Those (who embraced Islâm from Banî Israel) to whom We gave the Book [the Taurât (Torah)] [or those (Muhammad's Peace be upon him companions) to whom We have given the Book (the Qur'ân)]

Recite it (i.e. obey its orders and follow its teachings) as it should be recited (i.e. followed), they are the ones that believe therein. And whoso disbelieves in it (the Qur'ân), those are they who are the losers. (Tafsir Al-Qurtubî.) (Al-Baqarah 2:121)

THOSE WHO DISBELIEVE IN AL QUR'AN are losers

-- the successful ones recite the Qur'an as is meant to
-- There are various ways to recite the Qu’ran
-- But Allaah has recommended you to recite in Tarteel

Or a little more; And recite the Qur'ân (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style (Al-Muzzammil 73:4)

-- Slow pace is "Mujawwad"
-- Tarteel is a medium pace
-- The Holy Qu’ran was revealed to be followed
-- and you cannot follow it the way YOU want to follow it

Aboo Umaamah relates that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Read the Qur’an, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.” [Muslim]

-- Rasoolullaah (S.A.W) was the walking Qu’ran
-- If a person is not offended by a certain nickname
-- then you are allowed to call him by that name

THE QUR'AN IS A HUJJAH EITHER FOR YOU OR AGAINST YOU
-- In order for you to be sincere to the Qu’ran you have to recite it properly
-- Also you need to believe that the Qu’ran is the Kalaam of Allaah and not created

HOW TO BE SINCERE TO THE QUR'AAN

1. YOU NEED TO BELIEVE THAT THE QU’RAN
IS THE SPEECH OF ALLAAH AND NOT CREATED
-we don't mix eeman w/ kufr
-or our deen w/ kufr
-or our practices w/ bid'ah
-Don’t mix Sunnah with Bid'ah

.....We have given the Book (the Qur'ân)] recite it (i.e. obey its orders and follow its teachings) as it should be recited (i.e. followed), [Al-Baqara 2:121]

2. NEED TO CONTEMPLATE ON ITS MEANING

-- Because Allaah said in Surah Muhammad 47:24

Do they not then think deeply in the Qur'ân, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)? (Muhammad 47:24)

--eeman and sincerity can't enter a heart that is sealed
-- The people of Taqwa all love Tafseer

3. YOU NEED TO KEEP QUIET WHEN IT’S BEING RECITED
-- Because you were commanded by Allaah in Surah 7:204

So, when the Qur'ân is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy.... (Al-Araf 7:204)

-- Its Haraam to speak when the Qu’ran is being recited
-- it's haraam to be used as a ring tone for our mobile phones
-- we're not allowed to do things while Qur'an is on CD
-- A housewife is allowed to listen to Qu’ran while she is cooking

4. WE NEED TO RECITE IT PROPERLY
-some Imams can't recite Surah Fatiha properly
-you are not allowed to pray behind an Imaam that cant recite Surah Fatiha properly
-we can't pray behind that Imam

Whose hearts are filled with fear when Allâh is mentioned;... (Al-Hajj 22:35)

-- Because there is no Salah without Surah Faati7ah
-- Surah Faati7a has to be recited in ARABIC ONLY
-- Why cant you speak Arabic and leave all those other languages
-- All those people speaking other languages
-- and refuse to learn Arabic are racist and clannish
-- Arabic is superior to all other languages

5. GIVE QUR'AN THE PROPER TAFSEER [explanation]
-- You need to shun the tafseer of the deviants and apostates
-- shun the tafseer of secularists, modernists, fatalists
-- Jabriyya - fatalists
-- stay away from the tafseer of the Shia’s
-- If you are not a scholar then go to the sincere scholars
-- to get the correct tafseer
-- Do not learn tafseer from the shady SHIAS
-- If you are so careful about what you eat coz you wanna live long
-- why are you not careful about what you put in your brain?
-- It is Haraam to go to the chatrooms
-- where they preach Kufr and make a mockery of Qu’ran and Sunnah

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'ân) that when you hear the Verses of Allâh being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them.... (An-Nisa 4:140)

-- when we go to chatrooms of the deviants,
-- we will start thinking & believing like them

DEMOCRACY gave us Bush, Blair, Hitler, Ariel Sharon
-- evilest men to walk the earth
-- Ariel Sharon was Prime Minister of Israel
-- there is no good in democracy
-- if you believe in democracy, you're outside the fold of Islam
-- those who believe in democracy have become Kuffaar
-- we believe in a theocracy
-- “Democracy” = the demons have gone crazy
-- The infidels claim that we are fanatic and extremists,
-- but they are the extremists because they are extremely evil

The Jews lie against Allaah

..."Truly, Allâh is poor and we are rich!".... (Al-E-Imran 3:181)

-- for you to be concerned about your physical health and not your spiritual health is Hypocrisy!

.... And if Shaitân (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers). (Al-Anaam 6:68)


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

-- when you read the tafseer of the SHIAS
-- regarding the slaughtering of the cow in 2:67,
-- the SHIAS say that is referring to Aa'ishah (r.a)

Verily, We give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before (them), and their traces[1] and all things We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book. (Ya-Seen 36:12)

-- the SHIAS say the word "clear book" means the Shia Imaam

6. YOU NEED TO IMPLEMENT QUR'AN ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL
-- we need Islamic character .. we can be beautiful w/ a poor character

He (Prophet Muhammad) said: “Verily Allah does not look to your bodies nor to your faces but He looks to your hearts.” (Sahih Muslim: Book 32, Number 6220)

-- the heaviest thing on the scale on judgment day will be your good character

Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said, "The heaviest thing to be placed in the balance of a believing slave on the Day of Judgment will be good behaviour." (At-Tirmidhi).

-- the reason why divorce is so prevalent amongst the Muslims is because of evil character

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatîn (devils),.. (Al-Isra 17:27)

Good character is a great virtue (KS67, KS69). The best gift that a parent can give a child is good character (KS67). "No father can give his children a better gift than good manners." [Tirmidhi)

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


-- there is no such a thing as a "Non practicing Muslim"

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

7. IMPLEMENT THE QUR'AN ON THE STATE LEVEL, TOO

-- Don't only be satisfied with it on the individual level
-- if you think that it should be only on the individual level,
-- then you are trying to marginalize the Qu’ran to the four corners of the masjid
-- you have to implement it on state level

... Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are disbelievers. (Al-Maeda 5:44)

those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allâh and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Tâghût[] (false deities) [Al-Maeda 5:60]


-- the Saudi Salafis are ready to protect the taghoot

Nay, you prefer the life of this world, (16) Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting. (17) [Al-Ala 87:16-17]

Ibn Taymiyyah said: And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Sharia other than the Sharia of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it. Majmua Al-Fataawa: Vol 28, p. 524


KHAMR = INTOXICANTS
-- sometime you hear khutbah how these are haraam
-- but you hear the hadeeth and you khutbah
-- but if he didn't tell you the solution is to topple the government
-- to get rid of the khamr

8. YOU NEED TO IMPLEMENT ALL OF THE QUR'AN, NOT SOME OF IT
-- You need to believe in all of it
-- It’s not a plate of food where you take what you want and dump the rest

Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment.....(Al-Baqara 2:85)

SHAIKH IN THE UK

-- he met people who joined the SAUDI SALAFI movement
-- they were practicing polygamy since it's permitted

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),... [An-Nisa 4:3]

-- but these same people do NOT believe in jihad
-- they don't live BY the deen but OFF it
-- they say WHAT CAN ISLAM DO FOR ME ???
-- these people pick and choose what they want to believe
-- the falsely say we need a caliph for jihad
-- they say there is no jihaad because you need a caliph / khaleef

The Messenger of Allah (saw) also said, "The believers, in their love, mutual kindness, and close ties, are like one body; when any part complains, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever." [Muslim]

BIN BAAZ'S fatawa
-- he said jihad was fard ul ayn [required for all]
-- 1980 there was no caliph [when he passed the fatawa]
-- so how can the Saudi Salafis say we need a caliph for jihad?
-- we do not !!

IBN TAYMIYYAH and the TARTARS
-- 700 years after the hijrah
-- when in Taymiyyah was alive the tartars came in and killed the khaleef Musta’sim
-- for 3 years the Muslims had no khaleef / caliph
-- the Tartars had destroyed a lot of books of knowledge
-- when the Muslims in Syria heard what took place in Baghdad
-- they said we should surrender, ibn Taymiyyah said we will never surrender!
-- and the Syrians fought alongside ibn Taymiyyah and reinstated the khaleef

9. YOU MUST BELIEVE IT IS UNCORRUPTABLE
-- it cannot be corrupted because Allaah doesn’t break his promises

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'ân) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption)[] (Al-Hijr 15:9)

Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allâh swt). (Fussilat 41:42)

Shiites hujjah:

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

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

All the Imams are infallible just like the prophets. The Shia derives their religion from their immaculate (infallible) Imams" (Usool al Kafi, p. 22)


10. YOU MUST BELIEVE IT'S THE LAST REVELATION
-- and IT WIPES OUT PREVIOUS REVELATIONS
-- eg today, from the SUNNAH OF MUHAMMAD, no Muslimah can marry a kaafir
-- but the Shariah of Musa said they could ...
-- so we must abrogate what was abrogated

SHAIKH IN AFRICA
-- the Nigerian women did not want to accept they are married to a kaafir
-- but SHAIKH went to Islam NOT to water down Islam
-- you can marry real Muslims and can NOT send them back to their kaafir husbands
-- the SHAIKH WHOMEVER MARRIED THOSE WOMEN ARE KAAFIR FOR DOING IT

O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allâh knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers,

They are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them.... (Al-Mumtahina 60:10)

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. (Al-Ahzab 33:70)


and die not except in a state of Islâm [as Muslims (with complete submission to Allâh)]. (Al-E-Imran 3:102)

11. FINISH READING THE QUR'AN ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME

12. TO TEACH IT TO OTHERS !!
!

Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The best of you are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it. (Bukhari)
