HADEETH NUMBER 28:

الحديث الثامن والعشرون
«عن أبي نجيح العرباض بن سارية رضي الله تعالى عنه قال: وعظنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم موعظة وجلت منها القلوب وذرفت منها العيون، فقلنا: يا رسول الله كأنها موعظة مودع فأوصنا، قال أوصيكم بتقوى الله عز وجل والسمع والطاعة وإن تأمر عليكم عبد، فإنه من يعش منكم فسيري اختلافا كثيرا، فعليكم بسنتي وسنة الخلفاء الراشدين المهديين عضوا عليها بالنواجذ، وإياكم ومحدثات الأمور فإن كل بدعة ضلالة» .
رواه أبو داود والترمذي وقال: حديث حسن صحيح.

On the authority of Abu Najeeh al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, "O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us." He (SAW) said, "I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allah, and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer. Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the Khulafa ar-Rashideen (the rightly guided caliphs), those who guide to the right way. Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bidah (innovation) is misguidance." It was related by Abu Dawud and at-Tirmidhi, who said that it was a good and sound hadith.


WHAT IS WA'DH?

-it is when you warn someone
-a sermon given to give a stern warning to someone

Da'wah is to preach to a non-muslim
-but wa'dh is given to invite Muslims to Qur'an and Sunnah
-like what the prophet (saw) gave in this sermon

The sermons of the prophet (saw) were short
-and he disliked long khutbas

'Ammar bin Yasir (RA) reported: I heard Messenger of Allah (SAW) saying, "Prolonging Salat (prayer) and shortening the Khutbah (religious talk) indicate the religious knowledge of the person. Make your Salat long and your sermon short." [Sahih Muslim (2/594) No. 869]

-but some people give long khutbas
-this is not the Sunnah

The human intellect cannot absorb knowledge for more than 40 minutes
-this is how long the mind can concentrate fully
-long khutbas become boring and make
-the people go for jumuah few minutes before the khutba ends
-so they are going for the salah not the khutba

…The Messenger of Allah (SAW) gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, "O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us…

When this happened, the sahabah asked for a counsel
-let us look at the heart

It is the most important organ of the body
-and because of that there are many Qur'anic verses and hadeeth on the heart

The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail, (Ash-Shu'ara 26:88)

Except him who brings to Allāh a clean heart [clean from Shirk (polytheism) and Nifāq (hypocrisy)]. (Ash-Shu'ara 26:89)

And surely, We have created many of the jinns and mankind for Hell. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those! They are the heedless ones. (Al-A'raf 7:179)

On the authority of Abu Huraira the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "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 (4/1986) No. 2564]

...There is a lump of flesh in the body, the nature of which is that when it is sound, the entire body is sound, and when it is corrupt, the entire body is corrupt - it is the heart.'" [al-Bukhari (52) and Muslim (1599)]

Narrated By Anas: The Prophet said, "Whoever said "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of a barley grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said: "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of a wheat grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of an atom will be taken out of Hell." [al-Bukhari (44) and Muslim (193)]

The heart of the prophet (saw) was washed with Zam Zam
-so it was not like our hearts

Have We not opened your breast for you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him))? (Ash-Sharh 94:1)

And removed from you your burden, (Ash-Sharh 94:2)

Which weighed down your back? (Ash-Sharh 94:3)

And raised high your fame? (Ash-Sharh 94:4)

'A'isha said, "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) did not do more than eleven rak'ats (at night) during Ramadan or at any other time. He would pray four rak'ats - do not ask about their beauty or length - and then he would pray four more - and do not ask about their beauty or length - and then he would pray three. I said, 'Messenger of Allah, do you sleep before the witr?' He said, ''A'isha, my eyes sleep but my heart does not sleep.'" [al-Bukhari (3569) and Muslim (738)]

There are people whose eyes are wide open, yet they walk straight to a calamity
-some of them marry kuffaar
-this is because the real blind man is the one blind in his heart
-Allah said:

Nor can you lead the blind out of their error, you can only make to hear those who believe in Our Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), and who have submitted (themselves to Allāh in Islām as Muslims). (An-Naml 27:81)

Allah spoke about these people who are blind in the heart
-some of you get conned out of your life savings
-even though your eyes are open

They are deaf, dumb, and blind, so they return not (to the Right Path). (Al-Baqarah 2:18)

But Allah praised the believers and their hearts

The believers are only those who, when Allāh is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur'ān) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); (Al-Anfal 8:2)

-so the real blind man is the one blind in his heart
-and because of this some have their eyes wide open but still walk into a catastrophe
-and marry ex muslims.com etc.

When your heart is pure, everything about you is pure
-one day the prophet (saw) was giving da’wah to the notables of Quraish
-and they were listening attentively to him
-then a blind man came and interrupted the da'wah
-this made the prophet (saw) to frown and turn away

(The Prophet (Peace be upon him)) frowned and turned away, ('Abasa 80:1)

Because there came to him the blind man (i.e. 'Abdullāh bin Umm-Maktûm, who came to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) while he was preaching to one or some of the Quraish chiefs). ('Abasa 80:2)

-this blind man took his shahada later on because he was not blind in his heart
-this was why he was able to see the beauty of Islam

This blind man attended jihad on many occasions
-and he used to carry the flag for the Muslims
-when Umar declared jihad against the Persians, he was one of the first to turn in
-he was asked to stay home but refused and he died a shaheed in that battle

The prophet would get up from his seat and give him to sit
-and would say he was corrected because of him

The prophet (saw) when giving khutbas, his eyes would go red and his voice loud
-and the sahabah would cry profusely
-because the prophet (saw) used to speak from his heart

The sahabah said in this hadith that their eyes were filled with tears

…gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes…

Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that he heard Allah’s Messenger (SAW) say, ‘(There are) two eyes that the Fire will never touch, the eye that wept from fear of Allah and the eye that stood guard in the night in Allah’s path.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/175) No. 1639 and Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (3/227) No. 1639]

-when was the last time you heard a Quranic recitation and you cried?
-or listened to a khutba and cried
-or heard the story of the sahabah and cried

Some of you live in a concrete jungle
-with music all over, discos, prostitutes etc.
-it is very difficult for such to have soft hearts
-this is why the prophet (saw) said:

Abu Huraira narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: “There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah's sake, meeting for that and parting upon that a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: 'I fear Allah', a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.' [al-Bukhari (660) and Muslim (1031)]

The rasool (saw) cried
-when a child was brought to him who was dying
-and he said this was because of mercy from Allah

Abu Zayd Usama ibn Zayd ibn Haritha, the client of the Messenger of Allah, one he loved and the son of one he loved, said, "A daughter of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, sent a message to him saying, 'One of my sons is dying, so come.' He sent his greetings to her and said, 'What Allah takes is His and what He gives is His. Everything has a fixed term with Him, so she should show fortitude and expect a reward.' She sent to him imploring him to come to her. He got up with Sa'd ibn 'Ubada, Mu'adh ibn Jabal, Ubayy ibn Ka'b, Zayd ibn Thabit and some other men, may Allah be pleased with them. The child was brought to the Messenger of Allah and he was shuddering. The Prophet's eyes were flowing with tears and Sa'd said, 'Messenger of Allah, what is this?' He said, 'This is an aspect of mercy which Allah has put in the hearts of His slaves.'" [al-Bukhari (1284) and Muslim (923)]

'A'isha reported that Quraysh were concerned with the case of a Makhzumi woman who had stolen something and they said, "Who will speak to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, about her?" They said, "Who is bold enough to do it except Usama ibn Zayd, the beloved of the Messenger of Allah?" Usama spoke to him and the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "How can you intercede when it is a case of one of the legal punishments of Allah Almighty?" Then he stood up and spoke and said, "Those before you were destroyed because when a noble among them stole, they let him be, but when the weak among them stole, they carried out the legal punishment on them. By Allah, if Fatima the daughter of Muhammad were to steal, I would cut off her hand." [al-Bukhari (3475) and Muslim (1688)]

...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."... [al-Bukhari (4750) and Muslim (2770)]

-so the prophet cried when his grandson was about to die
-and when was the last time you cried?
-you live in a satanic society
-Allah said:

Then, after that, your hearts were hardened and became as stones or even worse in hardness. And indeed, there are stones out of which rivers gush forth, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which split asunder so that water flows from them, and indeed, there are of them (stones) which fall down for fear of Allāh. And Allāh is not unaware of what you do. (Al-Baqarah 2:74)

The sahabah's hearts were not hard
-and this hadith tells us that to cry as a man does not mean you are a wimp
-because even the prophet and his sahabah used to cry

If you cry because you miss your wife or children, you are not a wimp
-prophet Yaqub (a.s) cried till he lost his sight because he missed his son Yusuf (a.s)

Narrated By Anas bin Malik: We went with Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) to the blacksmith Abu Saif, and he was the husband of the wet-nurse of Ibrahim (the son of the Prophet). Allah's Apostle took Ibrahim and kissed him and smelled him and later we entered Abu Saif's house and at that time Ibrahim was in his last breaths, and the eyes of Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) started shedding tears. 'Abdur Rahman bin 'Auf said, "O Allah's Apostle, even you are weeping!" He said, "O Ibn 'Auf, this is mercy." Then he wept more and said, "The eyes are shedding tears and the heart is grieved, and we will not say except what pleases our Lord, O Ibrahim ! Indeed we are grieved by your separation." [Sahih Bukhari (2/83) No. 1303]

Many of you complain that your local masjids invite
-clean shaven people to give da'wah or the cops
-who ask them to spy and report on the Muslims
-and the imams put you to sleep when they give khutbas

The mimbar of the prophet (saw) is undermined
-how can you use it to preach democracy?
-no wonder people don’t cry anymore when they go for jumuah
-because some of you pray behind kuffaar

I saw this in S/Africa
-some maulanas told the people to vote for the ANC
-they legalized gay marriage and zina

..."O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us."...

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF MESSENGER OF ALLAH?

1. HE WAS THE LAST PROPHET

Muhammad (SAW) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allāh and the last (end) of the Prophets. And Allāh is Ever All¬Aware of everything. (Al-Ahzab 33:40)

2. HE IS THE BEST PROPHET

Those Messengers! We preferred some to others; to some of them Allāh spoke (directly); others He raised to degrees (of honour);… (Al-Baqarah 2:253)

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “I am the most noble of Adam’s descendants on the Day of Resurrection. I am the first whose grave shall be opened. I am the first to offer intercession. I am the first whose intercession shall be accepted.” [Sahih Muslim (4/1782) No. 2278]

3. IF YOU DIE NOT ACCEPTING HIM, YOU WILL ENTER HELL TO ABIDE FOREVER

-there is no choice in the matter
-you have to believe in Muhammad (saw)

Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islām, the Qur'ān and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6)

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, any Christian or Jew who heard about me and died whilst regecting me, such a person is in the hell fire to abide there forever." [Sahih Muslim (1/134) No. 153 and Musnad Ahmad (2/350) No. 8594]

-so a Unitarian Christian will still die a kaafir if he does not accept the prophet

They asked the prophet to counsel them

...He (SAW) said, "I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allah,...

-and he asked them to fear Allah

Taqwa is to place between yourself and the wrath of Allah a barrier
-by doing what is halal and abstaining from what is haram

Abdullah Ibn Masood narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Verily the most beloved speech to Allah is the servant's saying, سُبْحَانَكَ اللهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، وَتَبَارَكَ اسْمُكَ، وَتَعَالَى جَدُّكَ، وَلَا إِلَهَ غَيْرَكَ 'Subhanak Allahumma wa bihamdika wa tabaarakasmuka wa ta'aalaa jad-duka wa laa ilaaha ghayruk.' (Glorified are You, O Allah, and to You is the Praise, Blessed is Your Name and Lofty is your Majesty, there is none worthy of worship other than You). The most hated speech to Allah is when a man says to another man, اتَّقِ اللهَ 'Ittaqullah' (Fear Allah!) and he replies, عَلَيْكَ نَفْسَكَ 'Alaika Nafsaka' (Worry about your own self!)" [Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (2/142) No. 621 and al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (9/313) No. 10619]

-if your Muslim brother says to you fear Allah
-you should not say ‘be concerned about yourself first’

The sahabah used to tell each other 'fear Allah'
-saying to the person mind yours first means you are proud and arrogant
-you should say instead JazakAllah Khair

On the authority of Suhail bin Abi Saleh from his father: ‘A man once asked Abu Hurayrah (RA), ‘What is al-taqwa?” He replied, “Have you ever taken a path filled with thorns?” The man replied, “I have.” Abu Hurayrah asked him, “What did you do?” He replied, “When I saw a thorn I would dodge it or pass over it or behind it.” Abu Hurayrah said, “That is al-taqwa.”’ [al-Zuhd al-Kabir al-Bayhaqi (p350-351) No. 963]


…and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer…

The prophet (saw) told them to give absolute obedience to their ameer even if he is a slave
-because without leadership you are nothing but a headless chicken
-Allah said:

O you who believe! Obey Allāh and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allāh and His Messenger (SAW), if you believe in Allāh and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination. (An-Nisa 4:59)

The most important word in the ayah above is 'minkum'
-so the leader you obey is the Muslim
-with your aqeeda and manhaj; with the same aims and objectives
-so if the kuffaar invade a country you are not to obey them
-this is the aqeeda of the Qaadiyani
-they are suffering from animal stupidity, pathetic insanity and chronic hypocrisy

It has been narrated on the authority of Aba Sa'id al-Khudri that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: When oath of allegiance has been taken for two caliphs, kill the one for whom the oath was taken later. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4568]

...He who swears allegiance to a Caliph should give him the pledge of his hand and the sincerity of his heart (i.e. submit to him both outwardly as well as inwardly). He should obey him to the best of his capacity. If another man comes forward (as a claimant to Caliphate), disputing his authority, they (the Muslims) should behead the latter....[Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4546]

-this man is creating fitna and the unity of the Muslims is fard (above ahadith)
-he wants to create fitna that's why he also asked to be chosen


DISUNITY IS A GREAT EVIL

Abd-Allaah ibn Mas ood (RA), who criticized Uthmaan (RA) for offering the prayer in full in Mina, but despite that he also offered the prayer in full. When he was asked about that he said: Disunity is evil. [Narrated by Abu Dawood (2/199) No. 1960]

The prophet (saw) also told the sahabah

...Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the Khulafa ar-Rashideen (the rightly guided caliphs)...

WHEN DID THIS FITNA START?
-there is a hadith that says it was after Umar (r.a) died
-he was the door stopping the fitna from happening

Hudhayfah (RA) reported that Umar (RA) asked, “Which of you remembers the sayings of Allah’s Messenger (SAW) about fitnah?” So he Hudhayfah said, “I.” He then narrated, “The trial of a man lies in his family, wealth, children and neighbours (concerning rights attached to them which he violates). They are atoned by salah, fasting, sadaqab, enjoining righteousness and forbidding evil.” Umar (RA) said, “This is not what I asked. I asked about the trial and commotion that will rise like waves of the ocean.” He said, O Amir-ul-Mumineen (Commander of the faithful), there is between you and it a closed door.” Umar asked, “Will it be opened or broken?” He said, “It will be broken.” So, he said, “in that case, it will not be closed till the Last Hour.’ Abu Wail said in the hadith of Hammad that he said to Masruq, “Ask Hudhayfah, what is the door?“ He said, “That is Umar (RA) himself." [al-Bukhari (525) and Muslim (144)]


WHO WAS THE ARCHITECT BEHIND THE FITNA?
-it was Abdullah ibn Saba'
-he was a Jew who tried to do to Islam what Paul did to Christianity
-so he started the Shi'ite movement
-it is a Jewish conspiracy that has nothing to do with Islam

SHIA HUJJAH: “Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

-so the fitna started during the time of Uthman
-Abdullah ibn Saba’ caused him to be assassinated
-and his blood fell on a verse of the Qur'an

…So Allāh will suffice you against them… (Al-Baqarah 2:137)

-Allah took revenge for him
-one of them was stuffed in the body of a donkey
-they all died one by one by the sword
-from one fitna came another

This is the reality of fitna (one breeds another)
-Aisha (r.a) insisted that the killers of Uthman must be killed
-Mu’awiya refused to give bay’a to Ali
-Ali put up his caliphate for arbitration and the Khawarij objected

So the fitna of Abdullah ibn Saba' was a springboard that launched many more fitna
-and even though Ali massacred the Khawarij
-they took revenge and killed Ali
-how can one man create such a fitna?
-the Shi’ites till today insult and lie on the prophet and do same on Allah
-they accuse Aisha of having an affair

SHIA HUJJAH: The Shia believe that at the time of Mahdi’s return Imam Mahdi will resurrect Aisha (Prophet Mohammad’s wife) and execute the law of Hudud on her, for committing Zina (adultery) during her marriage. (Al-Anwar Al-Numaniyah, vol. 1, p. 161, Tafsir al-Shafi, vol. 2, p. 108, Haq al-Yaqeen, vol. 2, p. 256, Hayat al-Qulub, vol. 2, p. 611)

The prophet said to hang on to the Sunnah and that of the rightly guided caliphs
-they were 5:

Safinah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “The Khilafah (Caliphate) will last among my ummah for thirty years. Then there will be kingdom after that.” Thereafter, Safinah said, “Count the khilafah of Abu Bakr.” Then he said, “And of Umar (RA) and Uthman, and count the Khilafah of Ali We will find the total to be thirty years. Saeed said that he told him that the Banu Umayyah imagined that the Khilafah rested with them. He said, The Banu Zarqa lie. Rather, they were kings, the worst of kings. [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/503) No. 2226 and Musnad Ahmad (5/221) No. 21978]


1. ABU BAKR
-ruled for 2 years

2. UMAR
-ruled for 10 years

3. UTHMAN
-ruled for 12 years

4. ALI
-ruled for 5 and 1/2 years

5. HASSAN
-ruled for 6 months

Therefore these caliphs can introduce something to Islam and it will be considered a Sunnah
-e.g. the 2nd adhan was introduced by Uthman
-and flogging 80 lashes for drinking alcohol was introduced by Umar
-he also introduced the taraweeh of 20 rak’ah prayed under one imam

So you can pray 20 or 8 rak’ah for taraweeh
-and you are not allowed to criticise those who do 20 and vice versa

'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]

-the prophet (saw) gave these sahabah the authority

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)]

The Qur'an was compiled in the Quraishi dialect by Uthman
-the Qur'an was put in book format by Abu Bakr

If the rightly guided caliphs stopped at Hassan, where does that leave Mu’awiya?
-he was a king and not considered among the rightly guided caliphs
-but this kingship was governed by Shari’ah
-look at Umar ibn Abdul Aziz (r.a); he was a king too
-so if a person becomes a king and ruled with the Shari’ah, he is not a kaafir

So even though the status quo is kingship
-it does not mean it is baatil
-what determines if we accept the leadership or not
-is if the person governed with the Shari’ah
-when Hassan handed over his caliphate to Mu’awiya, the prophet praised what he did

Narrated Abu Bakra: I heard the Prophet talking at the pulpit while al-Hasan was sitting beside him, and he (i.e. the Prophet) was once looking at the people and at another time Al-Hasan, and saying, "This son of mine is a Saiyid (i.e. chief) and perhaps Allah will bring about an agreement between two sects of the Muslims through him." [Sahih Bukhari (5/26) No. 3746]

-this brought unity and the Muslims were able to conquer North Africa

Ma'moon was a Mu’tazilite but;

1. HE BELIEVED IN AL WALAA WAL BARAA

2. HE IMPLEMENTED THE SHARIAH

3. HE DID JIHAD

-these were the reasons why Ahmad ibn Hanbal did not make takfir on him

This fitna continued during the time of Abu Huraira
-and he said to the people:

Narrated By Abu Huraira: I have memorized two kinds of knowledge from Allah's Apostle . I have propagated one of them to you and if I propagated the second, then my pharynx (throat) would be cut (i.e. killed). [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 3, Hadith #121]

-What branch of knowledge did he hide from the ummah?
-the prophet told him the descriptions of all the characteristics of the wicked caliphs
-and he lived to see them
-so he did not say it

Mansour dragged out the hand of Imam Malik
-because he refused to work for him and pass dodgy fatwas for him
-he also dumped Abu Hanifa in prison and poisoned him for same reason

A person invents bid'ah because he thinks Islam is too old
-like the man who uses durex to sleep with his wife while she is menstruating
-this is bid'ah in regards to fiqh
-using democracy to implement Shari’ah is bid'ah in regards to manhaj
-but the worst bid'ah is the one regarding aqeeda

Bid'ah in regards to aqeeda is for example
-the believe that to dismantle the Shari’ah is minor kufr
-or to insult the prophet (saw) does not make you a kaafir
-or you cannot make takfir on a man who commits major kufr until he makes it halal
-the hadith below proves otherwise

Narrated By Al-Bara' ibn Azib: I met my uncle who was carrying a standard. I asked him: 'Where are you going?' He said: 'The Apostle of Allah (SAW) has sent me to a man who has married his father's wife. He has ordered me to cut off his head and take his property.' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/157) No. 4457, Sunan al-Nasa'i (6/109) No. 3332, Sunan al-Darime (2/205) No. 2239, Musnad Ahmad (4/290) No. 18580]

-or no jihad without a caliph

The MADkhalis also believe that joining the UN is halal
-because the prophet signed the treaty of Hudaibiyya
-they also believe that prophet Yusuf worked for a kaafir king
-so you can work for the taghoot leaders

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)

-these people who have bid'ah on aqeeda focus on small things
-they shout bid'ah to the person walking around with his tashbeeh
-what are you shouting about when your bid'ah is greater
-because it takes you outside the fold of Islam
-you went against the ijmaa of the ummah

Ibn Kathir (rh) said: “So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad 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 Shariah of Muhammad (SAW). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims.” [Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, (Vol. 13, p119)]

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.” [Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)]

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

To learn your aqeeda is the greatest fiqh
-Allah asked the people of bid'ah a question

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)

-this is used to checkmate the people of bid'ah






QUESTION 1:-

Assalamu alaikum shaikh, do you think a kafir is antagonistic to Islam if a kafir says "muslims are nice, kind, and peaceful" but he slanders the mujahideen calling them extremists and what not. And in what circumstance does zakah become compulsory, do you have to hit a certain age and what if you live with your parents?

Answer 1:-
There is a hadith that says the wealth of the orphan should be invested
-so that zakah doesn't eat it up

“Whoever takes care of an orphan who has wealth, let him invest it in trade and not leave it to be consumed by zakaah.” This was narrated by al-Tirmidhi (641)

-the one who bad mouths the mujahideen is a kaafir
-because they are fighting to liberate land and man
-they are the cream of the crop



Question 2:-

Is it haram to have a dinner on thanksgiving day?


Answer 2:-
Thanksgiving is an American culture that they have dinner to thank Allah
-for giving them America
-if you go there just to keep family ties then it is ok


QUESTION 3:-

Shaikh I told a sister that niqab can become fard if the Khalifah imposes it and i also told her that the ruling of the Khalifah is over the order of the husband. Are these two things correct?

Answer 3:-
-these two things are correct
-so if the caliph makes it fard then it is fard
-when he makes it fard then is a matter of personal ijtihad
-those who say it is Sunnah base it on the hadith of Bilal

Jabir ibn Abdullah reported: I observed prayer with the Messenger of Allah on the Eid day. He commenced with prayer before the sermon, without adhan or iqama. He then stood up leaning on Bilal and he commanded (them) to be on guard (against evil for the sake of) Allah and he exhorted (them) on obedience to Him, and he preached to the people and admonished them. He then walked on till he came to the women and preached to them and admonished them and encouraged them to give alms, for most of them are the fuel for Hell. A woman having a dark spot on her cheek stood up and said, "Why is it so, Messenger of Allah?" He said, "For you grumble often and show ingratitude to your spouses." And they began to give alms out of their ornaments such as their earrings and rings, which they threw in the cloak of Bilal. [Sahih Muslim (2/603) No. 885]



QUESTION 4:-

Assalamu alaikum sheikh, my question is who was the caliph when Abu Hurairah talked about the two aspects of knowledge? Also don't you find it strange the khalij bring 103 scholars for petition on Syria to turn it into Iraq (80% Sunni majority dying) but there is no fatwa for Palestine or no fly zone or intervention?

Answer 4:-
-Whenever Syria is sorted out Palestine will be sorted out
-don't forget the army of the Mahdi will come from Syria
-and that Jesus (a.s) will pray behind the Mahdi in As-Sham
-this is where Jesus will descend
-the bulk of the army is coming from As-sham



QUESTION 5:-

We often visit a community center of a Turkish organization to talk and drink tea. On some occasions the organization invites politicians to promote their party. Is it allowed to still come to this center that is owned by this Turkish organization?

Answer 5:-
This place is a public place
-sometimes people talk about Quran and Sunnah
-other times they talk about politics and preach democracy
-you need to go there and teach them the right aqeeda
-if you stay away from every place you may be a hermit
-if you don't mix with the misguided people
-you will not be able to guide them


Ibn Umar (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said, “The believer that mixes with people and endures the hardship they cause, he is better than the believer who does not mix with people and so does not endure the hardship they cause." [Musnad Ahmad (5/365) No. 23147, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/160) No. 4032, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/243) No. 2507]
