The Order in Which Dhikr is Read

May 15, 2018 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Abdul-Kareem al-Khudair, may Allaah protect him said, “Attention should be paid to the issue of reading adhkaar in a particular set order. Many people are used to reading certain adhkaar in the morning and evening, and [also] other supplications at set times, and you will find that most of these words of remembrance are done in a particular order by them, [but] no narrations have been reported saying that this dhikr is to be said before that one [etc.]. You will find them reading it in a particular order their entire life whilst saying, ‘I’m not using this arrangement as a part of this act’s worship it’s just that if I change the order and say this one before that one or vice versa I forget some of them,’ if that is their intention then there is no problem with that but sometimes they should try to [change the order and] say one earlier and delay another in the order [they are said] and not use that arrangement as a part of that act’s worship.”

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 Repentance

April 1, 2018 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Turning back to Allaah is by feeling remorseful at what one has done, and wishing one hadn’t done the sin, and by resolving not to go back to it in the future—it is not a condition that a person doesn’t do that sin again, the condition is that he resolves not to go back to it—then if it does so happen that his soul entices him and he does it again, his initial repentance for that earlier sin is sound, but he must repent afresh from the following sin which he has just committed.”

Al-Liqaa ash-Shahri, 37.

Make Du’aa for Every Single Need

February 18, 2016 § Leave a comment


Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “You must, Yaa akhi, supplicate to Allaah for all of your general and specific concerns, both the difficult and easy ones, and if the only thing to be gained from making du’aa was the fact that it was considered worship of Allaah, it would befit a person to covet it.”

Fatawa Arkaan al-Islaam, p. 45.

Uthaimeen On What to do When One’s Eemaan Deteriorates

November 25, 2015 § Leave a comment


Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “If you see yourself relapse/deteriorate, pick yourself up by repenting and seeking Allaah’s Forgiveness and by asking Him to keep you firm, and don’t become careless, and neither say, “Inshaa Allaah, my eemaan will become stronger,” [without doing anything about it], instead from right now—from the moment you feel that you are ill—you must implement the cure.”

Tafseer Surah an-Nisaa, vol. 2, p. 53.

On Your Devil

Ibn al-Qayyim said, “So whoever does not punish his devil in this abode through the remembrance of Allaah تعالى and tawheed, and seeking forgiveness from Him and obeying Him, then his devil will punish him in the Hereafter with the torment of the Fire—so everyone must punish his devil or else his devil will punish him.”

Badaa’i’ut-Tafseer, vol. 5, p. 450.
