“They said that it is a detested act amongst people that I wore a turban, embroidered on it is the blessed sandal.

I answered them, with tears shimmering in my eyes:
“The blessed sandal of the Prophet ﷺ is above all heads!”
If I wanted to, I would place it in my heart,
And ransom it with my soul and breaths!

I am a lover, yearning to kiss its dust,
And the heart is hardened by separation from its desire.
Therefore with this image of the blessed noble sandal,
The inner heart is delighted and my senses are quenched.

By Allāh, who is like him who is of the highest of statures?
He is chosen with proximity and intimacy.
And on the carpet of intimacy in his loftiness,
He gained closeness as he rose through the circles.

When the blessed sandal is elevated beyond our skies,
It rose like pearls or diamonds.
For that reason, when we place the blessed sandal upon our heads,
We are truly placing a crown upon them.

O the crown of this cosmos, O its Sulṭān
Your Lord has elevated you above all humankind.”
— Shaykh Dr. Muḥammad Ibrāhīm al ʿAshmāwī al Azharī ḥafidhahuLlāh

“«Dan digalakkan untuk bersiwak dalam setiap masa», seperti yang dikatakan oleh al Rāfiʿī, tatkala ṣalāt dan selainnya kerana keṣaḥīḥan ḥadīth² berkenaan penggalakan (istiḥbāb) [bersiwak] pada setiap waktu.”
— Shaykh Ṭāhā ʿAbd al Ḥamīd Ḥamādī ḥafidhahuLlāh, Fatḥ al Wahhāb al Mālik

“Dan digalakkan untuk bersiwak pada waktu selain waktu² ini (iaitu waktu ketika berwuḍūʿ) sepertimana telah kami bicarakan sebelum ini di dalam muqaddimah. Dan yang menandakannya..
...adalah apa yang diriwayatkan di dalam dua Ṣaḥīḥ bahawasanya apabila dia ﷺ ingin berdiri [untuk ṣalāt] pada waktu malam, dia mensiwakkan mulutnya.

Dari Abī Dāwūd: Dia ﷺ tidak bangun dari tidurnya pada waktu pagi ataupun malam melainkan dia bersiwak sebelum berwuḍūʿ.

The Month of Shaʿbān: the Month of Sending Prayers upon the Prophet ﷺ
“From the excellences of the month of Shaʿbān: it is the month when the verse of sending prayers and peace upon the Emissary of Allāh ﷺ is sent down, which is His Words: “Indeed, God and His angels send prayers upon the Prophet. O you who believe! Send prayers upon...
...[the Prophet,] and salute him with a worthy salutation of peace!” [33:56]

It is mentioned by Ibn Abī ‘ṣ-Ṣayf al Yamanī who said: Verily, the month of Shaʿbān is the month of sending prayers upon the Prophet ﷺ as its verse was sent down in it [al Fishnī, Tuḥfat al Ikhwān]

to say that the books of faḍāʾil are filled with fabrication without actually going through them is dishonesty because Mawlānā Zakariyyā al Kandahlawī added takhrīj for every single ḥadīth that he placed in those books.
there’s no denying that yes, some of the ḥadīths in them might be considered by a ḥadīth scholar as mawḍūʿ, but it is possible that it is considered as ḍaʿīf or even ḥasan by another due to the differences in their methodology.
ḥadīths can have varying gradings, and that’s true for every one of them; even those in Ṣaḥīḥ al Bukhārī where Imām al Dāraquṭnī did criticise some of them (though his arguments are considered weak).

and we need to put in mind as well that ḍaʿīf ≠ mawḍūʿ.

simply because they’re using the musical “maqams” of the Celts, automatically they’re following the Christians? even outside of the Christian realm, poetry and songs are recited this way in the Anglosphere.

Islām isn’t monotonous, people. ʿurf has a role as well in our religion.
here’s a madīḥ of our Beloved ﷺ in German.

“You said you were interested and keen to read the books of the gnostic Ṣūfī Shaykh, Muḥyi ‘d-Dīn Muḥammad ibn ʿAlī ibn ʿArabī and that you found problematic his interpretation of the meaning of the quoted hadith about the length of the period of the Dajjāl,...
...and that you feared, because you found it problematic, that it may have been interpolated in the Shaykh's writings.

Know that there are many problematic matters in the Shaykh’s books, particularly in the ‘Fuṣūṣ’ and the ‘Futūḥāt’...
These may have been either added to the Shaykh’s writings, or produced by him when overpowered by a spiritual state and under the overwhelming power of a higher reality. It would then be the kind of divinely inspired statement (shath) which, in those who are overwhelmed,...
