-394- The 11 Shades Of Kufr


By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
09.10.2012 (Night Dars)

NOTES typed by AT-21
Edited and Formatted by AT7


The first disease is SHIRK
-love for false deities
-you're only allowed to love Allah 'tala when it comes to worship,
-as we do not worship Muhammad (pbuh)

Allah said:

And of mankind are some who take (for worship) others besides Allāh as rivals (to Allāh). They love them as they love Allāh. But those who believe, love Allāh more (than anything else). If only, those who do wrong could see, when they will see the torment, that all power belongs to Allāh and that Allāh is Severe in punishment. (Al-Baqarah 2:165)

-taken from the root word 'to cover up', to 'conceal'
-kaafir is used to describe someone who is 'ungrateful'

Allah said:

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatīn (devils), and the Shaitān (Devil ¬ Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)

-kaafirs are naturally ungrateful
-there are many shades of kufr
-and we see this kufr in front of our eyes every day


-atheists are guilty of inkaar
-if you deny Allah's existence or qadr or Judgment Day, you're inkaar
-some people are 'scare-mongers' (denying the Judgment Day)

THE GOD DELUSION (book) by Richard Dawkins
-his book teaches to deny the existence of Allah and to revive atheism in this century

The God Delusion is a 2006 bestselling non-fiction book by English biologist Richard Dawkins:

(These Ayat were revealed about some members of my Ummah. They will come before the end of time and deny Al-Qadar.) Ata' bin Abi Rabah said, "I went to Ibn `Abbas and found him drawing water from the well of Zamzam. The bottom of his clothes was wet with the water of Zamzam and I said to him, `They talked about Al-Qadar (some denied it).' He asked, `Have they done this' I said, `Yes.' He said, `By Allah! This Ayah was revealed only about them, ("Taste you the touch of Hell!'' Verily, We have created all things with Qadar.) They are the worst members of this Ummah. Do not visit those who fall ill among them or pray the Funeral prayer for those among them who die. If I saw one of them,
I would pluck out his eyes with these two fingers of mine.'' [Ibn Kathir agreed Tirmidhi]

The people who reject qadr are called Qadariyya
-if you deny one of the 6 pillars of emaan, you're guilty of the kufr of inkaar

-is when you have doubts about the existence of Allah 'tala
-"shak" means 'to doubt'

In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allāh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies. (Al-Baqarah 2:10)

-the doubters might deny that Muhammad (saw) was a prophet
-the moment we doubt, we are no longer believers

Allah said:

Only those are the believers who have believed in Allāh and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allāh. Those! They are the truthful. (Al-Hujurat 49:15)

Our Shahada has 7 conditions:
1) Knowledge
2) Certainty

The scholars say if 2 men, one has disease of the heart (adultery) and another the disease of doubt
-the doubter is worse because the adulterer is still a Muslim
-the doubter is a kaafir

There are 2 types of kufr:
1) Amalee

2) Qalbee

-"amalee" is the kufr of action such as adultery
-this person is still a Muslim
-the man who doubts that Muhammad (saw) was a Prophet committed "qalbee"
-this is kufr of the heart; this makes you a kaafir
-the kufr of the limbs, amalee doesn't make you a kaafir

~We're to be SURE of our beliefs~

-this is to reject and turn away from the message, for example
-this is the same word used when we're taught the rules of marriage
-some husbands turn their back on their wives; not kissing or making love to them

"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'ān nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." (Ta-Ha 20:124)

-if we practice i'raad, we're promised a life of hardship
-we might live on antidepressant tablets or mental diseases
-some people grow up in Islam but not learning Surah Fatiha or the adhaan
-and these people are then called kaafirs by the scholars

Shaikh in South Africa:
-he saw people begging for money
-the shaikhs would ask the beggars to recite Surah Fatiha because if they cannot
-they are kaafirs because it shows they do not PRAY
-the kufr of these people is called the kufr of i'raad

10. Turning away from the religion of Allah, not learning it or applying it. Allah says: “And who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the signs of his Lord, then he turns aside therefrom? Verily, We shall exact retribution from the sinners.” (Qur’an, 32:22) Sheikh Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab

-this is the kufr of arrogance
-our arrogance causes us to reject the truth
-some people elevate themselves to the level of Allah 'tala due to their arrogance
-the man who suffers from a god-complex suffers from istikbaar
-he rejects the truth

Allah said:

Have you not looked at him who disputed with Ibrahim (Abraham) about his Lord (Allāh), because Allāh had given him the kingdom? When Ibrahim (Abraham) said (to him): "My Lord (Allāh) is He Who gives life and causes death." He said, "I give life and cause death." “Ibrahim (Abraham) said, "Verily! Allāh causes the sun to rise from the east; then cause it you to rise from the west." So the disbeliever was utterly defeated. And Allāh guides not the people, who are Zālimûn (wrong-doers, etc.). (Al-Baqarah 2:258)

-these men don't think they need to listen to Allah 'tala
-Pharaoh had this kufr

Then he gathered his people and cried aloud, (An-Nazi'at 79:23)

Saying: "I am your lord, most high", (An-Nazi'at 79:24)

And they belied them (those Ayāt) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their own selves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayāt) are from Allāh, and Mûsa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allāh in truth, but they disliked to obey Mûsa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidûn (disbelievers, disobedient to Allāh, evil-doers, liars.). (An-Naml 27:14)

It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah b. Mas'ud that the Apostle of Allah (SAW), observed: He who has in his heart the weight of a mustard seed of pride shall not enter Paradise. A person (amongst his hearers) said: Verily a person loves that his dress should be fine, and his shoes should be fine. He (the Holy Prophet) remarked: Verily, Allah is Graceful and He loves Grace. Pride is disdaining the truth (out of self-conceit) and contempt for the people. [Sahih Muslim (1/93) No. 91]

-they look down on poor people
-they wear designer clothes and look down upon those who don't
-they are practicing 'snobbery'
-but in Turkey and Italy, you can find copies of their expensive designs

This was the plight of Nimrod, Pharaoh, Abu Lahab and Abu Jahl

And (remember) when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves before Adam.” And they prostrated except Iblīs (Satan), he refused and was proud and was one of the disbelievers (disobedient to Allāh). (Al-Baqarah 2:34)

-Iblīs had this kufr too
-his pride prevented him from bowing to Adam, as he was commanded

-when you reject the truth

-when we make haram halal

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H): “Whenever a person makes halal what is haram by consensus or makes haram what is halal by consensus or replaces the Shari’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” – “Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 3/267

One day the Rasool (saw) saw Adie ibn Haatim come towards him with a big cross around his neck

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)

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allāh (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allāh), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurāt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilāh (God - Allāh) Lā ilāha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)[]. Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." (At-Tawbah 9:31)

-he read 9:31 to teach the Christians the kufr of istihlaal
-to show there are many different shades of kufr and shirk
-we need to broaden our search on kufr and shirk
-we need to know what kufr is because we're told not to die unless we die as Muslims

This kufr covers going to kaafir courthouses for judgments
-Allah said:

Have you seen those (hyprocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Tāghût (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitān (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray. (An-Nisa 4:60)

...then die not except in the Faith of Islam (as Muslims - Islamic Monotheism)." (Al-Baqarah 2:132)

...and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah. (Aali Imran 3:102)

Eat not (O believers) of that (meat) on which Allāh's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animal), for sure it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allāh). And certainly, the Shayātin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [by making Al¬Maytatah (a dead animal) legal by eating it], then you would indeed be Mushrikûn (polytheists) [because they (devils and their friends) made lawful to you to eat that which Allāh has made unlawful to eat and you obeyed them by considering it lawful to eat, and by doing so you worshipped them, and to worship others besides Allāh is polytheism]. (Al-An'am 6:121)

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. [Adwa' al-Bayan, (7/162)]

-when we go to kaafir courts for judgment, our shirk is tahakum (believing in their Shari’ah)
-we're not to make haram, halal

-this is a kufr by itself (the kufr of hypocrisy)
-you're pretending to be Muslim but you don't believe in any of the pillars of emaan
-these people are spies
-you can tell who they are often by how they pray (he might be putting his left hand over the right hand)
-or he can't make wudu properly

People pretend to be Muslims for 4 reasons:
1) They want your contacts
2) They want to benefit from your wealth
3) They want to marry a Muslimah
4) They want to spy on the ummah

Muslims in America have filed a lawsuit
-because the students were being spied on wrongfully


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

'Abdullah ibn 'Amr narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said, "If anyone has four characteristics, he is a pure hypocrite, and if anyone has one of them, he has an aspect of hypocrisy until he gives it up: whenever he is trusted, he betrays his trust; whenever he speaks, he lies; when he makes an agreement, he breaks it; and when he quarrels, he deviates from the truth by speaking falsely." [al-Bukhari (34) and Muslim (58)]

-another sign of a munafiq is that salah and Ramadan are burdens on them

...Ibn Shihab said he did not hear that exemption was granted in anything what the people speak as lie but in three cases: in battle, for bringing reconciliation amongst persons and the narration of the words of the husband to his wife, and the narration of the words of a wife to her husband (in a twisted form in order to bring reconciliation between them). [Sahih Muslim, Book 32, Hadith #6303]

-he spreads fitna but says he doesn't know who started the fitna

-mocking the deen
-if you shave off your beard, you're not a kaafir
-but if you laugh at a Muslim with a beard, you're a kaafir

If you ask them (about this), they declare: "We were only talking idly and joking." Say: "Was it at Allāh, and His Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger (SAW) that you were mocking?" (At-Tawbah 9:65)

Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you because they were Mujrimûn (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:66)

-not wearing hijab doesn't make you a kaafir
-but mocking someone who wears it, makes you a kaafir
-just to laugh at a button on the shirt of the Prophet ~ makes you a kaafir

...and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah. (Aali Imran 3:102)

...then die not except in the Faith of Islam (as Muslims - Islamic Monotheism)." (Al-Baqarah 2:132)

-many of you don't know that your family members are kuffaar

-see 18:50 where Allah said:

And (remember) when We said to the angels; "Prostrate to Adam." So they prostrated except Iblīs (Satan). He was one of the jinns; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him (Iblīs) and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an evil is the exchange for the Zālimûn (polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc). (Al-Kahf 18:50)

-you can become a kaafir by disobeying one commandment of Allah 'tala
-based on 18:50, Iblīs became a kaafir when he refused to bow down to Adam
-Ahmad ibn Hanbal said if a man refuses to pray, and you give him everything he needs to pray
-if he then misses a salah, you chop off his head and bury him in the cemetery of the kuffaar

-not every lie makes you a kaafir

-a 35 year old man says he is only 30, he lied about his age, but he is not a kaafir

-when you lie on Allah 'tala or His Rasool (pbuh)
-when you take bribes to give a false testimony in court
-such as to have someone's hand cut off

Ibn Mas`ud was asked (by the people of Iraq), What is rashwa (taking bribes)? He replied, "This is suht (unlawful earning)." They said, "No, we meant in ruling." He then said, "This is the very kufr." Then he recited: "...And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun." (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Tafsir al-Tabari (10/321) No. 11960, Tafsir Ibn Kathir (3/119)]

FABRICATED: “There is no Salaam (i.e. no greeting) whilst eating.” However, this is not a Hadeeth as stated by the scholars may Allah have mercy upon them. Al-Ajlooni may Allah have mercy upon him wrote in his book "Kashf Al-Khafaa’": “There is no Salaam whilst eating.” is not a Hadeeth.”
Narrated By Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: "Whoever tells a lie against me intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 3, Hadith #108]

When you lie on the Rasool, your seat will be in Hellfire forever
-people do this to make up their own version of 'Hislam'
-Soofis say they do not lie ON the Prophet but FOR the Prophet

-it means to replace
-to change the Shari’ah for something else
-exchanging the Shari’ah with man-made ideas

So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammed ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-Yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Sharia of Muhammed (saw). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims. Ibn Kathir, Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, Vol 13, p119

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullaah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eemaan for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." – "Risaalat Wujoob Tah'keem Sharee'at Allah' Pg. 39, which follows the "Risaalat Tah'keem Al-Qawaneen" Published by "Daar Al-Muslim"

-Shaikh bin Baz even said when you practice istibdaal, you're a kaafir
-the MADkhalis say if you exchange Shari’ah for man-made laws, you're still a Muslim
-"replace" means istibdaal

-when you read a book written by a classical scholar
-when it asks, 'what makes you a kaafir?' it always mentions 'the kufr of black magic'

They followed what the Shayātin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaimān (Solomon). Sulaimān did not disbelieve, but the Shayātin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Hārût and Mārût, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, "We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us)." And from these (angels) people learn that by which they cause separation between man and his wife but they could not thus harm anyone except by Allāh's Leave. And they learn that which harms them and profits them not. And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their ownselves, if they but knew. (Al-Baqarah 2:102)

THE SEVENTH NULLIFIER: Sorcery, which includes magic spells that cause a person to hate something he seeks after (sarf) or love something he doesn’t seek after (‘atf). So whoever performs it or is pleased with it being done, has committed disbelief. The proof for this is Allah’s statement: “And neither of these two (angels) would teach anyone until they had first said to them: ‘We are only a trial (for the people), so do not commit disbelief.’” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 102]

Jundub (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The hadd (prescribed punishment) for the practitioner of magic is a blow with the sword (i.e., execution)" [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/60) No. 1460, Sunan al-Daraqutni (4/120) No. 3204, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/401) No. 8073, al-Sunan al-Kabir al-Bayhaqi (8/234) No. 16500, al-Mu'jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (2/161) No. 1665]


Assalamu alaikum Shaikh, when actions are made by intentions - is it true, that the kufr of action can easily lead to kufr of the heart - as a person who is aware of Allah swt, and fear Him, may not so easily do kufr actions? JZK

-Kufr of actions (drinking alcohol or cheating on your wife) - makes you a faasiq (sinner)
-Kufr of the qalb is, not believing in the Rasool (saws) - makes you a kaafir
-the Khawarij are jaahil in regards to kufr
-they paint every kufr with the same brush


Assalamu alaikum shaikh, Can the police be called by masjid administration to settle a dispute at masjid in the west?

-the only time you can call is if the person is a kaafir or munafiq
-same for a Muslimah, she can only call if husband is a kaafir or munafiq
-in London, a man punched an Imam in his eye and knocked the eye out
-you can only use kaafir to settle kaafir matters

O you who believe! Obey Allāh and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allāh and His Messenger (SAW), if you believe in Allāh and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. (An-Nisa 4:59)


Assalamu alaikum Shaikh, are we allowed to go to the kafir courthouse, living in Darul Harb (preparing for hijra) to deal with issues of injustice from kuffar (i.e. car accident, job issues... etc.)? JZK

-if your car is stolen and you report it to the police,
-they might find your car and you'll go to reclaim it
-this is not tahakum because your property is one of our 6 sacred things
-same if you are trying to get custody of your children so you can raise the kids Islamically
-tahakum is when we have a choice between Shari’ah court and kaafir court and we chose the latter
-car insurance is imposed upon us and if we have an accident, where we're hurt
-and we get a sum of money for the damages, we are not doing tahakum


Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah Shaikh, I am a wali to my cousin who is about to get married, insha Allah. We are both reverts, she more recently than me. She is afraid of polygamy, though, because of how many Muslims of our same culture/ethnicity have abused it here in the US. She’d like to bar it in the nikah contract. Is this a disease of the heart on her part, and is she allowed placing a bar against polygamy in the nikah contract? I understand her fear, but I don’t wish to do any injustice against her or the future husband.

-We understand her fear and we're not wishing to do injustice against her or her future husband
-Maliki fiqh says she can't have this in the contract
-but Hanbali fiqh allows for this
-it's difficult to say which opinion is better
-Shaikh's experiences are for the sister not to put it in the contract
-because she might be taking away one of the man's rights
-some men have high libido

It was narrated that Sa’eed ibn Jubayr said: Ibn ‘Abbas said to me: “Have you gotten married?” I said: “No.” He said: “Get married, for the best of this ummah are the ones with the most wives.” [Sahih Bukhari (7/3) No. 5069]

-for every man, there will be 50 women so stipulating this puts a burden on the marriages
-men feel bullied when this is in the contract
-many men even become homosexuals and prisoners and abuse drugs or become impotent


Is zakat mal 2.5% or is there any evidence for this fixed rate? And if someone says that if someone doesn't pay half of their wealth if they are capable then they are being sinful, is this istihlaal?

-this is istihlaal because the Shari’ah says to pay 25.00 on 1,000
-this man is a zindeeq (who are worse than kaafirs)
-because he made up his own religion


What do we do in the west when we have a serious problem that requires us to use the courthouse of the kafir? In some areas we don’t have Islamic judges.

-I understand your plight; if it has to do with getting back your wealth,
-you did nothing wrong
-if you were damaged at your workplace and you want to sue to recover your health
-you're doing nothing wrong
-this is because our health and property are sacred


Assalamu alaikum shaikh, Is it allowed for a president to be sworn in by putting his hand on the Qur'an and swearing on it? And if not, what does that say about the presidency? Also is there a limit of 40 people to start a khutba on Fridays? Jzk

-Imam Shafi'i said you need 40 people to start a jumm'ah
-but really only 3 people are needed (an Imam and 2 others)
-to put your hand on Qur'an to swear, well, the Sahabah didn't do this
-to swear to uphold a constitution, which is not Shari’ah, this makes no sense to me
-but if it were to uphold Shari’ah, there's nothing wrong with this


Assalamu alaikum my question is you say going to another person’s court and believing in it is kufr. What about someone whose family was murdered or was burgled, do they call the police in darul kufr? Can't someone seek justice without believing in the system because they are doing it out of necessity not kufr and they are not a leader therefore they can't implement the Shari’ah? Can you please explain?

-the statement we brought came from Shinqiti

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. [Adwa' al-Bayan, (7/162)]

Have you seen those (hyprocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Tāghût (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitān (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray. (An-Nisa 4:60)

-if you're living in darul kufr or darul harb, and your property or health were violated
-you're not doing anything wrong



Assalamu alaikum Shaikh, may we have a dars on darul harb insha Allah please? JZK

-shaikh was warned not to give dars on this subject
-darul harb is against their system so they will feel it is against them and shaikh is a danger to them
-he will have to do the dars with 5 or 6 students with no record
-shaikh spent time in jail for this topic
-he will do a tape on this when he is on the front line insha Allah

When he did the sealed nectar lecture shaikh touched on this subject
-when the caravans of Quraish were raided and the prophet said nothing
-they begged the prophet (saw) to make them medina citizens
-so that the raids on the caravans would stop
-they raided the caravans belonging to darul harb

Darul harb topic is too sensitive
-shaikh gave private talk on this to his wife
-she advised him not to do talk on this
-it tells how to bring down kaffir countries bit by bit, financially etc.
-Allah said fight them the way they fight you
-i.e. if they kill your woman you can kill their women

and fight against the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allāh) collectively[], as they fight against you collectively. But know that Allāh is with those who are Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). (At-Tawbah 9:36)

-if they kill your children you can kill theirs
-if they fight you financially, you can fight them financially
-Abu Qatadah said if the only way to stop them killing your kids is to kill theirs then do so


-fight them on all fronts the way they fight you


Assalamu Alaikum shaikh, a brother has purposed to me for marriage, I asked him the questions I wanted to ask, but I want to find out about his character. Who should I ask him or his friend? Should I ask or my wali?

-It is the wali’s job to ask about character
-his best friends will give the best reference
-His ex-wife might be, as well as might not
-hell has no fury like a woman scorned
-if she is God fearing she will give truthful reference

Fatimah bint Qays went to the Prophet seeking marital advice when both Mu’awiyah Ibin Abu Sufyan and Abu Jahm had proposed to her. The Prophet told her, "Mu’awiyah is stingy and tight fisted) and Abu Jahm beats his women." So marry Usamah instead. [Sahih Muslim (2/1114) No. 1480, Sunan Abu Dawud (2/285) No. 2284, Sunan Tirmidhi (3/440) No. 1134, Sunan An-Nasa'i (6/75) No. 3245]

-the prophet gave references good or bad
-he knew the characters of his flock who was kind and who was stingy
-some marry against advice and have to run from their violent husbands
