In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
A piece of advice to my noble brothers and sisters - may Allāh have mercy upon us and you.
Let us benefit from the remaining days, minutes and seconds of this blessed month, as it may be our last.
Do not allow the comical twitter rants and barks of the foolish consume your time, especially in this month.
Do not lower your morals or standards in responding to these people, as this is what they desire in the first place.
"And turn away from the foolish." (Al-Aʿrāf: 199)
Alḥamdulillāh, the Salafīs are busy learning the affairs of their religion, while others bootlick for scraps at the table of the people of innovation - and lately the raḍīo stations of the NOI.
أعرض عن الجاهل السفيه *** فكل ما قاله فهو فيه
فلا يضر نهر الفرات يوما *** إذا خاض بعض الكلاب فيه
Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymīyyah (Majmūʿ al-Fatāwá́: 20/103) said,
"The people of innovation are more evil than the people of lascivious disobedience according to the Sunnah and Ijmāʿ (consensus). Verily, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) commanded with fighting the Khawārij while he prohibited fighting the tyrannical rulers. And he (peace and blessings be upon him) said about the one who was drinking alcohol, 'Do not curse him, as indeed, he loves Allāh and His Messenger," while he said about Dhu al-Khuwaysrah, "There will come from the loins of this person a people who will read the Qurʾān but it will not go past their throats. They will leave the religion (in one narration, 'they will leave Islām') as an arrow penetrates the prey...'"
Be patient O Sunni, do not disembark from the ark in order to argue and quarrel with them.
As Imām Aḥmad mentioned among the foundations of the people of the Sunnah,
"And the abandonment of quarrelling, argumentation and disputation in the religion."
May Allaah reward our noble brother, Abū 'Abdullāh Ḥasan for his timely advice. This advice also underscores the importance of leaving the affairs of tackling opponents of the da'wah to the Scholars and their students. Oftentimes, one may intend good but invoke harm due to the manner in which one expresses oneself. In this, the expression yourself generation, one can become consumed with the comment culture of today's social sphere. Today's technologies inspire instant commentary, so be careful and let those who are qualified and capable engage and respond to those who fight the people of Sunnah.
