On the Etiquette of Raising and Educating the Muslim Children, Allaah, the glorified and exalted said, "O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allaah, but do that which they are commanded." [Surah at-Tahrim, 66:6] Below are some important points from the Quran and authentic sunnah on the topic of raising children: To teach the child, that the greatest blessing that Allaah has given us is Islam.

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 ...

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 ...

The three categories of Tawheed, defined in the Quran

In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful, may His Salaah and Salaam be upon His final Messenger, and upon all his family members and companions, and those who follow his way, to proceed... Tawheed has three categories understood directly from Allaah’s Book. This division of tawheed is not from someone’s opinion, nor is it merely a traditional way to explain tawheed. 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 ...

laa illaha illalla

Testimony that Laa llaaha Illa-Allah

This phrase has two parts: 1) "Laa llaaha" : Which negates that anything or anyone deserves to be worshipped other than Allah. 2) "Illa-Allah" : Which affirms that Allah alone truly deserves to be worshipped. Allah (Subhanahu Ta’ala) said: "And (remember) when Ibraheem said to his father and his people: "Verily, I am innocent of what you worship, except Him (i.e Allah alone I worship none) Who did create me; and verily, He will guide me." [43:26-27] Therefore it's not sufficient to worship Allah, rather you must worship Him alone. The Tawheed of a person is not correct except by singling out Allah in worship and freeing one's self from polytheism Read more ...

A Composed Dialogue on Tawheed

A man by the name of Abdullah (Abdullah literally means the slave/worshipper of Allah) met a man named Abd-un-Nabi (The slave/worshipper of the Prophet) and felt apprehension of this name, thinking, "How can someone make himself the slave and worshipper of someone other than Allah?!" Abdullah thus addressed Abd-un-Nabi, saying: "Do you worship solmeone other than Allah?" Abd-un-Nabi replied. "No! I do not worship anyone other than Allah. I am a Muslim and I worship Allah alone." Abdullah: Then why does your name resemble some Christians names, like Abd-ul-Maseeh (The slave/worshipper of the Messiah, i.e. Jesus. This is a common name among Arab Christians). Read more ...

The Falsehood of Shirk from the Parables in the Noble Quran

All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and on his Family and Companions. "Verily, Allah is not ashamed to set forth a parable even of a mosquito or so much more when it is bigger than it. And as for those who believe, they know that it is the Truth from their Lord, but as for those who disbelieve, they say; "What did Allah intend by this parable?" By it He misleads many and many He guides thereby. And He misleads thereby only those who are rebellious, disobedient to Allah. Those who break Allah's Covenant after ratifying it and sever what Allah 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 ...
