Shaikh Uthaymeen said: ”Why would they not be from the most ignorant of people……!

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

”And when it is said to them (hypocrites): “Believe as the people (followers of Muhammad Peace be upon him, Al-Ansar and Al-Muhajirun) have believed,” they say: “Shall we believe as the fools have believed?” Verily, they are the fools, but they know not.” [Soorah Al-Baqarah Ayah: 13]

Shaikh Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said:

From the benefits of the ayah is an indication to the ignorance of the hypocrites, because Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) negated knowledge from them due to His saying:”But they know not.” The reality is that they are from the most ignorant of people. Why would they not be from the most ignorant of people!–for indeed their path is deception, manipulation and misguidance. These hypocrites are from the most ignorant of people because they do not know the reality about themselves and that they are foolish (people).

Our Salaf: What if they saw the fabricators and pretenders amongst the innovators of today?!

Abu khaythama narrated to us, (saying): Jareer related to us from Mansoor from Abu Ad-Duhaa from Masrooq, (who) said:”Once we were sitting with Abdullaah (Ibn Mas’ood) whilst he was reclining; then a man came to him and said: ”O Abu Abdir-Rahmaan! Verily there is a story teller at the doors of Kinda claiming that the portent of the Smoke will come along and snatch the breaths of the disbelievers (i.e. take their souls away) and the believers will get something like a cold from it.” So Abdullaah said while sitting up and he was angry, ”O people fear Allaah! Whoever amongst you has knowledge of something, then he should speak with what he knows; and whoever does not know, then he should say, ”Allaah knows best”; because it the best of knowledge for one of you to say, ”Allaah knows best” with regards to things he has no knowledge of. Indeed, Allaah (The Most High) said to His Prophet (alayhis-salaam): ”Say (O Muhammad): No wage do I ask of you for this (the Qur’aan), not am I one of the Mutakallifun (those who pretend and fabricate things which do not exist)” [Soorah Saad. Ayah: 86. English Trans. Dr Taqi-ud Din Al-Hilali and Dr Muhsin khan]

Ruling on Reading the Qur’an in the Mind, not Physically with Lips – Sh.ibn Baz

The following question was posed to Shaikh Bin Baz: “Some people get a mus’haf and look into it [reading in the mind] without moving their lips; is it still applicable to term this scenario as “reading the Qur’an”? Or is it a must to pronounce/utter the words and for that to be heard in order to deserve the reward for reading the Qur’an? And is a person rewarded for just looking into a mus’haf [reading in mind]?

 

There is nothing preventing looking into the Qur’an without reading [physically] to ponder and contemplate and understand the meanings, but the one who does this is not considered “a reader” [to have actually ‘read’ the Qur’an] and he does not receive the virtue of actually reading unless he pronounces the words and physically reads the Qur’an, even if those around him cannot hear [i.e. it is not required to be loud, but physical pronunciation required though], due to the statement of the prophet “Read the Qur’an for indeed it will come as an Intercessor for its companions on the Day of Judgement” [Muslim]. The prophet  صلى الله عليه و سلم intended by the ‘companions of it’ i.e. those who act upon it, just as it is mentioned in other ahaadith.

Similarly the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “Whoever reads a letter of the Qur’an so for him is a reward, and every reward is 10-fold of its example” [at-Tirmidhy & ad-Daarimy with an authentic chain]. And a person is not considered a “reader” unless he utters [and pronounces that reading], just as the people of knowledge have stated that.

FLOOD DAMAGE TO TROID (AL-HAMDULILLAAH)

On Tuesday July 9th, 2013 the city of Toronto and more specifically the city’s West End endured a massive thunderstorm. The storm dropped 126mm of rain in as little as 2hrs by the decree of Allaah. This rainfall total is almost double the monthly average (75mm) and the largest one day (even though it fell in 2 hrs) rain total ever recorded in the city of Toronto, even more than the 1954 fatal hurricane (Hazel) that destoyed most of the Humber River. Due to the extreme flooding, water from the sewer system backed up into sewer drains and into the basement of the centre. Despite many of the books in our storage area being elevated, the water/sewage rose more than 6 inches in the entire basement and wudhoo/toilets area. Most of the books are not salvageable (sellable) to suppliers.

Damage is estimated to be approx. $15,000. The condition of the wudhoo area and other parts of the basement has not been assesed yet for water damage, although it is a tiled and concrete area. This is a trial from Allaah, the Most Wise, we thank Allaah for this challenge and we are hopeful in Him alone, that it will bring about more good. We say this, whilst most of the kuffar are cursing the weather and behaving ignorantly rather than being in awe of Allaah and realising he is All Powerful and that we are but at the mercy of Allaah Subhaha.

We thank Allaah, then all of our brothers and sisters for their outpowering of concern and kind comments. It is heart-warming to see the love of Ahlus-Sunnah for one another and a clear sign of the unity of the people of Sunnah.

Our Salaf: They hated being raised beyound what they believed was their rightful status

Abu Khaythama narrated to us, (saying): Jareer narrated to us from Al-a’mash from Mas’ood Ibn Maalik who said: ”Ali Ibnul Husain said to me, ”Are you able to make me meet with Saeed Ibn Jubayr?”  I said: ”What need do you have of him?”  He said: ”I want to ask him about some affairs.  Indeed, the people commend us for that which we do not possess.” ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Our Salaf: They never sought the attention of the people for recognition–Alqamah

Abu Khaythama narrated to us, (saying): Mu-aawiyyah Ibn Amr related to us, (saying): Zaa-idah related to us from Al-A’mash from Maalik Ibnul Haarith from Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yazeed who said: It was said to Alqama: ”Why not sit in the masjid so that (the people) gather around you, ask you (questions) and we sit with you. Indeed, they ask those below you (in knowledge0” He (Abdur-Rahmaan) said: so Alqamah said: ”Indeed, I hate that (they) march behind me, saying: ”This is Alqamah; This is Alqamah.”

Abu Qataadah Is A Takfeeri and Not A Salafi

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

The enemies of the Salafis and Salafiyyah persist in their disgraceful lies and devil insinuations in the media. They seek to tarnish the true image of salafiyyah by attributing it to the methodologies of the khawaarij, such as Abu Qataadah and his ilk. Indeed, Salafiyyah is absolutely free from the methodology of the innovators. See the following link in order to find out Abu Qataadah’s evil and innovated methodology.
