How can I obtain khashyah of Allaah?

September 18, 2015

The following was translated from:

http://ar.miraath.net/fatwah/12160

Question: (We ask that) Allaah bless you, our Shaikh.  The seventh question is: How can I truthfully obtain khashyah of Allaah, Mighty and Majestic is He?

Answer by Shaikh Ubaid al Jaabiree:

We advise you, O my young son, with several things:

(1) Reciting the Noble Quran a lot

(2) Doing many acts of worship: Preserving the acts of worship that Allaah has made obligatory and increasing in the extra (nawaafil) good deeds

Thirdly, mentioning the Name of Allaah – He is the Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects – a lot by saying:

subhaanAllaah (this means that you declare that Allaah is Free from all deficiencies, faults, and defects)

laa illaaha illallaah

Allaahu akbar

Alhamdulillah

(4) Sitting with the good people (Tayyibeen) wherever they gather in the masjids, at the times of the five prayers in congregation and at jumuah

The difference between khashyah and khawf

September 14, 2015

http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=102047

Shaikh Uthaymeen said as part of his tafseer for verse

وَأَهْدِيَكَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ فَتَخْشَىٰ

(The saying of Musa to Fir’awn): “And that I may guide you to your Lord so that you have khashyah” (79:19)

Meaning that you fear Allaah – Mighty and Majestic is He – upon knowledge from you. Because because khashyah is fear (khawf) combined with knowledge.  Without knowledge it is just khawf.  The difference between them (i.e. between khashyah and khawf) is that khashyah is based upon knowledge.  Allaah, The Most High, said:

إِنَّمَا يَخْشَى اللَّهَ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْعُلَمَاءُ

“From His servants it is only those who have knowledge who have khashyah of Allaah” (35:28)

And from Shaikh Uthaymeen’s tafseer of the verse:

ذَلِكَ لِمَنْ خَشِيَ رَبَّهُ

“That is (the reward) for the one who has khashyah of his Lord” (98:8)

…So Khashyah is more specific than khawf.  The difference between them will become clear with the following example: When you fear someone but you don’t know if they can overpower you or not, this is khawf.  But when you fear someone and you know that they can overpower you, then this is khashyah.

Translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s Explanation

of Kitaabut Tawheed “al-Mulakh-khas”, p.108

عائشةُ: هي أُمُّ المؤمنين زوج النبيِّ

صلى الله عليه وسلم

وبنتُ أبي بكرٍ الصديقِ رضي اللهُ عنهما

وهي أفقَهُ النساءِ مطلقًا

وأفضلُ أزواجِ النبيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ما عَدَا خَديجةَ

ففي تفضِيلِهَا عليها خلافٌ

توفيت سنة 57 ه

Aishah: She is the Mother of the Believers and the wife of the Prophet

Sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam

And the daughter of Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq – (we ask that) Allaah be pleased with them both

She is the most knowledgeable (with the best understanding) of the women (in the religion) with no exception

She was the best of the wives of the Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – except for Khadijah

And some of the scholars differ over which of them is better

Some Statements from Shaikh adh-Dhafeeri’s Refutation of Muhammad al Imaam, introduced by Shaikh Fawzaan

September 7, 2015

Firstly, a reminder about what Shaikh Rabee said a year agp when he was asked about Shaikh Ubaid al Jaabiree’s declaring Muhammad al Imaam to be an innovator, to which he responded:

( http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=146223 )

“Firstly, it is obligatory upon Muhammad al Imaam to repent to Allaah from this pact”

Then he said,

“I am amazed at the one who seeks to reject the tabdee’ (declaration of one being an innovator) of Shaikh ‘Ubaid for Muhammad al Imaam, but this one doesn’t seek to reject the takfeer (declaring one to be a disbeliever) of some of the Haddaadees (extremists) and Hizbees of myself and Shaikh ‘Ubaid based upon Muhammad al Imaam’s pact”

More statements of the scholars on Muhammad al Imaam’s pact:

The following are a few sentences translated from the treatise by Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri[1] which can be downloaded from here:

http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=154275

Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan said about this treatise by Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri:

“I have examined the treatise entitled: ‘Alerting those who possess pure intellects’ by Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri – (we ask that) Allaah grants him success – and I found it to be satisfactory with regards to its subject.  So (we ask that) Allaah rewards him with good and brings about benefit by his knowledge”

(p.2 in the pdf viewer)

The following are just a few of the statements of Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri from the treatise:

“Firstly, Muhammad al Imaam’s continuing to defend the pact and work by its ratified terms until the present – along with the Yemeni and Saudi governments as well as the governments of the Gulf nations being at war with the Houthis – those (Houthis) who have broken agreements, killed Ahlus Sunnah, betrayed them numerous times and who are supported by Iran which supplies them with weapons and equipment.

“Secondly, the followers of Muhammad al Imaam misguiding the people with fabrications about the noble Shaikh Saalih bin Fawzaan al Fawzaan in saying that he approves of this pact.” (p.4 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri said:

“The unrestrictiveness of their statement (in the pact): ‘And the absence of war, mutual clashing, fighting, or fitnah no matter what the circumstances or the reasons’

“The unrestrictiveness of this shows foolishness, weakness, and cowardice.  Because it requires and necessitates a lack of fighting the Houthis no matter what they do.  Even if they fight and kill Ahlus Sunnah in all areas of Yemen, or if the (scholars and rulers) of the Muslims of Ahlus Sunnah announce a general call to arms against the Houthis, then Muhammad al Imaam will stick to the pact and won’t fight with his Muslim brothers from Ahlus Sunnah even if jihaad and fighting are considered fard ayn (an individual obligation).

“Likewise it requires that Muhammad al Imaam and whoever is under his leadership stick to this pact and this unrestricted agreement even if there occurs from the Houthis treachery and betrayal.” (p.9 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri said:

“This is what Muhammad al Imaam has made obligatory with the Houthis which is built upon this agreement which he endorsed – even up until the present.  For indeed on the first jumuah after “Decisive Storm”[2] (started) he rejected this fighting.  This fighting which was a result of the Houthis breaking and betraying their treaties and their international agreement – and he called (this fighting against the Shia Houthis) the fighting of fitnah.  And he continues to be upon this.  He emphasized this in the khutbah he gave on the 15th of Shawwal 1436H in which he portrayed the fighting which is occurring right now against the (Shia) Houthis as the fighting of fitnah.  And (he mentioned) that whoever left it was the one who had intellect and understanding – and he meant by that himself and his followers.   He mentioned texts and narrations to try to argue that, which shows that he is only someone who memorizes and transmits (the texts) without understanding them.  And that he doesn’t distinguish between the fighting of jihaad against the evil-doers and the fighting of fitnah.” (p.9 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri said:

“Seventhly, what it contains from far-reaching danger, and that is what some of Muhammad al Imaam’s followers are doing from misguiding the people through their telling lies about Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan that he supports this pact.  And from this is what has come on the website (which will not be named here) from what Uthmaan as-Saalimee and Jameel al-Haamilee have transmitted – that they showed Shaikh Fawzaan some of the terms of the pact and that he supported Muhammad al Imaam and said:

بما أنها قد وقعت انتهى الأمر

“Because it has already occurred, the affair has ended”

And that he said,

إن الشيخ محمد الإمام هو أعرف بحاله أي حال البلاد

“Indeed Shaikh Muhammad al Imaam is more knowledgeable about his situation”

And that he said,

وبما أن الشيخ محمد قد وقع على هذه الوثيقة فهو أمر مطلوب حفاظا على الدعوة والدماء والأعراض

“Because Shaikh Muhammad has signed this pact, then this is something which is desired to preserve the da’wah, the blood (of the people), and their honor”

“I (Shaikh Abdullah bin Sulfeeq adh-Dhafeeri) say: (Even) If they were truthful in their transmission, then they didn’t present to Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan the entire pact.  If they had shown Shaikh Fawzaan the entire pact along with what has become clear lately from the positions of Muhammad al Imaam regarding the “Decisive Storm” (military strikes), the Shaikh (Fawzaan) would have rejected this pact.  And how could Shaikh Fawzaan agree to its terms while it contains what it contains of calamities and misrepresentation of the (correct) beliefs?” (p.13 in the pdf viewer)

Shaikh Rabee on Saudi’s war against the Houthi Raafidhah

September 3, 2015

The following was translated from:

http://www.sahab.net/home/?p=1611

The Noble Scholar Rabee bin Umair al Madkhalee said:

All the praise is for Allaah alone and may the salaah and the salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his family, his Companions, and whoever follows his guidance.  As for what follows:

Indeed I, and every Muslim who is truthful in his religion, we direct abundant thanks to the Custodian of the two Noble Holy Masjids (in Makkah and Medinah): the King Salmaan bin Abdul ‘Azeez Aal as-Sa’ood – (we ask that) Allaah preserves him and guides his steps – due to what he has begun from directing precise military strikes against the Raafidah (Shia) who hate Islaam and the Muslims.  They (the Raafidah) are those who surpass the Jews and the Christians in warring against Islaam and the Muslims.  This is a war which they have inherited from their predecessors – the enemies of the noble Companions and (the enemies of) all who follow them (the Companions) in beliefs, statements, and actions.

And in doing this, O Custodian of the two Noble Sanctuaries, this is helping Islaam.  The Muslims will never forget this (action), nor will history.  I ask that Allaah helps you against your enemies, that He suppresses them, and that He cuts off their roots.  Indeed my Lord is The One Who hears and answers the supplication.

Likewise I ask that He, The Most High, grants success to the rulers of the Muslims who share in this honorable war that is for the purpose of safeguarding the beliefs, legislation, and rulings of Islaam – and as an obligation to their people to raise and educate them upon these tremendous fundamental principles.
