Al-Junun: Mental Illness In The Islamic World
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: If a woman is one of the people of Paradise and she did not get married in this world, or she got married but her husband does not enter Paradise, who will she be with?He answered:“The answer is based on the general meaning of the verses in which Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask” [Fussilat 41:31] and “(there will be) therein all that inner-selves could desire, and all that eyes could delight in and you will abide therein forever” [al-Zukhruf 43:71].So if a woman is one of the people of Paradise and she did not get married, or if her husband is not one of the people of Paradise, when she enters Paradise there will be men who did not get married, and those men will have wives from among the hur al-‘iyn and wives from among the people of this world if they wish. Similarly with regard to the woman who did not have a husband, or who had a husband in this world but he did not enter Paradise with her, if she wants to get married then she will inevitably have what she desires, because of the general meaning of these verses.”From Majmoo’ Fataawa Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 2/52.
They Call Themselves: ‘Followers of as-Salaf as-Saalih’
The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “The best of mankind is my generation, then those who follow them, then those who follow them…” [Saheeh al-Bukhari (2652) and Saheeh Muslim (2533)]
Ibn Mas’ud (radiallaahu anhu) said: “Whosoever amongst you wants to follow an example, then let him follow the example of the Sahaabah of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam); they were the most pious-hearted; the most deep-rooted in knowledge; the least pretentious; the most consistent in guidance; they had the best of affairs; and they are the people whom Allah chose to accompany His Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) and establish His Deen. So know their virtue and follow them in their athar (i.e., statements and actions) for they were upon the right guidance.”
Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful amongst themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate…[Quran 48:29]
Shaykh Saleh ibn Abdul-Aziz ibn Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Aal-Shaykh (hafidhahullah) wrote in his book ‘Hadhihi Mafahimuna’:
“…in every region of the world, where you find grave-worshipers, you will most probably find a group following the guidance of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), who are neither deceived nor affected by doubts – they are the Ghuraba (strangers) in many lands, guiding the people to the Sunnah, and guiding them to the Tawheed, and turning the hearts to Allah, to fearing and revering Him, to hope for what is with Him, attaching the hearts to their Creator Alone, and not to any of the creation.They do not love, except for Allah, and they do not hate, except for Allah, and they do not worship except for Him. Their concern is calling the people to the Tawheed of their Rabb in the actions; actions of the heart and actions of the limbs.
They call themselves: ‘Followers of as-Salaf as-Saalih’. He is honored, who follows them (i.e., as-Salaf as-Saalih) contrary to the one, who is disgraced because of his following al-Khalaf at-Taleh (i.e., the evil Khalaf).
Their enemies call them…’Wahhabis’ or ‘Extremists’…”
