Q&A Principles of Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamma'h [Part2]


Principles of Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamma'h [Part2]

Question 1: can you ask the sheikh with regards to his statement about the Muslim selling things that are haraam in a supermarket to a kafir? What about if it's a Muslim that is buying those things, is it still halal?
Answer 1:
If he was a real Muslim he won’t have bought them.

Question 2: Shaykh am I wrong for making takfeer on a muslim who says the Prophets are sons of Allah when you tell him this is wrong he says I don't mean literally I mean it allegorically and he defends it by saying Allah only told us not to use it because some people might get confused by it and he says the Jews use this word they didn't mean it literally they meant a righteous person when you tell him not to say it because Allah commanded it and show him hujjah such as 9:30 and 5:18).
Answer 2: One of the principles of ASWJ is when a person makes an ambiguous statement we ask him to clarify what he means before we make takfeer on him. Takfeer might have been harsh on this person. Approach him and make amends. Also he was wrong to have made such a statement because he provoked you. The statement was kufr and Christianity but he did not say it literally so sort out your differences. It is a bid'ah in aqeeda to say the prophets are sons of Allah. We say Allah begets none and nor was He begotten.

Question 3: Assalamu alaikum, what is preventing Mullah Omar or Sh. Al Zawahiri from becoming the khalifah now?
Answer 3:
They have not taken over the whole country.

Those (Muslim rulers) who, if We give them power in the land, (they) order for Iqamat-as-Salat. [i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational Salat (prayers) (the males in mosques)], to pay the Zakat and they enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that Islam has forbidden) [i.e. they make the Qur'an as the law of their country in all the spheres of life]. And with Allah rests the end of (all) matters (of creatures). (Al-Hajj 22:41)

You can’t be on the run and be a khalif. So the Muslim ruler has to have tamkeen on the earth. You need land to establish your caliphate and if you are arrested and in prison you have lost your caliphate. It is bid'ah to give your bay'a to a man in darul harb to be the caliph. The seat of caliphate has to be from darul islam not from darul harb.

Question 4: The hadith that says: there will be a disorder and during that time the man who sits is better than the one who stands, the one who stands is better than the one who walks, the one who walks is better than the one who runs, What does this hadith mean?
Answer 4: The hadith is a strong hadith. It means that when there is outbreak of fitnah the best place to be is inside your home.

Abu Hurairah said, The Prophet said, There will come a time of afflictions when one who sits will be better than one who stands; one who stands will be better than one who walks; and one who walks will be better than one who runs. Whoever exposes himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it. (Bukhari and Muslim)

It means don’t run towards fitnah but run away from it.

Those who give respect to a bid'ati (innovator in Religion) surely will be counted as a helper of destroying Islam. (Mishkat Sharif, p.31) (From The Virtues of Sunnah and the evils of Bid'ah in Islam by Mufti Sayyid 'Abd al-Rahim Sahib Lajpuri)

You are not allowed to give honour to a bid'atee. They are the source of fitnah in the ummah and the fitnah is in regards to creed. Everyman in the last days will be pleased with his creed. The Qadiyaani are happy with their creed and so are the Burelvis, Saudi salafi.

Question 5: Salaam Shaikh, i've heard you refer to bin-baaz as the Sheikh OF Bin Baaz. What does the 'OF' mean ?
Answer 5:
Shaikh of Bin Baaz referred to Muhammad ibn Ibrahim. Shaikh was referring to him when he said shaikh of Bin Baaz.

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