Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis conveys a lecture regarding a small yet comprehensive reminder.
A brilliant in-depth lecture regarding the trickery and deception of Ahl al-Bidʿah, and an admonition against the likes of misguided individuals such as Usāmah al-Qūsī, Abū al-Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Muḥammad al-Maghrāwī, Yāsir Qaḍhī and Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī.
Our noble brother, Abū Khadījah, goes into detail concerning the importance of having love for the Salaf and the Scholars of the Sunnah, both past and present. Having love and allegiance for them is a sign of one's īmān, and there is not a true believer except that they love these scholars who deserve our total love, respect and allegiance due to their diligence and striving in serving the Sunnah and conveying its true understanding to all corners of the earth.
The Salafī does not harbour ill thoughts towards the Salafis and the Scholars, and we do not fall into the foolishness of those who speak against them and claim they are just men from amongst men. No doubt they were men, but you, O Hizbī are not like them, and your understanding is not like their understanding, and their level is not the same as your level, so do not deceive yourself. They were a people who strived in upholding the Sunnah and did not sell their manhaj for a cheap price. You are obligated to follow them in their understanding, to follow the best of generations, but they are not obligated to you in anything. These Imāms conveyed the message of Islam which remained throughout generations, and it is from their superiority that they are quoted generations after their death, and many people have been guided to Islam and the Sunnah due to their clarification of the truth and their refutation of misguidance.
There will be groups present within every generation who will have hatred for the aʾimmah, breaking off and opposing them instead of allying with them, and these are from the distinguishing signs of Ahl al-Bidʿah. This hatred and opposition nullify the perfection of Imān due to the saying of the Messenger concerning the one who loves for the sake of Allāh then he has perfected īmān.
Imām Aḥmed (raḥimahullāh) mentions: "All praise is for Allāh, who in every age and interval between the Prophets, raises a group from the people of knowledge who call the misguided to guidance, yet patiently bearing ill-treatment and harm. With the Book of Allāh they bring life to the dead and by the Light of Allāh they give sight to the blind, and how many a person killed by Iblīs have they revived, how many people astray and wandering have they guided, and how beautiful has been their effect upon the people, and how vile the people have been towards them."
Allāh aided these lions of the Sunnah and raised the banner of Islam and Sunnah by way of them. So whoever from these times hates the likes of Ibn Taymīyyah, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb, Shaykh Ibn Bāz and al-Albānī, then his manhaj is known and it is a sign that he is upon the path bidʿah. As for us, then we have warā and maḥabbah for these scholars due to their striving.
Today we have many present amongst us who adorn themselves with the garb of Salafīyyah, yet beneath this beautiful attire lies a devil in wait. They are like a sponge that will soak you up and squeeze you out into the ranks of al-Ikhwān al-Muslimīn, without you even realising it.
From them are the likes of the Abū Usāmah al-Dhahabī al-Amrīkī, an individual known for his alliance with organisations such Jamʿiah Iḥyā al-Turāth and the various Jamʿīyyāt in Britain and elsewhere which the Scholars have refuted and warned against. A defender and translator for the likes of Abu Ḥasan al-Maghribī, Maghrawī, Usāmah al-Qūsī and other than them, praising the likes of al-Qaradawī and Zakir Naik. A man who wages war against Ahl al-Sunnah, but holds hands and skips alongside Ahl al-Bidʿah.
There are those who present themselves with the Sunnah but are upon deviance and opposition, like Yāsir Qadhī who signed the Pledge of Unity, alongside signatories who are from the Shiʿah, Sūfīyyah, Jahmīyyah, grave worshippers and callers to shirk. People whom Yasir Qadhī claims that sitting with them increases him in īmān. A man who has claimed to study al-ʿAqīdah al-Waṣiṭīyyah, and has translated Kitāb al-Tawḥīd. In truth, this is merely proof against him and not for him, since what benefit did he attain when he sits, allies and condones the very people who hold the beliefs which the subject matter of these books refute. He revels in the label of 'Shaykh' and 'Scholar' whilst cutting the people off from the real scholars under the pretence that they are not connected to the West, and do not live in the same world as we do. Clearly, Yāsir Qadhī lives in a very distorted and deluded version of the world we live in. These individuals like Yāsir Qadhī, Bilāl Philips, and Abū Muslimah wish to place a fortress between you and the ʿAqīdah of the Salaf and our noble scholars such as Shaykh Rabīʿ and Shaykh ʿUbayd (hafiẓahumallāh). In their cooperation and alliance with the people of innovation, they have left off the enjoining of good and forbidding of evil, and this is due to their greater goal of political authority and status in the West.
The path of truth is long and its people are few, so don't be deceived by the oceans of opposition you receive, instead remain firm and steadfast upon it with the people of ḥaqq.
A three part lecture series covering the works of Abū Ḥātim al-Rāzī (d. 277AH) and Abū Zurʿah al-Rāzī (d.264 AH). The treatise entitled al-ʿAqīdah al-Rāziyayn (العقيدة الرازيين) is a short classical work expounding upon core tenants of the Islamic faith as well as expelling foreign innovatory concepts. The lecture series took place on the weekend of July 27-29th, 2018 (1439 AH) in Toronto, Canada.
An introductory ʿAqīdah lesson on al-Wʿaláʾ wa-al-Barāʾ الولاء والبرااء (Allegiance and Disallegiance), discussing what Allāh and His Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) love (الحب) and are pleased with, and that which Allāh and his Messenger (ṣalllAllāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) hate (البغض) and are displeased with. Loving and hating for the sake of Allāh being from the strongest handholds of Islām and deficiency in this is from the signs of weak īmān.
Weighing the affairs and acting in accordance to the relative benefit and harm is probably the principle whose neglect is responsible for every fitnah that has befallen the Ummah of Islām. So know it well, and do not fall into the traps that come along with ignorance of it!
Why Is Ḥanīfiyyah Specifically Ascribed to Prophet Ibrāhīm Although There Were Prophets Before Ibrāhīm Who Were Firm Upon Ḥanifiyyah?
Why we chose the Sunnah over the ḥizbiyyah of the ahlul-bid'ah. A detailed analysis of the quest for the truth over falsehood.
The first, main and primary foundation of the Call to Allāh, and why this is the case.
Al-Qawāʾid al-Muthlá (Exemplary Principles Concerning the Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allāh) is an exceptional book on the subject of ʿaqīdah authored by one of the greatest scholars of today, al-Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn. A simple, but well-founded and informative text, these lectures will provide any person with the correct understanding and application of Allāh's Names and Attributes. What are the beliefs of Ahl al-Sunnah with respect to these Names and Attributes? Can we call Allāh with what we like as we like? What are the angles of refutation for those who distort the texts, negate them completely, or liken them to the creation? Have a listen and become well equipped.
The famous Hāʾiyyah poem of Ibn Abī Dāwūd (raḥimahullāh) and its illustrious points concerning the correct Islamic ʿAqīdah was recently adapted using the explanation of Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān for the ʿAqīdah course, as part of the Summer Islamic Courses 2007.
An important series of lectures on ʿAqīdah, beginning with a point to point explanation of Khuṭbah al-Ḥājah. In the following audio Shaykh Ṣāliḥ Ibn Saʿd al-Suḥaymī (ḥafiẓahullāh) explains the purpose of the creation of jinn and mankind. Then he goes onto explain the three levels of our religion using the well-known ḥadīth of Jibrīl (ʿalayhī al-salām). These lectures include memorization of the Arabic text of the major points, providing an excellent tool for teaching the foundations of the religion.
al-ʿAllāmah, al-Shaykh Muḥammad Amān ibn ʿAlī al-Jāmī [born 1349/1927 - died 1418/1997] (raḥimahullāh) is from the well-known Scholars of ahl al-Sunnah. Originally born in al-Ḥabaashah (Ethiopia), he travelled to Saudi Arabia to seek knowledge. He was appointed to teach at the Islamic University and the Prophet’s Masjid in Madīnah, Saudi Arabia. He strove to call the ummah to the correct Aqīdah and Tawḥīd.
