Women marrying non-muslim men

Guidance from Allah Ta'Ala - 

"They [i.e. Muslim women]are not lawful [wives] for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful [husbands] for them." 

Surah Mumtahanah ayat 10 

"Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you [O Muhammad - sallallahu alaihi was sallam] till you follow their religion." 

Surah Baqara ayat 120 

Source : Fatawa Islaamiyyah , Volume 5 ,Book of Marriage ,Section- Rulings on marrying Jewish & Christian Women , Pg -292-293 . 

Fatwa by Imaam bin Baaz (rahimahullaah). 

If it was asked : Then what is the wisdom behind permitting marriage from the Muhsanaat among the People of the Book for the Muslim men and the prohibition of marrying Muslim women for the men among the People of the Book?

The answer to that - and Allaah knows best - is to say that when the Muslims declared their belief in Allaah & His Messengers, including Musa the son of 'Imran, and 'Isa the son of Mary, peace be upon them,and what was revealed to them including the Tawrah,revealed to Musa and the Injil, revealed to 'Isa when they had believed in all of this, Allaah made the Muhsanaat from among the women of the People of the Book permissible for them, as a Grace and Mercy from Him and of His complete Benevolence towards them.

When the People of the Book disbelieved in Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) and the Mighty Book which was revealed to him , that is, the Qur'an, Allaah forbade for them the women of the Muslims, until such time as they believe in His Prophet and Messenger, Muhammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam),the last of the Prophets and Messengers.So if they believe in him, our women will be permissible for them,and they will have what we have, and what is incumbent upon us will be incumbent upon them.

And Allaah,Most Glorified is the most Just Arbitrator Who sees all of the affairs of His creatures, Who knows best what is right for them and Who is Wise in all things. Exalted, Hallowed and far above the saying of those who are astray, the disbelievers and all of the polytheists.

There is another wisdom, which is that woman is weak and quick to submit to her husband.So, if it was made permissible for the Muslim woman to marry men from among the People of the Book,it would in most cases, lead her to the religion of her husband.Som the wisdom of Allaah,Most Glorified requires that it be forbidden."

And he rahimahullaah also goes on to say for the Muslim Men marrying Jewish & Christian Women -

"But not marrying them (Jewish & Christian Women) and dispensing with them in favor of Muhsanaat from aong the believing women is better and preferable,based upon what was said by the Commander of the Faithful,'Umar bin Al-Khattaab, his son,'Abdullah and a number of the righteous Salaf, may Allaah be pleased with them. And because there is danger in marrying women from the People of the Book, especially in these times, in which ignorance of Islaam has become the norm, and the number of the righteous men with understanding of the religion has decreased, and predilection towards women and listening to them and displaying obedience to them in all things has increased - except as Allaah wills.

So, it is feared for the husband that his Jewish and Christian wife may draw him towards her religion and morals, as it is feared for their children. And Allaah is the One from whom we ask for help.

wassalaamu 'alaykum 

Shaykh Al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah stated, "There is no blame on the one who openly manifests the math-hab of the Salaf, ascribes himself to it, and takes honour in it. Rather, that must be accepted from him due to the agreement (of the scholars). For verily the math-hab of the Salaf is nothing but Truth..." [Majmoo' Al-Fataawaa, 4/149]

If you see yourself deteriorating....???

“If you see yourself deteriorating: Pick yourself up by repenting & seeking Allaah سبحانه و تعالى’s forgiveness;By asking Him to keep you firm!! 
DON'T become careless, and neither say:

“InshaaAllaah, my Eemaan will become stronger...” 
(without doing anything about it)

Instead from right now —
from the moment you feel that you are ill —
you MUST implement the cure.”

Categories of Martyrdom

We affirm the categories of "Shaheed" (martyrdom) - the one who dies of the plague, the one who dies of a stomach disease, the one who drowns, the one who is crushed beneath a falling wall, and the martyr who is killed for the sake of Allaah. So, whoever is killed in one of these ways, then we think good for them, but we do not explicitly label anyone as Shaheed or the people of the Jannah, because these are from the matters of the unseen. We affirm Jannah and the status of martyrdom only to those who have been mentioned in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah.
Narrated Kharija bin Zaid bin Thaabit: Um Al-`Alaa’ al-Ansaariyah who had given the Pledge of allegiance to Allaah's Apostle صلى الله عليه وسلم said: `Uthman bin Madh`oon came in our share when the Ansaar drew lots to distribute the emigrants (to dwell) among themselves. He became sick and we looked after (nursed) him till he died. Then we shrouded him in his clothes. Allaah's Apostle صلى الله عليه وسلم came to us. I (addressing the dead body) said: 'May Allaah's Mercy be on you, O Aba As-Saa’ib! I testify that Allaah has honored you.' The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: ❝How do you know that?❞ I replied, 'I do not know, by Allaah.' He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: ❝As for him, death has come to him and I wish him all good from Allaah. By Allaah, though I am Allaah's Apostle, I neither know what will happen to me, nor to you.❞ Um Al-`Alaa’ said: "By Allaah, I will never attest the righteousness of anybody after that." [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree]

Thinking Good About Allah

Compilation of Tweets from the lecture, "Having Good Thoughts About Allah" by Dawud Adib (hafidhahullah)

Having Good Thoughts About Allah : by Shaykh ‘Abdur Razzaaq Ibn ‘Abdul Muhsin

April 20, 2014
Compilation of Tweets from the lecture, “Having Good Thoughts About Allah” by Dawud Adib (hafidhahullah) 
Having good thoughts of Allah is an enormous act of worship and has a lofty position for those seeking to get close to Allah. It is one of the obligations of Tawheed; in fact, the Tawheed of the slave will not be correct except by having good assumptions of Allah
Having good assumptions of Allah brings about praiseworthy effects and beneficial fruits in this life and the next
Jaabir (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) said, “Three days before the Messenger (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) died he said, ‘Do not allow anyone of you to die except that he is perfecting his assumptions about Allah.’”
Side Benefit: The ‘Ulamaa` pay close attention to those statements and actions of the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that happen close to his death by days, weeks or months because the revelation is about to cease
Having good thoughts about Allah will produce good actions; and this comes from having knowledge of Allah – one is the result of the other.
Hasan al-Basree (rahimahullah) said, “Verily, when the believer perfects his thoughts about his Rabb, he would have perfected his actions and the faajir is the one who has corrupted his thoughts of his Lord, so his actions will also be corrupted.”
Deeply reflect upon this consistent, strong connection between having good thoughts of Allah and good actions. It is based upon having good knowledge of Allah, specifically about his Lofty Names and Perfect Attributes.
If you know the Name of Allah, Al-Ghaffaar, then you have to perfect your thoughts about Him when you make istighfaar.
If you deeply ponder upon His Beautiful Name, At-Tawwaab and that Allah will accept the repentance of His servants and pardon them for their offences, then it is upon you to perfect your assumptions of Him, that He will accept your repentance regardless of what your offense is
If some of the calamities of this world or pain afflicts you, even some of those diseases that are called incurable or fatal, it is upon you to perfect your assumptions about Allah, that He is Ash-Shaafee and there is no remedy or healing except His healing.
“Who has created me, and it is He Who guides me; And it is He Who feeds me and gives me to drink. And when I am ill, it is He who cures me; And Who will cause me to die, and then will bring me to life (again)” [Soorah ash-Shu’araa` :78-81]
These aayaat indicate that Ibraaheem (‘alayhis salaam) had good thoughts about Allah. He did not attribute becoming sick to Allah as he attributed creation, guidance and sustenance to Him. He did not say “when Allah makes me ill” – he attributed this to himself
In your du’aa to Allah for the good things of this dunyaa and aakhirah, you must perfect your thoughts about Allah that He will answer you
“And your Lord said: ‘Invoke Me, I will respond to your (invocation). Verily! Those who scorn My worship will surely enter Hell in humiliation!” [Soorah Ghaafir: 60]
“And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge) I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me.” [Soorah al-Baqarah: 186]
Having good thoughts about Allah is from the most tremendous blessings and greatest bounties that Allah gives to whomever He wishes
Ibn Abi Dunyaa (rahimahullah) said in “Having Good Thoughts AboutAllah”: ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) said, “I swear by The One Who there is none worthy of worship but Him. A believing slave has not been given anything better than having good assumptions about Allah.”
Then he (Ibn Mas’ood) said, “And I swear by the One Who there is nothing worthy of worship but Him, that there is no slave who perfects his assumption of Allah except that Allah will give him what he assumed and all of that good is in the Hand of Allah.”
It is said that whoever is more knowledgeable of Allah will be the most fearing of Him and whoever is most fearing of Him will be foremost in acts of worship and will be furthest from acts of disobedience
As Allah says, “It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah.” [Soorah Faatir :28]
Indeed, having good thoughts is constructed upon perfecting your knowledge and understanding of Allah. This produces good actions and obedience, and will be your share and portion of the People of Eemaan; this is a description of the People of Eemaan
The munaafiqoon and mushrikoon have no share regarding having good thoughts of Allah. In fact, they have bad thoughts of Allah
It is a sign of nifaaq and kufr to have bad thoughts of Allah because those who have bad thoughts of Him are those who do not believe in Him
“And that He may punish the Munaafiqoon, men and women, and also the Mushrikoon men and women, who think evil thoughts about Allah for them is a disgraceful torment, and the Anger of Allah is upon them, and He has cursed them and prepared Hell for them and worst indeed is that destination.” [Soorah al-Fath :6]
Thus, the scholars have said that there is no punishment mentioned in the Qur’aan more severe than that for having bad thoughts about Allah
They have bad thoughts of Allah due to their disbelief in Allah, their corrupted ‘Aqeedah and the deviation in their hearts
These tremendous benefits were taken from the lecture, “Having Good Thoughts of Allah” by Shaykh ‘Abdur Razzaaq Ibn ‘Abdul Muhsin al-‘Abbaad(hafidhahumullah)
