Importance of Studying the Prophet’s Biography and Benefits of Doing so – Shaykh Sālih āl Ash-Shaykh

Studying the prophet’s biography (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) and reading it, causes:

  1. The certainty of the believer to become stronger.
  2. Makes his steadfastness and perseverance upon the religion of Allah stronger.
  3. Causes the believer’s heart to be honoured due to Islam.
  4. He is ennobled by the Tawheed of Allāh.
  5. Ennobled due to what his heart contains of knowledge and awareness of Allah.
  6. Ennobled due to his belief in Muhammad (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam).
  7. And ennobled by that which Allāh sent down upon his messengers.

وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

But honour, power and glory belong to Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad sallallāhu alaihi wa salam), and to the believers
(Al-Munāfiqūn: 8)

These are from the many benefits that every believer benefits from by studying the biography of The Chosen One (المصطفى) (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam).

Path of Allah – Shaykh b. Baaz

Path of Allah – Shaykh b. Baaz

Shaykh b. Baaz in explanation of the ayah where Allah informs us of Ibraheem’s (alayhis salaam) conversation with his father:

‎فَاتَّبِعْنِي أَهْدِكَ صِرَاطًا سَوِيًّا

“So follow me. I will guide you to a Straight Path.” [Soorah Maryam: 43]

Meaning, I will direct you to a clear straight path, which has no crookedness, nor secrecy in it. The straight path is the worship of Allah alone, obeying His commands and staying away from His prohibitions, stopping at His legislated divine limits,(1) this is Allaah’s Straight Path in regards to every prophet from the time of Aadam until the end of time.

Allah’s Straight Path:

It is to make your actions sincerely for Allah alone whilst following that which the prophets (alayhimus salaatu was salām) came with in every time and place. And the final of the prophets is our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa salam).

Allah’s Straight Path After the Sending of Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa salam):

It is believing in that which (the prophet) Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa salam) came with, following it and being steadfast upon it. This is the Straight Path which is mentioned in Allaah’s statement (The Mighty and Majestic):

‎اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ

Guide us to the Straight Way

‎صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ

The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray. [Al-Faatihah: 5-7] (2)

(1) Refer to explanation of Imaam Nawawee’s 40 Hadeeth, Hadeeth nos. 6

(2) Ayahs were numbered 5-7 based on the opinion that the basmalah is not part of Al-Faatihah, see fatwa of permanent committee and fatwa of Shaykh b. Baaz :

Where will Easa (alayhis salām) be Buried – Shaykh b. Bāz

“Is there a specific place for the burial of ‘Easa (alayhis salām)?”

Shakh ‘Abdul ‘Azīz b. Bāz (rahimahullah) was asked:

“Is there a specific place for the burial of ‘Easa (alayhis salām)?”

He (rahimahullah) replied:

This has been reported in some narrations, but there are observations regarding the authenticity that he will be buried in the prophetic garden (rawdah).

I do not know of anything established. This (burial place) has been mentioned by ibn Kathīr (rahimahullah) and others, however I am unaware of a connected chain (of narration) that he will be buried in the prophetic garden. (Therefore) this (saying) is not to be depended on, and Allah knows best.

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.

The Story of the Prophet Saaleh- Brief Uplifting Reminder

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

Allaah (The Most High) stated concerning those who disbelieved in His Messenger Saaleh (alayhis-salaam):

وَكَانَ فِى ٱلۡمَدِينَةِ تِسۡعَةُ رَهۡطٍ۬ يُفۡسِدُونَ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلَا يُصۡلِحُونَ

قَالُواْ تَقَاسَمُواْ بِٱللَّهِ لَنُبَيِّتَنَّهُ ۥ وَأَهۡلَهُ ۥ ثُمَّ لَنَقُولَنَّ لِوَلِيِّهِۦ مَا شَہِدۡنَا مَهۡلِكَ أَهۡلِهِۦ وَإِنَّا لَصَـٰدِقُونَ

وَمَكَرُواْ مَڪۡرً۬ا وَمَكَرۡنَا مَڪۡرً۬ا وَهُمۡ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ

فَٱنظُرۡ كَيۡفَ ڪَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ مَكۡرِهِمۡ أَنَّا دَمَّرۡنَـٰهُمۡ وَقَوۡمَهُمۡ أَجۡمَعِينَ

فَتِلۡكَ بُيُوتُهُمۡ خَاوِيَةَۢ بِمَا ظَلَمُوٓاْ‌ۗ إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَةً۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يَعۡلَمُونَ

وَأَنجَيۡنَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَڪَانُواْ يَتَّقُونَ

And there were in the city nine men (from the sons of their chiefs), who made mischief in the land, and would not reform. They said: “Swear one to another by Allah that we shall make a secret night attack on him and his household, and afterwards we will surely say to his near relatives: ‘We witnessed not the destruction of his household, and verily! We are telling the truth. So they plotted a plot, and We planned a plan, while they perceived not.  Then see how was the end of their plot! Verily! We destroyed them and their nation, all together. These are their houses in utter ruin, for they did wrong. Verily, in this is indeed an Ayah (a lesson or a sign) for people who know. And We saved those who believed, and used to fear Allah, and keep their duty to Him. [27:48-53]

In the city where Saaleh (lived) amongst his people, there were nine men whom Allaah described as mischief makers in the land. They neither had any (good) intention nor deeds of righteousness; rather they were prepared to manifest enmity towards Saaleh (alayhis-salaam) – spoke ill of his religion (of Tawheed and uprightness) and called their people to this enmity of theirs. [Ref 1] They used to shed blood, commit theft and violate the honour of women. They were also the ones who hamstrung the she-camel. [Ref 2]

Allaah (The Most High) informed us that Saaleh (alayhis-salaam) advised his people, saying:

فَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ

وَلَا تُطِيعُوٓاْ أَمۡرَ ٱلۡمُسۡرِفِينَ

ٱلَّذِينَ يُفۡسِدُونَ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلَا يُصۡلِحُونَ

So fear Allah, keep your duty to Him, and obey me. And follow not the command of Al-Musrifun [i.e. their chiefs, leaders who were polytheists, criminals and sinners]; Who make mischief in the land, and reform not. [26:150-152]

However, they did not cease to be upon this evil state of affairs until their enmity towards Saaleh (alayhis-salaam) led them to make an oath to one another that they will approach him and his family at night and murder them.  They also agreed that when they are confronted by Saaleh’s (alayhis-salaam) near relatives with the claim that they killed him, they will reject the claim and make an oath that they were truthful. So they plotted to murder Allaah’s Prophet Saaleh (alayhis-salaam) and Allaah also planned, but Allaah saved Saaleh (alayhis-salaam) and destroyed his disbelieving people.  Indeed, they never fulfilled their goal and plot.

This is the reality of the end result; so ponder upon the way in which Allaah (The Most High) deals with His Friends and His enemies! The end result of oppression will always be devastation and destruction, and the end result of Eemaan and justice will always be safety and success.

Allaah saved those who believed in Him, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the last Day and in His pre-decree (its good and it bad)—and they were also those who refrained from shirk and disobedience, and they obeyed Allaah and His Messengers. [Ref 3]
