The eyes which will not see the Fire

There is a hadiith narrated by al-Tabaraani. Sheikh al-Albaani graded it authentic when all the routes of transmission by means of which it has reached are taken into consideration. 

 

It mentions three people whose eyes will never see the Fire [of Hell]. One of the eyes mentioned are the ones kept away from looking at those things which Allaah has forbidden to look at. 

 

Today, we live in a society dominated by scantly dressed females. Porn is easily accessible. You see half-covered and nude females on any TV show you turn on.  

 

Modesty has been lost. 

 

Safeguard your eyes. Look away whenever you see something impermissible. Remind yourself that you are giving up a pleasure of this temporary world for safety from the eternal Fire of Hell

 

And if you make the mistake of looking. If you look because the devil or your Nafs overpowered you, then weep out of the fear of Allaah for what you have done. Because the second pair of eyes which are mentioned in the hadith are those which weep out of the fear of Allaah.

 

They, too, will not see the Fire.
 

ثلاثة لا ترى أعينهم النار: عين حرست في سبيل الله, وعين بكت من خشية الله, وعين كفت عن محارم الله

Matters of Ijtihaad

The Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) disagreed in matters of Ijtihaad and yet they were one Ummah, brothers, and loved one another.

Google is your Imaam

Muqallid scholars [and yes that sounds like an oxy-moron which it is] like to put down others by saying Google is their Imaam. A reminder to these Jaahils. Google does not answer questions you type in. It directs you to websites maintained by "scholars" of your Madhaahib which provide answers.

Get a better catch line to put down your opposition next time! That may be too much of an ask from blind followers as thinking isn't one of their strong points.

Biased Madhhabism

Time and time again….what muqallids will do to defend their Madhaahib.

 

And it is astonishing that al-'ainii drew evidence to defend Abu Hanifah's view [of how much a Mudd is] by means of these two weak hadiith and did not mention what has been said about them [in regards to their being weak] which makes them unfit to be used for evidence …

He is not alone. Ibn Qudaamah from the Hanbali does not mention that the narrations of Aishah and Ibn Abbaas in regards to giving Fatwaa of not fasting the missed fasts on behalf of the dead are also weak. He defends his Madhhab's position without mentioning this. One has to read Ibn Hajar's Fath al-Baari to discover this truth or look at the chain.

 

How sad.

 

On the positive side you did have Abu Yusuf who rejected Abu Hanifah's position in regards to the mudd as he knew full well that his Imaam's position had no solid basis. Abu Yusuf, rightfully, sided with the majority on the issue.

What Allaah chooses for you

Do not dislike anything Allaah has chosen for you. Allaah chooses things in which there is a great benefit which you are unaware of.
