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.]
It is also desirable for the worshiper
to make his heart present during all the matters which are related to the
prayer. When he hears the call of the Mu’adhin he should liken it to the call
on the Day of Judgement and set out to answer it with vigour and determination.
Let him consider (the reality of) what he is responding to and in what state
his body comes to the prayer. When he has covered himself (for the prayer) he
should realize that the purpose behind it is to conceal the shamefulness of his
body from the creation. Let him also realize his deficiencies and defects and
the scandals and disgraces of his inner self which none can know except the
Creator and which none can cover or hide. Only remorse, modesty and fear can
expiate for them.
‘Abdur Rahman ibn Naasir as-Sa’dee (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said in one
of his Friday sermons:
Oh Mankind! Fear Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى, & beware
of being from those who Allaah mentioned concerning them:
there had succeeded them a generation who have given up As-Salat (the prayers)
[i.e. made their Salat
(prayers) to be lost, either by not offering them or by not offering them perfectly
or by not offering them in their proper fixed times, etc.] &
have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell.”
disregarded the prayer by not praying it at its correct time & were negligent
concerning the juma’ (Friday
prayers) & congregational prayers. They did not fear there Lord nor were they
heedful of His punishments. When they offered the prayer it was like the
pecking of a bird not consisting of any tranquility, serenity or hope of a
reward. You would think they were being propelled when they began to pray &
you see them careless about its pillars & conditions, unconcerned about its
completeness. They forgot Allaah, therefore He forgot them & they wasted the
worldly & religious benefits.
