A brief talk on the importance of returning to the manhaj of the righteous salaf when understanding the Qurʾān.
By Shaykh ʿAbdullāh al-Nahārī
In this audio, we learn lessons from the mother of the Believers. Examples are presented on how the Prophet and his wives were and how they remained obedient etc. This is so that the Muslim woman can take this as an example and gracefully tread the path of obedience as her predecessors did — the wives of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam)!
New and Exciting Upgrades to radio.troid.ca
A few years ago, we launched TROID radio to stream the over 100GB of audio in TROID's catalogue and to broadcast live events. al-Hamdulillāh, this project is very important and useful for Islamic audio on the go. We have worked with two platforms, most recently Spreaker, which has been convenient for live events but insufficient for automated streaming. We have now found a solution which will provide the following important features:
- HD quality live streaming of events
- 24/7 automated shuffled audio stream (from TROID's 750+ audios, over 100GB)
- Scheduled programming (slots to re-run classes weekly on specific times)
- Smartphone enabled broadcasting (for meetings with mashāyikh etc.)
- Website schedule and live feed widgets (plugged into www.troid.ca)
- Support for TuneIn and other streaming apps
- Full metadata support during streams (i.e. album info, speaker etc.)
The cost of this project is $1020 /yr (RAISED al-Hamdulillāh).
Paypal info -@- troid.ca [Attn: radio] (the support TROID widget on the lower right-side of this page is available for PayPal)
This is a small amount considering the huge impact and benefit of HD audio streams of live and prior events to every corner of the globe. This is one area where the da'wah can reach far and wide, since the opponents to this da'wah are busy selling DVD sets, al-hamdulillāh, our audio is free, constant and growing. Below are some screenshots of our software, we invite you to participate in sponsoring this important project.
We ask Allāh to make it a benefit to the Muslims in the English speaking world.
In the Name of Allah, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
al-ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Sʿadī explains:
Innovation is that which opposes the Sunnah and it consists of two types.
Firstly: Innovations with regards to beliefs, and it is to have a belief which is in opposition to that which Allāh and His Messenger (صلي الله عليه وسلم) have informed us of. This is mentioned in his (صلي الله عليه وسلم) statement, “And my Ummah will divide into 73 sects, all in the fire except one. They (the companions) asked, ‘and who are they O Messenger of Allāh?’ He (صلي الله عليه وسلم) replied, they are those who are upon that which I and my companions are upon today”.1
So whoever resembles this description (mentioned by the Messenger صلي الله عليه وسلم) is truly a person of Sunnah, and whosoever is from the remaining sects, then he is an innovator—every innovation is misguidance—and innovations vary according to their straying from the Sunnah.
Secondly: Innovations with regards to actions, and it is to worship (Allāh) with other than that which He and His Messenger (صلي الله عليه وسلم) have legislated, or prohibiting that which Allāh or His Messenger (صلي الله عليه وسلم) made permissible. Whosoever worships (Allāh) with other than that which was legislated or prohibits that which the Legislator (Allāh) has not prohibited is an innovator.

In the name of Allāh, al-Raḥmān, al-Rahīm
An admonition from the late Abū Uways (raḥimahullāh) to the community to give...to give before the time comes when there will be no one to give zakāh too. He laments how we used to spend money and support frivilous causes in jahilliyah or before coming to the Sunnah. He also gives an example of the one who claims to love Salafiyyah but does not want to give to the masjid because he doesn't agree with some of the people on the shūrah or how they run the masjid. He asks: you don't see it, ilm-online (telelinks), students of knowledge overseas, connections to the schoalrs etc (the Shaytān is real!)? A straight-talking clear advice about giving and not wastintg the opportunity to aid the daʿwah.
