Before the reader is a concise yet highly beneficial article wherein al-Shaykh Muḥammad Ibn Ṣāliḥ al-'Uthaymīn (رحمه الله) briefly explains the three categories in which cursing time can fall into. It would serve us all well to read and understand this very short article so that we may be upon certaintly regarding this subtle affair related to our 'Aqīdah and thus safeguard ourselves from falling into anything displeasing to our Lord (سبحانه وتعالى). This article was translated by our noble brother and teacher Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis (حفظه الله).
~ An excerpt taken from the article ~
"That one merely intends to inform (of something occurring on that day) without blaming time, such as saying 'we are exhausted from the severe heat of this day or its cold' or its like, since one’s actions are by intentions and this is sound to be used merely to inform."
On Thursday 28th April 2016 our Noble Shaykh Ṣalāḥ Kintūsh delivered a LIVE Tele-Lecture with Muwahhideen Publications entitled, “The Reality of the Miracles of the Awliyā` Between Extremism and Negligence”. The Shaykh was asked the following question after the lecture.
Questioner: There are some Christian Syrians in our country who have produced videos and pictures of co-called miracles performed by their priests and with the statues of Jesus and Mary and they claim that this is proof that they are upon the truth. How do we respond to this yā Shaykh?
Shaykh Ṣalāḥ Kintūsh(حفظه الله): ...Allāh said:
سَحَرُوا أَعْيُنَ النَّاسِ وَاسْتَرْهَبُوهُمْ وَجَاءُوا بِسِحْرٍ عَظِيم
So we say that being given some ability to put forth something that is out of the ordinary is no proof that a person is either following the truth or falsehood. The proof of following truth is having acceptable evidence and it is not a person having been given these out of the ordinary tricks and the likes because we know that the soothsayers, magicians and the likes of these people do such things.
The Shaykh continues his answer...
