Rejecting the Taghoot (1) - Shaikh Faisal

Rejecting the Taghoot (1)
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars: 5.16.11)

Taghoot is anything which is worshiped instead of ALLAH (man-made ism and schisms)

This is one of the topics which wasn’t spoken much about in the ummah
--if you speak about this topic, many people ask "what is taghoot?"
--this means no one warned them about the taghoot, no one explained to them what it is and isn’t
--example: Buddha, democracy

Believing in ALLAH is not enough:
--you must practice the other part of the Shahadah which is to reject the taghoot

Umar Ibn Khattab said the shaitan is taghoot
--soothsayers, fortune-tellers, the palm-readers upon whom the devils descend are the taghoot:
--this is the definition by Jabir ibn Abdullah
--anything that causes you to exceed the limits ordained by ALLAH swt is taghoot
--this is the definition of Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah
--in order for you to apostate, you can do it w/ your heart, limbs and tongue

1. If you doubt Muhammad (saws), you've apostated

2:10 - In their hearts is a disease, and Allah increaseth their disease. A painful doom is theirs because they lie.

--you can't contaminate your eeman w/ doubts

--when you do, you apostated
--Shahadah has 7 conditions, the first 2 are: 1. Knowledge of the Shahadah and 2. Yaqeen
--you cannot doubt your Shahadah
--what changes your qadr is your daily dua
--Buddha is a taghoot
--Christians are pagans who worship 3 gods (father son and spirit)
--they are called "people of the book"

Battle of Badr
--at Battle of Badr, a Jew came to fight alongside the Prophet (saws) and the Jew refused Shahadah
--so he was rejected to fight w/ Muhammad (saws)
--he was called a pagan but they're not refused to be called people of book
--they are allowed to live in Islamic State as long as they pay jiza
--we can eat their slaughter
--they had a prophet
--but you can't marry a Hindu woman (that marriage is bautil)

Christians worship Isa but he is not a taghoot because he did not agree for people to worship him

--you must know that people are worshiping you and agree to it
--Isa is not worshiped by the Christians
--Muhammad and Isa are not taghoot
--they don't agree to be worshiped

John 5:37 - And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form

We, as Muslims, say the Bible proves the opposite of the Christians claim that Jesus is God

--Jesus told his disciples that they’ve NEVER seen God
--when you debate Christians, bring up these bible verses
--Jesus never made the claim that he was God (in the bible)

2. An Icon of a false religion

--example : Louis Farrakhan is a taghoot , Mother Teresa is a taghoot
-- both are icons of FALSE religions
--Musaylimah was a false prophet, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, as well, was a false prophet:
--both are classified as taghoot

3. The false religion itself

--the doctrine itself is the taghoot
--any doctrine that takes you away from tawheed is taghoot
--Free Mason movement, Christianity, Hinduism, etc

2:256 -- No compulsion in religion because truth stands clear from falsehood

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. (2:256)

There are some people who are born into Muslim families but they apostated from Islam when they reached puberty; these people this ayat to justify their apostasy

--you are not permitted to force a Christian to embrace Islam

--if you have to force them, we don't want him
--his entry into Islam is fake because he was forced
--if you were brought up as a Muslim, "raised Muslim", you’re not allowed to leave Islam
--and if you’re a revert to Islam, you’re not allowed to leave Islam after 5 or 6 years
--tho many try to leave

If you are a raised Muslim, you had Muslim parents, you’re not allowed to quote 2:256 as an excuse to apostate
If you’re a revert, you cant leave Islam based off of other Muslims actions
The Rasul PBUH said to kill the apostate -- this is done only in the Islamic state

There is no guarantee or promise by God in these verses that these "Sahabahs" would not make any mistakes,

or turn back on their heels or stay on the right path (Bukhari)

--we emphasize that this is only in the Islamic state, because the kuffar twist meanings all the time
--you’re not allowed to put a gun to the head of a Jew or Christian and say
--'if you don’t embrace Islam I am going to blow your brains out'
--that’s what 2:256 means

4. The false judges
--the judges in the French LAW, British LAW, etc.

Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray. (4:60)

These judges in the kaafir court houses are FALSE judges and they are TAGHOOT

--you are not allowed to go to them for judgment
--'any Muslim who goes to kaafir court houses for judgment is like the man who committed shirk'
--Tawheed Hakimiyya is the twin half of Tawheed Ibadah
--ALLAH's rule and ALLAH's worship is exclusive to Him alone
--the MADkhalis (Saudi Salafis) claim that Tauheed Hakimiyya is a bid'ah
--Muhammad Ibrahim (the teacher of bin Baz) said that Tauheed Hakimiyya is the twin half of Tauheed Ibadah

To go to the Sharia court for your judgment: THIS is like worshiping ALLAH alone

--when you go to the kaafir court house for judgment, it is like bowing down to idols tahaakum
--tahaakum (many Muslims have not heard of this before)
--going to kaafirs for judgment

Abu Jahl believed in Allah

--to believe in ALLAH doesn’t make you anyone special -- Abu Jahl believed in ALLAH
--He was the commander of the pagans!

The commander of the Muslims was Muhammad PBUH -- he made a dua in which he cried very much

--"oh ALLAH if you allow this small batch of Muslims to be destroyed:
--no one on the earth will be left to worship you"
--therefore believing in ALLAH is nothing special: you must reject the taghoot

And if you asked them, "Who created the heavens and earth?" they would surely say, " Allah ." Say, "[All] praise is [due] to Allah "; but most of them do not know. (31:25)

--they went wrong by not rejecting taghoot
--if you ask the kaafirs of Qureshi believe in ALLAH
--but where did they go wrong? they went wrong because they did not reject the taghoot
--they believe in ALLAH
--your Shahadah has TWO parts -- negation and affirmation

Sidq [condemns all shades of falsehood]

--an atheist practices half of the Shahadah -- he believes that 'there is not God....'
--all he needs to say is "except ALLAH"
--therefore Many Muslims say that they prefer to give dawah to the atheist,
--because he is half way there to accepting the Shahadah

5. the kaafir army
--you’re not allowed to join their army and give them your bayah --
--you can only join the Mujahideen
--any Muslim who fights in a kaafir army and gets killed in action -- he has committed suicide

The British media has hailed Lance Corporal Jabron Hashmi as a 'hero'

--geezer = man
--Jabron Hashmi, the British Muslim soldier killed fighting the Taliban
--he died for the queen but not for the sake of Allah (tala)
--this Pakistani did not know the only army that he is supposed to join is the Mujahideen:
--he was never taught this at this masjid
--he died as a kaafir outside of the fold of Islam
--he was a Barelvi -- they do not reject the taghoot

Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah , and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak. (4:76)

wagonist = quickly jumps on the bandwagon w/o seeing if it goes to Paradise or the Hellfire
--the racist, the nationalist, the tribalism, the democrat, the capitalist :
--you’re not allowed to jump on any of these bandwagons

If you want to die, die for ALLAH

--people of Pakistan have a tawheed problem
--this kaafir’s own family was bragging that their son died for the queen
--he was also Pakistani

Shaikh Faisal speaks about tawheed everyday so if you don't understand this:

--you have not benefited from this room
--you can't recognize the haqq
--majority of people in Pakistan are NOT on the haqq
--Deobandi believe Allah tala is everywhere and they believe in democracy
--majority of Pakistan - Barelvis, Deobandi, Shias
--the knowledge is not getting into your HEART
--you can't retain knowledge
--its not just Pakistan, its the state of affairs of ALL Muslim countries

The Muslims in Tunisia , Egypt cried out for democracy!
--so it’s not just the Pakistanis with the problem


--you can't take the Jamaican out of the man (example)

--you can't take the country out of the man

ALLAH said : those who are KUFFAR -- THEY are the ones who fight for the taghoot

--so for you to believe in Allah (tala) is nothing special: what makes you special is to reject the taghoot
--if you cheer for the crusaders , you have NO al walaa wal baraa
--this is the aqeedah of the Saudi Salafis

6. Man-made isms and schisms

Hast thou not seen those unto whom a portion of the Scripture hath been given, how they believe in idols and false deities, and how they say of those (idolaters) who disbelieve: "These are more rightly guided than those who believe"? (4:51)


Tafseer 4:51 : The kaafirs of Mecca, they were contemplating embracing Islam -- a delegation of Jews went to Mecca, and the pagans sat with them -- the pagans said ' you are more learned of us, because you have the scriptures.... so which is better? is the deen of Muhammad (tawheed) better or is our paganism better ? "

The Jews said to the Qureshi "for you to worship Lot, Uzzat, Hubal, etc is BETTER than Islam
--it is better than what Muhammad has brought "
--the Qureshi listened to the Jews, and are condemned to abide in the hellfire forever

Democracy, capitalism, ANY made-made ism and schism is a taghoot

--the kuffar of America said they invaded Iraq to liberate people with DEMOCRACY
--democracy is NOT working for the kuffar, so why would it work for us?
--Al Gore won the election against George Bush (in US) but he didn’t win the presidency
--this proves that democracy is not working in their own lands-- therefore it will not work for us

Nigeria most corrupted nation (Pakistan is second)

--we must believe in a theocracy
--democracy : the government of the people, for the people, and by the people
--therefore in a democratic parliament, YOUR LORD ALLAH is insignificant
--democracy is majority rule : if the majority votes for homosexuality, they pass the bill , etc.
--democracy is majoritarianism

Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah swt Then will you not be reminded? (45:23)

--the false god of democracy is the hawa, the evil and corrupted desires

--these people who are promoting democracy in the Muslim worlds

--they are lowlife scum of the earth and hypocrites

Algeria: the Muslims won in a democratic election and they wanted an Islamic state
--the kuffar came and did not allow it
--in the Gaza strip, the people voted for Hamas
--in a democratic way!
--yet the kuffar did not allow this

--you cant beat the kuffar at their own game because a kaafirs has no principles

--you cant use democracy to beat democracy

7. The kaafir institutions: (The UN, NATO, and IMF)
--the moment you join something like the UN and give them your bayah, you become a kaafir
--see: 47:25-26

Lo! those who turn back after the guidance hath been manifested unto them, Satan hath seduced them, and He giveth them the rein. (25) That is because they say unto those who hate what Allah hath revealed: We will obey you in some matters; and Allah knoweth their secret talk. (26)

--if you give them your bayah -- you have turned into an apostate!

8. The kaafir governments and the apostate regimes

Ibn Taymiyyah said: And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Sharia other than the Sharia of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it. Majmua Al-Fataawa: Vol 28, p. 524.
