The Importance Of Working On Your Relationship With Allaah

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

Aboo Haazim said:

“A servant does not cease to correct his relationship with Allaah, except that Allaah rectifies his relationship with the people. And a slave dos not cease to ruin his relationship with Allaah, except that his dealings with the people will be destroyed.

To work for once face is easier than working for multiple faces. Indeed if you worked for Allaah alone, all other faces will be turned towards you, and if you corrupt your relationship with Allaah, all other faces will look down upon you.”

[Siyar A’laam An-Nubulaa, 6/1000]

Focusing On Righteous Deeds

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags on June 20, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

Abu Dharda sent a letter to his friend Salman Al-Farsi saying, “Come to the Holy Land.”

Salman responded with, “The Holy Land does not make anyone holy. It is your deeds that make you holy.”

“We Will Not Say To You As The Jews Said To Moses”

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , on June 20, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

When the Prophet (saw) arrived on the battlefield of Badr, he consulted his Companions. Abu Bakr spoke first, then ‘Umar, and then Al-Miqdaad Ibn ‘Amr spoke. Al-Miqdaad said:

“O Messenger of Allaah (saw) go ahead and do whatever you feel is best. We will not say to you as the Israelites said to Moses: “Go with your Lord and fight the enemy while we stay behind!” What we will say is: “Go with your Lord and fight the enemy and we will fight alongside you.” By Him who has sent you with the message of truth, if you ask us to march with you to Bark Al-Ghimaad (a remote place in Yemen), we will fight with you anyone who stands in your way until you have go there.”

The Prophet (saw) thanked him then prayed for him.

Posted in Shiasm Exposed with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

As-Sadooq mentioned in “Al-E’lal” a narration that Abu Abdullaah said to Abu dawud Ibn Farqad, “What do you say about the Naasibi (a term used to describe a Sunni Muslim)?” 

He said, “His blood is lawful for us to shed. If you can kil him by pushing a wall over so that he is crushed or by drowning him in a sea, so that no witnesses are there, then do so.

Abu dawud Ibn Farqad then asked him about his wealth and he said, “Take it if you can.

The Punishment of Not Marching Forth

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , on June 13, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

Allaah says:

“Unless you go forth, He will punish you with a severe punishment, and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allaah has power over all things.” [9:39]

Ibn Al-‘Arabi said, commenting on this verse:

“The severe punishment in this world is through the occupation of the enemy, and in the hereafter by the Fire.” [See Tafseer Al-Qurtubi, 8/142]

Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam’s Advice To Mothers

Posted in Miscellaneous, Parenting on June 10, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam said:

“Bring up your children to be brave and courageous. Let your houses be places for lions, not chicken farms in which your sons will be fed then slaughtered by tyrants like sheep.

Instil in the hearts of your sons the love for Jihaad and the love of battlefields. Share the problems of the Muslim Ummah. Live one day a week like refugees and Mujaahideen live. They live on dry bread and tea.”


Sisters’ Only Jihaad

Posted in Sisters Base with tags , , , , , , , on June 5, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

When asked about women’s jihaad, many people quote the hadeeth about hajj being a woman’s jihaad, but rarely do we see the following hadeeth being quoted.

A woman came to the Prophet (saw) and said:

“O Messenger of Allaah! I come to you on behalf of a group of women. For the men is al-jihaad and the spoils of war. What is for us?”

So the Prophet (saw) said:

“Convey to those whom you meet from the women that (a) obedience to the husband and (b) respect for his status is equal to that, and how few from amongst you actually does it.”

[Al-Bazzaar & Tabaraanee]

Studying in The West

Posted in Brothers Base, Killing The Fitna, Sisters Base with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam said:

“I declare it forbidden for the youth to study in the West, except if they are married. Hear it from me; it is forbidden for a youth to study in the west, unless he is married. Relay on my behalf, even if it is one fatwa: it is not allowed, not allowed, not allowed. How can one protect himself? It is impossible to protect oneself, except through marriage.

It is impossible, impossible, impossible for the unmarried person to live there, unless he is abnormal. If he is abnormal, then he might be able to live there. As for the normal human being, then how my brother? Sex is available like water, and it is allowed, according to the law, in the street, everywhere!”

[Fee Dhilaal Soorah At-Tawbah, p.12]

The Wisdom Behind I’tikaaf, By Ibn Al-Qayyim

Posted in Ramadhaan with tags , , , , on June 1, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

Ibn Al-Qayyim said:

“Its purpose and spirit is for the heart to turn fully and solely towards Allaah (swt), living in privacy with Him, ceasing to be involved with the created things, and getting involved with Him alone instead. With this, His remembrance, love and devotion replace the worries and thoughts of the heart, overtaking their place in it, and becoming its only concern.

Then the thoughts become busy with remembering Him and brings one closer to Him. One’s pleasure is then attained by His company rather than that of the creatures, thereby preparing himself for the day of solitude in the graves, when he will have no company or delight except Him. This is the greatest purpose of i’tikaaf.”

[Zaad Al-Ma’aad, 2/86-87]
