The first thing we will do on the day of Eid is to lower our gaze

It is reported on the authority of Al-Wakî’ b. Al-Jarrâh:

We went out one Eid with Sufyân Al-Thawrî and he said,

“The first thing we will do on this day of ours is to lower our gaze.”

Ibn Abî Al-Dunyâ, Kitâb Al-Wara’. article 66.

It is reported that Hassân b. Abî Sinân – Allâh have mercy on him – went out one Eid and when he returned home his wife said, “How many beautiful women have you looked at today?” After she kept asking him, he said, “Woe to you! I have looked at nothing but my toe from when I went out to when I returned to you.”

Ibn Abî Al-Dunyâ, Kitâb Al-Wara’. article 68.

Ibn Al-Qayyim on which is better: reciting Quran slowly with contemplation or faster in greater amount?

Translation and notes by Owais Al-Hāshimī
19 Ramaḍān 1437

Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawzīyah – Allāh have mercy on him – said while describing the way of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in reciting the Qurān:

People have differed as to which is best: tartīl (slower) recitation covering less (of the Qurān), or faster recitation with more covered; which of them is better? They had two opinions on this.

Travelling to disbelieving countries for football matches – Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

Translated by Owais Al-Hashimi حفظه الله

Question:

My son travels abroad to attend football (soccer) matches in the lands of the unbelievers; what is your advice for me and for him regarding this matter?

Shaykh Salih Fawzan:

[My advice] is that he is to have Taqwa of Allah and not to follow this game that has no benefit, rather it is harmful, and that he not travel for its sake to the lands of the unbelievers.

Firstly [football] is useless. and secondly, travelling to the lands of the unbelievers is not permitted except for a necessity, for medical treatment, to learn something special only they have and which we need, or for trade, this is alright.

What is the best way for women to give da’wah? – Shaykh al-Albaani

[40] Question: What is the best way for women to give da’wah?

Answer: I say to the women: “Remain in your homes.” [Surah Ahzaab: 33]

And you should not concern yourselves with da’wah. I reject the use of the word “da’wah” amongst the male youth by them making it seem like they are from the people of da’wah – as if the word da’wah has become the fashion of modern times. So every individual that knows something about the Religion becomes a Da’ee (caller to Islaam)! And this matter did not stop with the male youth until it was carried over to the female youth and housewives. And in many instances, they have begun to turn away from fulfilling the obligations of their households and their husbands and their children, turning away from these obligations towards something that is not obligatory upon them, such as establishing the da’wah.

The general rule concerning the woman is that she is to stay in her home. And it has not been legislated for her to leave it unless she has a dire need. This is based on the statement of the Prophet,sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam: “And (praying in) their homes is better for them”, i.e. than the (congregational) prayer in the masjid.”

Today we see a prevalent phenomenon amongst the women in that they go out often to the masjids in order to pray the congregational prayer, not to mention the Jumu’ah prayer. In spite of this, their homes are better for them – unless there is a masjid in which the Imaam is a scholar who teaches those attending some aspects from the sciences of the Religion. So in this case, the woman could go out to pray in the masjid in order to listen to the knowledge. There is nothing preventing her from that. As for the woman preoccupying herself with the da’wah (!), then let her sit in her home and read from the books that her husband or brother or other male relatives provide for her.

Furthermore, there is nothing preventing her from setting a day in which she calls the women to come to her house or she goes out to attend the house of one of them. That is better than a group of women going out (to her). One woman going out to a group of women is better for them than all of them going out to her. As for her moving about and traveling, perhaps traveling without a mahram, and she justifies that by claiming that she went out for the purpose of da’wah, then these are from the presentday innovations. And I do not specify the women only with that, rather, even some of the male youth speak excessively about the da’wah and yet they have very little knowledge.

Ramadhan vs World Cup – Shaykh Salih b. Fawzan Al-Fawzan

Translated by Abu Abdillah Owais Al-Hashimi حفظه الله
Source: http://www.alfawzan.af.org.sa/node/15245

Question to Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzan:

Could you give some advice to the young Muslims, including students of knowledge, who watch World Cup matches late into a third of the night; and in the month of Ramadan matches will be played during the time of Isha and Tarawih prayers?

His response:

Muslims must leave diversion and play, and turn to the worship of Allah ‘azza wa jall, and not waste their time following matches or other types of diversion and play, especially in the blessed month of Ramadan.

It is upon Muslims in general, and the youth in particular – because some of them are very fond of football matches and watching them; and this has no benefit, rather it has harms because it involves wasting time. How can a person waste his precious time and waste this great season of Ramadan watching matches? This is a great loss which cannot be replaced. So they must stop this and turn to the worship of Allah, especially during the month of Ramadan. A person should make good use of his precious time by spending it in the obedience of Allah and standing in prayer for Allah at night. This is what he has been told to do, and this is what will remain for the people and this is what they will find kept for them with Allah ‘azza wa jall as reward in the Hereafter.

[Inspirational] At the Doorstep of Knowledge – Hadith

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

At the Doorstep of Knowledge

 It is reported from ‘Abdullâh b. ‘Abbâs – Allâh be pleased with them – that he said:

After Allâh’s Messenger – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him – passed away, I said to a man from the Ansâr, “Come, let us ask [and learn from] the Prophet’s Companions, Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him, for they are many in number today.” He replied, “I am surprised at you Ibn ‘Abbâs – do you really think people need you when there are so many Companions of the Prophet – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him?” So he did not involve himself in this endeavor, but I busied myself asking [the Companions about issues]. If I heard of a hadîth being reported by a man, I would come to him and if he was taking his midday nap I would lay down my garment and lie outside waiting for him, with  the wind blowing dust in my face. The man would come out [for Dhuhr] and see me in that state, and he would exclaim, “O nephew of Allâh’s Messenger! What has brought you here? You should have sent for me and I would have come to you!” I would say, “Rather I should come to you [to seek knowledge].” I would then ask him about the hadîth I heard. The man [who I originally invited to seek knowledge with me] remained as he was, and when he saw how people would gather around me [to seek knowledge] he said, “For sure, this young man was more intelligent than me.” [Al-Dârimî, Al-Sunan Vol. 2 p129.]

Q/A on the topic of Eid, with Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

الشيخ صالح بن فوزان الفوزان

Question:

Respected Shaykh, may Allah give you success: on the days following Eid, some people organize gatherings for women where the simple hand drum (al-duff) is used and there is dancing and singing. [The women] say these are the days of Eid and it is allowed to use al-duff, dance and sing without using [other] musical instruments; how correct is this?

Answer:

Brother, the day of Eid is one day, not a number of days. The days of Eid Al-Ad-ha and Eid Al-Fitr are a one day for each. The Days of Tashriq that follow the day of Eid Al-Ad-ha are not days of Eid, they are not called Days of Eid; these are the Days of Tashriq. These people [being asked about] want to revive drums, musical instruments and singing, they call them the Days of Eid. This is a lie about the Shariah; this behaviour is not allowed not for men and not for women.

Audio link (Arabic):
http://www.alfawzan.ws/AlFawzan/sound…

Question:

May Allahs benevolence be upon you, respected Shaykh, the enquirer asks: In the tape shops there are tapes where there are recordings of al-duff being played accompanied by young women / teenage girls saying nashids. Teenage girls and women listen to these tapes on Eid with the excuse that al-duff is allowed on the Day of Eid. What is the ruling on this?

Answer:

The ruling is that this is not allowed. This [activity] teaches young women false frivolity and singing it spoils young Muslim women and makes them become silly. Accordingly, these tapes must be destroyed, they must be destroyed. Singing on Eid was not allowed by the Prophet Allahs praise and peace be upon him except for young girls; minors who were not legally liable for their actions. [They were] young girls, not females who were legally bound by Islamic law (i.e. those who had reached puberty). Women who are grown up and legally bound by the commandments of Islam are not permitted to sing or behave frivolously.

Audio link (Arabic):
http://www.alfawzan.ws/AlFawzan/sound…

Question:

May Allahs benevolence be upon you, respected Shaykh, this enquirer asks about a practice that has emerged in the mosques/places of prayer on Eid: the distribution of dates before Eid prayer, so that people can get the virtue (of practicing the Sunnah) of eating some dates [before Eid Al-Fitr prayer]. Is this action a Sunnah, or is it a novel introduction?

Answer:

This is the practice of some young Muslims Allah guide them. This was not done amongst the Salaf; we do not know that they used to distribute dates at the Eid prayer place (musalla). What is confirmed from Allahs Messenger praise and peace of Allah be upon him is that he used to eat before leaving home [on Eid Al-Fitr], he would eat a few dates before leaving his house. So, whoever wants to practice the Sunnah should eat when he leaves his house not at the mosque or prayer place.

Audio link (Arabic):
http://www.alfawzan.ws/AlFawzan/sound…

Question:

Respected Shaykh, what is the ruling on giving presents at Eid?

Answer:

There is no harm in this. Spending more and giving more food, drink, gifts and visiting others, all of this is desired, because it involves keeping in touch with Muslims and brings about love between them. So, there is no harm in [giving gifts].

[Must Read] Two Days and Two Nights like no others

It is reported that Anas b. Mâlik – Allâh be pleased with him – said:

There are two days and two nights the likes of which no one has ever heard of before:

the Day on which you will receive the news about Allâh the Exalted: whether you will receive His punishment or His mercy,

the Day you will be given your book (of deeds): either in your right hand or your left,

that [first] night you will spend alone in your grave, a night like no other you have spent, and

that night on the morning of which will be the Day of Resurrection, after which there will be no more night.

Shaytan’s Three Angles of Attack – Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawzīyah, Al-Fawaa`id

Shaytan’s Three Angles of Attack
#85 -Owais Al-Hashimi (hafidhahullaah)
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawzīyah, Al-Fawā`id 1:277

Every intelligent person knows that Shaytān has no way to [attack] him except from three angles:

1. Extravagance. [A person] takes more than he needs, so it becomes superfluous; and [surplus] is the share of Shaytān and his point of entry to the heart. The way to avoid this is to avoid giving the self all it wants of food, sleep, pleasure and comfort. When you close this door, you will be safe from the enemy entering through it.

2. Heedlessness. One who remembers [Allāh] is in an impenetrable fortress. If he becomes forgetful and heedless, he opens the gates of the fortress, and the enemy enters, after which it is difficult to expel him.

3. Affectation of what does not concern oneself, or what one is not qualified to involve oneself in.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The brother began with Khutbatul Hajjah

Allaah subhanahu wa ta’ala mentioned the success -the true meaning of success and being successful is the one who is saved from the fire due to his own sins and his own disobedience of Allah and is admitted into al Jannah where Allah subhanawa ta’ala said (what means):

“Whoever is saved from the fire and admitted into paradise, then he is the one who has been successful.. “

Allah Subhana wa ta’ala many places in the Quran told us His promise that He will admit the believing men and women into Jannah, into paradise, so He linked success and admission into paradise, with having correct iman, faith and belief, which includes practising the religion of Islam and putting it to practice. All those that a person’s faith necessitates or requires of him or her.

So Allah subhana wa ta’ala said in Surah At Taubah:“Allah has promised to believers – men and women – Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein [forever], and beautiful mansions in Gardens of everlasting bliss. But the greatest bliss is the Pleasure of Allah. That is the supreme success”. (Surah At-Tauba 9:72)

Allah subhana wa ta’ala said (what means)

Allaah may admit the believing men and the believing women to Gardens beneath under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise), to abide therein forever, and to expiate from them their sins, and that is with Allâh, a supreme success. (Al-Fath 48:5)

……Secondly, it is a call for us to realize that having faith, have iman in Allah subhana wa ta’ala necessitates certain things. If a person has true Iman, then that must bring about certain actions. It must bring about certain change in the person’s behaviour and lifestyle. So when he or she acts, they do things that are in accordance with the obedience of Allaah Subhanahu wa ta’ala. And that Iman (faith) that a person has -that belief about the truth, also makes a person or should make a person stay away from the things that Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala has told him to stay away from.

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala describes the qualities of the believers. And in this respect as a rule, we know that when the believers are described in the Qu’ran, this includes both men and women unless there is a proof, there is specific proof, either in the context of the verses or a Hadith of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wa salam or through the Sunnah of the Prophet which explains the Qu’ran. To show that this particular command or prohibition is specific to the males, men of his ummah or to the women of his ummah. Otherwise the general rule is when the believers are addressed “O you who believe..” and when believers or righteous people are described, this refers to both men and women. So in terms of the obligation upon us all to believe in Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and believe in the hereafter to accept the truth and then act upon the truth, to put it into practice in our lives – all of this ummah, all of the believers, men and women, are the same in the regard. And they have the same obligation and the same promise of success and the same promise of being forgiven for their shortcomings and their mistakes and being admitted into paradise and being saved from the fire.

However, in other places in the Qu’ran, there is also an emphasis given with regard to men and with regards to women. In some places, believing men and women are mentioned alongside each other in the verses of the Qu’ran. And in some places,there is specific address and a specific description about women believers, righteous women, women who have been commanded to d ocertain things, to put certain or obey Allah subhana wa ta’ala in a specific way or to stay away from some specific thing. We can say that all of those are descriptions and aspects of what make as successful Muslim woman.

So an example of the general description of the believers that should be true of the believing woman as well as the man, is the statement of Allah subhana wa ta’ala in surah Muminoon. Where He (what means)

” Indeed successful are the believers, those who are humble and submissive in their prayers and those who turn away from ill and false speech. And those who pay the Zakat. And those who guard their chastity.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) (Al-Mu’minon 1-5)

So for a person who want success in this life and the hereafter, he or she should consider the description and the attributes, the qualities that are mentioned in such verses. Again, success has been linked to a person being a believer, and then in this passage, these verses of the noble Qu’ran some of the qualities of the believers are mentioned. The first of them is khushoo in one’s salah. And al khushoo is to be humble and submissive and low in front of Allah subhana wa ta’ala -in one’s heart and physically in the movement and in the settling of the limbs in the prayer. This is really the soul and heart of a person’s salah, that when a person stands in front of Allah subhana wa ta’ala to pray, to establish the salah, that person standing humbly and submissively in his heart and in his body such that she thinks or she thinks about Allah subhana wa ta’ala and about the remembrances that she is saying, what she is remembering Allah subhana wa ta’ala with. And she thinks about the meaning of whats he is reciting which makes her turn to Allah subhana wa ta’ala and perform this act of worship according to, in the best way and hoping to gain forgiveness from Allah subhana wa ta’ala to get the reward of Allah subhana wa ta’ala through the worshipping Him. This should cause the person to pray with khushoo in one’s limbs, to be still and humble of Allah, to concentrate on remembering Allah subhana wa ta’ala in the prayer. And this is the thing that really gives a benefit to a person and is the real purpose of the prayer, to remember Allah subhana wa ta’ala, and to submit the limbs and to submit ones body, to submit your whole self to Allah subhana wa ta’ala.

……..And if we want to generalize,because sometimes it’s true or it’s beneficial to generalize,one of the things that many women are being tried with is false speech. Speech that is that involves disobeying Allah subhana wa ta’ala, and displeasing Allahazza wa jal. So back biting,slandering others, speaking indecently, speaking to males,speaking to men in an inappropriate manner, speaking and arguing and fighting with each other and cursing one another or saying things which involve belittling your fellow sisters. These things have to be considered because they draw you away from Allah subhana wa ta’ala and they draw a person closer to jahannam. These things are forbidden and one of the worse some of the worst sins are related to the sins of one’s speech.

These are also some of the qualities that Allah subhana wa ta’ala described of successful women. They have those same fundamental qualities that men are supposed to have to be successful, that women are supposed to also have, we are the same in this regard. Submitting to Allah subhana wa ta’ala,believing in correct iman and correct aqeedah, correct belief system, correct attitude,believing in all those things that we’re supposed to believe in and not rejecting any of it. To have iman, To be devout, obedient to Allah subhana wa ta’ala, to have this qunoot,, to put one self to the obedience to to Allah subhana wa ta’ala, to be truthful in one’s belief, in one’s speech, and in one’s actions. This is one of the most important qualities, and actually in reality, the quality of truthfulness is not just to speak the truth. This is one important aspect of being truthful. Truthfulness, begins by being true in one’s heart and in one’s actions. Meaning that when a person obeys Allah subhana wa ta’ala openly, they really mean it and they do it sincerely from the heart. Truthfulness in reality is to be the same on the inside a as you are on the outside. Truthfulness is to be the same on the inside as you are on the out side. This is the reality of truthfulness and one part of that and a very important part of that is to always say the truth. When you speak, speak the truth.Those who are patient from the men and the women. Assabr – patience, is to remain steadfast in obeying Allah subhana wa ta’ala, believing and trusting in the reward from Allah subhana wa ta’ala and that Allah will reward you and take care of you if you remain obedient to him. Thats the reality of patience.

Assabr has three aspects to it. The first is to steadfast,consistent, upon the obedience of Allah subhana wa ta’ala, to remain obedient to Allah subhana wa ta’ala so that no matter what hardships you have or challenges you have, you don’t allow yourself to do something or to leave obeying Allah subhana wa ta’ala. You stay obedient to Allah subhana wa ta’ala. When you pray, you remain someone who prays regularly. When you obey Allah subhana wa ta’ala in a certain way, you ensure you try to make sure that you’re always like this. You remain steadfast on this. This is the first pillar of patience to remain obedient to Allah subhana wa ta’ala.

The second thing is to remain patient and staying away from sins and staying away from the disobedience of Allah subhana wa ta’ala. So when you leave and you abandon a sin for Allah subhana wa ta’ala, to be saved from Allah anger and to be rewarded you stay like this. You maintain that and you don’t give up you don’t allow yourself to fall back into disobeying Allah subhana wa ta’ala. And the third pillar of sabr, or patience, is to remain steadfast and be patient in the face of what afflicts or what faces you, what Allah has written to affect you in your life. Trouble, danger,,stress, the loss of wealth, the loss of life, the loss of loved ones, those calamities and problems that may affect a person as a test from Allah subhana wa ta’ala. The third pillar of sabr is to remain patient of obedience. This is also a very important quality of the successful woman. This is a quality of the successful man,the believing man or the believing woman………”
