Notes: Kufr in Perspective: (23 things that make you become a kaafir)- Shaikh Faisal

Kufr in Perspective:
(23 things that make you become a kaafir)
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars 4.16.11)

13. To insult Allah 'tala
--If you insult Allah, this makes you a kaafir (even if you have a calamity).  When good befalls you, you shud be grateful and when bad befalls you, you should have sabr

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.). Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." (2:155-156)

Calamities are there to test us.  The believer says: “Inna lillahi inna illahi rajioon”--> from Allah we came and to Allah we will return

Allah 'tala wont leave us alone without testing us as he tested those before us - this shows who will be faithful

Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe," and will not be tested.  And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test). (29:2-3)

-Allah 'tala already knows who are real and who are fake, but He tests people to expose who are the real believers to the rest of the Ummah
-There is nothing in the Quran/Sunnah that tells you that you have to be pleased with qadr, but you must be patient with qadr.  (Qadr-Allah's predestined will)
-Allah doest put on us a burden more than we can bear
Ibn Taymiyyah - you don’t have to be pleased with qadr, you must be patient with qadr

14. If you insult Muhammad (saws) you'll be a kaafir
If you insult 3 things: Allah 'tala, the Prophet (saws), or the Holy Qur'an – your head is gone; there may be some leniency if you turn yourself in
-You cannot carry out Shariah law in daar ul harb (you're living behind enemy lines)
-Daar ul kufr (land of Disbelief)- no Shariah but they are not killing Muslims  (eg. Ethiopia at the time of the Prophet.  it was not an Islamic state but they didn't hurt Muslims)
-Daar ul harb (Land of War)- no Sharia and they are killing Muslims  (eg. Makkah at the time of the Prophet)
-Daar ul Islam (Land of Islam)- where there is Eeman and the Sharia is being implemented  (eg. Madinah at the time of the prophet)
-Fiqh ul waqi has changed:
Ethiopia is no longer a friendly state, is collecting US dollars to slaughter Muslims. 
Makkah was conquered and was Islamic, Prophet said: no more hijah, but today Makkah and Madina are both daar ul harb.  The only way to liberate them is to topple the House of Saud and implement Shariah (like Jerusalem - controlled by kuffar, kaafir asli-the original kaafirs)

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikun, and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud. (5:82)

Makkah, Madina, Jerusalem = all are daar ul harb (Caliphate is their only hope)

"There is no Hijra (i.e. migration) (from Mecca to Medina) after the Conquest (of Mecca), but Jihad and good intention remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately. [Bukhari vol.4,book.52,no.42]

You are not allowed to insult any other prophet beside Muhammad or the Sahabas (esp. Abu Bakr and Umar)

15. If you insult an angel, you become a kaafir
-Jibreel was rejected by the Jews for revealing Qur'an to Muhammad (saws) because
-Jibreel was not an informant - he was used by Allah 'tala so hating Jibreel is the same as hating Allah (swt)

Whoever is an enemy to Allah, His Angels, His Messengers, Jibrael (Gabriel) and Mikael (Michael), then verily, Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers." (2:98)
-
16. If you believe that Allah (swt) appeared on earth as a man
(eg. Farrakhan believes that Allah appeared in the form of Master Farad Muhammad and he keeps changing/believes his Islam is trial and errot)
Christians believes God appeared on earth in the form of Jesus
Allah 'tala never came on earth in the form of a man

It is not given to any human being that Allah should speak to him unless (it be) by Inspiration, or from behind a veil, or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise. (42:51)

Allah's speaks in 3 ways: inspiration (wahhi), from behind a veil (Allah's hijab is "light") or by way of an angel

Imam Muslim narrated from Abu Dhar that he asked the Messenger of Allah "Did you see thy Lord? He (the Prophet) said: He is a light; How could I see Him?" In another narration the Prophet said: "I saw the light only"

Christians claim Jesus was God. Obviously, Jesus was not God on earth because he didn't know many things

The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs (Mark 11:12-13)

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matt 24:36)

And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form (John 5:37)

Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and among Al-Mushrikun, were not going to leave (their disbelief) until there came to them clear evidence. (98:1)

We need to give dawah and establish the hujjah so people will come to Islam - Islam, which is the fastest growing religion in the world today
clear proof – bayannah

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed ) hate (it). (61:9)

Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them). (87:9)

17. If you describe Allah tala w/ human qualities
-Allah doesn’t rest and He can not beget a son
-it is haraam for Allah(swt) to tell a lie or oppress people, or break a promise
This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves (3:182)

-Allah says "be and it is "
But Jacob stayed behind by himself, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. When the man saw that he couldn't get the best of Jacob as they wrestled, he deliberately threw Jacob's hip out of joint. The man said, "Let me go; it's daybreak." "I'm not letting you go 'til you bless me." The man said, "What's your name?" He answered, "Jacob." The man said, "But no longer. Your name is no longer Jacob. From now on it's Israel (God-Wrestler); you've wrestled with God and you've come through." (Genesis 24-28)

SHIITE LIES
-“Allah often lies and does mistakes”[Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]
-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)
-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)
-Imam Ali is God. (Jila-ul-A'yoon, Vol. 2, p. 66)

Verily, Allah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things). (31:34)

5 things only Allah swt knows:
1. Land you'll die
2. The weather conditions
3. Nature of a Mother's Womb
4. Judgment Day
5. What you’ll earn tomorrow

Say (O Muhammad ): "I possess no power of benefit or hurt to myself except as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghaib (unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings unto people who believe." (7:188)

Verily, We give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before (them), and their traces [their footsteps and walking on the earth with their legs to the mosques for the five compulsory congregational prayers, Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) and all other good and evil they did, and that which they leave behind], and all things We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book. (36:12)

19. To make what is haraam, halal
If a Shaikh makes zina/ khamar/ riba halal, he becomes a kaafir - if you legislate what is haraam to be halal, you're a kaafir
Haraam meat - name of idol mentioned @ time of slaughter (you become a kaafir if you eat it)

Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal), for sure it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allah). And certainly, the Shayatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [by making Al-Maytatah (a dead animal) legal by eating it], then you would indeed be Mushrikun (6:121)
~~~Your Shariah is your Ibaadah~~~

20. To believe in secularism - separate Islam from politics
-There is NO deity worthy of worship except ALLAH
-Tablighi Jammat are fools: “fear Allah, don’t talk politics in the masjid.”  They are jahil about tawheed.  Islam is the highest level of politics 

21. If you believe in democracy
-Demoocracy: government “of the people, for the people and by the people”>
Al Burooj (Surah 85)
-We believe in a Theocracy (God is Allah) nor Democracy (God is hawa-evil desires)
SHIITE - Man can have nikah with man, his mother, sister and daughter too (Firqa-ul-shiat Abi-muhammed-ul-Hasan-bin-Moosa)
In UK, when men marry men, they call them "sir"

22. If you spy for the kuffar - you become a kaafir.
-if you spy, tou hate Islam and you're undermining Islam
O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). (5:51)

23. To dismantle the Shariah of Allah tala, you become a kaafir
- When a Muslim ruler takes Riba or commits zina, he is still a Muslim, but when he legitimize Riba or gives permission to open a brothel, he becomes a kaafir
Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light, by which the prophets who surrendered (unto Allah) judged the Jews, and the rabbis and the priests (judged) by such of Allah's Scripture as they were bidden to observe, and thereunto were they witnesses. So fear not mankind, but fear Me. And barter not My revelations for a little gain. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are disbelievers. (5:44)

24. If you give wala to the taghoot, you become a kaafir

25. If you refuse to learn the deen of Allah swt
