speech that is evil and completely harmful; such as all types of haraam speech.

Then He (subhaanah) made an exception, saying: ''Save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allaah's Cause)''; that is: through wealth, knowledge or any means of benefit.  And included in this are the lesser acts of worship, such as Tasbeeh (the utterance of Subhaanallaah) and Tahmeed (the utterance of Alhamdulil-laah) and its like, as the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

''Indeed, every Tasbeeh (utterance of Subhaanallaah) is sadaqah, and every Takbeer (utterance of Allaahu Akbar) is Sadaqah, and every Tahleel (utterance of Laa-ilaaha-ilal-lah) is Sadaqah, and Enjoining Good is Sadaqah, and Forbidding Evil is Sadaqah, and even when one of you has sexual intercourse (with his wife), there is  Sadaqah in that'' (Reported by Muslim)

He (subhaanah) then said: ''Or (one) who orders Maruf''; and that is perfection in worship and obedience, and everything that is known in the sharee-ah of goodness, and everything whose goodness is known by way of sound intellect.  

And whenever enjoining good is mentioned without forbidding evil being mentioned alongside it, then Forbidding Evil is also included.  That is because abandonment of the prohibited things is from Maruf, and good action cannot be complete except with abandonment of evil.  And with regards to (dealings) with companions/associates, then Maruf is explained to mean commanding (good) actions, and Munkar is explained to mean abandonment of prohibitions.

Then Allaah (subhaanallaah) said:

''Or (the one who enjoins) conciliation between mankind''

Conciliation does not occur except between those engaged in dispute and argumentation.  And it may not be possible to prevent the evil and splitting that necessarily (arises) from dispute, argumentation and rage towards one another.  For that reason the Legislator (Allaah-subhaanah) has directed the people towards conciliation with regards to (affairs) of Blood (killing), wealth and honour; rather even in the (affair) of the Deen, as Allaah (subhaanah) said:

''Hold on all of you to the Rope of Allaah and do not be divided''

And Allaah (subhaanah) said:

''And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allaah; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly''49:9

And Allaah (subhaanah) said:

''Conciliation is good''

The one who hastens towards making conciliation between the people is better than the one devoted to (optional) salaah, fasting and the giving of sadaqah.  And Allaah (subhaanah) will difinately set right the work and eagerness of the one (who hastens towards making conciliation between the people); just as Allaah neither set right the work of the one who sows corruption nor would (such a person) completely reach what he aims at, as Allaah said:

''Verily, Allaah does not set right the work of Al-Mufsidoon (the evil-doers, corrupts, etc.)'' 10:81

Reconciliation And Rectification



Allaah (Ta-aalaa) said:

''But he who fears from a testator some unjust act or wrong-doing, and thereupon he makes PEACE BETWEEN THE PARTIES concerned, there shall be no sin on him. Certainly, Allıh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful''. 2:182

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''And make not Allıh's (Name) an excuse in your oaths against your doing good and acting piously, and MAKING PEACE AMONG MANKIND.  And Allıh is All-Hearer, All-Knower (i.e. do not swear much and if you have sworn against doing something good then give an expiation for the oath and do good)''2:224

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''If you fear a breach between them twain (the man and his wife), appoint (two) arbitrators, one from his family and the other from her's; if they both wish for PEACE, Allaah will cause their RECONCILIATION.   Indeed Allaah is Ever All Knower, Well Acquainted with all things''. 4:35

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''And if a woman fears cruelty or desertion on her husband's part, there is no sin on them both if they MAKE TERMS OF PEACE BETWEEN THEMSELVES; and MAKING PEACE IS BETTER''. 4:128

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allıh's Cause), or Ma'rıf (Islımic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allıh has ordained), OR CONCILIATION BETWEEN MANKIND, and he who does this, seeking the good Pleasure of Allıh, We shall give him a great reward''.4:114

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''So fear Allıh and adjust all MATTERS OF DIFFERENCE AMONG YOU'' 8:1

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islımic religion). So make RECONCILIATION between your brothers'' 49:10

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then MAKE PEACE between them both, but if one of them rebels against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which rebels till it complies with the Command of Allıh; then if it complies, then make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allıh loves those who are equitable''.49:9

And He (Ta-aalaa) said:

''The recompense for an evil is an evil like thereof, but whoever FORGIVES AND MAKES RECONCILIATION, his reward is due from Allıh. Verily, He likes not the Zaalimoon (oppressors, polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)''42:40

Conciliation



Abee Dardaa (radiyallaahu-anhu) said that the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ''Shall I not inform you of something more excellent in degree than fasting, prayer and sadaqah? The people replied: Certainly, Prophet of Allah! He said: It is putting things right between people, for indeed spoiling it (i.e. that which is to be put right between the people) is the shaver (destruction)''.  (Hadith collected by Imaam Abu Dawood and declared saheeh by Imaam Al Albaanee)

Making conciliation between the people is from the greatest acts of seeking nearness and obedience to Allaah (subhaanah).  It is an obligation, and is carried out so that the society is (protected) from corruption and the severing of relationships between the people.  It is carried out so that love does not depart between the people, and is replaced with enmity, hatred, lies (against one another), vain speech, turmoil and chaos.

Making conciliation (between the people) is a means to having (one's) sins forgiven and a means to attaining Allaah's love.  

When the people of truth are at difference and have hatred for one another, their hearts are hardened, and (they) become negligent of the rights (due to one another).  Love departs and corruption spreads and their enemies become dominant and the hypocrites rejoice.  

Conciliation between the people is from Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil.  He (subhaanah) said:  

''And your Lord would never destroy the towns wrongfully, while their people were right-doers''11:117

Conciliation between the people is from Co-operating upon Bir and Taqwah.  He (subhaanah) said:  

''Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in Sin and Transgression. And fear Allaah'' 5:2

Conciliation between the people is a means to putting an end to splitting, argumentation, corruption, sins and transgression.  He (subhaanah) said:  

''And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order''7:56

And He (subhaanah) said about Musaa (alayhis-salaam):  

''And Moosaa (Moses) said to his brother Haaroon (Aaron): "Replace me among my people, act in a right way and follow not the way of the Mufsidoon (mischief-makers).''7:142

And Allaah (subhaanah) related upon the tongue of Shu-aib (alayhis-salaam):  

''He (Shu-aib) said: ''O my people! Tell me; if I have a clear evidence from my Lord, and He has given me a good sustenance from Himself (shall I corrupt it by mixing it with the unlawfully earned money). I wish not, in contradiction to you, to do that which I forbid you. I only desire reform so far as I am able, to the best of my power. And my guidance cannot come except from Allaah, in Him I trust and unto Him I repent.''11:88

The Destruction Of Those Ungrateful Ones, Who Were Intoxicated By Wealth And The Glitter Of The Life Of This World



Allaah said:

Verily, Qaaroon (Korah) was of Moosaa's (Moses) people, but he behaved arrogantly towards them.  And We gave him of the treasures, that of which the keys would have been a burden to a body of strong men. When his people said to him: "Do not be glad (with ungratefulness to Allaah's Favours). Verily! Allaah likes not those who are glad (with ungratefulness to Allaah's Favours).

But seek, with that (wealth) which Allaah has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allıh has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allaah likes not the Mufsidoon (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts).

He said: "This has been given to me only because of knowledge I possess." Did he not know that Allaah had destroyed before him generations, men who were stronger than him in might and greater in the amount (of riches) they had collected. But the Mujrimoon (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, etc.) will not be questioned of their sins (because Allaah knows them well, so they will be punished without account).

So he went forth before his people in his pomp. Those who were desirous of the life of the world, said: "Ah, would that we had the like of what Qaaroon (Korah) has been given? Verily! He is the owner of a great fortune."

But those who had been given (religious) knowledge said: "Woe to you! The Reward of Allaah (in the Hereafter) is better for those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and this none shall attain except those who are patient (in following the truth)."

So We caused the earth to swallow him and his dwelling place. Then he had no group or party to help him against Allaah, nor was he one of those who could save themselves.

And those who had desired (for a position like) his position the day before, began to say: "Know you not that it is Allaah Who enlarges the provision or restricts it to whomsoever He pleases of His slaves. Had it not been that Allıh was Gracious to us, He could have caused the earth to swallow us up (also)! Know you not that the disbelievers will never be successful.

That home of the Hereafter (i.e. Paradise), We shall assign to those who rebel not against the truth with pride and oppression in the land nor do mischief by committing crimes. And the good end is for the Muttaqın (the pious)

Whosoever brings good (Islaamic Monotheism along with righteous deeds), he shall have the better thereof, and whosoever brings evil (polytheism along with evil deeds) then, those who do evil deeds will only be requited for what they used to do. (Qur'aan 28:76-84)

A Reminder To The Salafi Students Of Knowledge And Callers, That They Have To Exercise Patience upon Receiving the Harmful Statements, Whilst Being Steadfast Upon The Worship Of Allaah



Allaah (subhuman) said:

''Be patient (O Muhammad) of what they say, and remember Our slave Daawood, endured with power.  Verily, he was ever oft-returning''38:17

Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) said:

''Be Patient Of What They Say''....just as the Messengers before you did exercise patience; for indeed, the statements of the (opponents, disbelievers, enemies) cannot harm anything of the truth.  They cannot harm you in anything,rather they only harm themselves.  

''And Remember Our Slave Daawood, Endured With Power.  Verily, He Was Ever Oft-Returning''

After He (subhaanah) commanded His Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) to exercise patience with his people, He (subhaanah) (also) commanded him to seek help in patience upon worshipping Allaah (alone), and then made a mention of the situation of the worshippers, just as He stated in another ayah:

''So bear patiently (O Muhammad) what they say, and Glorify the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun, and before its setting''20:130

And amongst the greatest of worshippers was the Prophet of Allaah Dawood (alayhis-salaam).  ''Endured with power'', that is:(having) great physical strength and great strength at heart in worshiping Allaah.  

''Verily he (Daawood) was ever oft-returning'', that is: Returning to Him (subhaanah) in all affairs, with inaabah (turning repentantly), love, persevering commitment, fear, hope, and with much humility and supplication, and returning to Him (subhaanah) with abstention and sincere repentance when he committed mistakes.

If You Were To Put Your Trust In Allaah, Then You Would Be Provided For As The Birds Are



Umar (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) saying: ''If you were to put your trust in Allaah in the manner that He deserves, then you would be provided (with sustenance), as the birds are (provided for).  They go out early in the day with empty stomachs and return at the end of the day with full (stomachs)''.  

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) commented on this hadith saying:

With regards to his (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) statement: ''In The Manner He (subhaanah) Deserves (To be trusted)'', that is: true reliance in Allaah, (and) complete dependence upon Allaah in seeking your provision and other than that.  ''Then You Would Be Provided With (Sustenance), As The Birds Are (Provided For)''

The bird's sustenance is with Allaah.  The birds do not have an owner, so they fly in the air and set out early in day in search of Allaah's Provision.  ''They go out early in the day with empty stomachs'', that is: in the early hours of the day with hunger and empty stomachs, as Allaah (subhaanah) said:

''But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these mentioned meats), then surely, Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.''(5:3) And severe hunger is starvation.

''They go out early in the day with empty stomachs'', that is: with nothing in their stomachs.  However, they put their trust in their Lord (Azza-Wa-Jal), and ''return at the end of the day with full stomach''.  They return in the latter part of the day with stomachs filled with Allaah's Provision.

SOURCE: 'Ash-Sharhul Mamool Li-Imtithaal Ar-Rasool' of Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah)

No:559), Ibn Hibbaan (No:2548), Haakim (4/318) who said that its isnaad is saheeh and Imaam Dhahabee attested to that.   Ahmad  Shaakir attested to that in his Tahqeeq of Al-Musnad (1/243) and Al-Baanee in As-Saheehah (No:310).

If You Were To Put Your Trust In Allaah, Then You Would Be Provided For As The Birds Are



So there are proofs in this (hadith) with regards to some affairs.  

Firstly:it is incumbent upon the person to have true dependence upon Allaah.

Secondly: Indeed, there is no living creature on the earth, except that its provision is due from Allaah.  And even the bird in the sky, none holds it up in the sky besides Allaah, and none provides for it besides Allaah.  

Every creature on the earth, be it as tiny as an atom or huge like an elephant and its likes, indeed its provision is due from Allaah, as Allaah (Ta-aalaa) said:

''And no (moving) living creature is there on earth but its provision is due from Allaah. And He knows its dwelling place and its deposit (in the uterus, grave, etc.)'' 11:6  

And indeed the clearly misguided one is he who harbours suspicion towards his Lord.  He says, ''Do not bear many children, for you will not have enough provision''.  By the Lord of the Throne they have lied, for Allaah will give you more provison if you have more children; because there is not a living creature on the earth except that its provision is due from Allaah.  The provision for your children and (your) little ones is due from Allaah.  He (Allaah) is The One Who opens the doors of provision for you, in order that you may spend on them (your children).

However, many people harbour an evil suspicion towards Allaah and are dependent on materialistic ideas.   They do not look at (the affairs) with far sightedness and in accordance with Allaah's Absolute Ability, and that He (subhaanah) is The One Who provides even if the children are many.  The more children you have, the more provision you will be given.  This is the correct (belief/statement).  

And in this is evidence, that the one who truely relies on Allaah will  (also) utilise the means (to attaining what he seeks after).  And the misguided one is he who says, "I will not utilize the means and I am one who relies on Allaah''.  This is not correct.

The one, who has true reliance in Allah is he who utilizes the means whilst depending on Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal).  That is why he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

"Then you would be provided (with sustenance), as the birds are (provided for).  They go out early in the day with empty stomachs"

So (the bird) goes out in search of sustenance and does not stay in its nest; rather it sets out early in search of sustenance.

If You Were To Put Your Trust In Allaah, Then You Would Be Provided For As The Birds Are



So after truly depending on Allaah, you must (also) take the means that Allaah has provided in seeking permissible sustenance, through agriculture, trade, work and through any means of seeking sustenance.  Seek sustenance whilst being dependant upon Allaah and Allaah will make it easy for you to obtain it.

And from the benefits of this hadith is that: the birds and other than them of Allaah's creation do know Allaah, as Allaah (subhaanah) said:

"The seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein, glorify Him and there is not a thing but glorifies His Praise" ; that is: there is not a thing except that it glorifies Allaah, " But you understand not their glorification".

"See you not that to Allaah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and Ad-Dawaab (moving living creatures, beasts, etc.), and many of mankind? But there are many (men) on whom the punishment is justified. And whomsoever Allaah disgraces, none can honour him. Verily! Allaah does what He wills".

The birds do know their Lord (Azza-Wa-Jal).  The bird seeks after the provision Allaah has allocated for it, through a natural disposition that guides it to what is beneficial for it, and returns to its nest in the early part of the evening with a full stomach.  This is what it does everyday.  Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal) provides it with sustenance and makes it easy for it to obtain it.  And look at the Wisdom of Allaah! How the birds set off early to a far away place and are guided back to their place of (residence) without failing to find it; because Allaah gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright.

Etiquette Of Entry Into The Masjid



Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) said:

The one entering the mosque should proceed with his right foot, and then says:

'Bismillaahi Allaahumma Salli-Wa-Sallim Alaa Muhammad.  Allaahumma Ighfir-lee Dzo-noo-bee, Waf-tah-lee abwaaba rahmatika'(Reported by Muslim, No:713)

Then he should pre-occupy himself with Prayer, Remembrance of Allaah, Recitation of the Qur'aan and Knowledge.  He either teaches or learns, or listens.  He gives advice to those in the mosque and directs them to that which contains good.  And he does not pre-occupy himself with other than that, being engrossed in the affairs of the dunyaah, for the Mosques have not been built, except for seeking nearness to Allaah, whilst the other places are for exploring and pre-occupation with the (affairs) of the Dunyaah

Reflection



Allaah (subhaanah) said:

So I swear by Mawaaqi (setting or the mansions, etc.) of the stars (they traverse).  And verily, that is indeed a great oath, if you but know. That (this) is indeed an honourable recital (the Noble Qur'aan).  In a Book well-guarded (with Allaah in the heaven i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfooz). Which (that Book with Allıh) none can touch but the purified (i.e. the angels). A Revelation (this Qur'aan) from the Lord of the 'Alameen (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

Is it such a talk (this Qur'an) that you (disbelievers) deny? And instead (of thanking Allaah) for the provision He gives you, on the contrary, you deny Him (by disbelief)! Then why do you not (intervene) when (the soul of a dying person) reaches the throat? And you at the moment are looking on, But We (i.e. Our angels who take the soul) are nearer to him than you, but you see not, Then why do you not, if you are exempt from the reckoning and recompense (punishment, etc.) Bring back the soul (to its body), if you are truthful?

Then, if he (the dying person) be of the Muqarraboon (those brought near to Allaah), (There is for him) rest and provision, and a Garden of delights (Paradise). And if he (the dying person) be of those on the Right Hand, Then there is safety and peace (from the Punishment of Allıh) for (you as you are from) those on the Right Hand.

But if he (the dying person) be of the denying (of the Resurrection), the erring (away from the Right Path of Islaamic Monotheism), Then for him is entertainment with boiling water. And burning in Hell-fire.

Verily, this! This is an absolute Truth with certainty. So glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great. 56:75-96

Part Of  The Perfection Of A Person's Islaam Is Leaving That Which Is Of No Concern To Him



On the authority of Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu-anhu) who said:  The Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said, ''Part of the perfection of a person's Islaam is his leaving that which is of no concern to him'' (Hassan Hadith. Reported by Imaam Tirmidhi and others)

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh al Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said:

From the benefits of this narration are:

1. Indeed, Islaam gathers all the excellent qualities.  Our Sheikh Abdur Rahmaan Bin Sa'di (rahimahullaah) has written a treatise on this topic (titled): 'The Excellence of The Religion Of Islaam'.  Likewise, Sheikh Abdul Azeez Bin Muhammad Bin Sulaymaan (rahimahullaah) has written a treatise on this topic.

And all the excellent qualities of Islaam are gathered upon two statements.  Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal) said:

''Verily, Allaah enjoins Al Adl (i.e. justice and worshipping none but Allaah Alone) and Al-Ihsaan [i.e. to be patient in performing your duties to Allaah, totally for Allaah's sake and in accordance with the Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet in a perfect manner.'' 16:90

2. Part of the perfection of (a Person's) Islaam is his leaving what is of no importance to him and that which has no connection to his affairs and needs.

3. One cannot perfect his Islaam through preoccupying himself with what does not concern him.  This happens to many people, so you either find him speaking about affairs that do not concern him, or a person asks him about affairs that do not concern him and he enters into what does not concern him.  This leads to weakening of (one's Islaam).  

4. Indeed, it is incumbent upon the person to seek after the excellent qualities of Islaam, in order to abandon what does not concern him and be at ease.  He will exhaust himself if he busies himself with affairs that are neither important nor of concern to him.  

And an obscurity occurs on this point here, and that is: Does the slave's abandonment of that which does not concern him (mean) that he is to abandon Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil?

The Answer:

No, because Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil is something that concerns the person, as Allaah (Azza-Wa-Jal) said:

''Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good and forbidding Al-Munkar'' 3:104

So if you see a person upon evil, you should say to him, ''O brother! This is a munkar. It is not permissible''.  The person who witnesses that have no right to say, "This does not concern me", and it will not be accepted were you to say that; because enjoining good and forbidding evil concerns whole ummah.

And there is (also) what is connected to one's the family, his sons and daughters (of enjoining good and forbidding evil).  It is the concern of the shepherd of the house to guide them towards good and command them with it, and to warn them against evil and prohibit them from that.  He (Azza-Wa-Jal) said:

"O you who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones" 66:6

Imaam Sa'di (rahimahullaah) said:
                                
The Good Doer busies himself with what concerns him from the obligations and abandons disobedience and evil deeds.  He (abandons) that which does not befit him of the detested affairs, and those permissible things that bring him no benefit, rather he loses goodness by indulging in such affairs.  So his (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) statement: "Part of the perfection of a person's Islaam is his leaving that which is of no concern to him" has a more general meaning than what we have mentioned.          

And the general meaning of this hadith is:

The one who does not abandon that which does not concern him will harm his Islaam.  That is why all the forbidden statements and actions are either prohibited with the verdict of "Haraam" or with a prohibition (indicating the abhorrence or repugnance of such statements and actions)

Exalting Worldly Possessions And Status Was One Of The Characteristics Of The People Of The Era Of Pre-Islaamic Ignorance
  


Imaam Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhaab (rahimahullaah) stated in Masaa-ilil Jaahiliyyah:  

[The Worldly Life Was Exalted In Their Hearts, As He (Ta-aalaa) said (that they said): ''Why Is Not This Qur'aan Sent Down To Some Great Man Of The Two Towns'' 43:31]

Sheikh Saaleh al Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah) commented, saying:

From the affairs of the Pre-Islaamic Era of Ignorance was that the worldly life was exalted in their hearts.  So they regarded the one who possessed (the things of the worldly life) to be honourable and the one who was not in possession of the (things of the worldly life) to be of lowly (status) and despised.  

And even in the affair of Risaalah (Messengership), which is Allaah's (absolute choice), they saw that it should be given to the rich people and not the poor people.  And they said, "Allaah found (none), except an orphan of Abu Taalib to send (as a Messenger)? They were referring to Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)]

"And they say: "Why is not this Qurıaan sent down to some great man of the two towns'' 43:31

The two towns are Makkah and Madina.  And this (great man) in Makkah is Waleed Bin Mugheerah or Habeeb Bin Amr Ath-thaqafee, and it is said that the great man in Taa'if is Urwa Bin Mas'ood.  The (people of the era of Pre-Islaamic Ignorance) said, if the Message was given to one of these two great men, it would have been befitting to be (regarded) a Message, but it does not befit them to think that it is given to a poor orphan (Muhammad-sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).  

He (Ta-aalaa) said:

"Is it they who would portion out the mercy of your Lord'' 43:32

That is: they interfered in Allaah's Actions (i.e. in what Allaah decrees and carries out).  They wanted to portion out Allaah's Mercy and did not testify to that which Allaah portioned out (of His Mercy), whilst ''Allaah knows best with whom to place his message''6:124

Reflection



Allaah (subhaanah) said:

Has there not been over man a period of time, when he was nothing to be mentioned?   Verily, We have created man from Nutfah drops of mixed semen (discharge of man and woman), in order to try him, so We made him hearer, seer.   Verily, We showed him the way, whether he be grateful or ungrateful.  

Verily, We have prepared for the disbelievers iron chains, iron collars, and a blazing Fire.   Verily, the Abraar (pious, who fear Allaah and avoid evil), shall drink a cup (of wine) mixed with water from a spring in Paradise called Kaafoor.  A spring wherefrom the slaves of Allaah will drink, causing it to gush forth abundantly.

They (are those who) fulfill (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose evil will be wide-spreading.   And they give food, inspite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to Miskin (poor), the orphan, and the captive,  (Saying): "We feed you seeking Allaah's Countenance only. We wish for no reward, nor thanks from you.  "Verily, We fear from our Lord a Day, hard and distressful, that will make the faces look horrible (from extreme dislikeness to it)." So Allaah saved them from the evil of that Day, and gave them Nadratan (a light of beauty) and joy.  

And their recompense shall be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient.  Reclining therein on raised thrones, they will see there neither the excessive heat of the sun, nor the excessive bitter cold, (as in Paradise there is no sun and no moon).   And the shade thereof is close upon them, and the bunches of fruit thereof will hang low within their reach.   And amongst them will be passed round vessels of silver and cups of crystal,    Crystal-clear, made of silver. They will determine the measure thereof according to their wishes.

And they will be given to drink there a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabeel (ginger, etc.),  A spring there, called Salsabeel.   And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think them scattered pearls.  And when you look there (in Paradise), you will see a delight (that cannot be imagined), and a great dominion.  Their garments will be of fine green silk, and gold embroidery. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a pure drink.    (And it will be said to them): "Verily, this is a reward for you, and your endeavour has been accepted."

Verily! It is We Who have sent down the Qur'aan to you (O Muhammad) by stages.  Therefore be patient (O Muhammad) and submit to the Command of your Lord (Allaah, by doing your duty to Him and by conveying His Message to mankind), and obey neither a sinner nor a disbeliever among them.  

And remember the Name of your Lord every morning and afternoon [i.e. offering of the Morning (Fajr), Zuhr, and 'Asr prayers].   And during night, prostrate yourself to Him (i.e. the offering of Maghrib and 'Ishaa' prayers), and glorify Him a long night through (i.e. Tahajjud prayer).

Verily! These (disbelievers) love the present life of this world, and put behind them a heavy Day (that will be hard). It is We Who created them, and We have made them of strong built. And when We will, We can replace them with others like them with a complete replacement.

Verily! This (Verses of the Qur'aan) is an admonition, so whosoever wills, let him take a Path to his Lord (Allaah).   But you cannot will, unless Allaah wills. Verily, Allaah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise. He will admit to His Mercy whom He will and as for the Zaalimoon, (polytheists, wrong-doers, etc.) He has prepared a painful torment.

[Qur'aan: 76:1-31]

One's Engagement In Forbidden Affairs Is Either Due To Him Possessing Little Knowledge Or Being Weak In His Discernment



The slave commits not what has been made forbidden for him, except in two ways:

Firstly: The slave's evil suspicion of his Lord; that had he obeyed and gave preference to his (Lord); He would not have given him something better from the permissible things.

Secondly:  The slave's awareness of that (evil), and that whoever leaves something for the Sake of Allaah, He (subhaanah) will replace it with something better.  However, his lusts overwhelm his patience and his desires overwhelm his intellect.

The first (instance) is due to a weakness in one's knowledge and the second (instance) is due to a weakness in one's intelligence and discernment.

How Often Do We Advice Our Children With The Advice Of Luqmaan



And (remember) when Luqmaan said to his son when he was advising him: "O my son! Join not in worship others with Allaah. Verily! Joining others in worship with Allaah is a great Zulm (wrong) indeed.

And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and his weaning is in two years give thanks to Me and to your parents, unto Me is the final destination.

But if they (both) strive with you to make you join in worship with Me others that of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not, but behave with them in the world kindly, and follow the path of him who turns to Me in repentance and in obedience. Then to Me will be your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do.

"O my son! If it be (anything) equal to the weight of a grain of mustard seed, and though it be in a rock, or in the heavens or in the earth, Allaah will bring it forth. Verily, Allaah is Subtle (in bringing out that grain), Well Aware (of its place).

"O my son! Aqimis-Salaat (perform As-Salaat), enjoin (people) for Al-Ma'ruuf (Islaamic Monotheism and all that is good), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief in the Oneness of Allaah, polytheism of all kinds and all that is evil and bad), and bear with patience whatever befall you. Verily! These are some of the important commandments ordered by Allaah with no exemption.

"And turn not your face away from men with pride, nor walk in insolence through the earth. Verily, Allaah likes not each arrogant boaster.

"And be moderate (or show no insolence) in your walking, and lower your voice. Verily, the harshest of all voices is the voice (braying) of the ass."
