The Shaykh is a student of Ash-Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmi (rahimahullah) and Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullah). This event will be broadcast LIVE in Masjid Ibn 'Abbaas, Tobago, two masaajid in Trinidad, Masjid ul Khaleefah and Masjid us Sunnah, and six Masaajid in the U.S. Masjid Al-Bukhaari, Florida, Masjid Ibn 'Abbas, Georgia, Masjid Nur Allaah, New York, Masjid as-Sahabah, Ohio and Masjid Tawheed, Michigan.
This lecture event will be translated LIVE into English In shaa Allah.
Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) says in His Book,
“O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do.” [As-Saff :2-3]
This refutes those who neglect to fulfill their promises. This honourable aayah supports the view that several scholars of the Salaf held, that it is necessary to fulfill the promise, regardless of whether the promise includes some type of wealth for the person receiving the promise or otherwise. They also argue from the Sunnah, with the hadeeth recorded in the Two Saheehs in which Allah's Messenger said,
“There are three signs for a hypocrite: when he promises, he breaks his promise; when speaks, he lies; and when he is entrusted, he betrays.” And in another hadeeth in the Saheeh,
“There are four characteristics which if one has all of them, he is the pure hypocrite, and if anyone has any of them, he has a characteristic of hypocrisy, until he abandons it.” So he (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) mentioned breaking the promise among these four characteristics... Therefore Allah implied this meaning, when He continued His admonishment by saying,
“Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do.” Imaam Ahmad and Abu Dawud recorded that ‘Abdullah bin `Amir bin Rabi`ah said, "Allah's Messenger came to us while I was a young boy, and I went out to play. My mother said, `O ‘Abdullah! Come, I want to give you something.' Allah's Messenger said to her,
“What did you want to give him” She said, `Dates.' He said,
“If you had not given them to him, it would have been written as a lie in your record.” [Tafseer Ibn Kathir]
In this regard, Shaykh ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Junayd comments, “It is incumbent upon the scholar and student and the one inviting to good, that he is the first of the people to act upon (that action he’s inviting to). And as for the one who prohibits (others) from evil actions, then he should be the furthest of the people from reprehensible things.” [From Islaam.ae]
Shaykh ‘Abdullah an-Najmi (hafidhahullah) will issue a warning to us surrounding these tremendous verses and by the Permission of Allah we will all strive thereafter to act upon what enjoin and likewise stay away from whatever we prohibit.
We ask Allah to make us from those whose actions are in accordance to their speech and we ask Him, Al-Ghafoor, Ar-Raheem to forgive us our sins and have mercy upon us for verily none can forgive sins but Him.
