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 ...

Why does Earthquake occur?

All praise be to Allah. May Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon Allah's Messenger and upon his family, Companions, and those who follow his guidance! Allah (Glorified be He) is All-Wise and All-Knowledgeable with what He predestines and what He legislates and commands. He creates what He wills of portents. He predestines them to make His servants fear Him, reminds them of what they have to do and warn them against Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship), disobeying His commands and violating His prohibitions. Allah (Glorified be He) says: "And We sent not the signs except to warn, and to make them afraid (of destruction)." Read more ...

Anyone who possesses a speck of Pride in his heart will not enter Paradise

Shaykh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) was asked: Regarding the Prophet’s statement: “Anyone who possesses a speck of pride (kibr) in his heart will not enter Paradise” – Is this hadeeth specific only to the believers or (is it specific only to the) unbelievers? If we were to say that it is specific for the Believers then (is not) our statement trivial considering (the fact that) the believers shall enter Paradise due to their Eemaan. If, on the other hand, we were to say that the hadeeth is specific for the unbelievers then what is the relevance of the statement (since it is already known that the unbelievers shall not gain admission to Read more ...

The Excellence of the Remembrance of Allah

Allah, the Exalted, says: "And the remembering (praising) of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising) of Allah in prayers]'' [Quran, 29:45] "Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying). I will remember you.'' [Quran, 2:152] "And remember your Rubb by your tongue and within yourself, humbly and with fear and without loudness in words, in the mornings and in the afternoons, and be not of those who are neglectful.'' [Quran, 7:205] "And remember Allah much, that you may be successful.'' [Quran, 62:10] "Verily, the Muslims (those who submit to Allah in Islam) men and women... (up to)... And Read more ...

Do you see your Sins as a Fly or a Mountain?

'Abdullah b. Mas'ud – Allah be pleased with him – said: "The believer sees his sins as if he is sitting at the foot of a mountain fearing that it might fall on him, while the sinner (fajir) sees his sins as a fly that lands on his nose, he just waves it away. "  [Al-Bukhari, Al-Sahih, The Book of Supplications, Chapter on Tawbah] Ibn Hajr quotes in his commentary, Fath Al-Bari:Ibn Abi Jumrah said, “The reason for this [fear] is that the heart of a believer is illuminated; so when he sees from himself something that goes against what he illuminates his heart with, it is very distressing to him. The wisdom behind giving the example of a mountain Read more ...

And I have to answer for them all…

"Verily, before that, they indulged in luxury," [Surah al-Waqi’ah, 56:45] Engrossed in the pursuit of our desires we keep ourselves back from reflecting upon the state of our souls. Scholars have always taught and lived by the truth that love of this world is the source of all error. `Umar (radi Allahu ‘anhu) thought about the following words in the noble Quran: "Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the present world's life; but Allah has the excellent return (Paradise with flowing rivers, etc.) 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 ...

Friday Khutbah (Sermons) : Reflect On Other Creatures' Worship - by Imam Al-Haramain Sheikh Saud ash Shuraim  from the Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah, Rabi’ul Akhir 14 , 1423AH (July 5th, 2002) The Transcript: All praise is due to Allah, Lord of all the worlds.

He created all these for a single purpose that all acts of worship should be solely His, that all Read more ...

A Satanic Calculation

lmam Jafar Sadik became interested in a man after he had repeatedly heard about his piety and kindness and his popularity with the common people. The Imam decided to find out if the man was truly righteous. So, one day, the lmam went to observe him. At that time, the man was surrounded by people. After a while, the people left and the man began to walk away. The lmam followed him. A little later, the man entered a bakery and cleverly hid two loaves of bread under his robe while the baker was busy. The lmam was surprised to see this and thought that the man must have paid for the loaves earlier. Even so, the Imam felt disturbed by the way the man had Read more ...

The First Night In The Grave

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "Everyone who dies - then his actions are sealed except for the one guarding the border in the way of Allah - his actions continue to increase for him until the Day of Resurrection and he is saved from the trials of the Grave." [Sahih: Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhee, al-Haakim: from Fadaalah ibn 'Ubaid & Ahmad from 'Uqbah ibn 'Aamir.] The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "Verily the grave is the first stopping place for the Hereafter; so if he is saved therein, then what comes after is easier than it. And if he is not saved therefrom, then that which comes after is harder." Read more ...
