Let us define ‘nikah’
‘Nikah’ according to the linguistic meaning:
-- a holy matrimony between a male and a female
-- therefore according to Shariah Law,
-- marriage cannot take place between 2 males or 2 females

QUESTION: Is nikah compulsory or strongly recommended?

ANSWER: Nikah becomes compulsory on the person who has sexual needs and he fears falling into zina

The Prophet and he said, 'He who can afford to marry should marry, because it will help him refrain from looking at other women, and save his private parts from looking at other women, and save his private parts from committing illegal sexual relation; and he who cannot afford to marry is advised to fast, as fasting will diminish his sexual power." [Bukhari 111: 129]

The scholars of Islam have agreed that the person who fears falling into zina, marriage is compulsory for that person. The practice of abstention is not encouraged in Islam. It is a cursed innovation. See 57:27 so a Muslim is not allowed to practice abstention when he has needs; ALLAH 'tala cursed abstention

But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allâh therewith, but that they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fâsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allâh). (Al-Hadid 57:27)

Also the Rasul said: I marry women and anyone who abstains from my Sunnah of getting married, he or she is not a follower of me

I do sleep and I also marry women. So he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is not from me (not one of my followers)." Hadith - Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, No. 1, Narrated Anas bin Malik

Muslims believe in nikah, not abstention

-- Abstention is from the Roman Catholic faith and Buddhist practice it, as well

QUESTION: Is it permissible for a woman to give herself away in marriage to a man without a wali?

ANSWER: It is NOT permissible for a woman to give herself away in marriage to a man without a wali

"When a woman marries without the permission of her wali, then her marriage is not valid, not valid, not valid." (Ahmad, Tirmidhi and others)

Hanafi fiqh

Abu Hanifa believes a free woman can marry herself to a man without a wali (she must have sound aql)

If a girl should get married without a wali, because she is of the Abu Hanifa madhab, you’re not allowed to say she did zina and is living in sin. A shaikh should examine the husband, and if the shaikh approves of him as in he is good in character and good in deen the marriage is valid; but if the shaikh deems the person a Deobandi, etc. the shaikh must say that marriage is bautil: maybe he is not a deviant, but he’s a drug dealer: if his character turns out to be evil, then the shaikh MUST pronounce the marriage as bautil

Hafsa and Umar:
-- sometimes the wali is awkward
-- most Muslim parents ignore the sexual needs of their kids
-- these Muslim parents are not pious, like in the time of the Sahabahs

When Hafsa needed a husband, Umar approached Uthman and Uthman said: "it is not my intention to get married at this time" and then Umar approached Abu Bakr, and Abu Bakr did not say yes or no. Umar got upset with Abu Bakr and went to Muhammad PBUH and complained about Abu Bakr’s reaction. Muhammad PBUH smiled and said don’t worry, maybe ALLAH will give her someone better; the Rasul himself married Hafsa

In the time of the Rasul
-- the Sahabahs would approach pious men
-- and ask them to marry their daughters
-- but the Muslim parents today are not like that:
--they have many issues : pride, racism, ego, etc
-- some Muslim girls fall into zina
-- because their fathers didn’t look for a husband for them
-- they are not like Umar (ra) who went looking for a husband for his daughter

Question: Is it permissible for a man to approach a righteous man to marry his daughter or sister?

Answer: Yes

He said: "I intend to wed one of these two daughters of mine to you, on condition that you serve me for eight years, but if you complete ten years, it will be (a favour) from you. But I intend not to place you under a difficulty. If Allâh will, you will find me one of the righteous." (Al-Qasas 28:27)

When a person is not on deen
-- they will never look for a husband for their daughters
-- they are not on the deen, and they are jahil
-- they are not like Umar (ra) who approached Uthman
-- and Abu Bakr for marriage of his daughter

Question: What are the woman that is haraam to marry

Answer:
It is haraam to marry a woman who your father was married to

And marry not women whom your fathers married, except what has already passed; indeed it was shameful and most hateful, and an evil way. (An-Nisa 4:22)

The pagan Arabs:

-- their practice is that when a father should die,
-- the son would inherit the father's wives
-- except for the biological mother

One day the Rasul sent a man to kill another man and to confiscate his property, when they asked what that man did, the Rasul said: he inherited his fathers wife

-- you are a mahram for your stepmother and stepdaughter forever
-- so if a woman gave suck to you (mother by milk),
-- you are mahram to her and all her daughters are haraam for you;
-- a girl is allowed to uncover in front of her stepfather

Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your foster mother who gave you suck, your foster milk suckling sisters, your wives' mothers, your step daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom you have gone in but there is no sin on you if you have not gone in them (to marry their daughters), - the wives of your sons who (spring) from your own loins, and two sisters in wedlock at the same time, except for what has already passed; verily, Allah is Oft¬Forgiving, Most Merciful. (An-Nisa 4:23)

If you marry a woman and...
-- that marriage was annulled before that marriage was consummated
-- you can marry the daughter of that woman
-- if you have an adopted son, and he dies
-- you’re allowed to marry his wife after his death
-- the wife of your biological son is haraam for you

Who are the women who are allowed to uncover?
**allowed to uncover in front of you means to remove their hijab

**your mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers sisters, mothers sisters, brothers daughters, sisters daughters, foster mother, and all your foster sisters

What if the step father is a kaafir?
-- even if your step father is a kaafir, he is mahram for you
-- if a Muslim sister should uncover in front of her kaafir stepfather,
-- she did not do anything wrong
-- a man is not allowed to marry two blood sisters
---and live with them at the same time
-- but if one sister should die, or he divorces one,
-- he is allowed to marry the other one
-- you’re not allowed to marry the aunt and the niece
-- and live with them at the same time
-- you’re allowed to divorce one and marry the other one,
-- but cannot live with them in the same house at the same time
-- other women who are haraam for you to marry: your relatives
-- other women who are haraam for you: mushrik
-- such as Buddhist girls, Sikh girls, Hindu girls, Rastafarians, etc
-- the Shaikh who performs the marriage becomes a kaafir
-- Ibn Taymiyyah said: whenever a scholar makes something
-- that is haraam to be halaal, that person is a kaafir

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H): “Whenever a person makes halal what is haraam by consensus or makes haraam what is halal by consensus or replaces the Sharee’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” “Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 3/267

-- for that Shaikh to officiate a marriage between a Muslim and a pagan
-- is an act of apostasy
-- that Shaikh is making a mockery of Quran and Sunnah, that shaikh is a kaafir
-- a Muslim man is allowed to marry a Muslim Girl, or a Jewish girl
-- ...and a Christian Girl
-- we are not allowed to marry Zoroastrians, fire worshippers
-- a Muslim man is allowed to marry a Christian and Jewish girls
-- only when no Muslim girls are available
-- if Muslim girls are there for him to marry,
-- then it is not permissible for him to marry a Jewish or Christian girl
-- when Umar was caliph, one of his governors married a Christian girls,
-- Umar asked him to divorce him
-- Umar quoted 5:51 to trump him

… of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them. (Lawful to you in marriage) are chaste women from the believers and chaste women from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) (Al-Ma'idah 5:5)

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)


-- the governor quoted 5:5, but Umar trumped him with 5:51 and said
-- "who will be left to marry the Muslim girls if you are marrying the Christians?"
-- you’re allowed to marry a LOYAL Christian woman who is a widow,
-- if she didn’t sleep around
-- you’re not allowed to marry an unchaste woman

A Muslim woman is ONLY allowed to marry a Muslim Man

'If a Muslim woman should marry a kaafir, this means she is living in sin; she is committing fornication, the kids who are born from this marriage are bastard kids and are not allowed to lead the salah; her marriage is bautil

O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:10)


A Muslim woman who is married to a kaafir man, her marriage is NOT accepted, her marriage is bautil, she is living in sin, the kids born from this marriage are bastard kids and are not allowed to lead the salah in a masjid, the shaikh who performed this marriage is a kaafir; the shaikh falls into the category of those who make haraam halal

Question: Can a man marry more than 4 women

Answer: No, it is haraam


The scholars have agreed that it is haraam for man to marry more than 4 wives, and it is permissible to kill the man who marries a 5th wife because he is committing adultery

Question: What is mutah and what is the ruling for mutah

Answer:'mutah'- when a man marries a woman for a fixed period

-- he can even marry her for a short period of one hour!
-- this is the fiqh of the Shias, they allow mutah

“'Rabia ibn Umayya made a temporary marriage with a woman and she is pregnant by him.'' Umar ibn al-Khattab went out in dismay dragging his cloak, saying, "This temporary marriage, had I come across it, I would have ordered stoning and done away with it! Malik's Muwatta Book 28, No 28.18.42

The Rasul allowed mutah in the battlefield and made it haraam in other battles: the reason why the Rasul made it haraam is because the Sahabahs were thinking of castrating themselves

The Shias believe that Umar (ra) made mutah haraam because someone did mutah with his daughter and he was offended

The Sunnis make mutah haraam because of the Hadith:
-- donkey meat and mutah is haraam @ the battle of khaybar
-- the Shias say that the Rasul made it halal in the conquest of Mecca
-- the correct opinion: mutah is haraam
-- if a girl becomes pregnant from mutah, the baby becomes her burden

Once Ali argued with a man who believed in Muta'a and told him that the Prophet made muta'a and the meat of donkey haraam on the day of Khaiber (Bukhari Vol. 7, pg. 287 and Vol. 4 pg. 134)

SHIITE BELIEF:

With mutah, you don’t even need an Imam to officiate the marriage, you can tell the girl : "ill pay you 50 US dollars, and we can go to bed for an hour"

A woman in Iran, when she reaches menopause, she is very happy because she knows she can earn a fortune from mutah and she doesn’t have to worry about falling pregnant!

The Shia women from Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan (yes there are Shias there, in a place called "the diamond market"); these women earn fortunes from mutah; sometimes these women sleep with 10 different men every night

Hanbali fiqh:
-- a Muslim man is in China (example) and he has sexual needs
-- (he is on a trip for 6 months)
-- he is allowed to marry a girl for that 6 months
-- as long as he keeps that to himself
-- this dispute about mutah will continue until Judgment Day. Why?
-- because there are some Sunnis who believe that a man
-- is allowed to marry a woman for a certain amount of time
-- if he doesn’t tell her that amount of time

‘misyaar’ marriage is another type of marriage
-- misyaar was allowed by Shaikh bin Baz
-- misyaar is when you marry a rich girl
-- and she gives up her rights of maintenance
-- the marriage is as permanent as any marriage but
-- maintains herself financially

shigaar marriage is swapping
-- shigaar – swapping: a man has a 20 year old daughter
-- and his best friend has a 20 year old daughter
-- so and they swap the daughters (they don’t ask for dowry)
-- this type of marriage is haraam
-- because it oppresses the girls, the girls were not given any dowry
-- however, it is halal if the girls agree
-- if they didn’t agree, the marriage is haraam because it is a forced marriage
-- the dowry is compulsory to be given to the woman

O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will (An-Nisa 4:19)

Marriage has 4 pillars
1. agreement
2. two witnesses
3. wali
4. dowry

Question: Are forced marriages permissible?

Answer: Surah An-Nisa 4:19 tells you forced marriage is haraam


O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will (An-Nisa 4:19)

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: A virgin came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and mentioned that her father had married her against her will, so the Prophet (peace be upon him) allowed her to exercise her choice. {Book 11, No 2091 : Sunan Abu Dawud}

Narrated Khansa bint Khidam Al-Ansariya that her father gave her in marriage when she was a matron and she disliked that marriage. So she went to Allah's Apostle and he declared that marriage invalid. (Bukhari Vol 7, Book 62, No 69)

Shaikh doesn’t need to give a lecture on forced marriages because one ayah is sufficient: An-Nisa 4:19

Question: Is it better to marry a virgin or non virgin?

Answer: It is better for a woman to be a virgin

-- unless it is in the interest of the man to marry a non virgin
--Shaikh Faisal’s shaikhs in university taught him this

Did you get married, O Jabir?” I replied, “Yes.” He asked, “Is she a virgin or a matron?” I replied, “She is a matron.” He said, “Why didn’t you marry a virgin girl so that you might play with her and she with you (or, you might make her laugh and she make you laugh)?” I said, “My father died, leaving seven or nine girls (orphans) and I did not like to bring a young girl like them, so I married a woman who can look after them.”

He said, “May Allah bestow His Blessing on you.” [Vol 8, Book 75, No 396 : Sahih Bukhari]

3 types of Muslim men :

1 . When they want to marry, they want to marry a Aisha
-- (a young intelligent, pretty virgin who loves the deen)
2. He wants to marry a Khadijah, a pious mature woman who can help him in life
3. He wants to marry one of each, an Aisha and a Khadijah

The best woman to take on a honeymoon is NOT a virgin:
-- it’s a widow or a divorcee 9if you want to have fun)
-- Why?
-- When you for a job the first question they ask you is:
-- do you have experience for the job?
-- some of you brothers do not want to marry sisters who have kids
-- but you get a lot of barakah when you marry a girl with kids
-- if you cannot marry a sister with kids, you are not ready for Jihad
-- Khadijah was not a virgin, she was a widow,
-- the Rasul (saws) loved her so much; they were soul mates
-- so if a sister is a widow, you’re gonna turn your back on her?
-- she needs a husband so her kids will remain in Islam
-- you need to stop being petty and narrow-minded
-- the Rasul married widows and he was so close w/ their children;
-- he ate from the same plate

Narrated 'Umar bin Al Salama: Who was the son of Um Salama, the wife of the Prophet: Once I ate a meal with Allah's Apostle and I was eating from all sides of the dish. So Allah's Apostle said to me, "Eat of the dish what is nearer to you." Volume 7, Book 65, Number 289:

The Rasul would marry women with kids;

-- he would bring the kids up as his own flesh and blood
-- the kids and him PBUH would eat from the same plate
-- the Rasul would teach the kids Islamic adab
-- the Rasul married only ONE virgin in his lifetime

Question: I it permissible for a man to look at a women that he wants to marry?
… and what section of her body is he allowed to look at?

Answer: There are 3 opinions among the scholars

Abu Hanifa: he is allowed to look at her face and the palm of her hands

Ahmed Ibn Hanbal: he is allowed to see her the way her father can see her
-- so if she comes out with no hijab, and a dress to her knees, she did not do anything wrong
-- when you go to her house to propose to her and meet her father

Daoud Dahiri:
-- 'you can peek at a woman in her shower'
-- the opinion of Daoud Dahiri should not be followed;
-- he is known to pass fatwas of this nature
-- Daoud Dahiri says the women will go to paradise
-- but will not smell its fragrance << weird fatwa If a woman asks her husband for a divorce, for no reason, then the smell of paradise is forbidden for her" At-Tirmidhi narrated it; he said this is a Hasan Hadith [Hasan means ‘good’]

And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. (Al-Isra 17:23)


17:23 << you are not allowed to say UFF to your parents
-- meaning you cannot beat your parents
-- Daoud Dahiri says regarding 17:23,
-- you CAN beat your parents but you cant say UFF while doing so
-- Daoud Dahiri was a student of Ahmad Ibn Hanbal
-- but he was kicked out of the study circle
-- because he said the Holy Quran is created

When Umar was a prophet, he proposed to Umm Khulthum’ Umar lifted up her dress and looked at her leg, she said: “If you were not the amir of the believers, I would slap you across the face”

-- this Hadith is used as hujjah to say we are allowed to see the calf of the woman
-- the women who have skinny legs have low libido, and they often die of heart attack
-- its best for you to stay away from women who are anorexic and have low libido
-- if she dies on you the kuffar will accuse you of foul play

Question: Are you allowed to look at a woman (your fiancée) twice who you want to marry?

Answer: The scholars have said it is allowed if you want to be sure about the chemistry with your fianceé

-- It is unwise and makrooh for you to marry without having chemistry

A woman can marry a man she is not attracted to but it is very difficult for a man to marry a woman who he’s not attracted to because a man needs an erection to consummate the marriage

Go and look at her (the woman you are considering marrying) because this will help your time together to be strengthened. " ( Ahmad )

Question: Are their ‘engagements’ in Islam?

Answer: In Islam there are no engagement parties; those are bi'dah

-- In Islam we have wedding feasts but not engagement parties
-- When you propose to a girl and she says Yes, then you are engaged

Question: Is it permitted to propose to a girl who has already been proposed to (she’s considering it)?

Answer: It is not permissible for another brother to propose to her since you’ve already proposed to her

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

Question: What if you propose to a girl and she says "let me think about it, we will see..."
--She didn’t say yes or no

Answer: According to Abu Hanifa, you’re not allowed to propose to this girl

-- Hanbali fiqh: you ARE allowed to propose to her
-- because she did not give that other brother a yes
-- the correct opinion is that of Abu Hanifa
-- you’re not allowed to propose to a sister
-- who has already been proposed to by another brother

Abu Hanifa: you’re not allowed to propose to a girl who is already contemplating a marriage with another brother, you have to give her time to perform salatul istikhara

...but if a munafiqh proposes to a girl, you are allowed to propose to the same girl because their proposal doesn’t count; if a Saudi Salafi, etc proposes to the girl, you’re allowed to propose to the same girl : Saudi Salafi etc are not REAL Muslims

**Whenever a girl turns down a proposal of a brother, she does NOT have to give a reason
-- neither does a brother need to give a reason to a girl
-- so the brother has no right to press the girl and ask her "why did you say no"
-- it is not Islamic for you to press the girl for a reason
-- the reason why you shouldn’t press her is because of Surah 5:101

O you who believe! Ask not about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. (Al-Ma'idah 5:101)

**It is permissible for a girl to propose to a boy in Islam because a woman did propose to the Rasul PBUH

Women are afraid to propose because
-- their female ego wont take NO for an answer
-- nowadays the girls drop hints , instead of proposing
-- whenever a boy proposes to you and you’re happy with his deen
-- and his character, you should marry him

“When someone whose character and morals are agreeable to you approaches you for marriage give your daughter to him in marriage. If you do not then there will be tribulation and immense corruption in the earth.” Abu Hatim al-Muzani and confirmed by Abu Dawud

Question: What is a permissible way to propose?

Answer: It is permissible to send proposals with SMS, text messages, emails, over the phone

...whenever a sister gets a proposal in text message, email, etc. she should tell the brother to have a word with her wali; the wali should not block the brother if he is pleased with his character and creed/deen

Whenever a girl receives a proposal:
-- it is compulsory on her to investigate the character of the man
-- could be lazy, a child molester, or could be addicted to drugs
-- or a wife beater, etc.
-- you need to investigate the brother when you receive the proposal
-- and you should ask his best friends regarding his character

Fatima bint Qais was proposed by 2 people but the Rasul gave her advice on why not to marry them; he advised her to marry Usama; when someone asks you regarding someone for character reference, you should tell the truth -- the good and the bad
-- she was proposed to by Abu Jahm and Mu’awiyah


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

Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture nor the idolaters love that there should be sent down unto you any good thing from your Lord. But Allah chooseth for His mercy whom He will, and Allah is of Infinite Bounty. (Al-Baqarah 2:105)

The kufaar do not want any good to come to you:
-- “min khairin” means = absolutely no good

Types of Goodness:
*spiritual goodness ( clean lifestyle)
*physical goodness ( no diseases)
*mental goodness ( no mental disorders)
*financial goodness ( good in business)
*technological goodness (army : political)

Those who believe in democracy
-- the kufaar bomb afghan with b52s
-- they want to "bomb" the people into democracy!
-- but Allah said : they do not want anything good to come to you
-- democracy gave us Hitler, Bush, Blair
-- these people are: liars /mendacious
-- Bush spoke the truth even though he is a compulsive liar;
-- Allah made him speak the truth to wake up the Muslims
-- they want you to have diseases, corrupt societies
-- with adultery and zina, get dumped in old age homes.

Allah said: Al-Kauther 106 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Lo! We have given thee Abundance; (1) So pray unto thy Lord, and sacrifice. (2) Lo! it is thy insulter (and not thou) who is without posterity. (3)

Al-Kauther 108 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Lo! We have given thee Abundance; (1) So pray unto thy Lord, and sacrifice. (2) Lo! it is thy insulter (and not thou) who is without posterity. (3)

Al-Kauther 108 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the MercifulVerily, We have granted you (O Muhammad (SAW)) Al-Kauthar (a river in Paradise);[] (1) Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (to Him only) (2) For he who hates you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), he will be cut off (from every posterity good thing in this world and in the Hereafter). (3)

HIND bint UTBAH

Who could believe that hind would embrace Islam?
-- she ate the liver of Hamza ( the prophets uncle )
-- or Ikramah ibn Abu Jahl would embrace Islam

ABU JAHL:
-- was the Firawn of the ummah, but the Rasool asked the Sahabahs
-- not to insult at Abu Jahl, as it would hurt his son:
-- Ikramah ibn Abi Jahl
-- the kaafirs of Makkah were rejoicing when Ibrahim the son of the prophet died
-- this Surah tells you that the kufaar do not want any good to come to you
-- the prophet was crying , when his son Ibrahim died
-- the Sahabahs asked him why:
-- he said he was crying because he loved his son

Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allâh is able to do all things? (Al-Baqarah 2:106)

-- there are verses of the Quran that were abrogated:
-- and there were Hadith that were abrogated
-- in the early stages of Islam the prophet forbade the visiting of the graves
-- but then later he allowed and encouraged the visiting of the graves

‘I used to prevent you from visiting the graves…[now] visit them, for verily it reminds you of the hereafter.’ Tirmidhi

Allah's Messenger (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said that, "If one of you sits between her legs (of a woman) and penetrates her, Ghusl (bath) is obligatory." (Bukhari and Muslim) "Even if he does not ejaculate." (Muslim)

Abu Huraira reported: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) visited the grave of his mother and he wept, and moved others around him to tears, and said: Izzadeen: I sought permission from my Lord to beg forgiveness for her but it was not granted to me, and I sought permission to visit her grave and it was granted to motel So visit the graves, for that makes you mindful of death. (Bukhari)

O you who believe! Approach not As¬Salât (the prayer) when you are in a drunken state until you know (the meaning) of what you utter.. [An-Nisa 4:43]


-- Allah didn’t tell the Sahabahs to stop drinking
-- He told them do not come to salah when drunk
-- this is abrogated by Al Maida 5:90
-- the Sahabahs were drinking up till 5:90
-- they drank after Isha and were sober by Fajr

O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, and Al-Ansâb, and Al¬Azlâm (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitân's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful [Al-Maeda 5:90]

-- those in whose hearts is a disease
-- they like to quote abrogated verses
-- the Prophet said: no salah for forty days and forty nights

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar; “Whosoever drinks, alcohol even though he does not get intoxicated, as long as he has a drop of wine in his stomach and in his veins, his salah will not be accepted. If he dies while he is in that situation, he dies as an infidel. The salah of that who drinks alcohol and get intoxicated is not accepted for forty days and if he dies in that situation, he dies as an infidel.” (Nasai)

-- the word "khamir" means anything that befogs the mind
-- intoxicants: smoking weed, crack cocaine
-- these fall under "khamr"

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)

-- when this ayah came down: the Sahabahs
-- spat out the alcohol that they were drinking
-- even though your salah is not accepted for 40 days
-- you still have to pray
-- the reason why many Muslim men drink alcohol is
-- because the culture in daar al harb/kufr is satanic
-- "they dine with wine and swine"
-- when they watch the TV, or films; they see:
-- alcohol and sex in everything
-- can you imagine a Muslim man watching a James Bond fil
-- drinking wine, driving an Aston Martin and
-- having s-x with many pretty women?
-- they are influenced by this culture
-- if you know that you are weak..
-- why don’t you go and live in a Muslim country
-- where there is no "khamr" wine
-- there are no drugs there either
-- many people get their heads chopped off, for smuggling drugs
-- the Saudis put on the landing card,
-- "if you are caught smuggling drugs the punishment is decapitation"
-- yet people still smuggle drugs

Verily, man (disbeliever) is ungrateful to his Lord; And to that he bears witness (by his deeds); (7) And verily, he is violent in the love of wealth (8) [Al-Adiyat 100:6-8]

The Saudis put on the landing card,
--"if you are caught smuggling drugs the punishment is execution"
-- yet people still smuggle drugs
-- they love money so much, they put their head
-- on the line for money ( literally )
-- they read out the charge to make an example:
-- then they cut off the head!

And you love wealth with much love! (Al-Fajr 89:20)

-- when you have wealth, you drive any car, live in any house
-- in any neighborhood, wear the most expensive clothing..
-- men insure their wives and then kill them, to claim the insurance

INSURANCE in ISLAM:
-- Shaikh ibn Jibreen said insurance is haraam:
-- life insurance because people will kill each other to claim
-- car insurance is "money for nothing"
-- you are paying thousands a year for insurance, you don’t have an accident,
-- and the insurance company keeps your money
-- how can we let our wives take busses:
-- we need to have cars to protect our women and children:
-- so what do we do about insurance

In South Africa
-- they have Mercedes Benz and BMWs
-- the Muslim men bought their wives the best cars to drive around in
-- shaikh ibn Jibreen said, you must take the least amount: third party only
-- the UK/USA car insurance is compulsory
-- but in other countries it is not
-- like south Africa and Saudi Arabia -- car insurance is extortion
-- when the kaafir police pull up behind you
-- they type in your license plate number,
-- they can tell if you are insured and who with, your name and address also
-- YOU ARE LIVING IN A WEB

Shaikhs friend in south Africa
-- was speeding in his Alfa Romeo
-- he had taken the number plate, he was driving at 130 mph = 209 kph
-- the cameras would not be able to detect
-- when you use your bank card in shops they trace everything about you!
-- they can track you on your mobile phone also. : the kaafir is a control freak
-- that is why the system is a web
-- when you are an "important/crucial" person, they bug your phone
-- they know exactly what you were up to
-- you are all living in the web

The kaafirs of Quraish
-- didn’t have the technology to turn Makkah into a web
-- they would have done if they had technology to do so
-- in some countries, you have to bring passport
-- and proof of address to get a sum card
-- they are control freaks and they want to know where you live
-- and what you are doing
-- it is halal to lie to a kaafir, as they are the enemy
-- it is haraam to lie to a Muslim
-- we have the example that khamr wasn’t haraam:
-- many Sahabahs dies drinking khamr
-- another abrogation, An-Nisa 4:15

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 Allâh ordains for them some (other) way. (An-Nisa 4:15)

-- in the early stages of Islam, if a girl was to commit zina
-- she would be put under house arrest
-- until they die
-- then the ayah was abrogated

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 Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day. [Al-Noor 24:2]

-- this ayah abrogates the previous ayah; this is the new ruling
-- if they commit zina in Riyyah, they will be sent to dammmam for one year
-- women have a higher libido then men (libido = appetite for intimacy)

3 opinions in tafseer why fornicating woman is mentioned first
1) woman has more libido (appetite for physical needs)
--this opinion is not accepted

2) more shameful for a woman to commit zina than for a man
-- testosterone is stronger than estrogen***
-- the kufaar say a man has done well, in kufrdom:
-- if he has 10 girlfriends
-- but if a woman had many boyfriends,
-- she will be called the worst names under the heavens

3) more harmful for a woman to commit zina than man
--if a man commits zina with her,
-- she will be more likely to catch AIDS but he might escape the disease
--as soon as man ejaculates, she will catch the disease
--she is the one who get pregnant, therefore more dangerous

All these reasons come together
-- and make zina worse for women

-- society forgives men easily for committing zina
-- but had the women committed zina,
-- they would never be forgiven whether in Muslim or kufr society
-- daughters are diamonds : men are dogs : boys will be boys
-- in UK: a Muslim boy can sleep around w/ Sikh and Hindu girls
-- and they are forgiven!
-- all shaikhs Muslim friends:. they adore their daughters
-- their daughters are their lives; they are 'diamonds'

Daughters are diamonds:
-- men are dogs: boys will be boys
-- that’s how people think, the double standard exists
-- in Muslim and kaafir communities
-- those who support honor killing, say that
-- Umar killed his son for committing zina
-- how could he have been killed:
-- he was fighting for Ali, against Mu’awiyah,
-- carrying the flag for Ali, at the battle of sifeen:
-- did he come out of the grave to fight?
-- some parents are proud when their sons commit zina
-- they are westernized, and they do not pray ** ^

Evidences of Quran and Hadith, which were abrogated
-- do not entertaining the idea that Allah is indecisive
-- Allah revealed the Quran in stages
-- Aisha said that if the first things that came with Islam were
-- to give up alcohol, etc, people would not have embraced Islam

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

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. [Al-Anfal 8:39]


-- this ayah was revealed when the Muslims didn’t have an army,
-- and they were not 2a force to be reckoned
-- but Al-Anfal 8:39 abrogates Al-Kaafiroon 109:6
-- Allah is asking a question

Or do you want to ask your Messenger (Muhammad Peace be upon him ) as Mûsa (Moses) was asked before (i.e. show us openly our Lord?) And he who changes Faith for disbelief, verily, he has gone astray from the Right Way. (Al-Baqarah 2:108)

Islamic Etiquettes of Asking Questions

O you who believe! Ask not about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. [ Al-Maeda 5:101]


**Stay away from asking questions that will cause you pain

For verily, it was only the excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed [the nations] who were before you” (Agreed Upon) Hadith No. 9 from 40 Hadith Nawawi

**Do not ask excessive questions

-- we know the story of the Jews with the cow.
-- they were difficult with Allah so Allah was difficult with them

On the authority of Abu Hurairah ‘Abd-ur-Rahmaan ibn Sakhr (radi allahu ‘anhu1) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (saws) say: “What I have forbidden for you, avoid. What I have ordered you [to do], do as much of it as you can. For verily, it was only the excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed [the nations] who were before you” (Agreed Upon) Hadith No. 9 from 40 Hadith

-- this story is so important:
-- Surah Baqarah takes its name from this story

**Do not ask inquisitive questions

On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said : The messenger of Allah said Part of someone's being a good Muslim is his leaving alone that which does not concern him. Hadith Nawawi No. 12


-- it is haraam to ask inquisitive questions
-- you may force your Muslim brother to lie
-- (as he does not want to answer the question)
-- when you spy for the kufaar it makes you become a kaafir yourself
-- they use the Hadith of Hatib ibn Abi Balta'ah

A Mujahid of the Battle of Badr, it was discovered that he had sent a secret letter to the Quraish telling of the Muslims movements; he begged for understanding explaining that he had only hoped the Quraysh tribe would help protect his family who were residing in Makkah; Umar ibn Khattab sought the Prophet's permission to kill Balta'ah, Muhammad said that it was unnecessary, as God may have forgiven all veterans of Badr

-- we refute the MADkhalis, when they use this Hadith :
-- He fought in Badr and Allah may have forgiven him
-- unlike other Sahabi his family did not have security
-- as he did not have any blood ties with the Quraysh.
-- the worst kaafir in the UK, is Abu Khadijah, not Cameron
-- why?
-- because these Saudi Salafis make it halal to spy on the Muslims
-- you go against the ijmaah of the ummah and say
-- that to spy on the kufaar is halal
-- Al Maida 5:51 tells you that it is haraam
-- as you give walaa to them ( the kufaar )

O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. (5:51)

-- they also slander prophet Yusuf, alayhe salam:
-- he didn’t support any kaafir regime, he followed the Shariah of Ibrahim
-- he didn’t compromise the Shariah of Ibrahim while in Egypt
-- the golden bowl is proof of this
-- Allah didn’t want the companions to question Muhammad
-- as the Jews questioned Musa

-106- BLACK MAGIC


"Black Magic" by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars: 6.29.11)



Download Audio

The definition of “magic:”
1. Whenever something happens in front of you that you can't explain
--if you can't explain it, ie turning a handkerchief into a rabbit

2. To subdue the jinns and use them to create mischief on the earth

The correct opinion is the 2nd opinion. Why?
--sometimes things happen in front you but you can't explain it
--this is called a TRICK not magic
--if we can't explain it, it might be a TRICK
--and we can't kill people for tricks, only magic

How do we decipher these?
--if they have contact w/ jinns, then it's classified as 'magic'
--w/o contact, it's classified as a 'trick'

The History of Magic

They followed what the Shayatin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaiman (Solomon). Sulaiman did not disbelieve, but the Shayatin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harût and Marût, (Al-Baqarah 2:102)

Babylon:

-- Allah tala sent 2 angels to the people of Iraq
--knowledge and sent as a test
--if you're given money and you use it for casinos or women
--you can't blame the money
--it's used for evil when used by evil people but righteous people
--will use it for righteous reasons
--Babylon was a province in Iraq
--the Jews took the knowledge to do bad things

…but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, "We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us). (Al-Baqarah 2:102)

--the two angels (Harût and Marût ) didn't teach anyone anything
--without 1st giving them a warning
--don't misappropriate the knowledge or you will become disbelievers

They followed what the Shayatin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaiman (Solomon). Sulaiman did not disbelieve, but the Shayatin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harût and Marût, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, "We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us).(Al-Baqarah 2:102)

It's not permissible for us to try to subdue the demons

--if the jinn wants to help you and you did not ask for it, it's permissible
--if a jinn lifts a car up off of you - you didn't do anything wrong

Why shouldn't we seek a jinns help?
--they don't work for free, they will ask for a favor
--they will ask you to make a sacrifice and ask you to call their name
--we're not permitted to call anyone else's name
--when sacrificing other than ALLAH SUBHAN'WATALA
--if we do it is a major shirk (taking you outside the fold of Islam)

Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal), for sure it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allah). (Al-An'am 6:121)


Allah tala told the Sahabahs they are not to eat meat killed when anyone's name was called other than HIS

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "A strong demon from the Jinn s came to me yesterday suddenly, so as to spoil my prayer, but Allah enabled me to overpower him, and so I caught him and intended to tie him to one of the pillars of the Mosque so that all of you might see him, but I remembered the invocation of my brother Solomon: 'And grant me a kingdom such as shall not belong to any other after me.' (38.35) so I let him go cursed." (Book #55 , Hadith #634S. Bukhari)

“WHOEVER GOES TO A SOOTHSAYER OR FORTUNE-TELLER AND BELIEVES WHAT HE SAYS HAS DISBELIEVED IN THAT WHICH WAS REVEALED TO MUHAMMAD.” (Abu Dawud in his Sunan with a Saheeh Isnaad)

Soothsayers Fortune Tellers and Palm Readers:

--we're not to believe in them or go to them
--these are kufr and shirk

Horoscopes:
--we're not to believe in these but weather forecasts are not shirk
--if the weather man says INSH'ALLAH
--it's not shirk to say 'good luck' if you believe the luck was written
-- Luck = Fortune
--if you believe it was predestined
--we can say,
--'GOOD LUCK TO YOU A WONDERFUL SIS ACCEPTED YOUR PROPOSAL'
--these palm readers and soothsayers are dangerous
--because they tell people they know the future

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "I possess no power of benefit or hurt to myself except as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghaib (unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings unto people who believe." (Al-A'raf 7:188)

They are trying to share in Allah's Rububiyyah

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "That is a word pertaining to truth which a jinn snatches (from the angels) and whispers into the ears of his friend (the soothsayers) who will then mix more than a hundred lies with it.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

We're not to WISH on shooting stars; they are used to burn up the shayteen
--purpose of stars are to guide us at night and beautify the skies and to burn up the shayteen (as missiles)

And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made such lamps (as) missiles to drive away the Shayatin (devils), and have prepared for them the torment of the blazing Fire. (Al-Mulk 67:5)

Muslims are not to wish upon stars; it is a bid'aah

The 7 Greatest Sins:
shirk, magic, murder, ribaa, rob the orphans, run away from battle, slander pious Muslimahs


“Keep away from the seven destructive sins!” “What are they, O Messenger of Allaah?” He answered, “Associating partners with Allaah; Practicing Sorcery; taking a life, which Allaah has made forbidden except for a just cause (according to Islaamic Law); eating Riba (usury) eating up an orphan’s wealth; fleeing from the battle field at the time of fighting (with the unbelievers); and accusing chaste women, who never think of anything that can touch their chastity and who are good believers, of fornication.” "The creation of these stars is for three purposes, i.e. as decoration of the sky, as missiles to hit the devils, and as signs to guide travelers. So, if anybody tries to find a different interpretation, he is mistaken and just wastes his efforts..." Bukhari Vol.4 Book 54 Ch.3 before No.421 p.282.

Allah's Messenger (P.B.UH) said "Whoever learns a part of astrology (drawing knowledge from stars) has learned a part of sorcery (magic). [Abu Dawud]

It is transmitted that the Prophet said: The penalty specified for the magician is a strike with the sword. Tirmidhi

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “ The hadd (prescribed punishment) for the practitioner of magic is a blow with the sword (i.e., execution). (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1460; al-Daaraqutni, 3/114; al-Haakim, 4/360; al-Bayhaqi, 8/136; see al-Silsilah al-Da’eefah, 3/641, No. 1446)


A man came to Madinah and said he can bring people back to life, so Umar dug a hole, buried the man and said let me see you bring yourself back to life

Hafsa ibn Umar Yahya related to me from Malik from Muhammad ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Sad ibn Zurara that he had heard that Hafsa, the wife of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, killed one of her slave-girls who had used sorcery against her. She was a mudabbara. Hafsa gave the order, and she was killed. Malik Muwatta, Book 43, Number 43.19.14

A slave girl worked black magic on the Prophet's wife, Hafsa
--and Hafsa said to kill her
--mudabbara = one who does black magic
--Ibn Umar chopped of her the slave girl's head
--when Umar was the caliph, he conquered Egypt, Persia,
--Jordan, Palestine and then he wrote letters to the provinces
--hunt down male and female magicians and chop off their heads!

Accusations of Magic:
--they hid books of magical formulas on his arsh
--so when he passed away, the took the books and said
--look what he had under his arsh!
--but he couldn't defend his own character
--see 2:102

The Jews slander the prophets
--not even the Rasool (saws) was spared
--they told him to make the moon split
--it split in front of his eyes
--but they didn't believe him and said he worked black magic
--see 54:1, 2

The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder (the people of Makkah requested Prophet Muhammad SAW to show them a miracle, so he showed them the splitting of the moon). (Al-Qamar 54:1)

And if they see a sign, they turn away, and say: "This is continuous magic." (Al-Qamar 54:2)


So, we see they accused Suleiman and they accused the Rasool (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A MIRCLE and MAGIC:
--similar in that what happened is extra-ordinary and abnormal

Miracles of the prophets are called mu'jiza
Miracles of the saints are called karamaat

The people of Mecca asked Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hira'h mountain. [Bukhari]

--a person becomes a saint when they draw near to Allah
--and they are blessed w/ miracles
--Umar stopped the pagan practice at the Nile River

Differences:
1. Miracles are from Allah but magic is from the shaitan
--(people who do magic subdue the jinns)
2. Miracles are useful and helpful but magic in most cases
--is to cause harm and mischief
3. Miracles took place by the hands of righteous people
--(prophets and saints)
--but magic takes place at the hands of evil people
--(the MOST evil people of society)

Why do we kill magicians?
--they cause the ummah to apostate from Islam

Who do we kill and why:
--if the person has contact w/ the jinns, kill him (because it's magic)
--if there's no contact w/ jinns, it is a trick so we do NOT kill them

1. Investigate the matter thoroughly
--Abu Hanifa said magic is only a fantasy
--but the other 3 Imams say it is a reality (this is what we follow)
--Harut and Marut said they were sent to bring knowledge so it's a reality

The entertainment of Hollywood/Bollywood
--glorify zina and homos-xuality and prostitution
--they also glorify black magic,
--ie the movies HARRY POTTER and LORD OF THE RINGS
--if we allow our children to watch these, our children are finished!
--the kufaar have been glorifying homos-xuality for years
--w/ cartoons, TELLE TUBBIES
--only jahil parents allow their parents to watch this cartoon
--so your kids become confused.com
--a movie INDECENT PROPOSAL was made to glorify adultery
--a movie PRETTY WOMAN glorified prostitution
--a movie HARRY POTTER was made to glorify black magic
--so many Muslim kids apostate from Islam

13 REASONS WHY PEOPLE DABBLE IN BLACK MAGIC

1. To gain power in the land, ie the Pharaoh
--see 79:23, 24

Then he gathered his people and cried aloud, (An-Nazi'at 79:23)
Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (An-Nazi'at 79:24)

[Iblis (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day they (the dead) will be resurrected." (Al-Hijr 15:36)

La hawla walaa quwata illah billah

2. They use magic to entertain people to earn a living

--such as birthday parties and on TV
--David Blain, David Copperfield (examples of magicians)
--Paul Daniels is another one and his license plate says MAGIC

3. They want to create mischief on the earth
4. Malice and they want to destroy the life of someone else
5. Envy

Say: "I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord of the daybreak, (Al-Falaq 113:1)

"From the evil of what He has created; (Al-Falaq 113:2)

"And from the evil of the darkening (night) as it comes with its darkness; (or the moon as it sets or goes away). (Al-Falaq 113:3)


--when people envy us for good things, they always resort to destroy us

"And from the evil of the witchcrafts when they blow in the knots, (Al-Falaq 113:4)

--the Jews of Madinah worked black magic
--long Hadith, so please do not post on screen right now:

'What material has he used?' The other replied, 'A comb, the hair gathered on it, and the outer skin of the pollen of the male date-palm.' The first asked, 'Where is that?' The other replied, 'It is in the well of Dharwan.' "

Narrated 'Aisha: Magic was worked on Allah's Apostle so that he used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not (Sufyan said: That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect)... (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 660)


Majnoon = mad person

Notice: Mu’tazilites do NOT believe this Hadith
--they say this Hadith insults the Rasool (saws)
--but the Hadith is Sahih
--they also don't believe Musa knocked the angel of death in the eye
--even if the Hadith is Sahih Bukhari

Masjid Al-Aqsa - The Desired Site of Musa (Moses) 29, Abu Hurayrah reports that the Prophet (saw) said, "The Angel of death was sent to Musa. When he came to Musa, Musa punched him on the eye. The Angel returned to Allah and said, "You sent me to a servant who does not want to die". Allah ordered the Angel, 'Return to him and tell him to put his hand on the back of an ox and for every hair that will come under it, he will be granted one year of life'. Musa asked, "O Lord! What will happen after that"? Allah replied, 'Then death'. Musa decided, let it be now'. Musa then requested Allah to let him die close to the Sacred Land (near Masjid Al-Aqsa) so much so that he would be at a distance of a stone's throw form it". Abu Hurayrah (ra) added, the Prophet (saw) then said, "If I were there, I would show you his grave below the red sand hill on the side of the road". (Bukhari)

“The angel of death was sent to Musa (alaihis salam). When he came, Musa gave him a black eye so he returned 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 to put his hand on the back of an ox and he will live a year for every hair that his hand covers.’ Musa said, ‘O Lord, then what?’ He said, ‘Then death.’ He said, ‘Then let it be now.’” [Bukhari]

Why did Musa punch the angel in the eye?

** He wanted his grave to be top secret
** He was afraid of death
** He wanted to die on a Holy piece of land **this is the most accurate opinion

Anyone who dies In Makkah or dies on Friday, you go to paradise and are saved from the punishment of the grave

6. Break up man from wife
--see Al=Baqarah 2:102
--they can't harm anyone by black magic except by Allah's will

but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah's Leave.(Al-Baqarah 2:102)

7. Make woman fall in love with you
--or man fall in love w/ a woman
--you might have a British passport and you go to Nigeria
--India, and such and a woman, you fall in love with her
--but she is not beautiful or pious
--men propose for 4 reasons: beauty, piety, nobility and wealth
--you might fall in love w/ someone who is shaitan:
-- black magic might be done on you

OCCULT SCIENCE:
--people advertise and call themselves SHAYKHS
--they all call themselves shaykhs, such audacity
--they advertise in newspapers all over the world
--the Khilafah would stop this because
--all heads would be cut off (of magicians)
--hudood (Islamic State capital punishment) / hadd (punishment)
--this is for Islamic State not for daar ul harb
--NOT for daar ul harb
--don’t make PANIC IN THE GAY COMMUNITY AS SHARIAH COMES TO LONDON
--GBH = grievous bodily harm
--you might charge your boyfriend/girlfriend [kufaar] w/ this accusation

8. They want to win court cases
--they advertise in newspapers,
--"we can help you win your court case" - "consider it done"

9. They want to secure a job
--"we give you a perfume to wear so you get a job
--or get a girl to accept proposal"
--they think they are MR FIX IT

10. Heal themselves of an ailment or excruciating pain
--sick people are insecure or in pain, they will make sadjah
--to the shaitan to get rid of the pain
--many women don't want to have a 2nd, 3rd child
--because the pain from the 1st baby
--women have told Shaikh this about themselves
--the magician says: I HAVE THE REMEDY FOR YOUR SICKNESS

11. Try to rid their bodies of jinns
--they use jinn to fight jinn and this is not permitted

12. to recover lost and stolen properties
--ie you have a party at your home and
--something is missing from your home, how do you find who took it?

Shaikh in Africa:
--1 USD bought him a plate of food
--so w/ 2000 USD you can save 2000 lives
--so men will ask a magician, WHO STOLE MY MONEY

13. They want to escape destiny
--so they go to magicians and ask, "is it good for me to travel on Monday?"
--these people are insecure: will there be a plane crash?

14. They want to solve murder mysteries
--Scotland Yard uses magicians

15. To find out if your partner is having an affair
16. To find out who are your enemies
(and what they plot for me?)
--world leaders have magicians working for them
--to find out who will topple their government
--when the magician tells them, the person (accused)
--disappears mysteriously
--some magicians lie
--Coup d'état = to overthrow

SYMPTOMS TO TELL IF A PERSON HAS BLACK MAGIC ON THEM:
1. they talk in their sleep
2. he walks in his sleep

--(they will even throw themselves from heights, tall buildings)
3. the person refuses to take a shower
4. the person has a huge appetite (shaitan is eating w/ them)
5. he dislikes the athaan
6. he dislikes to hear the Holy Qur'an
7. they utter statements of kufr, apostasy and heresy
8. they sleep a lot and are lazy
9. they have a lot of nocturnal emissions

--(jinn that possesses them tampers w/ their private parts)
--nocturnal = night time so nocturnal emissions are “wet dreams”

10. they hallucinate
11. they speak w/ a voice of their opposite gender

--ie man speaks w/ female voice
--this is when the magic is severe

HOW TO CURE YOURSELF OF BLACK MAGIC
1. Recite Surah Fatiha
2. Recite the 3 Quls
3. Recite Ayat Kursi (2:255)
4. Recite Al-Baqarah 2:285-286
5. Recite Surah Al Jinn
6. Recite the duaa:

"a'oothu bi kalimaatillaah at-taamma min sharri maa khalaq"


Recite Surah Fatiha: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, The Beneficent, the Merciful. Owner of the Day of Judgment, Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.

-- this is called shifaa / cure
-- the Jew who worked magic on the Prophet,
-- Labeeb ibn Aasim worked magic on Prophet Muhammad

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, ”Recite Surat Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu`awwidhatain (Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas) three times at dawn and dusk. It will suffice you in all respects.” [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi]. Riyad-us-Saliheen –No. 1456

The 3 Quls Surat Al-Ikhlas and Al-Mu`awwidhatain Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas

Allah revealed these two chapters (Surah Falaq and Surah Naas) consisting of eleven verses. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam recited a verse of these two Surahs a knot opened and thus upon recitation of the total eleven verses all the knots opened, and suddenly a burden-like heavy load was removed from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

-105- The Abrogated Evidences


Tafseer Surah Baqarah: The Abrogated Evidences
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

(morning dars: 6.29.11)



Download Audio

We are about to embark on a totally new subject:
a)abrogating verses
b)those which are abrogated

This topic is a source of controversy in the ummah:
so please listen attentively:

Allah ‘tala uses stages to abrogate verses

Ali, the caliph saw a man giving a speech in the masjid, he asked him, "Do you know those verses that were abrogated?" the man said, “No” so Ali told him to leave that masjid and not return, as he was destroyed and seeking to destroy others *

Al Baqarah 2:106 - Such of our revelation as We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but we bring (in place) one better or the like thereof. Knowest thou not that Allah is Able to do all things? (106)

-- there are scholars who claim that no abrogation took place
-- they claim that abrogation didn’t take place
-- as Allah is not indecisive.
-- they say that if you believe in abrogation
-- you are saying that Islam has weaknesses.
-- abrogation took place in Quran and also Sunnah


1. VISITING GRAVEYARDS by WOMEN:
-- in the early stages of Islam,
-- the prophet forbade the Muslims from visiting graveyards.
-- then the prophet told them now
-- you may visit the graveyards because they remind you of death

‘I used to prevent you from visiting the graves…[now] visit them, for verily it reminds you of the hereafter.’ Tirmidhi

-- when you debate with Shia,
-- they say that some parts of the Quran have been forgotten
-- they use 2:106 - we refute them with the same ayah
-- that Allah has willed that the verse was forgotten,
-- then He gave a verse which is better
-- so we are not at a disadvantage
-- you are allowed to visit the graves : but not women.

Thabit narrated that the Prophet (saws) cursed women who visit grave-yards often" [Sunan Ibn Majah:1574] MUSLIM agrees

-- reason women are not allowed to visit the graves:
-- they will not behave properly, they will wail and cry loudly
-- Aisha’s brother died, she visited his grave.
-- why did she visit the grave of her brother?
-- because, the prophet said Allah curses the women
-- who visit the graves OFTEN ( as a habit )
-- if you visit the grave as a one off:
-- you didn’t do anything wrong

"Allah has cursed women who visit graves," is understood. As for if they visit for contemplation, compassion, and seeking baraka by visiting the graves of the righteous, then it is not wrong if they are elderly. It is disliked if they are young [f: and there is fear of fitnah from their attending....] (Ibn Abidin, Minhat al-Khaliq Hashiyat al-Bahr al-Ra'iq, 2:210)

-- another abrogation that took place in Hadith (sunnah):
-- in early stages if a couple had sex,
-- but didn’t ejaculate, they didn’t have to make ghusl
-- then later on, even when the two parts met
-- without ejaculation - ghusl became compulsory

Allah's Messenger (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said that, "If one of you sits between her legs (of a woman) and penetrates her, Ghusl (bath) is obligatory." (Bukhari and Muslim) "Even if he does not ejaculate." (Muslim)

-- we have heard evidences from Hadith in regards to abrogation
-- what about evidences from the Quran
-- we have heard evidences from Hadith in regards to abrogation
-- what about evidences from the Quran

O ye who believe! Approach not prayers with a mind befogged, until ye can understand all that ye say, nor in a state of ceremonial impurity (except when traveling on the road), until after washing your whole body if ye are ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from offices of nature, or ye have been in contact with women and ye find no water, then take for yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands. For Allah doth blot out sins and forgive again and again. (Nisa 4:43)


-- many Sahabahs died whilst drinking

O ye who believe! Approach not prayers with a mind befogged, until ye can understand all that ye say (Nisa:43)

-- when the Sahabahs heard this ayah,
-- they were still drinking
-- they drank after Isha. and were sober by fajr
-- Hamza the prophets uncle drank a lot
-- there is a verse that abrogated this verse:

O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination? of Satan's handiwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper. (Al-Maida 5:90)

The people in whose heart is a disease
-- they continued to drink, even until today; they quote:

O ye who believe! Approach not prayers with a mind befogged, until ye can understand all that ye say,(Nisa 4:43)

-- we say to them, you are quoting an ayah which came down
-- in the early stages of Islam
-- and it is abrogated.
-- Allah said : Do not come near to alcohol:
-- much less to actually drink it. : Avoid it strictly

2. YOU GO YOUR WAY and I’LL GO MY WAY Al Kafiroon 109:6

"To you be your religion, and to me my religion (109:6)

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone (Al-Anfal 8:39)


-- this ayah has also been abrogated: with : Al Anfal 8:39

"To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Al-Kaafiroon 109:6)
--came down when they didn’t have an army, this was in the Makkan stage

Sahih Muslim (1:33) The Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah..."

-- people who drink alcohol, we have news for you:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar; “Whosoever drinks, alcohol even though he does not get intoxicated, as long as he has a drop of wine in his stomach and in his veins, his salah will not be accepted. If he dies while he is in that situation, he dies as an infidel. The salah of that who drinks alcohol and get intoxicated is not accepted for forty days and if he dies in that situation, he dies as an infidel.” (Nasai)

The salah of that who drinks alcohol and get intoxicated is not accepted for forty days and if he dies in that situation, he dies as an infidel.” (Nasai)


-- even though your salah is not accepted you still have to pray.

3. PUNISHMENT FOR COMMITTING ZINA An-Nisa 4:15

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)

-- another ayah which has been abrogated
-- In the early stages of Islam, a girl who committed zina
-- was put under house arrest
-- in the early stages this was the punishment:
-- then this law was abrogated
-- by Surah Noor 24:2

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 (Al-Noor 24:2)

In the early stages of Islam, there was no flogging,

-- then Allah opened a way for them
-- the new punishment of flogging
-- and being sent to another city for one year

The Prophet (saws) said, "No doubt I will judge between you according to Allah's Laws. The slave-girl and the sheep are to go back to you, and your son will get a hundred lashes and one year exile." He then addressed somebody (Hadrat Unais (r.a.)

-- those are some of the examples of the abrogated verses
-- you are not allowed to say Allah is indecisive
-- it is called "stages in legislation"
-- Allah knew the people were addicted to alcohol
-- He swt knew they were also weak
-- but when Allah knew the people became stronger in Islam (eeman)
-- He (swt) told them Not to come near it ( alcohol )

Whenever Allah's Apostle ordered the Muslims to do something, he used to order them deeds which were easy for them to do, Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 19

The Arabs were coming from a background of shirk : so the prophet feared they would worship the graves : he forbade them from visiting : then when the Muslims became strong in tawheed, he allowed them (as there was no longer fear of shirk)

Know you not that it is Allah to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth? And besides Allah you have neither any Wali (protector or guardian) nor any helper (2:107)

For verily, it was only the excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed [the nations] who were before you” (Agreed Upon) Hadith No. 9 from 40 Hadith


-- sometimes Allah didn’t mention some particular thing
-- but the Sahabah would ask the prophet about these things

Al-Baqarah 2:108 - Or would ye question your messenger as Moses was questioned aforetime? He who chooseth disbelief instead of faith, verily he hath gone astray from a plain road. (108)

Islamic etiquettes of asking questions :


A You are not allowed to ask a question when the answer will be given to you will cause you pain

O you who believe! Ask not about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. (Al-Ma'idah 5:101)

B When you ask a question: it should be with sincerity to seek knowledge

And they ask you concerning orphans. Say: "The best thing is to work honestly in their property, and if you mix your affairs with theirs, then they are your brothers. And Allâh knows him who means mischief (e.g. to swallow their property) from him who means good (e.g. to save their property). And if Allâh had wished, He could have put you into difficulties. Al-Baqarah 2:220


And they ask you concerning orphans. Say: "The best thing is to work honestly in their property, and if you mix your affairs with theirs, then they are your brothers. And Allâh knows him who means mischief (e.g. to swallow their property) from him who means good (e.g. to save their property). And if Allâh had wished, He could have put you into difficulties. Truly, Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise." (Al-Baqarah 2:220)

-- they were God-fearing and they didn't want to mistreat the orphans

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "The best house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are well treated. The worst house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are ill treated. I and the guardian of the orphan will be in the Garden like that," indicating his two fingers. [Bukhari]

Stay away from the seven destroyers." They said: O Messenger of Allah and what are they? He said: "Associating with Allah in worship, sorcery, the taking of a life which Allah has sanctified except rightfully, consuming interest, consuming the property of an orphan, fleeing on the day of intense battle and slandering innocent, unknowing, believing women." Muslim & Bukhari


They question thee (O Muhammad) concerning menstruation. Say: It is an illness, so let women alone at such times and go not in unto them till they are cleansed. And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you. Al-Baqarah 2:222

Then they asked the prophet about menstruating women: they migrated from Makkah, and now they saw the Jews how they treated their women while menstruating: So Allah revealed Al Baqarah 2:222


-- And when they have purified themselves
-- means ‘when they make ghusl’
-- when a woman finishes her menstruation
-- she must make ghusl,
-- if you have sex before she has made ghusl
-- you have committed haraam
-- the "modernist" says; "I use durex (condoms)
-- so we can have s-x while my wife is menstruating".
-- they will tell you that they must change Islam
-- to accommodate modern times (audhubillah)

And when you ask (his wives) for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen that is purer for your hearts and for their hearts. And it is not (right) for you that you should annoy Allâh's Messenger, nor that you should ever marry his wives after him (his death). Verily! With Allâh that shall be an enormity. (Al-Ahzab 33:53)

C You are not allowed to ask a question to make yourself familiar with the opposite gender

-- you cannot ask questions with "ulterior motives

On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said : The messenger of Allah said Part of someone's being a good Muslim is his leaving alone that which does not concern him. Hadith Nawawi No. 12

D It is haraam to ask inquisitive questions

-- people ask questions, like.. how much do you earn. was your wife a virgin*
-- excessive questioning is not allowed, you will only make a burden on yourselves
-- the Jews asked Allah: about the cow: what kind of cow,
--what color cow, they then became a burden on themselves

The Prophet saws said that Allah will not ever let him enter Paradise who cares little who shares his wife's privacy.

Al-Mumtahina 60:10 abrogated this practice: O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them (60:10)

-104- The 6 Gifts from Allah SWT to Muhammad SAW


"The 6 Gifts from Allah to Muhammad"
by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

(evening dars: 6.28.11)





Download Audio

Some Hadith says 5 things were given to Rasulallah (saws) but we will look at the one that contains

6 gifts to Rasulallah (saws) from Allah subhan’watala

1) Amazing ability to express himself

-- short sentences that were comprehensive
--they had great meanings
--Rasulallah didn’t like long speeches not did Umar ra
--long khutbah are not liked because after prayers,
--people need to go about their businesses
--Prophet who came close to his ability in
--expression to Muhammad saws was Dawud as
--Some speeches are as magic
--A person might be preaching,
--and because of his eloquence, the kufr sounds as haqq

On that Allah's Apostle said. ‘Some eloquent speech is as effective as magic.' (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 662)

Shaikh-Faisal: erudite

--at times Sahabah would come to Rasulallah with a dispute
--and the one who is more eloquent in speech (some are erudite)
--might take away the right of his brother because of it

Muslim Book 018, Number 4247: Umm Salama reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You bring to me, for (judgment) your disputes, some of you perhaps being more eloquent in their plea than others, so I give judgment on their behalf according to what I hear from them. (Bear in mind, in my judgment) if I slice off anything for him from the right of his brother, he should not accept that, for I sliced off for him a portion from the Hell.

--when you take away the right of your brother in dunya,
--you shall pay it back to him in
--Yawm al Qiyamah with your good deeds
--for every right must be returned that Day
--it is a great gift to be eloquent in speech
--eloquence can be used for dawah or you might
--as well use it for evil
--we have that phrase here too: the gift of the gab
--person who is eloquent and erudite should be
--used to bring people to Quran wa Sunnah
--people are attracted to an eloquent speaker
--especially at Jumu'ah during Khutbah
--at times, a woman is happy with a poor man who is "fun"

2) Blessed with fear
--1 month before he reached the battlefield to meet the kuffar
--suicide is rife amongst the kuffar
--this blessing is not limited to Rasulallah and Sahabah
--but his Ummah have also inherited this blessing
--kuffar are terrified of the Mujahideen
--the kuffar used to tremble with fear when
--the news reached them of his march to the battlefield
--every generation that came after Rasulallah(saws)
--were inheritors of this blessing
--State of the Art Weaponry--they have the
--most sophisticated weapons in the world
--yet the kuffar still seek political asylum
--and commit suicide due to fear

And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60)

--we are ordered to prepare against the kuffar to the best of our abilities
--to terrorize them, they are ALLAH's enemy and ours

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60)

YUSUF ALI translation:

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Al-Anfal 8:60)

YUSUF ALI's translation is the accurate one

ALLAH knows the secret enemies
--undercover; but we do not know them
--for they are hypocrites,
--so we believe what ALLAH has told us in Quran

Turhiboona >>> TO strike terror
using the word "threaten" is wrong


--8:60, Turhiboona - to strike terror, not threatened
--when people translate Quran, they tend to lie on many occasions
--Allah created Adam of black mud:

Verily We created man of potter's clay of black mud altered, (Al-Hijr 15:26)

Shaikh-Faisal: hama=black mud altered
Jamila Johns (Dr. Bilal Philips wife), learned Quran on her own
--because she didn’t want to be at the mercy of other
-not all translators accurately translate what ALLAH has revealed

YUSUF ALI TRANSLATION: We created man from sounding clay,
--from mud moulded into shape; (Al- Hijr 15:26)

DR MOHSIN'S TRANSLATION: And indeed, We created man from dried (sounding) clay of altered mud. (15:26)

And indeed, We created man from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. (Al-Hijr 15:26)


--if you do not know Arabic,
--you might be getting the wrong translation
--of the meaning of the Quran

MUHAMMAD AND CHESS
-- he didn't say chess is haraam
-- backgammon is haraam
-- Author who translated Sahih Muslim, said chess was haraam
-- Rasulallah never said so
-- shatranj=chess
-- Hadith was mistranslated
-- nard=backgammon
-- shatranj is chess
-- many mistranslations in Quran, we have been aware of them

Sayyiduna Burayda (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: Whosoever plays with backgammon is as though he dipped his hands in the flesh and blood of a swine?. (Sahih Muslim, No. 2260).

--chess is not haraam - Rasulallah saws never said so, you are lying on him
--even if kuffar have better weapons, they are petrified of us

1. Amazing ability to speak
2. Fear (those weapons are of no avail)


The unbelievers spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the path of Allah and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell.? (8:36)

--the wealth they spend will not avail them in anything
--it will be a source of anguish and
--they shall be humiliated at the hands of the mujahideen,
--and then enter the fire
--ALLAH promised the Mujahideen victory

3) The whole world was a masjid and purification
--you may pray all over the world except in 6 places

The 6 places you’re forbidden to pray:
1) toilet (magicians pray in toilet) (don’t answer salaams in toilet)
2) graveyard
3) where garbage is dumped
4) where animals are tied up
5) in the middle of busy streets
6) on top of Ka'ba


-- Maliki madhab doesn’t allow us to pray janaza after burial
-- scholars differ about praying janaza
-- over someone who has already been buried
-- Maliki do not allow
-- but the Hanbalis allow, because of this Hadith
-- Hanbali madhab allow it because of the Hadith of Rasulallah
-- praying over the woman who used to clean the masjid
-- shaikh asked his shaikhs,
-- they preferred the Maliki opinion on this
-- the prophet prayed over the black woman who used to
-- sweep the masjid even after she was committed to the grave
-- Maliki doesn’t allow it because people might commit shirk

STORY OF MUHAMMAD saws praying over the dead woman is here Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Number 0220

--if they belong to ASWJ, and they didn’t commit shirk,
--they can pray for that person not to that person
--till today, the Hanbalis carry this type of janaza

He (PBUH) said, "Why did you not inform me?'' (It seemed as if) they (Companions) considered the matter insignificant. Then he (PBUH) said, "Show me her (or his) grave.'' When it was shown to him, he offered (Janaza-funeral) prayer over it and said, ""These graves cover those in them with darkness, and Allah illumines them for the inmates as a result of my supplication for them". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

--Imam Ahmed memorized 1 million Hadiths with Isnaad
--he used that Hadith to support his claim
--if such a janaza is prayed (provided the person was pious),
--it is allowed for us to do so
--if a brother is pious and he offers a lift (ride by car)
--then she can accept this offer, but if he is evil person,
--then she must not accept the offer
--the prophet offered a lift to asma on the back of his camel,
--but she refused, because her husband was harsh with her..
--she knew it would upset him
--the Rasulallah offered to give Asma bint Abu Bakr a ride
--she refused because of his jealousy

Regardless, this Hadith makes me feel so “envious” of Asma Bint Abi Bakr because she had the honor of having none other than the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) stop what he was doing out of concern for her and offer her a ride home on his camel. Let us not forget another key point here that Asma was the daughter of the Prophet’s best friend and close companion, Abu Bakr and the older sister of his wife, Aisha [Agreed]

--if you see in a dream that you are praying on top of the kaaba,
--this is a bad dream.
--if you see yourself praying on top of kaba,
--its a bad dream

Regardless, this Hadith makes me feel so “envious” of Asma Bint Abi Bakr because she had the honor of having none other than the Prophet of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) stop what he was doing out of concern for her and offer her a ride home on his camel. AGREED UPON

--the world was made purification for the Muslims
--means: you are allowed to make Tayammum
--world is purification so you may perform Tayammum
--Tayammum is used to replace wudu and even ghusl:
--striking your hands on the earth and wiping over body
--some Sahabahs were on a journey, the man had a wet dream
--he had a cut in his skull
--Sahabah were on journey, a man had a crack on skull,
--he asked if he could make Tayammum : they told him NO
--he must make ghusl with water..
--the water went into his skull and he died
--Rasulallah was furious and said
--"You have killed him, may ALLAH kill you."

4) Ghaminah (booty of war) was made halaal
--the fourth special gift:
--the booty was made halal for the ummah of Muhammad
--precious nations were not allowed to take it after victory

Sulaiman as had 1000 wives and he impregnated them and had the intention to send his sons to Jihaad but he didn’t say "InshaAllah" and his children were born with deformities Nor say of anything, "I shall be sure to do so and so tomorrow"? (23) Without adding, "So please Allah!" And call thy Lord to mind when thou forgettest, and say "I hope that my Lord will guide me ever closer (even) than this to the right road." (24) (Al-Kahf 18-23-24)

And never say of anything, "I shall do such and such thing tomorrow." (23) Except (with the saying), "If Allâh will!" And remember your Lord when you forget and say: "It may be that my Lord guides me unto a nearer way of truth than this." (24) (Al-Kahf 18-23-24)


--we must say inshaAllah before we decide to undertake a matter

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said: “All the earth is a Masjid (place of worship) except graveyards and toilets.” [Sunan Abu Dawood (Eng. Trans.) vol.1, p.125, no.492. “Pray in your houses, and do not make them graveyards.” [Saheeh al-Bukhari (Eng. trans.) vol.2, p.156, no.280, Saheeh Muslim (Eng. trans.) vol.1, p.376, no.1704]

The Prophet) Solomon son of (the Prophet) David said, “Tonight I will go round (i.e. have sexual relations with) one hundred women (my wives) everyone of whom will deliver a male child who will fight in Allah’s Cause.” On that an Angel said to him, “Say: ‘If Allah will.’ ” But Solomon did not say it and forgot to say it. Then he had sexual relations with them but none of them delivered any child except one who delivered a half person. The Prophet said, “If Solomon had said: ‘If Allah will,’ Allah would have fulfilled his (above) desire and that saying would have made him more hopeful.” Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 169


Sulaiman and his 100 wives

--if she said INSHALLAH, ALLAH would have fulfilled his desire
--all previous prophets performed Jihaad Fi Sabilillah
--we are allowed to keep the booty and they were not
--this is relevant : to prove that all the prophets did jihad,
--to the extent that Sulaiman said
--he would impregnate 100 women for boys for jihad
--Rasulallah saws was sent with the sword till Yawm al Qiyamah
--the provision of Rasulallah saws was under his spear

Narrates by Ibn Omar: "the Prophet said: "I was sent by the sword proceeding the judgment day and my livelihood is in the shadow of my spear and humiliation and submission are on those who disobey me" [Musnad Imam Ahmed (Vol.2, p.50)]

--Rasulallah had nine wives,
--he provided for them through the ghaminah
--Sahabah were enriched through the ghaminah,
--so do the Khilafah that came after them
--the Khilafah didn’t like farming,
--farming is left to Jews and Christians,
--we conquer and take everything
--Muslim men are soldiers not farmers
--Haroon ar-Rasheed had such a vast kingdom
--he used to do Jihaad one year
--Hajj the following and so forth
--vast was his kingdom,
--he would tell the rain to fall wherever it wanted
--for all these territories belonged to him
--at night, the Sahabah were worshippers,
--at daytime, they were soldiers
--they were eager to take the message of Islam
--because the Rasul said so
--in Farewell Pilgrimage,
--they went to the four corners of the world
--they took his command literally
--Sahabah believed with yaqeen that
--whatever Rasulallah
--promised them would come to pass
--Suraaqa ibn Malik was chasing Rasulallah because he wanted
--the promised reward by Quraish
--he fell off from his horse 3 times,
--and he then took Shahadah
--for he knew this incident was from ALLAH

"By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, the following was his will (Prophet's will) to his followers: It is incumbent upon those who are present to convey this information to those who are absent Beware don't renegade (as) disbelievers (turn into infidels) after me, STRIKING THE NECKS (cutting the throats) of one another.'" Bukhari, Vol 2, book 26, No.795

--tell your kaafir neighbour about Islam
--if there is any potential
--if you have a kaafir neighbour
--and he wants to know about Islam
--then it is compulsory upon you to tell him about Islam .
--but do not do so if he doesn’t show any interest

Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them) (Al-Ala 87:9)

--we must give admonition if it might bring benefit
--some kuffar do not deserve Dawah, some have sealed hearts
--and kufr will not come out and Imaan will not enter

Allah hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing And on their eyes is a veil great is the penalty they (incur). (Baqarah 2:7)

Allah has sealed their hearts and hearings

-- and over their eyes is a covering
-- they will be in great torment in the hereafter
-- the preferred method is not dawah,
-- it is jihad fi sabeelillah .
-- the manhaj of spreading Islam is Jihaad Fi Sabbilillah
-- because Allah said: Al Anfal 8:39

And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do. (8:39)
--fitnah in this ayah means SHIRK
--we must fight them until fitna (in 8:39 means shirk)
--is eradicated and it abrogates Lakum di kunum wal ya deen
--this ayah abrogates: Al Kafirun 109:6

To you be your Way, and to me mine.
(Al-Kafiroon 109:6)


Al Kafirun 109:6 was for when the Muslims had no army
--jihad was not yet ordained

Sahih Muslim (1:33) The Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah..."

Abdullah bin Omar narrated that the messenger of Allah said: "I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed is the messenger of Allah and until they perform the prayers and pay the zakat, and if they do so they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they do acts that are punishable] in accordance with Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah the Almighty." Related by Bukhari and Muslim.

--Rasulallah made dawah in Makkah 13 years
--and only 70 accepted Islam
--but after Jihaad was performed, 2000 took Shahadah
--might is right

Sahih Muslim (1:33) The Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah..."

--booty is a blessing to Ummah as a whole
--many of us have financial difficulties
--because we have abandoned Jihaad
--many people want to open a business, marry two women
--your mother needs an operation you don’t have any money
--why?
--because you have abandoned jihad : you have no booty to collect
--livelihood is under the shadow of the sword, spear

Narrated Ibn 'Umar that the Prophet (SA) said, "My livelihood is under the shade of my spear,(1) and he who disobeys my orders will be humiliated by paying Jizya" Bukhari

The Prophet (saw) "Whoever dies and he does not fight nor does he ever intend to fight (prepares for it) then he dies on a branch of hypocrisy" (Muslim)


-- if you don’t prepare to fight nor have the intention for it
-- you will die on a branch of nifaaq
-- if you do not want to eradicate kufr, you agree with it
-- British became rich because they stole diamonds
-- and / or riches from India and Africa
-- how do you think the British became rich?
-- they went all over the world and fought and colonized.
-- the British, French, Dutch, Portuguese
-- and Spanish all had their colonies
-- and Europeans went around the world
-- and took all they could and enriched themselves
-- and before they give you independence they give you
-- such problems with neighboring countries,
-- so you will fight with them forever
-- they also make you fight you neighbour until Yawm al Qiyamah

5) Shafa'ah (the great intercession)
--Adam cannot because he ate from haraam tree
--Nuh asked a question he shouldn’t have-about his son
--Ibrahim cannot because he told 3 "lies"
--Musa cannot because he killed a man
--Isa cannot because he claims not to be worthy
--but Rasulallah will intercede for us,
--and he didn’t not use his du'a
--for any other thing but saved it to intercede for us
--on Yawm al Qiyamah
--every question has its answer in Quran

And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly. 8:60

So they will come to me and say, ‘O Muhammad! You are Allah’s Apostle and the last of the prophets, and Allah forgave your early and late sins. (Please) intercede for us with your Lord. Don’t you see in what state we are?”

--Hitler, Firawn, Qarun were disasters, they had no insight
--might with no insight is not right

…your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, ... and so is the (Hell) Fire Sahih Bukhari Hadith # 6488


--ALLAH is al Hakim al-Aziz***
--ALLAH is al-Aziz al-Hakim***

6) Every prophet was sent to a single nation but Rasulallah was sent to mankind and jinn (al Alamin)

Each Messenger was sent to his own nation. I was sent to all mankind (Sahih al-Bukhari, 'Jihad,' 122)

In part …Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. 2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. 3. The Booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection). 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind. Bukhari, book 7, No 331
