On the authority of Abu Hurairah: The Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam said: “Part of someone’s being a good Muslim is his leaving alone that which does not concern him.” [Tirmidhee (2317) and Ibn Majah (3976) and Authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaani] A question was asked to Shaykh al-‘Uthaymeen: Does it mean that when a … Continue reading LEAVING OFF THAT WHICH DOES NOT CONCERN YOU: DO WE ALSO LEAVE OFF ENJOINING GOOD AND FORBIDDING EVIL?

The best thing to be advised with and the head of all affairs

Knowledge based benefits

Shaykh Al Uthaymeen رحمه الله mentions in his explanation of the hadeeth of Al Irbaad ibn Saariyyah رضي الله عنه:

(I advise you all with the fear of Allah..) This advice is taken from the statement of Allah ta’alaa:

ِAnd verily, We have recommended to the people of the Scripture before you, and to you (O Muslims) that you (all) fear Allah, and keep your duty to Him,[An Nisa:131]

So taqwa is the head of all affairs

Ways of Fasting the Day of `Aashooraa


Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen rahimahullaah in his Majmoo` Fataawaa vol. 20 pge. 37-38 was asked the following question:

Q: What do you say regarding fasting a day after `Aashooraa, as that which is legislated is fasting a day before it. (So), is fasting a day after `Aashooraa established by way of an authentic narration from the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu `alaihi wa sallam?

A personal word of advice to the youth who slander Shaykh Rabee’ and the Ulema in general

Knowledge based benefits

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It amazes one that those who do not know anything of knowledge are quick to lie upon the Shaykh, slander him, and speak with that which they know to be untrue or from unreliable sources. So I ask you, O you who have hatred for our Mashaayikh, what have they gone against the religion in?

What has Shaykh Rabee’ brought that was never done or spoken about by the Salaf?

What has Shaykh al Fawzaan done that has no basis in the religion?

What is your problem with these Mashaayikh while not even one of you, those that speak against them, are known for knowledge or trustworthiness?

You slander those who love them, respect them, and exalt their status with respect and honor with names such as ‘Madkhalis’ and ‘Jaamis’. Why?

I ask you, by Allah,  what proof do you have to warn against the Ulema?
