The Prophet’s Methods Of Correcting
People’s Mistakes

Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

There are many teaching methods with different means and
aids. Correcting mistakes is one of these teaching methods
and educationalists call is the “remedial method.”
Correcting people’s mistakes is essential if teaching people
is the aim. Correcting mistakes is a divine method the
Prophet (pbuh) practiced as the Qur’an was sometimes
revealed to correct some mistakes of the Sahabah (companions
of the Prophet). The Prophet (pbuh) was divinely guided in
correcting the mistakes of people. So his methods are the
best mankind has ever known. Following the example of the
Prophet (pbuh) is therefore the best approach if one is
really keen to teach Islamic knowledge and all the other
branches of knowledge. The author has in this book compiled
many methods of the Prophet (pbuh) for teaching people and
correcting their mistakes. This book, as such, is
indispensable for everyone who is concerned with education
in general, and Islamic knowledge in particular.

Dealing with Worries and Stress

Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

It is the nature of this life that people will suffer
from worries and stress, because this world is the place of
disease, hardship and suffering. It is also the nature of
this life that people have to put with suffering and
hardship for various reasons. So people feel regret for what
has happened in the past, anxious about that may happen in
the future, and worried about what is going on in the
present. The things that cross our mind and make us feel
distressed are things in the past that have caused grief,
things in the future that we are worried about, and things
in the present which concern us.

People react differently to stress and worries, depending on
how many things are concerning them, whether the worry is
continuous or not, and on whether they have faith in their
hearts or are rebellious and sinful. We may describe
people’s hearts as being of two types: either the heart is
the throne of Allaah, filled with light, life, happiness,
joy and all the treasures of goodness; or it is the throne
of Shaytaan, wherein is distress, darkness, death, grief,
worry and anxiety.

33 Ways of developing Khushoo in
Salaah

By Sheikh Muhammed Salih
Al-Munajjid

Salaah is the greatest of the practical pillars of Islam,
and khushoo in prayer is required by shareeah. When Iblees,
the enemy of Allaah, vowed to mislead and tempt the sons of
Adam and said Then I will come to them from before them and
behind them, from their right and from their left [al-Araaf
7:17, interpretation of the meaning], one of his most
significant plots became to divert people from salaah by all
possible means and to whisper to them during their prayer so
as to deprive them of the joy of this worship and cause them
to lose the reward for it. As khushoo will be the first
thing to disappear from the earth, and we are living in the
last times, the words of Hudhayfah (may Allaah be pleased
with him) are particularly pertinent to us: The first thing
of your religion that you will lose is khushoo, and the last
thing that you will lose of your religion is salaah. There
may be a person praying who has no goodness in him, and soon
you will enter the mosque and not find anyone who has
khushoo. (al-Madaarij, 1/521).

I Want to Repent, But

By Sheikh Muhammed Salih
Al-Munajjid

based on the Noble Qur’an and the Honorable Sunnah,
quoting many verses and hadiths confirming that Allah’s
mercy and forgiveness embrace all things, and are greater
than all sins.

Weakness of Iman

Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid

The phenomenon of weak faith has become very widespread
among Muslims, and many people complain about the hardness
of their hearts. So often we hear the words, I feel hardness
in my heart, I do not find any joy in worship, I feel that
my faith has hit rock bottom, Reading Quraan does not move
me, I fall into sin so easily. The effects of this
affliction can be seen in many people, and this problem is
the cause of every disaster and adversity.

Forbidden

The Forbidden, Issues Of Great Importance That We Underestimate.
Al-Muharramat (the forbidden) are the limits of Allaah (the
Mighty and Magnificent). “These are the limits of Allaah, so
do not approach them”. . Allaah has threatened whoever
transgresses His limits and violates His sacraments stating
(Glorified be He): “And whoever disobeys Allaah and His
messenger and transgresses His limits – He will put him into
the fire to abide eternally therein, and he will have a
humilating punishment.” It is obligatory to avoid
al-muharramaat in view of the saying of the prophet: “And
whatever I forbade you, then avoid it and whatever I
enjoined upon you, then fulfill as much of it as you able.”
I ask Allaah guidance, success, and observance of His limits
for myself and for my Muslim brothers. I ak Him (Glorified
be He) to help us avoid al-muharramaat and protect us from
sins and evil deeds, Allaah is the best protector and He is
the Most Merciful (Author)

Bid’ah

By Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid. It is narrated on the authority
of the Mother of the Believers, Umm ‘Abdullah ‘Aishah,
radiyallahu ‘anha, that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu

affair of ours (i.e. into Islam) something that does not
belong to it, it is to be rejected.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

Rulings of Udhiyah Sacrifice

By: Udhiyah refers to the animal (camel, cattle or sheep) that is
sacrificed as an act of worship to Allaah, in the country in
which the person offering the sacrifice lives, during the
period from after the Eid prayer on the Day of Nahr (Eid al-Adhaa)
until the last of the Days of Tashreeq (the 13 th day of
Dhul-Hijjah), with the intention of offering sacrifice.
Udhiyah is one of the great rituals of Islam, in which we
remember the Unity of Allaah, His blessings upon us and the
obedience of our father Ibraaheem to his Lord, and in this
act of udhiyah there is much goodness and blessing. So the
Muslim must pay attention to its great importance. This book
is a brief look at this important ritual.

 

Matters Related to Fasting

by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid. Allah has blessed His slaves with
certain seasons of goodness, in which hasanat (rewards for
good deeds) are multiplied, sayyi’at (bad deeds) are
forgiven, people’s status is raised and the hearts of the
believers turn to their Lord. Those who purify themselves
attain success and those who corrupt themselves fail. One of
the greatest acts of worship is fasting, which Allah has
made obligatory to his slaves. As the status of this act of
worship is so high, it is essential to learn the Ahkam
(rulings) that have to do with the month of fasting, so that
the Muslim will know what is obligatory, in order to do it,
what is haram, in order to avoid it, and what is
permissible, so that he does not need to subject himself to
hardship by depriving himself of it. This book is a good
summary of the rulings, etiquettes, and Sunnah of fasting.

sallam. The story of Prophet Yoosuf, peace be upon him, has
a distinct, beautiful style, and neither the Jews nor the
Christians have anything like it in their books, especially
in such detail.
