From the Why’s and How’s of Fighting Bidʿah

The great scholar, Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ Al-ʿUthaimīn, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

From being sincere in giving the Messenger ﷺ his rights is that you wage war against the people of innovation in the same way they wage war against the Sunnah. So if they fight [the Sunnah] with speech, then [fight innovation] with speech, and if they fight with action, then [fight] with action.

If a Person Keeps Falling into a Sin He Had Repented From

Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

It is not allowed for a Muslim, if he were to repent and then afterwards go back [to committing the sin], to persist [on that sin]; rather, he [must] repent, even if he were to go back [to that sin] a hundred times in a day.

Allāh Raises Those Who Rectify Their Hidden Affairs

Ibn Al-Jawzi, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

By Allāh, I have seen one who is abundant in praying, fasting much, often staying silent, [one who] shows humility in himself and in his dress. Yet, the hearts [of people] turn away from him, and his status amongst them is not all that!

And I have seen one who attires himself in luxurious clothes, does not have a lot of voluntary acts [of worship], nor does he make a show of humility, yet the hearts go one after the other in feeling love for him.

So I reflected on the cause [of this], and then I realised it was what people keep hidden from others [that Allāh knows].

The Strong Believer’s on ʿĪd: Between Fear and Joy

Shaikh Muhammad Bazmoul, may Allāh protect him, said:

A comment I liked:

The strong believer is the one who combines sadness and joy, so his his heart feels fear that Allāh [might] not accept the deeds he sent forward, while his outward dealings are of joy for that which Allāh has bestowed upon us, us Muslims, with ʿĪd.

So Allāh akbar [Allāh is the greatest], Allāh akbar, Allāh akbar, and lillāhil ḥamd [to Him alone is due all praise and thanks].

Let the Jews know that there is wide scope in our religion.

Treating Your Brothers from Ahl al-Sunnah with Enmity

Shaikh Fawāz Al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him, said:

The great scholar Muqbil Al-Wādiʿī, may Allāh the All-High have mercy on him, said:

Whoever treats his brothers [from] the People of the Sunnah with enmity will ever remain in reversals and setbacks.

So when they turned away from the truth, Allāh turned their hearts away from the truth. [From Al-Ṣaff: 5, English meaning]

When a Sunni Gets Cold Treatment from Some of Ahl al-Sunnah

The great scholar ʿUbaid Al-Jābirī, may Allāh protect him, said:

The Sunnī, even if some of the People of the Sunnah were to behave coldly with him, [still] loves them, defends them, calls [upon Allāh] for them, calls [others] to them, and connects people to them.

He does not part company with them, even if there were something of coldness between him and some of the People of the Sunnah, and something of estrangement, because that which brings them together is the pure religion of Islām. They came together for Allāh’s sake, and they love that, just as they have come together for Allāh’s sake, they break apart for Him.

As for the innovator, he is not upon that. He shows open enmity against the People of the Sunnah and those who are in alliance with them, makes his hatred and aversion to them apparent, digs into their position and status, and strives to separate people from them.

Majmuʿ Al-Rasāʾil Al-Jābiriyyah, “Al-Majmuʿah Al-Ūlá, p. 212, as quoted by the Shaikh Al-ʿAllāmah ʿUbaid Al-Jābirī Channel on Telegram: 6 Nov 2015.

A Mother’s Huge Right to Good Treatment

Shaikh Ibn Bāz, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

…Mothers have a huge right, and doing good to them [and obeying them] is an [Islāmic] obligation; doing good to them is [a] greater [act] than doing good to fathers.

The Prophet ﷺ, when he was asked [by someone], “…O Messenger of Allāh, whom should I do good to?” said, “Your mother.” [The person] said, “Then whom?” He said, “Your mother.” [The person] said, “Then whom?” He said, “Your mother.” [The person] said, “Then whom?” He said, “Your father.”

So she gets three-fourths [of good treatment], and he gets a fourth.

Is It Allowed to Ask Allāh to Have Mercy upon People of Bidʿah?

Shaikh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh protect him, said:

As for asking Allāh to have mercy upon people of innovation [by saying raḥimahullah–may Allāh have mercy on him–and the like], then indeed, it is permissible to ask Allāh to have mercy on them.

This is something the Righteous Predecessors were upon, and from them was Aḥmad ibn Ḥanbal. Texts from the Book of Allāh, All-Great is He and All-High, and from the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ are evidence for that.

The one who contests this is ignorant and astray.

May Allāh increase in His praises for our Prophet Muḥammad, his family, and his companions; and may He protect them from every harmful thing.
