The Disease of Seeking Fame & Status – by Shaykh Muhammad al-Imaam [Audio|Ar-En]

The Disease of Seeking Fame & Status - by Shaykh Muhammad al-Imaam

Listen / Download Mp3 Here (Time 31:47)

An unfortunate disease that has plagued many of the Muslims today is that of seeking to obtain fame and status through the knowledge one has acquired or the desire to be put in the spotlight or in a leadership position.

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) gave us a stern warning against this dangerous ambition.

He, (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), said “If anyone acquires knowledge of things by which Allaah’s good pleasure is sought, but acquires it only to get some worldly advantage, he will not experience the arf i.e. the odour of Paradise.” [Reported by Ahmad (2/338), Abu Daawood (3664), and others from Abu Hurayrah radiAllaahu ‘anhu. Authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaanee in Saheehul-Jaami (6159)]

In another narration the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) warned us by saying: “Do not learn the knowledge to amaze/stupefy by it the scholars, nor to delight against the foolish by it, nor to possess the gatherings by it. Whosoever does so, then the Fire, the fire.” [Reported by Abu Hurayrah in al-Faqeeh wal-Mutafaqqih of Khateeb al-Baghdaadee (2/88).]

And in yet another severe warning, the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said “…So the first to be summoned will be a man who learned knowledge and taught it and read the Qur’an. He will come with it and favours to him will be made known to him and he will recognise it. It will be said: What have you done by it? ‘He will say: ‘I studied the knowledge and taught it and recited for You the Qur’an. It will be said:

‘You have lied. Rather you studied the knowledge so that it would be said of you: ‘a scholar’ and you recited the Qur’an so it would be said of you: ‘a reciter.’ And that was said. Then he will be commanded and would be dragged on his face until he is thrown into the Fire… [Narrated by Muslim, an-Nasaaee (6/23-24), Ahmad (2/322) and others, from Abu Hurayrah.]

From the sayings of the salaf, it is reported that there was a young man who was from the people of knowledge who used to put himself forward, speak and behave haughtily with his knowledge in front of those older than him. This angered Sufyân [Ath-Thawrî] and he said, “The Salaf were never like this; they never used to claim leadership, or sit at the head of the gathering until they had sought this knowledge for thirty years, and you act haughty in front of those who are older than you. Get up, I never want to see you even come close to my circle.” [Al-Bayhaqi, Al-Madkhal ila Al-Sunan Al-Kubra 2:74.]

These narrations vividly illustrate the catastrophic outcome of insincerity in seeking knowledge and the dislike of seeking to be known and putting oneself forward.

Our Shaykh Muhammad al Imaam (hafidhahullaah) will delve into the issue of this disease of seeking fame and status which is of extreme importance to familiarize ourselves with so that we may safeguard ourselves from it.

We ask Allaah to unite us upon the haqq and to call to its pure teachings and save us from the differing and discord amongst ourselves.

Glad Tidings To The Patient Ones – by Shaykh ‘Abdul’Azeez al-Bura’ee [Audio|Ar-En]

Glad Tidings To The Patient Ones by Shaykh 'Abdul'Azeez al-Bura'ee

Bismillah wa -Alhamdulillah wa Salaatu wa Salaam ‘alaa Rasulillah ‘amma ba’d

Muwahhideen Publications has organized a LIVE tele-lecture on Sunday 25th August 2013 with Ash Shaykh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez Ibn Yahya al-Bura’ee (May Allah Preserve Him), from the well-known mashaayikh and senior scholars of Yemen.

The Shaykh was labelled, the insightful criticizer, by his Shaykh, the reviver of our time, ash-Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Haadee al-Waadi’ee (rahimahullah), and what a befitting name it is for Shaykh ‘Abdul’Azeez, who is known for his deep insight into the religion and its intricate affairs, jazaaAllaahu khayran.

Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullah) said, Allah (Subhaanahu) mentions Sabr (patience) in the Qur’aan in 90 places.”

Allah (Ta’aala) says,

“O you who believe! Endure and be more patient…” [Soorah ‘Aali ‘Imraan: 200]

“And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirun (the patient)”.  [Soorah al-Baqarah: 155]

“Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning.” [Soorah az-Zumar: 10]

“Seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer). Truly, Allah is with As-Sabirun (the patient).” [Soorah al-Baqarah: 153]

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) reported that: Certain people of the Ansar asked the Messenger ofAllah (sallAllahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and he gave them; then they again asked him and he gave them until all what he possessed was exhausted. Then the Prophet (sallAllahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whatever wealth I have, I will not withhold from you. Whosoever would be chaste and modest; Allah will keep him chaste and modest and whosoever would seek self-sufficiency, Allah will make him self-sufficient; and whosoever would be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience”. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Our Shaykh ‘Abdul ‘Azeez al-Bura’ee (hafidhahullah) will clarify to us the affair regarding this ever-pertinent matter of having patience and by the Permission of Allah, this reminder will provide some solace to our hearts and renew our resolve to carry on.

We ask Allah to make us from those who, when they are given, are thankful; when they are tested, are patient; and when they sin, seek forgiveness.

Do Not Be A Humazatul Lumazah (The Scandal Mongering Backbiter) – Abu Abdis Salaam Siddiq Al Juyaanee [Audio|Eng]

Do Not Be A Humazatul Lumazah (The Slanderer)

Tafsir of 104. Surah Al-Humazah

By Abu ‘Abdis Salaam Siddiq Al Juyaanee
(Khutbah given at Masjid Al Bukhaari, West Palm Beach, FL)

Listen / Download Mp3 Here (Time 29:25)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

(1. Woe to every Humazah Lumazah.) (2. Who has gathered wealth and counted it.) (3. He thinks that his wealth will make him last forever!) (4. But no! Verily, he will be thrown into Al-Hutamah.) (5. And what will make you know what Al-Hutamah is) (6. The fire of Allah, Al-Muqadah,) (7. Which leaps up over the hearts.) (8. Verily, it shall Mu’sadah upon them,) (9. In pillars stretched forth.)

Al-Hammaz refers to (slander) by speech, and Al-Lammaz refers to (slander) by action. This means that the person finds fault with people and belittles them. An explanation of this has already preceded in the discussion of Allah’s statement, (Hammaz, going about with slander) (68:11) Ibn `Abbas said, “Humazah Lumazah means one who reviles and disgraces (others).” Mujahid said, “Al-Humazah is with the hand and the eye, and Al-Lumazah is with the tongue.”

Then Allah says,

(Who has gathered wealth and counted it.) meaning, he gathers it piling some of it on top of the rest and he counts it up. This is similar to Allah’s saying,

(And collect (wealth) and hide it.) (70:18) This was said by As-Suddi and Ibn Jarir. Muhammad bin Ka`b said concerning Allah’s statement,

(gathered wealth and counted it.) “His wealth occupies his time in the day, going from this to that. Then when the night comes he sleeps like a rotting corpse.” Then Allah says,

(He thinks that his wealth will make him last forever!) meaning, he thinks that gathering wealth will make him last forever in this abode (the worldly life).

(But no!) meaning, the matter is not as he claims, nor as he reckons. Then Allah says,

(Verily, he will be thrown into Al-Hutamah.) meaning, the person who gathered wealth and counted it, will be thrown into Al-Hutamah, which is one of the descriptive names of the Hellfire. This is because it crushes whoever is in it. Thus, Allah says,

(And what will make you know what Al-Hutamah is The fire of Allah, Al-Muqadah, which leaps up over the hearts.) Thabit Al-Bunani said, “It will burn them all the way to their hearts while they are still alive.” Then he said, “Indeed the torment will reach them.” Then he cried. Muhammad bin Ka`b said, “It (the Fire) will devour every part of his body until it reaches his heart and comes to the level of his throat, then it will return to his body.”

(Verily, it shall Mu’sadah upon them.) meaning, covering, just as was mentioned in the Tafsir of Surat Al-Balad (see 90:20). Then Allah says,

(In pillars stretched forth. ) “Atiyah Al-`Awfi said, “Pillars of Iron.” As-Suddi said, “Made of fire.” Al-`Awfi reported from Ibn `Abbas, “He will make them enter pillars stretched forth, meaning there will be columns over them, and they will have chains on their necks, and the gates (of Hell) will be shut upon them.” This is the end of the Tafsir of Surat Al-Humazah, and all praise and thanks are due to Allah.
