Ibn Baṭṭah, Al-Ibānatu Al-Kubrā ḥadīth 25, and others.
It is reported that ʿAdī b. Ḥātim – Allāh be pleased with him – said:
You will remain upon good as long as you do not start approving of what you used to repudiate and as long as you do not repudiate what you used to know (to be right), and as long as your scholar can speak amongst you without fear. … More WISE SAYINGS OF THE SALAF – ON FITNAH – CALAMITIES & TRIBULATIONS – RIGHTEOUS PREDECESSOR SPEECH
It is reported that Sufyān b. ‘Uyainah – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

It is reported that ‘Umar b. Al-Khattāb – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

“I used not to take food with satisfaction for the last 16 years, as a full stomach makes the body heavy, makes the heart hard, increases sleep and renders a man lazy for Worship”
Imam Shafi’e seems to have inherited this qualification of being eloquent like Ali Ibn Abu Talib, so beautifully that a companion of his, Haroon Ibn Saeed said, that when Imam Shafi’e spoke and wanted to make a point, he was so convincing that if he had told the people that a stone was a stick, they would have accepted it as the truth. … More IMAM SHAFI’E – HIS LIFE AND DEATH – MINI BIOGRAPHY – SHAFI’E MADHHAB
ʿUmar will come with blood flowing from his veins. It will be asked ‘Who did this to you?’ To which he will reply, ‘ʿAbd al-Mughīrah ibn Shuʿbah.’ He will stand in front of Allah and will have a swift and easy reckoning. Then he will be made to stand in front of the Throne, draped in two green garments. Then ʿUthmān will come with blood dripping from his veins. It will be asked, ‘Who did this to you?’ To which he will reply; ‘So and so.’ … More IMAM JAFAR AL-SADIQ – THE SUNNI IMAM ?? – DEBATE AGAINST A RAFIDHI SHIA – DID THE SHIA IMAMS REJECT TASHAYYU?
When the people become immoral with no shame, like donkeys who mate in the street.
“There will be in the end of my nation men who ride chariots (Literally Boxes With Wheels – Cars??) who are [in reality] pseudo-men; they will drop off their women, at the gates of the mosques, who are clothed [and yet] naked. Upon their heads will be the likes of a lean camel’s hump.” … More THE PREDICTION OF IMMORALITY BY PROPHET MUHAMMAD ﷺ – “LIKE DONKEYS WHO MATE IN THE STREET” – CAMEL HUMP HIJAB
The people said (to Umar), “O chief of the believers! Appoint a successor.” Umar said, “I do not find anyone more suitable for the job than the following persons or group whom Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) had been pleased with before he died.”
Then Umar mentioned: “Ali, Uthman, AzZubair, Talha, Sad and Abdur-Rahman (bin Auf)”
Then Umar said, “Abdullah bin Umar will be a witness to you, but he will have no share in the rule. His being a witness will compensate him for not sharing the right of ruling. If Sad becomes the ruler, it will be alright: otherwise, whoever becomes the ruler should seek his help, as I have not dismissed him because of disability or dishonesty.” … More THE STABBING AND DEATH OF UMAR IBN AL KHATTAB – THE THIRD CALIPH IS CHOSEN – ALI IBN ABU TALIB & AHL AL BAYT GIVE BAY’AH TO UMAR
A sheep or goat is used as a single offering and is sufficient for one household;
Abu Ayyoob al Ansaree (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), a man would sacrifice a sheep on behalf of himself and the members of his household, and they would eat from it and give some to others.” (Reported by Ibn Maajah and al-Tirmidhi, who classed it as saheeh) … More EID AL-ADHA SACRIFICE – FIQH OF SLAUGHTER – HOW DO I DO THE ADHA RITES – DIVISION OF MEAT – KURBAN – QURBAN – UDHIYA

We live in a world where non Muslims and the western media are judging almost 15 centuries of Islam, Allah and His Messenger, by a few incidents done by the most extreme of the most extreme, we are literally talking about less that 0.1% of a population that numbers almost 2 billion people.
Of course the media and the main anti-Muslim protagonists will not speak about the magnificent contributions Islam had to modern day technology, towards law, linguistics, mathematics, architecture, geo-politics, war conditions, rules and treatises. There is not a word about how Muslims came all the way up to spain to protect a Jewish population that was being wiped out and discriminated against by the ruling monarchy. Yes, you read that correctly, Muslims went to Spain to save the Jews living there, from persecution and terrorism, 1000 years before Hitler and the Gestapo of the Nazi State.
All we hear about is a handful of people who broke a pact, but the question is, what does Islam say about the Civilian population in times of war. It is clear that the “peace protecting” West, considers Muslim civilians as collateral damage, when a smart bomb hits a civilian village, maiming and killing dozens of people, hundreds of times over and over again, we realise that people really are expendable to the defender of the world.
However, in Islam, they are not expendable….. … More THE FIQH OF CAPTIVES AND NON COMBATANTS IN ISLAM – THE ORDERED PROTECTION OF CIVILIANS – SO WHY ARE CIVILIANS GETTING KILLED?
