Explanation of Riyaadus-Saaliheen

Explanation of Selected Ahaadeeth from Riyaadus-Saaliheen by Sheikh Muhammad ibn al-Uthaymeen.

In this class we continue Chapter 11: Al-Mujaahadah (Striving in the Way of Allah).  We begin with reading the first hadith brought by the sheikh:

Narrated Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, said, "Allah Almighty said, 'I have declared war on anyone who shows enmity to a wali of Mine. My slave does not draw near to Me with anything I love more than what I have made obligatory on him. And my slave continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory actions until I love him. When I love him, I become his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. If he were to ask Me for something, I would give it to him. If he were to ask Me for refuge, I would give him refuge.'" [al-Bukhari]

Wednesday's classes on the Explanation of Riyaadus-Saaliheen are held  particularly for women after salatul-asr at Masjid Tawheed in Stone  Mountain, GA. However, this is a book for us all to learn and benefit  from, and we encourage everyone to join us.
