Stories of the Prophets of Imam as-Sa’dee

January 16, 2019

I finished translating these over a year ago.  Imaam as-Sa’dee in his book قصص الأنبياء would narrate a story of one of the Prophets and then mention some benefits taken from the story.  I do not include the benefits after the stories because the brother Hasan as-Somali was translating them from the book: مصابيح الضياء which, as I understand it, was a compilation of the benefits from Qasasul Anbiyaa and Allaah knows best. So in summary, Qasasul Anbiyaa of Imaam as-Sa’dee included his narration of the stories of the Prophets as well as benefits, but I only include those stories below.  The brother Abdulillaah Lahmami also reads and translates these stories here:

 

Imaam as-Sa’dee also included the story of the people of the cave and Dhul Qarnain and Khidr – who were not Prophets. I am posting my previously completed translation for those who wish to use them for homeschooling or educational purposes and find reading an easier means of absorbing the information. Brother Abdullaah Lahmami’s translation will be better because his knowledge of Arabic is better.

Whichever translation you use, please reference the book: Qasas al Anbiyaa (Stories of the Prophets), the author: Imaam as-Sa’dee, and the translator (for the files BELOW that is me: Ummu Khadijah). The footnotes in the files below are mine.

Don’t fear them, but fear Me

January 15, 2019

This first part is translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s explanation of Kitabut-Tawheed by Imam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhaab

 

The statement of Allaah, The Most High (translated): “That is only shaytaan who tries to make you fear his helpers and supporters.  So don’t fear them, but fear Me if you are truly Believers.” (Aal-Imraan 3:175)

 

Explanation by Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan:

 

1.The connection between this chapter and kitabut-tawheed:

Fear is one of the most common forms of worship and it must be directed only to Allaah, The Most High. The author is pointing out with this chapter the obligation to fear Allaah alone.

 

2.The word “Innamaa” إِنَّمَا is a restrictive particle.

3.“Shaytaan” is a proper name for Iblees, the cursed one.

4.“Who tries to make you fear his helpers and supporters” means he tries to make you fear his helpers and supporters by making you think they have tremendous powers.

 

5.“So don’t fear them” meaning don’t fear his friends and helpers that he is trying to make you fear.

 

6.“but fear Me” so don’t disobey Me

 

7.“if you are truly Believers” because faith requires you to put fear of Allaah ahead of fear of people.

 

8.The summarized meaning of the verse is: Allaah, The Most High, informs us that one of the strategies of the enemy of Allaah is to make the Believers fear his helpers and soldiers so that they won’t struggle against them by enjoining the good and forbidding the evil.

Allaah has prohibited us from fearing them and commanded us to fear Him Alone. This is what faith requires.

Every time the servant’s faith strengthens, fear of the helpers of shaytaan leaves his heart.  And every time his faith weakens, his fear of them increases.

 

Benefits of this verse:

1.Fear is an act of worship that is for Allaah alone.

2.Being afraid of other than Allaah is polytheism (shirk) when one fears that someone other than Allaah – an idol or something which is worshiped other than Him – will afflict him with a calamity,

3.This is a warning from this strategy shaytaan uses.

 

Al Mulakh-khas fee Sharh Kitabut-Tawheed p. 258

 

 

 

 

The second part is taken from:

http://www.rabee.net/ar/questions.php?cat=18&id=102

 

Q: Is fear of the jinn considered to be from natural fear or no?

A (Shaikh Rabee): If fear of the jinn is the secret fear in which someone believes the jinn can benefit them or harm then, then this is polytheism:

“Men from mankind used to seek refuge with the men of the jinn, but they only increased them in terror.” (al-Jinn 72:6)

 

Usually fear of the jinn enters into the fear that is worship and Allaah knows best. Because a person believes the jinn can harm them or benefit them.  However, none possesses the ability to bring about harm or benefit except Allaah.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Know that if the entire world got together to benefit you with something, they would not be able to benefit you with anything except what Allaah had decreed for you to get. And if they all got together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except what Allaah had decreed to happen to you.” (collected by at-Tirmidhee)

The sincere Muslim fears none but Allaah, Mighty and Majestic is He: “Don’t fear them, but fear Me if you are truly Believers.” (Aal-Imran 3:175)

Meaning – the secret fear, fear of worship. As for being afraid of a snake, a lion, or an evil person who might attack you and you are unable to resist him, then this is the natural fear that doesn’t harm a person to have. This won’t harm a person if Allaah wills, and it is not a deficit in one’s beliefs.

However, fear of the jinn usually is based upon corrupt beliefs. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) has given you weapons and knowledge. Recite ayatul Kursi. Recite the 3 surahs that begin with “qul” (ikhlass, falaq and naas). Protect yourself. The remembrance of Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic, protects you from them. Do those things that will protect you from them and from every type of harm – from snakes, vipers, scorpions and other than them. Like saying: “I seek refuge with the Perfect Words of Allaah from the evil of what He has created.” When you say these things with sincerity and truthfulness, nothing will harm you – not a jinn, nor a snake nor other than that. May Allaah bless you.

 

Allaah is not inside His creation

September 22, 2018

 

From Shaikh Zaid al-Madkhalee’s explanation of the Introduction of Ibn Abee Zaid al Qayrawanee (Awdaahul-Ma’aanee), p.26-27

(Translation follows)

:(السؤال: فسّر بعض المفسرين قوله ( سبحانه وتعالى

 ( اللهُ الصَّمَدُ )

 {الإخلاص:2}

بالذي لا جوف له, فهل هذا صحيح؟ وما وجه كونه صفة كمال لله ( عز وجل )؟

الجواب: هذا ذكره المفسّرون إذ قالوا: الصمد الذي لا جوف له,

أي أنّ الله – تبارك وتعالى – ليس فيه أحد من مخلوقاته

ولا هو في شيء من مخلوقاته, فهو صفة مدح لا شكّ في ذلك,

والله أعلم.

 

Question: Some of the scholars explain His (سبحانه وتعالى) statement:

“Allaahus-Samad” (al-Ikhlaas 112:2)

They explain this statement to mean, “He has no ‘jawf’” – is this correct?  And do they mean this as a description of Allaah’s perfection (عز وجل)?

 

Answer by Shaikh Zaid al-Madkhalee (رحمه الله): This is what the scholars mention when they say, “As-Samad is the one who has no ‘jawf’.”  This means that Allaah (تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى) – no one from His creation is in Him and He is not inside any of His creation.  So without a doubt, this is a praiseworthy description.”

Duas for purifying the heart and the tongue

February 17, 2016

 

The following was translated from:

http://www.binbaz.org.sa/node/9176

 

Question: What is the dua to purify the heart from resentment and jealousy and to purify the tongue from backbiting, tale-carrying, and lying?

 

Answer (Shaikh Bin Baz): The male or female Muslim makes dua for everything that benefits him with regards to that. So he says (for example):

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ خُلُقٍ لا يُرْضِيْكَ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every characteristic that is not pleasing to You.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنَ الغِلِّ والحِقْدِ والحَسَدِ والكِبْرِ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from hatred, resentment, jealousy, and arrogance.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ أَذَى ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every evil, from every harm, and from every disease.”

 

All of these are good things to say. So when the male or female Muslim makes dua with the likes of these duas, then that is good. He can use general words (like):

(Translator’s Note: Shaikh Ibn Baz is mostly giving examples of things people can say using general wordings (i.e. not a specifically worded dua from the Quran or Sunnah). He also mentions two specifically worded duas from the authentic Sunnah whose references can be found in the footnotes.)

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ

“O Allaah purify my heart from every evil.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ مَا يُغْضِبُكَ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from everything which angers You.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ غِلٍّ وَحِقْدٍ وَحَسَدٍ، وَكِبْرٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from all hatred, resentment, jealousy, and arrogance.”

 

And what is similar to that (from expressions).  And he says:

 

اللهُمَّ يَا مُقَلِّبَ القُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِيْنِكَ

“O Allaah, O Turner of the hearts, keep my heart firm upon your religion”[1]

 

يَا مُصَرِّفَ القُلُوْبِ صَرِّفْ قَلْبِي عَلَى طَاعَتِكَ

And, “O Turner of the hearts, turn my heart to your obedience”[2]

 

 

اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ قَلْبِي وَعَمَلِي

“O Allaah, make my heart and my deeds upright.”

 

اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ قَلْبِي وَعَمَلِي

“O Allaah, make my heart and my deeds upright.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every evil.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every disease.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي وَجَوَارِحِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart and my limbs from every evil.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي وَجَوَارِحِي مِنْ كُلِّ مَا يُغْضِبُكَ

“O Allaah, purify my heart and my limbs from everything that angers You.”

 

 

All of these are good, appropriate words (to say). Jazaakumullaahu khairan.

Allaah’s Mercy is more vast than your sins

December 28, 2015

 

 

The following was translated from Imaam Muhammad Amaan al-Jaamee’s explanation of Shaikh Uthaymeen’s excellent book:

 

القواعد المثلى في صفات الله وأسمائه الحسنى

Exemplary Principles Concerning the Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allaah

 

This was taken from the fourth tape (or audio), starting at approximately minute 50.  It can be listened to here:

http://subulsalam.com/play.php?catsmktba=3198

 

 

The Question (summarized): The questioner says that he has transgressed against his soul numerous time and he fears for himself an evil end due to the abundance of transgressions and the lack of firmness in tawbah, so he wants to know what should he do?

 

Answer (Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al Jaamee): Firstly, we ask Allaah for yourself and for ourselves for a sincere repentance and for firmness in that repentance.  And we remind you of the statement of Allaah – He is free of all deficiencies and defects and The Most High, where He encouraged those who transgressed against themselves to repent, He called them “servants”, and He ascribed them to Himself in the statement:

 

قل يا عبادي الذين أسرفوا على أنفسهم لا تقنطوا من رحمة الله إن الله يغفر الذنوب جميعا إنه هو الغفور الرحيم

 

“Say: O My servants who have transgressed against themselves, do not give up hope of receiving Allaah’s Mercy.  Indeed Allaah forgives all sins.  Indeed He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” (39:53)

 

And there is encouragement after this encouragement.  He didn’t say (addressing them): “O Transgressors” or “O Sinners”.  Rather, He said:

 

“Say: O My servants”

 

He addressed them – while they are transgressors – He addressed them as “servants”, ascribing them to Himself with a kind ascription that encourages the sinner to rush to repentance.

 

“O My servants who have transgressed against themselves”

 

And committed many sins.

 

“Don’t give up hope of receiving Allaah’s Mercy”

 

We say to the questioner: your enemy Shaytaan has overpowered you and made you fall into sins and evil deeds.  Now he wants to make you fall again into something much more dangerous than those sins: giving up hope for Allaah’s Mercy.  And this is much more dangerous that all of those sins that you committed.

 

Don’t give up hope.  Don’t give up hope for Allaah’s Mercy.  No matter what you have committed, not matter what evil you have done, no matter how much you have transgressed,

 

Allaah’s Mercy is more vast that your sins.

 

Repent to Allaah.  Turn to Allaah having a good intention with your Lord – He is free from all deficiencies and defects and The Most High.  Fight against your soul.

 

If you have sinned then you admit it, you leave that sin, feel regret for it and are determined not to return to it.  Seeking repentance is admitting (your sin), feeling sincere regret, and that a person has sincere determination not to return to that sin.

If after that you slip and fall (into sin again), then know that your first repentance remains valid.  It wasn’t broken or nullified or corrupted if you were sincere and truthful with Allaah that time.  So repent again.

 

It is mentioned in some of the narrations that when a servant commits a sin, then he says: O my Lord, I have sinned

 

Allaah, The Most High, says: My servant knows that he has a Lord Who forgives sins.

 

If he slips (and sins) again, and says (the same thing), then Allaah says the same thing.  (The Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam) mentioned this three times.[1]

 

Allaah – He is free from all deficiencies and defects and The Most High – spreads His two hands at night to accept the repentance of the one who does evil by day, and (He also does so) during the day to accept the repentance of the one who does evil by night.

 

Allaah – subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa – is tremendously pleased with the repentance of His believing servant – the likes of this pleasure has no comparison.  The Messenger of Allaah – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – affirmed that when he gave the example of the owner of the she-camel who was traveling with his she-camel in the earth[2].  So (he stopped to rest and) sleep overcame him.  He slept under a tree.  His camel left and upon it was his food and drink.  He woke up and searched for it but didn’t find it, so he accepted that he was going to die.  He returned to sleep and to die under that tree.  Sleep overcame him and when he woke up there was his she-camel standing at his head with his food and drink.

 

So he turned to it and said due to the severity of his happiness: O Allaah, I am your Lord and you are my servant (and he meant: You are my Lord and I am Your servant).  The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam) said that he made that mistake due to the severity of his happiness.

 

The Messenger – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – said: “Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of His servant when he turns penitently towards Him than one of you would be on finding the lost camel.”[3]

 

What do you want, O you who has transgressed against your soul, and how numerous are those who transgress against their souls!  What more could you want than this encouragement?  Return to your Lord and your Lord will be pleased with you.  Because you are a runaway slave, return to your Master and Guardian, so that He will accept you.  Receive glad tidings of good.  We ask Allaah for ourselves and for yourself for a sincere repentance and for firmness.

Then he remains without Committing any another sin for a while and then commits another sin (for the third time) and says, ‘O my Lord, I have committed another sin, please forgive me,’ and Allah says, ‘My slave has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for it I therefore have forgiven My slave (his sin), he can do whatever he likes.” Translation of the hadeeth from: http://spubs.com/sps/sbk/

The Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – made dua for him

Saying (translated), “O Allaah, increase his wealth and his children

And enter him into Paradise”

He died in the year 92 after the Hijrah and some say the 93rd year

When he was over 100 years old
