Shaykh Rabee: Where is the Action?

Shaykh Rabee (hafidahullāh) in a treatise addressing the current state of the Muslims and the Muslim ummah, exhorted the Muslims to return to following the Book of Allāh and the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallāhu alaihi wa salam), as this is the cure to rectifying the ailments of Muslims in all aspects of their lives, he (hafidahullāh) asks us,

Where is tawheed in our lives?
Where is the correct aqīdah?
Where is the correct manhaj?
Where is the action upon the knowledge we have learnt?

He (hafidahullāh) also said,

“We memorise (the Qurān), and memorising is sought after, however where is the action, where is the action?

Does the Qurān not call us to unity?!
Does it not call us to holding tight to the Book and the Sunnah?!
Does it not call us to abandon falsehood?!
Does it not call us to abandon innovations?!
Does it not call us to fight against shirk and misguidance?!”


Slightly Paraphrased from Majmū’ of Shaykh Rabee Vol.4 Pg. 104

The Most Dangerous Affair Affecting The Ummah – Shaykh Al Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan (Hafidahullah) said:

“The most dangerous affair upon the ummah right now, are the ignorant callers who don’t know (i.e. do not possess) knowledge and they call the people with ignorance and misguidance.”

The People of Bid’ah Are The Ones Who Start The Wars

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

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

The wars that take place between the Muslims and the splitting are only brought about by the people of desires, such as the Khawaarij, the Mutazilah and other than them! The people of desires are the ones who cause the fitnah—the Mutazilah, the khawaarij, the Rawaafid (Shiites) and other than them. Fitnah does not occur except from them and as a result of them. Who murdered Uthmaan (radiyallaahu-anhu)? Who murdered Ali (radiyallaahu-anahu)? Who were the ones that ignited the fitnah between the Muslims thereafter? It was none else other than those people of desires. Who misled Al-Mamoon and those rulers who came after him to put Ahlus Sunnah to trial, until their Imaam Ahmad Bin Hanbal (rahimahullaah) was beaten and imprisoned? It was none else other than the people of desires. Who brought about the imprisonment of Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) until he died in prison? It was none else other than those people of desires! It is upon us to be cautious of these people because the end result of their fitnah leads to the splitting of the unity of the Muslims, rebellion against the Muslim rulers and splitting the Jamaa-ah of the Muslims, so that they become divergent groups and parties, which is the opposite of being one united Ummah.

Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari–”It Is obligatory to attach the Ummah to the…………….”

Shaikh Abdullah Bukhaari (hafidha-hullaah) stated:

It is obligatory to attach the Ummah to the Rabbaani Scholars, those who are well known for their goodness, steadfastness, leadership and and sound advice to the Ummah–and they are those who teach the smaller affairs of knowledge before the greater affairs. Therefore, their status must be made known amongst the people, because the scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets, as reported in the narration from the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).

 

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) in explaining this hadith stated:

This is among the greatest virtues of the people of knowledge; and because the Prophets are the best of the creation, therefore their inheritors are the best after them.  And when it is the case that every one that is inherited from passes on inheritance to his inheritor, then the inheritors are those who take the place of those they inherit from. None will take the place of the Messengers in propagating what they have been sent with except the scholars.  They are the most worthy of their inheritance.

Guidance For The Youth Of The Ummah-Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (hafidha-hullaah)

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

Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan stated: All Praise is be to Allaah Lord of the Aalameen, and may His Peace and Blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), his household and his companions.  To proceed:

The youth of the nation are the foundation of humanity upon which the nation is made to stand firm; and the young men are the successive generation to shoulder the responsibilities after their fathers.  They possess bodily strength and are thoughtful, and they possess new talent not possessed by the elders.  The elders possess wisdom and experience and the youth possess strength and vigour. Therefore, if the youth and the elders co-operate for the advancement of the nation, a lot of good will result from that.
