Review:

Although this lecture was given many years ago [cassette], it is something very important for sisters to reflect upon. So that she is solidified upon the path of Qur’aan and Sunnah, knowing the proofs, knowing the evidences, understanding qawaa’id (principles), not merely upon association (i.e “I’m Salafee because my husband is Salafee”), because if those individuals shift in their ideas and principles, will the Muslim sister shift with it automatically? If her friends go somewhere else, does she follow them? Or does she have religious principles that guide her and help her maintain upon the haqq? If her marriage fails, does her salafiyyah end? This is an important discussion given that it is commonplace that she may ascribes herself to Salafiyyah simply due to the disposition of her family or relatives, but without principles, knowledge and understanding, this association can change overnight. The blessed methodology of the salaf is a path to following the pristine Qur’aan and Sunnah upon the understanding of the Companions and those who followed them in righteousness, it is a path to salvation, clarity upon the sunnah, being far away from innovation and hizbiyyah – it should not be treated lightly but rather it should be given the utmost importance.



From the topics discussed:

•    The importance of seeking knowledge (for sisters).
•    The danger of peer-pressure
•    Liberation or degradation – the effect of media upon the Muslim woman
•    Love the people of Sunnah!
•    The importance of accompanying those who seek knowledge
•    Salafiyyah via marriage only?
•    Be thankful for Allaah guiding you in a world of darkness, to the truth and the people of truth
