Imaam of The Jabariyyah: Iblees! – Ash Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan (Allah preserve him) said:

Iblees was the first one to come with this belief when he said:

قَالَ فَبِمَا أَغْوَيْتَنِي لَأَقْعُدَنَّ لَهُمْ صِرَاطَكَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ

(Iblis) said: “Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them (human beings) on Your Straight Path. (Al A’raaf Verse 16)

He didn’t say it was cos of my sins or my misleading Aadam. Alayhis Salaam

عقيدة أهل السنة و الجماعة في الأسماء و الصفات


“Al Jabariyyah  hold that the people have no free will and are not responsible for their actions, rather they are forced like a feather in the wind.”

Poisoned Food – Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq Al Badr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq bin Abdul Mohsin Al Badr (May Allah preserve them) wrote:

Have you seen if a man was afflicted with severe hunger and delicious food was placed in his hands and he extended his hands (to his mouth) to eat from the food; then it was said to him: “indeed it is poisoned, if you eat from it, it will harm you or destroy you”, will he place his hands in it (eat it) or will he refrain?


How can a person stay far away from (poisoned) food, fearing it’s harm!! And he doesn’t stay away from sins fearful of their punishment!!

May Allah guide us –

Reality of Reciting Quraan – Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq Al Badr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq bin Abdul Mohsin Al Badr (Allah preserve them both) wrote:

Reciting the Quraan is not merely reading it’s letters, or memorising its verses and chapters; rather indeed the reality of reciting the Quran is reading, understanding and action.

Therefore, whoever does not act on the Quran, he is not from its people by merely memorising it or (reading) its letters.

Rather a person cannot be from the people of the Quran until (acting upon) the Quran is seen in him – by way of worship, manners and staying far away from that which angers Allah.


Salafiyyah Unites The People – Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq Al Badr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq bin Abdul Mohsin Al Badr (Allah preserve them both) wrote:

Whenever you call to The Book and the Sunnah, then you are calling to unity and togetherness. Because this is what unites the people; for if they are acquainted with the Book and the Sunnah and act upon them, they will unite, come together; have mutual love for one another, (establish) brotherhood, aid one another (in righteouness and piety and not in sin and transgression) and will be saved from being in opposition to one another and from splitting.

Istiqaamah Explained by Al Imaam Ibn Rajab & Al Imaam Rabee

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ibn Rajab (Allah have mercy upon him) said regarding the definition of istiqaamah:

“It is treading the straight path, -which is the upright religion – without diverting away from it; not to the right and not to the left. And this (treading the straight path) encompasses the acts of obedience,all of them; the outward and the inward and likewise it encompasses the abandoning of the prohibited matters in their entirety.”

Ash Shaykh Rabee (Allah preserve him) explains:

“The outward and inward”; so all of the affairs of the religion are gathered and nothing at all is left.

Actions of the heart such as Eemaan, Love, Fear, Hope and the outward actions such as actions of the limbs (eg the Salah) and actions of the tongue (eg the Shahaadah).

There is nothing that is left from the religion of Allah. So commanding with istiqaamah is commanding with establishment of the affairs of the religion in entirety; outwardly and inwardly.”

Allah Sees Me, Hears Me and Knows What I Will Do – Ash Shaykh Rabee bin Haadi Al Madkhalee

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Al Imaam Ash Shaykh Rabee – May Allah Preserve Him – said:

“It is a must that the Muslim reads (and contemplates over) the verses (of the Quraan) and Ahadith which describe Allah – Tabaaraka wa Ta’aala – with his attributes of perfection and nobility, for indeed this aids him upon the fear of Allah, and upon realising that Allah is ever watchful over all things; that Allah hears all that is to be heard, he hears all sounds and sees a black ant on a black rock in the pitch black of night.

It seems – Allah knows best – the one who persists upon disobedience, Allah has made his heart blind – And refuge is sought with Allah from that – so a person can not (come close to) realise the greatness of Allah (without pondering over His Perfect Names and Attributes) and he can not comprehend that Allah sees him, or that Allah hears him.

But if the slave had this awareness then when he becomes enticed towards disobedience, whether it was small or large; if he reminded himself that Allah sees me, and that Allah hears me and that Allah knows what I’m going to do; then this would be a barrier for him and protection from disobeying Allah -Tabaaraka wa Ta’aala –

Are Ahlus Sunnah Always Pre-Occupied with Refutations? Sh. Rabee’

What the people of desires say about Ahlus Sunnah (is that) their preoccupation with refutations is not correct; no, they (i.e. Ahlus Sunnah) are busy with beneficial knowledge, then they would refute the people of bidah when there is a need. This is (a sign of) nobility about them because this (refutation against Ahlul bidah) is (an act of) sincerity to Allaah and to His Book; (sincere advice) to the Muslim rulers and their common folk, and a path they (i.e. ahlus sunnah) traverse upon the path of the salaf with regards to protecting the religion.

When The Salafis Are United – Al Imaam Rabee ibn Haadi Al Madkhalee

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Al Imaam Ash Shaykh Rabee ibn Haadi Al Madhkalee – May Allah Preserve Him – said:

“Nowadays when they (i.e. opponents of the Salafi Methodology) see the Salafis united and aiding one another upon birr and taqwa; just as Allah commanded, they say, ” look at these (hizbiyoon)illegal partisans!”

This is Tamyee (i.e. a statement aimed at diluting the salafi methodology ) and an empty (speech)

Coming together is either for the sake of falsehood, so it is the party of shaytaan, or it is (done) for the sake of truth, then it is the party of the Most Merciful.”
