Honouring Parents

 

 

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Allaah mentions the command to treat parents well alongside the command to worship Him as He says (interpretation of the meaning): “And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents” [al-Isra 17:23] Obedience to parents is obligatory on the child with regard to that which will benefit them and will not harm the child. With regard to that which does not bring them any benefits or which will cause harm to the child, he does not have to obey them in that case. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Ikhtiyaaraat (p. 114): A person is obliged to obey his parents with regard to that which is not sinful, even if they are immoral evildoers.. This has to do with that which is beneficial for them and not harmful to him.

Warning Against Riba (Usury & Interest) Transactions

 

 

Shaykh Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah ibn Baz

This is a short rebuttal of a research written by Dr. Ibraahim bin Abdullah AnNaasir, in which he tried his best to show the permissibility of most types of Ribaa (usury and interest) transactions that have appeared in recent times in the numerous financial institutions of the world. Hence, we thought English speaking Muslims would benefit from this translated response by Shaikh Abdul-Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz, one of the noted scholars of our time and a staunch supporter and defender of the Manhaj of the Righteous Predecessors (As-Salaf As-Saalih). Shaikh Ibn Baz’s response is a refutation of the misguided effort of Dr. Ibraahim An-Naasir to allow Ribaa transactions.

 

 

Dangers in the Home

 

Putting things right in the home is a great trust and huge responsibility which every Muslim man and woman should undertake as Allaah commands; they should run the affairs of their homes in accordance with the rules set out by Allaah. One of the ways of achieving this is by ridding the home of evil things. The following aims to highlight some evil things that actually happen in some homes and that have become tools of destruction for the nests in which the future generations of the Muslim ummah are being raised.

 

Ettiquettes of Marriage

 

There are in Islam, certain etiquettes upon anyone who marries and wishes to consummate his marriage with his wife. Most Muslims today, even those who exert themselves in Islamic worship, have either neglected or become totally ignorant of these Islamic etiquettes. Therefore, I decided to write this beneficial treatise clearly explaining these issues on the occasion of marriage of someone dear to me. I hope that it will be an aid to him and to other believing brothers in carrying out what the Chief of the Messengers has ordained on the authority of the Lord of the Worlds. I have followed that by pointing out certain issues important to every one who marries, and with which many wives in particular have been tested.

 

Polygamy: Wives Rather Than Girlfriends

 

 

Hamdy Shafiq

Islam is constantly under attack regarding the topic of polygamy. Even during the era of Prophet Muhammad (saw the Jews attempted to cast doubts on the validity of the system. Throughout the ages foes of this relegion inside and outside alike have been attempting to discredit the principle of polygany, with their ultimate goal as being to plunge deeply into skepticism the Holy Quran, the Shari’ah and the Prophet Muhammad himself. This book wholeheartedly rufutes these claims and takes a concise look at the necessity of polygamy and the benefits of this practice.

 

 

Marriage and What “People Say”

 

Beloved Muslims! Do you not think that the spreading of impermissible acts necessitates that we re-evaluate the issue of marriage and facilitate it? corruption is approaching us from all directions, for it seems that what we had on the ground was not enough, that they (the disbelievers) have attacked us even from the skies (i.e., by means of satellites). They have disseminated evil everywhere, to the extent that teenagers are surely exposed to prohibitions through satellite channels and they may even watch pornography; they see naked or virtually nude women on television – what, then, is the solution?

 

Raising Children In Islam

 

Taken from introduction: Worship and doctrine are two inseperable things because doctrine represents the theoretical aspect of Islam whereas worship represents its practical aspect. So, worship is the soul of doctrine that gives it life and the mirror that reflects its image. When a child turns his little face to his lord and responds to His Commands he is, by this, only fulfilling and satisfying a natural instinct inside him. Dr. Sa’id al-Buti referred to this saying, “But in order to make the doctrine strongly implanted in the soul, it must be irragated with the water of worship. Worship in its various images and shapes will make the doctrine grow and flourish in the heart and will make it stand firm in front of the hardships of life”.
