Many people lose sight of the spiritual goal behind adopting a particular opinion – it is not to win debates or collect followers, but rather to bring one’s heart closer to Allah. Shaykh Tahir Wyatt provides a special video message containing the most important advice when approaching matters that are subject to differences of opinion.
Dr. Tahir Wyatt reminds us to call out to Allah with meaning and intention by explaining two elements mentioned in “salaatul istikhaarah”: being steadfast on Islam, and having firm resolve to be rightly guided.
Shaykh Tahir reminds us the importance of dua and reminds us of a specific dua that is mentioned in a hadith. The dua seeks protection from cowardice, stinginess, temptations of the dunya, and the punishment of the grave.
The Muslim has to guard his tongue and avoid things that have been forbidden. Among these forbidden things which people often take lightly are gheebah (backbiting), buhtan (slander) and nameemah (malicious gossip).
