Maximising - The - Benefit - From - Ones - Time - Ustadh - Abdulhakeem - Mitchell 

Ustadh Abdul Hakeem (hafidahullah)discusses the importance of guarding and safeguarding one's time. Shaykh ibn Baz (rahimahullah) said, "Time is more valuable than gold itself." This shows us the importance of time because it is a commodity which will aid us in our hereafter. In safeguarding and utlising our time there are affairs which we must recognise and utilise in order to aid us in using our time well. • Worship of Allah - The Purpose of our Creation Ibn Kathir (Rahimahullah): Allah created his servants to worship Him alone without any partners, so whoever obeys Allah with this command then Allah will grant them the best of rewards and whoever disobeys Him Allah will punish him with the most severe of punishments. Allah informs us that he is not in need of the servants, he created his servants, rather they are in need of him (subhanahu)in all of their affairs for indeed Allah is the one who created them and he is the one that gives them sustenance. End of speech • Good companionship Spend your time with companionship that will aid you upon good. The Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wa salam)said, "The person is upon the religion of his companion, so look to whom you take as your companion." Have companionship which aids you in worshipping Allah, participating in that which brings you benefit, enjoins the good and forbids the evil, the time you spend with him is one of benefit, seeking beneficial knowledge and acting upon it, reminding one another of Allah, a companion who wants Jannah for you just as he wants for himself. Anas ibn malik (radiaAllahu anhu) The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa salam) said, "One of you does not truly believe until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself." • Righteous Actions and Exertion upon them Do not fill ones time with the actions which are haram and actions which Allah subhanahu disapproves of, it is important to recognise that the worldly life is the place of cultivation for the aakhirah, this is where the seeds are laid down, which we seek to harvest and benefit from in the hereafter. Therefore, if a person does not exert themselves upon good, what will he have to harvest in the aakhirah? Umar ibn abdul Azeez said, "indeed the night and the day they work for you, they are in your service so work for them. Ie take advantage of them, take advanatgae of the actions of the night and the actions of the day." Abu Hurayrah (radiAllahu anhu) said he and other from the companions would split their night into three, 1/3 for sleep, 1/3 for revision of hadeeth and 1/3 for the worship of Allah (night prayer, supplication etc). Your life in this world is not eternal, so take benefit of it while you can.

Having Patience in Times of Trials - Ustadh Abdul Hakeem Mitchell 

Patience is a means of attaining good in this life and the Hereafter. Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) mentioned that Patience is upon 3 affairs. - Patience upon the obedience of Allah - Patience in staying away from disobedience - Servant patience upon calamities Benefits from the speech of Shaykhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah on affairs that aid the servant in remaining patient. A lot of the affairs he refers to are in relation to pardoning one another and forgiving one another because from the hardest means of being patient is being patient with the creation. The soul leans towards seeking vengeance and by way of this its important that the person remains patient with the harms of the person and he does not go beyond bounds in seeking vengeance. Summary of Benefits: - Nothing occurs except that Allah has willed it – this aids a person in protecting them from depression and anxiety. - How to recognise if a difficult affair is a blessing or a calamity for you. - Virtue of forgiving and pardoning the harms of others as mentioned in the Quran. - Pardoning and having good relations with others brings about goodness and peace within the hearts and brings an increase in benefit, much more than would be achieved by seeking vengeance. - The one who is patient and pardons and does not seek vengeance for himself, this increases the person in honour, due to his forgiving and pardoning. If a person pardons, he will increase in humility inwardly and outwardly will increase in honour – and Allah Knows best. - When a person pardons the people, then Allah will pardon him because the reward/recompense is based upon the form of the action itself – Shaykhul Islam said, this benefit alone is sufficient for a person to forgive and pardon others. - Being focused on vengeance causes his heart to be preoccupied with vengeance and causes a loss and waste of time, causing more harm than the calamity itself. - The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa salam) NEVER sought vengeance for himself, whilst we know he was harmed severely due to his religion and he is the example for us to follow.

14 - Kashf ush-Shubuhaat - The removal of the doubts - Abu Muadh Taqweem | Manchester 

Kashf ush-Shubuhaat – The removal of the doubts – Lesson 14 (31/10/20) 5th DOUBT — The claim that the one who rejects Shirk has rejected the intercession of the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم( Then if he says: "Do you reject the intercession of the Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم (and have you forsaken it?" Say to him: "I do not reject it nor have I abandoned it. Rather, he (صلى الله عليه وسلم (is the intercessor whose intercession will sought and granted – and I truly hope for his intercession – but all intercession is for Allāh as He (وتعاىل تبارك (says: "To Allāh belongs all intercession." [Sūrah al-Zumar 39:44] And it will not occur except with Allāh's permission as He (وجل عز (says: "Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission?" [Sūrah al-Baqarah 2:255] And he (صلى الله عليه وسلم (will not intercede on anyone's behalf until Allāh has permitted him, as Allāh (وجل عز (says: "And they cannot intercede except for one with whom He is pleased." [Sūrah al-Anbiyā’ 21:28] And He is not pleased with anything other than Tawḥīd, as Allāh (وتعاىل تبارك (says: "Whoever desires other than Islām as a Religion then this will not be accepted from him." [Sūrah Āli-’Imrān 3:85] So if all intercession is for Allāh; and this will only occur after He has first permitted it; and neither the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم (nor anyone else can intercede on behalf of anyone unless Allāh permits; and since He does not permit this except for the people of Tawḥīd – it should become clear that all intercession is for Allāh so I seek it from Him. So I say: 'O Allāh, do not deprive me of his intercession; O Allāh let him intercede on my behalf and whatever is similar to this.'" 6th DOUBT – The claim that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم (was given intercession and we are simply seeking that But if he says: "The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم (was granted intercession and I seek it from the one it was given to". Then the response to this is that: “Allāh granted him the right of intercession but prohibited you from this action, as He said: ‘So do not invoke anyone along with Allāh.’ [Sūrah al-Jinn 72:18] So if you call upon Allāh to request that He permit His Prophet to intercede on your behalf then obey him when he said: ‘So do not invoke anyone along with Allāh.’” [Another response to this is that]: “Indeed, intercession has been granted to other than the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم (as well. It has been authentically established that the Angels will intercede, the awliyā’ and the afrāt will intercede. So are you saying that since Allāh has granted these people the ability to intercede, then I should seek it from them? If you are saying this then you have returned to the worship of the righteous people, which Allāh mentioned in His Book. But if you say no, then you have invalidated your claim – that ‘Allāh has granted him intercession then I will seek it from whomever Allāh has granted it.’" Today we covered: • Is it permissible to make du’aa at the grave of the Prophet ﷺ? • What the people will say on the day of judgement • The intercession of the different types of people • It is not permissible to call upon the Angels and the righteous • Q&A session The English translation of the workbook are available on: file:///D:/Learn%20About%20Islam/Audio/Abu%20Muaadh%20Taqweem%20Aslam/Kashf%20Ush-Shubuhaat/Kashf%20ash-Shubuhaat%20workbook.pdf Recorded at the Salafi Centre of Manchester on 31/10/20 and streamed live on www.SunnahRadio.Net
