A person like Firawn

leave a comment »

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said regarding a person who makes the Tawheed of Allaah in his heart but does not make His Tawheed in statement or action:

{{ فإذا من جنس فرعون الذين كان مستيقناً بالحق عالماً به لكنه أصر وعاند وبقي على ما كان عليه من دعوى الربوبية، قال الله تعالى: {وجحدوا بها وأستيقنتها أنفسهم ظلماً وعلواً} [سورة النمل، الآية: 14] }}

“Such a person is from the likes of Fir’awn, who knew the Truth with certainty but persisted stubbornly upon the claim of Lordship for himself. “

«And they denied them (those aayaat) whilst they had certainty in their hearts, (denying them) oppressively and out of haughtiness and pride.» [Soorah an Naml (27) aayah 14]

Ahlus Sunnah follow the Salaf us-Saalih

with one comment

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said [1]:

“The Salaf are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah, and this description cannot be true for anyone else other than them. So how can those who oppose the Sunnah be called Ahlus-Sunnah, this is not possible. How is it possible to say Ahlus-Sunnah are of three differing groups, but we say that they are in agreement? So where is the agreement and consensus?

Rather, Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah are those who hold on to what the Prophet (swallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions were upon, and to the aqeedah of the Salaf, until the Day of Judgement — and they are the Salafees.”

[Source: Sharh ‘Aqeedatil ’Waasitiyyah, 1/123]

Imaam as-Saaboonee said about Ahlus-Sunnah, “They follow the Salafus-Saalih, the Imaams and the Scholars of the Muslims, and they cling to the firm deen that they clung to and to the clear truth. And they hate Ahul-Bid’ah (the People of Innovation) who innovate into the Deen that which is not from it. They do not love them and they do not keep company with them. They do not listen to their sayings, nor sit with them, nor argue with them about the Deen, nor debate with them. Rather, they protect their ears from hearing their futility; things, which if they pass through the ears and settle in the hearts, will cause harm and cause doubts and wicked ideas to appear. And concerning this Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, sent down:

“And when you see people engaged in vain discourse about Our Signs, then turn away from them unless they turn to a different theme.” [Soorah al-An’aam (6):68] “

[1] The Shaykh said this in reply to the claim that Ahlus-Sunnah are three groups: the Salafees, the Ash’arees and the Maatooreedees, and explained clearly that whoever says so, is indeed mistaken. He said, that the Ash’arees and the Maatooreede’s are not considered from Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah in the matter concerning the Names and Attributes of Allaah). And then said that the Salafis are the Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah

Time is like a sword – Either you strike it, or it will strike you!

leave a comment »

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said on the night of  the 27th of Rabee’ul-Awwal 1417 H (Sunday) – which corresponds to the 10th of August 1996 CE:

I advise you all to safeguard your time and to occupy yourselves in that which is beneficial. You should know that time is more precious than wealth, as Allaah – the Most Blessed, the Most High – said:

“Until when death comes to him, he says: O my Lord! Give me respite so that I may then do righteous actions.” [Soorah al-Baqarah 2:333].

Time is such that when it departs it does not return, whereas wealth, when it departs, then it is possible to replace it. So time is of the utmost importance. This is why I advise you to safeguard your time, and to occupy yourselves in that which benefits. Keep away from qeela wa qaal (gossiping) – that so and so said such and such about this and that person – because the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic narration: Indeed Allaah hates qeela wa qaal (gossip mongering), asking too many questions, and wasting one’s wealth.[Muslim (no.1715)]

Unfortunately, many of the youths – after returning to the correct path, and uniting their hearts and unifying their word – have become disunited and fragmented into many factions, and this is due to the whisperings of Shaytaan amongst them and the disuniting of their word.

So I advise the brothers to utilise your time in beneficial matters, and to keep away from qeela wa qaal. Indeed, time is like a sword; either you strike it, or it will strike you!
