Do not enter the Ruins of the Punished People for mere Sightseeing

Sufyaan [ibn 'Uyayanah] narrated to us from 'Abdullaah ibn Deenaar from 'Abdullaah ibn 'Umar (radhiAllaahu anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said, "Do not enter the ruins of the people who were previously punished unless you are weeping. If you are not weeping, then do not enter their ruins, for I fear that what has befallen them may also befall you." [Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 2, p. 9. The isnaad of this hadeeth is saheeh according to the conditions set by al-Bukhari and Muslim.] The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said this to his companions when he led them, in 9 AH, in an expedition to Tabook (about 400 miles north of Madinah) Read more ...

Verily actions are by Intention

A very detailed explanation of the hadeeth of intention from the tremendous work of Ibn Rajab. Below are translated excerpts from the beautiful work by Imaam Ibn Rajab al-Hanbalee (rahmatullah) entitled 'Jaami Al-Uloom wal Hikm' in which he has a detailed commentary on 50 ahaadeeth of the Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). (Basically an-Nawawee's 42 ahaadeeth with 8 added on) The First Hadeeth Umar bin al-Khattaab relates that: "I heard the Messenger of Allah, (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), saying, "verily actions are by intentions, and for every person is what he intended. So the one whose hijrah was to Allah and His Messenger, then his hijrah 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 first Muslim Jinn

The Quran and Sunnah indicate that the jinn exist, and that there is a purpose for their existence in this life, which is to worship Allah Alone, with no partner or associate. Allah says: “And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans, except they should worship Me (Alone).” [al-Dhaariyaat 51:56]. “O assembly of jinns and mankind! Did there not come to you Messengers from amongst you, reciting unto you My Verses…?” [al-An’aam 6:130] The world of the jinn is an independent and separate world, with its own distinct nature and features that are hidden from the world of humans. Jinns and humans have some things in common, such as the possession Read more ...

Common Mistakes made in Salaah

Common Errors in Prayer That MUST Be Avoided:- 1. Reciting Surat al-Fatiha fast without pausing after each verse. The Prophet (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to pause after each verse of this Surah. (Abu Dawood) 2. Sticking the arms to the sides of the body, in Rukoo’ or Sujood, and sticking the belly to the thighs in Sujood. -  The Messenger of Allah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Let not one of you support himself on his forearms (in Sujood) like the dog. Let him rest on his palms and keep his elbows away from his body." (Sahih Muslim) -  The Messenger of Allah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to keep his arms away from his body during Rukoo’ Read more ...
