Ruling On The Moon Splitting Asunder – Shaykh al-Albaani [Video|Ar-En]

Uploaded by LearntoReadTheKuran

The following is taken from Tafsir Ibn Kathir:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

(1. The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder.) (2. And if they see an Ayah, they turn away and say: “This is magic, Mustamir.”) (3. They denied and followed their own lusts. And every matter will be settled.) (4. And indeed there has come to them news wherein there is Muzdajar.) (5. Perfect wisdom, but warners benefit them not.) (Surah Qamar 1-4)

Imam Ahmad recorded that Anas bin Malik said,

“The people of Makkah asked the Prophet for a miracle and the moon was split into two parts in Makkah. Allah said, (The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder.)”

Muslim also collected this Hadith. Al-Bukhari recorded that Anas bin Malik said,

“The people of Makkah asked the Messenger of Allah to produce a miracle, and he showed them the splitting of the moon into two parts, until they saw (the mount of) Hira’ between them.”

This Hadith is recorded in the Two Sahihs with various chains of narration.

Imam Ahmad recorded that Jubayr bin Mut`im said,

“The moon was split into two pieces during the time of Allah’s Prophet ; a part of the moon was over one mountain and another part over another mountain. So they said, `Muhammad has taken us by his magic.’ They then said, `If he was able to take us by magic, he will not be able to do so with all people.”’

Only Imam Ahmad recorded this Hadith with this chain of narration. Al-Bayhaqi used another chain of narration in a similar Hadith he collected in Ad-Dala’il.

Al-Bukhari recorded that Ibn `Abbas said, “The moon was split during the time of the Prophet .” Al-Bukhari and Muslim collected this Hadith. Ibn Jarir recorded that Ibn `Abbas commented on Allah’s saying:

(The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder. And if they see a sign, they turn away and say: “This is magic, Mustamir.”) “This occurred before the Hijrah; the moon was split and they saw it in two parts.”

The Ruling On Putting Personal Pictures In Social Networks [like Facebook, Twitter and etc]


This questioner asks on the ruling of putting personal pictures as a member on websites especially on Facebook and Twitter?

Shaykh ´Ubayd bin ´Abdillâh al-Jâbirî:

I say that the pictures of souls are haram and it is from the kabaa’ir (the major sins).

The Messenger, [salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam], said: “The people who will be most severely punished on the Day of Judgement will be the image-makers.”

And he, [salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam], also stated that the image maker will be presented with an image and it will say ‘Blow a spirit therein, which he will not be able to do’.

And from this we know that it is not permissible to publish pictures (images) of people in Twitter or other networks. When the agency responsible (for the networks) request a picture for a specific matter such as licences (for traffic) and security (passports etc) and other authority bodies that employs a person, then it becomes necessary or in need of. And it cannot exceed further than this.

al-Fawzan: Who, if not Ahl-ul-Ahwa? (Emotional, explicit, must see) [Video|Ar-En]

Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Date: 1427-11-19/2006-12-10
Translation & video: (site no more exists)

Reciter: Imâm al-Barbahârî said:

“Bear in mind that all whims are evil. They all call to the sword.” (Sharh-us-Sunnah 147)

Shaykh al-Fawzân: They call to the sword, that is, to the tribulation. The civil wars and splitting has only been caused by Ahl-ul-Ahwâ’ such as Mu’tazilah, Khawârij and others from among Ahl-ul-Ahwâ’. They are the ones who are responsible for the tribulations; Mu’tazilah, Khawârij, Rawâfidh and others. The tribulations have only been caused by them.

Who killed ‘Uthmân (radhiya Allâhu ‘anh)?

Who killed ‘Alî bin Abî Tâlib (radhiya Allâhu ‘anh)?

Who caused the tribulations between the Muslims after that if not these Ahl-ul-Ahwâ’?

Who was it that got al-Ma’mûn and his successors to put Ahl-us-Sunmnah on trial so that they even dragged their Imâm Ahmad bin Hanbal (rahimahullâh), beat him and imprisoned him if not Ahl-ul-Ahwâ’?

Who was it that imprisoned Shaykh-ul-Islâm Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullâh) so that he died in the prison if not these Ahl-ul-Ahwâ’?

We are obliged to beware of these people. Their evil leads to the splitting of the Muslims, rebellion against the Muslim ruler and that the Muslims scatter into sects and groups instead of being one single nation (Ummah).

Wife Sitting In The Company Of Her Husband And His Friends ? – Shaikh Al-Albani

Wife Sitting with Her Husband and His Friends
Sheikh Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen al-Albaanee رحمه الله
Silsilatul-huda wan-Noor Tape 4

Question to Sheikh Albani:

Is it permissible for a husband to sit with his friends in the company of his wife? And what are the conditions of that?

Shaikh Al-Albani:

Firstly, Islam does not approve of this kind of gathering because it’s a type of mixing.

Secondly, if it is necessary the conditions – of course – are known, but observing them is difficult. So from the conditions is what we mentioned previously:

1. Each one should be covered with the proper Islamic veil, meaning; that she should not be wearing shiny and beautiful clothes which attract attention, as is the case with women in their homes. Also these garments should not be tight or short for example, where it defines the legs or thighs or similar to that.

What’s important is that their clothing contains the conditions of the veil which I mentioned in the introduction to my book: (The veil of the Muslim woman).

2. Add to that – that the conversation in these sittings should contain in it modesty and good manners and dignity so as not to prompt any of those present from the men or women to smile or laugh or giggle.

So if the conversation has these conditions and is found to be necessary, then the sitting is permissible, but I believe that fulfilling these conditions especially in our time is almost impossible.

Sadly, most Muslims today don’t know the Islamic rulings (what is permissible) and (what is not permissible), and those from them who have knowledge of these rulings, very few of them follow and apply these rulings.

So for that I don’t imagine a gathering between relatives which would contain all of these condition, this is something purely imaginary. And for that the matter is as the Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has said:

(…“And between them are unclear matter which many people have no knowledge of, so whoever guards against the unclear matters he will protect his religion and his honor, verily every King has his prohibited land and verily, the prohibited land of Allah is that which he has forbidden.Verily whoever grazes his Flock around a Sanctuary, he will soon fall in it”).

And from this hadith; some people of old times have taken a slang saying: (Distance yourself from evil and sing for it.) This is a slang proverb […] and the second saying: (The one who doesn’t want to see ruined dreams should not sleep between the graves). Like this.

What Did Abu Dharr Eat During His 30 Days In Makkah – Dr Murtaza bin Baksh [Video – Urdu/English]

It was reported in Sahih Muslim that the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to Abu Dharr, who had stayed near the Ka’bah and its coverings for forty days and nights with no food or drink other than (Zamzam), “How long have you been here?” Abu Dharr said, “I have been here for thirty days and nights.” The Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said, “Who has been feeding you?” He said, “I have had nothing but Zamzam water, and I have gotten so fat that I have folds of fat on my stomach. I do not feel any of the tiredness or weakness of hunger and I have not become thin.” The Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said, “Verily, it is blessed, it is food that nourishes.” [Narrated by Imam Muslim, 2473]

al-Fawzan about Jarh upon Ahl-ul-Bid’ah and the Principles of Adnan Ar’ur [Video|Ar-En]

[Video|Arabic-English Captions]

Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Translation & video:

Question: We’re wondering about a few principles. We would like to hear with you whether they agree with the confirmed principles of Ahl-us-Sunnah. The first principle is “We correct without criticising (Jarh)”. What do you say about that?

Shaykh al-Fawzân: It is baseless. That principle is baseless. People who stick to that which is false have to be criticised.

Questioner: The second principle is “If you judge, you will be judged, and if you call, you will be rewarded.” What do you say about this principle?

al-Fawzân: It is innovated. It is unfounded. People who stick to that which is false have to be judged.

Questioner: The third principle is: “It is from justice to mention the good and bad sides.” The person argued for it with the known Hadîth:

“He spoke the truth to you whilst he is a liar.”

What do you say about this?

al-Fawzân: This is also false. This speech is also false. Allâh mentioned the bad sides of the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans or idolaters) without mentioning the good sides.

Questioner: Does this also apply to Ahl-ul-Bid’ah?

al-Fawzân: What about Ahl-ul-Bid’ah?

Questioner: He says that it is from justice to also mention their good and bad sides…

al-Fawzân: It’s the same thing. Their bad sides are mentioned unlike their good ones. Allâh mentioned the bad sides of the enemies without mentioning their good sides. Are these ‘Ar’ûr’s principles?

Questioner: Yes, these are his principles.

al-Fawzân: They are all rejected and false. He has been refuted in several books.

Questioner: The fifth principle is “It is allowed to say that a person is wrong but it is forbidden to slander him.”

al-Fawzân: This is just as “We correct without criticizing”. They are the same.

Questioner: He gave an example and asked why Imâm Ahmad is not condemned when making Takfîr upon the one who does not perform the prayer whilst Sayyid Qutb is condemned when he expresses himself in certain ways so that we say that he makes Takfîr upon the societies while Imâm Ahmad is not condemned when he makes Takfîr upon all these multitudes? What do you say about this?

al-Fawzân: Imâm Ahmad was incredibly learned. He knew the evidence and how they were to be used. Sayyid Qutb was ignorant and had no knowledge. He had no evidence for what he said. It is unjust to compare Imâm Ahmad with Sayyid Qutb.

Questioner: He also says that he does not know of anybody today in the world who has spoken about methodological matters such as Sayyid Qutb and that most of what he has written is correct. When he was put on the spot, he said that he with “methodological matters” meant affairs of elections and assassinations and that he with “today” meant the fifties…

al-Fawzân: He does not know. He does not know because he is ignorant. We know – and all praise is due to Allâh – that the scholars before and after Sayyid Qutb do not agree with him.

Questioner: He also says that there exists a call that consists of criticizing the people due to some mistake or unclear utterance and [unclear sound]. What do you say about that?

al-Fawzân: It is empty speech. He wants to whitewash the falsehood and defend those who stick to that which is false.

Questioner: He says that he who follows up the discord of the groups will find that the reason mostly is the character and not the creed or the methodology. Is that true?

al-Fawzân: The reasons are due to the creed and not the character. He wants to cover them up.

Question: What do you say about him?

al-Fawzân: He is no scholar at all. He came to Saudi Arabia as a craftsman. He thereafter revealed what he stands by.

Questioner: Should we refrain from going to his lessons? He is coming to Europe. Do you advise the Salafi-youth to attend his lessons?

al-Fawzân: I advise the Salafî-youth to boycott his lessons and that they do not attend them.

Transcription of the above Audio :

Then we travelled to ‘Kassala’ in Sudan.
It was Maasha Allaah.
We did Da’wah there.
We talked and Allaah benefited the people there.
It is a small town, so we visited all of the Masaajid there.
They said :
“There is only one masjid that we have not visited yet.
And it is upon the Tijaanee methodology.
And it is a Masjid that we have never been able to enter.”
Because they are very stubborn.
I said :
“We will go there and ask permission.
If they permit us to speak, we will speak.
If they do not permit us to speak, we will leave.
And that is up to Allaah.
We did not come here with force.”
So we went there and the Imaam led the prayer.
After the prayer, I gave him salaam.
[And said to him] :
“Do you mind if I give a small talk to these brothers?”
So he said : “Go ahead.”
So I spoke, may Allaah bless you, and I called to Allaah.
And I called to Tawheed and I called to the Sunnah and so on.
And at the same time I refuted the mistakes.
And the misguided beliefs that were present.

Until I reached the hadeeth of A’isha where she said:
“3 things, if anyone were to tell them to you, Tthen he has lied upon Allaah a great lie.
Whoever tells you that Muhammad has seen his Lord has lied a great lie upon Allaah.
And whoever says that Muhammad, knows the future, has lied a great lie against Allaah.
And whoever claims that Muhammad did not relate the whole religion to the people has lied against Allaah a great lie.
[Bukhaaree and Muslim]

So he got up and said :
“By Allaah, Muhammad saw his Lord with his own two eyes that are on his head.”
So I said to him :
“May Allaah reward you with good.
As for A’isha, [radiAllaahu anhaa], she is the most knowledgeable of his affairs.
And she said that he did not see his Lord.
And By Allaah, if he had seen his Lord he would have told her.”
He kept on talking, so I said to him :
“Wait until I have finished what I have to say.
And then you can ask whatever you like.
That which I know, I will answer.
That which I do not know, I will tell you : Allah knows best.”
I left him and I continued speaking.
And I was not really sure if he stayed or if he left.
Slowly I heard one of the men in the crowd saying :
“By Allaah, what this ‘Zuul’ is saying is the truth”
Zuul means man, in Sudan.
Slowly he said :
“By Allaah, what this man is saying is the Truth”
I used : “Allaah said….” and “The Messenger of Allaah said….”
May Allaah bless you.
Then the athaan of Isha was called and I finished my speech.
Then the Iqaamah was called.
And the people started pushing me to lead the prayer.
So I said :
“Never, never. The Imaam should lead the prayer.”
They said :
“By Allaah, you lead the prayer!”
So I said “OK” and I led the prayer.
After the prayer, the youth from Ansar us-Sunnah and myself left the masjid.
And I asked :
“Where is the Imaam?”
They said “They kicked him out!”
“Who kicked him out!?”
“His own Jamaa’ah kicked him out!”
By Allaah, this is what happened!
But if one was to come to them with this foolishness and insult them, meaning the Tijaaniyyah, the Burhaaniyyah and so forth, If one was to say this, who would accept it!?
But if you came to them with wisdom and kindness.
May Allaah bless you.
Allaah benefited them!
Allaah benefited them with this!
So O brothers, use beneficial knowledge.
And strong irrefutable evidences.
And beneficial wisdom in your Da’wah.
And it is upon you to have all of the beautiful manners that the Book Of Allaah and the Prophet of Guidance encouraged[Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa sallam]
Because they are the tools of Victory.
And they are the tools of Success.
And believe me when I say that the Sahaabah did not spread Islaam and have it enter into the hearts of the people, except with Wisdom and their character, more then with the sword.
Because the one enters Islam by sword will probably not remain steadfast.
The one who entered Islaam by way of knowledge and evidence….He is the one who will have strong faith.
So it is upon you to follow these good ways.
And it is upon you to be serious about knowledge.
As it is upon you to be serious about giving Da’wah to Allaah.

A Message to the Woman – by Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan [Video|Ar-En]

Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Lecture: Risâlah ilâl-Mar’ah
Reference: Maktabah

Shaykh Fawzaan (hafidahullâh) said:

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

All praise is due to Allâh and may the blessings and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad and all of his family and companions.

In these two blessed Friday sermons, we have heard a lot of good by our preacher (Khatîb) –may Allâh grant him success. He spoke on one of the most serious issues, namely the issue of women.

O brothers! Allâh (subhânahu wa ta’âlâ) created the woman, just as the man, for a great duty in this life. Each got their (own) task. The men got their tasks and the women got their tasks. If each stick to their own task and fulfill it, the society would attain a great deal of good. If this order were to be shaken, a great deficiency would occur, just as you heard about the role of the woman in the pre-Islamic time of ignorance, as well as her role in the disbelieving countries of today and her role with the religious Muslims.

The woman is very important and that is why the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered that she is well taken care of. He said in his Kutbah (sermon) on ‘Arafah in connection to his farewell pilgrimage:

“Treat your women well, for they are captives with you.” (Ibn Mâjah 1851)

The prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered us to take good care of the women because they play an important role in the society. It’s not only about taking good care of them and giving them their due rights… this is obligatory, what is more important is to protect them from indecencies – the woman is weak as you know – and [to protect them from] trying appearances [i.e. fitnah] and letting them do whatever they want to do. This is the most important thing the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered [in regards to women], namely that we protect them. Allâh (jalla wa ‘alâ) said:

الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاء بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ وَبِمَا أَنفَقُواْ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللّهُ

“Men are in charge of women, because Allâh has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allâh and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allâh orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband’s property, etc.).” (The Qur’ân 4:34)

What does it mean that the man is in charge of the woman? Is it only about providing (for her) and justice? It is not only about that. His responsibility is (also) about something that is more important. He should namely protect this woman so that she doesn’t lose it, frees herself and [begins to] take shyness and chastity lightly. This is the greatest responsibility of the man in regards to the woman.

The “man” in the verse is not only referring to the husband. The man, whether it be her father, brother or some other guardian, is responsible for her and protects her. If it were to go to the length of him having to punish her, he then does it1:

وَاللاَّتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَاهْجُرُوهُنَّ فِي الْمَضَاجِعِ وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ

“But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them.” (The Qur’ân 4:34, interpretation of the meanings)

The woman is thus in need of being under observation.

The enemies of Islam of these days concentrate on the issue of women. They know that she is the most serious matter in the society. They focus on her. They wage war against the chastity and honour and consider it to be oppression against women. If the woman sticks to chastity and honour, they say that she is deprived of liberty. The fact of the matter is that it is just at that time her freedom (liberty) is preserved (i.e. when she sticks to chastity and honour). She can feely obey Allâh, raise her children and fulfill that which Allâh has given her as a responsibility. She is as a shepherdess in the home of her husband and (is) responsible for her flock. This is her true freedom.

As for her freedom in nudity, indecencies in front of other people, flirtatious gait in the stores/shops and the ability to go wherever she wants to, then this is a type of slavery and not a freedom. It’s slavery to temptation and satan.

O servants of Allâh! Freedom lies in obeying and worshiping Allâh. Therein lies the glory of the soul and the honour of the human and their happiness in this life and the next one. The one who acts disobediently towards Allâh and his commands, whether it is about women or anything else, is one of the degraded slaves of the devils among the humans and the Jinns. It is slavery and not freedom.

We have to know this! We have to preserve our women among the wives, daughters and relatives. We have to cooperate in protecting them and to refrain from listening to this propaganda [by the Kuffâr in west]. The Kuffâr (disbelievers) are trying to eradicate Islam by all possible means. The greatest ways of destruction is to destroy the woman. Because the woman is the basis of the family and the home. If she is destroyed, the home and the family is destroyed as well. The daughters will be destroyed after having copied their destroyed mothers and relatives. Thus, we have to safeguard our women.

Even If the Kuffâr have been successful in degrading some Islamic countries, they will never – by the will and motion of Allâh – succeed in doing the same thing with this county, which is the country of the two holy mosques in which the revelation was sent down to and in which the messenger (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was sent. Herein are men who take care of her honour, even if some deluded men and women take this issue lightly. This country has men who safeguard their honour and the honour of their female relatives. You belong to them – in sha’ Allâh – and (those) who will initiate it.

We have to fear Allâh (subhânahu wa ta’âlâ) and live up to this great responsibility. If we do it, we’ll protect our homes, children, families and societies. She is thusly the basis. Thus, the enemy focuses on her. They are focused on the woman. They got her in a specific focus you are familiar with; in books, papers, magazines, newspapers, media, internet, and all other (possible) fields. They want this country to end up as the other countries so that the manners disappear and the honour gets lost. It will then become easy for the Kuffar (disbelievers) to eradicate Islam from its basis. The poet said:

‘The nations exist as long as their manners exist, when their manners vanish, so do they.’

If the manners disappear, then there is nothing left. The purpose of the manners is the honour, behavior, shyness and dignity. This is what the manners are (ahlâq). Another poet said:

‘I do not say that one should allow the women to show their faces as the men and to walk around in the shops, they have a lot of duties in their homes as the man who is the possessor of the sword and the spear.’2

The woman has her line of work and the man has his. If each of them does their suitable works, the society will then be good and the welfare will be complete. But if this order were to be shaken, the society would then become deficient. That is why the prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) cursed the masculine women and the feminine men. All of this just to preserve the woman and allow her to stay in her natural nature, religion, character and honour. The glory and honour should be protected and preserved. Read the chapter “an-Nûr” (of the Qur’ân). You will find therein how greatly and notably the women are protected with covering and permission before one enters into the homes. The same goes for the Sunnah. The prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) forbade the woman from travelling alone without a Mahram and said:

“It is not allowed for a woman who believes in Allâh and the Last day to travel without a Mahram.”
(al-Bukhari [3006] and Muslim [1341])

He forbade that she is alone in private with a man who’s not her Mahram and said:

“A man is not alone with a woman but that the Shaytân makes a third.” (at-Tirmidhi 1171)

He forbade the women from mixing with the men. That is why the women prayed with the Muslims behind the messenger of Allâh (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and behind the men in the mosque of the messenger of Allâh (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam). They were so covered that no one could recognize them. They prayed behind the men. Herein is a proof that mixing is prohibited between both of the sexes. If a woman is not allowed to mix with men in the mosque, which is a place of worship and piousness, one can then ask how she would be allowed to mix with them in offices, amusement parks, parties, and markets. This matter is very serious. We’re surrounded by the enemy now and an ideological warfare. You are well aware of the ideological warfare that is taking place now. The Kuffar (disbelievers) are waging war against the Muslim countries with weapons, ideologies and all other means. We are, as I said before, surrounded by the enemy. We have to be observant.

If we are with Allâh, Allâh is with us. He said:

لَا تَخَافَا إِنَّنِي مَعَكُمَا أَسْمَعُ وَأَرَى

“He (Allâh) said: “Fear not, verily! I am with you both, hearing and seeing.” (The Qur’ân 20:46)

If we are with Allâh, Allâh is then with us. And if Allâh is with us, nobody can hurt us:

لاَ تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَنَا

“Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allâh is with us.” (The Qur’ân 9:40, interpretation of the meanings)

But who is Allâh with? Allâh is especially with the pious, those who do the right and the believers. We thusly have to be with Allâh (subhânahu wa ta’âlâ). The prophet (sallâ Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to Ibn ‘Abbâs [what means]:

“Boy! Take care of Allâh and He will take care of you. Take care of Allâh and you will find Him in front of you.”
(at-Tirmidhî 2516)

We have to, as I said before, be with Allâh, obey Him and follow His commands and avoid His prohibitions for Him (subhânahu wa ta’âlâ) to be with us with His victory, His support and His help.

I ask Allâh for forgiveness and I repent before Him. And I ask Allâh to preserve us and you with His preservation and that He looks after us and you with His victory and help. And may the blessings and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad and all of his family and companions

Wife hates that her husband practices polygyny, is she now a Kafirah? – Shaykh Salih Fawzan

Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Source:, Reference:


The wife hates that her husband should marry with another woman even though she knows that Allâh has prescribed it and allowed it. Is she now considered to hate something Allâh has prescribed?

Shaykh al-Fawzân:

This question has been posed several times. It is a natural hate, not a religious such. She is not hating that which Allâh has revealed. She is a believer and a Muslim. This is part of the female jealousy. This is the jealousy among the women. It is only part of the natural hate. It is not a hate towards that which Allâh has prescribed. It is only a hate towards the co-wife.

The difference between Takfir upon a kind and Takfir upon an individual – Shaykh Abdul-Karîm al-Khudhayr

Scholar: ´Allâmah ´Abdul-Karîm bin ´Abdillâh al-Khudhayr
Source:, Reference:,

Question: Does the one who says that the Qur’ân is created apostate?

Shaykh al-Khudhayr:

Salaf did Takfîr upon the one who says that the speech of Allâh is created. This however, is Takfîr upon a kind and not upon an individual. It is for example not said that az-Zamakhsharî was a disbeliever because of him being a Mu’tazilî and Mu’tazilah say that the Qur’ân is created. The opinion [that it is created] is nevertheless disbelief. There is a difference between Takfîr upon a kind and attribute and [the Takfîr] upon an individual. To make Takfîr upon an individual, it is required that the conditions are met while the obstacles are removed.

al-Haa’iyyah Poem of Ibn Abee Dawood – Text & Video

Text below: [Arabic Text Download Here]

(1) Hold tightly to the rope of Allaah and the guidance,
And do not be an innovator, so that you might be successful.

(2) And practice your religion based on the Book of Allaah and the Sunan which
have come from the Messenger of Allaah so you will be saved and earn reward.

(3) And say: Not a created thing is the Speech of our great King,
Such was the religious position of the pious ones (before us) which they clearly expressed.

(4) And do not be a person who takes no position on the Quran,
As did the followers of Jahm, and they had been too lax (to take the right position).

(5) And do not say that the Quran is created, meaning: its recitation,
Since the Speech of Allaah, through its recitation, is made clear.

(6) And say: Allaah will make himself visible to the creation, openly,
Just as the full moon is not hard to see, and your Lord (will be seen) more clearly.

(7) And He was not born, nor has He fathered anyone,
Nor is there anything similar to Him, exalted be the Glorified One.

(8) A Jahmee rejects this, however, we have
As a testimony to the truth of what we say – a hadeeth that clarifies it.

(9) Jareer narrated it, from the words of Muhammad,
So say what he said about that, and you will be successful.

(10) And certainly a Jahmee will deny His Right Hand as well,
While both of His Hands are giving out all kinds of bounties.

(11) And say: The Ever-Compelling descends each night,
Without asking how, magnificent is the One God and most worthy of praise.

(12) Down to the lowest heaven, granting bounties from His Grace,
As the gates of the heavens are opened and spread widely.

(13) He says: Is there anyone seeking forgiveness who would like to meet a Forgiver?
Or anyone seeking bounties of goodness and provisions, so he could be given (what he requests)?

(14) A group have reported this whose reports are not to be rejected,
But sadly some have went wrong and did not believe them, marring themselves.

(15) And say: Indeed the best of the people after Muhammad
Were his two deputies of old, and then ‘Uthmaan, according to the most correct position.

(16) And the fourth of them was the best of creation after them,
‘Alee, the companion of goodness, through goodness he was successful.

(17) Those are the people, those who we have no doubt about,
Upon the great camels of Firdows, shining brightly and roaming about.

(18) Sa’eed, Sa’d, Ibn ‘Awf, Talhah,
Aamir of Fihr, and Zubayr the praiseworthy.

(19) And speak with the best terms about the Companions, all of them,
And do not be one who speaks ill of them, pointing out their faults and criticizing,

(20) Since the clear Revelation has spoke of their excellence,
And in (Soorah) al-Fath are verses about the Companions, praising them.

(21) And regarding the pre-ordained Qadr, be convinced, since it is
The pillar that combines many affairs of the Religion, and the Religion encompasses much.

(22) And do not reject, out of ignorance, (belief in) Nakeer and Munkar,
Or the Pool or the Scales, surely you are being advised sincerely.

(23) And say: Allaah, the Great, will remove, from of His Grace,
Out of the Fire, people, burned severely, who will then be tossed

(24) Into the river in Firdows, wherein they will regain life by its water,
Like a seed taken by a flood that comes and wipes things away with its abundant water.

(25) And surely, the Messenger of Allaah will intercede for the creation.
And speak about the punishment of the grave, that it is the truth, made clear.

(26) And do not make takfeer of those who pray, even if they commit sins,
Since all of them commits sins, while the Owner of the Throne forgives graciously.

(27) And do not hold a belief like that of the Khawaarij, for it is
A position held by only those who desire it, and it is destructive and disgraceful.

(28) And do not be a Murji’, one who plays games with his religion,
Surely, the Murji’ is joking about the religion (ie. not taking it seriously).

(29) And say: Eemaan (faith) consists of statements, intentions (i.e. belief of the heart)
And Actions, according to the explicit statement of the Prophet.

(30) And it decreases sometimes, due to disobedience, and sometimes
Because of obedience it grows, and on the Scale it will outweigh (other things).

(31) And keep yourself from the opinions of people and their stances,
Since the stance of the Messenger of Allaah is more befitting and comforting to the chest.

(32) And do not be from those who play games with their religion,
Attacking the people of hadeeth and reviling them.

(33) If you keep the belief contained within this poem all your life, O my companion,
You will be upon goodness, day and night.

Ruling regarding women’s sports | Imâm Ibn Bâz

Ruling regarding women’s sports | Imâm Ibn Bâz

Scholar: Imâm ´Abdul-´Azîz bin ´Abdillâh bin Bâz
Reference: –

Question: What is the ruling regarding women’s sports?

Shaykh Ibn Bâz:

It varies. It is permissible if it occurs only among women in a way that does not contradict the Sharî’ah. An example of it is running in a place that is separate for women and [a place] that men can’t visit. Another example is swimming in their houses or in swimming pools where no men can visit. If the men neither can see them or come in contact with them, the deed [would then be] allowed.

But if the deed is practiced by both men and women together or that the men see the women or that there are factors that harm the Muslims, the deed would then not be considered as allowed. Thus, this matter is detailed.

It is namely allowed if the deed is specific for women and no sins occur while it does not occur mixedly with men such that the place is hidden and distant from the men. This is concerning running, swimming and other competitions.
