What Is Ad-Da'watus-Salafiyyah?

Shaikh Saalih bin 'Abdil-'Azeez Aali Shaikh said,

"There is no such thing as ”study time” for the student of knowledge! This is because all of his time is spent in seeking knowledge. In the morning and in the evening, his mind is preoccupied with the various issues of knowledge." ~ Al-Manhajiyyah fee Talabil-'Ilm"

The Problems That Persist In the Heart's Of The Youth



Thoughts and whispers that contradict the religion do not frequent the dead heart, on account it is lifeless and destroyed organ. Shaytaan  does not want more than what he is charged with. For that reason, it was said to Ibn Mas'ud  (radiyallaahu anhu) or Ibn Abbass  (radiyallaahu anhu) that the Jews say "They do not get any whispers while they pray." In other words uneasiness does not afflict them. He said, "They have spoken the truth and what can Shaytaan  do with a heart that is already ruined."

However, as for the heart that is alive, which contains a portion of faith,  Shaytaan  attacks it. There is not any leniency or pause in his assault. Shasta an casts misgivings contradicting his religion. If the servant submits to these misgivings and doubt they serve as the most severe means of destruction. Eventually, he casts doubts on this youth about his Lord, religion, and belief. Whenever Shaytaan  finds weakness and frustration in the heart, he occupies it until he separates this adolescent from his religion. On the contrary whenever Shaytaan  finds a heart that is strong and steadfast he succumbs to defeat. His scheme is feeble and as a result he is made miserable.

The whispers of Shaytaan  hurls into the heart do not affect the person if he uses the cure mentioned by the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam).

Ibn 'Abbass  (radiyallaahu anhu) narrated that a person came to the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam) and said: "I have a certain feeling within myself which being a burning ember is more desirable to me than uttering it. " The Prophet  (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam) said: "All praise is due to Allah who has rejected his scheme i.e driven away Shaytaan's evil thoughts." (Abu Daawood in his Sunan #5112).

Some people from my Companions came and said:" O Messenger of Allah  (Sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam), we find within ourselves (such a feeling) which overwhelms each one of us from speaking about it i.e he feels it is imposing to speak about it." The Prophet  ( Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam) asked: "Do you experience it?" The Companions replied, "Yes." The Prophet  (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam) replied, "That is true faith (Imaan)."  Collected by Muslim in his Saheeh #132.

The meaning of true faith is that evil thoughts that you face,  and your rejection if them does not harm your faith a single bit. In fact, rejecting these thoughts is a proof that your faith is sincere and has not been affected by any loss.

The Prophet  (Sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam) said: " Shaytaan come to one if you and says. Who has created this? Who has created that? Until he says: Who has created your Lord? When he reaches this limit,then seek refuge in Allah and in His Compassion." (Collected by Bukari in his Saheeh #149)

And in a similar there is a Hadeeth in Abu Daawood  (#4722) with a Hasan Isnad that the Prophet  (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam) said: "So! Say Allah is One, Allah is independent,  He does not give birth nor was He given birth to, then spit towards the left three times and seek refuge from the accursed Shaytaan. "

In these ahadeeth the Companions described illness to the Prophet  (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Salaam). He (Sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam) in turn prescribed four things as a remedy.

●Abstain from these temptations. This means to completely turn away from it then act as though it never existed. Then occupy yourself with the remembrance of Allah.

● Seek refuge in Allah from the whisper and the accursed Shaytaan.

● Say I believe in Allah and His Messenger  (Sallallahu alayhi wa Salaam).

●Recite Surah Al-Ikhlaas. Then spit to your left side three times and say I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Shaytaan.
