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!
In these last few days and nights left in the month of Ramadhaan, I wanted to share a beautiful lecture given by Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel explaining the tremendous du’a below. This is one of the best lectures I have ever heard mashaAllah. It will surely increase not just your understanding of this du’a but also your emaan.

Most Superior way of asking for Forgiveness from Allah
The Messenger of Allaah may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him said :
Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say
Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee, wa ana abduka,
wa ana ala ahdika wa wadika mastatatu, aouthu bika min sharri ma
sanatu, aboou laka binimatika alayya, wa aboou bitahmbee, faghfirlee
fainnahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba illa anta[ Sahih Bukhari Vol.8 Hadith no:318]
O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and
I am Your slave and I am abiding to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You
from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me,
so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.
So if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing init and he dies enters Paradise,
and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.
There is a big difference between reading a book on your own and listening to the explanation of that same text from a scholar who is qualified to teach and explain it.
Recently I was listening to Shaykh Saalim at-Taweel’s explanation of Ibn Baz’s (rahimahullah – may Allah have mercy upon him) book ‘Important Lessons for every Muslim’.
In one of the lectures, he explained Tawheed and Shirk and gave a beautiful explanation.
Tawheed, as we know is the most important pillar of our religion and the whole universe was created for the sole reason of establishing tawheed. The Messengers were sent for Tawheed; the books were revealed to teach people Tawheed; all of the creation was created for Tawheed.
Here is the audio clip! Its an amazing reminder for those who may have studied books like Kitaab at-Tawheed and Qawaid ul-‘arba (Four fundamental principles of Shirk), yet at the same time a tremendous beginner’s lesson for those new to learning about Islaam and its foundations.
This one is not to be missed!
May Allah reward the Shaykh for sharing his knowledge with us in the West. And don’t forget to travel to sit with him when he comes here next month inshaAllah.
