Grave Worshippers: Altering of names does not change the Reality

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy Shaikh Saleh al Fawzaan states in his explanation of Kitab at-Tawhid under the chapter [From Shirk is to seek Aid and Assistance (after a calamity befalls) from other than Allaah or to Call Upon Others]: "Indeed Shaikh ul-Islam ibn Tamiyyah mentioned in one of his works – or rather, in many of his works – paraphrased as follows; Indeed that which occurs to the grave worshippers in terms of their needs being fulfilled [i.e. the affair they seek at the grave actually occurs for them], then that is not an evidence upon the correctness of their methodology [i.e. the methodology of grave worship], Read more ...

Do not sully your scrolls after Hajj! Advice from Sk Uthaymeen

Do not sully your scrolls after Hajj! Advice from Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-Uthaymeen: Returning to sins after performing the obligatory Hajj is a major setback; because the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: "Whoever performs the obligatory Hajj and does not commit obscenity or sin, he will return - meaning from his sins - like the day his mother gave birth to him." [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 1521] And he (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: "The accepted Hajj has no reward except for paradise." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim] Thus if he purifies and cleans his scrolls with his Hajj then it is foolish to blacken the scroll with his evil actions Read more ...

Falseness of the hadeeth, “Were it not for you, I would not have created the universe”

Falseness of the hadeeth, “Were it not for you (Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), I would not have created the universe”. Praise be to Allah. Many false and fabricated ahaadeeth have been narrated that say similar things. For example: “Were it not for you, I would not have created the universe.” This was quoted by al-Shawkaani in al-Fawaa'id al-Majmoo'ah fi'l-Ahaadeeth al-Mawdoo'ah (p. 326). He said: Al-San'aani said: (it is) mawdoo' (fabricated). Al-Albaani said in al-Silsilah al-Da'eefah (282): (it is) mawdoo'. Another example is the hadeeth narrated by al-Haakim according to which Ibn 'Abbaas said: “Allah revealed to 'Eesa (Jesus, Read more ...

The Creation of Man as Mentioned in the Quran

“Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allah, (the) One. Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks). He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him."” [Quran, 112:1-4] “Verily, the likeness of 'Iesa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: "Be!" - and he was.” [Quran, 3:59] We often overlook how much can be learned from Quranic sources. Islam encompasses several paradigms that benefit mankind in guidance and righteousness, as well as in scientific knowledge and the progression of human physiology. We Read more ...

Islam’s Care for Knowledge

Guest Post by Aadil Mehraj from subulussalaam.org No society cares about knowledge like the Muslim society that is guided by the teachings of its true religion. Islam regards knowledge as obligatory for every individual in the Muslim society, as the Prophet (Peace and Blessing be upon Him) said: "Seeking knowledge is a duty on every Muslim." [A hasan hadith narrated by Ibn Majah] Islam is the religion of knowledge, and knowledge is one of the greatest values that Islam brought to mankind, on the basis of which mankind is regarded as being superior to other creatures. Allah made Adam (Peace be upon Him) the father of mankind superior to the angels Read more ...

Quran : Read it before you burn it!!

The book you are about to read is an English translation of the Scripture that Prophet Muhammad said was revealed to him by God, word for word, in the Arabic language. This Scripture is still in existence and hundreds of thousands of Muslims the world over, including non-Arabic speakers, have it preserved in their memories, just as they have been preserving it for the past fourteen centuries. This book is the Quran. This book is not only still with us in its original form, but the life of the man to whom it was revealed is also recorded in authentic historical records so meticulously that some of the Westerners who studied his life have described him Read more ...

The Origins of Shirk

The Origins of Shirk by Muhammad Nâsir ad-Dîn al-Albânî From that which has been established in the Sharee'ah (prescribed law) is that mankind was - in the beginning - a single nation upon true Tawheed, then Shirk (directing any part or form of worship, or anything else that is solely the right of Allah, to other than Allah) gradually overcame them. The basis for this is the saying of Allah - the Most Blessed, the Most High: "Mankind was one Ummah, then Allah sent prophets bringing good news and warnings." [Surah Al Baqarah 2 :213] Transliteration: Kana alnnasu ommatan wahidatan fabaAAatha Allahu alnnabiyyeena mubashshireena wamunthireena Ibn Read more ...

O son of Adam, I was sick but you did not visit Me….

Sahih Muslim, Book #032, Hadith #6232 : Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: "Verily, Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, would say on the Day of Resurrection: "O son of adam, I was sick but you did not visit Me." He would say: "O my Lord; how could I visit Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds?" Thereupon Allah would say: "Didn't you know that such and such servant of Mine was sick but you did not visit him and were you not aware of this that if you had visited him, you would have found Me by him? O son of adam, I asked food from you but you did not feed Me." He would say: "My Lord, how could I feed Thee whereas Read more ...

“Humanity had been a single community…” – Did Religious Beliefs Evolve Over Time?

“Humanity had been a single community...” – Did Religious Beliefs Evolve Over Time? Sheikh 'Ali Muhammad al-Salabi Source: www.islamtoday.com Allah says: “Humanity had been a single community, and Allah sent (unto them) Prophets as bearers of good tidings and as warners, and revealed therewith the Scripture with the truth that it might judge between people concerning that wherein they differed. And only those unto whom (the Scripture) was given differed concerning it, after clear proofs had come unto them, through hatred one of another. And Allah by His will guided those who believed unto the truth of that concerning which they differed. Allah Read more ...

War Ethics in Islam

History does present a few examples when, in the days of peace, a powerful nation treated its weak neighbors in a graceful manner. The real test of character for such a nation, however, lies in its attitude towards a vanquished nation. Islam has left indelible imprints of its magnanimity both in conditions of war and peace. Swayed by the electrifying effects of the conquest, conquerors usually go berserk in their behavior with the conquered. Possessed with brute authority, they unleash all sorts of atrocities in the occupied territories. Emanating much before Halaku and continuing after Hitler, this is what the war literature of the world teaches and Read more ...
