Ruling on Chain Messages – Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzan was asked about chain messages which are sent telling people to send peace and blessings upon the Prophet  -May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him- and forwarding it to (for eg) 10 people so as to attain good deeds by way of it.

The Shaykh -may Allah preserve him- answered: This is an innovation, this is an innovation; the origin of sending peace and blessings upon the prophet is legistlated and is a good thing, however specifying with sending it to “x” amount of people is an innovation with no evidence supporting it.

From the lecture: من أسباب محبة الله

Partly paraphrased

We Unite the Muslims first and then we call them to Tawheed? Shaykh Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Regarding the statement:

We Unite the Muslims first and then we call them to Tawheed?

Shaykh Fawzaan (may Allah preserve him) said:

It is not possible for you to unite the Muslims whilst they have different creeds, its not possible. This is a contradiction!

They will not unite except upon Tawheed and upon the Correct Aqeedah, so if you want to unite the Muslims, you unite them upon the correct creed, by way of which, Allah -subhaanahu wa t’aala- will join their hearts together.
