The Tyranny of the Rulers is Not a Reason for Rebellion

The goal of the Jihadist sects is one and the same: rebellion against those in authority and a desire to rule over the Muslim lands. They may alter their names and titles but their ideology remains the same. Islam itself, despite what these sects assert, forbids open censure and rebellion against even the most wicked and tyrannical of Muslim rulers. The Prophet of Allaah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), upon whose statements and actions we establish our religion, stated in an authentic tradition: “There will appear after me rulers, they will not guide by my guidance, and they will not establish my Sunnah; there will be amongst them men whose hearts will Read more ...

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 ...

The Deeds of the People of Paradise and of the Fire

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H) recounts the deeds of those who shall enter Paradise and the deeds of those who shall enter the Fire. Ibn Taymiyyah was asked, what are the deeds of the people of Paradise, and what are the deeds of the people of the Fire?

So the deeds of the people of Paradise are faith in Allah, and His angels, and His books, and His messengers, and the Last Day, Read more ...

The Bitter Consequences of Sins

It  is essential to know that sins and acts of disobedience are,  necessarily, very harmful. Their harmful effects upon the heart are  akin to the harmful effects of poison upon the body, though the effects  vary in their levels and intensities. So is there any evil or harm in  this world, or in the Hereafter, except that it is due to sins and  disobedience? So what was it that expelled the  two parents [i.e. Adam and Eve] from Paradise; the home of delight,  bliss, splendor and joy; to the home of pain, sorrow and misfortune? What was it that expelled Iblees [i.e. Satan] from the heavenly realms,  causing him to be rejected and cursed; transforming Read more ...

“When Will Our Lands Return to Us?”

A young man enters a gathering in which an elderly scholar is addressing an audience. Clearly agitated, the young man struggles to wait for a pause in the scholar’s speech in order to interject. Finding his moment, the man gets up to say his piece. Voice raised and angry, he asks (without really asking): Mata ta‘udu ilayna afghanistan? - ‘When will Afghanistan be returned to us?’ Mata ta‘udu ilayna al-‘iraq? – ‘When will Iraq return to us?’ Mata ta‘udu ilayna falastin? – ‘When shall Palestine be returned to us?’ Mata, mata, mata!? – ‘When, when, WHEN!?’ The shaykh takes a deep breath and lets out a subdued sigh of Read more ...
