All praises are for Allaah and may the salutations and the du’aa of salaams be upon the Prophet and I bear witness that no deity has the right to be worshipped except Allaah alone, having no partners and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
Indeed the brother, Abul Layth, has performed the task of translating My Advise to the Women [Darul-Haddeeth edition] into the English language so that those who do not know the ‘Arabic language are able to benefit from the book.
I truly advise the non-‘Arabic speaking women, those who seek the correct methodology, in which there is no crookedness, to devote their attention to gaining the ‘Arabic language and understanding of it in order that they may gain understanding of the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Prophet, for they are both authentic, free from doubt and deviance and misguidance…
…There is no way of knowing this except by studying the ‘Arabic language, for indeed the Qur’aan and the Sunnah are both ‘Arabic as Allaah has said, “An ‘Arabic Qur’aan without crookedness so that you may become of those who fear [Allaah].” [Sooratuz-Zumar 39:28]
And He has said, “And verily it is most certainly Revelation from the Lord of all that exists. The trustworthy sprit [Jibreel] descended with it upon your heart so that you can be of the warners in a clear ‘Arabic language.” [Sooratush-Shu’araa 26:192-195]
And Allaah has said, “Verilt we descended it as an ‘Arabic Qur’aan, so that you may understand.” [Soorah Yoosuf 12:2]
