Aboo Thaabit

I do not like doing this but I saw a need for it due to the numerous brothers and sisters who ask, who is Aboo Thaabit? Who does he study with etc? And in reality this is something important i.e. that you know who you take your knowledge from (you ask with manners).

Thus I decided to write a list of the main/some scholars I have/am studied/studying with and I ask Allaah to save me both from riyaa’ and the evil eye.

If after reading this you still do not find peace of mind studying  with me, I ask Allaah to guide you towards someone much better than myself whom you will benefit more from.

Gems of Madeenah

So I try to make the entries on the website knowledge orientated, however from time to time I give brothers and sisters insight into the life here in Madeenah, those rare moments that you’ll treasure for a life time.

One of the strangest things that one encounters here in Madeenah (even Makkah) is that people are so fluent in almost all languages? Like the taxi drivers, the money exchange clerks etc they are all fluent in so many different languages you’d be amazed.

Just the other day I went to exchange some money by the haram and as I stood in the line I saw the people in front of me all talking in their own languages, you have to keep in mind that most of these people are poor people from far away countries so chances that they’ll learn arabic are very slim.

And I saw one man shouting in turkish at the clerk behind the desk who clearly was saudi yet he was talking back in turkish to him and on his right side another haaji from indonesia shouted out in their language and the clerk just turned his head and started conversating with this man in his own language.

This carried on and on, every new person who came, this man seemed to know their language, I thought this is ridicules! Even if I made up a new language on the spot I felt like this man would be able to keep up a conversation with me! I mean I speak four languages and even I was impressed with this man (maashAllaah tabaarakAllaah).

And then it was my turn and he looked at me and smiled “Ahlan wa Sahlan…”

Mixed emotions.

Today is a happy day as well as a sad day (in some ways). It is happy in the sense that tomorrow I will be returning to the city of our beloved Prophet after having been on a summer holiday, however this means I will have to leave my family and dear mother not to mention the few friends I have, behind.

I am sad and excited at the same time, I can’t wait to be back in Madeenah! But saying goodbye is never easy. I do realise how fortune I am, and that many people would (perhaps) cut their little toes off just to be in my shoes (I dont have big feet, it’s just a figure of speech lol) but alhamdulilah no doubt, as soon as you emerge yourself in the knowledge again, you tend to forget your family (in a good way) and you might only get home sick once or twice the entire year.

A brother asked me the other day, what do you miss the most about Madeenah? I didn’t really have to think much before I said, the company of the pious and knowledgeable, because it has a very big effect on you. Whether it be in the Prophet’s Masjid or the University itself, you always have people who love Islaam and are more knowledgeable than yourself and just being in their company brightens up your day a lot.

So if the da’wah slows down somewhat, then please keep in mind I am back studying and might get busy from time to time. I am sure brothers and sisters will understand.

I leave you with some wise words the famous Companion Salmaan al-Faarisi once said:

It is not the Land that makes a person pious, rather it is his deeds that do so.

[al-Maqaalaat]

Who is better, Prophet Muhammad or Prophet Yunus?

The Prophet mentioned in a saheeh hadith:

…Whoever says, I am better than (Prophet) Yunus ibn Matta has lied. [Ibn Maajah]

Our noble Shaykh of Madeenah ‘Abdul Muhsin al-‘Abbaad said explaining this:

What is known is that the Prophet is the best of creation and the scholars explain this hadith in different ways. Some say the word “I” does not mean the Prophet himself, but rather any other slave, (meaning if a muslim was to say I am better than Yunus) this is because a person might read the story of Yunus and think bad of him (which is not  allowed).

Another explanation is that this was said by the Prophet before he  truly knew his high-ranking, or that it is out of humbleness and to defend his fellow Prophet.

How to get accepted into Madeenah Uni

Now there is no simple answer or way to this, as muslims we believe in the Qadr of Allah. If it is written for you it will happen and if not then do not be sad about it.

How to get accepted into Madeenah Uni

Now there is no simple answer or way to this, as muslims we believe in the Qadr of Allah. If it is written for you it will happen and if not then do not be sad about it. Disclaimer!  Please remember this is in no way a promise, even if you did implement these things it does not guarantee your acceptance. 1. Sincerity Ask yourself, why do you want to go to Madeenah and study? Is it to become someone? To make a name for yourself? Most of you might say of course not, but then ask yourself, are you actively seeking knowledge where you are now? If not, what makes you think you will do so in Madeenah? 2. Du'aa from the Parents This is very important, yet we see a lot of people wasting this opportunity. They might feel shy etc. Be kind to your parents and ask them to make du'aa for you, remind them constantly. The Prophet told us that the du'aa of the parent  is always accepted so make the most of it. When I applied to the uni, my father took me to his father all the way in Somalia, now my grandfather is a bedouin about 90 years old, so when we came there my father entered my grandfathers little hut explaining to him that I wanted to go to the city of the Prophet and learn the Qur'aan and the Sunnah, afterwards I was called in and my grandfather made a lot of du'aa for me. The point is, try to get du'aa from your parents, uncles, even righteous (living) people in general. 3. Know someone here  When applying, try to come here in person have all your papers ready, if possible try to get a senior student to go with you into the office and by senior I mean a doctor or the likes of it. Be open and polite, try to get across how much you want this, inform them about the ignorance that is prevalent back home, basically pour your heart out within limits and do not lie or be too forceful. 4. Memorize the Qur'aan  Memorize the entire Qur'aan or as much of it as you can, it will really improve your chances. The haafidh of the Qur'aan is blessed in this world and the hereafter, the fact that you made time in your life and finished the book of Allah will show that you are a serious student and every muslim respects a haafidh when he meets one. 5. Keep trying  If you do not get in the first time you apply, keep applying, I personally know a few brothers who got accepted not the first time not even the second time but the third time they applied, so do not give up! That's it for now, but as a last point of advice, do not get your heart attached to much, meaning a lot of people apply every year and only a few people get accepted, make  your aim seeking knowledge whether it is in Madeenah or not, apply to other places aswell, keep your options open. If you go for an interview do not get nervous, make du'aa and Allah will help you. When I applied for the uni I applied for the faculty of Qur'aan, I was so nervous because you had to be haafidh for this faculty and they actually test your Qur'aan but I had been ill for a while and hadn't reviewed it properly. So I sat there thinking to myself you will surely flunk now Aboo Thaabit! How can you revise the whole Qur'aan in two mins?! So I opened up my Qur'aan and it opened up on Surah al-An'aam I just started reading thinking to myself how silly is this? Then the old man called me in and said to me, so you're a haafidh, I cleared my throat and said Alhamdulilah I am, so he opened his Qur'aan and guess what? He tells me to read the exact same verses I just read!

وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا

What should you reply if someone sneezes for a fourth time?

Shaikh Ibn 'Uthaymeen - may Allaah have mercy on him - said:   "If someone sneezes the first time, you respond to them by saying 'YarhamakAllaah' (may Allaah have mercy on you) whereupon that person responds by saying YahdeekumuAllaah wa yuslih baalakum (may Allaah guide you and rectify your affairs). The second time the person sneezes the same thing is repeated and similarly on the third time. However the fourth time , if he already had said this three times before, he then says (to the person sneezing) 'AafaakAllaah or ShafaakAllaah innaka mazkuum (may Allaah cure you, verily you are sick)...and the person sneezing replies by saying 'AafakAllaah or ShafaakAllaah or something similar that was said to him."   [Liqaa baab al-Maftooh 175]   Aboo Thaabit: So the fourth time sneezing it goes like this:   Muhammad sneezes: Alhamdulilaah Ibraaheem: ShafaakAllaah innaka mazkuum Muhammad: ShafaakAllaah (may Allaah cure you too)
