~ The Path to Paradise – Shaykh Zayd Al-Madkhalee [Video|Ar-En]

The questioner says: May Allaah treat you well; what is the path that will lead me to Paradise, from amongst these methodologies, paths, and parties within the Islamic world?


The way out from that is to cling to the Book of Allaah with the correct understanding and to the Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ. He who does not have knowledge of that then let him go to the people of knowledge, ask them and benefit from them so that he may traverse upon the path of truth in the life of action (i.e. this worldly life), upon clear insight; in order that me may come to Allaah with the best provision.


Is there any advice to these groups?


The reality of Al-Islaam is not affirmed except with one Jamaa’ah; those who unites upon acknowledgement of the Truth, acting upon it, and calling to it. The Truth is that which has come within the Book of Allaah and the authentic Sunnah  of Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ; likewise, that which the scholars who traverse upon the methodology of the Salaf propagate. For the Prophet ﷺ, when he mentioned the Hadeeth of Al-Iftiraaq (i.e. splitting of the Ummah) said:

“This Ummah will be divided into 73 groups; 72 in the Fire and one in Paradise.”

They (i.e. the companions) said: “Who are they, O Messenger of Allaah?” He ﷺ said:

“The Jamaa’ah.”

What is intended by the Jamaa’ah is those who unite upon the truth; knowing it, acting upon it in all of their affairs, and calling the people to it; and holding fast to it until their Lord sends to them the certainty (i.e. death). He said on another occasion:

“The saved sect is the one upon the likes of which I and my companions are upon today.”

So he who is upon the guidance of the Book of Allaah and the authentic Sunnah of Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ then he is from the Jamaa’ah; even if he is only one individual, then he is the Jamaa’ah. All the praise is for Allaah; Allaah’s Messenger gave us glad tidings with his statement:

“There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah, victorious upon the truth. They will not be harmed by those who forsake them, nor by those who oppose them until the command of Allaah comes and whilst they are in that state.”

They are the Jamaa’ah. Cling to the Book and the Sunnah with the correct understanding.  That which is other than that from the groups which oppose the beliefs and the methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, whether the opposition is a complete opposition or a partial opposition, each of them has deviated from the truth; whether that is a total deviation, like the people of Shirk and Kufr, or it is a deviation which is less than that, such as he who has fallen into innovation from the people of Al-Islaam and has brought harm upon himself and has harmed others. Such as the callers to the partisan groups in their various types from this group or that group. And this is not befitting for those whom Allaah the Mighty and Majestic has honored by (guiding them to) the Straight Path; the Magnificent Book and the Pure Sunnah. And Allaah knows best.

[] Sincerity with the Scholars and the Sunnah – By Abu Khadeejah [Audio|En]

Sincerity with the Scholars and the Sunnah
By Abu Khadeejah ‘Abdul-Waahid

A tremendous lecture delivered in Toronto (2002) during the first summer seminar. Our noble brother, Abu Khadeejah spoke upon the topic of being sincere with the Sunnah and since with the Scholars, the inheritors of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

From ’Awf Ibn Maalik (radiyallaahu ’anhu) who said that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘‘The Jews will split into seventy-one sects, so one will be in Paradise and seventy will be in the Fire. And the Christians will split into seventy-two sects, so seventy-one will be in the Fire, and one will be in Paradise. Any by the One in whose Hand the soul of Muhammad is, my Ummah shall split into seventy-three sects, and one will be in Paradise and seventy-two will be in the Fire.’’ It was said: ‘Who are they O Messenger of Allaah?’ He said: ‘‘The Jamaa’ah.’’ [1]

From Mu’aawiyah (radiyallaahu ’anhu) who said: I heard the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying: ‘‘There shall always remain a group from my Ummah, upholding the affair of Allaah, not being harmed by those who seek to mislead them, nor by those who oppose them, until the Command of Allaah comes and they are upon that.’’ [2]

Regarding the common dispute about the correct path, Aboo Khadeejah states, “…The people think this is just an academic argument between the Salafees and other than the Salafees. They believe it is just a matter of words, a sect called salafiyyah fighting against all of the other sects. This is from the greatest of confusions that the people try to spread; rather the reality of the matter is that this is an issue of Jannah (Paradise) and Naar (Hell-Fire). And it is an issue of the hold of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), it is an issue of drinking from the lake of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), it is an issue of earning the love of the Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) on Youmul-Kiyyamah (the day of judgment) and Him (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) not turning away from you, for if He (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) turns away from you then know assuredly that Allaah will turn away from you.  For anyone who harms the Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) then Allaah is angry with him. So we say that us warning the people, warning them from those matters which oppose the Religion is not just a matter of academics, but rather it is a matter of preserving the ummah and what this ummah is upon… It is not a matter of academics; it is a matter of salvation of one’s soul.”

From the Topics Discussed:

  • Respect for the ’Ulamaa
  • The position of the ‘Ulamaa in Islaam
  • A Group upon the Truth in every Generation
  • Putting the Madhhab before the Sunnah, The root of Hizbiyyah (partisanship)
  • Formation of groups and parties, a greater destruction that madhhabiyyah
  • Dispelling the arguments of the people of hizbiyyah
  • The salafiyyeen connect the people to the books of the Salaf, the people of party-spirit connect the people to ‘supposed’ current affairs (magazines, newspapers etc.)
  • The corrupt tahazzub of the hizbiyyeen, their praise for those who admire them and their extreme hatred for those who call the people to the ‘Ulamaa
  • The introspective characteristic of the salafiyyeen as opposed to the false attribution of pride at the hands of the hizbiyyeen
