NOTES typed by Aariyatullah, O_I and AT3
Edited and Formatted by AT38 and AT7


The Qur'an has the answer to everything
-as Allah (swt) stated in 6:38

...We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)

-since Allah (swt) told us that nothing was missed in this Book
-this is the answer to every problem


-the ayat you should contemplate or meditate upon is 29:2-3

Alif¬ Lam¬ Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings.] (Al-'Ankabut 29:1)

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

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

Do they not then think deeply in the Qur'an, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)? (Muhammad 47:24)

...Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Abu Bakr went out while Umar bin Al-Khattab was talking to the people. Abu Bakr said, "Sit down, O 'Umar!" But 'Umar refused to sit down. So the people came to Abu Bakr and left Umar. Abu Bakr said, "To proceed, if anyone amongst you used to worship Muhammad , then Muhammad is dead, but if (anyone of) you used to worship Allah, then Allah is Alive and shall never die. Allah said: "Muhammad is no more than an Apostle, and indeed (many) apostles have passed away before him...(till the end of the Verse)... Allah will reward to those who are thankful." (3.144) By Allah, it was as if the people never knew that Allah had revealed this Verse before till Abu Bakr recited it and all the people received it from him, and I heard everybody reciting it (then). [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59, Hadith #733]

If you cannot find an Ayat to calm a person down
-then you are not spiritual Doctor
-a Sheikh is like a Doctor
-he cures people of their spiritual deficiencies by giving them guidance
-from Quran and Sunnah

Muhammad (SAW) is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah, and Allah will give reward to those who are grateful. (Aali Imran 3:144)

...We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)


You think life is difficult and you cannot carry on
-surah 94:5-6 is your answer
-Allah (swt) have promised ease after hardship

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope... (Al-Baqarah 2:286)

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

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

-why is it that Allah repeated Himself twice?
-because after every difficulty comes 2 ease


Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practice it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture [the Tawrat (Torah)]! Have you then no sense? (Al-Baqarah 2:44)

You cannot do Haram because your enemies will use it against you
-you cannot sleep with girls, do drugs or drink alcohol
-the Prophet (PBUH) was the walking Quran

Whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth glorifies Allah. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (As-Saff 61:1)

O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? (As-Saff 61:2)
Most hateful it is with Allah that you say that which you do not do. (As-Saff 61:3)

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]

-the best way to give da’wah is through your character


And He gave you of all that you asked for, and if you count the Blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them. Verily! Man is indeed an extreme wrong-doer, - a disbeliever (an extreme ingrate, denies Allah's Blessings by disbelief, and by worshipping others besides Allah, and by disobeying Allah and His Prophet Muhammad SAW). (Ibrahim 14:34)

-you cannot count the blessings of Allah (swt)

Verily! Man (disbeliever) is ungrateful to his Lord; (Al-'Adiyat 100:6)

And to that fact he bears witness (by his deeds); (Al-'Adiyat 100:7)

And verily, he is violent in the love of wealth. (Al-'Adiyat 100:8)

-you can’t have an attitude of ‘the end justifies the means’
-a man shouldn’t be worried about how he obtains his wealth
-and then seek haram means of earning them
-because the rizq has already been predestined
-and he will get all that he should before he dies


The Quran is a (Shifaa) medicine

Say: "O 'Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Az-Zumar 39:53)

-this verse gives hope to the sinners
-you should not consider yourself a kaafir
-or too sinful to be forgiven by Allah (swt) like the Khawarij do
-because Allah (swt) told you not to give up from His Mercy in 39:53

...Then Umar asked them: "Which part of the Quran gives the most hope?" Ibn Masood replied: "Say O My servants who have wronged themselves by committing sins do not give up from the mercy of Allah. (Surah 39:53)." Umar then asked them: "Is Abdullah ibn Masood with you?" The people in the caravan said: "By Allah yes."' [Majmua Takhreej al-Din al-Maqdisi (pg. 7) No. 6]

-Allah forgives all Sins
-even Shirk is forgivable,
-as long as you make your tawbah before you die
-if you die in a state of Shirk, there is no forgiveness for you

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

-the most important part in this ayat is "To Whom He Pleases"


...They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:67)

People have 100 different types of sicknesses
-how can you forget Allah? This is pathetic
-contemplate on 9:67, for if Allah (swt) ignores you
-who else can you turn to apart from Him?

And whosoever turns away (blinds himself) from the remembrance of the Most Beneficent (Allah) (i.e. this Qur'an and worship of Allah), We appoint for him Shaitan (Satan ¬ devil) to be a Qarin (an intimate companion) to him. (Az-Zukhruf 43:36)

"From the evil of the whisperer (devil who whispers evil in the hearts of men) who withdraws (from his whispering in one's heart after one remembers Allah), (An-Nas 114:4)

"Who whispers in the breasts of mankind, (An-Nas 114:5)

-these people who don’t make dhikr
-have shayateen appointed to them as their constant companion
-these shayateen whisper to them and they hear voices
-they are given tablets and diagnosed with a chemical imbalance in the brain
-your state will be pitiful

And (remember) the Day when the Zalim (wrong-doer, oppressor, polytheist, etc.) will bite at his hands, he will say: "Oh! Would that I had taken a path with the Messenger ( Muhammad SAW). (Al-Furqan 25:27)

"Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend! (Al-Furqan 25:28)


And (remember) the Day when the Zalim (wrong-doer, oppressor, polytheist, etc.) will bite at his hands, he will say: "Oh! Would that I had taken a path with the Messenger ( Muhammad SAW). (Al-Furqan 25:27)

"Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend! (Al-Furqan 25:28)

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “A man is on the religion of his friend, so let each of you observe whom he be friends.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/589) No. 2378, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/259) No. 4833, Musnad Ahmad (2/334) No. 8398]

Choose your friends carefully
-many people are in prison serving a very long sentence
-due to bad company
-the company you keep either helps you
-to go to the Jannat or to be doomed to the Hellfire forever


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

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say) : "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

The Shady Shiites, the Goofy Sufi's
-why did Allah call them Kaffirs and liars?
-this is because they recite surah Fatiha in every salah
-yet they make dua to others

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

Nu’man ibn Bashir (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said, “The supplication is itself worship.” Then he recited. And your Lord says, “Call upon Me, and I shall answer you. Surely those who are too arrogant to worship Me, they shall enter Hell, disgraced.” (40: 60) [Tirmidhi (5/456) No. 3372, Abu Dawud (2/76) No. 1479, Ibn Majah (5/5) No. 3828, Ahmad (4/271) No. 18410]

Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam from Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "O Allah! Do not make my grave an idol that is worshipped. The anger on those who took the graves of their Prophets as places of prostration was terrible." [Muwatta Malik (1/223) No. 570, Musannaf Abdur Razzaq (1/406) No. 1587, Musnad Ahmad (2/246) No. 7352]

Abu al-Husain Muhammad Ibn Ahmad al-'Asqalani said: «The Mu'tazila of Baghdad and Basra, and all of ahl al-Qibla, there is no ikhtilaf between them concerning, that the one who doubts regarding the kafir then he himself is a kafir, because the doubter (sakk) concerning kufr there's no ‘iman for him, because he don't know kufr from ‘iman. So there's no dispute between the Umma, the Mu'tazila and other than them; that the doubter concerning the kafir is kafir!“ Taken from (Kitab al-Tanbih wa al-Radd 'ala ahl al-Ahwa' wa al-Bida’, by Muhammad Ibn Ahmad al-Malati)

The Beralvis, Shia, the Goofy Soofi are all Kaffirs
-they don’t make takfir on the Christians
-the Christians say Muhammad (saw) is a false Prophet and they worship Jesus


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

In a democracy the Majority has the say
-when they wanted to vote for Gay Marriages
-the majority of MP's put up their hands to support it

Democracy does not go according to Quran and Sunnah
-they don’t refer to Quran and Sunnah in case of disagreement
-as Allah (swt) stated in 4:59

And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah's Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie. (Al-An'am 6:116)

-Allah cursed the Majority in Quran
-in every country there is always a minority who are sincere
-the majority are hypocrites, sinful and evil


That was a nation who has passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do. (Al-Baqarah 2:134)

Pay attention to what Allah will ask you
-did you fast during the last Ramadan?
-did you pray Fajr on time?

“The first thing the people will be accountable for on the Day of Judgment is prayer, Allah will say to His angels (even though he already knows): “Look at my servants prayers. Were they complete or not?” If they were complete it will be written as complete. If they were not fully complete Allah will say: “See if my servant has voluntary prayers, if he has them Allah will say: Complete his obligatory prayers shortage with his voluntary prayers.” Then the rest of his deeds will be dealt with in the same manner.” [Reported by Imams Ahmad, Abu Dawood, An-Nisa'i, and Al-Hakim]

Abu Sa‘eed al-Khudri (RA) narrated the prophet (SAW) said: ‘Do not slander my Companions, for if one of you were to spend an amount of gold equivalent to the size of Mount Uhud, you would not even come halfway up to their level." [al-Bukhari (3673) and Muslim (2540)]

Abdullah ibn Mughaffal (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Allah! Allah! my Sahabah do not take them as target (for blame) after me. He who loves them, loves them because of his love for me and he who despises them, despises them because of despising me. And, he who abuses them, has abused me; and, he who abuses me, abuses Allah; and, he who abuses Allah, soon He will seize him (in punishment).” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/696) No. 3862]

Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: "Whoever insults my companions, may the curse of Allah, the angels and all of mankind be on them." [al-Mu’jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (12/142) No. 12709]

-this ayah above was used to solve the problem of the sick minded
-when you go to Shia rooms, they speak about who should have been the caliph
-Allah won’t ask about them on the Day of Resurrection.


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)

"...I marry women. Whoever turns away from my Sunnah is not of me.” (Sahih al Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.7 pg No.1. Sahih-Muslim, English translation Vol 2 pg 703 No.3236)

-the moment you have sexual needs, marriage is fard on you


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

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

-the believer is patient when bad comes
-and this is good for him

Suhayb Ibn Sinan narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Wonderful are the affairs of a believer; for there is good in every affair of his; this is not the case with anyone else except a believer. If he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (Allah), thus there is good for him in it. If he suffers affliction, he endures patiently, which is good for him. [Sahih Muslim (4/2295) No. 2999]

Anas (radiAllahu ‘anhu — may Allah be please with him) reported: The Prophet ﷺ passed by a woman who was crying over a grave and said, “Fear Allah and be patient.” She said, “Away from me! My calamity has not befallen you and you are not aware of it.” The woman was later told that it was the Prophet ﷺ [who had advised her]. She came to his door where she found no doorkeeper. She said, “[I am sorry] I did not know you.” Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Patience is at the first stroke”. [Bukhari and Muslim]

One should be patient with Qadr rather than pleased with it
-the real sabr is at the first strike of the calamity
-not after you have complained and then later say you will be patient
-this makes you a real believer


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

-do not take the enemies of Allah (swt) for friends
-anyone who declares war on Muslims, declares war on Allah

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’" It was related by al-Bukhari.

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

Anas bin Malik (RA) reported: The Prophet (SAW) said, "There are three qualities whoever has them, will taste the sweetness of Iman (faith): To love Allah and His Messenger (SAW) more than anyone else; to love a slave (of Allah) only for (the sake of) Allah; and to abhor returning to infidelity after Allah has saved him from it as he would abhor to be thrown into the fire (of Hell)." [al-Bukhari (21) and Muslim (43)]

-if you have these three qualities in the hadith
-you have tasted the sweetness of emaan


And those who came after them say: "Our Lord! Forgive us and our brethren who have preceded us in Faith, and put not in our hearts any hatred against those who have believed. Our Lord! You are indeed full of kindness, Most Merciful. (Al-Hashr 59:10)

-this ayat is used to cure the person who has any resentment for the Sahabah


Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Aali Imran 3:31)

A Parvezi is a hadith rejecter
-if you are debating with a person and they reject hadith
-this person has a disease in his heart

...And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Hashr 59:7)

-gold and silk are made haram for men through hadith

Reported by 'Ali (RA) the Prophet (SAW) took some silk in his right hand and some gold in his left hand and then he said, "These two are haram for the males among my followers." [Abu Dawud (4/50) No. 4057, An-Nasa'i (8/160) 5144, Ibn Majah (4/594) No. 3595), Ahmad (1/115) No. 935]

-hadith taught us how to pray

Narrated By 'Ubada bin As-Samit: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Whoever does not recite Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid." [al-Bukhari (756) and Muslim (394)]

...'Umar did not take the Jizya from the Magian infidels till 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf testified that Allah's Apostle had taken the Jizya from the Magians of Hajar. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 53, Hadith #384]

Bara bin Aazib (RA) said that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) was asked about making ablution after eating camel flesh. He said, “Make ablution after that”. Then he was asked about mutton. He said, “It is not necessary after that.” [Sunan Dawud (1/47) No. 184, Sunan Tirmidhi (1/122) No. 81, Sunan Ibn Majah (1/311) No. 494, Musnad Ahmad (4/303) No 18725]

-those who reject hadith, want to put a spin on Islam
-they make up their own religion and this is their hidden agenda
-every ayah is spun out of context


Some of you sit with the munafiqeen and become like them

Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see. Then, He Istawa (rose above) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed. He regulates all affairs, explaining the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that you may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord. (Ra'd 13:2)

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)

Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, then behold it shakes (as in an earthquake)? (Al-Mulk 67:16)

It is narrated that the companion Mu`awiyah ibn al-Hakam, (RA) slapped his servant girl who used to tend his sheep, and as a result went to the Prophet (SAWS) and asked what should be done as an atonement for having slapped her. The Prophet replied, "Bring her to me" so Mu`awiyah brought her to the Prophet. The Prophet then asked her, "Where is Allah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allah’s Messenger", so the Prophet said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer." [Sahih Muslim (1/381) No. 537]

...Zainab used to boast before the wives of the Prophet and used to say, "You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens." And Thabit recited, "The Verse: 'But (O Muhammad) you did hide in your heart that which Allah was about to make manifest, you did fear the people,' (33.37) was revealed in connection with Zainab and Zaid bin Haritha." [Sahih Bukhari (9/125) No. 7421]

Ja'far Ibn Abdullah narrated: We were with Malik Ibn Anas when a man came to him and said: “O Abu Abdullah (Allah said) 'Ar-Rahman upon the Throne Istawa' (20:5), how was His Istiwa? Imam Malik inclined his head and was silent until the sweat of fever covered his brow, then he looked up and said: "Istiwa is not unknown, the Kayf (how) is uncomprehendable, believing in it is wajib (obligatory), and asking about it is bid'ah (innovation), and I do not think that you are anything but an innovator." Then he ordered that the man be expelled. [Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked , ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” (‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

The Quran and Hadith are used in unison to cure such people
-Abu Hanifa used to make takfir on those who did not believe that Allah is above the Arsh


Say (O Muhammad SAW) : "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God i.e. Allah). So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord." (Al-Kahf 18:110)

The Sufi aqeeda believes that Muhammad is noor

Abu Talhah (RA) narrated: We complained to Allah’s Messenger (SAW) about our hunger and raising from our stomach (the garment) bared the stone each of us had tied to it. He showed that he had two stones (tied to his stomach.) [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/585) No. 2371, Bayhaqi in ‘Shu'ab al Emaan’ (13/54) No. 9943]

-when the Messenger's son died he cried

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

-the Prophet had emotions
-he had sexual needs like everyone else
-Aisha (RA) was jealous of Zainab because of her beauty


Everyone shall taste death... (Aali Imran 3:185)

-a Sufi will tell you that Muhammad (saw) is alive in his grave

Verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) will die and verily, they (too) will die. (Az-Zumar 39:30)

Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet said, "On the Day of Resurrection a group of companions will come to me, but will be driven away from the Lake-Fount, and I will say, 'O Lord (those are) my companions!' It will be said, 'You have no knowledge as to what they innovated after you left; they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam)." [Sahih Bukhari (8/120) No. 6585]

-this hadith is called the Knockout punch


Verily! You (O Muhammad SAW) guide not whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided. (Al-Qasas 28:56)

-the rasul (saw) was the best preacher but he couldn’t give his uncle shahada
-when Abu Talib was on his death bed, the Prophet (saw) rushed to his bedside
-he did not listen to the Prophet, he listened to Abu Jahl

Narrated by Saeed bin Al-Musaiyyab from his father who said: “when the time of death of Abu Talib approached, Allah’s Apostle(saw) went to him and found Abu Jahl bin Hisham and Abdullah bin Abi Umayyia by his side. Allah’s Apostle said to Abu Talib, ‘O uncle! Say: None has the right to be worshipped except Allah (La ilaha illAllah), a sentence with which I shall be a witness i.e. intercede for you before Allah’. Abu Jahl and Abdullah ibn Umaiyya said, ‘O Abu Talib! Are you going to denounce the religion of your father Abdul Muttalib?’, Allah’s Apostle kept on inviting Abu Talib to say ‘Laa ilaha illAllah’ (i.e. None has the right to Worshipped except Allah) while they Abu Jahl and Abdullah kept on repeating their statement till Abu Talib said as his last statement that he was on the religion of his father Abdul Muttalib and thus he refused to say ‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allah’ (La ilaha illAllah). (Sahih Bukhari(Arabic/English) Vol.2 pg.248 No.442

-you are allowed to like a Kaffir but not love them
-the kaafir that is a sympathizer to Islam
-not the one antagonistic to Islam

In life you will come across problems in your faith
-you will have relapses in your faith and creed
-sometimes these problems are mental AND sometimes behavioral

We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)


Verily! You (O Muhammad SAW) guide not whom you like, but Allāh guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided. (Al-Qasas 28:56)

-the verse used to bring comfort to you is 28:56
-this was revealed to comfort the prophet (SAW) when his uncle died a kaafir
-you are allowed to like a kaafir if he is sympathetic to Islam

"And our duty is only to convey plainly (the Message)." (Ya-Sin 36:17)

-surah Ya-sin is also used for comfort in this respect
-our job is to preach and Allah will turn the hearts


You spend all your time in the masjid reading and making salah
-and forget to work and feed your family
-Islam doesn’t tell you to stop having fun
-you are an extremist if you don’t have fun
-you have fun in a halal way
-28:77 is used to bring you back from this
-you turn your back on fun and become boring

But seek, with that (wealth) which Allāh has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world...... (Al-Qasas 28:77)

-another verse: we have made you a balanced nation (2:143)

Thus We have made you [true Muslims - real believers of Islāmic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a Wasat (just) (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad) be a witness over you..(Al-Baqarah 2:143)


15:9 is used to solve this problem

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

-and surah 41:42

Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allāh). (Fussilat 41:42)

-Allah has promised to protect the Quran
-no sincere Muslim can doubt this
-the Shiites doubt this


-Surah 33:40 is for this

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

Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “My likeness and the likeness of the prophets before me is the likeness of a person who built a house, made it beautiful and made it complete, except the place of a stone in the corner. So people began to go round and to wonder at him and say: ‘Why have you not placed this stone?’ I am that stone and I am Khatam an-Nabiyyin (the Seal of the Prophets)". [al-Bukhari (3535) and Muslim (2286)]

-this should take any doubt regarding this point away
-if anyone believes otherwise he is not a Muslim


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

You are not allowed to join the USA/UK/French armies
-if you die fighting for these armies you die a kaafir
-some shaikhs pass fatawa saying you can join the taghoot army
-4:76 refutes this


The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islāmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allāh, that you may receive mercy. (Al-Hujurat 49:10)

-49:10 is what you use for this scenario
-also 49:13

O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allāh is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqûn (pious - see V.2:2). Verily, Allāh is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

-these ayat bring comfort to those who suffer
-as a result of tribalism, sexism and many others


…Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women impure and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity: these are not affected by what people say: for them there is forgiveness and a provision honourable. (An-Nur 24:26)

And those who say: "Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders for the Muttaqûn" (pious - see V.2:2 and the footnote of V.3:164)." (Al-Furqan 25:74)

-these are the two ayat we use when seeking a spouse
-everything we do must be for the sake of Allah

O you who believe! Verily, among your wives and your children there are enemies for you (i.e. may stop you from the obedience of Allāh), therefore beware of them! But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive (their faults), then verily, Allāh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Taghabun 64:14)

-this is the third Quranic verse used when seeking out a partner
-always choose a pious wife/husband

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a losers. [al-Bukhari (5090) and Muslim (1466)]


When you visit the grave, you will come to know

The mutual rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you, (At-Takathur 102:1)

Until you visit the graves (i.e. till you die). (At-Takathur 102:2)

Nay! You shall come to know! (At-Takathur 102:3)

Again, Nay! You shall come to know! (At-Takathur 102:4)

Ali (RA) narrated: We did not cease to doubt punishment in the grave till the surah was revealed: Your rivalry in the accumulation of wealth diverts your minds. (102:1 etc.) [Sunan Tirmidhi (Vol. 5 pg. 447) No. 3355]

Nay, you prefer the life of this world; (Al-A'la 87:16)

Although the Hereafter is better and more lasting. (Al-A'la 87:17)

-there are many Quranic verses regarding the dunya deceiving you
-this is only if you would like to change your pathetic state or being in a predicament


-Allah will only remove this predicament if you come back to your deen
-Allah will NEVER remove this predicament UNITL you come back to your deen

Allāh will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allāh).... (Ra'd 13:11)


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

There are many people who try to undermine jihad with erroneous fatawa
-you cannot put a spin on Qitaal (fighting)
-sometimes in life you love something that isn’t good for you
-e.g. cowardice; you end up shunning Jihad
-cowardice is the easy way out
-the steep motorway takes you the paradise
-the flat motorway takes you to the Hellfire

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

Imraan ibn Hussain (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, ‘A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight for the sake of the truth until the last of them fights the Dajjal (anti-Christ) [Sunan Abu Dawud (3/4) No. 2484, Musnad Ahmad (4/437) No. 19934, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/81) No. 2392]

Narrated By Muawiya: I heard the Prophet saying, "A group of people amongst my followers will remain obedient to Allah's orders and they will not be harmed by anyone who will not help them or who will oppose them, till Allah's Order (the Last Day) comes upon them while they are still on the right path." [Sahih Bukhari (4/207) No. 3641]

-those who say there is no Jihad in the world are munafiqeen
-don't go for debates until you study and made your research
-to those who say there is no jihad without a Caliph,
-always remember this date, 1260 CE
-this is the year of the Battle of Ain Jaloot
-avoid the munafiqeen and be harsh towards them

O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed is that destination. (At-Tawbah 9:73)

-these people make up their own religion
-stop the fame game and pursue the path of sincerity


Allāh does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allāh loves those who deal with equity. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:8)

All the kuffaar are not the same
-you should be kind to them (those who don’t fight you for your deen)
-you cannot borrow money from them and
-not expect to pay them back as you would to a Muslim
-the kaafir who lends you money shows he/she is sympathetic towards you
-there is a thin line between love and hate

Perhaps Allāh will make friendship between you and those whom you hold as enemies. And Allāh has power (over all things), and Allāh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:7)

-this ayah was revealed for Abu Sufyan
-the Prophet (saw) was married to his daughter, Umm Habibah


"O my sons! Go you and enquire about Yûsuf (Joseph) and his brother, and never give up hope of Allāh's Mercy. Certainly no one despairs of Allāh's Mercy, except the people who disbelieve." (Yusuf 12:87)

Prophet Jacob (a.s) said these words to his sons
-when he told them to go and look for Joseph (a.s) and Benjamin in Egypt
-as a Muslim you are not allowed to despair
-after hardship comes ease
-and Allah will never put a burden on you more than you can bear
-after every hardship comes two eases

The Quran is a 'medicine' so a real scholar needs to know
-exactly which Ayah to use to solve the problem
-When the Prophet (saw) died and Omar refused to accept he was dead
-Abu Bakr (r.a) very tactfully used the Quran to solve Omar's problem

Muhammad (SAW) is no more than a Messenger, and indeed (many) Messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels (as disbelievers)? And he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allāh, and Allāh will give reward to those who are grateful. (Aali Imran 3:144)


Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allāh is All-Aware of what they do. (An-Nur 24:30)

And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like palms of hands or one eye or both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms, etc.) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husband's sons, their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islām), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allāh to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful. (An-Nur 24:31)

The above ayah also addresses women
-It is haraam for a woman to leave the house without hijab and jilbab
-It is haraam for men to leave the house with tight trousers
-tight clothing in general (not just trousers)

When a man looks at a woman, he looks at the obvious
-women also lust after men
-otherwise male strippers would not have an industry
-hence lowering the gaze applies to BOTH sexes


-always remember surah noor verse 31
-it is haraam for a woman to go out without hijab or jilbab

ودخل نسوة من بني تميم على عائشة رضي الله عنها عليهن ثياب رقاق، فقالت عائشة: إن كنتن مؤمنات فليس هذا بلباس المؤمنات، وإن كنتن غير مؤمنات فتمتعينه
Some women from Banu Tamim came to see 'Aisha (RA) wearing transparent clothing. 'Aisha said to them: "If you are believing women, these are not the clothes of believing women." [Tafsir al-Qurtubi (14/244)]

وأدخلت امرأة عروس على عائشة رضي الله عنها وعليها خمار قبطي معصفر، فلما رأتها قالت: لم تؤمن بسورة" النور" امرأة تلبس هذا
A bride came to see 'Aishah (RA) wearing a sheer, transparent khimaar, whereupon 'Aishah (RA) said: "A woman who wears such clothing does not believe in Soorat An-Nur." [Tafsir al-Qurtubi (14/244)]

Hijab & Jilbab is a religious statement, as well as a political statement
-the political statement is that you believe in Sharia
-the Religious statement is that you believe in the Holy Quran
-this Political statement is what resulted to France banning hijab
-owing to their political system being secularism
-the truth is they are jealous, as well as hypocritical
-on the one hand, women are 'FREE' to dress half naked
-yet NOT FREE to dress in Hijab, Jilbab or Niqab
-in France they've banned hijab in schools also
-and the Taghoot will not stop there
-they also would like to ban Halal meat etc.

O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e.screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allāh is Ever Oft¬Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al-Ahzab 33:59)

-the hypocrites in Madina
-used to make indecent proposals to Muslims girls
-and the excuse they gave for doing so was to say
-they did not know that they were Muslim women
-Allah (swt) then revealed 33:59 to checkmate them!
-hence the Muslim woman's attire was a clear indication that there's
-no excuse to approach them for indecent proposals
-hijab should flow (i.e. no elastics on the waist, or belts)
-as this reveals their shape / figure

On the authority of Ibn Umar (RA) the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Indeed, anyone who imitates a people is one of them." [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/44) No. 4031]

'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin al-'As reported: 'The Messenger of Allah (SAW) saw me wearing two clothes dyed in saffron. Where upon he said: "These are the clothes (usually worn by) the non-believers, so do not wear them."' [Sahih Muslim (3/1647) No. 2077, Musnad Ahmad (2/207) No. 6931, Sunan al-Nasa'i (8/203) No. 5316]

-the colour has to also be mild (dark black, blue, brown)


-the Niqab is SUNNAH

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

-if niqab was fard, it would have been impossible
-for Bilal (r.a) to see the dark spot on her cheek


-I.e. trusting the wrong people
-always remember 8:29

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allāh, He will grant you Furqān 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 Allāh is the Owner of the Great Bounty. (Al-Anfal 8:29)

-trusting the wrong people can get you conned out of your life savings
-hence the furqan gives you strong guidance


-when you're living in Darul Harb, you can easily fall into this
-e.g. during intimacy with your wife, do you (i.e. the male) ONLY think about yourself?
-or do you think about your wife's needs?

....And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards living expenses, etc.) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards obedience and respect, etc.) to what is reasonable, but men have a degree (of responsibility) over them. And Allāh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Baqarah 2:228)

-thus women have similar rights over their husbands

When Ibn Abbas (r.a) dressed up for his wife
-he used the above Ayah (2:228) as a hujjah


Refer to 17:27

Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatīn (devils), and the Shaitān (Devil ¬ Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (Al-Isra 17:27)


Refer to 17:23-24

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. (Al-Isra 17:23)

And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small." (Al-Isra 17:24)

-some 'muslims' slap their parents
-and when questioned on why they did that
-claim that they "didn't say oof!"


-you have to look after them and be kind to them
-Abu Hurairah (r.a) took care of his kaafir mother
-and he cried and went to the rasul (saw) when she insulted the rasul
-and the rasul made dua for her; she embraced Islam


Refer to 49:10

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islāmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allāh, that you may receive mercy. (Al-Hujurat 49:10)

-the Berailvis in the UK are closer to Hindus & Sikhs


-Tahir ul Qadri's followers DO SAJDA TO HIM!
-and he welcomes this i.e. massages his ego!

Single sisters need to be given value, because they are treated like lepers
-when they are single
-hence this causes married sisters insecurity
-and this impacts Sisterhood

The freemasons have the audacity to call their movement 'The Brotherhood'
-on the foundation of La Ilaha Illallah
-a Muslim who is Practicing is closer to you than your blood brother who is NOT

Nubay bin Wahab (RA) from the Banu Abdud Daar tribe reports that when Rasulullaah (SAW) arrived with the captives from the Battle of Badr, they distributed them amongst the Sahabah saying, "I emphatically command you to treat them wel1." Amongst the prisoners was Abu Azeez bin Umayr bin Hishaam, the real brother of Mus'ab bin Umayr. Abu Azeez says, "When I was captured by one of the Ansaar, my brother Mus'ab bin Umayr passed by. He said to the Ansaari, 'Tie both his hands well because his mother is very wealthy and she will pay a large ransom for him.' I was with a group of Ansaar when we returned from the battle. Whenever the morning and afternoon meals were served, they gave me the bread and ate dates only because of the instruction of Rasulullaah (SAW) to treat us (prisoners) well. Whenever any of them happened to receive any bread, he would ensure that he gave it to me. When I returned it to him out of embarrassment, he would give it back without even touching it." Abu Yasar (RA) was the Ansaari who captured Abu Azeez. After Mus'ab bin Umayr had told Abu Yasar what he did (about tying both hands well), Abu Azeez said, "Dear brother! Is this the advice you give him about me (your own brother)?" Mus'ab replied, "He (Abu Yasar) is my brother and not you." When Abu Azeez's mother enquired what the highest ransom was that anyone from the Quraysh had paid, she was informed that it was four thousand Dirhams. She then sent four thousand Dirhams and ransomed her son. [Ibn Is'haaq, as quoted in Al Bidaayah wan Nihaayah (Vol. 3 Pg.307)]


-or if you have a family member who does so
-refer to 49:11

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one's brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: "O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zālimûn (wrong-doers, etc.). (Al-Hujurat 49:11)'

-the kaafirs of Quraish laughed at Bilal because he was black
-they also laughed at Salman-al-Farisi because he was Persian

Narrated By Abu Huraira: At the time of the Fajr prayer the Prophet asked Bilal, "Tell me of the best deed you did after embracing Islam, for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise." Bilal replied, "I did not do anything worth mentioning except that whenever I performed ablution during the day or night, I prayed after that ablution as much as was written for me." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 21, Hadith #250]

-and also at Zaid Ibn Haritha because he was a freed slave
-Abu Lahab was one of those laughing at Bilal

Perish the two hands of Abû Lahab (an uncle of the Prophet), and perish he! (Al-Masad 111:1)

His wealth and his children (etc.) will not benefit him! (Al-Masad 111:2)

I will cast him into Hell-fire (Al-Muddaththir 74:26)

-above ayah (74:26) refers to Waleed Ibn Mugheera
-in many cultures, you'll be laughed at if you drive an average car
-or have humble clothing
-or humble occupation

However if you laugh at a person because he is Black or White, etc
-Allah (swt) has given us physical feature that He Wishes!

In whatever form He willed, He put you together. (Al-Infitar 82:8)

So the racist is like the dung beetle!

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Indeed Allah has removed from you the blind loyalties of jahiliyyah and the pride for ancestry. Either be a pious believer or a miserable sinner. (All of) you are children of Adam, and Adam is from dust. Let some men cease to take pride in others, who are nothing but burning coal for the HellFire, it will be easier for Allah to handle them than a dung beetle driving his nose into filth.” [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/331) No. 5116, Musnad Ahmad (2/361) No. 8721]


-i.e. don't brush your teeth, make ghusl, etc.

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) 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)]

Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “If it were not too much of a burden on my nation, I would have ordered them to use the Siwak with every ablution (they perform).” [Musnad Ahmad (2/460) No. 9930, al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Nasa'i (3/291) No. 3031, Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah (1/73) No. 140]

-bad breath is a legitimate reason to divorce your partner!
-bad hygiene in general is a reason for divorce

So if you find yourself relapsing, always remember 2:222

....Truly, Allāh 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)


-i.e. to dismantle the Sharia; believing that to dismantle the Sharia is MINOR KUFR
-refer to 5:60

Say (O Muhammad SAW to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allāh: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allāh and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Tāghût (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell¬fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:60)

-so if that is your standpoint,
-are you trying to insinuate that Allah (SWT) was over reacting?
-this is how you checkmate a Madkhali
-always remember Maida 44

....And whosoever does not judge by what Allāh has revealed, such are the Kāfirûn (i.e. disbelievers - of a lesser degree as they do not act on Allāh's Laws). (Al-Ma'idah 5:44)

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eeman for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." [Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]

Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen said: "The first type is when the Hukm of Allah is removed and replaced with another Taghuutee Hukm, so that the Hukm of the Shari'ah is eliminated between the people and he puts in its place another Hukm from the fabrication of the humans and they remove the laws of the Shari'ah concerning the Mu'amalah (i. e. the general actions between people) and they put in its place fabricated laws and this, without doubt, is Istib'daal (i. e. replacement) of the Shari'ah of Allah subhaanahuu wa-ta'ala, with other than it. And this is Kufr which removes one from the Milla because this person put himself at the level of the Creator because he shara'a (legislated) for the slaves of Allah that which Allah ta'ala did not give permission for and that is Shirk in His, ta'ala's saying: "Or have they partners with Allâh (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion, which Allâh has not allowed?" (Ash-Shu'ara, 21) – "Fiqh Al-'Ebaadaat", #60

Shaikh Muhammad Naasiruddin Al-Albaanee: Who said, in one of his earlier cassette recorded lessons, wherein he is describing an argument he had with someone about the Takfeer of Mustafa Ataturk, the secularist who converted the constitution of Turkey from the Hanafee code Shari'ah, to the man-made laws. So Shaykh Al-Albaanee said: "I made clear to him (i.e. his opponent) that the Muslims did not make Takfeer to Ataturk who was Muslim. No. (They did so) when he freed himself from Islaam when he implicated upon the Muslims an institution other than the institution of Islaam. And from that was the example of his equalizing between the inheritance of the male and the female. But Allah says according to us, 'And for the male is the share of two females. ' And then he obligated upon the Turkish masses, the Qobah (i. e. a Turkish-style hat)." – "Fataawa Ash-Shaykh al-Albaanee wa-Maqara'netihah bi'Fatawaa Al-'Ulaama", Pg. 263 from his cassette #171.


There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Tāghût and believes in Allāh, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allāh is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:256)

-1st Half of Shahada: Believing in Allah
-2nd Half of Shahada: Rejecting the Taghoot

A false deity is Taghoot
-taghoot is the man who dabbles in black magic
-and claims to have powers which are exclusive to Allah
-Taghoot is the kaafir court house, the kaafir army, the kaafir institutions


-Note: many Muslims marry Hindus
-always remember 2:221

And do not marry Al-Mushrikāt (idolatresses, etc.) till they believe (worship Allāh Alone). And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a (free) Mushrikah (idolatress, etc.), even though she pleases you. And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikûn till they believe (in Allāh Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater, etc.), even though he pleases you. Those (Al-Mushrikûn) invite you to the Fire, but Allāh invites (you) to Paradise and Forgiveness by His Leave, and makes His Ayāt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to mankind that they may remember. (Al-Baqarah 2:221)

-Mushrikah = Sikhs, Hindus, Rastafarians, Agnostics, Atheists, Buddhists etc.
-even if she impresses you intellectually, occupationally,
-educationally as well as her beauty,
-Allah (SWT) has Made it CLEAR not to marry them
-and to go for a believing woman (in 2:221)
-alternatively, you can marry them if they become believing women

Narrated By Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a losers. [al-Bukhari (5090) and Muslim (1466)]

-Marriages to Hindu, Sikhs, etc. are BAATIL
-and the children from those marriages are illegitimate


-especially those who live in Europe & America
-always remember 60:10

O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them, Allāh knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers, send them not back to the disbelievers, they are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them. But give the disbelievers that (amount of money) which they have spent [as their Mahr] to them. And there will be no sin on you to marry them if you have paid their Mahr to them. Likewise hold not the disbelieving women as wives, and ask for (the return of) that which you have spent (as Mahr) and let them (the disbelievers, etc.) ask back for that which they have spent. That is the Judgement of Allāh. He judges between you. And Allāh is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:10)

-any Shaikh who makes it halaal is a KAAFIR
-this ayah clearly warns fathers not to marry their daughters to non-muslim men


-i.e. you suffer a relapse in Taqwa
-always remember 2:165

And of mankind are some who take (for worship) others besides Allāh as rivals (to Allāh). They love them as they love Allāh. But those who believe, love Allāh more (than anything else). If only, those who do wrong could see, when they will see the torment that all power belongs to Allāh and that Allāh is Severe in punishment. (Al-Baqarah 2:165)

-e.g. if you miss Jumm’ah because you love running your shop
-and believe you can't afford to shut the shop for a couple of hours on Friday
-World Cup football is a classic example when people miss their Salah


Kuffar will be punished eternally in hell, but in the meantime don’t we try to bring them to Islam with da’wah?


If they don’t want the da’wah there is nothing you can do

And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly. (Yusuf 12:103)

-the majority will die as kuffar
-don’t give da’wah to those who don’t show interest
-you may have all the zeal but the majority will not believe

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

-Allah says give the da’wah only if it benefits
-those who are rebellious, shun them and leave them alone


If a ta’weez has ayatul Qursi, Allah’s name(s) and name(s) of angel(s) written on them, is that permissible to wear when one is inflicted with Jinn?


-ta’weez is bid’ah
-some scholars say it is minor shirk
-you recite the Quran to be protected, not wear it
-this was not practiced by the prophet (saw) and the sahabah

‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amir narrates that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said: “If anyone wears an amulet, may Allah not help him in fulfilling his wish. If anyone wears a sea-shell around his neck, may Allah give him no peace.” [Musnad Ahmad (4/154) No. 17440 and Musnad Abu Ya'la (3/295) No. 1759]

It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (SAW)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.” [Musnad Ahmad (4/156) No. 17458 and Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/243) No. 7513]

-innovations lead to the hell fire

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


Assalamu alaikum Sheikh, what is your opinion of so called Muslims demonstrating against the Sharia; they want to implement Sharia in Egypt and then so called Muslims say we oppose Sharia, they prefer mixing a little bit of Sharia with French law! They say 'there are many different Sharia's, which one should they implement?'


Is not Allah the Best of judges? (At-Tin 95:8)

They are apostates who demonstrate against the sharia
-they are yet to be Muslims
-they are hypocrites

Or have they partners with Allah (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion which Allah has not allowed. And had it not been for a decisive Word (gone forth already), the matter would have been judged between them. And verily, for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers), there is a painful torment. (Ash-Shura 42:21)


A sister just started practicing; although she had feelings for her ex she married fisabilillah because she thought it was best to have a fresh start. The marriage was difficult & she wasn't attracted to her husband & ended up speaking with her ex who said if her husband divorced her he'd marry her. If she now marries him would her marriage be invalid due to the haram that lead to it? If so what is your advice as she feels this man will continue to be a fitna for her?


-Counseling is needed
-this is too complicated to be dealt with in paltalk
-women need to stop playing games
-they accept proposal with one person when they are in love with another
-discuss with your wali
-the wali should be a wise person
-if no wali discuss with your local shaikh
-chemistry is emphasized before marriage


If my husband takes a second wife, will I be rewarded (have "aghir"), for having patience (sabr”)? Is there a special reward in this case, or is it the same reward for all women who obey their husbands and make their religious duties? If I would get to know about a special reward, things would be easier to accept. Someone said that the reward for this kind of woman was more than the reward for a mu´min leaving for jihad. And since Hajj is the jihad of a woman, accepting polygamy for the first wife is more than jihad. Is there daleel (evidence) for this, or do you know about another reward?


Ibn Mas’ood narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Allah has decreed jealousy for women and jihad for men, so whoever bears that with patience out of faith and in the hope of reward will have a reward like that of a martyr.” [al-Tabarani in 'al-Mu’jam al-Kabir' (10/87) No. 10040] (Daeef)

-this hadith is weak, but it is allowed to use it to encourage you to acts of piety

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

-you should love for your sister what you want for yourself

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]


Assalamu alaikum shaikh, Could you please tell me the Quranic verse to deal with tyrants in the work place and also a Quranic dua against them?


-the tyrants in the Quran are Nimrod and Pharaoh
-there is a dua you can recite: 2:86

..."Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us (Jews and Christians); our Lord! Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Suppor-ter and Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people." (Al-Baqarah 2:286)

-this is the dua used by Saud Ibn Qaas before a battle


Does "a’immatal mudilloon" refer to leaders, scholars or both?


-A’imma means leaders
-the leaders of the community
-it is referring to both
-political/religious/military and judges
-all of these leaders
-if they are astray the community will be destroyed

Abu Dhar said, "I was with the Prophet (SAW) one day and I heard him saying: "There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal." It was then that I became afraid, so I said: "Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?" He (SAW) said; "Misguided and astray scholars." [Musnad Ahmad (5/145) No. 21334 and 21335]


Is there a valid excuse for those who don’t want to get married due to the lack of Muslims not following the true aqeeda of ASWJ? This is because we are living in a time of seer misguidance.


-you are correct
-but you have to get married if you have sexual needs
-marriage is compulsory in this case

"...I marry women. Whoever turns away from my Sunnah is not of me.” (Sahih al Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.7 pg No.1. Sahih-Muslim, English translation Vol 2 pg 703 No.3236)

-you need to have kids to pray for you when you are in the grave

Narrated By Ma'qil ibn Yasar: A man came to the Prophet (SAW) 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 people by you." [Abu Dawud, Book 5, Hadith #2045]

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]

-many Muslim sisters in their 30s are not married because they cannot find pious brothers


Shaikh is it haraam to accept the gift from kuffar in Christmas? Does one become a kaafir if he does? What if he just wants the gift but knows that Christmas is shirk?


-accepting the gift on Christmas does not make you a kaafir
-tell them to save it for you till New Year’s Day
-you can say happy New Year, it is not shirk
-Allah created the time
-whether you count from the solar calendar or the lunar calendar, is ok
-to say merry Christmas is shirk


Shaikh, I know is haram for men to wear Gold, and I thought that it was halal for women, but this hadith has me questioning what is correct. Please explain [hadith below]?

Narrated Asma' daughter of Yazid: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Any woman who wears a gold necklace will have a similar one of fire put on her neck on the Day of Resurrection, and any woman who puts a gold earring in her ear will have a similar one of fire put in her ear on the Day of Resurrection. (Book #34, Hadith #4226 Sunan Abu dawud


-the sharh is those who wear gold and refuse to pay zakah on it
-only Albaani said gold is haram for women

Narrated by Abu Dawood and al-Nasaa’i from ‘Amr ibn Shu’ayb from his father from his grandfather, that a woman came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with a daughter of hers, on whose hand were two heavy bangles of gold. He said to her, “Do you pay zakah on these?” She said, “No.” He said, “Would you be happy if Allah were to give you two bracelets of fire on the Day of Resurrection because of these?” So she took them off and threw them to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), saying, “They are for Allah and His Messenger.” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explained to her the obligation to pay zakah on the two bangles mentioned, but he did not rebuke her for putting them on her daughter. This indicated that that is permissible, although they were formed into the shape of circles. The hadeeth is saheeh and its isnaad is jayyid, as was pointed out by al-Haafiz in al-Buloogh

"Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a bald-headed poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.' (Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Number 486.)

Abu Musa Ash’ari reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Wearing silk and gold is forbidden to the men of my Ummah. But (they are) allowed to their women.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/217) No. 1720, Sunan An-Nasa'i (8/161) 5148]

-he went against the ijmaa of the scholars


Shaikh many Muslims celebrate New Year’s eve and they even celebrate their birthdays and other celebrations that are clearly known to be specific to kuffar. We Muslims have only two Eids. Can you please clarify this?


-These Muslims live in darul harb
-in Muslim countries they don't have this problem
-to say merry Christmas is shirk
-to say happy New Year is not shirk because Allah created time
-to say merry Christmas you are endorsing the creed of the Christians
-they say Jesus is God


Sheikh, can an imam who believes in democracy and the taghoot system give a person shahada?


The shahada is valid
-but you cannot take your creed from him
-democracy is the religion of the shaytan
-the religion of the free masons


Assalamu alaikum Sheikh, how do you remain Steadfast in your religion? And how do you attain Ihsan?


By keeping the right company
-choose carefully who you have as a friend

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “A man is on the religion of his friend, so let each of you observe whom he be friends.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/589) No. 2378, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/259) No. 4833, Musnad Ahmad (2/334) No. 8398]

And whoso obeys Allāh and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allāh 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)

-remember 4:69 when you slip into the wrong company

Keep up your prayers
-attend a khutba that lifts your emaan
-also attend study circles of sincere shaikhs
-do not sit where the deen of Allah is ridiculed

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur'ān) that when you hear the Verses of Allāh being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allāh will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell, (An-Nisa 4:140)


Assalamu alaikum sheikh my sister has married a brother and now her ex-husband is giving her problems. He doesn’t want her to take custody of the kids and he’s trying to stop her from leaving the country to be with her husband. What do you suggest for her to do?


-This cannot be solved on paltalk
-this is a marriage problem
-the ex is jealous and didn’t expect the woman to move on
-brothers approach shaikh and ask him not to marry their ex to someone else
-this problem is complicated
-he is using the kids against the wife
-go to the local shaikh


Assalamu alaikum sheikh, what is your opinion of those people who are demonstrating and shouting: Sunnis and Shias, we are all brothers, we won't sell out our country (for example they are shouting this now in Sunni Anbar in West-Iraq (demonstrations against Maliki Shia prime minister)


-Shiites and Sunnis cannot be brothers
-they hate Abu Bakr (r.a) and Aisha (r.a)
-they are killing the Sunnis in Syria
-they make takfir on the sahabah and say that the Quran is a corrupted text
-they elevate their imams above the prophet

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islāmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allāh, that you may receive mercy. (Al-Hujurat 49:10)

-Shiites are disbelievers; their creed is kufr and shirk
