Benefit: Allāh Decreed the Division of the Ummah

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

Shaykh ‘Abd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (رحمه الله) said:

Without a doubt, this division causes pain to every Muslim. It is mandatory upon the Muslims to gather upon the truth and to work together upon goodness and piety; however, Allāh decreed the division of the Ummah due to His great wisdom and praiseworthy objectives, for which He should be praised. No one knows its details except Him. Differentiating His awliyā’ [i.e friends] from His enemies and differentiating those who exert themselves to seek the truth from those who turn away from it, following their desires, are from those objectives.

Benefit: Allāh Looks Not to Your Bodies Nor to Your Faces; Rather He Looks to Your Hearts

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

From Abū Hurayrah ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Sakhr, may Allāh be pleased with him, who said: The Messenger of Allāh, may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace, said: «Indeed, Allāh looks not to your bodies, nor to your faces; rather He looks to your hearts [and deeds].1» 

Shaykh al-ʿUthaymīn comments:2

Allāh, the Perfect and Most High, does not look to the slaves and their bodies, and whether they are large or small in stature, nor whether they stand in good health or illness. He does not look to their faces, and whether or not they are beautiful or hideous. All of these affairs are of [absolutely] no significance to Allāh. Similarly, He does not look towards their lineage nor ancestry, and whether or not they are of nobility or ignobility, nor does He look towards their wealth. He does not look towards any of these affairs at all.

There lies no connection between Allāh and His creation except through at-taqwá (righteousness). Whomever possesses more taqwá of Allāh, is nearer to Him, and thus most honorable with Him, so do not take pride in your wealth, nor in your beauty, nor in your body, nor in your children, nor in your palaces, nor in your cars, nor in any worldly matter. Indeed, if Allāh granted you success in attaining al-taqwá, it is from the His Grace upon you, so praise Allāh.

Benefit: Allāh Provides for All His Creation

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

The noble Shaykh, ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī (حفظه الله), mentioned a fundamental principle the scholars derived from the statement of Allāh:

وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا أَوْلَادَكُم مِّنْ إِمْلَاقٍ ۖ نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْ
Kill not your children because of poverty; We provide sustenance for you and for them.
[Sūrah al-An‘ām, 6:151]

It is as follows: “Certainly, the One who provides for the parents is the One who provides for their children, so do not kill your children because of poverty.”

Narrated and translated by Musa Shaleem Mohammed who heard it directly from the Shaykh during his explanation of Fatḥ al-Majīd on October 13th, 2016.

Benefit: Allāh The Legislator Is Most Wise

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

Addressing women, Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razzāq ibn ʿAbd al-Muḥsin al-Badr said: “Women related laws—such as wearing the ḥijāb, observing modesty, avoiding free mixing, and staying indoors—were only legislated to protect women from harm and to preserve their status and honour.”
