Shaikh Faisal’s Position on Covenant of Security & Calling for Shariah in Darul Harb
(excerpts from evening dars on 10.26.11)
QUESTION : Omar Bakri believes and preaches Covenant of Security, he has a three hour lecture on it, have you ever spoke to him?
-We take our deen from the classical scholars
-also the Mujahideen have released a statement
-refuting the covenant of security and no one in their right mind will believe in it:
http://theunjustmedia.com/Islamic Perspectives/May 08/Concerning Al Aqd Al Amaan Covenants of Security.htm
-only a Munafiq who does not want to make Jihad believes in the covenant of security
-they want to march, they don’t want to go to the battlefield
-they want to march, scream and shout in front of an embassy
-then go home, eat fish and chips and say: “Today I did something for Islam”
ONLY A MUNAFIQ BELIEVES IN THE COVENANT OF SECURITY
People who believe in the Covenant of Security also call for Shariah in Darul Harb!
-you are not allowed to call for Shariah in Darul Harb
-you call to Tawheed in Darul Harb
-their Manhaj is messed up, big time!
-in the UK, people don’t believe God exists, how can you call them to Shariah?!
-you call them to Tawheed, that is the Sunnah of Allah
Allah Revealed Surah’s of Tawheed in Makkah
-when they migrated to Medina, then Allah revealed Shariah
-things like Hajj, Ramadan, Jihad etc, they were all revealed in Darul Islam (Medina)
-Allah called for Tawheed in Darul Harb
-so when you do the opposite, you are going against the Manhaj of Allah!
Take Your Aqeedah From The Mujahideen
-they released a statement condemning the Aqeedah of Covenant of Security
-take your Aqeedah from the Mujahideen because they are called al-Ta’ifah al-Mansurah (the aided and victorious group)
-do not take your Aqeedah from the people who do not love the Mujahideen
QUESTION : Can we take Knowledge from Omar Bakri?
-you can take the good from him, but you can not take the covenant of security and the Manhaj to call for Shariah in Darul Harb from him
-there is ijma3 among the 4 great Imams, you are not allowed to call for Shariah in Darul Harb
-when people call for Shariah in Darul Harb, it is called a publicity stunt; a media stunt, that’s all it is!
-some people like to be in the camera, so they become controversial to be on camera!
-its all a media stunt because the 4 great Imams said you are not allowed to call for Shariah in Darul Harb
-in the UK, people don’t believe God exists, how can you invite them to Shariah?!
-don’t you know Abu Hanifa said Tawheed is Fiqh Al Akbar (the greatest fiqh)
-why do you think Abu Hanifa said its Fiqh Al Akbar? because it is the foundation!
-if you’re building a skyscraper, you need a strong foundation, if not, it will topple!
THE FOUNDATION IS TAWHEED
-why do you think the Prophet (SAW) spend 13 years in Makkah teaching the Sahabah Tawheed?
-because it is the foundation and without the foundation everything will fall down!
-so when you want to spread Islam in Darul Harb, you invite the people to Allah
-when they believe in Allah, then you invite them to Shariah
-you need Tawheed Rububiyyah before Tawheed Hakimiyyah
-when Prophet Yusuf (AS) was in prison, he taught the people
-Tawheed Rububiyyah, that Allah is the Only Rab (Lord and Creator) first
-then he taught them Tawheed Hakimiyyah
-that is the Manhaj of all the Prophets
There is no classical scholar past or present, who believes in the Covenant of Security
-those who believe in the Covenant of Security, they are self-taught
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]
-why can’t people accept this hadith? and stop calling for Shariah in Darul Harb
-do you mean to have such pride and arrogance that you can’t surrender to the hujjah?
QUESTION : Can Muslims call for Shariah within the Muslim community?
-it is better you establish organisations for Shariah in Pakistan, Shariah for Saudi Arabia, Shariah for Egypt, Shariah for Nigeria, Shariah for Algeria etc
Take the Shariah to the People Who Want It
-didn’t you see when the Muslims were given the chance to vote in Algeria they voted for Shariah
-The Islamic Salvation Front, they won a landslide victory
-the people voted for Shariah in Algeria, take the Shariah to people who want it
Don’t take Shariah to people in America and Europe, who are Confused.com
-they are not sure if they are straight or gay
-they are not sure if God exists, they are confused about their spirituality
-they are the lowest of the low
-take the Shariah to people who want it
Shaikh was in Nigeria
-they implemented Shariah in Northern Nigeria
-they chopped off the hand of a cow thief
-then people stopped stealing cow, it sent a shockwave in the community
take the Shariah to people who want it
-can’t you see when the Muslims are given a choice, they vote for Shariah!
-when you take Shariah to Darul Harb (Americans and Europeans), you are throwing silver and gold to swine
-they have no use for silver and gold
-these people cheat on their wives with men! not with women, but men! they are confused.com
-why can’t you swallow your pride and embrace the hujjah?
-The Prophet (SAW) did not say to Muadh, to tell the people in Yemen to stop eating pork
-stop drinking alcohol, stop fornicating, stop dealing in Riba (interest) etc
- He (SAW) said to invite the people to Tawheed
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. …" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith #469]
Shaikh’s Sincere Advice:
-you need to swallow your pride and accept the hujjah and stop arguing
-and say “we got it wrong, our Manhaj was wrong, we’ll turn around and invite the people to Allah and when they believe in Allah, then we’ll invite them to Shariah”
...When the people embraced Islam, the Verses regarding legal and illegal things were revealed. If the first thing to be revealed was: 'Do not drink alcoholic drinks.' people would have said, 'We will never leave alcoholic drinks,' and if there had been revealed, 'Do not commit illegal sexual intercourse, 'they would have said, 'We will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.'...[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 61, Hadith #515]
-put your hand up and admit to the Ummah you got it wrong
-we are not allowed to call for Shariah in Darul Harb
-in Darul Harb we call to Tawheed
-the Surahs in the Quran are two types, Makki and Madani
-the Surah's revealed in Makkah call to Tawheed
Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allāh, (the) One. (Al-Ikhlas 112:1)
"Allāh-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)
when they migrated to Medina and establish the Islamic State, then Allah called to Shariah
QUESTION : Omar Bakri's students say they calling tawheed hakimiyyah which is same as sharia
-to refute this, tell Omar Bakri’s students about the story of Prophet Yusuf (AS)
-when he was in prison he called the people to
-Tawheed Rububiyyah first,
-then Tawheed Asmaa was Sifaat
-then Tawheed Hakimiyyah
"O two companions of the prison! Are many different lords (gods) better or Allāh, the One, the Irresistible? (Yusuf 12:39)
"You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged), you and your fathers, for which Allāh has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allāh. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism), that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not. (Yusuf 12:40)
-that is the Manhaj of Allah and all the Prophets
-this is the refutation for those that put the cart before the horse
-by calling for Shariah before they call for Tawheed
-the Quran is against them
-the Sunnah is against them
-and the Seerah of Muhammad (SAW) is against them!
-you shouldn’t go to rooms that turn you into confused.com
-some of you are not knowledgeable enough to debate
-you don’t have skilful debating skills
-your ability to debate is limited
