-yesterday I gave you 15 names you are not allowed to attend their Janazah


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 is because of ayah 84 of Surah Taubah
-here are other people you are not allowed to pray over

1. A GAY
-I have no evidence from Qur'an and Sunnah to say you can pray over the gay

There is a difference of opinion concerning the punishment for the one who commits sodomy. The following are the opinions that were mentioned by Imam Ash-Shawkani in "Nayl Al-Awtar" , Vol. 7/p122-124.
1) That he is killed with the sword, then burnt. This is narrated from Abu Bakr and 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib.
2) That a wall should be collapsed upon him. This was the opinion of 'Umar and 'Uthman.
3) That he should be thrown from the highest building in the city, then that should be followed up with him being pelted with rocks. This was the opinion of Ibn 'Abbas.
4) That he is stoned. This is narrated by Al-Bayhaqi from 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Ash-Sha'bi, Az-Zuhri, Malik, Ahmad, Is'haq, and Ash-Shafi'i.
5) That they are burned. This was narrated by Al-Bayhaqi, that Abu Bakr gathered the Sahabah and 'Ali mentioned this, and the Sahabah agreed upon it. It was also mentioned by Al-Munthiri that it was done by Abu Bakr, 'Ali, 'Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr, and Hisham Ibn 'Abdil-Malik.
6) That he is stoned, then burnt with fire. This is narrated from the Sahabah agreeing upon it in the time of Abu Bakr.
7) That the punishment is the same as Zina, in that if he is a virgin, he is whipped, and if he is not, then he is stoned.
8) That there is no prescribed punishment, rather it is left up to the Imam to perform Ta'zir, and this was narrated from Abu Hanifah, and one narration from Ash-Shafi'i, and others.
Ash-Shawkani refutes the opinion of the punishment being the same as Zina, as well as the opinion that there is only Ta'zir, and supports the opinion that he is killed, but does not appear to specify which way of killing is the strongest.

-and I cannot find any aathar (sayings of Sahabah) that says the Sahabah prayed behind the gay
-in my time of study I did not find any evidence for it
-they burnt the gay and this was done because if their bodies are ashes
-how will their people claim their bodies

-the imam of the masjid is not allowed to pray Janazah over him
-but the other members of the masjid can, this is because suicide does not make u a kaafir
-only the khawaarij believe in this

-he falls under the people that committed suicide, so the imam can not pray over him
-when you commit suicide you will not remain in hell forever
-you will come out with the intercession of the prophet
-so the ordinary Muslims can pray over him


And let not their wealth or their children amaze you. Allah's Plan is to punish them with these things in this world, and that their souls shall depart (die) while they are disbelievers. (At-Tawbah 9:85)

-you will say that wealth is a blessing, so how can it be a curse or punishment?
-wealth becomes a blessing only if you utilize it properly

-have you not seen some people are morbidly obese?
-US is the richest country and yet they have the most fattest people
-and Texas has the fattest people
-so wealth becomes a blessing if you utilize it properly

Wealth becomes a punishment for some people
-and it causes some to engage in drugs and die young
-look at Whitney Huston who died at 48 years old, that is a very young age

Whitney Houston 'died from drugs and NOT from drowning':

The poor countries can not afford cocaine
-so they do not have problems with cocaine abuse
-therefore wealth becomes a curse when used in a wrong way

The 3 people that made AIDS famous
-they had so much wealth and they used it to have multiple partners
-and so they died of AIDS

Freddie Mercury:


Rock Hudson

So if you do not have taqwa to utilize wealth properly, it becomes a curse

-can you imagine a woman is pretty and have no taqwa
-she is a shaytan in the land

-if the person has no taqwa he will dabble in chasing girls, gambling and sniffing cocaine
-so some have their wealth become a punishment for them


A man weighed the same as a cow
-no Muslim should be surprised about this because Allah told you

...while those who disbelieve enjoy themselves and eat as cattle eat, and the Fire will be their abode. (Muhammad 47:12)

-the man was called the 1 tonne man
-and the prophet (saw) told you the disbeliever eats with 7 intestines

Ibn Umar (RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, “The disbeliever eats in seven intestines while the believer eats in one intestine.’ [al-Bukhari (5393) and Muslim (2060)]



-have you not seen the kuffaar kids steal everything at home to buy the drugs?
-this took place in South Africa and the woman strangled her kid
-have you not seen their kids becoming lesbians, prostitutes or gays?
-your kids become a source of blessing for you when they are on the Deen

Have you not seen Al-Khidr killed the young boy?
-and when asked by Musa (AS) why he did so

...Then they proceeded further and found a boy playing with other boys. Al-Khadir took hold of the boy's head from the top and plucked it out with his hands (i.e. killed him). Moses said, "Have you killed an innocent soul who has killed none." Al-Kha,dir replied, "Did I not tell you that you cannot remain patient with me?"... [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 3, Hadith #124]

-he told him have you not promised not to ask me questions
-and Musa said he forgot, but he asked because killing the boy did not make sense to him
-so Al-Khidr told him he would have grown up to be a kaafir and be a fitna for his parents

"And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared lest he should oppress them by rebellion and disbelief. (Al-Kahf 18:80)

"So we intended that their Lord should change him for them for one better in righteousness and near to mercy. (Al-Kahf 18:81)

Some people kill their parents to inherit their property
-and because of that Allah told you to make a dua for Him to bless you with kids

And those who say: "Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqun" (pious - see V.2:2 and the footnote of V.3:164)." (Al-Furqan 25:74)

-who will be comfort and joy to your eyes? when you see your son you cry tears of joy
-when you look at your daughter practising the Deen you cry

So you cry for 3 reasons
1. tears of joy
2. tears of sadness
3. tears out of fear of Allah

-and the 3rd type makes your eyes haram for the hellfire

lbn Abbas (RA) reported that he heard Allah’s Messenger (SAW) say, ‘(There are) two eyes that the Fire will never touch, the eye that wept from fear of Allah and the eye that stood guard in the night in Allah’s path.” [Sunan al-Tirmidhi, (Vol. 4, pg.175) No. 1639]

Allah told you that sometimes your wives and children can be your enemies
-so beware of them

O you who believe! Verily, among your wives and your children there are enemies for you (i.e. may stop you from the obedience of Allah), therefore beware of them! But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive (their faults), then verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Taghabun 64:14)

They showed a documentary where born Muslim children claimed to be gay
-this is very painful, so that is why Allah used the word 'some'
-because some of your wives and kids will be your enemies

Prophet Nuh (AS) could not make his son a Muslim
-and he and prophet Lut (AS) had kaafir wives
-you can not make Muslims, only Allah can make people become Muslims

Verily! You (O Muhammad SAW) guide not whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided. (Al-Qasas 28:56)

Allah revealed this ayah when Abu Talib died a kaafir and the prophet was devastated
-so Allah revealed this ayah to comfort him, that his job is only to deliver the message
-but it the job of Allah to make people Muslims
-and because only Allah can make Muslims, He said
-your duty is only to deliver the message

"And our duty is only to convey plainly (the Message)." (Ya-Sin 36:17)

Some children will make your beard become white
-you may be in your mid 30s and you have white beards
-they may steal everything from the home to get their fix
-this is because they suffer from cold turkey
-it is pins and needles from withdrawal syndrome
-so they are desperate to buy the drugs

So do not entertain the idea that all children are a blessing
-they only become a blessing if they have taqwa and then you can look at them out of joy
-some parents cry tears of sadness when they look at their children
-so Allah told you the wealth I gave to the kuffaar is a punishment for them in dunya
-and that is why the richest country in the world is the fattest, the people are morbidly obese
In Surah 31:23

And whoever disbelieved, let not his disbelief grieve you (O Muhammad SAW),. to Us is their return, and We shall inform them what they have done. Verily, Allah is the All­Knower of what is in the breasts (of men). (Luqman 31:23)

We let them enjoy for a little while, then in the end We shall oblige them to (enter) a great torment. (Luqman 31:24)

-so the life the kuffaar think they are enjoying in their casinos, pubs and nightclubs etc
-because they worship 3 things:
-that is their trinity, these kuffaar are very dunyafied
e.g. Nike release a new trainer/sneakers, they line up outside the store by the hundreds to buy Nike
-kuffaar they worship the dunya
-if SONY were to release a new Playstation i.e. Playstation 4, they would line up by the hundreds
-they want to be the first have it because kuffaar they worship the dunya
-why they worship the dunya? Because for them the dunya is their paradise
-but for the believer, the dunya a prison

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The world is a prison-house for a believer and Paradise for a non-believer. [Sahih Muslim, Book 42, Hadith #7058]

-so they are enjoying themselves in the dunya, but Allah said it will only be for a short while
-let them enjoy themselves for awhile in the dunya
-because in the Hereafter they shall be obliged to be dumped into the hellfire because of their kufr


And when a Surah (chapter from the Qur'an) is revealed, enjoining them to believe in Allah and to strive hard and fight along with His Messenger, the wealthy among them ask your leave to exempt them (from Jihad) and say, "Leave us (behind), we would be with those who sit (at home)." (At-Tawbah 9:86)


They are content to be with those (the women) who sit behind (at home). Their hearts are sealed up (from all kinds of goodness and right guidance), so they understand not. (At-Tawbah 9:87)

Allah is giving you the psyche of the kuffaar and the munafiqeen
-the munafiqeen will always seek permission to be exempted from Jihad

-there are some munafiqeen in our midst today
-they come into Islam from the Christianity or Brelvi Aqeedah etc
-and they say: ‘we want to do polygamy because it is mentioned in the holy Quran’
-‘it is our right to have four wives’, they make speeches about it; ‘why can I not have four wives?’
-and they say: ‘we want Zakah’
-they bang on the doors of rich Muslims and say ‘give us Zakah because we have wives to feed’
-so they believe in polygamy and Zakah, so when you ask them: ‘what about Jihad?’
-they say: ‘no, no, no, the Mujahideen are brothers of the Shaytan!’
-‘they are Khawaarij, they are terrorists.
-‘there is no legitimate Jihad right now because there is no Caliph’
-‘we cannot do Jihad without a Caliph’
-this is the Aqeedah of the MADkhali, the Saudi Salafi
-this person is a low life scum of the earth and a hypocrite
-when he comes into Islam, he does not say: ‘what can I do from Islam’
-he says: ‘what can Islam do for me’
-they do not live by the Deen, they live off the Deen

Then you have others who come into Islam from Jahilliyya
-and they talk about the plight of the Ummah, and when you ask them about Jihad
-they say: ‘no, no, no, there is no Jihad because we have a Covenant of Security’
-‘the only thing I can do is go to embassies and shout Nare Takbeer’
-then they go home eat fish and chips and drink tea and say:
-‘at least today I did something for Islam’
-and when you say: ‘what about Jihad?’, they say: ‘no Jihad because of Covenant of Security’
-whenever a person is a munafiq, they will always hide behind the Covenant of Security
-or say there is no Jihad without a Caliph


Shaikh Faisal's Position: The Covenant of Security and more:

-they put conditions on Jihad to make it impossible for you to do Jihad
-because Allah told you, in the time of the prophet they asked permission to be exempted from Jihad
-history repeats itself
-a Goofy Sufi, MADkhali, Brelvi etc they all hate each other, but they are united upon one thing
-calling the Mujahideen, ‘Khawaarij and Terrorists’
-even though they hate each other, they are united on hating the Mujahideen
-you are not allowed to take your Deen from a Shaikh who does not love the Mujahideen
-and bad mouths the mujahideen, why? because the rasul (SAW) said:

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith 4696]

-so be careful of taking your Deen from wicked scholars
-who call the mujahideen, ‘Khawaarij and Terrorists’



- whenever a person is dodgy they pass dodgy fatwas


Narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir: The Prophet (SAW) said: “The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and compassion is that of one body; when one part of it suffers, the rest of the body joins it in staying awake and suffering fever.” [al-Bukhaari (6011) and Muslim (2586)]

- Shaikh Bin Baaz passed a fatwa in 1979 to say jihad was Fardul Ayn
- and there was no caliph then, we ask the MADkhalis
- why did they not condemn the fatwa of bin Baaz?

- Abdullah ibn Ubayy gave the suggestion to fight in Madina
- when the rasul (SAW) asked for where to fight from
- the rasul chose the opinion of those who said that they should go out and fight
- 300 retreated from the army, the hypocrites always spread fitna wherever they are
- they stay behind with women because they are cowards

- when we do jihad only a few die, but when we leave jihad we die in the millions
- this is because we do not follow one of the laws of nature
- which you need to resist to exist
see 2:286

Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know. (Al-Baqarah 2:216)

- you want stay behind with your wife and kids to play monopoly
- but that is not good for you
- the kuffaar will bring Jihad to your doorstep
- even if you do not want to fight

- the Sunnah of Allah was to destroy the kuffaar with natural disasters like in Nuh (AS)

Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (At-Tawbah 9:14)

- but now He punishes them with the believers, the hands of the mujahideen are blessed hands
- you stay at home and play scrabble because that is the easy option
- but the jihad will to come to your doorstep

- three different African countries which were Muslims countries
- were invaded by three different kuffaar countries
- Palestine is also occupied by the Jews, so the kuffaar will come to your doorsteps
- and you'll need to do jihad
- we are a fitna for the kuffaar because the oil that they need is in Muslim hands
- they will come to your land to kill you and steal the oil
- as they are doing right now all around the world
- countries behave like schools boys
- so the big boys bully the small boys and take their lunch money


- likewise the big countries bully the small and take over their resources
- Afghanistan has diamonds and many other resources
- do not think that they are sacrificing their soldiers for nothing


But the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and those who believed with him (in Islamic Monotheism) strove hard and fought with their wealth and their lives (in Allah's Cause). Such are they for whom are the good things, and it is they who will be successful. (At-Tawbah 9:88)

- the sincere believer didn't make excuse


For them Allah has got ready Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success. (At-Tawbah 9:89)


And those who made excuses from the bedouins came (to you, O Prophet SAW) asking your permission to exempt them (from the battle), and those who had lied to Allah and His Messenger sat at home (without asking the permission for it); a painful torment will seize those of them who disbelieve. (At-Tawbah 9:90)

- some people are so sinful their only way to get Jannah is through jihad
- when you abandon jihad it is like abandoning salah

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith 4696]

- because jihad is the 6th pillar of Islam, the knowledge of jihad is Fardul Ayn
- when one of you are sent to the frontline, you have to go


There is no blame on those who are weak or ill or who find no resources to spend [in holy fighting (Jihad)], if they are sincere and true (in duty) to Allah and His Messenger.[] No ground (of complaint) can there be against the Muhsinun (good-doers - see the footnote of V.9:120). And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:91)

- some people are exempted from jihad


Nor (is there blame) on those who came to you to be provided with mounts, and when you said: "I can find no mounts for you," they turned back, while their eyes overflowing with tears of grief that they could not find anything to spend (for Jihad). (At-Tawbah 9:92)

- these Sahabas were sincere
- they went to the rasul and asked him to provide for them camels to join the jihad
- but the rasul could not provide for them, so they could not go, they went back and cried
- these were sincere unlike the hypocrites of today, who make dodgy excuses for jihad

On the authority of Imraan ibn Hussain who said: “The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ‘A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight for the sake of the truth until the last of them fights the Dajjal (anti-Christ) (Al Hakim in his book Al-Mustadrak Vol. 4 pg.450)

- the hadith says "continue", this means jihad is going on right now
- if a MADkhali speaks and it does not make you sick, you are not a sincere believer

- if you are not able to finance yourself and go to the frontline
- then there is no blame on you

- if you kill a kaafir on the battlefield
- he'll take your place in the hellfire
- this was stated in a hadith

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger Allah (may peace be upon him) said: A disbeliever and a believer who killed him will never be gathered together in Hell. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4661]

- these Sahabahs knew that killing a kaafir on the battlefield
- was there one way ticket to Jannah

Abu Musa' reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire. [Sahih Muslim, Book 37, Hadith #6665]


The ground (of complaint) is only against those who are rich, and yet ask exemption. They are content to be with (the women) who sit behind (at home) and Allah has sealed up their hearts (from all kinds of goodness and right guidance) so that they know not (what they are losing). (At-Tawbah 9:93)


They (the hypocrites) will present their excuses to you (Muslims), when you return to them. Say (O Muhammad SAW) "Present no excuses, we shall not believe you. Allah has already informed us of the news concerning you. Allah and His Messenger will observe your deeds. In the end you will be brought back to the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen, then He (Allah) will inform you of what you used to do." [Tafsir At-Tabari] (At-Tawbah 9:94)


They will swear by Allah to you (Muslims) when you return to them, that you may turn away from them. So turn away from them. Surely, they are Rijsun [i.e. Najasun (impure) because of their evil deeds], and Hell is their dwelling place, - a recompense for that which they used to earn. (At-Tawbah 9:95)

- rijus is impurity but it is spiritual impurity here
- najus is physical impurity


They (the hypocrites) swear to you (Muslims) that you may be pleased with them, but if you are pleased with them, certainly Allah is not pleased with the people who are Al-Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:96)

- they will swear by Allah to win your trust
- because they know that a Muslim believes when they hear wallahi

They have made their oaths a screen (for their hypocrisy). Thus they hinder (men) from the Path of Allah. Verily, evil is what they used to do. (Al-Munafiqun 63:2)


The bedouins are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy, and more likely to be in ignorance of the limits (Allah's Commandments and His Legal Laws, etc.) which Allah has revealed to His Messenger. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:97)

- Allah chose the Bedouin and said that they are disbelievers
- because they live in desert which has a hard life
- so this type of life can make your heart hard and your sight weak
- a man who is poor and needy has no religion
- hence this makes him the worst of kuffaar and hypocrite
- he is a waggonist, jumping from one religion to another
- they will not have ilm because all they think about is, where will the next meal come from
- you cannot concentrate when you are hungry
- this is why you eat before you pray, if the food is ready and you are hungry

“Poverty, in all probability, leads to unbelief (kufr).” [Bayhaqi and Tabarani]
