Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki speaks about the concept of tolerance and how, for centuries, Muslims have always been the most tolerant towards “minorities” living among Muslims under the Islamic state.
Find out who the real Muhammad (pbuh) was. He was a lover of the environment, a women’s rights liberator, a carer of the orphan, a man of mercy and of justice. This isn’t only a response to the cheap film that was made but also a means to let everyone know who Muhammad (pbuh) truly was. THE GREATEST MAN TO WALK THIS EARTH!!!

يقول ابن بدران رحمه الله في “: المدخل” :” أعلم أننا أهتدينا – بفضله تعالى – أثناء الطلب إلى قاعدة: وهي أننا كنا نأتي إلى المتن أولا ، فنأخذ منه جملة كافية للدرس ، ثم نشتغل بحل تلك الجملة من غير نظر إلى شرحها ، ونزاولها حتى نظن أننا فهمناها .ثم نقبل على الشرح فنطالعه المطالعة الأولى إمتحانا لفهمنا ، فإن وجدنا فيما فهمناه غلطا صححناه ، ثم أقبلنا على تفهم الشرح على نمط على نمط ما فعلناه في المتن .ثم إذا إذا ظننا أننا فهمناه راجعنا حاشيته – إن كان له حاشية – مراجعة إمتحان لفكرنا .فإذا علمنا أننا فهمنا الدرس تركنا الكتاب وأشتغلنا بتصوير مسائله في ذهننا فحفظناه حفظ فهم وتصور لا حفظ تراكيب وألفاظ ثم نجتهد على أداء معناه بعبارات من عندنا ، غير ملتزمين تراكيب المؤلف .ثم نذهب إلى الأستاذ للقراءة عليه ، وهنالك نمتحن فكرنا في حل الدرس ، ونقوم ما عساه أن يكون به من اعوجاج .ونوفر الهمة على ما يورده الأستاذ مما هو زائد على المتن والشرح”
Ibn Badraan [A famous Hanbali Scholar]– may Allah have mercy on him – said in Al-Madkaha:
“Know! that certainly we were guided – by the favour of Allah (SWT) to a principle, and that is:
We firstly used to approach a text [in fiqh], and then we would take a clause/sentence from it to study. Then we would busy ourselves in unravelling [i.e. understanding] that sentence without looking at its explanation and pursue it until we believed that we have understood it.
Then we would approach the explanation, we would read it properly once as an examination for our understanding. If we found that what we understood was not correct, then we would correct it.
Then we would turn toward the understanding of the explanation in the manner which we did the text.
Then if we believed that we understood it [i.e. the explanation] then we would look up it’s haashiyyah [the footnotes to it] – if there was a haashiyyah for it – as re-examination and verification for our thoughts.
If we knew that we understood the lesson then we would leave the book and kept our selves busy with picturing its issues in our minds. So we would memorise it; memorization of comprehension and concept and not the memorization of phrases and wordings.
Then we would work hard on conveying its meaning with sentences from our selves, without being adherers to the phrases of the author.
Then we would go to the teacher to read to him and there we would test our thoughts [i.e. understanding] in unravelling [i.e. explaining] the lesson and we would concern ourselves with what might be from deviation [i.e. from that which is right], and save what is significant which the teacher mentioned, which is additional to the explanation and the text.”
Ibn Taymiyyah’s treatise provides a very clear, concise and authentic view of this intriguing subject based on the Qur’an, the Sunnah, the interpretation and experience of the Sahaabah (companions of the prophet and the early scholars of Islaam. The Translator has also added an appendix consisting of a recent article written on the subject of spirit-possession and exorcism by one of the leading scholars of Saudi Arabia confirming Ibn Taymiyyah’s views as both relevant and orthodox.
