[Quote] Beware of I, mine, and I possess

And the Muslim should be aware of misusing "I", "mine" and "I possess", because Iblees, Fir'aun and Qaaroon were indeed tried with these three expressions...

{I am better than him} [Surah Saad 38:76] is the statement of Iblees,

{mine is the dominion of Egypt} [Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:51] is the statement of Fir'aun, and

{This has been given to me only because of knowledge I possess.} [Surah Al-Qasas 28:78] is the statement of Qaaroon.

The best place to put "I" is when the worshipper (of Allah) says: I am the sinful, mistaken, forgiveness seeking, confessing worshipper (of Allah). And "mine" when he says: the sin is mine, the fault is mine, the indigence is mine, the poverty is mine and the lowness is mine. And "I possess" when he says: (Oh Allah) forgive me what I have committed (from sins) intentionally, jokingly, mistakenly, purposely, and I possess (within me is) all of that. [This du'a is part of a whole du'a reported in Sahih Muslim 2138]

قال ابن القيم رحمه الله : وليحذر المسلم من طغيان " أنا "، " ولي "، " وعندي "، فإن هذه الألفاظ الثلاثة ابتلي بها إبليس ، وفرعون ، وقارون، ف {أنا خير منه} لإبليس، و {لي ملك مصر}  لفرعون، و {إنما أوتيته على علم عندي} لقارون. وأحسن ما وضعت " أنا " في قول العبد : أنا العبد المذنب، المخطئ، المستغفر، المعترف. " ولي "، في قوله: لي الذنب، ولي الجرم، ولي المسكنة، ولي الفقر والذل ، " وعندي " في قوله: اغفر لي جدي، وهزلي، وخطئي، وعمدي، وكل ذلك عندي

[Quote] If a Salafi Goes Astray Due to You! by Shaykh ‘Āyid Ash-Shamri

Shaykh ‘Āyid Ash-Shamri  (may Allah preserve him) stated:

This salafi, if he was to go astray due to you, due to your character, due to your harshness, due to your evil thoughts and your lies upon him–if he was to go astray (because of this), you will be held accountable (for that) on the Day of Judgment. This salafi who teaches the books of the Salaf in opposition to the Ikhwānis, in opposition to the Tablīghis, in opposition to the Takfīris, in opposition to the Ashā‘irah and the Sūfis, he teaches Tawhīd, the Sunnah and Salāh–if he was to stop the classes because of you and your tale-carrying, you will be questioned (about this) in front of Allah (‘azza wa-jall). Therefore fear Allah O brothers!

[Quote] The Strangers by Shaykh 'Abdul'azīz ibn 'Abdullāh ibn Bāz رحمه الله

Shaykh 'Abdul'azīz ibn 'Abdullāh ibn Bāz:

It was said: 'O messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم), who are the Ghurabā?'

He said, "Those who rectify when the people are corrupt." (1)

Another wording, "They rectify what the people corrupted from the Sunnah." (2)

In the Hadīth of Abī Tha'labah (رضي الله عنه):

"The reward of one of them is 50."

It was said, "O messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم), from us of them?"

He said, "Rather, from you." (3)

And the reason for that: few supporters and assisters.

And several paths of destruction and doubts.

And several paths of destruction and callers to it.

Due to this the patient during the end of times, upon knowledge and actions, his reward is 50 from amongst the companions, like the reward of 50.

Because they found assistance in the emergence of Islām, in the strength of Islām and the Muslims, a lot of assisters and destruction of the enemies.

As for the end of times then it's opposite,.

The enemies are abundant, as well as the callers of misguidance and few supporters. 

And few assistance upon truth.

[Fatawa] Slaughtering animals for jinn (Hajj)

Fatwa no. 2527:

Q: Some religious brothers come to us in the desert and advise us that if people slaughter animals as a sacrifice to the Jinn (creatures created from fire), their Salah and Hajj will be invalid. When I heard this from them, I repented to Allah for sacrificing animals to the Jinn. I had already performed Hajj, but they tell me that my previous Hajj is invalid. Is my Hajj valid or not? If it is invalid, should I perform Hajj again.

A: Sacrificing animals to the Jinn is considered Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship). If a person who commits this dies before repenting to Allah, he will abide eternally in Hellfire.

(Part No. 1; Page No. 208)

Shirk invalidates all deeds, as Allah the Exalted says (what means):  But if they had joined in worship others with Allâh, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them. (Surah Al-An‘am, 6: 88).

You should thank Allah for guiding you to Tawbah (repentance) from this grave sin which invalidates all deeds, and you must perform Hajj again. If your Tawbah is sincere, Allah has promised to forgive those who repent and change their sins into good deeds, as He says (what means):  And those who invoke not any other ilâh (god) along with Allâh, nor kill such person as Allâh has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse - and whoever does this shall receive the punishment.  The torment will be doubled to him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will abide therein in disgrace;  Except those who repent and believe (in Islâmic Monotheism), and do righteous deeds; for those, Allâh will change their sins into good deeds, and Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah Al-Furqan 25: 68-70).

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

[Quote] ​The home of the Hereafter is for those who are humble for the sake of Allāh / Shaykh Rabee bin Haadee al-Madkhalee

The home of the Hereafter is for those who are humble for the sake of Allāh

{That home of the Hereafter (i.e. Paradise), We shall assign to those who rebel not against the truth with pride and oppression in the land nor do mischief by committing crimes. And the good end is for the Muttaqūn (pious)} [Sūrah Al-Qasas 28:83]

Allāh has prepared the home of the Hereafter for those who are humble for the sake of Allāh. And whosoever is humble for the sake of Allāh then He (Allāh) will elevate him. And as for the arrogant then Allāh hates them. And this will be their destination; the Hellfire. And refuge is sought with Allāh.
