-62- A Word to the Wise is Sufficient

Tafseer Surah Baqarah: A Word to the Wise is Sufficient
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

(morning dars: 6.5.11)

And when they fall in with those who believe, they say: We believe. But when they go apart one with another they say: Prate ye to them of that which Allah hath disclosed to you that they may contend with you before your Lord concerning it? Have ye then no sense? (Al-Baqarah 2:76)

--the Jews believe in the Day of Judgment
--they were sure the last prophet was coming (to Madinah)
--they were hoping he was coming from their race
--but Muhammad (saws) came from Qureshi (Arabs)
--they wanted him to be born rich but he wasn't
--but we can't tell Allah tala whom to bless

But Allâh chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allâh is the Owner of Great Bounty. (Al-Baqarah 2:105)

--"why was Muhammad an Arab?" the Jews said
--they didn't accept Allah's qadr (Allah's destiny)
--when we see our brothers having something expensive (luxury car),
--we should say QADR
--don’t be jealous
--we should want for him what we want for ourselves

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad SAW 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 SAW which are written in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel). (Al-Baqarah 2:146)

Buhaira protecting Muhammad (saws)
--Jews and Christians both recognize Muhammad (saws) as the prophet
--Buhaira recognized it and wanted it kept secret (he was afraid Muhammad would be killed)
--Abu Talib followed the advice of Buhaira to protect the Rasool (saws)
--Why? A word to the wise is sufficient!

Muhammad (saws) and his wife, Safiyya:
--Safiyya was a widow (her husband died in battle)
--She was one of two women brought to Muhammad (saws)
--He asked Bilal, "did Allah pluck mercy from you?"
--because Bilal let the women see where their husbands were killed
--Safiyya was a very pious Muslimah though she was Jewish heritage
--When the Rabbis preach about this, they lie and say Muhammad killed her husband and
--She married him to save her life
--"his-tory" is "his" side of a story (a lie)

Safiyya and her dream:
--She saw the moon landing in her lap (in a dream)
--the dream came to pass because she married Muhammad (she got the moon)!

Muhammad's journey:
--he went on a journey with some of his wives
--Zaynab bint Jash (one of his wealthier wives) had 2 horses or camels
--but Safiyya had none
--Zaynab didn't want to loan her horse to Safiyya because she was a Jew
--Muhammad didn't speak to her for 2 months!
--we must respect the Jew or Christian or anyone who takes their Shahadah
--he was offended by Zaynab's statement [when you offend the wife, you offend her husband, too]
--Zaynab was jealous and spiteful

Safiyya and her eeman:
--The Jews didn't want to follow Muhammad from the Arab race
--Safiyya overheard her uncle and grandfather talking about Muhammad REALLY being the prophet
--When she heard that, eeman entered her heart
--The Jews were convinced he was the prophet but they chose the Hellfire rather than believe the truth
--Asabiyya is racism: this is why they chose Hellfire (because of racism)

Verily, the most honourable of you with Allâh is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. he is one of the Muttaqûn. (Al-Hujjarrat 49:13)

The Prophet (SAWS) said, "He is not of us who calls for 'asabiyya and he is not of us who dies for such a cause" Abu Dawud

Asabiyya is a cancer in the body of the ummah but 49:13 removes it
--"to each his own" - so it's not racism if you prefer a girl, let's say, she's Asian [see Nisa ayah 3]

And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan¬girls, then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice. (An-Nisa 4:3)

--it's natural to think about the race of the man/woman you're marrying
--so marry who is pleasing to you
--if you are crazy about a certain anatomy, marry that type of person

Ali and his daughter:
--Ali sent his daughter, Umm Kultham to Ali to consider for marriage
--when she arrived to Umar's house, he looked @ her shin (leg)
--she wanted to slip him across the face because she was young, innocent and shy
--those girls, (ie when they type notes for dars), are shy
--they don't type the word S-X
--Ali looked at her leg not to be disrespectful but he wanted to see her anatomy..
--to see if it pleased him (if they were compatible, physically)
--ie skinny women (anorexic women easily die from heart attacks)
--he wanted to be sure she was pleasing to him and make sure she had not health problems

So it's ok to want to marry from a particular race
--if you go to the house of your Muslim brother and peep on his daughter: you won’t leave there alive!
--many women are attracted to kids who are 'half-caste' [mixed race]
--it is NOT a derogatory word but some prefer to say ‘dual heritage’
--Shaikh was told this because there's only 1 race [human race]
--he was told 'half-caste' is wrong because it promotes one caste
--when we say a blessing/disgrace to his race, we mean the human race

Asabiyya is a cancer in the body of the ummah but 49:13 removes it
--we can exercise 'free-will' when we choose marriage partners
--all this shows that the Jews rejected Muhammad because he was Arab (racists)
--"ear-wigging" (eavesdropping) = this is what Safiyya did
--it’s how she learned Muhammad was the real prophet

The real racist choose Hellfire over Paradise and they do this in the name of racism (asabiyya)

Abu Hanifa, Imam Shafi'i and Ibn Hanbal:
--they say Arabs are the superior heritage
--only Imam Malik differed (he was wrong)
--Why are they superior? because Allah tala revealed the Qur'an in Arabic
--so, if two people you're considering for marriage have the SAME taqwah and 1 is Arab:
--choose the Arab
--it's not racist to want your husband or wife to speak Arabic
--the Saudis aren't racist [they opened their doors to Shaikh Faisal, as well as the South Africans]
--they preferred him to lead salah because he was studying Islam and they were studying dunya topics
--it's ok to want to preserve your Arabic heritage
--Bilal was black and Muhammad (saws) said: he is of my household
--Arabs then are not racist; they just want to preserve their heritage

Arabic speech
--those who don't know Arabic make up their own Islam
--such as in Iran: se what the Shiites teach:

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

"A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, and camels and so on. However he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, however selling the meat to the next door village should be fine."
[Ayatollah Khomeini, Tahrirolvasyleh, 4TH Volume - Darol Elm, Gom, Iran, 1990 from Khomeini's book, "Tahrirolvasyleh"]

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

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 don't know Arabic so they make up their own Islam
--when Shaikh debated the Shias in this room, they were humiliated
--Abu Muslim Al Khorasani took the mic
--Shaikh gave them enough room to hang themselves
--and they did!

Imam Ali is God. (Jila-ul-A'yoon, Vol. 2, p. 66)

**we invite the Saudi Salafis her for a debate**

--w/ 30 minutes notice, the Shia debate was still amazing but the next
--must be announced on Facebook for 1 week
--in the late dars (11pm UK time)
--and when we have the Shiite experts in the room
--we will repeat this debate w/ the Shiites

Saudi Salafis:
--we invite them here for a debate
--we suspect they might be atheists
--they are reckless w/ their tongue
--only an atheist has the aqeeda to dismantle the Shariah would be a minor kufr

So, the Jews don't follow Gentles: they are complete racists
--Christians were also convinced Muhammad (saws) was the prophet
--but to confirm the suspicion, the monk looked behind his neck to see the sign of the prophet (bird)
--then he protected him

Shaikh in the UK
--many women in the UK told Shaikh that they wanted to marry a different race
--they were not racist
--we're told to marry whom is pleasing to us
--different anatomy parts attract different people: this is ok and free will to choose

“There are four matters of jaahiliyyah that exist among my ummah and they will not give them up: boasting about one’s forefathers, casting aspersions upon people’s lineages, seeking rain by the stars and wailing for the dead.” [Sahîh Muslim (934)]

--racism is when you believe in the superiority of one race over the other
--we're not to raise our voice when we are over the dead

A word to the wise is sufficient!
