About Abu Muwahhid Asadullah At-Tarinidadi

I am a Muslim revert that follows the Qur'aan and the Sunnah according to the understanding of the Pious Predecessors, As-Salafus-Saalih to the best of my ability.

A pious woman

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen:

“A pious woman, even if she is not incredibly beautiful, her character and her religion make her attractive!”

[Sharh Riyadh as Saliheen (No. 280)].


Taking Shaytan as an ally

🍃🌸Those Who Take Shaytaan as an Ally🍃

“Allah, the Most High, said,

وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ كَانَ مِنَ الْجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّهِ أَفَتَتَّخِذُونَهُ وَذُرِّيَّتَهُ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِي وَهُمْ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ بِئْسَ لِلظَّالِمِينَ بَدَلًا

🔉”And [mention] when We said to the Angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, *except* for Iblees. He was from among the *Jinn* and departed from the command of his Lord.

👉🏾**Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you**? What a *wretched* *exchange* it is for the wrongdoers.”

⛰(Surah Kahf 18:50)⛰

🍃📌 Commenting on this ayah, one of the things that Ibn al-Qayim said, was:

* “It is almost as if under this speech there was an astonishing and delicate reprimand in that: ‘I showed enmity towards Iblis because he did not bow before your father Adam with My Angels, then the enmity [that I showed] was on _your part_, and then, the final result of this enmity [which I showed on your part] is that between you and him – you [went and) sealed a covenant of reconciliation. “*

(i.e. You pay back this enmity that Allah had on *your* behalf against Shaytaan….by befriending him….& being disobedient to Allah)💔

Reciting the Qur’aan


📚Ibn Al-Qayyim

📚The great scholar ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah once wrote:

فَلَو علم النَّاس مَا فِي قِرَاءَة الْقُرْآن بالتدبر لاشتغلوا بهَا عَن كل مَا سواهَا فَإِذا قَرَأَهُ بتفكر حَتَّى مر بِآيَة وَهُوَ مُحْتَاجا إِلَيْهَا فِي شِفَاء قلبه كررها وَلَو مائَة مرّة وَلَو لَيْلَة فقراءة آيَة بتفكر وتفهم خير من قِرَاءَة ختمة بِغَيْر تدبر وتفهم وأنفع للقلب وأدعى الى حُصُول الايمان وذوق حلاوة الْقُرْآن وَهَذِه كَانَت عَادَة السّلف يردد احدهم الاية الى الصَّباح وَقد ثَبت عَن النَّبِي انه قَامَ بِآيَة يُرَدِّدهَا حَتَّى الصَّباح وَهِي قَوْله {إِن تُعَذبهُمْ فَإِنَّهُم عِبَادك وَإِن تغْفر لَهُم فَإنَّك أَنْت الْعَزِيز الْحَكِيم} فقراءة الْقُرْآن بالتفكر هِيَ اصل صَلَاح الْقلب . ـ

If people only knew the great value of reciting the Qur’an with reflection, then they would devote themselves to it above anything else. For when one recites with contemplation, when he comes across an ayah which contains something needed to rectify his heart, he would repeat that ayah, perhaps as many as one hundred times or even for the entire night! For reciting a single ayah with contemplation and understanding is better, more beneficial for one’s heart, and more likely to bring about an increase in eemaan and tasting the sweetness of the Qur’an than reciting the entire Qur’an without reflection or understanding.

This used to be the practice of the Salaf, that one of them might repeat a single ayah until the morning came. It has also been authentically attributed to the Prophet that he stood in the night prayer until the morning came repeating a single ayah, which was:

إِن تُعَذبهُمْ فَإِنَّهُم عِبَادك وَإِن تغْفر لَهُم فَإنَّك أَنْت الْعَزِيز الْحَكِيم

If You punish them, then they are Your slaves. And if You forgive them, then You are the Mighty, the Wise. [5:118]

For reciting the Qur’an with contemplation is the very basis of the heart’s rectification.

وَلِهَذَا قَالَ ابْن مَسْعُود لاتهذوا الْقُرْآن هَذَا الشّعْر وَلَا تنثروه نثر الدقل وقفُوا عِنْد عجائبه وحركوا بِهِ الْقُلُوب لَا يكن هم احدكم آخر السُّورَة وروى ابو ايوب عَن ابي جَمْرَة قَالَ قلت لِابْنِ عَبَّاس اني سريع الْقِرَاءَة إِنِّي اقرا الْقُرْآن فِي ثَلَاث قَالَ لَان اقْرَأ سُورَة من الْقُرْآن فِي لَيْلَة فأتدبرها وأرتلها احب الي من ان اقْرَأ الْقُرْآن كَمَا تقْرَأ . ـ

In this same vein, ibn Mas’ood said, “Do not recite the Qur’an rapidly without pause like the recitation of poetry, and do not stop and pause (between every single ayah) like someone examining and selecting fruit. (Rather) stop when you come to one of its amazements, and let it move your heart, and do not be bothered if you do not reach the end of the surah.”

Aby Ayyub relayed that Abu Hamzah said, “I said to ibn ‘Abbaas, ‘I am very quick in my reading, I read the entire Qur’an in three days.’ He said to me, ‘For me to read a single surah and to contemplate it and recite it at a slow measured pace is more dear to me than to recite the Qur’an as you do.’”

والتفكر فِي الْقُرْآن نَوْعَانِ تفكر فِيهِ ليَقَع على مُرَاد الرب تَعَالَى مِنْهُ وتفكر فِي مَعَاني مَا دَعَا عباده الى التفكر فِيهِ فالاول تفكر فِي الدَّلِيل القرآني وَالثَّانِي تفكر فِي الدَّلِيل العياني الاول ففكر فِي آيَاته المسموعة وَالثَّانِي تفكر فِي آيَاته المشهودة وَلِهَذَا انْزِلْ الله الْقُرْآن ليتدبر ويتفكر فِيهِ وَيعْمل بِهِ لَا لمُجَرّد تِلَاوَته مَعَ الاعراض عَنهُ قَالَ الْحسن الْبَصْرِيّ انْزِلْ الْقُرْآن ليعْمَل بِهِ فاتخذوا تِلَاوَته عملا . ـ

And there are two types of contemplating the Qur’an. 1) Contemplating its contents in order to understand the meanings which your Lord intended, and 2) contemplating those meanings which invite the reader to reflect and ponder them. The first is contemplating over what the Qur’an shows and indicates, while the second is oriented towards what that person needs. The first is contemplating the ayah itself, while the second is contemplating the effects of the ayah on the person.

Along these lines, Allah has revealed the Qur’an for it to be contemplated, pondered over and acted upon, not for it to be merely recited while the people turn away from its meanings. al-Hasan al-Basri said, “The Qur’an was revealed to be acted upon, but these people treat reciting it as the action it requires.”

[Miftah Dar al-Sa’aadah 1/187]

Imam Ibn A Qayyim


Ibn Qayyim

(rahimahullah) said:

“Some people have a nature similar to the one of pigs, which doesn’t appreciate good food and rushes towards faeces if a man relives himself. Many people are like this. If they hear about or see with their own eyes your good qualities, even if these exceed your flaws by far, it doesn’t please them, they don’t pay attention to it nor do they mention it to other people. But if they see the least mistake in talk, or action, they react immediatly and wholeheartedly.

[Madaarij As-Salikin


Malik Ibn Dinar rahimahullaah

*A thief entered the house of Malik ibn Dinar* (رحمه الله), he found nothing [and] was going to leave. Malik ibn Dinar called,

سلام عليكم

“Peace be upon you.”, [the thief] said,

وعليكم السلام

“And upon you be peace.”, [Malik ibn Dinar] said,

ما حصَل لكم شيء من الدنيا، فترغَب في شيءٍ من الآخرة

“You did not attain anything from the world, do you desire something from the Hereafter?” [The thief] replied,


“Yes.”, [Malik ibn Dinar] said,

توضَّأ من هذا المِرْكَن وصَلِّ ركعتين، واستغفرِ الله

“Make ablution from this sink and pray two units of prayer, and ask Allah for forgiveness.” He [the thief] did so, then said,

يا سيِّدي، أجْلس إلى الصبح؟

“O’ sir, can I stay until the morning?”

Afterwards when they left for the masjid, his companions asked him,

مَن هذا معك؟

“Who is that with you?”, [Malik ibn Dinar] said,

جاء يَسْرقنا فسرقناه

“He came to steal from me, so I stole him.”

– Imam adh-Dhahabi, Tarikhu-l Islam, 2/144.

Good treatment to one’s wife!!

Sheikh Uthaimeen رحمه الله تعالى states in one of his fatwa:

“That which severes the the rope of love & affection between a husband & his wife is harshness & foul, obscene language. Happiness in a marriage does not come with harshness nor does it come with the man trying to overpower the woman. Rather, this treatment (meted out towards his wife) is incorrect!! 🏡

It is obligatory upon the husband to look at his wife as if she is his companion, as a mother of his children and a shepherd of his home. Therefore, it is upon him to respect her in the same manner as he wishes respect from her.”

Raising your children upon attending the masjid regularly

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

⏩ [VIDEO] Connect The Children To The Masaajid – Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

Topic : Connect The Children To The Masaajid

Speaker : Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

Translator : Faisal Ibn Abdul Qaadir Ibn Hassan

Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan (may Allah preserve him) said:

“Raise your children upon the worship of Allah, upon preserving the prayer with the congregation by attending the masaajid, upon seeking knowledge, attending the lessons of knowledge in the masaajid, the lectures, and other than that in which there is benefit for them. This is in order to supplement their lessons and their material at school. Also the masaajid, O servants of Allah, are the most important schools and they are more important than the schools that are well-known. So the masaajid are the schools in reality in which the children are raised upon the obedience of Allah, the worship of Allah, upon obtaining beneficial knowledge and righteous role models. So preserve them in the masaajid. Do not waste them nor leave them sleeping, amusing themselves, and playing. Make them attend the masaajid with you in order to train them upon obedience, to have affinity for the masaajid, to show them their fellow Muslim brothers praying in rows behind one Imam, supplicating to Allah, remembering Allah, and reciting the Quran. So preserve your children“.
