THE APPLICATION OF REVELATION: BY SHAIKH FAISAL [MAY 29 2013]



The Application of Revelation  
(Part 1)

By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal

20 RAJAB 1434 / 29th MAY 2013

Notes by AT8 & AT10

Final Edit: Muminah_29/
Post by Abu Hafiza

This topic is important: We will be taking a look at Usool ul Fiqh.
We are talking about how to implement & apply Allah’s Revelation.

WHAT IS THE REVELATION? -

The Revelation is Quran and Sunnah.

The Hadith which is the revelation is divided into two categories:

Hadith NABAWI and Hadith QUDSI

The Hadith Qudsi is called the Sacred Hadith.

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF THE HADITH QUDSI? 

The Hadith Qudsi is a Hadith in which the meaning came to the Prophet (saw) from Allah, by way of inspiration and revelation.
Hence the Prophet (saw) expressed the Hadith in his own words.

Hadith-e-Qudsi a term used which signifies that the meaning of the Hadith is from Allah T’ala, and the words are related from the Messenger of Allah (saws), unlike the Qur’an where the meaning and the words are both from Allah.

Hadith-e-Qudsi is not a separate book or Revelation of Allah T’ala like the Qur’an, and the exact same science and investigation that is needed to determine the authenticity of any Hadith will be used to determine if the Hadith-e-Qudsi narrated by the narrator from the Messenger of Allah (saws) is indeed authentic or not.


WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE HADITH QUDSI AND THE QUR’AN? 

 There are four differences:

1: - With the Qur’an the words and the meanings are both from Allah

However, with the Hadith Qudsi, the meaning is from Allah; but the Prophet (saw) expressed the Hadith with his own words.

2: - We recite the Qur’an in Salah, - However we cannot recite Hadith Qudsi in Salah

3: - The Holy Qur’an is Mutawaatir (widespread)

While not every Hadith Qudsi is Mutawaatir.

4: - To read and recite the Qur’an is an act of Ibadah, 

Each letter you recite gives you ten Barakah (blessings), You do not get ten barakah for each time you recite each letter in a Hadith Qudsi.

There is no doubt that you get barakah for reading Hadith, but not on the same level as reading Qur’an.
All these things are called Mustalah Hadith and Usool ul Fiqh

Some examples of Hadith Qudsi:

Allah Has Forbidden Oppression, For Himself and He has made it Haraam for the Muslims to Oppress Each Other:

On the authority of Abu Dharr Al-Ghafari, of the prophet is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord is that He said: "O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another....
 

[Related by Muslim.]

Verily My Mercy Prevails Over My Wrath:

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (SAW) as saying: Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: "My Mercy prevails over My Wrath." [Al-Bukhari (7553), Muslim (2751), Tirmidhi (3543), Ahmad (7297)]

I Am As My Servant Thinks Of Me:

On the authority of Abu Hurayra (RA), who said that the Prophet (SAW)said: "Allah the Almighty said: 'I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm's length, I draw near to him a fathom's length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed."
 

[al-Bukhari (7405) also by Muslim (2675), at-Tirmidhi(2388) and Ibn Majah (3822)]

Mankind abuses Me By Abusing Time:

On the authority of Abu Hurayra (RA), who said that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Allah said: 'Sons of Adam vent anger against [the vicissitudes of] Time, and I am Time, in My hand is the night and the day.'" As the Almighty is the Ordainer of all things, to vent anger against misfortunes that are part of Time is tantamount to venting anger against Him. 

[Bukhari (also by Muslim).]

An example of cursing time:

You look at yourself in the mirror; and you notice how your beard has become white and your skin is wrinkled and you are 60 years old.

You say: "Look what time has done to me".

You start to curse the time and vent your anger against time.

THE FIVE MOST IMPORTANT REVELATIONS OF ALLAH 

1 - The Scrolls of Abraham (a.s.)

2 - The Psalms of Dawud (a.s.)

3 - The Torah of Musa (a.s.)

4 - The Injeel of Isa (a.s.)

5 - The Qur’an of Muhammad (saw)

From all these five revelations only the Qur’an remains intact
The others have been corrupted, or fallen into oblivion.

To prove to you that the Qur’an is protected Allah Said:

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

(Al-Hijr 15:9)

The other verse to prove that the Qur’an is protected Allah Said:

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

(Fussilat 41:42)

Allah has promised to protect the Qur’an; So those who believe that the Qur’an is corrupted are accusing Allah of breaking His Promise of protecting the Qur’an.

This is the plight of the Shiites because they believe the Qur’an is corrupted in its present form.

To prove to you that the previous books have been corrupted Allah said: 

Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, "This is from Allāh, "to purchase with it a little price! Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for that they earn thereby. 

(Al-Baqarah 2:79)

The Prophet (saw) said do not believe the People of the Book and do not reject them.

HADITH:

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The People of the Book (Jews) used to read the Torah in Hebrew and then explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. Allah's Apostle said (to the Muslims). "Do not believe the People of the Book, nor disbelieve them, but say, 'We believe in Allah and whatever is revealed to us, and whatever is revealed to you.' "
 

[Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 92, Number 460]

The Prophet (saw) saw Umar reading the Torah, and he became upset:

HADITH:

It was reported that the Prophet (SAW) became angry when he saw that ‘Umar had a page with something from the Torah written on it, and he (SAW) said: “Are you in doubt, O son of al-Khattab? Have I not brought you something shining and pure? If my brother Musa were alive, he would have no choice but to follow me.” 


[Musnad Ahmad(3/387) No. 15195 and Sunan al-Darime (1/126) No. 435]

He became upset because what he was reading was a corrupted text.
The reason Allah is protecting the Qur’an, is because the Qur’an is the final Revelation.
There was no need to protect the previous revelations because they are abrogated by the Holy Qur’an.
Allah protected the Qur’an, because the previous books are obsolete.

We were created to apply Allah's Revelation.

Hence Allah Said:

And I (Allāh) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone). 

(Adh-Dhariyat 51:56)

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE?

The whole purpose of our creation is to Apply Allah's Revelations
This is the purpose of life

Hence Allah Said:

And I (Allāh)created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone). 

(Adh-Dhariyat 51:56)

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

(Ash- Shuraa 42:21)

Allah Mentioned the Jinn first because they were on earth 2000 years before Man was created.
The whole purpose of creating man is for you to worship Allah.
Whatever Shariah you practice is your deen Allah Said: 

He could not take his brother by the law of the king (as a slave), except that Allāh Willed it. 

(Yusuf 12:76)

'Deen al-malik' here means the Shariah of the king.
The Kuffar practise Democracy because that is their deen.

Allah is Asking you a question in Surah 5:50

Do they then seek the judgement of (the Days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allāh for a people who have firm Faith. 

(Al-Ma'idah 5:50)

ALLAH IS ASKING US IF THE SYSTEM OF JAHILIYYA IS WHAT WE ARE SEEKING

This ayah is telling you that Only Allah Has The Authority To Legislate your Deen for you.
Ibn Kathir, Ibn Taymiyyah Allama al Shinqiti and Shaikh Ibn Baaz used this ayah to make takfeer on those who implement man made laws.

Ibn Kathir (rh) said: “So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-Yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW). Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims.” 

[Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, (Vol. 13, p119)]

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.” 

[Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)]

'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. 

[Adwa' al-Bayan, (7/162)]

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullaah Ibn Baaz said:"There is no Eemaan for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." – 

["Risaalat Wujoob Tah'keem Sharee'at Allah' Pg. 39, which follows the "Risaalat Tah'keem Al-Qawaneen" Published by "Daar Al-Muslim"]

In the above-mentioned fatwa of Shaikh Ibn Baaz he has made takfeer on those who dismantle the Shariah even if they believe in their hearts that the Shariah is better and more encompassing.

Do you want the laws of Jahiliyya to judge for you?

Do they then seek the judgment of (the Days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgment than Allah for a people who have firm Faith. 

(Al-Maidah 5:50)

Ibn Kathir used the above-mentioned ayah to make takfeer on those who dismantle the Shariah.

No priests, rabbis or Shaikhs can give you a deen.

Only Allah Has The Authority To Legislate your Deen for you.

Hence Allah said:

And He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." 

(Al-Kahf 18:26)
 
Historically, there has always been a tug of war between those who want to apply Allah's Revelation, and those who want to apply abomination.

Abomination = Haram things, (Evil and corrupt desires)

Even in the Time of the Prophet (saw):

The best generation was the generation of the companions (ra) of the Prophet (saw).

They tried to get the Prophet (saw) to compromise in applying Allah's Revelation.

A woman from the Makhzumiya tribe borrowed the expensive jewelry of other women and refused to give it back.

The Makhzumiyah tribe was a very powerful tribe.

The Prophet (saws) commanded the Sahabah to cut off her hand.

So they approached Usama, because they knew that the Prophet (saw) loved Usaama, to go and ask the Prophet (saws) to relax the punishment for her.

'A'isha reported that Quraysh was concerned with the case of the Makhzumia woman who had stolen something and they said, "Who will speak to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) about her?" They said, "Who is bold enough to do it except Usama ibn Zayd, the beloved of the Messenger of Allah?" Usama spoke to him and the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "How can you intercede when it is a case of one of the legal punishments of Allah Almighty?" Then he stood up and spoke and said, "Those before you were destroyed because when a noble among them stole, they let him be, but when the weak among them stole, they carried out the legal punishment on them. By Allah, if Fatima the daughter of Muhammad were to steal, I would cut off her hand."
 

[Al-Bukhari (3475) and Muslim (1688)]

Even though the Sahabahs were the most noble and pious; they approached the Prophet (saw) and asked him to relax the application of the law.

This proves that people always have problems applying the Revelation of Allah.

Historically people struggled to keep up with the rules. Hence they struggle to surrender.

Evidence for cutting the hand of the thief: 

Allah Said:

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 Allāh. And Allāh is All Powerful, All Wise. 

(Al-Ma'idah 5:38)

FIVE REASONS WHY ALLAH IS THE ONLY LEGISLATOR 

1 - He is the Wisest of Judges

Is not Allāh the Best of judges? 

(At-Tin 95:8)

2 - He Is The Most Merciful.

A country governed with man-made laws has no mercy in its legal system
They will tell you that ignorance of the law is no excuse.
You do the crime, you pay the fine, or you do the time.

Whereas Allah has Made His Mercy Prevail Over His Wrath:

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (SAW) as saying: Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: "My Mercy prevails over My wrath."
 

[Al-Bukhari (7553), Muslim (2751), Tirmidhi (3543), Ahmad (7297)]

3 - He Is The Most Just.

Allah Said:

Allāh is never unjust to (His) slaves. 

(Al Imran 3:182)

Allah is not tyrannical to His servants. He has made oppression Haraam on Himself and Haraam among us:

HADITH:

On the authority of Abu Dharr Al-Ghafari, of the prophet is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord is that He said: "O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another.


[Related by Muslim.]

You think haraam is upon you only.

There are a lot of things that Allah Has Made Haraam for Himself:

- It is Haraam for Allah to oppress,

- It is Haraam for Allah to lie,

- It is Haraam for Allah to create another creation and give him the same power as Himself

- If Allah created another God like Himself, there would be fitnah.

Allah Said:

(If there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allāh above all that they attribute to Him! 

(Al-Mu'minun 23:91)

Each god would want to seize his own Creation

Each god would want to run away with what he created, there would be fitnah.

It is haraam for Allah to beget a son because He has no wife:

Allah Said: 

How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything. 

(Al-An'am 6:101)

The Christians say Allah committed suicide, He begot a son, He had an affair.

The Christians say Allah came down on earth in the form of Jesus (a.s.) and died on the cross for mankind to have salvation hence they are accusing Allah of committing suicide.

It is Haraam for Allah to break a Promise.

Allah Said: 

"Our Lord! Grant us what You promised unto us through Your Messengers and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection, for You never break(Your) Promise." 

(Al Imran 3:194)

Those who believe the Qur’an is corrupted are kuffaar because they are accusing Allah of breaking His promise to protect the Qur’an.

When you refuse to call a kaafir a kaafir you become a kaafir yourself.

It's a principle of Takfeer.

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

(Kitab al-Tanbih wa al-Radd 'ala ahl al-Ahwa' wa al-Bida’, by Muhammad Ibn Ahmad al-Malati)

4 - Allah Is Objective And Not Subjective.

5 - He Has Nothing To Gain From The Law And This Is Why He Is The Best Of Lawgivers

Allah is independent from the law
Allah has absolutely nothing to gain from us.
Even if we were to become the most righteous people on earth it would not increase anything in Allah's Kingdom.

HADITH QUDSI:

On the authority of Abu Dharr Al-Ghafari, of the prophet is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord is that He said: "O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants ,all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you.

O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and you will not attain benefiting Me so as to benefit Me.

O My servants were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to become as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything.

O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more than a needle decreases the sea if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good praise Allah, and let him who finds other than that blame no one but himself." 


[Related by Muslim.]

When you take out insurance you sign the document, but you forgot to read the small print.

So the insurance company will not give you any money.

They will make an excuse, i.e. we do not cover against natural disasters,

The lawgiver cannot be a person who has something to gain from the law.

THE ICC: The Hague: The Africans are protesting about the court.

They say they are coming after the Africans with this court, but Bush and Blair are above the law even though 

they are war criminals but they want to arrest the Sudanese president for alleged crimes against humanity.

Why don't they arrest Bush and Blair for killing a million people in Iraq with an illegal war claiming they are looking for weapons of mass destruction?

The ICC makes its own laws and prosecutes people they don't like or who are in their way. They are extremely racists.

Bush and Blair are given red carpet wherever they go even though they killed a million people in Iraq with an illegal war.

In the Islamic State NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW

Hence the Prophet (saw) said if my daughter Fatimah should steal I will cut off her hand

It was narrated from Jabir that: A woman from Banu Makhzum stole (something), and she was brought to the Prophet. She sought the protection of Umm Salamah, but the Prophet said: "If Fatimah bint Muhammad were to steal, I would cut off her hand." And he ordered that her hand be cut off. 

(Sahih) 
(Sunan an-Nasa'i Vol. 5, Book 46, Hadith 4895)

Allah Said: I Created you therefore I command you:

His is the Creation and Commandment. Blessed be Allāh, the Lord of the 'Alamīn (mankind, jinns and all that exists)! 

(Al-A'raf 7:54)

- Allah knows your needs He knows how you think.

- Allah knows man more than any psychologist He knows our natural instincts.

- Allah knows the nature of man more than any psychologist, sociologist or historian.

- He knows our natural instincts perfectly well because He is our Maker.

Allah Said:

Do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a miserable price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers. 

(Al-Ma’idah 5:44)

Therefore those who do not govern by what Allah has revealed are AL-KAFIRUN

The Wicked Scholars claim that the takfeer that was made in the above-mentioned ayah is for the Jews.

However the sincere scholars say that when you say this is for the Jews, you are insulting Muhammad (saw) because you are insinuating that the Shariah of Musa (a.s) is more valuable than the Shariah of Muhammad (saw).

To dismantle the Shariah of Allah is major kufr and not minor kufr, regardless of what era the Shariah was dismantled it is deemed as major kufr.

It’s because of this reason the Jews were turned into apes and swine because they dismantled the Shariah of Allah during the era of Prophet David (a.s)

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

These wicked scholars try to put a spin on the Ayah and claim that those who dismantle the Shariah are disbelievers of a lesser degree.

Allah has divided mankind into 3 categories in Surah Baqarah. Hence a person is either a Muslim, a Kaafir or a hypocrite.

As for the fourth category that the wicked scholars have concocted i.e. disbelievers of a lesser degree that does not exist in the Islamic creed.

The expression disbelievers of a lesser degree is a newly invented matter and a cursed innovation and no one believes in such erroneous expressions except a Madkhali and other lost souls.

Historically there has always been a struggle between Hizbullah and Hizbu shaytan

Hizb-Allah = Those who apply Allah's Revelation

Hizbu-shaytan = Those who apply abomination.

HOW DO WE APPLY ALLAH'S REVELATION ? 

The Scholars gave us fifteen methods of applying Allah's Revelation:

This is called USUL AL FIQH - The principles of Fiqh

The first source for understanding our deen:

THE HOLY QUR’AN.

Jabir ibn Abdullah (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said in the Jumu’ah khutbah: "...To proceed. The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error..." 

[Sahih Muslim (2/592) No. 867]

In the above-mentioned Hadith the Holy Prophet (saw) said the best speech is the Book of Allah therefore the Holy Qur’an is the best source by which we apply Allah’s revelation.

There is no difference of opinion that the Qur’an is the first source.

The Second Source:

THE HADITH

There are people who call themselves ‘Quraniyoon’
They reject Hadith as the second source of applying Allah's Revelation.
They have the audacity to quote the Qur’an to give evidence to reject the Hadith.

The Ayah they use is Surah 6: Verse 38

We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. 

(Al-An'am 6:38)

Then they claim that the word HADITH linguistically means GOSSIP.

They say: "So why should I take my DEEN from Gossip?"

These people are called the Parvezis. They are the followers of Ghulam Pervez

They claim that we have Kitaab Allah, why should I follow Hadith.

We will now use Qur’an and Sunnah to flush their dodgy ideology down the drain.

We say to them:

If you were believers in the Qur’an, then you would consequently believe in Hadith, because we were commanded by Allah in the Qu’ran to follow Hadith:

We say to them: 

Allah Said: 

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

(Al Imran 3:31)

The second proof we use against the Parvezis is Surah 53:3-4

Allah Said: 

Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. (An-Najm 53:3)

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

-The Qur’an is 'Wahi' [revelation] and the Hadith is also 'Wahi'.

-In the above-mentioned ayahs Allah declared that Hadith is Wahi therefore an authentic Hadith has power to make things fard or haraam just like the Holy Qur’an.

-It is for this reason the Hadith was used to make gold and silk haraam for men and halaal for women.

Abu Musa Ash’ari reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Wearing silk and gold is forbidden to the men of my Ummah. But (they are) allowed to their women.” 

[Sunan Tirmidhi (4/217) No. 1720, Sunan An-Nasa'i (8/161) 5148]

Eg. Sadaqatul Fitr which we pay after fasting in the Holy month of Ramadan was made fard by Hadith.

“Narrated Ibn Umar (RA): Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) has made the payment of Sadaqat-ul-Fitr obligatory, either one Sa’ of barley or one Sa’ of dates (per head) on young and old people and on free men as on slaves.” 

(Hadith No. 1512, Book of Zakat, Sahih Bukhari, Vol.2).

Also we have to recite Surah Fatiha in every single rakah of Salah

This was made fard by Hadith:

Narrated By 'Ubada bin As-Samit: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "Whoever does not recite Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid."

[Al-Bukhari (756) and Muslim (394)]

It is haram to marry two sisters and live with them simultaneously,

This is found in the Quran.

But in the Hadith we find that you cannot marry the aunt and the niece simultaneously.

Narrated Um Habiba: I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Marry my sister, the daughter of Abu Sufyan." He said, "Do you like that?” I said, "Yes, for even now I am not your only wife; and the most beloved person to share the good with me is my sister." The Prophet said, "But that is not lawful for me (i.e., to be married to two sisters at a time.)" I said, "O Allah's Apostle! By Allah, we have heard that you want to marry Durra, the daughter of Abu Salama." He said, "You mean the daughter of Um Salama?" I said, "Yes." He said, "By Allah! Even if she were not my stepdaughter, she would not be lawful for me to marry, for she is my foster niece, for Thuwaiba has suckled me and Abu Salama; so you should neither present your daughters, nor your sisters to me." 

[Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number #43]

Another example: We take Jizya from fire worshippers, is only found in the Hadith

'Umar did not take the Jizya from the Magian infidels till 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf testified that Allah's Apostle had taken the Jizya from the Magians of Hajar.
 

[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 53, Hadith #384]

The Hadith is also considered to be REVELATION, because Muhammad did not speak from his hawaa (desires).

Another Ayah we use:  

Allah Said:

And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allāh. Verily, Allāh is Severe in punishment. 

(Al-Hashr 59:7)

THE KNOCKOUT PUNCH:

The following ayah is considered the knockout punch for the Parvezis

And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad SAW) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'ān),that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. 

(An-Nahl 16:44)

The above-mentioned ayah states that Allah sent Muhammad (saw) that he may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them.

So the purpose of Muhammad (saws) was to use the Hadith to explain the Qur’an clearly to the people.

So Allah told you to pray five times a day, But Muhammad (saw) taught you how to pray.

During Tashahhud, you must recite AS SALAM ALAN NABI and NOT Assalamu alaika ayyuhan nabi
 
It’s the Grave worshippers who say " Assalamu alaika ayyuhan nabi" in tashahhud because they use it as their Hujjah to worship Muhammad (saw) and to scream ya Rasoolullah!! when they gather to celebrate the Prophet’s birthday

The following Hadith of Bukhari is the evidence that the Tashahhud has been changed:

Narrated Ibn Mas`ud: Allah's Messenger taught me the Tashah-hud as he taught me a Sura from the Qur'an, while my hand was between his hands. (Tashah-hud was) all the best compliments and the prayers and the good things are for Allah. Peace and Allah's Mercy and Blessings be on you, O Prophet! Peace be on us and on the pious slaves of Allah, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and I also testify that Muhammad is Allah's slave and His Apostle. (We used to recite this in the prayer) during the lifetime of the Prophet, but when he had died, we used to say, "Peace be on the Prophet." 

(Sahih al-Bukhari Vol. 8, Book 74, Hadith 281)

The Third Source - IJMAA

Ijmaa = Consensus, Agreement.

Ijmaa means consensus. A total agreement amongst the scholars. It is derived form the word Jama'a

The four great Imams believe in Ijmaa

The Dhahiriyyah don't believe in Ijmaa

They say that Ibn Abbas kept quiet about many things because he was afraid of Umar.

There are three type of Ijmaa:

1 - THE IJMAA OF THE SAHABAHS:

Example: To grow the beard is fard.

Example: If you abandon Salah you are a Kaafir

Abdullah ibn Shaqiq Uqayli (RA) reported, saying “The companions of Muhammad (SAW) did not regard neglect of any of the deeds as disbelief as they did (neglect) of Salah." 

[Sunan Tirmidhi (5/14) No. 2622 and Mustadrak al-Haakim (1/48) No. 12 who said it met the conditions of Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

 Jabir (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Between a man (Muslim) and shirk and disbelief lies neglect of salah.” 

[Sahih Muslim (1/88) No. 82, Sunan Tirmidhi (5/13) No. 2620, Sunan Abu Dawud(4/219) No. 4678, Sunan Ibn Majah (2/181) No. 1078, Sunan An-Nasa'i(1/232) No. 463, Musnad Ahmad (3/370) No. 15021]

2 - THE IJMAA OF THE FOUR GREAT IMAMS:

Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam Malik, Imam Sha'fi, Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal.

They all agreed that a woman does not make up her missed Salah due to menstruation.

Example: When a woman menstruates she makes up the fast she missed but not the Salah she missed, - all the four Imams agreed on this.

Only the Khawaarij (Puritans) women would make up the Salah they missed due to menstruation, because they think themselves to be very pious.

Narrated By Mu'adha: A woman asked 'Aisha, "Should I offer the prayers that which I did not offer because of menses" 'Aisha said, "Are you from the Huraura' (a town in Iraq?) We were with the Prophet and used to get our periods but he never ordered us to offer them (the Prayers missed during menses)." 'Aisha perhaps said, "We did not offer them." 

[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 6, Hadith #318]

3 - THE IJMAA OF THE UMMAH

The Ijmaa of the Ummah is so powerful that a person is considered a zindeeq (heretic) when they go against the Ijmaa of the Ummah.

Examples: 

-The Ijmaa of the Ummah states that there is no prophet after Muhammad (saw).

-Hajj is only compulsory once in your lifetime if you have the health and wealth to make Hajj, the Prophet (saw) only made hajj once.

-The best human being to walk the face of the earth was Prophet Muhammad (saw)

Allah warns those who go against the Ijmaa of the Ummah in Surah 4:115

Allah Said:

And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell - what an evil destination. 

(An-Nisa 4:115)

Those who follow other than the believers way are guilty of going against the Ijmaa of the Ummah so they will burn him in Hell forever.

If you go against the Ijmaa of the Ummah, your destiny is in the Hell-fire

Whatever the Muslims see as good, Allah Sees it as good, and Whatever the Muslims see as evil, Allah also Sees it as evil:

HADITH:

Ibn Mas'ud (RA) said, "Whatever the Muslims see as good is good with Allah, Whatever the Muslims see as bad, Allah sees as bad."
 

[Mustadrak al-Haakim (3/83) No. 4465, classed as Sahih by Adh-Dhahabee]

Ibn Mas'ud (RA) said, "Indeed Allah looked into the hearts of the servants and found the heart of Muhammad (SAW) to be the best of the hearts of His servants and so He chose him for Himself and sent him as a Messenger. Then He looked into the hearts of His servants after Muhammad and found the hearts of the Companions to be the best of the hearts of the servants. So He made them ministers of His Messenger fighting for His Deen. So whatever the Muslims see as good is good with Allah, Whatever the Muslims see as bad, Allah sees as bad."


[Musnad Ahmad (1/379) No. 3600]

EXAMPLES OF THOSE WHO GO AGAINST THE IJMAA OF THE SAHABAS OR THE IJMAA OF THE UMMAH

1 - The Goofy Sufis:

They deny what is known of Islam by necessity.

They claim to follow Imam Abu Hanifah, Malik and Shafi’i yet they go against their creed because all Sufis claim Allah is everywhere.

It is known of Islam by necessity that Allah is above His Arsh

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked , ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” 

(‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

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

[Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa TabaqatAl-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

Imam ash-Shafi'i said: "The creed which I hold is the same creed the Muslims before me were holding, namely, the Testimony of Faith: "There is no god worthy of being worshipped except Allah, that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah, and that Allah is above His 'Arsh, above the heavens. He descends to the lowest heaven whenever He wishes Imam ibn Khuzaymah, a Shafi'ite himself, said: "Whoever disacknowledges that Allah is above His 'Arsh, above His seven heavens, and that He is separated from His creatures, is a Kafir, (unbeliever). Such person must be ordered to repent and disavow his belief, or else he must be beheaded and thrown on a garbage dump so that neither Ahlul-Qiblah nor Ahludh-Dhimmah be annoyed by the foul odor of his carcass." Abu Bakr Muhammad at-Tamimi, a Shafi'ite Imam of Naisabur, said: "I do not pray behind a person who denies the attributes of Allah and does not recognize that Allah is above His 'Arsh." 

[Al-Juyush al-Islamiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, p. 93]

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal was asked "Is Allah above His 'Arsh, above the seventh heaven, separate from His creatures, and is His knowledge and power encompassing everything everywhere?" He replied: "Certainly, He is above His 'Arsh and nothing escapes His knowledge." 

[Al-Juyush al-Islamiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, p. 123]

The holy Prophet (saw) has affirmed that Allah is above the Arsh in the following Hadith and anyone who does not accept the Hadith is a zindeeq (heretic).

It is narrated that the companion Mu'awiyah ibn al-Hakam, (RA) slapped his servant girl who used to tend his sheep, and as a result went to the Prophet (SAWS) and asked what should be done as an atonement for having slapped her. The Prophet replied, "Bring her to me" so Mu'awiyah brought her to the Prophet. The Prophet then asked her, "Where is Allah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allah's Messenger", so the Prophet said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer." 

[Sahih Muslim (1/381) No. 537]

In the above-mentioned Hadith the Prophet (saw) accepted the answer of the slave girl that Allah is above the Heavens and he commanded her master to set her free because she was a true believer.
But according to the goofy Sufis (may the curse of Allah be upon them) her answer was wrong because Allah is not above the Heavens Allah is everywhere.
The following ayahs also prove Allah is above the Heavens:

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty) 

(Ta-Ha 20:5)

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

(Ar-R’ad 13:2)

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

(Al-Mulk 67:16)

2- The Berailvis:

They claim Prophet Muhammad (saw) is alive in his grave, and he hasn't lost any of his faculties.
The holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) was a human being who came about by parents so he suffered pain, disappointments and death like everyone else.
In this regard Allah said:

Verily, you (O Muhammad) will die and verily, they (too) will die. 

(Az-Zumar 39:30)

 Abu Bakr said about the death of Muhammad (saw)

Abu Bakr said, "To proceed, if anyone amongst you used to worship Muhammad, then Muhammad is dead, but if (anyone of) you used to worship Allah, then Allah is Alive and shall never die. Allah said:"Muhammad is no more than an Apostle, and indeed (many) apostles have passed away before him...(till the end of the Verse)... Allah will reward to those who are thankful." (3.144) By Allah, it was as if the people never knew that Allah had revealed this Verse before till Abu Bakr recited it and all the people received it from him, and I heard everybody reciting it (then).
 

[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59,Hadith #733]

3 - The Saudi Salafis:

The Saudi Salafis claim that to dismantle the Shariah of Allah is a minor kufr therefore the person who dismantles the Shariah is still a Muslim perfect in Iman.
They went against the Ijmaa of the Ummah
They claim to follow Ibn Kathir and Ibn Taymiyyah, but Ibn Kathir and Ibn Taymiyyah said; it is known of Islam by necessity that if you dismantle the Shariah you are a kaafir.

Ibn Kathir (rh) said: “So Whosoever abandons the wise Shariah which was revealed upon Muhammad ibn Abdullah, the seal of the prophets, and goes to other abrogated Shariah for judgment, he becomes a Kaafir. So how about the one who goes to al-Yaasiq (man-made law) for judgment and gives it precedence (over the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW).Whosoever does this has become a Kaafir by the Ijma of the Muslims.”

[Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah, (Vol. 13, p119)]


Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.”
 

[Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)]

Shinqiti said: While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. 

[Adwa' al-Bayan, (7/162)]

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

[Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]

In the above-mentioned fatwa Shaikh Ibn Baaz said whoever dismantles the Shariah of Allah is a kaafir even if in his heart he believes that the Shariah of Allah is more encompassing.

4- The Shi'ites:

They say Allah broke His promise to protect the Qur’an hence they say the Qur’an is a corrupted text.

SHIA HUJJAH: The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

Allah promised to protect the Qur’an in the following ayahs:

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)

Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allah) 

(Fussilat 41:42)

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)

They also claim that their Imams know when they are going to die;

They choose when they are going to die and they don't die unless it is their will

SHIA HUJJAH: The Imams know when they will die, and they only die by their choice. 

(Al Kafi vol.1 p.258 )

ONLY ALLAH KNOWS WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO DIE:

Allah Said:

No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allāh is All Knower, All Aware (of things). 

(Luqman 31:34)

Their pathetic ideology contradicts the Quran.

5 - The Qadiyaanis:

They claim Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a prophet after Prophet Muhammad (saw).

6 - The 'Nation of Islam'
They said Elijah Pole was a prophet after Muhammad (saw).

Elijah Pole was a pervert; he impregnated many 13-year-old girls.

The proof that Muhammad (saw) is the last Messenger and Prophet

Allah Said: 

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


(Al-Ahzab 33:40)

HADITH:

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


[Al-Bukhari (3535) and Muslim (2286)]

7 - The Ashaa'ira:

They claim that Allah is devoid of two Hands but Allah told us in the Qur’an that He created Adam (a.s.) with Own His two Hands.

In this regard Allah said:

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

(Saad 38:75)

It is incumbent on us to believe that Allah has two Hands but they are not like our hands because Allah does not resemble His creation.

The clock on the wall has two hands but they do not resemble the hands of human beings. Likewise the Hands of Allah are not like our hands.

When we read Surah 38:75 where Allah says He has two Hands we do what the Sahabahs did, we read it, we believe it and we leave it.

We do not deny the ayah neither do we try to explain the word hands to mean something else because we have no evidence to prove the word hands means something else.

No Sahabah said the word Two Hands mean two powers like the Ashaa’ira are claiming.
The Sufis, the Shia, the Berailvis, the Ashaa’ira and the Mutazila reject the concept that Allah has two Hands and claim Allah’s Two Hands mean two powers.

Allah warns us against those who argue about His Names and Attributes in the following ayah:

And when you (Muhammad) 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 wrong-doers, etc.). 

(Al-An’am 6:68)

The above-mentioned verse is a warning against the ideologies of the Sufis, Shia, Ashaa’ira, Berailvis and Mutazila.

Also it is a warning against all the deviant groups and heretics who deliberately misinterpret the Holy Qur’an in order to spread disinformation in the Ummah.

May Allah save us from the fitnah of all these stray sects.
