Your good deeds are of no avail if you leave Islam

And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate [anything] with Allah , your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers."

[Qur’aan 39:65]

 

He who leaves Islaam will not benefit from the good deeds he did while he was a Muslim.

 

If a person dies while in the state of being a kaafir, he will abide in hell forever.

 

If a person had performed the obligatory Hajj of Islaam and then became an apostate and then became a Muslim again, then according to the Madhhab of al-Shaafi'i he does not have to perform the Hajj again while according to Maalik he has to perform the obligatory Hajj of Islaam again.

Ask protection against the evil of your Nafs

And I do not acquit myself. Indeed, the soul is a persistent enjoiner of evil, except those upon which my Lord has mercy. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."

[Qur’aan 12:53]

 

The Nafs orders you to do that which it desires even if the Pleasure of Allaah is not in it. Only those who Allaah has mercy on are saved from following the desires of their Nafs. Only they are able to keep themselves from following the evil their Nafs commands them to indulge in.

 

Make dua Allaah has mercy on you and keeps you safe from the evil of your Nafs.

 

Abu Rashid Al-Hubrani said:

"I came to 'Abdullah bin 'Amr and said to him: 'Report something to me that you heard from the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).' So he set forth before me a scroll and said: 'This is what the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) wrote for me.'" He said: "So I looked in it and found in it: 'Indeed, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, said: "O Messenger of Allah, teach me what to say at morning and afternoon."

He said: "O Abu Bakr, say: 'O Allah, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, there is none worthy of worship except You, Lord of everything and its Owner, I seek refuge in You from the evil of my NAFS and from the evil of Shaitaan and his Shirk, or that I should do some evil to myself or bring it upon a Muslim

On your face to hell

The ones who are gathered on their faces to Hell – those are the worst in position and farthest astray in [their] way.

[Qur’aan 25:34]

 

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A man said, "O Allah's Prophet! Will Allah gather the non-believers on their faces on the Day of Resurrection?" He said, "Will not the One Who made him walk on his feet in this world, be able to make him walk on his face on the Day of Resurrection?" (Qatada, a subnarrator, said: Yes, By the Power of Our Lord!)

[Sahih al-Bukhaari Hadith No. 4760]

 

Make dua Allaah gives you death as a Muslim and grants you Paradise.

Do not raise your voice above his

O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not.

[Qur’aan 49:2]

 

Allaah has forbidden you to raise your voice in his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) presence lest he (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) becomes angry because of that and as a result of that Allaah becomes angry because of his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) anger and renders the deeds of the one He is angry with futile while he does not know as has come in the authentic hadith:

 

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "A man utters a word pleasing to Allah without considering it of any significance for which Allah exalts his ranks (in Jannah); another one speaks a word displeasing to Allah without considering it of any importance, and for this reason he will sink down into Hell."

[Sahih al-Bukhaari Hadith No. 1515]

Understand what backbiting is and stop

O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.

[Qur’aan 49:12]

 

The following hadith explains what backbiting is.

 

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said:


The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Do you know what is backbiting?"
The Companions said: "Allah and His Messenger know better."
Thereupon he said, "Backbiting is talking about your (Muslim) brother in a manner which he dislikes."
It was said to him: "What if my (Muslim) brother is as I say."
He said, "If he is actually as you say, then that is backbiting; but if that is not in him, that is slandering."


[Sahih Muslim]

 

 

Concentrate on the line in blue. That is what backbiting is. When you speak behind your brother's back and say something which is true.

 

People try to justify their backbiting by saying but what I said is true.

 

Well, that is what backbiting is. Had it been untrue, it would have been slander.

 

There are exceptions to when something is not considered backbiting. But for the normal individual he needs not concern himself with that until he first learns to control his tongue.

 

Stop backbiting your brother(s) in every gathering you attend.
