HADITH NUMBER 7:

الحديث السابع
«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.

You need to memorise these conditions like surah Fatiha
-when your relationship with Allah is good
-then your relationship with the Muslims will be good
-but if your relationship with Allah is bad then
-your relationship with everyone else will be bad


11. DO NOT PROPOSE ON TOP OF HIS PROPOSAL

'Uqba b. 'Amir said on the pulpit that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said A believer is the brother of a believer, so it is not lawful for a believer to outbid his brother, and he should not propose an engagement when his brother has thus proposed until he gives it up. [Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3294]

You are not supposed to propose when she is thinking about it
-but if the brother abandons the engagement then you can propose
-but some are so weak in emaan that even if she says 'am engaged' they still propose

This is just for believers and not munafiqs
-if a goofi soofi, Saudi salafi, Berailvis propose then you can propose on top of it
-these people are fake Muslims
-brother in the hadith means a real brother not fake ones

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

This hadeeth proves that a pious person should be approached
-for advice in the issue of marriage
-marriage is not a joke
-because we live with our spouses for the rest of our lives

The other lesson is that there is no backbiting with regards to marriage
-but you need to wait until you are approached
-you should not go ahead to give your opinion

It is possible for a sister to receive more than one proposal
-this will make her confuse and hence needs advice from a pious person

This hadith proves to us that the rasul (saw) knew the character of his sahabah
-he was a proper leader and knew fiqhul waaqi

The rasul (saw) did not uphold tribalism
-and he was a good matchmaker because the marriage worked


LESSONS FROM THIS HADEETH

i. THE SAHABAH APPROACHED THE RASUL (saw) FOR SINCERE NASEEHA ON CRUCIAL MATTERS

ii. SISTERS SHOULD SEEK ADVICE FROM THE PIOUS AND WISE BEFORE THEY ACCEPT A PROPOSAL

iii. THE RASUL (saw) KNEW THE CHARACTER OF HIS COMPANIONS

iv. A WISE LEADER KNOWS ABOUT HIS FLOCK

v. THE SAHABAH WERE HUMAN AND HAD WEAKNESSES
-to be a wife-beater is a serious weakness

vi. THE RASUL (saw) DID NOT PRACTICE TRIBALISM
-if he did, he would have told Fatimah to only marry a Qurashi

vii. THE RASUL (saw) WAS A GOOD MATCHMAKER
-Fatimah bint Qays had a successful marriage with Usaama (she was older than him)
-Allah gives hikma to whom He (SWT) pleases
-see 2:269

He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding. (Al-Baqarah 2:269) He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding. (Al-Baqarah 2:269)

viii. BACKBITING IS PERMISSIBLE IN REGARDS TO MARRIAGE
-but you cannot give your opinion unless you are approached for it
-the Rasool (saw) was approached for his opinion regarding Abu Jahm and Mu’awiya
-do not be a busy-body and assassinate characters
-wait until YOUR OPINION IS ASKED
-if the brother is a drug addict, you must be honest and tell the sister
-so this is the only time when there is no backbiting;
-she must be told negative traits


12. WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HARM THEM WITH OUR HANDS OR OUR TONGUE

On the authority of 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said "A Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hands the Muslims are safe; and a Muhajir (Emigrant) is the one who refrains from what Allah has forbidden." [al-Bukhari (10) and Muslim (40)]


13. YOU NEED TO GIVE THEM THEIR 6 RIGHTS

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (RA) as saying Six are the rights of a Muslim over another Muslim. It was said to him Allah's Messenger, what are these? Thereupon he said When you meet him, offer him greetings; when he invites you to a feast accept it, when he seeks your council give him, and when he sneezes and says "All praise is due to Allah," you say Yarhamuk Allah (may Allah show mercy to you); and when he falls ill visit him; and when he dies follow his bier. [Sahih Muslim (4/1705) No. 2162, Musnad Ahmad (2/372) No. 8832, al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 925]

Narrated by Abu Huraira The worst food is that of a wedding banquet to which only the rich are invited while the poor are not invited. And he who refuses an invitation (to a banquet) disobeys Allah and His Apostle. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, Hadith #106]

The Prophet said “When one of you sneezes, let him say, ‘Alhamdulillaah,’ his brother or companion should say to him, ‘Yarhamuk-Allahu,’ and the one who sneezed should say, ‘Yahdeekumullaah wa yuslihu baalakum.’ ” (Bukhari 5870)

It is haram to go to the janazah of a munafiq

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

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)

-only munafiqs go to the janazah of munafiqs
-how can you go the janazah of a fallen kaafir soldier?
-how can you go to every single janazah?
-Umar (r.a) didn't do this but looks at whose janazah Hudhaifa (r.a) attended
-because he knew the hypocrites

The only time you should refuse a wedding invitation is when there is munkar
-if you know there would be music and free mixing of the sexes
-then you should abstain from attending

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported that the Prophet (SAW) said, ‘Whoever recites surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty’ [Ibn as-Sunni 620, Bayhaqi]


14. IT IS HARAM TO OPPRESS YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS

There are things that are haram for Allah to do
-there are things that are haram for us to do
-it is haram for Allah to oppress

...“Oh, my servants! I have made oppression haraam (forbidden) upon Myself, and also between you. So do not oppress each other...." [Sahih Muslim, Hadith #6246]

-and it is also haram for HIM to have a son because HE doesn't have a wife

He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything. (Al-An'am 6:101)

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

-it haram for HIM to break HIS promises

"Our Lord! Grant us what You promised unto us through Your Messengers and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection, for You never break (Your) Promise." (Aali Imran 3:194)

Some Muslim fathers oppress their daughters by keeping them at home
-this is because she is the bread winner
-these men are called rouge wali
-in this case she has to appoint another wali
-and get married behind his back

There are many types of oppressions that Muslims unleash against each other


15. DO NOT MAKE INDECENT PROPOSALS TO THEIR WOMEN FOLKS

If you propose for marriage then this is praiseworthy
-otherwise it is blameworthy

Stay chaste and your women will be chaste, and save yourself from that which is unfit for a Muslim. Verily, adultery is a debt, if you have taken this debt, know that its payment will be taken from the people of your household. One who commits adultery, in return adultery will be commited with him, even though it will be commited against the wall of your house. O man! If you are wise then you should know it (Diwan Ash-Shafi'i)

Narrated by Anas ibn Malik (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said “No one of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.” [al-Bukhari (13) and Muslim (45)]

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

Ibn Mas`ud said, "I asked, `O Messenger of Allah! What is the greatest sin?' He said, "To make a rival for Allah while He Alone created you." I said, `Then.' He said, "To kill your offspring for fear that he might share your food with you." I said, `Then.' He said, "To commit adultery with your neighbor's wife.'' [al-Bukhari (4477) and Muslim (86)]

-do not be carried away by the physical appearance of people
-Berailvis have beard and Qaadiyanis wear hijab


16. YOU SHOULD NOT LET THEIR SECRETS OUT

There are three types of people: a friend, an enemy and a frenemy
-a frenemy is your worst enemy but pretends to be your friend
-a real Muslim takes secrets to his/her grave

Those who are faithfully true to their Amanat (all the duties which Allah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.)[] and to their covenants; (Al-Mu'minun 23:8)

Abu Huraira (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said "A believer is not bitten from the same hole twice.” [Related by al-Bukhari (6133) and Muslim (2998)]


17. DO NOT TAKE SIDES WITH KUFAAR AGAINST THEM

This is called al walaa wal baraa (solidarity)

O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong¬doers and unjust). (Al-Ma'idah 5:51)

The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); they perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give the Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:71)

Narrated By Abu Musa The Prophet said, "A faithful believer to a faithful believer is like the bricks of a wall, enforcing each other." While (saying that) the Prophet clasped his hands, by interlacing his fingers. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 8, Hadith #468]


18. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SPY ON THEM

99% of women read their husband's text messages and emails (if they have the password)
-women are the best spies (natural born spies)
-this is dangerous because you might uncover some unpleasant information
-some men always spy on their wives
-some pay secret investigators to spy on their wives/husbands
-they use this for divorce and claim half the property

O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful. (Al-Hujurat 49:12)

Shaikh has no evidence to say whether it is halal to spy on your spouse

Spying for the kuffaar against the Muslims make you a kaafir
-this violates Al walaa wal baraa which is a condition of shahada

Narrated By 'Ubaidullah bin Abi Rafi I heard 'Ali saying, "...Allah's Apostle, said, "Hatib has told you the truth." Umar said, O Allah's Apostle! Allow me to chop off the head of this hypocrite." Allah's Apostle said, "Hatib participated in the battle of Badr, and who knows, perhaps Allah has already looked at the Badr warriors and said, 'Do whatever you like, for I have forgiven you." [al-Bukhari (3007) and Muslim (2494)]

-the hypocrites use the hadeeth of Haatib Ibn Abi Balta'a
-to justify working for the kuffaar against the Muslims
-claiming that they are only feeding their family

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab, may Allah have mercy on him, gathered ten actions that negate one's Islam (Nawaqid ul-'Ashr), the eighth one of which states "Assisting the disbelievers (against the believers) (Mudhaharatul Mushrikeen) and supporting them against the believers (is from the actions that negates of one's faith). The Proof being the statement of Allah, "And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). (The Quran 5:51)."

-munafiqs always put spins on hadeeth and verses of the Quran


19. YOU SHOULD NOT BOYCOTT THEM FOR MORE THAN THREE DAYS

Narrated By Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari Allah's Apostle said, "It is not lawful for a man to desert his brother Muslim for more than three nights. (It is unlawful for them that) when they meet, one of them turns his face away from the other, and the other turns his face from the former, and the better of the two will be the one who greets the other first." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, Hadith #100]

Narrated By Abu Khirash as-Sulami Abu Khirash heard the Apostle of Allah (SAW) say "If one keeps apart from his brother for a year, it is like shedding his blood." [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/279) No. 4915, Musnad Ahmad (4/220) No. 17964, al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 404, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/180) No. 7292, Shu'ab al-Iman al-Bayhaqi (9/26) No. 6207, al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (22/308) No. 780]


SHAIKH FAWZAAN CLAIMS THE GREATEST JIHAD IS TO KILL MUJAHIDEEN http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wwJPZTDJw8

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

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said "The gates of Paradise will be opened on Mondays and on Thursdays, and every servant [of Allah] who associates nothing with Allah will be forgiven, except for the man who has a grudge against his brother. [About them] it will be said 'Delay these two until they are reconciled; delay these two until they are reconciled.'" [Sahih Muslim (4/1987) No. 2565, Muwatta Malik (2/80) No. 1897, Sunan Dawud (4/279) No. 4916]


20. TO SUPPORT THEM FINANCIALLY AND PHYSICALLY AND TO CHEER FOR THEM WHEN THEY ARE ON THE BATTLEFIELD

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


21. TO LOOK AFTER THEIR WIDOWS AND ORPHANS WHEN THEY DIE ON THE BATTLEFIELD

But he has made no effort to pass on the path that is steep. (Al-Balad 90:11)

And what will make you know the path that is steep? (Al-Balad 90:12)

(It is) Freeing a neck (slave, etc.). (Al-Balad 90:13)

Or giving food in a day of hunger (famine), (Al-Balad 90:14)

To an orphan near of kin. (Al-Balad 90:15)

Or to a Miskin (poor) afflicted with misery. (Al-Balad 90:16)


22. DEFEND THEIR HONOUR BEHIND THEIR BACK

Your honour is among the six sacred things in Islam
-this is why we give 80 lashes to the slanderer

Narrated By Uqbah ibn Amir The Prophet (SAW) said "He who sees something which should be kept hidden and conceals it will be like one who has brought to life a girl buried alive." [Abu Dawood (4/273, No. 4891), al-Hakim (4/426, No. 8162), al-Bayhaqi (8/331, No. 17387), Sunan Kubra Nasa'i (4/307, No. 7281), At-Tabarani (17/319, No. 883)]

Asma' Bint Yazid narrated the Prophet (SAW) said "Whoever defends the honour of his brother in absence has the right over Allah to be freed from the Fire." [Musnad Ahmad (6/461) No. 27650, al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (24/176) No. 443, Musnad Abu Dawud at-Tayalisi (3/201) No. 1737]

O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy, or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honourable manner. (Al-Ahzab 3332)

THE 6 SACRED THINGS

1. LIFE
2. WEALTH
3. IZZAH (HONOUR)
4. AQL (INTELLECT)
5. LINEAGE
6. DEEN (RELIGION; AL ISLAM)






QUESTION 1:-

Assalamu alaikum, how can Muslims maintain sincerity when kaffirs and their currency are their source of income in the west?

Answer 1:-
This question is important because some shaikhs pass fatwas
-that the Muslims in the West are helping the kuffaar
-whenever you smile to a kaafir it takes away your al walaa wal baraa
-the Tabi’ee never wanted to see kuffaar except in the battlefield
-all people banned from the room are from the west
-many people living in darul harb apostate

The solution to this is hijra


QUESTION 2:-

Assalamu alaikum sheikh faisal, I feel sick most of time and pain due to what is happening in Syria, muslims are killed everywhere in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kashmir. Is it normal to have this feeling?

Answer 2:-
It is normal to have these feeling
-because of the hadeeth that says we are like one body
-this means you pay attention to fiqh ul waaqi

It was narrated from Abd-Allaah ibn Masood (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said "Whoever starts his day caring about something other than Allaah has nothing to do with Allaah, and whoever does not care about the Muslims is not one of them." [Narrated by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (4/356)]

Narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir The Prophet (SAW) said “The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and compassion is that of one body; when one part of it suffers, the rest of the body joins it in staying awake and suffering fever.” [al-Bukhaari (6011) and Muslim (2586)]



QUESTION 3:-

Assalamu alaikum, can a wife take contraceptives if the husband doesn’t spend enough time with the kids and the wife but he still has a job and takes care of the necessities of the family?

Answer 3:-
This is another problem in the west
-people work to pay bills
-90% of your earnings go back to the system
-contraceptives are allowed in Islam on temporary basis


QUESTION 4:-

Assalamu alaikum sheikh, there are 2 brothers I know that were banned from a masjid in south London because of claims that they beat up a brother on the allegation that he was gay and he is known to oppress sisters. The problem is there was not a single witness to see this and it was a great slander against the brother by the local imam and some people in the community. What happened was one brother claimed the particular brother attacked him and some other brothers claim this brother attacked him, the same brother that was allegedly beaten up physically oppressed a brother and it was outside the mosque on a Friday for everyone to see. But this brother was not banned from the mosque. Also the imam did not bring any evidence from the Quran or Sunnah to legitimately ban someone from the masjid. So the brothers later when to the masjid to pray Salatul fajr and about 20-30 brothers refused to let the brother in on the orders of the imam. Even some where ready to attack them. My question is, is this from the Sunnah? and how should the brothers go about dealing with this situation adding to the fact that their honour was violated and I must add that what makes it worse it that the imam publicly warned about these two particular brothers and posted video on YouTube world web but later removed it, then they put posters with pictures in the masjid entrance but since i have been there they have been removed.



Answer 4:-
This scenario is very complicated and can't be sorted out in paltalk
-this pasa pasa (fitna) needs to be addressed by a local shaikh
-you can't just go around accusing people of being gay

O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done. (Al-Hujurat 49:6)

-all parties need to be present to resolve this

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (RA), who narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “It is enough sin for a person to speak everything that he hears.” [Sunan Abu Dawood (4/298) No. 4992, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/195) No. 381, Sahih Ibn Hibban (1/213) No. 30, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (10/403) No. 11845]

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said "It is enough to call a man a liar that he narrates everything he hears" [Sahih Muslim (1/10) No. 5, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (5/237) No. 25617, al-Zuhd al-Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (p. 41) No. 249]



QUESTION 5:-

If a mother gives the child her family surname is this a sin?

Answer 5:-
Sisters do that a lot in darul harb because they want to claim benefits
-this is haram to do (33:5)

Call them (adopted sons) by (the names of) their fathers, that is more just with Allah. But if you know not their father's (names, call them) your brothers in faith and Mawalikum (your freed slaves). And there is no sin on you if you make a mistake therein, except in regard to what your hearts deliberately intend. And Allah is Ever Oft¬Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ahzab 33:5)

Ibn Umar (RA) said, “We used to call Zayd ibn Harithah, Zayd ibn Muhammad till the Qur’an was revealed "Call them by (the names of) their fathers that is more equitable in the sight of Allah." (33:5) [al-Bukhari (4782) and Muslim (2425)]

It was narrated from Abu Dharr (RA) that he heard the Prophet (SAW) say “There is no man who knowingly calls himself after someone other than his father but he has committed kufr. Whoever claims to belong to people to whom he has no ties of blood, let him take his place in Hell.” [al-Bukhari (3308) Muslim (61)]
