Why Allaah created us?

The Devil’s Deception Of The Raafidah Shi’ah

All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds – may the salutations of Allaah, His peace and blessings be upon the Most Noble of all of the Prophets and Messengers, Muhammad, and upon his family, his Companions and all those who follow them precisely until the establishment of the Hour. From the greatest of evils present, those which corrupt one's Imaan, and harms one's Religion is the tribulation of the Raafidah Shi'ah – these individuals who portray their falsehood as if it alone, is the true Islaam. This deception has reached a point whereby some of those who profess to be upon the Sunnah have called for greater nearness, cooperation and affection Read more ...

The Loss of Tawheed Is the Reason for the Downfall of the Ummah

In the Name of Allaah, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy "By Allaah! This ummah was not led astray and overpowered by its enemies from amongst the Jews, Christians, Fire-worshippers, Shi'ah and others except after it abandoned and lost Tawheed! So Allaah humiliated it and He will not be pleased with it until it returns to the same Islam which the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and his companions were upon!" - Shaykh Rabi' ibn Hadi al-Madkhali [Nafahat al-Huda wa-al-Iman pg. 37. Munib al-Sumali] Read more ...

The State of the Region of Najd and Arabia in the Time of Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhab

The State of the Region of Najd, Arabia in the Time of Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab and the First Saudi State The Turkish Ottoman Empire had pockets of sovereignty in the Arabian lands. It became little more than a shell in Egypt, Syria and Iraq by the eighteenth century. As for the Arabian Peninsula, then the Ottomans never inhabited the vast areas of the Najd, the region in which Ibn 'Abdul-Wahhab was born and raised. Though they controlled Baghdad and Basrah in Iraq, the closest they came to the Najd was al-Ahsa in 1592CE, and they had a Turkish garrison at al-Hufoof, however only eighty years later the Bedouin tribe of Banu Khalid fell upon the Turks and expelled Read more ...

It is a division that is taken directly from Allaah’s Book. The first category is Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah, which means "to single out Allaah in understanding His Actions," like His creating, providing, bringing of life and death, and keeping order in all affairs. A person understands Read more ...

Do Not Advertise Your Generosity

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful In the world of social media, a disease that has plagued us is showing off (this is riyaa'). We do one good deed and it seems we must take its picture and announce to the world. We shoot a video and share it on Facebook or tweet about it or upload on Youtube with the intent to gather the most appreciations in forms of comments, likes and reshares. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) says in the Quran, "By no means shall you attain Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, etc., it means here Allah's Reward, i.e. Paradise), unless you spend (in Allah's Cause) of that which you love; and whatever of good you Read more ...
