In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him) sent this message via WhatsApp from Abu Afnaan Muhammad (may Allaah preserve him):
From some of the benefits of today’s lesson in Kitab at Tawheed with Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Ramzan al Hajiri حفظه الله تعالى in the city of ad Dammam:
1. Being firm upon the truth is more difficult than knowing the truth.
2. Students of knowledge – spread at tawheed. The people are in need of at tawheed more than their need of food, drink and clothing. A person will not die until the provisions Allah has decreed for him have reached him, but if he dies upon as shirk (his abode is the hellfire forever) This is the concern because he can have all the dunya and it wont benefit him if he goes to Allah upon shirk.
3. The people of falsehood and bidah are the same throughout the ages in their refutation of the truth. If you tell a Jahmi the verses regarding Allahs names and attributes, he’ll say ‘don’t qoute the verses of the Hashawiyah (deragatory name used by the jahmiyah to disparage ahl sunnah).
If you go to someone who worships graves and tell him the verses of tawheed al ibaada, he’ll say don’t use the verses of the wahabiyah. And if you go the the khawarij and tell them the verses and ahadith of hearing and obeying (the rulers) they will respond don’t use the verses and proofs of the jaamiyah (reference to Sheikh Muhammad Amaan). Ya subhaan Allah!! Look at how they describe verses and ahadith. Verses of the Quran and ahaadith of the Messenger. Are these not the statements of the Lord of Allah Worlds and the statements of the best of mankind?
4. A person is misguided if he is ignorant of the truth with its proofs and if he wanted to know the truth he is prevented from arriving at it as there are those inviduals who warn from the truth and its people. So he is ignorant of the truth and has become an enemy to its people.
The sheikh mentioned a statement by Ibn Baz: ‘miskeen, a person is ignorant and then becomes an enemy to the people of truth. How will know the truth? Mushkilah!!!’
أسأل الله أن يجزي الشيخ خير الجزاء و أن ينفع به و يبارك في علمه
