Bismillah...

Religion is sincerity - hadeeth

On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said: "Religion is sincerity". We said: "To whom?" He said: "To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk". [Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith #98]

HOW TO BE SINCERE TO THE HOLY QUR'AN

1. YOU NEED TO BELIEVE THE QUR'AN IS THE WORD OF ALLAH
-it is NOT a created thing
-this is NOT our creed
-the 4 great Imams made takfir on those who say the Qur'an is created:

Imam Shafi (rahimaullah) said, ”Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir” Masail Abu Dawood Pg 262, sanad is Saheeh

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said,”Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir; do not say salam to him, neither pray behind him nor sit with him.” Masail ibn Hani Pg 154 Vol.2 fekrah 1863

from Alee bin al-Hasan al-Kuraa'ee who said: Abu Yusuf said: I debated Abu Hanifah for six months, and then our view became united that the one who said the Qur'an is created is a kaafir. [Adh-Dhahabee brings with a good (jayyid) chain of narration, as occurs in Mukhtasar al-Uluww (p. 155)]

2. BELIEVE THE QUR'AN IS FREE FROM CORRUPTION

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9)

Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allah). (Fussilat 41:42)

3. CONTEMPLATE ON ITS MEANING

Do they not then think deeply in the Qur'an, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)? (Muhammad 47:24)

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein many contradictions. (An-Nisa 4:82)

4. KNOW THAT THE QUR'AN DOES NOT CONTRADICT THE QUR'AN (ITSELF)

-it is impossible to find 2 ayahs that contradict each other
-the kuffaar establish websites that say Qur'an contradicts itself to weaken the young Muslims
-and we become stronger in our deen the older we get
-we're not allowed to visit these sites
-only a scholar can visit there to refute them
-when a kaafir says the Qur'an contradicts itself, tell them to debate a scholar

If they say ALLAH ROSE OVER THE THRONE (ask them for a scholar to debate them)
-you would not have the hujjah to argue with them

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God i.e. Allah). So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord." (Al-Kahf 18:110)

5. WE ARE TO IMPLEMENT THE QUR'AN ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL

Hadeeth of Aisha (RA)
-the Rasool (SAW) was the 'walking Qur'an'

Yazid ibn Yabnus said, "We went to 'A'isha and said, 'Umm al-Mu'minin, what was the character of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), like?' She replied, 'His character was the Qur'an. Can you recite the sura entitled "The Believers"?' She said, 'Recite: "It is the believers who are successful: those who are humble in their prayer; those who turn away from worthless talk; those who actively pay zakat; those who guard their private parts." (23:1-5)' She said, 'That was the character of the Messenger of Allah (SAW).'" [al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari, No. 308]

And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character. (Al-Qalam 68:4)

-he was at the peak of sublime character

He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism), and teaching them the Book (this Qur'an, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad SAW). And verily, they had been before in mainfest error; (Al-Jumu'ah 62:2)

Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "I was sent to perfect good character." [Maliks Muwatta, Book 47, Hadith #008]

Some people are evil in character because their parents did not give them any Islamic upbringing
-they have no manners, such as walking into a room with a closed door without knocking

Ayyub ibn Musa reported on the authority of his father who from his grand father that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “No father gave a better gift to his son than (teaching) good manners." [Tirmidhi 1959, Ahmed 15403]

The best we can have on Judgment Day is GOOD CHARACTER

Narrated By Abu Darda': The Prophet (SAW) said: "There is nothing heavier than good character put in the scale of a believer on the Day of Resurrection." [Abu Dawud 4799, Tirmidhi 2002, Ahmed 27587]

-see 36:70

That he or it (Muhammad SAW or the Qur'an) may give warning to him who is living (a healthy minded the believer), and that Word (charge) may be justified against the disbelievers (dead, as they reject the warnings). (Ya-Sin 36:70)

-see 33:21

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SAW) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much. (Al-Ahzab 33:21)

Divorce is rife among Muslims (on same level as kuffaar - those Muslim in the west)
-this is because no one can live with someone with a bad character
-the men are freeloaders (living off the women)
-the society has destroyed their character

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]

-see 4:145

Verily, the hyprocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. (An-Nisa 4:145)

-the munafiqeen will use their money for alcohol and drugs and casinos
-because their love is for dunya, dunya and more dunya
-if we were playing music in here, we would have 200 nicks, not 55
-if this was a room where men and women could meet each other for the purpose of zina
-we would have 200 nicks in here
-when you are sincere to the Qur'an, we would have 200 nicks in here

6. IS TO BELIEVE IN ALL OF IT NOT SOME OF THE QUR'AN

Some Muslims live BY the deen and some OFF of it
-see 2:85

...Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest?... (Al-Baqarah 2:85)

-see 2:44

Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)]! Have you then no sense? (Al-Baqarah 2:44)

-the ayat is NOT only directed towards the Jews
-see 5:44

...And whoever does not judge according to what Allah has sent down, then those are they (who are) the disbelievers. (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Dr Ghalli Translation]

-this is an insult to Muhammad (SAW) if we say that ayah is only for the Jews
-munafiqhs will make statements 'this is only for Jews'
-they believe part of the book and reject other parts

SAUDI SALAFIS
-want 3 or 4 wives because they are told in the Qur'an to marry 2, 3 or 4
-they think the NORM is to have 2 wives
-see 4:3

…then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the captives and the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice. (An-Nisa 4:3)

-so polygamy is promoted vigorously

MASJIDS IN GREEN LANE IN UK
-some sisters have 4 husbands
-(she marries then divorces then brothers continue this so she is always changing husbands)
-they use polygamy to do haraam in a halal way

Some Muslims live BY the deen and some OFF of it
-but this same Saudi Salafi will ask for zakah because he now has 3 wives
-but he does not believe in jihad because we have no caliph, right now
-but he will harass rich Muslims for zakah
-he does not believe in ALL of the Qur'an
-but in 1979, we had a fatawa by Shaikh bin Baaz just 1 year later
-because a Muslim land was invaded by the Taghoot and we had no caliph then

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 wishes he had passed a fatawa to liberate OCCUPIED PALESTINE
-Shaikh was sentenced to 9 years in prison because of his CD - NO PEACE WITH THE JEWS

We can call the apostate regimes KHAWARIJ
-Shaikh cannot be Khawarij because he served time in prison for his CDs
-i.e. THEM VS US, NO PEACE WITH THE JEWS etc
-Khawarij want us to kill other Muslims, they are harsh with the Ummah and soft with the kuffaar
-this Khawarij is bored with his 1 wife, so he takes a few others and they cite 4:3 for their hujjah
-these do not believe in ALL the Qur'an
-they do not believe in jihad or support the mujahideen
-the kuffaar do not acknowledge the COS (Covenant of Security)
-and we do not have a covenant with them now
-some Muslims promote the COS but this is because they have a disease in their heart (wahn)
-they cannot say which leader signed the COS

Shaikh bin Baaz passed the fatawa that jihad was Fardul Ayn, no one complained then
-and half a million men and boys went to fight for the Ummah in Afghanistan
-there was no caliph in 1980

Glorified (and Exalted) be He (Allah) [above all that (evil) they associate with Him] [Tafsir Qurtubi, Vol. 10, Page 204] Who took His slave (Muhammad SAW) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah) to the farthest mosque (in Jerusalem), the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed, in order that We might show him (Muhammad SAW) of Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, lessons, signs, etc.). Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer[]. (Al-Isra 17:1)

America gave bin Baaz's fatawa its blessings
-but they did not give a blessing for OCCUPIED PALESTINE
-America was required to give him a green light
-Israel is in the pocket of the shaytaan (and friends with America)
-how could we ignore passing this fatawa?

SHAIKH FAWZAAN CLAIMS THE GREATEST JIHAD IS TO KILL MUJAHIDEEN:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wwJPZTDJw8


SHAIKH ABDUL MUHSIN AL-ABBAAD: "MUJAHIDEEN UPON THE WAY OF SHAYTAN":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBXt-cQcyuo


-these people think our mujahideen DOGS OF JAHANNUM
-if Shi’ites are killing Saudi Salafis, let them

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)

7. TO IMPLEMENT THE QUR’AN ON THE STATE LEVEL

Do not become a secularist who says religion is an individual thing
- they say let us teach Darwinism if we want
- this is western education which is haram

Engineering, Petroleum etc are not western education, they are international education
-democracy is western education, no one can deny that western education is haram

The Muslims living in the West are designed to be scum’s of the earth
- most of them are hypocrites
- because they went through western education which has a satanic syllabus
- Shariah has to govern the land

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

- when you go to a masjid and you hear the imam talk about alcohol
- and he quotes the hadith that says that ten people are cursed

Anas ibn Maalik reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) cursed ten man concerning wine. 1. One who extracts it. 2. One who gets it extracted. 3. One who drinks it. 4. One who delivers it. 5. One to whom it is brought. 6. One who serves it. 7. One who sells it. 8. One who receives its price. 9. One who buys it. 10. One for whom it is bought. [Tirmidhi 1299, Ibn e Majah 3381]

- it is a wonderful khutba until he says shariah should be implemented to tackle the problem the alcohol

There are 3 dars:
1. Darul harb - kill and lock up Muslims

2. Darul Kufr - do not kill or lock up Muslims, but no Shariah

3. Darul Islam - Shariah implemented and Muslim’s rights are safeguarded
-Allah states in 22:41 that the Quran should be implemented at the individual level

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)

Narrated By 'Ubada bin As-Samit: Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever does not recite Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 12, Hadith #723]

8. YOU NEED TO LEARN THE TAFSEER OF THE QURAN FROM A SINCERE SCHOLAR

-you need to shun the scholars who are not sincere
-if a person has dodgy Aqeedah and you expose him you have not backbitten him
-all you done is enjoined the right and forbidden the wrong
-Allah says 9:119

O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds). (At-Tawbah 9:119)

-you must not go to the Shi’ites to learn tafseer
-there is an ayah in Surah Baqarah saying 'slaughter a cow' they say the cow is Aisha
-if you were sincere you would go to the tafseer of ibn Kathir, but not the Shi’ites
-why do you not read the tafseer of Qurtubi, ibn Kathir?
-Allahs says;

It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Qur'an). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkam (commandments, etc.), Al-Fara'id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord." And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabari). (Aali Imran 3:7)

-the Shi’ites take away the full stops from the ayah
-Allah says in the ayah above only Allah knows where the full stops are

Sohaib al-Hasan Who Justifies Darwisnim:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CN-nB0azHI


-when Shaikh released the CD the devils deception of the Saudi Salafi
-people thought Shaikh was harsh
-until they realised these ‘Salafis’ were preaching Darwinism in their masjid
-why did you realise after so long? Shaikh told you ten years ago these people are no good
-the reason why Shaikh told us ten years ago because these people went away from the ijmaa of the Ummah

-and also because they think dismantling the Shariah of Allah is ‘kufr duna kufr’

Say (O Muhammad SAW to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell­fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:60)

9. IF YOU ARE A SCHOLAR YOU MUST GIVE THE CORRECT TAFSEER OF THE QURAN

-if you are a student of knowledge you must find a scholar who gives proper tafseer

"A scholar who abandons what has learnt from the Quran and the Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teaching of Allah and His Messenger is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter " Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Volume 35/373

-also, if you are a scholar, you must not put a spin on the ayahs and cement the thrones of the apostates
-ibn Taymiyyah fatwa states this
-Shaikh only bought this one fatwa and the people run away in a debate
-what if he brought all the other fatawas?

Jundub ibn Abdullah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If any one speaks on the Qur’an giving his own opinion and even if he is correct, he has done wrong.” [Sunan at-Tirmdhi (Vol. 5, pg.201) No. 2953, Sunan Abu Dawud (Vol. 2, pg. 344) No. 3652]

Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “He who speaks on the Qur’an without possessing knowledge must assume his seat in the Fire.” [Musnad Ahmad (Vol. 1, pg. 269) No. 2429, Sunan at-Tirmdhi (Vol. 5, pg.198) No. 2950, Abu Eesa al-Tirmidhi said: this hadeeth is hasan]

10. YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT THE QURAN ABROGATES THE PREVIOUS BOOKS

-do not tell Shaikh that a Muslim girl can marry a kaafir man
-because the wife of the Pharaoh was Asiya and she was a Muslim
-do not ask why, Allah knows best
-do not bring that as a hujjah because Allah said in the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW) is different to the others

O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them... (Al-Mumtahinah 60:10)

-in the Shariah of Jesus you were allowed to drink alcohol
-also make sajadah to people out of respect
-you cannot do that in our Shariah now
-the prophet (SAW) said if it was halal he would tell the women to bow down to their husbands

...If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah. [Abu Dawud, Book 5, Hadith #2135]

-do not say: ‘you are not allowed to eat certain things from the sea’
-that is from the Shariah for Musa
-the prophet (SAW) everything in the sea is halal to eat and the water is ok to make wudhu with

Abu Huraira reported that a man asked the Prophet (pbuh)): "we travel in the sea and we carry with us little water. If we used it for wudu then we would be suffering thirst! so should we still use this water for wudu ? The Prophet (pbuh) replied: Its [sea] water is pure and its dead meat [fish and whatever lives in sea and die by leaving it] is Halal to eat" [Tirmidhi 69, Ahmed 8743, Abu Dawud 83, Nisai 59, Ibn e Majah 386]

-hanbali fiqh says everything is halal to eat from the sea also
-and if the animals leave the sea and die after leaving the sea you can still eat that animal

11. WE MUST READ THE QURAN ONCE IN OUR LIFETIME

12. YOU MUST KEEP QUIET WHEN THE QURAN IS RECITED

-sometimes you might play the Quran and you are speaking
-and the Quran is still playing in the background this is Haraam
-Allah says;

So, when the Qur'an is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy. [i.e. during the compulsory congregational prayers when the Imam (of a mosque) is leading the prayer (except Surat Al-Fatiha), and also when he is delivering the Friday-prayer Khutbah]. [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol.9, Pages 162-4] (Al-A'raf 7:204)

-also you cannot have the Quran as a ringtone on your cell phone, this is haram
-you can have the adhan as your alarm tone to wake you up for fajr
-when the Quran is being played, the people must stop what they are doing and listen to the Quran
-you are making it fardh for the people
-this is why its haram for you to have Quran as a ringtone, no scholars will tell you otherwise

13. YOU NEED TO FOLLOW THE MANHAJ OF THE QURAN

What is the Manhaj?
-To call for Tawheed in Darul Harb, and call for Shariah in Darul Islam

There are two types of Surahs in the Quran
i. MAKKI
-the Makki Surahs focus on Tawheed
ii. MADANI
-and the Madani Surahs focus on the Shariah
-you must follow this manhaj
-this is why the prophet (SAW) said when he sent Mu'adh ibn Jabbal to Yemen

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]

-this is our manhaj the Quranic manhaj
