Benefit: What Is Knowledge When It Is Merely Statements Without Actions?

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

وَالعِلْمُإِنْكَانَأَقْوَالًابِلَاعَمَلِ     فَلَيْتَ صَاحِبَهُفِيالجَهْلِمُنْغَمِرُ

“And when knowledge is just statements without action, 
Had only its companion been submerged in ignorance.”

You must perform deeds in accordance with knowledge. Knowledge without action is like trees without fruits. What are the benefits of trees that do not bear any fruit? Thus, Allāh has become angry with such people because they have knowledge, yet they do not act in accordance with it. So they justly deserve the anger of Allāh, the Glorified and Most High. And they deserve His disgust and hatred of them, even while they may believe themselves to be people of civilization, advancement, high status, and all the other claims that they make! The reality is that they are upon misguidance and have earned the anger of Allāh, the Exalted and Most High.1

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: Why All Deviant Groups Show Enmity Towards the Salafīs

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

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿUmar Bāzmūl (حفظه الله) was asked: “Why do all the [deviant] groups show enmity towards the Salafīs?”

The Shaykh (حفظه الله) stated: "This is because their views and opinions are contradictory to Salafīyyah. Salafīyyah not only clarifies their contradictions but also deems them to be innovators. This is what is meant [by the Prophet (ﷺ) when he said:] 'All of them [i.e the groups] are in the Fire, except one.' It was said: 'Which group, O Messenger of Allāh?' He (ﷺ) said: 'That which I and my Companions are upon.' He (ﷺ) also said in another narration: 'The Jamā‘ah.'"

Benefit: You Need to Be a Salafī if You Want to Memorise Ḥadīth!

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

'Uthmān ibn Khur-raazaad [d.282], one of Imām An-Nasaa'ee's shuyūkh, said:

"The companion of ḥadīth is in need of five things, and if he misses any one of them, then it is a deficiency.  He needs:

[1] A good intellect;

[2] (Uprightness in the) Dīn;

[3] Precision;

[4] Expertise in the field;

[5] While being known to fulfill trusts."

Ath-Thahabee mentioned this in Siyar (13/380), and then commented:
 
"I say: Trustworthiness is a part of the Dīn (ie. #5 is included in #2), and precision is included in expertise (ie. #3 is included in #4), so what the haafith (one who memorizes ḥadīth) needs is to be:

[1] A person of taqwá;

[2] Intelligent;

[3] Knowledgeable of 'Arabic grammar and language;

[4] Pure and shy;

[5] Salafī.

It will suffice him that he copies with his hand 200 volumes of books, owns 500 volumes of widely respected books, and does not tire from seeking knowledge until his death, all of this with a pure intention and humbleness. Otherwise, then he shouldn't waste his time (by trying to be a haafith)."

Benefit: Youth Who Claim to Love Salafiyyah Whilst Criticising Salafī Centres and Their Elders?

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

Questioner: How do we deal with youth who love Salafīyyah but speak ill of the Centre’s administration and those who established/organised it, also they do not accept advice from their elders. 

Answer: The Shaykh began by saying, “No, tell them do not do this, it is not from the akhlāq of the Salafīs, they have opposed the Salafīs (in this matter) the Salafī follows the manners of the Salaf. This is from the affairs of Ahl al-Bidʿah”…

”...Are they not the best people you can go to (in your land)?  Is there better than them which you can go to (in your land)? If there is then go...”

The Shaykh then went on to ask those who create fitnah and speak ill of the brothers at the markaz, do you want to take their places and make yourself look like you are more knowledgeable then them? If you have knowledge then proceed with it but if you do not have knowledge then learn!

Questioner: No Shaykh, these youth don't have knowledge, they are new to Salafīyyah! 

Shaykh Ḥasan continued:

“They don't know anything, if they knew and understood Salafīyyah, then they wouldn't speak like this. If there are scholars with you, then learn from the scholars and stick to them, may Allāh reward them.” 

The shaykh went on to emphasise learning manners and possessing knowledge so that the people respond to your daʿwah and say the Salafīs they are polite and knowledgeable people, then they will want to be like you.The Shaykh said let him talk to me on the phone (the ones who are causing trouble and speaking ill of the brothers at the centre) I will respond to them.

Bulūgh al-Marām: The Chapter of Purification

  Abū Muʿādh Taqwīm Aslam

From the seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification,delivered in Toronto, January 2017. Our elder and teacher, Abū Muʿādh Taqwīm Aslam, a graduate of the University of Madīnah in the Faculty of Ḥadīth Sciences, delivers a highly beneficial series of lectures going through the famous book, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification, by Ḥāfiẓ ibn Hajar al-Asqalānī (raḥimahullāh), drawing upon the explanation of Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzan (hafiẓahullah). Bulūgh al-Marām is comprised of chapters, each of which has several narrations which are related to that particular chapter and its rulings. The opening chapter is the Chapter of Purification, which comprises of issues related to wuḍūʿ, ghuṣl, tayammum and so on, which are briefly touched upon in these series of lectures.

Cooperating within a Community upon Birr and Taqwá

  ʿUmar Quinn

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.)

Decisive Word on Groups and Partisanship

  al-ʿAllāmah Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī

This is one of the greatest pieces of advice that the noble Scholar, the Imām of al-Jarḥ wa-al-Taʿdīl gave to brothers in England concerning the splits that occurred there. Listen to his advice concerning the clear Salafīyyīn, the clear Ḥizbiyyīn and the ones who are unsure and waver in the middle.

Determining the Right Way

   

When people enter into Islām, they sometimes become confused by the numerous Islamic parties, groups and sects, find which one is upon the clear white path which Prophet Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) left us upon.

Disinformation about Salafiyyah, Where Does It Come From?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
All praise is due to Allāh, and may exaltation and safety be granted to Muḥammad, his family, his companions, and those who aid them. To proceed:

Shaykh, Dr. Aḥmad Bazmul, may Allāh safeguard him, wrote:

Disinformation about Salafīyyah comes from one of the following reasons:

(1): From the enemies of the people of the truth, the people of falsehood, they spread disinformation about Salafīyyah due to their hatred for and war against the people of truth. They spread this disinformation even if it contains biased lies and rumours. 

They also make oppressive accusations and create false statements about the people of truth; they couple this with far-fetched interpretations and explanations of occurrences according to their desires. All with the purpose of deception and diversion from the truth. 

(2): [From people] holding things to be from the Salafī methodology that in actuality are not from it. The actions of individuals, and their mistakes, that the Salafī methodology do not condone, are not to be attributed to Salafīyyah. And whoever attributes the mistakes of indivduals to Salafīyyah is oppressive and a liar.

(3): From disbelievers, polytheists and atheists who try to paint a tarnished picture of Islām; however, [they should be fair and propagate that] Salafīyyah is what the Messenger of Allāh, may exalt his mention and grant him safety, came with.

So, it is clear from what has preceded that the source of this disinformation is the people of innovation, desires and misguidance, especially the modern-day Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimīn) and Jama’ah al-Tabligh al-Ahbāb.1
