Social Media Benefit Cards Pt1 of 3

Recurring Charity

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

From Abu Hurairah from the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ who said:

يَدْعُو لَهُ  إِذَا مَاتَ ابْنُ آدَمَ انْقَطَعَ عَمَلُهُ إِلا مِنْ ثَلاثٍ : مِنْ صَدَقَةٍ جَارِيَةٍ ، أَوْ عِلْمٍ يُنْتَفَعُ بِهِ ، أَوْ وَلَدٍ صَالِحٍ

‘When the son of Aadam dies his actions are severed except for three: recurring charity, knowledge which he can benefit from or a righteous child who supplicates for him.’

[Collected by Muslim]

From Abu Hurairah from the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ who said:

«مَنْ دَعَا إِلَى هُدًى كَانَ لَهُ مِنَ الأجر مثل أجور من تبعه، لا ينقص ذلك مِنْ أُجُورِهِمْ شَيْئًا. وَمَنْ دَعَا إِلَى ضَلَالَةٍ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ مِنَ الْإِثْمِ مِثْلُ آثَامِ مَنْ تَبِعَهُ، لَا يَنْقُصُ ذَلِكَ مِنْ آثَامِهِمْ شَيْئًا»

‘Whoever called to guidance then he will have the reward, the like of the reward of the one who followed him and this does not decrease anything from their rewards.

Whoever called to misguidance then he will have the sin, the like of the sin of the one who followed him and this does not decrease anything from their sins.’ [Collected by Muslim]

Ibn al-Jawzi -rahimullaah- said:

ﻣﻦ ﺃﺣﺐ ﺃﻻ‌ ﻳﻨﻘﻄﻊ ﻋﻤﻠﻪ ﺑﻌﺪ ﻣﻮﺗﻪ: ﻓﻠﻴﻨﺸﺮ ﺍﻟﻌﻠﻢ

‘Whoever loves that his actions are not severed after he dies, then he should spread knowledge.’

[From ‘at-Tadhkirah’ 55]

The Worst of the Major Sins

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

From Abu Bakr -RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said that the Messenger of Allaah said:

أَلَا أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِأَكْبَرِ الْكَبَائِرِ ؟

‘Shall I not inform you of the worst of the major sins?’ – three times.

We said yes of course O Messenger of Allaah.

The Messenger said:

الْإِشْرَاكُ بِاَللَّهِ ، وَعُقُوقُ الْوَالِدَيْنِ. . . ‘

‘Associating partners with Allaah and disobedience to parents. . .’

 [Collected by Bukhari and Muslim]

Listening to the Qur’aan

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Shaykh Abdul Aziz bin Baz said:

‘The one listening to the Quraan is a participant with the reader in every letter which incurs a good deed, and every good deed is equivalent to ten the like of it.’

[Fatawa Noor ala Darb 26/350]

Differences of three Principles

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Yahya bin Mu’adh ar-Razi said:

‘Differences between the people  go back to three principles and each one has an opposite so whoever fails in one of them then he falls into its opposite:

The opposite of Tawheed is Shirk,

The opposite of Sunnah is Bida

And the opposite of obedience is sinning.’

[From al-I’tisaam by Shatabee 1/91]

How the Deviants prevent people from entering into Islaam

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Ibn al Qayyim -rahimullaah- said:

‘Indeed we and many others called the People of the Book [Jews & Christians]  to Islaam but they informed us that what prevented them from Islaam was what they saw of those who ascribe themselves

To Islaam, from those whom the ignorant regard as great:

·         From those committing Bida
·         oppression,
·         openly sinning,
·         evil plotting,
·         trickery
·         and ascribing all those things to the Shari’a and to the one who brought the Shari’a.

So the People of the Book have evil presumptions of the Sharia and of the one who brought it.

Therefore, Allaah will take a hold of the bandits waiting on the path of Allaah.

And Allaah is their reckoner’.

[Igathat al-Lahafaan 2/1052]

Tafseer by the Companions

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Muhammad bin Muhayza said:

‘The Tafseer of the Companions is foremost than the Tafseer of those who came after them because they received the Qur’aan al Kareem and its Tafseer from the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam.’

[Durrar 15/149]

قال محمد بن مهيزع :

تفسير الصحابة أولى من تفسير من بعدهم لأنهم تلقوا القرآن الكريم وتفسيره من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

الدرر 15\149

Greatest of Good News

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Allaama as-Saadi -rahimullaah- said:

‏أعظم بشرى حاصلة للإنسان توفيقه للإيمان و العمل الصالح

‘The greatest good news which a person receives is Allaah giving him the capability of having Eemaan and carrying out righteous actions.’

[Tafseer as-Saadi 1/50]


The Greatest Blessing of Allaah

Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Ibn ‘Uayyaina -rahimullaah- said :

ما أنعم الله على عبد من العباد نعمة أعظم من
أن عرفهم لا إله إلا الله .
وإن لا إله إلا الله لأهل الجنة كالماء البارد
لأهل الدنيا

‘Allaah did not give a greater blessing to a slave of His from amongst His slaves than that of acquainting them with la ilaha ila Allaah. Indeed La ilaha ila Allaah to the people of Paradise is the like of cool water for the people of the Duniya.’

[Collected in ‘Kalimat ul Ikhlaas’ by  Ibn Rajab p.52]

Sleeping in a state of Purification

From Abu Hurairah that the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – said:

من بات طاهرا بات في شعاره ملك لا
يستيقظ ساعة من الليل إلا قال الملك:
اللهم اغفر لعبدك فلانا، فإنه بات طاهرا “.

‘Whoever sleeps while in a state of purification then an Angel sleeps in his garment, he does not wake up at any time during the night except that the Angel says: O Allaah forgive Your slave such and such since he went to sleep upon purification.’

[Collected by Abdullaah ibn al-Mubarak in ‘Hadeethihi’ & ‘Zuhd’, and Albaani declared it to have a Hasan Isnaad in Silsilah Saheehah no. 2539]

Deviating from the evidences of the Qur’aan & the Sunnah

The Imam Ibn al-Qayyim -Rahimullaah – said :

Whoever deviates from the evidences, then he has strayed away from the correct path. There is no evidence which leads to Allaah and Paradise other than the Book and the Sunnah.

Every path which is not accompanied with the evidences from the Qur’aan & the Sunnah then it is from the path of the Hell fire and the accursed Shaytaan.

[Madarij as – Salikeen 2/439]

قال الإمام ابن القيّم رحمه الله :

ومن فارق الدليل، فقد ضل عن سواء السبيل.
ولا دليل إلى الله والجنة سوى الكتاب والسنة. وكل طريق لم يصحبها دليل القرآن والسنة فهي من طرق الجحيم، والشيطان الرجيم

[ مدارج السالكين ٢-٤٣٩ ]
