‘Indeed Allaah is Pure and He does not accept, except that which is pure’

The Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

‘Indeed Allaah is Pure and He does not accept, except that which is pure’

Al-Allaamah Saaleh Al Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

In this hadith he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) described Allaah (جل وعلا) (saying) that Allaah (سبحانه) is Pure.  He (سبحانه) is Pure, meaning: He is free from all imperfections and deficiencies.  He is Pure in His Essence, in His Names and Attributes and with regards to His Commandments and Prohibitions.  He (سبحانه) is Pure in every aspect and imperfection cannot reach Him; and for that reason He does not accept actions, statements and intentions except that which is pure.  He does not accept filthy statements, actions and intentions.  He does not accept except the pure, as He (The Most High) said: [إِلَيۡهِ يَصۡعَدُ ٱلۡكَلِمُ ٱلطَّيِّبُ وَٱلۡعَمَلُ ٱلصَّـٰلِحُ يَرۡفَعُهُۚ  ] ‘To Him ascend (all) the goodly words’[Surah Faatir Ayah: 10]

He (سبحانه) does not accept, except good speech and good actions…up until the Sheikh said: As for filthy speech, then indeed Allaah rejects and hates it; such as lies, backbiting, tale carrying, abuse, false speech and false testimony and all filthy statements; (such as) shirk and kufr.  All of this is filthy speech and does not ascend to Allaah, and is not accepted.

Al-Allaamah Muqbil bin Haadi (rahimahullaah) on the Journalists

Al-Allaamah Muqbil bin Haadi (rahimahullaah) said:

In the majority of cases the journalists are capricious; so they praise the rulers in order to be given wealth. And it may be that they accept the realities, whilst launching attacks against the people of knowledge (i.e. the scholars). Therefore, a person should be principled and truthful, and he should not care who opposes him. But if he is capricious, then the people will not be at ease with his newspaper because it becomes that of lies and (also) its articles.

The Mufti of KSA [Al-Allaamah Abdul-Azeez Aala Shaikh] Speaks Against Boko Haram [The Khawaarij of Nigeria]

In The name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Al-Allaamah Abdul Azeez Aala Shaikh (may Allaah preserve him) says:

*Boka Haraam is a misguided group and are from the khawaarij.

*Their actions are evil and harmful for Islam and the Muslims.

*Their actions are destructive.

*Abducting girls is from the actions of a misguided group.

*If Boka Haraam are claiming a call to jihad, then it is nothing but ignorance and enmity against Islaam and the Muslims.

*Boka Haraam are not upon correctness and guidance because Islaam opposes abduction/kidnapping, unlawful killing and transgression.

*Marrying off kidnapped/abducted females is haraam and it is not permissible to give them in marriage.

The Evil Consequences Of Miserliness

 
Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَمِنۡہُم مَّنۡ عَـٰهَدَ ٱللَّهَ لَٮِٕنۡ ءَاتَٮٰنَا مِن فَضۡلِهِۦ لَنَصَّدَّقَنَّ وَلَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحِينَ

فَلَمَّآ ءَاتَٮٰهُم مِّن فَضۡلِهِۦ بَخِلُواْ بِهِۦ وَتَوَلَّواْ وَّهُم مُّعۡرِضُونَ

فَأَعۡقَبَہُمۡ نِفَاقً۬ا فِى قُلُوبِہِمۡ إِلَىٰ يَوۡمِ يَلۡقَوۡنَهُ ۥ بِمَآ أَخۡلَفُواْ ٱللَّهَ مَا وَعَدُوهُ وَبِمَا ڪَانُواْ يَكۡذِبُونَ

 ”And of them are some who made a covenant with Allah (saying): “If He bestowed on us of His Bounty, we will verily, give Sadaqah (Zakat and voluntary charity in Allah’s Cause) and will be certainly among those who are righteous.  Then when He gave them of His Bounty, they became niggardly [refused to pay the Sadaqah (Zakat or voluntary charity)], and turned away, averse. So He punished them by putting hypocrisy into their hearts till the Day whereon they shall meet Him, because they broke that (covenant with Allah) which they had promised Him and because they used to tell lies. [9:75-77]

Imaam Sadi (rahimahullaah) mentioned in his Tafseer that Allaah punished the Munaafiqoon by putting hypocrisy in their hearts; because they made a covenant with Allaah that they will spend in charity if given of Allaah’s Blessings, but they became n*gg*rdly and turned away after they were given of His Blessings.

Therefore, the believer is warned against this evil characteristic of the Munaafiqoon, such that he makes a covenant with his Lord to do such and such, but when he reaches his goal he fails to fulfil that; for indeed, it may be that Allaah will punished him by putting hypocrisy in his heart just as he punished the Munaafiqoon.

Those Who Nickname the Salafis with the terms Madkhaliyyah, Jaamiyyah—Shaikh Rabee Responds

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Question:

Our Shaikh-may Allaah protect you.

What do you say about the one who hurl accusations at the Salafiyyoon– in Germany and other countries—with the (term) Madkhaliyyah or Madaakhilah! And that they (i.e. the salafiyoon) divide the Ummah! And that they make a (false) claim to Salafiyyah! And that they do not know except speaking ill of (people), refutation and defamation? May Allaah bless you and may Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) cure you.

Answer:

الحمد لله، والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وعلى آله وصحبه ومن اتبع هداه

To proceed:

Indeed, Ahlus Sunnah Wal-Jamaa-ah are solely followers of Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). They follow the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) in creed, methodology, politics, and manners and in all affairs of life.  They are followers in that (i.e. in these affairs) and they do not innovate.  They are upon this ardent standpoint and adhering to the Messenger’s warning against ahlul bidah, and the warning of the Salaf against ahlul bidah.  They are adherents of this methodology.   The one who opposes them and nicknames them with the terms Jaamiyyah or Madkhaliyyah, then indeed he is misguided; rather he is one who wages war against the Sunnah and the Salafi Methodology.

Therefore, they should fear Allaah in their souls and abandon nicknaming with cruel nicknames. They should fear Allaah and speak a word of truth. [Allaah (The Most High)] said: [يا أيها الذين ءامنوا اتقوا الله وقولوا قولا سديدا يُصلح لكم أعمالكم ويغفر لكم ذنوبكم ] ”O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins.” [33:70-71]

Do you take revenge against these Salafiyyoon and nickname them with these nicknames only because they hold onto the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)? What is the bidah that the salafiyyoon have in order for them (i.e. the false accusers) to say Madkhaliyyah, Jaamiyyah? What is the bidah the Salafiyyoon have?

We know that Jamaa-ah At-Taleegh, Jamaa-ah Al-Ikhwaan (Muslimeen) and the Qutubiyyeen have bidah and affairs of misguidance in the fundamentals and subsidiary issues of the religion! So we advise them and clarify the truth to them—may Allaah bless you—so the one whom  Allaah(Glorified and Exalted Be He) grants Tawfeeq, he returns to correctness and traverses the path of the pious predecessors. And the one whom Allaah (The Blessed and Exalted) forsakes and does not wish good for him, then indeed he does not increase except in transgression and oppression.

وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم

Closeness to the wife/wives

Narrated Aisha (radiyallaahu-anhaa): ”The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) used to lean on my lap during my menses and then would recite the Qur’aan.” [1]

Imaam Abdul-Azeez Bin Baaz (rahimahullaah) said:

”In this is an (indication) of his (i.e. the Prophet) humbleness and friendly (attitude) towards his family.” [2]
