Weeping from fear of Allah

llâh the Most High, says:
"Allâh has sent down the best statement, a Book its part resembling each other in goodness and truth oft repeated. The skins of those who fear their lord shiver from it. Then their skins and hearts soften to the remembrance of Allâh" (39:23)
"Those who were given knowledge before it (ie the Jews and Christians) when it is recited to them, fall down on their faces in humble prostration. And they say glory be to our Lord! Truly the promise of our Lord must be fulfilled. And they fall down on their faces weeping and it adds to their humility" (17:107-109)
It has been related on the authority of Abû Hurayrah (ra) who said: "I heard the Messenger of Allâh (saw) say:
"Seven will be granted the shade of Allâh on a day when there will be no shade but His. A just ruler, a youth who has been brought up worshipping Allâh, a man whose heart is attached to the mosque, two people who love each other for the sake of Allâh and meet and part upon that, a man who is allurred by a woman of high standing and beauty and he says, "I fear Allâh", one who gives charity in secret so that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given, and a man whose eyes fill up with tears when he remembers Allâh in private" (Bukhârî, Muslim and others)
"The fire will not touch a man who weeps out of the fear of Allâh until the milk returns to the breasts. Also the dust produced in jihâd and the smoke of hell will never co-exist". (on the authority of Abû Hurayrah (ra), reported at-Tirmidhî (hasan sahîh), an-Nasâ'i and al Hâkim (sahîh))

Sheikh Abdullah Azzam biography

Dr Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, assassinated in Pakistan in 1989
Dr. Sheikh Abdullah Yusuf Azzam. Palestinian. Assassinated on 24 November 1989 in
Peshawar, Pakistan, Aged 48. 1st Hand Accounts.

Time Magazine wrote about him that ' he was the reviver of Jihad in the 20th Century'.
Abdullah Yusuf Azzam was born in the village of Ass-ba'ah Al-Hartiyeh, province of
Jineen in the occupied sacred land of Palestine in 1941 CE. He was brought up in a
humble house where he was taught Islam, and was fed with the love of Allah subhana wa
ta'ala, His Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam), those striving in the Way of Allah
subhana wa ta'ala, the righteous people and the desire for the Hereafter.
Abdullah Azzam was a distinguished kid who started propagating Islam at an early age.
His peers knew him as a pious child. He showed signs of excellence at an early age. His
teachers recognized this while he was still at elementary school.
Sheikh Abdullah Azzam was known for his perseverance and serious nature ever since he
was a small boy. He received his early elementary and secondary education in his village,
and continued his education at the agricultural Khadorri College where he obtained a
Diploma. Although he was the youngest of his colleagues, he was the cleverest and the
smartest. After he graduated from Khadorri College, he worked as a teacher in a village
called Adder in South Jordan. Later he joined Sharia College in Damascus University
where he obtained a B.A. Degree in Shariah (Islamic Law) in 1966. After the Jews
captured the West Bank in 1967, Sheikh Abdullah Azzam decided to migrate to Jordan,
because he could not live under the Jews' occupation of Palestine. The sin of the Israeli
tanks rolling into the West Bank without any resistance made him even more determined
to migrate in order to learn the skills necessary to fight.

In the late 1960's he joined the Jihad against the Israeli occupation of Palestine from
Jordan. Soon after that, he went to Egypt and graduated with a Masters Degree in Shariah
from the University of Al-Azhar. In 1970 and after Jihad came to a halt by forcing PLO
forces out of Jordan, he assumed the position of teaching in the Jordanian University in
Amman. In 1971 he was awarded a scholarship to Al-Azhar University in Cairo from
which he obtained a Ph.D Degree in Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence (Usool-ul-Fiqh)
in 1973. During his stay in Egypt he came to know the family of Shaheed Sayyed Qutb.
Sheikh Abdullah Azzam spent a long time participating in the Jihad in Palestine.
However, matters there were not to his liking, for the people involved in the Jihad were
far removed from Islam. He told of how these people used to spend the night’s playing
cards and listening to music, under the illusion that they were performing Jihad to liberate
Palestine. Sheikh Abdullah Azzam mentioned that, out of the thousands in the camp he
was in, the number of people who offered their Salah in congregation were so few that
they could be counted on one hand. He tried to steer them towards Islam, but they
resisted his attempts. One day he rhetorically asked one of the 'Mujahideen' what the
religion behind the Palestinian revolution was, to which the man replied, quite clearly and
"This revolution has no religion behind it."
This was the last straw. Sheikh Abdullah Azzam left Palestine, and went to Saudi Arabia
to teach in the universities there.

directions regarding manhaj by sheikh usama ibn laden hafidhahullah

 In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

All praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of all that exists, and may prayers and peace be upon Muhammad, and upon his family and all of his companions.

To proceed:

When we speak of the states through which the Ummah is passing in these days, and what has befallen it of occupation and oppression and the aggression of the Israeli and American forces, and the decline of the shade of al-Islaam from this earth, it becomes necessary to seek the guidance of Muhammad (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam) in establishing this religion, the day when it began as something strange at the beginning of al-Islaam.

description of paradise

Description of Paradise

by Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim, Rahimahullaah

Ibn al-Qayyim said, in regards
to the description of the Paradise and the delights that it contains:

"And if you ask about its ground and its soil, then it is of musk and

And if you ask about its roof, then it is the Throne of the Most

And if you ask about its rocks, then they are pearls and jewels.

explanation of hadith about deeds depending upon intention(by ibn hajar)

How did the revelation begin to Allâh’s Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم

And the Statement of Allâh:

إِنَّا أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ كَمَا أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ نُوحٍ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ مِن بَعْدِه

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. (V.4:163).

  1. Umar bin Al-Khattab narrated:

I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person has only what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for.”

Ibn Hajar’s Explanation:

An objection was raised in regards to the Author’s (Al Bukhari) lack of an opening address beginning with the praise of Allah الحمد, and the testimony of faith الشهادة, based on the hadith of Abu Hurairah that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said: Every affair that does not begin with the praise of Allah is deficient.(Abu Dawood and others)

And he صلى الله عليه و سلم said: “Every sermon which does not contain a testimony (الشهادة ) is like a hand cut off”.  (Abu Dawood and others)

-And the answer to that objection is:
