An excerpt taken from the ChapterListening to The ‘Eid Khutbah

Al-Haafidh Ibn Battal mentioned in ‘Sharh Saheeh al-Bukhaaree’, vol.2, pg. 572: “The scholars considered the people talking as the Imaam gives the khutbah as being makrooh (disliked).”

Regarding the hadeeth: “Indeed, we will give the khutbah, thus whoever wishes to stay for the khutbah is to sit and stay and whoever wishes to leave, may leave.”

The majority of the People of Knowledge are of the opinion that this hadeeth is mursal and from those scholars who were of this opinion include: Ibn Ma’een, Abu Zur’ah ar-Raazee, an-Nasaa’ee, Abu Daawood, al-Bayhaqee and al-Waadi’ee. And mursal is from the categories of weak hadeeth.

Excerpt taken from the article ”The Supplication For Laylatul Qadr & Some Points of Benefit Related To It ” BY ABOO HAATIM M. FAROOQ

Ibn Rajab (rahimahullaah) said:

“Al-‘Afuww (The One Who pardons greatly) is from The Names of Allaah The Most High; and He overlooks the wrongdoings of His servants, He is The One Who erases their trace from them. He Loves to pardon; and so He Loves to pardon His servants, He likewise Loves from His servants that they should pardon each other, so if they pardon each other; He conducts His pardon with them; and His Pardon is more beloved to Him than His Punishment.”[2]

°• The Wisdoms Behind The Legislation of Fasting  °•

Shaikh Ahmad An-Najmee


With regard to some of the wisdoms in fasting, Shaikh Ahmad bin Yahyaa An-Najmee (rahimahullaah) said:


Firstly: It is a spiritual exercise of the soul due to the withholding itself from its desires and that which is beloved to it.

Secondly: That the abandonment of food and drink as well as carnal desires during this time, being done out of worship of Allaah; The Mighty and Majestic accedes to a person an increase in his Eemaan along with strength in his being wary of the forbidden affairs and abstaining from non permissible desires.
