They have been afflicted in the world with the most tremendous affliction that can be whilst they perceive not, and that is the death of the heart.
By al-Imām al-‘Allāmah Ibnul Qayyim al-Jawziyyah rahimahullāh
So what Dīn, and what good is there to be found in the one that sees the prohibitions of Allāh being committed, His prescribed punishments being laid to waste and abandoned, His Dīn left, and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allāh (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) being thrown away while he is of cold heart with a silent tongue, a dumb-mute shaytān just as the one who speaks falsehood is a speaking shaytān? Is the tribulation of the Dīn in other than these, who if their source of food and position is safe, then there is no concern for what happens to the Dīn? The best of them is the one that feigns and pretends to be sad. If however, a dispute arose with regards to something that is important to him in his rank or wealth he would most certainly spend out and expend and make strong effort in earnest and he would have utilized the three levels of censure according to his ability. [This is in reference to the hadīth of the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wassallam): “Whoever of you sees an evil then let him change it with his hand. If he is unable then with his tongue. If he is unable then with his heart and that is the weakest of Īmān.” (Muslim)]
For these, along with them being removed from closeness to Allāh and Allāh hating them, they have been afflicted in the world with the most tremendous affliction that can be whilst they perceive not, and that is the death of the heart. For the more complete the life is in the heart, the stronger and stronger its hatred is for the sake of Allāh and His Messenger (sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the more complete its assistance and victory is to the Dīn.

Many of those today who are crying about #Aleppo are the same ones who prevented and try to prevent people from going to Jihad and supporting the Mujahideen. 
They have pages and channels with sometimes millions of followers. So now is their chance to show they really care and rectify their past mistakes.

Remember the people of #Aleppo and #Syria in your duas tonight.
One of the most chilling things i’ve read. Message from brother Tox Sharif
Aleppo died when you refused to ascend the pulpit and encourage people to fight for her honour.
She died when you refused to send your planes & your armies in her defense, she died when you followed orders like nodding dogs and diverted them to ISIS!
She died the day we contacted you asking for support in raising awareness and you told us that politics didnt bring you likes!
She died the day you didnt use your platform to speak about the oppression she faced.
She died the day you looked at her children die on your television screens and it hurt your heart because her children reminded you of your own. Then you glanced down hugged your children and turned the Tv off.
She died on this day but remember tomorrow is not far away and she will stand as witness to all that you did. Tommorow she will describe how her daughters were raped and her sons tortured in the most degrading of ways; gas, phosphorous, cluster bombs, barrel bombs, bunker busters and she will complain to Allah about how you did nothing!
We await this day…….
Silence in the face of evil is evil itself.
[3:150] Nay, Allah is your Maula (Patron, Lord, Helper and Protector, etc.), and He is the Best of helpers.

Do the heavens and the earth weep?Ibn Jarir recorded that Said bin Jubayr said, “A man came to Ibn Abbas, may Allaah be pleased with him, and said to him: O Abu Al-Abbas, Allaah says:

{And the heavens and the earth wept not for them, nor were they given respite}
~ [Surat ad-Dukhaan, 44:29]

– do the heavens and the earth weep for anybody?’ He, may Allaah be pleased with him, said, Yes, there is no one who does not have a gate in the heavens through which his provision comes down and his good deeds ascend. When the believer dies, that gate is closed; it misses him and weeps for him, and the place of prayer on earth where he used to pray and remember Allaah also weeps for him. But the people of Firawn left no trace of righteousness on the earth and they had no good deeds that ascended to Allaah, so the heavens and the earth did not weep for them.”’ 
~ [Tafseer ibn Katheer]

SubhaanAllaah, ask yourselves & reflect, will the heavens and earth weep for you once you depart this worldly life?

The Rapist is considered a Muharib

The Rapist is considered a Muhārib – Important!
Shaykh ‘Alī al-Khudayr(حفظه الله) was asked about: Whoever doesn’t pray, however he outwardly displays to the people that he prays, if the people begin to pray, he gets up to pray, and when he is away from the people, he abandons Salāh?
Shaykh ‘Alī al-Khudayr(حفظه الله) responded by saying: This is Nifāq (hypocrisy), the one who abandons Salāh, if he would abandon and perform, or abandon in secret and display to the people that he prays, this is a Hypocrite, Kāfir Munāfiq.
And if he abandons Salāh and he was told to pray, he replies: No, I will not pray, this is a refuser Kāfir Murtad, because he didn’t repent from that, even if the evidences have been established upon him, he doesn’t care, this is a Murtad.
So there’s a difference between this and that, it’s correct that the reason is 1, which is abandoning Salāh, however there are (certain) traits/circumstances which accompany abandoning Salāh in that situation, which differs with abandoning Salāh in this situation, and the Asmā’ (names – i.e. Whether he’s called a Murtad or Munāfiq) are dependant upon its traits/circumstances and what it necessitates.
(For instance) If a man comes to a woman and committed Zinā with her, he grabbed her from the streets by force and committed Zinā with her.
And a man dated a woman and committed Zinā with her.
The act is 1, which is Zinā, however the traits/circumstances differ.
The first person grabbed her by force, and he is called a Muhārib [1].
The second person took her with her consent and performed it (i.e. Zinā) with her in secret, he is called a Zānī, it is different in this case, so the punishment on the first (man) differs on the punishment on the second (man).
The one who took her with her consent is to be looked at, whether he is محصن (i.e. Has consummated in a marriage before – whether he’s married right now or not), or isn’t (So if he was Muhsan, then he is to be stoned, and if he wasn’t, then he is to be lashed 100 times)
And the one who grabbed her forcefully without her consent and raped her, there is no Tafsīl (i.e. No elaboration and details) pertaining him, (with regards) to whether he’s محصن (Has consummated in a marriage before) or not (i.e. He’s to be killed regardless), even though Zinā is 1 and the same, but the circumstances differ, and if the circumstances differ, the name differs (i.e. Whether he’s called a Zānī or Muhārib), and if the name differs, then the rulings will be of various levels.


Side Note:

[1] The Rapist is considered a “Muhārib” and the punishment for حرابة [Hirābah] is mentioned in this Āyah where Allāh(سبحانه وتعالى) said:
“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war (يحاربون) against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment” [5:33]
So the Muhārib according to the Imāms can either be:
• Killed

• Crucified

• Cut off his hands and feet on opposite sides and be killed and crucified.

A Quote From Sultan Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi رحمه الله تعالى 
“We hope in Allah Most High, to whom be Praise. Who leads the hearts of Muslims to calm what torments them and ruins their prosperity. Where is the sense of honor of the Muslims? The pride of the Believers? The zeal of the Faithful? We shall never cease to be amazed at how the disbelievers for their part have shown trusts, and it is the Muslims who have been lacking in zeal. Not one of them has responded to the call. Not one intervenes to straighten what is distorted; but observe how far the Franks have gone. What unity they have achieved. What aims they pursue. What help they have given. What sums of money they have borrowed and spent. What wealth they have collected and distributed and divided amongst them. There is not a king left in their lands or islands, not a lord or a rich man who has not competed with his neighbors to produce more support and rival his peers in strenuous military efforts. In defense of their religion they consider it a small thing to spend life and soul; and they have kept their infidel brothers supplied with arms and champions of war; and all they have done and all their generosity has been done purely out of zeal for him they worship in jealous defense of their faith. The Muslims on the other hand are weakened and demoralized; they have become negligent and lazy, the victims of unproductive stupefaction and completely lacking in enthusiasm. If, Allah forbid, Islam should draw reign, obscure her splendor, blunt her sword there would be no one, east or west, far or near who would blaze the zeal for Allah’s religion, or choose to come to the aid of Truth against Falsehood. This is the moment to cast off laziness, to summon from far and near all those men who have blood in their veins; but we are confident [He speaks about himself and the small party of believers who began with him and then became a large party]; but we are confident thanks to Allah- alhamdulillah- in the help that will come from Him and entrust ourselves to Him in sincerity of purpose and deepest devotion. InshaAllah, InshaAllah the disbelievers shall perish and the Faithful have a sure deliverance.”

​Imam Ibn Sa’di said: 
“The slave (of Allah) should not feel safe for having the belief (Imaan) he has. Rather he should still have the fear and be afraid that he may get tested by a trial which would take away his faith (Imaan). Because the slave, even if he has reached such and such status (in terms of belief and knowledge), he cannot be certain of remaining safe”.
