The effects of ungratefulness!

Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

This one ayah is sufficient for every sincere Muslim to understand the significance of being grateful to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, and at the same time know the side effects of being ungrateful to one’s Sustainer!  Continue reading

How Tafseer is Performed

By Shaykhul Islam, Ibn Taymiyyah

If you ask what is the best method of tafsir, the answer is that the best way is to explain the Qur’an through the Qur’an. For, what the Qur’an alludes to at one place is explained at the other, and what it says in brief on one occasion is elaborated upon at the other. But if this does not help you, you should turn to the Sunnah, because the Sunnah explains and elucidates the Qur’an. Imam Abû ‘Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Idris ash-Shafi’i has said: “All that the Prophet, peace be upon him, has said is what he has derived from the Qur’an.” Allah has said:

We have sent down to you the book in truth that you may judge between me, as Allah guides you; so do not be an advocate for those who betray their trust. [al-Qur’an 4:105]

Three Different Natures

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

In the creation of Allah the Almighty there are three different types: the first is that given to absolute obedience and complete self-surrender whose role is completed with its submission and is manifested in the angels prostrating, one and all, to Adam as commanded by their Lord. The second type is that of absolute disobedience and spiteful arrogance, while the third is that of human nature. We will concentrate on the characteristics of the latter two types and how they work.

Allah the Almighty says

{And [Allah] said: “What has prevented you from prostrating yourself when I commanded you? He [Iblis] answered: “I am nobler than he: You created me out of fire, while You created him out of clay.”}(Al-A`raf 7: 12)
