Permissibility of the Dhikr of Allah(mighty and majestic is He) with His Singular Name

From Fath al-mulhim of Shabbir Ahmad al-Uthmani the commentary on Sahih Muslim, Vol.2, p.179 in explanation of the Hadith: 374 – (…) ‘‘Abd ibn Ḥumayd told us: ‘Abd ar-Razzāq informed us: Ma‘mar informed us from Thābit from Anas; he said, “The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said, ‘The Hour will not rise over anyone who says: Allah, Allah.’” (more…)

[IslamQA] Ibn Taymiyah on Love

I’m not bashing Ibn Taymiyah, just sharing an interesting view he has:

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (10/129):

Love is a psychological sickness, and if it grows strong it affects the body, and becomes a physical sickness, either as diseases of the brain, which are said to be diseases caused by waswaas, or diseases of the body such as weakness, emaciation and so on. End quote.

(يقول شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية رحمه الله “مجموع الفتاوى” (10/129 :
” والعشق مرض نفسانى ، وإذا قوي أثَّر فى البدن ، فصار مرضا فى الجسم : إما من أمراض الدماغ ، ولهذا قيل فيه هو مرض وسواسي ، وإما من أمراض البدن كالضعف والنحول ونحو ذلك ” انتهى .

Sheikh Ibn Taymiyyah on the Awlyia and Fana

It is established that the awliya have spiritual communications and unveilings. (Al-Furqan, 52)

Among the fundamentals of the people of Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama`a is the belief in the miracles of the Awliya: Allah created supernatural acts through them in all aspects of life, revelations, power, and impressions. This is known of ancient nations in Surat al-Kahf and in other Quranic chapters and is known of the early men of this Ummah amongst the Sahabah and the Tabiun and amongst the rest of the generations of this Ummah. It will be with them to the Day of Resurrection. (Al-Wasitiya, 33)


Ibn Taymiyya on the Maliki Madhhab


Some excerpts from his book, “The soundness of the principles of the madhhab of the people of Madina “:

“Praised be Allah (SWT), the madhhab of the people of City of the Prophet – the place of the Sunnah, the place of migration (hijrah) and the place of helping (nasrah), and where the Prophet established the sunnahs of Islam and its laws and where the muhajirs came and hailed Allah (SWT) and His Prophet and from it were the Ansar who populated the city earlier and their hearts with eman – verily their (the people of Madina’s) madhhab in the era of the Sahabah and the Tabi’een and their Tabi’een is the soundest of madhhabs of all the Islamic cities east and west, in the fundamentals and branches of religion. And verily these three eras are the eras of the three esteemed generations, regarding whom the Prophet (s) said in the sahih hadith ‘The best of generations are my generation, then those who follow them, then those who follow them.’”


Ibn Taymiyya says Khidr is Alive

The Sheikh (Ibn Taymiyyah) – Rahimahullah – was asked:
“Was Khidr (as) a Prophet or a Wali? And is he alive to the present day? And if he is alive, then what do you say about what has been narrated about the Prophet saying “Had he been alive, he would surely have visited me”? Is this hadith sahih or not?”
And the Sheikh answered:


[IslamQA] Did the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commit sin?

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly: the use of the word “sin” in the question is a grave mistake, because sin (khatee’ah, pl. khataayaa) is impossible in the case of the Messengers. It is more correct to say mistakes, because a mistake may be made unintentionally, which is not the case with sins.

Secondly: with regard to sins, the Messengers, including Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), never committed any sin intentionally as an act of disobedience towards Allaah after receiving their Mission (risaalah). This is according to the consensus of the Muslims. They were protected from major sins (kabaa’ir) but not from minor sins (saghaa’ir).
