Shaykh Bin Baz (rahimahullaah) said:
If the people of the truth remained silent about clarifying it, then certainly those upon error would continue upon their errors, and others would follow them in error; likewise, those who are silent will have drawn on themselves the sin of concealment about which Allah (subhanahu) threatened them:
Indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture – those are cursed by Allah and cursed by those who curse, except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those – I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. [Surah al-Baqarah (2):159-160]
Indeed, Allah took a covenant with the scholars from the People of the Book to clarify the book for the people and not to conceal it, and he blamed them for throwing it behind their backs, and he warned us from following them. So, if Ahlus-Sunnah remained quiet about clarifying the mistakes of those who oppose the Qur’an and Sunnah, they have resembled the People of the Book whom Allah is angry with and those who are astray.
Likewise, Shaykh Bin Baz (rahimahullaah) warned by name. He said: “Usamah b. Laden is from those who cause corruption on earth. He searches out evil, corrupt paths, and he exited from obedience to those in authority.”

I want to repent to Allah from the trait of envy, this evil trait. And I am trying to free myself from it as much as I am able, but satan beautifies it for me in many instances by way of jealousy. Thus I become jealous of some of my female friends or other women, and then I start to envy them. And I heard from one of my friends, she said: ‘suppress your jealousy and your envy in your heart and do not utter any of it on your tongue so that Allah will not hold you accountable for it’. Benefit me, what should I do? May Allah bless you.
Shaykh bin Baz:
Yes, if you feel anything (of envy) then struggle with yourself and suppress what is with you (of envy), and do not do anything that opposes the legislation of Allah. And do not harm the female or male that you envy, not by statement nor by action and ask Allah to remove it from your heart and then it will not harm you.
Because if the person envies but they do not actualized it then that will not harm them, if they do not do anything; there is no harming the envied person, no removing of the blessings, and no speaking against the honor of the person, but rather it is only something suppressed inside then it will not harm them.
But let them be cautious; not to say anything that will harm the person they envy, or do anything that will harm them. Because it has been narrated in a hadith of the Prophet peace and blessings are upon him, that he said, ‘Beware of envy, because verily envy eats away the good deeds like fire eats away firewood.’
Therefore envy is evil, but it begins with the one who envies. It harms the one who envies before it harms anyone else. So it is upon the believing man and woman to ask Allah for safety and security.
The believing man beseeches Allah, and likewise the believing woman beseeches Allah to remove that from her heart until no trace of that remains in her heart; and whenever you feel some envy then struggle with yourself to suppress it and to keep it just in the heart without harming the envied person, without harming them by action or statement. And with Allah help is sought.

Sunnah Prayers Explained by Shaykh Bin Baz
May Allah have Mercy upon him
What are the Rawatib (Sunnah Prayers associated with Obligatory Prayers) which can be made up if the person misses them?
Shaykh Bin Baz:
The Rawatib which the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to preserve are twelve Rakats, these are the Rawatib; for the resident not the traveler. Twelve Rakats; four before Thur prayer with two tasleems, and two after Thur prayer; this is six. Two after Magrib prayer and two after Isha prayer; this is ten. And two before the morning (Fajr) prayer; this is twelve. The Prophet, peace be upon him, used to practice these consistently while present at his residence. And he, peace be upon him, said:
“Whoever preserves four Rakats before Thur and four after it, Allah will make him forbidden for the Fire.”
If the person prays four after Thur, thus adding two Rakat then this is better, but it is not Rawatib. The Rawatib is two Rakats. If he prays four after Thur prayer then this has in it virtue and a tremendous amount of good.
In a similar fashion before Asr prayer it is recommended for the person to pray four Rakats, but these are not Rawatib, rather they are recommended. This is based upon the statement of the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him:
“May Allah have mercy upon the person who prays four Rakats before Asr prayer”.
Likewise if he prays two Rakats before Magrib prayer and two Rakats before Isha prayer, between the Athan and the Iqamah, this is recommended; but these are not Rawatib. Rather it is recommended after the Athan to pray two Rakats, after the Athan for Maghrib and after the Athan for Isha the person prays two Rakats; two Rakats which are different than the two Rakats to greet the Masjid.
As for greeting the Masjid, if the person enters the Masjid even before the Athan then he greets the Masjid with two Rakats of prayer. And if he enters after the Athan, the Athan of Maghrib or after the Athan of Isha, then he greets the Masjid with two Rakats of prayer and this will suffice him from the two Rakats between the Athan and the Iqamah.
As for travel - then it is only prescribed to pray the Sunnah prayers of Fajr and the Witr prayer. During travel the person only prays the Witr and Tahajjud prayers during the night, and he prays the Sunnah prayers of Fajr. As for the Sunnah prayers of Thur, Maghrib, and Isha, then it is better to leave them during travel. But as it relates to the Sunnah prayers of Fajr, then the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to preserve then during travel and while he was a resident.
And if the person misses the Sunnah prayer for Fajr he prays them after the Fajr prayer or after the sun has risen. As for the other Rawatib, for Thur, Maghrib, and Isha, then they are not made up after the time has passed; if the time passed they are not made up. Therefore one would not make up the Sunnah prayers for Thur after Asr, nor the Sunnah prayers for Maghrib after Isha, nor the Sunnah prayers for Isha after Fajr. These prayers are not made up. As for the Sunnah prayer for Fajr then it is made up. If he prays it after the Fajr prayer then there is no problem with this. And if he prays it after the sun has risen and reached its height then this is better.
As for the Sunnah prayer of Duha and Tahajjud prayers at night then they are prescribed for the travel and the resident. Likewise is the Sunnah prayer after completing Wudu; after the person completes Wudu it is recommended (for him to pray) whether he is on a journey or a resident.
Likewise if a person enters a Masjid while upon a journey he also prays two Rakats of prayer, even if he is travelling. May Allah reward you with good.
Therefore we will summarize the answer once again, if you will allow me; the Sunnah prayers which are recommended to make up.
First the summary of the answer: The twelve Rawatib which are specific to the resident are: Four Rakats before Thur with two tasleems, two Rakats after Thur with one tasleem; two Rakats after Maghrib with one tasleem; two Rakats after Isha with one tasleem, and two Rakats before the morning prayer after the rising of the Fajr. These are the Rawatib that the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to preserve.
As for those that are made up then it is only the Sunnah prayer for Fajr, if it is missed then it is made up after Fajr or after the rising of the sun. Likewise the Sunnah prayers that come before Thur can be made up after Thur. If the four Sunnah prayer that come before Thur are missed they are prayed after Thur, then he prays the two Rakats after Thur; thus praying six Rakats. The four that come before Thur, and the two Rawatib that come after Thur. May Allah reward you with good.
