This is Imaan

The tyrant (Pharaoh) threatened to cut off their hands and feet from opposite sides and crucify them. Yet, they said we will not obey you over Allaah. 


Allaah says:

They said, "Never will we prefer you over what has come to us of clear proofs and [over] He who created us. So decree whatever you are to decree. You can only decree for this worldly life.

[Qur’aan 20:72]

When the disobedient get good

But those who deny Our signs – We will progressively lead them [to destruction] from where they do not know.

[Qur’aan 7:182]

So when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We opened to them the doors of every [good] thing until, when they rejoiced in that which they were given, We seized them suddenly, and they were [then] in despair.

[Qur’aan 6:44]


When you see that Allaah gives a slave that which he loves of the world despite his (i.e. the slave's) disobedience, then that is only 'istidraaj.


Sheikh al-Albaani considered the chain of narrators of this narration to be strong.

al-Suyuuti considered the narration to be Hasan


When you disobey Allaah and get what you love of this world, consider yourself in trouble. 

You are being set up for utter destruction.

Repent, give up your disobedient ways, and return to Allaah's obedience. Do not let the blessings you keep getting deceive you into thinking all is good.

The people who commit major sins

And when you see those who engage in [offensive] discourse concerning Our verses, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversion. And if Satan should cause you to forget, then do not remain after the reminder with the wrongdoing people.

[Qur’aan 6:68]


Ibn al-Arabi said:

And this (Verse) is evidence that it is not permissible to [sit] in the gatherings of the people involved in major sins.


Note: This is not Ibn Arabi, the disputed Sufi. This is the Ibn al-Arabi who was a well respected Maaliki jurist.

Sale and trade during Jumu’ah prayer

O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.

[Qur’aan 62:9]

al-Qurtubi says that the Madhhab of al-Shaafi'i is that any sale conducted during the time of Jumu'ah prayer will be contracted and won't be invalid. 

al-Qurtubi holds the opinion that the correct opinion is that the sale and trade conducted at the time of Jumu'ah prayer is invalid and uses the following hadith to support his view:


'Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said:

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa allam) said, "He who does something contrary to our way will have it rejected."

[Sahih Muslim]


Ibn al-Arabi [the Maaliki jurist] also holds the opinion that the sale and trade conducted at the time of Jumu'ah prayer will be in valid. 

The sale and trade of those who are not required to attend the Jumu'ah prayer is valid.

We are closer to him than his jugular vein

And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein

[Qur’aan 50:16]

Imaam al-Tabari says that the scholars of the Arabic language have differed in regards to the meaning of the portion of the Verse which reads:


"and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein"


وقال آخرون: بل معنى ذلك ( وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ ) بالعلم بما تُوَسْوس به نفسه

A group has said that the meaning of that ("and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein") is by means knowledge of that which his soul whispers to him
