Question posed to Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him):
Q. May Allaah bestow good upon you. How can we differentiate between blameworthy silence regarding fitan (trials and tribulation) and praiseworthy non-involvement in it?
A. “Al-Fitan, no one should speak about it except for the people of knowledge and insight. Not everyone is to speak concerning it. If the ignorant speak regarding the Fitan the Fitan increases. As for the case if the scholars were to speak about the fitan and clarify it, then it will decrease by the permission of Allaah. Therefore in relation to fitan, not everyone is to speak concerning it. Rather the only ones that are to speak concerning the fitan are the people of knowledge and insight, those who know the truth from falsehood. And they know how to speak (concerning the fitan). It is not for everyone to speak concerning the fitan and give religious verdicts regarding it. Na’am.”

The Unity of Ahlus-Sunnah in their Position Against Ahlul-Bid’ah – Abu Ramlah Adam Lazarus (audio/english)
Video uploaded by UmmSalsabeel
Our brother, Aboo Ramlah Aadam Lazarus hafithahullaah bases this reminder upon a lecture delivered by Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Haadee hafithahullah entitled, “The Correct Position Against the People of Innovation.”
The speaker first defines who are the people of Sunnah and who are the people of Bid’ah (innovation), then he speaks about some of the Salafee brothers who are negligent in dealing with the people of bid’ah and who are put off when topics of manhaj are discussed.
Towards the end, the speaker brings more benefits from the speech of Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee hafithahullaah, such as the claim that refutation of the people of bid’ah must come from a Scholar only and other doubts.
This lecture is transcribed by Brother Maher Attiyah. May Allaah reward him.

How Ahlus Sunnah need to be unified in their stance toward Ahlul Bid’ah
All Praise is due to Allaah, and may the peace and blessings be upon the Messenger, his family, his companions, and those who follow them til the Day of Judgment.
[The speaker was Abu Ramlah Aadam Lazarus, a graduate of Madeenah University who compiled this lecture from Shaikh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee's tape Al mawqif a sahih min ahlul bid'ah ("The Correct Position Against the People of Innovation") and from additional benefits by Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee and Shaikh 'Ubaid A-Jabiree (hafidhahumullaah).]
This [topic] is necessary because the people of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah in this time seem confused on this issue. As for the people of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah, they are the people who hold fast to the Qur`an and Sunnah, with the understanding of the sahaba (companions) and [the rest of] the salaf. And as for Ahlul Bid’ah, they are those who have innovated into Islam that which is not from it – from beliefs or actions – or they choose to understand the text of the Qur`an and Sunnah with their own desire, rather than basing their understanding on the understanding of the sahaba and [the rest of] the salaf.

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Whether you deny the fact or try to explain it away, the reality is you will be placed in a cold, dark and possibly damp place as you see if only you visit the grave yards. All those who came before you whether they be from the Prophets and Messengers (with the exception of ‘Eesaa who is still alive and upon returning back to the earth Allah will also take his soul after a period), the Sahabah, the righteous and the sinful, all of us will die!!
Do you for a second believe that there is any place in this world where the Angel of Death will be unable to reach you??? If you hide yourself in the highest fortress with the ultimate in locks that the Angel of Death will not be able to take you??
Don’t forget this fact when you are lying, decieving, cheating and misbehaving and being disobedient to your parents that you have forgotten the fact that ALLAH WILL TAKE YOU!!! DON’T FORGET THAT FACT!! When your parents tell you to pray, when your parents ask you to do something and you ignore them and you think of doing something else DON’T FORGET THE FACT THAT ALLAH HAS CONNECTED YOUR WORSHIP, MADE YOUR WORSHIP, PART OF THAT WORSHIP, OBEDIENCE TO YOUR PARENTS AND BEING GOOD TO YOUR PARENTS…!!!

Q: Is it permissible to migrate to a non-Muslim country for work? Is it permissible to adopt an un-Islamic nationality?
A: If you are seeking work and earning livelihood, you have to travel to Muslim countries and dispense yourself from traveling to non-Muslim countries, the livelihood which constitutes a potential threat to your `Aqidah (creed) and a diversion from the proper Islamic codes of ethics. It is prohibited for the Muslim to adopt a non-Muslim nationality as this entails showing willing submission to Kafirs (disbelievers) as well as abiding by their rulings.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Questioner: O Utsaadh! Are there people who have now entered Paradise or people who have entered the Fire? Like the aayah in Surah Yaa Seen, “It was said to him, ‘Enter Paradise.’” [Yaa Seen 36:26]
Al-Albaani: This is about what will be. As for now, there is nothing but the life of al-Barzakh. Entering Paradise or the Fire is appointed at the Reckoning … [at] the resurrection on the Day of Resurrection.
Questioner: Even the martyrs and Prophets?
Al-Albaani: All of them. But their souls are in a specific state of bliss as he عليه السلام said, “The souls of the martyrs are in the crops of green birds, eating from the fruits of Paradise,” and likewise, “The souls of the believers are in the bellies of green birds, eating from the fruits of Paradise.” So this bliss is that of the souls, as for the bliss of the body and soul together and likewise the torment [of them both together], that will not be except after the resurrection.
Questioner: Okay, O Ustaadh! What we understood, according to our intellect, is that when a person is living, his soul and body are interconnected …, when Allaah the Mighty and Majestic says, “Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive …” [Aali-Imraan 3:169] what I mean is [i.e., what I understand from the aayah is], ‘Nay, they are alive …’ i.e., alive as in the soul is in the body, connected.
Al-Albaani: This is something well-known which does not need to be asked about, the Prophet explained it for you and gave you the answer and I mentioned it to you earlier … the souls of the martyrs are in the crops of green birds, what does this mean? That firstly, the life of a martyr is commensurate with his rank before Allaah and, secondly, [at the same time it is also commensurate] with his existence in barzakh.
Life differs. Life in Barzakh differs from life in this world, and life in the Hereafter differs from both of those forms of life together, life in the Hereafter is different from life in al-Barzakh and life in this world too.
For this reason it is not permissible for a person to employ analogical reasoning [qiyas] … making an analogy of that which is Unseen based upon that which is, such that you say, ‘We don’t know life except in this manner!’
Don’t use this life which you are familiar with to make an analogy of that life which you are not acquainted with; especially when some texts have been related which totally clarify for you the fact that the life of martyrs which our Lord the Mighty and Majestic affirmed in the Quraan, saying, “Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, receiving provision …” … what is their provision?
It is not [various] dishes like those we have, their provision is that they eat by way of what that green bird eats, this is the provision [being referred to], the hadith explains the Quraan.
Questioner: When the Prophet عليه الصلاة والسلام saw Paradise and the Fire and found those who were being punished therein and those who were in bliss, how is that then?
Al-Albaani: Yes, the [differing] states that the Companions of Paradise and those of the Fire will be in [i.e., after Barzakh, on the Day of Judegement] was unveiled to him–this is the true unveiling [kashf] which the Sufis have stolen and attributed to themselves; it [i.e., such kashf] is only for the Prophets and Messengers.

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy
Question Number 19:
From Libya, the questioner asks:
‘’It is not hidden (regarding) what is happening in Syria and to its people, and to the Muslims (with regards) to killing, violation of honour, destruction of houses and mosques by the administration of Bash’shaar Asad [The Nusayree, the Raafidi (Shi’ee)]; so do we (perform) the Qunoot and supplicate for them in the obligatory prayers knowing that the one in charge of the religious affairs has allowed the Imaams of the mosques to (perform) Qunoot?”
My dear son, you asked and accomplished (the affair). The affair has been accomplished; the ministry of religious affairs has given permission and it has acted on behalf of the ruler by (allowing) the Qunoot on behalf of your believing brothers—those who are weak and oppressed in Syria—so (perform) Qunoot. The one amongst you who wants to make Qunoot in his house, (then) even if the ruler did not allow the Qunoot; he is (still allowed to perform the Qunoot in his house). But I advise you:
Specify the believers (in your supplication) and not for the whole nation, because there is one in the nation who is a ba’thee (socialist/communist), and amongst them is one whose orientation is towards democracy, secularism; so specify the believers (in your supplication).
Adopt a middle course in your supplication; do not prolong it, make it short. That which some of the Imaams of the mosques do in the beginning of the Witr Qunoot, perhaps saying: ‘’O Allaah give us rain’’ and (then sometimes) supplicates for the Muslims in general. This is not transmitted from the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). And what is transmitted in the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) in Bukhaari, Muslim and its like, is to specify those who are weak and oppressed amongst the believers, men and women.
