LEVELS OF DISBELIEF – SHAYKH ṢĀLIḤ AL-FAWZĀN

Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan (hafidahullah) was asked:

Does disbelief have many types and levels, some of them more severe than others? Or is it one level? And if there are levels of disbelief, then which of them constitutes cursing of the religion, or Allah, or the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam), and refuge is sought with Allah from that?

He answered:

Yes, Disbelief, – refuge is sought with Allah – is levels, some of them more severe than others, from them is disbelief which exits from the religion, and from them disbelief which is lesser than that: Lesser disbelief. Cursing of the religion, or cursing Allah, or His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) this is from major disbelief, that exits from the religion – refuge is sought with Allah -.

As for lesser disbelief, then its example is like his saying (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)

“Cursing a Muslim is sin, and killing him is disbelief.” (1)

And his statement (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam):

“So, do not turn to disbelief after me by striking the necks of one another” (2)

This is from lesser disbelief which doesn’t exit from the religion, so killing a person is a terrible crime, a great sin and a great prohibition, however it does not lead to the level of disbelief which exits from the religion.

When Is A Person Allowed To Make Up The 6 Days of Shawwāl Outside Of Shawwāl? – Shaykh Al-‘Uthaymīn

Question: “If a woman owes days of fasting from Ramadān, is it permissible for her to fast the six days (of Shawwāl) before the days of Ramadān or does she prioritise the days of Ramadān before the six?”

Answer: “If a woman has to make up fasts from Ramadān, she should not fast the six days from Shawwāl except after making up the fasts of Ramadān. That is because Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Whoever fasts the month of Ramadān, then follows it with six days from Shawwāl…), so whichever woman has to make up days from Ramadān, hasn’t fasted Ramadān and so does not acquire the reward of the six days except after she finishes making up the fasts she owes.

Supposing the fasts required to be made up by a woman takes up the whole of Shawwāl, such as the woman who went through post-natal bleeding and didn’t fast a single day of Ramadān. Then she begins making up the fasts in Shawwāl and doesn’t finish until after Dhil-Qi’dah enters, here she fasts the six days of Shawwāl (although ouside of Shawwāl), and for her is the reward of the one who fasted them in Shawwāl, because her delaying of those days were due to necessity and so her fasting of those six days (outside of Shawwāl) is excused and so she acquires the reward.”

Is It Required To Feed A Group Of The Poor For Missed Fasts – Shaykh Ṣāliḥ Al-Fawzān

Question: I heard on the program ‘Nūr ‘alā ad-Darb’ in reply to a question that it is obligatory that the feeding (expiation for not fasting) is NOT to restricted to one poor person, but rather for every day missed, a different poor person is to be fed.

Answer: Concerning this matter I am not aware of it being obligatory to feed a multiple of poor persons when making the expiation for missed fasts. Allāh, the Majestic, the Most-High, says:

“As for those who can fast with difficulty, they have (a choice either to fast or)
to feed a Miskīn (needy person) (for every day).”

[Al-Baqarah:184]

And so long as the person concerned carries out the expiation of feeding and was to do so with one poor person, I hope and see that as being sufficient, if Allāh wills.

Zakāt For The One Who Receives A Monthly Salary – Shaykh Al-Fawzān

Question: How is zakāt to be paid on the wealth of an employee whose salary increases every month? With some of his wealth, a full year has passed and so zakāt is obligatory on it, however with some of it, a year has not yet completed, so what does he do?

 

Answer: If you were to specify a month from the year in which you extract your zakāt from the wealth you have accumulated, such as the month of Ramadān, this is good. You pay the zakāt on all the wealth that which is with you – the wealth on which a year has passed, you would have paid the zakāt in its time, as for that which a year has not passed, you would have paid it earlier, and the early payment of zakāt is permissible for a legislative reason. This is the only way available for the people (specifically employees receiving a monthly salary). He is to choose a month from the year and makes it the time for extracting zakāt until the coming year in which he does the same.

Majmū Fatāwā, volume 2, page 453.

Our Salaf – [They Use to Visit Their Teachers to Learn Forbearance]

Ibraaheem Ibn Bash-shaar [rahimahullaah] said: Ibraaheem Ibn Adham [rahimahullaah] watched a man who was speaking to another man; so he [i.e. the man] got so angry that he uttered an ugly statement. So Ibraaheem said to him: O such and such! Fear Allaah and it is obligatory that you keep quiet, exercise forbearance and restraint; so the man kept quiet. Then Ibraaheem said to him: It has reached me that Ahnaf Ibn Qais [rahimahullaah] said: We frequently went to Qais Ibn Aasim [rahimahullaah] to learn forbearance from him, just as we frequently went to the scholars to seek knowledge. So he [i.e. the man] said [to ibraaheem]: You don’t have to repeat it [i.e. what you have said is enough as an admonition etc]. [Taareekh Dimashq 26/219]
