Verily the children of Israaeel were Destroyed when they Started Story Telling – Shaykh al-Albaani

One of the Reasons for the Destruction of the Jews :

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said,
“Verily the children of Israaeel were destroyed when they started story telling”

Shaykh Alalbani said: Said (Ibn Atheer) in An-nihaya:

Meaning they relied upon speech and left off actions. So that was the reason for their destruction. Or vice versa; When they left off actions they were destroyed and then turned to story telling.

So I (Al-Albani) say:

It is possible to say that the reason for their destruction was the importance their preachers gave to story telling and tales and not to fiqh or beneficial knowledge through which people know their religion, what would have carried them towards righteous actions. So when they did that they were destroyed.

So this is the case of many of the story tellers of our era. Those whose speech revolves around Judeo-Christian traditions, heart softeners and sayings of the soofis. And Allah’s safety is sought.

"Whenever I waiver and become indecisive" – Ibn Taymiyyah

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said: 
“Indeed whenever I waiver and become indecisive in my mind about an issue, or about something or a situation [which is problematic for me] then I ask forgiveness of Allaah the Most High, a thousand times or more, or less until He opens my chest for me and solves the problem which I was confused about. Even if at that time I was in a market place, or in a masjid or in a mountain pass or a school, that does not prevent me from the remembrance [of Allaah] and asking for forgiveness until I achieve my objective.” 
[Al-‘Uqoodad-Durriyyah min Manaaqib Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah by Ibn ‘Abdul-Haadee (d.748 H), page 5, Daar Kutub al-‘Ilmiyyah Print, with the checking of Muhammad Haamid al-Faqee].

The first dialogue between woman and man – Imam Ibn Kathir

Suddi narrated through Abu Saalih and Abu Maalik from Ibn ‘Abbaas and Ibn Mas’ud, and also from some other Companions who said:

Iblis (Satan) was expelled from Paradise and Adaam was made to dwell in it. He wandered through it alone as he had no partner in whom he could seek his comfort. However, once he slept and when he woke up, he found a woman sitting near his head, whom Allaah had created from his rib. Adam asked her: “What are you?” She replied: “A woman.” He asked her again: “What are you created for?” She answered: “So you could seek comfort in me.” Angels who were well aware of the extent of the knowledge of Adam asked: “What is her name O Adaam?” He said: “Eve (Hawwa).” They asked him: “Why is it Hawwa?” Adam replied: “Because she was created from something living.

Sincere Advice from the Sheikhah Umm Abdillah Al-Waad’eeyah

This is the response to what the Sheikhah Umm Abdillah Al-Waad’eeyah, may Allah preserve her, had when a flyer was shown and translated to her, for a sisters beauty and spa gathering in the west. The request was made to the sister Umm Abdillah Al-Britaaniyah, may Allah preserve her, to ask the Sheikhah about this issue.

The response from the Sheikhah:

All praises are due to Allah. And may the prayer and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah alone without any partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is his slave and messenger. To proceed:

Firstly, it is upon every Muslim woman to know that Allah has made it obligatory upon her to remain at home. As He has said:

وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ ٣٣:٣٣

“And stay in your homes (Oh you women) and do not display your adornments or beauty like the days of Ignorance”

So this is the foundation, however if it becomes necessary for her to leave her home then there is no objection. Provided that she leaves for a reason permitted by the legislation of Al-Islaam. This is because of the speech of the Prophet:

قد أنِنَ الله لكُنَّ أنْ تُخْرُجْنَ لِحَوائِجِكُنَّ

“Indeed it has been permitted for you (women) to leave your homes”

Collected in the Saheeh of Imaam Muhammad bin Ismaa’eel Al-Bukhaari #5237

Furthermore, if she leaves her home then it is likewise obligatory upon her to wear Al-Hijaab in a well-mannered fashion with modesty. As for a woman leaving her home to such events mentioned in the question, then it includes wasting time. Also, it is from resembling the disbelieving women, which is forbidden. The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

من تشبَّهَ بِقومٍ فهو منهم

“Whoever resembles a people then he is from them”

Narrated from Abdullah bin ‘Umar Collected in the Musnad of Imaam Ahmad Vol. 2 page 50 and Graded Hasan by Imaam Al-Albaani

It also includes polishing the nails with nail polish. This act as a barrier against water when performing ablution. And whatever does this is prohibited. Except in the case of the menstruating woman. It also includes the women taking a bath or relaxing in water for hours. This legislatively is called “الحمامات” (Spas) and is prohibited (for women) because of the Hadeeth narrated by ‘Aaisha. She reported that the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

أيُّما امرَأةٍ وَضَعَتْ ثِيابَها في غَيرِ بيتِ زَوْجِها, هَتَكَتْ ما بينَها و بينَ اللهِ

“Which ever woman takes off her clothing in other than her husband’s house then she has indeed ripped the protection between her and Allah.”

This Hadeeth is Saheeh collected in the Musnad of Imaam Ahmad

So to summarize, it is not permissible to attend such events because of the contradictions to the legislation of Al-Islaam it presents. Such as wasting time and spending a lot of money without a justified reason. Also, I add to this subject that perhaps the women maybe caused to expose her Awrah this is because the beautician may seek to treat her whole body or most of it.

The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

لا يَنظُرُ الرَّجل أِلى عَوْرَةِ الرَّجل, و لا المَرْأَةُ أِلى عَوْرَةِ المَرْأةِ

“No man should look at another man’s ‘awrah, nor should a woman look at another woman’s ‘awrah”

Collected in the Saheeh of Imaam Muslim bin Al-Hajjaaj # 766. Narrated on the authority of Abi Sa’eed Al-Khudri

And perhaps it maybe a male beautician in which the prohibition and sin is far greater.

So stay far away from this oh Muslimaat. May Allah grant you all success with that. Accustom yourselves to staying in your homes and beware of resembling the disbelieving women because verily this leads to having amity (friendship, love, etc.) for the disbelieving women and love of resembling them inwardly. That is in relation to their belief.

Likewise, I advise you all to leave those lands that oppress its people and to have adherence upon this Haneef religion. And Allah is the one who grants success.

Al praises are due to the Lord of all existence.
