The Sad State Of The Ummah


‘Abbaad Ibn ‘Abbaad Al-Khawwaas Ash-Shaamee (d. 114H) said:

“Fear Allaah and be weary of Him, for you are in an era wherein piety has become sparse and which has little in the way of humility. And the ones who carry the knowledge corrupt it because they love to be known for carrying the knowledge and they hate to be known for neglecting it.

So they speak with their desires concerning it, since they have entered errors into it and have twisted the words dealing with the truth that they have abandoned, and changed them [to support] the falsehood that they are doing. So their sins are such that forgiveness is not sought for them and their shortcomings and faults are not admitted.

How can the one who seeks the proof and the right path be guided when the guide himself is lost in confusion.”

[Ad-Daarimee, 1/160]

    as-Salaamu 3laykum,

    May Allaah preserve you and bless you for your efforts in spreading beneficial knowledge.

    I wanted to comment but this has nothing to do with the above article. However, I just don’t know how to get this message to you. It has to do with the background color of your page, perhaps its my aging eyes and due to my illness, but I really find it hard to stare at the page due because it hurts my eyes, thus preventing me from benefiting further. A few years ago when I used to listen to Dr. Saleh as Saleh ra7imahullaah on Paltalk, the admins would warn the students not to use bright fonts or sth similar because it harms others. I didn’t understand the logic why, but now I do understand.

    Jazakallaahu khayraa..

    • The page layout reminds me of our brother, Abu Sabaya.

      • It seems anyone who is working for Islam is being imprisoned.

        By the way brother AuthenticBase, what is happening with your terrorism case? Is it over? Sorry but I’m just curious, there have been no updates nor comments made by you since that happened.

        May Allaah send comfort to our brothers and sisters who are suffering at the hands of the evil doers, amin.
