Understanding Maqaasid al-Ahkaam ash-Shar'iah

Allah (swt) sent Muhammad (saw) with the Islamic Sharee’ah as a mercy for mankind. He (swt) said: وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ “And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds”  {Al-Anbiyaa’ : 107} And Allah Ta’Aalaa said: وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ وَلَا يَزِيدُ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا خَسَارًا “And we have revealed from the Qur’an that which is a cure and mercy for the believers”  {Al-Israa’ : 82} Allah (swt) sent His Messenger with Islaam, as a mercy to mankind, to bring them out from worshipping other than Allah to worshipping Allah and He (swt) organised their relationships with the best of systems. The aim and purpose of the Sharee’ah as a whole is therefore a Rahmah (mercy) for mankind. As the Sharee’ah represents a Rahmah. This means that the Sharee’ah as a whole came to bring and secure Masaalih (benefits/interests) and to repel Mafaasid (unbeneficial and corrupting/bad

Q&A: Gaps in Conduct do not Strip a Muslim of his Islamic Aqeedah

Question: Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh May Allah bless you our honorable Sheikh, and grant you victory and reward you with good. Our honorable Sheikh, It came in the book,  The Islamic Personality, Volume I  that there are actions that contradict the Aqeedah that Muslims do, but they do not divest them from the Aqeedah, and it was clarified that the Muslim may inadvertently fail to associate his concepts with his Aqeedah (creed) or he may be ignorant of the contradiction between such concepts and his Aqeedah or his Islamic Shakhsiyya (personality) or Shaytān (Satan) may influence his heart and thus cause him to distance himself from this Aqeedah in one of his acts… So how can he remain a Muslim when he does an action contrary to the Islamic Aqeedah? If a Muslim makes Takfeer (considers him a Kafir) of his Muslim brother, wouldn’t that then make the description befallen one of them, and his enunciation here is Kufr? I know that actions include words or

Announcing Two Occasions: Ramadan & Launch of Al Waqiyah TV

Announcing Two Occasions: The Beginning of the Blessed Month of Ramadan, and the Launch of Al Waqiyah Television Channel I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Shaytan شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِيَ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَى وَالْفُرْقَانِ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ الشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَى سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ يُرِيدُ اللّهُ بِكُمُ الْيُسْرَ وَلاَ يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ الْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُواْ الْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُواْ اللّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ “The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided y
