As salamu alikum and hello!
Sorry about not posting last Friday, it was totally crazy that day. Hope this post is beneficial to you.
Describing Allah without proof from the Quran or authentic Sunnah
For example, describing Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) as being everywhere is a serious misconception of which many Muslims are guilty. The Quran and authentic Sunnah are both replete with proofs which show that Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is above and beyond His creation, and not a part of it, as the statement that ‘He, is everywhere’ necessitates. The following Hadeeth clearly indicate this.
Mu’aawiyah bin Al-Hakim said: “I had a servant girl who used to tend to my sheep in the area of Mount Uhud, near a place called Al-Jawwaareeyah. One day I came to see them only to find that a wolf had made off with a sheep from her flock. Since, I, like the rest of Adam’s descendants, am prone to do regrettable acts, I gave her a terrible slap in the face. When I came to Allah’s Messenger with the story, he considered it a grave thing for me to have done. I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah couldn’t I free her?’
He replied: “Bring her to me.”
So I brought her. He then asked her,
“Where is Allah?”
And she replied: “Above the sky.” Then he asked her:
“Who am I?”
She replied: “You are Allah’s Messenger.” So he said:
“Free her; for she is a believer.”
It must be noted that one of the duties of the Messenger was to correct any mistakes anyone committed in this religion (Deen). His silence after asking her, “Where is Allah?” and she replied “Above the sky”, is an indication that her answer is correct. His affirming that she is a believer, at the end of the Hadeeth, is the direct proof that her answers were correct, otherwise he would be lying, and we seek refuge with Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) for even thinking that lying is possible from the Messenger (sallallahu 'alayhi wassallam).
What should be noted, is the fact that the first question he asked her was: ‘Where is Allah?’ and not if she believed in Him, the Most High. Since the question was: ‘Where is Allah?’ great importance and attention must be given to the fact that, since he accepted that Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) is above the skies as the correct answer, that this direct proof that this the correct view on the question.
As salamu alikum and hello everyone! People have started going to work this week mashallah. The summer has ended for most people, and schools are starting next week inshallah. I think :P. I know some of my friends are, inshallah.
I made a few things during the summer, and put a few of them into this post!
As salamu alikum and hello!
During and after Ramadan, I started posting parts of a book called Guarding the Tongue that I was reading. Since I have come towards the end of the book, I decided that I will post a little bit of the rest of the book every Friday inshallah. Today, I have started with the beginning of Appendix A, and will continue with it until I have reached the end of the book. I hope that these posts will benefit whoever reads them, as they benefited me.
As salamu alikum and hello everyone!
My deepest apologies for not posting this sooner. This is the last chapter of the book but there are three appendixes with lots more information that I have decided inshallah to just post them on Fridays. So, lets get on with it!
I have this book, Guarding the Tongue, from the book Al-Adhkaar. It is the 4th book of The Golden Advice Series from DARUSSALAM PUBLICATIONS, that I have been reading during Ramadan besides the Quran and any other Islamic books inshallah. My idea is to post a little from the book that I learned and I want to share, from each chapter each week inshallah. There are four chapters along with three appendixes, so there should be plenty of things to share about inshallah.
The chapter this week is: Expiating Oneself and Repenting From Backbiting
