These two hadeeth are only short so have been grouped into a single lesson. Please read the Explanation of Nawawi's 40 Hadeeths by Shyakh Al-Uthaymeen, available in English. If you are not memorising the hadeeths, then you might wish to skip the first two questions. This is the last quiz in this block of four; next lesson is revision inshaa Allaah.

    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The best definition of taqwaa is: To be protected from the punishment of Allaah by

    • A.

      Calling on the Prophet sall Allaahu alaihi wa sallam for help

    • B.

      Hoping for Allaah’s Extensive Mercy

    • C.

      Doing the things Allaah commanded and staying away from the things He prohibited

    Correct Answer
    C. Doing the things Allaah commanded and staying away from the things He prohibited
    Explanation
    Taqwaa refers to the concept of being mindful and conscious of Allah's commands and prohibitions. It involves actively obeying what Allah has ordered and refraining from what He has forbidden. By doing so, one seeks protection from the punishment of Allah and strives to maintain a righteous and pious lifestyle. Calling on the Prophet for help and hoping for Allah's mercy are not the primary components of taqwaa, although they may be part of a person's overall relationship with Allah.

      Permissible (mubaah)

    • D.

      Disliked (makrooh)

    • E.

      Prohibited (haraam)

    Correct Answer
    A. Obligatory (waajib)
    Explanation
    Having taqwaa of Allaah (God-consciousness) in both public and private is obligatory (waajib) because it is a fundamental aspect of being a believer. Taqwaa entails being aware of Allah's presence at all times and striving to avoid anything that displeases Him. It involves following His commandments and abstaining from prohibited actions. This obligation applies in all aspects of life, whether in public or in private, as Allah is always watching and aware of our actions.

    “And follow up a bad deed with a good deed; it will wipe it away.” Any type of good deed may weigh out the evil deed. However, there is one good deed that Shaykh al Uthaymeen highlights in this situation. What is it? (Clue: it is an anagram of A RECENT PEN)

    Correct Answer
    repentance
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "repentance". Repentance is the act of acknowledging and regretting one's wrongdoing and seeking forgiveness from God. It is considered a powerful and effective way to erase the effects of a bad deed. By sincerely repenting and making amends, one can seek forgiveness and strive to improve their actions, thus wiping away the negative consequences of the bad deed.

    Good manners can vary from person to person, as what one person considers good manners may not be the same for someone else. Additionally, the Prophet sall Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam did not restrict the mode and manner of interacting with people in a fine manner, allowing for flexibility in how one displays good manners. Seeking advice from knowledgeable individuals, such as the people of intellect, can help in understanding what constitutes good manners.
