Question: What are the books that a student of knowledge begins with, then if he wishes progresses onto?

Answer:  The books that a student at the beginning stages of seeking knowledge starts with – if he is well versed in reading and writing (Arabic) – then he should study

  • ‘Fathul-Majeed Sharh Kitaabut-Tawheed’ since it is a great book and also study
  • ‘Aqeedahtul Waasitiyyah’ by Shaykh ul-Islaam ibn Taymiyyah, and
  • ‘al-Qawlul Mufeed’ by our brother Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahaab al-Wasaabi and likewise
  • ‘Bulugh al-Maraam’ and
  • ‘Riyaadhus Saliheen’

Furthermore, once you have studied these books and you wish and desire (to move to) other books, and indeed if you are able you should begin with the memorisation of the Qur’aan then that is better and more virtuous. Subsequently, the issue of the Arabic language for our non-Arab brothers is very important, since if a non-Arab was not well versed in the Arabic language, it is possible that a person in an Islamic garb could come to you and explain the Qur’aan upon other than its correct explanation, like that which occurred with the Mu’tazilah.

Ash shaykh Al Allaamah Muqbil ibn Hadee al Wadi’ee Rahimahullaah said:

“Our Daw’ah and our ’Aqeedah is more beloved to us than our own selves, our wealth and our offspring. So we are not prepared to part with it for gold nor silver. We say this so that no one may have hope in buying out our Daw’ah, nor should he think that it is possible for him to purchase it from us for deenaar or dirham.”

Umm Abdullah Al Wade’iyyah Speaks of Her Father’s Rearing of His Daughters
The following two questions were posed to me (Umm Abdullah):

1- (What was) the extent of his (Shiekh Muqbil bin Hadee Al Wad’ee) focus on us while  we were young?

2- (What was) his manner of teaching his family?

As for the first question:

Our father did not neglect us, even though he was extremely busy.  An example of this is his major concern for us with regards to learning the Quran.  He would recite the Quran to us in order for us to memorize it and (he) would record (his) recitation on a (audio) tape in order (for us) to perfect the recitation.  One time while my sister was memorizing, she went to him in order for him to record his recitation, but he was in the library.  She called him and he left his research, came and recorded the recitation, and then returned to his library.

(translator’s note: In another place it was mentioned that the Shiekh stood under a tree and recorded the recitation for his daughter and then returned to his research)

When we began to understand the recitation he purchased a Quranic (audio) album by Shiekh (Mahmoud Khaleel) Al Housrey.  He purchased one for each of us without a radio in order to protect us from listening to music.  Once we became more mature, he purchased a recorder with a radio, but strongly warned us against music.  By the praise of Allah we accepted that. We have never heard music, and we strongly detest it. Verily the Messenger -sallahu alahi wa salem- spoke the truth when he said:

‘Every newborn is born upon the fitrah, then his/her parents make him/her a jew, a christian or a pagan’

(Sahih Al Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Huraira)

He (Shiekh Muqbil) listened to what we memorized and we read to him much good.  He would order us to memorize from one specific print of The Quran.  This is because memorizing from one specific print assists (the individual) in memorizing with accuracy.  If he saw us carrying a different print he would become upset and admonish us.  May Allah have abundant mercy on him.

Amongst the students of knowledge, there were some students from Egypt and Sudan that had their wives accompanying them (in Yemen).  Some of these women would teach us and our father would pay them a salary.  This was done due to his specific focus and concern of our rearing and his general focus of the rearing of the other girls.  This (manner of study) continued till (we reached) the fourth grade according to school standards.  When he brought the books (curriculum/syllabus) that we were going to study with the female teachers, he would order us to erase all pictures of living things.

We did so with hate for pictures.

After that, we were taught Islamic education.  Knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah.  We would memorize with our teachers and also memorize ahadeeth, all praise belonging to Allah.

Our father would entertain and joke with us with that which Allah made permissible,  contrary to what many people do today, except for those whom Allah has mercy upon.  They (aforementioned people) entertain their children with television, music and crazy toys, and other than that from wrong and evil. (This is done) while our Prophet Muhammed -sallahu alahi wa salam- said, as it comes in Sahih Al Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Ibn Umar, the Messenger said:

‘All of you are shepherds, and all will be held responsible over his flock’

He (The Messenger) also said:

‘There is no servant that Allah gives a responsibility and he is not sincere in it’s regard, except that he will not smell the fragrance of paradise’

(Sahih Al Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Ma’kal bin Yasar)

Our father would forbid us from constantly leaving the home.  He would order us to never leave except with his permission.

This was a summary of his care for us while we were children.

As for the second question:

Firstly, he was very concerned with our learning the religion of Allah and with our increase in Islamic knowledge.  Due to this, he went through great means to provide everything that would assist the seeking of knowledge and free our time for it.  May Allah give him a generous reward and enter him into His highest part of paradise.

He would designate a time to teach us, and on the following day he would question us concerning the previous lesson.  If the previous lesson was difficult, he would lighten (the questioning) contrary to if it was easy.

From the private lessons that he taught in our home: ‘Qatru Nada’ (Arabic grammar), this  was taught (completed) twice, ‘Sharh ibn Aqeel’ (Arabic grammar), also taught twice, and Tadreeb ar Rawee (Sciences of Hadeeth).  We were studying: ‘Musil at Tallab ila Qawed al ‘Irab’ authored by Shiekh Khaleed al Azharee, but we were prevented from completing it due to his final illness.  May Allah cover him with His mercy.

He also promised us a lesson in Balagha (Eloquence of Arabic), but his final illness also prevented the fullfilling of this.  Allah is The Helper.

He would teach us in a cheerful manner, as was his norm during his lessons.  This (characteristic) would allow the student(s) to inquire about any misunderstanding in the class.  Our sittings with him were filled with good, review of knowledge and guidance, even during meal times and over the phone.  Even during his illness while we were concerned for him, he continued to question us and bring joy to us.  All praise is for Allah.

Note: She mentions a footnote during this paragraph, it reads:

That time while he was in Saudi Arabia before traveling to Germany, he telephoned me and said:

Assalam u alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

(She said) I responded without mentioning: wa barakatuhu.

He then said to me: Why didn’t you respond with what is better?!

He was referring to the statement of Allah in the Quran:

‘And if you are greeted with a greeting, then return a greeting which is better or the same’.

He was very concerned with our statements and if we made a mistake, he would admonish us with gentleness and said: Don’t be like the people of Sa’da (city in north Yemen). One of them learns Arabic for years until he reaches the level of ‘Al Mugnee Al Labeeb’, but he still speaks on the level of a layman.

(She continued to say) I said to him one time on the phone: Now, we no longer find someone to correct us in our mistakes as you used to do.  He responded: Supplicate to Allah for me.  (She said) I pray that Allah raises him in the high parts of paradise and I pray He (Allah) makes my sister and I from those whom He (Allah) said (in the Quran) concerning them:

‘And those who believe and their children follow them in belief, We will join them with their children (in paradise), and We will not waste their actions’
(end of footnote)

Occasionally, he would be firm in his questioning in order to test our understanding.  He would also do this with his male students, and at times he would give us difficult questions.  I (Umm Abdullah) said to him one time: These questions are not on my level.  He responded: I know, but I intended a benefit from them, but I placed them in the form of questions.

I (Umm Abdullah) say: What he used to do has an origin in the legislation.  It has been recorded in Sahih al Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Mu’adh bin Jabal, he said: I accompanied the Messenger –sallahu alahi wa salam- on a riding beast when he said:

‘Oh Mu’adh! I said: I answer your call and I’m continuously at your service.  He (the Prophet) repeated this 3 times and then said: Do you know what is the right of Allah upon His servants?  I said: No.  He said: The right of Allah upon His servant is that they worship Him and don’t associate partners with Him.  Then some time passed and he said: Oh Mu’ath! Do you know what is the right of the servants with Allah, if they do that (worship Him without associating partners to Him)?  Their right is that He will not punish them’.

Presenting a benefit in the form of a question strengthens comprehension of the information, and is understood better than presenting it in any other manner. This is because the student will gather and focus his attention to what is being presented to him.

He would occasionally direct questions to the females that were listening to the lessons, and then he would check which answers were correct or false.  From those questions that he asked (them): What is (the ‘Iraab) analysis for the following sentence:

The two Abdullah’s came riding (camel, horse, etc).

And (the likes of the question) what is the meaning of their (teachers of the Arabic language) statement explaining ‘Itha’ (if): it hides (the doer of the action) because it is (used as) a condition.  It is (also) mansoob (carries a fatha) due to the response of the condition.

(translator’s note: I apologize for my inability to translate the last example accurately.  It deals with Arabic grammar that is very difficult to explain in English.  Allah knows best)

We would ask him concerning doubtful matters or confusion related to our lessons or research, and if we did not fully comprehend his explanation of the matter, he would request us to continue researching, or he would accompany us to the library and assist in researching the matter.  This is something that indeed brings sadness to us, because who after my father would lend such assistance!

(A poet said):
“Who can compare to your kind soft way?!  You walk gently and without haste, but arrive/come first. “

Verily from Allah we come (are created), and to Him we will return.  I (Umm Abdullah) ask Allah to give us a firm statement (La illaha ill Allah) in this life and the hereafter.

He would admonish and direct us with gentleness and ease, and by the mercy of Allah, we had no choice but to obey him. Verily (his orders) were for our own good and well being, and all of them (his guidance and admonition) were precious pearls attached to and supported by the Quran and Sunnah.

From his astonishing mannerism was that he was not strict /harsh against our opinions and deductions that were possibly correct.  If we held an understanding different from his in a matter, he would not be harsh toward us.  This was his normal character with his students, as was known. He would not act cruel or stern toward them (his students) if their opinions or understanding could possibly be correct.  This (character) is something; oh respected reader, difficult to find (in a teacher).

•     He warned us of the society, because it is one that is deviant and astray.  It (is a society) that races toward that which is incorrect and does not benefit, except for those whom Allah shows mercy.
•     He warned us of pride, and he disliked for a female to be prideful and arrogant toward her husband. He would say: There is no good in her (this type of female).
•     He encouraged us with abstinence in this worldly, vanishing life.
•     He instructed us to intend through our eating and drinking, to strengthen ourselves for obedience to Allah, in order to receive the reward of Allah.

He would say: Do not busy yourselves with preparing food, what is easily available, we will eat.

•     He (constantly) encouraged us. He was not from those fathers who discourage their daughters and families. He made our level (of work) simple in order that we continued to progress and prepare ourselves with learning and obtaining beneficial knowledge.

From his statements to me was: b][“I hope that you become a faqeeha” (female grounded in religious legislation).

Oh by the One who we hope from no other than Him, I ask you Oh Allah to make his wish/hope a reality.

As for discouraging (your daughters or family), this only brings about laziness and hopelessness, and may lead to a regretful result.

At other times, if he noticed from us a deficiency in answering questions, he would admonish us.  This was from his ways of wisdom.  He would do this with the purpose of protecting us from conceit and pride, these two matters are diseases and they are fatal.  May Allah protect and save us from them.

Several years ago (while the Shiekh was still alive), I (verbally) wished (in his presence) to see a palm pith.  (Later) He saw some people digging up a palm tree, when they pulled out the palm pith from the heart of the tree; he brought me one to the house and said: Here is a palm pith.

(translator’s note: I believe she intendeds here to illustrate her fathers gentleness and willingness to take some time out of his extremely busy schedule to fulfill his daughters wishes)

In conclusion to this answer, (I would like to mention) I saw a dream of my father after his death.  He and Shiekh Ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah were present in a place that I am not certain of.  I believe it may have been the lower library (in Dammaj).  Shiekh Ul Islam was standing with his beautiful white beard.  It almost fully covered his chest.  My father was also very handsome and strong.  I ask Allah to place them in His highest paradise.

(end of translated text)

This is what we had to offer of the translation of her work.  We encourage everyone to read the full version of her father’s biography.  Indeed she has placed in her book jewels and pearls that were only seen and witnessed by her.  May Allah increase her in knowledge and understanding.
May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our last messenger Muhammed, and upon his family members and companions.

Al Imaam Muqbil Ibn Hadee al Wadi’ee Rahimahullaah stated;

“And you submit to them (i.e. the scholars), for they are the people of that art, and they are more knowledgeable of their knowledge. And I do not call you to taqleed, since this is not from the aspect of taqleed, but it is from the angle of accepting the information of a trustworthy person, and Allaah, the Sublime and Exalted says, “O you who believe if a faasiq comes to you with news, then verify it”, and the understanding of the verse is that when an upright (trustworthy) person comes, then we take his information, and Allah knows best.

Shaykh Muqbil Rahimahullaah mentions concerning shaykh Rabee’ :

… from amongst the individuals who are very knowledgeable about parties and groups during present times is the brother Rabee’ bin Hadee al Madhkalee (may Allah preserve him).The person who Rabee’ informs is a hizbee, his affair will eventually become apparent and exposed after some time, and you will remember (that Shaikh Rabee’  warned of him). A person’s affair initially is unknown and that individual doesn’t want to expose himself, but if he becomes more popular and gains a following and he no longer is worried about what is said concerning him, he exposes what he holds (his true beliefs and methodology).

Selections from Part One
By Shaykh Muqbil ibn Haadee al-Waadi’ee
Translated by Abu Yusuf, Sagheer Ibn ‘Abdir-Rasheed Al-Kashmeeree

Taken from Fawaaid Min Duroos Abee ‘Abdir-Rahmaan Muqbil Bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee (Benefits From the Lessons of Abee Abdir-Rahmaan Muqbil Bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee) of Abu ‘Abdir-Rahmaan ‘Awd Bin Naasir Ad-Dagbasee Al-Wadaree Said Abu ‘Abdir-Rahmaan ‘Awd Bin Naasir Ad-Dagbasee Al-Wadaree:

1. Our Sheikh – may Allah The Most High have mercy on him – said: ‘Two honourable scholars if you read that which is from them, you would think that the truth is theirs due to the strength of their expression, and they are Ibn-ul-Qayyim and Ash-Shawkaanee.’ (page 31)

2. Our Sheikh – may Allah The Most High have mercy on him – said: ‘From the recommended Sunnan when a new-born comes is the ‘Aqeeqah, then choosing the name (and) choosing a wet-nurse’ Then he said: ‘And beware of suckling from the stupid woman and the mad woman, for indeed the milk has an effect. (page 32)

3. He – may Allah have mercy on him – said about Jamaat-ut-Tableegh: ‘Indeed, it itself is in need of tableegh (preaching)’ (page 33)

4. He – may Allah have mercy on him – said: ‘Strive hard my sons before you are cut off or there comes between you and the knowledge something (as an obstacle), for indeed the barriers and the obstacles are many’ (page 33)

5. Our Sheikh – may Allah The Most High have mercy on him – said: ‘Shareek Bin ‘Abdillah, An-Nakh’ee and Al-A’mash said about the Raafidah: ‘We do not count them except as being the liars’. And we say today about them: They are from the greatest liars. In fact, they are from the devils. And the author of (the book) ‘Uyoon-ul-Mu’jizaat is an accursed Raafidee. And from them are those who affirm divinity for ‘Alee Bin Abee Taalib, may Allah be pleased with him’ (page 33)

6. He – may Allah have mercy on him – said: ‘From the causes which aid the seeking of knowledge are:

  • Taqwa: ‘O’ you who believe, if you have taqwa of Allah, He will makefor you a distinguishing proof’ i.e. in what you distinguish between truthand falsehood, innovation and Sunnah and beneficial knowledge and otherthan it. He The Most High says: ‘And have taqwa of Allah and Allah will teach you’.
  • Reliance (tawakkul) upon Allah concerning provision until it does not divert you away from seeking knowledge.
  • (Having) a high determination.
  • Sitting with those who are eager and beneficial.
  • Being far away from problems.
  • Reading about the lives of the Salaf.
  • Preserving the health (which) aids you in memorising the Qur’an. As for illness, then it may make you forget some of the things which were learnt. (page 34)

Pearls of Wisdom by Imaam Muqbil ibn Hadee al wadi’ee

Taken from Nubdhah Mukhtasarah min Nasaaâ’ih Waalidee al-Allaamah Muqbil binHaadee al-Waadiâ’ee

Authored By Shaykhah Umm Abdillaah al-Waadiâ’iyyah (daughter of Shaykh Muqbil)

Imaam Muqbil on free mixing between men and women

He faced a nation of ignorant folk and people of desires whilst being alone and by himself. He would enjoin the good upon them and forbid them from the evil. In the beginning of his call, he would go out to them and scream in his loudest voice, “Free mixing between men and women is evil.”
Imaam Muqbil on servicing Islaam
From the statements of our Father and Shaykh, “Do you desire to present something for the betterment of Islaam and no one speaks ill of you? You desire to present something for the betterment of Islaam and you find them rubbing your side saying, Hasnât Allaah already made many men like you”

Imaam Muqbil on the love of knowledge and the scholars

He had an immense and expansive love for the scholars and beneficial knowledge that flowed through his flesh, blood, and nerves since his
childhood. He, himself, has informed us of that. 

One day during a lesson that he was conducting, he expressed his love for knowledge on a Monday the last day of the month of Safar in the
year 1420H, “What is better than knowledge? It is better than gold and money. It is better than beautiful, gorgeous women. It is better than royalty”. And he would say, “Insha Allaah, we will seek knowledge until we die”

Imaam Muqbil’s Great Concern for the Aqeedah

He was upon what our Salaf as-Saalih were upon from amongst the companions, the Taabieen, the Taabi Taabieen, and those that came after them who followed them in righteousness regarding belief in Allaah, His Names and Attributes, believing in them just as they have come without resembling Allaah to the creation (Tamtheel or Tashbeeh), asking how the nature of His Names and Attributes are (Takyeef), or negation of His Names and Attributes (Tateel). He was also upon what the Salaf as-Saalih were upon concerning belief in the unseen matters, the Qadar (Divine Decree), its good and bad, and other than that. He evenfeel Qadar (The Authentic Collection Concerning the Divine authored books of Aqeedah such as the book al-Jaami as-Saheeh Decree), Ash-Shafaa’ah (The Intercession), As-Saheeh al-Musnad min Dalaailin Nabuwwah (The Authentic Musnad regarding the Signs of Prophecy), Irshaad Dhawil Fitan li Ib’aad Ghulaatir Rawaafid min Yaman  (Guidance for the Clever and Bright in Distancing Oneself from the Extreme Raafidah of Yemen), and Riyaadul Jennah fir Radd  alaa A’daa’is Sunnah (Gardens of Paradise as a Refutation Against the Enemies of the Sunnah). He also taught at this very centre al-Jaami as-Saheeh feel Qadar (The Authentic Collection Concerning the Divine Decree), Ash-Shafaa’a (The Intercession), and As-Saheeh al-Musnad min Dalaa’ilin Nabuwwah (The Authentic Musnad regarding the Signs of Prophecy) and all praise belongs to Allaah. 

He encouraged me to place strong importance on studying books of the Aqeedah such as ˜Aqeedatus Salaf of Saaboonee, Aqeedat ul Waasitiyyah of Ibn Taymiyyah, as-Sunnah of Abdullaah bin Ahmad, of Ibn AbeeAasim, of Muhammad bin Nasar al-Marwazee, and the likes. He, conducted lessons on the book at-Tawheed of Ibn Khuzaimah and as-Sunnah of Abdullaah bin Ahmad.

Due to the strength of his Aqeedah, the enemies of Allaah and the Daw’ah as-Salafiyyah would fight him and he would refute their falsehood and suppress them, hindering them with proofs from the book of Allaah the Sunnah of His Messenger, (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). Because of this, they would lose their bravery and become cowardly and forsaken. Some of them are renowned for that.

So when evidence was requested of some of them concerning an issue, he (i.e. Imaam Muqbil) would respond, “I swear by Allaah, Ahlus Sunnah
does not weaken and debilitate anyone except by the proofs. As for them, they are upon the religion of their fathers and grandfathers, blindly following them. They have been left to confusion and are forsaken. This is the state of one who embraces blind following.”

Imaam Muqbil’s Concern for strongly adhering to the Sunnah

From his statements, “We will never abandon the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah, (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) even if we are bitten fiercely and ferociously by teeth.”

Imaam Muqbil on not opposing the Daw’ah by having Disdain for it

It was difficult upon him and it ailed him when the Dawâah was opposed out of disdain, and he would warn from that saying, “It is obligatory that we fear Allaah regarding the Dawâah and that we do not oppose it having disdain for it.”

Imaam Muqbil’s Joy and Glee for Ahlus Sunnah Spreading the Truth in

Our Time and the Peoples Acceptance of the Truth

He was joyful at many of the people in our time accepting the truth and Ahlus Sunnah upholding and carrying out what is obligatory upon them
and he would say, “Ahlus Sunnah, and all praise belongs to Allaah, has closed the gap and the enemies of Islaam are intimidated by them.
America is prepared to assist the Soofee, the Shee’ee, and the disbeliever, but as for Ahlus Sunnah, no.”

Imaam Muqbil’s Stance in being upon the Understanding of the Salaf as-Saalih

He would say, “We worship Allaah upon the understanding of the Salaf as-Saalih that is in accordance with the proofs, and we say, “They have preceded us in every good. They have been praised in the likes of His statement, The Exalted,


“And the foremost to embrace Islaam of the Muhajirun and the Ansaar and those that followed them exactly in faith. [Soorah Tawbah (9): 100]

And the statement of the Prophet, (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) “The best of you are my generation, then those that came after them, then those that came after them.” (End of quote)

Imaam Muqbil on Abstaining from that which does not benefit in this Life

He was a Zaahid (ascetic) concerning the life of this world and its wretched vanities that will inevitably perish. He did not care whether it came his way or departed. He lived in a humble home that was partially constructed of clay. Some of the righteous folk requested to knock his home down and rebuild a more splendid dwelling but he refused. 


Truly, he was upon a remarkable Zuhd (asceticism) and he was not known to bend. Due to this, he would warn from the life of this world and from his statements, “The life of this world delays a person hindering him. It may even cause him to forget, toying with him, so that he gives it precedence over the hereafter. It blinds and causes one to become deaf.”

Imaam Muqbil on Humbleness and Humility

He did not puff himself up over anyone, nor was he neither conceited and dazzled by himself, nor was he haughty and arrogant, and anyone who
interacted with him knows this of him. He would say, “I have fallen short” And he would say, “I am not pleased with myself.”

Imaam Muqbil’s View of the Daw’ah Spreading in Yemen

He would say concerning the Daw’ah when it had become prevalent and spread, “This is something that Allaah has willed. It is not due to
our strength, nor due to our eloquent speech, nor due to our abundance of knowledge, nor due to our abundance of wealth.”

Imaam Muqbil’s View of His Students

He stated more than once to his students, “I now consider you to be amongst my colleagues.” Imaam Muqbil on Arrogance and Haughtiness He would say, “Arrogance is of the greatest deterrents from good and excellence. He, The Exalted, has stated, 

“I shall turn away from My Ayat those who behave arrogantly on the earth without due right. [Soorah A’araaf (7): 146]

The arrogant and haughty person is hated amongst the people even if he were to give them baskets of gold.”

Imaam Muqbil’s Dislike of Fame
The people travelling and flocking to this blessed centre indicates the fame of this Daw’ah and its level being raised, and all praise belongs to Allaah. All of this was in spite of the fact that our Father and Shaykh did not love fame. Due to this he would say, “I have been tested with fame.”

An Example of Imaam Muqbil’s Humbleness
He would say, “We are ignorant of some things and knowledgeable of others. We are correct sometimes and we err at other times.”

Imaam Muqbil on not being Affected by the Those who Rebuke You
It was said to him one day whilst I was listening, “Some of the people speak ill of you.” So he said, “It does not harm me. My sins are more (of a burden).”  He stated this while there was a smile upon his face.

Imaam Muqbil on the Effects of Sins
Once, his left hand began to shake, so he said to me, “This is due to my sins” and he recited His statement, The Exalted: 

“And whatever of misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned. And He pardons much.” [Soorah Shooraa (42): 30]

Imaam Muqbil on Fearing Hypocrisy

He would say, “Whoever does not fear hypocrisy for himself is deluded and blind.”

Imaam Muqbil on the Principle: We Cooperate in That Which We Agree Upon and We Excuse Each Other in That Which We Disagree Upon
He would say about the principle “We cooperate in that which we agree upon and we excuse each other in that which we disagree upon.”, “In
it is a denial of the proofs concerning enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, and the one who says it is a Munaafiq (hypocrite) that has fallen into the hypocrisy of action.”

Imaam Muqbil on Tawakkul
He possessed strong reliance (upon Allaah). Due to this he would return matters to Allaah and say, “Ease occurs by the Hand of Allaah” If he spent of his wealth, you would find him saying, “Allaah will compensate me”

An Example of Imaam Muqbil’s Kindness and Generosity
It was said to him once whilst I was listening, “It is said that youpossess a large sum of money.” So he said, “If I do possess that then I have dispersed it like this” and he pointed to his right, left, front, and rear. He would give precedence to the students of knowledge, specifically the advanced students, since they were more deserving than others in his view.

An Example of Imaam Muqbil’s Maturity
How many issues was he asked about and he said about them, “Allaah knows best”. How many people was he asked about and he would say, “I am unable to make a statement about him” so he would remain silent about him for years until his state became clear. So is there any ill speech about him (i.e. Imaam Muqbil) after this?

Imaam Muqbil on Having Severe Hatred for Hizbiyyah, Innovations, and Its People
He severely hated Hizbiyyah, innovations, and its people for the sake of Allaah, The Mighty, The Majestic. We deem him to have great stature,
but Allaah is His Reckoner. He would explain the reality of the Hizbee, saying, “The Hizbee is one who calls to his ideology. Even if he calls to the Book and the Sunnah, he is only concealing (his ideology). Hizbiyyah does not have a peak. It is only an ideology.”


Imaam Muqbil on Having Severe Hatred for Safety and Security Being
Vanquished and Frightening the Muslims

He had hatred for safety and security being vanquished, the effects of disturbances, and frightening the Muslims. During one of his delightful and interesting lessons that he conducted, we came across the Hadeeth of Ibn Umar that is agreed upon (by Bukhaaree and Muslim): “I have been ordered to fight the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped in truth except Allaah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, to establish the prayer, and pay the Zakaat. If they do that then their blood and wealth is safe from me except for the rights of Islaam and their reckoning will be with Allaah.”

He extracted from this and said, “Within this Hadeeth is a refutation of some modern day groups.

From them is Jamaa’ah at-Takfeer who deem the blood of the Muslims to be Halaal, from them is Jamaa’ah al-Jihad who deem the blood of the Muslims to be Halaal, who consider the ruler to be a disbeliever and the general populous to be Muslims, so the infrastructure of the state should be run by the heedless Muslim, and from them are the revolutionaries who teach the people revolution and overthrowing the government.

And in the Saheehayn (i.e. Bukhaaree and Muslim) from the Hadeeth of Abdullaah bin Mas’ud, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “Allaah has not permitted the blood of the Muslim except in three (cases), the fornicator that was previously
married, a life for a life, and the person who abandons the religion separating from the Jamaa’ah.” After this Hadeeth, Muslim conveys a Hadeeth on Aa’ishah since he relayed its chain of transmission to Aa’ishah and then stated a similar narration.” (End of quote)

An Example of Imaam Muqbil’s Mercy and Compassion for His Students

He said to his students, “Oh my children, I swear by Allaah if knowledge could be poured into a glass, I would pour it for you, but it is not obtained except by hard work, exhaustion, and scraping of the knees. And Yahyaa bin Abee Katheer said to his son Abdullaah, “Knowledge is not obtained by relaxation of the body.” Related by Muslim in his Saheeh in the Book of Prayer.”

Imaam Muqbil Had Great Concern for the Non-Arab Brothers

He would have great concern for the non-Arab brothers, specifically. Sometimes, he would teach them some Arabic words saying, “Sitting with them will not harm you i.e. teaching them.”

Imaam Muqbil on Family Life

He would teach us to make our intentions, in eating and drinking, increasing in Taqwa so that we could obtain reward from Allaah, and he would say, “Do not busy and exert yourselves preparing the food. We will eat whatever is easy for you to prepare.”

Imaam Muqbil Desired the Best for His Children

He would say to me, “I hope that you will become a Faqeehah (i.e. a learned scholar)”

Imaam Muqbil Advised with Placing Importance upon the Aqeedah

He advised placing great importance upon the Aqeedah, and he would say, “Placing importance upon the Aqeedah is very crucial. The Muslim without his Aqeedah is not able to stand firm in front of his enemies nor is he able to conduct himself in an Islamic manner. Due to this, our Prophet, Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) began with the Aqeedah and his entire life was geared towards calling to the Aqeedah, related religious verdicts,
and actions.”


Imaam Muqbil stressed calling to Tawheed, and he would say, “Since once they have loved, learned, and understood Tawheed they will not submit to other than it. So once they have freed themselves from Shirk it will be easier for them and they will be more eager to free themselves of other matters.”

Advising the Sunni-Salafi Jinn -Shaykh Muqbil

From | March 25, 2010 | 386 views

Shaykh Ibn Baaz:

The Muslims help their brothers among the jinn to obey Allaah and His Messenger just as they help their human brothers. Humans may help them in some matters without realizing it. They may help them to obey Allaah and His Messenger by teaching and reminding other humans, for the jinn may attend the lessons of humans in the mosques and elsewhere and benefit from them. Humans may also hear some things from the jinn which benefit them; they may wake them up to pray or draw their attention to things which may benefit them or harm them. All of this happens even though the jinn do not make themselves visible to humans. A jinn may make himself visible to some people when pointing them towards something good or something evil. This may happen, although it is rare. Usually they do not appear to humans, although their voices may be heard on some occasions when they wake a person for prayer or tell him of some things. In conclusion, the believing jinn help the believers even though the believers may not realize it, and they love everything good for them.

They may attend lessons, and they love to listen to the Quraan and knowledge, as stated above. The believers among the jinn attend the lessons of humans, at some times and in some lands, and they benefit from the lessons of humans. All of this happens and is well known. This has been clearly stated by many of the scholars whom the jinn contacted and asked about some issues; they told them that they had attended their lessons. All of this is well-known, and Allaah is the One Whose help we seek.
