Notes: Importance of Making Takfeer

Importance of Takfeer
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars 4.13.11)

The above ayat shows the importance of holding onto Islam and shows the possibility of dying outside the fold of Islam

O you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah. (3:102)

Rasul (saw) one of the signs of the last day: a man will go to sleep as a Muslim and wake up as a kaafir selling his deen for the pomp and glitter of the world

Takfeer-necessary to separate the kuffar from the believers

Thus We have made you [true Muslims - real believers of Islamic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a Wasat (just) (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad ) be a witness over you (2-143)

“We cannot make takfir” “We are not here to judge” –Murji/Khawarij
“We are the witnesses of Allah (swt) on earth” -ASWJ

Noah gave dawah for 950 years--> first people to do shirk were the people of Noah
*on Day of Judgment, the people of Noah will deny that anyone gave them the dawah, but we will be witnesses against them because we read it in the Qur’an!
*on Day of Judgment, Quam Lut will deny saying no one told us homosexuality is wrong, but we will be witnesses against them because we read it in the Quran!
The people of Saleh who hamstrung the Camel will deny saying no one told us we did wrong, but we will be witnesses against them!
We, the Ummah of Muhammad, will be witnesses against all the previous nations!

Rasul (saw): anyone on whom 3 Muslims testify that he was a good person will enter the paradise, so we were commanded by Allah to judge
We are here to Judge:
And so judge (you O Muhammad ) between them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad ) far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to you. (5:49)

This is a religion of justice - so don’t con your Muslim brother by way of convincing speech.  You will have to repay with your good deeds on Day of Judgment. 
The only currency acceptable on the DOJ is good deeds

That Day shall a man flee from his brother. And from his mother and his father, And from his wife and his children. Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others (80:34-37)

"I am only a human being, and opponents come to me (to settle their problems); maybe someone amongst you can present his case more eloquently than the other, whereby I may consider him true and give a verdict in his favor. So, If I give the right of a Muslim to another by mistake, then it is really a portion of (Hell) Fire, he has the option to take or give up (before the Day of Resurrection)." [Bukhari, vol.3, no.638]

Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful (3:104)

How on earth can we command good if He don’t judge the action as good?
How on earth can we forbid evil if He don’t judge the action as evil?
To judge an action as good/evil is a pre-requisite before commanding good/evil

If you fear a breach between them twain (the man and his wife), appoint (two) arbitrators, one from his family and the other from her's; if they both wish for peace, Allah will cause their reconciliation. Indeed Allah is Ever All-Knower, Well-Acquainted with all things. (4:35)

Khawrij at time of Ali said: cant use human being as judges- this is insane!
And what is more important to keep Sahabahs from killing each other or saving a marriage?

And so judge (you O Muhammad ) between them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad ) far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to you. (5:49)

Rasul (saw) said: whatsoever the Muslim sees as good, Allah sees as good; whatsoever the Muslim sees as evil, Allah sees as evil.  You are the witnesses of Allah on earth
Rasul (saws) did not say mankind is the witnesses of Allah on earth!
The pre-requisite for having furqan (in order to judge) is taqwa

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allah, He will grant you Furqan a criterion [(to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. making a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you, and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty. (8:29)

We judge according to Qur’an / Sunnah, not according to our own whims and manmade isms/schisms

-->Takfeer- action of differencing between Muslim and kaafir
The man who says you can’t judge is in fact very judgmental (his yardstick for judging is dunya)

1. Can’t marry your Muslim daughter to a kaafir
O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them. (60-10)

2. Kaafirs cannot inherit the property of the Muslims
--you a Muslim can accept inheritance from your kaafir parents, this is considered a gift

3. Kaafirs cannot enter Makkah or Madinah
--Rasul(saw) said drive out the Jews / Christians from the Arabian Peninsula
No two religions can exist on the Arabian Peninsula
''Two deens shall not co-exist in the Arabian Peninsula'' [Al-Muwatta 45, 18]
--the longer you speed in the company of shaykhs the more Hadith you will learn!
Secret police so Shaikhs cannot speak openly in the classroom what goes on in the country
Albani said this is the greatest destruction for the Muslim Ummah to have crusaders in the holy land--> untold fatwas of Albani:
^^ watch after dars--> don’t offend the shaikh!!!
You cannot have disbelievers in the holy land

4. Kaafirs cannot gain access to the strategic info of the Islamic state
Musta'sim didn’t practice al wala wal bara.  He took Shites, the worst enemies of Allah as friends and they betrayed him--> The Mongols slaughtered the Muslims, they raped the women, turned masjids into stables for their horses, they ransacked the libraries and dumber the books, many of the classical works into the river so the river turned black; not unlike what the crusaders did/doing today!

Shias say: Every prophet came to establish justice on Earth. His aim was also to establish justice but he was not successful. The same is the position of the Seal of the Prophets who came to reform human society and establish justice but failed during his lifetime.' (Ittihad wa-yak-jihati:15)
“Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]
The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)
Ali Ibn Abi Talib said that he once slept with the prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h and his wife Ayesha in one bed, and under one cover, then the prophet woke up to pray, and left them together [ Ali and Ayesha ] in the same bed, under the same cover" [Bihaar al-Anwar vol. 40, p. 2]
Aisha is accused of committing adultery. (Quran Majeed by Maqbool Hussain Dehlevi, p. 840)

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" (3:181)

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) the wife of the Prophet ) are a group among you (24-11)

What is najd? Scholars of Riyadh referred to as Ulemah of Najd
Ifk = great slander
Shiites slander Allah (swt), the Rasool (saws) and Aisha (ra)

5. A Muslim cannot be killed for the sake a kaafir
“A Muslim is not to be killed for a Kafir (unbeliever)” [Ahmad, Bukhari, An-Nasa’i]
--a Muslim has to pay blood money if he kills a kaafir wrongfully but you cannot kill a Muslim for the sake of kaafir because the kaafir was already dead and all the Muslim did was finish him off
--if the father killed his daughter/son for fornication (there is no honor killing in Islam). The punishment for fornication is 100 lashes but you cannot kill the father for his honor killing
--No one dies of lashing in the Islamic state; the purpose is not to inflict pain but humiliation

3 Types of Punishment
1) Painful punishment- adab aleem
2) Dreadful punishment- adab adheem
3) Humiliating punishment- adab muheen
khabaar Munkar - Hadith rejected because it contradicts a strong Hadith

6. For the sake of al Wala wal Bara
--You need to know who is a Muslim for the sake of Wala wal Bara (you  have to give loyalty/preference to your muslim brother)
When a cancer emerges in the Ummah, you need to send someone to debate/ disgrace them. Those who accept you leave alone/ those who reject you massacre them (like what Ali did to the Khwarij). 
Khwarij-friendly towards the kuffar/hate the Muslims
Khwarij of today- call the mujahideen terrorists, but they are fighting to bring back the glory days of Islam fighting to liberate land and man - balad and ibad
--> our natural resources are being plundered and our people slaughtered/raped
Who are the Khawarij? Who are going to be condemned to hell-fire?
May Allah help us see the glory days of Islam, inshaAllah

7. You have to topple the leaders if you see clear kuffar. 
Saudi Salafis--> Qadr Allah that we have these apostate tyrants over our heads
(Jabriyyah) like the pagans of Arabia who blamed Qadr for their shirk!
--> Saudi Salafis/MADkhalis-Murji/liberal with the leaders- Khawarij / harsh towards the Muslim / Mutazalites / rationalist with the scholars because they know where their paycheck comes from, they are chasing the dunya, may Allah curse them

Say (O Muhammad to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swine, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); (5-60)

What is difference between Saudi Salafis and MADkhalis? They are the same
We’re Salafis--> we are Salafi Jihadi (practice Islam as practiced by the Sahabahs, Allahu Akbar!)
We don’t believe in democracy, we believe in Sharia and Jihad!
We don’t cement the thrones of apostate regimes!
We believe as Ibn Taymiyyah, we don’t bow down to man-made laws and isms/schisms
We bow down only to Allah 'talah!
We use Sunnah to fight Bid'ah not use Bid'ah to fight Sunnah!

8. When there is a Jihad, we need to know who to kill
--important to know who is a Muslim and who is a kaafir
Shaytan came to the Sahabah on the Battle of Uhud and said look kuffar behind you and they killed fellow Muslims!

9. Kaafirs cannot be prayed over
--> it is haraam to pray over someone who died as munafiqeen (nifaq akbar/asghar: major/minor hypocrisy)

And never (O Muhammad ) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allah and His Messenger) (9:84)

Their is difference between shirk akbar and shirk asghar (otherwise you will become a Murji or a Khawarij)

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. (9:11)

Hudaifa knew all the hypocrites in Madinah (he was the keeper of secrets for Rasul (saw)

10. When a kaafir dies, it is haraam for you to bury him in the graveyard of the Muslims or vice versa

QUESTION and ANASWERS after dars
1 If someone believes (like Barelvis) that the Prophet (SAW) can see and hear what we do and that Allah has given him these powers can we make takfir on such people.
2 There are around 80 million people in Iran living in the same condition almost as North Korea (Isolated from true knowledge) - are they all kaafirs ?
3 is it okay for someone to a woman to wear a gold pendant that says Allah on it
4 Please explain how can du'a change Qadar?
5 I've never heard of the Mujahideen nor jihad in any mosque in the 5 years I've been a Muslim. Can you elaborate on way this is.
