Quran-tafseer

Precise and Reliable Tafseer of Quran recommended by Shaykh Fawzaan

Question: Noble Shaykh, there are many books of Tafseer of Quran, so which tafseer do you advise (us) to read. May Allaah reward you well. Answer:  The books of Tafseer (of Quran) are many, all praise be to Allaah. This is from the blessings of Allaah. However, these books of Tafseer vary – amongst them are those that are long and in depth and those that are short and abridged, as well as those that are free from errors and those that contain errors, particularly in matters of Creed. What I advise my brothers from amongst the youth to read is the Tafseer of Ibn Katheer (English translation is available) for it is the greatest of tafseers and the Read more ...

Examine the Speech of Every Person You Hear Today

Imam al-Barbahari, may Allaah have mercy upon him said; "Examine! May Allaah have mercy upon you, the speech of every person that you hear, practically in your day and age. Do not act in haste and do not enter into anything from it until you ask and see – Did any of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) speak concerning it or any of the scholars? For if you find a narration from them concerning it then hold tightly onto it and do not exchange it for anything nor give anything precedence over it and consequently fall into the Hell-Fire." The Explanation: Do not be hasty in (holding to be correct) that which you hear from the people, Read more ...

Advice to Jama’at al-Tableegh – Shaykh Muhammad Nasir al-Din al-Albani

Advice to Jama'at al-Tableegh | By Shaykh Muhammad Nasir al-Din al-Albani A lengthy transcript from a tape in which Imam al-Albani discusses the various errors found amongst the sect of al-Tableegh. "Praise be to Allaah. Salams and Salat on the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam)" Q: Where do the Jamaa'at-Tableegh go wrong? What is the remedy for their situation? A: The remedy is Knowledge, as we have always advised them. Instead of going out for this "Khurooj", which has no basis in the Sunnah, whereas they make it a Sunnah to be followed. Rather they should sit in the Mosques and learn the hadith and Fiqh and the manner of reading the Read more ...

You Will Be Accountable O Parents and Teachers

An exhortation for Muslim parents. By: Shaykh Muhammad ibn Jamil Zaynu "O you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from the Hellfire." [Surah al-Tahrim 66:6] Mothers, fathers, teachers, and the society as a whole, will all be accountable in front of Allah about the tarbiyyah (education and upbringing) of this generation. If its tarbiyah is good, then there will be happiness - both in this world and the Hereafter. If it is not, then there will be misery, and it will be a rope around your necks - since there occurs in the hadith: "Each of you is a shepherd, and each of you will be questioned about those who you are responsible for."

The Categorization of People with Regard to Knowledge

Author: Shaikh Muhammad 'Umar Bazmool | Source: At-Ta'seel fee Talab-il-'Ilm (Laying the Foundations for seeking Knowledge) People are divided into two categories with respect to Knowledge: Those who know, and Those who don’t know. Those who don’t know are obligated to ask the people of knowledge and accept their statements, while expending what effort they can in order to know the proofs and evidences. Allaah says: "And We did not send before you anyone except men that we gave revelation to. So ask the people of remembrance (knowledge) if you don’t know. With clear signs and books (We sent the Messengers). And We also sent down Read more ...

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 ...

Allaah said: “This day, I have completed your religion for you”

Allaah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) said: "This day, I have completed your religion for you" – Explained by Shaykh Salih Fawzan Allaah completed the religion through him (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and the proof is His saying, He the Most High: «This day, I have completed your religion for you, perfected My blessings upon you, and am pleased with Islam as your Religion.» [Surah al-Ma'idah, 5:3] He (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) did not pass away until after Allaah had completed the religion and the favour through him and had sent down to him His saying, He the Most High: «This day, I have completed your religion for you, perfected My blessings Read more ...

No real advancement for the Muslims without a Return to their Religion

Saudi King Abdul Azeez (rahimahullaah) said: "O Muslims! It is obligatory that we hold onto the Rope of Allaah (i.e. the Qur'aan), follow the Sunnah of Allaah's Messenger Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), follow the guidance of the Messenger, act on Allaah's orders and keep away from what Allaah has forbidden. Indeed, every speech that is not followed by action is false. There can be no rectification for the Muslims except through their unity upon singling out their Lord in [His Lordship, Names and Attributes and worshipping Him alone and associate none to Him as a partner in Worship]. [And in the event of] every differing that leads to splitting Read more ...

Don’t Just Assume he is Salafi. Make Sure he is Salafi

Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool said: I would like to draw my Salafi brothers’ attention to a dangerous issue. This issue has deceived them into thinking that anyone who is put forward to teach is [in fact] someone who should be studied under. So if he sees him writing on Salafi forums, he thinks he is Salafi. If he sees that he has authored books, he thinks he is Salafi. If he sees that he delivers sermons and he is able to articulate eloquently, he thinks he is Salafi. If he sees that he gathers the youth and teaches them Tawheed or Usool ath Thalaatha and the likes of these issues, he thinks he is Salafi, if they see that he is a university teacher, he thinks Read more ...

The Beauties of Islam

Undoubtedly, Islam is the most perfect religion, the most conformable to pure nature and sound reason. This is due to the characteristics, beauties, merits and benefits it comprises of that have never been found in any other religion before.

[Surah Al-Ma'idah, 5:3] Islam is the only religion capable of meeting the needs of both the soul and the body simultaneously. It does not view man as a gear in a machine as does communism, nor does it suppress man's natural needs and bar him from all his desires, as is the case with Read more ...
