Alhamdulillaah, as of September 8th, 2011, this blog will be maintained solely for transcribed benefits from English books. For exclusive translations, articles, and class notes, please visit www.Istijabah.com. May Allaah reward you all and grant you success!

Bismillaahi-rahmaani-raheem, wa ssalaatu wa ssalaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah, wa ba’d,

The intention behind this blog is simple: To fulfill the dream of one day becoming a pilgrim at the gates of knowledge. By Allaah’s Permission, it will be wholly dedicated to providing translations of benefits, narrations, quotes, tafaseer, and fataawa conveyed by our scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’aah.

The number of our esteemed and truly wonderful mashayakh is incomprehensible and much to enumerate. But amongst the treasurers of this Ummah, that I pray, we together, benefit from are Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, Shamsu-deen al-Jawziyyah, Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee, Shaykh Bin Baaz, Shaykh wa Muhadith Al-Albaanee, Shaykh ‘Uthaymeen (rahimahumullaahu ta’aala) and many more.

During the extended stretches of time between the translations, I will place transcribed excerpts and words from English books to authorize benefit in time as much as possible bii’dhnillaah. Works that are not mine will be placed under the Transcriptions category accordingly.

It is also compulsory to afflict my readers with the vast importance (bold for enormous emphasis and compensation for its significance) of learning the Arabic language as Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah said:

The Arabic language itself is part of Islâm, and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty. If it is a duty to understand the Qur‘ân and Sunnah, and they cannot be understood without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfill the duty is also obligatory.”

Dismiss the thought that it is simply too late, too difficult to learn it, even when, although time has since slipped away like white sand. Move along, now. You can always begin anew.

May Allaah teach us what should be of benefit to us and make us benefit from what He has taught us and advance us all in knowledge, aameen.

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah, jalla-jallaluh. If I erred, then that is due to my own shortcomings and the shayateen, I seek refuge with Allaah from them.

    Uhkti the saying of
    asalaamu ‘alaa mani taba’al huda
    (peace be upon those who follow the righteous path) is not correct if it is addressed to muslims.

    It is not permissible to greet a Muslim by saying “peace be upon the one who follows true guidance”, because the Messenger only used this greeting when he wrote to non-Muslims. When you greet your Muslim brother you should say to him, al-salaamu ‘alaykum (peace be upon him). If you say, Al-salaam ‘ala man attaba’a al-huda (peace be upon the one who follows true guidance), what this implies is that this brother of yours is not one of those who follow true guidance. If there is a group of Muslims and Christians, then one should greet them in the usual manner by saying al-salaamu ‘alaykum, intending that to be addressed to the Muslims. End quote.
