[3] The Reality of Ascription: [Ascribing Oneself to a Land or Country]

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

Ascribing oneself to a land –the birth place of a person- and having love for a country is affirmed by Islaam. Az-Zuhriy stated, ‘’Abu Salamah Ibn Abdir-Rahmaan informed us that Abdullaah Ibn Adiy Ibn Al-Hamraa’i Az-Zuhriy informed him that he heard the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), whilst he was standing at Al-Hazwarah Market, (saying): “By Allah! You are the best land of Allah, the most beloved land of Allah to Allah. Had I not been driven out of you, I would not have left you. [Ref 1]

The scholars attribute themselves to the place of their birth, for example you find them saying: Such and such was born in Makkah, brought up in Shaam and died in Misr. The books of biography and the (the books stating the different levels of trustworthiness of the narrators of Hadeeth) are filled with this. [End of quote..(Source: Silsilah Ar-Rasaa’il Al-Manhajiyyah Fin-Nus’hi Wal-Irshaad Wat-Taw’iyah’ page 51’ abridged and slightly paraphrased)]

Reminder: Ascribing ourselves to our countries does not necessitate nationalism, mocking at other people and being boastful etc Listen to a series of beneficial lectures here by Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah (may Allaah preserve him) about Tribalism and Nationalism:


[Ref 1: Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool (may Allaah preserve him) says that this hadeeth was reported by Ahmad 4/305; At-Tirmidhee 3925; Ibn Maajah 3108; An-Nasaa’ee in Sunan Al-Kubraa 4/247-248, Hadeeth Number 4238-4239, and Imaam Tirmidhee says that this Hadeeth is Hasan Ghareeb Saheeh etc]

Reflect About Your Death and This Ramadhan – Al Allaamah Ahmad an Najmee

Al Allaamah Ahmad an Najmee (rahimahullah):

O slave of Allaah, may Allaah have mercy upon you; Observe the fasting of the month of Ramadhaan and standing in its night prayer. Take benefit from this opportunity, it may be that you will not get it again, as perhaps death may snatch you before the next Ramadhaan reaches you again.

Some Effects of the Authentic Sunnah upon the Heart’ -By Imaam Ibnul Qayyim

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

If the (bright) sun of the Sunnah rises in the heart of a servant, the mist (or fogginess) of every Bid’ah is cut from his heart and the darkness of every (act, practice or belief of) misguidance ceases to exist. [Source: Madaarij As-Saalikeen (1/379)]

Think About The Status of Shaikh Fawzaan in The Eyes of Ahlus Sunnah and What He Thinks About Himself

Allaamah Saaleh al-Fawzaan responded to the one who regarded him a defender of Islaam, saying: ‘’As for your statement that I defend Islaam, I am not of this status; I am lesser than that; I am deficient and I seek Allaah’s forgiveness……” [Ref 1]

The Shaikh was also asked: How can we attain the (level) of Shaikh Bin Baaz’s knowledge and your (level in) knowledge?

Answer: We do not possess knowledge, (but) as for Shaikh Bin Baaz, yes he has knowledge [may Allaah forgive him and (grant) him mercy]; as for us, we are Masaakeen (i.e. poor, very lacking in our knowledge etc) like yourselves, but it is obligated on us to learn… [Ref 2]

[5] Tarbiyah [Cultivation]: True Brotherhood – Abu Hamzah Ash-Shaybaani & Abu Sulaymaan Ad-Daaraaniy

Abu Hamzah Ash-Shaybaanee (rahimahullaah) was asked about those who are (truly) considered to be brothers for the sake of Allaah, so he said, “They are those who act in obedience to Allaah and cooperate in helping one another to fulfil Allah’s command, even if they are separated physically and by their houses.” Abu Sulaymaan Ad-Daaraaniy (rahimahullaah) was informed of this statement of Abu Hamzah, so he said, “Indeed they act in obedience to Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) and cooperate in helping one another to fulfil Allah’s command, but they cannot be (true) brothers until they visit one another and spend on one another [i.e. help a brother (or sister) financially to the best of one’s ability when in need].

History: Why Do The Khawaarij Carry Out Many of Their Plots During Ramadhaan’ by Sh Abdur-Razzaaq Al-Badr?

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

Shaikh Abdur-Razzaaq Al-Badr (may Allaah preserve him) says:

Abdur Rahmaan Bin Muljim and those with him started their plots to assasinate Ali, Mu’aawiyah and Amr Bin Aas (radiyallaahu-anhum) on the 17th of Ramadhaan. Subhaanallaah! This is a continued Sunnah [way or path] of the khawaarij. Many of those who look into history see that many of the (evil) deeds and plots of the Khawaarij are carried out in Ramadhaan. That is because in Ramadhaan the souls of the people are upon tranquillity and drawn towards obedience to Allaah, and the people do not think that anyone will attack them.

[3] Tarbiyah [Cultivation]: Ka’b Bin Ahbaar Advised a Seeker of Hadeeth to Safeguard himself from Self-Amazement

Ka’b Al-Ahbaar said to a man who came to him seeking after Hadeeth, ”If your knowledge filled what is between the heavens and the earth, whilst (you are afflicted with) Self-Amazement, it will not increase you except in lowliness and deficiency”. [Hilyatul Awliyaa 5/376]
