Bismillah

One day the Rasul (peace be upon him) was with the Companions

-and he said the deen is sincerity
-they asked him to whom should we be
-he said to Allah, his messenger and the ummah
-so today we will cover 10 points today on how to be sincere to the ummah

Abû Ruqayyah Tamîm b. `Aws al-Dârî relates that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Religion is Sincerity.” We asked: “To whom, O Messenger of Allah?” He said: “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and the leaders of the Muslims and to the common Muslim.” [Sahîh Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #98]

In order for you to be sincere to your Muslim Brothers and Sisters,
-20 conditions have to be found.

1. YOU SHOULD LOVE THEM REGARDLESS OF LAND, LANGUAGE OR LABEL
-you are not allowed to discriminate against them on grounds of
-nationalism, tribalism or isms and schisms.

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islamic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allah, that you may receive mercy. (Al-Hujurat 49:10)

- since we are brothers, the brotherhood is based on the foundations of taqwa,
- eeman and the kalimah 'laa ilaha ila Allah Muhammad Arrasool Allah'

O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqûn (pious - see V.2:2). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

- even though it’s an honour for you to speak Arabic:
- if the person speaks Arabic is a kaafir, then there is no honour
- in speaking Arabic for that kaafir (i.e Abu Lahab,
-Abu Jahl, or Bashar Al-Assad)
- the worst of kufaar will always be an Arab who doesn’t believe in Islam.
- the worst of munafiqh also.

The Bedouins are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy, and more likely to be in ignorance of the limits (Allah's Commandments and His Legal Laws, etc.) which Allah has revealed to His Messenger. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:97)

Prophet (SAW) said: Your father is one. Beware! No Arab has precedence over an Ajmi, no Ajmi has precedence over an Arab, No white has precedence over a Black and no Black has precedence over a white, there is no precedence but on the basis of Taqwa (piety). [Musnad Ahmad, Buloogh ul Amani part 12, pg 226, Sanad: Sahih]

The reason why the Arab is the worst of kaafir and munafiqh is

-because The Quran is in the Arabic language,
-and it didn’t penetrate his heart.

”None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”. (Al-Bukhari)

- when two Muslims shake hands: all their sins will be forgiven,
-before they part company.

Narrated By Al-Bara' ibn Azib: The Prophet (SAW) said: Two Muslims will not meet and shake hands having their sins forgiven them before they separate. [Abu Dawud 5193, Tirmidhi 2736, Ahmed 5212, Ibn e Majah 3703]

The seven people who will be under the shade of Allah:

“…a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah's sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says 'I fear Allah', a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.' Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari Vol.1, p.356, No.629 & Sahih Muslim Vol.2, p. 493, No.2248


- to smile with your Muslim brother or sister, you get a reward (barakah)

Abu Dharr (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Your smile before your brother is a sadaqah for you, and your enjoining piety and forbidding evil is a sadaqah. Your guiding one who is lost on the land is a sadaqah for you. Your leading the blind is a sadaqah for you. Your removing from the thoroughfare a stone, a thorn or a bone is for you a sadaqah. And, your filling with your bucket the bucket of your brother is a sadaqah for you [Tirmidhi 1963, Ahmed 21538]

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 Rasul (saw) said: you shall never enter paradise
-without loving one another: and that thing
-that spreads love is spreading the salaams.

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “By Him in Whose Hand is my life, you will not enter Paradise till you believe, and you will not believe till you love each other. Shall I not guide you to something which if you do, you will love each other. Give currency to salaam between yourselves.” [Tirmidhi 2697, Muslim 54, Bukhari 260, Abu Dawud 5193, Ibn Majah 68, Ahmed 10436]

2. YOU MUST FEEL THE PAIN OF THE UMMAH


- when you watch what is happening on the TV, you should feel their pain.
-i.e the siege on Gaza: Even white kufaar feel the pain of the people of Palestine.

The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); they perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give the Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:71)

- you are not allowed to prefer the kuffaar
- over your Muslim brothers and sisters.
- the Barelvis prefers a Hindu Indian over the Muslims.
- (Dr. Tahir Qadri said that the Hindus are their brothers
- and the mujahideen are terrorists.
- they have no Al Walaa wal Baraa. (Love or Hate for the sake of Allah)
- the reason being is that they are Hindus.

3. LOVE FOR THEM WHAT YOU LOVE FOR YOURSELF

”None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”. (Al-Bukhari)


- you cannot want happiness for yourself, but want sadness for them
- we use this hadith to ask sisters if they could
- share their husbands with another sister.
- a sister will say: ' I will share anything else, except my husband',
- because they were bought up with a western mentality.
- or they have weak eeman.

4. WHEN THEY WORK FOR YOU, PAY THEM BEFORE THEIR SWEAT DRIES.

Abdullah-b-Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah said: Pay the labourer his wages before his sweat dries up. - (Ibn Majah)


- pay them before their sweat dries, don’t rip them off,
- or make promises and break the promise

The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The one who gets married with the intention not to pay dowry to his wife is a fornicator. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” (Ibn Hiban, 2/270)

“The one who borrows money with the intention to pay it back, Allah (SWT) will make a way for him to pay back what he owes. And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay it back, Allah (SWT) will destroy him.” (Al-Bukhari, 2387)


- if a person works for you in Jamaica and you don’t pay them,
- they might burn your car, or it could get violent.

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah says, 'I will be against three persons on the Day of Resurrection:
1. One who makes a covenant in My Name, but he proves treacherous.
2. One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price.
3. And one who employs a labourer and gets the full work done by him but does not pay him his wages.'" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 3, Book 34, Hadith #430]

5. WHEN YOU BORROW FROM THEM, PAY THEM BACK

And the one who borrows money with the intention not to pay back is a thief.” (Ibn Hiban, 2/270)


- people who borrow and do not want to pay back, we call them snakes.
- they think they are clever, but they don’t realize
- that on Judgment Day they have to pay it back.
- you make hajj (when you owe money), you are making hajj
- to give it away on Judgment Day.
- you can’t pay with worldly currency: the only currency Allah
- will accept are your good deeds.
- salah, sawm, zakah, hajj, etc
- we will run away from all our loved ones
- guarding our good deeds
- saying "nafsi, nafsi" - "myself, myself"!!

That Day shall a man flee from his brother, ('Abasa 80:34)

And from his mother and his father, ('Abasa 80:35)

And from his wife and his children. ('Abasa 80:36)

Everyman, that Day, will have enough to make him careless of others.
('Abasa 80:37)


- those of you who borrowed money and didn’t pay it back:
- thinking you are clever - you only deceive yourselves.
- but you perceive it not!

On the authority of Abu 'abd ar-Rahman 'Abdullah ibn Mas'ud (RA), who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) and he is the truthful, the believed, narrated to us: By Allah, other than whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which is written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of the Hell-fire and thus he enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus he enters it. [al-Bukhari and Muslim]

- a man will be an arms length from paradise,
- yet you will be thrown in the hell-fire:
- because he was very bad with the people.

6. WHEN YOU BORROW THEIR PROPERTY, YOU LOOK AFTER IT
- this is not money: things like cars, clothes iron, etc
- don’t allow people to borrow your laptop
- if we can’t trust you, you have no deen!
- give back the property in the same manner in which you borrowed it.
- their word is as good as gold, not fake!

A man without trust is a man without faith. And a man who does not fulfill his promises is a man without faith. HADITH OF AHMAD IBN HANBAL. ON THE AUTHORITY OF ANAS IBN MALIK.

Those who are faithfully true to their Amanat (all the duties which Allah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.) and to their covenants; (Al-Mu'minun 23:8)

4 signs of a Hypocrite:
1 when he speaks, he lies
2 he breaks covenants
3 he betrays your trust
4 when he quarrels, he is insulting while doing it

**A true believer, even when he is upset, his tongue is still clean

The Prophet said, "Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up.
1. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays.
2. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie.
3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous.
4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner." [Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 2, Hadith #33]


**We’re not permitted to have a munafiqh for our friend

Example:
- he might call his wife bad names when arguing with her.
- you are not allowed to have a munafiqh as your friend.
- because you were commanded by Allah to be harsh with the munafiqh.
- you tell a friend who is munafiqh your business, and they expose you!

O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed is that destination. (At-Tawbah 9:73)

In life, we have 3 types of people
1 friend
2 enemy
3 frenemy
[enemy who pretends to be your friend]

- you tell a friend who is a munafiqh your business, and they will expose you!
- people on the internet are treacherous: they hide behind a computer screen
- and then they betray you.

7. DO NOT SELL THEM FAULTY GOODS
-don’t sell them faulty goods such as cars
-we must tell them about the deficiency in the car
-if there is a fault in the car, we will decrease the price
-Shaikh had friend who sold used cars
-Shaikh said jokingly he wanted to work there
-the friend said this is not the proper job for a Shaikh
-because in this business lies are too many
-and this is not proper for a Shaikh
-man ghashana fa laysa minna
-he who cheats us, is not one of us
-we have to point out the faults in what we are about to sell
-if the customer wants to purchase it, it’s up to them
-but the seller must tell the customer
-about the real condition of the item
-in UK, shaikh was given a car by a Pakistani brother
-be careful with gear of the car
-if the engine is faulty, they put STP
-when the seller buys the car, he cannot hear the engine
-only a fool buys an automatic car and does not see a mechanic
-to check the engine and gear box
-every used car has a problem

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Anyone who carries arms against us is not one of us. Anyone who cheats us is not one of us." [Muslim]

When a person wants to be a presidential candidate in America:
- people take polls, asking questions:
- examples: which is the family man?
- and who would you buy a used car from?!

8. DON’T RIP THEM OFF W/ HIGH PRICES

Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; and do not undercut one another, but be you. O servants of Allah, brothers. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail him, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt. Piety is right here -and the Prophet (saws) pointed to his breast three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. (Muslim)

But seek, with that (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allah has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allah likes not the Mufsidûn (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts). (Al-Qasas 28:77)


- if you are the only man in a community with goods that the people need:
- you are not allowed to inflate the prices,
- selling them "for an arm and a leg"!
- another way, is bidding for a car to push the price up.
- Allah has forbidden all types of oppression.

9. WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE UP WEAPONS AGAINST THEM [not even jokingly]

None of you must point a weapon at his brother for he does not know whether the devil may draw it out while it is in his hand as a result of which he will fall into a pit of hell. (Agreed upon).

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Anyone who carries arms against us is not one of us. Anyone who cheats us is not one of us." [Muslim]

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 190 of Bukhari... Narrated: The statement of the Prophet: Whoever takes up arms against us is not from us."

What if the gun goes off accidentally?


10. DON’T UNDER-CUT THEM IN THE MARKET PLACES

- if there are 3 of you selling the same products in the market place,
- you must have a meeting and fix the price.

11. DON'T PROPOSE ON TOP OF A PROPOSAL
-these proposals only apply to real Muslims not Talafis,
-Shia, Barelvis...
-we cannot pray behind the zindeeq, therefore,
-brothers can propose to the sisters
-if you proposed to her (due to ignorance), it is not sin on you
-A Sahabiyat came to Rasulallah seeking advice
-he said not to marry to the Sahabah who proposed but to marry Usama
-who was only 16 years old at that time
-the nikah was successful

'Uqba b. 'Amir said on the pulpit that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: A believer is the brother of a believer, so it is not lawful for a believer to outbid his brother, and he should not propose an engagement when his brother has thus proposed until he gives it up. SAHIH MUSLIM Book 008, Number 3294

- this is the madhab of Ahmad ibn Hanbal.
- (this ruling does not apply to Saudi Salafis (Talafis): Barelvis, Shia, etc)

Spying in Brixton (UK):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfa--DV8Lmo

Yahya related to me from Malik from Muhammad ibn Yahya ibn Habban from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah said, "Do not ask for a woman in marriage when another Muslim has already done so. [Muwatta 28.1]

- (nor any zindeeq [heretic])
- what if a Muslim brother proposed to a girl and the girl didn’t give an answer:
- the madhab of Ahmad Ibn Hanbal says it is allowed.
- Abu Hanifah said: you are not allowed to propose to her
- because she has to pray salat al istikhara, and do character checks etc.
- the correct opinion is that of Abu Hanifah

Fatimah bint Qays went to the Prophet seeking marital advice when both Mu’awiyah Ibin Abu Sufyan and Abu Jahm had proposed to her. The Prophet told her, "Mu’awiyah is stingy and tight fisted) and Abu Jahm beats his women." So marry Usamah instead. (Muslim, Abu Dawud, At Tirmidhi, An Nisai, and Ibin Majah)

- when a girl asks you about the character of a brother:
- you must give the good and the bad points about the brother.
- this is not backbiting.
- Fatimah bint Qays got proposals from Mu’awiyah and Abu Jahm:
- she didn’t know who to accept.
- the prophet told her, Mu’awiyah is stingy, and Abu Jahm is a wife beater,
- you should marry Osama bin Zaid.
- she was shocked because she was a noble woman
- and Osama was the son of a slave Zaid ibn Harithah

12. WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO HARM THEM w/ YOUR HANDS or YOUR TONGUE

A Muslim is one whom other people are safe from his tongue and his hand. (Bukhari)


-the Muslims must be safe from our hands and tongues
-some people come to PalTalk for sincere knowledge,
-others come to backbite others
-some come to beg for money
-some come to look for a wife
-some come just to slander... everyone has a reason for being here
-the munafiqoon go to 5 or 6 rooms
-they go to rooms of the Shia, Barelvis, and Saudi Salafi
-these people are not convinced about ISLAM
-when Shaikh asks them why they are in these rooms,
-people answer: I WAS CURIOUS
-these people always apostate from Islam
-(they're not happy in their deen)
-only munafiqhs go to the rooms of munafiqhs

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)

13. WE HAVE 6 RIGHTS OVER YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTER, SO GIVE THEM

1. “When you meet him greet him” 2. “When he invites you, respond to him 3. “When he seeks counsel, give him advice” 4. “When he sneezes and praises Allah, say to him: ‘May Allah have mercy on you (Yarhamokallah)” 5. “When he is sick, visit him” 6. “And when he dies, follow his funeral” [Sahih Muslim, Book 026, Hadith #5379]

1. WHEN HE GIVES YOU SALAAM, YOU RETURN HIS SALAAM
2. WHEN HE INVITES YOU, YOU GO TO THE INVITATION (if it’s haraam, you can decline)
3. WHEN HE SEEKS YOUR ADVICE, YOU ADVISE HIM SINCERELY
4. WHEN HE SNEEZES YOU SAY YARHAMUKALLAH
5. WHEN HE IS SICK, YOU GO TO VISIT HIM
6. WHEN HE DIES, YOU GO TO HIS JANAZAH

These 6 rights are in order of the Prophet's sunnah

-if you want to give dawah to a family member,
-you can go to their Christmas dinner
-but we're not to just go to someone's Christmas
-we're not even to say MERRY CHRISTMAS [we're a kaafir, if we do]

ISLAM BEGAN AS SOMETHING STRANGE AND WILL RETURN AS SOMETHING STRANGE
SO GIVE GOOD NEWS TO THE STRANGERS [us]

Narrated by Muslim (145) from Abu Hurayrah who said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.”


-we're not to give Christmas cards:
-if we do, we have hypocrisy in our heart
-we have no al walaa wal baraa
-if you imitate someone, you'll be come like them

Indeed, anyone who "imitates a people is one of them." (A hadith reported by Abu Daoud on the authority of Ibn 'Umar.)

14. IT'S HARAAM TO OPPRESS OUR UMMAH

The Authority Of Abu Dharr Al-Ghafari: On the authority of Abu Dharr Al-Ghafari, of the prophet is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord is that He said: "O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you. O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and you will not attain benefiting Me so as to benefit Me. O my servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to become as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more than a needle decreases the sea if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good praise Allah, and let him who finds other than that blame no one but himself." Related by Muslim.

THINGS THAT ARE HARAAM FOR ALLAH
1 to tell a lie
2 to break His promises

...“Oh, my servants! I have made oppression haraam (forbidden) upon myself, and also between you. So do not oppress each other...." [Sahih Muslim, Hadith #6246]

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu'adh to Yemen and said, "Fear the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allah." [Sahih al-Bukhari (1395) and Sahih Muslim (19)]

In another hadith; The Prophet (SAW) declared: 'Three du'as are surely answered: The du'a of the oppressed, the du'a of the traveler, and the du'a of the father/mother (upon their child)'. The One who is suffering injustice is heard by Allah (SWT) when he invokes Allah (SWT) to retain his rights from the unjust one or oppressor. [al-Bayhaqi, at-Tirmidhi - Sahih]

3 PEOPLE WHO'S DUA IS ALWAYS ANSWERED
1 father for his son
2 traveler
3 the man who is oppressed

***even the dua of a Christian if he does not commit shirk in his dua

And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allah, making their Faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others. (Al-'Ankabut 29:65)


-the Christians prayed not to drown and Allah answered their dua
-but when they landed safely, they went to worship idols again
-so this is evidence that Allah answers the dua of a kaafir

So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. (Az-Zalzalah 99:7)

And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant), shall see it. (Az-Zalzalah 99:8)

15. DON’T MAKE INDECENT PROPOSALS TO HIS WIVES AND DAUGHTERS

2 TYPES OF PROPOSALS
-praise worthy
-blame worthy

SHAIKH IN THE UK

-a sister called SH and said a brother wanted to do the kama sutra w/ her
-[thinking he meant nikah but he meant zina (s-x outside of nikah)
-zina is haraam
-some w/ a beard like the Ahmedis LOOK so pious but not everyone w/ a beard is legitimate

Imam Ahmad recorded Abu Umamah (RA) saying that a young man came to the Prophet (SAW) and said, "O Messenger of Allah! Give me permission to commit Zina (unlawful sex).'' The people surrounded him and rebuked him, saying, "Stop! Stop!'' But the Prophet said, "(Come close)". The young man came to him, and he said, "(Sit down)", so he sat down. The Prophet said, "(Would you like it (unlawful sex) for your mother?)" He said, "No, by Allah, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their mothers!)" The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your daughter?)" He said, "No, by Allah, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their daughters!)" The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your sister?)" He said, "No, by Allah, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their sisters!)" The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your paternal aunt?)" He said, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger! May I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their paternal aunts!)" The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your maternal aunt?)" He said, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger! May I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their maternal aunts!)" Then the Prophet put his hand on him and said, "(O Allah, forgive his sin, purify his heart and guard his chastity.)" After that the young man never paid attention to anything of that nature.

Stay chaste and your women will be chaste, and save yourself from that which is unfit for a Muslim. Verily, adultery is a debt, if you have taken this debt, know that its payment will be taken from the people of your household. One who commits adultery, in return adultery will be committed with him, even though it will be committed against the wall of your house. O man! If you are wise then you should know it (Diwan Ash-Shafi'i)


-if you seduce a wife, someone one day will seduce yours!
-when a man is having an affair, he looks over his shoulder
-and thinks his wife is having an affair, too
-they become paranoid
-this applies to seducing a daughter, too

And those who invoke not any other ilah (god) along with Allah, nor kill such life as Allah has forbidden, except for just cause, nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this shall receive the punishment. (Al-Furqan 25:68)

Murder and Zina
are mentioned side by side in the above ayah
-if you corrupt the daughter of a Muslim, he will kill you

"It is less serious for a man to fornicate with ten women than for him to fornicate with his neighbour's wife." (Bukhari)

Al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), asked his Companions about fornication and they said, "It is unlawful. Allah and His Messenger have made it unlawful." He said, "It is less serious for a man to fornicate with ten women than for him to fornicate with his neighbour's wife." Then he asked them about stealing. They replied, "It is unlawful. Allah and His Messenger have made it unlawful." He said, "It is less serious for a man to steal from ten houses than it is for him to steal from his neighbour's house." [Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari, #103]

Abdullah reported that he asked. “O Messenger of Allah, which sin is the gravest (of all)”? He said, “That you create for Allah partners while He has created you.” He asked “What next”? He said, “That you kill your son fearing that he would eat with you.” He asked. “What next”? He said. “That you commit adultery with your neighbour’s wife.” [Tirmidhi 3193, Bukhari 4477, Muslim 86, Abu Dawud 2319, Nisai 4019]


The ramifications of adultery is that IT IS A DEBT WE WILL OWE

”None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”. (Al-Bukhari)

16. DON'T LET THEIR SECRETS OUT BECAUSE YOU HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH THEM

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


-when you're told a secret, it is an amana [trust]
-we must make baraa from un-trusted people
-baraa [hatred / break ties]
-if we can't trust you, you have no deen

A man without trust is a man without faith. And a man who does not fulfill his promises is a man without faith. HADITH OF AHMAD IBN HANBAL. ON THE AUTHORITY OF ANAS IBN MALIK.

Those who are faithfully true to their Amanat (all the duties which Allah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.)[] and to their covenants; (Al-Mu'minun 23:8)


-a real Muslim takes your secret to their grave

17. DON’T TAKE SIDES W/ THE KUFFAAR AGAINST OUR UMMAH
-the Sauds, the Pakistan government
-do not side w/ anyone siding w/ the kuffaar
-they let the kuffaar into their lands to refuel
-and have their armies stationed there
-when the kuffaar want to bomb Afghanistan, they fill up in Pakistan
-we don't take the kuffaar as a helper

O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers and unjust). (Al-Ma'idah 5:51)

And you see those in whose hearts there is a disease (of hypocrisy), they hurry to their friendship, saying: "We fear lest some misfortune of a disaster may befall us." Perhaps Allah may bring a victory or a decision according to His Will. Then they will become regretful for what they have been keeping as a secret in themselves. (Al-Ma'idah 5:52)


-people who are weak w/o self esteem, they take sides w/ the kuffaar
-those traveling w/ Musa (a.s) said GIVE US IDOLS TO WORSHIP

SHAIKH IN THE UK
-saw many walking in the UK w/ 2 earrings in their ears
-celebrating kuffaar holidays
-becoming like their oppressors
-Shaikh would never go to these people's janazah
-they have no izza [honor]
-they look to follow someone powerful
-you might want to follow many CULTURES: US, Hindu, UK, ...
-but when we do jihad, for Islam, only a few of us die
-when the Sahabahs did jihad, only a few Muslims died
-but if they abandoned jihad, millions died

Why: because to RESIST IS TO EXIST
-believers are helpers and supporters of one another
-you must not ally with the kuffaar

“If you deal in usury (riba) and hang onto the tails of cows, being satisfied with cultivation and ceasing to take part in Jihad, Allah will inflict a humiliation upon you which will not be removed until you return to your religion.” [Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawud and graded as authentic by Al-Qattan. Al-Hafiz states in
Al-Bulugh that the chain of narrators is trustworthy and reliable]

The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another (At-Tawbah 9:71)


-all of the kuffaar are united

And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifa - chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allah's Religion of Islamic Monotheism), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism). (Al-Anfal 8:73)

-don't be surprised if there is a friendship
-between ISRAEL and INDIA now
-Ibn Kathir said we're to unite w/ Christians
-to save our necks in the end of times
-we're to practice solidarity
-we're to do al walaa wal baraa [love and hate FOR THE SAKE FO ALLAH]

18. DON’T SPY ON THE UMMAH
-spying is haraam

O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful. (Al-Hujurat 49:12)

-we're not to inquire of their weaknesses
-but we can expose the wicked scholars
-we're murji w/ leaders but we're not to be
-we're to hide each others' sins
-some divorced sisters only say qadurullah
-when they are asked why they were divorced

Whoever shields [or hides the misdeeds of] a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the Hereafter. [MUSLIM]

Fatimah bint Qays went to the Prophet seeking marital advice when both Mu’awiyah Ibin Abu Sufyan and Abu Jahm had proposed to her. The Prophet told her, "Mu’awiyah is stingy and tight fisted) and Abu Jahm beats his women." So marry Usamah instead. (Muslim, Abu Dawud, At Tirmidhi, An Nisai, and Ibin Majah)


-they don't go into details and can only go into details
-if the ex-husband proposes
-and she is asked a character reference
-Bilal went into details for a character reference
-sisters don’t need to give a reason why a proposal was turned down

Bilal (RA) went with his brother to propose to the father of a Muslimah and said, “I am Bilal and this is my brother; two Abyssinian slaves. We were astray Allah guided us. We were slaves, Allah liberated us. If you give your daughter in my hand then AlhamduLilah, if you decline then Allah is sufficient.” [Hayat-us-Sahabah]

O you who believe! Ask not about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if you ask about them while the Qur'an is being revealed, they will be made plain to you. Allah has forgiven that, and Allah is Oft¬Forgiving, Most Forbearing. (Al-Ma'idah 5:101)


-do not become an agent provocateur
-don't come to PalTalk to spy on us
-when you spy for the kuffaar - YOU BECOME A KAAFIR

19. DO NOT BOYCOTT THE UMMAH FOR MORE THAN 3 DAYS
-every Mon and Thurs our good deeds are shown to Allah 'tala
-our sins are forgiven except for 2 Muslims have no reconciled
-this hadith only applies to Muslims, not munafiqhs

The gates of Paradise will be opened on Mondays and on Thursdays, and every servant [of Allah] who associates nothing with Allah will be forgiven, except for the man who has a grudge against his brother. [About them] it will be said: Delay these two until they are reconciled; delay these two until they are reconciled. Qudsi 20

Narrated By Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari: Allah's Apostle said, "It is not lawful for a man to desert his brother Muslim for more than three nights. (It is unlawful for them that) when they meet, one of them turns his face away from the other, and the other turns his face from the former, and the better of the two will be the one who greets the other first." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, Hadith #100]

Abu Khirash Hadrad bin Abu Hadrad Al-Aslami said: I heard the Prophet PBUH) saying, "Whosoever forsakes his brother for a year is like one who sheds his blood.'' [Abu Dawud].

20. CHEER FOR THEM WHEN THEY ARE ON THE BATTLEFIELD FIGHTING AGAINST THE KUFFAAR

-don't cheer for Crusaders
-or call the mujahideen 'terrorist' and 'Khawarijj'
-it's haraam to pray behind someone
-who calls the mujahideen 'terrorist' and 'Khawarijj'
-salah behind them is bautil
-since jihad is the 6th pillar of Islam,
-you negate your Islam if you don't love the mujahideen

21. WE MUST PHYSICALLY PARTAKE TO LIBERATE LAND AND MAN
-on the battlefield to liberate our ummah from oppression

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)

And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help." (An-Nisa 4:75)

Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (At-Tawbah 9:14)


ALLAH USES US TO DISGRACE THE KUFFAAR
-as he helped the mujahideen cause capitalism to fail all over the world
-we're to disgrace kufr

KUFR CAN BECOME A FITNAH FOR US
-so see 9:14 that we're to fight the kuffaar w/ our hands and disgrace them

Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (At-Tawbah 9:14)

-if we don't disgrace kufr, the kufr will become kuffaar

Bismillah ar rahman ar rahim was left out of surah Taubah
-because Allah wasn’t going to mention MERCY
-this is the VERSE OF THE SWORD not MERCY
-you to your way, me to mine - was abrogated by At-Tawbah 9:5

Then when the Sacred Months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:5)


THESE ARE THE 21 CONDITIONS TO BE SINCERE TO OUR UMMAH ……
