“Some of the speech of the People of this Era hardens the hearts…” Sheikh, Dr. Raslaan

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, Most Merciful. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions. As for what follows;

Sheikh, Dr. Muhammad bin Sa’eed Raslaan[1], may Allaah preserve him, stated;

“Have you ever heard during this time we live in speech that softens the hearts, lightens the path, clarifies the correct methodology and speaks concerning the diseases of the heart and direct the people to traverse the straight path? Rather their speech hardens the hearts, dries up the tears in the eyes and causes conflict between (audio not clear). 

You don’t hear anyone -save he whom Allaah has mercy upon- connecting the (hearts) of the people of the earth to the people of the heavens, awakening the aspirations of the people to call on their Lord, the mighty and majestic; simple aspects regarding Touheed ar-Ruboobiyyah (singling Allaah out in His Lordship).

(Understanding) that Allaah does whatever He wills, that He is the Lord of the earth and heavens, controls the affairs, clarifies His signs, knowing that all good is from Him and He is the one who guides to the straight path.

Who is it that will return the people back to their Lord?! So that they’ll know as their pious predecessors before them said,

“The affair comes from there, i.e. the heavens, and not here, i.e. the earth.”

The affair comes from the heavens not the earth. Just as Al-Hasan Al-Basri, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said:

“There is no riddance except by returning to the book of Allaah and the Sunnah.”

That is by the Prophetic way with the understanding of the Sahaabah and those who followed them in goodness, they were soldiers during the day, fearful during the night. They had the softest hearts from amongst the people, the purest souls and most intelligent minds. When it came to worship they were the true worshipers, when it came to jihad they were true warriors in the path of Allaah.

Therefore weigh it; that which Allaah established them with from the comprehension of His aayaat (signs, verses, etc) and following His messenger, may peace and blessings be upon him, thus Allaah made them rulers of the dunya so much so it humbled itself to Allaah, the Lord of all that exists, His Book and the followers of His messenger, may peace and blessings be upon him.

And the latter part of this nation will never be rectified except by that which rectified the first part. Al-Yaqeen (Certainty) and following the messenger, may peace and blessings be upon him, clinging to the Book and Sunnah upon the understanding of the companions and those who followed them in goodness. 

As for embarking upon each and every path then this is something that isn’t done by one who hopes for Allaah’s reward.”
