Oh virtuous Shaikh! I hope that you can direct some golden advice to some of the practicing youth who devote themselves to the internet jazakallahu khairan.
In it is the sciences of the Shairah, sciences of language, sciences of manufacturing and other than that. In it is pure evil and much evil and it has reached me that it is more severe in its consequence than the satellite channels.
So my advice to my brothers in terms of the internet or satellite channels is to fear Allah in themselves and that they know that they were not created for that. They were only created for the worship of Allah azza wa jall. If they lower themselves to what resembles animals, and it is the gratification of wants and desires, then he has lost the worldly life and the hereafter.
So it is upon my Muslim brothers to guard their religion and to guard their time and not to waste this precious, precious, precious lifespan.
By Allah, one minute is more honorable than a thousand dirhams. Like this Allah says:. Send me back. So that I may do good in that which I have left behind! It is but a word that he speaks, and behind them is Barzakh a barrier until the Day when they will be resurrected. There is not a deceased person who dies, except he regrets. If he was a good doer, he will regret that he did not increase and if he was an evil doer, he will regret that he did not stop.
Guard your lifespan Oh my brother, by Allah it is more expensive than gold and silver. If a person does not waste his dirham and dirhaams, so then how does he waste this lifespan, which upon it runs happiness or misery. Oh Allah make us from the happy ones [ie.
Oh Lord of the worlds. If he was a good doer, he will regret that he did not increase and if he was an evil doer, he will regret that he did not stop [Daif Tirmidhi no.Assalamu alaykum. However, a person may be negligent in seeking knowledge, so he is sinning in that respect. In other words, it may be possible for him to learn, but he does not care to do so; or he may be told that something is haram, but he does not care.
In this case, he is falling short in this regard, and he is sinning thereby.
STATEMENT OF THE WEEK
Does it mean that a person would be excused in the sense that he is not a disbeliever but would be sinning due to his negligence in searching the truth? May Allaah reward you. All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the worlds. Declaring a person a sinner because he neglects to seek the obligatory Islamic knowledge, investigate the truth, and ask about the correct religious ruling on an act after his attention was drawn to its unlawfulness and remains indifferent towards treading the path to salvation is clear in such cases.
A person bears a sin for such acts. The person who is ignorant of a religious ruling should be judged according to whether his ignorance is excused or not.
He addressed this topic in many of his books and lessons. However, if the person falls short in learning the religious ruling in this regard, then his situation should be further investigated. He commented on those lines, saying:. Are the Sharee'ah provisions binding before acquiring knowledge of them?
Scholars held different views in this regard; some maintained that they are binding as far as the fundamental rulings of Sharee'ah are concerned, and not the branches of jurisprudence.
Other scholars held that they are binding in both, and some maintained that they are not binding in either. The most likely correct view in this regard is that the religious obligations and rulings are not binding before obtaining knowledge of them.
Before obtaining knowledge of religious obligations and rulings, the person is not obliged to abide by them. This has been evidenced by many texts of general and specific indications The Shaykh cited a number of these texts and then added:. This is why scholars said that if a person embraced Islam in a distant place far away from Muslim lands and he left out a religious obligation, committed a prohibited act, or denied an indisputably established ruling of Islam, he is not to be held accountable for that because he is excused by ignorance.
About the line that says, " However, if the person falls short in learning the religious ruling in this regard, then his situation should be further investigated, " the Shaykh commented:. This is because he could have removed this ignorance by learning, but he did not do so. If it is said that his situation should be further investigated, then that means that there cannot be a general rule in this regard.
Each situation should be investigated, and the ruling on it should be decided in the light of the circumstances of that particular situation.After completing his memorization of the Qur'an and foundational studies, he began his full-time religious studies under Sheikh Muhammad ibn 'Abd al-'Aziz al-Mutawwa' and Sheikh Ali al-Salihi in Unayzah.
These were the two teachers that sheikh 'Abd al-Rahman al-Sa'di had appointed to instruct beginning students. In the yearal-Salihi advised al-Uthaymin to enroll in the newly-opened Ma'had al-'Ilmi in Riyadhwhich he did after seeking permission from al-Sa'di. Al-Uthaymin is still considered an influential cleric within the Salafist movement. Due to his eclectic approach of quoting from all various schools of law within Sunni Islam, readers are faced with a seemingly monolithic edifice of Islamist scholarship; while some of his views are without precedent, they are still considered definitive by many Salafists today, especially those in Egypt.
A fatwa he issued was posted on the fatwa website IslamQA.
Uthaymeen also controversially supported the idea that the Green Dome of Madinah should be destroyed and the graves of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad as well as his companions, Abu Bakr and Umarshould be flattened.
In another FatwaUthaymeen claimed that someone who abandons the prayer leaves Islam and that it is therefore forbidden to remain with a husband or a wife who no longer prays. According to Uthaymeen women should be banned from driving as this "would lead the free-mixing of men and women at traffic lights, petrol stations, police checkpoints as well as other car-related encounters.

And in the hadith qudsi also is that Allah — the Exalted — said:. So, let them create an atom, or let them create a mustard seed, or let them create a fiber. And the proofs for this are many, and from the image-making that this warning applies to — according to the strongest opinion — is that which takes place when a human being draws an image of a creature with a soul by hand. This falls under the image-making that is warned against, and it is a sin from amongst the major sins. As for the image-making that takes place using instant cameras, this does not appear to fall under this, because the photographer does not draw out or try to imitate the Creation of Allah.
How excellent is he! And this is also proven by the fact that if a person writes something by hand and a photocopy is made of it, the people will not ascribe this writing to the one who made the photocopy of it. Rather, they will ascribe it to the one who originally wrote it, and people still preserve copyrights in this manner. They would not say that this person who made the photocopy did a good job of copying the writing precisely using this innovative technology.
In fact, a blind man can be given this task, or a man can perform this task in the dark. How excellent he is! How did he copy this handwriting so precisely? And to in order to say that photographs are allowed, a condition must be met that they do not lead to what is forbidden, because the permissible things that lead to the forbidden are in turn forbidden.

Pinging is currently not allowed. However one should note that there is a difference of opinion amongst our scholars on this point. Consequently, there is no need for photography and propagation takes place without it. It is not permissible to use that which is prohibited for the purpose of propagation. As for sisters posting their pictures online, then no doubt this is haraam, so this fatwa of Ibn Uthaymeen in the above post is NOT promoting that… And fear Allaah, The One Swift in reckoning, so that you may attain success.
What is the proof on saying that video recording is allowed for dawah purpose?!!! I agree with shaykh Fawjan that if it is haram then haram on everything fullstop! This is a simple difference in understanding and as muslims we are required to teach our selves that much religion and sharia that we can understand each thing and clearly follow it.
Now I would disagree with the Mr.I stopped speaking to my older brother for a period of years, and that was [only] to avoid problems — so what is the ruling regarding that? And is what I did correct? We have an elderly grandfather who is particularly ill mannered. And we fear Allaah if we were to leave him to sit by himself, and yet if we sit with him, he is very obscene in his speech — something which is not befitting of someone of his age!
After what I have experienced of her for the last 14 years, I no longer want to be responsible for her.
STATEMENT OF THE WEEK
I have been married for 5 years [now], and [unfortunately] there is always [some sort of] quarrel in the family. I have a mother and young brothers for whom I am solely responsible — as I am the [only] one who works and financially supports them.
I am experiencing a problem with my wife. I live [together] with my father, my mother, my wife and my brothers in one house, and sometimes I bring something specifically for my wife to eat — without my parents knowing [about it]. And privately together, my wife and I eat; so what is the ruling regarding that? Is calling the mother by her name considered as [being] disobedient to her?
And [what] if I have become used to this, and she is fine with that — so would this be permissible? It is not permissible to take a photograph of anyone except with his permission… Sharing Print WhatsApp Tweet. Sharing Print WhatsApp Tweet.

However, the astute observer of this awakening will find that there are many problems that hinder its progress; problems that have prompted some scholars, callers to Islam, and students of knowledge to lay down some guidelines that the youth of this blessed awakening should adhere to and follow.
