Bismillah...


14. THE DISEASE OF TRIBALISM
-this is a type of asabiyya similar to racism and nationalism

Tribalism is when you believe in the superiority of ones tribe over another
-the prophet (saw) said:

Narrated Jubair ibn Mut’im: The Messenger of Allah (SAW), said: "He is not one us who calls for `Asabiyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for `Asabiyah or who dies for `Asabiyah." [Sunan Abu Dawud (Vol. 2, pg. 753) No. 5121]

On the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "One who defected from obedience (to the Amir) and separated from the main body of the Muslims - if he died in that state - would die the death of one belonging to the days of Jahiliyya (i. e. would not die as a Muslim). One who fights under the banner of a people who is blind (to the cause for which they are fighting. i. e. do not know whether their cause is just or otherwise), who gets flared up with family pride, calls, (people) to fight for their family honour, and supports his kith and kin (i. e. fights not for the cause of Allah but for the sake of this family or tribe) - if he is killed (in this fight), he dies as one belonging to the days of Jahiliyya. Whoso attacks my Ummah (indiscriminately) killing the righteous and the wicked of them, sparing not (even) those staunch in faith and fulfilling not his promise made with those who have been given a pledge of security - he has nothing to do with me and I have nothing to do with him." [Sahih Muslim (3/1477) No. 1848, Musnad Ahmad (2/306) No. 8047, Sunan al-Nasa'i (7/123) No. 4114, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/95) No. 3948]

Asabiyya eats away the ummah
-e.g. the war in Somalia between the Saat and Abghal tribes
-has led to the displacement of many Somalis
-each of them believes they are the most suited to lead the country
-each refusing to back down

The civil war between these tribes led to destruction of the country
-and their tribalism is more important than the lives of the people

Also the massacres in Rwanda led to many killings
-between the Tutsis and the Hutus
-they hate each other because the Belgians were there and
-sowed the seeds of hatred between them
-so when the White man colonises they turn one tribe against the other
-and this example is found in other countries e.g. in S/Africa, Nigeria etc.

These tribes don’t like to inter marry, they make it a taboo even though they are Muslims
-the tribalism is more prevalent in their hearts than Islam
-so if there is a tribal war they have no qualms about killing their Muslim brothers
-tribalism is all over Africa and they are not allowed to marry outside their home
-the prophet said:

Abu Malik al-Ashari narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: ”There are four matters of jaahiliyyah that exist among my ummah and they will not give them up: boasting about one’s forefathers, casting aspersions upon people’s lineages, seeking rain by the stars and wailing for the dead.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 2 pg. 644) No. 934]

Allah said that the shaytan and his progeny are a tribe

O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitan (Satan) deceive you, as he got your parents [Adam and Hawwa (Eve)] out of Paradise, stripping them of their raiments, to show them their private parts. Verily, he and Qabiluhu (his soldiers from the jinns or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them. Verily, We made the Shayatin (devils) Auliya' (protectors and helpers) for those who believe not. (Al-A'raf 7:27)

-and they can see us from an angle we can’t
-so let them not deceive us

Tribalism was the cause Abu Jahl refused to embrace Islam
-after al Isra wal mi’ raj, the kaafirs of Quraish did not believe him and tried to ridicule him
-they asked him to describe masjid al Aqsa for them and he did
-so the kaafirs said to Abu Jahl that there is no doubt he is the messenger of Allah
-so why not he embrace Islam
-he said between his tribe and that of the prophet is a competition
-so he rather not capitulate towards the prophet's tribe

Some people joined the army of Musaylima from the Banu Tamim tribe
-and their attitude was they don’t care if he is a real prophet or not, they will join his army
-so 1000s got killed in his army in the name of tribalism
-they were not concerned about the cause they were fighting for
-all they cared about was he was from their tribe
-so they chose hellfire over paradise in the name of tribalism


15. THE DISEASE OF HYPOCRISY

To say with your lips the opposite of what is in your heart
-there are 2 types

1. HYPOCRISY OF THE LIMBS (amalee)

2. HYPOCRISY OF THE HEART (qalbee)

The former is minor hypocrisy
-but the latter is major hypocrisy
-hypocrisy of the limbs is like drinking alcohol and committing zina
-this does not make you a kaafir

Hypocrisy of the heart is when you claim you believe in Allah and judgement day
-but you doubt in them
-this makes you a kaafir because you are not allowed to doubt
-certainty is a condition of shahada

SIGNS OF HYPOCRISY:

1. WHEN HE SPEAKS HE LIES

2. WHEN HE MAKES A PROMISE HE BREAKS IT

'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)]

-if a person promises you and failed because his car broke down
-you cannot say he is a hypocrite

3. HE IS TREACHEROUS WHEN ENTRUSTED WITH AN AMANA

4. WHEN HE DISPUTES HE IS ABUSIVE

So expect the tongue of a munafiq to be dirty
-they can even call their wives names
-even though Allah said name calling is haram

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one's brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: "O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.). (Al-Hujurat 49:11)


5. HE ENTERTAINS FALSE IDEAS ABOUT ALLAH

There, the believers were tried and shaken with a mighty shaking. (Al-Ahzab 33:11)

And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease (of doubts) said: "Allah and His Messenger (SAW) promised us nothing but delusions!" (Al-Ahzab 33:12)

-they say Allah makes false promises
-and entertain bad ideas about Allah and His messenger

(when the eyes grew wild and the hearts reached to the throats, and you were harboring doubts about Allah.) "The believers had all kinds of doubts, and hypocrisy emerged to such an extent that Mu'attib bin Qushayr, the brother of Banu Amr bin Awf said: Muhammad was promising us that we would win the treasure of Chosroes and Caesar, but one of us cannot even go and relieve himself.' [Tafseer al-Tabari (20/218) and Tafseer Ibn Katheer (6/388)]

How can a person have this believe?
-this ayah was revealed during the digging of the trench
-when the prophet hit the rock and promised the Muslims victory against Rome and Persia


6. HE LIKES TO SIT WHERE ALLAH'S SIGNS ARE RIDICULED

-there are some rooms in PT where people make a mockery of Allah
-they allow prostitutes to take mic and mock Islam and they have no qualms about it
-this is because they opened the room not for Allah but for fame and fortune
-Allah spoke about them:

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)


7. THEY MAKE FALSE CLAIM TO EMAAN

-they claim to believe but they don’t
-Allah said:

When the hypocrites come to you (O Muhammad SAW), they say: "We bear witness that you are indeed the Messenger of Allah." Allah knows that you are indeed His Messenger and Allah bears witness that the hypocrites are liars indeed. (Al-Munafiqun 63:1)

-and they think the Muslims are so stupid not to realise their hypocrisy
-Allah dismissed their shahada as false because they are faking it


8. HE LIKES TO SAY WALLAHI AND LIE

-this is because he knows this word touches a nerve with the Muslims

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)

-and the Muslims will believe them
-they hide behind wallahi to deceive unsuspecting Muslims who are naive


9. WHENEVER THEY GO TO THE FRONTLINE THEY SOW THE SEEDS OF DISCORD

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

-i know you like to take a lot of brothers with you to the frontline
-but go for quality not quantity
-because Allah said some among you will cause discord
-and some Muslims will listen to these munafiqs
-when Abdullah ibn Ubai went for Uhud, he turned back and took away with him many
-he caused 300 men to turn back with him


10. HE HATES TO SPEND

-Allah said:

And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger (Muhammad SAW); and that they came not to As-Salat (the prayer) except in a lazy state; and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly. (At-Tawbah 9:54)

-they hate to spend fisabilillah
-and if they do they frown about it
-and do so unwillingly
-this is because they fear poverty

When Allah said if you give money He gives it back to you 10 times manifold
-he thinks this is a fake promise


11. SALAH IS A BURDEN ON HIM

-especially salatul fajr
-you are not supposed to miss your prayers
-you should join them


12. THEY HAVE NO AL WALAA WAL BARAA

Have you (O Muhammad SAW) not observed the hypocrites who say to their friends among the people of the Scripture who disbelieve: "(By Allah) If you are expelled, we (too) indeed will go out with you, and we shall never obey any one against you, and if you are attacked (in fight), we shall indeed help you." But Allah is Witness, that they verily, are liars. (Al-Hashr 59:11)

-they cheer for the kuffaar not the Muslims

Surely, if they (the Jews) are expelled, never will they (hypocrites) go out with them, and if they are attacked, they will never help them. And if they do help them, they (hypocrites) will turn their backs, so they will not be victorious. (Al-Hashr 59:12)

-they take the people of the book as their friends
-they don’t love and hate for the sake of Allah
-but their love is to the munafiq

The biggest munafiq in the UK now is Abu Khadija
-he said when shaikh Usaama (RH) was killed he was happier than the kuffaar

Whenever a person is a munafiq the people listen to him
-people listen to and believe the dodgy scholars

Anas ibn Malik (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, ‘The time of the Dajjal will be years of confusion. People will believe a liar, and disbelieve one who tells the truth. People will distrust one who is trustworthy, and trust one who is treacherous; and the Ruwaybidah will have a say.’ Someone asked, ‘Who are the Ruwaybidah?’ He said, ‘Those who rebel against Allah and will have a say in general affairs.’” [Musnad Ahmad (3/220) No. 13322]


13. HE STARTS A FITNA AND PRETENDS HE DOES NOT KNOW WHO IS BEHIND IT

-look at the man who made the film innocence of Muslims
-he used a fake name and fake identity
-what makes you think you can hide
-he is a donkey and a coward
-even the edl in the UK only pick on hijabi women
-this is why a woman need to get married and not leave without a mahram
-especially in darul harb

Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them. And when they stand up for As-Salat (the prayer), they stand with laziness and to be seen of men, and they do not remember Allah but little. (An-Nisa 4:142)


14. THEY ARE RELUCTANT TO PRAY
-and they pray to be seen of men


15. THEY HATE JIHAD AND THE MUJAHIDEEN
-Allah said:

Those who believe say: "Why is not a Surah (chapter of the Qur'an) sent down (for us)? But when a decisive Surah (explaining and ordering things) is sent down, and fighting (Jihad ¬ holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is mentioned (i.e. ordained) therein, you will see those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy) looking at you with a look of one fainting to death. But it was better for them (hypocrites, to listen to Allah and to obey Him). (Muhammad 47:20)

-the hypocrites used to look at the prophet as if they will drop down and faint and die
-whenever a surah on jihad was revealed
-but it would have been better for them to fight
-because if you do the kuffaar won’t occupy your lands and steal your oil

Don’t be surprised when they say no jihad without a caliph
-or the mujahideen are upon the manhaj of the shaytan

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

If there is no jihad without a caliph why did shaikh Bin Baz pass the fatwa for jihad against the soviets?
-when the Muslims fought the Tatars at the battle of Ain Jaloot there was no caliph


16. WHENEVER HE GOES TO A HALQA HE CAN’T RETAIN THE KNOWLEDGE

And among them are some who listen to you (O Muhammad SAW) till, when they go out from you, they say to those who have received knowledge: "What has he said just now? Such are men whose hearts Allah has sealed, and they follow their lusts (evil desires). (Muhammad 47:16)

-this ayah tells you they can’t retain the knowledge
-and when he goes for jumuah he sleeps during the khutba
-even though it may not be boring
-but he finds Hollywood interesting
-the prophet said:

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “Two characterstics cannot combine in a hypocrite: good character and an understanding of religion.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/49) No. 2684, al-Thiqat Ibn Hibban (8/227) No. 13149, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (8/75) No. 8010, al-Madkhal ila al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (pg. 256) No. 357]

-when you take him to a halaqah you are bothering him
-he thinks you are harassing him because it is not his interest to learn the deen


17. THEY RIDICULE QUR'AN AND SUNNAH
-they speak about the Qur'an sarcastically
-Allah said:

And whenever there comes down a Surah (chapter from the Qur'an), some of them (hypocrites) say: "Which of you has had his Faith increased by it?" As for those who believe, it has increased their Faith, and they rejoice. (At-Tawbah 9:124)

If you ask them (about this), they declare: "We were only talking idly and joking." Say: "Was it at Allah, and His Ayat (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 Mujrimun (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, criminals, etc.). (At-Tawbah 9:66)


18. THEY PRACTICE RIYAH, TO SHOW OFF
-Allah said:

Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? (Al-Ma'un 107:1)

That is he who repulses the orphan (harshly), (Al-Ma'un 107:2)

And urges not the feeding of AlMiskin (the poor), (Al-Ma'un 107:3)

So woe unto those performers of Salat (prayers) (hypocrites), (Al-Ma'un 107:4)

Who delay their Salat (prayer) from their stated fixed times, (Al-Ma'un 107:5)

Those who do good deeds only to be seen (of men), (Al-Ma'un 107:6)

And refuse Al-Ma'un (small kindnesses e.g. salt, sugar, water, etc.). (Al-Ma'un 107:7)


19. THEY DONT REMEMBER ALLAH

...They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:67)

-they don't practice dhikr

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) said, “The world, with all that it contains, is accursed except for dhikr (the remembrance of Allah) that which pleases Allah; and the religious scholars and seekers of knowledge.'' [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/561) 2322 and Sunan Ibn Majah (5/231) 4112, (Abu Eesa al-Tirmidhi said: this hadeeth is hasan ghareeb)]

-the way you treat Allah 'tala, He (swt) will treat you the same way
-everything else in the dunya is cursed


20. HE HAS BAD AKHLAQ

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “Two characterstics cannot combine in a hypocrite: good character and an understanding of religion.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/49) No. 2684, al-Thiqat Ibn Hibban (8/227) No. 13149, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (8/75) No. 8010, al-Madkhal ila al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (pg. 256) No. 357]


21. HE IS JAAHIL IN REGARDS TO AQEEDA AND FIQH
-the creed and jurisprudence
-and he denies what is known of Islam by necessity
-e.g. Allah is above the Arsh
-and Allah is the law giver
-he will tell you Tawheed haakimiyya is a bid'ah
-but if it is so why did prophet Yusuf teach it in prison

It is ijmaa that every soul will taste death
-but they will tell you Muhammad (saw) is alive in his grave
-he is jaahil because the deen is not his interest

Everyone shall taste death...(Aali Imran 3:185)


22. HE PAYS ATTENTION TO HIS EXTERNAL APPEARANCE AND FORGET HIS HEART
-he grows his beard but does not purify his intention
-he has his trousers below his ankle, grows a long beard and wears a nice thobe
-but if you sit with him you hear filth coming out of his mouth
-he thinks the Muslims are naive and so will pay attention to his clothing

Ask him about democracy and he will tell you it is shura
-yet you are impressed about his external appearance

On the authority of Abu Huraira: "Verily Allah does not look to your bodies nor to your faces but He looks to your hearts," and he pointed towards the heart with his fingers. [Sahih Muslim, Book 32, Hadith #6220]

And when you look at them, their bodies please you; and when they speak, you listen to their words. They are as blocks of wood propped up. They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemies, so beware of them. May Allah curse them! How are they denying (or deviating from) the Right Path. (Al-Munafiqun 63:4)

-so as a believer you have to go deeper and stop looking at only the external appearance
-the Goofi Soofi and Qaadiyani wear the hijab


23. HE HIGHLIGHTS THE NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF ISLAMIC HISTORY
-so if he is at a study circle he will say if Islam is the truth
-why did Aisha and Ali fight at the battle of the camel
-or Ali and Mu’awiya fight at the battle of siffin
-why don’t you talk about the positive aspects of Islam like when Amr ibn Al As conquered Egypt
-he said Egypt is so important to the Muslims its leader is like the caliph

Why not talk about the battle of Ain Jaloot when the Tatars got defeated in battle
-why don’t you talk about the battle of Qaadisiyyah when the Muslims conquered Persia
-why not talk about 1453 when Muhammad al Faatih conquered Constantinople
-or Tariq ibn Ziyad who conquered Spain

A man approached Hassan Al Basri to ask about the fitna of Ali and Mu’awiya
-he answered the man with a beautiful ayah

That was a nation who has passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do. (Al-Baqarah 2:134)


24. HE LIKES TO ASK QUESTIONS ONLY ALLAH CAN ANSWER
-a man came to imam Malik’s halaqah and asked how Allah is on the throne

Ja'far Ibn Abdullah narrated: We were with Malik Ibn Anas when a man came to him and said: “O Abu Abdullah (Allah said) 'Ar-Rahman upon the Throne Istawa' (20:5), how was His Istiwa? Imam Malik inclined his head and was silent until the sweat of fever covered his brow, then he looked up and said: "Istiwa is not unknown, the Kayf (how) is uncomprehendable, believing in it is wajib (obligatory), and asking about it is bid'ah (innovation), and I do not think that you are anything but an innovator." Then he ordered that the man be expelled. [Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

-hypocrisy is contagious that's why he kicked the man out
-and Imam Malik was not the first to kick someone out and he won’t be the last
-Hassan al Basri kicked Waasil ibn Ataa out

There are 3 categories in the world
1. Muslim
2. Kaafir
3. Munafiq


25. THE MUNAFIQ SLANDERS ULAMA OF HAQQ

Those who defame such of the believers who give charity (in Allah's Cause) voluntarily, and those who could not find to give charity (in Allah's Cause) except what is available to them, so they mock at them (believers), Allah will throw back their mockery on them, and they shall have a painful torment. (At-Tawbah 9:79)

-they wrote books about Anwar Awlaki and shaikh Abu Muhammad al Maqdisi
-also shaikh Usaama
-they hate you because of la ilaha illallah
-not because you seduce their wife

Muhammad Ibrahim [the shaikh of bin Baaz] said in page 6 of his book Tahkeem al Qawaneen: "Tawheed haakimiyya is the twin half of tawheed Ibaada."

-they hate those because of tawheed haakimiyya
-but the shaikh of Bin Baz and Ali Tamimi taught them this aspect of tawheed
-but they renounced them


26. THEY SPREAD IFK, SEXUAL SLANDERS
-Abdullah ibn Ubayy spread the ifk about Aisha
-he was a munafiq
-Umar hated him for what he did to Aisha and so he refused the prophet to pray over him

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: Abdullah son of Abdullah ibn Ubayy came to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) when his father died, and said, ‘Give me your shirt that I may shroud him in it, and offer his funeral Salah and seek forgiveness for him.” So, he gave him his shirt and said, “When you are over (with preparations), call me.” When he intended to offer the Salah, Umar pulled him, saying, “Has not Allah forbidden us to pray over the hypocrites?” He said, “I am between two options either to seek forgiveness for them or not to seek forgiveness for them”, and he offered Salah over him. So Allah revealed. "And never offer a prayer on any one of them who dies, and do not stand by his grave." (At-Tawbah 9:84) [al-Bukhari (1269) and Muslim (2774)]

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)

They know that sexual slanders sell
-that is why Julian Assange is finished
-because they accused him of this


27. HE HAS NO SABR WITH QADRALLAH
-there is no Qur'anic verse that says you have to be pleased with qadr
-if you lost a child you can’t be pleased with that
-but you have to be patient with qadr

And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. (Al-Hajj 22:11)

As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and gifts, then he says (puffed up): "My Lord has honoured me." (Al-Fajr 89:15)

But when He tries him, by straitening his means of life, he says: "My Lord has humiliated me!" (Al-Fajr 89:16)

-ayats to prove the munafiq has no patience with qadr are above
-Allah said after hardship comes ease
-yet he has no sabr


28. HE IS JEALOUS OF THE TAQWA OF THE BELIEVERS
-so he tries to make rumours about them
-Allah said:

Being miserly towards you (as regards help and aid in Allah's Cause). Then when fear comes, you will see them looking to you, their eyes revolving like (those of) one over whom hovers death, but when the fear departs, they will smite you with sharp tongues, miserly towards (spending anything in any) good (and only covetous of booty and wealth). Such have not believed. Therefore Allah makes their deeds fruitless, and that is ever easy for Allah. (Al-Ahzab 33:19)

-their tongues are like the razor blade


29. THEY GO TO THE FRONTLINE FOR BOOTY
-and they argue about the portion they receive

Abu Said al-Khudri reported: 'Ali b. Abu Talib sent to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) from Yemen some gold alloyed with clay in a leather bag dyed in the leaves of Mimosa flava.He distributed it among four men. 'Uyaina b. Hisna, Aqra' b. Habis and Zaid al-Khail, and the fourth one was either Alqama b. 'Ulatha or 'Amir b. Tufail. A person from among his (Prophet's) Companions said: We had a better claim to this (wealth) than these (persons). This (remark) reached the Apostle of Allah (SAW) upon which he said: Will you not trust me, whereas I am a trustee of Him Who is in the heaven? The news come to me from the heaven morning and evening. Then there stood up a person with deep sunken eyes, prominent cheek bones, and elevated forehead, thick beard, shaven head, tucked up loin cloth, and he said: Messenger of Allah, fear Allah. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Woe to thee, do I not deserve most to fear Allah amongst the people of the earth? That man then returned. Khalid b. Walid then said: Messenger of Allah, should I not strike his neck? Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: Perhaps he may be observing the prayer. Khalid said: How many observers of prayer are there who profess with their tongue what is not in their heart? Upon this the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I have not been commanded to pierce through the hearts of people, nor to split their bellies (insides). He again looked at him and he was going back. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: There would arise a people from the progeny of this (man) who would recite the Qur'an glibly, but it would not go beyond their throats; they would (hurriedly) pass through (the teachings of their) religion just as the arrow passes through the prey. I conceive that he (the Holy Prophet) also said this: If I find them I would certainly kill them as were killed the (people of) Thamud. [Sahih Muslim, Book 5, Hadith #2319]

-like Dhul Khuwaisara did
-so they go to the frontline for booty and to argue about their portion too
-they say they did not get enough
-because they are only concerned about the dunya


30. HE PREACHES ONE THING AND PRACTICES ANOTHER THING


31. HE HAS DOUBLE STANDARDS AND CONTRADICTIONS IN HIS POLICIES
-if you insult a foreigner they say you are practicing xenophobia
-if you insult a Hindu they say you are intolerant
-if you insult a gay they say you are homophobic
-if you insult a Jew, you are anti-sematic
-if you insult Muhammad (saw) they say freedom of speech
-so only the Muslims can be insulted

The white kuffaar are the masters of hypocrisy
-every kaafir is a hypocrite and every hypocrite is a kaafir


32. THEY SPREAD MISCHIEF ON EARTH AND SAY THEY ARE PEACE MAKERS
-hypocrites like the UN

And when it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "We are only peacemakers." (Al-Baqarah 2:11)

Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not. (Al-Baqarah 2:12)

And among them is he who says:"Grant me leave (to be exempted from Jihad) and put me not into trial." Surely, they have fallen into trial. And verily, Hell is surrounding the disbelievers. (At-Tawbah 9:49)


33. THEY ARE VERY EVASIVE WITH REGARDS TO JIHAD
-they said they can’t go for the Tabuk expedition
-because they have a weakness for the Syrian girls
-but Allah said they already have fitna
-the fitna of hypocrisy
-they will find a million excuse why they can’t go


34. THEY FORBID THE GOOD AND ENJOIN EVIL

The hypocrites, men and women, are from one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief and polytheism of all kinds and all that Islam has forbidden), and forbid (people) from Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and they close their hands [from giving (spending in Allah's Cause) alms, etc.]. They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:67)

ARE WE ALLOWED TO KILL THE MUNAFIQ?
-yes we are allowed
-evidence:

O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed is that destination. (At-Tawbah 9:73)

Al-Hafiz Abu Ishaq Ibrahim bin `Abdur-Rahman bin Ibrahim bin Duhaym recorded that Damrah narrated that two men took their dispute to the Prophet (SAW), and he gave a judgment to the benefit of whoever among them had the right. The person who lost the dispute said, “I do not agree.” The other person asked him, “What do you want then” He said, “Let us go to Abu Bakr As-Siddiq.” They went to Abu Bakr and the person who won the dispute said, “We went to the Prophet (SAW) with our dispute and he issued a decision in my favor.” Abu Bakr said, “Then the decision is that which the Messenger of Allah (SAW) issued.” The person who lost the dispute still rejected the decision and said, “Let us go to `Umar bin Al-Khattab.” When they went to `Umar, the person who won the dispute said, “We took our dispute to the Prophet (SAW) and he decided in my favor, but this man refused to submit to the decision.” `Umar bin Al-Khattab asked the second man and he concurred. `Umar went to his house and emerged from it holding aloft his sword. He struck the head of the man who rejected the Prophet’s decision with the sword and killed him. Consequently, Allah revealed, [فَلا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّى يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ] (But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you judge in all disputes between them... (An-Nisa 4:65)). [Tafseer Ibn Katheer (2/351-352)]

-the prophet did not rebuke Umar so you are allowed to kill the munafiq
-but this is left to the discretion of the imam
-not to the lay man

A man might seduce your daughter and you make takfir on him for personal reasons
-so the imam has to make the ruling not you
-zina does not make a person a munafiq but a faasiq

People are quick to make takfir when their feelings are hurt
-so you can’t make the takfir

Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam from Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "O Allah! Do not make my grave an idol that is worshipped. The anger on those who took the graves of their Prophets as places of prostration was terrible." [Muwatta Malik (1/223) No. 570, Musannaf Abdur Razzaq (1/406) No. 1587, Musnad Ahmad (2/246) No. 7352]

-the only kufr that makes you a kaafir is MAJOR kufr

QUESTION 5:-
Is circumcision haram or halal for female and the male?



ANSWER 5:-
-this is waajib for the male but optional for the female
-you can't impose it on her; at age 6, she should be given a choice

Narrated By Abu Huraira: I heard the Prophet saying. "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitra: circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, cutting the moustaches short, clipping the nails, and depilating the hair of the armpits." [al-Bukhari (6297) and Muslim (496)]

-Hanbali fiqh is to circumcise all males
-there's no daleel to circumcise females but we know FGM is haram

Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah." And whoever takes Shaitan (Satan) as a Wali (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss. (An-Nisa 4:119)

ANSWER 6:-

...This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But as for him who is forced by severe hunger, with no inclination to sin (such can eat these above-mentioned meats), then surely, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

QUESTION 8:-

Assalamu alaikum shaikh, my son’s kafir doctor has a habit of using idioms to express feelings of hope, such as "knock wood" and let's keep our fingers crossed". Is it enough that i ignore him and turn my head away when he says such things or do i have to say something against this? Do i need to repent for not speaking out against such rubbish?


ANSWER 8:-
-ignore them because you're living in darul harb
-if they are old, they might not change from these superstitious beliefs
-if he prescribes medicine for an ailment, then these statements didn't affect his professionalism
-use a Muslim doctor if you are concerned about these statements
