  • A Believer Should Not Be Stung Twice from the Same Hole!

    To be precautious and prudent is a Prophetic directive, especially when dealing with those who have been proven deceitful and dishonest.

  • In Da‘wah: Violence Begets no Good

    Using gentleness with those who are hoped to embrace Islam is a desirable thing, in order to attract their hearts to it. This is with regards to the disbelievers; what then should the attitude be towards someone who is hoped to make repentance while he is a Muslim who believes in Allah and His Messenger?

    Indeed, all sins poison the heart and lead to its illness and destruction. They sicken it and define its will as other than what Allah The Almighty wants [of His servant], in effect being as harmful to the heart as actual poisons are to the body. Imaam Ibn Al-Mubaarak, may Allah have mercy upon him, said, “I have seen that sins cause the death.. More
