We stopped at AYAH 80


Whether you (O Muhammad SAW) ask forgiveness for them (hypocrites) or ask not forgiveness for them … (and even) if you ask seventy times for their forgiveness … Allah will not forgive them, because they have disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW). And Allah guides not those people who are Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:80)

In order for you to be forgiven you have to be a believer
-so if you go to a Janazah you beg Allah to forgive the person
-and then make dua for those living

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِحَيِّنَا وَمَيِّتِنَا ، وَشَاهِدِنَا وَغَائِبِنَا ، وَصَغِيرِنَا وَكَبِيرِنَا ، وَذَكَرِنَا وَأُنْثَانَا ، اللَّهُمَّ مَنْ أَحْيَيْتَهُ مِنَّا فَأَحْيِهِ عَلَى الإِسْلاَمِ ، وَمَنْ تَوَفَّيْتَهُ مِنَّا فَتَوَفَّهُ عَلَى الإِيمَانِ ، اللَّهُمَّ لاَ تَحْرِمْنَا أَجْرَهُ ، وَلاَ تُضِلَّنَا بَعْدَهُ

It was narrated that Abu Huraira (RA) said: 'When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) offered the funeral prayer he would say: "Allahummaghfir lihayyina wa mayyitina, wa shahidina wa gha'ibina, wa saghirina wa kabirina, wa dhakarina wa unthana. Allahumma man ahyaitahu minna faahyihi 'alal-Islam, wa man tawaffaytahu minna fa tawaffahu 'alal-eemaan. Allahumma la tahrimna ajrahu wa la tudillana ba'dah" (“O Allah, forgive our living and our dead, those who are present and those who are absent, our young and our old, our males and our females. O Allah, whomever of us You cause to live, let him live in Islam, and whomever of us You cause to die, let him die (in a state of) faith. O Allah do not deprive us of his reward, and do not let us go astray after him)”. [Sunan Ibn Majah (Vol. 2, pg.467) No. 1498 and Musnad Ahmad (Vol. 2, pg. 368) No. 8795]

-you beg Allah to forgive those alive and the dead
-but it is not acceptable to make this dua at a funeral of a Christian
-so Allah will never forgive those that disbelieve, even if the prophet should make dua for them to be forgiven
-even if we make dua 70 times for them to be forgiven

The prophet's uncle died a kaafir and the prophet did not ask Allah to forgive him
-because Allah said

It is not (proper) for the Prophet and those who believe to ask Allah's Forgiveness for the Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) even though they be of kin, after it has become clear to them that they are the dwellers of the Fire (because they died in a state of disbelief). (At-Tawbah 9:113)

-it is not proper to seek forgiveness for the polytheist even if they are your kith and kin

Ibn 'Abbas reported: The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said: Among the inhabitants of the Fire Abu Talib would have the least suffering, and he would be wearing two shoes (of Fire) which would boil his brain. [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #0413]

Narrated By Al-Abbas bin 'Abdul Muttalib: That he said to the Prophet "You have not been of any avail to your uncle (Abu Talib) (though) by Allah, he used to protect you and used to become angry on your behalf." The Prophet said, "He is in a shallow fire, and had It not been for me, he would have been in the bottom of the (Hell) Fire." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 58, Hadith #222]

Who told you that you can beg for forgiveness for those that die as kaafirs?
-Allah is saying do not ask Me to forgive them
-this ayah is for all disbelievers including the people of the book

-the prophet told a Jew
-get back for we do not seek help from a mushrik
-this is because they worship their rabbis
-who make halal haram and haram halal

It has been narrated on the authority of 'Aisha, wife of the Holy Prophet (SAW), who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) set out for Badr. When he reached Harrat-ul-Wabara (a place four miles from Medina) a man met him who was known for his valour and courage. The Companions of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) were pleased to see him. He said: I have come so that I may follow you and get a share from the booty. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to him: Do you believe in Allah and His Apostle? He said: No. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: Go back, I will not seek help from a Mushrik (polytheist). He went on until we reached Shajara, where the man met him again. He asked him the same question again and the man gave him the same answer. He said: Go back. I will not seek help from a Mushrik. The man returned and overtook him at Baida'? He asked him as he had asked previously: Do you believe in Allah and His Apostle? The man said: Yes. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to him: Then come along with us. [Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Hadith #4472]

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah),...(At-Tawbah 9:31)

You think shirk is only bowing down to idols?

Imam Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Jarir At-Tabari recorded a Hadith via several chains of narration, from 'Adi bin Hatim (RA), who became a Christian during the time of Jahiliyya. When the call of the Messenger of Allah reached his area, 'Adi ran away to Ash-Sham, and his sister and several of his people were captured. The Messenger of Allah freed his sister and gave her gifts. So she went to her brother and encouraged him to become Muslim and to go to the Messenger of Allah. 'Adi, who was one of the chiefs of his people (the tribe of Tai') and whose father, Hatim At-Ta’i, was known for his generosity, went to Al-Madinah. When the people announced his arrival, 'Adi went to the Messenger of Allah wearing a silver cross around his neck. The Messenger of Allah recited this Ayah; They took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah. 'Adi commented, "I said, ‘They did not worship them.’" The Prophet said, ((Yes they did. They (rabbis and monks) prohibited the allowed for them (Christians and Jews) and allowed the prohibited, and they obeyed them. This is how they worshiped them.)) … They took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah… that the Christians and Jews obeyed their monks and rabbis in whatever they allowed or prohibited for them…" (Tafsir Ibn Kathir (Eng Abridged), First Edition: May 2000], Volume 4, pp. 409-410)

-this is just an aspect of shirk
-if a man makes up his own religion

-if you have pigs in a pen and feed them on bag feeds and say the pork is halal
-but if you allow them to tarry freely and say the pork is haraam
-if I should pass this dodgy fatwa and you follow me, then you have committed shirk
-my shirk is called the shirk of legislating and you are committing the shirk of obedience

The prophet told the Jew to get back because they worship their rabbis
-the rabbis tell them to charge the gentiles interest, but not to charge it to their fellow Jews

The Jews wrote the Talmud
-and they claim this book is better than the Torah, the book of Allah
-in the Talmud is the statement Jesus is a bastard


-and the Jews sing this statement
-but even with this, Christians love Jews to the maximum, this is hypocrisy
-and as a result Allah dismissed them as the worst of created things

Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6)

-I got into trouble because of this ayah
-in Belmarsh prison

So when you have relatives who die as pagans
-do not waste your time begging Allah to forgive them
-if the rasul (SAW) was not allowed to beg for forgiveness for his uncle
-what makes you think you will be granted the permission?

So Allah said whether you seek forgiveness for them 70 times or not, I will not forgive them
-so why not read this ayah and your Aqeedah and stop thinking you can make dua for them

You also need to learn the things that make someone become a kaafir
-do not think because you are inside Islam you are fine

-who told you that you are inside the fold?
-what if you believe in democracy?
-what if you do not practise al walaa wal baraa? taking sides with the kuffaar like the MADkhalis


Those who stayed away (from Tabuk expedition) rejoiced in their staying behind the Messenger of Allah; they hated to strive and fight with their properties and their lives in the Cause of Allah, and they said: "March not forth in the heat." Say: "The Fire of Hell is more intense in heat", if only they could understand! (At-Tawbah 9:81)

One day I heard a kaafir say to a sister
-‘it is summer time in London, are not you hot (in the Hijab)?’
-she said: ‘the heat of the hellfire is hotter!’
-so always remember this ayah when people criticise the hijab

So these munafiqeen that did not go for the Tabuk expedition
-they said they have wealth to take care of and family to protect

They also said there are Syrian women where the prophet is going
-Syria, Morocco, Algeria are from the Roman Empire
-they are whites and not Arabs so if we go they will be fitna for us
-because these girls are very pretty

Allah said you have already fallen into hypocrisy
-the fitna of hypocrisy

They gave excuse about their wealth, wives back home, the heat and pretty girls
-and so they did not go for the expedition

Allah said tell them that the heat of hellfire is hotter, but they will never understand
-because a munafiq will never have the knowledge of Islam and a beautiful character
-and if Allah Loves you He gives you the right Aqeedah

If Allah desires good for someone He bestows on him understanding of the Deen (Bukhari, Vol 9, no 415)

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “Two characterstics cannot combine in a hypocrite: good character and an understanding of religion.” [Reported by Tirmidhi 2693]


So let them laugh a little and (they will) cry much as a recompense of what they used to earn (by committing sins). (At-Tawbah 9:82)

Allah said so let them mock and jeer because in the hereafter they will be punished
-this ayah is similar to Surah 83:29-36

Verily! (During the worldly life) those who committed crimes used to laugh at those who believed. (Al-Mutaffifin 83:29)

And whenever they passed by them, used to wink one to another (in mockery); (Al-Mutaffifin 83:30)

And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting; (Al-Mutaffifin 83:31)

And when they saw them, they said: "Verily! These have indeed gone astray!" (Al-Mutaffifin 83:32)

But they (disbelievers, sinners) had not been sent as watchers over them (the believers). (Al-Mutaffifin 83:33)

But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe will laugh at the disbelievers. (Al-Mutaffifin 83:34)

On (high) thrones, looking (at all things). (Al-Mutaffifin 83:35)

Are not the disbelievers paid (fully) for what they used to do? (Al-Mutaffifin 83:36)

So the criminals used to ridicule the believers
-they used to wink at them sarcastically
-they would return to their families jesting and laughing
-e.g. I was down town today and I saw a ninja, this would be referring to a niqabi

And they used to say these people are dalloon
-how can you be dressing up like this in this time
-you are not millennium compatible

But Allah did not keep you as a watcher over the believers
-and the believers will rejoice on the day of judgement

This verse is telling you Qur'an resembles Qur'an
-ayah 82 of Surah Taubah and the ayahs in Surah 83
-so those who laugh last laugh the best


If Allah brings you back to a party of them (the hypocrites), and they ask your permission to go out (to fight), say: "Never shall you go out with me, nor fight an enemy with me; you agreed to sit inactive on the first occasion, then you sit (now) with those who lag behind." (At-Tawbah 9:83)

Allah is telling you if the munafiqeen come to be taken to the battlefield
-do not take them with you because they have an ulterior motive
-if the enemy is weak they will want to fight
-but if it is a strong enemy they will refuse to fight

The hypocrites laughed at the Muslims when the left for Umrah
-saying that Abu Sufyan will slaughter them
-because they were travelling with only knives to slaughter their sacrifice
-but the prophet returned with a 10-year treaty

Then the battle of Khaybar came, the hypocrites said they want to fight this time
-because Khaybar was a very rich fortress and they wanted to share in the booty
-but the prophet sent them back and said only those that were at Hudaibiyya will fight
-the hypocrites said they were jealous of them that is why they refusing to take them
-but it was Allah who told the rasul not to take them, the hypocrites are very cheeky

So the hypocrites will always give excuse not to fight
-like they did at the time of the prophet, they only want to fight if the enemy is weak
-and if there will be booty, so Allah said to tell them we can not take you

We do not want quantity, but quality
-what makes you think you are frontline material?
Allah said

Had they marched out with you, they would have added to you nothing except disorder, and they would have hurried about in your midst (spreading corruption) and sowing sedition among you, and there are some among you who would have listened to them. And Allah is the All-Knower of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:47)

-if they march with you they will cause fitna in your midst
-and bring about disorder in the ranks of the army
-they will turn the mujahideen against the Ameer
-they will ask for food, complain about the sun, weapons etc.
-it is called sowing the seeds, seeds of fitna, mutiny and sedition
-and some people will listen to them, these are the unsuspecting Muslims
-not all Muslims are sincere and some are sincerely wrong
-like some Soofis and MADkhalis caught up in these webs

We studied The Sealed Nectar and we talked about the battle of Uhud
-300 people turned back with Abdullah ibn Ubayy because he spread mutiny in the battlefield
-and made the prophet left with only 700 Sahabah to fight the kuffaar

So Allah is telling you if you take the hypocrites
-they will just cause fitna

The night of Tabuk expedition at al-Aqaba
-12 men tried to frighten the camel of the prophet, so that he will fall off his camel and die
-these people were hypocrites who wanted to crown Abdullah ibn Ubayy as the leader of Medina
-they were wearing mask but the Sahabah still recognised them
-so even if you are in your car hiding we can still recognise you
-the hypocrites always change their cars
-they chose night time to frighten the camel of the prophet
-Allah asked us to seek refuge from the night

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)

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

"And from the evil of the envier when he envies." (Al-Falaq 113:5)

-they tried to frighten the camel of the prophet
-so that it will throw him off the precipice and the prophet would die

This story is to prove to you that not everyone in the frontline is sincere
-the MI5, CIA etc. all send their spies to the frontline, so you have fake mujahideen
-this is why we studied the sealed nectar because history repeats itself

They wanted to kill the prophet to crown Abdullah ibn Ubayy as the leader
-so they plot and Allah plans, but Allah is the best of planners

And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus)], and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners. (Aali Imran 3:54)

-so their plot failed and did not work

Even here on Paltalk you can not have everyone as admin, some turn admin against admin
-and they copy and paste conversations of people, you have to make baraa from such
-because they seek to sow the seeds of fitna


And never (O Muhammad SAW) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allah and His Messenger SAW). (At-Tawbah 9:84)

This ayah is very important because we have to study Asbab al-Nuzul

lbn Umar (RA) narrated: Abdullah son of Abdullah ibn Ubayy came to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) when his father died, and said, ‘Give me your shirt that I may shroud him in it, and offer his funeral Salah and seek forgiveness for him.” So, he gave him his shirt and said, “When you are over (with preparations), call me.” When he intended to offer the Salah, Umar pulled him, saying, “Has not Allah forbidden us to pray over the hypocrites?” He said, “I am between two options either to seek forgiveness for them or not to seek forgiveness for them”, and he offered Salah over him. So Allah revealed. "And never offer a prayer on any one of them who dies, and do not stand by his grave." (9:84) [Bukhari 1229, Muslim 2774, Tirmidhi 3109, Ahmed 4680, Nisai 1899,1523]

When Abdullah ibn Ubayy died, the same man who slandered Aisha
-so the prophet stood over his grave to pray Janazah over him
-Umar pulled his shirt not to do so, but the prophet said I will seek forgiveness for him 71 times

This man was a big munafiq before the prophet came to Medina
-he was called King Salool, but this was taken away when the prophet migrated
-so he carried a permanent vendetta against the prophet
-he tried to disgrace the prophet by slandering Aisha
-and Allah revealed an ayah to say it was a big lie (ifk)

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (An-Nur 24:11)

So when the prophet stood to pray over him
-Allah revealed this ayah to say he was wrong
-he should not have prayed over him

Umar was right 4 times
-and so the prophet said if there should be a prophet after me
-it would be Umar because he did not compromise his Deen

Uqbah ibn Aamir (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If there were to be a Prophet after me then he would be Umar ibn Al-Khattab.” [Ahmed 17410]

So when the Shi'ites say Ali should have been the caliph
-quote this hadith to them

...What is your opinion. Ibn Khattab? He said: Messenger of Allah. I do not hold the same opinion as Abu Bakr. I am of the opinion that you should hand them over to us so that we may cut off their heads. Hand over 'Aqil to 'Ali that he may cut off his head, and hand over such and such relative to me that I may but off his head... (Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Hadith #4360)

It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)

Narrated By 'Umar: The wives of the Prophet out of their jealousy, backed each other against the Prophet, so I said to them, "It may be, if he divorced you all, that Allah will give him, instead of you wives better than you." So this Verse was revealed. (66.5) [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #438]


-you are not allowed to pray Janazah over them, if you do so you become a munafiq yourself
-Allah said

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)

2. A SPY
-there is ijmaa among the scholars that if you spy against the ummah
-you become a kaafir

-e.g. Salih al Fawzaan his hypocrisy is so clear



e.g. Abu Khadijah the hujjah was established against him

Abu Khadeejah: "As for Babar, then this man is an extremist deviant innovator who should not be aided. As for the other person, then I do not know her."


-they believe it is halal to snitch on the Muslims
-they brag and boast about spying for the MI5 because their Shaikh's told them it is halal

Spying in Brixton (UK):

Whenever it is haraam to go to the Janazah of someone
-it is haraam to pray behind them too

-on whom the hujjah was established
-democracy is the greatest shirk

-a Brelvi gives the 99 names of Allah attributes to the prophet

-the Shi'ites insult the companions of the prophet and accuse Allah of being a liar

SHIA HUJJAH: “Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

-this is coming from their bible


-he believes that you should keep Islam in the masjid not to take it to the ministry
-and this is what they have in Turkey
-they separate Islam from politics

-he believes Islam is outdated

-a qaadiyani is a kaafir

-he believes in Qur'an but not hadeeth



-he is a fake Muslim


These are the 15 people you should not attend their Janazah
-Allah told you not to stand by their graves

How can you go to the Janazah of a MADkhali?
-he believes in spying against the mujahideen

Umar used to watch who Hudhaifa attends his Janazah
-because the prophet told him the names of all the hypocrites

‘Umar used to say to Hudhayfah: I adjure you by Allaah, did the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) mention me along with the people (i.e., the hypocrites)? He said: No, but I would not praise anyone after you, meaning; I would not praise people (by saying that they are not mentioned among the hypocrites). It does not mean that ‘Umar was the only one who was free of hypocrisy. Tareeq al-Hijratayn (p. 604)

-YES if they were not antagonistic to Islam and if you do it to mend family ties
-the evidence for this is when the body of a Jew passed by the prophet
-he stood up to pay respect and said isn't he a soul created by Allah

Narrated 'Abdur Rahman bin Abi Laila: Sahl bin Hunaif and Qais bin Sad were sitting in the city of Al-Qadisiya. A funeral procession passed in front of them and they stood up. They were told that funeral procession was of one of the inhabitants of the land i.e. of a non-believer, under the protection of Muslims. They said, "A funeral procession passed in front of the Prophet and he stood up. When he was told that it was the coffin of a Jew, he said, "Is it not a living being (soul)?" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 23, Hadith #399]

Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allah loves those who deal with equity. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:8)

If you do not go, you will kill the Dawah in your family
-and Allah did not forbid you from dealing justly with those that did not fight you in your Deen
-so you can attend the Janazah of your Christian parents
