August 28th – September 01st 2013
Notes by AuthenticTauheed7 and Authentic Tauheed38

 They intend to put out the Light of Allah (i.e. the religion of Islam, this Qur'an, and Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allah will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it). (As-Saff 61:8)

The last time we stopped at Ayah 8

 He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed SAW) hate (it). (As-Saff 61:9)

We will now go to Ayah 9 Insha Allah
Allah sent His Messenger with the religion of truth to make it victorious even though the kuffaar may hate it.
This is a promise of Allah to Islam, meaning Islam shall dominate the future and there is nothing that the infidels can do about it.
 In Ayah 8 Allah told you they will spread their propaganda warfare hoping to smear the image of Islam and they spend billions of dollars to spread disinformation about Islam.
When I was young they used to call the Muslims, Muhammadans.
This is a disinformation.
 A misinformation is an innocent slip of the tongue but when you deliberately set out to spread a lie to deceive the people then it is a disinformation.
 Islam is the fastest growing religion because Allah will never break His promise.

 When Allah said He it is Who sent His messenger with guidance, it means only Allah can guide.
The guidance comes exclusively from Him and because of that, Hadith is inspiration from Allah and Surah 53:3-4 tells you that.
 Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. (An-Najm 53:3)

 It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (An-Najm 53:4)

 Narrated By Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: "Whoever tells a lie against me intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 3, Hadith #108]
 When you fabricate a Hadith and lie on the Prophet, you will go to the Hellfire because when you lie on the Prophet, you lie on Allah.

 Allah said the only religion accepted to Him is Islam
Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account. (Aali Imran 3:19)

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (Aali Imran 3:85)

When Allah declared Deen ul Haq to be Islam, He is saying that Islam is the only Deen acceptable to Him.
So the other religions are hopeless cases unless they relinquish their shirk and zandaqa and accept Islam.
 It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad, any Christian or Jew who heard about me and died whilst regecting me, such a person is in the hell fire to abide there forever." [Sahih Muslim (1/134) No. 153 and Musnad Ahmad (2/350) No. 8594]
 Anyone who dies rejecting faith in Muhammad (saw) will abide in hell forever. There is no hope for him.
  Allah (swt) tells you that they hate the Deen and the worst enemies of Islam and Muslims are the Jews and idol worshippers.

Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikun (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud. (Al-Ma'idah 5:82)

 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]
The Berailvis hate Muslims because they worship the graves making them pagans.
The grave is an idol as stated in the above Hadith.
They are liars and kuffaar as stated in Surah 39:3
 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)

He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed SAW) hate (it). (As-Saff 61:9)


 So you the Muslims are unique because you have the 4 branches of Tauheed
You don't claim to be the creator because of Tauheed Ar Rububiyyah
You don't describe Him with attributes like He rested because of Tauheed Asmaa Wa Sifaat
You don't worship the grave because of Tauheed Ibaadat
You don't believe in democracy because of Tauheed Haakimyyah

Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account. (Aali Imran 3:19)

You do not commit shirk with regards to any aspect.

And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (Aali Imran 3:85)

 You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun (disobedient to Allah - and rebellious against Allah's Command). (Aali Imran 3:110)

 Because of this Allah (swt) said that you are the best sent forward for the guidance of mankind.
The Christians claim in Exodus 31:17 that Allah rested and refreshed
They also believe that He as a son and that He made Taubah

 Ex:31:17: It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

You the Muslim have Tauheed Asmaa wa Sifaat to protect you from using these attributes to describe Allah.

 Ge:6:6: And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

  Joh:3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  Allah gave a man the Paradise because he loved Surah Ikhlas (Surah 112)
 Anas ibn Malik (RA) reported that a man of the Ansar used to lead them in salah at the mosque Quba. When he was about to recite to them any Surah in Salah (after al-Fatihah), he would begin with Surah al-Ikhlas, and when he had finished with it, he would recite some other surah to them. This, he did in every rakaah. His friends said to him,
 ‘You recite this surah but do not feel that it is enough till you recite another surah So either recite it or omit it and recite another surah (but not both) He said, “I will not omit it, if you like that I be your imam with that I will do that, but if you dislike it, then I will leave you”. They found him to be the best of them and disliked that anyone else should lead them in salah.

 So, when the Prophet (SAW) came to them, they informed him of it. He said, “O man! what prevents you from observing what your friends ask you to do? And what brings you to recite this surah in every raka’ah”? He submitted, “O Messenger of Allah (SAW), I love it” Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Your love for it will indeed admit you to Paradise.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/169) No. 2901, Sahih Bukhari (9/115) No. 7375, Musnad Ahmad (3/141) No. 12455]
 Narrated By Abu Said Al-Khudri: A man heard another man reciting (Surat-Al-Ikhlas) 'Say He is Allah, (the) One.' (112. 1) repeatedly. The next morning he came to Allah's Apostle and informed him about it as if he thought that it was not enough to recite. On that Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hand my life is, this Surah is equal to one-third of the Qur'an!" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 61, Hadith #533]
This Surah (Ikhlaas) tells you who Allah is and it is equal to 1/3 of the Quran
So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq¬illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir At¬Tabari, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30)

Islam is called the Deen Ul Fitra
 Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, “Every child is born on the religion (of Islam). Then his parents make him a Jew, a Christian or a polytheist.” Someone said, “O Messenger of Allah, (what about) those who die before (their parents convert them)?” He said, “Allah knows best what they would have done (if they had survived).” [al-Bukhari (6599) and Muslim (2658)]
The Ayah 30:30 testifies to that

 And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan¬girls, then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the captives and the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice. (An-Nisa 4:3)

Allah knows that you like to marry women so He allowed you 4 wives (polygamy)

Anas reported that some of the companions of Allah’s Messenger (saw) asked his wives about what he performed in private. Someone among them said, “I will not marry women, someone else said, “I will not eat meat” another one said, “I will not lie down in bed”. He the Prophet(saw) Praised Allah and Glorified Him and said: “What has happened to these people that they say so and so, whereas I observe prayer and I sleep too, I observe fast and I suspend observing them, I marry women also, and he who turns away from my Sunnah, he has no relation with me.” (Sahih al Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.7 pg No.1. Sahih-Muslim, English translation Vol 2 pg 703 N0.3236)
Allah allows you trading because He knows you love wealth
Communism is about you working for the state and that is slavery.

 That is because they say: "Trading is only like Riba (usury)," whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury). (Al-Baqarah 2:275)

Islam sets out platforms to establish economies with private businesses.
The government should control the education, health and security of the country but the business sector and other related areas should be privatized.
The prison system should not be privatised else there will be corruption like in the USA.

 The Holy Quran attracts non-Muslims to Islam because it is a perfect book
The Quran is so attractive because
 It has no mistakes, contradictions etc.
Allah promised to protect it.

Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradictions. (An-Nisa 4:82)

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

Surah 15:9 is the Hujjah for that and therefore it is impossible to introduce any mistakes in the Quran.
The Quran is revealed in the Arabic language and has no grammatical errors.
The worst kaafir is the Arab who is a kaafir because the mother of all miracles is in his language yet he disbelieves.

The bedouins are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy, and more likely to be in ignorance of the limits (Allah's Commandments and His Legal Laws, etc.) which Allah has revealed to His Messenger. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise. (At-Tawbah 9:97)

 The Quran coincides with all modern day scientific discoveries.
Dr Keith Moore read about the baby's development in the womb and embraced Islam saying it is impossible for Muhammad (saw) to know all this, as he was illiterate; therefore Allah must have taught him this
Maurice Baucaille embraced Islam after reading the Quran and wrote a book 'the bible, Quran and science'
 He was a French scientist and he didn't find scientific errors in the Quran

a. The Quran didn’t put on you a burden more than you can bear.

 Baqarah:286 is the Hujjah for this

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

b. Predictions of the Quran

The Quran contains predictions and they all came to pass, the ones that didn't come to pass shall come to pass.
E.g. Surah 30:1-4 has come to pass
 Alif¬Lam¬Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. (Ar-Rum 30:1)

 The Romans have been defeated. (Ar-Rum 30:2)

 In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. (Ar-Rum 30:3)

The Muslims were cheering for the Romans and the pagans were cheering for the Persians.

Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians), (Ar-Rum 30:4)

The Persians won and Allah (swt) said that the Romans will come back and defeat the Persians and this came to pass.
Perish the two hands of Abu 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)

He will be burnt in a Fire of blazing flames! (Al-Masad 111:3)

And his wife too, who carries wood (thorns of Sadan which she used to put on the way of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) , or use to slander him). (Al-Masad 111:4)

In her neck is a twisted rope of Masad (palm fibre). (Al-Masad 111:5)

Another prediction is the fact that Abu Lahab will die a kaafir and he did die as a kaafir.
He could have easily proven that the Quran is a false book by embracing Islam but he couldn't do so because the Quran is not a fake book.

 c. The Quran is a comprehensive book and it entails everything.

There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)

 d. It is easy to understand and memorise the Quran
There is no other book in the world that is memorised, because of this it is protected

And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)? (Al-Qamar 54:17)

e. There are no ambiguities in the Quran

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

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

The English language is an ambiguous language and is called a pigeon language
If you say 'when the cat jumped on the book it fell off' you don't know what fell off
 f. The Quran was revealed to correct the mistakes of the Rasul (saw)
Surah 8:67 was revealed to correct the mistake of taking captives

It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (Al-Anfal 8:67)

Another is Surah 9:84 which was revealed when he prayed over Abdullah Ibn Ubbay

And never (O Muhammad SAW) pray (funeral prayer) for any of them (hypocrites) who dies, nor stand at his grave. Certainly they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and died while they were Fasiqun (rebellious, - disobedient to Allah and His Messenger SAW). (At-Tawbah 9:84)

Surah 66:1 was revealed when the Prophet made honey haraam on himself to please his wives
O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allah has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (At-Tahrim 66:1)

Surah 80:1 was revealed to correct him when he frowned at the blind man

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

The Prophet used to hasten and recite when Jibreel was revealing the Quran to him and not wait for Jibreel teach him so Allah revealed Surah 75:16-19

Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur'an, O Muhammad SAW) to make haste therewith. (Al-Qiyamah 75:16)

It is for Us to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad SAW) the ability to recite it (the Qur'an), (Al-Qiyamah 75:17)

And when We have recited it to you [O Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel)],
then follow you its (the Qur'an's) recital. (Al-Qiyamah 75:18)

Then it is for Us (Allah) to make it clear to you, (Al-Qiyamah 75:19)

 g. It was revealed to answer the dilemmas of the Rasul (saw)
E.g. when the munafiqs accused Aisha (r.a) of committing zina Allah revealed Surah 24:11 to solve his dilemma

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (An-Nur 24:11)

Allah called it ifk (a big lie)

The Messenger (Muhammad ) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. They say, "We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers" - and they say, "We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all)." (Al-Baqarah 2:285)

The Christians reject Muhammad and the Jews reject Jesus and call him a bastard.
A Christian doesn't have to give up Jesus when he embraces Islam but just needs to alter his creed about Jesus because he says he is God and died on the cross.
 This is done with the zakat system
Allah made it one of the 5 pillars of Islam

 Abu Hurayra said, "When the Messenger of Allah (SAW), died and Abu Bakr was khalifa and those of the Arabs who were going to reject rejected, 'Umar said, 'How can we fight people when the Messenger of Allah said, "I am commanded to fight people until they say, 'There is no god but Allah.' Whoever says that, his property and life are protected from me, except when there is a legal right to them, and his reckoning is up to Allah."?'
 Abu Bakr said, 'By Allah, I will fight anyone who makes a distinction between prayer and zakat! Zakat is the right which is due on wealth. By Allah, if they refuse me a nose- rope which they used to pay to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, I will fight them for refusing it!' 'Umar said, 'By Allah, then I realised that Allah had expanded Abu Bakr's breast in respect of the decision to fight and I recognised that it was the truth." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Those who do not pay their zakat will have their wealth turned into snakes and bite them in their graves.

And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid], and spend it not in the Way of Allah, -announce unto them a painful torment. (At-Tawbah 9:34)

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

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

 Narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir: The Prophet (SAW) said: “The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and compassion is that of one body; when one part of it suffers, the rest of the body joins it in staying awake and suffering fever.” [al-Bukhaari (6011) and Muslim (2586)]
 Abu Musa (RA) reported: ‘Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “The relationship of the believer with another believer is like (the bricks of) a building, each strengthens the other.” He (SAW) illustrated this by interlacing the fingers of both his hands.’ [al-Bukhari (481) and Muslim (2585)]
 It was narrated from Abd-Allaah ibn Masood (RA) that the Prophet (SAW) said: "Whoever starts his day caring about something other than Allaah has nothing to do with Allaah, and whoever does not care about the Muslims is not one of them." [Narrated by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (4/356)]
 If you go to a Hindu temple or Sikh temple you only see Indians there.
 Saeed al-Jurairi narrated Abi Naddra told me of a sermon he heard from the Messenger of Allah (SAW) in middle during the Days of Tashreeq said: “O people, your Lord is One and your father [i.e., Adam] is one. There is no superiority of the Arab over the non-Arab, or of the non-Arab over the Arab, or of the red over the black, or of the black over the red – except with regard to taqwa...” [Musnad Ahmad (5/411) No. 23536]
In some churches in the US you only find whites but during Hajj you see all races, color, class etc
Islam embraces all
The nation of Islam allow blacks only and they call the Whiteman the devil
Both the white and black kuffaar are devils
Malcolm X saw this universality and exposed the NOI
These people follow Elijah Pole who was a pedophile and had a weakness for 13-year-old girls
They killed Malcolm X to silence him
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 Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Al-Hujurat 49:13)
Allah made you into nations and tribes and not in races because there is only one race, the human race
And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Anbiya 21:107)
The first person to embrace Islam was a woman, Khadijah (r.a)
The first to die for Islam was a woman, Sumayyah (r.a)
The greatest scholar of Islam was a woman, Aisha (r.a)
The closest person to the Rasul was woman, Fatimah (r.a)

The person who saved the life of the Rasul in the battle of Uhud was a woman, Umm Ammaara (r.a)

The keeper of the Quran was a woman, Hafsa (r.a)

Al-Shifa bint Abdullah she was a minister of finance in Madinah during the caliphate of Umar (r.a)

Women are allowed to own properties and inherit
Zainab bint Jash (r.a) owned a business in Madinah
She used to give most of her earnings to the poor and so her death was a cause for grief.

 Allah commands you as regards your children's (inheritance); to the male, a portion equal to that of two females; if (there are) only daughters, two or more, their share is two thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is half. For parents, a sixth share of inheritance to each if the deceased left children; if no children, and the parents are the (only) heirs, the mother has a third; if the deceased left brothers or (sisters), the mother has a sixth. (The distribution in all cases is) after the payment of legacies he may have bequeathed or debts. You know not which of them, whether your parents or your children, are nearest to you in benefit, (these fixed shares) are ordained by Allah. And Allah is Ever All¬Knower, All¬Wise. (An-Nisa 4:11)

Women are to be maintained and protected by men

 Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband's absence what Allah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband's property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see ill¬conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great. (An-Nisa 4:34)

Women can't be forced into marriages
 O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse. And live with them honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good. (An-Nisa 4:19)

We are on the Tafseer of the Ayah:

 He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed SAW) hate (it). (As-Saff 61:9)

So because Allah promised Islam a brilliant future in Ayah 9 of this Surah, we have no choice but to discuss this topic
O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well¬Acquainted with what you do. (An-Nisa 4:135)

 This is the Quranic verse that impressed the Americans and they hung it at Harvard
This shows you the justice of Islam. You should be just even against yourself or your family regardless if the person is rich or poor.

People sometimes take sides with the rich man because they expect something in return.
 Ibn Mas'ud was asked (by the people of Iraq), What is rashwa (taking bribes)? He replied, "This is suht (unlawful earning)." They said, "No, we meant in ruling." He then said, "This is the very kufr." Then he recited: "...And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun." (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Tafsir al-Tabari (10/321) No. 11960, Tafsir Ibn Kathir (3/119)]
Ibn Mas'ud called the accepting of bribes by judges as kufr.
In corrupt countries people have to buy justice
Shariah is a serious thing so Allah will never bless us with Shariah unless we have taqwa.
If the judges in the courthouses who are administering justice have no taqwa they will take bribes to punish the wrong people with Shariah law.

The wrong people are going to be punished
You will chop off the hand, head etc of the innocent and let off the guilty therefore Allah (swt) will only give you Shariah if you taqwa.
A tribal, racist, nationalist can never be just because they tend to favour people from their race, tribe and country.

O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you may avoid justice, and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever WellAcquainted with what you do. (An-Nisa 4:135)

This is why Allah said that you should not let your heart diseases (tribalism, racism etc) get the better of you.
People distort their witnesses or evidences in the courts today and Allah warned us against such.
In Syria it is alleged that there has been a chemical usage and many claims and counter claims as been done with one party accusing the other

The UN, who are kuffaar are to determine whether it actually took place but it is a dilemma if we can trust the findings of the kuffaar
This issue may bring about world war 3 Russia, China, North Korea on one side and the USA, KSA, Egypt, Pakistan on the other

 O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well¬Acquainted with what you do. (Al-Ma'idah 5:8)

In Surah 5:8 Allah said:
 This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves. (Aali Imran 3:182)

The other Ayah that speaks about justice is 3:182
The other verse is Surah 60:8-9
 Allah 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, Allah loves those who deal with equity. (Al-Mumtahinah 60:8)

 It is only as regards those who fought against you on account of religion, and have driven you out of your homes, and helped to drive you out, that Allah forbids you to befriend them. And whosoever will befriend them, then such are the Zalimun (wrong-doers those who disobey Allah). (Al-Mumtahinah 60:9)

This verse was revealed for Asma (r.a) who had her kaafir mother visiting her but she treated her badly and Allah (swt) wasn't pleased with her behaviour.
Her mum wasn't antagonistic to Islam
You can only be harsh towards a kaafir if they are antagonistic towards Islam.
You don't have to feel guilty for having kaafir friends as long as they are not antagonistic towards Islam.
Many people take Shahadah through their Muslims friends.
Allah (swt) spoke about justice in a Hadith Qudsi
 On the authority of Abu Dharr al-Ghifaree (RA) from the Prophet (SAW) from his Lord, that He said: O My servants! I have forbidden dhulm (oppression) for Myself, and I have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another... [Sahih Muslim (4/1994) No. 2577]
 Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, "Three prayers are surely answered: the supplication of the oppressed, the supplication of the traveller, and the supplication of the father for his son." [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/502) No. 3448, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/30) No. 3862, Musnad Ahmad (2/258) No. 7501, Sunan Abu Dawud (2/89) No. 1536]
 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)]
Allah is Just and the dua of the oppressed goes directly to Allah with no barrier
 Allah said:
Thus We have made you [true Muslims - real believers of Islamic 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)
Therefore there is no room for extremism in Islam you are in the middle between Jews and Christians.
The Jews call Jesus (as) a bastard and call his mum Mary (as) a whore
The Christians call him God and worship him
'Ummatan Wasatan' also means the just nation.
You are in the middle between the spiritualists and the materialists
The materialist spends all his time in the shop making money and refuses to pray.
The spiritualist spends all his time in the Masjid praying, making dhikr, etc and doesn't work to earn a living.
You are in the middle because you worship Allah but also earn a living.
You are in the middle between the priest and the gigolo.
 DID DA VINCI CODE DRIVE PRIEST TO SUICIDE? “Abbot plunges to his death after reading bestseller”:
The priest refused to get married claiming that he wants to be like Jesus.
A priest committed suicide after the release of the da vinci code but this film was just a lie.
The gigolo practices zina here, there and everywhere in the atmosphere.

 But the Monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allah therewith, but that they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (Al-Hadid 57:27)

Allah called what the priest do as a bid'ah in Surah 57:27
Allah told you in the Quran to have 'fun' (halal fun)
 But seek, with that (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of legal enjoyment in this world, and do good as Allah has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allah likes not the Mufsidun (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts). (Al-Qasas 28:77)

If you are boring and not having fun you are going against the Quran
So you are in the middle between celibacy and promiscuity
 "...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)
And nikkah (marriage) is from the Sunnah so you should get married
It is not good to be a bachelor
  'The worst among you are your bachelors!' (from Abu Ya'la and Tabarani.)
The Hadith about the bachelor maybe weak
You are in the middle between the murji (liberal) and Khawaarij (puritant)
The murji believes that as long as you believe in the Shahadah you are good to go no matter how many sins you commit.
The puritan condemn every Muslims to the hellfire for any sin they commit.
The Christians are murji. They claim as long as you believe in Jesus you will be saved from the hellfire.
 Narrated By 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: During the lifetime of the Prophet there was a man called 'Abdullah whose nickname was Donkey, and he used to make Allah's Apostle laugh. The Prophet lashed him because of drinking (alcohol). And one-day he was brought to the Prophet on the same charge and was lashed. On that, a man among the people said, "O Allah, curse him ! How frequently he has been brought (to the Prophet on such a charge)!" The Prophet said, "Do not curse him, for by Allah, I know for he loves Allah and His Apostle." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 81, Hadith #771]
Human beings are weak and therefore have weakness.
Some have gambling, zina, watching movies etc as weaknesses but you need to know your weaknesses and work on them as Allah told you in Surah Insaan

 Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger having said: “By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, Allah would sweep you out of existence and He would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and He would have pardoned them.” [Sahih Muslim (4/2106) No. 2749]
The only sin that can make you a kaafir is kufr akbar
The khawaarij fail to classify knowledge and so paint all sins with the same brush but to commit zina, drink alcohol etc is a minor kufr and to insult Allah, His Rasul (saw) or His Deen is major kufr
  They Khawaarij quote a Hadith in Bukhari as their Hujjah
 Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "An adulterer, at the time he is committing illegal sexual intercourse is not a believer; and a person, at the time of drinking an alcoholic drink is not a believer; and a thief, at the time of stealing, is not a believer." Ibn Shihab said: 'Abdul Malik bin Abi Bakr bin 'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Harith bin Hisham told me that Abu Bakr used to narrate that narration to him on the authority of Abu Huraira. He used to add that Abu Bakr used to mention, besides the above cases, "And he who robs (takes illegally something by force) while the people are looking at him, is not a believer at the time he is robbing (taking). [al-Bukhari (5578) and Muslim (57)]
The Hadith says he is not a mu'min but he is a Muslim
So if he dies of heart attack whilst on the act he is under the Mercy of Allah
He may forgive him or punish
He will be buried in the graveyard of the Muslims

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)

He will not be in hell forever
 Abu Hurayrah narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The Jews were divided into seventy-one or seventy-two sects, and the Christians were divided into seventy-one or seventy-two sects, and my Ummah will be divided into seventy-three sects.” [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/197) No. 4596, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/25) No. 2640, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/128) No. 3991, Musnad Ahmad (2/332) No. 8377]

 Verily, the hyprocrites will be in the lowest depths (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them. (An-Nisa 4:145)


 The Qadariyyah deny qadr and the jabriyyah blames everything on qadr

Those who took partners (in worship) with Allah will say: "If Allah had willed, we would not have taken partners (in worship) with Him, nor would our fathers, and we would not have forbidden anything (against His Will)." Likewise belied those who were before them, (they argued falsely with Allah's Messengers), till they tasted of Our Wrath. Say: "Have you any knowledge (proof) that you can produce before us? Verily, you follow nothing but guess and you do nothing but lie." (Al-An'am 6:148)

Even the mushirk blame qadr for their shirk.
In Ayah 6:148 they blame qadr for worshipping false deities.
When Salman Rushdie wrote the novel insulting Allah the British people said it was qadr.
That was why he wrote it.
 It is reported that a man stole, he said to Umar: "I stole because this was the Qada’ of Allah (Divine Will of Allah)." Umar said to him: "I am going to chop off your hand because it was the Qada’ of Allah (Divine Will of Allah)." [Ibn Taymiyyah in ‘Minhaj as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah’ (3/234)]
If you have a 15-year-old daughter and a man raped and killed her will you blame it on qadr and say he should be set free?
 Ata' bin Abi Rabah said, "I went to Ibn 'Abbas and found him drawing water from the well of Zamzam. The bottom of his clothes was wet with the water of Zamzam and I said to him, 'They talked about Al-Qadar (some denied it).' He asked, 'Have they done this?' I said, 'Yes.' He said, 'By Allah! This Ayah was revealed only about them, ("Taste you the touch of Hell!" Verily, We have created all things with Qadar.) They are the worst members of this Ummah. Do not visit those who fall ill among them or pray the Funeral prayer for those among them who die. If I saw one of them, I would pluck out his eyes with these two fingers of mine." [Tafsir Ibn Kathir (7/483), Tafsir Ibn Abi Hatim (10/3321) No. 18715, Ithaf al-Khiyarah al-Maharah al-Busayri (6/280) No. 5846, its narrators are Thiqat (trustworthy)]
 Jabir (RA) narrated the Messenger (SAW) said: "Two kinds of people will not receive my intercession (on the Day of Judgment) the Qadariyah and the Murji’a." [al-Tabarani in 'al-Mu’jam al-Awsat' (6/69) No. 5817]
 Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Two groups of my Ummah have no share in Islam the Murji'a and the Qadariyah." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/454) No. 2149 and Sunan Ibn Majah (1/42) No. 62]
 Narrated by Ibn Abbas who related “The first thing which Allah created was the Pen, and He said to it, ‘Write.’ It responded, ‘What should I write?’ He said, ‘Write everything that will occur until the Day of Resurrection.’ (Abu Dawood 4700)
The murji and the qadariyyah have no portion in the hereafter
 The mu'tazilites are the rationalists

And when you (Muhammad SAW) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qur'an) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shaitan (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.). (Al-An'am 6:68)

The first mu'tazilite was iblis because he refused to bow down to Adam

 (Allah) said: "What prevented you (O Iblis) that you did not prostrate, when I commanded you?" Iblis said: "I am better than him (Adam), You created me from fire, and him You created from clay." (Al-A'raf 7:12)

Another famous mu'tazilite is the son of Nuh (as) his aql told him that the mountain was tall enough to save him from the punishment of Allah.

 The son replied: "I will betake myself to a mountain, it will save me from the water." Nuh (Noah) said: "This day there is no saviour[] from the Decree of Allah except him on whom He has mercy." And a wave came in between them, so he (the son) was among the drowned. (Hud 11:43)

 Ali (RA) observed, "If the religion was based on opinion, the bottom of the sock would take preference in being wiped to the top of the sock." [Related by Abu Dawud (1/90) No. 162 and ad-Daraqutni (1/378) No. 783 with a hassan or sahih chain.]
 This Deen is not based on aql
 Jundub ibn Abdullah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If any one speaks on the Qur’an giving his own opinion and even if he is correct, he has done wrong.” [Sunan at-Tirmdhi (Vol. 5, pg.201) No. 2953, Sunan Abu Dawud (Vol. 2, pg. 344) No. 3652]
 Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “He who speaks on the Qur’an without possessing knowledge must assume his seat in the Fire.” [Musnad Ahmad (Vol. 1, pg. 269) No. 2429, Sunan at-Tirmdhi (Vol. 5, pg.198) No. 2950, Abu Eesa al-Tirmidhi said: this hadeeth is hasan]
The Hanbalis prefer a weak Hadith to the aql and the Hanafis prefer the aql to the weak Hadith
Jews are mu'tazilites because they prefer the Talmud over the Torah. The Talmud was written from their aql while the Torah was revealed by Allah.
We continue on explaining how we are in the middle way

The mu'tazilite prefers his aql over the text and the first mu'tazilite was Iblis
The son of Nuh (as) and the Jews are also Mu'tazilites
The Goofy Sufis on the other hand practise blind following
Three so-called Muslims blindly follow their Shaikhs and say that they are infallible
They are the Sufis, the Shias and the Madkhalis
Bin Baaz passed a fatwa allowing the Americans a military base in KSA and this is used even today to kill Muslims
The drone that killed Imam Anwar (rh) was launched from there

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

When Allah (swt) told the angels that HE was going to create man they questioned Him
So who are these Shaikhs that they can't be questioned?
In Battle of Badr, the Prophet (SAW) and his Companions were deployed in the nearest place to Badr's wells. But Companion Hubab ibn al-Mundhir (RA) was not satisfied with this. With great politeness he said: "O Messenger of Allah (SAW), has Allah inspired you to choose this very spot or is it stratagem of war and the product of consultation?" The Prophet (SAW) replied: "It is stratagem of war and consultation." Al-Hubab said: "This place is no good; let us go and encamp on the nearest water well and make a basin or reservoir full of water, then destroy all the other wells so that they will be deprived of the water." The Prophet (SAW) approved of his plan and agreed to carry it out. [Ibn Hisham: al-Sirah al-Nabawiyyah, 1/620; Ibn Kathir: al-Sirah al-Nabawiyyah, 2/402; al-Suhayli: al-Rawd al-Anif, 3/62; and al-Tabary: Tarikh al-Umam wa al-Muluk, 2-29]
Hubab Ibn Mundhir questioned the Rasul (saw) in the battle of Badr and the Rasul went with his opinion
In some communities it is strange to ask questions to Shaikhs
When I was in South Africa they saw it strange that I entertained questions
In Swaziland they say their Shaikhs don't stay in anything less than 5 star hotels


 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)

So if you are in a marriage you should have love, care, mercy, and chemistry
There should be spiritual compatibility too
You should have the aqeedah and manhaj
Your fiqh should be same too to avoid fitnah in the house
 "...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 Rasul said that marriage is his Sunnah

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (RA) narrated : We went out with Allah’s Messenger (SAW) while we were young men and we were unable to do anything (that is, not even afford marriage). He said, “O Group of young men! It is incumbent that you marry for it protects the eye and the private parts. So, he among you who cannot marry, let him fast, for, fasting dries up (lust)”. [Tirmidhi 1083, Ahmed 4023, Bukhari 1905, Muslim 1400, Abu Dawud 2046, Nisai 3206, Ibn e Majah 1845]
A pious wife is one of the good things of the dunya
 It was narrated that Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas said: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “There are four things that are essential for happiness: a righteous wife, a spacious home, a good neighbour and a sound means of transportation. And there are four things that make one miserable: a bad neighbour, a bad wife, a small house and a bad means of transportation.” [Narrated by Ibn Hibban in al-Saheehah (Vol. 9, pg.340) No. 4032]
 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 peoples 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]
 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)]
You should marry the woman with Deen or else you will be a loser
 It was narrated that Sa’eed ibn Jubayr said: Ibn ‘Abbas said to me: “Have you gotten married?” I said: “No.” He said: “Get married, for the best of this ummah are the ones with the most wives.” [Sahih Bukhari (7/3) No. 5069]
 'The worst among you are your bachelors!' (from Abu Ya'la and Tabarani.)
 It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet (SAW) said: “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock. The ruler is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock; the man is the shepherd of his family members and is responsible for them; the woman is the shepherd of her husband’s house and children and is responsible for them; the slave is the shepherd of his master’s wealth and is responsible for it. Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock.” [al-Bukhari #853 and Muslim #1829]
In Islam everyone has rights
In the marriage everyone has his or her rights preserved
This is why many kuffaar women are embracing Islam
Marriage is fard on the one with needs else it is Sunnah upon you
 Anas Ibn Malik narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “When a person gets married he has completed half of his religion, so let him fear Allah with regard to the other half.” [al-Bayhaqi narrated in Shu’ab al-Eemaan (7/340) No. 5100]
Your marriage makes you or breaks you and it is half your Deen
 Anas Ibn Malik (RA) reported the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Whomever Allah blesses with a righteous wife, He has helped him with half of his religion, so let him fear Allah with regard to the other half." [Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/175) No. 2681 and Shu’ab al-Eemaan al-Bayhaqi (7/341) No. 5101]
So if you have sexual needs and delay marriage then you are living in sin
You are not allowed to delay marriage
Ali ibn Abu Talib (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said to him, “O Ali, Three things you should not postpone: the prayer when the hour for it arrives, the funeral when it is ready, and (the marriage of) an unmarried woman when you find a suitable match for her.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (1/320) No. 171, al-Tarikh al-Kabir al-Bukhari (1/177) No. 538, Musnad Ahmad (1/105) No. 828, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/176) No. 2686]
 Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “When a man proposes marriage and you are pleased with his religion and his character then marry (your daughter) to him. If you do not do it then there would be mischief on earth and much corruption”. [Tirmidhi 1086, Ibn e Majah 1967]
Marriage is between a male and a female and not the same sexes
There are many shows on tv which seeks to corrupt people

 The programme was also at the centre of a controversy when American televangelist and conservative pundit Jerry Falwell claimed in 1999 that Tinky Winky, one of the Teletubbies, was a homosexual role model for children. Falwell based this conclusion on the character's purple colour and triangular antenna; both the colour purple and the triangle are sometimes used as symbols of the Gay Pride movement.

It is a comprehensive religion and therefore Allah said in Surah 5:3 that He has perfected Islam

 This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3)

Islam caters for your every need whether physical or spiritual
It caters for you in every aspect
The kuffaar fear nothing but Islam
There is no political system, judicial system or economic system in Christianity
But we have all these systems in Islam
There is nothing like a kaafir of a lesser degree

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

You are either Muslims, kaafir or a munafiq and nothing in between
So whatever label you may have it must fall under one of these
 Abu Huraira (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said: "A believer is not bitten from the same hole twice.” [Related by al-Bukhari (6133) and Muslim (2998)]

 You are not allowed to open a bedroom door before you knock

 Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri: While I was present in one of the gatherings of the Ansar, Abu Musa came as if he was scared, and said, "I asked permission to enter upon 'Umar three times, but I was not given the permission, so I returned." (When 'Umar came to know about it) he said to Abu Musa, "Why did you not enter?'.
 Abu Musa replied, "I asked permission three times, and I was not given it, so I returned, for Allah's Apostle said, "If anyone of you asks the permission to enter thrice, and the permission is not given, then he should return.'"
 'Umar said, "By Allah! We will ask Abu Musa to bring witnesses for it." (Abu Musa went to a gathering of the Ansar and said). "Did anyone of you hear this from the Prophet?" Ubai bin Ka'b said, "By Allah, none will go with you but the youngest of the people (as a witness)." (Abu Sa'id) was the youngest of them, so I went with Abu Musa and informed 'Umar that the Prophet had said so. [al-Bukhari (6245) and Muslim (2153)]
 Malik related to me from Safwan ibn Sulaym from Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), was questioned by a man who said, "Messenger of Allah, shall I ask permission of my mother to enter?" He said, "Yes " The man said, "I live with her in the house". The Messenger of Allah (SAW), said "Ask her permission." The man said, "I am her servant." The Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "Ask her permission. Do you want to see her naked?" He said, "No." He said, "Then ask her permission." [Maliks Muwatta, Book 54, Hadith #001]
Your wife is not allowed to open the door to a strange man when she is alone
 It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Beware of entering upon women.” A man from among the Ansar said: “O Messenger of Allah, what about the brother-in-law?” He said: “The brother-in-law is death.” [al-Bukhari (5232) and Muslim (2172)]
This is the beauty of Islam and so Muslim men don't worry about their wives committing zina
She won't even open it for the brother in law

 Aisha reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Any woman who gets married without the permission of her guardian, her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid. But if the marriage is consummated then the mahr is hers because she has allowed him to be intimate with her. If they dispute, then the ruler is the guardian of the one who has no guardian.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (3/399-400) No. 1102, Musnad Ahmad (6/47) No. 24251, Sunan Abu Dawud (2/229) No. 2083, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/77) No. 1879]
  Muslim women don't give themselves away in marriage but have their walis do so
 Abu Saeed (RA) reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) said, It is not lawful for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day that she travel (alone) on a journey of three days except that she is accompanied by her father, her brother, her husband, her son or a mahram (besides them). [Tirmidhi 1172, Ahmed 41515, Muslim 1340, Abu Dawud 17, Ibn e Majah 2898]
Muslim women are not allowed to travel alone for more than 24 hours without a mahram and if she should fly, the journey should not be more than 24 hours and also there should be a mahram to pick her up from the airport.
This will protect her from rape and preserve her honour
In countries that have no Shariah rape is rife because women travel by themselves

 Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab: The Prophet said, "...Whenever a man is alone with a woman the Devil makes a third..." [Musnad Ahmad (1/26) No. 177, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/465) No. 2165, Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/197) No. 387, Sahih Ibn Hibban (12/399) No. 5586, Nasa'i in 'Sunan al-Kubra' (5/387) No. 9219]
Islam doesn't allow Khalwa (seclusion) between a man and woman
We always see in the news that women from Europe and America being killed
 Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “It is unlawful for a woman who believes in Allah and the last day that she travels the distance of one day and one night without a Mahram accompanying her.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, no. 1038)
In other countries like Kenya, Thailand etc these women travelled without a mahram and so were not protected
These countries are poor and so people are desperate
Poverty makes people do evil things
 Anas Ibn Malik narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Poverty, in all probability, leads to unbelief (kufr)...” [al-Bayhaqi narrated in 'Shu’ab al-Eemaan' (9/12) No. 6188 and Abu Na'eem narrated in 'Hileeyat al-Awwleeyah' (3/109)]
It is only in Islam that the concept of a mahram is found
In all the other religions there is nothing as such


The 6 sacred things are:
1. Life
2. Your Honour
3. Your wealth
4. Your Aql
5. Your Lineage
6. your deen

The countries with highest rate of crime: murder, theft, etc are all kaafir countries
The suicide rate is highest in the kaafir countries; therefore only the Islamic Shariah can protect from all these things.

And there is (a saving of) life for you in Al-Qisas (the Law of Equality in punishment), O men of understanding, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V.2:2). (Al-Baqarah 2:179)

Islam protects your life by carrying out capital punishment for the murderer (Surah 2:179)
It protects your wealth by cutting off the hand of the thief (Surah 5:38)

 Cut off (from the wrist joint) the (right) hand of the thief, male or female, as a recompense for that which they committed, a punishment by way of example from Allah. And Allah is AllPowerful, AllWise. (Al-Ma'idah 5:38)
It protects you lineage by stoning the adulterer to death
It protects your aql by executing the drug smugglers (Surah 5:33)

The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. (Al-Ma'idah 5:33)

It protects your honour by flogging the slanderer 80 lashes
It protects your Deen by killing the zindeeq

 'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habeeb Ibn Abee Habeeb on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather [who] said: I witnessed Khaalid Ibn 'Abdullah Al-Qasree - and he addressed them at Waasit - "Oh People, make sacrifice, may Allah accept it from you. Verily I am sacrificing Al-Ja'd Ibn Dirham, for indeed he claims that Allah did not take Ibrahim as a khaleel (close friend), and [that] He did not speak to Moosa. Most Perfect is He and exalted is He from what Al-Ja'd says." Then he descended and slaughtered him. I say: And the Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah speak with this, and they distort the text of the revelation regarding that, and they claim that the Lord is purified of that (i.e. having spoken to Moses and taken Ibrahim as a khalil). [Mukhtasar al-Uluww of adh-Dhahabi, (p.134)]
We kill the false prophets just like how Musaylamah was killed
He was killed by Wahshi, the same one who killed Hamza (r.a)
 On the authority of Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him." [Sahih Bukhari (4/61) No. 3017, Musnad Ahmad (1/322) No. 2968, Sunan al-Nasa'i (7/104) No. 4059, Sunan Ibn Majah (3/574) No. 2535, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/126) No. 4351, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/59) No. 1458]
 They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliya' (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allah (to Muhammad SAW). But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya' (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them. (An-Nisa 4:89)

QUESTION 1: If a Muslim woman does wudu before leaving for work in the morning and doesn't break it by going to the bathroom, passing gas, etc., is her wudu broken by her not wearing hijab  around men? does she need to do wudu again before putting on hijab and doing salat because non mahram men saw her? In sum, does non-mahram men seeing a woman without her hijab (mainly headscarf) break her wudu? Next, if a muslim woman wears makeup for work, does she need to remove her makeup in order to do wudu in order to do salat? Is a woman's salat still accepted if she has makeup on?

When a non-mahram sees you without hijab this doesn't break your wudu
But if you touch him deliberately then your wudu is broken
Wearing make-up doesn't make your Salah baatil but it is sinful to display your beauty to a non-mahram
QUESTION 2: Is an Aunt Mahram for Us, (i.e. mother brothers wife’s)?

Yes they are mahram for you so you can't marry them
 QUESTION 3: As salaamu alaykum Sheikh. May Allah protect you. I have a two-part question. a.) Are we allowed to return salaams to a shia, before investigating further if they are zaidiyyah or rafida (may the curse of Allah be upon them). b.) Are we allowed to return salaams of someone who identifies himself as Muslim, but does not pray? (May Allah guide them)
 Answer 3:
 Someone asked Ibn Uyaynah, “Are we allowed to greet the disbelievers.” He said, 'Yes. Allah has said, Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and drove you not out from your homes (Al-Mumtahinah 60:8). And also He said, Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim (Al-Mumtahinah 60:4). And Ibrahim said to his father: (Salaamun 'alayka). Al-Qurtubi said that the most obvious thing about this verse is what Sufyan Ibn Uyaynah had said about it.
 There are two views about it. According to a report from Abu Hurayrah, the Prophet said: “Do not salute the Jews and Christians first, and when you meet them on the road, force them to go to the narrowest part of it.” [Sahih Muslim (2167)]
 It is reported in both al-Bukhari (6254) and Muslim (1798), on the authority of Usamah Ibn Zaid, who said, “The Prophet rode on a donkey, with a saddle underneath which there was a thick soft Fadakiya velvet sheet. Usamah Ibn Zaid was his companion rider, and he was going to pay a visit to Sa'd bin Ubadah (who was sick) at the dwelling place of Bani Al-Harith bin Al-Khazraj; this incident happened before the battle of Badr. The Prophet passed by a gathering in which there were Muslims, pagan idolators and Jews, and among them there was 'Abdullah Ibn Ubay Ibn Salul and Abdullah Ibn Rawahah. Then a cloud of dust raised by the animal covered that gathering, 'Abdullah Ibn Ubay covered his nose with his Rida (sheet) and said (to the Prophet), “Don't cover us with dust.” The Prophet greeted them.” (the Hadith)
 Al-Qurtubi remarks, “The first Hadith indicates that we should not greet them first since this is a mark of respect and this is not fitting for disbelievers; however, the second Hadith permits us to do so.” At-Tabari said, “Usamah's account does not contradict the report of Abu Hurayrah, neither does the one diverge from the other. Abu Hurayrah's report illustrates the general rule, while Usamah's account indicates the exception. An-Nakha'ee said, “If you have some business with a Jew or a Christian, then greet him first.”
 The meaning of Abu Hurayrah's account “Do not salute the Jews and Christians first,” is then further qualified with, 'if you don't have any reason to do so.’ That is, if you have no pressing need of them or business with them, and if it is a friend, a neighbour or a traveller, whose right is it that you should greet him. At-Tabari adds, “It has been related that the Salaf used to greet the People of the Book. Thus, Ibn Mas'ud greeted a headman, whom he accompanied on his journey. 'Alqamah then asked him, “Abu Abdur-Rahman, is it not abominable to greet them first?” Ibn Mas'ud said, “Yes, but it is also the right of companionship.”
 Al-Awzaa'ee said, “If you greet them, then better men than you have also done so, but if you do not greet them, better men than you have done this before.” Hassan al-Basri is reported to have said, “If you happen to pass by a group of people, some of whom are Muslims and some of whom are disbelievers, greet them.” [Tafseer al-Qurtubi (11/111-112)]
You can return the salam of the one who doesn't pray as a gesture to encourage him to return to Islam
If you are not sure of the shia's creed return the salam.
