Benefit: Stand United upon the Truth!

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

Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (حفظه الله) stated: “The Ummah will only be strong, successful, and respected if it adheres to the Book and the Sunnah and avoids differing.”

ولا عزة و لا سعادة و لا كرامة للأمة في هذه الدنيا والآخرة, إلا بتنفيذ هذا الأمر الواجب, وهو الاعتصام بحبل الله جميعا , والابتعاد عن التفرق

Benefit: Swearing by the Muṣḥaf

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) said: “Swearing by the muṣḥaf—as some ignorant people do—is impermissible, since the muṣḥaf is not used for this purpose.”

لا يجوز استعمال المصحف في الحلف كما يفعله بعض الناس من الحلف على المصحف هذا شيءٌ لا يجوز، لأن المصحف لا يستعمل للحلف عليه وإنما هذا من فعل الجُهال.

Benefit: The Blessing of Safety and Security

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

  Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān:

وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ اجْعَلْ هَٰذَا بَلَدًا آمِنًا وَارْزُقْ أَهْلَهُ مِنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ مَنْ آمَنَ مِنْهُم بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ
And (remember) when Ibrāhīm said, "My Lord, make this (Makkah) a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allāh and the Last Day."
[Sūrah al-Baqarah, 2:126]

He (Ibrāhīm) began with supplicating for security before supplicating for provision because security is a necessity and the people would not be able to enjoy their provisions in a state of fear. Actually, it is not even possible to attain provisions in a state of fear.

Benefit: The Fifteenth of Shaʿbān Is Not Auspicious, As Some People May Think

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

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Sāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (رحمه الله) said:

Some people, on the fifteenth of Shaʿbān, make food and distribute it as charity to the poor. They think that this day is auspicious for giving charity, but that is not the case. In reality, this is an innovation, and the fifteenth of Shaʿbān is not virtuous. It is like [the fifteenth of] any other month. There is nothing virtuous about it, except that if he (ﷺ) would fast the white days [i.e. the thirteenth, the fourteenth and the fifteenth of the Islamic month], then he would fast the fifteenth day. As for singling its night with prayer and its day with fast, then there is no basis for that. There is nothing confirmed from the Prophet (ﷺ) about this.

Benefit: The Imām Should Wait During the Rukūʿ for the People to Catch the Prayer

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

Question: Is it legislated for the one leading the prayer to wait whilst making rukūʿ [bowing] for those who are entering the masjid to catch up?

Answer: Yes, the prophet (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) would not lift his head up from rukūʿ until he heard the cessation of (people) walking, he would wait for those entering [to catch the prayer].

Benefit: The People of Truth Will Remain

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: No matter whoever goes with the fitnah, whoever deviates and whoever comes near [due to the fitnah], the truth and its people—walilāh al-ḥamd—will remain.

Benefit: The Prohibition of Sitting with Oppressive Fitnah Mongers

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

  Shaykh al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (حفظه الله):

"Allāh prohibited us from sitting with the oppressive people, and from the most oppressive of people are the dūʿāt (callers) to fitnah. Do not sit with them. Do not listen to them. Do not say, ‘I know [i.e. I have knowledge], and they will not be able to mislead me’. No! Do not praise yourself akhī."

Benefit: The Ruling on Going to Magicians for Cures

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

Question: I am afflicted with magic and went to a magician to cure me from the magic afflicting me, what is the ruling upon me?

Answer: It is not permissible to go to a magician, magic is not cured with magic, rather magic is cured by ruqyah al-sharʿiyyah, the noble Qurʾān, some permissible medicines and supplications [to Allāh]. So do not go to the magicians to cure you from magic but rather utilise the permissible medicines, supplications [to Allāh], reciting the Qurʾān, and Ruqyah until Allāh cures you.

Question: How about my going to the magician in the first place, what is the ruling upon that?

Answer: Upon you is to repent to Allāh, and do not repeat this act again.

Benefit: The Specified Times for the Morning and Afternoon/Night Adhkar

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

Shaykh Sālih al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) was asked about the specified times that an individual is allowed to make the morning, afternoon and night adhkar. He (حفظه الله) responded with the following:

The time for the morning adhkar [begins] from dawn, and the time for the afternoon/night adhkar [begins] from the diminishing of the sun, Ẓhuhr time. All of this is the time in which adhkar is done. All of them [i.e. the adhkar] performed at these times: after the diminishing [of the sun, Ẓhuhr time], after Ẓhuhr [i.e. after the Ẓhuhr ṣalāh], after ʿAṣr [i.e. after the ʿAṣr ṣalāh], after Maghrib [i.e. after the Maghrib ṣalāh] are [considered to be] the night [adhkar].

Therefore, if he makes the adhkar anytime in the night, then he has accomplished making it in its time. Likewise, the morning [adhkar]. If dawn appears [and] he makes the adhkar immediately after dawn—after the Fajr ṣalāh, after sunrise up until the sun is in the middle of the sky [this occurs just before the Ẓhuhr ṣalāh]—then all of this is the time for the morning adhkar.

Benefit: There Is No Legislated Form of Worship Specific to the Month of Rajab

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

 Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) was asked the following: There are those who single out the month of Rajab with fast; hence, is [there] anything that is confirmed [in the Sunnah to support this]?

The shaykh (حفظه الله) responded with the following:

There is nothing that is confirmed from worship that is specific to the month of Rajab; no fasting, no ṣalah, no ʿumrah—absolutely nothing at all specific to it. [As for] those who are singling it out with worship, then they are the innovators, since they introduced into the dīn that which is not from it.

Thus, Allah and His Messenger did not legislate any specific form of worship in Rajab; no ʿumrah, no animal sacrifice, no standing [in ṣalah] in any specific night, and no fasting in any specific day. Rajab is simply like any other month.

The month of al-Muḥarram [like Rajab] is sacred, since it is from the four sacred months. As for singling it out with worship, then this is from innovation.

Translator’s note: Despite the generality in the shaykh’s statement (حفظه الله): “Rajab is simply like any other month”, it is well known that Rajab is from the sacred months; therefore, it is unique from this perspective. What he means by this generality is that Rajab is just like most of the other months from the perspective that there is no specific form of worship such as ṣalah, ʿumrah, fasting, etc. legislated to be done in it, and Allah knows best.

Benefit: Time Is Running Out

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn al-Fawzān, may Allāh preserve him, comments:(1)

Reward and good can even be found in worldly deeds if one intends to use them as an aid upon obedience. So, what about deeds for the Hereafter? It is critical [then] not to waste time, but to use it instead for something that will benefit you..1

Benefit: Trials Faced by Some of the Muslim Youths Today

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

Shaykh Muḥammad Amān ibn ʿAlī al-Jāmī (رحمه الله) stated:

From the trials that some of our youths are faced with are:
[1] Hastiness to excommunicate Muslims
[2] Hastiness to accuse Muslims of heresy and misguidance
[3] Becoming quickly absorbed in dishonouring others

Benefit: Where Did the Term “Jāmiyyah” Come From?

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

The term “Jāmiyyah” [i.e. jamīs]—just like the term “Wahhābiyyah” [i.e. wahābīs]—are names which the people of Ḥizbiyyah—from the Ikhawīs and other than them—coin Ahl al-Sunnah, the Salafīs, those who are upon the way of the way of the pious predecessors, those upon moderation and the middle way, so that the people may turn away from their upright daʿwah upon the Book and the Sunnah.

This name [Jāmiyyah or Jamīs] first appeared during the invasion of Saddam Hussein in Kuwait and the other nearby nations. Thus, the scholars disapproved of this transgression and due to this a number of people who were supporting Saddam from the Ikhwanīs and Ḥizbīs stopped. Furthermore, Shaykh Muḥammad Amān al-Jāmī was among those who took it upon himself to refute these transgressions.

Benefit: Whoever Has Fasts to Make Up from the Previous Ramaḍān, It Is Necessary for Him to Do So in Sha‘bān before the Upcoming Ramaḍān

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

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) said: “It is not permissible to postpone making up fast [from the previous Ramaḍān] until after the other Ramaḍān [i.e. the new Ramaḍān] without an excuse, because of ʿĀʾishah's statement (رضي الله عنها): 'I had some fast to make up from Ramaḍān and I was not able to do so except in Shaʿbān because of my duties toward ِAllah's Messenger (ﷺ).'" (Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim).
