رَبِّ ابْنِ لِى عِندَكَ بَيْتاً فِى الْجَنَّةِ

A MUST read story of the not so prominent Sahabee – Julay’beeb رضي اللّه عنـه.

Edited by: Umm Hasna Bint Jabir as-Saylâniyyah

It is narrated in the Books of History that Julay’beeb رضي اللّه عنـه was a Sahabee who was:

·       Short in height and deformed in appearance;
·       His lineage nor were his parents known;
·       He had no clan to protect him & no tribe willing to accept him as their own;
·       He was a lonely figure to the extent even the small children of Madinah would tease and mock him
·       Owing to his disabilities, no one would allow him to sit in their company.

The Prophet of Allaah asked: "Would you like to get married, my dear Julay’beeb?”....

How to attain SUCCESS & FELICITY?

Imâm Ibnul Qayyim al Jawziyyah رحمه الله said:

Many people think that they can perform some sin, and then if they say “Astaghfirullaah” the sin will disappear. 

Or, they may deceive themselves with ahadeeth such as: “Whoever says “Subhaanallaahi wa-bi hamdih” one hundred times in a day, his sins are taken off from him, even if they be like the foam of the ocean.” Or “A servant committed a sin and then said, ‘O Lord! I have committed a sin, so forgive me,’ and so he was forgiven . . . . then Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says, 

My servant knows that he has a Lord Who forgives sins, and takes [to task] for them. I have forgiven My servant, so let him do as he wishes.'”

Such people cling to the texts of hope, and hold fast to them with both hands, and put [all] their reliance in them, such that if they are reprimanded for committing some sin, they will recite all that they known about Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى's mercy and forgiveness. Some went to excessive limits in this, such that they claimed that to remain free of sins is being ignorant or under-estimating Allaah's mercy and pardon.

Regarding Those Who Say Bad Things About You

Sheikh Naasir As-Sa’deeرحمه الله  said:

And from the beneficial matters is that you know that the harm people may cause you – especially in their saying bad things about you – it does NOT harm you, but rather it harms them. That is unless you busy yourself with giving concern to what they say, and you allow it to control your feelings. In that case their evil speech will harm you, just as it harms them. So if you do not pay any attention to what they say, it CANNOT harm you at all.

Do you want Allaah to respond to you in times of hardship and distress?

مَنْ سَرَّهُ أَنْ يَسْتَجِيْبَ اللهُ لَهُ عِنْدَ الشَّدَائِدِ وَالْكَرْبِ فَلْيُكْثِرِ
الدُّعَاءَ فِي الْرَّخَاْءِ

From Abi Hurairah that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Whoever would be delighted by Allaah responding to him in times of hardship and distress, then let him supplicate abundantly when at ease.”

And from Aaishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, that the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم would remember Allaah, the Most High, at all times.

The Reward of FREEING ten slaves on your account?

Abu Huraira (radiyAllaahu anhu) narrated that Allaah's Messenger said:

"Whoever says:
'Laa ilaaha illa-Allaahu wahdahu laa sharika lahu, lahul-mulku, wa Lahul-hamdu, wahuwa 'alaa kulli shai'in qadeer.’
(There is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah Alone, He has no associate. His is the Dominion & to Him is due all Praise; He gives life & causes death & He has power over all things).

100 times will get the same reward as liberating (freeing) ten slaves, one hundred good deeds will be written in his account, & one hundred sins will be deducted from his account, & it (his saying) will be a shield for him from Shaitaan on that day till night, & NOBODY will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than him."

[Bukhari Volume 8, Book 75, Number 412. This hadith is also in Muslim]

Choosing a Husband for your Daughter...!

A man asked Hasan bin ‘Ali رضي اللّه عنـه “I have a daughter and people have proposed to her, so to whom should I marry her?”

He said, “Marry her to one who FEARS ALLAAH, for if he loves her, he  will honor her; and if he hates her, he will NOT wrong her.

(Gems & Jewels pg.171)

Say to the Raafidah: "Indeed it is shirk to call upon other than Allaah…”

{Source: Taken from Sheikh Muqbil رحمه الله’s book titled: ‘Al-ILhaadul Khumeini Fee Ardil Haramayn’}
 Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى said:

وَعَجِبُوا أَن جَاءهُم مُّنذِرٌ مِّنْهُمْ وَقَالَ الْكَافِرُونَ هَذَا سَاحِرٌ كَذَّابٌ
أَجَعَلَ الْآلِهَةَ إِلَهًا وَاحِدًا إِنَّ هَذَا لَشَيْءٌ عُجَابٌ
وَانطَلَقَ الْمَلَأُ مِنْهُمْ أَنِ امْشُوا وَاصْبِرُوا عَلَى آلِهَتِكُمْ إِنَّ هَذَا لَشَيْءٌ يُرَادُ
مَا سَمِعْنَا بِهَذَا فِي الْمِلَّةِ الْآخِرَةِ إِنْ هَذَا إِلَّا اخْتِلَاقٌ
أَأُنزِلَ عَلَيْهِ الذِّكْرُ مِن بَيْنِنَا بَلْ هُمْ فِي شَكٍّ مِّن ذِكْرِي بَلْ لَمَّا يَذُوقُوا عَذَابِ

"And they (Arab pagans) wonder that a Warner (Muhammad صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) has come to them from among themselves! And the disbelievers say: “This (Prophet Muhammad) is a sorcerer, a liar. Has he made the aaliha (gods) (all) into One Ilaah (God – Allaah). Verily, this is a curious thing!” And the leaders among them went about (saying): “Go on, and remain constant to your aaliha (gods)! Verily, this is a thing designed (against you)! We have not heard (the like) of this among the people of these later days. This is nothing but an invention! Has the Reminder been sent down to him (alone) from among us?” Nay! but they are in doubt about My Reminder (this Qur’an)! Nay, but they have not tasted (My) Torment!"
[Saad 38:4-8]

After quoting these aayaat of the Qur’an, Sheikh Muqbil رحمه الله stated:

Therefore, say to the Raafidah: Indeed it is shirk to call upon other than Allaah in seeking benefit and in seeking protection from harm in a matter which none can (fulfill) except Allaah. It is not permissible to call upon Ali Ibn Abi Tâlib or other than him amongst the dead رضي الله عنهم , because Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى said:

Whoever defends his brother’s honor in his absence, Allaah will protect his face from the Hellfire..

(Extract from Sharh Buloogh al-Maram of Sheikh Saleh al Fawzaan, pg. 291-292)

Abu ad-Darda’ رضي اللّه عنـه narrated that the Messenger of Allaah صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:

Whoever defends his brother’s honor in his absence, Allaah will protect his face from the Fire of Hell on the Day of Resurrection.

[Related by At-Tirmidhee who graded it to be Hasan. Ahmad has something similar from the Hadeeth of Asmaa’ bint Yazeed]

Explanation: “Whoever defends his brother’s honor in his absence…”
Meaning: In the state of his brother’s absence. If he happens to attend a gathering and his Muslim brother is being mentioned with sin or being degraded, then he defends him as he would defend his own honor, because his brother’s honor is like his own.

Therefore he defends his brother’s honor, by censuring the backbiters and preventing them from persisting as it relates to the honor of his Muslim brother. He does not resign and stay quiet, leaving them to backbite. This is the Muslim’s obligation, and it is not permitted for him to stay quiet and keep the peace, for he will be sinning due to that and he will be a sharer and partner to them regarding the sin, (that is) because he saw an evil (taking place) and he did not change it, whilst having the ability to do so.

How much more then, if he participated with them in the act, and he began backbiting with them? This is even worse. As for if he defends his brother’s honor and he prevents them from backbiting his brother, then Allaah, the Majestic and Exalted, will reward him by protecting his face from the Fire on the Day of Resurrection. This is a tremendous favor, because on the Day of Resurrection, the Fire will be brought in to view.

He سُبحانه وتعالى said:
وَبُرِّزَتِ الْجَحِيمُ لِمَن يَرَى
And Hell-fire shall be made apparent in full view for (every) one who sees.”
(An-Nazia't 79:36)
