Benefit: Remember Allāh and Avoid Hypocrisy!

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) stated:

The continuous remembrance of Allāh [i.e. adkhār] is a protection from hypocrisy, since the hypocrites rarely remember Allāh. Allāh said about them:

وَلَا يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّـهَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا
“And they only remembered Allāh occasionally”
[Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:142].

Kaʿb (رحمه الله) said: “Whoever continuously remembers Allāh is free from hypocrisy.” Consequently, Allāh concluded Sūrah al-Munāfiqūn [i.e. The Sūrah of the Hypocrites] by saying:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تُلْهِكُمْ أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَلَا أَوْلَادُكُمْ عَن ذِكْرِ اللَّـهِ ۚ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ
“O you who believe! Let not your wealth or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allāh, and whoever does that then they are the losers”
[Sūrah al-Munāfiqūn, 63:9].

This is a warning from the fitnah of the hypocrites who fell into hypocrisy because they failed to remember Allāh.

Questioned about the Khawārij1, some of the Companions said: “They are not hypocrites as the hypocrites hardly remember Allāh.” Therefore, remembering Allāh continuously is a protection from hypocrisy, and only remembering Him occasionally is a sign of hypocrisy.

Allāh does not test the heart by filling it with hypocrisy as He is more honourable than that; rather, the heart is filled with hypocrisy because it has forgotten Allāh’s remembrance.


[1] One of the earliest deviant groups of which the Prophet (ﷺ) said about them:
يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الدِّينِ كَمَا يَخْرُجُ السَّهْمُ مِنَ الرَّمِيَّةِ ثُمَّ لاَ يَعُودُونَ فِيهِ هُمْ شَرُّ الْخَلْقِ وَالْخَلِيقَةِ
“They will pass clean through the religion just as the arrow passes through the prey, and they will never come back to it. They would be the worst among the creation and the creatures.” (Saḥīḥ Muslim 1067 from Abu Dharr)

Benefit: Concerning the Doubt - "It's Just Translations and Translators"

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 On the 24th of Jumādá al-Awwal, 1439 (2018/02/09), we asked the noble shaykh and scholar, Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná the following questions, after updating him on the progress of the Qawāʾid al-Arbaʿ class at TROID: 

[Q]: Shaykh, what should we advise those who whisper and cast doubts about the weekly classes [at TROID and in the West at large] saying, “why should we attend these classes when we can simply read the book ourselves [i.e. it's just translation]?”

[A]: This is the way of Ahl al-Sunnah, they do not teach from their own opinions, rather they read from the works of the scholars and from their explanations, like we did, as you witnessed when you were here with us [studying] in Egypt. Pay no attention to them. Continue in your way that you are upon now, teach the people and do not pay attention to them.

[Q]: Shaykh, there is a doubt going around regarding the students in the West being mere translators (مترجمون) and not students of knowledge.

[A]: So you are telling me they have been translating for the scholars for over 20 years and they learnt nothing in this time? This is nonsense. They [who say this] need to fear Allāh.

Benefit: Men Praying with Garments below Their Ankles

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-‘Uthaymīn (رحمه الله) was asked: “Does wearing a thawb (garment) that passes the ankles nullify the ṣalāh?”

He (رحمه الله) responded:

Whoever wears a thawb that passes his ankles has committed a major sin, since the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whatever is below the ankles is in the Fire.” (Reported by Imām Aḥmad with this wording.)

[As for the validity of the ṣalāh,] then the scholars differ over that. Some say even though the ṣalāh is valid, a man is sinful for wearing a thawb that passes his ankles. Others say his ṣalāh is invalid, since he wore a thawb that is ḥarām to wear. What is correct is that even though his ṣalāh is valid, he is sinful for wearing a thawb that passes his ankles.
