Benefit: Crucified for the Sunnah: The Daʿwah Needs Real Men

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

The Salaf were men; they were lions of the sunnah. What we face now is nothing compared to what the salaf faced in sticking to their ʿaqīdah and their dīn. This daʿwah is for real men. We don’t compromise our dīn; we stay firm regardless of any fitan. Don’t throw away your akhirah; don’t throw it away so easily. Listen to the inspiring story of the great Imām and shahid, Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad ibn Sahl al-Ramli, known as Ibn al-Nabulsi by Abū Idrīs.

  You Cannot Count the Blessings of Allāh

During the Seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification in January 2017, our noble and respected elder, Abū Muʿādh Taqwīm Aslam, delivered a powerful khuṭbah concerning the blessings of Allāh, all of which we could never even begin to enumerate, and the greatest of which is guidance to Islam and the Sunnah. In this khuṭbah, he also highlighted the grave importance of seeking and equipping oneself with knowledge in order to worship Allāh as He has commanded us, so we may protect ourselves and our families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones.

Benefit: Refuting the Innovators and Their Corrupt Methodologies Is an Established Practice of the Salaf

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

Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī(رحمه الله) stated: “Refuting [the innovators and their corrput methodologies] is an established practice of the Salaf. Only a person of desires or someone who is weak in knowledge fears it.”

Benefit: The Khawārij Will Arise from ʿIrāq

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

عن يُسَيْرُ بْنُ عَمْرٍو، قَالَ قُلْتُ لِسَهْلِ بْنِ حُنَيْفٍ هَلْ سَمِعْتَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ فِي الْخَوَارِجِ شَيْئًا قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ ـ وَأَهْوَى بِيَدِهِ قِبَلَ الْعِرَاقِ ـ " يَخْرُجُ مِنْهُ قَوْمٌ يَقْرَءُونَ الْقُرْآنَ لاَ يُجَاوِزُ تَرَاقِيَهُمْ، يَمْرُقُونَ مِنَ الإِسْلاَمِ مُرُوقَ السَّهْمِ مِنَ الرَّمِيَّةِ ".

On the authority of Yusayr ibn ʿAmr who said: I asked Sahl ibn Ḥanīf: Have you heard the prophet (ṣalla Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) say anything about the Khawārij (renegade terrorists)? He said: I heard him say—while pointing towards the direction of ʿIrāq—there will arise from it a people who recite the Qurʾān whilst it does not go beyond their throats. They will exit the religion like the arrow exits the game’s body.

Benefit: The Modesty of ʿĀʾishah

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

From the most admirable examples of modesty is that of the Mother of the Believers ʿĀʾishah (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhā).

There comes in the Musnad (of Imām Aḥmad) where she says:

I use to enter my house—where the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) and my father were buried—and remove my garments saying (to myself) it was just my husband and my father. When ʿUmar was buried along with them, I swear by Allāh, I have not entered except that my garments were wrapped around me due to my shyness from ʿUmar.

Benefit: The Necessity of Following the Salaf al-Ṣāliḥ

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

Stated ʿUmar ibn ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz (d.101H), “Those who have preceded, they stopped upon knowledge, they restrained due to penetrating insight, and they were the keenest in uncovering the affairs. Furthermore, if the guidance is what you are upon, then they have preceded you in it. And if you say that affairs were invented after them, then nothing was invented, except by one who follows other than their path and prefers himself over them. Indeed, they spoke about it with that which suffices, and they described from it that which satisfies. So whatever is below them is deficient and whatever is above them is confinement. Indeed, there were people below them, so they worked in vain. And others turned away from them, so they fell into extremism. Indeed, they were in between that, upon straight guidance.” Ḥasan: Related by Ibn Waddāh in al-Bida’ wan-Nahee ’anhaa (no. 77).

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) said, “The stars are the protectors of the heavens, so when the stars go, whatever has been promised to the heavens will occur.  And I am the protector for my Companions, so when I go, whatever has been promised to my Companions will occur.  And my Companions are the protectors of my Ummah, so when my Companions go, whatever has been promised to my Ummah will occur.”  It is related by Muslim (4/1961) from the ḥadīth of Saʿīd Ibn Abī Burdah, from his father.

Benefit: The Pathway to Salvation

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

 Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī (حفظه الله) stated: “Anyone who digresses from the understanding of the Salaf will become misguided and will misguide others.”

Benefit: The People of Innovation Call to Evil

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

 Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī (رحمه الله) said: “Verily, the Salaf al-Sāliḥ would reject the testimony of the people of innovation, and they would warn others form sitting with them and from taking knowledge from them because they call to evil.”

Benefit: The Story of the Man Who Attended the Janāzah of Bishr al-Marīsī

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

  When Bishr ibn Ghiyāth al-Marīsī died, not a single person from the people of knowledge and Sunnah attended his janāzah except for ʿUbayd al-Shūnīzī. So when he returned from the janāzah of al-Marīsī, Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jamāʿah confronted him.

They said: O enemy of Allāh! You claim to be upon the Sunnah and the Jamāʾah but you attend the janāzah of al-Marīsī?

He replied: Allow me respite until I inform you! I have never attended a janāzah in which I hoped for [so much] reward as this janāzah. When he [Bishr al-Marīsī] was placed in the designated place for the janāzah, I stood up in the row and said:

O Allāh! This slave of yours used to disbelieve in [the believers] seeing you in the hereafter. O Allāh, blind him from seeing your face on the day the believers will see you.
O Allāh! This slave of yours used to disbelieve in the punishments of the grave. O Allāh, punish him this day—in his grave—with a punishment you have never punished anyone from the creation with.
O Allāh! This slave of yours used to disbelieve in the mīzān [scale]. O Allāh, lighten his scale on the Day of Judgement.
O Allāh! This slave of yours used to disbelieve in al-shafāʿah [intercession], O Allāh, let not anyone from your creation intercede for him on the Day of Judgement.

So upon hearing this, they [Ahl al-Sunnah] remained silent [i.e. they let him be] and laughed.
