Uthaimeen On Persistence in Du’aa

April 20, 2018 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “One of the most important conditions of du’aa is sincerity to Allaah عزوجل, such that in his du’aa a person feels his destitution before his Lord, and knows that Allaah تعالى will answer his du’aa, He said, “When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them) …” [2:186] … and a person needs to be insistent in his du’aa and repeat it, even if a response to it is initially delayed, or delayed a second time, let him repeat it, for Allaah تعالى might not answer a servant [of His] the first time so that he increases in his supplication to his Lord and so that he feels the need for Him even more, and it is also a test for him—will he continue asking Allaah or will he become weary and stop? So be persistent in supplicating to your Lord, brother Muslim, for He loves those who are persistent in their du’aas …”

Uthaimeen on Always Thinking About the Evil Eye

April 13, 2018 § Leave a comment


Shaikh ’Uthaimeen said, “The Evil Eye is true and something established, and if there was something that would’ve outdone qadar it would’ve been the Evil Eye. What is there that can repel its evil?

A number of things: firstly, that a person uses the legislated supplications which are recited in the morning and evening. Secondly: That he doesn’t pay it attention and that it shouldn’t be on his mind, because perhaps if he does pay it attention and it is on his mind, that thought might overcome him until he is afflicted by it or starts thinking that he is afflicted by it when he isn’t. A person must be strong, reliant upon Allaah عز وجل, entrusting his affairs to Him.”

At-Ta’leeq ala Saheeh Muslim, vol. 1, pp. 654-655.
