[E-book] Az-Zuhd by Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawzeeyah


“Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children, as the likeness of vegetation after rain, thereof the growth is pleasing to the tiller; afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow; then it becomes straw. But in the Hereafter (there is) a severe torment (for the disbelievers-evil doers,) and (there is) Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the believers good doers) whereas the life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment.”

{Suratul Hadeed: 20}

 

Many have defined the meaning of Zuhd. I heard Ibn Taymiyyah say about Zuhd and (Wara’a):

‘Zuhd is to leave alone those things which will not benefit you in the next life.’ ‘And Wara’a (piety) is to leave the things you fear might harm you in the next life.’

And this so far, has been (one of) the best explanations, of the meaning of Zuhd and Wara’a.

 

Sufiyaan al-Thauri said about Zuhd:

‘Zuhd is to have limited amount of expectations (very few hopes); It does ‘not’ mean eating poor or inadequate foods as many think, or wearing a cheap gown or cloak.’

[PDF]: A Glimpse at the Way Of the Companions


This is the first treatise in a series regarding the Methodology of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions (may Allaah The Most High be pleased with them). It is the Methodology that was implemented by the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and adhered to by the best of generations (the Companions), giving them success in this world and ultimate success in the Hereafter. The series is entitled Tasfiyah Wat Tarbiyah which are the two main instruments of this Prophetic Methodology that can be used to help us to remain firmly established upon the Deen of Islam.

 
This treatise was written by Shaykh Abdul-Qaadir in response to the numerous questions that were posed to him and the general confusion concerning this important matter. In compiling this treatise the Shaykh relied upon classical works, due to the importance of returning to the understanding of the early scholars in this Ummah.

 
The treatise has been translated in an attempt to remove the confusion surrounding this crucial subject, concerning the methodology adopted by the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions (radiyallaahu ’anhum), in establishing Islaam as a way of life.

 
Every Muslim desiring to return to Islaam in its true sense, must grasp what the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions were upon, in all aspects of life. Only then can we move further towards establishing Islaam as our way of life.

 

This treatise highlights the main principles governing the correct understanding of this topic following the way of the early scholars in clarifying and expounding the Prophetic Methodology.

 
The treatise has been abridged in order to remove some of unnecessary technical terms, and also wherever necessary, clarification of some terms and points have been included. A glossary has also been added to assist the reader.

[PDF] Rectifying false Notions on an Important Issue against Shaikh Muhammed bin Abdul Wahab


There is never a man who brings some goodness to this world but he has enemies among mankind and the jinn. Even the Prophets of Allaah were not safe from that.

The enmity of people was directed against the scholars in the past, especially the proponents of the true call (of Islam). They were met with intense hostility from the people. An example of that is Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him); some of those who were jealous of him regarded it as permissible to shed his blood, others accused him of being misguided and of going beyond the pale of Islam and becoming an apostate.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab was simply another of these wronged scholars who were falsely accused by people, in an attempt to cause trouble (fitnah). People’s only motives for doing that were jealousy and hatred, along with the fact that bid’ah was so firmly entrenched in their hearts, or they were ignorant and were blindly imitating the people of whims and desires.

[E-Book]: What you should do in the following situations? Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid


 

The Muslim may be faced with a number of emergency situations in his life, where he needs an immediate answer as to how he should act in that particular situation. In most cases, however, it is not possible to look for or ask about the appropriate Islamic rulings at that time.

 

This proves the importance of learning about Islam and knowing the rules of sharee‘ah, so that when a Muslim needs this information, he will have it at hand and will thus be able to save himself or his Muslim brother from doing something haraam or making a mistake. In so many cases, ignorance can lead to corruption of worship or – at the very least – acute embarrassment. It is unfortunate that an imaam may mistakenly stand up for a fifth rak‘ah, and there may be nobody in the congregation or the mosque who knows what the rulings of sharee‘ah say should be done in such a situation. Or a traveller who is intending to perform umrah may come to the airport at the last minute, and suddenly discover that he has forgotten his ihraam garments, but he has no time to do anything about it, and there is nobody among the Muslim in the airport who can tell him what he should do in this emergency. Or a man may come to the mosque on an occasion when the prayers have been joined together because of rain: the congregation is already praying ishaa‘ but he has not yet prayed maghrib, so he is confused as to what he should do. In such a situation the people may embark upon a debate based only on ignorance, and so confusion will reign in the mosques. In many individual and personal matters, ignorance may lead to embarrassment and even sin, especially when a person is in the position of having to make a decision and he does not have sufficient knowledge on which to base that decision.

 

People in this world have prepared information telling people how to behave in emergency situations: what to do if fire breaks out, if someone is drowning, if a scorpion bites, if there is a car accident, if someone is bleeding or has broken a bone… All of these first aid procedures are well known; they teach them to people and hold special courses. How much more important is it, then, that those who are concerned with the Hereafter should learn and teach the rules of this religion!

The Advice [to Indian Salafis]: Reviewed by Shaykh Wasiyyullaah ‘Abbaas


The three fundamental principle

The Advice

 

 

This advice is aimed mainly at two or three categories of people.

 

Firstly, this is an advice to those who are already affected by this fitnah, so that it may serve as a mirror to see their own faults, and they may then seek to rectify them by Allaah’s permission. We believe that there could be amongst them those who are sincere, but have fallen prey to this fitnah out of ignorance, so we hope for them that they are guided.

 

And as for those who choose to be stubborn and reject sincere advice, we warn them to fear Allaah and His punishment, as they are playing with the deen of Allaah.

 

 

Finally, this is also an advice to Ahlus Sunnah in general so that they can be aware of this danger that lurks within them; so that they can know the signs by which the people of this deviation can be recognized, and save themselves and others from falling into this fitnah, by Allaah’s aid an permission.

 
Important: The intent of this advice is to identify a problem/disease and to treat it in the best manner, and this is from having concern and mercy for one another. So let us look into our own selves and correct ourselves if required. And let us refrain from saying “so and so was intended by this advice”, as this kind of speech does not bring about benefit and promotes chaotic behavior.
