Briefly: The Sahaabee ‘Ubaadah bin as-Saamit

December 11, 2014


Translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s Explanation of Kitaabut Tawheed “al-Mulakh-khas”, p.25

عبادةُ بنُ الصامتِ: هو عبادةُ بنُ الصامتِ

بنِ قيسٍ الأنصاريُّ الخزرجيُّ

أحد النقباء بدريٌّ مشهورٌ

توفي سنة (34) ه وله (72) سنة

‘Ubaadah bin as-Saamit: He was ‘Ubaadah bin as-Saamit bin Qays, from the Ansar, from the tribe of al-Khazraj. He was one of the twelve Companions who gave the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam) the pledge on the night of the pledge1. He participated in the battle of Badr and was a well-known Companion of the Prophet2 (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam). He died in the year 34 after the Hijrah at the age of 72

(end of translation)

Two ahaadeeth about him from Saheeh Bukhari (Book of the Merits of the Ansar, narrated by ‘Ubaadah – radiallaahu anhu) taken from :

Hadeeth #1: I was one of the Naqibs who gave the (‘Aqaba) pledge of allegiance to Allah’s Apostle . We gave the pledge of allegiance to him that we would not worship anything other than Allah [God, The Creator], would not steal, would not commit illegal sexual intercourse, would not kill a person whose killing Allah has made illegal except rightfully, would not rob each other, and we would not be promised Paradise jf we did the above sins, then if we committed one of the above sins, Allah will give His Judgment concerning it.

Hadeeth #2: Who had taken part in the battle of Badr with Allah’s Apostle and had been amongst his companions on the night of Al-‘Aqaba Pledge: Allah’s Apostle, surrounded by a group of his companions said, “Come along and give me the pledge of allegiance that you will not worship anything besides Allah, will not steal, will not commit illegal sexual intercourse will not kill your children, will not utter; slander, invented by yourself, and will not disobey me if I order you to do something good. Whoever among you will respect and fulfill this pledge, will be rewarded by Allah. And if one of you commits any of these sins and is punished in this world then that will be his expiation for it, and if one of you commits any of these sins and Allah screens his sin, then his matter, will rest with Allah: If He will, He will punish him and if He will,. He will excuse him.” So I gave the pledge of allegiance to him for these conditions.

Refutations of Tahir Wyatt

August 1, 2014



Shaikh Rabee on Tahir Wyatt 3 years ago:

“After I studied this matter, I found that he (i.e. Tahir Wyatt) was refuting Salafees in the West and harming them, and he would accompany those who were splitting the ranks of the Salafees. And recently some articles have been posted on Kulasalafiyyeen[1] relating to this matter. These things are an indication of something. The next matter is that he refused to speak about Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee, but his soul allows him to rebuke Salafees. How is it easy for him to attack Salafees here and there and he finds it difficult to speak a word of truth about Abul-Hasan al-Ma`ribee.  If he (i.e. Tahir Wyatt) was a Salafee, then this would not be his condition.


Under the advice of some of the Scholars, 3 years ago, some students wrote a comprehensive response to Tahir Wyatt, Muhammad Akhtar Chaudry, and Nadir Ahmed unveiling the reality of and fatwa-online (most articles can be downloaded at this link):



More recently, the student Abu Hafsah Khashif Khan on Tahir Wyatt:





The Ruling on Saying صُدْفَة “sudfah” (coincidence)

April 17, 2014


The following question was posed to the Eminent Scholar Saalih Fawzaan

Arabic audio for the Q & A:

Arabic text1:

sudfah text

Q: Noble Shaikh, (we ask that) Allaah grant you success, is the following statement permissible: “I met this person by coincidence” when it was a meeting without a prior appointment?

A: When a person intends by sudfah (coincidence): without a prior appointment, then there is no harm in this. As for when a person intends by sudfah (coincidence) that this was something that was not already decreed (by Allaah) in a previous decree, then this is not permissible. This is rejection of qadr (divine predecree). However, most of the Muslims don’t mean this, they don’t mean the rejection of qadr. They mean by sudfah (coincidence) that they weren’t expecting it and that there was no previous agreement.

Shaikh Albaanee was asked2 about saying “sudfah”, specifically the expression:

حدث هذا صدفة

‘This happened by coincidence.’

and part of his reply was:

So if he intends by sudfah (coincidence) that there is no qadr (divine pre-decree), then he has disbelieved….As for when he intends by it that all of this is by the command of Allaah and His decree then there is nothing wrong with it.”

3 ahaadeeth on the virtues of Madinah

July 28, 2013

These ahaadeeth were some of the ahaadeeth mentioned by Shaikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee (who has been praised by Shaikh Muhammad bin Haadee here: ) in a recorded lecture recently played here:



The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said:



إنَّ إبراهيمَ حرَّم مكةَ ، و دعا لها

و إنِّي حرَّمتُ المدينةَ ، كما حرَّم إبراهيمُ مكةَ

و دعوتُ لها في مُدِّها و صاعِها مثلَ ما دعا إبراهيمُ لمكةَ


Indeed Ibraheem (Abraham) made Makkah a sanctuary and made du’a for it.  And indeed I have made Madeenah a sanctuary as Ibraheem made Makkah a sanctuary.  And I have made dua for it (Madeenah) for its Mudd and its Saa’ just like Ibraheem made du’a for Makkah.”


Shaikh Albaani declared it Sahih in Sahih al Jaami’ (1523), narrated by Abdullah bin Zaid






من دخل مسجدَنا هذا ليتعلَّمَ خيرًا أو ليُعلِّمَه ؛

كان كالمجاهدِ في سبيلِ اللهِ ،

ومن دخله لغيرِ ذلك ؛

كان كالنَّاظرِ إلى ما ليس له


Whoever enters this masjid of ours (the Prophet’s – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – masjid in Madinah) to either learn good or teach it, is like a Mujaahid in the way of Allah.  And whoever enters it for other than that is like one who looks at what doesn’t belong to him.”


Shaikh Albaani declared it Hasan (good) in Sahih al Mawaarid,(69), narrated by Abu Hurairah










اللَّهمَّ حبِّبْ إلينا المدينةَ كما حبَّبتَ إلينا مَكَّةَ أو أشدَّ

وانقل حُمَّاها إلى الجحفةِ

اللَّهمَّ بارِك لنا في مدِّنا وصاعِنا



“O Allah! Make us love medina as You made us love Mecca, or more, and transfer the fever that is in it, to Al-Juhfa. O Allah! Bless our Mudd and our Saa’ (kinds of measures).”

Sahih Bukhari, Book of Du’a (Da’waat), narrated by Aishah


Shaikh Ibn Baz on Darwin’s Theory

July 7, 2013



The following translated from:



Question: It is known that some of the people think that the their (man’s) origin is an animal – in agreement with the western theory – so what do you have to say about that?




Answer (by Shaikh Bin Baz):

Darwin’s theory says that the origin of mankind is monkeys and that the son of Adam (mankind) is a speaking animal and that all of us are animals. But Allah created life for the son of Adam and gave him an intellect and (eloquent) speech.  However, this filthy theory is false according to the consensus of the Scholars.  The monkeys are a (separate) species from the species, the dogs are a (separate) species from the species, the pigs are a (separate) species from the species, the cats are a (separate) species from the species, and likewise are the lions, tigers, leopards, and other than them (i.e. all are separate species).  As for man, then he is a separate creature with intelligence and speech whom Allah created from a despised fluid.  And our father is Adam – peace be upon him – Allah created him from clay.  So he is a separate creature and a species from the (different) established species – and they are the children of Adam.  The jinn are also an established species – created from a smokeless flame of fire.  And every type of animal/insect is an established species (community) until even the ants are a species.




(end of first article)




The following translated from:



Question: I always hear and read that man was a monkey in the beginning, then he passed through stages and changed until the modern man that we know today.  Is this logical or not?  And are the origins (of man) a monkey – meaning the origins of the formation of its (the monkey’s) body are the same origins of the formations of man’s?  Benefit us, (we ask that) Allah reward you with good.





Answer (by Shaikh Ibn Baz):

(With the Name of Allah (God, The Creator), The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy


Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, his Companions, and whoever follows his guidance.  As for what follows:


This statement that the questioner mentioned is rejected and false.  It opposes the Book of Allah – Exalted and Lofty is He – and the Sunnah of the Messenger – (we ask that) Allah exalt him and raise his rank – and it opposes the consensus of the Salaf of the ummah. And this statement has become known from the one called Darwin – and he is a liar in what he says. 


Rather, the origin of man – his origin is known.  His origin is not a monkey, nor other than a monkey.  Rather, he is man – upright, intelligent – Allah (God, The Creator) created him from clay (water and soil), from earth.  That is our father – Adam – peace be upon him – Allah created him from earth (soil).



As Allah – Exalted and Lofty is He – said (translated):


And indeed We created man (Adam) out of an extract of clay (water and earth).” (Al-Mu’minun 23:12)1


He is created from this soil.  Allah created him with his image – his height was sixty cubits (90 feet) – 60 cubits tall.  Then the creation began to decrease (in height) until now….So his (Adam’s) children are like him – created in the form of their father (Adam). They have hearing, they have sight, they have intellects, and they have the stature that you see today  – they walk on their legs.  They speak, hear, see, and eat with their hands…



They aren’t in the shape of monkeys, nor the form of monkeys.  They (people) have a specific form which befits them.  And likewise is every species (community): 


The monkeys are a separate species


The pigs are a separate species


Likewise are the dogs, donkeys, cats, and the species other than them


There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An’am 6:38)”2


These species (communities) – all of them will be gathered before Allah and collected together on the Day of Resurrection – some of them will give detailed accounts about others



Then it will be said to them (the animals): Be dirt!


So they will become dirt (soil) – except for the Jinn and Mankind – theirs is a different situation.  They will be called to account and recompensed for their actions.  So whoever obeyed his Lord (worshiping only Him as a Muslim) then he (or she) will go to Paradise.  And whoever disbelieved in his Lord (by worshiping others with Him or disbelieving in His existence, for example) then he (or she) will go to the fire.


As for these animals, then they are separate species. The monkeys are a separate species which has its own essential nature, its own origin, its own characteristics. And likewise are the pigs, dogs, donkeys, camels, cows, and sheep. And likewise the species (each) have their (different) forms and distinct characteristics which Allah has created for it – He is Free from all deficiencies and defects – and He is The Most Wise, The All-Knowing. And He sees best the details….



The details of their structures (make-ups) – He has more insight into this and knows it better (than everyone) – He is The Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects.  But it is obligatory that the servant (the human being) believes that the creation of Adam was not like the  creation of monkeys. And that the origin of Adam is the same origin which he is upon today – his origin was not a monkey, nor other than that.  Rather, he is man, upright in his form….


He possesses intellect, he possesses hearing, he possesses sight, he possesses the known senses like smelling, touch, taste, and other than that from what Allah created him with.  So the statement that his origin is a monkey is a rejected statement, a false statement. And if it were said that the one who said this was a kaafir, it would be a well-founded statement. For what is most apparent – and Allah knows best – is that the one who says this while knowing what the legislation (Quran and Sunnah) has brought, then he is a disbeliever because he has belied Allah and His Messenger and he has belied the Book of Allah – He is The Most High and Free from all deficiencies and defects.
