– Benefits from the āyah, {Those whom they call upon desire (for themselves) means of access to their Lord (Allāh), as to which of them should be the nearest and they hope for His Mercy and fear His Torment. Verily, the Torment of your Lord is something to be afraid of!} [Sūrah al-Isrā 17:57]

1. Is it permissible for the Sunnī Salafī to give lectures with the extreme Sūfīs in their conferences etc. without refuting them, and it is possible that the Sunnī praises and speaks well of them? [43:48]

2. What are the matters that will increase us in fear and hope? [48:55]

3. How do we gather between the statement of Allāh, “And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger (to give warning)” and the statement of the Messenger ﷺ concerning his own father when he responded to the man, “Indeed my father and your father are both in the Fire”? [51:23]
