In the last lesson, we stopped at Surah Baqarah 2:75
Have ye any hope that they will be true to you when a party of them used to listen to the word of Allah then used to change it, after they had understood it, knowingly? (Al-Baqarah 2:75)
-- if you write a cheque to a man $100 and the person put an extra zero,
-- to make it $1000.... what a con artist!
-- but the worst con artist is the one who cons you about your deen
The worst con artist is the one who lies about Allah
And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allâh, while he is being invited to Islâm? And Allâh guides not the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk. (As-Saff 61:7)
-- You are not allowed to fabricate lies against Allah
-- fawahish = shameful sexual intercourse
Say (O Muhammad SAW): "(But) the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are Al¬ Fawahish (great evil sins, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse, etc.) whether committed openly or secretly, sins (of all kinds), unrighteous oppression, joining partners (in worship) with Allâh for which He has given no authority, and saying things about Allâh of which you have no knowledge." (Al-A'raf 7:33)
-- there are 2 types of intercourse: halal and haraam
-- every time you go to bed with your husband / wife - you get barakah (hasanaat- good deeds)
-- there is a place in New York called 42nd Street (people do unlawful sexual intercourse openly there)
Shaikh in Nigeria: was asked a question. He replied, "I don’t know"
-- HALF OF KNOWLEDGE IS TO SAY "I DONT KNOW"
-- when you speak with out knowledge is to lie on Allah
-- don’t do dhann = guessing
-- it is haraam to guess at that which Allah has made halal or haraam
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H): “Whenever a person makes halal what is haraam by consensus or makes haraam what is halal by consensus or replaces the Sharee’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” – “Al-Fataawa” Vol. 3/267
Ibn Taymiyyah used to make takfir on the wicked scholars...
-- the wicked scholars of today are having "a honey moon" but
-- THAT WAS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE
-- the Jewish rabbis who changed the Words of Allah:
-- the elders of Zion wrote a book called The Talmud
-- they said this book was better than the book of Allah
ISLAM IS A SLEEPING LION: it is incumbent upon the scholars to "wake up the lion”: the kuffar are intent on killing the scholars who want to wake up the sleeping lion (ISLAM)
-- they put the wicked scholars on their payroll: to stop them from waking up the Muslims
-- so these scholars can not give tafseers of Tauba. al Bayyinah etc.
-- as the kuffar say they are politically incorrect
-- Surah Tauba does not have bismillaahi rahmani raheem at the beginning:
-- the scholars have said this is because it is about JIHAD
-- the kuffar are trying to turn the ummah from lions to goats
-- when you want to keep a lion from harming you: give it tranquilizers
-- this lion is ISLAM: the kuffar need to tranquilize the Muslims
-- trying to get us to turn from lions into goats
-- if they do not do this, they will rise up and get rid of "kufrdom"
-- this is the system of the Dajjal: so everything that is haraam they make it halal
The Prophet said, 'The time of the Dajjal will be years of confusion. People will believe a liar, and disbelieve one who tells the truth. (Ahmad)
Shaikh in Capetown, South Africa:
-- Ihsan Hendrix came on radio and said that Islam allows homosexuality
-- the wicked scholars make up their own Islam
-- they believe in interfaith dialogue with the kuffar
-- to get rid of differences between the religions
In the time of the Rasool, they had 2 study circles: the study circle of the prophet and the study circle of the Jewish rabbis.
If you are convinced that Muhammad is Rasool,
-- why do you need to go to the study circle of the Jews / Shia / Christians?
-- the munafiqeen of Madinah used to sit in the study circle of Muhammad and the Jews and carry
news backward and forward
And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. (11) Beware ! They indeed are the mischief-makers. But they perceive not. (12) Al-Baqarah 11, 12
-- why carry news? TO SPREAD FITNAH
-- why do you go to 2 study circles ? YOU HAVE NOT YET FOUND ISLAM !!
The wicked scholar chooses to be a wicked scholar because he is terrified about the
reprisals of the kuffar
-- not every one can handle prison (even wicked scholars)
-- the ummah is so weak WE CANNOT PROTECT OUR SCHOLARS !
-- the wicked scholar fears rotting in jail
-- if you live in countries like Libya, Syria, and Jordan and you open your mouth and speak the truth..
-- you will be locked up in jail and never see day light again
-- they will take your wife / son / daughter and rape them in front of you
A person becomes a wicked scholar because he has a weak personality
-- what should you do if you live in these countries?
-- you have to be like the scholar in Surah Burooj:
-- he realized he cannot change things so he went and lived in a cave: cut himself off
-- this king killed kids, dug ditches and burnt them alive
-- the scholar went and lived in a cave: cut himself off. Why?
-- he didn’t want to pass fatwas for that wicked king!
-- the scholars cement the thrones for the rulers
-- when a scholar drinks alcohol, it is worse than the layman
YOUR SINS WILL CAUSE YOU TO LOSE YOUR MORAL AUTHORITY
-- the scholar [righteous] didn’t go to the palace of the king
-- he hid himself in a cave because he didn’t want to be held responsible for this on Judgment Day
-- Mu’awiyah was a king, he had scholars with him, but they enjoined good and forbade evil
-- they conquered a lot of North Africa and they took a beautiful girl for none but the caliph, Mu’awiyah
-- Mu’awiyah said, ‘She is too young for me, give her to my son, Yazid’
-- the scholar said no, that girl is haraam for Yazid, as you are his father and you saw her leg!
-- Mu’awiyah accepted this fatwa and she was given to another
Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibrahim ibn Abi Abla from Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan that he gave a slave-girl to a friend of his, and later asked him about her. He said, "I intended to give her to my son to do such-and-such with her." Abd al-Malik said, "Marwan was more scrupulous than you. He gave a slave-girl to his son, and then he said, 'Do not go near her, for I have seen her leg uncovered.'” Narrated From Imam Malik's Muwatta Hadith No. 38
-- Umar surrounded himself with scholars; the people were drinking alcohol
-- they were given 40 lashes; the scholars and Umar increased the lashing to 80
-- the caliphs who were sincere always surrounded themselves with scholars
-- so they would be reminded how to implement the Shariah properly
When Umar was caliph, an insane woman, who had an affair (she was pregnant)
-- she was brought to Umar and she was so frightened of him, she had a miscarriage
-- Ali said for Umar to only pay the woman 5 camels (some responsibility for the miscarriage)
-- Umar said if it wasn’t for Ali, I would have been destroyed
-- Ali had mercy
-- Shariah has mercy
-- the leaders of today, do not surround themselves with scholars, they dump them in prison
-- when the cancer of Khawarijj befell upon the ummah, Ali sent ibn Abbaas to debate and give them
Abu Zubyan said: A woman who had committed adultery was brought to Umar. He gave orders that she should be stoned. Ali passed by just then. He seized her and let her go. Umar was informed of it. He said: Ask Ali to come to me. Ali came to him and said: Commander of the Faithful, you know that the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Commander of the Faithful, you know that the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) said: There are three (people) whose actions are not recorded: A boy till he reaches puberty, a sleeper till he awakes, a lunatic till he is restored to reason. [Abu Dawood #4388, Narrated Ali ibn Abu Talib]
Mullah Baqir writes: 'One should say after each prayer: O Allaah! Curse Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthmaan, Mu'awiyah, Aa'ishah, Hafsah, Hind and Ummul Hakam. (Aynul Hayat: 599)
Wherever the Quran mentions "Rab" (meaning Lord/God), according to this Shia book, that word should be substituted with Imam Ali's name. (Jila-ul-A'yoon, Vol. 2, p. 66) The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)
-- we use this Hadith to checkmate the Shiites, as the Shia believe that Ali should have been the caliph
At Ghadeer Qum (a well outside Madinah), the Rasool gave a speech:
-- “If I am your wali, Ali is my wali”
-- we say to the Shiites, Ali had a very strong personality: he always stood up to Umar
-- if Ali knew that he was supposed to be the rightful successor of the prophet: Why then did he give his bayyah to Abu Bakr? He wasn’t forced to give it
-- Shia claim that that they follow ahlul bayt (Ali) : if you follow Ali, you have to do what Ali did
-- he gave his bayyah to Abu Bakr and Umar, and he DID NOT FIGHT THEM
-- the sincere caliph who feared Allah, surrounded themselves with great scholars
-- when the uprising started in Libya, (Saif al Islam, the son of Ghadaffi) called Aa'id al Qarnee, of Saudi Arabia, asking for a fatwa so the Libyans wouldn’t protest against Ghadaffi
-- the Libyan scholars were mostly dumped in prison and left to rot or they are munafiqeen / murji
Prophet (saws) said topple the leader if you see clear kufr [Bukhari Vol 9 Page 146]
-- they were just in hiding ..
-- the scholars have said it is fardh al ayn to topple Ghadaffi even Qaradawi
-- we are licking our wounds from the fatwas passed by the Saudi Salafi scholars
-- they say: it is halal to have U.S. army in Saudi Arabia... to kill millions of innocent Iraqis
3 sets of people worship their scholars
a) the Goofi Soofis
b) Saudi Salafis
c) shady Shiites
-- a scholar for them cannot make a mistake : they think their scholar is infallible (Audhubillah)
-- the Goofi Soofis lock doors with women/girls, and tamper with them (sexually) they say this is part
of the dhikr
-- to checkmate those who say we must SWALLOW what the Scholar says:
-- shut up and do not ask any question:
SHIA BELIEF RE: IMAMS - It is a fundamental principle of faith that our (Shia) Imams have ranks higher than the ranks of angels & God's prophets. (Khomeini's book, Hukuma Islamiya, p. 52)
-- (snake) Naazim al Haqqani: said "I have the mobile (cell) number of the prophet"
-- he could sell the Soofis the tel. number: Soofis ask for money to "intercede" with Allah (Audhubillah)
And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, - while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You." He (Allâh) said: "I know that which you do not know." (Al-Baqarah 2:30)
-- so the angels questioned Allah
-- who are the scholars that we cannot question them:
-- “Mr. Saudi Salafi : why do you tell us we cannot question bin Baz?”
-- bin Baz gave his walaa to an army who desecrate Quran using it as toilet paper and
-- then rape Muslim women / men:
-- the angels wanted to know the Hikmah about this creation
THE RASOOL (saws)
--the Rasool was marching to Battle of Badr, he decided to camp at a particular place. A Sahabah asked him, “Is it your personal opinion or wahi (revelation)?” The Rasool answered, that it was his personal opinion. The Sahabah said he disagreed and that they should camp next to the water (to cut it off from the kuffar). The Rasool abandoned his opinion and went with the opinion of the Sahabah when he realized it wasn’t strategic.
-- if you believe that to dismantle the Shariah of Allah is a minor kufr,
--you are a heretic (zindeeq) and you have made up your own Islam
-- Imam Malik said : to believe that Allah is on/above His Arsh is waajib (obligatory)
-- the Goofi Soofis believe Allaah is everywhere
-- we can bring many incidents where the Sahabah question the prophet :
-- when the woman was stoned for adultery: Umar asked the Rasool "will you pray over her"
Abdullah Ibn Umar (RA) reported that the Jews brought to the Prophet (saws) a man and a woman who had committed (adultery) illegal sexual intercourse. He ordered both of them to be stoned (to death), near the place of offering the funeral prayers beside the mosque." [Bukhari]
And Shaitân (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: "Verily, Allâh promised you a promise of truth. And I too promised you, but I betrayed you. I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me. So blame me not, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allâh (by obeying me in the life of the world). Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.)." (Ibrahim 14:22)
Because the shaytaan KNOWS that you should ONLY OBEY ALLAH,
he will declare himself free of your sins
And whoso opposeth the messenger after the guidance (of Allah) hath been manifested unto him, and followeth other than the believer's way, We appoint for him that unto which he himself hath turned, and expose him unto hell - a hapless journey's end! (An-Nisa 115)
-- this ayah tells you that it is obligatory on you to follow the Ijmaah (agreement/consensus) of the ummah
Shall I tell thee of a worse (case) than theirs for retribution with Allah? Worse (is the case of him) whom Allah hath cursed, him on whom His wrath hath fallen ! Worese is he of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine, and who serveth idols. Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road. (Maida 60)
-- Mr. Saudi Salafi, are you trying to say that when Allah turned the Jews into ape and swine, that
Allah was over re-acting!!!?
-- invite them to Authentic Tauheed to debate
-- the Saudi Salafis came for debate in Nigeria.,,
-- Abu Hanifah died in prison, they locked him up and poisoned him
Imam Abu Hanifa died a martyr in prison in the year 150 Ah. He was poisoned on the orders of the Caliph Mansur after being lashed and thrown in jail for refusing the post of Chief Justice. According to Yaqub ibn Shaybah he died while in a state of sujud.
-- Abu Hanifa died in prison; they locked him up and poisoned him: he died in salah
-- when Ahmad ibn Hanbal was alive : the fitnah of "the Quran was created" appeared
Ahmad ibn Hanbal:
--Ahmad ibn Hanbal refused to say that the Quran was created
--there is no such thing of a perfect creation; when the angels hear the kalamullah, the Quran:
--they fall down and faint
-- they asked Ahmad ibn Hanbal: why didn’t you cheat them?
--He replied "if a scholar of Islam should keep quiet, how can the Truth come to the surface"!
…and it is said to have been ash-Shafi’i – “What do you think of this Qur’an? Is it created?” He replied, counting on his fingers: “The Torah, the Psalms, the Gospel, the Qur’an – these four are created,” ['Fi Dhilal Surat at-Tawbah'; p. 19]
Islam survived 3 days:
1. The day that the Rasool prayed and cried to Allah, Allah sent 1000 angels: they were given victory
2. When Abu Bakr fought the apostates for not paying zakat
3. When Imam ibn Hanbal took a stand against the Mutazalites they claimed the Quran was ‘created’)
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "Nothing is left of the prophetism except Al-Mubashshirat." They asked, "What are Al-Mubashshirat?" He replied, "The true good dreams (that conveys glad tidings)." Hadith - Bukhari 9:168, Narrated Abu Salama
"The good dream of a man who is salih is a forty-sixth part of prophecy." Malik's Muwatta Book 52, Number 52.1.1
“True dreams are one of the forty-six parts of Prophethood.” (al-Bukhaari, 6472; Muslim, 4201)
