South Wales Dawah blog is a blog for Salafi bookstore Cardiff. The bookstore is a non-profit making store where you can purchase authentic Islamic Books, CDs and Islamic clothing. Our goal is to call the people to the Quran and the Sunnah with the understanding of the Companions of the Prophet ( Salla Allaahu Alayhi Wassalam) pure and free from any additions, deletions and alterations. As those first three generations of Muslims understood and implemented it. As the Prophet (Salalaahu Alayhi Wasalam) said (The best of mankind is my generation (the Companions), then those who come after them, then those who come after them) Reported by Bukhaari and Muslim. Also to have a link with the scholars of Ahlu-Sunna and Their students of knowledge because the Prophet (Salalaahu Alayhi Wasalam) said (Indeed, the Scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets. They do not leave behind Dinar or Dirham; but rather they leave behind knowledge. Whoever acquires it, has indeed acquired an abundant portion “of the inheritance”) (Reported by Imaam Ahmad).

Hassan As-Somali Refutes Anwar Al-Awlaki

Concerning Knowledge...

Wednesday, 20 June 2007

Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah said: "al-'Ibaadah (worship) is obedience to Allaah by following that which He ordered upon the tongues of His Messengers." He also said: "al-'Ibaadah (worship) is a comprehensive term covering everything that Allaah loves and is pleased with - whether saying or actions, outward or inward." [Majmoo'ul Fataawaa (10/49)]

Imaam al-Aajurree said: The seeker of knowledge should know that Allaah - The Mighty and Majestic - has made the worship of Allaah obligatory upon him. And that this worship is not possible without knowledge, the seeking of which has also been made obligatory upon him. He should also realize that ignorance is not befitting for a believer. He should seek knowledge in order to dispel ignorance from himself, and to worship Allaah - The Mighty and Majestic - as Allaah has commanded, not as he desires to worship Him. So the seeker of knowledge should strive hard in his quest, be sincere in his striving, and not be amazed with himself. Rather he should recognize that this is a favour from Allaah upon him, since it was Allaah who gave him the ability to acquire such knowledge, by which he is able to fulfill his obligations and keep away from that which is forbidden. [Akhlaaqul Ulamaa (p. 43).]

Imaam ash-Shaafi'ee said: It is obligatory for every Muslim to learn the Arabic tongue, to the utmost of his ability in order to be able to profess through it that there is none worthy of worship other than Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, and to recite in [the Arabic tongue] the Book of Allaah, and to speak in mentioning what is incumbent upon him - the Takbeer (of the prayer), and what [other matters] are commanded, the Tasbeeh, the Tashahhud, and others. [Ar-Risaalah (p. 93)]

'Abdullaah Ibn Mas'ood said: Indeed I hold that a person forgets knowledge he used to know because of the sins that he commits. [Related by Wakee' in Az-Zuhd (no. 329), and it's chain of narration is authentic.]

Wakee' said: I seek help in memorization by abandoning sin, and disobedience. [Related by Ibn Hibbaan in Rawdhatul 'Uqalaa (p. 39).]

Soundness of Manhaj

Wednesday, 13 June 2007

By Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan
The correctness of ones manhaj determines entry into Paradise or the Fire - so let all those who oppose any aspect of the Salafee manhaj beware and save themselves before it's too late!
So the soundness of manhaj – or lack thereof – determines a persons entry into Paradise or the Fire.

[Q]: Is entry into Paradise or the Fire dependent upon the soundness of manhaj (methodology)? [2]

[A]: Yes, if the manhaj is sound, then the person will be from amongst the people of Paradise; since he will be upon the manhaj of the Messenger (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and manhaj of the Salafus-Saalih. He will be from amongst the people of Paradise by the permission of Allaah. If he traverses a misguided methodology, then he will be an innovator in the Fire.” [3] So the soundness of manhaj – or lack thereof – determines a persons entry into Paradise or the Fire.

[Q]: What is the true statement with regards to reading the books of the innovators and listening to their tapes?

[A]: As for the person who is a beginner, or a student of knowledge, or someone from amongst the common-folk, or the one who does not read, except for sake of perusal; not for the sake of refutation or explaining their condition, then these are not permissible for him to read. This is due to the reason that they will affect his heart [4] and cause him to have doubt, so he will fall into their evil. So it is not permissible to read the books of the people of misguidance, except for those from amongst the people of knowledge who specialize in refuting them and warning against them.

About Holding on to the Sunnah...

Friday, 08 June 2007
That which seperates the people of truth and the people of falsehood is the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam). A jewel-filled section discussing topics such as 'The Saved Sect', Sticking to the Correct Manhaj In Times of Fitnah and 'Lessons In Manhaj'.

Al Haakim said: I heard ar-Rabee' [saying]: I heard ash-Shaafi'ee, and indeed he was narrating a hadeeth. So a man said to him: Will you implement this o Abaa Abdullaah? So he said: If I narrate an authentic hadeeth from the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam) and I don't implement it, then you can testify that my intellect has left! [Reported by Ibn Abee Haatim in Aadaabush Shaafi'ee Wa Munaaqibuhu (p. 93), and by Imaam adh-Dhahabee in Mukhtasir Al Uloow' (no. 197) It's chain of narration is authentic. It was authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaanee in Sifatus Salaah (fifth edition) (p. 33)]

A man came to Imaam Maalik Ibn Anas (radiyallaahu 'anhu) and said: From where should I put on the ihraam? So he said: From the place where the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam) stopped and put on ihraam. So the man said: So what if I put on ihraam from farther than that? So Maalik said: I do not advise that. So he said: What do you dislike about that? He said: I dislike the Fitnah upon you. He said: And what is the Fitnah in increasing the good?! So he said: Verily Allaah the Exalted says, "So let those who oppose his (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) command beware that a Fitnah may strike them, or a painful punishment." And which Fitnah is greater than you specifying an action with virtue which was not specified by the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam)? [Related Abu Shaamah in his book Baa'ith 'alaa Inkaarul Bid'ah Wal Hawaadith (p. 14). Quoted by Abee Bakr Al Khallaal.]
