Lessons In The Month Of Ramadhaan # 4

Rulings on the Night Prayers in Ramadhaan.


بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد


Brief translation of Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen's " مجالس شهر الرمضان "

All praises are for Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. And peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions and all those who follow their path.

O my brothers! Verily, Allaah has legislated for His worship different acts of worship. He made some of these acts as obligatory, and it is not allowed for anyone to reduce from it any act or to breach it. Other acts are supererogatory, with which a person can get even more close to Allaah and which can act as a completion for the deficiencies in the obligatory acts.

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد


Brief translation of Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen's " مجالس شهر الرمضان "

All praises are for Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. And peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions and all those who follow their path.

My brothers! Verily fasting is one of the pillars of Islaam and one of its core foundations. Allaah تعالى said:

{يأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ * أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَتٍ فَمَن كَانَ مِنكُم مَّرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ وَعَلَى الَّذِينَ يُطِيقُونَهُ فِدْيَةٌ طَعَامُ مِسْكِينٍ فَمَن تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ وَأَن تَصُومُواْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ فِدْيَةٌ طَعَامُ مِسْكِينٍ فَمَن تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ وَأَن تَصُومُواْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ طَعَامُ مِسْكِينٍ فَمَن تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ وَأَن تَصُومُواْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ  شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِى أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَـتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلاَ يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُواْ الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُواْ اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ } [البقرة: 183 185].

Virtues of the Month of Ramadhaan


بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد


Brief translation of Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen's " مجالس شهر الرمضان "


All praises be to Allaah, the one who brought into existence and created; and who created water and the soil. Nothing is hidden from His sight even as small as the ant hidden in the night. Nothing equal to the weight of an atom, in the earth below or the heavens above, is distant from His knowledge.

{لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَـوَتِ وَمَا فِي الاَْرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَمَا تَحْتَ الثَّرَى * وَإِن تَجْهَرْ بِالْقَوْلِ فَإِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ السِّرَّ وَأَخْفَى * اللَّهُ لا إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ لَهُ الاْسْمَآءُ الْحُسْنَى} [طه: 6-8]

Hadeeth: Open repentance for open mistakes.


بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

`Ataa reported from Mu`aadh bin Jabl that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “(O people!) Keep your duty to Allaah and fear him as much as you can. And remember Allaah عز وجل near every stone and tree (i.e. remember Allaah much). And if you committed a sin, follow it up with repentance – a secret (mistake to be repented) secretly; and an open (mistake to be repented) publicly.”

[Reported by Imaam Ahmad in “al-Zuhd” (26) and Tabaraanee in “al-Mu`jam al-Kabeer” (20/159/331). Shaikh al-Albaanee said in al-Saheehah (3320): “the narrators of this narration are reliable, they are the narrators of al-Bukhaaree and Muslim; except for Shareek (one of the narrators) who is weak, and the chain is Mursal (broken) as `Ataa did not meet Mu`aadh.” This Hadeeth also has supporting chain which takes it to the level of “Hasan li ghairihee”, see al-Silsilah (1475) ]

(عليك بتقوى الله ما استطعت، واذكر الله عز وجل عند كل حجر وشجر. !اذا عملت سيئةً فأحدثْ عندها توبةً؛ السرُّ بالسرِّ، والعلانيةُ بالعلانيةِ).

Brief Comments of Shaikh Ibn Baaz on Saheeh al-Bukhaaree #5

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Imaam al-Bukhaaree رحمه الله said:

Chapter: The Prayer is from Imaan. And the saying of Allaah تعالى {And Allaah would never make your faith to be lost} i.e. your prayers offered towards Jerusalem. [Surah al-Baqarah (2): 143]

Hadeeth: Where should the second person stand when there are only two persons praying together?

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد


Shaikh al-Albaanee said in “Al-Silsilah al-Ahaadeeth al-Saheehah” 6/174:

2590 - “What is the matter (in another narration: what is with you) that I made you stand in line with me and you moved back?”

The Prophet's concern for the Ummah


بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد


Allaah تعالى says:


قَدْ نَعْلَمُ إِنَّهُ لَيَحْزُنُكَ الَّذِى يَقُولُونَ فَإِنَّهُمْ لاَ يُكَذِّبُونَكَ وَلَـكِنَّ الظَّـلِمِينَ بِـَايَـتِ اللَّهِ يَجْحَدُونَ

{And when the Word is fulfilled against them, We shall bring out from the earth a beast for them, to speak to them because mankind believed not with certainty in Our Ayaat.} [Surah Al-Naml (27): 82]
