The question is, 'what is the legislate stance on these insults and also what is the ruling on expressing anger with regards to insults to the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم by means of protesting ?

Answer by Sheikh Saleh al-Fawzaan حفظه الله:

“O' my brothers, this is not new. During the time of the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم they used to say he was a magician, a liar, soothsayer, poet and other than that. The Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم was patient and not hasty. Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى ordered him with patience:

Words that are  مُجَرَّد ثُلاَثِيْ  (3-letter root words) that have a shaddah in its root letters & how to conjugate them

·     Both these words  قَتَّلَ (Qattala) and دَقَّ (Dakka) have shaddah. What is the difference between the two words in relation to the shaddah?

The shaddah in the word Qattala on the ع al-kalima indicates an extra letter i.e. the  ت.  This is considered المَزِيد ثُلاَثِيْ .

In:  دَقَّ
There is NO extra letter in this word. Rather, it is a 3-letter root. This word is considered  مُجَرَّد ثُلاَثِيْ.   

The shaddah in a word could indicate one of two things (depending on the number of letters in a word) as illustrated in the example in the above two words:

·       that an extra letter is present;
·       no extra letter is present

Is It permissible to Portray any of the Sahaabah in Movies, Plays, etc. ?

In a fatwa of the Standing Committee (1/712) it says:

Portraying the Sahaabah or one of them is forbidden, because it is disrespectful towards them, lowers the esteem in which they are held and exposes them to criticism, even if it is thought that this serves a purpose, because the negative consequences to which it leads outweigh any benefits, and anything of which the negative consequences outweigh the positive is definitely forbidden. A statement was issued by the Council of Senior Scholars stating that this is forbidden.  

To further emphasize this point, we shall quote the statement of the Council of Senior Scholars on which all its members were unanimously agreed, the text of which follows:

1. Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted, praised the Sahaabah and affirmed their high status. Presenting the life story of any one of them in the form of a play or movie is contrary to Allaah’s praise of them and detracts from the high status and honour that Allaah, may He be exalted, granted them.

Seek protection from laziness & from not having the capability to do an action.

The Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم used to seek protection from laziness and also from not having the capability.

اللّهُمَّ إنِّي أعُوذُبِكَ مِن العَجزِ وَ الكَسلٍ
Allahumma inniy a’oothubika min al-ajzi wal-kasli 'O Allah, I seek refuge in you from incapability and laziness.'
Definition of Laziness:
A person has the capability to do an action but he does not want to.
Laziness  &  not having the capability -- both prevent a person from good. This is the reason why Prophet Muhammd صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم sought refuge from these two obstructions of good:
1) Laziness;
2) Not having the capability to do an action.

Beautiful Advice

Ibn al Jawzi رحمه الله تعالى said:  

"When your companion becomes angry and says something that is unwarranted, you should not take it too hard. His situation is that of a drunken person who is not aware of what is taking place. Instead, be patient, even if it means only for a little while. If you reciprocate his words with harsh words of your own, you become like the sane person who seeks revenge on a madman, or the conscious person who seeks retribution from an unconscious one. Look at him with a merciful eye and pity him for his actions."

Is Disobedience a cause for the destruction of the Ummah?

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Saaleh al-Uthaimeen رحمه الله said:

“Do you see any destruction more severe than the destruction of the Ummah nowadays? They are Billion in numbers, they are nearly one-fourth of the world population, but they have no value in the global community in spite of having moral force, material power and manpower. But when they neglected the Deen of Allaah, Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى forsook (renounced) them, so that a person trusts1 the oppressors among the Kuffâr more than he trusts1 his own brothers among the Muslims – and this is an ordeal and a calamity.”

[التعليق على السياسة الشرعية ص. 197]

1 The word يركن   can alternatively be translated as: 'relies upon, supports.'

Three conditions are tokens of the servant’s happiness [sa’adat al-abd], and the signs of his success in this world and the next. No servant is without them, but is always shifting from one to the other.

These are: 

1. When blessed, he gives thanks (Shukr);
2. when tried with difficulties/trials, he perseveres (Sabr); and
3. when sinful, he seeks forgiveness (Tawba).

1.     Shukr for blessings: The first condition is the blessings which come to the servant from Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى, one after another. What secures them is gratitude [Shukr], based on three supports: (ainward recognition of the blessing; (boutward mention and thanks for it; (cand its use in a way that pleases the One to whom it truly belongs and who truly bestows it.

What is our Aqeedah? What is Sunnah? Who are the Salaf? MUST READ !!


 (The Children's Treasure)

Taught by: Umm Hyatt al-Ameriki  حفظها الله

Question #13:   مَا عَقِيدتك؟ - What is your Aqeedah (belief)?


سُنِّي سَلَفِي. - (for males)
 سُنِّية سَلَفِية - (for females)

What does سُنِّية سَلَفِية  mean ?
It means we, (the Muslims) take our Deen from the Sunnah & from the Salaf.

The daleel (proof) to call ourselves Sunni is the following hadeeth:

عَنْ أَبِي نَجِيحٍ الْعِرْبَاضِ بْنِ سَارِيَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: "وَعَظَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه و سلم مَوْعِظَةً وَجِلَتْ مِنْهَا الْقُلُوبُ، وَذَرَفَتْ مِنْهَا الْعُيُونُ، فَقُلْنَا: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ! كَأَنَّهَا مَوْعِظَةُ مُوَدِّعٍ فَأَوْصِنَا، قَالَ: أُوصِيكُمْ بِتَقْوَى اللَّهِ، وَالسَّمْعِ وَالطَّاعَةِ وَإِنْ تَأَمَّرَ عَلَيْكُمْ عَبْدٌ، فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ يَعِشْ مِنْكُمْ فَسَيَرَى اخْتِلَافًا كَثِيرًا، فَعَلَيْكُمْ بِسُنَّتِي وَسُنَّةِ الْخُلَفَاءِ الرَّاشِدِينَ الْمَهْدِيينَ، عَضُّوا عَلَيْهَا بِالنَّوَاجِذِ، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَمُحْدَثَاتِ الْأُمُورِ؛ فَإِنَّ كُلَّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلَالَةٌ."

On the authority of Abu Najeeh al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah رضي اللّه عنـه who said:

The Messenger of Allaah صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, “O Messenger of Allaah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us.” He صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسل said, “I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allaah, and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer. Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the Khulafa ar-Rashideen (the rightly guided caliphs), those who guide to the right way. Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bid'ah (innovation) is misguidance.”
The Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم is clearly commanding us in this hadeeth:
عَلَيْكُمْ بِسُنَّتِي - It is upon you 'My Sunnah!'

The Sunnah means 'the way, the path' -- the way of the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم and the four righteous leaders i.e. the caliphs.

عَضُّوا عَلَيْهَا بِالنَّوَاجِذِ  - means Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. This shows how tightly and firmly we must hold onto the Sunnah of the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم.

When we say   سُنِّية , the   ' ي '  means that you are attributing and connecting yourself to the Sunnah (the Path) of the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم and the Salaf (our pious predecessors).
