Benefit: Concealing the Sins of a Muslim

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

If a person sees a defect from his brother (i.e. a sin), he should not expose him and spread news of it amongst the people. Rather, he should conceal [his brother’s sins]; advise him; direct him towards good; call him to repent to Allāh, the Most High; and not expose him to the people. The one who conceals [the sins of] his brother, Allāh will conceal him [i.e. his sins] both in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. This is because the recompense of one is in accordance to that which he has done.

As for those who have no shame and make their sins apparent to the people, they have exposed themselves; therefore, they are not given concealment [with regards to their sins]. They are like the one who drinks alcohol amongst the people in the marketplaces and gatherings, such a person has exposed himself. We ask Allāh for good health.

Benefit: Connection between Astrology and Fortune-Telling

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

Question: What is the connection between astrology and fortune-telling? Which one of them is worse?

Answer:
The connection between astrology and fortune-telling is that both of them are based upon falsehood, deception, unlawfully taking the wealth of the people (theft), causing depression and sorrow and the likes of this. As for their dangers upon the Muslims, then you would have to look at how widespread it is amongst the people. It could be that in some countries there are no general signs of astrology, and the people do not rely on or believe in it but fortune-telling is widespread amongst them, which makes it (fortune-telling) worse (than astrology), and vice versa. But in general, fortune-telling is worse.

Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson discusses the Prophet’s (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) good character when dealing with individuals who approached him regretful and ashamed of their sins, not scolding them nor rebuking them for things that they were already repenting for.

Benefit: Instagram and the Vanity of Social Networks

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

 A brief reminder from Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī concerning Instagram and the love of displaying oneself on social networks, sinning and showing off one's sins. The noble speaker reminds the listeners to remember death: the destroyer of desires. How lowly is it to not only sin but to show off one's sins, with no shame, no fear, no realisation of the return to Allāh.

Benefit: Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Ibn Bāz Concerning Major Sinners and Their Places in the Hereafter

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

 Ustādh Mūsá Richardson translates a fatwá on the issue of major sinners and their places in the hereafter as explained by our Shaykh, ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (raḥimahullāh). In his fatwá collection vol 6. p 391, he was asked the following:

[Q]: Allāh says in the Qurʾān that He does not forgive that partners are associated in worship alongside him, but he forgives anything less than that (Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:116). He also says He is the most forgiving for whomever repents and believes and does righteous deed (Sūrah Ṭā Hā, 20:82). Is there a clash between these two verses? And what is the meaning of his statement "everything less than shirk (polytheism) for whomever he pleases" in the first ayāh.

Benefit: Sins are of Two Types

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

Dr. Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) stated:

Sins are of two types:

  1. major
  2. minor

Allāh taʿalá says:

 (( إن تجتَنِبوا كبائر ما تُنهَون عنه ، نكفِّر عنكم سيِّئاتِكُم ، ونُدخِلكُم مُدخَلًا كريمًا ))
«If you avoid the major sins from which you have been forbidden, We shall pardon your minor sins and admit you to a most noble entrance
[Sūrah al-Nisāʾ, 4:31]

Benefit: The Instigator of Bloodshed Will Attain His Portion of the Sin

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

Beware the Perils of the Internet

  Abū ʿAbdullāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī

A discussion on some of the harms of internet technologies, specifically social media in its various forms. The misuse of these technologies for evil is commonplace today. Many Muslims let their guards down online and do not give thought to how they interact with the internet and what this is doing to their time. The issue of seeking knowledge versus click-happy sociability and the overall absorption of time into a vortex of techo time-wasting is explored also.

From the Rights of Tawḥīd

  Imām Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

The point of the discussion and the secret behind it is that the servant does not see his Lord except as One continuously bestowing goodness and he does not see himself except as one who is sinful, excessive or deficient.

Safeguarding the Tongue

   

A reminder filled with narrations from the Prophet and his Companions concerning the grave sins of the tongue.

Supporting a Masjid: A Communal Obligation

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
An excerpt from the a khuṭbah by Abū al-ʿAbbās Mūsá Richardson encouraging the Muslims to be vigilant in supporting their local masjid, being active in helping, using one's wealth and supporting the spread of Islām. He also cautions the listeners against speaking out against the leadership of the masājid, their financial affairs and questioning the worthiness of their positions. The evil and fitnah of these actions and how the Shayṭān intensifies in his efforts to separate the people as the community grows in size. The speaker cautions the listeners to record the statements of those who whisper doubts in to the community, to hold them accountable, to verify their claims and to admonish them for their rumour-mongering. An important reminder for every community - to busy ourselves with good and to leave of useless banter and ill-speech.
