On Completion of our 5 Day Study Workshop with Ustadh Dr Abdulilah Lahmami

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

By the grace and mercy of Allah, we have just completed our long weekend of study. Alhamdulilāh it has been a busy time for us all, and a much needed and beneficial one.

The Brothers and Sisters present within the community here, were joined by those from many of the other cities and places including Stoke, Bradford, London, Birmingham, Bolton and more.

We ask Allah to reward our Ustādh, Dr Abdulilah Lahmami – for taking this time to visit, teach, sit with and benefit us.

📜 Books and Lessons Taught

During his time with us we managed to go through and complete:

📚 Shaykh Fawzaan’s explanation of the Muqadimah of ibn Abī Zayd al Qayrawāni. (14 sittings)
📚 Shaykh Rabī’s explanation of the Hadīth of Jibrīl. (3 sittings at Fajr time)

In addition to the above he delivered the Friday khutbah on the “3 affairs that will aid a person to remain upon istiqāmah”.

All of the above can be downloaded from our website learnaboutislam.co.uk 📲

ℹ Question and Answer Session with the Brothers.

In addition to the above; there was an impromptu and interactive tarbiyyah sessions with the brothers. Our Ustādh answered questions related to manhaj, gave advice on seeking knowledge, and took the time out to advise us with many important matters including:

1️⃣ Realising the importance and status of the scholars
2️⃣ How to behave in times of trials and tribulations
3️⃣ The importance of following evidences
4️⃣ Remaining united upon the truth, increase
5️⃣ Maintain brotherhood
6️⃣ Having humility and aiding one another upon good.

✍ Saturday School 🎈Final Day Reminder

Our Ustādh also attended the Saturday School certificates day; where the children’s hard work from the term is acknowledged and rewarded. He delivered an excellent and engaging reminder to the children about the importance of learning their deen. Likewise to the parents he offered beneficial advice regarding interacting with children; giving time to their cultivation; playing with them; and displaying good manners with both spouses and children.

📱 A Caution on Social Media ❗

Our Ustādh warned against getting caught up with social media personalities and refuted doubts that are spread regarding Salafiyyah and the Salafis. He shared guidance (some of which he has heard first hand) from Scholars such as Shaykh Rabī, Shaykh Ubayd, Shaykh Fawzān, Shaykh Muhammad al-Banna and others.

All of the above, took place from Thursday to Monday- concluding at Dhuhr time. We ask that Allah reward him, increase him in good and make his good deeds heavy on his scales.

Lastly then “whosoever does not thank the people, has not thanked Allah.” So with this in mind we would also like to extend our thanks to all those who helped to make this possible – amongst the brothers and sisters present. We ask that Allah the Most High, rewards them and blesses them to do even more, in future.

May Allah shower his blessings on us all, overlooks all of our shortcomings, pardons our sins and enter us into Jannah.

Sharing a Reminder From a Brother: Let Not a Day Goes by Except That We Are Certain That Our Parents Are Well, Safe and Happy, And Let Us Beware of Shaytaan When He Whispers Saying, ‘’You Are Busy with Work Today and Your Parents Are Ok, So Contact Them Tomorrow’’

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

Indeed, brothers and sisters our parents are a great gift from Allaah. They nurtured us and continue to supplicate for us. If our parents – whether they Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus etc- live in the same city, then that is a great blessing because serving them would be very easy. However, if they live far away or in another country with other family members, then let not a day goes by except that we are certain that they are OK. Let us beware of shyataan when he whispers to us, saying, ‘’Today, you have too much work to do and you are also busy with the kids. Your parents must be ok otherwise you would have been contacted immediately!’’

Yesterday [05/01/18] a brother -whose parents live in another country with other family members- contacted his parents to enquire about their welfare, so the father said: Alhamdulil laah we are all ok. Hope you’re all in good health in spite of the cold weather.’’

Today [06/01/18], the brother contacted his father to find out about their welfare again, so the father said: Wa alaykum salaam, I’ve been down with a bad stomach since yesterday evening.  My doctor came to the house last night and gave me some medication. It’s slowly getting better but not completely yet.’’

As for the mother, even though she spoke to the son on the phone, she never revealed that she was not feeling well. After speaking to the son on the phone, she texted saying: ‘’Just didn’t want to worry you, but I was unwell for the past two weeks. After the tonsillitis, I had stomach ache for a whole week. I was so weak and can hardly walk properly. I did not even tell your sister just not to get u guys worried thousands of miles away. On the 1st of January, I was in bed the whole day. Anyway, am much better now and back on my feet. Old age is not easy, but Alhamdulil-laah, your other siblings are around and wallaahi they are good people and do take care of me when am ill. I thank you all for always being concerned about my health and welfare. May Allah reward you all. Take care my son and my salams to all.’’ [End of quote]

Brothers and sisters, never should we be that busy to the extent that we forget to enquire about the welfare of our parents. We ask Allaah to forgive us our shortcomings and grant our parents abundant mercy Aameen. Indeed, we can never do enough to pay them back what they truly deserve.

Salaficentre: Two Important Objectives to Remember- [Consistency and Solidifying What One Learns]

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

Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] stated above that one should firmly cling to the book he is reading or revising, and should firmly cling to the Shuyookh he learns from in person. Do not be a Dhawwaaq [i.e. one who quickly acquires a taste of this or that and moves on to another thing without accomplishing anything properly]- alternating to a new Shaikh every week and every month; rather determine -first and foremost- who to take knowledge from in person, then firmly cling to him after you have decided. However, you can have different Shaikhs from whom you acquire different subject matters, for example you have a Shaikh who teaches you Fiqh and you carry on being consistent in your studies; another Shaikh who teaches you Arabic Grammar and you carry on being consistent in your studies; a Shaikh in Aqeedah and you carry on being consistent in studying Aqeedah and Tawheed. The most important thing is consistency and that you refrain from quickly acquiring a taste of this or that topic without accomplishing anything properly- like that man who is a serial divorcee, for whenever he gets married and stays with the wife for seven days, he divorces her and then moves on to another woman. So, he remains for a prolonged period in his life whilst neither enjoying [a fruitful, close, intimate relationship etc] with a wife nor having children in most cases.

Reminder Benefits The Believer: [General Reminder to Masjid Admin, School Admin and Those Who Offer Them Advice]

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

Reminder to the advisers

Firstly, advice should be accompanied with sincerity – free from all ulterior motives. Imaam As-Sadi [rahimahullaah] said: ”Among the benefits of Naseehah (sincere advice) is that it is a safeguard against deceit, for indeed whoever deceives the Muslims in their Religious and Worldly Affairs is not from them. Deceit is among the most repugnant of traits in relation to (fulfilling) the rights of a relative, a non-relative, the person who opposes you and the one in agreement. The Great Qur’aan calls to this quality (i.e. sincere advice), which is from the best of qualities. Indeed, giving sincere advice to every individual is praiseworthy in the divine Islamic Law and it is something in agreement with (sound) intellect and natural disposition. And what is in opposition to it is regarded repulsive in the divine Islamic Law and in opposition to (sound) intellect and natural disposition. [Ref 1]

Secondly, do not be opinionated when you give advice or make requests on behalf of others. Ibn Hazm [rahimahullaah] said: Offer not advice only on condition that it will be accepted nor intercede [on behalf of someone] only on the condition that [your intercession] should be accepted. Do not give a gift on the condition that [you will] receive something in return; rather do so only due to seeking after virtue and to fulfil that which is obligated on you that you should give advice, intercede [on behalf of someone] and to do good. [Ref 2]

Reminder to those who receive the advice – Be Humble When Advice Reaches You

Fudayl Ibn Iyaad [rahimahullaah] said: ”Humility is that you humble yourself to the truth and accept it from the one who says it. Humility is that you accept truth, even if heard from a child or the most Jaahil person. [Ref 3]
