    is this a joke ?
    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    muslim

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    [Recorded by Imam Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi]

    Re: Sheikh Muhammad al-Yaqobi's recipe for a sharp memory;

    If you are removing almond skin instantly then hot hot water works best

    If soaking overnight then use lukewarm water, as bro. Med says it will go cold anyway...but still loosen the skin

    or if you wanna be lazy you can buy blanched almonds in the health shop!!

    Also Mum used to give that milk to bro when he was doing Hifz and he still has it when he is leading Taraweeh.....so it must work

    Re: Sheikh Muhammad al-Yaqobi's recipe for a sharp memory;

    From Islam Q&A:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Some of the things that may help to combat forgetfulness are the following:

    Keeping away from sin, because the bad effects of sin result in a bad memory and the inability to retain knowledge. The darkness of sin cannot co-exist with the light of knowledge. The following words were attributed to al-Shaafa'i, may Allaah have mercy on him:

    “I complained to [my shaykh] Wakee’ about my bad memory, and he taught me that I should keep away from sin.

    He said that knowledge of Allaah is light, and the light of Allaah is not given to the sinner.”

    Al-Khateeb reported in al-Jaami’ (2/387) that Yahya ibn Yahya said: “A man asked Maalik ibn Anas, ‘O Abu ‘Abd-Allaah! Is there anything that will improve my memory?’ He said, ‘If anything will improve it, it is giving up sin.’”

    When a person commits a sin, it overwhelms him and this leads to anxiety and sorrow which keeps him busy thinking about what he has done. This dulls his senses and distracts him from many beneficial things, including seeking knowledge.
    Frequently remembering Allaah, may He be glorified, by reciting dhikr, tasbeeh (saying ‘Subhan Allaah’), tahmeed (‘Al-hamdu Lillaah’), tahleel (‘Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah’) and takbeer (‘Allaahu akbar’), etc. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “…And remember your Lord when you forget…” [al-Kahf 18:24] Not eating too much, because eating too much makes one sleep too much and become lazy, and it dulls the senses, besides exposing one to the risk of physical diseases. Most of the diseases which we see result from food and drink. Some of the scholars have mentioned certain foods which increase the memory, such as drinking honey and eating raisins and chewing certain kinds of gum resin.

    Imaam al-Zuhri said: “You should eat honey because it is good for the memory.”

    He also said: “Whoever wants to memorize hadeeth should eat raisins.” (From al-Jaami’ by al-Khateeb, 2/394).

    Ibraaheem ibn [sth. omitted] said, “You should chew resin gum, because it gives energy to the heart and gets rid of forgetfulness.” (From al-Jaami’ by al-Khateeb, 2/397).

    As they mentioned, too much acidic food is one of the causes of laziness and weak memory.
    Another thing that can help the memory and reduce forgetfulness is cupping (hijaamah) of the head, as is well known from experience. (For more information see Al-Tibb al-Nabawi by Ibn al-Qayyim). And Allaah knows best.

    -----

    Gum resin, we call it loobaan which I think is mastic gum (?) If someone knows for definite though, please do correct me.
    Abu Huraira RA narrated that Allah’s Messenger SAW said:
    Who-ever says ‘Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi hi, one hundred time a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea.
    Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

    Re: Sheikh Muhammad al-Yaqobi's recipe for a sharp memory;

    Memory is a very fickle thing but here are some tips to keep it sharp.
    1. Repetition or you can say practice, practice, practice
    2. Next look for associations in what it is you are learning, how seemingly different bits of information link together, then if you can recall one bit it is easier to recall the other.
    3. Discussion is also good for it lets you look at a piece of information from many angles and eventually that information will become your own. This discussion board is good in that respect because you can 'try out' what you know and see what others say as well as refining your own logic and presentation skills
    4. Discuss what you know with anyone who will listen, don't be put off by thinking to yourself 'they will never understand' because if so you can explain it, simplify it, illustrate it and all this helps with memory.
    5. Create a picture in your mind, rather like an analogy that help you remember and understand at the same time.
    6. It is a good idea not to try to rush learning, so take a break (long or short); a walk, sit in the sun, listen to music, a cup of coffee almost anything to give the brain a chance to daydream and reorganise its pathways.
    7. Lastly try to apply what it is you are remembering. So if you are trying to memorize Ohms law try it out on a few examples and that way it gets embedded in your conciousness (similar to item 1)

    So is the honey eaten seprately?

    The Prophet (saw) said, Verily, the knots of Islam will be undone one by one. Whenever one knot is lost, then the people grabbed onto the one which came after it. The first of these knots will be ruling and the last will be the salah.[1]

    The author of Sitoon as-Sultaniyah says about this Hadith: “It was the Prophet who tied together the knots of Islam, including the uppermost knot of ruling after he established the Islamic state…As mentioned by Imam Mawardi the leadership has been proscribed as the succession of the Prophet in protecting the deen and governing the societal affairs. In this respect – Imam Baidawi mentioned that the Imama/Khalifah is the succession from the Prophet in the establishment of the laws of the Shari’ah. So without the Imam the laws lie unapplied and the territory is not protected effectively. The hadith indicates that it is the uppermost knot that keeps the subsequent knots safe from being untied. This is since it is the ruler that is responsible to apply Islam in its entirety, to implement the limits proscribed by Allah and to protect the society. Imam Ahmed mentioned without an Imam (for the Muslims as their leader) there would be fitna, and the destruction of the symbols of Islam ending with the Prayer is a great fitna.[2]

    when you rub them on this kind of plate it develops as a paste due to the rough surface of the plate and then have that paste on empty stomach... this is to increase of hafiza (memory).

    Wasnt it Imam Shafi'ee who said that excessive sinning will have an effect on memroy.

    Because 'ilm is noor, and sin in dhulmah, and where there is dhulmah the noor of Allah swt cannot enter?

    That´s so similiar to what we had as kids, my mom would turn the almonds and pistachios into a paste add honey and warm milks and we would eat like a sort of poridge but it was good very filling and sweet

    How do you see improvements?

    The Prophet (saw) said, Verily, the knots of Islam will be undone one by one. Whenever one knot is lost, then the people grabbed onto the one which came after it. The first of these knots will be ruling and the last will be the salah.[1]

    The author of Sitoon as-Sultaniyah says about this Hadith: “It was the Prophet who tied together the knots of Islam, including the uppermost knot of ruling after he established the Islamic state…As mentioned by Imam Mawardi the leadership has been proscribed as the succession of the Prophet in protecting the deen and governing the societal affairs. In this respect – Imam Baidawi mentioned that the Imama/Khalifah is the succession from the Prophet in the establishment of the laws of the Shari’ah. So without the Imam the laws lie unapplied and the territory is not protected effectively. The hadith indicates that it is the uppermost knot that keeps the subsequent knots safe from being untied. This is since it is the ruler that is responsible to apply Islam in its entirety, to implement the limits proscribed by Allah and to protect the society. Imam Ahmed mentioned without an Imam (for the Muslims as their leader) there would be fitna, and the destruction of the symbols of Islam ending with the Prayer is a great fitna.[2]

    It was imaam shaafi'is ustaadh wakee' ibn al jarraah rahimahumallaah that said it.



    "The `Aalim knows who is a Jaahil, because he used to be a Jaahil before. But the Jaahil does not know who is an `Aalim, because he was never an `Aalim before."


    Imaam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahimahullaah in Majmoo`ul Fataawaa.
