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)

-we also explained the Ibrahim was neither Jew or Christian but upright Muslim
-the Jews and Christians take their priests and rabbis as lords

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)... (At-Tawbah 9:31)

In life, people like to claim things which are not real; but things that are fakes
-they will mention scholars and shaikhs and imams, because they think that gives them credibility
-such as those who follow Abu Hanifa and he was
-the father of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamm'ah

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked, ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved (‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

-he made takfir on those who did not believe
-Allah was on His arsh / above the heavens
-so the Goofi Soofis and the Barelvis who do not believe this
-are not agreeing w/ whom they say they follow, Abu Hanifa

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

If you say you don't know where the throne is,
-you're disbelieving because
-we're told the throne is above the heavens
-so these groups are following their own corrupted desires
-who are they trying to fool by saying they follow Abu Hanifa?
-the Tablighi and Goofi Soofis and Barelvis all say they follow Abu Hanifa
-but they are lying and should be ashamed of themselves

it is narrated that the companion Mu’awiyah ibn al-Hakam, (RA) slapped his servant girl who used to tend his sheep, and as a result went to the Prophet (SAWS) and asked what should be done as atonement for having slapped her. The Prophet replied, "Bring her to me" so Mu’awiyah brought her to the Prophet. 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)

-these others believe Allah 'tala is everywhere
-but the shaikh they follow made takfir on those who believe what they do!
-their aqeeda is 100% diametrically opposed to what Abu Hanifa believed

So, since they don't follow Abu Hanifa, who do they follow?
-nothing except their evil and corrupted desires

Why did scholars make takfir on those who say Allah is everywhere?
-they were making takfir on those who believe in union (wahdatul wujood)
-this is when people think they are SO pious, they've become Allah 'tala
-they make haraam, halal and what is halal, haraam
-because they are above the law
-but we refute them by saying: there are things that are haraam for Allah to do
-the Creator is not above the law
-even He (swt) must abide by the law

“Oh, my servants! I have made oppression haraam (forbidden) upon myself, and also between you. So do not oppress each other. [Sahih Muslim]

Who told you that Allah is above the law?

...And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves. (Aali Imran 3:182)

...for You never break (Your) Promise." (Aali Imran 3:194)

Allah doesn't break His promises; it’s haraam for Him to do so
-so these people are so jahil, if they were reading their Qur'an, they'd know Allah is not above the law

Allah said, 'how can I beget a son when I have no wife?'


He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything. (Al-An'am 6:101)

-so it is haraam for Allah to beget a son

Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allah, (the) One. (Al-Ikhlas 112:1)

"Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks). (Al-Ikhlas 112:2)

"He begets not, nor was He begotten; (Al-Ikhlas 112:3)

"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." (Al-Ikhlas 112:4)

The Prophet asked,

-'do you know what the rights of man are over Allah and Allah over man?'
-for Him not to have you single out any other partners to Him (swt)
-for you not to be oppressed if you do not single our partners to Him (swt)

he Prophet said, "O Mu'adh! Do you know what Allah's Right upon His slaves is?" I said, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet said, "To worship Him (Allah) Alone and to join none in worship with Him (Allah). Do you know what their right upon Him is?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know best." The Prophet said, "Not to punish them (if they do so)." [Bukhari Volume 9, Book 93, Number 470]

Muslims who end up in hell for sins
, such as zina and such,
-will eventually come out of the Hellfire
-so they eventually come out w/ the shafa’a of Muhammad (saws)
-the only people He can condemn to Hellfire forever are the:
-Barelvis and Shiites

Narrated By Anas: The Prophet said, "Whoever said "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of a barley grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said: "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of a wheat grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of an atom will be taken out of Hell." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 2.
Hadith #042]

-even though Shiites are 5 star kaafirs, they are convinced they are Muslims
-look at their aqeeda:


“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)

So if we die upon tawheed, we can't be condemned to hellfire forever; we come out w/ shafa’a

The fools (pagans, hypocrites, and Jews) among the people will say, "What has turned them (Muslims) from their Qiblah [prayer direction (towards Jerusalem)] to which they were used to face in prayer." Say, (O Muhammad ) "To Allah belong both, east and the west. He guides whom He wills to a Straight Way." (Al-Baqarah 2:142)

The Rasool (pbuh) faced Jerusalem as his 1st Qibla for about 17 months
-then they abandoned Jerusalem to face Makkah
-the hypocrites will ask, 'why did Muhammad abandon Jerusalem?'
-this ayah shows us that a kaafir will always try to find a fault w/ Islam
-when they think they’ve found a fault [so-called fault]
-they say they can't embrace Islam
-changing the Qibla was something they nit-picked at ...
-the munafiqhs and kaafirs will use the changing of the Qibla against us
-they will always find something
-they will think our religion is confusing or we're

Narrated By 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: While the people were offering the Fajr prayer at Quba (near Medina), someone came to them and said: "It has been revealed to Allah's Apostle tonight, and he has been ordered to pray facing the Ka'ba." So turn your faces to the Ka'ba. Those people were facing Sham (Jerusalem) so they turned their faces towards Ka'ba (at Mecca). [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 8, Hadith 397]

We use this hadith to refute people who don't believe in hadith aahaad
-aahaad is a rare hadith where only 1 person transmitted the hadith
-so some will say they don't accept this type of hadith
-Hizb ut Tahrir do not believe in hadith aahaad; they want many transmitters
-but Muhammad (saws) sent 1 person to Yemen to teach them their deen

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: When the Prophet sent Muadh to Yemen, he said to him, "You are going to a nation from the people of the Scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite them, be the Tauhid of Allah. If they learn that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them, five prayers to be offered in one day and one night. And if they pray, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them Zakat of their properties and it is to be taken from the rich among them and given to the poor. And if they agree to that, then take from them Zakat but avoid the best property of the people." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith #469]

-this info is for us to use to refute the followers of Hizb ut Tahrir
-the Prophet didn't send 10 Sahabahs to Yemen but one and we follow Muhammad (saws)

One day, a man came out of the desert and said he saw the moon
-do you testify there is no God but Allah and there is only one Messenger, Muhammad?
-he said to call the athaan based on the testimony of one man!

Abdullah ibn Abbas said : A Bedouin came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: I have sighted the moon. Al-Hasan added in his version: that is, of Ramadan. He asked: Do you testify that there is no god but Allah? He replied: Yes. He again asked: Do you testify that Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah? He replied: Yes. and he testified that he had sighted the moon. He said: Bilal, announce to the people that they must fast tomorrow. ABU DAWUD No 2333

-the entire ummah was called to fast base on the testimony of one man!
-so aahaad is Sunnah
-so where is the aqeeda from that they don't take hadith aahaad into their aqeeda?
-they imply and insinuate that the Rasool (pbuh) a dis-service when he began Ramadan
-based on the testimony of one man
-he took the testimony of one man who said: La illah illa Allah
-the manhaj of the Prophet is not to establish Shariah
-but we're to invite them to La illah illa Allah
-we don't give Shariah to the people in the UK, but give them tawheed first

ATHEISTS believe God is a myth
-the majority of the UK people is atheism

He sent Muadh ibn Jabal to Yemen saying " 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)

The tawheed of Allah is La Ilaha Ill Allah Muhammadur Rasool Allah

-there are 2 types of Surahs, one from Makkah and one from Madina
-always quote the above hadith to those in darul harb who start off w/ Shariah
-their manhaj is upside down and around
-no wonder some people broke away and started the Ansar movement
-it does not coincide w/ the manhaj of the Rasool (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
-we can't do Shariah in UK or US, such as cut off hand of thief for stealing a car
-so many cars are stolen all the time in UK
-we can't kill a gay in darul harb, such as if we killed a gay in the UK
-they are treated like Isa and these men go to boarding schools and fraternities
-this is where they dabble in homes-xual activity
-when these men grow up to become MPs, they control the British Parliament
-so they vote FOR the law of man and man marrying / woman and woman marrying
-this was a landslide victory because the voters,
-so many, were homos-xuals to begin with

So, we can't implement Shariah in London
-or we'd go to prison and never come out
-those who kill cops or homos-xuals get sentenced to about 30 years
-but their pedophiles get short prison sentence!

After 30 years in prison, they might still be there longer
-because the judge RECOMMENDED 30 years but afterward, they stay another 10 years
-if the judge wakes up [on the wrong side of the bed / a bad mood]
-he might sentence you to a longer sentence

MYRA HINDLEY: (never seems to get out of prison)

In the ayah where the Prophet (saws) was told to change from Jerusalem to Makkah
-this shows that some Shariah has been abrogated
-in the early stages of Islam, when a man went to bed
-w/ his wife and he did NOT ejaculate
-he did not need to make ghusl but now, they do it now,
-regardless of the ejaculation or not

In the early days of Islam, Muslimahs could marry kaafirs but that was abrogated
-when shaikh was in Nigeria, he met some Goofi Soofis
-he stayed w/ the Governor of Nigeria (who gave him his own home and maids)
-one of the maids was married to a Christian and
-shaikh told her that her marriage was bautil
-and her kids are bastard kids
-Shaikh does not mince his words and the British media
-called him the " FIRE BRAND SHAIKH "
-when shaikh was released from prison, he decided to go to Africa,
-where he didn't need a translator
-in Lagos, Nigeria, that maid's husband was a Christian
-and she was a Muslim (even wore hijab)
-some hijabs are called the RITA MARLEY hijabs (exposes ears and neck)
-this is the type of hijab she wore
-the woman nearly had a heart attack when shaikh said her husband was a kaafir
-no shaikh in Nigeria ever told her what Shaikh told her
-she was very emotional about what shaikh said

2 of the Prophet's daughters were married to kaafirs (Abu Lahab’s sons)
-but this law is abrogated as Muslim women are NOT permitted to marry kaafirs

O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah 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-Mumtahinah 60:10)

As a shaikh,
it is his duty to say these women are married to kaafirs,
-their marriage is bautil and her kids are bastards
-" FIRE BRAND SHAIKH “does not water down the deen
-don't sugar coat the message

Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6)

When Shaikh gave the tafseer of this ayah
, he was said to be preaching HATE SPEECH
-this got him in trouble in the UK
-we can not sugar coat the truth: "call a spade a spade"

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

We put people's future in jeopardy when [we beat around the bush]

Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve . (Al-Baqarah 2:62)

Shaikh asked Shaikh Zuman to explain this ayah to him
-is there hope for Jews and Christians to go to Paradise
-he said this ayah is referring to Isa and Musa's followers
-then he quoted 98:6 to explain 2:62

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (Aali Imran 3:85)

Any religion but Islam will NOT be accepted on Judgment Day

-in our religion, we have abrogated evidences
-such as when Ali heard a man giving a tafseer
-and asked him, do you know the verses that are abrogated?
-he said no and he was told to leave and not give any more speeches

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)

In that time,
a woman who committed zina went under house arrest
-but this ayah is now abrogated [by 24:2] to giving 100 lashes each [boy and girl]

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

In the early stages of Islam, when you drink alcohol, you did not do haraam
-but this law is abrogated now, as the new law says, if we drink alcohol
-we have no salah for 40 days / 40 nights
-but you still must pray even though it's not accepted
-see 5:90 for the hujjah

O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, AlAnsab, and Asalam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:90)

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar; “Whosoever drinks, alcohol even though he does not get intoxicated, as long as he has a drop of wine in his stomach and in his veins, his salah will not be accepted. If he dies while he is in that situation, he dies as an infidel. The salah of that who drinks alcohol and get intoxicated is not accepted for forty days and if he dies in that situation, he dies as an infidel.” (Nasai)

Another abrogation that took place in Islam was re: the graves

-it was haraam to visit the graves but Muhammad (saws) changed this
-because he felt it helped them think of their own deaths
-it is haraam for women to visit the graves
-but when Aisha (r.a.) brother died, she went to the gave
-and the explanation is that a muslimah can visit the grave as a "1 of"
-.. [once or twice time in her life]

Drinkers are faasiq, not a kaafir
-Khawarijj will say they are kaafirs but they are not
-the man in the fornication act is a Muslim but not a Mu’min

The report narrated by al-Bukhaari (6780) from ‘Umar, that there was a man at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) whose name was ‘Abd-Allaah, but his nickname was Himaar (donkey), and he used to make the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) laugh. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had had him flogged for drinking, then he was brought one day and he commanded that he be flogged, and a man who was there said, “O Allaah, curse him, how often he is brought [for this reason]!” But the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Do not curse him, for by Allaah what I know about him is that he loves Allaah and His Messenger.”

-this is our aqeeda (ASWJ)

-major and minor

1. to insult your brother is a minor kufr
2. to say to dismantle the Shariah is a minor kufr, is a major kufr

Only Khawarijj
-make takfir on drinkers and those who have affairs or gamble in casinos

-these will all come out of the hellfire by the shafa’a of Muhammad (saws)

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)

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah,... (An-Nur 24:2)

Shaikh asked his shaikhs why Allah mentioned the fornicating girl 1st
-there are 3 opinions as to why the fornicating girl was mentioned 1st

1. the libido of a woman is higher than that of a man
-the testosterone of the man will win hands-down over the woman's estrogen

2. because zina is more damaging for a girl (cause a man can lie and say he is a virgin)

Shaikh accepts the 2nd Tafsir
-if a man is circumcised and he sleeps w/ a woman who has AIDS,
-he might not catch it
-but nearly all women get AIDS from a man who has it
-because HIV is in the semen of men
-women w/ multiple s-x partners often have rotten insides
-they need an operation: hysterectomy

God did not design the body of a woman to [sleep around]
-men might escape the AIDS virus if he is circumcised
-and promiscuous women often get hysterectomy [they can't have any babies]

3. zina is more shameful for a girl
-this tafsir is also acceptable

So, if a man has 10 girlfriends, regardless of where he lives,
-he's said to be doing well for himself
-especially if the girls are pretty
-but if the woman has 10 boyfriends, she is called bad names
-there is a double standard

In UK, if a Pakistani man had many girlfriends, his parents turn away
-but if girls did it, they would get honor killing
-because "men are dogs and daughters are diamonds"

In the psyche of people: boys will always be boys
-no one wants to kill him
-vasectomy is of the MALE organ / hysterectomy is of the FEMALE =
-either makes you not be able to have babies

BILL CLINTON had an [inappropriate relationship]
-but the whole country forgave him
-if it were Hillary, they would have said to divorce her
-when NELSON MANDELA was in prison for 27 years,
-his wife used to have s-x w/ her solicitor
-when he was released, he divorced her, even though she campaigned for his release
-Hillary Clinton forgave Bill Clinton because she knew men were dogs

"To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism)." (Al-Kafirun 109:6)

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

YOU TO YOUR WAY, ME TO MY WAY: is an abrogated ayah
-the word FITNAH in this ayah means SHIRK
-so now we fight them till there's no more fitnah

Munafiqhs always quote abrogated evidences
-he might not realize but if he does, he hangs on to it
-to worship his evil and corrupted desires
-no one is more evil than the man who lies on Allah

And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allāh, while he is being invited to Islām? And Allāh guides not the people who are Zālimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk. (As-Saff 61:7)

O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, AlAnsab, and Al¬ Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:90)

-some of you marry women when you're not circumcised
-this is haraam

QUESTION 1: Saed Ali says 9:5, and/or 9:29 abrogates YOU TO YOUR WAY, ME TO MINE, but you are saying 8:39 does?

ANSWER 1: No, we didn’t mention 8:39 in relation to abrogation of 9:5
**all the verses of the Qur'an [verse of the sword, see 9:5] abrogate 109:6
-when the sacred months are in Islam, we don't fight
-but in Ramadan, we fight because it's the month of glorious victories
-for the mujahideen
-it’s not forbidden to fight in Ramadan
-fitnah means 'shirk'

"To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism)." (Al-Kafirun 109:6)
