The Means of Increasing One's Eemaan by Shaykh Khalid 'Uthmaan al-Misree

On the authority of ‘Abdullaah Ibn ‘Amr al-‘Aas, The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,

“Indeed Eemaan is worn out inside one of you just like a thawb (garment) is worn out, so ask Allaah to revive Eemaan in your hearts.”

The lofty rank and high station eemaan possesses is not something obscure, as it is unquestionably the most important duty as well as being the most imperative of all obligations. It is also the greatest and most glorious of them. All the good in the world and the Hereafter is dependent upon the presence of eemaan and on its soundness and integrity.

Eemaan holds such a multitude of benefits, ripe fruits, delicious produce, constant food and continual goodness.

It is within this context that those certain folk embarked upon and competed with each other in directing their attention to trying to actualize and fulfill eemaan. For the Muslim who is granted the tawfeeq, his concern for his eemaan is greater than any other concern he may have – and this must be so. When this became evident to the Salaf of this Ummah, the first and best of this Ummah, their concern for their eemaan was very eminent and the attention they gave to it was enormous.

They, may Allaah be pleased and have mercy upon them, used to tend to their eemaan, inspect their actions, and give each other advice. Reports of this nature from the Salaf are numerous. Some of their statements include:

‘Umar Ibn al-Khattaab (radhiyAllaahu ‘anhu) used to say to his companions: “Come on, so that we may increase our eemaan”.

Aboo Dardaa’(radhiyAllaahu ‘anhu) used to say: “It is from the intelligence of the servant to know whether he is increasing or decreasing, and indeed, it is from the intelligence of the servant to know how, where and when the whispers of shaytaan appear to him.”

‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn ‘Amr al-Awzaa’ee (rahimahullaah) was asked about eemaan: “Does it increase?” He replied, “Yes, until it becomes like mountains. He was then asked, “Does it decrease?” He answered, “Yes, up until there is nothing left of it.” [Causes Behind the Increase and Decrease of Eemaan by Shaykh 'Abdur-Razzaak al-'Abbaad from AbdurRahman.org]

Thus, it can be seen that the matter of eemaan is a tremendous affair, which each one of us must pay close attention to.

Our Shaykh Khalid ‘Uthmaan (hafidhahullaah) will admonish us concerning this crucial topic and explain to us the ways in which we can increase our eemaan and by the Permission of Allaah we will all act upon the advices offered and thus have our eemaan renewed and increased.

We ask Allaah to grant us all lasting eemaan, true certainty and beneficial knowledge.

In the well-known hadeeth of Jibreel, the angel Jibreel (‘alayhis salaam) asked the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to tell him about eemaan (belief). The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,

“It is to believe in Allaah, His angels, His books, His messengers and the Last Day. And to believe in the qadar, the good of it and the evil of it.” [Muslim]

So to believe in the revealed books is from the six pillars of eemaan that is compulsory for every Muslim to have faith in.

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) stated.

“And belief in the [Revealed] Books comprises four things:

Firstly: That we believe that Allaah, the Most High, sent down books upon the Messengers, and that they are from Allaah. However, we do not believe that the books [currently] present in the possession of these nations are the [very] books that are from Allaah, because they are distorted, changed. However, we believe the original revealed Book [sent down to] the Messenger is truly from Allaah.

Secondly: That we believe in the correctness of what is in them (i.e. the revealed books in general) of information (akhbaar), like (for example) the information in the Qur’aan and the information in what has not undergone distortion or change from the previous books.

Thirdly: That we believe in what they contain of rulings (ahkaam), when they (the rulings) do not oppose our Sharee’ah, [based] upon the [particular] viewpoint that the legislation of those who preceded us is also a legislation for us, and that is the truth.

Fourthly: That we believe in what we know of their names, such as “The Qur’aan” (the Recital), “the Tawrat” (the Torah), “the Injeel” (the Gospel), “the Zaboor (Scrolls) [of Dawud]”, “the Suhuf (Scrolls)” of Ibraaheem, and “the Suhuf (Scrolls)” of Moosaa.

And if a man was to say: I do not believe that there is a book called “Tawraat“, then he is a disbeliever, because faith in Allaah comprises faith in the Books.” [Source: "Mu'jam at-Ta'reefaat wad-Dawaabit wat-Taqseemaat wal-Fawaa'id Fil-Musannafaat al-I'itqaadiyyah Lish-Shaykh Ibn al-Uthaymeen", pp. 94-95. Taken from www.aqidah.com]

Our Shaykh, ‘Abdul Wasee’ as-Sa’eedi  (hafidhahullaah) will enlighten us concerning the intricacies regarding the revealed Books and inform us of what it necessitates by bringing the relevant evidences from the Qur’aan and Sunnah.

We ask Allaah to increase us in beneficial knowledge and protect us from knowledge that does not benefit.

~ Beware of the Prophets Family Tree – Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen [Video|Ar-En]

Beware of the “Prophets’ Family Tree”
By Shaykh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah)

 And the author; may Allah have mercy upon him, brings the benefit in his statement: “From Nuh to Muhammad”, that Adam was not a Messenger. And that which has been mentioned that Idris is the grandfather of Nuh is a lie, because Idris did not come before Nuh. Idris came after him. And what is apparent, and Allah knows best, is he was from the children of Israel.

Thus whoever alleges that Idris was the grandfather of Nuh has lied and opposed the Quran and the Sunnah.

﴿إِنّا أوْحيْنا إِليْك كما أوْحيْنا إِلىٰ نوحٍ والنّبِيِّين مِنْ بعْدِهِ ﴾ النساء:163

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the Prophets after him.
(Soorah An Nisa 4:163)

And beware of the tree, the family tree of the Prophets, it is written, and sometimes it is sold, and it is wide spread. It is written (on this tree) that Idris is before Nuh. This is a lie and it is obligatory upon the one who sees this to tear it because it will cause the Aqeedah of the Muslims to take a dangerous turn. It will alter the Aqeedah of the Muslims to believe that Nuh was preceded by a Messenger. And this is a lie. And in the Quran (the verse appears)

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the Prophets after him.
(Soorah An Nisa 4:163)

And in the Quran also:

﴿ولقدْ أرْسلْنا نوحًا وإِبْراهِيم وجعلْنا فِي ذرِّيّتِهِما النّبوّة والْكِتاب﴾[ الحديد:26]

And indeed, We sent Nuh and Ibrahim, and placed in their offspring Prophethood and Scripture
(Soorah Al Hadid 57:26)

In their offspring, thus it is not possible that there exist Prophethood and Scripture before Nuh. And in the Sunnah; the people will come to Nuh on the Day of Judgment and say to him: You are the first Messenger that Allah sent.

Abu Hurayrah (radhiallahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam) said:

Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him say what is righteous or keep silent.
Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him be kind to his neighbor.
And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him be generous to his guest.

[Saheeh Muslim]

Ibn `Umar and `Aishah (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said,

 “Jibril kept recommending treating neighbours with kindness until I thought he would assign a share of inheritance”.

the tree of faithAllah, the Exalted says, Do you not see how Allah sets forth a metaphor of a good word: a good tree whose roots are firm and whose branches are in the sky? It bears fruit all the time by its Lord’s permission. Allah sets forth metaphors for people so that hopefully they will pay heed.” [Ibrahim (14): 24-25]

Allah has likened the statement of faith, which is the best of statements, with a tree that is the best of trees bearing these noble characteristics. Its roots are firm, it is always growing and maturing and it bears fruit all the time, directing its numerous benefits and delectable fruits to its owner and others.

This tree varies greatly in the hearts of the believers, changing in accordance to the variation of the qualities that Allah has described it with. Therefore it is upon the servant to hasten towards acquiring knowledge about it, its descriptions, that which leads to its existence and potency, its roots and its branches. It is upon him to expend his efforts in actualizing this tree in terms of knowledge and action for indeed his portion of goodness and success, happiness in this life and the Hereafter, is dependant upon the extent to which this tree [is implanted in his heart].

On the authority of Aboo ‘Amr, though others call him Aboo ‘Amrah Sufyaan bin ‘Abdullaah (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said: I said: “O Messenger of Allaah, tell me something about Islaam which I could not ask anyone about save you.” He answered: «Say: ‘I believe in Allaah,’ and then stand firm and steadfast» [Saheeh Muslim]

“Verily, those who say: `Our Rubb is Allah (Alone),’ and then they stand firm, on them the angels will descend (at the time of their death) (saying): ‘Fear not, nor grieve! But receive the glad tidings of Jannah which you have been promised! We have been your friends in the life of this world and are (so) in the Hereafter. Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask. An entertainment from (Allah), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”‘ (41:30-32)

Verily, those who say: `Our Rubb is (only) Allah,’ and thereafter stand firm and straight (on the Islamic Faith of Monotheism), on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Such shall be the dwellers of Jannah, abiding therein (forever), – a reward for what they used to do.” (46:13,14)
