Principles in Honouring Guests – Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan

Principles in Honouring Guests

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidahullah) was asked:

Is it permissible for a person to serve his guest khamr (intoxicants) alongside his food, if the guest requests it?

He replied: The principle regarding the guest, is that he is honoured with that which Allah (The Glorified, The Most High) has allowed.

Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa salam) said:

“Whoever believes in Allah and the last day, then let him honour his guest.” (1)

Honouring the guest is a characteristic from the the characteristics of the believer, however it is not honouring him to present him with something which is haram and impermissible. Rather present and serve him with that which Allah (The Glorified, The Most High) has allowed, as for the prohibited, then if he serves it to his guest, indeed he has aided him upon disobedience, and Allah (The Majestic, The Most High):

‎وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ

Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Soorah Al-Maa’ida: 2)

Truly honouring the Prophet – Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam – Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen – Rahimahullaah – said:

If you wish to honour The Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم with the form of honour that he deserves عليه الصلاة والسلام then execute his commands and refrain from matters that he has prohibited in everything that you say and do. By way of that you will become one who has honoured The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Golden Advice And Medication For The Heart

Golden Advice And Medication For The Heart

Ibn Abee Haatim(.328H) Rahimahullaah said:

”I entered Damascus and came upon the students of hadeeth, and I passed by the circle of Qaasim al Joo’ee(d.248 AH). I found a group sitting around him and he was speaking. Their appearance amazed me; and I heard him saying:

”Seize The Benefit Of Five Things From The People Of Your Time:

When you are present, you are not known;

When you are absent you are not missed;

When you are seen, your advice is not sought;

When you say something, your saying is not accepted;

And when you have some knowledge, you are not given anything for it.

I Also Advise You With Five Matters:

When you are treated unjustly, do not behave unjustly;

When you are praised, do not become happy;

When you are criticised, do not become upset;

When you are not believed, do not become angry;

And if people act deceitfully towards you, do not act deceitfully towards them.”

Ibn Abee Haatim said:”So I took that as my benefit from Damascus.”
