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?

The stance of Ahlus-Sunnah with regards to Yazeed, the son of Mu’aawiyah

The belief of Ahlus Sunnah and the Scholars of the Ummah is that Yazeed, the son of Mu'aawiyah, should not be insulted nor loved. This is due to the following.

Worship Allah, Not People

It is part of our nature as human beings to develop an attachment to those we love. From leaders to role models, to our family and friends; it is hard to imagine a world without those dear to us.
