Allaah said: “This day, I have completed your religion for you”

Allaah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) said: "This day, I have completed your religion for you" – Explained by Shaykh Salih Fawzan Allaah completed the religion through him (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) and the proof is His saying, He the Most High: «This day, I have completed your religion for you, perfected My blessings upon you, and am pleased with Islam as your Religion.» [Surah al-Ma'idah, 5:3] He (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) did not pass away until after Allaah had completed the religion and the favour through him and had sent down to him His saying, He the Most High: «This day, I have completed your religion for you, perfected My blessings Read more ...

Grave Worshippers: Altering of names does not change the Reality

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy Shaikh Saleh al Fawzaan states in his explanation of Kitab at-Tawhid under the chapter [From Shirk is to seek Aid and Assistance (after a calamity befalls) from other than Allaah or to Call Upon Others]: "Indeed Shaikh ul-Islam ibn Tamiyyah mentioned in one of his works – or rather, in many of his works – paraphrased as follows; Indeed that which occurs to the grave worshippers in terms of their needs being fulfilled [i.e. the affair they seek at the grave actually occurs for them], then that is not an evidence upon the correctness of their methodology [i.e. the methodology of grave worship], 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 ...

Benefits from Shaikh al-Fawzan | Ref: Khutub al-Minbariyyah, vol. 5. pp. 259-262 Take advantage of this month, may Allaah show you mercy, because for many of you it will not return.

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 ...

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 ...
Salafi Manhaj

What is Salafi Manhaj?

The Salafi Manhaj - Our Da'wah, Our Call 1.  We call, first and foremost, to the worship of Allaah alone, without associating partners with Him. This was the starting point of the call of the Messengers (alayhumus salaam), just as Allaah has stated: "We sent a messenger to every nation proclaiming: Worship Allaah alone and leave the worship of the false deities." So this call to the worship of Allaah alone is coupled with the negation of the worship of anything besides Him. 2.  We believe that our Religion calls to many essentials, so we call to the most essential affair, followed by that which is next in importance, in accordance to the Quranic Read more ...
