An Insight into The Realm of Jinns and Magic – Shaykh ‘Abdul’Azeez al-Bura’ee – Little excerpt from the audio!

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.

Beautiful advice from Abu Uwais! What is your connection with Allaah!?

Abu Uwais:

But we need to ask ourselves some questions, from today, What is my connection with Allaah tabaaraka wa ta3aala? Am I close with Allaah tabaraaka wa ta3aala? Do I do more obediences? or do I commit more ma’aasi, more sins? do I put myself in a position where I try to please Allaah or do I do those matters which Allaah hates? This is a question we have to ask and this is also from the way of the salaf us saalih, to judge oneself before one is judged, judge our situation, judge our state! How is our Salawaat (Prayers)? hows our tilawah (recitation) of the Qur’aan? How is our ordering of what is good and forbidding that which is bad? How is our goodness to parents? How is our goodness to the neighbour, hows our islamic brotherhood? How are we!? Like ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullaah described those upon the sunnah, they fulfill the rights of Allaah, and they don’t forget the rights of the creatures. They fulfill the rights of Allaah, and they dont forget the rights of the creatures. We have to begin to reflect on these issues, we have to begin to understand that this existence hayaatud-dunya (the life of this world), this is our only chance! We are in the abode of examination, it was never meant to stay here, we’re not meant to stay here, we’re moving on! Now we have to judge ourselves before we are judged! What is our connection with our Rabb (Lord)? Do we remember Allaah tabaaraka wa ta3aala more than anything or anyone else, or do we remember the dunya (world) more than anything or anyone else? Are we striving for al-jannah, for paradise, that is as vast as the heavens and the earth? Do we believe in the Jannah that Allaah tabaaraka wa ta3aala has described in the Qur’aan and the Prophet salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam has described in the Sunnah?

Listen to the rest here in shaa Allaah:

Abu Uwais’s advice to those who face trials when giving da’wah- Soooo beautiful- Read+share In shaa Allaah

Questioner:

It seems like the person who encourages the good is the person whom the people attack. Just as an example, I went to an event and it was in a gymnasium, and the brother prayed (made the salat) in his shoes. And the people (non-Salafees) verbally attacked him as he tried to explain the Sunnah. And they said, “You Salafees are arrogant.” And they began to attack the brother. He used to be a person who would always encourage the people with the Sunnah, especially those things that a lot of people don’t do. And now, he doesn’t do that…What words of advice and encouragement would you give him in order for him to continue to do what he was doing?

Abu Uwais (rahimahullaah) answered:

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah. The Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said those who receive the most ibtilah (examination or tests or fitnah) are the Prophets then those most like them then those most like them. And the Da’ee (caller) has to realize that he’s going to go through these types of things, whoever he is, whoever she is, and whatever amount of ‘ilm or knowledge that they call to, they have to expect [this harm]. This is what we [discussed] in Usool Ath-Thalaatha, being patient upon the harms that come [while giving da’wah]. So he should not have given up.

Shaikh Ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) used to always say, ‘Don’t give up.’ ‘Don’t give up.’ Always be patient, being resilient, striving; never give up for the end result is for the Muttaqeen (the righteous, those who love Allaah, those who have taqwa). For those who believe, Allaah Tabaarak wa Ta’aala will support them, no matter what difficulty they go through.

Look at [the example of] the Prophet when he injured his hand, his finger. He said: Are you nothing but a finger that has been injured and bloodied, and you met in the Path of Allaah what you were meant to meet.

And this is how we should look at things. If you’re going to call to the Qur`an and the Sunnah and the Deen of Allaah, Tabaarak wa Ta’aala, we should expect [harms].

If everybody (is showering us with, or placing in front of us) rose petals and opening their arms, then something is wrong with our da’wah. The Da’wah is something that the people are against, at least in the beginning of the matter.

There’s (going to be) roughness from them, some turning away. And then you try and try and be patient, and you plant seeds, and basically they are nourished and then they grow, and they come to fruition. So this is how he should have looked at it.

He should never have given up.

And [for] that revival of the Sunnah, he will get a great reward. As a matter of fact, if he sticks to the Deen in the times of fitnah (harj) it’s like making Hijrah to the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). If he makes ‘ibaadah (worship) in the times of Fitnah [that’s] like making Hijrah to the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).[1]

And if he holds onto the Deen of Allaah like hot coals, he will get the reward of 50 sahaaba (companions).[2]

There are a lot of bushra (glad tidings) for giving da’wah. He shouldn’t look at his situation right now [their objection], but he should think of the future and what would happen bi-idhnillaah Ta’aala.

And the success will be for the believer. No doubt about that!

Notes:

[1] The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: Worship performed during time of harj is like making hijra to me (the Prophet).

Shaikh Saalih as-Sindee (hafidhahullaah) said:
The one who worships during harj (times when killing, fitna, and fear is widespread, and those who obey Allaah are few, and those who disobey Allaah are many) his reward is like the one who made hijrah to the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) – a reward that only some of the companions (the Muhajjirun) received.

[2] The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: ‘Ahead of you there lie days of patience, during which being patient will be like grasping a hot coal. The one who does good deeds then will have a reward like that of fifty men who do such deeds.’ They said: O Messenger of Allaah, the reward of fifty of them? He said: ‘The reward of fifty of you.’

(Narrated by Abu Dawood (4341); at-Tirmidhi (3085), who said it is a hasan hadeeth. It was classed as ‘saheeh’ by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah [494])

In some reports of the hadeeth, it reads: “They are the ones who will revive my Sunnah and teach it to the people.”

[Extracted from Salafitalk]

Must Read | Shaykh Z. Al-Madkhali: “The Innovator is the cause for the splitting (in the ummah)…

Al-Allaamah Zaid Bin Haadi Al-Madkhali (may Allaah preserve him) said:

”The mubtadi (the innovator) is the cause for the splitting (in the ummah); because splitting is connected to innovation and unity (upon the sound creed and methodology of the Salaf) is connected to the Sunnah. The obligation of refuting the Mukhaalif (the opposer of the truth) is not lifted from the scholar due to anticipation of harm, unless it is harm he is not able to bear. Then (in this case), Allah does not burden a soul beyond what it can bear. The earth is not devoid of people of knowledge who will carry out refutation against the Mubtadi and the Mukhaalif.”

Read this O Slave of Allaah- Calling yourself to Account- Shaykh Abdur-Razzaq al-Abbad Hafidhahullaah

Shaykh Abd ar-Razzaq al-Abbaad:

All Praise is Due to Allah the Lord of the Universe; He is Alone; He has not partners; and I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, his family and his companions.

As to what follows:

“يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلْتَنظُرْ نَفْسٌ مَّا قَدَّمَتْ لِغَدٍ ۖ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ”

“O you who have believed, fear Allah. And let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow – and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.” [59:18]

This verse is a great principle in the matter of holding the soul accountable, and that it is obligatory upon the slave that he takes account for himself and that he looks at what he has prepared for tomorrow before Allah takes account of him on the Day of Judgement. For verily, it is from goodness for the slave that he looks at his actions and to what he has prepared for the meeting with his Lord. Are they righteous, obedient, purified actions and distant from the prohibited actions and evil acts, such [that] it pleases him to meet His Lord with that? Or are they affairs which enrage and anger Allah, and [that] make permissible upon him the punishment [of Allah]?

So he looks at what he has prepared for tomorrow. And he is [continuously] remembering that day, and [continuously] remembering the standing in front of Allah, and [continuously] remembering the taking of account [by Allah] and the presentation of the deeds. And that all that he has done will come present, written, and inscribed in a book.

“وَوُضِعَ الْكِتَابُ فَتَرَى الْمُجْرِمِينَ مُشْفِقِينَ مِمَّا فِيهِ وَيَقُولُونَ يَا وَيْلَتَنَا مَالِ هَٰذَا الْكِتَابِ لَا يُغَادِرُ صَغِيرَةً وَلَا كَبِيرَةً إِلَّا أَحْصَاهَا ۚ وَوَجَدُوا مَا عَمِلُوا حَاضِرًا ۗ وَلَا يَظْلِمُ رَبُّكَ أَحَدًا”

“And the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, “Oh, woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?” And they will find what they did present [before them]. And your Lord does injustice to no one.“ [18:49]

On the Day of Judgement the Lord will say:

“O My servants, these deeds of yours which I am recording for you I shall reward you for them, so he who finds good should praise Allah and he who finds other than that should not blame anyone but himself.” [Muslim]

Is it not appropriate of the slave, while the matter is like that, that the taking of account should be now?!

“..so he who finds good should praise Allah and he who finds other than that should not blame anyone but himself.” 

Is it not from appropriateness that this should be during the period of the action?! If he finds good he praises Allah for what He has made easy and has assisted [in], and if he finds other than that he rectifies himself. On the Day of Judgement Allah will say:

“..[he] should not blame anyone but himself.”

Because he has no chance for rectifying, for acting, for repentance and turning back [to Allah]. But if he takes himself to account now and looks at his actions, if he finds good he should praise Allah, and if he finds other than that then he should rectify himself. As for on the Day of Judgement if he finds other than that he should not blame anyone but himself because there is no chance, not for repentance nor for turning back [to Allah] nor for returning to this life a second time to do righteousness, [which is] other than what he used to do.

And in this meaning, Umar – may Allah be pleased with him – says:

“Hold yourself accountable before you are held accountable, weigh yourselves before you are weighed, and be prepared for the biggest gathering before He Whose knowledge encompasses your deeds, (That Day shall you be brought to Judgement, not a secret of yours will be hidden [69:18]).” 

Taking account of the soul, as the scholars have clarified, is of two types:

1. Taking account after the action

2. Taking account before the action

As for the accounting which is [done] after the action:

It is that the slave looks at that which has passed from his actions, and that which has come forth from his deeds, and that which he will be held accountable for by his Lord. He looks at his past actions in his life. Are they upon obedience and appropriateness? Or are they upon disobedience and deviation? Or is he mixing between that? So he looks at the elapsed from his actions, and everything which has passed the slave will be held accountable for on the Day of Judgement. Everything which he has brought forth, the slave will be held accountable for. But in the Shari’ah (Legislation) of Islam, Allah has favoured upon us with a great and blessed thing, it is none other than the matter of Tawbah (repentance). And our Prophet – sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam – informed us that repentance demolishes what was before it. And he – sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam – informed us that regret is repentance. So he should look at his past actions, if they were pure, righteous, upright, upon the obedience of Allah, then he should praise Allah. And if in them there was disobedience and transgression, the negligence in regards to the Right of Allah, then he should repent.

“قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ”

“Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” [39:10]

“..do not despair..” – meaning: do not despair, for Allah accepts [the] repentance however big the sin [reaches] and immense the crime [is]. For He forgives those who ask for forgiveness. So a truthful repentance to Allah, and a sincere repentance from every sin is better than the slave meeting Allah with his huge sins and many disobediences.

The second type of taking account is before the action:

It is looking at the action that he will carry out. He does not take a step nor motion in a direction except that it is in agreement in its way [the way of the action he will carry out]. As some of the Salaf have said: “From the understanding of a man is his food, his drink, and his walk.” That he understands that which he steps towards and that which he puts forth from action. Is it legislated which is authorized or is it prohibited? He does not befriend whoever he wants, he does not eat whatever he wants and he does not do whatever he wants, and verily all of that is only weighted upon the scale of the Legislation. So he takes himself to account upon the action before he does it so that his actions are weighed on the scale of the Legislation of Allah so there is agreement in it [the action] with the Prophet – sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam.

I ask Allah al-Kareem the Lord of the Great ‘Arsh, by His Good Names and High Attributes, that he rectifies for all of us all of our affairs. And that He does not leave us to take care of ourselves even for a blink of an eye. Oh Allah give our souls its Taqwa, and purify it, you are the Best of who purifies it, you are its Wali’ and Mawla.

And Allah knows best. And may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the Messenger of Allah.”
