Authentic Islaamic material based upon the Qur'aan & Sunnah as understood by the Salaf-us-Saalih (Pious Predecessors) from the corner of a Salafi Home... Sheikh Muqbil رحمه الله said: "Fear الله and teach your families, teach your sons & daughters. How wonderful is the home in which its people are upon the sunnah."
[Taken from the audio: Al Hath - alaa Talab - ul Hadith, by Sheikh Muqbil Al-Hadee Al-Waadee.]
hardness of the heart has a cure and its cure is by abundantly reciting the
Qur’aan. The evidence for this is the statement of Allaah,
لَو أَنزَلنَا هَـٰذَا ٱلقُرءَانَ عَلَىٰ جَبَلٍ لَّرَأَيتَهُ ۥ خَـٰشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّن خَشيَةِ ٱللَّهِ “Had We sent down this Qur’aan on a mountain, you would
surely have seen it humbling itself and rend asunder by the fear of Allaah…”
A mountain is a firm rock that if the Qur’aan were to descend upon then it would become humble and break. The same goes for the heart, when the Qur’aan is recited while pondering over its meanings with deep contemplation then there is no doubt that it will affect the heart. Listen to the statement of Allaah,
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَذِكْرَى لِمَنْ كَانَ لَهُ قَلْبٌ أَوْ
أَلْقَى السَّمْعَ وَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ “Verily, therein (the Qur’aan) is indeed a reminder for
him who has a heart or gives ear while he is heedful.”
The Noble Scholar Sheikh Saalih al-Fawzaan (حفظه الله)
There are now (in this day and time) two deviated
paths regarding learning:
1) Learning (only) from books without
(learning from) the ‘Ulamaa. This is a deviated path and many have gone astray
because of it. This is due to the person not understanding what is in the books
or he understands in a manner that is not intended because the books have not
been explained and clarified to him. Or it is possible that the author is a
deviant in his understanding or in his knowledge, so he fills his books with
the mistakes in the matter of the knowledge.
So, this ignorant youth reads them and
embraces them. Therefore the books are not to be depended upon. This is even if
they are authentic books. You will not understand them upon that which is
required (for one to understand them). The Khawaarij did not go astray or lead
others astray along with their intelligence and piety except due to them
keeping away from the ‘Ulamaa, depending upon their understanding and those
(who don’t have understanding) like them. So they received (knowledge) from one
another and as a result they became a harm upon themselves and a harm upon the
This is the result of keeping away from the
‘Ulamaa. I advise you that you busy (yourselves) with seeking the
beneficial knowledge at the hands of the Scholars and keep away from vain
speech regarding the people. Keep away from the affairs of backbiting,
tale-carrying, criticizing (without right), and defamation (of the people
without right). Indeed this is a widespread evil that has separated the youth
of the Ummah and made them into different sects and parties due to speaking ill
of the people (without right).
2) There are those who don’t have any concern
except for “so and so said this, so and so said that, and what’s with you
and so and so.”
You (yourself) seek the knowledge in order
that you know the truth. As for you declaring the people to be wrong
before you learn and you say, “so and so said this and so and so said that
and be aware of so and so…”
There is a very regrettable thing with regard
to this matter which is the carelessness of some women concerning travelling by
airplane without a Mahram.
They are very negligent in this matter: One
finds women travelling by airplane alone, and their justification for doing
this is that they say that her Mahram escorted her in the airport from which
the airplane took off and the other Mahram will meet her in the airport at
which the airplane lands, and that in the airplane she is safe.
This justification is weak in reality, because
the Mahram who accompanies her does not admit her onto the airplane, he only
admits her to the departure lounge.
It may also be that the airplane is delayed in
taking off and so this woman remains lost, or the airplane might take off and
then be unable to land at the intended airport due to some reason or another,
and so it lands at some other place, else and so this woman will be lost. Or,
the airplane might land at the intended airport, but the Mahram who is supposed
to meet her does not arrive due to one reason or another, such as illness,
sleep or a car accident which prevents him from getting there, or something
Even if all of these things did not happen,
and the airplane landed at the correct time of arrival and the Mahram who was
supposed to meet her was present, there might be some man sitting next to her
on the airplane who does not fear Allaah, the Most High and does not respect
the worshippers of Allaah, and he might be attracted to her and she to him,
which might lead to Fitnah (temptation, trial) and unlawful deeds, as is well

What is the significance of Dua (دُعَاء supplication)?
Dua is ibaadah (worship).
CONDITIONS OF DU’A
For the Du’a
to be answered, there are conditions which have to be fulfilled. Imaam Nawawi رحمه اللهmentions in
his book ‘al-Adkhaar’, the characteristics (Adab) that one should have
when making Du’a.
Choosing a time that is considered
noble with Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى. These are times that the Du’as are
answered, e.g. Yawmul Arafah, the last hour of Yawmul Jumu’ah, Mondays and
Thursdays when a person is fasting, the last of the night wherein Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says that He
descends to the lowest heaven etc.
Choosing a particular state (condition)
that we should be in such as in the position of sujood (prostration), between
the adhaan and the iqamah etc. (We will not be going into these daleel right
The heart at
the time of making Du’a should be soft. If the heart is hard, one cannot
benefit from his Du’a. As we all know, the heart goes through different states.
Sometimes it is gentle and soft and at other times it is hard. One will feel
close to Allaah only if his heart has softness in it, which in turn will
benefit his Du’a.
you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve..’
[Al Qasas, 28:7]
For verily what she did here is the very essence of
having confidence in Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى. If it was not for the completeness of her
confidence in Allaah, she would not have thrown her child, her prized
possession in the stream of water to be played with by the waves and current to
where it would land or stop".
