It is the same to them whether you warn them or you warn them not, they will not believe. (Ya-Sin 36:10)

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 Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed SAW) hate (it). (As-Saff 61:9)

Every kaafir can not be painted w/ the same brush

Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and among Al-Mushrikûn, were not going to leave (their disbelief) until there came to them clear evidence. (Al-Baiyinah 98:1)
We're not to give dawah to everyone
Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them). (Al-A'la 87:9)

So the only time you're allowed to give dawah is if the person is interested
If they are rebellious against the haqq, you are not allowed
Because they are not interested
Allah put a condition on u giving dawah

You can only warn him who follows the Reminder (the Qur'an), and fears the Most Beneficent (Allah) unseen. Bear you to such one the glad tidings of forgiveness, and a generous reward (i.e. Paradise). (Ya-Sin 36:11)
Verily, We give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before (them), and their traces [their footsteps and walking on the earth with their legs to the mosques for the five compulsory congregational prayers, Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) and all other good and evil they did, and that which they leave behind], and all things We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book. (Ya-Sin 36:12)

Allah blessed Jesus with such a miracle

Whosoever introduces a good practice in Islam, there is for him its reward and the reward of those who act upon it after him without that detracting from their rewards in the slightest. And whosoever introduces an evil practice in Islam will bear its sin and the sins of those who will act upon it after him without that detracting from their rewards in the slightest.” (Related by Muslim in his Sahih [Authentic Hadith Book])

Narrated 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "None is killed unjustly, but the first son of Adam will have a part of its burden." Sufyan said, "...a part of its blood because he was the first to establish the tradition of murdering." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 423)

The man who came from Syria with an idol, lua ibn Amr
he took the Arabs away from tawheed
that Ibrahim had taught them
he introduced the Arabs to paganism
whenever you introduce an evil thing to a society and the people copy you: you will share in their sin!
imam = book
Shia say no, the Sunni’s got it wrong
SHIITES

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)

They claim their Shia imams make no mistakes
SHIITES

The Imams have knowledge of the past and future; and nothing is hidden from them. ( Al-Kafi vol.1 p.260 )

SHIITE DEBATE ON PALTALK
Shaikh gave them enough rope to hang themselves
--they scurried away
--we allow them to talk on the mic, giving them enough rope to hang themselves
--SHIA said it was not an honour to be a companion of the prophet saw
--it was a very fair debate: but they were outdone by QURANIC HAQQ
--when they took the mic all they done was make a fool of themselves
--when you read tafseer of the Shiites..they say it is referring to the Shia imam and not a book

"Verily, Allah commands you that you slaughter a cow." (Al-Baqarah 2:67)

Shia's claim that when Allah talks about a cow in this ayah he is referring to Aisha (ra)

And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character. (Al-Qalam 68:4)

Shiites have their own tafseer
We can't take our deen from a zindeeq (heretic)
it is dangerous for you to take your deen from a heretic (zindeeq)
you can take fiqh from Mu`tazilite but not your aqeedah
Aqeedah MUST be taken from Ahl Assunnah wal Jama3ah

And (remember) when We said to the angels; "Prostrate to Adam." So they prostrated except Iblis (Satan). He was one of the jinns; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblis) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an evil is the exchange for the Zalimûn (polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc). (Al-Kahf 18:50)

Made tafseer that Iblis was from the angels but this tafseer goes against 18:50
He was one of the jinns

And put forward to them a similitude; the (story of the) dwellers of the town, [It is said that the town was Antioch (Antakiya)], when there came Messengers to them. (Ya-Sin 36:13)
When We sent to them two Messengers, they belied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: "Verily! We have been sent to you as Messengers." (Ya-Sin 36:14)
They (people of the town) said: "You are only human beings like ourselves, and the Most Beneficent (Allah) has revealed nothing, you are only telling lies." (Ya-Sin 36:15)

Whenever a person wants to be a kaafir or remain one: they find excuses for it
Excuse they gave in 36:15 : you are only human beings like us
They say we have needs like everyone else
--if an angel were sent to give us haqq, we would not follow them
--if an angel was sent, they would say the angels are too difficult to be imitated
Whenever ALLAH sends a messenger, the kuffar say "we cant follow them, because the messenger goes to the market place just like us" etc

The Messengers said: "Our Lord knows that we have been sent as Messengers to you, (Ya-Sin 36:16)

--kuffar accuse Messengers of lying

"And our duty is only to convey plainly (the Message)." (Ya-Sin 36:17)

Excuse they gave in 36:15 : you are only a human being like us, so why should we follow you ? -- then they also accused the messenger of lies
--But ALLAH knows they are Messengers
--when you give Hujjah against their sins, you tell them you are only to convey the Message and warn them of their wrongs
Whenever you see a person doing haraam : alcohol, girlfriend, gambling, praying to graves, etc : all you must do is establish the hujjah and tell them them that "my duty is just to give you the message"
--you can't guide people to Islam, only ALLAH guides whom HE wills

ALLAH FORGIVES WHOM HE WILL "A man said 'ALLAH will never forgive so and so" - ALLAH said 'Who are you to assume I wont forgive such a person? I've already forgiven him for his sins, and as for you IVE nullified all of your pious deeds for you statement" Sahih Muslim, Book 32, #6350

--Rasulullah saws gave Shahadah to a Jewish boy but he could not make his uncle become Muslim
--we cannot make Muslims, only Allah tala can
--you cannot change people's hearts as it is between ALLAH's two fingers
--ALLAH turns hearts as it pleases HIM
--Hadith saying ALLAH has fingers and hands, although they do not look like ours, we must believe in HIS Attributes

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. (Sad 38:75)

--do not try to describe the Attributes of ALLAH, the Sahabah never asked for descriptions to Rasulullah saws
-- read it, believe it, and leave it

Abdullah b. Amr b. al-'As reported that he heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the hearts of all the sons of Adam are between the two fingers out of the fingers of the Compassionate Lord as one heart. He turns that to any (direction) He likes. Then Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: O Allah, the Turner of the hearts, turn our hearts to Thine obedience. (Sahih Bukhari, Book 033, Number 6418)

--After the Salaf us-Saleh, the fitan started regarding the Attributes of ALLAH
-- some described and some denied, and some put a 'spin' on the ayah
--Some started to describe them, some denied them
-- they claim : two hands means two powers !
--they do not have any hujjah for their claim : they are speaking with no knowledge
--Deviants cannot even provide a da'eef Hadith to back up their claims
-- the worst liar is the one who fabricates a lie against Allah

They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (Ya-Sin 36:18)

--some people are afraid of hujjah that are being established against them
--such as: Barelvis, Shiites, Mu’tazilites, Qadiyanis, etc.

Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed. (Al-Baqarah 2:87)

--Jews used to kill the prophets because they were terrified and they know
--they will be accounted for their wrongs on Judgment Day, and they wish to use ignorance as an excuse

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord?" (Al-A'raf 7:172)

--As for Shirk, ignorance will not be enough to save them from the Wrath of ALLAH

They (people) said: "For us, we see an evil omen from you, if you cease not, we will surely stone you, and a painful torment will touch you from us." (Ya-Sin 36:18)

--they killed the Messengers to rid of the Hujjah against them

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (Al-Ma'idah 5:82)
Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say): "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

--Between Adam as and Noah as were 10 generations all upon Tawheed
--Prophet Nuh's people were the first kuffar
--Mawlid and Ta'weez came after the first three generations
--attend the circles of deviants when invited and invite them to Tawheed and the Aqeeda of Ahlus-Sunnah
--If you do not go, they will invite a deviant instead
--Bring CDs and DVDs, books..etc on our Aqeeda
--they saw the Messengers as an evil omen because the rain stopped falling
--evil omens are human concoctions
--some ignorants in the West fear the number 13, they consider it to be an evil omen
--they consider 13 to be evil because of the number of Disciples in his Last Supper
Qadr can be changed
--duaas can change the Qadr
--we Muslims do not believe in evil omens, we believe in the Qadr of ALLAH, all was written 50 000 years ago

"Whoever cancels one's intention to do something because of attiyarah (an evil omen), that one has committed shirk"(Imam Ahmad)
"Nothing could change the Qadar except Du`a’." (Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 5, Hadith no. 277; Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Vol. 3, Hadith no. 139; and classified as Hasan (good) Hadith by Al-Abaani in Sahih Al-Jami` Hadith no. 7687)”

Predestination can change such as praying salatul Istikhara and changing your mind and refuse to marry a certain individual

“Do you know what backbiting is?” They said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” He then said, “It is to say something about your brother that he would dislike.” Someone asked him, “But what if what I say is true?” The Messenger of Allah said, “If what you say about him is true, you are backbiting him, but if it is not true then you have slandered him.” (Muslim)

IGNORANCE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON JUDGMENT DAY
--pagans in Antakiyah, told the Messengers they would be stoned to death, they wanted to use ignorance as an excuse
7:172

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord?" (Al-A'raf 7:172)

--ALLAH took a covenant from us before we came on earth and we are a testimony against our own selves to our testimony
--we cannot use ignorance as an excuse because of 7:172

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say): "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

SHIRK IS ONE OF THE 7 GREATEST SINS:
Stay away from the seven destroyers." They said: O Messenger of Allah and what are they? He said: "Associating with Allah in worship, sorcery, the taking of a life which Allah has sanctified except rightfully, consuming interest, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing on the day of intense battle and slandering innocent, unknowing, believing women." Muslim & Bukhari

--those committing Shirk hope to use excuses but they will not be able to do so

Stay away from the seven destroyers." They said: O Messenger of Allah and what are they? He said: "Associating with Allah in worship, sorcery, the taking of a life which Allah has sanctified except rightfully, consuming interest, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing on the day of intense battle and slandering innocent, unknowing, believing women." Muslim & Bukhari

You are Muslim by conviction, not culture
Muslims by conviction have yaqeen (certainty)

They (Messengers) said: "Your evil omens be with you! (Do you call it "evil omen") because you are admonished? Nay, but you are a people Musrifûn (transgressing all bounds by committing all kinds of great sins, and by disobeying Allah). (Ya-Sin 36:19)

And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such life as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. (Al-Furqan 25:68)

Shariah law is for Muslim countries, not daar ul harb
--we can kill ]according to Shariah and in Muslim countries] but we can not murder
--under Shariah, we kill at least 12 people
--see: Mai'da 33 for hujjah on killing drug smugglers

The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. (Al-Ma'idah 5:33)
