Backing Up Your Claims In Three Important Affairs- Haatim Al-Asam

Haatim Al-Asam (rahimahullaah) said: Whoever claims three affairs without three other affairs is a liar: [a] The one who claims to love Allaah without fearing what He has forbidden is a liar; [b] the one who claims to love paradise without spending his wealth is a liar; [c] The one who claims to love the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) without loving the poor people is a liar.

Benefit and Rulings from Sūrah Al-Hujarat Āyah 1 – Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz

Allaah (The Most High) said:

 يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تُقَدِّمُوا بَيْنَ يَدَيِ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ ۖ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

O you who believe! Do not put (yourselves) forward before Allah and His Messenger.” [Soorah Al-Hujuraat Ayah 1]

Imaam Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said:

In this great Soorah there are lofty benefits and rulings. The Muslims are greatly in need of understanding (it), being conscious of it and take benefit from it. In the first part, there is a warning against putting oneself forward before Allaah and His Messenger. And that which is obligated on the People of Eemaan is that they are to be followers and not innovators, and that they do not put themselves forward before Allaah and His Messenger.

The people of knowledge say (that this ayah means): ‘’Do not speak until you are commanded by Allaah and His Messenger, and do not act until the Messenger acts and legislates; do not put (yourselves) forward before him with either speech or action, (but) be you followers of that which has been prescribed for you and that which has been made clear for you in the (Islamic) legislation. This is the way the people of Eemaan are to be -they do not innovate acts of worship and rulings in Allaah’s Sharee’ah.

[وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيم – And fear Allah. Verily! Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing]

Allaah hears their statements and nothing is hidden from Him with regards to your state of affairs. He hears the statements of the slaves and He knows their state of affairs. He knows the truth you utter and other than it. He knows what you do, the truth you utter and other than it. The meaning of (this is that): Be mindful of Him and be warned about (disobeying Him) because nothing is hidden from Him. He hears and He knows your state of affairs. Therefore, it is obligated on you to be followers, and not innovators in Allaah’s Sharee’ah.

Until we meet Allah – Ash Shaykh Rabee bin Haadi Al Madkhakee

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Al Imaam Ash Shaykh Rabee bin Haadi Al Madkhalee – May Allah preserve him – said:

“Indeed the meaning of
steadfastness
upon the sunnah, is steadfastness upon Islaam in its entirety: its foundations; its branches; the aqeedah and the manhaj. We are steadfast upon it and cling tight to it until we meet Allah – tabaaraka wa ta’aala.”

Allah’s will is tied to His knowledge and wisdom – Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Ibn ‘Uthaimeen said:

Everything [brought about] by the will of Allah is coupled with His wisdom. That is because Allah The Mighty and Majestic doesn’t simply ordain mere decrees, but rather His decree comes from His wisdom. The proof of that is His statement The Most High:

But you cannot will, unless Allah wills. Indeed, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise. (76:30)

His statement The Most High “Indeed, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise” indicates that His wisdom is tied to knowledge and wisdom.

Knowledge of Allah’s names and attributes; a cause of increase in imaan – Shaykh Ibn Uthaimeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaimeen said:

Among the causes that bring about increase in one’s imaan is having knowledge of Allah’s names and attributes. Whenever the slave increases in awareness of them, of their implications and effects, then imaan in His Rabb will [consequently] increase, as well as love and veneration of Him. Likewise, contemplating over the universal and legislative signs, whenever the slave observes them, pondering over their amazing power and their superb wisdom (of Allah demonstrated within them), then his imaan will without doubt increase.

Greater need for humility of the heart than of the limbs – Shaykh Ibn Uthaimeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Ibn ‘Uthaimeen said:

Humility of the heart is in greater need of being observed than humility of the limbs. That is because the one who has awe of Allah in his heart is [consequently] more observant of Allah The Mighty and Majestic and of His rights.

Hence, it is necessary for humility of the heart to be paid attention to more than humility of the limbs.It is possible for any individual to practise humility of the limbs, even inside his house. Everyone is able to stand praying motionlessly [out of apparent humility], however having a heart that is heedless. Therefore, it [the heart] is the basis. It is that that requires a person to pay attention to, taking constant and absolute care of it.

Tafsir Surah Yasin, p.36.
