Let her remember that one day she will depart from this life. There will come a day when she, along with her beautiful body, her tempting good looks, her adorning of herself, and her tribulation of men will be placed in a hole, dirt will be heaved on her, worms will eat her; her beauty and glamour will leave her, and she will be in that hole, dependent upon her actions and shackled to what she put forth in this life.

wallahi Shaykh Sulayman Ruhaylee حفظه الله has one of the nicest smiles تبارك الله. Every time I see him smiling in his lectures online I cannot help but smile myself. May Allah ta’ala protect him and preserve him.

translation & summary of the above video by Najeeb al-Anjeleesi:

Sheikh Sulaymaan Ar Ruhayli said, “That which I have pointed out to you, then undoubtedly, it is occurring among some salafi youth that they restrict themselves to some specific scholars, and they hold the opinion that others besides them are not to be referred. From what I’ve heard from some youth is that Sheikh Salih Al Fawzan is not referred to, in affairs of minhaj. Sheikh Salih As Suhaymi is not referred to in affairs of minhaj. Sheikh Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad is not referred to in affairs of minhaj. Undoubtedly, this is a mistake, no doubt it’s a form of hizbiyyah, it’s a form of following one’s desires, and it is befitting that we alert them about this, and that they avoid it.”

SUNAN AN-NASA'I , The Book of Mensturation and Istihadah : 21

Narrated ‘It was narrated that Anas said:

“When one of their womenfolk menstruated, the Jews would not eat or drink with them, or mix with them in their houses. They (the Companions) asked the Prophet of Allah () about that, and Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed the Ayah: They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: "That is an Adha (a harmful thing).[2] So the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) commanded them to eat and drink with them (menstruating women) and to mix them in their houses, and to do everything with them except intercourse. The Jews said: 'The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) does not leave anything of our affairs except he goes against it.’ Usaid bin Hudair and 'Abbad bin Bishr went and told the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and they said: 'Should we have intercourse with them when they are menstruating?’ The expression of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) changed greatly until we thought he was angry with them, and they left. Then the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) received a gift of milk, so he sent someone to bring them back and he gave them some to drink, so we knew that he was not angry with them.” [1] Al-Baqarah 2:222 [2] Al-Baqarah 2:222

Book 3, Hadith 21

“Let her remember that one day she will depart from this life. There will come a day when she, along with her beautiful body, her tempting good looks, her adorning of herself, and her tribulation of men will be placed in a hole, dirt will be heaved on her, and worms will eat her; her beauty and glamour will leave her, and she will be in that hole, dependant upon her actions and shackled to what she put forth in this life.

There were women before her who lived in castles, then they lived in graves wherein there were petrifying conditions, heads detached from bodies, and eyes hanging on cheeks. So, let the Muslim woman fear Allaah and prepare for this day it’s proper preparation.”
