Challenges Facing Muslim Youth (intro) - Sh Faisal

Intro: Challenges Facing The Muslim Youths
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars 5.18.11)


Muslims have Six (6) Sacred Possessions
1. Life
2. Wealth
3. Honour
4. Lineage
5. Knowledge
6. Deen

It’s not just youths who are affected by today’s challenges; adults are affected, too.
--youths have raging hormones, so they are more affected by some challenges
--it is more difficult to hang on to Islam for the youths

There are seven (7) people who will be under the Shade of ALLAH

“…a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah's sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says 'I fear Allah', a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.' Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari Vol.1, p.356, no.629 & Sahih Muslim Vol.2, p.493, no.2248

--if a man and wife love each other for the sake of ALLAH, they will be under the Shade of Allah, also.

You should always be suspicious of a person who writes a book, but does not quote Hadith

--maybe he is a Parvazi (someone who says they only believe Qur’an but not Hadith)

Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful 3:31

--if you are a follower of Qur’an, you would follow Hadith also, as Allah commanded many times
--the Parvazi is a liar, as he does not follow the Qur’an in this matter
--whenever you debate the kuffar, munafiqeen, or deviants, you must video the debate:
--because each will claim victory w/o proof

Muslims are facing challenges because of the society where they live
--the more un-Islamic the society, the more diverse and many problems become
--there are 2 types of Muslims: those who you invite to Paradise
--and those who you need to drag to Paradise
--unfortunately, the majority of Muslims need to be dragged to Paradise
--a man will admit to Allah swt that he wanted to go to brothels, drink alcohol ,etc.
--but the Muslims established Shariah so they could not

Our Six sacred possessions: only in Islamic state these are protected and guarded


And there is for you in legal retribution [saving of] life, O you [people] of understanding, that you may become righteous. (2:179)

--we carry out capital punishment against murderers and we do not apologies for it!
--when a man who wants to murder knows he will be killed, he will abstain
--(capital punishment) saves his life and the life of his brother
--you are not allowed to apologize to kuffar about Islamic punishment
--you are not allowed to pick up weapon against your brother even in jest

South African story:

--a Muslim brother with a gun: Shaikh asked to look at the gun; the brother smiled, took the barrel out

Narrated By Al-Ahnaf bin Qais: While I was going to help this man ('Ali Ibn Abi Talib), Abu Bakra met me and asked, "Where are you going?" I replied, "I am going to help that person." He said, "Go back for I have heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'When two Muslims fight (meet) each other with their swords, both the murderer as well as the murdered will go to Hell-fire.' I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! It is all right for the murderer but what about the murdered one?' Allah's Apostle replied, “He surely had the intention to kill his companion.” Bukhari - Volume 1, Book 2, Belief (Hadith 030)

Hadith says they will both end up in Hellfire: those who take up arms together.
--only in Islamic state is your life protected
--when Muawaiya was Caliph, a man killed another, when the toddler of the man grew up, Muawaiya went to him and asked what to do with the man who killed his father.. he said he wanted him dead!

--Muawaiya prayed 1 rakah for Witr... the Rasool said to leave him to do this
--as he was a faqi' (a scholar of fiqh)
--the Shia likes to slander Muawaiya but he conquered many lands:
--what did the Shia ever do for Islam?
--the history books of Shiites are scandalous

There are four (4) pillars of Qadr:

1) knowledge
2) writing
3) divine will
4) creation

Shia lies and other liars

“Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

--Al muraabitoon: they can tell you the national currency of every country in the world

The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

-- Sufi group: Al muraabitoon

-- but they cannot tell you seven conditions of Shahadah
-- they pay attention to economics at expense of aqeedah

-- Hizb ut Tahrir pays attention to politics, not aqeedah
-- Deobandi pays attention to Hanafi fiqh, but not aqeedah

-- when a kaafir dies, his body and soul is condemned to the hell fire, forever

-- that is why abu Hanifa said you can sell alcohol to a kaafir

-- Abu Hanifa said that when a Christian gets ready to go to church,

-- if you help him in any way, you have apostated

Allah said, “co-operate in birr and taqwa “

-- Abu Hanifa used to make takfir on those who didn’t believe Allah is on His Arsh

Abu Mansoor al Maaturoodee

-- it was Abu Mansoor al Maaturoodee who gave them the creed that Allah is everywhere (audhubillah )

Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. 5:2

The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established. (20:5)

-- if the fire-worshipper is having his feast and you donate to him an egg,
-- you have become a kaafir: Abu Hanifa
-- The Christians say Allah begot a son, so if you give a Christmas card to a kaafir:
-- you have endorsed his aqeedah . : you have become a kaafir
-- Jimmy Swagart was forced to give up the word "begotten" he used "unique son" instead
-- this was in his debate with Ahmad Deedat
-- you are agreeing with the creed of the Christian when you do anything for their holidays
-- Tablighi and Deobandi, who say they follow Abu Hanifa (they are jahil about tawheed)
-- they only follow some of his fiqh
-- the Tablighi say: you cannot call the kaafir a kaafir because you don't know what is in his heart!
-- they also teach and believe in "democrazy"

Certainly! Allah will admit those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), while those who disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as cattle eat, and the Fire will be their abode. 47:12


The kuffar are so crazy about the pleasures of the flesh, they are bi-sexual so
--they can maximize the number of sexual partners they have !
--Some kuffar indulge in the pleasures of the flesh, like a cattle
--Obesity is not something Allah 'tala likes
-- big belly: sign of nifaq: 2 types of obesity: clinically obese (slightly overweight)
and morbidly obese so
overweight; they cannot move!
-- you are not allowed to marry a person who is morbidly obese

Documentary Shaikh Faisal saw while in the UK:

--"One Ton Man"
-- Allah does not like obesity
-- he weighs the same as a cow
-- how can you eat so much to weigh the same a cow ?

In UK prison (Belmarsh), Shaikh's story:

--there was a pedophile wing there
--they are not permitted to mix w/ other prisoners
--common criminals learn how to do evil in prison - they cover your face so you can't identify them
--Shaikh was locked up w/ all sorts of religions: they all hate pedophiles and will kill them
--even among common criminals, murderers, fraudsters. etc. there are some crimes they do not tolerate:
--they all hate pedophiles.
--if you rape a woman, they might beat you up but pedophiles are killed
--children who are abused blame their mothers: "why did you bring me up to be naive?"
--one reason not to let your kids play w/ kaafir friends


“Allah showers his mercy on the man who prevents others from backbiting”
-- The sister of Asma bint Abu Bakr: was walking: the Rasool saw, offered her a lift
-- it is halal to give sisters a lift : when they are in a situation of danger..

Hadith: Regardless, this Hadith makes me feel so “envious” of Asma Bint Abi Bakr because she had the honor of having none other than the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) stop what he was doing out of concern for her and offer her a ride home on his camel. Let us not forget another key point here that Asma was the daughter of the Prophet’s best friend and close companion, Abu Bakr (ra) and the older sister of his wife, Aisha [agreed]

-- she didn’t accept the lift as her husband was jealous over her
-- if you know your husband is jealous, you should turn down the offer
-- but you can accept the lift if absolutely necessary
-- the honour of a Muslim is so sacred 80 lashes is given to the slanderer
-- the slander of a woman: what about the slander of a man

And those who accuse chaste women, and produce not four witnesses, flog them with eighty stripes, and reject their testimony forever, they indeed are the Fasiqun (liars, rebellious, disobedient to Allah). 24:4

-- the honour of a Muslim regardless of male or female is sacred

-- ASWJ believes in qiyas. analogy.
-- the slander of a man is the same as that of a woman

--we extract our fiqh, from four sources: Quran , Sunnah, Qiyas, And Ijmaah
--some scholars say a 5th. Ijtihad

-- if a woman who asks for a divorce without a good reason will not enter Jannah

-- some say she will enter but not smell the fragrance
-- don't speak harshly to your parents

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. 17:23

-- Allah says do not say "uff" to your parents.. SUBHAN ALLAH
-- Dawood was Ibn Hanbal's student (he believed Qur'an was created)
-- You can beat your parents but do not say uff to them while saying that .. ?
-- Daud Dhaahiree: formed his own madhab

"If a woman asks her husband for a divorce, for no reason, then the smell of paradise is forbidden for her"

At-Tirmidhi narrated it; he said this is a Hasan Hadith

--Abu Hanifa said: look at sister's necks, face, and palm of her hands
--if you meet someone on the net, so you send a photo w/o hijab, you didn't do anything haraam
--according to
Hanbali fiqh) but after you meet, you can't marry then in person until
--you meet in person and wali vets the

-- if you find a car online, you can't buy the car till you test drive it (same thing w/ marriage)

-- vet (check person out properly)
-- the Rasool saw said, look at a girl before you marry her..
-- you can look at her in a knee-length dress
-- Daud Dhaahiree said :: peep at her in the shower!
-- no, not to peep at her in the shower (do not believe this ideology) = Dawood's madhab (shocking)

la howla wa la quwatta ila bilaah

--Daud Dhaahiree is actually ASWJ and his madhab was dying but ibn Hazm from Spain revived the madhab

--do not follow this please
--Daud A Dhaahiree madhab was dying out. : : ibn Hazm revived it
--another madhab of Laith ibn Saad (from Egypt) was said to be more knowledge than Imam Malik
Laith ibn Saad: was more knowledgeable than Imam Malik but no one revived his madhab after his death
--his fiqh was stronger than Imam Malik but no one gave his madhab the kiss of life
--an ocean of knowledge went to his grave w/ him
--if a scholar does not have students to keep madhab alive, the madhab will die with the scholar!
--When you die all your pious deeds cease with you
--sisters who have low self esteem: message to them: if you do not marry who will pray for you when you die!

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: A continuous charity, knowledge by which people derive benefit, pious son who prays for him.'' [Muslim].

-- some women are beautiful but they have low self esteem : that is from the shaytaan

Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah." And whoever takes Shaitan (Satan) as a Wali (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss. 4:119

-- FGM (female genital mutilation) is haraam

-- Allah created the woman .
--The Rasool saw, had 4 daughters: he did not practice "FGM" on any of his daughters

4) AQL (intellect)
-- when a man drinks khamr, he loses his aql : how can a husband and father be a man without aql
--if a man divorces his wife while drunk, the divorce is valid
-- a man will drink and kill his brother

HADITH: In Islam, if a person gives ‘talaq' jokingly then ‘talaq' will occur. There is a Hadith in Ibn-Majah, Abu Dawood and Tirmizi, “3 things which its reality is reality and its joke its reality. They are; Marriage, Divorce and Freeing of a slave.

Abu Hurairah (RA) reports that the Prophet (SAW) said that there are three things, which are counted as serious even if they were not intended seriously, and they are Nikah (Marriage), Talaq (Divorce) and Rajat (taking a wife back). Mishkaat P284 V2

The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. 5:33

Shaikh in Saudi Arabia:
--in Shariah law, if you pick a pocket you have a hand chopped off
--a man was crucified in 1990 ... he was hung till his body was swollen (he was a highway robber)
--when Shaikh was in Saudi Arabia. a man was crucified : they made an example out of him
--another student w/ Shaikh asked why they mentioned the dead man's tribe?
--a student asked why they mentioned his tribe?
--he was upset because the boy was from Ibn Hanbal's tribe
--we mention the tribe of those who do haraam, not b/c of a certain tribe, but because
--Allah 'tala mentioned Qureshi tribe so it was permissible to mention a tribe
--because we can have the best and worst of men from ONE tribe
--we don't apologize to the kuffar for practicing Shariah

US kuffar made something called "Armageddon" to scare their people

--films are made by Hollywood to scare the people
--the fear factor is a multi billion dollar business
--no one buys car alarms in Saudi but in UK you can be multi-millionaire
--fear factor: very lucrative
--INDEPENDENCE DAY - UNDER SEIGE - ENEMY OF THE STATE: these are movies to make people fearful
-- movies.. made by Americans to put fear in the hearts of ordinary people
--crack cocaine already invaded the US
--when woman is on drugs, she becomes a prostitute
--a man becomes a thief
--THIS is the reason for Shariah: to PREVENT crime
--we're not to have a friend on drugs
--we can't afford to have them as friends
--withdrawal syndrome can make them do all sorts of things (also called: cold turkey)
--they are shaitan and will steal from their mother for crack cocaine
-- a person who is going through cold turkey will even pimp his mother to get his crack

Shaikh in Capetown:
--the Muslims were shocked he arrived by car
--he broke up the journey in bits and pieces
--a sister has a son who was on drugs who stole her possessions (phone, laptop, microwave, etc)
--he stole her wedding jewels and that was IT !!
--the mother pinned him down on the floor and strangled him till he died
--a woman had a son who was on drugs . he stole everything !
--icing on the cake was stealing the wedding jewelry : she killed him by strangulation
--when she went to court, her attorney (solicitor) presented her case to the judge and said her son stole
--she had enough: the judge had compassion on her and released her
--the newspapers came down heavily on the judge, fearing that people would follow suit :


Shaytaan in human form is a person who is on drugs
--divorce them if you're married to them
-- they lie, break promises, borrow but never return , do not pray,
--PAGAD: people against gangsterism and drugs

--if a Muslim woman is home alone and her husband's best friend comes to the door
--she can NOT answer the door to him
-- a Muslim woman is not allowed to open the door to a non mahram : if your husband is not home :
-- the brother in law is death
-- The husband and the brother look alike :
--too easy to have affair w/ them

Rasulullah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) stated: “Brother in law is death.” Book 26, Number 5400, Imaam Muslim.

--you are not allowed to show your hair to the brother in law

--you can marry a brother in law after 4 mos and 10 days
--he is not mahram to you (too tempting)
--if someone asks to marry a widow before 4 mos and 10 days: it is HARAAM
--you can only hint but not propose (you can say "something good might come along")
-- you can not propose; but you can hint to a widow
--Prophet (saws) dropped a hint to Umm Salamah
--her husband migrated and her son went to battle so she chose her son
-- she made hijrah by foot, for 300 miles.
--this story is found in [Muslim, abu Dawud, Ahmad]

-- Umm Salamah, was very pious Sahaabi (wife of the prophet )

-- she was short
-- Umm Salamah was extremely pious
-- they used to tease her because she was short
-- Rasool (saws) dropped a hint to her for marriage but ONLY a hint
-- if you have 3 kids and the one you love the best is not really your child (the mother has an affair)
-- the child is not entitled to inherit from you
-- so Shariah is to PREVENT crime / haraam
-- the lineage is sacred, that’s why there are barriers to having an affair


--not illegal to have an affair or marry same gender


--when you're a Caliph, if a cancer should emerge in the body of the ummah
--it is incumbent upon you to remove it
--when Ali was caliph, the cancer came of Khawarijj (killed ummah and left the kuffar alone)
--Ibn Abbaas came to debate him:
--They had 3 grudges against Ibn Abass:

***we fought w/ Aisha (ra) and we weren't given concubines
So Ibn Abass offered Aisha ... and they hung heads in shame

***why did Ali scratch out his title of amir ?
--he insulted us!
-- we gave bayah as amir

Ibn Abass told them:
-- the Rasool was forced to scratch out his title, and said to Ali, one day you will be forced to do the same
-- took place at Treaty of Hudabiyyah
-- why were judges appointed, how can human beings be judges

***why did Ali appoint Abu Musa As-Sharee to become a judge when Allah swt is the only judge

So Ibn Abass told them: “Don’t you read the Quran?”
--See 4:35
--send a judge to dispute a marital dispute

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

--Allah swt commanded us to use humans as judges



--one of Khawarijj had a hand look like the glands of a woman (mammary glands/breasts)

--when Ali did body count, he wasn’t satisfied
--he searched the bodies of the Khawarijj and he found the man with the hand like the breast of a woman
--he shouted. Allahuakbar!!!
