Glad tidings to Ahlus-Sunnah
Qur’ān Recitation by our Shaykh ʿAbdur-Raqīb al-Kawkabānī رحمه الله
“Whoever killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims, shall not smell the smell of Paradise though its smell is perceived from a distance of forty years.”
“Oh son of Ādam! Do not fall short in performing the four Rakʿāt for Me in the beginning of your day; I will provide for you in it’s latter part.”
Qurʿān Recitation from Sūrah Maryam (13:76-98) by the Shaykh Dr. Sulṭān bin Muḥammad al-Qāsimī -May Allāh preserve him-, Ruler of the Emirate of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates
The Prophet ﷺ said, ‘The belief is that of the Yemenis and wisdom is Yemeni.’
Can this be ascribed to those who belong to current-day Yemen? Or is it restricted to the lifetime of the Prophet ﷺ? Or is it applicable up until the Hour is established? Does it refer to the people of Hijāz and the Ansār? How about the Rāfidhah?
Allāh tests his slaves with defeats and trials, in order to distinguish between the believer and the hypocrite, because if the believers were to be victorious continuously in all events, then even those who did not want it would enter Islam. So if in some incidents, some types of trials were to occur, the believer who truly desires Islam in prosperity and adversity, in ease and in hardship, will become distinct from those who are not like that.
Oh! Muslim, contemplate about your religion, deliberate, and see who your enemy is. And if such a state is established that harnesses its media and wealth for revolutions and coups, rather it shelters seniors of the Muslim Brotherhood, those who advocate revolutions and speaks against the scholars of Islām and Sunnah, then it is permissible to speak against it unanimously and warn against its evil and even supplicate against it and we will pray against it.
“When the fitnah draws near, it is recognized by every ʿālim, and when it has retreated it is recognized by every jāhil.”
