June 16, 2012 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “It has become well-known among many people that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ascended [to the Heavens] on the 27th night of the month of Rajab—but this has no basis, so whoever introduces something into Allaah’s Religion which is not a part of it will have nothing but trouble and difficulty, and his action is rejected, his way misguided: the Prophet عليه الصلاة والسلام said, ‘All innovation is misguidance, and all misguidance is in the Fire.’”

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “It is fitting that we do not incline towards this life and find reassurance in it, instead we should direct our energy to the abode of the Hereafter, and this is not incompatible with us taking pleasure in or enjoying what Allaah has made halaal for us, whilst being upright in our religion.”

Tafseer Surah al-Baqarah, vol. 3, p. 24.

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “Along with the fact that visiting a sick person is a fulfilment of the rights a Muslim has over his brother, it also brings about affection and closeness which none except someone who becomes sick and who is then visited by his brothers can perceive, for he finds [a feeling of] great love for those people who visited him and you will find that he tastes it and speaks about it amply. So along with the reward it entails, it establishes closeness amongst the Muslims.”

Ash-Sharh al-Mumti, vol. 5, p. 239.
