Allah is Compassionate only to those among His slaves who are compassionate (to others) – Dr Saleh as-Saleh [Audio|En]

Usamah bin Zaid (May Allah be pleased with them) narrated:

The daughter of the Prophet (ﷺ) sent for him as her child was dying, but the Prophet (ﷺ) returned the messenger and sent her good wishes saying, “Whatever Allah takes away or gives, belongs to Him, and everything with Him has a limited fixed term (in this world), and so she should be patient and anticipate Allah’s reward.” She again sent for him adjuring him for the sake of Allah to come. The Messenger of Allah, accompanied with Sa’d bin ‘Ubadah, Mu’adh bin Jabal, Ubayy bin Ka’b, Zaid bin Thabit and some other men went to see her. The child was lifted up to the Messenger of Allah while his breath was disturbed in his chest. On seeing that, the eyes of the Prophet (ﷺ) streamed with tears. Sa’d said, “O Messenger of Allah! What is this?” He replied, “It is compassion which Allah has placed in the hearts of His slaves, Allah is Compassionate only to those among His slaves who are compassionate (to others)“.

Another version says: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Allah shows compassion only to those among His slaves who are compassionate“.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن أبي زيد أسامة بن زيد بن حارثة مولى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وحبه وابن حبه، رضي الله عنهما، قال‏:‏ أرسلت بنت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ إن ابني قد احتضر فاشهدنا، فأرسل يقرئ السلام ويقول‏:‏ ‏”‏إن لله ما أخذ، وله ما أعطى، وكل شيء عنده بأجل مسمى، فلتصبر ولتحتسب‏”‏ فأرسلت إليه تقسم عليه ليأتينها‏.‏ فقام ومعه سعد بن عبادة، ومعاذ بن جبل، وأبي بن كعب، وزيد بن ثابت، ورجال رضي الله عنهم، فرفع إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم الصبي فأقعده في حجره ونفسه تقعقع، ففاضت عيناه، فقال سعد‏:‏ يا رسول الله ماهذا‏؟‏ فقال‏:‏ ‏”‏هذه رحمة جعلها الله تعالى في قلوب عباده‏”‏ وفى رواية ‏:‏ ‏”‏في قلوب من شاء من عباده وإنما يرحم الله من عباده الرحماء‏”‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏ ‏.‏

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

When the last illness of Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) made him unconscious, Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with her) exclaimed: “Ah, the distress of my dear father.” He (ﷺ) said, “There will be no distress for your father after today“. When he died she said: “My father, Allah has called you back and you have responded to His Call. O father! Garden of Firdaus is your abode. O father!

3 Types of Information in the Qur’an & Surah Al-Ikhlas – Dr Saleh as Saleh [Short Clip|En]

Mp3: Points of Benefit in Salaat – 01- Surah al-Ikhlaas 112 – Dr Saleh as Saleh

Posted from: Pillar2 – Salah – Points of Benefit

Transcription of the Audio:

Bismillaah hir Rahman nir Raheem. Alhumdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen Wa sallallahu ala Muhammadin wa ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam

Point of benifits, this is the begining of a series of benifits inshaa Allaahu ta’ala which we will try to convey from Allaah (Subhana wata’ala) to make them benefit for myself and for every one who listens to them.

Point of benefit – concerning Soorat Al-Ikhlas chapter 112 – In the hadeeth it came that it equates that it is equivalent to one third of the Qur’an. How?

This is because the Qur’an is either

1) The news about Allaah, His names and attributes, His actions

2)The second aspect is that – it is the news about the creation of Allaah as to that which will occur in the future and that which occured before in the past from the nations and so forth.

3) Thirdly, he Qur’an comprises commands and prohibitions.

And so this soorah Ikhlas talks about Allaah. So it is of the first news and thats why it is the third of the Qur’an. Because we know the Qur’an now is three thirds. First third news is about Allaah and the second contains the news about the creation of Allaah, the third contains commands and prohibitions. So it is equivalent to one third of the Qur’an.

This soorah Allaah choose it to speak of Himself, purely about Himself. So, Allaah did not mention in it anything except that which relates to Him and His attributes. And this soorah is a deliverance. It delivers it’s reciter from shirk and from the denial and negation.

This concludes the point of benefit. The first point of benefit. We ask Allaah (Subhana wata’ala) to bestow upon me and you the beneficial knowledge by which we increase our eeman and correct our deeds.

Two Situations of Traveler’s Salah Without Wudu – Dr. Saleh as Saleh [Short Clip|En]

Points of Benefit in Salaat – 20- Two Situations of Traveler Without Wudu

Posted from: Points of Benefit in Salah – Dr Saleh as Saleh [Audio|En]

Transcription of the Audio Clip:

Another point of benefit, a traveler led by a resident Imam.

The traveler started his salah without wudu and completed the salah with the Imam. Then afterwards he remember that he entered the salah with the resident Imam without wudu. In this case, he makesup his salah as two rakah.

Second situation, the same as this one however during the salah he looses his ritual purity. Say for example a minor ritual impurity but this is during the salah. In this case he makes up his salah as four rakah.

Can you see the difference between these two situations?

نعم, so in the second situation his salah now linked to the Imam. But in the beginning he didn’t enter the salah. So his salah with him is two rakah initially. With the first situation he didn’t enter the salah because he didn’t have the state of purity to begin with. In the second, it is linked but it was then nullified. So, in this case he does the four rakah in the second situation to makeup and the first situation he brings two rakah. And this happens, this really happens a lot and the people don’t know what to do in terms of the makeup.

So at the first place the first person’s salah was not commenced in the first place and what is due upon him is two rakah for the problem. So in this case he didn’t enter any salah to begin with. So therefore he makesup his salah as regularly two. At the second situation, his salah commenced with the Imam correctly in the beginning, but it was corrupted during the salah. He lost his wudu after commencing the salah with the Imam. So in this case he makes it up as four.

Why was the Ka’bah Called Baytullaah Al-Haraam (Inviolable House of Allah)? – Dr Saleh As-Saleh [Short Clip|En]

FAQ – Clarifications – Why Was the Kabah Called Baytullaah Al-Haraam?

Source: Important Matters Requiring Clarification

Transcription of the Audio:

Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen wa sallalaahu ala nabeeyena Muhammad wa alaa alihi wa sahbhi wa sallama tasleeman kaseera

The Second Question is why was the Ka’abah called Baytullah Al Haraam, The inviolable house of Allah ?.

The Ka’bah was called Baytullah i.e The House of Allah. That is because it is the place of magnification of Allah(عز و جل) Most Mighty and Most Majestic.People come to it from all places in order to offer an obligation which Allah had ordained upon them and also because people direct themselves in its direction while in their prayers, wherever they may be fulfilling one of the conditions of the Salah i.e. directing one self towards the Qibla.

As Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) stated in Surah Al- Baqarah (2:144) :

قَدۡ نَرَىٰ تَقَلُّبَ وَجۡهِكَ فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ‌ۖ فَلَنُوَلِّيَنَّكَ قِبۡلَةً۬ تَرۡضَٮٰهَا‌ۚ فَوَلِّ وَجۡهَكَ شَطۡرَ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ‌ۚ وَحَيۡثُ مَا كُنتُمۡ فَوَلُّواْ وُجُوهَكُمۡ شَطۡرَهُ ۥ‌ۗ وَإِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ لَيَعۡلَمُونَ أَنَّهُ ٱلۡحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّهِمۡ‌ۗ وَمَا ٱللَّهُ بِغَـٰفِلٍ عَمَّا يَعۡمَلُونَ

Verily! We have seen the turning of your (Muhammad’s صلى الله عليه وسلم) face towards the heaven. Surely, We shall turn you to a Qiblah (prayer direction) that shall please you, so turn your face in the direction of Al-Masjid- Al-Harâm (at Makkah). And wheresoever you people are, turn your faces (in prayer) in that direction. Certainly, the people who were given the Scriptures (i.e. Jews and the Christians) know well that, that (your turning towards the direction of the Ka’bah at Makkah in prayers) is the truth from their Lord. And Allâh is not unaware of what they do.

And Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) narrated it to Himself added it when he mentioned the Ka’abah as an honour and magnification of it.

That is because that which is related to Allah in the construct of the statements by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is divided into two types:

1) The Attribute of Himself (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)
2) The creature of  his creation

If it is an attribute, then it is related because it is established with Him and Allah(عز و جل) is qualified by it, it is His attribute like Allah’s hearing, Allah’s sight, Allah’s knowledge, Allah’s ability, Allah’s speech and other than that from His most mighty and magnificent attributes.

If it s a creature from his creation, then it is added to Allah (عز و جل) in the construct as away of honouring and magnification and in this way Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)  related the Ka’abah to Himself when He said in Surah Al Hajj (22:26):

وَطَهِّرۡ بَيۡتِىَ لِلطَّآٮِٕفِينَ

And (remember) when We showed Ibrahim (Abraham) the site of the (Sacred) House (the Ka’bah at Makkah) (saying): “Associate not anything (in worship) with Me, [La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah Islamic Monotheism], and sanctify My House for those who circumambulate it, and those who stand up for prayer, and those who bow (submit themselves with humility and obedience to Allah), and make prostration (in prayer, etc.);” )

So He said ‘My House’ (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). He narrated it it to Himself in the construct of the verse.

And also He added to Himself the masaajid (the Mosques) as He said in Surah Al Baqarah (2:114):

ومن اظلم ممن منع مساجد الله ان يذكر فيها اسمه وسعى في خرابها اولئك ما كان لهم ان يدخلوها الا خائفين لهم في الدنيا خزي ولهم في الاخرة عذاب عظيم

And who is more unjust than those who forbid Allah’s Name be glorified and mentioned much (i.e. prayers and invocations, etc.) in Allah’s Mosques and strive for their ruin? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them (Allah’s Mosques) except in fear. For them there is disgrace in this world, and they will have a great torment in the Hereafter.

You see that now, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) added the mosques in the  construct to Himself in the relation ‘ ‘Allah’s Mosques” and also  (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) He may do the same regarding some of his creatures in order to make clear His comprehensive possession as in His statement  (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in Surah Al Jasiya (45:13):

“وسخر لكم ما في السماوات وما في الارض جميعا منه ان في ذلك لايات لقوم يتفكرون”

And has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth; it is all as a favour and kindness from Him. Verily, in it are signs for a people who think deeply.

So therefore  in summary  Allah  (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) referred the Ka’abah to Himself as an honour and magnification and no one should think that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) reffered the ka’abah to Himself because it is “a place in which He resides”. This is impossible because (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) encompasses everything and nothing from his creatures encompass Him, rather His Kursee(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) encompasses the Heavens and the Earth, as Allah Stated in Surah Al Baqarah (2:255) that his Kursee extends over the Heavens and the Earth.

And in Surah Zumar (39:67):

وما قدروا الله حق قدره والارض جميعا قبضته يوم القيامة والسماوات مطويات بيمينه سبحان

And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand.

And He is above His heavens ascended the throne in the most majestic way that befits Him and it’s not possible that He ( سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) dwells in any of his creation.

And Allah knows the best.

O mankind! Verily, the promise of Allah is true. So, let not this present life deceive you – Dr Saleh as Saleh [Short Clip|En]

11- Ar-Riqaaq – Softening the Hearts – Promise of Allaah Is True

Posted fromAl-Bukhari Book of Ar-Riqaaq – Based upon the explanation of Shaykh Ibn Al-‘Uthaymeen

The below is from Tafseer Ibn Kathir, darussalam publication

O mankind! Verily, the promise of Allah is true. So, let not this present life deceive you, and let not the chief deceiver deceive you about Allah. Surely, Shaytan is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He only invites his followers that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire. [Surah Fatir ver 5-6)

Then Allah says:

(O mankind! Verily, the promise of Allah is true.) meaning the Resurrection will undoubtedy come to pass.

(So, let not this present life deceive you,) means, `this life is as nothing in compare to the great good that Allah has promised to His close friends and the followers of His Messengers, so do not let these transient attractions distract you from that which is lasting.’

(and let not the chief deceiver deceive you about Allah.) This refers to Shaytan, as stated by Ibn `Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him. Meaning, do not let the Shaytan tempt you and divert you away from following the Messengers of Allah and believing what they say, for he is the chief deceiver and arch-liar. This Ayah is like the Ayah that appears at the end of Surah Luqman:

(let not then this (worldly) present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver deceive you about Allah) (31:33). Then Allah tells us of the enmity of Iblis towards the sons of Adam:

(Surely, Shaytan is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy.) meaning, `he has declared his enmity towards you, so be even more hostile towards him, oppose him and do not believe the things with which he tries to tempt you.’

(He only invites his followers that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire.) means, `he only wants to misguide you so that you will enter the blazing Fire with him.’ This is a manifest enemy, and we ask Allah, the All-Powerful and Almighty to make us enemies of Shaytan and to make us followers of the Book of Allah and of the way of His Messengers. For He is able to do whatever He wills and He will respond to all supplication. This is like the Ayah:

(And (remember) when We said to the angels: “Prostrate yourselves unto Adam.” So they prostrated themselves except Iblis. He was one of the Jinn; he disobeyed the command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblis) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you What an evil is the exchange for the wrongdoers.) (18:50)

Chapter: If somebody reaches sixty years of age, he has no right to ask Allah for a new lease of life.

Narrated Abu Huraira ( رضي الله عنه ) : The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,

“Allah will not accept the excuse of any person whose instant of death is delayed till he is sixty years of age.”

Narrated Abu Huraira ( رضي الله عنه ) : I heard Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) saying,

“The heart of an old man remains young in two respects, i.e., his love for the world (its wealth, amusements and luxuries) and his incessant hope.”

Narrated Anas bin Malik ( رضي الله عنه ) : Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,

“The son of Adam (i.e. man) grows old and so also two (desires) grow old with him, i.e., love for wealth and (a wish for) a long life.”

The Pillars of Kufr (Disbelief) – Imam Ibn al Qayyim | Dr Saleh as Saleh [Short Audio|En]

Based on Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah rahimahullaah

Listen / Download Mp3 Here (Time 14:51)

Transcription of the Audio:

Bismillaah hir Rahman nir Raheem. Alhumdulillahi Rabbil Aalameen
Wa sallallahu ala Muhammadin wa ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam

The pillars of Kufr are four, they are,

  • Haughtiness and disdainfullnes : This prevents the person from submission i.e. yielding.
  • Envy (Al Hasad) : This prevents him from accepting the naseehah i.e. the advice and from exerting it.
  • Anger (Al Ghadab) : This prevents him from being just.
  • Lusts : This prevents him from giving himself to worship.

If the pillar of false pride and haughtiness is demolished, then submission will become easy for him. If the pillar of envy is demolished, then it becomes easier for him to accept advice and to offer it. If the pillar of anger is demolished, it becomes easy for him to be just and humble. If the pillar of lust is demolished, it becomes easy for him to be patient and ready for worship.

The demolishing of mountains is much more easier than demolishing these four pillars for the one who is  afflicted with it, specially if they are entrenched in him and became as a firmed attribute, because no action can be upright with the presence of these pillars and no soul can be sanctified and purified having these established in it and whenever the person wants to exert himself to do or to act, these four pillars come and corrupt his work. And all other defects originate from these four and if these four are established in the heart it will make him see falsehood in the form of the truth and truth in the form of falsehood and good in the form of wrong and wrong in the form of good and it will make this life grow nearer to him and make the hereafter far removed from him.

If you contemplate the Kufr of the nations before, you will see that the Kufr of the nations originated from these four pillars and upon these four pillars the punishment will befall. The intensity of the punishment and it’s severity will depend upon how these four and entrenched. So whoever opens for himself these four pillars is indeed has opened all the doors of evil, sooner or later and whoever has closed the doors of these then he indeed has closed all the doors of evil because these four prevents submissiveness, sincerity, repentance and longing and turning to Allah, acceptance of the truth, the advice to the Muslims, humbleness to Allah and to his creation. This is what these four pillars can do.

The origin of these four pillars is from man’s ignorance concerning his Lord and ignorance concerning himself.  Had he known of his Lord qualified with the most perfect and magnificent attributes and had he known himself qualified with all forms of defects, he wouldn’t be haughty, angry, envious of others because envy in fact is one form of opposition to Allah because he dislikes the favour and blessing of Allah which he bestowed upon his slave while Allah loves that. Not only that, he likes that it to be rifted from his brother and Allah does not like that. So he is opposing Allah in his pre-decree and what Allah loves and his honour and that is why Iblees (Satan) is enemy  because his sin was due to haughtiness, arrogance and envy.

How can these be removed?

These two qualities, knowing Allah and Tawheed, and content with him and pleased with him and turning to him, takes away these two qualities of haughtiness and envy and taking anger away by knowing oneself that the self does not deserve all that so that to be angry for it and to avenge for its all sake. In this case this will prompt it to be contempt once this is taken out. Otherwise then this will be preference for the self over its creator and originator. The greatest thing to repel this defect is to train the self to get angry for Allah’s sake and whatever at any time enters the self this type of anger for Allah’s sake, there will exit the anger for its self and the opposite is true. As to the lust, its cure, its healing is in the correct knowledge. Yielding to the self’s lust deprives it from the correct knowledge and putting it on a diet in that respect puts it on the linkage with the correct knowledge. The more you are open the door for lusts, the more you are trying to deprive the self  from the correct knowledge and the more you close it, the more you will be linked to the correct knowledge.

Anger is like the wild animal. If its owner releases it, it starts by eating him up first. Lust is like the fire when the person ignites it it begins by burning him there in first. Al-Kibr, haughtiness, false pride, arrogance is like confronting the king regarding the king’s possession and kingdom, if he does not destroy you he will expel you. Envy is like opposing someone who is more powerful and more stronger than you.

This is based on Imam Ibn Al Qayim’s (rahimahAllah) specification of these four pillars of Kufr.
