In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
A Reminder to the brothers and sisters that it is not enough to solely rely on short YouTube clips, twitter or always expecting the students to visit the Maraakiz in person in order to clarify the manhaj issues, rather we have to allocate time for reading every day, especially on those days that the students are not delivering lessons. The students at SP have translated numerous articles to aid us acquaint ourselves with the sound manhaj issues and stances, and so that we are acquainted with the deceptions of ahlul bidah and the Hizbiyyoon. Therefore, do often visit websites such as www.salafipublications.com salafis.com manhaj.com takfirist.com and salafitalk.net
Do not just say I am a commoner, so I am not going to read a lot, rather the reason the students have translated the articles in the websites mentioned above is so that we are safeguarded from deviation by Allaah’s permission.
Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: It is an Obligation to Know the Path Of The believers and the path of the criminals. Allaah (The Most High) said:[وَكَذَٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الْآيَاتِ وَلِتَسْتَبِينَ سَبِيلُ الْمُجْرِمِينَ – ‘nd thus do We explain the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that the way of the Mujrimoon (criminals, polytheists, sinners), may become manifest.’ 6:55]
And Allaah (Glorified be He) said:
وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا
And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers’ way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen’ [4:115]
Indeed Allaah Glorified be He) has clarified the path of the believers in detail and that of the criminals in detail in His Book (i.e. the Qur’aan). He has (clarified) the end result of (believers) in detail and that of the (criminals) in detail. He has (clarified) the actions of the believers in detail and that of the (criminals) in detail. He has made known the allies of the (believers) in detail and that of the (criminals) in detail. He has (clarified in detail how He) forsake the (criminals) and His bestowal of success upon the (believers) in detail. He has (clarified) the reasons for the success of the (believers) in detail and the reasons for the failure of the (criminals) in detail. He (Glorified be He) has placed great importance on these two affairs in His Book, and has manifested, illustrated and clarified both of them with an utmost clarification, to the extent that both (affairs) become clearly visible in the same way as light and darkness are visible to the eyesight.
