"The US, the UK and its allies have repeatedly killed Muslim civilians over the past decade (and before that), but defenders of those governments insist that this cannot be “terrorism” because it is combatants, not civilians, who are the targets. Can it really be the case that when western nations continuously kill Muslim civilians, that’s not “terrorism”, but when Muslims kill western soldiers, that is terrorism? Amazingly, the US has even imprisoned people at Guantanamo and elsewhere on accusations of “terrorism” who are accused of nothing more than engaging in violence against US soldiers who invaded their country."

Sufyan Ath-Thawrī - wrote to ‘Abbad ibn ‘Abbad al-Khawwas al-Arsuf
”..Beware of the Rulers. Beware of coming near to them and of mixing with them in any of the affairs. Beware of being deceived, so that it said to you: Intercede [for me], so that you help one oppressed, or repel an act of oppression - because that is from the deception of Iblis, which the wicked reciters have taken as a means to attain a favorable position. It used to be said: Beware of the fitnah (trial) of the ignorant worshipper and the wicked scholar, because the trial of these two is indeed a trial for everyone put to trial…”
Everyone claims to follow Salaf but does that actually mean? According to one of classical scholars Imam Al-Awzaa’ee: “It used to be said that there were five things that the companions of Muhammad (saw) and those who followed them in goodness were upon: (1) sticking to the jamaa’ah, (2) following the sunnah, (3) maintaining the masjids, (4) reciting the Quraan, and (5) making jihaad in Allaah’s cause.” [Hilyah, 8/142]
“If you want to know if Allah loves you, then look at yourself after you finish reading/listening to the Qur’an. If you are longing for and cannot wait until you act upon what you have read, then know that Allah loves you and is preparing you to be from the people of the Qur’an whom Allah will ensure they have a righteous ending”
Forgive me anyone for if anyone has felt offended by any of my posts, statements, or in general if I have brought you feelings of harm or sadness. I love all my brothers for the sake of Allah, and I pray the Almighty grants us shade on a day there is no shade but his. I admire all my dear sisters that are practising the deen, that have a zeal for knowledge and desire the best for this Ummah. I desire the best for you and would surely protect your honour in front of the disbelievers. Although, masaa’il (issues) related to the deen brings about many arguments, hot debates, and so on.. this should never lead to any sort of personal hatred or envy. We are one Ummah, and we are like bricks to one another that hold eachother firm together. Allah says to hold firmly to rope of Allah, and do not be divided amongst yourselves.. the scholars of Islam say this rope is the Quran and the Sunnah. Unfortunately being a part of a jama’ah, can lead to a disease called Hizbiyyah (partisanship). Where love and hate is based upon this, and everyone else from the Ummah is disregarded. It should never result to this, rather if issues and differences arise we must resort back to the Quran and the Sunnah and the understanding of the Salaf, having no inclinations to any group or any personality, but rather to the authentic text. A sahabi was guaranteed Jannah because he would go to sleep every night not having hatredy, jealousy or envy for his fellow Muslims. The knowledge that Allah has blessed us with, we need to understand this knowledge should be something that allows us to be more humble, not more arrogant.
May Allah forgive me for my shortcomings and grant us all sound understanding of his religion, for if Allah desires good for a person, he gives him understanding of the deen.
لا تناظر أهل الباطل ولو ملكت الحجة حتى تُجيد استعمالها، ليس خوفاً على الحق وإنما خوفا عليك، فقد يُقتل الإنسان بالعصا، وبيده سيف لا يُحسنه
Do not debate the people of falsehood even if you possess strong evidence, until you know how to use it; not out of fear for the truth but out of fear for yourself. A person may get killed by a stick while he has a sword in his hand that he does not know how to use.
“My close friend (صلى الله عليه وسلم) ordered me with seven things:
- To love the poor and to be close to them;
- To look to those who are less than me and not to those who are above me;
- To maintain the ties of kinship even if they break them off;
- To not ask anyone for anything;
- To say the truth even if it is unpleasant;
- To not fear the blame of the blamers instead of Allāh;
- And to increase in saying ‘there is no might nor power except with Allāh,’ as it is from the treasures that are underneath the Throne.”
[Declared sahīh by Ahmad Shākir in ‘’Umdat at-Tafsīr’ (1/700), al-Albānī in ‘Sahīh at-Targhīb wat-Tarhīb’ (2233, 2320, 2525, and 2868) and ‘Mishkāt al-Masābīh’ (5187), and Muqbil al-Wād’iī in ‘as-Sahīh al-Musnad’ (277).]
Qadi Iyad said about Imam Malik on the authority of al-Tinnisi:
We were with Malik while he was surrounded by his companions, when a man belonging to the people of Nasibin said, ‘There is a group of people among us called Sufis. They eat excessively, then they begin to sing, and then they get up and dance.‘
Malik asked him, ‘Are they children?‘
The man replied, ‘No.’
Malik asked, ‘Are they insane?‘
The man replied, ‘No. They are a group of mashayikh [religious scholars] and other intelligent people.‘
Malik replied, ‘I have never heard of anyone from the people of Islam doing such a thing.’
The man said, ‘But these people eat, and then get up and dance tirelessly, some of them striking their heads, and some striking their faces.‘
Hearing this, Malik laughed, then rose and went inside his house. The companions of Malik said to the man, ‘Verily you have brought bad omen to our companion. We have been in his company for more than thirty years, and we never saw him laugh until this day.’
Imām Ahmad– may Allāh have Mercy upon him – when he would walk in the streets, he would walk amongst the laborers so that nobody would point to him out of respect, and so that the people would think him to just be another laborer, and would therefore not point to him out of respect.
”..And from the bounties of Allāh – the Mighty and Majestic – is that these hearts are dealing with the Knower of the Unseen…with Allāh. Their secrets do not remain hidden for long. They might sometimes paint a different picture than what is outer and apparent in a person. However, the inner and outer realities of a person cannot bear except to eventually come back together, and to be one and the same. So, if one’s inner condition is good, Allāh will eventually make this condition apparent. Likewise, if one’s inner condition is evil, Allāh will eventually make this apparent, as well. Nobody has ever concealed something except that Allāh eventually made it known, either through a slip of his tongue, or by way of the expressions on his face. It is impossible that a human being can keep deceiving himself for long, as it is something innate that Allāh has fashioned the people upon. It is the fitrah of Allāh that the outer eventually becomes one and the same as the inner. So, if the outer happens to follow a different line than the inner for some time – with some hypocrisy, lying, showing off, etc. – this condition will not remain for long, as Allāh has made the fitrah of the human being such that it cannot sustain falsehood for long, and cannot stand being fake for an indefinite period of time.”
