✅A Beneficial Visit to Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree with brief Q&A by brothers from @Salaficentre with 👤 Abu Idrees Muhammad @abuidrees as part of 👍 @taqwatravels on 📆 Monday 6 August 2018

On Monday 6 August 2018 / 24 Dhul Qi’dah 1439 we visited Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree hafidhahullah, in his house.

The Shaykh welcomed the Taqwa Hajj 2018 brothers warmly, he was kind and extremely hospitable, constantly asking his son if we had had enough Qahwa [traditional Arabic coffee]. The Shaykh had a very warm personality and beautiful sense of humour.

The Shaykh was in good spirits and appeared to be in good health. He enquired about all brothers’ names and ethnic origins and also enquired about Abu Khadeejah and Abu Hakeem حفظهما الله

Throughout the sitting the Shaykh emphasised the importance of speaking correct Fusha [classical] Arabic and spoke very eloquently himself.

Abu idrees حفظه الله informed the Shaykh that he started trips to Masjid al-Aqsa and has been there a few times. The Shaykh was pleased with this. He enquired about the safety of those who travel with Abu Idrees. The Shaykh then mentioned some benefits about Masjid Aqsa and its history.

The Shaykh gave a brief talk, translated in person by Ustaadh Abu Idrees حفظه الله. Here are some brief points:

After praising Allah and sending salutations to His Messenger he said:

I ask Allah that He accepts your Hajj and returns you safely to your families after you have completed your Hajj.

You are about to depart towards Makkah and should say:

لبيك اللهم بعمرة متمتعة الى حج

و ان حبسني حابس فمحلي حيث حبستني

And when you reach Makkah you should perform Tawaaf and sa’ee and then shave your head. [The Shaykh being over eighty, jokingly removed his Shimaagh from his head exposing his bald head, saying “like this”] then come out of Ihraam.

On the 8th day you should resume your Ihraam again and say

لبيك اللهم بحج

وان حبسني حابس فمحلي حيث حبستني

The brothers then asked a series of questions which the Shaykh answered.

Q1. I would like to apply to the Islamic university of Madinah, but my family requires my financial assistance. Should I go or stay at home?

Shaykh: If you go, will they struggle financially?

Questioner: Yes

Shaykh: Is there a [Salafee] centre in your locality?

Questioner: Yes

Shaykh: Then study there inshaaAllah, may Allah replace it for you with better.

Q2. When the pilgrim arrives in Makkah, fatigued or exhausted, should the pilgrim in this state, perform umrah immediately or should he rest first in these circumstances?

Shaykh: You should rest first and gain some strength

Q3. Eating camel meat breaks the wudhoo. Does this also apply to camel milk?

Shaykh: No, this does not apply to camel milk.

Q4. If a women is on her period and she was unable to make the Tawaaful Ifaadhah for Hajj but the time to return to her country is upon her [flight] what should she do?

Shaykh: She should wrap something around the area and complete her Hajj, and there’s no problem in that.

Q5. Is it permissible to take contraceptive pills to prevent periods during Hajj?

Shaykh: I do not advise she does this as this has been proven to be harmful to her and she should not do this.

The Shaykh then warmly greeted each brother individually and then advised one brother to change his name to either Abdullah, Abdirahim or Abdurahman. The brother later chose Abdullah.

Abu Idrees then informed the Shaykh that the group has arranged to see Shaykh Abdullah al-Bukhari immediately after. The Shaykh said: “relay my regards and salaams to him”. He then praised the Shaykh for his knowledge.

Imam Hassan al-Basri said: “The world is darkness except for the sittings with the scholars” Jaami’ bayanul ilm wa fadhlihi

Shaykh Abdul Aziz ibn Baaz, on Noor ala dharb said: “Visiting the people of knowledge and Imaan from Ahlu Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah and visiting brothers for the sake of Allah is a [means of] closeness to Allah and [an act of] obedience”

The Salaf would perform Hajj to gain its tremendous rewards and then take the opportunity to visit and benefited from the people of knowledge. Alhamdulilah, we were blessed and privileged to follow in their footsteps to continue this tradition. May Allah have mercy upon our Salaf, preserve our Mashaayikh and accept it from us.

Make the Qur’aan the focal point of your life… Your hereafter depends on it.

A small reminder to all of us from Al-Markaz as Salafi…. and a reminder benefits the believers.

Allah has blessed us with the opportunity in our communities to have people from different nationalities who have reached a good level of proficiency at reciting the Qur’aan. This is a great blessing from Allah.

The evidences regarding the importance of the Qur’aan and it’s virtues are numerous! We won’t go into them in detail but here is a brief summary:

Allaah (The Most High) said: “Indeed We have made the Qur’aan easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)” 54:17

When we look in the tafseer we find Imaam as-Saa’di saying that Allaah has made the wording of this noble Qur’aan easy- simple to memorize and accomplish, and He (The Most High) made its meanings easy to understand- because it is the best in its wording and most truthful in meaning. So whoever devotes himself to it, Allaah will make his seeking after it very easy and simple…(see tayseer al-kareem ar-rahmaan)

And we all know very well that the Qur’aan is a complete and perfect guidance. It is a “shifa” (cure) for all that in the souls and a “rahma” (mercy) from Allah. It is the true light of guidance and a “furqaan” (criterion) between truth and falsehood. It is a complete source of solace for the hearts and souls in times of distress and a means of strength in times of weakness. It is full of reward – with each letter being worth ten rewards.

Through it you can cure everything including scorpion bites, sadness and depression, jinn possession and magic… And it will cure these with a complete cure, leaving no trace of the ailment by the Will of Allaah.

We know that it will come as an intercessor on the day of resurrection for the one who recited and acted upon it.

So who from among us doesn’t want this?! All from just reading the words of Allah and acting upon it. One of the simplest things a person can do…

And there is no doubt reading is not difficult! We read hundreds of texts everyday, newspapers to articles, yet we nowhere near reach the level of being regular readers of the Qur’aan! It is reported from the Salaf that they would finish the Qur’aan at least once a month; with some once a week and others every few days even! As Salafis we should be following this example. Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen greatly emphasised this affair particularly to the Salafis because he felt that some of us do not give enough time to the Qur’aan.

Indeed it is a deficiency if we are not striving to improve our recitation and understanding of the Qur’aan even though we have qualifications, degrees or are proficient in other aspects of the dunyah sciences… a deficiency we must try to overcome.

So let us strengthen our bond with the Qur’aan!

Let those of us who cannot recite properly go to the teachers available in our Salafi Centres and Masaajid – Manchester, Bolton or elsewhere. They are sat waiting to teach us. Let us not be distracted by other small affairs… All of which pale in comparison to the Word of Allah.

And when the Qur’aan classes are scheduled then make a note of them in your diaries and phones and do not replace them with other things such as football, cricket and other activities… Yes these things maybe permissible but they are highly trivial in comparison to the Qur’aan and attending lessons in the Qur’aan. So it is better to arrange those things around the Qur’aan lessons.

And when attending the lessons then make those lessons the only thing that you are thinking about. Do not speak about trivial matters… Switch off your phones and spend the full hour or two in just reading the Qur’aan and learning it. Do not give shaytaan the chance to pull you away from the dhikr (remembrance) of Allah.

… Make the Qur’aan the focal point of your life… Your hereafter depends on it.
