SERIES :: INDEED ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM 

By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
Evening dars: May 08, 2013

(Notes typed live by AT10)
(Edited and posted by Z and AT10)

Allah has made a declaration in the Quran:

And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea, and have provided them with At-Taiyibat (lawful good things), and have preferred them above many of those whom We have created with a marked preference. (Al-Isra 17:70)

How did Allah honour Adam?
- This honour that Allah has bestowed upon us
- Not even Iblees could cope with it.
- Iblees became green with envy
- Then Iblees made a threat, a promise and a prediction
- They can be found in 17:62

[Iblis (Satan)] said: "See? This one whom You have honoured above me, if You give me respite (keep me alive) to the Day of Resurrection, I will surely seize and mislead his offspring (by sending them astray) all but a few!" (Al-Isra 17:62)

- What the shaytan is saying:
- Allah gave him a raw deal
- How could Allah prefer man over him?
- He is saying "watch this space"
- I am not going to go quietly,
- I am going to destroy his progeny
- The prediction is that the majority will fall into Shaytan's web
- He Iblees will wait for them with every single strategy and every single trick.

- Allah told the children of Adam: He Has honoured Bani Adam
- We have preferred them with a distinct preferment

30 WAYS THAT ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM

- this is not the same as Allah's blessings to mankind

1: ALLAH CREATED YOU WITH HIS TWO HANDS.

Allah Created four things with his two hands,

Mujahid narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) said:“Allah created four things with His Hand; 1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Aadam and4. The paradise of ‘Adn. He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be]and it was.” [Adh Dhahabi in ‘Mukhtasar al-‘Uluw’ (p105), Abu al-Shaikhal-Asbahani in 'al-‘Adhuma' (5/1555), Tafsir al-Tabari (21/239), ‘The chain isauthentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’]

1) The Arsh, 2) The Qalam (the Pen), 3) Adam,4) The paradise of 'Adn

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

- This is the Quranic verse that tells you that Allah Created Adam with His Two Hands
- This translation actually translates what Allah said.
- Not every verse is translated properly
- E.g, some translators skip the word "hama" which means "black mud"

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "I am going to create a man (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. (Al-Hijr 15:28)

- Allah Warns you about "hawa2" = Evil and corrupted desires.

Butas for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrainedhimself from impure evil desires, and lusts. (An-Nazi'at 79:40)

Verily, Paradise will be his abode.(An-Nazi'at 79:41)


- Ahmad Ibn Hanbal said:
- to conquer your desires: you have been elevated above the angels.


- In a democracy the god they worship is hawa (desires)
- When Allah Created Adam - Adam was lying in state,
- Allah didn't Blow the Breath of Life in to him.
- Iblees looked at him and spat, and kicked him

- He Iblees Said: "If you are greater than me, I will never obey you, but if I am greater than you, of assurity I will destroy you"

[ Al Bidaaya wal Niyyaha, Ibn Kathir]

2: ALLAH BLEW INTO ADAM THE RUH

"So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him (Adam) the soul which I created for him, then fall (you) down prostrating yourselves unto him." (Al-Hijr 15:29)

3: HE TAUGHT ADAM THE NAMES OF EVERYTHING UNDER THE HEAVENS: ALLAH GAVE ADAM KNOWLEDGE

- when you have knowledge you are elevated above those who don't have knowledge

And He taught Adam all the names (of everything) , then He showed them to the angels and said, "Tell Me the names of these if you are truthful." (Al-Baqarah 2:31)

- The Angels used to claim they were the most knowledgeable of Allah's creation
- So Allah gave them a test
- They did not pass the test, but Adam passed the test
- The one with knowledge and the one without, are they equal?
- They are not equal.

4: ALLAH GAVE ADAM THE HONOUR OF DWELLING IN THE HEAVEN

And We said: "O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in the Paradise and eat both of you freely with pleasure and delight of things therein as wherever you will, but come not near this tree or you both will be of the Zalimun (wrong-doers)." (Al-Baqarah 2:35)

5: ALLAH COMMANDED THE ANGELS TO BOW DOWN TO ADAM

- This is when the shaytan was fuming

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "I am going to create a man (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. (Al-Hijr 15:28)

"So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him (Adam) the soul which I created for him, then fall (you) down prostrating yourselves unto him." (Al-Hijr 15:29)

This is when Iblees became green with envy
- And he refused to be of those who bow down.
- We have seen many translations of the word "hama"
- The best translation is from Pickthall.
- Because he used the words: black altered mud
- In Biddaya wal Niyyaha written by Ibn Kathir.
- He said that when Allah sent the Angels to collect the earth,
- To create Adam, they collected all different colours of mud
- The predominant mud is the black mud.

We must learn Arabic, so we are not at the mercy of the translators.
- they don't always translate accurately
- In Sahih Muslim: It has been mistranslated that chess is haram.
- But The Prophet (saw) said "nard" is haram: Nard = Backgammon
- Shatranj = chess
- Backgammon is a game you play with dice
- But chess is a game you play with the brain

Burayda (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said:Whosoever plays with backgammon is as though he dipped his hands in the flesh and blood of a swine?. (Sahih Muslim, No. 2260).

6. ALLAH MADE US HIS KHALIFAH ON EARTH

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, - while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You." He (Allah) said: "I know that which you do not know." (Al-Baqarah 2:30)

7: ALLAH GAVE US THE AQL ( THE HUMAN INTELLECT / REASON )

- The worst of created creatures are those people who don't use their aql
- If you are a man, and you can't think for yourself, - your wife will never respect you
- After Allah blessed us with the aql
- He Told us that if we do not use it, we would lose our status of man
- And you have become the worst of creatures

Verily! The worst of (moving) living creatures with Allah are the deaf and the dumb, those who understand not (i.e.the disbelievers). (Al-Anfal 8:22)

- If you don't use your aql you have lost your honour and status as man.
- Would you buy expensive goods, such as gold and diamonds off the street?
- What about the one who went to church as a child
- And accepted what the priest told him
- That God was born from the belly of a woman.
- We touched on this is yesterday’s dars *The 15 Lies of Taghoot *

- When the angels are dumping the wayward in the hell-fire: * 67:9-10

They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we belied him and said: 'Allah never sent down anything (of revelation), you are only in great error.'" (Al-Mulk 67:9)

And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!" (Al-Mulk 67:10)

- Allah gave us the aql to save us from the hell-fire but we didn't use our aql!
- This is how important the aql is:
- the kuffaar will admit that they should have used their aql

8: ALLAH GAVE CLOTHING TO COVER NAKEDNESS

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

- When Adam and Eve were in the Garden 7:27
- The whole purpose was for them to lose their heavenly clothing:
- So shaytan could laugh at them
- Allah told you in this ayah, that this was the purpose.
- A human shaytan likes to uncover the private parts of people
- because he is walking in the footsteps of his father Iblees
- Have you heard about the Abu Ghraib
- They stripped the prisoners naked

Fidel Castro made posters, to show the nifaq of the Americans:

Castro uses Abu Ghraib pictures to hit back at US :
http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/world/archives/2004/12/19/2003215792

- Maybe the Americans were not embarrassed
- because they eat pork, therefore they have no shame

- The prophet (saws) said: "Don't show your private parts to people".
- Only your wives, or right-hand possessed can see your private parts.

Bahz ibn Hakim reported from his father who from his grandfather that he asked the Prophet (SAW): 'from whom they should conceal their awrah and from whom not?' He said, “Guard your awrah except from your wife and what your right hand possesses (female slaves).” He asked, “O Messenger of Allah (SAW) what when people are with each other?” He said, “If it is possible that no one may observe your private parts, see that none sees them.” He asked, “O Prophet (SAW) of Allah what if one of us is alone?” He said, “But Allah has more right that people should be ashamed before Him.”[Sunan Tirmidhi (5/97) No. 2769, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/40) No. 4017, Musnad Ahmad(5/3) No. 20046]

- That's why they are called private, they are supposed to be hidden.
- They like to bomb wedding parties: Why?
- because the bastard child hates to see people getting married.

9: ALLAH GAVE YOU A CONSCIENCE
- to know the good from the bad

And by Nafs (Adam or a person or a soul,etc.), and Him Who perfected him in proportion; (Ash-Shams 91:7)
Then He showed him what is wrong for him and what is right for him; (Ash-Shams 91:8)

- Whether you are a Muslim, Christian or a Jew:
- You know it is wrong to murder innocent people
- you know it is wrong to have an affair

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Part of the perfection of one’s Islam is his leaving that which does not concern him." 

[A hasan (good)hadith which was related by at-Tirmidhi and others in this fashion.]

10: ALLAH MADE YOU BORN MUSLIM

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, “Every child is born on the religion (of Islam). Then his parents make him a Jew, a Christian or a polytheist.” Someone said, “O Messenger of Allah,(what about) those who die before (their parents convert them)?” He said,“Allah knows best what they would have done (if they had survived).”
[Al-Bukhari (6599) and Muslim (2658)]

- Even Bush and Blair were born Muslim.
- even though today they are human devils
- their environment turned them into human devils

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone)Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq­illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not.[Tafsir At­ Tabari, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30)

- This is the evidence that every single person was born a Muslim

11: ALLAH MADE YOU WALK ON YOUR TWO FEET AND EAT WITH YOUR HAND

- Not walking on all fours, and eat with your mouth.
- You eat with your right hand, it is a disgrace to eat with the left hand
- because the devil eats with his left hand
- To eat with your right hand is an honour, and it is compulsory.
- To walk on your feet is an honour:
- Because on Judgement day Allah shall disgrace people

Those who will be gathered to Hell (prone) on their faces, such will be in an evil state, and most astray from the (Straight)Path. (Al-Furqan 25:34)

Abu Hurayrah reported that Allah’s Messenger(SAW) said, “On the Day of Resurrection, mankind will be gathered in three categories - a category of those walking on foot, another of riders and the third of those walking on their faces.” Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah, how would they walk on their faces?” He said, ‘Surely, he who makes them walk on their feet is Able to make them walk on their faces. Know that they will walk on their faces safeguarding from every ascent and thorn.” 

[Sunan Tirmidhi(5/305) No. 3142, Musnad Ahmad (2/363) No. 8740]

- By making the wayward crawl on their faces
- Do not ask how.
- You are not allowed to ask these questions,
- like how is it that Allah will make the people crawl on their faces?
- We gave guidelines "How to ask questions in Islam"

ETIQUETTES OF ASKING QUESTIONS:

http://authentictauheed.blogspot.com/2011/11/226-islamic-etiquettes-of-asking.html

This Day, We shall seal up their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their legs will bear witness to what they used to earn. (It is said that one's left thigh will be the first to bear thewitness). [Tafsir At-Tabari, Vol. 22, Page 24] (Ya-Sin 36:65)

'Abdullah ibn 'Amr reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said: "The fast and the Qur'an are two intercessors for the servant of Allah on the Day of Resurrection. The fast will say: 'O Lord, I prevented him from his food and desires during the day. Let me intercede for him.' The Qur'an will say: 'I prevented him from sleeping at night. Let me intercede for him.' And their intercession will be accepted." 

[Musnad Ahmad (2/174) No. 6626, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/740) No.2036, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (3/378) No. 1839]

- It is not a halal question to ask how Allah will make the legs and hands testify;

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 un-comprehendable, 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-NaeemAl-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

- Imam Malik kicked a man out of his study circle for asking one question:
- When you open your mouth and ask these stupid questions;
- We know you are a munafiq, and you don't believe
- When the munafiq speaks he exposes himself:
- Allah told us: 47:30

Had We willed, We could have shown them to you, and you should have known them by their marks, but surely, you will know them by the tone of their speech! And Allah knows all your deeds. (Muhammad 47:30)

12: ALLAH MADE BANI ADAM HIS MASTER PIECE : THE MOST HANDSOME OF HIS CREATION.

Allah said:
By the fig, and the olive, (At-Tin 95:1)
By Mount Sinai, (At-Tin 95:2)
And by this city of security (Makkah),(At-Tin 95:3)
Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould), (At-Tin 95:4)

- A painting of Picasso was sold for 100 million US Dollars
- To a anonymous buyer
- From all the creations of Allah.
- Man is the masterpiece

Sheikh Abdur-Rahman ibn Naasir Al-Barraak on Usama Hasan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJm-FCCjdbg

- A Saudi Salafi preaching the ideology of Darwinism in the masjid
- This Shaikh: Abdur-Rahman ibn Naasir Al-Barraak made takfir on the Saudi Salafi because he used the masjid to preach Darwinism
- What else can you expect from the Saudi Salafi, they are low life scum of the earth
- Munafiqeen, and waste of space

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet said,"Allah created Adam in his complete shape and form (directly), sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height. When He created him, He said (to him),"Go and greet that group of angels sitting there, and listen what they will say in reply to you, for that will be your greeting and the greeting of your offspring." Adam (went and) said, 'As-Salamu alaikum (Peace be upon you).' They replied, 'As Salamu-'Alaika wa Rahmatullah (Peace and Allah's Mercy be on you) So they increased 'Wa Rahmatullah' The Prophet added 'So whoever will enter Paradise, will be of the shape and form of Adam. Since then the creation of Adam's (offspring) (i.e. stature of human beings is being diminished continuously) to the present time." 

[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book74, Hadith #246]

- Allah Created Adam in His own image and made him sixty arm’s length.
- Anyone who believes in Darwinism is a five-star kaafir
- The Sharh of the hadith is that Allah gave Adam his own (special) form [shape]

- If you are not handsome it is very difficult to get married
- The elephant man in White Chapel, London:
- They made documentaries about him
- he was so ugly that he lived and died with no wife and no children.

13:ALLAH GAVE US SHYNESS
- Hayya = Shyness

Then they both ate of the tree, and so their private parts appeared to them, and they began to stick on themselves the leaves from Paradise for their covering. Thus did Adam disobey his Lord, so he went astray. (Ta-Ha 20:121)

- When the shaytan told them to eat from the haram tree:
- They lost their clothing:
- Instinctively they took leaves and covered their private parts
- For you to walk naked in the street: You are a mad man and you have no honour
- For you to be in a society in which the women are no longer shy;
- That society is cursed.
- These women slept with all kinds of famous people.
- Then they would go to the newspapers and tell about the affair
- They write books about the affairs

Abu Huraira (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Hayaa is part of Imaan and Imaan is in Paradise. Lewdness is part of hardness of heart and hardness of heart is in the Fire.” 
[Musnad Ahmad(2/501) No. 10519]

It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) passed by an Ansaari man who was exhorting his brother to be modest. The Messenger of Allaah (SAW) said: “Let him be, for modesty is part of faith.” [al-Bukhaari (24) and Muslim (36)]

- For you to have intercourse in public:
- You have lost your honour
- A human is not supposed to have sex in public

Anas (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah(SAW) said: “Every religion has a particular manner or characteristic. And the characteristic of Islam is Hayaa.” [Sunan Ibn Majah (5/276) No. 4181]

- Dogs have sex in public
- Shaikh lived in Saudi Arabia for 8 years:
- 2 Camels will never have sex in public:
- They are proud animals

Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) saying, "Pride and arrogance are characteristics of the rural Bedouins while calmness is found among the owners of sheep..."
[al-Bukhari (3499) and Muslim (52)]

- The prophet said: When you look after camels you will become proud:
- Because you are supposed to be shy;
- A Muslim woman is not allowed to sit with her friends and discuss her bedroom secrets;

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (RA) reported the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Indeed from the worst of people on the Day of Resurrection is one who has marital relations with his wife and then spreads her private matters.” 
[Sahih Muslim (2/1060) No. 1437]

-The prophet (saws) has made it haraam.

Asma’ bint Yazeed, who said that she was with the Messenger of Allah (SAW), when men and women were sitting with him, and he said: “I think there are some men who talk about what they do with their wives,and that there are some women who talk about what they do with their husbands.”The people stayed silent. [Asma’] said: “Yes, by Allah, O Messenger of Allah,[women] do that and [men] do that!” He said, “Do not do that, for it is as if a male devil met a female devil in the street and had intercourse with her whilst the people were watching.” 
[Musnad Ahmad (Vol. 6 p.456) No. 27624]

- Because Allah honoured us with shyness.
- Have you been to a woman's hair salon?
- All they talk about is sex, or the latest fashion
- Because women are lacking in Eman and intellect

Indeed Allah Has Honoured Bani Adam ( Part 2 ) 
By Shaikh Abdullah El- Faisal 

Evening dars in Authentic Tauheed paltalk room: May 9th 2013
(Notes by “AuthenticTauheed10”)
(Edited and posted by Z & AT10)

We read the ayah 17:70, in which Allah Made a Declaration

And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea, and have provided them withAt-Taiyibāt (lawful good things), and have preferred them above many of those whom We have created with a marked preference.      (Al-Isra 17:70)

14: ALLAH BLESSED US WITH GHEERAH (JEALOUSY)

For you to feel jealous over your wife;
This is one of her rights over you

Abdullah ibn Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Three people will not enter paradise and Allah will not look at them on the Day of Judgment: the one who is disobedient to his parents, the woman who imitates men and the ad-Dayooth (cuckold, weak man who feels no jealousy over his women folk)..."  
   [Musnad Ahmad (2/134) No. 6180,Musnad al-Bazzar (12/270) No. 6051, al-Sunnan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (2/63) No.2354, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (3/51) No. 2443]

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet; said,“Indeed, Allah has Ghayrah, and the faithful believer has Ghayrah, and the Ghayrah which Allah has is provoked when a believer commits that which Allah has forbidden.”           [al-Bukhari (4925) and Muslim (2761)]

- Your wife's rights do not stop at food, clothing and shelter.
- You should also feel jealousy for the wives of your Muslim brothers;
- The same way you don't want a man to chat up your wife,
- You should also feel jealous over the wives of your Muslim brothers

- A real Muslim is upset when his wife, or the wives of his brothers dress scantily
- When Asma' came to the prophet in a see-through dress;
- The prophet told her:


Narated By 'Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin : Asma, daughter of Abu Bakr, entered upon the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) wearing thin clothes. The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) turned his attention from her. He said: O Asma', when a woman reaches the age of menstruation, it does not suit her that she displays her parts of body except this and this, and he pointed to her face and hands. 
  [Dawud, Book 027, Hadith Number 4092.]

- One day a sahaba said if I catch a man with my wife, I will chop off his head.

Al-Mughira b. Shu'ba (RA) reported that Sa'db. 'Ubada (RA) said: If I were to see a man with my wife, I would have struck him with the sword, and not with the flat part (side) of it. When Allah's Messenger (PBUH) heard of that, he said: Are you surprised at Sa'd's jealousy of his honour? By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. Because of His jealousy Allah has prohibited abomination, both open and secret And no person is more jealous of his honour than Allah,and no persons, is more fond of accepting an excuse than Allah, on account of which He has sent messengers, announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no one is more fond of praise than Allah on account of which Allah has promised Paradise. 
   [Sahih Muslim, Book 9, Hadith #3572]

- Allah Doesn't Like it when you worship false deities;
- No one is more jealous than Allah.

- So Allah honoured Bani Adam with jealousy
- The kuffaar in the west, some of them dabble in wife-swapping
- Even dogs have jealousy
- When you have no jealousy, you are below the level of the dogs

- Allah said:

Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low,  (At-Tin 95:5)

- The lowest of the low, are those who worship wood and stones besides Allah
- And those who have no jealousy
- When Shaikh was in university;
- The Shaikhs said that jealousy was not the bad thing
- It was envy that was the bad thing.
- Shaikh asked Abdullah Tuwaijiri;
- What if a man should catch a man in his home with his wife;
- and the man kills the man and his wife.
- Shaikh Abdullah Tuwaijiri said, that in the Shariah;
- The man would be protecting his honour.
- You cannot kill the man, he walks free from court
- Abdullah Tuwaijiri gave this fatwa in 1990

- Jealousy that Allah instilled in you, is one of the ways that Allah honoured Bani Adam
- You also have jealousy for your deen;
- You do not like people to insult your deen
- Your jealousy is not for your daughter alone
- It is for the daughters of all your Muslim brothers.
- It envelopes all of the Ummah of Muhammad (saw)

- Shaikh went to Leicester (UK) for a conference;
- There was a commotion - A black Muslim killed a black kaafir;
- The black kaafir he killed was a pimp,
- he pulled the hijab from the Muslim woman,
- they gave him 12 years in prison
- The community told the police that the Muslim was a student of Shaikh

- If you mess with Muslim women by pulling their hijabs from their heads
- you are asking for serious trouble!
- A similar case took place in the Bahamas

- If you pull the hijab from the Muslim woman,
- Even if the brother doesn't know the woman,
- She is his sister and he would defend her honour
- The news of a Muslim woman’s distress reached Mu'tasim
- He led a battalion of Muslims to retrieve the honour of one Muslim woman.
- When you have no jealousy over your women folk,
- In the letter prior to going for battle, he Mu'tasim titled it "To the dog of Rome"

- When you have no jealousy over your women folk,
- You have no honour

15: ALLAH SENT AMONG US PROPHETS AND MESSENGERS

Allah said:

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, - while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You." He (Allah) said: "I know that which you do not know."    (Al-Baqarah 2:30)

- The tafseer is that Allah would not abandon man,
- But He would Send unto us prophets after prophets and messengers after messengers

- We have five strong willed Messengers
- the 5 strong willed messengers are: Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad
- 1)Noah, 2) Abraham, 3) Moses, 4) Jesus, 5) Muhammad. * According to their age (their era) *

ARRANGED ACCORDING TO GREATNESS:
- 1) Muhammad
- 2) Abraham
- 3) Moses
- 4) Jesus
- 5) Noah

- You are not allowed to entertain the idea that Moses was greater than Abraham
- When you recite your salah,
- you mention the name Muhammad beside the name Abraham
- When the Rasool went to the heavens,
- he saw Abraham in the seventh heaven
- and Moses in the sixth heaven
- We are not making distinction between the prophets.

Allah said:
Those Messengers! We preferred some to others; to some of them Allah spoke (directly); others He raised to degrees (of honour); and to 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), We gave clear proofs and evidences, and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)].

If Allah had willed, succeeding generations would not have fought against each other, after clear Verses of Allah had come to them, but they differed - some of them believed and others disbelieved. If Allah had willed, they would not have fought against one another, but Allah does what He likes. (Al-Baqarah 2:253)

- It is haraam to make distinction between them;
- To make distinction on the basis of 'assabiyah
- Racism, tribalism etc..
- The Jews make distinction on the prophets on the basis of 'assabiyah
- 'assabiyyah is the ideology of Iblees

16: ALLAH REVEALED UNTO US BOOKS AFTER BOOKS
- AND BY PROTECTING THE QURAN FROM;
 CORRUPTION, INCONSISTENCIES, DISCREPANCIES & INCONGRUITIES

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur’an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption).    (Al-Hijr 15:9)

It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur’an) to you (Muhammad SAW) with truth, confirming what came before it. And he sent down the Taurāt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel).  (Aali Imran 3:3)

- So when Allah Said to the Angels, "I know that which you know not" ;
- It means all of the above

17: ALLAH HAS RAISED UP FROM AMONG US:

- SAALIHOON ( Righteous people) 
- SIDIQOON (Truthful people )
- MURABITOON ( Those who keep watch)
- MUJAHIDOON ( Fighters)
- Ulema ( Scholars ) 
- DUAAT ( Callers to Islam ) 
- SHUHADA ( Martyrs )

And whoso obeys Allah and the Messenger(Muhammad SAW), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddiqûn (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr As-­Siddiq), the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are! (An-Nisa 4:69)

- Sometimes a scholar from the Ummah of Muhammad has more followers than a prophet of Bani Israel.
- Never underestimate the Ummah of Muhammad (saw)

- Abu Hanifa has more adherents to his madhaab than the followers of Moses
- There are maybe 20 million followers of Musa (as)
- But Abu Hanifah has more than 500 million followers.
- Nigeria alone has 80 Million Muslims, they are Maalikis
- In Senegal, Gambia, they are all Maalikis
- There are at least 500 Million followers...
- all of North Africa are Malikis
- Indonesia, Somalia, they are all Shafii'

- When Musa (as) heard about the excellence of the Ummah of Muhammad
- He made a dua to be from the Ummah of Muhammad
- Allah did not answer his dua
- Jesus made the same dua, Allah answered his dua

Abu Hurayrah (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The Hour will not begin until the son of Maryam descends among you as a just ruler. He will break the cross, kill the pigs and abolish the jizyah, and money will become abundant until no one will accept it.” 
     [al-Bukhari (2222) and Muslim (155)]

- Jesus will come back towards the end of time as an ummati of Muhammad (saw)

Allah said:

And he ['Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]shall be a known sign for (the coming of) the Hour (Day of Resurrection) [i.e. 'Iesa's (Jesus) descent on the earth]. Therefore have no doubt concerning it(i.e. the Day of Resurrection). And follow Me (Allah) (i.e. be obedient to Allah and do what He orders you to do, O mankind)! This is the Straight Path (of Islāmic Monotheism, leading to Allah and to His Paradise).      (Az-Zukhruf 43:61)


- Jesus is one of the Major signs of the Day of Judgement
- the above ayah is proof of the return of Esa (as) before the coming of the hour

- This is the tafseer of Allah's Words to the Angels " I Know that which you know not "/
- Not all of the humans will turn out to be devils,
- Allah Raised up from among them:

- SAALIHOON (righteous people) , SIDIQOON (Truthful people ), MURABITOON ( Those who keep watch), MUJAHIDOON ( Fighters ), Ulema ( Scholars ) , DUAAT ( Callers to Islam ), SHUHADA ( Martyrs )

- Allah Said about these people: 4:69

And whoso obeys Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddiqûn (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr As­Siddiq), the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are! (An-Nisa4:69)

- Iblees could not cope when he saw how Allah had given honour to Bani Adam;
- He went on the war path - declared war on Adam and his progeny

[Iblīs (Satan)] said: "See? This one whom You have honoured above me, if You give me respite (keep me alive) to the Day of Resurrection, I will surely seize and mislead his offspring (by sending them astray) all but a few!" (Al-Isra 17:62)

- Iblees thought he knew more than Allah
- Even the human shayateen think they know more than Allah

18: ALLAH HAS BLESSED US WITH VARIOUS FACULTIES;
- Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling, writing, and the "bayyan" [ The ability to speak ]

- Do not underestimate the blessing of writing;

Allah said:

Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),    (Al-'Alaq 96:1)
Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).      (Al-'Alaq 96:2)
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,     (Al-'Alaq 96:3)
Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)],     (Al-'Alaq 96:4)
Has taught man that which he knew not.    (Al-'Alaq 96:5)

- If you don't write things down, you will forget things.
- There was a scholar in Egypt called Layth Ibn Saad
- When Imam Shaafi' went and met him, it caused his head to spin
- He had never seen a sea of knowledge like that in his life.

- Imam Shaafi' said Layth Ibn Saad had more knowledge than Imam Malik
- If that is so, where is the madhaab of Layth Ibn Saad, Sufyan al-Thawri and others?
- They evaporated; because they did not write.
- They under estimated the power of the pen
- When they died they took their knowledge to their graves
- When you write books, you leave the knowledge for the benefit of the Ummah

Abu Huraira (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: (1) A continuous charity, (2) knowledge by which people derive benefit, (3) pious son who prays for him." 

[Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 38, Muslim (3/1255) No. 1631, Abu Dawud (3/117) No. 2880, al-Nasa'i (6/251) No.3651, Tirmidhi (3/660) No. 1376, al-Darime (1/148) No. 559, Ahmad (2/372) No.8831]

- Ibn Hazm saved the madhaab of Ad-Dhahari
- Ibn Hazm and Ad-Dhahari are literalists,
- They take the text literally,

- When Allah said, When your wife finishes her menses and takes a shower,
- go to bed with her, they said it meant; that very day - do not delay.

They ask you concerning menstruation. Say: that is an Adha (a harmful thing for a husband to have a sexual intercourse with his wife while she is having her menses), therefore keep away
from women during menses and go not unto them till they have purified (from menses and have taken a bath). And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah has
ordained for you (go in unto them in any manner as long as it is in their vagina). Truly, Allah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves (by taking a
bath and cleaning and washing thoroughly their private parts, bodies, for their prayers, etc.). 
  (Al-Baqarah 2:222)

- Ad-Dhahari said about following hadith:
- That the woman will enter paradise but not smell it while there, it is taken literally.

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]

- Allah blessed Bani Adam with bayyan ( Ability to speak )

The Most Beneficent (Allah)! (Ar-Rahman 55:1)
Has taught (you mankind) the Qur’an (by HisMercy).    (Ar-Rahman 55:2)
He created man.    (Ar-Rahman 55:3)
He taught him eloquent speech.    (Ar-Rahman55:4)

- Do not underestimate the power of bayyan:
- A man who is speaking kufr could make it sound like Islam!

Narrated Ibn 'Umar: 'Two men came from the East and addressed the people who wondered at their eloquent speeches. On thatt he Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Some eloquent speech is as effective as magic."'            [Sahih Bukhari (7/19) No. 5146]

- Fidel Castro of Cuba was gifted with speech.
- He started a communist revolution in Cuba
- It lasted for over 50 years

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)]

- You convince people to embrace Islam with the bayyan
- You get barakah for all his good deeds.
- One of the Six special favours given to the Rasool (saws), was bayyan

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I have been given superiority over the other prophets in six respects: I have been given words which are concise but comprehensive in meaning; I have been helped by terror (in the hearts of enemies): spoils have been made lawful to me: the earth has been made for me clean and a place of worship; I have been sent to all mankind and the line of prophets is closed with me.          [Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Hadith #1062]

- When you study Islam, they teach you rhetoric ( the art of discourse )
- Balagha (rhetoric)

INDEED ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM (PART 3)

Evening dars May 11th 2013

By Shaikh Abdullah El-Faisal

(Notes typed live by AT7 / AT10)
(Edited and posted by AT10)

-Yesterday we stopped at number 19
-which was Allah has blessed us with the criterion
-the furqan which is the ability to judge between right and wrong
-good and bad
-Allah said:

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allah, He will grant you Furqan a criterion [(to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. making a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you, and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty. (Al-Anfal 8:29)

-if a society chooses in the majority against gay marriage that society has honour
-and if the other way round then that society has lost the criterion
-thelack of furqan means you have no honour

-The ultimate furqan is with the believers
-Allah said:


...But honour, power and glory belong to Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and to the believers, but the hypocrites know not. (Al-Munafiqun 63:8)


- The prophet (saw) used to make a dua
- for the criterion

- In France they allow incest
- and this is because they have lost their honour


20. ALLAH GAVE US FIRAASA-INTUITION


-this is the ability to look in the face of a man and say he is having an affair

-So furqan is to know halal from haraam
-but firaasa is deeper than furqan
-because you can look in the face of a man and can tell he is having an affair
-It is the deep insight and forsight of the believer


-Some of you see a shaytan but think he is an angel
-but the deeper you are into faith, you become wiser and shrewd


Anas ibn Malik (RA) said: I entered the company of Uthman ibn Affaan (RA) while I was thinking about the beauty of a woman I saw in the street. Uthman (RA) then said: One of you enter my presence and the remnants of zinaa can be seen in his eyes. I then said: Did revelation come down after the departure of the Rasool (SAW)? Uthman said: But this is the deep insight, foresight and intuition of the believer. [Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, Madaarij as-Saalikeen (Vol. 2, pg. 455)]


Anas Ibn Malik narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "A believer is shrewd, sharp and careful." [Quda'ee (d. 454 H) in 'Musnad al-Shihab' (Vol. 1 pg. 107) No. 128]


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)]



21. ALLAH GAVE US THE ABILITY TO SMILE


-you are the only creation of Allah on earth who can smile
-this is why you are human not an animal
-the animals cant smile
-Allah said:


Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not." (An-Naml 27:18)


So he [Sulaiman (Solomon)] smiled, amused at her speech and said: "My Lord! Inspire and bestow upon me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favours which You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds that will please You, and admit me by Your Mercy among Your righteous slaves." (An-Naml 27:19)


22. THE ABILITY TO WRITE


- it was mentioned yesterday under Honour number 18

- Do not underestimate the blessing of writing;

- Allah said:

Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),    (Al-'Alaq 96:1)
Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).      (Al-'Alaq 96:2)
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,     (Al-'Alaq 96:3)
Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)],     (Al-'Alaq 96:4)
Has taught man that which he knew not.    (Al-'Alaq 96:5)



23: ALLAH HAS SUBJUGATED THE UNIVERSE FOR US


- Allah Said 31:20


See you not (O men) that Allah has subjected for you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and has completed and perfected His Graces upon you, (both) apparent (i.e Islamic Monotheism, and the lawful pleasures of this world, including health, good looks, etc.) and hidden [i.e. One's Faith in Allah (of Islamic Monotheism) knowledge, wisdom, guidance for doing righteous deeds, and also the pleasures and delights of the Hereafter in Paradise, etc.]? Yet of mankind is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or a Book giving light! (Luqman 31:20)


- Allah also said: 14:32-33


Allah is He Who has created the heavens and the earth and sends down water (rain) from the sky, and thereby brought forth fruits as provision for you; and He has made the ships to be of service to you, that they may sail through the sea by His Command; and He has made rivers (also) to be of service to you. (Ibrahim 14:32)

And He has made the sun and the moon, both constantly pursuing their courses, to be of service to you; and He has made the night and the day, to be of service to you. (Ibrahim 14:33)


- It is not just the sea that is of service to you;
- Also the rivers, people travel and earn their living by the rivers
- The night you use it to take rest, - the day you use it to earn your livelihood

- You use the stars to guide you at night
- you use the moon to know when Ramadhan starts and finishes
- without the sun life would not be sustainable on earth


24: ALLAH PUT RAHMAH (MERCY) IN YOUR HEART

- without Rahmah you are not behaving like a human being.
- Have you ever watched the National Geographic?
- The young lion over powers the older lion and takes over the pride of lions
- only a third of the job is done
- the second third is to kill the cubs he found in the pride
- he can't look after the cubs of another lion
- the third third of the mission;
- is to impregnate the lioness to have his own cubs


- When a man marries a woman with children;
- Does he kill the three children he found in the home?
- (There are some "step-fathers from hell" )

- The lion has no rahmah;
- The rahmah is for bani Adam
- You are bani Adam, so you don't kill your step children.

- There are many step-fathers;
- who perform their jobs better than the biological father
- because we have rahmah in our hearts
- another reason why he kills the cubs;
- the cubs may take revenge
- we are able to forgive, forget and over look


- Muhammad (saw) is the prophet of Rahmah.

- Allah said: 21:107


And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Anbiya 21:107)


"O Quraish, what do you think I will do to you?" They said, “You are a brother, the son of a noble brother.” He said: "Go your way, for you are free.” [al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (9/199) No. 18276, Fath ul-Bari Ibn Hajar (8/18) No. 4289, Seerah Ibn Hisham (2/412), al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah Ibn Kathir (3/570)]


- He asked the kufaar of Makkah;
- What do you expect I am going to do to you.?
- The kufaar of Makkah did many bad things to the Muslims
- When you are in a position of power;
- you are able to take revenge
- that is when the rahmah is appreciated


- Allah Said: 30:21


And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. (Ar-Rum 30:21)


- Allah put rahmah between husband and wife
- When there is no rahmah in the marriage
- you should leave that marriage


25: ALLAH PLACED LOVE IN THE HEARTS OF THE BELIEVERS FOR ONE ANOTHER


And He has united their (i.e. believers') hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allah has united them. Certainly He is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:63)


Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “By Him in Whose Hand is my life, you will not enter Paradise till you believe, and you will not believe till you love each other. Shall I not guide you to something which if you do, you will love each other? Give currency to salaam between yourselves.” [Sahih Muslim (1/74) No. 54, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/350) No. 5193, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/52) 2688, Sunan Ibn Majah (1/47) No. 68, Musnad Ahmad (2/477) No. 10180, al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari (980)]


On the authority of Ibn Masood (RA) the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Among the signs of the last days is that people will give salam to only those who they know." [Musnad Ahmad (1/405) No. 3848]


- in a country like UK everyone hates everyone else
- because no one loves Allah (swt)



- One of the signs of judgement day is tasleem al khaas

- you know that a man is a Muslim because of his beard, or thobe
- But you will never give him salam
- because you don't know him on a personal level

- Tasleem al khaas: is to give salams to only those you know.

One of the minor signs of the Day of Judgement is that people will only give salaam to the people that they know. [Ahmad]




26: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM BY ISLAM AND GUIDANCE


- Allah Said: 49:7-8


And know that, among you there is the Messenger of Allah (SAW). If he were to obey you (i.e. follow your opinions and desires) in much of the matter, you would surely be in trouble, but Allah has endeared the Faith to you and has beautified it in your hearts, and has made disbelief, wickedness and disobedience (to Allah and His Messenger SAW) hateful to you. These! They are the rightly guided ones, (Al-Hujurat 49:7)


(This is) a Grace from Allah and His Favour. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Al-Hujurat 49:8)

- For Allah to give you Islam and Eman;
- It is one of the ways for Allah to honour you


- Umar Ibn Khaatab said:


...We were once amongst the lowest of people, but Allaah gave us honour because of Islaam. As soon as we start to seek honour in avenues other than that in which Allaah has granted us honour, Allaah will then humiliate us." [Mustadrak al-Hakim (1/130) No. 207]


- Saddam Hussaain tried to get honour from ba'thism (Arab Socialism)
- This is why he was toppled and hanged on Eid day.

- Then you have Gaddafi:
- He was captured like a rat;
- after calling the freedom fighters rats


- Bashaar Al Asad will end up like Gaddafi and Saddam
- Because they tried to get honour from other than Islam


- Zainul Abideen of Tunisia tried to get honour from France;
- he was also toppled
- The world leader tries to get honour from secularism
- then he is toppled, and his plane is flying around in the sky;
- but no other leader wants to take him in - what a disgrace!


- Gaddafi funded Sarkozy's election campaign;
- trying to get love from a white man,
- you can't buy their love.

- The white man (kaafir) hates himself so much;
- that suicide is so high in his country

- The same man who Gaddafi funded;
- was the first to send planes to Libya to bomb Gaddafi

- The countries with the most suicide are all white countries
- Asad is trying to get honour from Russia and China;
- you are already disgraced because of your ideology


- Allah said:


...But honour, power and glory belong to Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and to the believers, but the hypocrites know not. (Al-Munafiqun 63:8)


- You can only get honour from Allah.
- Allah has 99 Names and Attributes;
- Two of them are:
- Al Mu'izz : المعز : The Giver of Honour
- Al Mudhill : المذل : The Giver of Dishonour

27: ALLAH HAS GIVEN YOU COMPANIONS OF YOUR OWN KIND

- Allah said:


And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. (Ar-Rum 30:21)


- Allah honoured Adam by giving him eve.
- Eve was created from Adam's rib

- Marriage is honour
- Homosexuality is a complete and utter disgrace.

- HADITH:

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/57) No. 1456, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/158) No. 4462, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/594) No. 2561, Musnad Ahmad (1/300) No. 2732]

- Marriage is honour
- Bestiality is utter humiliation

- The Prophet Said:

Narrated By Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet (SAW) said: "If anyone has sexual intercourse with an animal, kill him and kill it along with him." I (Ikrimah) said: I asked him (Ibn Abbas): 'What offence can be attributed to the animal?' He replied: 'I think he (the Prophet) disapproved of its flesh being eaten when such a thing had been done to it.' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/159) No. 4464, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/56) No. 1455, Musnad Ahmad (1/269) No. 2420]


- The best among you...


It was narrated that Sa’eed ibn Jubayr said: Ibn ‘Abbas said to me: “Have you gotten married?” I said: “No.” He said: “Get married, for the best of this ummah are the ones with the most wives.” [Sahih Bukhari (7/3) No. 5069]

- The prophet also said:

'The worst among you are your bachelors!' (from Abu Ya'la and Tabarani.)


28: ALLAH HAS GIVEN YOU DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AND DIFFERENT COLOURS

- Allah said:

And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colours. Verily, in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge. (Ar-Rum 30:22)


- It is exciting to live in a country where there are different people;
- different races, colours and cultures.
- it's more exciting to live in multi-cultural societies
- many European countries envy the UK;
- Because their society is not mixed, like the UK


29: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM WITH THE ARABIC LANGUAGE


- Allah said: 12:1-2

Alif-Lam-Ra. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. These are the Verses of the Clear Book (the Qur'an that makes clear the legal and illegal things, legal laws, a guidance and a blessing). (Yusuf 12:1)

Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an in order that you may understand. (Yusuf 12:2)


- Why was the Quran revealed in the Arabic language?
- It is not a "pigeon language" ;
- a language that has a lot of ambiguities.
- a "pigeon language" is a language that has a lot of ambiguities.

- English is a pigeon language;
- If we say: " When the cat jumped on the book it fell off. "
- What fell off?
- This sentence has ambiguities

- In Arabic the cat is feminine and the book is masculine;
- therefore it is impossible to have this ambiguity in the Arabic language.

- It is not an inferior language.

- When you enter the paradise:
- The language spoken to you will be Arabic

(It will be said to them) : Salamun (peace be on you), a Word from the Lord (Allah), Most Merciful. (Ya-Sin 36:58)


- Imam Shafi' and Ibn Taymiyyah said it was compulsory upon you to learn Arabic.


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)]


Ibn Taymiyyah said: “As for becoming accustomed to talking to one another in a language other than Arabic, which is the symbol of Islam and the language of the Qur’aan, so that this becomes a habit in the land, with one’s family and household members, with one’s friends, in the marketplace, when addressing government representatives or authority figures or when speaking to people of knowledge, undoubtedly this is makrooh (disliked), because it involves being like the non-Arabs, which is makrooh, as stated previously.

Hence when the early Muslims went to live in Syria and Egypt, where the people spoke Byzantine Greek, and in Iraq and Khurasaan, where the people spoke Farsi, and the Maghrib (North Africa) where the people spoke Berber, they taught the people of those countries to speak Arabic,
so that Arabic became the prevalent language in those lands, and all the people, Muslim and kaafir alike, spoke Arabic. Such was also the case in Khurasaan in the past, then they became lax with regard to the language and got used to speaking Farsi until it became prevalent and Arabic was forgotten by most of them. Undoubtedly this is makrooh.

The best way is to become accustomed to speaking Arabic so that the young people will learn it in their homes and schools, so that the symbol of Islam and its people will prevail. This will make it easier for the people of Islam to understand the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and the words of the Salaf, unlike a person who gets used to speaking one language, then wants to learn another, and finds it difficult.

Know that being used to using a language has a clear and strong effect on one’s thinking, behaviour and religious commitment. It also has an effect on making one resemble the early generations of this Ummah, the Sahaabah and Taabi’een. Being like them improves one’s thinking, religious commitment and behaviour.


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’aan and Sunnah, and they cannot be understood without knowing Arabic, then the means that is needed to fulfil the duty is also obligatory.


There are things which are obligatory on all individuals (fard ‘ayn), and others which are obligatory on the community or ummah (fard kifaayah, i.e., if some people fulfil them the rest are relieved of the obligation).

This is the meaning of the report narrated by Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah who said: ‘Eesa ibn Yoonus told us from Thawr from ‘Umar ibn Yazeed that ‘Umar wrote to Abu Moosa al-Ash’ari (may Allaah be pleased with him) and said: ‘learn the Sunnah and learn Arabic; learn the Qur’aan in Arabic for it is Arabic.’



According to another hadeeth narrated from ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him), he said: ‘Learn Arabic for it is part of your religion, and learn how the estate of the deceased should be divided (faraa’id) for these are part of your religion.’


This command of ‘Umar, to learn Arabic and Sharee’ah, combines the things that are needed, for religion involves understanding words and actions. Understanding Arabic is the way to understand the words of Islam, and understanding the Sunnah is the way to understand the actions of Islam…”

Last night we stopped at

29: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM WITH THE ARABIC LANGUAGE

- 30: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM BY GIVING YOU HALAL THINGS TO UTILIZE

- halal food, clothing, shelter, drinks, and halal spouses

- Allah said: 17:70

And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea, and have provided them with At-Taiyibāt (lawful good things), and have preferred them above many of those whom We have created with a marked preference. (Al-Isra 17:70)

31: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM WITH OFFSPRING
-This is a barakah

The Prophet (saws) said: Narrated By Ma'qil ibn Yasar: A man came to the Prophet (saws) and said: I have found a woman of rank and beauty, but she does not give birth to children. Should I marry her? He said: No. He came again to him, but he prohibited him. He came to him third time, and he (the Prophet) said: "Marry women who are loving and very prolific, for I shall outnumber the peoples by you." [Abu Dawud, Book 5, Hadith #2045]

The Prophet (saws) also said:  Abu Huraira (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: (1) A continuous charity, (2) knowledge by which people derive benefit, (3) pious son who prays for him." [Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari No. 38, Muslim (3/1255) No. 1631, Abu Dawud (3/117) No. 2880, al-Nasa'i (6/251) No. 3651, Tirmidhi (3/660) No. 1376, al-Darime (1/148) No. 559, Ahmad (2/372) No. 8831]

Allah Said: 3:14

Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the present world's life; but Allah has the excellent return (Paradise with flowing rivers, etc.) with Him. (Aali Imran 3:14)

All these things that are mentioned in this ayah are considered as barakah.
- for you to be able to produce children is a great blessing
- you are not allowed to take this blessing for granted
- your children will pray for you when you are inside the grave

32: ALLAH HAS BLESSED US WITH ISLAMIC SHARIAH

- without this it would be law of the jungle
- when you do not have Islamic Shariah in a country
- people will go crazy with their corrupt and evil desires
- it was designed to control the desires of men
- societies which do not govern with the Islamic Shariah;
- Make everything which is haram - halal
- Do not under-estimate the desires of men

Allah said:

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)

- You have seen in France;
- A man is allowed to date his daughter (date = sex)
- in Brazil they passed the same law
- In the UK a woman can marry a woman, and a man can marry a man.
- The U.S. has made bestiality legal

SENATE APPROVES BILL THAT LEGALIZES SODOMY AND BESTIALITY IN U.S. MILITARY :http://www.kavkazcenter.com/eng/content/2011/12/09/15488.shtml

- Animal Brothels are legal in Denmark.

ANIMAL BROTHELS LEGAL IN DENMARK:
http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2008/05/20/animal-brothels-legal-in-denmark/

- It is a great honour in your country if you have Shariah Law.
- There are many who would love to live under shariah;
- at least for one day before death

For you not to have Islamic Shariah is a great dishonour

- Democracy is a religion;
- it is hawa2 = evil and corrupt desires

Your God/Deity is Allah
- The deity worshipped in a democracy is hawa

- If you believe in democracy, Christianity, Judaism;
- we are going to make takfir on you.

Allah said: 18:26

..and He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." (Al-Kahf 18:26)

And Allah said: 42:21

Or have they partners with Allah (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion which Allah has not allowed. ..(Ash-Shura 42:21)

Shariah is deen, and deen is Shariah.

When the golden bowl of the king was found in the bag of Binyamin
- The deen of Ibrahim said when you steal from someone;
- the thief becomes the slave of the one he stole from

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]

The Saudi Salafis say;
- To wear the trousers below the ankle is a major issue-
- but to dismantle the shariah is a minor issue
- they say this because the shariah is not their deen

Allah said: 5:44

It was We who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance and light. By its standard have been judged the Jews, by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah's will, by the rabbis and the doctors of law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's book, and they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear me, and sell not my signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers (Al-Ma'idah 5:44)

You are not allowed to say "it is minor kufr".
- This is the ideology of the Salafis
- Their situation is so pathetic, we can use Bin Baaz to refute them
- When we debated with them in this room,
- we brought Bin Baaz fatwa
- they said they didn't take from Bin Baaz

Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light, by which the prophets who surrendered (unto Allah) judged the Jews, and the rabbis and the priests (judged) by such of Allah´s Scripture as they were bidden to observe, and thereunto were they witnesses. So fear not mankind, but fear Me. And My revelations for a little gain. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are disbelievers.  (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Pickthall]

The Saudi Salafis promote the ideology of "Kufr duna Kufr"
- This goes against the ijmaa of the ulema
- The hadith of "obey your leader even if he fights you"
- is not sahih hadith

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (RA) said: A man came to the Messenger of Allah (saws) and said: O Messenger of Allah, what do you think if a man comes wanting to take my property? He said: “Do not give him your property.” He said: What if he fights me? He said: “Fight him.” He said: What if he kills me? He said: “Then you will be a martyr.” He said: What if I kill him? He said: “He will be in Hell.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, pg. 124) No. 140]

They say Ibn Abaas said this statement during the caliphate of Ali.
- You are snookered;
- because in the time of Ali, the shariah was implemented
- the shariah was not dismantled.
- The shariah was not the subject.

http://millatibraheem.wordpress.com/2008/10/29/takhrij-of-athar-kufr-duna-kufr-of-ibn-abbas/

Ali was one of the four rightly guided caliphs
- therefore he did not dismantle the shariah

The subject was the fitnah of Ali and Muawiyah
- What took place at the battle of Sifeen

Shaikh is appalled that people who call themselves "Ahl Al Hadith"
- base their religion on a weak hadith
- Shaikh is appalled that Albaani wrote a book "Sifaat as-salatul Nabi"
- Saying that you should wag your finger in the tashahhud
- knowing that the prophet didn't do it.

People called from all over the world asking Fawzaan questions
- one of them was about the wagging of the finger.

Shaikh Fawzaan said it’s not Right to Move the Finger in Salah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1wgFj5KgrE

- He is one of the favourite shaikhs of the Saudi Salafis
- He replied that it was not allowed,
- He said the supporting hadith was a weak one.
- We don't see eye to eye with Fawzaan


We have 6 sacred things:

-your life, wealth, aql, honour, deen and lineage
-and only in the Islamic state are they safeguarded and protected
-therefore we kill murderer to protect your life
-stone the adulterer to protect the lineage
-kill the arm robber and cut the hand of the thief to protect your wealth
-we give 80 lashes to the slanderer to protect your honour

The beauty of Islamic sharia is that there is no oppression
-and that it doesn't put a burden more than you can bear

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)

In a hadith Qudsi, Allah said:

...“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]

Have you seen those (hypocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Tāghût (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitān (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray. (An-Nisa 4:60)

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)]

- You cannot go to the Kafir court houses for judgements.


33: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM WITH SUNAN AL FITRAH


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

Also istinja (washing your private parts after relieving yourself).

- Circumcision is fardh.
- No Muslim woman is allowed to marry a man who is not circumcised
- or to marry a person with bad bathroom etiquettes
- you cannot live with a person who does not have correct personal hygiene

Shaikh was in an African country (Botswana)
- they said a quarter of the country has AIDS
- also Swaziland and Namibia have the same problem
- In South Africa a thousand people die from AIDS every day.

AIDS is a silent killer, so there is no outcry
- The men in these countries are kaafirs,
- and not circumcised
- they are prone to catching the AIDS virus
- they are hypocrites because they say they follow Jesus,

Why then are they not circumcised?
- Jesus was circumcised.
- Muslims, Christians and Jews;
- Who follow the Abrahamic faith should be circumcised
- Jews are all circumcised
- but Christians are not
- The British gave Shaikh 9 years in prison for his frankness.
- Then they followed him on his African tour.
- His frankness didn't change

You shave the pubic hair, clip your nails, grow the beard, wash your private parts, brush your teeth, and the istinja, the circumcision

34: ALLAH HAS HONOURED BANI ADAM WITH THE ISLAMIC HYGIENE.

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "If it was not for the fact that I might have been overburdening my community - or the people - I would have ordered them to use the siwak for every prayer." [al-Bukhari (887) and Muslim (252)]

On the authority of Abu Malik al-Harith bin al-Harith al-Asharee (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Purity is half of iman (faith). ‘al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah)’ fills the scales, and ‘subhan-Allah (how far is Allah from every imperfection) and ‘al-hamdulillah (praise be to Allah)’ fill that which is between heaven and earth. And the salah (prayer) is a light, and charity is a proof, and patience is illumination, and the Qur’an is a proof either for you or against you. Every person starts his day as a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or causing its ruin." [Sahih Muslim (1/203) No. 223]

- Bad breath is a reason for divorce in Islam.
- To abstain from intercourse when your wife is menstruating
- If you are bleeding non-stop;
- You will be asked "What is your cycle".
- Every woman should know her cycle
- If your cycle is 7 days, and you bleed for 10-12 days;
- there are two types of blood, menstrual and non-menstrual.
- The blood of the cycle has an odour,
- when the odour has gone it is istihaada.

- The topic of menstruation is very important
- When you start to menstruate it is fardh on you to pray.

35: ALLAH WILL SPEAK TO US ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT AND CALL US BY OUR NAMES.

http://authentictauheed.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/sharh-of-bulugh-al-maraam-rules-of_6.html

- The Prophet (saws) said to give children good names:

Narrated By Abu Darda': The Prophet (saws) said: "On the Day of Resurrection you will be called by your names and by your father's names, so give yourselves good names." [Sunan Abu Dawood (4/287) No. 4948, Sunan al-Darime (2/380) No. 2694, Musnad Ahmad (5/194) No. 21739 (isnaad daeef)]

Ibn ‘Umar (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “The most beloved of your names to Allah are ‘Abdullah and ‘Abdur-Rahman.” [Sahih Muslim (3/1682) No. 2132, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/133) No. 2834, Sunan Abu Dawood (4/287) No. 4949, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/672) No. 3728, Sunan al-Darime (2/380) No. 2695, Musnad Ahmad (2/24) No. 4774]

- Rights of the children. 1, Be a legitimate child, 2, have a good name, 3, be circumcised.

- The Prophet (pbuh) said: 3 men Allah will not look at...

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws), said, "There are three people that Allah will not speak to on the Day of Rising nor purify nor look at and they will have a painful punishment: an old adulterer, a lying ruler and a poor person who is arrogant." [Sahih Muslim (1/102) No. 107, Musnad Ahmad (2/480) No. 10232]

- Allah will not even look at these 3 men,
- much less to speak to them.
- This is evidence that this is an honour to Bani Adam.

36: MAN WILL BE THE FIRST TO ENTER PARADISE ON JUDGEMENT DAY.
- Muhammad will be the first to enter.

On the authority of Anas Ibn Malik (RA) the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “I will come to the gate of Paradise on the Day of Resurrection and ask for it to be opened. The gatekeeper will ask, ‘Who are you?’ I will say: ‘Muhammad.’ He will say, ‘I was commanded not to open it for anyone before you.’” [Sahih Muslim (1/188) No. 197]

- The last prophet to enter paradise will be the prophet Sulayman.
- Adam was in Heaven not paradise.
- No one is allowed to enter paradise before Muhammad.

Their reward with their Lord is 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of Eternity), underneath which rivers flow, they will abide therein forever, Allah Well-Pleased with them, and they with Him. That is for him who fears his Lord. (Al-Baiyinah 98:8)

There is a difference between all these things;
- Destiny can be changed,
- But pre-destination cannot.

Salman (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (saws) said, ‘Nothing averts the decree except supplication and nothing but piety prolongs life.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/448) No. 2139, Musnad Ahmad (5/280) No. 22466]

- Istighfar is for minor sins, but Tawbah is for major sins.
- A messenger has a shariah, and a book.
- The prophet has no shariah, he has to follow the shariah he found.
- Yusuf and his father Jacob were prophets,
- Ibrahim was the messenger that they followed.

37: ALLAH WILL SHOW US HIS FACE ON JUDGEMENT DAY WHEN WE ENTER THE PARADISE

Allah Said:

Some faces that Day shall be Nādirah (shining and radiant). (Al-Qiyamah 75:22)

Looking at their Lord (Allah); (Al-Qiyamah 75:23)

- The prophet (pbuh) said:

Suhayb narrated the Prophet (saws) said: "When the people of Paradise enter the Paradise, Allah will say, 'Do you want me to give you anything extra.' They will say, 'Haven't you whitened our faces Haven't you entered us into Paradise and saved us from the Fire.' Then He will remove the veil and they will not be given anything more beloved to them than looking at their Lord, and that will be the extra (Ziyadah). [Sahih Muslim (1/163) No. 181]

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The people said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we see our Lord on the Day of Resurrection?" He replied, "Do you have any doubt in seeing the full moon on a clear (not cloudy) night?" They replied, "No, O Allah's Apostle!" He said, "Do you have any doubt in seeing the sun when there are no clouds?" They replied in the negative. He said, "You will see Allah (your Lord) in the same way.... [al-Bukhari (770) and Muslim (352)]

Allah Said:

There they will have all that they desire, and We have more (for them, i.e. a glance at the All-Mighty, All-Majestic). (Qaf 50:35)

- Musa asked to see Allah, and Allah Said that he would not be able to see Him.

Which (that Book with Allah) none can touch but the purified (i.e. the angels). (Al-Waqi'ah 56:79)

Be careful of taking the ayah of the context.
- The translator said ( the angels ) in brackets.
- Because he knows that people take it out of context.

They say it means menstruating women.
- They take it out of context because they didn't read the previous ayah.
- You should read from 77-99.

That (this) is indeed an honourable recital (the Noble Qur’an). (Al-Waqi'ah 56:77)In a Book well-guarded (with Allah in the heaven i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfûz). (Al-Waqi'ah 56:78)Which (that Book with Allah) none can touch but the purified (i.e. the angels). (Al-Waqi'ah 56:79)

Then you will know that the ayah is talking about the lawh al mahfuz
- It is not talking about the Quran.
- And it is not talking about menstruating women.

Someone asked Shaikh Muqbil;
- about menstruating women touching the Quran
- He said they could, because all the hadith are weak.

- They use one hadith which is sahih,
- That the prophet said "no one is allowed to touch the Quran except the pure"
- in his letter to Yemen.
- He meant the Jews and Christians could not touch the Quran.

- Allah revealed the ayah because;
- The kuffaar in Makkah said that the shaytan was revealing the Quran to Muhammad
