Foundations for Our Teaching Establishments: Giving Precedent and Emphasis to The Aqeedah Over Certificates When Employing Teachers – Shaykh Rabee’ B. Haadi

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [May Allah Preserve and Protect Him] said:

“It is not befitting [or permissible] in any situation that [one] relies on certificates when choosing a teacher; rather it is obligatory -from the beginning- to take his Aqeedah into consideration, thoughts [or views], manners, Islam and adherence to his religion. This is a very important affair and there’s no way of getting away from it. The teacher who is deviated in his Aqeedah, thoughts or has weak mannerisms and behaviour; or he is negligent in carrying out acts of worship and the prayer -poses more danger to our children than deadly diseases.”

Do Not Oppress your Family, Your Wife or Others – Shaykh ‘Abdul Azīz b. Bāz

Do Not Oppress your Family, Your Wife or Others. – Shaykh ‘Abdul Azīz b. Bāz


Oppression is from the most disgusting, despicable of major sins, it’s evil consequences Allāh (The Glorified) has informed us of in His Tremendous Book:

وَمَن يَظْلِم مِّنكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَابًا كَبِيرًا

And whoever among you does wrong, We shall make him taste a great torment. (Al-Furqān: 19)

And Allāh says:

وَالظَّالِمُونَ مَا لَهُم مِّن وَلِيٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍ

And the Dhālimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) will have neither a Wali (protector) nor a helper. (Ash-Shūra: 8)

Hence, oppression is a great evil and it has evil consequences, the Messenger (sallāhu alayhi wa salam) said:

“Fear oppression for indeed oppression is darkness on the day of resurrection.” (Muslim)

Furthermore, Allāh has said in a Hadīth Qudsī (which is narrated by the Prophet (sallāhu alayhi wa salam)):

“Oh my servant! Indeed I have forbidden oppression upon myself and between you, so do not oppress.” (Muslim)

Therefore, it is obligatory to be cautious of perpetrating oppression to any of the people, whether it be your family, your wife, your brothers, your children, your mother, your father, your neighbours and other than them.

Likewise, do not oppress your employees, give them their wages in full, every month (for e.g.) give him or her their wages.

Give everyone who has a right upon you; your children, your wife and other than them; their rights.

The intent in being cautious regarding oppression of the people is because indeed Allāh has made sacred the blood, honour and wealth of the Muslims.

So, the Muslim takes himself to account and fears his Lord, so do not oppress anyone, not their honour or their wealth, regardless of whether they are close to you or not.

Sharing a Reminder From a Brother: Let Not a Day Goes by Except That We Are Certain That Our Parents Are Well, Safe and Happy, And Let Us Beware of Shaytaan When He Whispers Saying, ‘’You Are Busy with Work Today and Your Parents Are Ok, So Contact Them Tomorrow’’

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

Indeed, brothers and sisters our parents are a great gift from Allaah. They nurtured us and continue to supplicate for us. If our parents – whether they Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus etc- live in the same city, then that is a great blessing because serving them would be very easy. However, if they live far away or in another country with other family members, then let not a day goes by except that we are certain that they are OK. Let us beware of shyataan when he whispers to us, saying, ‘’Today, you have too much work to do and you are also busy with the kids. Your parents must be ok otherwise you would have been contacted immediately!’’

Yesterday [05/01/18] a brother -whose parents live in another country with other family members- contacted his parents to enquire about their welfare, so the father said: Alhamdulil laah we are all ok. Hope you’re all in good health in spite of the cold weather.’’

Today [06/01/18], the brother contacted his father to find out about their welfare again, so the father said: Wa alaykum salaam, I’ve been down with a bad stomach since yesterday evening.  My doctor came to the house last night and gave me some medication. It’s slowly getting better but not completely yet.’’

As for the mother, even though she spoke to the son on the phone, she never revealed that she was not feeling well. After speaking to the son on the phone, she texted saying: ‘’Just didn’t want to worry you, but I was unwell for the past two weeks. After the tonsillitis, I had stomach ache for a whole week. I was so weak and can hardly walk properly. I did not even tell your sister just not to get u guys worried thousands of miles away. On the 1st of January, I was in bed the whole day. Anyway, am much better now and back on my feet. Old age is not easy, but Alhamdulil-laah, your other siblings are around and wallaahi they are good people and do take care of me when am ill. I thank you all for always being concerned about my health and welfare. May Allah reward you all. Take care my son and my salams to all.’’ [End of quote]

Brothers and sisters, never should we be that busy to the extent that we forget to enquire about the welfare of our parents. We ask Allaah to forgive us our shortcomings and grant our parents abundant mercy Aameen. Indeed, we can never do enough to pay them back what they truly deserve.

The Sin of the Person Who Does Not Provide for Those Under His Care. Hadeeth: Explanation of Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad

Abū Dawūd reported the hadīth of Abdullāh ibn ‘Amr (Allāh be pleased with him). He said, “Allāh’s Messenger (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said”

“Sufficient sin for a man is that he neglects those he should provide for.”(1)

Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin (hafidahullāh):

“Meaning, a person sins due to the absence of spending and providing on the one spending upon is obligated.

Regardless of whether that was due to him not seeking sustenance for them (by working), or if he was wealthy but was stingy and tightfisted with them.

Or perhaps he spends and gives optional charity to those who aren’t close to him, neglecting those who it is obligatory for him to spend on, from those close to him, (wife, children etc), so by doing this he fulfils a recommended act but abandons an obligation.

Indeed he is sinful because he abandons that which Allāh (‘azza wa jal) obligated upon him, from spending upon those it is obligated to provide for.

This is similar to the previous hadīth(2), Spend it on yourself, then your child, then your wife, then your servant, then he (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) said: You have better knowledge; meaning: after that, give charity to whomsoever you wish, or don’t, its entirely up to you.”


Slightly Paraphrased from Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin’s (hafidahullāh) explanation of this hadīth in his lessons on Sunan Abū Dawūd in the Prophets Masjid.

(1) Authenticated by Shaykh Al-Albāni Sahīh Sunan Abū Dawūd Hadīth Nos. 1692 Vol.1 Pg. 469
(2) Full wording of the Hadīth:

On the Authority of Abū Hurayrah, he said Allāh’s Messenger commanded with giving in charity. Then a man said, “Oh Allāh’s Messenger! I have a dīnār?”

So Allāh’s Messenger said “Spend it in on yourself”.

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your offspring.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your wife.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “Spend it on your servant.”

He (the man) said, “I have another?”

(Allāh’s Messenger) said “You have better knowledge.” (On how to spend it, or give in charity to.)

Authenticated by Shaykh Al-Albāni Sahīh Sunan Abū Dawūd Hadīth Nos. 1691 Vol.1 Pg. 469
