Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) warns against Riyaa!

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said:

“Riyaa is that you perform an act (of worship) and intend that the people see you, praise and commend you. And from that is to perform an act (of worship) in order to be heard, such as reading (the Qur’aan) in order that you are praised and that it is said: ”Indeed, his reading is good and beautiful”; or you perform a lot of Dhikr in order that you are praised and it is said: “He performs a lot of dhikr;” or you enjoin good and forbid evil so that you are praised and commended. This is Riyaa and Shirk Asghar. Therefore, it is obligatory to be mindful of this and that you perform your deeds for the Sake of Allaah alone; and not for the people, their praises and commendations for you; rather you learn in order to act and teach your brothers. And you lead them in the prayer whilst hoping for the reward from Allaah and intending to benefit them, and not out of an intention to be seen or heard.

A brief clarification from Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah about Saalim At-Taweel’s lie against Shaikh Ubaid

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

وصلني كلام لسالم الطويل نشر في موقع كل السلفيين خلاصته ان الشيخ العلامة عبيد حفظه الله فوضني بمسائل الطلاق والخلع وما اشبه ذلك وهذا والله كذب وافتراء على الشيخ حفظه الله ونقول: سبحانك هذا بهتان عظيم وانما نصحنا وحثنا على الرجوع في هذه المسائل وغيرها الى اهل العلم وهذا ما حصل منا وفعلناه والحمد لله اولا واخرا والعاقبة للمتقين ولا عدوان الا على الظالمين

A statement of Saalim At-Taweel’s- disseminated in the (website) Kullu Salafiyyeen- (1) has reached me that the Shaikh Al-Allaamah Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him) delegated me (i.e. put me in charge) in the affairs of divorce and khula and what is similar to that. This-by Allaah-is a lie and fabrication against the Shaikh (may Allaah preserve him) and we say: ‘’Glory be to You (O Allah) this is a great lie.’’ Rather we were advised and encouraged to refer back to the people of knowledge in these affairs (of divorce and khula) and other than them. This is what has occurred from us and it is what we have done (i.e. we refer these affairs and other than them to the scholars) and all praise is due to Allaah in the beginning to the end of (all affairs) and the (blessed) end is for the Muttaqoon, and there is no enmity except against the oppressors.

[B] Some Destructive False Principles and Calamities of Abdul Maalik Ar-Ramadaani-An ally of Brixton and Luton, and Al-Halabi (Al-Murji Al-Mubtadi)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

[Abdul Maalik Ar-Ramadaani says that the affairs of Jarh Wat-Tadeel are based on Ijtihaad] [1]

 

Question to Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him)

Are the affairs of Jarh Wat-Tadeel based on Ijtihaad? And how do we refute the one who says, ‘’I am not obliged to (take/accept) the speech of such and such a Shaikh?!

 

Answer:

A group amongst the schemers against the Salafi Methodology and those who wear a false garment of Salafiyyah seek to place in the affair of Jarh Wat-Tadeel (the false principle): ”We rectify but we do not disparage;” (and the false principle): ”We want a broad and extensive methodology that will accommodate all the Ummah”; (and the false principle): ‘’We rectify but we do not destroy;” Meaning: Neither evil nor bidah is repelled; rather all the Ummah are accommodated in a board and extensive methodology to the extent that even the Raafidah (shia) are accommodated.  So these people begin to make false accusations against the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel and against those (i.e. the scholars) who establish it.  Some of these false accusers have gone as far as saying that there is no proof in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah to establish the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel!

Indeed, the Qur’aan is filled with the proofs of Jarh Wat-Tadeel—the people of pharaoh have been refuted and disparaged; the people of Prophet Nooh have been refuted and disparaged; the people of Prophet Hud have been refuted and disparaged; the people of Prophet Saaleh have been refuted and disparaged; the Quraish have been refuted and disparaged and Abu Lahab has been refuted and disparaged.  The Sunnah and the methodology of the Salaf are filled with Jarh Wat-Tadeel and it is a weapon against the people of innovation.  These people promoting such false principles want to break this ‘Jarh Wat-Tadeel Weapon’ into pieces, and they want to deprive the Salafis of this ‘Jarh Wat-Tadeel Weapon’ which is traced back to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).

So a person comes along and wages war against the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel; then a second person comes along and wages war against the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel; then a third person comes along and wages war against the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel; then a fourth one comes along and wages war against the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel……..then a tenth person comes along and wages war against the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel and they are all followed by crowds!! Therefore be warned against these people, for they wear a false gown of Salafiyyah in order to split the Salafis through these false principles and precepts.

A person commits murder and was seen by two trustworthy witnesses; then these two witnesses are summoned in the presence of the ruler who applies the Islamic rulings; so what will he judge with?  He should judge by the law of Islam and if not then he has opposed the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah Allaah’s Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).    Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَأَشۡہِدُواْ ذَوَىۡ عَدۡلٍ۬ مِّنكُمۡ

”And take for witness two just persons from among you (Muslims).” [65:2]

The evidence for giving witnesses and the evidences for Jarh Wat-Tadeel are one and the same thing.  As for the untrustworthy person, then his narration is not accepted. Likewise, the liar- the deceiver- whose speech cannot be determined for its correctness, then his testimony is not accepted. Neither his criticism nor commendation of a person is accepted.  However, if he is a scholar who is precise and skilful, and he says about a person: ”Such and such a person is a liar”; then it is obligatory upon the people to accept his speech.  The Salaf followed this methodology, (such as their saying): ”such and such is a liar”; ”such and such has a bad memory”; ”such and such is an innovator”; ”such and such is a murji”; ”such and such is a khaariji”; ”such and such is a mutazili” etc   These statements have been made by Imaam Ahmad, Imaam Ibn Ma’een, Imaam Ibn Al-Madeenee, Imaam Bukhaaree etc.  This the path followed by the Salaf; and why is that the case? That is because Allaah commanded us to accept the narration of the trustworthy narrators.  Allaah (The Most High) said:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِن جَآءَكُمۡ فَاسِقُۢ بِنَبَإٍ۬ فَتَبَيَّنُوٓاْ

”O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it.” [49:6]

Clarification and verification is to be sought when a rebellious evil person narrates; the narration of a rebellious evil person is not declared a lie straight away because it may be correct; but it is not accepted until it is verified.

As for the narration of a trustworthy person–as long as he is trustworthy and precise in what he narrates from the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), then it is obligatory to accept his narration.  The Books of the Sunnah are filled with the narrations of those truthful narrators—a truthful person reports from another truthful person with a chain of transmission going back to the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). However, these people who are seeking to attack the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel with their false principles want to abolish the sound principles upon which our Religion is established.

Many of the Ahaadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), the transmissions from the companions (radiyallaahu-anhum) and the transmissions from the Imaams of the Sunnah were transmitted from one trustworthy person to another trustworthy person… and it obligatory to accept them, due to the saying of Allaah (The Most High): [وَأَشۡہِدُواْ ذَوَىۡ عَدۡلٍ۬ مِّنكُمۡ ]—”And take for witness two just persons from among you (Muslims).”

And with regards to transmission of information, then the information transmitted by one person is sufficient; because the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) used to send one person to Chosroes (i.e. the Emperor of Persia) to call him to Islaam and establish the proofs against him.

And he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-sallam) sent one person to Caesar, King of Rome to call him to Islaam and establish the proofs against him.  The people used to enter Islaam through the message of this one trustworthy-truthful person sent by the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).  And if they rejected Islaam and refused to follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) based on the information transmitted by this one trustworthy-truthful person, he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) prepared an army against them. The Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) prepared an army for the battle of Tabuk against the Romans based on the fact that they rejected the call to Islaam which was communicated to them by one person.

He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) sent individuals to Bahrain, Oman and Yemen and their narrations were accepted; so how about in this present time of ours when there are ten or fifty Salafi (scholars) who are in agreement regarding a particular affair; however their narrations are rejected; and those who reject them, say: ‘’There has to be a consensus of all the scholars.’’  And from the false principles of these people is that they say: ‘’we neither accept criticism against a person nor a praise for him even if many of the contemporary scholars say that such a person is an innovator.’’ 

Therefore be warned against these people, because they make a claim to Salafiyyah, whilst seeking to destroy the Salafi Methodology—its principles and foundations.  How many false precepts do they have, such as their saying: ‘’I am not obliged to (take/accept) the speech of such and such a Shaikh?!’’  You find a scholar quoting and refuting the affairs of misguidance found in the Book of such and such a person, in such and such page; yet you find these people saying: ‘’I am not obliged to (take/accept) the speech of such and such a Shaikh?!’’

This statement of theirs is a principle by way of which they seek to shun and reject truth.  It is a false principle by way of which they seek to reject the sound principles of Jarh Wat-Tadeel.  Therefore, learn the sound principles of Jarh Wat-Tadeel and look to the methodology of the Salaf; and leave alone those who misguide. They bring turmoil upon the true religion of Allaah and upon the Methodology of the Salaf and its followers. [2]

[A] Some Destructive False Principles and Calamities of Abdul Maalik Ar-Ramadaani-An ally of Brixton and Luton, and Al-Halabi (Al-Murji Al-Mubtadi)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

———————————————————————————————————————————————

Shaikh Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him) said: ”Abdul Maalik has become confounded, disorderly and erratic.”

Shaikh Rabee (may Allaah preserve him) said: ”Abdul Maalik is with Al-Halabi and Al-Maribi.”[a]

Shaikh Abdullaah al-Bukhaari (may Allaah preserve him) said: ”Abdul Maalik is sick and deviated.” [b]

 ———————————————————————————————————————————————–

False Principle Number One

Making it a condition that there has to be Ijmaa (consensus) before Tabdee is accepted

Abdul Maalik Ar-Ramadaani (may Allaah guide him) stated about the Tabdee against Eed Shareefee (may Allaah guide him): [العلماء ما أجمعوا على تبديعه حتي يقال هذا الكلام ] ”The scholars do not hold a consensus on the Tabdee against him (i.e. they do not hold a consensus that he is an innovator) in order for you to speak with this statement (i.e. saying that he is an innovator).”’ [End of quote] [1]

There is no basis for this view of Abdul Maalik. The scholars of Ahlus Sunnah have not made it a condition in the science of Jarh Wat-Tadeel that there has to be consensus before a person is declared an innovator; rather a single aalim is enough. Al-Haafidh Ibn Salaah (rahimahullaaj) said:  ”They (i.e. scholars) differed as to whether Jarh and Tadeel is affirmed by way of the statement of one person or there that has to be a second person? Amongst them are those who say: It is not established (or affirmed) except by way of two people just as (the case) in Jarh Wat-Tadeel in giving witnesses (or testimonies). And from them are those to say:- and this is the correct statement chosen by Al-Haafidh AbuBakr Al-Khateeb and other than him-It is established (or affirmed) by the statement of one person because numbers is not a condition for the acceptance of a khabar. It is not a condition for disparaging or commending its narrator as opposed to giving witness (or testimony).” End of quote [2]

So where is the so called Ijmaa claimed by Abdul Maalik (may Allaah guide him) in this affair?! Consider the statement of Shaikh Ubaid (may Allaah preserve him) when he stated: ”Abdul Maalik has become confounded, disorderly and erratic.” The Shaikh also said: ”At present he is a follower of Ali Halabi and he (i.e. Abdul Maalik) is not to be referred to.” [3] Rather Abdul Maalik (may Allaah guide him) stated: [أنا من المتأثرين بعلي حسن االحلبي ومشهور حسن آل سلمان] ”I am from those influenced by Ali Hasan Al-Halabi and Mash-hoor Hasan Aala Salmaan.” [4] He also says that he is in agreement with Ali Al-Halabi in what Al-Halabi (Al-Murji Al-Mubtadi) has written in his depraved book titled Manhajus Salafi [5]

To be continued….In-Shaa-Allaah

Another act of Dishonesty and Deviation of Brixton’s Mubtadi Mentor [Ali Al-Halabi Al-Murji Al-Mubtadi]

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

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The Dishonesty of Brixton’s Mubtadi Mentor

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Haadi said, “Ali Hasan came to my house and I quoted to him the full story from as-Sunnah of al-Khallal so he knew of the boycott of Imam Ahmed regarding ‘Abdulrahman ibn Saalih so why is he misquoting when I already advised him regarding this before he printed this book.”

————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Ustaadh Abdul Ilaah Lahmami (may Allaah preserve him) wrote in 2002:

Refuting the false principle of ‘Ali Hasan regarding getting closer to the innovators due to a benefit

Sheikh Rabee’ ibn Haadi al-Madkhali advised to translate refutations against some of these incorrect principles that ‘Ali Hasan has been calling to so that the Muslims do not fall into them due to the doubts been mentioned.

Sheikh Rabee’ stressed that these doubts are dangerous in that they attack the methodology of the pious predecessors in how they used to not mix with the innovators and refute them.

Sheikh ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree, Sheikh Muhammad ibn Haadi and Sheikh Abdullah al-Bukhaari also showed the seriousness of these latest mistakes of ‘Ali Hasan.

Sheikh ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree advised also to translate what is sufficient for the people to be aware of these errors so that they do not fall into them.

Doubt number 1

‘Ali Hasan al-Halabi said in his book “Menhaj as-Salafus Saalih fi Tarjeeh al-Masaalih” p.16 regarding the fundamentals of refuting:

“What will these individuals reply, may Allaah guide them regarding the situation of visiting (innovators), to what was reported by Khateeb (Baghdaadi) in his (Tareekh 10/262) and it seems this is the reason for their fitnah.

On the authority of Ya’qoob ibn Yusuf al-Mutdawi’ who said “‘Abdulrahman ibn Saalih al-Azdi who was a Raafidi and he used to visit Imam Ahmed, and he (Imam Ahmed) would bring him closer to himself so it was said,  “O Aba ‘Abdillah, ‘Abdulrahman ibn Saalih al-Azdi is a Raafidi?!  So Imam Ahmed said, “subhanallaah, he is a man who loved the family of the Prophet, shall we say to him don’t love him! He is thiqa (trustworthy in narrating).”

‘Ali Hasan said commenting on this in the footnotes, “even though it was known that Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal rahmahullaah refused Dawood adh-Dhaahiree to enter upon him (due to his position with regards the Qur’an being created).” Tareekh Baghdad (8/373) in a report that many quote without a good understanding but times have changed and one must look at the benefits and harms and they are two important principles which many are unaware of who are energetic upon futile matters.”

The actual complete story between Imam Ahmed and ‘Abdulrahman ibn Saalih al-Azdi, the Raafidi is narrated fully in as-Sunnah of al-Khallal vol.1 p.501 and it is not as ‘Ali Hasan portrayed:  Abu Bakr al-Marwazi said that I heard Aba ‘Abdillaah (Imam Ahmed), there are a people who write these lowly ahadeeth concerning the companions of the Messenger of Allaah, and it is reported that you do not reject that the one who reports these narrations to be from the people of hadeeth. So he became angry and refuted this strongly and said “this is futile! We seek refuge in Allaah, I don’t refute this! Even if this was regarding the lowliest of people then I would have refuted it so how is it then if it was concerning the companions of the Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam! Then he said “I don’t write these ahadeeth.” I said, “O Aba ‘Abdillaah (Imam Ahmed), if you come to know of one who writes these lowly ahadeeth should he be boycotted?” He said “Yes, the one who narrates these lowly ahadeeth deserves to be stoned.”

Abu ‘Abdillaah (Imam Ahmed) said “‘Abdulrahman came to me and I asked him: do you narrate these ahadeeth?” ‘Abdulrahman said “so and so narrated it and so and so narrated it.” So I tried to have gentleness with him(to advise him such that he leaves his misguidance) but he continued using as proof that so and so narrated these so when I saw him afterwards I turned away from him and did not speak to him.”

Sheikh Muhammad ibn  Haadi said that Imam Ahmed initially didn’t know that Abdulrahman ibn Saalih was a Raafidi (since he spoke about ‘Uthman and Mu’awiyyah ibn Abi Sufyaan (may Allaah be pleased with them)) because he showed his love for the Prophet’s family initially and spoke well of Abu Bakr and ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them). However, when it became known to Imam Ahmed that he was spreading these narrations against the companions, Imam Ahmed turned away from him and didn’t speak to him.

Sheikh ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree said that Imam Ahmed’s position towards ‘Abdulrahman ibn Saalih is his same position towards Dawood adh-Dhaahiree so ‘Ali Hasan is mistaken in trying to separate the two incidents.Sheikh Muhammad ibn Haadi mentioned that ‘Ali Hasan is mistaken to use an incomplete story regarding Imam Ahmed’s position to allow one to come closer to the innovators in the name of benefit (maslaha) as this opens doors to much evil.

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Haadi said, “Ali Hasan came to my house and I quoted to him the full story from as-Sunnah of al-Khallal so he knew of the boycott of Imam Ahmed regarding ‘Abdulrahman ibn Saalih so why is he misquoting when I already advised him regarding this before he printed this book.”

Sheikh Abdullah al-Bukhaari said that Ali Hasan’s book should not be called Menhaj as-Salaf but rather Menhaj al-khalaf regarding the opposition in it to the methodology of the Sallaf.

Sheikh Ubayd al-Jaabiree said that these doubts concerning the allowance of visiting and mixing with the innovators in the name of maslaha (overall benefit) will open doors to many to mix with the innovators (and sign pledges of mutual cooperation as we have seen in the name of maslaha).

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Haadi mentioned that these errors are clearly the reason for Ali Hasan’s defence for cooperating with ‘Abdulrahman Abdulkhaaliq’s Ihyaa Turath, Abul Hasan al-Misree, Maghrawi, Adnan ‘Urur, Muhammad Hassan and others who have refuted by the scholars and until today have not retracted their errors.

May Allaah guide us all to the truth and protect us. Indeed He is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful

Truly honouring the Prophet – Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam – Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen – Rahimahullaah – said:

If you wish to honour The Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم with the form of honour that he deserves عليه الصلاة والسلام then execute his commands and refrain from matters that he has prohibited in everything that you say and do. By way of that you will become one who has honoured The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Brixton and Luton -Defenders of a Murji Mubtadi (Al-Halabi) and An Ikhwaani Mubtadi (Al-Maribi)

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

———————————————————————————————————————————–

Defenders of a Murji Mubtadi (Al-Halabi) and An Ikhwaani Mubtadi (Al-Maribi)

A Shared Manhaj between Masjid Al-Ghurabaa’s Admin (Luton) and Masjid Ibn Taymiyyah’s Admin (Brixton)

 ————————————————————————————————————————————

[الأرواح جنود مجندة ]

Souls are like recruited troops.

Narrated Aisha (radiyallaahu-anhaa): I heard the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) saying, ‘’Souls are like recruited troops; those who are of like qualities are inclined to each other, but those who have dissimilar qualities differ.’’ [Saheeh Bukhaari Vol 4. Hadeeth Number 3336. Darusallam]

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar (rahimahullaah) stated one of the meanings of this hadeeth in Fat-hul Baari that Al-Khattaabi (rahimahullaah) said: This may indicate to mean similarity in good and evil, righteousness or corruption– the good one amongst the people  is inclined towards one similar to him, and the evil one is similarly inclined towards the one similar to him.  Souls have an affinity with others in accordance with the nature in which they were created, good or evil. They will agree if their natures are similar, otherwise they will be at loggerheads…  [See Fat-hul Baari for further details]

What brings Luton’s and Brixton’s Admins together?!

They are brought together by their defence of two Mubtadia Ali Halabi Al-Murji Al-Mubtadi and Abul Hasan Al-Maribi -Ikhwaani Mubtadi.  In 2003, Farasat [a close associate of Abdul Qaadir (Luton)] stated to Abu Haleemah Na’eem Bashir [Masjid Al-Furqaan Stoke-on-Trent (Masjid Salafi)]:

”Ok, you see we had the seminar in Luton (2003) … and Brixton contributed to the air, to the tickets of the sheikhs as well, so you know we are working together, they just sent us the money for the air tickets, they come up to Luton for the talks, we went down to Brixton, and this is the Shura, and I’ll give you another example were we are working closely together, December (2002) the Sheikhs came, Luton Shura wanted to have a private meeting with the 4 sheikhs, all about issues in Luton…

And the Brixton Shura wanted a private meeting with the Sheikhs about the issues in Brixton, small issues nothing major but after (word unclear) there was a Brixton Shura and Luton Shura, well so why don’t we hold a joint meeting so that shows the level of trust between us and them, coz we would not be talking about issue which are private to Luton in front of a shura who is against us, and likewise Brixton wouldn’t talk about issues which are private to them …in front of us, but what we did was, we said lets hold our Shura jointly, em so I believe there is a high level of trust. Abdul haqq baker he’s in Jeddah now… but he’s phoned me even from Jeddah on a number of occasions, he’s phoned Abdul Qadir, he phoned Abu Zur’a, you know as far as I am concerned the relationship between us is very very good.

About something else and I quickly asked about Abdul haqq and he goes its very very unlikely I mean Abdul Qadir and Abdul Haqq go back about 1990 so ehm and he knows him very well on this issue of the fitna of Abul Hasan al-Maribe what happened was he changed his position from being silent on it to criticizing Abul Hasan and then he came back to saying im not taking a position… [1] [End of quote]

 

Brixton’s defiance and obstinacy in defence of Al-Halabi is only a confirmation of their previous stances (i.e. regarding their stance towards the other Mubtadi Abul Hasan Al-Maribi).  Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: ”And Imaan is known about a man, just as all the states of his heart are known by way of his (outward) allegiances, enmities, his rejoicing, anger, hunger, thirst, and other such affairs. For these matters have certain outward binding necessities (lawaazim dhaahirah) and the outward matters necessitate inward matters. And this is a matter known, the people know this concerning the one that they have experienced and tested (jarraboohu wamtahinoohu)… [minhaaj-as-sunnah 8/475] [Translation: Salafipublications.com]

Therefore, the Maraakiz of Salafiyyah should never turn away from the clear proofs established against the obstinate defenders of Al-Maribi and Al-Halabi, as Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him) says:

”The one who knows of a mistake and it is clear to him, then it is not permissible for him to blindly follow a scholar to whom an affair is hidden. And indeed you already heard yesterday that the scholars are not infallible in their Ijtihaadaat. Therefore, it is not permissible to adopt them (i.e. the mistakes of the scholars) as a methodology (to follow).” [2]

Causes of decrease in Eemaan – Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen – Rahimahullaah – said:

Among the causes of decrease in imaan is ignorance concerning Allah The Most High. (Ignorance) of His names and attributes, as well as inattention and disregard towards contemplating over His universal and legislative laws. For indeed that is what results in (either) sickness of the heart or it’s death, due to doubts and desires overwhelming it (i.e. the heart). Likewise perpetrating sins decreases one’s imaan, in accordance to the type of sin commited, the degree of the sin, laxity concerning it, as well as the strength or weakness of the factors that invite one to it.
