The Wisdom in Seeking Refuge from the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) At All Times June 20, 2008

The Messenger of Allah used to end his prayer with the following du’a’:

“O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the punishment of the grave, and from the afflictions of the Anti-Christ, and from the afflictions of life and death.”

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said:

“…and since the claim to lordship of the Anti-Christ is impossible in and of itself, and none of the miracles that he will perform will be sufficient proof of his truthfulness – rather, it will be a test and a trial with which Allah misguides whom He Wills and Guides whom He Wills, such as the test of the Golden Calf with the Children of Israel – it will nevertheless be the greatest trial, and the implications of this trial is not limited to those who are present to witness him personally. Rather, the reality of his trial is the falsehood that is at odds with the Divine Law (Shari’ah), backed up by apparent miracles. So, whoever goes along with that which is in opposition to the Shari’ah because of his amazement at some supposed miracle, then he has been afflicted by this trial, and this is widespread in every era and every place. The trial of the Anti-Christ in particular is the severest of trials, so, if Allah protects His servant from it – whether he witnesses it personally or not – then he will be protected from what is less than it of trials (fitan).”

[‘as-Sab’iniyyah’; p. 483]

Shaykh ‘Abd ar-Rahman bin Nasir as-Sa’di said:

“…and the reference to the trial of the Anti-Christ is simply a reference to a type of trial, so the servant should seek refuge from every trial which is similar to his, and they are the trials of falsehood and doubts and “miracles” that misguide many people, such as the fitnah of disbelief, as well as that of the materialists, who have deluded many people with what they have seen of their powerful technological inventions, wonderous advancements, etc., until they thought them to be upon the Truth. And, in reality, this glimmering materialistic pompousness of theirs is beautified on the outside, while its inner core is nothing but ruin and wreckage. So, to seek refuge from the trial of the Anti-Christ encompasses these types of trials.

So, in reality, everyone is in need of the protection of Allah from the trial of the Masih ad-Dajjal in every time and in every place.”

[‘Majmu’ al-Fawa’id wa Iqtinas al-Awabid’; p. 217]

And is one who was dead and We gave him life and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one who is in darkness, never to emerge therefrom? Thus it has been made pleasing to the disbelievers that which they were doing.

It was said to al-Hasan al-Basri: Would not any one of us feel ashamed before his Lord to seek forgiveness from his sin then go back to it, then seek forgiveness then go back to it?

He said: The Shaytaan would like you to feel that way; never give up seeking forgiveness.

لسانك لا تذكر به عورة امرئ *** فكلّـك عورات وللناس ألسـن

وعينك إن أبدت إليك معايباً *** فدعها وقل : يا عين للناس أعينُ

Let not your tongue mention the shame of another
For you yourself are covered in shame and all men have tongues.
If your eye falls upon the sins of your brother
Shield them and say: “O my eye! All men have eyes!”

this class is only one weekend, and it’s supposed to be basic, something everyone can enjoy. bring anyone to enjoy a weekend into the 40 hadith of imam an-nawawi.

many people of the past have written 40 hadith booklets. anyone can write a 40 hadith book, even you can. but why is it that whenever u mention 40 hadith, you automatically think of imam an-nawawi? Allah’s tawfiq allowed his work to be blessed and now many of us have his work in our houses.

What if, after just one weekend, you could feel your shoulders straighten, the air of confidence lifting you higher?

What if, after just one weekend, you could feel the joy of having a crucial understanding of all the main concepts of your faith?

What if, after just one weekend, you could have a comprehensive awareness of the one compilation of hadeeth that could potentially address every religious matter you’ll ever want or need to talk about?

It is narrated on the authority of ‘Umar bin al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, say:

“Actions are (judged) by intentions so each man will have what he intended. [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

If, as Imam al-Shafee has said, “This particular hadeeth is one third of the knowledge of Islam; related to about 70 topics of Fiqh,” –we ask: “What then about the other 39?”

AlMaghrib Institute is Overjoyed to Bring You:
Sacred Scrolls: 40 Hadeeth Nawawi
A single weekend degree seminar

Lessons from the timeless collection of hadith compiled by Imam AlNawawi

A weekend long seminar taught by two Powerhouse AlMaghrib Instructors:
