Shaykh Muhammad al-Madkhalee’s interaction with Shaykh Fawzaan & his status with the Senior Scholars

Bismillaah

Check this video Shaykh Muhammed al-Madkhalee requesting Shaykh al-Fawzaan to clarify a matter

Inshaa’Allaah there are many things to learn from this short clip:-

1. How to interact with the Scholars, Duaat and our elders

2. How to ask questions

3. Status of Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee in the eyes of the Senior Scholars. 4 seconds into the video, Shaykh Fawzaan refers to Shaykh Muhammad al-Madkhalee as “Shaykh Muhammad… Muhammad Hakami”. Perhaps the reason can be understood from the narration of Ustaadh Abdulilah Lahmaamee below…

Sheikh Falaah said of Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee al-Madkhali that he indeed was blessed by Allaah in bringing the proof where it was needed and his memory mashaallaah of Shaykh Haafidh al-Hakami’s thousands of lines of poetry  who is considered to be his sheikh’s sheikh. Also sheikh Falah mentioned when he visited a month ago that Sheikh Muhammad having learnt much at a young age amidst a scholarly family, indeed has excelled many in his age and those older than him.

Check this video for proof of what Shaykh Falaah has mentioned above

Impression of the memory of Shaykh Muhammed al-Madkhalee

It was narrated a few months ago by Shaykh Khaalid ibn Abdur Rahmaan al-Misree that the Imaam of Jarh wat Ta’deel of our time, Dr. Rabee’ al-Madkhalee called Dr. Muhammad ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee an “Allaamah“. Click http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=126731

On a personal note, I (ابو عبدالله ساجد) had the opportunity to sit in one of the lectures of Shaykh Muhammad before Hajj last year and also ask him a few questions after the lecture at Masjid Qiblatain in Madeenah. Mashaa’Allaah laa quwata illa billaah, the Shaykh is very charismatic and full of energy. When he is around there’s a buzz in the place and his energy and enthusiasm passes on to others. WAllahul Muwaffiq.

Good manners and silence…

 

On the authority of Anas (radi Allaahu ‘anhu) who said that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam)
met Abu Dharr (radi Allaahu ‘anhu), and said to him:

‘O Abu Dharr Shall I not inform you of two characteristics which are lighter on your back and heavier on the scales than other than them?’

He answered: ‘Of course O Messenger of Allaah.’

He said:

‘You should have good manners and remain silent for a long time.
I swear by He in whose Hand is my soul, no-one has acted upon
better than the likes of these two characteristics.’

~
No. 1938 Silsilah Ahadeeth As-Saheehah of Shaykh Al-Albaani
May Allah make us from those who are bestowed these two blessings. These times we live in, apparently it has become hard for people to become silent. It seems as if they speak on matters that it is not befitting they speak on.

New Short Beneficial Audio Clip: 4 Types of Disbelievers

Here is another excellent audio clip from one of the lectures of Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel.

In this audio clip, he talks about the four different types of disbelievers and what our position should be in regards to them.

At the end of the clip, he also talks about what the scholars have said regarding what the position of the Muslims should be when they are in weakness and the kuffaar (disbelievers) are stronger and have power over the Muslims.

Very beneficial listen!

I understood that guiding people by action is more inspiring..

October 2, 2010 3 comments

Imam Ibn ul Jawzee

From “Sayd Al-Khaatir” (138)

I have met many mashaaykh and the affair of one was different from that of the other, and their knowledge capacity were of varying levels. And the one whom I benefited from his company the most was the one who used to apply what he knew, even though there were those who were more knowledgeable than him.

I met a group from the people of hadeeth who memorized and knew a lot, however they would permit backbiting under the guise of jarh wa ta’deel (ed.: “accreditation and disreputation”, science of criticism of narrators), they would take monetary payment in return for narrating hadeeth, and they would be hasty in giving answers, even if they are wrong, lest their status diminishes.

I met Abdulwahaab Al-Anmaatee, he used to be upon the methodology of the salaf. One would never hear backbiting in his gatherings nor would he take payment for teaching hadeeth. Whenever I read a hadeeth that contained in it a heart-softener, he used to cry continuously. I was very young at that time, (but) his crying affected my heart. He had the calm of those whose description we hear about from the narrations.

I met Abu Mansur Al-Jawaaliqee, he was very quiet, very careful about what he said, precise, and scholarly. Sometimes he would be asked a question, which may seem easy; one that our young ones would rush to answer, however he would withhold from answering until he was certain. He used to fast a lot and remain quiet often.

Thus, I benefited from these two more than I benefited from the others, and I understood from this that: guiding people by one’s action is more inspiring than doing so by words. So by Allah, one should implement what he knows for it is indeed the greatest foundation. And the miskeen, the true miskeen is the one who wasted his life learning what he does not practice, thus he looses the pleasures of the dunyah and the goodies of the akhirah. (In addition to) Coming forth bankrupt (on the day of judgment) with strong evidences against himself.”

Proper Manners To Answer The Telephone

September 25, 2010 4 comments

Bismillah

Proper Manner in Answering the Phone

What follows is beneficial knowledge from AshShaykh Al’Allaamah AlAlbaanee (rahimahullaah) transmitted by way of his student Saalih bin Taha Abu Islaam in his book entitled, (what translated means) Al’aqeedah first, if they but only knew (Vol 1, pgs. 16-17), wherein he (Abu Islaam) said,

He called me rahimahullaah (meaning AshShaykh AlAlbaanee) one day by telephone, but I was not there. My young daughter, upon answering the telephone, said, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaah”. The Shaykh asked for me and then said to her, “Inform your father that Muhammad Naasiriddeen AlAlbaanee called”. (He did not say ‘AshShaykh’ . . . and this is from his humbleness, may Allaah raise his rank in Aljannah)”.

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.

These are the happiest times for a Sunni, when he hears that he can have the chance to sit with one of the mashaayikh of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.

Tolerating The Harm From His Christian Neighbor For 20 Yrs

“He Tolerated the Harm of His Christian Neighbor for 20 Years Which Was the Reason for His Acceptance of Islam…”

AbdurRahman.org | April 3, 2010 at 2:14 PM | Categories: Character | URL: http://wp.me/p1VJ3-gh

This is a clear example from the Salaf (i.e. pious predecessors) of how to call to the religion of Allah indirectly with your character, as sometimes calling a person directly may not prove the most effective way. Many accepted Islam because of hearing about the divine character of Prophet Muhammad (Sallahu alaihi wa salam), even before they met him…as all of us did!!!

Hassan Al Basree (Rahimahillah) had a neighbor who was a Christian. This neighbor had a toilet on the roof of his apartment and it used to leak through a hole in the roof of Hassan Al Basree’s apartment. Hassan placed a bucket beneath the hole to catch the urine that would leak through it and discard the contents at the end of each day. This continued for 20 years.

Then one day, Hassan fell ill and his Christian neighbor came to visit him. When he entered, the neighbor noticed the bucket of urine that was leaking through the hole in his ceiling and asked Hassan astoundingly: “How long have you been tolerating this harm from me?!” Hassan replied: “For 20 years!”

So the Christian neighbor took off his belt (which was the clothing of the Christians during that time) and accepted Islam…!!!
