The Affliction of The So-Called ‘Iraqi Caliphate of ISIS – Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin Al-’Abbaad

  Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin Al-‘Abbaad (may Allaah preserve him) said: All praise is for Allaah alone; and may Allaah extol and grant peace and security upon the one after whom there is no Prophet – our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and his companions – as for what follows: For indeed; a number of years ago in ‘Iraq there came into being a group which branded itself as: The Islamic State of ‘Iraq and Shaam – subsequently its mention became known by four letters – these being the initial letters by which this so-called State is referred; and so it is called: ISIS. Indeed, there was alternation amongst its leadership as was mentioned by some of those that followed its occurrences and its incidents, by way of a number (of people) to whom any one of them can be referred to as ‘Aboo so and so – such and such’ or: ‘Aboo so and so the son of such and such’; a kunyah attached to an ascription to a country or tribe – as is the trait of the unknown indistinguishable ones who go by kunyahs and ascriptions. After a period of time into the war which occurred in Syria … Continue reading

Ibn Al-Qayyim: A Person’s Steadiness Upon the Straight Path In This Life Will Determine His Movement Along The Bridge in The Hereafter

 الحمد لله رب العالمين، والصلاة والسلام على أشرف الأنبياء والمرسلين نبينا محمد، وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين. أما بعد   Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:   So whoever is guided in this abode to Allaah’s straight path which He sent His Messengers with and upon which He revealed His Books, then he will be guided over there to the straight path (i.e. bridge) which will lead to Paradise – and His abode of reward. Thus; on the basis of the steadiness of the step of the servant upon this path which Allaah has set up for His servants in this abode – likewise will be his steadiness upon the path (bridge) which is set up over the main part of the Hellfire. On the basis of his movement along this path will determine his movement along that path. So from them will be those who will pass it like a lightening flash, and from them are those that will pass like the blink of an eye. Whilst others will pass like the wind, yet others will pass like the passing of riding animals, whilst some will pass running a jog. From them will be those that will walk at pace, and there … Continue reading

Noteworthy Speech From Ibn Taymiyyah On The Harms Throughout History in Rebelling Against the Rulers

 الحمد لله رب العالمين، والصلاة والسلام على أشرف الأنبياء والمرسلين نبينا محمد، وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين. أما بعد   Shaikh ul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said: So in general, Ahul us Sunnah (the people of the Sunnah) expend their efforts in obedience to Allaah and His Messenger in accordance to ability. This is just as Allah The Most High has said:  {فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ} ((So fear Allaah as much as you are able)) (At-Taghaabun: 16)   Likewise the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: ((If I command you with an affair, then perform it as much as you are able))[1]   They know that Allaah, The Most High sent Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) with the harmonious welfare of the servants in means of subsistence as well as for The Hereafter. He ordered enjoining rectification and prohibited corruption, thus if an action contains in it rectification as well as corruption then they give precedence to the favourable of the two. Yet if the rectification of it is more than the corruption of it, then they give precedence of carrying it out. Whilst if the corruption within it is greater than the rectification then they give precedence to its abandonment. … Continue reading

Important Words By Shaikh ‘Uthaimeen On Dealing With The Hardships Which Afflict This Ummah

الحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام على أشرف الأنبياء والمرسلين نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه ومن تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين. وبعد؛   Shaikh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said during his discussion of the hadeeth reported by Al-Bukhaaree (no.3612) in which there occurs from Khabbaab bin Al-Arat (radhiyallaahu ‘anhu) who said: We complained to the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) whilst he was reclining against a cloak covering of his in the shade of the Ka’bah,[1] so we said: “will you not seek aid for us, will you not call upon Allaah for us?” so he said:   ((There was amongst those that came before you a man who was seized, a pit was dug for him in the ground and he was placed in it. Then a saw was brought and placed upon his head and he was sawed in two halves. And with an iron comb his flesh was combed and removed from his bones; and that did not obstruct him from his religion. By Allaah; Allaah will complete this affair – until a rider will be able to proceed from San’aa to Hadramout and will not fear any one except Allaah or the wolf … Continue reading

Shaikh Al-Fawzaan On How To Deal With Those Who Falsely Encourage The Youth To Partake in Jihaad

الحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام على أشرف الأنبياء والمرسلين نبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه ومن تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين. وبعد   Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) was asked: Q: If we are aware of those who encourage the youth upon Jihaad and give them funding without the permission of the Ruler, should the authorities be notified of the like of this individual? What is your advice for him and his like? The Shaikh responded: “Firstly he should be advised; if he complies and so abstains from this type of thing then Alhamdulillaah (all praise is for Allaah). If he does not comply; then he should be reported to those in authority in order to seize him so that he does not cause harm to the Muslims and cause harm to the children of the Muslims. This individual – he sends the children of the Muslims off to go and do battle and to destruction – without there being any benefit; whilst he himself remains here seated. How strange that some of them give sermons and are zealous and encourage and send forth the children of the Muslims whilst he himself remains seated in his home eating and drinking, despite the … Continue reading

A message from Abu Khadeejah to donate to the Da’wah Projects

In the name of Allāh, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy. From: Abu Khadeejah Abdul-Wāhid. To: My brothers and sisters from Ahlus-Sunnah in the West. As-salāmu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuh. Introduction: I pray you are well and in strength of īmān, may Allāh preserve you upon the Sunnah. As you are aware that this is the blessed month of Ramadaan wherein Allaah revealed the Qur’aan to the noble Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam). It is the month of fasting, night prayer, reciting Qur’aan and giving in charity. The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam) was the most generous of creation, yet in the month of Ramadaan he was even more generous. So let us follow the Messenger Muhammad (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam) in his generosity this month and hope for the reward from Allaah. Salafi Publications is possibly the earliest of all the Salafi organisations in the West. Since our inception in 1996, we have expanded beyond expectations. From printing leaflets and copying audio tapes in the front room of a house, we find ourselves nearly 20 years later with a bookstore, an online bookstore, numerous websites, two mosques and schools. As the da’wah has expanded into schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, prisons, town and city centres, thousands … Continue reading
