The Believer Should Not Give Up…


In advising us on how we should be in terms of looking for the ease after the hardship Sheikh as Sa’adi explained the following:

O mankind, fear Allaah. Ponder upon the way that Allaah has ordained for things to be in His creation. Verily He is praised because of that, and we are ever thankful to Him for it.


Know that whatever affects you from hardship, than it is because of that which your hands have put forth, and yet Allaah over looks a lot of our bad deeds and shortcomings. You have to understand that these problems and issues that the people are going through, can only be removed by the one that is All Powerful over everything. The time will come that He replaces the hardship with its opposite (or ease). We know this because this is that which has been promised by The Truthful, The All Hearing and The All Seeing.

Relieving a Believer’s Hardships…


“Whoever helps a believer with a hardship from the hardships of this life, Allaah will help him with a hardship from the hardships of the Day of Resurrection.

Merits of Ribaat and Jihad


1303 - Abu `Abs `Abdur-Rahman bin Jabr (رضي اللّه عنـه) reported: The Messenger of Allah (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) said, "It will not happen that the feet soiled with dust while (doing Jihad) in the way of Allah, will be touched by the fire (of Hell).''
[Al-Bukhari]

Commentary: "Feet soiled with dust'' means participation in Jihad. That is to say, a person takes part in Jihad and yet goes to Hell is altogether impossible. What it signifies is that Jihad is a means of expiation of sins and that it guarantees the admission into Jannah, provided he is not guilty of major sins. This exception is confirmed by other Ahadith.

1304 - Abu Hurairah (رضي اللّه عنـه) said: The Messenger of Allaah (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) said, "No one who weeps out of Fear of Allaah will enter Hell until milk recedes to the udder, and the dust endured while striving in the Cause of Allaah and the smoke of Hell will never subsist together.''
[At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary: This Hadith makes use of a metaphor to stress the impossible. One who weeps for Fear of Allaah and one who is covered with the dust of the battlefield in the course of Jihad, will in no case enter Hell until the milk drawn from udder goes back to it. The dust of the battlefield of Jihad and the smoke of Hell cannot combine at one place. The mixing of the two is utterly impossible. However, this will apply only if one's `Aqeedah is correct and one's intention is correct (i.e., one participates in Jihad with the intention to please Allaah Alone).

1305 - Ibn `Abbas (رضي اللّه عنـه) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) saying, "Two eyes will never be touched by the fire of Hell; an eye which weeps out of Fear of Allah and an eye which spends the night in guarding in the Cause of Allah .''
[At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary: This Hadith tells us about the eminence of the person who weeps out of Fear of Allah and also brings into prominence the distinction of the Mujahid who keeps a vigil during Jihad.

“… Know that it is from Allaah…”

قال الإمام ابن قيم الجوزية رحمه الله

 من أعطي خيراً فالله أعطاه ، ومن وقي شراً فالله وقاه


Ibnul Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

“Whoever does good, must know that it is Allaah, who allowed him to do so, and whoever is protected from evil, must know that it is Allaah, who protected him.”

One is Comforted at the Onset of Calamity & Hardship

By: Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee  رحمه الله

One is faced with trials and difficulties in every moment of life, but having faith and certainty serves to comfort and console one of them. Strong faith, reliance upon Allaah, hope in the reward of Allaah and desire for His beneficence are the basic constituents that help bring this state about. The sweetness of the reward lessens the bitterness of patience. Allaah, Exalted is He says:

If you feel pain, they too are feeling it just as you are, but you hope for something from Allaah which they cannot hope for.”
[Soorah an-Nisaa, 4:104]

Unity with the Rafida is never possible!


The Imaam and father, ‘Abdul ‘Azeez ‘Abdullaah ibn Baaz رحمه الله said:

Unity between ‘ar-Raafida’ (The Shia) and Ahlu-Sunnah is never possible as there is a difference of ‘Aqeedah. As for the ‘Aqeedah of Ahlu-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah, it is to Tawheed of Allaah (single out Allaah) and have al-Ikhlaas (Sincerity) in the worship of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى, that is, not to associate anything when calling (upon Allaah), neither an Angel nor a Prophet. And it is Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى who knows the Ghaib (Unseen). And from the ‘Aqeedah of Ahlu-Sunnah is to love the Sahaba (Companions of Allaah’s Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم), may Allaah be pleased with all of them and He is pleased with them, and to have ‘eemaan (faith) that they are the most excellent of the creation of Allaah after the Prophets, and the best of them are Aboo Bakr as-Siddeeq, then ‘Umar, then ‘Uthmaan, then ‘Alee, may Allaah be pleased with them all. And the Raafida oppose this. So there is no unity between these two (‘Aqeedah), just as there is no unity between the Yahood (Jews), the Nasaara (Christians), the Vathaniyyeen (Idol worshippers) and the Ahlu-Sunnah. So for this reason, there is no unification between the Raafida and Ahlu-Sunnah due to the opposition of (their) ‘Aqeedah as we have made clear.

An Important Du’a

The Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم used to make the following Du’a (i.e. supplication, invocation) as reported by at-Tabaraanee in his book 'ad-Du’a' on the authority of Abu Hurairah رضي اللّه عنـه:

اللهمَّ إني أعوذُ بكَ...من خليلٍ ماكر عينَه تراني، وقلبُه يرعاني؛ إن رأى حسنة دفنها، وإذا رأى سيّئةً أذاعها)

"O Allaah! I seek refuge in you from a companion who plots (against me); his eyes observe me and his heart spies on me; if he sees any good (from me) he conceals it and if he sees any bad (from me) he exposes it."

The above hadeeth has been authenticated by al-Imaam al-Albani رحمه الله as found in his book as-Silsilatu as-Saheehah (3137). He رحمه الله used to end some of his works of research with this Du’a.

There is no Shyness in the Religion, or is there?

Questioner: The statement There is no shyness in the Religion has been circulating upon the tongues of the people.

Shaykh Abdul Azeez ibn Baaz (رحمه الله):
This is correct linguistically and in meaning. This is similar to what the woman (Umm Sulaym) said to the Prophet [May the peace and salutation of Allaah be upon him] Verily, Allaah is not shy of (telling you) the truth. Is it necessary for a woman to take a ‘ghusl’ (full bath) after she has a wet dream (nocturnal sexual discharge?)”
