“I AM NOTHING, & NOTHING (GOOD) HAS COME FROM ME -Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahimahullah

Khadijah Bint Ahmed Umm Zayd As Somaaliyyah

اللهم يا معلم آدم وإبراهيم علمني ويا مفهم سليمان فهمني

Bismillaah…

Reminder to myself first!

The month of Ramadan is coming to an end and we must ask ourselves, what have we gained out of this Beloved month? The month were everyone was trying to rush to deeds as fast as they could. Some would stand up in prayer through the nights. Some would give out Sadaqaah. Some would finish the Qur’an 10+ during this month. Most were dealing with hunger and thirst through the long hours of the day and Alhamdulillaah it was all worth it. But does it stop here? Does it stop when Ramadan goes? La!!! Ramadan is a month where we revive our eemaan and build a schedule in were we worship Allaah through the days and nights, so that when Ramadan goes, we continue these deeds! The qiyam, sawm and so on.

Also..
Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali said:

"Slaves of Allaah! The month of Ramadan is determined to leave and there are but a few days left of it. Those of you who have done good should complete it (in goodness) and whoever has neglected it then let him end it in goodness since actions are according to their ending. So enjoy the few nights and days that are left and bid it farewell by performing good deeds which can be witness for you with Al-Malik Al-‘Alam, and see it off by parting with the most pure greeting and salam." [Lata’ef Al-Ma’arif, P. 386]

So lets all try to end of Ramadan with a good ending, and pure intentions bithnillaah. May Allaah accept this Ramadan from us, may Allaah forgive us and may Allaah allows us to enter His Jannah tul-Firdows!! Allaahumma ameen.

Baraka’Allaahu Feekunnaa. Asalamu’ alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu!

This powerful Khutbah is a must listen for the youth, mothers and fathers. Our brother Abu Khadeejah delivered this sermon today (Friday 18th July 2014) at Masjid as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah in Aston, Birmingham. He focused on the affair of benefitting ourselves before Ramadaan comes to an end and get the best out of our worship, and to understand your duty before Allaah, and the responsibility placed upon each and every one of us on a daily basis. Points of discussion: Sins, mercy, forgiveness, Laylatul-Qadr, Imaan, tawheed, youth, parents, calamities.

Reading The Quran

Advice for the one who has no blessings in his time

One of the Salaf said:

‘Every time I increased in reading a portion of the Qur’aan, blessings increased in my time, and I continued increasing in reading until I reached reading ten Ajzaa (parts) of my portion of reading.’

Ibraheem bin AbdulWahid al-Maqdasi advised ad-Deeya al-Maqdasi when he wanted to travel for knowledge:

‘Read the Qur’aan a lot and do not leave it; indeed it will make it easy for you for that what you seek (i.e. knowledge) due to the amount that you read.’

ad-Deeya said: ‘I saw that this was true and I experienced it a lot, so I used to if I had read a lot find it easy to hear Hadeeth being narrated a lot and writing them down, and if I did not read the Qur’aan, it would not be easy for me.’

[From: ‘Thayl Tabaqaat al-Hanabila by Ibn Rajab 3/205]

Reflecting upon the Qur’aan

Shamsuddeen Muhammad bin Abee Bakr Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawzeeyah (d.751 A.H.) -Rahimullaah-said:

‘If the people knew what was in reciting the Qur’aan with reflecting upon it they would definitely busy themselves with it, rather than busying themselves with everything other than the Qur’aan.

Reading the Ayaat while pondering over them is better than finishing reading it without reflecting upon it and understanding it. This is more beneficial for the heart, and greater in extent to achieving Eemaan and to taste the sweetness of the Qur’aan… . ‘

[Miftah Dar-As-Sa’ada 1/553]

The Necessity of Learning the Qur’aan

Shaykh Muhammad bin Salih al-Uthaymeen (d.1421 A.H.) said:

‘It is necessary for a person to learn the meanings of the Qur’aan just like he learns the wording of the Qur’aan. It is very regretful that the reality of many of the Muslims is that they are not upon this methodology. Meaning that they read the Qur’aan for worship with just its wordings without understanding its meaning or without implementing its rulings.

This is a great deficiency, and its effects are apparent upon the Muslims, whereby they have significantly opposed what the Salaf as-Salih (righteous predecessors) were upon from implementing the Qur’aan, in wording, meaning and action. Therefore, the Muslims have missed out on a lot of goodness.’

[From: ‘Ahkam min al-Quraan al-Kareem’ 1/306]

Naseeha

May Allaah, with His Mercy, protect both me and you from the Hellfire.

I advise both you and myself to fear Allaah.

And I warn you not to turn to ignorance after you have learned, not to turn to destruction after you have seen and recognized the truth, and not to leave the (Straight) Path after it has been made clear to you.

Do not become deceived by worldly people, and do not become unduly impressed by the way they strive for and greedily gather worldly things, for the terror (that will envelop them on the Day of Resurrection) is indeed SEVERE.

The danger (of the Day of Resurrection) is grave indeed, but what is more, is that it is near at hand.

So occupy yourself exclusively with the Hereafter, and empty your heart of all other thoughts; once you have done that, work hard! Do not waste time! And flee from the world and its temptations! Travel to the Hereafter (with your worship) before you are taken there… I have indeed given you the same advice that I gave myself.

And understand that success comes from Allaah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala). The key to gaining His help is supplication, prayer, feeling remorse for past negligence, and complete submission to Him.

Your days and nights are numbered, so use the time you have left wisely, and do not be negligent in fulfilling the rights of your Lord.

I ask Allaah, Who has blessed us to know Him, not to entrust us and you to our ownselves; and I ask Allaah to be our Guardian and Helper, just as He is the Guardian and Helper of His beloved, righteous slaves.

Beware of doing that which will spoil your deeds, and know that it is showing off that spoils a person’s deeds; and if it is not showing off, then it is conceitedness – for you to imagine that you are better than one of your Muslim brothers, when in reality he performs more good deeds than you do; or perhaps he performs his deeds with a purer intention than you do.

And even if you are not conceited, beware of developing a love for praise.

Be ever so careful not to come to love other people’s praise of your good deeds, or the respect they feel for you and bestow upon you because of your good deeds.

And beware of desiring that others should help you in your personal affairs just because they have become impressed with your good deeds.

You surely claim (as does everyone else), after all, that you are doing good deeds only for the sake of Allaah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala); well, then turn that claim into a reality.

If you want to be less desirous of this world – its things, wealth, and pleasures – and more desirous of the Hereafter — Paradise and its bliss – then remember death frequently.

And know that you have long term hopes for this world – which one should not have — if you fear Allaah only a little or if you recklessly perpetrate sins.

And one will be sufficiently regretful and wretched on the Day of Resurrection if he has knowledge but does not apply it.

The crescent for the new moon of Ramadhaan 2014 has not been sighted and this has been verified by Saudi officials in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
This means that the month of Ramadhaan will begin this Sunday 29th of June for the year 2014. Thus Taraweeh will start this Saturday night 28th of June and fasting will begin Sunday 29th of June.

May Allaah grant us Tawfeeq to make this Ramadhaan count and help us make this Ramadhaan different. May Allaah accept from us and you, all our good deeds, ameen.

Abu Bakr bin Maymun came and knocked on the door of al-Humaydi, and assumed that he was given permission to enter. So, he entered, finding al-Humaydi with his thigh exposed. al-Humaydi began to cry, saying: “By Allah, you have just laid your eyes on something that nobody has seen since I have reached adulthood!”” [Siyaar A’laam an-Nubalaa’, 19/122]
