Tafseer Surah Baqarah: Is the Bible God's word?
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(morning dars: 6.14.11)
And there are among them (Jews) unlettered people, who know not the Book, but they trust upon false desires and they but guess. (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:78)
The Jews were following their false desires
--the followed dhann (suspicion)
--some suspicion is a sin
O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. (12)
--dhann could never show the truth
--people are too proud to say, "I don't know"
--so they pass dodgy fatawas
Most of them follow not but conjecture. Assuredly conjecture can by no means take the place of truth. Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do. (Yunus 10:36)
Conjecture (guess) can not take the place of the truth
--dhann (suspicion) can not be used as hujjah (evidence)
--dhann is dhann = an assumption, allegation, suspicion
--these things do not take the place of the haqq
--Allah tala said people trust their false desires instead of The Book
--the 1st word Allah tala revealed to Muhammad (saws) in the cave was "iqra" (read)
--this word was revealed in Ramadan, on the 27th night
--(revealed in the perfect month)
--we don't practice our deen based on "guess-work"
--practice your deen with yaqeen (certainty) not suspicion
Say: My Lord forbiddeth only indecencies, such of them as are apparent and such as are within, and sin and wrongful oppression, and that ye associate with Allah that for which no warrant hath been revealed, and that ye tell concerning Allah that which ye know not. (Al-Araf 7:33)
Abstain from sin and shameful intercourse, oppression, shirk, speaking about Allah tala w/o knowledge
Remember the story of the man w/ the cracked skull?
--he was injured on the battlefield and cracked his skull
--during the night, he had a wet dream and wanted to make Tayammum
--but a fatawa was passed that he needed to make ghusl
--when he did, the water went into his crack and killed him
--Muhammad (saws) said it was as if their fatawa (them) killed him
Why do people pass dodgy fatawas?
--passing dodgy fatawas can hurt and kill people
--people pass dodgy fatawas because they are paid to do so
--if a shaikh passes a dodgy fatawa and he needs to make tauba, he must make it publicly
Islam is a sleeping lion so some pass dodgy fatawas
--these apostate regimes give their bayah to Illuminati
--they don't teach al walaa wal baraa
The tauba of a shaikh is NOT the same as tauba of a layman
--the MADkhalis say "maybe bin Baaz made tauba"
--but bin Baaz's tauba needed to be made public
Except such of them -as repent and amend and make manifest (the truth). These it is toward whom I relent. I am the Relenting, the Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:160)
These wicked scholars misguide millions w/ their dodgy fatawas
--so their tauba must be made public
--Allah tala said to declare the haqq (truth) openly
--He tala only accepts tauba if it is made publicly (from a shaikh)
--the MADkhalis will try to con us: "but you can't con me, I know my deen, see 2:160
--the tauba of a layman can be done secretly
--example: if he relapses and drinks alcohol, he can make tauba privately
Examples from the Bible of its contradictions and errors:
Leviticus 11:6 - And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
--rabbits don’t chew cud
Deuteronomy 14:11-18 -- 11 You may eat any clean bird. 12 But these you may not eat: the eagle, the vulture, the black vulture, 13 the red kite, the black kite, any kind of falcon, 14 any kind of raven, 15 the horned owl, the screech owl, the gull, any kind of hawk, 16 the little owl, the great owl, the white owl, 17 the desert owl, the osprey, the cormorant, 18 the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat. 18 the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat.
--bats are not birds
Jeremiah 25:27 “Then tell them, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword I will send among you.’
--God never would have instructed man to drink and vomit
--many Europeans became atheists because of the Biblical contradictions
--how absurd to say God told us to drink and vomit on ourselves!
The mistakes in the Bible must be taught to refute that the Bible is the word of God
--it is not!
--there are so many contradictions in the Bible
--Allah tala is not the author of contradictions!
--Job’s verses indicate that he endorsed wife-swapping
Job 31: 9, 10 -- If mine heart have been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbour's door job Then let my wife grind unto another, and let others bow down upon her.
New Living Translation of Job 31:9, 10 -- "If my heart has been seduced by a woman, or if I have lusted for my neighbor's wife then let my wife belong to another man; let other men sleep with her.
Job 31:9-10 If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, then may my wife grind another man’s grain. and may other men sleep with her. then let my wife belong to[a] another man; let other men sleep with her. 11 For lust is a shameful sin, a crime that should be punished.
The above verses show that wife-swapping was encouraged by Prophet Job [that is absurd]!
Genesis 19:35-37 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. The two who were said to have sexual relations with Lot were apparently “virgin” daughters, those who were betrothed.
--would Allah have endorsed incest that Lut had w/ his daughters?
--they both bore him a son; one was named Moab
--it’s easy to refute the Bible by posting their absurd statements that were NEVER said by Allah tala
Genesis 19:35-37 So that night they got him drunk, and the younger daughter had intercourse with him. Again he was so drunk that he didn't know it. In this way both of Lot's daughters became pregnant by their own father. The older daughter had a son, whom she named Moab. He was the ancestor of the present-day Moabites.
These verses justify incest:
--many fathers in daar ul harb have s-x w/ their daughters
--the wife turns a blind-eye to pretend she doesn't know it
--incest is rife in daar ul harb and the Bible is to be blamed
--we see that the Bible is quite dangerous
Alcohol is rife in daar ul harb and the Bible is to be blamed [Jeremiah 25:27]
Wife-swapping is rife in daar ul harb and the Bible is to be blamed [Job 31:9]
What's taboo in the eyes of Allah tala, the Bible justifies!
--all the haraam activities that the Bible glorifies, how can this book be the word of God?
--the kuffar are naive
--the Bible says in John 5:37, that we can not see God
--but in Genesis 32:30, it says that Jacob saw God, face to face
We've listed many Bible contradictions
--it's ridiculous to attribute the Bible to Allah tala
--the Christians prefer to die as infidels rather than accept the haqq
--they try to blackmail us saying if we don't believe it, we're going to Hell
--we have debunked their book: it doesn't make sense
--some soccer teams are losing in the last few minutes but they play for pride
--Fir'oonic Syndrome: the Pharaoh held on to falsehood because of PRIDE
--Abu Jahl and Abu Talib had the same problem (in the name of pride)
--the only Christians who hung on to Christianity are the ones who are full of pride
--when you attribute a book like the Bible to Allah tala, it is an insult to Him
--when the kuffar burned the Qur'an on September 11,
--it was because they were jealous of us for our Qur'an
--because it doesn't have these contradictions
--it doesn't have rifts between ayahs
The Jews claimed that the fire would not touch us except for a few days
And they (Jews) say, "The Fire (i.e. Hell-fire on the Day of Resurrection) shall not touch us but for a few numbered days." Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him to them): "Have you taken a covenant from Allâh, so that Allâh will not break His Covenant? Or is it that you say of Allâh what you know not?" (Al-Baqarah 2:80)
What is the Muslim concept of the Hellfire?
1) if a Muslim goes to the Hellfire for drinking alcohol or having girls...
--he comes out of it with the intercession of Muhammad (saws)
--he is not there forever
2) if a fake Muslim goes to Hellfire, he will in the bottom and be there forever
--this is the munafiqh and he is worse than a kaafir
Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. (Surah An-Nisa 4:145)
3) when a kaafir goes to hellfire, he is there forever
--it's impossible for him to get out (there's no one to intercede for him)
--when their skin melts away from the fire, we will give them new skin again and again
Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allâh is Ever Most Powerful, All-Wise. (Surah An-Nisa 4:56)
The section of the Hellfire where the faasiqoon were kept, will go out
--when they are transferred from Hellfire into Paradise
--but the section where the kaafiroon are kept, will remain forever
--there's no intercession for a kaafir
Those are our concepts of the Hellfire, likewise
--there is freezing temperatures in the Hellfire
People in Paradise will see the people in Hellfire
--such as the wicked and sinful scholars
--we get a 'peep' into the Hellfire
--and we will ask them, "why are you there"
--they will say they enjoined evil and forbade the good
It is reported in ‘as-Silsilah as-Sahihah’ (1457) that the Prophet said: “Hell complained to its Lord, saying: “Parts of me have consumed the other parts.” So, He allowed it two breaths of exhalation: one in winter and one in summer. As for its breath in winter, that is the bitter cold, and its breath in the summer is the extreme heat.”
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The (Hell) Fire complained to its Lord saying, 'O my Lord! My different parts eat up each other.' So, He allowed it to take two breaths, one in the winter and the other in summer, and this is the reason for the severe heat and the bitter cold you find (in weather)." (Bukhari 4:482)
The difference between scholars:
Sinful scholar - has a girlfriend, for example, while he is married
Wicked scholar - passes a Fatawa that it is halal to have a girlfriend
--he makes up his own Islam (Hislam)
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
Q: With philosophy they say death is basically the end of us all and when you die you enter into nothingness and timelessness. Why do these philosophers and atheists say this is there a reason why
Answer - the reason is because they were very sinful in the dunya
--they did so much haraam that now they comfort themselves in false hood
--PEOPLE FIND COMFORT IN FALSEHOOD
--why would a gay man believe in Judgment Day?
--it would make his life here too uncomfortable
--so he comforts himself in falsehood
A MUNAFIQH IS WORSE THAN A KAAFIR - HE IS IN HELLFIRE FOREVER
