Tafseer Surah Baqarah: Ibliss, the 1st Mu’tazalite
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(morning dars: 6.2.11)
Al-Baqarah 2:75: Do you (faithful believers) covet that they will believe in your religion in spite of the fact that a party of them (Jewish rabbis) used to hear the Word of Allâh [the Taurât (Torah)], then they used to change it knowingly after they understood it? (75)
Al Baqarah 2:75 says that Allah told us that the Jews will not believe in the Words of ALLAH
--ALLAH says that Jews change the Words of ALLAH.
--No one likes a person who is not honest.
--What about someone who changes the Kalam(speech of ALLAH?
--The worst person is the one who changes the Speech of ALLAH.
As-Saff 61:7 - And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allâh, while he is being invited to Islâm? And Allâh guides not the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk (As-Saff 61:7)
The person is the one who lies on Allah (tala)
--He is making haraam what ALLAH has made halal and vice versa.
And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allâh, while he is being invited to Islâm? And Allâh guides not the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk (As-Saff 61:7)
He is the worst person and the most evil of all creatures for he changes what ALLAH has said.
--if you make zina and khamr halal, you will have millions of followers.
--many think that if you follow a wicked scholar, on Judgment Day, you’ll be able to
get away with it
--many scholars are corrupted to the extent where they said to their students that
it is ok to sleep around with
kaafira in Darul Harb; these Kaafir women are sabee.
But people find comfort in Falsehood!
When those who were followed, disown (declare themselves innocent of) those who followed (them), and they see the torment, then all their relations will be cut off from them. Al-Baqarah 2:166
Allah will dump the wicked scholars and their students in the fire.
And those who followed will say: "If only we had one more chance to return (to the worldly life), we would disown (declare ourselves as innocent from) them as they have disowned (declared themselves as innocent from) us." Thus Allâh will show them their deeds as regrets for them. And they will never get out of the Fire. (Al Baqarah 2:167)
Wicked scholars will renounce their students to save themselves from the punishment and wrath of ALLAH.
“THOSE AMONGST THE PEOPLE RECEIVING THE SEVEREST PUNISHMENT ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION ARE THE SCHOLAR WHO IS NOT GIVEN BENEFIT THROUGH HIS KNOWLEDGE BY ALLAH.” At-Tabaraanee & Ad-Daarimee
People will try to lie their way out because of raging fire on Yawm al Qiyamat
And that He might know the hypocrites, unto whom it was said: Come, fight in the way of Allah, or defend yourselves. They answered: If we knew aught of fighting we would follow you. On that day they were nearer disbelief than faith. They utter with their mouths a thing which is not in their hearts. Allah is best Aware of what they hide. (Al-E-Imran 3:167)
Wicked scholars say:
You can join kaafir army and that riba is halal or is it ok to take off your hijab or spy on Muslims, or voting is ok or shirk or kufr akbar are ok (such as going to graves, etc)
--if you have no Aql, you are a beast.
--no woman will marry a man who lacks intellect.
--women ask about the aqeedah and mental capacities when nikah proposals come to
Verily! The worst of (moving) living creatures with Allâh are the deaf and the dumb, who understand not (i.e. the disbelievers) (22) An-Anfal 8:22
ALLAH said the worst of creatures are the ones who cannot think for themselves in ALLAH's sight.
The Prophet said: ‘A believer is not stung from the same hole twice.’(Sahîh Bukhârî, Sahîh Muslim)
ALLAH said both the scholars and students in fire.
--You can blind follow on Fiqh issues.
--It's haraam to blind-follow on Aqeedah issues.
--Scholars have to be following one of the 4 great Imams
4 great imams: Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Shafi'i and Ibn Hanbal
"If a woman asks her husband for a divorce, for no reason, then the smell of paradise is forbidden for her" At-Tirmidhi narrated it; he said this is a Hasan Hadith [Hasan means ‘good’]
Only Khawarij believe that a Muslim can be in the fire forever. Al-Isra 17:23
And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. (23) Al-Isra 17:23
Dawud az Zahir has a funny understanding about the Deen, so Shaikh does not like that Madhab.
The man has permission to see her face before agreeing to marry as the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) said, "Go and look at her (the woman you are considering marrying) because this will help your time together to be strengthened.” (Ahmad)
Imam Ahmed kicked out az Zahir from his circle because Dawud said Quran was created.
--He then went on to create his own Madhab.
--Dawud takes everything from Quran and Sunnah literally.
--This is wrong.
--Many think they can blame the scholars on Judgment Day.
--People like wicked scholars because they think DEEN is made easy for them.
In UK, a scholar said Muslim men can take kaafira women as their girlfriends:
--the reason being, UK is Darul Harb.
When those who were followed, disown (declare themselves innocent of) those who followed (them), and they see the torment, then all their relations will be cut off from them. (166) And those who followed will say: "If only we had one more chance to return (to the worldly life), we would disown (declare ourselves as innocent from) them as they have disowned (declared themselves as innocent from) us." Thus Allâh will show them their deeds as regrets for them. And they will never get out of the Fire. (167) Al-Baqarah 2:166-167
It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)
You can only take captives only when you subdue the land.
There are 3 Daars
1) Daar al Kufr: Shariah is not being implemented, but Muslims are not targets (ie Jamaica)
2) Daar al Islam: Shariah is implemented (ie KSA)
3) Daar al Harb: governed by kuffar, their agenda is to kill Muslims, (ie Iraq and Afghanistan)
The Prime Minister, Bruce Golding, did not accept the offer of Bush to go to war.
--He turned out the offer twice.
--This made front page news.
--Others might have seize the opportunity to please America, but Bruce Golding did
--Bruce Golding said Shaikh must get a ride on a jet because he is from Jamaican soil
Darul Harb is any country who has Muslim blood in its hands.
--Daar ar Ridda: majority have apostated from Islam...such as Pakistan
--India is daar al harb: they kill Muslims in their own land
--Many people, when they see $$, they dump Islam
--They want glitter and comfort of this dunya
Wicked scholars said you can join and ally with the kuffar.
--They make it halal to join CIA, FBI, MI5...
--They are obvious and they cannot hide their true colours.
--MI5 had so many applications.
--They had to turn back people.
--Blackburn are Deobandis.
--They do not know about Tawheed Hakimiyya and al Walaa wal Baraa.
--Deobandis = Barelvis (like cousins in their aqeeda)
--They hate each other but they are similar in Aqeeda.
Kaafir will never respect you because you sell your own kind.
--Shaikh learned, in his African tour, things he did not learn in university
--such as a Jamaican passport carries much weight
--He did not need visa to enter many countries! Even Turkey!
There’s 3 types of scholars:
1st type: Sinful scholar (He drinks or has a girlfriend when he is married)
2nd type: Wicked scholar (He passes fatwas to change Islam; makes up his own religion)
3rd type: Sincere scholar (He teaches Islam as it is from Quran and Sunnah)
Wicked scholars must make Tawba in public.
--MADkhalis will ask you, “What if Bin Baaz made Tawba?”
--It needed to be made publicly.
--We say Bin Baaz's Tawba had to be public and not private.
--The hujjah is in Quran.
--Scholars are public figures; therefore they must rectify their mistakes publicly.
--They must repent and take back their false Fataawa in public.
--People learn and look up to the scholars. A scholar is not a layman.
--They must repent and take back their false fatwa in public.
--People learn and look up to the scholars. A scholar is not a layman.
--If you are a scholar and you pass a fatwa saying it is ok to join with kuffar, you
may be killed.
Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed). These, I will accept their repentance. And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:160)
1) Shaytan (Ibliss) was the first Mu’tazalite (Iblis said he is not mentally content)
-- Iblis thought he was better because he was made from fire.
Iblis was not convinced that Adam was better as ALLAH has said.
2) Son of Nuh (as) son was the 2nd Mu`tazilite
--Said he’d seek refuge in a mountain, not God
-He used his Aql over the command of his father.
Nur's son: As the boat was carrying them in waves like mountains, Noah called his son, who was apart: Son, get on the boat with us, and don’t be an unbeliever. He answered I will take refuge on a mountain that will protect me from the water. Noah answered, There is no protection today from God’s command except for those who receive his mercy. Surah Hud 40-46
(Allâh) said: "What prevented you (O Ibliss) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Ibliss said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)
3) Ibn Abdullah said Qurbani will be ja’d ibn Dirham on Eid.
--On Eid, Khalid ibn Abdullah told the people to bring out their animals for sacrifice while he chopped off the head of this evil and corrupted scholar on Eid.
--Ibn Dirham said ALLAH did not speak to Musa on Mount Sinai.
--Ibn Dirham 3rd Mu`tazilite in history.
He said: I shall betake me to some mountain that will save me from the water. (Noah) said: This day there is none that saveth from the commandment of Allah save him on whom He hath had mercy. And the wave came in between them, so he was among the drowned. (11:43)
Jinn are made from smokeless fire, therefore,
scholars have said that is the reason why they are quick to anger.
