LEt's get started w/ the gems! I have sooo manyyy to post, but want others to write toOooOO inshallah!!

WEll first, I should've started with "Bismillah wa alhamdulillah"---> imitating the Quran!!!

"Whoever makes istikarah will not lose; whoever consults w/ others will not be regretful."

Abu Hurayrah (r)'s methodology for Success:
1) Duaa. Have a strong connections w/ Allah in both Tawakul and Ibadah as well as TAwheed and reliance.
2) Work Deligently

"What is w/ Allah lasts...."

"Be renounced in what the people love, and the people will love you." Prophet Muhammad (s)

Knowledge and practice= knowledge

Whoever lowers himself for Allah, Allah will raise him.

Check or Wreck...****Always make sure to check your intentions before the deed, while you're engaged in the deed, and afterwards.

OKAY I got more coming up inshallah. START POSTING!!!!

MAy Allah Azza wa Jaal bless our awesome sheikhs w/ more knowledge and reward and May He Protect our new sister in ISlam and the rest of us inshallah.

Gem: "Sall Allahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallum"

Why is this a gem? The way shaykh Suhaib Webb said this salawaat, slowly and deliberately, giving each word due emphasis, was a gem to me. How many of us rush through the salat on the Prophet as if it is a chore we have to get over with before we can finish our sentence. Just by this you can tell that our shaykh has had some good teachers, Masha-Allah.

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:32 PM
Gem: the way you can tell whether a difficulty or a calamity in your life is a blessing in disguise (i.e., means of purification) or a punishment that forebodes greater punishment in the hereafter is by guaging your own reaction to it. If you start challenging Divine wisdom and Divine decree, the misfortune was a punishment. If it brings you closer to Allah (via sabr, etc.), it was a blessing.

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:35 PM
Gem: Allah looks at the quality of our repentance, not at the quantity of our sins.

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:41 PM
Gem: The word "Kull" in "Kulla Bid'atin Dhalaalah" denotes absolute totality.

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:43 PM
Gem: If I say I ate the burger "Kulluhu", it means that I did not leave any portion of it for you. Every last crumb and every last sesame seed is now being digested. You can only see your reflection in the plate!

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:49 PM
Gem: It is of the wisdom of the teaching method of the Prophet (sall Allahu alayhi wa sallum) that he would explain things by giving examples, as he did in the Hadith "Actions are by intentions" and in the Hadith "The Halal is clear and the Haram is clear".

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:51 PM
Gem: The standard approach to the doubtful matters is to leave them, per the Hadith "The Halal is clear and the haram is clear..."

Daeef Jiddan
07-20-2008, 11:55 PM
Gem: Hadith #24 in the Arbaeen is not a license to keep sinning; rather it is a license to always remain hopeful of Allah's mercy

07-20-2008, 11:58 PM
The hadeeth on "The Compass" and its explanation was just sick!

It reminded me of the instance when a man asked Ibn Abbaas (radiallaahu anhu) about the permissibility of music and Ibn Abbaas simply asked him, "On the Day of Judgement, do you think music will be in the ranks of the Truth or the ranks of Falsehood?" The man replied, "Falsehood".

Often times we like to hide behind a fatwaa that may be lenient even though we know in our guts what we should be doing.

07-21-2008, 12:01 AM
Did I mention that this class was sick?? I think it was the best Friday night I've ever been to in an AlMaghrib class; Suhaib Webb's style is ajeeb...gets you in the brains of the fuquhaa while being able to relate to everyone growing up here. I was pretty impressed by his teaching style..wasn't sure what to expect after hearing his general lectures.

07-21-2008, 06:18 AM
Insha'Allah we will be posting the GEMS in the afternoon, there was no internet connection in the hall if I am not mistaken and the students probably arrived anywhere between 12am to 4am to their homes. Overall, the class was excellent it was worth traveling for 6 hours. We enjoyed every second, and this is definitely one of the best classes done by the institution.

07-21-2008, 06:20 AM
a quick one,
Come to class to prove you are a fool (BE HUMBLE!!!)

Gem: One of the signs of sincerity is to be able to collaborate with others on projects.

Daeef Jiddan
07-21-2008, 11:18 AM
Gem: One of the connotations of being a "Rabbaani" scholar is the ability to take people and build up their character bit by bit, in a nurturing way.

Daeef Jiddan
07-21-2008, 11:22 AM
Gem: Those in medical school or in their residency training should chart out a personal program for themselves that keeps them connected to the Deen during this time.

Daeef Jiddan
07-21-2008, 11:30 AM
Gem: Fatwas about life and death situations and marital issues should not be sought from the internet, but should be presented one-on-one to an Aalim who can ask the questioner for any relevant details about their particular situation before producing a fatwa.

Daeef Jiddan
07-21-2008, 11:39 AM
Gem: If the permissibility of something is a matter of legitimate difference of opinion amongst the scholars AND your conscience nags at you when you do that act, then the hadith of leaving off doubtful matters applies to you.

In contrast, if another person does the same act in good faith, without any feeling of unease in their conscience, this hadith does not apply to them. They will not be punished for following the lenient fatwa, even if in the eyes of Allah the fatwa was indeed mistaken.

07-21-2008, 11:51 AM
Check yourself before you wreck yourself - always check those intentions!

07-21-2008, 03:27 PM
Sh. Suhaib Webb said: "All we do is debate about Moon, Meat, Music, Mortgages....that's our community."

Then the following day, Sh. Yasir was discussing the "Golden Compass" hadeeth and how one can use a guilty conscience to give an indication in gray areas.
So first he discussed Music...we were smiling.
Then he discussed Meat...we were giggling.
Then he discussed Mortgages...and then we went "OOOHHHH man"; there was a little uproar/laughter.
He had listed 3 of 4 controversial issues that Sh. Suhaib mentioned :).
Sh. Yasir didn't know that though, so he said, "Man, what's with you guys? Sometimes you are so hard to teach, ahlu-Chicago."

07-21-2008, 03:35 PM

There were bunch of kids playing around and with a cow. A Sheikh was walking by and saw Yahya (Imam Al-Nawawi) sitting on the side, and asked him.. why aren't you playing with them, and that's when he replied saying " I WAS NOT CREATED TO PLAY...."
p-s: Historians and Scholars agree that he was born during the Golden Era in Al-Sham

07-21-2008, 08:12 PM
When Imam Al-Nawawi was 19 when he moved to Damascus to seek knowledge. And he was basically doing "72 CREDIT HOURS A WEEK!" 12 Halaqas/week!! THAT IS JUST THE HALAQAS... He did not even start reviewing!

07-21-2008, 08:15 PM
Imam Al-Nawawi's output in a day is like our output in a week, his output in a week is like our output in a month, his output in a month is like our output in a year, his output in a year is like our output in a LIFETIME!

07-21-2008, 08:19 PM
When he died people start writing poetry about him to an extent that there was this one man that wrote 600 lines of poetry!

07-21-2008, 08:25 PM
If you are jealous of someone.... 1st remedy is to ask Allah to increase their GOODNESS, 2nd remedy is to go back to the Quran, 3rd remedy is to the person a gift.
There is no way this wouldn't work if you went through jealousy!

07-21-2008, 08:26 PM
Things you can do in North America as a starter:
1) memorize 5verses of Quran/day
2) memorize 1 hadith/day

Scholars agrred that a week hadith shouldnt be applied or allowed towards law.

BUT! they use it for motivation AND scare people to death

07-21-2008, 08:38 PM
The 40 hadith nawawi are the foundations of Islam..

07-21-2008, 08:38 PM
Al-Nawawi said: "Whomever seeks the hereafter then let them memorize those ahadith"
"So memorize those 40 gems" Sheikh Suhayb

07-21-2008, 08:42 PM
Imam Al-Nawawi prayed Istekhara before writing this book.... Can you believe it.

07-21-2008, 08:42 PM
Hadith #1:
Islam is based on Ikhlas (Sincerity) <-- its all about that man

07-21-2008, 08:44 PM
Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal and Al Shafee said that this hadith ( first one) covers 1/3 of knowledge

07-21-2008, 08:46 PM
it is kufr to say Allah-hu a'raf, but say Allah-hu a'lam

EXPLANATION// difference between a'raf and a'lam in Arabic. And masha'Allah he gave me a great answer.
The word a'raf starts with jahel (ignorance?). So for someone to be a'raf in something means that he did not know what that thing was from before. Subhana Allah.

07-21-2008, 08:47 PM
A fitnah you go through can make you a better person.... it polishes you sometimes

07-21-2008, 08:48 PM
Imam Suhayb "Dont study this class and think.... (what are they thinking of me back home)"
Check your intentions, you are doing this for yourself

07-21-2008, 08:50 PM
The action of something that is permissible can be rewardable if you make a good intention behind it

07-21-2008, 08:52 PM
In the Quran it tells you not to say "Aufff" to your parents. But it doesnt say not to beat them up, Does that mean we can .....

07-21-2008, 10:12 PM
Does every action require intention....?
1) If a pure Ibadah then yes (Opinion of Imam Malik, Shafee, and Hanbal)
2) if something like walking down the street, then no.

07-21-2008, 10:13 PM
Do you want to be successful?? Have tawakkul in Allah..you cannot be successful unless you have tawakkul in Allah..

A proof of Imam anNawawi's sincerity towards Allah subhanaHu wata'ala in all that he did is evident because you'd be hard pressed to find a Muslim household that did not have one of his books.

That's because "What's with Allah lasts!"

مَا عِندَكُمْ يَنفَدُ وَمَا عِندَ اللّهِ بَاقٍ

Whatever is with you, will be exhausted, and whatever with Allah (of good deeds) will remain.

07-22-2008, 12:04 AM
Renounce what is in the hands of people (in terms of worldy things) and they will love you.

What caused Imam anNawawi to move forward (in the deen) was his renounciation of this dunya.

07-22-2008, 12:06 AM
Imam anNawawi's worship pushed him away from the love of this dunya and into the love of the Hereafter.

Knowledge is a tree and the actions are the fruits/dates of that tree.

The scholars did not give any consideration to one who would just talk, unless it was coupled by actions.

07-22-2008, 12:23 AM

Worship of Allah is not done through prayer and fasting but through practice and understanding.

07-22-2008, 12:27 AM

There are two main categories for intention:
For Allah alonehttp://forums.almaghrib.org/images/icons/icon7.gif or for somone else (riyaa'http://forums.almaghrib.org/images/icons/icon8.gif)...for all pure acts of Ibaadah we need to make sure our intention is solely for Allah or else our act of worship will be void! If we are trying to gain someone's approvel by "appearing righeous" as in the story Imam Suhaib told us, just remember that Allah's approval is attainable while you can never please people, and who's approval would we rather have? Our CREATOR, the One who has absolute power over every single thing, or people, His creation?? I don't think that's a very hard decision to make! or at least lets hope not!

Mu'aath Ibn Jabal was one of the few who actually memorized the whole Qur'aan during the life of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), he was also the most knowledgable in haraamhttp://forums.almaghrib.org/images/icons/icon13.gif and halaalhttp://forums.almaghrib.org/images/icons/icon14.gif from the Sahabah!!

No sincere dua'a goes un answered

When you make your dua'a sincerely (1 of 3) should happen:
1- Your Dua'a (supplication) will come true as you wished
2- It would give you some other blessing
3- Might prevent an evil

No sincere dua'a goes un answered

Basic nature of man loves good and being good make you feel good.
So it is cool to feel good when you do good "Mai!"

Don't stop asking from Allah, and don't believe you're asking for too much:
Only someone with a limited bank account looks to how much he should give.

If a problem brings you closer to Allah, then it is not a problem. It's a blessing!

Of the definitions of Taqwa is to put a protective barrier between you and the punishment of Allah 'azzawajal.

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi mentioned that the word تقوى came from the root word و ق ى - which essentially means "to put a barrier/protect."

As a personal observation - it's interesting to note the instances in the Qur'an where Allah subhanaHu wata'ala uses the same root word - for instance:

الَّذِينَ يَحْمِلُونَ الْعَرْشَ وَمَنْ حَوْلَهُ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَيُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا رَبَّنَا وَسِعْتَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ رَّحْمَةً وَعِلْماً فَاغْفِرْ لِلَّذِينَ تَابُوا وَاتَّبَعُوا سَبِيلَكَ وَقِهِمْ عَذَابَ الْجَحِيمِ

Those (angels) who bear the Throne (of Allah) and those around it glorify the praises of their Lord, and believe in Him, and ask forgiveness for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah) (saying): "Our Lord! You comprehend all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who repent and follow Your Way, and save them from the torment of the blazing Fire!

(Surat Ghafir, ayah 7)

In this verse the word وَقِهِمْ (save them) - comes from the same root as taqwa - و ق ى - it's so powerful because the angels are not asking Allah subhanaHu wata'ala to save just anyone - rather, they are asking Allah subhanaHu wata'ala to specifically save the people of Taqwa.

What's even more amazing is that that simple word (save them) is used to refer to the description that the angels have given of these people in the same verse:

1. Those who believe in the Oneness of Allah
2. Those who repent to Allah
3. Those who follow Allah's Way (the action part of belief)

Taking from the verse - all three are essential and integral qualities of the muttaqi.

Therefore, it is through the Taqwa of Allah that we earn our salvation and protection in this world and in the Hereafter.

Glad tiding: if you have taqwa, the angels make du'a on your behalf, asking Allah subhanaHu wata'ala to save you. (May Allah subhanaHu wata'ala make us of the people of taqwa - Ameen! )

Also, as an added note (and incentive to repent : ) - the angels ask forgiveness to those who ask Allah for forgiveness.

And all praise is due to Allah subhanaHu wata'ala!

Jazaakillaah khair for sharing what you have learned BlessedMuslimah!

Can you add definitions like this one (with the hadeeth #) to the definitions thread that Br. AbdulHasib started? It will be helpful to all to have definitions all in one place.

Gem: "Sall Allahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallum"

Why is this a gem? The way shaykh Suhaib Webb said this salawaat, slowly and deliberately, giving each word due emphasis, was a gem to me. How many of us rush through the salat on the Prophet as if it is a chore we have to get over with before we can finish our sentence. Just by this you can tell that our shaykh has had some good teachers, Masha-Allah.

subhanAllaah what an amazing gem. JazakAllaah Khair for posting this..
