QUESTION


WHAT DO YOU UNDERSTAND ABOUT ENTERING THE LIZARD HOLE?


  • This means that the Muslims will imitate and follow the kuffar in their creed, culture and character.
  • This issue is one of the signs of the Day of Judgement.


HADITH


Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (RA), who said that the Prophetﷺ said:
“They will follow the ways of those who came before them, handspan by handspan, cubit by cubit, until even if they entered a lizard’s hole they will follow them.” We said: “Oh Allah’s Messengerﷺ, (do you mean) the Jews and Christians?” He said: “Who else?”
[al-Bukhari (3456) and Muslim (2669)]


  • Allahﷻ told us that the kuffar want the Muslims to follow them in creed, culture and character.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Baqarah 2:120


وَلَن تَرْضَىٰ عَنكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلَا النَّصَارَىٰ حَتَّىٰ تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ
Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) till you follow their religion. (Al-Baqarah 2:120)


Allahﷻ also said in Surah Al-Qalam 68:9


وَدُّوا لَوْ تُدْهِنُ فَيُدْهِنُونَ
They wish that you should compromise (in religion out of courtesy) with them, so they (too) would compromise with you. (Al-Qalam 68:9)

  • The kuffar want the Muslims to behave like them.
  • When the Muslim does so, they claim that you are a good Muslim and courteous. If not, they will call the Muslim an extremist because that Muslim isn't flexible in his religion.
  • During the time of the Prophetﷺ, The kuffar made an indecent proposal by asking the Prophetﷺ to compromise on his deen by agreeing to worship Allahﷻ one year then worshipping the idols the following year and so forth.
  • Allahﷻ revealed Surah Al-Kafirun regarding this indecent proposal.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Kafirun 109:1-6


قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ
Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)to these Mushrikun and Kafirun) : "O Al-Kafirun (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His Angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadar, etc.)!
(Al-Kafirun 109:1)


لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ
"I worship not that which you worship.
(Al-Kafirun 109:2)


وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ
"Nor will you worship that which I worship.
(Al-Kafirun 109:3)


وَلَا أَنَا عَابِدٌ مَّا عَبَدتُّمْ
"And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping.  (Al-Kafirun 109:4)


وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ
"Nor will you worship that which I worship.
(Al-Kafirun 109:5)


لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ
"To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism)." (Al-Kafirun 109:6)

  • Also, this Surah is a declaration of war because of the ayah stating "I shall not worship what you worship.."
  • This declaration of war is a never ending battle because the ayah is in the future tense.
  • Due to this declaration, the battle of Badr and Uhud were fought, and Makkah was conquered.


HADITH


In this way, Quraish malicious intentions recoiled on them and their machination met with utter failure. They came to fully realize that the grudge they nursed against the Muslims would not operate but within their realm of Makkah. They consequently began to entertain a horrible idea of silencing the advocate of the new Call once and for all, through various channels of brutality, or else killing him. An obstinate difficulty, however, used to curtail any move in this direction embodied by the Prophet’s uncle Abu Talib and the powerful social standing he used to enjoy as well as the full protection and support he used to lend to his nephew. The pagans of Makkah therefore decided to approach Abu Talib for the second time and insisted that he put a stop to his nephew’s activities, which if allowed unchecked, they said, would involve him into severe hostility. Abu Talib was deeply distressed at this open threat and the breach with his people and their enmity, but he could not afford to desert the Messengerﷺ too. He sent for his nephew and told him what the people had said, "Spare me and yourself and put not burden on me that I can’t bear." Upon this the Prophetﷺ thought that his uncle would let him down and would no longer support him, so he replied: "O my uncle! by Allahﷻ if they put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left on condition that I abandon this course, until Allahﷻ has made me victorious, or I perish therein, I would not abandon it." The Prophetﷺ got up, and as he turned away, his uncle called him and said, "Come back, my nephew," and when he came back, he said, "Go and preach what you please, for by Allahﷻ I will never forsake you." He then recited two lines of verse pregnant with meanings of full support to the Prophetﷺ and absolute gratification by the course that his nephew had chalked out in Arabia.
[Ibn Hisham 1/265]

  • The kuffar would like the Muslims to imitate them because that is the ultimate form of flattery.
  • The kuffar wants the Muslims to perform the same acts as they do like eating pork, drinking alcohol, practicing sodomy, etc.
  • When a person is suffering from a superiority complex, they want others to imitate them.
  • Therefore, Allahﷻ advised not to take them for friends because they won't hesitate to destroy you.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Aali-Imran 3:118


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا بِطَانَةً مِّن دُونِكُمْ لَا يَأْلُونَكُمْ خَبَالًا
O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (advisors, consultants, protectors, helpers, friends, etc.) those outside your religion (pagans, Jews, Christians, and hypocrites) since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you.
(Aali Imran 3:118)


  • The kuffar become very happy when they make a Muslim lose their faith.
  • Part of their plan of corruption is to have the Muslims integrate and mix in their society.
  • Therefore, Muslims should prefer to stay in Muslim ghettos than integrating so that our daughters don't become prostitutes or our sons becoming homosexuals and/or drug addicts, suffer from inferiority complex, and/or have an identity confusion.
  • Surah Al-Kafirun 109:6, "You to your way and me to my way" was revealed in Makkah when the Muslims were weak with no army.
  • However, when the Muslims migrated to Medinah, that ayah was abrogated.
  • The ayah was abrogated with the below ayah and the Verse of the Sword.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Anfal 8:39


وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّىٰ لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلَّهِ فَإِنِ انتَهَوْا فَإِنَّ اللهَ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.
(Al-Anfal 8:39)


Allahﷻ also said in Surah At-Tawbah 9:5


فَإِذَا انسَلَخَ الْأَشْهُرُ الْحُرُمُ فَاقْتُلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَخُذُوهُمْ وَاحْصُرُوهُمْ وَاقْعُدُوا لَهُمْ كُلَّ مَرْصَدٍ فَإِن تَابُوا وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ فَخَلُّوا سَبِيلَهُمْ إِنَّ اللهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:5)


  • The Verse of the Sword has abrogated many verses in the Quran including the verse ‘No compulsion in religion’.
  • Due to this, you can force a person to become Muslim.
  • Qiyas (analogy) is used for forcing people to become Muslim.
  • For example, if a person owes another person money, the Qadi (judge) can force the person indebted to pay or else send him to jail. Therefore, you can force a kafir to take the Shahada (declaration of faith) because the debt you owe to Allahﷻ is greater than the monetary debt you owe to another person.
  • Another example of an abrogated verse is when a female committed Zina (fornication), the ruling was indefinite house arrest.

Allahﷻ said in Surah An-Nisa 4:15


وَاللَّاتِي يَأْتِينَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مِن نِّسَائِكُمْ فَاسْتَشْهِدُوا عَلَيْهِنَّ أَرْبَعَةً مِّنكُمْ فَإِن شَهِدُوا فَأَمْسِكُوهُنَّ فِي الْبُيُوتِ حَتَّىٰ يَتَوَفَّاهُنَّ الْمَوْتُ أَوْ يَجْعَلَ اللهُ لَهُنَّ سَبِيلًا
And those of your women who commit illegal sexual intercourse, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them (i.e. women) to houses until death comes to them or Allah ordains for them some (other) way. (An-Nisa 4:15)

  • The new ruling for fornication is 100 lashes.

Allahﷻ said in Surah An-Nur 24:2


الزَّانِيَةُ وَالزَّانِي فَاجْلِدُوا كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ مِّنْهُمَا مِائَةَ جَلْدَةٍ وَلَا تَأْخُذْكُم بِهِمَا رَأْفَةٌ فِي دِينِ اللهِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَلْيَشْهَدْ عَذَابَهُمَا طَائِفَةٌ مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law). (An-Nur 24:2)


  • Some critics say that no verse in the Quran is abrogated.  
  • However, these critics are ignorant because Allahﷻ has clearly stated in the Quran about Himﷻ abrogating verses.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Baqarah 2:106


مَا نَنسَخْ مِنْ آيَةٍ أَوْ نُنسِهَا نَأْتِ بِخَيْرٍ مِّنْهَا أَوْ مِثْلِهَا أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is able to do all things?
(Al-Baqarah 2:106)


  • Surah Tawbah was as long as Surah Baqarah.
  • Allahﷻ caused some verses to be forgotten.

HOW DO THE MUSLIMS IMITATE THE KUFFAR?


  1. SOMETIMES YOU GIVE YOUR CHILDREN KAFIR NAMES.


  • One of the rights of the Muslim child is to be given a good name.
  • A child’s first right is to be a legitimate child and not a bastard.
  • Abortion is halal if it's a bastard child.
  • Also, plastic surgery is halal because a person doesn't have to be pleased with Qadr (destiny).
  • For example, a child may be born with a deformed body part. Plastic surgery is halal in order to correct the deformity. This is not changing the creation of Allahﷻ but rather beautifying it.

    2.   WE ADOPT THEIR IDEOLOGIES


  • In the 1970's, communism was in its prime heyday.
  • Many Muslims adopted the communist ideology because they weren't taught to reject the Taghut (false deities).
  • These people have Muslim names but died as kuffar believing in communism.
  • In our modern time, the Fitna is democracy.
  • The same situation is re-occurring because you have millions of Muslims who have adopted into democracy.
  • Democracy is shirk because it is ‘Government Of the people, For the people and, By the people’.
  • Politicians sit in parliament and legislate laws whereas Allahﷻ is the only Legislator.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Kahf 18:26


وَلَا يُشْرِكُ فِي حُكْمِهِ أَحَدًا
And He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." (Al-Kahf 18:26)


  • A person can't be a Muslim and a Democrat at the same time. This is an oxymoron.
  • Democracy is a religion and a Muslim is not allowed to follow any other religion except ISLAM.
  • Also, Muslims follow the kuffar in socialism.
  • Socialism too, doesn't work.
  • For example, the people of Venezuela are suffering and starving.
  • Democratic countries are the most violent countries in the world.

FIQH AL-WAQ’I


HIGHEST CRIME RATES:

THE TOP 10 MOST VIOLENT COUNTRIES:


  1. USA
  2. Germany
  3. France
  4. Russian Federation
  5. Italy
  6. Canada
  7. Chile
  8. Poland
  9. Spain
  10. Netherlands

  • Muslims imitate the kuffar with racism.
  • They believe their own kind is only beautiful.


HADITH


Jabir reported: Allah’s Messengerﷺ, said:
“Verily, Allahﷻ is beautiful and he loves beauty. He loves the loftiest of affairs and disapproves of foolishness.”
(al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ 6902)


  • However, Allahﷻ is beautiful and in Hisﷻ Eyes there's beauty in all Hisﷻ creation.
  • Allahﷻ has 2 eyes according to the Hanbali school of thought.


ANOTHER HADITH


Abdullah bin 'Umar (RA) said: One day Allah’s Messengerﷺ mentioned Al-Masih Dajjal (the Antichrist) in the presence of the people and said:
"Verily, Allahﷻ is not one-eyed but Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right eye which looks like a swollen grape."
[al-Bukhari (7127) and Muslim (169)]


  • However, Allah’sﷻ two eyes are not like our eyes.
  • Allahﷻ doesn't need equipment to look at microscopic things or light to see in darkness like our eyes.

3.   YOU ATTEND THEIR FESTIVALS.


CHRISTMAS (DECEMBER 25TH)


  • Muslims attend their Christmas parties.
  • The kuffar pressure Muslims to attend their parties calling them anti-social if they don't attend or interact in their gatherings.
  • The kuffar will use that excuse to not promote them at the job.
  • Going to their Christmas parties, sending Christmas cards or even saying ‘Merry Christmas’ is haram and makes a Muslim apostate from Islam.

FATWA


Greeting the kuffar on the occasion of Christmas or any of their other religious holidays is haraam according to scholarly consensus, as was stated by Ibn al-Qayyim(RH) in his book Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah, where he says:
"Congratulating the kuffar on the rituals that belong only to them is haraam by consensus, as is congratulating them on their festivals and fasts by saying ‘A happy festival to you’ or ‘May you enjoy your festival,’ and so on. If the one who says this has been saved from kufr, it is still forbidden. It is like congratulating someone for prostrating to the cross, or even worse than that. It is as great a sin as congratulating someone for drinking wine, or murdering someone, or having illicit sexual relations, and so on. Many of those who have no respect for their religion fall into this error; they do not realize the offensiveness of their actions. Whoever congratulates a person for his disobedience or bid’ah or kufr exposes himself to the wrath and anger of Allahﷻ."
Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah by Ibn Qayyim


  • This makes a Muslim a kafir because it is endorsing their ideology and rituals.
  • Abu Hanifa (RH) said that even if you donate an egg to a fire worshipper on his day of festival, that makes you a kaafir.
  • He also said that if you see a Christian getting dressed for church and if you were to help them dress, that makes you a kafir too.


KWANZAA


  • Kwanzaa was started in 1966.
  • It is celebrated the 26th of December.
  • It was started by a Maulana from East Africa in substitution to Christmas.
  • However, Kwanzaa is a Pan-African black nationalist holiday.
  • This holiday is also haram.
  • Allahﷻ has perfected our religion, so there's no need to follow or participate in anything else.


Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:3


الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا
This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

NEW YEAR’S DAY (DECEMBER 31ST)


  • New Year’s Eve celebration doesn't make you a kafir. However, it is considered a bid'ah (innovation) because it isn't our New Year.
  • Muslims acknowledge the Hijrah calendar. Therefore, our days and months are different.
  • The Hijrah is marked by the start of Prophet’sﷺ migration to Madinah which was started by Umar(RH) when he was the Caliph.
  • We don't acknowledge the calendar of the Christians which is called the Gregorian calendar.
  • We currently live by this calendar out of necessity because we are living in Darul Harb.
  • However, in an Islamic State, the Hijrah calendar is only acknowledged.


HADITH


“I instruct you to observe Taqwa, to listen and to obey even if a black slave (rules you). Those of you who survive will see many discords. Beware; refrain from innovations in religion, for that is error. So, he of you who encounters that must adhere to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs. All of you should hold that firmly with your teeth.”
[Tirmidhi 2685, Ahmed 17145, Abu Dawud 4607, Ibn Majah 42]


  • Attending Christmas and New Year’s parties is also wasting your health and wealth.
  • Greeting someone "Happy New Year" is not shirk and saying so doesn't make you a kaafir.

VALENTINE’S DAY (FEBRUARY 14TH)


  • The Christian Arabs call Valentine's Day Eidul Hubb (holiday of love).
  • The history of Valentine’s Day originated in Rome during its empire.  Soldiers of the empire were banned from getting married so that they can focus on service for the state. There was a man named St. Valentine who opposed this ruling and secretly married them. He was later killed and martyred.
  • This holiday is celebrated by giving Valentine's cards and gifts to people they are sexually attracted to.
  • Therefore, a lot of Zina (fornication) is committed and many sexually transmitted diseases are spread on this day.
  • Also, many sexual crimes like ‘date rape’ occur on Valentine’s Day because a man takes a woman out on a date and he expects sexual favors in return.
  • Some Muslims living in Darul Harb celebrate this day.
  • The Saudi Government gave four men 32 years in prison because they hosted a party with non-mahram women. The government assumed that ill-intended activities took place and convicted them. Also, they were given a 1000 lashes.


HALLOWEEN (OCTOBER 31ST)


  • The history of Halloween began in Europe. The Europeans were afraid of ghosts. So they decided that if they ingratiate themselves by dressing in costumes as ghosts, they will not be harmed.
  • In America, Halloween is the 2nd biggest holiday celebration after Christmas.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Jinn 72:6


وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ رِجَالٌ مِّنَ الْإِنسِ يَعُوذُونَ بِرِجَالٍ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ فَزَادُوهُمْ رَهَقًا
'And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind) in sin and disbelief.
(Al-Jinn 72:6)


  • The above ayah can be applied to the philosophy of Halloween.
  • Halloween is considered to be the festival of ghosts and magic. Therefore it is HARAM (forbidden) to participate in its activities.
  • Also, it is HARAM to dress as the Gothic culture.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS


  • The history of Birthday celebrations began in Egypt. The Pharaohs were the first to celebrate birthdays.
  • The Pharaohs had a God-complex and they made it mandatory on the Egyptians to celebrate the birthdays of the Pharaohs.

Allahﷻ said in Surah An-Naziat 79:24


فَقَالَ أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَىٰ
Verily he (Pharaoh) said: I am your Lord, Most High.
(An-Naziat 79:24)


  • Then Greeks imitated the Egyptians and began celebrating birthdays in Europe. However, this celebration took a different turn than the celebration in Egypt. Instead of only celebrating the birthdays of the Pharaohs, the birthdays of men were celebrated in Europe. Then the celebration of everyone else followed afterwards.
  • Muslims should abstain from all these types of celebrations because it can make you poor by spending money to buy gifts for people on all these holidays.
  • For example, if a woman has multiple children, how will she finance the money to celebrate the birthday of all of the children. This puts a financial burden.
  • All these celebrations are haram and/or a bid'ah (innovation).
  • The Prophetﷺ was the best person on earth and he didn't celebrate his birthday nor did any of his Sahabas (RAA).
  • However, to celebrate your birthday doesn't make you a kaafir.

THE BIRTHDAY OF PROPHET MUHAMMADﷺ


  • This celebration originated when the Muslims conquered Christian countries, like Egypt and Syria, and saw the people celebrating the birthday of Jesus.
  • Feeling guilty about not celebrating, they began to celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammadﷺ.
  • Every country in the world celebrate the birthday of Muhammadﷺ except Saudi Arabia.
  • This is celebration is a bid’ah but it's virtually impossible to stop this celebration because of the widespread participation with Muslims.
  • The only way to eliminate this celebration if the Caliph conquered the lands and implemented the Shari’ah.
  • This celebration consists of reciting poems and fabricated hadiths.


FABRICATED HADITH


When Adam committed the sin of approaching the forbidden tree, he said, “O Lordﷻ, I beg of Theeﷻ to Forgive me due to the right of Muhammadﷺ over You” So Allahﷻ said, “O Adam, how did you know about Muhammadﷺ seeing that I have not yet created him.” He (Adam) replied, “O Lordﷻ, when Youﷻ Created me with Yourﷻ own hands and blew in me of Yourﷻ soul, I raised up my head, thereupon I saw on the pillar of Yourﷻ throne; There is no god but Allahﷻ and Muhammadﷺ is His Messenger; written on it. I therefore know that You wouldn't have mentioned someone’s name beside Yoursﷻ unless he was the most beloved person to Youﷻ in the whole of Yourﷻ creation.” So Allahﷻ said to him, “O Adam, you have spoken rightly, verily he is the most loved by Meﷻ of all Myﷻ creation. Call upon Meﷻ by his right over Meﷻ and I’ll forgive you. And if it wasn’t for Muhammadﷺ I wouldn’t have created you.”
(Related by Al-Haakim as very weak; Adh-Dhahabi classified it as fabricated)


***The Mustadrak is a good book, but it has many fabricated Hadiths.
      Al-Haakim collected all the hadiths that were rejected by Bukhari  
      and Muslim and called it the Mustadrak.
      Mustadrak means to correct a historical mistake.


  • To celebrate the Prophet's (saw) birthday is wrong because of the following Hadith:


HADITH


وعن الإمام أحمد قال: أصول الإسلام على ثلاثة أحاديث: حديث عمر: إنما الأعمال بالنيات، وحديث عائشة: من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس منه فهو رد، وحديث النعمان بن بشير: الحلال بين والحرام بين،


Imam Ahmad (bin Hanbal) (RH) said that "The principles of Islam are based on three hadith: the hadith of 'Umar (RA) that "deeds are judged only by intention," the hadith of 'A'isha (RA), "Whoever introduces into our affairs that which does not belong, it is rejected," and the hadith of al-Nu'man b. Bashir (RA), "The licit is clear and the illicit is clear."
[Jami' al-Uloom wa al-Hikam, Ibn Rajab (1/61)]

Allahﷻ said in Surah Ash-Shura 42:21


أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاءُ شَرَعُوا لَهُم مِّنَ الدِّينِ مَا لَمْ يَأْذَن بِهِ اللهُ وَلَوْلَا كَلِمَةُ الْفَصْلِ لَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُمْ وَإِنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ
Or have they partners with Allah (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion which Allah has not allowed. And had it not been for a decisive Word (gone forth already), the matter would have been judged between them. And verily, for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers), there is a painful torment. (Ash-Shura 42:21)


  • The scholars also use the above ayah as Hujjah (evidence) to NOT celebrate the birthday of the Prophetﷺ.
  • Also, celebrating death anniversary is a bid’ah.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:3


الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا
This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.  (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)


  • When you celebrate these innovated events and festivals, you are wasting your money.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Isra 17:27


إِنَّ الْمُبَذِّرِينَ كَانُوا إِخْوَانَ الشَّيَاطِينِ وَكَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ لِرَبِّهِ كَفُورًا
Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatin (devils), and the Shaitan (Devil Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)


  • People having birthday parties and inviting people makes it a burden on your fellow Muslim to attend an event that is not mandatory. These celebrations are not one of the six rights of a Muslim.


HADITH


Abu Huraira (RA) reported Allah's Messengerﷺ as saying:
Six are the rights of a Muslim over another Muslim. It was said to him: Allah's Messengerﷺ, what are these? Thereupon he said: When you meet him, offer him greetings; when he invites you to a feast accept it, when he seeks your counsel give him, and when he sneezes and says: "All praise is due to Allahﷻ," you say Yarhamuk Allahﷻ (may Allahﷻ show mercy to you); and when he falls ill visit him; and when he dies follow his bier.
[Sahih Muslim (4/1705) No. 2162, Musnad Ahmad (2/372) No. 8832, al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 925]


  • In some countries, people use their birthday to extort money or gifts from other people.  


HADITH


Jabir ibn Abdullah (RA) narrated Allah’s Messengerﷺ said in the Jumu’ah khutbah:
"...To proceed. The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allahﷻ, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error..."
[Sahih Muslim (2/592) No. 867]

THE FIVE MUSLIM CELEBRATIONS ACKNOWLEDGED


  1. Eidul Fitr
  2. Eidul Adha
  3. Waleemah
  4. Aqeeqah
  5. Jumuah


  • Taking your wife out to dinner because it is your wedding anniversary is NOT haram because it doesn't affect your Deen, Iman or Taqwa.
  • Going out for dinner because it's your birthday is NOT haram but rather Makrooh (disliked) because you are acknowledging Allahﷻ giving you life.
  • This is lesser celebration than making a party, buying cake, blowing out candles and handing out gifts, which are all bid’ah activities.


VETERAN’S DAY (NOVEMBER 11TH)


  • Muslims don't acknowledge this day because these veterans are kuffar fighting in a kafir army.
  • This army is also killing millions of Muslims around the world.
  • Acknowledging this day nullifies your Shahadah because Allahﷻ made takfeer on these armies.

Allahﷻ said in Surah An-Nisa 4:76


الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ الطَّاغُوتِ فَقَاتِلُوا أَوْلِيَاءَ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّ كَيْدَ الشَّيْطَانِ كَانَ ضَعِيفًا
Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)


MEMORIAL DAY (LAST MONDAY IN MAY)


  • This is same Hukm (ruling) as Veterans Day.
  • The difference between the two holidays is that Veterans Day commemorates veteran soldiers who are still alive, whereas Memorial Day commemorates dead soldiers.
  • Muslims don't celebrate neither.

INDEPENDANCE DAY (JULY 4TH)


  • Muslims are not allowed to participate in this holiday because blacks were still slaves.
  • Also, it's not one of the five Muslim celebrations acknowledged.

THANKSGIVING (THE LAST THURSDAY IN NOVEMBER)


  • This celebration has split the scholars right down the middle in their Hukm about participating in this holiday.
  • Thanksgiving is not linked to any religion.
  • The early Americans harvested their crops and thanked the Lord [not Jesus] for their harvest.
  • The original Americans, like Benjamin Franklin, believed in Allahﷻ and didn't believe Allahﷻ came from the womb of a woman.
  • If you participate in this holiday with the Niyah (intention) to uphold family ties, then this is NOT haram.

4. IMITATING THE KUFFAR IN THEIR SINS.


  1. ALCOHOL & DRUGS
  • Some Muslim imitate the kuffar by drinking alcohol, smoking drugs, etc.
  • Your prayer is not accepted for 40 days and nights if you do so.


HADITH


Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) reported that Allah’s Messengerﷺ said:
“If anyone drinks wine then his salah over forty days are not approved. If he repents then Allahﷻ will relent to him. If he reverts (to it), then Allahﷻ will not approve his salah over forty days. If he repents, Allahﷻ will relent to him but if he reverts (to it) then Allahﷻ will not approve his salah over forty days. If he repents then Allahﷻ will relent to him. Again, if he reverts the fourth time, Allahﷻ will not approve his salah over forty days and if he repents then Allahﷻ will not relent to him and Heﷻ will give him to drink from the river of Khabal.” Someone asked, “O Abu Abdur Rahman (RA)! what is the river of Khabal?’ He said, “The pus of the dwellers of the people of fire.”
[Sunan Tirmidhi (4/290) No. 1862, Sunan Nasa'i (8/317) No. 5670, Musnad Ahmad (2/35) No. 4917, al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (12/390) No. 13441]

2. ZINA (FORNICATION)
  • Many Muslim men in the west have girlfriends and ‘sidechicks’.
  • Also, there are Muslim women who have become ‘sidechicks’ themselves.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Isra 17:32


وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الزِّنَا إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاءَ سَبِيلًا
And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way.
(Al-Isra 17:32)


HADITH


Abu Umamah (RA) saying that a young man came to the Prophetﷺ and said:
"O Allah’s Messengerﷺ! Give me permission to commit Zina (unlawful sex).'' The people surrounded him and rebuked him, saying, "Stop! Stop!'' But the Prophetﷺ said, "(Come close)". The young man came to him, and he said, "(Sit down)", so he sat down. The Prophetﷺ said, "(Would you like it (unlawful sex) for your mother?)" He said, "No, by Allahﷻ, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophetﷺ said, "(Neither do the people like it for their mothers!)" The Prophetﷺ said, "(Would you like it for your daughter?)" He said, "No, by Allahﷻ, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophetﷺ said, "(Neither do the people like it for their daughters!)" The Prophetﷺ said, "(Would you like it for your sister?)" He said, "No, by Allahﷻ, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophetﷺ said, "(Neither do the people like it for their sisters!)" The Prophetﷺ said, "(Would you like it for your paternal aunt?)" He said, "No, by Allahﷻ, O Allah's Messengerﷺ! May I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophetﷺ said, "(Neither do the people like it for their paternal aunts!)" The Prophetﷺ said, "(Would you like it for your maternal aunt?)" He said, "No, by Allahﷻ, O Allah's Messengerﷺ! May I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophetﷺ said, "(Neither do the people like it for their maternal aunts!)" Then the Prophetﷺ put his hand on him and said, "(O Allahﷻ, forgive his sin, purify his heart and guard his chastity.)" After that the young man never paid attention to anything of that nature.
[Musnad Ahmad, (Vol. 5, pg. 256) No. 22265]


  • Ahmed ibn Hanbal (RH) said Zina and murder go hand-in hand. Any society in which Zina is widespread, murder is also widespread.


HADITH


The Hour will come when adultery becomes widespread.  
(Al-Haythami, Kitab al-Fitan)

3. NIGHTCLUBS


  • Many Muslim men and women wearing hijab go to nightclubs.
  • Muslims can't go to a nightclub and expect to only go drink Pepsi.


HADITH


Jabir (RA) reported that the Prophetﷺ said:
‘He who believes in Allahﷻ and the Last Day must not sit at the table where wine is passed round.”
[Sunan Tirmidhi (5/113) No. 2801, Musnad Ahmad (3/339) No. 14692, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (6/257) No. 6708, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/320) No. 7779]

4. GAMBLING

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:90-91


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al Ansab, and Al Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytan's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.
(Al-Ma'idah 5:90)


إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُوقِعَ بَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ فِي الْخَمْرِ وَالْمَيْسِرِ وَيَصُدَّكُمْ عَن ذِكْرِ اللهِ وَعَنِ الصَّلَاةِ فَهَلْ أَنتُم مُّنتَهُونَ
Shaitan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from As-Salat (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain? (Al-Ma'idah 5:91)

  • Gambling is haram.
  • If you tell your Muslim brother ‘Let's Gamble’, you have to give at least $100 in charity.


HADITH


Abu Hurairah (RA) said: The Prophetﷺ said:
"He who takes an oath and involuntarily says: 'By Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza' should at once affirm: 'La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allahﷻ', and he who says to his companion: 'Come let's gamble' should make expiation by giving something in charity."
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

5. PORNOGRAPHY


  • Pornography is haram.
  • Some people watch porn and dabble in anal sex or threesomes.
  • These are sexual practices of the kuffar.
  • Anal sex is haram but there's nothing in the Quran or Sunnah about oral sex. So it's your discretion.

6. HOMOSEXUALITY


  • There is no such thing as a Gay Muslim.
  • Also, there's no such thing as a Gay Masjid. A place of worship for Gay’s is a temple.
  • This is an oxymoron.
  • Allahﷻ made takfeer on the Gays in the Quran.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Adh-Dhariyat 51:35-36


فَأَخْرَجْنَا مَن كَانَ فِيهَا مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
So We brought out from therein the believers.
(Adh-Dhariyat 51:35)


فَمَا وَجَدْنَا فِيهَا غَيْرَ بَيْتٍ مِّنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters].
(Adh-Dhariyat 51:36)


  • Therefore, Allahﷻ didn't give Gays the right to be Muslims.
  • They don't take their Shahadah because it's impossible for them to reconcile their gay lifestyle with the pure teachings of Islam.
  • So a gay CANNOT be a Muslim and anyone who believes otherwise becomes a kafir.
  • Gay is a belief, religion, lifestyle, and community.
  • Therefore, when you come ‘Out of the closet’ and say "I am gay", you have left the fold of Islam.
  • Be careful of the wicked scholars because they're aim and objective is to do to Islam what was done to Christianity.
  • Mohsin Hendricks from South Africa went to Pakistan to learn Islam then came back gay.
  • He opened up a temple called "The Inner Circle".
  • The kuffar love this guy and say he is a very good Muslim because he is flexible and open-minded.

7. WORSHIPPING THE PROPHET(saw)


  • Muslims imitate the kuffar by worshiping the Prophetﷺ.
  • The Sufi's worship the prophet and are called the Christians of the Ummah.


FIQH AL-WAQ’I


You can call on Muhammed by Hamza Yusuf:

8. BELIEVING IN DEMOCRACY


9. CLOTHING


  • Some Muslims dress like the kuffar.
  • Wearing Trousers and Shirts is NOT haram because it's a universal dress code that doesn't belong to a particular religion.
  • The Tie is not haram if it is part of your uniform at work or school.
  • Otherwise, it is not wise to wear the tie because some scholars refer that as the clothing of the kuffar.

12 REASONS WHY MUSLIMS IMITATE THE KUFFAR


1. LOW SELF-ESTEEM


  • They imitate the kuffar to feel better about themselves.


2. INFERIORITY COMPLEX


3. STOCKHOLM SYNDROME


  • Stockholm Syndrome is when a people copy their conqueror in language, religion, culture, etc.


4. PEER PRESSURE


Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-Baqarah 2:120


وَلَن تَرْضَىٰ عَنكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلَا النَّصَارَىٰ حَتَّىٰ تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ
Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) till you follow their religion. (Al-Baqarah 2:120)


5. WEAK PERSONALITY


  • Only a few people can say NO when a kafir invites them to drugs, alcohol and other sins.
  • Allahﷻ loves the strong believer.


HADITH
Abu Hurayra (RA) said that Allah’s Messengerﷺ said:
"The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allahﷻ than the weak believer although there is good in each. Desire that which will bring you benefit, and seek help from Allahﷻ and do not give way to incapacity. If something happens to you, do not say, 'If only I had done such-and-such.' Rather say, 'The decree of Allahﷻ. Heﷻ does what Heﷻ will.' Otherwise you will open yourself up to the action of Shaytan." [Sahih Muslim, Book 33, Hadith #6441]


6. TRYING TO PLEASE & APPEASE THE KUFFAR IN THE NAME OF  
   POLITENESS.


  • For example, a Muslim goes to the staff party to be polite so that his co-workers don't assume they're a radical or fundamentalist.


7. THEY WANT TO FOLLOW THE MAJORITY


  • It's human nature to follow the majority because they don't want to stand out.
  • Young Muslim girls take off the hijab because they are the only hijabi in the school.
  • Allahﷻ has cursed the majority in the Quran.

Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-An’am 6:116


وَإِن تُطِعْ أَكْثَرَ مَن فِي الْأَرْضِ يُضِلُّوكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللهِ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَخْرُصُونَ
And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie. (Al-An'am 6:116)


  • The scholars also use the above ayah to flush down the ideology of Democracy.


Allahﷻ said in Surah Al-A’raf 7:187


قُلْ إِنَّمَا عِلْمُهَا عِندَ اللهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
"The knowledge thereof is with Allah (Alone) but most of mankind know not." (Al-A'raf 7:187)
Allahﷻ also said in Surah Al-Baqarah 2:243


إِنَّ اللهَ لَذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى النَّاسِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَشْكُرُونَ
Truly, Allah is full of Bounty to mankind, but most men thank not. (Al-Baqarah 2:243)


Allahﷻ also said in Surah Yusef 12:103


وَمَا أَكْثَرُ النَّاسِ وَلَوْ حَرَصْتَ بِمُؤْمِنِينَ
And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly. (Yusuf 12:103)


Allahﷻ said in Surah Yusef 12:106


وَمَا يُؤْمِنُ أَكْثَرُهُم بِاللهِ إِلَّا وَهُم مُّشْرِكُونَ
And most of them believe not in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him [i.e. they are Mushrikun -polytheists see Verse 6: 121]. (Yusuf 12:106)
  • All the above Ayahs show how the majority are cursed and are destined to Hell.


HADITH


Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (RA), that the Prophetﷺ said:
“Allahﷻ will say, ‘O Adam!’ and he will say, ‘Here I am at Your service, and all goodness is in Yourﷻ hand.’ Heﷻ will say, ‘Bring forth those who are to be sent to Hell.’ He will say, ‘Who are those who are to be sent to Hell?’ Heﷻ will say, ‘From every thousand, nine hundred and ninety nine.’  
[al-Bukhari (3348) and Muslim (222)]


8. YOU HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT ISLAM


  • Some people see Islam as too restrictive.


9. THEY WERE NOT TAUGHT AL-WALAA WAL BARAA


  • Most Muslims were not taught Kufr Bit Taghut by their parents or local imams.


10. WEAK IMAN


11. CURIOSITY


  • ‘Curiosity killed the cat’.
  • Muslims want to imitate the kuffar in the name of curiosity.
  • For example, you watched James Bond movies as a child and were curious how a martini tastes because of what you saw in the movie.
  • Another example, is that some people watch so much porn that they want to experiment even in sodomy.


12. INFLUENCE OF THE MEDIA


  • Muslims are influenced especially by Hollywood and Bollywood because they want to imitate the actors and actresses.
  • These celebrities drink alcohol, commit zina and other sins.
  • They even introduce cartoons and children programs that have a Gay agenda like, Teletubbies, SpongeBob and Sesame Street.
  • Therefore, darul harb has destroyed them.
