From the signs that one is blessed in his knowledge..

Sheikh al-Albaani رحمه الله  said:

The Scholars have said (that) from the signs that one is blessed in his knowledge is him referring points of benefits to the founder of it (such as the author or the translator or a reference to where one got the benefit from), because in doing that one frees himself from plagiarism as it is been brought to attention by the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم in his statement: The one being satisfied with that he has not been given is as a person wearing two garments of deception.
(Bukari & Muslim)

Who will be put to trial??

Anyone who turns away from the worship, obedience and love of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى, will be put in to trial with the worship, service and love for the creation.”

Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim رحمه الله said:

When the slave wakes up as the night encloses him, and his only concern is Allaah and how to please and obey Him, then Allaah takes upon Him[self] to fulfill all of his needs and remove from him all that causes him anxiety. Allaah سُبحانه وتعلى also makes his heart free to love Him only, his tongue free to remember Him only, and his body free to serve Him only.

However, when a slave of Allaah wakes up when the night encloses him, and his main concern is the world, Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى will make him bear the burdens of anxiety, grief, and hardship. Allaah will entrust him to his own self and He will make his heart busy, sealing it from His love, since it will be preoccupied with love for creation. Allaah will keep his tongue from remembrance because it will be engaged with His creation; his body will be kept from obedience, since it will be enslaved by its desires and services. And he will toil like a beast of burden toils in the service of another.

I rely upon my Creator when it comes to my provisions..

One of the Worst Sins!

By Sheikh Zayd al-Madkhali رحمه الله

Khawwat ibn Jubayr [رحمه الله] said,

نَوْمُ أَوَّلِ النَّهَارِ خُرْقٌ، وَأَوْسَطُهُ خُلْقٌ، وَآخِرُهُ حُمْقٌ

Sleeping in the first part of the day is ignorance, and in the middle of the day [good] character, and in the last part of the day stupidity.” 
[Bukhari – Book of Manners #1242]

Imâm Bukhari
رحمه الله said:

As for the hadith, “Whoever sleeps after ‘Asr and loses his mind as a result has no-one to blame but himself,” then it is a weak [narration] and it is known for its weakness.

The Sheikh رحمه الله comments on this narration in his explanation of al-Adab al-Mufrad by Imâm Bukhari on page 363 Vol. 3. He رحمه الله said,

This narration contains beneficial guidance that relates to mankind’s daily and nightly life and conduct. [This guidance] is pertaining to the time of sleeping/napping, and the origin of the time to sleep is during the night. 

Your brother is the one who advises you.

 

Translation:

"From the sign of completeness of a servant's intelligence and knowledge is that he knows if Allaah has afflicted him with some evil, and that none can remove it except Him سبحانه وتعالى.

And if He سبحانه وتعالى  blessed him with a favor, then none can provide for him with the like except Him عزوجل."
 
Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله

Consequences of Sins!

Question: A sister with the initials 'A.A' from Riyadh says in her question: I read that from the consequences of sinning is punishment from Allaah and the removal of blessings. So I weep out of fear from that, direct me, may Allaah reward you with goodness?

Answer:
No doubt that committing sins are from the causes that draw the Anger of Allaah (The-Exalted and Glorious), and from the causes of eradicating blessings, drought and the domination of the enemy as Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى said:

And indeed We punished the people of Fir'aun (Pharaoh) with years of drought and shortness of fruits (crops, etc.), that they might remember (take heed).” [1]

So We punished each (of them) for his sins, of them were some on whom We sent Hasiban (a violent wind with shower of stones) [as the people of Lout (Lot)], and of them were some who were overtaken by As-Saihah [torment - awful cry, etc.], and of them were some whom We drowned [as the people of Nuh (Noah), or Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his people]. It was not Allaah Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves.” [2]

And Ayaat related to this meaning are many. And it has been authentically reported that the Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

A servant is prevented from provision due to a sin that he commits.” [3]

Therefore, it is obligatory upon every Muslim, man and woman, to beware of sins and to repent from what has passed, along with having good thoughts of Allaah the Exalted and hope in his forgiveness, and fear his Anger and punishment, as The-Exalted said in His Noble Book about His righteous worshipers:

Saying to the person who is standing & drinking that he Sinning – Sheikh Abdul Muhsin al-Abbaad حفظه الله

Question: What is the ruling of a person drinking standing and is it allowed for us to say to the one drinking standing that you are sinning?

Answer: We shouldn't say to him you are sinning. Rather, we say drinking when sitting is more preferable and better, while drinking when standing is permissible.

What is the Highest Level of Eemaan?

كَنْزُالأَطْفاَل
(The Children's Treasure)
Taught by: Umm Hyatt al-Ameriki  
Question #21: 
٢١) ما أعلى شُعَبِ الايمان؟
     أعْلاَها قَوْلُ: لا اِله إلاَّ الله                            
A) The Highest level of Eemaan is the statement  لا اِله إلاَّ الله.        
                 
This statement لا اِله إلاَّ الله is called ‘Kalimatut-Tawheed’ (statement of Tawheed). The daleel is the hadeeth that comes in the Hadeeth of Abi Huraira رضي اللّه عنـه recorded in Bukhari and Muslim. 

It is also the greatest of things that is obligatory upon us, i.e. to know Kalimatut-Tawheed. It is the last obligation upon us to know and because of this the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:

Advise the dying person to say   لا اِله إلاَّ الله (there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah). It is narrated on the authority of Abu Sa'id al-Khudri رضي اللّه عنـه that the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said: "Prompt your dying people to say: لا اِله إلاَّ الله."
(Muslim)
