Ibn al-Uthaymeen: Nasheed is an innovation. It imitates what the Sufis innovated in the religion. [Tandheem Al-Ikhwaani al-Muslimeen p.139]
Ajeeb people see refutations of certain speakers and they still reblog them!!
Good Manners are based on four pillars, it cannot be imagined that the foundation of good manners can be established without them:
Patience will enable one to suppress anger, prevent oneself from causing harm, to be tolerant, forbearing and lenient. It also prevents one from being imprudent and hasty.
Virtue enables one to avoid anything lowly and vile, whether related to speech or actions. It enables one to acquire shyness which is the head of all goodness. It prevents one from practicing evil sins, being miserly, lying, backbiting and tale carrying.
Courage enables one to have dignity and maintain a high standard of etiquette and character. It enables one to contribute and donate, which stems from the courage of the soul and its strength, as it allows one to give up and depart with what is treasured. It allows one to suppress anger and be forbearing, because it is through ones strength and courage that he suppresses himself from causing problems and reins himself in against engaging in any verbal or physical abuse as it was said;
“The strong one is not the one who defeats others physically, rather the strong one is one who is able to control himself when angered!”
And this is the very essence of courage, and it is a characteristic with which one can subdue opponents.
Justness enables one to be fair in his mannerisms and in taking the middle of the two paths of excessiveness and negligence. It encourages one to be generous and giving - which is the middle path between being subjugated and being miserly. It encourages one to have courage - which is the middle path between being cowardly and having audacity. It enables one to be forbearing – which is the middle path between getting angry and being humiliated or degraded.
The basis of all virtuous manners are these four.

is anybody here a math major I need help with something?
Baraak Allaahu Feek
Some of you, may Allah bless you, are posting the man,Yassir Qadhi, and I must bring forth some advice to you regarding him and his companions. I ask Allah to forgive you and myself and may he open your hearts to these forthcoming advices.
Baraak Allahu Feekum
Refutation of Yasir Qadhi
If a believer falls into sin, it’s punishment would be repelled from him in ten ways:
1) He repents and therefore Allah would accept his repentance. The one who repents from a sin is as the one who hasn’t sinned.
2) He asks for forgiveness and he would therefore be forgiven.
3) He performs acts of righteousness that would erase his sins, for indeed righteous actions erase sins.
4) His brothers supplicate for him; that his sins be forgiven – while he is alive and after his death.
5) His brothers gift the reward of their actions to him so that Allah may benefit it him through them [Translator’s note: Not all actions can be gifted as reward, only those that were specified by the Qur-aan and Sunnah].
6) That his prophet Muhammad – صلى الله عليه وسلم – intercedes for him.
7) That Allah puts him through trials in the life of this world that would expiate his sins.
8) That Allah puts him through trials in the Barzakh and the Sa’iqah that would expiate his sins.
9) That Allah puts him through the trials of the Day of Resurrection and its horrors, that which would expiate his sins.
10) Or that the Most Merciful of the merciful has mercy over him.
Whoever lets these ten pass him by, then let him blame no one but himself, as Allaah the Elevated said in a Hadeeth that was narrated by His Messenger:
“O My servants, they are only your own deeds, I take them into account for you, and then give (their reward or punishment) back to you. So whoever finds good then let him praise Allah. And whoever finds other than that then let him blame no one but himself.” [Muslim #2577]

The Companions of Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam) suffered the worst forms of torture because of their adherence to the correct ‘aqeedah, and their making all worship purely and sincerely for Allaah alone, and their rejection of shirk and kufr.
From ‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood, radiyallaahu ‘anhu, who said, “The first people to openly proclaim their Islaam were seven: Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam), Aboo Bakr, ‘Ammaar and his mother Sumayyah, Suhayb, Bilaal and al-Miqdaad. So as for Allaah’s Messenger (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam), Allaah gave him protection through his uncle Aboo Taalib.
As for Aboo Bakr, Allaah gave him protection through his people. But as for the rest of them, the mushriks would take hold of them and dress them in iron armour and place them to scorch and roast in the sun. There was not one of them except that they responded to them except Bilaal, for his soul became as nothing to him for Allaah’s sake, and his people had no respect for him. So they gave him to the children who used to drag him around the streets of Makkah and he would say repeatedly, ‘(He who has the right to worship is) One, One.‘“116
In the Seerah of Ibn Hishaam, 117 there occurs: ‘Umayyah ibn Khalf used to take him (Bilaal) out in the midday heat of the sun, and throw him down upon his back, on the ground of the flat valley bed of Makkah, and he would order for a large rock to be placed on his chest. Then he would say, “By Allaah, you will stay like this until you die, unless you disbelieve in Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallam) and you worship al-Laat and al-‘Uzzaa.” So he would say, whilst he was in that condition, “(He who alone has the right to worship is) One, One.”
Sumayyah was tortured until death because of the ‘aqeedah of tawheed not because she was a political leader. From Mujaahid who said, “The first martyr in Islaam was Sumayyah the mother of ‘Ammaar. Aboo Jahl thrust a spear into her abdomen.” 118
Ibn Sa’d said, “She accepted Islaam early on in Makkah and she was one of those who was tortured to force them to abandon their religion. But she bore and endured it until Aboo Jahl came to her and thrust a spear into her abdomen and she died.” 119
 Reported by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (3/284) and he declared it saheeh and adh-Dhahabee mentioned it in Siyar A’laamin-Nubalaa (1/348) and he said, “It has a saheeh chain of narration…”
 Seerah of Ibn Hishaam (1/318).
 At-Tabaqaat of Ibn Sa’d (8/264/265). He said, “Ismaa’eel ibn ‘Umar, Abul-Mundhir related to us that Sufyaan ath-Thawree narrated to us from Mansoor from Mujaahid who said…” This is a saheeh chain of narration to Mujaahid.
 Tabaqaat Ibn Sa’d (8/264).

Today while I was walking to the bus station I see a brother maa shaa’ Allaah who has a nice beard, filling up his taxi. So I look at him and he looks at me and we both smile for 1 or 2 secs and give salam and we then go on our own way.
That made my day or evening I should say.. Wa lillaahil hamd!!
