ﻓﻀﻴﻠﺔ ﺍﻟﺸﻴﺦ ﺍﻟﻌﻼﻣﺔ ﻣﺤﻤﺪ ﺑﻦ ﺻﺎﻟﺢ ﺍﻟﻌﺜﻴﻤﻴﻦ – ﺭﺣﻤﻪ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ : إﻥ ﻓﻲ ﻧﺸﺮﻙ ﻟﻠﻌﻠﻢ ﻧﺸﺮﺍً ﻟﺪﻳﻦ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ، ﻓﺘﻜﻮﻥ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﻤﺠﺎﻫﺪﻳﻦ ﻓﻲ ﺳﺒﻴﻞ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ.
Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn: “Indeed for you to spread the knowledge is to spread the Deen of Allāh, so you ARE from the MUJĀHIDEEN in the path of Allāh (if He Wills).”
● [شرح دعاء القنوت]
“Oh Muslim Woman, indeed Allaah has created you in the best form.
He provided you with the intellect, senses, and limbs, by which you have the ability to fulfill that which is obligatory upon you to fulfill and abandon that which you have been prohibited from, from every statement and action which calamity will befall.
He (Allaah) has obligated upon you to attain understanding of the religion in order for you to establish that which Allaah has made you responsible for,
– in a manner that Allaah wants,
– the Lord of the Creation,
– as well as being upon the methodology that the most noble of the Prophets,
– the master of the Messengers came with,
– beginning with “Al-Fiqh Al-Akbar” and
– it is the Tawheed of The Lord of The Creation.”
Shaykh Zayd Al-Madkhalee (may Allaah preserve him). Source: Ar-Risaalatul Qayyimah lil Mar-ah al-Muslimah pg. 22
Something you might notice is the fact that pious people never let an opportunity to call towards Allah pass by.
One only has to read the Qur’aan to hear about how Yusuf alayhi salam called towards tawheed and Islaam whilst being in prison.
And similarly as muslims we should make the most of every chance we get and call towards Allah, even if its on the bus or at univeristy etc.
And this is Maalik bin Dinaar from the salaf who sees the opportunity to call towards Allah and he does not hesitate even one second.
It is said that a burgler entered the Imaams house but he didn’t find anything to steal. So Maalik [saw the burgler] and called him towards him and said, you did not find anything with regards to the dunyah, how about something from the aakhirah? So the burgler replied yes [I am interested].
So the Imaam instructed him to make wudhu and pray two units of prayer so he did that. Then he sat down [for awhile] and then he went to the masjid. So the Imaam was asked [when people saw this man with him] Who is this person? He replied, he came to rob but we robbed him!

This is better .. ❤
It was said to Imam Ahmad,
“Is the man who fasts, prays, and performs i’tikaf more beloved to you, or the one who speaks out concerning the people of innovation (bid’ah)?”
He said, “If this person fasts, prays, and performs i’tikaf, then this only benefits him. However, if he speaks out concerning the people of innovation (bid’ah), then this benefits the Muslims, and this is better.”
(Majmu Fatawa 27/231)
