Recommendation to fast Taasoo’a’ with ‘Ashoora’

Praise be to Allaah.

‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fasted on the day of ‘Ashoora and told the people to fast, they said, “O Messenger of Allaah, this is a day that is venerated by the Jews and Christians.” The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Next year, if Allaah wills, we will fast on the ninth day.”But by the time the following year came, the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had passed away.
Narrated by Muslim, 1916.

Neither Slumber, Nor Sleep overtakes Allaah‏

Neither Slumber, Nor Sleep overtakes Allaah‏

In the name of Allah, the Most-Merciful, the All-Compassionate

In His Saying: { لا تأخُذُهُ سِنَةُُ وَلاَ نَوْمُُ} [Neither slumber, nor sleep overtakes Him,] Allaah did not say (what means): “He does not sleep,” instead He said: { لا تأخُذُهُ } (which means) “does not overtake Him” in order to comprise the sleep which overcomes and that arising by choice. If you say, “Does not sleep,” it would imply that He does not sleep by choice. However, Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, does not sleep neither by ghalabah (overcoming) nor by choice, because sleep is an imperfect attribute which contradicts both the perfection of the Self and the perfection in relation to others.

On Attending Gatherings Where Knowledge is Sought

On Attending Gatherings Where Knowledge is Sought
From Ibn al-Jawzee’s Talbees Iblees, p. 393

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate

“Satan has mislead the masses to believe that attending of religious discourses and raising a wail of woe are highly meritorious acts and the sole purpose of delivering these sermons. This is perhaps because the people have been told about the merits of listening to these discourses but they do not know that the end of these sermons is (supposed to be the) reformation of their own morals and rectitude of their behaviour. Nor do they appear to be aware that whatever they listen to in these lectures shall be cited as an evidence against them on the Doomsday.

al-Zahrawaan (the two bright Surahs)

al-Zahrawaan (the two bright Surahs)

Praise be to Allaah.

These two soorahs are al-Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan.

It was proven in a hadeeth narrated by Imaam Muslim (may Allaah have mercy on him) that Abu Umaamah al-Baahili said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: `Read the Qur’aan, for it will come on the Day of Resurrection to intercede for its companions [those who read it]. Read al-Zahrawaan (the two bright ones), al-Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan, for they will come on the Day of Resurrection like two clouds or like two shades or two flocks of birds spreading their wings, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Soorat al-Baqarah, for taking recourse to it is a blessing and giving it up is a cause of loss, and the magicians cannot confront it.`

The Indications of Beneficial Knowledge

The Indications of Beneficial Knowledge
Shaykh Husayn al-Awaaishah hafidhahullaah
Taken from ‘Adorning Knowledge with Actions’

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

Everything has its indications and signs. Indications that knowledge is beneficial are that it leads to fine character, good manners and praiseworthy attributes. In this regard it was said: “He whose knowledge doesn’t cause him to weep, can be justifiably considered not to have been granted beneficial knowledge, since Allaah described the people of knowledge saying:

“Say believe in it (the Qur’aan) or do not believe. Verily! Those who were given knowledge before it, when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration. And they say: “Glory be to our Lord! Truly, the Promise of our Lord must be fulfilled.” And they fall down on their faces weeping and it adds to their humility.” [Al-Israa’ (17):107-109]

What will your excuse be tomorrow before Allah?

What will your excuse be tomorrow before Allah?
Sheikh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid

Praise be to Allah Who has created us to worship Him and has prescribed His religion and sharee’ah for us to adhere to, and Who accepts our excuses for our mistakes and for what we forget or are forced to do.

Allah has commanded us to adhere firmly to His religion, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Hold fast to that which We have given you” [al-Baqarah 2:63]. Religion is a serious matter that distinguishes truth from falsehood, it is not a thing for amusement [cf. Al-Taariq 86:13].

Many people do not take the matters of their religion seriously, and they offer feeble excuses. This is one of the signs of the Munaafiqoon (hypocrites), who take their religion for mockery and fun [cf. Al-Maa’idah 5:57], and when they
