Tighten your wrist watch brother! – Shaykh Hamood ibn Abdullah At Tuwaijiree (Revised and Corrected)

Tighten your wrist watch brother! (Revised and Corrected)

The scholar Shaykh Hamood ibn Abdullah At Tuwaijiree—may Allah have mercy upon him—said:

Also from the evil phenomena are the men wearing watches on their wrists like women bracelets! The man who wears a watch combines imitating the women, imitating the Europeans, and other than them from the enemies of Allah the Exalted, and imitating the inhabitants of the fire; because iron will be the adornment for the inhabitants of the fire.

And the Shaykh said:

And most of them wear their watches on their wrists like women bracelets; while the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم has cursed the men who imitate women.

Collected by Ahmad and others, from the hadith of ibn Abbass, At Tirmidi declared it Hassan Saheeh.

Source: Al Qawlul al-Muharrar concerning the affair of enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. (Page 131 and pages 14-15)

Translator’s note: A brother—may Allah reward him with an abundance of good—pointed out a mistake in my initial translation of the Shaykh words. It should have read:

“The man who wears a watch combines imitating the women, imitating the Europeans, and other than them from the enemies of Allah the Exalted, and imitating the inhabitants of the fire; because iron will be the adornment for the inhabitants of the fire.”

This is based upon the Shaykh’s view that wearing watches is Haraam due to it imitating the people of the fire.

To see the view of many other scholars who say wearing watches in permissible see link below…

Here is what Shaykh Fawzan said:

Question:

I heard one of the scholars said wearing watches is haram because it is the adornment of the inhabitants of the fire, what is your view concerning this statement? Is there any proof for this from the Book and the Sunnah?

Shaykh Fawzan:

We do not know any proof for this statement from the Book and the Sunnah. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said to a man, ‘look for a ring even if it is from iron.’ The man who wanted to marry a woman and he did not have a dowry; the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said to him, ‘search for a ring even if is from iron’. This is proof that wearing iron is permissible; whether it is a ring, or other than that. And watches are clothing, watches are clothing and the principle in clothing is permissibility except for where there is a proof of its impermissibility; such as gold watches for men, or watches that contain gold for men. We refuse it because it is only specific for women. As for watches free of gold then we do not know of any proof of its impermissibility. Yes some of the people were frightened away from them when they appeared, they disapproved of them, but when it became clear that there was no proof of it being impermissible, and it was clothing, and the principle in clothing is it is permissible; then there is no problem with it. InshaAllah.

قال العلامة الشيخ/ حمود بن عبد الله التويجري

ومن المنكرات الظاهرة أيضًا تحلي الرجال بالساعات في أيديهم كأنها أساور النساء, والمتحلى بالساعة قد جمع بين التشبه بالنساء والتشبه بالإفرنج وغيرهم من أعداء الله تعالى، والتشبه بأهل النار؛ لأن الحديد حلية أهل النار. اهـ

المرجع: كتاب القول المحرر في الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر (ص/131

وقال الشيخ حمود التويجري رحمه الله

وغالبهم يتحلون بالساعات في أيديهم كأنها أساور النساء، وقد لعن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم المتشبهين من الرجال بالنساء رواه الإمام أحمد، وأبو داود الطيالسي والبخاري وأهل السنن إلا النسائي من حديث ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما، وقال الترمذي: هذا حديث حسن صحيح

نص السؤال: سمعت من أحد المشايخ أن لبس الساعة حرام لأنها حلية أهل النار ، فما رأيكم في هذا القول ، وهل عليه دليل من الكتاب والسنة ؟

الجواب:

لا نعلم لهذا القول دليلا من الكتاب والسنة، النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لرجلٍ التمس خاتما ولو من حديد، الرجل الذي أراد أن يتزوج امرأة وليس عنده مهرا، قال له النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم التمس ولو خاتما من حديد فدل أن لبس الحديد جائز، من الخاتم وغيره والساعة من اللباس، الساعة من اللباس، والأصل في اللباس الإباحة إلا ما دلَّ الدليل على تحريمه كساعة الذهب للرجال أو الساعة التي فيها ذهب للرجال هذا نرفضه لأنه خاص بالنساء فقط أما الساعة الخالية من الذهب فلا نعلم لتحريمها دليلا، نعم استنفرها بعض الناس لما ظهرت، استنكروها، لكن لما تبين لهم أنه ما فيه دليل على التحريم وأنها من اللباس وأن الأصل في اللباس الإباحة فهذا لابأس به ان شاء الله. نعم

The evidence that points to the obligation of covering the face for the woman – Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan

The evidence that points to the obligation of covering the face for the woman – Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan

Question:

May Allaah keep you firm. We hope from you clarification of the evidence that points to the obligation of covering the face for the woman.

Answer:

The evidence is from Quran and Sunnah (Allaah says)

“And when you ask for something, ask them from behind a hijaab.”(33:53)

And the hijaab is that which conceals the women from a cloth, a wall or a door.

Allaah says;

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be harmed…” (33:59)

So in the hijaab is prevention from the harm of evil doers (from) what they desire from her. If she covers then the evil doers and hypocrites will have no desire for her. But if she removes (it) then the evil doers and hypocrites will desire what she has.

Ibn Abbas was asked about the meaning of the verse, “to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments” (33:59) He then took the area of his garment and placed it over his face; clarifying that this is the meaning of it (covering the face).

Aaisha (may Allaah be pleased with her) said “when we were with the Messenger of Allaah in the state of ihram (during hajj); when men would pass by us we would put our khimar down over our heads and faces and when the men would proceed by us we would remove it. All this was in the presence of the prophet س لم و ع ل يه صل and he approved of that.

The hijaab my brothers Allaah mentioned regarding it two benefits;
•The first benefit: that it is purification for the heart (as Allaah says) “That is more pure for your hearts and for theirs” (33:53) And what single male or female Muslim does not want a pure heart?!
•The second benefit: it prevents the harm of the hypocrites and evil doers and (their) enjoyment of her. So when she (properly) wears hijaab they are not able to see her face; therefore finding pleasure in her. (Allaah says) “That is more suitable that they will be known” (33:59) Meaning they will be known for chastity “and not be harmed” (33:59) (Meaning) their desires for her will be cut (off), but if they see her revealing and uncovered; they will desire her and harm her.
