[1] From the stories of Al-Allaama Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee

Al-Allaama Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madhalee (may Allaah preserve him) said:

I remember we were on a journey to one of the Arab countries-unfortunately-and arrived at one of the hotels; then we said, ”direct us to a restaurant”, and they directed us to what they claim was the best restaurant.   We sat down and got the menu list and in it was alcohol and swine meat.  So we said to the one who gave us the menu list: ”Are you a Muslim?” He said: ”Yes, I am a Muslim.”  We said: ”How can you serve alcohol and swine meat to diners?” He said: ”This is my sustenance and from where would I eat then?” We said to him: ”your sustenance is with Allaah (Glorified and Exalted Be He).  Indeed Allaah has guaranteed your sustenance and the doors of sustenance are open, so fear Allaah.”  And we advised him in every way.

The testimony (in this incident) is that some of the Muslims work in some of the hotels in which there is alcohol and they serve swine meat.  This is in an Islamic land (in which) alcohol and swine meat are served, so how about those who travel to Europe?  I believe that many of them may work in these hotels, serving swine meat to those who eat it amongst the sinful Muslims, the Muslim evil doers and the disbelievers.  This is from the greatest affairs of wrongdoing and from the greatest of the major sins, and it may be a means to an evil end (in this life).  And Allaah’s protection is sought.

The Places of Residence are Three: ibn ul-Qayyim

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan mentioned in his explanation of Kitab at-Tawhid under the chapter [The Virtues of Tawhid and that which it Expiates from Sins], “The places of residence – as ibn ul-Qayyim mentioned – are three;

The First: The residence of this world, and it is the residence of actions and gaining [good deeds].

The Second: The residence of the Barzakh, and that is the residence within the graves, a barzakh between this world and the Hereafter. The term barzakh means a “divider” or “barrier” [i.e. the life within the graves is the seperator between this world and the Hereafter], and the life within the graves is [therefore] termed as the life of the barzakh. Within it are amazing affairs; in it is blessing or punishment,either a pit from the pits of the Hell-Fire, or a garden from the gardens of Paradise. The dead remain in their graves until Allah the Mighty and Majestic wishes to resurrect and gather them for accountability and recompense…[and so] this residence is a waiting station [until resurrection].

The Third: The residence of recompense, which is the Day of Judgement, [either] Paradise or Hell; and this residence does not perish nor cease ever. If a person believes in these two abodes [Paradise and Hell], then indeed that will cause a person to perform righteous actions and [seek] repentance from sins and wrong-doing. So if he is certain that Paradise exists, and that he cannot enter this Paradise except with righteous actions – then [surely] he will act [upon righteousness]. [Similarly] if he is certain that Hell exists and that he will enter it [if he performs] sins, disbelief and evil actions – then [surely] he will be wary and cautious of that and repent to Allah the Mighty and Majestic.

Therefore, eemaan in Paradise and Hell causes the slave to perform righteous actions and to seek repentance from sins and evil actions, as for the one who does not believe in the Hereafter, then this one will act in accordance to what his desires dictate to him and what his soul craves and he will not hold himself accountable [and reflect] ever”.

Some Admonitions of Abdullaah Bin Mas’ood (radiyallaahu-anhu)

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

He (radiyallaahu-anhu) said:

‘’Indeed, you see a disbeliever with the healthiest body amongst the people and with the sickest heart; and you will come across a believer with the most upright of hearts and the unhealthiest body. I swear by Allaah, if your hearts were sick and your bodies healthy, you will be more insignificant to Allaah than dung beetles.”

He Who Deceives The Muslims In Their Religious And Worldly Affairs Is Not From Them

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


Imaam as-Saa’di (rahimahullaah}said: ”He who deceives the Muslims in their Religious and Worldly Affairs is not from them”


Amongst the benefits of Naseehah (sincere advice) is safety from deceit. Indeed, he who deceives the Muslims in their Religious and Worldly Affairs is not from them. Deceit is from the most repugnant of ugly traits as it relates to (fulfilling) the rights of a relative and the non-relative, the (rights) of the one in opposition (to you) and the one in agreement.  The Great Qur’aan calls to this quality, which is from the best of qualities. It (naseehah-sincere advice) is that which the Religion of Islaam is founded and upon which its structure is made to stand firm, and through which its superiority over everything else is manifested. Indeed, giving sincere advice to every individual is commended by the sharee-ah, the sound intellect and the natural disposition, and that which is in opposition to it is repulsive to the sharee-ah, the intellect and the natural disposition.
