Our Salaf: The Night prayer-Thaabit Al-Bunaanee and Maymoon Ibn Mehraan

Thaabit Al-Bunaanee (rahimahullaah) used to pray at night and fast during the day.  He used to say: ‘’There is nothing I find more pleasing to my heart than Qiyaamul Layl (i.e. Tahajjud)’’ [Sifatus Safwah 3/262]

Maymoon Ibn Mehraan (rahimahullaah) said:

”The nobility of a Muslim is in performing the prayer in the darkness of night and not being desperate for what is in the hands of the people (i.e. their possessions) [Shu’ab Al-Imaan 3/171]


We ask Allaah to grant us the tawfeeq to follow the example of our Salaf. However, if Allaah grants you the Tawfeeq to wake up for the night prayer, do not stand up all night and then oversleep and miss fajr; rather ask Allaah for tawfeeq to wake up in the last third of the night until the beginning of Fajr.

 

You are either a false accuser or an ill-informed one! Rebuttal of weak doubts.

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

Do we blindly follow the Scholars: [Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Zaid etc] or the Salafi students within and outside of the UK- Where is your proof?!

Ibn Abdul-Barr (rahimahullaah) said:

“According to the scholars, Taqleed (i.e. blind adherence) is other than Ittibaa [i.e. adherence to an authentic affair narrated from the Messenger-sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and obviously with the correct understanding of the Salaf]; because ittibaa is to follow a person based on what is apparent to you of the superiority of his statement and soundness of his school of thought. And Taqleed is that you speak with his statement, whilst you neither know the angle of his speech nor its meaning and you reject speech besides it; or his mistake is made manifest to you, but you follow him and venerate his opposition, whilst the corruptness of his speech is clear to you. This is what is forbidden to speak with in the religion of Allaah (The Most High)”

[End of Quote: Jaami Bayaan Al-Ilm Wa-Fadlihee: 2/787] See articles for more clarification…may Allaah guide you.

O Salafi students! Listen to this advice…

Imaam Dhahabi (rahimahullah) said:

“It is obligatory upon the scholar to speak with (sincere) intention and a good aim. If his speech amazes him, he should keep quiet; and if keeping quiet amazes him, he should speak. He should not slacken in examining his soul, because it loves fame and praise” [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa 4/494]


 

Do not be deceived by Abu Suhaib Bassam and other false claimants to clarity

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

Abu Suhaib Bassaam has a Tazkiyah from a Mubtadi and keeps the company of the supporters of that Mubtadi

Ali Halabi Al-Mubtadi wrote: Praise be to Allah, and the benediction and salutation on the Messenger of Allah on his progeny and his companions and those who follow him After that: Verily our brother in the cause of Allah, Abu Sohaib Bassam Abul Haj is from among our brothers from the salafiyyun known with us for the propagation of faith to Allah’s book and the Sunnah upon the manhaj of the salaf, refuting the deviated people of innovation. May Allah grant us the right aptitude and every virtue returns to Him.” [End of Quote—original Tazkiyah in Arabic available on the net]

This above recommendation is from the Mubtadi Ali Halabi to Abu Suhaib Bassaam Alee Haaj.  There are no statements of Abu Suhaib freeing himself from this deceitful Mubtadi; rather he entered the city of Manchester as a guest of Masjid As-Sunnah—the supporters, helpers, companions and staunch followers of Ali Halabi Al-Mubtadi, Muhammad al Maghraawi Al-Mubtadi At-Takfeeri and Abul Hasan Al-Maribi Al-Mubtadi Al-Ikhwaani. Indeed, we hope that the following is sufficient as reminder for Abu Suhaib and those deceived by him.

When Sufyaan ath-Thawree came to Basrah, he began to look into the affair of ar-Rabee’ bin Subaih and the people’s estimation of him. He asked them, ‘What is his Madhhab?’ and they said, ‘His madhhab is but the Sunnah.’ He then asked, ‘Who is his companionship?’ And they replied, ‘The people of Qadr.’ So he replied, ‘In that case he is a Qadari.’ [Al-Ibaanah (2/453)]

Ibn Battah said:

“So fear Allaah, O Muslims! The good opinion you have of yourself and the knowledge you have that you are on the correct way, should not lead you to risk your Deen by sitting down with some of these people of desires, thinking, ‘I will intrude upon them in order to debate with them or to expose their ideas.’ However, they are more severe form of Fitnah than the dajjal, and their speech clings to a person more strongly than a severe itch, and can burn the hearts more than a blazing flame can. And I have seen a group of people who used to curse and revile the People of Desires. Then they went and sat with them in order to contest with them and refute them. Then the cheerful, open attitude, the hidden deception and the subtle disbelief continued until they became inclined towards them.” [Source of narration: Al-Ibaanah 2/470]

Abu Suhaib is well aware of the detail refutations of the Scholars against Halabi and his innovations, however he takes pride in halabi’s recommendations and keeps company with the staunch followers of halabi at Masjid As-Sunnah.  So do not be fooled by the Abu Suhaib and the deceitful false claimants to clarity.

And Allaah knows best


 

 

 

 

 

Our Salaf: Who is the most perfect amongst the people?

Mahmood Al-Warraaq (rahimahullaah) said:

”The most perfect amongst the people is the one who is more knowledgeable about his shortcomings and suppresses his desires and covetousness the most.” [Jaami Bayaan Al-Ilm Wa Fadlihi 1/259]


 

Our Salaf: Dhun Noon Al-Misri

Dhun Noon (rahimahullaah) said:

”Being consistently in need of Allaah whilst having mistakes is more beloved to me than being consistently (devoted in worship, obedience, remembrance of Allaah, Zuhd etc) alongside self-amazement, and Allaah knows best.’’ [Tareequl Hijratayn. Page 61]


 

The best means of seeking closeness to Allaah

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said that Abu Hafs [rahimahullaah] said, ”The best of that which a slave seeks a means of closeness to his Mawlaa [his Protector, Patron, Supporter (i.e. Allaah)] is to be constantly in need of Him in all circumstances, holding onto the Sunnah in all his actions and seeking nourishment [i.e. food] through permissible means.” [Tareequl Hijratayn: page 59]
