Leaving Something for the Sake of Allaah

March 6, 2014 § 1 Comment

The beloved Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen rahimahullaah, said in his explanation of the hadeeth of Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqaas radhiAllaahu anh (#6) in Riyaadh as-Saaliheen by Abu Zakariyyah an-Nawawee rahimahullaah:

..The second affair: That no one from amongst them would return to Makkah after they had left it migrating to Allaah and His Messenger. Because if you leave a land migrating to Allaah and His Messenger (salAllaahu alayhi wasallam) then it is like the wealth that you gave in charity, it is not possible that you can take it back.

And in a similar fashion, everything that the person leaves for the sake of Allaah, then it is not possible that they return to it.

And with this; many of the people have been given success to remove the televisions from their homes thus making repentance to Allaah and placing themselves far away from it and the evil that it contains; so they say, ‘is it now possible for us to return the television to our homes?’ We say, no; after you have removed it for the sake of Allaah do not return it.

Because if the person abandons something for the sake of Allaah and makes hijrah from something for the sake of Allaah, he does not return to it.

And for this reason the Messenger ( alayhi as-salaatu wasallam) asked his Lord to allow his companions to continue in their hijrah.

والأمر الثاني: أن لا يرجع أحدهم منهم إلى مكة بعد أن خرج منها؛ مهاجراً إلى الله ورسوله.
لأنك إذا خرجت من البلد مهاجراً إلى الله ورسوله؛ فهو كالمال الذي تتصدق به. يكون البلد مثل المال الذي تتصدق به لا يمكن أن ترجع فيه.

وهكذا كل شيء تركه الإنسان لله لا يرجع فيه.

ومن ذلك: ما وُفِّق فيه كثير من الناس من إخراج التليفزيون من بيوتهم؛ توبة إلى الله، وابتعاداً عنه، وعما فيه من الشرور. فهؤلاء قالوا هل يمكن أن نعيده الآن إلى البيت؟

نقول: لا، بعد أن أخرجتموه لله لا تعيدوه ؛ لأن الإنسان إذا ترك شيئاً لله، وهجر شيئاً لله، فلا يعود فيه. ولهذا سأل النبي – عليه الصلاة والسلام – ربه أن يُمضي لأصحابه هجرتهم.
