An Amazing Knowledge-Based Suprise for your Ramadhan

Alhamdulillaah it is a pleasure to publish this very important book. For the first time in the English language we have a reliable book discussing this topic. Authored by a mountain of knowledge.

About the Author:

Sheikh Abdulmuhsin al-`Abbaad is one of those few scholars who many scholars refer to him as their teacher. He is the former president of the Islamic University Madeenah, and was the first person who held the first class when the University was opened! and has since been teaching there for the past 50 years.!!

He also still has regular lectures at the Prophetic Masjid -where he recently finished his explanation on the 6 major books of hadeeth-. May Allaah bless the sheikh and elongate his life [he is almost 80 years]!

About the Book:

The topic of the book is critical.

So many have expressed their beliefs and opinions on this topic: those who say it is an innovation in Islam, those who say it is `symbolism’, the conspiracy theorists and their theories, those who have out-rightly rejected it!

And as such, do not be shaken by the whims and doubts.

This book expounds –with some detail- the correct belief [with proofs], and also refutes & responds to the common allegations of those who have wrong belief in this issue.

Enlighten yourself with authentic knowledge.

The book is available, to order send your request to bookrdrs

Masjid Rahmah Hajj /2010

As salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

I had the opportunity to travel with Masjid Rahmah for Umrah 2 years ago and it was an amazing experience. Im sure their Hajj trip is even more memorable and rewarding for the soul. Many of the people go year after year because of the amazing organization and the opportunity to sit with the scholars of Islam in Makkah and Madeenah.

Their tickets get booked pretty quick so don’t wait too long if you are looking for a group to go on Hajj with this year inshaAllah.


Bismillaah, wal-hamdulilaah, was-salaatu was-salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah,As Salaamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuh.Masjid Rahmah Hajj /2010

Making takfeer on those who haven’t embraced Islaam

An excellent reply on the topic of interfaith dialogue.

Qn28: Some of the people by what’s been called by ‘Interfaith Dialogue’ and they are claiming that those who Islaam hasn’t yet reached cannot be called kuffar (disbelievers) because the evidence hasn’t been established upon them. So, we ask you Shaykh, if you can explain this issue of making takfeer on those who haven’t embraced Islaam yet because the message hasn’t reached them.

Ans.28: This school of thought which you are mentioning are the exact thoughts of Dr Yusuf al-Qaradawi who’s an Egyptian Islamic doctor who lives in Qatar, and he is not trustworthy regarding the Religion. He is a servant of the freemasons; he gives da’wah promoting the unity of religions and that which was led by Hasan Turaaby from Sudan. We know from the Quran, the Sunnah and the Consensus of Scholars that people are of two types – and there is no third.
The types are, first those who responded to the Call of Allaah and His Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and they are the Muslims; while the second consists of those who have not responded to the Call of Allaah, and they are the Jews, the Christians and the Hindus; and these are the kuffar (disbelievers) due to the evidence in the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the Ijmaa’ (consensus of the Scholars). The Jews and the Christians are also known as the People of the Book due to the fact that they have heard about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and they also heard his call. In the hadeeth of the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, he says, ‘I swear by the One in Whose Hands my life is, there is not a Jew or Christian who heard about me and he dies without accepting that which I have brought, then he will enter the Hellfire.’ This interfaith dialogue is a sickness, an affliction, trying to bring about the unification of religions and it is not from the methodology of the Salaf; this hasn’t been known of until it became apparent from the Ikhwan al-Muslimeen in Egypt and has since branched out into different organisations in Sudan, Syria and other places. And as for the principles of this organisation, we will take that which we agree with and we will leave that which we disagree with. Their principles are the likes of which open ways to bid’ah (innovation) and enable the people of bid’ah to climb into the lives of the Muslims taking any opportunity they can to get to the misguided Muslim groups such as the Raafidah and other than them as well as the non-Muslims amongst the Jews and Christians. I have discussed this in detail previously and explained how these people leave al Walaa wal Baraa (the allegiance to the Muslims and not associating oneself to the Kuffar) although it is a principle of Islaam. As a result of this new thought, they call people to love the Christians and the Jews. This is one of their da’wah which adds itself to another of their da’wah to bring together the people of the Sunnah with the people of the Rafidaah together – and this was instigated by the founder of the Ikhwan al Muslimeen, Hasan al-Banna who clearly mentioned this. This man claimed that the Muslims and Jews should be brought together since their enmity wasn’t based on religion issues but rather our differences are economical ones – this was quoted by Mahmoud Abdul-Haleem in his book, ‘Al Ikhwaanu Ahdaatun sun’atu Tareekh’.
Every Muslim should know, there are two types in the religion, those who have accepted the words of Allaah and they are the Muslims, and those who haven’t and they are the Kuffar – and this is based on evidence from the Qur’aan, the Sunnah and the Ijmaa’. So I advise those who have been afflicted or tested with this Unity of religions to repent to Allaah. It is clear that there is no problem with is giving the Jews and Christians da’wah by using all the means causing them to love this religion. We should make apparent to them the good deeds of Islaam of which are Righteousness, Justice, prohibition of Oppression, Honesty, Protection, Security for ourselves and our neighbours, security of their wealth and their person and all other positive aspects of Islaam since it is the upright and straight religion and it is the only religion which Allaah is pleased by. And Allaah Knows Best.


The Muslim Woman Increases More In Worship Than The Man In Ramadan By Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee,

Questioner inquires: What is the Muslim Woman’s agenda in Ramadan so that she can worship Allah by way of it and at the same time complete the services of the people of her household?

Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee, may Allah preserve him, answers: We say that the Muslim Woman’s agenda is that of the (Muslim) Mans. However the Muslim Women increases in worship. That is because when the women strives in the service of her h…usband and the members of her household and she prepares food for them that which will sufice them, then she is in obedience to Allah, ‘azza wa jall, provided that she seeks the reward from Allah. Therefore, in this is a reward for her and also an increasement for her good deeds. And it is befitting for the Muslim Women when she is preparing the food that she busy’s her tongue with the rememberance of Allah. So while she is cooking she glorifies Allah, while she is cooking she is saying tahleel (Laa ilaaha illa Allah/ None has the right to be worshipped except Allah), while she is cooking she is remembering Allah and in that she will have a tremendous reward. (Like this) preparing food will never divert her from the obedience of her Lord, Glorified is He, during the day of Ramadan. So congratulations to the Muslim Women who services her husband and the members of her household and she seeks the reward from Allah, ‘azza wa jall, and by that she does not become heedless concerning the rememberance of Allah and she performs what she is capable of doing from the different acts of worship during the day of Ramadan. For indeed she has achieved a great success.

Sermons during the Taraweeh

Sermons During the Taraweeh

Al ‘Allaamah Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah have mercy upon him, was asked:

In Kuwait, we have a sermon after four Rak’ahs of Salaatul Qiyaam, is this permissible? If it is permissible, how should this sermon be given?

He responded:

My opinion is that you should not do it.

Firstly: It is not from the guidance of the Salaf.

Secondly: Some people may want to pray Tahajjud and return home, and doing so may be a hindrance for them because it forces them to listen to the sermon. If a sermon is not accepted, its harm is greater than its benefit, this is why the Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم – used to draw the companions he used to give sermons to, he wouldn’t burden them and be repetitive.

So I see that leaving it is better. If the Imaam would like to give a sermon, he should give it at the end, when the prayer is finished.

He was also asked: What is the ruling of constantly giving a sermon in the midst of Salaatul Taraweeh?

The Shaykh, may Allaah have mercy upon him, responded:

As for giving a sermon then no, because this is not from the guidance of the Salaf. But the Imaam may give a sermon if needed or if he would like to, after the Taraweeh. If he intends worship by doing so it is an innovation, and the sign that he intends worship by it, is that he continues doing it every night.

Furthermore we say; why my brother, are you giving a sermon to the people? Some people may have work to do and would like to finish the prayer so that they may have implemented the saying of the Messenger:

“Whoever stands in prayer with the Imaam until he finishes would receive the reward of a whole night in prayer.”

If you yourself love to give a sermon, and half of the people in the Masjid also love this, rather three quarters of them do, do not constrain one quarter of the people for the sake of three quarters. Didn’t the Messenger – صلى الله عليه وسلم – say:

“If one of you were to lead the prayer then make it light, for indeed there are weak, ill and people with needs praying behind you.”

Or as was stated by the Messenger – صلى الله عليه وسلم, meaning do not compare the people to yourself or to others who love the sermon, compare the people with what makes them at ease. Pray the Taraweeh with them, and if you finish and the people finish, then say what you wish.

We ask Allaah to bless us and you with beneficial knowledge, and righteous actions.

[Liqaa al baab al Maftooh: 118]

Al ‘Allaamah al Albaanee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, was asked: Is it permissible for the Imaam of the Masjid to give a sermon between Rak’ahs during Salaatul Taraweeh?

He responded: It can be permissible and it can be impermissible. If it is concerning drawing people’s attention to an immediate issue, warning them, ordering with good and forbidding from evil concerning it, then it is an obligation. As for it being taken as a habit that is always practiced, then this is contradictory to the Sunnah.

[Silsilat al Hudaa wan Noor: 656]

He also said: The night prayer during Ramadaan was legislated in order to draw closer to Allaah the Mighty and Majestic with prayer, this is why I do not see that Salaatul Taraweeh should be mixed with knowledge or teaching and so on, Salaatul Qiyaam should be the only worship performed. As for knowledge, then it has its time, and it is not specified to any specific time, rather the best interest of the students should be taken into consideration.

This is the basis, and I intend by is to clarify that whoever makes a habit out of teaching people between every four Rak’ahs during Salaatul Qiyaam for example, then this is a newly innovated matter that contradicts the Sunnah.
