Bismillah....

THE HOLY QUR'AN IS THE GREATEST MIRACLE OF MUHAMMAD (salah Allahu alayhi wasalam)
-the Qur'an was revealed in the most holiest of months, Ramadan
-revealed by Allah's favorite angel, Jibreel
-to His (swt) favorite prophet, Muhammad (salah Allahu alayhi wasalam)
-in the best language (Arabic) and in the most sacred city, Makkah

THERE ARE 11 CONDITIONS TO BE MET FOR YOU TO BE SINCERE TO THE HOLY QUR'AN
-if 1 condition is missing, you're a fake Muslim
-and you're not sincere to the Holy Qur'an

1. YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT THE QUR'AN IS THE SPEECH OF ALLAH and NOT CREATED

Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an in order that you may understand. (Yusuf 12:2)


-the Qur'an was REVEALED and NOT created
-it was revealed in Arabic because that language has no ambiguities
-it's a language without double-faced words
-(two meanings and we don't know the correct one)

And if anyone of the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) seeks your protection then grant him protection, so that he may hear the Word of Allah (the Qur'an), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not. (At-Tawbah 9:6)

-it was also revealed in Arabic because it's easier to understand
-it's dangerous to believe the Qur'an was created
-because there's no such thing as a perfect creation

Imam Shafi (rahimaullah) said, ”Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir” Masail Abu Dawood Pg 262, sanad is Saheeh

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said, ”Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir; do not say salam to him, neither pray behind him nor sit with him.” Masail ibn Hani Pg 154 Vol.2 Fekrah 1863


-the righteous scholars made takfir on anyone who believed the Qur'an was created

2. WE NEED TO BELIEVE THAT THE QUR'AN IS FREE FROM CORRUPTION and HUMAN INTERFERENCE

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


-Allah (swt) made a promise to protect the Qur'an

...for You never break (Your) Promise." (Aali Imran 3:194)
-we're not to have the aqeeda of the Shiites who say
-He (swt) broke His (swt) promise to us
-The Shiites aqeeda says:

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

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


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

-there's nothing bautil in the beginning or end of the Qur'an [41:42]

3. WE NEED TO CONTEMPLATE ON THE MEANING OF THE QUR'AN

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

4. WE MUST BELIEVE THAT QUR'AN DOES NOT CONTRADICT QUR'AN

-an ayah doesn't contradict any other ayahs
-a Surah doesn't contradict any other Surahs
-if you have doubts, discussing it w/ a shaikh and do not keep it to yourself
-one of the 7 conditions of Shahadah is yaqeen [certainty]

In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allah has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies. (Al-Baqarah 2:10)

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein many contradictions. (An-Nisa 4:82)


-when the Qur'an says Muhammad (saws) is the last prophet, we're not to doubt it
-when you doubt an aspect of the Qur'an, you're not inside the fold of Islam
-if it came from other than Allah, we would have found many discrepancies

5. WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT THE QUR'AN ON THE INDIVIDUAL LEVEL

The life of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) has been said by his wife, Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) to be like "a walking Qur’an", embodying the Laws of Almighty Allah (subhaana wa taalah).

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

He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism), and teaching them the Book (this Qur'an, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad SAW). And verily, they had been before in mainfest error; (Al-Jumu'ah 62:2)


-we're to do what the Qur'an says, as an individual Muslim

"Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a bald-headed poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.' Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Number 486

-we should become a 'walking Qur'an' to be sincere to the Qur'an
-there's no sense in only reciting it beautifully

...And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid], and spend it not in the Way of Allah, -announce unto them a painful torment. (At-Tawbah 9:34)

-we need to conquer our greed and pay our zakah
-such as drinking, if we drink alcohol, we have no salah for 40 days / 40 nights

The holy Prophet has stated the foremost purpose of his being sent down in this world and the method of his call to the people in these words: "I have been sent only for the purpose of perfecting good morals." (Al-Muta)

Good character is a great virtue (KS67, KS69). The best gift that a parent can give a child is good character (KS67).


-a munafiqh will never have 2 things: knowledge of the deen and a good character
-they have no knowledge because it's not his interest
-he can't be bothered to learn the deen
-they fall asleep during a 30 minute khutbah
-but they stay awake during Hollywood and bollywood movies
-they only go to masjid to 'save face' -- their heart is not IN it
-it's like women saying, "I love you but I'm not IN love w/ you"

Character is what determines what type of individual you are (Muslim 4:1362 Hadith # 6221).

Narrated Abu Darda: The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “There is nothing heavier upon the scale of a believer (on the Day of Judgment) than good character.” [Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 4781]


-we're to marry someone with a good character

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

-Muhammad was at the peak of a noble character
-one day, he noticed the woman who dumped garbage outside his door did not come
-he was told she was sick and so he went and made dua for her and she took Shahadah
-the kaafirs of Makkah killed his Companions ..
-such as Sumaya, and her husband, Yasiq,
-the kaafirs starved them for 3 years
-they killed Sahabahs at Battle of Uhud and Battle of Badr
-he sent a slave free who came back the next year to kill Sahabahs
-he was expected to be harsh to the Makkkans but he said: GO YOU ARE FREE
-the whole of Makkah took Shahadah in 1 day
-Arabs are very merciful
-the wives of Jamaicans who smoke ganja and their wives do not leave them
-in university, Shaikh Faisal made mistakes and the Arabs always forgave him
-the Jewish media makes us think Arabs are cruel and blood-thirsty but it's NOT true
-live among Arabs and see for yourself
-Muhammad, the walking Qur'an, did not take revenge

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)

6. WE MUST BELIEVE IN ALL OF IT AND IMPLEMENT ALL OF THE QUR'AN

..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. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. (Al-Baqarah 2:85)

MADkhalis:

-they come into Islam and say they want 3 wives so they have them [4:3]

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 (the captives and the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice. (An-Nisa 4:3)

-well, look at the ayah, it says to marry 2 ... so they marry 2 and not 1 ..
-they say to give me your zakah [because he now has several wives]
-but if you ask them about jihad in the Muslim world,
-they say they don't believe in it w/o a caliph
-so they believe in polygamy and zakah but not jihad

ABU QATADA and SHAIKH FAISAL
-Abu Qatada said Shaikh was too strict w/ the Saudi Salafis
-but they say not to give salaam to the mujahideen
-and that they're brothers of the shaitan
-when Abu Qatada heard this ....
-he was shocked ... and so we must be careful not to believe
-in just 1 ayah and not all of the ayahs
-these people are living OFF the deen not BY the deen
-they ask, "what can Islam do for me?'

The MADkhalis claim there's no jihad w/o a caliph
-bin Baz said jihad was fard ulayn to go to Afghanistan to defeat the Soviet Union
-yet they worship bin Baz, Albani and Uthaymeen
-Afghanistan is a Muslim country
-and men in their 50s went to fight!
-abandoning the wives and kids and they were listening to the call of bin Baz
-the Soviet Union was destroyed and so many countries were liberated
-it's now in the dustpan of history
-and over 400,000 million were liberated
-by the blood of the mujahideen in Afghanistan
-so, we say to the Saudi Salafis, "we didn't have a caliph in 1980..
-so who says we need a caliph for jihad?"

THERE'S 2 TYPES OF MUSLIMS
1. Living OFF the deen
2. Living BY the deen

Munafiqhs never say WHAT CAN I DO FOR ISLAM
only WHAT CAN ISLAM DO FOR ME?
-they will believe in polygamy and zakah but not jihad
-they believe one ayah and not others

Abû Ruqayyah Tamîm b. `Aws al-Dârî relates that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Religion is Sincerity.” We asked: “To whom, O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and the leaders of the Muslims and to the common Muslim.” [Sahîh Muslim]

DEOBANDIS brag and boast that they produce a lot of Hafez

-but they don't believe Allah is on the Arsh
-none of them believe in 20:5

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)

The Prophet then asked her, "Where is Allah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allah’s Messenger", so the Prophet said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer." (Saheeh Muslim, Vol 1, Hadith #1094)


-this hadith will checkmate the Deobandis and Tablighi Jamm'ah
-some of us come here and listen and get hujjah (evidence)
-but when we come face to face w/ deviants, we forget the hujjah

Narrated By Anas: Zaid bin Haritha came to the Prophet complaining about his wife. The Prophet kept on saying (to him), "Be afraid of Allah and keep your wife." 'Aisha said, "If Allah's Apostle were to conceal anything (of the Qur'an he would have concealed this Verse." Zainab used to boast before the wives of the Prophet and used to say, "You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens." And Thabit recited, "The Verse: 'But (O Muhammad) you did hide in your heart that which Allah was about to make manifest, you did fear the people,' (33.37) was revealed in connection with Zainab and Zaid bin Haritha." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith 516]

-our minds go blank so remember these hadeeth to checkmate the deviants
-how can they refute Zainab bint Jaysh (she was the mother of the believers)
-can't these jahil see they are teaching Hanafi fiqh but not tawheed
-they are similar to Christians who know nothing about their religion
-we claim to memorize the Qur'an, but we don't know what it says
-let's see them go against 67:16 and these hadeeth

Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, then behold it shakes (as in an earthquake)? (Al-Mulk 67:16)

The Qu’ran will either be evidence in your favour or evidence against you- commentary- if a person acts upon the commandments in the Qu’ran by following its guidance, it will benefit him. If he does not follow its guidance then it will be against him.’ (recorded in Muslim)


-where do they get the aqeeda that Allah (tala) is everywhere?
-the same as the Christians where the Bible says there's 1 God but they believe in 3
-these Saudi Salafis call the Mujahideen Khawarijj but they are who is Khawarijj
-they need to look in the mirror to see the real dogs of jahanaam
-our walaa needs to be to the mujahideen not as they do, for their paycheck
-they write books about the Ulema of the Haqq

Nay, you prefer the life of this world; (Al-A'la 87:16)

Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting. (Al-A'la 87:17)

7. WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT THE QUR'AN ON THE STATE LEVEL

-don't come w/ arguments that RELIGION IS AN INDIVIDUAL THING
-don't marginalize it ... what about implementing Shariah?
-they want to say to dismantle the Shariah is a minor kufr
-when we go against the ijmaah of the Muslims, we are fuel for the hellfire
-so the ummah says that Allah is on the Arsh [to ask about it is bid'ah]

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination. (An-Nisa 4:115)

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.

TAHAAKUM ...

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. (Adwa' al-Bayan, 7:162)


-we're not to take our Shariah in the ministry of education
-secularist separates faith from state
-some are worse and say "practice your religion on an individual level"
-others separate it from their own selves
-both secularists are apostates
-don't be content or satisfied that Shariah is implemented
-on an individual level; do it on the state level

Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His messenger (SAW). Whoever does this is a Kaafir who must be FOUGHT*** until he returns to the rule of Allah and His messenger. So no one other than He should rule neither minorly or majorly" Tafseer Ibn Kathir, Vol 2, p.67

The MADkhalis and Saudi Salafis
say they follow Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn Kathir
-al Yaasiq is the [bible] of the Tartars
-it's a cocktail of different religions

So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammed ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to Al-Yasa (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Sharia of Muhammed (saw)). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims. Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah Vol 13, P119

8. WE NEED TO PRONOUNCE IT PROPERLY WHEN WE RECITE IT

-it's haraam to pray behind someone who can't recite Surah Fatiha properly

Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam said “there is no salaath without fatihatil kitab” [Surah Fatiha] Hazrat Jaabir (r.a.) narrates that the one who does not recite sura fatiha even in one rakat, his salah is not valid. [This Hadith has been classified as Hasan — Tirmizi]

Surah Fatiha must be recited in Arabic; we're not recite it in our own language

9. WE NEED TO LEARN THE PROPER TAFSEER OF THE QUR'AN FROM A PROPER TRANSLATION BY A RIGHTEOUS PERSON


-do we go to the chatrooms of the Shiites to learn their translations?
-they invite the youth to the gates of the Hellfire

And when you (Muhammad SAW) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qur'an) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shaitan (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers, etc.). (Al-An'am 6:68)

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah 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. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)


-if you go to these chatrooms, you are not having harmless fun
-you're a kaafir
-when we hear the verses of Allah tala being ridiculed,
-we're not to sit w/ these people
-if we stay w/ them, we will be like them
-in this room, we are a classroom and not a chatroom
-we do not advertise other chatrooms here
-because we don't want to be judged for it on Judgment Day
-the Shiites and Saudi Salafis - all have their own 'chat' rooms
-but we are a 'class' room
-the shaitan instills in us corrupted and perverted desires [see 4:119]

Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah." And whoever takes Shaitan (Satan) as a Wali (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss. (An-Nisa 4:119)

-he guarantees to lead us astray, so why follow him?
-he says he will make us become superstitious
-if we have no shaikh, the shaitan will become our shaikh

"Whoever cancels one's intention to do something because of attiyarah (an evil omen), that one has committed shirk" (Imam Ahmad)

FGM
= female genital mutilation [this is haraam]
-so the shaitan vows to change our bodies
-he changes Allah's creation
-Shaikh counsels many sisters from Africa who've had FGM
-many men do not want to marry women who had FGM
-it can be reversed
-FGM is child abuse; the sisters will have flash-backs [memories of it]

10. WE MUST BELIEVE THE QUR'AN ABROGATES THE PREVIOUS BOOKS
-and the Shariah of the Qur'an abrogates the Shariah of other books

FALSEHOOD OF MUNAFIQH: A MUSLIM GIRL CAN MARRY A KAAFIR MAN
-because the Pharaoh's wife was a Muslim and he was a kaafir
-in the Shariah of Muhammad (saws), we're not to bow down
-to anyone but Allah subhan'wa'tala

If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah. [Hadith: Sunan Abu Dawud, 11:2135]

2 TYPES OF SAJDAH: THE SAJDAH OF RESPECT AND THE SAJDAH OF WORSHIP (IBAADAH)

And those of your women who commit illegal sexual intercourse, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them (i.e. women) to houses until death comes to them or Allah ordains for them some (other) way. (An-Nisa 4:15)


...which ayah abrogates 4:15? See 24:2

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes....(An-Nur 24:2)

THE SCHOLARS OF TAFSEER mention why they mention the fornication of women first:

1. the libido of a woman is stronger than a man
-this is false because testosterone is stronger then a woman's estrogen
-it's stronger and more plentiful

2. it's more shameful for a girl to commit zina (illegal s-x) than a boy
-boys are called 'studs' for having 10 girlfriends but if girls do it, they are called horrible names

3. it's more damaging for a woman
-diseases, such as AIDS
-she loses her virginity
-her reputation is tarnished
-if a man is circumcised, he is less likely to get AIDS from a woman who has it
-but women easily catch it from a man

`Umar -- Allah be well-pleased with him -- came to the Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- and said: "We hear from the Jews narrations that impress us, do you think we should write down some of them?" The Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- replied: "Are you all going to fall into the same chaos (amutahawwikun) in which fell the Jews and Christians? I brought it [the Religion] to you pristine and pure. If Musa were alive, he would have no alternative but to follow me!" Narrated from Jabir by al-Bayhaqi in Shu`ab al-Iman (1:200) and mursal from al-Hasan by al-Khatib in al-Jami` li Akhlaq al-Rawi (1991 ed. 2:228 #1531=1983 ed. 2:161) with weak chains.

11. WE MUST READ THE ENTIRE QUR'AN AT LEAST ONCE IN OUR LIFETIME

-when we read it, we should contemplate its meaning
-we can read it in one month if we read 4.5 pages after each salah
-[or 22 pages per day]
-there's more barakah reading it in Arabic
-and when we say ALIF LAAM MEEM (we get 30 barakah)

12. WHEN THE QUR'AN IS RECITED, WE MUST BE QUIET AND LISTEN

So, when the Qur'an is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy. [i.e. during the compulsory congregational prayers when the Imam (of a mosque) is leading the prayer (except Surat Al-Fatiha), and also when he is delivering the Friday-prayer Khutbah]. [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol.9, Pages 162-4] (Al-A'raf 7:204)


-so when the Qur'an is played in the room,
-you'll notice the Admins have the room dotted
-a recent fatawa is that we're not to have Qur'an as our ring-tone (for mobile phone)
-the athaan can be used to wake us up for Fajr
