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

๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธThose Who Take Shaytaan as an Ally๐Ÿƒ

“Allah, the Most High, said,

๐Ÿ”‰”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.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ**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.”

โ›ฐ(Surah Kahf 18:50)โ›ฐ

๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ“Œ 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: โ€˜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)๐Ÿ’”

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* (ุฑุญู…ู‡ ุงู„ู„ู‡), he found nothing [and] was going to leave. Malik ibn Dinar called,

ุณู„ุงู… ุนู„ูŠูƒู…

โ€œPeace be upon you.โ€, [the thief] said,

ูˆุนู„ูŠูƒู… ุงู„ุณู„ุงู…

โ€œAnd upon you be peace.โ€, [Malik ibn Dinar] said,

ู…ุง ุญุตูŽู„ ู„ูƒู… ุดูŠุก ู…ู† ุงู„ุฏู†ูŠุงุŒ ูุชุฑุบูŽุจ ููŠ ุดูŠุกู ู…ู† ุงู„ุขุฎุฑุฉ

โ€œYou did not attain anything from the world, do you desire something from the Hereafter?โ€ [The thief] replied,


โ€œYes.โ€, [Malik ibn Dinar] said,

ุชูˆุถู‘ูŽุฃ ู…ู† ู‡ุฐุง ุงู„ู…ูุฑู’ูƒูŽู† ูˆุตูŽู„ู‘ู ุฑูƒุนุชูŠู†ุŒ ูˆุงุณุชุบูุฑู ุงู„ู„ู‡

โ€œMake ablution from this sink and pray two units of prayer, and ask Allah for forgiveness.โ€ He [the thief] did so, then said,

ูŠุง ุณูŠู‘ูุฏูŠุŒ ุฃุฌู’ู„ุณ ุฅู„ู‰ ุงู„ุตุจุญุŸ

โ€œO’ sir, can I stay until the morning?โ€

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

ู…ูŽู† ู‡ุฐุง ู…ุนูƒุŸ

โ€œWho is that with you?โ€, [Malik ibn Dinar] said,

ุฌุงุก ูŠูŽุณู’ุฑู‚ู†ุง ูุณุฑู‚ู†ุงู‡

โ€œHe came to steal from me, so I stole him.โ€

Their perception

One thing we must keep in mind is that most movies or tv shows show a Muslim male doing wudhu (the ritual purification of washing up before we pray), with adhan (the call for prayer) playing in the background,before the act of blowing himself up. How stupid is this? And very idiotic!!! To purify yourself before committing a heinous and disposable act like this is not a form of worship from many angles.

Blowing yourself up – killing yourself – for any reason is not found in Islaam. But today, it’s like when a person sees someone washing up to pray like in the train station or in the airport or at work, they immediately think of a terroristic act or group – Islaam and the Muslims. Today terrorism and Islaam have become synonymous, because the media has targeted this religion and put it out there as the most heinous thing out there. But it is the fastest growing religion in the world.

A good read about terrorism, allowing our scholars to speak about terrorism themselves are:
