Bismillah…

Before we explain this Surah, lets talk about its names

NAMES FOR SURAH FATIHA

from the root word fataha, meaning to open
1. Al Fatiha, (The Opening Chapter)
2. Al Furqan, (The Criterion)
3. Sabaan Mina Al-Mathani (The 7 Often Repeated Verses)
4. As Shifaa (The Cure)


One day a man was stung by a snake and a Sahabah jumped down to help him
-He was an ordinary man not like the other Sahabahs
-He recited over the man and he became cured
-He was asked what he recited and he said Surah Fatiha

Narrated By Abu Said: A group of the companions of Allah's Apostle proceeded on a journey till they dismounted near one of the Arab tribes and requested them to entertain them as their guests, but they (the tribe people) refused to entertain them. Then the chief of that tribe was bitten by a snake (or stung by a scorpion) and he was given all sorts of treatment, but all in vain. Some of them said, "Will you go to the group (those travelers) who have dismounted near you and see if one of them has something useful?" They came to them and said, "O the group! Our leader has been bitten by a snake (or stung by a scorpion) and we have treated him with everything but nothing benefited him Has anyone of you anything useful?" One of them replied, "Yes, by Allah, I know how to treat with a Ruqya. But. by Allah, we wanted you to receive us as your guests but you refused. I will not treat your patient with a Ruqya till you fix for us something as wages." Consequently they agreed to give those travelers a flock of sheep. The man went with them (the people of the tribe) and started spitting (on the bite) and reciting Surat-al-Fatiha till the patient was healed and started walking as if he had not been sick. When the tribe people paid them their wages they had agreed upon, some of them (the Prophet's companions) said, "Distribute (the sheep)." But the one who treated with the Ruqya said, "Do not do that till we go to Allah's Apostle and mention to him what has happened, and see what he will order us." So they came to Allah's Apostle and mentioned the story to him and he said, "How do you know that Surat-al-Fatiha is a Ruqya? You have done the right thing. Divide (what you have got) and assign for me a share with you." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 71, Hadith #645]

So you are allowed to write Surah Fatiha and dip in water

Surah Fatiha is a cure from every illness. (Darmi, Bahiqi)

5. Umm (The Mother)

-something is called the mother if it is very important
-let’s now explain auzhubillahi minas shaytani rajeem
-we are commanded to recite this before we recite Quran
-we seek refuge in Allah from shaytan before we recite Quran

So when you want to recite the Qur'an, seek refuge with Allah from Shaitan (Satan), the outcast (the cursed one). (An-Nahl 16:98)

7 OCCASIONS WE RECITE AUZHUBILLAHI MINAS SHAYTANI RAJEEM

1. BEFORE RECITING THE QUR'AN

-because forgetfulness is from shaytan

Forgetting to recite Surah Fatiha: Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Whoever does not recite Suraht Al-Fatiha (the first Surah of the Qur'an) in this Salat (prayer), his Salat (prayer) is invalid." [Bukhari 1.718, Narrated 'Ubada bin As'Samit]

2. WHENEVER YOU HAVE WASWASA COMES TO YOU FROM SHAYTAN

And if an evil whisper comes to you from Shaitan (Satan) then seek refuge with Allah. Verily, He is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Al-A'raf 7:200)

3. WHEN YOU SEE A BLACK DOG

-the prophet saw said the black dog is the shaytan
-when the dog is pure black you should kill it
-the shaytan also appears in the form of a black cat

The Prophet (saws), "Were dogs not a species of creature I should command that they all be killed; but kill every pure black one." [Muslim, Narrated Abu Dharr: "...The black dog is a devil."]

4. WHEN YOU HEAR THE BRAYING OF THE DONKEY

-this is because the donkey does this because it sees the shaytan

Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: 'When you hear a rooster crowing, then ask Allah for His bounties, for it has seen an angel, and when you hear a donkey braying, then seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan, for it has seen a Shaitan' [Sahih al-Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad, Sahih al-Jami #611]

5. WHEN YOU GET AN INDECENT PROPOSAL

6. WHEN YOU HAVE A BAD DREAM

-the prophet said the bad dream is from the shaytan
-and the true dream is the 46 part of prophesy

The Prophet said, "A good dream that comes true is from Allah, and a bad dream is from Satan, so if anyone of you sees a bad dream, he should seek refuge with Allah from Satan and should spit on the left, for the bad dream will not harm him." BUKHARI 9/ 87/ 115

-when you see a bad dream seeks refuge from shaytan and spit on the left side
-shaikh interpreted a dream sometime ago
-the following day the man was sacked
-because he had an argument with a kaafir
-some dreams are so clear

Narrated By Anas bin Malik: Allah's Apostle said, "A good dream (that comes true) of a righteous man is one of forty-six parts of prophetism." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 87, Hadith #112]

7. WHEN YOU BECOME ANGRY


The Prophet said, "A good dream that comes true is from Allah, and a bad dream is from Satan, so if anyone of you sees a bad dream, he should seek refuge with Allah from Satan and should spit on the left, for the bad dream will not harm him." BUKHARI 9/ 87/ 115

“Anger is from Shaitan and Shaitan was created from the fire and nothing can extinguish fire except water. Therefore if anyone of you gets angry, perform wadhu”. Ahmad 5/152


-the prophet said anger is from the shaytan
-and the shaytan was created from fire

Calmness is from Allah and haste is from shaytaan [hadith No. 8 Al-'ilm al-nafi']

Shaikh said he can’t find an 8th occasion
-but if you do please tell him with backing
-haste, anger, forgetfulness, waswasa are all from shaytan
-therefore seek refuge from him
-by reciting auzhubillahi minas shaytani rajeem

And if an evil whisper comes to you from Shaitan (Satan) then seek refuge with Allah. Verily, He is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Al-A'raf 7:200)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful (Al-Fatihah 1:1)


First ayat of Surah Fatiha is Bismillahir rahmanir raheem
-there are differences of opinion about it
-but Imam Ahmad and Imam Shafi’i said it is a part of Surah Fatiha
-but the Hanafis don’t see it as an ayat of Surah Fatiha

WHEN DO YOU RECITE BISMILLAH

1. WHEN YOU ARE RECITING SURAH FATIHA
2. SAY BISMILLAH BEFORE YOU EAT
3. BEFORE YOU DRINK
4. BEFORE YOU MAKE WUDU
5. BEFORE YOU GO TO BED W/ YOUR WIFE
6. BEFORE YOU DO EVERY SINGLE HALAL ACT


Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet said, "If anyone of you, when having sexual intercourse with his wife, says: Bismillah, Allahumma jannibni-Sh-Shaitan wa jannib-ish-Shaitan ma razaqtana, and if it is destined that they should have a child, then Satan will never be able to harm him." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, Hadith #094]

Narrated By 'Umar bin Abi Salama: I was a boy under the care of Allah's Apostle and my hand used to go around the dish while I was eating. So Allah's Apostle said to me, 'O boy! Mention the Name of Allah and eat with your right hand, and eat of the dish what is nearer to you." Since then I have applied those instructions when eating. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 65, Hadith #288]

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "There is no Wudu (ablution) for one who does not mention Allah's Name upon it. (Reported by Ahmad)

Umar bin Abi Salamah related that Rasulullah (saw) said, "Say 'Bismillah', eat with your right hand and eat what is near you."


-the Hanbali madhab said if you don’t recite bismillah you have no salat and no wudu
-your wudu is valid but lacking in barakah
-that’s the opinion of the jamhoor
-but the Hanbalis say no
-the correct opinion is that of the jamhoor

Jamhoor <<<< the Majority “ANY SIGNIFICANT ACT that does not begin ‘in the name of Allah’ is severed.” (Nasa’i)

7. before slaughtering

-any halal act you do without reciting Bismillah is lacking in barakah

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "There is no Wudu (ablution) for one who does not mention Allah's Name upon it. (Reported by Ahmad)

-even before going to bed with your wife
-can a person say Bismillah before drinking alcohol
-if you cannot say Bismillah before doing an act you are not allowed to do it
-so you are not allowed to recite Bismillah before drinking these alcoholic drinks
-before slaughtering you say Bismillah Allahu Akbar
-if a Muslim is coming to slaughter and forgot to say Bismillah its halal
-but you eating it should say Bismillah

CAN WE EAT MEAT THAT HAS BEEN 'STUNNED?'
- -we can't eat meat that the high-voltage stunning killed the animal
-if they stunned the meat with a low voltage and the animal did not die
-as a result and then they cut the throat then it is halal
-we CAN eat meat had low-voltage and the animal was killed by slicing the throat
-but if high voltage and it dies as a result then its haraam
-it’s halal to eat slaughtering of Jews
-because they are particular about slaughtering
-shaikh's fiqhul waaqi is strong mash’allah
-this is how we should be
-you are allowed to eat slaughtering of people
-if they forget to say Bismillah
-what makes the meat halal
-is if the blood runs out
-and no false god was named
-at the time of slaughter
-we can eat slaughtering of Jews and Christians
-if they slaughter it and blood comes out
-at the time of slaughter if a false god
-was mentioned and you eat it then you become a kaafir
-the shirk is major; not minor
-or the animal died by itself and you make it halal to eat it
-then it is major haraam
-it makes you become a kaafir

Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal), for sure it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allah)(Al-An'am 6:121)

And certainly, the Shayatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [by making Al¬ Maytatah (a dead animal) legal by eating it], then you would indeed be Mushrikûn (polytheists) [because they (devils and their friends)(Al-An'am 6:121)

Made lawful to you to eat that which Allah has made unlawful to eat and you obeyed them by considering it lawful to eat, and by doing so you worshipped them, and to worship others besides Allah is polytheism]. (Al-An'am 6:121)


Allah said if you follow the kaafir
-and eat the dead meat you become a kaafir
-because they made halal to you to eat what Allah has made haraam
-and by doing so you worship them
-this is polytheism

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H): “Whenever a person makes halal what is haraam by consensus or makes haraam what is halal by consensus or replaces the Sharee’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” – “Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 3/267

TO KILL AN ANIMAL IN THE NAME OF A FALSE DEITY IS NOT MINOR SHIRK; IT IS MAJOR SHIRK

Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal), for sure it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allah).And certainly, the Shayatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [by making Al¬ Maytatah (a dead animal) legal by eating it], then you would indeed be Mushrikûn (polytheists) [because they (devils and their friends) made lawful to you to eat that which Allah has made unlawful to eat and you obeyed them by considering it lawful to eat, and by doing so you worshipped them, and to worship others besides Allah is polytheism]. (Al-An'am 6:121)

Imaam Nawawi said it’s a Major Shirk !

-Imam Nawawi said it is major shirk to kill an animal in the name of a false deity
-your shirk is the shirk of legislating, you, the person that did it

SECOND AYAH OF SURAH FATIHA

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Fatihah 1:2)

Alhamdulillahi Rabil Aalameen


-you practise ikhlaas an niyyah
-by reciting this ayat
-the prophet said 3 men will be dragged on their faces
-on Judgment Day; and they all did good

1. THE MUJAHID
2. THE SPENDER
3. THE SCHOLAR

“Correcting of the intention by a student of sacred knowledge is essential. Thus, whosoever seeks the knowledge of Hadith (m, and other sciences of Islamic knowledge) to compete with others, to show-off, to achieve worldly gains or so that people praise him and his knowledge, then surely he has incurred loss. And if he seeks sacred knowledge for the sake of pleasing Allah Almighty and gaining rewards from Allah…and to benefit other people, then indeed he has triumphed. And if one’s intention is combined with the two, then the ruling (hukm) will be according to what is more dominant (ghalib).” (Dhahabi, al-Muqizah fi Ilm Mustalah al-Hadith with footnotes by Shaykh Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah, P. 65)


-they all did their acts without ikhlaas an niyyah
-they were seeking fame and fortune
-you are not a cultural Muslim if you recite this ayat
-you are free from the shirk of riyaa
-Rabb means somebody that creates something molds it and brings it to perfection
-tawheed rububiyyah
-if you believe there is a creator besides Allah you become a kaafir

Whoever seeks knowledge to argue with the scholars, or to show off with the ignorant people, and attracts the faces of the people towards him, Allah would enter him into the Hellfire." [Hasan - Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]

-the Mu’tazilites believe man creates his own actions
-some people ask questions to show off
-but others ask questions to teach others with dodgy aqeeda
-this person's intention is pure
-you are not allowed to ask questions to show off or incriminating questions
-Allah said Aalameen

On the authority of Abu Hurairah ‘Abd-ur-Rahmaan ibn Sakhr (radi allahu ‘anhu1) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (saws) say: “What I have forbidden for you, avoid. What I have ordered you [to do], do as much of it as you can. For verily, it was only the excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed [the nations] who were before you” (Agreed Upon) Hadith No. 9 from 40 Hadith it was only the excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed [the nations] who were before you” (Agreed Upon) Hadith No. 9 from 40 Hadith

1. The World Of Angels
2. The World Of The Jinn
3. The Plants
4. The World Of Human Beings
5. Animals

Shaytan belongs to the jinns

-Jibreel belongs to the angels
-any living entity belongs to a world
-the flowers belong to that of plants
-when Allah said he is going to send a vicegerent on earth
-the angels questioned him
-why were they able to realize man will create mischief and shed blood?

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood
while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You." He (Allah) said: "I know that which you do not know." (Al-Baqarah 2:30)


-why did they speak with such certainty?
-used analogy from the jinns that preceded us
-because they had a free will like us and created mischief
-so they will abuse the free will
-you are allowed to question your shaikhs
-because the angels ask Allah

http://www.4shared.com/audio/SItiOqMc/The_Devils_Deception_Of_the_Sh.html

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

-they say our imams don’t make mistakes
-99% of the things there are lies

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

-they are a Jewish heritage

The Christians say Jesus is Lord - This is Shirk.

"While Allah has created you and what you make!" (As-Saffat 37:96)

- Every action is created by Allah.
- When you woke up in the Morning to pray Fajr, this was an action created by Allah.
- You will be punished for evil deeds, for you are a free human being.

THIRD AYAH:

The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (Al-Fatihah 1:3)

These 2 attributes were also mentioned in the first ayah.

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful (Al-Fatihah 1:1)

- Allah mentions them again because these 2 are the most important attribute of Allah
- The others are Names & attributes describing Allah.
- No one can enter Paradise except by the mercy of Allah.

Allah's Apostle said, "A woman was tortured and was put in Hell because of a cat which she had kept locked till it died of hunger." Allah's Apostle further said, "(Allah knows better) Allah said (to the woman), 'You neither fed it nor watered when you locked it up, nor did you set it free to eat the insects of the earth.' " [BUKHARI 3/553]

Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: None of you would get into Paradise because of his good deeds alone, and he would not be rescued from Fire, not even I, but because of the Mercy of Allah. [Sahih Muslim, Book 39, Hadith #6769]

The Prophet said, "Do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately, and receive good news because one's good deeds will NOT make him enter Paradise." They asked, "Even you, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "Even I, unless and until Allah bestows His pardon and Mercy on me." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 76, No 474)


The Hadith of the woman who gave water to the Dog
-proves that there are Muslim prostitutes.
-but Allah forgave her because her crime was zina NOT shirk.

Hadith - Bukhari 4:538, Narrated Abu Huraira Allah's Apostle said, "A prostitute was forgiven by Allah, because, passing by a panting dog near a well and seeing that the dog was about to die of thirst, she took off her shoe, and tying it with her head-cover she drew out some water for it. So, Allah forgave her because of that."

3 Meanings of the Third AYAH:

1. Allah sends to Jannah whom He wants
- He sends to Hell whom He wills
- And nobody can change His decision.

NO ONE CAN VETO ALLAH 'TALA

2. No one can intercede on behalf of anybody without Allah's permission.

Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? Ayat-ul-Kursi.] (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

3. Only Allah knows when Judgment Day is

- Even in the Bible when people asked Jesus when is Judgment day?
- Jesus said, even I don’t know... & angels don’t know.

But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36) King James Version

- The Christians say Judgment Day is 26th of.... this year?
- if this is so, then they should hand over their possessions.
- Shaikh will expose all the mistakes on the Bible next Saturday on his radio show.

FOURTH AYAH:

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). (Al-Fatihah 1:4)

FIFTH AYAH:

You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). (Al-Fatihah 1:5)

The Barelvis, the Soofi's are the grave worshipers.

- Hadith to checkmate the Grave worshippers:

964. It is related from Anas, "If there was a drought, 'Umar ibn al-Khattab would ask al-'Abbas ibn 'Abdu'l-Muttalib to do the rain prayer. He would say, 'O Allah, we seek intercession with You by Your Prophet and we ask You for rain. We seek intercession with You by the uncle of our Prophet, so give us rain!'" He added, "And they were given rain." BUKHARI

- Umar (r.a) did not go to the grave of Prophet (pbuh)
- when they were suffering the drought.
- Instead he went to Prophet's (pbuh) uncle.
- When the Prophet (pbuh) was alive, they asked him..
- when he passed away, they asked Prophets (pbuh) uncle.
- If you ask the dead, the grave, you are a kaafir.
- We don’t want Muslims by culture !
- We want Muslims by conviction!!!
- The Barelvis are Muslims who are by culture, their situation is pitiful.
- Its is HARAAM to pray behind a Barelvis - because they are kufaar.

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

- Ayah 39:3 are for the grave worshippers.
- The Barelvis, the Soofis, the Shiites are LIARS & KAAFIR.
- They don’t practice Surah Fatiha ayah 5.
- Those who practise Islam by culture are Jahil, they are not even aware of Tawheed.
- Hence we don’t want Muslims by culture.

The Messenger of Allah said, "The world, with all that it contains, is accursed except for dhikr (the remembrance of Allah) that which pleases Allah; and the religious scholars and seekers of knowledge.'' [At-Tirmidhi]

- We want Muslims by conviction.
- When you recite Surah Fatiha Ayah 5, you recite it with conviction & follow it.
- You don’t follow those who worship the grave worshipers.

SIXTH AYAH:

Guide us to the Straight Way. (Al-Fatihah 1:6)


- You are begging Allah for ONE thing in Surah Fatiha & that is GUIDANCE.
- The life after death, i.e. Barzakh, you'll be examined by the Angels.

The 3 main questions we’re asked in the grave?.
1. Who is your Lord?
2. Who is your Prophet?
3. What is your Deen?


The 2 Angels will be Munkar & Nakeer.

Narrated By Al-Bara' ibn Azib: We went out with the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) accompanying the bier of a man of the Ansar. When we reached his grave, it was not yet dug. So the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) sat down and we also sat down around him as if birds were over our heads. He had in his hand a stick with which he was scratching the ground. He then raised his head and said: Seek refuge with Allah from the punishment in the grave. He said it twice or thrice. The version of Jabir adds here: He hears the beat of their sandals when they go back, and at that moment he is asked: O so and so! Who is your Lord, what is your religion, and who is your Prophet? Hannad's version says: Two angels will come to him, make him sit up and ask him: Who is your Lord? He will reply: My Lord is Allah. They will ask him: What is your religion? He will reply: My religion is Islam. They will ask him: What is your opinion about the man who was sent on a mission among you? He will reply: He is the Apostle of Allah (pbuh). They will ask: Who made you aware of this? He will reply: I read Allah's Book, believed in it, and considered it true; which is verified by Allah's words: "Allah's Book, believed in it, and considered it true, which is verified by Allah's words: "Allah establishes those who believe with the word that stands firm in this world and the next." The agreed version reads: Then a crier will call from Heaven: My servant has spoken the truth, so spread a bed for him from Paradise, clothe him from Paradise, and open a door for him into Paradise. So some of its air and perfume will come to him, and a space will be made for him as far as the eye can see. He also mentioned the death of the infidel, saying: His spirit will be restored to his body, two angels will come to him, make him sit up and ask him: Who is your Lord? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. They will ask him: What is your religion? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. They will ask: Who was the man who was sent on a mission among you? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. Then a crier will call from Heaven: He has lied, so spread a bed for him from Hell, clothe him from Hell, and open for him a door into Hell. Then some of its heat and pestilential wind will come to him, and his grave will be compressed, so that his ribs will be crushed together. Jabir's version adds: One who is blind and dumb will then be placed in charge of him, having a sledge-hammer such that if a mountain were struck with it, it would become dust. He will give him a blow with it which will be heard by everything between the east and the west except by men and jinn, and he will become dust. Then his spirit will be restored to him. [Abu Dawud, Book 35, Hadith #4735]

GOI = GENTILE
- A Jew or Christian can never answer the above 3 questions,
- because they do not practise the questions.
- You cant answer these questions, without Hidaaya.
- We recite Surah Fatiha 17 times in a day & ask Allah for Hidaaya.
- Most people will not be able to pass the Exams.

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)

Only if you are a firm Muslim can you answer the 3 main questions after death, i.e. in barzakh.

O you who believe! Fear Allah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah. (Aali Imran 3:102)


Make sure you die as a firm Muslim with Hidaaya.

YOU ARE ON HIDAAYA WHEN YOU GET THREE THINGS RIGHT:
1. Your Aqeedah

- Abu Hanifa said TAHWEED IS FIQH AL-AKBAR;
- your Aqeeda should be right not your Wudhu, etc.
- The greatest fiqh is NOT to learn about wudu/ghusl;
- the greatest fiqh is to learn proper aqeeda
- Abu Hanifa said anyone who does not
- believe that Allah is over the Arsh is a kaafir.
- Abu Hanifa used to make takfir on those who didn’t
- believe Allah (swt) was on His Arsh
- The Deobandis and Barelvis are NOT following Abu Hanifa
- They are following the shaytaan

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)

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

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)

2. You need to get your Fiqh right.

Covenant of Security is Fiqh & Aqeedah.

-if you believe that there is covenant of Security, your Fiqh is incorrect.

- If you reject one ayah, you reject all the Ayah.
- Abu Hanifa said: if you see the Fire worshipper having his festival &
- you donate an egg to the festival, you become a kaafir.
- Those who say Shaikh is hard on his Takfeer
- its because he has read the books of classical scholars.
- Those who say otherwise are unaware.
- Most Muslims are unaware of Al Walaa wal Baraa.

“The one who loves for the sake of Allah, hates for the sake of Allah, gives for the sake of Allah and withholds for the sake of Allah has completed the faith.” (Recorded in Abu Dawood)

- The MOST important thing is Hidaaya.
- Without Hidaaya we will not be able to answer the questions
- in the grave by Munkeer & Nakeer.

SEVENTH AYAH:

The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace , not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). (Al-Fatihah 1:7)

WHO ARE THE PEOPLE ALLAH HAS BLESSED?

1. Companions of Noah

- Basically all the companions of the Prophets.
- They are called the blessed Ones.
- The Jews are the Angered ones.

THE REASONS ARE:
1. They changed the book of Allah.
2. They mixed truth with falsehood.
3. They hide the truth.
4. They insult, slander Allah.


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)

5. Everything Haraam they make it Halaal & vice versa.

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), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurat (Torah)


6. They kill the Prophets.

and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilah (God - Allah) La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)[]. Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." (At-Tawbah 9:31)

Ibnu Abass said that the Prophet said: "Verily the most painful punishment on the Day of Judgment are those who kill the prophets or people murdered by the prophet or kill one of his parents, and making statues and knowledgeable people who do not benefit from his knowledge." - (Reported by Baihaqi)


And indeed, We gave Mûsa (Moses) the Book and followed him up with a succession of Messengers. And We gave 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), clear signs and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)].

Is it that whenever there came to you a Messenger with what you yourselves desired not, you grew arrogant? Some, you disbelieved and some, you killed. (Al-Baqarah 2:87)

7. They dabble in black magic

And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves, if they but knew. (Al-Baqarah 2:102)


3 THINGS YOU GET RIGHT TO KNOW YOU ARE ON THE STRAIGHT PATH:
1. Aqeedah
2. Fiqh
3. Manhaj


- A munafiqh will always hide behind the covenant of security.
- You are not allowed to take your deen from those
- who say there is covenant of security.
- You are not to call for Shariah, you should invite to tawheed first.

"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 right manhaj is to call for tawheed to the kaafir, not Shariah.
- For they need to be aware who is Allah first.
- You cant apply the hadood of Shariah in darul Kuffaar,
- i.e. cutting of hands of a thief.
- The 4 great Imaams said it is Haraam to implement the hadood in darul kuffaar.

It is reported on the authority of Ibn `Abbas (Radhi Allaahu Anhu) that Allah's Messenger said when he sent Mu`aaz (Radhi Allaahu Anhu) to Yemen: "You are going to a people who are from the People of the Book: So the first thing to which you call them should be the testimony that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah ." - And in another narration: "that they testify to the Oneness of Allah ." - "And if they obey you in that, then inform them that Allah has made compulsory upon them five prayers every day and night. And if they obey you in that, then inform them that Allah has made incumbent upon them a charity (Zakah) which is to be taken from the rich among them and given to their poor. And if they obey you in that then be careful not to take the best of their wealth (as Zakah), and be careful of the supplication of those who have suffered injustice, for there is no obstacle between it and Allah . (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)

Have you seen him who takes his own lust (vain desires) as his ilah (god), and Allah knowing (him as such), left him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart, and put a cover on his sight. Who then will guide him after Allah? Will you not then remember? (Al-Jathiyah 45:23)

David Cameron said the UK is "sick" society

-this is nothing new, Shaikh has been teaching us for over a year
-the black & white (it’s not about color) are the worse of the creatures
-the Ethiopians and Kenyans (both dark skinned not light)
-went in to Somalia to fight Muslims
-who said the white are worse than the blacks?
-it's not about color
-those who went astray are the Christians
-The Counsel of Nicea, they changed the religion of Jesus (a.s) into paganism
-Christianity became Trinity
-Before we beg ALLAH, we must praise HIM and thank HIM
-this is the adab of making du'a to ALLAH
-ALLAH used al-Fatiha to teach us good manners
-when it comes to make du'a to HIM
-this is the right manner with which we beg ALLAH
-you get the guidance you asked for from Surah Baqara till the end

All the Surahs contain aqeeda, fiqh and manhaj which is the guidance; those who preach the covenant have betrayed the blood of the Mujahideen
