Salafi Manhaj

What is Salafi Manhaj?

The Salafi Manhaj - Our Da'wah, Our Call 1.  We call, first and foremost, to the worship of Allaah alone, without associating partners with Him. This was the starting point of the call of the Messengers (alayhumus salaam), just as Allaah has stated: "We sent a messenger to every nation proclaiming: Worship Allaah alone and leave the worship of the false deities." So this call to the worship of Allaah alone is coupled with the negation of the worship of anything besides Him. 2.  We believe that our Religion calls to many essentials, so we call to the most essential affair, followed by that which is next in importance, in accordance to the Quranic Read more ...

A Composed Dialogue on Tawheed

A man by the name of Abdullah (Abdullah literally means the slave/worshipper of Allah) met a man named Abd-un-Nabi (The slave/worshipper of the Prophet) and felt apprehension of this name, thinking, "How can someone make himself the slave and worshipper of someone other than Allah?!" Abdullah thus addressed Abd-un-Nabi, saying: "Do you worship solmeone other than Allah?" Abd-un-Nabi replied. "No! I do not worship anyone other than Allah. I am a Muslim and I worship Allah alone." Abdullah: Then why does your name resemble some Christians names, like Abd-ul-Maseeh (The slave/worshipper of the Messiah, i.e. Jesus. This is a common name among Arab Christians). Read more ...

Soul of a Believer

Al-Baraa' ibn 'Aazib stated that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: "When a believer is leaving this world and entering the next, angels with faces shining brightly like the sun descend from the heavens carrying a shroud and embalming fragrance from Paradise, and [then they] sit down within sight-range. The Angel of Death then approaches, sits by his head and says, 'O good soul, come out to Allah's forgiveness and pleasure.' It will then come out like a flowing drop of water from a water-skin, and he will catch it. But, within the blinking of an eye after he catches it, they will take it and put it in the shroud and fragrance. There will Read more ...

Do they wait until the Angels come to them?

The Tafseer of Imaam As-Sa’dee: "Do they wait until the angels come to them...." [Surah An'am 6:158] Translation: Abu Shu’ayb Omar As-Soomaalee Allah the most high says, "Do they wait until the Angels come to them, or that your Lord should come, or that some of the signs of your Lord should come. That day, in which some of the signs of your Lord will come, no good will it do a person to believe then, if he wasn’t one who believed before, or gained good with their belief Say: “Wait, we too are waiting”." [Surah An'am 6:158] Imaam As-Sa’dee said: He the most high says: Do they wait, those who are continuant in their oppression and stubbornness Read more ...

Want to have a good Death? Live a good Life!

O mankind, have Taqwa of Allah the Exalted and prepare for the meeting with your Lord, with the preparation of the righteous. Verily the state of man is as his Lord the Exalted said: "O man! Verily, you are returning towards your Lord with your deeds and actions (good or bad), a sure returning, so you will meet Him." [Surah Al-'Inshiqaq, 84:6] O Muslims, verily the person does not know where he will die. And he does not know when he will die. As Allah the Exalted said: "No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things)." [Surah Luqman, 31: 34] If we Read more ...

Do you see your Sins as a Fly or a Mountain?

'Abdullah b. Mas'ud – Allah be pleased with him – said: "The believer sees his sins as if he is sitting at the foot of a mountain fearing that it might fall on him, while the sinner (fajir) sees his sins as a fly that lands on his nose, he just waves it away. "  [Al-Bukhari, Al-Sahih, The Book of Supplications, Chapter on Tawbah] Ibn Hajr quotes in his commentary, Fath Al-Bari:Ibn Abi Jumrah said, “The reason for this [fear] is that the heart of a believer is illuminated; so when he sees from himself something that goes against what he illuminates his heart with, it is very distressing to him. The wisdom behind giving the example of a mountain Read more ...

How to Cope with Trials & Misfortunes

Life is never without its ups and downs, its triumphs and tears, its joys and sorrows. In the Quran we read the following: "We will surely test you with fear and hunger, and loss of property and lives and trade. But give glad-tidings to the patient who, when struck by some misfortune, say: “We belong to Allah, and to Him shall we return.” On those shall be blessings from their Lord and mercy; and such are the rightly-guided." [Quran, Surah al-Baqarah, 2:155-57] Patience (sabr) is seen as an antidote to the earthly struggles and sufferings we all must endure. The unbeliever must endure, as must the believer. Suffering is intrinsic to the human Read more ...

Satan’s insignificant objection

Source : http://www.wsatan.com/ While I was reciting: "Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, ready (to note it). And the stupor of death will bring Truth (before his eyes): "This was the thing which thou wast trying to escape!" And the Trumpet shall be blown: that will be the Day whereof Warning (had been given). And there will come forth every soul: with each will be an (angel) to drive, and an (angel) to bear witness. (It will be said:) "Thou wast heedless of this; now have We removed thy veil, and sharp is thy sight this Day!" And his Companion will say: "Here is (his Record) ready with me!" (The sentence will be:) "Throw, throw into Read more ...

On the Fingers of Abu Hurayrah

“I, ya Rasulullah!” Such were the words of the great Companion, Abu Hurayrah (radhiAllahu anhu) in acceptance of the request of his beloved, when he asked, “Who among you will accept of me the following words and adopt and execute their meaning or teach someone to adopt them and act according to them?” Then, as Abu Hurayrah recalls; “So he held my hand and counted five things according to my five fingers as follows.” Upon pondering over this sentence, one can rightfully assume that this act of the Prophet (sallaAllahu alayhe wasallam) of teaching Abu Hurayrah in such a personal manner – one by one, on the fingers of his hand – was a significant Read more ...

Complete trust in Allah’s decision

It is an integral part of the muslim's faith to believe that everything God chooses for him; evil or good, pleasure or affliction, is for the slave's benefit. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: "By Him in Whose Hand is my soul, Allah does not ordain a decree for a believer but for his good; and this merit is for no one except a believer..." (Sahih Muslim) It is beyond human understanding to completely comprehend the Divine Wisdom behind every affliction because our knowledge is limited to the apparent event. Allah alone knows how things will turn out in the end, and how it will benefit the slave. So, the calamity that appears to be evil may lead to many Read more ...
