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.

A Noble Advice Concerning Clinging to the Manhaj of the Salaf

  al-ʿAllāmah Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī

A short admonition on the importance of clinging to the correct manhaj. An exemplification of why this noble Salafī manhaj is the only way which will bring rectification and success to the ummah. The questions which follow underline the evils of Abū al-Fitan (al-Maʿribī) and his similitude to the methodology of Sayyid Qutb, the destruction of the manhaj of al-muwāzināt (counterbalancing the good and bad points of a person) and the mistake of carrying the mujmal upon the mufaṣṣal (the general over the specific), destruction upon the manhaj of salaf.

A Statement about Salafi Websites, Digital Content and Re-Orienting Access Points

Over the past five to eight years, the dynamics of the Internet have changed; consumers have become producers (“prosumers”), the audience has become the host in the emerging Web 2.0 era. The Internet now invites interactivity at every juncture, encouraging its users to type, record and publish. With the advent of this technology, and in particular social media, numerous opportunists appeared attempting to create their own social-network infused online communities, utilising today’s technologies like a ‘digital minbar’.

Audio: Cooperating within a Community upon Birr and Taqwá

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

  Cooperating within a Community upon Birr and Taqwá

The Muslim is in a time of strangeness and in a land (the West) where he is a stranger so he is in dire need of support and assistance from Allāh, Subḥānahu wa taʿālá, most importantly, and from his brothers and sisters. So it is of utmost importance to cooperate with each other upon birr and taqwá because we are in dire need of help and support from each other to maintain our creed, our religion and our morality. ʿUmar Quinn gives general advice on cooperating upon what is pleasing to Allāh and building and dealing with all the affairs of a community in a manner most pleasing to Him. (From a telelink at Masjid al-Furqān (TROID) 08/015.)

  Guard Yourselves From the Two Extremes

During the seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification in January 2017, our noble and respected Shaykh, Shaykh Ḥasan ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Banná delivered a very important lecture concerning the importance of clinging to the Qurʾān and the Sunnah and the methodology of the Salaf, and the importance of staying away from the two extremes of exaggeration and falling short.

Audio: The Danger of Those Who Sport the Garments of Ahl Sunnah Only to Lead the Salafīs Astray

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

  The Danger of Those Who Sport the Garments of Ahl Sunnah Only to Lead the Salafīs Astray

A lecture from the 2008 Toronto leg of the Holding on to Islām seminar. The one who destroys your house from the inside is worse and more dangerous than the one who tries to destroy your house from the outside; the same is true for the people of bidʿah who claim to be Salafī, who quote from some of the Salafī scholars etc., yet their aim is to destroy our ʿaqīḍah and our manhaj, leading us into the Fire. How should the Salafīs deal with these people? This lecture incorporates the works of Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madhkhālī, and other Salafī scholars of today. Ustadh Abū Khadījah also takes examples from the lives of the Ṣaḥābah and the scholars of the past.

Benefit: “An Attribute I Have Known From Akhzam” The Inheritance of the Ḥizbīs

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

The phrase "An attribute I have known from Akhzam" is an old Arab proverb which is based on a true story of a man named Akhzam who was disobedient and rebellious to his father. Later when Akhzam passed away, his children increased in harshness and disobedience to their grandfather, surpassing Akhzam himself. Until one day they beat their own grandfather, the grandfather then replied by saying:

إنَّ بَنِيَّ ضَرَّجُونِي بالدَّمِ *** شِنْشِنَةٌ أَعْرِفُهَا مِن أَخْزَمِ
Indeed My Children Have Imbrued me (with my own) Blood. An Attribute I Have Known From Akhzam.

Meaning, that which they were doing was not something new for the grandfather, rather it was an attribute inherited from the deceased Akhzam.

The Scholars use this famous proverb to illustrate to us that the Ḥizbīs have not brought something new with them, rather speaking ill of the Salafis is something the people of innovation and Ḥizbiyyah of old would practice.

Abū Ḥātim al-Rāzī mentioned: A sign of the people of innovation is their battling against the people of narrations (Ahl al-Athar). [ʿAqīdah al-Salaf wa Asḥāb al-Ḥadīth, pg.304]

Benefit: A Crushing Blow to the Innovators

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

Shaykh ʿAbdullāh al-Bukhārī (حفظه الله) stated when describing the following texts:

[1] The statement of Allāh:

"وَأَنَّ هَـٰذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيمًا فَاتَّبِعُوهُ ۖ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَن سَبِيلِهِ" 
“And verily, this is my straight path, so follow it, and follow not other paths, for they will separate you from His path.”
[Sūrah al-An‘ām, 6:153]

[2] Jābir ibn ʿAbdillāh (رضي الله عنه) said: “We were with the Prophet (ﷺ), and he (ﷺ) drew a line [in the sand]. He (ﷺ) then drew two lines to its right and two to its left. He (ﷺ) then placed his hand on the middle line and said: ‘This is the path of Allāh.’ He (ﷺ) then recited the verse: ‘And verily, this is my straight path, so follow it, and follow not other paths, for they will separate you from His path.’” [Reported by Ibn Mājah and others, and Shaykh al-Albānī authenticated it.]

This verse is, as al-‘Allāmah al-Qurṭubī [d. AH 671] said, a great verse. It is a crushing blow to the innovators, the people of misguidance and the ḥizbīs who have innovated partisanship and differing and produced misguidance. It is a crushing blow for all of them because they deviated from the path of Allāh and followed those Shayāṭīn who call to those groups [of misguidance] and [deviated] paths.

Translator’s note:

The shaykh (حفظه الله) then went on to describe the Ḥadīth in a similar manner.

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: Ahl al-Sunnah Are Not Harmed by Those Who Oppose Them!!

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

An important benefit from the khuṭbah at TROID (Masjid al-Furqān) entitled: The Evils of Plotting and Disunity. The noble speaker, Abū Khadījah states:

“They were once with us, in this masjid (TROID), next to us, praying with us, that (you would feel) we are united, (upon) the haqq, we will spread the daʿwah together, you pray with him, year in, year out, then a time comes, that that same individual disappears from your presence, you don’t see him again, then you realise that he is plotting against the same people that he was praying next to, foot to foot, heel to heel, fighting against them, warning against them, gathering the people against them…to harm who? The people you’ve been commanded to unite with!!! but الحمد لله ‘they are not harmed by those who oppose them or differ with them or abandon them!!’”

“We should know what unites us and what divides us…don’t allow individuals to come into your ranks that they were once with you then they divided from you and then they try to recruit you to divide the ranks of the people of Sunnah…do not allow that!”

“The haqq is one, the people (of haqq) are united, they are the ones who connect you to the scholars…they love the Sunnah…they will not compromise the Sunnah…do not sell your religion (short).”

“Do not open your hearts to argumentation, it leads a person to change his religion.”

“Do not deceive yourselves for you will only harm yourself.”

“May Allāh preserve and protect our communities, from the people of deviation, from the people of bidʿah, from those individuals who come upon our ranks to cause confusion and splitting amongst our ranks, so much so that brothers who used to love each other for the sake of Allāh now hate each other, do not be swayed, do not be like feathers in the breeze, know the truth, stick to the truth and do not compromise the truth!!!
