Mu’adh (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) took hold of my hand and said:

“O Mu’adh! By Allah I love you, so I advise you to never forget to recite after every prayer:

Allahumma a’innee alaa dhikrika, wa shukrika, wa husni ‘ibaadatika
(O Allah, help me remember You, to be grateful to You, and to worship You in an excellent manner).”
[Abu Dawud]

Commentary:

This Hadith stresses the fact that one should seek the Help of Allah for His remembrance, thanksgiving and worship, because one cannot do anything without His Help and Support. It also shows the superiority of Mu’adh (May Allah be pleased with him) and the Prophet’s love for him.

Swearing by the Qur'an – Shaykh Muhammad al-Imam [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]

Questioner:

“What is the ruling in Islaam for those who swear by the Qur’an?”

Shaykh Muhammad al-Imam (حفظه الله):

“It is permissible to swear by the Noble Qur’an with the majority of the people of knowledge, because the Qur’an is the Speech of Allah and the Speech of Allah is an attribute from the attributes of Allah.

Some of the Salaf disliked swearing by the Noble Qur’an, however it is permissible, although it is more virtuous to swear by Allah from the Attributes of Allah (عز و جل‎). As the Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: ‘By the One in who’s hand is my soul (i.e. Allah عز و جل‎).’ This is better and more appropriate.”

The 2 Conditions of the Acceptance of Any Act of Worhsip – Shaykh al-Wasaabee [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]

Uploaded by DawahSalafiyaah

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahab al-Wasaabee explaining the Hadith of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَنْظُرُ إِلَى صُوَرِكُمْ وَأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَلَكِنْ يَنْظُرُ إِلَى قُلُوبِكُمْ وَأَعْمَالِكُمْ
“Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and actions.”

The 2 conditions are:
1) al-Ikhlaas
2) al-Mutabaa’a

If one of the two, or even both are missing the action of the servant of Allaah becomes corrupt. May Allaah make our actions sincere for Allaah alone in accordance with the Sunnah of our beloved messenger Muhammad, sallAllaahu alahyi wa sallam.

~ Taqwa – Fear of Allaah – Owais Al Hashimi [Audio|En]

Taqwa  (Fear of Allaah)
Owais Al Hashimi (hafidhahullaah)
[Audio|English]


Uploaded by Masjid AsSunnah

The statement of Allaah, the Most High,

O you who believe, have taqwaa (fear) of Allaah, as you should have of Him and do not die except as Muslims. [Soorah Aal-'1mran (3): 102.]

 A man once asked Abu Hurayrah – (رضي الله عنه‏), “What is al-taqwa?”

He replied, “Have you ever taken a path filled with thorns?”

The man replied, “I have.”

Abu Hurayrah asked him, “What did you do?”

He replied, “When I saw a thorn I would dodge it or pass over it or behind it.”

Abu Hurayrah said, “That is al-taqwa.”

[Al-Baihaqi, Al-Zuhd Al-Kabir p351]

The taabi’ee Talq bin Habeeb said: “If an ordeal appears amongst you extinguish it with taqwa.”

When asked what is taqwa, he replied:

“Taqwa is that you act in obedience to Allaah, and hope in His mercy, upon a light from Him; and taqwa is leaving acts of disobedience to Allaah out of fear of Him, upon a light from Him.”

[Related by Ibn Abee Shaybah in Kitaabul-Eemaan (No. 99) and it was declared saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaanee]

It is reported that Abû Al-Dardâ — Allâh be pleased with him — said:

You will never be pious (a person of taqwâ) until you become knowledgeable, and you will never be beautiful with your knowledge until you act [by it].

Ibn Ábd Al-Barr, Jâmi’ Bayân Al-‘Ilm wa Fadlihî article 1239.
Source: http://www.sayingsofthesalaf.net/inde…

Ibn Rajab, rahimaullah, said:

“The essence of taqwaa is to make a shield (which guards) against Allaah’s anger and punishment. That shield is to obey His commandments and abstain from His prohibitions…” [Jaami'ul-'Uloom wal Hikaam: 190/191]

Allaah. the Most High ,says,

0 you who believe! Have taqwaa (fear) of Allaah and believe in His Messenger; and He will bestow upon you a double portion of His Mercy and He will provide you with a light by which you shall walk .[Soorah al-Hadeed (57):28]

0 you who believe, Have taqwaa (fear) of Allaah, He will give you a Furqaan (criterion to judge between right and wrong). [Soorah al-Anfaal (8):29]

~ The Blessing of Allaah Between Thankfulness and Ungratefulness – Shaykh Khalid 'Uthmaan al-Misree [Audio|Ar-En]

The Blessing of Allaah Between Thankfulness and Ungratefulness by Shaykh Khalid 'Uthmaan al-Misree

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

Muwahhideen Publications organized a LIVE tele-lecture on Sunday 6th January, 2013 with the Noble Shaykh, Abu ‘Abdul’Alaa Khalid ‘Uthmaan al-Misree (May Allaah Preserve Him) from the well-known mashaayikh of Egypt. The Shaykh addressed us with some beautiful admonition regarding the necessity of being grateful to Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala).

This session was translated LIVE into English.

Commencing the lecture, Shaykh Khalid ‘Uthmaan al-Misree (hafidhahullaah) first established two important principles related to the blessings of Allaah upon His servants:

  1. It is necessary for every Muslim to believe without any doubt that every blessing whether in one’s deen or dunyaa is from Allaah.
  2. Regardless of how much strength or knowledge the slave is given, he would never be able to enumerate the blessings of Allaah

Upon understanding these two issues, we will realise that showing gratitude to Allaah is from the most tremendous of the acts of worship.

Our Shaykh then went on to define the meaning of gratitude as stated by some of the scholars of the past and further delved into variations of the word in the Arabic language and the meaning that they carry.

He proceeded to explain, as stated by Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah), that gratitude is an act of worship that is only fulfilled when three components are present:

  1. Recognizing the blessings of Allaah in the heart and loving Allaah for His bestowments
  2. Praising and exalting Allaah with the tongue
  3. Seeking the aid of using these blessings in order to perform that which Allaah is pleased with and to refrain from the things that would earn His displeasure

Shaykh Khalid further explained that from the greatest of things that bring a slave closer to his Lord and is from the most certain of reasons for a blessing to be preserved and increased, is the application of the aforementioned components of gratitude. Moreover, since Allaah is Ash-Shakoor (the One Who is Most Grateful), the most beloved of His slaves to Him are those who embody this noble characteristic. Conversely, those who are most abhorred by Him are those who manifest ingratitude.

Next, he delivered some benefits regarding the Name of AllaahAsh-Shakoor, discussed what it means as well as provided us with some examples of the Gratitude of Allaah.

Our Shaykh Abu ‘Abdul ‘Alaa (hafidhahullaah) presented an abundance of proof from the Book of Allaah in explaining the topic at hand as well as provided the statements of our scholars particularly quoting from the works of Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) for this much needed reminder.

We implore our brothers and sisters to listen to this lecture in its entirely in order to seek admonition from the tremendous benefits contained therein.

One of the most beautiful this about the concept of worship in Islaam is the truly unique way in which it incorporates the feelings of love, fear and hope within the hearts of the worshippers of Allah. Understanding how to combine these three qualities into the worship (‘ibaadah) of Allah is one of the most essential things that every Muslim must grasp

And our Righteous Predecessors used to say:

“He who worships Allah with hope only is a Murji’ee. He who worships Him in fear only is a Harooree [Khaarijee]. And he who worships Allah in love only is a Zindeeq [e.g. Soofees, Christians]. But he who worships Allah in fear, love and hope is a Muwahhid Mu’min [a believer upon Tawheed].” [4]

The fear and hope should be in equal proportions[6] but as for love, then that should be uppermost, As Fudayl ibn Iyyaad (d.187H) said: “The love is better than fear. The fear checks us from sinning, and the love makes us to do what is prescribed with an open heart.”[7]

(Read the below link for further understanding of the above statements)

Foot Notes:

[4] Quoted by ibn Rajab in at-Takhweef minan-Naar as the saying of one of the Salaf.

[5] Saheeh – Reported by Aboo Hurairah & collected in Aboo Daawood (eng. trans. vol.3 p.1365 no.4883). Authenticatd by al-Albaanee in Saheehul-Jaami (4455).

[6] This was the opinion of most of the Salaf. Al-Fudayl ibn ‘Iyyaad said that when one is healthy and well, then fear should predominate, but when terminally ill then hope should predominate – so that one should strive to do good when well and not despair of Allah’s Mercy when terminally ill. [At-Takhweef minan-Naar].

[7] Reported in at-Takhweef minan-Naar of Ibn Rajab. Note that some scholars hold that fear is better than love. Allah knows best.
