Sh. Dr. Yasir Qadhi is someone that believes that one's life should be judged by more than just academic degrees and scholastic accomplishments. Friends and foe alike acknowledge that one of his main weaknesses is ice-cream, which he seems to enjoy with a rather sinister passion. The highlight of his day is twirling his little girl (a.k.a. "my little princess") round and round in the air and watching her squeal with joy. A few tid-bits from his mundane life: Sh. Yasir has a Bachelors in Hadith and a Masters in Theology from Islamic University of Madinah, and a PhD in Islamic Studies from Yale University. He is an instructor and Dean of Academic Affairs at AlMaghrib, and the Resident Scholar of the Memphis Islamic Center.

    Ramadan is over and shaytaan is back. We’ll need what ever spiritual support and advice we can get to keep up the good habits we’ve built in the past month.

    I believe the use of the words “It is AS IF they have left the religion” is not actually in the hadeeth on salaah Shaykh Yasir quotes in arabic. There is no AS IF mentioned in this hadeeth. Please correct me if i’m wrong.

      That is because he did not translate the hadeeth word for word. He instead stated the meaning of the hadeeth in English due to the differences of opinion between scholars on the issue of kufr and not praying salaah. Allahu Alam

        You’ re right about the fact that there is no AS IF in this hadeeth in Arabic, so even if ANY Sheikh mentions it in his translation, it is not going to make it right, Wallaahu A3lam

      Alhamdulillah. It seems to me if the idea were to imply abandoning salah is LIKE abandoning Islam, then the preceding statement Rasul salallahu ‘alayhi wa salaam said would instead mean: “he who upholds salah, it is AS IF he upheld Islam.”

      It’s nonsensical for one equation to be “absolute” and the main point following it be “analogous”. Interpretation of al-Qur’an and ahadith should always be as close as linguistically possible in meaning for the best understanding. Wallahu ‘alam.

      A beautiful and very profound reminder from the Sheikh none-the-less. Ma’sha’Allah.

    Shaykh Yasir, isn’t the first condition, “Alladhina Yu’minoona bil Ghaib”? In the video, it mentions “Alladhina yuqimoonas Salah”…

    JazaakumAllahu Khayran for the reminder :)
