Recapping some Hadith re: the prophet’s salah from the dars last night:

Imam Nawawi mentions in the Majmu‘ (3.454) from Abu Dawud and others with a sound chain of narrators on the authority Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr, that he described the prayer of the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) by saying, “He would point with his finger while supplicating without moving it.”: As for what is present in the narration that mentions, that he (Allah bless him and grant him peace) “used to move it”, the expression, “move it is an unreliable anomalous (Ar. shadhdh) narration because the narrator who relates [m this Hadith] on the authority of the Companion Wael Ibn Hujr (Allah be pleased with him) contradicts everyone else who narrated from him

Narrated Ibn Mas'ud Allah's Apostle taught me the Tashah-hud as he taught me a Sura from the Quran, while my hand was between his hands. (Tashah-hud was) all the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be on you, O Prophet! Peace be on us and on the pious slaves of Allah I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I also testify that Muhammad is Allah's slave and His Apostle. (We used to recite this in the prayer) during the lifetime of the Prophet , but when he had died, we used to say, "Peace be on the Prophet." Bukhari -Volume 8, Book 74, Number 281

--after the Rasool (saws) died, they quit saying asalamualayka and they said asalam ala nabi
--quit saying as-salamu alaika because Rasulullah saws is dead

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘When any one of you prostrates, let him not go down as the camel does; let him put his hands down before his knees.’” (Reported by Ahmad (2/381), Abu Dawood, al-Tirmidhi, and al-Nisaa’i.

Wa'il b. Hajr said "I prayed with Prophet Muhammad(saw) and he put his right hand over his left hand over his chest."(Ibn Khuzaimah, Abu Dawud, Muslim

The Prophet (Sallalahu alaihi wa salaam) said, “Pray as you have seen me praying. (Sahih Bukhari Book 1 Vol 1, Hadith 604)

Ya-Sin. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.] (36.1)
--no one knows the meaning of verse 1 except for ALLAH
--Mu'tazilites claim they know the meaning of verse 1

Quran is full of wisdom
By the Quran, full of wisdom (i.e. full of laws, evidences, and proofs), (36.2)


1. ALLAH HIMSELF is the Author of the Quran, and He does not write while being confused
--he is All-Wise so His book is wise

2. ALLAH chose to reveal the Quran in the best of language : Arabic
3. It suits its environment and its people: Surahs in Makkah focused on Tawheed
--while the Surahs in Madina were related to Fiqh, Shariah...
--the Surahs of medina are long Surahs regarding Shariah law
--the Surahs of Mecca are short Surahs regarding tawheed
--Surahs in Makkah are short and the Surahs of Madina are long**

4. It is easy for us to memorize
5. It coincides w/ science

He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. (55.19)

There's two types of water: salt and fresh
--there's barriers between them
--between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. 55.20

Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? (55:21)

This is a scientific fact mentioned in the Qur'an
--no scientist can say he read something in the Quran which is not a fact


Allah said "your lying, sinful forehead'
--the forehead is where we create lies

The Bible, contrast to the Quran, causes many people become atheists
--why? because the Bible has so many mistakes

Biblical mistake: Leviticus 11:6 - And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

6. The Quran doesn't put a burden on us more than we can bear

our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. 2:286

7. The Quran was revealed to answer problems that Muhammad (saws) encountered

The kaafir is jealous of us: our deen, our saum, our salah
--we will discuss the slander of Aisha

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah, 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. (24.11)

SHIITES: 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)

ifk= a great slander

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

--At times of Imam Mahdi, he will implement the Hudud for committing zina
--they also believe ALLAH lied to protect her.

The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

Shiites are Jews .... their founder was a Jew ... they claim to be Muslims
--Abdullah ibn Saba is the founder of Shiiasm

8. The Qur'an has no contradictions or far-fetchedness
--contemplate on the Qur'an which is from Allah tala
--if it had been from other than ALLAH, you would’ve found in it many errors

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

9. The Quran contains predictions

A war was imminent between the Romans and Persians
--war between Romans and Persians took place and the outcome of the war was predicted in Quran
--Abu Jahl was cheering for the Persians (his pagan brother)
--Muslims cheered for Romans and the pagans cheered for the Persians
--the Persians won the war and the pagans were teasing the Christians
--smear, sneer and jeer campaigns
--Romans were Christians and Persians were Fire worshippers***

Alif-Lam-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. The Romans have been defeated. In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. 30: 1-3

Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians), 30:4

--Romans were first defeated and thereafter they will be victorious in 3 to 9 years as predicted in Quran
--Believers will rejoice at the victory of the Romans
--the Romans eventually came back and defeated the Persians, as predicted in the Quran
--all predictions will come to pass
--``Who laugh last, laugh best`

Qur'anic prediction:
--Abu Lahab will died as a kaafir

--Had the Sahabah approached Abu Lahab for dawah, they would have disbelieved in Quran

Perish the two hands of Abu Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! His wealth and his children (etc.) will not benefit him! He will be burnt in a Fire of blazing flames! 111. 1-3

And his wife too, who carries wood (thorns of Sadan which she used to put on the way of the Prophet (Peace be upon him), or use to slander him) . In her neck is a twisted rope of Masad (palm fibre). 111. 4-5

--all future predictions will come to pass at its appointed times

And when the Word (of torment) is fulfilled against them, We shall bring out from the earth a beast to them, which will speak to them because mankind believed not with certainty in Our Ayat (Verses of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad SAW). 27:82

27:82 will come to pass: a beast will come to people in Makkah and speak to them
--he will brand kuffar as kuffar and Muslims as Muslims on their foreheads
--beast will be here at the time of Dajjal

7 signs will occur before the occurrence of the Hour
**Sahih Hadith says we will be gathered in Jerusalem***

To be on the Sirat al Mustaqeen, we must have three things:
1. Correct Aqeeda
2. Correct Fiqh
3. Correct Manhaj

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

--Allah tala is on the throne but HOW, we don't need to know
--not the aqeeda of the Deobandis, Sufis, Tablighi jammat, Mu`tazilites`, Shiite, etc..
--none of the 4 Imams believed Allah is everywhere
--ALLAH is ON His throne as stated in the Quran

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "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

FALSE AQEEDA: Democracy is Islamic because we have a Shura system
--some people say Shaikh Faisal doesn't make enough takfeer
--some make takfir before giving the hujjah (this is wrong)
--when the Khawarijj emerged, Ibn Abass was sent to give them the hujjah
--so we do as Ali ibn Talib did: we give hujjah first
--masjids don't talk about tawheed, they talk about adab and fiqh
-- if the person is worshipping the grave, committing shirk,
--you are allowed to make takfir before you give the hujjah
--aqeedah is fiqh al akbar

However...if the person does blatant shirk, ie grave-worship, then you can make takfir first

The greatest fiqh is the aqeeda ...

7 Conditions of Shahadah
1. Knowledge of the Shahadah
2. Yaqeen -- You cannot doubt your Shahadah
3. Believe in your heart and testify w/ your tongue [Abu Taalib’s plight]
4. Surrender to Qur’an and Sunnah
5. Sidq [condemns all shades of falsehood]
6. Singularity of devotion
7. Al walaa wal baraa [loving and hating for the sake of Allah swt]

Allah: I am the MIGHTY and I am the MERCIFUL
--why did he mention these attributes, side by side?
--when you have the power to take revenge, but you exercise mercy
--your opponent appreciates the mercy

US invaded 2 Muslim countries as revenge for September 11
--they say 3,000 were killed but they have now killed over 1 million Muslims
--they thirst for Muslim blood
--they haven't pulled out their troops yet because their thirst is insatiable

Revenge can be your own downfall
--what makes them think they can sustain 2 wars simultaneously?
--the infidels: their thirst for Muslim blood is insatiable

Human beings are forgetful
--messages must be followed by other messengers
--in order that you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, so they are heedless. 36:6
--insaan (forgetful)
--2:282 is the longest ayah and speaks about money

You should not become weary to write it (your contract). 2:282

1. some people borrow money
2. some people forget
--you need 4 copies and 2 witnesses

But take witnesses whenever you make a commercial contract. 2:282
A lying, sinful forelock! 96:16

The Quran was burned by the kuffar because our book is the haqq [Quran]
--theirs has lies
--they are jealous

They are jealous about the noor on our face
--we look 10 years younger (self-contentment) (tama'neena)
--they envy our family structure
--our kids look after us .. but kuffar parents are dumped in the nursing homes
--they envy our morality
--but they want to arrest us for wearing the clothing of taqwah

Shaikh in London:
--police never said anything about kaafirs blasting loud music
--but if you call the athan, they say we disturb the peace
-- what evil kaafirs they are!

And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly. 12:103

Indeed the Word (of punishment) has proved true against most of them, so they will not believe. 36:7

The kuffar are not prepared to take a look at the haqq

And We have put a barrier before them, and a barrier behind them, and We have covered them up, so that they cannot see. 36:9

Everyone is Mecca expected the Rasool (saws) to go north, but he went south, toward Yemen
--look how wise he was!!
--this is why we study seerah
--the Sunnah of Muhammad is hikmah (wisdom)

It is the same to them whether you warn them or you warn them not, they will not believe. 36:10

--this ayah refers to the kaafir who is adamant in his kufr

Shaikh in Africa:
--450 Christians took Shahadah
--many in Africa have 50 people listening to dars from one computer
--the Kenyan government were afraid Shaikh Faisal would revert too many and tilt the balance of power
--they said they were told to take him into custody by the 'donors'
--we know who the 'donors' are
--not every kaafir is the same .. see 61:9

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) 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 SAW) hate (it). 61:9

White man in American believes in God more than in Europe
--not all kaafirs are the same
--we can't paint them w/ the same brush

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

We give invite Christians to Islam but we don't invite Jews to Islam
--are we happy to abandon the Jew to his disbelief?
--the Jews and Christians will not abandon their kufr till we bring them hujjah

Shaikh in north London
--there were 7 sisters who needed to speak w/ him
--there were about 10 sisters there and they wanted him to give Shahadah to a Hindu girl
--everyone started to cry
--esp the best friend .. why? She didn’t' want her best friend to die and go to Hellfire
--give hope

We are guaranteed Islam will be victorious over other religions

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) 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 SAW) hate (it). (61:9)

Shaikh gave a lot of Shahadahs when he was is prison
--Shaikh was in prison for 4.5 years
