Man Striving to Accomplish - Shaikh Faisal

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: Man will only Accomplish what he Strives for

By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

-- last dars, we stopped at Surah Baqarah 2:74

-- Allah dislikes those who are hard hearted

Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. (2:74)

-- the hard hearted person has symptoms

-- it is better not to give dawah to the hard hearted

-- Ali didn't make takfir on the Khawarijj

-- Ibn Kathir recorded this story

-- someone asked Ali about them "were they Mushrikun?"

-- he replied they were running away from shirk / rebelled against us

-- they were not munafiqeen as the munafiqeen remember Allah a little

-- the Khawarijj are the dogs of jahanaam :

-- it does not mean that they will not come out of hell

-- they may come out of hell fire with shifaa of Muhammad salah Allahu alayhe wasalam

-- they rejected the Quranic hujjah in the name of pride (kibr)

-- Allah told you in the Quran:

-- we're not to give dawah to every person

-- give admonishment if it benefits the person

-- when you meet a kaafir who is adamant in his kufr. don’t waste your time by giving him/her dawah

-- it's like throwing diamonds to the swine

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

-- Allah (swt) used the word kaafir to mean: an ungrateful person to his Lord

-- the word kaafir : meaning a man who is ungrateful to his Lord


1. The person is proud and arrogant

-- this was the plight of the Khawarijj who rejected the hujjah of Ibn Abbas

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatin (devils), and the Shaitan (Devil - Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord.(17:27)

-- Ali ordered to fight them (the Khawarijj) and said they cannot kill ten of us

-- and ten of them will not remain alive

2. He is rebellious to the haqq (truth)

-- he will never accept the haqq..

-- if you tell him something is red, he will say it looks pink to me

3. H uses the mistakes of others as a reason to remain a kaafir

-- to justify his kufr, “I am not going to become a Muslim

-- because my neighbor is a Muslim and he is having an affair”

Imam Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and al-Hakim recorded a Hadith from Ibn Abi Awfá, and Ahmad and al-Hakim also recorded it from Abu Umamah that the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said: The Khawarij are the dogs of Hell

-- don’t waste your time with such people as their hearts are sealed

4. He tries to highlight the negative aspects of Islamic history to claim

that Islam is not a perfect religion

-- When a person wants to remain as a kaafir he will find a million excuses to remain as a


-- Allah loves those who make taubah with tears

-- There are 2 sets of eyes, that Allah has made it haraam on the fire to burn

-- look at those whose hearts are hard

-- when you live in dar al harb , if you are not careful you will become a shaytaan

-- in these societies, only the strong survive : the weak fall by the wayside

-- If you don’t keep good company your heart will become hard!

O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds) 9:119

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. (Nasai, Tirmidhi)

-- if you don’t keep good company, and attend halaqas (study circles )

-- your heart will become hard

-- your cell phone battery becomes dead. you have to recharge the battery

-- you panic if you cannot find the charger: YOUR EMAN NEEDS TO BE RECHARGED


-- financial / emotional / physical (sexual need) / spiritual need / intellectual need

-- you need someone to talk to

-- you may hear a Hadith a thousand times, yet still you love to hear it again!

-- you are not a believer until you love for your brother what you love for yourself

-- you must decide to change your own condition before Allah will change your condition

13:11 For each (person), there are angels in succession, before and behind him.

They guard him by the Command of Allah. Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah) but when Allah wills a people's punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector

"No man is a true believer unless he desires for his brother that, what he desires for himself." (Abu Hamza Anas: Bukhari & Muslim)

2 tafseers on this ayah - both are accurate

1st tafseer = if you are enjoying prosperity, Allah will never take your prosperity away from

you until you become an evil person

2nd tafseer = if you are living in a state of poverty and pity

-- (as Muslims are suffering today) ..

-- UNTIL YOU RETURN to your deen and practice Islam properly

-- Allah will never take away the Islamic caliphate

-- UNTIL YOU deviate from the path

-- you want to bring back the Glory days?

Allah will never bring back the Glory days UNTIL YOU RETURN TO YOUR DEEN

-- you are living in disgrace, Allah will not change your condition until YOU want to CHANGE


-- only then your condition will be changed

-- how can you plant peas and expect to reap corn?

-- Answer : what you sow you shall reap!

5. He tries to find mistakes in the Qur'an

-- they go at length : to find mistakes in the Qur'an

-- even tho there are NO MISTAKES IN THE QUR'AN

-- people set up websites, saying they have found mistakes in the Qur'an

-- the scholars of Islam have said, if you read verses in Qur'an and you think they contradict

-- bring them to us and we will explain them to you

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

-- Allah is the Author of the Quran there can be no mistakes

-- Ali ibn Abi Taalib, heard a man giving a speech in the masjid

-- Ali asked the man, “Do you know the verses in the Quran which have been abrogated?”

-- “abrogated” = replaced by another

-- the man said no. he told him you seek to destroy others, and kicked him out of the masjid

-- we DO NOT take our deen from a kaafir

-- YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE TAFSEER from the deviants :

-- you are only allowed, to take your tafseer from ASWJ

-- Shia, Barelvis, Qadiyanis, goof Sufis,)

-- that we do not need to go for jihad if we are disabled

Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward Nisa :95

-- look at us today, with able limbs: not only do people run away from Jihad

-- they call the mujahideen terrorists.

-- the munafiqeen and Saudi Salafis

-- even the blind Sahabah used to go for jihad

-- the man for whom Allah corrected the Rasool : when he frowned:

-- was insisting to go for jihad; he was blind

-- not only to they shun jihad, they call the mujahideen terrorist and Khuwarij

-- they want to please the kuffar!

-- you are swimming in nifaq to your neck!

-- it is haraam to pray behind a man who doesn’t love the mujahideen

-- anyone who dies and didn’t go for jihad, he dies on a branch of nifaq (hypocrisy)

-- the Saudi Salafis, do not condemn the kuffar for raping and killing Muslims

-- yet they condemn the Muslim mujahideen, say to them:


6. He is addicted to unlawful pleasures of the flesh!

-- which Muslim woman would marry a man who was in 10 years of jahiliyiah as a gay?

-- there is no Muslim woman who would accept this

-- her family would never allow it even if she accepted it!

-- they want to have a gay mosque the pink mosque

-- only Islam can save these people

-- those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol

-- the person becomes hard hearted when a person is addicted to pleasures of the flesh

-- most gays are atheist: they want to hold on to false hope

-- 2 types of humans: human beings and human filth

-- the gay is a human filth, he is addicted to pleasure of the flesh

-- your finger print is on the gun, and the sulfur is on your shirt,

-- but your lawyer says he can get you off: why? because people like it

-- when you give them false hope. they don’t like to hear the truth. they like to hear false hope

-- he gives himself false hope .. he tells himself : there is no God and no hell fire

-- people like falsehood : they find comfort in falsehood

-- in trinity you can sleep around and eat pork : because Jesus died for your sins,

-- you don’t need to worry about them

-- Muslims who marry xtian women , when the kids grow up, they chose Christianity over Islam ,

-- but Muslim women can not marry Jews or Christians

-- no need to fast pray

-- Allah said in Surah Yusuf 12:103

103. And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly.

-- the majority of people will never believe !

-- you desire for people to take the Shahadah : but people find comfort in falsehood


"Whoever died without fight, and had no intention to fight, he died on one of the branches of hypocrisy"(Muslim)

-- they say Islam is too restrictive

-- a woman said : in your religion you don’t allow sex before marriage

-- how can I marry a man with out "test driving" a man

-- they put up resistance against you inviting them to Islam

-- spiritually empty : morally bankrupt and ethically diverse

-- these people declare war on the people who have morals

-- they are jealous of your morality

-- Qom Lut declared war on married couples

7:82. And the answer of his people was only that they said: "Drive them out of your town, these are indeed men who want to be pure (from sins)!"

-- Allah told you : Surah Al Araf 7:82

-- when a person is a lesbian or gay, they carry a "chip on their shoulder"

-- a lesbian woman was killing babies because she realized she couldn’t have babies

-- and she envied those who could

-- they envy you for your lifestyle of purity and taqwa

-- Allah created woman from the man (the uppermost rib of Adam )

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. 30:21

-- A man needs and woman and vice versa

-- if you are in a marriage, and you don’t find these three things

-- repose, affection and mercy

-- you should not stay in that marriage

-- you need these things in your marriage

-- the best thing in life is a wonderful marriage

-- and the worst thing in life is a bad marriage

-- in America there are thousands of gay churches, xtianity is a business

-- they don’t care if you are gay or lesbian : as long as you drop money in the box!

7. He gives dawah (calling) to a false religion

-- eg. a man who is a Jehovah Witness activist

-- he cannot embrace Islam until he abandons his creed

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 Allah. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. 2:74

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

-- you must establish the evidence (hujjah) [bayyinah] against them


-- Africa 2008 : Shaikh gave Shahadah to 450

-- Kenya arrested Shaikh and questioned him about his dawah

-- not every kaafir heart is sealed

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

-- whenever the kuffar do a documentary about Islam:

-- they always say that Islam is the fasting growing religion today!

-- the Jews and the Christians and the pagans will never abandon their false religion

-- until YOU take the Bayyinah to them !

8. He belongs to a Satanic organization like “Free Masons”

-- Allah said they are the worst of created things

-- if you want to be successful you have to join them

-- these organizations are set up to take people away from the path of Allah

-- to become a 30 degree Free Mason you have to become a xtian

-- ILLUMINATI are higher than Free Masons

-- these people own major banks and they lend money to governments

-- man will only have that which he strives for
