Notes by Sic Semper Tyrannis_, AuthenticTauheed6 &AuthenticTauheed7
He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism), and teaching them the Book (this Qur'an, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad SAW). And verily, they had been before in mainfest error; (Al-Jumu'ah 62:2)
The Book here means Quran -- Hikmah here is Wisdom, which is the Sunnah.
They were in clear error before this because they left off the teachings of Abraham. They abandoned the Tawheed of Abraham and adopted kufr and shirk as their newfound religion.
They abandoned Tawheed and exchanged it for paganism.
A man named Luay ibn Amr came back from Syria with an idol called Hubal, he put it down in front of the Arabs and said 'this is your god from now on'
Imam Ahmad recorded that 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud said that the Prophet said, (The first to start the practice of Sa'ibah and worshipping idols was Abu Khuza'ah, 'Amr bin 'Amir. I saw him pulling his intestines behind him in the Fire.) [Musnad Ahmad (1/446) No. 4258; Sho'aib Arna'oot commented: Sahih because of corroborating evidence, and its isnad is daeef]
The 'Amr mentioned in the above Hadith is the son of Luhay bin Qam'ah, one of the chiefs of the tribe of Khuza'ah who were the caretakers of the House of Allah after the tribe of Jurhum, (and before the Prophet's tribe, Quraysh). He was the first to change the religion of Ibrahim (Al-Khalil in Makkah) bringing idol worshipping to the area of Hijaz (Western Arabia). He also called the foolish people to worship idols and offer sacrifices to them and started these ignorant rituals concerning the animals as well as other rituals of Jahiliyyah. [Tafseer Ibn Katheer (3/209)]
So Allah said 'you were before the coming of Muhammad (saw) in clear error because you were at each others throats i.e. war of attrition'
They used to eat dead meat, and would make tawaf around Kabah naked, and would bury the girl children alive.
The Prophet (saw) said: any man who has two daughters and he looked after them, will be with me in paradise.
Jabir ibn 'Abdullah reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW), said, "Anyone who has three daughters and provides for them, clothes them and shows mercy to them will definitely enter the Garden." A man from the people said, "And two daughters, Messenger of Allah?" He said, "And two." [al-Adab al-Mufrad, al-Bukhari, No. 78]
Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri The Prophet (SAW) said: 'If anyone cares for three daughters, disciplines them, marries them, and does good to them, he will go to Paradise.' [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/338) No. 5147]
The Prophet (saw) said: show mercy to them, because if you do not show love to your daughters she will become emotionally destroyed.
It will then be easy for her to be manipulated.
These type of girls always suffer teenage pregnancy, as they did not get love at home.
So the Arabs were in manifest error because of their practices.
Some women would do business (prostitution).
They would put a flag in their yard, and when people came into Makkah they knew that this woman was doing 'business'.
But the worst thing they did was to worship 360 idols inside and outside of the Kabah
These Arabs are hypocrites.
Every kaafir is a hypocrite and every hypocrite is a kafir.
When they came to Hudaybiyyah to sign a treaty with the Prophet (saw), which was a historic treaty, the Prophet put at the top of the paper: Bismillahir RahmaniRahim
They said: who is Rahman and Raheem?
They wanted it scratched of and wanted ONE god to be put on the paper because Prophet Abraham (a.s) taught them to worship One God.
So they insisted to see one god on the paper, they told the Prophet (saw) to scratch out Rahman and Raheem... so if you know there is only one God why did you worship 360 idols? Its easy to checkmate a kaafir, because every kaafir is a hypocrite and every hypocrite is a kaafir
The Prophet (saw) went into the cave of Hira to contemplate and meditate about the miserable, appalling, pathetic state of the people.
He would go especially in Ramadan.
He would contemplate: is there a cure for the sickness of my people?
Because Allah said: they are in manifest error
The angel came to him while he was in the cave and said : Iqra , READ
Muhammad peace be upon said: I cannot read and Surah Alaq was revealed
This night was the night of Power, the night in which the Quran was revealed
The majority of scholars say that this night was the 27th of Ramadan
And when the Prophet went to Isra wal Miraj, it was the 27th of Rajab
Allah swt said: the Quran is the Kitab - and the Quran undoubtedly is the greatest miracle of Muhammad (saw).
The Hikmah is the Sunnah, so the Prophet peace be upon him was very wise.
The Quran is the textbook of the Arabic language; it holds no mistakes or discrepancies.
An example of Prophet’s wisdom:
Madinah was awash with hypocrites, so when the Prophet sent a battalion to go on a raid, he would choose an Ameer and would give the Ameer a letter, the Prophet (saw) would say: don’t open the letter until you reach a particular spot.
So neither the battalion nor the Ameer knew where the Prophet (saw) was sending them.
Once they reached a particular spot the letter would instruct them where to go from there.
Why did the Prophet (saw) do this?
He did this so the hypocrites could not spy and tip off the enemy.
Another example of the Hikmah of the Prophet (saw):
The angel Jibreel came to the Prophet (saw) and told him all of the names of the hypocrites in Madinah.
Umar ibn al khattab said: since Jibreel came and told you the names of the hypocrites, give me the permission to chop off their heads.
The Prophet (saw) said: do you want the people to say Muhammad is killing his own companions?
And, this would cause Islam not to spread - because people who would like to take their Shahadah, would refuse - they would say: look, Muhammad is brutal and is killing his own companions because hypocrites would pray with the Prophet (saw) in the Masjid
Some went to battle for fame, money etc
Umar hated hypocrisy, so he was desperate to chop off their heads to cleanse the Ummah of their hypocrisy.
Narrated Jabir: 'We were in the company of the Prophet in a Ghazwa. A large number of emigrants joined him and among the emigrants there was a person who used to play jokes (or play with spears); so he (jokingly) stroked an Ansari man on the hip. The Ansari got so angry that both of them called their people. The Ansari said, "Help, O Ansar!" And the emigrant said "Help, O emigrants!" The Prophet came out and said, "What is wrong with the people (as they are calling) this call of the period of Ignorance? "Then he said, "What is the matter with them?" So he was told about the stroke of the emigrant to the Ansari. The Prophet said, "Stop this (i.e. appeal for help) for it is an evil call."
Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul (a hypocrite) said, "The emigrants have called and (gathered against us); so when we return to Medina, surely, the more honorable people will expel there from the meaner," Upon that 'Umar said, "O Allah's Prophet! Shall we not kill this evil person (i.e. 'Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul)?" The Prophet) said, "(No), lest the people should say that Muhammad used to kill his companions."' [al-Bukhari (4/183) and Muslim (2584)]
But the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam was wise, because Abdullah in Ubayy pretended to be a Muslim but he was a hypocrite. He started the slander of Aisha, saying she had an affair.
Then Allah revealed an Ayah saying she did not have an affair.
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 said, that what they said about Aisha is an Ifk (a big lie)
Who started the rumour? Abdullah ibn Ubayy
Another example of the Prophets Wisdom:
A man said to the Prophet (saw): I would like to become Muslim but I cannot stop stealing.
If a kaafir came to you and said I want to take Shahadah but I cannot stop stealing, many of you would say get lost.
The Prophet (saw) gave the man the Shahadah
Every day the Prophet (saw) would ask him: what did you steal today? One day he would say firewood, other day lamb, etc - he kept admitting to the Prophet (saw) what he did.
The man would admit on a daily basis what he stole, and he felt very embarrassed and ashamed, and then he abandoned stealing.
Abu Umamah (RA) saying that a young man came to the Prophet (SAW) and said, "O Messenger of Allah! Give me permission to commit Zina (unlawful sex).'' The people surrounded him and rebuked him, saying, "Stop! Stop!'' But the Prophet said, "(Come close)". The young man came to him, and he said, "(Sit down)", so he sat down. The Prophet said, "(Would you like it (unlawful sex) for your mother?)" He said, "No, by Allah, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their mothers!)"
Another example of the Prophet’s (saw) wisdom:
A young man came to the Prophet (saw) and said: give me permission to commit fornication. The Sahabahs were appalled by this man -- this man asked for a Ruksa (permission).
The Prophet (saw) said: would you like anyone to commit zina with your sister, your mother, and your daughter? He said: no. The Prophet (saw) said: likewise the males of the Ummah, they do not like men to commit zina with their sisters, mothers, etc
After the Prophet (saw) explained to them the ramifications of zina, no one hated zina more than this man.
The Prophet (saw) was very wise, patient, and very merciful.
The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your daughter?)" He said, "No, by Allah, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their daughters!)" The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your sister?)" He said, "No, by Allah, may I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their sisters!)"
The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your paternal aunt?)" He said, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger! May I be ransomed for you.'' The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their paternal aunts!)" The Prophet said, "(Would you like it for your maternal aunt?)" He said, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Messenger! May I be ransomed for you.''
The Prophet said, "(Neither do the people like it for their maternal aunts!)" Then the Prophet put his hand on him and said, "(O Allah, forgive his sin, purify his heart and guard his chastity.)" After that the young man never paid attention to anything of that nature. [Musnad Ahmad, (Vol. 5, pg. 256) No. 22265]
An Ayah to prove the Prophet's (saw) mercy:
And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harshhearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allah's) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Aali Imran 3:159)
When the Sahabahs disobeyed him at the battle of uhud, and even Hamza was killed, the Prophet (saw) was soft and gentle in correcting them.
Abu Huraira (RA) reported: Woman has been created from a rib and will in no way be straightened for you; so if you wish to benefit by her, benefit by her while crookedness remains in her. And if you attempt to straighten her, you will break her, and breaking her is divorcing her. [Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Hadith #3467]
The Prophet (saw) said: be kind and gentle towards the women, because women were created from the uppermost rib.
Not every man can keep up with the weaknesses of the women, nor tolerate it
Every week in the UK, at least 2 or 3 women are killed.
An example of a weakness found in women: it is hard for them to keep secrets.
The women, some of them, let the secret out if they know it will cause fitna and bloodshed
Another weakness is: when they are supposed to leave the house for an appointment, they take a lot of time to get ready.
This applies to only some women.
Another weakness of women: a man can have one pair of shoes and wear it for one year, and he does not care what people think but a woman, at times, needs 6 pairs of shoes as women look down on other women.
(Speaking from Shaikh's experience)
Some women flirt to test their husband’s jealousy, to see if he is a dayyouth
The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam was very very wise - and because of this, his dawah was successful.
The kuffar say the most successful man in history was Muhammad (saw).
He was successful in the political, domestic and military, etc aspects.
He was the only man in life to successfully combine all the aspects of life, Allah said in Surah 33:21
Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad SAW) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much. (Al-Ahzab 33:21)
And He has sent him (Prophet Muhammad SAW) also to others among them (Muslims) who have not yet joined them (but they will come). And He (Allah) is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (Al-Jumu'ah 62:3)
Ayah 3 indicates that at this particular moment in time, the followers of the Prophet (saw) were Arabs
But soon non-Arabs would join him, like Salman al Farisi a Persian
Suhayb ar Rumi, a roman.
One day the Prophet (saw) was sitting with the Sahabahs and said: I hope to be with my brothers. The companions said: we are your brothers! The Prophet said: no you are my companions, but those who are my brothers will come after me and will believe in me without seeing me.
The Prophets are ghaib, unseen for us, but we believe in them.
Anas Ibn Malik (RA) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: I wish that I could meet my brothers. The Sahabah asked: Are we not your brothers? He replied: You are my companions, but my brothers are those who will believe in me without having seen me. (Ahmed)
That is the Grace of Allah, which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Mighty Grace. (Al-Jumu'ah 62:4)
What is the Tafseer of Ayah 4?
The grace that Allah is talking about here is Prophethood.
What Allah is saying is you cannot tell Me who to bless.
The kuffaar of Makkah was telling Allah who to bless, they wondered why Waleed ibn al Mugheera was not blessed with Prophethood.
You have to shut up and accept Qadr Allah.
Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) nor Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, idolaters, polytheists, pagans, etc.) like that there should be sent down unto you any good from your Lord. But Allah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the Owner of Great Bounty. (Al-Baqarah 2:105)
They used to say: why did Allah NOT reveal the Quran to the two strong men of the two mighty cities
The two mighty cities are Makkah and Ta'if.
You cannot tell Allah whom to bless.
Kuffaar are dictators; they even want to dictate to Allah who they want to be a Prophet!
When the Jews asked for a King, Allah said: I am sending Saul as your king
They said: why Saul? He is poor and only has one mule
Prophet Samuel was with them at the time.
The Jews, way before Muhammad (saw) was born, was telling Allah who to make as king likewise, when Allah sent Muhammad (saw) as a messenger, they grumbled and complained.
Kaffirs are dictators, they even want to dictate to Allah who to bless.
This Ayah also means: Al- Hidayah
Guidance - the mercy and grace of Allah, which is mentioned here is Al-Hidayah (divine guidance)
The most precious thing in your life is Al-Hidayah
Because when you recite Surah Fatihah 17 times day, you say: guide us to the straight path
Those who gain Allah’s wrath are the Jews and those who are astray are the Christians
Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “Two characterstics cannot combine in a hypocrite: good character and an understanding of religion.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/49) No. 2684, al-Thiqat Ibn Hibban (8/227) No. 13149, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (8/75) No. 8010, al-Madkhal ila al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (pg. 256) No. 357]
“I complained to Wakee’ of my poor memory. Leaving sins is what he guided me to address. He informed me that knowledge is a light. And Allah’s light is not gifted to those who transgress.” [Diwan ash-Shafi'i]
The other Grace of Allah in this Ayah is Hikmah
So to have knowledge, but no Hikmah is a recipe for disaster.
When Imam Shafi'i was in Baghdad he passed a fatwa but in Egypt he passed a different fatwa for the same question - because he did not have just book knowledge but had knowledge with Hikmah.
He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding. (Al-Baqarah 2:269)
What is the definition of Hikmah?
Hikmah is to do the right things at the right time in the right manner and at the right place .
The other Grace of Allah is: Good health
The other grace of Allah is : Wealth
It is very easy to know what the Grace of Allah is which He is talking about
Muhammad peace be upon him said: you cannot enter paradise until four questions are answered.
Your wealth and how you spent it, and your body and how you exhausted it (whether with halal or haram), your knowledge and how it was used and utilized - did you preach the Haqq or did you use your knowledge for kufr?
Abu Barzah Aslami (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “(On the Day of Resurrection) the feet of a slave will not move till he is asked about his life how he spent it; and about his knowledge, what he did with it, and about his wealth, how he earned it and on what he used it, and about his body, in what way he wore it off.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/614) No. 2417 and Sunan al-Darime (1/144) No. 537]
All these things mentioned in the Hadith are in the category of the Grace of Allah - thus you will be asked about it on the Day of Judgment
One day the Prophet peace be upon him left his house hungry and starving, so did Abu Bakr and Umar - hoping that somebody from the Ansar would invite them for food.
They went to the house of an Ansar - and the man of the house said: SubhanAllah I have in my house the Prophet (saw), Abu Bakr, and Umar - he slaughtered a sheep for them.... after they ate the Prophet (saw), said: on the Day of Judgment you will be asked about this meal.
Abu Huraira reported that Allah's Messenger (SAW) went out (of his house) one day or one night, and there he found Abu Bakr and 'Umar also. He said: What has brought you out of your houses at this hour? They said: Allah's Messenger, it is hunger. Thereupon he said: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, what has brought you out has brought me out too; get up.
They got up along with him and (all of them) came to the house of an Ansari, but he was not at home. When his wife saw him she said: Most welcome, and Allah's Messenger (SAW) said to her: Where is so and so? She said: He has gone to get some fresh water for us. When the Ansari came and he saw Allah's Messenger (SAW) and his two Companions, he said: Praise be to Allah, no one has more honourable guests today than I (have). He then went out and brought them a bunch of ripe dates, dry dates and fresh dates, and said: Eat some of them. He then took hold of his long knife (for slaughtering a goat or a sheep). Allah's Messenger (SAW) said to him: Beware of killing a milch animal. He slaughtered a sheep for them and after they had eaten of it and of the bunch and drank, and when they had taken their fill and had been fully satisfied with the drink, Allah's Messenger (SAW) said to Abu Bakr and Umar: By Him in Whose Hand is my life, you will certainly be questioned about this bounty on the Day of judgment. Hunger brought you out of your house, then you did not return until this bounty came to you. [Sahih Muslim, Book 23, Hadith #5055]
On the Day of Judgment you will be asked about all of your pleasures of the flesh.
Why did Shaikh quote the Hadith?
The Shaikh quoted the Hadith to prove to you that on the Day of Judgement, all the pleasures of the flesh will be asked about.
The last Prophet that will enter paradise is Sulaiman because he was the richest Prophet; therefore he has more of Allah's grace to give account for on the Day of Judgment.
The first Prophet to enter Paradise will be Prophet Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa salam.
The other Grace of Allah: righteous companions
Because of that, the Prophet (saw), said: marriage is half of your Deen
It is so important , it is HALF of your Deen
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]
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]
And because marriage is so important, Allah said in Surah 30:21:
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect. (Ar-Rum 30:21)
"...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 other grace of Allah: your kids
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.(Ar-Rum 30:21) Yusuf Ali
Mankind is divided up into 5 categories in regards to kids
Narrated by ‘Aishah that the Prophet said: “The most despicable person to Allah is one who is harshly argumentative." [al-Bukhari (2457) and Muslim (2668)]
The most disgusting person in the sight of Allah is the man who is garrulous
Do not marry people who are harshly argumentative
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]
If you want to know the other graces of Allah, listen to the CD: Allah's blessings to Mankind.
The likeness of those who were entrusted with the (obligation of the) Taurat (Torah) (i.e. to obey its commandments and to practise its legal laws), but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is as the likeness of a donkey who carries huge burdens of books (but understands nothing from them). How bad is the example (or the likeness) of people who deny the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah. And Allah guides not the people who are Zalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers, disbelievers, etc.). (Al-Jumu'ah 62:5)
Allah calls these wicked scholars donkeys
They tell the Muslims they can join the kaafir army.
Allah also called them dogs in Surah 7:175
And recite (O Muhammad SAW) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away, so Shaitan (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray. (Al-A'raf 7:175)
And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect. (Al-A'raf 7:176)
It is haraam to be in the parliament where they are making a mockery of Allah's Deen
These scholars cement the thrones of the apostate leaders
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]
On the authority of Ziyad bin Hudayr: "Umar said to me: Do you know what can destroy Islam?" I said: "No." He said: "It is destroyed by the mistakes of scholars, the argument of the hypocrites about the book (of Allah), and the opinions of the misguided leaders." [Sunan al-Darime (1/82) No. 214, Mishkat al-Masabih (1/57) No. 269, Abu Naeem al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul Awliya' (4/196)]
You believe these wicked scholars that give you evil fatawa because they graduated from Azhar etc.
Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves, while you recite the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)]! Have you then no sense? (Al-Baqarah 2:44)
It is hypocrisy to enjoin something good on the people when you yourself do not practice it
This Ayah is similar to Surah 61:2
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)
When they capture Muslim prisoners they strip them naked and parade them.
But if you do that to their prisoners they will cry out Geneva Convention.
Castro uses Abu Ghraib pictures to hit back at US : http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/world/archives/2004/12/19/2003215792
But if you know about the Geneva Convention why did you do that to the Muslim prisoners?
They stage disasters and cry wolf so many times.
Their own allies don't trust them.
Their allies don't want to go into Syria because they cried wolf so many times
This means you have an image crisis.
But this time it was for real.
Bahsar Al Assad did carry out the chemical attack.
The rockets came from government-controlled territory and they landed on territory controlled by the mujahideen.
The Shiites carried out this attack. They are worse than the Jews.
If they hadn't cried wolf so many times, they would have been able to muster support against Bashar Al Assad and he would have been toppled.
Asalaam Alaiqum dear Shaikh ... My cousin’s husband left her as he was having out of marital zinnah affairs. She hasn’t gotten an Islamic divorce from him as yet. How does she obtain one and does she have to return his dowry back? JZK ALLAH KHAIR.
You don't return the dowry because she is doing faskh (annulment).
A lot of men in darul harb have affairs because only the strong survive there.
If you divorce a man by khula you return the dowry.
That is when the man is good in character but there is a lack of chemistry.
Faskh is when the man is evil in character so you keep the dowry.
