Foundations for Our Teaching Establishments: Giving Precedent and Emphasis to The Aqeedah Over Certificates When Employing Teachers – Shaykh Rabee’ B. Haadi

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [May Allah Preserve and Protect Him] said:

“It is not befitting [or permissible] in any situation that [one] relies on certificates when choosing a teacher; rather it is obligatory -from the beginning- to take his Aqeedah into consideration, thoughts [or views], manners, Islam and adherence to his religion. This is a very important affair and there’s no way of getting away from it. The teacher who is deviated in his Aqeedah, thoughts or has weak mannerisms and behaviour; or he is negligent in carrying out acts of worship and the prayer -poses more danger to our children than deadly diseases.”

Prohibition of Free Mixing In Educational Establishments- Permanent Committee

Is it forbidden for a female students to free mix with males in the schools, colleges etc

Answer:

The reason behind the prohibition against free mixing between men and women is due to fear of falling into fitnah, lest it becomes a means to committing lewd acts; (a means) to violating the honour of women and corrupting the society. And indeed these affairs can become a greater reality through free mixing in education. Therefore, it (free mixing in education) is forbidden.

Giving in Charity – Open, Secretly, Pledges & Announcing Donations – Shaykh Uthaymeen (@salafi_school)

Question:

The questioner asks: Does informing the people about what a person gives in charity or making it apparent to them deprive the person who does this of the reward (of spending in charity)? For example if every person from a particular group of people were to give a certain (known) amount in spending.

Answer:

If a person manifests his charity or the sum contributed is manifested to the people, or other than it, then this does not reduce his reward; because Allaah has praised those who spend their wealth in private and public; rather sometimes it may be that spending openly is better than spending secretly if there is a benefit in making it open, such that the people follow his (i.e. the spender’s) footsteps and do what he did.  This may be similar to the one who guides to good and the one who guides to good is similar to its doer. “Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him in that until the day of resurrection.”(1) Yes. If a person knew in his heart that by manifesting it (i.e. spending in charity) he is intending to show off to the people and to be seen, so that they can praise him for performing this act of worship; then indeed this is from Riyaa, which a person must strive to free himself as much as he can. And Allaah is the one who grants success.


 

Shaykh Uthaymeen: Fataawa Noor ala ad-Darb page 12-13 vol 7


[1] A brief clarification: “Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him in that until the day of resurrection.”

Jareer ibn ‘Abdullaah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: “Some people from the Bedouin came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), wearing woollen garments. He saw that they were in bad shape and in desperate need, so he urged the people to give them charity. The people were very slow to respond, and it could be seen in his face (that he was upset). Then a man of the Ansaar brought a package, then another came, and another and another, and his face was filled with joy. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him in that until the day of resurrection.” Whoever starts a bad thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a burden of sin like that of those who followed him, without it detracting in the least from their burden.'” [Reported by Imaam Muslim (rahimahullaah) in Book of Zakat. Hadeeth Number 1017]

“Whoever starts a good thing in Islaam;” Starts acting upon a legislated Sunnah and it does not mean the one who innovates; because the one who innovates something (i.e. an act of worship that is not legislated) in Islaam, he will have it rejected. Rather, what is intended in this hadeeth is the one who was the first person to act upon that Sunnah, just like this companion who came along with a package to give in charity.  There are three ways of starting something in Islam:

  1. To start something bad and that innovation. It is something evil even if it is made to look good because the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ‘’Every bid’ah (in the religion) is misguidance.’’
  2. To start a good thing in Islaam and this occurs in two ways:
    1. A person revives an abandoned legislated Sunnah: A person finds that a legislated Sunnah in Islaam has been abandoned, so he revives it. For example the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) legislated the night prayer (i.e. Taraweeh, Qiyaamul Layl during Ramadhaan) behind an Imaam, but he abandoned it during the latter part of his life fearing that it may become obligatory for his Ummah. This continued during the time of Abu Bakr and the early part of Umar’s Khilaafah. However, Umar later revived this Sunnah by gathering the people behind a single Imaam in Taraweeh. So Umar started a good Sunnah in Islaam because he revived that which was abandoned.
    2. A person becomes the first person to act upon a legislated Sunnah: This happens when a person becomes the first to act upon that Sunnah, such as the man who came forward with charity and the people followed in his footsteps and gave in charity.

So there is nothing to be considered a good Sunnah in Islaam except that which has been legislated in the Sharee-ah. So whoever revives an abandoned legislated Sunnah or leads the way to performing a legislated Sunnah, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him.  However, some people have taken this hadeeth an excuse to innovate in the religion of Allaah that which is not from it.

We Encourage ALL to Participate in the righteous Project of establishing @salafi_school – @AbuMuadhTaqweem

الحمد لله و الصلاة و السلام على رسول الله و على آله و صحبه و من والى

Allah سبحانه و تعالى stated in the Qur’an “و إن تعدوا نعمة الله لا تحصوها” And if you would count the graces of Allah, never could you be able to count them.

Truly, the blessings of Allah upon us are great, such that the scholars, such as Shaikh Mohammad bin ‘Abdul-Wahhab and others, have stated that from the signs of happiness in this world and the hereafter is gratitude to Allah for the numerous blessings He bestowed upon us.

From such blessings that we demonstrate our gratitude to Allah upon is the establishment of the Salafi Da’wah in the Manchester region for well over a decade, with a masjid established, regular weekly lessons in ‘Aqeedah, Qur’an, Arabic, as well as the extremely successful Saturday School for children, and all praise is due to Allah.

In addition, it is a blessing that an opportunity to expand the bounds of the Da’wah further in establishing a full time school has arisen. I encourage all our noble brothers and sisters to participate in this righteous project (of @salafi_school) and aid in furthering the Da’wah, in establishing an educational institute to raise our children upon righteousness; to raise them upon the way of the Salaf.

By the blessing of Allah, the Salafiyyoon from far and wide have united in aiding the establishment and progress of the da’wah in Birmingham – SalafiPublications, Bradford – AlBaseerah, as well as our communities in Cardiff and recently East London – Athariyyah…and this unification upon aiding the truth and it’s people does not cease, for indeed no project is ever at an end. We ask Allah to keep us steadfast upon the upright methodology, to maintain our unity upon the truth and to be in the aid of ahlus-Sunnah each of us to the other.

Salafi School [Manchester] Announcement: Full time Nursery, Primary & Secondary School

Taken from the website: Please Click Here

 

New-School-Poster

By the permission of Allah, we find ourselves in a good position to start a school in Manchester.

We have been working hard to locate an adequate building. Our needs require us to take on a building large enough to accommodate a nursery, primary school and the current Saturday school; along with having the facilities to expand into a high school in the future. Such buildings do not come cheap, and the price to buy such a building would potentially cost us upwards of 700,000 in Manchester.

So we have decided to take the route of renting a building, locating a number of potential buildings that fulfil the above criteria. The rent falls between ?45,000 and ?55,000 per year for all of them.

The benefits of renting are that the upfront costs are low. It also allows us to make the building sustainable and workable, prior to asking for any large sums of money from the people; something that is a heavy burden and trust upon us. Obviously the disadvantages are that we would have to cover the rent costs every year. However if we have a large enough building with a decent number of children, then this cost will be serviceable.

The school will be run within the current charitable framework and will be fully independent and fee based. Although physically separate from the masjid, it will still be a part of the setup. There will be no single beneficiary of the fees, except the school and masjid as a whole and all praise is due to Allah.

We wish to follow the example of some of our noble brothers who have already set up a Salafi School with respect to their continuous striving to achieve high standards even in difficult circumstances. And we wish to make the school self-sustaining in the long term. However currently we would require some financial assistance in order to get this project up and running.
