-hasad is the Arabic word for 'envy'

What Is The Definition Of "Envy?"
1. To see a person with Allah's barakah and you wish it was transferred from him to you

2. To see a person enjoying Allah's barakah and you want it to disappear
-this 2nd category is worse than the 1st category
-because you wish neither of you had the barakah

3. To see a person enjoying Allah's barakah and you hate it enough that you want to kill the person
-this 3rd category is the worst

People envy us for many reasons:
-self contentment
-our izza

Many of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) wish that if they could turn you away as disbelievers after you have believed, out of envy from their ownselves, even, after the truth (that Muhammad Peace be upon him is Allāh's Messenger) has become manifest unto them. But forgive and overlook, till Allāh brings His Command. Verily, Allāh is Able to do all things. (Al-Baqarah 2:109)

-our family structure
-the light on our face
-our good health
-we don't abuse alcohol, smoking, drugs so we don't suffer many of their diseases

-our deen
-Jews know that our religion is the religion they should be following
-how do we know this? See 2:146

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognise him (Muhammad or the Ka'bah at Makkah) as they recongise their sons. But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it - [i.e. the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Taurāt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:146)

Allah 'tala didn't bless the Jews with the sincerity to follow the truth
-the same way He didn't bless Pharaoh
-and shaytan had the disease of envy in his heart

Adam's body was laying in heaven but had no spirit in it yet
-shaytan said:

Mujahid narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) said: “Allah created four things with His Hand; 1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Aadam and 4. The paradise of ‘Adn. He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be] and it was.” [Adh Dhahabi in ‘Mukhtasar al-‘Uluw’ (p105), Abu al-Shaikh al-Asbahani in 'al-‘Adhuma' (5/1555), Tafsir al-Tabari (21/239), ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’]

Adam was created by His (swt)’s 2 hands,
-and Allah 'tala also created Paradise, the Pen and His (swt) Arsh
-Allah commanded the angels to bow to Adam and they all did, but shaytan did not
-he was a jinn who grew up in the company of angels

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)

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)

-in 2:34, some people think Iblīs was an angel, the way Zamakshari believed
-but 2:34 doesn't say he was an angel or a jinn
-so we have 18:50 to explain 2:34

Iblīs was green with envy because Allah 'tala blessed Adam with 5 things
-He (swt) created Adam with His 2 Hands
-He doesn't create something with His 2 Hands unless it was important to Him

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

~Allah 'tala said He created Adam with His 2 hands ~
-but many deviant groups do not believe in what Allah 'tala said
-some say the "2 hands" means "2 powers"
-a clock on a wall has 2 hands but do they resemble our 2 hands? No.

...There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

Shiites and Soofis can't accept this ayah as it was written
-they have kufr and shirk in their hearts and minds
-they say if He (swt) has 2 hands they are making Him (swt) similar to man
-but they borrowed this aqeeda of "2 Powers" from the Zoroastrians

Many of you think you're Muslim but you're still a Christian (as the Goofi Soofis)
-the same way Berailvis are still Hindus


ANSWER: ALLAH 'tala gave Adam 5 favours

1) He created him with His 2 Hands
-when He (swt) created animals, He said "be and it is"
-but man was created differently

By the fig, and the olive, (At-Tin 95:1)

By Mount Sinai, (At-Tin 95:2)

And by this city of security (Makkah), (At-Tin 95:3)

Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould), (At-Tin 95:4)

Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low, (At-Tin 95:5)

Save those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds, then they shall have a reward without end (Paradise). (At-Tin 95:6)

Then what (or who) causes you (O disbelievers) to deny the Recompense (i.e. Day of Resurrection)? (At-Tin 95:7)

Is not Allah the Best of judges? (At-Tin 95:8)

-the most noble of creation is man
-but homosexuals, bisexuals, devil-worshipers, are the lowest of the low

BOHEMIAN GROVE: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_Grove

-this is where the FREE MASONS gather together to worship Iblīs

2) He blew a spirit in him
3) He taught him the names of everything under the heaven
4) He put him in heaven to live
5) He commanded the angels to bow down to him (Adam)
-Adam is NOT in Paradise; he is in heaven
-you are weak in aqeeda if you don't know the difference between Paradise and Heaven

Allah said:

Their reward with their Lord is 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of Eternity), underneath which rivers flow, they will abide therein forever, Allah Well-Pleased with them, and they with Him. That is for him who fears his Lord. (Al-Baiyinah 98:8)

-when Allah speaks of heaven, he speaks of Jannah
-but of Paradise, he says "adn" to stress a place of eternity
-and they are 2 different places

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Allah said: 'I have prepared for My righteous servants what no eye has seen and no ear has heard, nor has it occurred to the human heart.'" Thus recite if you wish (1): "And no soul knows what joy for them (the inhabitants of Paradise) has been kept hidden (Qur'an Chapter 32 Verse 17)." (1) The words "Thus recite if you wish" are those of Abu Hurayrah. [Bukhari, Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah]

-this hadeeth proves to you that Adam was in Heaven, not in Paradise

Whenever you envy someone, you don't believe in QadrAllah properly
-you're trying to tell Him (swt) who to bless
-when you see someone enjoying Allah's barakah, say MASH'ALLAH
-don't say "ain" or you give them an evil-eye, which is a reality and it is ENVY
-when someone looks at your baby and they do not say 'Masha Allah',
-the baby might suffer from the evil-eye and you'll need to take them to a hospital
-but they can't diagnose the problem
-because it is the EVIL EYE

Sahl ibn Haneef that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came out and traveled with him towards Makkah, until they were in the mountain pass of al-Kharaar in al-Jahfah. There Sahl ibn Haneef did ghusl, and he was a handsome white-skinned man with beautiful skin. ‘Aamir ibn Rabee’ah, one of Banu ‘Adiyy ibn Ka’b looked at him whilst he was doing ghusl and said: “I have never seen such beautiful skin as this, not even the skin of a virgin,” and Sahl fell to the ground. They went to Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, can you do anything for Sahl, because by Allaah he cannot raise his head.” He said, “Do you accuse anyone with regard to him?” They said, “ ‘Aamir ibn Rabee’ah looked at him.” So the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) called ‘Aamir and rebuked him strongly. He said, “Why would one of you kill his brother? If you see something that you like, then pray for blessing for him.” Then he said to him, “Wash yourself for him.” So he washed his face, hands, forearms, knees and the sides of his feet, and inside his izaar (lower garment) in the vessel. Then that water was poured over him, and a man poured it over his head and back from behind. He did that to him, then Sahl got up and joined the people and there was nothing wrong with him. [Imam Ahmad (15550), Maalik (1811)]


1) EVIL eye is envy
2) EVIL eye can affect you physically
3) EVIL eye can affect your good looks, (when you're older)

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)

"While Allah has created you and what you make!" (As-Saffat 37:96)

-People use darkness of night to do haram: murder, witchcraft, envy

-because when someone envies you, they use black magic on you
-the way the Jews worked black magic on the Prophet (pbuh) so he'd forget things

Magic was worked on the Prophet so that he began to fancy that he was doing a thing which he was not actually doing. One day he invoked (Allah) for a long period and then said, "I feel that Allah has inspired me as how to cure myself. Two persons came to me (in my dream) and sat, one by my head and the other by my feet.One of them asked the other, "What is the ailment of this man?" The other replied, 'He has been bewitched" The first asked, 'Who has bewitched him?' The other replied, 'Lubaid bin Al-A'sam.' The first one asked, 'What material has he used?' The other replied,'A comb, the hair gathered on it, and the outer skin of the pollen of the male date-palm.' The first asked, 'Where is that?' The other replied, 'It is in the well of Dharwan. "So, the Prophet went out towards the well and then returned and said to me on his return, "Its date-palms (the date-palms near the well) are like the heads of the devils." I asked, "Did you take out those things with which the magic was worked?" He said, "No, for I have been cured by Allah and I am afraid that this action may spread evil amongst the people." Later on the well was filled up with earth. (Bukhari, Vol 4, No 490)

WARNING: The Mu'tazila reject the hadeeth that says black magic was done on the Rasool
-even though the hadeeth is in Bukhari and Muslim
-they think we're ridiculing the Prophet (saw)

So people use black magic to turn us into a worthless piece of nothing
-they envy us most for our knowledge

(Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)

-people who envy are trying to tell Allah 'tala whom to bless

[Iblis (Satan)] said: "See? This one whom You have honoured above me, if You give me respite (keep me alive) to the Day of Resurrection, I will surely seize and mislead his offspring (by sending them astray) all but a few!" (Al-Isra 17:62)

The deviant sects are turned and misled by Ibliss
-because he was envious of Allah 'tala preferring Adam over him
-so he turns us into devil-worshipers or homosexuals, or drug addicts
-"watch this space" means 'watch what I will do'
-Ibliss proved his threat and so all follow him but a few
-out of every 1000 only 1 enters Paradise

...Allah will say (to Adam), Bring out the people of the Fire.' Adam will say, 'What (how many) are the people of the Fire?' Allah will say, 'Out of every thousand (take out) nine-hundred and ninety-nine (persons).' [al-Bukhari (3348) and Muslim (222)]

-because Ibliss's threats came to past

ENVY caused him to launch his threat
-when a person envies you, he is saying to Allah 'why did you bless him and not me?'

Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty. (Al-Baqarah 2:105)

-but we can't tell Allah whom to bless
-He (swt) blesses whom He (swt) wills
-such as blessing Muhammad (saws) with Prophethood
-which made the Jews angry and envious because the Prophet didn't come from their line
-the Jews and Ibliss belong to the same aqeeda
-they used to tell Arabs that a prophet would come through Madina but
-Allah 'tala chose for the prophet to be an Arab

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognise him (Muhammad or the Ka'bah at Makkah) as they recongise their sons. But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it - [i.e. the qualities of Muhammad which are written in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:146)

-the Jews though, envy us for our honour and prestige
-so they try to humiliate us
-the last and greatest Prophet came from Ishmael not Ishaq

"Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage - Hajj and 'Umrah, etc.), and accept our repentance. Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:128)

-this dua is why it only took 23 years to bring the entire Arabian Peninsula
-under the fold of Islam

"Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own (and indeed Allah answered their invocation by sending Muhammad Peace be upon him ), who shall recite unto them Your Verses and instruct them in the Book (this Qur'an) and Al-Hikmah (full knowledge of the Islamic laws and jurisprudence or wisdom or Prophethood, etc.), and sanctify them. Verily! You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise." (Al-Baqarah 2:129)

The tafseer of this ayah is that Ibrahim prayed for Allah to send the Arabs Muhammad (saw)
-Ibrahim didn't pray for the bloodline to be a Jew but the Arabs, whose race is superior
-but what did the Arabs say to Muhammad (saws)?

Narrated By Abdullah (bin Masud): On the day of Badr, Al-Miqdad said, "O Allah's Apostle! We do not say to you as the children of Israel said to Moses, 'Go you and your Lord and fight you two; we are sitting here, (5.24) but (we say). "Proceed, and we are with you." That seemed to delight Allah's Apostle greatly. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #133]

-"we will never speak to you the way the Jews spoke to Musa"

Miqdad ibn Amr said to the Holy Prophet: “O Messenger of Allah command us with what Allah has ordained because you have our full support wholeheartedly. By Allah we will never say to you what Bani Israel said to Musa (i.e. you and your lord go and fight while we site and relax). But instead we say to you; you and your Lord go and fight and we shall be with you fighting for the cause of Allah. For by the one who has sent you with the truth if you march towards the highest mountains we shall march with you until we all reach it”. (Seerah an-Nabawiyya by Ibn Hisham Vol 1. Pg.614 & Musnad Ahmad Vol.1 pg.390)

-the Qur'an itself is the hujjah for the Arabs being the superior race
-al Khilafah min Quraish (the Caliphate comes from Quraish)

This matter (rule) will remain with the Quraish, and none will rebel against them, but Allah will throw him down on his face, as long as the Quraish uphold the Deen. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 89, Number #253]

The Jews and the shaytan worship their evil and corrupt desires, not Allah 'tala
-they are racist
-the 1st racist was Ibliss
-Israel is an apartheid regime (very racist)
-the white people of Europe and America are hypocrites
-because they criticized the apartheid of South Africa but not the apartheid of Israel

Shaikh said the apartheid in South Africa had infrastructure
-but in 2020, Gaza won't be liveable anymore
-that in Occupied Palestine is extremely brutal; they hate Arabs so much
-because Muhammad (saw) was an Arab and also, the language of the Qur'an, is Arabic
-they envy us for all of Islam

Ibn Masood (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: "Do not wish to be like anyone, except in two cases: (1) A man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously. (2) A man whom Allah has given wisdom (knowledge of the Qur'an and the Hadith) and he acts according to it and teaches it to others." [al-Bukhari (1409) and Muslim (816)]

Abu Huraira (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: (1) A continuous charity, (2) knowledge by which people derive benefit, (3) pious son who prays for him." [Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 38, Muslim (3/1255) No. 1631, Abu Dawud (3/117) No. 2880, al-Nasa'i (6/251) No. 3651, Tirmidhi (3/660) No. 1376, al-Darime (1/148) No. 559, Ahmad (2/372) No. 8831]

If you want to go to KSA or Egypt to study the deen, this would be good envy
-but we can never wish for someone to lose their wealth or knowledge

People who envy do not believe in QADR properly
-we can't tell Allah 'tala whom to bless

But Allāh chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allāh is the Owner of Great Bounty. (Al-Baqarah 2:105)

-this is what causes Jews to go to the Hellfire (their racism)

People envy us for our looks, our family, our spouses,
-our youth, our good health, our Islamic knowledge

Al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), asked his Companions about fornication and they said, "It is unlawful. Allah and His Messenger have made it unlawful." He said, "It is less serious for a man to fornicate with ten women than for him to fornicate with his neighbour's wife." Then he asked them about stealing. They replied, "It is unlawful. Allah and His Messenger have made it unlawful." He said, "It is less serious for a man to steal from ten houses than it is for him to steal from his neighbour's house." [al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari, No. 103, Musnad Ahmad (6/8) No. 23905 and al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (20/256) No. 605]

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Do not eavesdrop or spy on one another. Do not rival and envy one another nor despise and shun one another. Be worshippers of Allah and be brothers as Allah has commanded you to be.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (5144) and Sahîh Muslim (2563) with the wording as related by Muslim]

We announced that we do NOT make takfir on al-Bani
-but there's a room here called MUWAHHIDEEN PUBLICATIONS
-this is a Saudi Salafi room
-they said Shaikh Faisal makes takfir on Shaikh al-Bani
-but they are compulsive liars
-only an atheist would lie like that

"The learned are the inheritors of the Prophets"
-people envy us for our knowledge most of all

The Holy Prophet (saw) said, “The Scholars are the Inheritors of the Prophets” (Sunan At-Tirmidhi Vol. 5 p.2685)

"All in the heavens and earth and the fish in the depth of the water seek forgiveness for the scholar, and the superiority of the scholar over the worshipper is like the superiority of the full moon at night over the rest of the stars. Verily the scholars are the heirs to the Prophets. Verily, the Prophets did not bequeath deenars or dirhams. All they left behind was knowledge, so whoever takes it, has indeed acquired a huge fortune." [Musnad Ahmad (5/196) No. 21763; Also related by Abu Dawud (2/341) No. 3641; at-Tirmidhi (5/48) No. 2682; Ibn Majah (1/150) No. 223, ad-Daarimee (1/110) No. 342 and ibn Hibbaan (1/289) No. 88]

~When someone envies us, they automatically become our enemy~


Shaikh, doesn’t the hadith say to invoke Allah's barakah for the person/thing that’s beautiful rather than saying Masha Allah? Such as TabarakAllah or BarakAllah alaihi/alaiha

-hadith to this question was given before


Assalamu alaikum sheikh, can true blessings exist in foreign currency like the dollar, pound, etc. since neither of them is gold or silver (which is from Allah) and the things we buy with it is from jaahil human labour?

-Ghadafi had to die because he wanted to replace paper money with gold
-paper money is not real money
-the real wealth is gold and silver (coins)
-US dollars and euros are form of barakah; you use it to purchase
-and saves the lives of people every day
-whether you want to believe it or not the US dollar and euro are barakah
-everyone wants US passport to chase the dollar
-they run from morocco chasing the euro
-possibly 20 women to one man in morocco
-Allah blessed the kuffaar with wealth and good looks
-the barakah of health wealth oxygen and water everyone can get
-but the barakah of Islam Allah gives to who He wills
-only to those who He loves

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

Don’t envy the kuffar for their barakah
-don’t envy Carlos Slim and bill gates
-they are enjoying for a short while
-they may live for 100 years
-but even 100 years is a short time
-in the time of Noah people lived for 1000 years

It was recorded that Ibn Abbas said: "Nuh received his mission when he was forty years old, and he stayed among his people for a thousand years less fifty; after the Flood he lived for sixty years until people had increased and spread.'' [Tafseer Ibn Abi Hatim (9/3041) No. 17194 and Tafseer Ibn Katheer (6/268)]

-then they will be dumped in the hellfire
-so don’t envy them for the dunya

The Prophet Muhammad said: “The world is a prison for the believers and paradise for the unbelievers.” (Sahih Muslim (English translation) Vol. 4, pg.15290


Assalamu alaikum Shaikh, You said that the Arab race is superior. This is confusing as they are actually a linguistic group more than a race, like the Latinos are a linguistic group, being various races. How can one race be superior over another aside from being more pious than other?

This is a very important question
-if you have 2 Muslims, who are equal in piety
-one who is fluent in Arabic and the other doesn't speak it
-the one who speaks Arabic is BETTER because
-Arabic is the Sunnah of Allah 'tala and the language of the Qur'an

Saeed al-Jurairi narrated Abi Naddra told me of a sermon he heard from the Messenger of Allah (SAW) in middle during the Days of Tashreeq said: “O people, your Lord is One and your father [i.e., Adam] is one. There is no superiority of the Arab over the non-Arab, or of the non-Arab over the Arab, or of the red over the black, or of the black over the red – except with regard to taqwa...” [Musnad Ahmad (5/411) No. 23536]

Example: Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab spoke perfect Arabic
-but they are not preferred over a Pakistani Muslim who speaks Arabic
-because the latter is Muslim and Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab were not

وأيضا فإن نفس اللغة العربية من الدين، ومعرفتها فرض واجب، فإن فهم الكتاب والسنة فرض، ولا يفهم إلا بفهم اللغة العربية، وما لا يتم الواجب إلا به فهو واجب.
Ibn Taymiyyah said: "Moreover, the Arabic language itself is part of Islam, and knowing Arabic is an obligatory duty. If it is a duty to understand the Qur’an and Sunnah, and they cannot be understood without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfil the duty is also obligatory.” [Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem (1/527)]

Imam Shafi'i (rh) said: "Every Muslim is obligated to learn the Arabic tongue to the utmost of his power in order [to be able] to profess through it that "There is no Ilah but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger" and to utter what is mandated upon him, the takbir, and what is commanded, the tasbih, and the tashahhud and others." [al-Risala al-Shafi'i (pg. 47)] According to a hadith narrated from ’Umar (RA), he said: ("Learn Arabic for it is part of your Religion, and learn how the estate of the deceased should be divided (faraa‘id) for these are part of your Religion."). This command of ’Umar, to learn Arabic and the Sharee’ah combines the things that are needed, for Religion involves understanding words and actions. Understanding Arabic is the way to understand the words of Islâm, and understanding the Sunnah is the way to understand the actions of Islâm…" [Ibn Taymiyyah in 'Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem' (1/527-528)]

-people who don't speak Arabic have dodgy aqeeda
-the Jews love Hebrew more than the Muslims love Arabic
-Shaikh has heard people say in PalTalk that Allah doesn't hate anyone or anything
-it is haram to take deen from someone who can’t speak arabic

And if they had intended to march out, certainly, they would have made some preparation for it, but Allah was averse to their being sent forth, so He made them lag behind, and it was said (to them), "Sit you among those who sit (at home)." (At-Tawbah 9:46)

-Allah does hate, he says so in the Quran
-people like to take mic and pass dodgy fatwas; do not attend these rooms
-dodgy rooms turn you into confusd.com

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "If Allah has loved a servant [of His], He calls Gabriel (on whom be peace) and says: 'I love So-and-so, therefore love him.'" He (the Prophet - SAW) said: "So Gabriel loves him. Then he (Gabriel) calls out in heaven, saying: 'Allah loves So-and-so, therefore love him.'And the inhabitants of heaven love him." He (the Prophet - SAW) said: "Then acceptance is established for him on earth. And if Allah has abhorred a servant [of His], He calls Gabriel and says: 'I abhor So-and-so, therefore abhor him.' So Gabriel abhors him. Then Gabriel calls out to the inhabitants of heaven: 'Allah abhors So-and-so, therefore abhor him.'" He (the Prophet - SAW) said: "So they abhor him, and abhorrence is established for him on earth." [Muslim (also by al-Bukhari, Malik, and at-Tirmidhi).]


What countries can i study deen if i am above 27 years old?

-go to Egypt


I have several children and have been married for many years. I just learned today that my marriage (which was without a wali and without any witnesses) is bautil (not valid). We have been having serious marital problems though we love each other but it often doesn’t seem that way. What is the next step, should I move out so we’re not tempted to have sex and because we’re not married and I am not mahram to her? Should I leave the home immediately and we go our own ways to get counselling first then re-marry (if we change our ways and if Allah leads us) now that I have received hujjah, we cannot live in sin and jim3aa is now zina. JZK

-you have to get an Imam to marry you
-get counselling to sort out nushooz first

Ayshah reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If any woman marries without the consent of her guardian then her marriage is void. Her marriage is void. Her marriage is void. If he cohabits with her then for her is the dower with which her immodesty is turned lawful. And if they dispute with one another then the ruler is the guardian of one who has no gurardian”. [Tirmidhi 1104, Ahmed 24426, Abu Dawud 2083, Ibn e Majah 1879]

On the authority of Ibn Abbas (RA) Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “There is no marriage except with a guardian and two trustworthy witnesses.” (Bayhaqi and Daraqutni)

-the Shi’ites marry without witnesses
-they do mut’a, marrying for one hour


What to say to someone who holds to kufr duna kufr because ibn Abbas said so and the nabi made dua for him to understand the Quran?

-this is the aqeeda of Saudi salafis and MADkhalis
-scholars can’t make up their minds who said kufr dunya kufr
-some say Ta’woos said it
-the hadith is daeef

We submit for arguments sake that ibn Abbas said it
-but he said it during the caliphate of Ali
-because of the fitna between Ali and Muawiya
-when two Muslims fight it is minor kufr
-the Saudi salafis take ibn Abbas athaar and put a spin on it
-Ali did not dismantle the Shari’ah so ibn Abbas was not talking about the Shari’ah
-he was talking about the fitna of Ali and Muawiya

The Saudi salafis will brainwash you if you don’t know your aqeeda
-when the sahabah killed each other it is minor kufr not major
-these are the fatwas to flush kufr dunya kufr down the drain

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"

-Saudi salafis went against the ijmaa of the Muslims
-saying dismantling the Shari’ah is minor kufr
-you are great enemy of Islam to say this


Assalamu alaikum shaikh, I was wondering if taking medicine to relieve pain is a blessing from Allah swt or a fitna (test)

-you are allowed to take medicine to relieve pain
-going to the doctor is not shirk
-Allah sent the cures for all diseases

A’isha (RA), the wife of the Prophet (SAW), said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “There is no calamity that befalls a Muslim but Allah expiates (sin) thereby, even a thorn that pricks him.” [Narrated by al-Bukhari (5640) and Muslim (2572)]

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He also has created its treatment." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 71, Hadith #582]
