By Shaykh ’AbdusSalaam bin Saalim bin Rajaa’ as-Suhaymee
(Associate Professor at the Department of Fiqh in the Sharee’ah College, the Islamic University of Madeenah)

“It is a must for every Muslim to follow the Book (Quran) and the Sunnah with the understanding of the Salaf us Salih (Sahabah).

Authors Statement:

I participated in giving some lessons at the Shari’ah College at the Islamic University of Madinah and, All praise is due to Allah, delivered a number of lessons related to the correct Manhaj (methodology), the Manhaj of the Salaf Us Salih. 

This is because Salafiyyah means: Following the Islamic religion based on the companions of the Messenger of Allah and those who followed them in their Manhaj. 

Some brothers impressed upon me to publish these lessons so i revised it and appended to it with that which was relevant to the topic, I also saw that it be appropriate to name the book “Be a Salafee Upon the Path” and I ask Allah to provide me with sincerity in speech and action and to bless us and the Muslims as a whole with beneficial Knowledge and righteous actions and to bring benefit with what i have written.”

~ Do You Command the People with Righteousness But Forget Yourselves – Abu Yusuf Khaleefah [Mp3|En]

Do You Command the People with Righteousness But Forget Yourselves

The Condemnation of commanding Others to observe Righteousness while ignoring Righteousness :

Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture (Tawrah))! Have you then no sense) (Surah Baqarah 2:44)

أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَابَ أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ

Allaah said, “How is it, O People of the Book, that you command people to perform Al-Birr, which encompasses all types of righteousness, yet forget yourselves and do not heed what you call others to. And you read Allaah’s Book (the Tawrah) and know what it promises to those who do not fulfill Allaah’s commandments.

[أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ]

(Have you then no sense) of what you are doing to yourselves, so that you might become aware of your slumber and restore your sight from blindness.” ‘Abdur-Razzaq said that Ma’mar stated that Qatadah commented o­n Allaah’s statement,

[أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ]

(Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and every act of obedience to Allaah) on the people and you forget (to practise it)yourselves,) “The Children of Israel used to command people to obey Allaah, fear Him and perform Al-Birr. Yet, they contradicted these orders, so Allaah reminded them of this fact.” As-Suddi said similarly. Ibn Jurayj said that the Ayah:

[أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ]

(Enjoin you Al-Birr o­n the people) “Is about the People of the Book and the hypocrites. They used to command people to pray and fast. However, they did not practice what they commanded others. Allaah reminded them of this behavior. So whoever commands people to do righteousness, let him be among the first of them to implement that command.” Also, Muhammad bin Ishaq narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas said that,

[وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ]

(And you forget yourselves,) means, “You forget to practice it yourselves,

[وَأَنتُمْ تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَـبَ أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ]

(While you recite the Scripture (Tawrah)! Have you then no sense) You forbid the people from rejecting the prophethood and the covenant that you have mentioned with you in the Tawrah, while you yourselves have forgoten it, meaning that ‘you have forgotten the covenant that I made with you that you will accept My Messenger. You have breeched My covenant, and rejected what you know is in My Book.’ ”

Therefore, Allaah admonished the Jews for this behavior and alerted them to the wrongs that they were perpetrating against themselves by ordering righteousness, yet refraining themselves from righteousness. We should state that Allaah is not criticizing the People of the Book for ordering righteousness, because enjoining good is a part of righteousness and is an obligation for the scholars. However, the scholar is himself required to heed, and adhere to, what he invites others to. For instance, Prophet Shu`ayb said,

[وَمَآ أُرِيدُ أَنْ أُخَالِفَكُمْ إِلَى مَآ أَنْهَـكُمْ عَنْهُ إِنْ أُرِيدُ إِلاَّ الإِصْلَـحَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ وَمَا تَوْفِيقِى إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ]

(I wish not, in contradiction to you, to do that which I forbid you. I o­nly desire reform to the best of my power. And my guidance cannot come except from Allaah, in Him I trust and unto Him I repent.) (11:88).

Therefore, enjoining righteousness and performing righteousness are both required. Neither category is rendered not necessary by the practice of the other, according to the most correct view of the scholars among the Salaf (predecessors) and the Khalaf.

Imam Ahmad reported that Abu Wa’il said, “While I was riding behind Usamah, he was asked, ‘Why not advise ‘Uthman?’ He said, ‘Do you think that if I advise him, I should allow you to hear it? I advise him in secret, and I will not start something that I would hate to be the first to start. I will not say to a man, ‘You are the best man,’ even if he was my leader, after what I heard from the Messenger of Allaah.’ They said, ‘What did he say?’ He said, “I heard him say,

«يُجَاءُ بِالرَّجُلِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامةِ فَيُلْقَى فِي النَّار فَتَنْدَلِقُ بِه أَقْتَابُهُ فيَدُورُ بِهَا فِي النَّار كَمَا يَدُورُ الْحِمَارُ بِرَحَاهُ فيُطِيفُ بِهِ أَهْلُ النَّار فَيَقُولُون: يَا فُلَانُ ما أَصَابَكَ؟ أَلَمْ تَكُنْ تَأْمُرُنَا بِالْمَعْرُوف وَتَنْهَانَا عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ؟ فَيَقُولُ: كُنْتُ آمرُكُمْ باِلْمَعْرُوفِ وَلَا آتِيهِ وَأَنْهَاكُمْ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَآتِيه»

(A man will be brought o­n the Day of Resurrection and thrown in the Fire. His intestines will fall out and he will continue circling, pulling them behind him, just as the donkey goes around the pole. The people of the Fire will go to that man and ask him, ‘What happened to you? Did you not used to command us to do righteous acts and forbid us from committing evil?’ He will say, ‘Yes. I used to enjoin righteousness, but refrained from performing righteousness, and I used to forbid you to perform from evil while I myself did it.’).”

This Hadith was also recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim. Also, Ibrahim An-Nakha`i said, “I hesitate in advising people because of three Ayat:

[أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ]

(Enjoin you Al-Birr o­n the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves).

[يأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لاَ تَفْعَلُونَ - كَبُرَ مَقْتاً عِندَ اللَّهِ أَن تَقُولُواْ مَا لاَ تَفْعَلُونَ ]

(O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is to Allaah that you say that which you do not do.) (61:2-3).”

And Allaah informed us that the Prophet Shu`ayb said,

[وَمَآ أُرِيدُ أَنْ أُخَالِفَكُمْ إِلَى مَآ أَنْهَـكُمْ عَنْهُ إِنْ أُرِيدُ إِلاَّ الإِصْلَـحَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ وَمَا تَوْفِيقِى إِلاَّ بِاللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ]

(I wish not, in contradiction to you, to do that which I forbid you. I o­nly desire reform to the best of my power. And my guidance cannot come except from Allaah, in Him I trust and unto Him I repent.) (11:88).

Abdullah ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu) said:

One day, I was behind the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) so he said to me: “O young man, I am going to teach you some words.

Be mindful of Allah, and He will protect you.
Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him facing you.
If you ask, then ask of Allah.
If you seek aid, then seek aid in Allah.

Know that if the entire Ummah were to gather in order to benefit you with something, they could not benefit you with anything except with that which Allah has written for you. And if the entire Ummah were to gather in order to harm you with something, they could not harm you with anything except with what Allah has written against you. The pen has been lifted and the pages have dried.”

[at-Tirmidhi - Stated as Hadith Hasan Sahih]

And in another narration of at-Tirmidhi:

Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you.
Become acquainted with Allah in prosperity and He will become acquainted with you in adversity.
Know that whatever surpassed you was not going to reach you, and whatever reached you was not going to surpass you.
Know that help comes with patience, relief with affliction, and hardship with ease.”

“Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children.  (It is) like a rain (Ghayth), thereof the growth is pleasing to the tiller; afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow; then it becomes straw.  But in the Hereafter (there is) a severe torment, and (there is) forgiveness from Allah and (His) pleasure.  And the life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment.” [57:20]

“Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was a true Muslim Hanifa (Islamic Monotheism – to worship none but Allah Alone) and he was not of Al-Mushrikoon.” (The Noble Quran 3:67)

“By Him (Allah) in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and the Christians (of these present nations) who hears about me and then dies without believing in the Message with which I have been sent (i.e. tawheed), but he will be from the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire.” (Saheeh Muslim, vol. 1, no. 284)

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (The Noble Qur’an 3:85)

Ibn Taymeeyah in Al-Jawaabus-Saheeh Liman Baddala Deenal-Maseeh (The Correct Respo nse for those who Altered the Religion of ‘Eessa) [Riyaadh, KSA: Daarul 'Aasimah, 1414/1993] vol. 2, pp. 212-213.

“As to whether Jews and Christians of our times are from the People of the Book or not, one first should understand what the term “People of the Book” means. It means that original Books were revealed to their prophets, Musa and ‘Eessa, respectively. When they held to the beliefs of ‘Eessa and Musa, they were not kuffaar. However, when they continued to believe in the altered and abrogated forms of these Books and commit shirk, they because kuffaar, even though they are still referred to as “People of the Book”. Allah knew they would alter the Books and warned them against that. He still refers to them in the Qur’an as “People of The Book,” and clearly states that they have committed kufr and deviated from the path of tawheed which their prophets called them to adhere to.”

    One of the preachers in one of the mosques in Europe claimed that it is not allowed to consider Jews and Christians disbelievers. You know – may Allaah preserve you – that most of the people who attend the mosques in Europe have very little knowledge. We fear that statements like this one will become widespread. Therefore, we request from you a complete and clear answer to this question.

THE MEANING OF WORSHIP: [1]

The statement of Allaah, the Most High:

“I did not create the Jinn, nor mankind, except to worship Me.” [Sooratudh-Dhaariyaat 51:56]

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H) – rahimahullaah – said:

“Worship (al-’Ibaadah) is obedience to Allaah by following that which He ordered upon the tongues of His Messengers.” He also said, “Worship (al-’Ibaadah) is a comprehensive term covering everything that Allaah loves and is pleased with – whether saying, or actions, outward and inward.” [2] [1] Fathul-Majeed li-Sharh Kitaabit-Tawheed (1/84-90)
