Shaikh Muhammad Amaan on the Saudi State

Shaikh Muhammand Amaan Al-Jaami (rahimahullah ) said:

“We neither live in this country under parliamentary majority rule in which is found numerous partisan parties nor do we live under a dictator who rules by the sword; neither are we ruled by an individual nor by a group…..we are ruled by the Laws of Allaah. The rulers of this country are only considered to be authorities who implement (the Islamic laws) and they are not considered to be those who have authority over the Islamic laws. There cannot be found among us those who have authority over the Islamic law and its existence is not permissible; rather it is not permissible to find among the muslims those who have authority over the Islamic laws–who legislate alongside Allaah. We rule by the laws of Allaah in this country and this is something well known, even to the man who works in the market…

The Ruling on Wedding Rings – Sh.Al-Albany, Sh.bin Baz and Sh.ibn ul-Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The origin of the wedding ring emanates from an old practice of the christians whereby the groom would place the ring on the left-hand thumb of the bride and say, “in the name of the father”, then he would move it across to the index finger and say, “in the name of the son”, then he woud move it across to the middle finger and say, “in the name of the holy ghost”, then finally the next movement would mean the ring then ended up upon the finger now known as the “ring finger” where the wedding ring would then remain and “amen” said upon it.

[Paraphrased Aadaab az-Zifaaf of Shaikh al-Albany p140 via Sahab, also mentioned by Sh ibn ul-Uhaymeen quoted from Sh al-Albany, (الضياء اللامع من الخطب الجوامع ج 2 / ص 446)

Shaikh bin Baz concerning wedding rings, “I do not know any basis for this act, this was not from the customs of the muslims…so I consider leaving it is better, it is safer and further from imitation of the disbelievers, it has not reached us that the Salaf as-Salih ever did anything of this nature”. [Paraphrased,

Shaikh Fawzan also stated, “It is not permissible to wear wedding rings at all due to:

1] Imitation of non-islamic customs

2] If the person thinks the ring aids in strengthening the love between the husband and wife then this is from Shirk”.

A Precise word against the decietful hizbiyyoon

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy


Al-Allaamah Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiriy (may Allaah preserve him and prolong his life upon goodness) said: ”The one who knows of the mistake (of a person) and it is manifest to him, then it is not allowed for him to blindly follow a scholar to whom the affair (i.e. the mistake) is hidden……the (verdicts of the scholars based on their striving to reach the correct positions in affairs that require investigation) are not infallible, therefore it is not permissible to adopt (such verdicts) as a methodology (unrestrictedly).  [For further details, see: Al-Haddul Faasil Bayna Mu-aamalati Ahlul Sunnah Wa Ahlul Baatil: page: 43]

Reader: The above is a simple and precise eye opener that unveils the deceitful games of the Hizbiyyoon–those who hide behind the general  unexplained statements of some of the upright scholars in order to divert attention from the specific knowledge based proofs established against their deviated figureheads, such as Maribi, Halabi, Maghraawi and other innovators.  We seek Allaah’s protection from the deceit and evil games of the hizbiyyoon.


The people of Sunnah and the Jamaa’ah…..The people of Bidah and Splitting

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: Bidah is associated with splitting just as the Sunnah is associated with the Jamaa-ah (i.e. the body of Muslims united upon the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the understanding of the Sahaabah).  So it is said: Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa-ah (i.e. the people of Sunnah and the Jamaa-ah) just as it is said: Ahlul Furqa Wal Bidah (i.e. the people of innovation and splitting).

Yusuf Qaradaawi–A figurehead of bidah

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Our noble brothers at salafipublications compiled a series of detailed refutations against Qaradaawee. See the following articles at

May Allaah protect the ummah from the falsehood of this open caller to bidah and falsehood


Imaam Awzaa’ee–A person does not innovate except….

Imaam Al-Awzaa’ee (rahimahullaah) said:

”A man does not innovate (in the religion) except that he is deprived of his wara (i.e. that fear of Allaah keeping him away from doubtful matters or affairs he fears may ruin his afterlife)” [Siyar 7/125]



Advise to the Muslims in Britain, in Light of Recent Events in London

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This is a portion from my conversation today with shaykhunaa (our shaykh), waalidunaa (our father) in Misr (Egypt), Hasan Abdul-Wahhaab Marzouq Al-Bannaa (May Allah preserve him and his family upon good).

I asked shaykhunaa a question pertaining to the recent unfortunate events which have occured in London, UK; in regards to two individuals killing an unarmed British soldier in broad daylight in the streets of London. Two individuals whom the media says are Muslims, and Allah is the Most Knowledgeable of all affairs. I informed shaykhunaa that one of the individuals is captured on video justifying what was done by using quotes from Allah’s book such as, “eye for eye and tooth for tooth”. I asked shaykhunaa, what is our position and what should we do in
regards to this unfortunate event?

Shaykhunaa, Hasan Al-Bannaa (may Allah preserve him upon good) said, it is a must that the believers unite in opposition to this dreadful event. The believers must come together and work together in opposing and rejecting this corrupt methodology.

These individuals speak in regards to this and that. They base their speech upon this and that, however, they do not understand Islaam correctly and are ignorant about correct Islaam. For people say the religion of Islaam is this or is that. Claims of the speech must be confirmed from what has been documented. It is obligatory that one affirms his speech upon that which is correct. The one who does this (speaking without true understanding) commits an error which is in opposition of the foundation of the religion and its branches. They hold on to these ideologies by saying this and that. They intend to harm the Salafis with this. They are in clear opposition of the foundation of the religion. They strive to harm and bring shame to the religion.

Shaykhunaa added that our brothers in Britain are to be aided and shown support; he mentioned Hasan As-Soomaali and Abu Khadeejah. They are aware of what is taking place.

This conversation occurred on May 30th, 2013; in correspondence to the Islaamic calendar date of 20th of Rajab, 1434.
