On 04, Dec 2012 | In Salaf / سلف, Sisters / أخوات, Tazkiyah / تزكية | By Abu 'Aaminah

عَنْ عَاصِمٍ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: كُنَّا نَدْخُلُ عَلَى حَفْصَةَ بِنْتِ سِيرِينَ، وَقَدْ جَعَلَتِ الْجِلْبَابَ هَكَذَا، وَتَنَقَّبَتْ بِهِ فَنَقُولُ لَهَا رَحِمَكِ اللهُ قَالَ اللهُ تَعَالَى: {وَالْقَوَاعِدُ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ اللَّاتِي لَا يَرْجُونَ نِكَاحًا فَلَيْسَ عَلَيْهِنَّ جُنَاحٌ أَنْ يَضَعْنَ ثِيَابَهُنَّ غَيْرَ مُتَبَرِّجَاتٍ بِزِينَةٍ} [النور: 60] هُوَ الْجِلْبَابُ قَالَ فَتَقُولُ لَنَا: أِيُّ شَيْءٍ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ؟ فَنَقُولُ: {وَأَنْ يَسْتَعْفِفْنَ خَيْرٌ لَهُنَّ} [النور: 60] فَتَقُولُ: ” هُوَ إِثْبَاتُ الْجِلْبَابِ “

[الإمام البيهقي في السنن الكبرى ,13534]

From ‘Aasim al-Ahwaal who said: “We used to enter upon Hafsah bint Seereen (a tabi’eeyyah), she would put on her jilbaab like this and covered her face with it. Then we would say to her: May Allaah have mercy on you. Allaah تعالى said:

“And women of post-menstrual age who have no desire for marriage – there is no blame upon them for putting aside their outer garments [but] not displaying adornment.” [Soorah an-Noor (24):60].

Are you better than the Salaf in Wisdom and Understanding?

On 06, Nov 2012 | In Articles, Refutations, Salaf / سلف | By Abu 'Aaminah

It is strange that today we find people allergic to the use of the term “Salaf”. Once you mention this term, they don’t listen to anything else and start complaining “Salaf, Salaf, Salaf, this is all that you have”. They say that since the times have changed, they have increased in wisdom than our righteous salafs. They have their own logical opinion on everything, and they call this opinion as wisdom. Strange indeed, has become the affairs of this ummah.

On 24, Sep 2012 | In Articles, Salaf / سلف, Tazkiyah / تزكية | By Abu 'Aaminah

Shaykh Ahmad ibn ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Qudaamah al-Maqdisee (rahimahullaah) mentions in his book, “Mukhtasar Minhaaj al-Qaasideen”:

قيل : إن عيسى عليه السلام رأى الدنيا في صورة عجوز هتماء عليها من كل زينة .فقال لها : كم تزوجت ؟قالت : لا أحصيهم .قال : فكلهم مات عنك أو كلهم طلقك ؟قالت : بل كلهم قتلت،فقال عيسى عليه السلام : بؤساً لأزواجك الباقين، كيف لا يعتبرون بأزواجك الماضين، كيف تهلكينهم واحداً بعد واحد، ولا يكونون منك على حذر .
