Q&A Tafseer Surah Muhammad [Part4]


Tafseer Surah Muhammad [Part4]

Question 1: Calling people to sharia in darul harb, is this a matter of difference of opinion or is this a matter of aqeedah?
Answer 1:
Calling people to shariah in darul harb is a matter of manhaj so this person is a deviant in regards to manhaj. The sunnah is to call to tauheed in darul harb. The Qur’an has makki surahs and madani surahs. Surah ikhlass is a makki surah and is talking about tauheed. Why? Because in darul harb the sunnah is to call to tauheed. The shariah surahs were revealed in medina. so to invite people to shariah in darul harb is a mistake in regards to manhaj. How can you invite someone to shariah who does not believe in Allah?

Say (O Muhammad (peace be upon him): "he is Allah, (the) one. (al-ikhlas 112:1)
"Allah-us-samad (the self-sufficient master, whom all creatures need, he neither eats nor drinks). (al-ikhlas 112:2)
"He begets not, nor was he begotten; (al-ikhlas 112:3)
"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto him." (al-ikhlas 112:4)

Narrated by Ibn Abbas: when the prophet sent Muadh to Yemen, he said to him,"you are going to a nation from the people of the scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite them, be the tauhid of Allah. If they learn that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them, five prayers to be offered in one day and one night. And if they pray, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them zakat of their properties and it is to be taken from the rich among them and given to the poor. And if they agree to that, then take from them zakat but avoid the best property of the people." [sahih bukhari, vol 9, book 93, hadith #469]

The Rasul (saw) sent Mu'adh to Yemen and asked him to invite people to tauheed. He told him you will find the people of the book there. so call them to tauheed first.

If the first thing to be revealed was: 'do not drink alcoholic drinks.' people would have said, 'we will never leave alcoholic drinks,' and if there had been revealed, 'do not commit illegal sexual intercourse, 'they would have said, 'we will never give up illegal sexual intercourse.' [sahih bukhari, vol 6, book 61, hadith #515]

Aisha said if the first thing Allah revealed was to stop drinking etc people would have rebelled, but Allah revealed tauheed first. If you cut the hands of the thief in the uk, it will be front page news and the kuffaar will be happy and they will use it to instill islamaphobia.

The sunnah of Allah is to call to tauheed in darul harb.

Question 2: As you say we don’t follow the majority i have a question about Ibn Masud (ra) saying the Jama’a is even if it is one person is it better to shun the innovators and keep to yourself or should we cooperate in good with them and avoid the bad whereas we avoid the bidah but we help them call people back to Islam?
Answer 2:
Is better for you to establish your own jama'a. Do not work with the people of bid'ah because of the hadith.

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)

Anybody who gives honor to a bid'atee is helping to destroy Islam. You need to make baraa to the bid'atee. However if the Muslims call for jihad, you are allowed to take the bid'atee to light because the Muslims will unite with the Christians in the last days to fight. So if we can do this then we can fight with the bid'atee because they are not kaafirs. They will come out of hellfire with the intercession. if you should call for jihad today majority of the people will be asha 'ira.

Question 3: Salaam. With regards to the sign of Arabs competing to construct tall buildings, is there significance on the mention of them being bare footed?
Answer 3:
Yes, the significance of them being barefooted is, they used to be poor and now not only did they find shoes but they are competing to build the tallest buildings. So this is the significance of mentioning it. That’s what the hadith says. They were destitute and now they are rich and because of this Allah said already you have seen some of the signs of judgment day.

But some of its portents (indications and signs) have already come, and when it (actually) is on them, how can they benefit then by their reminder? (muhammad 47:18)

Question 4: Please repeat why the 3 times the trumpet will be blown.
Answer 4:
The trumpet shall be blown into 3 times not 2 times
1. To cause horror and terror
2. For everybody to die
3. For resurrection

And when the trumpet is blown the 2nd time everybody will die except Allah.

Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish. (ar-rahman 55:26)
And the face of your lord full of majesty and honour will abide forever. (ar-rahman 55:27)

Judgment day will be in Jerusalem not Mount Arafat.

Question 5: Is it enough to ignore a kaffir when they wish you happy holidays or do we have to tell them it is not our holiday.
Answer 5:
It is enough to ignore them. You are not allowed to say merry Christmas to a kaafir. If you do this you become a kaafir. Why? Because you are endorsing their aqeeda that Allah gave birth to a son and you are not allowed to go for Christmas dinners. Except if you intend to mend family ties and give them dawah. If they kill a sheep or goat for the festival and you eat that meat. This is haram because it is a pagan festival.

Question 6: Sheikh where do you think sharia countries are and am sure you are going to tell me Saudis, but why are the Saudis so disrespecting and also they don't let women drive a car?
Answer 6:
I don’t think anybody will say there is shariah in Saudi Arabia because they have riba banks and taking riba is like having sex with your mother in the belly of the kabah.

“Riba consists of seventy-three kinds of evil, and the least of them is like having sex with one's own mother".
[ibn majah , al-hakim and others]

The potential shariah states are the places the Taaifa Mansoora are where the mujahideen are waging jihad.

Question 7: How do i bank in uk when all banks give or take interest? ibb claims to be Islam bank but it's under another kaffir bank.
Answer 7: Yes that the problem. All the Muslim banks operate under kaafir banks. You can’t keep your money at home because it will be stolen. You should take the interest and give it out for sadaqqah but you don’t get barakah for it. If you leave it there they will use it to make bombs and kill you.

Question 8: Can you ask if one will have problems listening to these lectures from Saudi or uae?
Answer 8:
If you have a computer in your home and privacy then you can listen to pal talk. How can the kuffaar control what you listen to? We were told not to spy on one another.

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

This is why the authentic aqeeda is widespread in the internet because the kuffaar can’t control it.

Question 9: Assalam alaikum sheikh, i took the means by going to Birmingham for a meeting but the sister did not agreed to marry
me and i going through a lot of trials so what should i do now?
Answer 9:
Why don’t you be like Bilal. If he proposes to a girl and she says yes he says Alhamdulillah. If she says no he says Allahu akbar. Sometimes you love a thing in life but it is not good for you or you hate a thing which is good for you. Accept qadar of Allah and be like Bilal and move on don’t be like the kuffaar.

Bilal (ra) went with his brother to propose to the father of a muslimah and said, “i am Bilal and this is my brother; two Abyssinian slaves. We were astray Allah guided us. We were slaves, Allah liberated us. if you give your daughter in my hand then Alhamdulillah, if you decline then Allah is sufficient.” [hayat-us-sahabah]

They have fatal attraction this is mentioned in the Qur’an. The story of Cain and Abel, fatal attraction means i want you for myself, and if i can’t have you no man can have you.

Question 10: Where should i study Islam abroad? Medina is this good? I don’t want to be a salafi.
Answer 10:
Go to Ummul Quraa in Makkah or Muhammed Ibn Saud in Riyadh. Avoid medina because it is Saudi salafi inclined.
