WINNING A SOUL FOR ALLAH WITH SINCERITY - NOTES & AUDIO


By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal Evening Dars: May 15, 2013


Winning a Soul for Allah (ta'ala) with Sincerity  

By Shaykh Abdullah Faisal

(Evening dars) Pal-Talk (May 15, 2013)

[Notes by:  “AT-10” 
Edit by: “AT-10” and “Z”]


This is a new topic in the room.
- It was delivered in Nigeria 2008 on Shaikh's African Tour.

In order for us to win a soul for Allah we need sincerity.
-Hypocrisy is the opposite of sincerity

HYPOCRISY (examples)
- The kuffaar invaded Afghanistan;
- they said they invaded to liberate and free the people.
- these same kuffaar ban the hijab in France,
- the niqaab in Belgium,
- the minarets in Switzerland,
- The Adhaan in the UK, and all Europe.
- halal meat in Switzerland

You (the kuffaar) KILL FREEDOM AT HOME!
- what kind of freedom are you bringing,
- this is a clear example of hypocrisy.

Sincerity is the opposite of hypocrisy.
- Sincerity is when your deeds and speech do not contradict each other.

The Prophet Said: You will be shown your deeds on Judgement Day.

Abu Musa al-Ash’ari (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: "O people, save yourselves from this shirk (ash-Shirk al-Khafi) for it is more inconspicuous than the creeping of ant." So someone, whom Allah willed to say, said: 'How do we save ourselves from it while it is more inconspicuous than the creeping of ant ya Rasool Allah?' Prophet (SAW) said: “Say: Allahumma inni audhubika minal nushrika bika shayaan na'alamuhu, wa nastaghfiruka lima la na'alam (O Allah we take Your refuge from doing shirk with You knowingly, and ask for Your forgiveness for doing it unknowingly)" [Musnad Ahmed (4/403) No. 19622 and Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaibah (6/70) No. 29547]

Abu Hurayra said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say, 'The first of people to be judged on the Day of Rising will be a man who was martyred. He will be brought and will be informed of the blessings he had and will acknowledge them. Allah will say, "What did you do with them?" He will say, "I fought for You until I was martyred." Allah will say, "You lie. Rather you fought so it would be said, 'A bold man!' And so it was said." Then the command will be given and he will be dragged on his face until he is thrown into the Fire. There will also be a man who studied knowledge and taught it and recited the Qur'an. He will be brought and informed of his blessings which he will acknowledge. Allah will say, "What did you do with them?" He will say, "I studied knowledge and taught it and I recited the Qur'an for You." He will say, "You lie. Rather you studied so that it would be said, 'A scholar!' and you recited so that it would be said, 'He is a reciter!' And so it was said." Then the c Then the command will be given and he will be dragged on his face until he is thrown into the Fire. There will also be a man to whom Allah gave a lot of wealth and all sorts of property. He will be brought and informed of his blessings which he will acknowledge. Allah will say, "What did you do with them?" He will say, "There was no path in which You like spending to be done but that I spent in it for You." He will say, "You lie. Rather you did it so that it would be said, 'He is generous.' and so it was said." Then the command will be given and he will be dragged on his face until he is thrown into the Fire.'" [Muslim]

The companions (r.a) had the ikhlaas
- because of this they were successful;
- they are called the unique Quranic generation.

Allah Said: 6:162

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Verily, my Salah (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-An'am 6:162)

"He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am the first of the Muslims." (Al-An'am 6:163)

Let us turn the pages of Islamic History; to see how the companions were.
- The cousin of the prophet, Ali was fighting on the battle field.
- Ali over powered a Mushrik, to chop off his head; the mushrik spat in his face,
- Ali refused to kill the mushrik, who spat in his face,
- he said: ‘He refused to kill him for his own anger, if I was to kill him it would be for the sake of Allah”

"Know, O Amr, I only kill in the way of Allah and not for any private motive. Since you spat in my face, my killing you now may be from a desire for personal vengeance. So I spare your life. Rise and return to your people!" The Giant rose. But there was no question of his returning to his people a loser. He would live a victor, or not at all. Intending to make one last attempt at victory, he picked up his sword and rushed at Ali. Perhaps he would catch Ali unaware. Ali had just enough time to pick up his sword and shield and prepare for the fresh assault. The blow which the Giant now delivered in furious desperation was the most savage blow of the encounter. His sword shattered Ali's shield, but in doing so lost its force and impetus, and could then do no more than inflict a shallow cut on Ali's temple. The wound was too slight to worry Ali. Before the Giant could raise his sword again, the Zulfiqar flashed in the sunlight, and its tip slashed open the Giant's throat. The blood of the Giant gushed forth like a fountain. For a moment the Giant stood motionless. Then his body began to sway as if he was drunk. And then he fell on his face with a crash and lay still. The earth did not shake with the impact of that colossal body. The earth is too big. But the hill of Sil'a shook with the cry of Allah-o-Akbar that thundered from 2,000 Muslim throats. The triumphant cry echoed through the length and breadth of the valley before it faded away into the stillness of the desert.  [Source: Taken from "The Sword of Allah: Khalid bin Al-Waleed: His Life and Campaigns." by Lieutenant-General A.I. Akram, Rawalpindi, Pakistan]

This is the peak of sincerity!

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Verily, my Salah (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-An'am 6:162)

He didn't want to kill the kaafir for a personal motive;
- he wanted to kill the kaafir for the sake of Allah.

Another example:
- When the prophet left to perform Umrah at Makkah.
- The kuffaar refused him entry.
- The prophet wanted to send someone from Quraysh
- He wanted to send Umar Ibn Al-Khattab.
- Umar excused himself, saying that his clan wasn't a powerful clan.
- And because they don't like me, and I don't like them.
- So Umar said:  “Choose Uthman, his clan is powerful.”

Look at the sincerity of Umar,
- There are many Muslims, who are not qualified for a job,
- yet they insist on doing the job, because they are in it for the fame.

Allah said: 98:5

And they were commanded not, but that they should worship Allah, and worship none but Him Alone (abstaining from ascribing partners to Him), and perform As-Salah (Iqāmat-as-Salah) and give Zakāt: and that is the right religion. (Al-Baiyinah 98:5)

Be sincere to Allah s.w.t.
- do not worship besides Allah, perform salah, and pay zakah.

The munafiq is sincere only when he is in a desperate situation,
- when his back is against the wall.
- When he is not in a desperate situation he dumps Allah.

Allah Said:

And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allah, making their Faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others. (Al-'Ankabut 29:65)

They became sincere to Allah, because they were in a desperate situation.

- Allah Said:

And when harm touches you upon the sea, those that you call upon besides Him vanish from you except Him (Allah Alone). But when He brings you safely to land, you turn away (from Him). And man is ever ungrateful. (Al-Isra 17:67)

When they were no longer in a desperate situation,
- they subscribe partners to Allah, they forgot about Allah.

Allah Said:  And man is ever ungrateful.

Allah Said: Man is ungrateful to his Lord and a witness to his own ungratefulness.
- The kuffaar wrote a book, "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins
- and became celebrity by saying there is no God, and men evolved from monkeys.


You are a witness to your own ungratefulness.

Allah Said: 51:56

And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone). (Adh-Dhariyat 51:56)

Let us examine this ayah
- why did Allah s.w.t. mention the Jinn in the ayah first then humans second?
- Because the jinn were on earth before us
- According to Ibn Kathir, it was two thousand years before us.

Another example:

The Prophet (saws) said: He would give the flag to a man who loves Allah s.w.t. and loves the Rasool.
- Even though Ali had an eye sickness, it didn't stop him marching to the battlefield.

Narrated By Sahl: On the day (of the battle) of Khaibar the Prophet said, "Tomorrow I will give the flag to somebody who will be given victory (by Allah) and who loves Allah and His Apostle and is loved by Allah and His Apostle." So, the people wondered all that night as to who would receive the flag and in the morning everyone hoped that he would be that person. Allah's Apostle asked, "Where is 'Ali?" He was told that 'Ali was suffering from eye-trouble, so he applied saliva to his eyes and invoked Allah to cure him. He at once got cured as if he had no ailment. The Prophet gave him the flag. 'Ali said, "Should I fight them till they become like us (i.e. Muslim)?" The Prophet said, "Go to them patiently and calmly till you enter the land. Then, invite them to Islam, and inform them what is enjoined upon them, for, by Allah, if Allah gives guidance to somebody through you, it is better for you than possessing red camels." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 52, Hadith #253]

Jaabir ibn Abdullah
-was marching to the battle field with the Prophet (pbuh)
-His camel was very old,
- Jaabir told the prophet that he didn't think the camel would make it.

The Prophet (saws) hit his camel, the camel became young immediately.

Narrated By Jabir bin 'Abdullah: I was accompanying the Prophet on a journey and was riding a slow camel that was lagging behind the others. The Prophet passed by me and asked, "Who is this?" I replied, "Jabir bin 'Abdullah." He asked, "What is the matter, (why are you late)?" I replied, "I am riding a slow camel." He asked, "Do you have a stick?" I replied in the affirmative. He said, "Give it to me." When I gave it to him, he beat the camel and rebuked it. Then that camel surpassed the others thenceforth. The Prophet said, "Sell it to me." I replied, "It is (a gift) for you, O Allah's Apostle." He said, "Sell it to me. I have bought it for four Dinars (gold pieces) and you can keep on riding it till Medina." When we approached Medina, I started going (towards my house). The Prophet said, "Where are you going?" I Sad, "I have married a widow." He said, "Why have you not married a virgin to fondle with each other?" I said, "My father died and left daughters, so I decided to marry a widow (an experienced woman) (to look after them)." He said, "Well done." … (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 38, Number 504)

The camel was able to gallop, and overtake all the other camels.
- this is one of the miracles of the prophet.
- this camel lived in the caliphate of Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman;
- It participated in many battles.

Uthman put the camel in the baytul maal of the Muslims,
- we do not know what happened to it after that.

Narrated By Jabir bin 'Abdullah: I was accompanying the Prophet on a journey and was riding a slow camel that was lagging behind the others. The Prophet passed by me and asked, "Who is this?" I replied, "Jabir bin 'Abdullah." He asked, "What is the matter, (why are you late)?" I replied, "I am riding a slow camel." He asked, "Do you have a stick?" I replied in the affirmative. He said, "Give it to me." When I gave it to him, he beat the camel and rebuked it. Then that camel surpassed the others thenceforth. The Prophet said, "Sell it to me." I replied, "It is (a gift) for you, O Allah's Apostle." He said, "Sell it to me. I have bought it for four Dinars (gold pieces) and you can keep on riding it till Medina." When we approached Medina, I started going (towards my house). The Prophet said, "Where are you going?" I Sad, "I have married a widow." He said, "Why have you not married a virgin to fondle with each other?" I said, "My father died and left daughters, so I decided to marry a widow (an experienced woman) (to look after them)." He said, "Well done." When we reached Medina, Allah's Apostle said, "O Bilal, pay him (the price of the camel) and give him extra money." Bilal gave me four Dinars and one Qirat extra. (A sub-narrator said): Jabir added, "The extra Qirat of Allah's Apostle never parted from me." The Qirat was always in Jabir bin 'Abdullah's purse. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 3, Book 38, Hadith #504]

The Prophet (saws) asked to buy the camel.
- You are allowed to buy a property, a car.
- The owner is allowed to say that he will give you the car when he returns home.
- it is selling a property and putting a condition on the sale.
- So Jaabir put this condition on the sale. 
- the Prophet (pbuh) told Jabir to keep the camel and keep the money he gave him for the camel.
- Look at the kindness of the Prophet (pbuh).

Shaykh’s opinion as to why the Rasool (saws) let him keep the money:
-because Jabir’s father was killed accidentally @ the Battle of Uhud
- The companions killed their own companions accidentally.
- Hudhaifah cried and asked for forgiveness for those who killed his father by accident.
- Maybe this is why the prophet told Jabir to keep the camel and keep the money
- because he felt sorry for Jabir after the death of his father.
- This story proves the sincerity of Jabir;
- he didn't think the camel would make it in the battle, but he still marched forth
- and put his trust in Allah.
- Jabir didn't know that the prophet would perform a miracle on the camel.
- It also proves the love of the prophet for his companions.

- they also had this conversation:

 Did you get married, O Jabir?” I replied, “Yes.” He asked, “Is she a virgin or a matron?” I replied, “She is a matron.” He said, “Why didn’t you marry a virgin girl so that you might play with her and she with you (or, you might make her laugh and she make you laugh)?” I said, “My father died, leaving seven or nine girls (orphans) and I did not like to bring a young girl like them, so I married a woman who can look after them.”  He said, “May Allah bestow His Blessing on you.” [Vol 8, Book 75, No 396 : Sahih Bukhari]

Abdullah ibn Umm Maktoom. ( The blind sahaba )
- The Shia say that the prophet didn't frown,
- it was Abu Jahl that frowned.
- They use an ayah to refute us,

And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are on an exalted standard of character. (Al-Qalam 68:4)

- the shia ask how Allah could contradict himself.
- Abdullah ibn Umm Maktoom was exempt from Jihad.
- because he was blind but he went to jihad anyway and his job was to carry the flag for the ummah

Allah Said: 48:17

No blame or sin is there upon the blind, nor is there blame or sin upon the lame, nor is there blame or sin upon the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW), He will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers flow (Paradise); and whosoever turns back, He will punish him with a painful torment. (Al-Fath 48:17)

In spite of this, he went for Jihad.
- He used to carry the flag for the Muslims.

If the sahabas should return today;
- seeing how the Muslims have become weak, 
- not only shunning the battle field,
- the sahabas would think there are no Muslims left.

The Muslims have become so hypocritical;
- they put these conditions on jihad, such as
- “No Jihad without a Caliph”

Ain Jaloot 1260 C.E
- When the Muslims fought the Tatars and won,
- they didn't have a caliph.
- because Mus’tasim, the caliph was killed

1258 C.E (do not write 1258 AD)
-AD means = in the year of our Lord
-so writing this is shirk

- Ibn Taymiyah participated in many battles, leading battles against the Tatars

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)

- The blind Sahaba died as a shaheed.


Khalid Ibn Waleed:

- The Story of Khalid Ibn Waleed is another story that exemplifies Sincerity
- When Umar became the caliph, he sacked Khalid
- He gave his job to Ibn Ubaidah Al Jarrah.
- The Shia put a spin on the incident.
- they said Khalid killed a man and had sex with his wife. (the man's wife)
- Don't read their history, their books

- The real incident:
- They asked Umar how he could sack Khalid;
- Umar said: I fear for Khalid, because the Muslims might idolize him.
- The Muslims would say:
- If Khalid is in charge, it is impossible for us to lose.

- He feared that the Muslims might start to commit shirk.
- Umar was afraid of shirk.

- The bayyah, under the tree:
- the tree was mentioned in the Quran,
- so people used to go and visit the tree.
- When Umar found out, he chopped the tree down.
- he was afraid people might worship the tree.

Indeed, Allah was pleased with the believers when they gave their Bai'ā (pledge) to you (O Muhammad SAW) under the tree, He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down As-Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) upon them, and He rewarded them with a near victory, (Al-Fath 48:18)

Umar was terrified of people committing shirk
- Likewise, when he became the caliph,
- Khalid was the army general for the Muslims.

When Abu Bakr was caliph, he sent Sharahbeel and Ikrimah to fight Musaylimah,
- they lost, so Abu Bakr sent Khalid bin Waleed
- Khalid inflicted on Musaylimah a humiliating defeat.
- When Umar became the caliph, he fired Khalid
- He sent him a letter,
- he gave the letter to Abu Ubaidah Al Jarrah.

After Khalid was sacked he fought with the same zeal and enthusiasm.
- his zeal did not diminish, even after Umar gave him the sack.
- The Muslims were very surprised.
- they asked him how he could still fight with such zeal, after Umar took away your job.?

He replied: "I conquered Syria for the sake of Allah, not for the sake of Umar."

Some of the Muslims of today;
- if they are a part of an organisation and they get sacked,
- they stop giving dawah,
- if they are not in the lime-light, they will never give dawah
- it's all about the fame.
- you are living in darul harb, where it's all "me, me, me myself and I"...

- The scholars have to be very careful,
- The prophet said: Any man who seeks knowledge... to show off, or dispute...

“Whoever seeks knowledge that should be sought seeking the Face of Allah, but he only seeks it for the sake of some worldly gain, he will not smell the fragrance of Paradise on the Day of Resurrection." (Hasan) [The Book of Knowledge: Sunan Abu Dawud]

There are 3 types of scholars;
- the sinful, the wicked, and the sincere;

- The sinful scholar - he has a girlfriend, or shaves his beard, or he drinks..
- the wicked scholar - he puts a spin on the Quran or hadith to change Islam.
- The sincere scholar, - the one who sought knowledge only to guide the Ummah on the Sirat al-Mustaqeem

Another example:
- The Muslims went to Indonesia as traders;
- they didn't cheat the people.
- traders normally cheat the people.
- The prophet said:

The people of Indonesia were Buddhists and Hindus before the Muslims came;
- they said that all the traders cheat us, "you the Muslims are the only people who did not lie and cheat"
- therefore your religion must be the right religion.
- Indonesia has 230 million Muslims

Yazid ibn Yabnus said, "We went to 'A'isha and said, 'Umm al-Mu'minin, what was the character of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), like?' She replied, 'His character was the Qur'an. Can you recite the sura entitled "The Believers"?' She said, 'Recite: "It is the believers who are successful: those who are humble in their prayer; those who turn away from worthless talk; those who actively pay zakat; those who guard their private parts." (23:1-5)' She said, 'That was the character of the Messenger of Allah (SAW).'" [al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari, No. 308]

It was not conquered by the sword,
- they conquered Indonesia with sincerity

It is called " Winning a Soul for the Sake of Allah, by Sincerity".

- You win a soul for the sake of Allah;
- by saying "I do not know" - when asked a question.

Al-Haytham bin Jamil said: "I heard Malik bin Anas being asked forty eight questions, to thirty-two of which he replied: ‘I do not know.’ [Tarikh al-Abi Ziraa al-Dimashqi, Vol.1, pg. 49, no. 995]

Shaikh went to Nigeria in 2000 for a conference.
- Someone asked shaikh a question about salatul fatih
- A goofi soofi innovation: they say if you recite this, you don't have to pray any more.

- It is not heard of in Saudi Arabia; it is a Goofi Soofi innovation.
- When they were told that this "salatul fatih" was a biddah, there was an uproar.

Allah Said:

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "(But) the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are Al­ Fawāhish (great evil sins, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse, etc.) whether committed openly or secretly, sins (of all kinds), unrighteous oppression, joining partners (in worship) with Allah for which He has given no authority, and saying things about Allah of which you have no knowledge." (Al-A'raf 7:33)

To be sincere, when you are asked an question;
- you should say "I do not know"

The man whose head was cracked,
- he had a wet dream,
- he asked if he could do tayammum,
- they told him that he had to do ghusl,

The Prophet (saws) said:

Narrated By Jabir: 'We set out on a journey. One of our people was hurt by a stone that injured his head. He then had a wet dream. He asked his fellow travelers: Do you find concession for me to perform tayammum? They said: We do not find any concession for you while you can use water. He took a bath and died. When we came to the Prophet (SAW), the incident was reported to him. He said: "They killed him, may Allah kill them! Could they not ask when they did not know? The cure of ignorance is inquiry. It was enough for him to perform tayammum and to pour some drops of water or to bind a bandage over the wound (the narrator Musa was doubtful); then he should have wiped over it and washed the rest of his body."' [Sunan Abu Dawood (1/93) No. 336, Sunan al-Daraqutni (1/349) No. 729, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (1/347) No. 1075]

They did not know that tayammum replaces ghusl if you are sick.

To win a soul for Allah, you need sabr.

Ibn Rasheed said: It is as if the author is stating that tayammum is not prescribed if there is no dust, and that was after tayammum had been prescribed. It is as if he is saying that their ruling concerning the lack of the means of purification – which was water only – was the same as our ruling on cases when neither of the two means of purification, water and dust, is available. Hence we know that this hadeeth is suited to the heading, even though the hadeeth does not say that they had no dust, rather it says that they had no water. This indicates that prayer is obligatory for the one who has neither of the two means of purification, because the hadeeth shows that they prayed believing that it was obligatory to do so. If praying in such circumstances were not allowed, then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would have told them off for doing so. This is the view of al-Shaafa’i, Ahmad, the majority of muhadditheen and most of the companions of Maalik. Fath al-Baari, 1/440.

Abu Hurayrah's mother hated the prophet.
- He was patient with his mother until she took shahadah.
- Abu Hurayrah went to the prophet after hearing his mother insult the prophet,
- he was crying, the prophet made dua for her,
When Abu Hurayrah returned home, 
- he found his mother making ghusl, and she took her shahadah. 
- That same woman who insulted the prophet.

Allah said:

And seek help in patience and As-Salah (the prayer) and truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for Al-Khāshi'ûn [i.e. the true believers in Allah - those who obey Allah with full submission, fear much from His Punishment, and believe in His Promise (Paradise, etc.) and in His Warnings (Hell, etc.)]. (Al-Baqarah 2:45)

YOU NEED TO IMPART THE CRUCIAL KNOWLEDGE AND DON’T HIDE IT FROM THE PEOPLE:

The Prophet said:

Abu Hurairah (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "He who is asked about knowledge (of religion) and conceals it, will be bridled with a bridle of fire on the Day of Resurrection." [Sunan Abu Dawud (3/321) No. 3658, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/29) No. 2649, Sunan Ibn Majah (1/178) No. 266, Musnad Ahmad (2/263) No. 7561]

Umar ibn al-Khattab said during his khutba: "Make an analysis of your own selves before you are analysed and weigh yourself worth before you are weighed." [Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (7/96) No. 34459]

When shaikh went to UK in 1992,
- every topic he spoke on, they said they had never heard the topics,
- democracy, al walaa wal baraa, kufr bit taghoot

The Muslims started to invite Shaikh to their homes for meals.
- When he looked at their libraries, they saw they had Tablighi nisab.
- How can you learn fiqhul waqi , kufr in perspective, etc, from Tablighi nisab

IT IS HARAAM TO HIDE KNOWLEDGE

Allah Said: 2:159-160

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent down, after We have made it clear for the people in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers. (Al-Baqarah 2:159)

Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed). These, I will accept their repentance. And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:160)

Another topic they never heard about was "kufr bit-taghoot"
- This is root Islamic Education.

- nobody split the shahada for them, and told them;
- half of the Shahada is to reject the taghoot and the second half is to believe in Allah

Human beings have the power to curse you.
- The prophet (saws) said: Fear the dua of the oppressed:

Narrated By Ibn Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu'adh to Yemen and said, "Fear the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allah." [al-Bukhari (1496) and Muslim (19)]

- Can you imagine you marry a Muslim woman, 
- and you consummated the marriage and didn't give her the dowry.
- and then she cries to Allah, and makes dua,
- you are finished!...

We are not Christians, we do not think we have to pray to Jesus to take it to our Lord,
- We are Muslims we pray directly to Allah.

Allah Said:
- The scholars use this ayah to prove that the taubah of a shaikh has to be made publicly.

Except those who repent and do righteous deeds, and openly declare (the truth which they concealed). These, I will accept their repentance. And I am the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:160)

- if Shaikh came to Paltalk and lied
- telling us ‘there is no punishment in the grave’
- his taubah must be done publicly because the lie was made publicly.
- if you are sincere and you publicly make taubah,
- you will win a soul for Allah, by way of sincerity,
- the Muslims will be impressed by your sincerity.
