A Reply to the Claim That Ibn Taymīyyah Supported the Mawlid


A clear uncovering of the Ṣūfī plot to clip Shaykh al-Islām’s words and make it look as though he was in support of the mawlid. Here, the reader will find the true position of Shaykh al-Islām, unedited, along with a clear exposition of the Ṣūfī lies surrounding this issue.

A Reply to the Ṣūfī Claim That Ibn Kathīr Supported the Mawlid


Yet another reply to the fallacious Ṣūfī fabrications against al-Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Kathīr with respect to the issue of the mawlid. This time they quote from a book in which he did not claim what they allege he did.

  Explanation of the Ḥadīth of the Believers Being One Body

The Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said in an authentic Ḥadīth, "The example of the believers is that they have mutual love for each other, they have mutual mercy for each other and they are like one body. If one part of the body suffers, the whole body suffers." Shaykh Muḥammd ibn Hādī al-Madkhali explains in great detail the meaning of this Ḥadīth and how it applies to the lives of the Muslims. (From the 2012 Dawrah in Medīnah, Saudi Arabia, hosted by the brothers at Salafī Publications.)


Benefit: Frequent Supplication of the Prophet (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)

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

On the Authority of Anas ibn Mālik (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhu) who said: The Prophet (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) used to frequently supplicate by saying:

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Our Lord! Give us that which is good in this world and that which is good in the hereafter, and save us from the torment of the Fire!

Benefit: The Call of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)

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

In the times that we live in, there is no doubt about the multitude of those calling to 'Islām'. For some, what is intended by 'Islām' is the call to revolutions and overthrowing rulers. For others, 'Islām' represents the call for the unity of religions. As a result of this widespread confusion, it is imperative upon the Muslims to look at the way of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) in how he called to the true and correct Islām. Our brother, Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis, highlights the methodology of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) in calling to the truth and cultivating the Companions, may Allāh be pleased with them. So, lend your ear to this brief benefit. May Allāh give you success and save you from the tribulations of our time.


Benefit: The Character of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam)

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

From the Mercy of Allāh is that He sent to us a messenger, as He says in Sūrah-Anbiyāʾ', "and We have not sent you except as a mercy for the 'Ālamin." The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) was a person of great character and virtue. Allāh says in Sūrah-Qalam, "And Verily, you are on an exalted (standard of character)." In the study of the seerah of the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) our brother Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson explains his numerous, virtuous qualities. Listen to this short benefit. May Allāh reward you, so you can make your character like that of the best of creation!

Benefit: The Humility of the Messenger of Allāh

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

There comes a Ḥadīth in the Musnad of Imām Aḥmad (raḥimuhullāḥ):

A man once said, “O Muḥammad! [You are] our chief and the son of our chief! The best of us and the son of the best of us.” 

The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) replied: “O people! Upon you is to hold fast to taqwá (piety) and let not the Shayṭān allure you. I am Muḥammad the son of ʿAbdullāh; I am a servant and Messenger of Allāh; I do not like for you to raise me above my level which I have been stationed by Allāh.” 

Imām al-Albānī said its chain is ṣaḥīḥ according to the conditions of Muslim.

Benefit: They Say: "We Hear and We Obey"

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

The only saying of the faithful believers, when they are called to Allāh (His Words, the Qur ʾān) and His Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam), to judge between them, is that they say: “We hear and we obey” [Sūrah al-Nūr: 24:51]. Shaykh ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Saʿdī (raḥimahullāh) comments: (The only saying of the faithful believers) Meaning: indeed, those whose deeds attest to their belief when called to Allāh and His Messenger to judge between them, no matter whether the judgment agrees with their desires or not. (Is that they say: “We hear and we obey”) Meaning: We hear the judgment of Allāh and His Messenger and we respond to the one who called us to Him, and we obey with a complete obedience that is free from any distress or hesitation.1

Benefit: What to Do When Encountering Narrations That Mention the Messenger

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
  What to do when encountering narrations that mention the messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) without the statement "sallāllāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam" after reference to him (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam).

[Q]: We were hoping that we could perhaps be given a little direction in this query, Allāhu yubārik fīk. Recently in our hifdh circle, we came across a hadīth where the narrator mentions the messenger of Allāh, SallAllāh ʿalayhī wa-sallam; however, the salutations on the Messenger are not mentioned within the hadīth by the narrator. The hadīth is below: 

Ḥadīth 21, Imām Al-Nawawī's 40 Aḥādīth.

On the authority of Abū 'Amr- and he is also known as Abū 'Amrah Sufyān ibn ʿAbdullāh (raḍī Allāhu ʿan hu) who said: I said, ''Oh Messenger of Allāh, tell me something about Islām that I cannot ask anyone other than you.'' He said, ''Say, 'i believe in Allāh and then remain steadfast upon that'' (related by Muslim).
pg 120 Explanatory Notes on Imām al-Nawawī’s Forty Aḥādīth -Revisited (Tarbiyyah Publishing) 

The sisters were unsure how to approach this when memorising, bearing in mind the ḥadīth of the Messenger where he descends from the pulpit saying "ameen" on three ocassions, one being in response to Jibra'eel rebuking (may his nose be rubbed/covered in dust) the one who does not send salutations on the Messenger when he is mentioned.

We were wondering do we send salutations on the Prophet when being tested in recalling the ḥadīth, or do we memorise the ḥadīth as it is; verbatim?

BaarakaAllāhu fīka

[A]: Read the text out loud as is, do not add anything, and say "ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam" silently to yourself. This is what my shaykh, Muḥammad ʿUmar Bāzmūl (may Allāh preserve him) does when he recites khuṭbah al-haajah intending to recite it verbatim as a text. He pauses and says "ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam" under his breath when he gets to wa anna muhammadan abduhu wa rasooluhu.

And Allāh knows best.

Benefit: Whoever Belies Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) Has Belied Every Prophet

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

Ibn Taymīyyah (d. AH 728) said: 

Whoever believes in Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam), has indeed believed in every Prophet. And whoever obeyed him has indeed obeyed every Prophet. Whoever belied him, has indeed belied every Prophet. And whoever disobeyed him, has indeed disobeyed every Prophet.1 

The Most High, said: 

«Verily, those who disbelieve in Allāh and His Messengers and wish to make a distinction between Allāh and His Messengers (by believing in Allāh and disbelieving in His Messengers), saying: "We believe in some but reject others," and wish to adopt a way in between, they are in truth disbelievers.» 
[Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:150]

And He, The Most High, stated: 

«Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allāh is not unaware of what you do.» 
[Sūrah al-Baqarah, 2:85]

Discussion of Ḥadīth on Mawlid


A full takhrīj of the famous narration used by Ahl al-Bidʿah to justify their celebration of the Prophet’s birthday.  Know – O Sunnī – that even if this weak ḥadīth could be considered authentic, then it would be referring to the ʿaqīqah of the Prophet and not his birthday.

Divine Acquittal

  Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson

Our elder and teacher, Abū al-ʿAbbās (ḥafiẓahullāh) continues his sīrah of the Prophet Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) series, and goes through the heartbreaking narration of the Ḥadīth of ifk (slander) of ʿĀʾīshah (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhā), bringing forth a number of tremendous benefits.

Emulating the Actions of the Prophet

  Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (d. AH 1421)

Narrated Ibn ʿUmar (radī Allāhu ʿanhu), “The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-salām) wore a gold ring and then the people followed him and wore gold rings too. Then the Prophet said, ‘I had this golden ring made for myself.’ He then threw it away and said, ‘I shall never put it on.’ Thereupon the people also threw their rings away.”

Love of Allāh and His Messenger

  Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymīyyah

When the aḥādīth about loving the Messenger of Allāh is looked at in a shallow way, it seems to imply that merely loving the Messenger will enter one into Paradise. This is not so, as there are actions attached to that love.

Prophet King or Slave Messenger

  al-Ḥāfiẓ ibn Rajab al-Ḥanbalī

By al-Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Rajab al-Ḥanbalī (d. AH 795). This is an excerpt from the last chapter of Ibn Rajab's famous book: al-Khushūʿ fī-al-Ṣʿalát. Here, he deals with the status of a slave-messenger which the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) actually selected for himself when given the choice. The chapter expounds upon the nobility of such a choice and the reasons behind it. Pay special attention to the advice of Ibrāhīm Ibn Adham at the end, although it is ḍāʿīf jiddan in its chain, it is tremendous in meaning
