Nasiha of Shaykh Yahya Hajoori to Ahlus-Sunnah of Maldives

Nasiha of al-Fadeelat as-Shaykh
Yahyaa bin Alee al-Hajoori (Hafidhahullaah):
النصيحة الشيخ يحيى بن علي الحجوري -حفظه الله
It was asked, ‘What is your advice to the Ahlu Sunnah of Maldives?’
Allaamah Naasihul Ameen Shaykh Yahya bin Alee al-Hajoori replied:
My advice to them is to seek knowledge, as the prophet (sallalaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:
من يرد الله به خيرا يفقهه في الدي
” If Allaah is pleased with someone, He gives him the fiqh (understanding) of the religion.”
And also he (sallalaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:
خيركم من تعلم القران و علمه
“The best of you are those who learn the Qur’aan and teach it”

(And Allaah said:)يَرْفَعِ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ دَرَجَاتٍ
“Allâh will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. And Allâh is Well-Acquainted with what you do.” (Al-Mujadilah 58:11)

And knowledge is virtuous for the slave and is a noor (light) for him too as Allaah has named it:
أَوَمَنْ كَانَ مَيْتًا فَأَحْيَيْنَاهُ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُ نُورًا يَمْشِي بِهِ فِي النَّاسِ كَمَنْ مَثَلُهُ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ لَيْسَ بِخَارِجٍ مِنْهَا
Is he who was dead (without Faith by ignorance and disbelief) and We gave him life (by knowledge and Faith) and set for him a light (of Belief) whereby he can walk amongst men, like him who is in the darkness (of disbelief, polytheism and hypocrisy) from which he can never come out? (Al-An’am 6:122)

And Allaah said: 
وَكَذَلِكَ أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ رُوحاً مِّنْ أَمْرِنَا مَا كُنتَ تَدْرِى مَا الْكِتَـبُ وَلاَ الاِْيمَـنُ وَلَـكِنْ جَعَلْنَـهُ نُوراً نَّهْدِى بِهِ مَن نَّشَآءُ مِن عِبَادِناً وَإِنَّكَ لَتَهْدِى إِلَى صِرَط مُّسْتَقِيم
“And thus We have sent to you (O Muhammad) Ruhan (an Inspiration, and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is Faith? But We have made it (this Qur’ân) a light wherewith We guide whosoever of Our slaves We will. And verily, you (O Muhammad) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allâh’s religion of Islâmic Monotheism). (Ash-Shura 42: 52)”

Knowledge is the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of guidance (sallalaahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Allaah Azza wajal said: 
هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَكَفَى بِاللَّهِ شَهِيداً
He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), that He may make it (Islâm) superior over all religions. And All-Sufficient is Allâh as a Witness. (Al-Fath 48:28)

And the guidance is the beneficial knowledge, and the religion of truth, and that is the ‘amal as-saalih. This is what I advice you with, obedience to Allaah subuhaanahu wata’aala and avoidance of bid’ah, shirk and superstitions…And implement the Sunnah as the prophet sallalaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said:
عليكم بسنتي وسنة الخلفاء الراشدين المهديين ، عضّوا عليها بالنواجذ ، وإياكم ومحدثات الأمو
‘Upon you is to follow my Sunnah and Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs after me, and hold on to it with your molar teeth, and Beware of newly invented matters”

And Allaah ‘Azza waJal said:
لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ
Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much. (Al-Ahzab 33:21)
And also said:
وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْراً أَن يَكُونَ لَهُمُ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ وَمَن يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالاً مُّبِيناً
It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. (Al-Ahzab 33:36)

And Allaah subuhaanahu wata’aala said: 
فَلاَ وَرَبِّكَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّىَ يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لاَ يَجِدُواْ فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَرَجاً مِّمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُواْ تَسْلِيماً
But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission. (An-Nisa 4:65)
And He,Azza waJal also said:
لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ
Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad) you have a good example to follow
(Al-Ahzab 33:21)
