Possessor of Evil Manners is Not a Key to Good – Ash Shaykh Abdur Razzaaq Al Badr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


إِنَّ مِنْ النَّاسِ مَفَاتِيحَ لِلْخَيْرِ مَغَالِيقَ لِلشَّرِّ ، وَإِنَّ مِنْ النَّاسِ مَفَاتِيحَ لِلشَّرِّمَغَالِيقَ لِلْخَيْرِ ، فَطُوبَى لِمَنْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ مَفَاتِيحَ الْخَيْرِ عَلَى يَدَيْهِ ، وَوَيْلٌ لِمَنْ جَعَلَاللَّهُ مَفَاتِيحَ الشَّرِّ عَلَى يَدَيْهِ

‘Indeed from amongst the people are those who are keys to goodness and closures to evil. And indeed from amongst the people are keys to evil and closures to goodness. So tooba for the one who Allah has made him a key to goodness and wayl to the one who Allah has made a key to evil.”(1)

Shaykh Abdur Razzaq Al Badr comments on this Hadith and extracts 8 affairs if a Muslim was serious about their actualisation he would become a Key for Good and a Closure of Evil.

Fifthly: Good Manners- to adorn yourself with good noble manners and to distance yourself from bad manners that are lowly. So the possessor of noble manners his character protects him from evil and indecency, in contrast to the possessor of an evil character, for indeed his character is evil and runs towards evil and indecency.
(1) Declared Hasan by Al Imaam Al Albaani in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Maajah, Hadeeth 195

“Mix Not Truth with Falsehood” – Ibn Al Qayim

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

And mix not truth with falsehood, nor conceal the truth while you know (the truth). [2:42]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: Allaah forbade (us) from mixing truth with falsehood, and thus leading to concealment of the truth. Mixing truth with false is by mixing the two until one of them is confused for the other. This is forgery and deceit by way of which what is made apparent is the opposite of what it is in reality. Likewise, when truth is confounded with falsehood, the culprit manifests falsehood in the image of truth and speaks with a statement that carries two meanings- a correct meaning and false meaning, so the listener is under the illusion that the speaker intends the correct meaning, whilst he (i.e. the speaker) intends the corrupt meaning.

[Source: Badaa’i At-Tafseer Al-Jaami Limaa Fassarahu Al-Imaam Ibnul Qayyim’ Vol 1, page 124. Abridged and slightly paraphrased]

Accompanying One Who is a Slave to His Belly

Muhammad Ibn Waasi (rahimahullaah) said: “There is no good in accompanying companions and engaging in conversations if they are slaves to their bellies (i.e. only interested in earning in order to eat and enjoy themselves); because if they are like this, some of them will hinder others from the affairs of the aakhirah (i.e. those deeds that will lead them to success in the hereafter).”
 [Reported by Ibn Abee Dunyah ‘ in ( Al-Ikhwaan, page 100)]

Explanation of Shaykh Ubaid al Jaabiree
Lesson By Abu Muaadh Taqweem Aslam

  • Brand New 10 Week Course with Worksheets.
  • Broadcast on
  • Both Men’s and Women’s side open.

We will begin a new course which will be over a period of 10 weeks, starting 22nd of November and every Saturday after inshaa allah. Wherein we will study and learn the correct understanding and implications of the Shahaadah: Laa ilaha illa Allah, this course is ideal for new Muslims, a reminder for others and will be suitable for the young and old, those new to Salafiyyah and those who have been Salafi for a while. This is an extremely important topic for all Muslims as the Shahaadah is the key to Jannah and every key has teeth; so to know what these teeth (conditions) are, we must learn and study them. We will provide worksheets online and to those present in the Masjid to aid the learning process, inshaa allah.

We pray you are able to attend and benefit from the upcoming course. Don’t hesitate in calling friends and families to attend and listen, who knows if it will be this action of yours  and the knowledge learnt  which will tip the scales in your favour on the day of resurrection.

Great News. Alhamdulillah we have managed to compile a book together including the Arabic, English of the conditions, Notes section as well as the worksheets, which is available to download below; for those who would like the worksheets only, the link is also below.

We will upload weekly a completed worksheet with all the answers for you to compare and check your answers.

Giving in Charity – Open, Secretly, Pledges & Announcing Donations – Shaykh Uthaymeen (@salafi_school)


The questioner asks: Does informing the people about what a person gives in charity or making it apparent to them deprive the person who does this of the reward (of spending in charity)? For example if every person from a particular group of people were to give a certain (known) amount in spending.


If a person manifests his charity or the sum contributed is manifested to the people, or other than it, then this does not reduce his reward; because Allaah has praised those who spend their wealth in private and public; rather sometimes it may be that spending openly is better than spending secretly if there is a benefit in making it open, such that the people follow his (i.e. the spender’s) footsteps and do what he did.  This may be similar to the one who guides to good and the one who guides to good is similar to its doer. “Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him in that until the day of resurrection.”(1) Yes. If a person knew in his heart that by manifesting it (i.e. spending in charity) he is intending to show off to the people and to be seen, so that they can praise him for performing this act of worship; then indeed this is from Riyaa, which a person must strive to free himself as much as he can. And Allaah is the one who grants success.


Shaykh Uthaymeen: Fataawa Noor ala ad-Darb page 12-13 vol 7

[1] A brief clarification: “Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him in that until the day of resurrection.”

Jareer ibn ‘Abdullaah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: “Some people from the Bedouin came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), wearing woollen garments. He saw that they were in bad shape and in desperate need, so he urged the people to give them charity. The people were very slow to respond, and it could be seen in his face (that he was upset). Then a man of the Ansaar brought a package, then another came, and another and another, and his face was filled with joy. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him in that until the day of resurrection.” Whoever starts a bad thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a burden of sin like that of those who followed him, without it detracting in the least from their burden.'” [Reported by Imaam Muslim (rahimahullaah) in Book of Zakat. Hadeeth Number 1017]

“Whoever starts a good thing in Islaam;” Starts acting upon a legislated Sunnah and it does not mean the one who innovates; because the one who innovates something (i.e. an act of worship that is not legislated) in Islaam, he will have it rejected. Rather, what is intended in this hadeeth is the one who was the first person to act upon that Sunnah, just like this companion who came along with a package to give in charity.  There are three ways of starting something in Islam:

  1. To start something bad and that innovation. It is something evil even if it is made to look good because the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ‘’Every bid’ah (in the religion) is misguidance.’’
  2. To start a good thing in Islaam and this occurs in two ways:
    1. A person revives an abandoned legislated Sunnah: A person finds that a legislated Sunnah in Islaam has been abandoned, so he revives it. For example the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) legislated the night prayer (i.e. Taraweeh, Qiyaamul Layl during Ramadhaan) behind an Imaam, but he abandoned it during the latter part of his life fearing that it may become obligatory for his Ummah. This continued during the time of Abu Bakr and the early part of Umar’s Khilaafah. However, Umar later revived this Sunnah by gathering the people behind a single Imaam in Taraweeh. So Umar started a good Sunnah in Islaam because he revived that which was abandoned.
    2. A person becomes the first person to act upon a legislated Sunnah: This happens when a person becomes the first to act upon that Sunnah, such as the man who came forward with charity and the people followed in his footsteps and gave in charity.

So there is nothing to be considered a good Sunnah in Islaam except that which has been legislated in the Sharee-ah. So whoever revives an abandoned legislated Sunnah or leads the way to performing a legislated Sunnah, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him.  However, some people have taken this hadeeth an excuse to innovate in the religion of Allaah that which is not from it.
