Bismillah....

That was a nation who has passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do. (Al-Baqarah 2:134)

This is the ayah that Hasan al Basri used to checkmate

-if you have the ability to use Qur'anic verses to checkmate people
-the Qur'an is the ultimate hujjah

THE DEBATE BETWEEN IMAN SHAFI'I and IBN HANBAL
-would we be able to quote the ayah they used in their debate re: the salah
-one said we're a kaafir if we don't pray 5x a day
-one said Shahadah was enough

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. (At-Tawbah 9:11)

Ibn Hanbal said we're to pray 5x a day

-See Taubah :40 if you want to checkmate someone
-who says Abu Bakr Siddique wasn’t a Sahabah

if you help him (Muhammad SAW) not (it does not matter), for Allah did indeed help him when the disbelievers drove him out, the second of two, when they (Muhammad SAW and Abu Bakr) were in the cave, and he (SAW) said to his companion (Abu Bakr): "Be not sad (or afraid), surely Allah is with us."
(9:40)


-some people are Parvazi [they believe in Qur'an but not hadith]
-if someone says your eeman is static [doesn't go up nor down]; use 3:173

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)." (Aali Imran 3:173)

There is an ayah in the Qur'an for every single deviant out there in the world

-why did we pay attention to this ayah?

So if they believe in the like of that which you believe, then they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then they are only in opposition. So Allah will suffice you against them. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:137)

Uthmaan was stabbed to death while reading

-he was killed because they said he had nepotism
-[loving his family and treating him better than the ummah]
-his wife's fingers [some of them] were cut off trying to defend him
-during this attack, some of his blood was spilled on an ayah of the Qur'an
-the rebels who jumped through his window, one by one, were all killed by the sword
-one ran to Egypt to hide but he was killed there and inside a donkey,
-they stuff his body inside the stomach of a donkey and burned them

Some of us have loved ones who were killed
-it's a very painful experience to lose loved ones under gruesome circumstances
-when someone kills someone you love,
-the murderer takes all their sins on Judgment Day
-always remember 2:137

So if they believe in the like of that which you believe, then they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then they are only in opposition. So Allah will suffice you against them. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:137)

Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him to the Jews and Christians), "Dispute you with us about Allah while He is our Lord and your Lord? And we are to be rewarded for our deeds and you for your deeds. And we are sincere to Him in worship and obedience (i.e. we worship Him Alone and none else, and we obey His Orders)." (Al-Baqarah 2:139)

We single out Allah 'tala for our ibaadah [worship]

-how can they be Jews or Christians?

Or say you that Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma'il (Ishmael), Ishaque (Isaac), Ya'qûb (Jacob) and Al-Asbat [the twelve sons of Ya'qûb (Jacob)] were Jews or Christians? Say, "Do you know better or does Allah (knows better… that they all were Muslims)?(2:140)

-the foundation of their religion is based upon shirk
-see Taubah :31
-Ibrahim worshipped one God but these other religions
-make priests and rabbis beside Allah
-they make haraam, halal and halal, haraam ..

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), (9:31)

-so they changed their religion and Jews spew venom at Allah
-they say he is a pauper

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said and their killing of the Prophets unjustly, and We shall say: "Taste you the torment of the burning (Fire)." (Aali Imran 3:181)

'Adi commented, "I said, ‘They did not worship them.’" The Prophet said, ((Yes they did. They (rabbis and monks) prohibited the allowed for them (Christians and Jews) and allowed the prohibited, and they obeyed them. This is how they worshiped them.)) … They took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah… that the Christians and Jews obeyed their monks and rabbis in whatever they allowed or prohibited for them…" (Tafsir Ibn Kathir (Eng Abridged),First Edition: May 2000], Volume 4, pp. 409-410) Imam Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Jarir At-Tabari recorded a Hadith via several chains of narration


Their book, the Talmud
-go read the tafseer in 9:31; it's in English now,
-so we should read it for ourselves
-worship is not only when the kaafir bows down to a Buddha

SHIRK:
-palm reading
-horoscopes
-black magic
-to describe Allah w/ manly qualities is shirk
-to describe a man w/ godly qualities, is also shirk
-it's shirk to call a name other than Allah
-when we slaughter an animal, this is shirk
-to go to the kaafir courthouse and believe in their Shariah

SHAIKH IN THE UK
-many went to the kaafir courthouse and believed in their Shariah

So, can the kaafirs claim Ibrahim
-was a Jew or Christian when the foundations
-of those religions were founded on shirk
-example: Christians are not circumcised
-most of the men are not and these men are 70% more likely to contract AIDS
-in some African countries, half the population has AIDS
-these men are uncircumcised
-Ibrahim was circumcised; he did it himself when he was 80 years old

Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, says: "Abraham circumcised himself at the age of eighty, using a hatchet"(related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Christians,
in 325AD, gathered in the COUNCIL OF NICEA [in Turkey]
-they decided to make Christianity more marketable
-so they created the trinity [father, son and holy ghost]
-but Jesus never said this; it was decided @ the council meeting

SHAIKH IN SOUTH AFRICA
-Dr. Hakim Quick took Shaikh Faisal on a tour
-a shaikh there, Ian Dallas, told the women that hijah was not fard
-the women there were wearing modern clothes like having a fashion show
-Ian Dallas is a 'free mason'
-surely men go there just to look at the women w/o hijab
-even though the sisters from age puberty up should be covering

THE JEWS pray w/ their hands by their side
-though we're to have our right hand over the left hand on our chest

Wa'il b. Hajr said "I prayed with Prophet Muhammad(saw) and he put his right hand over his left hand over his chest."(Ibn Khuzaimah, Abu Dawud, Muslim)

Narrated Ibn Mas'ud Allah's Apostle taught me the Tashah-hud as he taught me a Sura from the Quran, while my hand was between his hands. (Tashah-hud was) all the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be on you, O Prophet! Peace be on us and on the pious slaves of Allah, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I also testify that Muhammad is Allah's slave and His Apostle. (We used to recite this in the prayer) during the lifetime of the Prophet, but when he had died, we used to say, "Peace be on the Prophet." Bukhari -Volume 8, Book 74, Number 281


THE PROPHET'S PRAYER
-many were reciting "as'salaam alayka" instead of as-salam alan nabee"
-you pray into the hands of the Barelvis when you pray like this

MASJID IN LEYTON, LONDON (UK)
THE SAUDI SALAFIS [such as at the Masjid in Leyton, London, UK]
-wag their finger when they make salah

WAGGING YOUR FINGER IN SALAH
-this is nonsense and far-fetchedness
-point your finger towards the Qibla and your finger points throughout the tahajjud
-we do not move or wag it
-the Saudis say the original position after rakuh is on the chest
-we're to recite as-salam alan nabee and remove the 'ka'
-the Goofi Soofis and grave-worshippers refuse the follow the hadith in Bukhari
-when we described the Prophet's prayer to you,
-we dug up tons of hujjah from learned scholars

Imam Nawawi mentions in the Majmu‘ (3.454) from Abu Dawud and others with a sound chain of narrators on the authority Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr, that he described the prayer of the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) by saying, “He would point with his finger while supplicating without moving it.” As for what is present in the narration that mentions, that he (Allah bless him and grant him peace) “used to move it”, the expression, “move it is an unreliable anomalous (Ar. shadhdh) narration because the narrator who relates [m this Hadith] on the authority of the Companion Wael Ibn Hujr (Allah be pleased with him) contradicts everyone else who narrated from him

-Shaikh taught us how Imam Nawawi taught us

Wa'il b. Hajr said "I prayed with Prophet Muhammad(saw) and he put his right hand over his left hand over his chest."(Ibn Khuzaimah, Abu Dawud, Muslim)

-that we do not move our finger
-this is from a sound chain of narrators
-Shaikh brings hujjah for everything he teaches here
-"without moving it" (the finger) - quote this when you are checkmating
-pay attention to our religion
-we take Sahih Muslim to put our hands on our chest;
-Hanafis put hands under their navel
-going down sajdah on hands or knees first [either is fine]
-when it comes to du'a, we can make it anytime we want to
-but not in a toilet (of course not)
-Shaikh asked Naasir al Aql (a top Shaikh in Saudi Arabia, who only has 1 eye)
-he told Shaikh Faisal it's not a bid'ah to make du'a when you want to BUT
-if you say du'a AFTER EVERY SINGLE SALAH, then it becomes a bid'ah
-because then you give the impression that du'a is a part of the salah
-the salaam we give to the right is fard; to the left, is a Sunnah
-some [like the Malakis] only give salaam to the right and this is fine
-if you give salaam to the right and then
-we do something that would normally break salah
-we do not need to repeat the salah; it was finished after turning to the right
-shaikh was asked to make a du'a after every salah
-and he said he didn't learn Islam like that;
-he can do it sometimes but not to give the impression
-that the du'a was a part of the salah
-watch satellite TV .. from Makkah/Madina,
-do the imams make du'a after every salah? no!

PEOPLE LIKE TO INTRODUCE PRACTICES INTO THE DEEN
-the Pharaoh started FGM [female genital mutilation]
-many people in Africa still think this is a Sunnah
-but the Prophet had 4 daughters and
-didn't circumcise any of them [circumcise - FGM]

The Authority Of Aishah: The messenger of Allah said : "He who innovates something in this matter of ours that is not of it will have it rejected." [Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim]

-Allah gave the female a gift, so if we're cutting it out,
-we're saying we know more than Allah

”None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”. (Al-Bukhari)

-the shaitan wants to change the nature of the human body

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)

-sisters ask Shaikh if they must hide their FGM from the future husbands
-the answer is, if he asks, be honest; otherwise, we don't mention it to the brothers
-a black American would not marry a woman who was a VICTIM of FGM
-FGM can be reversed by surgery
-a gynecologist can do it

A SUDANESE SHAIKH was teaching in Saudi
-when he went back to the Sudan, his father said
-your daughter is 9 years old and is not circumcised
-the shaikh said I prefer to renounce my citizen of
-Sudan than to mutilate my daughter
-men have always been obsessed w/ women's private parts
-so they put on a belt to the sister so all she can do is [make nature/go to toilet]
-and the belt prevents them from having s-x / zina

HOW IS THE TOPIC OF "FGM" RELEVANT TO OUR TAFSEER?
-it's relevant because, in life, people like to say,
-"I follow __________ prophet"
-but those who do FGM say they follow Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
-and so this is tahaara
-but the Prophet did not do FGM to ANY of his 4 daughters
-but FGM is considered 'child abuse'
-FGM should be optional
-so when a woman reaches womanhood and wants to do it, she can
-but to pin her down at age 9 and force it, it's child abuse
-those Shaikh counsels w/ here on PT all regret the experience
-they have emotional flashbacks [remembering the exact experience]

THIS IS HOW FGM IS RELEVANT TO THE TAFSEER OF SURAH BAQARAH

Narrated By 'Ali: The Prophet said, "Do not tell a LIE AGAINST me for whoever tells a LIE AGAINST me then he will surely enter the Hell-fire." Bukhari Vol 1, Book 3 No. 106


-because people lie and say something is a sunnah when it's actually a bid’ah
-do not lie on the Rasool (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
-to mutilate the sisters is NOT a sunnah

That was a nation who has passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned, and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do. (Al-Baqarah 2:141)

That was a nation who has passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do. (Al-Baqarah 2:134)

NOTICE that 2:141 is the same as 2:134

-so why did Allah repeat this ayah?
-because of it's importance
-because as a Muslim, we need to get our priorities right
-why do we want to spend our time talking
-about the fitnah between Ali and Mu’awiyah
-or other matters we will not be asked about
-such as the Shiites who think there are 6 pillars of Islam
-or how they wipe over the naked skins [but we're told to save our heels]

..."Perform ablution perfectly and thoroughly for Abul-Qasim (the Prophet) said, 'Save your heels from the Hell-fire.' " [Sahih Bukhari - Volume 1, Book 4, Hadith 166]

Heera mande:
the diamond market, where women marry men for 1 hour
-Shiites, look at your fiqh; it's messed up and so is your aqeeda
-you say Allah is a liar and makes mistakes
-your manhaj is also messed up

THE SHIITES ARE NOT GETTING ANYTHING RIGHT:
-creed, fiqh and manhaj

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

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


We're not to implement Shariah in darul harb [such as UK and US]
-but some ummah in London say some parts of London are Shariah zones
-the 4 great imams said we're not to do this; this is improper manhaj
-we're not on sirat al mustaqeem unless we get our manhaj correct
-can we cut off the hand of a thief in London who stole something from a car?
-no
-and if we did make judgment against the person but they can go to the OLD BAILEY
-and have your judgment over-ruled
-the man-made court can veto Shariah
-so this manhaj sounds like a comic book

"Indeed you are going to the people of the book so let the first thing that you invite them to be the tawheed of Allah" (Bukhari 1/13)

WHEN WE SEE THOSE
dabbling in gambling and alcohol and zina in darul harb
-then we're to tell them La illah illa Allah,
-led them to Islam and then tell them their 5 pillars
-but we're not to tell them these things when they
-do not know the basics: La illah illa Allah
-dawah should begin w/ tawheed not Shariah
-we can't cut off the hand of a thief in London
-the infidels would make it front page news
-they will use it against us and say
-PANIC GRIPS THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY: MAN'S HAND CHOPPED OFF FOR THIEVERY
-we're NOT to implement the Islamic capital punishment [hudood] in darul harb

IF YOU FOLLOW THE COVENANT OF SECURITY
-know there is NO covenant of security anymore
-as these covenants were broken 3x

Narrated By Ibn Umar: Bani An-Nadir and Bani Quraiza fought (against the Prophet violating their peace treaty), so the Prophet exiled Bani An-Nadir and allowed Bani Quraiza to remain at their places (in Medina) taking nothing from them till they fought against the Prophet again). He then killed their men and distributed their women, children and property among the Muslims, but some of them came to the Prophet and he granted them safety, and they embraced Islam. He exiled all the Jews from Medina. They were the Jews of Bani Qainuqa', the tribe of 'Abdullah bin Salam and the Jews of Bani Haritha and all the other Jews of Medina. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59, Hadith #362]

-Banu Qaynuqa, Banu Nadheer, Banu Quraiza
-this is an aqeeda issue, not fiqh
-it has to do w/ al walaa wal baraa
-to dismantle the Shariah being a minor kufr is an AQEEDA issue
-to preach the covenant of security, we're disgracing the mujahideen
-the do nothing else for Islam other than 'march'
-the scream slogans in the street: DOWN DOWN USA and they go home
-drink coffee and say, "I did something for Islam"

EVERYBODY CAN BE A DEVIL BECAUSE IT'S NOT A RACE ISSUE

-Colin Powell, a black man, made a case for war
-is Powell hiding? he doesn't show his face in public anymore
-who do you think kill our mujahideen in Somalia?
-black Christians!
-this is a battle between Islam and kufr
-Elijah Muhammad thought only the white kaafir was a devil
-every kaafir is a human devil
-when they are pronounced devils in 2:14, He (swt) meant
-both blacks and whites are hypocrites

And when they meet those who believe, they say: "We believe," but when they are alone with their Shayatin (devils - polytheists, hypocrites, etc.), they say: "Truly, we are with you; verily, we were but mocking." (Al-Baqarah 2:14)
