Delving into the Sciences of the World to prove Islaam
Excerpts from Shaikh ‘Ubaid al-Jabiree (hafidhahullaah):
This was not known at the times of the Salaf, nor was it known by the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, or the imams of the Tabi’een (the Successors) or those who followed after them. This idea of researching the sciences behind the creation didn’t appear until about thirty years or so ago…
This idea of proving Islam through the Sciences is a bid’ah (an innovation). This type of study keeps us away from learning the true religion. My sincere advice to you my sister in Egypt, and other sisters of the Sunnah in Egypt, is that you shouldn’t listen to this and must not busy yourselves with this knowledge but rather you should focus on the knowledge of the Sharee’ah which is the knowledge of the Qur`aan and the Sunnah upon the understanding of the Salaf.
The Sunnah is a way of happiness and tranquillity in this life because the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: Whoever Allaah wants good for, He gives him understanding of the religion. So from this, we understand that whoever Allaah does not want good for, He does not give him understanding of the religion.
