What is your advice for an individual who has just begun to practice Islam?

Answer by Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saleh al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah):

My advice to this new practicing individual is:

1- He should constantly ask Allaah to make him firm.

2 – He should increase in recitation of The Qur`an with contemplation. This is because recitation has a major (positive) effect on the heart, especially when coupled with contemplation and reflection.

3 – He should be diligent in being obedient to Allaah, and he should not become bored or lazy. This is because The Messenger (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) sought refuge from inability and laziness.

4 – He should be diligent in befriending good companions, and distance himself from evil companions.

5 – He should also advise himself when he finds himself thinking: Time is extremely lengthy and the path is too long! At this point, he should advise himself and remain firm. This is because Jannah (paradise) is surrounded with trials and difficulties, while the The Hell-fire is surrounded with desires.

6 – He should distance himself from bad companions even if they (those companions) are individuals he knew in the past. This is due to the fact that evil/bad companions influence an individual. Because of this, the Messenger (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: The example of a bad companion is the example of a black smith; either he burns your clothing, or you experience from him a disgusting odor. (Bukhari: 5534, Muslim: 2628)

Advise for a person who is new (embraced islaam) and is present amongst us

Q.​The individual is asking for advice for a person who is new (embraced islaam) and is present amongst us.

A.​The shaykh said I greet this individual; I give him a warm welcome. For this individual who has entered Islaam, it is for him to know that he has done something tremendous as the Prophet Sallaahu Alayhi wa sallam mentioned ‘There is no Jew or Christian that hears about me and dies without believing in me except that he will enter into the hell fire’. So no doubt this individual has done something tremendous.

I advise this individual to be consistent in his prayers, in his five daily prayers & he should perform his prayers at their legislated times. I also advise this individual to learn that which he will use to worship Allaah, in terms of recitation of Qur’aan, in terms of supplications he should say. The most important part of the Qur’aan for him to learn at this time is Suratul Faatihaa. He should learn the proper pronunciation of the opening chapter of the Qur’aan. He should try to learn this from an individual who can teach him. Likewise he should also try his best to learn the meaning of the opening chapter of the Qur’aan… What does all Praise be to Allaah mean? What does Lord of the World mean? What does the Most Merciful mean? So that when he reads the Qur’aan he has an understanding of it. Likewise when he reads the Qur’aan, when he reads the verses he will have a reverence of Allaah azza wa ja’al. The shaykh said I ask Allaah azza wa ja’al to bless this individual and to give him success & likewise those who are present, he who is speaking (shaykh himself) and those that are listening. We ask Allaah azza wa ja’al to bring us closer to Him and to distance us from that which does not please Him.

Shaykh Muhammed Saleh Al Luhaydaan (Kitaab-ut-Tawheed Class 01.12.12) Riyadh.

What is required of a new Muslim between the period he embraces and openly announces his religion?

Question:

Between the period he embraces Islaam and [openly] announces his [embracing of] Islaam, is the new Muslim required to perform the obligatory acts as required of [all] Muslims?

Response:

All Praise be to Allaah alone, and may the prayers and salutations be upon His Messenger and his companions; To proceed:

When a person embraces Islaam, then [as a Muslim] – according to his ability – he is [now] required to gradually learn that which is required of him – as legislated. He is [then] required to act accordingly, and that is from the date he embraced Islaam.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

Why is our religion called “Islaam”?

Answer:

Because one who enters it submits (Aslama) himself to Allaah, and he surrenders to (Istislam), and abides by, all of the judgements that come from Allaah and from His Messenger Salallaahu alayhi wasallam. Allaah Almighty said:

وَمَن يَرْغَبُ عَن مِّلَّةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِلاَّ مَن سَفِهَ نَفْسَهُ

And who turns away from the religion of Ibraheem except him who fools himself?[Baqarah 2:130]

He also said:

إِذْ قَالَ لَهُ رَبُّهُ أَسْلِمْ قَالَ أَسْلَمْتُ لِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

When His Lord said to him, “Submit (i.e. be a Muslim)!” He said, “I have submitted myself (as a Muslim) to the Lord of all that exists.” [Baqarah 2:131]

And

مَنْ أَسْلَمَ وَجْهَهُ لِلّهِ وَهُوَ مُحْسِنٌ فَلَهُ أَجْرُهُ عِندَ رَبِّهِ

But whoever submits his face (himself) to Allaah and he is a good-doer then his reward is with his Lord [Baqarah 2:112]
