[E-book] The Purpose of Creation by Majed S. Al-Rassi


Wise individuals know that they exist for a purpose and a final destination, whether or not they are aware of the exact nature of that destination. Wise individuals also understand that if they do not know where they are going, they will never strive to reach there. This little book has shed some light on the following:

 Why were human beings created?
 What is their final destination?
 How can they reach that destination ‘safely’?

[E-book] Fatawa of Shaikh Al-Albaanee (rahimahullah)


THE SCHOLARS’ PRAISE FOR IMAAM AL-ALBAANEE

Shaikh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez Al-Hudda said:
“The Shaikh, the great scholar, the ocean (of knowledge), Muhammad Al-Ameen Ash-Shanqeetee (rahimahullaah) – the one whom no knowledge of the Science of Tafseer and the Arabic Language was comparable to during his lifetime – used to respect Shaikh Al-Albaanee so remarkably to the point that when he would see him passing by, and he was giving his class in the masjid of Madeenah, he would stop his class to stand and give Salaam to him out of respect for him.”
The great scholar, the teacher, Muhibb-ud-Deen Al-Khateeb said:
“And from the callers to the Sunnah who devoted their lives to reviving it was our brother Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Nooh Najaatee Al-Albaanee “

 
The great scholar Muhammad Haamid Al-Fiqee (rahimahullaah) said:
“…the brother, the Salafee, the Scholar, Shaikh Naasir-ud Deen.”
The former Muftee of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Ibraheem Aali Shaikh (rahimahullaah) said:

“And he is the upholder of the Sunnah, a supporter of the truth and an opposition to the people of falsehood.”

 
During his lifetime, the father, the Shaikh, ‘Abd-ul-‘Azeez Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) said:
“I have not seen anyone under the surface of the sky with more knowledge of the Hadeeth in our current time than the likes of the great scholar, Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee.” And he (rahimahullaah) was asked about the hadeeth of the Prophet, sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam:
“Indeed Allaah raises up from this ummah at the beginning of every century someone who will revive it for them (i.e. a mujaddid).” So he was asked who is the mujaddid of this century? He replied: “Shaikh Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee. He is the mujaddid in my opinion and Allaah knows best.”

 

 

Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said:
“From what I came to know of the Shaikh through my gatherings with him – and they were few – was that he was very serious about acting upon the Sunnah and fighting against the innovations, whether in matters of Belief or in matters of actions. As for through my readings of his written works, then I have come to know that about him, and also that he possesses a vast amount of knowledge of Hadeeth, in terms of reporting them and investigating them. And Allaah has benefited many people through what he has written such as about knowledge, aspects of the Manhaj, and concern for the science of Hadeeth. And this is an enormous result for the Muslims, all praise be to Allaah.”

 
The great scholar, Shaikh Zaid Ibn Fayaad (rahimahullaah) said about him: “Indeed, Shaikh Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee is from the most prominent and distinguished personalities of this era. He had great concern for the Hadeeth – its paths of transmission, its reporters and its level of authenticity or weakness. This is an honorable task from the best things on which hours can be spent and efforts can be made. And he was like any other of the scholars – those who are correct in some matters and err in other matters. However, his devotion to this great science (i.e. of Hadeeth) is from that which requires that his prestige be acknowledged and his endeavors in it be appreciated.”

 
Shaikh Muqbil Ibn Haadee Al-Waadi’ee (rahimahullaah) said:
“Indeed, there cannot be found an equal in terms of the knowledge of hadeeth like that of Shaikh  Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee. Allaah has given benefit through his knowledge and his books several times more than what has been accomplished by those zealots for Islaam upon the ignorance of those who organize reformation and revolutionary movements. And that which I sincerely believe in and which I owe my thanks to Allaah for is that the Shaikh Muhammad Naasir-ud- Deen Al-Albaanee is from the mujaddideen (reformers/revivers) whom the Prophet, sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, spoke the truth of when he said: ’Indeed Allaah raises up from this ummah at the beginning of every century someone who will revive it for them (i.e. a mujaddid).’

Reported by Abu Dawood and authenticated by Al-‘Iraaqee and others.”

[PDF] Errors and Contradictions in the Bible


Today’s Bible when examined in the light of modern knowledge and science stands exposed to criticism. Why? Because there are so many flat contradictions, improbabilities and incompatibilities in its statements.

Certain passages of Bible are un-reliable. Others are whimsical where the element of truth is missing. There are other passages that are of fictitious nature. Still further there are events, which are either suppressed, or camouflaged or twisted to give another shade of meaning. At places there are two descriptions of an event contradicting each other.

 
At times they have used their own imagination to bring forward a certain point of view. They have put their words in the mouth of Jesus and they have made him say what various authors of Bible had liked him to say. Further there is a mountain of verbiage in the Bible.

 
Scholars say that today perhaps only twenty percent of Bible writing is Divine Related. The rest is all human writing. The difference is obvious. With the passage of time new versions of Bible keep Corning in and the older texts continue to undergo more and more distortions.

 
There are many versions of Bible of both Catholics and Protestants having their own 73 or 66 books respectively. There are- about seven hundred Bible versions and all are on display in London Museum. There is King’s James Version, Revised Standard Version, New International Version and American Standard Version etc. Today’s Bible remains no more the Word of GOD. It was written and rewritten in bits and pieces several times over a period of Last 3300 years and hence there is plenty of plagiarism, subtractions and additions as well. This we will see. We will take Testament ONE first and then we will take Testament TWO.

[PDF] Why I ask people to become Muslims: Yahya George Maxwell


Many people have asked me, to tell them how I became a Muslim, and the truth is, I really didn’t know. I know now that Allah gave me mercy and let me become a Muslim.
About three years after I became Muslim, I received a phone call from my father telling me my mother was dying from cancer. I was told that if I wanted to see her before she dies, I should hurry. Unfortunately, she died before I got there.
I made a decision not to tell my family that I have become Muslim until I learn enough about Islam to explain it to them. I have regretted ever since that my mother died before I could talk to her. My father however is a different story.

When my father picked me up, I told him I had become Muslim. He had a look on his face like he wasn’t happy; then, he asked me: “Why?” I don’t know why I said what I said then; I told him it was his fault. He looked at me and said: “My fault?!” I said: ‘Yes, it’s your fault’, and he asked: ‘How is it my fault?’
I began to explain: ‘When I was a child, you use to tell me not to listen to other people, and to make my own choices; not to look at the color of peoples’ skin; not to care how much money they have, to judge people for what they do, not for what they say. So, that’s what I did. Nobody asked me to become a Muslim; nobody gave me any books, I studied the religion on my own, and I found it to be the Truth, and it’s your fault!’ He said: ‘Yes it’s my fault’.

[PDF] Where is the “Christ” in “Christianity”?


Religious scholars have long attributed the tenets of Christian faith more to Paul’s teachings than to those of Jesus. But as much as I would like to jump into that subject, I think it best to back up and take a quick, speculative look at the Old Testament.

 
The Old Testament teaches that Jacob wrestled with God. In fact, the Old Testament records that Jacob not only wrestled with God, but that Jacob prevailed (Genesis 32:24-30). Now, bear in mind, we’re talking about a tiny blob of protoplasm wrestling the Creator of a universe 240,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles in diameter, containing over a billion galaxies of which ours—the Milky Way Galaxy—is just one (and a small one, at that), and prevailing? I’m sorry, but someone was a couple pages short of a codex when they scribed that passage. The point is, however, that this passage leaves us in a quandary.

 
We either have to question the Jewish concept of God or accept their explanation that “God” does not mean “God” in the above verses, but rather it means either an angel or a man (which, in essence, means the Old Testament is not to be trusted).
