Calling to Good Manners Firstly ?- Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan [Video|Ar-En Subtitles]

1. When the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) sent Mu’aath ibn Jabal (may Allaah be pleased with him) to Yemen, he told him:

إنك تقدم على قوم من أهل الكتاب، فليكن أول ما تدعوهم إلى أن يوحدوا الله تعالى، فإذا عرفوا ذلك، فأخبرهم أن الله قد فرض عليهم خمس صلوات في يومهم وليلتهم، فإذا صلوا، فأخبرهم أن الله افترض عليهم زكاة في أموالهم، تؤخذ من غنيهم فترد على فقيرهم، فإذا أقروا بذلك فخذ منهم، وتوق كرائم أموال الناس
“Verily, you are going to a people from Ahlul-Kitaab (i.e. the Jews and Christians), so let the first thing you invite them to be to worship Allaah alone. If they understand that (and accept it), then inform them that Allaah has ordained upon them five daily prayers. If they pray, then inform them that Allaah has ordained upon them the payment of zakaat from their wealth, taken from their rich and given back to their poor. If they agree to that, then take (zakaat) from them, but abstain from the people’s best (most expensive) belongings.” [Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]

From this and many other clear evidences, we learn that the focus and priority of the da’wah of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) was to towheed. Other essential matters of the Religion were presented only after people accept towheed.

This same methodology is also evident from the many Quraanic passages describing the da’wah of Allaah’s Prophets and Messengers. Refer to the book The Methodology of the Prophets in Calling to Allaah by Shaykh Rabee’ ibn Haadee for a more complete discussion of this important topic.

2. Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan, in the above fatwaa, is not saying that good manners in da’wah is not important, nor is he saying that calling the people to good manners is not from Islaamic da’wah. He is merely assisting the Ummah to redirect their focus and priority in giving da’wah back to its original theme — that Allaah has the sole right to be worshipped.

3. Many Muslims today incorrectly assume that, since manners are highly stressed in Islaam, we should make them our priority when giving da’wah. There is a difference between giving da’wah with good manners and beginning one’s da’wah by inviting to good manners.

4. Making good manners the focus and priority of da’wah causes us to resemble the Christians, whose great Prophet and Messenger called them to worship Allaah alone from his very first words after birth, announcing himself as a worshipper of Allaah alone! [Soorah Maryam, 19:30-36] However, you find modern Christians explaining their religion as merely good morals and manners. Not only have they taken towheed out of the priorities of their da’wah, they have removed it from the religion altogether! Muslims must be wise enough to learn from the mistakes of the people who came before us. We must not follow in their footsteps into the traps of Shaytaan.

5. Every Muslim is a daa’ee (caller, one who invites to Islaam), through his/her actions and behavior, and we are all required to implement Islaam properly in our lives and be good examples of Muslims. However, it is not correct to say that any Muslim knows enough to get involved in organized da’wah work and outreach programs. How often we see ignorant Muslims who wish to serve their Religion cause extensive harm and corruption in the name of da’wah! Knowledge must come before this kind of da’wah work. We must shun the corrupt form of “do-it-yourself” da’wah, independent of the scholars of Islaam and their advice and direction.

And Allaah knows best.

Shaykh Fawzaan Destroying 'Muwazaanah' (Mentioning the Good and Bad Points Together) [Video|Ar-En]

Uploaded by abdalla508

And Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan was questioned about the same matter and here is the text:

Q. It has spread amongst the youth today amongst the youth that it is obligatory to counterbalance between to good and bad points/deeds when criticising and so they say: ‘When you criticise such and such person for an innovation and you expose his mistakes, it is necessary for you to mention his good points/deeds – and this is from the perspective of justice and fairness. So is this manhaj (methodology) in criticising correct? And is it necessary for me to mention the good points/deeds when criticising?


When the one who is being criticised is from Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah and his mistakes are in matters which do not relate to ‘aqeedah, then yes… his good points/deeds and exceptional [qualities] are mentioned. His mistakes and slips are overwhelmed by his aid for the Sunnah.

But when the one being criticised is from the People of Misguidance and the People of Deviation and from the People of Destructive and Adulterated Principles, then it is not permissible for us to mention their good points/deeds – when he has good points/deeds – because when we mention them, this deceives the people and makes them hold a good opinion about this strayer or about this innovator or deviant or parisan (one engrossed with party-spirit). So then they accept the ideas of this strayer or this innovator or this biased partisan. And Allaah jalla wa ‘alaa refuted the Disbelievers, the Criminals and the Hypocrites and did not mention any of their good points/deeds. And likewise the Scholars of the Salaf refute the Jahmiyyah and Mu’tazilah and the People of Misguidance and they never mention any of their good points/deeds. This is because their good deeds/points are impaired by their misguidance, disbelief, deviation and hypocrisy. So it is not befitting that you refute a straying wanderer, innovator, deviant and then mention his good points/deeds and that you say he is a good man, he has this and that good deed/point, but he made a mistake! We say to you: Your praise of him is stronger than your his misguidance, because the people will hold on to you praise of him. So when you promote this straying innovator and you praise him then you have deceived the people and this opens up the door for accepting the ideas of those who lead others astray.

A beautiful tele-link lecture delivered by our Shaykh Uthman ibn ‘Abdullaah as-Saalimee (hafidhahullaah) with the brothers at Mpubs in Masjid Ibn ‘Abbaas, Crown Point, Tobago, warning the ummah from the callers to misguidance and falsehood.

The Shaykh, The Muhadith, Abu ‘Abdullaah ‘Uthman ibn ‘Abdullaah as-Saalimee (hafidhahullaah) elaborated on the necessity of following the Sunnah of The Messenger sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and staying away from innovations in the religon. He then explained that staying away from innovations also entails staying away from the innovators and the callers to innovation. The Shaykh brought some beautiful athaar (narrations) from the pious predecessors with regard to them exhausting all efforts to stay away from the likes of these deviants in their time. They went to the extent of blocking their ears when these misguided people would recite an ayahof The Quraan, to prefering their neighbours to be pigs and apes than that of the innovators!

~ The False Statement: "The Dawah in The West is Not in Need of Supervision by The Ulamah" – Shaykh 'Uthmaan As-Saalimee [Audio|Ar-En]

sh-Shaykh ‘Uthmaan As-Saalimee (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the horrendous statement by some individuals that the da’wah in the west is not in need of supervision from the ulamah (scholars).

[Q]: Is it correct to say that the da’wah in the west is not truly in need of the supervision of the scholars from the lands of the Muslimeen because they are ignorant of how affairs are run in the west?

[A]: The Shaykh began his answer by saying that this is an incorrect statement and the one who makes such a claim is in essence accusing the people of knowledge of being ignorant…(listen to the audio ..)

~ [Must Watch] Shaykh Rabee in Kasalaa, Sudan – Funny Short Clip [Video|Ar-En]

Wisdom in Giving Da’wah
Shaykh Rabee bin Hadi Al Madhkhalee

or watch @
Uploaded by abdalla508 on Youtube

Watch the whole video and see the wisdom Allah has given to our noble Shaykh (May Allah preserve him)

Transcription of the above Audio :

Then we travelled to ‘Kassala’ in Sudan.
It was Maasha Allaah.
We did Da’wah there.
We talked and Allaah benefited the people there.
It is a small town, so we visited all of the Masaajid there.
They said :
“There is only one masjid that we have not visited yet.
And it is upon the Tijaanee methodology.
And it is a Masjid that we have never been able to enter.”
Because they are very stubborn.
I said :
“We will go there and ask permission.
If they permit us to speak, we will speak.
If they do not permit us to speak, we will leave.
And that is up to Allaah.
We did not come here with force.”
So we went there and the Imaam led the prayer.
After the prayer, I gave him salaam.
[And said to him] :
“Do you mind if I give a small talk to these brothers?”
So he said : “Go ahead.”
So I spoke, may Allaah bless you, and I called to Allaah.
And I called to Tawheed and I called to the Sunnah and so on.
And at the same time I refuted the mistakes.
And the misguided beliefs that were present.

Until I reached the hadeeth of A’isha where she said:
“3 things, if anyone were to tell them to you, Tthen he has lied upon Allaah a great lie.
Whoever tells you that Muhammad has seen his Lord has lied a great lie upon Allaah.
And whoever says that Muhammad, knows the future, has lied a great lie against Allaah.
And whoever claims that Muhammad did not relate the whole religion to the people has lied against Allaah a great lie.
[Bukhaaree and Muslim]

So he got up and said :
“By Allaah, Muhammad saw his Lord with his own two eyes that are on his head.”
So I said to him :
“May Allaah reward you with good.
As for A’isha, [radiAllaahu anhaa], she is the most knowledgeable of his affairs.
And she said that he did not see his Lord.
And By Allaah, if he had seen his Lord he would have told her.”
He kept on talking, so I said to him :
“Wait until I have finished what I have to say.
And then you can ask whatever you like.
That which I know, I will answer.
That which I do not know, I will tell you : Allah knows best.”
I left him and I continued speaking.
And I was not really sure if he stayed or if he left.
Slowly I heard one of the men in the crowd saying :
“By Allaah, what this ‘Zuul’ is saying is the truth”
Zuul means man, in Sudan.
Slowly he said :
“By Allaah, what this man is saying is the Truth”
I used : “Allaah said….” and “The Messenger of Allaah said….”
May Allaah bless you.
Then the athaan of Isha was called and I finished my speech.
Then the Iqaamah was called.
And the people started pushing me to lead the prayer.
So I said :
“Never, never. The Imaam should lead the prayer.”
They said :
“By Allaah, you lead the prayer!”
So I said “OK” and I led the prayer.
After the prayer, the youth from Ansar us-Sunnah and myself left the masjid.
And I asked :
“Where is the Imaam?”
They said “They kicked him out!”
“Who kicked him out!?”
“His own Jamaa’ah kicked him out!”
By Allaah, this is what happened!
But if one was to come to them with this foolishness and insult them, meaning the Tijaaniyyah, the Burhaaniyyah and so forth, If one was to say this, who would accept it!?
But if you came to them with wisdom and kindness.
May Allaah bless you.
Allaah benefited them!
Allaah benefited them with this!
So O brothers, use beneficial knowledge.
And strong irrefutable evidences.
And beneficial wisdom in your Da’wah.
And it is upon you to have all of the beautiful manners that the Book Of Allaah and the Prophet of Guidance encouraged[Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa sallam]
Because they are the tools of Victory.
And they are the tools of Success.
And believe me when I say that the Sahaabah did not spread Islaam and have it enter into the hearts of the people, except with Wisdom and their character, more then with the sword.
Because the one enters Islam by sword will probably not remain steadfast.
The one who entered Islaam by way of knowledge and evidence….He is the one who will have strong faith.
So it is upon you to follow these good ways.
And it is upon you to be serious about knowledge.
As it is upon you to be serious about giving Da’wah to Allaah.
