Benefit: "Follow the Religion of Ibrāhīm Ḥanīfā" (What Is Ḥanīfiyyah?)

Written by Yūsuf Yūsuf on . Posted in Brief Benefits

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

In Sūrah al-Naḥl, Allāh says, the meaning of which is: "Then, We have sent the revelation to you: 'Follow the religion of Ibrāhīm Ḥanīfā and he was not of the Mushrikīn'" [Sūrah al-Naḥl, 16:123]. Allāh mentions Ḥanīf in His Book many times. In addition to that, in the aforementioned verse, Allāh commands us to follow the religion of Ibrāhīm Ḥanīfā. What does Ḥanīf mean, both linguistically and in Allāh's legislation? What does Ḥanīf have to do with Prophet Ibrāhīm ʿalayhi salām? How can we obey Allāh in this command? Listen to our brother, Abū ʿAbdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī, as he provides answers to these questions from the explanation of the book, The Three Fundamental Principles, as explained by Shaykh ʿʿUbayd al-Jābirī and Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān.
