Bismillah hir Rahmaan al Raheem
The Prophet Muhammed (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) mentioned:
The one who has not thanked the people has not thanked Allah. (Tirmidhee)
In light of this hadeeth I would like to thank those responsible for placing some of my talks on youtube. I ask Allah to reward them with much good in this life and the next.
I would like to remind those responsible for placing the talks on youtube, that the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has warned us of photos (of living things, i.e, humans, animals, etc). He said
Those whom will receive the severest punishment of the Day of Judgement are the ones who took photos. (Bukhari:5950)
It is because of this hadeeth, that I request those responsible for placing some of my lectures on youtube, to remove the photos of human/living things, and replace them with photos of oceans, trees, mountains, etc. Insha Allah, this will be more pleasing to Allah.
As for the fact that some individuals or groups have begun to use pictures and videos for the purpose of da’wah, I have consulted with many of the scholars and they have mentioned that this should not be done, due to the major punishments which have been mentioned in many statements of the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
Baraka Allahu feekum wa Jazakum Allahu khiran
Your Brother in Islam,
