Swarthmoor's Weblog

I want to, in-sha’ Allah, shed a little more clarity on the controversy between the Sunni `aqidah and that of the quasi-salafis (Wahhabis).  Sadly, many of those who profess to follow traditional Sunni scholarship and `aqidah have only exacerbated the confusion, for they (these pseudo-tradtionalists) have now tried to “close the door” on discussing matters of kufr (disbelief) and riddah (apostasy).  None of this, of course, should be very surprising given that one of their main propagators/institutions has now refused to call even Christians and Jews of this era “disbelievers and kuffar” without a great deal of equivocation—that’s if they are willing to do so at all (and I am not talking about the genuine followers of Jesus or Moses of the past—I am talking about those people who today ascribe to Allah non-befitting attributes and deem that our Messenger Muhammad lied about his Prophethood—such people aren’t Muslim; hence they…

 The blessed resting place of Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ata’illah Raheemahullah

 

Sayyiduna ‘Taj al Deen’, Shaykh Abu’l Fadl Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al Kareem ibn Ata’illah al Iskandari raheemahullah known simply as ibn Ata’illah al Iskandari – raheemahullah – was born in Alexandria [Iskandariyya], Egypt  over 700 years ago. Shaykh ibn Ata’illah raheemahullah were exposed to the Deen at a very young age, and this was pivotal in them later becoming a great Maliki Jurist and a Muhaddith. Although initially they were sceptical of Sufism – although their father was a student of Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah – this view changed for the better when they themselves set their eyes upon Shaykh Abu’l Abbas al Mursi raheemahullah. Verily, this was…

The Battle with Ramadan

Posted: July 10, 2015 in Uncategorized

Muslim Words

If one could personify Ramadan, it would be an individual from whom you simply could not remove your gaze – hypnotized by its magnanimity. This individual would command the presence of a legendary hero, a champion, that single-handedly imprisoned the devils of this world, and has now arrived to free us from the pits of hell. Ramadan, the only guest that visits millions around the world yearly, yet never overstays its welcome. That one guest for which innumerable slaves pine, cry and surrender for. And at last, 11 months later, it has arrived at our door-step Alhamdulillah (All praise is for Allah). Rather, it has spent two-thirds of its destined time with us already, and is well under-way delivering its end-game: The Night of Power. That same night during the last ten on which our worship is worth 1000 months.
