Are you suggest some of those speakers you described?

i wasnt really expecting these questions when i made that post lol i was trying to get people to try and set a standard when it comes to people they listen too, but here are some off the top of my head 

  1. Sheikh Muhammad Mukhtar ash Shanqiti (rahimahullah)
  2. Sheikh Ibn Al Uthaimeen (rahimahullah)
  3. sheikh Abdelhamid Kishk (rahimahullah) 
  4. Sheikh salah Al Maghamsi (these first 4 are pretty amazing guys, when they speak, its like it goes directly to your heart because of their sincerity mashaAllah)
  5. Sheikh Ahmed musa Jibril (some people hate on him but i’ve not seen any good basis for their hate, hes an amazing guy as far as i know and his tawheed lessons are really beneficial, in fact all of his talks are mashaAllah)
  6. Sheikh Muhammad Tim Humble (he actually inspired that post, i had the pleasure of spending a day with him last week and and almost everything he said could be backed from the Qur’an, hes an amazing guy mashaAllah)
  7. Sheikh Abu eesa (More of a controversial option because people hate on him because of his jokiness online and some things he said (but most of the stuff going around online were just lies and slander), but as someone who knows him personally and who studies under him, i can definitely say that I believe hes a reliable source of knowledge)

tbh the list of reliable guys is many, and just because they are reliable doesnt mean that everything they say is correct, they can make mistakes like everyone else, however there are different levels of mistakes, like they wont make a mistake promoting bidah or shirk for example but they might make a fiqh mistake here and there 

But what people need to be more aware of his dodgy speakers, guys who give you sometimes 90% good information but then add 10% of their bidah or something to the mix. We must also remember that our allegiance is primarily to Allah and his messenger (saw) and not to these speakers, we stand by them as long as they stick the Qur’an and sunnah, but when they abandon that (like they translate some book with shirk in it, or start to claim that you can make dua to the dead or they promote a bidah etc other weird beliefs) then i would leave them too, because we should be careful of who we learn from and listen too.

I judge speakers by how much their speach is based upon the Quran and sunnah. If what they say is in line with the Quran and the authentic sunnah (that I know) then I continue to listen. But if they continually contradict it and it is mainly filled with opinions (and sometimes fancy speach) then I avoid them.
Generally, you’ll find that the speach of people of sunnah has evidence to constantly back everything they say, to the point where its almost as if they are constantly quoting it and giving brief explanations in between. And when I find people like that, I automatically love the person and their talks

yeah i know, i just made that post because ive also read the other opinion so i thought its better to go with the more strict opinion because it means encouraging people to fast an extra day if they are able to and theres also no doubt in its correctness 

Abdullah bin Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,
“Never a Prophet had been sent before me by Allah to his people but he had, among his people, (his) disciples and companions, who followed his ways and obeyed his command. Then there came after them their successors who proclaimed what they did not practise, and practised what they were not commanded to do. And (he) who strove against them with his hand is a believer; he who strove against them with his heart is a believer; and he who strove against them with his tongue is a believer ; and beyond that there is no grain of Faith”.
sahih Muslim (Book 1, Hadith 185)
Say, “To whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth?” Say, “To Allah .” He has decreed upon Himself mercy. He will surely assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt. Those who will lose themselves [that Day] do not believe.
surah Al-An`am (6:12)

Salaam brother. On tumblr i reblogged posts of people asking for donations for abortions since they couldn't afford it and they didn't have money to raise a child or whatever reason. Now in afraid that it'll count against me as helping kill someone. I asked for forgiveness but I'm afraid that's unforgivable? Please help

Wa alaikum salam,

I apologise for the late (and brief) reply, ive just been really busy so ive hardly had time to sit down and use my laptop lately 

firstly, i cant really say if that is a sin or no

And secondly, Allah forgives all sins, as Allah says

Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”“ (39:53)

read about the forgiveness of Allah and his mercy in the Qur’an and the sunnah, you will be filled with hope and amazed at how merciful Allah is to us. So think good of Allah and never lose hope in him, your sins can never overcome the mercy of Allah
