Day 16: 99 Names of Allah:  Al-Wahhab (الوهاب) The Giver of All

He sustains us, he gave us this Earth, this life, this test

Inshallah we will pass it, and go on to receive something even greater from the giver of all. La ilaha ilallah muhammadur rasoolallah. 

BEIRUT — The dramatic arrival of Da’ish (ISIS) on the stage of Iraq has shocked many in the West. Many have been perplexed — and horrified — by its violence and its evident magnetism for Sunni youth. But more than this, they find Saudi Arabia’s ambivalence in the face of this manifestation both troubling and inexplicable, wondering, “Don’t the Saudis understand that ISIS threatens them, too?”

It appears — even now — that Saudi Arabia’s ruling elite is divided. Some applaud that ISIS is fighting Iranian Shiite “fire” with Sunni “fire”; that a new Sunni state is taking shape at the very heart of what they regard as a historical Sunni patrimony; and they are drawn by Da’ish’s strict Salafist ideology.

Other Saudis are more fearful, and recall the history of the revolt against Abd-al Aziz by the Wahhabist Ikhwan (Disclaimer: this Ikhwan has nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood Ikhwan — please note, all further references hereafter are to the Wahhabist Ikhwan, and not to the Muslim Brotherhood Ikhwan), but which nearly imploded Wahhabism and the al-Saud in the late 1920s.

Many Saudis are deeply disturbed by the radical doctrines of Da’ish (ISIS) — and are beginning to question some aspects of Saudi Arabia’s direction and discourse.

اول حفلة

برغم ان انا لسه مكملتش 6 شهور ع وجودي ف تمبلر ورغم ان مليش صداقات هنا بحكم طبيعتي بس اكتر حاجة مخلياني متمسك بيه هي الروح الحلوه اللي لقتها هنا .. روح بتختلف عن اي روح ممكن تلاقيها حواليك ف الواقع حتى ..
الناس ال هنا بكل صفاتهم وشخصيتهم المختلفه تحسهم بيقولوك “انسى العالم جوه عالم تمبلر” .. “عالمنا احنا وبس”
اتعلمت منهم حاجات كتير .. واكتر حاجة اتعلمتها هنا ان انا بدات اكتشف نفسي من جديد .. والطاقه اللي جوانا ومستخبيه وبتطلع في المكان والوقت الصح برغم كل البؤس ال ممكن تشوفوه حواليك لكن بمجرد ساعه وسطهم هنا .. وسط العالم ال احنا بنصنعه .. والنجاح ال ممكن نشوفه بايدينا بلمسه بلوج  .. او انك ازاي تهون على روح شخص انت متعرفوش ..

كل حفلة وانت طيبين .. ربنا يجعلها سنه جديده تحققوا فيها 365 حلم
شكرا أل تمبلر
في حب 

Beneficial Blog

I came across this blog that’s dedicated to 'Books of Knowledge’. From what I know, the brother/sister will be first going the fundamentals of Tawhid with the first book, Kitab at-Tawhid by Imam Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab (rahimahullaah). So whomever wants to increase their knowledge about Allah the easy way (by the will of Allah), then I suggest you follow www.kitabs-of-ilm.tumblr.com .

May Allah make it beneficial for us all. Ameen.

The Wahhababi

If Wahhabism means Da’wah to the Qur’ān and Sunnah… and holding on to the foundations, guidance, and understanding of As-Salaf As-Sālih (the Pious Predecessors)… and forsaking biasness towards a Math’hab… as the Da’wah of the Shaykh was… Then, yes! I am a Wahhabist!

If Wahhabism means waging Jihād (Holy War) against the oppressive Tawāghīt (false governments which have claimed to be gods)… and to wage Jihād against shirk and the pagans… as the Da’wah of the Shaykh was… Then, yes! I am a Wahhabist!

If Wahhabism means the middle-path… not leaning towards extremism nor deficiency… … as the Da’wah of the Shaykh was… Then, yes! I am a Wahhabist!

Indeed I have pondered over the situation of those who attack the Shaykh and his Da’wah, and I found them to be:

a) Either a kāfir (infidel, disbeliever)

b) Or a Shī’ī, Rāfidhī

c) Or an extremist Sūfī

d) Or a deviant heretic

e) Or a jāhil (ignorant) who repeats what he hears without knowing anything regarding the Shaykh and his Da’wah.

And this is an evil wretchedness… destroyed is the one who is satisfied of standing there (against the Da’wah of Tawhīd), or being from the numbers of those people… or even merely increases their numbers by anything whatsoever!

What negates one's Islam

Shaikh-ul-Islam Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab stated, “Know that ten matters negate one’s Islam. [They are:]

First, associating partners in the worship of Allah. Allah says, “Verily, Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners in worship with Him, but He forgives whom He pleases other sins than that” (al-Nisa 116).
Allah also says, “Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the wrongdoers, there are no helpers” (al-Maidah 72).
Included in this category of deeds is sacrificing animals for the sake of jinn or graves.

Second, whoever sets up an intermediary between himself and Allah, whom he prays to, seeks intercession from and puts his reliance in, has blasphemed according to the consensus of the scholars.

Third, whoever does not consider the polytheists as disbelievers or whoever has doubt concerning their disbelief or whoever considers their way as correct has committed an act of disbelief himself.

Fourth, if a person believes that some guidance other than the guidance of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is more complete than his or that another’s judgment is better than the Prophet’s, [then that person has committed an act of disbelief]. This would be like the one who prefers the rule and law of false gods [be they human or otherwise] over the Prophet’s rule and law. This position is one of disbelief.

Fifth, whoever dislikes anything the Prophet (peace be upon him) brought, even if he acts by it, has committed an act of disbelief.

Sixth, whoever ridicules or jokes about any part of the religion of the Messenger (peace be upon him) or its rewards or its punishments, has committed an act of disbelief. The evidence for this is in the Words of Allah, “Say: Was it Allah, or His signs or His Messenger that you were mocking? Make no excuse, you have disbelieved after you had believed.” (al-Tauba 65-66).

Seventh, the performing of magic [is an act of disbelief], this includes those magical incantations that make one love or hate another person. Whoever performs them or is pleased with them has committed an act of disbelief. Allah says in the Quran, “But neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) until they had said, ‘We are only for trial, so disbelieve not [by learning such magic from us]”’ (al-Baqara 102).

Eighth, assisting and supporting the polytheists against the Muslims [is also a type of disbelief ]. The proof for this is in Allah’s statement,
"And if any among you takes them [the Jews and Christians] as helpers and protectors, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are wrongdoing” (al- Maida 51).

Ninth, if a person believes that some people are permitted to be free of the Law of Muhammad (peace be upon him), in the same way that Khidr was free of the law of Moses (peace be upon him), then that person is a disbeliever.

Tenth, turning away from the religion of Allah, not learning it or applying it, [is also a form of disbelief ]. The evidence for this is Allah’s saying,
"And who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the signs of his Lord, then he turns aside therefrom? Verily, We shall exact retribution from the sinners “ (al-Sajdah 22).

"There is no difference with respect to all of the above whether the act is done jokingly, seriously or out of fear. The only exception is one who is coerced. All of them are from the greater of the dangerous acts and they are also among the most common in occurrence. A Muslim must be aware of them and fear for himself concerning such actions. We seek refuge in Allah from that which brings about His anger and the painfulness of His punishment

Islamvermont.com: In case some have committed any of the sins mentioned above, they should sincerely repent for their sins and ask Allah for forgiveness, and never commit same.

We as Muslims need to educate ourselves of these matters, so that we do not commit such sins.

"When a person is prevented from something, it becomes a gift bestowed on him, while whoever busied himself with what was bestowed upon him, it becomes a prevention for him (from the reward of the Hereafter). What He, Most Glorified, Most High requires of us is that we be upright and take the Path which leads to Him; and He informed us that this desire cannot be achieved until a person wills as Allaah wills, as He, Most High says:

||| وَمَا تَشَآءُونَ إِلَّآ أَن يَشَآءَ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ ||| 

'And you cannot will unless (it be) that Allaah wills - the Lord of the 'Alameen (mankind, jinn, and all that exists).'

Qur’aan Surah at-Takweer (81) verse 29.
