What would your opinion be about the Saudi rulers?

  • “If I had one supplication that was going to be answered I would make it for the ruler (imâm), for the wellbeing and righteousness of the imâm means wellbeing for the land and its people.” - Fuḍayl ibn Iyāḍ [Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa in his biography of Al-Fudayl b. ‘Ayyâd]

    Translated by: Owais Al-Hashimi

  • “If you see a man supplicating against the ruler, know that he is a heretic (sahib hawâ), and if you see a man supplicating for the ruler, know that he is a Sunni – inshâ Allâh.” - Imam Al-Barbahārī [Sharhus-Sunnah p113, 114]

  • “If the people turned to Allaah when afflicted with something from their (unjust) ruler, it will not be long before Allaah takes him away from them; but they turn towards their swords.  By Allaah! They have never brought about good on a single day.” - Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī [Seeratus Salaf As-Saaleh by: Imaam Ismaaeel Bin Muhammad Bin Fadl Al-Asbahaanee: Chapter: A mention of those who followed the companions in righteousness]

  • “I said to Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa): ”Should I command the (Muslim) Ruler with good and forbid him from evil?” He (Ibn Abbaas) said: ”If you fear that he will kill you, then do not (do so).” I repeated the same (question), so he (Ibn Abbaas) repeated the same (answer). Then I repeated the same (question), so he (Ibn Abbaas) repeated the same (answer) and said: ”If you have to do that, then it should be between you and him (i.e. in private).” - Saīd ibn Jubayr [Jāmi’ Al-‘Ulūm Wal-Hikam Page 338]

“No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself for the outcome of all affairs is determined by Allah’s Decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come on your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee.” (Umar ibn al-Khattab r.a)

Absolutely LOVE these quotes!!

The thing about imaan is, you have to work for it. It’s one thing to make du'a for Allah to increase your Imaan, and it’s another to put the effort in.

It’s like working out. If you’re going to wish to get fit and healthy but sit there and eat cake, you’re just going to get fat. But when you go to the gym, work out and eat healthy, you’re going to see results. It may take long, but in the long run, it’s worth it.

And Imaan is just like that. Make du'a but work to increase your Imaan and Allah will open your heart to love Him and be obedient towards Him. For He has mentioned in the Qur'an:

إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُواْ مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ

“Indeed Allah will not change the condition of a people, until they change what is in themselves.”

[13:11]

Don’t plant the seed and leave it, water it and make it grow.

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا ،
عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :
( إِذَا تَمَنَّى أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيُكْثِرْ ، فَإِنَّمَا يَسْأَلُ رَبَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ ).
