Abdul Hadee - The Ummah Is Not Dead

“The Ummah is not Dead” by Ustad Abdul Hadee



Allah has blessed the ummah of rasul (saw)
--He gave us great people like Abu-Bakr, Omar, and Imam Anwar etc.
--why is it that these people do what they do
--this is because Allah said in His Qur’an;

And who is better in speech than he who [says: "My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness)," and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allah's (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims." (Fussilat 41:33)

We have seen that not only are the kuffar attacking us or occupying our land
--they are imprisoning and killing our scholars
--But the only regret these scholars have is that
--Allah did not take more of their flesh for His sake
--we have many Munāfiqûn who call for occupation of our land

(Sayyidina Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (RA) was asked to explain the verse: Think not of those who were slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they are alive. (3:169) He said, “Indeed we had asked about that and were informed that their souls are in green birds that go wherever they like in Paradise and return to the lamps suspended from the Throne. Your Lord looks at them out of familiarity and asks, ‘Do you desire anything more that I may give more?’ They say, ‘Our Lords what more may we seek while we are in Paradise moving about wherever we will?’ He then looks at them a second time, saying, ‘Do you desire Me to add something for you that I should give more?’ When they see that thay will not be spared (till they ask), they desire, ‘Return our souls to our bodies that we may go back to earth and be slain in Your path once more.." [Muslim 4651, Abu Dawud 2514, Tirmidhi 3022, Ibn e Majah 2800]

They have gathered together against the ummah of haqq
--Allah said the kuffar will never be satisfied with us until we apostate from our deen
--and follow them
--we see the kuffar gather together to attack and assassinate Imam Awlaki
--because he was someone who called to Allah
--because he had the correct manhaj

Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ) till you follow their religion....(Al-Baqarah 2:120)

We have 2 types of scholars

1. Those that call to the truth and are proud to call to it and its civilization
--they are never apologetic to this
--this is how we are supposed to be with our niqab and beard etc.
--they don’t appease the kuffar and they are proud of their deen

--the kuffar attack our deen and our RASUL (saw)
--but we are proud and not ashamed of our RASUL (saw)

Others say to us ‘in your religion it calls for terrorism and killing people’
--‘it calls to marrying many wives’
--we say to them you liars- we are implementing Allah’s ruling on earth
--we say yes because it is Allah that sent it and it is protecting us
--from all your filthy vices you are suffering from
--whichever aspect of our deen we should never be ashamed to accept it in front of the kuffar

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

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

2. Those that are full of pride and are ashamed of their deen
--these people will tell you piety is in the heart and not manifested

--they are lying emaan is both in the heart and manifestation by actions
--they are people of humiliation because they are ashamed of their ulama

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Iman has some sixty or seventy branches, the best of which is the declaration that, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, and the least of which is the removal of harmful objects from the road, and modesty is a branch of Iman.” [Sahih Bukhari]

And on the authority of Wabisa bin Mabad, may Allah be pleased with him, who said: I came to the messenger of Allah and he said: "You have come to ask about righteousness?”. I said:" Yes." He said: "Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels tranquil and the heart feels tranquil, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and moves to and from in the breast even though people again and again have given you their legal opinion [in its favor]." [Ahmed and Al-Darimi, with a good chain of authorities]

--we need to realize that there is a conflict
--they have betrayed us in many aspects like free mixing, imitating the kuffar,
--following UN resolutions and going to the clubs etc.

But we have to realize that the rasul (saw) never gave up to the kuffar, he never appeased them

Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)to these Mushrikûn and Kafirûn): "O Al-Kafirûn (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His Angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadar, etc.)! (Al-Kafirun 109:1)

"I worship not that which you worship, (Al-Kafirun 109:2)

"Nor will you worship that which I worship. (Al-Kafirun 109:3)

"And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping. (Al-Kafirun 109:4)

"Nor will you worship that which I worship. (Al-Kafirun 109:5)

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

--the first thing the kuffar did was to kill 1800 ulama
--and the people that involved in their tariika never came out to defend these people
--the scholars are those that follow the rasul (saw)'s path
--the ulama of haqq never followed the kuffar but they called man
--from the darkness of kufr to the nur of Islam
--that is why most of our scholars are imprisoned or killed

“The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.” [Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, Ibn Maja, Ahmad, Ibn Hibban]

We lost Sheikh Anwar Awlaki and tomorrow it may be others
--because all these people call to the haqq and only the haqq
--and yet we are not ready to protect our ulama
--Prophet Yahya (as) was killed for the same purpose
--we have to pray and support our ulama

Sayyidina Abdullah ibn Amr ibn Al-Aas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Allah will not take away knowledge from the people all at once. But, he will take away knowledge by taking away the ulama (one by one) till no scholar survives. The people will take the ignorant for leaders and will ask them and they will issue verdicts without knowledge, going astray (themselves) and leading (others) astray.” [Ahmed 6521, Bukhari 100, Muslim 2673, Tirmidhi 2661, Ibn e Majah 52]

The rasul (saw) said the believers are one and supporters of each other

The Messenger of Allah (saw) also said, "The believers, in their love, mutual kindness, and close ties, are like one body; when any part complains, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever." [Muslim]

The believers, men and women, are Auliyā' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism and all that Islām orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islām has forbidden);... (At-Tawbah 9:71)

"Whoever relieves a calamity that has struck a believer in this world, Allah will relieve for him one of the calamities of the day of Judgement, and whoever makes things easy for a person in trouble, Allah will make his matters easy in this life and in the hereafter, and whoever shields the faults of a Muslim, Allah will shield his faults in this world and the hereafter, and Allah will help and support his servant as long as he is helping and supporting his brother" (Sahih Muslim)

The muhaajiroon and the ansar were together and Allah was pleased with them (fighters and helpers)
--we need to protect our ulama from any false allegation by the kuffar
--the people of the siddiqoon are the mujahedeen
--they leave their wealth and property and go in the path of Allah
--they are exiled, imprisoned as a result of these
--in light of recent events we have seen the treachery of the kuffar
--and how far they can go to kill an innocent man
--they violate human rights even though they say that’s what they call to
--enough is enough we have to propagate the message of truth
--that our ulama preach and we need to help them
-- So that they will not be thinking who will take care of my family?

Allah said if you help Him He will help you
--and you help Allah by helping the Muslims and the ulama

O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allah, He will help you, and make your foothold firm. (Muhammad 47:7)

--these are the best of deeds
--all these things happening mean that the nice breeze of sharia is coming
--after all the prosecutions of the people of the past e.g. Musa (as), victory came
--and we can see that coming
--Allah's victory is coming insha Allah
--they have killed Osama Bin Laden and many other ulama but the victory is coming

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)

Allah said the end belongs to the muttaqeen
--we need to prepare ourselves
--who is going to be the next Imam Anwar and Said qutub?
--this is the ummah of khair and the best nation
--we are the ummah that will be a witness against the other ummahs
--we need to prepare ourselves to be the next to come out and speak the truth
--despite what the kuffar will be doing
--we need to look at ourselves as those who will take 10fold from them when they take 1 from us
--we do not care about the Mushrikûn and the Munāfiqûn

Thus We have made you [true Muslims - real believers of Islāmic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a Wasat (just) (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad) be a witness over you... (Al-Baqarah 2:143)

Our religion will prevail as promised by Allah

It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it). (At-Tawbah 9:33)

We need to follow RASUL (saw)
--we ask Allah to take from us everything to use it to take His deen to the highest
--we pray Allah makes us taste what Sumaiya and the others tasted
--history will not remember Obama but Anwar Awlaki
--they are the people who gave themselves to Allah
--when Mus'ab Ibn Umair came and told rasul (saw) that he will call to the deen
--his da’wah reached all his people
--Allah said in surah Asr that by time everybody is lost except those that believe and act upon it and are patient

By Al-'Asr (the time). (Al-'Asr 103:1)

Verily! Man is in loss, (Al-'Asr 103:2)

Except those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al-Ma'rûf)which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds (Al-Munkar)which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings, harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allah's Cause during preaching His religion of Islamic Monotheism or Jihad, etc.). (Al-'Asr 103:3)

Allah is our maula and the kuffar have no maula

That is because Allah is the Maula (Lord, Master, Helper, Protector, etc.) of those who believe, and the disbelievers have no Maula (lord, master, helper, protector, etc.). (Muhammad 47:11)
