Dangers of being Hard-hearted - Shaikh Faisal

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: The Dangers of being Hard-hearted

By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

(morning dars - 5.19.11)

-- last dars we covered fatal attraction : when a man is crazy about a woman.

-- he says: “I will kill you or whoever stops us from coming together as a couple”

-- it is a personality disorder

Prophet Yahya (John)

in the time of prophet Yahya (as) (john ) .. a girl was attracted to her uncle, she was a professional dancer : her uncle asked her to dance for him , he would give her anything : she asked for the head of prophet Yahya : the Jew then chopped of the head of Yahya and placed it on a silver platter for her

-- this personality disorder is found among many kuffar

-- the Sahabah didn’t have this problem

Salman al Farsi

Salman al Farsi fell in love with a girl : he sent abu Darda to ask for her :

the girl wanted to marry Abu Darda : Salman al Farsi was patient and said this was qadr Allah

-- 2 brothers in today’s world would be fighting with each other over this situation

-- Salman al Farsi believed in qadr so he was patient with this (rejection of the girl)

-- people of taqwa have excellent behavior; the Sahabah were people of taqwa

-- when the oil prices crashed (1980's) people were committing suicide for dunya..

-- the dunya is a paradise for the kaafir : but a prison for the believers

Narrated Abu Huraira, the Prophet (saw) said, “The dunya is a prison for the believers and Paradise for the kaafir (disbeliever),” [Sahih Muslim, vol.4, #7058]

in UK, “foot and mouth” disease spread and people had to slaughter their animals:

the government was begged by Prince Charles.. to give the farmers money to compensate


Is a Muslim who commits suicide a kaafir ?

Hadith: Narrated Abu Huraira-: The prophet pbuh said, "He who commits suicide by throttling shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell Fire (forever) and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell-Fire." (Bukhari #23, Hadith #446)

n if a Muslim kills himself he will not be in hell forever:

n Khawarijj believe that the Muslim who kills himself is a kaafir

-- the man who killed himself, will go to hell, but will come out with shifaa'

-- intercession of Muhammad (salah Allahu alayhe wasalam)

-- the man who killed himself on battle field :

-- the Prophet (saws) did not pray over him, but he didn’t stop others for praying over him

-- only the pure can go to Paradise

-- Muslims like it when an imam has a girlfriend : as they will lose moral authority :

-- they cannot enjoin the good and forbid the evil :

-- we do not know where you will end up : we answer with Allahu alim

-- if Allah wills he can forgive you and admit you to paradise, or send you for some days to hell fire,

-- until you are purified

Verily, Allâh forgives not that partners should be set up with Him (in worship), but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He wills; and whoever sets up partners with Allâh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (4:48)

-- the intercession of Muhammad will take you out from the hell fire

-- the worst Muslim is better than the best kaafir

-- because a Muslim has the kalimah: laa ilaha ila Allah Muhammad Arrasool Allah

-- the Muslim has hope no matter what his sins are

-- a kaafir has absolutely no hope, as they have committed shirk

-- see above ayah

-- Hadith collected by Tirmidhi

"Allah the Almighty has said: 'O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me, and hope in Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds in the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I shall forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with an earthful of sins and were you then to face Me, without having associated anything with Me, I shall grant you an earthful of pardon.'" (At-Tirmidhi)

-- ayah Al Baqarah 2:74 (recap from last lesson)

-- Allah blessed the Jews with so many things

Then, after that, your hearts were hardened and became as stones or even worse in hardness. And indeed, there are stones out of which rivers gush forth, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which split asunder so that water flows from them, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which fall down for fear of Allâh. And Allâh is not unaware of what you do. (2:74)

-- ALLAH does not like those who are hard hearted

-- Allah likes those who are soft hearted

-- Allah makes it haraam on the fire to burn these 2 sets of eyes :

-- eyes that keep watch on the borders of Islamic state while Muslims are sleeping (ribaat)

-- these people are called "muraabitoon"

-- second pair of eyes, are those that cried due to fear of Allah

HADITH: Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari (English trans.) vol.1, p.356, no.629 & Sahih Muslim English trans.) Vol.2, p.493, No.2248 There are seven whom Allah ill shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; 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.'

-- a beautiful woman is fitnah (an ugly woman is not fitnah)

-- IF you build a masjid for Allah in dunya, Allah will build a mansion for you in Paradise

"Whoever builds a Masjid for the sake of Allah, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise" Agreed upon Hadith

-- the best love is spiritual love :

-- when you love a person physically, the love will die : when the person becomes old

-- the best love is spiritual love : you will continue to love them in old age

-- Aisha was jealous as the Rasool (saws) always spoke about Khadijah:

-- she asked why you always speak about her..

-- the Rasool said that she supported me when everyone else rejected me

5 Types of love:

physical (husband /wife) : emotional (children/siblings): spiritual (for the sake of Allah) : Divine Love : Unconditional

Divine Love -- love that Allah has for his servants

Rasool said, have you seen the woman who loves her baby. she has compassion she gives the baby suck : Allah loves you more than this woman loves her baby

-- 5th type of love HARAAM : UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Ibn Abbas related that he heard Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) saying: “The fire will not touch the two pairs of eyes; one that sheds tears out of fear of Allah and the other that keeps watch throughout the night in the cause of Allah.” (Nasa’i, Tirmidhi)

-- this love is in conflict with Al walaa wal baraa : we love and hate for the sake of Allah

-- Allah said to the Jews, you have seen so many miracles , yet your hearts have become hard!

Then, after that, your hearts were hardened and became as stones or even worse in hardness. And indeed, there are stones out of which rivers gush forth, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which split asunder so that water flows from them, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which fall down for fear of Allâh. And Allâh is not unaware of what you do. (74)

-- stones rent asunder, out of fear of Allah : yet the Jews heart is hardened

Had We sent down this Qur'ân on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rendt asunder by the fear of Allâh. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect[]. (59:21)

-- the hearts of Jews became harder than the rocks even though they have seen so many miracles

-- What are the things that cause your hearts to become hard? --

-- Abu Lahab and Abu JAHIL, were Arabs not Jews, but their hearts were extremely hard*

-- Hindus are hard-hearted : the people who hate the Muslims the most are Jews and pagans

-- they will unite as a single force (the Jews in Palestine : and the Hindus of India) will unite against the ummah

of Muhammad

-- What are the things that cause your hearts to become hard? --

1. Keeping Evil Company : evil friends cause you to become hard hearted

-- all of you belong to the deen of your friend : so chose carefully who you have a friend :

-- Allah said in Surah Furqan 25:28

Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a Khalil (an intimate friend)! (28)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once said, “A person is likely to follow the faith of his friend, so look (carefully) whom you choose to befriend.” [Ahmad]

-- It will be too late, he chose such a friend in this life

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "A person is likely to follow the faith of his friend, so look whom you befriend." [reported by Abu Dawood & Tirmidhi].

-- the first thing that causes a persons heart to become hard, is having evil friends

2: Harmful Viewing : watching movies (Hollywood; bollywood) or worse!

-- eg. the story of Musab ibn Umair, or Umm Salama, when you hear these stories you should CRY !


-- when did you last hear a Quran verse and cry, a Hadith and cry : or a story of the Sahabah

3: Harmful Reading : you are what you eat/read/view/listen to

-- you find the Quran Boring!!

-- But you do not find a novel boring

-- but you can read a Harry potter story :

-- audhubillah

-- a Muslim who reads these stories, they cannot read Quran or Hadith ( they become bored )

a Muslim could watch a film for 2 hours,. his heart is connected with the film ::

yet on Friday at khutbah he may sleep during the khutbah!!

4. Harmful Listening

-- many Muslims go to chatrooms of Shia and Goofi Soofi’s ...

-- you think it is harmless "fun"

-- these chat rooms make you hard hearted

-- you go there because you are not CONVINCED about your deen

-- when you go to the chatrooms you become

-- you are not convinced where Allah is

-- Ta Ha 20:5

-- They ask you " before Allah created His Arsh : where was Allah>?"

-- the answer is "Allahu alim" : do not commit yourself to an answer

-- if you commit yourself to an answer you will become a laughing stock :

-- only Allah himself can answer that question


-- Half of knowledge is to say "I don't know"

-- Allah said : Surah An-Nisa 4:140

-- it is haraam to go to these chat rooms ( or to mix with these people )

-- they say it is halal to spy on the Muslims

-- many believe that David Cameron is the worst kaafir in UK : But that is wrong :

Abu KHADIJAH is the worst kaafir, he is misleading many of the Muslim youth :

-- it is haraam for you to pray behind the Saudi Salafis or take your deen from them

-- -- it is haraam for you to pray behind people who call the mujahideen Khawarij or terrorists.

-- to hate the mujahid is like hating : any of the pillars of Islam

-- salah, sawm, zakah, hajj

Al Baqarah 2:183 : the Ayah of sawm ( fasting )

5. Joking too much : makes the heart hard

-- when you hear a wonderful story of a Sahabah , and you do not cry. you have a hard heart :

The Prophet (saw) "Whoever dies and he does not fight nor does he ever intend to fight (prepares for it) then he dies on a branch of hypocrisy" (Muslim)

-- Umm Amaara did not run away; she was fighting left and right.

-- Umar ibn al Khattab : left his home to kill the prophet : before the end of the day he was a Muslim !

-- if you hear these stories ,. and you do not cry : there is something wrong with your heart

-- it is not just Jews who are hard hearted :

-- Shia is so hard hearted : they try to veto Allah

AISHA'S 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)

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

Surah Noor 24:11

-- Shia is so hard hearted : they try to veto Allah

Verily! those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah radhiallahu'anhu the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (Nur: 11)

-- They hate Aisha because she fought Ali

-- they say Allah lied to cover for Aisha

-- the Shia do taqiyya (deception) they lie to hide their aqeedah from you!

-- they need to do taqiyya to hide their aqeedah from the ummah, as it’s so nauseating and obnoxious

-- they stay away from places where the Muslims are strict

-- the Borealis are hard-hearted

-- they say Muhammad was noor (light)

Allah said : Surah Al Kahf 18:110

Say (O Muhammad ): "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God i.e. Allah). So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord." (18:110)

the Berailwis say that if you say that Muhamed was a bashar (human being)

then you have disrespected Muhammad : see above ayah

no Berailwis believes in this ayah !

-- Deobandi, hard heartedness: believes that Allah is everywhere

yet they say they follow Abu Hanifa : Abu Hanifa made takfir on anyone who does not believe:

that Allah is above His Arsh !

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 Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (20:5)

Ta-Ha 20:5

-- aiding kufr and shirk : helping the kaafir with his worship*

-- in any way

-- the Christian believes that Allah begot a son : when you give a xmas card to a kaafir,

-- you have given the stamp of approval : you are a kaafir



Narrated by Muslim (145) from Abu Hurayrah who said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.”

-- imagine the amount of Muslims who live in daar al harb who have apostated !

-- in halal butcher store, with merry xmas hanging up! :

-- his excuse was : Jesus is a prophet of Islam , therefore I am allowed to celebrate xmas

-- we have proved that Jews,. Shiites, Deobandi, and Baarelvis are hard-hearted

-- what about the Saudi Salafis

-- they are hard-hearted : they believe that to dismantle Shariah is minor kufr

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 swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell-fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (5:60)

-- Saudi Salafis and MADkhalis ::: you are saying Allah over reacted !

-- for turning the Jews into apes and swine. for dismantling Shariah

-- cancer tumors must be removed from the ummah

Khaalid ibn Abdullah al Qasri

-- the governor of Khorasan

-- he told the people to bring their sacrifices..

-- he told the people to bring their sacrifices.. Jaad ibn Dirhhm ?

-- said he didn’t believe that Allah spoke to Musa : he believed that Allah was mute

-- you can end up being decapitated

Battle of Nahruwaan

-- only 9 remained alive

-- they went to Makkah to regroup

-- took revenge for what Ali did to them

-- Ali, removed the Khawarijj at the Battle of Nahruwaan : only 9 remained alive

-- the hujjah was established by ibn Abbaas

-- Abu Muljim went to Iraq he met a girl : she was beautiful : but a Khawarij :

-- he immediately fell in love and proposed. : she said she would accept

-- if he chopped off the head of Ali.. and give me a rose garden

-- he thought Allah had blessed his mission

-- he thot this was Allah's will

-- the shaitan deluded him

-- they were both Khawarijj : ( he thought it was definitely a holy mission ) shaytaan deludes people

-- the bird went to Yemen , and saw people worshiping the sun instead of Allah

"I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah, and Shaitan (Satan) has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and has barred them from (Allah's) Way, so they have no guidance," (27:24)

-- the bird told Suleiman it was the shaytaan who beautified the deeds for the people

-- the bird told Suleiman it was the shaytaan who beautified the deeds for the people

-- he thought he had been blessed.. with the mission , as he met the most beautiful girl in the world

-- and my Mahr is the head of Ali and this is the Ali that I came to Iraq to kill..

-- even when Ali was dying : he stuck with his principles : he ordered the Khawarij to be killed

-- he stuck with his principles, not ordering his son to be ameer after him

-- ibn Abbaas went to them to give them the hujjah : but their hearts were hard :

-- they didn’t surrender to the hujjah :

-- this man shouldn’t have killed Ali or been a Khawarij but his heart was hard

-- the man stabbed-- Mu'awiyah but the stab was not lethal enough to kill him

-- a man went to kill Amir Ibn Abbaas : saw a man who looked like him and killed him : then blamed Allah

-- for qadr

-- he said I wanted to kill Amir ibn al Abbaas : but Allah wanted this man to die instead

-- the man shouldn’t have gone to kill Amir ibn al Abass: but he was hard hearted :

-- this stopped him from surrendering to the hujjah :

-- to be hard-hearted is very dangerous : even the Quran and sunnah do not penetrate the hearts !!
