Q&A Principles of Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamma’h


Principles of Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamma’h

Question 1: Shaykh when we speak about the shirk of obedience such as Rasoolullah (saw) giving the tafseer of the people of the book taking their priest and rabbis as lords besides Allah. What do we mean about obeying shaykh is it just doing what you are told or believing it or all of these things?
Answer 1:
This is when you follow a person who makes up his own religion. You become a kafir in this case. You are not allowed to follow him.

Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of allah and the sunnah of his messenger (saw). Whoever does this is a kaafir who must be fought until he returns to the rule of allah and his messenger. so no one other than he should rule neither Minorly or majorly". Tafseer ibn kathir, vol 2, p.67

So whosoever abandons the wise shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad ibn abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated shariah for judgment, he becomes a kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the sharia of Muhammad (saw). whosoever does this has become a kaafir by the ijma of the Muslims. Ibn kathir, al-bidayah wan-nihayah, vol 13, p119

Question 2: Can we take the good (eg. fiqh) from wicked scholars or those with dodgy aqeeda?
Answer 2:
Shaitans tell you to take from them fiqh and then aqeedah, this is called sequential persuasion.

Who whispers in the breasts of mankind, (an-nas 114:5)
"Of jinns and men." (an-nas 114:6)

When you take aqeedah from them, you have gone astray.

Question 3: Asalaamualaikum sheikh, in Africa whenever a sheikh is making an ablution his followers grasp the water and drink it or wash their face with it believing They going to get baraqah from that. Is this allowed in Islam?
Answer 3:
What they are doing is not shirk, but it is excessiveness in their love of the pious ones.

Question 4: how can we take sides with the blood tasty crusaders against Iran, while they believe in Allah and his rasul (saw)? The only problem is that they have wrong aqeedah.
Answer 4:
The Iranians have death squads in Iraq and are killing the Muslims. They are worse than the Christians and Jews.

Question 5: What is the ahkam of a daee scholar who permits going to taghoot court by saying there is no shariah and you are just getting your right?
Answer 5:
Takfir cannot be made immediately. He has to be taught first.

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

While 'allama al-shinqiti-may Allah be merciful with him-has said: to commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in his worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah’s system or law other than Allah’s law (sharia) and He who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. (adwa' al-bayan, 7:162)
