Bismillah...

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, and this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that HE will indeed reckon your deeds.

ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn Abd al-Muttalib (Holy Prophet Muhammad's uncle) shall henceforth be waived.

Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under Allah's trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to.

All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor does a black have any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my SUNNAH, and if you follow these you will never go astray.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O ALLAH, that I have conveyed your message to your people.”
[The last sermon of the Prophet (SAW) also known as Khutbatul Wada’. It is mentioned in almost all books of Hadith.Sahih Al-Bukhari refer to the sermon and quoted part of it. See Al-Bukhari, Hadith 1623, 1626, 6361) Sahih of Imam Muslim also refers to this sermon in Hadith number 98. Imam al-Tirmidhi has mentioned this sermon in Hadith nos. 1628, 2046, 2085. Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal has given us the longest and perhaps the most complete version of this sermon in his Masnud, Hadith no. 19774]

- even the kuffaar pay much attention to it
- this is because the Rasul (SAW) talked about all aspects of life
- it was short but very comprehensive

IT WAS AN AMAZING KHUTBAH
- you will wonder how he was able to express himself so well
- this is because he was given amazing ability to speak

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six respects: I have been given words which are concise but comprehensive in meaning; I have been helped by terror (in the hearts of enemies): spoils have been made lawful to me: the earth has been made for me clean and a place of worship; I have been sent to all mankind and the line of prophets is closed with me. [Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Hadith #1062]

WE ARE LIVING IN A WORLD OF TYRANNY AND IN JUSTICE
- this is present both in kufrdom and Islam
- the people are living their lives not in accordance with the khutbah
- 95% are heedless of it
- this khutbah is important to mankind generally
- it was delivered two years after the conquest of Makkah

CONTENT OF THE KHUTBA

"O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY...


- it began by asking people to lend him an attentive ear
- for he (SAW) might not be with them after this
- you should not speak while the Imam is giving a khutbah
- some women speak in Jumu'ah
- hence their Jumu'ah is nullified

It was narrated that Abu’l-Darda’ said: The Prophet (SAW) sat on the minbar and addressed the people, and he recited a verse. Ubayy ibn Ka’b was next to me, so I said to him: “O Ubayy, when was this verse revealed?” But he refused to speak to me, so I asked him again and he refused to speak to me, until the Prophet (SAW) came down (from the minbar). Then Ubayy said to me: “You have gained nothing from your Jumu’ah except idle talk.” When the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) had finished (the prayer), I went to him and told him (what had happened). He said: “Ubayy was right. When you hear your imam speaking, then keep quiet and listen attentively until he has finished.” (Narrated by Ahmad 20780, Ibn Maajah 1111)

Narrated By Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle (SAW) said, "When the Imam is delivering the Khutba, and you ask your companion to keep quiet and listen, then no doubt you have done an evil act." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 13, Hadith #056]

- if the Rasul (SAW) would give khutbah
- the Sahabahs (RA) would be still and listen attentively
- as if birds are sitting on their heads because they had taqwa
- when you have taqwa you don’t talk while the khutbah is on
- the hypocrites of Madina
- when they used to sit and listen to Muhammad (SAW) they used to ask what did he just say

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

...Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY...


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 [in the whole of the world (Al-Anfal 8:39)

Umar and Abu Bakr acted upon this
- when Umar was Caliph he was able to conquer nations
- Syria, Jordan, Palestine, the likes of these countries were conquered by him
- 40,000 Sahabahs attended the sermon of Umar

Conquest of Spain, 92 AH
- they were all reverts
- "the sea is behind you, the enemy is in front of you"
- the Rasul said if you are 12,000 strong with correct Aqeedah
- no army can defeat you, if its for the sake of Allah

Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, “The best number of sahabah is four, the best number of men in expedition is four hundred, the best number of men in armies is four thousand, and twelve thousand will not be defeated because of poor numbers.” [Tirmidhi 1561, Ahmed 2682, Abu Dawud 2611]

- if you are not fighting for the sake of Allah you have no purpose
- 12,000 soldiers conquered an entire nation
- these people did not mix their Islam with haraam
- a 17 year old led this army
- Constantinople - was a roman empire
- it was conquered by Muhammad Al-Fati, he was only 21 and he destroyed their empire
- things with taqwa become possible
- these Muslims took final words of the Rasul (SAW) literally
- many Sahabah when they heard it, they jumped on their camels and anywhere their horse stopped
- they would jump off and go and give khutbah/da'wah to the people
- graves of the Sahabahs are everywhere, even the likes of Pakistan
- al-ansari - he looked after the Rasul (SAW) his grave is in Istanbul
- they took the message of the prophet (SAW) literally
- they took the message to whom was absent

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 [in the whole of the world.(Al-Anfal 8:39)

- we are living under fitna
- men marry men
- men marry animals
- the worst shirk is to dismantle the Shariah and govern the people with democratic system
- on many occasions Allah told you not to follow the majority

And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie. (Al-An'am 6:116)

- democracy gives you baby killers and racists
- Bush and Blair
- Adolf Hitler
- this is what democracy gives us

Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikûn (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty. (Al-Baqarah 2:105)

- Allah told us the kuffar don’t want good to come to us from our Lord
- the best way to spread Islam is by jihad not by da'wah
- you invite them to your house to drink tea and eat biscuits and beg them to stop believing Jesus is god
- through jihad the Rasul (SAW) enemies embraced Islam

...O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you...

- 9th dhul hijjah is a sacred month
- this kuthbah was delivered in a sacred month on a sacred place
- the place was mount Arafat

SIX SACRED POSSESSIONS
1. Life
2. Wealth
3. Honour
4. Lineage
5. Aql
6. Deen

- the Rasul (SAW) said the same you count 9th dhul hijjah sacred
- so is the life and honour of your Muslim brother
- when you are entrusted with good give it back
- most Muslims today are con artists and cheats
- when sheikh was in the UK they told him he’s better off buying a car off a white kaafir than a Muslim

Abu Hurayra (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "Anyone who carries arms against us is not one of us. Anyone who cheats us is not one of us." [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #182]

- men marry women consummate with them and then refuse to give her dowry
- they promise the girls an apple in the sky then they refuse

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)

- Muslims don’t have Shariah because they can’t be trusted
- Muslims campaign against the Shariah
- you say there's no jihad without a caliph
- or you hide behind covenant of security
- the blood of your brother is sacred
- if you hurt a person they may take revenge

...Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you...

- if you rip off people, backbit them, you will have to give them your deeds on the day of judgement
- guard your pious deeds
- your deeds is the only thing Allah will accept on the day of judgement

Saalim reported from his father that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said “A Muslim is a Muslim’s brother. He does not oppress him and he does not let him perish. And if anyone attends to the need of his brother then Allah attends to his need. And if anyone relieves from a Muslim a hardship then Allah removes from him one of his hardships on the day of resurrection. And if anyone veils a Muslim (his faults) then Allah will veil him on the day of Resurrection (his faults) [Tirmidhi 1431, Bukhari 2442, Ahmed 5650]

...Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that HE will indeed reckon your deeds. ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived...

DAY OF JUDGEMENT

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)

- a man will run away from his mother
- and care only for himself
- your mother will ask you for one of your Ramadans
- but you will say; “no, what if I need it?”
- you will run away from your Akhee, your kids
- so harm no one in the dunya

Narrated By 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: The Prophet said, "A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue or his hands. And a Muhajir (an emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 76, Hadith #491]

- this hadith does not include the wicked scholar
- if you find good, say Alhamdullilah
- if you find evil, blame no one but yourself

Jabir reported: I heard Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: None of you would get into Paradise because of his good deeds alone, and he would not be rescued from Fire, not even I, but because of the Mercy of Allah. [Sahih Muslim, Book 39, Hadith #6769]

- we can’t go to paradise just by good deeds
- we can only enter paradise by the mercy of Allah
- people are sinful
- especially ones that live in darul harb
- we sin by night and by day
- remember that you will indeed meet your Lord

O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah and give up what remains (due to you) from Riba (usury) (from now onward), if you are (really) believers. (Al-Baqarah 2:278)

And if you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allah and His Messenger but if you repent, you shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly (by asking more than your capital sums), and you shall not be dealt with unjustly (by receiving less than your capital sums). (Al-Baqarah 2:279)

"Riba consists of seventy-three kinds of evil, and the least of them is like having sex with one's own mother". [Ibn Majah, Vol. 3, p337, #2274 and Mustadrak Al-Hakim, Vol. 2, p43, #2259]

...Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things...

- Shaytan will lead you astray in-directly
- the Rasul (SAW) warned you about the web of Shaytan
- he starts off with small things until he gets you where he wants you
- little by little he tells you to go further, the Shaytan is very clever
- he can get you to kill people
- he never comes with big things, he comes with the small things
- so be careful of them

...O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you...


And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses, etc.) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect, etc.) to what is reasonable, but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Baqarah 2:228)

And say: "Truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism or this Qur'an or Jihad against polytheists) has come and Batil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism, etc.) has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish." (Al-Isra 17:81)

It has been narrated by Amr Ibn Akhwas. He relates that it was commanded by the Prophet (SAW) "Be kind towards your women. Take heed! You have rights over your women and your women also have rights over you. Their rights over you are that you provide food and clothing for them in good faith. Your rights over them are that they do not allow and nor do they give permission, for people to trespass into your house whose presence you dislike." [Tirmidhi 1166, Ibn e Majah 1851]

Many Muslim girls in the Muslim world are forced to marry men they don’t love
- even though Allah made it haraam
- yet many Muslims force their daughters to marry against their wills
- some send their wives to work and they sit like parasites

O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse. And live with them honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good. (An-Nisa 4:19)

Many Muslim women apostate because of this
- you are so tyrannical
- do you read the farewell speech
- these women are an amanah to you
- not your private property

They belong to Allah, AMATULLAH
- they are servants of Allah
- if you look after them then you fulfil the trust

Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, "The most perfect of believers in belief is the best of them in character. The best of you are those who are the best to their women." [Tirmidhi 1165, Abu Dawud 4682]

How can the kuffaar say Muslims hate women?
- when the Rasul said this in his farewell speech
- you even put it in your wikipedia
- he said to men to fear Allah and take care of women

So how can you say Islam is a religion of MISOGYNIST?
- why do you lie

If you abuse women you fail in your trust
- you abuse them financially by ripping them off
- you refuse to work
- you don’t want them to get married

Many fathers oppress their daughters by refusing them to get married
-some abuse their wives verbally by calling them names

Some kill them and I saw many of these men in Belmarsh
- that’s physical abuse

...If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness...

You need to feed your wives
- give them money for shopping
- and if you don’t do this you lose your conjugal rights
- this is why many men become homosexuals

...Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste...

Rasul said it is your right that they obey you

...O People, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to...


This is because Allah will look at Salah first on the day of judgement
- the difference between a Muslim and kaafir is Salah
- fast in the month of Ramadan
- give out Zakah

And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid], and spend it not in the Way of Allah, -announce unto them a painful torment. (At-Tawbah 9:34)

"Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a bald-headed poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.' (Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Number 486.)

- this is the recompense for those who didn’t pay Zakah, so he reminded us about it
- Abu Bakr fought those who refused to pay Zakah
- they were buried in the graveyard of the kuffaar
- and their women taken as slaves and concubines

But if they repent, perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give Zakat, then they are your brethren in religion. (In this way) We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail for a people who know. (At-Tawbah 9:11)

The Rasul said perform your hajj if you are able to do so
- Hajj is a duty made compulsory on you by Allah

In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one's conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah], then Allah stands not in need of any of the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns). (Aali Imran 3:97)

- those of you who think it is not important then Allah is not in need of you
- every Muslim is a brother of another Muslim
- our brotherhood is based on la ilaha ilala

FREE MASONS
- they worship the Shaytan
- they claim to be brothers

...All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood...

- nationalist believe they are brothers of each other "my black brother"
- what about the black Christian?

SABRA AND SHATILA MASSACRE :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabra_and_Shatila_massacre

- the Arab Christians in Lebanon help Jews to kill Muslims
- so what do you mean my Arab brother?

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)

- Allah says it is ONLY the believers that are brothers
- the prophet (SAW) told you this in fare well khutbah

...Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood...

- we don’t believe in "my black brother" brotherhood
- the Rasul (SAW) also said we are all equal
- as we are all from Bani Adam
- this is what the Rasul said in the farewell khutbah
- this is remove racism from the Ummah
- racism is one of the things from jahiliyyah the Ummah will not give up

Narrated Jubair ibn Mut’im: The Messenger of Allah (saws), said: "He is not one us who calls for `Asabiyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for `Asabiyah or who dies for `Asabiyah." [Abu Dawud]

“There are four matters of jaahiliyyah that exist among my ummah and they will not give them up: boasting about one’s forefathers, casting aspersions upon people’s lineages, seeking rain by the stars and wailing for the dead.” [Sahîh Muslim (934)]

Brevlis prefer Hindus and Sikhs over black Muslims
- racism makes you become a kaafir
- when you love Hindus and Sikh over your Muslim brothers and sisters
- if you are a racist you belong to the madhab of Iblees
- the Rasul (SAW) knew racism would linger amongst the Ummah
- Taqwa is what makes a person superior to you

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)

- this ayah eradicates all the man made isms and schisms i.e racism, nationalism etc
- a women is better than a man if she prays and he doesn’t pray
- you can’t marry someone you are no compatible with i.e. Deen and also Aqeedah
- e.g. they believe in democratic system and you do not
- tie your camel

One day Allah's Messenger, noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, "Why don't you tie down your camel?" The Bedouin answered, "I placed my trust in Allah." At that, the Prophet, said, "Tie your camel and place your trust in Allah" [Tirmidhi]

ABU LAHAB & ABU JAHAL
- they where Arab, he spoke arabic
- he was from the most noble tribe, but he’s in hell fire

Perish the two hands of Abû Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! (Al-Masad 111:1)

- they looked down on Bilal (RA)
- they looked down on people better than them
- the Rasul heard Bilal (RA) in paradise

Narrated By Abu Huraira: At the time of the Fajr prayer the Prophet asked Bilal, "Tell me of the best deed you did after embracing Islam, for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise." Bilal replied, "I did not do anything worth mentioning except that whenever I performed ablution during the day or night, I prayed after that ablution as much as was written for me." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 21, Hadith #250]

- to laugh at someone is haraam

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one's brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: "O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zalimûn (wrong-doers, etc.). (Al-Hujurat 49:11)

...Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone...

- some men even in there 60's are still chasing women

The prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said: “The son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about five things: how he lived his life, and how he utilized his youth, with what means did he earn his wealth, how did he spend his wealth, and what did he do with his knowledge.” [Good hadith reported by Imam At-Tirmithi]

- when you stand in front of Allah you have to give account for everything!
- All the pleasures of life, even eating and drinking everything you dabble in!
- when you stand in front of Allah there will be no translator

Narrated By 'Adi bin Hatim: The Prophet said, "There will be none among you but will be talked to by Allah on the Day of Resurrection, without there being an interpreter between him and Him (Allah). He will look and see nothing ahead of him, and then he will look (again for the second time) in front of him, and the (Hell) Fire will confront him. So, whoever among you can save himself from the Fire, should do so even with one half of a date (to give in charity)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 76, Hadith #547]

Then, on that Day, you shall be asked about the delight[] (you indulged in, in this world)! (At-Takathur 102:8)

- if you do any good Allah will show it to you

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

- if you do bad Allah will also show that to you

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

- this is the most profound ayah of the Qur'an
- so when you stand in front of Allah you will give account for all of your deeds
- the prophet said do not stray from the path of righteousness
- here the prophet (SAW) was talking about bid'ah

Narrated Ibn Al-Musaiyab: The companions of the Prophet said, "Some men from my companions will come to my Lake-Fount and they will be driven away from it, and I will say, 'O Lord, my companions!' It will be said, 'You have no knowledge of what they innovated after you left: they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam). Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 586

- the prophet (SAW) will tell these people to get away from him on the day of judgement
- when they try to drink from his fountain

...O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN...

- any faith after Islam is a cult

JIM JONES: http://www.infoplease.com/spot/jonestown1.html
- he tried to make his own religion
- but he failed
- he gave his people Kool-Aid to drink
- and a lot of them died
-" dooms day cult"

GULAM AHMED
- claimed to be a prophet
- but he is a liar
- because there is no prophet after Muhammad (SAW)

Muhammad (SAW) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last (end) of the Prophets. And Allah is Ever All¬Aware of everything. (Al-Ahzab 33:40)

- Muhammad (SAW) warned us about the fake prophets after him
- all these people who claim are liars and they are false

...There will be among my people thirty great liars each of them asserting that he is (Allah's) prophet, whereas I am the Seal of the Prophets after whom (me) there will be no prophet; and a section of my people will continue to hold to the truth (will continue to dominate) and will not be injured by those who oppose them, till Allah's command comes." [Abu Dawud, Book 30, Hadith #4239]

It is reported from Abu Hurairah (RA), that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said: “My likeness and the likeness of the prophets before me is the likeness of a person who built a house, made it beautiful and made it complete, except the place of a stone in the corner. So people began to go round and to wonder at him and say: Why have you not placed this stone? He (i.e., the Holy Prophet) said: I am that stone and I am Khatam an-Nabiyyin (the Seal of the Prophets)". (Al-Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab al-Manaqib, ch. Khatam an-Nabiyyin; Al-Muslim; Tirmidhi, Abwab al-Manaqib, etc

...I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my example, the SUNNAH and if you follow these you will never go astray...

- if you follow the Qur’an and Sunnah you will never go astray
- but you need to have correct Tafseer
- when a person is a munafiq they always listen to dodgy people
- they would never listen to someone like Anwar al Awlaki (rh) or Muhammad al Maqdasi
- the Rasul (SAW) said hang on to Qur’an and Sunnah
- you are only allowed to take your Deen from Mujahideen

Irbad ibn Sariyah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) delivered a sermon to them one day after the Salah of Fajr: an eloquent admonition that brought tears to the eyes and fear to the heart. A man submitted, ‘This is the advice of one taking leave. What do you advice us, O Messenger of Allah (SAW)?” He said, “I instruct you to observe Taqwa, to listen and to obey even if a black slave (rules you). Those of you who survive will see many discords. Beware; refrain from innovations in religion, for that is error. So, he of you who encounters that must adhere to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs. All of you should hold that firmly with your teeth.” [Tirmidhi 2685, Ahmed 17145, Abu Dawud 4607, Ibn Majah 42]

- the Saudi Salafis in Yemen called the Mujahideen to help them against the shi’ites
- the Mujahideen said you've called us khawaarij for many years and then you call us to help you
- this happened recently

...All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O ALLAH, that I have conveyed your message to your people".

- the Rasul (SAW) did not hide anything from his farewell khutbah
- it was a short khutbah
- because the Rasul (SAW) did no like long speeches
- many majids have long khuthbas and many of the people are sleeping throughout them
- this is not the sunnah

19 POINTS COVERED BY THE RASUL (SAW) IN THE KHUTBAH

6. ECONOMIC INJUSTICE (RIBAA)

...ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity...

- ribaa has 73 branches

"Riba has seventy segments, the least serious being equivalent to a man committing adultery with his own mother." [Ibn Majah, Vol. 3, p337, #2274 and Mustadrak Al-Hakim, Vol. 2, p43, #2259]

7. BEWARE OF SHAYTAN AND HIS WEB
- he starts off with the small things

9. IMPORTANCE OF UPHOLDING THE SALAH
- difference between a Muslim and a kaafir is Salah

...O People, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH, say your five daily prayers (Salah),...

Narrated 'Abdullah ibn Shaqiq al-'Aqeely, "The companions of Muhammad (SAW), did not consider the abandonment of any act, with the exception of prayer, as being disbelief (kufr)." (Tirmizhi and al-Hakim, who said it met al-Bukahri's and Muslim's conditions)

10. IMPORTANCE OF FASTING IN RAMADAN

...fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to...

11. IMPORTANCE OF PAYING THE ZAKAH

"Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a bald-headed poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.' (Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Number 486.)

O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islam (by obeying all the rules and regulations of the Islamic religion) and follow not the footsteps of Shaitan (Satan). Verily! He is to you a plain enemy (Al-Baqarah 2:208)

12. ISLAMIC BROTHERHOOD AND SISTERHOOD
- based on the foundation of La ilaha ilallah Muhammadur Rasulullah

...All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action...

13. IMPORTANCE OF MAKING HAJJ
- don’t waste your money and save up for hajj

In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one's conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah], then Allah stands not in need of any of the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns). (Aali Imran 3:97)

14. RACIAL EQUALITY
- there is no superiority
- don’t prefer a race over another

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. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

- some Muslims are so races
- nobody kills Muslims like the white kufaar
- the concept of brotherhood is in the heart
- when a Brelvis starts to practice Islam, he is a racist

...Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves...

[Iblis (Satan)] said: "I am better than he, You created me from fire, and You created him from clay." (Sad 38:76)

- The Rasul (SAW) warned us of these points mentioned

15. APOSTASY AND BID’A

16. I AM THE LAST PROPHET AND ISLAM IS THE LAST FAITH

...O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand words which I convey to you...

17. HOLD FAST TO QURAN AND SUNNAH
- you will never go astray if you do this

...I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my example, the SUNNAH and if you follow these you will never go astray...

18. THOSE WHO ARE PRESENT, TAKE THIS MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO ARE ABSENT

...All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again;...
