Islamic Concepts:
"The best deed is the belief in Allah and His Messenger." (Al-Bukhariyy)

  • minaretWhat is Islam?
    Linguistically, Islam means submission. According to Islamic terminology, Islam means a specified submission. It is the submission to what the prophet brought. This takes place by uttering the THE TWO TESTIFICATIONS OF FAITH. Belief, on the other hand, linguistically means certitude. According to Islamic terminology, it means a specified certitude. It is to accept as true what the prophet brought. The least of Belief is to belief in the THE TWO TESTIFICATIONS OF FAITH. Islam and Belief cannot be disassociated. One of them is not accepted without the other, although their original meaning are not identical. Imam Abu Hanifah said in Al-Fiqh Al-'Akbar: "Islam is not acceptable without Belief and Belief is not accepted without Islam. They are like the front of something and its back." Islam is the Religion of all the prophets.

من البدع الحسنة الاحتفال بمولد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، فهذا العمل لم يكن في عهد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ولا فيما يليه، إنما أحدث في أوائل القرن السابع للهجرة، وأول من أحدثه ملك إربل وكان عالمًا تقيًّا شجاعًا يقال له المظفر. جمع لهذا كثيرًا من العلماء فيهم من أهل الحديث والصوفية الصادقين. فاستحسن ذلك العمل العلماء في مشارق الأرض ومغاربها، منهم الحافظ أحمد بن حجر العسقلاني، وتلميذه الحافظ السخاوي، وكذلك الحافظ السيوطي وغيرهم.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. May Allah raise the rank of our master Muhammad and his Al and Companions and protect his nation from that which he fears for it.

اعلم أن البدعة لغة ما أحدث على غير مثال سابق يقال: جئت بأمر بديع أي محدث عجيب لم يعرف قبل ذلك. وفي الشرع المحدَثُ الذي لم ينص عليه القرءان ولا جاء في السنة، قال ابن العربي: "ليست البدعة والمحدَث مذمومين للفظ بدعة ومحدث ولا معنييهما، وإنما يذم من البدعة ما يخالف السنة، ويذم من المحدثات ما دعا إلى الضلالة" ا.هـ.

إن الحمدَ للهِ نحمَدُهُ سُبحانَه وتَعالَى وَنَسْتَهْدِيهِ وَنَشْكُرُه، وَنَعُوذُ باللهِ مِنْ شُرورِ أَنْفُسِنَا وَسَـيِّـئَاتِ أَعْمَالِنا، مَن يهدِ اللهُ فلا مُضِلَّ لَهُ ومن يُضلِلْ فلا هَادِيَ لهُ، وأشهدُ أن لا إلهَ إلا اللهُ وحدَهُ لا شريكَ له ولا مَثيلَ لَهُ ولا ضِدَّ ولا نِدَّ ولا أَعضاءَ ولا هيئةَ ولا صورةَ ولا شكلَ ولا مكانَ لهُ، وأشهدُ أنَّ سيدَنا وحبيبَنا وعظيمَنَا وقائِدَنا وقرَّةَ أعيُنِنا محمدًا عبدُه ورسولُه وصفيُّه وحبيبُه بلَّغَ الرِّسالَةَ وأدَّى الأمانَةَ ونصَحَ الأُمَّةَ فجزاهُ اللهُ عنا خيرَ ما جَزَى نبيًا من أنبيائِه. اللهم صلِّ على محمدٍ صلاةً تقضِي بِها حاجاتِنا وَتُفَرِّجُ بِها كُرُباتِنا وَتَكفِينَا بِها شَرَّ أعدائِنا وسلِّمْ عليه وعلى ءالِه سلامًا كثيرًا.
