The Prophet's Methods Of Correcting People's Mistakes



Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

There are many teaching methods with different means and aids. Correcting mistakes is one of these teaching methods and educationalists call is the "remedial method." Correcting people's mistakes is essential if teaching people is the aim. Correcting mistakes is a divine method the Prophet (pbuh) practiced as the Qur'an was sometimes revealed to correct some mistakes of the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet). The Prophet (pbuh) was divinely guided in correcting the mistakes of people. So his methods are the best mankind has ever known. Following the example of the Prophet (pbuh) is therefore the best approach if one is really keen to teach Islamic knowledge and all the other branches of knowledge. The author has in this book compiled many methods of the Prophet (pbuh) for teaching people and correcting their mistakes. This book, as such, is indispensable for everyone who is concerned with education in general, and Islamic knowledge in particular.





Dealing with Worries and Stress



Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

It is the nature of this life that people will suffer from worries and stress, because this world is the place of disease, hardship and suffering. It is also the nature of this life that people have to put with suffering and hardship for various reasons. So people feel regret for what has happened in the past, anxious about that may happen in the future, and worried about what is going on in the present. The things that cross our mind and make us feel distressed are things in the past that have caused grief, things in the future that we are worried about, and things in the present which concern us.

People react differently to stress and worries, depending on how many things are concerning them, whether the worry is continuous or not, and on whether they have faith in their hearts or are rebellious and sinful. We may describe people's hearts as being of two types: either the heart is the throne of Allaah, filled with light, life, happiness, joy and all the treasures of goodness; or it is the throne of Shaytaan, wherein is distress, darkness, death, grief, worry and anxiety.




33 Ways of developing Khushoo in Salaah



By Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Salaah is the greatest of the practical pillars of Islam, and khushoo in prayer is required by shareeah. When Iblees, the enemy of Allaah, vowed to mislead and tempt the sons of Adam and said Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left [al-Araaf 7:17, interpretation of the meaning], one of his most significant plots became to divert people from salaah by all possible means and to whisper to them during their prayer so as to deprive them of the joy of this worship and cause them to lose the reward for it. As khushoo will be the first thing to disappear from the earth, and we are living in the last times, the words of Hudhayfah (may Allaah be pleased with him) are particularly pertinent to us: The first thing of your religion that you will lose is khushoo, and the last thing that you will lose of your religion is salaah. There may be a person praying who has no goodness in him, and soon you will enter the mosque and not find anyone who has khushoo. (al-Madaarij, 1/521).




I Want to Repent, But

based on the Noble Qur'an and the Honorable Sunnah, quoting many verses and hadiths confirming that Allah's mercy and forgiveness embrace all things, and are greater than all sins.




Weakness of Iman



Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

The phenomenon of weak faith has become very widespread among Muslims, and many people complain about the hardness of their hearts. So often we hear the words, I feel hardness in my heart, I do not find any joy in worship, I feel that my faith has hit rock bottom, Reading Quraan does not move me, I fall into sin so easily. The effects of this affliction can be seen in many people, and this problem is the cause of every disaster and adversity.




Forbidden



The Forbidden, Issues Of Great Importance That We Underestimate. Al-Muharramat (the forbidden) are the limits of Allaah (the Mighty and Magnificent). "These are the limits of Allaah, so do not approach them". . Allaah has threatened whoever transgresses His limits and violates His sacraments stating (Glorified be He): "And whoever disobeys Allaah and His messenger and transgresses His limits - He will put him into the fire to abide eternally therein, and he will have a humilating punishment." It is obligatory to avoid al-muharramaat in view of the saying of the prophet: "And whatever I forbade you, then avoid it and whatever I enjoined upon you, then fulfill as much of it as you able." I ask Allaah guidance, success, and observance of His limits for myself and for my Muslim brothers. I ak Him (Glorified be He) to help us avoid al-muharramaat and protect us from sins and evil deeds, Allaah is the best protector and He is the Most Merciful (Author)

Rulings of Udhiyah Sacrifice



By: Udhiyah refers to the animal (camel, cattle or sheep) that is sacrificed as an act of worship to Allaah, in the country in which the person offering the sacrifice lives, during the period from after the Eid prayer on the Day of Nahr (Eid al-Adhaa) until the last of the Days of Tashreeq (the 13 th day of Dhul-Hijjah), with the intention of offering sacrifice. Udhiyah is one of the great rituals of Islam, in which we remember the Unity of Allaah, His blessings upon us and the obedience of our father Ibraaheem to his Lord, and in this act of udhiyah there is much goodness and blessing.

Matters Related to Fasting



by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid. Allah has blessed His slaves with certain seasons of goodness, in which hasanat (rewards for good deeds) are multiplied, sayyi'at (bad deeds) are forgiven, people's status is raised and the hearts of the believers turn to their Lord. Those who purify themselves attain success and those who corrupt themselves fail. One of the greatest acts of worship is fasting, which Allah has made obligatory to his slaves. As the status of this act of worship is so high, it is essential to learn the Ahkam (rulings) that have to do with the month of fasting, so that the Muslim will know what is obligatory, in order to do it, what is haram, in order to avoid it, and what is permissible, so that he does not need to subject himself to hardship by depriving himself of it. This book is a good summary of the rulings, etiquettes, and Sunnah of fasting.

Why Allah (swt) Decrees Wars and Catastrophes



There is a wisdom behind everything that appears evil; wars, poverty, diseases, famine, earthquakes, volcanoes, and even the existence of disbelief upon the earth; when people kill each other, it happens for a reason.

Reflection Upon The Current Crusade War



Indeed, Allaah responds to the supplications of Muslims.

This book is an adaption of a friday khutbah given by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid that makes a clear distinction between our dua and Alllahs help in whatever shape or form Allah (swt) sees best.




Love Of Allah



Love of Allah is life itself, and to be deprived of it entails a terrible death; it is the light without which one would sail in a sea of darkness; it is the cure without which one's heart will be overwhelmed by a multitude of diseases; it is the joy without which one will remain in permanent grief; it is the essence of faith and deeds, without which they become like a soulless body.
