Know Yourself & Prepare to Meet Your Lord – Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan

Ponder! Why were you created? Ponder! To where are you travelling?

The one with intellect contemplates regarding his (current state), he contemplates regarding that which is approaching him, therefore he prepares for that which is in front of him.

The worldly life is a passing life and the Hereafter is an everlasting abode. The worldly life is the abode of action and the Hereafter is the abode of recompense.

Know your own reality! May Allah have mercy upon you.
Everyone must ponder regarding himself, what has he prepared for the meeting with Allah, The Glorified, The Most High.

{So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.} Al-Kahf:110

Allaah is the One Who Controls All Affairs – Shaykh Saalih Aal Ash Shaykh


Donate to our masjid Ramadhaan appeal – Salaficentre.com/Appeal2019


“Many verses have come in the Qur’aan about Tawheed ar Ruboobiyyah (Singling out Allaah with His Actions) and knowing about Al Khaaliq (The Creator) and Ar Raaziq (The Provider)
The One who gives life and death, the One who gives and withholds, who debases and raises, He protects all while against him there is no protector.

Because the people, in this life, they believe or they may believe – Shaytaan (Satan) may come to them and cause them to believe – that everything is in the hands of mankind. No!
(Rather) the One in whose Hands is everything is Allaah! Alone! And Mankind are (merely) a means (for things to take place).
They may do (something) or they may not do (something). And because of this, if you see in the Qur’aan the mention of Allaah – The Glorified and Exalted – in an Ayah (verse) then repeat it.

For indeed it cures the stains of the Dunya (Worldly Life) in the heart (Meaning: The stains caused by the Dunya).”

Giving Preference to Others in Performing Good Actions – Shaykh Saaleh Aal-Ash Shaykh

Note: there is an error in the video – the shaykh says “5000 riyals” not “50000 riyals”

Giving preference (to others) in actions of gaining closeness – meaning: That the issue, if it is referring to gaining closeness to Allaah, The Glorified and Exalted, then giving preference to your brother (in Islaam) in that act is Makrooh (Disliked).

Because this contradicts the racing (to good deeds) that we mentioned to you the proofs for (earlier) and hastening towards good and mutually competing.

So for example, there is a gap in the first row (for prayer) or a place further forward behind the Imam and you and your Muslim brother are standing

so you say to him “Go ahead” and he says to you “No, you go ahead”, you say (again) “Go ahead”, so the likes of this is not appropriate because it is disliked.
Rather what is appropriate is hastening to achieving this act of drawing close (to Allaah) and that is the virtue of being in the first row.

(Another) example; a man comes and he is in need of an extra 5000* Riyaal in order to remove his poverty. And you are capable (of helping him) and likewise your Muslim brother is capable (of helping him)
so you say to him (your capable, Muslim brother), “Help him, I’m giving you the opportunity, go ahead and help him.” and he says “No, you go ahead”
(and all of this is said) from the angle of love (for one’s brother). Meaning that each person puts forward his brother, then the likes of this is also disliked, and is not appropriate. Because in this area (what is expected) is hastening and competing in actions of good.
Likewise from the angle of reading – reading (some aspect of) knowledge upon the scholars – and taking the opportunities to obtain acts of obedience and striving and what is similar to this.
So these matters are known as good deeds i.e. acts of obedience . So giving preference to others in acts of obedience, i.e. those good deeds, is not appropriate, (rather it is) disliked because – as we have mentioned – it contradicts the command with hastening, racing and mutually competing in goodness.

An Ignoramus is Better than a Person who has Knowledge But Does not Act – Shaykh Uthaymeen

Shaykh Uthaymeen said:

Verily, we all know that the intent of knowledge is action. Because knowledge is a means and action is the fruits. And if a person does not benefit with his knowledge, then an ignoramus is better than him. And many knowledge based issues are understood by most students, however they do not carry them out, whether it was in (issues of) worship, or dealings with the creation. And this there is no doubt is a deficiency; a deficiency, and a reason for deficiency, meaning deficiency in knowledge. For if a person was to act by his knowledge he benefits and his knowledge increases. So, whoever acts by that which he has learnt, then Allāh will forgive him for that which he did not know.

Returning to Sin after Making Repentance – Shaykh Saaleh Aal Ash Shaykh

 

The Questioner says: I am a young man who has transgressed against himself greatly (meaning he was very sinful), and I have now followed the path to repentance – and all praise is due to Allaah – however, there are still some aspects of disobedience that entice me, so what is your advice to me and those like me? May Allaah reward you with goodness.

Answer:
And I say to you: May Allaah reward you for drawing near to Allaah the Mighty and Majestic and (for your) repentance and regret of what has passed (of sins), and from your caution from the effects of these sins and disobedience.
And the slave (of Allaah) if he was upon a (particular) state then becomes upright and repents (to Allaah) then indeed very few are those who do not keep some things that they used to do before of sins. But upon him (the questioner – or anyone in this situation) are 3 affairs:

  1. To attach great importance to his (act of) his drawing near to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and to know that the reward for him being upright is Jannah. And (to know) that by way of sins, he could return to his previous state that he was previously upon.
  2. To be cautious of sitting with those who used to do those sins with him. Because they will facilitate (the sin) for him and so he could return to them (and their ways) after his repentance and drawing near to Allaah.
  3. To search for righteous companions of a similar age to him who will aid him upon goodness and will reduce the chances of him returning to those sins. And if what entices him entices him then he makes plenty of Istighfaar (asking Allaah for forgiveness) and he is determined (not to return to it).
    “As for those who strive hard in Us (Our Cause), We will surely guide them to Our Paths (i.e. Allaah’s religion – Islamic Monotheism). And verily, Allaah is with the Muhsineen (Good doers).”
    And in the narration:
    “One who seeks forgiveness from Allaah will not persist (upon a sin) even if he returns to it 70 times.”
    So the slave (of Allaah) seeks forgiveness a lot, he knows that he sins so he seeks forgiveness. However, he doesn’t persist upon disobedience because he doesn’t care, rather he seeks forgiveness. Every time he does (the sin) and his soul entices him, he seeks forgiveness from Allaah the Mighty and Majestic. For indeed Allaah is Al Ghafoor (The One who forgives extensively) Ar Raheem (the Bestower of Mercy).

The Spreading of Knowledge and The Spread of Islam – Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan

The Questioner asks:

“How do we combine between the spread of knowledge and the spread of Islam everywhere and the saying of the prophet, peace be upon him, that every time will be worse than the one preceding it.”

The Answer in the video by Shaykh Fawzaan

“Knowledge will spread in all ages and reach the East and the West. Today, you see that knowledge used to spread through Jihad in the path of Allah and the call to Allah. Now, we have the media, so the Qur’an is recited with loud and clear. It is recited in the loudest voice in the East and West. The Athaan (call to prayer) is heard in the East and West. This is from the mercy of Allah and from the establishment of proof against the servants so they can not say, Islam did not reach us or nothing reached us.”
