The Dangers of Spreading Rumours – Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan

An excellent article on the danger of spreading rumours without verification. The Noble Shaykh al-'Allamah Salih al-Fawzan was asked: What is the dangers of rumours and spreading speech and narrations without deliberation and verification? He answered: It is not permissible to transmit rumours and to spread fear amongst the Muslims and weaken their spirits; this action is from the actions of the hypocrites who spread rumours amongst the Muslims in order to impede them and set them back, and to bring about fear in their hearts. So this is from the actions of the hypocrites, and Allaah (Tabaraka wa ta'ala) says, "O you who believe! If a rebellious Read more ...

Dealing in Riba (Interest) is War against Allaah and His Messenger (pbuh)

In the name of Allaah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful Verily, the issue of Riba is one of the most serious matters that should be tackled. In this regard, all of the heavenly revelations have prohibited dealing in it, and Allaah warns those dealing in it with the severest threat.

[Quran: Al-Baqarah: 275] In this verse, Allaah decrees for the person, who deals in Riba and accepts its interest that he "cannot stand" from his grave "except as one stands who is being beaten 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 ...

7 Fundamental Questions Regarding Islam

Question 1. What is Islam? Islam is an Arabic term that means: "To submit oneself to Almighty God by worshipping him alone, to yield in obedience to Him, and to free oneself from idolatry and those who worship other than Almighty God". Unlike the names used for other religions, the term Islam is not an attachment to any human being, time or location. For example, Buddhism was named after it's founder Gautama Buddha; Judaism refers to one of the sons of the Biblical patriarch Jacob (Israel), and Christianity is a reference to Jesus Christ. The term Islam on the other hand is a connection to the submission and worship of the one true Lord and Creator of 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 ...
