-60- The Evil of Asabiyya

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: The Evil of Asabiyya
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

(morning dars: 6.4.11)

And when they (Jews) meet those who believe (Muslims), they say, "We believe", but when they meet one another in private, they say, "Shall you (Jews) tell them (Muslims) what Allah has revealed to you [Jews, about the description and the qualities of Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him , that which are written in the Taurat (Torah)] that they (Muslims) may argue with you (Jews) about it before your Lord?" Have you (Jews) then no understanding? (Al-Baqarah 2:76)

Jews pretended to be Muslims:
--3 Jewish tribes were in Madinah (each hoped that the last prophet would come from their tribe)
--but he didn't emerge from their tribe but the Qureshi tribe
--so they refused to follow Muhammad (saws) all in the name of asabiyya (tribalism)
--the worst racist is the one who knows the truth but chooses the Hellfire

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad or the Ka'bah at Makkah) as they recognize their sons. But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it - [i.e. the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:146)

--they were able to recognize that Muhammad (saws) was a real prophet
--the same as a father knows his own kids
--they knew his answers could only come from a prophet
--they asked what was the 1st food in Paradise? Answer: Whales!
--they asked why sometimes children resemble their father or mother
--Answer: the one who ejaculates first determines the strong physical traits
--so they were definitely convinced he was the last prophet

There are 5 Madhabs
1. Ibn Hanbal
2. Ibn Hanifa
3. Imam Shafi’i
4. Imam Malik
5. Ibliss - is the 5th madhab!

(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)

"I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)


Ibliss was made from fire so he thought he was better than Adam (made from clay)
--Ibliss was the 1st Mutazalite and the first racist

The story of the woman in the market
--a Muslimah went into a market; when she came out, a man pulled on her hijab so it came off her
--it revealed her and so a brother killed that man. Why?
--if you are a real Muslim, you have jealousy over all Muslim women to protect the sisters
--a dayooth (no izza or jealousy) is not a characteristic of a true Muslim

Because the Jews broke a peace treaty
--the Rasool (saws) made them leave Madinah
--he gave away their homes
--there were 3 Jewish tribes broke their treaties
--the last was @ the Battle of the Ditch
--when the last treaty was broken, a verdict was passed on them but
--they didn't want Muhammad (saws) to pass it; they wanted Saud
--Saud agreed to pass the verdict only if Muhammad (saws) didn't veto it

But there was a difference in how each would have passed the verdict:
--the Rasool (saws) was sent as a mercy to mankind
--and Saud chose to chop off the head of the fighting men
--Saud was a common man and had no mercy!

And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Anbiya 21:107)

When a scholar of Islam dies, animals cry because that scholar told the people to be gentle w/ animals

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad or the Ka'bah at Makkah) as they recognize their sons. But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it - [i.e. the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:146)

Had Muhammad (saws) been born to a Jewish tribe, they would have followed him
--but Muhammad was born an Arab and this is why the Arab race is the Master race

In the name of asabiyya, the turned their back on Paradise and chose the Hellfire

He in Whose Hand is my soul! No member of this Ummah, no Jew or Christian, hears of me but dies without believing in what I was sent with, but will be among the people of the Fire.) Muslim

Know they (Jews) not that Allah knows what they conceal and what they reveal? (Al-Baqarah 2:77)

And there are among them (Jews) unlettered people, who know not the Book, but they trust upon false desires and they but guess. (Al-Baqarah 2:78)


Allah tala knows what the Jews believe and what they don't
--we're allowed to base our decisions / eeman only on yaqeen (certainty)
--Hadiths must be strong to base your belief on them
--we must follow what is certain (yaqeen) and avoid what is dhann (suspicion) / dhannee (doubtful)

Two dajeels: qat'3nee (certain) and dhannee (doubtful)
--we must base our creed only on qat'3ee
--but a shaikh can use a weak Hadith to encourage us to do righteous deeds
--if fabricated Hadith was quoted to shaikh's class in university, there would be uproar

When people give you rumors, ask them to come here and speak their belief speak it publicly
--some Saudi Salafis are actually atheists
--for the record, Shaikh Faisal DID graduate from university
--this group is a cursed group so they are desperate
--they made up their own religion
--make baraa on these people

ANYONE WHO SAYS TO DISMANTLE THE SHARIAH IS A MINOR KUFR, IS AN ENEMY OF ALLAH TALA


"A scholar who abandons what has learnt from the Quran and the Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teaching of Allah and His Messenger is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter" Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Volume 35/373
