Amazing Statements…

Good Manners:

From Abu Hurayrah (radiallaahu ‘anhu) that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallaam) said:

“The most complete of the believers in faith (eemaan), ids the best of them in manners.” [related by Ahmad (2/250), Tirmidhee (2612) and others. Al-Albaanee declared it good (hasan): As-Saheehah (284, 751]

Shayk Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen says: “This hadeeth should always be in front of the eyes of the believer. So the most complete of the believers in faith (eemaan), is the best of them in manners with Allaah, and with the servants of Allaah.” [Sharhul ‘Aqeedatil Waasitiyah (2/353)]

The path of the Believers

Imam ibn Abee Jamrah said: Indeed the scholars have said regarding the statement of Allaah:

“…And follows other than the Path of the Believers, We will turn him to what he has turned to…” [Sooratun Nisaa 3:1115]

that what is meant by it is the Companions (Sahabah), and the first generation, because they themselves were the first ones to encounter opposition to the Sunnah. So they cured it by the best questions about what took place in their soul due to some ambiguity. so He (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallaam) answered them with the best of answers, and explained to them with the most complete of explanations. So they listened, and they understood, and they acted, and they perfected, and they mastered, and they believed. So they have a tremendous virtue over us. It is through them that we can connect our rope to the rope of our leader, Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallaam), and to the Rope of our Protector.” [Bahjatun Nufoos (1/4)]

The Guidance of the Scholars:

Imaam Al-Aajurree said: “Consider – may Allaah have mercy upon you – a path thwarted with great dangers, yet people need to traverse it, even in the darkness of night. If there were no light upon this path, the people would be terrified. However, Allaah gave them a guiding light by which they were to traverse this path in peace and safety. Then came groups of people who also needed to traverse this path, so they traversed it. However, during this time the guiding light became extinguished and the people returned to a state of darkness. So what would your opinion be about their condition?

This is the example of the scholars and the common people. Most people do not know how to fulfill their obligatory duties, now how to avoid prohibited matters, nor how to worship Allaah correctly – all of this they learn from the scholars. So with death the of the scholars, mankind returns to a state of anxiety and terror, the teaching of knowledge dies whilst ignorance prevails – what an enormous calalmity this is for the Muslims. “Indeed to Allaah we belong and to Him we all return.” [Akhlaaqul ‘Ulamaa (p. 28]

Learning and implementing the Qur’aan

Abdullaah Ibn mas’ood (radiallaahu ‘anhu) said: “We used to learn ten aayahs, not increasing upon them until we have implemented them.” [Related by Ibn Jareer at-Tabaree with an authentic chain of narrators. See Basaa’ir Dhush ‘Ulama (p. 138)]

Aboo ‘Abdur Rahmaan as-Sulamee (rahimahullaah) said: “Verily we took this Qur’aan from a people about whom it was reported to us that if they learned ten aayahs, they would not move onto another ten until they have learned what wa in them. So we used to learn the Qur’aan and implement it. Verily the Qur’aan will be inherited after us to a people who will retain it in a way that water is retained. It will not pass beyond their collar bones, rather it will not pass beyond here.”and he put his hand upon his throat.’ [Related by Ibn Sa’d in Tabaqaatul Kubraa (6/172)]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
