Benefit: Constantly and Continuously Connect with the Scholars

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

[Q]: Who do we take knowledge and fatāwá from? What are the qualities of the people of knowledge and al-Iftāʾ(i.e. Those who are able to give verdicts)?

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: Knowledge is taken from the scholars, either in the mosques if they are in the mosques, or in an organised curriculum in the schools, institutes or colleges. Knowledge is taken from the scholars; it is not taken from the ignorant nor from papers or broadly looking into books. This is not [the way to] seek knowledge, because perhaps it may bring about other than that which was intended or perhaps you may understand wrongly. You might read from a book which comprises of doubts and evils, and this will contaminate your way of thinking.

So upon you is to constantly and continuously connect with the scholars in the mosques, schools and conferences of knowledge. Likewise, those whom verdicts are taken from are known amongst the people. The general verdicts are directed to The Permanent Committee for Islamic Research and Fatāwá. As for personal verdicts, they are taken from the one in whom you have confidence in his knowledge and religion.

Benefit: Concealing the Sins of a Muslim

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

If a person sees a defect from his brother (i.e. a sin), he should not expose him and spread news of it amongst the people. Rather, he should conceal [his brother’s sins]; advice him; direct him towards good; call him to repent to Allāh, the Most High; and not expose him to the people. The one who conceals [the sins of] his brother, Allāh will conceal him [i.e. his sins] both in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. This is because the recompense of one is in accordance to that which he has done.

As for those who have no shame and make their sins apparent to the people, they have exposed themselves; therefore, they are not given concealment [with regards to their sins]. They are like the one who drinks alcohol amongst the people in the marketplaces and gatherings, such a person has exposed himself. We ask Allāh for good health.

Benefit: Connection between Astrology and Fortune-Telling

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Question: What is the connection between astrology and fortune-telling? Which one of them is worse?

Answer:
The connection between astrology and fortune-telling is that both of them are based upon falsehood, deception, unlawfully taking the wealth of the people (theft), causing depression and sorrow and the likes of this. As for their dangers upon the Muslims, then you would have to look at how widespread it is amongst the people. It could be that in some countries there are no general signs of astrology, and the people do not rely on or believe in it but fortune-telling is widespread amongst them, which makes it (fortune-telling) worse (than astrology), and vice versa. But in general, fortune-telling is worse.

Benefit: Ibn Taymiyyah on Loving a Woman Unrestrictedly

 

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Ibn Taymiyyah: Anyone who attaches his heart to the creation for aid, provision or guidance will inevitably surrender his heart to it. He becomes enslaved to it (the creation) according to how much he is in need of it, even if—apparently—he seems to be the master and provider who is in charge of its affairs. The intelligent one looks at the reality of things, not its appearance.

If a man is (greatly) in love with a woman, even if she was permissible for him, his heart will remain in her captivity. She will be in charge of him and do with him as she pleases. Although he outwardly appears to be her master, because he is her husband, in reality, he is her captive and her possession, especially if she is aware of his unrestricted love and dire need for her, and that (he thinks) she is irreplaceable. 

Indeed, the captivity of the heart is worse than the captivity of the body, as the enslavement of the heart is worse than the enslavement of the body.

Benefit: Refutation of Those Who Say Allāh Cannot Do All Things

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 There are some who say that Allāh cannot do away with the creation. They have no proof for what they say. In Sūrah al-Raʿd, Allāh says, “Don’t you see O Muhammad that Allāh has created the heavens and the earth in truth; if He chooses, He can make you all go away and bring about an entirely new creation" (Sūrah Ibrahīm, 14:19), and “And that would not be difficult for Him" (Sūrah Ibrahīm,14:20)

Al-Tabarī said, “The One whose mention is honourable said to His Prophet, Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), 'Allāh has brought the heavens and the earth by Himself, without any assistance. Doing away with the creation and bringing another creation in its place is not impossible for Him because He is all-Capable to do whatever He pleases.'" 

From the ʿaqīdah of the Muslims is that we always describe Allāh with complete capability, without limits. We do not worship a limited, restricted Lord.

Benefit: What Do You Call To? What Do You Warn Against?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

We call to tawḥīd and warn against shirk. What do you call to? What do you warn against?

We call to the Sunnah and we warn against bidʿah. What do you call to? What do you warn against?

We call to the way of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), the way which he was upon in his daʿwah. Which way do you call to? Which path do you follow?

We call to the ʿaqīdah, manhaj and narrations of the Salaf, whilst you call towards those who deem shirk to be Islamically legislated forms of worship, and bidʿah to be obedience and gaining closeness (to Allāh), and who consider the distortions of the attributes of Allāh to be tawḥīd.
