Notes: Why Islam will Dominate the Future - Shaikh Faisal

by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(Live from a conference in Jamaica)
(evening dars 4.10.11)
Excerpted from his book, Islam: The Religion of the Future

Reasons why Islam will dominate the future:

They intend to put out the Light of Allah (i.e. the religion of Islam, this Qur'an, and Prophet Muhammad) with their mouths. But Allah will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it). 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 Muhammad) hate (it). (61:8-9)

And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion (Islamic Monotheism) if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever." (2:217)

-->The conflict between haqq and batil (truth and falsehood) is a never-ending battle so you can expect a long haul because there are two parties (hizb-us-shaytan and hizb-Allah)

1) Islamic Concept of God is the only correct understanding
Only the Muslim understands who Allah is.  Everybody else Insults Allah
Jews and Christians lie about God [Allah '(swt)]
Jews accuse Allah of being poor:
Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" (3:181)
Christians say Allah begot a son an animal act:
When Jesus comes he will abolish the Jizy–only 2 options: embrace Islam or Die
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)

112. Surah Al-Ikhlaas or At-Tauhid (The Purity
1. Say (O Muhammad): "He is Allah, (the) One.
2. "Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks).
3. "He begets not, nor was He begotten;

You don’t insult Allah and you describe Allah with his 99 names/attributes (Tawheed Al asma wal Sifaat) and don’t use any names he doesn’t use to describe himself. 
“Allahus samad” means Allah‘tala has no weakness (does not get old, does not tire, or forget, or make mistakes).  When you give Allah swt the qualities of a man, you become a pagan

We are the only ones who single out Allah for our and we don’t pray thru any intermediaries to reach Allah, this is shirk and paganism

2) Islam coincides with all your natural instincts
-- Unlike communism which goes against man's instinct to own property and also goes against man's instinct to believe in god

So set you (O Muhammad (saw) your face towards the religion (of pure Islamic Monotheism) Hanif (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) (30:30)

-- Capitalism goes against the instinct to have concern for other people, even u have a lot f wealth ur conscience will kill you.  Capitalism causes injustice: in the most wealthy countries, people freeze to death in winter and eat from garbage!

And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid] and spend them not in the Way of Allah, announce unto them a painful torment. (9:34)

--Polygamy goes with human nature (monogamy is not human nature for a man) -The infidels allow zina but outlaw marriage

And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan-girls then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice. 4:3

-They make what is haraam, halal and what is halal they make, haraam
-In Daar ul-harb - the judge who puts someone in jail for driving & drink, also issues the permit for someone to sell the alcohol!
-The same judge who puts a man in prison for some crime, he is the same man who gives the permit to someone to open a zina shop
And say: "Truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism or this Qur'an or Jihad against polytheists) has come and Batil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism, etc.) has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish." (17:81)

3) The Holy Qur’an is a Perfect Book (Mother of All Miracles)
Allah is the Author of the Quran and Allah is not the author of confusion
The Holy Qur’an has no contradictions.  No scientist in the world can accuse it of contradicting science or common sense. Not one verse in the Qur'an contradicts itself.

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein many a contradiction. 4:82

The Bible turns people into atheists because it contradicts itself, science and common sense (Leviticus 11:6)
He has set loosed the two seas, the salt water and the sweet meeting together, between them is a barrier which none can transgress. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you deny. (55:19-21)

Quran is easy to memorize and revealed in a poetic form
Qur’an is suitable for implementation in the past, present and future
Qur’an has accurate predictions

The Romans have been defeated. In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians) (30:2-4)

111. Surah Al-Masad (The Palm Fiber) -->Abu Lahab could never take his shahada
1. Perish the two hands of Abu Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he!
2. His wealth and his children (etc.) will not benefit him!
3. He will be burnt in a Fire of blazing flames!
4. And his wife too, who carries wood (thorns of Sadan which she used to put on the way of the Prophet, or use to slander him).

Qur’an is a book of science, history, and psychology
Qur'an is a book of grammar, the textbook of the Arabic language

Allah revealed the most sacred book, The Holy Qur’an in the Best language, the Arabic Language, with his closest Angel, Gabriel,To his favorite prophet Muhammad, In the holiest month Ramadan, in the mosts sacred city, Holy Makkah
Therefore no one is allowed to prefer any language over the Arabic language

4) The Muslims Believe in All the Prophets
Everybody else accepts some prophets and rejects some prophets
If you reject one prophet, you are guilty of rejecting all prophets
Jesus will come: to kill the swine, Break the cross (because Christianity is a fake religion) Kill dajjal, to killmagog and magog, to abolish the jizya.  Either you accept Islam or you die.
Because when u reject Muhammad u reject Jesus

5) Islam wages war on poverty (with zakat)
We take from the rich and give to poor in the name of zakat
The kuffar take from the poor and give to the rich in the name of interest

6) Our brotherhood and sisterhood is tight
Islam knows no land, language or label. No racism, tribalism, or nationalism.
No ism or schism

7) Universality of Islam (Islam knows no race)
And We have sent you (O Muhammad) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).(21:107)
Litvinenko was a KGB officer who embraced Islam but the Russian gov't killed him

8) Islam shows Respect to women
The first person to embrace Islam was a woman: his wife Khadijah
The first person to die for Islam was a woman: Sumayyah
The greatest scholar of Islam was a woman: Ayesha
The closest person to the prophet was a woman: his daughter Fathima
One of the fiercest fighters was a woman: Umm Ammara
One of the fiercest fighters on horse-back was a woman: Khawla Bint Al-Aswar
But the infidels have no respect for women: use them as a naked body to advertise ***Women are embracing Islam by a rate of 10 to 1***

9) Justice System of Islam
The Rasool (saws) said if my own daughter steals, I'd cut off her hand (no one is above the law)

10) We are a Balanced Nation
-- Muslims are between the Jews and Christains (one insults Jesus/ the other worships Jesus)
-- Muslims are between the priests and the gigolo (one is celebrate/ the other beds many women)
-- Muslims are between the spiritualist and materialist (one completely abandons the dunya/ the other is completely immersed in chasing the dunya)
