«عن أم المؤمنين أم عبد الله عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس منه فهو رد» .
رواه البخاري ومسلم.
وفي رواية لمسلم «من عمل عملا ليس عليه أمرنا فهو رد» .

On the authority of the mother of the faithful, Aaishah (RA), who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "He who innovates something in this matter of ours [i.e., Islam] that is not of it will have it rejected [by Allah]." Related by al-Bukhari and Muslim
In one version by Muslim it reads: "He, who does an act which we have not commanded, will have it rejected [by Allah]."

Before explaining the hadith in details, a look at Aisha
-she is narrator of hadith number 5
-Aisha means someone who is lively and full of life
-married to the prophet (saw) at young age and became a scholar of Islam
-there is confusion/conflict on age of marriage between scholars and historians
-a hadith in Bukhari said she got married at age 9
-this conflict will go on and on
-shaikh takes sides with the historians on this issue

Aisha took part in the battle of Uhud, pouring water no the mujahids

Narrated Anas: On the day of the battle of Uhud, the people ran away, leaving the Prophet, but Abu-Talha was shielding the Prophet with his shield in front of him. Abu Talha was a strong, experienced archer who used to keep his arrow bow strong and well stretched. On that day he broke two or three arrow bows. If any man passed by carrying a quiver full of arrows, the Prophet would say to him, "Empty it in front of Abu Talha." When the Prophet started looking at the enemy by raising his head, Abu Talha said, "O Allah's Prophet! Let my parents be sacrificed for your sake! Please don't raise your head and make it visible, lest an arrow of the enemy should hit you. Let my neck and chest be wounded instead of yours." (On that day) I saw `Aisha, the daughter of Abu Bakr and Um Sulaim both lifting their dresses up so that I was able to see the ornaments of their legs, and they were carrying the water skins of their arms to pour the water into the mouths of the thirsty people and then go back and fill them and come to pour the water into the mouths of the people again. (On that day) Abu Talha's sword fell from his hand twice or thrice. [Sahih Bukhari (5/37) No. 3811]

-it is a well- known fact that prophet did not take kids with him to the battlefield
-Bukhari says that Aisha took part in the battle of Uhud, so she must be a full grown woman

Ibn Umar (RA) narrated: I was presented before Allah’s Messenger (SAW) for the army when I was fourteen years old. But, he did not enlist me. Then, the next year I was presented to him for the army being fifteen years and he took me. Nafi’ said: I narrated this hadith to Umar ibn Abdul Aziz and he said, “The limit between a minor and a major (is this).” Then he wrote (to his officers) that those who attain the age of fifteen may be given share in spoils of war. [al-Bukhari (2664) and Muslim (1868)]

The prophet (saw) turned back 15 year olds so how could he take a 9 year old to the battle
-this doesn’t stand up to scrutiny
-the books on Aisha said she was born 612C.E some say 610C.E
-they can't make up their minds
-there was no registrar

So her birthday is confusing
-the hijra of rasool (saw) was 622C.E
-this would mean she was 12 years old when she migrated
-14 when consummated
-the matter needs proper research, instead of believing what you hear
-do your own research

Tabari and ibn Kathir said that Asma, sister of Aisha migrated when she was 27
-and she was 10 years older that Aisha
-so the prophet took her to Uhud because she was full grown and not a child
-she must have been 19 or 20
-the idea that the prophet would take 9 year olds to battle does not make sense

The narrator of the hadith about her age became old and senile


Narrated By 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle said (to me), "You were shown to me twice in (my) dream. Behold, a man was carrying you in a silken piece of cloth and said to me, "She is your wife, so uncover her,' and behold, it was you. I would then say (to myself), 'If this is from Allah, then it must happen.'" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 87, Hadith #139]

1) The angel Jibril presented her in a dream to the prophet

2) She was the only virgin wife

3) The rasool passed away on her laps

4) The revelation would come down to the prophet in her bed

...the Prophet said, "O Um Salama! Don't trouble me by harming `Aisha, for by Allah, the Divine Inspiration never came to me while I was under the blanket of any woman amongst you except her." [Sahih Bukhari (5/30) No. 3775]

-why didn’t revelation come down while he was with other wives?
-Because she was a virgin, her bed was pure

5) She was the daughter of his closest companion

6) She was the daughter of the first caliph, the successor of the prophet

7) She was his favourite wife

8) She was the greatest scholar of Islam to ever live

She was able to memorise the knowledge because of her youth
-3 wives memorised the Quran:
Aisha, umm Salama and Hafsa

9) She was extremely charitable to strangers and she kept close ties of kinship

Narrated By Jubair bin Mut'im: That he heard the Prophet saying, "The person who severs the bond of kinship will not enter Paradise." [al-Bukhari (5984) and Muslim (2556)]

10) She was extremely brave and had the love for the battlefield

-she asked to go to battle but the prophet told her the jihad of a woman is to make hajj

Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: I said: "O Messenger of Allah! We consider Jihad as the best deed, should we not then go for Jihad?" The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "The best Jihad for you women is Hajj Mabrur (i.e., one accepted by Allah)." [Al-Bukhari].


The first dark day was the ifk: when the hypocrites slandered her and said she had an affair

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (An-Nur 24:11)

-surah 24:11 was revealed to say she was wrongly accused

The other dark day is when Uthman was killed
-when Uthman was killed Ali became caliph.
-Aisha asked him to take revenge for Uthman’s death
-but Ali said he needed to investigate more before doing that

Aisha gave a public speech and got the people to march against Ali,
-because he was taking too long to make a judgement
-Ali’s army defeated her army
-she wanted someone else to be the caliph that was why she marched against Ali

Talha had a liking for Aisha
-he would say when the prophet died Aisha would be his
-the prophet was alive when Talha made the statement
-but the prophet (saw) did not move on him, he understood human nature
Allah revealed that no one is allowed to marry prophet’s wives after he passes away
-the prophet didn't like to tell his sahabah off
-but the shites have their own history
-they believed that Aisha hated Ali because when she was accused, Ali was not there for her

...Usama bin Zaid told Allah's Apostle of what he knew about the innocence of his wife and of his affection he kept for her. He said, "O Allah's Apostle! She is your wife, and we do not know anything about her except good." But 'Ali bin Abi Talib said, "O Allah's Apostle! Allah does not impose restrictions on you; and there are plenty of women other than her. If you however, ask (her) slave girl, she will tell you the truth."... [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #274]

-the Shiites try to say that they knew what Aisha was thinking
-when Uthman was stabbed his blood fell on an ayat of the Quran

So Allāh will suffice you against them. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:137)

They said that Uthman was practicing nepotism/ favouritism with his family
-they stabbed him when he was reciting the Quran
-Uthman’s wife came to his rescue but got some fingers cut off

Ali was trying to find out what happened.
-Aisha wasn’t satisfied and led an army against Ali,
-her co wife wrote a letter to tell her it is for men not women to do this
-but she went ahead with the army
-she dies in medina in 678C.E at the age of 66

We spoke about Aisha because she was the one who narrated the hadith
-this hadith is talking about bid’ah
-a cursed innovation
-the rasool (saw) said if you live long you will see differences
-so hold on the Sunnah

...Those of you who survive will see many discords. Beware; refrain from innovations in religion, for that is error. So, he of you who encounters that must adhere to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs. All of you should hold that firmly with your teeth.” [Tirmidhi 2685, Ahmed 17145, Abu Dawud 4607, Ibn Majah 42]

-people introduce matters into the deen for corrupted desires
-some believe Islam is boring so let’s spice it up
-they add things to Islam
-there are people who believe that Islam is too difficult, so let us subtract from it
-23:71 warns of this

And if the truth had been in accordance with their desires, verily, the heavens and the earth, and whosoever is therein would have been corrupted! Nay, We have brought them their reminder, but they turn away from their reminder. (Al-Mu'minun 23:71)

Do not underestimate the evil desires of people
-they allow same sex marriage and open animal brothels


-it is better to overestimate the evil of your enemy

Bid’ah means to start something new; what the prophet (saw) did not legislate
-you are not allowed to subtract from Islam
-because Allah says that He neglected nothing in the book

There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)

Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you (really) love Allāh then follow me (i.e. accept Islāmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'ān and the Sunnah), Allāh will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allāh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Aali Imran 3:31)

He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), has indeed obeyed Allāh, but he who turns away, then we have not sent you (O Muhammad SAW) as a watcher over them. (An-Nisa 4:80)

-the people of bid’ah were asked by Allah in surah 49:16

Say: "Will you inform Allāh about your religion? While Allāh knows all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, and Allāh is All-Aware of everything. (Al-Hujurat 49:16)

-those who add and subtract from Islam are asked this

The priests and nuns are practicing bid’ah 57:27

But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allāh therewith, but that they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fāsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allāh). (Al-Hadid

-Allah says they went to the extreme
-they stay away from marriage for life-but dabble in paedophilia and homosexuality

The deen is perfect so do not add or subtract to it

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islām 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, Allāh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allāh is never unjust to (His) slaves. (Aali Imran 3:182)

Allāh burdens not a person beyond his scope(Al-Baqarah 2:286) not 2:186

O you who believe! Do not put (yourselves) forward before Allāh and His Messenger (SAW), and fear Allāh. Verily! Allāh is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Al-Hujurat 49:1)

-surrender to Quran and Sunnah

There is bid’ah in regards to aqeeda/fiqh/manhaj/ibaadah
-the worst bid’ah is in regards to aqeeda
-aqeeda affects sharia
-ma’ moon a Mu’tazilite believed that Quran was created
-he flogged those who didn’t believe this like Ahmad ibn Hanbal

To implement sharia little by little is bid’ah in regards to manhaj
-the Quran is revealed we are not waiting for more revelation
-when Umar suspended cutting the thieves’ hands because of famine he did maslahah
-it was in the public interest
-because there was famine in the land

'Abdur Rahman bin 'Abdul Qari said, "I went out in the company of 'Umar bin Al-Khattab one night in Ramadan to the mosque and found the people praying in different groups. A man praying alone or a man praying with a little group behind him. So, 'Umar said, 'In my opinion I would better collect these (people) under the leadership of one Qari (Reciter) (i.e. let them pray in congregation!)'. So, he made up his mind to congregate them behind Ubai bin Ka'b. Then on another night I went again in his company and the people were praying behind their reciter. On that, 'Umar remarked, What an excellent Bid'a (i.e. innovation in religion) this is; but the prayer which they do not perform, but sleep at its time is better than the one they are offering.' He meant the prayer in the last part of the night. (In those days) people used to pray in the early part of the night." [Sahih Bukhari (3/45) No. 2010]

-when Umar put taraweeh under one imam it was not bid’ah, it was maslahah

No jihad without a caliph is bid’ah in regards to fiqh and can become bid’ah in regards to aqeeda

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination. (An-Nisa 4:115)

-when a MADkhali says to dismantle the sharia is minor kufr
-this is bid’ah in regards to aqeeda
-and he goes against the ijmaa of the ummah

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

-when a Saudi salafi says that you are not a kafir until you make it halal with your tongue,
-that is bid’ah in regards to aqeeda

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullaah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Emaan 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." [Wujoob Tah'keem Sharee'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]

-even ibn Baz did not have this aqeeda
-the moment you dismantle the sharia you are a kafir

The belief that emaan is static is bid’ah in regards to aqeeda
-the belief that our actions are not part of our emaan is bid’ah in aqeeda

Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allāh (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)." (Aali Imran 3:173)

And whenever there comes down a Sûrah (chapter from the Qur'ān), 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)

The excuse given to a man who worships false deity is bid’ah in aqeeda
-praying to graves and tawaaf around them is bid’ah in ibaadah, and takes you outside Islam
-to do tawassul on the prophet is bid’ah in ibaadah
-celebrate prophets birthday is bid’ah in fiqh

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this." (Al-A'raf 7:172)

Narrated By 'Aisha and 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas: Allah's Apostle said: "May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets." The Prophet was warning (Muslims) of what those had done. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 8, Hadith #427]

Jabir (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) forbade that graves should be plastered and that anything should be inscribed thereon and that a structure should be raised on them and that they should be trodden on. [Muslim 970, Abu Dawud 3225, Tirmidhi 1054, Nisai 2023]

-a monument over saints’ graves is bid’ah in ibaadah

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]

-khatam death anniversary is bid’ah in fiqh


-dance in Soofi masjids is bid’ah in fiqh

Narrated By 'Aisha: I purchased a cushion with pictures on it. The Prophet (came and) stood at the door but did not enter. I said (to him), "I repent to Allah for what (the guilt) I have done." He said, "What is this cushion?" I said, "It is for you to sit on and recline on." He said, "The makers of these pictures will be punished on the Day of Resurrection and it will be said to them, 'Make alive what you have created.' Moreover, the angels do not enter a house where there are pictures.'" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 72, Hadith #840]

-pictures of shaikhs hung in houses are bid’ah in fiqh
-to pray on piece of Karbala’s earth is bid’ah in ibaadah

Aisha narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Those who give respect to a bid'ati (innovator in Religion) surely will be counted as a helper of destroying Islam." [al-Tabarani in 'al-Mu’jam al-Awsat' (7/35) No. 6772 and al-Bayhaqi in 'Shu'ab al-Emaan' (12/57) No. 9018]

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said: "It is not known that anyone used to wipe his face after making du’aa’ except al-Hasan." [Al-‘Ilal al-Mutanaahiyah, 2/840, 841]

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (rh) said: "With regard to the Prophet (SAW) raising his hands when saying du’aa’, there are many saheeh ahaadeeth concerning this, but as for his wiping his face with his hands, there are only one or two hadeeths concerning that, and they cannot be taken as evidence." [Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (22/519)]

al-‘Izz ibn ‘Abd al-Salaam said: "No one wipes his face with his hands after saying du’aa’ except one who is ignorant." [Fataawa al-‘Izz ibn ‘Abd al-Salaam, (p. 47)]

-to wipe face after dua is bid’ah in ibaadah
-to say ya Ali ya Hassan is bid’ah in regards to ibaadah and is shirk
-to make dua after every congregational prayer is bid’ah in ibaadah
-the prophet did not make dua after every salah

Some communities India and Pakistan think salah is bautil if dua not made after it
-they think the dua is part of the salah
-and shaking hands after salah is also bid’ah in ibaadah
-they will think shaking hands is part of the salah

Adding sentences to adhan is bid’ah in ibaadah
-the Shiites add to the adhan

Albani said if you insult Muhammad (saw) you are not a kaffir
-this is bid’ah in regards to aqeeda

Al-Albani: (We don’t think this accurate is in absolute sense, because it is possible that this insult (sabb) or reviling (satam) is the result of ignorance, bad upbringing, negligence, And lastly it could be with intent and knowledge, and in that case, it is a clear apostasy, of which there's no doubt. But if it carries either of the former situations which I pointed at. Then it's best Islamic to refrain from takfir than to rush towards it.)Source: Silsilat al-Huda wa al-Nur, tape nr. 820, min. 46:03).

Al-Imam Ishaq Ibn Rahawayh said: (All Muslims are in consensus that whoever curses Allah or curses His Messenger, or rejects something from what Allah revealed, or killed a prophet, that he is a kafir; and even if he accept what was revealed by Allah. And Al-Khattabi said, "I don't know of anyone who disagrees with the obligation of his killing."

And Muhammad Ibn Sahnun said that the scholars are in consensus that the one who curses the Messenger is a Kafir; and whoever doubts his Kufr is a Kafir.) Taken from (Kitab al-Sarim al-Maslul 'ala satim al-Rasul, by Ibn Taymiyya)

Using wind and music instruments in religious gatherings is bid’ah in fiqh
-calling people to sharia in darul harb is bid’ah in manhaj

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]

To say Muhammad (saw) was Noor and not Bashar is bid’ah in aqeeda
-to say Muhammad is alive with his faculties in his grave bid’ah in aqeeda

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilāh (God) is One Ilāh (God i.e. Allāh). 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)

Verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) will die and verily, they (too) will die. (Az-Zumar 39:30)

To say the throne of Allah means the glory of Allah is bid’ah in aqeeda

And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them. (Al-Haqqah 69:17)

Narrated Abu Said: The Prophet said, 'People will be struck unconscious on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first to regain consciousness, and behold! There I will see Moses holding one of the pillars of Allah's Throne. I will wonder whether he has become conscious before me of he has been exempted, because of his unconsciousness at the Tur (mountain) which he received (on the earth)." [Sahih Bukhari (4/153) No. 3398]

-to establish kingship in Islam is bid’ah in manhaj
-to say when a man commits zina or drinks alcohol he becomes a kaffir is bid’ah in aqeeda
-to say Allah created the heavens and the earth for Muhammad is bid’ah in aqeeda

FABRICATED HADITH: “When Adam sinned, Allah told him to seek forgiveness in the name of Muhammad, then Allah said to him: Had it not been for Muhammad I wouldn’t create the heavens and the earth. I Allah created the heavens and the earth for the sake of Muhammad."

-to recite Quran over dead bodies is bid’ah in fiqh
-praying to grave inhabitants and asking for things is bid’ah and makes you a kaffir

Ibn Taymiyyah said (when refuting the view of those who quoted ‘Umar’s words “What a good innovation this is” as meaning that innovation (bid’ah) is permissible): "With regard to qiyaam in Ramadan, the Messenger of Allah (SAW) introduced this to his ummah, and he led them in prayer for a number of nights, because at his time they used to pray in congregation and individually. But he did not persist in leading them in one congregation, lest that be made obligatory for them. When the Prophet (SAW) died, shariah was established (and would not change after that). When ‘Umar (RA) became caliph, he united them behind one imam, Ubayy ibn Ka’b, who united the people in one congregation on the orders of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (RA). ‘Umar (RA) was one of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, of whom the Prophet (SAW) said: “I urge you to adhere to my Sunnah and the way of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs after me; cling tightly to it.” So what he did was Sunnah but he said, “What a good innovation this is,” because it was an innovation in the linguistic sense, as they were doing something that they had not done during the life of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), i.e., gathering to do this, but it is Sunnah in the shar’i sense.” [Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (22/234-235)]

-there is no such thing as a good bid’ah
-prophet said every bid’ah is a going astray
-to build a minaret is called maslahah (public interest) it identifies the masjid
-when you establish a bid’ah the curse of the people who practise it falls on you
-when you establish a Sunnah you get the blessing of those who practise it

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: 'Whoever starts a good thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a reward like that of those who followed him, without it detracting in the least from their reward. Whoever starts a bad thing in Islam, and others do likewise after him, there will be written for him a burden of sin like that of those who followed him, without it detracting in the least from their burden.'" [Sahih Muslim (4/2059) No. 1017]

Imam Ahmad (bin Hanbal) said that "The principles of Islam are based on three hadith: the hadith of 'Umar that "deeds are judged only by intention," the hadith of 'A'isha, "Whoever introduces into our affairs that which does not belong, it is rejected," and the hadith of al-Nu'man b. Bashir, "The licit is clear and the illicit is clear." [Jama' ul-Uloom al-Hukum, Ibn Rajab (1/61)]


Assalamu alaikum sheikh, in regards to fasting three days of every month, are there specific days one should fast or can you fast any day of the month, and when one prays the witr prayer does he have to recite the dua before ruku’u or is it optional?


It was narrated that Abu Dharr (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said to me: “If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.” [Musnad Ahmad (5/162) No. 21474, Sunan Tirmidhi (3/134) No. 761, Sunan al-Nasa'i (4/222) No. 2424]

-two rakats/salaam/one rakat

Al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) taught me some words to say in qunoot al-witr:
اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِنِي فِيمَنْ هَدَيْتَ ، وَعَافِنِي فِيمَنْ عَافَيْتَ، وَتَوَلَّنِي فِيمَنْ تَوَلَّيْتَ، وَبَارِكْ لِي فِيمَا أَعْطَيْتَ، وَقِنِي شَرَّ مَا قَضَيْتَ، فإِنَّكَ تَقْضِي وَلا يُقْضَى عَلَيْكَ، وَإِنَّهُ لا يَذِلُّ مَنْ وَالَيْتَ، وَلا يَعِزُّ مَنْ عَادَيْتَ، تَبَارَكْتَ رَبَّنَا وَتَعَالَيْتَ
“Allahummahdini fiman hadait, wa a'fini fiman afait, wa tawallani fiman tawallait, wa barik Li fima atait, wa qini sharra ma qadait, fa Innaka taqdi wa la yuqda Alaik, wa innahu la yadhillu man walait wa la ya'izzu man Adait, tabarakta Rabbana wa ta'alait." (O Allah, guide me among those whom You have guided, pardon me among those whom You have pardoned, turn to me in friendship among those on whom You have turned in friendship, and bless me in what You have bestowed, and save me from the evil of what You have decreed. For verily You decree and none can influence You; and he is not humiliated whom You have befriended, nor is he honoured who is Your enemy. Blessed are You, O Lord, and Exalted).
[Sunan Abu Dawud (2/63) No. 1425, Sunan Tirmidhi (2/328) No. 464, Sunan al-Nasa'i (3/248) No. 1745]

Allah is witr and Allah loves witr
-recommended surahs for witr are surah ala/kaafiroon/ Ikhlas


There are some videogames that develop the virtual character, such as increasing physical strength, psychological well-being and skills of that character, by doing training within the game. Is this regarded as imitating the creation of Allah?

Assalamu alaikum Shaikh, I know so many people that they eat bull's makhasi (balls). Is it haram even though bull or cow is slaughter according to Shari’ah? JazakAllah khair shaikh

-everything in Shari’ah is halal until proven haram


Assalamu alaikum shaikh, a lot of us Muslims that live in the USA or in Europe have to follow the law of the country if we live in it, so re we out of Islam?

-only time you come out of Islam is when you renounce Islam in your heart
-if insurance is imposed upon you, you are not out of Islam
-you out of Islam when you spy for the kaffirs
-the money from insurance settlements you are allowed to keep


Assalamu alaikum, Could you please provide me an Islamic definition of covenant of security?

-the blind sahabah killed a woman for slandering the prophet

Ibn 'Abbas narrated that: 'A blind man had a freed concubine (umm walad) who used to insult the Prophet (SAW) and say bad things about him. He told her not to do that but she did not stop, and he rebuked her but she did not heed him. One night, when she started to say bad things about the Prophet (SAW) and insult him, he took a short sword or dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it and killed her. The following morning that was mentioned to the Messenger of Allaah (SAW). He called the people together and said, “I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right over him that he should stand up.” The blind man stood up and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I am the one who did it; she used to insult you and say bad things about you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not give up her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was kind to me. Last night she began to insult you and say bad things about you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her.” Thereupon the Prophet (SAW) said: “Bear witness, there is no blood money due for her.”' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/129) No. 4361, Sunan al-Nasa'i (7/107) No. 4070, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (7/96) No. 13375, Sunan al-Daraqutni (4/116) No. 3194, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/394) No. 8044, al-Haakim said: It is saheeh according to the conditions of Muslim although they [al-Bukhari and Muslim] did not narrate it. It was classed as saheeh by al-Dhahabi in his Talkhees, and by Ibn Hajar in Buloogh al-Maraam (pg. 369) No. 1215]

-the kaffirs broke the covenant of security when they made cartoons and movies to insult Muhammad (saw)
-they don’t believe in covenant
-if they did they would not insult Muhammad
-they call it freedom of speech
-yet they shut down things they don’t like
-Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda are black kaffirs who hate Muslims

Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty. (Al-Baqarah 2:118)

-white or black, there is no difference
-the white kaffir pays the black one
-when the white man was with apartheid he did not allow porn
-he did not allow gambling
-prostitution and gay marriage not allowed
-the black kaffir allowed it when they came to power
-at least the white kaffir had some morals
-if the black kuffar had the weapons of white they would kill every Muslim in the world
-they are fanatic about their religion
