Tafseer Surah Mulk: (The Kuffar are Delusional)
Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars 4.24.11)
Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. (4:145)
--Allah swt created 7 heavens and 7 hells ... the munafiqeen will be in the bottom
In case you are not convinced, Allaah ‘tala tells you too look again and again!
--the anatomy of a human: can you think of a better design than the design of a human being?
--you were intelligently designed
--to believe in the existence of Allaah - has implications
--Allaah challenges man: look at My creation!
This is the creation of Allah. So show Me that which those (whom you worship), besides Him have created. Nay, the Zalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers and those who do not believe in the Oneness of Allah) are in plain error. (31:11)
Tawheed al Rububiyyah - only the One Who Creates deserves to be worshiped
--you are allowed to use one tawheed for hujjat as evidence;
--you are not allowed to slide one tawheed under another and claim they mean the same thing
--the worst con artist is the one who cons you in regards to your deen
Allah created the stars for 3 reasons:
1. to beautify the sky
2. for use as missiles
3. to guide you at night when you travel
--We DO NOT believe in omens or superstition ~ we believe in Qadr (Allah tala’s will)
--Muslims, Christians and Jews: believe in the same God
--however, only the Muslims concept is accepted by Allaah
--anyone can believe in Allah ‘tala; the special person refutes taghoot
Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account. (3:19)
And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (3:85)
“Allah created these stars for three reasons: (i) To adorn the heaven, (ii) as missiles against the devils and (ii) as signs by which (the traveler) may be guided; and so whoever claims more than this for them has is emoneous and has lost his reward (on the Day of Resurrection) and taken upon himself that of which he has no knowledge." [Bukhari]
--if you magnify the stars beyond their limit, you may fall into shirk
--Tawheed Asma wal Siffat (describing Allaah with His names and attributes)
1. “Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things”
--you are a Muslim - you refuse to describe Allaah ‘tala with human qualities!
Glorified be your Lord, the Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they attribute unto Him! And peace be on the Messengers! And all the praise and thanks be to Allah, Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (37:180-182)
--Allaah‘tala is above all the imperfect attributes the kuffar give to Him
The Shia believes that Allaah tells lies!
-“Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]
-Aisha (ra) had an affair - The Shia believe that at the time of Mahdi’s return Imam Mahdi will resurrect Aisha (Prophet Mohammad’s wife) and execute the law of Hudud on her, for committing Zina (adultery) during her marriage. (Al-Anwar Al-Numaniyah, vol. 1, p. 161, Tafsir al-Shafi, vol. 2, p. 108, Haq al-Yaqeen, vol. 2, p. 256, Hayat al-Qulub, vol. 2, p. 611)
-- Only the Muslim does not describe Allaah with human / imperfect qualities
You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. (3:110)
3 reasons Muhammad (saws) said we're the best ummat:
1. we command the good
2. we forbid the evil
3. we believe in Allah (swt)
Allaah ‘tala has made things forbidden for Him
1. It is haraam for Allaah to oppress people
This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves. (3:182)
2. It is haraam for Allaah to break His promises
"Our Lord! Grant us what You promised unto us through Your Messengers and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection, for You never break (Your) Promise." (3:194)
The present Qur'an is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)
3. It is haraam for Allaah to beget a son
He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything (6:101)
4. It is not possible for Allaah to forget
They forgot Allaah, so Allaah forgot them (the word forget means “ignored”)
“He hypocrites, men and women, are from one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief and polytheism of all kinds and all that Islam has forbidden), and forbid (people) from Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and they close their hands [from giving (spending in Allah's Cause) alms, etc.]. They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (9:67)
-- We will not take it literal: They ignored Allaah, so Allaah ignored them
--We don’t take the Qur'an literally
And to Allah belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn yourselves or your faces there is the Face of Allah (and He is High above, over His Throne). Surely! Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing (2:115)
--no one takes the Qur’an more literal than the Sufis
--in reply to them saying that we take the Qur'an literally
Sufis use Al Baqarah 2:115 to say that Allaah is everywhere.
--He swt is not everywhere - He is on His Arsh!
--the munafiqh changes according to what suits his desires (false Aqeedah )
--you are not allowed to describe Allaah with that which He did not ascribe for Himself
--Tawheed Asma' wa siffat
--Muslims are the only ones who believes in ALL the Prophets
--Allaah said: You are the Best UMMAH
--we hear and we obey
The Messenger (Muhammad SAW) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. They say, "We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers" - and they say, "We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all)." (2:285)
--we would not insult our kaafir neighbor as the kuffar insult our Rasool (saws)
--when one insults the Rasool: they actually insult Allaah ‘tala
You (O Muhammad SAW) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW ), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful. (58:22)
-- the angel (keeper of the hell fire) will ask: "did no warner come to you"?
-- Khalid Ibn Waleed - used to beat Ikramah (his best friend) for him to come to Islam
7. When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath as it blazes forth.
8. It almost bursts up with fury. Every time a group is cast therein, its keeper will ask: "Did no warner come to you?"
9. They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we belied him and said: 'Allah never sent down anything (of revelation), you are only in great error.'"
IGNORANCE is not an excuse for worshiping a false deity
--the truth is out there: it is incumbent on you to find the truth
--if you do not seek the truth : you have no excuse
And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this." (7:172)
So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq-illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. (30:30)
Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allah is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no Ilah (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped) but One Ilah (God -Allah). And if they cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall the disbelievers among them. (5:73)
--the fire is 70 times hotter than the fire you use to cook
10.And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!"
--they admit that they did not use their aql (intellect)
--when you ask a kaafir to do something for you: they will ask you "what is in it for ME"?
--they admit they do not think with their aql : question : what did they think with?
--they think with their bellies and their private parts
--they cling on to shirk because it gives them what they want
10 reasons people refuse to take Shahadah
1. they are proud and arrogant
2. the blind following of their ancestors
3. envy (they don’t want to swell the ranks of the Muslims)
4. they are addicted to their evil and corrupted desires
(these people complain and claim: Islam is too restrictive)
(why are so many kuffar living on Prozac and therapy!)
(suicide and nervous breakdown are rife)
5. social pressure (they are afraid of what people will say)
"Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend! (25:28)
- you chose the hell fire over a friend!!!
6. they belong to a satanic organization, eg. Free Masons or Illuminati
(Illuminati: the ones who "rule the world" - the elite of the Free Masons)
(they have already given their souls to iblees /satan)
7. they fear being disinherited
8. they are loyal to a fault : eg. heritage
9. they find the dress code too strict (exclusive to women)
--in Christianity there is no longer a dress code
10. they find the Islamic acts of ibadah (worship) too difficult / tiring
--they complain about Ramadan and Fajr: Islamic Fitrah / cleanliness
--they find it laborious (requiring much work, exertion, or perseverance)
--a laborious undertaking
When giving dawah: teach Tawheed first
Your aql (intellect) tells you that Allaah exists
And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!" (67:10)
--it is convenient to cling on to false beliefs: kufr is convenient
--people also complain about hajj
--how could one travel in such heat to make hajj ?
--it is easy to practice kufr
--it is dangerous to marry a Christian woman:
----the children will choose Christianity over Islam
11. Then they will confess their sin.
12. So, away with the dwellers of the blazing Fire
“Whereof do they question one another? (It is) of the awful tidings, Concerning which they are in disagreement. Nay, but they will come to know! Nay, again, but they will come to know! Have We not made the earth an expanse, And the high hills bulwarks? (78:1-7)
Mulk 67:16 - This ayah is of particular importance to us
--Allaah declares He IS above the heavens
16. Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, then behold it shakes (as in an earthquake)?
17. Or do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not send against you a violent whirlwind? Then you shall know how (terrible) has been My Warning?
Sects who don’t believe Allah tala is on His Arsh:
Tablighi, Deobandi, Mutazalites, Ashari, Maturidi, Shia, Barelvis, Habashi
--a man can become so pious that he becomes Allaah: wahdat al wajuud
And indeed We have created man, and We know what his ownself whispers to him. And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge). (50:16)
--Ibn Arabi is the one who came with this Aqeedah of wahdat al wujud
And to Allah belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn yourselves or your faces there is the Face of Allah (and He is High above, over His Throne). Surely! Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing. (2:115)
--they use this to say Allaah is everywhere
--they do not practice what they preach!
--The slave girl pointed to the heavens to indicate where Allaah Is
--the Rasool (saws) ordered to set her free
(They took to flight because of their) arrogance in the land and their plotting of evil. But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it. Then, can they expect anything (else), but the Sunnah (way of dealing) of the peoples of old? So no change will you find in Allah's Sunnah (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in Allah's Sunnah (way of dealing). (35:43)
“the Prophet (SAW) then asked her, "Where is Allaah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet (SAW) asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allaah’s Messenger", so the Prophet (SAW) said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer." [Saheeh Muslim, Vol 1, Hadith 1094]
--there is no change in the Sunnah of Allaah
--Allaah has always destroyed mushrikeen and munafiqeen with natural disasters
18. And verily those before them denied, then (see) the manner of My wrath (with them)!
19. “They not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything.”
=”Titanic” (the ship that struck an iceberg in the early 1900’s) means: the Greek god of the
sea (that ship sailed w/o enough lifeboats because they were so arrogant to say Allah can’t
even sink their ship
=”Challenger” (spaceship that exploded in the sky within minutes of taking off (in the middle 1980’s) -- the kuffar want to compete w/ the Creator, Allah tala and say it can’t blow up
**Allaah is telling u : nothing can sail or fly unless by the will of Allaah**
20. Who is he besides the Most Beneficent that can be an army to you to help you? The disbelievers are in nothing but delusion.
--The kuffar call themselves, “Superpower” – the word is kufr because they were conquered
in Afghanistan; US deludes themselves into thinking they can succeed where Russia failed
--the kuffar have Tawwakul in their armies (w/ WMD, they think they can’t be conquered)
--we say: “laa howla wa la quwatta ila bilaah”
--“there is no might nor power except with Allaah (tala)”
--when a person has pride, he becomes blind
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). (4:76)
21. Who is he that can provide for you if He should withhold His provision? Nay, but they continue to be in pride, and (they) flee (from the truth).
***The dunya is a Paradise for the kuffar but a prison for the believers***
Questions and Answers after the dars:
Q1: Shaikh, I was told by an imam who preaches kufr and democracy from the mimbar, that it is haraam to speak to the congregation after jummat has ended, is this true and if he is preaching haraam, am I wrong to address the jummat telling them the truth if he insists on doing this and I have told him privately?

ANSWER 7 - ALLAH IS IN HEAVEN --CHRISTIANITY (BECAUSE HE IS ON HIS ARSH) - IT WAS NOT TRANSLATED PROPERLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT EXPERTS IN AQEEDAH
EXAMPLE: BILAL PHILIP’S WIFE - SHE WAS TEACHING ENGLISH THEN STOPPED TO BECOME FLUENT IN ARABIC – WHY? SHE WANTED TO TRANSLATE THE QUR'AN HERSELF!
SEE: SURAH 15:26 - Adam was created of black mud ... not "smooth mud" (as they claim) SO IT’S EASY FOR THEM TO MIS-STATE THE QUR’AN
Q8: I am a revert - am I allowed to drop off my kaafir sister to an Easter party if I give her dawah on the way to dropping her off to the party? (I am not attending the party)?

--to question this, is a curse
--Imam Malik said the word ON is known by HOW He is - is UNKNOWN
