HADITH 7:

عن أبي رقية تميم بن أوس الداري رضي الله تعالى عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم قال الدين النصيحة.قلنا: لمن؟ قال لله، ولكتابه، ولرسوله، ولأئمة المسلمين وعامتهم .رواه مسلم.

On the authority of Tameem ibn Aus ad-Daree (RA): The Prophet (SAW) said, "The deen (religion) is naseehah (advice, sincerity)." We said "To whom?" He (SAW) said "To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk." Related by Muslim.

This is a hadeeth of Tameem Ad-Daree

WHO IS HE?
-he is called the Palestinian sahabi because he was from Palestine
-he came to Madina in the 9th year of hijra
-this was the same year hajj was made compulsory
-he embraced Islam upon meeting the rasul (saw)
-he was a Christian monk
-the rasul (saw) loved him so much that he made him one of his advisors

He was travelling one day and ended up in an island
-where he met the dajjaal
-he told him that he'll break lose one day but can't enter Makkah

He was also loved by Umar (r.a)
-he was a scholar of Quran also and
-Umar chose him to be an imam during taraweeh salah

He left for Palestine during the khilafah of Uthman (r.a)
-he was also a story teller

This hadith is about sincerity
-the opposite of this is fake
-like you have in fake notes
-some Muslims are fake as well as hypocrites

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

There are many signs of hypocrisy
-but the most prominent are four

'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)]

Only with sincerity you can go to paradise
-you need to be sincere to Allah, the rasul (saw) and the Muslims

14 conditions have to be fulfilled in order to be sincere to Allah
-else you are a munafiq

1. TO BELIEVE THAT ALLAH EXIST WITHOUT HAVING DOUBT THAT HE EXIST

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

Those who doubt have a disease in their hearts
-it is haram for a Muslim woman to marry a man who has doubts in his heart
-about Allah and His rasul (saw)

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

2. TO BELIEVE THAT ALLAH IS THE ONLY CREATOR
-therefore Allah is Al-Khaliq
-this concept is called Tauheed Al-Rububiyya
-the Christians and the mu’tazilites went astray in this aspect of tauheed
-the Christians believe that Jesus helped Allah in creating man
-the mu’tazilites believe that man creates his action

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

The NOI (nation of Islam) also went astray in this regard
-they believe the white man is the devil who was created by a mad scientist called Jacob

MAD SCIENTIST YAKUB: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakub_(Nation_of_Islam)

To believe that there is a creator besides Allah is shirk

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." .. (Al-Baqarah 2:30)

-Louis Farrakhan went astray in this regards
-the greatest scientist can't even create a house-fly

O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allāh, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. (Al-Hajj 22:73)

All these people who believe that there are creators besides Allah
-are crazy and will abide in hellfire forever if they die in that state

3. TO BELIEVE IN HIS 99 NAMES AND ATTRIBUTES

Kenyan cleric 'with al-Shabab links' killed: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2012/08/201282713161688107.html

You need to believe in His 99 names without rejection
-you should not say Allah has a body but you should say His Person
-There is nothing like Him (see surah Ikhlas)

Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)): "He is Allāh, (the) One. (Al-Ikhlas 112:1)

Allāh-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks). (Al-Ikhlas 112:2)

"He begets not, nor was He begotten; (Al-Ikhlas 112:3)

"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." (Al-Ikhlas 112:4)

Narrated By Abu Said Al-Khudri: A man heard another man reciting (Surat-Al-Ikhlas) 'Say He is Allah, (the) One.' (112. 1) repeatedly. The next morning he came to Allah's Apostle and informed him about it as if he thought that it was not enough to recite. On that Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hand my life is, this Surah is equal to one-third of the Qur'an!" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 61, Hadith #533]

If you make Allah similar to His creation you become a kaafir

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

-when a baby is in the womb, it hears before it sees
-therefore you are not mujasima (believing He has a body)

You do not reject any of His 99 names and attributes
-Allah is a name and is called Al Ism Al Adham

Also you are not Mufawwida who refuse to take a stance
-always saying "Allah knows best"

Ibn Taymiyya debated them and they confirmed that Allah's 99 names are beautiful
-he asked them how they knew that if they didn't believe in them

You also don't believe in Takyeef (howness)
-a person asked this to Imam Malik and was kicked out of the study circle

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)]

To believe in His 99 names is called Tauheed Asma wa Sifaat

4. TO BELIEVE THAT HE IS THE ONLY LAW GIVER

Say: "Allāh knows best how long they stayed. With Him is (the knowledge of) the unseen of the heavens and the earth. How clearly He sees, and hears (everything)! They have no Walī (Helper, Disposer of affairs, Protector, etc.) other than Him, and He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." (Al-Kahf 18:26)

The Muslim is the only one who believes in the Tauheed
-the rest of the world went astray

Or even do they have associates (with Allah) who have legislated for them as the religion that which Allah has not given permission? And had it not been for the Word of Verdict, indeed it would have been decreed between them, and surely the unjust will have a painful torment. (Ash-Shura 42:21) [Dr Ghalli Translation]

[Say (O Muhammad SAW)] "Shall I seek a judge other than Allāh while it is He Who has sent down unto you the Book (The Qur'ān), explained in detail." Those unto whom We gave the Scripture [the Taurāt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] know that it is revealed from your Lord in truth. So be not you of those who doubt. (Al-An'am 6:114)

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

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."


5. TO BELIEVE THAT HE ALONE DESERVES TO BE WORSHIPPED (TAUHEED IBAADAT)

Verily, Allāh forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allāh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (An-Nisa 4:48)

The four tauheed are in surah Fatiha

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful (Al-Fatihah 1:1)

All the praises and thanks be to Allāh, the Lord of the 'Alamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Fatihah 1:2)

The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (Al-Fatihah 1:3)

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). (Al-Fatihah 1:4)

You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). (Al-Fatihah 1:5)

-prophet Yusuf (a.s) also taught the four tauheed to his inmates in the prison

"O two companions of the prison! Are many different lords (gods) better or Allah, the One, the Irresistible? (Yusuf 12:39)

"You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged), you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allah. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism), that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not. (Yusuf 12:40)

6. TO SPEND YOUR WEALTH FOR HIS SAKE

O you who believe! If you help (in the cause of) Allāh, He will help you, and make your foothold firm. (Muhammad 47:7)

By no means shall you attain Al-Birr (piety, righteousness, etc., it means here Allāh's Reward, i.e. Paradise), unless you spend (in Allāh's Cause) of that which you love; and whatever of good you spend, Allāh knows it well. (Aali Imran 3:92)

Helping Allah doesn't mean He is needy

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, would say on the Day of Resurrection: O son of Adam, I was sick but you did not visit Me. He would say: O my Lord; how could I visit Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds? Thereupon He would say: Didn't you know that such and such servant of Mine was sick but you did not visit him and were you not aware of this that if you had visited him, you would have found Me by him? O son of Adam, I asked food from you but you did not feed Me. He would say: My Lord, how could I feed Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds? He said: Didn't you know that such and such servant of Mine asked food from you but you did not feed him, and were you not aware that if you had fed him you would have found him by My side? (The Lord would again say) O son of Adam, I asked drink from you but you did not provide Me. He would say: My Lord, how could I provide Thee whereas Thou art the Lord of the worlds? Thereupon He would say: Such and such of servant of Mine asked you for a drink but you did not provide him, and had you provided him drink you would have found him near Me. [Sahih Muslim, Book 32, Hadith #6232]

-but you should spend on the deen
-you should spend on the mujahideen and the orphans
-don't be bakheel (tight fisted)

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

The munafiqeen can't spend fisabilillah (9:54)
-they hate to spend fisabilillah

7. TO LOVE AND HATE FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH (AL WALAA WAL BARAA)

You should do self- analysis, whether you have a friend who is an enemy of Islam or not
-you should not take munafiqs as friends

Allah's enemies are automatically your enemies (60:1)

O you who believe! Take not My enemies and your enemies (i.e. disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism, this Qur'an, and Muhammad SAW), and have driven out the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allah your Lord! If you have come forth to strive in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure, (then take not these disbelievers and polytheists, etc., as your friends). You show friendship to them in secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal. And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then indeed he has gone (far) astray, (away) from the Straight Path. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:1)

Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: "Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allah, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever, until you believe in Allah Alone," except the saying of Ibrahim (Abraham) to his father: "Verily, I will ask for forgiveness (from Allah) for you, but I have no power to do anything for you before Allah." Our Lord! In You (Alone) we put our trust, and to You (Alone) we turn in repentance, and to You (Alone) is (our) final Return, (Al-Mumtahinah 60:4)

You (O Muhammad SAW) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW ), even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred (people). For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with Ruh (proofs, light and true guidance) from Himself. And We will admit them to Gardens (Paradise) under which rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah is pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Verily, it is the Party of Allah that will be the successful. (Al-Mujadilah 58:22)


8. TO MAKE HAJJ TO THE HOUSE OF ALLAH ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME

In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one's conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah], then Allah stands not in need of any of the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns). (Aali Imran 3:97)

And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allāh, those who can afford the expenses (for one's conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allāh], then Allāh stands not in need of any of the 'Alamīn (mankind and jinns). (Aali Imran 3:97)

This is a debt we owe Allah

Ali (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “He who possess enough food for the trip, a means of transportation to reach to Makkah, and yet does not perform Hajj, then he dies, he would then die as a Jew or a Christian...” [Sunan Tirmidhi (3/176) No. 812, Bayhaqi in 'Shu'ab al-Iman' (5/443) No. 3692, Musnad al-Bazzaar (3/87-88) No. 861]

-the one who dies without making hajj or makes no intention to do so
-dies the death of a Jew or Christian

9. TO DO DAWAH AND ENJOIN THE RIGHT AND FORBID THE WRONG

Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islām), enjoining Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islāmic Monotheism and all that Islām orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islām has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful. (Aali Imran 3:104)

On the authority of Abu Umar who said: Allah sent two angels to destroy a township with a natural disaster, but when they got there they found a man praying in the mosque. They went back to Allah and said: 'O Allah we found a man praying in the mosque.' Allah said to the two angels: 'Go back and destroy the township with that man as well because not once did he ever frown when he saw the people indulging in haram.' [Ibnul Qayyim, al-Jawaab al-Kaafi (Vol. 1, pg. 46)]

The only time you are supposed to give da’wah is if the person shows interest
-else you are wasting your time
-and throwing pearls to the swine

Therefore remind (men) in case the reminder profits (them). (Al-A'la 87:9)

Invite (mankind, O Muhammad SAW) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islām) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur'ān) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided. (An-Nahl 16:125)


10. TO SURRENDER TO ALLAH

O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islām (by obeying all the rules and regulations of the Islāmic religion) and follow not the footsteps of Shaitān (Satan). Verily! He is to you a plain enemy (Al-Baqarah 2:208)

-you abandon your desires and follow His commandments

It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allāh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allāh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. (Al-Ahzab 33:36)

-you are not allowed to be self- opinionated
-you can't have one foot in Islam and one foot in kufr


11. TO HAVE SABR WHENEVER A CALAMITY BEFALLS YOU

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sābirin (the patient ones, etc.). (Al-Baqarah 2:155)

Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allāh we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." (Al-Baqarah 2:156)

Loss of life means your loved ones will die
-but the true believers will have sabr

And among mankind is he who worships Allāh 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 Islām). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss. (Al-Hajj 22:11)

Some people worship Allah on the edge
-the munafiq has no sabr

Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe," and will not be tested. (Al-'Ankabut 29:2)

And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allāh will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allāh knows all that before putting them to test). (Al-'Ankabut 29:3)

Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, "When (will come) the Help of Allāh?" Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allāh is near! (Al-Baqarah 2:214)

So verily, with the hardship, there is relief, (Ash-Sharh 94:5)

Verily, with the hardship, there is relief (i.e. there is one hardship with two reliefs, so one hardship cannot overcome two reliefs). (Ash-Sharh 94:6)


12. TO MAKE HIJRAH FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH
-don't stay in darul harb and be humiliated
-it is better to live in a Muslim country (biladul Muslimeen)

See what they are doing to Babar Ahmad, Abu Hamza etc.
-these kuffaar are human devils
-the arm pit of humanity
-there is no honour in living in the west

On the authority of Jarir bin 'Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) sent a military expedition to Khath'am. So some people (living there) sought safety by prostrating, but they were met quickly and killed. News of this reached the Prophet (SAW) upon which he commanded that they be given half of the 'Aql (blood money). And he said: "I am free from every Muslim that lives among the idolaters." They said: "O Messenger of Allah: How is that?" He said: "They should not see each other's campfires." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/155) No. 1604 and Sunan Abu Dawud (3/45) No. 2645]

It was narrated from Samurah that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Do not live among the mushrikeen and do not mix with them, for whoever lives among them or mixes with them is not one of us.” [al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (9/240) No. 18420 and Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/154) No. 2627. adh-Dhahabi graded this on the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim]

The programme was also at the centre of a controversy when American cleric and conservative pundit Jerry Falwell claimed in 1999 that Tinky Winky, one of the Teletubbies, was a homosexual role model for children. Falwell based this conclusion on the character's purple colour and triangular antenna; both the colour purple and the triangle are sometimes used as symbols of the Gay Pride movement: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teletubbies

Verily! As for those whom the angels take (in death) while they are wronging themselves (as they stayed among the disbelievers even though emigration was obligatory for them), they (angels) say (to them): "In what (condition) were you?" They reply: "We were weak and oppressed on earth." They (angels) say: "Was not the earth of Allāh spacious enough for you to emigrate therein?" Such men will find their abode in Hell - What an evil destination! (An-Nisa 4:97)


13. YOU NEED TO REJECT THE TAGHOOT

Taghoot means false deities or an icon for a false religion

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allāh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tāghût (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitān (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitān (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)

-it also means the kaafir army

-it also means the kaafir constitution
-believing in Allah alone makes you no special
-Abu Jahl believed in Allah
-what makes you special is rejecting the taghoot and believing in Allah

Whoever disbelieves in Tāghût and believes in Allāh, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allāh is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:256)

-believing in Allah alone is half of the shahada
-it is not enough!
-false prophets are also taghoot

A Berailvis from Birmingham died not fisabilillah but fisabili- Queen Elizabeth

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allāh, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tāghût (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitān (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitān (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)

First British Muslim soldier killed in 'War on Terror' : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-393878/First-British-Muslim-soldier-killed-war-terror.html

14. TO DO JIHAD FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith 4696]

Jihād (holy fighting in Allāh's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allāh knows but you do not know. (Al-Baqarah 2:216)

You need to wage jihad because even if you don't want to
-the kuffaar will bring it to your doorstep

Fight against them so that Allāh will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people, (At-Tawbah 9:14)







QUESTION_1:-

Assalamu alaikum shaikh, Can you also find the four branches of tawheed in ayatul kursi?


ANSWER 1:-
-the 4 branches of tawheed are found in surah Kahf
-with careful searching it can be found in ayatul kursi also
-it is also found in surah Yusuf

Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter . And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. [This Verse 2:255 is called Ayat-ul-Kursi.] (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

-Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission?
-this is tawheed haakimiyya
-the four tawheed are found in surah fatiha also



QUESTION_2:-

If the wife accuse domestic violence against her husband and lie to Shari’ah court, can she be granted the divorce even if she can't prove it?


ANSWER 2:-
-if the person doesn’t want to be with you set her free
-why do you want to live with a liar?
-a Muslim cannot lie:

On the authority of Safwan ibn Sulaym who said: "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) was asked, 'Can the mumin be a coward?' He said, 'Yes.' He was asked, 'Can the mumin be a miser?' He said, 'Yes.' He was asked, 'Can the mumin be a liar?' He said, 'No.'" [Muwatta Malik (2/169) No. 2088, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (6/456) No. 4472, Makarim al-Akhlaq Ibn Abi al-Dunya (pg. 54) No. 147, Mishkat al-Masabih (3/1364) No. 4862]

Umm Salamah (RA) reported: Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "I am only a human being, and you people have disputes. May be someone amongst you can present his case in a more eloquent and convincing manner than the other, and I give my judgment in his favor according to what I hear. Beware! If ever I give (by error) somebody something of his brother's right then he should not take it as I have only, given him a piece of Fire." [al-Bukhari (6967) and Muslim (1713)]

-she has to do li’an: swear four times
-the man has to deny it four times
-each invoking the curse of Allah on them if they lie on the 5th time

Thawban (RA) reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, ‘The woman who seeks divorce from her husband for no reason will not even smell the fragrance of Paradise.” [Sunan Abu Dawud (2/268) No. 2226, Sunan Tirmidhi (3/485) No. 1187, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/207) No. 2055, Sunan al-Darime (2/216) No. 2270, Musnad Ahmad (5/283) No. 22493]



QUESTION_3:-

What is the ruling on fighting for the taghoot like Arab regimes that are waging war against the Syrian regime? The Muslims that are fighting have a good intention but don't understand that it is a proxy war. Explain please


ANSWER 4:-
-Assad is a kaffir so it is compulsory to topple him
-he is killing innocent people
-take arms from anyone: US, Jews
-necessity knows no law
-so take anything from kuffar to topple him
-he is extreme Shia
-and have no qualms about this



QUESTION_5:-

Assalamu alaikum sheikh, can you explain to me is it correct to call to the Shari’ah in UK/USA etc. which i consider darul harb before calling to tawheed? I don't know if this is correct and many people argue about this. Also is it waajib to learn Arabic or recommended? Barakah Allah feek


ANSWER 5:-
-according to Imams Shafi’i and ibn Taymiyya, learning Arabic is waajib

قال الشافعي - رحمه الله - في الرسالة : فعلى كل مسلم أن يتعلم من لسان العرب ما بلغه جهده، حتى يشهد به أن لا إله إلا الله، وأن محمدا عبده ورسوله، ويتلو به كتاب الله، وينطق بالذكر فيما افترض عليه من التكبير، وأمر به من التسبيح، والتشهد، وغير ذلك
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)]

-non Arabic speaking Muslims always have dodgy aqeeda

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)]

-to call for sharia in darul harb is bid’ah
-the people don’t know who Allah is so you can’t call them to Shari’ah
-the Sunnah is to call to tawheed first

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 Tauheed 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]

-kaffirs believe Jesus is God
-some don’t believe in God at all; how can you call them to sharia?
-in mecca they were called to Allah
-in medina they were called to sharia
-the people are jaahil, they believe God came from the belly of a woman
-when they believe in Allah then invite them to sharia
