Is The Du’a of The Traveler Accepted?



Ash-Sheikh al-Uthaimeen, (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said :

Traveling is from the reasons why the du’a is answered and the viewpoint of this is that several ahadeeth have been narrated regarding that the du’a of the traveler will not be rejected, hence the Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم brought mentioning of the word ’traveling’ which indicates that traveling has a great affect upon the supplication being answered and especially if it is a long journey and distant from the home, for indeed the person’s heart will become stronger in faith and reliance upon Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى.”

Ref: Sharh Forty Hadeeth, page 162, print: ad-Dhiyaa.

The mother is the first school !



Sheikh Ahmed an-Najmi (Hafidhahullaah): 

"The mother is the first school. If she is righteous, the progeny becomes righteous.
(Bi'ithnillaahi)

The Best Act of Worship: Humility

Animated wallpaper, screensaver 240x320 for cellphone


عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ: " يَغْفُلُونَ عَنْ أَفْضَلِ الْعِبَادَةِ: التَّوَاضُعِ "

Aisha رضي الله عنها said:

"People are paying no attention to the best act of worship: Humility."

(Collected by Ibn Abee Shaybah (13/360) Ibn Hajr graded this Athar as being Saheeh.)

Benefits for this subject:

At-Tabari (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 

"Allaah tests His believing servants with humility to see how they obey Him and follow His commands.
[Saheeh Bukhari Ibn Battal]

Shaykh Abdur Rahman As-Sa'dee (May Allaah rest him in Jannah) said,

 "Humility and Humbleness are among the foundations of the religion and its core whereas, pride contradicts Islaam.”

The origin of humility is found in the verse: (سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا) (We hear and obey) [Al-Baqarah:285]. This means we hear what you have said our Lord in the Qur’aan and what Your Messenger has said.

Love and hate for the sake of Allaah



Ash-Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (رحمه الله) said in his essay on Al-Uboodiyyah:

The true ‘abd however, is the one who is pleased with what pleases Allaah
سُبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger; who has hatred for what Allaah and His Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم hate; offers walaa’ to the awaliyaa’ of Allaah and holds enmity towards the enemies of Allaah. This is the person who has fulfilled emaan as in the hadeeth:

Whoever loves for Allaah, hates for Allaah, gives for Allaah and denies for Allaah has fulfilled emaan.”1

He (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) also said:

The firmest bond of emaan is love for Allaah and hate for Allaah.”2

Beware if Allaah showers you with blessings whilst you disobey Him..

The Ruling of Fearing The Jinn



Ash-Shaykh Muqbil, (may Allaah have mercy upon him), was asked regarding the ruling on having fear from the Jinn and if it is considered to be shirk?

A: Having fear from the Jinn does not reach level of being shirk unless the person believes that they have control of the creation besides Allaah or that they are partners with Allaah, The Most High, then this reaches the level of shirk or else it is considered to be a natural form of fear which a person does not get a sin for however it is a form of cowardice, while the Prophet
صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said: “The worse trait in a man is having severe level of cowardice and not being generous.” Therefore it is appropriate that he strengthens his eeman and that he depends upon Allaah, The Most High.
