Bismillah....

The first part of these notes on the topic of Jokers in the Pack: Refuting the Mu’tazila is Shaikh Faisal’s brief recap of the dars from “Jokers in the Pack: Refuting the Khawarij;” we’ve left the audio and notes, in tact, w/o amending anything that Shaikh said. We’ve clearly marked the part of the notes where Shaikh Faisal began his concentration on refuting the Mu’tazila.


Recapping notes from Jokers in the Pack: Refuting the Khawarij:

Khawarij were the first deviant group to emerge in the Ummah
-that is an Ijma amongst the scholars
-Jamatul Muslimeen believe that if you are forced to a kaafir court house,
-you are a kaafir
-if you stop at the red light you are a kaafir
-because you acknowledge the law of the Kuffaar

Maslaha: public interest
-how can they make takfir on the Muslims who stop at the red light?
-that is a Khawarij characteristic; they say:
-if you apply for a Saudi or Pakistani passport, they make takfir on you
-that is because the passport is given to you by the Kuffar
-if you download MSN, Yahoo Messenger, or Skype,
-and if you click on "Agree", you are a kaafir
-all of that is the aqeeda of the Khawarij

Ahmed Shukri Mustafa
-said that if you are to drink the tap water, you are a kaafir
-if you are in a soccer match, and you obey the referee, you are a kaafir
-if you do not home school the kids, you are a kaafir
-and if you send the kids to a Catholic school, you are considered as kaafir
-even if you send them to state school, you are a kaafir
-they say you are a kaafir because Makkah and Madina is Darul Harb
-if you pray behind the Imams there, you are a kaafir
-because these Imams are government scholars

Debate between Imam Ahmed and Shafi’i on Salah
-Sahabah said if you do not make salah you are a kaafir
-they would have made takfir on Imam Ahmed and Imam Shafi'i
-Imam Ahmed should have made takfir on Imam Shafi'i
-because he said if you miss salah you are a not a kaafir
-they would also make takfir on Imam Ahmed
-because he didn’t make takfir on Imam Shafi'i
-all Muslims parents in USA & Europe are kuffar
-because they send their kids to state schools
-if you travel with a passport, you are a kaafir
-because you acknowledge the kaafir regime

Ahmed Shukri Mustafa
-said that you are a kaafir when you drink the tap water
-because it comes from the kuffar regimes
-when you get arrested and you appoint a barrister, you are a kaafir
-if you go to university to become a barrister, you are a kaafir
-if you go to Makkah and Madina, and you pray behind the Imams,
-your salah is bautil
-because these Imams are government scholars
-they say Hajj must be stopped
-the previous is all aqeeda of neo-Khawarij
-because Makkah and Madina is Darul harb

Bismillah …

JOKERS IN THE PACK: REFUTING THE MU’TAZILA

Mu'tazila: Rationalist
Mu’tazila - to withdraw

HOW DID THIS WORD COME ABOUT?

Hasan al-Basri was in a masjid in Iraq

-he was in the masjid in Iraq - and someone came to him and said:
-Shaikh ul Islam, I met people who make takfir on Muslims
-who perpetrate a major sin
-then I met others who give him complete hope

Those who make takfir = Khawarij
-someone came to him and said "Shaikhul Islam,
-I met people who made takfir on Muslims
-who perpetrate takfir on Muslims who commit major sins"

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION REGARDING THESE TWO SORTS OF PEOPLE?
-"others who gave Muslims complete hope to those who commit sins."
-before Hasan al Basri could come out with his answer

Wasil ibn Ataa said
-"As far as I am concerned, such a person is neither a Muslim nor a Kaafir"
-such a person is on the fence

ALLAH divided mankind into 3 categories

1: Muslim
2: Kaafir
3: Munafiqh

ALLAH divided mankind in the Qur'an

-and there is no 4th category!

A Faasiq is a Muslim and a deviant is a Muslim
-the hadith concerning the 73 sects..
-they are still Muslims and they will not abide in Hell forever

..."My Ummah will be fragmented into seventy-three (73) sects. All of them will be in Hell Fire except one sect. They (the Companions) said: Allah's Messenger, which is that? Whereupon he said: It is one to which I and my companions belong". [Tirmidhi. 171] 

The Murtad is a Kaafir

-a Zindeeq is a kaafir because he is a heretic
-therefore, there is no fourth category
-dig and dig, but you will not find a fourth category

Wasil ibn Ataa came up with a fourth category
-if you drink alcohol or commit zina, you are on the fence
-Hasan al Basri found his Aqeeda repellent
-the worst Bid'ah is not in regards to Fiqh but it’s in regards to Aqeeda
-Imam Abu Hanifa said that Tawheed is Fiqh al -Akbar
-being on the fence is contradictory to Aqeeda
-this Bid'ah is regarding Aqeeda and not Fiqh
-I'tazila: to break away

Amr ibn Ubayd
-from the statement of Hasan al-Basri to Wasil ibn Ataa,
-came the word MU'TAZILA
-Wasil ibn Ataa died in 131 AH
-he is the founder of the Mu`tazilite Movement

The Khawarij make takfir on people committing major sins
-Murjia give complete hope to those who commit major sins
-because you recite the Shahadah, it is wajib for ALLAH to give you Jannah
-the Mu'tazila believe you are neither a Muslim nor a Kaafir,
-and in the Hereafter, you will abide in Hellfire forever

ASWJ say
-if a person has a girlfriend or drinks alcohol, he is still a Muslim
-there is no sin that can take you outside the folds of Islam except major Kufr

Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (An-Nisa 4:48)

-in Dunya, you are a Muslim, and in the Hereafter,
-ALLAH will punish you or forgive you
-ALLAH forgive whom HE please
-that is our Aqeeda in regards to major sin in dunya

5 Aqeedas in regards to a man who perpetrates major sins

1st Aqeeda:
Khawarij worship out of fear

2nd Aqeeda: Murji'a worship out of hope and they depends completely on the Shahadah
-they give you hope beyond your wildest dream!

3rd Aqeeda: Mu'tazilites say you are on the fence
-in the dunya, you are neither a Muslim nor a Kaafir,
-and in the hereafter you will abide in Hellfire forever

4th Aqeeda: ASWJ will never make takfir on a person committing major sin in dunya
-and in the Hereafter, ALLAH can either punish you, or give you Jannah straight
-or not punish you at all; Allah ‘tala does as He wills

ALLAH does not forgive Shirk
-but HE forgives anything else as HE pleases
-the correct Aqeeda is that of ASWJ

5th Aqeeda: Jabriyya: Fatalists
-if you cheat on your wife or gamble in casinos,
-blame ALLAH and not the person who commits the sin
-because they say we cannot escape destiny!

In re: the 5 Aqeedas of a man who perpetrates major sins:
-the ONLY correct Aqeeda is that of ASWJ
-the status of a man who drinks is: Faasiq
-Faasiq: a weak Muslim
-in the Hereafter, such a person is under the Mercy of ALLAH
-if ALLAH decides to throw such a person in Hellfire,
-he will not remain therein forever but will be punished
-accordingly and put to Jannah thereafter

NAMES OF THE MU'TAZILITES:

-1: Ahlul Kalam
-2: Mu'attila(Those who reject Allah’s Names & Attributes)
-3: Qadiriyyah [they deny qadr]
-4: Mu'tazila (rationalists)

-because they withdrew from the dars of Hasan al-Basri

-5: Madrasa Aqliyya [they give preference to Aql over Naql]
-6: People of Tawheed and Justice


Imam Shafi'i said that if anyone seeks Divine Knowledge
-by way of [scholasticism] / [philosophy]
-he is a Zindeeq (heretic)

THE TENETS OF THE Mu’tazilites

1st TENET: THEY DENY ALLAH’s 99 NAMES & ATTRIBUTES

-the Christians said we believe in 99 gods besides ALLAH!
-they said we are similar to Christians when we believe in AR-Rahman, ar-Rahim..etc
-they debated the Christians saying they believe in the trinity
-the Christians said to the Mu’tazilites that they also believe in many gods
-so the Mu’tazilites decided to believe in only one name:
-ALLAH, and rejected all the other names
-they will never believe nor accept the other names of ALLAH
-because they might be gods besides ALLAH
-Rasulallah is Muhammad, Abul Qasim, Mustafa, al-Hashir,
-As-Sadiq al-Amin, Al-Aqib
-Rasulallah had many names, does that make him many Muhammad?
-likewise, ALLAH has many Names & Attributes while HE is One Being
-ALLAH has more than 99 Names & Attributes
-but HE kept some of HIS Names to HIMSELF
-because we would go insane trying to understand them
-out of Mercy, ALLAH kept some knowledge to Himself
-they have problems with some of the actions of ALLAH!

By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. [MUSLIM Book 009 No 3572]

And he -peace and blessings be upon him- said when the sun eclipsed: "O community of Muhammad! By Allah, there is no-one more jealous than Allah..." [Narrated by Bukhari]


-they have a problem with hadith of ALLAH being jealous
-by saying that ALLAH is Jealous, you are making ALLAH like one of us
-this hadith is found in Bukhari and Muslim
-ALLAH sees but not like man
-ALLAH listens but not like man

Khalid ibn Abdullah al Qasree, governor of Khorasan
-said to the people to offer their sacrifices for Eid al Adha
-his sacrifice was Ja'd ibn Dirham
-because he denied that Musa (a.s.) didn’t speak to ALLAH and ALLAH is mute
-he claimed that ALLAH could not speak
-he asked the people to sacrifice their animals
-while he would sacrifice Ja'd ibn Dirham
-people will always have trouble with the Names & Attributes of ALLAH
-Mu'tazilites deny them names & attributes and also the actions of ALLAH
-yet they claim to be the torch bearers of Tawheed
-they call themselves the PEOPLE OF TAWHEED

'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habeeb Ibn Abee Habeeb on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather [who] said: I witnessed Khaalid Ibn 'Abdullah Al-Qasree - and he addressed them at Waasit - "Oh People, make sacrifice, may Allah accept it from you. Verily I am sacrificing Al-Ja'd Ibn Dirham, for indeed he claims that Allah did not take Ibrahim as a khaleel (close friend), and [that] He did not speak to Moosa. Most Perfect is He and exalted is He from what Al-Ja'd says." Then he descended and slaughtered him. I say: And the Jahmiyya and Mu’tazila speak with this, and they distort the text of the revelation regarding that, and they claim that the Lord is purified of that [i.e. having spoken to Moses and taken Ibrahim as a khalil] Mukhtasar al-Uluww" of adh-Dhahabi, (p.133).

-in order for ALLAH to speak to a prophet,
-HE would have to create a voice because HE does not have one!
-Abdullah al-Qasree said that if there was another person similar to Ja'd ibn Dirham
-he would chop off his head as well

The Authority Of Abu Hurayrah: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said : "Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?" [Hadith Qudsi 35]

Mu'tazilites also have a problem with the hadith

-where ALLAH descends on the first heaven every night
-they don’t want to believe that ALLAH ''descends''
-this hadith is found in Bukhari
-they claim that an angel descends instead of ALLAH

Allah's Apostle said, "Every night when it is the last third of the night, our Lord, the Superior, the Blessed, descends to the nearest heaven and says: Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?. " (See Hadith No. 246, Vol. 2 Abu Huraira)

ASWJ say that ALLAH descends in a way that befit HIS Majesty

-to say that an angel descends is Shirk because and angel cannot forgive yours sins
-the Shi'a & Mu'tazilites are similar in Aqeeda
-the Shi'a borrowed from Aqeeda of Mu’tazilites

**when Shaikh was in university, he specialized in deviant sects

2ND TENET: MAN CREATES HIS OWN ACTION

SOHAM murders (UK)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soham_murders

-people do horrendous and gruesome crimes
-they say ALLAH didn’t predestine anything and man creates his own actions

Dr. Harold Shipman killed 500 of his patients with lethal injections
-Shaikh in jail: some of the other said that the doctor was wonderful
-because it’s hard to look after old people
-that doctor killed a patient a month for over 25 years!

Dr. Harold Shipman http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Shipman

David Cameron said that the UK is a "sick" society

Myra Hindley http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moors_murders

Thomas Hamilton
-Hamilton was a pedophile
-he couldn’t approach children and had a restraining order
-he said that if he couldn’t have them , he prefers to kill them
-he killed 20 children

Thomas Hamilton http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunblane_massacre

James Bulger was killed by 2 nine years old children!!
-Shaikh couldn’t find a single masjid in UK that had the right Aqeeda
-the Talafis preach Darwinism in their masjid

James Bulger http://www.murderuk.com/child_killers_thompson_venables.html

Masjid in Leyton (UK) is teaching Darwinism
https://theislamicstandard.wordpress.com/tag/masjid-tawhid/

Abdur Raheem Green broke away from that Masjid
-due to disgust at the Talafis preaching Darwinism
-the Talafis (MADkhalis) are so deviant
-they are now preaching Darwinism in the masjid
-to say that man creates his own actions is wrong

When ibn Abbas heard that there are people who deny Qadr
-he said to take him to them so that he may cut off their noses
-and pluck out their eyes

...The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried." Reporters. Narrated by Tirmidhi, who said it is true and fine hadith.

-he also said not to pray over them nor to wash their bodies

THE 6 PILLARS OF EEMAN ARE TO BELIEVE IN:
1. ALLAH
2. HIS MESSENGER
3. HIS ANGELS
4. HIS PROPHETS
5. HIS QADR
6. THE DAY OF RESURRECTION

Narrated By Abu Huraira: One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, "What is faith?" Allah's Apostle replied, 'Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection." Then he further asked, "What is Islam?" Allah's Apostle replied, "To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan." Then he further asked, "What is Ihsan (perfection)?" Allah's Apostle replied, "To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that He is looking at you." Then he further asked, "When will the Hour be established?" Allah's Apostle replied, "The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents.

1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master. 2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except Allah. The Prophet then recited: "Verily, with Allah (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour..." (31. 34) Then that man (Gabriel) left and the Prophet asked his companions to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet said, "That was Gabriel who came to teach the people their religion." Abu 'Abdullah said: He (the Prophet) considered all that as a part of faith. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 2, Hadith #047]

Imam Malik said: “Whoever seeks the religion through Kalâm becomes a Zindeeq! And whoever seeks money [through alchemy] becomes bankrupt. And whoever seeks the strange narrations becomes a liar!” [Source: Abdallah al-Ansari, Damm al-Kalam wa-Ahlih 4:115 No.873]

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF QADR?


ALLAH's documentation of HIS knowledge
-the reason why they argue with Qadr is because they do not understand it
-first thing ALLAH created was the pen and ordered it to write
-ALLAH wrote down all things that were to be
-ALLAH gave everyone a freewill
-ALLAH knew that Abu Jahal and Abu Lahab would reject Islam
-it was written down
-but Abu Jahal & Abu Lahab had the choice
-they will be judged for their choices as they were free
-the Kuffar of Makkah were also Mu'tazilites
-they said to Rasulallah that they were Kuffar
-because ALLAH had willed for them to be Kuffar

Those who took partners (in worship) with Allah will say: "If Allah had willed, we would not have taken partners (in worship) with Him, nor would our fathers, and we would not have forbidden anything (against His Will)." Likewise belied those who were before them, (they argued falsely with Allah’s Messengers), till they tasted of Our Wrath. Say: "Have you any knowledge (proof) that you can produce before us? Verily, you follow nothing but guess and you do nothing but lie." (Al-An'am 6:148)

-the reason why they worshipped Lat & Uzzah was
-because they believe ALLAH had willed it for them
-the Kuffar of Makkah were Jabriyyah
-during the Khilafah of Umar (r.a.) a man stole
-Umar said his hand will not be cut off because there was famine
-the man said he stole because ALLAH had predestined for him to steal
-Umar said that if this was the case then
-it is predestined for his head to be chopped off as well
-the man got his hand chopped of for the stealing
-he received 30 lashes for having lied on ALLAH
-Qadr doesn’t mean that you are forced to commit the haraam
-but Qadr means that it was recorded with ALLAH
-you will be rewarded for the good deeds
-and punished for the bad deeds

SALMAN RUSHDIE: (authored) "THE SATANIC VERSES"
-www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Satanic_Verses
-whenever a man wants money, he insults ALLAH & HIS Rasul
-when he wants fame, he does likewise
-even the gora in UK spoke like the Kuffar of Makkah
-they said it was predestined for Salman Rushdie to write the book
-the book had insults on Rasulallah
-the kuffar have the same hearts and it doesn’t change with time
-ALLAH said so in Surah Baqarah

And those who have no knowledge say: "Why does not Allah speak to us (face to face) or why does not a sign come to us?" So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty. (Al-Baqarah 2:118)

...Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty. (Al-Baqarah 2:118)

Their hearts are alike (Al-Baqarah 2:118)


History repeats itself
-only Shaitan wants you to believe that history changes
-why do we study history in university?
-because history repeats itself, always
-there were gays at the time of Lut (a.s.)
-at the time of Shu'aib (a.s.) people cheated with scales
-people still cheat today
-when you understand "was," you'll understand "is"

ibn Abbas said do not pray nor wash the bodies of those they deny Qadr
-he said he would pluck out their eyes and cut off their noses
-when you get up for Fajr, ALLAH creates that action7
-but it is your decision to wake up for Fajr
-because you’re a free human being with a freewill
-and you shall be rewarded for your choice
-no one put a gun at your head to wake up for Fajr

(These Ayat were revealed about some members of my Ummah. They will come before the end of time and deny Al-Qadar.) Ata' bin Abi Rabah said, "I went to Ibn `Abbas and found him drawing water from the well of Zamzam. The bottom of his clothes was wet with the water of Zamzam and I said to him, `They talked about Al-Qadar (some denied it).' He asked, `Have they done this' I said, `Yes.' He said, `By Allah! This Ayah was revealed only about them, ("Taste you the touch of Hell!'' Verily, We have created all things with Qadar.) They are the worst members of this Ummah. Do not visit those who fall ill among them or pray the Funeral prayer for those among them who die. If I saw one of them, I would pluck out his eyes with these two fingers of mine.'' [Ibn Kathir agreed Tirmidhi]

Tawheed ar-Rububiyyah
-is nullified when you claim that actions are created by men

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

-when you claim that man creates actions, you are a pagan
-ALLAH is al-Khaliq and no one else is a creator besides HIM
-ALLAH created us and our actions

3RD TENET: THE PERPETRATOR OF A MAJOR SIN IS ON THE FENCE
-this Aqeeda is repulsive

ALLAH has divided mankind in 3 categories:
1: Muslim
2: Kaafir
3: Munafiqh

THE WORST BID'AH IS BID'AH IN REGARDS TO TAWHEED

Imam Abu Hanifa said that the greatest Fiqh is

-to learn the Tawheed of ALLAH and that is Fiqh al-Akbar
-you may come up with many labels
-but ALLAH has divided mankind into 3 categories and a 4th is not possible
-Wasil ibn Ataa came up with a fourth
-which was that if you commit a major sin, you are on the fence

Imam Hasan al-Basri kicked him out of his study circle
-heresy is contagious
-many come to PT and go to other deviant rooms and become CONFUSED.COM
-if you come to PT, come to a CLASSROOM, not a CHATROOM

**if you have self respect, you will not have your nick in a room where there are Munafiqeen

Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)

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)

4th TENET: THERE IS A CLASH BETWEEN the AQL and the NAQL

-you cannot sit in a room where the people mock Qur'an wa Sunnah
-some of us are found in the worst rooms on PT
-ALLAH said in Nisa:140 that we cannot sit amongst people who mock your Deen
-you may nullify you Shahadah by sitting with these people

aql - reason
naql - revelation

-they say if there is a clash that they give preference to the Aql

FABRICATED HADITH:
"The first thing that Allah created was the Intellect (Al 'Aql)"

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah said that it is Mowdoo' (fabricated). He said: " As for the first Hadeeth (creation of intellect) it is a lie, (ruled to be) fabricated by the scholars of knowledge and hadeeth, it is not in any of the book of Islam that are depended upon, rather it is narrated by the likes of Dawood bin Al Muhbir and his likes from those who authored about the intellect...." Majmoo'ul Fatawa: 18/336,337

FABRICATED HADITH

From this portion, He again created 4 more portions. From one He created the Intellect ('Aql), from the second portion Knowledge and Gentleness, from the third, Tawfiq (success). The fourth portion He stood before Him in the Station of Shyness (Maqam al Haya') for 12,000 years. After 12,000 years, Allah turned His glance upon this light. This look caused luminous beads of perspiration to appear upon it. From each of these 124,000 drops of light, Allah created the Spirit of a Prophet or Messenger. Then the Spirits of the Prophets exhaled. From this exhalation, Allah created all the Saints and the people who will be in perpetual happiness, the martyrs and those who are obedient from among the believers until the Day of Judgment. Sirr al-Asrar [tareej]

-the first thing ALLAH created was the pen not the Aql
-the Mu'tazilites love to quote that fabricated hadith
-they give preference to reason over revelation
-many of us think that the first Mu`tazilite was Wasil ibn Ataa;
-that is wrong
-the first Mu`tazilite was Shaitan_
-when he refused to bow down to Adam (a.s.)

ALLAH ordered Shaitan to bow down but he refused because he wasn’t intellectually convinced

Mu’tazilite Shaikh Zamakhshari: didn’t you read the Holy Qur’an?
-they do not give the tafseer of an ayah, rather they put a spin on it
-he used his Aql so much that he said that Shaitan was an angel!

And (remember) when We said to the angels; "Prostrate to Adam." So they prostrated except Iblis (Satan). He was one of the jinns; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblis) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an evil is the exchange for the Zalimûn (polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc). (Al-Kahf 18:50)

-he said so because when ALLAH said "they all bowed down except Iblis",
-he concluded that Shaitan was an angel
-Az-Zamakhshari didn’t know Qur'an

-we use 18:50 to checkmate Zamakhshari and all the Mu'tazilites
-ALLAH knew that some people will consider Iblis to be an angel
-therefore HE revealed 18:50 as Hujjah against their claim that Shaitan is an angel
-at-Thaqalayn: man & jinn
-they have freewill

Iblis was amongst the angels
-but he was a jinn and he had freewill and could rebel
-he did so when he didn’t bow down to Adam
-he was the first Mu’tazilite

O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded. (At-Tahrim 66:6)

Angels do not disobey the commandments of ALLAH

-they do as they are told by ALLAH
-Aqeeda of Mu'tazilites is dodgy
-according to 66:6, Iblis cannot be an angel
-knowledge makes you a lion
-you can tear anyone into pieces by using Qur’an wa Sunnah
-to learn Tawheed is Fiqh al-Akbar according to Abu Hanifa
-Madrasa Aqliyya
-they use Greek Philosophy

Our deen is not by logic: "'Ali observed, "If the religion was based on opinion, the bottom of the sock would take preference in being wiped to the top of the sock." (Related by Abu Dawud and ad-Daraqutni with a hassan or Sahih chain.)"

Ali ibn Abi Taalib said that our Deen is not based upon logic not opinion

(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)


-he argued with ALLAH that he was better than Adam
-because he was created from fire while Adam was created with clay
-not only was he the first rationalist, he was also the first racist in history!
-Iblis used his Aql and gave it preference to the commandment of ALLAH

The second Mu`tazilite in History: the son of Nuh (a.s.)
-he thought that a mountain would save him from the punishment (the flood) of ALLAH
-his Aql didn’t save him from the Wrath of ALLAH, he died in that flood

WHEN WE URINATE OR HAVE INTIMACY
-we learn from hadith:
-we're to make wudu
-women can have a discharge easily even from excitement over watching sports games
-if she has an orgasm, she must make ghusl
-when a person gets excited by watching a soccer game and has a discharge,
-they must make wu`du
-there's 2 types of discharge for women
-this discharge is minor; for minor discharge, wu`du is required
-major discharge requires ghusl
-the sperm is pure; urine is impure
-but we make ghusl for major discharge and wu`du for urine,
-that is because our Deen is not based on logic
-women are weak; men are strong
-a woman gets half of the share that a man gets
-when it comes to sharing the inheritance

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The angel of death was sent to Moses and when he went to him, Moses slapped him severely, spoiling one of his eyes. The angel went back to his Lord, and said, "You sent me to a slave who does not want to die." Allah restored his eye and said, "Go back and tell him (i.e. Moses) to place his hand over the back of an ox, for he will be allowed to live for a number of years equal to the number of hairs coming under his hand." (So the angel came to him and told him the same). Then Moses asked, "O my Lord! What will be then?" He said, "Death will be then." He said, "(Let it be) now." He asked Allah that He bring him near the Sacred Land at a distance of a stone's throw. Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, "Were I there I would show you the grave of Moses by the way near the red sand hill." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith #423]

-they cannot believe that man could knock out the angel of death
-the angel came to Musa in the form of a man and not in the original form
-there are many Ahadith in Bukhari that they reject
-because their Aql cannot accept it

Narrated By Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, '(There is) no 'Adwa (no contagious disease is conveyed without Allah's permission) nor is there any bad omen (from birds), nor is there any Hamah, nor is there any bad omen in the month of Safar, and one should run away from the leper as one runs away from a lion." Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 71. Medicine. Hadith 615.

-no disease is contagious, this hadith means that no disease can catch us
-if it’s not by the will of ALLAH

5th TENET: QUR'AN WAS CREATED

from Alee bin al-Hasan al-Kuraa'ee who said: Abu Yusuf said: I debated Abu Hanifah for six months, and then our view became united that the one who said the Qur'an is created is a kaafir. [Adh-Dhahabee brings with a good (jayyid) chain of narration, as occurs in Mukhtasar al-Uluww (p. 155)]

Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) till you follow their religion. Say: "Verily, the Guidance of Allah (i.e. Islamic Monotheism) that is the (only) Guidance And if you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) were to follow their (Jews and Christians) desires after what you have received of Knowledge (i.e. the Qur’an), then you would have against Allah neither any Wal? (protector or guardian) nor any helper. (Al-Baqarah 2:120)


We believe that the Qur'an
-was revealed and it is part of HIS Knowledge
-and ALLAH does not create HIS Names or Attributes

And if you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) were to follow their (Jews and Christians) desires after what you have received of Knowledge (i.e. the Qur’an), then you would have against Allah neither any Wal? (protector or guardian) nor any helper. (Al-Baqarah 2:120)

Quran is the Knowledge of ALLAH and is part of HIS Names & Attributes, Hujjah is 2:120


-to say that the Quran was created will make a person a kaafir

Ma'moon
-because he did jihad and he enforced Shariah and he practiced al walaa wal baraa
-Ma’moon believed that Quran was created (a Mu`tazilite),
-why didn’t Imam Ahmed make takfeer on him?
-Making takfeer on Ma’moon would have created more fitna,
-so Imam Ahmed didn’t make takfir on Ma’moon

6th TENET: THEY DENY AHADITH THAT ARE AAHAAD
-if the hadith is aahaad, they will never take it into their Aqeeda

2 types of Hujjah

1: dhannee=doubtful
2: Qat`ee: certain


-they claim that if the hadith is aahaad, that means only one Sahabi
-saw or heard it from Rasulallah
-they will use that hadith for Fiqh but not Aqeeda
-they use only Ahadith that are Mutawaatir (widespread)
-they claim that hadith aahaad are too weak
-and they need to be certain when it comes to Aqeeda

Let’s flush their Aqeeda down the drain

1: Hadith of Umar

-a man said he will make hijrah to Madina for marriage

Narrated By 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for." Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 1. Revelation. Hadith 001

-he wanted to find a woman to marry
-he made hijrah (for the sake of the girl [fi sabili girl]
-not fi sabilillah [for the sake of Allah]
-as the rest of the Sahabi did
-Wagonist (Opportunist)

When Rasulallah found out that a man was a Wagonist,
-he told to Umar (and no one else) that actions are by intentions
-and every man shall have what he migrated for

I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, say: "Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

-he man found a woman and her name was Umm Qais
-he was called `Muhajir Umm Qais`
-this hadith is ahahh

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

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]

Sahabah prayed facing Jerusalem
and one Sahabi was told
-by Rasulallah to turn to Makkah as their new Qibla
-in Hanbali Fiqh we can take the testimony of one woman


THE KNOCK OUT PUNCH when giving dawah to the Mu’tazila:

Mu’adh ibn Jabal was sent to Yemen by Rasulallah


"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 people of Yemen did not say to Mu’adh go back
-because we cannot learn from one man
-we need 10 Sahabah
-No!
-the people of Yemen took Deen from Mu’adh ibn Jabal
