Bismillah...

We covered HOW TO BE SINCERE TO ALLAH
-we needed 13 conditions to be sincere and can not miss 1 condition
-we saw 4:145 for hujjah
-hypocrisy is the opposite of sincerity

Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. (An-Nisa 4:145)

-Hasan al Basri said we should fear hypocrisy
- anyone who is not afraid to be a hypocrite, is a hypocrite.

13 CONDITIONS TO BE SINCERE TO THE HOLY QUR'AN

1. WE NEED TO BELIEVE THAT THE QUR'AN KALAM ULLAH

-Allah's speech is not created but revealed

The 4 great Imams made takfir [calling some a kaafir]
-on those who said the Qur'an was created

Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an in order that you may understand. (Yusuf 12:2)

And if anyone of the Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) seeks your protection then grant him protection, so that he may hear the Word of Allah (the Qur'an), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not. (At-Tawbah 9:6)

Imam Shafi (rahimaullah) said, ”Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir” Masail Abu Dawood Pg 262, sanad is Saheeh

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said,” Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir; do not say salam to him, neither pray behind him nor sit with him.” Masail ibn Hani Pg 154 Vol.2 fekrah 1863

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)]

Imam Shafi'i
said whoever said the Qur'an was created is a kaafir
-and do not give them salaam or pray behind them
-Ibn Hanbal agreed
-Abu Yusuf debated w/ Abu Hanifa for 6 months on this manner

The Qur'an was written easily for us to remember

And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (Al-Qamar 54:17)

-it was revealed in a rhythmic form
-it is the only religious book memorized by people
-(and Asians have the most hafeez)
-they are fervent in their love of the Qur'an
-they do not place it on the ground
-they put no other books on it
-they fervently love this book

2. WE NEED TO BELIEVE THAT THE QUR'AN IS FREE FROM CORRUPTION and HUMAN INTERFERENCE

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

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


-we need to shun the aqeeda of the Shiites who say it is corrupted
-if you believe the Qur'an is corrupted, you're not a Muslim

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)

-we're not to give salaam to anyone who believes the Qur'an is corrupted
-they can't enter Makkah or Madina or are we to wash their body
-we're to treat them as a kaafir
-we can't reply to their salaam or eat their slaughtering
-they can't inherit our property
-we can't pray janaza over them or bury them in graveyard of the Muslims

3. WE NEED TO CONTEMPLATE ON THE MEANING OF THE QUR'AN

Do they not then think deeply in the Qur'an, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)? (Muhammad 47:24)


-when a person's heart is sealed, hypocrisy never comes out and eeman doesn't enter
-Allah seals their heart after they hear His guidance

So when they turned away (from the Path of Allah), Allah turned their hearts away (from the Right Path). And Allah guides not the people who are Fasiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (As-Saff 61:5)

4. WE MUST BELIEVE THAT THE QUR'AN DOES NOT CONTRADICT THE QUR'AN

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein many contradictions. (An-Nisa 4:82)


-but we have not found any contradictions because ALLAH authored it
-but the Bible has contradictions

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19) King James Version

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (Genesis 6:6) King James Version


1 - God doesn't repent but in Gen 6:6 it says God repented - this is a contradiction
2 - we do not have these contradictions in the Holy Qur'an
-this is embarrassing for the Christians
-to find these contradictions in their book
-we have many more contradictions
-but we're only mentioning that 1 for now
-when we read 2 verses in the Qur'an
-that we THINK are contradicting, go to a scholar for tafseer
-because we have no contradictions and if you're weak in eeman,
-you will visit those corrupted websites
-they are designed to make you apostate
-Allah does not author such things as when a girl commits zina,
-put her under house arrest
-but then it says to give them 100 lashes
-but these are NOT contradictions

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)

-one verse abrogated the other [4:15 was first then we have the abrogating verse]

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, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law). (An-Nur 24:2)

ALLAH IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION

-so when you read something confusing, know it was not authored by Allah

In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allah has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies. (Al-Baqarah 2:10)

-those who doubt the sincerity of the Qur'an, believe other falsehoods
-they set up websites hoping to weaken our eeman and upset our deen
-Shaikh speaks to them in private about these matters
-they ask why a hand is cut off for a thief [Shariah law] ...
-they ask and ask
-they want to know why we get involved w/ homos-xuals
-who want to have zina w/ each other
-zina = s-x outside of marriage
-when we live in darul harb, it's easy for us to have doubts
-so if you're weak, go live in a Muslim society
-because the gora is seeking souls for the hellfire

5. WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT THE QUR'AN ON THE INDIVIDUAL LEVEL

He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism), and teaching them the Book (this Qur'an, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad SAW). And verily, they had been before in manifest error; (Al-Jumu'ah 62:2)

WHY WERE THE SAHABAHS
PURIFIED FROM SHIRK AND other diseases of the heart?
-they made the Qur'an personal to them
-khatam is a bid'ah
-Barelvis are Hindus
-Shiites are Jews, Soofis are Christian and all
-did not come into Islam whole-heartedly
-the Talafis hide behind their beard and Arabic words but they are zindeeq [heretics]

Reciting Qur'an over these people is a bid'ah
-khatam is a bid'ah - to benefit from the Qur'an PRACTICE IT
-these people we mentioned have dodgy aqeeda
-some are racist, tribalistic, socialist and w/o aqeeda of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamm'ah
-the Qur'an is to benefit those of us that are alive

That he or it (Muhammad SAW or the Qur'an) may give warning to him who is living (a healthy minded the believer), and that Word (charge) may be justified against the disbelievers (dead, as they reject the warnings). (Ya-Sin 36:70)

-we're not to wear the Qur'an around our neck for protection; this is minor shirk

The life of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) has been said by his wife, Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) to be like "a walking Qur’an" embodying the Laws of Almighty Allah (subhaana wa taalah).

-we're not to take a short-cut w/ the Qur'an by wearing it instead of PRACTICING IT

And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character. (Al-Qalam 68:4)

The holy Prophet has stated the foremost purpose of his being sent down in this world and the method of his call to the people in these words: "I have been sent only for the purpose of perfecting good morals." (Al-Muwatta of Imam Malik)


-hadith says the best gift we can give our children is GOOD CHARACTER

"No father can give his children a better gift than good manners." [Tirmidhi)

Narrated Abu Darda: The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “There is nothing heavier upon the scale of a believer (on the Day of Judgment) than good character.” [Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 4781]

Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said, "The heaviest thing to be placed in the balance of a believing slave on the Day of Judgment will be good behaviour." (At-Tirmidhi).


-you can see Shaikh brings hadith and Qur'an to back up EVERYTHING HE SAYS

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “Two characteristics cannot combine in a hypocrite: good character and an understanding of religion.” [Reported by Tirmidhi 2693]

-hypocrites will never have knowledge of Islam or a good character

And among them are some who listen to you (O Muhammad SAW) till, when they go out from you, they say to those who have received knowledge: "What has he said just now? Such are men whose hearts Allah has sealed, and they follow their lusts (evil desires). (Muhammad 47:16)

-the munafiqoon would listen to the Prophet in the masjid and afterward,
-they would ask WHAT DID HE SAY?
-but they were in the same study circle!
-these listen but they don't hear; their hearts are sealed

It is the same as listening in dars and then asking, what did Shaikh say?
-munafiqhs are like a rock - their hearts are hard and they can not learn
-they hear hadith but can't memorize it

Why is divorce so high among Muslims?
-because they are evil in character
-their divorce is as high as among the kuffaar

6. WE MUST BELIEVE IN ALL OF IT AND IMPLEMENT ALL OF THE QUR'AN

THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF MUSLIMS

-those who live BY the deen and those who live OFF it
-believers live BY it
-munafiqhs live off it

In Birmingham, UK, there are Talafi masjids
-one imam starved their child to death
-a Muslim will ask for zakah to help support his 2 wives ...
-so he believes in polygamy and zakah but not in jihad
-these are the ones who spy against the mujahideen
-these believe in some part of al Qur'an but reject others
-they are opportunists

Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. (Al-Baqarah 2:85)

CHILD STARVED TO DEATH IN BIRMINGHAM, UK:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1298006/Social-workers-lost-sight-Khyra-Ishaq-7-starved-death.html

Divorcing ... you can divorce a wife, you can go to bed
-w/ her IF YOU INTENDED to take her back
-but if your intention is for jim3aa or s-x, it is haraam
-so remember to implement ALL of the Qur'an not part of it
-see 2:216 [jihad is prescribed for us] though we might dislike it
-same thing for fasting, 2:183

Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know. (Al-Baqarah 2:216)

O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). (Al-Baqarah 2:183)

7. WE NEED TO IMPLEMENT THE QUR'AN ON THE STATE LEVEL

-the individual level is not enough
-ISLAM is a State
-one day, we might go to a masjid where Imam is giving
-khutbah on alcohol and he quotes hadeeth on alcohol
-one says if we drink wine in dunya, we wont drink it in Paradise
-another hadeeth says 10 people are cursed ...

Abdullah ibn Umar reports that the Prophet said, "Whosoever drinks wine, Allah will not accept his prayer for 40 days. If he seeks repentance Allah will forgive him. And if he repeats it Allah will not accept his prayer for 40 days. If he seeks repentance Allah will forgive him. And if he repeats it again Allah will not accept his prayer for 40 days. If he seeks repentance Allah will forgive him. If he repeats it for the fourth time Allah will not accept his prayer for 40 days. If he seeks repentance Allah will not accept it and he will be made to drink from the river of impurities (of the inmates of hell). (Tirmidhi, Nasai, Ibn Majah and Daarami from Ibn Amr)

-and then we leave the masjid and say Alhumdulillah,
-there were 10 hadeeth about wine
-but the Imam only diagnosed the problem not give you
-the solution which is to:

1. topple apostate regime
2. closed down the wine places
3. implement Shariah

If a doctor tells you
that you have diabetes
-but he doesn't tell you what tablets to take or how to control it
-what good is that?
-all he did was tell you what's wrong now how to solve it
-a good Imam will provide solutions for us - w/ hujjah

Munafiqhs will say "we will allow pork in our hotels for the tourists
-so keep Qur'an outside the ministries in the government:
1 finance
2 agriculture
3 information

Secularists separate ISLAM from politics

-to dismantle the Shariah is MAJOR KUFR
-you become a kaafir if you believe this
-you're against the ijmaa of the ummah

Ibn Taymiyyah said: And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Sharia other than the Sharia of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it. Majmua Al-Fataawa: Vol 28, p. 524.

Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His messenger (SAW). Whoever does this is a Kaafir who must be fought until he returns to the rule of Allah and His messenger. So no one other than He should rule neither minorly or majorly". Tafseer Ibn Kathir, Vol 2, p.67


-then his student, Ibn Kathir said you're a kaafir
-and you should be FOUGHT till they return to ISLAM
-munafiqhs say to think about YOURSELF, forget the Shariah
-these are the same who call the mujahideen "terrorists"
-we call them MADkhalis because they are mad

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination. (An-Nisa 4:115)

Muhammad Ibrahim [the shaikh of bin Baaz] said in page 6 of his book Tahkeem al Qawaneen: "Tawheed haakimiyya is the twin half of tawheed Ibaada."

These same will say Tawheed Haakimiyyah is a bid'ah

-but it is the twin half brother of tawheed ibaadah

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (Sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. (Adwa' al-Bayan, 7:162)

-the man who goes to the kaafir courthouse for judgment is a pagan ....

Have you seen those (hypocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgment (in their disputes) to the Taghoot (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitan (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray. (An-Nisa 4:60)

-if you say you follow Ibn Kathir and Ibn Taymiyyah
-but you don't believe in separating self from kaafir judgment,
-you're a kaafir

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) 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

8. WE NEED TO PRONOUNCE IT PROPERLY WHEN WE RECITE IT

-Surah Fatiha must be recited in Arabic; we're not recite it in our own language

Narrated By 'Ubada bin As-Samit: Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever does not recite Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 12, Hadith #723]

and recite the Qur'an (aloud) in a slow, (pleasant tone and) style. (Al-Muzzammil 73:4


-in university, Shaikh's shaikhs were upset if he ever pronounced a word improper
-we can't pray behind someone who doesn't recite Surah Fatiha properly

9. WE NEED TO LEARN THE PROPER TAFSEER OF THE QUR'AN FROM A PROPER TRANSLATION BY A SINCERE SCHOLAR

-do we go to the chatrooms of the Shiites to learn their translations? NO!
-if we do, we're munafiqhs

Verily, Allah commands you that you slaughter a cow.(Al-Baqarah 2:67)

-in Baqarah, the Shiites say the "cow" is Aisha (r.a.)

CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT - so this can happen when we go to munafiqoon rooms

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)


If you are NOT convinced about the deen, you will go to Shia chatrooms
-these rooms are set up by kuffaar and the lock your IP and these people in the room
-will give YOUR name
-and then they are incarcerated and their wives come here
-begging for money for their family
-they think controversy sells
-a CALL FOR JIHAD IN THE USA or UK are rooms set up by young, stupid men
-young men are a loose cannon
-our ummah will be destroyed by young stupid men

O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al¬Ansab, 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)

-the munafiqhs, such as Shia say the cow is Aisha (r.a.) and the khamar is Mu’awiyah
-go to scholars who give proper tafseers w/ hujjah

LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE - see notes on THE 13 LAWS OF NATURE

10. WE MUST BELIEVE THE QUR'AN ABROGATES THE PREVIOUS BOOKS

-it is a FINAL revelation
-if it were halal to bow down to another, Muhammad (saws)
-would have made women bow down to husbands!

If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah. [Hadith: Sunan Abu Dawud, 11:2135]

And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves before Adam."(Al-Baqarah 2:34)

Men don't want the responsibility of looking after wives

-pay for them, take care of kids, financially and such
-then have to satisfy the wife's sensual needs
-men are always sweating

MUSLIM GIRLS CAN NOT MARRY KAAFIR MEN
-that was Musa's Shariah, not Muhammad's
-Shariah of ADAM was to bow down to a man but not in Muhammad's Shariah

Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means.(An-Nisa 4:34)

`Umar -- Allah be well-pleased with him -- came to the Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- and said: "We hear from the Jews narrations that impress us, do you think we should write down some of them?" The Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- replied: "Are you all going to fall into the same chaos (amutahawwikun) in which fell the Jews and Christians?

I brought it [the Religion] to you pristine and pure. If Musa were alive, he would have no alternative but to follow me!" Narrated from Jabir by al-Bayhaqi in Shu`ab al-Iman (1:200) and mursal from al-Hasan by al-Khatib in al-Jami` li Akhlaq al-Rawi (1991 ed. 2:228 #1531=1983 ed. 2:161)

11. WE MUST READ THE ENTIRE QUR'AN AT LEAST ONCE IN OUR LIFETIME

12. WHEN THE QUR'AN IS RECITED, WE MUST BE QUIET AND LISTEN

So, when the Qur'an is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy. [i.e. during the compulsory congregational prayers when the Imam (of a mosque) is leading the prayer (except Sûrat Al-Fatiha), and also when he is delivering the Friday-prayer Khutbah]. [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol.9, Pages 162-4] (Al-A'raf 7:204)

13. YOU NEED TO FOLLOW THE MANHAJ OF THE HOLY QUR'AN

1 we call to tawheed in darul harb
2 we call to Shariah in darul Islam


Makkan surahs [tawheed] and Medinan surahs [Shariah]

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]

1. INVITE TO TAWHEED
... la ilaha illallah
-do not invite kaafir to Shariah
-if this is not your manhaj, you're a deviant
