Shaykh Ibn Baaz and the Hungry Students [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]


May Allah the Most High have mercy upon this great scholar. Look at our ‘Ulamah and their soft-hearted mind in terms of sharing and caring. The question that you should ask yourself is: Would you do the same?

~ Are our Actions Accepted or Rejected? by Shaykh Fawzan [Mp3|Ar-En]

Are our Actions Accepted or Rejected?
by Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah)

Don’t Be Sure That Your Actions Are Accepted

The noble Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq Ibn Abdil-Muhsin al-Badr (may Allaah preserve them both) stated:

“It is befitting that we make note that the Muslim has no way of being sure that his actions are accepted no matter how well or good he has done in performing the action. Allaah has mentioned, clarifying the state and affair of the complete believers during the performance of actions by which they seek nearness to Allaah from the acts of obedience:

“And those who give that which they give with their hearts full of fear  because they are sure they are to return to their Lord.” (Soorah Mu-minoon: 60)

This means that they give from themselves that which they are commanded with from the acts of worship from Salaah, Zakaah, Hajj, Siyaam (Fasting) and other than that. They are in fear that their actions will not save them or that their acts of worship will not be accepted when their actions are being presented to Allaah and they have to stand in front of Allaah.

Imaam Ahmad mentions in his Musnad on the authority of The Mother of The Believers Aaishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) stated:

“I said: Oh Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) Allaah has said:

“And those who give that which they give with their hearts full of fear  because they are sure they are to return to their Lord.”  (Soorah Mu-minoon: 60)

Is it the man who commits Zinaa (fornication/adultery) and consumes intoxicants? He (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: No oh daughter of Abee Bakr/ No oh daughter of as-Siddeeq. However he is the man who fast, prays and gives charity and yet he fears that it wont be accepted from him.

The Salaf worked diligently in perfecting their actions and making them faultless, then after that, they showed great concern for acceptance of their actions. They did this because they feared that their actions would be rejected. They are those who gave what was incumbent upon them while their hearts were in a state of fear.

It is reported that ‘Ali bin Abi Taleb said:

Be more concerned that your actions are accepted than your concern of performing the action itself.

Did you not hear the statement of Allaah: Verily Allaah only accepts the actions of the Mutaqeen (pious)

Malik bin Dinar said: Fear that an action is not accepted is more difficult than performing the action itself.

Some Salaf used to say:

The people of the past would supplicate 6 months to Allaah to allow them to reach the month of Ramadan, and then upon completion of the month, they would again supplicate 6 months (begging) for acceptance of their fast.

~ Be thankful for Allah's Blessings – Story of the Leper, the Bald Man and the Blind Man – Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen [Mp3|Ar-En]

Story of the Leper, the Bald Man and the Blind Man
Shaykh ibn Uthaymin (rahimahullaah)
Audio Courtesy: http://mtws.posterous.com

Listen / Download Mp3: (Duration: 16:18)

And [remember] when your LORD proclaimed “If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings), but if you are thankless (i.e. disbelievers), verily! My Punishment is indeed severe.” (Ibrahim 14:7)

‘As a Favour from Us, thus do We reward him who gives thanks (by obeying Us).’ (Al-Qamar 54:35)

Verily, your Lord is full of Grace for mankind, yet most of them do not give thanks.” (An-Naml 27:73)

Read the Story mentioned in the audio @ Story of the Leper, the Bald Man and the Blind Man

Allah , says:

And truly, if We give him a taste of mercy from Us, after some adversity has touched him, he is sure to say: This is for me; I think not that the Hour will be established, but if I am brought back to my Lord, surely, there will be for me the best with Him. Then, We verily, will show to the disbelievers what they have done and We shall make them taste a severe torment” (Qur’an 41:50)

In this verse, Allah , Most Glorified, Most High, informs us when He blesses the disbelieving man or the doubter with health, well-being and wealth, after being afflicted with sickness, poverty or loss, he will not be thankful to his Rabb, but instead will boast that it is his right upon Allah . Then He , Most High, makes clear that the reason for this is his doubt in the reality of the Day of Judgement and all that it entails, including the Resurrection and the Gathering and that in his ignorance and stupidity, he exceeds even this, for he believes that should it prove that the Hereafter is a reality, he will find great blessings with his Rabb.

Then Allah warns him that he will be shown his deeds and that he will be held to account for them on that Day and he will receive a terrible punishment.

Benefits Derived From This Verse

1. That good and evil are by Allah’s Decree.

3. Confirmation of the establishment of the Hour.

Relevance of This Verse to the Subject of Tawheed

  • That it forbids attributing blessings to other than Allah , because to do so is to set up partners with Him, Most High, in Rabbship.

~ The Etiquettes of 'Eid and Zakat ul Fitr – Shaykh 'Ubayd al-Jaabiree [Mp3|Ar-En]

Bismillaah wa -Alhamdulillaah wa Salaatu wa Salaam ‘alaa Rasulillaah ‘amma ba’d

Muwahhideen Publications in conjunction with al-Ibaanah.info of Germany organized a LIVE Tele-Lecture with the Noble Shaykh al-Waalid al-Allaamah ‘Ubayd ibn ‘Abdillaah al-Jaabiree (May Allaah Preserve Him), from the major scholars of Madinah, Saudi Arabia on the etiquettes of ‘Eid ul Fitr and Zakat ul Fitr, on Saturday 12th August, 2012. This event was broadcast LIVE in Masjid Ibn ‘Abbaas, Tobago, two masaajid in Trinidad, Masjid ul Khaleefah and Masjid us Sunnah, and four Masaajid in the U.S. Masjid Al-Bukhaari, Florida, Masjid Ibn ‘Abbas, Georgia and Masjid Uthaymeen, New Jersey, and Masjid Nur Allaah, NY.

This lecture event was translated afterwards into English.

Listen/Download 44:45 mins. (Arabic & English)

Our Shaykh ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree (hafidhahullaah) started off by making du’a that Allaah, The Lord of The Mighty Throne complete this month for us, keep us upon the Straight Path and keep us upon rushing to do what is good and racing one another in all permissible actions for as long as we live.

Though short, the Shaykh’s talk was full of much benefit. He spoke about the virtues of the last ten of Ramadhaan and the superiority of the last ten nights in particular. He went on to mention some benefits from the tafseer of Suraat al-Qadr, encouraging us to seek out that precious night i.e Laylatul Qadr and narrated to us that due to the eminence of this night, some of the salaf would make ghusl, wear their best clothing and perfume themselves in anticipation of it

Next he touched on some of the intricacies of Zakaatul Fitr and went on to explain the reasons for its various names. The Shaykh also addressed the important issue of giving Zakaatul Fitr in the form of money and its ruling according to the Shari’ah.

The lecture continued with the Shaykh explaining the matters of the etiquettes of ‘Eid and Zakaatul Fitr.
