Advice to the Youth concerning Palestine – Shaikh ‘Ubaid Al-Jaabiree

This was a three part question asked over Paltalk. The first two questions were about du’aa and and so they were left out and consequently the tape recording was edited and abridged to pertinent part only. The recording is not clear in some parts, which we have highlighted in the text with […].

Question: The youth would like your advice O Shaikh, on what our obligation is with regard to what is occurring currently in Palestine. May Allaah reward you! As-Salaam ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh.

Answer: Wa ‘Alaika as-Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh…

As for your third question, which is on directing the youth, or advising the youth concerning what is occurring in Palestine, then (we say that) Allaah knows that our hearts have become broken (over the current situation). However, we do not let our passions overtake us, rather we let the Sunnah direct us. And the Sunnah in this regard is to return the matter to those people who are capable of producing solutions and conclusions (Ahlul Halli wal-‘Aqd) – the leaders and rulers.

So it is not permissible for every Tom, Dick and Harry to speak his mind, because this falls into provoking and instigating turmoil.

Firstly, I will mention the legislated principle that has been stated in the Noble Qur’aan, which is: “And when a matter concerning (public) fear or security comes to them, they spread it (out to the people). But if they had only returned it back to the Messenger and to those in authority among them, those who derive (the correct understanding) among them would have made (the matter) known (upon its correct understanding).” [Surah An-Nisaa: 83]

Secondly, I warn the Muslim youth, specifically, and all the Muslims, generally, to not oppose this principle by instead accepting the call of these foolish speakers, who send messages asking for certain things which they have no right over, such as boycotting the purchase of American products, for example. Or they send letters over the commercial lines or by fax saying: “Give your support, Give your support!”…

So these people are assuming a responsibility that they have no authority over. And furthermore, we, all praise be to Allaah, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and in the Gulf states and other neighboring states, as well as the Arab lands, are being ruled by Muslims from among us. We do not claim that they are infallible or that they are free from error. However, they are Muslims and there are scholars around them. And they have advisors from the scholars, judges, ministers, and those who have experience in law and politics.

So it is not permissible to follow other than them, the command is solely for them…

And I advise you to seek refuge in Allaah, by making supplication (for them) – that He alleviate their suffering and relieve them from their distress. And ask that He solve their dilemma and grant them victory over the Jews in the state of the Tribe of Isra’eel, as well as those who join sides with them, from the disbelievers and polytheists. This is the advice in brief and Allaah knows best.

A mature child sleeping on the same bed with his mother and sister – Permanent Committee

Q: Is it permissible for a boy to sleep with his mother and his sister if he has reached the age of puberty?

A: It is not permissible for boys who have reached the age of puberty or ten years of age to sleep with their mothers or their sisters in the same bed, out of protection of honors, to keep away from Fitnah (temptation) and block the means leading to sin. The Prophet (peace be upon him) asked us to separate the beds of boys and girls when they reach the age of ten in his saying:

Command your children to offer Salah (Prayer) when they become seven years old; beat them for (neglecting) it when they become ten years old; and arrange their beds (to sleep) separately.

[1] Abu Dawud, Sunan, Book on Salah, no. 495; and Ahmad, Musnad, vol. 2, p. 187.

As for those who have not reached the age of puberty yet, they are asked to take permission when entering the rooms three times when people put on light clothes and `Awrah (parts of the body that must be covered in public) most probably could be revealed.

Allah (Exalted be He) says:

O you who believe! Let your slaves and slave-girls, and those among you who have not come to the age of puberty ask your permission (before they come to your presence) on three occasions: before Fajr (morning) Salât (prayer), and while you put off your clothes for the noonday (rest), and after the ‘Ishâ’ (late-night) Salât (prayer). (These) three times are of privacy for you; other than these times there is no sin on you or on them to move about, attending to each other. Thus Allâh makes clear the Ayât (the Verses of this Qur’ân, showing proofs for the legal aspects of permission for visits) to you. And Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Wise.  [Surah Al-Nur, 24: 58]

Those who have reached the age of puberty are required to take permission at all times.

Allah (Exalted be He) says:

And when the children among you come to puberty, then let them (also) ask for permission, as those senior to them (in age). Thus Allâh makes clear His Ayât (Commandments and legal obligations) for you. And Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Wise. [Surah Al-Nur, 24: 59]

All this is for the purpose of keeping away Fitnah, protecting honors and eliminating the means leading to evil.

As for boys who are less than ten years old, it is permissible for them to sleep with their mothers and sisters in their beds, as they need care and to remove hardship. However, if there is no fear of Fitnah, it is permissible for them to sleep in the same room, even if they are adults, but each one on a separate bed.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Q 12: A man has many children and lives with his family in a small room that hardly accommodates them. What should he do in order not to contradict the order of the Messenger of Allah that children should be separated in beds at certain age?

A: Having separate beds for children is Wajib (obligatory) according to one’s ability. The Muslim should strive hard to fulfill that. Allah (Exalted be He) said, So keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him as much as you can The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, When I command you to do anything, do of it as much as you possibly can.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Advice for the youth in the begin stages of uprightness – By: Shaykh Abdul Aziz Aali Shaykh

ADVICE FOR THE YOUTH IN THE BEGIN STAGES OF UPRIGHTNESS

By: Shaykh Abdul Aziz Aali Shaykh

Question:

Asalaamu alaikum may Allaah treat you well and the muslim benefit from your knowledge; the questioner asks: for the youth that are in the being stage of uprightness (upon the truth); what do you advise him with? And how does he know the people who are upon the sound Manhaj from those who are upon an evil Manhaj?

Answer:

I advise him with the fear of Allaah and the praising of Allaah for saving him from misguidance and going astray and guided him to the straight path. (Also) let him search for the scholars who are adhering to the legislation (of Islam); and let him read their books and be diligent in gaining understanding of the religion of Allaah.

Let him distance himself from those who don’t have ability to be apparent in front of the people; And their followers are only hidden and concealed. Certainly these are the things that diverts from the upright inclination. These people desire that their evil affairs be concealed; so let him distant himself from these people. Let him search for a scholar that possesses taqwa; and he will give him insight and direct him.

He should read much of the Quran, Sunnah and the books of creed.

I ask Allaah that He prepares him for the possession of knowledge and that he is taken by his hand to what’s good.

Advice to our Youth – Abu Muhammad al-Maghribee [Audio|En]

In Islam the youth have an important place and as such deserve specific attention.

Here are a series of lectures delivered by our brother Abu Muhammad al-Maghribee on the 24th, 25th and 26th February 2012.  May Allaah reward him for his efforts in speading the Da’wah of the Salaf and keep him sincere in his efforts, ameen!!

Abu Muhammad says: “The child is like dough, when it fresh piece of dough.  When he was born, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years they don’t know much.  They don’t know anything.  Just like that fresh dough, you can shape it well roung.  You can make it long you can make it square you can cut it you can make it anyway you want it.  But once you cook it and it’s hard, can you do something else with it?  You can’t!  You are stuck with that.  Like wise,  certain people they neglect their children until they become a teenager, and they are already set up on one way or a different way… all of a sudden now the parents want to do something about it…”

For those brother and sisters that have never heard a lecture by Abu Muhammad, give him a try.   I find his lectures to the youth [amongst others] have a beautiful way of attracting their attention and focusing them on a topic.  My children love his lectures very much.

But, that is not to say in anyway that the adults can’t benefit!  They should listen to the lectures they download whether they by by Abu Muhammad or anyone else before giving them to their children.

The look is one of the poisonous arrows of the Devil – Shaykh Saalih Fawzan

The look is one of the poisonous arrows of the Devil. If a person shoots it out, it is indeed a poisonous missile that kills the one who sends it. This arrow returns back to the heart of the one looking.

The look is a poisonous arrow that returns to the heart of the onlooker, striking it and affecting it, or killing it and causing it to die. So none of them should look at what Allaah has forbidden. The creation of this look and this eyesight is a blessing, which humans must use for only that which Allaah has permitted. He must use them for only those things that Allaah has allowed and refrain from using them for those things that Allaah has forbidden. Allaah says about men: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze.” [Surah An-Noor: 30] And He says about women: “And tell the believing women to lower their gaze.” [Surah An-Noor: 31]

How to deal with the Teenage Phase ? – Permanent Committee

Q: How did the Prophet (peace be upon him) deal with the teenage phase of Muslim youth, in order to help them go through this stage?

A: The Prophet (peace be upon him) paid great attention to Muslim youth, and gave them and their parents special guidance and directives.

He gave the parents these instructions:

Command your children to pray when they become seven years old, and beat them for (neglecting) it when they become ten years old; and arrange their beds (to sleep) separately. Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawud.

He (peace be upon him) addressed the youth by saying: ‘O young people! Whoever among you is able to marry, should marry, for marriage helps him lower his gaze and keep his virtuousness, and whoever is not able to marry, is recommended to observe Sawm (fast), for Sawm diminishes his sexual desire. (Agreed upon by Imams Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family and Companions!
