Consequences of Argumentation – Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen – Rahimahullaah – said:

There isn’t a person (on the most part) who is prone to argumentation except that he becomes deprived from the blessing of knowledge. Because in general the one who argues desires by that to only support his own statement and by way of that becomes deprived from the blessing of knowledge.
As for the one who desires the truth, then indeed the truth is easy and attainable. It doesn’t require great debates, as it is clear.
Because of this you find that those people of innovation who debate in favour of their innovations, their fields of knowledge lack blessing, having no good to it. And you’ll find them arguing and debating and then arriving at nothing. They do not end up reaching the truth.
( تفسير سورة البقرة / ج2 / ص 444 )

Reflecting upon those whom Allah has favoured – Shaykh Ibnul Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen – rahimahullah- said:

The statement of Allah “The path of those whom you have favoured” is an evidence that it’s upon us to look into the lives of those whom Allah has favoured, as to who they were and what their condition was. This is so that we may be guided to their path. And an extension to that is an encouragement for us to know the biography of The Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم – due to him being the most favoured by Allah.

Laziness in Prayer – Shaykh Ibnul ‘Uthaymeen (Rahimahullah)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Whomsoever performs the Prayer upon a manner of laziness then in him is a resemblance to the Hypocrites…so be wary & cautioned from resembling the Hypocrites.
Perform the prayer with energy and happiness & pleasure; and by Allah, indeed the Believer in reality is certainly pleased when the (time for) Prayer arrives because he will stand before Allah and call upon Him.

Due to this, if you see in of yourself laziness in the Prayer then blame yourself because you are without a doubt comparable with the Hypocrites in this characteristic, so alter your way (regards to Prayer & all worship) toward Allah عز وجل and do not be negligent”

Repentance (Tawbah)

Allowance of Eating During Day in Ramadhaan When Breaking Fast Due to A Legislated Reason – Shaykh Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Question: Is it allowed for the one who breaks his fast during the day in Ramadhan due to a legislated sharia excuse to (continue) eating and drinking for the rest of the day?

Shaykh Uthaymeen  answered:

It is permissible for him to eat and drink because he broke his fast due to a legislated sharia reason. If he breaks the fast due to a legislated sharia reason, then the prohibition from eating on that day ceases in his case, and it becomes permissible for him to eat and drink; as opposed to the man who breaks his fast without a (legislated shiria reason), for indeed we make it binding on him to refrain (from food and drink), even if it is binding on him to make it up (as well). Therefore, it is obligatory to pay attention to the difference between these two affairs.

Correcting the statement “We Correct the People of Innovation but don’t Disparage Them”- Shaykh Bin Baaz & Others

Many people who wish to blur the lines between the people of sunnah and people of bid’ah (innovation and misguidance) make the statement “We should correct the people of innovation and desires only. We shouldn’t be too harsh, revile, boycott or criticism them.”

They intend by this, that the person of Sunnah lowers his guard against innovation, making them susceptible to absorbing doubts and innovation and corrupting his religion. Below are a few statements from the scholars addressing this doubt.

Salafi Centre

Shaykh Ibn Baz (rahimahullaah):

 “Indeed, criticism from the scholars and disparagement of him whose disparagement is obligatory is from the angle of sincere advice to the Ummah, and warning from his innovation or his deviation is a designated matter, just as the scholars of Islaam have done previously and continue to do so…”

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) was asked regarding the errors of Ahl al-Bid’ah, “We correct but do not disparage”, so he replied,

 “This is an error, rather we disparage the one who is stubborn against the truth.” And he said, “When the opposition is in the issues of belief, then it is obligatory for it to be corrected, and whatever is in opposition to the way of the Salaf, then it is obligatory to show rejection against it and to warn against the one who traverses upon that which opposes the way of the Salaf in this field.”

Shaykh al-Fawzan (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the principle, “We correct but do not disparage”, he responded,

“This principle has no basis, I say this principle has no foundation, it is binding to disparage the people of falsehood.”

And he was asked about the principle, “It is permissible to declare as erroneous but is unlawful to revile.”

So he responded,

 “This is just like (the principle) “we correct but do not disparage, it is the very same!”

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) was asked about the principle, “We correct but do not disparage”, he responded,

“This principle is not from the principles of the Rabbaani Scholars, those whose knowledge is relied upon. Rather, the principles of the Scholars knowledgeable of the purified legislation of Allah, both previously and in what continues is correction of that which is deserving of correction and appraisal of the one who is deserving of appraisal and disparagement of the one is deserving of disparagement in lit of the principles connected to this serious topic. This is what Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, the Righteous Salaf and their followers traverse upon until the Day of Judgement, and the books of al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel are not remote for (our) minds. Further, this principle contains deception of those whose knowledge of the legislation and its avenues is scant… And this is an error and the person in question is either ignorant, so it is obligatory to seek knowledge truthfully or he is a deceiver and one who is misguided the people, so Allaah is sufficient (over him) and we ask Allaah to guide him and return him to the truth with a beautiful return, aameen.”

What is the proof from the Qur’aan that sins prevents (a person) from understanding the Qur’aan?


Allaah the most high says:  كَلَّا بَلْ رَانَ عَلَى قُلُوبِهِم مَّا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ

[”Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to earn.’’ [83:14]   Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) derived from this ayah that sin is a cause of not (being able) to understand the Qur’aan.
