Notes: 6 Things a Muslim can NOT doubt- Shaikh Faisal

6 Things a Muslim can NOT doubt
Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars 4.01.11)

Surah Baqarah
2. This is the Book (the Qur'ân), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqûn [the pious and righteous persons who fear Allâh much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allâh much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)].

1. Not allowed to doubt its completion
Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'ân) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (15:9)

2. Not allowed to doubt in its accuracy
Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allah ÚÒ æ Ìá). (41:42)
--> one of the conditions of shahada is yaqeen (certainty)
--> if u doubt one word, u become a kaafir

·   Shias say Allah swt lies: “Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]
·   "It was narrated that [Imam] Jafar Ibn Muhamad p.b.u.h said : The Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h used to put his face between the breasts of [ his daughter ] Fatima before going to sleep" Bihaar al-Anwar, vol. 43, p. 78
·   "A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, however selling the meat to the next door village should be fine."- Ayatollah Khomeini, from Khomeini's book, Tahrirolvasyleh, 4th volume, Darol Elm, Gom, Iran, 1990
·   "One who performs Mut'ah (temporary marriage) once will attain the rank of Imam Hussain, one who performs it twice will attain the rank of Imam Hassan, one who performs it thrice will attain the rank of Imam Ali and one who performs it four times will attain my rank (i.e. will attain the rank of Prophet Muhammad)" (Tafseer Mihaj-ul-Siddiqeen, Vol. No. 1, Page No. 356)

3. Not allowed to doubt the hikmah/ purpose of the Quran
--> Everything created has a purpose [so we must obey the Qu’ran even if we don’t understand it]
(Allâh) said: "What prevented you (O Iblîs) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblîs said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)
--> not allowed to be a rationalist (like iblis)
The son replied: "I will betake myself to a mountain, it will save me from the water." Nûh (Noah) said: "This day there is no saviour[] from the Decree of Allâh except him on whom He has mercy." And a wave came in between them, so he (the son) was among the drowned. (Hud 11:43)
--> hear and obey, naql(revelation) over aql.
Prophet (saws) was commanded: “read” –>knowledge is got thru revelation

"The hell-fire of hell complained to its Lord saying: O Lord! My parts are eating (destroying) one another. So Allah allowed it to take two breaths, one in the winter and the other in the summer. The breath in the summer is at the time when you feel the severest heat and the breath in the winter is at the time when you feel the severest cold." (Bukhari, Book 10, Narration 512)

Verily, Allah is not ashamed to set forth a parable even of a mosquito or so much more when it is bigger (or less when it is smaller) than it. And as for those who believe, they know that it is the Truth from their Lord, but as for those who disbelieve, they say: "What did Allah intend by this parable?" By it He misleads many, and many He guides thereby. And He misleads thereby only those who are Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious, disobedient to Allah).(2:26)

4. Not allowed to doubt the justice of the Quran
This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves. (3:182)
Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand of the thief, male or female, as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah. And Allah is All-Powerful, All-Wise. (5:38)
--> tawheed hakimiyyah is the twin half of tawheed ibadah (ur sharia is ur ibadah)
because they (devils and their friends) made lawful to you to eat that which Allah has made unlawful to eat and you obeyed them by considering it lawful to eat, and by doing so you worshipped them, and to worship others besides Allah is polytheism]. (6:121)

5. Not Allowed to doubt the source of the Quran (Allah is the source)
--> need to believe all of the Quran came from Allah, with no input from the Rasul(saw) or Angel Jibreel
Zamakhshari: (48:27)

6. Not Allowed to doubt its applicability for past/present/future of the Qura’an (its relevance)
