Your good deeds are of no avail if you leave Islam

And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah , your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers."

[Qur’aan 39:65]

 

He who leaves Islaam will not benefit from the good deeds he did while he was a Muslim.

 

If a person dies while in the state of being a kaafir, he will abide in hell forever.

 

If a person had performed the obligatory Hajj of Islaam and then became an apostate and then became a Muslim again, then according to the Madhhab of al-Shaafi'i he does not have to perform the Hajj again while according to Maalik he has to perform the obligatory Hajj of Islaam again.

Ask protection against the evil of your Nafs

And I do not acquit myself. Indeed, the soul is a persistent enjoiner of evil, except those upon which my Lord has mercy. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."

[Qur’aan 12:53]

 

The Nafs orders you to do that which it desires even if the Pleasure of Allaah is not in it. Only those who Allaah has mercy on are saved from following the desires of their Nafs. Only they are able to keep themselves from following the evil their Nafs commands them to indulge in.

 

Make dua Allaah has mercy on you and keeps you safe from the evil of your Nafs.

 

Abu Rashid Al-Hubrani said:

"I came to 'Abdullah bin 'Amr and said to him: 'Report something to me that you heard from the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).' So he set forth before me a scroll and said: 'This is what the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) wrote for me.'" He said: "So I looked in it and found in it: 'Indeed, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, said: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me what to say at morning and afternoon."

He said: "O Abu Bakr, say: 'O Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, there is none worthy of worship except You, Lord of everything and its Owner, I seek refuge in You from the evil of my NAFS and from the evil of Shaitaan and his Shirk, or that I should do some evil to myself or bring it upon a Muslim

اللَّهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ رَبَّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَلِيكَهُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي وَمِنْ شَرِّ الشَّيْطَانِ وَشَرَكِهِ وَأَنْ أَقْتَرِفَ عَلَى نَفْسِي سُوءًا أَوْ أَجُرَّهُ إِلَى مُسْلِمٍ

On your face to hell

The ones who are gathered on their faces to Hell – those are the worst in position and farthest astray in [their] way.

[Qur’aan 25:34]

 

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A man said, "O Allah's Prophet! Will Allah gather the non-believers on their faces on the Day of Resurrection?" He said, "Will not the One Who made him walk on his feet in this world, be able to make him walk on his face on the Day of Resurrection?" (Qatada, a subnarrator, said: Yes, By the Power of Our Lord!)

[Sahih al-Bukhaari Hadith No. 4760]

 

Make dua Allaah gives you death as a Muslim and grants you Paradise.

Be careful who you take your Diin from

This is how careful they were when they narrated from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). And now you have shameless people narrating weak hadith without even telling their audience during their "dawah."

 

Modern sermon givers seem to enjoy arousing the emotions of their audience more than anything else. Some do it even at the expense of narrating weak and at times fabricated hadith.

 


Disgusting individuals. May Allah guide them or break their backs.

 


`Abd Allah bin al-Zubair said on the authority of the father:

I asked al-Zubair : What prevents you from narrating traditions from the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) as his Companions narrate from him? He said: By Allah I was very close to him. But I heard him (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: He who lies about me deliberately will certainly come to his abode in Hell.

[Sunan Abi Dawud]

 

It is also worthy to note at this point that of all the schools of thought the Hanafi school uses the most weak hadith to support their Fiqh stances. The Shaafi'i school, on the other hand, uses mostly only authentic hadith. Very rarely will you find them rely on a weak hadith.

 

Imaam al-Shaafi'i was a scholar of hadith as agreed upon by the scholars of hadith.

 

Abu Hanifah, in contrast, was deemed weak by the majority of scholars of hadith


Be careful who you take your Diin from.

Stop eating so much

Narrated `Aisha:

The family of (the Prophet) Muhammad never ate wheat-bread with meat for three consecutive days to their fill, till he met Allah.

[Sahih al-Bukhaari]

 

Imaam al-Shaafi'i said:

I have not eaten my fill for 16 years except once.

 

 

al-Hasan al-Basri said:

إذا أردت أن يصح جسمك ويقل نومك فأقلل من الأكل

 

If you want your body to be healthy and to sleep little, then eat little.

 

 

Sufyaan al-Thawri said:

Eat little so that you may be able to pray the night prayer

 

 

Ibn al-Jawzi said:

Eat little for eating too much is the cause of sleeping for long periods of time and wasting the night (by not walking up and praying)

وقلة الأكل فإن كثرة الأكل سبب النوم الطويل وضياع الليل

 

 

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Extra eating leads to many evils. It prompts the limbs to disobedience and keeps them from obedience (to Allaah)

فضول الطعام داع إلى أنواع كثيرة من الشر , فإنه يحرك الجوارح إلى المعاصي , ويثقلها عن الطاعات

 

 

The following is from the miracles of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). He informed us what would be.

All the routes of this haith are weak but when taken together, according to some scholars of hadith, they propel the hadith to the status of hasan.

سيكون رجال من أمتي يأكلون ألوان الطعام ويشربون ألوان الشراب ويلبسون ألوان الثياب ويتشدقون في الكلام فأولئك شرار أمتي

Their will be men from my Ummah who will eat all kinds of foods, drink all kinds of drinks, wear all kinds of clothes, and will indulge in all kinds of talk. They will be the worst of my Ummah.
