Shaykh Allahmah Ibn Fawzaan Al-fawzaan (Hafizahullah) was asked with regards to one giving some of his children some gifts and not giving others.

He answered:
As for giving your children anything of wealth, or anything that is seen as a gift, it is compulsory that there should be equality among all the children. It is not permissible to honor part of your children over others, or select some with gifts and deny the others.
This can be seen clearly from the Hadith of the Prophet SallAllahu Alayhi Wasallam, Where he said:

"Fear Allah, and be just among your children."

However, if what you decide to give your children is borne out of individual needs or necessities (one wants to buy this, another
wants something else from what they need in their daily lives), then no doubt that the needs of an elder son would differ from the needs of a younger one or an infant (this one wants to buy a Kaftan to wear, and what another needs is a diapers), then each one would be given what
he or she needs at that material time and they won't be the same. But for a gift, or giving one ownership of a certain asset, equalisation between all your children is compulsory. (For instance you want to give a car to one, you must give it to all. Or you want to give a plot of
land to one, you must give it to all. Unless if you give the car or the house to one for usage while the ownership is still retained by you the father). Else, you have to give all your children that same property or asset, and there is no difference between a male & female child.
The principle of a male child receives double of a female child (as in the distribution of inheritance) doesn't apply here, because it is just a gift. You will give a female child of yours the same even if she is married and living with her husband what you give your male child
even if he is living with you, we long as it is a major gift or ownership of an asset.

This is the justice system in Islam.

Shaykh Ibn Fawzaan (Hafizahullah):

Allah (SWT) has cautioned those that are negligent of their Salaat with severe punishment. Allah says:

"So, woe unto those performers of Salaat (hypocrites), those that delay their
Salaat from its fixed times."

Allah referred to them as Musalleen (performers of Salaat); because they have performed the Salaat in what appears to us, but then they are in their Salaat "Saahoon" (negligent).

Negligent in establishing the salat with the fear of Allah.
Negligent of establishing the salat at its appointed time.

Negligent of consciousness & bringing their heart attendant to the salat.

Thus, (the salat is incomplete) and Allah promised to punish such type of people with severe punishment, although they have perform salaat.,

For those that have been following the case, the said Rev. has been in remand in Kaduna prison & awaits court judgement.
For those that can remember, Sadiya IDRIS, 12 year old girl missing for 7 years was abducted from TUDUN WADA by one Peter, & was handed over to Rev. Jonah, who smuggled her to Plateau state, where she was enrolled in a missionary school & her name changed to CHRISTIANA JONAH.
We appreciate the efforts of the @PoliceNG Kaduna Command & the Govt of Kaduna state for intervening & ensuring that this criminal reverend was apprehended. The modus operandi of the abduction sends a serious signal that such has been ongoing for a very long time.

Imaam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) wrote:

Avoid those ways that will necessitate the torment of the grave. One of the most beneficial means is that a man should sit for a while for Allah's sake
when he intends to sleep and call his soul to account over his gains and losses during the day. Then he should renew his sincere repentance between him and his Lord and sleep in that state of repentance.

He should make a firm resolve not to go back to committing the sin of he
wakes up. He should do this every night. So if he dies during that nighttime, then he would have died in the state of repentance, and if he wakes up, he will wake up to face his action happily due to the postponement of his term until he

THE POSITION OF ISLAM ON CRYPTOCURRENCY & FOREX TRADING by our Shaykh, Dr. Bashir Aliyu (May Allah preserve him).

The rulings with regard to Crytocurrency (Bitcoin, Infireum, CMDX & so on) is the same as Forex in Islam, in that certain conditions have to be fulfiled before it
can be permissible in Islam. For anyone who wants to deal in this type of transaction, when you want to buy or sell, it has to be hand to hand exchange. You pay at the time, and you receive at same time, without delay. It is also not permissible to say you will buy that
of, say the month of October, (now that we are in September), so that you purchase now, make the payment in September inorder to present your option in October to receive at that time. Again, this violates the principle of hand to hand. Also, leverage is not allowed.

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan wrote:

"...Therefore, it obligatory upon whoever knows the truth to explain it to the people and not to exchange it for a small (or big) price by concealing it in other to attain any worldly gains or for
the sake of pleasing the people. Allaah has more right that one should fear and seek His pleasure. So it is not permissible to conceal the truth for one who has the ability to explain it and make it manifest. As for one who does not have the ability to do so or he fears
that a greater fitnah may occur by explaining the truth, such a person is excused. However, whoever does not have a barrier in explaining the truth but conceals the truth for the sake of his interest & wellbeing, such a person is cursed by Allaah & cursed by those who curse. This

Afflictions & Calamities Are Your Way to Great Goals 💪

If Allah (SWT) wishes that His servant achieves great goals, it is one of Allah's practices that there will be TESTS to facilitate the means to the goals; these include afflictions, misfortunes and
teething troubles. Thus, his realization of these goals thereafter is comparable to the attainment of Paradise by the people of Paradise after death, worries of barzakh, resurrection, standing on the plain of resurrection, accountability, Siraat Bridge and enduring those frights
and hardships. This is exactly as He admitted His Messenger into Makkah, which was a great entry after the disbelievers had expelled him from there; He reinforced him with a massive support after he suffered what he suffered in the hands of the enemies of Allah.
