An Insight into The Realm of Jinns and Magic – Shaykh ‘Abdul’Azeez al-Bura’ee – Must listen!

2. To possess the human being.

In this case, Allaah has legislated for us ruqya according to the Shari’ah. It is upon us to say the legislated dhikr from what is known and by the Permission of Allaah, we will be protected and not have to suffer from being touched by the shaytaan. If Allaah destined for you that you be touched by the shaytaan then you must strive hard in reciting as much of the Qur’aan as you can, increase in du’a to Allaah, make istighfar, and it is a must upon you to say ‘SubhanAllaah, Alhamdulillaah, Allaahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha ill Allaah’ as much as you can.

3. To affect the human being by way of sihr (magic).

The only way to treat yourself from magic is with the treatment of ruqya as found in the Shari’ah and the supplications that have been legislated from the Qur’aan and Sunnah. It is NOT PERMISSIBLE to go back to a magician in order to get rid of the magic that has been done to you. We must return to Allaah and never ever to a magician even if some people have said it is permissible to do so. Even if you were to die while still suffering from the sickness of possession or sihr then it is for you to die upon Tawheed while you are still ill rather than to die upon shirk or kufr.

If you are not able to make ruqya upon yourself there is no harm if you take ruqya from one who is from the saaliheen whether that person made ruqya upon you directly or recited upon some water or some food for you to eat or drink.

The Shaykh then went on to comment on some of the benefits of performing ruqya for another Muslim and mentioned that this act of performing ruqya for another person not only benefits the one who is being treated but also the one performing the ruqya.

Another point of grave importance as discussed by the Shaykh is the matter of those individuals who perform ruqya as a means to expand their wealth and earn a living. He spoke about some of the heinous practices of these individuals and clarified the authentic position according to the Qur’aan and pure Sunnah. He further said that what these individuals commit is extortion and is a defamation of the ruqya legislated in the Shari’ah.


Must Read! – From among the punishments of sinful acts are that they cause the servant to forget himself.

So, consequently when a person forgets his soul, he corrupts it, and then destroys it.  If o­ne would ask, “How does someone forget himself if he does forget?  Which things does he remember?” Allaah the Most High has said,

“And do not be like those who forgot Allaah (i.e. became disobedient to Allaah) and He caused them to forget their own selves.” [Suratul-Hashr 59:19]

In other words, Glory is to Him, Allaah punishes the o­ne who forgets Him with two punishments:

(1). Allaah forgets him.

(2). He causes the individual to forget himself.

Allaah’s forgetting the servant involves His disregard, abandonment and neglect of the disobedient o­ne. As a result, destruction draws closer to him than his own face and hand.

As for the sinner, his forgetting himself means that the person stops thinking about the finer qualities of the soul and the things that lead to its success and well-being.  He forgets all of this.  The matter does not even come to mind.  Nor does he bring it to mind.

In addition, the disobedient servant is made to forget the diseases of the heart and soul along with the agony that accompanies them.  In the end, there is no effort to remove these destructive ills that of which eventually lead him to corruption and ruin. He becomes a sick individual covered with layers of disease. The internal disorder causes destruction to spread through him.  However, this negligent soul is not aware of his sickness nor does the remedy occur in his mind.

This is the worst kind of punishment. What punishment is worse than an individual neglecting, and then destroying himself? He forgets the beneficial qualities his soul possesses.  This rebellious servant becomes heedless of the causes of his acquiring good in this life and a permanent resting place in the abode of eternal bliss.

Regarding Caesareans…- Shaykh ibn ‘Uthaymeen rahimahullaah

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

I would like to take this opportunity to point out a phenomenon that has been mentioned to us, which is that many obstetricians, male and female, in the hospitals are too keen for birth to take place by surgical means, which is known as a Caesarean. I am afraid that this may be a plot against the Muslims, because the more births take place in this manner, the more the skin of the abdomen is weakened and pregnancy becomes more dangerous for the woman, and she becomes unable to get pregnant. Some of the people who work in private hospitals have told me that many women come to the hospitals and their specialists tell them that there is no alternative to a caesarean, then they go to this private hospital and give birth naturally. He mentioned that there were about eighty such cases in one month. This means that the issue is serious, and attention must be drawn to it. It should be noted that in this case some pain and exhaustion is inevitable.
“His mother bears him with hardship. And she brings him forth with hardship”
[al-Ahqaaf 46:15]

It is not something to be done as soon as the woman feels a contraction, so that she may avoid pain. Natural childbirth is better than a caesarean. End quote.

(SOURCE: Liqaa’aat al-Baab il-Maftoohah 2/question no. 42).

The Shaykh (may Allaah have mercy on him) was also asked:

Allaah says in Soorat ‘Abasa (interpretation of the meaning):

“Then He makes the Path easy for him”
[‘Abasa 80:20]

So Allaah guarantees to make it easy for this newborn. Many men and women have noticed that there is haste in performing caesarean sections. Is this a sign of weak trust in Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted?

He replied:

I think that this method which people use nowadays when the woman feels the contractions and goes to the hospital, and they do a caesarean section for her, I think that this is inspired by the shaytaan, and that the harm caused is far greater than any benefits, because a woman is bound to feel pain when in labour, but this pain has a number of benefits:

1 – It is an expiation for sin
2 – It raises her in status if she is patient and seeks reward.
3 – The woman understands the extent of the pain suffered by other mothers.
4 – She will appreciate the extent of the blessing of good health that Allaah bestows on her.
5 – It will increase her love towards her child, because the more difficult it is to attain something, the dearer it becomes.
6 – If the child is born by via the usual, well-known route, this is better for him and the woman.
7 – Damage may be expected from this surgery, because this operation weakens the wall of the uterus etc, which may tear. And it may be successful or unsuccessful.
8 – The woman who gets used to having caesareans is unlikely to give birth in the natural manner, because that is not possible, and there is the risk that the site of the surgery may rupture.
9 – Having surgery results in having fewer children, because if the abdomen is cut three times in different places, it becomes weak and future pregnancy becomes dangerous.
10 – This is a kind of luxury, and luxury is a thing that leads to doom, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Verily, before that, they indulged in luxury…”
[al-Waaqi’ah 56:45]

Women should be patient and seek reward, and should continue to give birth in the natural way, because that is better for them in this world and in the Hereafter. Men should also pay attention to this issue, for we do not know, perhaps our enemies are the ones who have made these operations easy for us so that we will lose these benefits and be subject to these losses.

Question: What is meant by luxury?

Answer: Luxury includes avoiding the natural pain of childbirth. This is a kind of luxury. If luxury does not help one to obey Allaah, then it is either blameworthy or at the very least permissible.

(SOURCE: Liqaa’aat al-Baab il-Maftooh 86/question no. 17).

Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings…

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An example of this is that of a man who commits a sin at night which Allah has covered for him, and in the morning, he would say (to people): “I committed such and such sin last night,’ while Allah had kept it a secret. During the night Allah has covered it up but in the morning he tears up the cover provided by Allah Himself.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

The Supplication For When Things Become Difficult For A Person

From Anas that The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘O Allaah there is nothing that is easy except that You made it easy, and You can make this difficulty easy if You so wish to’

(Allaahumma la sahala illa ma ja’alta sahlan wa anta taj’all al-huzna itha shitta sahlan)

اللهم لا سهلَ إلا ما جعلتَه سهلاً وأنتَ تجعلُ الحزنَ إذا شئتَ سهلاََ

Collected by Ibn Hibban in ‘Saheeh’, Ibn Sunni and ad-Deeya in ‘al-Mukhtar’ and shaykh Albani declared it Saheeh upon the conditions of Muslim.

[Taken from ‘Silsilah Ahadeeth As-Saheehah’ vol.6 hadeeth no. 2886 p.902]

Salaatul Duha- How many Sunnah have we missed, and how many shortcomings do we have in our Obligatory Salaah! Allaahul Musta’aan

Let’s increase in Reward O Slaves of Allaah- How many Sunnah have we missed, and how many shortcomings do we have in our Obligatory Salaah! Allaahul Musta’aan

One of the optional prayers is Salatul Duha. It is a Sunnah Mu’akkadah (supererogatory).

Abu Dharr Radhiallahu ‘anhu reported: The Prophet (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “In the morning, charity is due on every joint of the body of every one of you. Every utterance of Allah’s Glorification (i.e., saying Subhan Allah) is an act of charity, every utterance of His Praise (i.e., saying Al-hamdu lillah) is an act of charity, every utterance of declaration of His Greatness (i.e., saying La ilaha ill Allah) is an act of charity, and every utterance of declaration of His Power (i.e. saying Allah Akbar); and enjoining M`aruf (good) is an act of charity, and forbidding Munkar (evil) is an act of charity, and two Rak`ats of Doha Prayers which one performs in the Forenoon is equal to all this (in reward).” [Muslim]

•Its time•

Its time is from about 20 minutes after the sunrise till about 15/20 mins before Salatul Dhuhr. 

The time for Duha prayer is from when the sun has risen to the height of a spear, which is fifteen or twenty minutes after sunrise, until just before the sun passes its zenith (and the zenith is when the time for Zuhr prayer begins). What is meant by just before the sun passes its zenith is ten to fifteen minutes before it reaches the zenith, i.e. before the time when it is forbidden to pray begins. End quote. Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him), (14/306). 

Ibn Muflih (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The time for (Duha) is from when the time when it is forbidden to prays ends, until the sun reaches its zenith. What is meant – and Allaah knows best – is just before the sun passes its zenith, because it is forbidden to pray at that time. End quote from al-Furoo’ (1/5670.


The best way to approach this insha’Allah, when you wake up after going to sleep after fajr, make your wudul and pray your 2, 6, 4 or 8 rak’ats for Salatul Duha. 

subhaanAllah, how easy is that?

when starting out start with praying 2 raka’ah, when you get used to praying this Salah then insha’Allah you can increase the number of Rak’ah that you pray in it. 

 Abu Huraira Radhiallahu ‘anhu said : “My Khalil (friend) (the Prophet Shalallahu ‘alaihi wa Salam) advised me to observe three things and I shall not leave them till I die:
1. “To observe Saum (fasting) three days every (lunar) month;
2.” To offer the Duha prayer;
3. To offer Witr prayer before sleeping.”
[Bukhari & Muslim]

so insha’Allah T’ala, this is a simple Sunnah Mu’akkadah that we can easily begin to implement.

so in sha Allaah lets make the intention, if we cannot pray it today, to start from tomorrow to observe this prayer! Baarak Allaahu feekum – Share this in shaa Allaah with others

[Brothers- Must Read!] The Ruling Concerning Al-Isbal (Garment below the ankles) in Clothing

The Noble Scholar Muhammad As-Saalih Al-‘Uthaymeen said:If someone lets his Izar (waist wrap) drop lower than his ankles from vanity or haughtiness, then Allaah Almighty will neither look at him on the Day of Judgement, nor speak to him, nor purify him; and for him is a painful punishment. If he does so, but not from haughtiness, then his punishment will be the fire on whatever is below his ankles. This is because the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,”There are three people that Allaah will not speak to on the Day of Judgement, will not look at them, will not purify them; and for them is a painful punishment: one who lets his garment hang below his ankles, the Mannan and the Munffiq who does his business with false oaths.” (Muslim no. 106)And because he (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,”Whoever drags his garment out of arrogance, Allaah will not look at him on the Day of Judgement.” (Al-Bukhari no. 5784 and Muslim no. 2085)

These address one who drags his garment out of arrogance. As for the one whose objective is not arrogance, in Sahih Al-Bukhari it is recorded that Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him reported that the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said:”Whatever is below the ankles is in the fire.” (Al-Bukhari no. 5787)The Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) did not confine this to arrogance, and it is not correct to do so based on Hadeeth before it because Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri, may Allaah be pleased with him, said that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,”The Izar of the believer is at the middle of his shin, and there is no harm — or he said — no sin upon someone if it is anywhere between that and the ankles. What is lower than that is in the Fire. And whoever drags his Izar arrogantly, Allaah will not look at him on the Day of Judgement.” (Abu Dawud no. 4093, Ibn Majah no. 3573, An-Nasa’i 5/490, no 9716 and Al-Mawatta’ 2/914, 915)Because the two actions are different, the punishment for each is different. Whenever the ruling and the reason for that differ, it is not possible to restrict a general ruling, this is because that would lead to a contradiction.As for those who use Abu Bakr’s Hadeeth to argue the contrary, we say that there is no proof in that because of two reasons:1. Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with him, said that one side of his garment would fall down if he didn’t constantly hold it up to make sure it didn’t. In his case, may Allaah be pleased with him, he did not let his garments fall out of arrogance but it would fall even though he was trying to keep it up. We say to those who let their garment hang low, claiming that they do not intend to do so out of arrogance, but still do so on purpose, that by them letting their garments hang below their ankles on purpose even without arrogance, only what is below their ankles will be punished in the Fire. And if they do so out of arrogance, they will be punished with what is worse than that: Allaah will not speak to them on the day of Resurrection, nor look at them, nor purify them, and they will receive a painful punishment.2. The Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) attested and witnessed to the fact that Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with him, did not do so from haughtiness. Does any of these people have this commendation or witness? Rather the Shaytan has enticed some people to follow texts that are not so clear to them in the Qur’aan and Sunnah, thus making an excuse for their actions. Allaah guides whomever he pleases to the straight path, so we ask Allaah to guide all of us to it.
