Whatever you abandoned for Allah, Don’t Return to it – Sheik Uthaymin
Whatever you abandoned for Allah, don’t return to it
Sheik ibn Uthaymin
Translated by Abu Qayla Rasheed bin Estes Barbee
The following is a summary translation taken from sahab.net
Sheik Uthaymin, may Allah have mercy upon him, said in his explanation of the hadith of Sa’d bin Abi Waqaas in the chapter of sincerity and intention in Riyaadis Saaliheen
The second affair: That no one from amongst them would return to Mecca after they had left it migrating to Allah and His Messenger.
Because if you leave a land migrating to Allah and His Messenger then it is like the wealth that you gave in charity, it is not possible that you can take it back.
And in a similar fashion, everything that the person leaves for the sake of Allah, then it is not possible that they return to it.
And with this; many of the people have been given success to remove the televisions from their homes thus making repentance to Allah and placing themselves far away from it and the evil that it contains; so they say, ‘is it now possible for us to return the television to our homes?’
We say, no; after you have removed it for the sake of Allah do not return it. Because if the person abandons something for the sake of Allah and makes hijra from something for the sake of Allah, he does not return to it. And for this reason the Messenger, peace and blessings are upon him, asked his Lord to allow his companions to continue in their hijra.
