THE VOLUNTARY PRAYERS FROM SUNAN ABI dAWUD

EXPLAINED BY

SHEIKH MUHAMMAD SHAMS-UL-HAQ AZIMABADI [1329H]

Introduction

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The first thing for which a person will be brought to account on the Day of Resurrection will be his prayer. If it is complete, then the voluntary (prayers) will also be recorded for him (as an increase). If it is not complete then Allah will say to His angels: ‘Look and see whether you find any voluntary prayers for My slave, and take them to make up what is lacking from his obligatory prayers.’ Then all his deeds will be reckoned in like manner.”[1]

This hadith informs that if we fall short in our obligatory prayers then we had better have some voluntary prayers in the account to help complete the deficient parts of our prayers. Any Muslim who ONLY relies on his voluntary prayers to be counted for on the Day of Judgement is placing his soul at risk.

In another narration the Prophet (ﷺ)said “If anyone prays in a day and in a night twelve rak’ahs voluntarily (supererogatory prayer), a house will be built from him in Paradise on account of these (rak’ahs).”[2]

This is another encouragement for us to strive in maintaining the voluntary prayers. All we need to do is add a few extra minutes of praying to our daily schedule to earn this reward. Imam Abu Dawud has complied the most comprehensive collection of hadith on this subject. Since this topic is extremely important, I felt the need to embark on it by translating this chapter with the explanation from Sheikh Muhammed Azimabadi.

Too many times we notice Muslims rushing through the prayer, wasting time between the Athan and the Iqamah, or just rushing out the masjid as soon as the prayer has concluded. Hopefully, this book will educate us about the importance of adding some extra prayers to our everyday life.

I ask Allah to allow this book to weigh in on my scale of good deeds on the Day of Resurrection. I pray that this book is an aide to help Muslims increase the rewards for their prayers on the Day of Judgement.

THE RUDIMENTS OF JUMUAH

FROM IMAM AT -TIRMITHI’S COLLECTION

THE RUDIMENTS OF

JUMUAH

FROM IMAM AT -TIRMITHI’S COLLECTION-

EXPLAINED BYSHAIKH MUHAMMAD ABDUR-RAHMAN MUBARAKPURI[1353H]

Introduction

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “We are the last to come, but will be the foremost on the Day of Resurrection, though the former nations were given the Scriptures before us. Then, this was their day (i.e Friday) that was prescribed for them, but they differed about it. For that reason, Allah gave us the guidance for it and all the other people are behind us in this respect: The Jews holy day is tomorrow and the Christians is the day after tomorrow.[1]

This hadith teaches us that Allah gave us superiority to other nations in worshipping Him on the right day of the week. With that being the case we as Muslims must appreciate this day as it should be valued. This includes knowing what to do and what to avoid on a Friday, from sunset to sunset. Every time Ramadan and Hajj come around Muslims prepare themselves, and by the time the two yearly Eids come the Muslims are ready. Unfortunately, some Muslims neglect the weekly Eid. Since I have been the teacher at Masjid Nu’man ibn Thabit in Qatar, I notice that Muslims regularly come late, dress unsuitably, and talk during the Khutbah. After the Covid-19 crisis and the masjid reopened this only got worse.

For that reason, I felt the need to revive the spirit of Jumu’ah by putting together a comprehensive guide for all Muslims to learn and understand the significant importance of this day. This book comes from Imam At-Tirmithi’s comprehensive collection of hadith, known as Jami’ At-Tirmithi. There are a total of 29 hadith in this book with the explanation done by Shaikh Muhammad Abdur-Rahman Mubarkpuri[1353H]. After those chapters I added an extra 9 from a collection of essays I have done over the last several years; with explanations from various scholars.

This book has been written and made easy for every Muslim to read and benefit from. This was another one of my objectives in working on this book. Along with this then the greatest objective and goal is the acceptance of it by Allah. I pray and hope this books revives the lost love of Jumu’ah in hearts of those who read it.

The Cult Fallacy: Deconstructing the Strategy

The Cult Fallacy: Deconstructing the Strategy

 and Propaganda of the Neo Salafy Cult Movement

Introduction

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

What makes a cult? In this book you will learn everything you need to know to identify if you, or a loved one are part of the Neo Salafy cult movement. The specifics of their manipulation, bullying and mind-control tactics are outlined. Along with this their propaganda, belief system, and various inconsistencies are highlighted. The Neo Salafy Cult has become drastically weakened due to their inability to reply to their errors, or just ignore them. Since their faults are vividly described in this book you will be armed with a better understanding of what orthodox Islam is versus a Cult.

The Cult Fallacy: Deconstructing the Strategy and Propaganda of the Neo Salafy Cult Movement is a collection of 4 essays which are detailed, supported by evidences and facts to tackle the cult’s movement. The case study began in 2010 and was concluded in 2018. Although the case was closed and many people left the movement, yet some still remained behind and others are joining being unaware of the real plot and the agenda of this group. Over a 30-year period this cult’s movement has destroyed communities, lives, and wrecked families. Attached to this group is an alarming rate of apostasy from Islam itself for some, while other people have gone to other extremes of joining other cults outside of Islam.

Since the awareness campaign began in 2014, there has been a large amount of people who are able to completely identify them as a cult. This happened after they became aware of and read the firm literature describing the characteristics of a cult. Hence, other works might have remained undisclosed to a few. For that reason, I decided to place everything in one book for a simple reference point. At the end of this book there are some of the countless testimonies I have collected over the years of some people who left the cult, and then went on to become better human beings in society and achieve higher levels education, and stability in their life. I ask Allah to save us, our spouses and our children from being misled by doubts and desires.

Heart Softeners by Imam Muslim

Heart Softeners by Imam Muslim explained by Ash-Sheikh Abdul Aziz Ar-Rajhi

Forward

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

All praises belong to Allah the Most High and May His peace and blessings shower on the Prophet (ﷺ), his companions and everyone who follows their path until the Day of Judgment.  Undoubtingly we are living in some strange and trying times. Since 2020 began there have been rumours of wars, financial crisis, mass unemployment and a pandemic. In times like these, we can get sidetracked and  lose sight of our purpose in this world. A solution to alleviate the stress and worries of a bleak future can be found in this book of heart softeners taken Imam Muslim’s collection. Inside of his collection, there are discussions, on how to cope with this world’s tests, fear of going hungry, what the Son of Adam takes from  this World and how to be patient with a few Possessions in this life. More importantly, the method of how to escape extreme difficulty is demonstrated.

Imam Al-Munthiri’s condensed version of Sahih Muslim for this chapter was the primary reference I used along with the explanation of Ash-Shiekh Abdul Aziz Ar-Rajhi (May Allah preserve him.)  If you have read and  learned from Ash-Shariah Company’s print of Heart Softeners taken from Al-Bukhari’s collection with commentary from Al-Imam Al-Uthaymeen, then we are quite confident that you will find this an additional treasure to add to your shelves.

I ask Allah the Most High to allow this small effort of mine to help the Muslims in this life and support me entering Jannah in the next life.

The Nuances of Human Sexuality in Light of the Quran and the Sunnah

This book contains topics that are often considered
among some Muslims as taboo topics, so it’s for that reason they aren’t frequently
addressed and discussed. Inside this book I have compiled the following topics:
male and female masturbation in Islam, Aphrodisiacs in Islam, Oral Sex in
Islam, the Sunnah of a Man Bathing with His Spouse, Benefits of Kissing, and The
Cure for Porn Addiction. Each topic is discussed in detail, and it debates the
views of the great scholars in Islam. These topics all relate to the Human
sexuality in today’s World.

Humans express and involve themselves sexually in many
different ways. They could be biotic, physical, emotional, social, or
spiritual. Human sexuality can affect a person’s sexual orientation thus
affecting the way the person acts in society toward others, as well as his
spiritual relationship with his Lord. For this reason, these topics define the
Islamic bounds and guidelines of these acts, according to the Quran and the
Sunnah.

“The Nuances of Human Sexuality in Light of the Quran
and the Sunnah,” presents non-biased views and facts and opinions that can
serve as a light in dark times. I pray that these researched topics help the
Muslims in their society and in their relationships.

40 Hadeeth on Abandoned Sunnan

40 Hadeeth on Abandoned Sunnan

 

Introduction

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

‘Umar bin Al-Khattab said:  I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) say, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for.”

These collections of Hadeeth are some of the authentic narrations that mention the acts of Sunnah which the Prophet [ﷺ] did say, and we are therefore advised to follow. Each hadeeth has a brief commentary from scholars past or present. This project was something I started several years ago when I noticed people turning away from the Sunnah and following the regular norm, or when I would do certain acts they’d question me and ask me why I was doing certain actions.

The most important thing any Muslim can do daily is to worship Allah according to the Sunnah of Muhammad in his speech and actions. Doing this earns the love of Allah. He said: Say if you love Allah then follow me and then Allah will love you and forgive you for your sins.

Thu Nun Al-Misri said: A sign that shows that a person loves Allah is when he follows His beloved Prophet in his manners, actions, commands, and traditions.

Hasan Al-Basri said: A sign that a servant loves the Prophet is when he follows his Sunnah.

Reviving the lost Sunnah of the Prophet is a rewarding task for any Muslim, especially today, in a time where the Sunnah is practically unheard of or spoken about. Abdullah ibn Ad-Daylamee said, “The first thing to leave the religion is the Sunnah. This religion will weaken Sunah by Sunah the same way rope slackens, knot by knot.

Today I encourage myself and the readers of this book to revive the Sunnah of the Prophet by sharing the hadeeth mentioned with their families, friends, and community in hopes of Allah’s reward and the spread of Islam. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: The person who introduced some good practice in Islam which was followed after him (by people) would be assured of a reward like one who followed it, without their rewards being diminished in any respect. And the person who introduced some evil practice in Islam which had been followed subsequently (by others), he would be required to bear the burden like that of one who followed this (evil practice) without theirs being diminished in any respect.

Heart Softeners from Sahih Al-Bukhari- Explained By Sh. Al-Uthaymeen

Heart Softeners from Sahih Al-Bukhari- Explained By Sh. Al-Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Foreword

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate. Praise to the One Who completed this religion and sent guidance through His Messenger salAllahu ’alayhi wa sallam. To begin:

Every so often our daily lives preoccupy us and turn us away from Allah’s promise. When we walk out of our homes, turn on the radio, TV, or Internet, we are distracted by the evils we see and hear. As a result of immorality and unashamed disobedience, our hearts grow hard and distant from Allah and His Messenger’s call. We know the message of Islam is true, but we are weak due to the rigidity of our heart, spirit, and mind. In times like these, we need something to penetrate that stiffness. We need a remedy to soften that hardness and the inflexibility of our choices.

Disunity and harshness afflict this Ummah today. Consequently, many people have turned away from the brotherhood, caring, and even Islam itself. Their hearts have transformed into dwellings of complete hatred for a sinner, disdain toward the weak Muslim, and jealousy of their successful brother or sister.

I have selected some ahaadeeth from the most authentic book after the Qur’aan to soften the hearts in our chests. I used Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al-’Uthaymeen’s explanations for the ahaadeeth selected. The ahaadeeth selected come from a book in Imam Al-Bukhari’s collection titled Riqaq: Heart Softeners. This chapter brings tears to one’s eyes, fear to one’s mind, and most importantly it diminishes the rigidity in one’s heart. I ask Allah to make the translation and compilation solely for His pleasure. I pray to Allah for acceptance of this deed and His mercy in the Hereafter.

Sahih Al-Bukhari ” The Book of Faith “

Sahih Al-Bukhari ” The Book of Faith ” Explained by Shaikh Abdul Aziz Ar-Rajhi

 

 Available on Amazon.com

 Foreword

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

All Praises belong to Allah Lord of The Worlds. We Ask Allah for His Mercy and Forgiveness and We ask Him to send His Peace and Blessings on the final last Messenger.

Imam Al-Bukhari began his collection of Sahih Hadith with the chapter of Revelation since this is where Islam began. Allah sent Muhammad as the seal of the Messengers and gave him legislation. It’s through Revelation that Allah guides people from darkness to light. Following this Imam Al-Bukhari mentioned the book of Iman(faith); as it is the foundation and the principle that actions are built on. There’s no action without intention and no actions without faith. The greatest part of Revelation is the belief in Allah and His Messenger.

The origin of Iman is the affirmation in the heart. This is connected with actions in Heart and on the body. For that reason, Imam Al-Bukhari said: “Faith is speech and actions”. This is the correct view as proven from the various texts he mentioned in this chapter. Imam Al-Bukhari mentioned numerous chapters in this book that prove faith must be accompanied with speech and actions. This is the belief of Ahlus Sunnah. Unlike the Murji’a who believe that actions aren’t included in Iman and this is incorrect. There are about 39 chapters in this book  that mention Allah made actions a part of Imam.

Imam Al-Bukhari in Kitabul Imam detailed and defined the four schools of thought about Iman;

1-   Al-Khawarij and the Mu’tazilah who believe actions are a part of faith, and the Khawariji believe the major sinners are in Hell.

2-   The Mu’tazilah don’t consider the major sinners to have gone apostate.

3-   The Murji’a believe that as long as person acknowledges and believes in Allah then there’s no need for actions.

4-   Ahlus Sunnah believes actions are necessary for faith and are a part of it.

Imam Al-Bukhari’s collection is considered the most authentic book of Hadith, so reading the various books from it serve as an educational reference for any Muslim. The explanations for these narrations are referenced with numbers for each point. I have taken Ash- Shaykh Abdul Aziz’s Ar-Rajhi’s explanation for each hadith and idea and numbered it from 1- 139 making easy for the reader to follow and refer back to anytime they want or need to.

I pray and ask Allah to accept this small service to the Ummah and to forgive me for my sins.
