Shaykh Al-Uthaymīn (Allah have mercy on him) said:
The legislated texts came urging with (cultivating and) taking good care of the youth; directing them to that which is good, upright and proper.
Therefore, if the youth are upright and proper – and they are the foundation and future of this nation, their uprightness is built upon strong pillars of the religion and manners – in the future they will be a light for this nation and righteous successors for our scholars, inshā Allāh.
“O mankind! it is you who stand in need of Allah” Soorah Fatir Verse 15
Shaykh Zayd bin Haadi Al Madkhalee (Rahimahullah) comments:
Meaning in need of Him in all affairs from their affairs, because they they did not have knowledge and awareness of Allah, nor His religion except after Allah revealed the books to the messengers and commanded them with conveying (the message to) their nations.
Therefore the creation are in need of Allah, with regards to knowledge and awareness of their religion, and they are in need of Him throughout their lives and sustenance and their living and their dying.
Yes, in need of Allah – The Mighty and Majestic – for He is the one who looks after their affair, the affairs of the religion and the affairs of the worldly life.

“It is a must that we cultivate ourselves upon the taqwa of Allah, and it is obligatory that we cultivate ourselves upon speaking the truth, and before that; that we search after the truth. So stand on the side of the truth and be a just witness for Allah, even if it is against yourself, your parents or your relatives.”
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy
The Prophet (صلي الله عليه و سلم ) said: “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock. A man is responsible for his family and his flock.” -Reported by al-Bukhaaree
We had our first day yesterday and All Praise be to Allah it went well.
We would like to thank Allah first and foremost for facilitating this for us, and to grant us success in continuing to educate our children and our community. This has been a long time coming but masha’Allah we have started, and we hope this is a positive first step to a fully fledged school.
Secondly we would like to thank all those who have taken part voluntarily and those who work in the school. Many brothers have tirelessly put in shifts before and after their normal jobs to set this up, working until late hours in the masjid. We would like to thank all those who donated also, and we ask that you continue to help us with this, as there are small bits and bats to finish. We will be posting pictures of the area up, most of which was done up on a tight budget and help. May Allah reward them all.
Lastly we would like to thank the brothers at The Salafi Independent School in Birmingham, the head and the staff for hosting us and giving us advice and pointers in setting out our curriculum, timetables and manner of teaching. May Allah reward them all and those involved in the establishment of that School.
