The Prophet Nurtured The Ummah Upon Truthfulness- [A Brief Admonition By Shaikh Rabee]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Al-Allaama Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] said:
Through [Muhammad [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasalam], Allaah removed us from the darkness of Shirk, Fawaahish [i.e. lewdness, indecency, licentiousness, immorality] and Bidah; and evil deeds and bad manners, [such as] lying, deceit, quackery, trickery etc. And He [purified us] with pure [Islamic] monotheism and strong sincere Eemaan.
He [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] nurtured us upon truthfulness and took the oath of allegiance from us that we speak the truth wherever we may be, and He warned us against lies and evil deeds.
And from the recompense [given] to a liar is that which has been reported from the noble Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]- the person of high moral character- who said: ‘’I saw [in a dream]- two men came to me.’’ Then the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasalam] said, ‘’They said, ‘the person- the one whose cheek you saw being torn away [from the mouth to the ear] was a liar and used to tell lies and the people would report those lies on his authority till they spread [that lie] all over the world. So he will be punished like that till the Day of Resurrection.’’ [Reported by Imaam Al-Bukhaari: Number: 6096]
How numerous are those who tell lies today against the carries of Salafiyyah and its callers! They hinder men from the path of Allaah by way of these lies, [in order] to aid falsehood, spurious [stances, ideas, views etc], bidah, [views, stances, beliefs, ideas etc] that are destructive to the sound creed, [the sound] methodology and virtuous manners.
